Ka - The eye of a needle

I sketch picture of stress, picturesque
As boys try make noise with hits, start pitchin' less
From hurtin' blocks where workin' spots was big success
Stack digits, how you act when get it's the biggest test
Alert nights, liftin' dirt bikes the kid impressed
Those full of hustle pull a muscle or did a stretch
They mumble lessons in jungles sessions, sippin' blessed
All I heard was, "Don't sleep", I ain't get the rest
It's a penny for the thoughts
After dice, never gave a penny for them walks (never)
It's a penny for the thoughts
Penny for the thoughts (thoughts)

My past bent me, see it half-empty
My theme's still tryin' get to clean from last century
Was true and kids, grew and lived through some tryin' years
My road land me from nose candy to pioneers
The style Ka utter is highbrow gutter
Even though the sound's brown, the crowd's now hover
Can't appreciate winnin' if one never fails
Played on games of chance, I gotta have the tails
It's a penny for the thoughts
In the summertime, I had a semi in my shorts

Penny for the thoughts
Penny for the thoughts
Penny for the thoughts
At ten, visit cousins in the pen'
Even then I had some hawks
Penny for the thoughts
Penny for the thoughts


Penny for the thoughts
Nickels with the grips
Had dimes tell me that they love me
Penny for the thoughts
Nickels with the grips
Had dimes tell me that they love me

(What I bring is worth much)

For our appetites, we burned major
Had to sacrifice all to earn favor
Fly visitors become food, never return flavor
It's a coarse life course, you don't get to learn later
We chose shortsighted goals not sought so far
Chalkin' up my tortures how I taught y'all
Losers die, winners caught a war scar
We only sayin' fuck what they enforce, got a sports car
In the dreams of cuttin' nets to move some nicks
Crossed many with the semi, did my time on the crucifix
Bleedin' all the grievin' made us extra grievous
Would've told Kev I love him if I knew he was next to leave us
Power that be tryin' to deceive us, best believe us
Holdin' court, won't let the control and alt, delete us
To defeat us, the wicked brew poison blend
The skinniest toothpick grew quick from boys to men
While I scored, many felt the sword, not enjoyed the pen
Call when it broil friend, I'm loyal to the voyage end
Rapidly keep my eyes movin' I couldn't fall in REM
Some equality, none in poverty, I'll be joyous then
I'll be joyous then
As long as I'm able-bodied

(And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering) As I'm able-bodied
Put food on that table as long as I'm able-bodied
(And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering)
As I'm able-bodied
(But unto Cain and his offering he had not respect)
(But unto Cain and his offering he had not respect)
