Be Who I Feel

lyrics

[Verse One]
There’s a whole lot of things that I
Think will make me sad,
so I blow (mara)‘juana
Hablo nada
To the girl I think is so bad.
Sitting like she pitted across from me on
On the subway, fuck, hey, maybe its an “L”
Elemental as the “…LMNO…” is a Well,
Elephant up in an elevator without cell
Service so I stand in the column (ie. train tunnel or chi column in spine)
Stuck goin’ up and down
Bounded for Harlem (ie. West Side of Chi or Uptown Manhattan)
On the Green line without shit to say,
‘till I switched up real quick, to “take the A,”
And it’s all going to the same place, no?
Paid the MTA-Ventra Card with a peso…
Anyhow: boarded the “A,” slow,
Turned side to side till I found me a place to
Sit down
Plopped in the seat,
Looked up and saw the same girl standing
And I said…(throat chakra blocked)…
But she didn’t understand me.
Entonce le dije, “Mamasita, I done seen ya before,
And I ain’t mean to be closed,
I wanna see ya linda sin all the clean clothes, uh huh.”

[Prechorus]
(Part 1)
Sound is only light
lit lulling you into dissolving
All the story lines
that stay weighing you down
(Part 2)
Manifest the holiest of holy lights now,
Aqua blue blam the mic like: Wow.
C doubled than bubbled over (E = MC2)
So I lay the light down.


[Chorus]
My throat’s bubbling
From an EMF field (Electromagnetic Field)
I just I just be in my field
Yeah, bruh, trust I be in my field.
See I’m waving, “Hi,”
To every wave that’s I, as I go on
And so I…
just be who I feel.


[Verse Two]
Siempre es mama
Quien me dice, “Siente pa’ca” (Verdad, true)
Siempre es mama
Quien me dice, “Siente pa’ca” (cállate la boca)
Recientemente actuando como
todo de mi gente empaca,
Or is it empacó?
What’s “packed” in the past tense?
Been a minute I been trapped in the Chi
So I’m “lackin” the accented syntax from the Heights,
I ain’t fluent no more!
Every moment that I’ve known has wanted to move it and go!
I’m a day old
And growing cuticle slow.
Used to be pursuing light
infinite loop i’d sail (infinite loop paseo)
‘till I realized there ain’t no difference between waves and my self!
Hell! Well! No fail,
I’ll go get her cell…
Think she’s beautiful why wouldn’t I say so?
All the same person with a different face no?
El elephante at the back of my throat
Dissolved into the waves I let captain my boat.
We only riding for a short time
So I swerve on lightening as thunder sing:


[Prechorus]
(Part 1)
Sound is only light
lit lulling you into dissolving
All the story lines
that stay weighing you down
(Part 2)
Manifest the holiest of holy lights now,
Aqua blue blam the mic like: Wow.
C doubled than bubbled over (E = MC2)
So I lay the light down.


[Chorus]
My throat’s bubbling
From an EMF field (Electromagnetic Field)
I just I just be in my field
Yeah, bruh, trust I be in my field.
See I’m waving, “Hi,”
To every wave that’s I, as I go on
And so I…
just be who I feel.

[Bridge]
Brain’s cellophane
Don’t hella change
When you famous.
But the cells you claim
Very well’ll change
‘Till you nameless,
You can’t stain this
Type of nothing.
Trust love enough to see it all spill!
Woah, now, this truth that you can’t hold down
This high and low bound
To verb to be not no noun (Reference: Melt Home – NYC Bowery Poetry Club)
To E not to be profound (E = MC2)
So I’m showing out, until it’s all gone.

[Outro]
(Part 1)
Sound is only light
lit lulling you into dissolving
All the story lines
that stay weighing you down
(Part 2)
Manifest the holiest of holy lights now,
Aqua blue blam the mic like: Wow.
C doubled than bubbled over (E = MC2)
So I lay the light down.
(Down Down)
