Never Quiet by Teddy Rycroft published on 2012-11-16T02:26:56Z Original rap and beat composed and produced for a scholarship competition Why do I want to go to college? The same reason a learner seeks knowledge, or a hustler seeks profit, or the ignorant stay thoughtless? Bliss in their pocket I want to stand on the shoulders of giants and radiate hateless acknowledgement to my peers, enlightenment beyond my years, let me lift my race up, over our hates and our fears It’s clear to me that each human spirit on this sphere is sparkling and glowing, connected heart to heart, tear to tear So tell the listless I’m back on it, the gifted their pack’s stronger my business is not to wrong you with arrogant inflations of ego, no that’s the generalization some eat up like cookie dough It’s wack, yo! Check the facts so another slack bro will point his finger not at all the human race has fought to know, go and discover for yourself the benefit learning something has on oneself I don’t need a chorus if each word is important, and I don’t necessarily need a degree to move forward but the tools to paint my name in the stars have been offered to ask how and ask why and appreciate being thoughtful It’s not a roadmap to follow, it’s a vine in the jungle it’s a line to stay humble, The divine seem to mumble as we grow higher and higher, we come up from out under they ought tear us asunder, but even if they did we’d fall down in wonder, and build back up again even as we blunder are we not all friends? so then build off each other, and as we do we grow wiser and thus live nicer lives, no longer blinded by the unknown mights that troubled us before. I know I talk too big but it’s knowledge I implore and if college can provide it then I’m down to try it so long as my voice is heard, I’m never quiet, Ha!
