lyrics

BATTLE THE EARTH

"We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first Revolution." - John F. Kennedy

This is your last warning.

MC Cyclops:
It's time to battle the Earth,
That's just my theta,
You try to enturbulate me man...
I gotta see you later,
I'm just so spiritual,
I go through walls you tool,
You think you're sick of me,
Well man, I'm sick of you.

Chorus:
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic.

EtherGun:
Hip hop will save the world.

This is your last warning.

MC Cyclops:
Pick up my sound waves,
I'm spittin' satellites tonight,
Broadcast 'em down into the world and give it light,
That's just my theta,
Feel it now or feel it later,
Be a lover or a hater,
Luke Skywalker's beatin' Darth Vader,
It's a timeless battle,
Just ask J-J-J K Rowling,
Or Philip Pullman,
Even polar bears are armored as they're going,
It's a tiny little planet but the ants are spreadin',
Sendin' Starship Troopers tryin' to stop the weddin',
Robert Heinlein writin' LRH to make it better,
Thomas Paine to Thomas Jefferson,
You write another letter,
It's time to topple a king,
Or maybe a dozen men,
Mission Earth, Doomed Planet, Volume Ten.


Chorus:
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic.

MC Cyclops:
It's like the Lord of the Rings,
When I walk around New York,
Cause when I see a cop,
It's like I see an Orc,
And I'm out looking for the wizard,
Maybe he's up at Wall St.,
So I get my Doctor Strange on,
And let my power creep,
And you can find me up at Midtown Comics,
With the hobbits,
Disagreeing with the world,
It's time to split the profits,
Cause I'm a greedy bastard,
Just call me Scrooge McDuck,
Ripping metals out the earth,
Just like a 12th Planet truck,
'cause Zechariah Sitchin, David Icke,
You get the bitchin',
Or turn the TV to Obama,
Now you get the fiction.

Chorus:
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic.

MC Cyclops:
I'm blasting off just like a Tesla Roadster,
Off the coaster,
Change the world like Elon Musk,
And now I'm on a boaster,
Got the power of a Mark Twain,
Feel my pain,
Put the books out myself,
And fill the world's brain,
Put the icepick like a psych,
But I'm killin' 'em tonight,
Couldn't stop me with a straight jacket,
Cause I'm too tight,
Even if they electric shocked me,
Like they did to Hemingway,
I'm never gonna end it,
So get the hell out my way,
I'm bout to end the fed like Ron Paul,
Give me the ball,
And disappear into the trash,
You always wanna recall.


Chorus:
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,
Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,

Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic,

Call it 22.0 - Games,
When I rock a mic.
REPEAT
