Track Name: Who's That?
who's that guy looking at me in the mirror saying "damn, homie you so fly"? / who's that dude everybody wanna be or be next to?

first things first burst in before I spit the verse / off the top rock the spot like the shit's rehearsed / reverse cobra-clutch with more heat than a soldier touch / bitter as fuck 'cause my records ain't sold enough / old enough to know better than to get upset / still rappin' I guess I'm not fed up yet / lyrical vet with skills that you'll never forget / green beret when I'm rockin' the set

I bet you thought I was through with this rappin' shit
get hands clappin' shit / can't quit I guess I'm just too passionate / gotta question on your mind but you ain't askin' it

who's that?

clean like a machine maybe sneak in your dreams / got your name on a Bullit like Steve McQueen / a fiend for silicon but it's been a long time / overdrawn on my account so I'm fresh out of dimes / no prob do my job and I'll collect a few / probably tango with two by disrespecting you / I ain't proud of the fact that it be like that but it's like cheese and mac the way I eat up tracks / might sneak in the back and try to stay unseen / got about thousand allies but just one team / Lit Fuse and I choose who I fuck with carefully / so I'm always there for my homies who are there for me / got my back like a spinal cord / leave it all on the court like the final four / rhymin' whore with a habit that I just can't quit / middle finger from the same fist I smacked 'em with

I bet you thought I was through with this rappin' shit
get hands clappin' shit / can't quit I guess I'm just too passionate / gotta question on your mind but you ain't askin' it

who's that?
Track Name: Call On Me
when your heart aches and life's too much to take just call on me

who's got your back when the sky turns black and not a single person out there knows how to act? / me, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's right, right

who can you call when the sky starts to fall and life's got you backed up against the wall? / me, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's right, right

I know nothing in the world makes sense these days and the problems that you're facing are immense in ways you never could predict with a crystal ball and at best it's a battle to feel nothing at all / waiting for something to fall and ease the pain / nobody feels the same, anger mixed with shame / no one to blame but that makes it worse / if someone was at fault at least that's someone to curse / someone to hurt as bad as you're hurt now but even thinking in those terms leaves you burnt out / no doubt / it's about as bad as bad can get / whitey's walking on the moon but ain't beat cancer yet / ain't got an answers yet for what you're going through / come to find out whitey's mom got cancer too / and it ain't like it helps to know he's going through that / 'cause the next man's pain don't bring your mom back

who's got your back when the sky turns black and not a single person out there knows how to act? / me, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's right, right

who can you call when the sky starts to fall and life's got you backed up against the wall? / me, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's who, that's right, right

I hope you know how many folks got you on their mind in these difficult times / this ain't your typical rhyme these are words from the heart / words meant to spark hope when days get dark / and I wish I knew just the right things to say to make the heartbreak fade away / but in the meantime I'm right by your side / (call on me) call on me homie don't be shy / and don't think I ever ain't got time / that'll be the same day I ain't got rhymes / and that there's a long way away / so if you need to get at me and if you want get at me today / even if you ain't got nothing to say / and you feel like you're fading away / hey I've been there and you helped me pull through / now I'm here for you

when your heart aches and life's too much to take just call on me
Track Name: Where Do We Go From Here? (featuring Bosko)
BOSKO:
where do we go from here when the future's so unclear and yesterday has been washed away like rivers of our tears? / where do we go from here when the future's so unclear and yesterday has been washed away like rivers of our tears?

PETE:
can't play with fire without getting burned eventually / people write it off and shake their heads and say it's meant to be / can't censor me but they can kill me easy / must be some reason that they don't they must need me / believe me, I don't know what's on their minds / long as I'm still alive it suits me fine / only crime that I'm guilty of is trying to be free / and trying to find some folks down to ride with me

BOSKO:
caught up in a crazy situation troubles on my mind / trying to be strong trying to have some patience almost out of time / but we can't give up come too far to let it go / all my people rise up together we stand together we grow

where do we go from here when the future's so unclear and yesterday has been washed away like rivers of our tears? / where do we go from here when the future's so unclear and yesterday has been washed away like rivers of our tears?

where do we go from here?

