Track Name: HAX feat. Mega Ran & MC Lars
Everybody, welcome to the new stuff!
Beef Thompson, telling you I've grown up
How I do it? Well I tell ya
I just hit the little ~ in the middle for a minute than I hit another level

Beef be stylish, championship finalist
Approximately give as many shits as a nihilist
Tell a little tale how you’re gonna take control
But I’m the one who broke the mold, you can hold all the fat jokes
Truth be told I’m not much of a winner
But I’ve gotta a mega buddy had a song up on SportCenter
Don’t forget. Chillin like Neil Everett
I’m a beauty at a nine and getting hotter by the minute
Talent takes time so I skipped to the front
Green they get with jealousy, I’m level up
I roll up to your home and I make it explode
Then walk away without a look because I’m living in god mode
The rap cat who looks good in fat
Who always sounds so awesome on a Mustin track
You kill it like a wedding and you’re dressed in black
You can be the Steve Jobs, I’ll be the Wozniak, Jack!

Oh my word, man, it must be hacks
How else could these guys be on like that?
Cheat code rappers, it’s a disaster
Tracking like a torrent, I’m a real life hacker
Oh my word, man, it must be hacks
How else could these guys be on tracks so phat?
Cheat code rappers, it’s a disaster
Tracking like a torrent, I’m a real life hacker
Track Name: Grown Up
No life. No fun.
Don't you know that you're a grown up?
No games. No puns.
Not allowed if you're a grown up
No more watching shows till sun rise
Unacceptable for grown ups
Your dinner cannot just be French fries
Basically life sucks as a grown up

About five years ago, I did what I wanted bro
If I didn't feel like wearing pants then brother I just wouldn't go
Used to rock the microphone, on the road for many shows
Comiccon I spit some flows then walked my ass to Mexico
Predating YOLO just a fellow with a mile wide
Smile guy, living life, closer to the wide side
Lonely and was going blind, bought the ticket take a ride
Imagine my surprise when responsibilities arrived
Enter the kiddo, the size of a thimble
So cute make ya tremble, I was caught in the middle
At the time I was fine, little babies they don't talk much
Drink and eat the same stuff, every other second's lunch
But shows came slower when she got a little bigger
She may not be my daughter but she'll always have a father figure
And now she's 5 years old and I'm never bored
Putting on pants is like something I signed up for

Back in the day, flipping pizzas I could take off
To melt the faces of the haters who this Beefy's soft
Now I gotta jump through more hoops than the Westminster
Clearing things in March for a show in the mid Winter
All filter. This S is F'n nuts
I'm like the Aggro Crag and Nugget's always playing GUTS
About to lose my lunch every single time she jumps
But if I ever had a choice I would never give it up
But it's always nice to have a little space
Maybe catch a couple rays, maybe play a couple games
Sit at my computer for an hour and a half
Roll some rounds of damage for my double sided staff
Oh Blast, aw shucks, Ah Phoney
Fare thee well High Dive, take care Chop Suey
Bye Ray's Golden Lion, See ya later Corazon
I'll get back out on the road once I have taken care of home

Simply put, this life ain't for all of ya'll
Like seeing me in short shorts playing volleyball
I'm not playing, never acting, I just came upon my passion
In a fashion like my father if the planets moving backwards
They grow up so fast
Your only options are to have an attitude or a blast
You make the best of what you've got and when you're done and looking back
All you can hope to say is that you gave it everything you had
So grown up Leila, baby, if you're hearing this
I hope you've got a job ya love with all the benefits
I hope you went to school, and I hope that you still call
I hope I have a bunch of pics or your kids on the wall
And if all that never happens know that daddy-beefy's lampin'
A scenario where I'm not proud of you could never happen
And when you're laying with your baby and you're stressing cause she's throwing up
You'll start to understand the joys of being grown up
Track Name: Dream of Sleep
Ya know I dream of sleep
Curl up like a baby I don't make a peep
Feel serenity, calm, and the mellow
Hit cloud nine when my head hits the pillow
Ya know I dream of sleep
But work comes first, rent don't come cheap
So me and a dream are an enemy
My only friend is a 5 hour energy

