Can you get it?/can you last?/can you stand tall?/can you rise?/can you fly?/like a tribe called?/or is it just the mysterious ways/wash over you like waves/end up in your face like

someone stand up/bring the light to me
someone stand up/bring the soul

it’s magic, like a rabbit out of a hat/a savage, rabid beast who’s half as bad/on average Fif is close to the damage/yet the thoughts of lavish make him just half as sad/I bought a lab/named him meth/broke the bad/showed my dad the results and scared him half to death/when half is left I treble cleft/counter the bass without haste and face like a tribe on a quest/when cries are left I seem to trial on/keep the file strong/til I build the machine like Cybertron/so when I speak you know my lies belong/when I preach you know my sermon’s wrong/when I teach you know the lesson’s long/when I reach you know to come along/a song/like it’s fifth from the third/I am to masses what the feather’s to bird/yoga flame to corrupt and absurd/start the game a street fighter/an alpha too so fuck what you heard/or fuck the writer too I’m stuck on a verb/just a character unprepared to/fight the battles/walk into the pasture just to gather all the cattle/not a leader but thinker of the greater/you can challenge me and you will see that I’m the greatest mass debater/narrator of my people/and these evils/and the struggle/
I'm feeling oh so spiritual/oh so lyrical/I punish the throne so my words reach imperial/reach for ethereal/in serial/with raw material/I ponder these thoughts while I'm eating some cereal/so when the day break/I'm practicing zen/with no ill in my heart/I didn't have to pretend/then again since I met the object of my affection i objectively affected connected poison within/i fantasize/philosophize/until I lie/down with my troubles about results I've prophesied/im not a king/not a ruler/im just from the third making sense/im the victim and the shooter/I'm the owner and the looter/im repugnant/the quiet mind to dig into your senses/make you question the republic/I'm your conscious/I'm your reason/I'm the cricket/trust/just bounce for a second while you kick it/

Just bounce for a second while you get it/just bounce for a second while you know/just bounce for your life and the freedom while you feel it/just bounce for the spirit and the soul
