My delusions of grandeur are far bigger than your assumptions Far past the comprehension and narcissism I really do feel like Im the faeces you perceive me to be Lay your thoughts still I step forth with course direction This self-esteem A worthy weapon to these obstacles Ive grown accustomed What I do not speak into existence will only fall by the waist side Waste not want, wanting not to be a waste is only a crime to The disheartened crowd Simmer down, simmer down Would it be selfish if I prayed for patience When the only time I do is when my soul feels vacant?

Where should I begin? Man upon a mission still a martyr for the vision Had to find my voice when the people wouldnt listen Sacrifice my peace know my level double digits I sacrifice my pride rather die than lose my spirit Had to take a minute let my lyrics match my mind frame Funny how these bars had me trapped inside a mind state If I see the mornin Im just happy Im alive Stomach cut from bottles that I harboured deep inside Still a broken glass, aint no trippin over spilled milk How many times you fake it just to show you the real deal How many you inspire leave you out the conversation How many mini mes do it take to be the greatest Let them take my flesh if it means I feed the nation, mh Let me kick my feet up and admire my creation, uh School of hard knocks pay my dues and graduate them Come a long way from hopping fences at the station Pull up entrance like my exit, I just came to show face Winter losses made me humble but Im falling from grace Know Im talking bout the action when youre running in place We made something out of nothing just a regular day We made something out of nothing no applause for that Mama do that every day and no awards for that Ive tried, it was hard, so unfortunate Scars heal even when they say theyre permanent I was happy at my lowest cause I learn from it I made hits out my sadness had to earn from it I might cop a Maserati just to learn in it I might cop the Maserati just to swerve in it Where do I begin? H-O-X-T-O-N, thats what Ive been, uh I had to get it, aint no slipping where I live, uh I had to wake them, they were sleeping on a kid, uh Wait Where do I begin?

yeah yeah, I get it, I understand. It’s fine. It’s totally understandable feeling an instant connection or attraction to someone or wanting the affection of a partner I get it I understand. I wonder what the uncertainty feels like. Constantly walking the fine line of infatuation. We seem to give so care and much attention to perfect strangers actively helping them indulge in their own narcissism. Assembling in masses to fall prey to the beck and call of the people we consider amongst the beautiful, the cool, the interesting. All the attention might be, what fuels the insecurity. so many longing to give you some kind of feeling. physical, emotional, mental. Anything. You always seem to make the wrong choices. Why are you so afraid of being alone? hmm… I’ve never found my self much of a party goer She echoes compliments in my name despite the fact I hardly know Her core the colour yellow, weather sunshine or stain who cares, her petals shape a leos mane or gust of cluttered leaves and such Stuttered speech and awkward stares. She claims her feet are planted but her roots seem to be hardly here. We long to find our selves. Alone to delve deeper into common grounds. Two perfect strangers, the musics loud I watch her mouth. Her speech is wayward. Body language tells a perfect tale of two playful simbas I search for symbols of attraction or a means of lust. I crack a joke, she cracks a smile and claims I play too much. Laughs again pats my arm and transitions to a lingered touch I attempt to wow her with amateur philosophy speak in riddles as if i care about the state of Syrias democracy. The news is fickle.   People change. Life is strange that way. We ghost our selves, mourning as we lay awake. I think too far ahead, my mind has wondered. To this second chance at a first impression I read expressions like a mirror. Her voice is new, but her face familiar It must be twitter. Distance between us now mirrors the size of the earth we stand on. Minutes stand still, Still we do not question where the times gone. She said do you believe in love? I said does a requiem dream? We crave for the chance to trance in love like hits of opium. see, Ita so addictive. Karl Marx once said,religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature. The heart of a heartless world and the soul of soulless conditions It is the opium, of the people. But to Marx I argue is it religion or love? Love has the same effects on the brain as taking cocaine. Power, greed, money. It is that pleasure of dopamine that fuels corruption a selfish instinct to want and have. In conclusion I argue, it isnt religion that is the opium of the people. It is love. LOVE! We know, this world is small and this we know come waltz with me before you go X 8 I saw her heart drop to her stomach as she described her love for the wind…. The wind would lay with me, shoot the most gentle breeze through my petals. Pull my interest and never question where I stem from. Mutually sharing love, as he would share me and my interests simultaneously. Through my petals he would pump an ecstasy I would fiend after every hit. Bruising, I would excuse and still fiend after every hit. Losing. Feeling till the rush of pain felt more a numbing bliss. My memory is not what it used to be. Empathy. I stare at her with perfect empathy I notice every imperfection, questioning how someone so perfect can be so flawed she was the unforeseen picture of a princess after the happily ever after. the remnants of Rembrandt’s pallet the Daisy who envied the thorns of a rose a bouquet of statements like “the world just doesn’t understand me” I told her understanding is half the battle what ever that means… it sounded nice or “Burdens are for shoulders strong enough to carry them.” consider that, I wanted nothing more than to place the weight her world on my back at las’ we stand fractions away from an action we’ve anticipated whole heartedly from hello; I notice her every detail the goose bumps on her skin I proceed with a hug simply to shelter from the wind I feel her blood pumping through her flesh and envy it’s presence lean in for kiss a picturesque moment in frame heart pumping harmonious fear with every second she stopped me.. and said I didn’t catch your name.

