A warrior walks the path Without his past The wind blows his memories In the form of sand in his eyes The blind imagery Rather not be reminded if he cant find the symmetry While Living in between Having a mission With something missing The visions A woman and children Right on this earth just Don't know what he fighting for Surviving without a purpose Haunted by a sense of urgency Looking for why it's urgent The legend falling on def ears The silent city is Home to a Heroes return But he's oblivious The gradual effects of decay The day's Insidious The gift fostered the orphans To start the lineage Hieroglyphic geniuses Speaking through only images Everything since the incident Life without dissonance But the harmony lives If you willing to go the distances The mind is a weapon The gift is the only privileged You would be cheating the planet Not using it for advantage The blade of the branch Rose from the wreckage It was Mother Nature's gift of a weapon To fight oppression He do the dance with his fate in his hands Looking for the blade in the branch The Sword of Nature You ever dance with your fate in your hands Looking for the blade in the branch The Sword of Nature He do the dance with his fate in his hands Looking for the blade in the branch The Sword of Nature You ever dance with your fate in your hands Looking for the blade in the branch The Sword of Nature

If you doubted me Never tell me you proud of me Cause' I just quit my job Before I turn 30 Whatever hurts me Is Manifesting itself Into another verse of me spilling My well being and you can't see it You still asking for a feature While I'm painting the Mona Lisa Reality in the flesh They relate to you being trapped in the mesh But is walking away from a check Walking over the edge? Wear your feelings when you get dressed But smile for the internet They'll never feel the finesse Or detect the stress You living with I hate writing in my phone The government probably listening And 45 will listen too Grabbing women by the 'cooch' And Confederate flag wavers burning they tennis shoes I put myself on a path and still dont know which way to move Everything to gain But everything to lose The cost So I march to the beat of my own drum Quick Somebody help me find my drumsticks I'm feeling lost September Leaves changing like my life September Losing sleep you a thief in the night September I'm trying to find my way in the dark But September had me feeling so lost And I ain't slept in so long When it rains It pours during the brainstorm The rise of the writer Spilling coffee on the keyboard But Feel the demise of the mind That I'm losing sleep for Frank Dukes You lack the proper training for the Bloodsport Roads to the unknown Choose a lane Or get slayed In the Kumite Now what you know? I made the sacrifices But I don't see where the prize is My eyes See through the lies But get lost in the time Slowly becoming the blind leading the blind But still peaking through the blinds With the rifle for civil rights While you defending celebrities More than your families May I shine through whatevers damaged me The city's gentrified And they staring at me like I should leave Kids still running catching bullets without a pair of cleats Blinded by anxiety I don't see enough air to breath Suffocate in silence We ain't never been to therapy September Leaves changing like my life September Losing sleep you a thief in the night September I'm trying to find my way in the dark But September had me feeling so lost And I ain't slept in so long

Carry bushido across the seas I made a promise to me And the girl I couldn't defeat The Pirate Hunter My sense of direction is non existent But I'm never lost in battle Only those who've suffered long can see the light in the shadows Santoryo is my vision On a mission to be the greatest swordsman in all existence But lost when I had my chance My sword My repentance Protecting my captain's dream Is better than my ambition First mate of my band of misfits My loyalty shines Through the Wado Ichimonji Kuina your dream is mine As I push through the Grand Line To ensure I'm undefeated I'll be trained by the greatest in history Then I'll beat him That's my mindset As long my captain's King of the Pirates I would die for his destiny That's my weaponry Raise my bounty They'll hunt me until I'm buried Two sword Nitoryu Kitetsu and Yubashiri These the tales of a Samurai My poetry deep as my sword You hear the battlecry (They wonder why) These the tales of a Samurai My poetry deep as my sword You hear the battlecry (Now one time) These the tales of a Samurai My poetry deep as my sword You hear the battlecry (They wonder why) These the tales of a Samurai My poetry deep as my sword You hear the battlecry (Now one time) The Yamashiro shinobi But that's the old me My clan turned their backs on me Corrupted for gold I cut the head off of the snake I'm walking a lonely road But that was another time And now my story unfolds The story of the Vagabond My blade got me caught in a war Don't know what side I'm on My sword is an angel to the 8 devils of Kimon Watch the natural Slice through the super natural Tricked into this battle for the Shogunate The toxins in my body against a Ghost from my past Who my opponent is This road paved with lust But I avoided it Only Kagero My traveling beauty Who's love is poisonous With a skill set as deadly As the look in her eyes Only the poison on her dying lips Will keep me alive I'll face the devil himself with you on my mind My Kunoichi Only through love I survive Now one Time These the tales of a Samurai My poetry deep as my sword You hear the battlecry (They wonder why) These the tales of a Samurai My poetry deep as my sword You hear the battlecry (Now one time) These the tales of a Samurai My poetry deep as my sword You hear the battlecry (They wonder why) These the tales of a Samurai My poetry deep as my sword You hear the battlecry (Now one time) The unconventional Legend of the 7 sword style Plus kick the lyrical They put the beast in me as a child Was never regular The outcast Hidden in clouds Village protector Nevertheless The Sword play Jinchuriki Used rap to take the focus off how they treated me I've wielded two legendary blades of the Mist The Executioner And Samehada Feed off your Chakra To capture the monster You'll need more than The Taka

