about

No man is an Iland, intire of it selfe;
every man is a peece of the Continent,
a part of the maine;
if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea,
Europe is the lesse,
as well as if a Promontorie were,
as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or of thine owne were;
any mans death diminishes me,
because I am involved in Mankinde;
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.

John Donne, 1624

lyrics

NO MAN AN ISLAND

Came from the wrong side of town
Dysfunctional system breaking down
Mom working graveyard to pay the rent
Crack smoking father abandonment
Neighborhood schools run like a jail
Fuck all chance to prevail
He'll find his place out on the street
Working on a violent rap sheet
Dope, civility abdication
Constant social deprecation
Burning to the destruction of night
Guy with the meanest gun is right

CHOR
No man an island
Entire of himself
For I am a part of mankind
The bell it tolls for me

Down and out sleeping under the bridge
Senseless waste of human knowledge
Shivering in the campfire light
Fighting just to do whats right
Lifes possessions in a small backpack
So long before it makes them crack
Too blinded by money to realize
Blowback will strike those who victimize

CHOR
No man an island
Entire of himself
For I am a part of mankind
The bell it tolls for me
No man an island
Entire of himself
The bell it tolls for me

Coming social descent
Fault of establishment
Violent chaos nascent
Disillusionment

CHOR
