This one's for my MCs and real rap fans The true heart of hip hop that still clap hands Who go to the shows, feel the notes in their soul And listen to the wordplay enclosed in the flow Inscribe all the thoughts that they captured dreaming Spitting life into verses, giving words meaning The freestyle began, my intro to rap Making lines rhyme to the beat in a flash Other artists bragged to the bills in their stash But I had a student loan couldn't talk about the cash Plus they had rims they would roll in the street The first car I bought was almost older than me I wrote like a pro, and spit what I know Made a link with Six Four and I continued to grow Imagine the surprise when our eyes identified People shared our interests and listening with pride Nerdcore, geeksta, whatever you may call it Reveal the real meaning, adjective agnostic This one's for my b-boys and skilled graf writers The true heart of hip hop that still craft fire All sorts of reasons to demonstrate skills for Out on the dance floor or up on the billboard Love the graf writers for their piecing and tagging It gave me a reason to enjoy the train passing Felt the inspiration and took to my flatscreen Warez group logos I designed all in ASCII Wild font styles, change colors faded All the groups around, name an acronym I made it Tagged every item in the group that had passed through Memorized the characters, every single value And freestyle was old if I had to tell the truth Then I met Crazy Legs from the Rock Steady Crew He said: Hip hop is you, it's in what you do And it made me realize this is hip hop too This one's for my DJs above and underground The true heart of hip hop that handles the sound Writers' heads nod, b-boys dance around They fuel the MCs please don't cancel them now All wax or digital they've gotta create And somehow they're still out digging in the crates Bassline for mind, use the rhythm as voice Laptop or turntable, weapon of choice Beat juggle, flare, techniques so sick The scratches, the blends, and the fades on the mix Round out the package, finish it completed So much for you, so you see why they're needed Think about the songs that you save and import You'd have an incomplete playlist without Six Four It'd be a bit short, I mean you'd need a few more Because without the DJ there'd be no Dual Core

It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end First things first you'll be seeing a trend Start with the background it leads to the end Another youth story it's about to unfold But this time, this one's closer to home Born with bad intentions or just malicious purpose Alone and growing up almost felt I was a burden You had a short fuse here I am a short circuit We all have flaws and I know nobody's perfect Trouble from the start, it shouldn't be a shocker Glued to computers ever since I was a toddler Tried to boot DOS on the blank screen then Remember me stuffing floppies in our old IBM You came home from work and reacted so quick Floor covered with five-and-a-quarter-inch disks Don't worry yet, the drives were never broken Wait until I started with the phone line and modem It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end Now I'm online, tempted by the options But I'm a teenager with plenty other problems Chemical imbalance body going through the changes Life in the questionable unset stages My friends online they were hacking for fun And provided acceptance, at home I had none Inspired programmer who noticed a draw Viruses, spammers, I coded it all Began to make a name, everybody wants a copy Compress it, encrypt it, and save it to a floppy Slack space, swap, there were more crazy tricks I was serving up warez on a 486 Kept it all a secret, none if it pronounced Then the ISP called and suspended our account Couldn't give it up, had to bypass restrictions Yes there is a substance but it's different from addiction It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end It's not looking good I just keep screwing up What am I doing? My life was a wreck, almost burned to the ground But the case was dismissed before the verdict was found A new person now, look I turned it around So if I made a change you can learn to be proud Cause you got me through to high school, it wasn't a breeze Six years in college and I finished my degrees Shifted to the right track, kicked it into gear Took the skills I developed and I made it a career Average Joe Citizen, my record is clear Benefits and wage, pay my taxes every year I'm sorry that the gray hair will never be undone But at least you can now just be happy for your son It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end It's the beginning of the end

This one This one is for all of my programmers out there All of the developers who push through the extra hours to meet the deadline The security researchers who work the extra shifts on the pentest Those that can't get away and have nothing to get away to Signed the first line, it was just nine to five Quickly realized it became nine to nine Twenty-four-seven-three-sixty-five A process that separated me from my life Need to unplug but you're still online And you've gotta pay the bills every month on time Want all the hours? You can have them all, fine This is my life, so make it all mine It's a road to success, no shortcut for steps Instead, it's just another long day ahead But I've gotta do well, stand out, achieve First person in, last one to leave Time doesn't matter, nothing comes for free Scattered, I'm climbing that ladder to succeeed Factors that change, reacting with the speed Capture that flag, I'm running with the lead After the fact, they didn't get the message Pushing new changes in 11th hour sessions Eat in my cube, breathe in my cube Log a full day, fall asleep in my cube I'm a laborer, worker, nothing like royal Please, my desk lamp burns midnight oil Crush 11 hours and working 7 days Scratching for promotions, scraping for a raise Now you see what I'm talking about Trust me, I feel for you. We've all been there It's like, work is just more work And there's no end to it There's not even a break Bus ride home, I'm just another commoner Embraced every night by the glow of my monitors Can't keep a pet like a house cat or lap dog Only thing sitting on my couch is a laptop No family around, no cousins or brothers No girlfriends, no significant other Alone all the time even when I'm not supposed to be Alone in my apartment, shopping for groceries Alone out in public so nobody notice me Alone and closed out but I can talk about it openly Tried to meet people, it's so much guesswork Gym memberships, online social networks Community service, or drinks with the team The bars and the dance clubs just weren't my scene Nothing feels right, I don't know what it means So I'm back in the office in front of my screen Signed the first line, it was just nine to five Quickly realized it became nine to nine Twenty-four-seven-three-sixty-five A process that separated me from my life Need to unplug but you're still online And you've gotta pay the bills every month on time Want all the hours? You can have them all, fine This is my life, so make it all mine Down to a science, the point I've almost mastered it Such a vicious cycle, can you see the pattern yet No free minutes when I'm always working overtime No I go and try but my life is broke and polarized Work more and more, it's less time to socialize And that's just a gamble, so why try and roll the dice Either in the office or by myself at home at night Plus I stopped believing there's no reason keeping hope alive Now you see there's never time face to face Always spending hours writing queries for a database Or code for a feature, something last-minute Where does free time begin if work doesn't finish Running out of time making hours want to stay There's just 24 a day and I give them all away This is just temporary, that's what they all say Never gonna change, forever the same, always Unplug, unplug, you just need to unplug Unplug, unplug, all work and no play makes a dull boy Unplug, unplug, we just need to unplug Unplug, unplug, all work and no play makes a dull boy Signed the first line, it was just nine to five Quickly realized it became nine to nine Twenty-four-seven-three-sixty-five A process that separated me from my life Need to unplug but you're still online And you've gotta pay the bills every month on time Want all the hours? You can have them all, fine This is my life, so make it all mine Signed the first line, it was just nine to five Quickly realized it became nine to nine Twenty-four-seven-three-sixty-five A process that separated me from my life Need to unplug but you're still online And you've gotta pay the bills every month on time Want all the hours?

