about

Dirt's second Project. This album received rave reviews (check the iTunes comments alone) for it's powerful emotional authority set in a hiphop landscape. Dirt was seen as obviously grown and maturing in Rap's game, refusing to stay the same or settle for a repeat of the first.

Don't get it twisted though. This doesn't mean you shouldn't expect the same stylized vocal presence that is unique to Dirt. On this album you get the same rough, underground flow that smashes the mainstreams perception of music, and in addition, an emotional MC that dives into his own psyche to deliver some awesomely deep and moving songs.

The lyrical content is very sincere, revealing and heartfelt, laid over production to match. Famed guitarist/musician, Jesse Sprinkle, surprisingly shows up to add the engineering presence which sends the entire project into an exciting state that melds genres while staying true to Dirt's passion as a Hiphop purist.

Many artist feature on this album, of course, representing the 'Shadow of the locust' banner with the quality and credibility we've come to expect from the crew. At the same time, Dirt definately holds his own on this highly memorable project that should NOT be slept on.

Track Name: Harlot
HARLOT
Surrounded by shouts, the cruel accusations
dragged to the court, no hope of salvation
all hope was lost, becuase those who contain me
knew who I was, they caught me in my iniquities
I thought it seemed strange as we entered in
they're stopping a young Rabbi to ask his opinion
'Imma prostitute', that's why they hate me
my body can feel the stones that await me
my judge...a man from Galilee
yet in his eyes I can see
a Father, a Brother, and a Son
a Lamb, and a Lion
the crowd is gathering, so angry and violent
as he stood beside me, so peaceful and silent
then with one word and one question
He shows them
that they too are guilty, and cannot condemn
what does He write in the sand
this man
that's asking me 'were are they'
I open my eyes...and through tears, see a courtyard that's empty
the stones that were gonna taste my blood
had been dropped back onto the ground were they came from
........
and in this new light, I now understood
that He would not condenm me, even though He could.....
(end with echo)
Track Name: Blunted Edge
BLUNTED EDGE
DEADLY GENESIS, FEAR PARALYZE MY ACTIONS USELESS
SERPENTS LIGHT UP THE FURNACE
I TAKE STEPS WHERE EVIL THOUGHTS FLOURISH
AND BEAR WITNESS
TO DARK FORCES BENDING UP MY EDIFICE
I FOLLOW ANGELS TO THE BLACK ABYSS
AND THE CONSEQUENCES ARE DISATEROUS
‘I WILL ASCEND TO THE HEAVENS
AND ESTABLISH MY THRONE AT THE UTMOST HEIGHTS OF THE MOUNTAINS
AND MAKE MYSELF LIKE THE MOST HIGH’ (Isaiah 14:13,14)
A LIE RECORDED IN ISAIAH FOURTEEN, THAT I AMPLIFY
MY MAN CAME AND PROPHECIED
BUT MY HEART WAS SOLIDIFIED
I SIT AT TABLES WITH DEVILS FROM HELLS ALUMNI
N’ THEY SUGGESTIN SINS THAT I CAN’T EVEN CLASSIFY
DARK AND TWISTED
WHERE ONCE THESE THINGS GOT EVICTED
THEY NOW TAKE UP HOME AND RESIDE
MY SPINE FEELS THE PAIN OF A BACKSLIDE
PIERCED, STRIPPED, AND PISSED
AS PRIDE LEAVES MY 3rd EYE BLIND
POWER IS PERFECTED IN WEAKNESS (1st Cor. 15:43)
SO I ASK GOD TO HELP ME SEE THESE SPIRITS OF SICKNESS
AND AS THE LORD GAZES UPON MY LONLINESS
I SEE DEMONS ABOUT MY RADIUS
I’M PUNCHIN HOLES IN THE WALLS
MY KIDS ARE WATCHIN ME GO AWOL
WHILE MY WIFE HAS TO COVER THEM
DON’T WANT THEM TO SEE THE BAD EXAMPLE
OF A GODLY MAN ACTIN LIKE AND UNGODLY HEATHEN
TAKE EVERYTHING…

“THE DEVILS CURSE GOD
AND REVERSE GOD
AND TURN GOD TO DOG”

