1. Hand Grenade

VERSE 1
Is it only in our graves that we'll remember

spawning ages, hidden in the dust?
The earth speaks volumes

of a people long gone and a struggle to find the rhythm

in everything that breathes and moves around me

CHORUS
Yeah, we get it
- you've got a lot to say

You won't catch me with my face in your hand grenades

I expected to find a better way
You won't catch me with some dumb ape in retrograde

face in your hand grenades

VERSE 2
Is it only in our pain that we surrender

to the Timeless?
Remind us of the gold within the grave

Let the ways we grow match the steps we take

and the love we reap match the hearts we break

CHORUS
Yeah, we get it
- you've got a lot to say

You won't catch me with my face in your hand grenades

I expected to find a better way
You won't catch me with some dumb ape in retrograde

face in your hand grenades

BRIDGE

In love with my sweet parasite

In the dark, dead things appear alive

In the passenger's seat, left fear to drive

Watch me watch my whole life pass me by

OUTRO
Yeah, we get it
- you've got a lot to say

You won't catch me with my face in your hand grenades

I expected to find a better way
You won't catch me with some dumb ape in retrograde

Yeah, we get it - you've got a lot to say

You won't catch me with my face in your hand grenades

I expected to find a better way
You won't catch me with some dumb ape in retrograde

face in your hand grenades

face in those fucking hand grenades

3. End of Days

VERSE 1
This world took my heart, my soul and all my feelings
Go the hell or pray to a god I don't believe in
Angels tried to fly my way and hit the ceiling

'Till I see its' wings myself I won't believe it

CHORUS
and then they told me:
"Son, how could you compromise

the golden light your heart divides?

Can you feel your Karma coming back

to you?"

VERSE 2
Passed down through ancestral lines of darkened ages

Blood would stain the streets and swords of holy sages

Two eyes shut, a third eye blind and minds in cages

As the old world crumbles, so the new world rages

CHORUS

and then they told me:
"Son, how could you compromise

the golden light your heart divides?

Can you feel your Karma coming back

to you?"


BRIDGE

Eight dried grams of psilocybin one fine evening

Freedom from the cycles or doomed to repeat them?
Angels from the other side with gold hearts beaming

'Til I see their wings, oh I can't wait to meet them

CHORUS

and then they told me:
"Son, how could you compromise

the golden light your heart divides?

Can you feel your Karma coming back

to you?"

5. Bitter

VERSE 1
I went out wearing shoes

I came back in the nude

The story must be true

I saw it on the news
Woah-oh, woah-oh, woah-oh-oh-oh
I party on the ledge

the places that I dread

The faces that I've shed

forgot about their pledge
Woah-oh, woah-oh, woah-oh-oh-oh

PRE-CHORUS
Don't wake me 'till the moment the cold wind's blowing in

Don't shake me from the warmth of the tube

I'm not in the mood for dying next to you

CHORUS
It all looks the same to me

Selling lies through a blind man's melody

Why would I give it up for free

in the land of hope and opportunity?

It all looks the same to me

Selling lies through a blind man's melody

Why would I give it up for free

in the land of hope and opportunity?

 

VERSE 2
I live here in my bed

I don't know what she said

My face is going red

I messed it up again
Woah-oh, woah-oh, woah-oh-oh-oh
The story's coming loose

We just lost the caboose

I don't know what to do

I'll leave it up to you
Woah-oh, woah-oh, woah-oh-oh-oh

PRE-CHORUS
Don't wake me 'till the moment the cold wind's blowing in

Don't shake me from the warmth of the tube

I'm not in the mood for dying next to you

CHORUS
It all looks the same to me

Selling lies through a blind man's melody

Why would I give it up for free

in the land of hope and opportunity?

It all looks the same to me

Selling lies through a blind man's melody

Why would I give it up for free

in the land of hope and opportunity?

OUTRO
The lines between us must be severed

I'm not holy and I'm not bitter

The world's on fire so cry me a river

A world without you would be a lot better

The lines between us must be severed

I'm not holy and I'm not bitter

The world's on fire so cry me a river

A world without you would be a lot better

2. Reflections

VERSE 1
What you hate about me is what you hate about you

Take the mirror off the wall and hold it up to you
I keep it polished and clean so you can get a good view

You cover up your scars with your hate, I wear 'em like a tattoo

So close the curtains while you're eating fondue

Filling up that hole in your soul, but in the end it won't do
I've got a mouth full of shade

but don't worry, ain't talking about you

Don't worry ain't talking about you

CHORUS
What I see in you, what you see in me

are the reflections of what's hiding underneath

but it's alright, asleep for the car ride

What I see in you, what you see in me

are the reflections of what's hiding underneath

but it's alright, asleep for the car ride or awake


VERSE 2
So if you say you want brain

pick up a book, you're a dummy

You spend too much time watching TV
CNN with your mommy
I call you out of concern to ask if your fridge is running

so when I drink your beer later, it'll be even more yummy
Ain't trying to be funny man, I just ran over a bunny

You didn't catch me crying though, I'm just cutting up an onion

I came to bathe in the sun, I can't admit that I'm wrong

because my ego's too big and my head is too strong

So fuckin' eh...

