You know what, yo
This is not a love song, it's a sonnet
I'm just a fool playing with the master's tools
Hallucination, I see with my eyes
Why am I telling lies to the people from the stage
Cause I can't understand
Trying to pimp the universe, that's a joke
It's murder she wrote, assassination vocabulary
I should'a known, they do it for Forbes alone

It's funny how life can go
Don't get high off your own supply
This is my message to the world
Not trying to say if it's right or wrong (you know what, yo)

Servin' rhymes like my granny used to serve provision
In the art of onomatopoeia
When I was a kid I wanted roller skates and a bike chopper
That's why I'm schizophrenic now so
The harvest we reap is what we sown
Of computer digital clones, that mimic philosopher stones
That sounds ill, relationship is a mirror
That's why I'm on the scene wit a mic, like Ernesto Guevara

It's harder to pretend to try
I'm looking at the Nile, it rose high
They stand around and keep talking
But wisdom fills so many things say it again
They stand around and keep talking
But wisdom says so many things, to love, love
Don't get high off your own supply
Not trying to say if it's right or wrong
