Track Name: Exit 01 - The New Way To Flow
God, if you're there
Can you please hear my prayers
I just want to know if you're aware
Oh, God, if you're there
Can you please hear my prayers
I just want to know if you still care

...be the last to deny
that I'm just an average guy
but each little bird in the sky
is just a little bit freer than I

I'll be the last to deny
that I'm just an average guy
but each little bird in the sky
is just a little bit freer than I

You've got my number but you never call
So I'm assuming that this message reaches no one at all
Hey, are you listening? Hey, are you home?
Clearly uninterested, left one at the tone
I'll admit that I have not been true to Your Word
but in a two-way relationship this is not how it works
Why are you silent? Where is your voice?
Have I been blinded, by the wrong choice

I've been hauling (!!!) just to pay for the rent
While all these cheating mother(!!!) rest in prosperous sin
Where is "The Harvest?" Inevitable loss
Trying my hardest for a useless cause
Hoping to run into Divine Intervention
At least your guidance pointing me towards the right direction
Am I delirious? Made the wrong turn
Am I oblivious, or do I still have much to learn from [God]?

God, if you're there
Daddy, please, listen to my prayers!
Because to me everything seems so unfair
And God, if you're there
Can you please hear my prayers
I just need to know if you still care

(Do you know who you are when you dream?)
(Do you know who you are when you dream?)

I'll be the last to deny
that I'm just an average guy
but each little bird in the sky
is just a little bit freer than I
Track Name: Exit 03 - It then will fade...
(What is a Youth)
(It then will fade)
(So does a youth)
(A rose will bloom)
(it the will fade)
(So does... Cupid, he rules us all)

What is a youth?
Impetuous fire
What is a maid?
Ice and Desire
The world wags on...

What is a youth?
Impetuous fire
What is a maid?
Ice and Desire
The world wags on...
Sweeter than honey, and bitter as gall
Cupid, he rules us all

(What is a Youth)
(It then will fade)
(So does a youth)
(A rose will bloom)
(it the will fade)
(So does... Cupid, he rules us all)

(So does the fairest maid)
Track Name: Exit 04 - Laughing just to keep from Crying [EXPLICIT]
(Guru)
Who's the real criminals, take a look behind the scenes
Corruption and greed is commonplace routine
Guess it pays in many ways to have a few schemes
Shit, I know model citizens that ain't squeaky clean
You got dirty politicians, dirty judges and dirty cops
Everyone's on the take, the hood's filled with dirty blocks
How we gonna save the community, they worse than us
It's like a curse for us, police be the first to bust
Think about it, that RICO shits no fuckin joke
For them the evidence'll vanish in a puff of smoke
I been observant, I'll never be subservient
I guess you get what you deserve in this
From project hallways to courthouse hallways
Some prevail, most see jail, this happens always
Speed on, before you get peed on
All I need is more power

I want more power, I'm gainin more troops
I'm gaining more respect cause I want more juice
The most influential men, got influential friends
And I'mma put the squeeze on all of 'em

I watched y'all get fat, now I want my share
What you ain't got it all? Then I want what's there
The most influential men, got influential friends
And I'mma put the squeeze on all of 'em


(W!SE)

Because I've got no time for the bullshit
Even if you feel me let me hear you say
'Cause in that bullshit, I don't deal
Straight down and straight up for real
Because I've got no time for the bullshit
Even if you feel me let me hear you say
'Cause in that bullshit, I don't deal
Straight down and straight up for real
(So let me hear you say)

Bullshit as usual
We on the Beach of Life (Mellow Beats)
Friends and Lovers, and many others
The rest of us just trying to exist in the beautiful
Bullshit as usual
So check me out on the beach of life (Mellow Beats)
Friends and Lovers, and many others
The rest of us just trying to exist in the beautiful



(AZ)

