Wake up to your grave it's the reminder on the clock
And those fleeting bits of satisfaction, turn to afterthoughts
But if you say the magic word
You could crawl back on the verge
And see that fire in the sky burn everything back to life
You don't have to sleep to dream and, live in paradise
Abracadabra, are you watching closely?
Can you feel the dawn approaching?

I overheard niggas saying Jay was on the verge
He could make Rumsfeld resign with rhymes he never heard
Commune with the birds
And could manipulate matter with the usage of words
Throwing dice on the curb
I'm best and freshest with the written text fuck what ya heard...

Winston Churchill (We shall fight on the beaches) - "The new world, with all it's power and might..."

It's the metaphysical, Dolby Digital
Any Joe`ll tell you the flows so pivotal
Every words literal
Each diatribe is sort of like an interview,
Come get a inner-view
Right past the man and the myth to the mineral
I was born uptown a mile from the riverview

Look (uh), I'm a simple man ya understand
Mastering my temple man trying to expand
But when they think you simple man
They'll try to play you out like you a simpleton
See what I'm saying
Niggas want pain not mercy
I'm writing in my Moleskin on the train to Canarsie
Stand clear of the closing doors
The people are in constant fear of Trojan war
The vehicle that's supposed to free us is just a whore
I gotta call em like a see 'em
Even it it means they'll sanction my per diem
The angels will thank me in the streets if see 'em
Saying there he go but I wouldn't wanna be him
Holding up a three and reppin' for New Orleans
Let us begin
