Alone in the Wilderness prod. by Preference



 Genre: Hip Hop-Rap

Get Flash to see this player.

An instrumental that Preference made for me, which I struggled to write to for quite awhile. I went on a camping trip at the beginning of July and came back, this song wrote itself. Some of the mixing is weird but enjoy. Thanks to Preference for the love and skill he used to make this track.

The sample at the beginning is from Alone in the Wilderness, which is the story of Dick Proenneke living in the Alaska ...

It's so great to be outside, alive
months ago you'd invite, I'd smile, thanks I'm fine
using the time, roaming my mind as hours pass on the hourglass
I think back passed the tense, my past is dead to me

it's over dude, and overdue
let it go, let it go, let it go
hear the waves crash
as the sun sets slowly
let it glow, let it glow, let it glow
feel the rivers current
it keeps pulling insistently
come with me, it whispers secretly
listening to the trees converse with the summer breeze
let it flow, as I float, canopy glow
Inside my head, I sing a song
anonymous, no origins
the chorus is, something spooky
like a bunch of poor kids
running around town proud as shit
I listen in-tently, sitting in tents
dense to the natural beauty of the world I pretend to be in
cause I don't fit in this construct, stuck, i've tried all pieces
but chill, I'm at peace with it

my back against a tree, I gaze across the lake
as birds cloud the air and dot the sky,
contemplate the ripples racing towards the end
reverberations, replicating on the waters edge
skipping rocks across the river bed
I think on death, with No Fear like a 90's kid
a single tear shed, Native American
when thoughts drift like paddle boats
you never know, how deep the water goes
until you jump in, jump ship like Marty Mcfly
they got their eyes on my life preserver
but it's just a puffy down vest
so I'd be drowning quick, but I can swim
i keep expecting lily pads to slowly grab
and wrap around ankles and wrists
dragging me down to abyss
I scream in horror
as I watch the bubbles boil up, trying to catch one like Sonic
thoughts run quick to rhetorics
Are your drowning kid?
I touch the ground and kick
catapulted to the surface
I break the tension, taking deep breaths in like tuba choirs
which I required, drag myself to land, and lay quiet
watch the moon distort the light provided by the heavens
I see the craters on the moons surface feeling reverent
remembering The Night's Watch by Rembrandt
and how it's all irrelevant.

Count my blessings, twice
and dive back in

Yeah that's right after drowning, deep breath
time to swim

Life is what you make it
Life is what you take in
I've been taken, for a fool
and fools rush in
