[Verse: Braidz]

Ayo Whattup Fam, I know it's been a minute
Since, B' been creeping in your speaker system
I'm thankful for my fans because they keep on listening
Now I'm back to rock the boat, cock my throat, but they won't see man finish
No homo, I got flows yo
But lately I've been feeling cold as fuck
My stove blowed and my flow froze
And I had no time to rap I'm getting older bruh'
I'm 24 now and I'm still stuck in my clothes closet
Laying down tracks like a junkie that won't drop it
Went to Uni 2 years back, nothing to show for it
Became a critic of myself, like "Fuck it my flow's boring
Need an Image I can sell and touch up ya' voice homie
How you saying you the man, sounding like you a boy phony?
Claiming that the Cal see 'em, sounding like you Soy only...
Well that just gave me more focus, now I feel all knowing
Know that I won't give up 'til the day my curtains calls open
Even if I'm poor, broken
I'mma bleed it out for ya'll folk until the sores closing and the lords poking
Looks like the Frame's dropped and I'm stuck in this scene here
Dumping on these rappers - I ain't fucking a weak bitch
Best on the bill show's something to see, kids
Jumping in their Vans like I'm Palming Off Treats, it's
The, weed hitting, beat mixing, deep missioned MONSTER!
Mead drinking, Lean's gimpy, street single ROCKSTAR!
Dream winning lost one, deemed vicious boss brah'
Peak spitting, G Hitting, Streamed Visioned, TOP CUNT!
Keeping it locked up - I threw the key away
Back for good and I need to stay
Because no matter how tough you might seem to mates
Us musicians all weep the same, read the page...

[Hook: Braidz]
So I've been gone for a minute but I feel like it's time to come back now
There's a wave on the rise and I feel like it is something I could catch now
'Cause these day's in the underground everybody sounds a little cracked out
And it's wack how all of their tracks sound...
I think it's time to bring the smackdown...

[Intro: Sample]

[Intro: Braidz]
Ladies & Gentleman...
Boys & Girls...
I'd like to welcome you all to my castle...
Just let me talk for a minute...

[Verse: Braidz]
As a kid I thought I'd be something like an Astronaut
Now I'm grown all I am is badly poor and have no job
So I'm shooting for the stars - Like the tips of the pyramids
When I say *gun noises* - It's just clips of me killin' it
If I keep focusing on smoking weed and video games
Then my hopes to be a dope MC will wither away
So, Hopefully you notice me; A Lyricist - Braidz
I'mma bomb or blow the scene, either way the missiles are aimed
But It's my time, my life, I'mma find my highlights
You strung me up now you get to watch this Kite fly
For every Dope rapper there's that Bubble In The Pipe
Who brings Fresh Air while the others keep it Light
Dudes that think they're god's son's but ain't sick as this
I'mma Celebrate your death's - Like Christmas cheers
Metaphors out the ass, my shit is sick
When I cut I skin heads - Like Britney Spears
I'm that dude you don't want to jump on a gig with
The way I'll win those bars over, I could start up a prison
Your horrid chick can swallow dick, mine when she gobbles it
2Chainz called her Big Booty, I call her my Bottom Bitch
On that note I've got something to say
When I say "faggot" it's not meant in a derogatory way
And I don't mean to offend if you are honestly gay
Same when I say "Bitch", "Whore", "Hotties" & "Skanks"
So...
Ladies and Gentleman, any alike
I'd like to welcome you to my Castle take a step on inside
If you head to the right I'm betting you'll find
The dungeon where I keep my mentality tied
Notice the room on the left is just Naked, Blank...
That's where I used to have my creative Space!
Upstairs is the room where I lay awake
The door that's painted grey to display my pain
Look directly above and you'll see a massive chandelier
It doesn't work though, I've been using it to hang my fears
Behind the steps you'll find a church to pray in
But excuse the walls they were burnt by Satan
Kitchen and Dining but no Chef's that cook Seafood
They're more like them Butchers from Resident Evil
Bathroom out back but no power through the walls
These days I hate water I just shower in my thoughts...
See I've got bars to contain my rage, encaged
But they're still saying Braidz is strange for days
Even Kobe couldn't teach me to Fade Away, they say
Can't have your cake and eat it - but it tasted great, I ate!
The paper plate was saved I used to write this
You will never meet another lunatic like me
I'm manic and evil
Been through shit in the past year lost drive ended up in the passenger seat, dude
Honestly I didn't think I'd have me a sequel
Not this fast at least but I'm happy to see you
I'mma build my story more with Crayon Castles and steeples
And then fill it with my Paddlepop People...
Track Name: Words Play
Annotated @ http://genius.com/Braidz-mc-words-play-lyrics

[Verse: Braidz]
So let's play a game called bars with Braidz
I've already Painted Pictures that you can't display
I'm Covered to take the Ball now - Masquerade
Yo i'm the Tidal Storm that will push your Cast Away
Not enough bars - too many filler lines
That's why our acts find it hard at gigs to even fill a line
Speed Rushing their bars, so I don't even feel a line
I don't do this for Kicks, I guess I've never felt that FILA Line
As the Tom Cruise I bomb dudes who Can't Handle The Truth
That's why it's All Eyes On Me when I stand in the booth
If we were co-workers at Subway you couldn't Rap with me dude
I'd put you in To Coma's when my Mac Is approved
I'll Kick you in the Throat so you're Next to taste Defeat
I used to think my haters had never played for peace
Thought they slept on mad bars which made em meditate for weeks
They say I can't play ball? NA, They'll never play with "B"


[Hook: Braidz]
They say that you're a nerd Braidz
Ain't heard me in the first place
I'd kick you to the curb mate you ain't hot...
My bars be to superb hey
And when I let my Words Play
They do not hear this wordplay that I've got...