Visualizing the realism of life in actuality
Fuck who's the baddest, a person's status depends on salary
And my mentality is money-orientated
I'm destined to live the dream for all my peeps who never made it
Cause yeah, we were beginners in the hood as 5 Percenters
But something must've got in us cause all of us turned to sinners
Now some rest in peace and some are sittin' in San Quentin
Others such as myself are trying to carry on tradition
Keeping this Schweppervescent street ghetto essence inside us
Cause it provides us with the proper insight to guide us
Even though, we know somehow we all gotta go
But as long as we leaving thievin'
We'll be leavin' with some kind of dough, so
Until that day we expire and turn to vapors
Me and my capers, will be somewhere stackin' plenty papers
Keeping it real, packing steel, getting high
Cause life's a bitch and then you die

Life's a bitch and then you die
That's why we get high
Cause you never know when you're gonna go

Life's a bitch and then you die
That's why we puff lye
Cause you never know when you're gonna go

Life's a bitch and then you die
That's why we get high
Cause you never know when you're gonna go

Life's a bitch and then you die
That's why we puff lye

Because I've got no time for the bullshit

'Cause in that bullshit, I don't deal
Straight down and straight up for real

Because I've got no time for the bullshit (Come on)
Even if you feel me let me hear you say (COME ON!)
'Cause in that bullshit, I don't deal
Straight down and straight up for real
Because I've got no time for the bullshit (Come on)

The rest of us just trying to exist in the beautiful
Bullshit as usual

Friends and Lovers, and many others
'Cause no one really cares to exist until a funeral

So check me out on the beach of life
'Cause no one really cares to exist until a funeral
So check me out on the beach of life

(For my opening line...)
(I'm not trying to indicate my state of mind)
(to turn you on...)
(I tell you that I'm laughing just to keep from crying)
Track Name: Exit 05 - Battlecry
(W!SE)

With a mind that's sharper than the edge of a samurai sword
his ultimate reward was honor, not awards
way too enlightened for the limelight's prize
of respect in the eyes of those focused upon one dialect
Heck no! Never was speechless
just fluent in the language of credence
tell it like it is with a beat full of order
amidst the chaotic business heat as the spark gets colder

He understood within his footseps something would arise where his plant once stood in
without a podium, stand, soapbox, or a sit in
he just rose above and said "listen to this"
The Tree has gone but the fruit remains
in hearts of the cubs that continue to carry his name
and so we never, ever farm his story in vain
we just cultive his message by hitting replay, all day, so let me hear you say


(Sir J and Shing02)

Sunset, sunrise
Some fade, some shine in the midst of the mortified
Some fight, some bleed
Some run to go hide, while others mobilize

That's right, sometimes
some laugh, some lie just to keep their dreams privatized
some fight, some bleed
Some ball it all up and keep it trapped inside

Some days, some nights
some choose to lay down their life as a sacrifice
Some fight, some bleed
to sum it all up: some end up immortalized

Some days, some nights
some live, some die in the way of the samurai
some fight, some bleed
Sun up to Sun down: The Sons of the...


(W!SE)

You better look to the air around him
an aura surrounding them like the air above a mountain
but no doubt, man of the hour
heir apparent gon' show the crowd with raw power
his shadow alone towers over the cowards
who would rather stay at home crying out it's now or
Never, ever, ever again looking back
love some, trust none, help all, but NEVER FORGET that

to always set sail to the sunset
no second guessing, 3 2 1, rock the mic: testing!
7 8 9, sign of the times, recognize
instinctively steer your ship through the wild side
fire all cannons, boy meets world
became a man and cease the day and night
earn the girl's hand in marriage, grand royalty
conquer the barren lands of barbarians who never could
care less about the rest of their plight

(Shing02)

Sharp like an edge of a samurai sword
The mental blade cut through flesh and bone
Though my mind's at peace, the world out of order
Missing the inner heat, life gets colder
Oh yes, I have to find my path
No less, walk on earth, water and fire
The elements compose a magnum opus
My modus operandi is amalgam steel packed tight in micro
Chip on my armor a sign of all-pro
The ultimate reward is honor not awards
At odds with the times in wars with no Lords, a Freelancer
A battle cry of a hawk make a dove fly and a tear dry
Wonder why a lone wolf don't run with a clan
Only trust your instincts and be one with the...


