41. Message at the Tone I just came from planet Earth I left a note on their machine It was brown instead of blue and there was no sign of beings I hope they are okay but I'm not holding my breath Its orbit was kinda wobbly and I fear there's no one left The last anyone had heard from them seems they were playing games with fission Frying coal into the air like they were on a mission I scanned for their ecosystem I didn't find a trace The upper atmosphere was gone and there was debris in its place It seems their thirst for energy led to a path that wasn't wise Which really is too bad I kinda liked those guys

I'm adrift and exist at the mercy of the junk I shower when I feel imperiled by the funk I'm no dummy, I just don't get that motivated by the money I keep waiting for it to all have been a joke that wasn't funny Not much left of my home planet the Earth It's a total burnt out husk, but, I _have_ seen worse running low on fuel, and that is so not cool still being 45 light years from Praqul with Everybody looking for me since I left Delta-3 they want what I got, and I don't blame them, it is pretty hot on the sand dunes with no energy left for tunes and you're left to fill a quota picking through the runes I look to the skies I rise, they won't keep me down no more I'm sick of their lies, I despise, their guns their greed, their ignoring my needs, their egos and their wars another show another shave another d'oh oh behave another day that I'm a slave and get charged more than I'm paid but I got it made I got devices to my right for making music all day and night the new one has very pretty lights and I don't have to fight to be free / from labels, 360s OR flashbacks of Bill Bixby you wouldn't like me when I'm angry, but / what/'s to like I can disappear for a light year with this here cloaking device and reappear with machines like you've never seen and sounds that are made out of dreams I look to the skies I rise, they won't keep me down no more I'm sick of their lies, I despise, their guns their greed, their ignoring my needs, their egos and their wars When I give, I give to forget and then forget that I gave so I'm very grateful to get and this is the best day yet / good to be back on a terra firma track adrift in the pitch black countdown to clearing the dark side of this moon half CGI & half cartoon uncovering unwanted sounds and loving them back to life the ones who discarded us never thought twice all I've got to say, some day they're gonna pay I'm sorry. I just can't let it end this way [stop] I look to the skies I rise, they won't keep me down no more I'm sick of their lies, I despise, their guns their greed, their ignoring my needs, their egos and their wars

43. Breakers in Space II When we last left our heroes they were spinnin on their backs the frayed rope unraveled and ultimately snapped but we couldn't find a single soul to care about the snap because there was no gravity to make them fall flat so they could spin forever if they didn't have to pack but 360 times around and that was enough of that you can dolphin for days on end when you don't know where up is at but if you really need to know you go download the faq two b-girls to a crew to keep this show on track and two track suits will probly do to keep eyeballs off the racks it's been an age and a couple of days since we had scrumptious snacks but at least we got some space to break and a bass drum tom tom hat I like how I did that? It's the breakers in space and we're back It's the breakers in space yeah it's ike that! we did a robot dance for Pluto, put a sick windmill on Mars the BTVs packed light that night so we could could all fit in two space cars the mars part was sorta kinda smart it was good for some hardy-hars most of the time I leave it out outdated in this fast paced life of ours that black haired girl up and disappeared by now she'd be pretty far the other is a mother and she's real close. In earshot? Yes, you are. and our daughters they are dancers too so far they are on par my little girl got them dancin genes met her mamma through the dancin arts we eye gazed dance crazed days away and ended up holding hearts what else you gon do when your break dance crew is not that big on bars? Hey hey hey, it's last Saturday come out to play and battle in the stars It's the breakers in space and we're back It's the breakers in space yeah it's ike that! break! I got breakers to the left of me in their freshest break dance clothes breakers to the right sit tight all night freaken on them flows we ain't got time for wastin rhymes on them big-time so-n-sos I got two tablets and a microphones and that's all I need I spoze time to B major on this flavor there's ice where the cold wind blows last I knew that's how the garden grew but I think you misspelled hose you gotta turn a phrase at least three ways to keep these knees on their toes but that's head and shoulders above the erworms everybody knows you tell me is it poetry or just somewhat clever prose tv-screens glow while those bros crow fo' Poe's goPro videos if you didn't bust a move to this here groove well I guess that's how it goes I'll try to hold space with a sound or two before we bring it to a close I like to move it move it! I am having a whole lot of fun right now and I think I know what will make it even better.

