So I've moved I think a total of 25 times in my life. I've lived in 7 different states and tons of different towns and stuff. We weren't military just somehow kinda gypsy-ish. So when people ask me where I'm from it always takes me a while to try and explain. There are tons of hip hop songs shouting out different cities be it LA or NYC or ATL or whatever, but this song is more for those folks who have never really been able to call one place home. I hope you dig it.

LYRICS:

They say that home is where you hang your hat
so I travel with hooks and racks
cause I can never stay in the same place
and it's just easier that way
know what I'm saying?

I remain wrapped in boxes
Packed light, I keep moving
Keep doing, I keep choosing to keep uprooting.
I'm just using this pen a pair of kicks and my head-set
I'm here to day, tomorrow just a dent in the bed spread.
"I'm on the road again"
I'm flowing solo in the wind and I'll know where I am when I land.
I got no roots in it.
A tumble weed with the boots fitted
A two fisting
Booze sipping
Move stricken
Truth spittin',
Shadow.
I ain't from nowhere man, yo I'm Mr. Nothing.

I hail from the rain and the snow named the East
But blow town once a year at the least and that's a breeze.
The ice can't freeze over the currents of me,
I breathe the deep into my lungs and then I leave
Spit peace to the Granite state yo, and long Island
I don't know no one but that's where I'm from
I'm in the mirrors.
Hung inside the homes where I've been
you can catch me looking in if you squint.
I'm Mr. Nothing.

I ain't from nowhere man, I'm Mr. Nothing.

I've graced several states place to place in my chase
And today I say I stay in L.A.
Where I'll take
a slap in the face
Face to face as of late
shot straight
Before a "Oh my God, you were so great."
See I appreciate the pain in that moment
Cause even when my cheeks are swollen I can keep going
I like knowing who my friends are
I been far from home
I've lived alone
I've out to places where I don't know no one
So I ain't throwing no signs in the air where I'm from.
I ain't showing no signs but one.
And that's the fact that I'm not from here.
and the fact is that's how it's always been
The fact is I'm only a picture of places, a snapshot that blurry and shapeless.
I'm a collage of all the different places that I've stayed in
I can call all these locations my home
And so I lean back into the map and I relax into the motion
Snatch my hat off of the rack and keep going.
til I"m thrown into something where I'm somewhere unfamiliar when I'm finished.
Where am I from? Shit you got like 15 minutes.
So how about you? How about me? How about you?
Man I'm from nowhere man,
And that's somewhere too.

And if I never knew a home Chi-town was the closest
Caught the wind. I caught the wind in there
and if I never knew a home Chi-town was the closest
Caught the wind in there before long.
And if I never knew a home Chi-town was the closest
Caught the wind. I caught the wind in there
and if I never knew a home Chi-town was the closest
Caught the wind in there before long.
I caught the wind in there before long.
I caught the wind in there before long
I caught the wind in there before long,
And before long I was gone.

I'm Mr Nothing.
