The Warrior 02:11
Verse 1 I’m a warrior, hack ‘em up, live by Bushido Chop heads, stack ‘em up, don't give a fuck about a c-note No free throws, throw a knife right through your neck If your enemy, blow a gauge right through your chest No contest, bathe in the blood of the dead Katana blade stained, permanent color red Hip Hop is a battle, hit the scene go berserk Torch blaze the saddle I can kill with a verse Never quench my thirst, I kill it and want more Gift and the curse, words kick through your front door I’m an animal, damage you all, live for the carnage Flow mechanical, hammer through walls, always hit the target Cause panic, tyrannical jaws rip through your carcass Gross antics, my mandibles raw, your ripe for the harvest Warlord incarnate, no need for you to hide Hidden will appear before your eyes right before you die Verse 2 Next wave, charge, enter the skirmish with blood lust My samurai mind sent to demolish with one thrust One touch, turn you to ash and let the breeze scatter Field is home, step up to the plate I’m yelling swing batter Never leave tattered, leave enemies shattered Never concede, rather victory’s all I believe matters Long cloak, sharp edge, known to harbor vendettas White skin, dark flows that go way back, I’m a trendsetter Follow the warrior, never get behind a pacifist Imagine it, before my hand holds a white flag I’m smashin’ it Running through the front lines, slashing legs yellin’ timber Decapitation fascination, choppin’ heads in slivers Swim in red rivers, the winter is coming hither Hidden death giver, the ribbon is cut with scissors Grand opening, see the warrior, come one and all Death in battle is honor, the warrior answers the call

Verse 1 (Hidden) Let the battle be joined, that’s the slogan Blood of the samurai, hand of the shogun Four stand strong out of forty-seven ronan Charge the enemy line, straight fury leave it broken Katana held high, blood drips down the blade Hip deep in the slain, showers of red rain Wear the mask of a demon, DragonBorn and L.A. Lucifer laughs loud on this deadly hell day Verse 2 (Hidden) Attack with the might of a warrior, watch ‘em perish Slash a coward as he trembles, gain his spirit Blood samurais never die, battle is eternal Horse ride to the after life, battle in the inferno Pain is my friend, carnage is my master The past is irrelevant, wrath for the bastards Death is glorious, take the form of the skull The story gory, the four were born in the cold Verse 3 (Hidden) A thousand cut down at the hands of the four Blood drenched ground to slick to stand from the gore Hands covered, face glistens, listen to death scream out A whole army destroyed, see the red bleed out We are monstrous, to battle is the only way The air is ominous, remain savage to the grave Face down the horde, the four become godlike Countless armies prepare to fight and they will all die Verse 4 (Hidden) A grotesque display, all focused engaged On destruction, inhale smoke from the blaze Bodies burn, stomachs turn, watch the heads roll Many tried but there is no escape from death’s toll Swing the sword to the finish, dagger to the end Lucifer’s Apostles combine with a dragon never bend You’ll never win, It’s your destiny to fail Four warriors form together like weaponry from hell

The Way 02:17
Verse 1 Hidden drop fire, flow with the power of bushi Plate full of beats, raw, devour like sushi Fuck the mainstream, the music does not move me Tired of the tricks, bend ‘em over the knee like Lucy Strong like Bruce Lee, born with a dragon mind Fuck your life, before I conform I would rather die Walk the plank with glee and scream see you in the afterlife Not a prank, I would accept my death, never bat an eye I take pride in being different, your simple My mental power so strong, pop you like a pimple Mix my voice with oriental sounds, I’m monumental Face the hero, strike ‘em down, like the monster Grendel Put my pencil to the page and scribe an epic The shit y'all write is just a tragedy, 9/11 You fight with sticks and stones, an what I write is my weapon No longer say I rap cause I don’t like where it's headed Verse 2 The way is my own, fierce like a warrior’s vision Never be a clone, I don’t care about who listens Unique as can be, I am one of a kind Over the heads of most, see, dumb never lies Your stupid, I’m not, drop extravagent lines Oh me, oh my mind is magic inclined Make magic with rhymes , I am not just a person Full of ancient knowledge like the lost books of Merlin Fuck your style, I’m done with that shit You should be too, the fat lady sung like a bitch Treat beats like a step kid, beat ‘em up daily It’s just straight up fuck you, I don’t want you to pay me I sit in a room alone, just a bit anti social I don’t mean deliver mail when I say that I’ll go postal I’m focused, never follow the way of another The blind follow the blind and the dumb lead the dumber

