Intoxicated 03:09
INTOXICATED Intro: (3x) Why do I feel intoxi… Verse 1: The new American psycho called himself Yeezus Nori Charge Treble we butt heads (Butt-Head) like Beavis Not an opportunity that I can pass up Catapult passed where I am to get my cash up No but it’s not about that Fulfilling my dream yeah it’s all about that Chasing the cheese caught in the mouse trap Slow process no it’s never asap Long live the effort Brush in hand mirror on top of the dresser Back in the day never thought of the pressure Gotta do it better if you wanna do it forever Lights so bright Emotion high like a kite Man this is so amazing This feeling’s intoxicating…what? Chorus: (4x) I want that feeling back Why do I feel intoxicated? (2x) I feel intoxicated oh no it was not anticipated Verse 2: Part two starts now if you’re feeling this hands up in the crowd If you’re feeling this hands up in the crowd Part two starts now if you’re feeling this hands up in the crowd If you’re feeling this hands up in the crowd They told me stay simple on that party tip On point with jazz (Jazz) stock ton (Stockton) of assists I couldn’t resist BlakDenim in this bumble bee with an itch Lights so bright Emotion high like a kite Man this is so amazing This feeling’s intoxicating…what? Chorus: (4x) I want that feeling back Why do I feel intoxicated? (2x) I feel intoxicated oh no it was not anticipated (4x) Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya (4x) I want that feeling back (4x) Why do I feel intoxi…

Horticulture 04:51
HORTICULTURE Verse 1: They say the root is only as strong as the fertilizer Under the lamp post all you see is minors Sad story played in c minor Plural ab original (Aboriginal) read the liners No post botox shit Who made decisions based on facts economic? I understand shoes we used to polish We were brought here but think about being abolished One was a blood murdered for his bandana But the murderer’s ancestry’s from Tampa Both reppin’ with a weapon act heinous We need assistance we don’t need surveillance Nobody worried about the issues though This is way bigga than a Jigga flow Tell me who’s worried about the oil? Officer I’m just planting seeds in the soil Chorus: Horticulture They just wanna whore the culture Horticulture If birds flock together then politicians are vultures…I push knowledge (Female vocalist) (2x) Is it ever enough? Would you even know? You have been warned You reap what you sow Verse 2: Reaganomics affected the black youths money knowledge Product on the boat dollars flooding the wallet Jewelry, liquor, chicks and chronic Fuck with me you know I got it Tell me if they’ve ever told you That untaught history books are what molded you They still mold the youth How can you know the truth’s root if they pulled the tooth? Audio, video, media, retina Forget the wool tell me where it’s tailored from So what’s the problem? Telling me you had no hand in the renaissance of Harlem Fast forward broadcast new masters Chain on the neck fatherless literal bastard Tell me who’s worried about the oil? Officer I’m just planting seeds in the soil Chorus: Horticulture They just wanna whore the culture Horticulture If birds flock together then politicians are vultures…I push knowledge (Female vocalist) (2x) Is it ever enough? Would you even know? You have been warned You reap what you sow Verse 3: People get arrested for what they grow in their backyard Taxpayers’ money going to the task force Intent to distribute I get that though Same money is fueling a Ford (Rob Ford) I read the reports Monsanto bunch of fuckin’ assholes Taking revenue from who they label as vatos Ironic who approved it anyway Is probably eating organic food in his motorcade Bitch I got more to say ‘Cause I don’t like to be used as a pro-j… E-c-t the e-t-c Is what they keep from we on that TV screen They control what they feed us Oppose and the leaders may try to delete us Tell me who’s worried about the oil? Officer I’m just planting seeds in the soil Chorus: Horticulture They just wanna whore the culture Horticulture If birds flock together then politicians are vultures…I push knowledge (Female vocalist) (2x) Is it ever enough? Would you even know? You have been warned You reap what you sow

