Already out of time...but I'm still here though
Sometimes... "What a wierdo"!

My time's up, but I stole the mic
so it's back to the rhymes and resisting the vices
cooking rice cuz I can't break bread without dough
Get quicker, better. No Quicken Loans. Dissolving
Problems like a lozenge in alcohal
if you never look up never see the roof fall in / Rufilin
All the optimists tell me I'm a pessimist
All the pessimists tell me I'm an optimist
All the fake fucks tell me I'm the realist
when it comes to being real I still don't give a shit,
Nut, piss, spit...any kind of entrails
See me with a bad cat, you know the details
If you're burning up, I throw salt when I see snails
Sickening to some how I keep my ends well
when the city ends, well, then I'll set sail
Send a postcard see you in hell. Get well soon.

velvet sky
way up high
down to die

Set sail, came back cuz I felt unwell
unrest upset unsexed unhealthy
as fuck and the drugs the doctor ordered ain't helping
I popped a pill and the sky turned velvet
Hell or high water what if hell and high water
bloodrain fell cats and dogs that are bipolar
picture to help you figure why my city high as ayatollah
and below the sea level, we keep sinking lower
Right now, I'm at the bottom of a glass
Want to see a fee shake like the bottom of a stash (*weed bag, not mustache*)
Want to see the freeze frame in the moment so it lasts
But alas, I'm looking in my wallet and it laughs
I sigh "wise guy" I gotta get it together
Water on my face while I'm looking in the mirror
Fire in my eyes and it couldn't be clearer
Dirty life I'm living and I'm loving every minute of it
