From Chaos Lyrics
  • You Get Worked
    Music: N. Hexum, C. Sexton; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    This is happening this here is life
    Days spent pondering truth is a knife
    Respect due to those who have caught it
    Dedicated to our friends who have sought it

    This is happening this here is life
    Days spent pondering truth is a knife
    Respect due to those who have caught it
    Dedicated to our friends who have sought it

    Brainstorm superseding the norm
    When we come together new planet is born
    You revel in the chaos when people are torn
    Then you come to find out your welcome is worn

    We are advancing and retracting visionaries
    Really here it’s not imaginary
    The way you work your mind you find it’s an art
    Where you feel it most you feel in your heart

    Everybody gets confused
    Delusions are everywhere
    Buy into fakeness you’ll feel used
    Double talk fills the air
    Looking all over for happiness
    I’ve got the will to live
    It’s in front of you right now don’t you feel stressed
    Falls through my hands like a sieve

    I’m on a new high
    with a pen and a pad
    And for fun I attend
    a jam that’s super bad
    At the same time
    give it all that I have
    Whether you’re square
    or the coolest lad
    Eatin up my people
    purgin their words
    The jammies take flight like Icarus birds
    Drop on you and you get hurt
    Cuz if you’re under the rock
    You get worked

    Say, what gives are you after me
    Breakin me down won’t you let me be
    Won’t be having none of your mind control
    It ain’t gonna work on me no more
    I said, what gives are you after me
    Breakin me down won’t you let me be
    Won’t be having none of your mind control
    It ain’t gonna work on me no more

    You get worked

    If you don’t watch your back
    People are scheming on you
    Exploiting all the things you lack
    They’ll do what they have to do
    Your good will is something they’ll crack
    How many times will they bust
    Your originality they will hack
    Don’t know just who you can trust

    I’m on a new high
    with a pen and a pad
    And for fun I attend
    a jam that’s super bad
    At the same time
    give it all that I have
    Whether you’re square
    or the coolest lad
    Eatin up my people
    purgin their words
    The jammies take flight like Icarus birds
    Drop on you and you get hurt
    Cuz if you’re under the rock

    You get worked
    Yeah you get worked
    Say, what gives are you after me
    Breakin me down won’t you let me be
    Won’t be having none of your mind control
    It ain’t gonna work on me no more
    You get worked


    Sick Tight
    Music: N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    Head rush
    Come on, we take the stage
    And what’s up, it’s on
    This is a blow up
    So just listen up
    Just take your mouth off interrupt
    We came to throw down
    It’s a showdown
    And you know why, we never lie
    Get the lowdown son
    We’re mashin and bashin
    The stage we’re crashin
    If you’re on the roof
    I know you’re dancin
    I bet we get the people jumpin overseas
    And I know why you’re bustin mp3’s
    The shit shit shocker
    The hiphop rocker
    Wiser than Baraka
    Stronger than Chewbacca
    KISS never did this nor Ozzy Ozbourne
    Shakin that ass and shakin your firstborn
    Back to the future and past to the front
    We appear like adrenaline it’s just that blunt

    Two score and five we came alive
    A minor blow up has started
    A song for the newly sane and
    The broken hearted

    Head rush
    Come on, we take the stage
    And what’s up, it’s on
    From midnight til daylight
    You best believe that we’re sick tight
    You’re cryin’ bout your life
    I think it’s absurd
    What could be so bad
    You come from the suburbs
    Just like me
    But I could never despair
    Most people in this world
    Ain’t got shit to spare
    Suckas look up to thugs
    They like the attitude
    But fuck that
    I’m talkin’ gratitude
    They harder they act
    Just to hide their insecurity
    I’m talking honestly
    We are assuredly
    Dope, I smoke it
    But not everyday
    Cuz anything all the time’s
    A drag I say
    Three eleven you want to get next to them
    My name’s Nick H, E, X, U, M

    Two score and five we came alive
    A minor blow up has started
    A song for the newly sane and
    The broken hearted
    We keep an eye for each other then again
    Our known associates endure
    We make a sick tight connection when we
    See our true people on tour

    Head rush
    Keep it going now
    You know we get it right
    We keep it flowing now
    We’re sick tight

    We keep an eye for each other then again
    Our known associates endure
    We make a sick tight connection when we
    See our true people on tour

    Head rush
    Keep it going now
    You know we get it right
    We keep it flowing now
    We’re sick tight


