Track Name: Dark Matter Issue 2
1st VERSE

I’m running from the trailer’s explosion the temperatures frozen
surprisingly I don’t even notice

And disappear inside the shadows of the city back streets
my memory in fragments but I hold on to one piece

To recollect my last step just before I caught my death
climbing the sides of buildings and never breaking a sweat

I hit the rooftops my view stops….lightning strikes
and my mind floods with these memories..familiar names familiar sights

all of a sudden out of nowhere a barrage of energy blasts
the impact knocks me down and I fall to the streets fast

hit the ground but land on my feet with no sound
who’s my attacker my anger swells I turn around

I see these cyborgs with spider-like appendages
All advancing on me closing in so they can finish it

Gripping the scythe and look around to face the rest of them
the leader speaks into his headset “we found the specimen”

CHORUS

all these images clouding up my brain
feeling like my blood’s on fire and it’s burning through my veins

No soul to shatter
Only bones get battered
Blood will get splattered
All because of dark matter

came back from the grave and that thought is so insane
so confused and full of anger as I’m running in the rain

No soul to shatter
Only bones get battered
Blood will get splattered
All because of dark matter

2ND VERSE

now I’m surrounded in the middle of monstrosities
converging on me all at once to bring some harm to me

I lash out and leave a couple with a smashed mouth
threw a few down on the ground and bashed them till they passed out

one managed to rip me with his weaponized extremity
the wound closed in seconds like it was nothing he did to me

I didn’t even feel the pain from the attack
but I was staggered and fell back by the sudden impact

guess they thought they had a clear advantage until they saw my weapon brandished
I swung it savagely and watched a couple heads vanish

one started blasting with his energy weapon
but I spun the scythe in front of me and easily deflect them

and killed them all except the one who must have been in charge
watched him flee and leave the scene but suddenly I thought naw

if I followed in the shadows and don’t let him get too far
It’s possible I’ll get some answers and find out just who they are


CHORUS

all these images clouding up my brain
feeling like my blood’s on fire and it’s burning through my veins

No soul to shatter
Only bones get battered
Blood will get splattered
All because of dark matter

came back from the grave and that thought is so insane
so confused and full of anger as I’m running in the rain

No soul to shatter
Only bones get battered
Blood will get splattered
All because of dark matter

3RD VERSE

I followed through the alleyways abandon buildings back streets
blending in with shadows making sure he’d never catch me

must be really injured cause he started moving reckless
ran across an intersection hit a car and wrecked it

car started smoking I ran up to go inspect it
pulled the driver out in time avoid exploding wreckage

got back on my hunt again and caught up like a block behind
just in time to see him hit the sewers then I jump in blind

at least I thought but damn I’m seeing in the dark
just like it was day time this thing is getting more bizarre

leads me to a hidden lab then turns around and attacks
but he’s no match for me I pick him up then down on his back

but all he does is laugh and somehow hits a self destruct
a sixty second timer guess this place is blowing up

I snatch a laptop from a desk before it get’s too late
head back through the tunnel fast as shit to make my big escape
Track Name: The Mad Dystopian
I always get questioned on why my music sounds angry
I wish I could just blame the world and say this place changed me

the truth is since I child it I always kind of felt mad
like I was living with the venom that murdered my old man

like it infused in me genetically and stained my disposition
so when put in some positions my temper will spark quicker

I guess we should be thankful i never got into liquor
cause drinking fire water might give me hair pin triggers

in younger days it was the bane of all of my existence
but the older I have gotten I bring a stronger resistance

so usually that means that i’m suppressing a lot
don’t bother saying it ain’t good for me I know that it’s not

but see what choice have I got.. cause if I let these evil forces tempt me
I’ll be bashing fuckers heads in like they Ren and Stimpy

so for now I’ll do the best that I can
to keep the demons on the low just to prevent the mayhem

CHORUS
everytime I spit//it sounds like I might flip into a rage
and take this anger straight up off the page

and every time I flow// it sounds like I might explode
and take this world with me and watch it burning down in flames


and every time I rap//it sounds like I might snap
and have to be restrained but nothing that they build contains

and every time I write// it feels like I’m not right
And these words are gonna rub them all the wrong way