(The plan)
(The plan)


(Shing02)

Some days, Some nights
Some live, Some die
in the way of the Samurai
Some fight, Some bleed
Sun up to Sun down
The Sons of a battle cry

Some days, Some nights
Some live, Some die
in the name of the Samurai
Some fight, Some bleed
Sun up to Sun down
The Sons of a battle cry
Track Name: Exit 06 - Soulful Mode (The Show must go on)
Life, love
Dance, sing
No war
Stay Free
We can live
YES!

(And the beat goes...)

Life, love

No war
Stay Free
We can live
YES!


Yo there ain't no finales 'cause the music never ends
Once a melody quits another one begins
and that's the way it works in The Song of Life
we balancing the good beats with the chords of strife
Everybody's gonna get a slice of the pie
15 minutes of fame in the light
play that solo with all of your might
'cause soon you're gonna have to pass the mic
that's why it's critical to work together
paying homage to the preceding measures
always gotta respect your elders
even if some of them played a out of tune for a while
Just smile, like a child, 'cause the Little Drummer Boy never goes out of style
the Youth go with everything, just like Guile
blizzards, showers, any kind of weather

That's why every kind of scale is needed
in preparation for when the beat is tweaking
the rhyme scheme within the verses
sometimes A-B-A-B won't always work it
J. Frank said "adversary translates to 'add another verse to me' "
Right now you hate your enemies, but one day you'll thank them for their countermelody
it doesn't make sense from where you're sitting
but don't you ever stop listening
keep your ears in tune with mine
and the harmony will keep us in due time
'cause in the end that's all She wrote
millions of notes, but One Tempo
Mother Nature wants us to row our boat in sync with One Tempo
(hit it)

Life, love
Dance, sing
No war
Stay Free
We can live
YES!

(And the beat goes...)

Life, love
Dance, sing
No war
Stay Free
We can live
YES!

(Put your hands in the air, say...)
(Let's boogie)


How many drums fell off of the beat
take a rest, young one, until the next piece
it'd be a life if I told you that I never thought of death
and my friends, we're the last ones left (and the beat goes...)
yeah, it goes on and on
but we can't treat the dead as personal gods
they played their part in The Song, but in the end (The Show must go on)
So we learn their part, press rewind
We mimic their art, and then we press Rewind
Now we've got to start, keep our mentors in our heart
in our eyes our influences are like stars
but they could only guide us this far

So pick up your guitars, don't stop
strumming even if you hit Mars
Live fearless, away from the box,
out of this world, all doors unlocked
If you've mastered all keys of your city
move on to the national ones
if you've learned the hymns of your country
move on to the global ones
Open your ears, don't ever be deaf
I'm speaking Metaphorically my Friends
don't tune out style differences
we need to freaking jam to the solar system
It's true, we mostly have a constant tempo
banging throughout the galaxy
but no individual signature lick
reverberates universally

Come (Come) Come with me
To (To) the Listening Tree
analyze closely the ideal similarities
'cause that's music theory's biggest secret in history
mathematically, it's all just a big old loop on repeat
That's why the deceased heart beats in you and flow in me
we ARE family, this pattern flows through everybody's bloodstream
that's why we give "Beat" to one another
make love to one another
Spread beats, not war

'cause In the face of death we realize
the insignificance of genocide
the mass killing of melodic lives,
a disturbance in the force felt worldwide
We're running out of time
put the "BS as usual" aside
The last movement is among us
everybody gather 'round for the Chorus...

yeah, and the beat goes



Life, love
Dance, sing
No war
Stay Free
We can live
YES!
(And the beat goes...)
(The show must go on...)


Those of you, how who lost some
this is for you, and now you've found one
Those of you, how you lost one
this is for you, and now you've found one


Life, love
Dance, sing
No war
You better Stay Free
We can live
YES!
(And the beat goes...)

Life, love
Dance, sing
No war
You better Stay Free
We can live
YES!
(And the beat goes on...)


Life, love
Dance, sing
No war
Stay
It hurts to let go
(The show must go on..)

Life, love
Dance, sing
No war
Stay
It hurts to let go
(And the beat goes...)
