Jay Electronica - Annakin's Prayer Lyrics

Look at this bitch smilin in a nigga face I hate her
I can drill a hole at the earths equator
Fill it with dynamite and make another moon a craters
See ya later
She ain't know, that innocent shit with obi-wan behind the jedi back
Can turn anakin to vader
Shit your lack of faith in the force is disturbing
And if it wasn't jack daniels and parliament lights it woulda been murder
My eyes is red like ketchup
Tired of playin catch up
Laying on the floor starin at the dresser
Got on my knees and prayed til they bleed
Dear god, I'm a sick motherfucker
I even fool myself, I'm a slick motherfucker
I'm sick of the scandalous livin
I don't think even I'm equipped for a higher standard of livin
But if you give him one more chance and forgive him
Hell push that negative gene into oblivion
Heres what I'll do
Put you in this basket
And float you down to mississippi
Twenty miles from the bayou
Heres grace heres sty-le
Have faith cause I'm a try you
My mama introduced me to the scripture
The channel four news introduced me to the shit that produced hitler
I was a young lad, three stooges superman batman and riddler
Moonwalk, windmill, freeze for the picture
My grandma taught me courage
She told me never let the grizzly bears eat your porridge
Or you'll just be a carcuss dying slowly in the forest
I could never thank her for it
But I can slay a devil when I see one
Steady practice mastery of self so not to be one
Life is like a rerun
Season after season
Bums on the train bums (bombs) from the plane
Of disgruntled citizen being trialed for treason...

    [Verse - Jay Electronica]
    Look at this [bitch] smilin' in a nigga face I hate her
    I can drill a hole at the Earth's equator
    Fill it with dynamite and make another Moon with craters
    See you later
    She ain't know, that innocent shit with Obi-Wan
    Behind a Jedi back can turn Anakin to Vader, [bitch]
    Your lack of faith in the Force is disturbin'
    And if it wasn't Jack Daniels and Parliament
    Lights it would have been murder
    My eyes is red like ketchup
    Tired of playin' catch up
    Layin' on the floor starin' at the dresser
    Got on my knees and prayed 'till they bleed
    Dear God, I'm a sick motherfucker
    I even fooled myself I'm a slick motherfucker
    I'm sick of the scandulous livin'
    I don't think I'm even equipped for a higher standard of livin'
    But if you give him one more chance and forgive him
    He'll push that negative gene into oblivion
    Here's what I'll do:
    Put you in this basket and float you down the Mississippi
    Twenty miles from the Bayou
    Here's grace, here's style
    Have faith cause I'mma try you
    My momma introduced me to the scripture
    The channel 4 news introduced me to that shit that produced Hitler
    I was a young lad: Three Stooges, Superman, Batman, The Riddler
    Moonwalk, Windmill, Freeze for the picture
    My grandma taught me courage
    She told me never let the grizzly bears eat your porridge
    Or you'll just be a carcass dying slowly in the forest
    I could never thank her for it
    But I can slay a devil when I see one
    Steady practice mastery of self so not to be one
    Life is like a re-run, season after season
    Bombs on the train, bombs from the plane
    Of disgruntled citizens bein' tried for treason

    This is the dialog from the sample in the intro of this song:

    Klytus: Your lover, Barin, is harboring Gordon in Arboria, is he not?
    Aura: No!
    Klytus: This lying is such a waste of time!
    Kala: You left with a pilot, and returned alone. Wasn’t he Gordon in disguise?
    Aura: No!
    Klytus: Who do you imagine you’re protecting? The Imperial Surgeon, who revived Gordon in his tomb? Another lover of yours!?
    Aura: Your jealousy of me has made you mad!
    Klytus: Seize the Imperial Surgeon on suspicion of treason.
    Aura: You’re mad!
    Klytus: Prepare for torture!
    Kala: Confess, and we won’t hurt you anymore. We don’t like doing this at all.
    Aura: Never!
    Klytus: Bring me… the bore worms.
    Aura: No! Not the bore worms!

    It’s from the movie Flash Gordon (1980).

  14. Rasheed Edwards

    The production reminds me of an MF DOOM track


    Please stop with the Doom references. This guy is in his own lane, as is Doom. Just let him be who he is and stop comparing.

    Jarek Kopicki

    Rasheed Edwards I’m ashamed to admit that as a hip hop listener I haven’t gotten into MF Doom as I should.. I know he’s incredibly gifted too.

  15. Sorue Poscendo

  51. TheBridgeValid

    He's suppose to be, it's they way he has chose to vocal it

  52. FayariOfficial

    Nobody and I mean NOBODY is on Jay Electronica's level of ingenuity and lyricism right now in the game.. He's that breath of fresh air hip-hop desperately needs, but I can't help feeling depressed that his album may never see the light of day because of Jay-Z..

