This is an ode to the modern man
Its the ode to the modern man
This is the ode to the modern man
Word up this is the modern man
This is that ode to the modern man
This goes out to that modern man
This is the ode to the modern man
Its to the modern man lighting blend

Word to the-e
Im a tad bit to easy on self
And maybe I should keep a closer tab on my health
I suppose that its simpler said than completed
Allow me to attack but in fact again retreated
Completed, this word search crumpled it up and ate it
My hunger for my blue collar heaven keeps me sedated
Escaped it last night in a dream
And now I sleep with a flashlight and it seems
To keep the nightmare demons and semen laced portions parallel
And apart like Stevens Avenue and Portland
A much traveled one way
Or a slow residential
If these camels dont stunt me
Ima grow with my pencil
Once I climb these skulls of this MC graveyard
Ill see the sun again
Ill jump and run again
So come on over visit cause I got a lot to say
And tell Stress I aint mad cause I got my way
But my man Spawn is here now so Im gone make it brief
Finish up my coffee gather up my shit and leave
I got a army of peers we fight singlehanded
And I wont damage your brain till I understand it

You have only one chance to advance to the next stage Im at
Do you really think that you whup ass?
Do I have to ask you?
Did you see what happened to the last dude?
Tried to compare styles word he got his ass chewed
Now with this in mind
Do you still want to bring your shit and find
Out the hard way
Spawns not the one to play
Trade blades with ya might as well slit your own wrists with a razor
Its best cause Im crazier
Blazin ya for my own amusement
In tune with your whole body when I slipt ya whole fixta
This is what happens when your on my shit lista
Brains to give a blista
So next time ya call me sir or mister
Its the words twist a tongue
Used to make the verbs hit ya
Now do you get the fuckin picture?
Well if ya got a same? Ya better call em
Cause my behavior blows kids away like a tall wind
I take yall in between my jaws for consumption
MCs and coffee at my luncheon
One or two lumps and some cream
Call the team for the gathering
Bring mics and turntables lets do our thing

(Ha,) cause its an ode to the modern man
This is that ode to the modern man
(Yeah,) this goes out to that modern man
From Minneapolis St. Paul to that modern man
Its like a dedication to the modern man
This one here this is for that modern man
From Atmosphere going out to that modern man
Its to that modern man, lighting blend

Now for the umpteenth time we kick rhymes about something
Cant front Im frustrated with heads that dont listen
My positions offbalance
Its a constant challenge
Between the talents and the underlying mission
I could fill your heads some more with
Metaphors, some cute catch phrases
Filtered through accessible themes
But if I dont stay sincere to love and hate
How can I differentiate between chasin cream and chasin dreams
Oh yeah, fuck an Mc in my city
That wants to diss me
If I was to bounce to Atlanta with Shocker yall would miss me
So kiss me smack dab on the asshole while you battle
Im with your wife sharin a Newcastle
Big up to Gene Pool

Cause hes the modern man
(Word up)
That kid Abuse that kids a modern man
To Self One yo that kids a modern man
Full Circle you know them kids modern men
The Native Ones word up to that modern man
Beyond, Extreme this goes to the modern man
Dynospectrum out to that modern man
From Atmosphere goin out that that modern man
Word up, this is the ode to the modern man
It goes like one time for the modern man
This goes out here now to that modern man
Its to that modern man, its to that modern man
Kid yo, this is the ode to the modern man
It goes word up yeah to that modern man
Its for that modern man, its for that modern man, its for that modern man
Lightning blend
