lyrics

Just tell me that it’s possible, livin off my writtens
I’ll die grippin a mic spittin fire to light rhythms
There’s voices in my cranium dissin like “why listen?”
“You spit about struggle, buggin, but filtered through white privilege”
…I’m trippin, these voices are mine
If you stare me in the soul you’ll see the void in my eyes
I can’t avoid the noise poison destroying my mind
So I’ll toil inside, each rhyme grinded from a rough spot
…while I shamble looking like a living mugshot
A rebel disheveled, I see in visions all bloodshot
…rapping yet I’ve fed on metal and punk rock
Never gonna settle, yet I’m betting on one shot
Caught in a stun-lock. I harden to lose it
While I’m chasing white rabbits in the art or the music
My muse is refusing, it’s stupid, maybe I’m late
But It’s all downhill so I’ll continue to skate

I’m ambitious but I’m lazy so I’ll shake the stress and stay in bed
Create a nest and lay to rest the path I chose to fake distress
…I’ll just make a mess, excuses halt the process
Give another week I’ll have a new unfinished project
I need to cut the nonsense, there’s a couple shows I’ve gotta book
Some verses left to finish and I’ve gotta fix this shoddy hook
…damn, I really ought to make another comic book
…not to waste a major. Rapper? Failed illustrator
…staring at the dust collecting on my bristol paper
I’ll complete the mission later, I’m a bitter hater
Fashioned from an ill creator. I’ve sampled
A path or two and cancelled plans to hide from empty panels
…from every angle I see kingdoms I’ve abandoned
Left in shambles, shit I’ve started but I never stick the landing
…stuck in plot holes thinking too pedantic
I stand between phantoms and fandoms banded into panic

[hook]:
Get up, get up, get up, get up outta the way
I don’t wanna stall, don’t wanna waste one more day

I thought I’d be a critic for a minute, spittin livid opinions
But even I’ve got my limits and that shit wasn’t fulfilling
…or maybe I just couldn’t commit
But I divided up my time like I was looking to slip
I think I’m hooked on this shit, self loathing, I’m a basket case
…inner demons gaining leverage with each passing day
Telling me that I should just quit, dip, and pass the blame
…now I mask the pain, living is a masquerade
…but this depressing shit won’t captivate an audience
Not that it’ll matter if I never put em onto this
And props’ll never come from only hard drives full of rawness, kid
…so let’s get em released, unleash demons to breathe
this hell fire and yall can start feelin the heat
…I’m done with passive masochist tendencies
My wanderlust must die before it’s actively ending me
I’m ready to burst before these thoughts get the best of me
