What reaches inside you? What is Life really about for you? What motivates you and in what direction are you drawn?
Some people are motivated strictly by possessions – to the point that there’s no longer a way to distinguish between possessor and possessed.
Some people are motivated by the “power” to manipulate others. Some of these people do that for money – which would fall into the first group mentioned, but for some the money is secondary to the ability to make people do their bidding for them. It’s an ego trip…
It’s easy to forget that we are souls temporarily inhabiting bodies. Many of us seem to believe that this world we “live” in is it. No wonder there is so much fear. It’s also not surprising that debilitating religions are used so frequently by the rulers of society as a weapon of control. Fear is powerful for those who use it. And, crippling for the victims…
The following is a song I wrote for fun years ago. It was an attempt at rhyming over a funk rock rhythm – as opposed to hip hop or bubble gum pop. A few of the lines were added spontaneously so the flow is somewhat unstable – like society. It’s time to bust out of the bullshit trap of mainstream music that stuffed suits with sterile minds tell you to listen to. Be patient and give this a try. Below the link are the lyrics:
Freestyle intro: A rainbow of feelings splash across my senses, dissolving pretenses and emotional fences
Now, what touches your soul and makes you whole? Plays a challenging role in your strive toward a goal? Helps you roll when you lose control? Takes you for a stroll when Life takes its toll? False expectations reflect frustrations Respect creations Deflect condemnations as justifications for false representations Pretentious attitude betrays false gratitude Ritual thinking leaves you no latitude Habitual drinking when you grieve – is that bad or crude? Or sad and rude? You’re chasing the plot when you’re placed on the spot Never show traces of rot when you’re placing your shot And, in case you forgot… A fall from Grace is your lot if you waste what you got Whether you taste it or not Don”t choke on your words like you’re fighting a face full of snot You know what I’m saying? Are you still playing… Instead of praying? Are your nerves still fraying while society is still straying Into dangerous waters? We’re losing sons and daughters In unnecessary slaughters Sometimes, in close quarters If the press were “fact sorters” instead of distorters… We might have a way out Sometimes, yesterday’s whisper is today’s shout With a stray pout Causing an insane doubt To get played out And, maybe if we stayed out Of other countries’ faces We wouldn’t be weighed down with so many disgraces Building military bases All over the planet in far off places Trying to win useless races Leaving the middle class in a putrid stasis While Fascist “elitists” send us on stupid chases While they’re raking in steady cash On each and every clash Making the working class crash When they get a freakin’ ass rash From sitting on us so fuckin’ hard No shitting – this is the slow part When did the show start To look like a flow chart? Our leaders have no heart Allowing us to grow apart And feel pinched like they’re throwing darts They’re causing us pain And, we pause from the strain They stick claws in our brain With sick laws they sustain Those pricks flaws are a stain They kick jaws just for gain Inflict more to maintain Their slick causes to attain What they think they need In a blink you could be freed From the stink of your greed Let desire shrink and you’ll succeed In maintaining control Of your brain as a whole Still attaining your goal And, maybe, … Regaining your soul
You can’t hear the beat that drives me
The fact that you’re full of fear doesn’t surprise me
Your flashing lights don’t hypnotize me
Your crashing flights are full of fuckin’ lies,see
It’s time to evolve past Capitalism people
Wake the fuck up!
