Malaki – A New Normal
A new dawn, a new day arose
A fools pawn with a slip on soul
Life flicks with a switch and a flint
Dry lips, anxious or at least I’ve been told,
Shit. Repetition as the day unfolds
Repertoire is decisions of a scar that moulds, you.
Sun up, shut up, they told you
This was your way,
A new normal, but that’s another day
Sun retracts as the night unfolds
Summers back but your spine turns cold
“Son relax” through a voice on your phone
Lovers crack through the glass you control
But how do you control when your minds alone.
Same shit, different day
Or is it, some shit that’s gets in your way
Isolated, stay at home, stick to what you know
Reinstated, dark tones, I fiddle through my dome.
Belittled on a velodrome
I cycle on the stone
I like when I’m alone
But my boredom seems to grow
A new normal for some
But for me, it’s all I’ve ever known.
