[Verse] Life as a star, drift from afar, we glistenin' Reflections of the world, I'm steady rockin' and listenin'/ So what's the mission? Standing in the third eyes' lobby Wonderin', when did freeing minds only become a hobby?/ Never weak. Breaking Adamantium with my own teeth. Biting my style? Breath of Fire dragon baring the fangs/ I'm baring the flames of Iron Fist, preparing to slay, Charlot harlots like Ogier the Dane/ Launch a lance a lot, Castle court of Camelot, Round table Knight, I'm cited as Ocelot - I mean, Sir Lancelot/ Ricochet shots like Ocelot, foes drop when reciting my prose, Inviting souls to the Slaughterhouse - how Crooked is your I (Eye): third/ A blind man feeling the texture of the world through the rhythm located within the air/ Told'em in braille, stay dots: one, two, four, five Music to a driveby. Instincts of Zatoichi/ Getting busy in the streets, sort of meek But I seek that inner glow, I'm searching for that inner truth/ Got more wisdom than the tooth, pursuit of happiness. Twelve jewels (Huh) I'm coppin' that Five Percenter/ Digable like the Planets, but I'm galaxy dancing Bouncing off the baseline, reckin' the mind, tryin' to incline, move with the stars/ Master of the Universe, reverse the reverb, spitting Kama Sutra's sensual to open up your Chakras/ Find me, rockin' with Lee, at the Eight Gates Nimble on my Nimbus, Son Goku, I got you/ Reading between my lines, you say you saw me coming? They must of told you braille.
[Introduction] Sharp Wind, Swift Dagger, God's Armor Amen [Verse 1] Heat seeking, catching missiles with the palm of my hands Be that kid, Vagabond, on the otherside of Shaolin Fist, middle finger tatted with Wu Tang Clan be the Fox Hound sound bound bouncing off that baseline Line rhymes in hieroglyphics, rap these raps wrapped in war drums Give me that war paint [Huh] Rocking the rhythm up top of the Opalesce, shinin' Super Sonic juking, from the precision of the lyrics They glisten like holographics [Huh] Hollow Bastion, blasting fire, Flame char Charizard, scar adversaries from afar, so far away from home that it smell like Nebula So I said to the sun, Tunnel vision, my vision encapsulating your spirit The spirit Urameshi getting messy Over them break beats, I'm breaking an arm Breaking them legs for the settlement Black excellence, Godbody to the syntax Go! [Chorus] You on point Vagabond? All the time Domo You on point Vagabond? Word is bond Domo. You on point Vagabond? To the sky, Domo. So on point, turn table needles are jealous You on point Vagabond? All the time Domo You on point Vagabond? Word is bond Domo. You on point Vagabond? To the sky, Domo. Then grab the mic and shed some of that insight [Verse 2] [Huh] Did Heaven sign him or something? The Devil grooving in the moonlight, trying to tease him like Gluttons Nothing will satisfy the hunger emanating from the abyss Come to exist, in the dissonance humbled in the distance I want to breach the skyline, one more time Bask in the spotlight, of the sunshine [Huh] Standing up dry in the pouring rain Graffe slain names, through the hieroglyphics in the night-time Quoting the cosmic bonds, between the Earth and the Stars From the Spirit to the Gods, rain fire from the chorus Singing the Book of the Five Rings, co-sign our divine reign [Yo] Meta-metaphors take flight like Meta-Knight Words, sparking that insight Swords, of spoken text, piggy-backed on Icarus we soaring Through the cadence of the universe, when I flip the verse Emcees disperse, with a So(ul) Amaziní blaze So sip wisdom, get lifted, so we can Dream!

Second bloom of Seba Jun(e) Phoenix resurrected, so why would you second guess us now? A League of Gentle, Dudley rose throwing boxers I'm keeping it classy like a glass of Moscato Living my life's destiny, like a distant memory Clever styled poetry, annotated by the quotes of scholars Time ain't waiting for your two cents, twin sense Duo text held like twin swords, sparking that insight Like Miyamoto Musashi, they got me Spitting Sun Tzu tactics to make your back flip Heads or tails? Harvey Dent I'm cutting these threads like the Sisters of Fate 'Cause I'm [Reverse Chorus]
