Track Name: Tasteless
Tasteless

It's a sweet world I just don't have the taste for it
silicone and paper clips
sniff smoke and take a sip
everything is dangerous and happiness is strange to us

It's a sweet world I just don't have the taste for it
silicone and paper clips
sniff smoke and take a sip
everything is dangerous and happiness is strange to us

yeah happiness is strange to us

everything is dangerous and happiness is strange to us

Yeah I live in a fake world and eat fake food
nurtured to be a fool in a bloody pool of ignorance
I know no better no I know no difference
on the gun like an infamous fingerprint
headed nowhere in a rush get out the way I must
make it to the edge of the universe first
so I can disperse on a starburst verse
cuz down on earth
I'm just a number in a line a face with a dollar sign paying for your lies
with 1 reason to live and 99 to die
you and I know ain't nothing real
the game still got us in a rat wheel running for the hills
ask a killer how his gat feels shooting for a meal
programmed by a gram to be what I am
half slave and half man
half cane and half sand
in these streets like traffick jam

It's a sweet world

It's a sweet world
It's a sweet world I just don't have the taste for it
silicone and paper clips
sniff smoke and take a sip
everything is dangerous and happiness is strange to us

It's a sweet world I just don't have the taste for it
silicone and paper clips
sniff smoke and take a sip
everything is dangerous and happiness is strange to us

yeah happiness is strange to us

everything is dangerous and happiness is strange to us

Saran wrapped masks in a tupper ware of trash
sofficated by the fad where it's good to be bad
niggaz out of fashion like money in a paper bag
money money this money money man it's such a drag
money money that money money make you kill a man
I'm rolling on a rock on a rocky road again
on a journey to unknown end
till you see me trough your telescope lense
where matter bends and rules break
can't wait to be passed dated tiered of being sedated
while a custom to an abundance of problems
goon wolf's and goblins
constantly revolving around key rings in the evening
and I got hell to share for any nigga that needs wings
sorry if I'm blind it's just the way that I see things
pitch black and grim with a life of no reason
constructing a paradise out of a pair of dice
while your baby momma is strip teasing for the price

It's a sweet world

It's a sweet world
It's a sweet world I just don't have the taste for it
silicone and paper clips
sniff smoke and take a sip
everything is dangerous and happiness is strange to us

It's a sweet world I just don't have the taste for it
silicone and paper clips
sniff smoke and take a sip
everything is dangerous and happiness is strange to us

yeah happiness is strange to us

everything is dangerous and happiness is strange to us
Track Name: Lost
LOST

I’m LOST
On a ship floating in space
Trying to escape my fate
Made by my mistakes
I’m LOST
like a pirate lost at sea
Searching for a money tree
in corners of the galaxy
Darting off with thoughts
Bottled like a cocktail Malakoff
waiting to be tossed like Jesus on a cross
I’m LOST
On a ship floating in space
Trying to relate to a world drifting away
on a cloud giving me shade
blowing back another cloud
lifted now thinking out loud
on a beat as a backround
I am rapidly losing sense of gravity
something in the air must be grabbing me
lost in life’s labyrinth
Life is but a SHAM
Sniffing blow and selling aspirin
Trapped again
Living in a rush I be trafficking
Bringing back the diamond to the rough
For my Africans
Marching with Martian tribe
Oval eyes on cakes and pies
All we wanna do is live good and survive
Life is such a prize
lately realized when you lose it by surprise
Homicide suicide I dont wanna die
Searching for a better way to make it to the sky
make it, make it to the sky
X2 Drifting out in space, drifting out in space
Drowning in my sorrows
Getting bottles by the case
Drifting out in space, drifting in of space
Vacuumed in a black hole
Leaving earth without a trace

