about

A political hip hop track featuring a lyrically abstract take on our current times, each verse holding a unique theme. Read between the lines with this one.

And while even though these times can be dark, don't forget:
dawn will always break.

lyrics

{"Dawn Will Always Break".}

Commit me.
They say I commit all these cardinal sins by simply questioning what happens when the Cardinals sin.
When venomous particles blend with the carnival winds, I'm curious to know if they fucking mark it a win.
Sharks with a stench digitized a sparkling lens delivering targeting trends to feed our narcissism;
harvesting benzodiazepines & marketing them to suckers like me to relax when I’m startled & tense.
The stars at a glimpse all seem like such marvelous friends, but every angel with a halo has a darkness within.
When werewolves are barking again, don't start to give in.
Morning will come. Dawn will break. The starving will end.

Dawn will always break. Dawn will always break.
Dawn will always break. Dawn will always break.
Dawn will always break. Dawn will always break.
Dawn will always break. And the starving will end.

Horror stories at the oratory. Making love in monasteries.
Picking Pinkie's Brain to find the whereabouts of Tom & Jerry.
Pluck the rose's petals. Swallow thorns. Palm the berries.
There are sonnets in the soil; seeded pistil souls that psalms unbury.
Still, even dawn feels very contrary.
Tried to save the world, but they found me far from honorary.
Faded commentary in the iron arrow's irony.
Diamonds in mahogany. The rusty sword is blinding me.
Changing tides & weather patterns, racing river rapids.
Training dragons in my dungeon, riding ‘em through blizzards backwards;
pitter-patter with their species, shoot the shit & jibber jabber,
skin the scales for armor. Then re-cage the lizard after.

Dawn will always break. Dawn will always break.
Dawn will always break. Dawn will always break.
Dawn will always break. Dawn will always break.
Dawn will always break. And the starving will end.

Ayo,
dwelling in the gutted bones of a stegosaurus carcass, adding & subtracting the coming & going of stardust,
I brew potions in a cauldron with an alien wand found on a stalagmite wandering an azalea farm.
The paraphernalia of a paleontology version of pin the tail on the donkey left these nails impaled through my palm.
I’m sailing through this bacchanalia flaunting fancy regalia garments to blend in as a Saturnalian swan.
The eyes of Poseidon hide in mine.
They shall unveil at the dawn tales of a swamp creature with a reptilian jaw.
...Fish bones, scales, tails, & gator claws;
grounded up with peppercorn & table salt. It ate it all.

Dawn will always break. Dawn will always break.
Dawn will always break. Dawn will always break.
Dawn will always break. Dawn will always break.
Dawn will always break. And the starving will end.