One Hit 03:42
ONE HIT Verse 1: Did I ever think that I would get to this point? Spit fluid into ears let the lyrics annoint Not really but brain remains blessed Fearlessly rolled through obstacles two ways I’m intrepid Set goals for myself that I had to acknowledge And one of those goals was that I had to graduate from college Now I got a piece of paper claiming that I got knowledge But what does that mean if that’s not what you really wanted A waste of money or a good plan B I don’t know but in time we shall see Now I’m working in the field that I graduated from But I’d rather a place to place my dedication End of the day I place my day in a song Attempt to decompress any type of depression This is what I think about from dusk ‘til dawn And if you read between the lines then this is right where I belong Chorus (2x): (Female vocalist) Don’t wanna be a one hit wonder So I wonder Because I don’t wanna be a goner Will I be here next year? Verse 2: Damn what a homie gotta do? He just wanna stick around he don’t wanna bid adieux So he turns to Facebook and tries to add you In hopes you’ll follow his words, Book of Matthew His new Testament that you’re listenin’ to Two ways unbelievable, Kris Kringle ‘Cause kid you either believe or you don’t Or you just can’t believe the shit that he wrote But he still feels neglected He feels they won’t link because the lack of necklace they on some neck shit I said some neck shit ‘cause on my next shit I want them to turn their heads and say you’re next kid To be live on stage with no edit Born to a new world of criticism on your exit Nervous feels the pressure but he ready for it Enticed by bright lights and night life can’t ignore it Chorus (2x): (Female vocalist) Don’t wanna be a one hit wonder So I wonder Because I don’t wanna be a goner Will I be here next year? Verse 3: I’m on stage and people sing my song back at me Just the thought of that would make my ass happy But it breeds jealousy and people wanna attack me The only cuffs I wanna deal with are the ones on my khakis I hope this feeling never goes away But the fact of the matter is that it could leave today Makes you wonder after one hit how someone could plummet Shit I am just being honest They did it with consistency Meaning I gotta do it more consistently Number one on Billboard maximum exposure Still their house get taken over by foreclosure Handle your business bring music to the masses Spotlight off the tint of your glasses Follow your dreams is what I have to say Nothing set in stone so I pray everyday Chorus (2x): (Female vocalist) Don’t wanna be a one hit wonder So I wonder Because I don’t wanna be a goner Will I be here next year?

So Cold 04:06
SO COLD Verse 1: Check the sleeve no emotion Elixir kind of potion my mind floating now I’m so frozen I’ve gone numb Didn’t think I’d be the individual to succumb Needless to say that it’s been a bad day Pathetic fallacy clouds are a tad grey Down with the rain; rain on the pane Pain on the brain; brain’s Novocain You can’t tell me nothing Baby please keep the drinks coming I’m by that bar right you know the bar life Vodka on sprite modern day Walter Cronkite Do I give you news or half truths? That’s for you to decipher alright sir Evasive of what the issue is Minus Celsius I can tell you this Chorus: I’m so cold Sometimes this life’s too real I’m so cold It will take time to heal I’m so cold Thoughts spinning like a wheel I’m so cold Right now that’s how I feel Verse 2: What’s up with this what’s up with that? How you maintainin’ remainin’ in contact? No response any emotion I bottle that Tryin’ to deal with issues by twisting this bottle cap like Pour up, drink, head shot, drink Staring into space barely able to blink Blackin’ out on couches don’t care what you think Face stone cold body lyin’ (lion) like a sphinx think (Can it be that it was all so simple then?) Messing with my mental detrimental to my temple When will the good intercept? Tears avalanche down the face snowball effect Do I give you news or half truths? That’s for you to decipher alright sir Evasive of what the issue is Minus Celsius I can tell you this Chorus: I’m so cold Sometimes this life’s too real I’m so cold It will take time to heal I’m so cold Thoughts spinning like a wheel I’m so cold Right now that’s how I feel Bridge: Sitting and reflecting at this party tonight Thinking to myself how to make it right Future uncertain as a rolling dice Heart cold even in these flashing lights Trying to remember what I’m fighting for All means nothing if my soul is poor Not gonna feel this way no more, no more Chorus: I’m so cold Sometimes this life’s too real I’m so cold It will take time to heal I’m so cold Thoughts spinning like a wheel I’m so cold Right now that’s how I feel
