You never knew a flow this real, I’m known for skill
Metaphors on overkill, grab your hat, hold the bill
Flip it back and close the deal
Sip that jack, the souls I build
I nourish with my rhymes while radio’s like a kosher meal
Flow so surreal, you can call me Salvador
Go so for real from within, the others out the door
Peripheral glimpses into my inner most thought
Subliminal trips it’s my rhymes enter those spots
I don’t just boast talk, I’m ghost taught by a whole lot
Of dead prophets and poets, my opponents just know not
The living are the dreams of the dead
You hear their nightmares with silent screams in your head
Don’t believe what you’ve read, but believe what I speak
I saw God in the mirror, don’t believe what they preach
You’re in need of some peace then achieve it this week
Release your beliefs and let your soul breathe

Various incantations and similar variations
Of authoritative invasions have stifled inspirations
It takes the courageous to break free of the makeshift
Prison of society and finally live in greatness
The racist mindset keeps your heart from pure love
They use it to control more than your sure of
As a white male, I tell you, I hear bullshit on the daily
I look the same as them, they pull it off crazy
Statements, ignorance on display
You racist, insignificant, timid bitch waste away
They only say this shit cause they feel so small inside
But keep quiet as fuck when their black friends arrive
That’s right, I know white hip-hoppers, even latinos
That are even more racist than Eastwood in Gran Tarino
Their heroes are black and they still come misdirected
And to live hip-hop culture, I don’t get that connection

Critical thinking is epitomal to breaking
The signal we’re creating in this digital age we’re faking
You stream in that news and believe in the views
And see it as truth, apply reason you tube
Who knew? The government would bow the fuck out
And let us lie to ourselves sitting on our couch
Fox News misconstrues and intrudes on the truth
Like the propaganda arm of the third Reich in a suit
When rumors are truth, then the future is doomed
The whole population like Fortunato entombed
Deluded masses with the soothing graphics
Lose their assets and assume their happy
A human tragedy, to infuse a battery
In the prefrontal cavity and we wonder tacitly
This is savagery, challenge your own essence
Don’t even believe me, find your own point of reference
