Loving the thoughts that the memories bring Supervillain legends meet superhero kings, and we sing [Hook: int eighty] Who's the man with the plan for the ladies Say it to me now everybody: int eighty The group with the scoop to make you want more Tell me what's their name, come on it's: Dual Core Who makes the beats for the geeks and galore Say it to me now everybody: 6-4 The group with the scoop to make you want more Tell me what's their name, come on it's: Dual Core I was a baby boomer's baby, reminded of it daily Life sorta crazy, born in the 80s Born in the 80s, born in the 80s Life sorta crazy, I was born in the 80s [Verse 2: int eighty] My favorite heroes always caught the crooks Atari 800, shows, and comic books Never hypnotized by the communist lull With Captain America fighting Red Skull Loving the Captain, guess they had enough of him Same thing for He-Man, GI Joe, and Wonder Twins That was it, the girls bought a newer purse Collected every guy from the Masters of the Universe Line up the figures, stage a full battle Outside the gates of my Greyskull Castle Then the next set in the box packed under that Was Lion-O, Panthro, all of the Thundercats Found it one day and quickly tore it open Pulled out the characters plus the Sword of Omens Everyone thinks it, you never hear it spoken The 80s were a great time for kids when we were growing, with emotion [Hook: int eighty] Who's the man with the plan for the ladies Say it to me now everybody: int eighty The group with the scoop to make you want more Tell me what's their name, come on it's: Dual Core Who makes the beats for the geeks and galore Say it to me now everybody: 6-4 The group with the scoop to make you want more Tell me what's their name, come on it's: Dual Core I was a baby boomer's baby, reminded of it daily Life sorta crazy, born in the 80s Born in the 80s, born in the 80s Life sorta crazy, I was born in the 80s [Verse 3: int eighty] I'm burning DVDs and playing them for the kids With some of my favorites, combos and hybrids Take the Transformers, mixed with GI Joe The outcome is Mask with the storyline to go Led by Matt Tracker, trust he's got a plan With the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand VENOM in pursuit on a rush and they're crushing With Miles Mayhem on a path for destruction Another variation where they spun a show off Fighting Rock Wars when they clash with the GoBots Forgive 'cause I know not, never been a show-off Had to mention them 'cause the animation's so hot American Gladiators pushing to the edge (sweet) Through the Eliminator putting kids to bed Nitro and Blaze bring the pain overdue Even though they're human, they were superheroes too, it's the truth [Hook: int eighty] Who's the man with the plan for the ladies Say it to me now everybody: int eighty The group with the scoop to make you want more Tell me what's their name, come on it's: Dual Core Who makes the beats for the geeks and galore Say it to me now everybody: 6-4 The group with the scoop to make you want more Tell me what's their name, come on it's: Dual Core I was a baby boomer's baby, reminded of it daily Life sorta crazy, born in the 80s Born in the 80s, born in the 80s Life sorta crazy, I was born in the 80s

Shadows 03:50
[Verse 1: int eighty] Let's start it off, no need to validate Who shot first, the cycle retaliates Mood got worse, plotting and scheming An informal war that's so below freezing Ruthless, utmost treachery, defeat Nuisance, cutthroat, enemy, deceit Maybe you'd tell me: Who'd want to challenge this? Just two characters, no protagonist Espionage, emergency sirens Strike from behind a curtain of iron New opportunities to prove our immunity Sit so well with the Intel Community Tit for tat all across the board White moves, black moves, back and forth Traps so clever, my oh my Seeking revenge, why ask why, Spy vs Spy [Verse 2: int eighty] Got a bomb in the dresser, hole in the floor A bucket of acid perched above the door (heads up!) Unscrew lightbulbs, prepare for a flash Strike a match in a room full of natural gas Defuse the C-4, reroute the wires Dropped the extinguisher, still caught fire Drained all the water, pipes full of Clorox Plus a live wire hooked up to the doorknob Flip that switch, here comes the truth Man you better not even step in that booth Biological, these guys are survivors Unleash an aerosol of hand sanitizer (fresh!) Tracking the newest stats, laughing when you react Move them back, crash and