After several interactions, we got to the following excerpts. Not all the emails are included, but hopefully the basic meaning remains.

The meaning is what this song is about.

well so far i have a name its kid 'n' black'

my purpose is to get in the buisness and show people all the bad things
in life. i'm about every thing thats not good, i'm alive for all the fans
because i know what its like being in the crowd and what we expect. so
i'm just going to give every one what they want and tell them the truth.

the only way i can do this is through music. i want to get heard and show
everyone who i am.

at the momment i'm looking for people to write songs for me

my dream of cause is to follow the foot steps of bands like limp bizkit
and kid rock, and i'm prepared to do every things it takes to get there.

more of the email thread... that leads to the lyrics:


>hmmm...  show people all the bad things... that might not
>be a bad idea.  but, then what... aren't you gonna help
>them do anything about it?


well showing people what to do about it, is not my purpose. its up to them
if they want to do some thing about it. my plan is to sing about the bad
things in life and mainly my life. but if i make it big then after a few
songs i'll start singing about all the good things, then all the things we
can do to improve.

at the momment i'm working on a personal song
its about:
a man who likes a girl
but the girl does not like him
so she pretends to like him
but in the end the guy finds out and gets angry
but for some reason he still loves her.
is this any good

chris (kid in black)

p.s i've decided to look for a better band name. i'm going to use kid in
black as i tittle to one of my songs, and it will be the tittle to my album
if i get that far




chris,

well... that is the problem i find with most artists...

"mainly my life"

as long as your focus is so self centered, i'll have
trouble helping you.   once you get over yourself,
just let me know.

After thinking it over, Chris responed:
well none of it motivates me. there where no artist's with my type of music.
the people that motivate me are famous groups like kid rock and limp bizkit.
as for things that moves me thats relavant to us all well i'm not sure. i'll
guess what is relavant to us all is the dis function in kids now a days.


So, we thanked Chris:
hmmm... well fancy this... you've motivated me to write a song:

(freestyle rapped to funkin' trippin' hip hop beat)

I'm the kid in black,
Here's what I lack:
Any self-esteem,
Do ya know wadda I mean?

Nothin' motivates me,
Cause I fail to see,
A reason to be.

Idolize the lame,
Try'n' be the same,
Lacking self-wealth,
Mental health,
And, social stealth.

Nothin' motivates me,
Cause I fail to see,
A reason to be.

I'm the kid in black,
Here's why I slack:
No self-esteem,
Do ya know wadda I mean?

Nothin' motivates me,
Cause I fail to see,
A reason to be.

I'm me, my, mine,
Most of the time,
Don't wanna help,
Nor develop.

Idolize the lame,
Try'n' play their game,
Lacking self-wealth,
Mental health,
And, social stealth.

Nothin' motivates me,
Cause I fail to see,
A reason to be.
