On The Horizon

I get the sense
Of your ignorance
It's like a headache,
So intense

Now let's cut to the chase
No cops, no lawyers
No rapists, no murderers
Can separate humanity
From insanity
The tranquility
Of Our history
War
Poverty
Crime and the
Freedom of the Embassy

Living everyday
With the guilt-trip delay
Like a Pawn,
I play to everyone's command
I'm Like a Knight,
I move with a purpose
Like a Bishop,
I cut people off sideways
I'm like a King,
'Cause I know where I stand
The question is: Do you?
My heart races to the beat
Trying, dying to keep pace
I can take the heat,
That's no problem
The question becomes: Can you?

'Cause I'm on the horizon
Living, breathing
A new paradigm
Of this thing called life
