Track Name: Feel Me
Feel Me

What’s new? Shit I can’t call it.
But it’s flowing – Fluid like alcoholics.
Guess so – Crazy stupid like Jethro.
Games getting dumber, but we getting smarter;
You need us like H20 & water…
Cold as agua from the arctic, leave a mark like it’s shark-bit.
Oh shit, who’s this? Serve it out crisp, like a dish from Ruth Chris.
We bout to takeoff, not a plane but a spaceship.
Sky’s the limit – We adjacent, to the top we facing…
Paper & Pussy chasing keeps my heart racing;
Poetry, Power, & Pistols ..
The most beautiful, most brutal, most lethal.
We Anomalies – even wit an abacus, we still past the average (a-vuh-rage).
You will be adding us, you will not be subtracting us;
Talk that shit we back it up, crazy just like angel-dust,
Rap is just a game to us – competition looking weak, dog that’s so strange to us.
We toxic like dioxin, & that be so dangerous,
Hall of fame baby, I swear you will be framing us.
I be back & forth wit it mane, on and off again;
When I’m off I’m hardly on, and when I’m on it’s never wrong.
Subjective, as the preference of your favorite song.
Please believe, that I wear this music shit up on my sleeve,
What I’m bringing you’s a gift, call it Christmas Eve.
The game’s in need, so we could never leave.
Not before we arrive at least – fashionably late;
We were chilling in bliss, then we hopped in the abyss like thissssss…
So what we back for? – We got some more work to do.
When you keep moving, it’s so hard to be comfortable,
And when you standing still, that’s when everybody come for you.
Gotta know how to get it, gotta know how to split it;
Danny Ocean & Rusty, you know we bout to get it.
The stakes is high – it’s in the air, I can feel it.
Crap table in Vegas, you know we bout to win it.
The house about to lose, and we about to prove…
That everything we said’s, the God’s honest truth,
So before we leave, please believe…We still Thick as Thieves.

That right…we ain’t playing no fuckin’ games.
It’s 2 Dash Tone, & Audio Games (ha!).
The only thing we playing wit is this music.
I can feel it, I see all the angles. So lets go ahead and make it happen.
Fuck making up some dumb shit, we making history.
If you can rap your head around that, then you can vibe wit us.
Track Name: You Only Get One (feat. Bee West & Killa T)
You Only Get One

Hook
I make em’ say ugh, cuz they bout to go dumb.
Trying to get the cake, then I gotta get the crumbs.
Sometime the pain hurt – but fuck it, I’m numb.
No consequence, cuz fuck it I’m young.
You gotta live life, and you only get one (2x),
You gotta live life…you gotta live life, and you only get, get …

Verse 1
I’m just living, I’m just living – going through the motions.
Lotta bullshit, gotta shut-up the commotion.
Deeper than the ocean, a sea of emotion;
Throw me a rope, ion know how I’m floating…
Coasting – I’m just looking for a potion,
Trying to find an elixir, to get a quick fix-up.
But everything’s mixed up, so I can’t dis-cuss,
Too much distance, and too much distrust.
Hiding in the shadows like the love of a mistress;
But ima be aight – cuz it’ll come to light.
And soon as it’s night, that’s when I come to life.
So just let me go – like a green light.
Trying to get the team right, yea we making moves.
Appearance is a must, it’s all show and prove.
My next move’ll be the best move…so true.
Everything I do, just for you.
Cuz it’s only one life, it’s no take-2
Said it’s only one life, and it’s no take-2.
And I’m strong as steel, so they won’t break 2;
And I never get broke, I just get breakthroughs.
As I’m spitting the blues over 1’s & 2’s
And make ya head-nod, just like you dancing 2;
Walk a mile with me, you aint got the shoe’s,
I’m making headlines, just like the evening news.

