about

What is God? What is God made of? Who is God? How can I get to know God? Is there a God? Should I care? Why?

'The Body of God' explores the way our bodies and Conscious are shaped by cultural pressures and norms as well as the way one's body and Conscious can break free from these restraints.

This is an account of the journey to Enlightenment, a cycle of the seasons, an analysis of States of being.

So burst into flames and discover The Body of God...

Track Name: Perennial Questions (Prod. Artifact) (1 Corinthians 12:12 - 27)
Who, what, when, where, how, and why is God? Are His words within the Torah or inside the Qur’an? Is he in the smoke of the Lord or under the Tree of Life? Does he reveal himself inside or through Jesus Christ?
The search for answers to these perennial questions continue. Whether or not they’ll be answered is something we will get into. This is my attempt to deal with certain dilemmas and issues. My work with abstractions and metaphors will convince you, but not before being confused and just think I’m messing with you. In fact, this is not the type of work you’re not supposed to just get. You have to make connections because you were meant to. The Body of God is not drawn out and stenciled.

[Heartache]
For those who died by the edge of the sword
[Dreamstate]
Dealt to them by the fallible men of the Lord
[Passing]
Into another dimension
[Away]
To infinity and beyond, let’s see if we can reach Transcendence
Track Name: Mirror (Prod. Tantu Beats)
Hi, what is this?
What am I looking at?
All it is is Everything
Move back Into the Mirror; down
Down, down, down to nothing

I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, and I never will
I can infer, make movement, and speak
But I’m still trying to peel it back and uncover like fugitive sheets
I am who I was yet I still knew the least
Everything we’re doing is stupid but that’s just the truth I teach
I mean, look at the schools more deep and you can see;
They seem to think what their Machine produces is free... it’s not

The insecurity of people with power thoroughly worries me
Why do you think people are scared of Free Masons currently?
Their attention to detail is almost like surgery
But this is not the same as Stalinist Russia or Nazi Germany
The White Man behind the curtain seeks total control
No longer through regimentation they grabbed hold of your soul
Through myths, through comfort, and when we pledged allegiance
Our bodies are molded to grow so that we favor obedience
This is not the same as slavery; it’s not as if we are servants
We’re just working and working for another person’s purpose
While people like us starve in our Mind it isn’t worth it
Because the burden’s too much to bare and we couldn’t care because they deserve it... right?
We try to help; maybe build a few churches
Giving people hope but fuck a condom these people better stay virgins
Empathy takes energy and as long as we are nourished
We can ‘vote and be informed’ which is about as useful as cursive

The Machine must stop
We are all enclosed
They still keep us locked
It is all controlled
From school to church
To the prison halls
That’s where we all learned
Trapped within those walls
The Mirror

Hi, what is this?
What am I looking at?
All it is is everything
Move back Into the Mirror; down
Down, down, down to nothing

I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, but I will soon
I’m breaking barriers and I’m seeing the agents
I’m breaking the basic basis of the Matrix; homie I bleed on these pages
Freedom is sacred and empathy is heaven sent
Jesus wasn’t looking for profit that’s why the White Man don’t get it yet
He don’t get it yet
I been a threat; now let’s get to the message...

The world’s getting fucked by a bunch of African apes
The tombs of themselves are topped by chapels of Grace
Where they gather and pray to a magical face
To an external Authority which has yet to save
Anybody except the people who’ve had the masses enslaved
Whether it’s finance, the papacy, or the national state
Their habits will stay until the world’s covered in ash
Divided by race, sex, and class until we ask:

Hi, what is this?
What am I looking at?
All it is is everything
Move back Into the Mirror; down
Down, down, down to nothing

The Machine must stop
We are all enclosed
Hey still keep us locked
It is all controlled
From school to church
To the prison halls
That’s where we all learned
Trapped within those walls
The Mirror

We are all enclosed. Trapped. Walking down the corridors, aimless

The Mirror
Track Name: Vibrations (Prod. One Tone)
I see connections, I see me, I see connections
Between human beings. Indeed, I see my brethren
This is for my sisters and brothers fighting hard
To find the truth. The youth in pursuit to find their God...
And the autumn leaves all fall away
Enjoy the strata of colors before they all decay
Though their wings fail them in the Fall today
We all shall meet again but until then; Namaste

