Haters, Explained

I’d like to take a moment to discuss the concept of “haters”. Because I believe I have figured something out that makes a lot more sense to me now than it did years ago when I just got started into writing stuff. Human beings are animals. I think we can all come to terms with … More Haters, Explained

I Don’t Rap

Cars and clothes are cool, I guess They’re great when you want girls and sex It must be nice to be so dumb When every line you write is numb   Numb from all the things we feel And all the shit that makes life real Bigger houses, bigger banks You paid her tab? Hey … More I Don’t Rap

Windsor Knots

Masks are nice, they’re pretty, right? Just look at what I wear tonight This suit is fitted – these winds? Or not You’d love all of these things I’ve got   All the lights shine onto you When we fall in this photo booth Yeah, its fun, alright I guess How everything lights up that … More Windsor Knots

Love

A man is lost in a dilemma His love, his heart, his dearest Stella She dances, sings, does everything That causes men to offer ring   But there’s one knot tied in this chain He never thought he’d love again He was sent off, to war, you see And it was thought, that died, had … More Love

My Idols

My closest friends, they’re here, I know Em, and Fitz, and Frost, and Poe They do not sit and dine with me They reside in my mind, you see   We write, we wonder, work and play We converse every single day Whispers in the wind and skies The glint that’s deep inside my eyes … More My Idols

Angels & Demons

Everywhere I go I always have to make a choice Right or left, up or down, good or bad, I hear a voice Its hard to navigate through all the thoughts and all the faded noise I try to make the right decisions, try to live right and rejoice   But you know the devils … More Angels & Demons

Bad at Love

I sit and read all of these top artists’ lines Inspired by their thoughts as I think and try to create mine I study each and every line, every rhythm, every beat Reading lyrics from 2Pac, Halsey, Big and Em n Pete It’s a craft that I am studying, a craft that I’m just starting … More Bad at Love

Conscience

Things we think we know are true The life we live, both me and you So often isn’t candid truth I say to this confession booth What rules are right? What rules are wrong? What lyrics tell A moral song? These questions, see, exist to ask Just what, in life, is our great task? To … More Conscience

The Tour

Psst, hey you! Come here, my friend To you, my hand, I shall extend Don’t be shy, come quietly This is for you, just follow me   A tour this is, with me, your guide So let us gently step inside Now take a seat, get strapped right in Prepare the mind to twirl and … More The Tour

No I Say

You want an album? No I say Cause I don’t rap, not any day I just write, my words they say Enough for you and me today   I get it, all these things I write They make sense when you read at night This world is filled with hate and fright And reading lends … More No I Say

Without You

So long they’ve waited, wandering Watching, waiting, listening For the next one, pondering Ever are they wondering   The wait is over, never more Alas, the knock is at the door Get up and answer, I implore You’ve found your long, and lost Lenore   The time has come, turn back the clock The stories … More Without You

Tough Love

When you’re bored, don’t bitch at me Just shut your trap and write, you dweeb Don’t pout and whine and stare and blink Just grab that pen and think and think   Come up with something folks will read And sell it so your dog can feed Don’t waste your time excusing the Stops to … More Tough Love

What We Are

At night, I know, my mind has proved For that’s when all the mask’s removed We work and play, and yet we think Of all the things we want, a link   A link to all we want to be So instead we make a fantasy We dream and wish and wish and dream And … More What We Are

Don’t Wait

Oftentimes, I’ll look to see The person looking back at me Watching through a hazy lens At who that strange reflection is   Staring forward, several blinks Is he the person that he thinks? Does he do the things he speaks? Is practice coming from the preach?   My eyes still glare, this man ahead … More Don’t Wait

The Tiki Torches: 1

“‘Ay Carl!” “Wut?” “Ya think this in’ll work?” Strolling along the calamitous alleyways of the local Wal-Smart, Carl and Joe have a bit of difficulty deciding what torches to carry to their Klan march. Plop “There!” Joe shouts, proudly placing his newly acquired bug-deterrent torch in the basket, ready to check out. “Now just you … More The Tiki Torches: 1
