Track Name: Patience is Gold
I been waiting for a long long time
but i will find a way...
I been patiently waiting
Patience is gold

Breaking on a mental cross mental ability my mental patient's tranquility's breaking your facilitie, i snap rapid it down they need a rap cause no one's in the mind developing they bringing crap, crack through the ceiling crack through the wall crack through them all
I develop break em down Rap y'all Rapping ability shivering
they wanna stop rapping on the calendar hip hop non stop
Open the rebel man breaking the element the elephant
incredible rebel the man to dispose and assemble
Rapping the riddle they wanna combine in the middle
breaking the riddle i take it down, Who's the riddle?
giggle me giggle me jiggle me come on and jiggy jiggy
with me my rap disease i make you freeze
Bringing degrees the 36 chambers recall the name
come on i make you nameless

I been waiting for a long long time
but i will find a way...
Just listen to the rap press play
Believe in yourself and everything you say
I been waiting for a long long time
but i will find a way...
Yes i will yes my man
Patience is gold

Number attack the chemical rap your breaking on crack
i'm breaking on crap i'm ready to sack
put you in cause your mind is a bin
i take it's a thing i'm down to sin ready to win
take em down snap the cross smack the boss
it's hip hop non stop ready, cross,
Press keep the best they wanna slack
cause they rapping outta town cause there shit's all wack
no name talking down came talking finale the rally they wanna battle but sadly Yeah!what? they wanna climb up the ladder
they wanna rap with no data I got the rapper Sinatra
Microphone i rap it along i take it down pass the song
come on along i wanna reach beyond
the purest form new reborn touch the mic and rock on....
Track Name: Empty Pockets But a Rich Mind
I take it easy on the microphone i take control i know my role
i never stop i rap with purpose that's my goal
Don't need no crown or throne i stay focused while you fall
like a rolling stone Slick like an alley cat dirty like a rat
put me in your speakers inhale the rap can't find your way
while i design the map can't handle the weight
too bad i break your back elephant's the man ride on
i 'm bringing it back to the basics close your ears your eyes
you can't face it you just wear it and fake it
you lack of creativity man i gotta replace it
Gotta keep it real while you sex appeal
on the mic check i don't mass appeal
you make yourself into becoming the meal
Big mouth Small head your an easy Kill

Empty pockets but a rich mind
I got
Empty pockets but a rich mind
I got
Empty pockets but a rich mind
I got
Empty pockets but a rich mind

When i think where i am man i'm in a state of mind
with no looking back no resurrection no denials
i beat the cause just because i don't wanna
feed a lost cause in the name of applause and Remorse
is picking a needle out of the straws trying to keep it on a rise
all i see is closed doors i mean it ain't easy to evolve these days
wrong direction lost people and a minimum wage

Empty pockets but a rich mind
I got
Empty pockets but a rich mind
I got
Empty pockets but a rich mind
I got
Empty pockets but a rich mind
Track Name: Lies Can Pay
We re in the zoo... Living to build up
the next generation of Lies Can Pay

I pressure your lies not in disguise covering blue skies
flying away can't wait for the prize serenity cries
if you can't see it you never really opened your eyes
so just effort to die in the tries, Soft will o i spillow
in your dreams and tingle complex is so simple
walk away your the victim...you tingle
I engineer pass the frontier gas hold change gear
i'm not in the front i'm on the rear
appear disappear foggy weather now clear
i fight away the fear i interfere
system can't break me down i shed a tear
i smash your formality of lies and reappear
to approach the rings of justice can't touch this
come on they can't fuck this, Ignorance is bliss
knowing too much means sleeping with the fish let's change this
Distort this abort this press the switch now you miss
Devotion emotion has found it's quest take the potion and rest
on the way to the ocean be my guest try your best
i see brains on fire, you stay frozen i bring the beautiful choir
In the end if my mind don't blend i won't stay to attend
the messages that they send. They don't comprehend
i got beautiful friends down with the love and the life we defend
Staying out the cage is my way to salvation
the writings on the page is my strength and motivation

We're in the zoo we're in our own cage
living to build up the next generation of Lies Can Pay
We're in the zoo we're in our own cage
living to build up the next generation of Lies Can Pay
We're in the zoo we're in our own cage
living to build up the next generation of Lies Can Pay
We're in the zoo we're in our own cage
living to build up the next generation of Lies Can Pay
Track Name: Survival Of The Fittest
It takes a powerful mind to make them resign
they offer poverty our response is eye for an eye
put me on the microphone control off the hook
man they suck they be babbling while robing your hood so
Robin hood the microphone dove they wanna take it down
but i just give it all love always try to lie with their face down
acting all funny while looking like a sad clown yo
they drain the passion from the youth so frustration
and anger become the weapon of the youth
the proof that things round here have got to change
got us struggling to live building up the rage
Demise got us running round like cats and mice
Survival of the fittest we're losing our human rights
and ambition we're all caught up in an addiction
Doctor Doctor write me a prescription
Hook me up cool me down from the friction need those pills
i'm facing an eviction conviction cause we ain't got no say
we're just numbers for the masters while they lead the way

