May Your Pen Grace the Page
'May Your Pen Grace the Page', written and performed by Luka Lesson. May your pen grace the page at the same pace as your brain May your grey matter From now on No longer be grey May you mean every word that you say And may writing your lines Be the way that you pray Get up Step up Never let up Get your setup Set up Get recording Get stories pouring Ignoring your calling and calling you ‘boring’ Is boring You need to be touring What are you doing - you’re basically stewing No space for day dreaming No place for that feeling No place for pacing the building or facing the ceiling There’s no way that it is dealing Your brain it is stealing And there will be no change to you And there’ll never be any change to that ceiling I’m basically feeling that art isn’t hard What's hard is your heart And it starts in the past, but the past’s in the past So love who you are Pass a rush of blood till your arteries blast And let the blood rush to your arm and let your artistry start May your pen express upon the page every feeling you’re in May your white page – Yang Love your black pen – Yin May the ball in your ball point roll ‘cause that’s the point of the ball And if we can’t make our points then what’s the point of it all? May the lead in your lead-pencil lead you astray We spell it L-E-A-D ‘cause we’ve made leaders this way And I know it’s hard but easy to say But I mean what I say When I say: “Mean what you say” Potentially my pencil be the deftest thing you’ve ever seen Adept at expressing everything that you’ve never seen Especially when you question me My pencil, man, she gets to me She comes to me and comforts me and takes me out to lunch You see We have a cup of coffee Before I know it she’s on top of me She rocking and she’s rolling me We’re touching uncontrollably She likes to switch the roles on me I'm writing with her But she is writing with me It's my life as I desire to be It’s only right that she’s my wife 2B She takes me to her bed of white We try it in the dead of night Pages till we get it right We make love between the sheets May your pen grace the page at the same pace as your brain May your grey matter From now on No longer be grey May you mean every word that you say And may writing your lines be the way that you pray
