Just a song I wrote one day and decided to do something with.


Early morning down Grand Avenue
Too much smog in the air, the sky's not blue
Away from the world, yet we own our world
Dominant race is not at the pace

5:30, making coffee, morning air feeling frosty
Yesterdays mathematics lecture lost me, yeah it lost me
But then it caught me when I realized what it would have cost me
If I can't sit at a desk and focus

Focus, hocus-pocus, magic locusts
but then the world seen, seems really hopeless
I put my earbuds in my ears as I fearlessly
listen to some records from Flying Lotus

[repeat hook]

As I'm walkin' , my life often
feels like a tug of struggles while I'm jumpin over rain puddles
When there is nothing to gain, nothing to gain
I am a lame-duck away from comfort by the lake

And woddling into straight-streets, of tire streaks
He lost his family to some cop cars from gnarly headquarters
from his homeland marshes, across home porches
with a reminder of guild brotherhoods and stick figure torches
