Liner Notes: 

Hoping to throw a little shade on the current culture. Maybe I did not succeed. Smile Work in progress. Experimental write. Wrote to a hip hop beat, rapish V (if I could rap), and music chorus, in my head, but I prefer EDM, of the two. Whateva! Open to collab, if it happens to grab anyone. Thanks for the look, happy writing and recording to all.

Lyrics: 

In the Shizzle

Love is a contest
Bottled and sold
Comes with a Coke
And a bag of fool's gold
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle  
A hand job hustle 
On a giant screen 
A pancake gangsta'
With a hash brown beat
In the shizzle
In the shizzle 
A Red Light teaser
In a jaded glass
Stone cold bitches
Shaking that ass
In the shizzle
In the shizzle
In the shizzle 

Have you still a heart?
You channel changer
You alien stranger
To your human race 
Blank look on your face -- Can you feel it?
You, you, you, you
You shape shifter 
You soul starved thrifter
Cashed out and cut rate
In the shizzle
In the shizzle
In the shizzle

Pride is a fashion 
You pound your chest
Believe the hype 
Claim you're the best
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle  
A lip sync diva
With a microphone
Under colored light  
The beat goes on  
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle  
Pole dance heros
Counterfeit stars
Porno princess
Eating caviar
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle 

Have you still a heart?
You channel changer
You alien stranger
To your human race 
Blank look on your face -- Can you feel it?
You, you, you, you
You shape shifter 
You soul starved thrifter
Cashed out and cut rate
In the shizzle
In the shizzle
In the shizzle

Life's an illusion
In the carnivore's cage
Never sure what's real
It's a graceless age
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle 
Babes in bikinis 
Beer on the beach
A pill for the pain
It's all within reach
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle  
Lock the door
Now you're on a roll
Sticky fingers
On the mouse control
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle 

Have you still a heart?
You channel changer
You alien stranger
To your human race 
Blank look on your face -- Can you feel it?
You, you, you, you
You shape shifter 
You soul starved thrifter
Cashed out and cut rate
In the shizzle
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle 
In the shizzle

Really cool, Ed! This needs some music.
It's a perpendicular masterpiece, too!

This took me right back to Grand Theft Auto 5. I have no idea what shizzle means. Biggrin

This is poetry. It flows so well and I adore the way you carve these liquid lines out of words that just flow into my brain as I read. How many examples you find to highlight the topic and make it feel the way I honestly think it is... fake hubris of a scared generation. My buddy once wanted to take my to a strip club. I just couldn't go. It makes me feel sick to my stomach how fake and focused on all the superficial it is... no matter how much I like the female form. I'll never understand the culture, and that's for the better.

I appreciate that you tried. Biggrin

Don't think I could ever write like this and it sings off the page! Great song!