2ND VERSE

Mister “fuck your favorite rapper” is back... hip hop Galactus
looking at your planet thinking this might make a nice snack

slap your face until your jawbone collapse
then switch it up and pick you up from out the dust and tell you homie relax

I’m dialing disrespect up to the max... punch the boogers out your nose
and laughing crazy at your silly tight clothes

or your apologetic flows that shows you’re scared to get down
cause you ain’t rough enough and we can even tell by your sound

so color me so unimpressed by that weakness that you express
it’s not my fault I just detest you , him and all the rest

from time to time that sentiment is coming out my rhymes
then some people hear it, take offense and really start to whine

but this is just the way that I rock shit... so loud and obnoxious
with an attitude that poison and toxic

no matter what you think I won’t stop this
that’s probably why my brother Palm laughs and says deadman you not shit

CHORUS

everytime I spit//it sounds like I might flip into a rage
and take this anger straight up off the page

and every time I flow// it sounds like I might explode
and take this world with me and watch it burning down in flames


and every time I rap//it sounds like I might snap
and have to be restrained but nothing that they build contains

and every time I write// it feels like I’m not right
And these words are gonna rub them all the wrong way



3RD VERSE

No I won’t tone it down just to satiate your ego
no I won’t clean it up just to entertain these people

so what you’re intimidated man i don’t even mean to
before you even get started on that shit here the preview

and honestly you’ll just get ignored..I won’t acknowledge you
except to say your mama’s a whore and she should have swallowed you

I hope that makes you mad enough to leave me alone
how dare you try to tell me how to do some art that’s my own

the one thing I have learned is that everyone is a critic
and everyone has opinions on how that they would have did it

and everyone thinks they’re special but everyone’s not artistic
so if you think that you’re swaying my process you got it twisted

my delivery gon be what it is….it’s not democracy
you don’t get a vote on my songs.. or methodology

you either get to say that you love it or do not like it see
and i will do the same with your craft...and that’s alright with me

CHORUS

everytime I spit//it sounds like I might flip into a rage
and take this anger straight up off the page

and every time I flow// it sounds like I might explode
and take this world with me and watch it burning down in flames


and every time I rap//it sounds like I might snap
and have to be restrained but nothing that they build contains

and every time I write// it feels like I’m not right
And these words are gonna rub them all the wrong way
Track Name: Cosmic
1ST VERSE

sometimes I start to feel that I don’t want to be here
I get tired of having to look inside your face and see deceitful sneers

of feeling like you could hear me but just won’t clean your ears
and just below the surface disappointment I’m feeling for years

see truthfully this stupid cycle is exhausting...disheartening
to see how few of you will choose the smart thing

instead it seems that all you people want is conflict
to contradict, with utter nonsense until those bombs hits

collectively the human story is a tragedy
written with the blood that they spill in all their calamities

shamelessly ignorant, aggressive and belligerent
dig a mass grave for these monkeys and they’ll jump into it

and I don’t really feel all that connected no more
with any group or any cause I’m just not on board

I just want to say goodbye leave all of this bullshit behind
find another planet even if I have to die trying

CHORUS

Lately I’ve been feeling kind of cosmic
the smell of this prison has got me nauseous

I’m surrounded by these zombies I’m a target
I’m begging just to get away and blast off in a starship

OK you win cause now I'm giving in
No I won't stop you go and chase all that oblivion

keep your politics and crappy ideology
this ain’t even what I call life...it’s a mockery

2ND VERSE

I would rather leave and wander the cosmos
then have to spend my living years walking on compost

just waiting for the day they build a warp drive
so I could sneak inside and hide just long enough to take myself a long ride

cause all around me I see arguments and gunsmoke
blood in the water from slaughter that made the bodies float

one side or another that claim superiority
while segments of the population ruling the majority

it’s hard to see beyond the veil of politics and bullshit
religious indoctrination so fuck it man I forfeit

you can keep this filthy dung heap
where lots of young speak stupidity

and science has to struggle for validity

I’d be a liar if I said there’s not a part of me
that likes to entertain the evil meaner darker me

that longs to kill them all in a flash of extreme violence
if it would mean I could exist inside serene silence