[Verse: Braidz]
They said I'm a nuisance, but nah I'm a new sense
I'm new since you used to find me hanging where the noose ends
Needed to Change my ways so I gathered me some new Cents
And Sprouted from a Seed, Soon what you'll see on the news - Ents
Really I just do this shit because it's fucking fun to me
The way I Mix It Up, kid, you can't even Punch with me
They always Boo The Pest so expect me to be Hungry
'Cause all I do is serve food - you're just another Lunch too me
I've smoked Kush on a White Rhino with an Orange AK
Picked Blueberries from bushes, when I spit I Spray Weight
Spike you in the face - Pineapple Expression, then flame the Weed smoke
I guess what I'm saying is sucker Braidz has been Dope
I'll burn all you Leeches sentence Suckers to death pal
Emptying Lead can get you stuck in my Pen's Cell
These other MC's have all got it wrong
They're talking bar for bar I'm talkin' song for song
But


[Hook: Braidz]
They say that you're a nerd Braidz
Ain't heard me in the first place
I'd kick you to the curb mate you ain't hot...
My bars be to superb hey
And when I let my Words Play
They do not hear this wordplay that I've got...


[Verse: Braidz]
Problems with my father 'cause Liam he stabbed at
Revenge served cold I'mma sneak in ya' rat shack
Find the fiend in a crack nap, smash his teeth in then hack, slash
And leave his head North Of Middle East, in a Bag Dad
But enough of that 'cause for now I only murder beats
I realised I'm a Boss and that's why no one wants to work with me
A chilled back dude who never wants to staunch
But leave dog shit on my doorstep, I'll bring Dogs to yours
It's taken time to travel people see my past fuck ups more
In the present I'm small - I guess I'm tryna' come up short
All my crew taking steps that I'm a few feet from
But if you give the God A Miss then You Be Soft
'Cause it's a Far Cry you'll beat me...
My bars hide their meanings, smart types can see this
I'm pretty sure my whole life I'mma spit on a beat
Or at least 'til my Dough Nuts like I pick it from a Cinnamon Tree


[Hook: Braidz]
They say that you're a nerd Braidz
Ain't heard me in the first place
I'd kick you to the curb mate you ain't hot...
My bars be to superb hey
And when I let my Words Play
They do not hear this wordplay that I've got...
Track Name: Crazy
Annotated @ http://genius.com/Braidz-mc-crazy-lyrics

[Intro: Sampled "Vaas - FarCry 3"]
Alright, Did I ever tell you the definition of insanity?

[Verse: Braidz]
Ayo these last two years have been toy as fuck
It seems my friend group's been destroyed by drugs
Work Place asking if I want Employment, Plus
I'm always fighting with my chick like I'm annoyed by love
A few of my pets have died and Uni's getting stressful
I've got no time to do any of my music 'cause my heads full
Dad stabbed me, Left mum's, wishing death would hurry up
'Cause it feels like my day's are a Long Drag - Funny Car
Nothing left inspiring so who would want to do rap's
Before they even bump it crew's snap and say this dude's wack
So I Forget, Sorry, now I'm chasing me a new Chance
Even though I've done it for myself and not my few fans
Feels like I got a few laps before hanging up the boot Straps
Spat all my punches my tooth's cracked, I need new Caps
But nothing has Fitted I'll Snapback get stuck in the system
Time to make my Disc Blast like ya' cutting with Krillin
But you say...


[Hook: Sampled "Sam Smith - I'm Not The Only One" & Braidz]
You say I'm crazy
(Yeah they say I'm Crazy)
'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
(They don't think I know)
But when you call me baby
(Call me a baby)
I know I'm not the only one
(I'm not the only one, Nah)


[Verse: Braidz]
They say that death's scary, I feel living is more
Shit, I don't even know I want to spit any more
'Cause to think I have it locked down is a criminal thought
I fell the fuck off the noise I drop relates to pins on the floor
And my head's so fucked it's like I'm never not in Crisis
When my bomb blow's i'll be deadlier than ISIS
Feel at home when I'm high - I put my tenancy in pipes, kid
Who'd have thought as a youngin' I never would have liked it
I'm a conjoined twin to weed if we're keeping it real I'm
Spaced out - Living in the 60's on a trip with some Neil guy
I'm real fried but if I quit I'll end up quitting myself
But slowly it's crept up and given hits to my health
Most nights I sit by myself and try to write
But find that my mind has died so I light a pipe
I've been writing generic tracks, but the rhyming isn't bad
Just my mind is in a bag I think I finally understand
Why they say...


[Hook: Sampled "Sam Smith - I'm Not The Only One" & Braidz]
You say I'm crazy
(Yeah they say I'm Crazy)
'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
(They don't think I know)
But when you call me baby
(Call me a baby)
I know I'm not the only one
(I'm not the only one, Nah)
Track Name: She'll Go
Annotated @ http://genius.com/Braidz-mc-shell-go-lyrics

[Verse: Braidz]
He wakes up, excited 'cause it's gig night
He's rehearsed his ass off so his shit's tight
One last run through in the mirror he stops, watches his eyes
Spits fire and tells himself it's his time
Clocks tocking, burns his set to a disc
This I can relate too - He's never feeling better than this
Every show he's been doing has been a step up for him
Now it's a big support slot - He's ready for this
So he gets on to spit, at first he's awkward as fuck
Just running song to song not talking too much
'Til he see's her in her glorious form that she'd front
Suddenly they're roaring his performance is awesome as fuck
Soon as he gets off stage he starts talking to her
Can't even stay for the main act - they're horny as fuck
But in the morning she's chucking, they think the vodka had done it
But there's a bun in the oven - He ain't got time for this woman...


[Hook: Braidz]
In the basement 'til dawn, slave 'til the morn', making his songs
But he knows, That She'll Go
If one day he don't make it she'll leave him on the pavement, standing with his heart breaking
She'll Go
And He knows...


