Track Name: California
(Chorus)
Girl you know you got it goin' on,
Shakin' like that to this song,
Baby you know that you can't go wrong,
I can get you off, I can get you, I can get you off
California’s got it goin' on,
Shakin' like that to this song,
Baby you know that you can't go wrong,
I can get you off, I can get you, I can get you off.
(Verse 1)
Took her to the scene, show her what I mean,
She follow the music, near me where she wanna be.
Took her to my spot, show her what I got,
After said and done you know I got her kickin' rocks.
Smokin' on them trees, like it ain't no thing,
Liquored up for days until my liver spittin' green.
The city's gettin' hot, we up there on the top,
And when we take it over, know we got to let it drop.
(Chorus)
(Verse 2)
Taken from the womb, taken by the streets,
If I could live it over, I would probably repeat.
Love ain't what I got, but love is what I need,
And you just might be foolish if you're thinking it's for free.
I take that to my tomb, I take that to my sleep,
I'm never waking up because I'm living out the dream.
I take that to my doom, I'm bursting out the seams,
I take another hit 'cuz this is where I want to be.
(Chorus)
(Outro)
She's all up in my head, she's all up in my head, she's all up in my head. (x2)
Track Name: Sweet Alibi
(Verse 1)
Here she's, comin' round to catch me, caught up in a spider's lines,
Here we’re, runnin' 'round in circles, nothing changes sober minds,
Hearsay, all the hearts you're breaking, hear you're comin' back for mine,
Here, take everything I worked for, write it off another time.
(Pre-Chorus)
I searched for answers everywhere, I searched for days and nights,
She’s crawling back into my bed, with a sweet, sweet alibi,
Her words, they flow from in one ear, to out the other side,
I love the way she lies, I love the way she lies.
(Chorus)
Sweet alibi, sweet alibi.
(Verse 2)
Come by, when she’s feelin' naked, she was such a trouble child,
Calm down, they want her to cool it, no one wants her acting wild,
Come 'round, when we get together, all we do is smoke and fly,
Come now, maybe when you get here, maybe we can stay awhile.
(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)
(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)
Track Name: Pass That Thing
(Verse 1)
Hey, hey, give it away, well, she’s living in a hideaway,
It's been a long time, it's been a long while, been livin' up inside of a cage.
Hey, hey, give it to me, while I'm livin' out another day,
It's been a long time, it's been a long while, been livin' with a foot in a grave.
(Pre-Chorus)
If I was to let you go, then how would you take it up?
If I was the answer, then what question did you make it from?
If I'm still alive and well, then how can you change me?
Despite all you gave, I still add fuel to the flame.
(Chorus)
Pass that thang, that thang, pass that thang, my friend.
Pass that thang, that thang, that thang, my friend.
(Verse 2)
Hey, hey, give it away, but I'll never give her all of me,
Been sinnin' all night, been sinned my whole life, the wickedness is part of a routine.
Hey, hey, so what do you say, that we roll one up that rasta way?
We’re leaving that pipe, believe in King Size, and leaving only ashes remained.
(Pre-Chorus)
If I were the only one, then why can't we get enough?
If I weren’t around, then don’t it stop you from raising up,
If I weren't allowed, then I would find other ways, but,
Despite all the craze, girl you got somethin' I crave.
(Chorus)
(Pre-Chorus)
If you had the power, baby, how would you shake things up?
If you had no say, then would you fly right and straighten up?
If there ain't no rules, then baby, how can you break 'em?
Despite all the rage, let's set this city ablaze.
(Chorus)
Track Name: Babylon's Martyr Song
(Verse 1)
Hey, well, fire rained down 'pon the Babylon sky,
Walking to the liquor store right at the same time,
Working with a hoodie and a bullet proof vest,
Working for his money but he aint got none left,
So hey, hey, you gotta get paid, there's a lot of money out thats gotta get made,
So fall alongside what your brothers will say,
Work it, work it, work it 'til you're making your way.
(Chorus)
Babylon's martyr's song, Babylon's martyr's song,
Won't you sing along?
