posting this super quick because I have to go now



Ay, ay, ay

(0:12)
Everybody wants their own little slice of paradise and
Whoever gets the cake is whoever has the knife and
I am not a blind man, I just see in white and
I count as a witness, so I will raise my right hand
Break it up, break it up,
Make it up, make it up,
Take it up, take it up,
I can never say enough
Even if you prey on us
I can never pray enough
Even if I say too much
What am I even saying? Yeah

Predictability is hard to combat
It’s hard to come back, so I trap it in a rap
And I pack in my backpack
But I still backstab
Sympathy, I guess I never had that
Ad hominem is more common
than common sense, it’s like homicide, don’t take offense
And all that I will give you are two cents
(Innocence) In a sense, this is protection and my defense, yeah

Pocket change, but you can’t pocket change
And you can’t stop the rain with provocative flames
Gotta be vague, and I got a lot to say, not today
Locked in a cage, never documented, ay
Tiptoe, ticked off, in double limbo
Tick tock goes the bomb, when’s it gonna blow?
Tic-tac-toe, gotta switch tactics,
Toe to toe every single day and I gotta practice, yo

Break it up, break it up,
Make it up, make it up,
Take it up, take it up,
I can never say enough
Yes, I am a part of this
May be at the heart of this
Never used my armament
But I think I’m an arsonist

Give me two stars
Call me a narcissist
Fake arguments
Faked all of this
Take all of this
Make all of this
Better
And you better follow the instructions to the letter
If you think that we accept the Renegades we never
Nobody that can be hearing this now can defender
Fires start easily in this kind of weather
In the middle of a spring and fall’s
Pure pressure, yeah

Break it up, break it up,
Make it up, make it up,
Take it up, take it up,
I can never say enough
Even if you prey on us
I can never pray enough
Even if I say too much
What am I even saying? Yeah

ScreeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEE
RELATABLE YES II GET IT BUT AT THE SAME TIME I'M MADE OF SYMPATHY AND THE RENEGADES ARE MY CHILDREN HOW DARE YOU NOT ACCEPT THEM AND NOTHING CAN STOP THE RAIN AND AAAAAAAAAA that's my three cents because I always give more than needed
WildfireK July 17th, 2018, 8:32 pm
@WiispNightmare:
Glad you relate...
WiispNightmare July 17th, 2018, 8:35 pm
@WildfireK: oh no what's wrong
Usually you would say more than that
Just not talkative?
Is it because of the subject??
Are you mad because I'm sympathetic oh noooo
WildfireK July 17th, 2018, 8:40 pm
@WiispNightmare:
Well usually I'd probably get miffed because well sympathy is an actual real trigger word for me and I don't like it

But the reason I look up to TØP and NF so much is because they know that the meaning that they put into their songs and what their songs mean to them is definitley not what their song mean to other people
So instead of pushing for people to conform to discover the meaning behind their songs
There is no true meaning behind it, only what different people see in it
So instead of seeking to be understood, they seek for their songs to be able to be melded to fit as many people as possible so their songs can have a positive impact on their lives, regardless of what those songs mean to them
So I'm trying to be more like that..
WiispNightmare July 17th, 2018, 8:44 pm
@WildfireK: oh

Well

I'll stop saying I understand if you want
I just
Generally think about being in others' shoes a lot??
I know that everyone has a reason for what they do, even if it's vague or seems trivial to others
I don't like seeing people sad or afraid but I know what it's like and i always wished there was someone who was going through what I did to tell me they did it so I could too?
So that's what I try to do??
Sorry if it offends you
Not my intention
PUKING A WALL OF TEXT WAS ALSO NOT MY INTENTION BUT IT HAPPENED ANYWAYS OH NO

@WiispNightmare:
I'm an extremely sympathetic person too, and I don't see anything wrong with that in and of itself, but I've come across the notion that while you might have experienced the same concept that a person is currently experiencing, the experience is slightly different because of the countless factors such as virtues, likes/dislikes, etc.
So while I can sympathize with people, I recognize that perhaps even though I get the concept, I don't get the individual struggle and therefore have to account for an area of uncertainty
So instead of saying "I get it" or "I know what you're going through", because there's a percentage that I don't know, I often ask the person to elaborate and to give their perspective
It's a technique called mirroring vs. parroting
Often conversations get drawn towards ourselves and injecting ourselves as a subject of a conversation dilutes the feeling of control that the other people have in the conversation
It kind of shifts the spotlight
So in order to help people more, I like to make it about the other person and avoid mentioning myself as much as possible
That's the way I like it, so while I am a sympathetic person, I don't show sympathy in and of itself because I don't believe true sympathy exists, but sympathetic tendecies do
I prefer to do it my way, and it often irks me when I see it the other way because it's shown often to not work
There's been a lot of research on this, and it's strongly suggested that avoiding yourself as a subject is a better way to go

I dunno I'm sorry for making you go through all of my philisophical nonsense again...
WiispNightmare July 18th, 2018, 7:33 am
@WildfireK: that makes

A lot of sense???
I do think that occasionally you run across situations that are pretty much 99% the same so they really can say they know, but at the same time someone should never assume they're that special occasion.
But yeah that's neat because like I said it makes sense
And then you have the issue of feeling sympathetic for the person who thinks their sympathy is actually helping P:

So no, I'm not sorry for you "putting me through your philosophical nonsense".
This is a fab conversation and I'm glad to have had it, puppers!
