Verse 1 Step into my mind, look around, shit is crazy Disheveled, un-leveled, it's like the devil's got me lately Rainy days, run a muck, mud covered face Sunny days run away, swing nun-chuck and mace Run from the bass, no trace when the beat hits Three clips, so discrete the music didn't see shit Sink ships, berserker gone in a frenzy Uncontrolled rage, I probably need a sensei Swing the sword steady, never wait 'till your ready Body light without the head, hit the floor heavy Scream, never mumble, storm bring, levies crumble Sound waves born, eject team, ready rumble Verse 2 Back from the dead, bring dread, got it locked up Drum to the head, like a gun got 'em chalked up Ammo stocked up, the words come freely Hidden to the death, my own reflection can't see me They asked me if I'm still going crazy I said maybe because lately I've been feeling a bit zany Cartoon rhymes, harpoon sharp like shark bite Cut 'em up like sharp knife Roadrunner rippin' shit, trying to bite the road Catch the coyote slippin', Acme dynamite explode Catch you on the flip side Riptide, move mountains, others just get by Spit shine, never with mine, ever severing spines Letters leveraging minds, even better with time Time, Never cease Pick apart opponents speech and shatter every piece Verse 3 Mangle the drums, darkness strangle the sun Marksman hit the target, dead shot, slain from the gun Insane how I come from all angles at once Regardless of what I'm still taking your lunch Bully on the beat, beat it bloody red, beets Lot of bloody red sheets from these bloody red cleats And I don't even play soccer Pair of scissors with a knife, call it the rage shocker In flames, spit enraged, yeah I did that Fell off the map 'till I came back Sinbad Riff-raff get slapped, run ask where your friends at Sit back, click clack, bullets don't ask they yell get back Turn up the volume They say I got problems, but don't say I never solve 'em The voices keep calling, so I'm bound to answer I'm there even when you don't see me, call me cancer

Verse 1 Sick fuck syndrome, sickness symphony Enter the darkness with centipedes slithering Entities enter me, rendering vividly Dreams of viciousness, satisfy sensories Never censor me, injure for centuries Corrupt minds, distort pure memories Cold, disease of the soul Evil untold, keys to the mold Unspeakable, teachable, throughout history Misery glistening, many visit me Neck hairs bristling, I'm always listening Offer solutions to problems they present to me Words menacing, daylight diminishing Identity hidden within everyone's chemistry Old, many times took hold Evil untold, constant control Hook 1 Dwell in the darkness, midst the aggression Muse of the heartless, hidden efflorescence Incessant, incessant, incessant, incessant Endless sickness symphony never lessens Eternal presence, past to the present Every mind, every brain, king to the peasant Incessant, incessant, incessant, incessant Endless sickness symphony never lessens Verse 2 Sick fuck symphony, good heart fallacy Malice gleams bright, moonlight surrounding me Darkness set deep, never get it outta me Enraged like fire, embrace the analogy Face the conundrum, two faces challenging Balloting votes, wicked tongue taste brutality Torn, birth of the storm For warned, thirst brought to form Validate violence, riot bring fatality Callously silence, all those who doubt the beast Wicked notes ring loud, the sound will drown the screams Out, sounds sicken, stricken through the galaxy Forbidden rhythm lives deep inside the mind's fallacy Inside is nothing, incessant, no finality Scorn, presence forlorn Minds torn, incessant was born Hook 2 Dwell in the darkness, midst the aggression Muse of the heartless, hidden efflorescence Incessant, incessant, incessant, incessant Endless sickness symphony never lessens Eternal presence, past to the present Every mind, every brain, king to the peasant Incessant, incessant, incessant, incessant Endless sickness symphony never lessens

