Benjamin Bear Reading, Pennsylvania

In 1750, Benjamin Franklin was observed by over fifteen residents of Philadelphia as he branded an unidentified man with an Illuminati insignia. He was overheard telling one of his associates, “my work will be done once Benjamin Bear arrives to complete it.”

The reliability of these findings has been verified.

Benjamin Bear has arrived.

Track Name: Morning
lemme tell you bout the place of dreams
strange things
moving in from saturn's rings
and who knows where you'll go when realities change
it seems strange and insane
it stays the same
tryin to recognize but seein blank faces
strangers pass by with familiar graces
you want to see
try to read
not sure what's really happening
just tryin to breathe
then
a door appears in the middle of space
you walk up to it to examine its face
rough wood
cold steel
and heavy hinges
strange light emanating from around the entrance
you turn the knob and step all inside
light blinds you for a second then your eyes
adjust
you're in a whole new place
strange creatures are watching you
examining your face

and i'd say you were dreaming
you could say you were dreaming
yeah we could say you were dreaming
but you already woke up

one of them steps out from behind a mushroom
and says "hey, how you doin, it's the end of the world
there's an evil up ahead and it's steadily approaching
we sent out some scouts but we fear that they're roasting
in the fires of the evil lord gorgon
we need a hero and it's you we bet our lives on
now if you need just a little more urging
there's a girl we involved and she's probably still a virgin"
you get a sword and a couple hundred bucks
set out on the road and get bombarded by bugs
who attack you in a turn based fashion
monsters perished, get experience and rations
move
to the next
several dungeons to go
you know this cuz the people told you so
finally you arrive at the demon's lair
better hope you're prepared, if you lose no one is spared

and i'd say you were dreaming
you could say you were dreaming
yeah we could say you were dreaming
but you already woke up

start start
epic battle beat on you
fight fight
cuz the world depend on you
you keep attacking but the stats are maxed
you and your allies might be outmatched
still you fight with unlimited courage
and even lord gorgon looks slightly discouraged
the ground starts shaking
the earth starts quaking
one of your party says something dumb about bacon
the earth spirits burst up out of the ground
grant you their power just by singing a round
of an ancient song that made you remember
that you were never part of the world that you came from
just when victory's about to be reached
the world blinks
and you jolt from your sleep
reach for your pillow and you nestle in deep
you never notice that you're still in your dream

and i'd say you were dreaming
you could say you were dreaming
yeah we could say you were dreaming
but you already woke up
Track Name: Oh Crap, Vampires
i get up in the morning
cuz i wake with the sound
you know it's good to put my feet
back down on the ground
and start walking
because when it gets dark
there be undead creatures waiting to be making their mark
almost immortal
except for just a few things
when i'm out after midnight that be just what i bring
i keep a sharo eye
out for anything strange
because one of these demons can shift and change
into something
that you ain't seen before
so you better get your ass right back through the door
and don't think
about inviting them in
unless you want your blood sucked right out of your skin
they mean business
i mean seriously
they got a craving and a knowledge to get what they need
so be watchful
of the darkening skies
and only go walking after morning in the sunshine

i met a man
he said his name was count d
and i was trying to make out what he wanted from me
he looked forward
with a menacing stare
he had menacing fangs
and some menacing hair
he was pale
and his eyes were dark
and i could tell right away that he was not dick clark
it wasn't new years'
but i gave him a bash
and then i made my escape with a serious dash
i grabbed a chair leg
and i broke it in half
made a point at one end
and then i heard the guy laugh
and then he transformed
into demonized fog
and then he took the shape and the form of a dog
i said fuck that
i'm getting out of here
i never should gone back outside to get beer
but then he ducked out
and i think i know why
because over the horizon things were shining
in the sunshine
Track Name: pH
in a secret location
beyond observation
a lone cub
was collecting information
he didn't have much, just expectations
of rocking on the mic with expectorations
frustration
set in on occasion
but he kept at it with no hesitation
sending pot shots to administration
still achin
for that long lost ovation
but hey wait a tick, things are looking up
his mind sparks and his two eyes light up
he's got it now
he's got the fuel to feed
set fire to the forest cuz he blaze the trees

so what's the game for?
watch me get on top
my pH is acidic every time i drop
check the value
yo, your mind just stopped
you better check your watch
cuz it's your time i copped

