The Beast Named October

Huh!

[Verse 1: MC Zappa]
Cold October roads; alone and no one knows
I'm humble and so, my soul is exposed
I'm kneelin' front of the temple; nothin' is simple
I'm tryna weather the storm that's snuffin' my kinfolk
Not all people can withstand the cold
And some people don't listen when told
I'm freezin' my ass off; not pleasin' me at all
If I wander, will I find the key to the castle?

The cold is like a beast; the beast don't care
Not fictional; this is how it is out there
It only grows colder; I only grow bolder
It may be cold out but inside I smolder
I'm packin' heat; that's the heat in my spirit
It's the truth, even if nobody wanna hear it
Cold can either wake you up or make you hide from it
I'm no preacher but this is my sermon

[Chorus]
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?

[Verse 2: MC Zappa]
October; the coldest, original eighth month
If it could be weighed, it'd certainly weigh tons
You can really feel it weighin' on you all day
See, life is October; you'll never get away
But if you can be strong, you're gonna make it
All the shit in life, you won't take it
It ain't about movin'; it's about wearin a coat
So many out there real, scared and broke

October 31st; we purposely scare ourselves
But I'd rather be free and consciously tear our hells
See, my rhymes make you think cuz I'm thought-provokin'
Outspoken, awoken; never chokin
All I can do is learn and gain experience points
Yo, cuz I ain't jokin'; I'm a serious joint
Cultivate the power, inside of you
Don't get tired of October; make it tired of you, yo!

[Chorus]
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?

[Verse 3: MC Zappa]
The cold, the cold; it's unforgivin'
But I can't ever stop; I must keep livin'
I'm still alive and I'm still survivin'
No matter what, yo, I will still thrive and
Bust through the ice like I'm usin' a ball and chain
Made it where I am, so it can't be all in vain
I got a message and a purpose
And as long as I know that, I'll never be worthless!

I'll never freeze up or seize up or stop movin'
Yo, cuz I'm a warrior; that's God-proven
There ain't no beast that I can't slay
And there ain't no game that I ain't played
If you give me a challenge, I'll rise to it
Whatever keeps me warm, I'm gonna do it
This is what I profess, so call it my profession
But for yourself, just answer this question

[Chorus]
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?
Can you face the beast named October?
Or will it be, for you, a game over?