I guess it helps if I start breaking down my schedule
Day and night, 2 gigs, not very unusual
I heard that wealth trickles down but the flow was slow
I'd love to kiss ya baby but it's 10 and so I gotta go
Grab my smokes, my 5 hour and my Amp
Got the Kindle in my lap, hoping I don't take a nap
4 o' clock on the watch and there's nothing on the box
3 more hours on the clock, wishing I could make it stop
Relief staff dip fast into my Expedition
Speed off to the casa and I have a premonition
Of a fatty in a blanket snoozing, dreaming of the lotto
9AM alarm is blasting and I'm crying I don't wanna
Hero just like Nemo when I stroll into a dream
But when the kid's around it's like the only place to be obscene
Alarm sounds again says I only have a second
10 o clock on the dot, at my desk, I’m gonna wreck it

Days I don't work catch me lounging with the youngin
Do ya wanna play a game or watch an anime or something?
Heck no man, she wants to run around
She wants sing and dance and pick all of the daisies from the ground
And I guess I could sit her by the tube
Is it really all that wrong? I heard a lot of parents do
And I could catch up on each and every single one of my Z's
But my heart turns to Jell-O when she’s asking me please
What kind of monster would I be if I just told the blondie sorry
But your Beefy is too sleep-i-dee to really rock a tea party
So forget it let's play dress up for a second
I've seen what happens to a lady when she's hunting for attention
Waiting for the day she tells me take a seat
Brace yourself because I think I really wanna sleep
Jump into our PJs, drop an elbow on a pillow
But that's never gonna happen, she's hopped up on marshmallows

Oh sleep boo, the things that I would do in you
Dance with Janet Jackson in the 90s out in Malibu
Ride a flying sturgeon to an underwater Barbeque
Then hit up woman-Beefy for a really creepy rendezvous
It's so tantric, less than fantastic
Not emotional or drastic I’m just feeling kinda manic
Non-politically correct they may describe me as a spastic
Should be wearing nothing but white with my walls all made of plastic
Every other week there's like another celebration
And the bags under my eyes look like I'm going on vacation
My baby always rocking, always helping with support
And you know I won't complain babe, that's what I write songs for
So even when it’s dark, I don’t feel low
Cause every second is another second close to home
Constant question am i doing it right?
Normal in the light, the freak comes out at night
Track Name: Girl Meets Doctor feat. Tylr DeShae
Girl Meets Doctor
Boy meets girl, girl meets doctor
Wanted an adventure so he set em up, proper
Girl forgets boy in the blink of an eye
Without her doctor everything would be unwritten from time
But the boy did wait
And his love did grow
And he’d still learn things that he did not know
See, this girl she has traveled through time and through space
But what she loved was his stupid face

Like geronimo, he had crashed into a Pond
unsure about his face or what planet he was on
that's when he met her, certain that he could trust her
excited by his strangeness, fish fingers, custard
she was different, he could tell from the start
But the wall in her room was torn slightly apart
A door she never opened held a prophecy of doom
Didn't know she had a gift just by sleeping in her room
he took his leave but promised that he would return
she packed up all her bags and every quid she earned
she sat and waited dreaming of better days
but now certain that her apple surely kept him away
she grew older, colder, more bolder
innocence quickly turned to cold smolder
when he returned he had found her obsessed
she took his hand, disregarding her wedding dress
Oh! There’s a twist in our story
Guard your heartstrings, cause the deets a little gory
She likes her doctor cause he's clever and he's quirky
But she is getting married to a nurse we call him... I can't remember
There’s something's missing
Why has seen been crying? Whose lips had she been kissing?
Who gave her confidence? Who'd never oppose
Yeah she found the wedding ring but she don’t know who proposed
We skip ahead to the Pandorica
Situation stickier than summers out in Florida
Evils out in space all arrive in one place
All working together for an odd change of pace, but
Rory the Roman, kicking the door open
Save her from the Cybermen, bugged out and broken
Not himself so he kind of sealed her fate
So he’ll sit with that box and he'll wait and he'll wait
Track Name: Rock Em Sock Em feat. Wheelie Cyberman & Former Fat Boys
We knock em out of their socks
Like rock em sock em robots
We change the game and then we do it all again

