Track Name: Choices
Grab the mask, ask myself if I'm doing it righteous?
I've been lifeless more than once and solved a few crisis
Web slinger flow, instead of a singer glow
I make it winger so to defend I throw zinger blows
Check the wrist and check the fluid, and I do it
Dead of night with no recognition, none to intrude it
Stopping criminals, reading messages subliminal
I was in for the most pure of reasons, minimal
But nowadays the vigilantism gets complicated
Every move instigated becomes premeditated
It's like being a super hero is being the villain
And the villains are celebrated, they're making a killin'
I get held down with the tentacles made of anchors
Oil explosion of a tanker, a dent in a wealthy banker
Seeking the sea king, I'm the only one left
And I'm inept and in depth with no time to rest
The title of this tidal wave is just entitlement
And the betterment is just a settlement for our grave
Corruption's at an all time high like the fumes
But I resume the mask wearing like I'm Dr. Doom
Fantastic for your information, face it
The thing is I'm torching any kind of replacements
Though my plights and tasks are undone, invisible
It's making me miserable, my spirit divisible
Lose the heart and replace with a generator
No more emotions, use my wealth cause I've been a player!
The irony of this man is my personality layered
And no one ever dug deep enough to actually care
Never mind that, amplify my motions, quotients
Are being quoted as potent, so you should know this
Despite how I illuminate the truth with the lantern
The people see the green light and they damper
They stop and pop and are shocked so they mock
A parody they see as hilarity so I remained rock
Solid, I return to the sewers and the squalid
No brothers around and my master closed his eye lids
No one around except for all this hatred
Why not release the monster? They're gonna pay, kid!
Crack one joke, and now the whole game has changed
Burn an entire mountain of money for some change
Smile on everyone's faces, they called me mad?
Get glad, I'm what you wanted, no more being sad
The sunshine was too much for you, they did mind
So now the dark side is here, it's clear to find
That an apocalyptic frozen tundra is here to stay
Forget the heroes of yesterday, take the Bane way
I now scare crows and I go so crazy with the flow
That you should know I laughed at any joke
Riddle me this, if I belittle the wit
Then in the middle of hits, I would griddle the bit
The bat and at that, a two faced man said it best
Die a hero or live to be a villain. Yes!
Before I regress or I forget
The lessons here is to be a -
Track Name: Literary Lion's Den
[Intro]
Every time I'm on a track, it's a hit, man!
Black suit red tie, lyrical hit-man
Making songs of myself, rap Whitman
I withstand quicksand and the tips and

Welcome to the literary lion's den
Armed without knowledge, try again
Welcome to the literary lion's den
Armed without knowledge, try again

[Verse]
I give y'all crime and punishments
My rhymes are gathered in a hundred abundances
Y'all are Idiots and I don't want one bit of it
Notes from the underground tell me that it's intimate
Getting my JD on, who's the challenger?
I'm a mix of Dilla Jermaine and Salinger
I'm the Catcher in the rye but way to fly
I call the shots from up high, call it in the sky
These phonys are baloney with their testimony
I lay down the matrimony in harmony like the Tony's
Not talking pizza, but I've got piece of mind
Machiavelli status, tactical maneuvers so I'm hard to find
I'm the General in the Labyrinth, grab a bit
And the saddest wit generates the maddest hit
Singing carols about jabberwockys way stocky
Don't mind me, it's confidence and not cocky
The five MCs that you meet in heaven
Are inside of my headphones, already connected
God sent talent that makes me balance out well
I excel well. Tale of a heart, please do tell
Frost on this track, I'm the road less traveled
I unravel, dabble and realize I'm my only battle
I stay clever and above the weather so together
My rhymes are wetter and bright like scarlet letters
Residing in the house of the lyrics, get in the spirit
The patron with mucho tone, you better cheer it
Otherwise spend 100 years inside of solitude
Playing marbles, cards without anyone to bother you
A lonely depression as you seek a great perhaps
Well this mishap has landed you inside my lap
And your Great Expectations lose inflation
The duration is shortened like a Scottish Locations
Short with the bread, greenbacks, so you dread
My style is sickening: keeps you inside of bed
I'm great like Gatsby, don't ask me
Remain classy, don't sass me or end up in the past, B!
Mercutio flow so I go plague your abode
And in this mode I shall speak in the most ancient of code
Like the catastrophe of comedy
My cue is villainous melancholy, fa so la mi

