(Audio clip)

The way the flow rides beats is tantric
You can't anticipate my slanted antics
As semantics dance on canvas
Giving breath to fantasies
I'm a lantern in the heart of darkness
Where phantoms banter with an artist
Carving anthems in the carcass of a panther
I've stolen inspiration from the spirit of a bandit
He told me come upon them in the night
Then your candor must be candid
So I'll continue emptying my heart
By spouting from the mouth
I insist upon insisting that I'm sick
Til the day I flicker out
I suppose I go through these withdrawals
Cause I'm always kicking flows
Watering these ugly seeds until they sprout
And the beauty is exposed
When I die
From the wound will grow a rose

Chorus(Audio clip)

Looking to destroy the common way
With my hands upon the eye of Amun-Ra
So I put a pen to paper
Then I watch the letters play
Like Children of Light
Building temples in the night
To align them with heavens
Telling stories of the Eve
These piano keys have opened doors
Where metaphors were locked away
A vast array of colors also laced with spots of grey
All contained within a room
Where you can watch the Devil pray
And the ugliness of beauty
Is subtly displayed
When the people are afraid
It is not that we are evil
Hearts are simply cast in darkness
By the truth that they betray

Chorus(Audio clip)

The writing's on the wall
Using my apartment as a parchment
For my heart is a compartment for the force within us all
Watch the world around me darken
As the jargon of the bargain keeps swallowing the light
Til angels learn forgiveness and Lucifer is pardoned
We are humans seeking stardom by returning to the fight
Burning candles in the garden where the serpent gave us sight
Along came the servant of the night
Like a moth unto the flame
Smokeless as it was, growing brighter in the rain
Til the Moon became the Sun
Shedding light on revolution
Change in usage, evolution of the gun
And when it's done
Only one remains
We are the same
Letters written in blood stains
