about

I wanted to write a negro spiritual for nomadic cowboys in the future. The refrain of "I was born in 1984" is symbolic of oppressive and intrusive government. Combinations of western movies and hip hop drums and voila..... #retrofuture

lyrics

I was born in 1984, it still feels like 1984

I’m on my way back home, I got my name back home
I had a dame I love, but ain’t a single thing change back home
I gotta make it to the top. I gotta take that home
I gotta make a hundred stops. I gotta make that known
And ain’t nothing funny bout it, gotta break that bone
So I don’t have to take a job just to pay back loans

My dad said when you drop this EP, won’t you please come correct?
Even haters can’t façade like they seem unimpressed
If you think Kanye a dick, you ain’t seen nothing yet
I be acting like a douche and ain’t achieve nothing yet, RETROFUTURE

(Time travel sequence instead of hook)

Song picks up at verse one.

I was born in 1984, it still feels like 1984

I’m on my way upstate, where my kind they take
Where we stay so long, cause we stayed out late
On the outside place, from the grind they make
Through the laws they shaped, from the lives they break
Ain’t been free in so long, finally found me a place
I’m chilling right now, but nowhere is safe

My girl said when you drop this EP, won’t you please come correct?
Oh my God what you ain’t know? They ain’t conceive such a threat
If you think Kanye a dick, you ain’t seen nothing yet
I be acting like the shit and ain’t achieve nothing yet, RETROFUTURE

Hook
You gotta live it like you living to the limits
Like you don’t get to do this all the time, ALL THE TIME
Ain’t no limits when you risk it, now you finally are living
Like you driven to get what your heart desire, push rewind

RETROFUTURE

But there’s no going back….

I was born in 1984, it still feels like 1984
