lyrics

vader
Aye, yea tell me what your God like,
you believe in the bottle or pray to bong pipes?
have you been tappin the throttle or taking long flights?
come and meet a couple of fellas who work it all night
now they got nothing to sell us we never lost sight
i gotta frostbite flow, might turn white
meaning i keep the bars real cold like klondike
everybody making the gold they puttin it on right
yeah, we got this funny little skill
and now these big shot dummies who’d kill us to make a deal
want wrist watch honey? no money, i gotta steal
how come all the people making a million i couldn’t feel?
gotta keep both feet on the pedals spinning the wheel
and these fellas keep kissing the devil to get a meal, aye
i’ll never settle for bread or keepin it sealed
and my dreams ain’t hitting the bed til i make em real

hook
i ain’t ever been a sheep but i’ve been in the herd,
i ain’t ever met a lie that didn’t keep its word,
i ain’t ever try to fly because i’d need a bird,
and i ain’t ever asked ‘em why because it seemed absurd
i ain’t ever been a sheep but i’ve been in the herd,
i ain’t ever met a lie that didn’t keep its word,
i ain’t ever try to fly because i’d need a bird,
and i ain’t ever asked ‘em why because it seemed absurd

epick
what you know about them games you playing?
most of us obeying don’t even be hearing what they saying
all complacent while the thing we love’s decaying
and proud to represent it in that ditch where we laying
i’m saying, the walking dead, the way we working ain’t paying,
cavemen had more sense than we displaying,
a little bit of it is still too illiterate, read between the lines,
and you’ll finds that we’re filled with it,
this bullshit is in the air and we’re breathing it,
generation next? we’re the next ones repeating it,
we ain’t different, we through a different beat on it,
and did a little dance with our cake like we eating it,
please, they fed us shit and then they peed on it,
lined up for it, and asked ‘em to put some cheese on it,
it’s funny money the way that we wanted honey
is killing all the bees and overseas spreading freedom on it

hook
i ain’t ever been a sheep but i’ve been in the herd,
i ain’t ever met a lie that didn’t keep its word,
i ain’t ever try to fly because i’d need a bird,
and i ain’t ever asked ‘em why because it seemed absurd
i ain’t ever been a sheep but i’ve been in the herd,
i ain’t ever met a lie that didn’t keep its word,
i ain’t ever try to fly because i’d need a bird,
and i ain’t ever asked ‘em why because it seemed absurd

silent knight
The unrested
untapped treasure
the young pack, unwrapped and uncensored
no question left unasked or un-accepted
that's the cut of cloth of class of who I rep with
the under privileged
under funded
understudies under fire living life, not just pundits
the front liners
who know it's more than just rhymes
and even moreso, more than just one liners
the def-dumb-blinders
from pet-drunk drivers
make me vexed sometimes
I feel like getting buck wilder
but I step much wiser
move more stealthier
keep my mind, body, and soul much healthier
put myself in a position to help more
instead of running desperate head first in a hell storm
but at the same time doing what I can now
never been the type to stop moving and stand down.