collapse in a booby trap (heh heh booby) Just know it's coming, venture a guess Plenty possibilities no telling what's next, Spy vs Spy [Verse 3: int eighty] The actuator's sensor is ready to fire The sensor's connected to a segment of wire The wire's attached to the clock That's attached to the key, every tick it turns to unlock Every tock sends current to help the blast resonate Open the package, whole thing detonates Lots of contraptions, put them on ice (I get it) With the price of a Rube Goldberg device A few keepsakes that I need to keep safe Goal of the mission: Transport the briefcase I spy the other guy try to dismantle Plan to get cancelled, handcuff the handle Classified info, secret documents High profiles on targeted monuments Negative, positive, the yin and the yang Trust we get it started with the biggest of bangs, Spy vs Spy

Orbit 04:40
[Intro: int eighty] Hero. Noun. A man of distinguished courage or ability Admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities A person, who, in the opinion others, has heroic qualities Or has performed a heroic act, and is regarded as a model or ideal [Verse 1: int eighty] He stepped out the building, feeling prepared The cool night breeze had a chill in the air "NO SKATEBOARDING" He didn't have time Hopped on his board just ignoring the sign Moving south through the city, tranquil and free Got a whole lot to do, a few places to be An underground spot was the first of his stops Where DJs with chops were making it hot Cruised by an alley, different it seemed Came to a stop after hearing a scream Into the shadows expecting the worst A girl on the ground, a man clutching her purse With one fell swoop the thief fell to the dust The girl thanked our hero and asked who he was He replied, "The name's 6-4" Helped the girl up and they hopped on his board [Chorus: int eighty] Into orbit, no time for retreat Gotta put yourself out there to really be free Into orbit, think big from the start Shoot for the moon, gotta reach for the stars Into orbit, see what I mean? Never let anybody challenge your dream Into orbit, that's where it's at Into orbit. Into orbit (orbit) [Verse 2: int eighty] Leaving the spot, they paused at the door "Find me online, search c64" He stepped out the building, feeling prepared The cool night breeze had a chill in the air "NO SKATEBOARDING" He didn't have time Hopped on his board just ignoring the sign Moving east through the city, tranquil and free Got a whole lot to do, a few places to be Cruised by a cipher, ear to the street Came to a stop after hearing no beat No one was rapping, he had to think quick So he pulled out his laptop, laid down a mix Intensified rhymes from the drums that played Thanks to our hero, the cipher was saved They took inside, brought it up to the stage And got the crowd going with the beats that amaze [Chorus: int eighty] Into orbit, no time for retreat Gotta put yourself out there to really be free Into orbit, think big from the start Shoot for the moon, gotta reach for the stars Into orbit, see what I mean? Never let anybody challenge your dream Into orbit, that's where it's at Into orbit. Into orbit (orbit) [Bridge: int eighty] Now to me, a hero is a person who Makes a significantly positive impact on the lives others A hero changes a person's life for the better The cape and secret identity aren't necessary It's just the distinct demeanor and action [Verse 3: int eighty] Leaving the cipher, the crowd wanted more "Find me online, search c64" He stepped out the building, feeling prepared The cool night breeze had a chill in the air "NO SKATEBOARDING" He didn't have time Hopped on his board just ignoring the sign Moving north through the city, tranquil and free Got a whole lot to do, a few places to be Into the studio, pressing rewind Booted the computer with a beat in his mind Adding the reverb, panning the layers (Flip) Flipping the mix on the kick and the snares Got a tentative high hat, it's super discrete An adamant baseline completed the beat Lined up the EQ, ready for a sequel More fresh sounds that were made for the people [Chorus: int eighty] Into orbit, no time for retreat Gotta put yourself out there to really be free Into orbit, think big from the start Shoot for the moon, gotta reach for the stars Into orbit, see what I mean? Never let anybody challenge your dream Into orbit, that's where it's at Into orbit. Into orbit (orbit)

Day's Work 03:42
