lyrics

i was facebook friends
with a couple of my favorite rappers
til they deleted me
for pluggin in their statuses
i'd send an inbox like
"yo i didn't mean no harm
just take a look at my name
yo don't be mad at this"
some would write back
shoutout to sage francis
but most would just view it
as a healthy distrust
man i could write a thousand page pamphlet
on why bein underground sucks

is it too much to ask
you to come to my shows and pay for
what i put my soul into and pray for?
support me and i'll make more
and i ain't talkin bout money
i'm still talkin bout the music dummy
what's funny?
maybe it should be
yo let's add a laugh track
drama becomes comedy
commonly laughed at
flip it all over and past that
i'm upside-down
with a pair of jeans on my head
an asshat
(audience laughs)
see what i mean?
it's a brave new world
brave new boys
brave new girls
this is ours for the takin
it's time to get up out
of these little bars and basements
and march toward amazement
march with a unified purpose
cos everybody marchin
in a different direction?
less than worthless
i got a set of nails
for this little spot right here
but need some help
with the rest of the surface
it ain't no stretch to say
that i deserve this
or even to say that it's my purpose
(ya heard this?)
let's make it happen once and for all
pack this little hall so tight
we shoot straight through the back wall
c'mon

(Chorus)
ain't been away for long
but still it seems that enough has transpired
that it's worth discussin
can't stay away for long
i guess it means that it's just about time
gotta think of somethin
ain't gonna fall for the traps that are laid
i believe i can lead us
to a greener pasture
i made this all
out of all that i made
yo it's all that i need
but the need is faster

i'd say that if you don't know me by now
you'll never know me
but i'm optimistic
and think that's just baloney
so loan me your ears
show me your tears
if you're feelin all lonely
and nobody cares
cos me?
i never shied away from bein that dude
got a sleeve on my heart
his whole arm is tattooed
i can't afford the surgery
to get it removed
sometimes they're just words to me
sometimes they're clues
it's a puzzle
i've been piecin all together for some time now
this one time
i never found the energy to wind down
i'm fine now
thanks for the concern
been one long windin road
and i'm givin thanks for what i've learned
but i'll bank a hard right at the next turn
i'm sure
when the sunlight is makin my neck burn
i run for the door
but this time i'm gonna stare straight at it
watch closely
it's magic
and you can have it

(Chorus)
ain't been away for long
but still it seems that enough has transpired
that it's worth discussin
can't stay away for long
i guess it means that it's just about time
gotta think of somethin
ain't gonna fall for the traps that are laid
i believe i can lead us
to a greener pasture
i made this all
out of all that i made
yo it's all that i need
but the need is faster