Hook
It’s another day, and it’s another dolla.
Got a dolla and a dream, but I still go farther.
Just my ambition, so Ima go harder.
No consequence, cuz fuck it I’m young.
You gotta live life & you only get one.
Say you gotta live life & you only get one.
You gotta live life…you gotta live life, and you only get, get …

Verse 2
So I’m cooling back and reminiscing, bout opportunities given,
Living with the feeling, that start as commonly too specific.
Gifted I be hoping, that every hour that’s open will see.
The definition of living pushed to the max – envy.
And it’s never close, so probably if ever thinking you stop me,
Cuz I’m coming Kamikaze in every part of ya body,
So ladee-dadee to move the party,
I be chilling with the women that do pilates and do the naughty.
Zoom … fly, by, to the masses. And move, sky, high, with a passion,
Of a someone, living they life like it’s no other one.
Troublesome … to many & others considered.
Epito-mized, rise, look in they eyes.
Gimme sort of the clearance, appearance so give me your 5.
Out of the 5, not a surprise, I got a good vibe.
Which makes it sort of grill em’ just like a massage.

Hook
I make em’ say um, cuz they bout to go dumb.
Trying to get the cake, then I gotta get the crumbs.
Sometime the pain hurt – but fuck it, I’m numb.
No consequence, cuz fuck it I’m young.
You gotta live life, and you only get one (2x),
You gotta live life…you gotta live life, and you only get, get …

Verse 3
I gotta get it, you blinded by politicians,
I want you to stop & listen, I’m grinding I’m on a mission.
It’s my ambition, of squishing they competition,
You wishing you could be winning, but really you are just sitting.
Doing nothing, but watching me proving something.
Your crew is stuntin’, oh really, but are you buzzing?
Now you wasn’t & never will.
To get a deal, gotta get off ya ass, and not to mention get better skills.
Doesn’t matter if you a rapper or a doctor, you gotta believe that nobody can stop us.
Call it obnoxious, or whatever you please, got a veteran steez to de-sever the beast.
My life, Ima do it while pursuing my dream – If you waste it, you a waste of a seed.
You only get one – you don’t want to end up another victim, spittin’ to the kickdrum …

Hook
It’s another day, and it’s another dolla.
Got a dolla and a dream, but I still go farther.
Just my ambition, so Ima go harder.
No consequence, cuz fuck it I’m young.
You gotta live life & you only get one.
Say you gotta live life & you only get one.
You gotta live life…you gotta live life, and you only get, get …
Track Name: Out The Mind
Out The Mind

I’m out the mind .. each and every time (yea)
And when a nigga rhyme, im gon blow ya mind.
Can’t take the flow, cuz yea that’s mine
Put me in the dark, yea I’m gon shine;
I bet im gonna light up, then I’m gonna blow-up.
All I do is spit, not really, I throw-up.
I’m on my bulimic .. tell me have you seen it?
Killed another beat, so I gotta leave the scene quick.
I do it like a seamstress; everything is seamless.
Can't do it by myself, so no im not team less.
And no I don't smoke, but if I did it would be seedless.
I’m trying to spit that shit, that's gon get my seeds rich.
So I stay writing - so I stay reciting;
It’s better things to come, and it's so exciting.
So enticing - im so enamored. Loving the thoughts of all the glitz and glamour.
All the flashing cameras, all the awards.
Fuck being local I want a world tour.
So what's it all for ? Man I gotta live.
And I give you my soul, that's the best there is.
And if the girls a dime? Then I give her my kids.
Not a real baby, but she get it on her lips.
And if she like that shit, then shit take a sip.
I like them honey-dips, and they just like my chips.
Trying to get cheese and my bread, nut I just want head.
So girl go ahead, cuz I just want some head.
But you can come first like the chicken or the egg,
Heard what I said ? - I’m dope as sudafed.
Road to riches, I’m just trying to get fed.
Bakers dozen baby, I’m just trying to get bread.
Following my dreams, and strange as it seems:
The fact they coming true is the strangest of things.
Not much to do, just talk and listen
Polish up the flow, make sure that bitch glisten.
Make sure it's shinin', rare as a black diamond.
It’s a gift and curse, when I spit my verse.
Bodying beats, bring out the Hearst.
My joy, my pain, brings out the worst.
Want it in the worst way, whatever works,
Appetite for destruction, now bring out dessert ..

