Ode To The Modern Man (Lightning Blend)

This song is by Atmosphere, features Spawn and appears on the album Overcast! (1997).

Original video
This is an ode to the modern man
It's the ode to the modern man
This is the ode to the modern man
Word up, this is the modern man

This is that ode to the modern man
This goes out to that modern man
This is the ode to the modern man
It's to the modern man, lightning blend

Word to the E, I'm a tad bit to easy on self
And maybe I should keep a closer tab on my health
I suppose that it's simpler said than completed
Allow me to attack but in fact again retreated

Completed, this word search crumpled it up and ate it
My hunger for my blue collar heaven keeps me sedated
Escaped it last night in a dream
And now I sleep with a flashlight and it seems

To keep the nightmare demons and semen laced portions parallel
And apart like Stevens Avenue and Portland
A much traveled one way or as low as a potential one
If these camels don't stunt me, I'mma grow with my pencil

Once I climb these skulls of this MC graveyard
I'll see the sun again, I'll jump and run again
So come on over visit 'cause I got a lot to say
And tell Stress I ain't mad, 'cause I got my way

But my man Spawn is here now so I'm gon' make it brief
Finish up my coffee, gather up my shit and leave
I got a army of peers, we fight single-handed
And I won't damage your brain till I understand it

You have only one chance to advance to the next stage I'm at
Do you really think that you actually whup ass? Do I have to ask you?
Did you see what happened to the last dude?
Tried to compare styles, word, he got his ass chewed

Now with this in mind
Do you still want to bring your shit and find out the hard way
Spawn's not the one to play
Trade blades with ya, might as well slit your own wrists with a razor
It's best, 'cause I'm crazier

Blazin' ya for my own amusement
In tune with your whole body when I split ya whole fixture
This is what happens when your on my shit lista
Brains to give a blista, so next time ya call me Sir Rivista?

It's the words, twist a tongue
Used to make the verbs hit ya
Now do you get the fuckin' picture?
Well, if ya got a same, ya better call 'em
'Cause my behavior blows kids away like a tall wind

I take y'all in between my jaws for consumption
MC's and coffee at my luncheon
One or two lumps and some cream, call the team for the gathering
Bring mics and turntables, let's do our thing

Ha, 'cause it's an ode to the modern man
This is that ode to the modern man
Yeah, this goes out to that modern man
From Minneapolis St. Paul to that modern man

It's like a dedication to the modern man
This one here, this is for that modern man
From Atmosphere going out to that modern man
It's to that modern man, lightning blend

Now for the umpteenth time we kick rhymes about something
Can't front, I'm frustrated with heads that don't listen
My position's off balance, it's a constant challenge
Between the talents and the underlying mission

I could fill your heads some more with metaphors
Some cute catch phrases filtered through accessible themes
But if I don't stay sincere to love and hate
How can I differentiate between chasin' cream and chasin' dreams

Oh yeah, fuck an MC in my city that wants to diss me
If I was to bounce to Atlanta with Shocker y'all would miss me
So kiss me smack dab on the asshole while you battle
I'm with your wife sharin' a Newcastle
Big up to Gene Pool

'Cause he's the modern man
Word up, that kid Abuse, that kid's a modern man
To Self One, yo that kid's a modern man
Full Circle, you know them kid's modern men

The Native Ones, word up, to that modern man
Beyond, Extreme, this goes to the modern man
Dynospectrum out to that modern man
From Atmosphere goin' out that that modern man

Word up, this is the ode to the modern man
It goes like one time for that modern man
This goes out here now to that modern man
It's to that modern man, it's to that modern man

Kid yo, this is the ode to the modern man
It goes word up yeah, to that modern man
It's for that modern man, it's for that modern man
It's for that modern man, lightning blend
