High On Fire

The Art of Self Defense tracks



Quickening of the elder
Knowledge of the otherside
Deepweed sets emotion
Hardening of the warrior
The burning
That will never die
Melding of the riffchild
From wall to the universe
Weed priest stoned arrival
Sharpening of the weapons
The skill inside the endless mind

Celestial king walks water
Hear words foretell destruction
Hear words expose corruption
Generation darkening

Echoes from the mountain
A warning to behold the times
Insight saved the blind man
Covenant with the father
The burning that will never die
Supersonic psalmist project
Reveals astro child
Windows of the Riffian
Nameless masses cower
From horse and carriage
In the sky

2. 10,000 YEARS

10,000 years or more
In jet black meditation
Sonic tempress hears no more
And hands me my salvation
Walking thru the piles of life
Ignore all accusation
Now I stand here hands are sore
But thats my motivation

The vision never died
The earthling walked in flight

10,000 Years or more
In jet black meditation
Now I stand here hands are sore
But thats my reputation


Flies cloudjian rider
Holding keys to fires
A righteous one begat him
His robe is drenched in blood

Fury is beside him
Knees before the master
Righteous praise from Zion
Wicked born fire

Coming of messiah
Hand of the almighty
Blood flows down from Zion
Turn face from the cheribum


And you crawled in the room with the serpent
And they sucked from your body the poison
Then the cyclops arrived there to warn you
And the Whore entered in to adore you
Seems like life has dawned to fade away

Ice bards' ship the frozen bodies
And the ones in the Son are immortal
Then the skeleton hands you the needle
You were born to this day from the cradle
Seems like life dawned to fade away

Reaper's scythe harvest time is upon you
No more use for abuse in this body
Father time gives the wings now to free you
In the coffin your destiny's beat you


To be rising chief I have traveled a hundred fold days
Wandered dark wilderness, ravens have gathered my ways
Holy man, vision quest, dancing dawn reflects his gaze
Return to the clan with the scalps of the men who betrayed

Medicine man has concocted a potion to see
Animal spirits have filled me and leads what's to be
Runningwolf, eagle eyes, blood running cold in my veins
Great Spirit laughs as my enemies run from my reign

To be rising chief I have traveled a hundred fold days
Wandered dark wilderness ravens have gathered my ways
Look in my eyes your demise is what is fueling my rage
For I am the one whom by others is called fire face


Anger flows, warriors call
Focused eyes see thru them all
Teachers death was a con
Jeet kun do avenging one

Streamline form, flying kicks
Warriors fall from powered hits
Mesmerized speed and fury
Numchuckas crush skulls with their flurry

Snap of the dragon
Crack like a whip
You cannot defy
The master of fists

Bender of will
Defender of bliss
Enters the dragon
The master of fists
