Silenced (this is a pun on the combination of the Turkish words for “be quiet” and “mist”)

Versions: #1#2#3#4
It’s so misty everywhere, one can’t even see his own hands
They’re after us, hush, keep your mouth sealed
There was a time my intellect had gone numb-
My journey had ended even though the path was still smooth
It’s so misty everywhere, one can’t even see his own hands
They’re after us, hush, keep your mouth sealed
Don’t hesitate to purge your energy
It’s so cold here anyway, everywhere is covered in ice
Do you ever lie? A ah
Do you ever listen to others problems? A ah
And what about dwelling on worn- out subjects? A ah
Do you ever choose between people? A ah
 
[Verse 1]
If you watch carefully you’ll realize Megatron is right
And I’m Ghillie kevlar-mythril whereas you're a plain layer of chromium
I’m by myself anyway, so what if I walk around naked, there’s a decathlon on a daily basis after all
I’m always surrounded by barbed wire, now go ahead and ask whether I’m indeed just by myself
Stings all over, come and have a look yourself
All the forms are stuck
I'm stuck between the crumbs, just accept it already
You can’t easily find me in every street corner, come be my B-girl
Are you one of those who stay dedicated or do you easily give up?
You’re one of those who plug shitty music into their ears
But as sorry I am for you there’s nothing I can do about this
I’m not the one who’s rapping fast, you’re always the ones who process my words slowly
Just look at you, moron, you’re speaking as if you’d understand my words if I happened to slow down
Put on some diapers, here’s a test, two times two equals punishment (this is a pun,” punishment” means “Ceza” in Turkish)
Your intellectual savings won’t even fill a cup, have you learned something brat?
Rap is a movement, it’s political
Either deal with it or fuck off
There is a hit-list on the wall, most of y'all are misfit
I decide over the ranks, go ahead and “hit this”
If you don’t have a clue shut up, put salt on your wounds and a foot onto the solid ground
Set up a compass on land; see, that’s a head shot from a great distance
 
It’s so misty everywhere, one can’t even see his own hands
They’re after us, hush, keep your mouth sealed
There was a time my intellect had gone numb-
My journey had ended even though the path was still smooth
No wonder, it’s so misty everywhere, one can’t even see his own hands
They’re after us, hush, keep your mouth sealed
Don’t hesitate to purge your energy
It’s so cold here anyway, everywhere is covered in ice
Do you ever lie? A ah
Do you ever listen to others problems? A ah
And what about dwelling on worn- out subjects? A ah
Do you ever choose between people? A ah
 
[Verse 2]
The mic mic microphone is gone and so am I
I hope my dream will be propitious
I am the captain, look, it’s full of psychos in here
Dismiss them through the door and yet allow them back in through the window
You’re firecrackers, but I am a canon
Come on let’s go, tank the car boy
Also quit the conversation, come on get up cowboy
The rap didn’t like you, the chit- chat wasn’t enough
Some people are sneakily taking control, it seems dark elements have emerged
New ill- intentioned leaders will herd you like cattle
Barricaded roads, new barriers, new dams and new voices,
New character and new dudes, new adherents and new beats
There's no turning back, this hinders our every progress; what now? I don’t know
Hold on, wait, here I come; look I'm here, don't worry
I enforced the future usage of pantomime on those who messed with me with their retail raps
Everyone has gotten sick of this, look, the rush from the left wing is never- ending
Fire in the evening, set the fires but be careful and don't get burned
Look, that’s my style, it erupts violently, overcomes our archaic age and magnifies the power of rap
If I go out on a road, I won't ever turn back
This immaculate tension is mine
Let go of the false and worship the truth
Look, I got a rhyme for you second for second
This place is not suitable for me anyway, it’s too chaotic
 
It’s so misty everywhere, one can’t even see his own hands
They’re after us, hush, keep your mouth sealed
There was a time my intellect had gone numb-
My journey had ended even though the path was still smooth
It’s so misty everywhere, one can’t even see his own hands
They’re after us, hush, keep your mouth sealed
Don’t hesitate to purge your energy
It’s so cold here anyway, everywhere is covered in ice
Do you ever lie? A ah
Do you ever listen to others problems? A ah
And what about dwelling on worn- out subjects? A ah
Do you ever choose between people? A ah
