I punch in for my job in required uniform
(1-9-8-4 at the door)
In a black trench coat and Air Ones required uniform
(1-9-8-4 at the door)
I kill the Boogy Man, explore, and find a unicorn
(1-9-8-4 at the door)
Sweat, blood, dry ice and mic cords, required uniform

Verse 1:
My design? Brutalist
Break shit down to the rudiment
Travel bans? Ludicrous
Shanghai, Chi-town, Budapest
Doomsday coming on a moon eclipse
Run up on me, nigga, I'll shoot a bit
I've got a man eater with the cutest clit
And she only wanna fuck me in a moving whip so..


Verse 2:
Aperitif, crudites, with monosodium glutamate
Cut through the noise, let's mutilate
He said, she said, what's the true debate?
In a dark time, illuminate
Let's fight, let's fuck, let's ruminate
I'm feeling like a dog on neuter day
Im'a need a double shot and a buddha break before..
