thunderbird wings
bring me things in strange ranges of classification
for i am the manifestation of purpose
a surged emergence for hire
phoenix outside the fire in which you burn slow
it gets stoked unprovoked
by the devil you know
stay on point cause he's sizing you up
for a finishing blow with no afterglow
swept in the depths
of an unchained undertow
with no rhyme or reason
appeasing the flow as it goes unchecked
whatever you cannot deflect
is set to catch wreck
which designates me as the architect
that was always meant to bring circumvention
to everyone's full attention like headline news
so here's the next bulletin
what good is a puritan in a city
chock full of corrupted men?
what we need is a chameleon
more versatile than cerulean
or any spectrum you're feeling to seed the psyche
and feed the scenario folks would label unlikely
to take root within the realms
of the destitute
take back the term strange fruit
my pursuit for a chance at
proof of concept might break the minds of those
less adept, the soon irreprable
not even knowing they're unprotectable
seems like an undetectable
line of events when you're in the midst
i wasn't made to wade through
and i'm thankful that i recognized that fact
and had a reaction
take hold and fire was my desire
leaving me so inspired in my search for traction
make commitments to get
in the grime and grit
similar to scar from full metal alchemist
i exist to tow the line
walking these streets to complete this cipher
spend days getting ready for an all-nighter
just about tantamount
to a man landing in a demanding prediciment
this denizen's getting it in
much more than the minimum required
stunting on suckers for hire
metaphysical healing sounds so appealing right now
so bring the damage
past this vanishing point for tangents