    Nuri Dickson

    FayariOfficial 4 years later guess who was right? 😢

  59. Andre Baldwin

    We The People Have The Ability To Make This Type Of Music Mainstream....Because Honestly I'm Feed Up With The Garbage Of Today.... So Lets #BringBackRealHipHop

  60. Rocky Marciano

    A disrungled citizen being tried for treason.

  61. James Trammell

    this was not made for ya mainstream

  62. Definitely A Black Guy

    He'll be nicest in the game MAYBE if and when he ever releases that album.

  63. HutchtheWizz

    I wish i could bring light to jay elect so that the whole world could appreciate his music like i do, they just dont understand how awesome he is

  64. Gary Nolan

    Push that negative gene into oblivion.

  65. tmoney88888

    This beat is crazy and how is he off beat?

    Just Tense


  66. Terrence J

    god.damn. hahaha "fuckin skanks...jagerbombs" get'm jayman

  67. de8struction

    It seems like this video has a bit of back masking, if someone knows how to play this backwards let me know what's there!

  68. LordSupreme26

    oh by all means i agree with you but what about what is being said though thats just as important as staying on beat i see where you are coming from though in this world of hip hop that we live in. one thing i can say is that you really can't compare Jay Electronica to Freeway. listen to each rapper and tell me the message that each of them is strvivng to convey and the points that they emphasize in their music.

  69. Johnathan Pine

    And look where Freeway is now... Im just sayin, rhythm is everythin in hip hop.. he's usually good, but here hes just totally off. You can have a flow thats rides the beat at a different pace or a different rhythm than the norm but it has to still ride the beat some how.. its almost like he recorded this acapella and then pasted it on a beat..

  70. Jason Cespedes

    Feeling it... I just hope that Jay-Z and def jam don't strip Jay Electronica of this side of his persona. I want more of this

  71. cali correa

    thats what i said rocky is not at his level lyrics need soul

  72. cali correa

    he aint lyrical like jay but who knows maybe he changes like mac miller... kendrick lamar and ab-soul are around, his or above his level ddepend on people taste

  73. ChompingDiMystik

    I've never noticed that Jay Elec is off beat though.. maybe im just used to his flow but i dont think he sounds bad when he does it though..

  74. ChompingDiMystik

    lol.. yea im a huge JayElec fan but i gotta agree wit ya. That fuckin beat is all over the damn place.. i dont have a problem with weird beats (i do listen to MF Doom afterall lol) but this shit literally gave me a headache.

  75. LordSupreme26

    you don't always have to be on track with the beat though. look at freeway for instance he never rhymes on beat

  76. Johnathan Pine

    No I dont think you do lol Music has a rhythm to it and he was off.. I understand music fine

  77. Johnathan Pine

    I like acapella too but there was a drum rhythm to it and he was off.. making it sound bad. That's all I'm sayin

  78. ZenzybaR

    I kinda like it when rapper seems to be rapping off the beat. Almost accapella on a track.

  79. Johnathan Pine

    Sooo I like Jay alot.. but no one else thinks this song is terrible?
    He is never on beat.. why even use a beat?
    Use a movie score again or something, the drums were everywhere and just made the shit sound bad..
    If this was the first song I ever heard him on, it would have been the last...

  80. BossmanKnowledgeDrop

    What is the first movie sample?

  81. thehognias

    Acting overly macho and abusing homosexuals is what secretly homosexual people do because they are angry with themselves for being gay. And also as an attempt to convince themselves and others that they are not. You should take a break from watching The Notebook and try reading a real book every once in awhile.

  82. Harold Woodson Jr

    Great Track Jay Killed it. One of the most Lyrical Southern Rappers out.

  83. thehognias

    Your homophobia means you secretly desire to place a man's warm genitals into your mouth and gently suck until his semen explodes down your throat.

    Good luck with that.

  84. BlackDynamite1983

    Why is your gay ass still posting on this video?

  85. thehognias

    You're wrong again. I do it out of despair because I'm a miserable human being.

  86. thehognias

    He reps the south kid. That's not random at all. Oh yeah you was educated in the south so you think 'randomly' means the same thing as 'logically'.

    Do you have a ice cream cone tatted on your face?

  87. thehognias

    Thanks for your input, Gucci Mane

  88. Josh Phuck

    @prosper199981 the kid electronica is appearently taking his masculent energy to the Rothchilds, kate rothchild to be exact.. appearently she manages him and he had an affair with him...

  89. prosper199981
