pick a lyric to how your life is right now

Recommended Posts

your apathy of thought

has lead you to believe

that things are what they're not

my friend you've been decieved

the easiest route rarely leads to the truth

i see the self approval glaze your eyes

you know you're right

no need to worry why

a thousand stones remain unturned

in the wake of your unquestioned answers

and truth covered lies

 

i cant reason with you

i speak words you can't hear

social conditioning left you with deafened ears

so i take your face in hand

see that look in your eyes

that rigormortis stare,

that look that i despise

and so i turn from you

i walk these streets alone

alone i search for truth

ideal that you've disowned

and wait with fingers crossed

and pray you'll someday find

a way to see things though your own eyes

I told you right from the start

A knife up to your throat for one put through my heart

Couldn't hold on and this I should've known

 

 

 

this one does it better...

AESOP ROCK

 

Now we the American working population

Hate the fact that eight hours a day

Is wasted on chasing the dream of someone that isn't us

And we may not hate our jobs

But we hate jobs in general

That don't have to do with fighting our own causes

We the American working population

Hate the nine-to-five day-in day-out

When we'd rather be supporting ourselves

By being paid to perfect the pasttimes

That we have harbored based solely on the fact

That it makes us smile if it sounds dope

I don't even know how I feel anymore........ god damn it

 

I can't count how many times I been the last one laughing

The joke is on me, cause see I keep crashing

My life is changing, really weird being here and there

But airplane flights and fighting long distance late nights

Doing double duty to a girl id love to live for

Thinking for ever, last alot, last long then I had planned on

Immortal is love, life isn't just a nice portal we go leaping through

I dig through dumpsters and rifle through the scraps

My spirit is starving, I am sad

I just wanted to walk my thoughts off and drink a cup of coffee

It seems like I can't sleep anyway, what am I doing here

My intentions span a mans attention, they pay me no mind

For I am the mother of invention

They say an ounce of pervention is worth a pound of cure

But I'm sure my intentions werent pure

In fact they acted so brazin

That's what forced me to leave this safe haven

And now I'm out in the storm having cut off my escape route

I slid through the some mud in a make shift rain suit

I was soaking wet and drug myself up from the bottom

 

 

I can't stop thinking I just hope I don't get caught

aaaaaahhhhhh, I break everything

all the time

FLIGHT OF ICARUS

 

 

As the sun breaks, above the ground,

An old man stands on the hill,

As the ground warms, to the first rays of light

A birdsong shatters the still.

 

His eyes are ablaze,

See the madman in his gaze.

 

Fly, on your way, like an eagle,

Fly as high as the sun,

On your way, like an eagle,

Fly and touch the sun.

 

Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears

Looks the old man in the eye

As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd

In the name of God my father I fly.

 

His eyes seem so glazed

As he flies on the wings of a dream,

Now he knows his father betrayed

Now his wings turn to ashes to ashes his grave.

 

Fly, on your way, like an eagle,

Fly as high as the sun,

 

On your way, like an eagle,

Fly as high as the sun.

 

 

 

 

because i wish i could fly away

i'm gonna shout until i'm hoarse,

drink until i can't see, laugh until i can't breathe,

up here we'll be taller than the city.

Shout at the night, raise a fist to life,

forget if your shoes are shined,

if only for just one night .

and our hearts have all been beaten and bruised,

and we're all pretty confused,

and we always expect to lose

i'll explain it all to you through alcohol and bad tattoos.

If i talk and i laugh too loud,

it's becuase i'm trying to forget that i'm sad,

because things can get pretty bad,

but i'd like to believe that somewhere i'll find

someone who's going nowhere and we'll go there together...

I don't want to be hostile.

I don't want to be dismal.

But I don't want to rot in an apathetic existance either.

See

I want to believe you,

and I want to trust

and I want to have faith to put away the dagger.

 

But you lie, cheat, and steal.

And yet

I tolerate you.

