“CLIP MY WING”

Here’s a track I recorded with my wife and DJ Veranda-Panda (together we are SPITMUNKY):

CLIP MY WING featuring Karen Melissa Logan

You know what they say / same shit different day / same script different play / same step different sway / the way’s not clear but the path still trodden / the fruit still sweet even though the core’s rotten / money make man so man make money / money in the hand make a man head funny / money in the head make a man stand soulless / still a broke man and you know this / so this / must be the time for togetherness / to weather this / storm that we form with the deadliest elements / the evidence is obvious / the case is clear / but no place to hear so we face the fear with a deafness / turn on the table so we’re able to express this / bless this mic with a righteous intention / still flying high / hitting hard with my henchmen / still spitting fire coz the fire’s gonna cleanse them / dirt from the blade of the sword that I thrust in / soil in the sand of the land that I trust in’s / gonna be the dust in the mix with the ashes / the day that I stash this

I’m seeing Angels with my eyes but the Devil’s got my tongue man / Trying to live wise but still just a young man / I wanna be a leader for my seeds believe me / but life cuts deep and I bleed to easy / I’m running from the darkness towards the light man / I throw a peace sign but i’m ready to fight man / Ready to take flight / My cries rise / I sing / but the world’s sick / too quick to clip my wing

Still deep in the stucture / stuck in the system /begging for a buck / still stuck in submission / I’m stuck in my mission / I’m struck by conditions / how the poor still running with the rich’s permission / Who am I? they wanna say / and Why I got a voice? / and Why I gotta make noise? / like I got a choice man / speaking for the silent / I rhyme for the robots / sentimental cyborg / activate my voicebox / Done trying to please some with tricks of the tongue / not a young one no more / I know what I rap for / I had enough hand claps to slap on my ego / now I wanna spit a little facts for my people / fight for a cause so they might call you righteous / truth is applied ‘s’why they might wanna fight this / lies make it easier to step through the street / never noticing the dirt that’ll stick to your feet / with your eyes on the skies / all these lives trying to rise / trying to keep your style fly is why we wanna get high /  We never wanna lie / never wanna die no / never wanna show a tear from the fear in my flow / only ever wanna grow / only ever wanna glow / only ever wanna shine / the shine’s all we ever know / From day one son they sold the shine / tryin’ to purchase the soul and the mind

I’m seeing Angels with my eyes but the Devil’s got my tongue man / Trying to live wise but still just a young man / I wanna be a leader for my seeds believe me / but life cuts deep and I bleed to easy / I’m running from the darkness towards the light man / I throw a peace sign but i’m ready to fight man / Ready to take flight / My cries rise / I sing / but the world’s sick / too quick to clip my wing
