Track Name: Crook With Class (ft. King Bacon)
CROOK WITH CLASS

Deep down in the cold heart of the mountain
A cool plush room is where I am found in
Shackled by a wall of glass
In this mink lined prison yep this crook got class
Faint hum of machinery
Fake caned air
Five star scenery
But its all a facade
For the multi-million maniac that thinks he is god
Than a cavernous voice echoes throughout the cell
"Join me for dinner its a quarter to twelve"
The guards at my back pick me up and lead
To the doctor's room, last meal is fed
Enter the chamber 60 feet tall
Tomes and trophies line the walls
"Welcome to my study the description was correct
Agent Samwise, a dangerous threat
We pulled a lot of strings to get you into this web
A high profile fly that the Spider wants dead"
The doctor of death he's a terrifying figure
The words in my briefing didn't fit the picture
6 foot 6 hands made of steel
Missing nerves in the brain so pain he doesn't feel
Rockets from this swiss fortress
Have shot down planes from NATO's forces
So I was sent in, the undertaker's wind
Exterminating while invisible to those within
My sights, the cross hair is precise
Yep even on this villian that captured me tonight
So I'm sitting through formalities
Ten moves later stacking up casualties
"Are you bored? I'll cut to the chase
Horizons of agony torture awaits
I specialize in suffering and torment
And my chamber of horror is where you will be sent
In the Black Widow Criminal Cult I'm the sickest
And you're a nuiscance, top of my hit list
Do you have any last words to speak?"
Its about time punk I've been waiting a week
There's just one thing that you forget
Every agent in the CIA has a homing chip
Thunder claps, knocked back from the blast
The Air Force attacks and the bombs drop fast
Confusion and shock I take the gun to my left
Pump the guards full of lead aim at the Doctor of Death
But then he drops through a trap door
So I dive in after through a pit in the floor
Sliding down a slope of Swiss fresh powder
Friendlies in the skies drop skis 11th hour
Gunnin down the slopes got the Doc against the ropes
Flare gun to the back of the head now he's covered in smoke
Then fire, the Doc is retired
He could've got away I took him out under the wire
Then I look up ahead there's a cliff approaching fast
Pure momentum no brakes for the gas
Free fall, but I'm not going out tonight
I pull a parachute out with the Stars & Stripes
Cruising and reflecting up in the sky
Don't need to be airborn to tell I'm fly
Still puzzled by the motives of the sinister Doc
I don't know the Black Widows but they gotta be stopped
Unlimited funds, no country of origin
A criminal cult based on fear and extortion
I drop into a well placed snow mobile
A new mission pops out from my watch made of steel
Track Name: Operation Eagle Claw
Operation Eagle Claw

Suited up in my bulletproof outfit
License to kill head full of clout its
A new objective test my expertise
On a plane to Brazil to wreck our enemies
I got a leather case, a bag of tricks
And a platinum baretta with a skeleton grip
But I don't got time to discuss the contents
So I crack the highly classified documents
We've been out on the streets sowing dissent
And now its time to dust the President
Sky dive to the palace with zero support
When the people can't do it I'm the last resort
Stalking like a panther roaming the ground
"This is how we" take 'em down

86'ing bodyguards
Draped up camoflage
Silencer dissolves the shots like a mirage
Leaving dozens of ghosts that didn't know I was there
Now its time to descend on the presidential lair
Grappling hook launched up on the side
Three stories in a second its motorized
Circular slice cut the window is broken
Power lines out no alarm has spoken
Slipping through the doorway real hush
Pitch black lights eyes adjusted to the dusk
I take a stride inside and then to my left side
I hear a safety lever slide back and glide
So I duck to the ground and fire at will
12 automatics reply, the air is filled
Roll out and begin the race
3 bodies drop 9 on the chase
With the speed of a cheetah and the leap of a frog
I dive three stories in a pool of fog
I turn to fire, lead fills my chest
Maybe now I'll get some rest
Track Name: Plan Omega (ft. Uh-Oh & Pumpkin P)
PLAN OMEGA