[Outro] x2
Every time I'm on a track, it's a hit, man!
Black suit red tie, lyrical hit-man

Track Name: Stuck in the Middle
Let me introduce you to a couple friends of mine
If you don't mind, but you'll like em just fine
The first one is Valor, he goes by a lotta names
He ignites with great passion, he's fire and the flames
The type of dude that dedicates his entire fiber
He's the dude that makes me a street fighter in ciphers
He never really gets tired, but strives unbelievable
It's hard to keep up with him, the man is deep in soul
I like to call him Strength, he's such an omni-don
His name is also Confidence, he is my confidant
The only thing is that he gets outta control every now and then
Loud and likes to stand out and never blend
You see, Valor is kind of insecure, though he hides it well
He's always happy on the outside, but it's hard to tell
He's got a couple problems, but all and all, in the end
I need Valor and he's one of my closest friends

[Chorus]
You've got some friends? Well me too
They're imaginary but not see through
I'm not trying to speak in riddle
But with all of my friends, I'm stuck somewhere in the middle

You've got some friends? Well me too
They're imaginary but not see through
I'm not trying to speak in riddle
But with all of my friends, I'm stuck somewhere in the middle

[Verse 2]
Reason is the brain of the bunch, the higher level thinking
Always tea drinking never letting time be sinking
He's high-effective, directed, with intelligence generous
Never letting it become irrelevant
Reason, he drops knowledge on the vapid fools
Staying calm, collected and cool like lapris pools
Valor on the otherhand is all gung-ho
But my man Reason can see when it's good to fly low
Always planning ahead, even if it isn't necessary
And he likes getting that CREAM, the best of dairy!
Reason desires the high-priced high life
But he does know it isn't required to be alive
It's just that Reason doesn't want to be forgotten
He needs to do his greatness before his thoughts turn rotten
Even so, he drops that nerdiness like falling comic books
My friend, you to me are an upside down rook

[Chorus]
You've got some friends? Well me too
They're imaginary but not see through
I'm not trying to speak in riddle
But with all of my friends, I'm stuck somewhere in the middle

You've got some friends? Well me too
They're imaginary but not see through
I'm not trying to speak in riddle
But with all of my friends, I'm stuck somewhere in the middle

[Verse 3]
Finally we have the troubled one, we call him Monster
He's like a mix of Valor and Reason unconquered
We've sent him to a doctor, but of course no cure
But's all good, we know him as one of our peers
Sometimes he slips in thoughts that are deemed scary
But his process varies expansive like a library
Monster is a little skitzo on the flow though
He switches to Hero sometimes before he blows yo
And Hero is the virtue and the gleam of brightness
That stand-up good dude that has no likeness
Hero is the person you would describe as flawless
Chilling in the office, so professional no novice
But Hero is Monster and Monster is Hero
And sometimes they all get mixed up and it goes
A bit crazy, a bit unpredictable, and difficult
But hey, these are my friends of my heart, very typical
Valor and Reason, Hero and Monster
If you take a second really to just ponder
You'll realize the song of myself, the balance of opposites
Is just how Takumi is deemed as the moderate

[Chorus]
You've got some friends? Well me too
They're imaginary but not see through
I'm not trying to speak in riddle
But with all of my friends, I'm stuck somewhere in the middle

You've got some friends? Well me too
They're imaginary but not see through
I'm not trying to speak in riddle
But with all of my friends, I'm stuck somewhere in the middle
Track Name: JustAnotherLoveSong
Intertwining fingers lacing together, perfection
Our steps lined up in the same manner and direction
Climate warming up, our bodies melt into one
The laughs we make echo, reflection on our fun
Quiet thoughts pass between us through mere glances
Conversing without words, we became through chances
The leaves fall and the rain pelts our skin
We smile through it all within we have a win
A spirit, a flame that cannot ever be extinguished
And our physical features as a unit is distinguished
People scratch their heads and look quizzically
I whisper in your ear and we giggle mystically
They don't know who we are, but they can imagine
Though it's hard to think of what really happened
Fuse into each others warmth, hand in hand
Heart and heart, we don't even understand
What this is, how it is, and what to make of it
Smudged cocoa on the counter and the oven mitt
Dishes in the sink, time flies by in a blink
We don't have thoughts together, we say what we think
Through all the weather, bad and it's inclemency
We found our own shelter for our intimacy
Crumbs left behind from grilled cheese sandwiches
Annoying couple antics, how can our friends handle it?

