lyrics

Barriers

Sample from Charlie Chaplin’s ‘The Great Dictator’.

[Verse 1]

Wanna succeed so bad as an original cat
And combat every lack in every turn up track
And blacken this game like a seared scorch stain
Then retain my reign as every mainstream’s bane
And claim a little fame to this gay emcee name
As I’ve been called, appalled, by todays embrace
But am I supposed to be proud and stand up erect?
And not correct the specs of these train wrecks that we elect?
Well that’s dangerous talk for a kid who raps stupidly
Ignores how good Luda be and barely hit puberty
Well goodness me, didn’t see that being 16 breeched free speech
So fuck it he’s a kid, ignore his lips and rid his preach
Yo what’s behind these teeth ain’t just curses
Blurted into words then heard ‘cause this world ain’t perfect
And are you sure kid, ‘cause fame’s a real burden
And frankly this earth is really knowledge allergic

[Hook]

Just wanna be something in the eyes of these nice
Emcee guys and kind mic barrers
I want the kids to bump my rhymes instead of scarier
Gang peers but feelin my years career

[Verse 2]

So much holding me back but I’ll ignore the evidence
Forget its presence and hide in the cleverness
Of every other header-worthy spitter in my litter early
Rap bloomers that’ll later lead like Twitter-clergy
Yeah, you heard me our time might not be now
But funny thing about time, it matures with every crowd
And learns with every frown and yearns for every town
Just wants to be the next sound, crown the new noun
A renown cycle older folks despise highly
In fifty years screamin “God take us back to Miley!”
In twenty seven cheers could be as real as Boots Riley
Wisely spittin heat, the new cheap kicks are Nikes
And yo, cry me a river ‘cause you’re young
I know it’s the time for fun, in their eyes getting drunk
But the bars on my tongue ain’t the same ones that bump
These grown ass men rich off pretending they Donald Trump

[Hook 2]

Just wanna be something in the eyes of these nice
Emcee guys and kind mic barrers
I want the kids to bump my rhymes instead of scarier
Gang peers but feelin my years career Barriers
I’m feelin my Barriers
