Track Name: X-Nation (feat. MoldyGold)
So you copped "Enter Kid A"
You watched a couple of vids
Now you leaning on me,
Think you can hang with the kid?

I wouldn't have got this way
from pushing electronics.
Some bags, some boards,
a couple hundred thousand comics.

Back in the day,
when you was bumping The Chronic
I was chilling at home,
with Dr. Mario and Sonic.

What's that make you mad?
To rhyme chronic with sonic?
Well I can do what I want,
cause I'm the master of Phonics.

Castle Greyskull, shit
I got the power.
The sword of Thundara,
little pussies, straight cowards.

Avengers got their mansion,
and Stark has got his tower,
Still be casting my shadow,
cause now is the hour.

You never heard me before?
Best you get in the know.
I'm the letter and law,
as above, so below.

The little kid from KS,
with the permanent grin,
Don't want to go toe to toe?
Best to let the wookie win.

X-Nation, X-Nation.
Come on everybody living in the X-Nation.
X-Nation, X-Nation.
Come one and all we living in the X-Nation.

X-Nation, X-Nation.
Come on everybody living in the X-Nation.
X-Nation, X-Nation.
Come one and all we living in the X-Nation.

I may look black and look white,
but it's a world of grey lines.
And it rains on the just,
just like it gives us all kinds.

So don't be quick to judge,
cause another cam before me.
See I'm a watcher in life,
so do your best to ignore me.

Just living the X-life
with my crew the X-Men.
Don't know what's in the next life,
but till then, I'm all in.

So you can call me a freak,
or just a sorry mutation,
but it's a matter of fact,
You're living in the X-Nation.

Listen up X-Ladies,
and all you X-Gents.
We got some fresh blood coming,
got some new mutants.

There aint no gene-trash here,
just the finest, first class.
We at the top of our game,
if you aint first than your last.

What you need a bigger sign?
I'l conduct a symposium.
We got the Proff on our side,
and all those X's who role with him.

We brought down monsters and gods.
You think we scared of your gun?
You want to cross the X-Nation?
I got one word for you, run.

RUN!
CAUSE MUTANTS GOT SHUNNED
BY HUMANS TOO NUMB
TO KNOW WHAT THEY’VE DONE
USIN EM FOR
SELF-PRESERVATION AND WAR,
ACCUMULATION OF FUNDS
MY MUTATION'S MAKIN MY TONGUE
TWIST AND INCREASIN THE INTAKE OF MY LUNGS
SO IT AIN’T A CHORE TO SPIT HEAT ON THE BREAKS AND THE DRUMS
WHATEVER YOUR MUTATION
DON’T LET ‘EM MAKE FUN
BE PROUD TO BE ONE OF THE X-NATION

X-Nation, X-Nation.
Come on everybody living in the X-Nation.
X-Nation, X-Nation.
Come one and all we living in the X-Nation.

X-Nation, X-Nation.
Come on everybody living in the X-Nation.
X-Nation, X-Nation.
Come one and all we living in the X-Nation.
Track Name: Leaving Las Vegas
It's the K-A,
the true believer.
Never gonna be another,
so play the griever.

Way things are going,
gonna be like a dinosaur.
Branded for extinction,
and it's getting me kinds sore.

Ain't gonna be another crisis
or end game.
I've read em all before,
man, they all end the same.

Remember Remender?
That's what their sure to say.
Working for the "big two",
no way they're gonna make him stay.

Where does that leave me?
No kind of legacy.
After Manhattan,
they think they got me pegged.

See I don't want a ret-con,
I'm sick of do-overs.
Praying to the dollar,
gets the loyal screwed over.

Another Axis and Allies,
a war that''s at a summit.
Scratch that, back to one,
now watch the numbers plummet.

The lesson's in the open,
but they learn too late.
Take it from Apoc,
leave nothing to fate.

Now I pull myself aside,
and say I got what it takes.
Try to focus on the ride,
not these phonies and fakes.

All these little crabs that scuttle,
making fun of my voice.
Latching on to bigger men,
like they aint got a choice.

It's the power of the heart,
like fucking Captain Planet.
When my power combines,
you'd be lucky if you could stand it.

