"You stressing time and follow the Roman calendar/these people into cloning like Gattaca"
"Writing rhymes in my captain's log, Black Star date/MCs fake like Egyptian gods in Stargate"
"We sell crack to our own out the back of our homes/smell the musk in the dusk, and the crack of the dawn/we go through episodes too, like Attack of the Clones"
"Your brain is like a cage, you're a slave and that's why they loving you/this is The Book of Eli that start with a K-W"
