about

Track 12 off the album is one of the first bangers recorded as T-N-T and fits in very nicely with the flow of the album. We released it as an introduction back around Christmas of 2007, meshing tales of time travel and perspective with Jacob Marley used as a metaphor, over a sich Bone Pesci beat.

JACOB MARLEY


THUN

VERSE 1

JACOB!!! MARLEY!!! YO!!!

It was the night before last, when my soul broke out of its cast
It hovered looking back, remembering the past
Another life in a different world moving fast
the first chapter of the second book in its 3rd draft
Comcast through portals, black holes and wormholes
I’m in a spaceship with the ghost of Andy Warhol
Carnegie artist, silver prince behind the pop starlets
I sold ink at auctions, visualize the power of my portrait
Stand in a room full of snitches, so they can point out the culprit
Battles of the century, my art possessed inside of memories
Climaxed with a starving centipedes, who built me a fortress to remember me
My data is scribbled in boxes hidden beneath the streets a sarcophagus
like mummies in pyramids knowing I’m still royalty
Wake up and smell the coffee, I see my history unfold like the code of davinci

CHORUS TYRONE

I fell asleep in the wake of my last breath
I realized that in this life there is nothing left
Angels circled my bed with heavy chains around necks
The Jacob Marley journeys to the past secrets are kept

CHORUS THUN

I fell asleep in the wake of my last breath
I realized that in this life there is nothing left
Angels circled my bed with heavy chains around necks
The Jacob Marley journeys to the past secrets are kept

TYRONE

VERSE 2

I hate this forsaken place, it makes me curse and blaspheme
Then a fallen angel, slipped past the attention of Constantine
At first it seemed, not that evil when it came to see me
Then it felt as if I was pulled out of my anatomy
This entity took me on some sort of a journey
To where men are batteries, not longer the dominate species
Directions southeast, over frozen fields of corn ahead in time
Where men from my day and age are long gone
I saw dawn, saw two legged things with horns
Saw cyborgs in some sort of a Neanderthal form
This Babylon is wrong, that’s what this demon yelled
It will get worse then hell, these are not the works of Gabriel
I was astonished, when it took me across continents
I seen metal pyramids and immortals with lizard necks
Too many places, with high levels of radiation
Conclusion, were moving through corridors of illusions

CHORUS THUN

I fell asleep in the wake of my last breath
I realized that in this life there is nothing left
Angels circled my bed with heavy chains around necks
The Jacob Marley journeys to the past secrets are kept

CHORUS TYRONE

I fell asleep in the wake of my last breath
I realized that in this life there is nothing left
Angels circled my bed with heavy chains around necks
The Jacob Marley journeys to the past secrets are kept

THUN & TYRONE

VERSE 3

It was after my travels, that I woke up kicking and screaming
I opened my eyes seeing what appeared to be a demon
Confronted with life, I just got back from sightseeing
Noticed I wasn’t alone, camera flashes spots beaming
A futuristic being appeared in front of me gleaming
Telling me tales of a new world of heathens
He spoke heavy with the voice of a soldier sharing his feelings

Was this a near death experience, I pinched my limbs
To find out if I’m ghost or still amongst the living
That’s when I saw a bright light, flicker in the distance
Saw the shadow of a character, I approached with resistance
Tensed up from not making sense back in the present
I shook the hand of a man from the past tense
Sharing stories of our voyages, fearing for our culture
Signs divine life, past, present and future

CHORUS THUN & TYRONE (2X)

I fell asleep in the wake of my last breath
I realized that in this life there is nothing left
Angels circled my bed with heavy chains around necks
The Jacob Marley journeys to the past secrets are kept
