Track Name: Nerds (You can count on thee)
***Verse 1***
Get your Teddy Ruxpin, there’s a story to tell
Sittin tough on our silicon thrown
No crown upon our dome, you can keep it see
Because until the meek inherit this piece
It’s the age of the geek
Tech tech horray, frakk the twenty-fifth of May, I’m claimin’ everyday nerd day
We don’t need the key to the city to be adored
But when you walk out your door
Be a Poe believer-fear never more
Everywhere like Verizon coverage
And when your pc breaks down, uh huh, your friends will love us
So be our brotha from another motha
Cute girls, maybe a little peek to show appreciation for the geek
Nerds unite, don’t stereotype
Our shapes and size is our greatest disguise
You better recognize that the guy that swept you off your feet might be an undercover geek
He’s charmin’ and sweet, but he’s watchin’ star wars as soon as you leave
Welcome to the evolution peeps, it’s the coolest nerd steez


***CHORUS***
Nerds, You can count on thee
Nerds, ride with me
Nerds, You can count on thee

Nerds, You can count on thee
Nerds, ride with me
Nerds, You can count on thee


***Verse 2***
We’re not defined by one line
We’re versatile kids, a Two way street,
I keep the balance, call me nerd sleek
The millennium geek that keeps it sci-fi hood
I embrace my shortcomings baby, it’s all good
For instance . . . . baaaaaaaby, I rap because I can’t sing

Back to reality, we’re emancipated
drink the kool-aid and join on in
Stop cryin’ like myspace when facebook stole their friends.
You need to realized that the nerdy life is heaven on earth
The xbox, ipad, nav on your whip
That Big screen, little screen, wifi you dig
All comes courtesy of a nerd’s hard work, so show love for the maker
You can curse us out later when we invent the terminator
But until then, be our friends ‘til the bitter end, we bring the other half of what the cool kids didn’t chip in
So get in where you fit in, and join the church of Geek to the ism
Where are vision is the only mission, explorin’ a form of prayer
Dr Suess this and dream only dreams could dream
And that dream is the stepping stone to one’s reality
And that’s why I am a nerd and I’m proud to be
And I’ll end this rap with a nerd gansta lean.

***CHORUS***
Track Name: JXD, Danielle Marie - JXD The Last Mindbender Book 3 (feat. Danielle Marie)
Woke up in a nightmare a damned man's vision
it wasn't the ghost of past or present
It was despair
said I couldn't wake until three answers I had given
a little boy asked me why his dad was missin'
tears raced down his cheek jealous of his other friends, it was father son week
He tugged on my shirt and asked me why I wouldn't tell him
I said I couldn't explain another man's motivation
but your setback is your greatest strength in a world of degradation
the walls your facin', use them for your benefit
convert it to energy for the life your facin', kid
rally your emotional troops
create one nation, Realize A mans free will directly effects the world around him and use that knowledge when your older and don't make the same mistake that haunts you now
dry your eyes

CHORUS
DRY YOUR EYES,
DRY YOUR EYES, DON'T YOU DARE CRY
REPEAT

LA LA
LA LA
LA LA LA LA LA

A little senorita with cute berets and dimples even sweeter
tears trickle down from her chin to her sneakers
she asked me why other girls chose to deceive her
why they poked and teased for no reason
did she do something wrong to deserve this treatment
I sighed and said, I can't explain their shun, but I know I've belittled others to reload my self esteem gun
but in the long run it helped little to none
our sunshine is in our own sun.
Ignore what they say and change your mind-state, hun.
Block the comments they bestow, convert it to a motivational one
because in the end, this world may hate you, but it's your decision to run your own life
enjoy the life your maker gave you
Stop throwin' away dollars and cents tryin' to buy their love, save it in your own bank because you'll need that life currency when retirement comes
uh, dry your eyes

CHORUS


The next one came direct, his concerns and troubles came like a verbal threat
he wiped his face quickly to hide his eyes were wet
I slit my wrist and drink to help me think
My sis committed suicide, my brothers in prison, my mom's strung out or dead, haven't seen here since last Christmas
My pops is a alcy and I think my fate is made.
What is my motivation in a life of decay?
Speechless, I didn't know what to say
This horror isn't over until an honest answer is made
Chaos, can't make a decision.
not your fault they failed you, a terrible condition
no one would blame you if you gave up
but your choices are not made until you make em
chances, take em, setbacks are just a shortcut to something amazing
and when they say you're hopeless, your life is mess, use that chip on your shoulder to overcome the rest
put that S on your chest and show them that your mind is ruthless because in the beginning you had nothing to lose, beggars don't choose, they just make moves until the end is nigh
but until that day comes, keep reachin' for the sky
dry you eyes

CHORUS
Track Name: Church of Blasphemy
I believe. . .
Just not the same thing as you

Of course I see the big picture, I framed it, dang it, I even geo tagged it and named it
But I still don’t understand the language
I’m stained with “insainment”
It’s not a word but I put it in laymen
That’s why I’m changing and standin’ in amazement that the people on the thrown are speakin’ from what looks like the mouth on their dome,
Disguised is a golden asshole
Uh oh, Yall cats are shook, because ain’t no such thing as the right good book
Look, I assume I’m dying tomorrow, so I dance with the Devil, drop beats God, he’s noddin’ his head, “man, yo, that shit is hot”
You’re offended, good, that line was for you
I’m offended everyday too, but unless your messin’ right’s or a life, do you
I have no time for your closed point of view
Because if there’s a plan for me, I got things to do
And If you can’t see my rhymes through the silver lining, then you’re simple minded.
I may as well be miming to a blind man
there’s no chance I’m holier than thou, but I’m wowed by the mindless walkin’ in the crowd
Your fake smiles are a cry for help, but you have to deal with the hands you were dealt
The real predicament is, if I was given everything in an instant, would I cease to strive
Is being human that need to want, whether it’s big or small, a meal or a car, would we die if we didn’t keep reachin’ for the stars
I don’t have the answer and neither do you
Despite what they say, the answers today may change
If you knew the start and the endin’, what would be the point of livin?
It’s that fear of the unknown that has us reachin’ for the answer, like a dope fiend
Reaching for something that contains nothing, it’s like a haunting
Always right behind us, and if they claim they have key, we latch right on, even if the solution is proven wrong
I’m guilty too, but I’m okay with the change
Because if you’re not open to the future, you’re a machine with no reveries
A true Runner knows about “electric sheep”, and the richest man that has everything has another scheme
So turn on your moral hi-beams and feel the blindness
Or bring your thoughts to the table for a new beginning, I’m listening
It’s never too late for another christening
You can’t teach a dog new tricks, it’s bullshit,
Hear something long enough you’ll start to believe it
I’ll B.F. Skinner you back into your own thinkin’
Start your own path of logic
For the search for answers is greater than an abundance of knowledge
And the man that finds his own path has the benefit of knowing everyone’s past including a new land
And that’s something even a machine can understand
And where I stand when I’m rhyming, is an island
Alone but the sun is shinin’
Because the church of blasphemy doesn’t need a pulpit for the spirit to sign in
Uh
