Track Name: RICOCHET (feat. Proximity Effect)
SHE TAKES PRIDE IN LETTING ME FALL…
AND I COULD NOT SURVIVE IN THE END
AND IF I KNEW THE CONSEQUENCE, AND ALL THAT STEMS FROM IGNORANCE
WHY WOULD I GO THROUGH IT AGAIN…?

I AM THE HUNTER WHO WAS SET IN MY WAY
I AM THE HUNTER BUT I FELL TO DISMAY
LOST THE SCENT; WANDERED ASTRAY
TOOK-AIM; MISFIRED; AND NOW I PAY
WOUNDED BY MY OWN RICOCHET
I AM THE HUNTER WHO WAS SET IN MY WAY
I AM THE HUNTER BUT I FELL TO DISMAY

GET-UP BEFORE DAWN PUT THE CAMOFLAUGE ON
GRAB MY WEAPON AND I’M STEPPIN OUT THE DOOR
I’M GONE..
INTO THE WILDERNESS, INTO THE WILD
CREEP THROUGH THE MUD N IT’S ALL DEFILED
STYLE IS MILD… SO I BLEND ON IN
SINCE BACK THEN- TRAINED AND WHEN
I KEPT TO THE STEPS THAT MY FATHER SAID
SILENT I CREPT – AND I STAYED WELL FED
AIM WAS SET INSIDE MY HEAD
GAME WAS HIT – I SHOT IT BLED
AIM WAS SET INSIDE MY HEAD
GAME WAS HIT I SHOT IT BLED

STEADY… AT EASE
ON THE TRAIL LOW AT MY KNEES
READY AND WISE
THIS I KNEW
ALL MY THOUGHTS WERE CLEAR
TIL I MET YOU

BEAUTIFUL SHE…WANDERED IN MY SIGHTS
FOCUS OF ALL MY SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
SET A TRAP FOR HER
BUT IT WAS SET FOR ME
MY ATTACK WAS HEARD
FROM MOVING DEPERATELY
SLEEP DEPRIVATION; SETTING IN
I SAW MY REFLECTION – GETTING THIN
DULLING THE SHARPNESS OF MY SKILL
BUT THE TIME WENT BY AND THERE WAS STILL NO KILL
GOING HUNGRY – THEN I LOST MY WAY
AFRAID AND WEAK – AND I BECAME THE PREY

WHILE TRYIN TO TRACK THIS BLACK ILLUSION
FURTHER INTO SECLUSION
FELT SO SURE ABOUT THIS- OUR FUSION
BUT IT WAS JUST CONFUSION…
FELT SO SURE ABOUT THIS OUR FUSION...
BUT IT WAS JUST CONFUSION.
Track Name: The World We Know (feat. Proximity Effect)
SCIENCE OF SLEEP AND MATHEMATICS OF MIND
LIVIN LUCID DREAMS, WHO CALLED IT MAN –KIND – NESS NEXT TO TEST, AND TESTAMENTS TIE
MEN TO MANY THINGS; SO GO ON… TESTIFY
PUSHIN PAPERS TO PEDDLE THE PETALS FALLIN TO THORNS
MOVIN METAL TO MEDDLE MEANWHILE YOUR COUNTRY MOURNS
THEY SAID DON’T SETTLE UNSETTLED
AND NEVER SETTLE FOR LESS
YES TELL ME NEVER SAY NEVER
BUT I SAY NEVERTHELESS
NEVER REST FROM DURESS
TO IMPRESS AND PRESS UPON
NEVER SEE THE BREAK OF DAWN
SLANT MY EYES CAUSE IT’S ON
CAN’T STOP, CROP-TO-CROP, DISGRACE THE TOP
AS WE CASE TO CASE DROP, SO HOLLYWOOD CAN SHOP
RESOLUTION; NEVER A REVOLUTION
REVOLVE TO DISSOLUTION, JUST FOOLS FOR EVOLUTION
POLLUTION OF THE MIND EDUCATED BY THE BLIND
DESECRATED AND CONFINED…
BY YOUR FREEDOM OF SPEECH…
AND I’M RUNNING SAID I’M RUNNING AWAY

AFTER MILLIONS OF YEARS THAT WE’VE SPUN AROUND THE SAME SUN
BOTH OUR LEADERS AND THUGS STILL REACH FOR A GUN (2X)

