This is a song about greed and how nothing gets done.

Demo quality. I'm going to redo vocals and re-upload at a later date.

The beat is called Pumpkinhead, produced by misterscoops. Here's the link:

Lyrics

Caught in a fucking deadlock, deadstop
This shit's more fucking tangled than a dreadlock
Dead kids, bad cops, bad men, dead cops
Solution's like a carousel, we're waiting for a sign, stop
Calling for backgrounds checks,
Required psych tests,
May solve a Sandy Hook,
Won't stop a bullet from a kid's chest
So while we wait on city leadership
Have to carry just to buy a fucking slurpee and a bag of chips
Protect and serve, more like serve the docket
The only thing people wanna protect is their pockets
Bottom line's the bottom line's the bottom line, shit,
Human lives treated like a fucking side bitch.
We're acting like this shit is Casper,
Fractured, families split apart because of quotas
Coda, a sleeping giant's in a coma
And when it wakes up, climb down it's fucking beanstalk
Do more than fucking sweet talk.

This world’s in chronic atrophy
Catastrophe, society standing at the apogee
Fight or flight, day or night, ignorance or agony
Make a choice, raise your voice, understand the gravity
It fucking saddens me, free thought paralyzed
Living in a waking nightmare, wool pulled over eyes
Wake up, surmise, realize, decision’s your own
The writings on the billboards, terror is home grown
It’s like, do as your told, buy as your sold
Spend, work, fuck, go home, die when your old
Rent till you own, and maybe one day you’ll feel complete
Walk down the street, fresh shoes on your feet, clutching receipts
Meanwhile the disenfranchised struggle to hang onto hope
The hills they have to clamber up are covered in soap
As for the rest, we pledge to the dream; it’s buy now or bust
Hands over hearts, in dollars we trust, fuck

Lie, steal, fuck, kill
If this is the American dream, I want to wake up

pretty dope, cadence is on point and the track is well mastered

Thanks! I'm actually going to have another go at this when I have a chance to dedicate time to recording and editing. Want to work on improving my tone and flow. Life keeps getting in the way. Responsibilities are for the birds...

Dope!

Thanks. Going to record the vocals again and re-upload this weekend. I'm not happy with the way it turned out. That's what I get for rushing.

A deserved R4R review:
Although the lyrics have power, the song lacks power in combination with vocals. On it's own it's all right. The lyrics on their own are awesome, but the combination somehow doesn't feel as powerful as you'd think both combined. I'd have gone for more bass, agressive beats, more sidechaining.

Another thing to improve on may be how you emphasis certain syllables, in order to give the song a more dynamic and rhythmic feel.

Apart from how the song feels, I think you did a great job. The lyrics are very original and professional. It’d be a perfect poem without the music.

I hope you’ll make a similar project in the future, but then with background music that “amplifies” your message. I’m very impressed, because this is your first upload, and I hope you’ll get far in the music world.

Thanks for he kind words. This venture was my first attempt at rapping again in about 5 years. I'm not a particularly good producer, thus why I chose to use a track produced by someone else. Anything else I upload will most likely follow suit. I get what you are saying about my flow and it is certainly something I've been working on. I'm going to record this again. I also have a couple other songs in the works at the moment. Anyway, thanks for the input. It's greatly appreciated!

The vocals could be improved slightly, as you admitted yourself. You did a great job with the lyrics, summarising the dark shit of the american society. Respect bro!


hellomynameisjunior responds:

Thanks man! I plan on recording the vocals again this weekend. Then spend a day mixing them a bit. I'm still a novice at audio production, so my emphasis recording this time is really going to be on strengthening my flow.
