Description
This song was actually made before I deployed (wow that makes it over a year old). It is essentially a track that I made in July of '08 that I always planned on posting here, but just never got around to it. There is not a lot going on music wise and the lyrics are pretty basic. The title says the subject.

Hope you all enjoy.

Lyrics
verse 1
I could crawl before I learned to walk
Speak syllables and learned to talk
Once my cycle is completed and its time for me to leave this plane will it be in vain upon my death bed or lined in chalk
Its not certain what the future may hold
Let the truth be told
I feel as though that I am nearing my prime
This game of life is only a scrimmage
I will not be diminished
Is as if I'm getting better with time
Trick-knowledge tries to sever the mind, but I know the game plan
I can get stuck complaining
But what is the thought without its action counterpart
My boundaries outer mark continues to expand
Beyond space and time
But by no means does that mean I take my time
Even if I see the goal ahead and make it mine
I will not be satisfied and refuse to look back until I peak the climb

Non-complacent
Contemplated
By my philosophy Ill never make it
Once one is done a new created
(super dope cuts)

verse 2
Looking back on my life and everything I've accomplished
Between the set backs and beyond the nonsense
The lessons that I learned through the mistakes in life
And times that I would try my best to make it right
Even though it may fall apart
It is all an art
That we learn to master, painting choices upon my canvas
And write my story to live happily ever after
Prince or pastor, choose your doctrine
And face the consequence when death comes knocking
Is it the past you can't see you would choose to put stock in
Or is it the future that does not end
In possibilities, trust your abilities and know that in life you deserve to feel at ease
But not contempt so we look ahead and leave regret to the past where it took our dead

Non-complacent
Contemplated
By my philosophy Ill never make it
Once one is done a new created
(super dope cuts)

Once again your lyrics tell a great story. Basic lyrics and music? This is very well crafted, gets you thinking. My nephew returned home from Tikrit in November. From your listed location you may be home too. if not I hope yours is soon, and be safe!!!

this is sick!
its pleasantly simplistic, but maintains the head-strong nature. nice cuts and beats as well! one recommendation of mine is that the echo effect on a few lines is a bit loud for my taste. this track is very dope nonetheless.

That echo
As much as I love to use the echo I have a hard time making the vocals equal on each track. When I do the a cappella Ill take it out.

Thanks man.

Been a while
since I stopped by your page, Mitchell. But you've always got something going on...
Everything sounds easy here (kinda funny in a song about complacency!): the music is mellow and trancey, your delivery is spot on, no stress; but your voice is as sharp and uncompromising as usual: a heady mix of preaching, accusation and self-examination.
Much enjoyed.

Carry on,

SJ

tight
tight beats and loops, you make it all sound easy (complacent!) but I know it is NOT. Sparse and clean, great mix. The same thing happens to me, songs take forever to get fully flushed out and I find it's a year before it gets posted. Hey, sometimes the wine has to age. It only gets better...

I have about 3 jams that I keep revisiting, but not feeling as though it should be posted. Perhaps I'm being too critical or just afraid. Who knows.

Very Good
Simplistic is sometimes all thats required. The music needs to be simple because there is alot going on in the lyrics, they are well beyond basic. The lyrics are very thought provoking, so everything in this song is on the right level for everything else, its a very balanced track. Interesting that you are talking about death before you were deployed.

Death
I didn't notice that. I guess I mentioned it more than I realized in this song. Interesting. My mind was initially on preservation and goal accomplishment. I guess my subconscious had a little something extra in mind. Thanks for the observation.

i remember this...
from a while back, was gonna go on the MJ album right? I like this one a lot, i like the pace and overall vibe of the beat. Your delivery stays right on point throughout as usual. I can always appreciate reflective lyrics like such... especially when they connect us all on a similar level. I often close myself off through my deepened perspective, which is really easy to do in my position, but it really contradicts a lot of concepts i try to express in my music and that is something that i am working on. Anyways, it was nice to hear again, thanks for posting. Hope all is well, Peace.

The Album
Yeah. I considered putting it on the album we were working on, but since it was supposed to be all of us I felt I should just post it here. As soon as Frenchy is back in the picture I would still like to pursue it.

I don't feel that your style contradicts your feelings at all. It is you and is done masterfully well. I respect and admire your talent and don't think you should ever second guess that. But then again that would be complacency.

Wow! You have completely changed my expectation of Hip Hop-Rap. Rap always lays down a challenge, but this layers over that challenge a very positive and motivational message. I must listen to more of your music when I have some time, but you are a very talented writer.

This is fantastic!
Really fantastic. Production is really tight on this. You say not a lot going on music wise but the sum total with the lyrics, melody and backing track say otherwise. Very, very appealing song!

The music
I guess the reason the music is not much of a deal to me is because it took such a short amount of time to make. It seemed like when I tried to add more to it it just didn't go with the music so I kept it the way it is. Glad you enjoyed it.

Nice!
I really liked this. Cool lyrics, good delivery, nice rhythm. It has a minimalistic arrangement and as you put it "not a lot going on music wise", but I think that's exactly right for this piece and is just what makes it work. Simple and to the point = powerful. It actually sounded very professional to me.

Having said that, let me know if you're interested in another version with some distorted electric guitar (played by me) added, because as I listened to it I found this song very inspiring and easy to play along to.
