Sense Abused: HEARING

We're all guilty of abusing our ears by listening to gossip. I try my best not to talk negatively about people & it makes me uncomfortable when others do. Sometimes I use music to vent about things I refrain from complaining about publicly, mainly because I don't like to emit noise pollution. This track is a perfect example of that. Plus, gossip always reminds me of that game called "Telephone" we played as kids. You sit in a circle, whisper, then the secret completely changes by the time it gets around. Ain't no point in running your mouth cause most of the time, the info is inaccurate. My philosophy is...

Until you're perfect, shut up.

lyrics

HEARSAY

VERSE I
listen here, young buck, I'm here to tell you how it is
I've been in this biz for longer than a minute
and I am finished, dealin' with dirty linen
keep my clothes clean and keep a crease in my denim
skeletons in my closet cause it's better that way
never air your laundry out in the middle of the day
accusations leave stains, so don't even say
anything you wouldn't sign your name to, refrain from that

CHORUS
speak up, what's that? I can't hear you
if you ain't seen it for yourself, how you know it's true?
better be careful who you choose to believe
how 'bout you shut yo' mouth when you talkin' to me
speak up, what's that? I can't hear you
if you ain't seen it for yourself, how you know it's true?
better be careful who you choose to believe
how 'bout you shut yo' mouth when you talkin' to me

VERSE II
ya seem to know more about my life than I do
and please don't assume cause you ain't got a damn clue
and I'm through with the he said, she said this,
so you can say I said to kiss my kicks
just ignorance and non-sense pourin' outta both lips
like a leaky faucet - mouth drips bull-spit
full clip, tongue like a gun shootin' gossip
lack of general knowledge, inferiority complex

CHORUS

BRIDGE
speak up...
speak up...
speak up...
speak up...
