lyrics

Levitated praying like a flying lotus
meditiated lotus sutra nam yo ho renge kyo
til im in Kyoto laughin
til then im a spastic with a pen and a napkin (huh)
race til I warp space and time
get more universal with every line
spit my nickels and dimes til I get two cents
and I get to NY – heads askin who’s him
sensei said “fight harder” that’s what I did
looked around left many an mc dead
spears pierce many an mc head
severed and lined up in front of my front yard

levitated praying like a flying lotus
meditated lotus sutra nam yoho renge kyo (repetition)

settled back in back in New Orleans
drive an all blue 9 5 ford taurus
getting way too loud for you to ignore us
treating women like horus not whores
but the sun god let em shine while I pivot and roll on my orbit
(ha) so thorough from the parish to the boroughs
latin nigga slicing my name in your brain – zorro
dip off lay back in the dark – sip corona
and I smoke trees with my patnas
and I’m gonna be gone til mañana
and I plead the fifth your honor
honestly don’t give a fuck about your policy
give us all the show money it’s a robbery
stick up similes got your hands up high

levitated praying like a flying lotus
meditated lotus sutra nam yoho renge kyo (repetition)

"YUGEN is a New Orleans-based sextet that combines the poetic energy of hip-hop, improvisatory ruckus jazz, and progressive pulses of electronic music into a fluid live aesthetic that drips into your ear hot and heavy and blooms in your brain in an organic slew of silky pastel and gritty neon. "
