Open Up
Fruits: The Mixtape (2012)

lyrics

Exponential increments, we elevate the vision
With precision and the rhythm “instrumental” to the lyricist
Energy is filling- from the cellar to the ceiling
Turn you into Hellen Keller ‘cause the way that you be “feeling it”
Illustrate love with every color and deliver it
To every single kingdom and every one of its villages
I’m in the business of appraising your significance:
Administer provisions for the sick and the afflicted
Rhyming for your wisdom; time is in submission:
It’s a critical decision for a Spiritual revision
Unity in faith is the basis of the mission
We be bridging up the distance of the spiritual divisions
Sin is like cancer; put it in remission
And cutting the cell division, ain’t bluffing you come and get it
I’m... like a chemist and combining basic elements
Of faith, hope, love for every neighbor, every relative
Every tongue, every knee; waiting on the heavens
But until the day comes: art makes it all relevant
Check... I got a job to do... I demolish obstacles that block ya view
Like a doctor, now open your opticals- conquer “impossible” with the God in you
And there’s one in two ways: but you gotta choose
So you better “pick ‘up” ‘cause He’s “calling you.”

The lesson is to lessen the complexity indefinitely
Insecurity is steady wrecking me in seconds for me
Hollywood is telling me I ain’t nothing special..
Especially the fact that I’m not physically pleasant
See my stature lacking density, I need an acne remedy,
And if I want to rap, I need tats and a felony
--Every blog post either makes me feel cuddly
Or points out the fact that I’m just real ugly
I want to tell you this love is superficial
-But I’m hypocritical ‘cause even I’m feeling miserable
...But what would happen if we loved each other?
What would happen if we dropped it and hugged each other?
Despite our dirt... and all our hurts
What would happen if we knew the truth about our worth?
Is it misunderstanding, or grand deception?
Let’s start understanding and stand, my brethren

about

nak Chino, California

A Filipino-American lyricist, rapper, poet and chronically depressed, irrational over-thinker, teacher, graduate student, and registered nurse from Chino, California. This is shy rap. Repentance despite feeling forsaken. Lyricism at its lowest. Emotional music for introverted people. Sounds for the hopeful. Living proof that God could use losers. Music best enjoyed alone. ... more
