it's not a selfish act if you can get to where I'm at
inside my head and really feel these lessons on rebuilding
a healing factor when I'm captured in my refractory period
I have to be serious when I rap about it
I've got some friends that are so blind it makes me envious
I try too hard, it must be nice to be oblivious
if ignorance is just a blissful state of harmony
I'll honestly consider signing up for the lobotomy

there's gotta be a better way to fall in line

I'm clawing at the walls to get a grip so I can climb

if I ever lost my mind I don't know if I'd want to find it

trying to describe this light so bright inside I'm blinded

dancing on the thread in between art and entertainment

wasted are my efforts in attempts to sound so sacred

swaying in the breeze I've just been doing what comes naturally

it's actually passion that keeps me active in this pageantry

it goes beyond the need to express or the need to be accepted
or the need to use music to try to get over regrets, let it go
it's more than an image, more than a personal confession
after the sun sets, what's left is this connection
and when it becomes infectious is when it all makes sense again
never cared for attention, only to share a message
and the lessons on the way, relating kept me invested
our language is an effective ammunition if you arm your weapons

slowly I'm dissected and left for interpretation

the cover might be worn but don’t forget to turn the pages

sifting through the wreckage of my essence in this petri dish

convincing myself it isn’t all meaningless

though I'm flawed in some formulas there's a method to my madness

bleeding out a little color on this canvas

use these intimate minutes I spit to clarify polarity

my songs will be my epitaph, quote me then bury me
