Whats a life without the heart?
A mind without the smarts?
A drive without the car?
Or a finish line without the start?
A design without art
A light without morning
A sky without stars?
A night without dark?
A fire without a torch
A knife without a sword
A riot without a war
A fight without a scar
A crime without a court and
Dying without glory
Ask yourself this, Would you live a lie
Or would you die to live?
And then as the time drifts, My mind sits
And Im reminded not to forget that
My time is limited but my mind is limitess
So I turn my back and the past is the past
Tell the ladies and tell the gents
This is that ish with hella intelligence
For the critics, he's helen keller to them
Since he can't see or hear em hes hear to see the since
They say I'm the face of the future, eyes nose
But lets make it phase sooner, time portal
Just need a mic and accord like the four door
And support like some ports on the shore, Ya
Success is what I need, No UFC
I'll play the game untill I'm holding 2 ESPYs
These rappers are ehhhhhhhh so I'm the MC squared
And their like 2012, not going anywhere.....
They all say the same, "I'm sicka than AIDS fool"
But I say their fakin like they stayed home from school
It makes a lot sense... That you, can make a lot sense
If you stopped talkin about how you make a lotta cents
Anybody can get a vid on world star hip hop
With nothing but some girls and cars in the song
You're makin some pop and paying for props
And If hands make a pop its cuz you paid for props
For keeps, It's not about the image to me
Cuz an image is a picture and a picture is imagery
It's more about the inner me and who I'm meant to be
Which is dopamean it's like a methanphedime
An IQ of over average is an under estimate
Testaman with the testament and Ill guess and get it
I sketh in depth without corrective lenses
And end up with something reccomended to muesams
I flo from the heart, To make a work of art
That could sell allday anyday like Noahs Ark
With fans like a shark, And plans of Mozart
I don't need the mainstream I can ro where I want
This is what I live for and I know what I'd kill for and
If you don't feel me after you see my portaits
Your vision is distorted and without good eyes
You can't realize what the real looks like