Embrace like lost lovers after five minutes away
Our faces are barely touching, we like it that way
Pearl white smile contrasts with my jet black hair
Yours a smooth brown and I grin wide enough to share
A tan complexion nears yours brings out luminance
Rumors about us? No one would ever stoop to it
Hall of fame couple destined to be in the year book
I wonder if anyone has us damn near mistook
For something else, someone else or a different relationship?
Well what you see first is just an interracial mix
But I guess we're deeper than that like a treasure chest
It's me and you together babe, this ultimate conquest
We can't be stopped! This is fact, obviously
Our skill together cannot be bought, Monopoly
Came through hard work dedication and all that jazz
We're the cat's pajamas, we're built to last
Preemo, indeed yo, we are bees knees, oh
We go to infinity and beyond galactic status, here we go!
Call me a bowl of Yoda soup: happy miso!
Adorable individual brings forth the best in me
A formula empirical, we have chemistry
Electricity in the Electric City
I'll make sure I'm dolled up so we BOTH look pretty
The odd couple, the flawed tussle
A match made for trouble but look at it bubble
We rose right up to be dancing with the lights on
Skipping in the snow without matching Nikes on
Track Name: Star Stuff
[Chorus]
Everyday a star is born x2

[Verse 1]
MC Nebula just some dust in space
But I am every stars birth place
Before they can even take shape
I am the first entity and beginning state
I am made up of mainly hydrogen gasses
Interstellar clouds that are too massive
Couple million years, not too passive
You can't rush beautiful art: classic

[Verse 2]
Protostar is born from the nebula
This step by far is quite regular
Surrounded by a planetary disk
It's all in the wrist, I rotate like this:
Pizza dough thrown in the air up high
Flatten me out then I contract, sigh
Depending on my mass, I have a few choices
But I won't speak on that, hear new voices

[Chorus]
Everyday a star is born x2

[Verse 3]
Main-Sequence, hence, the main event
The majority of every stars life went
To me. Currently, your sun, is me
And if, you see, it burns, brightly
What I do is I act like a nuclear reactor
The size is a factor, but just like an actor
I contract and expand, so understand
If I have more to burn, I burn fast man

[Verse 4]
Red Giant is stomping down now
My star layers start to puff out, pow
And I increase in size, swallowing all
Planets, meteors, get destroyed by this ball
Engulfing everything nearby
This is my stage before my demise
All my energies get gassed up and flies
Then my core remains and I wait and die

[Chorus]
Everyday a star is born x2

[Verse 5]
Your sun will eventually turn to me
White dwarf representing now, B
Just the white hot core left in space
Small in size, but my heat is great
Cooling down slowly, just the furnace
No more gas to work with, worthless
This star will eventually burn out
White dwarf here, too hot and stout

[Verse 6]
But if the star is larger in its appearance
Supernova happens with no interference
The pressure from inside the star
Finally breaks free and I explode very far
Lightyears away but the Earth can see me
Brighter than anything, but only rarely
And in the center of this galactic occurrence
I leave 1 of 2 things without further disturbance

[Chorus]
Everyday a star is born x2

[Verse 7]
One of the supernovas last remnants
A neutral star as its last resident
Call me Neutron, I'm finally balanced
And lifting me up is a cosmic challenge
The densest thing that any one can imagine
I am proof that a supernova happened
Gravity has made me very dense
But even more mass makes it more intense

[Verse 8]
That's when I come in, the final frontier
I baffle scientists, make the quake in fear
My peers of the stars consider me Death
After me there is nothing. Nothing is left
The Black Hole, a portal destructive in nature
The harbinger of doom, I am not a savior
Greater than gravity, check the strategy
I absorb even light: nothing escapes me

