lyrics

Ayo I’m sitting here waiting, building anticipation
‘Bout to drop bombs on a brand new nation
hirolla, rooke5 the chronicle collaboration
Unexpected allies in hip hop preservation
In silent meditation, allow me to get my thoughts straight
Refused to touch this pen in like eight days straight
til I reassumed the role, I just started writing
Defeat the inner conflict its myself I’ve been fight
Myself I’ve ignited, time to let the fuse burn
Take a step outside your element and watch the tables turn
Anxiety inside building up to no concern
Pull the words from the concussion just to see what I can learn
Inspired by the panic, motivated by the pain
The pressure on my skull induced the swelling of my brain
Try to keep a level head, its so hard to refrain
But its time to drop the gloves keep momentum that I’ve gained

Chorus
So I’m sitting at the bottom looking up at the top
And I’m looking for momentum to help me back up
Cause the climb to the top is always so steep
And the bottom of the bucket is always real deep
So I’m rolling down the hill take momentum back up
And once I get there hope I don’t get stuck
So I’m rolling down the hill take momentum back up
Too bad I’m at the bottom and I’ll always be stuck

Apply the circumstantial evidence, to words taking precedence
Momentum as a measurement of manufactured relevance
Effective force velocity, encouraged animosity
Uncaging all the animals locked up deep inside of me
Ferocious little wallaby, pocket speaking honestly
Approach it from the starting line, a simple kind philosophy
Conquering the climb on this rugged terrain
Then I stumble down the slope to my jugular vein
Find myself in the valleys in the crease of my brain
The acclivity’s enough just to drive me insane
From the emotional drain, to the physical strain
Surrounded by intensity, choking at the reins
Utilize the situation, engage it for the service
Extracting the omissions found deep beneath the surface
Turn the words into frags let the crowd be nervous
Cause this tongue and cheek slander now that’s a purpose

Chorus

Man its just dumb luck, you’re just stuck in a rut
And once you get out, man you’ll fuck shit up
Keep talking that talk Rooke5 you’re down on your luck
You wanna try to write but your notebook’s shut
Dude just open it up and steal the fire from heaven
When you lay It on a page learn a valuable lesson
Don’t let it get you down like a manic-depressive
You’ll learn to let it breathe relax that facial expression
No need to be stressing, alright make it progressive
Say it with your chest release that pent up aggression
Its best to vocalize in these therapy sessions
Cause this pen keeps the secret of your silent confession
Now the ink keeps bleeding, feed that fatal addiction
Words speak for themselves with a verbal description
Paralyze your apparatus, suffocated by the diction
Harold crick is bound to die, damn its stranger than fiction


So I’m rolling down the hill take momentum back up
And once I get there hope I don’t get stuck
So I’m rolling down the hill take momentum back up
Well I guess I’m at the top and I’ll never be stuck
