Track Name: The Call to Adventure
I woke up in the middle of the night
Midnight, that's when I gained some sight
High like a satellite, discovering my plight
Fist up like the might, and I strike down tight
Lace up my kicks: Chun-Li style
Ready to run these tracks, code red dials
Went to to the booth, pen and pad in hand
Understand that my mind is grand not bland
Excitement running through my fingertips
Imagination examination lingers, this
Is it, Michael Jackson documentary
Except it's about my life, I won't pretend to be
Hard or a superstar, just an aspiration
To make it for my entire stay and duration
Face it, you racists, check my pedigree
And family tree: Chinese and Vietnamese

[Chorus]
I hear it calling: 1, 2, 3, 4
I hear it beckon: Give, me, some, more
I hear it shouting, 5, 6, 7, 8
I hear it yelling: Ad, venture, can't, wait

My mind's bursting at the seams it seems
Thoughts reigning supreme and my dreams
Become realities, ideas amounting to become new strategies
No salary but I'm good in the hood: Applebee's
Rattle me and shake my head, ineffective
My directive is locked in, respect it
I spit 16s at 16 so magnificently
That you will see eventually I am ready to be
Known here and there for my inner strengths
This winner ranks high on your memory banks
Brain storm so thoughts may weather together
Whether feather or heavy weight, it's clever
Tornado process, torpedoes no rest
Volcano thoughts hard press, Saints call this blessed
I feel it in my gut, I know it in my heart
Something is calling out to me, but when do I start?

[Chorus]
I hear it calling: 1, 2, 3, 4
I hear it beckon: Give, me, some, more
I hear it shouting, 5, 6, 7, 8
I hear it yelling: Ad, venture, can't, wait
Track Name: Supernatural Aid
And so it goes like this, swagger beats for your soul
Listen to the gold that swallows you whole
The chimes provide a very surreal experience
Ruling over you so massively you perceive it's tyrannous
But you enjoy the extreme control it has
No puff puff pass, because this is a high that lasts
This treble is edible, I feast it's metaphysical frame
Devouring these treats creates and I've became
An alchemist of great powers and abilities
Silly me, this is just supernatural remedies
On the contrary, it's unleashing my potential
Practicing on instrumentals is increasing my mental
Every now and then we need a tiny little push
Thank God that mine is the sound equivalent of kush
Light it up, take a hit, roll it up, make it switch
Lift your cup, bake a bit, slow it up, this is it.

And so it goes like this, like this
And so it goes like this, like this
And so it goes like this, like this
And so it goes like this, like this

And so it goes like this, the way you carry yourself
I put on myself, call my shoulders and back a shelf
I feel strengthened, empowered, like I am needed
No tedious tasks ahead, importance, I really feel it
Abstract tracks and stressed quests are handed to me
But I don't lack valor or zest, I am Takumi
Let me handle all these things being aided of course
Let the beat drop and I'll still have made it smooth not coarse
There's an angel on this journey that I'm taking
An ethereal form to keep my back from breaking
She provides me with muses and refuses to let go
She inspires me and fuses what loses so I know
Swims through my veins, whispers in my ears
Embraces my pains, tempers me right here
Beyond belief, out of this world visions been made
This is normal given my supernatural aid

And so it goes like this, like this
And so it goes like this, like this
And so it goes like this, like this
And so it goes like this, like this
Track Name: Crossing of the First
I'm in a totally new land, I can't understand
Are they really injecting fat into their glands?
Cars and jewelery is translated to whips and chains
Refrain from this lifestyle to keep my brain
But that's what in right now, what's hot and popular
I've gotta examine it faraway, give me some binoculars
I'll dissect this thing and look through a microscope
I hope the Pope doesn't hear about this, nope!
Thousand dollar outfits, shunning all the misfits
Outcasts out classed, drop plastic to be really fit
Tailored this and that, customized Gucci hats
You really wearing that? That seems a little wack
But they tell me it's hot in the game, rock for some fame
Act bolder and get yourself a diamond studded cane
Citizens of this world are Ego powered
I'll get crushed here if I don't look out: miso shower

