Now lets go ballistic Forming a formula, more abnormal(er) Atheists and Mormons swarmin' Saturday morning coffee is pourin' Foreign to snoring cuz sleeping borin' Gig: M-A Hurris: Double L!

Gig: Essence of the presence save a stretcher in the (Hurris: E-R) Shattered both my eardrums, think I need (Hurris: D-R) Got it on lock down forgot where my (Hurris: keys are) Tellin' telegraphic visions progress you can graph it Hope you grasp it, you can't mask it, I will see right through the plastic Think you got it all together life will snap you like elastic I made sure I found my passion so I'm smiling in my casket Hi how ya doin? I'm I between G's (Hurris: what's up?) Pretty glad you're bout to do it, I, I between D's (Hurris: OK) Nobody stoppin this unless it's, I between ME! Got Mase and Hurris with me so in I, I mean WE!! Wait! Yeah you know the Hurris be Hurris: Goin' in like surgery You probably never heard of me but now you know with certainty I beat the beat up unmercifully and leave it like a murder scene I'm guilty in the third degree (Gig: executed perfectly) Don't ever have to thank me, can consider this a courtesy Keep doin' what I'm doin' cuz we always movin' vertically If ya don't believe it now, stay around and you'll be sure to see You believe the whole time we didn't even mention currency?

Verse 1 - Gig: Beauty for the blind Was nothin short of fine A quarter to a dime Asked if I could court a dime She thanked me for the date Then I thanked her for the time And when i spoke my mind I liked the fact she didn't mind Fast forward on the clock but I can't delay the smile I really gotta go but I could stay a while Without you hours turn to days and a days a while I'm in a daze from how you phrase and I praise your style I know at first I was hesitant I'm shy around the heaven sent Sleepless dreaming trying to believe it's the truth and it hasn't set In that it's happening. Could we live happily? She said she kinda bugged that she's second to this rappin thing She said I love it when you rap but Even more when you're wrappin me Tightly in your arms with every word I feel it maturing I said I know I love it But I'm still in love with the bachelor thing After dinner passin through the mall shes looking back at rings Verse 2 - Hurris: Even with a little tear I never feel brittle dear I hate it when you go girl I wish that you were living here We could cuddle up at any time that you want to And even when I'm upset, you know that I want you And that how it needs to be, I love it how you needin me But not every second in a minute everyday Give me goodbye kisses if I ever go away And when I come home you know we get together in a hurry Cuz you know in two days time that I begin another journey Out on the road somewhere gettin flirty Not with other women cuz I'm living with a limit Just a girl I call the world, can't deny I love to hit it And it's every single night cuz I got a thing for life And if I really could I would leave the single life But for now I got you and I love you all the same Come and live my life with me and we'll get you out the rain Verse 3 - Hurris: Don't be afraid, I'll be here for days Til the sunshine come I'll be the highlight in your grey babe Anything you see, we can make it yours Make it we without remorse Takin me and my support of course

Verse 1 - Hurris: I told em' I didn't wanna know They told me I should probably know Anything and everything that'd fit inside my hollow soul Everything starts to fall like a row of dominos Forget about the present now we think how will tomorrow go With everything we put in There's no probable way we couldn't End up with we wanted How could they be so dishonest After telling them the truth and everything that we went though But for some reason I knew that this is what they'd do But I know, I know that I'll do better From now on I'll never let up I know I'm not alone when I say I feel so fed up With the lies and situations that we all seem to put up with Be glad with what we have instead of the things stuck with I know they say stay positive but it's harder than they say it is To the people who are opposite, re-think cuz you were made for this And wouldn't it be easier to wish away the pain? But if all you do is wish then this will never change Pre-chorus Isn't this just natural Or is this an irrational Fear that I have but for my sake I hope that it is actual Chorus - Luna Lune Like a gun I hold you cold in my hands Pull the trigger gonna run But it's gonna catch you faster than you know I can Like a gun I hold you cold in my hands As I tremble, as I shake, I feel you take My heart away cuz you know you can Verse 2 - Gig: Told me it was meant to be How you'd feel when you mention me And how you knew that it was real Eyes would talk, lips were sealed Fell for 100 stories, fallin 100 stories Thought I knew it all, I predicted it poorly Surely they wouldn't let me fall I fell for all that they told me Hold me, in the palm of your hand See how long I could stand Actin like you can't understand But I see it's all in your plan Watch me but don't stop me as it all comes clear I knew I knew it but I didn't wanna listen to my fear Wish I could see the end, my destruction was that what I defend The closest to my soul passed you, not a contender In denial of myself because I see you're a pretender Proceed with what I want to hear Tell me just how I want to feel Done with that, movin on I thought it'd work I'm provin wrong Go around in circles now I see why I'm a target Wish I would've known this when I started Wouldn't have left myself unguarded Pre-chorus Chorus Outro - Luna Lune: Just run away, just run away My heart will fade, my heart will fade Just run away, just run away My heart will fade My heart will fade

