Revisit: Day 1 Day 2

The ‘LIT’ Album Experience

LIT is a ‘lyrical remix’ album where I take mainstream pop and hip hop songs that have an amazing sound and style (but leave a lot to be desired in terms of lyrical content), and I infuse them with my own original, spiritually-conscious lyrics.

My Lyrical Remix – “Drop It”




The Lyrics

[Intro]
Ay, yo, check this out right here, ay yo,
It goes it E-G-O, yo,
E-G-O, yo, check this out right,

[Verse 1]
You do you, and imma do me,
Cuz I’m number one, that’s how it’s gotta be,
D to the T to the A what’s that mean?
Don’t trust anybody, hey,
My team is just M-E, I dropped the T-A,
I’m the star of the show, that’s just how I play,
Y to the O to the L to the O yeah you only live once,
Other suckas got to go, oh,
This is an E-G, of your E-G-O, K-O,
Man it’s knockin’ out your soul, whoa!
Keeps insisting, this thing’s persisting,
You try resisting, but it never quits see,
It’s your ego, A-K-A,
The insistent self, and it’s working all day,
But that is not your true I-D, see,
So drop it like it’s hot if you a true O-G, ay!

[Hook]
What is evil?
That’s that Ego, drop it, drop it,
Self deceitful,
That’s your ego, drop it, drop it,
Soul’s asleep oh,
Hey dawg, I think it’s time to wake up…
Prison of self that’s the greatest prison,
So stop and drop the ego, if you wanna be free yo!

[Verse 2]
You aint no good, aint no point in even trying,
D.I.Y? Hah, why you lying to yourself,
FYI, boy, think you really need some help,
You aint nothing but a big ole L,
O-S to the E-R, should take you to the E-R,
I think you lost your mind, your life is sadder than Eeyore,
And you will never be more, than pitiful, pathetic,
You ain’t nothin but a failure, don’t you get it?
This is part of you E-G-O,
It’s your lower nature and it’s killing your soul,
D-I-E, ie, R-I-P, me vs. me, can’t you see?
That your ego is the enemy,
Take that energy flip it over to your inner me,
Let it shine reflecting divinity,
Give your soul up to the G-O-D, hey,

[Hook]
What is evil?
That’s that ego, drop it, drop it,
Self deceitful,
That’s your ego, drop it, drop it,
Soul’s asleep oh,
Check that ego, drop it,
Prison of self that’s the greatest prison,
So stop and drop the ego, if you wanna be free yo!

[Verse 3]
Listen up, K? N-O to the double you,
That’s how you K-N-O-W the true you,
That’s the answer to the puzzle you’ve been trying to solve that troubles you, ooo,
Human beings, physical plus spiritual,
When we subtract the spiritual we become egotistical,
And that is just despicable, a wayward individual,
But thank God it is fixable, that’s what I spit these lyrics for,
So, feed your S-O-U-L,
Without it U is left feeling S-O-L,
Not talking ‘bout the sun, spirit covered in veils,
When ego prevails, that’s the prison of self,
E-V-I-L, I’m not talking ‘bout Satan,
It’s when you drop your soul and your ego is awakened,
Keep the former, drop the latter, or you will be sorry kids,
Life without the soul is H-E-Double hockey sticks,

[Hook]
What is evil?
That’s that ego, drop it, drop it,
Self deceitful,
That’s your ego, drop it, drop it,
Soul’s asleep oh,
Check that ego, drop it,
Prison of self that’s the greatest prison,
So stop and drop the ego, if you wanna be free yo!

[Outro]
“Today, all the peoples of the world are indulging in self-interest and exert the utmost effort and endeavour to promote their own material interests. They are worshipping themselves and not the divine reality, nor the world of mankind..”

Elevated Conversation

Based on today’s lyrical remix, here’s some questions for reflection:

1) What seems to trigger your “ego” in your day-to-day life?
2) What strategies have you found to be most effective in keeping your lower nature in check and living in your higher nature?

The “ego” is something I know we ALL struggle with! Even the kindest, most sweet people that you know have to deal with their lower nature every single day. It’s part of being human! Please take a few minutes to share your wisdom below! If someone else’s response stimulates more thoughts, don’t hesitate to respond to others as well. I’ll be sure to leave my reflections too!