Veil of virtue hung to hide your method

while I smile and laugh and dance

and sing your praise and glory.

Shroud of virtue hung to mask your stigma

as I smile and laugh and dance

and sing your glory

while you

lie, cheat, and steal.

How can I tolerate you.

 

Our guilt,our blame ,

I've been far too sympathetic.

Our blood, our fault.

I've been far too sympathetic.

 

I am not innocent.

You are not innocent.

Noone is innocent.

 

I will no longer tolerate you

Even if I must go down beside you.

Because,

Noone is innocent.

________________________________

Constant over stimu-lation numbs me

and I wouldn't have

It any other way.

 

It's not enough.

I need more.

Nothing seems to satisfy.

I don't want it.

I just need it.

To feel, to breathe, to know I'm alive

 

How can it mean anything to me

If I really don't feel anything at all?

 

________________________________

 

i know that this might sound strange,

but i can't think of a better way to say that if i could find the words i'd tear them out of my throat

and crush them into your eyes.

so i wrote myself a list of things that i've been meaning to say.

i forced them out of my head, but i can't find your eyes.

i try to call it a truce, approach you crush them out of my life, convince you.

a walk is all that i need;

this ambiguity feels like a knife in me.

sixteen blocks without any thanks,

i feel that i think the cannons and tanks.

all of these wars that i try to explain get defused so many times so i play with my shoes,

i've learned to untie them with my eyes.

i try to call it a truce, approach you crush them out of my life, convince you.

call it a truce, crush them out of my life.

" up in the morning and of to school

mother says they'll be no work next year

qualifacations once the golden rule

are now just peices of paper.

 

Just because your better than me

doesn't mean i'm lazy

just because your going forwards

doesn't mean i'm going back.

 

if you read the bible then you'll get the job

in last years trousers and your old school shoes

truth is son this is a buyers market

they can afford to pick and choose.

 

Just because your better than me

doesn't mean i'm lazy

just because i dress like this

doesn't mean i'm a communist.

People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing,

Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin,

When I say that I'm o.k. they look at me kind of strange,

Surely your not happy now you no longer play the game,

 

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away,

Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me,

When I tell that I'm doing Fine watching shadows on the wall,

Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball?

 

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round,

I really love to watch them roll,

No longer riding on the merry-go-round,

I just had to let it go,

 

People asking questions lost in confusion,

Well I tell them there's no problem,

Only solutions,

Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind,

I tell them there's no hurry...

I'm just sitting here doing time,

 

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round,

I really love to watch them roll,

No longer riding on the merry-go-round,

I just had to let it go.

All the snow's turned into water

Christmas days have come and gone

Broken toys and faded colors

are all that linger on

 

I hate graveyards and old pawnshops

for they always bring me tears

I can't forgive the way they rob me

of my childhood souvenirs

 

Broken hearts and dirty windows

made life difficult to see

That's why last nght and this morning

always look the same to me

 

Memories, they can't be bought, and

can't be won at carnivals for free

 

Well it took me years

to collect those souvenirs

and I don't know how

they got away from me.

At night I cant sleep, I toss and turn

Candle sticks in the dark, visions of bodies being burned

Four walls just staring at a nigga

Im paranoid, sleeping with my finger on the trigger

My mothers always stressing I aint living right

But I aint going out without a fight

See, everytime my eyes close

I start sweatin, and blood starts comin out my nose

Its somebody watchin the ak

But I dont know who it is, so Im watchin my back

I can see him when Im deep in the covers

When I awake I dont see the motherfucker

He owns a black hat like I own

A black suit and a cane like my own

Some might say take a chill, b

But fuck that shit, theres a nigga trying to kill me

Im pumping in the clip when the wind blows

Every twenty seconds got me peeping out my window

Investigating the joint for traps

Checking my telephone for taps

Im staring at the woman on the corner

Its fucked up when your mind is playing tricks on you
