lyrics

Hook
We lost one, three blind men walking, one wise man talking – here to see the son in the spirit he be the ghost and you know that I spit the most, put your glasses in the air, say cheers and give toast – we lost one.

Verse 1
So tell me what’s the cost of the game son, tell what’s the cost of the game son/
Paid the cost just to be the Boss, paid the cost just to be the Boss/
But ain’t no flossing B, you see these verses is magic but ain’t no sorcery/
They’re tossing leaves at the feet of a King, got Geppetto on the track no Pinocchio on strings/
We lost one but the world gained, how many people feel your pain? How many people will disdain cause they flow rivers and they wield this rain/
When bombs blast will my songs last in this wicked world, when bombs blast will my songs last in this wicked world/
Grown men weep, Women creep in the Night of day, children have no say see they’re sandboxed in, they’re sandboxed in/
Stones bleed but this brick is louder, they said stones bleed but this brick is louder/
I spit this chowder, they eating with their bellies full, they take your resources and get their bellies full/

Hook

Verse 2
Okay…okay…I was playing with you on the first verse, so let me reverse verse, let me reverse my verses/
From way back, the place is like Bali, we’re blacker than Mali but, but they ain’t no segregation/
The earth still shakes in Haiti but they just want to replace me, a legendary emcee preceded before my time/
I spit these words in rhyme form but never conform to this, see I was born for this – don’t even know what is the norm to this/
When bombs blast will my songs last in this wicked world, when bombs blast will my songs last in this wicked world/
Flow is so Apocalyptic the message in song in Cryptic, while they’re trying to be a statistic, I‘ll remain a mystic – I’m here!
(Never fear, even in the darkest Night, stay strong)
Hook
