The Raleigh rapper shares his latest visuals.

By Jordan Darville

September 18, 2020

Mez is a Raleigh, North Carolina artist known for rapping, but he’s also worked with J. Cole’s Dreamville as a creative director and did a shoe for Puma. Today, he’s the host of a fake TV shopping network for his new music video “Loading.” The products on sale are top-of-the-shelf: the Hotep Kit, a book called How to Change Your Handshake for Suburban Living, a delicious looking cereal called “Hoop Dream-O’s” (sponsored by none other than T.J. Walker of the Indiana Pacers) and more. Funny stuff, but the song’s refrain of “Who’s gonna save us?” hints at something deeper, and Mez obligingly unpacks it in his verses. Watch above.

Ajj – Survival Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I broke my promise on a very sharp rock
And I was possessed by something quite unfriendly
And I was haunted by a demon in my sleep

[Refrain]
And that’s how I learned how to survive

[Verse 2]
And I gave a beer to a bum that was drinking
And I gave some sauce to my bestest friend for cooking
And I gave water to all I thought were thirsty

[Refrain]
And that’s how I learned how to survive

[Verse 3]
And I gave some money to my bank for safe keeping
And I gave some money to my landlord, he was needing it
And I gave attention to the TV that was bleeding

[Refrain]
And that’s how I learned how to survive

[Bridge]
If you ain’t got the do-re-mi boys
If you ain’t got the do-re-mi
Well you better go back to beautiful Texas
Oklahoma, Kansas, Georgia, Tennessee
California is a garden of Eden
A paradise to live in or see
But believe it or not, you won’t find it so hot
If you ain’t got the do-re-mi

[Verse 4]
And I just ripped off a man named Woody Guthrie
And I bought a restaurant for his son named Alice
And I fed false information to the audience

[Refrain]
And that’s how I learned how to survive

[Verse 5]
I give a thank you to my father for leaving me
And I give a finger to my stepfather for beating me
And I give props to myself for achieving
God damn I’m glad that I survived
God damn I am glad that I survived

[Outro]
I just handed you a giant load of gibberish
And I give love to a lover quite deserving of it
And I give thanks to all of you for listening to the story
Of how we all learned how to survive

Martha – Do Nothing Lyrics

You called in sick for work
Leaving some details unspoken
And spent the day in bed
‘Cause your beating heart was broken
Paracetamol and Countdown
On mute on the TV
Thinking, ‘Have I always been like this?’
The arithmetic repeats

Mulling over your achievements
Everything you haven’t done
Chalking off another milestone
Close the curtains, set the sun
Never ever wanna ever wanna go outside
Pull that duvet close and tight
Just ignore the dying light
Count back to one

They say do whatever feels right
But nothing ever feels right
Weighing up the options
Do nothing, do nothing
Do nothing all day, when that song plays, your hands cover your face
Feels like nothing’s ever gonna change

[Instrumental break]

Years ago, sat by the road
Waiting for the van to tow us home
I was cursing my old car
And you were looking at the stars and you said
“Everything is infinite but nothing is eternal.”
“Naive romantic shite,” I thought, until I wrote it in my journal

I won’t ever claim to have an answer
I’m just hoping there’s a chance that
When the darkness gets around to leaving
We can get together for an evening

I won’t claim to have an answer
I’m just hoping there’s a chance that
When the darkness gets around to leaving
We can get together for an evening

Nothing is eternal
Nothing is eternal
Everything is infinite
But nothing is eternal

Nothing is eternal
Nothing is eternal
Everything is infinite
But nothing is eternal

Hands Off Gretel – I Want The World Lyrics

I’m the baddest, I’m the goddess, I’m the one that spoke
Your mental highness make me die miss make me wanna choke
I’ve got a list of all I’ve wanted, wanted in this girl
So give me all I’ve ever wanted, ever wanted now

And now I’ve got my world
Buried six feet under all those to ever doubt I’d ever rule my world
It’s all I’ve..

All I’ve ever wanted was to sing songs at my show but singing songs will never feed my ache and now I wanna show the world exactly what I’ve got but not just the world. I Wanna show the whole world!

I’m the rudest, I’m the cutest, I’m the one that hurts
You’re jealous are ya? Girl on fire! Girl to crash and burn!
I’m the sweetest see the truth is there’s no word for that, that I want
So give me all i’ve ever wanted, ever wanted now!

And now i’ve got my world
Buried six feet under all those to waste my time
There’s pain in my mind, It’s for the last time

All i’ve ever wanted was to see myself on TV but lately i’ve been thinking I will never be. The girl I’ve always pictured is much stronger as a dream cos the truth is I don’t think i have it in me!

WORLD! I WANT THE WHOLE WORLD! And not just the world yeah, i want the world, big shiny big old world oh yeah yeah yeah… and not just the world! I want the whole world..

