A Little While In (Lyrics)

A couple cats have asked me to post lyrics to different joints along this journey so (finally) listening to the masses in 2016 – here’s a little something for you to listen to/read – Peace.


A LITTLE WHILE IN (by Visual Poetics)

In a little while…

There’ll be another gun tragedy

Cops’ll roll up on scene with everything but the cavalry

Later, a new President consoles grieving families

While the NRA kicks back and pleads insanity

Sounds crazy right? But that’s the new reality

People starving for action and we keep feeding em’ anarchy

(Go on and come after me)


In A Little While…

There’ll be rioters in the streets filled with unhappy civilians

Cause their holy men are so obsessed with talkin’ – they cannot listen

Right up to the point when you catch em slippin’

How many committed crimes that should land em in prison?

How many died cause their beliefs didn’t match the mission?

And its the same for Muslims, Jews, Catholic and Christians

But that’s a game that’s probably best left to the statisticians

I believe in a most high – guess I’m just anti-religion

Something sinister when ministers are living like rockstars

Padding their pockets for years and You still ain’t got far

That’s whether you hold rosary beads or you Allah-U-Akbar

In Roman cathedrals or the place where the mosques are

Flashing lights – go from cameras to squad cars

When the masses start turning and flipping off the top bar

No more running thru the forest blind

And that kind of thing’ll get you stuck like a porcupine

Nine to Fivers – going hard on that four-quarter grind

As their IRA shrinks like the California waterline

Where do we draw the line? Need to rethink your focus kid

Yall need to protest out where the shady loaners live

Capsizing the dream of home ownership

While the middle class gets caught out there like homelessness

And the crooks make off with seven figure bonuses

Call it out for bogusness and what, now I’m a Socialist?

(but I’ve been called worse – and I will again, in a little while)


I can’t speak any clearer…

That dude the cops shot looks like the one I used to see in the mirror

Another me reduced to a moment of silence

Another child singled out for their cultural alliance

The media spreads hate and fear like a cold or a virus

Politicians – claim ignorance of the notion of science

While pro-lifers condone the electric chair – Texas to Delaware –

Like no one’s ever been arrested unfair

Same ones screaming justice for everywhere

Won’t lift a finger to support universal medical care

Yall better prepare…

(Cause in a Little While – We Will Wake Up)


In a Little While…

We’ll forget about all the sadness and the loss

When my daughter comes in – asking me to feed her some applesauce

Later, we’ll hit the beach like David Hasslehoff

We’re going to turn these lights and these cameras off

Eventually, when the shouting stops and the fans don’t come around a lot

When the essence calls – saying its time to bounce from this spot

Either by natural causes or a thousand shots

I just hope I’m ready to meet my grandparents at the mountaintop

I’m getting all emotional now…

But feel more sorry for those of us that don’t know how

Been goin’ for a while, but hold on child

Still crossing oceans now with this old man style

If you’re progressive – you’re more than free to rock with me

But know this big homie – I don’t believe in mediocrity

I do believe its only we that’s stopping we

And my philosophy game could probably compete with Socrates

I’ll hear something soon to bring me back to Earth again

And I’ll just reup – start all over like First and Ten

And on that note, my Cleveland Browns will be superb again

What?…You heard me right – I said it

Flows kinetic – need no revision and no edits

If I put something on a track, then I probably don’t regret it

So go ahead and roll the credits…

Cause in a Little While – Its all gon’ be copacetic
