Beat and vocals are moi. Nothing serious.

I am the world's only man
I am the world's loneliest man
I perch against the night sky like a hawk
but feel more like a victim of the trigger click
Slow mow, withering, slick
In that I'm melting
Stone only in my stoic eyes
Frozen at coffee late at night
Blood red like the base of a guillotine
Oh to be free
I have seen the valley of death
I am the grim reaper
Alley creeper, the shadow sneaker
Cleaning in silence.
Underneath a stubborn shy kid
Lies symphonies of violence
I know evil
I have carressed the hidden depths of people
I have looked in the mirror and seen hate
Laughing hate. Laughing to hide.
But that stopped. Now I just laugh.
This world is my sick joke.

Nice

Some of the lyrics seemed a little lazy, not that much rhyme in there. But it's abstract and has a nice feel, i loved "blood red like the base of a guillotine". Another thing i always like is how original your beats are. You never have some generic hip-hop tune in the background and you always create an ambience with some interesting sounds and rhythms. Nice stuff


BigRed responds:

I have been reading a lot of my stuff at poetry nights and what I'm starting to do is hop between forms. The first half isn't really meant to be over a beat at all, and I only start writing to a beat on the line "I am the grim reaper". I think I'm fooling with the line between free form spoken word poetry and hip hop, and I definitely haven't gotten it yet.

On re-reading this though most of it is pretty lazy writing anyways, haha, just rambles without an edit. The only lines I find interesting now are the ones that contain what you picked out:

"Slow mow, withering, slick in that I'm melting. Stone only in my stoic eyes, frozen at coffee late at night, blood red like the base of a guillotine. Oh to be free"

Thanks for the feedback, it's much appreciated!
