14? – when the luster fades lyrics

Loading...

intro: substantial
yeah, substantial, 14? here to do our thing
uh huh, doin it for every nation
yeah, elevation, yeah set it off like this

verse 1: substantial
could be wrong but i think
when you take center stage not a single eye blinks
some forced to squint
in an awkward attempt
to somehow filter your glow
but you know
that the polish of your armor got’em in a trance
colors intertwine with the power of a dance
poetry in motion got’em in a stand still
eyes glaze over, jaws drop like anvils
a feeling you’re wishing that even time can’t k!ll
sorry to inform you but it can and will
so make the most of it
and folks love it
is it the bare essentials
or the bells and whistles
can’t tell initially but what remains
when a fella’s history is it the name
that fades like memories
time will tell
you know that the divine’s design prevails

hook: substantial
when the l+ster fades
will you be a legend or a distant memory
praised by your brethren or a waste of energy
when they reminisce over you
will they front or give you your dues
when the l+ster fades
will you make your mark or be written out of history
stimulate thought or become a nonentity
when they reminisce over you
will they front or give you your dues
when the l+ster fades

verse 2: substantial
we’re running out of time and it’s funny i guess
cause we strive to make something that it is truly timeless
that’ll never tarnish
and maintain it’s beauty
but is that the nature of time?
they say that we got 15 minutes to shine
but it’s all relative
cause 15 minutes can feel like forever if
we don’t believe that time flies
but you that most are blind to the inner minds eye
where people come and go with a blink
and celebrate your memory and toast with a drink
making your exit as their next thought enters
you’ve made your deposit in their memory bank
hoping one day eventually to gain interest
instead of drawing blanks whenever your name’s mentioned
hot today tomorrow you’re cold & lonely
tell me where will these songs be

hook: substantial
when the l+ster fades
will you be a legend or a distant memory
praised by your brethren or a waste of energy
when they reminisce over you
will they front or give you your dues
when the l+ster fades
will you make your mark or be written out of history
stimulate thought or become a nonentity
when they reminisce over you
will they front or give you your dues
when the l+ster fades

bridge: substantial
where will you go (go)
will you be long forgotten by the people you know (know)
when you’ve lost your glow (glow)
no one at the show (show)
and your record stop spinning and you’re feeling real low (low)
(x2)

verse 3: substantial
where will the entourage go?
what will you do if eternal bonds are not so?
how many women stayed when the money got low?
when the fans seen it all, will they scream bravo
or have a moment of silence, minus the reflection
will your records be a valued part of their collection
in a frame on the wall or end up in a dollar bin
will you be forgotten or honored when

hook: substantial
when the l+ster fades
will you be a legend or a distant memory
praised by your brethren or a waste of energy
when they reminisce over you
will they front or give you your dues
when the l+ster fades
will you make your mark or be written out of history
stimulate thought or become a nonentity
when they reminisce over you
will they front or give you your dues
when the l+ster fades
(x2)
