Earn It
by Karl Olson

my album's not even out yet
but I'm already writing my return
verbal pyrokinesis
leaving my old bridges burned

Miss Kazami and Mr. Saari
The teachers from who I learned
That the effort that's spent
Is the intellect and love earned

I'm back once again
nerdcore renegade master
notate my words in
gifs, jpegs and rasters

I overclocked my tongue
so I can speak faster
But I'm still without content
So instead I just blather

10 times cleaner than man
Named Marshall Mathers
Yet I still work word passion
Up into a lather

so behold as nerdcore zealots
come and gather
they rock this track on
IPods and soundblasters

I sit over the back wheels
where the bumps are hardest
on my headphones is
Kool Keith and Scott Hardkiss

Switch on the bass boost
cause it's like catharsis
Slip into cold sleep
Like I'm off Tarsis

I hear the Voice of a Distant Star
And Its My Own
Yet this Keitai Culture
Makes me so feel alone

In this Urban Archipelago
May exist my home
But Across the whole Earth
is Where my spirit roams

This album may seem egotistical
Its stories may seem mystical
But if makes the crowds hysterical
Then my errors are just clerical

Product placement's logistical
Cause my backyard could use a pool
I'd like to get Protools
And my DVD shelves aren't full

I mean sure I get screeners
As a member of the press
But as my budget gets leaner
My purchasing gets repressed

So I'd like to get greener
That fact I confess
So I'd shill vacuum cleaners
To end fiscal stress

Cause the fact of the matter is
I've bought so much anime
I could have bought an A Share
Of Berkshire Hathaway

Or could have had a venti mocha
Every single day
I could have sat around
And gotten "real paid"

Instead I make this nerdcore CD
In my bedroom
Hoping that my fan base
Digs Max Headroom

Cause if they don't like that sample
Over the bass boom
How will I get the cash
to become a forum goon?
