Feed Me Beats… i'm hungry son.

lyrics

Yes indeed let’s proceed with the plot my recipe is the expertise for the knock got the specialty specially fly for the fam and i got that extra cheese on that pie in the pan
I’m a chef and i’m deaf but i sign with the best ain’t blind but i’m kind more nice than the rest you no pet and no threat like mice in a nest in one breath i throw my microphone right through your chest call that a test if you don’t pass then die a good death if you do come through and you can smell the success I’m Johnny Quest on this vocab i live in the lab getting every thing they didn’t even want me to have haters stay mad i’m breaking bad in a good way you said you understood because that’s all you really could say some days i sit in a daze and wish I could stay when i reminisce on those old neighborhood days

scientist when it comes to writin’ this iron first more than typin’ i’m describin’ global climate shifts strive to survive i and i for enlightenment and if you’re hearing this right now i’m finding it

i’m in the kitchen benefitting from attentiveness from ten digits and a tight fitted tennis dress genuine and in the flesh love it when she cut it fresh teeth marks you can see where they cut her flesh when the heat sparks you need more than street smarts or a peace march to defeat mars earth carries deep scars third rock boy more fly like a bird flock real raw southpaw choppin’ down your bean stalk detox to retox shitty liquor and cheap shots city slicker switch the picture listen to the leap frogs play leap frog with these dogs and wake up with fleas i couldn’t speak on it if it didn’t happen to me
I am strong I am might I right to be wrong I am light I am dark I am writing a song I am here and beyond I am already gone I am leap year each year ring the alarm

Son scientist when it comes to writin’ this iron fist more than typin’ i’m describin’ global climate shifts some strive to survive i and i for enlightenment and if you’re hearing this right now



Found myself on a lost mission i told me to stop trippin’ never be a victim as long as your clocks tickin’ you’re not different than anyone nobody’s not different sober or twisted we all get lifted first we fall then we crawl as an infant then learn to walk and to talk and to listen to look isn’t vision cook with intention don’t ask for permission ask for forgiveness While the sun shines minds trip like spaceships
At night time mine writes rhymes and make hits In the darkness start with a spark and build fires Set the world ablaze may these flames be far higher money to earn money to burn money putting so many bodies up in the earn so better study and learn and so that death is of no concern so you always stay blessed by the fresh made word

scientist when it comes to writin’ this iron fist more than typin’ i’m describin’ global climate shifts strive to survive i and i for enlightenment and if you’re hearing this right now
