Track Name: What's Cookin?

Oh well, well, well, well, well....
It’s breakfast for dinner!
Breakfast for dinner!
Breakfast for dinner!
Breakfast for dinner! Dinner!

What is she cooking? (I don’t know)
What is she making? (Please tell me so)
What is your mom making? (Well I got to know)
Oh well, well, well, well, well....

Track Name: Shot Down
Feel like I'm decomposing,
Feel like I wasn't chosen,
For the gym class, I was picked last, and now I’m stuck at home and
Vibin out as I sit on the couch so I ponder to the yonder “will ever make it out?”
Probably. But this monotony is haunting me
So strap me to this bed and somebody go give me a lobotomy
But when I’m upon the beat I ride it til its finished
Marathon to paragon, you know i'm on it, so replenished
I’m the dennis to this menace, I’m the apple of your eye
Or maybe the worm inside the apple, rotting by your side
I think I’ve been living a lie, or or givin’ a bit of my mind
To those that chose that road that goes a slower speed and time.
I've been swimming or sinking i'm feeling helpless
Signs be telling me yellin to be more selfish.
Tried for a minute i did it but then i felt sick.
God, i been feelin’ so lost and i can't help it.


I've been shot down, I've been abused.
Oh oh I’m so confused
And lately, I've been thinking bout leaving town
I've been so low, I lost my mind.
Oh oh i’m so confined,
And lately I've been thinking bout leaving town.

Something in my bones is starving in the buzz tonight.
I'm lying to myself playing like I was alright
I wanna fuss and fight, I will become the light
I will invade your brain and eat up all the kryptonite
I fucking need the hype, believe in it and scream it right?
Been itching since I switched and envisioned if I read and write
To make it right, we’ll be alright but we need a light to feed the fight
But even that won't trap what the darkness seems to find
So watch me battle the rage
As i rip and rattle the cage
Have you seen the look on my face?
Man I ain’t made for this place
Man I ain't keeping no pace
With haste I wasting my days
That I ain’t ablaze on the stage
So come my people lets raise.
Because you eyelids are spies kids
They tryna hide the fact that you can be inspiring
The road is never straight in fact its mostly winding
And straight out of this town is where I’m driving

I've been shot down, I've been abused.
Oh oh I’m so confused
And lately, I've been thinking bout leaving town
I've been so low, I lost my mind.
Oh oh i’m so confined,
And lately I've been thinking bout leaving town.

Track Name: Gotta Have
So you can shiver my timbers, I’m hoping you’re limber
I got the package, sign here, and I’ll deliver mine
Can I come inside and pry and ride around that pretty mind?
Thought about it today like nine thousand fifty times.
Oh you like them witty rhymes? Oh what a pity I’m
Feeling shitty, didn’t get your name, I must be trippin right?
Hips and eyes, hitting right, left hooks to these crooks.
Mad fly, paralyzed, she’s one for the books.
Got us all shook, richter scale radness
Why you walking away to leave me sitting in this sadness?
You’ll wish that you had this, the baddest of all the good
Ya girlies say you shouldn’t when you really know you should.
I’m ready to pop the bottle, full throttle, lets hit the lotto,
No motto, but I gotta question that might make you need to coddle.
Ok? Baby lets make a deal.
Or better lets make a baby, baby, and keep it real.


You gotta have my baby.
Come here, don’t say maybe.
Those eyes drive me crazy.
And you gotta have my baby.
You gotta have my baby.
Come here, don’t say maybe.
Those eyes drive me crazy.
And you gotta have my baby.

So I don’t know if you heard, but the way you swerve
Makes me purr, like a kitten, im kiddin’, really smitten for sure.
You working it girl, twerkin my world, deserve every pearl
That I’ma buy you, supply you, while you lie back and I work
So don’t leggo my eggo cause I’m tryna get you preggo
Mega crushing, now you blushing, hush, we building up like legos.
I’m a stegosaurus roaring, storming, warming up your oven
and those buns are looking mighty ready, steady for some loving.

