This is me trying to reconcile with my inner insanity. Reason with it. Welcome it, cautiously. Enjoy...

[Lyrics]

Just keep running.
Running, running, running...
It's not like I'll ever find you-
-even though I live /inside/ you. heh.

I'm not one to ask me "why?"
I don't even mean to pry
but why am I afraid to deep-en
the part of me that defies

keep me inside
keep me on ice
Show me the things
that I think are so nice

Run, Run
Faster, old friend
Cause no matter what
I will find you again

[s-s-s-s-s-s-s-s-s-s]Sneaky as a thief
and
gentle as a heart attack
nothing is complete
without a massive maniac

attack-ing
and sack-ing
I can't stop hi-jacking
myself

I'm lacking,
on this continental-shelf-sized
attracting-me ridge
while I'm tracking a bridge
that just won't appear
So I'm cold as a fridge

Frozen in place
by the words "just in case"
I cannot be the one
to look my fears in the face

But, I know that I don't have the time
to keep my objections rejected inside
the lips know the words
but they just cannot move
I feel so absurd but I know it be-hooves

me

to keep it inside
swallow my pride
make it another day
feeling deprived
of my right to show them
what they put inside
to make them, oh jesus, uh
Apologize?

I'm not one to ask me "why?"
I don't even mean to pry
but why am I afraid to deep-en
the part of me that defies

keep me inside
keep me on ice
Show me the things
that I think are so nice

Run, run
Faster, old friend
Cause no matter what
I will find you again

[Just keep running.]

This is insane, sounding. The juxtaposition between the almost cheerfully sorrow hook and the gritty grime verses is so interesting here. Lyrics on point. Loving the general delivery and vocal projection; very dynamic and exciting. Flow was good; although it seemed to falter a bit near the end of the verse; that combined with the "to make them, oh jesus, uh" line sounded more like it was read, rather than possessing a more conversational/'theatrical tone to it (which you display throughout this song already), maybe with a more sassy or emphasized "UH?" it would communicate the intentional meaning more clearly.
Dope track overall, wasnt feeling the beat at first, but it's grown on me. Both your voice and this beat go well together.


NeoAlchemist247 responds:

To start, I absolutely MUST tell you that I had to look up the definition of Juxtaposition and I'm impressed with your usage of that word. Rappers' vocabulary never ceases to amaze me.

I want to thank you for your incredibly in-depth review. I don't get them as often as I used to, and they really do wonders to shed light on what I'm doing right as well as what I can improve. Really, thank you, man.

Noice :3 Using a Gerbo track as a trap beat :p ~S~


NeoAlchemist247 responds:

Is this trap? I dunno, man. Legitimately, lol. I just write based on what feels right. I'm glad you enjoyed it, Mr. Skiddle! :D
