H! Vltg3 - Evidence featuring Pharoahe Monch and DJ Babu

Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes, sometimes...

Hybrid
I've been digging in the crates ever since I was living in space
Before the rat race, before monkeys had human traits
I mastered numerology, big band theology, performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
Invented the mic so I can start blessing it
Chin-checkin' kids to make my point like an impressionist
Many men have tried to shake us
But I twist mic chords to double helixes to show them what I'm made of
I buckle knees like leg braces
cast a spell of instrumental-ness on all of you emcees who hate us
So you can try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry on
From now to infinite, let icon be bygones
I fire bombs, ghostly notes haunt this
I tried threats, but moved on to a promise
I stomp shit with or without an accomplice
And run the gauntlet with whoever that wants this

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide

Akira
I've put a kink in the backbones, of clones, with microphones
Never satisfied my rhymes jones
Spraying bright day over what you might say
My blood types krylon, technicolor type-A
On highways write with road rage
pages of wind, in cages a tin, that bounce all around
Surround sound
Devouring the scene
Subliminal gangrene paintings, over all the same-thing
Sing-songs karaoke copy bullshit
Break bones verbally with sticks and stones tactics
Forth dimension, combat convention
Write rhymes at ease while the track stands at attention
Meant to put you away, with the pencil
Pistol, official, sixteen line rhyme missile
While you risk your all
I pick out at your flaws
Spitting raw blah, blah, blah you can say you saw

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide

Who's the man, demandin' your hand over your land rover?
no mans bolder when he jams your plans over
I inflict sclerosis, the most ferocious
When I spy my third eye's extremely high voltage
That's why I need ruby-quartz glasses, cause when I glance
There's a chance, then I might blast the masses
Subliminals transmitted through piano
Integrated in flow, calculated in nano
I use skills when I need, please heed the rhyme
I heal when I bleed when I proceed through time
I walk through walls and the inanimate obstacles
By inducing the reduction of cells and molecules
I bring the knowledge you swallow a steak that's a hologram
I box your head, fatten your lip like collagen
The telepath deliver verses with no postage
Pharoah Monch, Mike Shinoda, we high voltage

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin' you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide

Pts.of.Athrty - featuring Jay Gordon

Yo, yo
Forfeit the game
Before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame
Puts your name to shame
Cover up your face
You can't run the race
The pace is too fast
You just won't last

You love the way I look at you
While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through
You take away if I give in
My life, my pride is broken

You like to think you're never wrong (You like to think you're never wrong)
You have to act like you're someone (You have to act like you're someone)
You want someone to hurt like you (You want someone to hurt like you)
You want to share what you've been through
You live what you've learned

You love the things I say I'll do
The way I'll hurt myself again just to get back at you
You take away when I give in
My life, my pride is broken

You like to think you're never wrong (You like to think you're never wrong)
You have to act like you're someone (You have to act like you're someone)
You want someone to hurt like you (You want someone to hurt like you)
You want to share what you've been through
You live what you've learned

Yo, yo
Forfeit the game
Before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame
Puts your name to shame

By Myself (Marilyn Manson Remix)

What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I follow my instincts blindly?
Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening? Do I
Sit here and try to stand it, or do I
Try to catch them red-handed?
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?

Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin
I make the right moves but I'm lost within
I put on my daily facade, but then
I just end up getting hurt again.

By myself (myself)
I ask, why (myself)
I can't rely on myself (myself)
I ask, why
But in my mind I find
I can't rely on myself

I can't hold on
(To what I want when I'm stretched so thin)
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
(To anything watching everything spin)
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I turn my back, I'm senseless
But to go blindly seems defenseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on
Then they'll take from me 'till everything is gone, if I
Let them go, I'll be outrun, but if I
Try to catch them, I'll be outdone
If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer
Then I'll be buried in the silence of the answer

By myself (myself)
I ask, why (myself)
I can't rely on myself (myself)
I ask, why
But in my mind I find
I can't rely on myself
In my mind I find

I can't hold on
(to what I want when I'm stretched so thin)
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
(to anything watching everything spin)
With thoughts of failure sinking in

How do you think
I've lost so much?
I'm so afraid (I'm so afraid)
I'm so afraid (I'm so afraid)
I'm out of touch (just nice to know...)
How you suspect (how you suspect)
I will know what to do
When all I know
Is what you tell me to?

Don't you (know)
I can't tell you how to make it (go)
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
I can't seem to convince myself (why)
I'm stuck on the inside

Don't you (know)
I can't tell you how to make it (go)
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
I can't seem to convince myself (why)
I'm stuck on the other side

I can't hold on
(To what I want when I'm stretched so thin)
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
(To anything watching everything spin)
With thoughts of failure sinking in

I can't hold on
(to what I want when I'm stretched so thin)
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
(to anything watching everything spin)
With thoughts of failure sinking...
