Chaos And Disorder
"Check check, OK, cool... roll it"

Hey!
Ah (Yeah)

Carjack used 2 fix flat tires ("Get ur ass out here right now!")
Cadillac used 2 b a Benz ("Hey, get out of the street!")
Big joint never gotcha higher
Freebase cost U n the end
Yeah

I'm just a no-name reporter, I wish had nothin' 2 say
Lookin' thru my new camcorder tryin' 2 find a crime that pays
I get hit by mortars, everywhere I go I'm loiterin'
Chaos and disorder rulin' my world 2day
Oh

He's gay used 2 mean he's happy
Nowadays happy ain't allowed ("4ward!")
U're played used 2 mean top 40
("U're listening 2 WNPG and we welcome U all 2 chaos and dis...")
Now 40 days of bein' played ain't proud
Yeah ooh

I'm just a no-name reporter, I wish had nothin' 2 say
Lookin' thru my new camcorder tryin' 2 find a crime that pays
I get hit by mortars, everywhere I go I'm loiterin'
Chaos and disorder rulin' my world 2day
Yeah
Whoo
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

Safe sex used 2 mean no babies when intercourse used 2 mean fun
If I had 50 ladies, I would only fuck with 1

I get hit by mortar, everywhere I go I'm loiterin'
Chaos and disorder rulin' my world 2day
Ahh

Escuchame, no se puede está mas joven que antes (Ooh)
{Listen 2 me, U can't b younger than b4}
Qué es eso que le preocupa al sénor? {What r U worried about, sir?}
Nunca sé la vi yo la señora {I never saw her}
Yeah yeah yeah! (I'm not gonna tolerate U people without a warrant)
Yeah yeah yeah! (Help us, people, rock)
Oh no no!
Huh
Ahh!

Anyone can tell I love ya
Anyone can tell I care
Twice an hour I'm thinkin' of ya
Around ur waist I wanna b there
Ow
Uh, ooh
Ooh

On ur heavenly body I swear

Anyone can see what's come over me
Don't U know it's cuz of U?
I'm n a daze but that's the way it's gotta b
Let me count the ways I'm diggin' U
Diggin' U, baby

All my emotion'll ejaculate on the floor
And what's more, what's more on ur heavenly body, baby

Ah yeah!
On ur heavenly body I swear (Baby, baby)

Dinner With Delores
Dinner with Delores must b some kind of sin
Like a brontosaurus, she was packin' it n
The 1st night we dined and by the next time
This girl was eatin' all but the tip
And by the stroke of midnight she wanted some more ("More")
Showin' dirty movies like some kind of whore
But she was wastin' her time now cuz there wasn't a line
That would make me come around her door

Dinner with Delores must b some kind of sin
Her bell's just-a-broken since 1984
Dancin' like a white girl on disco dirty floors
Damn Delores, pick another subject please
Introduce the carpet 2 somethin' other than ur knees

Like a real confession, no 1 could b more made-up than U
Nothing's left 4 guessin', what a shame, boo-hoo
Ooh
Delores (Ooh)
Delores (Ooh)

I'd call U a friend but it must b a sin
And I've run out of cheeks 2 turn
Dinner with Delores
No more, that's the end

The Same December
Once was this ball with a line straight down the middle
1 side was black and the other 1 white and they both understood so little
That they spent their whole lives tryin' 2 tell each other what time it was
And all along it did not matter what either said because, because...

U only know what U know
U only see what ur heart will show
U only love when ur soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And n the end that's where we'll go, so let's go

Ooh yeah, oh yeah

Once was a golden idol that went 2 the winners
Needless 2 say, it didn't make 'em feel any less a sinner
Cuz the very next morning the whole damn world was the same
Yes it was
The idol's still shinin' but the voice inside
It said, "There ain't no winners n this game"

U only know what U know
U only see what ur heart will show
U only love when ur soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And n the end that's where we'll go, so let's go

Hey

There once was an angel who most certainly watched over me
But if it got me thru the day, is it crazy?

Yeah, I'll b crazy
Until the demons fall as far as anyone can fall
When they reap what they done sowed, I'll b standing tall
We spend our whole lives tryin' 2 dog the other man
When what we need 2 do is try 2 give him all we can

But ah... U only know what U know
And ah... U only see what ur heart'll show
And ah... U only love when ur soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And n the end that's where we'll go, so let's go
Let's go

Right The Wrong
Ow!

An Indian woman buried her grandpa n the Black Hills
When she was young he used 2 tell her that these hills belonged 2 her still
And even though injustice took them hills away
"1 day we'll get 'em back," he said
And the sun's gon' shine that day
When we say, "Right the wrong"

B4 she laid him down 2 rest
She heard his voice n the wilderness
Sayin', "I got 6 feet of it back!" Uh
"Now we can right the wrong"

Right the wrong, hear the song
B4 long U won't hear nothin' but the crackle of flames
Right the wrong, hear the song
Would U rather die knowin' that U did or keep livin' n shame?

Did U hear the 1 about the boy just 17?
3 years hard time 4 stealin' ice cream
1st offense and all his dreams r gone
How long b4 we right the wrong?

Right the wrong, hear the song
B4 long U won't hear nothin' but the crackle of flames
Right the wrong, hear the song
Would U rather die knowin' that U did or keep livin' n shame?
Right the wrong

1 2 3, uh
1 2, 1 2, come on!
Right the wrong, baby!
Yeehoo!
Ow!

