Track Name: Oh Hi feat. Shaggy Haired
(Boon):
Are you serious? Eh yo, let's introduce this shit, come on!
Oh hi, my name is Boon, and I'm here to slang tunes
like bitches in saloons yapping in a blue tooth
Trying to have a convo, hell yeah we got flows
It comes from the windmills over that front leg,
Back to the better days, Doc Os & Ochoa, what can I say?
What can I say, I keep it in the business
This is why I hate taking the beginning to shit
Got to make a stand point
whether you're sober or high off the hash joint
Call it a spliff,
Roll it with the ligget, broke as shit
Repping it for the starving artists that never really had shit
but the rhythm, yeah I stemmed it from the classics

(Ocho Chorus):
I would touch the sky, well
Lord knows I've tried, and
I would climb a mountain
if it brings you back to me,
if only you would see

(Osc):
Hi, my name is Doc Os, sorta like a rock star,
border line weirdo, but I play it off well
Too many people thinking quality's a lost art
Guess it's why they're not me, I don't need a slot car
4 wheel drive take me off terrain,
Take a vitamin, you're off your game
When me and Boonhamin play,
you can see the jaws dropping,
Look on the faces like we're fucking awesome
Not being cocky, just how it is,
Eating pizza that I just got from Sid
We're the shit, and you're no Sherlock
Making music like erotica for jerk-offs
Swerve on, like a canyon road
Burn on the rubber like thats too slow
Turn on the tubby tele-tube for the show
Drugs and music, get that glow

(Ocho Chorus):
I would touch the sky, well
Lord knows I've tried, and
I would climb a mountain
if it brings you back to me,
if only you would see

(All Chant):
I just want to celebrate! (x8)

Track Name: Illusions
(Sample from Aqua -"Cartoon Heros"):
We are what we're supposed to be,
Illusions of your fantasy,
Our words are lives that speak and say
what we do is what you wish to do

(Osc):
I'm on a plane,
and if I ever come back down,
I'm a launch it again
So I'm just insane,
but it works for me,
and if you can't merge stay the fuck out of my lane
Sour Jane, you can have it how you want it
Ahead of the pack, aint getting it back from us
In fact, they never had it,
we stacking it up and shit
Short skirts and tight shirts, what a summer it is
Pour another drink, just for the fun of it
So hot that I burn you through the oven mitt
Don't make me take anything to a place
where you don't wanna sit
I've got a castle and oasis of indulgences
Like it, better take a photograph
I'm gonna let you focus in
I don't really care if its fair, I just hold my grip
of music like sun shine, y'all just want to soak it in
Put the lotion on your skin, yeah girl, rub it in

(Sample from Aqua -"Cartoon Heros"):
We are what we're supposed to be,
Illusions of your fantasy,
Our words are lives that speak and say
what we do is what you wish to do

(Boon):
Above the clouds
Higher than the atmosphere
Looking down, everything is looking hella clear
Blunted, I'm sitting higher than a chandelier
trapped in the headlights, yup, I'm a frozen deer
I need to keep mobile and just follow my folly
but Lupe's a dick, that dude can't even olly
"Think you can beat him at skate?"
Yeah, probably
"But seriously?"
Yeah, Honestly
So I'm a macho man, I can smell these cowards
They tipping like the twin towers in their final hour
You thinking that we sour, we aint no patched up kids
We just some mad knockers like Nancy and Sid
So I'm more focused than a bottle of Ritalin
Tougher than a militant that joined army just to say that he went
Yeah I'm blinder than squints
but I feel more compassionate than a kid losing his parents

(Sample from Aqua -"Cartoon Heros"):
We are what we're supposed to be,
Illusions of your fantasy,
Our words are lives that speak and say
what we do is what you wish to do

Track Name: Blackout
(Ocho):
When the lights go out in the city,
Are you gonna be there with me?
Tell me are you down with the gritty?
Are you gonna be on my team?
I've got the world in the palm of my hand
and it's slipping, slipping
like a grain of sand
When the lights go out in the city,
Are you gonna be there with me?
Tell me are you down with the gritty?
Are you gonna be on my team?
I've got the world in the palm of my hand
and it's slipping, slipping
like a grain of sand
Are you, are you gonna be there with me?
Tell me are you down with the gritty?
Are you gonna be on my team?
Are you gonna be on my team?

