lyrics

Lotus In The Slums
Ain’t no rules for us= Contradiction
Only rule was bust= Provide prescriptions
Even if no audience listen= Glisten glow
Even if ya by ya self in the mirror let ya otha self know
That you the beast of the show
Turn the lights on, lights out Bloody Mary,
Candyman, Suicide bomber= don’t stand near me
I’m in the church goin verse for verse with God’s mamma
Rebirth= Coya, Isis, Yemaya, Mary
All my goons in the trap hear me
Fuck that, all my alley cats is really
Jaguars, pumas, lions, cheetahs, hyenas
No theory= Dennis Leary before the agent
I’m in dead end bar going pagan
Now they want organization?
That’s Nancy Reagan, “Just say no.”
Even the wind blow= Dolphy
I’m in Peru Ilatecha steppin loftly
Ya ya ya lost me –No.
They wanna teach me
How to control the force= Wan Obi
Tell Bird to control the horse
I’m Don Quixote & C.S. Lewis
Bout to lose it doin that great dope movement
Yo, push it up then push it down
I got no muscles= all I got is a vibrant crown
{Chorus}

We goin lotus in the slum sun
We goin lotus in the slum sun
We goin lotus in the
We goin lotus in the slum sun
We goin lotus in the slum sun
We goin lotus in the

I’m beyond a monster
Play games= Contra
Kill me? I’ll haunt ya
Come back as a priestess of Tantra
This beast is beyond Ayahuasca
The goddess that I build with heal shit
No mantra, no surgery-she speak to me often= all urgency
Like, “Tell em what I tell ya but don’t ever ask why”
I never ask. She say, “You know your path=
Save Zelda, Brunehilde - fuck it, Esmerelda
Fuck it, Oshun awaken Pannonica from her new cocoon
Go in Billie Holiday= no spoon, Oshun
these muhfuckas in between the new moons
I do Dune spice mélange= My word is my bond
Raise the maze jank all them eaters from her path
I’m Hiroshima if no bomb had blown that up
Imagine life with no Vietnam war, Sun
Yo, I’m in the after effects of a religion
That killed all of the children of the God’s children
To make us respect (((( THE WAR ON GODS ))))))
They won- but not really cuz we one, now
So every 1 as long I’m goin Sun y’all go Sun- But now…
{Chorus}