I used to walk past a cemetery  On a pathway to my boys house to Sit, get lifted and dream about How we wanted to live. Irony  In actions. Fractions of honesty  Divide People into factions Those who will And those that actually will I guess things aren’t what they used to be Memory lane had the yellow bricks removed And The pavements now seem stained With cigarette ash and shards of broken Glass Smells like home The sirens A familiar melody. But doesn’t sound the same Without the nickelodeon theme tunes I would To drown out sounds. Oh nostalgia You wicked wicked temptress you I remember If not through the eyes of The innocent who else could see potential  For limitless, second nature. survival A mind set primitive.  Adapt and discover, that Pound coin won’t stretch past that panda pop,  These days… It’s monkey see what monkey do  For the trees. Forest fires and friendly conversation  Searching Amazon for new ways to burn The Bambu Smoke filled lungs till Speech slurs. streams of consciousness Tangled. Gathered, with like minded.  A demand for retribution if left with the roaches Burned it’s ooh ah ah ooh We haven’t come that far Since evolution.  Stand two feet No alpha male But still blessed with Another tale of the hypocrite Still blessed with the eyes of The vigilant. See senses fall To pensive states of temporary Aspirations. Then pass it on, like Tales around the camp fire Unified in dream state Then put the blind the blind folds To our ear drums for session of ignorant bliss Like I aint really worried about nothing I swear I aint really worried about nothing I thought the grass would get greener Once I came off the trees, seeking the high Has me throwing away loose leaves like Autumn. See me clearly, that same primitive Thought we evolve from like Dar-winian theory I wonder why we choose to stay in the dark Like the pigment of Stevies vision when it’s Hard to see our pigments as equals or Any effort to engage your conscience Must been seen as conscious Accept the consequence But never will I beg pardon on truth The reality simian, but the fact are simple It’s human instinct. As humans Instinctively we adapt to survive Or destroy. Same difference I wonder why we choose to stay in the dark Like the pigment of Stevie’s vision but some Love the blind folds of ignorance It’s a shame to see, the spiralling direction Of self expression. jaded eyes see Only see jaded solutions Money Money Money shall rain down On our daughters and we shall applaud And cheer like the the arches in their back Coupled with the rhythmic patterns of There gyrating hips can summon condensation Honey Honey Honey brown skin will be bleached To be appreciated. Hungry Hungry Hungry Stomaches will call our brothers to arms Over pussy weed money because it sells And thats all we know I am no martyr for a message I’m no better but know better One body, a shoulder to lean A head and mouth to speak Truths piercing your flesh A leg or two to stand on Whenever in need.  And They still got my niggas hanging from the trees Can’t see the truth when it’s 6 feet deep x2 Like I really worried about nothing I swear I aint really worried about nothing

We no longer need to close our fists for the revolution. The open palm may show you, our separation is man made. Made in aid of cementing thoughts that turn John Doe to Adolf. Where they see we weeds we see seeds see We no longer need to close our fists for the revolution. I’ve seen flowers grow and petals fall from mountains surrounded by estates and suburban terrace housing. Heard notions of positivity discarded like pieces of puzzles. Muzzled echoes of greatness in fear Society may not feel the same elations. We no longer need to close our fists for the revolution We must be heard. From the depths of our bellies From the lump in our throats When questioned on our perceptions But fail to mention. We must continue to be and be in unison. Be and be in unison. Like troops with with lowered arms and open palms. We no longer need to close our fists for the revolution Its amazing. To witness the hierarchy of power you deem acceptable How the masses would rather Hand decisions to the individuals Individuals back to masses In termly political rituals Stand beside me. Not as followers as thinkers So we no longer have to look Up for guidance we can look Side by side What side are you on. We are no different No age No class No Color No Race Like troops with with lowered arms and open palms. Where they see we weeds we see seeds see We no longer need to close our fists for the revolution Oh he must be worthless if his occupation doesn’t match your level of patients Oh he must be urban if his cadence drops vowels lower than where his trousers sit. Oh he must be They don’t know my history Oh he must be They don’t know my history For the knowledge they ripped it out the pages call us thugs and beasts when we protest on stations because embedding of thoughts is what has a nigger run a nigger to the slave ships Stop snitching. Patience All I ask is patience Fear the brother on my shoulder Because he could take my life right now And we act like we don’t know no better. I so solemnly swear No I don’t really give a fuck No I don’t really give a fuck One hand up, other hand gripped on my nuts shake shake man I spent your advance on my lunch No I don’t really give a fuck No I don’t really give a fuck One hand up, other hand gripped on my nuts shake shake man I spent your advance on my lunch You can’t say that, you can’t say no you can’t black you can’t say My brother what you afraid of? we ain’t got to cry no more My brother what you afraid of? we ain’t got to cry no more My brother what you afraid of? we ain’t got to hide no more My brother what you afraid of? we ain’t got to die no more

