I'm a manchild born in the promised land
Captain of my destiny, guidin my faith through the turbulence of life
See, in order to be who you are, you've got to know who you are
In order to get to where you want to go,
you've got to know from where you came
Say, it was Malcolm X who said,
"A man who doesn't have nothin to stand up for
will fall for any god damn thing!"

Verse 1[Fuck The Police]

All praise to God son, watch me drop the science
I study quickly, swiftly, son of man paves the road to Zion's
Gold, its cold, the corner is leaking with cane
Sky is filled with smoke from bullets hittin domes and frames
Dopes its name, the curse of my birthplace
I struggled as a teen, my girls puss' the worst place
Contaminated, quarantine the projects for Christ's sake
My heists late, I hate it im flippin flakes for high stakes
Im in the mid' of a war, when have i been drafted?
I pray to the Lord, yet the devil's attractive!
They say I'm crazy is what you made me, I'm wild & young
Im kickin knowledge, spittin garbage.. my childhoods done
Yo Son of Man wheres the promised land? I'm exhausted
My eyelids are heavy, my own reason I lost it
Im away in the SOUTH from heaven, maybe they hanged her
I aint surprised still, behind my smile hides my anger

Hook

Running these streets can be so... trying these trying times...
Manchild in the promised land, who of you will understand?
Running these streets can be so... trying these trying times...
Manchild in the promised land, hey-ay...

Verse 2 [The Flash of Life]

Sometimes i just need to close my eyes,so once again i could see a sunrise
only thing i can hear is man cries,what should i do when the hope dies?
Can i get an advice?is someone that wise?hah no replies
only lies,can i trust u,cuz if u betray me it wont be a suprise
to stay alive trough the day here,gess its the biggest prize
i can get,im a manchild in a promised land,with no water only sand
its so hard to stand on my feet,my love,life and pain,can u understand
the rules of the game,but for u its all the same,u dont see it trough your window frame
i took all the blame for that im breathin but i love my life,if u dont than thats a shame
I fallow my dream,never give up going to the bottom line till i can get the C.R.E.A.M
U could call me an adrenalin addict,cuz even passing the streat here its exreme
I want to scream but nobody will hear me,16 year old and im on my own
always alone,just like a dog searchin for a bone,this must be sierra leone
but here theres no bloody stone,u could call us the twilight zone
the reason for death is uknown,theyll just tell u life goes on
im just a pawn ready for the next move,living just to see the sun at dawn

Bottomline, real people do real things
Play your position...

You see, its like this
You've got to plan your work and work your plan
Cuz seein who fails the plan, plans the fail
Execute your strategy and seize your goal
Cuz see, persistance overcomes resistance
Peace

All praise to God son, watch me drop the science
I study quickly, swiftly, son of man paves the road to Zion's
Gold, its cold, the corner is leaking with cane
Sky is filled with smoke from bullets hittin domes and frames
Dopes its name, the curse of my birthplace
I struggled as a teen, my girls puss' the worst place
How so? I don't see how this fits.
Contaminated, quarantine the projects for Christ's sake
My heists late, I hate it im flippin flakes for high stakes
Im in the mid' of a war, when have i been drafted?

Very Good two lines there. Maybe my favroite of the verse.
Yo Son of Man wheres the promised land? I'm exhausted
My eyelids are heavy, my own reason I lost it
Im away in the SOUTH from heaven, maybe they hanged her
I aint surprised still, behind my smile hides my anger
Overall well thought out verse. I understood everything except the above question whose(yes personification) significance is eradicated by the total aura given off of the verse. Maybe a bad metaphor, let me try again. The verse was sick. That one line doesn't even matter when you study the verse as a whole, fuck a bar for bar, this is a total mastery of concept. I fell in love.

Love the first and 3rd line. Love how they are the same? Yeah me to How Ironic. The message is clear, clean cut. Not bullshit and straight to the point as the hook should be.
Verse 2 [The Flash of Life]

Sometimes i just need to close my eyes,so once again i could see a sunrise
only thing i can hear is man cries,what should i do when the hope dies?
Can i get an advice?is someone that wise?hah no replies
Wow. This is the...undoubtedly realest shit I have ever seen from you Flash. Not to downplay any of your other work, This just stands out and says, "Yeah Hostile, you know you like what I wrote so admit it."
only lies,can i trust u,cuz if u betray me it wont be a suprise
to stay alive trough the day here,gess its the biggest prize
Sweet. Liking the verse so far.
i can get,im a manchild in a promised land,with no water only sand
its so hard to stand on my feet,my love,life and pain,can u understand
the rules of the game,but for u its all the same,u dont see it trough your window frame
i took all the blame for that im breathin but i love my life,if u dont than thats a shame
I fallow my dream,never give up going to the bottom line till i can get the C.R.E.A.M
U could call me an adrenalin addict,cuz even passing the streat here its exreme
I want to scream but nobody will hear me,16 year old and im on my own
Again. I can't even think of a positive adjetive to use. One that isn't always used anyways. Hope u get the picture
always alone,just like a dog searchin for a bone,this must be sierra leone
but here theres no bloody stone,u could call us the twilight zone
the reason for death is uknown,theyll just tell u life goes on
im just a pawn ready for the next move,living just to see the sun at dawn
Flash. Who wrote this!?? You stepped your game up ten fold here. Never have I seen anything so....(Damn I hate not having the right words.) Wow is all I can say.

I'll answer your question Hostile, but now that i re-read my verse, i should've actually wrote it in another way, i understood what I meant but i wrote it too fast in a way that makes the line seem to not match.

dopes its name, the curse of my birthplace
my girls puss' (pussy) the worst place
contamined, quarantine the projects for christ sake

like a lot of people doing drugs in the projects, heroin injection through dirty needles could lead ya to aids. hence why "my girls" pussy was the worst place cause shes *contaminated*, and i struggled as a teen cause i knew i couldnt fuck her, but i couldnt leave her cause she needed me, yet i needed sexual relief too.
