Track Name: Attention
I'm annoyed when my mind avoids
elevatin to the highest point
meditatin all night when I vape or light a joint
I deploy noize to ease the tension;
some fine invention, old vinyls just bidin time until we pay *attention*
waitin for the perfect section for an intervention
takin grooves in wax back til we slap that
sample entrenched in analogue habitats in the back of a break
kick drum slappin the bass frequency
frequently, peakin, leavin me without no decency
beats like these suffer from obesity
writin stanzas, that's the right activity for me
to find peace against these ankle biters like some pekanese
cease and desist the desire to speak to me
if you ain't teachin me somethin
or at least botherin to peacefully listen
you can say you can't get ill in a day,
but you can make progress if you're willin to pay
*attention*

you can't get ill in a day
but you can make progress if you're willin to pay *hey*
you can't get ill in a day
but you can make progress if you're willin to pay

attention, seems like it should go without a mention
but some lack a common sense and then some
trust I pushed lies unintentionally
until it was pointed out at some point by somebody
I humbly recalibrate
gravitate to that new body of truth
forget the one I had escaped
rather take my leave than keep my mental in a famished state
if you in the wrong place
no such thing as vanishing a landscape late
make the break no mandate keeps this man static
gas pedal heavy never mind the brake
let the route play out day in and out don't deviate
never steer you wrong abbreviation is BMN
and my stage show's known as PDA
cuz when I rock a microphone I know my life'll be okay
they say you can't get ill in a day
but you can make progress if you're willin to pay
*attention*

you can't get ill in a day
but you can make progress if you're willin to pay *hey*
you can't get ill in a day
but you can make progress if you're willin to pay

So much stimuli you could absorb
no way to justify any excuse to be bored
endless supply of surprises livin life inside this blue orb
at your core lies an infinite source of creativity
even if it starts as simple mimicry
warped reflection creates a skewed symmetry
we all use it differently, some of us boilin for visibility
others toilin in anonymity
describin the soil with a simile, the sky with some paint
seein images in your mind and feel inspired to create
even if primitive at the time you're hardwired to make mistakes
aim higher and start rivalin greats
but how are you livin powerfully not applyin your traits
wastin potential energy
realize and embrace what you got goin for you in some positive ways
and if you already pay attention you'll progress each day
