Not Here For The Score

by DeWayne Alston

I'm not here for the score
What I am here for
Is to open your mind
I have the key to open the door
I dont use similes or metaphors
I just want to get inside and fit in between
Those clouded thoughts and those vivid dreams
Introduce you to the things
I've learned from the William Coopers and the Robert Greenes

I'm not here for the score
What I am here for
Is to give you the facts
To expose our true foes
For their irreparable acts
To speak on those who chose
To take their guns off the racks
And fight for a cause
Those rebels without a pause

I'm not here for the score
What I am here for
Is to implore you
Don't just let me open this door for you
I will help you walk through it too
Help you to see the world the way that I do

I'm not here for the score
What I am here for
Is to point out the traps
and wake up those who are taking naps
So keep your snaps
and your scorecard
Save the applause
Better yet... that... you can just discard
Cause that's not what I'm here for
I'm here for something more
