“Cuz you’re An artist!!!”

Profit from pain
Pour your soul out
For some cash money flow

We’ll never know the why
But we like to pretend we’re there too
That’s why we say your name

Because we are attracted
Like flies to honey
We are all there, crouching vultures.

Profit from pain
Pour your heart out
For some cash money flow

Whatever is in your brain
Is catastrophic, and the words
Mean something so powerful

Whatever your emotions
Spilled across the page, we can feel
That they all are painfully meaningful

Split your veins across this paper
Let us use it to print your money
You know, soul is valuable, you know?

It bleeds through print after print
Such rage, such anger, it’s exhilarating
Man, made them soak –fucking parasites

Profit from pain
Pour your heart out
For some cash money flow

Fame is a bitter fruit
Bought with pleasure and pain
Tears and rejection transformed to passion

Water that shit, it thrives on that act
Turn around and crunch your bones
Produce or die, print or die, or just die.

Desperation, no such thing as privacy
They want everything, all they can see
Of you, they want every last morsel

Suck you dry, like vampires
So, was it worth it to build this empire?
Master or disaster, tell me which you are.

Profit from pain
Pour your heart out
For some cash money flow.

Tell me, no no, raise your head
Tell me, was this worth it?
Would you take an out if it was given?

Or would you stay to profit from your own pain
Pour out your immortal soul on the altar
For some paper, cash, money, flow, go.

I am artist, analyst, author, poet, composer, musician to name a few aspects of myself. A bit of a jack of trades, I dabble into many fields that encourage the blossom of imagination and allow me to channel my creativity. I dream vividly and view the world through the lens of optimism and opportunity while acknowledging the ink and shadows.
