lyrics

Relativity


Voice of a future child
Proclaiming what’s in store for us
That sounds its traveling so slow
Can’t hear it in the vacuum of the space.
There’s more for us
If we can wait for words to grow


(All about us today
No time and space)
And we can see infinity so differently


It’s that relativity
That makes the time slow down on me
That makes an emcee out of me

Maybe we underestimated
Just how far we’ve come
Maybe we’re closer than we thought
See past the differences in distances we’re from the sun
You saw it faster than you ought
To have

(All about us today
No time and space)
Relatively speaking, I’ve been peeking far ahead
(All about us today
No time and space)
And we can see infinity so differently, I’ve heard

It’s that relativity
That makes an emcee out of me
now I’m rapping to you

Kinematic cinematic
Studying of moving bodies
Flowing through the universe
No longer static
And are we seeing things
the same way, at the same time?
And is an emcee always squaring up the same rhyme?
Metaphorically I’m speaking
Categorically unique in
Lasting poetry you’re seeking
That’s the low end theory leaking
From the influence
Insurance that we’re living life
In four dimensions
there have been currents
Streams of particles are charged
And moving through the space
Astronauticals at large
And proving you’re the face
A visage of the future,
Mine and yours the pronouns
Time insures we’ll slowdown
My rhyme endures the throwdowns
Time and space will dissipate
A theory relative to you and me will precipitate
Sediment to sentiment
That’s sweeter than an entenman
Making an announcement to the ladies and the gentlemen

That relativity you give to me
That’s from the heart
Light years away from where you’ve been
You have the gravity that’s grabbing me right from the start
We’ll bend the time and start again


(All about us today
No time and space)
Relatively speaking, I’ve been peeking far ahead
(All about us today
No time and space)
And we can see infinity so differently, I’ve heard

It’s that relativity
That makes an emcee out of me
now I’m rapping to you