I cant find the words to save the day for you And I dont really think that thats my place for you Part the reason why the world weighs on you But Im just happy that I knew I gained from you You would think the skin Im in was made for you You tell me your truth and Im a slave for you See me spill loosely lyrics and useless truthers, huh I see you perfect, I see me flawed and mix my words Misdirect, reflects, I consider my egos worthless If everything I give is only based upon your worth I would tell you everything I needed to confess Think about me more the world could think about me less Never said these words, forever lost in my regrets Spilling deeper in these notions, oceans decorate your flesh

You claim I’m just 5ft charm with an accent My way with words has nothing to do with the attraction A one on one with a one of one You gave me a second but I’d be happy with a fraction A book worm with a tell-tale heart We could Edgar Allan Po’ up for the potency Clued up to the trap, you said my lies sound like poetry Couldn’t deny the fact I was startled by your honesty You probably have me mapped, I ran out of apologies Couldn’t begin to count all the fucks you said you don’t give I assure you have my focus. Reassured By the change you give to homeless That’s a mighty big heart, any room For the hopeless romantic poet plotting heights at his lowest? Still spinning from conversations we haven’t finished There’s no use in us pretending May I lower my defences? Tell the truth My pride my defendant Serve my life in a sentence Stay a night, lose the friendship Say the cycle is endless You ever tried trusting before you love? You ever tried knowing before you touch? I see your exterior, cold as when summer went Youve heard this before, just not as eloquent Deja Vu We could be great together We could be Yoko and Lennon We could be we forever On top of the world We could create a family Stop all war and poverty Lay in bed on top of me And love till we die Love Love, love, love Love, love Days in daze, my thoughts on you, said your guard was bulletproof Since Ive nothing left to lose, could we build upon the truth? Let me give you all your flowers while you’re still alive to tell them That you’re thankful for their scent Use my ears just like a diary and I promise not tell Daddy could’ve taught you better but your momma raised you well This is not a love song, this is not a love song This is not a love song, this is not a love song This is not a love song, this is a love intervention This is a love intervention My pockets empty enough to rest your heart in Intercourse our new catharsis, flowers for dearly departed Feelings of being guarded, I was still pushing daisy You said my EP was decent, I still thanked you for listening Since people consider pressing play part of the privilege We sat under stars, watched the world planet demise Carve our initials in earth so the world knows that we tried You dont need the validation Kindness for congratulations is hard to trust Open up, you pull up, I roll up You dont smoke, Im more blunt Talked Xs instead of kissing hugged and said our goodbyes Tongue tied, imagining tongues tied to sweet nothings Make my heart your home Let me drown in your opulence Let me drown in your-- All I ask, if you can, hold me down Show me love through the turbulence You ever tried trusting before you love? Knowing before you touch? Loving before you... Listening before you lust? Dialogue, body language Learn a lesson in us Drowning inside your mental Liquid like conversation This is not love song, this a love intervention This is a love intervention This is a love intervention This is a love intervention
Look at all the seeds I done sowed Somebody call the reaper for me Shit is getting old I never gave respect to a wolf in sheep’s clothes I never shared a bed with a lady who weren’t woke Lord knows Ok x 4 You know i’m lying Could have Martin Luther King But had dreams of King of Diamonds Adele was chasing pavements I was busy ducking sirens Could never play a dull boy Please i’m busy shinning Can’t rewrite the past No way that’s a long story Saw roots before I saw Toy Story I’ve seen pictures where They left a nigga’s guts gory So I never gave thanks they Took the land from me Oh, cut the cheque All I want is 40 acre’s A mule and my respect All I want is hard food My dues and diligence Why we only shed a tear when Blood spills in the west I got these chains on me Feel like mansa, feel like musa Took this gold from me Feel like Midas with the touch Might clutch this rosary No more interviews for free they Took this gold from me This is big lips, hands still Swinging from my nuts I’ve been high through all My lows, so i’m belligerent As fuck. i’m from the land where Walking like your shook could get you Touched. 10 toes, to the pavement Want a ride? then saddle up I can tell you about the struggle I’m from the culture where we bow To greet our mothers. My daddy Taught me nothing free except the knowledge We taking notes and send that change Back to our brothers. Oh you silly Motherf— Cut the chat, cut the cheque All I want is 40 acres a mule and My respect. No apologies for my cadence Tempered words have got me vex Want it now, I want all my dividends We aint buddies, we aint friends I’ll take it all back for the ends Gimme Gimme that Another penny for your thoughts Never needed that. Tears don’t dry on their own I’m going back to black I just lost another Brother so i’m back in black Look at all the seeds I done sowed Somebody call the reaper for me Shit is getting old I never gave respect to a wolf in sheep’s clothes I never shared a bed with a lady who weren’t woke Lord knows Oh, you want it factual. The destruction of my people Wasn’t tactical. Found my patience and peace Inside of parables. Till I figured were far too gone To be rational. Feeling like Chris Ofili in some finger paint Painting pictures on the same text books where toby Limped away, don’t. Bite the hand that feeds when You’re scraping of my dinner plate. Don’t act surprised I’ve been this way Coping I’m a slave for this path I’ve chosen No escape from these Sleepless moments Oh coping I’ve tried my best I’ve lied my best This curse is mine