[Verse: Braidz]
Now she's calling him dumb, she calls him a bum
She can't see he believes in his glorious tongue
Say's she ain't a gold digger? Whore is so dumb
Said she'll leave if he don't make it, but it's all out of love?
But the love that he has for his art will last
Longer than any females he's ever fucked in past-
Times 'cause these rhymes make him feel so super fly
All he know's is his Fire Works - Like he nukes the sky
But no shit this hoe bitch he's meant to grow with is so shit
How can she say this when she met him at his own gig?
Behind closed doors she just spits on his dreams
Says she's gonna go if he don't give up his needs
And so he's in the studio all day and all night
There's no intimacy left any foreplay's in force-drive
If the money don't come soon she's ready to go
'Cause she can't see the big picture just like everyone don't


[Hook: Braidz]
In the basement 'til dawn, slave 'til the morn', making his songs
But he knows, That She'll Go
If one day he don't make it she'll leave him on the pavement, standing with his heart breaking
She'll Go
And He knows...


[Bridge: Braidz]
So he never gave her more the direction that she headed was the door in a second she was gone
No More.... Yeah She's gone...
A few years have passed now he's better than before, suddenly he's blown up and everyone's in awe
But she's not.... Yeah she's gone...


[Verse: Braidz]
If the relationship was hard the divorce is impossible
Years wasted were pointless - Like Porn with a Prostitute
At first she was to him what a Sauna's to a Locker Room
And now he has to grace the court floor in a proper suit
'Cause her lawyers keep on putting up a fight man
Looks like most of his money is gonna' end up as his wife's cash
And he's a G, so you know he's always quite strapped
Starts yelling at the end of the sentence - Like a Hype Man
Judge tells him to "sit" - He doesn't like that
Shit pops off he goes to grab his right 'gat
Before anyone can react all they hear's a slight bang
And suddenly before his eyes his life flashed
And it rubs it in his face, like, "You like that?"
He see's a happy life and his mind starts to cry, then
He see's the guard pulls his gun, and he's gonna die fast
First he realizes this whole time he just wanted his Wife back...


[Alt. Hook: Braidz]
Now he's laying on the floor, sprayed over the court, people praying that he's good
But he's not... Yeah he's gone...
Fan's saying he's a god, saying that it's fake and he is just playing along
But oh no.... He's gone...
Track Name: Fire (ft. Full Spectrum)
Annotated @ http://genius.com/Braidz-mc-fire-souls-song-lyrics

[Verse 1: Full Spectrum]
I'm in my fire witch outfit, got my carthus curved great-sword
Don't get cocky here you'll die quick, got dragons and giants we make war
We take form like fire, that same fire spread to create worlds
We hold the crown of the sunken, iron & ivory kings...
(Uh) Hey, Catch me in the tower
Or somewhere in the swamps where pyromancy devours
I ain't no Shang Tsung but these Souls are so empowering
I'm curse til I die and then I die again and I die again...
(Huh, Yeah) Repeat the cycle and grind again
Reach my height then I die again recycle and try again...
And those who get it will get it
Those who don't will regret never knowing what it's like in the Lion's Den
I'm spitting fire breath, I'm throwing lightning spears
The walls of the world are thing I'm invading yours at every chance I get
My red eye orb is cracked, My great demon hammer smashed
I fight Gwyn I circle him and then I parry that attack
I am so Drangleic with my rap...
I dragon ride and I dragon slay they can't weigh me down so I call them Seath the way they betraying their own kind
In the blink of an eye for that old lie, either sunlight here or no light
Where we wander around in the darkness forever cursed living that Soul life


[Sample: "Dark Souls 1 Intro"]
In the age of ancients the world was unformed
Shrouded by fog...
A land of grey crags, arch-trees & everlasting dragons
But then there was Fire....


[Verse 2: Braidz]
My meta Full Spec'd so now the battle is on
Bowing from my tower I'd devour a god
No Havel's Ring - But I'm carrying loads, son
You get power from pots - Like an amateur stoner!
Step into a Dark Soul backed by Demons
Where the messages are Blood Born, rap's my meaning
Snap at me and better Lag for Defense
Or I'll watch you fade into Abyss - like Farron's Legion
Prophet of hip hop, I eat gods like Aldritch do
Yet to be a giant - with big walk like kid Yhorm
I fight my own battles, but you'll always find me helping dudes
No Dark Sword i Hit Box more than an Adult Acting Troupe
Pledge a bitch the Fingers then I give her the Pale Tongue
Got her calling me a Miracle it's touching like Braille, bruh
Call that a Dark Root (Haha) - But now back to the topic
My style? Blightown - Got rappers all stopping
I'm, Patches if honest - Find me Kicking in the Trap
Put my rhyme books on High Walls, 'cause shit is really Grand
Diss me in a track you'll feel the flicker of the Ash
We'll never hear from you again - Just like Gwynevere & Flann
Track Name: Raw Wit' It (ft. Dismay)
Annotated @ http://genius.com/Braidz-mc-raw-wit-it-lyrics

[Hook: DJ Scratches]


[Verse: Braidz]
I strike a storm with it, Fuck it I'm Thor with it
Got Light nang's I'm hype man - like what you need in your performances
The flow's designed to open pry the closed in minds of small witted
MC's ain't worth a buck-shot, I'm a forty-four with it
With poor gimmicks, A moppery, I wipe the floor with it
You should quit for the Record, Close the fucking DAW, snib it
Believe me I'm raw with it...
They say I'm behind in the race, it's 'cause I've got the bars that have you all finished!
You've got your cords twisted, you're no power to me
Surgically I murder beats, Get back on your lead
I'm raw wit' it I turn cattle to beef, rabbits to fleece
Take lamb from a sheep, ham from a pig, salmon from seas
How you think you can Box-in Braidz when ya' Forms missing
The need to feed these kids I was born with it
Any verse from me is just a torn snippet
That'll have me up in your mother's - Steeze Umbilical Cord with it!


