about

This track took me the longest to prepare out of every song on the album...Intros have to be right. I wanted to explain and express the albums content and vibe as a whole in one short song. Side note if you've never seen the Basquiat bio pic starring Jeffery Wright (Currently on Boardwalk Empire as Dr. Narcisse) you are slippin! Its on Netflix now.

lyrics

You ever wondered what it feels like
To catch flights?
Due to desire and unstoppable appetites
Blood sweat fire and tears
Your dreams near
Working a bullshit job can make it so clear
Even questioning God
Can bring you so near
And so far
But so far
They won't let me in
So now I'm workin the crowbar
Breakin in
Black hoodie red gloves black sneaks
No mask no need want you to see
I can't resist showin my face
Need you to see
Who you denied
Now
Who you admire
No fake smiles and handshakes
Go bathe in the fire hoe
(Pause)
Bon voyage
In the paint tryin to take that charge
Got me feelin like Jay do
Hold the applause
Cuz I made this song just for you
No facade
Keys open doors and Vs in the garage
Mine came from brain power
Not white swirled in a jar
But even a goodie two shoes ain't promised tomorrow
Middle class went to class
Had to beg a barrow
Steal even
But still I'm still breathin
Middle of the swats no pot bearly eatin
The reason
Cuz my freedom meant everything
And without it
life didnt mean a thing