First and foremost baby there is just no stopping me
I got my upgrades long ago when I was at academy
Lubricated sockets meshing well with my circuitry
Expected life span is like now until eternity
So keep your fleshy vessel, none of which is bulletproof
I even got a sensor watch your chickens when they come to roost
I run on hater juice, alcohol, and methane
Night vision, death ray, steel chassis, no pain
Connected motherboards blowing up your record stores
Analogue annihilated, rotaries will be no more
What the hell you waiting for? I'm arming up to start a war
Lieutenants are a menace and will tear you up like Lattimore
Land where nothing matters but the size of your fist
Put a mic inside my hand and I will take you to bliss
Teeth you shouldn't grit man I'm just taking the piss
But talk some shit and YOU get thrown out like my first name was chris
Track Name: Hear Me Roar
I'm not a blacksmith. I'm not your bread baker
Golden lion cub, they call me Kingslayer
Just because I did what nobody else had the heart to do
Mad King Areys kept on murdering his number two
The day I won his tournament I made a life decision
No land, no title, join this coalition
Kingsguard, my god it was so hard
Schooling every rookie squire sparing in the courtyard
There was Hightower, Dayne, Whent, and Selmy
Joined at sixteen, safe to say my dad was angry
We'd go to war fighting battles I didn't wanna fight
Which is hard to say because victory's my birthright
King stored a lot of wildfire, said to let it burn
In that moment thought I should be the one to end his turn
Sat the throne while an angry Stark approached me
Even then, I knew my father never liked me

Hear Me Roar
Wives shed tears when I go on tour
And while my beauty slowly fades like the setting sun
All my life I'll be known as the golden one

I married the obscene
Do some things you don't like when you need to be the queen
I heard my prophecy, me and Melara
I became a queen and she died in some water
Three perfect children born from my body
All golden of hair, each one is a hottie
Like their father but their father glad to say it isn't Robert
Brother's been a lover since the days when we were younger
Mirror double, but then there's trouble, I don't have a dick
So they taught him how to fight and they taught me how to knit
Didn't make sense, we were basically the same
And Jamie he has changed cause he doesn't feel my pain
Fight my father's battles, my baby takes the throne
But they ask for freaking much, leave my little king alone
Feels like all of my children have been stolen, killed or taken from me
Even still, I know my father doesn't love me

Hear Me Roar
Court full of traitors I can trust no more
And now it seems I can't even count on Jamie
I know for certain everybody's out to get me

Small frame large head, rubbish with a crossbow
Been all over Westeros, asking where do whores go?
Maybe I didn't? Where do I even I start?
My birth I killed my mother and it broke my father's heart
Or so I'm told, I'm just surprised to learn he even had one
Black eye green eye, assume that I'm the bad one
Tysha my love was just a whore or so I thought
My big brother told me so it left me little doubt
So I never trust a women, but still treat em with respect
The little lion ain't a monster, but is quick to kiss a neck
I traveled lands until they said I'd be the Hand
To my inbred little nephew and the sister I can't stand
Safe to say her yes men I had never liked
These assholes call me dwarf when they wanna act polite
Spent my whole life trying to prove I'm not the villain
And my father never loved me. I don't care because I killed him

