This track delves outside the hip hop realm and engulfs the listener within the sounds of old school Dubstep. It is an oft forgotten sound that, to some inside the Dubstep scene, has been pushed aside in favor of more obtuse rhythms and sounds.
I see all these individuals making strange decisions, but don't know what to make of their actions...
The lyric, 'Did you realize for why this sight belongs to you?' was one I initially misheard as 'Did you realize the world inside belongs to you?'
Following the latter mondegreen, I sought to express the benefits of togetherness and a push or call-to-action for humanity as a whole to cease all the petty squabbles over different beliefs and treat others with the same respect that they receive on a daily basis from all walks of life.
Did you realize for why this sight belongs to you?
Did you realize the world inside belongs to you? (Mondegreen)