My life is like a movie,
shit, everyone's a critic.
Try to put out some good,
and they just hit it and quit it.

Like I've done nothing before,
like my lifetime of work,
is little more than a bore.

You think you have what it takes?
I'd like to see your credentials.
Try to keep that in mind,
cause my point is essential.

You're just a face in the crowd,
and a voice in the sea.
You better have what it takes,
you coming at mine and me.

I try to spit only peace,
try to practice what I preach.
I've been known to be wrong,
won't always grasp what I reach.

It's not occasional trolls,
it's the constant white noise.
It's the ever-rising tide,
a total lack of real poise.

It's the high watermark,
where the wave finally broke.
And forever rolled back,
and that's the end of the joke.

I'm nothing more than a freak,
still in the freak kingdom.
Thought we had a kill shot,
all we really did was wing him.

Now I'm leaving Las Vegas,
here's my final goodbye.
I'm too weird to live,
and too rare to die.
Track Name: Wheat Cakes and Aunt Mays
It's the Merc with a Mouth
Feeling super man, Brandon Routh
and though I'm known to be a bit un-cowth
I’m told that's not how the word's pronounced
Fuck it, I’m bound to expound a lot
on any gaudy thought
out loud or in a yellow caption box
I’m not proud, I filmed with Will.I.Am and Fox
But I made amends when I filmed another origin all over again

And I’ve been killing every villain maybe ten or twenty billion
maybe I lose count
It’s a skill I’ve been shilling unless I’m feeling ill
but otherwise I’m down
Load another round, tales to astound
out about town putting bosses in the ground
Yup I clown, upside frown
lend an ear like the one that Kyle Maclaughlin found

Here’s the part where we get meta as fuck
come watch my movie double feature with Howard the Duck
I mean we’re watching both movies with Howard the Duck
I mean unless I guess it’s on VHS we’re only watching his
and with a different duck

I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
Get wheat cakes from Aunt May and Blind Alfred
I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
I make all the girls twerk like I twerk let me go ahead
I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
Get wheat cakes from Aunt May and Blind Alfred
I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
put a bullet in your mullet and another in your forehead

(Kid Apocalypse)
I don’t give a fuck, that’s what Uncle Wade said
wait, gotta keep good behavior running through my head
doesn’t matter if morality is virtually bred
it’s the evil I reject and the good I do instead

Well said, hey kid, you’re a spectacle,
got me buggin’ guess I better call the pest control
you’re wearing armor ‘cause your tailor’s a celestial
I’m repping Weapon X so better not molest me, yo
Friend or foe, Willem Dafoe
I’m gobbling up all the green that you send me so
don’t offend me bro
Ryan Reynolds?
You know I’m wilder in the van, I’m invulnerable
So Ima burn a bowl until we blow the whole
roleplay bull though it’s so improbable
and though I’m on a roll, I’m gon feed the trolls
I got the mothball tongue like my mouth is full

Here’s a placeholder for the rap that goes here
I need to come up with the words and perform them here
Something clever and cool, something intelligible
Full of references to Marvel, keep it profitable

I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
Get wheat cakes from Aunt May and Blind Alfred
I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
I’ll rock the Jean Grey School, get some tacos with a co-ed
I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
Get wheat cakes from Aunt May and Blind Alfred
I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
Bea Arthur lives forever in my heart and in my head

(sung)
Bea Arthur, golden goddess
flying over clouds above us
eating tacos, angel tacos
that died without sin

Can I heal from everything, even hearing Black Bolt sing
Asshole with Mandarin rings gonna lose his fingers and his bling
Red and mean, all I’ve seen,
Thunderbolt Hulk being real obscene,
“Hey Derring, hail to the king
Hail to my ever-lovin’ one-eyed Thing”
It’s slobberin’ time, so here’s a moderate rhyme
‘cause it’s a possible crime to be as awesome as I am
toss ‘em in sauce and gloss ‘em up and ignite ‘em
then we’ll call up Colossus for the cinema tie-in
tell him I don’t give a fuck about what Uncle Ben said

“I’m preparing this rice my way.”