A RESIDUE OF GUILT, BUILT
THIS TWISTED TABERNACLE WHERE MY FLESHLY STATE MEDITATES
I BUILD DEFENSES HARDER THAN STEEL PLATE
AND CONCIET, WONT LET THE HOLY GHOST MEDICATE
I PULL BACK AND STEEL GODS THROWN
AND FEEL THE JUDGEMENTS STRAIGHT TO THE BONE
N’ SWINGIN PENDULUMS
STORIES ENDING
BUT I’M STILL COMPREHENDING
MY WAY THROUGH THESE 66 BOOKS AND COVENENANTS
A SUFFERING SERVANT, MY CUTTIN EDGE BLUNTED
A WRETCHED ADOLESCENCE
THEY’RE BEATIN ME SENSELESS
TELEGRAPH THE HEAVENS FOR THE S.O.S
BECAUSE THIS TYPE OF MESS IS DANGEROUS
AND THE BRICKS ARE HEAVY
THE WATER JUST BROKE UP THE LEVY
23 YEARS ON THIS LAND
AND ITS TAKEN THIS LONG TO UNDERSTAND
THAT HE TAKES ME AS I AM AND AS I AM NOT
MY MICROPHONE BURNED HOT
BUT MY SOULD FROZE COLD LIKE THE NORTH POLE
PICTURE THE HOOKED FISH, WITH THE DEVIL AT THE POLE
A WEAK INDIVIDUAL, WITH NO RISIDUAL
LEAVE ME ALONE BECAUSE I’M JUST NOT ABLE
I’M NOT AGILE
MY POWER IS FRAGILE
TOOK SOME FRUIT FROM A REPTILE
COMPLETE SUBMISSION, FATHER WILL ME YOUR DEMANDS
WEAKENED FLESH. GOD REFRESH THIS TORTURED HUMAN
TAKE EVERYTHING….

(beat stops, flips into outro beat, then ends on chorus)

GO AHEAD AND TAKE EVERYTHING, TAKE EVERYTHING I WANT YOU TO!
Track Name: Scripture
SCRIPTURE
CAUSE MY FINITE MIND CAN’T PENETRATE HIS INFINTY
LUCKILY HE TAKES THE INITIATIVE, TO REVEAL HIMSELF THROUGH NATURE, CREATION AND HISTORY
THROUGH EVENTS AND THE PROPHETS WHO INTERPRET THEM
BUT WHAT ABOUT US WHO WERE NOT PRESENT
THROUGHOUT HISTORY TO SEE GODS INVOLVEMENT
OR THE EVENTS SURROUND CHRISTS INCARNATION, LIFE, DEATH AND RESSURECTION
A WRITTEN RECORD WAS NEEDED
THUS THE HOLY SPIRIT INTERCEDED
BIBLICAL SCRIPTURE WAS WRITTEN
FROM GENESIS TO THE FACT OF ARMEGGEDON
THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS, THE GOSPLES
AND THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES
21 LETTERS CALLED EPISTLES
BOOKS OF POETRY AND WISOM
ENDING WITH REVELATION
GIVING BY INSPIRATION
TO MEN WHO WERE CARRIED ALONG BY THE HOLY SPIRIT (2nd Pet. 1:21)
AS IF HIS OWN HAND WROTE THE SCRIPT
THAT IS GOD BREATHED AND USEFUL FOR TEACHING AND REBUKING
CORRECTING AND TRAINING (2nd Timothy 3:16)
IN RIGHTEOUSNESS
TO KILL THE INIQUITOUSS
MIND STATE!
AND SEAL THE DEVILS FATE
SO SHALL WE MEDIATATE N’ PARTAKE
IN FELLOWSHIP
WITH GOD AND THE KNOWLEDGE THAT HE COME WITH
Track Name: Saving Private You (w/ 7Lock)
SAVING PRIVATE YOU
(7lock)
READY TRAINED LIKE GREEN BERET MERCINARY
FRONTLINE SOLDIER
I KNEW IT MEANT DEATH, SON, BUT I’M RUNNIN!
THEY CUAGHT ME IN THE CROSSFIRE
CANNINITES SETTIN OFF MY TRIPWIRE
I’M STEADY MARKED!
THERE BE NO TURNIN BACK NOW
I SEE THE SCARS ON MY HANDS
IT BRINGS ME FLASHBACKS
OF EVIL SNIPERS ZOOMIN IN ON ME
AT EVERY ANGLE
TAKIN OUT MY INFANTRY
THE LAND IN SHAMBLES
LEFT ME ALL ALONE TO DIE
HIT MY SWITCH, A BLOODY TRAIL OF REMOTE MINES
NOW HERES MY COMEBACK!:
HEAT SEEKIN DREADLOCKED SOLDIERS MAKE THEY WAY THROUGH THE SMOKE
AAAAHHHHH!…..IT AINT NO BLOOMIN JOKE!
WHAT THE TARNATION!?
HAPPENED TO YOUR NATION!?
RAISIN UP YOUR FLAGS AND BOWIN DOWN TO GOLDEN CALVES!?
SAVING YOU!