I'm Lost, I'm Lost

I'm gone
and I don't know where I'm going
floating like a message in a bottle in the ocean
I'm gone
what do stars have to offer
on a mission to give life from planet monster
planet goner planet life's a fucking bitch till your rich than you die
bye bye blue sky's spirit on a rise
I be dead inside since I arrived alive
Getting by resides on how I wanna die?
How I wanna live I man I cannot afford
about to be evicted from this Earth’s land lord
ejected from to the core too hard to absorb
my world my life my soul is a metaphor
used to meta-morph turning to a mega force
I'm just a distant orb
trying to outsource our source to a better world
where land is rich and money don't exist and anyone can pick from my endless weed forest
planet ''E'' for euphoric meet you there when ready for it
I be out of it, completely out of it
drifting out in space on ship out of orbit

X2 Drifting out in space, drifting out in space
Drowning in my sorrows
Getting bottles by the case
Drifting out in space, drifting in of space
Vacuumed in a black hole
Leaving earth without a trace

3x I'm lost on a ship floating in space

I'm lost, I'm lost

X2 Drifting out in space, drifting out in space
Drowning in my sorrows
Getting bottles by the case
Drifting out in space, drifting in of space
Vacuumed in a black hole
Leaving earth without a trace
Track Name: Atlantis
Atlantis

Drowning in Atlantis....
Drowning in Atlantis...

Lost inside a city that's lost with in itself
lost myself with the records on the shelf screaming help
seems this city hanged itself using Orion's belt
everybody wants a star for themselves
now all I see is black skies
underwater lost in sea tides
see I wanna wash up on the sea side
with a message in a bottle saying please buy with beats by RED
I hope I never be misread been mislead to the depths of lakes
where monster's wait to see us drown with an ankle weight
I feel my feet sinking like a ship
can't get a grip this illusion is to thick to shake or split
could this be it? are we doomed to watch and sit?
I am loosing it loosing air like a flying fish
I'm going down watch me drown
as our city sink
I'm going down watch me drown
as our city sink
as our as our city sinks

5X I'm drowning
I'm drowning in Atlantis
4X I'm drowning
I'm drowning in Atlantis
Atlantis..

Floating like a sub in a giant dirty bath
there's a wall on my path
that's about to feel my wrath
I was dragged in by these tidal waves
I'm a branded titled slave that lost all my human ways
fumigated like a parasite
it's hard to see our riches with a poor site of course I
try to cut the tension like sword fight
got the bull by the horns and I'm a stab it in his bull's eye
Bull's eye!
famished to submerge to new horizons
cuz our anchored fear is unsatisfying
time is flying out the window of this buried aquarium
throwing in the towel in total despair man
what's the point of this experiment
buried in serum
burying our feelings
I feel sick I feel cold
I feel I won't die old
drowning in a city that's lost is a black hole....

Hey yo man I'm drowning
you must be drowning too
shit, this whole city's drowning
well cheers to that....
to death...

5X I'm drowning
I'm drowning in Atlantis
4X I'm drowning
I'm drowning in Atlantis
Atlantis..

Drowning in Atlantis
Atlantis
5X I'm drowning
I'm drowning in Atlantis
Atlantis

Track Name: Galactic Warfare
Galactic War fare

Pull out your lasers
Enemy ship quick to blaze us
Shape up hang tuff
dark space is about to light up
Fireworks like a mercenary fair
Unaware of the fear we share
Take cover hold air
Prepare for galactic warfare

Yo It’s 2094 and and my worlds at war
man aint learned from way before
still at war for more and more
more and more till there is no more
till there is no store and there is no lord
till all that's left is a bungee cord
what goes down must come back up
no matter how tough
we must never give up
never give in to a liars trust
never adjust just rely on guts
I will not be compromised
chaos is a thing to clarify
cuz even in the future it's Do Or Die
all that matters is my way of life
Breed with greed and mislead the needs
feed the weeds that proceed to lead
be on leave for what I believe
is there space out here where peace can be
where my species can live peacefully
where you and me can live equally
free from bombs and economy
free from guns and prophecy's
free from profit odyssey's
where dollar signs is all we see

Pull out your lasers
Enemy ship quick to blaze us
Shape up hang tuff
dark space is about to light up
Fireworks like a mercenary fair
Unaware of the fear we share
Take cover hold air
Prepare for galactic warfare