[Intro: Reporter] INT EIGHTY, INT EIGHTY! How do you do it? What's an average day like for you? [Intro: int eighty] Check, check (clears throat) Oh, ok (clears throat) [Verse 1: int eighty] It's all in a day's work, I've said it before The crime won't stop so I'm ready for war Rescuing people: adults and children I just saved these women from a burning building Helping out the citizens, fighting off attackers Before that, I apprehended two carjackers Went to the bank just to make a deposit And halted a robbery already in progress So honest, so loyal; fiercely trusted I serve and protect for the general public Cat in a tree (meow), climber on a mountain Pulled a kid out the river 'cause I saw that he was drowning School bus, hazards, it's down to the wire The bus had a blowout; I helped changed the tire Stopped a speeding train that was heading for a crash Flying toward an orphanage sitting on the tracks (woo woo!) [Interview: Reporter, (int eighty)] Wait, somebody placed an orphanage on the railroad tracks? (Yeah, that's right) You mean, physically removed the orphanage, from its foundation, buried in the ground, and placed it on some railroad tracks? And left it there? (Uhh... well... uh... I gotta go) [Verse 2: int eighty] It's all in a day's work, they just can't grasp People don't see how much work I have Crime's on the decline, after a steep rise I've earned a reward, now for some me-time Head to the bar, on the news and I rewind Taking these shots and it's stinging like a beehive Out to the dance floor, drink in my hand I'm cool with the DJ and he's playing jam Groove in my hips, rhythm on the brain Smooth with a chick but she's no Lois Lane Dance a few songs all nice and friendly Go to take a sip and my drink is empty Should I keep dancing? Maybe even score? Feeling pretty good; I could go for one more (bartender!) Need another round, time to refill Jerks at the bar and they're hating on my skills [Conversation: Male Bar Patron, (int eighty)] Did you hear that BS about the orphanage on the train tracks? int eighty is such a liar. (You shut your mouth. int eighty is a great man. He's a hero!) Are you president of his fan club or something? I mean the guy is obviously full of himself (I'll give you a president of the fan club. Right in your face!) [Verse 3: int eighty, (Reporter)] Turn off the treadmill, you're running your mouth He wouldn't shut down so I'm punching him out Quick change the deal 'cause this ain't for real Forget brass knuckles; my skin's made of steel Temper is boiling the fire erods Feeling crass, shatter glass, strike a match and explode Fury in a rage, out the cage like an animal Whoops we're in a bar and the alcohol is flammable Fire everywhere, and everyone's escaping But I knocked a couple out so I guess I better save them Smoke so thick it's like breathing exhaust fumes Gotta find a bathroom for switching up costumes Outfit's changed and I'm back in the fray With 80 on my chest so I'm saving the day (Oh my God, is he alright? What's he have to say?) He's got 3rd degree burns, but I think he'll be ok, little punk [Outro: Reporter] I'm here reporting live from the scene Where our inebriated super hero, int eighty Has lashed out physically at patrons Sent the bar up in flames And knocked an elderly woman unconscious While making his exit Firemen and EMTs are on the scene Back to you, Jon

In Cahoots 02:49
[Verse 1: int eighty] Where's the alarm, right place right time Somehow they know to show up and fight crime Robbing a bank, back alley mugging Is it city-wide surveillance or am I just bugging? Still in progress, crooks caught in action If it's locked down, why does crime still happen? How do they know? Can we really be sure? Probably more cameras than 1984 From the heart of downtown, the neighboring suburbs Railyards set at the city limit outskirts Criminals beware, prepare for a sentence The super hero's always there, the quickest apprehension They know when you're sleeping, it's kind of profound The scary part of it is they know where and how Intelligence network? Informants undercover? Really makes you think, almost makes you wonder like [Chorus: int eighty] Open your eyes, prepare for the truth Super heroes, criminals, they're all in cahoots Did your box get hacked? Are the criminals root? It could've been a super hero, all in cahoots [Verse 2: int eighty] They will admit with words that their mission is a burden They feel a bit disturbed or a little introverted Take a look at Batman, he sticks to his ways By himself