Any Leviathan Get slayed to the sound that I'm designing in Your silence Can be as vibrant as violence is Aligning with all timing The Iron Fist By design he just Not blinded See's the world through a calendar Like the Mayans did The legend born in the year of the Dragon But in the Lions Den Introverted Vibrant And Shining despite the times we in My only validation of college is Being less than a writer is not an option Regardless where my mind is Still lead the paradigm shift Then Flip the synopsis A world traveler Far from passport amateur Was clocking in Late off the plane Caught by my manager Duffel bags under my eyes No trip But damage done Behold the swordsmanship Of the valedictorian Appreciate the mind Dropping bombs at the colloquium My silhouette rise from the smoke in front of the podium Dropping knowledge But only to vanish before they notice him The message leans On every set of ears in the mezzanine But any level of patience Getting swallowed by the feeling of being...stationed In the matrix What you waiting for Time is of the essence And blessings wont even wait for you A troubled venue to vent to Quite jumbled see I reflect you Neglect the truth, the proof so brand new You subdue and I'm aloof You got the juice I'd like to spruce, induce perceptions I wont neglect it, no less Can we the best in question All reverence, all excellence I settle in They medalin, pedaling My kettle, slight mellow... At em like helloooo... Stellar-type fellow.. No jello, this shake & it tremble My own change, My bros gains Hope savior saved ya Find out later Aintcha, anxious Ain't it dangerous? Playful maker Make ya say uh...... You came shaken Wasted, gracious Where ya anguish lately, Baby I've been desecrated What a waste'you remain stationed In the matrix What you waiting for Time is of the essence And blessings wont even wait for you

I should have left a note before I left home Return of the intellectual Vessel to level the metronome Using lows as stepping stones For setting goals Solitude is my zone And Being left alone is not alone But the ones who hold me close Don't know this month Felt too worthless Thought I Needed the time away But get homesick on Excursion My mind At war with itself Who else bottles up their thoughts Cause' they don't know who to tell? Oh well It's hell Protect your energy Not enough of a drinker But way too much of a thinker I don't share the progress until it surface No more worries You Put it in the Universe The Digital surgent Through streaming services The gift and the curse of living off of Racking your Brain for the illest verses They done with your album And the rest of the world aint even heard it Checking into hotels where the beds don't serve they purpose My mind's a cheat code But the blood from my nose Got my Notebook jaded to the staining Of all the pages You top 10 I'm Eleven But flip your dimension Upside Down Who caught the reference? My mind At war with itself Who else bottles up their thoughts Cause' they don't know who to tell? Oh well It's hell Protect your energy Not enough of a drinker But way too much of a thinker The sleep deprived Ride with the deepest mind But falling asleep at the wheel Abusing time You crash then Living proof that they failed at addressing Mental health in black men since black kids Who's Dad's split Curing the minds Of the blind poisoned by time And living life Defined as the right But doesn't apply The curator Of legendary lines When the water boils Soak the pens in the Lazarus pit The Words Immortal My mind At war with itself Who else bottles up their thoughts Cause' they don't know who to tell? Oh well It's hell Protect your energy Not enough of a drinker But way too much of a thinker Manipulate the soil Put the state of the planet back in Mother's Nature's hands No man killing for oil No weather on behalf of machine My thoughts digress Don't sweat the Terminator The killer is really Skynet Tetsuo My youth defined by how my mind stretched But the same abilities may have poisoned my whole mindset I push my body until I'm over the hill Just a vessel where the spirit dwells A Ghost in the Shell My mind At war with itself Who else bottles up their thoughts Cause' they don't know who to tell? Oh well It's hell Protect your energy Not enough of a drinker But way too much of a thinker