Yea, it’s 2 Dash Tone (don’t forget the Dash).
That’s what they call me – ugh, it’s 2-Dash-Tone.
And when you’re off, we can get it on, cuz,
Cuz – it’s 2-Dash-Tone. I said it’s 2-Dash-Tone.
Yea … You know the name.
Track Name: Paradise II
Paradise II

Verse 1
Trying to break out the box, but I swear it’s hard.
Gotta play my hand, but I don’t like my cards.
Cuz even when I’m up, I swear I’m falling off…
And everything I touch, it just dissolves.
And nothing feels right, and everything is wrong.
And then you look up, and everything is gone.
Story of my life … it’s the same song.

Chorus
I think it’s trouble … in paradise.
A storm is brewing … but the weather’s nice.
But that’s just the calm, right before the storm,
And then you look up, and everything is gone.
It’s a different day, but the same song…
But it’s bizarre, cuz something feels wrong.
I’m trying to be strong … trying to be strong.
Tell me what’s going o-on, on.

Verse 2
I’m feeling out of sorts, in all sort of a mess.
Man & I swear life’s one big test.
And right now I’m failing, right now I’m failing.
Dear Lord I’m falling, need you to catch me.
Need you to lead me, because I can’t see past,
Everything I wanted so bad, and I’m caught up in the game, with what I never had.
And what I could attain, here we go again.

Chorus
I think it’s trouble … in paradise.
A storm is brewing … but the weather’s nice.
But that’s just the calm, right before the storm,
And then you look up, and everything is gone.
It’s a different day, but the same song…
But it’s bizarre, cuz something feels wrong.
I’m trying to be strong … trying to be strong.
Tell me what’s going o-on, on.

Verse 3
So many distractions, to them I’m attracted.
But what’s the attraction? Cuz it’s just a fraction,
Of everything that matters, and everything that’s real.
Swimming in the water, but I aint got no gills.
Not a care in the world, like I aint got no bills.
I got deep wounds, and that may never heal.
The pain runs deep, sometime that’s all I feel.
So I’m just trying to stay, where everything is real…

Chorus
I think it’s trouble … in paradise.
A storm is brewing … but the weather’s nice.
But that’s just the calm, right before the storm,
And then you look up, and everything is gone.
It’s a different day, but the same song…
But it’s bizarre, cuz something feels wrong.
I’m trying to be strong … trying to be strong.
Tell me what’s going o-on, on.

Me & my homie, that’s all I really need.
Deep up in this bitch, and we still Thick As Thieves.
But doing different things, not quite the same.
Cuz tell me what’s a game, if you don’t ever change.
Caught in a rage, and a long daze,
But it’s bizarre, cuz something feels wrong.
I’m trying to be strong … trying to be strong.
Tell me what’s going o-on, on.
Track Name: Come Around
Come Around

To rise to the action … is to be Poetry in Motion.
To be greater than you are – So, Ima be just that.
Aint nothing to do but do it … let’s go.

Verse 1
No concept, to conceptualize – simply, I just visualize,
You can see the scenes in my eyes.
It should come as no surprise, there’s a movie in my mind,
With that cinematic flow, it’s action every time.
So sharp, I could yell cut after every line;
Feel fine, still breathing … still believing.
Evolution is a must, I change with the seasons;
Life’s hard, but laughing easy, please believe me.
I’m reminiscing, cuz things are different, tell me what happened.
Look around, like I’m the only one that’s rapping.
I kept it going, I kept it moving…
It got hard 4 me too, I just kept doing…
Not out, had to go through it.
Now I don graduated, everything’s elevated, moving like escalators,
Man I don fucking made it – well not quite, but I’m still writing ..
Aight then.