(Dirt)
SALVATION, MY FACE IN THE MUD
A DIRTY DRUG, INJECTED
I REMEMBER THE DAYS OF THE MAJESTIC
THEY BROKE UP MY ESTABLISHMENT
AND NOW THEY GOT ME HANGIN ON THE WALL, BENDING UP MY LIGAMENTS
I WATCH EM USE THE EARTHS ELEMENTS
N’ THE SEVEN MAJOR OCEANS
TO CUASE PANIC IN THE EARTHS INHABITANTS
MY MIND DWELLS ON THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
MARTIAL LAW HAS BEEN DECLARED BY THE PRESIDENT
MY IMAGE IS TARNISHED
A PILGRIM MAKIN NO PROGRESS
ROMANS 10:9 TOLD MY TONGUE TO CONFESS
BUT I’VE CHOSEN MY PRIDEFULNESS
I HANG OUT WITH ROACHES
AND I’M AFRAID OF EVERY SOUND THAT APPROACHES

EVIL COMMUNICATION
WHY’D THEY EAT THE APPLE AT CREATION
AN ABOMINATION
THEY GOT MY HONING SIGNAL AT THE STATION
BUT WILL THEY COME
EVERY MORNING THROUGH A CRACK I CAN SEE THE SUN

(7Lock)
PLANT EXPLOSIVES TO THE GROUND, SON
THE SEEDS ARE FERTILE
MEET ME BACK AT THE SECTORS AT THE CRACK OF DAWN
DON’T LOOK BACK, LEST YOU TURN TO WICKED STONE
KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE MARK, ACE, WE COMIN HOME!
MISSION COMPLETED
ROOTS OF EVIL HAVE BEEN DEFEATED
LOCUST REST UNDER THE H.E.A.T.
WE GATHER ALL THE SHEEP
AND IF WE LEAVE ONE BEHINID
WE STRAP IT ON FOR SOME MORE
AND TAKE IT TO THE HARDCORE
AND GET EM OUT!
SAVING YOU!
Track Name: Royal Rucus
ROYAL RUCKUS
RECOGNIZE MY GIFTS TO ACCOMPLISH MINISTRY
HOLD MY MIC EFFECTIVELY
DEMONS THAT MISDIRECT ME
WHEN I FIGURE IT OUT I TURN AROUND N' CHOP 'EM IN VISECTOMIES
MAKE CERTAIN OF VICTORIES
AND TO PREVENT INJURIES
I STRUCTURE MY FORCES ACCORDINGLY
TO SUPPLEMENT EXTRAORDINARY,
TACTICS
SPRING FORTH LIKE A MATTRESS
I MARRIED MANY STYLES LIKE A POLYGAMIST
BUT ONLY LOVE ONE WOMAN
AND WHEN I SING THE BATTLE HYMN OF THE UNION
I STOMP AN ARMY LIKE THE SMALL FORCE OF GIDEON
DO SOME WORK ON YOUR BRAIN LIKE ASPIRIN
2 TIMES IN THE MORNIN', AND 2 TIMES AT DUSK
TO GOD I'M PRECIOUS, MOVE LIKE EARTH CRUST
ATTACK N' LEAVE FEW DEFENSES

THE EARTH LEVITATES, DEEJAYS STORE RECORDS IN CRATES
AS I CONCENTRATE
TO GENERATE A MANDATE THAT WILL IRRITATE
THOSE WHO STAGNATE
MY CULTURE
REAPOLSTER EMCEE'S LIKE FURNITURE
THEN SIGN MY AUTOGRAPH
RECEIVED BURNT LIPS FROM SERAPHIM AND SERAPH
NOW I WRITE DEADLY PARAGRAPHS
N' LEAVE DEVASTATING AFTERMATHS
THAT SMASH THE PATHS OF WICKED OFFICIALS
'CUASE THEIR WAYS ARE SUPERFICIAL
I STEP ON EM, LIKE STAIR CLIMBIN AROBICS
PLUCK EM OUT LIKE ACCOUSTIC
THEN SEND THEIR PHILOSOPHIES AWAY, BROKEN N' AFFLICTED


