Just Business (FF 70)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



I’ve heard it said it’s just business
As if that excuses bad behavior in the face of the witness
Alleviates any pressure felt for making a difference
Go ahead say it in a sentence
It’s just business, separating action from the concept
The people from the profit
Laborers from the labor market
Loan sharkers from the waters, as they hunt for their next target
I’m trying to build a brand without being branded
And keep the people entertained while still remaining candid
Learning to accept responsibility
And that I can’t fix all the problems every person dear to me faces
But maybe I can fix some of my own
And you can crash on the couch every once in awhile in my home
It’s a line between enabling and helping
It’s hard not to blur the lines they usually end up melting
I’m a line stepper, spicy cracked pepper
Broke the fourth wall to share my heart I hope you felt it
