Highway 06:03
I know I've been here once before A light in the darkness And I am so mindless I'm so alone A thousand times I heard the cry Arrive at the doorway And lie on the highway Middle of nowhere Left for no reason Kickin and screamin Burn away squealin Rubber not even Another match and we score Striker, in just the right spot Ive been blessed, lines crossed Kill the beat, hide in the melody Feel fly on the wall I could never see True gods inside all youll ever be A whole universe deep into the molecule Long plank bridge but its rotten through Stepping like wolf ready to hop Howl, loud big mean gritty scowl Proud, who gon' fuck with us now? Coward, whole lot more by the hour Power, well you can butter me up Cause when the heat hits it'll scorch us Old golden brown notorious So fiery, so gorgeous Let the flares go, I ignored them You're a bad bad bad bad bad bad bad one but you know it And you know this Had a worn heart when I wrote this Blowin smoke lookin old dish yeah Goin all in for the potion Oh you got half? throw it on black Oops there she goes whole roll dummy Emptied out, low blow to the tummy You'll get no more from me I know I've been here once before A light in the darkness And I am so mindless I'm so alone A thousand times I heard the cry Arrive at the doorway and lie on the highway Nothin' in the back Pop that latch as the seat lays flat Couldn't do shit with a baseball bat Look into the eye of a man through a mask Careful with yours, as could be the last Pedal to the metal, burn that gas Let the wheels spin fast. let the wheels spin fast. Let the wheels- Death is realized Once fear has left you paralyzed Only see things through our eyes So what if the reflections lied Hide, get outside You are not in your right mind Too smart, I wanna dumb down Think of things straight bending thoughts now Love found in an ignorant bliss Wide eyed, starin at tits Offended, well its open ended Plastic in the ocean to show I meant it Pull up on a garden in a truck, cement it Plant based, army of ant slaves Meat fed, off on a rampage Just a pulled pin, no hand grenade, what? You've lost some listeners, huh? Whispers in a blizzard Big lick off the back of witch lizard Trip when the whole world flip, met the wizard Whap, crack, caught the staff left some splinters Back to reality - cold dirt nap is what happened actually I woke up, mouth tastes like batteries Oh make shape shift - you can't fake this We've all broke it going hard Cram them all in it's basic bullshit Park the bus on the boulevard Growing antlers, maybe horns Not sure what for but there will be scars Self inflicted, or maybe gifted Lonely nights staring at the stars I know I've been here once before A light in the darkness And I am so mindless I'm so alone A thousand times I heard the cry Arrive at the doorway and lie on the highway All I hear is me, latency Been this way since eight thirteen That's the summer when these lines blurred Gettin out soon time served No buddies no close friends All gone and we lost ends Maybe see me when you lie flat All in it was highjacked All I hear is me, latency Been this way since eight thirteen That's the summer when these lines blurred Gettin out soon time served No buddies no close friends All gone and we lost ends Price we pay now to get the trap One by one numbered back to back to back

Tyrant 04:05
Like it woke up But with breath heavy Slouched over felt the weight of a wet machete Drip drip this fixation's on a path Walked it like blacked out thoughts split in half At the will of a tyrant Breaking points are reinforced by aching joints Things hidden but they have a voice Like its hung there Take the day, put another in a sun chair You think that you're getting out? Faith over fear say your prayers And that one will hear you clear? Well which god's which? Takes two just to run this disk In the hands that close the fist Payback's a bitch, like someone snitched Gut your belly, no bandaids, no Nelly Snot infectious yet, but this air seems smelly Another home cooked meal, another heart attack Got the doctor in on the stat, where the cardiacs? Get the paddles quick Body's on the hook for a fix Something bout a flatline, things stay still Yes everything can be forgiven, just kneel So who wants this football as a souvenir, right here Human in the mirror Complex brains can misunderstand direction, One thumb can steer Fourth in bat, paddle tapped across this table Hollow ping pong ball tell me what's not a fable Frowned as I threw the key away I hide my eyes from this The door from which a light emits (I never open up) Forever just a memory I lift my flask and seek To drown. but I am only waste deep (I never open up) No one fell, boy no one hit the ground Well someone spit tobacco on Patsy's wedding gown It was all soiled as the organ quivered Surely you can't ignore these shivers It's pourin out of me like it was supposed to river Yeah these narrow streams they just dont deliver I'll dig a new ditch in less than twentyfour hours But time stands still when you've emptied your powers There's no black magic here, its preimposed fear Implememneted controls all the power's at the rear Push button to start, keep em all keyless Got em, linked up trippin over the roots Yeah they all get an apple, this time from the teacher Cardboard cutouts of families on their phones in the bleachers Your kid's benched starin at feet, studying features Another 30 second viral, all star sneakers Frowned as I threw the key away I hide my eyes from this The door from which a light emits (I never open up) Forever just a memory I lift my flask and seek To drown. but I am only waste deep (I never open up) Felt like he escaped But was it only for a minute? This stream of consciousness has grown since the beginning Well look at his rose, hmm quite deminished Did he fail every test that he was given? Did the reverend come a knockin'? Did some poor people pop in? Was narcicism still and always his biggest problem? Caught starin' into his own reflection Answering all of these questions, no need to mention

