Verse 1 Whatever happened to the 80’s Sitting in a flat top car chillin with ladies Listening to the synth and the electric drum When the air was cleaner the motors hum, man With neon bright clothes it was crazy Music really meant something and wasn’t just lazy 88 miles per hour caught up to the past Even back then they knew it wouldn’t last Bridge 1 I’m stuck in the time where I’m gonna stay I just wish I was living in a different decade Welcome to a time, that’s no time at all History on the phone, answer the call Going through those things that you already know Come on everybody time to get retro Verse 2 The 80’s came and went into that goodnight Then the era of the 90’s took the flight Gangsta Rap and grunge took the title Flannel and Guns wielded their by idols Labels putting together the next big thing Didn’t matter if you had talent or could even sing You just were, and that started a precedent With ghostwriters and autotune settin it That’s when the fire started burning into now If you ever really XXXXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXXX X XXXXXXX XX X XXXXX XXXXXXXX XX XXXX XX XXX XXXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX X XX XXXXXXX XX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX X XXXXXXX XX X XXXXX XXXXXXXX XX XXXX XX XXX XXXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XX XXX XXXXX

Art of love

By Awuah-Mainoo Gabriel

This composition is to establish the fact that there’s nothing like a perfect being. Love is based on complete acceptance and contentment. Two perfect (same likes) things repel, even if there is perfection it is somewhat to an extent. After all it is two different things that always attract.

Daisy Chains

By Tim Wightman

I remember writing this a few years back and being in complete awe of it, something not normal for me. I think because it's an abstract painting of my childhood.
