[Intro]
What up doe? It's your boy Murs. And on behalf of Josh Blaylock, Jose Garcia and my homie Foundation...we'd like to welcome you...to Yumiko: Curse Of The Merch Girl. Huh. Welcome

[Verse One]
In the beginning, the pages are void
The story here begins with a girl and a boy
Everything was bliss every moment was in joy
Never once thinkin' that it'd all be destroyed
But this boy had a band and this band had a buzz
They played a lot of local spots and rocked at every club
The girls around town thought that Dom was a scrub
But she saw Dom for the star that he was
Supported everything Dom did to the fullest
Stay when she shouldn't even put up with his bullshit
That's because she knew that he was brilliant
And even if he never made a million
He'd still be the father of her children
Nothing could come between them and the future they were buildin'
And pretty soon a record deal was in the works
But he told her not to worry she would always come first

[Hook]
And ain't love just beautiful?
Especially when the person's brand new to you
Before the bullshit that they put you through
They have you runnin' 'round doin' things you don't usually do
And ain't love just grand?
The true bond between a woman and a man
That brief time right before you understand
That this motherfucker's selfish and they don't give a damn
And ain't love so special?
Till them hard times start to test you
Now all they ever do is stress you
But started off tryin' real hard to impress you
And ain't love the shit?
Especially when you don't know who you fuckin' with
Soon as they violate your trust you're sick
So you throw it all away like "fuck this shit"

[Verse Two]
The bus pulled up, the biggest they ever seen
Their first real tour, something right out a dream
Dom brought his girl she was part of the team
Besides, where would a king be without his queen?
And the crew didn't mind, she was around all the time
And separating the two of them would definitely be a crime
She cooks and she cleans, does it all for the band
But not for the team, she does it all for her man
Now they get to see each other like all of the time
But for Dom that's a little bit too much quality time
He used to hit the studio when she would go to work
Now every night they do a show she's there doin' merch
Really, he just wants a little space
Cause the groupies love his group they throwin' pussy in his face
He knows no one can take her place
He just wants to have a fun, he just needs a little taste

[Hook]

She's So Lost

length: 4:01

Her name is Yumi
The one they call "Groupie"
Since she's at every single show they're assuming
She gotta be screwing, somebody in the band
But she's into the music, she ain't tripping off a man
The scene was itty bitty, and in this little city
You can't sing along to songs and be pretty
They threw on they skirts, she threw on some pants
They put on they heels, she slipped on some Vans
Her tone was tan, a beautiful blend
Latin/Asian/American with beautiful skin
Honestly she was born to date a lead singer
Never once worried about the trouble he would bring her
She was in love, he was in lust
But we know a starving artist is so hard to trust
He stole her heart, then took it for a spin
Now it seems the world is revolving around him

And she's so lost
Forgot which way is up
Down so long it seems like she's stuck
Down for anything that'll change her luck
Once you hit rock bottom man, enough is enough

And she's so lost [echo]
And all she ever needed
Was someone to be believe in
Search so long for something to give it meaning
Only 19 and, for love she was fiending
Gave it all to him
For no good reason
And he was seasoned, so took advantage
Scumbag, womanizer, fronting like he's manish
A little boy trying to figure it out
Overconfident, a complex littered with doubt
He was someone she never thought of living without
Until she found him with that bitch and his dick in her mouth
Now she wants to castrate him, throw his dick in his mouth
So she threw a few blows, started bitching him out
But he don't understand what she tripping about
Says that he only cheats because she's always flipping out
The road to womanhood, yet this is the route
But for now, a little girl trying to figure it out

And she's so lost
Forgot which way is up
Down so long it seems like she's stuck
Down for anything that'll change her luck
Once you hit rock bottom man, enough is enough

And she's so lost [echo]

On Your Own

length: 3:14

[Verse One]
Now who the gods wish to kill, they first make crazy
That's why it always seen like they fuckin' with you baby
No delusions, ignore the illusions
Lead with your heart and avoid the confusion
Them obstacles just don't exist
When you're livin' with a love that's as pure as this
It all changed when she hit the sticks
Sorta like when all the demons escaped from the pit
It gets deep
The torment creeps
She's torn between the worlds of the awake and asleep
But peep game there's no one to blame
We're all just pawns, a face with no name
I admit, it's a shame how it went down
So strange, the path she was sent down
But have faith it'll all work out
Even though you're not traveling the perfect route

