Track Name: Intro
I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe...Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those...moments...will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time...to die
Track Name: Riot Away
We were born to die runnin
Journeymen adrenaline junkies
We know the smoke will catch us stumbled
What a wonder for honeybees
We fought with knowledge of the cost of the sting
Buzz of velocity
Songs of those been lost for the queen
Living fossils starving to speak
Unconsciously breathing
Til the pollen that we sifted’s
Blown
gone from the heathens
But these honeycomb homes will last beyond what we see
Then we will leave our wax and plastic
In the streets
Processed;
Caught in a sleep
Turn to the freeze
Burning for seeds
The sum is even
Growing past a saccarhine need
Indeed I’m attracted to weakness, wait
Or maybe just the strength it takes to show it
We all hide in our hive minds
I’d die to be open
Overexposed photo finishes
Living commotion
Wings and our press clippings kept
For these drifting devotions, look
They say you need to shine
With incandescence
But I’m comfortable with grime
And I will shine with imperfections

This is for those who wear their switchblades plain in their stab wounds
Who play in the shadows
For them who know their scars makes em human
Unmarred skin is illusion

They will know us from the tracks we leave in the ash of our days
Pyroclastic remains
We collapse our restraints
Hold no attraction to safety
Our lungs filled with fire and clay
To live and die in pompeii
We will shine in our graves
Riot away

The road to perdition is written in calm
Swift to embalm
Second wind of the gone
Singing soft
We don’t need no photoshops
They want Nirvana in a heart shaped box
But these devils wear prada
So our gods are the lost
Our scriptures in the witnessing of
Hymnals and songs, right?
Bearing our crosses
So aware of our faults
Unembarrassed to fall
We share the scars on our hearts
Not the type to wait for jumper cables
Carry our sparks
So we set flames to the midnight oil
Words coiled and raw
Striking matches over our urban sprawl
In the dark
In our roots we always saw
That all thoughts fall apart
We return to the soil
That we fought at the start
So the days start to blur and one day we’ll be gone
So I’m not worried ‘bout living it wrong
I’m gripping it strong
Living simple as my word is my bond
I will go but my work will live on

They will know us from the tracks we leave in the ash of our days
Pyroclastic remains
We collapse our restraints
Hold no attraction to safety
Our lungs filled with fire and clay
To live and die in pompeii
We will shine in our graves
Riot away
Track Name: Smoke (feat. Otis Apollo)
Streetlights are blurring
Swerving on the curve to 94
and my tank is burning currency
been yearnin to explore
My thieves are thick as syrup
When the flurries start to swarm
roll roll the windows up
Blow the smoke to keep us warm

I wanna breathe hot carcinogens
and litter where my liver is
Sophisticated ignorance
When enlisted by civilians
Complicated witlessness
Envision it brilliant
Picture me pi-pimping with the dividends of
militant indifference
Numbness in my signature
Sharpness in my synonyms
I’m starving for the art of war
And studied insignificance
Lifted off a perfect 5th
Augmented off diminished trips
Where pens pop off like ritalin
Just to get less intimate
And sinners simply trippin
Off the visions that they
listenin
to when they propagated
cut the costs and
karma oscillates
Sold for foolish gold
til the coast is washed away
Focused on that soft decay
Ciroc bottles calm to chase
til our bodies drop to graves
and all the flock is lost in space
Solder on through range
And change
velocity to automate
Posturing like gold leaf with
Composing posed as honesty
So we don’t gotta concentrate
On roads with our lobotomies

Streetlights are blurring
Swerving on the curve to 94
and my tank is burning currency
been yearnin to explore
My thieves are thick as syrup
When the flurries start to swarm
roll roll the windows up
Blow the smoke to keep us warm

Can’t really rush another puff, my lungs might bust and crumple up.
Them suckers’ just ain’t had enough, I tell those two to toughen up.
The slow pull holds mo blunt in but it’s days I’m taking pain for what?
No new highs, the games corrupt; they criminalized our names to make us
work inside some prison given no wages bad livin.
Modern age slavery hidden in our convoluted system.
Still we don’t listen, brush it off whenever it’s mentioned,
skip the pension with incentive of quick money and connections.
So welcome to the party. This is hardly what we asked em for:
Some back and forth quick smack and go like Cassius throw.
“Copped some liq to let it go.” liver sick slogan national
when every rap actor trash they own and advocate no action for
a difference. Since they given this beautiful life for livin
simple circular incisions with a pencil got us pissin poor.
Tryin to live like they do, crack my brews and Grey Goose.
Sippin this addiction til we’re gone.

