about

This piece is dedicated to the homeless and the oppressed brothers and sisters out there. It was inspired after I saw some teenagers laughing at a homeless person who was shitting on himself in a subway platform, and it infuriated me. This piece is to those kids and anyone who judges a person for their condition; considering "the system" is a deep construct that not everyone can get out of, because of opportunity, racism, inequality, and a lack of resources.

lyrics

Brothers & Sisters of the Revolution
What else are we here for…
If not, to annihilate the riches of the world
Commemorate our people…

Withhold the system…
That lays itself down to rest,
Content with the fact it stole dreams
And programmed our minds to live mechanically…

Robotic waveforms clutter my membrane
Each day I decide to parallel my life with…
The system

That is why I must live in the universal law
That I lay at my bedside next to me at night
And the homeless people on the street are our distant faces
When we were broken…
Kneeled with their head in their hands…
It is our ancestors wrapped up,
Handcuffed in slavery…

We are all connected
Undulating the backbone of our universe…
Cradling the haunting whispers of history,
Which made us who we are today…

So we must spew sunsets into the history banks…
To claw out our cluttered minds…

Rearrange the system,
which binds our necks…
Causing a collection of heating pads,
which lay uselessly on our sofas…

That dollar delicately dangling in your pocket
Has no value in useless hands
When useful hearts go ignored

We are a part of them
They are a part of us

Rearrange the system…
Learn to fight…

Let’s wrap our heads together...
Weave the braids and locks of time between our minds
Climb and swing from ivy vines to transfer the times…

We are too hesitant to change
That which has grounded our minds…
We are merely molded in the city concrete…

Cuz they stripped the trees from their soil...
Moved the mountains from our palms,
And earthquaked the seas into a dried up ocean;
Land closed off by park rangers

So now we cannot swim against the stream…
That’s why they kept the slaves away from the water
To keep them from swimming…
To keep them from fighting…
And they wana keep us from fighting…

So we are wading in the water…
Waiting for the waves to wash change upon our heads and
Teach us to rise above the muddy waters of our time..
Some of us are caught in the undertow

So let’s learn to
Swim past the conformist current
Drowning our bodies’ organs
So that we are gasping for our last breath…

We are brothers and sisters of the revolution…
We cannot wait for the waves to wash this ashore…

We must non conform to the current and push past all this…
Sweep stardust futures into our newborn babies’ pupils
And spoonfeed sprinkles of enlightenment
into the government’s mouths
And to each other…

What else are we here for…
If not, to annihilate the riches of the world…
Commemorate…
Withhold the system…
Learn to swim
And fight…