Babylon's martyr's song, Babylon's martyr's song,
Won't you sing along?
So hey, hey, you wanna get paid,
But you wanna do it without catching no case.

(Verse 2)
Hey, well, strolling through the front door, hear the door chime,
Acting like you need another case of Bud Light,
Acting like you're going right, but then you turn left,
Pulling out the burner, point it to the clerk's chest,
Say hey, hey, the money I’ll take, Give it to me in a second for your life’s sake.
So call a cop, tell 'em all that they got dates,
With a .40 caliber behind the Man's face.
(Chorus)
So hey, hey, he's jogging away, you won't ever see him no more, never again.
(Verse 3)
Rollin through the 'hood was a rookie named Heinz,
Fresh academy cadet, Babylon prime,
Saw the robbery occur, watched it progress,
Shot the robber down, shot him in the boy's head,
Said "hey, hey, another youth dead, I don’t care if his family ain't got no bread."
So go and weep for the lad at the boy's wake,
Just another fallen one who can't catch a break.
(Chorus)
So hey, hey, the youth gone to waste, add another to the ones that dug his own grave.
Track Name: Poisonous Love
(Verse 1)
Back at the trap house, sprawlin' on the bed,
Two lovers face down, lying there dead.
Right from the start saw troubling news,
Little did they know of their doom.
Boy was a crack fiend, junkie by day,
Girl was depressed, looking for an escape,
They’ll hit it off quick, sharing there pain,
Making sense of a world gone insane.
(Chorus)
They've hit it off fast, on the wrong track, he introduces her to the drugs,
They tried mescaline, weed, codeine, gasoline, did anything that caught 'em a buzz,
And when depression, it relapsed, they came right back,
'Til they couldn’t stand another 'til they were numb
Well it's that poisonous, poisonous, poisonous love,
That poisonous, poisonous love.
(Verse 2)
Spent every hour lookin' for ways,
That they could get their fix for the day.
Sold everything now stealing to pay, for their satisfaction to stay.
Trips to the hospital, trips to the jail,
Trips from the drugs got 'em trippin' for real,
Hate one another, but they run with it still,
It's cheaper when together for deals.
(Chorus)
They had a main cat, dealin' their smack, until the day they got him and caught up,
They tried callin' all fiends, now resorting to the streets, now getting it from neighborhood thugs,
And then appeared out of the clear was a man not from here, with a gaze that may give nightmares to some,
Dealin' that poisonous, poisonous, poisonous love,
That poisonous, poisonous love.
(Verse 3)
One night, the urge was too much to rest,
Without a word to her spouse, she had crept.
Off to the man with the terrible gaze,
Offered her body for exchange.
He took the last bits that she had left,
He left the room, not to be seen again.
Back of a trap house, two lovers dead,
The girl with her new lover, named Heroin.
(Chorus)
She took a bomb hit, overdosed it, they found her body after a month,
Well he's devastated, couldn’t take it, no his heartache wouldn't fix with no drug,
And the guilt wouldn’t shake, so he wants to end it, he's lookin' down the barrel of a gun,
Dying from that poisonous, poisonous, poisonous love,
That poisonous, poisonous love.
Track Name: In the Fire
(Verse 1)
Major, they don't call me minor, even when I was a kid I was still spittin' fire,
I'm a warrior, I'm a battle veteran, and I shouldn't be alive after all of this action,
I'm a player, I been puffin' marijuan', when you're smellin' something burnin' best believe it's purple,
I'm a savior, of this reggae genre, ain't no messin' with this hustle when it's with this monster.
Ain't right, but I'll give it one more try, we're only guna die tonight,
These ties, getting deeper all the time, I don't need forgiveness and I don't need no repentence, 'cuz,
(Chorus)
I, I was born and raised up in the fire,
Was born to give 'em hell, because,
I, I was born and raised up in the fire,
Was born to give 'em hell, by design.