Wretchedness, with a vomiting fit
Head spinning like a turbine on a lift
Which means of course I'm tied up and feeling dizzy
Surrounded by armed guards real busy
In the laboratory cooking up concoctions
Category, red alert lost in
Hostile territory, gear locked up
Disavowed as a hostage boxed snuffed
Now they're arguing in Portugese
One half wants to shoot of my knees
And the other half are talking bout a petit fish
Not a whole lot of ways to get outta this
Then the thugs all part for the spider in charge
Mustache with a cap and general stars
Sadistic grin, cold pat on the back
"Plan Omega is right on track"

"No longer a pawn, we got our own scheme
To bring the west and the east down to their knees
My fraternity has been plotting the doom
Of the major world powers by the next full moon
What's the strategy? Haha you'll never know
How far up this conspiracy goes"

"We got a new drug called Devil's Breath
It warps your mind like nothing else
Inhale just a little bit then you start to feel sick
Reeling peeling then you start to feel it
And when you wake up a stupor sets in
Shaken up, born again as a weapon
Stay tuned, cuz we're whipping up a new batch
Try to escape and we'll chop you in half
And besides that, there's something else you know
Your life is ticking down, not much time to go
We left the bullet in inches from your heart
And the quicker it beats the quicker its gonna stop"
Plottin' my escape, rusty chains I can break
In this environment...what else will it take?
There's nine guards and they're armed to the teeth
On amphetimines, so they get no sleep
So I gotta kick back, and bide my time
As they plot new ways to wash my mind

"No longer a pawn, we got our own scheme
To bring the west and the east down to their knees
My fraternity has been plotting the doom
Of the major world powers by the next full moon
What's the strategy? Haha you'll never know
How far up this conspiracy goes"

Black cat green eyes steps to the scene
Torture instruments, the metal gleams
The guards all leave and she looks at me
And I wish this lioness wouldn't be
Indifferent to my prediciment
Beautiful cold soul with a slick tint
Then our lips introduce with her tongue she's a major
The taste has a rush and honey sweet flavor
Eyes now concerned she speaks in my ear
Real quiet "(shh) so nobody will hear"
She slips me the keys and I ask her why
"I don't wanna see millions die"
Then she reaches in my pants...and gives me a gun
"Meet at the club off Main around 1"
The hour glass tush slides through the door
The guards come back they don't know what's in store
So I kick back, and plot my next move
Haunted in my head by the general who's...

"No longer a pawn, we got our own scheme
To bring the west and the east down to their knees
My fraternity has been plotting the doom
Of the major world powers by the next full moon
What's the strategy? Haha you'll never know
How far up this conspiracy goes"
Track Name: Always Prepared
ALWAYS PREPARED

Break out split second locks unhooked
Couple shots to the head take em out by the books
Then I check perimeter and stash the corpses
Memorize the map of this jungle fortress
Then I look at my watch, the homing chip is dust
No back up to trust a new plan is a must
So on the desk I grab my tricked out briefcase
Change to a suit, and plot my escape

Creeping scoping the army in the bunker
They're alarming bought by private funders
In suits with a fleet of Rolls Royce Coupe's
The general salutes the mercenary troops
Then I sneak through the shadows in the back
The invisible assassin outta the trap
Then I see my exit, a window moonlit
What do I do next? This

Every hit, and the heart beats faster
Another step up and it might not last
And so it's calm like a lullaby sting silently
I gotta keep cool, and its natural for me
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool (yep)
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool,
And its natural for me

Approach a guard calm, and ask for a light
When he reaches in his pocket cut his throat with a knife
And then I take his gun and grab his shirt
Then I pick out my favorite Rolls Royce first
Then I go to the others, much as it pains me
I stash their gas tanks with the cloth he just gave me
Light em up, and begin to hot wire
Clock ticks down to the building fire
Ignite the engine, race to the door
Grabbin their attention with a pedal to the floor
The cars explode troops hit the ground
I take my shot but the boss ducks down
Ducked down myself dodging all of the bullets
Race to the door speed pushed to the fullest
Chest starts to burn, losing focus
How do I keep it low? This

