Sell Out.

I hear it every time the radio plays.
And every time I do, I have to hide my rage.
I keep my feelings down inside my eyes.
I don't insult your music, yet you sh*t on mine.
I don't care how much money you spent on rings.
I could care less about the cost of your bling.
Hip-hop sells everything in sight.
Just another reason why I don't sleep at night.

This is my enemy.
It's not the way to be.
Sell-outs are all the same.
So sell out.
So sell out.

I grew up hard-knocked without a cent.
You blow your cash so fast, it doesn't make sense.
25 grand for your dog?
Just ‘cause you can afford it doesn't mean that it's not wrong.

This is my enemy.
It's not the way to be.
Sell-outs are all the same.
So sell out.
So sell out.

Words are priceless, I won't let them rot.
You say diamonds are forever, well so are rocks.
Want me to sell my soul for gold?
An empty body decays, is worth as much as mold.

This is my enemy.
It's not the way to be.
Sell-outs are all the same.
So sell out.
So sell out.
Try to sell me out.

There's a thin fine line between hate and rage.
Now watch the line be crossed and break!

Very nice song, I like the feeling in it, a nice kind of post-grunge bitterness. And I like the take on modern pop/R'n'B/hiphop situation too.... excess money doesnt buy taste or class! Overall i liked it a lot.... I'm not really qualified to judge songs, im pretty new to this, so nothing technical... All I can say is i like what I see!

Cheers,

Rob

Hi Pierson

I like the song it flows just wonderfully .... the only thing I suggest as far as changing would be to drop the amount of "I" in it ..... the first verse starts with "I" 5 times

I read this over and over and if you drop the amount of " I" to the first line then it seems to be alot better

Just my old opinion

L.K

Aghhhh

Not only am I a senior citizen

I can see that. Yeah, dropping the "I"s does make it flow better, and it gives it more character (in a distorted type of way.) Thanks for the advise.

I was also thinking of changing the name of the song to something less specific. Any ideas?