Seppuku 03:06
Verse 1 Die in battle, it’s the only way If not that get on your knees on that lonely day Never go out at the hands of a coward Never cower, I stand tall as the meteors shower Bring ‘em down, hit the deck, let the sky fall Fuckin’ clowns, no respect, let ‘em die small Never grovel, never bow, no fear in my eye balls Arrow to the chest, I’m still there when the fights off Let the cards fall where they may, fate is the master The bastards get in the way, slash ‘em up faster The path is true only if you choose honor The rest get chewed up, no clue, no bother Take aim fire, bullet true, see the head drop Gaze in the eyes, red and blue, as the heart stops Never hate the kill, embrace the conundrum No rage, hands still, a warrior is a hunter Chorus 1 Seppuku is honor, the father displays The way the warrior follows is all in the brain Accept the path, never run, walk through the rain Never fear life or death, you must swallow the pain Seppuku is honor, the battle’s inside Death becomes life, don’t get captured alive Seppuku is honor if you live by the sword A warrior must only die of his own accord Verse 2 The soul is calm as the breath leaves the chest Eternal rest is no disease, seize death’s caress Ingest the poison, stand straight to the last second The backs heavy, the flag steady, the past lessens Take ‘em to the edge, bring ‘em all out Heavy heads, severed necks, let ‘em fall down Let the river run red ‘till they all drown Blade beckons death, hear the call now Destiny makes no mistakes, fate is the jester The hecklers get in the way, make sure they fester The records will show the brave through the ages The pages turn heavy, displayed by sages Hear the storm, feel it rage, destroy the whole lot Glowing flames, feel the blaze, burn the whole crop Turn the day to night, bathe ‘em all in kerosene The honor is to die and let all of the spirits free Chorus 2 Seppuku is honor, the father displays The way the warrior follows is all in the brain Accept the path, never run, walk through the rain Never fear life or death, you must swallow the pain Seppuku is honor, the battle’s inside Death becomes life, don’t get captured alive Seppuku is honor if you live by the sword A warrior must only die of his own accord

Verse (Hidden) Hidden’s blessed like a god among animals Rip flesh with the claws and the mandibles Weak foes give me no pause, I’m tyrannical Speak prose, I never fall for the anecdotes No antidote for this poison, I am viper-ish I don’t miss, Iron fist is what I’m striking with K.O., watch him fall to the floor Pummel the face ‘till he can’t brawl anymore Hachiman, I am god to the senshi Bushi within me will soon be ascending I follow the way of the blood soaked sword No blockade can stop me, I run through doors Cut ‘em down let ‘em lay Let ‘em drown, let ‘em fade I will never fade away, my katana will be legend Ronan number forty seven born to make a strong impression Chorus Hachiman, I am god to the senshi Hachiman, I am god to the senshi Hachiman, I am god to the senshi Hachiman, I am god to the senshi Hachiman, I am god to the senshi Hachiman, I am god to the senshi

Verse (Hidden) First shot got ‘em dead to rights Ride on the shogun, he’ll be dead tonight Fear no one, big sword cut swift Anyone oppose leave ‘em prone, folded like a bitch Hidden lives the life of a warlord Bloody days and nights, feel the fright like I’m Mordor Like a warlock, words captivate like spells Strike the unworthy worms, decapitate the frail Fuck rap, I will conquer like a Khan Eat beats like a monster ‘till I’m gone Unholy spawn, I dwell in the underground Associate with followers of hell when they come around The apostles, we transform to the killer form Thunder blasts and lightning ‘till every other rapper feel the storm Cause a ruckus, megalomaniac like Jim Jones Snatch a rapper by the toe and snap his neck like thin bones
7.
Verse (Hidden) I write with the power of life, power of death Every breath begets change, every coward is left Quick sand, second chance, never take an hour to step Stairs infinite, begin the quest, the watching owl is left Kings raise the scepter, the lying leopard has leapt As he crept with catlike prowess where every records kept Catch your breath, I watch in awe, jaw to the floor As the frauds keep claiming God and walk through the door Take two, take a second, let the syllables set and harden Several artists claiming seven as they step into my garden Hands down I am the sage that gave the ignorant a pardon Gave the blind sight, the dark light, disease it was discarded The sea was parted, staff up, the mystery is real Symbolic mystery lifted by mystic pencils that I wield