(Verse 2)
Rider, I'm a do or dier, put a title belt around me 'cuz I am a fighter,
And I'm wiser, after bein' a sufferer, when I came from nothin' now I get what I desire, and I,
Murder, with a .40 caliber, if you ain't an enemy you better duck and cover,
I'm a sinner, I'm a rollin' southsider, and I'll rep it 'til I'm dead and in the ground retired.
Ain't right, but it's always on my mind, we're only guna die tonight,
These ties, getting deeper all the time, I don't need forgiveness and I don't need no repentence, 'cuz,
(Chorus)
(Bridge)
One minute come and gone, and tell them all they can turn me up,
Because I'm bomb-diggity the bomb, I ain't no run of the mill busta',
Come and I'll run up on ya, with my 9 millimetey partner, cuz,
I'm come and I take-uh no prisoner 'cuz I'm buckin' 'em up for jah.
Somebody give me something that'll make it alright,
Somebody save me from this hell I'm given by life,
Somebody give me something that'll help me pass time,
Somebody give me something 'cuz this feelin' ain't right,
Ain't right, ain't right, ain't right, ain't right, 'cuz,
(Chorus)
Track Name: Burn One Down
(Verse 1)
If you find yourself up in a hard long day, and the world has got you down,
If you're feelin' like there isn't no escape, friend I gotta bring you around.
If you're out there grindin' on a daily base, baby yes I get it, and I respect it,
But if the trouble's ever gettin' in your way, ya'll just gotta burn one down.
(Chorus)
La di da da da da, Rastafari showed me how,
La di da da da da, ya'll just gotta burn one down.
(Bridge 1)
Posted on the block, you know I'm heavily sedated,
All around the world the masses gettin' medicated,
Even doctors, politicians, gettin' elevated,
Wanna spread the word out to this wasted nation.
(Verse 2)
If you're wildin' out, then baby do your thing, I ain't gunna stop you now,
If that's what your about then baby run your game, ain't no harm no done, no foul.
But if you wanna get like me to ease your pain, first you gotta roll it, and then you hold it,
And if the stressin' ever gettin' in your way, ya'll just gotta burn one down.
(Chorus)
(Bridge 2)
Right behind the club they caught me trying to catch a fadin',
Every single night is something of a celebration,
I will stay, remain the same, regardless of the haters,
Lost up in the clouds, it got me wasted, spacin'.
Workin' harder, playin harder is my dedication,
It ain't just a way of life, it's also like a statement,
All of us will face the reaper, some sooner than later,
Might as well just burn one down.
If you wanna ride with me, get high and live the life with me,
We can do it any way you want but would, you follow if I took the leap?
Would you hop if I were to take that leap? Would you sow whatever I should reap?
I see it in your eyes, I know you'll come around, 'cuz you are just the same as me.
If you wanna ride with me, get high and live the life with me,
I see it in your eyes, I know you'll come around, 'cuz you are just the same as me.
If you wanna ride with me, get high and live the life with me,
I see it in your eyes, I know you'll come around, 'cuz you are just the same as me.
(Verse 1)
(End Chorus)
La di da da da da, Rastafari showed me how,
Ya'll just gotta burn, ya'll just gotta burn, ya'll just gotta burn one down.
La di da da da da, Rastafari showed me how,
Ya'll just gotta burn, maybe then you'll learn, ya'll just gotta burn one down.
Track Name: Set It Off
(Verse 1)
Runnin' 'round this city in this ride alone,
Police always lookin' for this murderer,
I'm rollin' some weed up out of a parking space,
Some liquor to the head until I'm feelin' straight,
I land up on the spot and I'm still linkin' up,
I catch a birdie starin', what's she thinkin' of,
I let 'em all know which hood comes and brings the funk,
She wanna come along and roll with us.
(Pre-Chorus)
If you want it, we can take it to the back and we can take it off,
Got me feelin' up this heat, I got sweat drippin' off,
We can't stand around a minute longer, set it off, set it off, set it off, 'cuz we're burnin' up.
(Chorus)
Really don't need that lighter though, we can burn up on our own,
Let's get it, set it off, set it off, set it off, set it off,
Oh, whether degrees are down below, we can battle of this cold,
Let's get it, set it off, set it off, set it off.