Every hit, and the heart beats faster
Another step up and it might not last
And so it's calm like a lullaby sting silently
I gotta keep cool, and its natural for me
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool (yep)
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool
So I gotta keep cool
And its natural for me

Crash through the gate drive into the harbor
As I dive through the water with vehicular armor
Windows shattered, so I can swim out
Cruising down in the aquatic escape route
Rise to the shore and breathe some air
Next move plotted, always prepared
Reach to my case and pull out a fresh suit
Then I light up a cigar to keep my heart rate smooth
Walking down Main St. half past one
Tracking down the broad that gave me the gun
I find the club, by the dope fresh beat
Looking out for spiders lurking out in the street
And then I hear alarms in the distance
But just like a magician
I disappear when I wish to
But I gotta duck the mercs and look out for this too

Every hit, and the heart beats faster
Another step up and it might not last
And so it's calm like a lullaby sting silently
I gotta keep cool, and its natural for me
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool (yep)
So I gotta keep cool (what)
So I gotta keep cool
So I gotta keep cool
And its natural for me
Track Name: Crash Dive (ft. Pumpkin P & Best Friend Steve)
CRASH DIVE

Crash dive code name I got bad luck
On my own, and I can't call back up
Crash dive code name sticky situation
On my own, and they've severed all relations
Crash dive code name I got bad luck
On my own, and I can't call back up
Crash dive code name sticky situation
On my own, and they've severed all relations

Up at the bar, just give me a drank
Sipping scotch on the rocks take a rest and think
About the shadow military, and all the possibilities
A lot of bad things could be done with my abilities
Then she sits down on my lap at the table
An amazonian from all the dirtiest fables
She kisses me again with those lucuious red lips
Then swerves with her hips with a hypnotic twist
But I push the broad away and say business first
She lights up a smoke and reaches into her purse
She hands me a ticket and the cult manifesto
Suspicious of her motives and consumed by the stress so
I finish my drink and begin to depart
The babe smiles, and I think about my heart
"Its a good thing that you turned down this dance
You gotta save the world and time is ticking down fast"

On my own, should I call for help?
There's a mole in the midst I gotta go by myself


Crash dive code name I got bad luck
On my own, and I can't call back up
Crash dive code name sticky situation
On my own, and they've severed all relations
Crash dive code name I got bad luck
On my own, and I can't call back up
Crash dive code name sticky situation
On my own, and they've severed all relations

Feeling kinda dizzy stepping up to the plane
Got a rum on ice to slow my heart and numb the pain
"Get ready to depart" Open up the briefcase
One eye on the window looking for the army on the chase
Open up the document, 30,000 feet in the air
Flipping through the contents and I'm not prepared
For the depth of this plot unfolding
A new world order with the Spider controlling
Double dirty bombin' KGB and CIA
The lady spy and I will blow our home bases away today
Creating a crisis and a vacuum of power
As the USSR and the US are devoured
If I didn't break out I'd be right en route
To VA, Langley, I'd get in without a doubt
And Agent Tania is on her way to the Kremlin
With a bomb in her purse to make the ground start trembling

I gotta make a plan to stop the catastrophic rise
Of the army for hire, deep sleep I shut my eyes
Track Name: Edge Of A Knife (ft. Best Friend Steve)
EDGE OF A KNIFE

