Clickety clack
Clickety clack
Clickety clack
Clickety clack
Clickety clack
Clickety clack
Clickety clack

Clickety clack
Clickety clack
Gather my things and I quickly attack
Sword in my sheath
Knife in my back
Keep enemies closer than where friends are at
Rose in my mouth
The petals are black
One armored suit
The metal's in tact
Come fully strapped with a skull wooly cap
Just picture that
Clickety clack

Now I find my location and unfold the map
My index inspects it and follows the path
My horse is on loan and I borrowed a staff
From some mystical wizard I will give it back
But I'm off to the races my face has got cracks
Worn out and weathered like a red leather mask
Been through the storm, future, present, and past
Light as a feather, swift as a cat
Cold as a rock you know not what you knicked from my sack
Little bastard, you'll get skinned for that
You'll swim with fishes once I finish this task
No strings attached
Clickety clack

Clickety clack
Clickety clack
Gather my things and I quickly attack
Sword in my sheath
Knife in my back
Keep enemies closer than where friends are at

Kick myself in the ass
For not bringing my axe
But I've got the flash paper and one single match
Light won't escape me a fire will catch
You'll beg and you'll plead
You'll scream and you'll scratch
But nothing can save you, you need to relax
I'll keep you alive for a while, feed you scraps
Love you like you deserve love, with some smacks
A kick and a slap
Clickety clack

It's no longer personal, I'm simply detached
From what's hurtful I need to keep my business exact
Separate beings I see our businesses our exact
And I can't bridge the gap
Clickety clack

Built a rickety raft out of twigs and some grass
Made it to shore just before it collapsed
Salute to this mission, take swigs from your flask
Tilt your glass
Pick your poison
I'm poised to be fast on your scent
Picked up just by sniffing your tracks
Kept my ear to the ground heard snickers and laughs
Adding insult to injury for your criminal acts
Now the cost of your freedom is a liberty tax

Clickety clack
Clickety clack
Gather my things and I quickly attack
Sword in my sheath
Knife in my back
Keep enemies closer than where friends are at

You should've known better than to be mingling with rats
Got a lead to your shack from some gypsies in the trash
Cryptic interactions, I asked them to stick to facts
Made a trade and gave them everything I had packed
Now there's a brick through your window, kid, sift through the glass
Notice the note in which the brick was wrapped
Explaining that I know how you're quick to the dash
But it won't be very long before you slip in my trap
Like a moth to the flame with its wings in the wax
It's hard to explain with your limbs in a cast
Your heart will deflate when your wrists both get slashed
And gradually I snap these synapses in half
Magnificent crescendos, the symbols all crash
You'll pay for your deeds but we don't accept cash
We will mix and match
This for that
Tit for tat
Gonna get it get get it back
Gonna getcha getcha getcha back

Clickety clack
Clickety clack
Gather my things and I quickly attack
Sword in my sheath
Knife in my back
Keep enemies closer than where friends are at

Clickety clack
Clickety clack
(repeat and fade out)

    General CommentI don't know if anyone else picked up on this, but the rhyme scheme in this is amazing. Sage rhymes literally every word in this song with some form of "a" as in "clack", "attack", "back", "map", "grass" and so on. To continue that rhyme scheme through out the whole song is simply and utterly amazing

    I stand in awe

    General CommentMore even than that, ehrb. A ton of the rhymes are an "i", two others and then an "a." The whole song clickity clacks through.

    Also in awe.