Verse 1 - Gig: Complacent and basic minds It's time you replace your mind I'm drawing a masterpiece You're retracing the basic lines Should rehash and erase ya lines Slow down yeah you should take ya time Come back then you will shake their minds Couldn't kill beats now I Jason mine Feel the pace of my racing mind Me and dreads got adjacent minds We got stupidity's remedy Bringing back energy Me and my flow we are two separate entities Feeds on reality multiplies cemetery He is Lee Oswald you are John Kennedy Shattering minds is a too common tendency Painting a picture you cannot pretend to see Up! Before the sun this year it hasn't beat me one time I'll be done with lunch, you'll be milk and captain crunch time Gotta enough flavor in a punch line I could probably feed a lunch line And enough rhythm I could probably fill in on a drum line Off rhythm awareness, you should be informed with fairness Cuz it's devastating your mistaking flawlessness for careless Stick to a tempo you can afford Driving the Tempo like it's a Ford Never give up like an Accord Miniscule tempos now I'm bored Chorus - Gig: If ya don't know who we are, it's about time that ya did Who are we? Who are you? Man we're Hurris and Gig! It's about time that we got what we came here to get So everybody move that's in the way, this right here is it [repeat] Verse 2 - Hurris: Yeah yeah, I know you know, even if you don't know us Hurris & Gig are in effect now the internet will go nuts Trust me when I say that I know you don't know much But you're about to find out some things That are gonna make your dome bust Plus what's not to like about the numero uno duo I'm not saying I'm the best but for the sake of rhyme i Judo Chop! All these beats to pieces so you know who H&G is And if music religion then I guess that I'm a theist So where are my evangelists If you think that you can handle this Peace to the beat that made this heat That Ante made the sample with If you don't think that you can then I suggest that you get on it Right before the whole unplanned fan bandwagon want it I turn it up when it's time to go and the time to go is now I'm dropping a bomb, you're dropping your jaw Like I blew it up in your mouth Like how did he do it, like you knew it Stupid, prove it off of the blogosphere Probably one of the ones who say we're the hottest here Chorus

