Sound system gonna bring me back up
One thing that I can depend on

Try to describe to the limit of my ability
It's there for a second, then its given up what it used to be

Contained in my music somehow more than just sound
This inspiration coming and twisting things around
Because you always know that it's gonna have to go
You always know that you'll be back in the cold
Point of departure sublimated in a song
It's always coming to give me that hope
For just a second then its gone but

Static pulse inside of music bringing us escape
It's always temporary changing nothing in its wake
Just a second where we're leaving all this shit behind
Just a second but its leaving just this much in mind
To resist despair that second makes you see
To resist despair because you can't change everything
To resist despair in this world is what it is to be free

Wake up turn my box on
Bust the shade let the sun in
Times getting tougher bout time to start running
Box in my hand music by my side
Skanking to the rhythm of the music by my side
