Pressed On | Skiplines – RXMT

Pressed On | Skiplines – RXMT

Had a very late night / early morning yesterday.  In preparing for some client deliverable I multi-tasked a new poem titled Pressed On.

Pressed On : RXMT

Pressed on is the first track of the beat poet mix-tape RXMT.  RXMT is short for Prescription Mix-Tape and includes the most recent and fresh material I’ve written.  It’s been complicated getting this far and establishing my alter-ego interpersonal identity, Skiplines.
Skiplines is the pseudo name for my beat poet character.  RXMT includes many tracks following the theme of loosing family by mistakes and errors of the way referencing my personal experiences in life as a son, brother, father and husband.  Most of the references to this theme reflect loosing my son and wife.
RXMT or Prescription Mix-tape is a pensive collection of poems written for beat instrumentals and recorded as a rap.  I don’t consider myself a “rapper” but rather a beat poet.

Track List – RXMT I

  1. Pressed On
  2. Error of My Wayward Ways
  3. Bad Guy
  4. Family Proof
  5. The War
  6. Family Planning
  7. Breath Taking

Pressed On MP3 & Lyrics

Direct Link to MP3

lets try to change the subject but that the problem at hand I haven’t any other standing chances get my mind often off it launched outter spaced out at heights with God but see it all in the moment forgot hope I’m not forgot forget me not gone
I have no other lines to write so don’t tell me shut up about it run up rather help me not marshal mathers and burn this bitch down
I’m inclined to start fires outside or indoors or outright upside down around it all fall down and twisted in knots while burning if off the dross the cost of saving it off the walls and into the floor
like I nailed all my limbs to the thorn all my kidneys are gone fluids are off
balanced with a wobble like ya wiggle with a big fat butt
nickle and dimed and done primed and spun off into the distance across the suns set it sets up then sets the sunset over the horizon where
HOOK
I know them dreams keep one size ten ahead of me to the death of me but I can’t rearrange these or change the subject so please excuse the mess or step off while I press on pressed on – x2
v2
I had to stop work to start work one dollar a word but I can’t write for the life of me the mind of these in lines of being cascaded styles and hypertext I need these rhymes to express directly reflect correct or feeling correctly
kneeling subjected killing the reckless run with Edward scissor hands with electric pants on fire lying my ass off about the where I did what I been there it is opened wide open hoping what is gone be temporary
the chance to prove it would never happen again
two sheets? I got a mattress and box-spring to the wind
who me? A box of matchsticks and a friend
who’s he?
calling on Him all the time I’m in thought and when I’m not that I am not confused at all of God I know not what I know or don’t know and who’s business is it anyway just a bunch of words I play with word play like day with birthdays and fade with the age granted where I make where
HOOK
I know them dreams keep one size ten ahead of me to the death of me but I can’t rearrange these or change the subject so please excuse the mess or step off while I press on pressed on – x2
v3
It’s my own this life I’ve grown this kind only known to survive what don’t kill me make black holes swallow light back hoes digging right at those write my poems heart wide open open wide try open
heart surgery learning the hurt in me hurting these missing persons deserving me no person of interest with them
there’s no blame and little to say about how I behaved – behave – enraged in rage – engage in save the date we didn’t plan on it but there I was in flames burning down them days embers down to shades grayed out is how that played out make out the bad guy the sad guy the down on his luck is shit my pride right about everything I’m blind about everything confound everything confounded by everything redundancy everything everything everything a causuality repeat – that’s casualty repeat skip on skip on skip on repeat where
HOOK
I know them dreams keep one size ten ahead of me to the death of me but I can’t rearrange these or change the subject so please excuse the mess or step off while I press on pressed on – x4
 

Mix-tape Release

There are currently two parts of RXMT which will be released as separate albums keeping with the theme.  RXMT I & II are the complete mix-tape.
RXMT I is themed after the reality of being someone I’m not, struggling with the loss of my son and wife.  Part I of the mix-tape addresses my son and his mother as it relates to the mistakes and loss of their presence in my life today.

Skiplines : Mantra

The name and title skiplines is taken from the style of my writing, often finishing one thought on a word that is also used to begin the next.  It also reflects my propensity for instant gratification by means of rushing into situations where I am inadequately prepared to act responsibly and sensibly.
