Cranes In The Sky


I tried to drink it away
I tried to put one in the air
I tried to dance it away
I tried to change it with my hair

I ran my credit card bill up
Thought a new dress would make it better
I tried to work it away
But that just made me even sadder

I tried to keep myself busy
I ran around in circles
Think I made myself dizzy
I slept it away, I sexed it away
I read it away

Away, away, away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away, away

Well it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds
Yeah it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds

I tried to run it away
Thought then my head be feeling clearer
I traveled 70 states
Thought moving around make me feel better

I tried to let go my lover
Thought if I was alone then maybe I could recover
To write it away or cry it away (don’t you cry it baby)

Away, away, away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away, away

But it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds
Yeah it’s like cranes in the sky
Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds

Away, away, away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away, away

– Solange Knowles.


Someone expressing his feelings has become a problem? We have come to a point where we follow ‘the rules’ more than we follow our feelings. The rules are created in a way that seems like we benefiting but we are not. The rules need to change, and the only way these rules can change is by expressing how we feel about these rules.

We live in a world of instructions and laws. We hardly express ourselves on how we feel about these instructions and laws we live under. We are systematically told what to do at what time. We are told which country is best to trade with through media propaganda. Everything is done by top leaders and company owners who should have the peoples best interest but don’t.

Why do these top companies never share the information they gather with us? They always say it is for improving their company services. When on the internet, we are constantly asked to fill in some type of questionnaires. When will we get the opportunity to ask these companies some questions. Google is buying or already bought every company they see as a threat. Google owns almost the entire internet, all the information. That is too much information about us for one company to have. They are constantly updating their software’s and programs on our phones, we let these updates happen without questioning exactly what type of information is being updated and exchanged.

Facebook alone is trying to make its social media platform to be too emotional for its users. Emotional intelligence that might end up hurting humanity, where, we no longer share our feelings with each other as human beings but rather rely on such emotional intelligence to comfort us. Which I should add that it is dangerous when we don’t know and realize why this platform is taking this route.

The reason I am raising these views is because people have a problem with Kanye expressing his feelings during his tours. If you like an artist, surely you have to be interested in their politics, life and global views. As fans we need to know where the feelings come from when artists are creating songs, why are they behaving the way they do. The best way for artists to do that is by expressing their feelings through tour performances.

People say that there might be something wrong with Kanye, honestly, I say let him be. Why should there be standard ways of behaving in society or the world. There isn’t a right or wrong way in how one views the world.

Media might say he’s suffering from sleep deprivation but he said some real talk in the Sacramento rant. We are constantly being lied to because we no longer question how things operate. We just accept because we believe that people in power have our best interest, which is false. These global companies want to own everything and dictate how we should live.

It is time for us to start asking questions and find ways to get answers to our questions, they are not going to give us real answers. We need to create our own paths, if need be, go back to basis.


Wonderin’ whether God’s gonna say hi

[Verse 3: Sampha]

Please face me when I speak
Please say to me somethin’ before you leave
You’ve been treatin’ me like I’m invisible
Now I’m visible to you
Oh the invisible truths they sold
I can’t quite understand the games you play
Understand, understand
Understand I’m standin’ under oath
And I promised I, I wouldn’t fall anymore
But I’m cryin’ at the bar
I’m wishin’ that you saw my scars, man
I’m wishin’ that you came down here
And stood by me
And look at me like you knew me
But I feel so alone
Like I don’t know anyone except the night sky above


Kanye West ft Sampha- Saint Pablo

Red Wine

[Verse 1: Syd]

Red wine time on the couch
Happy you agreed to hang out
Keep my head in the clouds
Keep them old names out your mouth
I can make you laugh out loud
We the only ones in the house
I can help you body wind down
Make this bottle disappear right now
Get comfortable, comfortable
Get comfortable, comfortable
Get comfortable, comfortable
Let’s stay in for the night
Maybe take a walk outside
Let’s distance your pride
Me fall in love with your mind
If I look deep in your eyes
I can guess your zodiac sign
We ain’t got nothing but time
We can just chill and unwind
Get comfortable, comfortable
Get comfortable, comfortable
Get comfortable, comfortable

