from the fourth estate by Ultraklystron



by Karl Olson

Dissonance with the glow
Dissonance with the show
Dissonance with the flow
Is why I'll never go pro
Dissonance with the pack
Dissonance with the fact
Dissonance that I lack
Is why I'll never come back

No sync / zero / No ratio
Never / get play / on radio

I can't seem to find a place / in this geek hierarchy
Everyone is at a distance / it all feels like malarkey
Everybody has a space / like a puzzle piece to fit
But I feel some resistance / but it's not like I can quit
To opt out now would be cowardly / I wanna be the hero
But right now I feel like / I'm at sync-ratio zero
I can't even rap my lyrics / I can't even say my name
And I'm wrecking first impressions / I'm destroying all my fame

And some say they like to sign me / but they can't be serious
Maybe it's just my self-loathing / but I think they're delirious
I mean my rhymes are too niche / I'm more rejected than quiche
I'm the whackest and dated / call me MC Microfiche
And people trying to be nice / saying "no you're so great"
Is something that I dislike / something I might even hate
So I'd rather you loath me / And tell me that I suck
Without that correction / how can I fix my luck?


And I never shut up / I'm super-over-verbose
Stressing people so much / their veins get varicose
This assumes that they're listening / or giving a care
Instead of fixing their make up / or combing their hair
It's a facade of niceness / it's not easy to break
I don't want any comfort / so please stop being fake
If I'm ultra-pathetic / Then please don't take pity
If my ego's too massive / Destroy it like cities

Hit by natural disasters / or the occasional gojira
Or transcendentalist mutants / like Tetsuo or Akira
I'd rather be devastated / Than artificially inflated
I Don't want the false hope / because it's very overrated
I'd rather have tough love / and disrespect to my face
So I can understand / when I act without grace
I know it's draconian / and immensely overt
But I'm fairly ignorant / and thus not easy to hurt
