Lyrics:

Swank

It’s like, now I lay me down to sleep with one eye..
wide shut, case the nightmares creep thru my mind;
wit a journal on my nightstand jotting the recall…
of booty calls, fights and flight and even freefall…
bump this piece in the morning to remind you;
a cue of just what to do, when we find you...
holding on to a real live mystical dream;
then we wrestling with crazy translating the themes…
double takes, deja vü’s and reality checks;
Stress from unlived life that you had to repress;
Let's peruse thru clues that allude to the true you;
Moves you wanted to - but you did not do...
Because of rules, guidelines in ya waking life;
It's almost like ya got a license to be wild for the night;
Daylight - the fantasies and dead family's gone...
Unless you never hold back and you never conform
That's word bond...

Deep sleep it's like sure, I should’ve dreamed more
Wide awake it's, you’re my dream and I’m yours
deep sleep it's these dreams are real, aren’t they?
Wide awake it's watching dreams fade away

Nasir Jones said sleep the cousin of death;
Game said that a dream is a kin to your last breath…
I’m more like Inception, tibetan dream yoga, dream gnosis…
no totem, extreme focus; peyote soup and the African Root…
lucid loops, same headphones i use in the booth…
and the unconscious image that Martin Luther King saw’s
the mountain top from whence I come down with the law…
old world order countin’ sheep people, they the sheeple gods …
one percent - I’m Freddy Kreuger reachin' for y’all…
to the 99%, I vent, I'm wishin' peace for y’all;
It's paradox, oneironaut I never sleep at all…
third eye, rapid eye movement;
timeless environments, visions of the future…
aspirations - some say their unobtainable…
atomic probabilities, mysteries unexplainable...

Deep sleep it's like sure, I should’ve dreamed more
Wide awake it's, you’re my dream and I’m yours
deep sleep it's these dreams are real, aren’t they?
Wide awake it's watching dreams fade away

Sometimes I feel like morpheus, a god of ya dreams;
thru the doors of perception, it’s not what it seems…
and I done spent my whole life tryna search for the one…
if you can hear my voice than the search is done…
now we gotta get you trained, teachin’ you to believe…
that you can achieve levels no one else can achieve…
Or maybe even like the Oracle, you walk in the room…
and I’m sage kid, tellin’ you there is no spoon..
there’s a reason that you’re hearing this track this very minute…
there’s a mission that’s been started that we need you to finish…
if you overhear this then I ask you to listen
for the the men and the women that's trapped in the system;
trapped in a prison, trapped in indecision . . .
trapped in inhibition, trapped in prohibition . . .
wrapped in code, raveled in status wit no vision…
you could shatter your shackles you’ll grasp fact, you’re limitless…

Deep sleep it's like sure, I should’ve dreamed more
Wide awake it's, you’re my dream and I’m yours
deep sleep it's these dreams are real, aren’t they?
Wide awake it's watching dreams fade away

Deep Sleep
Wide Awake
(repeat to fade)