A dangerous realm where the top are jets
No souls around here, the Devils' been making bets
I'm venturing into something totally unknown
I'd like to phone home, can't breathe in this warzone
Avenues of revenue, princess cut diamonds in it
Rose all day, thousand dollar champagne: try a sip
Retirement funds are blown in a matter of minutes
These people know no limits and never finish
The party don't stop and no one knows when it starts
So they end up living it until the last thump of the heart
The water here is priced at an arm and limb
What pays is sin, that's whats in, implants: no gym
Am I really trying to get mixed in with these kind of people?
My wealth is little and feeble and theirs too regal
Will my attempts in this world seem so jocular?
Or will I get eaten by what's really popular?

Them boys don't know how and why I'm so clean
Give me a full cover to cover special edition magazine
You feel my VIBE, so I gotta Optimize
I've got SmartMoney so I maximize
So upscale with ambition double X L
The details of this well, simply I excel
Multi-national man, call me a Cosmopolitan
I make it hard to breathe, damn, get you some Oxygen
That's just LIFE! I'm such an Entrepreneur
I'm a Highlight Premiere with Fortunes galore
A Visionaire so rare with the commissionaire
They stare like I'm a Vanity Fair, I'm up there
In the Penthouse with a hunger Ethiopian
With a classic style that's priceless: Smithsonian
I'm an Esquire since I require a higher wire
Call me sire, hot and out of the dryer, never too tired
Track Name: Belly of the Beast
Where am I? I ask myself in this dark room
Take a match from my pocket and light it through the gloom
I look around and try to observe my surroundings
An entirely blank room, yet somewhat astounding
I find a door, painted crimson directly in front of me
Walking slowly toward it but see shadows suddenly
Grab me and sit me down in a chair from nowhere
Tied down, wrists confined, my vision impaired
The tiny flicker of the match goes out and poof
I feel the room close in, from the walls to the roof
Out of the black, another flame is born
Instead of me, who's holding it, hold up, I must be torn
It's me holding the match, am I dreaming or what?
He or I lights a cigarette and then holds it up
I look straight into my eyes and he starts laughing
My cuffs are undone. I feel stuck. No time passing
He or me, is dressed in an all black suit
But it is me isn't it? This fact I can't refute.
He takes another drag and blows three smoke rings
Calmly he pulls a chair and a light from the air and then he brings
Forth a table and sets his feet on it
Out from the ceiling comes down two gin and tonics
Drink up he tells me, pushing the glass forward
No thanks, I tell him, I don't drink. My head lowers
He laughs and gulps his in the blink of an eye
I'm sitting looking at myself wondering how and why
He says You need to come to face the fact I'm real
I feel! I breathe! And I cheat, lie and steal.
Here I am! I am your long lost brother
I am your demons and monsters. Like no other.
He pulls out a gun and he points it at my face
He smiles a devilish grin. Bullets fire and I lose grace
Bleeding, panting, losing blood and confused
He tells me that he is everything I refused
Do you know what I am? He asks me maliciously
I am all that is wrong with you! But, curiously
You acted like I was all wrong and vicious, please.
He grips his jet black gat and yells furiously:
You can't destroy me, you can try to quell me
He shoots and shouts I'll engulf you into the belly
Of the beast and yes you will become this!
He points at himself and clenches his fist
Slams it against my skull. I collapse into the ground
I'm looking around, I only hear the thumping sound
Of my heart beating wildly like a bass drum
Then I realize all along I've been so dumb.
Look! I said to him, trying to get his attention
I'm sorry I've ignored you. I feel my muscles tension
Instead of killing me and taking my body
Join with me and we'll work together. Just stop me
If I'm wrong, but you know this as well as I do
That us together is too powerful. I swear it's true.
He contemplates and nods his head in agreement, yes
He sets his gun aside and gives me his left
Hand so I grab it and I feel so at rest
I wake up in my bed and I feel so blessed
Track Name: A Meeting (Diary of a Young Girl) feat. Cassidy Garcia
[Verse 1]
Girl got a man and he just doesn't understand
Short days, long nights and he doesn't comprehend
Insecure mind that clutches to the porcelain
Parents got divorced and she doesn't feel important
Pitch black night, can't sleep, can't even eat
Barely making it in school, now she has to cheat
Trying to keep up an image of perfection
Friends backstab her, everyone has deception
Planning for her future but it gets way to stressed
Drinking it all away, still, she's a beautiful mess
Bruises represent abusive but she's making up excuses
Doing everything so she doesn't feel useless
Queen: you deserve the title
But here you are shooting me down with your rifle
Cruel and unusual world
She writes all down. Diary of a young girl.

