Mahbod Moghadam – Through The Brain Lyrics
Yo Dan, they can't stop me from blogging huh?
Can they huh?
Oh man. I feel – I'm writing in my own blood mayne!
Feelin such great weight in my heart, weight in my soul
Feelin such great moment
And I want to get into –
Verily, if a kernel of corn falls in the soil..
Nah, you know what.. I don't want to get into that
Let me just tell you the story
I gulp a probiotic and sip down some chia seeds
Can't take the Vyv, the yayo or smoke the weed
Seizure meds make me sweat like my enemies
La nausee stirs up, can't check my newsfeed
How to console Ilan when he hypnotize
Saddened in spite of his muscular thighs!
And can't imagine how Tom feel
When he gotta learn Rubymotion, keep the site running trill
Been with these boys now for 4 1/2 years
They always got my back, smiling even when I act weird
I ain't tryna lie
Intellectually violent guy
I write in my own blood until my quill runs dry!
In the same hospital where Castro died
I feel a massive lack of wifi, a hole in my eye
Story in NYMag, I ain't tryna be scandalous
Promise that I ain't a wuss
Tentacles like octopus
I'm so sorry for comparing myself to prophets in the "Unchain Me" freestyle
I'm but the unofficial sperm! But a worm!
All we want is for the children to get the knowledge.. we already rich!
All we want them is to read closely - and mostly - to engage deeply with poetry
Let me tell you the rest of the story...
What if a Persian from LA broke away from the fray
I'm only listening to indie rock now
But hip-hop still sings its siren song
Music in a thong
Fertile as a plowmen with a manual plow
So we annotate it like the Talmud
And the Talmud too
Adam Kadmon at his apex
Christian Muslim and Jew - I've faith in all three
If you'll pardon the crowd
If you knew how Sam Biddle henceforth
Made me feel intense
Thank GOD his poison tongue builds immune defense
Thank GOD Genius Media is so immense
With or without me, it lasts til 2323
I must have an Angel
Cause look how death missed my ass
Left but a wound
And my reawoken eyes can look past
I was cleansed by undertaking a 4-day fast
My first squash soup had the savor of grassy foie-grass
And I'll never grow up
I'm like Saint Francis
Civilization something that I won't hardly miss
Please read my poem for my stillborn twin sis
Butt-naked, talking to animals and drinking my piss
Tryna keep.. everything alkaline
Through the brain, through the brine
Promise that we gonna shine
Yo.. man. Can you believe, can you imagine Nas the Don getting a picture of you with your scar with staples in your head? That's Nas the Don! I remember meeting Destiny backstage. She's beautiful, she's studying at the LA fashion institute. It's the greatest one, Olu's son. All I wish in my heart is that 2Pac had a twitter! I feel it in my soul, he's part of my mindscape. And all I can say is FEEL ME!
