Few are amused by the dumbing down
I choose the underground
Thumbing down contracts fused by a number dial
Tower of Cards by Mr. J. Medeiros 6

The dumbing down of Hip Hop, musically and lyrically, is not impressive to some- for those people, there is the “underground”.

Not accepting contracts which focus only on the number of records sold, youtube views, twitter followers, facebook likes-

Not impressed with labels, magazines, fans, etc. who are only after the aesthetic of Hip Hop, not the actual music/meaning- beyond hype.

Passing through the sky
Reminding you to sleep
The world is full of guise
Victory defeat
Victory defeat
Victory defeat
Victory defeat
Old Man Perez by Mr. J. Medeiros 29

The love song reminds her there is more to life then the fear of it.

The world is full of things that seem one way but are really another.

With every victory of understanding there is a defeat of another.

Frightened by the moon
The silence of it all
It lightens up your room
The nightingale she calls
Old Man Perez by Mr. J. Medeiros 29

Here you finally get to see the vulnerability of her character- she is played up throughout the song as leaving him in pain with little concern, but she has her own human worries- which may differ from her self-professed existential existence.

She is afraid to be alone, the Moon symbolizes something to her about existence that scares her.

You’d have to question if the fear of such a thing lends itself to a conversation about life and purpose that she refuses to accept, hence why she grips to existentialist novels.

The silence of the universe, to not answer all questions- may drive people to believing there is no answer.

The moon still has a purpose though, even if it’s just to light her room and keep her guessing.

At this time the Nightingale calls, a bird known as a symbol for love in a song, a bird that sings throughout the night.

My home
My bone and marrow
I am alone
I am the only sparrow
Old Man Perez by Mr. J. Medeiros 29

Playing on the sparrow line again, the idea of being designed with the purpose of monogamy as proof for it’s importance- he finds regardless of that idea, he is still alone.

His home is his body.

I am just a taste
The face that you took and forgot
In a space full of books
Old Man Perez by Mr. J. Medeiros 29

He was just a quick idea, a small taste, a sample to be understood and then disregarded.

A face among many other faces, like books in a library- just something you pull out to see it’s cover, then put back with all the rest.

Seen as an object.
