so you can tell me im an outcast
i only see it as a compliment
it only seperates my fears from my confidence
im nothing like the rest of you
i put that on anything
and its just unbelievable when i look back on everything
and everything i ever did i see it in a slideshow
running from the clouds you get caught up in a cyclone
running from police you get caught up in a typecast
running from ya problems, and running to the wine glass
lifes hard so you looking for escape routes
drugs are the ladder and the keys to a safe house
maybe you can see it now maybe you can comprehend
drowning in the broken promises of all our honest friends
maybe were just lost maybe we just need the help
following somebody else maybe you should be yourself
hunts said a crew that doesnt grow dies
i never really understood but now i know why
so now you have me on a mission
i seen them carry ya casket so i guess i have to carry on tradition
and rip it for my homie and the king of the west
i know you spread ya wings for us when you put up an S
so i guess im relieved that ya free of the pain,
but find it hard to believe well never see you again
so i just think about ya strength when im writing my raps
and make a toast to ya life with this ice in my jacks


so are we caught up in the craze or lost in translation
stuck were we cannot remain
you see all live life tryina meet them expectation
we go between pleasure and pain

but that aint free



ah ima a rival of society
runnin from my problems so im runnin from sobriety
coz when im the in traffic its harder to steer
i find moments of peace hidden in my cartons of beer
yeah i can see it clear now i can see it clear
you do it for the money but i do it for the cheer
i do it for myself and i do it for my peers
and silence is out of tune music to my ears
spent years at my desk, only trying to be the best
and was lookin for success but found none of it here
now we are destined for a life
full of bitches and ice
and when i say ice i dont mean the type that you can wear
coz the crack is in ya neighborhood,
heaven for the meth heads
fuckin with my stress levels getting all these death threats
cautious of my next step, livin like a weirdo
feelin like a prisoner but posin as a hero!

so are we caught up in the craze or lost in translation
stuck were we cannot remain
you see all live life tryina meet them expectation
we go between pleasure and pain

but that aint free
Track Name: 2. It Aint Sweet
VERSE 1
See im lookin for some peace that ill never find
coz the other side of me the vendetta type
type to over step a line lookin for a better time
used to fuck women now women are fuckin with this head of mine
alley rats in the backstabbers habitat
im just lappin up the luxuries that others havent had
i grab a pen and grab a pad
lookin fly as ever so i start another craze and i call it dappa tag
they after cheese so they captive in a mouse trap
gluttonous and greedy they just walk around fat
talk about cash but i never been about that
im cautious of the rats so i went and bought a house cat
uh they thinkin bitter is sweet
but bitter is bitter and bitter been in a bit of a sleep
that i woke up from now I'm grumpy and tired
they cant see im loony coz its something inside
and they couldnt even swallow it or stomach ya pride
so the bigger man i keep in me is comin alive
aint nobody saying shit when i return from ash
but they talk alot of smack when i turn my back
it aint sweet!


