about

“Existence is Futile” is the sophomore project for Austin based , Scuare and no1mportant.

"In many ways it's a celebration of a loss of ultimate purpose and growth through acceptance.The Star Trek metaphor helps to illustrate that notion through what we think is a pretty comical lens.

Outer Space is often juxtaposed with samples and lyrics that relate to how people view sex and relationships. These themes represent opposing points on the spectrum, and serve as anchors from which to expand."

Track Name: The Prime Directive
Scuare:

Oh you wanted and more then yea
Scuare and no1mportant yea
Bet you cant even afford it yea
Got your vision all distorted yea
Yall just children aint worth it yea
We the only one’s that workin yea
We’re the only one’s get it
Ya’ll kidding
Ain’t even found the dam surface yet
Hold up
Takin itt back in the fold
Heard you been actin a fool yea
Hold
On to time as time flows yea
I decline to fly low yea
Drop a rhyme that rip apart the climate yea
I’m the kind to try both
You the kind to try to live fast
Guess its time die slow then



no1mportant:

You look ready to die
You planning to make it by handing yo tape out while standing adjacent and waiting in line
Pay us no mind
We made it up for you
If you paying attention we paying it forward
you playing for mentions then pray to yo Lord that he make it a mission to take you aboard
Make a decision and maybe record
Yeah make an incision that baby abort it


Scuare:

undefined by my foes
I’ll just learn as I go
Undermining my goals
I’ve finally come to terms with my woes
I’ve found undeterred the tied rolls
Alabama
There’s gone be some lulls
That’s some weeks at most
Thats something we suppose
I just need get close


no1mportant:

We not concerned
We not believe if not seen and not heard
Weep not for me if I seek and not learn
We not beneath it we been on this earth
....seem like a dream pass birth
....can't see what it means that's worth
....I can cease all belief that hurts
But it seems in sea of deceit that's worse


Scuare:
Hold er
Im in need to know disorder
Find me bleeding on a corner
Yea hold up
I won’t meet another quota
I just need to find a motive

Yea Hold it
My belief and act toward it
I’ve been feeding that shortage

Showed them
I’m just breathing that cold in
Cant defeat it just own it
s’all prone to unfold

no1mportant:

I'm coming in low
Hunting I'm plunging up under the snow
Hungry for something that's sudden to summon
I'm someone impatient
I'm stuck in this pose
Nothing to say til I'm done with this prose
Rushing to make it like 2nd and goal
Fuck what you say you do
Fuck what you know
Shut up away with you
Run to your holes
Track Name: Faces Places
Scuare:

I dont’ know why
Never stay near
Face to the back
Let the head space clear
Pace to past for the best days here
Better check their ears
I suggest they hear
Listen to changes
Flip through the phases
Anticipate when to stick to the pages
Hands to the place where you get when you’re spacin
Answer the wait with a dip in the patience
pra
That’s about it with this hate shit
Ah
That’s about miscommunication
Ah
That’s about livin in a state where the flaws that you fix take you back basics
yea
Why am I chasin
Find a better place let the walls be adjacent
Funny how
Now I’m done running down
Crowds all coming out

But it all feeling vacant
Everyone somehow feeling ok
I’m lookin down wonderin why
I guess when its been long day
Hold on to the Comfort that come from a lie


Still doubt
how comfortable I am
Letting go of youth the writings on
Walls are closing, choose, the timings wrong
All this hope that you’ve been dining on
Or fail to cope with what you decided
Walk through this island
Talk to the silence
Til the top or the bottom never used as guidance
I dont want to think about it cause I’m too defiant
No dog in the race when you choose to triumph
My shoes a tied
And my views tighter
Might cruise at times so
why choose to fight it


no1mportant:

