esoteric terrorist misfit therapist blanket theory practitioner overlooking all the abundant evidence and relevant elements once upon a time referred to as present tense seemed liked the opportune setting and aesthetic to express any pressing issue type-poetic wants versus needs sorted out in the rhetoric edited yet repetitive a self-induced sedative if the end fits the means it can squarely oppose the in-betweens those who would dream to intervene become victims of fate stop-lossed on destiny's plate waiting room casualties social abnormalities beneficiaries of a technicality in the sense that innocence can create the victim if it doesn't kill him surely it could uplift him timeless and spaceless, nameless faceless manufacturing the illusion of complacent a replacement who's to blame when the hands get locked in the violin of shame? permanent fixture behold the volatile mixture of realness and i don't feel this could it be as contagious as it is outrageous to keep filling up these pages? cue the music, prepare the kick wake 'em up quick before they fall deeper into sickness witness a holy calamity good time slash bad time fallacy pull the trigger i am bigger than trigger man or warn me in a language that's easy to understand pon the attack and step back for clarity surgically remove any irregularity [ guest verse by Emcee Eats ]
pen plus paper equals super collider a vision provider the cleansing fire burnout for hire, supernova style shine like the sun on everyone for a long while quite possibly eternal 6'2" towering inferno heat-miser 'til they expose the beat then incendiary from the head to the feet be aware when the solar flares extend to the absolute zero at the core of all ordinary men ignorant to the pain 'til nothing is left but charred remains dust in the wind revisited again arm twist charm via repetition and replication in a combination lacking explanation or consideration for the bystander often misunderstood by the outlander which does both good in the long run let the grand expanse in-between be the venue where life can dance electric mayhem intelligent sound system who will be the next victim prisoner trapped in a prism studying spectral analysis and sleep paralysis diametrically opposed ends friends in passing both side effects of passion time for action the only thought on my mind is taxing anybody asking questions listen for a while think versatile try and reconcile with the culture you defile and move on this is how one can improve on the things they love and then rise above we all feel it to the core we all want more these the last days (GET YOURS) introduction time for the oblique speaker abstract thinker drinker on the brink of a tragic relapse perhaps the fall that can prolong eventually hitting the wall sorta like cruel to be kind augmented design hands free just to fly blind cheap thrills whoever said speed kills should best step aside so that we don't collide no need to hide spectatorship is a highly recommended practice for those who lack this seemingly easy ability to comprehend the reason i'm called Mystery second guessing truly obsessing over any possibility that the reality is a bleak one cause it's music to the ears of a sucker lost, and looking for peers flunkies aiming at a chance for supremacy spitting mirror image of his own worst enemy nega MC, king of a scene that's broken socially due to extremity a disparity in the polarity of everything distance makes for an atomic reckoning dark energy beckoning for closeness when nothing else remains they shall toast this achievement if that's what the suckers wanna call it haul it in and then the party can begin ignorant bliss when they reminisce over you at best it's a quick overview cryptic cliff notes and sound bite quotes floating in sickness with no antidotes terminology wielded terminally irreversibly and interpersonally we all feel it to the core we all want more these the last days (GET YOURS)
neon genesis infinite limitless birds eye view for the tried and true visual individual thought criminal that manipulates data delivered subliminal that's how a prodigal invisible sun returns to spread the heat on everyone equal opportunity denial of immunity never a no show, but may shine truantly fluidly, the water technique polar connection makes it concrete set it, so solid most forget it tragically heroic or pathetically poetic? Shakespearean Criterion Edition solid acquisition fusion and fission all along the same lines join to divide war going on outside worldwide pick a role weatherman or make the wind blow? fly or jump out the window? no offense the evidence of time moving on is abundant this is redundancy sick form of reluctancy to accept them changes and the strangest part is the audacity to call it art saying it straight faced and quite complacent warn the adjacent about osmosis proximity awareness preparedness for those closest looking down the barrel stumbled in without the bulletproof apparel the most dangerous game a rose by any other name is still the same thing grab hold wrong and the thorns will sting offer up the blood and the tears they bring lay of the land vs. chain of command leader of the pack that remains unmanned ghost unit motivation of the spirit visited the thrill ride without the ticket this is but a snippet of a bigger picture how it sits with you is implicitly idyllic mastered whatever forces i inhibit far from illicit let's get specific pushing each digit to the limit inch-punch finger jab combination to the timid crush that windpipe like it's acrylic shattering the visions that seem the most vivid pieces of a dream that's been quarantined keep 'em separated so they never convene intervene in-between the lines let 'em find your designs amongst the hearts and minds