(Verse 2)
Molly keep me up until the light of day,
Following the line-up in a vicious way,
When I'm off the set you know I hit it up,
A bella saw my cigarette and lit me up,
I may peform a set, but baby I ain't playin',
I may record a verse, but baby I ain't sayin',
If I'm a little crazy, then they're all insane,
And with a spark we can ignite the flame.
(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)
(Bridge)
I'm watchin' this bad girl, I'm watchin' this sad girl,
Caught up in this mad world, caught up in disaster,
All up around on ya, all up and down on ya,
Do ya like it up on ya?
Do ya body like, do ya body like, do ya body right.
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, when we burn up, take it slow,
With it comes the amber glow, never ending burning love.
Got me sayin', got me sayin', oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my, so,
(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)
Track Name: Killa
(Verse 1)
Yea, I am something of a beast boy, bucking all of ya'll down the tracks and the street boy,
Yea, I'm a killer on this beat boy, pretty little thing in the back of my seat boy,
Yea, I'm a shark without a meal boy, got my Brewfish on the top makin' real noise,
Yea, I'm a tell it to you real boy, warnin' little fish not to swim with the big boys.
(Pre-Chorus)
Line 'em up, shawty line 'em up, got 'em on the run around, got 'em on the run,
Line 'em up, shawty line 'em up, got 'em on the underground, pushin' daisies up,
Stick 'em up, stick 'em up, stick 'em up, wanna hear that funky sound, Long Beach Rub-a-dub,
Line 'em up, shawty line 'em up, wanna blow your brains about, wanna take my gun.
(Chorus)
Take my gun, take it up, then I'll take all of you down, baby one by one,
It's just the killa, the killa, the killa in me, the killa in me, so I,
Take my gun, take it up, then I'll take all of you down, baby one by one,
It's just the killa, the killa, the killa, the killa in me.
(Verse 2)
Yea, I'm a give it to you filthy, they can call me sick in the head if you feel me,
Yea, I'm the illest that there can be, daily medicate, I don't stop 'til it kills me.
(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)
(Bridge)
Yes sir, I'm a take it for a ride, never any guffy when my pistol's by my side,
Yes sir, I'm a get it on tonight, shawty wanna get it right up in between the eyes,
Yes sir, wanna blow away your mind, wanna pull that trigger back and pop it off and watch it light,
Yes sir, wanna put that lead aside, but only or the steel because I'm lovin' doin' grime.
Yes sir, I'm addicted to the life, I'm a give it all I got and you know that's the bottom line, I say,
Yes sir, I'm a ride until I die, I'll never get enough because I love to play with fire.
(Chorus) x2
Track Name: Brown Eyes
(Verse 1)
Rising up, with the sun, clear the fog from her eyes, yea she drifted so long,
From her sleep, loiterer, she'll put make-up on with her skin colored bronze,
In a bleak bathroom stall, with the stains on the walls, in a smokey apartment,
She'll face, the mirror, but she won't recognize the face that's before her.
No will to conform to, to a friend she'll perform to, but alone she'll weep softly,
While teardrops flow from beautiful,
(Chorus)
Brown eyes, brown eyes, brown eyes,
She lives a beautiful lie behind a disguise,
She's so beautiful tonight, tonight, wonder why,
The teardrops fall from them eyes,
Brown eyes, brown eyes, brown eyes.
(Verse 2)
Driving in every night, she's pulling up to her usual spot,
She'll get in, do her time, the music is all that she hears in her head,
Working free all life, her dues are paid off now she's ready to sleep with a friend,
Dim the lights, cigarette before bed after wishing for death.
Ain't a thing to look forward to, to the world she's adored, but in the end she'll still weep softly,
While teardrops flow from beautiful,
(Chorus)
(Bridge)
Out of all, all of them, we can't be the only ones,
With it all covered up, while the vices carry us,
Went along, far too long, now we fight to hold our ground,
But it will not be enough, 'cuz the bottom is just so comfortable.