Bad Sounds – Zacharia Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Zacharia Zacharia
Anxiety messiah
You’re a bad babysitter
But good at being quiet
Zacharia Zacharia, Zacharia

[Verse 2]
Yeah it’s cheap, it came from china
Your stomach liner
You’re the kind that gets weak at the knees
And you ramble when you start to speak

[Chorus]
Zacharia, liar
I feel where you’re coming from
Zacharia, liar
Like you, I was born in the baby boom

[Verse 3]
Zach-of-mia, Zacharia
It’s fine you’re tired
There might be something good on TV
And she knows it’s cheap it came from china
Your stomach liner
You’re the kind that gets weak at the knees
And it knocks you off of your feet

[Chorus]
Zacharia, liar
I feel where you’re coming from
Zacharia, liar
You know I was born in the baby boom
Zacharia, liar
I feel where youre coming from
Zacharia, liar
Like you I was born in the baby boom

[Outro]
Zacharia talks a lot and he worries about what he’s said loads
Later in bed loads
And loads, and loads, and loads

Cassandra Complex – Prairie Bitch Lyrics

Switch on
Pina, beautiful angel
Take my hand, lead me
Across the sand
To the promised land
Face the sun
Face the truth
Face the enemy
Oh, Pina, face the truth in me
Fading scars, white lies
T.V. stories
T.V. is everything
I’m falling, falling down
Fall in, fall out
Oh, Pina, I’m your prisoner
Pina, beautiful alien
Dance with me, take my hand
Oh, Pina, be with me
Realpolitik, realpolitik
Liebe, liebepolitik
Oh, Pina
March over me
TV is everything

Capital Inicial – Leve Desespero Lyrics

Não consigo mais me concentrar
Vou tentar alguma coisa para melhorar
É importante, todos me dizem
Mas nada me acontece como eu queria

Estou perdido, sei que estou
Cego para assuntos banais
Problemas do cotidiano
Ja não sei como resolver

Sob um leve desespero
Que me leva, que me leva daqui

Então é outra noite num bar
Um copo atrás do outro
Procuro trocados no meu bolso
Dá pra me arrumar um cigarro?

Não consigo mais me concentrar
Vou tentar alguma coisa para melhorar
Já estou vendo TV como companhia

Talvez se você entendesse
O que está acontecendo
Poderia me explicar
Eu não saio do meu canto
As paredes me impedem
Eu só queria me divertir
As paredes me impedem
Já estou vendo TV como companhia

April – The Impossible Task Of Feeling Complete Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Blue eyes
Oh, they seem so easy to love
White lies
Always seem so easy to brush under the rug
Myself and I
We were born in a fiery rage, not out of love
Oh, why?
Oh, why?

[Chorus]
Mama, please listen
Something is missing
I don’t feel the same in my skin
I wake in the evening
And sleep through the morning
I feel as though I’ll never win
Was it the TV who raised me to go slightly crazy?
The words I would hear every day
The books I was reading taught me that feeling
This way is okay

[Verse 2]
Oh God, if I asked for blessing
Would you send it on my way?
‘Cause applause ignites a strange feeling
And it doesn’t seem to fade
Mark my words, I will find a way
To feel complete, do whatever I takes
I will drink every drink, walk every road
I will find another me and I will fall in love

[Chorus]
Mama, please listen
Something is missing
I don’t feel the same in my skin
I wake in the evening
And sleep through the morning
I feel as though I’ll never win
Was it the TV who raised me to go slightly crazy?
The words I would hear every day
The books I was reading taught me that feeling
This way is okay

Gutterball – Black And Gold Lyrics

Soon as the sun goes down we’re gonna take a little walk outside
Down past the river, down by the railroad tracks
You and I all alone beneath the glow of the city lights
High octane and a book of matches cast a pretty glow against the sky
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

I saw on TV where this guy outside of St. Paul shot up a diner for no reason
At all
I swear on my life I wouldn’t want to use a gun
But a little fire now and then never hurt anyone
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

You in your dress, me in my father’s suit
We’re gonna join hands as the colors begin to shoot
Wait until the flames are burning hogh
Cause I wanna prove my love to you against the midnight sky
Black and gold

Flatsound – The Art Of Not Thinking About It Lyrics

I heard your footsteps on my wooden floor
It was on that bed that we ignored the TV we used for light
Your fingertips were so secure
When you spoke I felt your words burning through my chest
Cause happiness is close
I can feel it in my bones
Like inhaling the morning winter coast
I’m not alone
I’m not alone
I’m not alone
I’m not alone
I’m not alone
I’m not alone
Cause I can feel you breathe
When your chest and my chest meet
In a pattern like the waves on the beach
Let’s be honest
I don’t know how not to think about these things that keep me up
It’s just I’ve been so frightened by these awful thoughts
Im afraid my body’s had enough
And my chest caves in
And my heart gives up
But I feel it now
And it’s stronger than it’s ever been before
But I know that it’s okay
Cause you came with me to the doctor
And I looked him in the eyes
And said I don’t need your pills to survive
All I needs this girl beside me
These words I feel inside me
And I cry to you so quietly
I said I’m scared but is this likely
That I’m dying without fighting
That my children will despise me
Cause their father was a pansie
With a fragile shaking body
And a mind that can’t stop thinking
And these eyes they can’t stop crying
But I’ll be fine as long as nothing
Ever stops this heart from loving you
Loving you