SEND THEIR PHILOSOPHIES AWAY, BROKEN N' AFFLICTED
PLUCK EM OUT LIKE ACCOUSTIC
STEP ON EM LIKE STAIR CLIMBIN AROBICS
'CUASE THEIR WAYS ARE SUPERFICIAL
THESE WICKED OFFICIALS
I SMASH THEIR PATHS
N' LEAVE DEVASTATING AFTERMATHS
FROM MY WRITTEN DEADLY PARAGRAPHS
RECEIVED BURNT LIPS FROM SERAPHIM AND SERAPH
THE I SIGN MY AUTOGRAPH
REAPOLSTER EMCEE'S LIKE FURNITURE
FOR STAGNATING MY CULTURE
I GENERATE A MANDATE THAT WILL IRRITATE
AND AFTER I CONCENTRATE
I STORE RECORDS IN CRATES AS THE EARTH LEVITATES
ATTACK N' LEAVE FEW DEFENSES
MOVE LIKE EARTH CRUST, TO GOD I'M PRECIOUS
2 TIMES AT DUSK, AND 2 TIMES IN THE MORNIN'
DO SOME WORK ON YOUR BRAIN LIKE ASPIRIN
I STOMP AN ARMY LIKE THE SMALL FORCE OF GIDEON
THEN BLAST OUT WITH THE BATTLE HYMN OF THE UNION
N' ALTHOUGH I ONLY LOVE ONE WOMAN
I MARRIED MANY STYLES LIKE A POLYGAMIST
SPRING FORTH LIKE A MATTRESS
TO SUPPLEMEMNT EXTRAORDINARY TACTICS
I STRUCTURE MY FORCES ACCORDINGLY
N' PREVENT INJURIES TO MAKE CERTAIN OF VICTORY
I CHOP DEMONS IN VISECTOMIES
WHEN I FIND OUT THEY MISDIRECTED ME
HOLD MY MIC EFFECTIVELY
N' RECOGNIZE MY GIFTS TO ACCOMPLISH MINISTRY
Track Name: Essence
ESSENCE
ROCK AH YAH, HOSANNA
I CARRY MY LORD LIKE A BANNER
ONE DAY I'LL EAT MANNA IN THE HEAVENS
UNTIL THEN, KEEP MY BREAD UNLEAVENED
AND THE TOP OF MY HEAD UNSHAVENED
I SEND A QUIK RAP TO MESS UP YOUR WHOLE MONOLOGUE
I FIGHT HARD WITH THE POWER OF GOD
MY VOICE LIKE GOLDENROD
UNLIKE THOSE ON THE PROMENADE
I'M NOT LEISURELY
BUT USUALLY
THOSE OF YOU THAT HEARD OF ME
CAN'T MASTER THE ART OF ME
GOT THESE LYRICS FROM THE SCROLLS OF THE DEAD SEA

(deejay chorus)
'Mock my appearance yet yearn for my essence'

PRAISE THE OMNIPOTENT, THE VOCAL SUFFICIENT
YOU LIKE THE SOUND AND SO WILL YOUR DESCENDANTS
YOU STEAL LYRICS, BUT FORGET THE HOLY SPIRIT
NOW HOW CAN YOU BENEFIT
THAT'S ONLY TAKING HALF OF IT
THE HEART IS THE REST OF IT
WHAT'S AN EMCEE WITHOUT SOUL IN WHAT HE TRANSMIT
THAT'S DANGEROUS, WHEN YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THIS
BUT SINCE WE STARTED THIS, THAT STORIES BEEN AGELESS
IF IT AINT BROKE THEN DON'T FIX IT
TREAD THE SERPENTS HEAD
LYRICALLY THUROUGHBRED'ED
SQUEEZE A DRAGON LIKE BLACKHEAD
HIP-HOP IS EMCEE'S THAT REARRANGE THE ALPHABET
AND DEEJAYS THAT SPEAK WITH PHONOGRAPH DECKS
IT'S NOT DEVILS THAT COME WITH THEY OWN SCIENCE
MOCKING US, BUT YEARNING FOR THE ESSENCE
IT'S Bboys AND Bgirls WITH ILL FORMAT
PRAISIN' GOD THROUGH MOVEMENT ON LINOLEUM MATS
IT'S PENCILS AND PENS IN THE HANDS OF ARTIST
WE CAN'T LET LUCIFER PERVERT THIS

(beat break)
…Your whack, son!!….your whack

I DISAGREE
ALWAYS HAVE TO PROVE MYSELF TO THESE EMCEE'S
AS IF FIGHTIN' EVIL SPIRITS WASN'T ENOUGH FOR ME
SO BIG RESPECT DUE TO THOSE SUPPORTING ME
NOT GHANGING WHAT I AM
FOREVER MY MIC SLAM
AND MAKE THE HARDEST MISTER CHANGE HIS TITLE TO MADAME

(deejay chorus)
'Mock my appearance yet yearn for my essence'

(mini chorus)
MY CULTURE?…'HIP-HOP!'
PRAISE MY GOD?…'FROM THE ROOFTOPS!'
IF YOU WANNA DANCE?…'FOLLOW THE RYTHEM!'
WHEN DEVILS ATTACK?…'WE WILL FIGHT THEM!'