Woken up from my slumber
4 hours of sleep head burns like thunder
I'm winking at the stewardess, she's shaped like a model
I slip the babe a 100 and she gives me a bottle
Exit the plane enter the morning
Egyptian sun hot sweat its pouring
Status MIA, my presence they request
All units on the search cuz they know that I'm the best
Walking through the market with a weight on my chest
I gotta save my nemesis and battle the stress
In 24 hours the silos empty
No one knows it now but they'll both be glad they sent me
So how to proceed as a debanair spy
With a phony passport and a $1,000 tie
The answer is simple, I gotta keep it arctic
Saving both powers while rescuing my heart its

Walking on the edge of a knife
In this fight
The riskiest bet to make its ya life
Walking on the edge of a knife
In this fight
On pure instinct yep I can't think twice

First step, gather information
Second step check subtle infiltration
Third step check total assimilation
When I get what I need, sever all the relations
So I climb up the ladder to the rival representative
Filling up my bladder with a heavy dose sedative
On the fist level I find
A strange ally that fits at this time
Stern face, cold eyes the militant element
Battling the godless getting down with fundamentalists
Dollars for dirt on the embassy they despise
"The ambassador works 'til a quarter to five
And he can't be bribed, so don't even try
A loyal Communist that's suspicious of spies
So I step to his crib in the plan I revised
Who opens the door? His wife with beautiful eyes

Walking on the edge of a knife
In this fight
The riskiest bet to make its ya life
Walking on the edge of a knife
In this fight
On pure instinct yep I can't think twice

My game is a spell I got her under hypnosis
A kitten neglected suddenly I'm in focus
I picked her a flower my guess her favorite
In the palm of my hand, this case is so basic
I guess that ya dude doesn't give ya attention
Whoa there honey, I got a couple questions
Collecting info slow and steady
Secrets come easy when they breathe heavy
The kitty is asleep its a quarter to four
Its easy to tell she never purred before
So I slide through the bed and drop to my objective
My plan is risky but I can't be selective
So I step to the embassy like I'm important
I know all the passwords now I'm in the fortress
Stroll through the lobby, past receptionist
The armed guards stare and he's having a fit
"How did you get in? Just who the hell are you?"
Triggers at the ready but I do like the sharks do
That means I'm unpredictable here's what I do next
I'm an American spy with info and I wanna defect
Track Name: 2 Hours
2 HOURS

Roughed up, I got a blue face
Handcuffed, to a suitcase
My hair is dripping red from the blood in my head
But if I don't do something then we're all gonna be dead

Chilling winds, blow through the trees
Dead leaves, winter in these streets
I told 'em I got documents classified
In my case, Moscow led on a lie
Double iron doors machine gun sentries
Moguls of death grant me entry
Now I'm prodded into the office
I told 'em I got info and I hope they bought it

Roughed up, I got a blue face
Handcuffed, to a suitcase
My hair is dripping red from the blood in my head
But if I don't do something then we're all gonna be dead

So I reach out to the cold eyes in desperation
I got a piece of valuable information
But its not what ya thought I presented at first
There's an agent in your ranks with a bomb in her purse
With a face so vicious, looking suspicious
The name I report to the boss on her hit list
Witness this, a shocking twist
This female spy does not exist
Two hours to go, why didn't I see?
This pain in my chest, the bomb its me
Quick jab to the right, chop chop to the left
Uppercut to a hook while I catch my breathe

Roughed up, I got a blue face
Handcuffed, to a suitcase
My hair is dripping red from the blood in my head
But if I don't do something then we're all gonna be dead

So I knock 'em all out tick tick to the tock
Throw a chair through the window running up against the clock
Dive outside in a roll to the run
I'm up against an army but I don't got a gun
AK-47's open fire, clack clack clack clack
Run like track, no turning back
Shots exploding in the ground all around me
Running from the distant alarms sounding

Roughed up, I got a blue face
Handcuffed, to a suitcase
My hair is dripping red from the blood in my head
But if I don't do something then we're all gonna be dead

Dodging all the heat duck to a cut in the street
Clock is ticking down, nothing left in my feet
Last resort, this isn't good
Hot wire a car and open up the hood
Get ready to jump the bomb short the fuse
A couple thousand volts, yeah its bad news
But I chose to take my chances with luck
Grit my teeth, in voltage I trust
Track Name: Cold Hearted (ft. Misty Myers & Mike Balls)
COLD HEARTED