Streetlights are blurring
Swerving on the curve to 94
and my tank is burning currency
been yearnin to explore
My thieves are thick as syrup
When the flurries start to swarm
roll roll the windows up
Blow the smoke to keep us warm

Drop the p from pride
and property is my asylum
Catch me vibin off the silence
Ride or die perfected science
Rollin like papyrus
And my soul is light as pilot
Flying flowing poems in motion
that I won’t remember writin
Sliding coasting on the potency
Signing off the climate
Weight is in my eyelids
Stay unstable towards horizons
What it take to rise?
I’m incapable of drivin safe
I lie awake
And hibernate
Til I find my place
On dryer banks
Mississippi always seems to whistle
On the fire escape
So escape is fire
Til heart rates
Are in time with pace
Defibrillated chambers
Shifting vision artificial angst
Just another symptom
Of the fish in tanks
Swim in place
Rodents run to stay in shape
Buying mazes layaway
Lasers live to sate the flame
Subsistence to
Remain to stay
Syncopate or sink in faith
That safety lives up in a cage
Resting in a riot
Autopilot driven fate

Streetlights are blurring
Swerving on the curve to 94
and my tank is burning currency
been yearnin to explore
My thieves are thick as syrup
When the flurries start to swarm
roll roll the windows up
Blow the smoke to keep us warm
Track Name: Nike iD
These dunks
First got em when I was fourteen
Custom iDs
Abyss written on the sneaks
Name I was spitting under
Embroidered the dream
Wanted to grow into em
So I ordered em too big
I wore these for my first real show
They’ve borne me through the blood sweat tears
And the snow
Whether the warmth of stage lights
Or midnights 12 below
We’ve been through too much
For me to expect them to glow
They’re imperfect
Scuffed here and creased there
But so am I, so I don’t see need for repair
All they are is fabric laces rubber and dye
And all I am is more than just the sum of some eyes
So I think they’re divine
My single little tribute to the gods of design
What I’m tryna say is I don’t give a fuck if they shine
They’re one of a kind
As long as they’re mine

(And the Nikes on my feet keep my cypher complete)

I got a closet full of white nikes
That I don’t keep clean
Immaculate fabric
Is useless to me
Used to try to look clean
Down to the shoes I would peep
Never stopping to question
Whether my kicks reflected me
It’s funny
How clothes cover insecurities
And yet the same filthy stains keep on resurfacing
So I scuff up my kicks
Tryin to kick the disease
Don’t wanna put on a pedestal
What belongs on my feet
These days
I lace up my identity
Pop my tongue out of jeans
And double knot my memories
Those days
My soul was protection from enemies
Now the canvas that matters
Is mental
Resembles me
To my identity I pledge my allegiance
The expression I weave in the threads I wear is freedom
And stained white nikes keep my cypher completed
If you can’t join em, then you shouldn’t try to be em

(And the Nikes on my feet keep my cypher complete)