WHEN WE STUDY, IT'S WITH BIBLE CONCORDANCE
WHEN WE PRAISE GOD THROUGH MOVEMENT, IT'S CALLED BREAK DANCE
WHEN WE PRAISE HIM THROUGH ART, IT'S CALLED GRAFFITI
AND WHEN WE PRAISE GOD THROUGH LYRIC, IT'S CALLED EMCEE
WE EVEN PRAISE HIM WITH TURNTABLES AND CALL IT DEEJAY….

I WROTE THESE LYRICS AT 4am WITH FIRE IN THE PEN
THE THING ON MY MIND, DESTROY THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN
WITH MUSIC DEAFENING
AND PUTTING WICKED THOUGHTS IN THE POCKET OF A SLING AND FLINGING THEM
A PARAGRAPH PHARISEE
BUT JUST ONE THREAD IN THE TAPESTRY
THAT HATES BLASPHEMIES
REPRESENTIN' UNDERGROUND LIKE SEDIMENTARIES
TAKIN' DEAD MENTALS OUT OF THE CEMENTARIES
BUT I CAN'T DO IT SOLO
JUST LIKE THERE'S MORE THAN ONE STRING ON A CELLO
DISTUINGISH RITUAL FROM SPIRITUAL
THEN DROP THE HEAVY WAR MATERIAL
BUT THIS CAT APOLLYON
WHO ATTACKS LIGAMENTS AND TENDONS
'CAUSE HE CAN'T GET MY ESSENCE
HIS WEAK GAME IS IRRELEVANT
BUT YET HE TRIES TO TRAIN ME LIKE CIRCUS ELEPHANT
HE STOLE THE SOUL FROM WAY BACK
BUT BELIEVE THAT THIS CLEPTOMANIAC WON'T GET AWAY WITH THAT
WE RUNNIN' THIS GAME IN OPPOSITE
TAKING THE ESSENCE BACK FROM THE HIPOCRITES
Track Name: Devil's Heaven
DEVILS HEAVEN
CONSTANTLY OBSERVIANT TO THE FACT
THAT I WANNA BE SUBSERVIANT TO THE RIGHT PATH
BUT THIS DEVILS HEAVEN
STEAL MY INNER SIGHT, WITH MIXED SIGNALS IN MY CEREBRUM
I’M TRYIN TO GRAB GOD WITHOUT A THUMB
DEMORAL SOOTHES THE PAIN, PHYSICAL
BUT MY MENTAL IMPRISONMENT
IS STUNTING MY DEVELOPMENT
I LOOK AROUND AND ONLY SEE TAINTED HARVEST
AND PEOPLE PAYIN RENT IN SATANIC PROJECTS
AND THE KIDS TODAY, FEEL THAT LIFE IS HOPELESS
SO THEY LUBRICATE THEMSELVES WITH INTOXICANTS
LEAF LICKERS IGNORANT TO THE FACT
THAT GOD RUNS THE ONLY TRUE ADMINISTRATION
SO THEY FIGHT WITH CRANAL WEAPONS
AS THEIR MINDS ARE SHRUNK BY TELEVISION
AND EXPLOITED BY PERVERSION
WITH NO ONE SEEKIN ANY KIND OF SOLUTION
BRINGIN FORTH A POLLUTION
THAT’S RISING FROM THE SMOKE STACK!
THIS DEVILS HEAVEN!
GOT ME SO I CAN’T EVEN SEE 7 INCHES IN FRONT OF MY COUNTENANCE
FILLIN THE AIR THAT WE BREATHE WITH AN EVIL SUBSTENANCE
DEVILS INNOCULATE, BUT IT’S OUR OWN FLESH THAT ENHANCE
AND NOW DISEASE DETCTIVES ARE HUNTING THIS SICK VIRUS
THAT STOLE THE FOCUS FROM MY IRIS
LEAVING 2 LAWS FIGHTING IN MY OWN RESIDENCE (Rom. 7:13-25)
WE SEEK GRATIFICATION, REGARDLESS OF THE CONSEQUENCES
SIN IS INSIDIOUS, BUT OUR PRAYER CLOSETS ARE NEGLECTED
AND FOR THIS
WE FALL OFF THE PRECIPICE
N’ NO WORD IN ANY DICTIONARY/THESUARUS
CAN WE UTTER TO SAVE US
WE MAKE COMMITMENTS AND PROMISES
KNOWING VERY WELL THAT WE DON’T MEAN TO KEEP THEM!
THIS DEVIL’S HEAVEN!


