It’s Only A Matter of Time

Artist: Weerd Science
Track: “It’s Only A Matter of Time”

You rappers are fucking corny
You’re morbidly boring
Dawn of the Dead, from my ears blood is pouring
With that said let it be known the revolt is dawning
I’m forwarding the message, this is my calling.

This is a message sent to the listener:
The year is 2055,
Weerd Science has just died.
This is a timeline of the events
That will most likely take place in your life:
2004, things begin to change.
That is all I am able to tell you at this point,
For any more information will disrupt
The equilibrium of this wonderful nation
So be patient.
My reason for contacting you:
Show respect, it’s very due.

Now let me get my point across, not all rap is corny.
Some of these underground MCs, they don’t call me.
But shortly thereafter I have to make the switch
From Science to Stanley the rapper, my hands become fists
My problem lies in the mainstream, you’re killin’ it
You thought that you invented it, that you was the king of it
But you really bringin’ it down
To whatever that’s beneath the earth’s surface
Word is my birth purpose and haunted a place
Ain’t got normal cells in the cervix
I spray carnage from my larynx
So far, you see

It’s only a matter of time
Time’s of the essence, time is man made
It is only a matter of time
It is a random and dangerous world
It is only a matter of time
Time’s of the essence, time is man made
It is only a matter of time
It is a random and dangerous world

Time is of the essence and lessons get taught
Every rapper that gets bought I become more distraught
And I caught this disease and the fire breathes in
And I fought for what I believed in
Peak into my heart and see why I’m leavin’
Look into my lungs and, yes, I’m still breathing
I’m barely alive, my brain patterns are scattered at best
Yet my chest still rises with every breath
I bet you won’t even listen
I’m talkin’ in it again
Every song that I hear is just testing my aim
Onward he cometh, riseth he came
And he comes in a new form, stands out of the norm
Born into a world that only knows how to conform
Perform these raps, pray for the collapse of a giant
Rebel commander, Weerd Science
This is why it’s so vital to break the cycle
I’m the mass maniac, my name’s not Michael
Or Jason or Freddy, Rawhead or Pinhead
I won’t stop until all wack rappers are dead
The whole crop in one fell swoop
I come down from above to your Lexus Coup
Your jewelry is tomfoolery
Soon you’ll recognize me as an MC

It’s only a matter of time
Time’s of the essence, time is man made
It is only a matter of time
It is a random and dangerous world
It is only a matter of time
Time’s of the essence, time is man made
It is only a matter of time
It is a random and dangerous world

Students and soldiers, I told ya’s
It’s only a matter of minutes before I finish getting older
The fire grows colder, and I’m disgusted
Like little dead girls in Boulder I can not be molded, folded or pressed.
The beginning stage of this war is just a catalyst
And I’m restless, my shitlist grows longer
Breath shorter, my heart pounds as I border the oustide of this ring
Charter my craft but I can’t look past these things
I dwell on them. Kids are fed shit
Radio sucks kids, fuck it.
I hope that they kill me, I’ll die for this cause.
The revolution’s real to me.
Nobody’s feelin’ me.
But I won’t stop, no label’s’ll put me on.
But I still try to top every wack rapper.
Tear of his lips so he’s no longer a factor.
Don’t you get it yet?
Don’t you fucking get it yet?

It’s only a matter of time
Time’s of the essence, time is man made
It is only a matter of time
It is a random and dangerous world
