From the recording Machine Learning

u can’t hide is an anthem for those who are alienated and held down by society. Prosperity and social status favors people who are white, male, extroverted and cis-gendered. This means all other groups have to work harder just to do the basics. And all other groups have to live with the fact that it will be almost impossible for them to rise to the top. This song explores the perspective of those marginalized groups.

you know you can’t hide
I know you are in there
I’m gonna reach in right now
and grab you out of thin air

you know you can’t hide
I know this place
better than john glenn
knows outer space

can you rap over anything?
how about a funeral dirge
create an adrenaline surge
of the introspective urge that’s about to emerge

is it possible to retaliate but elevate
and at the same time also relate
and try to escalate the good
and alienate the bad remove the sad and the mad

I’m trying to add not subtract
and to pack in more impact when attacked
not just react or retract or crack when smacked

none of this is easy, just trying to be me
never been too greedy, too needy,
but nothing or nobody has ever freed me, or needed me, or even read to me when I was a baby

you know you can’t hide
I know you’re in there
I’m gonna reach in some time
and grab you out of thin air

but I’m still trying to get someone to see the real me (doctor, mama, preacher), whatever
but I don’t think I even see myself right
still a constant fight and I’ve been up all night

just thinking, doing a little drinking trying to keep my head from shrinking and my mood from sinking too far deep, too far gone, too steep

cause that’s not right, you got to fight it,
you got to think of bright lights despite of the dark night
I guess you always got to have your shit together

like the people I see on TV, or social media and streaming. it’s multimedia, not schizophrenia, or academia, it’s money, it’s beauty
it’s cruelty
just shoot me

you know you can’t hide,
I know you are in there

day by day, hour by, hour feels like the wrong people get the power, this is their hour and they trying to devour instead of empower they are sociopaths want you to cower to their supposed might

your plight, your fight, your struggle just to do anything right. It’s twice as hard to do anything, I ain’t lying. get pulled over for just driving. On your way to work.

And 10 times more likely to get into trouble for no reason and be beaten by a cretin who’s protected by their chieftain for no good reason other than to defeat and weaken keep the balance uneven

It’s a lesion on society, adds to our anxiety, hurts our sobriety
It takes us all down, everyone is effected when people are neglected, unfairly rejected and arrested instead of invested in and protected

we are all connected, you can’t target a group and not impact the whole it don’t work like that.
the world’s too small, we are all together
that won’t change forever

you know this
you know I’m not playing

and you know you can’t hide,
I know you’re in there
I’m gonna reach in right now
and grab you out of thin air

you know you can’t hide