if only there were more love than money changing hands nowadays glory over fame always social evolution slash love revolution after the love is gone then restitution is rewarded down to the sordid details and assorted fine print every last cent was spent before the money changed hands whether it be bad finances or bad romance the two seem as if they were parallel factors solely designed to keep people in line criminal neglect of the beautiful mind blind faith is the genesis of the bind faith is a key, but you must see all the opportunities the forest, the trees every degree the arm leg leg arm head that is cherished individually totally caught up totally out of look totally in pain totally insane totally with a doubt totally spaced out (i know a few understand what i'm talking about) stepped out the front door and the rain followed meditated that it'll be better tomorrow manifest those visions with such precision and clarity on some clockwork regularity optimism is a temporary wisdom unique ability to see the full prism and take it all in let's begin, shall we? at The Epicenter's where i'll be listing the devil within the details sort of as a hobby but not for a living both unforgiven and forgotten in one fell swoop duck soup enough for the whole group to partake in another forsaken ritual of a naturally habitual type routine scenesters minus the scene hands that are strangling whatever's between totally caught up totally out of look totally in pain totally insane totally with a doubt totally spaced out (i know a few understand what i'm talking about) selective directive operational multitask master type situational like a watcher and a pusher combined vision of a future this mind designed on some Pollock a beautifully abstract mess dot connection from a man obsessed super manic heroic the moment before stoic rapper like Charles Bukowski was a poet novel ideas, embrace the fear America still needs volunteers look at what's happening on the streets start a revolution with or without beats by speaking teaching the concise and coherent facts that normally are readily apparent yet easily ignored fully unexplored unadored the facts we cannot afford to neglect respect to the unhinged living off the fringe benefits of a binge swoon in the midst of too much too soon the bag in the wind the red balloon play it where it lies without compromise one who approaches and plans to improvise is a free man the main street exile high quality in a low profile totally caught up totally out of look totally in pain totally insane totally with a doubt totally spaced out (i know a few understand what i'm talking about)
listen up because the city's still screaming streaming through the possibilities of redeeming itself or splitting sorta like a Joy Division people on the block knowing dub it premonition low key scholars silent alarm callers landing much better than the rest of the fallers the boy who made slaves out of men sacrifices freedom to go at it again no destination can fit this equation going mobile without the hesitation disamating any trace of authentication stay strapped in for a brief demonstration introduction to the deconstruction of the functionality within the monarch seduction separation anxiety scaling obstacles of glorious variety looking for sobriety now i think it's alright that we're together, and i think that's the right idea, my man yeah, i think that's the best you ever played it, and yo, i think that's the right idea dismemberment plan set to cover any man from head to toe a glowing benefit for any inspired individual omni-situational for that full contact thrill-seeking type cat a win for the losing champion my dear friend real, but compared to what? it depends on the stance that is taken which in turn is the architect of the universe we're creating emulating the idea of a feeling self-induced wound that will soon need healing reeling from the shock while blocking out the pain bloodstains splattered all over the mundane static, monochromatic and dogmatic too much of anything makes you an addict angel-headed hipsters lacking the connection facing opposite directions from the blessing now i think it's alright that we're together, and i think that's the right idea, my man yeah, i think that's the best you ever played it, and yo, i think that's the right idea perfect blue hue a vast abyss for any soulless individuals to wander into following the lights possibly even get it right and select one ripe for the pickin' stickin' to the plan with an unchanging stand sorta like getting pulled out of quicksand soul shifting miracle man working on a hand to hand basis in numerous places synergetic social semiotics personal growth through artistic by-products momentum connects with hypnotic effect travelers not knowing the direction they're going all journeys are accumulated destinations placement debasement professionally travel without moving questionably wondering what the lesson will be patiently waiting anticipating reaction lovesick victims becoming the vaccine the irony of ashes to ashes molehill mountain, a fountain of growth as time passes enlightenment exists at the summit during the climb remember what you learn from it daddy's traveling and won't make it home burning out his fuse up here all alone now i think it's alright that we're together, and i think that's the right idea, my man yeah, i think that's the best you ever played it, and yo, i think that's the right idea

