Track Name: "Wake Up"
"Wake Up"

Man, I'ma be something/
A grown man's what I'm becoming/
I'm the front man out of three hundred/
We're all over the place like free running/
I trust my gut I don't got a weak stomach/
You aint seen me? You aint seen nothin'/
You don't think I'm it, you got me buggin'/
Put a tip in his cup, he's mean muggin'/
Yeah, I'm just trying to inspire/
networking investors with buyers/
and I'ma blow up/
Like I gotta make the cut and I'm not sure which wire!/
snip, BOOM, give me alot of room/
I swept my girl off her feet without a broom/
my bars finna shine, I'm as hot as noon/
I'm on a high note, no autotune/
truth seeker, lover of the musica/
this game, I'ma run it with some new sneakers/
King Arthur, sitting in his castle, like Eureka/
the realness you speak of/
hasn't gone away, it's right here/
it's closer than it appears like side mirrors/
let 'em say that they don't see me/
'cuz when they're sleeping, I'm their nightmare/

Hook:
Yeah, you got a dream? Better wake up!
You wanna live your dream right? right (4x)

I'm destined for greatness/
I don't say "unless I'm mistaken"/
No, I'm destined for greatness, greatness, greatness"/
Track Name: "Ambitious" (feat. JFeyeVE)
"Ambitious" (feat. JFeyeVE)

Verse 1. (Art Morera)
I'm ambitious/
thought of a plan then got up and ran with it/
follow me man/
the way the music comes together, it outta be banned/
my product as hot as a tan in tropical sand/
I don't sweat obstacles ahead/
nothing in this world is impossible to get/
at first if I didn't get it, I was so upset/
but stress only lead to the domino effect/
we're making the music for the motivators/
I use my middle finger when I say hello to haters/
clean slate homie, I don't even owe a favor/
if opportunity aint here,
what's making you think it'll show up later?/
we run to where the money at/
take the money where we want it to be
to keep the clientele coming back/
My work's worth a couple hundred stacks/
take all the riches in the world,
add 'em up, I want some of that!/

(Pre-Hook)
I'ma get it, get it, I get it get it on time (x3)
I always have money on my mind
(Chorus)
It's kinda like
All that we want is another paycheck
like there's no tomorrow, singin'
All that we want is another paycheck, yeah (yeah)
I'm singin'
All that we want is another paycheck
like there's no tomorrow, singin'
All that we want is another paycheck, yeah (yeah)

Verse 2 (JFeyeVE)

Uh,
They say I'm trippin', I'm over ambitious/
I envision space shippin' through the ozone cap/
I'm prepared to conqure life in five minutes/
the hands of time pullin' on my shirt can't hold me back/
I got drive like the transmission/
I won't stop shiftin' till I'm number one on the podium/
I want my name in the hall of fame/
if it isn't on the plaque I'ma use my Rustolium/
I'm better under pressure, high sodium/
came to break records, where's the lonolium?/
they say I'm sacreligious, my style's holy nuts/
if success is the target, I'm raising up my barrel like petrolium/
homie, I aim high, Winehouse smoking bud/
I'ma man up and face it/
and grab the bull by the horns till I ride it and make it/

(Pre hook)

(Chorus)

Verse 3 (Art Morera)

I see my future looking bright/
wake up in the morning in a robe, spin a globe and book a flight/
with every hook I right, it's like I take shine/
but I'm in my own lane, so just say I took a light/
see, aint nobody stopping us/
so I'ma just stay cool, while getting to my goal, hockey puck/
Do you get it, get it? I thought it was obvious/
they don't got the gut to stomach it, the flow nausia/
see, I know we've been at it for a minute, that's a given/
but we're driven to be doin' what we lovin' for a livin'/
like it was nothin' more vivid/
nothing is forbidden and there's no limit/
so baby, get up and go get it/

(Pre Hook)

(Chorus)
Track Name: "Dominate"
"Dominate"

