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: Boxed In
give it up one time
as i spit dope rhymes
have the whole world shakin from my frankenstein
hit the line
rewind
till my mind's just fine
it's a fatal attraction to make this sign
(move back)
it's overcrowded
no, i'm just crazy
i could start to freak out, leak out hazy
maybe the problem is i'm not quite well
just a little messed up as you can tell
but seriously people, i've been through this
just one step back to the place i missed
then i find out there that i do exist
i go through with it
but i plead the fifth and
you know i go overboard sometimes and i resort to violence
but i stop myself in time, i'm trying
to obliterate this world of science
now stop

we gettin boxed in
(clear em out)

pick it up for a drop
wiggle to the side
clear em all out till your space is wide
don't worry bout your fate, cuz your place is fine
whole universe knows that you fit just right
it's over
take back your oohs and aahs
give back the awards and the broken laws
no applause for a train wreck, just gaping jaws
just a dip in the road as your head gets large
come on work that body till you drop to the floor
get it really worked up and ready for more
don't stop till you hear that you've dropped so hot
that the people wanna know where you got that rock
but you know everything is over, dying only makes you bolder
and you can't feel when your time has come
gettin boxed inside since the day you were born

now stop
we're getting boxed in
(clear em out)

ok one last time so your mind can shine
in the place where it matters most to get by
don't worry if the people down the street capsize
it's a very different boat where you take your ride
now look what you did
i'mma flip my lid
even in a different state of mind it's still like this
don't think about the words cuz it's all bullshit
just a way for me to expand my grip
so wallow in the filth of your pagan gods
cast fire from a heaven where i still see stars
it's a thing called life and it's overpriced
seek a prophet, christ, or some good advice
but you know everything is fiction, all beliefs have contradictions
and you can't prove that your faith is fact
when another idea might change all that

now stop
we're getting boxed in
(clear em out)
Track Name: Hate Your Neighbor
an avalanche of hate buries me in this place
i'm still embarrased from the act of just showing my face
i let em know straight up
that they still disgraced
it's just a hop skip and a jump until you get replaced
story time
once upon a midnight dreary
i feel the change gettin stranger as i feel my mind clearing
clearly
think of ways to make toothpaste
a total waste of a place giving out great rates
but nevermind
i've fallen out of time and back to the start
i'm grieving freely picking pieces of an actual heart
you got a mustache?
i would really shave it raw
only trebek could ever wreck it with a mustache on
you got a backbeat?
hit the streets and bump that shit
rock it loud, let it roll on while you take that hit
you got beef?
grill it up and let them know
take your neighbor like mcfeeley and deliver a blow

jesus freaking out about sinners and saints
a hard line to remind you to wash the taint
five wizards and a witch couldn't switch that late
it's so easy but you still freeze and hesitate
you gotta live for yourself and forget what you know
you always gotta rock waffles at my hip hop shows
mrs. butterworth will tell you so
jump up the line cuz it's time people, look at em go
i'd stay away from the type of guy that sits and stares
into space cuz he figures that nobody cares
so how does he know?
well, it's a radical thing
it's repetition and tradition just feeding the flame
i fucking hate you
cuz you don't think so well
you got your common sense locked up with your discount shell
you better figure out a way to get back in the plan
or consider that you'll never see the fall of man
Track Name: Melancholy Man
i'm a melancholy mannnnnnnnn
Track Name: Snake Mountain
in a sublevel dungeon, alpha code x2
i keep on makin my creations, check em out
brand new
i've been accused of being evil once or twice, that's true
but i handle my frustrations by obliterating you
i get up early in the morning
put my thinking cap on
sit down on my throne and plan to rule you all
it takes a little bit of patience to come with a plot
but i get the people bouncing cuz my music is hot
like a wizard i'mma blast through, no way to deflect
i keep my base of operations and my subjects in check
you better summon all your heroes if you takin me down
because my strength is amplified by the magic of sound
i'm a bad ass mother, better shut up your mouth
i creep inside your location just to fuck up your couch
you wanna beat me?
you don't even got the balls
you better fear my wrath when i'm shakin your walls

look at me chucking
my enemies are clucking
the chickenhearts wanna squawk but they always say nothing
i keep an iron fist pounding on the entry door
see em running tryin to hide out from whatever's in store
i got plots and schemes
i got dreams and plans
i been working out a way to put some fear in man
i been working in my lab day and night for months
it isn't all about veggin out and rollin blunts
i ain't a gangster
i'm an overlord
i got my minions in the city set to kick down doors
about to set up an alliance with lord skeletor
we'll take eternia and earth and make em beg for more
you insidious insects are all gonna be wrecked
when you encounter the power you gonna respect
i'm sending down showers of fire so you should be wet
you wanna see sweat?
i'm about to break necks