[Chorus]
Somewhere I went wrong but
I'm trying to a bit strong
Right now I'm down and out
Just trying to belong
I don't know why but I
Just sit down and cry
Wish I could shed all these tears
Get me out of here
Somehow.

[Verse 2]
Living just to die, spending it all to quickly
It's a pity a girl so pretty living in a world so gritty
More make up to cover her face from the hurt
Cuts on her wrists so she's wearing long sleeved shirts
Shades hiding her eyes filled with pain and sorrow
Looking forward ahead knowing there is no tomorrow
Scarf around her neck to block hand prints
Deep inhales of the cigarettes, posing for a candid
Every night crawls into bed and looks at the ceiling
Extremities numb and cold but her heart still has feeling
Tears stream down her cheeks. They leave a path
Picks up her lamp tosses it and it feels her wrath
Breaking down, meltdown, no one around now
Parents out of town, boyfriend creeping around wow
Doesn't know what to do, her head starts to swirl
She writes it all down. Diary of a young girl

[Chorus]
Somewhere I went wrong but
I'm trying to a bit strong
Right now I'm down and out
Just trying to belong
I don't know why but I
Just sit down and cry
Wish I could shed all these tears
Get me out of here
Somehow.

[Verse 3]
Walk into a coffee shop late at night
I tell him keep the change as I slip a five
Glance at the counter and I notice her
5 foot 4 pure beauty and I know she's hurt
Sitting all alone, ran away from home, bag at her side
Frail and delicate, at moments, tears on her face dried
Writing in her notebook, into her own thoughts
I sit right next to her and drink my coffee while it's still hot
She stops sets her pen down and takes a drink
Compelling to exchange words, this is what I think
I talk to her and we converse for hours
4 am and we're still up. This cafe is ours
She gets up and I bid her a long farewell
Whispers in my ear, and something's changed I can tell
Hands me her book, she'll call when she's out and up
Rehab it says in her diary. Young girl, good luck.

[Chorus]
Somewhere I went wrong but
I'm trying to a bit strong
Right now I'm down and out
Just trying to belong
I don't know why but I
Just sit down and cry
Wish I could shed all these tears
Get me out of here
Somehow.
Track Name: Temptress feat. THEM
[Chorus]
A masterpiece personified, having guys stop petrified, here I am
I'll get you so mesmerized, have your eyes hypnotized, man oh man
I'm just here to make you testify, it'll be all right
Come here, closer, closer, closer

This girl is a temptress
I just need a sign on what I should do for this
Caught in her eyes I can't let it go
Whether it's right or not I'll have to know
Here goes something.

