lyrics

Sick if preachers, sick of Moses,
No doors to break down it’s open
No mountain, no tablets:
There are only habits.
Are you satisfied yet
With how many good answers you get?
Questions to each other
Remain unanswered.
I did not write this like my thesis,
Lauryn Hill get over it.
If my teacher sees this,
He won’t see kosher shit!
I treat this like a good friend
See them often, laugh and lend
A helping hand :
Treat your work like you’d like to be treated.
Too many thinkers think alike
Some beacons do remain unaligned
Kindness drips towards inside
To places yet unseen.
Too many things
For no reason being said.
Too many human beings
Satisfied with what they’re fed.

Too many rappers
And way too few poets.
Too many newspapers
Too few classics.
Too many bucket lists
For one or two crazy trips,
Way too much emphasis
Put on passing useless tests.
There are no second chances
At intercepting fresh glances;
Borderline romances
Are the only kind.
I can’t hear what you’re saying :
I’m busy helping out the hostess.
It’s not a popularity contest.
To be honest, we’re all blind.
