write rhymes like i reside in a faraday cage
and each page is more protection
floating in space on the search for a core connection
to upload introspection
outside the cloud that's crowded with
simulated simulacra of random genre
life like night at the opera
keep my chakra more proper than deepak chopra
written like a ribbon of flame in the sky
so extra with my stimuli
that i don't ask why
i just embrace the vibe in its state
of natural reverberation
meditate on the sensational
in a motivational context
forming a subset to get in touch with
the unrecognized enemy of the public
subject to judgement like the congress
holding the smoking gun with no accomplice
was all that was ever accomplished
change of venue or change the topic?
juggernaut in motion
and nothing we put in its way can stop it
this toxic habit will wreak havoc
as it runs amuck until everyone's out of luck
any timeline progression goes far enough
and it'll all get awful rough
those prepared say 'send in the worse for wear'
and tell them to go on a tear
for some indiscriminate duration
and disregard implication
rampant string detachment
cut ties then i buried the hatchet

digging on metatext to bury evidence
in plain sight under thin veneers
frame of reference corrected
to help make it crystal clear
to the point that i might
shed a single tear as a tribute
to anyone who cannot institute
even a minute gameplan
like the lay of the land got scanned
and it's data they cannot compute
pre-monolithic lifestyle adapted
those who propose that turning the past
into redacted text or convex preference
have lost any grasp
of collective essence
pretty girls still make graves for cave singers
they are dead ringers as a matter of fact
that signed a lifetime contract
daring you to keep staring
at the black mirror reflection
for devilish detail
big style as ghost trains get derailed
spirited away
piercing the veil like paper mache
suckers tuned in to the tape delay
getting resigned to a life that is lived
so far behind that it feels like new ground
wholly convinced that all of this
is some new sound
meanwhile i make beats
like i tame the havoc
and craft these bars using eldrich magic
and other techniques
that'll newspeak volumes for astral weeks
and yeah, that's a long time
might as well get a ticket for the long line
though i might turn the queue askew
for a sneak preview
then leave 'em to exist in the residue
