Classified waste is on the rise I like the size of the biker’s eyes In between demise of Petulance meets pavement Divide street sign and lifeline By the time spent A better home than garden In the puddle of subhuman Boomin’ in the backseat of Top secret Documentin’ Of the movement Can I Can I see The weapon of light Fight dap in the lap of underground sound Of the decode Drop the overload Drop the overload Get lost in the found Chorus: Pick up the light at night, uh Strike up the match and go Cry like you know the time, uh Fly like rewind and go The same flame blew away last second of the frame Picture this in the backdrop Blow the scene away-ay-ay Speak free power broker See you catchin’ vapors smoker Recognize the late show ain’t no Nick at Nite It’s something else Walk by walk by closely Stand by hand me my opening Channel loader blow away Now hand me the lighter Violence is a lonely soldier Now List the hits over course of disheveled Bent and broken rules unraveled Meet their demise over lost time travel Chorus: Pick up the light at night, uh Strike up the match and go Cry like you know the time, uh Fly like rewind and go The same flame blew away last second of the frame Picture this in the backdrop Blow the scene away-ay-ay Outro: Strike up the match Hand me the lighter Strike up the match (poom poom) Hand me the lighter Strike up the match (boh) Hand me the lighter Blow the scene away-ay-ay

Intro: You cannot run You cannot hide You cannot sleep You better lie You move the corner to the left and the shadow to the side You better die Check-check-check Check-check-check Check-check-check Check-check-check Check 1 check 2 (Ah-ah) Check 1 check 2 (Ah-ah) Check 1 check 2-ooo-ooo-oooo Chorus A (2x) I’m hot ta def You got my number from a video I say oh no It’s a no-go If it only mentions you I’m hot ta def You got my number from a video Let me just say once Speed it up Or slow your roll Closing in on open We keep our eyes wide shut Who else is in the room? All my people say wut wut Get into a rut like it’s a melody Tragedy is in your pockets And now it’s hit full screen Full scream It’s an overload empire Built on desperate misery And fire in the final scene Fade to black On the counterattack Blast off cuz it’s a wrap Chorus B (2x): Never get your views from independent lens When the world ends Close your eyes begin again It’s real all the time You go blind Or you don’t Check 1 check 2 Ah-ah (check check check) Check 1 check 2 Ah-ah (check check check) Check 1 check 2-ooo-ooo-oooo Chorus A (2x): I’m hot ta def You got my number from a video I say oh no It’s a no-go If it only mentions you I’m hot ta def You got my number from a video Let me just say once Speed it up Or slow your roll When the window’s shuttered And the plot has thickened to your dismay Your vision blurry in a hurry 20/20 got a ride a la carte It’s the story of the day Now hasten up your worry No waaaaaay You know it’s kinda like a rocket Run awaaaaaay It’s a blast-off in your pocket It’s okay Cuz there’s nothing left to see Mystery divides the truth Between a-them and you and me-ee Chorus B (3x): Never get your views from independent lens When the world ends Close your eyes begin again It’s real all the time You go blind Or you don’t
