1. FALLEN OFF

Great perfection appears so defective, great fullness feels so very empty
Great sincerity at times seems so insincere, great triumph seems like such a loss, such a loss
No more excuses, what are you running away from?
Intoxicant platform, you grow increasingly numb
At once you're so alive, so alive
What up kid, you fallen off, what up kid, you fallen off, at once you're so alive, so alive, so alive, what up kid, you fallen off, what up kid, you fallen off, what up kid, you fallen off, what's up kid, you fallen off
Great perfection appears so defective, great fullness feels so very empty
Great sincerity at times seems so insincere, great triumph seems like such a loss, such a loss
No more excuses, what are you running away from?
Intoxicant platform, you grow increasingly numb
At once you're so alive, so alive, so alive, what up kid, you fallen off, what up kid, you fallen off, at once you're so alive, so alive, so alive, what up kid, you fallen off, what's up kid, you fallen off, what up kid, you fallen off, what's up kid, you fallen off
You fallen off
You fallen off
At once you're so alive, so alive, so alive, what up kid, you fallen off, what up kid, you fallen off, at once you're so alive, so alive, so alive, what up kid, you fallen off, what up kid, you fallen off, at once you're so alive, once you're so alive, once you're so alive, so alive, so alive, what up kid, you fallen off, what up kid, you fallen off, what up kid, you fallen off, what's up kid, you fallen off.


2. COMING BACK

Comin' back
Comin' back
Comin' back, comin' back cause I can and I plan to stand in these days to come, counter attack on image acts that craft, trend chaser listeners, who ain't serious, ain't hearing it, direct action is how I battle, subtract me from tragic masses
Why should I slay through my consumption, why should I build onto this mess, we will all be held accountable, we've taken more than we've needed
Why should I?
Comin', comin' back
And you ain't gettin' my best yet, comin', comin' back (x3)
And you ain't gettin' my best yet
Where's the long term results and changes, this is gonna take my precious life, inescapable concerns intensify, return alive, combine with a fight in mind, are we on the same side, high price, full time, self sacrifice, will we ever respect innocent life, comin', comin' back
And you ain't gettin' my best yet, comin', comin' back (x3)
And you ain't gettin' my best yet
Do how I gotta do, won't apologize, purify, purify, won't apologize, do how I gotta do, won't apologize, purify, purify, won't apologize
Why should I?


3. TOGETHER

I'm a let you know, check it
Drop your guard, this time I come in peace healing bad blood, seeking foregivness and love, mad hyped to squash all beef and toy fuss, you rather turn your back but I'm asking you not to handle it like that, down to get right but you trip like I trip, both teams must come clean so hold up on your fronting, line drawn as I fight strong, this hate can't last lifelong, hyped on sights of my tribes bond together, together, get together, together, together, it never meant as much as it does right now, together, together, get together, together, together, it never meant as much as it does right now, now, now, now, now, now
Crews that used to be thight lose sight, who's right, hopeful vocals flow from one, who knows that blow by blows gotta go, can't talk it, must live it moment by moment, future depends on present connections within my section, pages of ages laced with days, split many lessons to learn from worse ones dirts, done, bust a face, pop a grill, na, I'm a chill threatening enemies, entering tensions, building together, together, get together, together, together, it never meant as much as it does right now, together, together, get together, together, together, it never meant as much as it does right now
We are growing again cause that's just the way you are, dig the beginning upon a place, without ever it felt from far, age sustaining in peace, this mockery your energy
You're eyes don't mean the same thing to me anymore, your words don't mean the same thing to me anymore, your face don't mean the same thing to me anymore, your smile don't mean the same thing to me anymore, this day don't mean the same thing to me anymore, this words don't mean the same thing to me anymore, you're eyes don't mean the same thing to me anymore, your words don't mean the same thing to me anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore
(Anymore) (x5)
Together, together, get together, together, together, it never meant as much as it does right now, together, together, get together, together, together, it never meant as much as it does right now.