[Verse 1]
I remember the first time I saw you a couple years back
This girl so cute about to give me a heart attack
I retract, heart locked down in cardiac arrest
And it's not too embarrassing for me to confess
I digress, she was a temptress so seductive
Despite her graceful nature, making mine so unproductive
But firing my soul in places I didn't even know was real!
This right here was something different, had to seal the deal
Regardless of the outcome, it had to be right now
Despite our differences, it was all just lifestyle
Could we make it together? What'cha doing tonight?
Doesn't matter now. It's set in motion alright

[Chorus]
A masterpiece personified, having guys stop petrified, here I am
I'll get you so mesmerized, have your eyes hypnotized, man oh man
I'm just here to make you testify, it'll be all right
Come here, closer, closer, closer

This girl is a temptress
I just need a sign on what I should do for this
Caught in her eyes I can't let it go
Whether it's right or not I'll have to know
Here goes something.

[Verse 2]
Now let me paint you a picture so you can apprehend
For her I'd take drastic measures the way a ballot can
Caution ahead because she has dangerous curves
And a witty banter that would make a bumpkin slur
I'd swerve my direction every time she walked by
Having a guy like me try to play it cool and sly
But my magnetic fly almost didn't attract her
So I switched it up genuine and didn't play like an actor
Surprisingly enough she started to enjoy yours truly
I got her melting when I laid down the charm so coolly
You could have fooled me! I was doing it so smoothly
But in fact my heart was erratic and acting so unruly!

[Chorus]
A masterpiece personified, having guys stop petrified, here I am
I'll get you so mesmerized, have your eyes hypnotized, man oh man
I'm just here to make you testify, it'll be all right
Come here, closer, closer, closer

This girl is a temptress
I just need a sign on what I should do for this
Caught in her eyes I can't let it go
Whether it's right or not I'll have to know
Here goes something.
Track Name: This Road of Trials (feat. Radar)
I'm traveling on this dusty road of existence
My skin is rough and taut, but my eyes glisten
Hands scarred deep with the tasks of yesterday
Walking for a better day, polishing my life's resume
Legs have been weakened by thousands of steps
My heart reps and lets the body do the rest
Don't mind me, honestly not looking for trouble
But a magnet to this madness, look at it bubble
I arose from the rubble and made it to a hustle
Grind to a science, refined but still have to tussle
Not trying to scuffle but I do more than rebuttals
Smuggled and struggled, dents in my knuckles
Taking broad steps and strides, no longer a shuffle
But taking this path will provide problems, a couple
Nothing in my possession, not a bag nor duffel
This sword edge is doubled, similar to the muscle


[Chorus]
I! Travel inside my mind. I'm the problematic type of vagabond kind
I! Undergo tasks to get mine. A series of tests but I'm running out of time
This road of Trials. This road of Trials.
Like I'm defending my life in court on the stand
This road of Trials. This road of Trials.
I'm transforming into something I can't understand


Adversity has raised the stakes to a higher level
I see him glancing and laughing, eying is the Devil
Sign a contract he asks, my problems disappear
But it appears that my fear can never be cured
I feel the ordeals and the appeal of it being released
But the real zeal of this can never be peeled or appeased
Living on threads and fumes, all guts and spirit
My heart and soul, these ghouls are trying to kill it
I'm second guessing myself. True grit and grind
I've got to do it myself. I'm a conqueror by design
Resign the lines because this will make me stronger
All you war mongers will have to wait longer
For my demise and death, I've got extra lives
I'll survive when others died and strive the jive
Where others faced harsh conditions I will thrive
On this Road of lies I'll be the one to open our eyes


[Chorus]
I! Travel inside my mind. I'm the problematic type of vagabond kind
I! Undergo tasks to get mine. A series of tests but I'm running out of time
This road of Trials. This road of Trials.
Like I'm defending my life in court on the stand
This road of Trials. This road of Trials.
I'm transforming into something I can't understand


