A day to God is a thousand years,
Men walk around with a thousand fears.
The true joy of love brings a thousand tears,
In the world of desire, there’s a thousand snares.

Cancun…catch me in the room, eatin’ grouper.
Niggas is decaf, I stick ‘em for the C.R.E.A.M.
Ghostface Killah (Wu-Tang Clan) • “Food” • 2015
To increase your life line, strengthen your heart.
Eat fish…that brain food will get you smart.
Yoga…deep meditational tactics,
You no good? Then just practice, cause practice makes perfect.
Stop burying your lies, and bring the truth to the surface.
Ghostface Killah, “Food,” from BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah’s Sour Soul, 2015

Well I’m a sire, I set the microphone on fire,
Rap styles vary…and carry like Mariah.

I bomb atomically, Socrates’ philosophies and hypotheses
Can’t define how I be dropping these mockeries.
Lyrically perform armed robbery,
Flee with the lottery, possibly they spotted me…
– Inspectah Deck, “Triumph,” from Wu-Tang Clan’s Wu-Tang Forever, 1997
They say the taste of revenge is sweet.
Well, let me see…
Prepare the table for a feast, take a seat, now let’s eat.
You can see the weakness of a man right through his iris.
Make peace not war, make babies some more, Keep a smile when you travel from shore to shore.
It was the beauty that caught me and held my soul hostage…
Remember those days? Had you smellin’ my boxers.
Complainin’ to my lawyer how this rookie tried to frisk me…
Jealous of my jeep, I gave his badge to the chief,
And got his ass directin’ traffic in the heat for a week.
Feeling mad hostile, wearing Aéropostale,
Flowing like Christ when I speaks the gospel.
