Thumbtack (FF 87)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



You could call it a comeback my life was in circles stuck runnin laps
Repeating all the same mistakes now where’s the fun in that
I couldn’t catch a break
I kept straight bangin on the hatch it wouldn’t come unlatched
Stuck in the same place thumbtack
Had to embrace a change of pace it’s not a muthafuckin race
I know that’s the information put in front of our face
Open my heart to inspiration it’s like cracking a safe
I take action today without plan continuation bias
Continue plotting out my plans to get my fans the flyest
Music I can, in pursuit of the perfect essence
Part of which is subjective to your personal preference
When yours and mine align it’s a beautiful thing
Married to the music time to find a suitable ring
Forged from work that the dirt under my cuticles bring
And I promise to never ever say the usual things
