lyrics

The die is cast I’m past the point of no return one last look back at the bridges that I burned during frigid times I learned to rhyme in flames tamed the fire inside to provide a change rearranged the design took the picture out the frame read between the lines of the scriptures that they claim came from God Jehovah Yahweh or Allah they are all the same the only difference is the name man understand self interest is to blame for the maiming of religion a unifying force that’s been used for division though they share the same source Muslims Jews and Christians refuse to listen to logic not Young Sinatra but I come with that hot shit flawlessly I switch the topic like I said before I’m not in it for the profit I’m here to open doors like a locksmith in fact I got this pick set like Shaq then I roll to the rack catch the pass slam and smash the glass having fun with puns but let’s get back on track formula 1 is done so here’s a second batch spent years in the lab but never became a rat I became quite clever as I learned to rap on this endeavor from which I’m never turning back to uncover the truth to find the art of facts to illustrate the proof and carve it into wax millions starve in this world but food we don’t lack 100 billion pounds thrown in the trash in the USA last year alone this is what I have to say about the place I call home a place where waste is second nature

Finally I have found my passion yeah it took awhile but now it’s everlasting never masking my convictions I mastered my afflictions man understand hip hop is the prescription if you’re living your life but you feel something’s missing turn up the volume and give me a listen turn up the volume and give me a listen
Finally I have found my passion yeah it took awhile but now it’s everlasting never masking my convictions I mastered my afflictions man understand hip hop is the prescription if you’re living your life but you feel something’s missing turn up the volume and give me a listen turn up the volume and give me a listen

The place where waste is second nature filling the land instead of the hands of our neighbors damn it’s a shame but in the name of our Creator I will take a stand and reveal my plan I don’t need to plead the fifth let me tell you who I am spliff lit in my left hand mic in my right as I leapt the sands of time while others slept at night I bring my dreams to life once unseen but now but now I shine bright yes I fight the darkness like Maurice Harkless a Trailblazer through this maze where many failed in past days but I stay on target never tarnish or rust but to be honest right now that’s pretty tough goddamn what the fuck how is this man in power how has the White House become the Trump Tower sour taste in my mouth a disgrace to what the United States is all about if your faith ain’t Christian or you face ain’t white he is on a mission to take away your rights imagine this if your skin is dark you’re getting stopped and frisked and if you walk of a mosque you’re getting put on a list when in fact he is the true terrorist there is no debate he manipulates fear and ignorance to create hate if your faith ain’t Christian or you face ain’t white he is on a mission to take away your rights imagine this if your skin is dark you’re getting stopped and frisked and if you walk of a mosque you’re getting put on a list when in fact he is the true terrorist there is no debate he manipulates fear and ignorance to create hate

Finally I have found my passion yeah it took awhile but now it’s everlasting never masking my convictions I mastered my afflictions man understand hip hop is the prescription if you’re living your life but you feel something’s missing turn up the volume and give me a listen turn up the volume and give me a listen
Finally I have found my passion yeah it took awhile but now it’s everlasting never masking my convictions I mastered my afflictions man understand hip hop is the prescription if you’re living your life but you feel something’s missing turn up the volume and give me a listen turn up the volume and give me a listen
