Track Name: lil yacht rocky
Back in 2015 i had a notion
What if i were john b's sloop kristopher krossing frank ocean
Lil yacht rocky hot boxing emotions
Im a badddd scientist popping potions
You can find me pining for explosions
Your love is the rhythm of my devotion
Our ship is so extravagantly golden
But oh shit something frozen's approaching

Lets party anyways who cares if we are sinking
Like symphonies our sympathies are forever unblinking
Spend every day and every night with glasses clinking
But when the party ends will you remember thinking
This was all a dream serenaded by stars twinkling
A suitcase of songs from which no one gets an inkling
Our hearts by their names we will be forever screaming
Our now ghostly frames  invisibly harmonizing
Fall asleep on the keyboard texting memes to my bestie
Just 87 #s and this all bears repeating yes it all bears repeating 
Track Name: just like bart
whats up everybody i think dogs should vote
i think frogs is woke, shadow the hedgehog does coke
lady your log just spoke, i know my road hogs is broke
oh god I’m no joke, i just forgot to decloak
be wary ill bury you just like a gary oak
go slow bro I’m slow king in a land of slow pokes
im ricky demanding smokes, in the sand with no coasts
smell of blood and some crows in the branches of liveoaks,
lil weezy awoken, i feel it needs to be spoken
from the heavens I’m heading to where the bad people goin
im in the business of knowin what sorts of crystals your growin
and now my pistols is showin colt 45 and I’m rollin
the most wonderful thing about saitama is that he’s saitama and still shonen
but i think we need more reverse harem anime
hey alex siddig I just wanna be your haram bae
i must say I’m thirsty i just want love in the worst way
heard your girl say its her bursday alf’d the cat til i heard mercy
res the squad like erryday, a royal wedding I’m burgundy


We about those dirty boys
and Herby noids and
now it's time to pick your poison
Randy Johnson out here roidin
Handy tossing baseball boys and
Climbin cows and standing poised and
Bat one thousand im exploitin
Thats full house heads im just toyin
Turbo vicki im employin
Dicky cheney im destroyin
It gets zany when they point and
Click a face and then start draggin
Im about to _____ a dragon
Gil whats up with bilbo swaggins
I no yunk i sooper swaggin
Final pam im uber laggin
Trash hulk look so stupid askin
Metal husband true romancin
Roachie gone from too much dancin
Forest of sons two hundred cans and
Ghost boys summoned necromancin
Whitchy arbys dark soul having
pizza, Harvey, louis anderson
Squirtle squad the hottest fashion
Failed to golf so please no laughin
Pebble rock professional wrasslin
Spooky kubuki Toucan danning
Sheppards horror face expandin
Daytrader vader must fight smart
Wowzers bowsers just like bart
Track Name: masc off
percocets molly percocets
certain death
messing with my set
represent
that stefan urkel set
catch me dead
before fuckin with the hets
mask on fuck it masc off
mask on when i fuck its masc off

welcome to the unlicensed neitzsche reader
reveal myself as a life ending shiva feeder
greatest of all time defending pizza eaters
pay me a gd gillion for my killer features
measure your lifes worth in millimeters
fuck a knife i just might have to spill a heater
we those never stop the fight until defeaters
approximate my (moonrise) kingdom for a tilda free verse

oh swinton
she went in
so listen
the vision
is risen
rebeca dearborn is spittin
ancient one
omission
wilin out
white witchin
god help you
if that shoe went missing
adapting
the origins
of orchid sins
Valerie Thomas is wondering
who’s andy Kaufman’s is this
what pursuits are loftier than this
woman of your dreams would not be your miss

do not come for me with some bullshit and miss
ill rot in plumb trees before from you ill take this
a shot and some weed on a need to smoke basis
raw disbelief when i snatched the masks from their faces
Track Name: hecka tired
We were renters never buyers
Re-doers and 2nd tryers
These days im two words hecka tired
Our tears fill sewers like storms expired
Our fears the ghostly forms we aquired
Haunting old family fotos in matching normie attire
We were Born to aspire to something bigger than ourselves
But In the mathematics of compassion our figures were withheld
And I miss being held by something other than depression or anxiety
And i miss you getting high with me
watching cartoons in their entirety
love yet looms like the fire left inside of me
Unfanned and unstoked and choking entirely
Traumas of our youth sadly standard variety
fake scared for every single game of hide-and-seek
Awkward as young loves and the words they tried to speak
But change is one thing i need you to describe to me
If a revolution is what we need than tell me why can't we
Rearrange the space in our hearts to be more accommodating
Of love for each other and forgiveness for ourselves
Track Name: last days
Meet me where the sidewalk ends
You freaky gurl lets get higher then
Light leaking through this wider lens
Smile pichu give us a brighter den
Like peters are to spidermen
Theyre the tonys to my ironmen
Gibronies that theyre sireing
These Phonies finna get fired man
Zambonies gettin tired legs
Cleaning all the ice im wired in
Now beauty i stay mired in
its your lexicon im admirein'
Puttin hexes on these lighterskins
All my exes be like fire gems
Snailmail sexts ill try and send
This week and next im tryin to spend

