Track Name: Breaking Behavoirs feat. Puffer
Why must people behave this way?
I don’t know it’s makes me wanna go and find
another place to live out the rest of my days in peace and say

In the beginning before any of us were living
even before the earth formed and started spinning
dark matter energy light it’s all within me
contained in the base of my brain infinitely

rhyme spitting thinking If i could only turn my mind off for one second
Shit, I’d probably spend more time sleeping
deeply concerned with feelings that burn
at some point, and for each one I recommend one joint

i’m up late like a tweaker only I ain’t tweaking
smoking weed for my seizures wait, I ain't seizin
exactly I learned that trick from my seniors
who say they only buy weed for medical reasons

I’m living in montana with all four seasons
outside under a tree writing to the breeze its
my own little piece of paradise
and when you roam through the woods long enough you'll learn to carry light

I carry twice what I need to take flight
just in case these thieves wanna break in and take mine
sit and smile in the middle of the night I watch em slither by
it’s a trap, I left bombs strapped to candle light

Why must people behave this way?
I don’t know it’s makes me wanna go and find
another place to live out the rest of my days in peace and say

Would you mind telling me what could be so important
we waste our whole lives struggling to afford it
the source of such great importance
like you got suckered into buying ten percent of the lord its

water to wine, if it’s all the same with you i’ll take a little white blotter in mine
laced with the only true holy spirit the mind
third eye open pupil dilated slightly focused
on that fun ride that one time we fucking died

nevermind it’s lunch time, time to stuff that fat fuck face and bust rhymes
from rap gods to fat slobs we blab on it’s ad hoc
yo let’s all gather around and watch mat rot

Yeah huh, I spin around in a thousand circles then land in that plot
or better yet burn my body on the grass and pass pot
and when your done all of yall can get your ass the fuck off of Mat’s lawn

master how the trips are usually soothing
like dmt is a niagrous of epiphanous beauty
blindly I think finally, something to confine me
then dragged me kicking and screaming into the night sea

Why must people behave this way?
I don’t know it’s makes me wanna go and find
another place to live out the rest of my days in peace and say

let me leave you with a little shit that’s got me troubled
first off religious nuts are turning subways into rubble
so break out the foot long and hustle down the field like football
we got a flag on the play BUT IT’S ON FIRE!

and now we’re all lost like the black smoke thing
nevermind thats just mat off moping
slowly trying to adjust to new ways of coping
hoping we can all get out this building without choking

so tell me what the hell are poor people supposed to do
watch sports drink fuck and hope social security comes through
when the blind lead the blind what will the blind bind into?
lemmings jumping off the bridge just to try something new

but I’m a writer with desire and the passion to destroy
any person place or thing that tries to cast me to the void
that’s why I avoid the noid like dominos
motherfucker what’s happening in a world where they call the drones

to haul the loads of fallen souls who called the show and saw the hole
filled with all of those who lost the vote can hit the foggy road
and I’m sorry if I sound a little detached
I will shut the fuck up now and let Marc Lee scratch.
Track Name: Ladies and Gentlemen
Don’t get it twisted the scope of this dopeness is infinite
you could only hope to make Europa before hitting quit
ladies and gentlemen clones made with eloquence
welcome to your new digs

Drop the bomb kids get under chairs
while we getting the nuclear fallout clear
it’s all out here kick the window out and crawl out there
underneath the stairs just don’t breath in the air

gotta find another planet we can live on
and get life back to normal in the valley like silicon
no back alley trash clogging up the streets
no streets bogging down our new elite

tie a string around your finger so you don’t forget
when humanity breaks down like elements
the only resolution is we’re all doomed kids
with the tools we’ve created to choose it

SO don’t get it twisted the scope of this dopeness is infinite
you could only hope to make europa before hittin quit
ladies and gentlemen clones made with eloquence
welcome to your new digs

(Sick scratch break....)

Don’t get it twisted the scope of this dopeness is infinite
you could only hope to make Europa before hitting quit
ladies and gentlemen clones made with eloquence
welcome to your new digs

But if it’s still inhabited we’ll defend this planet
and back hand slap aliens like tennis rackets
it’s zero love there’s no hero above
just a bunch of residual radiation in our blood

what the fuck is that in the sky it’s invaders
coming to our little blue dot to claim her
as soon as they get here the greys hit paydirt
time to leave now it’s too late to save her

the sky rains fire and destruction
dire times when you're fighting lies and corruption
no computer malfunction that was us kid
so put down your weapons and come stand with us when

there’s no fuckin way we’ll duck and wave while you suck our brains
on a summer day run away and make the bunker rain
some suckers stayed they prayed for another way
some will say holy fucking shit they’re coming our way

So don’t get it twisted the scope of this dopeness is infinite
you could only hope to make Europa before hitting quit
ladies and gentlemen clones made with eloquence
welcome to your new digs

(Another Sick Scratch break....)

That’s just another day in the arcade
playing space invaders servin bars like a bar maid
arcane parlez to this large prey
when the predator is on the hunt looking to mark shade

got the ray gun charged ready to get your heart slain
no reset button is pain when in the wrong game
its all shame on the aliens running our planet
did you really go intergalactic just to scavenge it?

tie a string around your finger so you don’t forget
when humanity breaks down like elements
the only resolution is we’re all doomed kids
with the tools we’ve created to choose it

SO don’t get it twisted the scope of this dopeness is infinite
you could only hope to make europa before hittin quit
ladies and gentlemen clones made with eloquence
welcome to your new digs
Track Name: Ghosts in the Ether
We’re the ghosts in the ether
Either you’ve never seen us or you're a believer

I go bump in the night puff buds when I write
spend a lot of time staring up at the sky
up late at night enlightening
anyone we come into contact with that wants a ride wanna try?

