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/Play 'EVERY LAST WORD' on YouTubePlay 'EVERY LAST WORD' on iTunes/Apple Music Play 'EVERY LAST WORD' on Spotify Play 'EVERY LAST WORD' on CD Baby Play 'EVERY LAST WORD' on Amazon