Cold hearted streets, where nobody sleeps
In these cold hearted, cold hearted, cold hearted streets

Wake up breathe froze no where to go
Too cold to be hell so I guess the bomb didn't blow
So I rise up, brush the snow off
The horizon a'int looking bright bloody cough
Tossed up and then lost
Behind enemy lines yep I've been double crossed
By the slim silky thighs and the cold devil eyes
With the kiss of a drug and the breath of demise
But...I rely on one thing only
Me myself and I, yeah its lonely
But...judging from these past events
Depending on nobody else only makes sense
So...I pick up and get on the move
Walking by a television playing the news
Look at the screen, my face is in the box
Most wanted on the side lines by both sides I'm
Lost, what to do next
Treason suspect stuck deep in a mess
Up in a bog of lies sinking down to my knees
Only one thing to blame...these

Cold hearted streets, where nobody sleeps
In these cold hearted, cold hearted, cold hearted streets

Faceless, a colleague in the midst
Keeping quiet while I'm stalking like a predator fish
But I'm ahead of it this way and that
I turn around and grab the hand that tries to hit me in the back
But I look in his eyes its my old friend and ally
British Secret Service, "Now I
Am sorry old chap, I was testing your wits
I really dropped in these streets to get you out of this fix
The Shadow Syndicate that's been hunting you lately
Is run by Mr. Midnight, but this is where it gets crazy
Apparently, this character is a ghost
That possesses the servants that he values the most
According to our source in the web who has spoken
Your chief is the spider that midnight has chosen
So follow me through our pipeline transport system
And learn about your new mission"
Cruising in a capsule passing hostile borders
Heading to the UK on his boss's orders
The only person I trust in my hour of need
A one way ticket out of these

Cold hearted streets, where nobody sleeps
In these cold hearted, cold hearted, cold hearted streets
Track Name: Dig Two Graves (ft. Mike Balls)
DIG TWO GRAVES

Open the door to a world of spy gear
Rocket cigarettes mics in our ears
But, one thing gets my attention
Continental Bently "My own invention"
Battleship grey paint rough not gloss
Mark IV engine, twin exhaust
Long gray nose with a bolt of thunder
"Open up the hood, and see what's under"
Triple automatics, front and back
Oil slicks in the mix bulletproof on the dash board
"There's nothing that we can't afford
And for this assignment she is yours
Plus we've thrown in a couple gadjets
In the bag there's some mags yep you can have it
U.S. bound in an hour on a tanker
On Her Majestie's Service, you can thank Her"

"But keep this in mind we want him alive
We need evidence, not a coffin to find"
Well I can't promise that but I guarantee this
When I'm gunning for vengeance I never miss

"When you're looking for revenge you better dig two graves"
Well I got two shovels and they've already been made
Cuz this is a case for rough justice
Eye for an eye from the boss I trusted

Sea sickness (ha) just kidding
In the crew quarters hitting up a brand new kitten
But then I get a call from the captain
A battleship outside wants me captive
Whoa sweetheart we gotta halt the play
Just wait a couple minutes while I save the day
Step to the deck looking real pissed
Binocular vision scope the enemy bridge
Yep I'd recognize it in a second
The face of the general that turned me to a weapon
Well then, I know just what to do
Open up the hatch so I can get a better view
Ignition in in the tricked out Bently
Fire pinpoint rockets 'til they're empty
Just watch the fireworks ignite
As the battleship sinks, adios goodnight
The crew gives me a standing ovation
I'm used to this treatment from my occupation
But I got some unfinished business
Back to my quarters and the hot kitten

Well that felt good but it was just a small fish
I'm still gunning for vengeance and I don't miss

