And so I started with a single thread of tapestry
Fractured though it was I sowed a seam between the imagery
Pieced it back together with a little love and elbow grease
Damn, won’t ya check it now, the muthafuckin masterpiece.
So feel my eloquence, crafted outta common sense
The grass that flourished out of reach has found a way to breach the fence.
So there’s my beaten track, so often I would trace it back
But now I got a better class of company to gather slack.
Well this is something new I’ve sown and I can harvest soon
A daily kinda happiness that life could wound or time can prove.
And I’m devout about the value of my disbelief
Coz nothing stays the same except for change and that’s the mystery.
Now there’s a better way, baby don’t you hesitate
Seems to me we navigate the scenery in meta-state
It’s divinity, the way that we spin ‘n’ weave,
Conscious state, sit ‘n’ meditate on the tapestry
We start with the frayed jeans sow them into art,
The beat is the material giving us a place to start,
The voice is the art, words deep within my heart,
Mixing up a beauty, I can feel its vibe moving me,
Usually so brutal but now I’m trying it beautifully,
Is there any point or am I just acting stupidly?
To take something ugly and turn it into a masterpiece,
That’s too hard to beat it seems so hard to me,
But a part of me, also finds it hard to leave,
Because you can do it if you just believe,
A little part of me, also finds it hard to leave,
Because you can do it if you just believe, hey!
Between the failures and the victories, the hustle sticks
And even when we’re ash and dirt the world just shrugs and on it spins.
Inter-woven, interlocking, intricate design,
The pastel and the greyscale intimately intertwine.
And I’m no different, just a ghost that lingers on these streets
Fragile on the surface coz it’s broken underneath, like...
Yo, something hidden yet it’s written there in plain sight,
Something that we try to change, but never seem to take time,
To hit the brakes right? And fix mistakes right?
Yet we always seem so keen to move and take flight.
