Cup for the Saints


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is more spoken word delivery than hip hop flair, the track has a warbly effect that sounds like its going to stop working at any moment, much like I was when I delivered this, predominantly freestyled.

Lyrics
It was the noise of cancellation that came off of pouted lips, that slammed into my fabric like the sound of broken ribs/ left me staggering through the tunnel, on coming train didn't see it/ decapitated my inner frame and I couldn't stop the bleeding/ off the sagging rafters her laughter was like a demon/ that put me in the dust and dust was what I was breathin/till I was levitated, laid out on soiled sheets/ broken whispers in the night, last moment on her feet/ then she moved like Perseus, with wings I couldn't take/ and her eyes leveled buildings with the words that they made/as I slipped out of Egypt into Babylon's courtyard/ I wasn't trying to see her, it hurt to breathe so hard

Hook: I'm sorry I think you missed sir, how could I be a saint from scripture (2X)

Racked there in pain as I lay there on the bed/ till Seraphim's came to remove me from my head/ carried me down to breakfast, hand fed me the perfect letters/ spoke to me like a baby, held me as soft as eagle feathers/ as I inched into the leather/ parched lips peeled back the peach/ till I crumbled into the arms that massaged my crippled feet/ and like a Teacher with a thought/ all that's missin was some chalk/ that's when He said "Its time to get up and walk"/ so like a paralytic, I came sic with it/ Lord said "get up and walk" and I'm a stick with it/ see the crowds be amazed/ to see the dead from the grave/ opposition comes but I know I'm going to be okay/ yeah...I'm a be okay

Hook: I'm sorry I think you missed sir, how can I be a saint from scripture (2X)

Like an eagle with her young, I could hear you sing/ covered by you in the shelter of your wings/ felt so betrayed, broken vows shattered to pieces/ how could something so beautiful get covered up in feces/ and my brain wasn't right, got emotional leeches/ speakin in my ear, giving me suicidal speeches/ much like death, can leave you speechless/ or perhaps like a babbling brook, you just speak--- less/ one more menial task, till you breathe less/ felt like no one would care if I breathed less/ but you came and you are my breath so in You... I breathe less/ and you give me wings when my arms are deformed/ with you I can reach the highest heights like the Airborne/ I should of been left for dead, but in you I am an heir born/ and I'm prone to fall asleep at the foot of your throne.

Hook: I'm sorry I think you missed sir, how could I be a saint from scripture (4X)

vocal track
the vox has a sound like it's clipping really bad - is that deliberate?

I preferred your delivery in the first tune, but hey - personal preference, I suppose.

Thanks Harold
I appreciate the feedback, I am looking into the clipping business, as far as the delivery I def use different forms, the next song will be a little different as well, perhaps u might like that one or perhaps not, regardless I appreciate your productive criticism, thanks again.

I like your delivery on this track. You should post the lyrics, but then again I know its hard to write down something you've freestyled.

Freestyle
Man, I couldn't freestyle if my life depended on it. It would complete cheese. Folks that can do that pi** me off! LOL. Not diggin the warble that much, but I like everything else about the trk. Especially the distorted vox, actually.
