Don't fear mere words 'cause if it takes a word ruin ya
You should have already hard you're finished through and soon you'll
See that stifling sentences is so much more suspicious
Much worse could come of that so much more delicious

To the dastardly basturdly plans of little mice and men
Ugly rears its head and speaks from now and then
People love to disagree so avoid the endless 'bout
Make no attempt to try and suss the stupid out

But of the racist institutions simple minds belong
Not happy just being human, no wish to get along
Little people need exclusions sucker groups to throng
It makes them feel special it makes them feel strong

Now I got a click but it's more like a family
Not an ethnic trip more like an ethic see
I write the rhyme today tell it to you later
Whether were coming in wack or what it's a waste to be a hater

Graffiti bombs from the palms-love is so strong
Can't be stopped too long for the night it will come
Shaped in the form of Mars that stone afar
Ghetto cool oh well now you feel the spell, the rude color rocks the bell

The king of swing rise to the top
The rhythm possessed in ya and it don't stop
The mise is broken the demon locin'
Dropping the bomb and all that is left is the smokin'

Cloakin' chokin', the lyrics are spoken
Infrared vision scopin' condition
Now breakin' 'em all to pieces like a sly rap bandit
Witha fly Lu-Kang kick in Mortal Combat and I land it

So get your own back when I jam it cold and
Hearing about you rhyme style been outmoded
The dopest flow upon the planet
Dope is the word the bro throw up on the down low goddammit

You juice your f***ing friends like Dracula
But when we kick you out you're just brokula
You left a big surprise from Pacific Bell
Called all your relatives and your friends in Hell

Now let me tell you something you f***ing piece of s***
You'll never have no money, now tell me was it worth it?
You leave a trail of lies that's why you keep moving
We won't come after you we'd only end up provin'

In the end revenge send ends to the defendant
I know that statement's true I wear it like a pendant
I know you'll hear this song and so I think it's funny
The name is thief or trust and money

Like Captain Picard we come hard in light years
Our star has long bust but now reappears
In your sky at night rising and immense
Yes you see ourselves in the shine of it

And so pa**ing under the dome of the great sky
Beware we are the stars holmes that you ruled by
Where death reborn into the world is a gift
So the future with no voice of its own will uplift

All is gone, all is calm y'all
All is gone, all is calm y'all
All is gone, all is calm y'all
All is gone, all is calm y'all
