Thieves In The Night
Before I drop some new Mos Def over the weekend, I wanted to go back to a classic from Blackstar. This song is all about the power of our ego and how it holds us back from our true nature. We’re all slaves of our ego and it sucks!
Here’s my favorite verse (also the chorus) from the song:
we only licensed
not compassioniate, only polite
now who the nicest?
not good but well behaved
chasin after death
So we can call ourselves brave?
still livin like mental slaves
hidin like thieves in the night from life
Illusions of oasis makin you look twice