In your bedroom while my head swoons
With thoughts of us getting together soon

But honestly im afraid of what might happen
You could fall in love as easy as laughing
I dont mean to be acting
but it seems that you're lacking
All the feats that im stackin
while yr seeking new action
heartbeats im romancing
when im speaking this fancy
im sinking those panties
flooding all of east lansing
phd in necromancy
you nurse joy and me just a chansey

unlike battery acid im so hella caustic
Such flattering assets with a tongue so toxic
Made saturn's rings spin on a cosmic cross stitch
My staggering spit made god agnostic

He said im sorry but your princess is in another castle
I said what do you take me for some kind of asshole
Toad, the one i came here to save was you b
i just wanna make sure everythings gucci
a problematic rapper? Bitch i might be
no problem actin dapper but these liches tryin to fight me
goblin tactics trappers sewing stitches in the night see
We them awesometastic scrappers talkin witches of the lightning
I just want you to like me
can i find the right meme?
Can i make the light sing?
Did i wake your heart strings?
Can i be keith haring and revolutionize an art scene?
So Futuristic we got them smart genes
Weapon X sick all day we heart Jeans
Track Name: ba sing se
its a long long way to ba sing se
when my swan song plays I’m on my way
in the post bong blaze of a by-gone age
im in that go strong phase on these slow dog days

This is the fuck Richard Dawkins selfish meme
Lord of oceanic crustaceans talking shellfish kings
Abraham and monty fightin hellfish mean
Bilbo invisibly stalking elvish things
But fellowship seems inelegantly teemed
to irrelevancies of under developing dreams
my melanin seems to cycle from season to ceasing
each time increasing the weight of their reaching
i know that I’m preaching to the choir but i require
to inquire how exactly it is you suppose i get them to sing?

but its a long long way to ba sing se
when my swan song plays I’m on my way
in the post bong blaze of a by-gone age
im in that go strong phase on these slow dog days

Oh look a self deprecating rapper
Off books shelved replicating trappers
Like eureka Seven riding wavy trappers
phasing after evading capture still die like renton’s mom
Choosing life like renton, tom
Fuck white knights like Obi-wan
Just like Big fish in little ponds
I just might be a motherfucking megalodon

but its a long long way to ba sing se
when my swan song plays I’m on my way
in the post bong blaze of a by-gone age
im in that go strong phase on these slow dog days
Track Name: transformative
Tell such tall tales im abe like Simpson
y’all know without fail bout to go ape like Winston
fidget fire sale Gotta have my vape like griffin
on a horse thats pale doomsday like griffith
Perchance you need me to be more specific
Enhance the breed could i be more monolithic
Visionary pedantist call me stanley rubric
visions of atlantis nah call me danny two ships

Forever biting the hand of any man tryin to feed me
Hope to christ you understand how much you need me

Optimistic prime im trans-formative
It feels sometimes your allyship's performative
Tell my why yr ships heteronormative
catch me out here with calcifer yelling fuck the pigs
not the animal but badge bearers where randy orton lives

black comedy call me Hannibal
Like a cantankerous cruel cannibal
tear you up like a danimal
in a praying mantis' mandibles
harder than a panda's school
in the afterlife intangible
hit detroit like sandoval
rapp game understandable

hair stay unmanagable
this talent pool unfathomable
finding what was imangable
like an mclass planet thats habitable
so far from fashionable
philosophies ineradicable
to my surprise before our eyes see the moon arise
from the hand of wolves (where?)
like vip said y'all cowards
like aquaman i got powers
one suited with both bouers
you can't use that word its ours
leave your family needing flours
hustle so hard i need 3 showers
im a wizard fight in the towers
youre the village my dragon devours

in other words im flawless
yall be the birds who're clawless
im babe ruth i called this
i stay couth like naw miss
Eff straight dudes who are all cys
ill take gay youth with a draw or lysp
ive paid dues on all this
what i say soothes the nauseous
Track Name: down with the dm
i seen yr girl roll a 3 and
i seen yr pally skip that feat and
so i listened for the DM
7 goblins you don’t see em
is that your cleric, hate to be him (whoo)
It goes down with the DM (it go down)
It goes down with the DM (it go down it go down)
It goes down with the DM (it go down)
It goes down with the DM (it go down it go down)

