Track Name: Lock & Load (feat. Ghost Night & Six the Northstar)
Fortuitous and truthful;
not a hero, but I'm useful.
Odds are stacked, but every attack I will fight back.
Track Name: Lwaxana (feat. Rabbit Hole Revelations)
I can tell you how it ends,
just around the bend.
We end up as friends, cause I'm
too hot to handle, too old a scandal,
can't hold a candle to

leaving well enough alone.
Feeling ill and on your own, cause I'm
too hot to handle, too old a scandal,
can't hold a candle to...

Patience is a young girl's game
and I don't got the time for that anymore.
Do you even know my name
or is that too much to ask for?

Not worth your time; you're not worth mine.
After my shine, now that you know who I am.
Now I'm the best thing and your undoing
comes with you losing what

little chance you had
to prove that you're a man. Oh, I am
too hot to handle, too old a scandal,
can't hold a candle to...
Track Name: Dian Masalanta (feat. similarobjects, Akisuda & Water Gun Water Gun Sky Attack)
Should have spoken up, and said:
"Sorry, that's just not right!"
Treat me with disrespect.
Thought I wouldn't want to start a fight.
You think it's easy to walk all over me.

Everything in your eyes
has already been done and said.
Surpise, surprise!
Welcome to the unexpected.
You think it's easy.

Lie. I choose my battles to win my wars,
and your attention is not worth fighting for.
Track Name: Bypass (feat. Flawed Logic & Dylan Pizarro)
This heart can't handle too much pain.
She's flying ever closer to the flame.
She shouldn't, but she does what she does just the same.
Wash it off and scrub the stain.

I can live with it but I'm not insane.
I know I'll live longer if I live plain.

And if I feel cheated out of a righteous anger,
I'll look in myself and try to understand her.

Let it go.
Track Name: The Grind (feat. Almost Technicolor & Six the Northstar)
Who wouldn't wish for the hood old days?
Who wouldn't kush for a good old fade?
Track Name: Lutang (feat. B-Roc)
Dalawang magkaibang puso.
Kaya ka nahihibang, siguro
ang utak mo ay lutang.
Paano? Maayos pa kung pumili ka na lang.

Sagana ka kung sagana sa pagmamahal,
pero sagad na sagad na ang ikukumpisal.
Kaya sawa na, sawa na ako sa kakaasa.
Wala na, wala na talaga

...akong paniniwalaan.
Bakit pa? Tiwala kong nasasayang
Sa kanya, mabuti pa kung iniwan
para sa iba. Umayos ka, pinili mo na yan.

Hindi ko na kaya.

...pagmamahal sa pagitan natin, 'ga.
Sakaling 'di makatwiran, sa'kin pa.
Nagsinungaling lang minsan aaminin mo pa.
Umayos ka, pinili mo na yan.
Track Name: Storm & Sea (feat. Ghost Night & Earthmover)
If you were the storm and I, the sea,
I'd still want to keep you safe and warm and close to me.
Waters will run dry, waters we both need;
if you were the storm and I, the sea.

Capsizing my doubts and my common sense
in oceans of truth and no false pretenses;
Defenseless, I am.
Capsizing my doubts and my common sense
in oceans of truth and no false pretenses;
Defenseless, yes.

If you were the storm and I, the sea,
I'd send you every ship laying its claim over me.
Do everything you ask, but I will take the lead;
if you were the storm and I, the sea.

If you were the storm and I, the sea,
won't batten down the hatches. I want to be
eye to eye when when you stand down, and I recede;
if you were the storm and I, the sea.
