Stepping Again

Fresh off my inspiring trip to New York City I had to drop this tune. It is going to be on PLTFRM SE7EN [SIDE B]

lyrics

My spirit smiles through the pain
I pause and do my two step in the rain
in the furnace I step on the flames
I got cold feet but I'm stepping again

It is written life and death are in the power of the tongue
So I exercise power when I speak over these drums
Leak over these drums
I'm full to the brim
therefore I'm spilling
words so full of feeling,
this expression so fulfilling
Like Dawn right now I'm cracking and I've got your toes tapping,
This universal language
has got your fingers snapping
And this spoken word is bringing light like genesis
You need it like plants do in photosynthesis
I'm scientific with it
surgical with the lyrics
call this open heart surgery
with a few stitches
Leave you in stitches
when i crack jokes
are you kidding?
They say it's the best medicine
you better listen
And get your daily dosage notice I'm not a novice
My motive and focus so strong they can't be broken
some with a stiff upper lip
are turning up their noses
I've got a tidal tendency
to split waves like Moses

My spirit smiles through the pain
I pause and do my two step in the rain
in the furnace I step on the flames
I got cold feet but I'm stepping again

I hit rock bottom
I bounced back a new breed I'm not forgotten
though sometimes my motives are rotten
and some naysayers just keep mocking
some think I'm a joker but this is not gotham
though this dark knight rises so often
I once nailed my hopes and dreams in a coffin
only to find them 3 days later huffin' and puffin'

I do this for the love of the art form
even though my heart's torn
On my sleeve is where my heart's worn, I March on
While some dumb choose to ape real thugs
May the warmth of June melt cold hearts and touch
Souls and insert passion hotter than July
I'm like an August visitor the way I arrive
A September baby born royal free at belsize
On the 13th day I arrived with battle cries
This familiar stranger is surely a surprise
suddenly I rise, without a disguise, unrecognised
No need to hide, my mask is off, I'm blasting off
This ain't rocking science my burdens I'm casting off
I was an outcast that was cast away
But that was yesterday I'm feeling blessed today
Don't wait for tomorrow, say yes today
And from yesterday you can make a get away

My spirit smiles through the pain
I pause and do my two step in the rain
in the furnace I step on the flames
I got cold feet but I'm stepping again