    You Wouldn’t Believe
    Music: N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    He was a king ’til she laid waste
    Now he can not fill up the space
    And I just see him drifting
    While he’s drifting
    On bourbon alley, feeling low
    Just because she let him go
    I don’t think he even knows
    He’ll never be fine

    And he’s got a head full of ideas
    Let me tell ya, that you wouldn’t believe
    And he’s got a heart made of pure gold
    And something else, many tricks up his sleeve
    You might think he’s a jester
    Because he’ll make you laugh til’ you cry
    And what else, you better come with your best
    If you test him, unless you’re ready to die

    Wonder woman got rid of wonder man
    That man’s not part of her wonder plan
    Letter to the so called better bet on my man
    Believe it you will find out baby, damn

    Head full of ideas
    Let me tell ya, that you wouldn’t believe
    And he’s got a heart made of pure gold
    And something else, so many tricks up his sleeve
    You might think he’s a jester
    Because he’ll make you laugh til’ you cry
    And what else, you better come with your best
    If you test him, unless you’re ready to die

    A million people come and go
    Through a person’s ebb and flow
    And faces keep on changing
    While there changing
    A certain few will stay in tact
    When they’re not they’ll don an act
    I know this important fact
    Don’t get confused like

    And he’s got a head full of ideas
    Let me tell ya, that you wouldn’t believe
    And he’s got a heart made of pure gold
    And something else, so many tricks up his sleeve
    You might think he’s a jester
    Because he’ll make you laugh til’ you cry
    And what else, you better come with your best
    If you test him, unless you’re ready to die

    First you love him then your loving him not
    All the while he just smiles, giving all that he’s got
    Do you find it in your heart to say he’s not what you sought
    Do you want me to continue with this, or what

    Whoa yeah
    Whoa yeah

    Head full of ideas
    Let me tell ya, that you wouldn’t believe
    And he’s got a heart made of pure gold
    And something else, so many tricks up his sleeve
    Sleeve, sleeve


    Full Ride
    Music: C. Sexton; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    Awww shit
    What, unh
    You know the freaks can’t handle it
    We keep on searching from the seaside
    To the mountainside, come on
    Hardly outstyled and hardly outblazened
    Nectar natural, completely amazing
    Others more concerned with just fronting on hardness
    I flow sweet with millennium niceness
    I don’t know if they’re just scared or what
    But a little sincerity would knock them on their butt
    I keep my dogs at my side and I keep my shit tight
    Let me tell you how I feel, all right

    Y’all’s radio rock ain’t tuff
    Can’t move to that ain’t deep enough
    One more time groove on the line
    Chill’s up my spine, ready, rewind

    The only thing that never gets old is honesty
    You’ll probably be caught up fronting
    The only thing you always try to be is hard
    Because you’re scared that someone might pull your card
    The only thing that never gets played out
    Is melody, I’m hearing it calling me
    It’s plain to see because it’s all laid out

    Full ride, I’m a master of technology
    Livin’ my life nice in pursuit of groove-ology
    I’m getting vibes like you checking me out
    Without a doubt I pull clout and crush crews in a rout
    I’m a Doberman in any given reaction
    Well-mannered and reserved, yet ready for action
    I let you have it all, I got nothin to hide
    I tell ya how we comin’, we comin’ full ride
    Full ride we work it on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct
    While others just run and hide
    Full ride we work it on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct, unh

    I get fucked up rockin the jams, I bump disco
    Playin’ records all day I then let go
    I’m the king of my town
    But when my girl is around
    Parlay like the Count of Monte Cristo
    So simple the jams are in front of me
    Get drunk in New York, makin’ fun of me
    When we play it’s a serous thing
    To all the people who gather
    Here’s what we bring

    The only thing that never gets old is honesty
    You’ll probably be caught up fronting
    The only thing you always try to be is hard
    Because you’re scared that someone might pull your card
    The only thing that never gets played out
    Is melody, I’m hearing it calling me
    It’s plain to see because it’s all laid out

    Yeah, yeah, what
    Full ride we work in on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct
    While others just run and hide
    full ride, we work in on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct

    Yes, yes, full ride we work in on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct
    While others just run and hide
    full ride, we work in on the inside
    As you’d expect we come correct, unh


    From Chaos
    Music: N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    From chaos comes clarity, I tell ya
    What you appear to be, you ought to know
    Glycerin tears don’t fool me, I tell ya
    Delusions plaguing everybody
    Makin that hybrid music back in ’90 now it’s on ya