Chorus
Every time it come around, I can feel the sound.
Everybody looking round, it’s about to go down.
Like who, where, what happened?
It’s all movement – it plays out like a movie…
(repeat 2x)

Verse 2
No time to think – it’s overrated & underestimated.
Life is a joy, but seldom celebrated,
In my cerebellum, there’s a truth serum.
I aint lying, I aint dying – I don’t do drugs, but I’m flying,
Thru this music like an eagle, just soaring while they snoring.
We been scoring, but you was sleeping on it.
Get up on yo opponents, whoever can get it is whoever want it – we on it.
Young, gifted, & dangerous, I swear I turn a pen into a weapon.
Meet ya maker – write a letter, send you to heaven.
In my arsenal is arsenic, sick when I spit – it comes out like mucus.
Battering the beat, I’m abusive. It better fight back, cuz I like that.
That’s real rap. But real talk – Where ya heart at?
If you claiming that ya heartless, you got nothing to give,
And last time I checked, you need that to live.

Chorus
Every time it come around, I can feel the sound.
Everybody looking round, it’s about to go down.
Like who, where, what happened?
It’s all movement – it plays out like a movie…
(repeat 2x)

Verse 3
What’s life, what’s living? Thoughts tripping, mind-scattered, soul-splattered.
Feeling strange – looking at your friends & they don’t look the same.
Like something changed – Got my suspicions, they as fake as apparitions.
I’m moving, so it’s a movement like abolition.
I’m trying to free my mind, off & on,
Even when I’m off I’m on the grind – So grandiose my approach, to this arena.
Got me moving graceful like a ballerina.
It’s all movement, all balance – all improvement, & pure talent.
Temper-tantrum on the track, but I aint acting childish.
It’s absurd, I’m mentally disturbed.
The flow is so nice, I got Webster looking up my words.
Wit my dick in your ear – so I can fuck what you heard.
No lubrication, still move a whole nation.
I just fight against the friction, telling truth, it’s no fiction.
It was written in the scrolls, and so the story’s being told.
Track Name: Mo' Better Blues
Mo’ Better Blues
Well anyway, we’re gonna do a tune called Mo’ Better Blues.

Verse 1
Yea – nothing to prove, but Mo’ Better Blues…
A little bit of me, but it’s more you.
I whisper sweet nothings, do you like what you hear?
Or do you just like that I’m spitting in ya ear?
I’m getting it in gear, yea my missions clear.
Couldn’t come in the front, so I’m coming in the rear.
Get it? Cool, you wit it? We can be gone,
I can take you, back to home.
And when I see you, you put me in my zone,
Like damn – I aint know you had it like that;
I know where it is, let me see where it’s at,
Said I know where it is, let me see where it’s at.
Round of applause, can you make that thing clap?
I like it like that, when you tense up ya back.
It’s just me & you, so what you wanna do?
Tell me that you like that, and I’ll be right back
It’s 2!

Hook
You can find me in the lounge, where it goes down,
Talking my shit, spitting my sound.
Me & Audio Games, that’s how it goes down,
We got the fly girls, and it goes down.
(repeat 2x)

Come on baby girl – It gets mo’ better.
You wit whatever huh? – It gets mo’ better.
You say you getting wetter? – It gets mo’ better.
Never say never – It gets mo’ better.
Long as we together – It gets mo’ better.
You say feelin' it?? – It gets mo’ better.
Yea girl, it gets mo’ better … yea girl, it gets mo’ better.

Verse 2
The mo’ better, means that it gets mo’ wetter.
And it gets mo’ better if you down wit whatever.
Yea, you like it like that? Me too, and we did take 1, so it’s on to take 2…
Dash Tone’s what they call me – I must do it right, cuz they always calling.
From 10pm, until the early morning.
As she roll over in my bed & she’s yawning. Damnnnn.
Long as we together, it gets mo’ better.
And when it gets wetter, it gets mo’ better.
That’s what I always tell her, and she love to listen.
Out the shower dripping, and her body glisten.
I could have my way, but with her permission,
And the foreplay is just intermission;
Special attention? Thought that I should mention,
Don’t be a stranger, kiss him like you missed him.

