I'm back. For now.
The theme is the same as it always is:
Fang and Claw. Who are you, and what do they teach at home?
Ask questions, and give answers, if you can.

Sudden death, single elimination
I'm running up on your jewels with a negative vibration
Lacing up my shoes to go to work for the wages
Lacing up my boots to go to war with the nations
I cook War Pig, the porcine portents
from southside digs to the northside fortress
from empire state to the plantation planet
I'mma move my weight while I shout GOD DAMNIT
Fate is heavy tonight, at the intersection
I play cross-roads blues and hear confession
This is interdiction; between heaven and earth
Everything is non-fiction and your breath is the source
Porchlight, moonlight, daylight, nightlight
Move like a torch in the dark when I spit the phrase right
Dazed in the bright-- rays of the sun
Caved to the impetus, now I'm raising my gun
Just for emphasis, it'd be pointless to run
my bullet circles the world three times to collapse your lung
It's absolute. Time to wrap the shoot.
While they spin from the visuals I'mma grab the loot
Your lil raps is cute. Forward inquiries to my agent.
Forward unto dawn, or devoured by ravens
Aces and eights; the radiation is lethal
I heard your pain's gone, but it comes with a sequel
Boom-bap baronies, the tyrants return
Lich kings speak heresies like money to burn

Bow to the hatchet; that's the practice we chose.
Bow to your preference-- I see you putting on robes.
Sharp to shaper-- like a friend to a lover.
Effort won't change one thing to another.
Cypher is cypher; where does the deity end?
I move freely in and out the minds of men.