One of mine two of yours three of his four of hers
sounds like the right way to make this cat’s night purrfect
that’s how it goes when these kids
get a hold of a bunch of LSD hits

what's next Dimethyltryptamine? Ok!
but only if you bring the machine out to play
sounds like the best recipe
with a set and setting that agrees with my registry

technology philosophy physics and astronomy
logic gate monopoly offers entropy offerings
no stopping autonomy honestly dropping bombs on you and me constantly

how to kill the mocking birds eye view hunting the haunted
awkwardly walking backwards out of the ball pit
we need an exorcist! No, we just need exercise, SHIT
and some litmus paper to test the lie.

so line em up and make them testify
sure we can all pretend the system is witnessing life
broken worthless hold your tongue a bunch of jerks here
getting hung up on the phone ready to get cold and drunk

(This is the BREAK....)

Are you ready to get bold and told what the fuck to be when you're sold?
Hmmm Let me think about it, I’m not that guy nope...
I’m that guy writing the note as your whole corporate office swings from a rope
now let’s get paid overtime!

the gestation period for these types of things is 45
now he’s old and dry like Monty Python codes in Vi
blow by the blow back and go buy a whole sack of this dope ass rap shit from good old mat

Wackness can’t fathom this manic magic phantom rapping bastion from northwest Montana
trapped in this stupid human space suit nap
I’m ready to hit the next exit fast and make more rap

that's just a day in the life of this god of the gaps
watching time go by and walking oddly fast
that’s because my life is slowly crawling and passed out
before i had a chance to get the rest of my cash out

but ghosts don’t need money do they
that’s fine I wasn’t going anywhere today anyway

we’re the ghosts in the ether
either you’ve never seen us or you’re a believe
Track Name: Remedia Amoria feat. Saylor
Tell me what can we do now
either way somebody has to choose how
let it be the ones with everything to lose now
right or wrong its your move now
it’s your move now

I got three things on this list of shit we need to fix
before any of these people get to sleep a bit
first of all most of these leaders are creepy shit
Ghosts in a machine that feeds on all this ignorance

this democracy hypocrisy has got to be
the most awful awkward thing I thought I’d see
in my thirty something years smoking weed on top of peaks
Funny money monopolies poison you, me, and the crop seeds
And for what? If not greed then you got me

Tell me what can we do now
either way somebody has to choose how
let it be the ones with everything to lose now
right or wrong it’s your move now

number two has to do with all these troubled youth
Run through the skull by church yea no wonder you
have lines out the doors like blind zombie hordes
all violent and hostile, they found God in psych ward

You know they're lion like Voltron with two swords
Transforming archangels into dark overlords
fuck yea that’s a Howard the Duck reference
to show you how serious we take your generic
Fake ass bullshit mind controlling rhetoric

Tell me what do we do now
someone has to choose
let it be the ones with everything to lose
right or wrong, it’s time to move on
I'll miss you when you're gone
miss you when you’re gone

Alright, last but not least right now for me
has got to be that whole fucking thing in middle east
why the fuck can’t we all just get along?
oh that’s right because we have bombs and they have bombs

All bombs car bombs from large to small bombs
bombs for your home and office bombs for your mom
We got bombs in your closet
we’ve all fucking lost
if we can’t get along at least we can bomb shit
until the globe is haunted no one cares what it cost

Tell me what can we do now
either way somebody has to choose how
let it be the ones with everything to lose now
right or wrong its your move now
it’s your move now

Tell me what do we do now
someone has to choose
let it be the ones with everything to lose
right or wrong, it’s time to move on
I'll miss you when you're gone
miss you when you’re gone
Track Name: Star Scanning
star scanning left to right large panning my
field of view obscured by the last camp standing
my ship packed last of the food in a knapsack I
take one last look at the planet that we ran sacked

You can't take it back once the planets ruined bad
Launch pad ready for the mission to the lunar map
Warp drive tested lessons learned from explosions that
Shook the human race so bad now we're moving to our last chance

To make a future that involves plans to evolve
faster than we could before the great drake equations solved
Were only Type 1hoping to be Type 2
And one day control the stars like you know we're destined to

Right now we're destitute looking just to rest our shoes
But our planets blowing up rockets blasting off soon
Are you on the arc ticket punched one way to the stars
Or get left behind in the dust like a bunch cars

Blast cap fashioned to this death trap crashing
I’m past the point of no return and back in a flash caption
Cash calves grazing for no payment when they crap grass
Pass mat a little pinch and take one last look at the....

so we see a tiny slice of spectrum fully inspected
to wreck a section of the populous with this little invention
no apprehension appreciate this app we crafted rappin
then apply before you depreciate like A. Jackson

I’m blowing these puzzles all apart taking weed to go a la carte
So muzzle up that mouth before you forget where you park
I rock a mic right down to the sedimentary layers
like every night inside the halls of my secret lair

people screaming hands up waving in the air
people leaving don’t look back and take a nap we’re almost there
I hide and seek the truth inside the booth
busy body wandering through this swampy soup
so cop me loot and point to say what not to shoot
