Track Name: staystill
Track 1 from the new heiruspecs collection 'theskyisfalling'

lyrics:
I'm just me
And I can't be different
Though I may just change my mood --
Couldnt always eat
It was ramen noodles
Which is why im a show and prove --
It was meant to be
That I'd do this writing
Started earlier up in school --
From that studio apartment
Knew I'd always make it thought. --
I look back....
You see that?
That young cat was wound tighter than a cable on a bridge
Stolen cable at the crib---
Neighbors yelling at 7am
No AC let them flys get in ---
Built errthing off of this music
So I ain't gone pack it in ---
In 01, it was just me my girl and nothing but ideas
Put ideas to work and now I'm eating
Getting fat
Built up a team and we did our thing
Do our thing
The crew I bring is instrumental
Bringing instrumentals like its nothing ----
I'm pumping big beats
Strong words
Real life - I'm honest fam
And we for real gone see who sticks around
And who gone ram ----
Used to look up there now here I stand ---
Right there on stage in a thousand jams ---
This ain't a race so why you running like a wanted man?

Flying high.
We make our way
Can't stay still
Climbing free
No telling me
Who stays real
Flying high.
We make our way
Can't stay still
Climbing free
No telling me
Who stays real


Late night sessions taught me everything I know now
Way bright lessons about the way it is.
Had great impressions and that's how I roll now
Keep my head above he water trying to shake the squids


Was student watching
Every winter steaming
Was in the street just walking
Was looking a meaning
Was in the basement plotting
Was in the attic scheming
Free styling fuming
Was awake but dreaming
Tougher than leather had been my tape
Runs house was my escape
Was young and dumb and I made mistakes
But I won't take em back
What I was then
Made me this now
Got me open
Momma just proud
You're hearing this then it's too late
You may not make if back.
Some stories will stay my own
May change names and dates
Some stories are best untold
you leave them there to lie
Some stories you tell the world
The drama that life takes
Known to have a loud mouth
Kind of guy

Flying high.
We make our way
Can't stay still
Climbing free
No telling me
Who stays real
Flying high.
We make our way
Can't stay still
Climbing free
No telling me
Who stays real
Track Name: years
Track 2 from the Heiruspecs collection 'theskyisfalling'

I don't need the hype man, just give me life
I don't want a bite. I want the whole damned slice
Got me some advice. Keep your circle tight
Cause the whispers in your ear tell you Wrong or right ----
Everyone I ever hated I had love for too
What you do defines you
So they say to stay true
Stay you and let them do what them do.
Never worry your head with how they feel in them mental. ----
My pencil to the nub and my eraser gone
Replaced pain with song
So many times I go long?
How many times we throw strong after the questions came.
This is why people say that life's a game. ----
If we tame every lion then the jungle is ours.
But the victory is sour because they're just cats
If we conquer every frontier and know every secret
Then horizons stop calling
Just a stupid map. ----

It's a game, it's a race.
Every face every place.
Every one I know
Every year I've grown
We can tally all the years
With the blood sweat and tears
Every thing I know
What I've got to show.

And that there's a shame. My son tought me wonder
Tought me how dependent we all are on each other
Showed me that the pressure we assume could break bars
Just exposes the rust so we can heal our scars ----
Bars.
Motivated by the weekend
And dedicated to the moment
Please show me my opponent.
Please tell me there's a limit
Im'a set new goals
I'm a show that my stripes are made of gold. ----
So.
I was a kid on my bike racing down the sidewalk
Now I'm grown and I'm supposed to keep that sidewalk clear
Moved my mom out my childhood home, cause that's life
Walk away, but always keep the memories you hold dear ----

It's a game, it's a race.
Every face every place.
Every one I know
Every year I've grown
We can tally all the years
With the blood sweat and tears
Every thing I know
What I've got to show.

