BARRELS FOR FEATHERS

by Sapient

A strong sense of discernment, hence the name

I'm gonna work this, excavate, I'm done lurkin',

Never uncertain, never done earnin' my name,

'Til the sun is done burnin' its flames

It gets fucked up, but life isn't fair

It's freewill, but will gods interfere?

Hands up in the air, the miracle isn't there

I feel pain and it ain't nothin' to grin and bear

I been preparin' the most thorough of plans

With the weight of the world on my back

I can support all the weight

And still go to war with no paint worn on my face

Ay, I live correct and with honor

They meddle like children disrespectin' their fathers

Proud of what they earn, but no pride in what they make

It's time to wipe smiles off they faces

 

Chorus:

In these times of war, I'm a rise by force

And you and I gonna perish together

I have barrels for feathers

x2

 

Modern times got me feelin' so hateful

(Still) feelin' like I'm buildin' with Legos

(Still) killin' for pesos

(Still) lasso in the dirt, ain't no Pecos Bill

Heed warning I'm a rise by force

I've already been plannin' for this lifetime war

Keepin' it so damn raw in the trenches

With every advance there's been thought out defenses

The edge is in numbers, me and you have it

Therefore the music gets truth added

The true addicts strappin' on boots

We don't reply to threats we launch nukes

I won't let the past be my guide

They wanna be my god, they wanna read my mind

Gatekeepers jinglin' keys

Tryin' to make us keep in line, but now we D.I.Y.

 

 

Chorus:

In these times of war, I'm a rise by force

And you and I gonna perish together

I have barrels for feathers

x2

 

In these times of war, I'm a rise and soar

To new heights never climbed before

You've got nothin' to lose, then your life's a bore

I've got plenty to lose so I'm bendin' the rules, yeah

In these times of war, while you ride your horse

I'm a fly, bird's eye the course

So you wonderin' what I'm smilin' for?

Free hands while I carry my weapon, gun barrels for feathers

In these times of war, support's a sight for sore eyes

But I still light the torch

Let it spread 'til the world is mine and yours

'Til then I stay calm, never mind the storm

 

Chorus:

In these times of war, I'm a rise by force

And you and I gonna perish together

I have barrels for feathers

x2
