Track Name: My Surprise
My surprise, my surprise
Fiber burns and bad advice
But I'm alive, I'm alive
I'm afraid and I'm a fool
I will always be your ghoul
Touché, I've been weighed

It wants everything, everything
I swore

It wants everything, everything
I swore

Die tonight, die tonight
Blessed be the ties that bind
But I'm alive, I'm alive
I'm a slob and I'm a flake
Trading heartache for heart pain
Touché, I've been weighed

It wants everything, everything
I swore

It wants everything, everything
I swore

I feel like everything’s alright
I snapped but baby I'm just fine
My feet will finally hit the floor
Left over by the leftovers from what fed me before

My head turned and there's no way back
My name is shame hitting me with the LBS
Just when I thought I was losing that
It's cool, I'm intact
Swing for the fences 'cause I'm cool like that
Can't move right back
Dark comedy but who writes that?
Man I faced down a bitter evil
Pride implies a Desert Eagle
But there's no sequel, there's no sequel
I knew the truth before I burned my neck
The proof is knots crowded 'round my head
At crossroads I chose the cross instead
Or it chose me, else I'd be dead
I grasped at death as if it was glory
A final swing for my attention whoring
'Cause I'm so boring
I wanted you to notice
I didn't mean it, I was posing
God meant it, I couldn't do it
But it snapped, yeah I blew it
These days everybody hurts
Everybody wants to talk about the passion
I'm second guessing
All the shiny, happy people that will scatter my ashes
Used to have all the right friends
I took your name like you took mine then
And I won't be losing my religion again
Someone has to pay even though Stipe ends
Paralyzed though my whole state is REM

One thought crept back
Two shots step back
Three crosses I accept that
For myself I correct that
Five times with no hint
Down to my sixth sense
Seven times seventy I repent
Hate my sin but do you forgiven
Nine went on but one was grateful
Ten couldn’t take it but two were faithful
Unleavened bread was my surprise
Grafted into the twelfth tribe

One thought crept back
Two shots step back
Three crosses I accept that
For myself I correct that
Five times with no hint

Seven times seventy I repent
Hate my sin but do you forgiven
Nine went on but one was grateful
Ten couldn’t take it but two were faithful
Unleavened bread was my surprise
Grafted into the twelfth tribe
Track Name: Still Dead
It’s no lie
When you pulled out the nine
I had more reason to shoot
Than you had to survive
Pulled out the wallet
There was nothing to bribe
Still more reason to shoot/
Than you had to stay alive
And I'm still dead

If my struggles taught me I was not to run
If my feelings taught me it was all for blood
These feelings are so bad
This scheming cost me my kingdom come
This trouble brought me a love, once
These feelings are so bad
Your feelings are so bad

It’s no lie
When you pulled out the nine
I had more reason to shoot
Than you had to survive
Pulled out the wallet
There was nothing to bribe
Still more reason to shoot
Than you had to stay alive
And I'm still dead

My family wished me a pulpit soon
They'd have shouted if they knew
My feelings are so bad
Prophet swore we'd fulfill it soon
But I was late that, that afternoon
These feelings are so bad
Your feelings are so bad

It’s no lie
When you pulled out the nine
I had more reason to shoot
Than you had to survive
Pulled out the wallet
There was nothing to bribe
Still more reason to shoot
Than you had to stay alive
And I'm still dead

Still dead (BEEN DEAD)
Still dead (BEEN DEAD)
Still dead (BEEN DEAD)
Still dead (BEEN DEAD)
Still dead (BEEN DEAD)
Still dead (BEEN DEAD)
Still dead (BEEN DEAD)
Still dead (BEEN DEAD)

In the rehearsed verses the purpose is to trap behind bars
On the surface it’s worthless, but this is art
I break bad like Aaron Paul
Spray the can like an aerosol
It’s an air assault, I’m airing the error ’til you throw shade like a parasol
It’s apparent ya’ll, this gift was underneath my skin
But made for the pulpit, a fool’s gift
Like I pull triggers, as if
I’m with bars, a barbarian
Bring the pallbearers in
Long nose goes in the body like carrion
Straight edge like a cesarean
Arrogant but prove relevant
Pop and spray like an elephant
These words are fire
This token smoking like weed in Boulder
I’m Urkel, a nerd with glasses blasting from two straps over his shoulders
The journey to become authentic
Said it before but I never meant it
White man in a black mask, suburban rap with another gimmick
Who am I? Am I street enough for these white guys
I’m a black one
I’m a black son
Can I be more than black once?

It’s no lie
When you pulled out the nine
I had more reason to shoot
Than you had to survive
Pulled out the wallet
There was nothing to bribe
Still more reason to shoot
Than you had to stay alive
And I'm still dead
