Aeon Grey

BandHip HopSpoken Word

Aeon Grey delivers a quick-witted testimonial for today's common man. Anchored by an umpteen amount of social commentary and a well balanced view of himself, offering an honest reflection of Midwest life.

Biography

From a modest Mid West upbringing, Aeon Grey has been molded by the cracks of a broken family and a selective education system. Ten years of experience and struggle against the stereotypes of popular hip hop culture, as well as the norms to which Iowans are expected to live by, Aeon Grey continues down the path of self discovery. With no interest in greatness, and no delusions of grandeur, Aeon Grey emerges as nothing more but another 80's baby walking on the broken limbs of humanity with a neuse on his neck, searching for others willing to use the neuse to create a safety net. Grow, build, and create community.

Lyrics

Food Chains

Written By: aeon grey

What makes you nervous fuels discontent
and duels with a merchant fued risk to neck
this connects via serpent skin concepts
shed in the infinite circle and sinking in the convex
(aeon grey) single me out this mounds a sinkhole
bringing dreams down to proud for that wrinkle
in time your pink skull prince doll
rip vanwinkle dreamboat, wait wake up
that's an iceberg not the promised land
your polished granual legacy
doesn't even compare to a handful of beggars dreams
name brand pregnant schemes to birth word
with a fame stamp styrofoam reform bond
can you spare a paycheck
you face death in remote control
nuclear glow on a slave censorship
are you entertained yet
you blame stress in the mold compose
new clear subliminal generation gaps
still chained to bender bliss
begging for coined phrases born cesarean
after the experiments, tell me this
is it that satisfying

I'm a 9 to 5 corporate anthill worker
a 5 to 9 local network channel surfer
a 9 to 6 insomniac watching the clock alarm
a 6 to 9 zombie dressing regrets in a uniform
and thats routine, big fish in a little bowl
a crumb on the foodchains

Sounds Like Metal

Written By: Aeon Grey

stained metal spine sorted citizen design
cyborg eyes cement cornea catarach quarters plus
avenue corners rust, collect dust
alluminum income in rat for rat corporate tunnels
fort knox collared white criminals black bag
poor bots clod recycled gender roles
bottom rung common sponge
commet tongue collapsed lava lung
savage product in economic slumps
rhetoric of god in slums
resonance in garbage dumps
iron clad stomach pumps are
now iron lung fad functions
coat wire third trimester puncture busts
copper womb dumpster
mistress liberty aborted
neocon steel bolted god bible belt
held around the neck of bladerunner baby new year
half nostradamus half asimov
post apocalypse static tadpole animal farm
titanium swine
black and white city's finest
teflon heart with a gloc 9 conscious
uraniam pride with proliferation mindset
jack hammer embrace to sway the spineless
tinted optic tinman product
of a yellow brick fellowship
gelatin organic man skin knock off
teflon flesh the mannequins
the city sounds like metal

stained metal spine sorted citizen design
cyborg eyes cement cornea catarach quarters plus
avenue corners rust, collect dust
This city sounds like metal
tinted optic tinman product
of a yellow brick fellowship
gelatin organic man skin knock off
teflon flesh the mannequins
This city sounds like metal

there' a block in every
city where death blooms
and when a kids day went okay,
he only suffers a flesh wound
he got jacked in the box, it's not his fault
his dad sells crack on the block
getting to school is asking a lot
yes he get's his ass kicked a lot
but now he's packing a gloc
whether it's fashion or not
man his passion is lost
metallic magazine subscription
tucked in textbooks
the daily struggle here corrupts
intellectuals
and we're losing them, glued to a two bit reality
policy makers have no idea whose boots their in
written off as stupid kids,
future soldier recruitment
fuel foreign policy roots
community projects of poverty
experiments, so let's make a martyr
mold claymation patriots of tomorrow
while Playdoh manchurians maintain babylon
a proletariats dirty hands create the path we're on
