====================
Lyrics:
Open up your mind, let the rhythm decipher the rhyme. Each and every memory tells of a time frozen. So I remember everyday hopin to find truth in a moment.

The past is somethin I could never forget. Whether or not I was entirely concerned with bein lucid. I laugh when I take the time to sit and reminisce, cause I used to be afraid I had a life I couldn't deal with. Can you feel this? If ya hear what I'm sayin, you've probably been there, too. My problems began to control my freedom of bein able to move around in my own skin, my environment closed in. I didn't think I'd see another breathin human again. The essence of my chi was depleted within a second of seein that any lesson unheeded wasn't acceptable. I jumped up and saw my life through my spectacles. I had to rectify the wrongs I had experienced, and now I testify how strong the human spirit is. If I had given up when I was really low down, I never would have met all of the people that I know now.

Now I know, I'm a manifestion of all of my thoughts, my actions, interactions and attractions navigating sanity settlin into my zen, I enter in the zone to cultivate my gift again. I bow to my soul to determine how I'm gonna win the race to definin myself first, cause lyin to self hurts, I'm findin my self-worth as a diamond in hell's turf. The climate was well-worth the craft that it'd tempered in me, so my perception of heat could decrease and I could finally breath in the breeze. When it comes to bein free I feel like everyone should feed in the feast, or be allotted their share of the meals at least cause stealing to eat is a terrible thing to be. I'm peelin back the bandages to manage my manner of my speech whether I can or cannot achieve the feat of defeating disease. Gotta look to myself to discover all I could be.

Tomorrow, I'll be incorporated into my dreams. The silence that I've harbored'll be scarred as a part of me, now my eyes are finally open to a limitless artistry cause I've spoken what was tearin out my heart, see?
I was hidin behind my destiny not knowin it held the recipe to openin up the best of me as a human with a soul to overcome his greatest misery by givin into visions of envisioning flight, now I'm livin my life.

INA MOMENT, ACT 1 - 1 - 1

When I listen to Hip Hop I pay most of my attention to the lyrics, and this is a true Hip Hop song, because it's about substance rather than material. Your flow really went with the song and the lyrics. The mixture of a peaceful background with the glitchy/broken beat felt sorta awkward but it was unique. I still enjoyed listening to the song. The greatest aspect of this song is definitely the message, and more people should look at music this way.

Thanks a lot man, I totally agree. Without the meaning, hip hop wouldn't exist. It's a very true form of expression. Thanks for the detailed critique. :)