Far b it 4 me 2 say
It seem like we could stop the flow of snow n the sky 2day
But I guess the weather man, he likes the rain
Ain't that insane?
Now sing

Right the wrong, hear the song
B4 long U won't hear nothin' but the crackle of flames
Right the wrong, hear the song
Would U rather die knowin' that U did or keep livin' n shame?

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon! (Right the wrong)
Ooh
Can U hear me, baby? (Right the wrong)
I'm 6 feet n the grave, I'm 6 feet n the grave! (Right...)
Right the wrong {repeat}

Ashes 2 ashes, dust 2 dust
This young man with a talented soul died when he wanted
The life that lives should not b pitied
Nor shall the guilty b 4given
Until they can find it n their hearts 2 right the wrong

Zannalee
"Yeah Sarge, we just received a call, we got a disturbance on Galpin"
Relay then go check it out
"Really? Oh jeez"

Well, her name is Zannalee, I like what she do 2 me
Her name is Zannalee, I like what she do 2 me
She got a sister named Fendi and they like 2 do me double-team

2 get 'em n the mood, I give 'em some cherry wine
2 get 'em n the mood, I give 'em some cherry wine
Then we play some pool and they watch me bank the 6 and the 9
Watch me bank it, baby
Whoo

"Yeah Sarge, we're outside the house now
I can see 'em thru the window there"
"Hey there"
What's it look like?
"Well, I can see... oh jeez, look at that"
"Ah ah"
What's goin' on?
"Uh, nothing Sarge, 10-4"

If U wanna headline, U gotta b all U can b

Because I b comin' from the heart of Minnesota
Much flava 4 many years
And when it come 2 music, the soul's gon' getcha

Somebody sellin' 12 CDs 4 a dollar (Hahaha...)
Make me wanna holler (Yeah)

Ready set 2 blow up like Mount St. Helen

Adult maids on the 'vard give up hope
Grab the devil by the throat, make 'em play the scapegoat (Rock)
And the women with the bucket of cutless
Wishin' I had duckets 2 live like Kirby Puckett (Rock)
Here comes the rumors, I'm down with NPG
I signed the contract, I'm doin the LP
But whoa, wait a minute bro, go slow
10 dollars 4 the blow, no dollars 4 the ho! (Rock)
N the club drink holdin'
Lookin' 4 a black magic woman gettin' strong with dick holdin'

I rock, therefore I am (Rock...) {repeat}
I rock, therefore I am, yeah
Rock {repeat}

Into The Light
From out of the darkness b4 there was time
There came a sound that enters the mind
Thru a door that's deep n ur soul
Thru every pore of ur body it goes
And n a light 2 bright 2 behold
Is the truth more shiny than gold
And as sure as this candle burns
Every soul must return n2 the light, n2 the light

From out of the light there comes a story
Open ur mind and feel the glory
What's the hurry 2 die without tryin'?
If U could sell ur worries, would anyone buy 'em?
Oh no!
4 every flower that grows (Grow)
Even a baby knows (Know)
That as sure as the candle burns
Every soul must return n2 the light, n2 the light

I Will
Mmm

I will walk this road
I will, I will
It's gonna b hard but I know
I will, I will
People come and they go
But I'll still, I'll still face up 2 the truth and just grow
I will, I will

I will fight this fight
I will, I will
I will sleep 2night
I will, I will
I've been down b4 (Oh, I've been down b4)
But I'll still, I'll still remember what I came 4
I will, I will

I will get 2 U
I will, I will
And then I'll help U get thru
I will, I will
U've preyed on many a fool
Until, until no 1 cared about U
But I will, I will (I...)
I will

Dig U Better Dead
Whoo
Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead (I'd dig U)
Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead (Oh)
Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead (I'd dig U)
Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead

A long time ago U took 6 months of walkin'
Talkin' on the other side (Ooh)
What started as an experiment turned n2 a heaven-sent
Message that saved ur ass from dyin'

Somebody said, "N life there's always peaks and valleys (Oh)
And if U're lost, they won't show U the way" (Whoa)
That same somebody said, "I'd dig U better dead
But I'd much rather see if ur God is what U said, said, said" (Oh)

And with an awesome power they struck
1st they offered up the buck (Oh)
Right n the middle, right n the middle they stuck (Oh, right n the middle)
A toke or 2, what the fuck? (What the fuck? Yeah, 1 minute)
1 minute U're hot
Tell the truth and U're not
That's the noose that they hang on a goose like U

Somebody said, "N life there's always peaks and valleys
And if U're lost, they won't show U the way"
That same somebody said, "I'd dig U better dead
But I'd much rather see if ur God is what U said, said, said"

Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead
Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead
Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead
Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead

And whatever U do, don't make somebody happy
Don't dress 2 freaky and make their daughters stare
Then U will find out how deep the valley truly b
If U plan on catchin' a bus, U better have plenty fare

Somebody said, "N life there's always peaks and valleys
And if U're lost, they won't show U the way"
That same somebody said, "I'd dig U better dead
But I'd much rather see if ur God is what U said, said, said"

Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead
Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead
Dig, dig, dig U better dead, dig, dig U better dead

Somebody said, "N life there's always peaks and valleys
And if U're lost, they won't show U the way"
That same somebody said, "I'd dig U better dead
But I'd much rather see if ur God is what U said, said, said"

I'd dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead
Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead
Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead
Dig U better dead, I'd dig U better dead
