lyrics

I’m feeling that I haven’t been productive enough,
like I got so much
extraneous stuff on my mind
that I can’t seem to find the time
to do something so simple
as to make lines rhyme.
I do my best not to hate,
not to fight,
not to get jealous or spite
cause I’ve discovered that life’s greatest crime just might be
failing to create, innovate, communicate one’s ideas
in a given time and state of mind.
So I’m stating mine immediately so I could make my qi flow
with such immediacy
to be the MC that spits
the positivity
which in my soul I feel
though I’ve never seen a danger clearer than that posed
by the man I fear above all others
smothering me with his presence
I’ma steal the best of his essence, teach the rest of him a lesson.
When I catch him staring at me
in the mirror,
I’ma get a confession.

When you’re locked in a bad spot,
can’t stop, don’t stop, won’t stop
give it everything you got.
When we’re locked in a bad spot, Blockstop can’t stop, don’t stop,
we give it everything we got.

Living not to give in
but this shot needs taking
to create things but somehow
I must be mistaken,
willing to learn
from every mistake I’m making,
but it’s harder in reality
than people make it out to be.
Undoubtedly, we evolve
and problems get solved.
Still others emerge,
leave us standing on the verge
of all things we’ve ever known, and the place we call home.

And now I’m locked in a bad spot feeling all alone.
I guess I’m not that versatile,
it’s not personal, no.
I don’t wanna name names
but in the end,
I’ve got but yours truly to blame
but what you gonna do
when the answers
right in front of you?
I know one or two
who don’t know what to do.
In my head,
most of what I had in mind
was hazy
In bed, couldn’t get up,
was too lazy
It’s tough to live like that though, you go crazy
So after months of doin’ little
I said ‘‘maybe
it’s time to write a rhyme
and quit being a baby,
quit chasing ladies,
let my muse invade me
persuade me that I got stuff
to say daily, like the show,
but with a flow to amaze thee.

When you’re locked in a bad spot,
can’t stop, don’t stop, won’t stop
give it everything you got.
When we’re locked in a bad spot, Blockstop can’t stop, don’t stop,
we give it everything we got.

Get outta the funk
and find the feeling.
Search for it,
don’t get caught up in caution.
Go for it
not just through the motions.
I used to have it all,
now not even a notion.