"When you're looking for revenge you better dig two graves"
Well I got two shovels and they've already been made
Cuz this is a case for rough justice
Eye for an eye from the boss I trusted
Track Name: The Wings Of Death (ft. Mr. Midnight)
WINGS OF DEATH

Cruising up 93 and I'm gunning
Triple digits in the Bently outrunning
Sirens, growing on my tail
3 and 4 and 5 but they still snails
RPM at 6 whoa way past red
Its about time to be nitrus fed
So I push a blue button on the gear shift
And a rocket comes up from the rear lift
Accelerating in relation with the pace of my feet
Almost elevating and evading the authority fleet
My only competition, is the chopper above
With automatic 50 caliber explosive slugs
Swerving left and right avoiding all the craters on the ground
Dodging all the fire in a mile my target is found
Razor wire laid out for a collision up north
So I eject from the ride, with a jet pack of course

The wings of death are flying over my head
Gun metal in my future last rites have been read
Because I know already that I'm not coming back
My honor won't die with me I'm the best its a fact
The wings of death are flying over my head
Gun metal in my future last rites have been read
Because I know already that I'm not coming back
My honor won't die with me I'm the best its a fact

Propulsion rockets pockets try to shoot me the troops
At supersonic speeds at a thousand feet its no use
Binocular zoom closer approaching head quarters
Boom from the ground, they're firing mortars
Dodge zig zag the fire from all the defenses
Riding above the base passing electrified fences
Mach 3 jet training missiles heat seeking
Kill the engine from my pack and drop a hundred feet in
Luckily I restart it, and break my fall
Crack the sky light and shake the walls
The intelligence apparatus
Is infiltrated by the agent on the black list
Tranquilizing guards in the quest for evidence
Has led me back to my former residence
So I stride through the carpeted corridor
To my bosses door on the executive floor

The wings of death are flying over my head
Gun metal in my future last rites have been read
Because I know already that I'm not coming back
My honor won't die with me I'm the best its a fact
The wings of death are flying over my head
Gun metal in my future last rites have been read
Because I know already that I'm not coming back
My honor won't die with me I'm the best its a fact

Kick down the door, there's no one inside
Checking the perimeter left to right
Boss drops from the top with tear gas clusters
Solar plexus knocked by knuckle dusters
Sharp pain knees buckle fall to my side
Uppercut right to the nuts what a dirty fight
Gasping for breath he spits in my face
"I knew that like a fool you'd come back to this place
You're buried deep in the grave I feel safe to tell
My secret plot that you bought that brought you this cell
We've been purifying the ranks to prep a take over
The League of the Spider the shadow controller
We assassinate those who stand up to us
If you don't sign with us we grind to dust
So our mission is to exterminate you
The best agent left still loyal to the red white and blue

The wings of death are flying over my head
Gun metal in my future last rites have been read
Because I know already that I'm not coming back
My honor won't die with me I'm the best its a fact
The wings of death are flying over my head
Gun metal in my future last rites have been read
Because I know already that I'm not coming back
My honor won't die with me I'm the best its a fact

Eyes of a maniac gun in my face
I know that the jig is up its gonna be my last case
Safety pulled back he laughs "nothing but a chess piece
Move the pawns around to the future that we seek
"We're building a machine called BABYLON
Soon the era of terror will dawn"
So he pulls the trigger back and I hear a gun flash
Close my eyes but I'm still alive as a matter of fact
Then his body falls and I look around
At a lady with a gun and a mic picking up sound
With a soft cool voice she explains to me
A suspect of insanity now its plain to see
Too much pull to be fired from suspicion
SO they had to wait for his criminal admission
Key witness so I gotta sign this
She's in charge of me, and I got a new assignment
Hand on her waist she leads me to her office
Looks the door with a kiss and she gets topless
Don Parignon '57, better than a dime this babe's 11
She gets right down to her birthday outfit
If she's my new boss then I'm all about it
Taking the lead yep we're going full throttle
One hand on her butt the other cracks the bottle