i tell her check that door for traps (boom)
or ask the mage for maps if its cool
(whoo) girl my DM hating (dm hating)
on some check your strength rating
roll at least a 12 for saving
but this treasure you ain’t taking (you aint taking)
wanna be gods in the making (in the making)
when you came down here (all hope was forsaken)

i seen yr girl roll a 3 and
i seen yr pally skip that feat and
so i listened for the DM
7 goblins you don’t see em
is that your cleric, hate to be him (whoo)
It goes down with the DM (it go down)
It goes down with the DM (it go down it go down)
It goes down with the DM (it go down)
It goes down with the DM (it go down it go down)

be careful who your messing with I’m a dungeon master
Oozebane caped with a 1000 skulls who’s asking
left your party now boy they facing disaster
born fighting liches could i level any faster
legendary witches naming naming potions after me
bring your armies to fight and watch em to turn to ashes b
the devastation wrought on you all almost sad to see
the greatest dragon mage ever tell me who coming after me??

don’t you hate when you ambushed (petty)
man this DM aint for everybody (rules)
i love the game i love the game (i love the game)
I’m addicted to it, bet you feel the same (feel the same)
Track Name: last days (secret of mana)
Walk in to the party yellin dicks out for harembe / my record on the d sticks out like dikembe / deaf to the bullshit white men say / yeah these are crabs... Crabs for my sensei/ this is mental like sense8 / 1000 tentacles like hentai / im tentacool on a long day / dunkin on these yunks like my name was nnamdi / we them mighty ducks like dallas bombay / all out of fucks to give what you goin to say

Meet me where the sidewalk ends
You freaky gurl lets get higher then
Light leaking through this wider lens
Smile pichu give us a brighter den
Like peters are to spidermen
Theyre the tonys to my ironmen
Gibronies that theyre sireing
These Phonies finna get fired man
Zambonies gettin tired legs
Cleaning all the ice im wired in
Now beauty i stay mired in

All the feats that im stackin
while yr seeking new action
heartbeats im romancing
when im speaking this fancy
im sinking those panties
flooding all of east lansing
phd in necromancy
you nurse joy and me just a chansey


When i fucks with physics the laws get more lax / my words carry more weight than the worlds biggest snorlax / Come at me son yr gonna need more VATS / carried my town for so long im getting a sore back / their love for me like a tree to the lorax / My lyrics paint pictures akin to a Rorschach /  my bones are telling me bad weathers on the forecast / a storms rolling in this is just the calm before that

unlike battery acid im so hella caustic
Such flattering assets with a tongue so toxic
Made saturn's rings spin on a cosmic cross stitch
My staggering spit made god agnostic

He said im sorry but your princess is in another castle
I said what do you take me for some kind of asshole
Toad, the one i came here to save was you b
i just wanna make sure everythings gucci

Can i be keith haring and revolutionize an art scene?
So Futuristic we got them smart genes
Weapon X sick all day we heart Jeans
Track Name: together always (secret of mana)
If music were food id be taco Pastorius
Hold onto yr breath ill show what the story is
with my batleth you know im victorious
rap battles to the death oh so glorious
From here to the gamma quadrant im steady notorious
If rap were the nba theyd be callin me the warriors
Smoke so much hydro im resembling vaporeons
Those other emcees are corny as metachlorians
But baby baby thats very seldom how our story ends
Just maybe lately im Harry seldon, psychohistorian
Steamin up some hams you know i might go for four of them
Spit fire in the kitchen thats where aurora borealis is
Im gonna be all up in them bones like david boreanis is
Haters cant handle this, anons just be some rando cis
Im a beer like dark horse and they're just a can of piss
Spend all of my days steady firing up some cannabis
Honey i shrunk the rappers tell me where the fuck rick moranis is?
Im cooler than dave coulier and my exes they alanises
Im More mythical and magical than multiple antlantis's
The only thing you want like bamboo to a pandas wish
Romance like gomez and the mic's my hand to kiss
Spit rhymes so tight drizzy just might be a fan of this
Some times at night get busy just lighting candles n shit
If Rna stores memories im resorting to canabalism
Risk kuru for sulu in a fubu im hidetusugu's manic visions
Like brandon or bruce ill prolly die to bullet or an anyurism
A dandy fop but i made her panties drop with my fanciful mannerisms
Still crust as fuck tho like my name was antischism
Sim city archipelagos my power plants be fission
I might just kill all the white men take back the land we missin
Im Diego's street art and they're banksys vandalisms
Like the second coming of yeezus and hes risen
Built a religion for giant robots called it animeism
Alls right with with the world and gods up in his heaven
Threat level dragon when im hittin the road again
Like shang tsun out here looking for some souls to bend
Other rappers words are last years memes im so over them
Like neil in the 80s its the weight of the world im shoulderin'
Tho ive been there once couldnt tell you where denver starts and boulder ends
Rockin california fishes like them pennsylvania colder pens
I spit fire like dylon and i left the studio smolderin
Sitch is Dire like sylons you used to know as older friends
Minds expired with prions when i take theirs skulls and open em
Im entirely high on the spirit taking time up and foldin it
My lifes a love letter and i dont know wether to hold or send
Honestly this rap shit has been overwhelmingly soberin

