Track Name: Party Planet
Touch down on this planet, couldn't bring any gear
Naked except for my chain, but they have nothing to fear
Jump out the bushes, just a swinging and blinging
All these robot party parts just a clanking, clanging, and banging
All I get is awkward stares like "Dude, what is he doing?"
Just a silicon life form trying to get something, anything moving
Snatched some pants and a jacket, kinda gold and bold for my frame
Looking for the party anyway
Strut down the street, I see some people dancing to the beat
They look they're shuffling all their feet
Maybe it's an every day thing around these parts
But they don't care that I'm a robot
Somewhere along the line I decide to join in
Two guys near the front seem to be the ones leading this shin dig
Crazy glasses, crazy hair, people getting down just everywhere
Cool, I think like this
Now I get pushed up to the front and the beat is driving my circuits crazy - crazy
I'm on the spot and I can't punk out or they're all gonna laugh at me - at me
So I came up with a new dance and I think they'll like it
We call it the Robot two step, they do it on my planet
Just shuffle your feet from side to side
And now that you know this, I gotta go. Bye bye.
Track Name: The Day the World Ended
(Snoring)
(Alarm clock)
Ah!
Oh crap, gotta get up
Throw the covers off myself, feelin' kinda pumped
About to be a good ass day, wanna get it started up
No date or anything, but you still know what's up
Get a shower, brush my teeth, check my phone for some tweets
Brie Nicole texting me silly pics of Bruisey B
Laugh out loud, grab my jacket, jump down the stairs
Step outside, smell that air
New ride in the drive, forgot I bought that one last night
Oh a whim, sitting prim but I can't complain about...
Whoa… what is… what is going on out here?

Being honest I'm trying not to stare
But there's spaceships hovering all in the air
And the army and air force are everywhere
Shit… am I even wearing underwear? (Am I?)

Around that time all hell breaks loose
And here I am contemplating my caboose
Do I jump in the Prime and put it to the test
Avoid all those lasers and missile turrets
Or do I hot foot it back inside to check the state of my naked black behind?
My thoughts are cut short from a artillery barrage
Leaving most of my house the size and shape of my car
Time to duck and run for cover
I ain't no fighter, I'm just a known lover
I've seen enough movies to know what to do
I'm young and black and want to live too
Stick to back alleys, avoid news crews
They'll be the first to go cause they're just a bunch of fools
And don't follow that idiot with the handheld cam
He'll die a horrid death by getting chomped in the head

This is my story about the day the world ended
Spaceships, aliens, big ass monsters
Well, motherfucker, ain't that just splendid
I didn't even get to drive my new car yet.

Made it downtown, I hooked up with some friends
They were subway bound, Cloverfield loose ends
Bailed on them and kept on moving
Stick to the back streets and you won't get boxed in
See the thing is, you have to be smart about what to do, where to go, who to see
Me? I'm in search of loved ones, real special, real close honestly, it not like its a mystery or anything

This is my story about the day the world ended
Spaceships, aliens, big ass monsters
Well, motherfucker, ain't that just splendid
I didn't even get to drive my new car yet.

At some point, I came out into an apartment complex I knew (Oh shit)
Where some of the people from work live, buildings in flames
Spent way too much time searching for all of my faves
Just hoping Morning, Noon, and Night made it out alive
Three of the coolest people I know, it would suck if they died
To other matters, I started running 'cross the yard
That didn't help, I didn't make it very far
E.Ts touched down ready to do their thing
Armored up, weaps ready, and a probe beam
They approached, I backed up, they encircled me
Then in silence with no fear they went to one knee
I was their leader and they came to earth to get me
And take me back to the planet Persiphone
Well then, ain't this some shit
Let's load up boys and get out of this bitch
But wait, let's take ten on the trip
Now who the hell am I gonna pick?

(Snoring)
(Alarm clock)

Ah!
Oh crap, gotta get up
Throw the covers off myself, feelin' kinda pumped
About to be a good ass day, wanna get it started up
No date or anything, but you still know what's up
Get a shower, brush my teeth, check my phone for some tweets
B… whoa… I have tentacles on my face… niiiice!
Track Name: Misconception
Intro:
See, this song isn't about a single person…
It's not even about a group of people…
It's about how I approach the world.
How I envision myself.
And then how the world approaches me.
So take it for what it is.
Here we go.