Uh,
Art Morera
Game

Verse 1

Looking at my life feels
like watching a Sports Center highlight reel
ill, my do or die will it will
kill competition via suicide drills
still the thrill of witnessin' me
it'll give your spine chills, keep your eye peeled
to me, it's ideal
if it's a game that I might steal
put it in a bag with a tight seal
those are big Jordans the foot of mine fills
got a goal and I'm running towards it, through a mine field
I aint tryna slow down, I aint tryna yield
if I get hurt, I know time heals
watch the stop clock, get ready for the shot
you better make a move when a second's what you got, make a move!
fans sweatin' it alot
takin' the athletic path lead him to the top

Chorus
Now, no one ever said it was gonna be easy
No one ever said it was gonna be easy
but when I make a move I'ma dominate
I'ma dominate homie, I'ma dominate (x2)

Verse 2

I'ma dominate, no one's ever taking my spot away
gotta stay training daily wakin' with body aches
alot of pain, to me this is not a game
I'ma have a house with my own hall of fame
Yeah, I'm in the zone like I finna go all the way
never take time off, what the hell's a holiday?
I know the sport so well, I can call a play
me, myself and I is Bosh, Lebron and Wade
focus the lens on your camcord
I rap sorta like nothing but net from half court
something for the fans in the stands to stand for
fly with no passport and crack the backboard, yeah
you aint taking this house, we at war
I'ma snatch yours though, I'm the new landlord
If you wanna play Around The World, I'll give a grand tour
I'm coming in first place on a crash course

Chorus

Verse 3

Who, me? The equivelant to the 2-3
the one that can jump and dunk from where you shoot free's
kept leaping till he grew wings
won a championship and came home with a new ring
but I aint in it for the jewelry
I'ma overcome the limits none of you'll reach
stay dribbling, no pivot in my 2 feet
I know every play written on a loose leaf, no sleep
cuz everybody from the sidelines to the nose bleeds
will be watching me closely
I be like Kobe, on my J-O-B
yo' team's all tied up without going into OT
the top's lonely, but homie you know me
to always be in the air, when am I lowkey?
never, I'm better than any competitor I be the only
MVP in my own league

Chorus
Track Name: "Technology" (12:00AM Remix)
Technology (Remix)

If anything should happen to us, at this altitude
there's a floatation device located under your seats
and an oxygen mask will fall from the compartment above you
at which point, you hold on tight... and you brace for impact

Art Morera's Verse
You see, I told her holler at me whether phone call of chatting
through instant message. I'm split second later automatic
I know you couldn't understand it on top of all the static
every time you drop a status I toss a comment at it
maybe, I'm a common addict and could never drop the habit
when I'm in the group getting the scoop, you wanna add it?
the data is problematic in that it can cause a panic
when they spot the talent that Mayday brought the band with?
Man, with technology it's easy. All I need to transmit,
I get on a beat, in a trance, and ride it like a transit to the fan's ears
even if it's hard for you to stand it, you can't sit
me and my people link up, hit the trees and we stay sharp as an axe is
and we lean on an axis, and we can access
anywhere on the planet with an address
to the average ears, this is what advance is
I don't write nothing down homie, I pad this
my imagination's where the rhyme stash is
I got a drive like flash, if you open up Paint
you can say that's my canvas. You get it? Save.
Track Name: "Spraypaint and Ink Pens (Freestyle)"
Spraypaint and Ink Pens

What you want me to do on this one?