I don’t care if your kicks are the new airs
You wear your rhythms bare
On the kicks and the snares
You too will suffer the slings and arrows
Can’t scarecrow the sparrows
Or keep yourself sterile
So stop trying
Revel in the dirtiness
You are worth more than the sum of your purchases
Sure you could take elegance over earnestness
But I promise you it won’t help you find the right words to fit
your shoe size
Track Name: Testament (feat. Soraya Sebghati)
I spit with old testament decadence
I’m the best in the vestments
In confessional blessing the
Truth to tenement tenants
No illusions in penitence
Now the students the reverend
The breath is catching heavy
Flooding levees with no temperance n
I got a Noah flow
Ark is for the poets
so let there be sparks
in the darkness so exposed n
I’m a david to goliath
And the sling is set in motion
Poet moses to the slaves
And I been known to part the oceans
What’s all the commotion surrounding exodus
Motherfuck some quoted senescence
I’m on that resurrection tip
I embody holy spirit
In lyrics
I’m immortal when performing
So mere death I’ve never feared it
This is nicene pipe dream creed that
You’re hearing
Gospel to these apostles
And they flock to the meaning
I’m redefining what it means to be believed in
I’m headed for the top
And damn the path is lookin scenic
Better believe it

So throw your hands up to the sky
We’ll show you what it means to testify
The way we rise is seeming so divine
We flow our testaments for newer times

My scripture got vision
Because obscurity’s perdition
I emerged from absurdity
Like divine intervention
I got a drive to ascend
With a science darker than guinness
So I’m alchemic mixing
Till I’m moutin mount olympus
And the sound is not repetitious
I’m endowed with some significance
Exorcising revenants
They bow and show some deference
Learned it from the best
And I worship at fifth element
Celestial wrecking flows
With a deity’s presence
Technique is impeccable
Ineffable perception
Hell and heaven what you make em
We don’t wait for ascension
I’m wrathful as a god
You don’t wanna test my temperament
Might wanna start pressing up your epitaphs
I got camaraderie with mephistopheles
Raps rearrange cosmology
Every time that I drop on beats
These songs I spit are practically like psalms to me
So I make music my mythology

So throw your hands up to the sky
We’ll show you what it means to testify
The way we rise is seeming so divine
We flow our testaments for newer times
Track Name: Let Me See
In My Sleep
Let Me See
Let Me Breathe
Let Me Be

I’m in consumerisms temple on it’s holy day
Holding close visions of our Rome
Encultured throwaways
Homogeneic escapes on occasion
But cicadas don’t notice their own cadence
The MOA is fragrant with the taste of desperation
Probably why I hated the near minimum wages
These waves shift around me, worshipping the sound of it all
Been flying but I’m bound to be fallen
Lost in the awe
Currency; a human sacrifice
With the silver in our eyes for the afterlife
These serpents look to rattle right
We’re circling like satellites
Drifting intermissions
When the neon seems to magnetize...
Magnesium entrancing
Flash of falling angels and the thrill of crash landings
We could ride to heaven on these escalators
Trapping in our nesting papers

In My Sleep
Let Me See
Let Me Breathe
Let Me Be

I’m living saturated fashions
Modern day balancing
Posing so extravagant
Until the smoke unraveling
Bound to spin out
Fighting gilded wars off shallow metals
East of eden
Golden apples are our passions

I’m living saturated fashions
Modern day balancing
Posing so extravagant
Until the smoke unraveling
Bound to spin out
Fighting gilded wars off shallow metals
East of eden
Silver apples are our status symbols
Track Name: Under The Sunshine (feat. Chantz Erolin)
I had to stop smoking weed cause of panic attacks
Overstimulated mindstate but I’m handling that
Gotta stay fly but try to keep my mannequins matte
Propellers on blast
Pseudo kamikaze tracks
Mastered art of the crash
Now I’m carving a path
In a dive bomb calm
I’m a product of flash
And they tell me that I’m living too fast
Homie I trip the lights fantastic
In whichever city I’m at
Grew up in two homes
Now it’s Cali to Minnesota
Drinking water out of solo cups
And worried I ain’t sober enough
Lifestyles of the glamorous amorous
animalistically depicted kids
nah we aint soberin up
Life on the edge
Close for comfort
What would it take to trip
I wonder
For now it’s swerve in the sun
Saving sleep for the summer
Living American dreams
With my saturated color schemes

Say AY
Sleep when your dead
Say OH
If you live on the edge
Say AY
Til youre dripping with sweat
We get it in
We get it in

