lyrics

where did the magic go?
where did the magic go?
i miss the magic, yo.

there was a time, when there was maaa-gic
somehow, i cruised right passed it
when i used to move to grooves in the plastic
vinyl- stuck to loops, glued with the mastic
find now, struck, couldn't illum with a matchstick
right now, sucks, cuz just consumed with the drastic
geopolitical ratchet, it's that's sick, a
fastidious immigrant's bastion of fat grins never
lastin. --i need a plan to implement
no wrinkles, basic tinkering, paced for simpletons
evaded pinkertons, racing for a pinker tongue
pocket full of rocks, water walking, stage for sink or
swum--instead it's drifting, no waitin /for a
swell uplifting, a pail of sugar in a pool of
Lipton, tryna brighten the palate, business end of a
mallet to melon. -bitter rinds in a salad with lemon

-- the magic, is that the magic, the magic?
i want the magic, the magic, is that the magic, the magic?

i want the magic, is that the magic, where's the magic, where's the magic
i want the magic, where's the magic, is that the magic, is that the magic

ay, -let's focus on some doses of hocus pocus with
hopes it'll coax us from rope a dopes to throwin blows, in motion
give visitation to engagin prestidigitation
stagin impressive wavings in ways to stave the stress and hating
invite the fam with a sleight of hand, now a lighter man,
went from hard boiled and strident chants, to a side of ham
under a spell, of wonder and well being/ a
swell feeling, please reveal, anything at all appealing
what's appealing, i guess that's the essence
anything making me feel, stretched by its presence
anything making me feel, stretched by its presence
anything making me feel, like it's making me feel
that's not authentic or tantric
simulatin stimulatin ax-on, dendritic
grim, who's facin kin who's vacant, that's scientific
but that's the risk you takin, playing try to git it

-i want the magic, the magic, is that the magic, the magic?
-i want the magic, the magic, is that the magic, the magic?

chasing the paper or the dragon's tail -
chasing the fable or the wagon's wheel-
wasting the faith, on the exterior
wasting away, in the interior

-i want the magic, the magic, is that the magic, the magic?
-i want the magic, the magic, is that the magic, the magic?

strict regimen -script bedouin
no mad wandering the desert, glad pondering the weather
strict regimen -script bedouin
no mad wandering the globe, glad sauntering it
slow
-
no mad wandering the earth, glad i wasn't on her first
-
never mad wandering the planet, in the end we're just savage

-- is that the magic, where's the magic, where's the magic
-i want the magic, where's the magic, is that the magic, is that the magic?

is that the magic, is that the magic?