Vibrations runs through my blood
Their different tones consume me
All I’ve said and all I’ve done
Decays and runs right through me

As I drift between the light and the abyss
I sit and wish I could run... run through the mist
But I’m held back, back farther than before
And I feel trapped, trapped like God is at the door

[Heartache]
And then I saw the darkness

[Dreamstate]
Felt like I was at the edge of time

[Passing]
Through this whole thing I feel so lost

[Away]
I separate this body of (mine/mind)

If I didn’t know the ledge before now I know it
But I still can’t see past the door. What I’m asking for
Is a light, a beacon. Out there I’ll find freedom
That defies reason. My demons inside will die screaming:

Vibrations runs through my blood
Their different tones consume me
All I’ve said and all I’ve done
Decays and runs right through me

[Heartache]
And then I saw the darkness

[Dreamstate]
Felt like I was at the edge of time

[Passing]
Through this whole thing I feel so lost

[Away]
I separate this body of (mine/mind)

To imitate the Body of God I must be like
The stars, the moon, and the sun that just seems right
All that is good is outside of me, right?
I mean god created the Universe because he’s right-
-eous. Yes, that’s correct. That’s what it all means
Frozen rivers are forming under fall leaves
The Water levels are lowered as my eyelids close
And they become dormant

Vibrations runs through my blood
Their different tones consume me
All I’ve said and all I’ve done
Decays and runs right through me
Track Name: Demolition (Ft. Caprot) (Prod. Emiljo A.C.)
[Caprot]

The field is barren, you'll see not a single heathen standin
Angels weakly challenge while demons prepare for wreaking havoc
The demons aligned with a vigor, swagger
Not as if the winner matters but their menacing spewin malicious laughter
This is the end of time, why had the angels ever tried?
They saw the hopelessness but couldn't let them; couldn't step aside
And now they battle tears glistening in heaven's skies
Raising the daggers they were given to try and quell the tide

Demons are not worried, raising their weapons
Maces axes spears swords, no angel is steppin
And with their confidence they make the impression
That the darkness has won, without making an effort
Contrasting approaches to the same thing
Both ready to charge, but the angels their hope is well past fading
And so with a cohesive sinister grin
The demons charge, let the demolition begin

[Baph]

My eyes glaze over
The Waters are still lowered
I am confused, confused
Fused with the cold air around me
End this shit now, please!

The winter wind blows over glacial formations
It lifts off the ocean surface and floats to the forest, raining
It gets worse and worse and become a curse of Earth
We pervert the dirt, the water, and air we take in
Already know the answers advancement is steady dancing
Chanting 'Death is Innert' while Cancer is getting cancer
These motherfuckers know what time it is
'get the FUCK out'

The machine consumes more it's antibiotic resistant
The Viper continues to force her constrictions
This is the blade placed on the wrist vertically
Burst into flames we're in a state of emergency
Angels and demons play charades crusading our freedom
Our bodies are made of Dust we must make our allegiance
And slaughter the officers of the prison within
The structures lost the light
Let the demolition begin

Bloody rain cascades cleanses the waters before the last days
The last poet writing the last page
No depth but we sink or swim so to avoid the winter wind
Track Name: Stratum (Prod. Adlib)
Let the Water rise. Let the Water Rise
Let the Water rise and awake your dormant eyes
Let the Water rise. Let the Water rise
Let the Water rise and peer through a martyr’s eyes

I see angels and demons caressing harps with broken strings
Striking too many dissonant chords now the Walls are opening
The strings still shattered but collective thought is noticing
Thought is noticing... Thought is noticing
The white rose that faces west. The Viper that didn’t fade she left
Her armies cast angels down deep, half willingly
That’s why I stand by Satan’s left but what does Baph really mean?

