Track Name: Good Day
Another morning that came too soon
I was busy in the city dark side of the moon
that bottle tipping it was hitting so smooth
now I gotta go to work but the truth is
I’d rather be rollin’ (rollin)
right back into bed
the sun lit and it’s on my head
can’t remember just what I said
but I know that I’m open (open)
ain’t no closing me down

they tried to keep me asleep but the legend goes on
wake up! and get it going on

(haha
uhh
Good morning America
it’s another one for the good guys)

Okay okay okay (okay)
everything is gonna be okay
got a feeling it’s gonna go my way
today’s gonna be a very good day

the start another morning started way back in the evening
cuz I was up all night from the evening that preceeded
didn’t have a valid reason just the timing of the seasons
see the seasons are the time a man should really get his sleep in
but I told Zeke I would sleep when I die
so I head off to the station with a dream and a smile
said the train to happiness was leaving at 7:30
course I got there at 7:35
but if I hadn’t been late, I couldn’t relate
pain molds us shows us how to reach for the stars
so I’m awake (wake)
and keep a secret I’m a be here tomorrow
rip my ticket skipped the line
I’m waking life inside my mind
rise and shine to the workers and the dreamers
we deserve the world I already know that I’m worth it

(yeah
*coughing*)

they’d tried to keep me asleep but the legend goes on
wake up! and get going on

Okay okay okay (okay)
everything is gonna be okay
got a feeling it’s gonna go my way
today’s gonna be a very good day
Track Name: Old School
(Boy I’ll tell you what these young kids today
they don’t know what it was like
they don’t have any respect for us
they don’t know what it was like for these old timers)

I’m so old school (old-old-old school)
I’m so old school (old-old-old school)

Man I remember back in the day when rappers were rappers
and not a bunch of skateboarders just acting like rappers
or using rap as a platform to get into acting
I guess what I mean to say is today’s rap lacks passion
all this hassle and stress bout trying to cash in your checks
you wanna dazzle impress write a song with actual depth
these hip-hop heads who never listened to Nas?
probably think James Franco’s the original Wizard Of Oz
talking bout bodily harm and artists acting like pharmacists
like you were raised in a barn with all this crop that you’re harvesting
(garbage) a carbon copy of all that’s lewd and disarming
it used to be that stars had to be smart, proven and charming
you young kids can have your twerking and your diddy bop
I kick it old school with the Charleston and the Lindie hop
you cool cats can have your twerking and your diddy bop
I kick it old school, haha

I’m so old school (old-old-old school) (if you don’t like it you can go pound sand!)
I’m so old school (old-old-old school) (why does a five year old kid need a cellular plan?)

I know I’m probably dating myself
but all this new technology is forsaking my health
like what in the world is an Instagram?
you can already post pics on Facebook and Twitter so who gives a damn
speaking of tweeting, I could really be without it
who needs to tweet about it? I’d rather just be about it
see the kids today don’t know how to communicate
I don’t think they’ve ever had a conversation face to face
a generation of tragedy affinity for profanity
fashioned in trashy tapestries “selfies” code word for vanity
(travesty) engaging daily in forms of digital pageantry
savage state of affairs sex tapes are considered masterpiece
you young kids can have your twerking and your diddy bop
I kick it old school with the Charleston and the Lindie hop
you cool cats can have your twerking and your diddy bop
I kick it old school, haha

I’m so old school (old-old-old school) (man these kids are so lucky must be sleeping with the mummies)
I’m so old school (old-old-old school) (all these nincompoop and whippersnapper gosh darn dummies)

hey! hey! hey! hey!

(man these kids today I’ll tell you what they don’t know
we used to walk to school 15 miles uphill both ways
and you.. shoes? forget about it you were lucky to have feet!
and let me tell ya
you needed to know information
you couldn’t go on this world wide intraweb
you had to go to a library and read a book!
you wanted to talk to a friend you had to pick up a phone!
aww I don’t know anymore
I look around and I just see a bunch of
cold tony’s and lame ducks, sideways Susan’s
it makes me sick!)

I’m so old school (old-old-old school) (if you don’t like it you can go pound sand!)
I’m so old school (old-old-old school) (why does a five year old kid need a cellular plan?)
I’m so old school (old-old-old school) (man these kids so lucky must be sleeping with the mummies)
I’m so old school (old-old-old school) (all these nincompoop and whippersnapper gosh darn dummies)
Track Name: Trojan Horse
Hello world yeah I’m here without an invitation
they’ll probably never show me love on the radio station
but I’m not filled with jaded bitterness my heart is free of hatred
I’m just making statements based in righteous indignation
I never claimed to be the greatest
I’m just trying to make it happen man with my admitted limitations
these other rappers man they’re so-so-so-so basic
yeah let’s face it they just want to be famous paid generic and baseless
me I want to be remembered in this industry
as the epitome of creativity originality
won’t ever speak a fallacy cuz true talent’s not determined by your salary or any other technicalities
so let’s drop the dead weight like we’re counting calories
my whole career has been walking on the balance beam
between commercial and the cellar tip
my goal: bring intelligence back to relevance

you’re putting all these words together with thought heart depth
it’s a little too dense to make crowds wanna follow
so put a bunch of words together that don’t make sense
if it don’t make sense then it’s bound to make dollars

Pop tags shop bags cheddar cream cheese money
pop bottles champagne green trees pop molly
got jewels bling ice pushing Phantoms and Ferraris
hot models no tops freak-a-leeks wanna party

This game’s a joke that’s only meant for us to laugh harder
sometimes I look around and think that I’m the last artist
my only wish is take this business and this craft far
put that on my mother father grandmother grandfather
nobody’s perfect but I’m working cuz I’m certain
that I’m earning my stripes in the pursuit of this perfection
my stomach’s turning hunger yearning fire burning
higher learning through these sermons serving views of introspection

you’re putting all these words together with thought heart depth
it’s a little too dense to make crowds wanna follow
so put a bunch of words together that don’t make sense
if it don’t make sense then it’s bound to make dollars

Pop tags shop bags cheddar cream cheese money
pop bottles champagne green trees pop molly
got jewels bling ice pushing Phantoms and Ferraris
hot models no tops freak-a-leeks wanna party

You know sometimes to find the truth man
you gotta look behind the lie
so open your third eye
and read between the lines

Pop tags shop bags cheddar cream cheese money
pop bottles champagne green trees pop molly
got jewels bling ice pushing Phantoms and Ferraris
hot models no tops freak-a-leeks wanna party
