about

First joint off the upcoming Ep, Act 3 Scene 216. Lyrics by Paulie Rhyme. Beats by King Rem. Hourglass is not only inspired by time but also by the effects that time spent can have on those around. That in some ways time can heal wounds and other ways time can expand them. And when they are expanded, they can be passed on. Hurt people can hurt people. We have to reflect and release or we will continue to carry that burden and pass it on.

lyrics

From the moment he was kicked out the fallopian,
mom choking him with second hand,
Dad in and out the fam,
But on them Sundays,
dress it up for one day,
Then the rest of the week,
speeding dial the police,
Never knew who started it,
He caught beatings as a part of it,
The reasons unclear, every season full of tears,
Can harden any soul,
the pressure filled him with holes,
All those kicks to the ribs, his mind started to slip,
Was it her or was it him?
He really tried to forget,
but they just kept on hitting,
The blows was never ending,
First he started pretending that he was the one charge,
He would distribute the beatings,
but would spoil them weekend,
Toys looking raggedy,
No childhood more a tragedy,
Stuck on repeat, the kind that cries you to sleep,

She really tried to break him out of them ways,
But she didn’t understand that he was stuck in a rage,
And life is more than a game,
And some will never last,
Like sands running out the hourglass...

Just nightmares and cold stares followed him,
Love seemed like an illusion,
Confusion, being persecuted
by your own blood,
The people you suppose to look up,
Act like they don’t get a fuck if you live or die,
First he asked why? But seen the pain in they eyes,
Knew they don’t know why, they own life is full of lies,
Empty promises and hearts,
Same cycles of abuse,
So when he finally got loose,
He only had one truth, that he couldn’t undo,
Then he infected his seed, then she calling the police,
How did this happen to me?
He had to get on his knees and take some looks in mirror,
Take a search in his spirit and pull all that poison out,
To learn to unlearn and it might take years,
Them mental chains hard to break,
But you gotta face your fears….

She really tried to break him out of them ways,
But she didn’t understand that he was stuck in a rage,
And life is more than a game,
And some will never last,
Like sands running out the hourglass...

Think twice
The lights
If it’s right
Then fight...
