lyrics

SEA DAWG

Mess with me, yer life will be shortly departing
I’ve killed more people you love
than george RR martin
I’m like a surgeon’s hand
very steady with power
and every day i’m blood soaked for at least 8 hours
you’ve never seen such high seas villainy
I be sacking forts with unprecedented brilliancy
feel no sympathy
I give no clemency
my cannons fire so bright that even those in heaven see

Make way for the gods of the sea
the gods of the mic every day every night
gods of the rhyme
gods of the waves
stand in our way and you cannot be saved
Make way for the gods of the sea
the gods of the mic every day every night
gods of the rhyme
gods of waves
stand in our way and you cannot be saved

I capture enemies with such little effort
my words bring em down, cause they be so clever
I keep em in the brig and take i their treasure
call me frank herbert cause
I drop em off on a desert
island, i like diamonds
finding them across the world
wherever they be hiding
hittin every syllable in every verse with perfect timing
now lets hear from my cohort poseidon.

POSEIDON:

I arise! From the waves like a giant
Think you wanna battle? Well, I hope you try it
Ask the Trojans, Athenians, King Minos
Ajax, and Odysseus who they fear most

I'm the Earth-Shaker, the horse tamer, game-changer
I'm no stranger to great danger
You say your rhymes are like cannons? I say bring 'em
Let it be known this will always be Neptune's Kingdom

Nerites! Hitch my chariot to the hippocampus
Fetch me a snack—a great white or a grampus
Hoist the canvas on my fleet of triremes
Let's show these barbarians I'm as mean as I seem

As I leave Atlantis in search of gemstones
and pearls and gold to adorn my throne, I hear the tones
of the poems Homer wrote long ago, but I’ll be singing new songs
over your sunken bones

CHORUS

I used to hang out on Mount Olympus
with Zeus and Ares and all those wimps; us
gods have gotten just a wee bit slack
Humans conquered the world, now I'm taking it back

I attack with my lyrical trident
In avatar form I can be quite strident
They say divine powers come from those who believe
Well, I believe in myself and that's all I need

SEA DAWG

Me crew has always been known to be the deadliest squad
and now on the ships roster a legit ancient god
if the land turns against us, we turn it into a pyre
cause those who control the sea command the world entire