one
last
time gonna make you quake in fear and shake in your boots
take you a lifetime
get it right
i rule over you
you better pay tribute to the one who's takin the throne
i took an entire planet and i made it my own
and now you just can't stop me
i be cream of the crop
so while you sink to the bottom
i'm a rise to the top
i keep it real by controlling every thought that you have
so i can keep my occupation with the power i grab
i keep i wild in the sack cuz i don't mess around
i keep a high profile when i'm takin your town
and if you people want to stop me then you know where i'm at
i'm at my hideout naked changing all of your facts
i'm undefeatable, just read about my deeds and acts
i'm one small step away from a sociopath
but i care so much about the work that i do
that's why i work so hard to annihilate you
Track Name: Shrink Rap
a serious mind in perilous times
drop the hammer and up jumps a delicate line
on one side, shining is a glimmer of hope
but first you have to cross the land beyond the velvet rope
push products and advertise, hype yourself up
represent things, act like it's never enough
believe everything it is that they want you to think
that's the price that you pay for the american dream
is it worth it?
let me search it
i would guess that the words are worthless
just some banter to pepper the track with some verses
a lifetime of wasting my mind with your curses
so take a look up at my butt shaped butt
keep it poppin and fresh and roll dice in the club
even millions are never enough
shit i'd do it, i'd be tearing it up

pay no attention to those serious rhymes
i keep it rockin with you one more time
party people need to lose your mind
put your hands in the air baby, just unwind

did you want me to roll guns?
sure, i can do it
just give me a katamari ball and i'll get to it
i live stress free
i'm down for lunch
my favorite cereal is captain crunch
but life's drastically plastic in so many ways
it's so easy to live in an indefinite haze
all you gotta do is use what they gave ya
never question what they say, it won't save ya
keep frontin like you live for yourself
let your ego explode and live inside of yourself
put the common sense and decency left on a shelf
play along
or you'll have to play with yourself
you don't want that
you need to fit into a crowd
never say what you really mean, let it all out
and when they ask what it is that you're thinking about
just say nothing
don't start running your mouth

pay no attention to those serious rhymes
i keep it rockin with you one more time
party people need to lose your mind
put your hands in the air baby, just unwind

so uh...
i gotta ask em
cuz if i don't---
i don't know

what you know bout me
what you what you know bout me
what you know bout me
what you what you know
you know that i'm cool
you know that i'm poppin
my style is outrageous
and i'm always shoppin
what you know bout me
what you what you know bout me
what you know bout me
what you what you know
you know that i'm cool
you know that i'm poppin
i keep it locked off when you watch so you never talk
bad about anything too close to my heart
i keep a wider proximity than most do apart
my constructed anonymity is mostly an art
i never show you the real me, i live in the dark
and i
keep it emphatic in my world of plastic and laminate
everything i want, i'm havin it
if there's anything i see, i'm nabbing it
takin it straight to the top man, i'm planning it

pay no attention to those serious rhymes
i keep it rockin with you one more time
party people need to lose your mind
put your hands in the air baby, just unwind
Track Name: Beetlejuice and Metroid
beetlejuice and metroid
going to a strip club
looking for action
watching them titties shake

they go together
looking for the action
watching the ladies
watching them titties shake

but little did they know
that there was someone
who wanted them to go

enter simon belmont
he's with paris hilton
and they don't like them
watching them titties shake

so you gonna know that
there was an epic battle
but keep on dancing
watching them titties shake

cuz this kind of thing
happens all the time
cuz it's a strip club

beetlejuice and metroid
teaming up together
fighting the belmont
watching them titties shake

the whips and slut lips
can't defeat the power
of our defenders
look at them titties shake

and then metroid grabs the pole
and she rocks it
order another round

beetlejuice and metroid
Track Name: Black Queen (Float Away)
picture a summer night in the month of june
night sky rocking stars and a plastic moon
and you just
kick back cuz your feeling legit
ain't dealin with shit
all you got is time to kill and that's it
just relaxing
you're feeling fantastically
laid back
ain't nobody talking crap
just the right kind of moment you can take a nap
leaning the seat back
got your hands in your lap
go to sleep
close your nasty eyes
curl up in a blanket and exercise
you got to
sleep in your living room
sleep in your car
don't care if you at work or not man
sleep where you are
i said you better be
asleep when i get there
i'll knock you right out
you sleeping right here
better just take you a nap right now
cuz if you don't
i might just make a sleeping potion
slip it in your coke

