Track Name: Intro (Sunlight)
"I'm sorry but I don't want to be an Emperor, that's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate; has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.

We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in: machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little: More than machinery we need humanity; More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all.

Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me I say "Do not despair". The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress: the hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die [now] liberty will never perish…"

Excerpt of speech from Charlie Chaplin's 'The Great Dictator'
Track Name: Investment
Yo I'm investing in the moving of feet and head nods, 
Finger snapping and ya feet tap-tapping
Make a blood vessel bust when the kid start rappin,

Mixing the math and meditation with the scripture,
But never too much, just enough to make they head bust 
When they download, unpack and play it from the richter
Swingin' at the devil but the blade barely nicked em,

Stop in a local village, asking where the town be,
Reading on the way to town quoting Yerushalmi
Don't gotta crew a masked goons all around me, a pocket fulla pennies and a buffalo nickel, 

Dreaming of cars and cream is so fickle
The TV turning tater-tot babies into potato heads (Huh?), pickle juice for they brains cuz they Tivo'ing the game
But don't know from whence they came from.. They saying damn Ezzie lame but he ain't dumb

"And you can think it's cost-free, you can think there's no price to be paid, than it's easy to slide back into conformity, complacency, and that goes hand-in-hand with our market-driven narcissistic hedonistic society; with more and more people concerned just about "getting over" as opposed to being a better, more decent, compassionate human being." 

- Professor Cornel West


Verse Two

I gotta steel jaw and got eyes fulla fire,
Working and I'm sowing and I'm sowing SO I'm reaping cause providing for the fam is the true man's desire,

The most higher, laid it on my heart
Grab a bright red torch 
Find the demons in the dark,

Listen to the wise, but beat cha own path and remember that the one that cries first laughs last,
Build up the kids legs strong like the pyramids
Not like an eleven, make em' strong like the pyramids,

Yamasaki had a plan man I know he did
But wind and rain ain't the same as a plane being flown by man on a mission from the Taliban,
Ya'll ain't gotta listen to me I'm just gallivant-ting,

From place to place, tryna represent the people be a credit to my race
Gotta well of joy in my chest man,
We gotta invest man..

"You have to be committed to truth. You're not committed to just being well-adjusted to the narrow sensibilities or sentiments of your audience. You want to uplift your audience, you want to be able to, challenge your audience as well as entertain. You wanna delight and instruct at the same time; the very thing you've been doing for nearly five years in your love and service to the public though brother you wanna, unsettle your audience and at the same time you want to delight, you know you wanna keep a little smile on their face as they wrestle with some deep issues."

- Professor Cornel West
Track Name: The Breaks
Ezzie Bizzle the freed slave,
Taxin' these rap cats like meter maids
The DJs say gimme the cash up front or else you gets no service,
No face-time or airplay,

They runnin biz like a cellular prepay-no matter,

I spit that sick ill shit to thrill you,
Teach you, then I get shy holla bye
Hop a plane to meditate on the mountains of Machu Pichu,
Splittin' room fees wit my doppelgänger
(look it up)

Don't wanna war wit' the Khan silly Mongols,
I beat the bass while you pitter-patter bongos,

Betta' act like you know kid
I got the flow kid,
Typa nigga that'll gas a dude up,
Set em' off and then show em' the BREAKS like Curtis BLOW did

Chorus

GRAVITY, is on, THE BREAKS
Prosthetik family, we on, THE WAY
Ezzie Bizzle DGB, is on, THE BREAKS (breaks..)

GRAVITY, is on, THE BREAKS
Prosthetik family, we on, THE WAY
Ezzie Bizzle DGB, is on, THE BREAKS (breaks..)


Verse Two

DGB be the reason the speakers is goin' boom bitch
Tweakin' on my people, you geeks'll be leavin' toothless
Ruthless,
I ruin the booth and I leave it useless
Prosthetik's the Regiment Gravity's the Movement

(smooth shit)

The instrumental is a pendulum, swingin' and
Bringin' the lyrics to fruition the revolution
(of rappers and producers)
Who'd rather hear static
than another inadequate maggot
who babbles just like a doofus

Them niggas is fictitious they spittin' ignorant nonsense
Our lyrics are delicious, solicit diligent bomb shit
DGB and Bizzle the illest without a contract
Sicker vision than a nigga with Syphilis contact

Chorus

GRAVITY, is on, THE BREAKS
Prosthetik family, we on, THE WAY
Ezzie Bizzle DGB, is on, THE BREAKS (breaks..)

