This is pure genius, it inspired me to write a verse about 2012 as well this morning, I've been listening to this track nonstop since I got this new KRS CD "The BDP Album" in the mail yesterday, ain't none of today's young rappers dropping this much knowledge, even J. Cole can't top this, KRS is still hip hop elite in 2012 baby!!!: http://rapgenius.com/Krs-one-aztechnical-lyrics Verse One: If you don't like what you wearing, you get a different look You wanna escape Armageddon, read a different book When knowledge is right there, we don't even look December 2012 got this whole world shook But look, the last days for others are the first days for us The question to ask is who can you trust Respect to all that 2012 stuff But when you really study it it's fear, it don't apply to us Yo, Hollywood lies to us, all day The question is what does your culture say Where's your culture at? Who's your prophet? What history guides your spiritual logic? It starts with a story, then it's hypnotic Then any myth that comes along, you just adopted it Why? Because your culture, you forgot it December 2012, let's continue this topic Turn the page, the present world age Began 3114 BC According to the Mayan calendar, this age concludes December 21st 2012 AD This 5125 years cycle of calm is one world age Nothing changes overnight, it's all a process A transition, it happens over many days In the Mayan calculation a K'in, is one day The Mayan Winal, that's 20 days The Tun is 360 days A K'atun is 7200 days The B'ak'tun is 144,000 days And they applied that to the Milky Way In the cycles they saw the sun Moving across the Milky Way's equator Lining up with other galactic neighbors We've been shifting for 30 years it seems From 1980 to about 2016 The shift is now, it's occurring now But if you're learning from the movies you won't know how to survive Or stay alive after the storm Cause after that a new world order is born Oh, you don't know, man? About they programs? You still watching Lindsay, you don't see that low hand? Let go, man, the flood is coming Don't be scared, get prepared, keep your motor running Rock with me [Hook] Higher level [Verse 2] Yep, it's all mass control, here's the philosophy Cortés knew about the Aztec prophecy Before he invaded their society He studied their cultural psychology He knew they had armor, guns, and steeds So he arrived in the Aztec year 1-Reed That's the year Quetzalcoatl Was prophecized to return from exile in fact Cortés played out the Aztec myth And took away those people's will to resist Cortés played on religious beliefs And blinded the Aztecs, cause he was a thief Look, the Yucatan, that's a Mayan book of cycles It lets the Mayans know when the Gods are gonna strike you In fact, every 13 K'atuns you see The Mayans were visited with a catastrophe So every 200 and 56 or 7 years The Mayan people lived with this fear So on the island of Tayasal now Flores The Spanish came armed with this knowledge They knew according to the Mayan heavens That the next cycle was 1697 So as the Mayans stood there fixed on the heavens The Spanish showed up with all of their weapons March 13th, 1697 The Mayan people learned a terrible lesson Your fears and tears are used against you Cause 80% of world control is mental But back to the Mayans, they getting some more 257 years after Tayasal A US-backed coup overthrows their democracy in 1954 That's exactly 257 years from when the Spaniards arrived at their shores I'm getting to the core of the lesson Lets see what happens in 2211 That's the next cycle, that people remember Like 2012, the 21st of December The consciousness may shift, you may turn the light But you are the universe, you're gonna be alright The pole may shift, your soul may lift To higher consciousness but you know all this The Edutainment style will persist Forget the fear, it's knowledge that runs all this [Hook]