If you want to see what I've seen, use your ears
Listen to the continents and travels right in here
I'm embedding into this track the tracks I've walked
Do you feel the scorching sun on my back along the rocks?
Taste the bitter dust on your tongue blowing by
Feel blessed by the breeze in the clouds flowing high
Golden sun and a silver moon
Pause for a second, enjoy the scenery, then resume
Emerald tree tops that shade the protagonist
Not lacking in this blasphemous rapper spit, grab a bit
Warm yourself around the fire I've created
Twigs and branches ignite the pyres. The warmth gated
A hunger deep in my stomach, be acquainted
Unless feeling jaded, don't elate this. It's all related
Any problem handed to me becomes diminished
Tan-skinned and and second winded, anything I'll finish

[Chorus] x2
I! Travel inside my mind. I'm the problematic type of vagabond kind
I! Undergo tasks to get mine. A series of tests but I'm running out of time
This road of Trials. This road of Trials.
Like I'm defending my life in court on the stand
This road of Trials. This road of Trials.
I'm transforming into something I can't understand
Track Name: Apotheosis
I'm premier whenever I reach your ears
My peers sneer and they try to leer
But I'm a king and they're so in awe of the things
That my rap thing is astounding, pounding, rapping
On the doors of your chamber, I am announcing
My lyrics solid, not lounging or bouncing
I'm no longer the tombs of forgotten lore
Keep my raps in a closet, raven on the door: Lenore
Motivated and lifted to levels higher than giants
I'll have rebels compliant and get pilgrims defiant
Morph from a man to the ranks of exaltation
My explanation can make a wasteland have elevation
I do impossible feats, definitely
I'm the epitome of spitting viciously and readily
Shaking the world, better steady the beat
I crush. Best to be dominantly and heavily
An extra long verse to bless the ears of the listeners
Whisperers claim that I bicker but I beg to differ
I'm sicker and quicker than migrant cherry pickers
Similar to MICR, check it, light it like a wicker
I'm a Matchstick Man with a Zippo inferno flow
Click it and ignite the liquor to a fiery bolero so
I torch and scorch the beats unrecognizable
Burned to the 47th degree: undeniable

[Chorus]
Apotheosis is demonstrated at this moment
Defined as the ideal example, potent
Apotheosis is demonstrated at this moment
Defined as the quintessential, I am it's component

My opponents seem to think my focus is bogus
It's hopeless to convince em otherwise, notice
How these men are below this but are boasted
But they are a plague of locusts about to get toasted
My apotheosis is most ferocious, you should know this
My pen writes lines that are the most dope: it's
Incredible, impeccable, the treble is real special
Biting me is good for you, a dosage of vegetables
I raise the decibels and speak real intelligible
I do it because people count on me like a decimal
I'm at a state of pure knowledge and bliss
It's all in the wrist as I line them up on a grid like a list
On any given track I'm a deity of lyrics and cunning
Observe this song is cross trainers, I'm running
And gunning without shunning in specifics
I hail from the Pacific and vocalize so prolific
Rip it like my city, sure isn't typical
In fact it's real mystical and spiritual mixed so lyrical
Stay on point like icicles and ride like bicycles
I drop dimes and nickels to make it a miracle

[Chorus]
Apotheosis is demonstrated at this moment
Defined as the ideal example, potent
Apotheosis is demonstrated at this moment
Defined as the quintessential, I am it's component
Track Name: Magic Flight
[Verse 1]
Cruising at a high altitude, check what I'm about to do
I flipped the fear in this song and amped up the magnitude
I'm a magma dude spitting fire until I'm paid my dues
I'm not even at chapter two and they're asking you
Too many questions, please ask in moderation
Not going to jump out of this without consideration
A parachute that represents the absolute
Chilling in my flight suit observing so astute
So after the raptor captures the actors
I factor the tractors and leave them in laughter
The flow is ejecting the disrespecting, unsuspecting
Bogeys and dissecting the next thing without resting
Danger zone as I enter home so I always roam
And to keep up with the Jones, I vanish away like foam
No crash landing, and if you're misunderstanding
This isn't ranting and is much more than rhythmic chanting

