"Is it much, too much to ask
Not to hide behind the mask"

Head on straight, mask on crooked
Exit stage left with the cast on took it
Off like a khufi, the figure's a big doofy
He tried to get schoolie with that two for you

One two for me G, cut the cranky attitude
Wet 'em like a handkerchief, or a stanky fatter dude
Whether you'se a rapper or a damn singer
Once you in there's only one way out, like a gang banger

With a new crew key chain and street name
What set do he claim for fame, game
Just to keep feather and stay dipped
You need it like a letter or better yet, a get away whip

This old thing's rusted and crusted as the bowl
Rings the old kings busted
Planning in, global starvation and fat herb
Now what in tarnation did I go and do that fer?

Stuff happens, like getting snuffed for tough tit rappings
See I told him enough, quit your yapping
The same apply to any and all chumps
The only question he had for y'all was how many lumps

Three or four, either or
Mon cheri amore, so why you need your heater for?
The super villain slid in your party for free
Want an MC, get out of here, kid, you bother me

The day I took my mask off
My face was missing for two days
For the record, G, came back a year later
A whole new identity, Tony Stark's pedigree
My money green like my nickname was celery

Who is Ghost? He flashed his toast
Never wore sheets, but bulletproof coats
Oh no! The feds cried for the mask back on
Told them Ghost is dead, he'll return at the crack of dawn

Few years from now, him and his pals
Before the Jetson era arrive
He'll be back summer time 2005
With a half of face iron, the other half water, look like alien science
In the summer time, you can see the face boil
But the other side, I keep lubed with the Pennzoil
Mad loyal, when the winter time come
I gets stuck with my brain all numb

Like I ate thousand Icees and frozen Pepsis
Aquaman's pops can't water check me
Disrespect me, indirectly
I seen his feet and they both lefty, he steppin' half correctly

As I stroll the globe and terrorize the planet
With a Bill Clinton mask and them Playskool hammers
Me and Doom, always be the best on the landing
Superheroes for life until our souls vanish

Check me out my name is Brak and that's a fact
I got a mom and a dad and they are out back
We're sitting by the pool, and we nibble on snacks
And we eat a big lunch and we all take naps

Why the beat stop? Hey! Hey!
I got a Mask too, so give me the mic (You're no Doom!)
Come on Danger Mouse, give me that beat
Turn the beat around, love to hear percussion
(You suck) Turn it upside down
Love to hear the (I know talent and you ain't got it)
I wasn't done
