Mos Def a Capella in Japan :: “Embassy” from The Ecstatic


from the new album by mos def

Mentioned that he worked for the embassy.
People seem to find that interesting-
High status, intrigue and mystery.
Special code name on the hotel registry.
I love it when they say,
‘Enjoy your stay.’
You see how they mean it,
Cause thats the way they’ve been trained.
Show you to your room,
A suite with a view.
‘Well if anything at all,
Do not hesitate to call.’
Nice, the greatest, the greatest.
Compliments: tooth brush, tooth paste, razors,
A bible, a quaran in a drawer
Or, depending where you are,
Tend to whisper through the walls.
She was calling on God.
The greatest, the greatest.
Salutations, congratulations,
Reservations, exclusive arrangements.
Dinner with the patrons,
The scenery is amazing.
It’s so outrageous,
They whisper when they say it,
When its really real, its even realer than The Matrix.
Classic, modern, ancient, flagrant
Get a special thrill everytime they get to say it.
I work with the embassy,
On behalf of imagination industry.
I come visit,
you come visit.
Such a pleasure,
official business.
