L.E.S. Artist What I'm searching for to tell it straight, I'm trying to build a wall Walking by myself down avenues that reek of time to kill If you see me keep going be a pass by waver Build me up, bring me down just leave me out you name dropper Stop trying to catch my eye I see you good you forced faker Just make it easy You're my enemy you fast talker I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up If I could stand up mean for the things that I believe What am I here for I left my home to disappear is all I'm here for myself Not to know you I don't need no one else Fit in so good the hope is that you cannot see me later You don't know me I am an introvert an excavator I'm duckin' out for now a face in dodgy elevators Creep up and suddenly I found myself an innovator Change, change, change, I want to get up out of my skin tell you what if I can shake it I'm 'a make this something worth dreaming of

Go Ahead, you know you want it You'll have no other way you just want to take us down Youll Find A Way go ahead, I'll be the one hit If I can take you, boy, it just might throw this town Oh, you want to get it You make us bleed, it'll prove there's life somewhere And oh, no, I want to yell it but do we speak or are we just nodding our heads No way, not me, what you got, it's not for me, but you'll find a way no way not me, what you got, it's not for me Don't reach too far You will fall over Don't be surprised what you discover Don't fear your call Can't pull us under You better watch out, run for cover We see right through it You get what you give, you get what you give Go ahead I'll be your junkie I'll be deplete you can heap all rubbish here Go ahead, now dump it on me if I go quiet will the itch go down with me Oh, you got to get it nevermind that it was never there nowhere but oh, no, not for a minute for now you'll make your bed and it will wait, I swear No way, not me, what you got, it's not for me, but you'll find a way no way not me, what you got, it's not for me Don't reach too far You will fall over Don't be surprised what you discover Don't fear your call Can't pull us under You better watch out, run for cover We see right through it You get what you give, you get what you give Tell them that they'll get what they wanted, tell them Tell them that they'll get what they wanted.'Til then....


PAGE 5 Brooklyn we go hard We on the look for the advantage, we work hard And if we seem to rough it up a bit We broke but we rich at heart Pull ourselves up now we won't choke It's our time, put the lights on us. War tactics, they make me sick Reel your heart in, run away with it Smile in your face, undermine your back Got guns for the strength they lack. So if you know another way You can't look the other way If you know another way Tell them so right to their face. We think you're a joke, Shove your hope where it don't shine (x4) I pay for what's called Eccentricity and my will to evolve I hear them all say That I got heart But not everything that it takes. Taint my mind but not my soul Tell you I got fire I wont sell it for no payroll Let 'em hold me down. I know if I know another way I can't look the other way I know another way I'll tell them so right to their face. We think you're a joke, Shove your hope where it don't shine. (x4) We think you're a joke, Shove your hope where it don't shine. (x4)

Shove It

Louder than they allow, Say Aha, Aha! At night it's eating up your head backed against a wall Got you in a tight place though you're not alone at all Been fighting, trying to place a name on what it's called Make you feel like a losing streak 'cause you know but you're not involved It's alright cause everything they say doesn't make no sense It's that time, I'm picking up my ass, up from off the fence Gonna blow a hole in this parade, it's self-defense I'm a army, got a whole brigade in my two cents ooooh Send in your torpedoes for all they know make a show, shake them up before you blow 'Cause they don't want no cure, no You'd better find a way, their aim's not pure

Say Ah


Creator Got no need for the fancy things All the attention that it brings Tell me no, I say yes, I was chosen And I will deliver the explosion Can't say it's gonna get me far Do no good to say what you are I run the streets and I break up houses River runs deep and the flame devours it Me, I'm a Creator Thrill is to make it up The rules I break got me a place Up on the radar Me, I'm a Taker Know what the stakes are Can't roll it back, it's understood Got to play our cards Sit tight I know what you are mad bright but you aint no star polish up til you make it gleam your M.O, I know what you mean Tail ridin' and I know it's true while they screamin' I love you Down deep you know there aint no flow a soul decay, was D.O.A I know what you here for now Words out you're an idea whore though, now don't you crush on me I'll see you in your pipe dreams whether or not you know it's true You're who they dictate to That shit must hurt real bad fakin' what you wish you had Here all the folks come ask about me Band wagon, know they used to doubt me Blind side tend to hit real hard you should heed the warning, get a body guard Steady friction in this bitch Creepin' in just like an itch so far I got the last laugh still the rich rise up, still I live fast wouldn't know it face to face Got no soul and got no taste Moving in speed up the pace I got it locked though, what a waste All the talk is standard fare Walk the walk if it gets you there on the grind til the gig is up Im 'a smash 'em down put a muzzle on them like "what!"

My Superman

Well you're a liar and your cues are all wrong. But, I can count on the ways you owe me. I want to you countdown what I have hold, so it can make some sense to me. Oh oh you boy. (You are, you are my, superman) You're a liar and your cues are all wrong. But, I can count on the ways you owe me. I want to you countdown what I have hold, so it can make some sense to me. Oh oh you boy. (You are, you are my, superman) [Repeat]
