thieves in the night
thought criminals with a manifesto we recite
shoot a straight line right through the middle
of the riddle of the tangled web that's been weaved
i can't believe like Adlib and Mathematics
our change in speak is that drastic
i thought we were the voice of the street
and all at one time could feel the heartbeat
now these jokers spit lines of deception
like madmen in all our directions
Punisher plus the Multiple Man
with a third eye device for the retinal scan
doors open, we enter undetected
go home and study all the data we collected
lay it down like subliminal tracks
tread for the tires driving home the facts
we could drive it home with one headlight sorta like little Dylan
i've got a feeling
that once it arrives and gets settled in
that will put an end to all of the meddling from the puppetmen
those who wanna pull strings
hope they have surround sound when my blade sings
as it cuts through the wind, severing the wires
moment of silence as playtime expires
an opportunity has been presented
and the only smart answer is to exploit the instance
it's one of those key steps in the process
of doing this to the extreme while we've got this
whatever 'this' represents in your case
i can still see the same look on your face as i pass
and it's reached critical mass
then i see the everyday cynical class
in their one-two, one-two of a living
giving pretty much the same effort i'm giving
i guess that's the pendulum thing
the balancing act to keep life in full swing
widescreen type dreams at night
with an ill cinematic orchestrated insight
that fades away whenever the sun rises
to no alarms and no suprises
basically right now i don't sweat it
i make sure the moves i make stay kinetic and constant
cause that's a tight combination
forward advancement for the hip hop nation
we're soldiers holding down the frontlines
or Nick Van Exel whenever it's crunchtime
so without much time we make do
less is no more than a reason to make it through