    I hear we we’re the model for the band you front we spawned ya
    finding it hard to come original we warned ya
    we’re shakin the white boys in New York black girls in California
    we come through hip-hop drum-n-bass and dancehall rhythms
    you want our beats and lyrics you want to get them
    watchin you sink into the depths of opportunism
    missing the point music’s about love not pessimism
    I’m SA moving supreme and on my team
    I rock the mic with a sweet lean
    and you know that stated as a fact
    the only DJ MC gettin’ down like that
    Metaphorically we are the chief of police you’re rock n roll
    and we’re positive you stole more than just the radio
    now it’s 2 1 and we are back in control
    the jammies are coming, people succumbing cuz we got the soul

    Everyone tends to forget upon reentry
    Orbiting space quantum saints we’re the only
    Beginning from a planet so naturally
    Gifted in the heart lies our technology
    It’s only right, right
    Entering in a space of pure delight, light
    Next contestant on this jam is, tight
    Feels spontaneous you’ll improvise, vise

    From chaos comes clarity, I tell ya
    What you appear to be, you ought to know
    Glycerin tears don’t fool me, I tell ya
    Delusions plaguing everybody

    Don’t even try it, you don’t want to disrespect me
    If dealing with punks was school I’d have a Harvard degree
    You can’t make me hate you no matter how punk you act
    No matter what you do I don’t react
    I’m a perfect example of not giving a fuck
    About the catty rude people that just suck
    What do you know all of the sudden, ah I usurp you
    Look it up in the dictionary to find out what I do
    I go back to the style I came from
    It’s not something you can fake son
    You’re a con man who’s run is done
    You lead a world wide web of deception

    Everyone tends to forget upon reentry
    Orbiting space quantum saints we’re the only
    Beginning from a planet so naturally
    Gifted in the heart lies our technology
    It’s only right, right
    Entering in a space of pure delight, light
    Next contestant on this jam is, tight
    Feels spontaneous you’ll improvise, vise

    From chaos comes clarity, I tell ya
    What you appear to be, you ought to know
    Glycerin tears don’t fool me, I tell ya
    Delusions plaguing everybody


    I Told Myself
    Music: C. Sexton, N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    Picked up on the wrong scent
    Not gonna make a dent
    How many times
    Are you in my rhymes
    Burn me once shame on thee
    Burn me again shame on me
    I’m chasing and facing
    the point misplacing
    When I think of you my minds racing
    I’m spacing out when I get to the point of no return
    I get burned
    I told myself I’m through with you
    The last thing that I’ll ever do
    Let down my guard shouldn’t be too hard
    I know it’s over got to elevate, disregard

    I can’t believe I fell for it, but did it again
    I told myself I’m gonna quit, but did it again
    I can’t believe I fell for it, but did it again
    I told myself I’m gonna quit, but

    This was supposed to be the last time I told myself
    This wouldn’t happen again I told myself
    I wasn’t ever going to call you I told myself
    I wouldn’t let you back in, but here I am dialing, trying

    I told myself to get a hold myself
    I won’t freak out, let you tweak out
    On ecstasy, it’s not next to me
    Let me tell you baby girl that you’re testin’ me
    I told myself to get a hold myself
    and I’m tryin, I’m not lyin
    Don’t make me mad, you know I love you bad
    I want to sniff the glue that holds me to you
    I told myself to get a hold myself
    But don’t rush me, can’t you trust me
    The sound I hear whenever you are near
    I know it’s never wrong and it’s my favorite song

    I can’t believe I fell for it, but did it again
    I told myself I’m gonna quit, but did it again
    I can’t believe I fell for it, but did it again
    I told myself I’m gonna quit, but

    This was supposed to be the last time I told myself
    This wouldn’t happen again I told myself
    I wasn’t ever going to call you I told myself
    I wouldn’t let you back in, but here I am dialing, trying

    And now it’s all turned bad
    Turned bad, turned bad
    Your ploy to make me jealous is obvious and sad
    It has the opposite effect
    Now you’re left with what you had, what you had

    The rain comes down as love turns to dust
    I was joking, she took me serious
    The rain comes down as love turns to dust
    I was joking, she took me serious
    Yes serious
    This was the last time that I was ever going to call you
    I told myself I wouldn’t let you back in
    But here I am dialing, trying


    Champagne
    Music: N. Hexum, T. Mahoney; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    I will never understand you
    When will I stop trying
    I mean, cuz it’s just not how I planned to
    Spend my time til’ dying, I mean