Cadence Weapon – Getting Dumb Lyrics

Don’t go dumb, we ain’t that close to the bay
I’m just talking about, some of the things that we say
It seems we’re all at war, with a sinister art
They use the supermarket sales when they administer charts
Now baby, be yourself, man, you don’t have to check
You don’t have to play the songs that they got in their decks
But where’d the rudeboys go, they’re a band on the run
They rap like turning some tricks, but they ain’t havin’ no fun

Where’d you go, I’m always here
Whatever you need, I’m always near
And I know you, are losing touch
And I know, you’re getting dumb

Shoot your TV, come on, I know you can do it
I got a itchy trigger finger, I can walk you right through it
Girls, they talk like Friends, in their lunch conversation
Generation gap jumpers, wrapped in observations
Man, I sell that rap to the Globe And Mail
I’m used to sailing ships just to get those sales
Man, but don’t sell out, to the advert crews
30 seconds, take your song, they get it microbrewed

Where’d you go, I’m always here
Whatever you need, I’m always near
And I know you, are losing touch
And I know, you’re getting dumb

Alien Sex Fiend – Satisfaction Lyrics

Press the button

Here we go now
I can’t get no satisfaction
I can’t get no satisfaction
‘Cause I try, and I try, and I try, and I try
I can’t get me no, I can’t get no

When I’m driving in my car
And a man comes on the radio
Tellin’ me more and more
About some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination
I can’t get no, no-no-no
Hey-hey-hey, that’s what I say

Satisfaction
I can’t get no satisfaction
‘Cause I try, and I try, and I try, and I try
I can’t get no, I can’t get no

When I’m watching my TV
And a man comes on and tells me
How white my shirts can be
Well, he can’t be a man ’cause he doesn’t smoke
The same cigarettes as me
I can’t get no, I can’t get no, I can’t get no
Hey-hey-hey, that’s what I say

I can’t get no satisfaction
I can’t get no girl reaction
‘Cause I try, and I try, and I try, and I try
I can’t get no, I can’t get no

When I’m riding ’round the world
And I’m doing this and I’m signin’ that
And I’m tryin’ to make some girl
Tryin’ to make some girl
Baby, better come back later next week
‘Cause you see I’m on a losin’ streak
I can’t get no, no-no-no
Hey-hey-hey, that’s what I say

I can’t get no
I can’t get no
I can’t get no
Satisfaction
I can’t get me no
No satisfaction
No satisfaction
Satisfaction

Rashid – Casca Lyrics

[Letra de “Casca” com Rashid]

[Intro]
Ah-ah
Com licença
Ah… Com licença
Pessoal
Pessoal? Ei?

[Refrão]
Olha pra mim
Olha pra mim
Desde quando me tornei vazio assim?
Olha pra mim
Só pra suprir o que os outros esperam de mim
Esperam de mim
Até quando a resposta é não, tenho dito sim
Olha pra mim

[Verso 1]
Tenho fingido amar meu emprego
Tenho sorrido por educação
Tento praticar o desapego
Tenho fingido gostar do patrão
Cumprimento as pessoas na sala
Perco horas em frente à TV
E até o racismo velado do supervisor lá da firma eu finjo não ver
Ah, que mais vocês querem de mim, porra?
Trampo igual formiga e até de política evito falar
Porque vocês são burro e eu não quero briga
Minha casca já tá por um triz e o demônio pede bis
Mas isso não é um casamento abusivo pra eu tá me ferrando e fingir ser feliz
Eu não tenho ventríloquo, não sou a merda de um boneco
Já não basta ‘cês terem enchido meu bairro de depressão e boteco
A revolta é tanta, quase tenho um treco, então oremos
Porque nossa verdade é uma coisa inventada pra grande mentira que a gente vive doer um pouco menos

[Refrão]
Olha pra mim
Olha pra mim
Desde quando me tornei vazio assim?
Olha pra mim
Só pra suprir o que os outros esperam de mim
Esperam de mim
Até quando a resposta é não, tenho dito sim
Olha pra mim

[Pós-Refrão]
Ser o que não é, é um fardo e tanto
Só pra ser aceito por quem não quer aceitar
Que tentar ser o que não é, é um fardo e tanto
Só pra ter a vida que outros vão aprovar (Oh shit)

[Verso 2]
Tem que se vestir bem, só que bem pra quem?
Tem que se portar bem, falar bem também
Menino, faz a barba, lute e seja alguém
Olha que sem marido a mulher não é ninguém
Vai estudar, trampar, casar e ter neném
Hoje sem diploma futuro não tem
Mas que cabelo é esse? Tá achando que é quem?
Todo Peter Parker tem sua Mary Jane
Em que momento nessa história o que eu quero importa?