Hear Me Roar
The world's much colder at 3 foot 4
Battle scars causing more than a limp
In the end, you will bow to the imp
Track Name: Million Feet High [an interlude]
I'm a million feet high in the air, don't care
About my problems on the surface, they can't reach me here
I could travel to Columbia and still I'mma profit
Timey-wimey stuff like it's Tennant and Moffit
Whining then stop it. Handle this lock pick
Strike all sides like a cat in a mosh pit
Thought that I lost it, pained and accosted
You fire hard stares, yo, I fire rockets
Checking out the AD, try to get me, it's a pity
That I'm really getting gritty, gonna sink ya floating city
Situation getting sticky, kick the doors in like I'm Biggie
World is magic and it's tricky, to be honest kinda shitty
They don't get me, wanna stick me with a bullet in the back
But I'm thinking they rethink it when the ravens on attack
Treated like a bandit or a proper propagandist
Swear to god before I perish, i'mma get this girl to Paris
Track Name: Monster feat. Mikal kHill & Adam WarRock
How could heightening of senses make you miserable?
What could ever make you hate your favorite animal?
I never plan an action, everything I do instinctual
Don’t really care for ‘ware’ because it ain’t all that original
Military dog, I guess they kinda meant it literal
Told the fam I love em when the bastards faked my funeral
Subject to experiments, I’m suffering from ailments
Got tingles in my ligaments, Swollen like I'm on supplements
Man or freakin monster, kinda walking a thin line
If I knew this back in school I would have kept all my grades high
Lesson of the story is you never trust an alchemist
Equivalent exchange, hold the reigns like ventriloquist
But I can’t bite the hand that feeds, bleeding out obedience
Loyal to a fault with the urges of a hedonist
Chimaera kinda chuckles when you think that I’m the monster
The very first attempt was a father on his daughter

((hook x2))
I am just the monster that you made me
The fire that you started in my soul what raised me
So give yourself a great big pat on the back
Then always watch it cause I'm coming for your skull with a cricket bat
Track Name: Head Six
My 24 hour fantasy
Every capacity you know to show me ecstasy
And you're just for me, other can't even glance
Drop of a hat, inside my pants, no matter where we at
And before I never knew that kind of passion
Every action an attraction to illicit satisfaction
And your damn fine good at your job, like you were built for it
If I wasn't atheist I'd say you're heaven sent
Lets head back to my quarters and toast
When it comes to being wanted, we're the universe's most
You know how much I love to spend my time on the coast
It's like you live inside my head like you were Snow and I'm Ghost
You're gonna get me into trouble
Now is not the time to rub your chest across my stubble
But I'd be lying if I said I didn't want it
Have anything you want, all alarms I disarm it

I can be your Gaius
And you could be my Head Six
Getting hooked on that good love
Baby we could be timeless
I can be your Gaius
And you could be my Head Six
You’re an gift from a true God
Angel in robotics

And when we're separated, I'll be honest, I trip
Like I'm sweating and I'm pacing like I can't get a grip
You always get me happy with a move of your hip
And you make me feel important when they treat me like shit
Which happens more than I'd like to admit
But I can keep it legit, I only teared up a bit
Ya treat my life of chopped liver like it was a delicacy
Could take me from a farmer's son to the presidency
There must be others better than me
But you stick around and work it like a residency
And your history a mystery, I’m cracking the code
Love is so hot, we making Cloud 9 explode
They say there’s millions in the ocean that look similar
But no doppelganger hot figures could compete with ya
You make me dream of all the worlds that we could go to
I’m kind of happy that you made me get to know you

I can be your Gaius
You could be my Head Six
Get hooked on that good love
Baby we could be timeless
I can be your Gaius
You could be my Head Six
You’re an gift from a true God
Angel in robotics

