lyrics

dont call me nigger or rapper
my motherfucking name is michael eagle

im sovereign im from a line of
ghetto superheroes

i holler
i got something to bring to your attention

i promise you
i will never fit in your descriptions
im giant
dont let nobody tell you nothing different
they lying
a giant and my body is a building

no services underground
no sound when im
calling home
city broken my brothers down
now im standing here all alone
sun weathered my monochrome
my hollow bones
david bowie told me im not alone
im overgrown with these model homes
still here if its hot or cold
still here if my body move
still standing on cottage grove
still do what i gotta do
stone tablet on stone tablet
im old granite
im not a tomb
yall can move this whole planet
i’ll hold fast and i’ll follow through
i promise you.

they took us to shelters, basements, hallways
early morning sundays, midnight all day
do what the adults say, dont engage in horseplay
people speak in tongues

my other name is 3925
make sure that my story’s told
16 or so stories high
constructed 55 years ago
winter weather yeah here we go
chi town in building code
stood here for 10 million snows
windchill is all in my bones
indivisibile in divisible kids and criminals young and old
no radiator my dungeon cold
thunder humming you something slow
20 down and just one to go
city say they gonna knock me down
still wearing my iron hood
told yall you wont stop me now

they took us to shelters, basements, hallways
early morning sundays, midnight all day
do what the adults say, dont engage in horseplay
people speak in tongues

momma’s in the basement, smoking something
we grew up in hazes, projects, dungeons
graduation luncheons, try to make us something
see what we’d become
