This is probably my favorite song off of Reanimation.
I love the Lyrics in their entirety.
I dont want to keep you all day. Its the final verse that is just fire.
From the top to the bottom Bottom to top I stop
At the core I’ve forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my Saftey
The pictures’s there
The memory wont escape me…
I’m here at the podium talking, the ceremonial offerings
Dedicated to urban dysfunctional offspring
City governments are eternally napping
Trapped in greedy covenants, causin urban collapsing
Bullets that scar souls, with dark holds, get more than your car stole
Some hearts be blacker than charcoal
For real, this society’s deprivation depends
Not on our differences, but the separation within
No preparation is made, limited aid, minimum wage
Livin in a tenement cage where rent isn’t paid
Tragedy within a parade
The darkness overspread like permanent plauge
In the forgotten
In the memory you’ll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up
I’ve listened to this song over and over.
I only have one question.
What’s a man to do?
In other news I bought a book. I’m excited to get back in to reading!
