lyrics

verse 1

hate it when life starts pushing me on the edge of what be about
eat, sleep be without
while other take the scenic route
on the tip of breaking through to higher plan
in fact i lace the game
with this unnamed refrain
my claim is where is should be
collective misfit
erben nitwit
stuck between the vibe of rhyme hustling
and loop dust bustling
toss and tussle ends
like i got Benjamin's to spend
but broke and bummy
it's either this or clean my laundry
may sound onry
but truth when life is on me
with nickels dwindling
got to build the fire with kindling
before the pockets empty in
stuck between a rock and hard place to squeeze
got love for lp’s
from the first day i stretched the sleeve
best perceived as sample geek
slice a rhythm into parts
then reconstruct a random beat
never sleep
i know a good loop from the photo finish
both caught my eye before knowing the sound provide
hypnotized
stuck between this or that
just bits of fact
trying to choose but stuck between the overlap


verse 2

feeling like i’m stuck trying to pick between the two
caught with in a loop
that seemed to swoop upon this fading goof
remaining true to form
meaning bargain born
with the prospect of something this fresh
couldn’t dare leave for the next guess
move toward the counter like a thief in a mask skully
brash but gully
though my appearance is natural funny
ask to drop the price from two bucks to a dollar even
as she stared in disbelief like what is he conceiving
panicked and breaking into frantic breathing
her lips move at a pace of slow when she uttered that i could leave
while her finger pointed back to the sign that scribbled free
