Lyrics

[First Verse]

I used to live in this efficiency with mold in the closet
Where the, windows would leak
It was expensive, gross, and toxic
It was hard for my soul to profit
Til’ one day Mrs. Peggy told me
I’d been a good tenant and another apartment was opening
I couldn’t believe it. Unit - E? Off MLK?
A real one bedroom with no leaks?
Where else would I stay?
Life was great
Til' it fell apart then I went on tour
What I found shocked me when
I turned my back and shut the door 
(because…)


[Chorus]

I really thought I knew brewing coffee in Unit - E
Wildly in love, creating music in a tree
But I guess I had to leave those walls to truly see
Unit - E is in my human. It’s Movemint. It’s being free
At least I believe
There’s no one clueless as he or she
With nowhere new to be
Brand new views are key
Comfort kills get moving, don’t groove exclusively
To what you’ve always known, just try it once…
Get foot loose and leave


[Second Verse]

I know it sounds kind of silly, but I thought I was the man
Apartment, job, girlfriend… now I understand
She had to leave for me to be with my one and only
There's nothing like sleepin’ in a box truck
When you’re far from home and lonely
I didn’t even know me
I met me in Mississippi
Freestyling with Burton. It’s for certain
That this shit hit me 
repeatedly
From Lake Charles, Beaumont, to Baton Rouge
Scatter Box’s Boston kitchen to those tattered thrifted shoes
It’s like I’d been renewed
And was simply bursting with purpose
A lowly worm saw his underground work nurture the surface
The Earth is my church and with every breath I’m in service
I’m glad that when I hit the dirt, I kept up my searches


[Chorus]

Because I really thought I knew brewing coffee in Unit - E
Wildly in love, creating music in a tree
But I guess I had to leave those walls to truly see
Unit - E is in my human, it’s Movemint. It’s being free

I found it… playing Dreamers Anthem in Birmingham
I found it… In conversations with a certain California fan
I found it… I found it that crazy day in Philly
I found it at 1520 Sedgwick Ave. in New York City


[Final Verse]

On Valentines Day
When I was walking through the snow in the freezin’ season
Just to see Hip Hop’s birthplace
This movement is what I believe in
I was reading about the South Bronx
On location, not far from the Shaolin Swamps
When I caught my first glimpse at the colossal injustice
I’m inspired by the way that Hip Hop just topples and crushes
Babylon’s machine. This music displaces power
I used to rap in my old apartment
But now I just rap way louder
