lyrics

I believe. . .
Just not the same thing as you

Of course I see the big picture, I framed it, dang it, I even geo tagged it and named it
But I still don’t understand the language
I’m stained with “insainment”
It’s not a word but I put it in laymen
That’s why I’m changing and standin’ in amazement that the people on the thrown are speakin’ from what looks like the mouth on their dome,
Disguised is a golden asshole
Uh oh, Yall cats are shook, because ain’t no such thing as the right good book
Look, I assume I’m dying tomorrow, so I dance with the Devil, drop beats God, he’s noddin’ his head, “man, yo, that shit is hot”
You’re offended, good, that line was for you
I’m offended everyday too, but unless your messin’ right’s or a life, do you
I have no time for your closed point of view
Because if there’s a plan for me, I got things to do
And If you can’t see my rhymes through the silver lining, then you’re simple minded.
I may as well be miming to a blind man
there’s no chance I’m holier than thou, but I’m wowed by the mindless walkin’ in the crowd
Your fake smiles are a cry for help, but you have to deal with the hands you were dealt
The real predicament is, if I was given everything in an instant, would I cease to strive
Is being human that need to want, whether it’s big or small, a meal or a car, would we die if we didn’t keep reachin’ for the stars
I don’t have the answer and neither do you
Despite what they say, the answers today may change
If you knew the start and the endin’, what would be the point of livin?
It’s that fear of the unknown that has us reachin’ for the answer, like a dope fiend
Reaching for something that contains nothing, it’s like a haunting
Always right behind us, and if they claim they have key, we latch right on, even if the solution is proven wrong
I’m guilty too, but I’m okay with the change
Because if you’re not open to the future, you’re a machine with no reveries
A true Runner knows about “electric sheep”, and the richest man that has everything has another scheme
So turn on your moral hi-beams and feel the blindness
Or bring your thoughts to the table for a new beginning, I’m listening
It’s never too late for another christening
You can’t teach a dog new tricks, it’s bullshit,
Hear something long enough you’ll start to believe it
I’ll B.F. Skinner you back into your own thinkin’
Start your own path of logic
For the search for answers is greater than an abundance of knowledge
And the man that finds his own path has the benefit of knowing everyone’s past including a new land
And that’s something even a machine can understand
And where I stand when I’m rhyming, is an island
Alone but the sun is shinin’
Because the church of blasphemy doesn’t need a pulpit for the spirit to sign in
Uh
