Kenya Cross Scribbling Idiots is a group I discovered when Theory Hazit came out with Extra Credit. Scribbling Idiots was a life saver for me when I was fed up with the junk offered on the radio. Good Morning, Mourning is a worth album that I enjoy listening to within my life's soundtrack. It is clear that they took great care in the production and musicianship of this latest release. SI...til I die! Favorite track: Good Morning Mourning (Remix).

Paul Bunyan Scribbling Idiots return with a banger. Comtemplating the loss of their brother, Ruffian due to an accident 2 years ago. They speak on God's grace, keeping a level head on the brevity of life. S.I. holds nothing back with Elias soulfully singing the chorus. Welcoming grief with open arms but not giving into despair. Favorite track: Good Morning Mourning.

Verse: Sheisty Khrist The Devil asked me what's my asking price, Told me "after life there's no afterlife." I laughed twice he laughed thrice, One half of me the path of a geist, the other half ice. You'd have to have a wife in Bath to math my half-life, You'd have to fast and math the wrath to match my last life. I ascertained it's like an acid in my brain, like I'm sipping' a flask of acid rain mixed with aspartame. My pain moves faster than Master Cane's master with a massive cane, When mass is gained you amass again. I mask my pain at mass where the pastors train, A bastard praying so fast he could of passed a train. The mind negates the nine gates, time waits for no man, I'm listening to Tom Waits trying to make a snowman. Don't want to go outside it's like I'm snowed in, 'Cause even with a winter coat the winter cold'll blow in. Yeah! The winter cold'll blow wind, The old men invented code that's "when it's cold you go in". See what's a bold plan to an old man, but a Old Gold can you can hold in both hands. Sleeps the cousin, but deep guzzlin' keeps you buzzing, Sheep run away when he sleeps so he keeps a dozen. On the same nightstand where he keeps the 'Tussin, He keeps tussling, weep in his sleep such a deep discussion. The seasons don't die they merely change, I'm clearly estranged from reality nearly deranged. My prognosis is God coast the cosmoses, When God's the closest God's ghost is God's gnosis. See this is rain, snow, and hail, I'ma reign so that Hell's soaked in rain, and snow, and hail. The game's going frail, In a Kangol and Shelltoes I came to tell you lames in the game to go hell. (Wake up) And stop sleeping on me.

Verse 1: Cas Metah We came in with gauntlets, made them into omelets stained in my optics are the pains of progress. I know it take losses to make profits but when nations facing conquered they playing Contra. If you play with contraband pray you ain't a pauper population top guns got Wall Street stocked up. Hovering like helicopters so they can watch us long enough to come up with a plot to stop us. Don't even get me started on these cops and all the drama Oscar Grant to Eric Garner Partner that pistols not a permanent marker got my hands up but I can't breathe in this smog, ugh. Frustrated for the folks falling victim to a fallen system, this friction is flinching. Tension is wrenching the heart of my mission hearts and minds missing, good morning mourning. Hook: Elias Good morning mourning (good morning mourning) My eyes are crying Oh Lord, no, the horror got to cry for your sons and daughters I reach my hand in the muddy waters Good morning mourning, yeah Verse 2: MotionPlus I dream big, wipe the cold out my eye colder than this world that we live in, why? Time slips by, why live with regrets? I still fear death but deaths not denied by no man, just a cross and a promise but no man on this earth lives honest Honestly I cry weekly for my grandmother she been gone since '89, that's a long number But the love I remembers unconditional and more than one time I thought to let the pistol pull Self inflict, get me there where the love is hidden and suicidal tendencies are the ones forbidden It's a bidding war, labels own my soul, no it's a hidden war, stable and control, no My emotions are at def-con warning arise with the Son singing good morning mourning Hook: Elias Good morning mourning (good morning mourning) My eyes are crying Oh Lord, no, the horror got to cry for your sons and daughters I reach my hand in the muddy waters Good morning mourning, yeah Verse 3: JustMe Morning mourning. I started yawning and then performing my Daily Operation The life of a grown-up. I think I'll have a Donut and consider that my little escape from responsibility. The cost of villainy. Capital Punishment is what we all face son. A mixture of scripture, but it's hard to see The Big Picture through the Ill Communication Written and broadcasted, posted bombastic on every channel, station and website But I still got an Urge For Conscious Words, so Eazy-Duz-It I'll be searching the night For a Life After Death. Take my massive breath. All Eyez On Me when I'm grabbing a mic Open every single lock trying to be the King Of Rock end of the day that's a Rapper's Delight Bridge: Elias Mother Nature cries because of us Father Creator cries for all of us We don't own the truth at all we just seek a higher call Want a higher love but we're living in the fall Hook: Elias Good morning mourning (good morning mourning) My eyes are crying Oh Lord, no, the horror got to cry for your sons and daughters I reach my hand in the muddy waters Good morning mourning, yeah

The Burning 04:05
