[Verse 1: int eighty] Hit the road, get on my flight fine, touch down, reset Just gotta get in my right mind Every second is prime time along for the ride When this body's my vehicle I'ma drive mine Lights in the tunnel, illuminate the skyline A green metal scene not a dream but a pipe climb (Gears march on) Witness the journey of a lifetime So much struggle but it's relative, Einstein Going in circles, trying to find the right sign A one way ticket, we couldn't book it on Priceline My rearview is clear view in front of me my eyes blind Shouldn't be driving it in the night time Easily lost and more easily scared With the shadows from the bright lights And high beams glare Thick like the fog but clouded by doubt and fear Then you defrost the windows Everything becomes clear See here, opportunities still appear Same trips but the brand new flavor in your ear More than a death tax year after year If there's only one shot then it's more than a career (yeah) Wrong turns and there's no going back No slack impact detour after the fact that Sometimes GPS got in on track but if only I could navigate life With Google Maps like that (right turn ahead) [Chorus] Welcome to your life, welcome to this road The path's uncharted, gotta choose where you go On this one way show, please pay the toll With your hands on your wheel, gotta maintain control Welcome to your life, welcome to this road The path's just started, gotta choose where to go On this one way show, relax, take it slow (it's the return of the drifter) [Verse 2: int eighty] This goes out to my people everywhere Who in suffering endured more than their fair share The other kids at school made fun of what you wear Gym class picked last and never the best player The resistor, it's the, drifter Mister, inter-rupt eighty just the descriptor Table and it's stable so I spit a little quicker To deliver all the syllables Advanced to beginner didn't skip ya (Viktor) This is for the new kids Band nerds, chess clubs that never met Cupid Every day feeling so intrusive Past, present, and future all inclusive Understand that they just got it wrong In the zone or at home somewhere you belong They put you in that cage full of rage King Kong Claiming you were weak but inside so strong Thinking back remembering the dread How you hated weekdays lay awake in bed How you clutched at your sanity by a thin thread Wishing that your enemies had just been friends Cause this is your time so they're in debt For stealing all your shine made it hell instead You had the answers they're not impressed Embarrassed and distressed about your interests [Chorus] Welcome to your life, welcome to this road The path's uncharted, gotta choose where you go On this one way show, please pay the toll With your hands on your wheel, gotta maintain control Welcome to your life, welcome to this road The path's just started, gotta choose where to go On this one way show, relax, take it slow (it's the return of the drifter) [Verse 3: int eighty] This one's for everyone, in no way political Fine, just a little bit consider it municipal Brushed off the critical defied all the ridicule Denied any opportunity to make you miserable This one's for you in the physical You in the digital, you all together indivisible You atypical, you all original Who severed the umbilical you the individual Now take a look at you, see it in the clear? Made it out the fog, still standing, now you're here (uh uh) Lookin' back you was bringing up the rear See those bullies who you feared At best are just your peers And at worst? No need for going there Got your own path, keep climbing those stairs It's the path less traveled, now that you're aware Hold your head high, put your chin up in the air right there [Chorus] Welcome to your life, welcome to this road The path's uncharted, gotta choose where you go On this one way show, please pay the toll With your hands on your wheel, gotta maintain control Welcome to your life, welcome to this road The path's just started, gotta choose where to go On this one way show, relax, take it slow (it's the return of the drifter) Welcome to your life, welcome to this road The path's uncharted, gotta choose where you go Welcome to your life, welcome to this road The path's just started, gotta choose where to go (high plains drifter) (return) to your life

Back To Me 03:30
Another play at the game where I'm killing these scores On this mic for a while, but I'm feeling reborn A few years in rap - in fact, add a few more My memories of life before the start of Dual Core Brain always carrying a rhyme Try to get my skills up, battled all the time At the Reebok tournament, winning first prize Back when the Wiz was 100.9 Growing towards closure, exposure to the sound Scribble Jam every year, scoping from the crowd Snapping at these tracks when I open up my mouth Developing my freestyle, know what it's about Trolling other rappers, I was such a misfit Science in my writing feeling so analytic Verses in the circles, people didn't git it I thought it was a cipher, guess I'm too cryptic First class, hoping that I pass Priority delivery, settling the stats Returning it true cause you know it's overdue Still looking back at the path going through This is, first class, knowing that I'll pass Priority delivery, settling the stats Returning it to true cause I know it's overdue Knew it through and through Engage life, turned another page, right Wednesday nights when i'd battle for the stage Fright, put anxiety away Went from being introverted to inspired when I play My first show at Top Cats, staring