[Verse 1: int eighty] Behold the smoke and mirrors see I'm through with the illusion Minds losing any clue when the confusion's so abusive The scapegoats are flamed when these idiots blame I just disregard the ratings on my video games These are red herring flaws in the links that they claim Is it too much to ask for them to think with their brain And when net neutrality fails for the internet Expect your propaganda to receive the same censorship Battles we fought and the casualties lost Still they're blasting off bombs into traffic or cops So just think about reactions when the catalyst stops We see the same end if it's faster or not Cause it's so frustrating when these activists talk Like somewhere's a solution in a magical box Can't understand why I'm having these thoughts Battle back, shatter tracks when the reality's lost [Verse 2: Ill Poetic] Let me tell you on the low-low spot, that My reality is Photoshopped, and All these thugs are just photo ops So I try to hide my eyes like Robocop, now Yeah, I wear my sunglasses at night Trying to find some rum and some blunt ashes on sight The most beautifulest scenery I ever seen Is a jpeg on my computer screen, and I don't want a show I want my MTV and I don't want a song I want the MP3s and I don't want to know how to feel I just want the powder and the pills and I don't need to know my neighbor I got a simulation game where I can make a Cliche, I'm just trying to keep it real Long as I got some real feel I'm good [Verse 3: int eighty] Where do I start again, specified targeting Reactionary charlatan, vocabulary artisan While people kill others in assertion of martyrdom We nitpick politics and split by partisan What should I conclude, did you tell me the truth Was it a hoax for when I vote or when I step in the booth Is the middle class more than what celebrities do Will you represent the youth when the election is through I don't recognize the names at the top of the game But we complain all the same for a positive change So they let the chads hang while they're calling out claims There were more votes for the All-Star game Home of the bravest, every citizen's duty Spending less time on politics than watching a movie I want to leave the Earth as somewhere better to live Do you even know who your representative is

The discussion, they've been thinking it for years A concussion, still ringing in my ears I was talking one night, by a casual chance When someone asked so polite to explain what I am Requested to clarify, staring eyes scared of mine Thinking that my paradise would leave his business paralyzed There am I, terrified his regard Yes, I am a hacker, even says it on my card Harbinger of chaos that would topple a monopoly Cookie cutter character with all the common properties The real question: Did I fit inside the mold How much did it cost for my soul when it was sold A hacker is a concept; a metaphor engineer With good and evil content for left and right hemispheres Black and white for a sub-committee panel Of course, you report Dual Core is dual channel My stereotype, do you really know who I am My stereotype, do I really show what I can My stereotype, your head is buried low in the sand And do I really have to flow to show you folks who I am Another conversation, they've been thinking it for years The overtones of which are still ringing in my ears I was talking one night, by a casual chance When someone asked so polite to explain what I am Is crime just a game, rush and mame, crush and slay When life comes to play, run away, shun the blame Some would say, something may not be right Yes I am a gamer, and I play it every night The signature of crazy, do I scream and shout in my house Immature and lazy, do I hide behind a cop-out The real question was: Is it this that I do best Are there any of us different, or are we just like all the rest A gamer is a shapeshifter driving from the backseat With hand-eye coordination better than an athlete Button presser which you control also Of course you report Dual Core is in the console My stereotype, do you really know who I am My stereotype, do I really show what I can My stereotype, your head is buried low in the sand And do I really have to flow to show you folks who I am How can I change your mind? How can I change your mind? How can I change your mind? You better think quick 'cause we're running out of time This one's an argument, been thinking it for years Anxiety from which is still ringing in my ears I was talking one night, by a casual chance When someone asked so polite to explain what I am The question is operative, cogniscent or positive With words being talkative or weapons for demoloshing Often since confidence is head strong Yes, I am a rapper, even says it on my songs The vision of a failure, a fool as it would seem Who would bet a whole career on a future built of dreams The real question: Is my grammar always mangled Do I end with prepositions, do my participles dangle A rapper is a person represented by a mouth And judged by the concepts and words they talk about Grab a mic making something out of nothing And if you don't like the sound then just hit the skip button My stereotype, do you really know who I am My stereotype, do I really show what I can My stereotype, your head is buried low in the sand And do I really have to flow to show you folks who I am How can I change your mind? How can I change your mind? How can I change your mind? You better think quick 'cause we're running out of time
