Description

RentsDue
had a track called

Get A Grip
which from the moment I heard it I knew I had to do something with it. So this is it. 2 verses a short amount of cuts and a vocal break that deals with sheep.

Enjoy.

Lyrics
I play piano with my eyes closed and sing with a whisper
To inner peace my thoughts like the eye of a twister
Child of a lesser
God with the chessier smile
blowing pipes from the flow logic pressure
Drowning in these thoughts, I attempt to hold my breath
Awakening from dreams like I never even slept
Drained of motivation like the squeezing of a sponge
And I can taste death like the bleeding of the tongue
Where is the light? for all I see are shadows
Genetically disposed to rule man like the Pharaohs
But socially enclosed from the wealthy ruling class
That pull strings of puppets to deny me of my past
Can I shape the future through daily meditation
Or am I powerless against this hell spawn creation
This abomination
Mis communication
Listen to my patience, but it speaks indignation

My soul disagrees with these thoughts of my mind
Self revolution for the species mankind
The dragon tells me that he's not a meat eater
But hidden in his closet is a bloody meat cleaver
Sheep led to slaughter by a false prophet Shepard
That fills us with lies of the threat of the leopard
So while we see the forrest as the beast and its threat
The shepard says grace before feeding on our flesh
Though one of us may know, the rest don't believe him
Security blankets feel much warmer than freedom
The gate may be open, but none want to exit
We trade free will just to feel we are protected

I'm having trouble getting by that picture. Powerful stuff Mitchell. Solid and somber backing tracks. Great vocal rhyme and tight rhythm. Well produced as well.

If you happen to know who was speaking the audio clip re: sheep staying together, and could drop a line to me much appreciated. It was voice I know I have heard before and its driving me nuts trying to figure here.

That pic
I know right? I almost didn't post it because it was, but then again I wanted the message to hit home. I will have to dig as to where I found the clip. I know it was on youtube. As soon as I find it, I'll let you know.

talent...
on a different dimension. It's not conventional music. This creation requires extraordinary skill of memorizing and articulating words that send a message. To meld it into a musical art form doubles the challenge. It's a skill that I admit I will never have nor develop. Thumbs up to you, man!

Like the more distant reverb particularly on the scratching, very inventive. Skunkwrx has a bit of a sheep reference in our last song too! Must be a trend. Cool lyrics.

Cool track - great delivery
I like how you bridge verses with broken lines - like separating chessier from smile in the 4th line. Excellent.

dude, you have to be one of the best lyricists i've ever heard. Reads like poetry. I think Dave_b once quoted to me that most lyrics "acceptable" in pop music registers on the 4th grade level (how sad, but definitely sounds like it). Not the case here. Does that mean we have to dumb down to get a contract? Well written my man.

Well
I think there is a market for everything. I don't believe artists like us need to dumb down what we do in order to be successful. Besides, I'm not trying to get a deal. I just do it for the love.

Sheep led to slaughter.
You are most probably the most gifted of poets. This is so powerful. "Here they are, all these nice, relaxed sheep". Wow, what an analogy! And that picture. Yes, you make an impact on the sensibilities. You are the one who made rap a true art form for me. Thank you.

This is what it is....
Out here and they don't even know it, Dead people walking I see it like
that truck I see across the street......
All this history with the education to understand it, yet we let them do
the same things over and over again, Man has learned nothing well
maybe he has, that there are a lot of suckers out there......

Well Done My Man..... Well Said.....

really should be main stream man . But we both know they would change you into something unlistenable like the rest so thank you for keeping you music open for the masses and your art and soul available for those that know to listen .
