Mind a flurry
Not in a hurry
Waiting for the next flight
To take me out of this city
Bright lights sure look pretty
But on further inspection
They begin to look shitty

My mind and words combine into one
As we all sit watching this world become undone
I begin to speculate and try to articulate the
Thoughts that soon begin to manifest
In my own state of the union address
One pointed towards the people in charge
Not talking down to the people at large who
May be out there looking for jobs or
Trying to score something for an addiction
That they use to to feel better about their constructive eviction
Because the ones who make the laws seem to be the best at flapping their jaws
About how we are the ones to blame for
This fucked up game they play with
Our livelihoods and trying to sell your goods
To the next highest bidder
It really makes you reconsider
The facts you hear on the news and it
Makes you feel like singing the blues

Mind a flurry
Not in a hurry
Waiting for the next flight
To take me out of this city
Bright lights sure look pretty
But on further inspection
They begin to look shitty

So I take my spot on the podium and
begin to speak like the beat of a drum and I
Start to tell everybody off and
How the corporations can just fuck off but I
Remember the words of wiser men who told me
That these things happen again and again so I
Think about everything I've seen and heard from
War to genocide to a lone babies cries and
I realize I've become just another part of the herd
Ignorance and hypocrisy fill all our lives and the only way we are gunna survive is to
Acknowledge all our faults and mistakes
Be a man and open the gates
Of your mind and your heart and
Fill your life with family and art or
Whatever may make you proud but just remember that
If you choose to ignore that storm cloud
Of imminent danger and hatred and you bowed
To these men of false authority
Then one day it may be a mushroom cloud.
But don't let fear and anger cloud your mind
This isn't just a message to all of mankind
But a reminder of who I should try to be and
Not to let these petty things take over me cause
In the end we only control our own actions
Life is about seeing through these endless distractions that
Split us into multiple factions and keep us from loving each other
Destroy the hate and take care of our mother
This is the only planet we have and it seems like we've only split it in halve but
I'm not offering an ultimate solution just
A possible new resolution for
Everyone to just act like a decent human being and
Quit with this insistent disagreeing on
Everything from music to war there's
More to life than this and if we don't stop we'll all end up on the floor
Regretting the hate and ignorance we spilt
Out of our mouths and be filled with guilt
So please before I finish speaking my peace
Just reflect on this little conversation piece and
Go do something good for someone cause
The selfless are the important ones.
A poetic rant about things that are currently on my mind about politics, money, and life. A friend of mine wants to turn this into a rap.