Pillow talk way too risky I cant trust these moments You might use them against me Make me more like the old me, phoney Dick might make you distant Slowly I might lose my focus Keep coming back like Jehovahs Witness baptised in your ocean Argue first, that dont work Love is war, in reverse Pain is pleasure and rehearsed I was hopeful at my worst Thirsty thirsty, sans serif or cursive Way more honest in person Youll find you in my verses and I find me in your mercy Dig deep till we both in hearses I might let you in Forgive my future sins yeah Soak it up oh soak it up Burn me like your cigarettes Yeye I werent just your new regret Didnt feel words they hurt me with them Didnt really think you intend to offend But I said Id never let one hurt me again Swerve the offence, serve the pretence Cant play ball like Fergie and them Homegrown truths cant focus on them Cause Im lonely again, phoning again Zoning again Drunk text, drunk kiss, drunk sex Lovesick, love lust, love less Late night, lay cool, latex Dont know peace but I know patience Lie to me slowly, mind you control me Ive seen the real you act like you know me Grind on me closely, dont get too cosy If youve seen the real me then why dont you show me Soak it up oh soak it up This is now what weve become Pressure makes fun of love It hurts but thats just what it was I might let you in Forgive my future sins yeah I might let you in Forgive my future sins yeah
I swim deep in liquor and shallow conversations Them LA nights a trip. I remember.  You would tell me. I mean how could I forget.  I often waited for your text. Paragraphs and paragraphs Of I could only wish.  All before I felt your lips.  All before I felt you drip.  Drip feed me food for thought.  I was starving. I was cold  I’ve been lonely. Ive been told Love might wander Wont get lost.  Where you going? What you need? You yell back your paranoia I turn up the jodeci.  And roll up some marijuana I know you dont really smoke But you took a couple tokes Must be stressed out Maybe I can ease the pressure.  I can tell that you been I can tell that you been Stressed out Shaé I just got 700 pennies at my last show But imma spend it all on you Came here wearing nothing but my ego But I can take it off for you My grain pepper my scalp nappy The world is too loud and my head hurts The silence go down like Titanic. Swim good In that good good Like why panic? The intimacy don’t make you feel love? Quite tragic How you only came around When I kept you coming More apparent.  Were too impatient to Love like parents You parrot my every thought  A parody of your emotion Like Where you going? What you need? You yell back your paranoia I turn up the jodeci.  And roll up some marijuana I know you dont really smoke But you took a couple tokes Must be stressed out These flowers cost me 700 pennies,  I could never put a price on your thoughts It cost too much. To pay you anymore attention Id be fool in love. Maybe ive fallen.  For the allure of. Man made mistakes  So you could lose some decorum and feel Better the morning.   Chrorus
OBONGJAYAR I’ve showed you my darkness Fed you my flesh You made anthems of my tears Im no super human I can’t save you and save my self Im no super human Super MICHAELA COEL I built my ideals on standards I learned as an infant and then imagined my own, like most curious teenagers no? I watched my peers walk a path far different to mine and grew more confident with my own solitude Politics, love, manhood and sexuality I discovered like a blind lamb in the hands of a unfamiliar shepherd With coloured pigmentation you must accept that your historically pivotal leaders will more than likely be killed With darker pigmentation you become an example of exoticism under a western microscope Elements of your identity appropriated and sold back to you with less than clever tag lines And through it all you must smile And continue to dance Yeah keep dancing Knowing the revenge will taste so much sweeter once you’ve made it
I was told: never marry a muse, meant many things But probably to keep illusions intact I mean who likes the truth anyway? The only thing Ive ever known to share thornes with roses Ramble but keep it all to myself Fish that swim shallow beg to be caught Tangled in nets thrown to water by the nosy Mind your own, Company could be sweet Ive been known to cut ties But real wives no wise men still need advice Sometimes I wish talking to you was easier The writers curse is to never feel solitude If they can write words, theyre … Never mind Pluck your petals, Pluck my petals until theres nothing left and so were Scared and bare like newborns or buried seeds Lets begin again You said, To love a man, you must love all of his flaws Another bedroom wall Another face in the pillowcase I dont recognise Laid bare next to a stranger like newborns without the innocence My feet dangle off the edge of another relapse Hunting for love like opium and lapse of lost souls That are just like me with a little more hope If what you say is true I admire your patience Women should be more careful with the men that they pick But to love a man you must love all of his flaws As you would say, To give your heart is to understand it may be broken But I cant fix these soiled thoughts if you wont let down your guard -Then I wear my flaws on the surface like memories beneath scars Then cover them with outfits made of false confidence and au revoirs Merely a man made of mistakes stitched together with good intentions Sharing earth with other angels who dont deserve their wings, you mentioned Manipulation, love and lies all go hand in hand Who hurt you? Who hurt you? You said, you’re constantly ready to be thrown away to excuses Who hurt you? You said, to be with...to be happy, you cannot be mutually exclusive You said, it’s virtually impossible to accommodate without losing value in self value You said, I want to be with someone who makes me happy, Someone who appreciates me for who I am Someone who is proud to be with me and wants people to know about it Who hurt you? Was it me?