(repeat hook)
Track Name: Dreamers (feat. Slick 64)
Dreamers

Verse 1
As I’m dreaming don’t wake me, Lord don’t forsake me.
Hardy-har har, cuz he aint bring me this far…
For nothin, for nothing…? Nah it was for something.
So Ima keep bumping, and Ima keep stunting.
Searching for the answer, so Ima keep hunting.
And Ima keep dreaming…I’m feeling so aliiiiive.
Inside of my mind, I could never die,
And I swear I’m gon fly, yea I will, yea I will.
And I swear that I can rap, it’s some kill, it’s some kill.
A little bit of skill, and a little bit of luck.
Fluid as the flow, so I’m never getting stuck.
And never say never, until it’s never enough.
Believe what you can’t see, yea it’s a must.
Always know the direction, yea we headed up…

Verse 2
My hands is empty, and my pockets 2.
Still my brain’s full of dreams, steaming like I got the flu.
Where we going 2? Mane I never know…
But it don’t matter, as long as we know where we from;
As for me, born in France stayed in Germany,
Back in MLV, maybe soon down in NYC.
I’m unpredictable…just like my flow,
Cuz I can switch it up – [ugh] here we go.
I’m so 6-4, I’m 8 squared – Just like you.
And when I look in the mirror, I see you times 2.
Put us together and we make our sweetest dreams come true;
It feels like re-birth…a sense of déjà vu.
I make em say “jà vu”, he do it like MVA.
Do em like EA Sports – it’s in the game.
I’m just a dreamer, I dream my life away,
Like the lead-singer of the black Jewish holiday.

Verse 3
As I’m dreaming don’t wake me, Lord don’t forsake me.
Hardy-har har, cuz he aint bring me this far…
For nothin, for nothing…? Nah it was for something.
So Ima keep bumping, and Ima keep stunting.
Searching for the answer, so Ima keep hunting.
And Ima keep dreaming…I’m feeling so aliiiiive.
Inside of my mind, I could never die,
And I swear I’m gon fly, yea I will, yea I will.
And I swear that I can rap, it’s some kill, it’s some kill.
It’s some kill ... Yea, for real.
I wonder when you see me will you recognize me?
Cuz life is funny, sometimes hypnotizing:
The change re-arranged some things – distorting vision.
So I don’t look the same…plus you looking different too.
Now we both are looking blue, cuz we’re wondering what happened to the person that we knew.
Is it all a dream? Tell me is it true – I’m squinting my eyes, trying to see if it is really you.
Cuz you don’t look the same, and that mean I don changed.
And yea I done some things … I dun done some things.
But look at me like that – cuz I was living mane.
Free as a bird, or free as the wind.
Cuz I done got comfy, in my own skin.
And I was just living, no-kidding, no-worries.
Just a bunch of stories, with plenty lessons learned.
It was my turn, stepped up I took it.
Couldn’t be on the sideline looking.
No way José, cuz my words aint the only thing that play.
It’s beautiful, it’s charming, it’s so cinematic.
In love with life baby, and it’s so romantic.
X’s & O’s no need to panic – I got ya,
Put ya trust in me just like the doctor.
And we can play doctor. You can be the patient, or you can be the nurse,
Cuz soon as you undress, it’s sweeter than dessert.
Love is pain baby, but I really love the hurt (yea).
Never say never, it’s never enough.
Never say never, it’s never enough … yea.
Track Name: My Sun
My Sun