Yo it’s 2099 and I’m on planet Blind
Man still dying without knowing why
Take, take, take but never spare a dime
Shoot, shoot, shoot what’s yours is mine
Waste your mind in a wasteful time
Got no time to be wasting mine
Man unkind with my mankind
Fall in line or fall behind
Out of line in or online
Are we out of time to decline our crimes
Or out of our minds trying to buy some time
Buy some ass and buy some wine
Pass by life and whine in shrines
Pass trough life at speed of light
yo I need light I never see no light
see no right to do wrong for rights
see dead bodies from left to right
what’s left to write what’s left of life
seems I might meet death tonight
at the dead of night with a bloody knife
seems I might go to paradise
for a deadly price what a bloody life
how to evolve if were hypnotized
what is will if were paralyzed
hit from behind hit from the skies




Pull out your lasers
Enemy ship quick to blaze us
Shape up hang tuff
dark space is about to light up
Fireworks like a mercenary fair
Unaware of the fear we share
Take cover hold air
Prepare for galactic warfare

Pull out your lasers
Enemy ship quick to blaze us
Shape up hang tuff
dark space is about to light up
Fireworks like a mercenary fair
Unaware of the fear we share
Take cover hold air
Prepare for galactic warfare

Track Name: Some Other Time
Some other time
2X Some other time (time) some other place (place)
In a different skin with another face
With different men in different race

Stepping in and out of time shape shifting into mankind
From the pharaohs to the Vikings I’ve been in and out of minds
In and out of time Unlimited is my life span
I’m part of all land I’m part of all man
Infinitely evolving in someone else’s skin
Humanoid or reptilian
From Muslim to a Christian
I’ve been put in all positions
Part of my own opposition
From the master to the slave slaving to the end of days
I’ve had countless other entities
....
As an immortal ball of energy
.....
Changing vessels as it ages, life to life I go through stages
Man this cycle never ends
.....
All that changes is the lens
At every death I have I swear I’m born again
Searching for my origin
In this turbulent system
Trying to gather up wisdom
To find out what is my mission
Giving meaning to be living
.....
Truth is hidden
is locked away in my psychosis
Going psycho trying to focus
Trying to go into my past
see the future before I crash
....
How many times will I die how many lives will I have

2X Some other time (time) some other place (place)
In a different skin with another face
With different men in different race

there's a part of me I can't unlock
can't find the keys I am Lost in this Galaxy
from star to star my soul restarts
within the dark
.....
from one planet to another
undercover to discover
the truth under every cover
to reveal its true color
.....
jumping in and out of warm holes yeah one world's gotta be home
don't know where I come from
don't know where I'm going
I'm going I'm going
can't stop till I'm knowing
why your here why I'm here were all here
but not here
.....
stepping in and out of dimensions
time here is endless
soul searching in all direction
from outer space to Atlantis
I'm looking for some answers
......
from the first man in his cave
to this futuristic age
I've been reading all the signs
from the walls to the page
from the streets to the stage
from the wild to the cage
I'm a cast away
casting all my rage in a sound wave

till I find my place I'm a drift space
looking for our interface

2X Some other time (time) some other place (place)
In a different skin with another face
With different men in different race
Track Name: Pencil Hatred
Pencil Hatred

All I have is this pencil hatred
fuck it I'll never make it
been so high I look down on stars with my back to the pavement
knowing street corners like the back of my hand
take my hand little man you can learn to sell a couple grams

All I have is this pencil hatred
fuck it I'll never make it
been so high I look down on stars with my back to the pavement
knowing street corners like the back of my hand
take my hand little man