4. PLAY BIG

Play big
I heard Bush was a drug dealer movin' them ki's to the platforms of offshore oil, black op's to pay off programs of manipulation and political assassinations, tons of opium to income puppet elections in central american soil, top government administration official run them narcotic for you
Can't walk away from this one clean (x2)
Keep play big, lords of pestilence, lords of pestilence, plagues reign, lords of pestilence, lords of pestilence, play big, lords of pestilence, lords of pestilence, plague reign, lords of pestilence
Khun Sa, golden triangle, international distribution, Laotia, Burma, Thailand, NSC corruption, Iran contra pass substance through customs, consumption, epidemic proportions, reduction of population, will congressman examine the CIA's own admissions, thousands gone on lifetime prison sentences
(Sentences)
You ain't walkin' away from this one clean
Ain't walkin' away from this one clean
Keep play big, lords of pestilence, lords of pestilence, plague reign, lords of pestilence, lords of pestilence, play big, lords of pestilence, lords of pestilence, plague reign, lords of pestilence, lords of pestilence
Lords of pestilence
Lords of pestilence
Lords
Lords, lords of pestilence
Play big, lords of pestilence, lords of pestilence, plague reign, lords of pestilence, lords of pestilence, play big, lords of pestilence, lords of pestilence, plagues reign, lords of pestilence, lords of pestilence.


5. CHECK YOUR PEOPLE

Make it back y'all
Haha, check me out
My enemies is in too motherfuckin' close, cut throat, zone association cold like stone, who'm I gettin' with, too connected with infected kids, who ain't done shit but strip my kit, can't believe what I see, sickening scenery, in the heat of things you won't be with me so flee my team, bloodsucker, yo, you think you got me ruffed up, you ain't got the stuff to cut my gut, what's up, check your people, check your camp, check your camp, check your people, check your people, check your camp, check your camp, check your people
Check 'em what I got
Who's got me like that, who's true like that, who's got my back in this pivotal pack of masks, bail my people outta lock up cause I got love when they caught up, will I get my grands back, testin' where they're hearts at, dead first before betrayal to my main network, visible signals, what's the move, cut 'em loose, check your people, check your camp, check your camp, check your people, check your people, check your camp, check your camp, check your people
Slipping and falling I threw my pearls to swine, I parted my fruit to squandering flesh, who chase prestigious design, I guess that's what I get, a fool is dangerous company, who brings much regret (x2)
You are so transparent (x2)
You are so transparent
You're so transparent
Transparent, take your piece and run, I'll become whole again with the sight of a new sun, take your piece and run, I'll become whole again with the sight of a new sun, you played me again, you played me again
Keep it real y'all
Check your people, check your camp, check your camp, check your people, check your people, check your camp, check your camp, check your people
Watch out, who you run with.


6. NO HOME (STEADY!)

Just, just, just because we rock the same style of tracks and we rock the same stage it don't put us on the same page like, like this
Talk all the shit you want but you know I got you listenin', gifted in mic rippin', unlimited linguistic fitness, district by district groove, move units but you lookin' clueless to the roots of this proven movement, 300 and 60 degress of complete me, when you see these believe the meaning in 3D, full contact with fat tracks out the habitat I'm at, check the format, contrast to fad acts
Rock it steady, steady rockin'
Rock it steady, steady rockin', I rock the mic in Philly, rock the mic in New York city, rock the mic in LA, vicinities infested with gang activity, someone's always trying to test my agility, can't retreat, have to keep my game and strategy, handling tragedies rapidly I keep advancing, let it be heavy, deadly hybrid specialty, all about theory, beats, technique and relativity, seek out my destiny written way out before me
Rock it steady, steady rockin'
Rock it steady, steady rockin', while you lost the gold and platinum I rock this anthem for kids strugglin' up in universal project slums, consensus, objection while you get numb across the millennium, Shatan prays on division, millions with melanin feel the tension, humanitarian unsison must become one, spectacular speech patterns shatter chapters of debatin' slanderers, challengers, what are you after, all is not terminal, non-commercial circle, peace to the creator, who flows me through the hurdles, connection with my origin, alpha omega is my champion, get done what can't get done, El-Hajj-Malik, El Shabazz, El-Hajj-Malik, El Shabazz, El-Hajj-Malik, El Shabazz, El-Hajj-Malik, El Shabazz, rock it steady
Steady rockin'
Rock it steady
Steady rockin', uh
Keep it steady, keep it steady rockin', keep it steady, keep in my pocket, keep it steady, keep it steady rockin', keep it steady, keep in my pocket.