CHORUS

Lately I’ve been feeling kind of cosmic
the smell of this prison has got me nauseous

I’m surrounded by these zombies I’m a target
I’m begging just to get away and blast off in a starship

OK you win cause now I'm giving in
No I won't stop you go and chase all that oblivion

keep your politics and crappy ideology
this ain’t even what I call life...it’s a mockery
Track Name: What If I Told You
verse 1

what if I told you you could distrust the government
and still not believe all the bullshit that others coming with

what if I told you your suspicious rants are just that
and not enough data to consider so they just fall flat

what if I told you every claim must have its own merit
biases is baggage that will not make evidence apparent

it seems you’re dragging down the conversation with this current
wave of paranoia so it hampers you from ever learning

what if I told you you suffered from dunning kruger effect
so experts in any given field you can’t respect

I bet you think that all your debunking is valid
but I see nothing with balance just a bunch of word salad

just a ballad of misconstrued notions
overstatements and speculations that rile up your compromised emotions

Look I understand the world is scary but is latching on to every conspiracy theory really necessary

Chorus
What if I told you none of the things you say expose truth
it’s quite the opposite homie...they just expose you

your paranoia informs ya... what you think is true
is only a reflection of the fear and you don’t have a clue

what if I told you you’re not a truth seeker
you calling people dumb see you’re not that bright either

I think you need a breather…till you figure this out
and really think about it all and start injecting some doubt


verse 2

what if I told you our physical senses are not infallible
in fact we’re easily fooled... our memories are malleable

subject to be altered by the passage of time
and other factors that contribute to us changing our minds

and if you think that I’m lying go and study up on neuroscience
see why your reliance on eyewitness claims is not guidance

so when people say they saw a ghost or UFO
apply a skeptical tone and see how conversations go

what if I told you you’re practically unbalanced
opinions are corrupted cause you’re factually challenged

what’s worse is that you hardly ever seem to care
about the sources of your information when you share

they say that I’m not fair..because i scrutinize to brutalize
and label every foolish notion just a pack of stupid lies

But if you' want to hear a sorry i apologize
I wouldn't hold my breath cause you'll be waiting for a long time


Chorus
What if I told you none of the things you say expose truth
it’s quite the opposite homie...they just expose you

your paranoia informs ya... what you think is true
is only a reflection of the fear and you don’t have a clue

what if I told you you’re not a truth seeker
you calling people dumb see you’re not that bright either

I think you need a breather…till you figure this out
and really think about it all and start injecting some doubt
Track Name: Big Daddy Reaper
YOU CAN FIND ME STALKING BLOOD SOAKED BATTLEFIELDS
WAR TORN ENVIRONMENTS AND ANYWHERE THAT BLOOD SPILLS

ANYWHERE YOU SAVAGE LITTLE MONKEYS GOT YOUR ASS KILLED
I’LL BE STANDING PATIENTLY WAITING TO GET MY QUOTA FILLED

SILENTLY STROLLING DOWN THOSE HOSPITAL WARDS
SEEKING OUT THE ONES THAT’S TERMINAL TO GIVE THEIR REWARDS

AND GIVE A WINK RIGHT AT THE ONES THAT AVOID
TO LET THEM KNOW THAT THE NEXT TIME THAT I SEE EM I’M A TAKE THEM ONBOARD

IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC BODIES SO WEAK THAT THEY SHREDDED
OVER THE SHOULDERS OF PARAMEDICS SAYING FORGET

