Snap “The Power”

Should you be searching for something unique
Something that verses a wealth of mystique
Something far more than your toy of the week
Then call off the search at greykeeper

One pair of rebels, united in cause
Sky high like treble on silent applause
Ever assembled with never a pause
When painting the walls a shade deeper

Relaying shit as it needs to be said
No time permitting for deeds to be read
What we possess supersedes intellect
Need not depend on high-speed internet

Bending the rules as they need to be bent
Twin wrecking balls with good reason to vent
Venturing forth with all sorts of conviction
Some call us fact which of course means we’re fiction

Reason and rhyme double time through slick diction
Looking to be the next feelgood addiction
Cracking the code, in safe mode this decryption
Rewiring nodes, coefficient of friction

Contact maintained as we merge to mainframe
Adjusting to frequency one-and-the-same
Equally live wire, in sequence arcane
To the power of two, to the mother a brain

One half is keeper, the other half grey
Never quite sure which one comes out to play

Up to our eyeballs, no time to downplay
Just what we bring to the table this day

Foundations stable, we shook them to see
Threat now disabled and set to proceed
None more devout, no more fabled a breed
To the power of two, to the demon a seed

Should you be searching for something unique
Something immune to the gloom of critique
Something that offers the heat that you seek
Then call off the search at greykeeper

No mincing our words as we’d miss out on gristle
Plucked us a rose, fucked it with its own thistle
Since that dismissal, it’s crystalline clear
Time to admit us as finally here

One pair of rebels, united in cause
One channelled vessel with total recall
Two times the heat equals nobody’s fool
Now let’s paint the walls a shade deeper
