He's never gonna make it all the Poor people he's forsaken karma Is always gonna chase him for his lies It's just a game of waiting from the Church steeple down to Satan karma There's really no escaping till he dies
Standing on the deck, I watch my shadow stretch The sun pours my shadow upon the deck The water's licking 'round my ankles now There ain't no sunshine way, way down I see the sharks are in the water like slicks of ink Hell, there's one there bigger than a submarine As he circles, I look in his eye I see Jonah in his belly by the campfire light
So we let the silence speak for us we stood there in the wind So I could read her like the blind read brail the goosebumps on her skin Like a fever breaking all around her white dress in the rain It was the first day of forever and I never was the same
I never knew this side of me I never felt like this before You make my heart go bang And I know that we’ve only begun
Lyrics from one of "our" songs. (honestly, Blue October is just our band?) but this one is pretty special cause it's the first song my girlfriend sent me after we got together and said "it always makes me think of you"
Don't remember where I was I realized life was a game The more seriously I took things The harder the rules became I had no idea what it'd cost My life passed before my eyes I found out how little I accomplished All my plans tonight So as you read this know my friends I'd love to stay with you all Please smile when you think of me My body's gone that's all A tous le monde A tous les amis Je vous aime Je dois partir These are the last words I'll ever speak And they'll set me free
That's another story, I'm no story-teller I piss greatness, like goldish yellow All my goons so overzealous I'm from Hollygrove, the holy Mecca Calendar say I got money for days I squirm and I shake, but I'm stuck in my ways My girlfriend will beat a bitch up if she waved They bet' not fuck with her surfboard, surfboard My eyes are so bright, I take cover for shade Don't have my money? Take mothers instead You got the hiccups, you swallowed the truth Then I make you burp, boy, treat beef like sirloin I'm talkin' 'bout runnin' in houses with army guns So think about your son and daughter rooms Got two hoes with me, messed up, they got smaller guns....
Yes I know I'm a wolf, and I've been known to bite But the rest of my pack, I have left them behind And my teeth may be sharp, and I've been raised to kill But the thought of fresh meat, it is making me ill So I'm telling you that you'll ...be ...safe ..with..me. Young Heretics - Dear Rabbit
He's made of bones, he's made of blood He's made of flesh, he's made of love He's made of YOU, he's made of ME! UNITY!
To that terrace over Rio With a bougainvillea vines Where the heat finally nailed me So we stayed the extra night And then the guard up in the watchtower Charged with keeping out the fighting Joked the difference between sexes All boils down to their handwriting And when we checked out the next morning We were on a first name basis But then he had the kind of features Where you can’t recall his face But it wouldn’t have been that much later he saw God’s ‘Cause he died staring up the nostrils Of a UPP shotgun
Maze, psychopathic daze, I create this waste Back away from tangents, on the verge of drastic ways Can't escape this place, I deny your face Sweat gets in my eyes, I think I'm slowly dying Put me in a homemade cellar Put me in a hole for shelter Someone by me please, all I see is hate I can hardly breathe, and I can hardly take it
For you, I could pretend like I was happy when I was sad For you, I could pretend like I was strong when I was hurt I wish love was perfect as love itself I wish all my weaknesses could be hidden I grew a flower that can’t be bloomed in a dream that can’t come true
It's us, mind power Live life, mind power It's us, mind power Live life, mind power
Yo, fuck anybody I might alarm Life is a tour, I sit and ride along Taking some notes and then I write the song I'm staring down the road my life has gone Is this where I belong? Is it wrong to not believe in right and wrong? My mental state is fucking me up And I cried upon while asking you for some answers But we don't have that type of bond Now my desires gone with the way that I've been living lately If I died right now, you'd turn the fire on Sick of this bullshit, niggas call me a sellout 'Cause I hopped on Christianity so strongly then I fell out Now I'm avoiding questions like a scared dog with his tail down Feeling so damn humiliated 'cause they looking at me like I'm hellbound What story should I tell now? I'll just expose the truth I'm so close to the fucking edge, I should be close to you But who the fuck are You? You never showed the proof And I'm only fucking human yo, what am I supposed to do? There's way too many different religions with vivid descriptions Begging all fucking men and women to listen I can't even beat my dick without getting convicted These ain't wicked decisions, I got different intentions I been itching to get it, I've been given assistance But the whole fucking system is twisted Now I'm dealing with this backlash because Marcus isn't a Christian And I've been told that my sinful life is an addiction But I can't buy it, it's just too hard to stand beside it I need an answer and humans can't provide it I look at the Earth and Sun and I can tell a genius man designed it It's truly mind blowing, I can't deny it Is heaven real? Is it fake? Is it really how I fantasize it? Where's the Holy Ghost at? How long it take Man to find it? My mind's a nonstop tape playing and I can't rewind it You gave me a bible and expect me not to analyze it I'm frustrated and you provoked it I'm not reading that motherfucking book because a human wrote it I have a fucking brain, you should know it You gave it to me to think to avoid every useless moment It was a mission that I had to abort 'Cause humans be lying with such an inaccurate source It's gon' be hard to put me back on the course Next Jehovah's witness to come on my porch, I swear I'm slammin' the door A lot of folks believe it though, but I'm not surprised Humans are fucking dumb, still thinkin' that Pac's alive I ain't trying to take your legacy and torch it down I'm just saying, I ain't heard shit from the horse's mouth Just sheep always telling stories of older guys Who were notarized by you when you finally vocalized Now I'm supposed to bow my head and close my eyes And somehow let the Holy Ghost arise, sounds like a fucking poltergeist Show yourself and the boom is done Every rumor's gone, I no longer doubt this shit, you're the one I'll admit that my sinful ways was stupid fun And all my old habits can hop onto of a roof to plunge I'll donate to a charity that could use the funds Fuck the club, instead of bitches I'd hang with a group of nuns And everyone that I ran into would know what I came to do I wouldn't take a step unless it was in the name of You I hate the fact that I have to believe You haven't been chatting with me like you did Adam and Eve And I ain't seen no talking snake or rabbit from trees With an apple to eat, that shit never happens to me I don't know if you do or don't exist, shit is driving me crazy Send your condolences, this is me reaching to you so don't forget If hell is truly your pit of fire and I get thrown in it I'mma probably regret the fact that I ever wrote this shit My gut feeling says it's all fake, I hate to say it but fuck it, shit I done lost faith This isn't a small phase, my perspective's all changed My thoughts just keep picking shit apart all day And in my mind I make perfect sense If you aren't real then all my prayers aren't worth a cent That would mean that I could just make up what my purpose is And I could just sit in the church and say fuck in the services Man what if Jesus was a facade? Then that would mean the government's God I feel like they've been brainwashing us with a lot So much that we don't even notice that we're stuck in the box Man everything is what if, why is it always what if Planet Earth what if, the universe what if My sacrifice what if, my afterlife what if Every fucking thing that deals with you is fucking suspect I'm fucking done, I'm fucking done This is my fucking life and I'm living it, I'm having fun If you really care for me, prove that I need to live carefully But I'll be damned if I put my own pleasure aside for an afterlife that isn't even guaranteed We are you, and you're us, stop playing games My life's all I got, and heaven is all in my brain And when I feel I am in hell, my ideas are what get me through pain Do as you please, and I'll just do me, I'm a human, I'll stay in my lane Ill mind
It's us, mind power Live life, mind power It's us, mind power Live life, mind power
