You cannot have happiness without a drop of pain.

“Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.” ― Albert Einstein

I’ve got fire in my hands;
I don’t know what to do with it
my pen is itchin’ to write this moment,
my brain is racin’ ‘cause it’s worth it
we’ve all got dreams, some of us taste it
others dream bigger than the universe,
while those who hate bring them down to dirt
tasting the Earth (we’ve done it)
already been written (we’ve read it)
far from ourselves, it’s just not worth
the burden we carry to be who we are
let’s stay alive so we can dream
and may they take us to that place
of comfort, I see
but I can only see so much,
‘cause these eyes have lied to me.

I’ve got fire in my hands,
but I don’t know what to do with it
I’d give it to someone who’d use it
that lonely child with no friends (nobody), needs a hand
may I be the guide to break doubt and frustration
these restraints have held us down (we’re dyin’)
for many who’ve seen our pain, they think we’re lyin’
but these words speak nothin’ but truth
we’ve got the fire, and here’s proof:

break us down with insipid
talk, talk, talk (hold up)
stop this reapin’,
‘cause Grim’s got his teeth in
I call this Death’s Modification, and
pardon me, for I’m ‘bout to interrupt
if this is rude, I don’t give a fuck
‘cause I’m tired of spinnin’ in this circle, with
no change, just the hateful bullshit people spittin’
behind our backs, ‘cause we got the fire in our hands
‘bout to wrap ‘em ‘round their neck, show ‘em the
Grim reality, this the fire we’re kickin’
in our hands, the world is ours for the takin’
protection, ‘cause environmental domination
it’s up to us to paint a picture of the next sunrise
or write about it, make a change, if
you can’t draw for shit
watch ARTists, the leaders, turn up this fire
blazin’ all over the page, like there’s no tomorrow
show ‘em what’s up
you can call us Volcano, ‘cause we’re ‘bout to erupt
call us what you will, but we’re ARTists
ARTists got fire in their hands,
and they know what to do with it.
This is our moment.

Wassup?
