Abracadabra
Jay Electronica Lyrics


are you watching closely?
can you feel the dawn approaching?


I overheard niggas saying jay was on the verge
he could make rumsfeld resign with rhymes he never heard
commune with the birds
and can manipulate matter with the usage of words
throwin dice on the curb
I'm the best and freshest with the written text, fuck what ya heard

its the metaphysical, dolby digital
any joe`ll tell you the flows so pivotal
every words literal
each diatribe is sort of like an interview,
come get a inner view
right past the man and the myth to the mineral
i was born uptown a mile from the riverview

look (uh), im a simple man ya understand
masterin my temple man trying to expand
but when they think you simple man
they'll try to play you out like you a simpleton
see what im saying
niggas want pain not mercy
im writtin in my moleskin on the train to Canarsie
stand clear of the closin doors
the peo-ple are in constant fear of a trojan war
the vehicle thats supposed to free us is just a hor-
i gotta call em like a see em
even it it means they'll sancture my per diem
the angels will thank me in the streets if I see em
saying there he go but I wouldnt wanna be him
holdin up a three and reppin for new orleans
let us begin

I overheard niggas saying Jay was on the verge
He could make Rumsfeld resign with rhymes he never heard
Commune with the birds
And can manipulate matter with the usage of words
Throwin' dice on the curb
I'm the best and the freshest with the written text, fuck what you heard
It's the, metaphysical, dolby digital
Any Joe'll tell you, the flow's so pivotal
Every word's literal
Each diatribe is sort of like an interview
Come get an inner view
Right past the man and the myth to the mineral
I was born uptown a mile from the river view

That’s FUEGO! My god!

Wake up to your grave it's the reminder on the clock,
And those fleeting bits of satisfaction turn to afterthoughts,
But if you say the magic word, you could crawl back on the verge,
and see that fire in the sky burn everything back to life,
You don't have to sleep to dream and live in paradise.

True Poetry. Forever a fan 🙏🏾