[Chorus]
Everyday a star is born x2
Track Name: Apotheosis (Remix) feat. Drewy King
I'm premier whenever I reach your ears
My peers sneer and they try to leer
But I'm a king and they're so in awe of the things
That my rap thing is astounding, pounding, rapping
On the doors of your chamber, I am announcing
My lyrics solid, not lounging or bouncing
I'm no longer the tombs of forgotten lore
Keep my raps in a closet, raven on the door: Lenore
Motivated and lifted to levels higher than giants
I'll have rebels compliant and get pilgrims defiant
Morph from a man to the ranks of exaltation
My explanation can make a wasteland have elevation
I do impossible feats, definitely
I'm the epitome of spitting viciously and readily
Shaking the world, better steady the beat
I crush. Best to be dominantly and heavily
An extra long verse to bless the ears of the listeners
Whisperers claim that I bicker but I beg to differ
I'm sicker and quicker than migrant cherry pickers
Similar to MICR, check it, light it like a wicker
I'm a Matchstick Man with a Zippo inferno flow
Click it and ignite the liquor to a fiery bolero so
I torch and scorch the beats unrecognizable
Burned to the 47th degree: undeniable

[Chorus]
Apotheosis is demonstrated at this moment
Defined as the ideal example, potent
Apotheosis is demonstrated at this moment
Defined as the quintessential, I am it's component

My opponents seem to think my focus is bogus
It's hopeless to convince em otherwise, notice
How these men are below this but are boasted
But they are a plague of locusts about to get toasted
My apotheosis is most ferocious, you should know this
My pen writes lines that are the most dope: it's
Incredible, impeccable, the treble is real special
Biting me is good for you, a dosage of vegetables
I raise the decibels and speak real intelligible
I do it because people count on me like a decimal
I'm at a state of pure knowledge and bliss
It's all in the wrist as I line them up on a grid like a list
On any given track I'm a deity of lyrics and cunning
Observe this song is cross trainers, I'm running
And gunning without shunning in specifics
I hail from the Pacific and vocalize so prolific
Rip it like my city, sure isn't typical
In fact it's real mystical and spiritual mixed so lyrical
Stay on point like icicles and ride like bicycles
I drop dimes and nickels to make it a miracle

[Chorus]
Apotheosis is demonstrated at this moment
Defined as the ideal example, potent
Apotheosis is demonstrated at this moment
Defined as the quintessential, I am it's component

{This part is Drew's part and I don't have the lyrics cause he pretty much on the fly recorded a few freestyles.}
Track Name: Shake the Dust feat. Cassidy Garcia
[Verse 1]
I remember when I let my microphone get dusty
Rusty, rush me, I would not touch b
Felt like the words were dull, the concepts a bore
The metaphors abhor and the content a snore
Got too much hate from one side, some from another
A lot from my mom and a lot from my brothers
Coupled with middle school awkwardness
Though I wanted to author it, they would not pardon it
Self-esteem was asleep in the basement
The lyrics wouldn't fall right back into placement
In a funk, no dunk, flow bunked and stalled
Every night, try to write, but only echoes would call
Not a true voice, never anything real
I was an apparition but I just had to feel
Started being myself, chances I take are a must
Grabbed the mic and I just have to shake the dust

[Chorus]
Lose one, let go to get one
Left one, lose some to win some
There's no need to question it: this is how we're answerin'

Find one, hold on to give one
Right one, win one to lose none
Story of a champion, sorry we are champions
We got one.

[Verse 2]
So I sharpened the pen and I started rehearsing
Started working on my game, this drain I wasn't circling
Read up on my sources, regained some lost forces
Conquered and divided foreign courses
Started digging myself: archeologist
Then I started to blow up, nah, I would demolish it
Living in a sauna, yes I've got to holla
Always got my self a steam, return of the proper
No longer playing their games, re-writing the rules
Measured up past their standards: metric tools
Started feeling cool, embracing my knowledge
Polished like fingernails on that punk rock logic
Not a part of the politics, it's never permanent
So I'm a lyrical liberal and an assertive conservative
Whatever I am, whatever I was
I only got here by shaking off the dust

[Chorus]
Lose one, let go to get one
Left one, lose some to win some
There's no need to question it: this is how we're answerin'

Find one, hold on to give one
Right one, win one to lose none
Story of a champion, sorry we are champions
We got one.

