[Verse 1]
Pre-written, pre-planned, pre-thought out
Preconceived notions prepare to be sought out
And found I'll keep on looking 'til the ocean's thawed out
For groundbreaking sounds shaking towns taking down electrical fences
The crown of unethical princes must continue in different trends
I gotta admit I feel ingenuine with metaphors of violence
I won't settle for moral silence
I don't deal with prominent symbols of dominance
Don't wanna talk like tyrants
Oh, no - emergency sirens
So low nobody knows the fire is blowing the virus
Over the tired eyelids into the swirling iris
Pupils are getting cornea
I guess you could say I'm warning ya
It's coming towards us now so of course when I'm out there
I bend swords into plowshares
Bored of the loud snare
Trap set puns divorced from god getting snatched by guns
I'm forcing the crowd to be more than just horses and cows
Do something never would have done before

[Hook]
Gotta feel where you woulda just thought before
Gotta walk slow where you woulda run before
Gotta think were you wouda just fought before
Gotta talk where you would used a gun before
Gotta sneak out where you got caught before
Find out about those that come before
Gotta seek out what you never sought before
Gotta do what you never woulda done before

Blue whale jumping over a cruise ship, old woman jumping in front of a gun
A monk: self-immolation, a man in front of a tank, doing what's never been done
A madman keeping his cool in the heat of the south
Speaking truth to power from a bleeding mouth
A flower alive inside a brick wall
A girl hides birds and dies with lips stalled
Four black ones from different parts of town
See a white one dragged from a truck on a screen
All four rush down pull him up from the ground
What does that mean? What does that mean?
What does that mean? What does that mean?
What does that mean? What does that mean?
What does that mean? What does that mean?

Gotta feel where you woulda just thought before
Gotta walk slow where you woulda run before
Gotta think were you wouda just fought before
Gotta talk where you would used a gun before
Gotta sneak out where you got caught before
Find out about those that come before
Gotta seek out what you never sought before
Gotta do what you never woulda done before

Gotta feel where you woulda just thought before
Gotta walk slow where you woulda run before
Gotta think were you wouda just fought before
Gotta talk where you would used a gun before
Gotta sneak out where you got caught before
Find out about those that come before
Gotta seek out what you never sought before
Gotta do what you never woulda done before

Gotta feel where you woulda just thought before
Gotta walk slow where you woulda run before
Gotta think were you wouda just fought before
Gotta talk where you would used a gun before
And the ones that come before find you understand
And hum 'til we roar with thunder
Roll where you would thrown rocks before
Gotta do what you never woulda done before

[Verse 2]
I prefer to write a rhyme so my elegance shines
Try ta bind elephant spines together with mine
For the hell of it catch you with the hook like a halibut
Delicate the kind that's not used to battle

No matter how fat I stay cool from buttermilk to rice dream
Liquid but I refresh you like an ice cream
Freeze that you swallow in the heat I'm followin' the beat
Like a sneeze and a bless you, addressed to your soul cause I might not know your street
On my knees I confess to you even if we never even meet
We greet still I met you, I let you see
The gears spinnin' in my brain stormin' fresh new beats
Cyclonin' went roamin' in Japan like a ronin, then increased maturity like test tube sheep

If you like these rhymes say "whoo" and throw a penny How many do I have?
Hey, d'you know how many donuts fit into eight U-Hauls?
I got so much new shit that I take two stalls
I break through walls and I climb old fences
Make you all fall when I rhyme whole sentences
Catastrophe could anoint my genesis
Naturally it's how to find snake pits
Stepping out of line, make hits
Land good, point wrap the set up, match you're beat like tennis
I could say I flow in the streets like Venice
But then it's a lie I'm just proud of that simile
Rap is more common then Dave, Matt, or Emily
So I say family prayers about bread and spread, preserve the crust; J-A-M-I-E
Fill up your cup, just say "when"
My playpen's a car lot
Hop roof to roof and spar God
Who's realist illustrated by Farhad
Prepare a buzz, throwing sighed promos
You know I rhymed but you don't know where it was
Like a pantomime wall you stall and scratch your temple
Can't deny you what you saw It's that simple
Phantom rhymes, alone with no henchmen
No freestyle, no salary, no pension
It's hot today, I've got a lot to say because I'm sentient
Hey, and I thought you were payin' attention?

Maybe that was silly of me
But stop noddin your head unless you really agree
I'm seein' right and wrong inside lifelong winks like Odin
Listen to the words cause I wrote 'em

And maybe that was silly of me
But stop nodding your head unless you really agree
And if you dis I listen, won't counterattack
We're all pretty weak (Some of my best friends is wack)

And maybe that was silly of me
But stop nodding your head unless you really agree
So let's see do you like the song or does it stink?
Come on, am I right or wrong, whaddya think?
Never heard God talk, but I see lifelong winks like Odin

You can stand there stiff and just stare like a totem
(James, Jamie, Jonny Five, or John Brown)
Sag down low or hang out like a scrotum
(Jonny 5, Jonny 5-5, doing what you never even thought of)
Go nuts and make funny noise like a modem
(The Flobots is serious, the Flobots is serious)
But listen to the words cause I wrote them