Got mad stacks and fat swishas
Squared up like dad kisses
Struck out on bad misses
Drugged out on rap disses
Shrugged out like atlases
Lugged out like mattresses
Bugged out by bad witches
Hunks out like manwiches
Yunks out im the sooper swagest
Hangin out on agent coopers fap list
Can i get a lil dip a lil dip nah gimme scoop of that shit
Old timey strongman alley oopin that bit
Im an Anime rapper like a Lupin that spit
Track Name: i wont forget (secret of mana)
Trying to figure out what its worth to me / a good nights sleep versus one with emergencies /a life full of uncertainties or at least one where i dont have to keep skirtin these / letters that keep coming from the galactic government / oh would that i could just hop in a spaceship that was hoverin / Over a quagmire thats covered in / my anxieties of actually smothering/ anyone with the audacity to even consider loving me/ half a dozen schemes later im still suffering under the pretense of discovering the way the air feels whens its thundering / now her heart steals when its plundering / how your body reels when its under these / ursine coverings / my love a forest and you’re lumbering

a beast ascending / it beats pretending / i dont need some mending / i know its these endings / i hope keep depending / the notes we are bending / are so freaking trending / im overextending / yet low key transcending /the woes were befriending / to show off our spending / but no more depending / on old words for fending / off cold war contendings / we soldier these ten speeds / to hold our impending / fox moulder defending / bipolar suspendings
Track Name: mythic invasion (secret of mana)
Wake up depressed at my lack of competition dreams have me despondent wishing yall were more than some mole men underlings its got me left wondering how i ended up so sundering every bet im covering. I am to rap what dan harmon is to st st st stuttering i can hear you muttering under yr breath this kids as soft as brunch and what more than cookies can they crunch damn? But honestly i have a hunch fam, our battle would be over in one... punch... Mannnnnn

So john cena often found betwixt the rock and a hard place i changed the game like a an abandoned factory remixed into an art space
Livin through these dark days, the living proof of smart greys, down avenues and parkways we'll happen soon or part ways afternoon in the park plays, verbose as some Arthur C Clarke sprays more latinum that the place where quark pays were just black holes so embrace this stark gaze
Tell me where your heart stays let me bask in your star rays
Track Name: spirit of the night (secret of mana)
Lets light one up for my main man lieutenant broccoli
Smoke too much my blood greener than the great ambassador spock's be
Yall sound like one of those no names who cant hang spittin on a 'pac beat
Try all they want but im afraid they can never stop me
Our love is an au like iroh and zuko slinging coffee
We dragonfire chai boo me and you are such hot teas

You can hear us coming just listen for the phaser shots ring
That galaxy class j lets blaze her unstopping
Im a roboscientist and yall some battlebotmemes
Im so hungry im having those tater tot dreams
This right here is the kinda style that you simply can not teach
adventure calling abbs you're so hank and not dean

The smell of your hair is so goddamned intoxicating
Wish i could be there in your room and not waiting
On some magic somewhere to keep our love from fading
Its certainly fair to assume theres a timeline with us not dating
id be the mayor of gloom with a heart constantly breaking
But for now beware moon this one has all the makings
Of an otp more legendary than that of zelda and link
Hope to be your incendiary, the spirits in your drink

I met a boy and his name is Russell but way more like brando than brand a wayward lamb yall dont even understand tho find a sexier man no not even possible got me searchin hospital transplant rooms for a heart ill soon need to replace the one he stole from me im hummin jodeci just floored by the fact that he even noticed me from a silly little profile pic on okc but just like blossom's brother joey im screamin whoaaaaaa is me, why cant you be holding me? why are you so far away from me? why am i swimming in lakes when you're so close to the sea? Aint that the just way it goes, b? Aint that the tortured artist tropes we tell ourselves that this somehow is now how its supposed to be? Of desire you know its these words im never really slow to speak.
Im just ms pacman tryin to find a ghost to eat! I could write a sonnet and spit it out onto a mountain goats beat. All my friends can see it on my face ive met a boy whos totes sweet.
