about

"Seven Blocks" is a prelude to the song "Bipolar" which was featured on the "Hope You're Dope" EP. If "Bipolar" was the act, "Seven Blocks" is the preparation.

lyrics

All calm, that's how you gotta be
it doesn't matter what you say, it matters how you spin it.
I'm out here, I'm out here amongst the trees
it doesn't matter what you think, just don't knock the spirit.
And when I get on the bus, she says "alright"
"I'll be downtown in a little bit"
And when I get on the bus, she says "alright"
she wants me to take the pain away.

And maybe you'll hear me come down the block
and maybe you'll listen when I talk.

I'm on the boulevard
I hear the echos of concrete
I'm chilled to the bone
and I've got seven more blocks to go.

Cortland, that's all that I can see
it doesn't matter where you are, it matters where you live it.
And there's a man showing what he got for free
it doesn't matter what you have, it matters how you spend it.
