watched 8 mile

watched 8 mile & did what any person would do. i wrote a rap. then i used one of these crap beats mac provides & i recorded it. but it’s so quiet in the house, i didn’t wanna wake anyone, so it’s a whispered rap. a whispered rap over a canned mac track. but, for the moment, i’m alright with that.

we were cousins long before there was a line in the sand
cousins long before there was a boy and a man
cousins long before there was a line in the sand
cousins long before there was war in the land

cousins long before we even knew how to walk
cousins long before we even knew how to talk
cousins long before we ever held these guns
cousins long before, yeah before we were one

cousins long before orion was an archer
cousins long before we looked up to the warrior
cousins long before there was a slave and a holder
cousins long before we let the past get a hold of

the way we would become, like the gun was in style
the way we would become, like the truth was a lie
and the lie was the truth we came to tell our sons
cousins long before, yeah long before we were one
