"Owl"
Written by Antonio Rosario
Performed by Orikal Uno
2012

(VERSE ONE)
Night owl, existin' strictly in the right now
Iced out, Minnesotan ink is used to write down
Whatever's on my mind, rhymes formulate and birth creation
chillin' in the cut of where my cadence and my words get placed in
post madrugada, underneath the stars and moon
yea I love my hometown but I wanna travel farther soon
...So I stay up late and write cuz I can't seem to sleep
And I won't fuckin' stop until i'm seeing where I need to be
An alien without my mothership that's on some other skills
The dopest lyricist you ever heard that's undiscovered still
Ill, I creep amongst the shadows and the vandals
livin life daily like i'm tackling an anvil
...I find solace in the breeze of the A M
In a cobra clutch, but I'm too stubborn to say when
Inner city streets, release my soul on gritty beats
journey under street lights, dim and flickering...

(CHORUS)
Night owl with my eyes wide open
Ride around town, through the night i'm absorbin'
Night owl with my eyes wide open
My life is like the skyline that never stops glowin'...

(VERSE TWO)
Concious when I shouldn't be, but buzzed and wide awake
reverse the pendulum, the spectrum flips until my night is day
Night owl that's on the prowl, I spread my wings and fly away
Leave my essence on a wall and let the morning dry the paint
Silent trainquility, Perfectin' my abilities
Within the sweet serenity of when the average person sleeps
Walk eternally thru city streets nocturnally
express my self with aerosol or on stage fitting words to beats
when it's done, I embrace the breeze of early morning
gazing at the stars falling, start stalling, watch them soaring
yea, a night child goin' wild when I do
...Construct my soul, under the glow and the light of the moon
As the sun sets, I watch it go down
As the darkness starts emerging, up above the whole town
Inner city streets, release my soul on gritty beats
Underneath these street lights, I glide within the imagry

(CHORUS)

(VERSE THREE)
(8 bar break)
Day turns to night, within the night is where I stay
Stay up under light and write and sleep thru-out the day
Day turns to night, within the night is where I stay
Stay up under light and write and sleep thru-out the day
I'm a night owl amongst the stars, a deep purple sky
makin' sense of life within the dark, dreary night
As the night gives birth to a brand new day
I give life when I write or with a can of paint