44. Get the Feelin Right Let's get the feelin right right I like it the feelin ain't right. Alright we gotta right it If the fire goes out don't pout just relight it if power come around get down we gotta fight it when it's time to cry just cry when they say it's time to lie ask why the lights go on come on don't be shy you ain't got to be able to fly to touch sky don't worry that it's not good enough it's your dance it's all good. Good? Understood are you lookin for the love of your life or a love for a night If the feelin is right then why fight? Let's get the feelin right let's get the feelin, right? When we get the feelin right then we get to feelin right x2 Let's get the feeling right RIGHT Now! Or actually gimme a minute, I'm recieving a transmission. Ow. Ow. Ow! [robot voice] I'm fine. No worries. No headaches, huddles or hurries That camera dome and blinking light are just here to help you with your worries One thing to know about this chip, is that it won't hurt a bit just don't move your hand too fast, you won't accidentally buy things with it now you'll just know where to go to get the goods when you get the chance it'll automatically make more time to squeeze more stress into your plans in this harnass and stiff pants you won't be as inclined to dance we're too serious about immiseration to leave it to happenstance we now return you to your regularly scheduled program already in progress Let's get the feelin right let's get the feelin, right? When we get the feelin right then we get to feelin right x2 Let's get the felin right keep it right you get the feelin just right you feel the funk all night I know why the caged bird can sing music exists just to fix everything I know why all the fools fall y'all love is the answer and why is rhythm smiling? I know. Rhythm's a dancer Why are you smiling is it the change of the season? And I'm a BlooThirsty Vegan so I don't need a reason I was surprised when we locked eyes honey bunch now I know what you like or at least I got a strong hunch some things only music can do and I've come to do those things for you

45. House at the Top of a Tree There's a House at the Top of a Tree there's me there's you now what we gonna do on the cotton candy couch of life there's less strife there's three blind mice and a carving knife and if there's five or more I'm sure we'll all form a line the massage train can't be too far behind it's time to change tracks and never look back and that's the way it is because it's like that and I got a pretty extensive collaction of unflattering pants and I just can't wait to dance here come my chance in the house at the top of the three here's me here's we there's the beat, there's our feet and we advance with no retreat life is sweet, when we got each others' backs for real justice now has mass appeal the tribe is alive with love and good vibes and life is more than just surviving It looks like we finally found some water so I guess we finally aughta do a celabratory dance while we have the chance look at cecil in them hammer pants, show us some moves oooooo nobody wants to see your tentacles welcome to my personal space welcome to my face welcome back to embracing here's what we'll do we'll kick off our shoes, we'll shake off our blues, I'm tellin you we're gonna love like our life depends listen to our lovers, listen to our friends attack each other's troubles one tribe till the end in the house at the top of a tree there's just we

46. Empire The Empire is here and this much is clear we draw power from your fears ain't been THIS powerful in years our imperial oligarchs heard your pleas for peace, and none of em cares sucks to be you, You got a battleship, make our day if you dare Our war exercizes are full of surprises if nobody moves then MAYBE nobody buys it remember us? Badassian empire. Leave no traces. Got a million millitary bases all up in yo faces in some cases, personnel is well behaved and if not 'boys will be boys' we always say we have to forge them into killers and sadly some of em crack at which point it's easier to promote them than try to send them back we got wallop weapons pre-paid that don't come out for another decade BE: we got it made Badassian Empire: We got it made We make the biggest weapons so we stay paid We take your resources like every day we just spread like viruses in every way we can atom smash your puny planet, pulverized at a distance *we don't even tell our people of your people's attempts at peaceful resistance you can say that you don't hate us but that won't even matter our newstation say that you do, so you just chatter but best belive the moment you step the least bit out of line it's a huge headline, look at what the insurgents are doing this time and then we attack you whenever we want with unmanned drones we don't have to get our hands dirty while we smote your hut like homes we just care about money we just care about money we just care about money and we just care about money we just care about money we just care about power derived by controll of money You want power? That's funny The Empire Strikes Back, strikes first, strikes next three strikes and you're out, lights out, cut off at the neck for a moment the slaves thew off some chains and that did upet our rhythm but Now it's perfectly legal again in the new for profit prisons which keeps the trouble makers out of the way so that things can be more quiet whoevers left will just tell on each other if anyone look fit to riot we got a billion ways to divide the many into tiny pockets of few and that's just what we always do and that's just how we've always ruled oh yeah. almost forgot we also care about guns loves muh gun