You gotta have my baby.
Come here, don’t say maybe.
Those eyes drive me crazy.
And you gotta have my baby.
You gotta have my baby.
Come here, don’t say maybe.
Those eyes drive me crazy.
And you gotta have my baby.

SHREDDDDDD

You gotta have my baby.
Come here, don’t say maybe.
Those eyes drive me crazy.
And you gotta have my baby.
You gotta have my baby.
Come here, don’t say maybe.
Those eyes drive me crazy.
And you gotta have my baby.

Track Name: Moments Only Pass
Moments only pass to make room for more
X8

Well I know these moments always pass and our asses will turn to ash
And these checks that we go and cash, they mean nothing to the past
But the past is all I got and I’m holding on too tight .
It’s not right, but it’s all thats left, so I'll walk into the light.
And i'll fight to make it hype with this mic and these fucking nikes
And you’re right that I’m the light, so invite me in tonight
Because you, yes you! Goddamn, you make it worth it
and this look inside your eyes, well I must say that its perfect
I must say that I’m burning so deep that it keeps me churning
There’s a storm brewing inside, it’s bottling, and now I’m squirming
I’m chirp-chirping with these vermin and their subtle songs of yearning
But of time, I’m not concerning, in my prime, these wheels are burning
And they be taking me away to a day when I'm not hurting
Just flirting with the moon shine, man it’s glow has got me searching
for you, the unspeakable truth,
Cause the past had to go die to give birth to something new.

Moments only pass to make room for more
X8


She told me, I could be the king of all I see.
But what I've found, is you look like the queens and kings to me.
You pull me, down into your bed on nights so cold
And you wrap your arms around me like I'm draped in gold.
You stun me, throwing glances of majestic blue.
You tell me, “Everything I see might not be true.”
So I’m sorry if you believe this world is full of piss.
Cause I’m telling you, darling, it gets no better than this.
Better than this, better than this, better than this...

Moments only pass to make room for more

Track Name: Liar, Liar
I notice every lie from you
Share a little story and then you stretch the truth,
But I see right through, but I see right through
It doesn’t even bother me, but it’s for you own good to follow honesty,
So I must come clean, so I must come clean
I notice every lie from you
Share a little story and then you stretch the truth,
But I see right through, but I see right through
It doesn’t even bother me, but it’s for you own good to follow honesty,
So I must come clean, so I must come clean

I try to ignore that something shattered inside of this sunken chest
And it ripped open my bladder, my lungs, and all the rest.
And this dark feeling, that you can’t touch what’s next
And the fear that these decisions were never for the best.
It’s a mess, so far from blessed, and this nest, well it feels compressed
And I’m stressed, can’t find no rest or the words that can attest
To the way I went all toddler and broke up all my toys.
Well he doesn’t play well with others, he can’t find his own voice.
He’s allergic to being cherished, his good intentions just perish
He’s built to go embarrass, he’ll never be fit for marriage
You see the look in his eyes? Aw shit well damn me neither.
Least eager of all the beavers, this cheating bottom feeder.
Crafty little dipshit, silver tongue that flips shit.
In the business of good riddance, got a mindset on a quick fix.
So let’s nix this, flip it like three 6’s,
Yea cut up all your ties and get down with the sickness.

I notice every lie from you
Share a little story and then you stretch the truth,
But I see right through, but I see right through
It doesn’t even bother me, but it’s for you own good to follow honesty,
So I must come clean, so I must come clean
I notice every lie from you
Share a little story and then you stretch the truth,
But I see right through, but I see right through
It doesn’t even bother me, but it’s for you own good to follow honesty,
So I must come clean, so I must come clean


Follow honesty, honestly I’m an oddity.
Gotta be something greater than drowning in this dichotomy.
Bottling up the feelings and sealing with it “don’t bother me.”
Bodily harm, alarming, and warning me not to to follow the
Road more traveled, I’m roaming right into battle
You disowned my throne, and took the keystone to the castle
I’ma backpedal til the sun settles underneath me
Three feet of shit and pity piling up like feces
Beastly burdens, I’m hurting, I thought you need me
Free me, please make it easy, don’t wanna see thee
Moody movie thats moving me to the future
I’ma sit back and enact a black track straight maneuvered
For the, demolition of premonition I’m steady wishing
Forget admission of guilt when you killed the way we living
I wanna lie and say that i don’t get just why you did it
But i’ve been there, done that, fun fact, ok so lets kick it.