role rehearsal reversal universally magnetically pathetic attempt self-sacrificial individual fresh outta nails and screws tacks exempt for his own benefit not innocent in a traditional sense when the new evidence introduced itself into the picture changed the game within the framework that's maintained solving brain games and exercising compromising all situations totally influenced by the limitations of the average stat being way beyond that phenomenal cat with kinks watch how it all links together despite mistakes concentration breaks memory lapses misinformed or misfired synapses how's that for some more obscure rap? verbal entrapment enter the dragnet ends against the middle of a polarized magnet unconditional love slash bad habit rabid animal cannibal transformer eyes stay open, back to the corner go go visceral peripheral 360 vision on a static physical look at how everything is illuminated only for a moment then excommunicated cast out, let's pull the mask out time for the unseen to lash out two step win : all in then cash out making history flawless victory still mumbles like embrace the mystery scattered brained picture perfect memory esoteric hustler put on the squeeze hold you in the arms 'til you feel the disease psychosomatic, lazy lymphatic adjustment into the flood we're thrusted helping hands holding out a list of demands good advice tailor made for the badlands hourglass sand dreams of a shake-up give him the kick and help him wake up eyes open totem out the pocket in the palm spin it and anticipate the chance to stay calm God made a ramblin' man gambling a chance at this life is a part of the plan play it how it lands fate is in motion Moby Dick without the whale or the ocean hold on and hope that it all works out physically moved beyond the shadow of doubt
being's unbearable lightness the urge to write despite this permanent likeness left behind big blind sets of action going all in with nothing to ration rainy day savings all day beware of the stickup kids roaming in the hallway always looking out for an easy withdraw benefits doubling as your downfall sorta like the shadow of a smile sinister side coinciding with the need to hide within the other side of time lines in the sand can't determine where i choose to stand therefore a step thirteen means leaving everything behind at the cost of a beautiful mind unwind but try not to unravel head among the clouds feet among gravel formulate a picture of matter plummeting earthbound shattering whatever's in the path of its Pyhric victory flight that's achieved at the risk that anybody made to believe is offended and all contact is ended no place to land without hands extended done, crash land amongst no one survive to thrive like blister in the sun baby, it ain't hard to tell dig this shell well equipped for the hell i catch in the ongoing journey to complete this match stuck in a rut this unique cut doesn't seem to be compatible or it's too adaptable malleable yet somehow barely valuable some say the value is a gradual gain payback for choosing to invest in pain scoping out the vast expanse makes a tiny dancer feel the lack of a need to advance no need to be a solitary visionary what's a pure spirit with nobody near it? an island which no man is unless all circumstances spiral fully out of control but suppose two black holes collided and merged together to form a single black hole? everything hanging in the balance might vanish panic from the beautifully fantastic damage pictures are still on the wall before i walk away it seems like they wanna see me crawl everything hits at once, simultaneous somewhat redundant overabundant natural next step's becoming numb from it seems like equilibrium comes from it
matchmaker arsonist moonlighting fire in the eyes blind men recognize were the hands idle or in need of a title? have those feet walked a moonlight mile? marathon style.. continuous stress the whole episode strenuous self-made venomous due to an unchecked interest that's been known to manifest at the peak and run for eight days a week roadshow flow opposite antique instant classic dope on plastic right and exact within the inner fabric truth interwoven between the words chosen halfway home after half-day closing frozen in a chain of events with a strain imposing itself until the chain is broken rearranged man to the origins of lost mammal burned both candle ends off the handle putting everything together with the choice to dismantle it later leave it in shambles rubble rumble yet remain humble king of a castle that will soon crumble pack light shadow in the night versatile style on the scale of hematite first hand knowledge trapped in a quantum of solace no apology for being polished why confession for a life's profession? search for sagehood passing on lessons sentimental journey of the soul diggin' on introspection spun out of control this is how the accidental at home tourist is created and then emancipated [ guest verse by EVAK1 ]
