Instrumental: Rama, the Great!
Lyrics:
- In the end, we all turn to dust.
Buried beneath 6 feet of earth's crust.
So I use my time wisely, ridin' the wave.
Play my part precisely as it's supposed to be played.
But nowadays man will lay broken, cut open.
The majority of people deem their own dreams hopeless.
Slaves to ourselves and the coin that we crave,
We work everyday just hopin' for change.
Days turn to weeks, weeks into months.
Before you know it, another year has begun.
A pleasant pattern I don't wanna be a part of,
I'm smarter than that, not society's product.
They got us buying shit that we don't even need.
And our lack of self-esteem makes history repeat.
So I've gotta plant the seeds and make sure that you know.
They only let us breathe so that we can die slow.
Hook: Get smart, read books, go learn.
Your stupidity amazes me, it's a concern.
Whatdya wanna do in life, wheredya wanna go?
The only way to get there is if you are in the know.
- Wake up, go to school, sit down, learn.
They've turned us to machines by the next midterm.
But I won't let it happen to me, no sir.
I'm makin' history with these eloquent words.
Yeah, they call me influential cause this is off the mental, cuz.
Breakin' stereotypes, cause I'm white, I can't rhyme huh?
You're wrong, I'm right, I'm left.
and I bet you haven't noticed that I haven't taken a breath.
Not above you, we're at the same level.
I just choose to pay dues, makin' me special.
What's that, you don't know of Psilo?
Why am I not surprised that you've never heard my flow?
Maybe it's the people that don't spread the word.
Or maybe it's my feeble attempt at being heard.
No matter, it doesn't make a difference.
Food on the platter, recognize the privilege.
Hook: Get smart, read books, go learn.
Your stupidity amazes me, it's a concern.
Whatdya wanna do in life, wheredya wanna go?
The only way to get there is if you are in the know.

Shit I just got dissed on someone elses track by my #1 feedbacker! OUCH.

You're getting there dude. I battle a lisp too, it can be shitty, people develop a bias towards it.

You got your delivery down, get a little closer to the mic (don't clip) and try to mix your vocals a bit clearer, or just normalize a bit higher.

The flow needs less pauses, which is giving you a less candid sound.

Definite potential here - just needs improvements here and there.