I've been playing with razor blades since I was a short flame
young blood in the game all Nigga know is pain
anti love in my veins and alcohol tears
I've got cocaine dreams and American nightmares
is this it? it aint enough to keep me on a visit
I just wanna quit this bull shit I'm living
9 to 5 I'm 25 can't see me here at 55
I got trouble simply coping with tomorrow
today's just another empty bottle
wobble bobble borrow, borrow
just another number in the lotto
but I don't wanna follow
no I don't wanna no I don't wanna no I don't wanna to swallow
no I don't wanna gobble
I want the impossible trust me son it's possible
from ghetto hell to fairy tales
if life is what you make of it
music's what I take from it
life is what you take from it
than music's what I make of it
music's what I make of it


All I have is this pencil hatred
fuck it I'll never make it
been so high I look down on stars with my back to the pavement
knowing street corners like the back of my hand
take my hand little man you can learn to sell a couple grams



My pain is the world that I carry on my head
balancing the weight walking like an African
so far from my heart land my heart never mends
the pain never ends will I ever meet my ends
as I battle to the to the end to the end
and then I start again in a new skin
suffocated in this pencil hatred
yo this isn't real life it's a stenciled matrix
all I have is my time but I have no patience
living life like my death quick and painless
dying with my secrets like a secret agent
engraving my grave in a stone basement
stoned with a face lift
will I ever make it diving off this slave ship
where everybody salves to be rich and famous
if your world goes to hell tell your Gods to blame us, us
big dreamers drug dealers in god we trust
giving in to everything but never giving up
never never giving up never giving up
never giving up never never giving up
never giving up never never giving up

All I have is this pencil hatred
fuck it I'll never make it
been so high I look down on stars with my back to the pavement
knowing street corners like the back of my hand
take m y hand little man

All I have is this pencil hatred
fuck it I'll never make it
been so high I look down on stars with my back to the pavement
knowing street corners like the back of my hand
take m y hand little man
you could learn to sell a couple grams....
Track Name: Sham I Am
SHAM I AM

I'm a reflection of reality
a ripple in the water
drifting away from the crash site
I'm just trying to do better than my past life
but I was taught to fail not pass life
now I pass Mic's to the left cuz it isn't right
but nothing's right not the power or the pipe
super size and over price we are slaves for merchandise
roll the dice you got a chain I would like to exercise
realize the real lies in metaphors that entertain your eyes
entertained with lies entertained with crime
getting by is pass time passing all my time getting by on a flat line
decipher codes of a modern mind control
hacking in to modern soul's for a modern market stroll
I'm that nappy fro troll under the bridge grabbing your ankle
here to change your pretty plastic angle
so you can see the world that we strangle the truth is hard to handle
so we mask it every day with a handful of sad pills
this tasteless world is for the chicken
yeah narcissistic vision
where what you see is what you wanna be on television
primitive to listening so we tripping and wishing, bitching and slipping
and there's a prescription for any type of addiction
thank B.I.G. thank Pac Hip-Hop my own religion
by saying yes to weed and hell no to Ritalin
there's no discipline when it comes to giving in
I've been giving limbs and hymns
trying to keep up with the rhythm
from my central nervous system
so you can call me SHAM like the world that were living in

so you can call me SHAM like the world that were living in
so you can call me SHAM, so you can call me SHAM
so you can call me SHAM like the world that were living in
..............
so you can call me SHAM, so you can call me SHAM
so you can call me SHAM like the world that were living in

2 face too fake spitting like my tooth ache
nightmares and dreams just happen to be roommate's
coexisting in a dome where anything can happen
from a standing clapping ovation or a stabbing on vacation
I'm a SHAM-MAN vacating patients to the mother land
this shit is so bad you should tell your mother man
captain hook from never, never land
blow the cover plan undercover with the bomb like a Taliban
Yo I just let it blow this all I know
the paper roll is a road that we all are on
and I'm just trying to right our wrongs trough out every song
SHAM I AM from another world I AM
only here to plant what doesn't seem to grow
guarding like a scarecrow every seed I throw
till the roots run so deep
they break trough concrete
till the city can't compete with the SHAM inside of you
and the SHAM inside of me
.....
the SHAM inside of you
and the SHAM inside of me

