Lyrics
I walk in a way that I'm stuck and frustrated (By I ain't gonna stop 'a movin')
And how long has it been since my stuff was updated? (Time for me to drop some new sh-t)

Help me to breathe, you see seldom I dream
I'm held deep in a cell, a cell pelted with grief
What they tell me to be has not helped in the least
If a record would sell I'd then tell my beliefs
I'd help you believe and not welcome the beast
I'd speak of the peace that I've felt in the breeze
I'd spill you relief, equally help you be free
I fell to my knees, helped me develop an ease
Peltin' and meltin' the siege, meltin' the dwellin' and need
Killin' the evil and seeds, beatin' the hell of disease
And these thoughts that are creepin', see my self as a demon
Who thinks people are frail and they can tell that I'm bleedin'
I'mma help you to read the brail drilled in the trees
So your body and soul will all melt into me
Indellable speach reepin' the wealth of the meanin'
Of me tellin' the people we can't help it but be

I walk in a way that I'm stuck and frustrated (By I ain't gonna stop 'a movin')
And how long has it been since my stuff was updated? (Time for me to drop some new sh-t)
Everything remembered is holdin' me, I can't stop it (And there's no escapin' it)
I'm findin' my mind is just what I'd hoped it'd be (Is divine light breakin' in?)

Society has it's own way that it works
Recieve patience at birth and you'll be placed with the first
But me I've watied and waited, I may stay on the search
Can't stop, I'm constantly movin' I wont stay in reverse
If I break than it hurts, this I've accepted as true
The next step that I'll use is spread the lesson to youth
It's what I do with the music, your best bet to get through's
Get up and move it or lose it and this'll get you there soon
Past the peril and doom, screw what America views
Sure it's fair how they fight, until they tear 'em in two!
And now they're in the news with failed marriages,
fueds, boozin' and heroine, shrooms until they scared of the truth
Now we're fearin' the mirror that we're starin' into
Just like the parents and prudes thinkin' that they're in a movie
Am I really a villain who interferin' witchu? (No!)
Grab a chair in the room, duck and prepare for the boom!

Everything remembered is holdin' me, I can't stop it (And there's no escapin' it)
I'm findin' my mind is just what I'd hoped it'd be (Is divine light breakin' in?)

Statements of grace to erase pages of hate
While the late days of the pain take all the hatred way
While the blame lays in the pavement we pave ways to be safe
As I say (Let me out of here)
Drained of the taste of the lame way that we wait
Makin' a blatant mistake, achin' and wastin' away
Wasted and wakin' in day facin' a nation of rage
I'll say (Let me out of here, let me out of here)

the Hook
I think that you have some good idea's here.
Verse 1, you keep a sincapated rhyme pattern. It captures a repatitious
flow of the same thing day in, and day out.
Verse 2, you break up your rhyme pattern which shows you (as a
charictor) breaking off and finding your own voice.
Verse 3, you break into the sycapated rhyme pattern (repatitious every
day life) with a break screaming "Let me out of here.") Cool change.

I think that your "chorus" or "hook" could use a little manipulation. Try
and find a 1 or 2 phrase statement that could really drive the tune
home. Something that grabs the listener by the gut. Your verses give
a good explanation and tell a good story, but the hook is what reels
the listener in.

I like your stuff, keep workin' on your craft.

the Hook
Excellent criticism! I appreciate the depth of your comment. It's also gratifying
to hear someone interpret my lyrics! I really like how you put that. This song
was done in the Summer and is unfortunately exported beyond much
modification, but I'll remember what you've told me for future songs.

Good vibe
I like what the rap says here - and you deliver it with assurance. Perhaps the arrangement could've blown up a little more - this kind of heavy duty would really smack hard with some bass thrown down and beats - but it's a measure of your assurance, once again, that you are comfortable with laying this down in a minimalist territory. Keep up the pace - be encouraged. Good vibe all around!

a wonder in your wandering
I'm going through your every song in your catalog... and this is saying
much coming from someone who actually disdains rap. I think what
makes the difference for me is I am actually reading the lyrics and seeing
the substance of your song rather than just listening to your ranting and
feeling your angst. It has a minimalist treatment but this makes your
vocals stand out and draws attention to the message rather than be
distracted by the music. Again, most of the listenable raps have a killer
refrain/chorus, which this song seemed to have intentionally eluded.. with
a little grand arrangement in the refrain/chorus, it certainly will double its
appeal. a definite download and fav.

listen to Eminem?
Verse 2 definately sounds just like Eminem on his song Renegade. . .
parents, mirror, failed marriages. heres his lrics.

EMINEM:
Since I'm in a position to talk to these kids and they listen
I ain't no politician but I'll kick it with 'em a minute
Cause see they call me a menace; and if the shoe fits I'll wear it
But if it don't, then y'all'll swallow the truth grin and bear it
Now who's these king of these rude ludicrous lucrative lyrics
Who could inherit the title, put the youth in hysterics
Usin his music to steer it, sharin his views and his merits
But there's a huge interference - they're sayin you shouldn't hear it
Maybe it's hatred I spew, maybe it's food for the spirit
Maybe it's beautiful music I made for you to just cherish

(here's where the parallels are undeniable)

But I'm debated disputed hated and viewed in America
as a motherfuckin drug addict - like you didn't experiment?
Now now, that's when you start to stare at who's in the mirror
and see yourself as a kid again, and you get embarrased
And I got nothin to do but make you look stupid as parents
You fuckin do-gooders - too bad you couldn't do good at marriage!
(Ha ha!) And do you have any clue what I had to do to get here I don't
think you do so stay tuned and keep your ears glued to the stereo
Cause here we go - he's {*Jigga joint Jigga-chk-Jigga*
And I'm the sinister, Mr. Kiss-My-Ass it's just the

so yea. . . dont really know what else to say about that. seems pretty
shady.

You're sharp
Your perceptiveness is amazing; the parallels are undeniable. I'm impressed
that you'd notice the similarities with such accuracy.

I know you don't like my music, but I'm flattered that you've listened to every one of my songs despite thinking it's poorly done.

dont take offense
bro i have nothing against your music...by posting you are opening your self to
both critisism and compliments....all good musicians take critisism and use it to
make their music better (as long as the critisism is due)....youve got talent
musically....in my opinion you seem to be a better producer than mc...thats not
to say that with practice you wont get better...either way dont ever let anyones
opinions change what you love to do

haha, thanks man. I didn't mean it like I took offense, I was just saying it's cool
that even having the opinions you have you still listened to it all.
