Emotionless the city lies Cruel it is, it clouds my eyes The dull the dark shades on my day I live inside this place
Locked up inside my metal cage Always tense and filled with rage Above the concrete fields below With you i wanna go, wanna go
Music is my sanctuary Music is my blanket
I see only what i wanna see I'll be only what i wanna be My blanket covers me, yes
"Yeah, check it Now as a yout man I was body poppin' breakin' on the lino Traded in my lino for a pad and a biro Used to stand in line just so as I could sign my giro But now my ends meet in the best way that I know (Hat, snare, kick) and the beats that go boom See the music I consume to escape the doom and gloom All the beats and melodies keep realities at bay But what happens when the records done and starts to fade away"
Alone within myself again I try to veil away my pain The dirty grey surrounding me 'round And now I hear no sound
"I feel like Melle Mel from way back in the days As i wonder how i keep from going under I got trouble on my mind like my name is chuck d And like Marvin Gaye it makes me wanna holler When the music hits me I feel no pain That's why i gotta put you on again and again I take the needle off the technics and put it in my vein All my troubles get crushed as the rush hits my brain And away goes trouble down the drain"
I see only what I wanna see I be only who I wanna be My blanket covers me Music is my sanctuary Music is my blanket I see only what I wanna see I be only who I wanna be My blanket covers me Music is my sanctuary Music is my blanket You are my living world You are my living world You are you are you are my My only living world.