You’re into wild theories, I don’t get all that stuff
But it’s hard to disagree when what you’re preaching is love
They say we’ve done it before, I hope we do it again
And if you’re into being awesome you can call up a friend
Keep me prisoner? I promise I won’t get far
Got me trippin like my heart’s about the size of a Baystar
Catching me off guard, you’re smooth but you go hard
It kind feels like we found love in a junkyard
But I can see that you’re friend aren’t really into me
And my friends are kind of burning you an effigy
And between me and you they kind of hate me too
All because we do not follow What Would Husker Do?
Out of the blue and now we’re stuck in the black
But the way you wear that dress I hope we never go back
Quote me on that, we’ll find a new place to live
Get together, fall in love, and have a couple of kids
Track Name: Holiday feat. Tylr DeShae
I wanna take us on a holiday
My fam pack bags, leaving right away
The only place I wanna be is the beach
And once we’ve arrived, know you'll never wanna leave, no
I wanna take us on a holiday
iPhones thrown away on this vacay
Tommy Bahama got me looking like a tool
But ya never really notice when your lamping at the pool

Alternate reality, we have a lot of time
And I've saved a lot of duckets cause I'm always on my grind
Accumulate vacation now I'm gonna make it mine
Gonna be sublime, are ya ready for a ride?
Hit the coast, which one, it doesn't matter
We can't get there any faster, have the baby drain her bladder
Because I don't wanna stop until we make it to the water
Closer that we get ya know it's only getting hotter
Baby I just really wanna see ya in your swimwear
So this hotel room boo, let's get out of here
I wanna feel the sand between all my toes
And my back and my butt and my hair and my noes
Let's have a couple drinks inside some little coconuts
The beauty unrelenting and you know that it ain't letting up
So I'll be the Gilligan if you're the Mary Ann
I know your fantasies like their the back of my hand, yeah

Nothing cuter than our Nuggy in a swimsuit
At least while she's younger, when she's older then it's up for dispute
Afraid of ocean but a fan of sand castles
Dominate the surf like I dominate a rap battle
I don't battle, that's the joke, didja get it?
Not from around here and happy to admit it
Can't appreciate a paradise when it's in the back yard
Like take all the credit when you know you didn't work hard
My baby catching all the rays
Kind of like the way that I wished my Hawks played
Sorry baby, I'm sorry. no I won't talk sports
My only goal to make you want me while I wear these shorts
Nuggy please don't cry because a crab got close
Swear he didn't mean to scare ya, we're just in his house
Step back, quick flash, take a photo, make a memory
I always want you near to me, I love my goofy family
Track Name: Save Point
You’re always where I wanna be at
True fact, been in love with you since way back
Don't spend the time with you like I did some years ago
Feeling terrible, showing up like 'where he go?'
Feel like why I do I work all these hours for?
Is a life away from home what you're wanting more?
Feel like you're just slumming in a dungeon
Chivalry and bravery the traits I hope to summon
Jump into your arms and say baby I'm here to login

There was too much hype
We couldn’t help but disappoint
Maybe we can fix this
Go back in time like a save point

I used to skip school just to be with you
It's like I probably should have never had a vehicle
Me and my friends used to take turns in grade school
By fifteen you could handle up to four dudes
But I am the monogamous type
And four blocks in a box wasn't feeling the hype
So we secluded by ourselves in the basement
We would stay so amazing, the games we was playing
And I could always take you anywhere
Most impressive thing there at the World's Fair
And like me, you don't like the high degrees
And some of my favorite things are Japanese
I'm Sam Fisher being silent when the guards patrol
Space animal doing every barrel roll
Many plans on an Oregon caravan
Goof and Donald there to have my back in Neverland
You changed me from a little boy to a Mega Man


Where would I be without the up down left right?
Running up to walkthrus when I don't feel bright
But you keep bringing less to the table
And with every make over you become less stable
We used to chill all night in my bed
Until the ring that you rock turned red
Sad story said. Like you just disconnect
And the only thing you wanna talk about's the undead
Drudge up the past, everything is a sequel
Never thought that I would think we should see other people
Lately, to be honest, you've become quite a bore
Or maybe I'm just tired of us keeping a score
Could we ever go back like we had it before?
When I was young and couldn't picture ever wanting you more?
Or am I only trying to cling to my past
Loading up these memories that we never had
And how this whole thing could be replaced by an iPad
