lyrics

It's like
I just woke up from the dead
With enough stuff in my head
To fill a book for every moment in life
That you wanted to speak but nothing was said
And giving a voice to the silence
Is an art and a science
Like painting pictures of particles
That compose the heart of a giant

But it was painted with blood
Tainted with love
So in a display of defiance
It leaped off of the canvass and into the mud
And then a man sprouted out of the clay
And started to play with the nothing
That stood in his way

My only challenge is me
For all that I see I've created
A dream that I pulled from the stars
I've never written these lyrics
These bars are scarred in my spirit
Like I was murdered with poems
And then arose from the tar

And the word became flesh on my bones
And I the testament that beckons you home
I built the pyramids then slept on the stone
Now I'm out of my sarcophagus
To propagate the populous
Ascending through the oculus
And topple this Acropolis

We marchin' on the city of Rome
Suddenly emerging from the margins
Between myth and biology
You ready Freddy?
This is Jason and the Argonauts
We make dreams into Waking Life
And What Dreams May Come
From the Tears of the Sun
are The Passions of Christ

My flows turn riptides to undertows(under toes)
By walking on water
Bringing peace where the thunder goes
You either do or don't wanna know
Welcome to the puppet show
A hand full of chiefs have been eating all the buffalo
And we don't have enough to show
To justify we shouldn't go Geronimo
Joshua at Jericho
It's gonna take a miracle
But that's my fuckin' specialty
I'm manifesting parables

Gathering Samaritans
And governance is terrified
Cause love is uncomparable
I'm carrying the wisdom of Sumerians
And channeling the spirits of original Americans
Our enemy is arrogance

So it's humble when I'm telling you
There is no comparison
There's no distance between you and I
Our relationship is Baltimore and Maryland
Star and Sky
We are One
and I am I
