Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket

Emotionless this city lies
Cruel it is, it clouds my eyes
The dull, the dark
Shades on my day
I live inside this play

Locked up inside my metal cage
Always tense and filled with rage
Above the concrete fields below
With you I wanna go, wanna go

Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket

I see only what I wanna see
I’ll be only what I wanna be
yeah-ah
My blanket covers me, yeah

Yeah (check it)
Now as a human I was party-poppin, breakin on the lino
Traded in my lino for a pad and a biro
Used to stand in line just so as I could sign my giro
But now my ends are meetin’ in the best way that I know
Tk Tss Ksh and the beast that goes BOOM
See the music I consume to escape the doom and gloom
All the beats and melodies they keep realities at bay
But what happen when the record drummin’ start to fade away

Alone within myself again
I try to veil away my pain
The dirty grey surrounding me ’round
And now I hear no sounds…

I feel like Melly Mel from way back in the days
As I wonder how I keep from going under
I got trouble on my mind like my name is Chuck D
And like Marvin Gaye it makes me wanna holler
But when the music hits me
I feel no pain
That’s why I got to put you on again and again
I take the needle off the Technics
And put it in my vein
All my troubles get crushed
As the rush hits my brain
And away .. goes .. trouble.. down the drain

I see only what I wanna see
I’ll be only who I wanna be
yeah-ah, yeah-ah
My blanket covers me

Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket

I see only what I wanna see
I’ll be only who I wanna be
yeah-ah, yeah-ah
My blanket covers me

Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket

You are my living world
You are my living world
You are you are you are my
My only living world….