float away
over the rainbow
fly away
you're going nowhere
float away
over the rainbow
fly away
you'll still be right here
float away (you're going nowhere)
fly away (you're going nowhere)
float away (you're going nowhere)
fly away (you're going nowhere)

alright
people now that everybody's asleep
i can cease making sense and just say what i think
i like tacos
but that stuff you already know
so i'll just be like number one and just make it so
pull my finger out and point to a magic location
do a zoom around boom to our destination
now get out
just walk around
jump up and down
to the magical sound
you hear the voices rejoicing
the forces anointing
the black wizard beat at the hands of the leet fleet
a rapture erupts at the news of her capture
and laughter explodes at her strung from the rafters
but wait a minute, that's a woman you know
so you slide to the left and you start to glow
and you rage in a way best imagined in brains
more adept at explaining these things in your dreams

float away
over the rainbow
fly away
you're going nowhere
float away
over the rainbow
fly away
you'll still be right here
float away (you're going nowhere)
fly away (you're going nowhere)
float away (you're going nowhere)
fly away (you're going nowhere)

alright get up
let's make some noise
don't worry about the black queen
she can employ
a vast arsenal of toys to get free of the places
and faces that wanna make sure she's erased
but wait
you're freaking late cuz you slept so long
you need to
get to the show and get your friction on
as you arrive on the scene you can spy your queen
looking mean
stepping out from her limousine
you see
strange guys in familiar masks
surround her and point their guns at her chest
you feel a
power inside and you slide to the left
start to glow and you blackout fore you see what's next
come to
wake up wake up in the black queen's arms
blood stained from a battle you cannot recal
and as you
help her majesty back into her car
she tells you to come inside
and she opens the door

float away
over the rainbow
fly away
you're going nowhere
float away
over the rainbow
fly away
you'll still be right here
float away
over the rainbow
fly away
you're going nowhere
float away
over the rainbow
fly away
you'll still be right here
float away (you're going nowhere)
fly away (you're going nowhere)
float away (you're going nowhere)
fly away (you're going nowhere)
Track Name: LOLZ
set aside some time
while i slide some rhymes to the outside
taking this all in stride
i gotta rebound the sound of the underground
check one
taking you out with more pound for pound
verbal knockouts than you could ever hope to muster
lackluster
got your style stuck in filibuster
you must have thought that the have nots were old news
i told you
we can do more than scold you
i got the ammo to get rid of more tyrants
than an atom bomb
strapped to the hand of god
with no pilot
don't got a reason to get hostile and violent
i just remain just as insane as the same day that my mind went
over the edge and just up out of your reach
you cant effect me using just your limited speech
my immunity will always keep me free of disease
people please
don't try to pacify me
oh wait
sorry people i was getting pretentious
didn't mean to just go off preaching schemes and adventures
let me flip it back around so i can poop on this track
because people round the world seem to know me for that
benjilenjamin bizzy
the internet rap guy
king cheese of the internet rap guys
i'm the kind of rapper other rap guys wanna look up on the double
i'll burst an internet bubble

(oh shit, the chorus)

lyrically obtuse i represent pants
cleveland needs to shake their pants
i'd do a handstand but it's well known that i can't
so i'll just take this opportunity to make up a dance
hands in the air
jump around, it's benjamin bear
got people out of their chairs and i made all of them care
like that madonna song where she loudly mentioned a prayer
then she cried up on a statue put her butt in the air and said
when you call my name
it's like a little prayer
i'm down on my knees
i wanna take you there
in the midnight hour
i can feel your power
just like a prayer
i wanna take you there
and then she wiggled for a few minutes more
and someone called her a bitch and someone called her a whore
but you know she would never care cuz she's incredibly rich
so madonna
you're a big dumb bitch
anyway it doesn't matter
cuz this song is over
it's not my best work
but hey, i'm not jehovah
just a crazy guy who really doesn't care what you think
but if you're down for being cool i'll probably buy you a drink
but hey
this is the internet
who cares how rich you get
and fame is insignificant compared to what you get with it
and now the situation is out of control
so just like mc gigahertz i'll do a barrel roll