[Hook: DJ Scratches]


[Verse: Dismay]
I'm Raw wit' it, yeah I was born with the force to get it
And leave em torn with the type to cause blunt force trauma with it
I'm just a Raw giddy
I get it on like a kid in the corn, I was born sickened
I'm raw living like a bunch of tortured victims
It goes right to the core shit is caused by them slaughter visions
And they're all vivid...
Take a trip through my mind you don't wanna' visit
It's like a storm hit it!
Yeah I'm raw wit' it, Can't be ignored or fixed its
Just a haunted feeling I get and now you're all victims
The result of all the weed and alcohol mixed with
Withdrawal symptoms from the need to make them all distant
I was born wit' it, Nah, Fuck that, I'm just Raw Wit' It
When I bust back at their poor writtens
I'm so raw, I could never get bored with this shit
So raw that when I spit I wipe the floor with these kids


[Hook: DJ Scratches]


[Verse: Braidz & Dismay]
B: I'm, uh, breaking bad because my Soul's missing
Ever got so good at rapping you became bored with it?
When your bars are like the makers of a lot of porn - Vivid
I'mma let the big homie Dismay take the floor with it
D: And I'mma cause panic in em 'til they all quitting
Go to war with these stars like they're Darth Maul spitters, get it?
Diz was born with the force in him
And I ain't giving em Much Room but you can bet that they all Trippin
B: Me and Diz saw your missus in porn with her deformed figure
She ain't the Maybelline chick just 'cause she was 'born with it'
D: Going in so raw just to cause friction
Bitches falling victim to the monster like they all porn driven
Shit I live it, This is the game of riders
B: That's why the pen sticks to paper like a staple wire
D: So me and Braidz came here to blaze and fire
B: You'll find us riding on the breaks like an Asian driver
Cause we...


[Hook: DJ Scratches]
Track Name: F*ck It!
Annotated @ http://genius.com/Braidz-mc-fck-it-lyrics

[Intro: Sample "Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap]
Eminem: The first time I grabbed the mic, like in front of actual people that mattered, You know what I'm saying? Like at a club - I got Booed, I just remember that being so fucking traumatic and I think I went home like man, I... I quit



[Verse: Braidz]
I feel like I'm a ghost in a shell because I'm dead inside
Never lie my brain's purpose only seem's to terrorize
Me until I end my life, bet I cry but when I try
I hit an invisible wall of death like a motherfucking metal mime
I then rely on getting high it's the only thing that gets me by
Rap don't do it no more once the Track's Done I wanna End The Line
It feels like everything blows inside this fucking head of mine's
And once that smoke clears, well I guess i've got that Never-Mind
My troubled mind says it's hustle time need to get famous fast
If I keep writing Double The Lines there'll be no Lane To Pass
But my mental state is so distracting it breaks my heart
Used to be happy now I'm putting on a fake facade
Most day's I feel like a mean, hopeless fiend toking green
Hoping these folks will see and notice me then open dreams
Though the scenes focus seems scoping me and joking teens
Think that they have broken B' but don't know they won't be noticed


[Hook: Braidz]
Now I'm trying not to give up
But it just gets so hard
'Cause I ain't having luck in the scene
Been feeling like I should say Fuck It and leave...
I give this shit all of my heart
And these guys just turn 'round and laugh
Do I continue to please my fans and my passion?
Because my mind's saying Fuck It too me...


[Verse: Braidz]
If a few years back I heard 60's song say to Live It Up
I would have turned around and said "Yo, we don't give a fuck"
See it's shit like that, all this little stuff
That has this Full Keg Rapper still performing at these Mini Bars
Told I would see more stumbles If I don't be more humble
But I never took it in, told the scene all "fuck you!"
'Til I dropped my last tape - and nothing eventuated
Even though my skills had increased tenfold as I demonstrated
Now I see it was my attitude, Mr. Negative bashing dudes
I lashed at the scene over my own problems - now that's the truth
Now my dreams are likely bashed and bruised
'Cause now I get no chances because back then I was wack as too
And they can't look past the past they say this "poofter" is ass
They don't hear the similes that I put in my bars
But this Villain Is Sick like i'm Crook In A Mask
And I'mma always Kick It Hard like my Foot's In A Cast
(But I'm....)


[Hook: Braidz]
Now I'm trying not to give up
But it just gets so hard
'Cause I ain't having luck in the scene
Been feeling like I should say Fuck It and leave...
I give this shit all of my heart
And these guys just turn 'round and laugh
Do I continue to please my fans and my passion?
Because my mind's saying Fuck It too me...


[Verse: Braidz]
Balled so hard now they're calling me a Nutcase
Trolled so much now the scene's saying "Fuck Braidz"
But It seems my hate train has slowly stopped upon a station, but
In the back of my mind I feel that it's just down for maintenance
Now I've started to repent there's dude's barking up my fence
Who I used to have love for - Noticed nothing's ever said
About me, When I'd ask for help, So suck your mother's tit
Rub up on her clit, 'Cause Karma is a Motherfucking bitch
Back when my name was Taboo like one of the Black Eyed Peys
All these guys talked like "Braidz is wack" guys, please
I could chat my teeth and come up with better lines than crack lined speed
Thinking I'm a brash white teen, who's never bashed light geeks?
In reality I just got over the street shit
Puffing pipes inbetween spliffs, But knowing all these kids?
They'll crack a joke to that bar, like "He got sick of them beefing"
Congrats, you found a track that leaked that I never planned on releasing...


[Hook: Braidz]
Now I'm trying not to give up
But it just gets so hard
'Cause I ain't having luck in the scene
Been feeling like I should say Fuck It and leave...
I give this shit all of my heart
And these guys just turn 'round and laugh
Do I continue to please my fans and my passion?
Because my mind's saying Fuck It too me...



[Outro: Sample "Eminem - "Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap]
Eminem:...And then, you know maybe a couple weeks later, days later, hour later? Or whatever it was, I dunno I just, I got the urge like nah man I gotta get up, gotta do it again...
Ice T: That's right, thank god...
Track Name: Paranoid (ft. Mista Hood)
Annotated @ http://genius.com/Braidz-mc-paranoid-lyrics

[Intro: Sampled]
Sometimes we notice coincidences like, "Oh there were a couple of cars on the street" and we just move on and forget about it
But for someone with Schizophrenia these experiences take on a vastly different kind of feeling
You might notice there were 3 red cars on the street and instead of just forgetting about it you start thinking
"Well why is there 3 red cars on the street, maybe it has something to do with me? Maybe these people are coming to harm me"...


