01. State Of The Art (vs. DJ Lethal of Limp Bizkit)

Theres no way to find out whats inside you
Until you fall into the hole
You dug for yourself while you slept here
Too young, too selfish, too cold
And when you find out whats been waiting
The moment you open your eyes
Youll see your true reflection
The very first time in your life.

You can not fight whats in you
This will not be denied
You can not fight whats in you
This will not be denied.

Cry to yourself
Nothing will help
Its too late to change whats been done
You do what youve always done best
You run.

Into the hole you fall deeper
Deeper the faster you run
It wont stop until you accept it
Accept everythng that youve done.

You can not fight whats in you
This will not be denied
You can not fight whats in you
This will not be denied.

Cry to yourself
Nothing will help
Its too late to change whats been done
You do what youve always done best
You run.


02. Karma Killer
I scream through the morning
Im kicking the twilight as she comes
Time waits ever dawning
Spooning the thickness out and feeding our open mouths.

The price you pay is always
Too high or too familiar
Sunshine, Karma Killer.

Time waits ever dawning
When youre
Following the animals around (around)
I scream through the morning
Feeding our open mouths and spooning the thickness out.

The price you pay is always
Too high or too familiar
Sunshine, Karma Killer
Too high or too familiar
Sunshine, Karma Killer.

My eyes are weary now
My eyes (my eyes) are weary
My eyes are weary now
Too high or too familiar
Sunshine, Karma Killer.

Too high or too familiar
Sunshine, Karma Killer
Karma Killer, Karma Killer, Karma Killer
Will I ever miss you(...)


03. System

System
System
System

You fell away
What more can I say?
The feelings evolved
I wont let it out
I cant replace
Your screaming face
Feeling the sickness inside.

Chorus:
Why wont you die?
Your blood in mine
Will be fine
Then your body will be mine.

So many words
Cant describe my face
This feelings evolved
So soon to great bounds
I cant relate
to a happy state
Feeling the blood run inside.

Chorus

Why is everything so fucking hard for me?
Keep me down to watch you (?)
Must you tempt me and provoke the ministry?
Keep on trying, Im not done so easily (I will not die)
Why is everything so fucking hard for me? (I will not die)
Why is everything so fucking hard for me? (I will not die).

Chorus (x2)


04. Morning After

Caught up against the wall again
Time to chill in the bar again
Never seize to amaze the night
So I just sleep sleep sleep please dont.

Wake me till the morning after
Wake me till the morning after.

Cut and bruised by the fall again
Lick my wounds like a dog again
Is that a light at the end of the tunnel
That I see I see please let it be but dont.

Wake me till the morning after
Wake me till the morning after
Wake me till the morning after
Im so tired there has got to be an end
To the pain I feel when Im
Awake and alive alive alive alive
And Im dreamin.

Caught up against the wall again
Time to chill in the bar again
Is that a light at the end of the tunnel
That I see I see please let it be but dont.

Wake me till the morning after
Wake me till the morning after
Wake me till the morning after
Im so tired there has got to be an end
To the pain I feel when Im
Awake and alive alive alive alive
And Im dreamin.


05. Walking Dead (vs. DJ Z-Trip)

(Suppose you were to die tonight. What would you say? Do you believe in life after death?)

In the chill of the night,
I can feel my heart racing,
As I run towards the light,
That seems so far away,
Wondering forever, in the darkest of shadows,
Wondering if I will ever see you again.

Wondering if I will ever see you again...

Ill take your love (Ill take your love),
Ill take your hate (take your hate),
Ill take your desire.

Ill take the world,
When it turns on you (when it turns on you),
Ill set it afire.

(The walking dead, the walking dead.)

Digging in the dirt,
I can feel you getting closer,
Steadying my hands through the blistering pain,
Anxiously awaiting for the earth to reveal you,
Wondering if I will ever see you again.

Wondering if I will ever see you again...

Ill take your love (Ill take your love),
Ill take your hate (take your hate),
Ill take your desire.

Ill take your heart,
Ill take your pain (Ill take your pain),
Ill bring you to life.

Ill bring you to life...

(The walking dead, the walking dead.)

Ill bring you to life...

Ill take your love (Ill take your love),
Ill take your hate (take your hate),
Ill take your desire.

Ill take the world,
When it turns on you (when it turns on you).

(The walking dead, the walking dead.)

Ill take your love (Ill take your love),
Ill take your hate (take your hate),
Ill take your desire.

Ill take your heart,
Ill take your pain (Ill take your pain),
Ill bring you to life.