When honesty is so out of character

you parrot the parrot, limit the narrative in America

So hypocritical, somewhat apolitical

I don't care if your green's off the street or if it's medical

My flow's so sick I gotta pass around a bucket

Haters getting fried like a little Chicken McNugget, c'mon...
You need a miracle to see me coming

Even in death, my soul will haunt you to the grave

 

CHORUS
What I see in you, what you see in me

are the reflections of what's hiding underneath

but it's alright, asleep for the car ride

What I see in you, what you see in me

are the reflections of what's hiding underneath

but it's alright, asleep for the car ride or awake

VERSE 3

That was a nice try, that almost deserved a high-five

Acting a fool but you're really such a nice guy

Clown with the big shoes on

and you really just can't see yourself offending anyone

No, you're just a little ray of sun licking the fondue off the table

We can tell that you starve,

the way you eat up the fable and chew

Those insecurities must've started glaring

That explains why you can't stop staring

OUTRO

What you hate about me is what you hate about you

Take the mirror off the wall and hold it up to you
I keep it polished and clean so you can get a good view

You cover up your scars with your hate, I wear 'em like a tattoo

So close the curtains while you're eating fondue

Filling up that hole in your soul, but in the end it won't do
I've got a mouth full of shade

but don't worry, ain't talking about you

Don't worry ain't talking about you

4. Lost and Found

VERSE 1
You ever notice that when you look in someone's eyes

you can kind of see into their soul for just a tiny sliver in time

and that moment you shared will spin

into forever and ever and ever

the plot is so clever

the devil wears a black and grey sweater in ninety degrees

adding to my belief that I've got to peel off every single layer

of the skin the binds me to the ground

you might use a prayer, meditation

but ascension is the final hair on the hand of God

The thought that I've thought take life

in the form of sounds from all walks of life
These words are the worthy sacrifice for the vision of

one world, one peace, one love, one light

taking form in our minds like a needle in your fucking eye

I can rap these songs but there are no words to write

the depths of the pain I feel when I see the suffering and strife

As I daydream that the day turned to night,

I can't tell my left from my right

cause I'm so fucking high off this blunt

I think I just saw Jesus Christ, Mohammad and Moses

carpooling on their way to Heaven in one hell of a ride

I can't be sure, I was blitzed at the time

but I've got nothing to hide

So if you're coming up behind me, you must be on my side

I've got a mission and I'm on it

you're just along for the ride, so listen


CHORUS

If you lost your halo, just give me a ring: 800-0321
Gotta let go, let go of the reigns I'm holding with a death grip

If you lost your halo, just give me a ring: 800-0321

Gotta let go, let go of the reigns I'm holding with a death grip

If you lost your halo...


VERSE 2
Would you rather I rap about something more pleasing

or something I don't even believe in

just to appease the masses?
Like I'll kowtow to fucking fascists

This rap is just fact upon fact

and it's purpose is to get your head out your ass

so plain to see that, and yeah

The more you pull back,

the more you can see the actors,

the size of the stage,

but if life's a game then love is the prize

Take a step up, don't be shy

the only way to win is to try
What's the point of being alive
if you can't take the heat?
Get out of the kitchen! Stop bitching!
Either take the bull by the horns

or get the hell out of the ring

Take a second to think:

a third of the world's population is starving

and you're tripping 'cause they didn't give you

ketchup with your onion rings?

It's called perspective...

expanding the walls of perception like a mental erection
This world's a deception,

If you buy into it's games you'll find yourself losing your leverage

Everything you've worked to gain can be taken away at any moment
Every moment is potent with potential

you don't need to show no credentials so

might as well seize it and own it

Don't waste your time trying to walk a line that's been

drawn by a mind with a big fucking hole in it
Why not pen your own and show these ho's

how flexible an artist's soul is?