Intro: Wonder Brown The Guide that lights my way starts in the dusk of day and dreams when the rugged play The guide that lights my way... Verse 1: Elias Up in the morning before the sun rises just one of my many sacrifices. The freeway hums in the background Two choices, stand up or back down I got my cross in the corner it's heavy and hard to shoulder Like Sisyphus I feel like I'm pushing a boulder And I get tired, my light gets dim and it's more about me, and less about Him And I'm trying to figure out how I can begin 'Cause I don't really see the start, I'm seeing the end. I get lost in my dreams and plans for the future so if you need me God, go ahead just use me I'm up in the morning before the sun rises just one of my many sacrifices and the freeway hums in the background Hook (x2): Mouf Warren & EF Cuttin Wake up in the morning got the yearning for the burning believe what you heard 'cause you know that I wrote this for the hungry and under underprivileged we just open our mouth and let these words paint the pictures Verse 2: Wonder Brown The battle lies within as I'm crying again sign, sealed, delivered what's inside, what I send Sin being the symptom of a sign to my end bringing it back to reside in the wind No I can't be phased or even fathom of a life that isn't action packed when the fact remains that pain's a track record still spinning in the back drop of my still frame Thankful of the cold air that chills and until pain constricts the lungs and equips what's stunned to project the smoke that slopes from this wishful tongue that spits the dew from those with a choice to choose and a voice to use that submits to the noise of silence when it's poised to prove that what's to come starts in the lungs churned from the same vein that imparts what's been done the power of Christ compels to move this man pouring this song with the depths of my breath from the morning until dawn Hook (x2): Mouf Warren & EF Cuttin Wake up in the morning got the yearning for the burning believe what you heard 'cause you know that I wrote this for the hungry and under underprivileged we just open our mouth and let these words paint the pictures Verse 3: Cas Metah For more than half of my life I've had this passion to write raps the average cats didn't like Kind of like The Passion of Christ, the vocab was foreign to them or maybe their blood diamonds were more important to them Either way I knew I'd need to escape and seek a place where people relate to heathens with faith 'Cause my legs don't move with the body like the River Dance I'm alone and misunderstood, I'm Edward Scissorhands This is a man's world, this ain't a children's tale that's why after one dark night a lot of Christian's bail A lot of missions fail But I don't let the thought process get me down I spit this hail through the clouds every sunrise I ride shotgun 'til sunset and run miles with one breath Come test the one next to none and while you doing what they done did, I'll do what ain't been done yet Hook (x2): Mouf Warren & EF Cuttin Wake up in the morning got the yearning for the burning believe what you heard 'cause you know that I wrote this for the hungry and under underprivileged we just open our mouth and let these words paint the pictures Outro (x2): Wonder Brown The guide that lights my way starts in the dusk of day and dreams when the rugged play

Hey U 03:29
Verse 1: Cas Metah You're like a walker from The Walking Dead I'm like Walker Texas Ranger with a gauge to your head 'cause I don't congregate with awkward weight I save the rest of y'all a plate and I just play the chef (yeah I just play the chef) Not like Raekwon, more like Ray Charles 'cause I still can't see what's cooking in the graveyards But I heard they cooking meth in they cars We label it chaos, they call it a day job These are the dog days, it's hard to praise God it's dark in these hallways, no sight of The Day Star No hope where they are, faith lay far away not even angels hear the cries these walls make Not even made to fear these ties these laws break the governments a gimmick, need redemption like Shawshank I play "Redemption" by Bob Marley with one eye on the enemy always Hook: Mouf Warren Hey you, we're looking in your eyes is anybody there, because to our surprise No one's home the majority of the time that's why so many of us don't understand you Hey you, we're looking in your eyes is anybody there, because to our surprise No one's home the majority of the time that's why I've asked God for the patience to understand you Verse 2: Mouf Warren A lot of people equals power You get the population to believe a certain way but only the strong will survive the propaganda And those few lonely souls are out numbered the moment they don’t want to dumb down and compromise what they feel in they heart is righteous There's a conflict of interest, you're honestly tripping if you thought the separation of church and state was the end of the friendship In fact it got tighter like Peter Popoff's ear piece We see them report the fake news and I'm not talking TMZ It's all love when you living that life in this American nightmare tucking a pistol under the pillow at night just in case you need to defend Fear itself will keep you from living free and expanding your awareness Do you take the time to read between the lines? and see we've all been deceived and nobody can stop the crime We got members of congress that are caught up in the hype What am I feeling like? It's the Night of the Living Life Hook: Mouf Warren Hey U, we're looking in your eyes is anybody there, because to our surprise No one's home the majority of the time that's why so many of us don't understand you Hey U, we're looking in