stealth ninja
sniping like a soldier
waking you up like a pot of folger's
i told ya
you just better beware
it's the original benjamin bear
i got snyder
forming like a whitelighter
street fighter
coming harder than strider
with dope shit that'll leave you mindless
and have you coming back like you got sequelitis
excite this
while i scrape the pen
and write lines that rhyme and hit your brain again
i'll be the jimmy woods
to your lucas barton
a white wizard casting my game at level 10

so what's the game for?
watch me get on top
my pH is acidic every time i drop
check the value
yo, your mind just stopped
you better check your watch
cuz it's your time i copped

ripping up spacetime
fuck the continuum
i'm on a mission
hell yeah, i'm a get me some
don't want a piece, i'm a take the whole pie
i just do it cuz there is no try
shred the syntax
like i was full of midichlorians
someone tell me how i ain't nerdcore again?
it doesn't matter, i'm beyond all that
coming at you ghosts like a pac-attack
i'm more desired than an intel mac
i get a fat sack to keep the track from getting wack
relax
i ain't about to leave
my ill communication makes your program bleed

so what's the game for?
watch me get on top
my pH is acidic every time i drop
check the value
yo, your mind just stopped
you better check your watch
cuz it's your time i copped
Track Name: Audio Ninjitsu (feat. ZeaLouS 1)
[zealous 1]
you better train
wreck your brain
coming at you quick i'll leave you slain
in the shadows i remain
till you're nothing but a stain
video game assassin
noobie lives are passin
shut down shop
i'm the cream of the crop
i won't stop till my name's on top
let that pop
let it rain
this is one serious game
all i know's what i've been through
i'll make sure you earn your due
come from the back all dressed in black
i get stealth when on attack
loco lyrics on the track
ninja stars all in your back
fastest hands you never saw
up in the air like tony jaa
kill you quick with dragon claw
my style is without flaw
come in the pit with me and see
how long you last on the m-i-c
with the zealous o-n-e
once you're in you can't get free
if you wanna go i play for keeps
giving emcees on shakes the creeps
melting in their darkest dreams
moving through inside the beats
silently i scream my flow
nerdy ninjas on the go
coming at me better be on time
listen again and get a brand new rhyme

ain't nobody on the mic that can cut quite like this
we're chillin in the dark, ain't no way to fight this
slice layers off your life like we're ginsu
assassins on the mic, audio ninjitsu
pray to your gods if tonight we find you
coming out your stereo right behind you
slice layers off your life like we're ginsu
assassins on the mic, audio ninjitsu

[benjamin bear]
better work it fast
coming to attack
slide around and work it
slice you open on impact
tell the cretins that you run with that we're coming for them fast
bring the strongest here to fight us and we'll see how long they last
coming up from the shadows
strike you on different channels
verbal wit is sharpened down
to a diamond edge in battle
can't just run and hide from the assault that we bring
our stereos are nuclear, i sure they'll more than sting
hot with a virtue
here comes the hurt
you know we stick around
better take the bait
and eliminate
yourself when we're around
it's dangerous
to just kick up dust
because it blocks out all the sound
so the next one that you hear is when we take you to the ground
in the dark
we'll be creepin
sneakin up on you slow
then we strike like the dynamite
and we watch your circuits blow
was it you?
was it me?
man they don't even know
but that's just the way of ninja when they kill you with this flow

[zealous 1]
ain't nobody on the mic that can cut quite like this
we're chillin in the dark, ain't no way to fight this
slice layers off your life like we're ginsu
assassins on the mic, audio ninjitsu
pray to your gods if tonight we find you
coming out your stereo right behind you
slice layers off your life like we're ginsu
assassins on the mic, audio ninjitsu

trapped and laying low
you wanna walk it then let me know
i'll be here ready set and go
matrix moving grooving slow
take your time
ain't no race
either way i'll rock your face
go ahead run i'll give you chase
you can't hide in outer space
every time we're flying
noobies end up dying
putting up a fight with us, i don't know why you're trying
you know the style's flawless with the b and z
carving on your forehead p-w-n-d
[benjamin bear]
yo these emcees ain't got nothing that they showing to us
i even gave them extra buffers and we still ran amok
so there's your chance
guess you missed it
too bad it was your last
you could have ducked and ran for cover
but you choking on your ass
get the high signs going
undercover's all we know
we never stop drop with it
we're on fire, we don't roll
we just one step away from being total mind control
back to the issue
hack your tissue
you were moving way too slow