Verse:
Traveling down the darkest path I've ever known
A stone's throw from the land of dead
Listening to your words and the beat of my soul
I'm welcomed to the breaking heart of a classic 808 track head (Kanye)
Cracked chest open, fear binding me to the streets
My feet are heavy and the knives keep on poking me
There's a throb to the throb to the throb
And someone wants to cut my heart from its loft
Fuck
Who am I to put up a fight, conspire to inspire on those lonely nights
When you didn't feel like you could make it and I sat and told you why you were worth it (you are)
Because you were and still are, it's just that you found it with missing parts
Like a robot locating its hard drive and the reason why it wants to be alive

Chorus:
In the storm of misconceptions
We're losing all of our convictions
Lying and fucking and fighting
For a piece of what we think we're owed
Lamed out in the worst possible way
Stood you up on your fucking birthday
Wouldn't address our underlying issues
And now we're breaking apart at the seams

Bridge:
Well, if part one was yo u, then I guess part two is me (shit)
Fuck, here we go

Verse:
They tell me that I'm being walked on, the most altruistic of them all
Used, abused, destroyed by the acts of trust that I lobby all the time
But I was told that if you give your heart, then you'll find the world holds no walls
You can go and be anything you want to be, achieve all your dreams, all in your prime
Stand up for yourself, she said, and don't let them take you from me
But it's easier said than done when even those who are close always seem so far

Outro:
So I guess this is the part where I'm supposed to tell you that I learned something
That I'm jaded now
That I'm going to walk away from all of this
I can't
I love you guys too much.
So I'll let this happen again and again… for you.
That's what love is.
Track Name: The King
I'm the Donkey, the King of Kong
Ain't no documentary, I don't even know what y'all on
Penthouse, fine blonde, double stacked, mad yellow
An italian cat dodging flying fucking flaming barrels
Couple laps 'round the track wouldn't hurt you none
In that fat suit, you might even bust a lung
Now let's get something straight in the here and now
Cause some of y'all got it twisted why this came about
I was chillin', search the internet, this cat called me out
Had no beef but he got some shit he wanna settle out
Guess his girl left him
A little mushroom problem
He can't fulfill her needs
She need a different steed
Pecker wood tiny as hell so she bailed and climbed my tower all the way to the top penny suite
Here he follows, pining hard, money like Monopoly
That means it's fake for all you with a score you tryina keep
In response, we bailed, skirted to the race kart track
Them games lie, she rode with me, cause we battled back
He's in hot pursuit but need to speed to get that ass

Cause when I'm done, she'll stay with me, a little double dash

C'mon lil' plumber
What kinda game do you think you got?
Step it up, step it up, step it
Don't give a fuck: tennis, golf, racing kart, I'll leave you in a knot
Step it up, step it up, step it

Now let's be real, I got whole countries named after me
Ball so hard, fam is steady, Gramps, Diddy, Dixie treat
Who you got? A little bro named Luigi?
You so ashamed you barely talk about him and Daisy
Get over it bro, your chick is long gone in another castle
I ain't no lizard, turtle, toad idiot you want to battle
Barrel chest, rhino pets, knocking pirates out left and right
You can't beat a hedgehog with his sneaks a little bit too tight

Ok, ok, I tell you what… you go ahead and stick to the family business, because you aren't even on my level. Me? I'm gonna go ahead and go off with this chick…

Because I'm the Donkey, the King of Kong
Ain't no documentary, I don't even know what y'all on
Penthouse, fine blonde, double stacked, mad yellow
An italian cat dodging flying fucking flaming barrels
Hahah. Oh that's you, dawg, if you didn't catch it.

Oh… oh, you still want a piece? Yeah, I don't think so, son.

Cause I'm the Donkey, the King of Kong
Ain't no documentary, I don't even know what y'all on
Penthouse, fine blonde, double stacked, mad yellow
An italian cat dodging flying fucking flaming barrels
Get out of here.
Track Name: Mission Statement
This is the realest song I've ever written
Once you hear this, you won't see me as Alpha Riff anymore
This is soul searing… one of those songs that destroys you
If you're ready, follow me down the rabbit hole

I met this girl long ago, thought she was perfect in every way
Short, thick, geek, pretty, hung with her every single day
Thought she would be my better half
But other things came to pass
We fell in love over an episode of Star Trek
Deep Space had a good looking captain now that I think back
Thing is, I was lying to myself and nothing can save you when you're busy dying to yourself
I told her things I regret, because I thought I could correct
The very way that she felt and how her fucked up world had dealt
A destructive blow to her psyche and soul
From birth and madness to worth and happiness
I could construct a slice of bliss
And this fantasy that I proceed to breed is what would eventually
Destroy her and convince her of the evils of the ways of men
Fall into the lions den and you won't know the difference between me and them

That's the truth… I fucked up… but there's more. Here we go...

Laying at the bottom of the sea, staring up at the ocean currency
All my clouded eyes can see are the people swimming happily
And while I'll die alone, forgotten and passed over like weathered bones
I already know that they live forever on that silver polished throne, thank god
Cause Coheed said in first Afterman
That my bed is made and my mistakes will bring me to my end
Divided up by swirling lights I can see where I began
And where my ending leads me to as I become dust and sand
But, I have a warning for anyone who thinks they can trust this beating heart
I've caused the most pain to those who loved and never parted
I've given the most love to those who left me broken hearted
I'm guilty of not finishing all that I've started
405 fahrenheit to all of you that once bestowed
Cause like MLK Jr said, this is all my conscious knows
To give my all and fade away as if I never existed
And maybe I didn't, I was just a whisper that uplifted

I guess that's why I couldn't take her with me
How would it look to ask her to give up everything she ever wanted
But I ended up doing that anyway…
