about

From the George Zhen album "In Transit"

lyrics

He was a brilliant social hacker born with the acumen of a demon
He could split the mathematics of a tree
He put a hundred million dollars stolen from an internet casino
into twenty bank accounts he's set up overseas

Now he's passing parallels of latitude with frequency and amplitude
Here, there, everywhere...

Born upon the sound of some 500 angry horses
The underworld enforcer, he's arrived
He failed to recognize the kid disguised as your typical underachiever
who'd grown up to become the most wanted man alive

Now he's passing parallels of latitude with frequency and amplitude
Here, there, everywhere...
Never mean but sometimes rude with latency of gratitude
Here, there, everywhere...

Socrates rode the bed of nails they call The Eagle out of Dallas
Across the open desert to L.A.
Became a lab rat at the crack of dawn by having all of his fingerprints redrawn
Then they dermal-patched his dirty DNA

Now he's passing parallels of latitude with frequency and amplitude
Here, there, everywhere...
Never mean but sometimes rude
Well I saw it on the news
Here, there, everywhere...