[zealous 1]
ain't nobody on the mic that can cut quite like this
we're chillin in the dark, ain't no way to fight this
slice layers off your life like we're ginsu
assassins on the mic, audio ninjitsu

Track Name: Server Log (feat. Logic One)
[logic one]
this is netspeak son
you better lurk before you leap
two leet phreaks at peak
respect the bandwidth, geek
the meek
shall inherit the interweb
we seek to find the most efficient means for machines to lose heat
no i'm not the type to engage in flamining or perpetuate
nerds really are at the center of cyber space
i left my ip address and headed for bbear's place
he said this beat contains a virus and it's gonna melt your face

[benjamin bear]
toxic melody
poisioning with no remedy
the beat illuminates your brain like flame lsd
from the net i strike out to work you
rip the server past the limit of its virtues
it's worthless
i'm dousin all your firewalls
set your ports to null and launch a free-for-all
blast past this faster than fios access
relaxin
you're still lagged for a reaction

My chipset's brand new
I got service pack 2
And we'll both snatch the motherboard right out of your crew
LogicOne where you at?
Bear, I'm waiting on you I need someone to flip the switch on my PSU
My chipset's brand new

BBear where you at?
L, I'm waiting on you I need someone to flip the switch on my PSU


don't slow it down
we need to speed this up
get off your proxies and disconnect your modem plugs
we keep it broadband
our packets never drop
i'm tired of buggy rappers coding like they're microsoft
i'm multitaskin
while your processes keep lastin
the progress bar is scrolling but the process crashed in action
we smashin
any throttle on the bandwidth
the only thing i'm asking is some avatars to hang with

[logic one]
looking for avi's? you can roll
just remember don't feed the troll
notorious for cracking code and injecting venom in souls
we write rhymes in demo mode
two ironmongers know your role
WYSIWYG check the sig kids are 28.8 slow
stlye is free for download prepare for system overload
on the I-way hocking verbal shareware, programming pros
we insert pictures in posts so you can see it when we flow
get close and we will close your window
this is the pwn

hop a lead fist overture

and just make it true
running up behind you

i went from giving a fuck to giving two shits less
than the average bear
getting shit off his chest

i only stick with the best
i never get bogged down by a pair of breasts
i'm only human
but i learned my lines
i keep em back and forth
banging out a quicker reply
what can i do about the feeling that i hide deep inside
i guess that i can only push em back up into my mind
how can i face it up
when i can't make it up?
if i was back on my feet i might just break shit up
but i can't cuz it goes against my oldest rule
you never shit where you eat cuz eating shit ain't cool

always wrapped in allegory
telling my story

making it work out for me
it's a place where i go
to work out my psychosis
going through the motions mixing powerful potions

putting the eyes in the sockets of my minion's faces
making em see till they reach their final destination
soon unleashed upon all of the nation
building creatures feature secrets of my master creation

so come on step up step up
and set this place on fire
i'll break down this existence make this old one expire
come on step up step up and set these fuckers on fire
tear it all down and expose all the liars

one last twist and a flick of the wrist
i check the circuits then i stand back and flip on the switch
then my soldiers awake
it's a brand new day
turn to me and i hear my creatures start to say:
"master we see you
ready for your command
just hit our ignition
set us loose on the land
we are ready to serve you"
ok, everyone come
let us ride out in the world and destroy everyone

so come on step up step up
and set this place on fire
i'll break down this existence make this old one expire
come on step up step up and set these fuckers on fire
tear it all down and expose all the liars
Track Name: Butt Like That
yo you know i like a good butt
that's why i keep up
so i can slam the cheeks shut
don't agree with me?
so what
benjamin bear
he be giving no fuck
a butt to make you lose your mind
the kind that's fine
and before you know you gotta bump and grind
so get with the signs of times
illuminate the dance floor then unwind
so get up there and show it off
bounce it low so that we know it's soft
watch the player haters just getting off
cuz they can't have what they know they want
cuz you know they wanna hit this
see em droolin in the corner practicing their best shit
but don't you let em get this
just keep shaking it until they have conniptions