[Refrão]
Olha pra mim
Olha pra mim
Desde quando me tornei vazio assim?
Olha pra mim
Só pra suprir o que os outros esperam de mim
Esperam de mim
Até quando a resposta é não, tenho dito sim
Olha pra mim, yeah

[Pós-Refrão]
Ser o que não é, é um fardo e tanto
Só pra ser aceito por quem não quer aceitar
Que tentar ser o que não é, é um fardo e tanto
Só pra ter a vida que outros vão aprovar

Elio E Le Storie Tese – Pensiero Stupesce Lyrics

-Diegetico, politico, poetico!
“Natale con la casta”
Nei migliori cinema!-

La TV è come la mafia: non se ne esce
Se non da morti
Uno che conoscevamo ci è riuscito
Però poi si è impiccato

Dopo la TV c’è il cinema
Dopo il cinema la radio e poi la morte

Alla fine l’unica cosa seria in Italia
È la ristorazione
Che bella gente e che buon vino!
Oh yeah!

Recitazione, copione, intensità e faccia di merda

Boris Boris Boris Boris
Boris al cinema
-“Natale con la casta”!-
Boris Boris Boris Boris
Boris al cinema
-Nei normali cinema!-

Pensiero stupesce
Che nasce e perisce
Che cresce e decresce
Che rientra e fuoriesce
Ma attenti alle lische!

Pensiero stupesce
Che la gente rapisce nel cinematografo
Con l’impepata di cozze

Quando un telefilm di culto approda al grande schermo
Solitamente
È una ciofeca tipo “Sesso and the city 2”

Per fare botteghino ci vuole un bel “Natale con la casta”
-“Natale con la casta”!-

Pensiero stupesce
Che inizia e finisce
Che cresce e decresce
Che rientra e fuoriesce
Ma attenti alle lische!

Pensiero stupesce
Che la gente rapisce nel cinematografo
Con l’impepata di cozze

Boris Boris Boris Boris

-Scaricato dai siti russi pirati!-

-In videocassetta!-

-Com’era?

Alexander 23 – The Internet Lyrics

[Verse 1]
My brain is a scary place
So I spend my time on the internet
Surf waves on a board that’s made of keys
All my friends are usernames and passwords
That light up my screen, but afterwards I’m right back in the dark

[Chorus]
I don’t know who I’m not scared of
Who I was or who I have become
Oh, God, if you exist, I could use some help with this
I don’t know who I’m not scared of
Who I was or who I have become
Oh, God, if you exist, I could use some help with this

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, God (I’m losing my mind, losing my mind, losing my)
Oh, God (I’m losing my mind, losing my mind, losing my)

[Verse 2]
My heart has a scary face
So I spend my time facing silhouettes
‘Cause you left, but your shadow’s all I see
And I keep the TV on so that the lonely ain’t so low
But I’m still the only voice I can’t hear in my head

[Chorus]
I don’t know who I’m not scared of
Who I was or who I have become
Oh, God, if you exist, I could use some help with this
I don’t know who I’m not scared of
Who I was or who I have become
Oh, God, if you exist, I could use some help with this

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, God (I’m osing my mind, losing my mind, losing my)
Oh, God (I’m losing my mind, losing my mind, losing my)

[Outro]
(I’m losing my mind, losing my mind, losing my)
(I’m losing my mind, losing my mind, losing my)

Alltta – Holy Toast Lyrics (feat. 20syl & Mr. J. Medeiros)

