    Lyrics

    The new wine is dying on the vine
    How much must you age before you're ageless?
    Align yourself with the divine
    Allow your inner sage to burn your rage less
    'Cause I find your testaments of time
    There is no space for time within your mind
    If you're looking for yourself, yourself you'll find
    Through the crystal of your spirit you'll inherit the divine
    You are God, you best believe
    Don't waste your time down on your knees
    It's everybody for themselves
    You are the fire and the cross
    Don't save your soul, it's our loss
    Collective soul, collective well

    The new wine is dying on the vine
    How much must you age before you're ageless?
    Align yourself with the divine
    Allow your inner sage to burn your rage less
    'Cause I find to testaments of time
    There is no space for time within your mind
    If you're looking for yourself, yourself you'll find
    Through the crystal of your spirit you'll inherit the divine
    You are God, you best believe
    Don't waste your time down on your knees
    It's everybody for themselves
    You are the fire and the cross
    Don't save your soul, it's our loss
    Collective soul, collective well

    So do you know how I feel tonight?
    Now can't you see I'm surreal tonight?
    See how I shine, I'm a star, oh yeah
    Now do you know who you are, tonight?

    Now do you know how I feel tonight?
    Now can't you see I'm surreal tonight?
    See how I shine, I'm a star, oh yeah
    Now do you know who you are, tonight?

    I'm that atonement son
    That's like a Bible and gun
    Pea-cocked and ready aimin' steady as a ray of the sun
    My ammunition, intuition, full eclipse of my lung
    Son, you could never guess what planet I'm from
    My emcee name is my birth name, my first name
    Alias is all of us, SAUL of us, the fall of us
    To surely come when we deny it
    Loudest nigga gets quiet
    Prison of pieces of riot
    Sell your soul if you wanna, but that don't mean I'mma buy it
    See I've been conscious of your nonsense
    They imprints have been quiet
    And I ain't gonna lie it
    Be to hard to deny it
    I ain't from your block and never had to deal with your shit
    Never had a glock never kept it real with no bit
    And when I saw a nigga like you, son I practically hit
    'Cause you did what you did and I wasn't the kid
    Don't give a fuck now, I be the first one to playa hate
    The eye of the needle set the record straight
    And I retire late, retire late, retaliate, retaliate
    And I be fishin' on that same star you be wishin' on
    Make you move son, you know the mission's on
    So never question who I am, God knows
    And I know God personally
    In fact, he lets me call him me
    In fact, he lets me call him me

    Never question who I am, God knows
    And I know God personally
    In fact, she lets me call her me
    In fact, she lets me call her me

    So do you know how I feel tonight?
    Now can't you see I'm surreal tonight?
    See how I shine, I'm a star, yeah
    Now do you know who you are, yeah

    Now do you know how I feel tonight?
    Now can't you see I'm surreal tonight?
    See how I shine, I'm a star, yeah
    Now do you know who you are, yeah

    Now do you know how I feel tonight?
    Now can't you see I'm surreal tonight?
    See how I shine, I'm a star, yeah
    Now do you know who you are, yeah

    Now do you know how I feel tonight?
    Now can't you see I'm surreal tonight?
    See how I shine, I'm a star, yeah
    Now do you know who you are, yeah

    I can recite the grass on the hill and memorize the moon
    I know the cloudforms of love by heart
    And have brought tears to the eye of a storm
    My memory banks, vaults of autumn forests and amazon river banks
    And I've screamed them into sunsets that echo in earthquakes
    Shadows have been my spotlight as I monologue the night and dialogue with days
    Soliloquies of wind and breeze applauded by sun rays
    We put language in zoos to observe caged thought
    And tossed peanuts and P-Funk at intellect
    And motherfuckers think these are metaphors
    I speak what I see
    All words and worlds are metaphors of me
    My life was authored by the moon
    Footprints written in soil
    The fountain pen of martian men
    Novelling human toil
    And yes, the soil speaks highly of me
    But earth seeds root me poet-tree
    Now, maybe i'm too serious
    Too little here to matter
    Though I'm riddled with the reason of the sun
    I stand up comet with the audience of lungs
    This body of laughter is it with me or at me?
    Hue more or less though gender's mute
    And the punch line has this lifeline at it's root
    I'm a star this life's the suburbs, I commute

    So do you know how I feel tonight?
    Now can't you see I'm surreal tonight?
    See how I shine I'm a star, yeah
    Now do you know who you are, yeah

    Now do you know how I feel tonight?
    Now can't you see I'm surreal tonight?
    See how I shine, I'm a star, yeah, yeah
    Now do you know who you are, yeah