(Verse 3)
Rising up, to the light, the radios on playing her favorite song,
She'll tune in, drifting blind, the incoming dawn keeps her moving along,
What she did felt alright, but the feeling is gone just as fast as it comes,
When it hits, there she'll lie, until sleep comes and closes them beautiful proud brown eyes.
Track Name: 9mm
(Chorus)
Wadadadang, wadadidadang, listen to my nine millimeter go bang, say now,
Wadadadang, wadadidadang, listen to my nine millimeter.
(Verse 1)
I knew a crack dealer by the name of Peter, I had to buck him down with my nine millimeter,
He said I had his girl, I say now what you're stupid, he tried to play me out but I already knew it,
He tried to pull his pistol but it was just a waste, my nine millimeter was already in his face,
He pulled his pistol any way, so I fill him with lead, and right when he fell down you know that this is what I said.
(Chorus)
(Verse 2)
Seven days later, I was chillin' at the gate, but it only took seven for gossip to circulate,
You know I'm puffin' sensi, I heard knock, knock, knock, but the way that know sounded, it was not like any cop,
And if it was a customer, they'd ask me for a nick', so right then and there you know that it was just a trick,
They pop right threw the door because they waste no time, they pop right through the door, so I had to go for mine.
(Chorus) x2
Grab all my money and went right down the block, I had to see my partner Scotty LaRock,
He pulled up in his Beamer and we speed off in a hurry, he said "Relax homie, and just tell me the story."
I said I killed Petey, and his posse tried to kill me, but I'm alright now, because the sensimilla fill me,
He laughed and said he knew that they were all already dead, 'cuz right when they fell down you know that this is what you said.
(Chorus)
(Outro)
Bang,
Bang,
Bang,
Bang.
Track Name: If You're Down Tonight
(Verse 1)
I come from the streets, lookin' so extra fly,
I come packin' heat on my way to the block,
I'm comin' for sure, but I'm never on time,
I come from the town of LA.
She gave me a wink, and she gave me a smile,
She gave me the pink after talking awhile,
She don't understand, I'm a player for life,
I don’t even know her name.
(Pre-Chorus)
Might as well, we might as well be lovers,
We might as well, we might be undercover,
We might as well another, might as well each other,
Might as well, baby tonight, tonight i'm gonna,
(Chorus)
Pour it out, take it to the crib, we can spend the night,
Roll it up, take it to the dome, we can pass around,
Rack it up, we can blow it all, we got half an ounce,
We can do it all, but only if you're down tonight.
(Verse 2)
I roll 20 deep, when I'm playin' it right,
I roll six feet deep, on my finishing night,
I roll with the punches time after time,
I come what I likes what I take.
(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)
(Bridge)
When you have it all, them flashing lights aren’t ever far,
When you pass it off, them flashing lights they carry on,
When you have it all, them flashing lights aren’t ever far,
When you want it all, the flashing lights, I say, them lights don’t ever stop.
Might as well, might as well, might as well, you might as well just,
(Chorus)
Track Name: Revolution
(Verse 1)
We are, we are, the chosen ones, seen the rise and seen the fall, seen the madness of it all,
We are, we are, the broken ones, whether dreaded, spiked or bald, they got our backs against the wall, yea.
(Pre-Chorus 1)
I'll live my life as a martyr, and maybe we got,
Some of us that live for the slaughter, and maybe we got,
Something that is up in the water, and maybe we got, maybe we got,
(Chorus)
A revolution, revolution, revolution, you can't refuse the revolution.
(Verse 2)
We are, we are, the fortunate, never here or there for long, not a place where I belong,
We are, we are, the desperate, never need you when you call, never cared for much at all, yea.
(Pre-Chorus 2)
Might live my life a bit larger, and maybe we got,
Some of us they grow to be stronger, and maybe we got,
Some of us that choose to die younger, and maybe we got, maybe we got,
(Chorus) x2
(Bridge)
Might live our lives as wanderers,
Some live it out, livin' so somber,
Some of us want, to live forever,
Want you to all be a part.
(Chorus) x2
