The Mainstream

High Knights

Facebook algorithms annoying you? Seeing less of who you know and more of what the mainstream wants you to know? The mainstream used to have its place and wasn’t so embedded in our lifestyles however things have changed. Do you still watch the telly to unwind therefore you open up the floodgates for all the jargon that comes with? You might relate with me on this jam!

The Lyrics

Verse 01

So listen up, when they ever 

gonna listen to us,

I’d rather live life then switch on

 and watch the big brother,

live steaming in fact, the demons 

got us day dreaming on our back,

fiending for that lack of meaning

bunch of scenes made to 

change the way it seems

and get in the way of how it is

and that’s the biz

and they’re busy at it

flipping scripts, twisted tales

marketing sales bending the truth

and the truth it becomes suspicious too

being put in that polluted vessel

that’s vicious by all means

nothing about it is special

not even the adds in between the shows

and it shows there’s a lot of 

hate in this world

believe you me and their taping it all

and edit it what should 

be said and censored

its confusing when your conscious

the general consensus don’t make sense

it can mess with your head

watch yourself not

 the box and what it sells


As I sit on the couch and 

flick between the channels.

The TV wanna put me to sleep.

Dirty water in them channels

 on the mainstream.

Open them eyes and soak it in unwind,

close your mind and relax.

Verse 02

Now as I kick up my feet,

 pick up the remote.

Ease back in my seat and

 I put on a show

to see whats in it for me.

A lot of this I never needed to know

and time I never needed 

to waste or notice.

The doses of hypnosis

aimed to make you docile.

A simulation for the nation

you been numbered for the fun of it

free to air by the government

the media dumbing us down

and telling us who is running this town.

Please I’ve grown wearier

of the so called inferior.

Deliveries of fears straight 

into your interior,

Letting junk get to your

 brain when your not aware

as you sit and stare and

 soak it in and focus

on the sit coms, soap operas, 

old shows again and again

a current affair and bogus offers.

The fading trends of fashion 

then your clothes aren’t matching.


Verse 03

Buy into it, don’t refrain

its called entertainment

comes with nothing to gain

everybody wanna be famous

and sell their name

but stop look and listen

they got you by the brain

in prison, in a box or a zoo

cause its like this

it’s monkey see monkey do

then they got your attention

an they seeing right through you

cause she smiles and you smile

and she drinks and you drink

the same shit and you think

and you think your normal

cause you act the same way

as they do in the portal

where they take you for a ride

once they break your spirit

like a horse and put you

 in the human race course

where they trade in face value

and the lowest common denominator

is being bought by 

a real world terminator

shit you think it respects you

don’t get stupid

channel your energy more efficiently

don’t waste it watching the telly

get to grips with reality.

Verse 01

It was a sunny day, 

I was up at half past 8.

With the world in front of me,

 I wanna go to the beach.

And whats stopping me 

I wanna let go and get high and get by.

I wanna be me.

And I ain’t a no one.

Reading me is like reading a poem.

I see the sea and I want someone

 to see the same in me.

A tear drops from my lashes

 just as a wave crashes,

wondering what really matters.




If I could take away my eyes.

leave my mind behind,

and kiss life goodbye.

No time for giving away, 

No more, no more,

more of the same.



Verse 2

To fly into the universe 

and leave this all behind.

Escape whats wrong and

 drop into the ocean.

Swim into the open sea.

Wash away the weight,

that’s pulling on me. 

Look into the sunset,

It’s simple as life.

Don’t know why I think twice,

why i care if I’m winning in life!

I’m kidding myself,

 I’m digging myself a hole!

I fight the feelings,

I don’t wanna resolve.

I gotta listen to myself 

and let it all unfold.


Verse 03

I got fire, my hearts desire.

Life the one I got,

I want it to take me higher.

I look at the sea,

and I see the same as me.

Freedom a place I wanna flee.

When trouble raises heat,

I wanna hit the beach.

Let go in a flow 

and have a wave carry me.

Times are hard 

and my heart

 just hungers for a beat.

I got power sometimes,

and I cannot release.

I could let go of the bigger picture,

if it won’t let me breath.
