(feat. I'll Bill)

One night, backstage at Irving Plaza at a Madball show

[Lars:] Hey yo I'll Bill - will you sign this for me?
I found it at Amoeba it's the Green cd
[Bill:] No doubt kid, what's your name?
[Lars:] It's mc Lars
[Bill:] Word, Howie Abrams is a mutual friend of ours
He played me your joint Lars... What'd you think of it?
[Bill:] I think it's bugged out, it's hot
[Lars:] Thanks, I like your last record a lot. Your lyrics are
Graphic, much like your brother Necro, is he psycho?
[Bill:] I don't know, it really depends though
He's Psychological, half psycho, half logical,
Half businessman, half put-them-in-the-hospital
[Lars:] Business and art, there's a very fine line
There's the person that you are
And the person when you rhyme
But the best mc's bring both intertwined
[Bill:] I agree, that's when the best of both worlds collide
When the realness pops off one time for your mind,
And your words cause the people in the crowd to riot

[Chorus:]
As many places I've been. As many people I've met
As many haters I've dissed. There's people that I respect
As many times as I've failed. As many times as I've won
As many lives as I touch. The dialogue has begun

[Bill:] I grew up on heavy metal and hip-hop
The energy was the same to me, it was insane to me
It made me want to rage against the machine
Pick up a guitar and scream into the mic like Run-Dmc

Influenced me like a postmodern epistle
Geeked out on my Performa looping digital drums
Playing rock guitar in punk bands just for fun
Who's your favorite rapper? Bill... Rakim, G Rap and Kane
Krs, epmd, nwa, Public Enemy, Shante and ll Cool J
I could keep naming mc's all day,
What type of metal stuff you listen to?
[Lars:] Old school Slayer cd's, Biohazard and
Bile were the bands for me
The first time that I ever heard Chuck D
Was the Anthrax cd, "Attack of the Killer B's"... Chorus!

[Repeat chorus]
[Lars:] So Bill, what's your take on censorship?
Politicians on a church/state fusion tip?
[Bill:] I speaks my mind while kids I went to high school with
Bleed on the sands of Kabul hit, it's bullshit,
Lars what you think of it?
[Lars:] Out in Iraq, a lack of dialogue
Between the people is whack!
[Bill:] In fact I speak militant like Black Panthers
These gas prices got my people
With seeds having to gank pampers
[Lars:] The answer is not plutocracy.
The answers is not hypocrisy,
The answers is true democracy
[Bill:] The answer is the dialogue constantly

[Repeat chorus]

[Lars:] Hey yo Bill, we should do a track together
[Bill:] Word, word, let's do that
[Lars:] Wait, we just did
