about

The first single from Maulskull, taken from his upcoming self produced E.P "Un-amazing Grace", due for release in 2013 from the dungeon labs of the Black Mask!!


"The Eye".... We have all gotten it, we have all given it to others. Its amazing how a simple look or a moment of eye contact, combined with facial expressions and a vibe, can often expose an individual's true intentions, whether positive or negative. This song is for anyone who is constantly feeling "the eye" of judgement staring them down everyday, whether it be because of race, appearance, religion, sexual orientation, political association or even just no reason at all. ALL of us; unconventional, tattooed, would-be-artistic, addicted, jobless, dropout, gay, lesbian, mixed, uneducated, oversexed, overstimulated, uninspired youth that they so valiantly label, judge and discredit everyday, are actually the youth they chose to raise, groom, bully and prepare for a future of cleaning up their debts, pollution, wars and hatred. So while we grow, learn, succeed, unite and clean up the messes they have made, they will still be "eyeing" us from their nursing homes and mansions, never knowing that we changed the world. The youth will always be poisoned... knowledge is the anti-venom...

VERSE ONE:

I'm just a granule of sand, flying through the desert with no manual or plans as I'm riding through the measures in a gradual advance while you're hiding from the devils 'cause the actually dance and you tried to come to settle but you naturally can't when your mind is undeveloped and it casually slants I think it's time you wanna tell them that you had your only chance but inside your fuckin jealous and irrationally stand its like you're made of stone, head in the rain you're staying patient while you wait alone, spreading the pain and breaking faces cause' you hate your own, peddling shame and laying basic in your danger zone, my warriors already played you should have stayed at home instead of bringing a sword to a pen fight when my pen's writing the score to your "end life" in a poem, I'm 'a slice you with no knife, just the mic that I hold tight in the hopes that I might find you enlightened and grown...

CHORUS:

I know you think that ship won't sink and you pull them down by any means, and I know you think you're everything but you're nothing, so why you giving me the eye?
I know you think that ship won't sink and you pull them down by any means, and I know you think you're everything but you're nothing, so why you giving me the eye?

VERSE TWO:

I'm just a particle of dust, resting on the pages in your articles of trust where your questions and your phrases are the barnacles and rust and your skeleton is waiting for that harder bone to clutch, and you tell them it's amazing when your heart is full of cuts so you sell it instead of save it and started to sew it up, it's a hell of a way to take it and guard it with all your blood just to dwell in the same arrangement, departed from all you love, so I guess that I'll wait to grow up, I haven't learned how to hate the ones who I love just to love who I hated so much, I aint' afraid of your bloody razors and old cut spaces in ugly places waiting for you to show up, so try it, and I don't care if you decided with your eyes that I should try to breathe this air that you provided as I stare into your diamonds that were there to keep me blinded by that narrow minded box and now I bury YOU inside it with the eye...

CHORUS:

I know you think that ship won't sink and you pull them down by any means, and I know you think you're everything but you're nothing, so why you giving me the eye?
I know you think that ship won't sink and you pull them down by any means, and I know you think you're everything but you're nothing, so why you giving me the eye?

VERSE THREE:

Now we carry new divided burdens and wearing through the eyelids searching the areas defined the curtain of barriers to find it burning and there we once collided now I hold you like a prayer and make believe just like that day somebody told you life was fair, it fuckin' isn't, everyone leaves, everyone dies, everyone bleeds, everyone cries, everyone cheats, everyone hides, everyone feeds everyone lies, everyone needs mine, they don't wanna heal, they don't wanna try, they don't wanna deal, they don't wanna rise, they don't wanna meal, they don't wanna buy what they can't steal, they don't wanna fight what they can't feel, I don't wanna live a life if it 'aint real, but I keep living anyway, any day now it'll catch up, so watch that paint peel off the walls of oppressed luck till all that you have is your faith sealed when you get cut, so fall at the hands that created real when you left none, I traded in my feathers for stones and I can't fly, but my wings will shield these letters and poems that I'll stand by, till my fingers feel your flesh when it's cold and I can't hide, 'cause you linger like your breath when its pulled for the last time.

CHORUS:

I know you think that ship won't sink and you pull them down by any means, and I know you think you're everything but you're nothing, so why you giving me the eye?
I know you think that ship won't sink and you pull them down by any means, and I know you think you're everything but you're nothing, so why you giving me the eye?