CHORUS
If you lost your halo, just give me a ring:
800-0321
Gotta let go, let go of the reigns I'm holding with a death grip

If you lost your halo, just give me a ring: 800-0321

Gotta let go, let go of the reigns I'm holding with a death grip

If you lost your halo...


BRIDGE

Is this what it means to live the good life

in a house with a wife, three little kids

running around the house like it's World War 5?
Man it'll take more than that to satify this man right here

so ratify that bill to include this line
Section 3, Article 45

Funny how it takes a fucking genocide

to make us treat each other with

a little more love and alittle more light
Why the need to divide is such a prominent idea

in your eyes is beyond me

To be free means to be free, not to be a fucking zombie
Ignorance is bliss until you spill it on me

So next time you get cocky, remmber:
you're a bag of raw meat wrapped in skin, looking like salami
(mmm, salami)
Go cry to mommy and tell her to call me
I won't claim to be a prophet 'till you people put that on me


CHORUS

If you lost your halo, just give me a ring: 800-0321
Gotta let go, let go of the reigns I'm holding with a death grip

If you lost your halo, just give me a ring: 800-0321

Gotta let go, let go of the reigns I'm holding with a death grip

If you lost your halo...

 

1. Households

VERSE 1
I've all but turned my room into a mausoleum
Lost somewhere between old dishes and memories on the wall
My apathy could eat me whole

dissolve my reverence
I won't admit it but this bed's become my living penance

CHORUS
'Cause I need you to see this through
This house holds it's own abuse
I'm alright 'cause you're here today
On this lifeboat troubles slip away

VERSE 2
Lost in a daydream, drifting through the open lines
I don't need a reason to lay here with an empty mind
'Cause no one can reach me
I'm not my body
Though I know in my heart that it's probably my falling
And I try so hard not to touch my brakes
and I've lost so much but I've upped the stakes
So I'll crash and burn just to feel alive
I wake up in bed just to find out I survived

CHORUS
'Cause I need you to see this through
This house holds it's own abuse
I'm alright 'cause you're here today
On this lifeboat troubles slip away...

3. Rush Hour Crush

VERSE 1
The sound of my alarm has got me wishing I could call in sick
I can't do that, I need the money
And it's not so funny when the snooze goes off
so you're up at 6AM on a bus to work
to learn the art of wasting time
Fair's fair so I pay my fare
secretly hoping this bus takes me anywhere
but the place I'm meant to make ends meet today
It was a Tuesday morning when you stole my heart
and it beat to the sound of a brand new day

CHORUS
Rush hour crush on a bus
Is one simple look enough
to move my heart again and ego out the way?

VERSE 2
I didn't catch your name, but it's not like I was wondering
Maybe I'll quit - this job is such a bore
But being bored together we laughed until forever
and the chemistry was hard to ignore
Can't wait till Monday,
stuck on public transit yet I'm lonely with people all around me
It's the cold sick irony of love in the modern age
Looked back one last time as she walked away

CHORUS
Rush hour crush on a bus
Is one simple look enough
to move my heart again and ego out the way?

5. Chasing Chemicals

VERSE 1
I got dues
to the pills in my pocket and nothing to lose
I gotta choose
If you're down in the blues,
just call the doctor - there's a pill for that!

When you're mad, when you're sad, when you're glad
When you're chasing every chemical all over the map

CHORUS 1
If it wasn't for these chemicals
I'd swear I'm living in control
The pot smoke makes it hard to see
that steaming pile of shit you left for me

VERSE 2
Loose screws,
flying high with MacGyver on the back of a moose
aboard a loose caboose, I'm on the noose
and bound to lay something foul like I'm chasing Mother Goose
through the pen, the pen
So sharpen my machete
just to take its' head and pawn it for a penny
Come and sit court-side at a real life shit show
It's no secret - people bum me out

CHORUS 2
It's been way too long since I've felt the love I'm feeling
and when she takes my hand, the whole world falls away
Down here still caught up in my drugs, my doubts,
and if she's putting out
Sleepwalking to my grave, a noble like was more than I could take

BRIDGE
Maybe I'm a hurricane
Both the one they praise and the one they blame
but in the streets of Sodom, all the people know my name
'Cause it's one for all, and we're all the fucking same in this...

OUTRO
Pills for thrills in old Sin City
Oh what a pity that you came here
searching with a candle for a piece of my broken heart
They'll say we died from the pills but we were dead from the start
And if I miss my mark on history
let it burn in the sun at a hundred degrees
Kick off my slacks, roll up my sleeves
'cause I won't stop until this town is history

7. Albi

VERSE 1
Albi, you are the air I breathe
My heart belongs to you
You could drop me to my knees
Albi, you're with me in my dreams
In every waking thought
Every memory I'll keep
You're my, you're my, you're my...

