Gangbusters
Back in the old days when gangsters were all the rage
And crime was the front page of news and TV....
A group known to no one who's blows were all low ones
The cops had shit to go on they had no leads....

Drive by shootings
Murders at will...
Pay for protection
Or have yourself killed...

Gangbusters...

Guys like Al Capone who loved being unknown
Made themselves at home and still got away...
The law couldn't catch him or none of his hit men
So he died in prison for taxes unpaid...

Screw prohibition
Crimes go unsolved
Elliot Ness
Couldn't wrap up the mob...

Hey Ho- Who the gangbusters
Hey yo- You the gangbusters
That's Right- We the gangbusters...

Some say crime don't pay but they didn't feel that way
And so I would have to say that I do agree...
The gangbusters in the past proved they were there to last
By knife or shotgun blast for the world to see

Expect The Unexpected
Now you never know when it's your time
It's always there in the back of your mind
Read it in the paper see it on TV
Never think it could happen to me
Accidents occur we don't know why
Just look what happened to Princess Di
One car crashed and the whole world cried
No time to say goodbye
Won't see your future in a crystal ball
Your psychic friends can't help you at all
Can't buy time at a shopping mall
The writing's on the wall
Struck by lighting, fall in a well
It sounds far fetched but you never can tell
When you're swimming with sharks that you can't repell
No one can hear you yell...

You never know where
You won't know how
When you least expect it
Expect the unexpected

Boom! What a terrible sound
Planes go up, and crash back down
You never thought when you left the ground
That you would not be found
Took a big chance when you made that bet
Laid it on the line now you're starting to sweat
This is one day you'll never forget
Cash in your pockets and no regrets
Fly in the sky, or sail in a boat
It don't matter which way you go
Titanic, don't panic,
There's other ways to cross the Atlantic
Don't be surprised by what you hear
Things aren't always as they appear
The unexpected ain't nothing to fear
The truth is always clearback to top
Whateverman
Who is the one that don't need a gun
Livin' with the scum in the city slums
Mixin' with the players, bushers and bums
Keepin' it groovy with everyone
Out on the block is where the action's hot
They keep it moving and it just won't stop
The wolves in sheep's clothes, good people with hope
When it's DOG EAT DOG, they go for the throat

I'm your Whateverman, that's just what I am
I'll help you if I can, to come through with your plan
Whateverman that's just what I am
I'll help you if I can to work it out

Easy women and sleazy men
On Amsterdam Ave. and 110
The times are fast, the change is loose
Anything goes in the land of abuse

I'm your Whateverman, that's just what I am
I'll help you if I can, to come through with your plan
Whateverman that's just what I am
I'll help you if I can to work it outback to top
Modern Day Devils
One life to get it right, there's no time to waste
One track in this rat race, keep up with the pace
Who is sure the rich or the poor
I'll take my time and be secure
Time is now we're all going down
I'll go for mine someway or somehow
Modern Day Devils pushing things to dangerous levels
Latter Day Saints promises for those who wait

One way to walk a path following a code
Another way is to blaze a trail driven by your hopes
Chance we take, a choice to make
Answer to who at the end of the day
Living in faith we just have to wait
Surrender your will to a power that's great

Modern Day Devils pushing things to dangerous levels
Latter Day Saints promises for those who wait

God helps those who help themselves...

Pick your fight, choose your side
There's a thin line between wrong and what's right
Time will tell, you'll see for yourself
Don't bet with your life, it's bad for your health...back to top
Get Up
Don't just sit there, get up!

Check the groove, bron to make you moove.
Paid some dues never sang the blues.
How I choose to give the love to you
Take it it on the road all across the globe.

We've got people feeling hot from state to state,
beats hit harder than a heavy weight.
Others are lame, playing the game, wordly acclaim,
that's how were straight just gaining the fame.

Ah yeah, I got something I wanna say,
no no, don't just sit there, get up! get up!

Now you know that we will rock every show from here to tokyo.
Bond blood brothers with sisters, I love ya, never uncover, let you discover.
How we got you open, let me make a point, we ain't the ones who gonna disappoint.
What's understood, you wanna feel good, carry on that vibe back in your neighbourhood.

Who got the hip that can make you hop?
Who holds the rock and can make it roll?
Who brings it live with the party vibe?
put your hands high, shut your eyes and scream!

Here's a little something for the worldly wise,
as we continue to galvanise.
We let these fakers scratch their heads,
as these bakers proceed to ake the bread rise.back to top
In The City
East side, west side
larcency and homicide
people trying to survive.
Prostitution, retribution
toxic waste and air pollution
politics: no solution.

