Awake Like An Owl

ANDRE NICKATINA "Daiquiri Factory: Cocaine Raps, Vol. 2"
"What time is it! " This is one of those, A1-Yola raps Stick in ya mind, stick in ya mind, stick in ya mind [Verse 1:] When you up all night You see things you shouldn't have saw Because the night gets raw Drama is thicker than Skippy's peanut butter Imagine the worried thoughts of a young man's mother Feelin's empty, Love don't live here anymore Awake like an owl at a quarter to four Don't blink, a Caddy just ran a red light Bumpin' thug life, man I blend with the night They call me greedy Plead my sins to get a girl a beaty It's Andre Nickatina I'm like a genie in a beanie El Dorado 88 Cadillac, all black Copy cats try to match But they style ain't exactly the same Somebody said, "Freeze, it's a raid! " You know cops are comin' when a brotha smells Glazed doughnuts, hold up Patna fill it to the rim Me and money go together like a feather in a brim I'm a magician Some say my [?] ain't the same but I ain't trippin' A girl be yellin [?] but I don't listen Crooked crow Playas seem to like my style Why's that killa whale... [Chorus:] I stay awake like an owl, Hoo! I stay awake like an owl, Hoo, Hoo! I stay awake like an owl, Hoo! I stay awake like an owl, Hoo, Hoo! [Verse 2:] (What are you baby?) I'm a Raider, camouflaged in silver and the black Tryin' to blitz through the line for the quarter back sack Of the money I dress like it's cold, not sunny But slyer than a persian fox tryin' to catch a bunny In the snow I'm try'na get paid like a ho Or better yet the pimp that's rakin' in her dough Like a baker But check it, who's the king of the caine? And what's that tiga's name with the Macintosh computer brain mind Or should I say mine? Sometimes I gotta lie to protect my crime I'll call my lawyer! Bail bonds keep me on the streets Three in the mornin' I'm at the club with the freaks But I got hawk eye Meanin' that the joint is bein' watched Drinkin' with the killas that be pushin' up the cost For the drought season [?] season Different then they best But those be the ones that don't have to rest Like an owl... [Chorus] [Verse:] I set a trap, I have to spin a web like a spider Don't strike matches, hate child-proof lighters Stay awake Witness how I pick up the pace First I see a girl's butt, then I look at her face I can't explain I'm eatin' garlic bread with the steak [?] for the narcs Brothas droppin' cream by the fiends when they part I'm like a sentinel, known to be the principal original Lookin' for the road that made it gold, they call it federal I'm a general, but yet at times I blaze with my lieutenant Popeye, [?], who got the spinach? Cough, choke, feelin' no remorse for the roach Choppin' up freaks as ya lounge with your folks Playin' dice, you take a chance at the crap game It's all about the money baby, it's the rap game And I'm an owl... [Chorus x2] Uh... And I'm out Uh, Shit It's a planned emergency, (it's a planned emergency) It's a planned emergency, (it's a planned emergency) What, STOP! Shit, fade me, fade me, fade me, fade me, fade me... "What time is it! "

We Dreamt In Heist

ANBERLIN "Blueprints For The Black Market"
This is a black market reformation Keep your lips closed And don't you ever give away our underground location This is a black tie affair Don't ever close your mouth and we'll stay here until someone falls in their own snare I had this planned all along, and I brought you here for this So tie your mask on and pretend that nothing's wrong And I'll try to stay awake as long as I can And I'll try to stay here, here with you This is a black market reformation, how does it feel to be under the gun Last ones to laugh pull the trigger here on the run You can hide the money, I'll mark an X I am above the law and you're the order, you make everything make sense And I'll try to stay awake as long as I can And I'll try to stay here, here with you And I know Mexico is south of here, beautiful this time of year So let's jump the border when the coast is clear Salvation waits at ocean shore, we won't have to lie no more Don't you worry baby I'll be right here And I'll try to stay awake as long as I can And I'll try to stay here, here with you And I'll try to stay awake as long as I can And I'll try to stay here, here with you

Love Vs. Life

JAMESTOWN STORY "Love Vs. Life"
Hold up is this everything you've waited for, is it something less, is It something more than what you gave up to get, you so far Its been awhile since I thought about that day And its so sad that it had to be this way Man I loved the stories that you say Cause its pathetic, don't forget it, cause I know I wont Don't try to tell me, that you think you know me Your head's so high I can't hear what your saying And I don't wanna be there when you fall back down and hit the ground, But I'll be waiting right here when you do I've tried to figure out how it went wrong Should have seen it coming all along But I thought that you could maybe change Instead you said goodbye my friend, I'll replace you with fame It would be nice to hear your sorry (cause I'm sorry) But I guess that things will never change with you You're livin in a dream man, wake up while you still can, your friends Aren't a trash can, so please stay awake oh please stay awake

