like Coke La Rock slash Doc Spock
original intellect infinite
interjecting my thoughts in the proceedings
weeding out process so complex that i can't explain
i just follow the directions
sorta like take two and swallow
fucky dialect projected as China Syndrome
with a touch of Placebo Effect
the live wires connect to wreak havoc
on any sound system from the Earth planet
big business upset they can't can it
got 'em all saying damn it, like Janet
rap is still out of control
and we never did find that culprit that stole the soul
the one who played the loophole
managed to take advantage and it took its toll
mechanical man with a master plan
to change brain sizes into grains of sand
gaining control with the wave of a hand
leaving suckers frozen where they stand
i've been blessed with the moves so smooth they define finesse
by the sixth breath my decision is made
and the seventh is released when the scenario's played
in the shortest matter of moments i collect notches on the belt
from the number of defeated opponents in the wake
APB on the Chief MC for a wack rapper's sake
crews that have never paid dues
can't use The Word to advance, why take a chance?
all of these fools with their foolish plans
oughta spend time finding a stone to romance
then they could claim they rock for the love
ushering the culture along with kid gloves to an early demise
videotaping sex and lies for the children's eyes
then we wonder why kids grow up fast in the head
but their hearts aren't built to last
easily forget the past
and then do the same old thing with a different name
sadly i realize how easily connected
someone like Rochester or Steppin Fetchit
is to Rich Boy
Amos and Andy or Joc and Jeezy in a SLAB with candy paint
thousands died for our voice
too many of us made the wrong choice
i will not wait in vain
i will take my voice back
simple and plain
