Lyrics[edit]

Of course you know what a fuse is
It’s a long piece of cord
Impregnated with gun powder
When you strike a match and light it/it burns
Fitfully/spiraling
At which there is a little surprise

From the planet of Krypton/insuring suit emcees you’ll be ripped on (ripped on)
You fell off and it’s my lyric sheet you slipped on
Get gone/spit on mic’s made in Hong Kong
Rock on/sing songs we're mightier than King Kong
Or Donkey Kong/you think you want me or want this?
You want some/hold your reputation for Ransom
With these here/handsomely-crafted tactics
To break a snake emcee like a cheap prophylactic
Galactic, spaced-out gab that grabs attention
Crack heads nodded like a past can’t even mention
Ride on patch traps gas tracks and sections
Kid says this he’ll need witness protection

Trying to see what I
Can't be seeing
I'll be here

Trying to see what I
Can't be seeing
I'll be here

Yo dig this
Yo/it’s the junkyard crooked letter-C-I-EN-tific
Duck us/the ruckus I’ll bring stings your eardrum
Hear one/la-la-let loose find me fearsome
Opposing troops on my home/front shall be gone
Testing the eight-hundred-eighteenth battalion
Shall I go on/crews run like rebels
Enola Gay rhymes kick the notch up a level/in intensity
Send back attacks that you sent to me
Blow up your spot with grenades that were meant for me
Empty verses on R-33 emcees
Swiss cheese your gear putting shrapnel in the breeze
We're lead emcees with enemy companies
With my hand full of lyrics talking ‘bout you want these
Please, don’t even speak the name of channels and
Go low-gadget mic shit put it down like pens
For my friends and my fam
Better dodge or I’ll ram this mic straight through the back of an emcee’s head
With the strength of He-Man/I'll bet you don’t want that
Close-bodies filled fields in hand-to-hand combat
Battle cats/it’s like the sectional speech
Warfare words flashing at cords
Compete for an edge/lyrical shots get lit
Don’t question my intention when your butt gets kicked

Trying to see what I
Can't be seeing
I'll be here
(Time for metallic syllabatic attacks)

Trying to see what I
Can't be seeing
I'll be here
(You want these emcees with these lyrical back smacks)

Go ahead suit yourself

Why wait/I shouldn't told you so
Why wait/I shouldn't told you so
Why wait/I shouldn't told you so
Why wait/I shouldn't told you so

Why wait/I shouldn't told you so
Why wait/I shouldn't told you so
Why wait/I shouldn't told you so
Why wait/I shouldn't told you so

Trying to see what I
Can't be seeing
I'll be here
(Time for metallic syllabatic attacks)

Trying to see what I
Can't be seeing
I'll be here
(You want these emcees with these lyrical back smacks)