at the crowd The music we developed, now they're sharing in the sound Getting big in the city, growing out of bounds Evansville, Columbus, I'm going out of town Didn't know to get around, find a better way Getting tips from other artists so I'm learning every day Blueprint and Dibbs really helped me find a balance Impressed by the best, Midwest full of talent In fact, still deposit in the track If I thought it's up for grabs then I wouldn't give it back Got a hold on the feeling, take control of the healing Filling holes in my soul while I grow through the ceiling First class, hoping that I pass Priority delivery, settling the stats Returning it true cause you know it's overdue Still looking back at the path going through This is, first class, knowing that I'll pass Priority delivery, settling the stats Returning it to true cause I know it's overdue Knew it through and through Back to me now, so the flow make it abstract Memories shine in the glow of a flashback Went from making something that I thought would get us laughed at To outshining every other Cincinnati rap act Still proving, not afraid of losing Stored in my core feel the war still brooding Underneath the hood, though, my brain's probably fuming Only show it on the stage so I'm so unassuming Plus human, and if I'm being fair When we're counting up mistakes Then I know I've made my share Cause life's no guide, and it's no smooth ride Swallow jealousy, envy, arrogance and pride Put the pride in my work, the other ones aside Cause life's too short and I'm running out of time Proud of having fun while I rock it for the crowd The music made it back, back to me now First class, hoping that I pass Priority delivery, settling the stats Returning it true cause you know it's overdue Still looking back at the path going through This is, first class, knowing that I'll pass Priority delivery, settling the stats Returning it to true cause I know it's overdue Knew it through and through We take it forward then back, forward then back The internet claps while they torrent this track Forward then back, forward then back Beyond all my dreams doing more in this rap Take it forward then back, forward then back The internet claps while they torrent this track Forward, back, forward, back, forward, back Sure to make a splash, first class

Fear & Chaos 04:57
Bring it on if you think you can hang Prudent to the new school we're moving through the change Thinking what we bring things will never be the same Retire all your firewalls, extinguishing the flames Best chill, the exfil is massive Laughing at their actions while they're grasping for their hashes No salts not the recommended practice My rainbow table's major there's no need for cracking passes New octet, i'm diving in head first My code to go in post keeps me silent on your network Botnet new node, yet another casualty My beacon interval doesn't happen systematically Pass the hash laterally, what happened to me? I trojaned all the firmware to backups and your battery Responders won't find me, i'll let the scare settle I'm one ring away from the sting of bare metal First place when I'm claiming my prize Fear and Chaos, man, when I open my eyes Waves of attacks and we're turning the tide I see your Fear and Chaos when I open my eyes Perimeter on lock but I'm moving inside Fear and Chaos, man, when I open my eyes On every single drive where my code resides I see your Fear and Chaos, man, when I open my eyes It's the information age watch the knowledgebase grow All these unsolved mysteries, I really need to know Who live like this? with a box full of op codes Locking down the top shows everywhere I drop flows My fly words are birds in action together The cluster algorithm uses patented feathers Recognize the chapter of these classical measures Now you're rocking on the passage with extravagant leisure I'm all tactical efforts on a savage adventure Along with Magical Trevor combined with Radical Edward The flow composition with the mic in my hand I got the zero day pivot point Gannon implant The triforce hype sort dwindling your life store Synthesize an antigen injecting on your mic cord In short, my wiretaps are feared It's the man in the middle still kicking in your ears, clear First place when I'm claiming my prize Fear and Chaos, man, when I open my eyes Waves of attacks and we're turning the tide I see your Fear and Chaos when I open my eyes Perimeter on lock but I'm moving inside Fear and Chaos, man, when I open my eyes On every single drive where my code resides I see your Fear and Chaos, man, when I open my eyes It goes Fear, CHAOS Fear, CHAOS Fear, CHAOS Say you're not afraid of Fear, CHAOS Fear, CHAOS Fear, CHAOS Ready for the take off Fear, CHAOS Fear, CHAOS Fear, CHAOS Say you're not afraid of Fear, CHAOS Fear, CHAOS Fear, CHAOS Ready for the take off It goes Fear, Chaos, fighting for the same spot Coded up the payload, praying for the payoff Silence on the wire so it's time to get my game on Feeling brainwashed, sitting in my day job, Okay Boss ISO Radon, fights in this hype storm My tactics will adapt like a biohazard lifeform Better forfeit, leveraging the core quick So unknown, overflowin', code metamorphic Engines for days, for heaps got better sprays Hope anti-forensics keeps the feds away Overclock, liquid minimize the resistance But leak a little bit of bits flipped to maintain Cover distance with vision in the pistons If it gets decrypted it'll end with bang bang Password reuse? Better think quickly The name on the data claims the leaks to the wiki First place when I'm claiming my prize Fear and Chaos, man, when I open my eyes Waves of attacks and we're turning the tide I see your Fear and Chaos when I open my eyes Perimeter on lock but I'm moving inside Fear and Chaos, man, when I open my eyes On every single drive where my code resides I see your Fear and Chaos, man, when I open my eyes wide

