Power of words


Lines define what’s in someone’s mind
Expressing views and thoughts
That can be true or false
Whether fact or fantasy
They’ll probably turn sloppy when there’s lack of energy
Write what u choose like an act of anarchy
Magically, make a stranger turn fan of me
Bless souls like a sanctity
On the darker side of things it turns friends into enemies
God said let there be these entities
Blessed with speech and reason
They can never beat the meaning, only give it
See here, if it wasn’t for the first the latter wouldn’t exist
Words can do to the heart what knives do to the wrist
Inflict pain cause tears u know the usual shit
Convict a man to death
Write the verdict on his chest
Declare eternal love by simply saying yes
Get a lawyer to defend yourself from other attacks
Or handle the guy
In a one on one battle fight
Cause of beautiful words
Here’s a chance u might
Really understand my fat band tonight
Be rude and polite
The only fuckin reason why mc’s grab the mic
Make up your excuse for a deed not liked
Give meaning to silence
Whenever used wrong they keep feeding the violence
Show a way to people who be seeking for guidance
I’m personally fond of it
Make and break promises
Opportunity for college kids
The bible is why religious freaks think god exists
And a way to do politics
Send soldiers to war
Order to kill em
Pass it to the next
Tell stories to children
Big bad wolf sad and bewildered
Believe or criticize anything can be filtered
So many feelings comfort and distress
Wanna scream out like a kid with incest
Even if misread words can impress
Feel deceived cause ain’t happened shit yet
Encourage your team with the power of words
Scream penalty when a foul occurs
U have to calm down but you shout a curse
All this fuss in the world about a verb
Finding salvation message in a bottle
Or find it by just following your motto
Fill in numbers on a piece of paper for the lotto
Sign a contract to buy a condo
Make a speech twist history
Use it to get rid of all this bigotry
Even if they don’t believe u initially
Or just write a letter to your relatives in Italy
It takes a second
To turn something precious in the present
To myth or a legend
Some are rare like water in a desert
Others are common like bikes in Holland
Manipulate words without a shred of proof
Make people addictive to the truth
Then twist it shift it
To something seeming almost realistic
Elpo’s words make it sound so simplistic.
