Damn
Music: Hexum; Lyrics: Hexum

[Nicks intro]
Look, we’re having the cosmic weekend
if you see us you know that we’re deep in the
rhyme good time high five you gotta thrive
check it out
yo, don’t pout
Alright, alright, now we can do this
Cuz we ain’t new to this
plus we ain’t no nudist buddhist named Brutus(?)

Yo, word up, I’m talkin’ to you
Makin’ dope rhymes that’s what I do
Like a madman, you know I’m bad, man
I slam, a good goddamn

Well I’ve been burned so goddamn badly
I could just sit and sing the blues
But instead I’ll make a fist, yeah
And make my own bad news yeah

Take my advice
You’ll pay the price
Make it funky like this
A good God
Damn

Yo, what else is dissin’ me
That’s right, it’s pissin’ me off
Rock me baby? What?!
You don’t mean that crap
What the hell, if it sells
Damn, you’re a sham,
No thank you, ma’am
Bitch

Oh, I’ve been burned badly
I could just sit and sing the blues
But instead I’ll make a fist, yeah
And make my own good news, yeah

Take my advice
You’ll pay the price
Make it funky like this
Good goddamn
I tell you what
Alles klar?
Uh

This Too Shall Pass
Music: Hexum; Lyrics: Hexum

I don’t jones for nothing
Cause that’s a waste
Waste of space in my frontal lobe and
I just sit, deal with it, don’t have a fit
Do you know what I’m sayin?
I just get as down as I can
Don’t look to relief from a troubled young man
Just take a piece
Sometimes it sucks

Oh I’m not too sure if I can do this on my own guys
Like I’m thinking maybe we should form a support group
Or perhaps a church-sponsored youth group

Oh and then and then I say
I looked the other way
I changed my point of view
And here’s what I do
One time, fuck it up

This too shall pass
This too shall pass
This too shall pass
This…
All the good times, all the bad times
Face it bro, they all will pass

Your problems will seem inconsequential and trivial
When you realize one thing
We’re just a speck of dirt on this golf ball called Earth
So get stupid and sing
And then I feel stupid for even saying it in the first place
Cause this ain’t no woosies anonymous, right Chad?
That’s right! (Chad)
Chad says no
So, fuck it up

Oh, and then and then I see
I looked the other way
I changed my point of view
And here’s what I do

This song is passed
So put that in your pipe and smoke it

Peaceful Revolution
Music: Hexum; Lyrics: Hexum

It’s good to be alive in the peaceful revolution
An honor to observe the beautiful solution
I tip my hat to we the people in order to form a more perfect world
This shall come to pass

The beginning of the end
Of the ignorance that once could sin
The tyrant to power
His day is done
In the worldwide revolution
Yeah, the peaceful revolution

All around this small world
Now the people demand to listen
These truths self-evident
Philosophical evolution
As the old die out
The young see a better way
Human rights guaranteed to all
Without regard to race, I say

The beginning of the end
Now the people vote, we will not sin
The tyrant to power
His day is done
In the worldwide revolution
In the peaceful revolution

I see the last frontier and the peaceful revolution
World peace is merely the product of social evolution
The conquest lies in accepting different peoples
And thinking right here at home
In the sun’s kingdom

The beginning of the end
Of the tolerance that once could sin
The tyrant to power
His day is done

In the worldwide revolution
In the peaceful revolution
It’s the peaceful revolution
It’s the peaceful revolution

* Thanks to Mike Ganezer


!#$ the %&*! (Fuck the bullshit)
Music: Hexum/Watson/Martinez; Lyrics: Hexum/Watson/Martinez

You know I’m ready, and I rock steady
My name’s not Betty or Teddy, but Nick
And I’m not a hick with a head tick
Though I am from Nebraska
My girl is satisfied, you can ask her
You know I never visited Alaska
Huh, where the oil was spilt
That drunken captain should be killed
For polluting the sea, an atrocity
That fucks with me, well
This one goes to all the birds that drowned

Fuck the bullshit, it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit, it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit, it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit, it’s time to throw down