Who would engage in Mortal Kombat With a blind swordsman Whose vision is more potent And focused Than those who's eyes intact Fully aligned Your designs prevalent Behold the lines of the prototype With the slice Eloquent My mind has guided my blade Through telepathy The mental navigational weaponry From the Elohim Intellectual ichiban My Solitude serenity The ronin roams to make sense of things Lethal and Bushido is everything to the chosen one Appear through smoke and fire Blade on the wire I'm Scorpion Izuna drop Ryu Hyabusa I lotus em Vanish in the petals the flower looking like opium Sprinkle some powder power whitey I mean we POTUS em 44 on ya blocka baracka no gun controlling him Oh my God it’s a coppa throw out the rights they sold to him Mortal Kombat Baraka I choppa nigga you know it’s him Ayo Blades of immortals who got the lighter I'm sort of a genius writer embodied inside a fighter That's ill That's ill Everything I write gone live forever Now how you feel Blades of immortals who got the lighter I'm sort of a genius writer embodied inside a fighter That's ill That's ill Everything I write gone live forever Now how you feel How you feel really tell me how you feel Thought spill pen advanced past puberty it’s a Masamune Sharp as ever baby clever know it’s love If you been rocking from the jump It got way way better Listen storm weathered-leaning Patience Tested Fly shit Exceptional Jacket double breasted gimme beats Then watch me pull this pen up out the sheath Start to feast Flow smooth as butter leather seats Im in it too deep But I am not a cool j Although I rolled these two L’s Hit it watch you levitate The devils in the details Got myself a dinner plate Watch a nigga prevail Walk with an immortal blade Come and get impaled Inhale Your strength comes from out your core he said A myth that was formed from out the back of my head Fairy tales my cerebellum roams for miles i was lead Astray at first now i walk the righteous path instead Wanted it more no longer shall I wander without purpose Left out on my heroes journey but was walking in circles Could capture gold but without your soul then its worthless Panhandled my way home and looked alone on the surface The Truth shines thru how vash eyes do I made contact like the ginyu Don't only train by the eye thats what the fools do Having slices of life transcending space and the time Used the blade to carve out another rhyme kick it divine and I'm out

Moments of clarity with nothing but foreign air to breath Empty subway carts and I don't know where to get off And the feeling of being lost is too familiar Going along for the ride and not knowing where I'm headed is embedded in every letter l've shredded my minds a weapon Ain't that peculiar? My Mic check's the breath of a shooter But I don't support guns So me being conflicted could ruin ya' America, the wild wild west Where you can be a teen Buy an AR-15 with a vest And they won't ask what you plan to do next I go to war for a life without stress And for the things I believe in like a Patriot But my only allengence is to my family And I'll never have faith as long ya'll making America great again I don't know if my head will ever be straight again I lost my Grandma and my best friend And missed the biggest funeral in my fam To rock a show in Japan (And it damaged me as a man right) It's 5 AM in Shibuya It's 5 AM in Shibuya Uh, it's 5 AM in Shibuya I live a life full of maybes and 180's So I twist words to... Try to figure out my lack of virtue The lesson behind completing the circle It's a long road If driven impaired it's sure to hurt you Im hiding from this unlear fog that clouds my patience Feeling complacent In the void Avoiding the matrix I'm rich in other things these dollars don't always Make cents (since) And maybe that's the reason my crib ain't got no basement Cause' I keep it hardcore These powerbombs on the pavement Only the strong survive It's UNI Verses In my mind Where I Keep my planets aligned On the clock full time To fund the job that keeps me alive It's by design For education to hit you with bad credit Punch the clock while they mention my name among the legends I stopped American dreaming When I trotted the globe Mind, body and soul If you sleep you don't know (And it damaged me as man right) It's 5 AM in Shibuya It's 5 AM in Shibuya It's 5 AM in Shibuya Uh, I was in Japan Me and Mega Ran In Japan the last train stops at midnight And the next one doesn't come until 5 AM So we were in Japan we did a show We ended up having to stay out until 5 AM So we did karaoke all night After that we got on the train at 5 AM to take it back to the hostel And I wrote this song on the train And that's why its called 5 AM in Shibuya Peace!

about

Sword of Nature is a truly a sound that is somewhere left of Hip Hop. Produced entirely by Hir-O with Will Underwood III adding his flute to the mix. There is a story within the project that is an extension of the "Cerebral Apex" story. However, the story is narrated entirely in Japanese and the only way to see the English translation is to get the special edition vinyl. Osu!!!