7. WHICH WAY

Detach yourself from this place cause you know that you can never call this place your true home, true home (x2)
(x2) You're so out of reach
That it doesn't seem worth the time (x2)
Which way to your open spaces, which way to your hidden places, which way to your open spaces, which way, which way, which way, which way?
Detach yourself from this place cause you know that you can never call this place your true home, true home
Detach yourself from this place cause you know that you can never call this place your true home, true home cause you're so out of reach
That it doesn't seem worth the time
You're so out of reach
That it doesn't seem worth the time
Which way to your open spaces, which way to your hidden places, which way to your open spaces, which way, which way, which way, which way?
I know it's out there, it doesn't give like I gave, I know it's out there, indefinite walkway, I know it's out there, hail, fire, stone, I know it's out there, a killer of hope, I know it's out there, nights of love and war, I know it's out there, I've seen it before, I know it's out there, the way through, I know it's out there, all is not untrue
Which way to your open spaces, which way to your hidden places, which way to your open spaces, which way, which way, which way, which way?
I know it's out there, I know it's out there
I know, I know it's out there
I know it's out there, I know it's out there
Something had changed and somebody had to do something outta me, what the fuck was that and it wasn't us, yeah, wait, wait, wait
Be guys, come on rollin', right, let's do it
Let's go
1, 2, 3, 4.


8. CHEMICAL STRANGLE

Geo catastrophic continents hostage of polished profits, too much fluoride out my faucet, taste the toxic bionomic cost, is all this planet damage, land is captive, challenged organic balance, technical devil festival, terminal volatile obstacles possible, 50 earth species reaching scarcity daily, pavement replacing the ancient sacred places, chemical strangle
Chemical, chemical, irreversible, chemical strangle, chemical, chemical, so what you gonna do about it, chemical strangle, chemical, chemical, irreversible, chemical strangle, chemical, chemical
Earth first blessed me with green trees to breathe freely, healing planetary boundaries completely, bio-piracy, what kills the earth kills you and me, climate crisis, frightened science divided, fertile soils spoiled, natural inhabitables have to go based on vile capital knowledge, medicine proven, nourishment tribunal, worsened plant, damn, save the land, chemical strangle
Chemical, chemical, irreversible, chemical strangle, chemical, chemical, so what you gonna do about it, chemical strangle, chemical, chemical, irreversible, chemical strangle, chemical, chemical, so what you gonna do about it?
So what you gonna do about it? (x3)
Strangle

Chemical strangle, chemical, chemical, irreversible, chemical strangle, chemical, chemical, so what you gonna do about it, chemical strangle, chemical, chemical, irreversible, chemical strangle, chemical, chemical, so what you gonna do about it?
So what you gonna do about it? (x3)


9. TEAR US APART

We screamed with passion, can't remember warmer moments, can't recall brigther wholeness, we cried prayers to the sky, charismatic, glorious reflection
Brother, your face blazed of stunning, loving grace, sister serenading, healing as of a mothers embrace, moving me, such vibrancy, holiday, never perishing romanticism has proven frail, now I will pray for fallen angels
Set me up
Set that mic up, epic, disconnected, dramatic, seperate masses ending with emptiness, torn storm, sworn support cut short, forced to form swords of thorns, shredding, tearing each other to dust, furious sluts cut my heart out my chest, white societies divided, slithering slides, a viper came up with my so dodge the cutting con, filthy Judas jealousies, sceneries, scoundrels prowl around aroused by foul sounds of damaged companionship, together sever each other, life will tear us apart, words will tear us apart, life will tear us apart,
words will tear us apart(x2)
(Life)(Words) (x2)
Tear us apart
These things never heal, these course of events will craft a dear soul, steal the danger from expectations, the trail of disappointments, the conscience is narrow, times is not borrowed so cheap, we should die tomorrow, live will tear us apart, words will tear us apart, life will tear us apart, words will tear us apart (x2)
(Life)(Words) (x2)
Life will tear us apart
This hour, those moments, this hour, those moments, this hour, those moments, this hour, those moments, live will tear us apart, words will tear us apart, life will tear us apart,
words will tear us apart (x2)
(Life)(Words) (x2)
Life will tear us apart.


