about

This song is dedicated to Yakub a friend of mine who passed away.

lyrics

Tape worm

Verse 1
A really unique individual
He was truly one of a kind
My first introduction struck by the motion of rhyme
Crowded spot with no recollection of what moment in time
Speaking a million words a minute and I'm just froze by the lines
Never stopped to talk each thought poetic well placed diction
Inebriated, could dispose of any villain creating friction
He would stumble about and every mumble he would sprout was a keeper
Quick and precise
Swift like a knife
He would cut
Never letting up
A pummel of words emerge as if to keep breath
And that's the secret
With out rhyme he was depleted
Mind fixed on things that his body never needed
Leap forward newer date in time
He create a rhyme
trying to keep his self clean and focus mind on the climb
Going to start working out and grow his hair like a lion
Is what he use to say though it never went that way
And I was blind to see how this pattern of life would lead him astray

Hook
If I don't speak for his past then his future is ghost
He was, more then a friend he was a reason to hope
Wish I could of been there for you all alone with your notes
Deep in that dark forrest with a vision to go

Verse 2
It's hard to know where life will take you
Sometimes it's up but mainly down
With good friends around helps me sustain feet to ground
Been a minute since you been around and my mind drawing conclusions
Confused when stories emerge about your struggles
In and out of trouble
If you need me I'm there on the double
Remember the night you stayed at our house i gave you my bed
Told you sleep it off
Then you woke me up with quite a fright
Peeing in the sink cause I guess the commode wasn't right
What a mess
But doesn't matter cause friends suppose there threw the good and bad
Happy or sad better believe it
Could of been better at communicating ways to keep up but I was slipping
Now my friend is missing
Get a call with shook voice on the end of the line
Wishing to reverse words and his life i could rewind
Yakub one of the best may you rest in peace
For ever in my thoughts till my mind & body deceased

Hook
If I don't speak for his past then his future is ghost
He was, more then a friend he was a reason to hope
Wish I could of been there for you all alone with your notes
Deep in that dark forrest with a vision to go
