​Effortless

This song is by Mars Ill and appears on the album Pro*Pain (2006).

(Manchild)
I was born at the break of dawn, raised by the breakbeat
Breaking all the rules set in place to try to break me
Breaker, breaker, check one-two seven-oh-eight-three
Shake up the system on Peachtree and 8th Street
Down the block from don't stop, barkin' at you
Talk is cheap, I invested in speech to raise the market value
Danger's all around the world, same song
So I light a fire with any forty acres that I'm placed on
Stay strong in the eyes of adversity
Play on through the heat wave and rise as the mercury
Applied to the you and I, verse to ear right now
Burn style, then return with a slight smile
Miles past the open season and the warning shots
I know the reason I was born to rock
God pumping in my veins, love encoded in my name
And I'm the only soul who can conquer this terrain

Navigate the treacherous, make it seem effortless
Run like the wind, then fly like a Pegasus
And where you at? I'm right here living it
Telling everybody don't stop until it finishes
And where you at? I'm right here giving it
All that I got because life is never limited
Looks like a short walk, actually an exodus
Navigate the treacherous and make it seem effortless

(x-144)
I walk on this plain to sustain love's reign
Not afraid to go against the wind or winds change
Pray as a hustler, let the love settle
It's a shame our adversaries break skin or mettle
I'm 'a pursue the goal until the steam breaks the kettle apart
To start the search for excellence within experience
Leave trails of crumbs until we shed food for thought
Then walk as an exodus and pass it to a million
Accidents turn to tragedies in search for fear
Seven seas were drawn by the drops of seven tears
Misery turns to sadness, madness becomes clear
Doubt is no longer an issue amongst our peers
Confidence is not mistaken for ego stare
Hip-hoppers no longer affected by what they wear
Nine-to-five slaves are free from what they bear
Grace is no longer susceptible 'cause no one cares
Water is now free of me percent is seventy
Hell is no longer on earth because the mind is heavenly
Focus on the purpose to modify what's not guaranteed
And move fast than the slower that decorated by treachery

Navigate the treacherous, make it seem effortless
Run like the wind, then fly like a Pegasus
And where you at? I'm right here living it
Telling everybody don't stop until it finishes
And where you at? I'm right here giving it
All that I got because life is never limited
Looks like a short walk, actually an exodus
Navigate the treacherous and make it seem effortless

(Manchild)
Mountain to a mole hill, river to a stream
Make the complex simple, turn an army to a team
By any means seems like it's your only option
And a riot now resembles nothing better than a mosh pit
Oceans a puddle and a hurricane is rain
Obvious is subtle and complicated is plain
Debate is conversation and wild things are tamed
Torture's only pain and change stays the same
Terrorism, revolution, slavery, and restitution
Gotta give it all to break it up and get it moving
Dark is transparent so we slice it with a flashlight
X'n out your circle, blow the spot like a bagpipe
Living the fast life, project slow motion
Just so you can get in which direction that I'm going
It's the common denominator, love child moderator
Got a lot to say to all of y'all but I'ma stop till later

Navigate the treacherous, make it seem effortless
Run like the wind, then fly like a Pegasus
And where you at? I'm right here living it
Telling everybody don't stop until it finishes
And where you at? I'm right here giving it
All that I got because life is never limited
Looks like a short walk, actually an exodus
Navigate the treacherous and make it seem effortless
