Parachute - Feat. Illogic (Almighty Ill2lectual Remix)

lyrics

[Illogic verse]

Free falling no parachute
we keep ballin while cloudy eyes dehydrate
up to our necks in what’s left of life to execute
we keep stallin no progressing the primate
Satisfied with the destitute with last breath accept no substitute
Cash checks in sleep walking cocoon
Hug children with no passion cause you auctioned off the best of you
Highest bidder demeanor constant
Time continues to run out your running in your office
Memos and meetings and a yearn for assign seating
While demeaning and dream draining completes your coffin
Lost in parking space
Too often guarding our hearts while cultivation of our garden of hopes suffocates
It only takes a promotion A premonition of escape the cycle
but we lose patients tired of waiting so we embrace the cycle
Riding the miracle round, but there’s miracles around you if eyes wide
Most coast blind folded by choice no voice to raise ruckus
Cause silence is golden kill joy ride rollin 
Laughter is best medicine but pharmacy’s closed
Disaster seem heaven sent cause your smile overdosed
You know happiness is right there if you can just wake from this nightmare

[Kristoff Krane]

And by the time that I was five
They started asking me
What I was gonna be
When I get older
For the rest of my whole life
Light a candle like a child
Hold that fire in your eyes
Like you never knew
It meant so much to be alone
And cry

And there’s nothing more to lose
Unless there’s something more to hide
I mean there’s nothing more to prove
Unless there’s something to define
I knew I shouldn’t have listened to
Doctor not clean
They fed me pre-determined paths to freedom
Now I’m not free.

I mean I’m not me
When I look into the mirror
And so I copy people
Who appear to be secure
The problem is we’re all dirty, baby
Elephants chained to our masters
Slave to fake skeleton
Keys to the kingdom are right in my hand
But I’d rather feel the struggle
Till I know that I can.
So I throw ‘em back in
Sit by the stream and watch the sun set
And remind myself what it means
To achieve success.

It’s the one test
That makes you sacrifice your comfort
If you find it when it’s gray
Then you will pass with flying colors
I always wondered what it looks like
If there were no money
And the people in my book
Were on their feet and never hungry
But when I turn the page
There’s a picture of a snake
Responsible for murdering the vision I’m attached to
Adam and Eve had a dream under the family tree
But traded it one day
In exchange for the rotten apple

And the sign reads have a nice day
Regardless of the path I take
Regardless of the word you’re in,
Or the lens you use,
To make sense of each past mistake
(each breath is priceless) (2x)
