Plato

"Plato Mode"

[Part 1]

[Intro: Socrates]
Athens, yeah
Sun is down, freezin’ cold
That’s how we already know, in a cave
They probably thought that I was from the depths of hell
That’s just all they know, they don’t know nothin’ else
I tried to show ‘em, yeah
I tried to show ‘em, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Goin’ on ‘bout his thoughts and role
Young Athenian, he in Plato Mode

[Part 2]

[Verse 1: Plato]
Woo, in the cave right here with all the shadows on the move
When the boy outside, he come back thinkin’ he a sleuth
Yeah, chain him up boys, that’s what we do cause he uncouth
This is way too deep, they just like givin’ me the Truth
(Give me the Truth!)
Was off the good wine, and some herbs too
Had to leave his home town, corrupt the youth
I was just so letdown, no other move
Now it’s 4 a.m., I’m philosophizin’ with the crew
Yeah I just reclined, Aristotle’s wine like Jamba Juice
Do you got the grapes, you know that be Athen’s only fruit
Are you chokin’, man, know the Spartans wishin’ it were true

[Bridge: Homer]
Home-Home-Homer said
To win the retreat, Odyssey’s too deep
P-persistence is key, yeah the homeland is sweet (Homer said)
To win the retreat, Odyssey’s too deep
P-persistence is key, yeah the homeland is sweet


[Verse 2: Plato]
Athens way too relaxed, y’all know I don’t follow suit
There’s a better way, to run this place it’s just the truth
All of these folks, made from people who can’t produce
I might take this society and divide it into groups
Read my essays, they all are true
Bout’ to turn this function, up on its roof
First is my top group, they all for you
In this noble lie, they gon’ be the gold don’t try a coup
(Just bein’ selfless)
Can’t see their families, it’s not the move
Next the silvers they awesome too
They say, “we protect you”, then take the loot
But we should trust them, they number two
Is there a third class too what do they do?
They must produce the goods for the crew

[Bridge: Homer and Plato]
Homer said
They the bronze they just normal dudes
Homer said
Persistence is key
Homer said, yeah you know that Homer said
The homeland is sweet

[Part 3]

[Socrates]
Athens
Yeah, yeah
Ayy, ayy

[Chorus: Socrates]
I’m in love with who I am
Back with hoplites, I killed Spartans with my lance
Now I sit symposium with goblets in my hands
I just drank some Hem’, 13 hours ‘til I’m dead
Had me out like our might, ayy, yeah
Like our might, ayy, yeah

[Verse 3: Socrates and Plato]
Like our might, ayy, slept through the fight
Dead for all time, ayy
399, man, and now I’m ‘bout to die, man
Want to philosophize, man
My death ‘bout to suck (‘bout to suck)
But it’s right (Yeah, right)
Cut our rights (Yeah, what?), ‘ll pay the price (Yeah)
Sparta think it’s sweet (Nah, never), it’s alright (Yeah, what?)
Nothin’ nice (Yeah), nothin’ in my vice (Aw, man)
Jesus Christ (Who?), polis over life
That’s what I like, that’s what we like
Lots of respect, you not a threat
When I give my thoughts, they be heavy like I’m best, see the
Thoughts that I took (Ayy), gave to the youth (Ayy)
Think-in’ too quickly
Won’t understand what I said, I make it tricky (Yeah, what?)
Like “where is he?” (Yeah, what?)
“No one seen him” (Yeah, yeah)
“I’m gonna be him” (RIP!)

[Chorus: Socrates and Plato]
I’m in love with who I am
Back with hoplites, I killed Spartans with my lance
Now I sit symposium with goblets in my hands
I just drank some Hem’, 13 hours ‘til I’m dead
Had me out like our might, (Like our might)
Like our might, (Like our might)
Like our might, (Like our might)
Like our might

[Verse 4: Plato]
Yeah, Crito really felt that he
Could get him out by night, yeah
He said “I’ll break the lock”
I said “You know it’s useless, right?” yeah
There’s no use, he’s dead let’s move
Now my amazing, Republic doomed, yeah
We back on the road, I’m going off writing my neumes, yeah
Glaucon in the back
He said he workin’ on it too, yeah (That’s my bro!)
Off the hook, yeah, that’s how it look, yeah
‘Bout a check, (Check), just check for good, Pass
This to Aristotle, I’ma show him what it took (Yeah)
We are the very best, man these other people shook
Yeah-yeah-yeah
