My head spinnin' like a breakdancer, daddy told me question life what a great answer.
Mama asked me if I ever pondered life's questions, I thought about it for a second said "I can't answer".
Now that's one second less, the first time in my life I felt second best.
If at first you don't succeed then take a second guess, unless this proposition cause you to second guess. Wait...
The second hand it slowly tick, my second hand stretched out like a goalie stick.
A man told me a lowly man's the most holy, my response to that wholly was "holy shit".
Now that's some holy shit, nigga's drinking the blood of Jesus like a lowly tick.
One hour to contemplate my life's goals, throwin' dice while lights glow from light poles.
The night's cold like white gold or white snow, right so I just write prose 'til the night froze.
you can have peace
you can have power
we hope you enjoy your final hour
tell me how it goes
my God Deacon! (what?)
you're a complete mess! (i don't know?)
what have you done to yourself!
get yourself together man! (I'm tryin!)
I had a dream death burst in the room
it was right when I burst from cocoon
it was right when I learned to write these verses of doom
and walk a tight rope from earth to the moon
I'm like, "death you're early...
I wanna die on CP Time"
He like, "whatever..
read between these lines
held up the pitchfork
ain't the type for intellectual discourse
the rich can't bribe
nor got love for the piss poor
no time for love, my nigga, this war
knock knockin' down my thick door like a big thor
then I coward as he towered in the night
had death loomin' over like an owl over mice
coming for my enemies, family, tight friends
coming for the stars and they hype men
even if you got a nice chin this that straight KO
in the end everyone lays low
he never eat
just waiting until I AM say go
whether it's peace or power you pray fo', my nigga!
