about

Marcus J: A love song dedicated to the tool I use to do what I love to do, and a love song to the tool I use to make it easier to tell the people I love that I love them, even though they probably don’t realize it, cause it’s always buried in a silly rap song.

C-Doc: This was another song that started off with a totally different beat (two different beats if you count the temp beat Marcus "borrowed" to write his verse). I like the OG version but it just didn't have that spark to hold it against the rest of the songs we were writing and this track was a little more adventurous, I guess.

lyrics

Marcus J: Enemies I got very few
And if you think you are I ain’t talkin to you
But who I’m talkin to forever is a mic
A love hate thing like spike do the right
So maybe I might just grab a pen
Write a letter to myself askin how you been
And then spit the answer in a verse
16 lines 8 rhymes 6 times rehearsed
Friends I got very few
And if you think you are then I’m talkin to you
But what I’m talkin through forever is a mic
Forever is a long time dark to light
Life is a long rhyme framed with vanilla skies
Most these dreams are unseen man damn these eyes
But I never met a mic that I didn’t like
Cause I never seen a dark that you couldn’t light

C-Doc: Everything I say you can hear cause I transmit-
Sound into a signal that can bounce around the planet- my
Tool for this is simple in my hand it's understated- I'm
Makin it look easy even when it's complicated- so I
Treat it with respect- a respect that it deserves- as its
Pulling from the air and its collecting all my words- when I
Put it all together then the picture is complete- and I'm
Hypin up the crowd to get em jumpin out their seats
I never met a Mic I didn't like no I'm joking- that
Kidd Joey bread tried to sell me one was broken- and
This is just a token- of my appreciation- to
Everyone supporting hip-hop around the nation- nah
Man I mean the planet cause we've gone worldwide- for
All those who've died and those who still try- so my
Mic sounds nice check one and you can SEE- why the
Impossebulls have always been some microphone fiends