PETE:
they say the sky is darkest just before the dawn / well I don't know if that's true but the dawn has come and gone / stay strong and do your best to keep keepin' on / when times are hard like the floor that I've been sleepin' on / before long help will be here so we're told but I don't know if it'll come before this place explodes / I hold onto my faith and try to take deep breaths / each step keeps pace with the next god bless / if the help don't come we'll survive on our own / we ain't going no place this our only home / all alone we might fall and drop the ball / but together facing problems we can stop 'em all / final call / ring the alarm bring your best / I bet this whole mess is nothing more than a test / in this life or the next we'll face better conditions and look back at these days as a baptism

BOSKO:
caught up in a crazy situation troubles on my mind / trying to be strong trying to have some patience almost out of time / but we can't give up come too far to let it go / all my people rise up together we stand together we grow

where do we go from here when the future's so unclear and yesterday has been washed away like rivers of our tears? / where do we go from here when the future's so unclear and yesterday has been washed away like rivers of our tears?

where do we go from here?
Track Name: Last Of The Human Skills (featuring KRS-One)
Hip Hop is the last of the human skills / don't look at breakin', MCin', graffiti-writin', DJin' / that's what we did with the hip hop consciousness / but with that same consciousness you can enter architecture, medicine, law, education / don't leave Hip Hop in entertainment / stretch it out into medicine / it may cure leukemia / stretch it out to architecture / we may develop buildings that can withstand earthquakes / the solution to most of the world's problems rest in the minds of Hip Hoppers all over the world / Hip Hop is last of the human skills / we are living in technological madness / Hip Hop is the last of the human skills
Track Name: If You Want It We Got It (featuring Dres and Blowout)
DRES:
if you want it we got it / if you need it you can get it
I said it / be just a matter of time / now it's embedded
in the atmos / a catalyst / getting dough across the atlas / activists actively active stuffing money in my mattress / with sounds of blackness / we universal in the practice / I paint a perfect picture less the platinum and theatrics / biggest poppa / I drop a top / a whip becomes irrelevant / elegant / plus my pocket's thicker than an elephant / celibate or selling it / I'll make her wanna share / pay attention when I'm telling it / you smell it in the air / the stuff you puff sit back and rock to / the sound that you hear in your ear that got you / knowing the deal / something you feel it's the real / back in the game smacking the lame it's the thrill / yo, I tell it to you the way it was told to me / what is is what was but what was could never be

PETE:
If you want it we got it / gave it all we had to give it / spit it so vivid / love it because we live it / in it for a minute now vowed to stay committed / to us it ain't a gimmick see we live where you visit / exquisite when exhibited raw / that's why we did it for y'all / no chance for success unless you give it your all / learning stages made you slip and then fall / but eventually you fit in like a brick in a wall / hip hop it's a culture not a marketing plan / revolution orchestrated in a park at a jam / speaking clearer than your demographic targeting can / retarded hard to understand like a Harvard exam / we start with the fans that's only part of the plan / lyrics harder than the hearts of martyrs guarding Iran / oh man these carbon copies ought to be banned / we off the charts like Brittany Murphy's cardiogram

BLOWOUT:
if you want we got it / any topic I'm gonna rock it / Blowout get it poppin' like a drummer in the pocket / this is what they came for / this is what they go to see / that Big Daddy Kane raw rhythm and poetry / the main source coming when the soul leaks on dope beats / and they all paid for a trip to visit the streets / for some peeps this is the closest that they'll ever be / and never really knowing why they're feeling the energy / from the floor to the ceiling I'm revealing the remedy / 85 come alive from the 5 that be dealing it to the closed eye young guys with no god / I'm preparing it and sharing it given' it back here it is / a mental quest from me Pete and Dres / pure genuine hip hop for your special request
Track Name: Honest Mistakes
might of had about all I can take / player haters out there calling me fake / give me a break / cry me a lake or make an offer on my spot / bad as you can make it ain't as bad as it got / things I've seen come back in my dreams seems like tragedy took half of my team / little schemes that felt big when we were young and dumb and didn't understand the words we sung / far from young but can't say I'm much wiser / these days I'd rather be Pete than be Pete Miser / tried to lay low but the songs kept coming tried to move slow but my mouth kept running / a hundred miles another style spit up / and some dummy snorted all the dust that I kicked up / lifted my eyes, on nine double eye / when the sky got lit up like the 4th of July / don't know why that crosses my mind / maybe moments like that are how we mark time / hard to find much genius in the messes we make / so we're remembered by our biggest mistakes

past perfect, tense, no mistakes allowed / committed to an image so I fake it now / even if I tried I couldn't take it down / demolish, dismantle it, oh, it's so scandalous / a vandal with a heart barely made my mark / back when addicts had a strangle-hold on Paranoia Park / big missions after dark for a third-string assassin / lackin' in skills but loaded with blind passion / askin' for an ass kickin' found it twice / two hard lessons learned about the value of life / darkest days with no way to ever make it right / darkest possible outcome for futures so bright / picked fights with my prospects and usually lost / won a couple little battles at ridiculous cost / got tossed around, knocked down and beaten into shape / made whole by soul-crushing honest mistakes
Track Name: If I Had My Way (featuring Imani Coppola)
IMANI:
If I Had My Way