VERSE 2
yeah its mr guttermouth
i dont give a fuck i dont even give a fuck what you dont give a fuck about
i sound amped but im came to dance
with the devil, but ill settle for a shake of his hand
im makin a plan, i aint diddy makin a band
jeaporadize stability for the sake of a chance
put it on the line now im pushin my rhymes
how you gonna see the future if ya lookin behind
cook in the kitchen i dont write in the lab
i keep it movin like i took a free ride in a cab
i remember people tellin me im tryina be black
and now i see them same motherfucker trying to rap
they trying to push my buttons but im better than that
calculated with judgement so i never react
we keep a tight circle wherever we at
and if i diss you on a track you will never be back aha!
i put the bong down said goodbye to the mary
now anxiety attacks try to scare me so im kinda weary
so im shakin like a leaf when the drama near me
but my wordsll give you such a spankin that ya mumll fear me
Track Name: 3. Do You Think About Me?
its the second coming of nothin
i tried to stomach the poison
try to forget the past but remember my voice is
all that i have in this spiral of bad choices
made me so timid im flinchin at loud noises
i been drivin on this road fulla rocks
with my wheels all popped and they said it was pointless
they said i was boistrous
young and just hungry
so fuck it if i am i let the hunger become me
and now its funny when i think about the haters and laugh
coz all the best i bottled up i saved it for last
coz lately i been hearin alot of that and alot of this
long story short im hearing alot of shit
thinkin whats gotta give?
but even if its negativity they givin me i only see it as a positive
and i can promise this
im the uncut version of greatness
your the sloppy opposite,
ya just jumpin on the wagon as people are hoppin off of it
duplicated mcs lookin like veronicas
im droppin topics rockin with the proper shit
so ahead you could spot my with binoculars
im a real man and im still standin ya standin still
i have a mission fill the cannon with ammunition
the planet is filled with rappers who havent killed
anything they ever did and are lackin skill thatll chill
just give it time a little bit and youll find
the bullshit'll finish, the killers will be assigned
the mission to rid of it in ridiculous times
we just laugh at the idiots in this city of mine
wait i mean in this city of ours
all we can really do is to just pity the cowards
its like i never paid my bill?
i got people trying to strip me of power
just give me an hour i write a million bars
the nasty reptillion willin to take charge
itchin straight blast through the scene like a comet
its syllablox that fuckin silly bollocks we on it
so i look at crews like a 3 course dinner
add a bit of lemon couldnt be more bitter
i heard people wanna see more bitter
comin outta the speaker like seymour skinner
ha ha ha ha
i came here to speak trooth
everytime im in the booth i leak juice, who needs proof
that i bleed music, i do it for the people walkn in these shoes
im happy to please you!
Track Name: 4. Battleships
these days you barely ever hear me on some battle shit
so i had to come through and sink a couple of battle ships
sink a couple of jacks tell em im comin tell im im drunk
and so the venoms pumpin through my system
listen to this once
im so atomic ya see my demonic eyes,
and the haters help me grow i call them hyrdoponic lights
i been in the wars been a car spinnin and hittin the walls
been in a bit of a pickle but bitters livin givin it a million more
they say my flow is ill
to that im sayin thanks
either they got no skills or they just playin pranks
they say hip hops dead and its too boring
but thats like callin lebron james the new jordan
its ludacris, and stupid as sayin bitter whacks
get my fuckin dick out ya mouth faggot give it back
where the fucks ya mrs at
i take just the head of it and treat her pussy like a fitted cap



and i got my man shaker on the beat
let me take second just to say that shaker you beast!
its a coalition they aint able to defeat
we just cook it in the kitchen then we take it to the street
we seperating all the haters and the weak
from the greatest and elite so either take or leave it
either leave it or take it im givin people flavour
so do everyone a favour take a seat
hush hush child
whats with the kids of today and theyre fucked up style
i wanna lady in the streets that sweet
and when we get between the sheets she gets buck buck wild
i rep the coalition i rep the syllabollix
dudes is gettin out pocket like missin wallets
and this is honest kid its a promise,
my tongue is sick as vomit equipped with a fuckin missile on it if bitches want it?
Track Name: 5. Hello Hello
i stand right here hello hello
is there something that you wanted to say?
coz i stand right here hello hello
you cant ruin my mood today
coz i came from a kid who was spinnin and lost,
to man that found his way and i so say hello
i aint goin away
as ya new neighbour i say and i wave hellooo!!


my dad always told me son get a job that you like and you will never work a day in ya life
so i picked up a mic but i pen first
put my head down and i started to write
i put everything i felt inbetween the lines
still theres a lot of inner peace to find in myself
see it helps when you see the signs
and you escape a from place that could redefine hell if we seen it rise
i see the greed of the people in disguise
i dont see the real need or a reason to be like that
heres me thinkin that we grew into men
and come along way from a fight at the bike racks


i stand right here now hello hello
is there something that you wanted to say?
coz i stand right here now hello hello
you cant ruin my mood today
coz i came from a kid who was spinnin and lost,
to man that found his way
and i so say hello i aint goin away
as ya new neighbour i say and i wave hellooo!


i get butterflies when i arrive at the plate
i know im late but im young and i just like em to wait
i dont seek props from em im ridin with faith
i make music i relate to if they like it then great
but i dont shy away hidin my face
im true to myself until the day that i lie in my grave
thanks to syllabolix i now have a home
i give dap to the kings sharon jones
you see its all about a vision a civil civilization
too many people, sittin and waitin,
never given but they quickest to take,
they wait patiently to pick at mistakes, but tell them that i


i stand right here now hello hello
is there something that you wanted to say?
coz i stand right here now hello hello
you cant ruin my mood today
coz i came from a kid who was spinnin and lost,
to man that found his way
and i so say hello i aint goin away
as ya new neighbour i say and i wave hellooo!