06. Let Down
And the tears fall like rain
Down my face again
Oh the words you wouldn't say
And the games you played
With my unfoolish heart
Oh I should have known this from the start.

Oh the winter and spring
Going in hand in hand
Just like my love and pain
How the thought of you cuts deep within the vein
Oh this brand new skin stretched across scared terrain.

I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my life again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road
So I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my lies again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road.

All those years down the drain
Love was not enough when you want everything
What I gave to you and now the end must start
Oh I should have listened to my heart.

Cause I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my life again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road
So I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my lies again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road.

Oh...

I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my life again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road
So I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my lies again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road.


07. Home Sweet Home
You know I'm a dreamer
But my heart's of gold
I had to run away high
So I wouldn't come home low
Just when things went right
It doesn't mean they were always wrong
Just take this song and you'll never feel.

Left all alone
Take me to your heart
Feel me in your bones
Just one more night
And I'm comin' off this
Long & winding road.

I'm on my way
Well I'm on my way
Home sweet home
Tonight tonight
I'm on my way
I'm on my way
Home sweet home.

You know that I've seen
To many romantic dreams
Up in lights, fallin' off
The silver screen
My heart's like an open book
For the whole world to read
Sometimes nothing-keeps me together
At the seams.

I'm on my way
Well I'm on my way
Home sweet home
Tonight tonight
I'm on my way
Just set me free
Home sweet home.


08. Jane Says

Jane says
Im done with Sergio
He treats me like a ragdoll
She hides
The television
Says I dont owe him nothing,
But if he comes back again
Tell him to wait right here for me or,
Try again tomorrow.

"Im gonna kick tomorrow...
Im gonna kick tomorrow..."

Jane says
Have you seen my wig around?
I feel naked without it
She knows
They all want her to go
But thats ok man
She dont like them anyway
Jane says
Im going away to Spain when I get my money saved
Im gonna start tomorrow

"Im gonna kick tomorrow...
Im gonna kick tomorrow..."

She gets mad
And she starts to cry
Takes a swing but she cant hit!
She dont mean no harm
She just dont know...
What else to do about it
Jane goes
To the store at eight
She walks up on St. Andrews
She waits
And gets her dinner there
She pulls her dinner
From her pocket
Jane says
"Ive never been in love no"
She dont know what it is
She only knows if someone wants her

"I only want em if they want me,...
I only know they want m..."

Jane says...
Jane says...

She gets mad
And she starts to cry
Takes a swing but she cant hit!
She dont mean no harm
She just dont know...
What else to do about it.

Jane says...
Jane says...


09. Rock and Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This) Part 2

I am the original DJ Jazzy Jay from the Mighty Mighty Zulu Nation
First Ill say my name is um, original scratch creater Grand Wizard Theodore
For those who dont know, I started back out in 74. Africa Bambata, Disco King Mario, Cool Herc, Grandmaster Flash and you know, some of the pioneers who did it back then you know
Hip - hop is universal man, it all depends upon on what you do
Hip - hop is like what you would call the bastard child of a lot of different forms of music
I just feel good that a lot of rock bands are like, are like recognizing you know, the culture
We used to play these beats because they used to drive us on the dance floor
And people dont really know that its a rock record until like the guitars come in and stuff like that
We didnt have no hip - hop beats back in the days, we had to take it from everywhere we could get it from
Just trying to take it to another level
Thats what keeps the music new and keeps it fresh
As far as you know rock is concerned man, I think rock is, you know, a big part of hip - hop man
Rock helped influence hip - hop, hip - hop helped influence the world.


Shh
Yeah
Hey
Shh
You hear me?
Ok
Listen


Yo
Its like a triple stage darkness
Listen and drift
Every muscle in your skin
Starts to shake and shift
You can hate the gift
But my phrases daze ya
Click, spray ya face
When I spit
I mean it
Ya just too conceited
Repeating and repeating
Your a thugd out gangsta
PIMP stil ya believe it
Seems like theres too much Pac
We dont need it
Im cool on your heat
You can keep it
Its not a big secret
This is a game ya cant win
Ya singin the same thing
But were bringin the yin
So just close your eyes
And pretend again
That ya skin isnt as thin
As the skin ya in.


(Bitch)


Give me a second
Just to spell it out
So
Nobody can twist
What Im takin about
I dont
Have to fake anything I feel
Because
We both know
Every word is real
So
Give me a second
Just to spell it out
So
Nobody can twist
What Im takin about
I dont
Have to fake anything I feel
Because
We both know
Every word is real.


Right about now, the funk soul brother
Check it out now, the funk soul brother (Handsome boys!)
Right about now, the funk soul brother
Check it out now, the funk soul brother.