.....
the SHAM inside of you
and the SHAM inside of me


so you can call me SHAM like the world that were living in
so you can call me SHAM, so you can call me SHAM
so you can call me SHAM like the world that were living in
Track Name: Boxed In A Beat
Boxed in a beat

2X In box there's a beat
this beat box makes my box speak
a box in a box in a box there's a beat
beat that beat till my box breaks free
boxing and boxing and boxing the beat
beat that beat before it boxes me
boxing and boxing and boxing the beat
beat that beat till my box breaks free

rocking the beat
hawking up coughing up all that's in me
till I'm resting in peace
soul so deep you can call it 6 feet
3rd eye wide awake when I sleep
aint no box big enough to hold me
soul so whole you can call it holy
soul's are sold bottled like 40
but what's it worth if it's never set free
sweet as can be
sweeter than pussy being dunked in honey
life's all good without an LG
all I need is a ''L'' and a ''G''
I don't need no box telling me
what's on my mind aint on TV
all that's on is our misery
all that's on is an odyssey that we hardly see
we are so confused
heaven or hell is all we ever choose
it seems abuse is the only way to use
how do we find what we are meant to lose
we are meant to lose
losing our minds losing our time in a box shaped by rules
boxing your soul till the box is you
the box is you
the box is you
the box box box box box box is you

2X In box there's a beat
this beat box makes my box speak
a box in a box in a box there's a beat
beat that beat till my box breaks free
boxing and boxing and boxing the beat
beat that beat before it boxes me
boxing and boxing and boxing the beat
beat that beat till my box breaks free

pushing these nails
unscrewing the screws that screwed me to hell
till I'm cracking this shell
burning these corners like I was born with an ''L''
born with a spell
written in brail so even blind men can see touch and feel
see how I feel like nothing is real
I just popped both red and blue pills
see how we feel over concealed
the truth is a weapon I can't wait to reveal
shooting my weapon till I break the shield
fucking this world without sex appeal
this world is so cold all I do is chill
all I do is kill all my time trying to fulfill
my past life's harsh dying will
die I will but not until
I unmask this mass appeal
trapped inside a box
buried alive to kill off our thoughts
digging through the dirt to rise to the top before all is lost before I rot
before I rot
I'm a kill off these kill bots
killing my world with their evil plots
I'm a break this box
I'm a break this box
I'm a break break break break break break this box


2X In box there's a beat
this beat box makes my box speak

Track Name: The Other Side
The Other Side

Meet me on the other side
the other side got places where we all can hide the other side
I be living on the other side the other side
where fish fly and the dead can rise the other side

Meet me on the other side
the other side got places where we all can hide the other side
I be living on the other side the other side
where fish fly and the dead can rise the other side


torn apart from light to dark from the stormy start
be the animal that escaped Noah's arch
depart like a dart out the dark
like I'm Tony Starks
got an iron fist knocking you till you see the stars yeah
see where you are in a universe so large
diverted from the truth what's the use to regroup
if we can't even reboot
what's the use to recruit if killing me is killing you
killing time is all we do
with our gadgets and contraptions
wrapped in these fashions of these attacking attractions
that got me back packing instead of packing and getting back in

Meet me on the other side
the other side got places where we all can hide the other side
I be living on the other side the other side
where fish fly and the dead can rise the other side

Meet me on the other side
the other side got places where we all can hide the other side
I be living on the other side the other side
where fish fly and the dead can rise the other side


escaping our function of being just sucked in
I've sunken like war ship
cannot worship this hors shit
out casted this fortress casting out our importance
I've jumped in a portrait a portal out of orbit
yo life here is short lived shortening my motives
life here is pointless disappointed with my appointments
pointing out poison I've chosen to expose them
dispose them disposable omens
disposed in their organs
only death is sure thing
I'm searching and surfing
I'm far from earthlings till it's worth returning

Meet me on the other side

Meet me on the other side
the other side got places where we all can hide the other side
I be living on the other side the other side
where fish fly and the dead can rise the other side

Meet me on the other side
the other side got places where we all can hide the other side
I be living on the other side the other side
where fish fly and the dead can rise the other side

