Lyrics

- VERSE -
Bring your A-game inside the booth/
spray flames and light a fuse/
break chains, untie a noose/
make way for higher truth/
I kill it every time I get on - son, what you trying to do/
peace homie, beasts only - no one invited you/
patiently polish the verse prior to publishing/
no you can't predict the next line in my rhyme if you're wondering/
I'm trying to make the top 10 plays - rise up and dunk it in/
nobody seen it coming just like that Tyson and Douglas thing/
been a long dark night and a massive agenda/
my life is a drama / tragic come-dy with action + adventure/
whoopin' Mr Han's monkey ass - the Dragon has entered/
spitting knowledge until I'm a wise old man with some dentures/
stay rehearsing, researching the gift deep beneath surface/
and seek purpose, keep working to third degree burn/
it the beat's hurting, sneaking off and calling for help, chief/
I murder it like it's the last song on the LP/

- HOOK -
It's guaranteed that you'll die/
so what are you leaving behind/
does the thought of being forgotten put a tear in your eye/
one day you'll take your last breath and though the family mourns/
make every last word count and immortality is yours/

- VERSE -
I'm trying to escape this dark place like I Am David/
wish we could fly away and see the lights of Vegas/
to living like we're famous, until we finally make it/
seeing the world through the windows from inside the spaceship/
looking at hollywood stars thinking they're flesh and bone/
one of the only differences is they own and don't rent their homes/
telling you to "be original" and sweat their clothes/
it's not enough celebs dead yet, who's next to roast?/
I've got a long list I'd like to share, but it isn't important/
too busy building a fortress, mixing the bricks and the mortar/
so once I've built up a fortune - it stays intact and strong/
some people's five minutes of fame don't make it past the gong/
Hulk smash the song, an pound fists in the concrete/
not ripping this raw beat would be killing me softly/
I deliver it harshly like - "you're fired! get to steppin'!"/
rhyme writer and his weapon, now hiring some henchmen/

- HOOK -
It's guaranteed that you'll die/
so what are you leaving behind/
does the thought of being forgotten put a tear in your eye/
one day you'll take your last breath and though the family mourns/
make every last word count and immortality is yours/


- VERSE -
Every last word counts, everybody's listening close/
most of y'all's lyrics are jokes, too damn simple and slow/
all you can talk about is brand names, bitches and hoes/
it's pitiful yo, go fix yourself a big cup of joe/
it's gonna be a long dark night, but I'll try to guide you/
light the fire inside you so you don't try do what I do/
while my homie stays playing his guitar like a beast/
the monster-is released/
too late to bother calling police/
some people really hope to get themselves off of the streets/
like homeless people on a summer day exhausted from heat/
flowing like BP oil and I'm letting all of it leak/
rhyming is too fucking easy man - I'm falling asleep/
uh-oh - you're starting to tweak/
holding my hand way out and reach/
my peoples worldwide on this land - stay family/
these haters hating hard, god damn they're mad at me/
double flawless victory AND fatality/

- DRUM SOLO -

- HOOK -
It's guaranteed that you'll die/
so what are you leaving behind/
does the thought of being forgotten put a tear in your eye/
one day you'll take your last breath and though the family mourns/
make every last word count and immortality is yours/
