Original video
Yo Serj, pass me that lighter
Yeah... yeah, yeah!

Flowers, smiling through the battlefield!

The break is over man, I'm back with the ink pen
Like Ali Bomaye okay I'm on my second wind
Used to roll dice when the luck was on my side, man
Four-five-six, walked away with a grand man

Seen many blocks turn to The Twilight Zone
D.A. on the case like Sherlock Holmes
My old high school sweetheart started sniffin' a bone
For the right bag she deep throat, deeper than a baritone

I caught you off guard, this verse is unexpected, check it
Like when I rhymed on Big Pun's record, check it
I got a swagger that cut any rapper mind over matter
Lyrical dagger like alcohol I'm bad for your liver

Quiver, shiver body temperature get found in Hudson River
Deliver a message to your miss you won't be comin' over
And if you on the street tonight, see that ReFugee logo
We beam around the world like satellite

It's them hip-hop boys, turn your radio down
It's the rock 'n roll boys, turn your radio down
It's them reggae boys, turn your radio down
Neighbors mind your business

It's a riot again, the world is getting nervous
So we travel again! Main journey's the unconscious
It's a riot again, the world is getting nervous
And so we travel again! Main journey's the unconscious

Come rock with me
I got the music on the block with me
Come chill on the spot with me
And just laugh in spree

Yeah you're right, we got enough for everyone
So get all your friends and your families and come along
Move to the beat that's all we do we got Jerusalem
Everyday we offer praises like King Solomon

Ain't gon' hurt ye, don't be nervous
I'm your guardian angel, know you purpose
And if I look at you low, if I should make it
Believe me, I leave you, show you how to make it

Hung up high, in the M-I
Double-S-I, S-S-I
P-P-I, three-piece tie
Wanna see me die so the heavens they cry

It's them hip-hop boys, turn your radio down
It's the rock 'n roll boys, turn your radio down
It's them reggae boys, turn your radio down
Neighbors mind your business

It's a riot, riot
Riot, riot
From the train to the plane, security check
From the bridge to the tunnel, security check

It's a riot again, the world is getting nervous
So we travel again! Main journey's the unconscious
It's a riot again, the world is getting nervous
And so we travel again! Main journey's the unconscious

I was down in Texas; drivin' reckless
Police stop me, aks me for my license (oh yeah)
Registration so I played him some Elvis
He let me go, then I lit off the chalice

I said if things don't change
We headed for the Armageddon
And the great dragon with seven head, ten horns
At the Armageddon
Listen to the choir children

The matterings of all matter
Masters and their extended batters
Internet intelligence for investments for the natural world
Their divestments, truth is knowledge
Although bipolar if it's attainment is equitable

Man's mirrors face the flesh but hide the spirit
in opposite worlds; vision can only be attained universally
Lamps of varied sizes and shapes carrying different shades
All having the propensity to illuminate

Let's ruminate on realization that the means is the end
The Earth's water is mirroring the stream-of-consciousness
The dead being reborn
As flowers smiling through the battlefields

It's them hip-hop boys, turn your radio down
It's the rock 'n roll boys, turn your radio down
(Flowers, smiling through the battlefield!)

It's a riot again, the world is getting nervous
So we travel again, main journey's the unconscious (oh)
It's a riot again, the world is getting nervous
And so we travel again, main journey's the unconscious (oh)

It's a riot again, the world is getting nervous
So we travel again, main journey's the unconscious (oh)
It's a riot again, the world is getting nervous
And so we travel again, main journey's the unconscious (oh)