Even Superman got his kryptonite, I aint invincible.
Fall down 5, get up 6 – that’s the principal.
Vivid imagery, I’m in a dream or so it seems.
Distraction does occur, cuz I’m chasing the finer things.
Like a gold-digging broad, looking for diamond rings.
And with that said, I lost my sight once again.
Need to free myself from desire…Lord knows I try,
But everything I want’s buried so deep inside.
Gotta excavate it, impatient – wit a sick flow, something like a patient.
Wonder where it take me…been talking to fate, hope she date me;
Cuz then I’ll have a date with destiny.
When I’m gone cry twice, and burn whatever’s left of me.
My music live forever, that means I live forever.
And shit is getting real, I swear it’s now or never;
My attitude’s whatever, my enemy’s are clever.
And they just want to pull me down, just like a lever.
Why? Iono know, no telling. Prolly cuz they mad I got bars like a felon…
And heat like a arsonist – you don’t want no parts of this;
I got flames and they running in my membrane,
Third degree burns anytime I get a migraine – insane.
Beat stay dropping, rhymes stay popping.
Can’t make it simpler – no other option.
I used to get mad cuz they aint hear my metaphors;
But now I come to terms with certain limitations.
The world can catch on later, but I won’t be waiting.
Patience is a virtue, they know not what they do.
And ignorance is bliss, so I can’t be mad at you.
But dog I feel fine – the sun’s gone shine.
And please believe me: That ima get mine.
Whatever that mean – whatever that bring…
I promise to be ready, my content will be heavy;
I just need you to promise, that you won’t forget me.
Fraid of being forgotten, and so I’m lamenting…
Everything is sadness, try not to see the tragic.
It’s my manuscripts & memoirs, chilling by my armoire.
Collection of my thoughts, that comprise my armor;
Analytical, philosophical, plus spiritual;
Cuz I catch the holy-ghost whenever I get lyrical.
Still alive and breathing – thank God it’s a miracle.
My family will be eating, long before I’m leaving.
Life’s a chess game, so a nigga always scheming;
Running, running, running…chasing away demons.
Addicted to my passion, a nigga always fiendin’,
It’s fire in my mind, and I can hear em’ screaming.
Just shut the voices up, cuz I can hear em screaming;
Don’t want to hear them talking, don’t want to hear them chatting.
Just wanna hear them rapping, ensconced in the rapture.
The moments are so beautiful, and I just wanna capture.
Everything grows – Everything evolves.
Just remember the essence, right before it dissolves.
Cuz in the blink of an eye, everything is gone.
Then you asking what happened – but by then it’s too late.
Maybe the aftermath, of destiny or fate.
So when it’s all said & done, I’ll probably have a laugh.
Just remember the name, 2 Dash on the epitaph.
It’s 2.
Track Name: A Million (feat. Slick 64)
A Million
You ever make a buck yourself? – No, but I have plans.
Mission? – To liberate millions of dollars.

Verse 1
Writing more of my thoughts, to be immortalized in rhymes.
That mean I live forever, forever? Yea.
So when Im gone, don’t be no stressing,
Cuz you can keep my records, you can keep my records.
A gift that’s so perfect, almost like it’s sent from Heaven.
And I just be thinking: why they listening to what I’m thinking?
But then I know why, so I say never mind,
The sun is coming up, so it’s time for the grind.

Hook
I dream in 3D, my thoughts are brilliant.
Rising like the sun in the morning, resilient.
You feel it? Yea I got that feeling.
Like I hit the lotto & I’m bout to make a killing.
Lord willing, before I die I reach a million (2x)
Lord willing – Before I die I reach a…
Before I die I reach a… Before I die, I reach a … million.

Verse 2
I gotta get that bankroll. First year, a milly. Second, a multiple.
What did you expect if I had more? I would have already had one mad yo.
Provide my fam with a house, pool & Lambo.
Young Sinatra, I’m an artist, and I’m Frank so – all those who act weird forget the cash flow.
Yall can simply gon head & kiss my asshole.
Dogs & bitches start circling all around me aint it curious, baby I’m a star – ugh, I’m being Sirius.
Really it’s, more than just words, it’s a business.
But how you wanna make it sound real, if you aint feeling it? – Living it.
It’s ambition & patience. My dreams are full of green numbers, like in the Matrix.
5 days preparation & day 6, you gotta hit the concrete in order to make it – it’s ya mane Slick.

Hook
I dream in 3D, my thoughts are brilliant.
Rising like the sun in the morning, resilient.
You feel it? Yea I got that feeling.
Like I hit the lotto & I’m bout to make a killing.
Lord willing, before I die I reach a million (2x)
Lord willing – Before I die I reach a…
Before I die I reach a… Before I die, I reach a … million.