Meet me on the other side

Track Name: Hang The World
Hang the world

I be spacing out
I be taking out
all the flames out my mouth
just to put em out
putting in to the input I be putting out
I go hard baby there ain't no pulling out
I be with without
witting out without doubt all the whips around on this whipping ground
hoping I be tapping out
I be tapping in channeling on what's happening
crashing in like it's 9-11 all again
cashing in on sin trying to ascend
got no lord in this game all that matters
is the numbers on the board in this reign
shooting for the score trying to score me some cane
floating like a ghost all I need soul fuck my host
lost upon this globe going door to door is all I know
selling to the rich living with the poor on I go
living on the go never know what I'm looking for
pedal to the floor I'm a roll till there's nothing more
never stop the hunt quick to jump on a predator
moving in the wild with a tribe full of warriors
looking for a rope big enough so we can hang this world

4X We can hang this world we can hang this world
and paint a new one now that this one is sold

I'll never make it out the cell if I sell out
but I'll sell anything to make it out the poor house
life support I can't afford I can't support my life
life I forge I can't adore I can't endure my life
escaping to the paintings that I write
I can't be boxed in ain't no frame for my state of mind
stating mine in a state so blind state deny staging lies for us to buy
so buy, buy till we say our bye bye's
abide by by-laws or be another outlaw
a glitch in the motherboard ignoring all that's pure
how can I compute with these plastic roots
so broke I'm mute cornered by the brutes
what am I to do trapping in my youth never worked
now I'm overdue all I do is play with metaphors
this is not a choice my voice has to paint remorse
living on the edge have to pledge to a deadly force
healing our wounds doing my best while I'm at my worst
falling out of space for a trace of a power source
searching for a place in this space where I can spread my words
feeling so alone man I swear man I'm not from earth

4X No I'm not from earth
No I'm not from earth
I'm just lost on this rock trying to stop the hurt

4X We can hang this world we can hang this world
and paint a new one now that this one is sold

2X No I'm not from earth
No I'm not from earth
I'm just lost on this rock trying to stop the hurt

2X We can hang this world we can hang this world
and paint a new one now that this one is sold

No I'm not from earth
Track Name: Soul'd
SOUL'D

There's an overload of sold souls
soulless molds that do whatever they told
to attain their role
and maintain their gold
on a yellow brick road
in a city where people are sould!

2X Were sould were sould were sould Were sould were sould were sould
Were sould were sould

Were sould and passed like a needle
Were sould X3
Were sould and money’s made us evil
Were sould X3
Were sould selling out what means most
Were sould X3
Were sould living in a dream world

shackled and chained by a frequency range
scrambling my brain
till I’m forcefully deranged

in a civilized reserve
where sophisticated nerds consider wildlife absurd
I'm flying like a wingless bird

off a high-riser in your horizon
working the air ways
till I crash into retirement

arriving- to eternal bliss while I'm dying
life is but glimpse in the eye of a storm
twisted by its mystic life forms it borns
we’ve been ill informed

by our informants
our rogue soul’s are dormant
we have rich minds in poor men

2X Were sould were sould were sould Were sould were sould were sould
Were sould were sould

Were sould and passed like a needle
Were sould X3
Were sould and money’s made us evil
Were sould X3
Were sould selling out what means most
Were sould X3
Were sould living in a dream world

Framed in a mainframe
that contains my troubled pain
Trying to proclaim

my innocence
my inner sense is in a trench
Questioning my existence

skulls and bones is all we have
piled in a body bag
my soul is product tested in a lab

tested for control
to control any thoughts I have
till I lose all control and become a souless man, man
sould to our nightmares in the devils dream land, land
living in a SHAM I don't know who I am, am
sould to the SHAM SHAMMING me SHAM I AM, am

2X Were sould were sould were sould Were sould were sould were sould
Were sould were sould

Were sould and passed like a needle
Were sould X3
Were sould and money’s made us evil
Were sould X3
Were sould selling out what means most