(Osc)
Don't Give me a brain aneurysm
We got the henny for that you damn kitten
Serpent in the garden
Armageddon wrist cut
between the DJ, bartender, stripper, bouncer tip cup
Open my fist up, blow away this dust
Poking the skin like a ghost with the thin touch
the undead walk within the goose pimple chicken lumps
Home again, what's it been?
Water rinse up
Drive slow in the ride
Roll up, let the rims stunt
'78 Ford box truck with a bent bumper
It rumbles it roars, it tears up the bourough
then slumber with --
And scare dumb squirrels

(Ocho):
When the lights go out in the city,
Are you gonna be there with me?
Tell me are you down with the gritty?
Are you gonna be on my team?
I've got the world in the palm of my hand
and it's slipping, slipping
like a grain of sand

(Boon):
When the lights burned out,
there was no doubt
I'm standing on the top to shout:
Freedom!
But now I'm here
and these ghosts keep haunting me
The Army, the Navy, the Military, honestly
You got to fight for your city
and your country
Freedom of the free, that's freedom of the peace
But with all these people that were caught up in the act,
I hold the first amendment, Come on, that's a fact
I say what I please,
You can't contest to that
Or else you'll end up in the depths of a sand trap
before the lives that are born to this society
Its over when the lights burned out in the city

(Ocho):
When the lights go out in the city,
Are you gonna be there with me?
Tell me are you down with the gritty?
Are you gonna be on my team?
I've got the world in the palm of my hand
and it's slipping, slipping
like a grain of sand

Track Name: Will You Stop feat. Es-K
(Boon):
I used to kick it with a lot of kids
that spoke about the basics
It got us no where, come on, let's face it
I'd rather kick it with the ones in advanced placement
On another level
Above the basement
And now they say home is where you make it
Its shake and bake kid, but I bet you help
And now I never had money weigh down my belt
But that's no reason to raise a voice and yell
It'll get better even when the sun rises in the worst weather
Keep your head up brother
and I can always tell you one thing;
It could always be worse when your phone don't ring
Now you heard about your home boy that was rolling in a hearse;
At the end of the day it could always be worse; yeah
it could always be worse ... it could always be worse

(Oh I was low, at times, oh I was high, I was low)

(2BIT):
I'm looking for a single way out of the loop
Never comprehending the rest of the men in the troop
Missing like an ice cream missing a scoop
2 by a couple pigeons that was flying the coop, ah
Whatever seperates men from the dudes
that was single file in line before you
The unemployment style still annoying
to the rest of these people that was still destroying
Rap battle plus habitats
Everybody else in here, they grab the scratches
A little bit of something greater
than the bombs that was dropped on Pearl Harbor and Grenada
It was nutty from the get go
Split your head wide
Everybody that would say they bedstuy
crew was better than the kids on the West Coast
It's still nutty as fuck
But they go (go) down quickly
Everybody else involved still can't spit these - flows
Equally matched with rhymes that was still killing them
was steady intact, and that's that

(Oh I was low, at times, oh I was high, I was low)

(Osc):
Broken Arrow in your bone marrow
Covered in magpies, the lone scarecrow
So terrible, no one ever cared to hear it,
Fire dance, were wolf spirit
Let it go,
like the ones waiting on a new single from Mystikal
DANGER! Watch yourself! Show me what you're working with!
Figaro! You know we serving 'em
Permanent (Sure it is); Guaranteed for life
Psychiatry of the sword, therapy of the knife
Rife with heresy, sex, drugs, and rock & roll
Drop it low, dirty hip-hop for charity
The flock has flown now I just watch her stare at me
She's on the honor roll at my academy
Fighting with her sister over me just like Jerry Springer
and just like every scenester, she got an attitude
Faster food ground up through a plastic tube
Black and blue, they're all gonna laugh at you
hunting for the duckets, its time to stack a few,
WWSD like what Shaq would do

Track Name: Suspicious feat. Adrift & Mama G
(Ocho):
Every time I look over my shoulders
Sends a chill up and down my spine
Every day seems to blend together
I promise you I'm not losing my mind