Just fuck the bullshit, and get with it
It’s time to throw down, so I said it
Words of wisdom, that will keep y’all guessing
Cause I’m tired of playin’ and I’m tired of messin’ around
With all y’all suckers, and stupid mother fuckers
Who put down what I do
I stand alone with a groove that’s new
Now that you know that the rhymes that I say
Are mine alone and I surely don’t play
A kick in the teeth, a condescending frown

Fuck the bullshit, it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit, it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit, it’s time to throw down

Right about now I’d like to turn over the mic to my mentor SA Martinez
Go on hopin’, I’m poetry in motion
No jokin’ you pray, my word is spoken
Of the latest, the greatest, of hip-hop persuaders
A line, a rhyme, always amazes brothers
The mic drum is loomin’
And in your mind, my rap rhyme is bloomin like a flower
Fuck the bullshit SA, create the power

Just forget the dumb stuff, I call your bluff
Cause I’m a big stick and youre a cream puff
And you hate it, and get frustrated
No tellin’ just how long you waited
I tell you what
I’m a white boy, so I don’t like the big butt
And, I got a plan, hand it to the man in the tan van
I would be perfectly sad if rap was a fad
But it’s not, so I thought that I’d give it a shot
Stupid dumb lyrics make you think I’m a clown
I don’t give a damn, it’s time to throw down

Fuck the bullshit, it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit, it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit, it’s time to throw down
Fuck the bullshit, it’s time to throw down

Down South
Music: Hexum/Sexton/Watkins; Lyrics: Hexum/Sexton/Watkins

Let me take you down south
Hear it from the dover’s mouth
The rhythm will make you want to move your body
I had it once and never ever forgot it
Feel the rhythm of rhapsody
Your body moves in raw ecstasy
Explosive eruption beyond compare, and
Take my advice, don’t think twice
Let me take you way down south

Step back cuz the funk is here and
The bass is kickin’ straight in your ear man
Because it’s like that so don’t talk back
And if you do then you’re gonna get a back slap
Down south, that’s an enigma
But to you it’s a stupid dumb stigma
That’s right it’s outta sight

Let me tell you about my baby
She loves me, and I don’t mean maybe
She knows what I think and I don’t have to say it
I love her so I don’t have to play it
We sit and drink in the sun
I raise my glass and say she’s the one
Cool breeze, light squeeze, life
Take my advice, don’t think twice
Let me take you way down south

Step back cuz the funk is here and
The bass is kickin’ straight in your ear man
Because it’s like that so don’t talk back
And if you do then you’re gonna get the back slap
Down south, that’s an enigma
But to you it’s a stupid dumb stigma
That’s right it’s outta sight

Psychedelic freak out taco funk frolic
Grind fiend roots ‘core soul music what have you
Psychedelic freak out taco funk frolic
Grind fiend roots ‘core soul music what have you

Step back cuz the funk is here and
The bass is kickin’ straight in your ear man
Because it’s like that so don’t talk back
And if you do then you’re gonna get the back slap
Down south, that’s an enigma
But to you it’s a stupid dumb stigma
That’s right it’s outta sight

Summer of Love
Music: Hexum; Lyrics: Hexum

I thought a lot about my scene today
And I’ve finally got the words to say
The truth is cutting like a knife
Gonna use it to cut away my strife
The grass is green and the sky is blue
My head is clear and my thoughts are true, yeah
That’s what I’m sayin

Callin’ out young and old
We got a thing that can’t be sold, yeah
The time it takes to rise above
In the summer of love

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say, yeah

I wake up each day to the sun
And it’s hard to choose what to do for fun (and man that’s a drag)
A blissful world surrounds me
And my brother’s and sister’s love is always free
Don’t you know that I’ve waited my whole life
Just to show what’s inside and let my love flow, yeah
That’s what I’m sayin’

Callin’ out young and old
We got a thing that can’t be sold, yeah
The time it takes to rise above
In the summer of love

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

I declare by the power vested in me
This is the summer of love and unity
Oh I say by the power vested in me
This is the summer of love and unity
I declare by the power vested in me
This is the summer of love and unity
Oh I declare by the power vested in me
This is the summer of love and unity
Oh I declare by the power vested in me
It is the summer of love

