Swordsman Lyrics

Swordsman - Genius/GZA

Written by:GZA/Genius/Robert F. Diggs/Walter Reed

 

When a motherf**ker steps out his place

And gets slapped in his motherf**kin' face

Just because the motherf**ker tried to base

The ship you take the ship you take

And while I see his whole click passes by

Motherf**kers think they qualify

And for those niggaz want to try

The ship you take the ship you take

Yo

I'm not caught up in politics

I'm no black activist on a so called scholars d*ck

I come through with the wu and drop math

And versatile freestyles bombs and phonographs

And deliver all things and other in weight

Searched to death on how living things relate

'Cause at a young age

I was molded in a religion I relied on

And got caught up in superstition

Scared to split pole duck black cats

Once in a while threw salt over my back

But with knowledge of self from off the shelf

Made things seemed complicated now small like elves

So turn off the lights light a candle and have a seance

Pull the lid off the dean martin scandal

Witches warlocks spooks and holy ghosts

Rza lets defraud the host

When a motherf**ker steps out his place

And gets slapped in his god damned face

Just because the motherf**ker tried to base

The ship you take the ship you take

And while I see his whole click passes by

Motherf**kers think they qualify

And for those niggaz want to try

The ship you take the ship you take

 

We were on the same ship when the slaves were checked

I had to pull your card you was on the top deck

So I plotted my escape

I saw the thin line between love and hate

And fast from the hog on the plate

I suffered brutal pains from whips and chains

Punishments that were set to wash the brain

So look listen observe and also respect this jewel

Drawed up di tect and reflect this

Light I shine that 'cause my power to be find

Through the truth which manifest through eternal minds

Purified gases and masses the same elements

That helped spark civilization classes

I see brothers quote math plus degrees

Look at professor *ss niggaz can't feed they own seeds

When a motherf**ker steps out his place

And gets slapped in his motherf**kin' face

Just because the motherf**ker tried to base

The ship you take the ship you take

And while I see his whole click passes by

Motherf**kers think they qualify

And for those niggaz want to try

The ship you take the ship you take

When a motherf**ker steps out his place

And gets slapped in his god damn face

Just because the motherf**ker tried to base

The ship you take the ship you take

And while I see his whole click passes by

Motherf**kers think they qualify

And for those niggaz want to try

 

The ship you take the ship you take