Hidden Verse 1 Look into the mirror, what do I see Face full of terror looking back at me Try to explain my feelings, no one listens No assistance, since the age of thirteen on a mission Of self destruction, no self discovery Suddenly the mirror image distorted from underneath The mask covered me, sickened, Hidden was conceived Personality divided bore fruit of deceit Torn asunder, two minds, two lives No one understands, no one shares the same plight Hear the thunder, lightening bolts tear the night Scream at the sky but it doesn't hear me right Embrace the darkness, now all smiles fake Two faced with two fates, two dinner tables, two plates The dichotomy is real, one face accepted, one forbidden True story of a boy who grew up to be Hidden Hook 1 Hidden, two faced, distorted Hidden, true face contorted Almost thirty years, still got nothing to give Happy is a myth, don't give a fuck, let me live Hidden, Two faces, one name Hidden, Flip the coin, join the game No one ever understood when I tried to let 'em in So I keep it to myself, only when I die will it end Verse 2 The truth is, I'm ruthless, no consideration in this brain Only pain, pure disdain for those who live a life full of refrain Not restrained, life is attrition, Hidden I remain Not contained or acclaimed, I sit and listen to the rain Alone at home, but this home is not my home Not my own, I share it with fraternal clone, all unknown I've been staring at these walls for twenty years Never knowing which face to wear to face my fears Screaming please help me Substance drowns the tears, no I never cried once So many drugs I only ever tried once to truly be healthy All the rest of my life been blurry, memories fading Always a hurry, one step from death, enemies waiting Never take me, forsake me, inside I stay No metaphor, the raven nevermore, go away Gone away, heart of the grench but it never grows Faced the world so much, face became hidden it never shows Hook 2 Hidden, two faced, distorted Hidden, true face contorted Almost thirty years, still got nothing to give Happy is a myth, don't give a fuck, let me live Hidden, Two faces, one name Hidden, Flip the coin, join the game No one ever understood when I tried to let 'em in So I keep it to myself, only when I die will it end Hook 3 Hidden, two faced, distorted Hidden, true face contorted Almost thirty years, still got nothing to give Happy is a myth, don't give a fuck, let me live Hidden, Two faces, one name Hidden, Flip the coin, join the game No one ever understood when I tried to let 'em in So I keep it to myself, only when I die will it end

Verse 1 In the dark, living life with no lights on Every day, every night, feel like the fights on Paranoid in a void, I can't see shit Heart beat increasing feeling like I can't breath, shit On my knees sick, feeling deranged Words can't describe what I feel in my brain Cocaine, really did a number on my nerves Haven't touched it in years but I'm still feeling served Nightmares, dreams never nice, can't sleep right Beer is the only thing keeping me alive Panic button, feel ill, time to take flight Fear is the only thing that makes me wanna die Never cry, tears bottled up inside, drowning Can't breathe, voice is mute, no one can hear the shouting In crowds, I find myself breathing heavy, counting Up to ten, begin again, always doubting Hook 1 In the dark, shadows all around In the dark, rattled by the sounds Take a breathe, I can feel my heart beat pound Blood pumping backwards, dizzy falling to the ground In the dark, I feel the walls closing in In the dark, vision steady growing dim Faces turn to monsters like here we go again Room spins out of control, feeling like it never ends Verse 2 Grip tight to my sanity, control is everything Try to let the sleeping dog lie but I can't let it be Damaging, twisted thoughts, wicked damage me I can feel the knocks pounding, incessant hammering Voices, I can hear them when I sleep Saying things that I should do and things that I should think On the brink, an if I snap then its to late No going back, no chance to clean the slate I don't want it, the phrase to sum it all up Screaming silently body hit the floor balled up Drugs, so many drugs, I can still feel it Sickness inside, feeling like I'll never heal it Kill it, kill it, kill the thoughts before they start Feeling dark, always dark, infatuated with the heart Always beating, shut it up Stuff the feelings in a locked box before they run a muck Hook 2 In the dark, shadows all around In the dark, rattled by the sounds Take a breathe, I can feel my heart beat pound Blood pumping backwards, dizzy falling to the ground In the dark, I feel the walls closing in In the dark, vision steady growing dim Faces turn to monsters like here we go again Room spins out of control, feeling like it never ends

