You are listening to the heartbeat of the Sage
As well as split second calculation
The defense techniques of tomorrow had to be discovered now
New concepts, new tools, new weapons

I used to think that rappers had it figured out
Once a man twice a boy with a choice of vice or voice of spite
Now I thought suicide was a suburban myth
That is until I travelled this world a bit
She heard the music but preferred the person, she's worth it
Pushin' buttons and playin' with levers
(Radio) Suckers never play this
Poorly developed, yet highly advanced

Supersonic, super destructive, seemingly unresistable
Constantly monitoring, pulse-taking, controlling

It's not only a time I'm kept
Sitting on snow banks
Or wait
Fill my body till they send me an empty face with the head of devils
Yanked from life, placed in a vase
That we all make
Throw me a reindeer John letter party
Hell spawn
They still got the gall
From strip malls
They slip drugs
Tell us to drink up and get buzzed
Emerge from the dust kicked up in the uphill battle
Pointed towards the couthouse
I disassociate the actions with their meanings
Plus I'm bleeding
A fanbase with hearing aids and a voice like a hand grenade
Pull the pin and push it in 'em
A super villian
We'll see who laughs last all the way to foreign banks
(Recorded Voice)
to protect the future of America
(Come on come on, feel it feel it)
But is this protection enough?
(Sage Francis)
Singing all the songs at parties
Through the door in the hotel lobby
So people who are poor can rob me
Color me confused when they paint issues black and white
It's my destiny she wants me she beckons
I'm certified fresh
Like *mwah* I do it with tongue this time
And take that statue back to the lab it was created at
Take 'em back!
Take 'em back!

And as long as we're on guard
To move ahead