Chorus Steve Times: I never wanna hear you say, that we never gonna make it Came across another chance today, yeah you know we gonna take it Hurris: Never would of thought that this would happen but it did we made it man On top of it all and if you knew then let me see you raise your hand... Up! Get em up, get em up! Steve Times: We gonna murk this, we gonna murk this yeah Verse 1 - Hurris: Back in the day when you thought I couldn't Wouldn't, shouldn't, I'm not good and Dope enough to do what I did and do today But I'm done with pussyfootin' Tried to shut the door before on me But I put my foot in You just see results You don't get to see all the work that's put in Hoping that it's good enough Stressing over perfectness But now I know without a doubt We are really murkin' this From everybody coming up Telling me they heard of us Never gonna give or let up Yup, absolutely merciless And everybody that's up in the spot They gotta be like (who they who they) Then after the song is done They gonna be like (hooray hooray) And to keep it real with you I know I would've thought the same I would've changed my mind like you only if you got a brain Brain, brain, give me that.. knowledge and a fifty stack Of books so I can read em, give me the greens so I can eat em Then I'll exercise my freedom, give excuses I don't need em Cuz all I wanna do is kill a beat And run it 'til I can't feel my feet Chorus Verse 2 - Gig: Enthused in the process In the.. process of progress Not a cubicle could box this Cuz I'm allergic to an office Now I got so much on my order plate That I cannot afford to hate Never do sleep can't afford to wait Because I got so much more to make Anticipating my obstacles Cuz history repeats itself Never do stop to celebrate that's how victory defeats itself Evolve and adapt to beat myself Don't know what I have then I cheat myself. Can't go back to repeat myself Create a new me delete myself Never can stop I'm a freight line No breaks never take breaks when I break minds Open up blinds for the blind when I take time Make time stop... at a stand still And I stand still came from the bottom But I rose out the landfill Man we'll make it if we keep on track Hard to keep track when I leak facts Where's the beat at? Bring the beat back Purpose is to murk it Not stoppin till it's perfect Deep as the core of the earth is And that's really just the surface. Wouldn't it work out? It would be fine. If I worked the way I was designed. But I can't chill I can't recline Because murk is what I define Peace sign. Chorus

Verse 1 - Gig: I kept pushin when I thought I'd burn out Glad when they called my name I didn't sit my turn out Glad I stuck around just to see it all turn out I'm at the top of a mountain that I couldn't surmount Never gave in When the world caved in Went outside the box when I wanna stay in Settled with my past let the light l race in On occasions, it doesn't fit equations Now this is my moment and You could never take it No longer mistaken It's here because i make it Diagnosed with a complex But beauty is complex Don't waste time on context You could be gone next So if you are in it Live it without limits Used to let the days pass now I seize the minute Believe in what you are Be leavin' what you're not Be heard with what you say, It's all you really got Chorus Steve Times/Luna Lune: So please, please, please Gig: Nah, don't tell me I'm gone I'm straight takin' this provin' em all wrong Even though I'm on the ground, been here all along Steve Times/Luna Lune: And don't look back Gig: Hey! ain't nothin' back here Gotta a whole lotta problems that belong in last year Leave the past in the past, and move on Verse 2 - Hurris: Anything you want man, you can make it yours I know how you feel when you see shut doors You wanna give up (up), you wanna let go (go) But ya gotta get up (up) from the get go What ya gonna do when the sky falls down? One time had it all but not at all now And that is the thing that we all fear But we gotta take advantage while we're all here So take a look around and see what surrounds you All in your mind is what it come down to Take a little time and see what it allows you Give a little try and see what it amounts to I know it's easier said than done But that's all we got by the setting sun Our time is limited it's all what you're givin' it Let me see you get it up if everyone is livin' it Chorus Bridge - Steve Times/Luna Lune: If you're alone tonight And all the dreams you had are far away Maybe it's hard to see Down the road, down the road But you'll get there Chorus

Verse 1 - Gig: The beat put out its misery Fedex can't match delivery Surpassing an emcee now I tap into wizardry Absolute I show attributes of the realms that I tap into I up the degrees, you're bachelors I just mastered you I serve it like mansion food Down to earth you could ask a root On the beat so much passion dude I'm feelin Charles Manson rude Addressing the beat in a deadly fashion I'm dressing the beat in a casket suit You're just mad cuz I'm faster too At the booth I'm after truth Passed truth in a class of liars Surpassing fire we're passin fire Gas and fire we crash empires Go get a pacifier Blistering competition With listerine composition A hitman with percision The beat is gon' come up missin Not missin a beat I speak it with not any inconsistencies School you with deepness like a group of fish that consist in seas Not a dead beat, I make beats dead "All of my lines," that's what she said She said... Chorus Hurris: Gig you always killin beats why ya gotta be so morbid Gig: Hurris make it viral can't ignore it you absorb it We're "T" to the "W" Hurris: "O" can they double you? Gig: Nah, they can't imitate Hurris: Got more drive than an interstate Verse 2 - Hurris: Sometimes I can't sleep, thoughts are scattered and distorted Man you always killin beats why you got to be so morbid But you never give us deets like are you really Mormon? If you are I don't believe it cuz they way you are performin No way you are humble dude, ok let me humble you The way I live my life will absolutely trouble you Like how did he get this way? Get no debt, yet it's a puzzle to Me and the way things are goin think we gonna get a "W" So step back get that thing you can't imagine havin' You can have it if you have a passion Don't let Gig get a breath in he resembles dragons Gig: Are you tired yet? From the fire breath And I think we about to blow up don't forget about that wire set But let it trip let em get everything the wanted Even though they didn't want it we gave it to em anyway We been doing this all night I can't believe that it's already day But I get no sleep on the weekend so no need to keep the bedding made Chorus

