Yeah
I know I'm an emotionally disturbed person
People think I'm talkin' to myself
When I'm rehearsing' on the rhyme
A mass productionist, a mass production matador
Pan it more to the left, there you go
Minimize the center wiser when I wind up for the pitch
But I don't pitch a bitch "cause sales get derailed
And towed,
He owed an abundance of cash
Damn, a minute ago he was my man
I tried to trust him but I busted him twice
In my trash can, and I'm askin'
I don't need psychology to see the dichotomy in me

Knew something was fishy, but I'm better than wishy washy
Or topsy turvy, it kinda irked me that I caught him sleeping
'Cause I try to be wide awake
But he slows it down so I can't dilate
And show that I'm bigger than that
But I also have to consider the fact
That opposed to him not being the right peeper
I'm a light sleeper

So what do I mean when I reach maturity and still see that I'm not the mayor of my Mayonnaise, the master of my milieu
At least I have a swing and a few things on my mind,
It's never a good nighty night, just a rise and shine

Why's the rhyme so important
Why do I have to be so potent and blow the microphone without chokin'
I don't
I'm arrogant and outspoken
Mouth no token, I'm just a roustabout
I have a house and clout, but I don't come tight

But it's routine since few fiend for true hiphop
It's a trip when I drop my style
And forget it and forget where I got it from and
How I got 'em sprung
"Cause I'm stuck on myself and I depend on my luck and wealth for health matters
So I don't explode with stress, I'll serve you an elf platter
They'll tell me that my shit is fatter that the first
But I'm a light sleeping' rapper in a hearse

I don't wear sarongs in my songs
I dis the skirts in verses and I used to measure my demeters
With clever pentameters
But I bounced like a pogo and I'm solo with the hobos

A nocturnal colonel in a journal
I put fly kids' eyelids to rest a detour for deep sleep
When I freak beats
I snap like a defective contraceptive and my sleep
Will be light so you'll know that I'm tight…
