Let me tell you about a game I played
when I bid goodbye
with no plan of where to reside
when i decide to kill the threat
with no armour to protect my side

the best àyàn beat the best bàtá beat
deep down my inner mind

Yet, I took a step forward
but the beat did not lead my step
and the next step is covert

my heart rejoiced and skipped a beat
over that undecisive decision
at the first glance
at the sight of such an epitome of perfection
i know i can rest my mind

Here is my home; the flesh whisper

Lay that on your heart

for those seized in a thought

For those choice is seized
