about

This is a remix/mash-up of two songs from the game Sonic 3D Blast: Rusty Ruin from the Saturn version of the game, and Panic Puppet from the Genesis/Mega Drive version of the game. My first serious (and public) attempt at rap, with great guest vocals from my friend Martha.

I made this track for the Sonic Zone Remix Competition (now concluded), here: ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=39652

lyrics

*chorus*
I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was doin' just because you thought up
something different 'cause it's not what you want

I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was called to all because you think
way too highly of what you say you see

*verse*
LOST
the battle that I tried to win
'cause here we are, on the same ride again
you don't see, you're always trippin'
you don't get that I think different
the world is upside down and spinnin' around
and when I say that I was lost and now I am found
you seem to think that all I'm makin' is just noisy sound
but I won't let you when you keep on trying to bring me down

*b verse*
I was lost
but now I'm found
and no one could ever take that away from me

I was blind
but now I see
you so clearly

*verse*
LOST
to the Oh Say Can You See
a classic case of the American Dream
How do you expect me to take you seriously
when all you say to me is "retire early"?
just give some more love to your family
I know it's not black & white like A, B, C, or D
it's not multiple choice, but if it were me
I'd give a little more than what right now I see

and what's this about always hatin' on the poor?
"they must've sinned with their money" what do you take me for?!
I s'pose they always coulda done just a little more
but ain't you ever been in that same place before?
obviously, you ain't in the same place financially,
but apparently, you don't know how to just live gratefully
take what you got and just start livin'
and stop tryin' to get more and hide this all greed and

*chorus*
I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was doin' just because you thought up
something different 'cause it's not what you want

I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was called to all because you think
way too highly of when you speak to me

*b verse*
Why are you
following the
world and all of its cultural pretensions?

you have a
higher calling
so what's your intention?

*breakdown*
aren't we all just
puppets
aren't we all just
puppets
without Christ we're all just
lost little puppets
so hey mister puppeteer
why don't you get outta here?
and get

*verse*
LOST
it is for my wife's wishes
'cause it's her wish to not hear me rappin'
I guess I just like to do what I'm not supposed to
or maybe it's just not what people are used to
hey there, I sure am pleased to
meet you, but I'm not here to please you
and if you don't like that, then please just appease me
and don't bring it up every time that you see me

*b verse*
I follow
the Truth even
if you cannot see it

thank You Lord
for taking these
chains and setting me free

*chorus*
I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was doin' just because you thought up
something different 'cause it's not what you want

I'm sorry that I won't be your puppet
I'm sorry that I will not drop what
I was called to all because you think
way too highly of what you say to me

*verse*
LOST
in the amount of truth I spit?
or maybe there's too much funk in this?
well take a look, I'm living proof of this
that people are led in different directions