secondhand smoke jumper double bummer another cruel summer for the homestar runner momma looks down and spits on the ground anytime that topic's mentioned the mad invention mad scientist in training monstrous melody needs unchaining rampage style for the son of necessity works effectively without the weaponry that some cats require this is now a journey to build the legacy a quest for fire light a path leading straight to the empire love it like it's soon to be a funeral pyre any other path would be a waste of time amongst suckers that constitute a waiting line watch it intertwine into infinity timidly marching into anonymity using the stone that the builder refused completed the fuse that could power the muse artificial energy driven contraption ready for action the main attraction lacing up the gloves on some Battling Maxo no matter the outcome just act natural frightening even when the screws need tightening duck or get struck by smokestack lightning shining like gold the standard type wipe it all down then create the crown from the first cut simply 'cause it's the deepest day's never finished so remain sleepless in it to win it if only for a hot minute skin it, strip it to the bone then spin it around eagle-eye viewing proximity lost in a search for a cure to the remedy generation gap : beats v. blanks arm both sides with bombs and tanks let it all simmer future gets dimmer x out the y's eliminate the chance of a winner punishment park the clown baby capturing the flag, possibly maybe one hand washes, the other receives those hands are clean is what a fool believes mr. halcyon light as a feather and flying high within the friendly skies touched down and never left the ground hoping for discovery of the profound category redundancy to duck allegory caustic wit meant to advance the story abstract Uroburos self-sacrificial while simultaneously cyclical skipped standing in line to get a new brain that makes one neutral on a moving train logic dictates there's momentum to gain even without movement forced improvement is it harder then to be stagnant, or worse digress? repel the magnet that's the choice of the polar opposition painless just like a suicide mission an impression that just kept on pushing away the misguided passion play all star cast cream of the crop solid 'til the last thread of curtain drops some method benefits the misdirected hand selected to be disconnected smart cats realize it ain't pretty to pull a 180 and cut that city
definition of impact a forceful blow and the object ceases to remain intact simple as that speak the Boîte Diabolique on beat in fact ear drum attack thrusted adjustment totally unlike the way we discussed it sewer shark with new maneuvers audio junkie full blown abuser wouldn't it amuse you so to let go and bask in the glow of it all? this is an Abstract Freefall revisited public image update unlimited learn to swim before the lights go dim on the show you're planning clearly from where i'm standing these cats are sinking and thinking about going deeper underground i'm going deeper underground shine like spectres that aren't defined naked eye patch working on a double blind third eyesight bet lest one forget this journey contains paths infinite without destination introducing uncommon denominators into equations collect components for calculation modern alpha-numeric transmutations good vibrations resonating on Monolith frequency frequently champion status Doomday Massive is mammoth madness looking for canvas so callous it upset the balance seems the dream because actual malice ominous threat leave it unchecked for a series of events you won't soon forget i'm going deeper underground abstract engineer working the angles spends time exposing the trouble with angels racking up frequent flyer miles on wings of wax prepared for that deep impact that closes the deal makes it real adds the masochistic mass appeal shocking mad suckers like electric feel every day there's a new king of the hill that will tell you what the sun's all about when the light's go out songs in the key of right now powerful impact that's lacking the need for a time restraint that would surely seem quaint to an evolutionary revolutionary tuned thought pattern cavernous insight live it and then write regular men bite the pattern continues on an elevated plane either complain beneath the bus for another campaign or avoid that cold November rain watcher with a cause and a sharp set of claws pause so it's easier to observe the flaws of the opposition on mission set for decision to strike or intercept transmission heavy artillery more ammunition than one needs to abuse competition i'm going deeper underground
help me out because the walls are closing in once again the lettering gets clearer as it draws nearer and time for thinking equals nil this is real life in real time and it's redefined by the moment those who own it aren't alone others roam the fringes inches from the action lacking satisfaction itching to be the source of energy for a single positive reaction contact in the truest form imagined fingerprints planted upon the surface of a tangible tangent parallel lines frame the corners of my mind tangle 'em together for a chance to unwind and resign to the natural flow gravitational give 'em something they can classify as conversational misinterpretation of personification animate inanimate strictly through motivational tactics targets on a journey for practice give it how you live it type Millennium Actress bartering the dust for ashes stuck matching wits with the classless rose colored glasses for the masses limited supply no more protection for the naked eye ultraviolet as the ultra-violence never will Chief be one to suffer in silence complacency breeds contempt and no man will be exempt from that fact or the abstract impact to follow that's one tough pill to swallow thinking if you hold it all together through tomorrow you can make a masterpiece out of anything left if you ain't supposed to die a natural death then you're cursed at the finish psyche gets pushed to the limits if you're forced to watch your value diminish
