Mission Man is out of the basement
Encased in carbonite
Armed to fight
Now that I thawed him out
Without a doubt
And he's not holding back
Just showing facts
About his past
He is me
And we will see
A new side
I've got a new ride
To take me
And make the
Dream come true
We'll skip the drive through
That's my only knowledge of a drive by
I'm back in college loving high fives
As I'm rocking the mic
Not stopping the fight
Just using stronger weapons
Longer steps and
More powerful plays
Blowing up the powder full kegs
Not embracing arrogance
As I'm sharing this
I'm really caring since
I don't want to face the alternative
Surviving life because I'm scared I won't live
And I'll walk around dead every day
So this is the only way
Regardless of my friends who say
Yo he's gay
Because I don't get play
On an everyday basis
But they couldn't face this
Situation I'm facing
And staring it down
So I'm sharing it now
I keep getting hit
By a bunch of bullshit
You'll get
The impression
The stress in
My life carries the weight of the world
By night there's the debate of 3 girls
But I walk away from all of them
Because the message that they send
Is one of rude and pretty
And full of stupidity
They don't want me because I'm available
I have to be sold to be sellable
So I keep on looking for the right one
And even though the night's young
The stars are out of alignment
My scars are out of refinement
I've been through the struggle
And understand real trouble
My other hand feels stubble
As the first scratches my head
This verse is scratched in by pen
And many words are crossed out
Because I can't write fast enough to get my thoughts out
I smell someone smoking pot now
And though it should be legalized
I don't think it's really wise
To pile up justifications
For the miles of this justiceless nation
Why waste prison space
When wisdom makes
The ignorant pay
For their arrogant ways
I'm stubborn as hell
I've got rug burns and yell
As I slide across the closet floor
To open up the darkest door
I've ever seen
I've never been
In a situation so beyond my control
The result of that is something I've already told
So I'm passing on the knowledge I stole
From the devil when he tried to break my spirits
So take the lyrics
That make me fearless
Because I'm a God loving man
But I won't ask for your right hand
And ask you to swear
Because I don't care
If you're a Buddhist
Or an atheist
Losing God gave me this
Perspective
Of live and let live
I feel right, but I may be wrong
And that knowledge makes me strong
What's right for you may be wrong for me
But I long to see
Time stop
Long enough to let these rhymes drop
So you can tell me that I've got
The wrong idea
And we will see a
Unity of our lives
No mutiny with power strides
Unless we're rebelling against separation
And combining in preparation
For a world where we're all one
So we can show this world that we've all won
I've been silent for too long
I've dreamed violence that's too strong
And now it's time to wake up
And see through the make up
To the inner beauty that I'm looking for
And there may be a book in store
But I doubt it
And I'm proud this
Pen still writes
So I can kill fights
Before they get started
Wisdom has been imparted
And I need to express
To alleviate my stress