I notice every lie from you
Share a little story and then you stretch the truth,
But I see right through, but I see right through
It doesn’t even bother me, but it’s for you own good to follow honesty,
So I must come clean, so I must come clean
I notice every lie from you
Share a little story and then you stretch the truth,
But I see right through, but I see right through
It doesn’t even bother me, but it’s for you own good to follow honesty,
So I must come clean, so I must come clean

Liar, liar, pants on
Fire, Fire, dance on
Liar, liar, pants on
Fire, Fire, dance on...

I notice every lie from you
Share a little story and then you stretch the truth,
But I see right through, but I see right through
It doesn’t even bother me, but it’s for you own good to follow honesty,
So I must come clean, so I must come clean
I notice every lie from you
Share a little story and then you stretch the truth,
But I see right through, but I see right through
It doesn’t even bother me, but it’s for you own good to follow honesty,
So I must come clean, so I must come clean
Track Name: Stay
Steady meditating, been waiting around
I’m stuck in a moment thats holding me to this sound.
I’m sticky stuck in this house,
Don’t care if it’s getting loud,
We got loving curmudgeons, no trouble or running mouths
It’s just funk fairies with crunk berries, and nice cherries.
They fight rarely, it’s quite merry when the night’s scary
So I think about it nearly every single day
At any moment your chosen going to the palace of play
Go and devour these rays,raising me up to today,
Raising some raisins to go and raise the dark clouds right away
So I think i’ll stay lil mama, aint no place for this drama
Ain’t no reason for no leaving, think I’ll stay a little longer
So ride on the rhythm, pick apart a pretty pattern
I’m privy to shimmy shimmy chakras shaking saturn
Make a mark and make it matter, make a miracle of scattered
Tattered pieces of these people believing in all the chatter, get up!

I don’t wanna go home
Oh namaste, oh nah I’m a stay
I don’t wanna go home
Oh namaste, oh nah I’m a stay

Oh namaste, oh nah I’m a stay
X4

It’s transforming, the couches they start absorbing
All the aliens are failing to fall into normal orbit
All the zombies are moonwalking, and awkwardly morbid
I serpentine til I find that I fell into morning
I mourn mornings of bad tidings and guts that are pouring
Damn glad that these rad cats have killed all the boring
Don’t think I’m leaving but sleep is hard when they’re constantly snoring
In a few minutes we finish the business needed for soaring
And I sit down, sort it all out
Start to get lost in the thought of being found
Hard to believe I was leaving me out
Leaving these feeble needs with thee clouds
I fell down, slave to the sound
Make me believe I’m leaving it all now
Free to believe in the meaning of this town
Webs that we weave are making me proud, we proud


I don’t wanna go home
Oh namaste, oh nah i’m a stay
I don’t wanna go home
Oh namaste, oh nah i’m a stay

Oh namaste, oh nah i’m a stay

Track Name: Cash Rules
My nose is runny and my eyes are red
And I can’t seem to get out of bed.
My nose is runny and my eyes, they are red
And I can’t seem to get out of bed
It’s a wonderful life, a wonderful life
A wonderful life, we live, we live

So I found a couple dollars on the sidewalk today
That made me feel like I was ok so I can get by, get high, get whatever I need, I need
But it reminded me of the times where my pockets was full
Trading hours of my day, wasting away to play it cool
Lay it down, obey the rules to play the fool, no nevermore
I’m betting on little old me to settle the score

I wish cash ruled everything around you, not me
Dip into the bank, grab it all, get away scott-free
Pop thee bottles, dance til you’re dead
Find time to laugh at the voice in your head
I wish cash ruled everything... not me
Dip into the bank, grab it all, get away scott-free
Pop thee bottles, dance til you’re dead
Find time to laugh at the voice in your head