In people without religion
In steeples crowded with pigeons
In visions of evil
Through the key hole out of the prison
Without a decision, fishing, in a father that listens
In a tower, around a collar, in Obama’s position
For the power, dollars, division, and the honor it’s given
In a martyr, in women, in Shawn Carter, in all children
Shrouded in Turin
Burning in shrubs, learning to love, rounding a turban
On the curb, in the club with a bourbon and drunk
In sermons, in a permanent slump determined to flunk
As a vermin making earnings from trunks
Serving the junks
Cus I need Him most, bleeding on the cement
In a sea of demons- beaming
Being treated with a chemo dose
Seated with a vino within a scene of latinos
He was seen hosting a feast in His medieval clothes
Cleaning all our feet with soap, speaking to ghosts
Leading a pope, beaten and broke
Even on a piece of toast
And He the most eaten with the least
In a fetus, in a golden fleece
Meeting with the chief, with elitists
In a genius, when that athlete was defeated
In the math, in an atom blast, every time my team wins
To hide a lie and to achieve spins
For me to be idolized, on a drive, for my own reasons
Because they tell me it’s a lesson in our rebirth
Because in hell our breath burns and our knees hurt
Because we know He knelt with lepers and freed serfs
Because it helps sell records and t-shirts
Books, hats, stickers, sweaters, and knee skirts
And in good, bad, and indifferent weather I see works
In the hood tatted, with little help from the priest circuit
In the woods, mad at belief, and a tree serpent
And where the church is, and the worst is
These surface statements lead’em to a basement where they hurt kids
Sure did, burning the earth, cursed, learning to surf
First, with a thirst, and this myrrh
He was bursting from a nova, surfacing from a coma
Said the person who rolled up cursing his melanoma
When I was worthy to no one and now I’m worthy to know Him
With iron sharpening iron with fire, lions, and sultans
Admired, tired, with liars, with friars, choirs exalting
And now I’m revolting, as a squire, high in the vaulted ceilings
In kneeling, bent in a tent begging for healing
Wheeling and dealing, begging for rent, ain’t that appealing
At least’s that’s what he said before his hands started feeling
So the yeast ain’t in my bread to recall the land I am free from
And He is just one and He’s all three
Calling me to give some love to teens with palsy
As seen on TV, we sing till all free
As seen with three Kings, so bring some offerings
Think
Is it a cult of personality
A cultural excursion, multiverse, a formality
The bulk of all our worth a sullied earth an abnormality
A skull for every version a person who passes casually
Calloused at birth an Alice in search of causality
Plausible audible now are all called applaudable
Shouting like Roland Orzabal will all fall like quarters in ears
If you doubting the magician is here
Listen if you can hear to the heart of it all
To the subtle consciousness that has started it all
To the chart on the wall even to the art of the fall
Reaching to the bark was the arch of it all
Reaching to the bark was the arch of it all
Reaching to the bark was the arch of it all
Reaching to the bark was the arch of it all

Sucking out reflection of a broken man who’s doing it alone

Joseph Andreoli – Love Song Lyrics

In a bottle
On a shelf
A little me
In a tiny house
In a little world
With no one else
I blink and stare the day away

Little later
Step out my door
Look from the edge of my shelf
Down onto the floor
It’s quite a distance
Or so it seems
I go back inside and turn on the TV

At night I dream
Of a cat on my shelf
Tipping the bottle
With me in my house
Sometimes I think
It would be alright
A little kitty paw
And out goes the light

Then one day
While watching TV
I hear a noise
Outside next to me
I go outside
Look on my shelf
It’s a little girl with a little house

From bottle to bottle
We wave and shout
And play little games
That we’ve figured out
And if that cat comes by
We’ll frown and say:
Go away
Go away
And it will go away

Izzy Lucid – Sky Lyrics

[Intro]
Now I be living in the sky
I be living in the sky
Everybody knows when I write
I feel high
And I feel so alive
I’m just tryna get mine
Take No days off
I be on my grind

[Verse 1]
I be living in the skies
I ain’t in it for the fame
I mean its good to have money
And the cars and the mamis from the cape
But that ain’t really
What I’m here for
Ever had the feeling that you could be
Achieving and getting so much more
Than what you came for
Or what you aimed for
Ever looked at your reflection
Asking what you made for
What you tryna kill my faith for
Tryna see me fall
Every time i feed my passion
It feels like a reward
Every night I’m thinking about my momma
Will she be proud
Of who her son turned into
When he started facing big crowds
When he started writing feelings out
On a page, don’t make the wrong play
Keep your faith when they’re
Trying to bring your dream down
So pass me a page and a pen
As I lay and begin
To listen to this beat
Over and over again
And get into to my zone
If it’s meant to be
Chasing dreams as I only see
The destination of my life
Being the change this world needs
Setting worlds free
On a 3rd world basis
These days you can’t even tell
The realest from the fakest
It’s getting later
So we eating cake below the waist first
Look at me now I swear
Momma I’m gonna be the greatest (Greatest)

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m living in the sky
Everybody knows we about to get right
Yeah, I’m living in the sky
Man this music makes me feel so alive
So alive

[Chorus]
I be living in the sky, I be living in the sky
Everybody knows we about to get right
I be living in the sky, I be living in the sky
Man this music makes me feel so alive (so alive)
I be living in the sky, I be living in the sky (in the sky)
Every body knows when I write I feel high
And I feel so alive
I’m just trying to get mine
Take No days off
I be on my grind
Said I be on my