[Verse 1: Braidz]
Sit in awe of the art and just listen
As I'm pouring my heart through the system
You see I'm so Paranoid I rarely get around
In the last 3 years I've barely left the house
Old friends like, "Come out man, let's drink some shots"
I'm like "Nah man, I don't think I can take it off"
Straight lying - 'cause I don't even have a job
No house, no direction and over Twenty One
Man, I just want my head to somehow work with me
Starting to lose Patience like a run down surgery
Struggling for a feed off some cents that I don't make
Everyone say's the new centerlink laws sound like a joke ay
But they've always called me a fuckin' joke too
These wolves in sheep's clothing just go with the flow dude
My aim's a career not a job but my tolerance has ran out
So I'm putting everything into music I'm just hoping that i'll stand out

[Chorus: Mista Hood]
Part of me wants to be
Part of me wants to see
But part of me is all of me
And all of me is Paranoid
X2

[Verse 2: Braidz]
Now I'm Paranoid about my chick's too, Mad because I wish dude
I never would have gone where it began, see this shit's true
My first love? She fucked me, I mean literally FUCKED me!
Had a gang-bang with three dudes came home said she loved me
That's the type of shit that leaves you mentally scarred
That's the type of shit that you may never get past
That's the type of shit that leads to Heroin, Shard
Stepping in bars with Eccy's to pass 'round 'cause your dead in the heart
Everyone asks why I'm like this - well there's the reason
Thought I'd solve it leaving dudes with their heads all bleeding
So I took a bat to the scene, and bashed up some teens
But I ended up feeling more crap when I leaved
Leaved? I mean left, like I did to that scumbag
Saw black and lashed out but it just left me with cutbacks
Now I forever watch the movements of any chick I'm with
I'm constantly feeling played and just wanting to slit my wrist 'cause a-...

[Chorus: Mista Hood] x2

[Verse 3: Braidz]
My aim's to grace the stage in nations places you have never seen...
So while you chase big dreams, I chase big memories
I stay crafting these bars, always hoping that I'll make it
'Cause the only time I feel good is at shows or in the basement
But, players are hating 'cause I came up on gay shit
They can't accept the fact that now I'm making my name stick
'Til they go back on their word like I literally played it
Wordplay for days you just didn't get what Braidz spits
This version of success isn't what I envisioned it just makes stress
Sick of these lame heads who just listen to what their mates said
Tell me my song's shit before they even think to play it
Blacklisted by my scene using the internet to make it...
Then again that's probably in my head as well
But doctor's give me med's, and they never help
I know it's in my mind I know I need to get out more
From this day forward I won't let this disease be my downfall!

[Chorus: Mista Hood] x2

[Verse: Braidz]
The other night I couldn't sleep, I was rested in my bed
Saw some shit that made me think of everything I am
It's been a long hard road - gotta get this off my chest
'Cause when I look in the mirror starting to see reflections of my dad
I never would have fathomed that I'd grow to be this
I used to be against this life - the 'Dro and Speed hits
Guess it all started at 7, when I broke to pieces
Got booted to Dad's joint, seen smoking, needles...
Mum was 'gonna drown me that night in a dam
I remember pulling over she was crying and mad
That's a confession I never thought I'd write in my raps
Then I had to go and live my life with my dad
I was in a house with no rules, man it was so cool!
First time I smoked weed - stole it out of his dope room
I was 15 hitting speed with my folk too
Acted Lower Class, then eventually - No School
My apologies to all the kids who failed it too
I'd sit and make a fool 'cause shit it made me cool
But nobody would learn 'cause they were busy with me
All they ever learnt is what a fucking dickhead I'd be
Looking back now those were horrible moves, shit
As a youngin' doctors said I'd be an Honor Roll Student
I let that A.D.H.D better me, I faded out at seventeen
And aimed for rep on every street with a mate who deck's amphetamine's
Then paper found the pen it seems - I strayed from the Graff
Always known to Beatbox, that changed into Rap
Posted up on Forums while Developing Threads
That's where I met a dude named Hop' who wasn't relevant then
I started battling and made my way into the Aussie Scene
Realized I sounded shit unrehearsed and not on a beat
The first dude I flopped against's the first dude who fucked with me
Shout's to Gen RhYme ain't gotta Ask we though we were sick like Allergy's
Really in the shit like Felonies, I though I got my Bars Locked
Started to craft songs that went fucking hard - Not
Dropped New Years in '08 and they hated my tracks
I used to be "the shit", now I take that shit back
But it got me off the streets like a sewer flooding
I never really held a job it felt like I was finally doing something
I'd get hate from heaps of dudes above me
Shaken, like that juice ain't bubbly
Put myself in a Coupe, like I had a fucking Clue or something
Acted like a living legend now I cannot mix with any-
-Body in the scene I made a rookie move and hit a dead end
Now a bunch of people want to kick my head in...
Shit was 6 fucking years ago, Kid's forget it...
But I had the nerve to shit talk brethren
Cold burns - Like winters heavy
All that talking big got me in lots of shit, Pathetic
I'm forced to pave my own path from that intersection
Now I've come to the realization Hip-Hop has turned me Schizophrenic
I used to blame this disease formed in my head on the dope buds
Guess I kept my friends close, and my enemy closer
I don't even know why I'm letting you know but
I had to get this all out or else my ending was over
A few months back I wasn't handling this shit
Ran away from home, cops found me standing on a bridge
I was totally deluded, they dragged me off of it
Perfect, they wanna lock me up again got C.A.T Teams on the kid
And I just lied my way out of it - like I usually do
The shit the doctors said? The only truth in the room!
I've always tried to hurt myself there's bruises to prove
But I never thought the worst would come from music I do
I had the biggest of balls - for the neutered-est dude
And it made the scene hate me, I'm a loser to you's!
Made all the stupidest moves, ended up losing my crew
Now my friend count ends out fewer than few
Best mates all started beef I'm left to pick up the pieces
I'm ready to say fuck it, throw this Jigsaw and leave it
So there's not much in life that I'm living to be with
Whenever I'm feeling down I just think of my Nieces
I guess that I'm just feeling tired of this shit
Whenever I go out I think people eyeing off the kid
At least every day you live it's like you die a little bit
I don't even know why my fans admire me, I'm sick...
So don't cry a little bit if you hear I've splattered my brain
I'll be doped up when I go because I'm out of the pain...
Track Name: Father Figurine
Annotated @ http://genius.com/Braidz-mc-father-figurine-lyrics


[Chorus: Sampling "Bea Miller - Young Blood"]
But in dark times when we close our eyes it's a nightmare
It's a nightmare..
When the sun don't shine we lose our minds it's a nightmare
It's a nightmare...


