The Warrior's Code

from by Joe Amato III



The Warrior's Code:

Verse 1:

I got a Warriors soul/
a barbarians heart/
if you ask me to surrender/ I will TEAR YOU APART/
I sever heads/ legs/ arms/
and my blades stay sharp/
first one to charge your brigade like Braveheart/

I read The Art of War, and stay smart/
ready for whatever is in store/
facing Joe, is like your fighting Maximus in Ancient Rome/
battle to the death/
if you're scared/ you better stay at home/
made of flesh and bone/ but I'm a God of THE arena/
from the terror-dome/ to Nassau Coliseum/ theres none meaner/
mixing general aggression with a militant demeanor/
a gladiators training, with the spirit of a leader/

the soul of a soldier, thats all that I know/
I carry weight, on my shoulders so I have to unload/
I know I'm not alone and so this poem is my ode/
to everybody living life by THE WARRIOR'S CODE.

Verse 2:

no surrender/
no contender/ on the beat or in the street/ can ever see me, so remember/
I'm a BEAST/
not a friend of/ anyone who isn't meant for/ the arena/
me, I'm waiting in the basement/ to be sent up/
then I FEAST/
on the souls of these emcees who think they're better/
I can see em start to freeze/ from the moment that I enter/
my aggression/ pay attention/ learn a lesson/
from the Spartacus of artists/ go the hardest in the session/
This is HEAT/
from the best/ so go ahead and pick your weapon/
probably piss ya pants/ when I point the pen in your direction/
when I meet my opposition/ theres no stopping the collision/
stop and listen to the story/ how i CRUSH the competition!/

on a mission to develop a notorious flow/
most these losers making music do it all for the dough/
I know that i'll be walking down a glorious road/
living my lifetime/ sticking by THE WARRIOR'S CODE.
