I had some rough skirmishes yesterday. This one was easy-peasy. I guess I surrendered to the epiphany of this song.

Lyrics

Surrender to the epiphany of keeping it real.
Surrender to the epiphany of keeping it real.
I had this great epiphany
about keeping it real.
I thought I would surrender to it
so that I can keep it real.

The way it went was this, you see.
The way it went was really cool.
The way it went was this, you see.
Here is what I thought.
I thought:

Hey, you, you should keep it real
and to do so, you should do things
that are really real.
To keep it real, add more blood, add more guts
so they can smell it, too.
That’s how you keep it real.
Invest in all your senses, too.
That’s how you keep it real,
but please stay out of jail.

So that I can, keep it real.
I can keep it real, every day.
I can keep it real.
I can keep it real, while I play.
So I, I go and do my best things.
I add blood and guts
and lots of lovely stinky things.

But since I don’t want to go to jail,
I just use emotional things.
Really scary, really bloody,
really disgusting emotional things
and I spread them on the canvas
with my words for all to see.
It’s how, it’s how
I express keeping it real.