[Verse 2]
I see the way they look at me
I hear the way they talk about me
Putting me down but yet they
Still acting like a friend around me
Tell me that ain’t bullshit
I ain’t gonna lose grip
I’m fresh like a mint and I’m a prince
You could call me will Smith, get it?
How you say that Izzy Lucid
Ain’t a big deal
Like this nigga’s useless
Wasting all his good years
But you niggas chilling at your call centre desks
While I am getting on your
TV screens and radios making this dream real
And God I hope we make it
I’m tryna give my mom the things she wanted
But she gave up
For me and everything
She always seems to dream about
I pray she stays alive to see
Me make a success of myself

[Bridge]
I pray for help
I pray for help
Yeah
I don’t want this for myself
For my family what else
Yeah
I pray for help

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m living in the sky
Everybody knows we about to get right
Yeah, I’m living in the sky
Man this music makes me feel so alive
So alive hey

[Chorus]
I be living in the sky, I be living in the sky (so alive hey)
Everybody knows we about to get right
I be living in the sky, I be living in the sky
Man this music makes me feel so alive
I be living in the sky, I be living in the sky
Every body knows when I write I feel high
And I feel so alive
I’m just tryna get mine
Take no days off
I be on my grind
Said I be on my

[Verse 3]
This a sky vibe
Only I fly
If you check the clock man
This is my time
Now before I die
Comfort in the most high
You can’t expect the very best
If you don’t even try
You see these niggas
Don’t know love no more (Don’t know)
In these streets a lot of dreams
Just get buried before
It can even be achieved
Before it gets to the door
What’s in store for a young nigga
In the heart of Egoli
I’m just telling my story
I have hidden emotions
Shit I don’t tell people
And it drowns me like an ocean
But the love I get and give
That shit keeps me floating
Before the Lord comes through
And puts me up on his boat

[Outro]
And pray for help
I pray help
I don’t want this for myself
Yeah
I pray for help

Sansar Salvo – Politik Analiz Lyrics (feat. Zahriyan)

[Verse 1: Zahriyan]
İçimde varsın dilimle sek duvarsın dilim için duamsın
Sözümde bedduamsın son kanın damlasın
Mezopotamya’da çicekler aksın
Bahar hiç ağlamasın (sobe)
Dilimde damlayıp kapandı karla kirli nağralar
Kapandı şimdi ağrılar masallarım ve martılar
Yıkıp biçen, ezip geçen, bu lehçem anlatır
Gözümde canlanır kilisten İstanbul ah Türkiye
Elimde değnek olsa gücümde varsa
Siyah beyaz duayle?ri arıtsam hafızamda
Artık aldı bomda sesleri
Çukurların içinde saklarınır çocuklar
Yalınayak tamam kudüs dayan tamam
Açık kanal yeter kapat izlemem ben TV
Diskolarda kafa sallayıp çeker vodka hepsi
Reina çıkışları gırgır dimi (oley oley)
Kaçını kaybetti bu vatan sizin için (okey okey)

[Verse 2: Sansar Salvo]
Politik analizi güçlü öğretmen
Sınıfındayım ve bana bi bok öğretmez
Kapital okula **münü geçiren adam
Tribal adama çakala çakalı soran
Çakarak çakmağı güne başlıyorum
Var mı haberin be güzelim düzeni yıkıp
Üzerine çıkıp tepinerek rakı çakıp
Zerafet bi takı takıp kıçı açıp
Çivisi çıkan bişey yok artık boku çıktı
Sürekli savaş herkes çok akıllı
Tamam bende tutmuyorum Tayyip Erdoğan’ı
Ama aralarında göremiyorum daha akıllısını
Punk dinle Sabac Red rap ne bil
Kafasına göre gidiyo çok kopil
2001’den beri yok tatilim
Beni etme Hip Hop’çı katili

Moon Of Steel – Flying High Lyrics

Day after day
It shines in front of you
The screen is our friend
It’s our brother, it’s our father…
You look but don’t see
The screen is our master
Days are no longer without it
Colour power! Thousands of images
In front of your eyes
TV can be pleasant to watch
To dream…
Don’t think just let yourself go
Is it what you want?
Why do its promises
Get lost in the darkness?

I want to fly high, to go beyond
To live the dream in reality
To be satisfied, to be myself

And I, I want to fly
In the sky of your screen
I want to talk, listen to me
Why don’t you answer?
Why don’t you reply?
Please let me in…
Uh! Your friend calls again
Uh! Don’t let him wait
Uh! Hey man! Get up!
Its shallowness is your reality
Like its will is now your conviction
Sexy dolls of celluloid in our dreams
Perfection’s its peculiarity
You wonder with
Less and less conviction
Why it must be, your best friend

Now I’m satisfied…Satisfied
Are you satisfied?

