DEATH OF A PRECEDENT

Regulators in the graveyard; new rules for the new school.
Set a date for séance; voodoo’s what the crew use
Stay awake for the chaos; shoot for the blue suits
Hang loose with the fang-tooth;
gray wolf, what a wasted youth; take-two
Say who (say who?) – Say, who made you?
All-time great, not a two-game rule?
All white race, not one lane lose? All white lace in the Kool-Aid juice?
Hey, Zeus – Hey, Zeus – all praise due to who they pray to?
All heads turned for the melee; brood been away,
came back to the place they roost
(WOOF!) Shit is about to get ugly;
hens are holed up in a house full of money
The field is on fire, the barn is all bloody and
nobody’s heard if the farmer is coming
To tend to his flock; been here since ten of the clock;
stock in that simmering pot
Trynna buy time is not working, sir
are you for certain it’s worth what you spent on that watch?
Watch. Keep one eye open, no blinking;
you sink into sleep and you meetin’ his cousin
Eye of the needle, the reaper is comin;
the brink of extinction, the peoples’ destruction
Keep on disruptin’ the evil republic –
do not hold grudges against your own brothers
Cause you and me will contin-ue to be considered
enemies, one in the same to these fuckers
I swear... right there; a kick and a snare and stick and a spear in the
Spirit of seventy-six in the air; in the era of Ish are we slicker this year?
Shit is not what appears. How is this governor stuck in arrears?
What is this button; this buzz in my ears? The mamas and papas,
I’m no son of theirs
Run for the hills; head for the border with portable drills
Scramble to dam up the waters, I promise that
we will dismantle whatever you build
Real (uh) recognize real; whether the texture is weathered and peeled
Solar exposure, the polarization of particles brought us together to kill.

..Death of a precedent; the rest of my testament
Malevolent rebels are yellin’, oh what an expression of eloquence
Arrest of the president; sever the heads of her delegates
Welcome to hell where the resident celebrants relish in decadence

Lick that zig; keg full of powder got kick-back, kid
Lil’ dot fixed on a slicked-back wig; lick that Sig – lick that Sig!
Whittle that switch for to stick that pig;
hogs in the back of a big, black rig
Spit’s in the pit, get it lit quick – took a lil’
sip of the swig then I hit that zig.
(Exhale) clouded, my vision – smoke in my eyes, slight astigmatism
Write a prescription to right the deficiency;
I can see clearly the cycle is vicious
Righteous administer rites of the wicked,
afflicted befallen of all type of sickness
I offer my alms; slits in my palms – the
sign of stigmata that’s my crucifixion
It’s my jurisdiction --- I’ve been commissioned;
you’re under my supervision
It’s time that I tighten the reigns; crash of the
titans in waves – the tides have changed
Triton’s back; Scion of Poseidon cites the title track
A life of modern miracles, this here will be my final act

..Death of a precedent; the rest of my testament
Malevolent rebels are yellin’, oh what an expression of eloquence
Arrest of the president; sever the heads of her delegates
Welcome to hell where the resident celebrants relish in decadence
Death of a precedent; a test of intelligence
The best of the messengers said it with debilitating impediments
Settle your reticence; and ready your regiment
Steady your weapon and let it eliminate all the unpleasantness
Death of a precedent (repeat/echo)
