spaced invaders blessed with ability
to transform into dazed crusaders
welcome to the layer cake son
she thinks she's the passionate one
like you did it to me once again my friend
deja voodoo
master teacher
guru for hire
spotting liars, they were talking, right?
ask Elie Wiesel about Night
for a slight change in perspective, respectively
i would like common ground collectively
but my culture insults intellect
Dangerfield style
no respect
funny like I'm laughing just to keep from crying
focus on the pressure that I'm applying
with the expert timing
priming my engine for soul mining

catalytic conversion immersion therapy
bad operation done terribly
let it be known for the record and so on
this is advancement with nothing to grow on
you can Ghost Ride the wave
we are all slaves to energy that you cannot see
magnetic personality means polar opposites
stay in a tight proximity
occupants of that space in-between
all of your close friends
and closer enemies
who will it be now?
face in the crowd
stand tall but if you stand too proud
then folks start looking
cooking up schemes
Gallagher types set to shatter your dreams
for a laugh
but that's the math
law of averages
means balancing good folks and savages

Red October Small Soldier revisited
devastation inventory unlimited action pack
as I rack 'em and stack 'em
single lightbulb dark room kidnap 'em
screaming obscene and all that
Legends of the Fallback
this impact will hit you like 667 all day
bullyfootsteps along your hallway
no knock policy
high quality
my tragedy exudes comedy
and i calmly bomb the system
turn each witness into a victim
list 'em all
window to wall
read the print no matter how small
for the big picture as we invent you
transcend you just to prevent you
sorta like Invisible Touch holds you back
makes you spend time thinking on what you lack
backwards man as fast as you can
de-evolution was the master plan all along
'look babe, they're playing our song!'
pull their plug 'cause they do it all wrong
why am I reluctant to keep it constructive?
I am not a fan of the mass productive

:: mc : dj : producer : artist ::

A wordsmith with the heart of a poet and the head of a broadcast journalist. A DJ who is not afraid to venture outside of the norm. A producer with a different vocabulary of influences, and no fear whatsoever about embracing them. An artist searching for the link between the palette and the pixel. ... more