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say

It’s the summer
It’s the summer
It’s the summer of love I say, yeah

I say it’s the summer of love
My head is clear and my thoughts are true

Push It Away
Music: Hexum; Lyrics: Hexum

I used to have this idea
That getting a silver medal wouldn’t set me free
Oh but you know that I really don’t need
Cash or fame or credit
Nor a big fat bank account with no debit
So just set me straight,
Cause eating your peace of mind just can’t wait

I’ll send a telegram marked urgent, urgent
I hope it gets to my door, my big big door
I’m going free if they kill me
Cause this ain’t much better anywayJust push it away
Push it away
Just push it away
Push it away

Oh success, that elusive brainchild of greed
Something you want, not need
Face it, cause
Money can’t buy true friendship or trust
And applause will never be any substitute for love
But not me man, check it out

I’ll send a telegram marked urgent, urgent
I hope it gets to my door, my big big door
I’m going free if they kill me
Cause this ain’t much better anyway
Just push it away
Push it away
Just push it away
Push it away

* Thanks to Mike Ganezer


Slinky
Music: Hexum; Lyrics: Hexum

I was at this club minding my tea
I saw this pretty young thing so I thought that I would see
I don’t smoke, but asked her for a cigarette
I know it’s lame, but haven’t got a better one yet
Check this out
She danced so fine, I will gladly admit
She grinds divine, but I still cannot forget

That slinky girl is in my brain
Now I’ll never be the same
No one can ever see
What that slinky girl means to me
So I’ll just pretend
But I feel like

Word, well
I remember one night I’d seen her before
And then ten minutes later we were out the door
I’m glad to say that she gets away cause she can rock me and that’s ok
??? to turn them away
Or I’m gone away, sweetheart I’m gonna say
My pencil’s lead, my pen’s a little droopy baby, she’s so
I said my pencil’s lead, my pen’s a little inky
She moves me baby cause

That slinky girl is in my brain
Now I’ll never be the same
No one can ever see
What that slinky girl means to me
So I’ll just pretend
But I feel like

[What’s the name of this band? Unity!]
That slinky girl is in my brain
Now I’ll never be the same
No one can ever see
What that slinky girl means to me
That slinky girl is in my brain
Now I’ll never be the same
No one can ever see
What that slinky girl means to me

Independence Day
Music: Hexum; Lyrics: Hexum

Just throw away your material possessions
And sing the praises of life
This trip has taught me a valuable lesson
The future brings clarity and vision and sight

It was Independence Day
I’ve seen the other side and I say
Oh, I’ve been insane
And I will never be the same

A mountain brings me space
The vine brings me time
Wind brings me change
Unity with the (?)

It was Independence Day
I’ve seen the other side and I say
Oh, I’ve been insane
And I will never been same

As the raw sun sins in glamour
And his greedy and violent rays
Stimulate and torment assailants
Peace is dead
Uneasy moment as the first warrior stirs
Cerebreal denial breathes, scheming to return
The battle begins as the first victim
Slowly, grudgingly submits
Captivity of consciousness
And I say
It was Independence Day

To Be Honest
Music: Hexum/Sexton/Watkins; Lyrics: Hexum/Sexton/Watkins

To be honest
For the boy is hard
He doesn’t mean to break all those girls’ hearts

Perks that flow
Loaded gun
He only says them just to have his fun
And it sounds like this

You’re on my mind
All the time
You’re my one and only

Kick the booty
The boy is not hard
He throws down like a crazy retard

A gentle lie
And a clever line
A deceptive romance makes for heads to turn (?)

And it sounds like
You’re on my mind
All the time
You’re my one and only

Boy
The boy
Boy
The boy

And it sounds like this
You’re on my mind
All the time
You know you’re my one and only

Thriving to the Scene
Music: Hexum; Lyrics: Hexum

Everything seems turning
And the jam starts to break
? a circle
And red and not pink

I know it’s not my place
But something to face
My economy seems to be
In words not action actually

Thriving to the scene
Thriving to the scene
Thriving to the scene

Then I’m acting pissed
I’m clenching my fist
The very word is coming
But it’s the boy that I have missed
Hit it!

Thriving to the scene
Thriving to the scene
Thriving to the scene

* Thanks to Mike Ganezer