“Philosophy is a hands on activity. Philosophy not made around the camp fire. Philosophy based on the acquisition of extreme experiences. That’s how you figure out what the world is not by bicycling around in the burbs, but by forcing extreme experiences. The reason people refer to psychedelic endeavors with the vocabulary of travel (‘taking a trip’ and so on) because that is an extreme endeavor. [Unintelligible]. Change your clothes” – Terence McKenna

A stratum of colors and experiences emerge
While peering into the shapes and silhouettes of our most cherished memories
O’ the lies we believed, o’ the lies we are believing
O’ the images we received and are still receiving
There is no hand without a background; no up without down
Thus you must die before attaining martyrdom

I see life and death standing on a sunbeam trying to balance
Cause and effect, terror and courage
I’m very discouraged from unhiding my prowess thus losing equilibrium
The stratum of the Universal fabric is a continuum
That when exposed oxidates bones of a past life
The Structure falls, the Structure ruptures and collapses
Swarming masses of star stuff coalesced together to contemplate itself only to disassemble
Track Name: Moment of Truth (Prod. General Beats)
I am the clay, the mold,Annotate the malleability of cognition
The permanence of omnipresence, I am omniscient
But I still haven't realized so I use real eyes
To refute their real lies, look at the world around it's almost like God did it
Don't let my body remain docile
Don't let me submit as I become more hostile
Don't let me hide myself; shine, my friend, shine
Free your being from the Viper's grasp; climb, my friend, climb
Climb, my friend, climb. High, my friend, high
All the time. Let's see if I can reach my limits
Let the ash cool, the wings of the Phoenix glisten
The Spring storm pours the tears of Jesus glisten
My tears and, of course, yours drenched the world before
I was born and evolved now I'm breathing in it
The reason this is here is not me; it's you
What I speak is true We know what we need to do

Reveal that

Chorus
*This is the Moment of Truth*


I embody stars and galaxies
Frauds with fallacies have brought about the facade that's shrouded me
Ya'll have doubted me, now I look down on thee
Well, more like surrounding me. Enlightenment works powerfully
Ayo I wove the fabric of space into a blanket
Fucked your Mom underneath after we both chiefed the dankest weed
I make this green, this cash, this paper
Get on your knees and submit, it's in your nature
Imma Mod this whole game, wearing maud, flying over like Maude
Jehovah's a fraud, when he opens his door he's closing you off
My clothing is off so I reveal myself to the people
Slaughtering gots and Jesus on top the steeple
On top the cathedral I stand shouting at the sky
I want there to be peace though I know thousands will have to die
I am abstraction, a rhizome, I am collective thought
Put a mirror to the right and know you're standing next to God
Track Name: Float (Prod. Mr. Quest)
I float farther, I float softer
I float ‘til I can’t float no longer
Bathe in the summer sun, I am one with One
It’s just begun my ascension into a Martyr
Sent by the Father, sent by the Intuition
I was under the Tree of Life, awaiting my Crucifixion
All of me is found among human essence
All of Us is found Away through transcendence

Homie, I’m on that fucking real shit
I feel it hit the pit of my stomach, a strata of colors
Appear real quick. I have made my connections
I’ve gone through the motions and changed my perspective
The cycle of the seasons keep their ancient procession
After Manifestation I’ll attain my Ascension
The Body of God stands clothed before the Mirror
Enclosed; the white rose glows so you step through the glass
And float

Float, float, float, float, float away
And burst into flames
Float, float, float away
The circle has turned and all has merged into place

I smoke stronger, I smoke ganja
I smoke ‘til I can’t smoke no longer
Because of Heartache I get to Dreamstate
After Passing Away I’ll start fresh on a clean slate
[Heartache] and then I saw the light
[Dreamstate] Felt like I was in the middle of a field meditating while
[Passing] my chakras bright. And they aligned with the stars and the moon
[Away] Only when I’m in tune do they ever offer the Truth

My vision blurs as the water level recedes
I begin to adjust to the overwhelming brightness
I’ve slashed the heart of the machine, it feels like it’s
Part of a lucid dream because it seems like I’ve resolved my crisis
The external authority’s glory surely diminishes
But the vibrations in my blood remain dissonant
‘cause The Body of God stands naked before the Mirror
Exposed; the white rose grows so I step inside myself
And float

Float, float, float, float, float away
And burst into flames
Float, float, float away
The circle has turned and all has merged into place

Float, float, float, float, float away
Float, float, float away

The Body of God stands bare before the Mirror
Exposed; the white rose dies so we step in ourselves
And float
