Title track off of the upcoming mixtape, "Worm's Eye View."
(Re-uploaded. I previously posted this one, but I went back in and mastered it some more)
Destruction... Destruction... Destruction...
I'm flirting with disaster and I think she's getting wet
She god damn looks familiar, but I swear we've never met
I know it's wrong, but I like the sentiment
Even if this road leads nowhere but the sediment
I can see it in her eyes, I can see the evidence
Everything is screaming but it seems irrelevant
I can't hear a thing, but I feel the resonance
I'm wrapped up tight, but I feel the elements
Her lips are enticing, but her gaze is maddening
Her intentions are sinister, that's what I'm gathering
I know what I'm doing, but I can't tell what's happening
Slip into the cracks of my sanity shattering
A future with her's what I'm afraid of now
I gotta step away, I gotta change somehow
Things won't work and we can't wait it out
I don't even like her, but she's the only game in town
This thing ain't what it ought to be
And I just tune out when you talk to me
I laugh thinkin bout how you fought with me
You say it isn't real, but it's GOT to be
The chance, the American dream that we were promised
Is nothin more than fable if we're really bein honest
All that matters is the money in your wallet
And there's not a way to get it if you don't already got it
But they feed us the opiate, the dream, the hope
To keep us sedated, dumb, happy and broke
The ladder is greased up, it's the coolest dope
The dream is a lie, the cruelest joke
Cuz the dollar sign's the only real voice of the nation
While dreams of grandeur keep us complacent
They tell you, "take life by the balls and face it"
But all that really matters is your starting placement
I can't even tell you what the world might do
Gun powder, end it in a burst, high noon
Fine till you let the very worst find you
Lookin' at the city from a worm's eye view
Can you see where the blame was given on another graven image?
In squalor and filth they got a nerve to rave, "exquisite!"
I'm spitting brave resistance but they only gave indifference
And I wanna get out, but I can't escape the system
I can't erase the mission, what's the price I have to pay?
I'm sick of this monotony, I wanna blast away
Nocturne, haven't slept a wink since Saturday
And the only girl that's blowing up my phone is Sallie Mae
Abhorrence boils over, frothing from inside my gullet
I never reached the summit but this feels like the plummet
I know it's not familiar cause it's not the way they spun it
Never back down till we topple how they run it
Crawling out the deepest hole I'll ever hide inside
Crawling out the dirt while you look down like, "why reside?"
You'll find me down your nose, your life is mighty fine
You are the one in power, I am the 99