Kath Bloom – Who You Are Lyrics

I went down to the field
At the edge of our town
And I looked at the water
And I looked further down
Hey hey should I drown
Or can I swim that far
Oh what do you do when you don’t like who, who you are?
Well I know I’m not easy
Sometimes I don’t even try
But I wish that I’d held you
Before you said goodbye
As I saw those tears falling
As you got into your car
But that’s what we do when we don’t like who, who we are
Lost, is it too late?
Cost, is it too great?
In the end, the end, the end
Will we have seen
All, all of our dreams?
Now I hear you’ve been drinking
Like you’re sealing your fate
And what’s worse, all your children
May inherit your trait
And I know that you know it
That’s what you said in the bar
That’s what you said, that’s what you said
But that’s what you do when you don’t like who, who you are
I’ll run right to your house
And I’ll get down on my kness
And I’ll beg your forgiveness
Forgive me now, if you please
And we’ll turn up that TV
And we’ll look up at the stars
And that’s what we’ll do when we don’t like who, who we are
And that’s what we’ll do when we don’t like who, who we are

Mario – What You Started Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Oh, on Franklin and Normandy, a house ’bout eighteen deep
Kids play in bloody streets, but why?
Is dope and pro-misery a note for you and me?
You’re taught to live and breathe those lines

[Pre-Chorus]
But you don’t gotta change your life
You just gotta free your mind
Ain’t nobody gon’ do what you do for yourself
You know when it’s wrong or right
Even if it’s black and white
Ain’t nobody gon’ do what you do for yourself

[Chorus]
I know it’s hard to stand what you don’t understand
You wanna say it, but you can’t explain it
I know it’s hard to stand what you don’t understand
Let’s find the fire and finish what you started
Started
What you started
What you started
What you started

[Verse 2]
From 13, the change I’ve seen, TV’s reality
It’s killing all the real inside (None of this is real)
Why raise to the lead with shackles on your feet?
‘Cause nothing is for keeps when you die

[Pre-Chorus]
You don’t gotta change your life
You just gotta cross that line
Ain’t nobody gon’ do what you do for yourself
You know when it’s wrong or right
Even if it’s black and white
Ain’t nobody gon’ do what you do for yourself

[Chorus]
I know it’s hard to stand what you don’t understand
You wanna say it, but you can’t explain it
I know it’s hard to stand what you don’t understand
Let’s find the fire and finish what you started
Started
What you started
What you started
What you started
What you started
What you started
What you started

[Bridge]
Yo, come and come and get this, uh
Everybody gotta feel this
We don’t even need a witness, hey
‘Cause ain’t nobody-body’s business (Hey)
Yo, come and come and get this (Oh, yeah)
Everybody gotta feel this (Oh, feel this)
We don’t even need a witness (We don’t need)
‘Cause ain’t nobody-body’s business (Hey)
Yo, come and come and get this (Oh, yeah)
Everybody gotta feel this (Yeah)
We don’t even need a witness (Yeah)
‘Cause ain’t nobody-body’s business (Hey)
Yo, come and come and get this
Everybody gotta feel this
We don’t even need a witness
‘Cause ain’t nobody-body’s business

[Chorus]
I know it’s hard to stand what you don’t understand
You wanna say it, but you can’t explain it
I know it’s hard to stand what you don’t understand (You’d give anything to understand)
Let’s find the fire and finish what you started
Started
What you started
What you started
What you started
What you started
What you started
What you started

[Outro]
What you started
What you started
What you started
Loving what we started
Ayy, yeah
Let’s finish
Started, yeah
Hey, yeah

Revolution Renaissance – World Doesn’t Get To Me Lyrics

Part of a broken machinery
The same noise is all around
Drums of war in some forgotten land
Echoing in a Christmas card

Life is a highway, we got one chance
So spread all the news, don’t wait

World doesn’t get to me
I am who I am, who I want to be
World doesn’t get to me
So don’t let it get to you

Rat race is running every day
Is that the price you wanna pay?
Reality is just in TV
Plastic Christ in assembly lines

Life is a highway, we got one chance
So spread all the news, don’t wait

World doesn’t get to me
I am who I am, who I want to be
World doesn’t get to me
So don’t let it get to you

The standard of newfound perfection
You’re walking the walk and you’re talking the talk

World doesn’t get to me
I am who I am, who I want to be
World doesn’t get to me
So don’t let it get to you

Elo Da Corrente – Elo Da Corrente Lyrics

[Verso 1: Caio]
Levanto são, não vejo sábios pela rua
Me entrego ao que minha alma cultua diariamente
Sinestesia no ritmo e poesia
A voz dela já me dizia o que viria pela frente
Fujo do tema mas não sou indeciso
A tristeza é inerte, viver não é preciso
Passos e tropeços alternando as sessões
Perdas e conquistas no reger das canções
A gente erra mas não encerra a jornada
De vez em quando a gente ri e à deriva não entende nada
Terra dos loucos entendida por país tropical
Contribuindo nas causas do aquecimento global
Normal pra quem só entende a TV
Fatal nos anos que as saídas sumirão de você
Como a legenda que sobe e ninguém lê
Mas existe já que final repentino não se antevê

