  • Now I know, fools get their own when they chit chat
    Haven't heard yet, but you can bet I'm not with that
    With that talk, with the digi-walk
    I stalk a bird, you heard, absurd word to the fact
    I'm a cat nippin', sippin' on the flask
    Passin' it, talking shit, but only if your ass
    In front of me â??cause you could run from me, but
    In the end, revenge send ends to the defendant
    I can't get caught in the spiral 'cause every bit of energy
    It goes to my survival, out my way
    I'm a flicka-flacka blotter, ya try to find a weakness
    But the shit keeps gettin' harder

    Fourth of July, with Lucy in Sky
    I remember pine trees and the coat of many colors
    I was nineteen, I'd do anything
    Shit like that now scares me, but I'd like to do it again
    It was Independence day
    I've seen the other side and I say
    Oh, I've been insane
    And I won't ever be the same

    Cause we flow we must be fly
    First to flow Nickel my brother, so wise
    And then I rise
    Here's an ill kid, pimpin' 'cause he is so slick
    Steps from darkness, his body electric
    A drone buzzes the air, a cracklin' tone
    Then boomin' like thunder in a cosmic jungle
    Death defyin' like Knievel, he feeble
    Words that will wobble, awkward and evil
    'cause he flow and rock the hardest of the crowds A marvel pow, how you like me now?
    I've returned, the kiss of death, the last Damien
    From the abyss, fresh eternal alien
    Now famished from pathless way, I may do damage
    To the whack MC's, I know you can't stand this
    Right about now, get down, I'm the annihilator Rockin' with the rhythm of my rhyme detonator
