learn
now I know my ABC's
next time won't you sing with-

STOP

cataclysmic
but all the beats i'm saying is coming out arrhythmic

prismic

light shines a rainbow
but how far could light reach down this rabbit hole

woah

feet ain't so lucky
want to mark this file but i'm not David Duchovny

Rush me

you know you want to sing it
but Tom Sawyer's pride drowned; couldn't bring it

and so we watch
we're taught play dead
there's too much words inside my bed
but when I swallow, you'll come instead
a rush of blood to the head

play it cold

how many more tears have to dry and mold?

do you need me to spread my mouth open?

...which one

SPOKEN

cataracts

there's good vibes but my hands attack

most used; worse equation:
1+1= destructive, invasion

station

but where's the magical adventure?

will I be a champion
or be stuck in a call center

center
center

I need a mentor
but the one in the mirror is too busy looking elsewhere

so now I know my ABC's
learn
so next time come, oh won't you please
learn
cause if you hollar you'll just shed
learn
all of that nonsense in your head...

    Quite an eclectic grouping of ideas from some one's songs... Afraid I'd need a decoder here, but interesting.

    Who is this? Is this Jessica? Hard to leave a comment after one of Mr. Roboto's. His comments are like short poems on their own lol. He's right - there seems a lot more here than initially meets the eye. Super fresh lines, Jessica. This is more of an intelligent, cryptic slam, than some of our usual suspects, spewing out lines like: "MY GUN IS BIGGER THAN YOURS! SLAM! WHAM! BAM! MY LINES WILL CUT YOU DOWN LIKE LYRICAL HAND GRENADES! WHAM! BAM! SLAM!"

    woaH...DIggittTY DuGG this piece of Loaded explosions sooo hot now I got Halitosis! u know This! Like Friday, this Shits legit, cuzzin' you wrote it the Right Way. ====I love the Rush Tom Sawyer reference, it gets high on you, the space he displays he gets by on you! Plus, I don't watch TV at all, but the David D. reference is from Californication right. X files too. A TON TO DECODE = fun fun mode! 7 rate