47. g.e.a. #4 by My rap Name is Alex (prod by DiVinCi of Solilla) green to tha earth to tha al I ain't tried this style in a while I been keepin a really low profile but you can sorta see by the sinister smile I got enough flow to go buckWILD gimmie an an inch and I'll take a pile o miles freestyle? Whatever. I Don't endeavor to be clever I endeavor to get better than I ever was before and don't really ask for more. Score! Your vagabond shoes are longing to stray n that's kinda freakin me out now OKAY??? don't mind me, I'm just tryin to see how much cat yak, landed up in your nap sack BaBow! Wow. me... as shy as I am I was the perfect man to NEVER be in a band but here I am, one day Hey wandered on stage, started my next phase, TRY you'll be amazed suddenly someone says let there be lights and low and behold I am aight on the mic there were a whole lot of lyrics screaming to be said that started tumbaling out of my head I figured better off dead from the fury of the fight than to live on my knees in a life without life Get up! And get right! Don't get caught in their sights Don't fall in the trap. What? You never seen a wookie rap? Well, I don't care about that. I guess you can find art, in the space port mall-mart But you find more heart when someone hums in the car park it's the man's plan to command all channels and stations but we keep inovating greater indie creations so they flex a vexed screw face you know how the rich do they like to lie awake, they prob'ly lie in their sleep too Who know's who's who? What's false and what's true Those that claim that they do they watch too much YouTube useless questions to ponder through the night like how does Mario plumb and keep his gloves all white? The grabbity hands grab all that they can it's zero gravity man, that's really all they can stand so how to proceed? we need to know what to do. Oooo. All I can say is do you it's all about the body and mind wise and diesel in the age of the chimpanzees I was a weasel but I never went pop like the top of the play-dough and Eppo plays a Lido What did I just Say? What DID I just say? Uh hey. I'm gonna duck out the back now but um, ah.... LOOK WHAT'S THAT OVER THERE?!?

48. The Problem With Earthlings The promlem with the Earthings is that they got hooked on the OSEs which led to hyperactivity and hyper halitosis glucose, fructose, sucrose, and whatever if it lead to increased sales they'd spray it on your sweater and wash it down with some chips, yeah chips, chocolate and cheese then lift their heads up to the sky and try to pray away heart disese so now they're hyperactive on top of their hyper-violence And those aren't even the worst ones, the worst are the ones that are silent half paying attention to what happens beyond their homes they claim to be about compassion while real actual children are bombed by drones The problem with the Earthlings and a long history of abuse they won't ever break their cycle, it would hurt the ratings for news Huns, conquistadores, plantation owners, robber barrons, and on the only permissible debate of late is how much MORE to fund their Pentagon The problem with the Earthings is that they worship their GDP they're not allowed to do things that make sense without consulting their economy Cancer alley's and actual place where actual people live Vinyl waste and toxic taste for those not rich enough to give The problem with the Earthlings is is they overtax their minds How'd you expect to have any time left juggling ten deadlines (at a time) they don't know how to ask for help, with even the simplest task they're all isolationists anyway so who would you even ask? The problem with Earthings is they don't know how to say 'I don't know' if they don't know the answer they make up something and then belive that it's so so there are 7 billion perceptions and each one of them is right and if you ever disagree you'll see they're given to fight The problem with the Earthlings is when they do agree you can't argue with absolute nonsense if they've labeled it history a continuing cycle of misinformation that must be maintained somehow it didn't happen at all this way but Hey it's tradition now The problem with the Earthlings is that lying can be a trade just get a degree in lying skillfully and then you've got it made Hill & knowlton & Young & Rubicam and all those PR guys reep millions of billions of profit points learning to market your lies

