Every little step we take breaks the dreams
Of a warm pig itching to re-stitch the seams

Namsayin, when I walk, I want to break concrete!

Ox'll spit some shit that'll reflect off the mirror
My light beams are mad bright, 
They stay clever
Yo challenge an Ox member, 

Get a vow severed
Found your body in the desert (scavenger's dessert)
Yeah yeah I rap tight like Saran
Plus enter battles talkin' shit like 

'Look mom, no hands!'
I'm tired of cats tryin' to sum me
You can't add that far yet, 
That counting is far fetched

I treat MC like canines
Throwin' words at they face 
To see if they bite when they catch
I told you my poetry sponsors Gillette

Now you standing there 
Wit razors in your head like barrettes
Man, if the mic had ass cheeks
The sticker in my hand 

Would say priority seating
And man, I dunno if it was me or you
But your girl was on my dick like she was teethin'
You play the role/roll, 

I'll play the poppy seed on top of you
The godspeed is actual, 
That doesn't mean I act usual
One of the first emcees to give 

The crowd full attention
'Cause you need love and affection

If we could absorb every star in the sky
We noticed some shine brighter than others, 
You wonder why
It's the simple things in life 
That turn the peasants into leaders
And we know the differences between 
The walkers and the sleepers

If we could absorb every star in the sky
We noticed some shine brighter than others, 
You wonder why
It's the simple things in life 
That turn the peasants into leaders
And we know the differences between 
The walkers and the sleepers

I boogie with picket-a-vision, 
Carbon based stickler
City piss aroma, 
Therapy coma, clone sitter
Itching to pigeon hole villain soul magnet
Feelings activate
Passionate the germ, 
And the book met the worm
I hold a book of matches captive to flashin'
For some need flat line
Be a thick fatigue episode, 
Brewed in batches
Flirted curse at perked nurse, 
Broken skeleton patches
One muddy veteran collapsed 
The untapped resource center
Housing style pageants
My little limbs lassoed catered to wings
While mankind's baby steps 
Break dirt and demon

I know a crossbreed strung well in the key of
Mass times weight times tame semantics
Encompassing that which splits lips 
But never supply and demand it
To hell wit plastic, ooh yeah it's splendid
Tap it on the shoulder, 
Grab it, tag it, apprehend it
Lend it to the devil of a friend it, 
Wrench it back, mend it again
It still never renders suspended 
But finicky picket fences
Now every toy dreams to manufacture hearts
Start with the diving parts and the blueprints
You follow the precedence
Set by war pigs of a yesteryear
Let the tears pray
Skip a stone over the reservoir 
To shake the whole charade
Hmm gun play the tumors platoon
I couldn't see
I fell asleep holding an Appleseed, 
Woke up holding a tree
The only bridge I ever burned 
Along this legacy at dance
Was the one that linked 
The cities of Prosperity and Chance

If we could absorb every star in the sky
We noticed some shine brighter than others, 
You wonder why
It's the simple things in life 
That turn the peasants into leaders
And we know the differences between 
The walkers and the sleepers

If we could absorb every star in the sky
We noticed some shine brighter than others, 
You wonder why
It's the simple things in life 
That turn the peasants into leaders
And we know the differences between 
The walkers and the sleepers