Uh, yeah
Spraypaint and ink pens
I use to write in every color I think in
Art on the mic, like buddy from Linkin
Park, when I spark I hover then I sink in
before my life is over like the covers
that I'm sleepin' under with my lover one beneath it
I'ma get the gold, not the runner up achievement
soul of a champ, though I wonder if my feet fit
if so, then watch me sprint in these kicks
don't blink or squint cuz he's quick
quick like my dream whip in my dream world
that my dream self was seen with
but meanwhile, me and my MC wit
beat repeatin', I write with no ink pen
weeded and drinkin', me myself and I didn't think that
this would be the reason I'm bleedin' breathin'
but believe it, even though my foes wanna see me go, I won't
what tie between them and I on who's the best?
All that's left is my vote
and I root for me as far as mine goes,
that's why my rivals fear my arrival
I came under your radar, fly low
so ahead that you gotta follow
@ArtMorera
I'm not close to them, don't compare us
I'm on a platou
eatin' too much for your plato
my mindstate's like Plato on Pluto
If I had a brand new boat,
I'd probably feel like Noah, who knows
my heart grew cold like walking through a ghost
but you can't stop me from where I'm goin', I'm too close
to being a boss, Hugo
the rest still got a long way to go
kinda like 2pac on rooftops
who got the jugo? I do, you don't
we heavy weight hitters like sumos
you might not think I'm the best yet, but soon though!
I'm from a whole other mundo
yep, ya dude's stoned off that moon dope, man
you can see me if you look into a scope
naw, I doubt it there's alot of Buddha smoke
I got problems and that's what I use to cope
just me in my studio which I paid out of pocket
so all of them due's he owes
is for the road when I'm getting to a toll
you can ask 8ch2O,
it outta hold water if the truth is told
this shit's timeless, both the new and old
know what I'm giving you is gold
Life's a movie yo, in real life
I'm on a UFO playing a human role
of some kid, raised by Cuban folks
reborn christian, getting his jewish doe
who, had him a thought out of the box
no cubicle, I'm something you never knew before
Uh,
Spraypaint and Ink pens
I use to write in every color I think in
Art on the mic like buddy from Linkin
Park, when I spark I hover then I sink in, in
Track Name: "For Now"
For Now

If it's not forever, it's for now.
If it's not forever, it's for now
If it's not forever, it's for now, now, now... (x3)
It's not forever? It might as well be never

It used to be I was the only thing that she saw
now she walks away and she don't look back at all
got me looking back at my flaws
being fake with me, a plastic doll
I chase tail like cats and dogs
had her on all fours, animals, hands to paws
pause, let the fans applaud
I got lines and they catch 'em all,
now back to broad
remember when she started actin' odd?
real cold hearted after we minaj?
she just wanted what's in my sack, Santa Claus
She couldn't hide the look in her eye with camouflage
she had my back, gave me a back massage
but then italian jobbed it, sabotage
I thank God, that I didn't add her on to my tatted arm
cuz then I would've scratched it off
it's get over the fact this shit aint lastin' long
or be at an institution in a room with padded walls
with shrink notes in folders of what I told her
photos, keeping track of me as I get older
my whole outlook looking colder
cold enough to freeze tears pourin' out the eye of the beholder
and whoever's crying on his shoulder
you know what? (what?)
so what? from so many wounds I sow up
working with casino luck
showing me no love
like I'll eat it up by waiters playing violas baby?
I aint paying for it, see, now we go dutch
and I chug a duce, you're single,
you don't need no one, it's cool
neither do I, and after tonight
I have a view like as if before I never knew site
or ever used my two eyes, baby had me too blind
aside from my pupils you can see whoever you like
we were tighter than laces keeping my tennis shoe tied
doin' it big, me and my bitch ready to die
if everything you said was a lie,
I'm alive to tell the story even though you say I'm dead in your eyes
that's why...
(Sample)
"I don't see my in your eyes no more..." (Repeat)
Track Name: "Man On The Moon (Freestyle)"
Man On The Moon Freestyle

"You gotta feel like you're in space..."

I do

Me up here... Me up here
12:00AM

Verse 1 (Art Morera)
I fled from my home planet in an escape pod
and for that, I thank God
because had I stayed, it would've been the death of a star
like Darth Vader
I hope that none of the survivors think I'm a traitor
if they do, they're Art haters
I just wanted to hit a hot spot so
I picked Earth and aimed for the equator
and when I get there,
sooner or later they'll see me as something greater than an invader
look, I just want to be an entertainer
innovator, meet the maker
be like
"Hello world, my name Art and we're all paintings from the illustrator."
but then I crashed.
I walked out in the middle of a crator
wait a minute, this aint Earth...