your eyes is anybody there, because to our surprise No one's home the majority of the time that's why I've asked God for the patience to understand you Verse 3: MotionPlus I hear the death dealers knocking, quit sobbing wipe your tears up if we ban together we can all make them fear us Congress and the Senate and the flunkies in the White House Illuminati puppet strings vanish with the white out Witch craft dabblers, pentagram and power moves Pentagon picture frames missing like the towers two Nine-eleven, twelve years, three six five sixty seconds in a minute, deep six lives See them shootings in Aurora and the schoolhouse you know the plot to keep it quiet like the school mouse They want them tools out, so we can't protect our flesh they'd rather have us mixed up like we're metro sex But I'm intelligent, my feelings are irrelevant the killings in Chicago get little press of telling it Chiraq DrIllinois, living in a war zone but every where's a battlefield when lies are poured on

Distracted 04:52
Verse 1: JustMe How does it happen? That we don't know how to hunt and gather But I know every lyric uttered by Marshall Mathers When was the last time that we discussed family matters Instead of watching an episode of Family Matters? We got a drunken uncle dressing in a high hat Kicking us into snares while we stare at iPads The war rages on and we don't bat an eyelash Rachel Ray is on, and I think Ellen is on next The zombie apocalypse ends with the dawning of consciousness Look at the broken promises. I guess that's honest politics We don't see what wrong with this. Watching something blonde with tits We just want to rhyme and shit, rocking all the bombest fits Are we not entertained? 'Cause we're not in tune with our neighbors pain Are we not in the drain? Are we to busy going up in flames? I can't tell any more. Maybe we're all insane Are we in Hell anymore, or is it just a game? Chorus: Wonder Brown Distracted I’m just a marionette on my cable Distracted If it’s for money, I’m willing and able Distracted Taking for granted I’m taken for granted Distracted If not distracted then I’m a distraction Verse 2: Wonder Brown It happens whenever I click and I drag spit and I hack up everything that I’ve taken the time to listen for that except I’d never envisioned I’d lack (Power) the will to kill our time on something to fill our lives Told to Apple-S on my mind, the man of Silicon on his grind until I opened this Bible, concerned all this sermon’s revival then reminded why it died condensing marathons to miles Lord give me a passion to create that which can’t break if my bandwidth someday goes makeshift becoming tampered and tainted Internet porn, babies for sale, political ads branded and bagged giving me more that never fails to promise me something that I lack Settle the score, save me from Sheol, escape to a fad that only distracts me from the man that I’m supposed to be as if you’re not close to me Who knew that when I was virgin she would take my soul? Who knew that when I went to Church they lied to take control? Who knew that when I had a child she’d take all that I have? Who knew that I would point and click everything that I had? Chorus: Wonder Brown Distracted I’m just a marionette on my cable Distracted If it’s for money, I’m willing and able Distracted Taking for granted I’m taken for granted Distracted If not distracted then I’m a distraction Verse 3: Mouf Warren It's like the money ain't enough and now people got to die according to their evil deeds, slow or fast, you decide So every dollar they dispense when one decides to buy something nice can't be weighed without the thought of getting high out they freaking mind Addiction is a bitch son, see I should know that Money holder, bill folder, no emotional greedy bastard But if it feeds the mouths we got at home then so be it All the while souls you poisoned are ODing where you don’t see them How could I not be distracted? Look at what I attracted Am I the same soul I was when I was a boy? God I'm asking 'Cause time is steady passing and I don’t think I've grasped yet just how lost we are without you through all this madness I got family strung out on Oxycontin and crack but the fact that she's horny and wants me bad got me forgetting fast It's like who was I supposed to call? What was I supposed to do again? I was supposed to...wait a minute...wait...hold up...hold up... Chorus: Wonder Brown Distracted I’m just a marionette on my cable Distracted If it’s for money, I’m willing and able Distracted Taking for granted I’m taken for granted Distracted If not distracted then I’m a distraction Outro: Wonder Brown Everywhere else I’m severed from self Kept on the shelf and tethered from hell Weather the storm and left for dead But I better forget if I’m led to forget my distraction

