check my Grand Arcanum arrangement
sacrificing everybody at the engagement
live ingredients provide immediate results
the beast needs us for feeding it
how did it become so codependent?
stepping away seems the logical way to end it
highly recommended movement
simple maneuver for vast improvement
one that should have been considered in the first place
before the scenario became worst case
passive resistance in this instance
is far beyond driven
suckers that are living in slow motion will be left behind
out of sight out of mind
like i'm blind to actual events
false pretense is my safety net
my one defense

now you know

somebody found me in the darkness on the edge of town
standing on the verge of getting down
maybe i was figuring its' system out
plan my escape route, no doubt
check out my execution in high resolution
audio-visual pollution
wallow on the mire until i retire
extinguished since my heart's on fire
left with the smoke and ash
the broken glass i sift through
with a passing glance
no hands, and no plans for the moment
stoic with a hope to remain unnoticed
Ellison edition of Invisible Man
astral project as fast as you can
for the sake of survival
defense mechanism
warning salvo for those who don't listen

now you know

lights out suckers, take your bad medicine
your reality needs editing
you cannot make a moment an epic
legends aren't self-appointed
they're selected
life is more than a Facebook status
one element of this mixed up madness
pawn like apparatus
small movements masked cleverly
lead to vast improvements
feeling removed from the masses
interaction with the leagues of classless
aggressively passive attackers
one could imagine most folks
acting as if it can't happen
well, the fronting's got me mad enough to touch something
then it's just me
and it's that sudden
snapshot freezeframe instantaneous
inglorious yet miscellaneous

now you know

:: mc : dj : producer : artist ::

A wordsmith with the heart of a poet and the head of a broadcast journalist. A DJ who is not afraid to venture outside of the norm. A producer with a different vocabulary of influences, and no fear whatsoever about embracing them. An artist searching for the link between the palette and the pixel. ... more
