Welcome 2 the slaughterhouse
Silicon
Hmph
A rope of silicon, it's just a rope of silicon
A rope of silicon

1 day U'll get outside the do-rag
When U really want 2 contemplate this
Jacked up paranormal situation that ur people got n2
Can I hip U?
Long ago who considered the outcome?
I'm thinkin' a cat like U would b troublesome
And sock U n the mind tangling curriculum
Guaranteed 2 leave U n a state of delirium
While all along teachin' their kids n the valley 2 become
Unlike U, broke and dumb

Just a rope of silicon, a rope of silicon
It's just a rope of silicon, a rope of silicon

On a magical rope of silicon
U can bet that they'll b chillin' n Babylon
Thinkin' about a way that they can split the proton
U eatin' on a bloody chicken and dead prawn
Mickey D shake and a filet mignon
Swearin' up and down U the picture of health, now come on

A rope of silicon, just a rope of silicon (Dang)
A rope of silicon, it's just a rope of silicon (Yeah)
Uh
2 the slaughterhouse

Leave that blood alone
Don't U know that dead blood kills interferons?
Make the immune system a victim 2 whereupon
Any known virus can boot up and logon ww.U.com

A rope of silicon, it's just a rope of silicon
A rope of silicon, it's just a rope of silicon
A rope of silicon, a rope of silicon
A rope of silicon, just a rope of silicon

Now that U've found me, now that U're here
Let's talk about the U n this con
If U're gettin' bored, don't front, just yawn
This is the kind of stuff that requires patience
Never mind the rhyme, just relax and wax on
And on and on and on and on
Ain't gon' stop till the early mornin' (Break it down)
Later on, come break down, y'all (What?)

Dance... (Dance on the funk)
Just dance (Dance on the funk)
Dance (Dance on the funk)
Just dance (Dance on the funk)

A rope of silicon, just a rope of silicon
A rope of silicon, just a rope of silicon
A rope of silicon, just a rope of silicon
Just a rope...

This is why U was lookin' 4 me? (Check it)
Let's talk about the U n this con
If U're gettin' bored, don't front and just yawn
Cuz this is the kind of stuff that requires patience
Don't think, just wax on
If U r the eye that is the pawn
U beget the dead fruit of Armageddon
Thick skin reigns n the realm of the pseudonym
While the blows taken by the silicon
The family does well with God 2 keep us strong
Never a paradox, never a hexagon
U plus he or she keep goin' on
But with another 1 of U n the title of this song
Goes on and on and on and on and on and on

Uh
A rope of silicon, just a rope of silicon
A rope of silicon, it's just a rope of silicon
Dance (Dance on the funk) {repeat}
Dance, dance
