​On The Eve Of War (Julio Cesar Chavez Mix)

This song is by Jedi Mind Tricks and appears on the album Legacy Of Blood (2004).

[Verse 1 - Vinnie Paz]
This is raw, all across the board, Liquid Sword Chamber
If it's coming from my jaw, then it's pure anger
Heavy metal rap, with a 44 banger
We can settle that, let the mic cord hang ya
I pay homage to the best of them, like Christopher Wallace
And bring drama to the rest of 'em, with biscuits from coppers
I'm with the Lord-Justice, and we raw gritty
Picture hell, Philadel to New York City
I brought a four with me, we can capture the ring
And now we more merciless than the Statue of Ming
And y'all are more purposeless than a pacifist king
You gonna die, like a brawl with a gat in the Bing
It's a passionate thing, the way we make classics
Genuine brilliance or innate madness
Yeah, we all spin on the same axis
And this chrome thing here leave your frame backless
The police always trying to aim flame at us
So I don't mind when a pig brain splatters
I don't mind that we all gonna die soon
I return to the silence of God's tomb
Yeah

[Hook - GZA] x2
There is no escaping once my blade start scraping
My sword indeed make more niggaz bleed
Wanabe MC's is shaken
So swift naked eye couldn't record the speed

[Boxing Commentators - not very clear]
"I don't believe what I'm seeing, I don't believe it"
"Ladies and gentlemen, at this time we have..."
"You'll never quit, no one will ever get it, there's no thing quit..."

[Verse 2 - GZA]
Imagine a rhyme in it's prime, from off the baseline
Skyscraper vertical, support the hang time
Evidence that was left at the scene of the crime trace back to a few from outta group of nine
Who perform well regardless to the price of the tickets
Off or on stage, whatever,
Still kick it, with the footwork of Fredy Adu
It's all new, now the rap commissioners they wanna clone my shoe
With the rose now, and its difficult to climb
With the heat and wind and fallen rocks combined
It's hard to stay alined the course is an obstacle
Within each chamber the force it unstoppable
Lyrical swordsman blaze sharp, I'll cut out your heart
MC's want no part of any type of conflict
Be 'cause when I respond quick, it gets thick
The problem goes beyond sick

[Hook - GZA] x2
There is no escaping once my blade start scraping
My sword indeed make more niggaz bleed
Wanabe MC's is shaken
So swift naked eye couldn't record the speed

[Outro - Vinnie Paz]
Jedi Mind, Wu-Tang
What's the deal baby?
GZA Genius
Stoupe on the track
My man Soop on the boards
Those who dare oppose us shall stand, knee deep in the blood of their children
Is that he who follows the pleasure of Allah
Like him who has made himself deserving the displeasure from Allah
And his abode and hell, and it is an evil destination...