GRAVITY, is on, THE BREAKS
Prosthetik family, we on, THE WAY
Ezzie Bizzle DGB, is on, THE BREAKS (breaks..)
Track Name: Fly Away
Listen up,

I made some bad decisions,
And I could blame it on my youth,
my environment, leadership
or just shitty vision,

But I'm a life liver,
And I'ma live until my LIGHT stops being distributed by the LIGHT-giver

Real war VETERUN,
Wish I was a BETTA SUN
Born a black Jedi but I'll probably die a PEDAWUN,

I put the pen to paper
Then dare the devil to cross
The line I drew at the equator
Wit my light saber,

I throw the backpack on,
And hit the road
They lookin' for me
Homie askin' "Is his backpack gone?"

Yup,

I hit the road while y'all was sleeping through the sunrise,
Purple/yellow/violets, never know what colors you GON' see
When taking a moment and staring up into the early morning sunrise,
Into my sun's eyes,

I take a puff and inhale the clean clear kush air,
I'm on my way-I'm on my way yup gone..

Chorus

And so they say,
Live today because tomorrow ain't promised
That's the reason why I rhyme this way
So I can fly away

And so they say,
Live today because tomorrow ain't promised
That's the reason why I rhyme this way
So I can fly away

Verse Two

I been a loner for as long I remember,
Walking on my toes wit a pocket fulla woes
Gotta smile like summer and a heart like winter
Colder than the day whence I was born in November

Blood kept me covered but the thugs stayed around em',
City school, rec center, street corner crowdin',
Sheets of the Talmud, stuffed in a three-ring binder
Next to old math homework and Valium,

It's hard to swallow when your heart's fulla sorrow
And you busy chokin' yesteryear's tears back tomorrow,
Then I found music and I swore it was my niche,
tryna ditch a batch of memories that always seem to follow,

Pity to wallow in? No thank you I'm a veteran,
Pressure on my brain but ain't poppin' no excederine
I take a puff and inhale the clean clear kush air,
I'm on my way-I'm on my way yup gone..

Chorus

And so they say,
Live today because tomorrow ain't promised
That's the reason why I rhyme this way
So I can fly away

And so they say,
Live today because tomorrow ain't promised
That's the reason why I rhyme this way
So I can fly away
Track Name: Get Ready
If you scared say you scared go to church NICCA
Arm-wrestling lucifer for the earth NICCA
Ezzie Bizzle the Sage I'm spittin' fire turning speakers to slaves
And stuffing demons in the dirt NICCA,

24 and gotta heart full ruckus
Chicken George neva pluck us
Yeah you fuckin' wit the dream team,

Young black Nat Turner in a era when
When the people fixated on fast cars and big figgas
Believe the man gotta plan peep game cousin,
Set the game on fire I'm the flame cousin,

Things'll never be the same that's my aim cousin,
I'm shakin' shackles from your hands and your brains cousin,
Cracking atoms wit the knowledge I'm acquiring,
Fuck the the LAWS OF GRAVITY I'm defying em'

Flying high in the sky wit Orion and nem
Dippin' in the big dipper, yup, GONE

(Cuts and Breaks)


Verse Two

The stars align for you today, now thats a horoscope
Got a father had a son where's the holy ghost,
Caught the spirit yeah, I don't mean to holy boast
Said my prayers for breakfast eatin' holy toast

Got say it man the truth is outdated
Need a unified nation man FUCK reparations,
Think it's funny well FUCK you dunny
While you hustle for the weight we hustle for the education,

Everybody gotta beat they own path
Build a scope like Curruthers
And find moons and craters, nah

We gotta do what we gotta to get the bread up,
Tryna talk my head up,
And gas me like my jewish fam

And I don't know about you
But dawg I'm fed up,
I'm tryna hold my head up
while belzeebub rules the land,

It's kinda hard to fight depression and the competition
When your local grand dragon's now a politician

(Cuts and Breaks)


Verse Three

I got this Rap-shit it's buried in my fuckin' core
You a newbie bitch and I'm a fuckin' dinosaur
Cause I see more than fast cars and fast whores
I'm talkin' signs and co-signs and metaphors

I'm talkin' watchin' the world's laxed reaction
When Japan's nuclear reactors started reactin'
I'm talkin' all the shitty preachers in the pulpit
Make a building fund just to rock the new shit

Tellin' people yeah pay ya tithes go to heaven
And don't forget to burn Korans it's for 9-11

I'm talkin' bout the fuckin' light that they sit us in
The fit to fight, the young black citizen
They only satisfied to crackheads we willin' em
Strappin' brothers in the hot chair killin' em

(Cuts and Breaks)

And rock to the funky beat
