On Fire (Song)

I wrote my verse and the chorus, and featured another local rapper named MC Koya.

/Verse - 1
(MedD) 

Ultra violence
The loud sounds of the sirens
A lonely mom that lost her son
Now tell her, who's her prized one

Corrupted dreams of a fiend
How fucked up a scene to be seen
That's what's up with these city streets
Now bust up the dream to relieve

Synthetic side effects
I'm convinced of the rise of it
Like forgetting the lies of it
Dice fell down and decided it

A higher order has rigged it
Our lives are sold without reason
Some kind of hidden agenda
Now rise up, up from your seats and

We'll begin to take this back
I will lend a hand with my rap
Will you just stand there way back
Or sit down with hands in your lap

Come on
Rise up, rise up
We can end this any day
But you're scared of what you'll lose
And you'll settle for this taste

An infinite distance
Persistent existence
Sentenced to lay, wait, and witness
As they wrong us, ask forgiveness

See a comet, say your wishes
Hope for longer, maybe get this
But you're nothing, we're disgusting
No discussion
Man, forget this.

/Chorus
(MedD)

Have the stars aligned?
Have the Gods all died?
I will cross the line
Setting life on fire

Spinning and spinning
We run in circles
Trying to walk a straight line 
City to city

Have the stars aligned?
Have the Gods all died?
I will cross the line
Setting life on fire

Spinning and spinning
We run in circles
Trying to walk a straight line 
City to city

/Verse - 2
(MC Koya)

I present a collab
That won't be a fad
Cause this fate
Put me on a better proper endeavor 

That I could measure the best of my ability
Like the two stars that we are, we collide
A black void is created in the system

Give a ray of hope
Peacefully listen to those who've left
And they still sound broke

Yet the devil has a compass
And I won't believe to them to be a man

I know the best of it in the system
Respect is given to the dope fiend
Who hadn't been a dope fiend for over 6 months

Pick a pipe and properly write
For we shall slay this trashed pop culture system
And then you can see that this hip-hop game
Will make us rap demi-gods

This b***h is gonna break like the system that it is.

/Chorus
(MedD)
Have the stars aligned?
Have the Gods all died?
I will cross the line
Setting life on fire

Spinning and spinning
We run in circles
Trying to walk a straight line 
City to city

Have the stars aligned?
Have the Gods all died?
I will cross the line
Setting life on fire

Spinning and spinning
We run in circles
Trying to walk a straight line 
City to city

Collab I did with another local rapper. I wrote my verse and the chorus, I know you need to like rap to like it but if you do then great!

I haven't got a thing to add to the superior and enthusiastic reviews already posted except to say that some of the nightmarish imagery appealed to the dark fantasy/horror enthusiast within me and that the entire thing "read well." Again, I liked it. Don't know much about rap, being an avid blues fan - but, surprisingly, I have heard bits here and there that I've enjoyed. These guys are absolute word masters and - when they're not busy calling on us to go shoot cops - well worth listening to, especially if you have any interest in writing and how words can work together. Great job!

Thanks you for the review, rap can be an art no doubt, all depends who's behind the lyrics I suppose

Exactly.
There were a lot of impressive lines- i think you have definitely found your niche- keep doing and creating great lyrics..personally i think lyrics are much harder to write than a poem. a lot of lyrics written by people these days are generic and it's hard to keep things fresh and new. you bring hope to those people that wanna make music and create original tracks, such as yourself. coming from someone that listens to everything (besides country)-- i think these lyrics could be interpreted in an acoustic performance as well, even on piano.

I like your verse better to be honest haha When it comes to rap, most of it is trash. But I enjoy Flobots and the like. I think this was very well done.