Too many days alone
I can't be bothered anymore by

Time, space
I hate to think about it
I am out of the race
Sing about the missing out on good days
Eating out and drinking down the coolaid
Pray about it just stay grounded you say
Just put down the down and outter charade
Ran out of powder now cut down my intake
Ain't been bout it since I'm Bout It been played
Out of my way
You out of my weight class
I don't mind waiting to make it
But make that shit last
Daydream away all dismay that I have
Ain't made it this far just to stay in the past
Lay in the pasture
Grazing, awaiting the rapture
Staying in place till the base of this sapien race meet the fate that awaits catch a blaze & collapse
I am just matter converted to make it feel worth it to be introverted
I am not mad or concerned with the blatent diversion to see in the curtains
amazing that grace it don't make up for strife
new faces and places would make it a life
Yeah, Make it alright
Maybe tomorrow you'll make up your mind
Maybe the sorrow will cease and desist
Why make up your bed if you're never inside
Why sing to a crowd you can't seem to convince
Why make up the rear when ahead of the line
(I swear I'll be fine)
Why sleep on yourself when ahead of your time
Why need someone else's investment to wrestle your wreckage and settle your steady decline?

Track Name: Stowaways ft. Clifton Dukes
no1mportant:

These Hopes and dreams they come and go away
They try to break them I say no way
I always blame it on them
Impose my shame upon them
But who are they I call them
Stowaways

Simmer down simmer down
You will never make it you are bound to the ground
They will not embrace it cuz your sound it confounds
their emotions in a moment
switch around into doubts, Shut up .
You cannot keep this shit up.
You have no reason to be in this rut.
You ain't seen shit you ain't even begun to compete with completing your reaching the sun.
Reap the prize it's endearing.
Then Seek reprise of them feelings.
I'd be surprised if I reached the sky but I need to try to be near it.
(Bitch I got low expectations)
Oh solar rays can you shine a bright light on these poor Stowaways?
They just riding inside but not driving the train
I am tryin to collide they not wanting the same. What do you say to a wannabe savior that
wants you alive when you wanna be slayed?
I may be a ho but don't wanna be saved.
I'll brave the unknown til I'm old with a cane.
I'm done with the game like I'm 50
Im fixing to fill in the pain with
With some more novacane
Indie jones on these stowaways riding my brain
Cuz Han Solo I'm rolling get off of my plane

"Hook"

scuare:

I aint even really makin money
I aint even at a point where I been in running
I dont even know If I could leave it all go
Try to meet it on road cold night ain’t nothing

But the life aint something
you take light pain coming
with crash an bang til the migraine drumming
On the back of my brain
And the pipe dream numbing
where I’m at
I’m insane
On the high beam jumping
I’ma

Give in to the fact
that
Im never going back
pack long for winter

Given what I rap
Have never been attached
Laugh gone with the dinners

Putting it on for grinners
when the confidence thinner
respond with the charm feeling ominous in them

I’ll accomplish this con til the content get them
Jumping all around the world at a constant rhythm

Give a fuck about these stowaways
I’ve begun to throw away
All these little thoughts won't get distraught
I’ve got a show to play

I don’t need a lot I need a plot
I need to grow today
my oddysee is odd dont see the odds they seem to go way

when everything just come together
Bleed on this stage there’s love forever
Feed on this rage get wrung and weathered
Let it all just fade and be the one thats saved


"Hook"
Track Name: Ensign Williams
scuare:Holding that feed in my face
No I dont need an escape
Hope I dont meet you today
Grow to believe in your ways
I won’t be leaving this place
for your ego’s sake
It’ll be ok
Not to be so vain
To appease you brain
Leave some faith and the peace don’t strain
With the thoughts that’ll make enemies grow hate

when you're working
Worth won’t come from a merchant
Love’s no sum of your service
shame that we searching
For angels to surface
Word is
ain’t no way to be certain
Earnest thought is a pain to you puritans
Turn this loss into hatred and purge it
Turn your back on your faith til you passin away
And you grasping to stay on the earth its
Its funny now
Track Name: Old School Clocks
Scuare:

You don't need to like this shit,
Just give me what you've got,
Don't need enlightenment,
Just want your fuckin watch
Don't know what time it is,
Can't read these old school clocks,
And I know, I'll find you on the road

(Ain't nobody left doing this shit, ain't nobody left with me)

Scuare verse:

Used to think that I'd make it
Used to think that the truth was in the booth
Used to break it down safely
Who's to say what they knew, but I guess I
Choose to stick to that statement
You forget that I'm new to this and broke due to kissing that pavement

Scuare: "hook"