Chorus (Kid Cudi)
I be that man on the moon
I'm the man on the moon
and I'ma do what I do, so do you hey hey
I'll be posted with a blunt and a brew I do
I'm the man on the moon
I'm up up on the moon

Verse 2 (Art Morera)
I guess I gotta sit on the moon a bit
my lil space ship needs a tune up quick
I wonder what makes y'all humans tick
from here, you look like lunatics
good thing I brought my boom box
might as well take a stroll, I always wanted to moon walk
like Michael Jackson
Yeah, I was a big fan of him back in my home planet
if you have expectations to see me
don't aim for the sky, go past it
catch where I'm blastin' off at
it's not often I'm astronautin'
my back up option,
take rope strapped to my rocket
try and catch a comet,
tie a lassle on it
and ride it's tail back to where I started
damn, that's the hassle of an artist
peep the moon, try to face facts
I aint mad when I wave at y'all and y'all don't wave back
maybe one day we'll link up, blaze sacks
and have a good time bumpin' my space raps

(Chorus)
Track Name: "Devil In A New Dress (Freestyle)"
Devil In A New Dress Freestyle

Verse

I was in the devil's bedroom with the door closed
ended up here from a wrong turn in a fork road
she didn't see me coming, I hid behind a pile of torn clothes
while she was picking out her wardrobe
her and her porn hoes goin' back and forth from
playing dress up, to a corner where they snort coke
looking like they nose dove in a mountain of pure snow
by the closet was scattered panties and pantyhose
she took off her towel from her torso
put on a lacey nightgown and made sure it showed
whenever she would bend over, rocking a short coat
short like halfway down her booty or so
high heels showing off her pedicure toes
horns curled 'round her skull like corn rolls
I've seen her whorin' down by The Orange Bowl
appealing to anybody anywhere, no horoscope
who would've thought the crib I'm in was Lucifer's home
it looked abandoned outside, like its foreclosed
she probably know she aint adorable
a reputation like Satan it aint easy being normal
Satan, Satan, why you so horrible?
What you think you know it all like an Oracle?
whether if you answer yes or no,
if you're so smart you should know the question's rhetorical
Man, what I would give to come across a portal
a warp hole that would take me back to Florida, yo
from making out her conversation like Morse code
I heard 'em say your name and somethin' bout taking your soul!

Put your hands to the constellations
the way you look should be a sin,
you're my sensation
I think I'm trapped here, I'm not escapin'
she got a stairway to Heaven
but she caution taped it, damn
Put your hands to the constellations
the way you look should be a sin,
you're my sensation
I think I'm trapped here, I'm not escapin'
she got a stairway to Heaven
but she caution taped it, man

12:00AM
The magic hour, hour,
the magic hour
Homie why you standin' there with your face screwed up?
Why you standin' there with your face screwed up huh?
Track Name: "U Shoulda B'naire"
"U Shoulda B'naire"

Eyo,
U Shoulda B'naire
Up outta thin air a scenario appeared
I'ma premier it here in your stereo yeah
listen clear while I steer in your ear
be aware, self reflect like you're staring in mirrors
let me see, it was like maybe half a year back
I was listening to Atmosphere tracks
the mere fact that a rap career last a sheer span of what,
seven, eight years then you're here for the love
I had plans in the club
practicing my flow I had to get a hair cut
tonight I had a show,
had to rush, had to roll
so I go to the barber shop
found a spot up in the parking lot
and out of nowhere a Ferrari stopped
a man argued with his female
she fell out the car in shock
and started bursting into tears from how hard she dropped
out of fear, people near went to call the cops
she got up like "What the F-"
fussing and fighting and cussin'
decided to hush, biting her tongue
wiping the blood from the side of her lip
got inside of his whip and they dipped

U Shoulda B'naire
type of thangs women go through
just to do a lil sumn that's cool
man U shoulda b'naire
I know it sounds too good to be true
but I got nothing to prove or lose, man (x2)

