YSI – 2014 – Rap Un-noted

Rap for Young Social Innovators

rap

This page is about a rap that was performed by myself  Taran Mohandas Stakem and my friend backing me up with his guitar Keith Kenny. These lyrics that I put a lot of time into writing would relate a lot to anyone that was stuck out on the streets or kicked out of the house at some point and I like to think that it speaks about some issues that a person in this situation would deal with. A main point in lines in these verses are saying ‘Cause yeah I’m fine is the most common lie that you ever happen to be told’ which as statement is more than likely true.

VERSE1 – Un-noted.

You see me while I bide my time with this empty change cup
You may think I’m and more than likely washed up
While I sit stall around with nothing to do
No choice but to blame myself like any other broken fool
As hanging in the rain
Really has no gain
Gotta take a close look
Hoping I’m not just a stain
PREHOOK1
Sleeping in the cold
Long, long nights getting old
Cause yeah I’m fines the most common lie
That’s ever happened to be told
HOOK1
While they waste and they waste and they waste away
Most people walking by ain’t got nothin’ to say
Seriously sleeping on the streets ain’t fun
Even with a bottle of jack or bottle of rum
VERSE2
Smoking roll ups and watching as the clouds turns to grey
The only innconvienience is that it happens everyday
And if a god exists man wonder what he’s tryna play
Even then thinking when he’ll think of something to say

PREHOOK 2
Tryna sleep in the cold
Tryna no from grey to be gold
Cause yeah I’m fine is the most common lie
That’s ever happened to be told
HOOK2
While they waste and they waste, while they waste away
As most people walking by ain’t got nothin’ to say
Seriously sleeping on the streets ain’t fun
Even with a bottle of jack daniels or bottle of rum
BRIDGE
A great man said its true that white rappers make it faster if they talk like stars
Try and tell the guy with 2 kids, a debt and his head on mars
He’s already fell, no point to rebel,
Time to go through your nicest things
And pick which ones you gotta sell
HOOK3
While they waste and they waste, while they waste away
As most people walking by ain’t got nothin’ to say
Seriously sleeping on the streets ain’t fun
Even with a bottle of jack daniels or bottle of rum
ENDSONG
Cause yeah I’m fine is the most common lie
That’s ever happened to be told
