Marcus J: This was just a little throw away rhyme. Another one of my rhyme writing games. There was this beat off The Stepbrothers album Lord Steppington that I dug a lot, so I looped it and threw it in the car. Over the course of a week or so I had a nice little rhyme, adhering for the most part to the “guidelines” I decided to write to. Content took a back seat to structure on this song, but the song is really about losing passion. Passion gets born, and it grows, and sometimes it dies. Where will you be, emotionally, when you lose your passion or when your passion loses you?


Marcus J: Good at what I do, I don’t do what I’m bad at
Bad attitude but nothing to be mad at
Except for everything all at the same time
I touch both the dead and the live with the same rhyme
The question becomes whatcha gonna do
Drop your defenses let me touch you
It’s not true I’ve never been in love before
Truthfully I’ve never been in love no more
Don’t keep score cause I don’t want to lose
But in the end it only depends on who you choose
And that’s a win, not an end, this is a start
Gonna take a friend to mend or fall apart
More than that, it’s more not less
Still starvin swallowin nothin but the stress
It’s a test and I know this better than you
You know this cause you know what I’ve been through
It’s true all of it, all except the lies
I’m right here, where will you be when it dies?
