Cannibal Ox
[Vast Aire]
Metallic wing pigeon
Cannibal Ox

[Verse 1: Vast Aire]
Birds of the same feather flock together
Congested on a majestic street corner
That's a short time goal for most of 'em
Cuz most of 'em
Would rather expand their wings and hover over greater things
That's what we call inspired flight
By the pigeons that gotta eat pizza crust every night
And "Let there be light" was understood
When a mic-stand descended from up-and-above into the hood
And if my face is worth a thousand words when it's scarred
I would only hope that two of those are cocoa and b***er
To heal the wounds
Of the tissue scarred to mark the death of my womb
But I've graduated, got my wings
And you've got to let go of my constructed Lego egg-o-waffle halo
Eh yo, I'm a black man, with an African
Drum in my chest that beats on the opposite of the right
Let me know I got a breath left
In this frigid fragile capsule
That allows you to fly south before the winter winds trap you
I wrap my "hell I made it" wetsuit st**ch
So I can swim in elevators crazy wet through p*ss
I'm just a pigeon with one mile left
That doggy-paddles through this bullsh*t ocean of death
And these rags-to-riches words will break bones
Like the a**a**ination of two birds with one stone
That's why I don't a**ociate with bird brains with their beaks in the air
Pelicans with wide jaws yap names
For fish heads you'll get tossed in the flames
Where some archaeologists will find your skeletal frame
One, two, three, fo-

[Verse 2: Vordul Mega]
Eskimo medal doctrine locked in oxygen shell
Words shot plated metal lung which spun kids' carousel
Mega alarm technoloid these boys fight four arms
Swinging two toes very well
Terror toys jubilated mega noise when iron works
Bullet shot animated mad windows with fireworks
Shinin' summer-time hydrants
Splash pa**ing cars, now run ghetto tyrants
These faces carry scars (mega large)
Pigeons turn penguins, talk fables cellular
Detached Christ's Word
But freeze-frame gold chain swing Son of God
Iceberg gem shines on the neck, ghetto flight bird
Getting fly like word
Let it settle
I remember cats snatched off the pedal (stealing bike days)
Doo-rags worn tight (Piranha bite waves)
Smoke cheeba through the lung, Arabian camel
Fast like a cheetah now I'm knocked off my African sandal
God damn you! Ethiopian skin mechanical
Trapped in ghetto's mega yard where mega-hard
Arms swinging metal palms iron skin leopard
Holding evil metal eagle attach the desert
Paranoid fingertips st**ched with three-fifty plus seven metal sh*t
Tucked behind the belt ghetto style like delicate street etiquette
Never lactose, metal cow got milk in her guts settling
Cats gotta eat, swallow beef horribly
Melanin, mahogany, black boys feed face arachnoid
Eight arms working short circuit manufactured, crack melted
Slinging shot guns through the mouth of cracked helmets, black felt it
Cats who pop flows shot heavy through the nostril
Brain sizzle, grab the pistol and get hostile
He caught you alone fuse blown
Unemployed screaming "That's why I robbed you!"
Tired of the Medicaid, debted by the car
No containers filled with lemonade, "You better get a job!"
Mother talked, just another hawk
Humiliated bodega food stamp transaction
Left me in corners, buckled me accompanied by evil hands clapping
Rocking my "hell I made it" wetsuit st**ch
So I can swim in elevators crazy wet through p*ss
I rock my simulated air tank bit
So I can leave pressures of oxygen where my mic's lit
I'm just a pigeon
