    Fucking wisdom tooth hurt
    Awww maaaan [laughs]
    [Female Voice] "Time flies when you're having fun"

    [Verse 1]
    I can't even let it breath
    I ain't got a second to spare
    But I'm definitely hair, like fur
    Do you concur?
    I'm only the seed of Herbert the Third
    And the creature conceived in Korea
    Word
    More of a reason to be a overseer
    Four years older than Helina, man we're getting old
    In four years your be a senior, at least I hope
    And hope is all a nigga got
    You put your all in something, then that's all you've got
    So why would that lollygag
    Popping four fives, pop a tag
    There's more to life
    I know my wrongs, I know my rights
    And while you jog, I travel at the speed of light
    I see the light, shades on
    You got an Audemars with diamonds in the face, huh

    [Hook]
    Cause time is of the essence
    You ain't got time for no comments or no suggestions
    But just begging my pardon, enjoying my party
    Cause Ima run the world til my clock stop homey
    Yeah Ima run the world til my clock stop homey
    Cause time is of the essence
    Praying destiny is manifested

    [Verse 2: Ab-Soul]
    Question, how many milliseconds in a year?
    31,558,468,000 and yeah, I googled it
    But which one of you would have counted?
    I thought it was astounding
    My biggest fear is blinking and missing a whole year and thinking I was tripping
    Now that's a disappearing act for your ass
    Wesley and Sanaa didn't have it that bad
    My mind travel so fast that I can see the future today
    Trying to escape like a fugitive in 2088, play it safe
    Preparate, you still trying to segregate
    You better be trying to get your ticket on them arks they about to make
    Know or be amazed, you caught in a maze
    You need your hair done, you need the brand new Js
    You need your nails done and you need 28s
    So you can skate on them hoes, fuck if they say no, there's plenty more

    [Hook]
    Cause time is of the essence
    You ain't got time for no comments or no suggestions
    But just begging my pardon, enjoying my party
    Cause Ima run the world til my clock stop homey
    Yeah Ima run the world til my clock stop homey
    Cause time is of the essence
    Praying destiny is manifested

    [Female Voice] "Time Flies when your having fun"

    Time [x3]

    [Verse 3: Punch]
    Chronomentrophobia, the fear of time
    I'm Francis Ford Coppola
    The writer of Apocalypse Now is upon us
    I guess time is the opponent
    With Armageddon approaching, I'm striving to be the dopest
    Instead of getting prepared, I'm focused on hypnosis
    With the flow, yeah I know how close it is
    I'd rather match with Soul about who the coldest is
    And carry on like I don't notice this
    Sprinkle jewels here and there while committing the grossest sins
    Infinite living just isn't consistent with our comprehension
    Everything we know has an ending
    Analyze time, it means limits, I never knew them
    I'm throwing shots back, the world spinning
    4026 before our common era man was made
    In 2012 we live in terror
    Cause time is of the essence
    We ain't got time for no comments or no suggestions
    But just begging my pardon, enjoying my party
    Cause Ima keep spinning until the world stop homey
    Yeah, said Ima keep spinning until the world stop homey
    Cause time is of the essence
    I hope my intellect is manifested

    There's so much more I want to say but there's just not enough time

    Time [x4]
