Verse 1
Hanging from my very first sun and my very last moon
There's a pendulum swinging splitting my days in two:
Here and now,
Came and went
So I nickel-dime the knick of time until I'm all spent
'Til the top-half of my hour glass runs out of sand,
I'm catching minutes by the second like it's tick-tock sleight of hand
I'm funneling seconds to miles and son'ing sun dials
'Til Father Time turns around and calls me Dad
Time is relative
Cousin to memory
Governed by perceptions of cyclical melodies
You can save time, kill time, make time, waste time
have a great time -- all at the same time
But I make sure I'm maxin out my face time
If there's an after-life I'm sure there's a long wait in line
To clock back and cross the great divide
So I'm tasting every single moment taking my time
Jelani the MC:
I move, you move keep it right on time
Could be two steps ahead but a second behind
I move
You move
Is time controlling you or you in control of your time? (2x)
Verse 2
We living in intervals, integrated with
Information the clock has indicated
That I am late for my interview
Fuck it I'm telling fate she can wait
Cause I'll be damn if I'm forced leave the table without me scraping my plate
We all quantatize minds in the eye of clock
Synchronizing our rhyme try to thicken divine plots
Now I'm Looking for my stitch in this time
Before mine stops
Cause it's all just a flick of the wrist to God's watch
For losing my visceral grip
And time stops
Like which one is the shepherd and which is the livestock
Sun groove to the metronome
Click. Now bow down to the almighty measuring stick
That goes tick tick
Welcome to the Terrordome bitch
Now move quick
Like keeping me sequentially drunk as truth shifts
But that noose doesn't fit, your confines don't define me
Watch how quick I slip, go ahead you can time me

Verse 3
I close my eyes for a moment and an hour is gone,
Mesmerized by a playlist of favorite songs,
I close my eyes for an hour and it's only been a minute,
Bored behind belief in a meeting that won't finish.
I feel a pawn when dictated by external limits
and stuck doing the same routines.
Runnin' around, steady sweatin' my entrances,
when asked whether I'm stressed (who me?)
It's all relative really, perception is king
Strictly enforcing time is an efficiency thing
Human experience, inherently subjective
Is not subject to an alarm clock ring.
Years ago, dinosaurs died in tar-pits
This year? We're talking commercial starships
Can you feel the disconnect?
The enormity of change is poorly reflected by our intellect.

Dollar Coffee Brooklyn, New York

A double-shot of hip-hop for the soul. A freshly brewed pot of body-rocking goodness. As if orchestrated by the gods of rhyme, the meeting of Brooklyn transplants BS and Albert Rhymestein was indeed the work of fate. Rooted in a mutual love for hip-hop, they began collaborating together in early 2010. Talk of a short EP quickly grew into Dollar Coffee and the debut full-length album "Nice Things". ... more
