I was a copycat clocking that killer rhyme
Body bags copy that drop a Philistine
Sorry man but I gotta give a bit of time
To the sinners life before its finished beginning with mine!
I watched the bloodshed violence hate and crime
I was desensitised probably by the age of 9
Take your time and then by the age of 10
Im making rhymes breaking spines with a laser pen,
Maybe then crazy men will respects the skill
check the kills,
Put some pepper on whats left to grill
Hammer to the skull brain on the pavement
Grammer to the skull mammals trained in the basement
Death is real my records deal with an agent
Flesh is filled better still I'll wreck a stage an
Step away let the flames engulf it
Everyday pulp fiction listen to it get your skull split!

(Check it) Every second that is spent
Is one step closer to the very end,
You know my weapon is the pen -
Revolving with rhymes  you'll find possession with intent
feel the pressure in your head -
Repent and pray today we'd better represent,

I had a wicked side plus I was a bit blind
Till the spirit hit me and convicted me big time
I was living in spitting distance of a sick mind
Convinced it was winning while swimming against the riptide of this life,
I think its time sin died
Inside and outside rinsed clean drip dried,
Which is impossible if I'm not inclined to the gospel of peace which gets increased when I'm in Christ!
When thoughts manifested mans wretched
Infected and damned without a gram of antiseptic
Unless we can find a man elected to deal with the torture inside like a divine paramedic!
Get the power ready apple macs melt
Beating up tracks like a mad man with a blackbelt,
Leaving em stacked up on a packed shelf
For people to eat later eating beef flavour can help!


Rich countries
Big companies
The number 6
You sitting comfortably?
Kids are hungry
Sick bunnies
Stitched tummies
Terror central
Its funny!
Money is minted printed in the devils temple!
Thick dummies think for me
Rebels get bloody
Everybody got heavy mentals!
Never content with inheritance
Modifying body parts dying flying muscle and skeletons
Invent monsters using elements
Gods crying dont rely on artificial intelligence!
A littlr evidence
Enhancing the eye grants man supervision
I roll with a remnant used to truth and wisdom who
Do what we have to do to so choose a mission! Listen