I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to shoot Ive come way too far to play these games with you Utopia My paradise is burning You hate to see that Im learning My fears get thrown in the furnace I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to shoot My fingers dance around the barrel A barrel full of laughter The trees loud enough to make me paro They tried to throw stones on my shadow My posture more van gogh Attire more regal I dress like a man of the people A crown on my chest I see death through the people I see death and just spud him I don’t fear no evil I don’t say I’m sorry Regret was my teacher Now they look at They look at me like their speaker I guess I should speak up When it’s time to speak they are no show vocal Chords stressed from progress Ten stacks on practice.

My star sign stubborn My minds been made Be the greatest or nothing I was so sure, my skin supple like steel That spotlight mine. Gave a fuck how you feel My belly still feel empty, I dare you to tempt me Seen people die for less, seen mothers cry for more Justice was never served for skin darker than yours I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to shoot Ive come way too far to play these games with yo Utopia My paradise is burning You hate to see that Im learning My fears get thrown in the furnace I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to shoot Its the same shit, new wounds from old faces Gracious I barely stepped out the matrix Heinous, parasites and traitors Heinous But my spirit can’t be wavered Amazing? Me and my passion stood adjacent My only worry she look at me like we strangers I’ve seen you naked when your heart was still vacant Youve seen me weak enough to tell you we might make it Thats what we wanted. If a nigga kills a nigga That’s one more nigga for the profit One less one less body in a prison One less, one less story bout’ a victim Channel 5 paint as the killer Pay me like the winner Hope that keep me silent Hope they keep me silent So much power in my silence It was nights like this It was days like those I would sit in my room Cross legged and focused Listening to the blues That boo boo davis Mama Im so tired All sounds like the same shit I cried so much, took the salt from my pores Rub the sweat in my wounds Made a vow for the cause You can take my life they gone remember me more As a man of my action as a man of my words

Bad mine Still im coming for the crown, yeah that time Yeah That time. Little bit late like black time Oi big man. Oi big man. Black skin don’t mean come Trick man.