HEAD UP, LEARN WHAT’S UP AND DON’T MAKE NO APOLOGY
FED UP WE HAD ENOUGH OF THIS MOB PSYCHOLOGY
SCIENCE OF SLEEP AND MATHEMATICS OF MIND
LIVIN LUCID DREAMS, WHO CALLED IT MAN –KIND – NESS NEXT TO TEST, AND TESTAMENTS TIE
MEN TO MANY THINGS; SO GO ON… TESTIFY
BEST DRESSSED IN LIES, HEAD PRESSED AND WISE
OPENING THIRD EYES, BUT SEE THE SAME THING
… KING AFTER KING; MOVING PAWNS UPON GRAVES
MET A MAN UP IN THE MIRROR- WHO WAS ONE OF THE SLAVES
TRIGGER-FINGER… APPLYING THE PRESSURE
MISDIRECT FAITH… AND A BULLET TO MEASURE
MEASURE MANHOOD WITH EVIL INSTEAD OF GOOD
AND PLEASURE MISUNDERSTOOD IT GOES HOOD TO HOOD
BUCK-SHOTS, BLOCK-TO-BLOCK, AND RACE THE CLOCK
AS THEY FACE TO FACE TALK; BODIES OUTLINE IN CHALK
WHO NEEDS NIGHTLY NEWS?
YOU’S THE SAME EVERYDAY
AND I’M RUNNING SAID I’M RUNNING AWAY
Track Name: Locust(s
IN YOUR MOMENT OF PLEASURE...
IN YOUR NEW TIME OF GREED...
YOU MUST WATCH FOR THE DECEPTION
CAUSE IN YOUR FIELDS THEY WILL BREED.
WATCH THE CROPS ON GROWIN HIGHER
DONE PUT IN WORK INTO THE SOIL
DIRT UNDERNEATH YOUR FINGERNAILS...
AND NOW IT'S TIME TO TOIL
THEY'RE SWARMING IN!

FROM A SEED TO-EACH
SUNSET-OUTSIDE
WITH THE DAYS OF TIME
I SEE THE PRIDE RESIDE
STEADY STACKIN AS IM MACKIN
TO THE POINT OF NO RETURN
THERE-DOWN-DEEP-YA
IT’S-TIME TO LEARN.
INSIDE THE FIELDS OF MY WICKED DAYS
LIES AN ENEMY A PLAGUE OF THE
EVIL WAYS
JUST SOME SMALL THING
BUT IT GETS THE CREW
RETURN LIKE AN ARMY AND DESTROY
ALL OF YOU
DESTROY ALL OF ME
UNLESS I BRING GUARD
AND THE FIGHT IS HARD
MAINTAIN THE YARD
KEEPING DEAD THINGS CHARRED
BURNING ALL THAT’S IN THE WAY
SEEIN MY FOES AND GOES ALL WAYS
RIGHT THERE DOWN DEEP
AT THE BASE
AT THE ROOT
WHAT YOU SEW YOU REAP.
SOME SMALL THING
LEAVE IT THERE UNCHECKED
IT MULTIPLIES-RETURNS
LEAVES EVERYTHING WRECKED!

WHEN YOU'RE...
FEELING THE SEASON...
WHEN YOUR SUMMER WIND BLOWS THROUGH
SMILE AT YOUR HARVEST BUT REMEMBER
THAT SOMEONE ELSE IS WATCHING TOO
YOU WILL NEVER KNOW THE MOMENT
NO YOU WILL NEVER KNOW THE HOUR
JUST WHEN YOU DROP YOUR GUARD
THEY'LL STRIKE-
SO SLEEP NAIVE AND THEY'LL DEVOUR...
THEY'RE SWARMING IN!

APETITE NEVERENDING
WATCH THEM FEAST
ONE-BY-ONE
TAKE IT PIECE BY PIECE
HUNGER NEVER ENDS BUT IT
ALL DEPENDS
ON THE WAY WE CHOOSE
CUZ CAUTION DEFENDS
BUILD BAD HABITS AND A
STUBBORN MIND
IF YOU CALL BACK THE THINGS
YOU HAD LEFT BEHIND
(THEN IT) FLIES ON IN (AND)
STARTS TO UNWIND
IT’S JUST A MATTER OF TIME
…SAID A MATTER OF TIME.