Cold Floor 03:03
They seen a different view Saw only what we knew Was it worth it? Check your optical feed Another android's head blown off Puttin' the kid to sleep Now TWS looks like an air pod Page'll need reconstruction Facial scarring ther'll be adjustments Families emotional, misses the butler Dude asks Mary Poppins to hook us some butter As the almost flawless young barista hands us our muffins and coffees Smiles with a twinkle in her eye "Sir newer models, they don't explode" Oh okay, morse code, sure wouldn't ask if the floor was cold Ha, a good chuckle by all, as we hover back into the mall Out of a hardened space Up past the rubble, a distant room Entered as they fled Saw his own reflection scared half to death Was it the missing flesh? Or maybe surprised of how much was left? He sat down and wept Was it worth it? No more nine to five, just to stay alive all it takes is a contribution There are ways to get rich, 'cept now they got robots diggin that ditch Still too many standing around watching, no breaks, no mistakes Something broke, it gets replaced, too many people in my space, was it worth it? Is it worth it? We did it all for you These corporations are still basically formed Locally loyalty raised us, okay left to be creative It was right there edjucate 'em Too much time spent on who hates us We ran right out of patience All the wiser, slower, weightless Feel just slightly weighted, screwed in tight Like they fuckin' got you to the ground You probably tryna catch your breath right now Still breakin new ground, shakin them roots down The present day is filthy, but the new gear doesn't dirty It's all gone techno again, guess you were right Moby Are all these lonely nights the only light side to a very messy life Right? Feeling stressed? Rest. Could it all be alright? Don't believe the hype, Don't don't don't don't believe the hype Was it worth it? To put my heart on the shelf? Be like him? be like you? be like everyone else? Was it worth it? To stab that heart on your sleeve? You wear it there, cause you care, in your chest it feels bare Was it worth it? Was it worth it?

Stallion 04:12
I can only give 'em what's left I can only give 'em what's left My best They say music can heal 'em Tell me you believe it Open up the ceilings cause, we've been here before And I don't need more reasons All about my thesis Kids excel at recess So open up the doors I've been blushin' and gushin' since the cherry popped Big bad beast in the bush, now that's a scary thought I'm not on some sick shit, tramplin' through your lady's fields Im talking bout deep woods, creatures that can make you squeal Vibrant colors, you would swear it's really there Old man I met on the road told me not to stare Captivated, it's got me in a trance, a message in a glance We've met here before I'll wait with one foot in the grave in a foreign place Til' it's all in my head, when I hear it again I'll come around Oh you're in a foreign whip? Well that's the same shit I've been on my black stallion got the reigns stitched Little Sichi hits, ooh that's the feature Hooves trottin' over these keys, word to Alicia Feels like a heater, in a two seater With the one that you like or in the studio huggin' the mic I'm in love with the life, or maybe I might Just be frightened as hell but you could never tell Cause I've been in this fantasy land, wave hi to me You're cast in a real world dream, it's my movie I even got the theme music, let me write to it I'll probably roll out with the credits and no credit Spit front to back with my verses, a few edits Known to go hard on a bitch, you can ask Heather And even if I weren't derranged and less better (My best) Still wouldn't lay down or catch Zs til the last letter They say music can heal 'em Tell me you believe it Open up the ceilings cause, we've been here before And I don't need more reasons All about my thesis Kids excel at recess So open up the doors I'll wait with one foot in the grave in a foreign place Til' it's all in my head, when I hear it again I'll come around I'll wait with one foot in the grave in a foreign place Til' it's all in my head, when I hear it again I'll come around

The Last God 04:21
I spent a thousand minutes, Left the hours drifting, Watch the grass grow I am just a coward listening Never devour pearls But yet the power burns Like I was growin chops still getting my lolipops Feel like everyone around me keeps 'em ducking cherries Couple balls flyin' at ya, hit with a sack of berries You might think we're talkin' dirty really actually fairly Analytical, the truth I speak is often scary A big builder of mole hills into bloody mountains I let it go, a whole palace of frozen water Don't believe in me now, wait for the slaughter A pig roast, el pastor, I've been a ghost Free smoke beathing heavy could levitate Those who can edjucate themselves, yeah well there's no debate We will be the only ones far enough to slip the circle If you get caught up on the inside leave a crushed external Damn Daniel, what is it with you and these rambles? You should go and put on some sandals, This walk it is not for socks Cause we just made it out to the beach, And now they wanna feel with their feet And let the heart take leaps it needs The sand's soft We're talkin' bout the boldest move of your life To set aside all that you're taught right It's not the other we blame all the time Take your mask off And we been going through this shit, like one, two And on the third it's never for you We blackened more than we blue The last god It's power behind the biggest clunk Richer than some chocolate chunks If I date it's double dutch Or I'm on some two for one But I speak in tongues like my father's from the sun And he pulled me out the water like an Inki run Who's the one running shit? Like we've done a hundred flips Stumbling, dizziness Steers a silly ship, sales don't matter It's the current streams and people who still believe in their dreams It's the beast with a snout of steam Starin' down the barel of a loaded pistol Brave enough not to blow the whistle, chew the gristle While sick fucks are harvesting fetus tissue Always a bigger picture, in front of an even bigger figure Time to knock it off before I hit too many triggers Watch the system crash I don't mean a party when I'm talkin' bout a big bash You better empty the cash Sweep away the cookie crumbs You gon' need a bigger drum before the war is done Dum dum We're talkin' bout the boldest move of your life To set aside all that you're taught right It's not the other we blame all the time Take your mask off And we been going through this shit, like one, two And on the third it's never for you We blackened more than we blue The last god Cause I've been walking wounded Eyes droopy and lucid Think everyone's stupid Kidnapped and tortured cupid And then we set 'em on fire
