A Song Titled 'Swim'

Below are the lyrics to a song titled Swim. The sounds are a combination of past and present work written by the music group PTC. The beat was produced by Arkatype and the guitar rhythm in the ending was written by me and Moko. In my mind, I wrote these lyrics to reflect a world in flames, engulfed with chaos and disease. A fragmented point of view at the time yet, expressing the culture of poverty. Little did I know after writing the lyrics, the world as I knew it would change dramatically revealing the current global pandemic. Regardless of the circumstances and foresightful lyrics, my message remains the same. I want to remind all of my listeners that no matter what happens in this life... you got this. You were born to survive all of your struggles and one day (if you have not already) you will acknowledge your capabilities through growth; as you swim to survive.

Chorus

You don’t gotta stir the pot when you're swimming in s**t a lot

You don’t gotta stir the pot when you're swimming in s**t a lot

You don’t gotta stir the pot when you're swimming in s**t a lot

and you don’t gotta stir the pot when you're swimming in s**t alive

Verse

You want some gravy on your grits?

I’ll spit on your pancake

You’ll need more than caffeine just to keep you awake

To the dark winds we go

Never let you dreams go

Stay swole follow your own visions like a sink-hole

Swallow the war, swallow the peace both

Why do we do run from cops if we are equal?

It’s been one hell uv a story the plot for the people

Escape from Salems lot we gotta break through

The vapors of the smokey cave, Ezekiel

We pop the wheelies on the sacred side the sea coast

I like the rhythm of the Arkatype we stay afloat

We s**t venom on the skillet like a porcupine

You not a real emcee you’re a prototype

Another sucker emcee with your third eye-blind

What you going teach me when I already shine?

How can you feed off the fans and deteriorate minds?

So much disease in the land but still Hip-Hop shines

Sometimes the right path is a zig-zag line

Move slow, think fast and you’ll be just fine

Your spirit is connected by Earthly leylines

Planetary quantum physhics, all the stars in flight

Get ready to make a move between the days and nights

Cause if the Sun don’t fall, the sky won’t rise

and death can take your life like it’s Fee Fie Foe Fum!


Chorus You don’t gotta stir the pot when you're swimming in s**t a lot

You don’t gotta stir the pot when you're swimming in s**t a lot

You don’t gotta stir the pot when you're swimming in s**t a lot

and you don’t gotta stir the pot when you're swimming in s**t alive

Which way would you go?

How many choices do you actually have?

Can you grasp it?

Can you take control?

I’ll leave with one message…

You f*****g got this

You got this

You got this

Now take control

END