(Boon):
As my eyes awoke, I knew it was a new day
Finally, I wouldn't lead myself astray
I'm sick of the pain, take the mistakes
Say goodbye as the darkness fades
My mind is always playing tricks on me
like the Geto Boyz with the Halloween dreams
93 until infinity or 93 ways to defeat your enemy,
but then again, I let it be
Take action to the others around
Karma's a bitch representing the crown
Not a king of the town, I'm not trying to be
but my fists are up pound for pound:
Mike Tyson steez
Just wait til you see The Hangover 3
Open your eyes after a night of roofies
to demonic sleep, lost; nervous;
like a lobotomy saying, "Hello, dreams"

(Ocho):
Every time I look over my shoulders
Sends a chill up and down my spine
Every day seems to blend together
I promise you I'm not losing my mind

(Adrift):
Now that's a promise that most can't make
cause people lose their minds every single damn day
Though most can't say, at least their reaching for better
between a vendetta to get even and let it breathe for a second
For good reason, its legendary
Here the blessing,
to find a balance whats missing
piece it together
like Shel Silverstein
However the side walk ends begins anew
through a dreamer in need of adventure
But beast with a method that would seem to be baddest
And keeping with that I've seen a people weaving through traffic
Once believed as a pattern of routine and old habits
now just represents the creed of a believer in action
A Phoenix in ashes
We get a chance at rebirth
and if were lucky manage to learn what can and can't work
Understanding its worth, one day at a time
Though imagination is power for tricks it plays on our minds

(Ocho):
Every time I look over my shoulders
Sends a chill up and down my spine
Every day seems to blend together
I promise you I'm not losing my mind

(DJ cuts by DOM)

(Osc):
I'm not crazy, you are
Inflict flame upon the lantern if it's too dark
She's too tart like the rhubarb
up and down the boulevard in the new car
Managers and A&R's tell us, "You Stars"
but we stayed independent and its been a minute
Too far gone; rugged like a schoolyard brawl
In a rhythm its the solar and the lunar
Fuck 'em all, who you gonna call
If I don't do nothing else, I'm gonna ball
Bread breaking, come get a taste of it
Competition completely devastated
Purple elegance brought a glimpse of herbal intelligence
and you're getting older;
It's just dirt off my shoulder

(Ocho):
Every time I look over my shoulders
Sends a chill up and down my spine
Every day seems to blend together
I promise you I'm not losing my mind

Track Name: Open Door feat. Michal Menert
(Boon & Doc):
One door open, one door close
Drink it up and feed your soul
Rich man or poor man clothes
Live that opportunity
One door open, one door close
Drink it up and fill your soul
Rich man or poor man clothes
Live that opportunity

(Boon)
I'm seeing things through one step at a time
Taking every opportunity in this lifeline
Following my views just like a paradigm
everyone's got beliefs but they're probably not like mine
Why try to cloud the minds of others?
We all got different mothers in the truthful sense
Especially if we're talking about earth where the pollution sits
But that's all contradictive
Especially when I say, when I say shh-
Especially when I say, when I say shh-
But we're here for a certain amount of minutes
And I can't count on hours cause they're just not ticking
So many curveballs the plotlines thicken
Thanks to the theatre geeks for helping me finish

(Boon & Doc):
One door open, one door close
Drink it up and feed your soul
Rich man or poor man clothes
Live that opportunity
One door open, one door close
Drink it up and fill your soul
Rich man or poor man clothes
Live that opportunity

(Osc)
Roll it up and twist it
I'm on a mission; don't care if you don't understand it
cause we all got to get some, yup, huh
Call it superstition
Word to the wall of your vision
all in the day, falling away
know there's no rest for the wicked
Some of ti can be such a struggle
reach to emerge from the rubble
concentrate on the target like a funnel
There was never any doubt that I love you
My life, my life, my life, my life, my life
I want to see you underneath the moon in the twighlight
womb to the room to the tomb with the highlights
and everything is better when you are at my side
Used to run and try to chase it like a firefly
now I stay at home and blaze it; look at my red eyes
I am high and mighty when I write a line
Sword slice your dress off and spell "Oscify"
Everything's gonna be alright, rock-a-bye
late evening, waiting for the sun to rise
What am I making these assumptions like
I should go ahead and maybe try to touch her, "hi"

(Boon & Doc):
One door open, one door close
Drink it up and feed your soul
Rich man or poor man clothes
Live that opportunity
One door open, one door close
Drink it up and fill your soul
Rich man or poor man clothes
Live that opportunity

