Through meditation I program my heart 
To beat breakbeats and hum basslines on exhalation 
I burn seven day candles that melt 
Into twelve inch circles on my mantle  
And I can fade worlds in and out with my mixing patterns 
Letting the Earth spin as I blend in Saturn 
Niggaz be like spinning windmills, braiding hair 
Locking, popping, as the sonic force 
Of the soul keeps the planets rocking 
The beat don't stop when, soulless matter blows 
Into the cosmos, trying to be stars 
The beat don't stop when, Earth sends out satellites 
To spy on Saturnites and control Mars 
'Cause niggaz got a peace treaty with Martians 
And we be keepin em up to date with sacred gibberish 
Like "sho' nuff" and "it's on" 
The beat goes on, the beat goes on, the beat goes "ohm" 

And I roam through the streets of downtown Venus 
Trying to auction off monuments of Osiris' severed penis 
But they don't want no penis in Venus 
For androgynous cosmology sets their spirits free 
And they neither men nor women be 
But they be down with a billion niggaz who have yet to see 
That interplanetary truth is androgynous 
And they be sending us shout outs through shooting stars 
And niggaz be like, "Whattup?" and talking Mars 
'Cause we are solar and regardless of how far we roam from home 
The universe remains our center, like "ohm" 

I am no Earthling, I drink moonshine on Mars 
And mistake meteors for stars cause I can't hold my liquor 
But I can hold my breath and ascend like wind to the black hole 
And play galaxaphones on the fire escapes of your soul 
Blowing tunes through lunar wombs, impregnating stars 
Giving birth to suns, that darken the skins that skin our drums 
And we be beating infinity over sacred hums 
Spinning funk like myrrh until Jesus comes 
And Jesus comes every time we drum 
And the moon drips blood and eclipses the sun 
And out of darkness comes a 
And out of darkness comes a
And out of darkness comes the
