Far from joy
Told to cool my jets cause it could be worse
Than being this puppet used in America’s employment like a toy
While others try to avoid
Slip into a state of carelessness
Is no one else paranoid?
No amount of words I spit can truly have any weight
An overgrown ego let’s in no reason as it continues to inflate
Troublemakers make sure to talk, Money gets to walk
No one’s really anonymous when information shares the same fate: Leaked.
The problem isn’t simple, no matter the solution presented:
Work till you’re too dead to enjoy life, full of resent
Cut the throats of others young so that all you experience is decadence
Until someone decides to take it from you, living with a fear intense.
I can put pen to paper but it ain’t gonna change the fate you meet
Maybe help you figure out a new way to bow to your maker and take a seat
But it isn’t enough to change your life, so I turn the other cheek
If the world is gonna blow up, I wanna make sure the self-destruct gets its havoc to wreak.
My sentiments plateau, we all know where they’re gonna go :
In one ear out the other then you hit the doo’(door)
I can speak volumes and tomes for the mazes that you roam
But to me it’s just another opportunity blown.
See the truth is, that the world doesn’t learn like this
It has to be sick, violent, twisted no repentance
Religion and faith are supposed to make the ultimate saves
Yeah man, tell me that when you’re trying to take in the view from your grave.
Pretend you don’t understand my frustration
Like it’s just another figment of my overblown imagination
Then remember you’re part of the problem and breeding indignation
Keep toilin’ the fields to harvest for someone else’s plantation.
The fall-off is when you learn that you live only to end
That money gets you by, but never pays dividends.
Makes you give everything til your body breaks and your mind bends
Gives you enough cause to show up, but rarely gives you one true to defend
Maybe I’m in the wrong, It’s a piece of the puzzle I never understood
Hard to understand it when it can’t be associated with any element of good.
Don’t build your life or your family around it, because when it’s there it’s Zion
And when it ain’t, all the vultures take flight, and the Garden of Eden gets to dyin’.