Track Name: So Fly feat. Shaggy Haired
(Ocho):
Why, oh why am I so fly?
I don't even have to try
Everyday I'm feeling so high
Smile on my face, kiss this world goodbye

(Boon):
I'm a superstar, well in my own way
I'd rather be broke and donate all of my change
than to be an asshole always searching for fame, you know?
Adding the links to the broken chain
but what can I say?
That's how we stay fly
Got to do what I do just to get by
Thanks to Talib Kweli for feeding that line
Props to the greats for helping me with these rhymes
If I had money flowing like a spicket
I would give it, even if time was ticking, it'd be good for business
Networking is a blessing representing the greatest sentance
Fly like Ochoa on your rhyme sessions

(Ocho):
Why, oh why am I so fly?
I don't even have to try
Everyday I'm feeling so high
Smile on my face, kiss this world goodbye

(Osc)
I'm a superstar (with a new guitar)
Well, in my own way
Still stuck in the stone age
How do we get to this level
I guess we're just incredible, I guess its jsut medicinal ish
So good just like a beautiful day
Like if you want to do it, then you shouldn't wait
And who is to say, until they're staring truth in the face
All I know is, I won't stop until it's over
And I don't know if it sounds wrong,
but I love these Rocky Mountain tops
And I'll be drinkgin til the fountain stops
And we always keep it bouncing;
Observatory, 3rd story, 40 ounces
Burn the glory, you can have it for your strawmen
or lose your ass in a battle with Boonhamin

(Ocho):
Why, oh why am I so fly?
I don't even have to try
Everyday I'm feeling so high
Smile on my face, kiss this world goodbye

We're all superstars
Whether or not you know it,
you should spend your whole life trying to show it
And say fuck it to just always being important
You're better for it and more clever to never having snorted
So if its all some tough talk in front of bitches
The secret is you'll live to see a little more of this shit
The flyest, noncompliant, and riding a wave of
Sublime rhyme writing and striking and warning paper
The best days takes to something you never pay for
Bit more than you can chew and got more than you paid for
This is more than a finish line for you to race for
This shit's a legacy, the flyer shit you got to wait for

(Ocho):
Why, oh why am I so fly?
I don't even have to try
Everyday I'm feeling so high
Smile on my face, kiss this world goodbye

Track Name: Moving On feat. Street Thief Productions
(Ocho):
Everything that I been through,
Took me to the place I had to get to
Sorry if you're stuck back there
I'll be moving on, yeah

I'm moving on, humming tunes to these old songs
Throw it on the turntable, sing along
Its hard to say if I'm the same person or became strong
Cause I'm done getting played like a pawn
I've been broken down (tell me who hasn't)
And even in my own town (I've caused havoc)
Started to mute the sound (too much static)
I'm done with depression (time for laughing)
I'm not striving for the glitz,
in fact, I'm hardly asking for shit
I'm a lyricist pushing points
even though half the time they contradict
Saying goodbye to the ones that got me into this
and thanks to Are You Serious, I'm done with the foes
But I guess its al about the path that you chose
and what troubles arose
But these are the things that make us as people grow
Pass by laughing as I kick stones down the road

(Ocho):
Everything that I been through,
Took me to the place I had to get to
Sorry if you're stuck back there
I'll be moving on, yeah

(Osc)
I'm on that, what do you call it?
Long trip, walking along my own path,
hoping to god I don't slip
Hustlaholic, loving the song she hum in the darkness
And that beat brung the thump of my heart along with it (conga rhythm)
Finally I feel stronger
Leave behind the anger in the place where it won't cause hurt
I wish that we all could let it linger;
but time waits for nobody on this green earth
I'm sure a few things never change
life's a record, let it play, let it play
Forge on or get left in the rain
Forgone conclusion, its better this way
Still its hard not to watch all the other ones
grab at straws in the shadows for a dream; but nothing comes
he runs it ragged til the motor blows
Pass by laughing as I kick stones down the road

(Ocho):
Everything that I been through,
Took me to the place I had to get to
Sorry if you're stuck back there
I'll be moving on, yeah

