lyrics

Watch how I lay this text
display the great design
was gonna take my time but now the baby’s crying

I need relief so I can pee this stream of consciousness
I hope for you
may all your lucid dream be free of consequence
while every working system has it’s kinks
metaphors define the way we think
and all our thoughts are put in little packages
and words are just a conduit we send them through
but often times our thoughts don’t fit in packages
'cause words mean different things depending who you’re talking to
I might be losing sleep
that’s tight, tight like how I squeeze her
raising daughters if all goes right
one day she ain’t gon’ need you
her life is not a soap opera Mama
but it seems like all my children keep my daytime
filled with drama
and my night times are all finite
never long as I’d hoped
and I learned to swallow my pride
but it tastes like vomit in my throat
while I got audiences applauding the quotes
Whatever whatever
rising like the water level
until the siege happens
why these people keep asking
beliefs are realer than those that speak but ones that seek action
prematurely way before they thought it through
become and obstacle
for any movement when its really time to move
I got a lot of things to learn but even more things to forget
got more people influencing me but less that I’m gon’ let
‘cause I know
I know a lot of know-it-alls
I know a lot
I know enough to know
that i don’t know
nothing
at
all

about

Chance York Minneapolis, Minnesota

Minneapolis-born Chance York has made himself brand new again. Known for his work with bands, Crunchy Kids, and the new and acclaimed, Eric Mayson’s Detail, Chance is fresh, a stylish indie-rap head, at home on dingy basement stages and in classy auditoriums. His music has a universal appeal, a merger of depth and optimism, raw lyricism and style.
