MIKE (hook)
Doomtree Bangarang / All these rappers sound the same/ Beats? / Sound the same / Raps? / Sound the same / Wings / fan the flames / Teeth / with the fangs / 10 years in our lane / Doomtree Bangarang

When it breaks... / When it breaks we’ll know it’s time / We’ll know it’s up to us to fix it / When it aches to make its mind we’ll pick it / Til then we’ll steer it / Get us near / we’ll swim the distance / Fear after persistence / Kin by cuts with all decisions lived with / Can’t live without by now / that’s why we shout so loud / Couple down / All respect allowed the rest could never doubt / Options offered often / Toss em to the chop em block em hostile dodge em / Keep watch what I been rockin / Whole team with a grip got it / No polish (Hook)

Now underneath this canopy / crumbling insanity / Bellies rumbling hungering for the fantasy / Had to see something come from them / Had to be crushing savagely / Not your average everyday / Nothing short of a masterpiece / And the tortures of the past are like a fortune for the future / We’ve been fortunate enough to know no borders / no rulers / No schools are out of session / no school’s out of the question / No tools will go unused / and no fools will go unmentioned / And there’s a tension in the air we’re breathing / We breathe heavy / we breathe largely / Release the levy / Feel the tension in the air we’re breathing / and breathe heavy / and breathe largely / Release the levy (Hook)

They hate, they petty / They say we too heady, too heavy, too many, too much punk / much too drunk, too much luck, love too much / Yup / But we earned it all / All work til the curtain calls and our time is up / They ain’t got enough / and it burns em up / Before tour and First Ave it was Dillinger 4, Triple Rock, Toki Wright, I Self Divine / Way more than I’ll name drop / but I got y’all when I see y’all / and I’ll keep y’all when the beat stops / I built more than a rap career / I got my family here / But some punks want to jump up / with a sharp tongue and their fronts up / like we got here by dumb luck / but they just want to become us / but that’s what’s up when you come up / I move like a dump truck / Too long on the road and I earn what I hold / but if you want it let me know I can burn your flow liiikkeeee whhahhattt? (Hook)
Track Name: Fresh New Trash
I’ve been making my story while they’re waiting on glory / They speak with strays and got a lot to blame / Alright okay / You’re still yelling out without nothing to say / What you trying to stop the rain? / It won’t let up / it’s no set up / it’s only meta /
Alright okay / Strictly for the flame, I’m like fuck the fame / When it all comes tumbling down / the man built with rubble while you fumbled your crown / Hey, alright okay / because everything is that way, okay?

We share the road with a mutual lack of shame / We share our souls that are suited for laughs and pain / Dancing for acid rain / Fanning the flames underneath us / Hoping it’ll reach us / Coping with the teacups fulla storms / Mean mugs fulla hate / We trudge through the storm / We love to relate / Affiliate / Fake? Never, no way / We shake out of our skin and make the great escape / But, wait… / I need a little less in my headphones / No, wait… / I need a little more in my headphones / No, wait… / Man, I think I’ll just head home / Headstrong reciting every word on my headstone

STEF (Hook)
Let it go / Let it roll on past / Don’t hold back / Understand it’s over before you know
And I’m feeling like fresh new trash / Top of the can, out of the bag, and scattered all over everything / Nothing can last / Beautiful, dash our pursuit of a path / Clear of the garbage hardly / Boss me soft / Watch me scoff / Toss me I just laugh / heavily cough / Stop never / ain’t no shaking me off / I chainsaw walls / Laws for the rich ain’t for me yet / Til it’s warm, we in the corner writing warnings, making bets / You by your lonely making threats / Let you scar my open arms / Try and teach my open head / How you turn yours / Burn more / I just keep the floors full / Unlocked / No score kept / No bullshit

I been boom / I been bust / I rep Doom / til I’m dust / and yes this ship rumbles and rusts / but the engine still runs / it’s all friends here, all love why don’t you roll with us? /A passion, a purpose, a business / it’s personal, witness the cursive it’s written in / crossed t’s and dotted i’s / not allotted lotta time / gotta try to get your lines right / don’t mind that sinister sky / just let the spinnaker fly

We get our songs out / and what we got is what we got / No amount of food is falling out the side of our mouths / Rhymes come out / and the food goes in / If we flop then we don’t win / the label takes an L / This isn’t indie rap / This is 10 years / stress and tears / sweat and fears / Acceptance from our friends and peers / and everything that’s brought us here / It’s written on my face / you can see it when I close my eyes / and sing a Dessa Darling line / the realest thing I never wrote / Quote me anytime / “It’s win, lose or tie” / Still Doomtree til I die / even after death and dirt / Let em know who said it first / and put it on your favorite shirt / Rap Won’t Save You / Sell em absolution with a verse (Hook)
