about

Washington, D.C. rapper-producer releases his self-produced debut single, The Serpent.

lyrics

Nobody, never had any purpose, I'm just a,
Nobody, never had any purpose, I'm just a,
Nobody, never had any purpose,
So I ventured through the desert and I followed The Serpent (The Serpent),
Nobody never has any purpose, I'm thinking,
Nobody never has any purpose, I'm thinking,
Nobody ever has any purpose,
So we follow The Serpent (The Serpent).

Lights dimming, no physics and no feeling
Floating through the mist still weighed down by cold demons,
Through the basement, freedom tasting but evil seeing,
Sitting on the throne, in home, new supreme being.
Fire burning, no water and no returning,
Turn around now see dark clouds and closed curtains,
So worthless, til I found the New Order,
First comes meaning and then horror with no borders.
Wanna fight the power just to be the lieutenant,
Wanna give up following your dreams and never see the new era,
Was living steady more than plenty still was missing your purpose,
But couldn't seem to find the answers in the things that you purchased.
Got a job you got a future but you really got nothing,
That new bonus and diploma should at least just mean something,
Making deals and popping pills to fill the void in your stomach,
Follow The Serpent through the sand so you can have this discussion (discussion)...

Nobody, never had any purpose I'm just a,
Nobody, never had any purpose I'm just a,
Nobody, never had any purpose,
So I ventured through the desert and I followed The Serpent (The Serpent),
Nobody never has any purpose, I'm thinking,
Nobody never has any purpose, I'm thinking,
Nobody ever has any purpose,
So we follow The Serpent (The Serpent).

Running, dreaming, thinking bout the things that you wanted,
Wanna go back to being normal this success has you haunted,
Had made a deal it's been fulfilled and yet you still feeling empty,
Even though around the town you now the one that they envy.
Wonder was it my own my choice or is just the condition?
Cause I see Serpents left and right and lines way out in the distance,
Serpents in the Middle East and Serpents in the cathedrals,
Some Serpents lead you to the bank some Serpents lead to the needle.
Back when I was just kid had no desire to make it,
Just wanted to play N64 with three CDs in rotation.
Give me a keyboard and some sheets and you just lost me for hours,
Come home from school, try to figure out the way to beat Bowser.
I had a mind but had no pride, had no lust for attention,
Play outside come home and eat a modest meal in the kitchen.
Thinking back it seems as though I had a life to be envied,
Til wrathful Serpents in they greed would come along and convince me I'm just a...

Nobody, never had any purpose I'm just a,
Nobody, never had any purpose I'm just a,
Nobody, never had any purpose,
So I ventured through the desert and I followed The Serpent (The Serpent),
Nobody never has any purpose, I'm thinking,
Nobody never has any purpose, I'm thinking,
Nobody ever has any purpose,
So we follow The Serpent (The Serpent).
