[Intro: Yasiin Bey]
If I say surely the darkness shall fall on me
Even the night shall be light about me
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from you
But the night shines as the day
The darkness and the light are both alike unto you, amen
Thou preparest the table before me in the presence of mine enemies
Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runeth over, amen

[Verse 1: Yasiin Bey]
Dual pedigree, horsepower
Valiant, the schema, Buffalo Solider hour
Black hand, blue dawn in the shadow lands
Dove cry, high noon, make the shadows dance
Preacher man, say a prayer, bless the caravan
Bandolero plans and jackals in the the valley, pans
Mind set on the treasures in the talisman
Hand set on the Holy Book and battleaxe
Sun, moon and stars, build a map
Where ya at? Frontier…
Expansion exodus, run…
Expansion exodus, run…

They die by dawn
They die by dawn
They die by dawn
They die by dawn
Exodus expansion
They die by dawn
They die by dawn
They die by dawn
They die by dawn
Expansion Exodus

[Verse 2: Jay Electronica]
My grandmother told me never, ever go to sleep in the church house
Wear a shirt and a tie to the courthouse
Look the judge in the eye like a man
Not a thug, not a lamb, not a slave or a church mouse
You a king, you a god, you a holy L
Get out this hole and give these ma’fuckas holy Hell
So, over time I’ve perfected my rhymes, and
That’s why I shine like I climbed out the Holy Grail
Mainstream dropout, White Widow, cottonmouth
Out in Queens park with a crew of dirty stop-outs
London bridge is falling down
The bullets licking shots on the parliament grounds
And we battle every scoundrel, every henchman, every hound
Get lassoed by the sound, ran across the desert then shackled to the mount

[Hook x2]