allow me to re-introduce myself my name is
my name is bitter belief
im being lifted to my feet by the spirits livin beneath
isnt it sweet when ya livin in peace
i wanna take the batton and uphold the standard
and dedicate my career to walter handsford
at 18 i decided to follow my dreams
coz i never had a dream that was followin me and now i


i stand right here hello hello
is there something that you wanted to say?
coz i stand right here hello hello
you cant ruin my mood today
coz i came from a kid who was spinnin and lost,

Track Name: 7. Obsessed

i just wanna touch your legs
if i just wanna taste your lips
if i think that we were meant to be

since the day that i seen you on the tv
since the day that i purchased ya cd
never knew id get to see you in 3d
i bet ya never knew youd meet me nah jokes
now youve opened up a door that you cant close
but i aint got a chance coz im so broke
and i aint got a dollar so theres no hope
i love the way sing too its so dope
i dont know why you dating these losers
from mr mcfadden to mark phillapousis
so i had you on my wall when i was 15
still had you on my wall when i was 16
see i know how loony this shit seems
but who said that we could never live dreams? huh?
and when i see you you didnt disguise
the devilish side you hide in ya innocent eyes


tell me am i obssessed
if i just wanna smell you hair
if i just wanna have your kids?
if i just wanna have you here with me
tell me am i obssessed
i just wanna touch your legs
if i just wanna taste your lips
if i think that we were meant to be
tell me that im obssessed


got the smile of an angel, face of a covergirl
i swear to god i barely think about another girl
coz they aint you baby they just fall short
until god calls my number ima call yours
if you dont answer ima hit you up with more calls
coz i get horny when i picture you on all fours
but you my princess babe no disrespect
i wanna grip ya neck lick the sweat from ya chest
and its crazy maybe you were made for me?
i pray thats true when i lay to sleep
see im amazed by ya voice when you play them keys
got the keys to my heart when ya make me weak
you see im lost in ya beauty ya too unique
and i get a funny feeling whenever you speak
and when i seen you you didnt disguise
the devilish side you hide in ya innocent eyes


tell me am i obssessed
if i just wanna smell you hair
if i just wanna have your kids?
if i just wanna have you here with me
tell me am i obssessed
i just wanna touch your legs
if i just wanna taste your lips
if i think that we were meant to be
tell me that im obssessed
Track Name: 9. Never Again
i get this feelin like im fallin and the ground is gettin closer
everytime im straight everyday i spend sober
i think its over but it aint theres a evergrowin pain
i cant escape, and now im waiting for my closure
you see im like a paintin hangin on the wall
and its crooked but you leave it and just wait for it to fall
im so ashamed of my weaknesses runnin from them all
suicidal cinematics yeah runnin from the thought
did my dirt when i was younger now im runnin from the lord
while you still think its hard runnin from the law (the law)
unlockin all the doors releavin all my skeletons
i sell em to the morgue
i used to fiend for attention
im tell you its more like adored it
but now you can come and get it its yours
i just lie awake, staring at the roof
standing on the frontline as i prepare for them to shoot
but tell them they can open fire
im already lifeless stuck in a crisis and overtired
dealin with a load of liars and a pack of scum
holding up the trophy for a battle that i havent won
mum im sorry that you have an addict son
i never knew the repercussions i was only havin fun
now emotions are my enemy, i either dry them with the smoke
or i drowned em with the melody
i swear that this was never me, it happened overnight
i close my eyes with a bit of hope, throw the dice
take a gamble and i wish upon a star
wasnt hard in the beginnin but beginnin to be hard
knife in my hands, sittin in the dark
as i put it to my skin i think of ripping it apart (it apart)
eternally scarred
picture my heart as i take it out and turn it into art
its a movie for the viewers just a sequel to my illness
fill this glass to the top it filter out the realness
and im still just numbing pain with a different agent
in the waitin room to heaven but im sittin next to satan
this is lunacy, coz truthfully i know that im blessed
so what the fuck i gotta get off my chest?
sometimes i dont think i just write it down and let it out
coz ya gut feelin is somethin that you should never doubt
see its all about the weight thats on ya shoulders
if you can hold it up just long enough then you a fuckin soldier
but i told you in the start i aint followin a path
im nobody but me im a product of my past
a product of my yesterday
if you get burned by a bitch then its enough to tear the flesh away
so caught up that ya picturing the wedding day
but if ya thinkin shes the bomb, then wait for her to detonate
Track Name: 10. The Frontline
some people aint doin they job right
in it for the money yeah they in it for the spot light
in it for the bitches they in it for the fake shit
intentions so foul you can taste it
all the years i was kind natured
i take a look back now and that was time wasted
see i remember the days of tracksuits
when them boys didnt say no shit they just jacked you
when it was hk and none of these graph crews thats new
none of these dudes drippin in whack juice
people say im so nice yeah thats no lie
but they aint meet the same guy back in 05
when i would smoke ice drink and provoke fights
now i dont bother with people i dont like
coz im so past it, the age old beef
so it lays cold freezin asleep in a closed casket


