 Jay Electronica - The Pledge (Eternal Sunshine) .mp3 - 8.3 Mb

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Brionon the soundtrack.
This track is a musical movie. I'll let Jay's lyrics speak for itself. If this is your first time hearing this - sit back and enjoy.

Artist: Jay Electronica
Song: The Pledge (Eternal Sunshine)

Part I - Eternal Sunshine
Part II - Paper Thin
Part III - Voodoo Man
Part VI - FYI


Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind


She said she never fell in love with a superman
Christian, Muslim, Protestant, Lutheran,
I told her that being a mortal is the portal to the true nature of growth; the Christ like Buddha man
That's why I never spit the traditional garbage of a night f!ght, bright lights, white ice to the fans
The radio is just a stereo, like the house aint a home, and a chair is just a chair, ask Luther Van
Go to work; go to church let your dreams die
Bowtie, final call, and a bean pie
yarmulke for Hanukah, wish list for Christmas
This is the jist of the life that we lead, why?
So you can fit in, with the close minded in the sit-ins, and get clotheslined in the ed-end
I could care less about a plaque and Bidd-enz or get Punked on TV by my frid-ends
Don't get a n*gga wrong, I get tempted by the rewards that all come along with making n*gga songs
But what does it mean if I'm a Muslim and you a Jew and because of that alone we don't get along
And when you talk like this, and try to walk like this the radio stations'll never put a n*gga on
Just Mims, just Fifty, just Wayne, just Jeezy, Dem Franchize Boyz, and Jimmy Jones
f**k that, f**k rap this God-hop,
King-dom mu-sic for the hard rocks
Imma spit it till T-R-L get it and Hot ninety-seven hit the n*gga with a bomb drop
Ask Flex, ask Slay, ask Who Kidd
Just blaze said Jay is the new kid
I took Eternal Sunshine and I looped it
No drums no hook just new s**t

Paper Thin

the handling of a heart's
a very delicate art
cuz its paper thin
when irrelevant thought
that started out as a spark
could be a poisonous dart
that leaves a permenent mark
thats ice cold in the day and burns in the dark
and makes you never wanna see her face again
tee-hee what a place im in
lead me to the sta-tio-n
a one way ticket, dont look back
one cold tear that frozen crack
a whole lotta pain im holdin back
sheriff said f that roll the sack
i said if my skull was cracked
and blood ran out to the culdesac
that could not match me where im at
my memorys flash me there and back
yup there goes me right there in black
holdin hands not starin back
she starts cryin i start denying that its my fault
and im aware of that
man in hindsight signs be glarin back
wheres the map
to show you where your at
i can hear the crowd yelling i can smell the tire smoke
i can hear the starter pistol wheres the track
ring no answer came home late
jane told d*ck she had a date
but they was just chillin
and at that moment the right brain says to the left just k!ll em
make the headlines make the front page wild out in the court house man thrill em
theyll say the boy dead wrong but i feel em

Voodooman

Voodooman, chickenbone chickenbone
I can make a thunderstorm from a light rain
My ears start ringing
My nose get bloody
I feel a lil' bit of pressure on my right brain
Intermission transmission
Put me in submission
Glistening trapped in the light prison whistling
the christ told me come closer to the light man
I went blind woke up in front of a mic stand

Voodoo man, tap dancing in the French Quarter
Walking on water with a scroll in my hand
The bluerprints for disc shaped like a vessel
that was chiseled out of metal off the coast of Japan
Fasting on the top of a mountain I went to postland
Saw a shiny object floating out of the ocean
I'm sort of like a postman
You can get the message if you want to understand
From the rap slumber man

Voodoman, civilised and savage
Criticize the parish
Spreading false doctrine
terrorize the cleric
for carrying on nonsense
specialised lies to paralyse the conscience
voodoman
chit chatter
abracadabra
Spitting out matter
While i'm s**tting out data
mmm, chew em up s**tting out rappers
Sipping Pelegrino while i'm giving out matches
Set yourself on fire
Let the wisdom of Elijah
purify ya take a n*gga higher
Sold your soul to the high-est buyer
Now you're on the wire
talking about two-foot tires
Saying you sell crack
clapping at cats with macs
but you a liar
pants on fire
Same old rugged cross
different crucified messiah


FYI

while you was blowin X amount of dollars on a bracelet
the sovereign nation of france was openin they files on the UFO phenomenon i-e spaceships
its just the facts jack may as well face it
every rhyme i write the seal get cracked in the chapter of revalations
a atom get cracked in the blackness of meditation
mysterious s**t
call me Jay Dogon im on some serious/sirius s**t
scholars wonder why do he bust
allah blessed me with a midasy touch
everything i lay the hands turn to ethopian gold shiny and buffed
i got a firm understandin on the minus and plus
so i aint got time to argue with a rapper bout how he aint got rhymes
thats f**kin with mines
im trying to k!ll lucifer, so if i have to brake
cuz a rapper in my face
tellin me that he the great
you can bet a shiny nickle ill blast his motherf**kin a.ss way past jupiter
you couldnt be stupider
f**kin with the nuc-l-ear
mayan
aztec lion
asiatic black man from zion
quetzalcotl supreme
lettin off steam
dimethyltriptamine make a man dream
but yall would much rather hear me rappin bout trash
the size of erykahs a.ss blunts and cash
we need savin
mines are consumed with swine we need bathin

yeah act 2 was..

are you watching
departure
not a disturbance
a prayer for michael vick & t.i.
the levees broke
extra,extra



and some other songs that got scrapped...this is the o.g. act 2 at least..the one that should have come out 2 years ago.....the s**t that's about to come out basically is act 3...even if he's labeling it act 2....it's completely different from the first act 2...
