The Process 04:00
Verse 1 - The process stays evolving, school of life enrolled in, find your way of coping, some stay closed i'm open, some make foes they're broken, some days show i'm hoping the next doors open, evoking emotions, revolving in circular motions bout to cause some commotion, grounds being broken strands being woven, never stranded or stuck on my own thing and i'll keep going till you know this. Jumping hurdles out of boxes, spilt milk curdles count your losses spouting verbal diagnostics, beats so cold i'm frostbit what's the dose? i've lost it Not been saving for deposits cos i know what the cost is, all to blame fall from grace, forests getting lost shit, awkward game impossible to quit now it's all the same, simple difference is what they all say has changed and of course the stats are to blame. Hook - Process stays evolving gotta nurture it to grow it, process making progress work is getting noticed, don't remember how i wrote it gotta nurture it to grow it, gotta nurture it to grow it. Verse 2 - My best and my worst days are written in a poem it's a blessed curse it was never bout the net worth humans like to network dance until our necks hurt wake up have to get to work work until blood vessels burst, burning fuel our vessel churns heard we're all repressed on earth brandable effects in turn, vandalistic settlers build banks that kill the rest of us, What's your version of events? What do you think is coming next? Much respect or death threats? Much respect to Dead Prez, he said it how he meant yes give credit don't expect less, the best guess, keep it moving taking less steps, making moves on to the next test, seeing clearly like I see you in your best dress, yeah I know I gotta stress less. Hook - Process stays evolving gotta nurture it to grow it, process making progress work is getting noticed, don't remember how i wrote it gotta nurture it to grow it, gotta nurture it to grow it. Verse 3 - Come and see the sun set, leave a ton of shit un said, wonder what will come next, never listen to the dumb threats the funds left em glum nearing un dead, now i'm sitting thinking back, but it seems it hasn't come yet, reminiscing on the sunsets, remember some days evenings never ending but some said, that to reach what was up next you had to see that beneath it is a myth like the loch ness, this a craft and not a contest, gotta put it all in context cos they don't care about your content or what's best, they just care about the crowd chatting nonsense, when they ask no responses i'm on this, keep your beef on the streets i don't want it and that's honest. Hook - Process stays evolving gotta nurture it to grow it, process making progress work is getting noticed, don't remember how i wrote it gotta nurture it to grow it, gotta nurture it to grow it.

I woke up from a dream to see that nothing's what it seems I stumble to my feet and roll a blunt of skunky weed, I slump back to my seat I put that beat back on repeat the fridge defrosts and now there's nothing nothing left to eat, stomachs tryna speak, the music puts me back at ease I deal with it fanatically can't cope with it financially, like a cold but no ones catching me, take my past and throw it back at me, romantically i frantically fumble with my antics see, no sleight of hand my hands are seen, nothing here can damage me, don't chat about it angrily in fact i'm chatting passively the thought of life emasses me, the schools got us practicing for factories don't talk about monsanto till you're seeing damaged seeds, we won't even let the planet breathe it's actually fucking mad to me, where we're headed didn't have to be, I guess we'll have to hang and see, maybe hang it in a gallery this panoramic vision got me burning calories casually, can you see the tangents weave, intangibly erratically we're living so distracted, mirror image gets refracted the tax from your wage gets subtracted to pay for their rage driven antics, they say give it practice, get an ego let it grow and then adapt it, we're getting sold a different picture and it's average. (Boudicca) Hook - When you talk it's the sweetest sound while we walk through places in this town Go tell em what you told yourself, What you told yourself. Verse 2 - Digging through the crates and I sit with my mistakes glue the pieces back together then I sit and watch em break and I've always been indifferent from the change and i'm never on a mission for the fame just tryna paint a picture with my brain so you can sit there in the rain and see that someone feels the same and all of us got bills to pay, the more we trust the less it takes go towards the love don't hesitate stay living in the present day make your moves against the grain say your truth and let it stay believe you're only steps away never let it tempt your fate, stays rising like the centigrade when summer time eventually came we undermine what underlays, discussing we anticipate, no discussion come participate art is art but this is art that can't disintegrate come and integrate , might feel different on a different day nothing's ever simple mate seeing what they implicate never give away what you make and i've made the same mistakes take the time to take a break treat your trade like a trade like a trade this ain't nothing to evade kids are acting twice their age doesn't cost a thing to crack a smile but hey, we're gonna have to find a way it doesn't we'll ride away to sunsets miles away but we're gonna have to find a way i was feeling kinda blind today fail at what i try to say, fragile like a china plate changing once my mind is made might take us out like tidal waves, (Boudicca) Hook - When you talk it's the sweetest sound while we walk through places in this town Go tell em what you told yourself, What you told yourself.

Verse 1 (Oxomo) - Fuck mumble rappers, where's the humble rappers at? Come in the game without an attack plan, never been lazy can't hack the slack, backtracking, no one really built for shelf stacking it's all about the balance of self, not what you're backing, the challenge of establishing wealth is you've gotta have it see the clock tick backwards causing havoc never have enough time for making sure this shit is done right, done tryin', look him in the eyes know he can't decide which way to go quick left or right best think quick or you'll get left behind, now he's hiding equipped up in his best disguise running faster from his peddled lies made it past the point of no return spending money no returns, so disturbed, I hope he knows to know his worth learn to read between the words something deep beneath this earth something of each of us can learn. Hook (Boudicca) - Verse 2 (Dereck D.A.C)