WEAK MINDS GOT BROAD TONGUES
YEILDING NEW STRAINS OF POISON
CREATING AN UNSTEADY CIRRICULUM
SOME TURN THEIR ATTENTION TOWARDS THE MESSENGERS OF GOD
WORSHIPPING ANGELS AND/OR PHYSICAL ARTIFACTS
HOLY WATER AND OIL FROM ETERNAL LAMP
HEAL ME! BUT THE PRAISE IS DIRECTED TOWARDS CREATION
WHICH INSTITUTES MAXIMUM FRICTION
KILLING TRUE FAITH WITHIN THE CONGREGATION
PICKIN UP SIGNALS OF A PROCESS OF DEVALUTION
THROUGH REDEFINITION
SOLDIERS LOOK LIKE SKELETON!
BLOWIN ON ME AS IF THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS SOME KIND OF MYSTICAL FORCE THAT CAN BE BLOWN FROM THE MOUTH ON COMMNAND!!
I’M WEARIN SACKCLOTH AND GRABBIN EARTH IN MY HAND!
REPENT AND TURN BACK FROM GHETTO TO SUBURBAN
SETTLEMENTS!
AND STOP FOCUSING ON PHYSICAL EXPERIENCE
I’M SENSING A LACK OF AUTHORITY
AND EVEN IN MY OWN HEART, I’M PONDERING CONSTANTLY
AND IN AN EFFORT TO ELIMINATE THE DIFFICULTIES
I’M BREATHIN DUST OF CONSPIRACIES
WHILE HEARIN HARSH WORDS FROM OTHER EMCEE’S
THAT WERE MEANT TO EDIFY ME, BUT INSTEAD THEY BREAK ME!

SINCE GOD IS MAXIMUM, WHY DO WE SEEK OUT MINIMUM!?
THIS DEVILS HEAVEN!
GOT US LIVIN IN DESPERATE TIMES
YET WE ARE NOT SEEKIN GOD DESPERATELY!
EMMITING DOCTRINES FALSELY
TOSSED TO N’ FRO BY WINDS VIOLENTLY
THIS DEVILS HEAVEN!
GOT PEOPLE SO THEY’LL ONLY BELIEVE IF THEY SEE A SIGN OR MIRACLE
ALTERNATING ERADICALL
WHILE LAUGHING AND HOWLING HYSTERICALLY
UNABLING ME TO HEAR THE MESSAGES OF GOD!…CHA!….
Track Name: Judas Amongst Us (w/ Messenger, 2211)
JUDAS AMONGST US
(Messenger)
OUTTA LUCK, STUCK INNNA RUT, I JUST GAVE UP
WALKED AWAY FROM LIFE LIKE I HAD NO TIES TO LACE UP
YOU PLAYED ME LIKE CLOSE BROTHER BUT YOU STABBED ME
MOVED IN AS LIGHT BECAUSE YOU THOUGHT THE DARKNESS HAD ME
ENVIED MY FAMILY, COVETED A WOMAN WHO AINT YOURS
WITH INTENTS OF MOVIN' IN AS YOU WALKED THROUGH MY HOUSE'S DOORS
PAYED VISITS, MADE PHONE CALLS, WHEN MY CAR WAS GONE
SINKING YOUR CLUTHCHES DEEPER JUST TO MAKE ME MORE FAR GONE
WHISPER THINGS IN HER EAR TO MAKE HER HATE ME
ALL THE WHILE YOU SMILED TO MY FACE AS YOU BLATANTLY BETRAYED ME
I THOUGHT THE LOVE OF CHRIST WAS YOUR MAIN DRIVE
FOOLED BY YOUR WALK AS YOU HIT ME WITH MORE LIES
INSTEAD OF BRINGIN US BACK
YOU PUSHED US EVEN FARTHER
AND WHAT I THOUGHT WAS EASY, YOU MADE IT EVEN HARDER
BUT NOW I'M BACK WITH RIBBON SEEDS, AND ITS HARD FOR ME TO FACE YOU
BUT I SERVE A GOD WHO WON'T LET ME HATE YOU SO I PRAY FOR YOU

(Chorus)
Judgement day, whattya gonna do, on the judgement day
The hours of your life are quikly passing

