DRIFTERS' COLLECTIVE

ALTERNATIVE HIP HOP BAND

WRITERS' BLOCK

I'm on the brink of a vision that I can't visualize
cuz my mind is obliged to listen
I feel like I'm often sidetracked and drifting
alongside the clutter of our modern condition
In this postmodern world imposed ideas blur
with my seemingly truthful expression
I try to write down and capture my essence
but as I look away and look back
all I see is another cliché

portraying the fact that every word I utter             
is taken from another mind covering another    
    
place and time, paraphrasing is fine
but I want to rephrase a phrase that's mine
so I set out to define the fine line in-between
all the violated lines I've seen, but I find it's obscene
that I can't get my thoughts across and all progress is lost.

 

Distant thoughts are drifting down
I find words seem true, but they never combine
bit by bit, they disappear
now I'm lost inside my mind
distant thoughts are drifting down
I find words seem true, but they never combine
bit by bit, they disappear
now I'm lost inside my mind

 

I got a problem that i need to adress i feel an urge to express
myself and i guess i’m on the verge of success                
but i profess my words are stuck in the process
lost the address, i had this thought I can’t transgress
it’s a mess, all ideas are suppressed
and oppressed for trespassing inside my consciousness
and the problem is, i can't figure out
where all the nonsense is, and where i parked my wits
my thoughts are busy fighting other occupants    
        
backstage, while i’m staring at blank page
i talk to the city, i’m trying hard to spark a conversation
i will need some help to make my mark, an awesome observation
the mind is a sophisticated installation
isolating insulation, I can’t find the inspiration
so i’m pacing back and forth, mind racing
to erase this situation that i'm facing

 

Distant thoughts are drifting down
I find words seem true, but they never combine
bit by bit, they disappear
now I'm lost inside my mind
distant thoughts are drifting down
I find words seem true, but they never combine
bit by bit, they disappear
now I'm lost inside my mind

Distant thoughts are drifting down
I find words seem true, but they never combine
bit by bit, they disappear
now I'm lost inside my mind
distant thoughts are drifting down
I find words seem true, but they never combine
bit by bit, they disappear
ow I'm lost inside my mind
