futuristic throwback
everybody knows that
each full measure I take deflects blowback
can't hold back
so I hold on for dear life
20/20 without hindsight
if I hear right there's a Permanent Midnight
on the horizon line at this time
feeling like I've been the victim of a mind crime
outside the business but more than a witness
my investment in this is massive
interest is gained while I'm doing my thing
all around win so I go all in
plus double down, how's that sound?
hopefully super-sonic for easy listening
stay focused like the fix was in
get it in, that's what's up for right now
Darkness on the Edge of Town for night owls
once upon a time that I call right now
I am empowered by the fact I allow myself
to go with the Evenflow like Veder
a veteran
and you can't find a better man when it comes to lettering insight
already present so I don't need invites
my Brigade is all Upright Citizens
infinite ambivalence is the stimulus

plastic surgery for ugly Americans
makeshift Merovengian
Matrix escapism, release me
take my breath away completely uniquely
crossing any altered state line
same crime I commit time after time
do you realize that cause and effect
are the pressure applied to protect your neck?
respect the proximity
anonymity is a true possibility
keep it hid, way off the grid
Medium Cool
don't flip your lid
that's when you get positive contact
reach out and touch faith, give chase
come on feet
let me change speeds with ease
journey anywhere I please

space-time folder
older that tomorrow
Man or Astro-Man of Constant Sorrow
all of his days
going through phases
known to eliminate trace elements
deposits of skeletons in the closet
throughout the gossip I stay modest
I stay honest to this Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
what is the cure for the young man's blues?
keep it moving along
the way bad news travels
Foot Pon Gravel like Omari Kamau
Assymmetry would be useful right now
modern alignment
culture consignment
new growth as originators define it
currently the coexistence is like killer and witness
reminder to mind your business