[Chorus]
This is your captain speaking, welcome aboard
Destination: everywhere. Just look forward
Stay seated or stand, it's your decision
Next stop: prison or precision. This is your mission

This is your captain speaking, welcome aboard
Destination: everywhere. Just look forward
Stay seated or stand, it's your decision
Next stop: prison or precision. This is your mission

[Verse 2]
Taking off running, check the runways for pedestrians
The plane hasn't left again, you better check again
Because today I'm the flight coordinator
Air rhyme slayer, aero fine player. Never going wayward
Let it fly let it soar let it do all of those things
Watch it high watch it more watch it float on its wings
Glance at the boarding pass, no hoarding grass
Not that kind of high, we're just flooring gas
Past the clouds and past the realm of the sky
Up and above, beyond anything in the blink of an eye
Experience a God-like sensation of aviation
Just remember where you're going and the navigation
This indicator of greatness becomes an instigator
If the investigators see you've used it for traitors
It's a bird, it's a plane, see me on your radars
The dirigible is going for the literal stars
But the invisible flaws will prevent and postpone
Check the aerodrome and level the tone
The meteorological is no match for the prodigal
Illogical follicles that shatters the monocles
Float by the tropical and review the chronicles
More than topical and doing the impossible
Diabolical and canonical, put it together: Bioncles
This is kin to cherry: so it's untoppable

[Chorus]
This is your captain speaking, welcome aboard
Destination: everywhere. Just look forward
Stay seated or stand, it's your decision
Next stop: prison or precision. This is your mission

This is your captain speaking, welcome aboard
Destination: everywhere. Just look forward
Stay seated or stand, it's your decision
Next stop: prison or precision. This is your mission
Track Name: Home
Back home where the coffee stains the air
The roses paint what we wear and the rain doesn't care
A birthplace of beauty and known for Walton
But on our Hip-Hop will the assault ever end?
Riding the MAX line downtown, city center
I ride with the homeless, business oriented and renters
The condo honchos and the culture here mondo
Skip ponds though and you'll end up needing a poncho
We're not known for the way we blow up headphones
But we will rock like stones and remain way toned
Portland, the bridges, we pivot, our lyrics
And live it, so vivid, equip it, count it like a digit
I thrive like I-5 and revive the sound live
It may not seem like it but Musics our wives
Keep Portland weird, and we keep Portland wired
It's like we live inside of PDX: we never get tired
Transfer to the bus nine where I write my lines
Flash a bus pass and find a corner to recline
Glancing at the river trying to mimic it's flow
Zip up my rain coat to the throat, it's time to go
The hipsters and the richer both alike
Can enjoy what I give inside of my mic
I've got the fresh Nikes and the fresher voice
That is contained in a ziplock with the poise
My noise comparable to the sounds on 82nd
As many strip clubs as churches so just repent it
From Lents to Woodstock all the way to the West Hills
We remain ill and chill just like you know we will
Am it, Am I why the ground's never dry?
Worst day of the year, saddle up: let's ride
An umbrella? We never even heard of it
Here we let it flood, never ever burn a bit
Unless you're talking trees, hugging and smoking
Never choking and only Brandon Roy-ing: stroking
What else? A metropolis of all things intelligent
From Pearls to Industrial, we are the residents
Track Name: Master of Two Worlds
In myth, this step is usually represented by a transcendental hero like Jesus or Buddha.
For a human hero, it may mean achieving a balance between the material and spiritual.
The person has become comfortable and competent in both the inner and outer worlds.

