brain behind a frame, see what I’m thinkin
oh the sins, we choose to participate in
blatant… blank stares,
straight thoughts. no chasers.
we just laid there, we left pain there
came as we made shame there
the situations crazy, uncomfortably I blame it
on the fact that were just lazy, and it remains so complicated.
waste my breath, but I’d rather save it
i’m into recyclin’ baby,
#ORGN just so amazin’
and I swear you’d probably praise it
but maybe I’m just faded and this love has got me gone
I would’ve asked if something was wrong
but you were just too busy be bein’ grown and on your own.
the thought of you alone
keeps me worried, how you doin?
am I stupid or far gone…
or just to far from home…
i’m so eaaaaaaast.

forget me not… i want you to r e m e m b e r.
bless the rest.
i knew this king,
he sat high above intimidation & right below arrogance.
without plannin it… he gave a chance to all ✞rilldren
while building a rap kingdom where he resides…
all in sight of his wonder, tried to compete for his wonder
wonder why he sits alone on the throne, waiting for the next contender.
spilling out a couple words & all you ever heard was
“king kills kent.”
unsure of the meaning only knowing it was repeated after a peasant left defeated
so i pleaded with the king; “what’s real don’t have to be stated, what’s authentic don’t have to be mentioned.”
war between worlds, diamonds & pearls… they want the glory so bad.
so blasphemous, a story ‘bout the last lad will have you laugh at his….
according to legend, he stepped against the rap master
rehearsing a flow that he could not flatter… a fly with
but he tried it
unworthy of a chapter in the kings raptures
so his majesty whispered… and let it linger
“king kills kent.”
when the night has come
and the land is dark
and the moon is the only
only light we see
no, i won’t be afraid…
no no no no no no
just as long, just as long..
just as long as you stand by me.
