about

This is the track that kicks off my pre-album campaign, "The Soulstice." It's something I threw together over the first two beats by Bonobo off his most recent LP, Black Sands.

lyrics

verse 1:
this is a letter to my older self
do you remember how our shoulders felt
when she said she couldn't live without us
or when our dad left the crib without us?
same shock to the system, but a different outlet
now you the champ like hogan with the golden belt
premium octane grade to make the motor melt
in other words, you the rap Franklin Roosevelt
portfolio sick as polio corroding cells
this is a letter to the man that i'll be one day
you're worth more than what your IRS refund pay
tax bracket got you acting like you ashmatic, coughin it up
god damn doesn't mass transit cost you enough?
did you have a child, what you name him or her?
for their mother's sake, i hope you ain't similar
just playing, you the perfect mold
to turn a soul into what it needs to be when you up in the dirt
this is a letter to soul khan
the shepherd of protons
you beat the game but never with codes on
summer's on its way and the album approaches
so please let me welcome all y'all to the soulstice

chorus (x2):
from month to month, and moon to sun
now the winds of change move through your lungs
it's a force of nature you've become
the soulstice is here

verse 2:
i'm from the home of one season, they take warmth for granted
it's a beautiful morning in the great north atlantic
this is your life now, so please claim your baggage,
sorta like peter north, i came for the cabbage
that's real talk to the a-l-k
i've had people lie to me when they say they'll stay
til i snapped at the seams, and i packed all my dreams,
and traveled to the capital that paved the way
i am the truth, unequivocal, no motive to lie
i am the answer without even proposing a "why"
i am the filament that charges the bulb in the sky
i've touched lives so i'll never be alone when i die
now this a little more simple than i usually spit
so i scribbled this soon as an opportunity hit
sometimes i feel like maybe i'm too stupid to quit
but i ain't following whereever they been moving this shit

chorus (x2):
from month to month, and moon to sun
now the winds of change move through your lungs
it's a force of nature you've become
the soulstice is here
