lyrics

LH: Don't mention competition play the cards that you're given
KA: I only get one spine, I only get one mind
LH: You're an organism and your heart is the rhythm
KA: So better take my time to get it refined

LH: Three decades mass
The same task I've endeavored
Work the grain with pleasure,
Pain and fire of an aggressor
I've been trusted with a treasure
In the ruff's how they phrase it
Chipped away and polished
My chest plate I fillet it
And display the golden heart of weary men
Hike the narrow path
To recline in days halcyon
This era is just rough patch
See those on wide highway
Envy habitat and curse my jagged way
Lament on my handicaps
Just spit on my cards
The only hand I can never fold
The whackest story every told
Would be to never get in rhythm
To never ever get one with my mind
Never chisel, never grind
Never become refined
My excrutiating competition only inside
It's the bloodsport of agony
The crushing of pride
From the crimson pool I rise
The whole of whole of man
At intention here in front of you in immaculate command.

LH: Don't mention competition play the cards that you're given
KA: I only get one spine, I only get one mind
LH: You're an organism and your heart is the rhythm
KA: Better take my time to get it refined

KA: Just a few years back I could've lost my mind/
The only one I ever had, travel back in time/
Blinded by the darkness, but now I see the light/
Vision not the sharpest, I see in hindsight/
A faint white blur at the end of the tunnel/
I write rhymes pure that don't need a rebuttal/
Fumble over measures cuz life's too much to juggle/
Crumble under pressure like the rubble-
concrete jungles/
Everyday a test, another gamble, wanna fold em/
Play ya cards right and u might just find ya totem/
Knowing self is game, gotta sift thru the pain/
The suffering and rain made me who I am today/
On firm land I stand with hope for what I've planned/
Worship all the dollars as they placed upon an altar/
Feel the weight of gravity, crushin all that falter/
Now I understand what it takes to be the man/

LH: Don't mention competition play the cards that you're given
KA: I only get one spine, I only get one mind
LH: You're an organism and your heart is the rhythm
KA: Better take my time to get it refined

LH: The battle scars on me shine in sun's fine light
I wouldn't erase em if I could, the blessed earth where I stood
Is the stage of the finest play, drama with pain
Don't wanna give it away, but my friends it doesn't end in tragedy

KA: Blast thru the gauntlet unphased to cast another shadow on the past
The quiet way has gained another follower...
Still soulful, solemn, n solid, wallow in the mire...
Phoenix from the fire goin haywire/

LH: I'm in command of this fortress, the mayor of this town/
A man who's every action is determined and bound/
By the laws of self-discipline, the crushing of my enemies/
The one who can't defeat the lone villain is me/

KA: Emerge victorious from the ashes with the rations we took/
Concerned with the missions and tha cash that we trust/
We two refined Gs with their minds times three/
Know the sacred five, our design is destiny/

LH: Don't mention competition play the cards that you're given
KA: I only get one spine, I only get one mind
LH: You're an organism and your heart is the rhythm
KA: Better take my time to get it refined

about

King ART Austin, Texas

"King ART is true to the underground sound, but his message has mass appeal. His illustrative lyrical content, often hinting at myth and magick, makes you feel nostalgic and futuristic at once. His style comes across raw, yet refined, as this imaginative emcee speaks on life, death and beyond."