Verse 1 - Gig: Early to bed, early to rise Making a man wealthy and wise Early to bed, that is a lie Before the sun rise, I open my eyes Is it okay if we go for a ride? Let's take my car She said yeah just take me far Watch the sun erase the stars For now I'm seizing the morning Watching the sun as it pouring Over the mountains and into my town The Park Cafe yeah she's down She's got beauty with no make up Make other girls look like clowns She's flawless without bounds Waffles, eggs, hash browns We drown as the sunrise illuminates the valley She moved here from SF and now she forgot about Cali Through the canyon it's never wrong And she got my sweater on Find a view, park it And my hood is what I set her on The silence is amplified All the things I feel inside Magnificence is magnified Imaginations run and hide Like that yeah it's here and gone But I know that it won't be long Until it's Saturday again Til then you can play this song Chorus - Hurris: Remind me of an early morning Waking up, getting ready All the troubles of the world Stacking up, getting heavy But you need to forget Got things you need to go get Aye it's your job to know this So that's why I stay focused [repeat] Verse 2 - Hurris: What a morning it is wake up so I got to take advantage Take the day off get some breakfast cuz I'm feeling really famished From the work week, I sure need Someone that will perk me Up right away but who it gonna be when it is so early? Get outta bed, call up Tell her no need to get dolled up She said on one condition As long as we don't go to the mall love Then I said of course not We don't need a store to shop In, when it's seventy degrees Just to be with you sounds heavenly to me Then she'll see, what my plan is We'll vanish, somewhere up the canyons Where we get the vantage, so we can see the skyline On top of the world, uh huh you read my mind I better think of something so I can keep you entertained Not even a question, when everything has been arranged I know it's a bit cold but I can be your blanket baby Best morning ever but you don't need to thank me baby Chorus

Verse 1 - Gig: I had the earth, stars, the moon all in my grasp Thought I knew it all so much I never had to ask For anything didn't know what people need it for Had the world in my hands then it hit a meteor Lost life's vigor motivating for the leading score It's all over I don't understand what we're competing for Stoppin's not an option Even when it's game over But sometimes it's so hard you cant repeat the pain over So you run around in circles Inner fears cause interference Magnify situations way passed their appearance God gave me choice and I chose to choose nothing I don't know what I have but I still lose something The people see it in me, think about it every night Doesn't matter what they see I gotta see I carry light My spirits getting lower than the tone of Barry White And my life's feeling colder than a February night Verse 2 - Hurris: Inspiration's everywhere from the sky to the sea All of it is nothing 'til it's something you see Learned a lot more than a clap back when they all booed me But now I'm coming back with an attack that's a doozy Where would I be if I stopped when music bruised me? A nobody nowhere feeling like I'm doody Always getting stepped on and everybody shoe (shoo) me And to be completely honest I hated when no one knew me But now I couldn't care less cuz I turned into a new me Obsession with progression and I constantly improve me Feeling like a million even when I'm losing It's got to be confusing we never give up pursuing It's all about the mindset, they asking if I'm tired yet All of it would be for nothing even with all the time spent Writing these raps and writing these rhythms This man is out but he hopes that you ride with him Verse 3/Bridge - Repeat 2x I know, I know (I know, I know) That I can see (that I can see) Now everywhere we go we can see it all over So we will never ever think that this is all over
