(Rap Genius Lyrics Found Here; Normal Lyrics Below)

[Verse 1]
Day One, I invent paper,
Then look around I found myself on a college ruled acre
Looking east, I go there and prepare
To get sustenance from vegetables shout out to nature.
Day Two, I invent pencils,
Then trace my brain, outlined on the page with a stencil.
Puffing lentil between dentals before Popeye;
Laser focused on nowhere with my blind hawk eyes.
Day Three, I invent Rhythm. I’m that guy.
The whole ecosystem bobbing head with him.
Visions of the future seems my creator hid them.
“Seconds. Where y’all going?” I’m starting to miss them,
Day Four, I invent poetry.
Before Yiruma, I found the flow in me.
Other animal ridicule; jokingly,
Then I destroy the close minded, openly

[Hook]
One Day I’m made from the clay of Cassius,
Then reborn from the burnt bridges ashes.
This is the revelation of my genesis.
This is the revelation of my genesis.

One Day I’m made from the clay of Cassius,
Then reborn from the burnt bridges ashes.
This is the revelation of my genesis.
This is the revelation of my genesis.

Day Five, I invent melody.
To give my words time to play with some company.
Add a little counterpoint and a couple timpani.
Then accidentally smoke a whole forest. Hickory.
Day Six, I invent Hip hop.
From there, I figured that I would never stop.
Now I don’t know who it was who invented pop or country.
It’s not me so hold the phone.
Day Seven, I invent the microphone.
Hmmm. I wonder.
That was me thinking I should invent the first song
And that song is what’s been playing all along.
Day Eight, I invent humans.
To give a way this soul food that they’re consuming
After putting my elaborate plan to movement,
I fade away to nirvana with my favorite Buddhist.

[Hook]
One Day I’m made from the clay of Cassius,
Then reborn from the burnt bridges ashes.
This is the revelation of my genesis.
This is the revelation of my genesis.

One Day I’m made from the clay of Cassius,
Then reborn from the burnt bridges ashes.
This is the revelation of my genesis.
This is the revelation of my genesis.

[Verse 3]
Invented paper to savor this emotion.
Wrote this genesis of rhetoric, unlike electric can’t resist.
This sets the precedence for the rest of this dissonance.
I’ll speak this stream of consciousness even without an audience.
Heart of a lion cloaked in a brown human pelt.
Mind your business. Enjoy your ride on conveyor belts.
What do you when everyone wants to escape?
While I’m on a mission to go find myself and relate.
Sleep is for the dead, I’ll live forever so I’m restless.
Me, myself and I the only one on this guest list.
Party of one. Celebrating our essence.
Not a graven image that we paint for the masses.
Can’t accept your bills your social currency is counterfeit.
Died ten times. I’m out of lives now that I think of it.
The conclusion, I’ve included is a great revelation
Every ending’s followed by the light of a genesis.

For your Patience…

Here’s a preview of the track art for the song “A More”. A song about a man’s close amor, wanting “a more”.

Synopsis of Escapism

Brief Summery

“Escapism” is a  5 track mini-album created as an escape from the norms of popular hip hop. It is thought provoking and challenges the listener with creative storytelling, clever word play, and unique diction. All the lyrics, instrumentals, engineering and art work will be done by myself. I chose to do a short 5 track album because I intend to use it as a demo tape as well as a performance set when I seek out gigs. Each track will also have it’s own unique album art which I may combine into a single poster as the release date approaches. As of now the release date for the entire project is to be announced, but the first single “Genesis” will be releasing this Thursday, March 24th, 2016.

Track List

  1. Genesis
  2. Artisan
  3. A More
  4. Euphoria
  5. Escapism/I’d Rather

Stay tuned tomorrow for a synopsis of the first single “Genesis”

 

Thanks for Reading

As thanks for reading, below I have a sneak preview of the album art for “Genesis”. Hope you enjoyed this synopsis and support the release.

My 2nd book is in the works!

image

Here’s the outline to my 2nd book I’m writing. It will be about exploring philosophical ideas. I’m not trying to establish a system or anything but I wanted to explore old and current ideals and their implications on today’s society. I recently found a notebook that contained mini essays on philosophy and this inspired me to write this book. If you want a sample of what will be in it check out the post before this titled “creative Pantheism – the religion of creativity” 

Creative Pantheism – the religion of creativity

Since I have limited access to internet due to laptop running slow I haven’t been able to upload youtube content, music etc like I want so I decided my next project is going to be a book exploring my personal philosophy and philosophical topics in general. So in preparation for this project, I have wrote this article. Mind you I typed this from phone off the top of my head as a kind of “freewrite” so forgive me for any mistakes.
People sometimes ask what my religion is and I’ve never known what to say. This is my attempt to put a label on it. I call it…
Creative Pantheism. What is it? Well Pantheism is the belief that all things are God. I believe that everything and everyone is as to God as cells are to us. The sum of all the parts of this universe equal to God and each person or thing is designed to play a specific microscopic role even if we aren’t aware of its macroscopic implications.  Creative Pantheism adds one more principle to Pantheism, that is, the idea that an act of creation and creativity is  the universe’s purpose. I’ve always said “The universe is a void screaming to be filled.” But what about destruction? Well, destruction is a type of creation in  the way that it frees up raw material to be  rearranged like lego pieces (this is why I believe legos are so popular, they reflect a fundamental principle of the universe)
Boom! There it is, creative Pantheism.
Thanks for reading! If you enjoyed like, follow and share so you can be alerted when the next philosophical tid bit is released.
