Track Name: Crowd War
Holding your broken jaw, you wonder why CDC plays so fucking hard/Fuck your phony façade. Don’t care for your fucking image/Face the mirror, you fucking joke, you’re the same as all the others/Television, magazines make up what you are/What the fuck are you trying to prove, your no fucking star/Smash your face with this hate coming from disgust/CDC fraggle rock this is a must/Crowd war/I’ll take the best of you/This is a threat to you from me/When we’re done, lessons learned/I’ll break you, go/Crowd war/Tear you and your friends from bow to stern/Don’t care if I’m 5’11”/155, its all about what’s inside./Channel that energy in a negative way, there’s gonna be a crowd war today.

Never thought I’d end up like I have/But still you pulled me through just like you always do/The high road that led us here/Ideals we all hold near our hearts/We share the hardest times/We all stand for who and what we are/You’re the way you were from the start/The respect I have for you comes from the heart/Love the way you shine, the way you are/Never change it/For my friends/For my family/For the ones who gave me fucking life/For the truth (2x)/Fighting/ For the truth/Dying/For the truth/You throw us lies but we see right through/The way we live is because of you/ Standing close never left behind/You push us down but we smash right through you/For the ones who gave me life

Track Name: Ghetto Ain't Hard, Ghetto is Hell
Lived it up, sucked it up/But your all stuck now, Aren’t you fucked now/48 years old with two kids you don’t know/48 years old got nothing to show/Mothers crying over children’s graves/How many mothers wish that you were dead/Who the fuck are you?/Your raw deal, yeah fuck who you are/ You’re in your mother’s car, your Pablo Escobar/Should have packed up, got out of my town/ Didn’t listen this is how it went down/Reap what I sow, cause I told yah I told yah/Your buggin out is it the crack that they sold yah/Left for the border a minute to late/And now your crying pushin guts with your cell mate/ Who the fuck are you/Do all you can to surround me/I’ll still be pulling my weight/Let all your hatred surround me/And in the end it will lead to your fate/And it goes(3x)/Nowhere no how, see you when you get out/I’ll live on/Won’t forget about the rest of you/About who you were and who the fuck you are/Might be the hardest cats on your block/But there are bigger blocks that will stop you at the top/Your sad existence will bother me no more/We’re glad you’re gone and through my actions we will all live on/I will live on/And I don’t give two fucks about your reputation age/And instigation will only get your habits/Knocked right out the back of your fuckin skull