Track Name: Tonight's Agenda: 2AM feat. G1
(Osc):
Uh, I've seen the crooked eye at the trough
like I did the helicopter to dry off
Whatever, I'm a eat regaurdless
Get her drunk from a whiff of the stardust
I'm just a little more sicker
Fuck you up with a drink of malt liquor
Sip it up, pre game, Platte River
Splash in it, catch a cat fish, uh
Um, let me get a bite
Hit it right if it fit inside
Baby, you and I really screw it tight like a new lightbulb
Don't ask me if I am a psycho
I love it cause she got a double wide load
What do I know, day trip summertime glow
I make you jump up and down like a kangeroo
and I make you yell my name out when I'm spanking you

(2bit):
I'm blacking out in here again
This party's barely started and its only 2am
Won't be invited back again
Whole night on autopilot
Climb in bed with your girlfriend

(Boon):
I like my beats like I like my bitches
Filthy, but rich as shit
And my rhymes, well I hit em with the
G-g-g-g-g-g - glitches
When I'm on another level, feel like a Simpson
Evergreen Terrace, that's where we're living
In a state of loners, stoners, boarders, quarters, hoarders
Flip them quarters
Let's have a drink tonight
Get lit brighter that the rave lights
Throwing out raps make sure it fits right;
Smoking up blunts; roll that shit tight
Say, "Roll that shit tight!"
Now that I'm sure that you heard these words
I'm a hit the dance floor and do the worm
Aerial kick, now it's your turn
I'm a call your mom fat and just say, "Burn!"

(2bit):
I'm blacking out in here again
This party's barely started and its only 2am
Won't be invited back again
Whole night on autopilot
Climb in bed with your girlfriend

(Osc):
We're gonna have some fun
Gonna get fucked up
Need a sippy cup
cause I spilled my punch
(Boon & Osc):
Here's to the shots;
Here's to the beers
Here's to the cup that I filled with Everclear
Oh dear, better show no fear
Booze flow like a faucet
But where are your morals
I don't know, I guess I lost it
Cause ever since we got caught up with this pop shit
We started to bring the hotness
Now we got everyone's heads knockin
And off the topic I need another drink
Who cares what others thinK
they can clean my sink
After the after party when the puke turns pink
Damn, that's disgusting
But you know something, it's been a damn good night
the chicks were right, and the lines were white,
and the lights were bright
And I didn't even have to get in a fight

(2bit):
I'm blacking out in here again
This party's barely started and its only 2am
Won't be invited back again
Whole night on autopilot
Climb in bed with your girlfriend

This party's WHAT?
This party's wild
Don't break it, baby just shake it
Stay naked 'til we all kicked out
Track Name: Definitely Old School feat. Shaggy Haired
(Boon):
I used to listen to the Sex Pistols, bumped em in the tape deck
Same with Op Ivy and the Rancid mix
Thanks to the bigger brother turn me on to music
I swear I'll never abuse it, unless I'm on my battle tip
Started with the Dr. Octagon, the paramedic fetus of the East
Until I bumped Tribe with some Biggie beats
I tried Snoop, the capital S oh yes, so fresh
N-double-O-P D-O-double-G
And now I just flex when I grab my own mic
Yeah I hold that shit tight
cause they just some men that's on the mic, right?
While Warren G was regulating, & Pac was wearing chains
While Dre was speculating that you fools are perpetrating
I never tried the purp, Bun B knew its worth
and that's why hip-hop will have ruined this earth

(Ocho):
Well it was just my imagination;
Running away with me;
And if it wasn't for
The soul, the punk, the jam, the funk!
Then we would never be one big family

(Osc):
He said don't push me cause I'm close; Grandmaster
"What would you like to order?", she was asking,
I said, "Ba ba ba, I want to be sedated!"
They had us hammer dancing in the play pen
The first rap cd that I had was Mobb Deep (Infamous)
But it was my father who brought hip-hop to me
My mother loved Bonnie Raitt
in the bar at the jukebox, looking for a song to play
What was I looking at? Girls
I'm just a poor boy,
enamorated with the sound of your voice
Alicia Keys really speak to me
Peep the frequency, 313 ask about a sweet emcee
California girl with a Pekinese travel to Albuquerque
to flirt with me and Grieves
Can't devy Rhymesayers inspired majors
Get your ice cream high, 5 flavors!

(Ocho):
Well it was just my imagination;
Running away with me;
And if it wasn't for
The soul, the punk, the jam, the funk!
Then we would never be one big family

La la la la la la la la la la la da