I've come from the other side of town
This concrete jungle's got me down
I feel the heet, from the street

Live in the city,
die in the city.
Talk is cheap and the air smells shitty.
Laugh in the city,
cry in the city.
It's my home, but it sure ain't pretty.

Uptown, downtown
On the streets and underground
People trying to get around.
Skyscrapers, money makers
New York Knicks and L.A. Lakers
One too many circuit brakers.

Live in the city,
die in the city.
Talk is cheap and the air smells shitty.
Laugh in the city,
cry in the city.
It's my home, but it sure ain't pretty.back to top
Right Out
Listen up party people all in the place,
I've been around the world like Puffy and Mace.
Wake up with the moon sleeping with the sun,
this life of style ain't for everyone.
Close your eyes, open up your mind,
I can clearly see you're all so blind.
Everythings for sale, name your price,
the sneakers on my feet are nice.

If you're not going up,
then you gotta get down.
Put your head in the clouds
and your feet on the ground.
If you're not coming in,
then you gotta get out,
right out, right out, right out.

Keep it on time, always running late,
even when I'm early hurry up and wait.
Totally sain, fully out of my head,
I'm still alive and I'm the living dead.
Black or white, left or right,
smokin' and drinkin', night after night.
Top of the world, living on the edge,
you can fall right of the ledge.

If you're not going up,
then you gotta get down.
Put your head in the clouds
and your feet on the ground.
If you're not coming in,
then you gotta get out,
right out, right out, right out.

Right out is what I'm talking about,
right out is what I'm talking about.

Fast forward, future to the past rewind,
A.D. to B.C. , nothing but time.
Top to the bottom, front to back,
all 12 sings of the Zodiac.
Asking everybody from east to west,
y'all wanna know who's style's the best.
Telling all the people in the north and south,
that this is what we're talking about.

If you're not going up,
then you gotta get down.
Put your head in the clouds
and your feet on the ground.
If you're not coming in,
then you gotta get out,
right out, right out, right out.back to top
One Day
Had to run from my home if you can call it that,
Grabbed my cd's and an overstuffed backpack.
Things got hot with my moms and pop,
Night after night they blew up the spot.
Throwing plates and pots, shit's got to stop man,
Gotta break out let the pressure drop.
Too extreme kid when you're only a teen,
Can't believe what they're putting me in between.

Maybe one day it will all make sense,
A tight offense is still the best defense.
Don't even know if I can trust my friends,
Taking anything just to make this end.
Cheap wine, hustles, drugs and streetcrime,
Sleeping at the flicks turning tricks hard times.
Wake up the streets calls out my name,
Should be in school, but I'm beggin for change.

Keep things moving by showing and proving,
On the street by myself what the hell am I doing?
Somehow one day, someway anyway,
Better look out world I got a lot to say.
It's my time to shine, need to get what's mine,
Make a move to the future leave the past behind,
There's a pie in the sky, gonna get a piece,
I wanna be at peace.back to top
True Color
Gave you all that I had
I let you come and go as you please,
never once did I ask for anything in return,
except to have what was coming to me.
You broke a friendship that was based on trust
and tried to pull the wool right over my eyes.
I can't see how such a lying , cheating son of a bitch,
could have ever been a friend of mine.

Are you so blind that you can't see,
look at what you've done to me.
All of this time I called you my friend,
now I see your true colors showing in the end.

Good times and bad times took a turn for the worst,
but looking back on it now,
wonder why somehow I could ever hitten all the hurts.
Took something from me that you can't give back,
it was yours as much it was mine,
but in the end I think you've got what was coming to you,
I got love you got nothing but time.

Are you so blind that you can't see,
look at what you've done to me.
All of this time I called you my friend,
now I see your true colors showing in the end.

Left you to your own devices
and I see trust is just a word you take for granted,
you never had the balls to stand and fight me.
Cause you know that my feet have been firmly planted.
I always had your back we'd find a way out you know,
the two of us could never be kept down.
I never understand the path you've chosen,
but I will not back down.back to top
In Time (Growing Came)
We live just for today,
now is not yesterday,
tomorrow's another day in live.
I heard that growth is slow,
that's not the way it goes,
variety's the spice of life.

My life,
We're not the same, growing came,
Who can explain why we change?

The wheel in motion now,
prepare for ups and downs,
sunshine and dark and cloudy skies.
Those things we want to say,
Allways seem to fade away,
This pain is what we recognize.

In time,
We're not the same, growing came,
try to maintain even plain.

There's a rhyme for every reason,
a time for every season,
to grow in our lives it's just natural.
Move with the transition, constantly in motion,
modify the model, feel the physical mutation.

The body grows along with the mind,
compel the soul with cycles and lines.
Sensation, pain you feel in your brain
Reduce the strain embrace the gain.back to top
