Lyrics

Follow lead, point to my head

We got Dresden, solid dead

I ain't gonna stand, leaking from my hand

Don't like the front of me on a mand


Be still the messagely

Distending a modern tale

By phone line

Might have seen

On read by rhyme


The violence strike and spare

Seems fortified down square

What is the quality reaching low fo side

My tears intendedly bonified


You still motor high

Reach sending a modern tease

Right phone line

High voice tone

Forty lee and four why