Lay it bare like a brick.
Pour that mortar on thick

That's life
Them's the breaks
That might be the meaning
For sure those or things that define all your leaning
For the beating of the drums and the fog of war
These are things that really tell us what we're here for. ----
If I huff and puff and blow the house down
Then the silly pigs didn't do a good job
Wood and straw from all the people that just haven't figured out
Get it out
It's not about covering every flaw. ----

It's a game, it's a race.
Every face every place.
Every one I know
Every year I've grown
We can tally all the years
With the blood sweat and tears
Every thing I know
What I've got to show.
Track Name: theskyisfalling
Every moment I'm awake I'm thinking show and prove.
It's just sometimes I'm lazy, it don't show in my mood.
If you're always thinking money then your thinking is small
It don't take a Buddhist monk to see that money ain't all. ----
Stayed around the way for years. That's the back of my hand
I could show you short cuts
And where we started the band
I could show you many faces
Make a rainbow blush
My home got many colors on that brush ----
You know that old saying 'bout assumptions right?
You know it only takes a little gumption right?
The function of the music, like as far as I'm concerned.
Has been to peel away the layers on the onion right. ----
See Michaela did the times on our first tape?
She's on the street demonstrating cause the times ain't great.
See Muad'dib had a thing that he hit with heartstrings
Feel the boom, jump the broom it was a beautiful spring. ----

They say the sky is falling so you built a wall
You'll have a little shelter when it hits us all
But I don't think that sky is falling
I don't think that sky is falling
The streets are on fire so you locked the door
What you think that rain is for
And I don't think the sky is falling
But if it is then let it pour


They say the sky is falling
They say the building crumbling
They say the kids don't care
You hear it in the mumbling
They say the sky is falling
But you can still fly a jet.
But I don't think the sky is falling
Cause if it was we'd all be wet.

(Muad'dib Verse)
i got a head full of pins and needles i don't feel like running through
quit looking at me like that, neither do none of you
but what do you do? sometimes you're just summoned to,
machete etiquette, better get up and hone you're bloody tool,
oh, you're just a cunning fool, bubbling subterfuge,
another nouveau inspector closeau without a clue,
hurry up and graduate your ass from dummy school,
the clocks ticking chicken, hit the bricks, and get to kicking
born in the land of ice and shadows, where you forge your own swords, and fight your own battles, a forlorn decor, where life just won't travel, so i pull silver outta storm clouds, await til they unravel like, rattle rattle thunder clattered, never chattered, make it matter, built the batter, bake it better, take the cake and save it as collateral, so levitous sabbatical's the attitude, that's the mood for every puddle that i splash into

Evermore Shakespeare
Clever score from DeVon
Painting over my bombs
Another mole in my lawn
Slow little pawn
See we was underground and independent
Like our homeboys song
Never felt so strong. -----
It's an industry of Giants we the little guys
No one ever said we wasn't just a little fly
Not a cloud in the sky can't see the top of the stratosphere
That's why we love the clouds
For making some shit clear. ----
I got a couple whips
They both leak oil
I got a couple chips
Seeds in the soil
Peace in our time that's the mantra I heard
Spread a little love that ain't so absurd ----

They say the sky is falling so you built a wall
You'll have a little shelter when it hits us all
But I don't think that sky is falling
I don't think that sky is falling
The streets are on fire so you locked the door
What you think that rain is for
And I don't think the sky is falling
But if it is then let it pour

Track 4 from the Heiruspecs collection 'theskyisfalling'

We always seem to go the path we know
And no one notices
The other path below is lined with gold
That's where my focus is (x2)

Record over still spinning listen to the pops.
Every body say they winning gunning for the tops
While I'm not
Steady chilling
Watch me get the props
Dues paid
News made
Knowing I don't got a lot. ----
But I'm good with it
Drive around the hood with it
Stood with my kin
Colors of skin like Joseph's jacket
Exposed to racket
Know the bracket that I'm in
Blend the rich and poor, the middle.
I'm just trying to hack it. ----
Earth spinning, 20 years of my rhymes
Bomb hard when you know it's your time
That's how to shine
All about mine, you all about yours
I'm curious George
My flame to the forge.
On 24/7 like a lottery sign. ----
I'm on my mind expanding grind
Learning all of the time
Ignoring all of the bullshit, really all of us fine
Restoring all the hood shit. Really not on my mind
know you're hood rich when you can leave any time /---
I'm looking at my timeline thinking this was supposed to be about fun
Now it's all about guns and money
I'm looking at the news thinking that the blues go against the colors like they gangs and it ain't funny.
The first 48
My first 16 a harbinger for sure
For the dollars and fame we endure
The allure of the life
The mic device I hold stole control right
Still, no sign of that brand new rolls.
My brother doesn't have a license or a car
My wife doesn't ride a bike man that just too far
My son my world spinning and I'm looking at the stars
Maybe cause I've been drinking like I passed the Barr
I need a jar of that good shit
A can of that heat
A man on his feet
Stand and defeat
Hand in the street
Foot in the office
All this good
I'm small, just stood
That's all you can do
You be a man, not defined by the hood.
My heroes were cartoons and business owners
The sense of good and evil it controls us.
Role models were my parents for better or worse
Shit is deeper than what I put in a verse.