I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
Get wheat cakes from Aunt May and Blind Alfred
I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
Thanos brung me from the dead ‘cause his girl is loving me instead
I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
Get wheat cakes from Aunt May and Blind Alfred
I don’t give a fuck what Uncle Ben said
Even Bucky came back, why the fuck are you still dead?
Track Name: In the 1990s (feat. Harley Gold)
Back in the day,
may mean nothing to you.
It's got a different connotation,
to me and my whole crew.

Every Wednesday we go,
showing up in string numbers.
Spending cash that we earned,
we working for it all summer.

Maybe mowing some lawns,
maybe pulling some weeds.
While we thinking what will happen,
to the runt and Mr. Creed.

And speaking of Summers,
what's up with Jean and Scott?
Throw the Phoenix in the mix,
now that couple's twice as hot.

Pop on down to Target,
grab the new figurines.
They got the claw-popping action,
on the new Wolverines.

The brown and the gold?
I'll take the yellow and blue.
Hell, while your at it,
better give me Weapon X too.

Jump into the car,
and get them blister packs open.
Not loosing any pieces,
it's all I've been hoping.

Stop my the store,
and grab a Wizard magazine.
I gotta check on my stock,
I keep them fresh and so clean.

So back in the day,
in the 1990's
It was the way that we played.
In the 1990's
Yeah back in the day
In the 1990's
It's just the way that we played,
It was the 1990's

Went to a different kind of con,
it was in the SD.
But compared to this monster,
it's a far cry to see.

Where a kid could meet his heroes.
Maybe finish out a set.
Some collectible cards,
the really hard ones to get,

We were thicker than thieves,
and there was honor among us.
Proud to be nerds,
and are numbers humongous.

And now this weekend long ad,
thinks its pretty hot stuff.
With its gallery of stars,
and all this "con-exclusive" stuff.

Well frankly my dear,
I don't rightly give a damn.
Take it out of Hollywood,
and give it back to the fans.

And yeah it's just paper,
and sure it's just plastic,
But the memories they make,
they go way beyond fantastic.

Cause the geek on the street,
with her big imagination,
she can stretch her intellect,
across this whole nation.

So back in the day,
in the 1990's
It was the way that we played.
In the 1990's
Yeah back in the day
In the 1990's
It's just the way that we played,
It was the 1990's

Snap back to the past
like Mighty Max
Put my red cap to the back
like 90’s acts

When i did it all for the Cartoons
and Comic books
Arcades at the mall, Tekken 2
yeah man it took

My lunch money
more than bullies would
Riding huffy bikes,
jumping curbs through Dewey’s hood

Gargoyles after school yeah
man was simply hooked
The character development
damn was really good

Way before my hipster was evident
Blisters on my thumbs
from playing sega genesis

Hanging at Duane’s
who had the Super NES
Playing all night
to prove and see who’s best

But Looking back now
i dont remember who won
I just remember the smiles,
I just remember the fun

I remember the Pogs,
I remember when Trolls
were just little dolls,
And not internet goals.

Now there's a side of me,
I'm guessing that you never knew.
You got the eyes to see,
I'll give you this much is true.

But it ain't on the surface.
It ain't even skin deep.
Even little X-Men,
still got secrets to keep.

Brotherhood,
it's a word that means together.
It means I got your back boy,
forever and ever.

It means we break bread,
at the same X-table.
And it meas I'm all in,
I got that premium cable.

And who are we to say,
that we aren't the next link?
It's so humorously hubris,
for us to even think.

That it's within our reach,
that it's within our power.
In celestial time, the centuries pass like hours.
It was back in the day.

So back in the day,
in the 1990's
It was the way that we played.
In the 1990's
Yeah back in the day
In the 1990's
It's just the way that we played,
It was the 1990's
Track Name: Xavier
See these wheels keep rolling, rolling
See me reap what you’re sowing, sowing
See these wheels keep rolling, rolling
See me reap what you sow, let’s go

Xavier
Better check your behavior
you’re now messing with a proper mutant savior
Xavier
Got it written in the gravier
you’re getting schooled by the prof, Chuck Xavier
Xavier
Got no ulterior
make way for the homo superior
Xavier
Seeing into your interior
I roll around on my mutant posterior