PETE:
if I had my way I'd stay in a mansion in Soho / where I wouldn't be hassled by these asshole po-pos / looking at me mean when I dress too clean / pushing up on the scene mean-mugging my team / I'd have a super-model girl and an HDTV / and I'd stop hanging out with grimy kids writing graffiti / you would see me in the finest of cars / flyest of bars / only hanging out with the shiniest stars / I'd be quick to turn my back on my homies that are Puerto Rican and black / and act like I don't know them / show them no love when I went into clubs with the red velvet rope thinking, "oh my god my life's so dope!

and it would be all about me / if I had my way...

if I had my way I'd pray for all the poor children just as long as they don't up and try to move into my building / I've got feelings for them cute little brats / living in shacks / I'd buy 'em fitted caps and teach them to rap / matter of fact / as a matter of pride / I'd save the whole world 'cause girls dig sensitive guys / imagine how many smiles I'd make and how much trim I'd run through / just for curing avian flu? / I'd kick it with no lower than world leaders / me and Kim Jung Il splitting forties in wife beaters / with a crew tattoo and our hats to the back and mad beef with every single country on the map

and it would be all about me / if I had my way...

IMANI:
if I had my way / I'd have an enema every single day / 'cause I don't wanna be full of bull / like everybody talking with their mouth full / and if I had my way I'd show you dolphins flying through the sky / a little sugar for your horny eyes / a feast for the soul / but chew it with your eyes closed

PETE:
if I had my way I'd play myself in a movie loosely based on my real life / except I'd skip the fact that I'm half-white / and I grew up in the 'burb's / and the only fiends I ever served were when I worked at Starbuck's wearing an apron like a nerd / I'd often be observed wearing diamonds and furs / claiming to be a thug but looking absurd / way too much lotion / eyebrows plucked / pistol in my waistline looking corny as fuck! / a complete self-mockery with teenagers jockeying me / stalking me through the mall / hawking watching it all / wanting to ball like a big-boss player like "what?" / if I had my way my life would probably suck

'cause it would be all about me / if I had my way...

IMANI:
if I had my way / I'd have an enema every single day / 'cause I don't wanna be full of bull / like everybody talking with their mouth full / and if I had my way I'd show you dolphins flying through the sky / a little sugar for your horny eyes / a feast for the soul / but chew it with your eyes closed
Track Name: Some MCs
some mcs are gangsters and some mcs are thugs / and some mcs be talking 'bout they sell all types of drugs / some mcs are rich but most mcs are not / and some mcs innovate while others just bite what is hot / some mcs are from the 'burbs and some are from the 'hood / but all mcs say "that's what's up" and "true" and "yo, what's good?" / some mcs are brilliant in the things they have to say / and some mcs can't seem to tell their lyrics are cliché

but that mc ain't me / that mc ain't me / that mc ain't me / no, that mc ain't me

some mcs got guns and try to claim that they are soldiers / most mcs don't carry guns but they get no exposure / some mcs are intelligent and read all types of books / and some mcs have zero skills but sell 'cause of their looks / some mcs are wannabes an don't know why they rhyme / some mcs are just like fish attracted to shit that shines / some mcs know history and big up pioneers / and some think they invented this and need to get things clear /

but that mc ain't me / that mc ain't me / that mc ain't me / no, that mc ain't me

where my real hip hop heads at today? / were they blown off course like castaways? / did they wanna make money some faster way? / did they lose heart once Biggie passed away? / oh well to tell the truth I might too if hip hop wasn't something that I had to do / sometimes it messes with you like it's mad at you / like some fine-ass girl with an attitude / It's sad but true used to be fad to you like "oh that's cute" while you're passing through / then you wonder why them b-boys snapped at you / tucked your chain so they wouldn't get to jackin' you / but yo, years later people seen it grow / poor kids from the hood making all that dough / some put down their guns and started to flow / others let off shots at every hip hop show / and who knows how many nights I could have cost my life? / but I'd have given it for the mic / swore to fight kept it tight hardcore for life / and I'm a flow 'til there ain't nothing more to write / and then, grab a pen sit back write a rap again / call my friends rock a show and pack 'em in / stack 'em in if we have to mash 'em in / and try to find another mc in the class I'm in
Track Name: Pretty Drunk
she's…
pretty drunk, pretty drunk, pretty drunk / and she's pretty when she's drunk