[Hook] {X2}
And you wonder what they want from you
Why won't they leave you alone?
Beware cause the path is shown
Make one wrong move and you're on your own

[Verse Two]
And home girl they just tryin' to tell you
About all the bullshit that life can sell you
You trusted in a man and of course it fell through
Now you one step from a cell in Belleview
Cause they can't see what you see
And your friends ain't always who you want them to be
Listen close and make wise choices
Sometimes angels disguise they voices
And the demons gone ??
Frames and facades that'll leave you enraptured
They tryin' to capture your soul
Well hold on, don't lose control
The goal never greater than the sum of your journey
Be easy, enjoy what you're learnin'
Embrace this brand new world
And who knows, we might just save you girl

[Hook]

[Verse Three]
And when your friends true colors do start to shine through
Don't let their faults define you
Trust you and no one else
You can only trust others to be themselves
All power ain't good and all magic ain't bad
Now you trapped in the illest dream you ever had
Half of what you see and none of what you hear
Open up your heart now the truth is clear

[Hook]

Eye for an Eye

Gods Gone Crazy

length: 5:13
2012 the Mayan disaster,
Keep one eye on your government the other on your pastor,
Religious folks live in fear of the rapture,
Me, I'm just thinking about what's going to happen after,
Do we begin a new chapter?
Do I get to face off with God like Castor?
Will he answer all my questions?
Fully take my suggestions?
The reverend said never question, have faith,
A man without faith is worthy of god's hate,
But if god feels emotion is he safe to trust?
And if god does hate then does he hate us?
So much pain and suffering,
So many people struggling but still have love for him,
A miracle in and of itself,
Living in poverty with spiritual wealth,
It's hard not to be amazed by that,
So do you live your life on faith or based on fact?
Was god watching when they shot my homie dead,
In front of the church in the back of his head?
With that said, I'm still alive making bread,
So I'm guessing its a blessing that his daughters stay fed,
When things go bad then the devil gets the cred,
But when everything is right it goes to god instead,
Or is there even just one,
A god of the sea and a god of the sun,
We frown on polytheism,
But in our schools we still teach Greek wisdom,
What about the Egyptians?
They served many gods while charting the solar system,
Are the gods just selfish?
Or too busy to help us?
Was Olympus just one big club,
Where the gods got to party and the mortals got snubbed?
Are we just pawns to be pitied,
While they play a divine game of vice city?
Are they really all the same?
Just one god with a bunch of different names,
Who's to praise it and who's to blame?
To whom goes the glory and to whom the shame?
An Israeli walks into a masjid,
AK 47 in hand blastin,
Murder many while they were making salah,
Turned around and left the temple, he was shot,
Is Allah not victorious?
Is jah way not glorious?
Is it a sin to be curious?
The way religious separates us all makes me furious,
We're at war, we're the half of the unseen,
So much blood on our hands, we are unclean,
Murdering in the name of your god is still murder,
Call it crusade or jihad, it's still murder,
Who deserves the right to decide,
Whether one human being lives or it dies?
Is it in the eyes of a holy man?
A pedophile that's protected by the Vatican,
So sick and self righteous,
How can you place your faith in men like this?
When none of us knows for sure,
And that's what makes a man of faith so pure,
Never debate with such difficult men,
It soon becomes a battle of invisible friends,
When none of us will know until the end,
And when you're gone you can't come back to tell your friends,
You won't know until it's too late,
Wasting time stressing guessing Armageddon's due date,
I won't worship a god that hates,
That won't support the right to abort after rape,
Did we really come from apes?
Did the earth just take 6 days to create?
He rested on the 7th, I'm gonna rest on this,
Without our belief then god don't exist,

Is anybody out there?
Do the gods even care?
Are they even aware?
Or are they just caught up in their own affairs?
Is anybody out there?
Do the gods even care?
I swear it's just not fair,
All I have is my doubt and some unanswered prayers,

Yeah but basically man, I'm not trying, like, to get in anybody's faith or nothing. But why battle me over something none of us can prove? It's not like math. It's not a fucking science. It's literally your faith, so keep your faith and live a good life and leave me the fuck alone.

Have the gods gone crazy?
Honestly yo it wouldn't amaze me,
Cause with all I've seen lately,
I've started thinking just maybe,
Maybe they have lost their minds,
Or are we just living at the end of times?
They say it's part of some grand design,
Sometimes I be thinking that it's all in our minds,
Have the gods gone crazy?
Honestly yo it wouldn't amaze me,
Cause with all I've seen lately,
I've started thinking just maybe,
Maybe they have lost their minds,
Or are we just living at the end of times?
They say it's part of some grand design,
Sometimes I be thinking that it's all in our minds,

Your holy books can't save me,
The gods have gone crazy,
The gods have gone crazy,
The gods have gone crazy,
Tell your pastor come debate me,
The gods have gone crazy,
The gods have gone crazy,
The gods have gone crazy.