Verse 1: Cas Metah It's never good enough just when I thought I hit a homerun you telling me "that's a rookie bunt" And hun you should be blunt, but come on just 'cause I'm made in God's image, doesn't mean I'm cookie cut Understand I'm not a Wonder Man I'm doing what I can to make this love enhance breath by breath, brick by brick step by step, inch by inch I'm climbing, but it's a process surviving the trials of the jungle among the tigers and lions I don't need to be fighting with my rib too or paying your bills when my rents due I give you the benefit ten times out of ten ain't never hit you, and I never will All I'm asking is let's get past the fits back to when my passion over ruled my accidents Hook (x2): Why are you right when I'm so wrong? Everything you do is just alright Verse 2: MotionPlus There's nothing I can do to seem to ever measurement up inch away from the goal but that ref measures us Left to us, left us, right away the wrong direction you treat me like diseases and we never use protection I try really hard but that pump you got is rock and that blood that flows through it got to be more then some clots I love you very deep, twenty thousand leagues or knots however you want to measure, I'm drowning until it stops Every night we seem to fight and you hit me with the stunner what a bummer, you're stone cold and it's still in the summer I'm "Mister Lover Lover" but my Shaba never Ranks I'm Mister Mother Sucker 'til that money's in the bank Spend it 'til I'm spent, used up and out of luck out of time, vision blurry like some purple in a cup Lean against the wall reminisce about trust we in the same room with no room between us, man Hook (x2): Why are you right when I'm so wrong? Everything you do is just alright Verse 3: JustMe What happened to us? I don't even know All I know is I can't seem to do anything right anymore... To be right just once would be heavenly I ask the wrong questions, losing at Jeopardy Choosing that weaponry and using it against me got me second guessing, confusing me, separately I know that we are very happy, we rarely scrappy but why do you prefer to cap me instead of dap me? How many times I disappoint you in the last year? I could never turn it right like nascar Fighting past dark for the future so bright when we had nothing left everything was alright Praying all night and penning this song but it's hard to even write when everything is so wrong Hook (x2): Why are you right when I'm so wrong? Everything you do is just alright Verse 4: Mouf Warren Some days he feels like he shows and proves for nothing Every time he does right she feels like he's trying to do something 'Cause every taken step is held suspect when he uses his cell or logs into the internet They say jealousy's an ugly trait still he longs all day to see her pretty face She always says "you have a way with words" and every girl that answers his calls at work says his voice is superb Kind of gets on her nerves but deep down inside she knows she gets what she deserves Doing anything he can just so that she wont hurt To no avail it seems, got's him feeling like a jerk it's like love is not enough in this relationship Love now feels like a curse when at first it was a gift But with a love so strong whether wrong or right both couldn’t walk away even if they tried Hook (x2): Why are you right when I'm so wrong? Everything you do is just alright And I can't walk away from you if I tried

Verse 1: JustMe God even as the cries crawl out my mouth parts of my mind die and fill with doubt I want to shout but I can't muster up the shriek I know that you are real and listening, I mean I think I been weak for weeks forget the by the by dancing cheek to cheek but we can't see eye to eye Both a freak and geek so I will try and try but I'm not too meek to speak so when I spy a lie I rhyme with the passion of the minor prophets that saw the injustices and told Israel "stop it" We have made a mess I think it's time to mop it but when the album pressed man nobody'll cop it Not to shop it, but I think we need a demo so we can see beyond the walls to the peak and meadow But what do I know? man I'm just a wetto that can't get off his hands and knees to tell the Lord hello Hook (x2): Elias I crawled 'cause I couldn't walk today everybody knows that you're supposed to pray But I can't think of any words to say when this cold going to melt away? Verse 2: Mouf Warren Must've been one of them days we woke up on the wrong side or maybe it's 'cause I loath myself and won't die God knows I've tried and also that I've lied I've apologized so many times, in hindsight I cry I place myself out in the open so I can't hide wishing you didn’t notice these flaws in my life The hate I harbor is hopeless by a land slide and frozen over is my heart and dark inside Was it nature or nurture that made me use curse words like a second language? I'm not certain Frustrated with the way things have worked out I feel burnt out and weak and so out of focus Today I stopped myself to think about the last time I prayed to God and made the call 'cause I had no problems at all I couldn’t so I knelt bedside hands folded I drew a blank and couldn’t muster up the words to even quote this Hook (x2): Elias I crawled 'cause I couldn't walk today everybody knows that you're supposed to pray But I can't think of any words to say when this cold going to melt away? Verse 3: Reflex Standing here with a sheepish grin Got an audience with God, but can't bring myself to speak to Him And if I could speak to anyone, it should be God I should be offering prayers like I'm Goodie Mob Trying to touch what I never touched before See what I never seen before, but I woke to see the clouds And thought somebody rewrote the script Supposed to see the sun, what type of a joke is this? But maybe God's bored of waiting for me To move past all my flaws and shady deceit All my striving, trying hard to change my ways So I can earn grace that I couldn't earn in the first place But to overstretch the metaphor I've been knocking on Heaven's door, till knuckles are red and raw And my words dry up when I'm baring my soul 'cause I'm not sure if I'm still on hold...can you hear me Lord? Hook (x2): Elias I crawled 'cause I couldn't walk today everybody knows that you're supposed to pray But I can't think of any words to say when this cold going to melt away?

