I listen to better rappers than you.
They do what you cannot do.
But no one, not in the bloody sky,
can touch me when I write.
Nope, I don’t have writers block,
I have writers high.

Stick me with a needle.
It’s a bright blue world beautiful.
Tie me down, let me see God
while I still lay down.
The truth will astound you.

Skin me alive
and whisper into my ears.
You never loved me.
You just loved to play with fear.

Oh, incandescent, obstinance.
The rhythm, it sounds marvelous.
Marbles fall to the floor.

Roll on, roll on.
Roll on, roll on.
Roll on, roll on.
