Ayo lemme show you where the action is
a place you gotta visit if you haven't been
My tracks get stacked on elaborate paths
never mapped on the graph for the average jim

As if it mattered
frame it
black border
Second act
never lack aura
emerge not a tad shorter
evac orders
rap like cat naps in my back quarters

Poured tales like porter labeled loose
teach once preached they predict deja vu
if ya able fools
can separate the two
nothing ever gon stop you in a day or few

not sure about that
but its a nice
piece of superstitious love in my life
in the crowd looking up at me write
lights dim then suddenly bright
but still muddy like cupping the mic

Take this rhyme upon thy brow
breadcrumb up and down the aisles
and in parting from you now
Thus such much let me avow:

You are not wrong, if you deem
That my days have been a dream
Yet if hope has flown away
in a night, or in a day

In a vision, or in none
Once I drift, what has become
Of those stages stocked with drums
Remain chopped
or dropped n done

And when each grain is ground clean
into a finer piece of wean
All that we might see or seem
is but a dream within a dream

On a route obscure and lonely
Haunted by ill angels only
Into a wild clime sublime
out of space - out of time

My man had it right -
any damn random night
shoreless seas
coarse degrees by candlelight
In the amber glow
what I cannot know
face phantom foe
base: standard fright

Each lane slips
beach-stained ships
burned what we sail:
keep brains lit
What a bright price for the icing
sightsee your life past the hoods that are dicey

if the money is due
for the sample
then the Almighty handles it too
and it might be best if nobody knows
for the deep beat thieves and the poets of prose
