So I stare into this paper instead of sitting at a cubicle

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis – Vipassana Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Macklemore has chosen a life of expression and art in the form of music, as opposed to a desk job in a cubicle in some office in which he’d just be doing boring things all day long. He writes music instead of getting a clock punching job.

He references this again on “10,000 Hours.”

Generation of kids choosing love over a desk
