    It’s after midnight and the mood is RIGHT!
    For my flow to rain down and hit the beat so tight
    Snores from the corridors tell me I’m all alone
    This is my time to pick up the microphone
    And sound off to all the noise that’s been causing me grief
    I’ll get right down to it…who gave you the nerve to tell me what to believe
    This is my life and I’m gonna live it to the best of my ability
    Do I look like a fool or maybe you just think I’m crazy!

    No. You thought you could control me and keep me locked in a deep slumber
    It took me a while but brotha I finally got yo number
    Yeah, your number is 16 ‘cause that’s how long I’ve been sleep
    But the blinders are off and you remind me of my jeep…beep…beep
    Get yo tale out of the way
    The gloves are off too and I’ve got something to say
    No longer June Cleaver or Carol Brady
    I’m going out like Maya Angelou, Marianne Williamson and the rest of my beautiful black ladies

    Love is nice but common sense is so much better
    You thought you got the best of my love but your plan is older than Bill Cosby’s sweater
    I’m hip to you and ‘Ain’t no stopping me now’
    I want the kit and caboodle, the kitchen sink…the whole d*** cow
    Living life like it’s golden is not just a pipe dream
    God has so much in store for me and I plan to go after it like a crack fiend
    I’ll leave no table unturned because what He has for me is mine
    But you don’t get to come on this journey my friend…I’m headed to the front of the line!

    I'm thinking that those words came pouring out of you like a barrier just broke. Enjoyed the fire in your flow.