[Refrão: Pitzan e Caio]
Elo da Corrente, Caio, PG e Pitzan
A mente no amanhã os pés no presente
Elo da Corrente, a Rhima Rhara não para
A sonoridade equipara os de antigamente (2x)

[Verso 2: Pitzan]
Por onde a vida vai eu pinto minha aquarela
Não sou nenhum Hokusai mas também há cores em minha tela
Talvez não tão vivas, talvez não tão intensas
Porém todas enraizadas em meus princípios e crenças
Além das aparências o Elo leva essa porra
E é assim que será, será até que a gente morra
Mas não é fácil isso que ouço vejo e me sufoca
O que Miguel de Deus cantou hoje em meu peito toca
A morte já me mostrou duas vezes a sua face
E fez com que em meus olhos sua imagem memorizasse
Deixando-me perdido como num labirinto
Não, não vem do frio esse arrepio que sinto
Vem das lembranças desse passado tão vivo
São elas quem tornam o presente menos nocivo
Futuro é um mistério mas mantenho meus critérios na luta
Quem te fez acreditar que a vida é uma disputa?

[Refrão: Pitzan e Caio]
Elo da Corrente, Caio, PG e Pitzan
A mente no amanhã os pés no presente
Elo da Corrente, a Rhima Rhara não para
A sonoridade equipara os de antigamente (2x)

Dragon Boy Suede – Plug Life Lyrics

Look at me! At that Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
Quietly reading, maybe tweeting some tweetings
In walks a d-bag with no courtesy
That’s yakking like a dingbat
No! He sits right next to me!

Should I leave? Should I move?
I don’t want to! My sacred ground’s been stumbled onto

It’s time to make it stop
It’s time to make it end
Reach in my pocket, say hello to my little friends

I live that Plug Life, you know how I do
I got that left ear plug and that right ear plug
I don’t hear you
I don’t hear you
I don’t hear you
I don’t hear you

Can’t hear that guy on his phone
Can’t hear that couple arguing
Can’t hear that pitbull barking tied up outside Boston Market
Can’t hear that motorcycle revving up in front of Target
Or that person cursing while they’re circling cuz they can’t find parking

How to act!
Folks don’t seem to know that
Whether in So Cal, or any other locale

Always got’em with me
Won’t leave home without ’em
It’s like watching TV without the volume

I live that Plug Life, you know how I do
I got that left ear plug and that right ear plug
I don’t hear you
I don’t hear you
I don’t hear you
I don’t hear you

Can’t hear that car alarm
Can’t hear that police siren
Can’t hear that family fighting, don’t care that that baby’s crying
Can’t hear that thunder or that guy who just got struck by lightning
Screaming cuz he caught on fire
I am fine, everything’s quiet

I live that Plug Life, you know how I do
I got that left ear plug and that right ear plug
I don’t hear you
I don’t hear you
I don’t hear you
I don’t hear you

Dr. Yen Lo – Day 70 Lyrics

[Sample]
Something very important has come up, there is something you have to do

[Hook: Ka]
Shine son, your time has come
Respect due, select few tuning in

[Verse 1: Ka]
I write with passion

(Bring it back, bring it back, bring it back)

I write with passion, I’m on my prior doubt
Finished steps to success, that’s what I’m about
From holding book, potent crook took the common route
Should be in pajamas instead of drama with the llamas out
Well feed me, feed me
Whatever need be
Thirsthing at commercials, ain’t no virtue on that TV
Food, toys, cars
Until he was deployed dodge
Was felon, dwelling where the rude boys lost
Turn new leaf from crude beef, thinking like a jewel thief
Trying to school streets
Smooth move em in some [?] beats
In promises of finding their hearts like pulled teeth
Can’t pencil the diction
When essentials was missing
Never peace, [?] streets
I vent with conviction
Wilding like stallion valiant til de-saddle you
Plans of reg corners cancerous, I’m free radical
Days of menace was the mission
Chemist in the kitchen
Dilemmas of addiction, the premise wasn’t fiction
Pen tails is spent shells, how my partners died
Moms good grace, hood trace from my father side
[?] snacks searching tack
First, I’m sure they eat
Bitter cold in my old apartment wouldn’t call it sweet
Track different, lots of scratch, chicken pox, throwing bottles
I peered back, clear fact: endeared whack role models
You guessed it
Pubescent wasn’t too pleasant
I trailed the block, failed a lot, but gave it true effort
The turf raised me, never the word “lazy”
Make every verse crazy as if tomorrow I’ll push my first daisy
“What you do it for?”
I had to do it, more of a cure
Been through it, spilt it, near as filth now my fluid pure
Night armies, pipe zombies
Seen bleak devastation
Of course I felt it lost
Now I speak preservation

[Hook: Ka]
Respect due, select few tuning in
Shine son, the time has come
Soon to win
Shine son, our time has come