lookin for direction coz everbodies lost
it isnt dead but it isnt what it was
ill be surprised if we make it out alive
coz its everyman for himself standing on the frontline


i see straight through save me the charm
intruder alert we should raise the alarm
i dont hate you im calm but i still wouldnt give you high 5 if i came in my palm
so many wanna bring the nineties back
that boom bap era that grimy rap
i love it to so i can see the sense
but im tryina be the best i aint tryina reinvent
see im meant to be rebellious im tellin yas now
i aint takin you to school im only tellin yas how
this is wow for the fans more doubt the haters
im building you a path laying down the pavers
and i laugh to myself when the shit gets ugly
say they wanna fuck me up but wanna fuck me
i hear em on the phone and they talkin wild
when i see them in the flesh, its akward smiles
i say whats good? its more denial,
so only talk on my shoes when youve walked for miles
and its written on the wall, its the proof in the puddin
its the 6 feet deep that ya puttin ya foot in
ya could a been cool couldve been a name to watch
but ya too busy lookin for a name to drop
cant feed off shine should ignite your own
its a long ride home trying to find the throne


we lookin for direction coz everbodies lost
it isnt dead but it isnt what it was
ill be surprised if we make it out alive
coz its everyman for himself standing on the frontline
Track Name: 12. Cut the Ribbon (Lord Knows Remix)
shout outs to all the people that i represent
all the people i aint seen in a minute
we might be standing at the start but can see to the finish
they got us cornered but of course we exceeded the limits
but wait dont mind me im just wishin
i could bring shaun home and just free him from prison
everybody i just need you to listen, and listen close
people seem to think i give a flyin fuck but i dont
i see people i went to school with
sick of dealing with a boss sick of working with a tool kit
same old 9 to 5
same same just a different day of the same bullshit
walkin the fine line
boredom at finest,
next year either side of me is formin an alliance
the year after ill be ballin with the giants
theres a method to the madness they callin it a science
and i am like a lion made of iron flyin in the sky
i got blood on my mind and fire in my eyes
who wanna talk about truth?
you can either water down proof or set fire to the lies
i see alot of people just standin and waitin
but i rise to the occasion like a standing ovation
i gamble with satan swing my sword at the lord
and spit a loogie in there faces just to warn em its war woah!



see i hear alot of talk from people who never do nothin
either need a kick in the ass or just a mute button
fruit muffin motherfuckers need to recognize
if you aint eating that mic you need to step aside
its just a starter appetizer for a martyr
and lifes alot harder now im runnin from my karma
its the calm before the storm, its the water for the needy
its the food for thought, if you ever thought you wasnt eatin
this is fire for the freezin, im leavin my mark
coz i got the type of steez you can see in the dark
you on the bench waiting for the season to start
im runnin field til i see my feet bleed on the grass ha
welcome to the auction heres a piece of my art
everytime you hear a rhyme you get a piece of my heart
everytime im in the zone with some genius bars
i look down on you faggots and ya penis is hard eewwwww
so if ya layin down a path you gotta pave it in gold
coz aint nobody else takin control
and if you break ground make sure ya breakin the mold
coz i aint chasin pussy now im only chasin my goals oh
i got the time im just lackin the emotion
so i guess its time to put the cavalry in motion
i did my dash now my battery is smokin
cut the fuckin ribbon coz the gallery is open
