  • "A World Only Gods Know" Limited Edition Compact Disc [4 REMAIN]
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Of the greatest musical experiences I had growing up was the opening of my newly purchased CDs. I used to love defying all laws of physics to rip the stickers off the plastic, placing them lovingly back onto the jewel case, and then reading every word within the liner notes. The pictures, the art, and sometimes the lyrics all were part of the experience of listening - It created a connection with the artists and in many ways validated our purchase. With streaming sites taking away this experience, Alpha & I wanted to return that feeling to our fans with this limited edition compact disc.

    This limited edition CD comes with a 20 page color cover booklet filled with lyrics and exclusive artwork from Theotis Jones (Marvel, The Combat Jack Show). In addition, the CD itself comes with THREE exclusive records that will NOT be released online:

    -'Black Zombie,' "Company Ft. Big V & Juspaul,' and "Ceasar.'

    A purchase of a hardcopy will also give you access to an immediate DL of the digital version of the album, which includes the two digital bonus records, giving you all of the records we deemed worthy of "A World Only Gods Know."

    Includes unlimited streaming of A World Only Gods Know via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

They move in the dark but my night vision see em Running from the police I ain't with that First two steps they shoot ya ass in the back For that - I carry that Mac keep it concealed God telling me don't do it he know I will So I chill get my license back jump back in my whip Put the blunt between my lips and I dip Flip to another day and time when my life ain't on the line You live for the Devil or the divine… Yeah… Cuz even sinners got prices That's why I'm trying to deal with all my vices Hook

Verse: (Scorcese) Mama, Mama I had to write had to fight, I'm a fighter Let's go twelve rounds don't think about it Let me speak my peace ain't no shame about it Hate you cause you should have quit Flushed me away I'm a piece of shit Washed your hands but you never did Now I'm pissed as fuck from all the shame I get Hate you cause you love me, that love is unconditional The charges, the fuck ups that love still unconditional I know I'm sounding cynical, but how I'm supposed to match this? Almost died at six months but you save me from a casket Chicken pox, sickle cell, grand theft auto in a county jail You was right there and I mean right there Now I'm living my worst nightmare Cancer cells, chemo treatments Blind to your pain but you see no evil Going insane while you sleep so peaceful Ask me to pray but that seem so fecal But I, losing you wasn't worth my pride I held my tongue when you met my eyes Let you speak then I mumbled amen As you went back to sleep I just started thinking Hook: (Scorcese) Wrote a letter to my mama, tell her why I hate her Said I know you love, always used to say this Why settle for average? You could be the greatest All I bought was sadness, you never repaid it Tell me why I'm worth it? Swear I'm feeling worthless Know I don't deserve you, but this whole world do Oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why Why I hate my Mama... Verse: (Scorcese) Sacrifice, Sacrifice used to complain about eggs and rice Cube steak was a gourmet meal she flipped and chopped no samurai In the dark you candlelight, First bundle you found that Kicked me out, that’s aight, 30th street, long nights Two jobs, no sleep, sacrifice for my prom night But I tricked em all, I tricked it all Shopping spree, I spent it all Kiss lemme see that scale cuz Gotta weigh all the pain I caused We gon make it off the strength of you Shoulder loads like it's ten of you Times ten, times ten, triple that number Then times ten These ain't lyrics they real life Painting these pictures no still life But there's still nights when I lay awake Whole christmas on layaway Two more payments you laid off Bounced back, made a way Took a charge no fadeaway Now bills due, our rents due Your selfish son just steals from you All because he fiends for new pairs of shoes Fuck up after fuck up but my Mama's love is still proof Fuck up after fuck up but my Mama's love is still proof Hook

Intro: (Big Rube) You already know what it is… Alpha… That boy Scorcese… This is a World Only Gods Know... Verse: (Scorcese) Goodbye life, goodbye to my seeds Hope I watered your strengths, nurtured your dreams Hope I, provide understanding, tried to be a better man Proof in the pudding grab the spoon from the devil's hand Dig in, just desserts to display your worth My main course was diverted no my hungers worse Reminded, times I hunted through my mother's purse Appetite destructive - but I'm built to serve Naive - thought my career and my degrees Could nullify the emptiness Jealousy she's a petty bitch swing and miss at love Buckled by the very pitch - a curveball You don't understand ya'll Running from my pain with my mutherfucking pants off I passed off depression with obsession Ironic how I teach but never learned the lesson No difference- between the weed and the Lord's blessing Divorce religion, embrace my kids Full circle came back to them In the cave they the light Young plato when I grip the mic, y'all niggas scary spice Old washed up dancing bitches, never pose for pictures I'm supposed to be the one you don't need descriptions Hook: (Scorcese) Ain't no hook on this bitch I just wanna say Goodbye Life And ain't no love in this bitch I just wanna say Goodbye Life Celebrate your wins, learn from your losses Die small time or become a Colossus Goodbye Life Good...bye… life Verse: (Scorcese) Apologizes in order, to my aborted daughter If it was up to me you would breathe Comfortably Feel ya touch like a summer breeze If you existed at all, I'd prolly be a better me Only ghost I ever claimed to see Goodbye Life, this next line for Speez Pursuing perfection paralyzes, Time waits for no man You a demigod, the world in your hands Be a skyscraper -penthouse, never the basement Ya talent is a gift to share never waste it Mama said glimpse the future reach for it, embrace it But rushing leads to tragedy so have patience hard to pace a spaceship when you hungry Or bit of more than you can chew… You'll catch that later in a quiet moment, this is my atonement This a violent bonus... This ain't alpha to omega this is Alpha x Scorcese Break: (Big Rube) Sometimes you the bug and sometimes you the windshield Sometimes you feel you walking dead you shoulda been killed Think its cool to say shit got real nigga it’s been real Played yourself making monkey ass moves you shoulda been still The chance remains to break the chains of ignorance that still binds you To the weight of all your sorrows and the darkness in your heart that blinds you So truth’s light can illuminate and elevate your mind too And strengthen your resolve to put the worst in life behind you And say goodbye to an existence of sadness and depression Joyless days, restless nights, hopelessness and missing blessings What’s the lesson? The path of least resistance causes weakness Turns the strongest, most aggressive of us into the meekest To say ‘Goodbye Life’ doesn’t mean you saying goodbye to living What it means is we can no longer accept simply existing Hook Verse: (Scorcese) My day 1s ain't my A1s, fucking serpents look what they become It ain't these fucking drugs got my brain so numb It was you and only you, supposed to be crew Supposed to be gang… fake hugs and handshakes, got me going insane Cuz I shoulda felt it, that shift was seismic We split over nothing Humpty Dump niggas never on top Quick to fall when the pressures on Can't put this back together, guess thems the breaks So lemme stop… lemme off Y'all niggas screwed like a bottle cap Wins coming out my pores lemme bottle that Fast lane dip the curves lemme throttle that Did the right thing nigga where my karma at? Told Alph winner's circle where we stopping at We tighter than a stocking cap, police still harass us Niggas turning caspers, all we got is us A World only Gods Know, All we got is us Zips til my heart cold, all we got is trust Plus... Place my bust next to Biggie, Sean P & Prodigy If it's gotta be it's gotta be Force of Nature, Firm Philosophy Probably…