[Verse: Braidz]
I was nearly two in my first memory I have of you
I'd assume you'd had some booze and I was in the lounge-room you
And mum were arguing I was watching Superman all casual
Turned around you had her hair and up the stairs you dragged her through
Don't remember what happened after that...
Tay was born, suddenly you were gone, my memory fades - I'm nine or ten
Mum remarried, we were meant to see you on the weekend
Told her you'd need cash though or else we wouldn't see him
When I moved in it was over though, the damage was done
You'd leave us home alone - And always ran off for drugs
My grandfather was a damn father more than my damned father was
Overdosed, you never taught us what the number for the ambulance was
And that happened two times
You used to be so successful, 'til you found you a new line
All the dangers you introduced to us, Strangers who introduced to us
A brainless lame and draining version of what once was good 'til you'd do the stuff


[Chorus: Sampling "Bea Miller - Young Blood"]
But in dark times when we close our eyes it's a nightmare
It's a nightmare..
When the sun don't shine we lose our minds it's a nightmare
It's a nightmare...


[Verse: Braidz]
You used to be so cool, then I saw through the illusion
And abusive booze-head, wish I could take my blood and bruise it
Every last little bits of faith I had in you was stupid
Hepatitis gonna catch you soon and you've just had a new kid
At least this one won't have to carry the heat
But if you ain't gone by the time he's grown you'll need a Great Barrier, Reef
'Cause daddy's a dredging oil splash who's bound to be burned
Even his own blood wants to see him six feet down into Earth
Every year mum would get me the new Pokemon, what's the shit he did?
Get a new broken home where dope was grown, what a sick Christmas!
I'm sick vicious 'cause the dimwitted shit he did
Got to a point I grabbed a fucking 2x4 and took a fuckin' swing with it
The only reason I hope you don't puff on the meth more?
Is I wanna be the one who beats the drugs to your death cause
So when you hear this drop dead, because your heart is really weak
You were never a father figure, just a father figurine
You fake fuck...


[Chorus: Sampling "Bea Miller - Young Blood"]
But in dark times when we close our eyes it's a nightmare
It's a nightmare..
When the sun don't shine we lose our minds it's a nightmare
It's a nightmare...
But in dark times when we close our eyes it's a nightmare
It's a nightmare..
When the sun don't shine we lose our minds it's a nightmare
It's a nightmare...
Track Name: Burying You Alive
Annotated @ http://genius.com/Braidz-mc-burying-you-alive-lyrics


[Intro: Braidz]
You thought this was over huh? (Nah cunt)
You wanted me to rap about you cunt, fuck you
Die cunt...


[Verse: Braidz]
Dear Dad, if that's still what you call yourself Sean
You turned this nice kid into a warring hellspawn
I hope you hear this and start pouring hailstorms
Cold-hearted cunt, lucky you weren't torched and belt on
Had plenty of offers to get you nabbed for what you did
What kind of shit father stabs on their own kid
All the jobs I did for you I could take your career
Leave me untrained on site and take a break for ages for beer
Only to never pay me for the job that I'd do
One day you're getting ran through and I'm robbing from you
Mocking this dude, you're nothing but a horrible human
The day I left you probably got someone to move in
I was shocked at the news that you were having a son
Thought maybe you wouldn't damage this one but you addicts are fucked
Who puts habits in-front of another life? Scummy types
So consider this your cut-back from that exact same bloody knife


[Hook: Braidz]
I'm sick of all this hurt you've caused me
I hope the next time that you search this song sits
At the top of the page, I'm fucked up this way
That I am now - 'cause all the dirt I saw digged
You think you're so cool but it's a terrible disguise
Wish you were not there for my whole life
Kill yourself, Drunk on Heroin one night
Until then - Consider this as me Burying You Alive


[Verse: Braidz]
(And to think)
I didn't want you to be, my brother
'Cause your fucked up parents and I don't speak, my brother
Come to find you're born addicted to the Speed, my brother-
A weed high lover from a fiend-type mother
If you don't make it I'mma fuck everything between my brother
See my disease motherfuckers, rip out spleens, my brother
If you live - I'll be your Great Barrier, Reef, My Brother
These fucked up addicts are never gonna' see my brother
So, Fuck you...
And fuck you from each one of your sons too
Word to Seth
If he dies, I'mma murder them, put teeth right on ya swirling steps
Set fire to her dirty dreads, end lives 'cause I'm hurt to death
I'm fucking sick of these junkies, throwing shit on these monkey's
If I ever see my Dad again I'm hitting the fuckwit
Any kids between you should have stayed in her Syphillis undies
But you fucked up so now we gon' take this kid from you bum pricks


[Hook: Braidz]
I'm sick of all this hurt you've caused me
I hope the next time that you search this song sits
At the top of the page, I'm fucked up this way
That I am now - 'cause all the dirt I saw digged

Wish you were not there for my whole life
Kill yourself, Drunk on Heroin one night
Until then - Consider this as me Burying You Alive