[Verse 1]
It's the fox, vulpine with the rhymes
I grow fine like wine over time divine
Cunning and crafty, you cannot match me
I'll attack thee and blast heat distractedly
Quicker on my feet, above all don't compete
I complete beats to create treats elite
My genius is comparable to a zenith, beam it
And conceive it as the sleekness of sheik: it's
Obviously an oddity like a lobotomy
But I oughta be a monopoly, bite it like broccoli
Excuse the remarkable articles of my audibles
Got a rocket soul that is basically not chartable
Takumi like the eye ware, but I'm aware
That the stares toward me are un-rare like my flairs

[Chorus] x2
I am the Master
On a whole other level
From the stones to the bezel
And the tone of the treble
I hone on this metal

[Verse 2]
Never been offered that American love or
Coke in green bottles, they don't make it anymore
But my paramour and the metaphors
Pour in the core of my knowledge in the door
Or the window if it's left open, unbroken
Like my spirit remains unspoken, not a token
Just a reflection of the my society at large
So take charge of the change you want, please push on
I'm a consumer and a loser trying to be cooler
But with those whispers going around and the rumors
That should fuel the buzz and create a sensation
Deaf with the words, I'm lost at Penn Station
Close my eyes and imagine something better
Together untethered, my thoughts aren't that clever

[Chorus] x2
I am the Servant
For a whole other purpose
On the soul with the cursive
My goal isn't worthless
I won't fold, never nervous

[Verse 3]
Savage on songs, street fighter
Cut cabbage like lawns, beat ciphers
Average is long, heat writer
Maverick too strong, feat delighter
Magic be gone, meet the viper
Labyrinth dawn, seek the pied piper
Arisen with more angles than a prism, glisten
And listen to the bars like clanking of a prison
My words gives a man without imagination wings
It re crowns defeated kings and gives meaning to things
A gateway to unlocking my brain and psyche
Regrettably the thought processes will spite me
So I spit gutter and hard with flow like butter
But the words I utter become a prophet's mutter
If I rap scrilla: a guerrilla spitter rocking chinchilla
Will I be able to slip champion sound like J Dilla?

[Chorus]
I am the Master
On a whole other level
From the stones to the bezel
And the tone of the treble
I hone on this metal
I am the Servant
For a whole other purpose
On the soul with the cursive
My goal isn't worthless
I won't fold, never nervous
Track Name: KickStart
Check out my reflection in different directions
All clear no matter my complexion is
Listen to obscure references like old librarians
Back to the future in a delorean or other variants
I am failing this so when I get aided I stated
With my wiped slate then I am contemplated
I'm feeling over analytical, by far very critical
They're acting cynical, I believe in miracles
Like on 34th street, so instead it's this beat
I am not complete but I will not have defeat
In fact, I'm inglorious like bastards
Get this CD mastered to the masses faster
If I talk about drug dealing or hot wheeling
Will the fans and the records have a good feeling?
But I don't have any of that inside myself
What's a boy to do? Share my lyrical wealth.

I'm just an anti-hero, kind of like Dexter
But instead Professor, this is my lecture
And my conjecture is in reality my recital
With more verses than the Bible, I start to file
Like a trial that will render as I dismember
You're a small fry, I'm a giant bender: return to sender
Does not compute, I silence you, put it on mute
I'm a remote controller here with no dispute
I'm messing up rewind buttons with this something
Because my lyrics are busting, much to trusting
And you're wearing out the fast forward
You're never heard and what you say is quite absurd
My interns could you make your own words burn
Yearn for a spot in my term, better go learn
Get schooled you fool, I'm the principle
It's quite simple though: this will be biblical

My lyrics are similar to hieroglyphics, pivots
Moves and grooves, has class like High School Civics
I rip it like Trail Blazer veterans, I'm better than
Most of your temperaments, don't even mention them
I split em then into dividends
These simpletons are shaking heads back and forth like Wimbledon
I layer my songs with a kind of eligible treble
So for the rebels I pedal my stern mettle
I speak non fiction kind of diction with no friction
But have an addiction to writing with yellow dixons
I break the rap factions into bad fractions
I'm laying on a track like my back got traction
I punch lines and kick track lists backless
So when they get maskless it turns out tactless
I practice with massive tactics that turn a wack diss
Into a masterless attack that gets cracked with this