Enable Her 03:51
Verse 1: MotionPlus She wasn't born with a silver spoon, but she made it work million dollar smile, but two times the hurt Double down on the love search, love hurt had to search low to the ground in the mud first She was so depressed, felt so alone she had a man, had his heart, but her heart is cold Hard to know if it was realer than the ones before hard to see the path ahead when there's another door Open and close, in and out, a lot of soul ties a lot of passion and lies twisted like bowties He would tell her you're the apple of my eye she would tell him in a minute that an apple don't cry And the tears are still streaming, dealing with these demons dealing with abuse, boiling over still steaming Holding on to hope, but never to its meaning now she's giving up on this world and she's leaving Chorus: Elias She was the same old girl that I always knew So full of life and love until she lost all of that too He was the same old boy didn’t know what to do She was slipping away and his dreams were far too few Verse 2: Wonder Brown He grew up on the unsuitable side of fitting the truest armor ”So what you guard your heart for?” Some say it’s darkness a godless plan for never paying the homage so you could trust he’d never say it honest The heart on his sleeve read “a tainted promise” One-after-the-other victim in the grayest bondage So you could say he painted in fifty shades a beautiful deception hidden in uplifting ways A bitter stain of a family curse but it runs in his veins to put his vanity first so in no time guess who’s sanity’s worst? He’s got her looking everywhere for an answer reversed and takes a deep breath, checks his reflection then quickly turns his back to that scary direction that same old story that never confesses He buries her grin in the callous that cost her affections Chorus: Elias She was the same old girl that I always knew So full of life and love until she lost all of that too He was the same old boy didn’t know what to do She was slipping away and his dreams were far too few Verse 3: Elias They found a body in the park about 1 am And his mind went back to the first time he ever saw her give him that cute grin. They were 9 years old but the world grew cold and their paths just grew apart. But the thing that stuck with him most of all was the grin that still had his heart. She used to laugh and play now she’s a runaway. And Sally got a one track mind Hitting the pipe most all of the time. As she lay in the middle of the cold, dark park He felt himself sink within. But the thing that stuck with him most of all was the grin that still had his heart Chorus: Elias She was the same old girl that I always knew So full of life and love until she lost all of that too He was the same old boy didn’t know what to do She was slipping away and his dreams were far too few

Verse 1: Ruffian Dive off the face of earth and plunge into The Son sleep on the moon and have a dream of where I'm from Babies losing babies, leaders turning shady life's a maybe, night cravings slowly changing men to animals Lack of love got them transforming into cannibals that's why they facial features crazy I done seen the dead walk, ain't too much amaze me God be the antidote but they would rather be sick be rich, die trying to be what he is dope flowing slowly through they veins into the fetus Mama's at thirteen ain't even had a chance to be kids Restless can't sleep 'cause they was laying where the beast lives daddy drunk and high so we get beat for no reason Faithless, scared to let their knees bend What in hell do you believe in? What's in Hell to believe in? Hook (x2): Elias What do you believe in? I can feel you reaching I can feel disease it's moving like an ether Inhale open veins now I'm bleeding Verse 2: Cas Metah This is reality where I live, no word of it fiction no chicken in the fridge but they got birds in the kitchen Addicts itching for the fix 'cause the verdicts been rendered serving a life sentence ever since the turn of this century Hustlers turned to junkies the ones that used to get bundles are struggling to re-up 'cause they get high on they rent money I used to ride with a dime, yeah, a fine thick honey now she always sick, can't keep nothing in her thin stomach I can pray but I can't save them it's a painful situation daily see your peoples digging they own graves with one of the greatest killers since Hitler, and it ain't racist but the streets named it "boy" 'cause it's a form of modern enslavement Heroin, very few will escape it many will snort, many will bang it therefore there's many more that will lay dead chest caved in and veins drained red comatose from an overdose on and on it goes, on and on it goes, on and on it goes Hook (x2): Elias What do you believe in? I can feel you reaching I can feel disease it's moving like an ether Inhale open veins now I'm bleeding

Dog Days 03:44
