Theories of Inspiration

To say that these lyrics are inspired,
would call for the breath of god,
is this a new way to expire?
Or are we just searching for ‘fools gold’?

Follow my example, or get done rapid fire,
subliminal subtext is ample,
double cross like a quick liar,
sacred desire is dire, find you in a mire close to expire,

He cuts you up, you know you are torn, gone,
when you wake up in the morn, forlorn,
remembering the night before, in a battle on the floor
deadly, full of guile, wit and skill,
asserting his presence,
quickly you were killed.

State and society have got us scared,
living in a world that’s unfolding, but holding
so flare up, snap crackle and pop,
don’t ever fucking give up.
Crackalack a spine snaps and transmission has gone black.

You are too tired, wired and bullied into submission.
So listen kid, assume the position,
accept the mission possible,
or you’ll wind up in an inhospitable hospital.

Keep up I hope you can hear me,
loud and clear,
here’s a new theory,
spawned from fear.

No I don’t care,
MTV got you scared,
doing things ultimately unfair,

Out of consciousness I see you drift,
and its hard to comprehend,
seeing you bend,
and you fold.
We need to live and be bold.

So lift up, take the challenge sporadically,
reality is hiding, waiting,
we are copping a hiding theatrically,
concepts from rich to the poor,
come in your door through satellite,
you should know this by now:
Things are clearer at night.

Artist's Description

This is the second piece which was written to my good friend KYLiE whilst we were experimenting with writing rap lyrics.

This piece was created on the 5/8/08. at 7:34 pm during a Theology lecture. It does not reflect the current work that I am doing. I certainly have moved away from the long-winded rap lyrics towards more subtle, crisp and concise literature.

I merely place this work here for posterity, so that I recognise where I have come from, and where I may be going.

Thank you.