Barstool

GARY JULES "Greetings From The Side"
Old man on a barstool watching TV Got up and came over to sit closer to me He said "You look familiar to someone I knew But when were your age we were older than you Jimmy was twenty and I seventeen And to us there was nothing but girls and machines Jimmy got married and I went to war I still don't know what we were doing it for But if you'll buy me a drink--turkey on ice Then I could give you some advice "You just stay in the bar For as long as you can As long as you're drinking Then you've got the world in your hand "There's no shame in hanging your world by a string And you know there's no harm in not thinking a thing But trying to find a place for yourself in this world Is like trying to make a wife of an American girl If you'll trade me a drink for a story or two Then you'll know what you need to do "You just stay in the bar For as long as you can You know love is for sissies It's whiskey that makes you a man" Now the old man got up and stumbled out in the street He'd been drinking all day and left his bar tab with me I didn't have the money to cover his bill But I found me a man who looked like me, younger still And said, "Buy me a drink and I'll tell you a tale About the old man who taught me so well You just stay in the bar For as long as you can Hell I know you're a friend I can tell by the shakes in your hand You just stay in the bar For as long as you dare As long as you're tipping Then you've got a good friend somewhere

Easy

AESOP ROCK "Bazooka Tooth"
I take it Easy [Verse 1] Upside down, I pick wigs for beetles Pry 'em out and pin 'em to the polar of the see-saw Sofa cobra shimmy out crater Cradle my weight in double wishbone suspension Versus AM clock radio bangers Downside up in cripple acres and still the fountainhead Spittle sniglets quicker than quidditch seekers snatch golden snitches You could be a part of it Just park your bark at 20 paces Hold this target and we'll call this bitch a partnership Man, the city bred the brittle cheapo Little Lego people squeezing little Lego Polaroid in keyhole Media breather needy burrow to hide all While you friends and neighbors press stethoscopes to the drywall Curl a worm tongue tight, bitten behind the vamp chopper foaming Lamb choppy sock puppet fear and loathing Need phoners a.s.a.p. to build careers out of misquoting So I read Aesop interviews and get schooled on my own motives It's a pocketful of nickels, like Cool Hand Luke decapitating Parking meters when the pigs blew the whistles like windmills I went to jail overnight for putting a sticker on a phone booth Now in the time that you did the paperwork How many'd the rapists merk? Panicky banister silver surf over the wobbles where the potholes Be the ulcer in the stomach of the God show You blinded by the light you might just plummet through the cosmos Meet Apollo sandman function before the whore hit the high note [Chorus] I take it easy, the ice is thinning in the valley of the jeep beats And when the freaks come out I hug a TV Somehow a channel zero bender's less creepy, it's bliss Repeat with a twist...Easy When every martian in the market holler feed me The all city opinion spicket leaky You learn more when your mouth piece retreat, it's bliss Now listen to this...oh OK All day every day, oh all right, all night every night [Verse 2] Whose capitain gon' spew stale venom? Not mine... I hug a hammock in the bedlam And when the potentially lucrative race horse gets deaded I'll wake up for a second to help the betters count their blessings But I cannot cratchet crutch the Ebenezer limbs much longer Flaccid flimsy songbirds, classic dizzy wrong turns For the long term got a dragon all achy Torn between the lending of a helping five knuckles And a charter your own escape Now it's like, sufferin' succotash, bucko, ducks in the chuckle patch 10-4 on that, stinger opinion, wingman double back Fuck it, Let him roam the home of the mange ridden emaciated Slave pain cave children game Not all players heal the same, learn it or don't learn shit My radio is on regardless I tune out pardons and tune in starlets Carbon and pre-David/Goliath live Paleolithic bias Who walks on all fours dragging the cadaver of King Midas Now it's Thor dwarf war hammers, Elvin bow and arrow aimers Documentation of the rate at which narrow tapers Hermit crab, honest cat, trying to raise the roof in my own TV room And still get the security deposit back Call Ripley, skippy, motorhead dope fixture on some go to bed no dinner Hold your head cold winter Ease up out of the ghastly, desert dozer cliques stranded on cloud 8 Proud of their pogo sticks, I stay left Along came a spider, sprung and alert, I stay def He makes records with his tongue in the dirt Suffer the dirty earth crisis with a license to flirt Buffer the mighty tighty sequins with a price on the mersh Covert Mr. Blizzard shoulder, he always acts all pissy Plus your friend said I was an asshole when he met me No bad moods aloud when you're in the public eye Kill it, you are the weakest link, goodbye [Chorus]