Yo, I hear them talking Yo, I hear them talking Things are quiet now, it was making me insane Do my best with the details, forget about my name It was chance, I'm no man to be admired I just took a stance, wouldn't say I was inspired Kept to myself in every situation prior Used to work with computers but was forced to retire Fled my homeland in a swift act of bravery For now, we'll say the full story is escaping me Either way it came to be Caught a plane to the states free, so it's plain to see I don't need attention, I try to be neighborly But this guy across the hall is making it hard I hear dishes being broken, doors being slammed The screams carry through the walls, the echoes expand His wife and her son, and that half of a man Then there's me, feeling powerless, creating a plan Yo, I hear them talking The voice in my head, is saying use caution These walls are too thin, they leave me no option Now I hear them yelling Fend for themselves, well there's no telling God help us, maybe I can help them One day in the hallway, here's where the story's from In a zone, sitting all alone is the son A look of hope from the code that he talks about I could tell that he knows that he's found his way out We spent months online showing all the tricks I knew From SQL injection to overflows and roots And exploit development, encrypted tunnels too The kid was a natural, he knew just what to do The student passed the teacher, admiring his hacks Formed a common bond, he confided in our chats He told me he would run if he had no other way And that he got hit for anything, even bad grades So he stayed, he endured things people shouldn't Stayed safe in his brain with his bones beaten crooked No idea how he took it, and he just played along I'll always remember, their son's name was John Yo, I hear them talking The voice in my head, is saying use caution These walls are too thin, they leave me no option Now I hear them screaming Continued in the morning what had started in the evening Everybody trapped, meaning nobody's leaving Now, on that day, there's no return from school Turn the TV on and there's John on the news He and two friends got caught up in their haste To attack the school's database and get grades replaced John's friends took their sentence from the state But the judge thought he was lenient in giving John his fate They gave him house arrest in the verdict that was published But John was well aware of the extent that he'd be punished His parents took custody, basically a curse After that he disappeared, had me fearing for the worst The father was the suspect, convicted in the end Saddened and assumed we'd never hear of John again Months turned to years and the odds grew further slim Then yesterday I got a note, I knew it was from him The normal stack of mail but this one card differed It had two words and they said: Thanks Viktor Yo, I hear them talking The voice in my head is saying use caution These walls are too thin, they leave me no option Now I'm hearing nothing The burden of the silence and the memories it summons Another satellite liberated by a Russian If you ever ask why If you never say die Please let me see you put your fist up When determined not to give up I gotta make them proud Out when I'm waving to the crowd Let me hear you say it now Please let me see you put your fist up Always farewell when determined not to give up

Never thought we'd have a song like this Like this, OK The other comforter, everytime I went to sleep It's too bad that we had to end the dream It doesn't mean that it was never meant to be It just seems that we grew apart eventually And if it turns out your the best I'll ever see I'm thankful for the time in my prime you spent with me The last thing I want is to overwrite the memories I know we aren't friends it doesn't mean that we're enemies Still getting used to the lack of your presence I know we'll pull through but we'll have to do it seperate No more bad jokes or "Would You Rather" questions Feels so weird without you finishing my sentence Almost ask if you're ready heading down The house answered back with the emptiest of sounds Go to share a song: You gotta listen to the sound Turn around and show you, you're nowhere to be found Never thought we'd have a song like this Had our lives then we add a little twist Things are different, have been ever since Gone but not forgotten, I still reminisce Miss your laugh and that wonderful way That beautiful smile like a warm summer day Live the past over something you would say There's no going back 'cause I had to run away Gotta say that it feels a little strange Writing for reflection, not out to make a change Never meant for you to suffer any strain Intentions are forgiven, I dismissed them with the blame Scared to admit it, but we both could see the truth And even though I'm still conflicted, take this song as proof Drive across the States just to get away from you That's two on the list of things I never wanna do Had a full forty hours of just staring at my dashboard Remembering with fondness, I'm only feeling half-torn Memories of every last stamp in our passports Feeling some regret 'cause I'm wishing that they matched more People ask more, why I hold the past for