I remember this one time (one time, one time) (X4)
Track Name: "Lockjaw (Freestyle)"
Lockjaw

12:00AM

They tried to lock my jaw
cuz what my eyes inside of my sockets saw
I'm on top of my green like soccer balls
so they want to cut holes in my pocket
and watch them objects that I drop in fall
like I'm in a shopping mall
and I can't find my wallet
to see me take a few steps back
from walk to crawl and all
Why you knockin'?
Naw, you know with one phone call it's a problem solved
so why would you want to put yourself in that predicament?
You that sick of me?
You mad at my rhyme? What I kicked I meant
Or you mad at your shine from how quick it went?
I got punchlines, what I'm hittin' I dent
you see, I'm a player I don't sit on the bench
no, flow like superman and when I'm at work is when I switch to Kent
but in the booth, it's the same truth
in my debut, I'll be Babe Ruth
step on the plate, point the bat where I aim to and swing
I'll be back at home base soon
You see, I've been puttin' in work from the crib
get the picture that Art and his room mate drew
we prayed and made moves and God came through, it's crazy!
Look in my eye and say it aint true
Yeah, don't blame me
heads are listening
I'm aiming for you to get the message instantly
yeah, aiming, you get it?
I'm sick with these words that I flip with ease, ya heard?
It should be crystal C-L-E-A-R
lil man got raps but he aint Art
in life nothing holding me back like I play it with a Gameshark
I'ma go hard till the grave yard
till I'm blue in the face, Braveheart
My God, it's like I'm on a computer like Tron
cuz I'ma be an icon
just a mac with an apple with a bite gone
cuz I listened to the words of a python
but I aint livin' like my life long quest
is to right wrongs I did in my past till I'm gone
I'm someone that you can rely on
I'm Art, I just do what I can, Krylon
get people moving like fire alarms
or seeing somebody harmed from a fire arm
can't you see I'm a monster? Leviathan
Nobody on the tip I am on
you can't tell me I'm trying too hard,
the fall gets harder the higher you are
it's easy, it's not like I'm trying too hard
the fall gets harder the higher you are...
Track Name: "The Movie Ends"
The Movie Ends

Supposedly I went Hollywood, my whereabouts?
What, you finna call Paramount?
You want my heart? Go 'head tear it out
while I milk this for what it's worth, dairy isle
I'm so legendary I'll show I'm a cut from another material
feeling aerial, they wonderin' if we actin' or if we're real
the spotlight's here whether not it's really ours
working weary hours, moon howlers
caged under the weight of two tours
my name is Art, my style, I don't need
an A n R to say I'm down to a T
true indeed if I aint sick
I'm everything you would need to be I-M-M-U-N-E
I can hang with the few elite
finna blow like a fuel leak to a spark, Jubilee
You wonderin' what color do I bleed?
I appear to be more than a human being
I'm buildin' they're ruining
there's alot going on when I say I'm doin' me
just do y'all, do what you do asleep
while you're still up for it, persue your dreams
yeah, I'm the shit, a sewer stream
feel free to cut me off if I'm too extreme


Verse 2

At last, like Biggie rappin bout blunts and broads
I promise I keep it honest like I'm talking right in front of God
I'ma kill it even if the audience doesn't applaud
if one of y'all feel it, y'all know who's the illest
the rest, I'm letting marinate before I grill 'em I guess
they say Morera fake like acrylic
but I'm too smart to fail, hard as nails
I'm on fire like chronic that Arty inhales,
mind so sharp it impales
success plays a big part of his tale
I said I'd prevail at the start of this trail
I'm the man, and I'll say it quite clear,
treat my tape like no plans and play it by ear
My whole camp so fly
none of us afraid of heights here
we're up in the air
and I'm a pioneer
I can make anyone big look tinier
whenever I'm near
I can see through the sight seers
without any X Ray eye wear
you can't walk in the shoes I wear
I'm just here building, IKEA
yeah don't get an idea
get ghost like my old crib in Hialeah
you still don't think I'm ill by here?
Maybe you will in another light year
