Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Yo, Well before philosophy and Homer wrote the Odyssey
Before I took a lump of Plato and made a Socrates
Before Shakespeare's tragedies, the scrolls and the Pharisees
Dinosaurs walked the earth and flew above the tall trees

I'm a tyrannical Tyrannosaurus cuz I Rex everything with a thesaurus
I'm a prophet spitting comets burn down the forest with my chorus
Lyrical Velociraptor, pack hunting rapper, I'm filling up the chapters
Words of the rapture, no laughter, I'm talking about disasters

A lot of different factors what could it be, Let's spit paleontology
Scientific master, come talk to me, rap faster, consciously
Bet there never ever could have been a bigger bomb blast
That rivaled the size of that comet

Or was it a blizzard that killed all the lizards
Ask me another question I'm on it
This is science history, Cold blooded with wizardry
The sources of my sorcery fossil fueling delivery

Obviously we really want to know what, happened so long ago but
All these different theories got me crazy going nuts
Then boom! The comet hits. Let's just use our common sense
The ash in the atmosphere made them throw fits, killed everything like lickity lickity split

Most likely what happened though, is what you already have been told
But I bet you didn't know that the impact zone was somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico
Mesozoic I'm flowing like the boiling ocean, not knowing which way the wind's blowing
Not frozen, it was ferocious explosions interwoven

Scary like the Omen, most things died, but a few species survived
Makes me misty eyed to know 65 million years ago the dinos all died

Like GZA, this another classic, except this one is Jurassic
Spit crazy fantastic Triassic convulsion spastics
Lyrically, listen to me, flyer than any Pterodactyl could be
Now you can see, passionately, I'm a Thesaurus Rex with a capital "T"
