here is how one comes to grips with vices
recalibrated definition of crisIs
someone postdated the reality check
funny money won't make the ends connect
even if i paid the taxman respect in an overabundance
he would still collect
that's one certainty
certainly it doesn't happen haphazardly
or inadvertently
more like a clockwork russian roulette
still code red
panic in effect
protect your neck for pete's sake
survival instinct in sync
act then think
black-ops codename : Automatic Slim
slim like your chances in all circumstances
take this for example
i will use your death rattle as an amplified sample

when animus attacks (yo you know where i'll be)
when animus attacks, when animus attacks

quite often i mistake rap for combat
contact, or something far beyond that
Jeet Kune Do
still apply water technique to the flow
more than you know it
sleeper cell weapon in the form of a poet
full metal jacket came fully loaded
loaded to the gills
run for the hills
visions of the aftermath give me the chills
like "why have i been forsaken?"
acting as if these actions were sanctioned
in any way, shape or form
storms without calm
damaging your whole structure, no qualms
i regret nothing
when animus attacks i am objective
and can't control that
so i am but a ghost in the shell
one more face at the bottom of a poison well

when animus attacks (yo you know where i'll be)
when animus attacks, when animus attacks
