Hey, man!

Youíre in my space
And in my face
You steal my time
Youíre on my dime

Youíre on my toes
Too near my nose
You block my rights
You dim my lights

Donít breathe my air
Or touch my hair
Give me a break
Iím real - youíre fake

Youíre lost - Iím found
Youíre noise - Iím sound
Take off that mask
Thatís all I ask

And all Iíll tell
I donít believe that thereís a hell
Some nasty pit devoid of grace...
Thereís no such place.

Or heaven up past rocketís reach
I hear you preach
But canít accept that Iíll be left behind
And lose my mind

Or be controlled by evil force
You say whose source
Comes straight from angel falling?

Oh, PleaseÖThatís so appalling!

You make me sick, you lunatic.
Get back, Get out
There is no doubt that youíre the one
Who needs to run, to hide.

Itís YOU whoís lied
To me and mine
Youíve crossed the line
An end time sign you bray.

Bah humbug!

I am not afraid
Of you, or your Looney tune
Same ole one you always croon
It hurts my head, Iíve said - and said - and said

Leave me alone
(Iím on the phone)
Donít have time
Iím in my prime

BesidesÖ even if itís true (this rapture)
Anti-guy wonít have to capture me to give the beastly mark of dark and bad.

Youíre mad, youíre zip Ė
Iím rad, Iím hip

Which oneís the fool?
Not IÖIím waaay too cool
To live that stupid fairy tale
Beyond earthís cryptic mystery veil

*Zap-Zap boom, in twinkling blink

Hey man!

Youíve left the room
I face sure doom
Youíre outta sight
There is no light

I cannot see
Iím stuck (youíre free)
Where did you go?
Oh No! Oh No!

It was true, the stuff you spouted
Why, oh why, did you not SHOUT it?
Take me down and make your case
I might have stopped a life of waste

I weep - I wail
I gnash my teeth
Iím trapped in fire
So far beneath

Farther than I thought Iíd go
To reap the seed I chose to sow
I chanced Ė I dared
And now Iím scared

I pushed - You caved
Never knowing what I craved
From my dark place
To Godís good grace

I heard you teach
But couldnít reach
From where I lived and died
Perspective from my sin - Outside

The road was wide
I let time slide
I gave you chase - but all I really wanted was

Your SPACEÖ

Awesome rap style highlighting the high price of rejecting God. Excellect use of style that pulls the reader in and doesn't let go until the end!

A racey, pacey piece! I loved the off beat rhyme and metre and the message! Well done.

Very cool. I could just hear someone rappin' this to a funky beat...