All the fake love make man cold, know I know been that. Know I been this. Know I been down, now they call man king BEAT TWO Pen up pepper then spray Tell your wifey behave. You couldn’t imagine Scenario patterned. We split it a couple ways It’s only the money we chase. It’s only the bruddas we trust They chitter, they chatter they think that badder But that dont get none of you paid Still I’m looking for a challenge, while im building on my balance A couple feelings got an abandoned Heart colder than a bando Oh wait that’s your man doe Won’t hesitate to get him handled Henny got me feeling rambo Painting pictures like im van goh Poor traits on a canvas. Basquiats in the mansion She don’t love me cause I’m handsome Still i hold the pussy ransom Me on my lonely, kenzo sleeve so cosy Lungs stay smokey. Know I cant lack. They know me now Face so bait. I roll deep Big no bag no fashion Suttin light to put in the racks in Lights camera no action. All talk and no savage What you flossing on gram with? I just double down in taxes Cop my mama something fancy Hid the rest inside the mattress Wakanda rich. Aspirations x2 Stacking digits on a slow grind, always been a man of patience Only winners at the table. We don’t owe your boy no favours. brothers still killing brothers please don’t let the cain get able BEAT 3 Either way I’m here forever they know that May not pose for the kodak but gave you wisdom like Yoda Found bass in your vocal but that dont make you no solider Winter made you grow colder, finding money for heat No that was no easy feet. Until I did it myself I came in on my lonely and Mother Natured my health Bet that they miss the old me. The one they didn’t support Bet they copy the blueprint and try forget me of course. Until I switch the cadence, never seen no vacation. Ain’t no stranger to work. I’m in tune in with demons I tell them do their worst. This my gift curse This my testament verse. Scribble this on hearse I’m no stranger to patience, I’ve been tested by fate. I look death face. And say I’ve been before I am angalou’s pen. Last breath of shakur If I really spoke my mind would they Truly endorse. Man made I am fiction Bet love my addictions. If I drown in the Sauce and gucci down to my socks If I start my own business And hit the belly like ross Will they build the black business or Let it fall to the floor Let it burn to the ground While we riot for peace While they sit and they watch From their chariot seats I’m in mariott suite Im on the 50th floor Wearing every damn chain That I couldnt afford Coming through the front door no keys Dreaming that we make it until then no sleep Nothing left to lost, Pray they comes I am still a legend when i’m 6ft deep Top missing, face in the scope If the juju don’t work. Pray the shot misses I got my hand on the bible, I swear It was my fault i’m sorry if I failed Another lost nigga. They say it What they don’t preach. I say it’s What don’t teach. If the politicians Then the children don’t flinch. I know mothers In the system. I got brothers in the wing and we Will not go to war for mans sins. On life Milk tokens, 40 pennies for the bus. Now we bus down, 40 something odd on the coffin. Lay a concrete. Double back and count our losses It was just another day when they leave with no options. Windows down hear the screeching when The tire starts. The people are tired and that’s Exactly when the fire starts. We felt stuck. Gentrifying all our neighbourhoods. Who helps us? Comprising on our livelihood While they sit and they watch From chariot sear. I’m in mariott suite Im on the 50th floor. Wearing every damn chain That I couldnt afford

The sins set on Saturday evening and sons rise on Sunday to the sound of Get up. We are going to church Even with the eyes of a minor, I knew my mother was just as much endowed with her spirituality as I guess Intuition told her the streets will not raise this child As we pass police tape and hat-tipping constables, I would be laughing every color like light with stained glass windows and be reminded of how fickle life is When was a kid I went to primary school with just got life. I would envy the wings of a pigeon But I never understood why they choose to stay pecking for scraps in inner city blocks Holding hopelessly to the next piece of bread that comes in their direction, as if a little was enough Honestly speaking, I only felt guilty when abused, piu or burning incense, they dont remove the scent of faux pas There was no kumbaya; I did not care how amazing Grace was - this was not for me Understanding the philosophies behind verse was childs play, yet childs play seemed more enticing than an hours service of contradictions I went to what many would call a white church The bread tasted like paper but the wine a cheeky Merlot Pardonne moi je me although I did not feel belonging to Two minutes til service ends removed concern Two weeks later a man who would teach me Sunday school got arrested for selling cocaine I once went to a black church I shared pigment with my peers but felt more alien than ever Prayer so intense they served more as a distraction than an inspiration Indignation riddled my core when I saw how much the collection played with the minds of the poor Eyes closed, tears cascading down side by side with saliva as native tongues would call to the heavens, and I would simply watch, notice the posters, with the pastors face on it His watch seemed nicer than most. Logos, buzzwords, slogans, spilling from the lips of the host. This service was a business Alas, there I am, on a Sunday humming to a hymn His blood is in my hands his bodys in the bread But before that I was taught by an elder to question everything, to see and doubt everything, to whose really in control of the scriptures A game of Chinese whispers couldve diluted what was said And with all this Christian merchandise, feels like somebodys using his body [Chorus}: Preacher, preacher tell me will I get to heaven Ive only been sinning half as much as you Dont condemn me, dont condemn me, dont condemn me, lest you walk at least a day in my shoes Now whos right? And whos wrong? And whats light? And whats the truth? Or are we all just living proof? {Verse 2]: Years went by, Im older now, sins set on Saturday evening and sons rise on Sunday to the sound of Im going to church. You should come. My mother was no longer in doubt, but intuition told me the church would not change my mother When she spends the whole night worrying exactly how she would keep the lights on, but scrapes together her last penny to put in the pocket of her church Whod sell her wrist bags for five pounds because it will bless you Handkerchiefs made holy with a fee, DVDs, guided prayer MP3s because it will save you But I will be damned if the church saves my mother before I do Preacher serving blessings to masses like cocaine Disregarding he do to a life darker than Coco Bees that still taste as sweet Miss the pastors judgement and you might hear me weep tears of joy to know my mother just wants the best for me But cant see past the a small principle : Just want the best for you. You just want the best for me I just want the best for you. You just want the best for me : Preacher, preacher tell me will I get to heaven Ive only been sinning half as much as you Dont condemn me, dont condemn me, dont condemn me, lest you walk at least a day in my shoes Now whos right? And whos wrong? And whats light? And whats the truth? Or are we all just living proof? : Preacher, preacher tell me will I get to heaven Ive only been sinning half as much as you Dont condemn me, dont condemn me, dont condemn me, til youve walked at least a day in my shoes Now whos right? And whos wrong? And whats life? Whats the truth? Tell me whats the truth Or are we all just living proof? All just living proof, all just living Preacher, preacher, yeah Are we all just, all just? Whos right? And whos wrong? But whats life? And what the truth, whats the truth, whats the? Living proof, living proof

