if I asked honestly
'is he the enemy?'
would you point fingers to prove loyalty?
what makes a man start fires?
disconnect wires?
preach to a choir to shift accountability?
maybe the lesson is less responsibility is a blessing
with alternate attire
dharma chameleon
less is no more than a feeling I'm dealing
working that Heisenberg distribution
one man causing so much confusion
Use Your Illusion next time
use it to stretch time stamps out to one direct line
Common Purpose for a thousand points of light
can you keep tabs on every dog in the fight?
that'll get you all light headed if you let it
outsiders become totally embedded

keep 'em all shook
give 'em that Bruja look

let me get all Delacroix on you girls and boys
Lady Liberty enjoys my interpretation
and I dig interpretating
never hesitating while most turn to hating
no debating
I'm not James Carvel
entrepreneur now pursuing the hard sell
force feed
like America keeps eating its young
knowing they're alive cause they're still bleeding
look at us, competing with entities
Projects for New American Centuries
shooting the breeze on some butterfly effect
think tanks working the damage disconnect
the opposite of intellect
collectively changing my life
disrespecting me
no chance at advancement apparent
last days coming
I've been preparing

keep 'em all shook
give 'em that Bruja look

voted for the lesser and got that
lacking a contact
every day feels like combat
Wombat Rex on the stereo
here we go again
I intend to remain unscathed
you can behave or behold my greatness
elevate like I'm weightless
take this lightly and you just might be the problem
if that's likely you should politely decline your position
personal goals should be second to the mission at hand
hashtag occupation turned actual
individuals that together act rational
positive groupthink
getting in-sync
don't partake in the drink
these are the days of miracle and wonder
Boy in the Bubble timing out that thunder

keep 'em all shook
give 'em that Bruja look
