Elzhi – EarlyBird Nightowl Lyrics

EarlyBird Nightowl Lyrics By Elzhi

Yeah
Look, I don’t deal with peons
I beat ’em to the punch like I’m Leon Spinks, my ink leaks neon
In this colorless world seen in black and white while lacking sight
You ego trippin’ I hope you packin’ light and back tonight
‘Cause I drag you back to earth and pause it
If you with the shits then you should wear it if the draws fit
I’m still tighter than the claustrophobic in the mosh pit
And bad to the bone is the skeletons in your closet
Sit down before I make change that I’m forced to deposit
Y’all be thinking y’all Nas when y’all really Pras with the Fugees
It’s bumpin in the Mitsubishi while we eatin sushi, hey hey hey
Try to diss the crew but we don’t play play, no vacay
Or recess, not even where they surfboard and where they ski less
Or where the palm tree rest
I’m tryna make this paper not the paper in the free press
My moral compass accomplished more than the GPS inside a Prius or Ferrari
I’m sorry that y’all n****s can’t bar me to death, I’d rather bar you to life
And watch you die inside a mental prison, my eagle vision with lion pride
Leave decisions to heal and kill like incisions with cyanide
I am tied to the greatest who grind ’til the crack of dawn
Who’s up the latest, big fish in small ponds you haters never ate us
Save right and past the point of tired to keep you inspired
Squeezin’ ’til you fired and shoot for what you desired

Up when the birds chirpin’
Rollin’ herbs, workin’
On the illest master plan ’cause I don’t sleep
Up all night when I write that
Snorted white that could’ve shortened hype on the gold peak
I’m the early bird
And I’m the night owl
Who’s next to right now
They might smile but them dirty looks say they quite foul
You never get over ownin’ men that don’t sleep
That close deep for all you wolves wearin’ coats by adult sheep

Look
I’ve been workin’ day and night ’til the darkness is pierced by a ray of light
Layin’ tight verses that leave the surface I ain’t afraid of heights
Was always held high in regard for every card I stacked up to build a house with the yard
And cheated death like repeated breath blown inside of lungs creatin’ oxygen
Hook you up and blew your socks again up out your moccasins I’m
Way tubular, brain on Jupiter so if I
Stoop to your level who’s stupider
On this mic you wish you were Jordan it drive you batty it’s Commissioner Gordon
I won all the smoke as if it came out of switch or in Portland
I bet you felt that in your gut like you twistin’ your sword in your stomach ’til you pulled it out and you missin’ a organ
One day you’ll plot to sabotage me ’cause you not as paid, draped in the hottest suede, and got a Scottish maid to grab your laundry
I dripped the floor and winter plates was on the suburban in the hood now I’m on a foreign in estates
Once for certain and twice evident
Scared money don’t make none, you’ll die hesitant
Precise measurements what took out the reapin’ the benefits of what I sowed up
‘Cause every line is water turned to wine in the gold cup during the last supper
When this drop’ll make you crash bumpers
Like overpass jumpers who clash uppers with they downers
Whether the founders, locals, or out-of-towners
Y’all in bad shape if y’all square up with us and don’t get from around us

Up when the birds chirpin’
Rollin’ herbs, workin’
On the illest master plan ’cause I don’t sleep
Up all night when I write that
Snorted white that could’ve shortened hype on the gold peak
I’m the early bird
And I’m the night owl
Who’s next to right now
They might smile but them dirty looks say they quite foul
You never get over ownin’ men that don’t sleep
That close deep for all you wolves wearin’ coats by adult sheep

That was gladiator shit
Real UFC shit, emcee shit
They take a muthafuckin real n****
To tell another muthafuckin real n**** to step his game up lyrically for real
Fire shit n****
Who next?
Just Tyson’d that shit
N**** punch him out here right now