We always seem to go the path we know
And no one notices
The other path below is lined with gold
That's where my focus is (x2)

When the going - Is rough
You better - be tough
Come on - Get up
It's never - Enough
And it's all for what?
Just ball, just ball, ball, ball
Get all - the stuff
It's never - enough.

#1

Ill winds whistling in amidst thistles and thorns
Unicorn
Singular horn
Born from the kiss of a storm
Every breath you attest to magic but this is the norm
just as much as watching a clutch or a piston perform
(Yup)
You’ll never see another one utter syllables like me
Might be the one that you’ll never understand why you like me
Alright
I get it
You didn’t really invite me
But I’m not a vampire, sucker
Strike ‘em in their psyche

Felix #1
That’s word to Mikey - been down the stairs under living rooms
The living boom within me like a bone disease
Prone to squeeze the living energy from every high hat and kick
See my fly hat - believe the way that I spit
I like the sound of yesterday but love the look of tomorrow
Dig the vibe of always playing like I’m going for broke
Burn the midnight oil so I can have the day to play
Know the way to smooth the road may be replacing the spoke

#2
So pause
Hold your applause
Go and pick up your jaws
Wicked and raw cinematography like chickens in farms
Sickening Oscar documentaries
when ripping these bars
Which is the cost of crossing rebels with a legitimate cause
(now)
Whatever little is flossed belittles the riddles we lost
Significance of the ripples
Every pebble ever tossed’ll be relevant when every skeleton’s enveloped in frost
No rose petals, no moss
Just cold metal and claws





(Chorus) (x2)
Never had an enemy
All we
Do is bring energy
Do the thing
Energy
Feel me?
Chemistry
The pleasure is all me
Lift me up
Energy
Steady rocking make you feel my energy


Felix #2
Stay woke the hashtag
I see your character limits
I see your character flaws
Stare at repairs with the gauze
Aware of the laws
I’m taking moments like a thief in the night
A thief with the gaul
While you’re a leaf in the fall
It’s really hard not to rhyme this with Steven Segal
Love the beat
It’s so raw
Just repeat and go off
Lather rinse and go to war again
The speech from the wall
I’d rather know I found the ledge
Than lose my feet in the fog

#3
(Face it)
With movements sacred
We suture statements to use in cadence
Due to patience my new acquaintances knew to take in /everything that
they viewed
and ruminate for illumination
You’re too late
This unit’s taken and we’re fumigating
So keep it moving dude
You ain’t escaping through the basement
Kick the kegs out from under your fumbling face plant
Now what do you say Champ?
MedEvac ASAP
Clever chap
Hook ‘em up
To Hell and back
Go tell ‘em that

Felix #3
You taste the flavor baked in? Created this on our own
On our o-o-own / O-o-o-own
Elevated by our home, sell the bait and go on
celebrated by your favorites, I’m brazen with poem
Amazing grace in my bones
Paving ways with the stones
You threw my way when I was down
‘cause now I’m up and you’re wrong
Never held a grudge, they all judge, I’ll do it alone
And threw away, day by day, what you thought was the throne
Every day I’m struggling
Shuffle the mud back
I may hustle ’til I crack, always got your own back
I know the way around and put my name where I can
So when I look into the mirror, I only ever see a man

#4
(Damn)
Swagger like Pythagoras after his theorem
Banner before the explosion or Cap after the serum
I’m Hellen Keller when they yapping I don’t hear ‘em
Blind to the fact the dumb are trying to get me to fear ‘em
(Ok)
You can try it but I decided that I would die
before I let anyone bury me behind my eyelids
This is my shit
Why?
You don’t like it?
All attempts to deny this haven’t seen the sky since


Felix #4
I - Got - my own thing going
You - need - to do by yourself
We - all - know our own truths so…
HEY!
That power. Man that’s true wealth.


(Chorus) (x2)
Never had an enemy
All we
Do is bring energy
Do the thing
Energy
Feel me?
Chemistry
The pleasure is all me
Lift me up
Energy
Steady rocking make you feel my energy