Verse 1: Cas Metah We all walking by grace, right? So why you up in my face like you ain't seen grey skies? What? It's always sunny? Always lovely? Where you living at buddy? In what country? 'Cause where I'm from is dumb humid in the summer seasons change and they ain't like when you were younger Global warming made this skin a little tougher a little hungry, 'cause all I had was peanut butter Brother I don't think you know what it means to feel the struggle just got to call your mama for money when you in trouble But I'm not from the 'burbs, I'm from the gutter where the silver spoon's rusted, so it's a must to hustle No I'm not done yet, yet it is finished Heaven conquered Hell, so I'm pale with no blemish To some it isn't enough, that have to have limits they have to add gimmicks to act Christian Then ask if I'm walking close to the fire I been close to the fire most of my life Born 8-1, born again 9-5 'til I die living in these dog days and times Chorus: Wonder Brown Take a step and make it known Just know (just know) What you perceive isn’t always how it plays out Take a breath, but take your own Oh no (oh no) If we live amongst the beast, then these are the dog days now Verse 2: JustMe News flash homie! I don't know it all But if our crews clash crony, you're the one to fall 'Cause I ain't never been big on quittin' I believe in fighting, writing, scratching, spittin' Whatever it takes to reveal the hidden A lot of mistakes made, we'll admit them Claiming G.O.A.T.? Man, you must be kiddin' We K-9s obey lines like "speak" and "sit-in" But never roll over or play dead to make bread We've been called "Rover" but pray heads will stay fed When it's all over we pained, bled, and gained friends From Cliffs of Dover to Bankhead We keep ranting and raving over the breaks Panting and paving, knowing the stakes Having the heart to see what we say 'Til God gets his way and every dog has it's day Chorus: Wonder Brown Take a step and make it known Just know (just know) What you perceive isn’t always how it plays out Take a breath, but take your own Oh no (oh no) If we live amongst the beast, then these are the dog days now Verse 3: Reflex Stand by for tips from bystanders Who stand biased if we don't buy their standards Won't stand by us 'cause they don't like our chances Yet from sidelines, they're firing right answers Oh, I shouldn't be so prideful? You've got a better grasp on my dreams than I do? Well let go, Gepetto, you're grasping too hard You're cue-card flashing when I'm reading off a different script Full of pain and plot twists But if I stay in my lane I've got this When armchair critics giving taxi guidance Jesus, take the wheel, rescue me from backseat drivers, good Lord! Chorus: Wonder Brown Take a step and make it known Just know (just know) What you perceive isn’t always how it plays out Take a breath, but take your own Oh no (oh no) If we live amongst the beast, then these are the dog days now

Chorus: Ruffian As The Predator deceives them The Editor with better words feeds them Left for dead bleeding We devour the remains This is a battle of complete men We are complete, we are completement Verse 1: Ruffian How come it take energy to hate the bait and a dinner on a plate of enemies we break legs of social tape just to add some common sense but in the end it's total fate cold and blank drew a conscious frozen lake until it cracked then we reach for faith trying to sell and fleece the state above the net but then it seem to fade with no respect I call them slaves, they fit the trend I'm complete and can't contend When can we escape this road to fame and sin Verse 2: Mouf Warren I don’t know if an end exists man even long after we pass 'cause after all your soul enters into a different dimension when you decided to take this path that’s all So here we are in heavenly realms in a plush studio up in Beverly Hills surrounded by white money like Tony Montana except everything around me is more realer that real And I know I'm never going to fade guaranteed to be back another day Look death in his eyes and fight Why? 'Cause no one else out in this world is going to come rescue and save me Grown man on my own two, doing my own thing I thought I told you It’s a rare thing to know me, I complete the cypher now let we remind you Verse 3: Wonder Brown Let me lace up my Adidas God help this odd walk, wobbling, lost coddling the cost of what this would cause as the clock ticks down my abysmal pause What am I waiting for? Two steps forward is how I should paint the floor instead I taint my tour to make sure I get a grip on a faith secure to plot my steps how I got my breath take it in to give it back, all that I have left taking what was given as an opposite tempo to the time I’ve wasted trying to watch my step So I got them asking how I’ll improve devour the flower you push up to prove Who’s out with the old and in with the new choosing to keep it moving