Verse 1 Contrary to belief, I didn't choose this It chose me, raps were conducive For you to get to know me, the truth is I was always homely, reclusive I live two lives, dream lucid Contorted mind, snakes of Medusa Are useless when I use pens to lift roofs, shit I break barriers, scarier than a noose is One way to prove the power, I send you to where Proof is Paint a picture, crawl the wall like Peter Parker quicker Peter Piper picked a pail of pickles, I just spit the darker scripture Rip it sicker than a sickle cell anemia Give 'em hell, amnesia, hand feed 'em like the media Leave 'em wanting more, face down on the floor Four bars, fuck 'em up, like xanax times four That's sixteen, assisting the blind see the light more quickly When contents consisting of wit, see Hook 1 The words are amazing This pen is amazing Hidden is amazing What pains me is all the lazy people yelling pay me This beat is amazing The dude Drew is amazing The concepts are amazing What pains me is all the lazy people yelling pay me Verse 2 Bars hard to figure like a cell door Concepts complex, why I never sell more Fail more, sign me up, trip to outer space No one lines up to hear the man spit without a face Dip quick without a trace, outer limits Diminish a sentence Because you can't fathom shit without the bass Enough of that, bring it back to the basics Handing out lasik, lyrically giving face lifts Adjacent to rappers that never made it That make shit because they love it, not so sheep embrace it Face it, my pace quick, fuck the road I run a trail This is more about the scenery than the fucking mail Read the braille, never, blind does not intrigue me I care about the things I see, not about who sees me Easy, life is never hard until you set a goal And find yourself stuck around people you will never know Hook 2 The words are amazing This pen is amazing Hidden is amazing What pains me is all the lazy people yelling pay me This beat is amazing The dude Drew is amazing The concepts are amazing What pains me is all the lazy people yelling pay me

Verse 1 Money, I rap like I don't need it Urge to attack the track and I'm gonna feed it Heated discussions, busting, I'll never put it down Hip Hop is not a genre, it's more than just a sound Time to take down the idols, entitled, divided Your conscious mind, and all the blind ones denied it They fight it, but let the truth get you excited This life was made to live, not just sit around despising The others, the others Hey, I'm back like a cliche He say, always stay away from the she say The game doesn't need me, I need it No recognition, still I'll never even leave it Defeated, never that, indeed it's A puzzle, I'm hustling to pick up the pieces Reese's Verse 2 And most will never know How it feels to be the boss of your own flow No shows, I chose to make Hip Hop my side bitch Not because I'm not passionate, because the size fits I like it, but I wouldn't dare monetize Most commercial raps are lies and over dramatized Not mine, I say whatever the fuck I feel All real, control the wheel whenever I spill Oh dear, here he goes again with the preaching reach inside their minds and let it sink in Let it sink in Strengthened, strong voice, speak 'till the beat ends Recently words been reaching, let 'em seep in You don't have to be the best to be decent No matter what anyone says don't let the beast in Besides it's only opinion, defending against them Is useless, hey, chunk the deuces

