Track Name: Cards Flipped
I saw you walk right in
Into the brain canal
Chemical wasn't love
But dopamine was involved
Wasn't like the rest
Had no place or crowd
Intrigued me nonetheless
I wanted you right then

Yene Konjo
Alakim
Yanchi Sim
Yene Konjo

So then it started
The art the concept
Of winning a girl over with grace
But certain traits
That I possessed
Didn't have grace in the list
Still I continued
And pursued you
But the closer I got the farther I felt until I was compelled to say

This love ain't what it used to be
Cause you are, just a friend now

That spark was just a memory
Cause you are, just a friend now

Our time together has spread us apart
Cause you are, just a friend now

Abyss between us is too large to cross
Cause you are, just a friend now

Yea you are just a friend now
Get gone Get gone (HEY HEY)



When
am
I
Gonna learn that mistakes the stakes driven into my chest
Leave wounds that'll be filled in with lead
So it's with a heavy heart I sense I gotta restart the process
Too complex
To put into words so I allude to what I try to pursue
A companion that won't refuse advances
One that I see the chances of attaining
But the process taints my confidence
I'm fencing her away and fighting to make her stay
But I haven't fucked up enough to know how to progress I guess

She's just another tally until I've found success
But what I've learned is that success isn't getting what you want

It's getting what you need
And what you're gonna need is me


This love ain't what it used to be
Cause you are, just a friend now

That spark was just a memory
Cause you are, just a friend now

Our time together has spread us apart
Cause you are, just a friend now

Abyss between us is too large to cross
Cause you are, just a friend now

Yea you are just a friend now
Yea
You
Are
Just
A
Friend
To me now
Track Name: Spiritual Gorilla Steals Your Zen
Varial gunshot
No I cannot stop
With the metaphysical
Spiritual
Turned in
To reality
Lyrical Brutality
With a strong surge of vitality

I quest how to stop this enigma
Would be easier to pull the trigger
As my life grows bigger
Like the wallet of a gold digger
Talent achieved through vigor


Rippin and slippin with the flow
I embed this in ya like an embryo
Yo the rhyme is sharper than the claws of a crow
I'm not gonna blow or slow the flow that I control
Earn some dough
But not like a hoe
Cause this is the rhyme that be taking the throne
Call me Kanye, I steal the spotlight
Call me Jay, and I work the track right
Rhyme against the grain it's not the same
Fuck the fame it's the game that I play for
I rip up a beat for you to enjoy
I'm a Pseudo-Sadist
I give out joy


Etheral Primate Pilfers Zen
Etheral Primate Pilfers Zen
While your soul be livin up in a state of dread
He takes
Your peace and leaves it for dead

The goal of the being is to cause global strife
Bodies piling up
Yes the cities be burnin bright
The scariest thing that chills to the bone
Is that demon is a part of our core

Now this just is
The end of the song
Track Name: The Masks That Bind
I am the lord's reaper incarnate
Shiva and Hades tremble in my wake and now
Awake and breathing I am finally alive
Can't quantify why my mood is so right
After
The stress of daily life pushed me
Over the edge
Now I pray for those in my path
I'm the wrath of a typhoon
Wrath of a black man
I will rip my enemies
Tendon by tendon
Make them suffer
(Until they've reached)
Heavenly Kingdom

Make them suffer until they've reached
Heavenly Kingdom
(You know where)

Suffer like a child
With no mother
Fry like the cloth of Viet Cong as I napalm our
Entire fucking world
Watching everything you and I love burn
This is hell in our universe
This verse captures you
Snatches you
Detaches your extremities one by one
Until you're a ragdoll
Not able
To produce any
Children
This verse
Sickens anyone sane
So no wonder
I get giddy

Reading this daily
Reading this daily
Reading this daily

HOHOHOHAHAHAHA


Se-Se-Se-Se-Se-Se-Set
Setting myself aflame
I'm a lighter burning myself alive for a sense of calm
Suicide is not what my methods are called
Reached out to God and
Found
My
Answer
Told myself to be stronger than anyone around me
These Fuckboys
In the vicinity
Making me look like divinity
Bastards can't even perceive me
Much less even be near me


In the dead of night
In four or five we each donned
THE MASKS THAT BIND
We took a path to your hideout
To wipe out your people and
Stake your land
Take back what
Was taken from the peaceful people
Fight back the
Red evil
No sequel to this madness we will
Lead you on
An exodus
That won't be peaceful cause we will have
What is called
The final
Solution
(And on to the breakdown)


(Breaker Breaker)
(Yea we got a problem on 20th ave)
(Can you please get down there)
(To clean up and mop up)
(The shit)


I deviate from the state of mind that consequences stagnation of creation
The state of the nation is parallel
To the life of the written rhyme
If I don't practice we may die
Lifeline between the pen and I
Life lies in the stroke inside
(Life lies in the stroke inside)

