Just a little parody based on "A Better Tomorrow"
from the Wu Tang Forever album.

Eddie helped me write the hook. I wish I'd thought to have him record it with me, it woulda been perfect since the original has two voices alternating. But hey, what don't I wish. At the time it was just between us for laughs, I didn't plan to record it let alone release it. I didn't even think about writing the verse until two months ago, mainly just to have an excuse to drop the hook in his memory.

Btw, this B the B side to the slly slllqy freemix from last month. Bandcamp wouldn't let me add it there.




This goes for all my brothers and sisters apped out

For all my people infatuated with instant gratification


By the thousands, hours we learned to waste
Clickin' the world away, forget to seize the day
Most of my homies are acting like they don’t know me
Besides liking my posts or reacting to my story

In this new world the Order enforces borders between us
Long before quarantine, sealed in is how they keep us
They got us lifeless like bees from neonics
It seems almost impossible not to be on it

But once you drop it you see it’s just a source of trouble
That cuts your attention span shorter than stubble
Scatters your brain
Have you strainin' to find tattered remains among the rubble
I don’t have to explain, everyone knows
Somehow the app game reminds me of the crack game
( like my last name was Jones ;)

It used to be
“Satisfy my soul”
Now it’s all
“Verify my code”
Breathe deep and slow
Be at ease, no need to scroll
Tryin to keep in rotation / placate the ego

Dopamine fiends hooked on glowing screens
From porn to social media, cross streets to overseas
The red twilight zone just keeps growin' globally
Covid ain’t even close to the only disease

The younger generation's gonna need a ton of neck braces and
No one knows what’s to come from so much radiation to the dome
So unless you R writing it between M_C
Then fuck a iPhone

I know it’s tempting when your situation isn’t the greatest
But the present is a better use of your attention placement
The mind needs peace like the lungs need ventilation
And you’ll never attain it in the face of endless entertainment

You can't smartphone your life away

Link your life away

Post your life away

Smut your life away

Meme your life away

Stream your life away

Cause the screens fuck up your brainwaves

Cause the screens fuck up your brainwaves

Cause the screens fuck up your brainwaves!

Ya know what I'm sayin?!

And yeah I wrote this on a smartphone

Yeah I downloaded the instrumental and uh...

all of that

Yeah I'ma post it on social media

I'm a big hypocrite, it's the human condition

Welcome to reality...

see times is hard