Slip 04:16
Verse 1 For years I’ve been looking at my life like it’s two bit No if or and's, no question when I will improve it Just ruthless decisions, no heart whatever the mission I do it True shit, these loose lips could sink two ships Now I’m trying to think before I speak Put my heart into my words, trying to eat before I drink Now I’m trying to look before I leap Put my soul into my actions, trying to sow before I reap See I never gave a fuck Thought no one ever gave me enough But I see the error in that mind state The crime rate keeps growing, but now I know that I’m safe I turned my back upon a lot But I never ran, I simply walked away before I got shot Now I’m sitting thinking ‘bout the realist shit Life seems meaningless, until you start to feel it slip Chorus 1 Never looking at my life, only looking for the prize No one can budget proper ‘till they start looking at the price The mirror had me looking in my eyes Thinking what would it be like to start looking with my mind One day you’ll hear the knock and you’ll know that this is it But only once you reach the edge and you start to feel it slip We feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip Life is quick so right the ship, before it slips Verse 2 Remember one thing when you start to feel you’ve been bested The lesson we never truly learn until the deathbed The hows and whys don't matter much, it’s bad enough We spend our time staring at numbers always trying to add ‘em up You’ll never have enough until you give on that dream Scrooge McDuck was sad as fuck, this life is not a magazine This life is not always bad as it seems Go soak it up, become a sponge, spend the cash on magic beans It doesn't matter if they're real or not The realist shit in life is the day when you stop feeling that knot In your stomach, always wondering when is that and where is that Why is his better than mine and why is hers better than that Be happy with what you have It’s so cliche and yet we all forget and live like Mr. Crabs The truth about money, it can only buy shit And you'll realize the truth when you feel this life slip Chorus 2 Never looking at my life, only looking for the prize No one can budget proper ‘till they start looking at the price The mirror had me looking in my eyes Thinking what would it be like to start looking with my mind One day you’ll hear the knock and you’ll know that this is it But only once you reach the edge and you start to feel it slip We feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip Life is quick so right the ship, before it slips Verse 3 The clock keeps ticking every day Incessantly we try to master our time in every way But life is not about a clock, about an hour or a minute Life is about how you spend it, the good times we find within it The clock doesn't care when you die, it just keeps spinning Time is venom, take the time to feel the rhythm Its cliche, but stop and smell the flowers It’s ok, even if for just one minute every hour I know this is tough for the restless I wrestle with this, my brain is constant congested It’s like all my thoughts are infested Always trying to cook the food without stopping to ingest it But that road is a dead end The only finish line we cross is loneliness and dead friends So stop to take in the fresh air for a bit If not now, then you'll do it once you feel the world slip Chorus 3 Never looking at my life, only looking for the prize No one can budget proper ‘till they start looking at the price The mirror had me looking in my eyes Thinking what would it be like to start looking with my mind One day you’ll hear the knock and you’ll know that this is it But only once you reach the edge and you start to feel it slip We feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip, we feel it slip Life is quick so right the ship, before it slips

Wild Arms 03:33
Verse 1 Let me tell you a story, this is how it began A boy on a farm in a far off land He lived life pure no blood or carnage and He was content on his farm, had no farther plans One day with a crash, the sky fell down A glowing orb hit the ground, cracked, demons poured out The boy had no choice, he stood in dismay As the demons proceeded to crush all in their way The dark ones had a plan, everyone would be harmed The boy had to make a stand, he put a gun on his arm And went wild, attacking the metal beasts with a frenzy Blasted hundreds but the enemies were never ending As time passed on, the evil army grew And the boy gained companions, first one, then two Now a trio they traveled the land collecting weapons They knew a big battles at hand up in the heavens Chorus 1 A boy when it began, battle scarred became a man Wild arms, big guns charging through the lands Started out as one but it soon became three Great minds face adversity and do the same thing Life was just normal then they were thrust in the fold Tragedy breeds warriors, true warriors will break the mold Face an army with no fear and do ‘em harm Become one with the gun and fight with wild arms Verse 2 As the journey progressed, they faced many foes Battles took many forms, had to stay on their toes They battled across the planet until they learned The demons only purpose was to see the earth’s surface burn The demons were made of metal, they came from the sky They would not be satisfied ‘till everyone died So the trio had to make a choice, stay and be killed Or take the fight to the demon lords slay them for real The demon soldiers were dumb, they just followed orders The trio decided they had to face the true warriors Up in the sky, so they took a trip to the demon ship And proceeded to lay siege, it was time to finish this The battle was joined, demon lords had the upper hand Home field advantage, but the trio had another plan They combined arms, put the barrel to the ship core Let off rounds at the same time, finally finished this war Chorus 2 Normal at the start, but the trio had heart Warrior spirit lives strong in those who choose the part When tragedy strikes a man picks up a gun And savagely strikes the enemy, wild arms never run It all started when the boy vowed to never give in In the process he gained two true friends They laid down their lives to gain the true prize Moral of the story, true warriors thrive on sacrifice
