[Verse Asheru]

Picture perfect
I paint a perfect picture
Situated in a frame
Incubated in this game
Laid properly by the architects
Builders of a movement
Their dreams became the blueprints for our
Self improvement
Years later I ask what are we doing?
The visual's been distorted
Negative image recorded
And every uttered word
About ki's, flips and birds
Whips, chains, bitches
This that and the third
The mentality is heard
So I play the black sheep
My keep it real ain't defined
By me having a rap sheet
It's from having the balls
To defy mans laws
And follow higher order like a soldier
On the border between
My base instinct
And sitting on my throne
Crown tilted
Where every word I spit
You can feel it
And everyday's a test
Whether I pass or fail
You can fake it till you make it
Or face to face with the real

Project struck looking for luck dreaming
I aim high for the bullseye targets are struck
My destiny, reflection of a kings self portrait

[Verse 2Saint]
The Truth Is
We All
Should Collaborate
You Don't Understand it
Okay Let Me Ellaborate
My Cousin Got Killed
I vent So I don't retaliate
Its harder to advocate
When clients just agitate
The people who aggregate
The money for funding
Tuned in with the universe see the prize
So im lunging
Thinking bout trips to London
Mapped out in My head
You know that manifestation
Wil lead you straight to the bread
Sadly the reality proves they don't even care
Im feeling like beanie Seigal
I feel it all in the air
To shy away from the Troubles I read works by Voltaire
And learned not to be violent but keep my head up smiling
Kept my head up smiling while I was listening to Pac
Had habbits of grabbing a book, Instead of a Glock
Saw my boy get shot, Went into a state of Shock
My life is a movie and im controlling the plo

[Verse Tajai]

Respect Yourself, Reflect Yourself
But don't sweat yourself, boy, check yourself
Mind your health, don't wait for wealth, create your wealth
Then disseminate your wealth
There's always somebody who wouldn't mind to help
And probably wouldn't mind your help as well
Cause we're anointed beings, Queens & Kings
Creators of beautiful things, the ties that bind
Time's strings, at times it seems that
These facts are buried deep in our subconscious
Release that! ACTualize Black
Maximize all three eyes, mobilize
Harmonize, Smooth & Nice, improve your lives
Ensure that every resource is utilized
Pray that as you grow old that you grow wise
So when things occur you understand and you know why
Strengthen your bloodlines & family ties
Cause without that we all die, We Multi-
Faceted, hardrock, amethysts
Standing in the shadow of a battle that was won by a pacifist

[Hook Anthony Rico Cuts]
Project struck looking for luck dreaming
I aim high for the bullseye targets are struck
My destiny reflection of a kings self portrait