[Verse 3]
So this last one goes out to anyone listening
To all the lovers out there who aren't bickering
This is for the celibate pedophile, the barista with a smile
And tonight she'll have to walk home 17 miles
For the struggling artist on the brink of quitting
It's not the 9th inning, in a few you'll be winning
For the boy who's choosing to be that high school virgin
And that young woman who's out to be a surgeon
Shaking the dust off, even when you've got a bad boss
So posh and gosh, you'll win more than you have lost
For the girl who looks in the mirror and sees a fat enemy
And for everybody who's cursed past obscenities
To the ones that have been called losers with no where to go
This life is your stage and this is your show
My people out there who are dealing with the loneliness
Keep shooting: the worse thing is that you'll only miss
Every flaw is beautiful, every person is unusual
Break out from the cubicle and try to make it musical
We'll give you an hour past your fifteen minutes
In it, in it, win it, win it, diminished: we'll never be finished
A gift from the wise, a lift from demise
A rift from the pride, a drift from the side
Feel that breeze, you already have a gust
Please just trust: just shake the dust

[Chorus]
Lose one, let go to get one
Left one, lose some to win some
There's no need to question it: this is how we're answerin'

Find one, hold on to give one
Right one, win one to lose none
Story of a champion, sorry we are champions
We got one.
Track Name: I Need A Dollar
[Chorus]
I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
And I said I need dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me?

[Verse 1]
I've got my mind on my money, money on my mind
And even with all this obsessing, it's still hard to find
I've got to hustle and grind just for a small dime
Still haven't enough funds to fund my own rhymes
All I need is just another twenty bucks
Buy a microphone, but I'm still out of luck
I need some blank CDs to burn me as an MC
But of course it might leave my pockets empty
I need a booth to record and master my tracks
But to get that money, I wouldn't have clothes on my back
If I could, I would, and then sell it for 100 cents
A penny for my thoughts, but I'm still not spent
I have to get on my hustle, all business
Succeed or fail, it's still just an experiment
I need a dollar, just put it in the hat and leave
I'll busk from day to night just to fund my dreams

[Chorus]
I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
And I said I need dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me?

[Verse 2]
Just one dollar, the first president of America
It's one step closer to the lights action camera
Losing stamina, need to regain my senses
It's hard to do when you're stuck down like benches
Want to get that last quarter, even a few minutes
I'm in it to win it, gotta finish and push it to the limit
But when the time's up I gotta put another quarter in
I've got no extra lives, so one small slip is fin
But until then, I'll continue to write with my pen
Hopefully then me and Ben won't just be friends
I'll just work hard and I'll rock any venue
To get that extra dollar for that value menu
I'll pick up shifts at Freddie's and shop at Dollar Tree
If it means that I can proceed to MC
I won't beg with a sign, I'll work for my rhymes
If you think I'll relax and recline, you must be blind

[Chorus]
I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
And I said I need dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me

[Verse 3]
I'm a yoga instructor the way I stretch dollars
I get it way much longer and way much taller
Call me Mr. Fantastic with my rubberband tactics
I just gotta to practice and above all practice
When it comes to fashion, doesn't impede my passion
Even with hand-me-downs I keep the cameras flashin
I must admit, that I have spent quite stupidly
And truthfully it was better than getting a 100 proof for me
Cause I witness the symptoms of this broken system
People spending money on drugs and alcohol, but listen
I see the rich and poor equally piss it all away
It's all the same toilet the way they spend day to day
So I made a vow to keep my feet on the ground
The only bass I get is from that amplified sound
So with my nouns that pound as the you press play
Donate a dollar, so I can get paid!

[Chorus]
I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
hey hey
And I said I need dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me

[Outro]
Well i don't know if i'm walking on solid ground
Cause everything around me is crumbling down
And all I want is for someone to help me