[Verse: Braidz]
You wanna talk about heart-broken?
Let's remember the past, open it
I was seven you parked openly
At some shifty ass playground on Springvale Road
Injected your syringe of dope
Passed out and almost died and we didn't even know!
We were kids, we shown and didn't know how dangerous it was
Thought you were asleep so we played and ran off
'Til a stranger came across you, deranged and in alot of puke
So we got left behind when the ambulance came and got you!
One day I found bud - told me it was herbs for cooking
Told me to not go into the shower downstairs - Never had the nerve to look in
It's ironic now, 'cause those herbs have cooked me
If I were to speak to your pride? I'd say "You heard me pussy"
That's a Lion joke, it's funny 'cause you're a lying joke
Told me I sucked at smoking weed but I could always get higher though
You probably can't remember but I was born in the 90's bro
Wanna punch on? It's different now, because of Ice and dope - knives are shown
But you know that, don't you? Went to stab at my chick
I stood up grabbed the scissors straight slashing my grip
Had to get stitches - Can't really use my hand anymore well
But it's still fuckin' strong enough to jab at ya' jaw pal!


[Hook: Braidz]
I'm sick of all this hurt you've caused me

[Chorus: Sampled]
Smoked out, Choked Up, if you want the cheeba
Gettin' high on that reefer, Gettin' high on that reefer
Smoked out, Choked Up, if you want the cheeba
Gettin' high on that reefer, Gettin' high on that reefer
I'm Smoking hella' potent homie this is what I'm saying
I ain't never changing my plans, either way I'm staying
Smoked out, Choked Up, if you want the cheeba
Gettin' high on that reefer, Gettin' high on that reefer


[Verse: Braidz]
Riding on a White Rhino bitch I'm hella' faded
Smoke a bong at 4:20 with the east coast, breath smoke
Down all day with T.H.C like it's a gang I made up
And when we ain't smoking on the weed bro we go beast mode
It opens your focus to know and to see
Corrosion eroding the host that you be
Although as a stoner you choke when you breathe
The globe is your ocean to soak in your seed
I'm open to speak if you smoke up with me
Talk about all of your hopes and your dreams
Sit on the sofa and toke on the most of the potent of tree's like we're hoping we'll green!
I stay puffing the weed - though it sounds corny
If I were to get up in the scene I'd take drugs overseas - Schapelle Corby
This shit has fell for me - Cupid with a bong
On bud I feel so musical like movies with some songs
(Uh) I'mma be high for life, I'm high 9 to 5 and then 5 to 9
Most people wake up and they rise and shine, I rise and light
Damn I like my life
Because we...


[Chorus: Sampled]
Smoked out, Choked Up, if you want the cheeba
Gettin' high on that reefer, Gettin' high on that reefer
Smoked out, Choked Up, if you want the cheeba
Gettin' high on that reefer, Gettin' high on that reefer
I'm Smoking hella' potent homie this is what I'm saying
I ain't never changing my plans, either way I'm staying
Smoked out, Choked Up, if you want the cheeba
Gettin' high on that reefer, Gettin' high on that reefer


[Verse: Romeo, The Regretful]
Hello it's Romeo, The Regretful
I smoke so much I've got a head-full
Of smoke and mirrors
Staring at a better part of me, But it's so hard to see
These intentions through this broken mirror
Look I hope to limit myself yet I never go the distance for help
See I never chose discipline or health
To the point where I toke on a spliff and I'm fine
Have a couple cones, yeah I'm alright
But I end up smoking all day and night
To the point where I had to let go of my mind
For the seventy sixth time in two nights, See foresight
Could have seen that my (?)
Would diminish my intellectual harvest
And at the same time, it will motivate my (?) grind to go break stuff
And my willpower's a Limp Bizkit if I happen to Blaze up...
So I understand if you don't understand why I wake up
And roll a blunt using the pages of your newspaper
Sydney Morning Herald, SMH, Shaking My Head
Guess I'll stay right here puffing on my favourite
Strain yeah, that's ghost train haze baby
All in all man I like my life because I'm


[Chorus: Sampled]
Smoked out, Choked Up, if you want the cheeba
Gettin' high on that reefer, Gettin' high on that reefer
Smoked out, Choked Up, if you want the cheeba
Gettin' high on that reefer, Gettin' high on that reefer
I'm Smoking hella' potent homie this is what I'm saying
I ain't never changing my plans, either way I'm staying
Smoked out, Choked Up, if you want the cheeba
Gettin' high on that reefer, Gettin' high on that reefer


[Bridge: Romeo, The Regretful]
Cannabis is not to blame for the issues that people get with it
Treat it with moderation and learn to keep use steady-ish
It can make you fly to the greatest height that's when it hits
Or it can make you penniless if you use it to fill your emptiness
Like, Oh god....
Track Name: Day That I Drop (ft. Mini Coop, Clue & Matt Coburn)
Annotated @ http://genius.com/Braidz-mc-day-that-i-drop-lyrics


[Hook: DJ Corbett]
I dunno where I'm going, but I know where I've been
And I've done did this a thousand times before, shit I'm finna' do it again
'Cause I gotta keep moving, 'Cause the game ain't gon' stop (nah)
And I gotta keep moving 'til the Day That I Drop


[Verse: Braidz]
On the day that I drop they'll be praying I flop
Because my aim's to take the game straight faced to the top
I dunno' what the fuck I'm still here representing for
'Cause every-time I spread My Grain I end up with my Head All Sore
But follow my spirit I make em swallow their lyrics
There's more cunts in the scene than in a gynecology clinic
And I can't be bothered with women, 'less they got tits and a cunt
Guess I am a bitch - 'cause I'm not giving a fuck
Ya'll some Pimples I Passed I heard your intro and Paused
Average bars, wack delivery, a shit flow and more
I'm fucking sick of you all...
I'mma open Jim Morrison's casket
Then Push you in through The Doors
They're asking "How your tracks this good, when your battle was a crack-up?"
'Cause bitch I'm a Rapper not an A'Capella Actor
That's why I'll only show respect if you're showing it back dude
What's the point of putting Hands Out if no one wants to Dab you?
Sick of all this shit around me so I'm pushing past
Just a Rebel Kid coming out the Rookie Class
And I know I Drag-on about the Fire I Spit, though
Been through Hell so when I reach my Peak I'mma get Brim-Stoned!


