lyrics

I’m making noise like a lawnmower
spit ‘til the dam(n) flood,
maybe call Noah
write ‘til I drop dead
‘til I roll over
roll over Beethoven
it's a tall order
but I got Dutch in my veins
so maybe I can do it
I munch through the pain ‘til it tastes good, chew it
like Chewbacca chewing a shoe sucker
leather, no tougher than this
but my teeth glide through it like butter
melting on a hot day
Adam made out of the clay
so that he would play
music and pray
to the glory of God
tell the story of God
pop music, a rod
to point the way for the mob
who are lost on the atlas
mapless, no tactics
these little rats is
cogs in the ratchet
am I no different?
wasting my sibilance?
Lord help me make that better music of deliverance
Lawnmower.


no millions to my name
no minions to my aid
the mission stays the same
to decorate the page
commemorate the rage
from the years that I slaved
for nothing, so it seems
will I ever get paid?
for all the art that I create
sufficient for the time it takes
religiously I allocate
hope when it's in short supply
to dreaming of the day I rise
to work without the hows or whys
no need for any alibis
no shame remains in giving time
it’s all I have to give
in giving it to this, I live
the genie knows my only wish
is to breakout free from all this ish
breakthrough! Lord I pray right now
I pray for me and all crowd
Lord knows I love the crowd
everybody move your spirit as you sing it loud
let the heavens open, look up as you’re kneeling down
and maybe you can see it with him, peeping through the clouds
either way, I'll see you around
Lawnmower.
