Music Prompt #9 “The Beigeness” performed by Kate Tempest

Hi Everyone 😀

If Sylvia Robinson and Allen Ginsberg would have had a musical ove-child, this week’s artist would have been it. Kate Tempest‘s style is both arrogant and vulnerable keeping poetry as her sword and shield.  You may love or hate her style, but spirit reigns and pushes right on through all the noise of the world.

[Verse 1] 
Who’s bad? Said the the kiddy in the Jacko hat 
To the kiddy in the Rooney shirt 
Dragging back 
The curtains in the room in her daddy’s flat 
A young girl heard the truth in an alley-cat 
Howling on the roof next door 
Imagine that 
All your idols were just like you 
Nothing’s beyond you 
Do what you want to do if you feel that it wants you to 
Look 
True never meant nothing more than it means right now 
When everything’s fake 
But you in your deepest reaches keeping secrets 
Know what it takes to make a meaning means something 
I’m moving through a space that some can’t see 
I know this space exists 
So do you if your heart beats the oldest groove 
Life is huge but we have shrunk it 
We’ve made it small 
We used to walk tall 
But who cares, right? 
We’re having a ball 
 
[Hook] 
Them things you don’t show, I can see 
Them things you don’t say, speak to me 
Them things you hide ain’t hiding 
No firm ground but we ain’t sliding 
 
Them things that haunt you, let them be 
That thing you weep for, leave it 
 
All life is forwards, you will see 
It needs you to need it 
 
[Verse 2] 
Go ahead, keep it in ‘til it withers you 
Move fast, don’t stop, you got things to do 
Tell yourself, it’s them man it isn’t you 
Nod your head and believe that until it’s true 
You can tell it not to show its face 
When you are trying to hold your space 
But it’s in you deep in your sinews 
And it comes out on the coldest days 
 
See the kid with the memory he can’t shake 
See the man with the lover on his mind 
See the lady with the guilt and the heartache 
See the woman trying to battle with time 
See the man with the blood on his hands 
See the girl with her hands on her hips 
Everybody say nothing. Stay bland 
If you don’t show it then it don’t exist 
Right? 
 
[Hook] 
Them things you don’t show, I can see 
Them things you don’t say, speak to me 
Them things you hide ain’t hiding 
No firm ground but we ain’t sliding 
 
Them things that haunt you, let them be 
That thing you weep for, leave it 
 
All life is forwards, you will see 
It’s yours when you’re ready to receive it 
 
[Verse 3] 
You’re so focused on finding the differences 
You ignore the bonds that bind us 
Got my hand on my heart when the rhythm hits 
It’s looking for us but can’t find us 
In the valley of vanity, viciousness 
Full schedules and empty containers 
We’re kissing the coshes that cripple us 
Enjoying the Beigeness 
Do it your way and they’ll find you ridiculous 
Pick apart your behaviour 
Their scorn ignites what inhibits us 
And then we hate ourselves 
And our fear pickles us 
Sitting in jars ‘cause it’s safer 
Some of us are happy to live with it 
But some of us know it’s against our nature 
 
[Hook] 
Them things you don’t show, I can see 
Them things you don’t say, speak to me 
Them things you hide ain’t hiding 
No firm ground but we ain’t sliding 
 
Them things that haunt you, let them be 
That thing you weep for, leave it 
 
All life is forwards, you will see 
It’s yours when you’re ready to receive it 
 
All life is forwards you will see [12x]