(2211)
YO, 'ET TU, BRUTUS', OR ME AND YOU 'JUDAS'
ALWAYS CONVINCED IN MY MIND 'YOU BE THE MAN', LOCUST
NO TRUST, FOR THE EXCOMMUNICATED 12TH DISCIPLE
I CAUGHT A KNIFE-FULL, A SEGMENT OF YOUR LIFE, FOOL
OF ALL YOUR ACTIONS, MISTA, I CAN'T IMAGINE
PROSTITUTION OF YOUR HEART, I'M SHOCKED THAT YOU'D BE DABBLIN'
WITH REBELLION, SELLIN OUT WITHIN YOUR CABIN
YOUR BACKSTABBIN
TWAS MY MASTER YOU BETRAYED, THE ANCIENT OF DAYS
DON'T YOU REALIZED YOU GOT PLAYED
30 PIECES OF SILVER, WORST TRADE YOU EVER MADE
TREASURER, 'CAUSE WHAT WAS YOUR PLEASURE?
AND WHICH ETERNAL PRESENCE DID YOUR ESSENCE ENTER?
OR WILL IT? 'CUASE YOUR PRESENCE, I STILL FEEL IT
EVERY TIME SOMEONE I LOVE GETS KILLED, ITS HARD FOR ME TO WATCH THEM DIE
SLOWLY AND IN PAIN
'CAUSE THE 'ISCARIOT BETRAYING' IS LIKE AN UNEXPECTED RAIN
I CAN'T EXPLAIN, I MUST DETAINED, I NEED RESTRAINED
OR BODY PARTS WILL GET REARRANGED
'CAUSE I KNOW WHO 'JUDAS' IS, AND IT DRIVES ME INSANE
I FEEL DISDAINED, BUT I CAN'T RIP KIP IN VAIN
'CAUSE I KNOW FOR 'FAKE' AND 'REAL' MY MASTER WAS SLAINED
AND SO THUS, I POSE THE QUESTION, JUDAS
JUST WHEN'D YA TAKE THE FIRST STEP TO BETRAY US

(Dirt)
WHAT THE HECK IS THIS
I SCREAM AS I EXIT THE UTERUS
I SEEN BLOODY GLOVES N' NURSES, BUT DIRT IS FATHERLESS
TO FOLLOW THIS
GREW UP BLAMIN' GOD FOR ALL OF THIS
HEART WAS HEAVINESS
SO I TOOK THE HATE TO THE PAVEMENTS
MISBEGOTTEN…ILLEGITEMATE
COULD NEVER GET INTIMATE
WITH MAN OR GOD, BECAUSE OF IT
N' LIKE JOSEPH
THEY GRABBED THAT SON UP BY HIS THROAT
SPLASHED SOME BLOOD ON HIS COAT
N' SOLD HIM TO SLAVERY
I SEEN THE SAME SIN ENSLAVIN' ME
THE SAME CHAIN TRYIN TO GAIN REIGN WITHIN ME
TRYIN' TO SEND ME…OUTTA SYNC
N' THAT SAME SHIP THAT ALWAYS SINK
BUT THE BLOOD OF THE SON BREAK THE LINK
THAT TIE ME TO THIS
'CAUSE GOD IS DAD TO THE FATHERLESS' (Psalm 68:5)

WROTE THIS SONG WITH GRAPHITE
PREPARE TO RHYME FIGHT
NOW HOLD YOUR MIC TIGHT
REMEMBER THIS! DIRT THE VERBALIST

BUT THERES NO DEATH MORE CERTAIN THAN THE DEATH INSIDE OF YOU!
SOME MEN DIE OF SHRAPNEL, BUT MOST MEN DIE!
INCH BY INCH…

Track Name: 2 Laws (w/ Optimus Rhyme, Epsilon, Roldan))
2 LAWS
(OPTIMUS RHYME)
WHO CAN UNDERSTAND JEHOVAH GODS SOVEREIGN PLAN
NO ONE CAN, NOT EVEN UNIVERSE MAN
IT'S MORE COMPLICATED THAN TRYIN TO COUNT ALL THE SAND
IN THE LAND WITH YOUR BARE HANDS
IT'S ALSO HARD TO COMPREHEND, HOW HE WOULD SEND
HIS ONLY SON TO DIE
ON THE CROSS FOR OUR LIVES
HOW WE ARE SYMPATHIZED, IN HIS EYES
HE DIED ON THE CROSS, HE DIED FOR THE LOST
TO RELEIVE US FROM THE WORLDWIDE SPIRITUAL HOLOCUAST
THE COST WAS PAID, GOD FORGAVE THOSE WHO HE CHOSE TO SAVE
FROM THE BLAZE OF THE GRAVE
RESURECTED FROM THE LIFE THAT HE PERFECTED
SHAMED, TOTALLY DEPRAVED, CHAINED SLAVE, RENEGADE
SOULS BEEN DECAYED, UNTAMED, FILLED WITH RAGE
WITH THE BLOOD OF THE BEAST RUNNIN' THROUGH THE VEINS
TRYIN' TO HIDE FROM THE LIGHT LIKE A MASQEURADE
LAYS IN THE SHADE ALL DAY
LIKE A CASTAWAY, TOOK THE WRONG PATHWAY
DISOBEYED AND BETRAYED
GOD THE MAKER, CREATOR, REBROBATE, PLAYER HATER FOLLOWIN'
TRAECHEROUS WAYS THAT ARE FALLACIOUS DANGEROUS SINS
LIKE LUSTS FROM WITHIN
LEAVE YOU LIKE DUST BLOWIN' IN THE GUST WIND
YOU MUST WIN
THE BATTLE
BUT BEFORE YOU GET IN THE SADDLE
THE HOLY GHOST HAS TO GO THROUGH YOUR BONE MARROW
AND FREE YOU TO THE PATH THAT'S NARROW
LIKE MOSES AND HIS STAFF DID TO PHAROAH
SHOOT THE ARROW AT THE DARK FORCES OF THE SHADOW
MINDS RATTLE, WHEN I COME WITH MY LYRICAL LASSO
THAT ENTACKLES THOSE WHO ARE SHACKLED BY SINS
GRAB HOLD!….