    Champagne
    California on the brain
    She’s got an appetite for no refrains
    Just verses, she curses as blood vessels burst in defiance
    She made an alliance to the dark side of Hollywood
    Where everything looks good
    So I treat her as any other player would
    Lightly, then she wants to fight me
    Too bad, that’s just too bad
    I can’t be around to pick up your bags and your debts
    She wants to love me with threats
    Not taking chances, I’m hedging my bets
    With other girls I’m not providing pearls
    I’m free, free

    I will never understand you
    When will I stop trying
    I mean, cuz it’s just not how I planned to
    Spend my time til’ dying
    I mean

    I know loving me isn’t easy
    I’m home and next thing I’m leaving
    But when I look at you it’s like praying with my eyes
    I follow you to sleep so I will find
    Your dream place and hey, I’m not an angel
    But girl you make me feel like I know one, one

    Champagne
    California on the brain
    She’s got an appetite for no refrains
    Just verses, she curses as blood vessels burst in defiance
    She made an alliance to the dark side of Hollywood
    Where everything looks so good
    So I treat her as any other sucker would
    Tightly, then she wants to fight me
    Too bad, that’s just too bad
    I can’t be around to pick up your bags and your debts
    She wants to love me with threats
    I’m not taking chances, I’m hedging with my bets
    With other girls I’m not providing pearls
    I’m free, free
    Never understand


    Hostile Apostle
    Music: N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    I can’t free myself of the suspicion
    For your motives on your mission
    Some people live for the rules
    I live for exceptions
    Can’t take part in the deception
    But I know just how it feels
    To wanna blow the world away
    Just to get to what is real

    It won’t work cuz
    Everybody grinds to a halt now and then
    Everybody’s game gets salt then again
    No matter what the papers say they’re normal as they come
    Bodyguards, ball of wax, they hide behind the gun
    They get a panic pulse when they are so far from home
    To me that is the reason to continue to roam
    Exhilaration mix with the people skunk blazing
    Checking out the shows that are sadly unamazing

    Hostile Apostle who you following
    Negative energy that you’re swallowing
    Some coked out malcontent
    Who’s soul is up for rent
    Victim of lost soul Hostile Apostle

    Unlimited in time and space and nearest universal
    Light is what we’re reachin for it’s not rehearsal
    Follow this around follow this hustle
    Makin use of everything movin all your muscle

    Angry human leads impressionable boy
    To skulls and piercings and will to destroy
    All of your heroes speak nothing to me
    One emotion one tempo and no real feeling

    In this field we are the presence of the thoughts you’re missin
    Keepin positive’s intact from all the people dissin
    Open your eyes look at who you’re kissin
    If you can’t hear it people just listen

    Hostile Apostle who you following
    Negative energy that you’re swallowing
    Some coked out malcontent
    Who’s soul is up for rent
    Victim of lost soul Hostile Apostle

    Angry human leads impressionable boy
    To skulls and piercings and will to destroy
    All of your heroes speak nothing to me
    You don’t have to be a prick just to be heavy

    Changin’ all the time we changin all the same
    Change in this life and this eternal frame
    Warm in the sun refresh in the breeze
    Glow in the stars blossom in the trees
    Livin through life in infinite extent
    Spread undivided operate unspent
    No high no low no great and no small
    Build and bound connect and equal all


    Wake Your Mind Up
    Music: C. Sexton, A Wills; Lyrics: N. Hexum, Will Adams, Tre Hardson

    Wake your mind up clear your eyes up
    Move and rise up before your times up
    Clock is ticking your caught slippin
    Stop to realize look and listen

    Well I guess that’s life when you see a dark road up the way
    And I guess that’s life when you gotta roll through anyway
    Now don’t scream don’t fight fear never ever made it go away
    Same ghost town as yesterday
    Made you feel like love was miles away

    Wake your mind up clear your eyes up
    Move and rise up before your times up
    Clock is ticking you’re caught slippin
    Stop to realize look and listen

    Now those sleepless nights thoughts just cloud up my brain
    Feeling helpless repeating the same old memories of pain and
    I wish it would rain, yo
    Gimme starlit skies for dreamland
    I know it’s really smaller than it seems but when
    The pressure gets under my skin
    I just wanna get out and scream in the wind yo.