Throw me to the fire, cause damn I like the burn
Sick of hearing bout all the lessons I should learn
I’ll stick with the worms, digging around in all these roots
In this shady little village who can say who holds the truth
I shoot shoot the sheriff and the deputy
Its hard to look past the cast that they pretend to be
Ain’t no telling or spelling just what it meant to me
And damn, its always hard…relying on eventuallys

I wish cash ruled everything around you, not me
Dip into the bank, grab it all, get away scott-free
pop thee bottles, dance til you’re dead
find time to laugh at the voice in your head
I wish cash ruled everything... not me
Dip into the bank, grab it all, get away scott-free
pop thee bottles, dance til you’re dead
find time to laugh at the voice in your head

My nose is runny and my eyes are red
And I can’t seem to get out of bed
It’s a wonderful life, a wonderful life
A wonderful life, we live
Don’t forget it
Track Name: The Ballad of Rob Banks
So it’s me and the crew, like five dudes with an attitude
Had to shake and bake make a move to go and save the groove
The funds was getting low, the rent was getting high
Brains going all manic panic had to go philosophize
If you take goods from the bad are you bad at being good
Or good at being bad is it rad or sad to feel like you should
Take the wealth from the wealthy? If you can go and be stealthy
I think this appetites quite alright and perfectly healthy
And man I can’t kick the fix
Go pick up the crew and come thru with a bag of tricks
I’m feeling devilish, kevin spitting that 666
But that’s irrelevant I think we need tighten the script.
I got the hoodie, ski mask and a van that’s fully gassed
And of course I’m packing heat, man do you even gotta ask?
Ok it’s a water pistol but the plans clear crystal
Run up to the teller, what we tell her is super simple.

Rock, paper, scissor, shoot!
Now gimme all the loot
Rock, paper, scissor, shoot!
Now gimme all the loot
Rock, paper, scissor, shoot!
Now gimme all the loot
Rock, paper, scissor, shoot!
Now gimme all the loot

A stunning realization, my hands are clammy and I’m feeling naked, heart is racing
I see the guard adjacent being blatant probably feels impatient and now I started pacing, Having a hard time man, seeing how long this is taking
But I gotta get a grip, no time for the mind to unwind or freakin take a trip
But I feel my fingers slip
Shot fired I think I made a mistake
Somebody rewind this picture or go pump these brakes
Oh shit these guns is real
I must have switched em, forgotten, now I’m coppin a feel of this cold steel
The guard dives for his life and he started shooting back, a full attack
A mirage with a barrage of bullets duckin down I’m on my back
No time to think its times to act I think I found a clear path
Ducking and weaving and quickly proceeding I will not be beaten I’m on a track
No going back no going back I feel like I’m about to yak
I bee line like a feline screaming holding onto my wad of cash.

Rock, paper, scissor, shoot!
Now gimme all the loot
Rock, paper, scissor, shoot!
Now gimme all the loot
Rock, paper, scissor, shoot!
Now gimme all the loot
Rock, paper, scissor, shoot!
Now gimme all the loot
Track Name: Who Let You In?
These are not my dreams,
These are not my nightmares,
Who let you in my head?
These are not my dreams,
These are not my nightmares,
Who let you in my bed?
(Well I’ve been stealing dreams)
x5
Track Name: Dreamswap
I had a dream...but somebody took it
And in its place they left something a bit more crooked
And see the thing is, I don’t recognize these faces
My eyes feel strange I don’t recognize what my race is
Is that racist? I dont think so
But I blink and think the sky is falling quickly
And they kick me swiftly sprinting and running and something, I dip out quickly
But this atmosphere its super clear its got me feeling sickly
Cause I know that I don’t belong long gone and yea man something hit me
This ain’t my dream this my mind this ain’t my R.E.M.
This ain’t my job you ain’t my mom i'm really sorry mam
But i've never been here before as I’m starting to near the door
I hear some more foreign noise I'm frightened what its got in store
As I try hold my breathe or what I think is mine
I try to retrace the steps to find this place and time
Its like adjacent I'm thinking someone replaced my mind
Stuck in the puzzle dumbstruck and plucked from this bed of lies.