(that chorus again)
Track Name: Darkside (feat. Brainthirst)
i know that they think that i'm a joke
i get shit on, picked on, laughed at and poked
but they don't see all the evil inside
i'm overclocking
and my heat is high
i set fire to way more than the game
and when i'm finished
your whole world's in flames
so don't tempt me
and don't push me too far
or i might just snap and make my world reborn
cuz i don't need you
i just need you gone
i ain't here to make you feel better
i ain't your pawn
and if you cross me again
i might just alter your tense
put you back in the past beyond the graveyard fence
my mind's slipping
and my patience is gone
i got half a mind left to make you dead by dawn
and i tell ya
if these looks could kill
i'd turn this whole building into amityville

so come on, tempt me
i'll let you meet my hyde
i'll let you visit what's on the darkside
so come on, tempt me
i got just one nerve left
and when it snaps, i'll make you pray for death

[brainthirst]
Track Name: Switch (feat. Teddy Form BBear and MC Skeletor)
[teddy form]
coming back one time, i'm a bring it
coming out the socket
blast you in the face like a rubber wrist rocket
kinda figured on the action
call me gi joe
i'm the hasbro
selling manufactured flow
i don't know, i'm a teddy
cut you when i'm ready
still bowling with my homies
keeping perfectly steady
high five to your face
i'm a fuck shit up
still flying robots right upside your nuts
i gotta fuzzy reputation for just backing my name
so if you people wanna battle
come and step to the lane
i'm in my drop top man
i got cars like a rainbow
just cuz i say so
weasels gotta lay low
people wanna play me cuz i'm beating the game
i make it first in the class when i'm switching the lane
itching for fame
cuz i'm excellent in all that i do
benjamin bear
still shock you like a pikachu

[mc skeletor]
my name is skeletor
don't make me whip the havoc from my staff
tens of millions of people all applauding when i laugh
ha ha ha ha
i'm diabolic
i'm the supervillain kind
all the people here that know me know i'm just out of my mind
i'm taking greyskull
he-man knows i'm up to the task
i come up walking to the door and take it out with a blast
and then i'm up inside the throne room plucking sorceress birds
it's just the force of my emotions in this battle of words
i'm talking skeletor
the villain all your children wanna be like
know things will never be right
eternia will be mine
i'm toying with my enemies so public beware
when i finally show my power then you know that i'm there
i'm bringing freeze rays to display my superior arms
skeletor still causing terror cuz i'm meaning you harm
evil-lyn by my side so you know i can't fail
mc dot skeletor, hit me up on gmail

[benjamin bear]
alright come get it up
you're picturing the changing of the guard
back up louder on the scene so i can hear you all applaud
making more of the amazing things that people say i'm known for
sorry how my horn blows
i'm a little unsure
grown old but not up
i'm a toys r us kid
there's still a million toys at toy r us that i would play with
so people get on up and feel it
put your hands in the air
now i'm picturing you waving them around like you don't care
i'd take you uptown except that i don't know where it's at
i'd take it back
have a relapse and turn into a cat
i drain the world in a flash
i'm the oblivious kind
i take a power level reading then i charge up my mind
i'm level 3 super sayian
launching kamehameha
i pull an instant transmission
then i'm catching you later
i'm bout to slip you all backwards through my mental abyss
i'm casting doubts on the theory that you even exist
Track Name: Obilvion
a flash of light
a shot of pain
in the place where no one goes
lost in self
gone insane
feeling like no one can know
stored treasures deep inside
for the ones who know your name
trust in self in short supply
can you still finish the game?

and i guess i'll meet you there
at the river of our lives
the air's still fresh
the water's warm
all things still point to life
and as we dive in the river
filling up with newer things
the sins of all past lives forgotten
childhood will wash away

those hateful eyes
accusing stares
turning hallways into hell
echoed curses heard away
left with no one to tell
deep depression settles in
feel the demons in your soul
fueling rage that burns within
left forgotten long ago

and i guess i'll meet you there
at the river of our lives
the air's still fresh
the water's warm
all things still point to life
and as we dive in the river
filling up with newer things
the sins of all past lives forgotten
childhood will wash away

oblivious now to the sky
soon the world will fade away
shutting out fantasized cries
can't get through another day
seems the river's lost its course
and the dam's about to break
keep yourself close to your heart
how much more can you take?

and i guess i'll meet you there
at the river of our lives
the air's still fresh
the water's warm
all things still point to life
and as we dive in the river
filling up with newer things
the sins of all past lives forgotten
childhood will wash away

and i'll hold till one gray morning
coming down with our life above the clouds, now raining
and i'll hold till one gray morning
follow the rainbow
until you meet your end
i'm coming home
Track Name: Tom Joad
the grapes of wrath