as the only true move that I’m doing Verse 4: MotionPlus Yo, True to that, I'm 7-3-0 without the uz or macs with the crews intact, you could lose a back, those fools, no rules, they choose attacks I'm ready to get it my heart is on fire, the flame is still burning the burning desire we live and we learn and we learn to admire, the wisdom we share is the church of Messiah Ahh, take a breath, my souls on the map when I'm taking steps what I'm taking next, when I'm raising techs, the faith about the size of a raisinet Amazing yet, it's hard to do, past in the past but it harbors you ship in the sea, past the harbor too,we need to cut it off like a barber do, my my Cuts: EF Cuttin Going in your third eye for the styles you hear Verse 5: Theory Hazit It's like we clinging on to this world so tight should have been called Klingons we over look the enterprise trying to get our thing on Value jobs over love and security careers in jeopardy, we neglect honesty Panic like it's frantic and we don't want to lose but it paralyzes us from walking in them shoes We put up walls and save and keep God but that shit remind us how safe we really are We really are insecure looking for love in the wrong places, the world is screwed up like a Texas mixtape, we worry and fixate trying to fix things, making all kind of mistakes Take a risk, at this rate we lie and dictate and feel like why we got to find out this way, huh? Christ lost everything that we scared to lose just so He could be close to you now we complete Verse 6: JustMe It just wouldn't be complete without JustMe getting on breathing heat you want beef then I can keep feeding meat but you looking like you sucking on a heathen tit Please believe me that as a collector I got to have it all, bring it back selector You want to have a ball, still be effective shed light on a wall, over head projector Truth written on it, dudes hitting on it proof coming out the booth and spitting on it Moving is moving so no sitting on it cruising for bruising without getting on it Join the gang, enjoy the pain it ain't no point to avoid the rain You can hide your coin where it spoils in vein or invest in the best, go against the grain Verse 7: Griffin Hello Griff again, finna bend, rules with a list of friends I'm like Scarface up in a war, cause I be dumping them off you tripping if you thinking it's pretend Say hello to my little friend, Christ died now he live again Hung through it 'til the bitter end and still it be the message even if it isn't making any dividends, we forgiven and moving on to a higher place, us folk call it Christ-side tougher than Lugz, I'm covered in Blood, and you be stuck in a rut, you better chillin up on my side Now that's truth for the youth, and it's a dues for the team too cruel for the scene, how it is when the melody hit got any credit to give, don't even pay it to me cause it's due to the King Verse 8: Cas Metah Soon you will see just how gruesomely this crew can feast/ It's kind of like the Hunger Games how I'm hunting kids down to drown my hunger pains/ Wells of living water nourish the thirst, so I hang above the rain/ when I sense a drought, I hit the ground and pinch a cloud 'til the pitcher's mound encouraged to curse/ Now that's what I call a spit ball/ when God completes the jig saw/ that's when the puzzle gets solved/ Got to get the map back 'cause we been lost/ Been off track but going to get back on, stand tall with our back strong/ even if we may get black balled, in the dog days expect cat calls/ Verse 9: Elias Cat calls Clap when the gat call Pitfalls Yelling at the pit boss come back for the rent loss One time coming in for the hip toss Slap that, block that, slipped off You really going to be the one ripped off Thinking that the system going to be the lift off Hands up now! Get pissed off! We we we living in Babylon and our Lord is gone and justice is gone (come Zion) 2x Verse 10: Reflex Well if it's gone, then what do we have left And what do we wait for, what do we grab next To fill this void, and live on past death Or feel real joy in every aspect? Whenever we ask that, how fast does it turn awkward? Forced to divorce thought to move forward So we do it for the income...sweet But how come the income is imcomplete? We need more to pay for the mask Cover up scars with a cape to the back Insane how we're still chained to the past But then hide the chains and claim we're the Master Have to break the spell Take off the mask and cape as well You compete with complete? You take the L So think you better go brace yourself...Ruff tell 'em Chorus: Ruffian As The Predator deceives them The Editor with better words feeds them Left for dead bleeding We devour the remains This is a battle of complete men We are complete, we are completement

