    I AM THE ONE
    STARCHILD of the sun
    and someone told a lie
    that during seventh day
    I rested,
    actually I committed THEOCIDE
    after I traveled to the future to see the world I manifested
    only to be resurrected, by the one who told the lies
    yet it’s no secret that I’ve lied.
    I’ve lied about lies, lying about lies, lying about lies, that I never even lied.
    But I make up such creative lies that you should see right through
    clear to the root I tell lies so you can search for truth.
    Cause truth is the prize of birth received on physical planes like earth.
    What lies have you believed?
    Maybe Trinity - well Trinity is truth
    that was no lie but the first trinity was me, myself and the eye.
    Eye of discretion to believe what is proved as truth.
    Now the ever-growing eye that I and eye and I am
    is, always being, has always been
    I made the concept of sin stitching conscience within.
    Next to the desire to win.
    But you can’t win the race If I already came in first place.
    You are trying to compete against me though godlike you may be
    you’ll never succeed against me.
    See I brought you from primordial seas
    I swung you into atmosphere and made a breeze
    a gas you’ve called air and you wouldn’t even dare
    come to challenge me in my lair.
    You see,
    I AM CREATION AND DESTRUCTION
    LIKE VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS.
    I'VE EJACULATED UNIVERSES THROUGH THOUGHT ERECTIONS
    You Honor Me When you Observe The Seven Directions,
    Or regions
    Spirit I and you are legions
    of the light and sometimes light burns making some lesions
    Yet They’re not scars or cancers they’re just melanin enhancers
    Enhancing, and enhancing to some it is enchanting
    Some are enraptured by the color of darkened skin taking no other.
    Like once you’ve gone black you’ll never go back.
    the first man and woman were black
    But maybe you’ll realize
    maybe you’ll realize that deep within my words I have hidden a lie.
    A lie you can only see with naked eye, with first eye.
    The truth lies within lies The lie lies within truth.
    but the lie tells the truth because it is the truth of a lie
    and the truth tells a lie because it is a lie of the truth.
    If the truth shall set you free then the lie must trap you in
    I am trapped within a lie
    I am trapped within a lie
    like Monotonous loops Like Hip-Hop-notic drumbeats
    Causality loops like the shackles on wrists or feet
    I am locked within a lie a lie is locked within I.
    Eyes locking on a lie lies locking on I
    I am lying in the black hole of the sun
    and I am the black whole of the sun
    I am not the only one.
    Only I am not the one
    who hid light in night
    I am the lie, the lie is I, and I’ll continue to lie,
    Lie dormant till my next dawns rise
    The lie’s truth
    the truth lies
    the truth lies in the next sunrise.
    But realize that truth is what you believe truth to be.