[Verse 2: Common]

Freedom is the road less traveled by the multitude
The mood, it’s the mode, it’s the culture
Where there’s food there’s vultures
More Tony now, back then I was Sosa
I was sent like a penny in a loafer
The 2Pac Deepak Chopra
On a plane drinking wine with Oprah
When I missed the dap I ain’t mean to insult her
Black Caesar, ey o amo roma
Tuto biene vino rosa
My dominican girl she loves soca
Take her to Minetta take her to the MOCA
Most of my friends at home that I’m close to
When they talk, put it on stone like a sculpture
Used to be a hooper, now I’m a hoper
Thoughts I bring to life like an ultra sound
I’m bound to the underground
Breaking walls down for the black and brown
A activist is active now
How far will you go for exposure?
Little homie in the paint tryna post up
Don’t make me have to put you on a poster
Posterized by what I vocalize
Weathered the storm like I know the skies
Yea we wear the mask but I know no disguise
These signs of the times are notarized
Written by the lord of the skies mortalized
In us, I got cold through cruel winters
Grandmas, defenders, Fred Hamptons agenda
Never been good with pretenders
They lying on the king like Simba
Dinner, branzino and red wine
Quality shared time
Fucking and laughing ’til its bed time


[Verse 3: Elena]

Red like my lips
Blue like past thoughts
Brown like your eyes
Just enough time
I can’t think now
You’re too close and I…
Might be too nice
These New York nights
Got me taking chances
I think your hands
Might look just right
If they held mine
Get comfortable, get comfortable
Get comfortable, get comfortable
Get comfortable, get comfortable
Get comfortable, get comfortable
Get two glasses
Now I’m swimming
Off the deep end
Heightened senses
No pretending
Make my head spin
I like dancing
In my bedroom
It’s just me and you
Put that tape on
Tell me what you want
Let’s just make time feel, long
Get comfortable, get comfortable
You could just stay for the night
Here, let me turn down the lights
Get comfortable, get comfortable
You can let go
Passion comes from down below
We go together like so
Get comfortable, get comfortable
Let’s make a toast
That we both can make the most of this time
Red wine

Between Hillary and Trump, I would’ve also voted for Trump to be the next American president. Trump offers that Hillary cannot offer and that’s  just simple feelings. Most of his speeches, Trump was honest on how he felt about everything, one would have thought that Trump is stupid. But at every end of his speeches or interviews he would have been more honest about “great America” and how it should be protected. By building a wall between America and Mexico? Send most of them back?

Police killing blacks in America is a well thought out plan in terms of making white supremacy more dominant, making black men agitated when they see the police. He gave his honest opinion about Muslims and their terrorist tendencies.

One thing we need to understand is that the white race is rich, monetarily. Trump supporters are the richest people in America, owning and running multi-million-billion types of companies and corporations. These are the ones that are looking for world dominance. They no longer care about politics, these multi-billionaires want to make more money. They are looking to exploit each country they see with intimidation.

America has been investing in nuclear weapons, the latest technology for their whole military force. America right now is at a very good place to declare war to almost any country that does not want to co-operate with them. Trump is the right person to do that.

He has exploitative business trades that most business billionaires have. He knows good bargains and rip off where he sees possible. That is how Trump is looking at each country right now, just as business territories where they can come in to a particular country, take what they want and seem as the good people. It is about world domination for the elites of America, they want to own everything. They own almost everything, the law, the internet, entertainment companies, NEWS outlets, sports teams, stock markets, religion and social media platforms.

One could say that the owners of these vehicles we want to buy, the owners of the clothing brands we pay huge amount of money to wear. The owners of top tier companies in any angle are the once who supported Trump. The not so rich white people who openly support Trump are the ku klux klan. These kkk believe in white supremacy.

Both the rich Trump supporters  and the not rich supporters have one thing in common; world domination through financial power and through white supremacy. One could say that Trump and his supporters are the once that architect-ed apartheid. They would intentionally suppress other races through whatever power they hold.

Donald Trump, a businessman openly came out and admitted that he has racist tendencies, ideologies, he didn’t lie about how he feels. It is time Afrikan individuals to openly discus what type of world dominance they would prefer.