I got the skills of titanium, straight to the cranium
Try to play me and we can go to war like Iranians
A D-pack, I speak rap, as long as the beat phat
My chain be off the meat rack
Lord finesse, dont harass the guards with four bars and piss on like half your squad
So the savage, I dont gain raps
I dont harass the people playing russian roulette with automatics
See, on the street Im top the rank
Three words, when I get the dice, stop the bank
Bet against me, youll get your cash
Leaving my street team, for nothing but ass whoopins
Hard hitters (Handsome Boys)
The type to sport the chicks on the arm like John Ritter
The bomb beat, being stabbin the third
Better play like Jehova witness, just spread the word, spread the word, spread the word.


The sky opens wide
Swallowing again
Once I am inside
Im lost and cant pretend
These pictures in my mind
Are not a part of me
These memories hold me tight
Stil I can hardly breathe
(Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe)
I can hardly breathe
(Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe)
I can hardly stop the memories.


Nothing I can say or do will
Take away what Ive been through
What you were is what Ive come to be
Nothing you can say to me
Will take away these memories
What you were is what Ive come to be.


10. Wonderful

If I were to die this morning
Would you tell me things that you wouldn't have?
Would you be my navigator?
Would you take me to a place we could hide?

As I'm fallin' out
I wonder what I lost
Must be movin' on
Know I'll be waitin' here alone

I wanna ask you to forgive me
I haven't been the best with all that I had
Wish I'd only laid beside you
I think I spread myself a little too thin

As I'm fadin' out
I don't feel anything at all
Think I'm movin' on
Know you'll be safe but not alone

You're the everything
That led me to believe...


11. Slow Ya Roll (Young Buck feat. Chester Bennington)

Young Buck:
Heyyyy! I gotta slow down
I said we gotta slow down.

Let me take you back to high school, ninety-fo'
When at least when a nigga had time to go
Walk to the bus stop, sellin rocks on the way
Lil' bad motherfucker with a pocket full of yay
Fell in love with a shorty that was bad
I would go and skip class just so I could see that ass
But she was too fast, and I was too slow
Cause she wanted a nigga who already had dough
She found her a man who was like twenty-fo'
But what she didn't know that he had plenty hoes
She was too young; so now he got a new one
Cause shorty went and bought her a new gun
See when she catch this nigga she gon' do somethin
Not fight, but shorty gon' shoot somethin
But she never got a chance, a change of plans
Shot herself in the back puttin the gun in her pants.


Young Buck & Chester Bennington:
Live life young nigga, quit tryin to be grown
You gon' miss momma when she dead and gone
So slow your roll - slow it down my nigga
Slow your roll - slow down my nigga
Live life lil' mama, quit tryin to be grown
You gon' miss daddy when he dead and gone
So slow your roll - c'mon gotta slow down
Slow your roll - think you gotta slow down.


Young Buck:
I got a graveyard tatted on my arm
So I'ma just start with my uncle William Hahn
My momma only brother, he served in the Navy
He lost his life because the war made him crazy
My nephew Shannen, 15 years old
When I think how he died I get real cold
Cause they found him in a field with some crack stones
There was no flesh, it was just bones
I was just home, with my cousin Craig
And then I got a phone call said they found him dead
So what's next, ain't went to Bizz funeral yet
Instead of one casket I need two of them shits
It don't quit, just when you think I'm seein better days
My auntie just find that she got AIDS
And it's fucked up, cause her life don't end
And she locked up, so she dyin in the pen', damn.


Young Buck & Chester Bennington:
Live life young nigga, quit tryin to be grown
You gon' miss momma when she dead and gone
So slow your roll - slow it down my nigga
Slow your roll - slow down my nigga
Live life lil' mama, quit tryin to be grown
You gon' miss daddy when he dead and gone
So slow your roll - c'mon gotta slow down
Slow your roll - think you gotta slow down.


Chester Bennington:
This can't be life, we're living
Cause I don't wanna live no more
I don't wanna live no more
This can't be life, we're living
Cause I don't wanna live no more
I don't wanna live no more
This can't be life we're living
Cause I don't want it no more, no more
This can't be life we're living
Cause I don't want it no more
No more.


Young Buck & Chester Bennington:
Live life young nigga, quit tryin to be grown
You gon' miss momma when she dead and gone
So slow your roll - slow it down my nigga
Slow your roll - slow down my nigga
Live life lil' mama, quit tryin to be grown
You gon' miss daddy when he dead and gone
So slow your roll - c'mon gotta slow down
Slow your roll - think you gotta slow down.