Verse 1 Sometimes I feel like quitting Nothing specific, the life I'm living Lost it's rhythm, dimmer vision Cut the lights off, bad decisions Take the venom, it's like even when I win I still feel like I'm not winning I should have nothing to fuss about, everything gravy But I don't give a fuck about anything lately Many friends long gone, past life fading Makes me question who I am, last in line waiting I've been waiting for what, it never comes Give me something, anything, good or bad I'll never run Turned my life around, picked it up, put it on the tracks Left it all behind, went underground and never looked back But along the way I lost something, but I don't know what it is We never know how much we need it 'till it's lost in the abyss Many tried but can't replace it, once it's dead and gone This goes out to those who lost their drive and will to belong Hook 1 Cup half empty, feelings of envy We pretend we're better off alone Watching intently, always defending Against anyone who tries to feel at home Alone is a disease, in the cold we freeze True then lonely never leaves Still we don't concede, maybe feel it as we scream Like a strong wind blowing through the leaves Verse 2 And now it's cool to be depressed But those who claim it never know what it's like to feel the stress No rhyme or reason, a feeling so subtle that I forget And go on with life, full speed running to the end But that's all it is, a race with no purpose Make it across the finish line and still feel worthless Stuff the feeling deep inside with little lies But it always comes back to the surface No matter how hard I try, it's never hard enough No matter how far I go, it's never far enough They say life is what you make it, an I've made a lot But this voice inside keeps talking and I can't make it stop Make it stop, thoughts only fade when the drinks heavy Severed ties several times, attempt to be steady But change is doomed to fail unless it's from within I'm stuck because inside is empty, never full again Hook 2 Cup half empty, feelings of envy We pretend we're better off alone Watching intently, always defending Against anyone who tries to feel at home Alone is a disease, in the cold we freeze True then lonely never leaves Still we don't concede, maybe feel it as we scream Like a strong wind blowing through the leaves Verse 3 Sometimes I wonder why I'm here No TV show, uncovered fears Life is not the wonder years Scream but nobody hears Wanna leave but it's coming clear My mind became a prison life sentence and I'm stuck in here I sold myself for a dime and a magic bean But money falls short, it can't buy you what you need We all give up on dreams just to keep our pockets fatter Like all we see is green, but in the end it doesn't matter The rat race, and price is steep, no joke In the end you lose your friends, left with no hope Disconnected, we're all disconnected Lives with no meaning, demeaned and disrespected Feelings of rejection, we've all been rejected All the mirrors broke, no self reflection We all have more in common than we know A fact that's overlooked because we all feel so alone

Verse 1 This is the end of everything Of all that is and will ever be Never see me carefree, happy go lucky life Internal world war, brain angry, fucking strife Fuck the light, turn it off, don't turn it up Future like a read parchment, go burn it up Churn 'em up, feelings rage, hurricane winds Stay numb, always numb, the Novocaine wins You know the name is Hidden and it's so true Barely know myself, what makes you think I wanna know you Darkness my virtue, let the words brew Spells so dank and dirty that the outcome will hurt you I dwell in a land, hot like Sudan, the man's wicked People see something's off about me like a damn Wiccan Sickened by my vision so I keep the sunglasses on No need to see the light now that I see that the past is gone See me passing on in a boat, ride the river Styx Clinically declared sane, how come I'm still considered sick Always riddled with bad decisions leaving remnants Of broken promises and the empty bags they were delivered in Hook 1 Darkness is a virtue Darkness is a virtue Never see me happy in the world I live Wasn't meant for me, I got nothing more to give Darkness is a virtue Darkness is a virtue Cut the lights off, darkness my only friend Living life wrong, heartless I wont pretend Verse 2 Fake smiles, fake faces, fake places Fake everything, the burden that fate places When the soul's gone everything left is arbitrary Ordinary battle scars become hard to bury Kind of scary, how one can lose the game but never play it Or how one thing can be so true that we never say it Never may it be said that I didn't try to be something more That I didn't given my everything, my spirit to the core But the floor grew tall, made of glass of my design And the ceiling grew small from the ravages of time The ever fated clock that never stops Ticking time bomb, the neighbor that never knocks So many thoughts and I don't want a single one Revert to hermit, arm the locks like a lethal gun Leaving none behind me, and no one before When nothing's all that's left, then you know nothing's in store Nothing more, never more, Edgar's raven speaks the truth To those who disagree then I propose you go and seek the proof When darkness is a virtue there's nothing left to come I struggled to cope with hope but stuck left with none Hook 2 Darkness is a virtue Darkness is a virtue Never see me happy in the world I live Wasn't meant for me, I got nothing more to give Darkness is a virtue Darkness is a virtue Cut the lights off, darkness my only friend Living life wrong, heartless I wont pretend