[Hook: DJ Corbett]
I dunno where I'm going, but I know where I've been
And I've done did this a thousand times before, shit I'm finna' do it again
'Cause I gotta keep moving, 'Cause the game ain't gon' stop (nah)
And I gotta keep moving 'til the Day That I Drop


[Sample: Riddler - Batman The Animated Series]
This is it. The end of the game, I'm a little sad actually, you were a worthy opponent but then, I told you I'd make a Killing...


[Verse: Clue]
Until the day I drop I got 'em body rocking put em in a coffin
Throw a box of lozenges at rapper's 'cause I got em coughin'
Spewing up their words it's not enough as if they're trying to stop him
Knocking down a B-boy when I'm rapping, shit they pop and lockin
[Nah they Papa Doc-ing](10872155)
And I'm the up and comer from the country who will stand on stage to get the people bopping
I stay climbing up the ladder know I'm never stopping
[We're not on a road but man these chickens don't know who they're crossing](10872172)
I mean, how do they not know I've got the sick flows?
The kid to come along and set the bars alight like Flaming Moes
The kid to murder rappers 'til the tags are on all ten toes
The monster now responds with just a line you know I break bones
They don't even wanna' listen 'cause they inefficient
With the lines I'm spitting blowing up just like a super villain
[Now when I party bring the town out - Chris Farley](10872187)
[These kid's still wishing I'mma bow out - Prince Ali](10872197)


[Hook: DJ Corbett]
I dunno where I'm going, but I know where I've been
And I've done did this a thousand times before, shit I'm finna' do it again
'Cause I gotta keep moving, 'Cause the game ain't gon' stop (nah)
And I gotta keep moving 'til the Day That I Drop


[Verse: Matt Coburn]
Did it on my own I did it in my own way
Own car I am drifting in my own lane
Never did conform I listen to my own brain
Back to the lab again I'm never stopping, no way
Tripping out thinking way back when I started this
Some people used to laugh but now they're slowly getting it
I've practiced every single moment that I ever really get
It will pay off...
Listen in
You have never heard of me that really is absurd too me
'Cause certainly my rhymes and beats are 'gonna 'cause a murder scene
They're chopping heads off perfectly, it leaves 'em in the dirt it seems
That every thing I ever speak or write is making history
Kicking goals, anybody got the mark?
Arrogance my headspace, let me go and learn my craft
Don't be caught behind, make a start
Couple years we'll be blowing in the fucking stars


[Hook: DJ Corbett]
I dunno where I'm going, but I know where I've been
And I've done did this a thousand times before, shit I'm finna' do it again
'Cause I gotta keep moving, 'Cause the game ain't gon' stop (nah)
And I gotta keep moving 'til the Day That I Drop


[Verse: Mini Coop]
It's Mini Coop and yeah we at it again
Bringing you another classic for the addicts to pen
So whattup?! To the fans who will always support me
I make the crowd come together - like a well-timed orgy
And it's off to the races no time for wasting
Got off to a slow start but now I got 'em chasing like
Step one, Step two
Killing every booth with just a check one, check two
'Bout to make a move so where the groove at? 'Cause these dudes are off-beat
And where the tunes at? 'Cause these singers are sloppy
Turning down collabs I ain't tryna' be cocky
Got these kids fucking with I ain't tryna' be Cosby, yo
They green in the face, Somebody stop me
Got these Jim Carry-esque Men thinking they've got me
A little busy trying to tell your girl to get off me
Been hot from the ground up - trying to be coffee
Not chasing the money, not chasing the fame
Not chasing the honey's, not playing the game
But I'mma get it anyways 'til everybody knows my name
I'm legitimately ill they illegitimate okay?
And that's the difference...


[Hook: DJ Corbett]
I dunno where I'm going, but I know where I've been
And I've done did this a thousand times before, shit I'm finna' do it again
'Cause I gotta keep moving, 'Cause the game ain't gon' stop (nah)
And I gotta keep moving 'til the Day That I Drop

[Hook: Sampled]
(?), On my mind, On my mind, On my mind
(?), On my mind, On my mind, On my mind


[Verse: Braidz]
I got some things playing on my mind bro
Fam' labelled me psycho, blamed it on hydro
Though even before weed I would think about mad shit
But since smoking I'm more open 'bout my different stances
I see dudes falling into the trap of internet raps
Think they're On A Roll like the Michelin Man sitting at Grad'
When they're simpler than an idiots maths to a physicist, man
Viral on the web but at shows got crickets for fans
These promoters who don't promote
Are like loners who aren't alone
Stoners who do not smoke
Homeowners without a home
Just phony's without their phones and when the cables are cut?
It's ironic I'm Dis-Abled when you ain't This Able as bruz
I'm labelled a cunt - like pussy tatts, for pushing facts
This scene used to be hard 'til rookies crashed with sooky crap
And now everyone's politically correct
Fronting used to be taboo now they ain't really thinking what they've said...


[Hook: Sampled]
(?), On my mind, On my mind, On my mind
(?), On my mind, On my mind, On my mind


[Verse: Braidz]
And I don't get this new wave of dude hating, news making feminists
Protest that shit to me you'll catch a boot off my premises
I hope this ain't taken as me preaching misogyny
Just honestly bothers me 'cause I believe in true equality
It's about supremacy now, you won so get lost
All this Bleeding Out The Gash is just a Cut Full Of Salt
And you can beg my pardon if wrong
They spend less time for charges they've got
I guess that's why they thought to start an Assault
While I just sit back laughing at America's gun law's
If you ain't stepping to your government, the fuck you need guns for?
That amendment you're defending is there for your protection
Should they ever be getting hectic in the future times - like the present
You should know by now that I speak what I feel
Would you rather me be fake or stay keeping it real
I guess the more that the screws loose, the deeper the drill
In this field there's a heap but still not heaps in my field
A real artist...
