Now I'm a monster in the booth All I do is spit the truth Come at me I'll toss you up Might even let a couple loose Thew Thew thew Now ya bleeding oops What did you make me do I Shoot first ask questions later So I can see right through I entertained the thought Of standing on corners slanging rock Building up an empire block by Solitary block Running them streets till I was a boss Kingpin status at any cost But then I was like nah That's way too stereotypical Perpetrating stereotypes for me Would be atypical And the choice was very difficult It made me very miserable And this is the route I chosed Luckily I care the most But You are outside of my purview If I see you I will curve you Because of that you now lay In a puddle of red goo That makes my shoes Like some red bottoms That's Christian Lou's But I move in the shadows So your cage isn't rattled When I came at you With a surgeons scalpel To perform surgery On your hippocampal Regions of your grey matter To make you an example That Pressing Slash Vin Means will get you trampled Consider this warning as ample I'm a monster in the booth All I do is spit the truth Come at me I'll toss you up Might even let a couple loose Thew Thew thew Now ya bleeding oops What did you make me do I'll Shoot first ask questions later So I can see right through But I am not that guy anymore That's what I got shooters for They love the blood and gore Perpetually in a state of war I'm sick and tired of the flunkies Loving music off of junk heaps What do I gotta do to get your Attention to bump these Tracks that make the powers that be Feel the unease That is key to unlocking I may be on to something Revolutionary And downright scary I hope you really hear me I hope you really really hear me Inhumane psychology Digging into what I say like archeology Peeling back the layers so delicately So when you understand it will be Overwhelmingly And without a shadow of a doubt I got this excruciating minutiaé Figured out I got a keen sense of awareness And the thing I really fear is The urgency of the situation Won't come near this Fever pitch that I'm conveyin That puts me in demand Then I try to explain but you just don't understand I'm a monster in the booth All I do is spit the truth Come at me I'll toss you up Might even let a couple loose Thew Thew thew Now ya bleeding oops what did you make me do I'll Shoot first ask questions later So I can see right through I implore you To get your knowledge up No more excuses man Pretend like this is your one and only Chance Or your last dance Find some intellectual curiosity Then Attack it with the same ferocity Cause knowledge is power you see And it's guarded by the powers that be They don't want you to be free They wanna control you Modern day slavery They wanna use money to wage wars, wage wars They also use our skin color for race wars Track us on our phones On little chipboards And they always stab us in the back Never face towards How can freedom be so restrictive Is America the definition I think something's missing Cause this feels more like a prison Oops I meant prism Don't wanna buck the system Or I might get missin Or come down with a rare condition Or probably get offed by an assassin Cause of the questions I be asking