(Epsilon)
TORN FLESH LIES, THE GROUND SATURATED IN THE BLOOD OF THE HATED
THE LOVE THAT WAS CONSTRUCTED SLOWLY FADED
HOLY DAVID, THE WICKED GIANTS, CLASHED OF THE TITANS
CHERRY MOON DRIPS AND SPLASHED THE FLOOD
MURDERED THE VIKINGS WITH LIGHTNING
BY THE MORTAL SON, HUMAN SYNOGOGUE
TIMES ARE HARD, TOO 'CLICCHE'
YET WE STILL DON'T SEE GOD
FAILURE TO SUBMIT, WEAK MINDS
CAVE IN, THE MEAK CAN'T SEE BEYOND THE FALLEN WALLS OF CANNAN
LIFES ARCHERS KEEP THEIR AIMING, THE BULLS EYE OF A HIGHER PERSPECTIVE
ARROWS FLAMIN', PHAROAH'S UNPROTECTED
REVELATION OF AN UNTOLD SAGA
WISDOM HOLLERS TILL HER VOICE IS RESTRAINED
WHILE MAN CHASES A PAINTED DOLLAR
LOOSE COLLARS, AND SHORT LEASHES
TO INCREASE THE PROFITS OF MY DOGS
WHO SEEK GOD AND HIS FLEET
FIGHTIN' THE BACK OF EARTHS REWARDS
3 SWORDS AND 6 PLAGUES, THAT'S MY NURSE AID
THEY CURSE ME, AND IT HURT, NOW MY TALENT IS THE FIRST PLAGUE
THE FIRST SIGN OF SHADE, I'M RESTING
THE FIRST SIGN OF PAIN, I'M BLESSING
RIGHTEOUSS SPEECH TEACH A LESSON
LOST DISCIPLES EMERGE FROM THE UNDERGROUND
UNLOCK THE SHACKLES OF THE BOUND
LOVE IS THE KEY, HIP-HOP'S THE SOUND
IT'S FOUND WITH LITERATURE, EXPERIENCING THE SCRIPTURE
THAT'S SENT FROM HEAVEN, LET MY VERSES VISIT YA
PARAGON, MAGESTIC, MYSTERIES…CAN YOU SOLVE IT?
4RTH DEMINSION DESCENDANT, 6 CHAMBERS, SON, LET ME REVOLVE IT

GOD MULTIPLIED THE 2 FISH THE LITTLE BOY BROUGHT TO THE MASTER
TO FEED THE HUNGRY MASSES
AND THE 5 LOAVES FROM THE BASKET
BUT STILL WE PASS IT
LOOKIN' FOR OTHER THINGS TO SATISFY US
WHEN WE PICK BERRIES, WE LET THE THORNS STICK US
WHEN WE ARE DOWN, WE LET DEVILS KICK US
CREATED BY GOD, AND GIVEN TO MAN
BUT MAN FORFEITED IT TO SATAN
TEMPTING US TO ACTIVITIES THAT ARE FRUITLESS
THROWING SPEARS INTO THE RIBCAGE OF JESUS
DECEPTIONS OBVIOUS
BUT SINCE THE EGYPTIANS SMASHED WOOD TO PAPRYUS
WE BEEN LETTIN' COBRAS SLAP US
AND AS THE SECOND LAW FIGHTS TO ENTRAP US
WE FREEZE IN PARALYSIS
IS THE WALLS CLOSING IN ON US?
IS THAT AN ANGEL (FALLEN ANGEL)AT THE RADIUS?
I THINK HE'S COMING OVER TO US
PUTTING COLD HANDS ON OUR NECKS AND CHOKING US
WHAT HAVE WE GOT OURSELVES INTO?