Verse 3
Get ya money – Life’s short, the rap game’s petite.
Everybody want a plate, but it’s not enough to eat.
All up in my LP, you don’t even know the beat.
But you put it on the streets, and I bet you it’s some heat.
Refreshing, like sex in between the sheets with a bomb-freak,
Who just trying to do her thing – I feel her mane.
I’m working the game, like she working the next one.
Trying to get shit to change, cuz too much shit is strange.
I’m hearing fame, it’s calling my name.
But soon as I answer, it all starts to fade…
And the more I chase, the more it goes away.
Trying not to go astray, I think I need to pray.
Seduced by the glamour, driven by the allure,
Trying as best I can, to keep the flow pure.
But soon as I say enough, is when I need more.
So that’s what it is, I know what I’m here for…

Someday I’ll have me a Penthouse. Stacks and stacks, of gold & green.
It is all a state of mind – whether or not you find, that place down there, or Heaven.
But in the meantime …
Track Name: Thick As Thieves
Thick As Thieves
Ugh-huh, it’s the real.
So I’m just gonna talk – Like this …

Of all the crazy ideas I could conceive,
Who would ever believe, we would be Thick As Thieves.
Hanging like sleeves (yea), cooler than a breeze (yea),
Music & money supply me everything I need.
Im lifted already .. why the fuck I need weed ?
Good luck like the 3rd sneeze, I think shits working.
Cuz plans coming together, like the end of separation.
And the picture I been painting’s revealing a destination.
I wrote my own fate, I just gotta have patience.
But I hate the waiting (yea), but I hate the waiting.
Oh well, now im in it .. time for the scrimmage;
Its brunch time baby but im waiting on the dinner;
Waiting on the feast, to get to it im a beast.
Fermenting like yeast, as im cementing these beats.
Cementing these moments, so that they live forever,
Its life baby .. and I don’t wanna let it go,
And its getting good, so im trying to burn slow, ya know ?
Im hot like a thermal – Plus they say I’m getting better,
But I been knew that … (uh-huh), so I’m like whatever.
Another thing to do, another day in bloom,
Looking towards the sky, as I see my dreams loom
Metamorphosis - butter flies & cocoons.
It’s coming real soon, believe that is a promise.
Neva lied about the real, so u know I’m being honest.
Representing the real niggas that I know.
Who may have fell off, or let this rap shit go.
Yea you may have stopped, but I got your heart.
And with that said you all deserve a shot:
So what up E - Gutta & LE.
Cant forget about the King, that’s D.R.E.
Cant forget about Kadi, my right hand guy.
Separated by time, divided by distance.
Don’t see em’ where I’m at, guess they aint have my persistence.
And that aint all bad, but it aint all good.
Just the way things are, or rather how I see it.
Then some more time passed time passed,
Made a break with the past,
Forgot about 2-Tone, and become 2 Dash.
Then shit started clicking - Couldn’t planned it any better.
Met Eric in ’07, and we started The Remedy.
Pooling talents together, doing everything we knew.
But he left me after that - felt bad, yea I knew.
Then came 2.0, but it wasn’t really me.
Then after its release, questioned who I really be.
Took a 2 year hiatus, studio wasn’t flowing.
I felt too stagnant like I wasn’t growing.
Lights dim as hell, I don’t think that I’m glowing.
So the towel Ima throw in, good ride my friend.
But like a love I came back, missed it in fact.
Plus it’s what I do best – yea a nigga rap.
Audio sent some tracks – yea it was some beats,
But I pushed it to the side, cuz I aint know it was heat.
Wanted to do a project, I’m like cool, I’m down.
But little did I know, we would make our make our sound.
Little did I know we would stand our own ground,
And build a foundation, so that we could keep building .
Make moves we dare, trying to get there.
truly unique, cuz something like this rare.
Taking nothing for granted, I only see the goal.
Cuz I know that it’s written, somewhere on a scroll.
I think I’m bleeding, nah shit is just flowing.
Feeling a change now, I think that I’m growing.
All I got is my thoughts, my heart & a dream.
Ideas in my head, full of crazy schemes.
Sometimes I don’t know what’s a lie, and don’t know what is true.
Don’t know what to think, and don’t know what to do.
But one thing remains, so true indeed,
Keeping me intact, with everything I need:
Until im dead and gone, and my last blood bleeds,
Please believe, we still Thick as Thieves.

We still Thick As Thieves, please believe we still Thick As Thieves.
Till’ I’m dead and gone, and my last blood bleeds, we still Thick As … Thieves.