Overtime, can't rewind, flying towards that fast forward Life's moving quick so I'm learning from this crash course Speeding by, reaching high for that last score Never thought we'd have a song like this Had our lives then we add a little twist Things are different, have been ever since Gone but not forgotten, I still reminisce Miss your laugh and that wonderful way That beautiful smile like a warm summer day Live the past over something you would say There's no going back 'cause I had to run away Never thought we'd have a song like this Had our lives then we add a little twist Things are different, have been ever since Gone but not forgotten, I still reminisce, Like this Miss your laugh and that wonderful way That beautiful smile like a warm summer day Live the past over something you would say So want you back 'cause I love you anyway, Like- like Love you anyway, Like this Love you anyway, love you anyway Love you anyway, love you anyway Love you anyway, love you anyway, Like this Everytime I look back along the path Of the last seven years I see our two sets of tracks Shoulder to shoulder, still we had each other's backs Take a snapshot, let's never change the facts Ever keen, we developed our dreams Never mean toward each other yet we settled the steam Beveled and engraved, this incredible scene Indelible, we made a hell of a team Together we were clever facing challenges and fears Looking at each other, now your face is filled with tears The vision is persistent, keeping you endeared Staring at that door, half-expecting you'll appear The thought of us hurt too much to keep it near So this distance between us compares to light years It's the same atmosphere, still hear it in my ears I'm coming back home to you except now you're never here There I was, frozen, standing in my backyard Face to face, eye to eye, staring at the last star There I was, frozen, standing in my backyard Face to face, eye to eye, staring at the last star, Like this Never thought we'd have a song like this Had our lives then we add a little twist Things are different, have been ever since Gone but not forgotten, I still reminisce, Like this Miss your laugh and that wonderful way That beautiful smile like a warm summer day Live the past over something you would say There's no going back 'cause I had to run away, Like- Like this Never thought we'd have a song like this Had our lives then we add a little twist Things are different, have been ever since Gone but not forgotten, I still reminisce, Like this Miss your laugh and that wonderful way That beautiful smile like a warm summer day Live the past over something you would say I so want you back 'cause I love you anyway (Like-, like), love you anyway Love you anyway, (Like this!) love you anyway Love you anyway, love you anyway Love you anyway, love you anyway Love you anyway, (Like this!) love you anyway Love you anyway, love you anyway Love you anyway, love you anyway Love you anyway, love you anyway Love you anyway, (Like this!) love you anyway Love you anyway, (Like) love you anyway

[Verse 1: Remington Forbes] It was all a dream, as a teen I had ambitions to MC But the transition wasn't as simple as it seems To turn your life story into the simplest of things Intimate themes made for interesting sixteens And I was fifteen when I heard Rhyme Goes On By Eric B and Rakim, my mind grew numb I was in awe at how Rakim linked words His cadence, his pattern of speech, the beats merged And right then, something from within emerged Became TriloGGG and that's when life deterred I mean detoured, to take a path less traveled Bumpy roads ahead but I rose above the frazzle Way more gravel than the smooth road to college And fakes rose up like Manute Bol to block it But if it didn't work out, other doors would open Was intrigued with tech since my first Commodore was open Since Matthew Broderick war dialed with the modem I knew somehow that it would come back around But right now I'm flowing, began Club Ghetto Cincinnati's open off the song Heavy Metal Put us on your schedule, pencil us in Did show after show, released Livin' 'n Cin Took the city by storm But eventually the reign/rain ended And that's when Remy was born Took my passion for rapping and hacking computers Mashed them both together and made my past my future Now that I'm here it's clear my story's just begun I first guest appeared on the album Zero One [Verse 2: int eighty] It was summer '97 when it started coming down Went from treading in the mainstream to floating underground Loved the beats and sounds, never guessed I'd rap to them Then Canibus snatched crowns with heads attach to them That line made me question with battle rap intentions The vision had been shifted it was different not to mention I was still disconnected, looking at the trend Traded Bone Thugs N Harmony for Common with my friend Finally in '99 we found some other rappers I was downloading Pharoahe Monch from everyone on Napster Hi-Tek and Mood new exposure growing faster Mr. Dibbs held it down along with Animal Crackers It was Blueprint and Sage, tag them, add them to the factor Of memories before but you hear them in the after The music made emotions that these words could never capture My backyard was Scribble Jam, start another chapter Ruckus Man, Otherwise, ADM, and Prime RhymeFest and Juice had me losing my mind Never seen such passion, Brother Ali was a beast Eyedea and Unseen, may you both rest in peace Rewind Jedi Mind had the Heavenly Divine Non-Phixion, Black Helicopters in the sky Then they suggest my geography expanded The