War! War!
(War is a continuation of politics by other means, the purpose of war is to

I'd like a beautiful shelby that'll praise me right
Struggle with big ****, but got this elf **** mastered
Like I know G-d can understand his ingenius plan
Cookin food for stereos, so feed your CD-rom this
Shut up ****-talkers and made want to-be thugs huddle
Quit smoke from the fire-lips, protect your iris
That's why *****z drink and stress for cigars to roll
Life's a freak and it'll **** you and all that you want in this diss dance
Get bowed in the heat of the battle but then we get cut
Wishin' a meal and G-d would multiply this bread now
You know I, come to the fork in the world so many times
And movin' on (karma's a double edged-sword)
Before she sinks my song

Scared by darkness, searching for beauty like Cinderella's man
Hanging my own self, bad decisions prepare the rope
Showin' my pearly whites to disguise my prize
Using her death to instill strength inside of vibes
Feelin' low-low, for sho Deacon pursued by shame
Cause when nobody's helping me out then its hard to give
An un-tame negro, runnin' cain for dough
Knowing that ****'ll come back and it'll rain for sho
Fame stickers in my mouth, cain sniffers on the couch
Not knowin' I'm feelin' like it cause I'm livin too fast

But I just keep choosin' wrong
You know I, need to choose the correct path, change the aftermath
Cause it may not be long (karma's a double edged-sword)
Karma's a double edged-sword (repeated and scratched)
