lyrics

I'm letting the music speak to me. Its reaching out eagerly,
screaming in my ear "ARE YOU HEARING ME?!"
I hear you loud, I hear you clearly
telling me "follow the yellow brick road!"
spoken in MJ quotes and woven in gold.
The cast iron fires required to reaching my goal have been exposed: ammonia under my nose!

(Follow me) This is my odyssey!
(I will lead) I clear my mind to see is it the smoke in the air? Are the stars up forming the shape of a bear?

(Follow me) This is my odyssey!
(I will lead) I clear my mind to see

I'm letting the music speaking to me but i"m coming back with questions.
"Is this what my quest is? I know my pen is well endowed but now that I have this new direction, how can you vow with sounds that I have been destined to write out confessions that allow a crowd an outlet for expression?" It says "every pensive session is dense with a message, life's about lessons. It makes no sense with out a depth of perception."

(Follow me) This is my odyssey!
(I will lead) I clear my mind to see is it the smoke in the air? Are the stars up forming the shape of a bear?

(Follow me) This is my odyssey!
(I will lead) I clear my mind to see

I'm lost in a foreign forest, don't know which way north is.
I'm not even sure if this is what a metaphor is.
My thoughts are like thorns to the florist: Annoying and impossible to avoid them.

My ballpoint is recording the calm before the storm hits.
I'm just trying to have it all make more sense.
For instance: These trees allow us to breath but the color of their leaves sing no difference to me.
Yet here i'm standing in a city divided racially
So I'm on the side of the line that has the whites face me.
I'm an underdog fighting a demigod, basically.
A lion fighting Goliath, I'm who I was raised to be.
It's obvious the political giants are stewing beef.
Violence to riots, that's how it grew to be?
Truthfully, we can heal this community.
Let's start today, beautifully, musically.

Look deep into these tiger's eyes,
please can we compromise?
We all need relief from the fibs and lies!
Look deep into these tiger's eyes,
please can we compromise?
We all need relief from the fibs and lies!

What we have here is a true opportunity for unity!
How many more times will we cry through a eulogy?
In this jungle, we rumble! Nah, we don't rest in peace!
So come together, bring the noise: Anthrax and public enemy.

My vibes are Neosporin, are you absorbing what I'm pouring?
I said my vibes are Neosporin, are you absorbing what I'm pouring? Make yourself absorbent.