So raise a glass if you’ll sleep when you’re dead
If your livers full of liquor and you live on the edge
Burning wicks at both ends
Til you’re drippin with sweat
We get it in
But we’re not getting out of this mess

Under the Red White and Blue
Daisy Cutter Buchanens
I’m cutting smooth as my silver tongue
On the way to her backbone
She likes it rougher then her whisky
Got a taste for the risky and the sex of come and get me’s
Living simply off the weight of the stress
Couldn’t stand the winter so I took the plane to the west
So grab an L and take flight
Red eyes hiding in plain sight
Under the Sunshine
Track Name: Supernatural
Yo- my flow is supernatural
I’m posted where the ghosts is and
Your crew is so intangible
I’m a poltergeist precocious
And the quotes are so invokable
foes comatose and broken
Feeling fear inside their bone marrow

Yo- my flow is supernatural
I’m posted where the ghosts is and
Your crew is so intangible
I’m a poltergeist precocious
And the quotes are so invokable
foes comatose and broken
Feeling fear inside their bones

My crew is necromantic phantoms
And the demons in the samplers
We the static in the phone lines when you scream without an answer
We the shamans to the lyrics
And the spirits know to fear it
We the feeling in your bones
When your foes all reappearin
We are motherfucking fresh out the casket
You bastards casting the magic
Tryna find ways to combat us
These rappers aggravate the madness
But I gravitate masses
Fashion follows my back
And rapping the new black so
Think you above average then come at us
You get sentenced to decapitation acting the baddest
Imagine the worst nightmare
You’ve had in the past n
It’ll straight come to pass when Killstreak’s coming atcha
collapsin spines cracking
Casualties vanish
All the latest signs
That you crept out of kansas
You’d better get some new vandals
Because I’m as deadly as cancer
Rappers get canned like some campbells
We some mothafuckin cannibals

I’m a poltergeist when I’m holding mics
invoking ghosts and colder nights
Potent potions overdosed
The nightmares in your dozing fright
When I’m known to write
Spit hocus pocus
With precocious sight
Cobra strike the mic with dopeness
G.I. Joes can’t soldier right
Ghostbusters in comas
We ominous when we grabbing mic
We snatch em from the afterlife
They sleepless in seattle right
We’re baptised in these battles
N these campers looking rattled
While I’m telling tales by tallow
Til I’m shadowed in the candlelight
And the heads all look astounded
That I practice human sacrifice
Bitch I’m underground and savage
Ravage battlers and the fans alike
They stay in the daze for half the night
I eat the mics with half a bite
Uncaged outta sight and
Slay with the spite
These seance mongers
Stay in the lights
I’m craving the fight
We rage in the night
No haters stay unscathed when I write
No fakers can be brave with a geist
I’m living my life
On the blade of a knife
I kill when I like
Blood spills and they fright
You already a carcass
Bark and no bite
Starving for mine
With a heart fulla grime
I’m reaching to climb
Gimme piece of the pie
Heart freezin inside
Breathing heat when I fly
I’m a dragon
sprayin flame
A pagan
Stayin wagging
Laying tracks
In decaying matter
Breaking rappers
Backs I’m Bane
I’m back in black to maim
the wack and
drain their brains like aspartame
My banshees pray for wraiths
Until my army of the damned is raised
My acolytes get accolades
And traffic lights get smacked away
Gabes hats stay blast like cannonades
Matchsticks set the track ablaze
And gas is packed in every phrase
bad magic you can’t pray away
Bruce banner wrapped in gamma rays

Yo- my flow is supernatural
I’m posted where the ghosts is and
Your crew is so intangible
I’m a poltergeist precocious
And the quotes are so invokable
foes comatose and broken
Feeling fear inside their bone marrow

Yo- my flow is supernatural
I’m posted where the ghosts is and
Your crew is so intangible
I’m a poltergeist precocious
And the quotes are so invokable
foes comatose and broken
Feeling fear inside their bones
Track Name: Prophylactics
There’s a package of prophylactics
In the back of my car
Plastic protection for penetration
pressed through our hearts
manufactured to mask madness
And combat the pasts of ours
with a simple course of action
but they’re still wrapped in the box

