Hook1:On and on and on down the line / you got ‘em strung on a vine but you’re living a lie / I said on and on and on down the line / you got ‘em strung on a vine but you’re living a lie.
Still I’m

Sims: Looking for a sign of a pulse / Sit back until the bridges collapse and watch ‘em play fault / They plot it all out / get the story holding water but forgot about the bottom dropping out / So don’t come running ‘round here when your sky falls / What goes round comes back round / one two three / Every day same waltz

Mictlan: One two / and if that soft shoe fits dance til the stage falls / With your lies in the background / truth in the forefront Two-step to the safe house / sweat when the storm comes / But we don’t do that step no more / God bless the dead and arrested war.

Hook 2: You sowed it so it fits you / And you know how low it get’s you / But you sowed it so it fits you / No matter what you do / it comes back to you.

Mictlan: And you know Bamf is ready / Yeah, that’s a given / The bastard’s in me / City slicker slip through the cracks of your city / I won’t sell my dreams / I keep the livestock fed / Clip the leaves before they turn and burn the field when the crop’s dead Plant feet / chop heads / to the vocal cord / You are not the tale-teller / this is not folklore / The Shape of Rap to Come resembles an open door / We’re wondering what the rest of the country had closed for.

Sims: I say that to say this / You can act innocent / fill your glass to the brim / with your back to the wind / but sooner or later its going to catch up / It all adds up / breaks the scales / you don’t match up / Parasite-like feeding off the others / then fighting for your life to keep what you stole / You hold yourself as the self-keystone, huh? / It’s a one-way road / Everybody pays what they owe.

Hook 2, and then what the hell, Hook 1
