i stay functional this juncture
soul got punctured
and flooded the vicinity
yes, i need a remedy
release me from the role
of my own worst enemy
send me an angel
i'm still working the angles
to untangle the timeline
shine a light on the points
i find divine
which keeps me inclined
to repeat the process
Fight Club type of emotional hostage
boxed in logic environment
for the exploration
is what i'm facing
when i get home
and i don't mind
watch me find the time
when i climb into the night
like a scramble suit
don the everyman boots in pursuit
of putting the fruits of my labor on paper
safer when i take it in
straight no chaser
that's the nature of living life
like some self-appointed type vindicator

it's the new zulu zandu, just for you!

the whole thing is an incantation
reverberation of unchained thought
locked in like hypnotic suggestion
there's no time to question
the vast selection of water
that's up for testing
sign me up for tesseract connections
tangible reflections all around me
to impact you and i so profoundly
it soundly sets in
music as both medicine and weapon
healing element
or a tool for celebration of our imperfections
acting as if it can't happen
trapped in a thought
that tapping in to the zen
might send you around the bend
cast from the ranks of ordinary men

it's the new zulu zandu, just for you!

prose therapy readily at hand
to arrive at a pace where i understand
my influence
intuitive and i give
my examination emancipation
letting it go 'cause i love it
Lonerism states i gotta be above it
right about now
when i realize ain't no wow
'cause they've all been put down
that's why i partake in
these Dead End Hip Hop conversations
to invigorate the sonic landscape
from its now catatonic state
Mercyful Fate for the meek
maybe i'll speak on their behalf
oh, you may laugh
'cause you did not do your math

it's the new zulu zandu, just for you!