[Verse 1]
The legend says that his name brings fame
To any soul willing to pay the price of the game
Risk so much to gain so little
The devil always plays both fins against the fiddle
He's been around for years, deceiving, receiving
As soon as you think you're getting even, he's leaving
Greed and lust are the tools that he uses
Manipulating men in any way that he chooses
The law of run, is no fun
They only teach the shortcut where he comes from
You cash out quick and hopefully leave a cute corpse
No consequence to a life cut short
Life after death, it belongs to him
The end is never sweet and what you reap is grim
They say you can't cheat death and you can't cheat him
The end is never sweet when the reaper's in

[Hook]
We live fast, we die young
We buy coke, and tote guns
Why walk, when you can run
Since we all gotta die then why not have fun
We live fast, we die young
We buy coke, and tote guns
Why walk, when you can run
(Run, run, run, run)

[Verse 2]
The cars, the cash, the chicks, the weed
Name anything you want and he's got what you need
The "M" is for materialistic, he brings mass amounts of money to the misfits
Mortal men trying to match his greed
But they wind up dead because they don't take heed
He misleads them, he misguides them
His passion is power and it won't be denied him
He was in love once, if you could call it that
Took what he wanted and he never did call her back
But then again he was fucking with the goddess
Hell hath fury but a fire burns the hottest
A goddess, scorned, vengeance now born
Beware of her wrath the wise men once warned
Mortals play pawn while the gods keep score
They says alls fair when true love is at war

[Hook]
We live fast, we die young
We buy coke, and tote guns
Why walk, when you can run
Since we all gotta die then why not have fun
We live fast, we die young
We buy coke, and tote guns
Why walk, when you can run
(Run, run, run, run)

[Outro]
(Run, run, run, run, run, run)

Falling in Flames

length: 3:08
He pops bottles pops pills pops music
Paper cost a kidney pop it till it get real

He always said that he would get to the top
Now that he got the world watching hope he know when to stop
Gave it all you have to give and push yourself to the limit
Forgot about the music now it's all about image
Never had much so you gotta forgive him
They seeing all in this world about narcotics and women
Never though about the finish he was focused on fame
But everybody was a star when he was falling in place
He never had a tan on his arm
Now he got a full sleeve and a number 1 song
Fuck it! He's learned'em all go on sniffing his dog
Nowadays ain't no telling what kind of shit he's on

He pops bottles pops pills pops music
Paper cost a kidney pop it till it get real
He'd been dreaming bout this moment since he got his deal
Sold his soul for some pussy in the hottest wheels
Now he in there talking bout he selling millions
Used to watch on TV all the sudden catching feelings
They say they feel them say they wanna have his children
Now he fronting like he king but he just got in the building
But locks and the life and the fame got thousands of groupies just screaming his name
This all he ever used to dream about
Don't last long cause about to let the demons out

He always said that he would get to the top
Now that he got the world watching hope he know when to stop
Gave it all you have to give and push yourself to the limit
Forgot about the music now it's all about image
Never had much so you gotta forgive him
They seeing all in this world about narcotics and women
Never though about the finish he was focused on fame
But everybody was a star when he was falling in place

He had a girl that was holding him down
But the stupid ass thought that she was holding him down
She said 'Heavy is the head that is holding the crown'
He ain't hearing her, he happy when the hoe not around
I try to halla like homey slow down
But he's no longer underground sp he don't know my ass now
And night after night after night after night
He fucks hoes with his bros and gets high as a kite
He know that it's wrong but it's feeling so right
Cause he know that he's here for the fight of his life
It's almost time for the debt to be called in
They open up the pit hoping that he fall in
He didn't fall he jumped and went all in
Now he owes it all to the one that they call all Him
And that's some serious debt his girl Yumi tried to tell him
He ain't hearing her yet

He always said that he would get to the top
Now that he got the world watching hope he know when to stop
Gave it all you have to give and push yourself to the limit
Forgot about the music now it's all about image
Never had much so you gotta forgive him
They seeing all in this world about narcotics and women
Never though about the finish he was focused on fame
But everybody was a star when he was falling in place