Don't be afraid to die be afraid to living a lie yeah to live in a lie
Don't be afraid to die be afraid to living a lie yeah to live in a lie
Don't be afraid to die be afraid to living a lie yeah to live in a lie
Don't be afraid to die be afraid to living a lie yeah to live in a lie
Don't be

To all the animals in town take control of expression
or you be playing lost and found, Surround open up your eyes
look around strike the enemy sound vultures own the town
It's the fall of the man the rise of dumb found
spiritual negativity pigs wear the crown
they feed on our greed while grow on bloody ground
they eat sleep fuck and in misery drown confound
precise responsibility thrice burn their jurisdiction
we're getting colder than ice
It's a critical condition no room for friendly advice
caught up in a game we're all gonna pay the price
This city's a jungle it eats it's kids
sells flesh for thought to replace all things
the man's a puppet attached to strings
respect's for sale place you bets, All In

Don't be afraid to die be afraid to living a lie yeah to live in a lie
Don't be afraid to die be afraid to living a lie yeah to live in a lie
Don't be afraid to die be afraid to living a lie yeah to live in a lie
Don't be afraid to die be afraid to living a lie live in a lie living a lie bye
Track Name: Rocksteady
Mechanical animal cannibal with recognition ignition
to spark the definition of rhyming's precision
It's the tension connection effection give bigger attention
out of the physical helps me see my imperfections like
cynical subliminal criminal on the mic with full effect
i ain't no minimal typical Replace
i need air to breath they gaining space
a whole lot of nothing time to slap them in their face
old school breaking all the rules i be listening to real cats
not silly dogs and fools, i'm reconnecting the brain
cause they be driving on an empty tank of fuel in the wrong lane
Insane i'm cutting of your chain your extinct in my domain
put a bullet in your brain make you feel like Kurt Cobain
the truth is similar to pain
that's why only a few remain true to the game
Fuck fame everybody looks the same
i want barbecues graffiti on the wall
when they hear my name
Elephant's the mind Phinix is the soul
i'd like to welcome every dirty motherfucker to the show
We're ready set go this goes out to all my friends
and the people that i know
got my mind always in check so i know which way to go
everyday's a stuggle so everyday i grow
Track Name: Rhyme & Reason
Open up the sky bring the rain down this rap's a meltdown
new villain in town with a slick sound
Stays on top but keeps hidden underground
tries his best to avoid a nervous breakdown
sick of dummies kicking it in the same style
sick of women kicking it just to play wild
sick of rappers kicking it for the profile
low profile superhero, Ka Pow Pow
My potential in life is to protect and aim
against all these motherfuckers that control the game
they got a target group it only runs on fame
and run around in circles acting clowns without no shame
I put my spades on it i put my ashes on it
i'm already in your just about to vomit
i do it for the love while you do it for the grub
i do it for myself just so i can stay above
the record so i sustain for the effort
i stay on top so i can spit sick you get it?
Microphone control be my goal
i never do it for the role i keep it rock n roll
Hip Hop's the game always stay the same
they be kicking to gain likes casualties of fame
No regrets for doing shit i had to do
if i' a slave i'm a slave to the Rhythm
I confess empty pockets but a rich mind
something to invest and suggest to the human kind
Keep of the gimmicks cause they a waste of time
and keep away from actors they try to steal your shine
stay on the grind i gotta get mine
one circle one vision one love one person one mind
the truth is divine old school rugged and wild
we the boom box generation still kicking it live
Track Name: Just a Thought
Deep dreams are true till whispers awake us
nothing can go wrong i sleep to stay ageless
Pages of thoughts turn into faces
give me the power of control to embrace this

I need to seize the day
been walking on a wrong path nearly lost my way
I been a victim to their play i've seen it all
it's such an easy thing to say
gotta wake up on the right side of the bed
alive or dead been in a coma in my head
Frozen in time waiting while the days go by living in lies
but dreams and real life collide
reality check hits you like thunder when it strikes
avoid the pressure and the fights been killing myself
with bloody eyes and sleepless nights
I love my people too much still i disappear at times
just to avoid the crush
the speed of life is in a rush
and i don't wanna stand still to moan and fuss
Evolution's what we need prosperity for all
not emptiness and greed
the problem starts from the seed still we all need our comforts
while other people bleed, I'm guilty too
humanity's a selfish breed i know you know it
still avoid it yes indeed
i know you know it it's the truth yes indeed
you know that change is the only thing we need
I sleep on change then wake up numb
lost in madness everybody want a gun
i still embrace life but i ain't having fun
i dream of change then wake up and i don't feel son
so i sink back into those deep dreams
where i control it all beyond all means
i write the script and direct all the movies scenes
cause in real life nothing is as it seems

Deep dreams are true till whispers awake us
nothing can go wrong i sleep to stay ageless
Pages of thoughts turn into faces
give me the power of control to embrace this