10. 2000

2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, 2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, 2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, 2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, precious souls before my birth gave their lives to change this mess, I know they saw something in the dawn, visions that would never let them rest, unborn generations inherited the multiple chain destruction to all of my relations, I've done what I can in my situation, 2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, 2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore
Swift velocity, all up in your grill, optimistic conquest to rebuild, all responsible, not invincible audio obstacles, all irresistible, who's example should a brother truly follow, keep it tight with the inner spiritual and all will follow, I write this tight verse for new life-cycle arrivers, I'd give my life first for peace to work
2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, 2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, 2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, 2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore
You can come up on yours but then what, this may take sacrifices but I know I'm not alone, exit the gloom of this age to a hope that's cut in stone, lost into demise, lost into demise, lost into demise, lost into demise
2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, 2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, 2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, 2000, 2000, this is not ours anymore, yeah.


11. EN AL AIRE

En al aire
En al aire (x2)
En al aire
Ay algo en el aire lo que siento no esta bin, no dejo que me cambie ay cosas que aser, juntarnos con quen podemos perdonar a enemigos, as lo con sentido todo para todos
En el aire (x3)
En el aire, da valor a lo cerca la concencia no te deja, si ay otras puertas lo pasado no regresso, concentra tu energia una costa con esperanza, dejando las herridas a vivir un nueva dia
En el aire, en el aire, en el aire, en el aire
Latino Amrica
Es en el aire
En al aire, yeah
En al aire.


12. TEST OF MY HEART

Test of my heart (x2)
Test of my heart
(Test My)
Test of my heart
(Test Of My)
No, I won't, foretold coast to coast, footloose scenarios can't break my fame, maintain, trade, meditate, all hours can't wide, operate straight from this place I say, tall words, we'll stop to where I foretold to give or I will stop to drop what was still, I stop to clutch my blood, fucked up thoughts turned the plot
(x2) Test of my heart
(Test Of My) (x2)
Cut much, caught up, tossed enough, got it rough, thinking much about staying above, the dust fit into battle, handle cheap shots, respond or be gone beyond this Babylon, con, I've hurt worse than this, turn it into new purposes, heard nervousness brings curses, it will take more than your amount to house my count so bounce, I hold it down catchin' a bad one, catchin' a bad one, catchin' a bad one, catchin' a bad one, test of my heart
(Test Of My) Test of my heart
(Test Of My)
Can't believe it's happening again, all this hasn't convinced to the transcend, this can't be forced out of me, that familiar push can strain my energy, can you be here to challenge my fate, if so you can't be stronger than predestined days, force me in a corner and we'll both lose, the value of this is far beyond me or you
Me
Or you
Love, test of my heart
(Test Of My)
Test of my heart, catchin' a bad one, catchin' a bad one
(Test Of My).


13. PURE TRAUMA

Go
I'm still there
I'm still there so you think you're familiar with me, well, I passed long before you looked in these eyes, went on, vanished, left this temple young on a crowded bedside, piercing voices, high screams through a stained yellow wall, long before you spoke words to me I departed on perpetual nightfall
I'm still there, pure trauma
Frame by frame pure trauma
I'm
Still
There
Reach right through me and I know you question my unsteady motion, wanted to lay myself to rest long ago but my life sings on, on, thinking it would blow into a petty dust of gathering nothing but visions flourish through the hallways of my mind, holding, haunting, I'm still there, pure trauma
Frame by frame pure trauma
I'm
Still
There
Pure trauma
I'm still there, pure trauma
Frame by frame pure trauma
I'm still there
I'm still there, pure trauma, I'm still there
I'm still there, pure trauma
Pure trauma.