I don't usually hit the sauce much / thus I'm allowed to keep my soft touch / subtle in rebuttal and quick to kill if I
need to / when most folks go see-through / but she's too smooth to get played out / must have escape routes all laid out / so she stays cool while others slip and slide away / trying to find away to stay

pretty drunk, pretty drunk, pretty drunk / and she's pretty when she's drunk

hard to know just where her head goes / when she flips to Rudolph Red Nose / some get lead toes and can't walk right / she gets bouncy and talks all night / we watch stars that shoot like cupid / and slip out when our friends get stupid / she tells jokes and sings off key / and makes me think I ought to be

pretty drunk

She drinks tea the morning after / and we recall long nights of laughter / she plays games but not the head-kind / big word bad ass after bed time / and as I said I'm usually sober / so I'm not sure what she's getting over / she says things that feed my crush / and makes me hope that she's not just

pretty drunk, pretty drunk, pretty drunk / and she's pretty when she's drunk / or is it me?
Track Name: Empty Sound
there was no sound / nothing but just empty sound / when you turn the turntable on / nothing but just dead sound on the air / on one or two occasions / in the very early hours of the morning / there was nothing going out over the air / turntables on either side of you / nothing but just empty sound on the air / there was no sound
Track Name: Change In The Weather
I feel a change in the weather

summer's back / ladies' toes exposed like plumber crack and the street's heating up / beating up the night spots and sidewalk cafés / streets filling up with more butt than ash trays / last days of spring behind us / winter long gone nothing left to remind us / nights get shorter like the skirts on girls / after hot rollers touched down and worked them curls / big city / pretty little Brooklyn birds / young flirts experts at being observed / t-shirts get work rather be in a fur / but not today 'cause it's way too hot

I feel a change in the weather

It ain't never been hot like this / for real yo / I wonder if Iraq's like this / I feel those fellas in the desert underneath the sun suited up in fatigues pack weighing a ton / while back home it's all fun / their daughters and sons shooting water guns 'til it's dark and the evening comes / and it's hot 'til the stars and the moon come out / with the news all about dry spells and drought / and it's been weeks since I've seen one cloud / wipe my brow / thinking 'bout how I'd like to see one now / hottest weather that I ever could remember / and it's strange 'cause it's only December

I feel a change in the weather

I can't believe I'm the only one who sees what's up / when the winter hits a hundred three degrees and up / and the level of the sea starts creeping up / heating up like the planet ain't diseased enough / is it a campaign to leave the whole earth aflame? / or just a damn shame knowing we're the first to blame? / in a burst of pain maybe we can work a change / but y'all were laying in the sun until the nurses came / while hurricane season's breathing down our neck once more / and according to Al Gore more are just off shore / meanwhile we're engaged in a war to secure cheap oil to feed the problem when we should be finding a cure / signing accords before we're in too deep / and it's too late to make it cease / to say the least / no one here can take the heat / but even cats like me can be afraid to speak / 'cause my god what mall rat is gonna bump this in their iPod? / my job ain't to make you think it's to get you on the floor after too many drinks / even though we're standing at the brink

I feel a change in the weather
Track Name: Wasted
"oh no not him for real? / ain't that cat over the hill? / can't believe he's at it still / kinda figured he had his fill / guess he got more to say / couple rhymes he stored a way" / that's cool I know y'all hoped that I was here for a shorter stay / but I'm back back / and like before I don't know really just how to act act / so I try to make some sense of my life on these tracks tracks / looks like we're standing on the bring of a collapse lapse / matter of fact we're under attack

he calls that hip hop, son? / no mention of money and guns? / kinda bullshit 'hood he from? / just look at what he's become / I could tell when I first seen him / his monkey ass was dreamin'" / shit, y'all might be right but
I can't spit rhymes that have no meaning / but I'm back back / and like before I don't know really just how to act act / so I try to make some sense of my life on these tracks tracks / looks like we're standing on the bring of a collapse lapse / matter of fact we're under attack