PRE-CHORUS
You're my habibi Albi, my baby you'll be
Habibi Albi, my baby you'll be

CHORUS
I wanna hold you so tight
Girl you are the apple of my eye
I'm here to make it alright
Girl you are the apple of my eye
Can you feel it, feel it, feel it?
I'm right here by your side
I wanna hold you so tight
Girl I'll never let you go

VERSE 2
Albi, you are the ocean breeze
You are the salt of the earth
I'll treat you like a queen
Albi, I'll suffer your disease
I'll keep you safe and warm
I'll be strong when you are weak

PRE-CHORUS
You're my habibi Albi, my baby you'll be
Habibi Albi, my baby you'll be

CHORUS
I wanna hold you so tight
Girl you are the apple of my eye
I'm here to make it alright
Girl you are the apple of my eye
Can you feel it, feel it, feel it?
I'm right here by your side
I wanna hold you so tight
Girl I'll never let you go

2. Yuuwii Choow!!

VERSE 1
Up alone in the still of the night
Yuuwii Choow on Youtube and I'm feeling alright now
I hit the kitchen, raid the fridge for some food
When I glanced at the stovetop, the time read 2:22
Much to my delight, I doubt this could get any weirder
I barely know her, right?
But she had my hands tied!
It kind of feels like I'm running out of time

CHORUS
So what the hell is a guy to do?
Yuuwii Choow!!
I can't get through to you!
Falling harder by the second, I need a paramedic
On second thought, it's just a headache
Just begging for some connection - it's true!
Law school? Aw, screw you!
Fuck me? Well I say fuck you too!
I'm a motherfucking headache I never learn my lesson
Raised to believe I was pathetic?
Get your head out the clouds...

VERSE 2
Jackpot!
Witches alive and well in this city...
You kind of have to give these girls
some credit for their Internet presence
Looks could kill if you let
Her melody meant something to me
A little something like 'oh, oh, oh oh oh oh'
Harley Quinn on Batman
Twins like these would break your knees
and leave you in the trash can
I'm like - 'oh yeah, that girl's mean'
A Prince of Darkness needs a Queen
So I reserved a special place in hell
For Yuwen me to kiss and tell

CHORUS
So what the hell is a guy to do?
Yuuwii Choow!!
I can't get through to you!
Falling harder by the second, I need a paramedic
On second thought, it's just a headache
Just begging for some connection - it's true!
Law school? Aw, screw you!
Fuck me? Well I say fuck you too!
I'm a motherfucking headache I never learn my lesson
Raised to believe I was pathetic?
Get your head out the clouds...

BRIDGE
God must be a sadist to judge how we live our lives
I must have been faded 'cause I don't recall my lines
God must be a statist to judge how we live our lives
I must have been faded 'cause I don't recall my lines

4. Parental Guidance

VERSE 1
Slow it down - no, life is not a race now
Time's ticking - do I crank it, do I pace myself?
Do or die, they'll call me any day now
It'll take more than a bump to throw in my towel
Gather 'round 'cause I've got a lot to say now
Is it hidden in the groove, how we work that crowd?
High as hell, don't come fucking up my day now
Let's get along

CHORUS
First of all, I'm thankful for you brother
but I scare myself - I sound just like my mother
"Blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah blah"

VERSE 2
Slow it down - no, life is not a race now
Every note was sculpted from the space between the beats (woah-oh)
Misery loves company, the lows create the peaks
but when you're down, you're down so deep

CHORUS
First of all, I'm thankful for you brother
but I scare myself - I sound just like my mother
"Blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah blah"

BRIDGE
Tear it down just to build it back up
Sometimes life gets a little bit rough
but hey - it's nothing new
I know that life's not complicated
I overcomplicate it

Life was simpler in the springtime
One big happy family
When I caught a chill on the tire swing
and it made me think back to chasing you
on the playground hoping you liked me too

CHORUS OUTRO
And now most of all, I'm thankful for you mother
but I scare myself, I sound just like my brother
And now first of all, I'm thankful for you brother
but I scare myself, I sound like like my mother

And now first of all, I'm thankful for you brother
but I scare myself, I sound like like my mother
"Blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah
Blah blah blah blah blah
Blah blah blah blah blah blah"

6. Crazy By Design

VERSE 1
You're crazy by design
There you go again messing with my mind
Those eyes couldn't hide those lies
Talk all you want, but you can't deny my ass, my ass
That's right - you can kiss my ass
Let me know if we're moving to fast but
'till then, here's a song about my ass!

