This record is the most unique in that it's the only beat that wasn't specifically made for this project. brandon* worked this super dope remix of Bibio's All the Flowers and I felt something special when I heard it.
When you feel it, you feel it, and can't deny it's truth.
Torture, related torture/I carried sorrow for days/what was the source of/my life's pain/it's centered within a skin tone/when life plays with knives you betta get grown/and my eyes have seen many punishment/given food for thought and couldn't stomach it/now I'm wise and grown/the wit lasted/another year you lit my party with matches/and the fire didn't care what it caught/tarnish the floor with a smile of mischievous thoughts/I don't miss it at all/made it missing it's parts/should have figured it odd/thinking this is my fault/in that cage of ecstasy I was closer to God/I was closer to God/tellin me what you thought/pad the walls with my mystery/maybe it made sense to me/stare into the heavens with my brethren while she visits me/
will you still love me after this?
will she still love me after this?
will he still love me after this?
Yall don't love me.
bodies on top of bodies/embrace the motherland/and grab another's hand/hold your children close and try to help them understand/the stage is set you should cross the land/across the burning sands/damn/dreams of social stability/sympathetic lack of real action is killing me/or maybe the will in me/I see the troubles of the world in real time/& lies/so when I say there's trouble/it's execution of real lives/tell me, maybe, what you mean to me/tell me anything and everything or maybe what you seem to be/tell me the truth so I can be the enemy/destroy my population/everything I hold dear to me/tell me now that you can hold me back/tell me now it was provoked attack/tell me how all of my people shape the world/set the tone/but now we're back in black/bullshit/now tell me how all my people lack
(they spread their lies in righteous laughter/we are the bodies that their after/can't keep the quiet cause we see you/it doesn't matter we will beat you)