I had my dreams but not like Martin Luther King / it seems they fade as days decay and slip away like leaves in streams / lean and mean until my schemes resulted in a lack of hunger / ain't too frightening when it's clear there ain't no lightening to your thunder / I wonder where I went astray it's hard to say / did I botch a major play or maybe just give up one day? / was I naive? did I believe the hype despite what Flav and Chuck said? / peeked behind the curtain wound up upset and disgusted? / turns out the gods are dusted and the miracle's a sham / left me squirming there in church 'cause I could see it's all a scam / should've been easier to make it once I knew that I could fake it / but I saw the virgin naked after that I couldn't shake it / hate to face it / I lost my faith and still haven't replaced it / for once I see the light for all my might I can't embrace it / bit more than I can chew how can it be that I can't taste it? / I'll decline the holy wine and watch the rest of y'all get wasted
Track Name: Rapper Interruptus (featuring Maya Azucena, M-TRI and Blowout

Track Name: Mad Intellect
basal ganglia / bundles of neurons that extend beneath cerebral cortex / chord / any combination of simultaneous tones / two tones alone are normally referred to as an interval although many musicologists regard intervals as a kind of chord / chromaticism / harmony that makes use of the five tones in an octave that are not part of the prevailing scale / tones that tend toward strong dissonance / chromatic scale / a scale consisting of all twelve tones in an octave / chromatic scales are not inherently tonal and have no key

one two / I'm a come through with mad intellect
Track Name: Along For The Ride
She destroys me / stands back and laughs at me / has to be romantic tragedy for her to come after me / she knows I don't know my way and I'd say I was already lost when I got off the highway / she takes her own sweet time and then she takes mine / makes the world wait even when paying late fines / she makes the pain go away at least today / I'd stay but finally I know a little better

and if it's true what I'm told I'll go out of my way to make the day last longer / and if it's true what I'm told I'll hold
onto my heart from the start and go along for the ride

go along for the ride...

she's got me / she knows it / shows it in the way that she acts and you can see it in the way I react / she cracks up / laughs up a storm / wrapped up in warm light just like the day she was born / she knows a whole lot more than she lets on / steps on hearts with high heels and fish nets on / she falls back into a good book and drifts off to sleep while I watch 'cause I'm in too deep

and if it's true what I'm told I'll go out of my way to make the day last longer / and if it's true what I'm told I'll hold
onto my heart from the start and go along for the ride

go along for the ride...

...'til the wheels fall off this jalopy / can't stop me / got me caught up since Amadeus tried to rock me / awfully nice of her to ask to blast but better if she never got me gassed from the start / last one to part stayed past her welcome / fell from grace / you can tell from the faith she left behind / right there next to mine about face with hardly a trace left to find / next to shine best to find SPF30 / testified best to fry when the pan's dirty / guess that I'm left to find someone else to serve me and I mean that in both senses so I'm defenseless / guest list overload no throne to overthrow / damn near live here but still don't know the road / blow the code / mixing metaphors and such / but that's what I met her for / she comes through in the clutch / and who wanna fuss with these details when these females are harder to read than sentiments in e-mails? / read braille if you wanna feel what she has to say / no jacks or jump ropes she don't play / "you don't say?" / I don't no, not often / carry most of my thoughts on this to the coffin / stopped in my tracks turn back for a beating again / and then pretend that it's all good

and if it's true what I'm told I'll go out of my way to make the day last longer / and if it's true what I'm told I'll hold
onto my heart from the start and go along for the ride

go along for the ride...
Track Name: 4PM (Pete Miser Mix)
hot like Holly Hobby ovens but not stuck in the past / I blast forth get cash for my cd when it's stuck in your dash / up in that ass with a size nine Saucony / blood on my hands from botched back room lobotomies / stop the beat / I've got to pee / pit stop / road trip to paradise through suffering and hip hop / but I've looked back and I've seen roads paved with bad intentions / all 'cause of one rhyme I wrote to pass detention / pay attention if you've got it like that but these days / kids focus switch faster than lanes on freeways / hang the DJ and kill the MC / and keep your evil eye on anyone who doesn't look like me / the cook might be spittin' on your burger / but the way he got it tasting got your screaming bloody murder / tip the server but the change don't trickle down / don't even matter can't buy shit with a nickel now / call me jaded but I hate the way the shoe fits / don't give a fuck about no one I don't get loose with / Lit Fuse partner keep a microphone inside my locker / stop the presses it's going down like this...

real life hero zero, down and countin' / here to bring more change than the bottom of a fountain / it's the cat that got you bouncing to some consciousness / while that shit on radio made you want to quit / I'm poppin' monster shit / and leaving y'all without no options like some foster kids / coppin' this when I be rockin' with / the homie, Recone and we're prone to get your girl breaking up with you like service on them free phones / doing eighty in a speed zone / mashin' / half White / half Chinese now stop askin' / pursuing hip hop with a passion, player / representing on the mic and on the fader
