"The last line of defense"
[Evidence]
Yo you better plan ahead, gather your thoughts
The Orange Agent, has just moved to your block
Hard to get at, yo vocally serious
Drum patterns are primitive
Of what the late '80s and early '90s had to give
Caress this microphone, stay home and take your sedative
My Last Line of Defense, I keep a ace in the hole
The Weatherman lands at high noon, ready to drop ****
But soundclash wit us (Don't do that)

"Don't ever lose sight of this fact" [Defari]
"Evidence" "When it comes to blood and rap, it's lyrical combat" [Defari]
(Back up in it)
Types of pipes, and green to keep me hype
So I rarely fly, intentional grounding
I'm equipped to blow shows and turn kids out wit corners
And set trends more than femmes could split ends
In fact, as I speak now
Make that dough for too many's the main concern
Share the wealth with Babu and Iriscience
Go focus on the star, the man who won the Heisman

"Don't ever lose sight of this fact"
"When it comes to blood and rap, it's lyrical combat"
"Evidence" "Don't ever lose sight of this fact"
"When it comes to blood and rap, it's lyrical combat"

You didn't think I had what it takes in my esophagus?
Of course it does, standin still
At that rate, on tour dates, I hope you never run outta breath
Both of my names like Gary Shandling's Larry Sanders
Wherever I go, my caravan goes/Gogh's like Vincent
So I shock this microphone and split a tree trunk to hollow wood
Set your standard, make it known you own your throne
In time, the wound will heal, rest assure they'll make it known
Who gave the answers and what questions are asked
Call Evidence The Last Line Of Defense
"Evidence of the war"
The last line of defense
The last line of defense
"Don't ever lose sight of this fact"
"When it comes to blood and rap, it's lyrical combat"