Heavy Hitters disc was a whole other planet It's funny looking back how I changed from year to year Still hip hop was constant, I held it near and dear J-Live's wit had me grinning ear to ear But I never would have known, owe it all to peer-to-peer When my AudioGalaxy was showing my the stars Windows rolled down, freestyling in my car Consistently at house parties rhyming every bar Rocking Masters of the Universe by Binary Star [Verse 3: Blueprint] Through the trials and the triumphs, the balance is kept So while one man work hard, another man slept I, took a look off the edge of the ledge Then a quick sec to hedge all my bets then lept, huh Told myself to expect disappointment Cause my corporate experience at best was a disjointed mess Of old spaghetti code, low man on a totem pole Wanted to leave but I was typecast with petty roles Five years, no va-cay they had me by my balls My cubicle was like a cell with reinforced walls Did demos while working on support calls Woke up my inner rebel, all he needed was a cause Started saving up my paper to reduce the risk Went out on my first tour then I called it quits Less dough but more happy than I've ever been A full-time artist, and haven't looked back since

Seven seas, four billion IPs Platoons full of soldiers identical to me I can chop at the root, like the base of life's tree Try to drop but they shoot, fire shots at high speed Some like it hot, now they're screaming WHY ME Tie the knot, you're engaged to this future like me This is more than foreign war, we're assured to die free Hordin' for another tour, not the kind you sight-see Type keys, clear the channel history I speak, condition anonymity Wide screens, projecting all the imagery Behind these high beams to display the setting visibly Cold in this winter see the steam from when I breathe Agents of these ministries lock us in this freeze The fight rages on while the victims mourn and grieve The internet's the battlefield, believe we're under siege This is hostile, never backing down Scorched earth policies, I'm standing my ground Remember and respect to the message we're bound The path is so dangerous to find a way around This is hostile, we're never backing down Facing scorched earth policies we're standing our ground Never will forget to the message we're bound The path is too dangerous to find a way around There's a war going on outside no man is safe from The cyber frontier for this planet where our fates run Resort to back and forth, give and then I'll take some Of course we'd apply our mindset to this creation Authenticate -- past it, crypto -- cracked it Teams take city infrastructures down for practice Sure you're secure and nobody can hack this The reason they typecast white hat tactics Threat is in and out, both sides of the costa Running out of time so we've gotta make the most of Get a close-up, don't want to get your hope up See the crash when they tried to pass SOPA, NOPE-UH Sheer and total chaos, the progress we'll unset You think that you want some feel free to come get Open up your eyes looking for the next Stuxnet The code's already there, we just haven't let it run yet This is hostile, never backing down Scorched earth policies, I'm standing my ground Remember and respect to the message we're bound The path is so dangerous to find a way around This is hostile, we're never backing down Facing scorched earth policies we're standing our ground Never will forget to the message we're bound The path is too dangerous to find a way around Time for an update: situation critical It's real world war much more than individuals Created a connection from virtual to physical Then torched that bridge and pissed on the residuals These are armies, not just introverted smart kids Fighting for the future leave your smart grid hard hit Life supports powered down, flat line darkness Power to the people, not enough to make a heart skip Country offline after striking with a core hit The off-switch op-shin (option) of nuking it from orbit Think they've had enough, well we're sending even more bits With no way to tell even if they try to forfeit Buffers overflow like a mushroom cloud Climbing into high mem, the heaps spraying down The ports and the hatches -- batten them down You think this is fiction? It's happening now This is hostile, never backing down Scorched earth policies, I'm standing my ground Remember and respect to the message we're bound The path is so dangerous to find a way around This is hostile, we're never backing down Facing scorched earth policies we're standing our ground Never will forget to the message we're bound The path is too dangerous to find a way around Me and Six Four, we kinda the same in ways We both speak with our hands in dangerous ways Me and Six Four, we kinda the same in ways We both speak with our hands in dangerous ways

