    Style messiah, Hot like a volcano with fire

    [Verse I]
    The sound of silence vers' the sound of War
    Echo death shock-renegade
    Crooked cynic tyrant
    Your ignorant bias is my Goliath
    Starving alliance seeps under the skin
    The seven deadly sins
    That's the seven elements of the malevolent
    The relevance of
    Graphic endeavors
    Drastic measures took for defense
    My secrets unfold codes of conduct, raid
    Blade runner, intimae
    Fading figment in the minds of the malignant
    Your opinion: not significant, bludgeon
    Poetic potential draws dotted lines between hunter and hunted
    Liquefied thoughts seep through the cracks in side-walks
    Lieutenant cynic consist of anonymous all this seems famished
    Vanished in gritty streets til' city seeks, sleep, head, rush
    Scope, infra-red touched
    Temple's the torment
    Pressure point contact
    Crush the dormant with missing links
    Syncopate movement, Our trobbled blockade ends but I'm blemished in the blueprint
    Behold of the hideous
    Some assaulted by the anthems of the lesser
    Concerned, I squinted through tinted pains of pressure
    Transcend, backlash, jet black ink bleeds to breath abstract interpose passages
    Database entries slip through the fingers, you're forgotten
    A faceless figure shall put among an infinite citizens capital coward branded in the backbones of the stranded
    Ese's hunger for upper handed plan strategy: strike force
    Pays quicken upon asphalt light source sun burst beams
    A portrait of pillage
    Multiple put-downs paint burn marks on perception
    Indulge indefinite challenging chapters never before have human eyes looked upon
    The unbearable weight
    Contaminate little thieves
    Heaves, breath, the last gasp
    And I last grasp, but trace through your trickery, pinpointed
    Technique cast on the fresh but it's now thickly anointed, vicious cycle
    Ya'll spinnin if you tread before you think
    The center of my web is pen and ink
    It's the merciless, masquerade merging separate flows of music's martyrs
    Threw my flag into the ground and claimed your land for starving artists
    The masquerade merging separate flows of music's martyrs
    Threw my flag into the ground and claimed your land for starving artists


    Style messiah, Hot like a volcano with fire [repeated x14]

    [Mike Batt - "Zero Zero" Mother 210 Sample]

    [Verse II]
    All I see is little plastic soldiers with little plastic holsters
    Spit on plastic cultures belittled by sarcastic vulture swarms
    Warning I'd skip your stepping stones down by the sea shore
    It's that scarlet welcome carpet that I fiend for
    My dreams spore schemes each more malicious than the pre-ceding
    Red skies bleeding acid this is best inspired by your doubt
    All through flood fire and drowning tied rapidy into humid winds
    [?] spectrum's drippin' [?] I prayed for days lacking discoloring
    Bigots may seem to scare me I dissect void [?] with metal flanks

    (far as I got. what a brain strain!)
