    like the powerful "Hubble"
    turn the lens IN on my people
    like a "Romper Room" mirror
    your sh*t ALWAYS seems see-through

    welcome to America
    "land of the free"
    population of hataz
    DOUBLED in 2003

    where many lack da confidence
    ta say sh*t ta ya face
    but, stand poised, aimed an' ready
    ta turn a life inta disgrace

    why you hate me?
    cause you hate you?

    don't know how ta cope?
    wash ya mouf out wit soap
    …or "Borax"
    now it seems like ya thorax
    keeps producing caca
    squeezing it hard
    cheesing it hard

    RUN… get da plunger
    prepare for da tundra
    cause thas where I'ma send you

    can't get out da ghetto?
    so, you can't even let go?
    …of my name?
    it seems like wit me
    you got dis desire ta shame?!

    subway ride through da caves
    seeing rats an' bums dat ain't bathed

    I see FAR
    I ball HARD
    my Sagitarrius is risin'
    the constellation's on da horizon
    so, stop jivin' an' cryin'
    ya need ta SHUT ya mouf an' stop lyin'

    you fake a'zz drone
    out there smackin' on bones
    like some lyric-less wannabe
    wit rhymes as cheesy as brie

    but I
    the Marquis
    the word-banging emcee
    hereby speak FORTH a Decree
    and simply roll OUT my Degree

    to leave all your "caquita"
    in a stinky PILE of debris
    and walk out into the open
    my Buddha eLEVAted an' freed

    why you want me ta…

    act like you?
    think like you?
    be like you?

    you can't stand my resistance?
    you can't stand my persistence??
    …ta be me?
    …the tree?
    …forever I'm free?!

    I don't live in a box
    6 squares got me locked
    unlike all of you hataz
    I DARED ta get off da block

    so, don't sit there an' hate
    you should learn ta relate
    wit ya mind
    open up
    let da breathin' align

    your coiled-up spirit
    ain't no need ta fear it

    like Kundalini
    breathin' colors dat spin
    like Capoeira
    kickin' culture dat wins

    I DON'T have ta be like you
    I am unique
    I am confident in my ways
    I seem to give OFF all these rays
    instead of B's… I get A's
    your consciousness is LEFT in a daze
    …da haze
    …da fog
    wandering around like a dog

    where's ya license?
    ta kill
    ya ain't got one?!
    so chill

    you have no reason
    ta execute treason
    …on me
    cause we BOTH of dis tree
    and we BOTH can be free

    so, you don't need ta be swipin' muthaf*ckas wit ya "Metrocard"
    you ain't gotta tell a muthaf*cka dat times have gotten hard

    cause I know
    …bro
    it's time ta GROW
    like a "Chia Pet"
    or a violent 'fro
    sit down by dis tree
    an' toke on dis "Indo"

    no drugs
    no liquor
    dis is something much quicker

    …an' na-tu-raaal

    slow dis sh*t down
    turn ya beat inside around
    an' revolve it
    …evolve it
    let da herb help ya solve it

    as da stars continue ta gyrate
    an' twist around this globe
    turn our attention inwards
    and let all of da neurons probe

    you not hatin' no more
    cause ya tastin' da seed of all life
    an' now ya peeled off away
    all those irrelevant layers of strife.

    smoke and be MERRY
    FORGET all da worry
    an' be more like me
    da wandering tree
    my roots stretch ALL OVER
    universal in creed.