[Verse 1: int eighty, (Tribe One)] It's the fight at the end for every short-term celebrity Plan it ahead of me, I stand in longevity Grasping my death, lacking any cause to fear it Extracting my spirit, (Last breath spit a lyric) Faced with the jargon when I aim for the target Just to live past a body that was based on this Carbon Begging your pardon, there's no telling whats next Replacing the argument dispelling success There's no need to be obedient deceiving each receiving it Deleting these ingredients in speeding to the median Exceeding the belief we live as seemingly defeated bids Relieving the conceited cheating easily repeating spins (Game time short of) finishing our run (Hastily record up) everything we've done Stage dive through the portal, I've had enough fun Make me immortal there can only be one [Chorus: Tribe One, int eighty] Span the horizon of endless possibility It's crazy how this life force is killing me I wanna live forever, explore the asymmetry From twenty aught three til infinity Span the horizon of endless possibility It's crazy how this life force is killing me I wanna live forever, explore the asymmetry From twenty aught three til infinity [Verse 2: Tribe One, (int eighty)] If you're listening to this song after I'm gone Then let it stand as a record of how I lived my life But if I'm still here you better be rapping along Cause me and eighty are proof lightning will strike twice Said I was intelligent but had my head in the clouds For every second of the decades I developed this sound But when my time came (a hush fell on the crowd) Forget about doubt, it's either never or now This is where we separate the movers and the shakers From the losers and the haters the consumers from creators (The truest from the traitors) And we few who remain will use the music To the tune the future in our favor So Tribe One, int eighty, and c64 Are a sign of things greater than previous norms In a time when invaders were greedy for more We decided to innovate and speak from the core [Chorus: int eighty, Tribe One] Span the horizon of endless possibility It's crazy how this life force is killing me I wanna live forever, explore the asymmetry From twenty aught three til infinity Span the horizon of endless possibility It's crazy how this life force is killing me I wanna live forever, explore the asymmetry From twenty aught three til infinity [Verse 3: Tribe One, (int eighty)] Every night I'm on the grind til the sunlight shines To find a way to fit forever into one lifetime Like-minded individuals see the kind of difficulties That arise when fighting mythical beasts I guess that I've accepted I'll eventually die (So every breath is an effort) to keep the legend alive Walk the earth, every step move my head to the sky (And this is just a little something) to remember me by (Battle demons of the underworld), lords of every myth (Clash with the titans, drink dry the river Styx) (Burn scribes of every script leaving legends ill-equipped) (My soul to the archives) so you can get the gist (Flash and re-encrypt then embed it in your post) (Regardless of the media just share it coast to coast) (Send the stream throughout the universe on every telescope) Signal satellites and tell 'em (how this one fought for hope) [Chorus: int eighty] Span the horizon of endless possibility It's crazy how this life force is killing me I wanna live forever, explore the asymmetry From twenty aught three til infinity Span the horizon of endless possibility It's crazy how this life force is killing me I wanna live forever, explore the asymmetry From twenty aught three til infinity, you feeling me [Outro: Tribe One] Every night I'm on the grind Every night I'm on the grind Til the sunlight shines Sunlight shines To find a way light shines Every night I'm on the grind til the sunlight shines ...to fit forever into one lifetime

Farewell 04:13
Trials in this life whether calm or disaster Sadness and the laughter beginning through the after Turn the page, then we start another chapter She said, as the car drove away Tail lights vanished in the glow of the day Coping with the change all alone in their estate Sent their daughter off to college now they're so old and gray Don't know what to do with this time they've been given Started a foundation technology for children They want to change the world, make it better, make it different {Farewell} On the run like he's super slick A fugitive who knew the tricks removing every clue they skip Moving quick, hoping they don't shoot him with A lie tranquilized that they get him to maneuver in Started with his knowledge and a proof to make it lucrative Prison's not a future for an innocent computer whiz Bounced underground, finally made it out the sewers then {Farewell} Farewell if you ever ask why Farewell, tell if you never say die Farewell, please let me see you put your fist up Always fare well when determined not to give up Farewell now I gotta make them proud Farewell, out when I'm waving to the crowd Farewell let me hear you say it now {Farewell} Conversation stops when their moniker is mentioned An undetected presence on the internet they leverage So much potential they change it to kinetic Connected, relentless, no interest in a penance They're just, bent on a method for their vengeance Prevalent with messages, know how to make an entrance Identities unknown, citations need a reference Bet you'll get it with this very next sentence Not forgiven not forgotten but they're certainly expected {Farewell} Factor mathematics then it's all a game of averages Coding, overflowing, still invoking what their passion is Get a hacker kid and match him with an activist Pad it with an additive for automatic catalyst The fact that it exists isn't actually the saddest bit Scale across the planet understanding what the fraction is Instantly mobilized and suited up for battle quick {Farewell} Farewell if you ever ask why Farewell, tell if you never say die Farewell, please let me see you put your fist up Always fair well when determined not to give up Farewell now I gotta make them proud Farewell, out when I'm waving to the crowd Farewell let me hear you say it now {Farewell} Control's coming loose, cause and effect Know when to choose, pause let it set Show me the proof, call for the best Moment