The many ways the night impacts our lives, both positively and negatively. From my upcoming Top Shelf mixtape.

lyrics

Darkness and mystery/ Repeatedly through history/
The night is known to contribute to pain and misery/
Not to say that it's the night's fault/
But when night falls the crime calls because of human eyeballs/
Our major inhibition of vision at night/
Delights all those with missions intended for out-of-sight/
Infected with sodomites that couldn't see wrong from right/
They'll do it like Walter White, in silence without a fight/
Leave nobody to indict them so they can lurk again/
Sending the plague of darkness flowing through many men/
Some into petty sin while others completely whacko/
Schizo with PTSD on PCP-laced tobacco/
Trapped in a mental black-hole forever engulfed/
Roaming the night terrain livin' their life on impulse/
The end of your life could be close as one appears to approach/
But then the sun cracks on the horizon and they GHOST/

In the night, evil creepin' in the dark/
They seeking out some unsuspecting people in the park/
In the night, heavy beating in your heart/
You thinking someone gonna leave you bleedin' like a shark/
In the night, Interweaving through the stark/
The deeper out you go the more you think you are a part/
Of the night, and it's so alright/
There's no reason to fight, because I love the night/

Blazin' up is always better at night/
And it's usually after midnight whenever I write/
The most inspired rhymes in my repertoire/
And all the many times where I set the bar/
So high for myself by pushin' late to create/
Crankin' 'em out hopin' to see blankets by 8/
A to the M but I'm V to the M/
So I'm mean to the M-I-C with a pen/
So I can't help that I can't be held back/
By the time limitations when I detail tracks/
And my female lacks the same concern as me/
So we stay up all night and we stay burden-free/
Laughin' and makin' love until the rise of the sun/
Our passion is way beyond the pain that time has become/
So the night's alright, even if it drives in a hearse/
It's both a beauty of a blessing and a knife of a curse/

In the night, evil creepin' in the dark/
They seeking out some unsuspecting people in the park/
In the night, heavy beating in your heart/
You thinking someone gonna leave you bleedin' like a shark/
In the night, Interweaving through the stark/
The deeper out you go the more you think you are a part/
Of the night, and it's so alright/
There's no reason to fight, because I love the night/
