In the midst of the hieroglyphs my fingertips start to write
Kendrick Lamar describes the feeling you get when you’re in a creative rush; words, images flows fast in your mind and can be somewhat confusing, incomprehensible to a 3rd party, similar to a lost language.
The word Hieroglyph is well-chosen as egyptian hieroglyphs were a formal writing system used by the ancient Egyptians that combined logographic and alphabetic elements.
This isn’t the first time Kendrick has mentioned writing his own hieroglyphics.
