about

its about doing art for art's sake, whether any one hears it or comments on it. The joy that is felt in the creation out weighs the pain of being unheard. I am a poet even though I don't use words very creatively and there is a shortage, I hate using words other people already used. Except no one would understand me otherwise.

lyrics

I am an UNKNOWN ARTIST
A poet with a WORD SHORTAGE
A PROFIT ILLITERATE writer with a broken pencil
trying to explain a complicated situation
Maybe I'm not an artist I'm a laborer
It takes too long to get it right
months before I complete my paintings
weeks before I finish a song
I write songs for no one and so what? and so on
Here now I'll perform one just like a vagabond
I find there is no need for an audience
Sometimes I write beautiful songs
and throw them away
I do this for the ones who are so ignorant
I am an unknown artist
My expressions and words being personally symbolic
influenced by habitat, being a diplomat and all that
A poet
Sometimes I write beautiful songs
I do this for the ones
Who are not so ignorant
A poet with this short message
I am an unknown artist
