Armageddon started; I guess it wasn't that hard to missIt didn't trip the alarm on ya hybrid carbon footprint The darts are rigged and i'm a big fan of carbs and the artist Prince Theres a marginal risk that ya cards won't hit It's like tryna borrow a barbecue rib from a starving kid Be thankful if ya stars are lit Or ya might get caught between the Charmin and shit The armor fits to stay outta harms grip But karmas a bitch so when your heartbeat quits Consider all the death you've invested with The shoes, the booze, the phone; that you textin' with Disrespecting gets second amendmented But the species still seem to be trendin' From the friend zone all the way to the kremlin The devil give a fuck about a flag; or an emblem Things ain't been the same since Trayvon, shit Things ain't been the same since Reagan; wait Ain't a single thing change from the days When the gods went crazy and broke the language