So FUCK
I’m a slave to abrasion
Shaped by the craven
State of my age and
Try to get a breath through miasmas
Step to inflections away from my ways and I’m
Trapped in displays
The raps couldn’t save the
Fact that I’m anxious
Why attack the world
When the fact is it’s dangerous?
My beta ass is still scrapin
To find a pasture to graze in
I must’ve mastered evasion
Cause I can’t snatch what I’m chasin
The passion erasin
backbone inflamed lackin the patience
Backed in a slave ship
Can’t sustain it
Then the motherfucking shame hits

Predators pray
Never to say
Prey’s wakes
We’d be blamed
Its better to wait
Now I gotta get my head on straight
its been severed and plated
cauterize these veins
til hermorrage abates n
the palpatations
Are twisting motivations misshapen
Dangerous summations
Escapin paralyzation
But I’m just fated to fade n
Fileed by my own aimlessness
I can’t be creative
All I am is imitation
And my fishbowl betrayed me
I keep my id conversating
While my egos parading
All these canines may bay at moonshine
But reflections is chasing
And these great whites teeth break mics
Not praising
Or hatin
Not sure if jesus or satan
Or man no complications
I just know what I need
And how I can’t seem to take it
my bullshit is so fragrant
it fuckin smells like propane
call it a slow flame
roasting
so pained
Brain posts up in these chains
I know this shit doesn’t matter
But it’s such an emotional game
Pheromones run cold through my veins
And go explode through my fangs
So FUCK

There’s a package of prophylactics
In the back of my car
Plastic protection for penetration
pressed through our hearts
manufactured to mask madness
And combat the pasts of ours
with a simple course of action
but they’re still wrapped in the box
Track Name: Collateral Damage (feat. Guante)
TONY:
We live in safe houses
Never speaking out loud
All our plans are laid on paper
And the makers disavowed
They call us traitors
Fatal if we’re figured out
Strangled by the nation
We make bombs in our house
And fight Bradburyian firemen
With a fire inside us
And the cinders rise lighter
Than environments tired
To retire is sipping cyanide
Tapped through the wires
Rather fucking explode
Than perspire desires

We’ve got acquired taste for fertilizer
Serving our ire
Murders are turbulence
We use to burn silence
There’s truth behind violence
They don’t want you to find it
If you sell your soul for rubles
We’ll get brutal in defiance
We sip molotovs
In the bars that confine us
They put drinks in our hands
Dro used to keep us quiet
Made one mistake
Booze blows when ignited
So we took our little pilot lights
Incited bigger riots
No ski masks
We some fitted cap militants
Criminals indifferent
To civilians living ignorant
They stuff themselves with novacaine
To cope with pain and slow their brains
They cuff themselves with polled charades
To pose parades
Too broke to save
We’re not afraid to pull blades
To break states, you gotta break a few eggs
So we stay with AKs
Spray tracers at heads
Pardon the mess
But we can’t just lay in our deathbeds

GUANTE:
And I just want to go home
But my home is haunted
My heart is weak
Feel a little spill out every time that I speak (speak on it)
I just want to go home
But my home is haunted
It’s like 21 and a Wake Up
Waking up to the inside of a coffin

I can’t call it (I can’t call it)
I can’t call it (No, I can’t call it)
I just want to go home
But the ghosts ain’t talkin
Nobody’s talkin
Feel like I’m fallin
Feel like I’m fallin
Feel like I’m fallin
Feel like I’m fallin

TONY:
But bloodstains linger in my fingertips
And lips don’t forget the taste of innocence
The scent of pure fear is unforgettable
I’ve seen every schoolyard can be a killing field
And you hear the cries of dying children
Knowing you put the bomb in the building
But I swear to god I’m not the villain here
I just can’t live my life sitting still in fear
Even moses told slaves kill sheep
So I murder infants who still asleep
I can’t care if I’m slaughtering their dreams
Wounds cauterize, end’s worth the means
Sometimes to kill disease you gotta scheme
And amputate the dead limbs with gangrene
I refuse to worship at any idol’s feet
So we preach in IEDs and gasoline

