lyrics

they could burn all the books
and we’ll still tell stories
rap like we mean it
even well past our 40’s
cause we have to write
just to stay sane
and we must recite
poems again and again

When the pen is in my hand
I stumble upon a magical land
full of greatness and wonder
beauty sunshine and thunder
I search for that feeling
of when I first arrived
took one look at the ocean
ran jumped and swan dived
splashed head first into water
darkness turned gold
expressing these words
on pages as they fold
creasing perfection
origami of my soul
once the ceremony is over
and the morning takes control
waking to a new day
remembering the old
pathways we stumbled
in italics and bold
words typed out
left for the nights in bitter cold
to saturate with colours
so bright and so bold
shining in city lights
blurring to abstract hues
cues takin cannot lose
with pen scrape we choose
to write our way out of blues
and grandiose bad moods
into brilliant shades of warm tones
to heat up like home
using only a poem


they could burn all the books
and we’ll still tell stories
rap like we mean it
even well past our 40’s
cause we have to write
just to stay sane
we must recite
poems again and again

from intro to outro
even the interlude
the song is a healer
and I can prove it true
the amount of shitty days
that it got me through
to bring colour to life
not left to our own device
but can put up a fight
and start to feel right
with strokes of light
draw stars all night
make wishes of words
become fishers of worlds
expand into space
and let earth unfurl
to reveal the truth
to the boys and girls
with an ear to listen
and a moment to stop
to feel the heart clock
tick away in your chest
when you feel the art rock
it’s perfection at it’s best
