It's been a minute, since we were menace
Vintage imprinted in my mind free
Running like Dennis Kucinich, going nowhere
Peeking out the window to get in it
Now we snappin' on the records like Guiness
Pull wisdom like oral hygenists
Now you got your own practice and I got my own clinic
Seeking prophets
Like folks falling on hard times to find answers
Check my sentence, I be doing time
But I be doing, I be doing, I be doing fine
Cuz I be working out, while you sharpen your mind
Behind these bars it's survival of the
My shark tale's been growing enormous
The buffet is open, I can eat all the fish
To the top, till the gas pump stops
Till I'm full, till I'm bout to pop

*scratch, scratch*

It's like, hey dude, where do I start?
I had to part with the North when my throat was parched
Shit, all that I did was meander in the dark
Look, lookin' for a light, search, searchin' for a spark
Found it
Then I saw the full scope, and it was at that point that I was utterly astounded
Sought refuge in the ink
As I was introduced to the vixens, to the smoke, to the drink

And admittedly - not much of a surprise -
At one time or another, all three done crippled me
Retreated to the Mitten when my vision was blurred
Thankfully I never stopped referring to written word
For advice and, you know as well as I,
Some of the stuff that comes out of your pen is hard to describe
It's got me out of binds that sideswiped my concentration
Ten years condensed to an 8-bar summation?

Last time we saw one another, neither of us would have expected this
Speaking our minds so readily whenever we please
Sashimi raw, reaching almost unattainable bliss
Every road has a bit of a wind
Each one with a specific design
Many a difference between yours and mine
And yet, we ended up following the same signs
Now whenever times get tough, we bust out with the rhymes like UH!