Collateral damage is a vow to insanity
A phantom that they champion
to damn us more radically
But I will canvas the mansions
abandon humanity
Before I let these kings
Hold me ransom and vanish me
Where there’s fire there’s smoke
Hold a candle to vanities
Quote the smoke signals
to the proles with profanity
Kill people, burn shit, fuck schools
And all the tools they use to keep you from truth
Cut your heart out in the booth
If you keep it in your chest its no use
Stop counting sheep and slit throats
Plebeians screaming for the kings to get ghost
Abandon reality, we don’t fucking watch thrones
We will rebuild the factories with bones
So fuck it, if you really think the cause is worth headstones
Quit making music, wear bombs ‘stead of headphones

GUANTE:
And I just want to go home

Track Name: Tyson
The first thing I ever loved was a bird
Chose flight when the fight was immersive
Saw life unalike from the worms
Flew free from the dirt with a purpose
When her wing bones cracked so infirm
I cradled her curves
And my nerves burned wordless
Dumb with the courage
Numb from the first kiss
Takin my first breaths
Under the surface
Fluid in my lungs
And my heart in my head
Reckless and young
You can rest when you’re dead
And we step to the sins
And begin black magic
seizing moments
To seem less passive
Used to method act to deter the attachments
Trapped as a splash of paint on the canvas
Now I live in words, can’t help but be candid
Still fragile as her heat on my mattress

First time I drew blood for her safety
Patient in the wingspan, love for the changelings
Born in warm chains singing songs that the slaves sing
Never sensing the safety I had was escaping
Unrestrained as the daybreak shade
When it wakes with the first of the flames
Night is so tame
Brightness is painful
We cling to our knives just to try and stay stable
Living out the fable
That love is respect
But love is a shotgun pressed to your head
Forces you to bend
and contort with the winds
And conform to the spins
That the world will beset
Defensive intents
Can get bent to the ends
Tangled with the tension
of air we ascend
When your bones light as the breeze on your skin
Wax wings catch heat and the freefall begins

Here we are
Burning up in our cars
And in our hearts
Better days
Sleeping late with our headaches
Perfect weather
Congregate
Lay in wait for an answer
We're still waiting
Grit your teeth
The lucky taste as the day breaks
The blind are leading the blind

The first time I drew blood for protection
And the second I drew blood from the tears
The third time I drew blood for respect
The last time I drew blood to disappear
I’m at the end of my road of good intentions
Where hindsight makes it all stand clear
Wish I knew when I built the defenses
That the worst things always come from your fears

The first time I drew blood for protection
And the second I drew blood from the tears
The third time I drew blood for respect
The last time I drew blood to disappear
I’m at the end of my road of good intentions
Where hindsight makes it all stand clear
Wish I knew when I built the defenses
That the worst things always come from your fears

Settle up my head
Level with my flesh
Steady up my breaths
Sketch it in my pen
Embed it in my skin
I will tell it how I live
I will yell it to the wind
I will let it pull me in
Fix up my wings
I will sing
I will see what the daybreak brings
Until I drop dead
And then I will step
Until my fists rest
Until my soul glows like tips of cigarettes

Settle up my head
Level with my flesh
Steady up my breaths
Sketch it in my pen
Embed it in my skin
i will tell it how I live
I will yell it to the wind
I will let it pull me in
Fix up my wings
I will sing
I will see what the daybreak brings
Til I drop dead
And then I will step
Until my fists rest
Until my soul glows like tips of cigarettes

Settle up my head
Level with my flesh
Steady up my breaths
I will never hurt again
Embed it in my skin
I will tell it how I live
I will yell it to the wind
I will let it pull me in
Fix up my wings
I will sing
I will see what the daybreak brings
Til I drop dead
And then I will step
We sink til we swim
And we all fall awake in the end
