Track Name: South California f. Zumbi: In my city is blacks and blocks Where avenues and street tops where people struggle to sleep Ahk theres trouble and beef, gold teeth rocks get thrown at the higher power but dont reach Pops aint home, Mama been long gone away, so the children run stray Cannibalistic war play Its animalistic where I stay The devil wan' play and too many contestants thats every day The level gon stay where its at, Stay strapped. Global Warming all the yields falling down, Sisyphus is dead all the the hills falling down. Track Name: Beyond The Sun f. Murs & Grieves. the hand Friends. S.O.S: Follow me entering this digital odyssey Holy matrimony but harder to see Everywhere but non-existant, what a conundrum Upgraded but they say that we forgot where we come from The past feels even further with every second Off the record, the coming and going of Kbps's In the day of the instant message The message is misdirected and the receiver seems to be disconnected But don't complain, love gain Even after the flood came in and left our neighbors over-saturated With no computer love, just computer bugs Hate the virus and not the hacker, that's what a loser does Meanwhile, the kids are playing shoot em' ups Trying to be the 2.0 version of Super Thug Press reset, any era you wish to visit is next Hold on as we eject.
