Default This 'n That

A Passionate artist pours his thoughts on a wall,
Sure before the wall is painted over or falls,
No more than a small handful of passers-by,
Will register his work on any level past their eyes,
Ask him why his capacity for self progression-
Is exhausted on his art rather than his profession,
His answer likely will exemplify artistic expression,

Whatís the definition of a real MC?
According to Einstein itís the square root of E,
Cause if E equals MC squared it must be,
That the square root of E then equals MC,
Empty inside, canít tempt me with bribes,
Cause the entry is wide for plenty of scribes,
Who went three to five, then sent free their pride,
Consequently they thrived, then spent Gís and died,
And this suspicious business is a vicious cycle,
MCís live ficticious lives behind the mic like George Michael,
Forged styles rule the industry, while fools spin these sinfully,
Push the boundaries of infinity in a vicinity within a week,
Skinning me alive as Iím striving for composure,
Iíd turn to burning bridges if thereís no alternative for closure,
If integrity is something you canít learn to give, itís over,

A passionate rapper pours his thoughts on a track,
Knowing just as sure as a sawís gonna hack,
That no more than a small handful of individuals,
Will ever hear the track, much less register the hidden jewels,
But he still puts in hours, meticulously crafting-
His darts cause in his heart his art is everlasting,

"A covering or cover" defines the word (w)rapper,
How much do you tailor what swims out your snapper?
Is rapping just a disguise for what lies inside?
Behind your thin pride, might find your skin hides-
A boring twin side which died in the spotlight,
Look me in the eyes and tell me Iím not right,
And what might be unsightly still clears the shelves at light speed,
And the heights weíve reached for will breach your drive to fight greed,
Our sight needs to be focused on things that have broke us,
Cause the future looks hopeless in the wings of these locusts,
Only few who make a lonely break will keep away,
Rejoin the group to swoop foundations other people layed,
Not knowing that the hollow benefits they reapíll fade,
In a pool of the same, itís a school full of shame,
The rules of the game are to pull fools by chains,
And Iím guilty of swarming, and it fills me with mourning,
My skills need re-forming, and I will heed the warning,
Though in this case itís too late, a new fate may await me,
But lately Iíve just felt too lazy to break free.

Cheers Sheepish.

Nak, I put effort into everything I write. Although this wasn't as focused as most stuff I write. I almost always know exactly what I wanna write about when I start something. With this one I just started writing it and let it go wherever it went. Why, you thought it was average? Wack even? Be honest G. I can take it.

Martyr, what's wrong with my mathematics? I'm no mathematician, but if E=MC squared then the square root of E must = MC, right?

The line you quoted was talking about mc's who sell out, blow up and make a lot of money, then fade away. The G stood for Grands.

Empty inside, canít tempt me with bribes, ...I'm empty inside if I can't express myself in my lyrics. You can't tempt me to write about bullshit with money.
Cause the entry is wide for plenty of scribes,
...Plenty of writers will have no hesitation or trouble in selling out. It's like passing through a wide entry. They'll make the move with no trouble or strain.
Who went three to five, then sent free their pride,
...These scribes who are selling out previously battled (metaphorically or literally) their way to get in the game (went 3 to 5 rounds), then let go of any pride they had by selling out.
Consequently they thrived, then spent Gís and died,
...Blew up for a while, made and spent their money, then faded away.

I just wanted to break that whole part down because I fucken hate pointless multies, haha. Since you brought up that one line I figured I may as well explain that whole part and show I wasn't just rhyming random shit.

I liked it, came across as a lyrical poem, like the message clever.
Sort of like riding in a boat against crashing waves and rigid winds.

its not that i wasn't feeling it, there wer gems in there like i pointed out...but IMO some parts didn't come with the sickness that you usually bring, i.e. TO ME, the E=MC2 part sounded like a filler, but thats just me, dont take it to heart

Same as ever. I'm not here much either. I'll still drop something in here now and then though. It's pretty dead. A few good writers have passed through here and there. You got any new music floating around?

Yeah, that's cool. I'd prefer you were honest. I'm writing for an album at the moment, and it's hard to be on my A game all the time. Especially since I almost never use choruses and shit. So it's just lyrics, lyrics, lyrics. I get tired and lazy at times. Maybe I should be more patient. Anyway, cheers for the critique.

And thanks J.T.S and Sleepwalker. I appreciate it.

Well I guess that explains why I needed a tutor to get through maths in high school then.

Cheers Fred.