SHE’S MINE NOW THERE IS NOTHING MORE YOU CAN DO TO SAVE HER
I’LL TAKE HER WITH ME IT’S NOT A PITY DO YOU A FAVOR

THE HEART OF EVERY SINGLE TRAGEDY THAT YOU SEE
IN THE CENTER OF ALL THAT SPECTACLE, IS WHERE I’LL BE

I’M RIGHT WHERE YOU NEEDING ME THE MOST
TO BRING PEACE TO THE SUFFERING DRAW LIFE TO A CLOSE




CHORUS

SOMETIMES YOU LOVE ME
THEN OTHER TIMES YOU HATE ME

SOMETIMES YOU RUN FROM ME
OTHER TIMES YOU RUN EMBRACE ME

I’VE BEEN HERE SINCE THE BEGINNING
WHAT I'VE NOTICED LATELY

IS THAT THE NEED FOR MY SERVICES
HAS RISEN GREATLY

NOT A FLY SWATTER COSMIC EXECUTIONER
IT'S NEVER ME I JUST CLEAN UP THINGS WHEN LIFE IS THROUGH WITH YA

I'M RIGHT WHERE YOU'RE NEEDING ME THE MOST
TO BRING PEACE TO THE SUFFERING AND DRAW TO A CLOSE

VERSE 2

I HOVERED IN THE SKIES ON THE DAY OF 9/11
TO WITNESS PLANES ON A MISSION OF MURDER SOAR THROUGH THE HEAVENS

i WAS WALKING RIGHT BESIDE THAT MOTORCADE WHEN KENNEDY GOT SPRAYED
A NATION MOURNING IN GRIEF IT’S JUST ANOTHER DAY

YOUR LIFE IN COMPARISON IS A FLEETING SECOND
AND HALF OF THAT IS THE TIME THAT IT TAKES FOR YOU TO WRECK IT

COSMIC ENTITY...LIFESPAN INFINITY
NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO DON’T THINK YOU’RE EVER GETTING RID OF ME

SOME BITCH AND MOAN AND PLEAD THEIR CASE WHEN THEIR TIME IS UP
OTHER’S LAY IN AGONY COMPLAINING THAT ENOUGH'S ENOUGH

SOME THINK THAT MURDER IS THE CURE FOR ALL THAT BOTHERS THEM
SOMEWHERE SOMEONE IS PLOTTING REVENGE ON THOSE THAT SLAUGHTERED FRIENDS

TO ME IT NEVER MATTERS WHAT’S THE MOTIVATION
THEIR TIME IS UP AND i’M TAKING THEM WITH NO HESITATION

HUMANITY IS ON A ONE WAY RIDE TO DECIMATION
SO I BUILT AN ARMY OF REAPERS AND WE GON BE HERE WAITING

CHORUS

SOMETIMES YOU LOVE ME
THEN OTHER TIMES YOU HATE ME

SOMETIMES YOU RUN FROM ME
OTHER TIMES YOU RUN EMBRACE ME

I’VE BEEN HERE SINCE THE BEGINNING
WHAT I'VE NOTICED LATELY

IS THAT THE NEED FOR MY SERVICES
HAS RISEN GREATLY

NOT A FLY SWATTER COSMIC EXECUTIONER
IT'S NEVER ME I JUST CLEAN UP THINGS WHEN LIFE IS THROUGH WITH YA

I'M RIGHT WHERE YOU'RE NEEDING ME THE MOST
TO BRING PEACE TO THE SUFFERING AND DRAW TO A CLOSE
Track Name: Millions Of People
EVER START TO FEEL LIKE EVERYTHING IS BROKE WITH NO HOPE
AND THE SYSTEM PUT TOGETHER IS ONLY HANGING FROM A THIN ROPE

LOSING CONFIDENCE IN ALL THE FOLKS THAT’S IN AUTHORITY
WHATEVER THEY DECIDE YOU KNOW YOUR WISHES AREN’T PRIORITY

WELL TRUTHFULLY YOU OUGHT TO BE... UP IN ARMS AND ORNERY
BOUT PEOPLE WHO CONSISTENTLY BE FUCKING UP ECONOMIES

AND LOVE TO POINT THE FINGER AT THE ONES THAT’S MOST AFFECTED
GUESS THAT’S WHY THESE DAYS MY INNER THOUGHTS ARE MOSTLY DISCONNECTED

