Negative Space

from Negative Space by Vida Killz



Verse 1:
Push me into oblivion
Where my disaster introverts
Hope when I die I finally spiral
Self destruct thru a super nova
Leave no distance
Between time and space
Geotaggin’ across the universe/
Forbidden grace
Hope when I smile
You read words I can’t say
Caught between fear and enlightenment
Autistic buddha chants for peace
It ain’t hard to hear
Just hard to see
Like I’m reduced to a fraction of self
But when you stepped into this just a fraction of self
All of my subconscious knows it’s hell
Figure 8’s sideways
As I count down to my departure
Cardiac arrested development
& My heart turned into a particle
I can’t find my sense
Nor my dearest friends
left behind to fight all of these
Holograms that haunt me/
Close my eyes still they’re daunting
Defeated again by/

All of these snakes and sheeps and wolves/
All of these shapes that steal my courage

Verse 2:
Pray you know my intents
Subtle as my lazy eye
All I could wish for,
Love letters to the child inside
Momma was a hard rock
Hiding a gem
Poppa was an equation not even
He could comprehend
I could never get comfortable
Couldn’t even sleep right
Older I grow/
More detached from my third eye
Take away these drum tracks
It’s just me speakin’ to higher frequencies
Art an advocate I never had
But uhh, we collective virus
Makin’ copies of DNA codes
To mold a more perfect whole
Well, Solo caen
Oh how I feared home,
Got lost in bottles
& I got lost in hatred
But it was all just a figment of my imagination

All of these snakes and sheeps and wolves/
All of these shapes that steal my courage

Verse 3:
Gun to my head
Evacuate my thought process
No matter where I roam
We starin’ at same sun, moon & stars
Still writin’ in pure form
Jails keep your bars/
I ain’t want none of that/
Mainstream fame
My heart’s too confused to maintain hate
Just wanna retire my moms
She’s been working since the 10th grade
& Every man she loves
Seems to leave more scars
Like kick down one’s with purest heart
‘Cuz you couldn’t get none of that/
None of that/
So bizarre how it goes
From me recording in my room
To keep my sanity/find the peace in me/
To y’all sayin’ you feelin’ it
Since you seen that untitled video/
You loved life & ain’t intent on killin’ it
No more, I pray for no more

All of these snakes and sheeps and wolves/
All of these shapes that steal my courage
