lyrics

(W!SE)

With a mind that's sharper than the edge of a samurai sword
his ultimate reward was honor, not awards
way too enlightened for the limelight's prize
of respect in the eyes of those focused upon one dialect
Heck no! Never was speechless
just fluent in the language of credence
tell it like it is with a beat full of order
amidst the chaotic business heat as the spark gets colder

He understood within his footseps something would arise where his plant once stood in
without a podium, stand, soapbox, or a sit in
he just rose above and said "listen to this"
The Tree has gone but the fruit remains
in hearts of the cubs that continue to carry his name
and so we never, ever farm his story in vain
we just cultive his message by hitting replay, all day, so let me hear you say


(Sir J and Shing02)

Sunset, sunrise
Some fade, some shine in the midst of the mortified
Some fight, some bleed
Some run to go hide, while others mobilize

That's right, sometimes
some laugh, some lie just to keep their dreams privatized
some fight, some bleed
Some ball it all up and keep it trapped inside

Some days, some nights
some choose to lay down their life as a sacrifice
Some fight, some bleed
to sum it all up: some end up immortalized

Some days, some nights
some live, some die in the way of the samurai
some fight, some bleed
Sun up to Sun down: The Sons of the...


(W!SE)

You better look to the air around him
an aura surrounding them like the air above a mountain
but no doubt, man of the hour
heir apparent gon' show the crowd with raw power
his shadow alone towers over the cowards
who would rather stay at home crying out it's now or
Never, ever, ever again looking back
love some, trust none, help all, but NEVER FORGET that

to always set sail to the sunset
no second guessing, 3 2 1, rock the mic: testing!
7 8 9, sign of the times, recognize
instinctively steer your ship through the wild side
fire all cannons, boy meets world
became a man and cease the day and night
earn the girl's hand in marriage, grand royalty
conquer the barren lands of barbarians who never could
care less about the rest of their plight

(Sir J and Shing02)

Sunset, sunrise
Some fade, some shine in the midst of the mortified
Some fight, some bleed
Some run to go hide, while others mobilize

That's right, sometimes
some laugh, some lie just to keep their dreams privatized
some fight, some bleed
Some ball it all up and keep it trapped inside

Some days, some nights
some choose to lay down their life as a sacrifice
Some fight, some bleed
to sum it all up: some end up immortalized

Some days, some nights
some live, some die in the way of the samurai

(Shing02)

Sharp like an edge of a samurai sword
The mental blade cut through flesh and bone
Though my mind's at peace, the world out of order
Missing the inner heat, life gets colder
Oh yes, I have to find my path
No less, walk on earth, water and fire
The elements compose a magnum opus
My modus operandi is amalgam steel packed tight in micro
Chip on my armor a sign of all-pro
The ultimate reward is honor not awards
At odds with the times in wars with no Lords, a Freelancer
A battle cry of a hawk make a dove fly and a tear dry
Wonder why a lone wolf don't run with a clan
Only trust your instincts and be one with the...


(The plan)
(The plan)


(Shing02)

Some days, Some nights
Some live, Some die
in the way of the Samurai
Some fight, Some bleed
Sun up to Sun down
The Sons of a battle cry

Some days, Some nights
Some live, Some die
in the name of the Samurai
Some fight, Some bleed
Sun up to Sun down
The Sons of a battle cry