WHO’S GONNA TAKE THE BLAME THIS TIME….WHO WILL BE THE BOOGEY MAN
THE VILLAIN OF THE MONTH IS IT THE PRESIDENT OR IRAN

WHO SHOULD I BE ANGRY AT A RAPPER OR HIS HYPE MAN
CELEBRITIES THAT SAYS SOMETHING STUPID ONLY TO SPITE FANS

IS ANYTHING I’VE EVER SAID GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
WITH LOTS OF OTHER RAPPERS OUT THERE SPEWING ONLY IGNORANCE

FIGHT FOR THE PEOPLE WHEN THE PEOPLE DON’T EVEN GIVE A SHIT
POINT OUT CORRUPTION ONLY TO WATCH THEM ALL CONTINUE IT



















HAVE YOU NOTICED EVERY PRESIDENT GETS LABELED AS AN ANTI-CHRIST
YOU THINK THE PROBLEM STOPS AT THEM THEN YOU AIN’T EVEN THINKING RIGHT

BUT THAT’S REALLY THE ISSUE AIN’T...HOW WE FORMULATE OUR THOUGHTS
TOO MANY TIMES WE LET OUR TRIBALISM TELL US WHO’S AT FAULT

DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICANS I THINK WE’VE HAD ENOUGH OF THEM
YOU THINK THEY REALLY HAVE THE ANSWERS GUESS THAT’S WHY THEY ALWAYS WIN

CAUSE EVERYTHING THEY SAY IS SPIN…...MANUFACTURED TALKING POINTS
NO BETTER THAN EVANGELIST...LIARS STINKING UP THE JOINT

ALMOST LIKE YOU'RE WORSHIPING AT THE FEET OF THESE SCUMBAGS
SPEWING ALL THEIR RHETORIC UNTIL OUR MINDS ARE NUMB AND

CHECK OUT HOW WE GIVE THEM THESE TITLES AND TAX DOLLARS
THAT THEY SHAMELESSLY SPENDING ON WARS WHILE PEOPLE LIVE IN SQUALOR

THEY CAN’T EVEN AGREE TO GET OUR INFRASTRUCTURE FIXED
FUCK THEM ALL MY OPINION THEY CAN EAT A BAG OF DICKS

THE SYSTEM ONLY WORKS IF THE PEOPLE GET IN THE MIX
BUT HOW THE FUCK WE MAKE THAT HAPPEN WHEN PEOPLE ARE NITWITS
Track Name: Man Up
verse1

My father was elusive mostly cause he was abusive
pulling knives out on my mother rageaholic undisputed

did a tour in Vietnam.. had these issues with his mom
and feeling like he wasn't wanted did his way of thinking harm

I guess the things he must have saw really stuck up in to his craw
from my perspective didn’t like him thought his heart was black as tar

my mother had to leave him for fear that one day he’d kill us all
without the money he brought in financially we start to fall

this is a common occurrence the type of disturbance
of many of my peers back then and did the family such disservice

no form of support..financially or otherwise
just lots of drama shaping how the world is seen through children’s eyes

no correspondence with him heard he moved up to New Jersey
started preaching for some church….yeah that right you heard me

the next time I saw him it was in the city morgue
drunk himself to death I guess that’s just was the path that he was on

verse 2
guess my resentment denied me any type contentment
so I grew rowdy and sullen with no sign of repentance

running the street a lot with lots of other broken kids
acting like I had no conscious or a single fuck to give

momma was just trying to live and keep a roof over our heads
so lots of times she can’t keep track of all her sons had ever did
So
we had brushes with the law for having guns and stealing cars
but never hustled drugs because somehow I thought that went too far

after she had left my dad my mother met another man and
and even though he was a good one I just really couldn’t stand em

I felt like who the hell are you to tell me what the fuck to do
you’re not my father as if my father was someone cool

