On this journey of life, I'm on the road to self-improvement Before my body entombment, I'll start this sleeper cell movement Till the whole world is fluent in the language of peace I refuse to get down on my knees, give up my piece, call it a lease With an option to buy, there's wise guys meet the chief With underworld ties, then hog ties, loose ends with the knot of a sailor If boss lives ever seem to fall out of favor, we all die Safety measures, secret locks so deep they're worth more than any sacred treasure If it's work or leisure, I got you guilty and your hated pleasure The weighted pressure of trying to please the Joneses, keeping up with the Kardashians Watching beauty cashing in, while the beast is bathing in the poisons of their wrath again Fastening their belts as they fashion they selves The leaders of the new school, breeders of new schools, got you following these new rules So many years passed and I watched myself fail Constantly in battles, my ship was out to sail I never took a knee, not even to protest The shit that I've seen goes beyond the grotesque I slow step with the devil, dance off beat Sung off key when I let off my heat, but I don't seek punishment against my aggressor And I won't use history as my oppressor Learn to teach like a professor, so my reach could breach the pressures of not following suit Sleeper cell is here to get you out the worst situation, whatever demons you face in Vig will show the world that there's more to the equation Too many residents, losing sleep over these presidents Dead or alive, I'll be the voice for these veterans Just settle in, sit down, be humble Anyone at any age, you get clowned and stumbled There's no prize for the pussies who blatantly cross sides All die for my niggas that ride and lost lives Constantly shook from the pages of my war book 12-gauge shot to a jaw they couldn't look Damn, keepin' it stealth, thinkin' daily about my health Pull a burner off the shelf like I'm takin' a breath Both parents are gone, carry black, carry chrome Big poppy, rolling stone, where I sleep is my home Fast ride to the earth, land, sea, and search Grab the whole damn globe on a commoners purse Niggas fight over turf, but to me, what's worse I can't really decide, the semi or the fully versed From the stroller to the hearse, presume the unpredictable Gun salute life, rap belief, that's the ritual You know what that nigga said Consolute life, rap belief, that's the ritual
