lyrics

TIGHTEN UP

Both ankles chopped
Still I pop and lock
Dropkick this revolution rock
Both ankles chopped
Still I pop and lock
Dropkick this revolution rock

Both ankles chopped
Still I pop and lock
Dropkick this revolution rock
Twenty years ago this cat Skinny T and me
First seen each other on April 13th
Now its 2016, art reduced to a meme
Pandora’s box of planet rock, recruiting for my team
Fighting for this dream to free all humanity
Plans and strategies, philosophy, epistemology

Both ankles chopped
Still I pop and lock
Dropkick this revolution rock
Both ankles chopped
Still I pop and lock
Dropkick this revolution rock

BAsics in my back pocket, petty critics mock it
Fuck it and fuck em these rulers always wanna lock it
Computer digi-distributor take a cut and cops it
I been to hell and back, damn, we didn’t plan on stopping
If you ain’t ripping up the roots don’t call yourself radical
Science is compatible with art that is magical
Mega-metaphors open doors to the rationale
Outerfuckingnational

Both ankles chopped
Still I pop and lock
Dropkick this revolution rock
Both ankles chopped
Still I pop and lock
Dropkick this revolution rock

i write until the lights go out and keep going
when i’m up in the morning the blood is still flowing
the tingling sensation inside my chest
the agony and ecstasy compressed
the depths of loneliness when i’m depressed
the muddiness inside subjective analysis

Both ankles chopped
Still I pop and lock
Dropkick this revolution rock
Both ankles chopped
Still I pop and lock
Dropkick this revolution rock

and so i write, it never comes easy
and so i fight, please don’t deceive me
and when i’m right, don’t believe the hype
believe me!
TIGHTEN UP!