I can’t go on, please take me home
Everything dies but we still rise up in the morn
I can’t go on, please take me home
Everything dies but we still rise up in the morn

Dry mouth, wet palms
Quicksand in the land of the bombs
Quick hands that abandon the fans in a rampant attempt to bang on the gong
Sang me a song, uh…..but the words don’t fit
Something i missed when it dripped from your lips
Stuck in a fit that don’t fit the mix i usually kick
Tryna find a new exit
Tryna find a new piece of mind but this piece of time’s what i’m left with
Out steps this, beast that feeds on being reckless
So i’m cutting corners, avoiding this hellish nexus
But i can’t outrun it, heavy limbs to the ground I plummet
With no advantage to the man whose sick to his stomach
I give up running, face the demons here chasing me
Make believe i’m escaping thee
Fate that keeps on erasing me
So I get swallowed no bother in my demise
I follow wallowing sickness I’m inflicted until I die
Tomorrow comes and its brung me a better sky
So watch me lie with all the liars dividing into the night.

I can’t go on, please take me home
Everything dies but we still rise up in the morn
I can’t go on, please take me home
Everything dies but we still rise up in the morn
Track Name: Holy Rollers
Hold up! peel back your skin let's begin
The mastering of your inner animal, too natural
Cause you gotta let out of the cage, rage
Think I been stuck haze, blaze
Ways away from those days, ay
When I used to just play, play
But now I'm electrified,
With this voltage, hold it close to me
Hopefully, you cut me deep and open me and you can go and see
That I'm not built for this body got me locked in
But I watch you shock them break out of the boxes
And I know it's my time to stop em

Hit you with these forty tongues lashing
Scars of a heart carved from stars crashing
Oh what's that? you say you wanna see passion
Well factor in the fact that I ain't acting
Hurts too deep and it burn like acid
Break you down divide to fractions
Simple mathematics shooting automatic
Fuck up the static we bringing in the panic
Bringing you the racketest rap rap with no backpack
Its a trap trap in a snap back but yo fuck that bring the vocab
Straight from the gonads go rad and you know that
We gunna steal the show
Ate up the game now we back for more
Unforeseeable, unbelievable, it's time to gather up all the freaks ya know

Holy Rollers, take your throne
It’s time, it’s time
Holy Rollers, take your throne
It’s time, it’s time


Think there's a storm coming ah! I can feel it up in my bones
Take this leash from the beast and unleash those freaks cause yea we dipped in chrome
We get it on uh! from the minute that beat comes on
Whether its 3 up in the morn our hearts are torn at the break of dawn
For god sake come on come on let it all loose
The time is now no time to choose
What you gunna do what you gunna be
When they come see if you gunna make some history
Well I rewrote it no freeloading just be bold and explode it
No holding on and no control just let it go and unload it
Passion smashing through atoms patterns are random captain with a squad full of savages Handling animal natures racing without no patience for you super calculated wasted basics
Nothing basic bout me
Go ahead and doubt me
Shout it loudly
For I'm proud of my messes
Distressed and so fucking blessed
Yes its the big brother wolf who huffed and puffed enough stuff to rupture up all your guts
So I'll call your bluff, raise your hand
Smoking aces no faking man
So I'll take this stand if you take my hand
I'm holy rollin till I turn to sand


Holy Rollers, take your throne
It’s time, it’s time
Holy Rollers, take your throne
It’s time, it’s time

Take a walk on the wild side, wild side
Come and take me home
Take a walk on the wild side, wild side
Get into your zone
Take a walk on the wild side, wild side
Come and take me home
Take a walk on the wild side, wild side
Get into your zone

Holy Rollers, take your throne
It’s time, it’s time
Holy Rollers, take your throne
It’s time, it’s time