CHORUS
It's just a song about my ass
My ass, my ass, my ass...
So kiss my ass!

VERSE 2
You're crazy by design
Eye for an eye, we'd both go blind!
K, fine - just please stop crying
Everybody knows that I'm all about my ass, my ass...
Yeah right, does it look like a goldmine? No?
Well everything that shows ain't always fuckin' gold so
I shave my ass!

CHORUS
It's just a song about my ass
My ass, my ass, my ass...
So kiss my ass!

VERSE 3
I'm back and I can't slow down
Everybody knows when they hear that sound, it's time!
Girl, check my rhymes
Prose for the rows of the hoes in front of my cam
Do you have Instagram?
Do you follow my shit on Instagram?
As soon as you accept my friend request...
One hundred pictures of my ass!

CHORUS
It's just a song about my ass
My ass, my ass, my ass...
Yeah!

8. Due To Me

VERSE 1
Awake in a dream of the sort
that walks in and opens the door
to places inside us we'd like to ignore
It opens a window
a song planting seeds in my head
My room, my heart, my guitar, my bed
Three knocks on the door
should I let you in?

CHORUS
Do you know what you're doing to me, what you're doing to me?
Do you know what you're doing to me, what you're doing to me?

VERSE 2
Seasons come and go
but this household stays icy cold
Inside it snows, outside it's blistering
I would ask my dark side to set me free
but I do enjoy it's company
now that what I do, I do it wearily...

CHORUS
Do you know what you're doing to me, what you're doing to me?
Do you know what you're doing to me, what you're doing to me?

 

Braggadocious

VERSE 1
Stone cold, MINDSEED on a mission

I'm about to put the world in an uncomfortable position

I've been itching to give these midgets a taste of my position

All the limits you place on me don't exist in my existence

Man, I swear to God I'm winning

You see this life I'm living?
Getting bombed in the back of the Chevy just like everybody else
Then you throw a little bud in the mix

just to push me to my limits, to the truth of my existence

Might be looking big and juicy but I wasn't minute made, bitch

I've had to show up for the same shift at the same pay

on the same day working for the same grey

hair-brained motherfucker calling me on my day off

CHORUS
I'm braggadocious, baby

Don't mean to brag, it's just the spirit of hip-hop
I'm braggadocious, baby
Joe Cocker in the blender with Tupac

I'm braggadocious, baby
I see you moving like the sheep to a flock

with your head sized bigger than this whole damn rock

Now, shut up and check out my guitar solo, ok?


VERSE 2
Jack and Jill? I chased them up a little hill...
Took a little spill - just a drop in the bucket, so fuck it

When I was little, I wished I could bring my dick to show-and-tell

That'd be swell, bring a microscope

smaller than an isotope
What the hell's an isotope?
I don't know, but I know the name of

every Kartrashian under the sun
There can only be one true winner

and my plan is to be sitting there at dinner

with a bombshell wife and a rum on ice

It's everything I've wanted at a knockout price

It's pretty nice

My hair is slick, so you can trust my advice

Take a right, trust me, take a right

You'll end up alright - ok, goodbye!
Wrote my Grammy acceptance speech last night

like the plaque is hanging on the wall looking hella tight
 

OUTRO CHORUS
I'm braggadocious, baby

Don't mean to brag, it's just the spirit of hip-hop
I'm braggadocious, baby
Joe Cocker in the blender with Tupac

I'm braggadocious, baby
I see you moving like the sheep to a flock

with your head sized bigger than this whole damn rock

that you wakl with your head up your ass

and your ass in my clutch

The Fountain

VERSE 1
Here I am making sound again

So why am I still afraid to put the words upon the page?
The more I think about it, the more that I want it

I love it when you talk that polygamist rubbish

Give me more of it, and a little less sugar

on the road to winning the race


CHORUS

But I was halfway up the mountain

when the sky called out to me

Running circles in the fountain

making vows to history

But I was halfway up the mountain

when the sky called out to me

Running circles in the fountain

with my oldest enemies


VERSE 2

In my waking life again

somehow I'm still amazed at the the dreams that we could chase
The more I think about it, the more that I want it

I love it when you talk that polygamist rubbish

Give me more of it, and a little less sugar

on the road to winning the race

 

CHORUS

But I was halfway up the mountain

when the sky called out to me

Running circles in the fountain

making vows to history

But I was halfway up the mountain

when the sky called out to me

Running circles in the fountain

with my oldest enemies