where'd you get a butt like that?
you could start a battle with a butt like that

girl
look what you do to me
every time you shake that fine booty
every time i turn around, what do i see?
another fine butt dead in front of me
that's right
passing glances at you all night
eventually i wanna take you home to no lights
have ourselves
a sexy little pillow fight
butt naked
but only if it's all right
so ladies get on the floor
show us what you got and then show some more
keep shaking till you can't shake no more
show us something that we've never seen before
but don't keep acting up
cuz everybody wants to see you shake that butt
so keep moving till you break that strut
hit that split that gimme that butt

where'd you get a butt like that?
you could start a battle with a butt like that

shake it
make it
please don't break it
it's a fine time to recreate this:
the sight of some very lovely butts
shaking on the floor like they gonna give it up
so let the music move ya
let it flow through like i'm gonna sock it to ya
other men just wanna screw ya
but i wanna give that butt a hallelujah
so ladies let's worship that
just keep shaking till you lose some fat
raise it up an octave

hold up
let me squeeze that dime
butt so fine gonna make me go blind

where'd you get a butt like that?
you could start a battle with a butt like that
Track Name: Last Drop
i get the last drop
you get the last drop
i'm feeling slightly better
i was so under the weather

give me the freedom to exist in my home
i sold the glass half empty just to pay off my loan
i give the last palm empty but the bread is my own
now i may never roam very far away from where i'm from
k, that's a lie
no it isn't
cuz i'm never at rest
i keep my brain pulsating like the heart in my chest
and then i move out and strike with an adequate mass
it doesn't matter cuz i still knock you flat on your ass

i get the last drop
you get the last drop
i'm feeling slightly better
i was so under the weather

non toxic
that's what they said it should be
but they lied and they took my mind away from me
but i escaped
darted quickly over miles of terrain
i saved a piece of my brain
but i still remained insane
and it's crazy
what they keep doing to me
they keep on blotting out perceptions they don't want me to see
they keep on snuffing out the light so i can never be free
one day i'll find a way to finally be free of disease

i get the last drop
you get the last drop
i'm feeling slightly better
i was so under the weather

so look out citizens
i'm up in your town
better think fast
i'm in a dash about to run you all down
better make plans
not to converge up with the plans of my own
better take steps not to expect me just to leave you alone
better take a look around before i drop in again
and then my eyes will dilate and i'll inherit a grin
what can i say, son?
it's just inherent in sin
but it's different when your mind is what you're traveling in

i get the last drop
you get the last drop
i'm feeling slightly better
i was so under the weather
Track Name: Fragile Minds After Midnight
i'm just another motherfucker
kicking rhymes into space
i never said i was infallible
i still make mistakes
and the times that i tried to steal with my life
always seemed to backfire
make situations jack knife
so nowadays
i always gotta think twice
i don't need another problem like before so i'll play nice
but life is always there to throw a wrench in the plans
and life knows i like pussy dicking me when it can
but i've learned enough
to know when things get rough
to prepare yourself because you might just give something up
so i think
about the payment of dues
and i try to contemplate exactly what i can lose
what's expendable
and what i can't live without
once i make up my decision then the hammer falls down
and then i'm left
back to where i began
i really thought i learned something
well, i learned it again

don't cry for me
and i won't cry for you
no i won't cry for you
don't bring me down
don't fall for me
and i won't fall for you
no i won't fall for you
it's just the ground

kicking
falling
come back to crawling
though that i was shot calling
my mind was just stalling
trying to keep from going crazy or insane
formulating different processes up in my brain
but wait
damn it
i go back to you
and i start all over thinking about what i should do
and i see my real intentions sneaking up on the side
i hope that i can still retain them otherwise it won't fly
now wait a sec
what would make me happier still
is to peel off these emotions so i don't have to feel
i could be casually taking the last blast of love
toss it out like it's garbage but it's never enough
if i could
i'd tear my system apart
and i'd lock up all the entrances back into my heart
but i can't
and so i try to exist
but it seems that every time someone moves onto my list

don't cry for me
and i won't cry for you
no i won't cry for you
don't bring me down
don't fall for me
and i won't fall for you
no i won't fall for you
it's just the ground
