LIFE OR DEATH LYRICS
{VERSE 1}
Life or Death check the vivid apparatus
Born to pick it up and abuse the tool the badest
Habit of erratic to pursue cash fast
Stash of Zombies presiding beneath grass
ALAS/ Once again it’s that biblical fable
brethren’s falling victim to the Cain’s like Able
But thine art unable/ to perish under perilous contract
I contact/ ANCESTRY to recount that / I’m holy like the covenant
Divine not ignorant/ ranting and raving/ being enslaved
degrade/ Infallibly I’m notorious
For stern command/ of civilized servants/ of the man
or barbaric mockeries/ like conan
Bond my words in hemoglobin that ceases my physical time span
My mic check is life or death

{VERSE 2}
Life or death Oral tradition is my habit
Change wavelengths my mind is a polaric magnet
Attract the wildest heads due to the plumbus in their gats
Cock-back/ I twist a mic off like a 40 cap
Lubricate it’s crystalline like WD 40
Surely/ I mold the maligned mechanism/ Knifing the next victim
Lacerate his cardic/ Chain his brain/ then I whip him/ for cream
bust upon his back like seam-men led aloof so they shipwreck within the wet dream
To no ends/ cause the egg is premature
and nothing fruitful grows/ when the mindstate is soiled
and strategic ray’s mold foiled/ reactions/ from the radiation of
micromic wave functions/ deviated/ from the heat of my tone
Breaks the beat/ accomplishes feats with my poem
My mic check is life or death

{VERSE 3}
Life or death/ check my synopsis of getting wreck
Amateur styles/ yet they all claim pro-tech/-son
No imperfection/ when phones are taped
words raise resurrection/ keeps heads up like erections
of monumental structures/ rupture lungs/ when trajectories puncture
through rhythms that indenture/ the soul/ fellows/ crucify/ but I justify
and electrify/ with the power of my third eye/ why ask why
the microphone dies/ resting in pieces it lies/ measurements on the modulator in sines
turned to flat lines/ echoing chimes evap my mind
till the tool is recycled/ and I drop it as a dime
with enzymes of life to crusifications of death/ my mic check
is life or death
