Testo #Cake – Shabazz Palaces
I’m having my cake and I’m eating cake
I’m having my cake and I’m eating cake
I’m having my cake and I’m eating cake
I’m having my cake and I’m eating cake
I’m having my cake and I’m eating cake

Lost inside a whirlwind
Eating cake
Sending kids of girlfriends
Eating cake
When I lay back in my bed cool
Eating cake
She set my mood, I push back the ropes
Eating cake
And when I see no whispers in our friends’ ear
Eating cake
His lust is just so sincere
Eating cake
Got the feeling she be right out
Eating cake
As the prevailer of the tight song
Eating cake
In Brasilia, off the balcony
Eating cake
It’s spending, the falconer
Eating cake
Lord, forgive me all these pleasures
Eating cake
He said, my son, just do what thy are
Eating cake
Will I ever have a clear mind while
Eating cake
Simple pleasures equal a fine
Eating cake
No matter, gold mine
Eating cake
Reverend days in mind
Eating cake
I bet this is always on my mind
Eating cake
I’m having my cake and I’m eating cake

Why rise the sun and not dance in its light
Make the gods laugh at such questions with the light
And inside, inside

I’m always late up high on pure blends
Eating cake
Trying to bend me is a dead end
Eating cake
Times I rock it as a sorcerer
Eating cake
They gonna always slice my portion, bro
Eating cake
Since they gunned me to a smirk
Eating cake
I get to dreaming, pain, hurt
Eating cake
I drew it up and put it in a tray
Eating cake
I was filthy playing low
Eating cake
To all my hustles good as a tsar
Eating cake
Secret meetings in the stratosphere
Eating cake

Let’s feel in all the clear and let it leave
The gift, walk, let it waver
Why not save the flavor

Early, [..]Alabam, Dallas, Atlanta, O Town
[..] Seattle, Neptune [..] Congo Rio Brazil Paris