Would you mind, if i took a second a to vent? Would you respect me as I man if I gave you anything less than me. My delusions of grandeur are far bigger than your assumptions. Far the past the comprehension of narcissism, I really do feel like the faeces you perceive me to be. Lay your thoughts still, i step forth with course direction. This self esteem a worthy weapon to these obstacles ive grown accustomed. What I do not speak into existence will only fall by the waist side. Waste not, want not. Wanting not to be a waste is only crime to the disheartened crowd. Simmer down simmer down quiet dog The strength of your bite is determined the power you put behind it. I would sit and dreams of moments that felt realer than my reality. My condition in the present was merely temporary, i would stare at my reflection and see that of a king. Crown crooked, projecting words to comfortably live. . What more can I give? I knew my worth, i knew my words could move mountains with the strength of a thousand and ten. A king. These towers keep us blocked, Seeing someone make it out, is rarer then a total eclipse. No salvation in television we found grace in what they couldnt prevent. The net. SB.TV breaded local celebs. Could you blame me, can you blame me if i wished to be like them? I mean honestly, subtract the hypocrisy Although I couldnt relate to what they present.. Could you blame me, can you blame me if i wished to be like them? My existence was more of the awkward teen, teamed with influences of bloc party and Jamie T My peers followed the path of the social networking. I needed to earn respect first, I studied the arts and art of networking in order to double my net worth. Have you ever been in a situation that made you feel like your moment was close? I saw my popularity increase once I increased the worth of my clothes. Listening to famous poets and the stories they told. Studied the books of Zephaniah Like the books Zephaniah. First page of my last judgement. Chapter Two. Hope the lord forgives the fact Im too proud to repent I became preoccupied with what I have to say in order to make an impact.  Really hope you listen. Back in the mirror, re assessing my vision. Truth be told... I almost died on a collision. 19.4.12. The line up, Kings. Pepstar Simz, Miller take InSight to then stature the of the acts theyve placed me within calibre. The night thus, Lauren. George, Suli, mic righteous. In comparison I lack lust. Got rejected from world star Made it on to link up. Still elated I felt like I could eat anything I could imagine. Collision, practiced to avoid the damage. Really hope they listen. Back in the mirror, re assessing my vision.   Black sheep in a lost jumper. Show time, butterflies rumbled To a thunder. Set prepared Im ready. its now or nothing Lights are bright. In the crowd saw Remel London Drew a blank Remembered something. I made it on to link up, i made it on to link up. Fist thumping on my chest the beats stop. Black sheep in a lost jumper. Show time, butterflies rumbled To a thunder. Set prepared Im ready. its now or nothing Lights are bright. In the crowd saw Remel London. I fumbled. Crap I think fumbled, clench my fest and Mumbled. Crap I think I fumbled. I needed to earn respect first, I studied the arts and art of networking in order to double my net worth. I boozed. I schmoozed I made it to remel london I made it on to link up I made to remel london Broke the ice with conversation Asked her how the show went ...she looked puzzled, then remembered. I felt like I could eat anything I imagine... The musics loud, She lent in... She told me to try rapping. Fuck. No salvation .... found grace in what I couldnt prevent. The net. I made it... Did i really? I wanted to be a king. Nearly. Holy Water, sip sip Tongue loaded with Truths in a full clip I wrote gun fight with a bottle Heard Paris is booked for glastonbury Popped a bottle in celebration Then downed it to drown my sorrows. Im next, man i have to be. Well actually.... My reflection looks foreign Where have you gone man? Searching your soul for answers but its useless And you remember how they would They would sing x2 So you search for answers in music And youre first note Comes in the form of Cee Major A lot of man doing the devils work While they cry out for god Oh my how were lost Oh my how Im gone. My delusions of grandeur are far bigger than your assumptions. Far the past the comprehension of narcissism, i really do feel that Im the faeces you perceive me to be Self doubt crucifies me constantly But like jesus I have risen from the tomb. Equivocally easter. 31.3.13 The tears of a quitter Graced the reflection if a winner After a conversation with la belle The bell rung, its feeding time at the tower and Im hungry. Havent eaten in last 19 summers but - The childish live forever -
Do you remember The day I said I’ll be the only one? Cause I remember the way you held my gaze my lovely one. By the river, underneath the mango trees my love You’re the one. You’re the one. Footsteps on pebble ridden beaches The sound of waves crashing make you calm Your voice leaves images of stained blue skies behind my eyelids Be no rain, be no rain. Empathy, clouds drop tears on your window And you touch to feel the windows pane You would say: A sweet nothing is nothing in comparison to an honest action Let not a single lie part from these lips Lies envy the beauty of the truth Call the birds to sing Ask the sun to rise Lay your heart in a bed of roses Take a snapshot of your smile Our first kiss was the last Nothing sweeter than nothing sweet I taste your honesty You share beauty with the truth Fuck! Now you might just be… You’re the one! Do you remember the day I said You would be the only one? ‘Cause I remember I remember how you would stand so still And stare at me until my knees would quiver Bow and arrows, musty rivers we would stand in And aim towards the stars we wished to reach. You completed me Yin to Yang, Yang to Yin We became one Intertwined minds and elements alike We understood... Fuck! Now you might just be...

