Ship of Theseus

Feat. Illogic, Araless

Verse 1Skeptik

Can the same object exist in two places?
I’ve seen plenty people rocking two faces
Identical concepts erased ‘em, replaced with
New moving parts and shipped to an oasis
Now they’re both but there’s no hope
No point to row, there’s nowhere to go
But what if someone in the know showeth no current or a go with the flow?
Take this ship apart, rebuild it again
Fix the old bits, will it break and bend?
Salt from the seas, the salt from bеneath
Lies through the teeth arе often believed
Keep the same shape, just switch out the frame
Shit’s not the same
Let’s not shift the blame
Nowhere to shift it
Lost a random misfit by virtue of existence, materialistic

Chorus

How many things have to change?
Now I’m not the same as my name
Isn’t identity strange, the way it shifts day to day?

How many things have to change?
Now I’m not the same as my name
Isn’t identity strange, the way it shifts day to day?
How many things have to change?
Now I’m not the same as my name
Isn’t identity strange, the way it shifts day to day?

How many things have to change?
Now I’m not the same as my name
Isn’t identity strange, the way it shifts day to day?

The way it shifts day to day
The way it shifts
Day to day

Verse 2Araless

Every cell in my body knew
Got new work, got new hobbies too
Different shit that I’m vibing to
Different shit that I’m tryna do
I’m the sum of my parts, stomach the heart
Brain in my skull in the dark
None of it there from the start
All of it gets replaced so where do I start?
A name is a label enabled to make a mark
In this argument take it apart
My memory’s just a one man game of telephone, it’s like art
Identity’s on shaky ground
Don’t think about it, don’t play around
And if you start that up, don’t make a sound
You ain’t John Locke or Descartes
You don’t get paid to go wrestle with these questions
They for professionals
We can’t rename every vessel on the dock before they embark
Does Marx or Jean-Paul Sartre getting closer they supposed to be smart
Maybe it’s meaningless, we just impose plots and character arcs

Chorus

How many things have to change?
Now I’m not the same as my name
Isn’t identity strange, the way it shifts day to day?

How many things have to change?
Now I’m not the same as my name
Isn’t identity strange, the way it shifts day to day?

How many things have to change?
Now I’m not the same as my name
Isn’t identity strange, the way it shifts day to day?

How many things have to change?
Now I’m not the same as my name
Isn’t identity strange, the way it shifts day to day?

The way it shifts day to day
The way it shifts
Day to day

Verse 3Illogic

Every time we look in the mirror, do we see who we are or who they made us?
Blinded destiny, impressions be the currency used to abuse and enslave us
I’ve been watching how the outlet showcase the loss for clips
And we fall in the trap, just bored, we react to the wack while enduring the bliss
Never take for granted the advantage you have to not listen to what they’re feeding you
There is choice involved, don’t panic, but reflection is referenced by what’s in your feeding tube
So who you gonna be today?
What mask are you gonna rock?
It’s okay to show your face, stand behind that private stock
I take a drag from my flask and laugh
It’s just a blast from the past enhance
I can give myself a chance
Best lay the other plans
I’ma stand, be a man, I am who I am
We dance for the crowds
Never understood where to find you
It’s never been a jigsaw, read flaws
It’ll change what you amount to
They’ll never doubt you again with the pen, take a spin, my friend
It’s not the end