The pen is the impregnator
The book is an open womb
Both ready to consummate
Both willin to mate
Both ready to create
And if stars will align at the right time
Maybe the product
Will conduct
Our nation to a new age
A Brave New World all stemmed from one piece of my brain stem
That was hurled
From the heights of my mind
Too high to quantify
The repercussions of eternal peace
Of Soma bottles
Of thought police
That roam the streets
And if the child ain't raised right
They'll beat blacks exclusively

But we got beats to fight back with
We got beats to fight back with

Thought suppression will end
Ill rhyme is the cure to
This sickness
A child that is
Swift and righteous
He might just
Fight for us

Not just us for justice one kid


The Masks That Bind
Track Name: Hatred Ends
Back in the day when all I did was play
When I never opened these eyes to see the grey
Never thought once to even pray
To thank god that we were okay

As I reminisce back to my days
As a child they were lively but had pain
Even when it seemed that I hit the bottom
Took in misery and made myself stronger

But at least I could say the pain was nothing compared to what the world was going through

Evil committed in the macro and micro
No matter the size a vicious cycle

I realized then that all acts of hate built on one another
To answer darkness you don't need darkness you need light
To fight spite, to bring what's right
A salve to the coagulation of evil cause we've bled all the good that's in us
Make a change to bring your good nature back

Stop with the Hate
Cause he has it worse

Stop with the Hate
Don't make the world worse

Stop with the Hate
That's your own people

Stop with the Hate
They are your equal


Hid away from my plights under the night sky
Cause I thought I was too weak to bring change
Change the world to what I dreamed
I saw

Blacks
Whites
Asians
People of all types

All livin in harmony with no plights
This is what I wanted for the rest of my life
Cause I thought equality would bring peace
Until
Reality
Shattered that dream

Cause I knew perfect utopias were impossible due to human nature
Also bet on the fact that within every negative
There's gotta be a positive

For every corrupt cop murdering innocents
There are a couple of brave cops waiting to save lives
For every bomber burning out lives there is a fighter of the flame
For every man wanting to harm all
There are men defending and sacrificing all
Just for the fact that there can be a counter
Hate wont stand a chance if we stand against


Stop with the Hate
Cause he has it worse

Stop with the Hate
Don't make the world worse

Stop with the Hate
That's your own people

Stop with the Hate
They are your equal


There is a war raging in us all
A war of benevolence and malevolence
One dark and the cause of misfortune
One light and the bringer of hope
All of us have this choice to make
Which one we choose to be the victor
The one we choose to feed will emerge
The one we choose becomes the world

Give love to the world


STOP WITH THE HATE
Track Name: Quasar Meltdown
For many centuries
Deities have been trying to kill me
Enemies of my state of mind
They try to end me by killing my mind
But I jump through lives
Being reincarnated each time
Into a new life
Last of my old kind
Killed by the divine
Born from the starlight
Had a large birthright
It was gonna be the universe
But the gods had a worse gift in mind

It was genocide of my race
The Starchilds of the forth quadrant of space
The gods had said
"We refuse to break bread with you beings of hatred"
(and they had a point)
We disregarded organism
And caused schisms
In many civilizations
Many nations have sunk into the deep end
Due to our interference
And now we pay the price
With our life


A Quasar Meltdown
A Quasar Meltdown
The same thing that gave us life took it in one night

A Quasar Meltdown
A Quasar Meltdown
The same thing that gave us life gave us a good fright
Track Name: Ego (Don't Let The Ego Eat You Alive)
This aint a song about love or hate
But it's easy to make that mistake
This is apathy and fear of no feeling
Worried that the emotions have no motion inside my being
But being this way has its ups and downs
Thankfully
I'm not in mental turmoil
But I'm losing my sentimental side
It's like a sentinel is blocking the good and bad from my eye

Stopping synapses in my head from firing at each other
Like mutual suicide
Chemicals have no effect
Defective
My heart is synonymous to embers of a dead hearth
Breathless
Maybe the universe in my mind has reached entropy
Maybe black holes ate away at stars completely

It sounds depressing but don't get it twisted
I just feel empty
Don't feel sympathy for me because I'm the cause for my own loss of
Humanity


Oh yes I'm falling under now
To find the apple of my eye
Oh yes I'm falling under now
Where do we go


Fast forward one year to the present
Life's so grand
I've outlasted my madness
It's why I stand today
There were just six words that I
Needed to say

Fuck the past
I'm moving forward
Life won't go on till I restart
Fuck the past and I'm moving forward

Now there's silver lining in everything
It gives me a wealth
To feel like
A king


Oh yes I'm falling under now
To find the apple of my eye
Oh yes I'm falling under now
Where do we go


Sometimes it may seem like the world hates you
Breaks through your will
And tries to kill your
Sanity
Tragically
The truth is the universe won't care
If you disappear
So stop fearing life
And the ones around you
Cause those are the ones that give a damn about you
So let them in

Give your love around
Give it around

Oh yes I'm falling under now
To find the apple of my eye
Oh yes I'm falling under now
Where do we go