    The world were livin’ in is complicated
    The streets that we walk on are dark and jaded
    A wandering soul that’s filled with hatred
    In it is poison the youth is tainted
    Social engineering keeps us separated
    Media control is highly over rated
    Ignorance is bliss to those uneducated
    Listen to the message cuz it’s time we faced it

    Wake your mind up clear your eyes up
    Move and rise up before your times up
    Clock is ticking you’re caught slippin
    Stop to realize look and listen

    I’m controller of my destination
    Gotta change my mind to help me break away
    The sun creeps over the hillside to shed this light
    No man could take away
    I guess that’s life you see a new side from the norm
    A new direction and meaning to the form
    And the calm in the eye of a storm, yo
    Show me a desert that can never be drenched
    I’ll show you a thirst that can never be quenched
    Temptation chronicles, the story of my life
    Been spent on a dose of balancing strife
    Inspiration it comes and goes
    You can bet when it hits I’m on the phone
    Singing to my voice mail trying to get it down
    In a sensation of shape shifting sound

    You’re telling fables to cover up your foibles
    From over indulgence on things you find enjoyable
    Designed to take my mind away from truth
    Try to make me out to play the sleuth
    They want you to think someone’s watching you
    So they can make up a set of rules for you
    I’m just trying to find a path that I can stomach
    Just trying to make some sense out from it
    Don’t stop don’t stop what you got
    Don’t stop til you find the sweet spot

    Wake your mind up clear your eyes up
    Move and rise up before your times up
    Clock is ticking your caught slippin
    Stop to realize look and listen


    Amber
    Music: N. Hexum; Lyrics: N. Hexum

    Brainstorm
    Take me away from the norm
    I got to tell you something
    This phenomenon
    I had to put it in a song
    And it goes like

    Whoa amber is the color of your energy
    Whoa shades of gold displayed naturally

    You ought to know what brings me here
    You glide through my head blind to fear and I know why

    Whoa amber is the color of your energy
    Whoa shades of gold displayed naturally
    Whoa amber is the color of your energy
    Whoa shades of gold displayed naturally

    You live too far away
    Your voice rings like a bell anyway
    Don’t give up your independence
    Unless it feels so right
    Nothing good comes easily
    Sometimes you gotta fight

    Whoa amber is the color of your energy
    Whoa shades of gold displayed naturally
    Launched a thousand ships in my heart so easy
    Still it’s fine from afar and you know that

    Whoa brainstorm take me away from the norm
    Whoa I got to tell you something


    Uncalm
    Music: N. Hexum, T. Mahoney; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    Listen to the drummer just listen to the strings
    Listen to the DJ just rappin and things
    Once I get a message from you I get all edgy
    My minds racing but my you know not ready uh

    For you, baby all our dreams trickle through
    We are back in your teenage bedroom
    Salvador Dali honeymoon for you

    It’s like you and me on Plymouth Rock
    Embarking on a journey that I never thought
    would happen to me so effortlessly
    sparks flying, your laughter is a symphony
    Spring, what a little moonlight can do
    Soon the summer sun is on you
    All the while we don’t hear the news or feel blue

    On the scales of desire your absence weighs
    more than someone else’s presence
    I wanna kiss reason goodbye today
    I wanna show its purple essence
    On your lips baby it’ll fade away
    return your natural iridescence
    On the scales of desire your absence weighs
    more than someone else’s presence

    You make me feel uncalm and I think I like it
    Make me think of a song that I could not write yet
    Melodies create themselves I’m just a conduit
    You make my heart accelerate and I’m on to it
    For you baby there’s so much that I will do
    to be near the sweetness on you
    Funny everything seems so new when with you

    On the scales of desire your absence weighs
    more than someone else’s presence
    I wanna kiss reason goodbye today
    I wanna show its purple essence
    On your lips baby it’ll fade away
    return your natural iridescence
    On the scales of desire your absence weighs
    more than someone else’s presence
    Uncalm


    I’ll Be Here Awhile
    Music: N. Hexum, D. Martinez; Lyrics: N. Hexum, D. Martinez

    I’ll be here awhile ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile

    Far is solace in the maddening pace
    Sad state written on my face
    Not a tight rope walk but dance
    Uncertain game of chance
    But I’ll see it through in time

    I’ll be here awhile ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile

    And if a person place or thing can deliver
    I will quiver with delight
    Tempted by the hand that could
    Blind my vision and sight
    But at twenty years of age
    In frolic and in rage
    I will see it through in time

    I’ll be here awhile ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile ain’t going nowhere
    I’ll be here awhile

    But the dawn has come into the endless night
    And everything’s going to be all right
    But at thirty years of age
    Through frolic and in rage
    All regressed and healed in time

    I’ll be here awhile ain’t going nowhere
    Said I, said I, said I
    I will survive
