rogue ronin
melanated melatonin stays flowing
so the free radicals stop growing
those thoughts i find in my bicameral mind
meant to blind temporarily
and create disparity
mind the gap that emerges
between you and i every time i rap
my goal is to bridge it
but that space created is so vivid
that i'd rather live in it for infinite
instead of these reality bytes
each time the mindhunter strikes
the significant shifts get discernable
versatile types might escape the vertigo
everybody else starts reeling from the feeling
falling amidst these truths so revealing
the surveyor pulling back layers
to identify trends and find the outliers
send 'em a lifeline before they expire

black dynamite with diction
while speaking both fact and fiction
channeling a sacred inscription
rhymes that'll turn timelines
into an undefined design i'll imprint on the mind
this'll be my lesson on discretion
blessing the spectrum
like i'll challenge anybody objecting
with the doomsday weapon
shaping the context with bulk aperception
gathering from every direction
multi-dimensional connections
putting boots to the doors of perception
no knock invasion persuasion
dangerously dope combinations i flex
off the sounds that are pumping
alchemist steady making something out of nothing
reality that resembles intertextuality
so devoted to the coded
make it inception every time i get quoted
more uplifting than compatible drifting
rhyme animal shapeshifting
ballad of an unleashed altered beast
so feast or famine
i am forced to take time to examine
every moment to the smallest component
keep it common knowledge i'm my only opponent
spinning in the throws of winning from the beginning
plot thickens as the competition keeps thinning
