dälek – Street Diction lyrics
1. Evolve from high bred intellectuals who slept on park bench
Topple you off pedestal
Thrive at any level
Find it hard to settle
Traverse habitat that tests a man's meddle
Fist grip the neck of devils
Barely time to revel
They fencing off the ghettos
Most heads I know never even seen a meadow
Son of concrete given birth and death on same street
We got no time to weep

2. And what the steel don't dead, rots away with disease
Gettin' carried by six is our only release
Time has come to pull sword from sheath
Raise the meek...
I love these beats!
See shifty eyes like they never held heat
Walk 50 miles, and we never retreat
Re-read every scroll cause I barely do sleep
Hope to reach my apex like Kerouac at his peak!

Chorus:
Best you don't speak, just listen
Bound to choke the life out your chest like these mics that I'm grippin'
20/20 through eyes with ambition
Here to redefine the street diction
(2x)

3. Vent frustration over underground airwaves
Displayed traits that convey my conviction
Fall between the cracks of this system
Systematically act erratic to emphasize position
Post-apocolyptic landscape creates vivid image
Struggle ain't made for the timid
In these Bricks one mistake leave you rigid
Ain't here for the gimmicks
Hip-Hop is how you live it
Check the verbal rhythm
Reduced to head nods when you feel'em
The fortunate connect, the rest get the serum
Poisonous ideas infect like snakes venom
Vernacular adapts to express what's in them
Masses organized once again pose threat
"Chickens home to roost" is what a wise man said
Since he spit truth they made sure he bled
It's been much too long that we been misled

Chorus:
Best you don't speak, just listen
Bound to choke the life out your chest like these mics that I'm grippin'
20/20 through eyes with ambition
Here to redefine the street diction
(4x)