of truth, go again Control's coming loose, cause and effect Know when to choose, pause let it set Show me the proof, call for the best Moment of truth, and it's all that you get Trials in this life whether calm or disaster Sadness and the laughter beginning through the after Turn the page, then we finish out the chapter {Farewell} He's the leader of these vagrants No debate, bringing faith to the faithless Federal agents, mad 'cause they're flagrant They hacked all the taps that were placed in the basement Delivering a way to save the internet they're faced with And an atmospheric network they're launching with a spaceship Funded with the money that they stole from a foundation {Farewell} Not what he meant from his steady trend of envious Foundation's bankrupt, the couple died penniless The darkest of surprise, the startle in their eyes The project that they started was the heart of their demise Now they lay in a coffin made of rotted wood So altruistic, they meant to do a lot of good The world did change, but not how they thought it would {Farewell} Farewell if you ever ask why Farewell, tell if you never say die Farewell, please let me see you put your fist up Always fair well when determined not to give up Farewell now I gotta make them proud Farewell, out when I'm waving to the crowd Farewell let me hear you say it now {Farewell}

[Verse 1: int eighty] Only seconds to the day to year before I leave And every breath that I take is one less that I breathe Sometimes I can't help but to feel fatigued Statistically though I spend a third of it asleep Headlights from the car quick Flashes of bright like the sparks in the darkness What I see makes my heart skip Stomach upset, pull over I'm feeling car sick Ok, finally got it out the way The release feel at ease, unpause and press play B A up down left right Starting to Select my adventure for this life Choose to equip and escape than rather fight Shooting infrared arrays to switch the traffic light No question, didn't even look in a hacker's direction As I ran the intersection [Chorus] Whether Empire State or the great Golden Gate Please let them know that there's no time to waste Return or Strike Back, you gotta duel with your fates You gotta let it out, there's no time to waste Broadcasting now to all time and space Achieve and we show that there's no time to waste The cool Dual Core in the place with Dale Chase Please let me hear you shout: There's no time to waste [Verse 2: Dale Chase] Ain't made a beat in awhile, neither then a lyric Was all about the audio, wasn't trying to hear it Seated in the Herman Miller got to capture the mood Turning waves into bits and hit my head room Want a bigger partition, the OS stops and said, I Dream too lofty and straight sandboxed me And it's so hot swap, it's nothing to replace me Talking reformat but you can't erase me Out the revolving door was a nice stint Let me sit and write a song, wrote a full-length Feeling less like a viewer over VNC Inspired by a channel and the world's Audacity Now I keep a bookmark of what gets me amped Beats stay spilling til I hit my timestamp When life's like a PC you pick your parts Follow your heart, 'cause with friction comes sparks [Chorus] Whether Empire State or the great Golden Gate Please let them know that there's no time to waste Return or Strike Back, you gotta duel with your fates You gotta let it out, there's no time to waste Broadcasting now to all time and space Achieve and we show that there's no time to waste The cool Dual Core in the place with Dale Chase Please let me hear you shout: There's no time to waste [Verse 3: int eighty] I've got a life full of living. Every second vintage Blink when you think then it's gone in an instant So mitosis the catalyst drives Open eyes and I see my time passing me by All these self-signed certs, what a sign of the time They don't validate, they just sign on the line Rhyming in a silence in the prime of my life In Deloreans, roll back the '985 To the future, everybody looking for the proof of The next generation, evasive maneuvers Beam me up, phasers and the space bombs First mate gone set my hands for the face palm What's your take on? Hey we want to know Only deal with the realness, 1s and 0s Advice for this life in sickness and health The breakpoint's one shot live it yourself while giving it hell [Chorus] Whether Empire State or the great Golden Gate Please let them know that there's no time to waste Return or Strike Back, you gotta duel with your fates You gotta let it out, there's no time to waste Broadcasting now to all time and space Achieve and we show that there's no time to waste The cool Dual Core in the place with Dale Chase Please let me hear you shout: There's no time to waste