in a mansion, alone in a cave He could've been an actor or socialite instead The guy loves darkness, messed up in the head Narc when he catches you, just take the offer A word to describe it? Hmm, "stalker" Long overdue, you've seen all the clues Now put them all together, take a look at the truth And decide for yourself, overturn judgement We should have the police force defending the public Deviants, stalkers, must be a mess-up These are the people we select to protect us? Everybody get it? The script is on the walls I'd rather have the NSA listen to my calls [Chorus: int eighty] Open your eyes, prepare for the truth Super heroes, criminals, they're all in cahoots Did your box get hacked? Are the criminals root? It could've been a super hero, all in cahoots [Verse 3: int eighty] So what if they do you wrong or even rub you raw? They jump the Constitution, 'cause they're above the law Means to an end if you just believe the suffix "Trust the vigilantes" I don't call it justice Seems a bit strange to believe what they say They're private contractors who don't want any pay The light's on upstairs but there's nobody home A few teeth short of a fine-tooth comb Pajamas for costumes, look it's no lie And what about their underwear? It's on the outside Maybe they overslept and had to leave fast But what kind of people put their boxers on last? Capes, masks, knee-high boots Do I need to keep going to reveal further proof? Would you still trust them if you really knew? Might be a super hero but they're in cahoots [Chorus: int eighty] Open your eyes, prepare for the truth Super heroes, criminals, they're all in cahoots Did your box get hacked? Are the criminals root? It could've been a super hero, all in cahoots Open your eyes, prepare for the truth Super heroes, criminals, they're all in cahoots Did your box get hacked? Are the criminals root? It could've been a super hero, all in cahoots

[Intro] I was going to the worst place in the world. And I didn't even know it yet. The emergency destruct system has been activated. Man's got to know his limitations. Think about the future [Verse 1: int eighty] Let me tell you how it started, and how it was we lost Two years ago with the most expensive cost The whole world's in jeopardy, move against the clock Super villains talk of a super evil plot The strongest of bombs that was ever made to devastate Doomsday Device, set the timer then detonate Started with them scheme from the underground supreme Extreme corroboration, super villain teams Coordinated attacks that shift so intricate Vicious, iniquitous, a network of syndicates So many lives were given to save yours As the heroes were summoned to fight and wage war [Chorus: int eighty] Standing in a wasteland with blood on my hands They never had a chance, it's the end of the world All I see is sand for as far as it expands Tell me what's the plan, it's the end of the world Some stayed to fight while the other ones ran Make a final stand, it's the end of the world I see these people saying it's the end of the world The end of the world, it's the end of the world [Verse 2: int eighty] In shock at a battle, so much evil out to get you More and more characters arrive to the rescue Villains got captured, we brought them to justice But their reinforcements were too much sustenance Questionable progress, we're letting it slip Shattered by a forecast we couldn't predict Everyone was there and they're showing their hand I mean every evil character known to man Every villain in the universe is watching the payoff Death and destruction, mayhem and chaos The heroes split up, they're divided and conquered Now evil rules the Earth with regimes of impostors [Chorus: int eighty] Standing in a wasteland with blood on my hands They never had a chance, it's the end of the world All I see is sand for as far as it expands Tell me what's the plan, it's the end of the world Some stayed to fight while the other ones ran Make a final stand, it's the end of the world I hear these people saying it's the end of the world The end of the world, it's the end of the world Standing in a wasteland with blood on my hands They never had a chance, it's the end of the world All I see is sand for as far as it expands Tell me what's the plan, it's the end of the world Some stayed to fight while the other ones ran Make a final stand, it's the end of the world I hear these people saying it's the end of the world The end of the world, it's the end of the world