49. There is No Time Every day the empire got more guns there ain't no time to wait Every day the banksters got more funds there ain't no time to wait Every day they forclosed on more of our homes there ain't no time to wait Every day they got a few more camera domes there ain't no time to wait There ain't no time to wait we gotta take it to em There ain't no time to wait There ain't no time to wait we gotta take it to em There ain't no time to wait they got us fighting one another there ain't no time to wait they got ruining our Delta mother there ain't no time to wait The yaxorbacks are going extinct there ain't no time to wait and the senate don't care what you think there ain't no time to wait There ain't no time to wait we gotta take it to em There ain't no time to wait There ain't no time to wait we gotta take it to em There ain't no time to wait the people still left fighting are gettin lonely there ain't no time to wait That robot right there is snitchin on me there ain't no time to wait seriously There ain't no time to wait we gotta take it to em There ain't no time to wait There ain't no time to wait we gotta take it to em There ain't no time to wait this galaxy is full of screens and they work like a dream inceasant self-serving soft sell for soft serve ice cream like a true natures child we were born to be wild and all this plastic in piles is really crampin our styles and all these changes out here, in our atmosphere will be a feedback loop load on a road to nowhere war is over if you want it but not if you you don't care we fail to care and Raytheon just keeps increasing it's share price, Aw. Isn't that nice. Killin time with the merchants of death like life's a game Man this whole system is a scam and a sham and a shame Who's to blame? Who cares? Who's for change? Who dares? to believe that we have the power if we refuse to cower It's long past since there was time to sit the fence evil is everywhere you either care or you don't care but There ain't no time to wait we gotta take it to em There ain't no time

50. Get Up Right Now I really think the war on terror is a bunch of horse junk that's why I'm takin politics and mixing it with space funk we're all human family from Pittsburgh to Pakistan a drone attack is SO whack that should be plain as day m'man and I'm sick of the war machine and sick of all the wars sick of seeing youth sent back to do another tour sick of private prisons, and violent police who should pay for these abominations, dude don't look at me because brother I ain't GOT a dirty dime that you can borrow You think life's unfair today? Wait'll'ya see tommorow It's really feelin 11th hour / In this media shower the world's been waiting for YOU / to / come back into your power somehow some way this great melting pot / got to 90% hypocracy and 10% democracy we got a party to screw you fast a party to screw you slow just to insho' you're screwed whichever way you go they claim represent the people? So then tell me what's the reason they look at the people and see treason? the imperial senate will not sit still they'll get ill but don't bother bout that we can get up still Get up, gotta get up, gotta get on up gotta get up don't stop, rising to the top lift yo head up so high that you know up's the only way we can go Gotta get up right now! Gotta get up right now! I don't like to talk I'm gonnas, I much prefer I dids like I did on the daily help to raise up awesome kids and I learned a lot of things, and I live a lot of life and saved some of my best for my daughter and my wife common law any way, they take me to a brighter day doing right by your family's great for your mental state every day I feel we are raising such a diamond daughter that it seems like me and Sophie deserve some sort of trophy so help me Bela Bee be y'may be be my only hope but not for sharing days with you I dunno how I'd cope that's why I'm so selective, with what we get into time wasted on uselessness could be time with you and I'm not gonna lie yo, I don't got a lotta time I might not make it to your meeting but I made it to these rhymes if you're gonna have a meeting is it gonna make sense are you gonna make change or you gonna make rent? we letting infiltrator agitators hijack the show or are we gonna say no and find a new way to go and I ain't tryin'a get arrested, you can if that's your deal but me and my bank account can't take that hit for real so I set sights on what can do, and do it when I can ain't nobody gotta tell me that it's time to fight the man youngins don't fret about the future, if you ain't gon lift a finger You can't have the eye of the tiger AND pray to Bob Iger or Xbox or pewdiepie not tryin to tell you what to like but time spent on distractions does detract from time for action there's a real world out here that needs you up in it fully present, mad creative and in it to win it we all have got to get on up Get up, gotta get up, gotta get on up gotta get up, don't stop, rising to the top lift yo head up so high that you know up's the only way we can go Gotta get up right now! Gotta get up right now!