[Intro: int eighty] This one's dedicated to all the hackers [Verse 1: int eighty] Even out settle scores quick Our disaster recovery requires even more disks Put your bytes up, prove it or you forfeit Got my C64 and we blew it into orbit M. Bison with eight straight perfects Overvolt emotions make hate break circuits In case you heard, it's a named fake service Optimize our runtime to escape verdicts Got an integer scope flow That they can't sign Passing code, didn't sanitize Command lines; land mine So before, they'll see me after I'm Advice dog Courage Wolf Plus Philosoraptor Don't prove we're human unless we really hafta My team built schemes that destroyed recaptcha Hate what they see, finish this chapter By the way we're not any geeks, we hack into NASA [Chorus] Drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things Got this Vodka and this Redbull They still give me wings So we drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things Zero through Three We're in every single ring [Verse 2: int eighty] I'm just waiting 'til my Blackberry dies Cause I'll replace it with a Raspberry Pi Don't compare to this track It makes everything they said dull Neutralize any threat Turn Red skull to dev null They killed virus writers that we mentioned But instead they ascended to the VXHeavens Then reincarnate as live wires Still inside we hide ciphers in signed device drivers Which school will we hit next? They didn't learn the format So we've gotta print F Next step is a chin check Freestyles that I spit best They didn't decrypt yet I crush internet MCs in rhyme battles Get your WiFi tackled Hak5 Pineapple I don't think you'll like my Snapple Cause I popped it with vodka And a cyanide capsule [Chorus] We drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things Got this Vodka and this Redbull They still give me wings So we drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things (You know there's going to be security, right?) [Verse 3: int eighty] First we drink all the booze Then hack all the things Then backdoor the firmware On anything you bring Regardless of the hardware, service, or encoding Connect it to the internet And someone's gonna own it This is for the pirates who clap And love the sound Attacking from the cloud Then we're back and underground There's no masking from us now We pop Tor nodes around the globe Track and hunt you down Hacked on schedule, added to your calendar Devices online; here comes another challenger State infiltrated, so undercover This is for my comrades who stare at their debuggers And trace every buffer Examining the code flow Haven't been to sleep? Better pop another No-Doz I think I'll need a planet sized urn 'Cause some men just wanna see the world burn Your turn [Chorus] Drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things Got this Vodka and this Redbull They still give me wings So we drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things Drink all the booze Hack all the things Zero through three We're in every single ring

Last Writes 06:04
Pick it up from the start or we've nowhere to go Quick with the rhythm ain't no taking it slow Got a need that I feed now by hitting the road And I'm living every minute of it ripping at shows They made it addictive flipping this music Had a dream now I'm in it but considered it lucid Out with the jury so inconclusive I could quit it if I wanted but there's no way to prove it Lights in my eyes never shunning the glare A game full of rappers and I'm loving the players Staring at the crowd and with sudden aware With a sea full of bodies, fists pumping the air Where I want to be when my heart quits popping Put me in the DJ's turntable coffin Made to feel invincible, no one's gonna stop it The beat's in the speakers, so we're gonna rock it On my last writes, last writes So don't ask why, ask why Time will pass by, pass by For this fast life, fast life It goes back and forth and back and forth Back and forth, bring it back from the source It goes up and down and up and down Up and down, so much love for this sound So much love for this sound Got a handful of passion, some of the talent Fighting all my life just to try to find a balance Now I'm touring out and pouring out my heart by the gallon Given that I'm winning, say I'm up for the challenge Life split in half, looked at the map Tell me when to go now there's no looking back Doing everything I thought I couldn't with rap If I showed you the results then you wouldn't have laughed To the front of the queue like I'm pushing the stack So quick when I move that they couldn't react Got Six Four you're overlooking the facts Give him any criticism and I'm pushing it back What I need is a feed when he's cooking up tracks I complete with a lead in and we're hooking up raps They download our warez like they took it in packs But we'll never be a kickstart you shouldn't have backed For my last writes, last writes So don't ask why, ask why Time will pass by, pass by For this fast life, fast life It goes back and forth and back and forth Back and forth, bring it back from the source It goes up and down and up and down Up and down, so much love for this sound So much love for this sound Step to the mic everything is a hush Get the crowd going now we're ready to crush Prime state of mind no one ever could touch Enter in adrenaline I'm feeling the rush This moment in time now I wish I could freeze Nowhere else on the planet for me ever to be Exposed to the growth when I planted the seed This is living I've been given everything that I need See to believe it, dream and achieve it Every time I flow share a piece of the secret Let it go so I know with the hope that I keep it Can't imagine what would happen if I ever tried to leave it The best of the rest of my life on the stage Or in between shows writing tracks on the page The man Six Four added fuel to the flame So I give it all I got, Dual Core is the name For my last writes, last writes So don't ask why, ask why Time will pass by, pass by For this fast life, fast life It goes back and forth and back and forth Back and forth, bring it back from the source It goes up and down and up and down Up and down, so much love for this sound So much love for this sound Back and forth and back and forth Back and forth, bring it back from the source It goes Up and down and up and down Up and down, so much love for this sound
