Hollow Pursuits

Kinda moody, kinda sci fi hip hop with a lot of synthesizers and reverb and stuff.

What do you guys think of this? The only sample is that little bit of Shock G saying, "This is way more real" from Packet Man. Thanks for listening, and thanks for any feedback.

Here are the words:

Can't let it end this way Can't believe I what I just pissed away
Can we start over? Have I seen you here before?
I've had some second chances can I have a couple more?
Thinking about conversations I can't help but retread
Can't move on. Can't forget. What I do instead.
Moment to moment I build a monument
New religion Holy sacrament
Time rewinding First light shining
Making coal from diamonds Unbreak the hymen
Serendipity what's the recipe
Down to a science. More than what you see
I'm flipping different frequencies I'm Mind and matter equally
Using all my tools. Breaking molecules
It's more real than it's realistic Four barrel, double fisted
Adrift in the heavens. Travel in all dimensions
Pave the road with good intentions

It's a trick of the light. Beyond state of the art
She looks for real, she's st. pauly girl at heart
Fully convinced. What exists exists.
Even if I miss I still can't miss
I make 'em all salute me Corrupted absolutely
Nothing hurts there's no such thing as just desserts
Fire you can play with. Whatever you get away with.
No right and no wrong. They measure time by the song.
Nothing at stake. No hearts break
I don't have to miss you When i'm done I just dismiss you
Don't even have to good night kiss you
I tell myself I'm practicing For whatever's coming next
whenever that begins I know you're only actressing
Reciting lines she wrote for me way back when
Repeat it note for note to me, let me hear it again

What do you dream when all your dreams come true
And no matter what you do, the one you need won't talk to you
If I could just one time have the right words to say
One time make a bet and have the right cards to play
But I've got no swag, just esprit de l'escalier
Rewind it remix it take out the trash in it
Try to find a way to fix it. Slips away you can't grip it
Can't go back again it's not the way you remembered it
It's like a bad sequel you can't stand the way they rendered it
What you've made here stays here
Might get burned up if you Stray too near
Time traveling the story's unravelling
Is it real talk or babbling
No before no after just chapter and chapter
Same old joke, same old laughter