How heavy do your ears feel Maybe, I can share that weight Wrap your worries ‘round the wind Watch it all fade away If only, there was space for me If only I could change and stop skirt chasing Letting my memories fade away It’s been a long time coming Fold fiction on fingertips hoping you might stay Cold description Who makes the victim when history picks the favour Favour if you may May came and changed the season you lost that spring in your step Sprinkle respect in my cadence when I call for you All for you It was all for you Awful polite goodbyes it’s kind of awkward now Thoughts are sound Slanted mouths Yellow face Haunted smiles Blue boxes and orchid flowers Here lies the departed I wish I could say that I will always be around I know you hear the howling every time that I go out And I wish I could say that I will always be around But I know you hear the howling every time that I go out Check Smile like a sinner in the summertime Speech like a prayer in the night I left another promise by your pillowcase Then bailed like a theft in the night Time is relative Lasting presence Delicate details more relevant Hanging onto your first words Morning texts felt like morning sex after you came first You always came first Champion your name like gladiators And battle for power during lonely hours You told me your fears I showed you my weakness I told you it’s safe I’ll hold all your secrets Dine on tongues ‘til we’re tied and speechless Speak less your silence is golden Frozen in focus your details are potent Poetry pieces piecing together your demons and omens I swim deep in liquor and shallow conversations Medicating to get my mind right Smiling like I’m not tired of trying to pretend like everything’s wavy when the tides high

With two hands, I made two wings and placed them on either side of my back The feathers were the Queens own, but for the soul, I had to put my faith in the wax All in aid of conquering dreams and escaping concrete Rain, sleet,I weather sleet, reign like King Minos, a throne These towers keep me blocked, these towers keep me blocked, afraid of the power in my vision Its nothing, were used to it, were only shocked that these scenes that we see somehow leave you shocked Are you, afraid of the power in my vision? Are you? You can have the sea, I cant swim; you can have the land, I stand tall I watch and study the pigeons, the hue of blues in these towers You look up and only see clouds, I look up and simply see power You say impossible I take an ice cube to the surface of the sun and make a date The dawn of our escape Wait. With two hands, I made two wings and placed them on either side of my back The feathers were the Queens own, but for the soul, I had to put my faith in the wax So lifelike, like life, so the details come from the pain I was the earlier bird who saw the early bird stalk prey Ive already ate, still feeling envy as I stand on two feet and he flys away Smile and let drops of happiness for his success spill off buds bitter with distaste Then craft my own joy in hopes that one day I will too, and use that same joy to craft these two wings I willed in to... Existing this existence Pace these roads with impatience, and feel discouraged by convenient lack of support for passion and dedication I stride, run, ghost, beat these two wings with all my might but only muster enough energy to fall It seems my heart was too heavy, too close to the sea I must shake these burdens, these burdens that fuel this lack of belief, soar with the power in my vision Are you afraid? Are you? Failure is only set in stone the moment you stop trying Id rather fly and start living With two hands, I made two wings With two feet, I made one leap With two minds, I made one fall With the power in my vision, I soar

They said fame and success doesnt make you a nice person Being nice doesnt make you successful Does looking for more make us focus more on what we lack? Is love in the temporary a struggle to get back? What do we give when weve given our all? If I gave you a pound a second It would only take twelve days to make a million Twelve days They said time was money, but how do you spend it How much is enough if too much is never enough?
