SOUND

I want you to look back
At times you were at fault
I want you to understand
All the reasons you’d revolt

Take matters in your hands
Be aware of what you’ve sought
Put it all together
And thus you’ve created your own thought
This world is so judgmental
Which is what makes it difficult
You gotta stand up for yourself
Ignore all the insults

You gotta let your mind withhold
All the knowledge so it’ll grow
So you cannot be told
Right from wrong cause you’ll know

You’re now aware man of the scene
Verification by your means
Understatements that just seem
Seem to change occasionally
Are now justified and can be seen
Can be viewed differently
Can be estimated perfectly
So now you shine, now you beam

Currently on top
The knowledge grants you power so you know you can’t be stopped

That’s what happens when your mind’s clear
You tend to appear
Appear to everyone as a visual they hold dear

But before on top man you start down
Down and unfound
Undiscovered, unsupported
No matter what you put out
If not clear your voice will carry
It’ll pass through then just drown
That’s why you gotta focus
You gotta be sound

Sound like the words of this verse in my mind
I speak in my thoughts but you hear through my rhymes
I may be afraid to let out but I’ll never confine
Confine what’s inside cause man I’m so sound

I’m sound like a speech
I’m sound to cries of pain
I’m sound to understanding why your emotions are more like stains

I’m sound to my words
I’m sound to my phrase
I’m sound to all my statements even when they’re out of place

I’m sound to my cause
So my point of being is explained
I understand my purpose
So therefore I’m certain

Like a priest I do believe
I’m so determined I shall achieve
If she’s not found then I’ll seek
If you don’t know then I will teach
If ever lost he path I’ll lead
If you wanna hear I’ve prepared a speech
Wanna dine? I’ve made the eats
I just want to be there to support the needs

Cause life is full of changes
It stretches my mind, it strains
It freakin hurts, the pain is
One of a kind, the strangest
Cause I’m realizing now the game is
Up another level, upgraded
Got no moves they’re all taken
So worn out man I’m fainitin
Still stuck her man I’m waitin
Fallen apart yo, I’m breakin
Slippin back down I’m drainin
It’s time to relieve, that’s what I’m sayin

Seems my life got tainted with
Wish I could restart, repaintin it
I’m so frusterated I’m hatin it
I think my mind’s just tired so I’m wakin it
I’m going too slow so I’m floorin it
As soon as it dulls I’ll put some glow in it
I’m sufferin right now, but I’m enduring it
Cause if that’s what life gives you gotta go with it

Finding my path is hard in this town
I’m freakin underneath, I’m below the ground
Someone dig me out so that I can be found
Cause I can be heard
I can be sound…

Sound like the words of this verse in my mind
I speak in my thoughts but you hear through my rhymes
I may be afraid to let out but I’ll never confine
Confine what’s inside cause man I’m so sound

I’m sound like a speech
I’m sound to cries of pain
I’m sound to understanding why your emotions are more like stains

I’m sound to my words
I’m sound to my phrase
I’m sound to all my statements even when they’re out of place

I’m sound to my cause
So my point of being is explained
I understand my purpose
So therefore I’m certain

Like my words I can be heard
I’m representing my own turf
Never again underground
Cause I’m high above the dirt
Never sweatin over work
Cause the labor’s no effort
Feel no pain, feel no hurt
Cause I’m the fire and yall are burnt

Feel the heat man, from my power
I’m the present, I’m the hour
Rising above yall like a tower
Then drippin down back like a shower
I’m in control, I am the founder
So just back down, return to cower
Yall are the specs like dust and powder
I’m coughin up these words, so I can be louder

Cause I can be clear
And still be visible at once
I can be gone
But still be here in your thoughts
I can be dirty
But appear clean on the spot
I could still be cruising
Even though yall know that I walk

I could be awake
Even though I’m still dreaming
I could still arrive
Even though I just was leaving
I would get the girl
And I would do it without stealing
I would bring the pain
And I would do it without feeling

I withhold the energy
I feel it all inside
I know things will go my way
I got that certain vibe
I am aware of aspects
Cause I know how to recognize
I feel it all collide
Into a meaning I can’t describe

Man I’m so sound

I’m sound man on my own
Everybody’s leaving so I’m stuck here on my own
Feeling so exhausted, man I’m basically just droned
Hating how my voice can be turned down into a groan

It’s hard to be remembered when you’re barely even known
It’s hard to comprehend when there is very little shown
I’m only suffering here when I want to be gone
Everyday here has a change
But all the nights end the same

It’s not the life I picked
But it’s one that I am bound
Bound to forever
Can’t replace it, can’t renounce

I can only please myself
I’m the only one to astound
The one to have the final word
The only one to announce

Any changes that I want
Any things I wanna turn around
I decided where I want to go
I decide my whereabouts

I must peak up for myself
Must be clear, must be loud
Cause I get the final word
Because I am SOUND