I’m looking back on all that foolishness regretting now
because my step father loved us that’s why he stuck around

and his example’s the reason I am the man I am
him and grandad only men that ever gave a damn


verse 3
I had a baby at the same age that my father was
the mother of my little girl must have ran out of love

cause not long after that she felt like that she had to split
and left me standing with betrayal and feelings of abandonment

yo I was so fucking pissed and angry thoughts would cloud my mind
and all that hate was corrosive brain felt on fire all the time

through all of that though I would never walk out on my child
and leave her fatherless to roam this fucked up planet in the wild

so despite the rage I had to keep the monster caged
refused to go out like my father did.. there is no fucking way

and in a weird sort of sense his life inspired me hence
cause that example kept me far enough from out the abyss

left that old grudge behind dead and kept it mostly buried
because that burden got too heavy for my mind to carry

I just know that if my family’s straight that I’m gonna win
and never says those things about me that I said about him
Track Name: Falling Down
These days I see my life through windows of frustration
for every obstacle my life is full I lose patience

my situation inundated with no-win scenarios
as circumstances turn to shit after seemingly made of gold

my positive outlook is transformed to negative
I’m grasping at the fantasy to live a life I’ll never live

maybe what I lack’s a commitment that I have yet to give
slipping in the darkness of what seems an eternal eclipse

so I turn and I twist and search for what doesn’t exist
some piece of contentment instead all I get is this shit

from where I am to where I need to go today
seems to be measured in distances that’s many more light years away

nothing I can do to reach with any tool I use
no matter what I choose the outcome is that I always lose

I can’t even pretend that this shit isn’t stressing me
the heart of it I’m losing confidence and thinking less of me

chorus

I hold my head up high for the people surrounding me
and that's down with me

I take steps not to trip so they but they see that I'm falling down

I'm falling down
I'm falling down yo

I keep a smile on my face for my friends and my family
to hide the insanity

I stay discreet cause I don't want them to peep
that I'm falling down

I'm falling down
I am falling down

verse 2

My limited options have got me feeling boxed in
as best laid plans and dreams are headed where the stop ends

how do I smile when everything has died inside
although I can’t reveal the struggle to the family and so I hide

keep them distracted with this mask of overconfidence
conceal the way I feel which in reality’s incompetent

and be the shoulder that everyone else can cry on
while life continues with its game and really starts to pile on

health issues arise……many loved ones have died
many times have I tried to shrug it and take it in stride

as all the bonds I’ve made slowly start to slip away
when those that’s closest to me start to notice I don’t look the same

it’s kind of twisted feeling so damn pessimistic
pretending I’m not worried when really my minds drifted

to everybody else these songs are only music
but to me their everything my only hope I gotta use it


chorus

I hold my head up high for the people surrounding me
and that's down with me

I take steps not to trip so they but they see that I'm falling down

I'm falling down
I'm falling down yo

I keep a smile on my face for my friends and my family
to hide the insanity

I stay discreet cause I don't want them to peep
that I'm falling down

I'm falling down
I am falling down


Verse 3

this is my outlet when everything about me spins
the side I hide from friends concealed behind a smile or grin

the artistry that’s buried deep inside the heart of me
influenced by those muses of the struggle that nobody sees

my last bastion of hope... fortress of solitude
a universe of ideas expressed and often misconstrued

without this way to vent I just don’t know what I would do
I’d probably explode from all the rage in fact I know it’s true

is this another dead end// another try that fails
another disappointment story stacked upon a pile of tales

how do I even the scales and produce a victory
when lessons from history teach those thoughts are contradictory

sometimes I micromanage every disadvantage
in an attempt to lessen the load of all of this baggage

the pressure builds and builds until it reach the roof again
the only relief is when I release it with a pad and pen



chorus

I hold my head up high for the people surrounding me
and that's down with me

I take steps not to trip so they but they see that I'm falling down

I'm falling down
I'm falling down yo

I keep a smile on my face for my friends and my family
to hide the insanity

I stay discreet cause I don't want them to peep
that I'm falling down

I'm falling down
I am falling down

I'm falling down and I can't get up
sometimes it feels like I'm not man enough

I do my best but I still feel damned as fuck
at the end of the day yo I can't give up

I'm falling down and I can't get up
sometimes it feels like I'm not man enough

I do my best but I still feel damned as fuck
at the end of the day yo I can't give up
