The Whole Show

from Meta Verse by Ultraklystron

lyrics

v1.
College radio play before I started high school
Overseas airplay let my ego fly too
Got that far with no promo or press kits
No agent or manager to focus and test it
No videos or memes on which to go viral
All instrumental but still felt vital
Scammers in the email tried to hustle me
Imagine how far I'd've gone sans anxiety

Could had my music in pornos at just 15
Instead I wrote a 16 about all my sick dreams
Every win demonstrating I'm better
I'm over being bitter, no quitter, but a getter
I combined lanes folks said weren't compatible
Derided and ignored as another Seattle fool
But honed a diverse set of skills into battle tools
Quiet like I'm neutral but really fuckin radical

ch. (x2)
Is it work though, is it jokes though
Movin backwards? Ah, never me bro
From the first light, til the dirt flows
All I do's me, that's the whole show

v2.
Other people flailing, failing because they're waiting
Only think that green bays are fit for their sailing
Even in my stormiest seas I stayed creating
Throne came naturally with no abdicating
Automated drudgery so faves are made easily
I did that with my homie because he believed in me
So as a postscript we programmed and post scripts
Giving animators worldwide a bold uplift

Many dropped on bandcamp with more to come
Was in 2 films about Nerdcore when I was young
Produced a track & got a million views on YouTube
& that's not my job, that's only my hobby dudes
Get 6 figures writing web apps, remoting
No rent now; it's a mortgage; yes I'm boasting
Took my time with it all, seemed like coasting
But when a virgin took off, he was space ghosting

end.
Many folks pop but they never maintain
Focused on the metrics, their art's constrained
I could hate everything that I do tomorrow
& still get a 10 out of 10 from my sorrow