Verse 1: Elias Oh Lord What am I? What am I supposed to do? Why do I always feel like I have to prove? Well, I grew up in the gutter, both feet in the mud and grime. Stank of the sewer and the failure that followed me all the time. Well, my daddy walked the wrong path, and I knew I had to choose. Momma overwhelmed with all these things she had to do. Oh Lord you know it’s hard when your childhoods not spent on you. And you trying to being a man before you even understand. Chorus 2x: Elias and Jordan Santana Oooh child. You don’t walk alone (you don't walk alone) Just give him your burden he gonna carry that heavy load (carry that heavy load) Verse 2: Cas Metah You've had a lot of weight on your plate growing up in the slums, the village of snakes makes it easy to see the reason you stayed away from the streets and the games that the players play You felt the pain and the bruise on your mothers eye felt the sting of the needle when your brother died Ain't no wonder why you feel like God is just another lie when you lost everything you've ever loved in life You're not alone though You got to hold on and roll with the stones throw Hold on bro We all been there, we all bear losses but only one was ever born to bear crosses He is The Father to the fatherless inviting you to walk in the land of His promises and all you got to do is walk with Him not run, not crawl, just walk with Him (walk with Him) Chorus 2x: Elias and Jordan Santana Oooh child. You don’t walk alone (you don't walk alone) Just give him your burden he gonna carry that heavy load (Carry that heavy load) Verse 3: Jordan Santana Nobody carried my burden before and I don't know just how I'm supposed to not feel alone I been walking this road all on my own So tell me, why am I so special that The Sculptor would care for such a vessel? Broken, but maybe that's what leaves me open for somebody to pour a little hope in Chorus 2x: Elias and Jordan Santana Oooh child. You don’t walk alone (you don't walk alone) Just give him your burden he gonna carry that heavy load (Carry that heavy load)

Verse 1: Cas Metah We came in with gauntlets, made them into omelets stained in my optics are the pains of progress. I know it take losses to make profits but when nations facing conquered they playing Contra. If you play with contraband pray you ain't a pauper population top guns got Wall Street stocked up. Hovering like helicopters so they can watch us long enough to come up with a plot to stop us. Don't even get me started on these cops and all the drama Oscar Grant to Eric Garner Partner that pistols not a permanent marker got my hands up but I can't breathe in this smog, ugh. Frustrated for the folks falling victim to a fallen system, this friction is flinching. Tension is wrenching the heart of my mission hearts and minds missing, good morning mourning. Hook: Elias Good morning mourning (good morning mourning) My eyes are crying Oh Lord, no, the horror got to cry for your sons and daughters I reach my hand in the muddy waters Good morning mourning, yeah Verse 2: MotionPlus I dream big, wipe the cold out my eye colder than this world that we live in, why? Time slips by, why live with regrets? I still fear death but deaths not denied by no man, just a cross and a promise but no man on this earth lives honest Honestly I cry weekly for my grandmother she been gone since '89, that's a long number But the love I remembers unconditional and more than one time I thought to let the pistol pull Self inflict, get me there where the love is hidden and suicidal tendencies are the ones forbidden It's a bidding war, labels own my soul, no it's a hidden war, stable and control, no My emotions are at def-con warning arise with the Son singing good morning mourning Hook: Elias Good morning mourning (good morning mourning) My eyes are crying Oh Lord, no, the horror got to cry for your sons and daughters I reach my hand in the muddy waters Good morning mourning, yeah Verse 3: JustMe Morning mourning. I started yawning and then performing my Daily Operation The life of a grown-up. I think I'll have a Donut and consider that my little escape from responsibility. The cost of villainy. Capital Punishment is what we all face son. A mixture of scripture, but it's hard to see The Big Picture through the Ill Communication Written and broadcasted, posted bombastic on every channel, station and website But I still got an Urge For Conscious Words, so Eazy-Duz-It I'll be searching the night For a Life After Death. Take my massive breath. All Eyez On Me when I'm grabbing a mic Open every single lock trying to be the King Of Rock end of the day that's a Rapper's Delight Bridge: Elias Mother Nature cries because of us Father Creator cries for all of us We don't own the truth at all we just seek a higher call Want a higher love but we're living in the fall Hook: Elias Good morning mourning (good morning mourning) My eyes are crying Oh Lord, no, the horror got to cry for your sons and daughters I reach my hand in the muddy waters Good morning mourning, yeah
