So I listened to this song and...oh my God. It's deep. I'll warn you it's pretty dark, but if you listen to it with the lyrics it's enough to make your spine tingle.



Lyrics:
Spoiler:
Things in life ain’t always quite what they seem, there’s more than
one given angle to any one given scene. So bear that in mind next
time you try to intervene on any one given angle, on any one given
scene.

MARK:
My name is mark & I go to Uni & college
Don’t socialise that much I just revise & build knowledge.
At times I find that I become a virtual recluse
I let my belt of interaction hang decisively loose
But I came here to learn and that’s the life that I choose
So if people think that I’m a geek they can bring their abuse
See a lot of people think that I’m boring and say
That maybe I’m a weirdo or maybe I’m gay
But I don’t care coz when I get a good job & good pay
I’ll get a house for just my brother and me some day
And that’s the reason I’m here, just to build for the future
And if it means better grades yeah I’d even sleep with my tutor
Things in life ain’t always quite what they seem, there’s more than
one given angle to any one given scene. So bear that in mind next
time you try to intervene on any one given angle, on any one given
scene.

PAUL:
My name is Paul & I’ve been a guard for 6 months
The shop that I guard is better than most dumps
That’s why I like it here & my boss he’s a pro
He’s taught me tricks of the trade that other guards wouldn’t know
I’ve learnt that in this game, there’s some rules, you gotta bend
And not to forget these thieving pricks ain’t your friend
And that appearance is key coz there’s a message to send
And above all of that it’s your fellow guards you defend.
The other day my boss was stabbed by some lowlife psycho
He’s in hospital now so every night that’s where I go
He’s on the brink right now but he’s showing no fear though
Coz if he dies there in bed he knows he’s dying a hero.
Things in life ain’t always quite what they seem, there’s more than
one given angle to any one given scene. So bear that in mind next
time you try to intervene on any one given angle, on any one given
scene.

KEITH:
My name is Keith and I ain’t so much a racist
But if one reached out a hand I’d decline their embraces
I work security in a shop in charge of 5 other guards
And I’ve got all of their respect coz I run this shit hard
I nicked one thief today; he didn’t show enough respect & attention
So I grabbed him by the neck, see that’s my form of redemption
I do no real harm; just make sure that it hurts
It ain’t going by the book but believe me it works
Then I sent him on his way, that little shit knows the score now
Instil a little bit of fear. He won’t darken my door now
And that’s what I do. Stop these kids from decline.
Do what their parents wouldn’t do, put down some boundaries &
lines.
Things in life ain’t always quite what they seem, there’s more than
one given angle to any one given scene. So bear that in mind next
time you try to intervene on any one given angle, on any one given
scene.

BILLY:
My name is Billy & I’ve been beaten since I was 3
Mum died when I was born and dad takes it out on me
He ain’t a bad man. He just gets drunk & feels alone
I tend to go for a walk, hope he’s asleep when I get home.
I don’t like to talk about it much coz like I said it ain’t his fault
It only happens when he’s drunk as a last resort
I wanted to get him a gift to show my support
But I had no money so I stole & I guess I got caught.
At times like that I kinda switch of my mind
Stare blankly into space and let what happens unwind
That seemed to anger this guard, he put his hands round my neck
He said it's time for me to learn some manners & respect
It hurt, but I’ve had worse before
But it made me realise life was just a series of wars
I went straight home that day and locked the bathroom door
Took a blade to both wrists, they won't hurt me no more.
Things in life ain’t always quite what they seem, there’s more than
one given angle to any one given scene. So bear that in mind
next time you try to intervene on any one given angle, on any one
given scene.

MARK:
My name is Mark and today I was told my brother was dead
I returned from Uni and burst into tears on his bed
Under his pillow, I found his suicide note & I read
What had happened that day & what had F%@# up his head.
The anger I felt right then there no words to express
I filled up with so much rage there was no way to digest
I grabbed a knife & walked to town, it was time to regress
Back to an eye for and eye, last breath for last breath
I went straight up to the counter & said I’d like to speak
To the guard that nicked my brother on Tuesday of this week
As the girl went through a door & disappeared out of sight
I put my hand in my pocket and I gripped the knife tight
This was it, as she pointed me out to the guard
My hand began to shake as held the knife so hard
Then as he approached me there was nothing to say
I stabbed that F%@# eight times before they could take me away.
Things in life ain’t always quite what they seem, there’s more than
one given angle to any one given scene. So bear that in mind
next time you try to intervene on any one given angle, on any one
given scene.

And then a song about nothing (and the Periodic Table!):


Lyrics:
Spoiler:
They say possession is nine tenths
Well we possess mind vents
To filter the rhymes sent
From deep down inside
Hence the precision and timing
Essential to rhyming
If you wish to pierce the cerebral lining
You see image is nothing
Imagination is everything
Is there anything you wear that's more important than what you think?
I think not... as I bump Aesop
Cruise to Herbie Hancock and F%@#' rock out with Snot
You wanna look for me?
I'll be in charity shops
I ain't buyin' my shirts
I'm buyin' my damn pants and socks
*****-what?
This shit's inside of me
I ain't riding the beat
It's the beat that is riding me

I ain't an alcoholic
I just drink a lot
And maybe I'm a genius
Or maybe I just think a lot
My intellect in retrospect compared to some...

"Ay yo Pip you know that second verse was all straight garbage?"
What you talkin' 'bout man it's not that bad... it was alright.
"I know what I'm talkin' 'bout. Give these F%@# something new!"
What am I supposed to do? What... ?
"Come on man"
Alright man, how about this?
I remember hearing Mos Def rhyme the alphabet
I just sat there in silence
As a sign of respect
I knew what I had to do
And that's what happened next
I rhymed the periodic table to stay one step ahead
See in the periodic table hydrogen is number one
'Cause hydrogen is what puts the shine in the sun
Through nuclear fusion and when it's done
It leaves element number two
Helium... helium is the second lightest gas that there is
So we use it in balloons we give to little kids
Then there's lithium often used to treat mental problems
Beryllium don't conduct electric currents, it stops them
Boron can be used to make things harden
And that smoke that's coming out of your exhaust, carbon
Carbon is arguably the most important element
And nitrogen in the air is almost eighty percent
The rest of the air is mainly oxygen
And fluorine is the lightest of the halogens
OK that's enough teaching
I ain't trying to bore ya
I'm just trying to be a positive role model for ya
'Cause in my town I'm blessed with many role models
So many that sometimes the mind just boggles
See KRS is my teacher
Slick Rick's my ruler
Chuck D's my preach'
I'm just a preschooler
I've still got growing to do though
I ain't trying to fool ya
But compared to all the other kids in my class
I'm much taller
I'm much taller