Gettin’ in your head easier done than said
take notes, before I bring the physical ed
if continuity said that I am currently dead
well let’s assume I get better if you’re reading ahead
you know that
I’ve led my race through a world of fear, Stryfe and hatred
getting me so irate, it keeps me up real late
I’ve got to regulate my state and watch some Catherine Tate
I mean I can’t wait to get faded watching Catherine Tate
‘Cause I’m a Juggernaut, which is like my bro Marko
got so rich you’d thought I was a Stark though
taught Scarlet Witch how to parallel park those
Blackbird jets while watching Donnie Darko
Hark yo, and hear the Angel singing
Warren worth all the bling he’s been flinging
he’s gleaming, listen to me streaming
beaming ‘cause we’re bringing you the future we’ve been dreaming
See me reap what you’re sowing, sowing
while my wheels keep rolling, rolling
unless I’m sitting in a chair that’s floating
then I’m rolling while I’m floating, ‘cause I’m

Xavier
Better check your behavior
you’re now messing with a proper mutant savior
Xavier
Got it written in the gravier
you’re getting schooled by the prof, Chuck Xavier
Xavier
I’ve got no ulterior
gotta make way for the homo superior
Xavier
Seeing into your interior
I roll around on my mutant posterior

To me my X-men, to me my X-women,
strip down to your bikinis, it’s time to go swimmin’
If I’m chilling in the pool and you call me Bob
I’ll rob your mind of every thought like eating corn off the cob
I share a barber with Picard, Jerusalem and Mob
and drop beats that are fatter than your mom or the Blob
Fred Duke, yo, put up your dukes, yo
Been winning erry single inning, ain’t no flukes, yo
I know how it looks so hold all your rebukes
for a mutant who ain’t lucid ‘nuff to follow all the books, yo
tell them I’m Xavier
tell them I’m Xavier

Better check your behavior

Track Name: Be the Hero
I don't know what you heard,
but rest assured
I am not dead.

It takes more than a spear
to cut through me,
enough said.

Ahab made it tough,
but this is not lead.
Adamantium, vibrainum,
mingling like co-ed.

I flow with it,
just go with it.
Growing ten feet tall,
just showing it.

Never said I was a poet,
but a sonnet couldn't hurt my chances,
yeah, you knowing it.

Cause when I roll up,
won't be a Mercedes or a Lincoln.
Got a blackbird in the air,
and one on the ground just for drinking.

I ain't stupid,
not gonna risk getting myself a "FLUI".
Leave that scoundrel stuff for Han
and that walking carpet Chewie.

Those fools is back where they belong,
where we can Marvel,
just like the do me.

Now it's all been reversed,
they acting like they never even knew me.

If we've learned anything at all,
it's that the best we can hope for.
Is to die covered up,
with the thing that's at our very cores.

And they'll pour on,
those morons,
will keep on waging war on,
every living thing,
using our headstones to keep score on.

Hate to say I told you so,
but I saw all of this coming.
Flashes of a distant future,
so horrible that they're numbing.

Visions of my friends faces,
all bloody and all broken.
I ain't joking man,
the meat on their bones was still smoking.

I don't even have to be a psychic,
just to see it.
Cause every time I close me eyes,
someone dies and I believe it.

If I want to be the hero,
than all I got to do is be it.
Hold this mic a sec,
I think it's time yall should see it.

(Battle sounds)

I don't even write rap,
I write lyrics that,
set to a certain beat,
and a certain kind of grooving track.

Inspire one to have hope,
and another one to give it back.
That's my plan of attack,
even Remender says I'm not whack.

And that's just it,
the power that's within me.
An enemy of hate,
so hate can just unfriend me.

I know I call myself a kid,
but no one need defend me.
Getting right down to it,
that's the end G.
Track Name: Return of the King
Whispers circulating,
the return of the king.
Gets the thoughts all percolating,
like the Lord of the Rings.

Bringing back the big man,
with the capital A.
The Apocalypse Prime,
like the dawn of new day.

It ain't nothing but that,
just a horrible rumor.
The X-Men took him down,
cut him out like a tumor.

Count on one thing,
and of this I'm really sure.
There can be only one.
And I'm En Sabah Nur.

(Chanting)

(Villainous laugh)

Foolish little whelp,
it's best you bow down,
With the knowledge that you lack,
we could fill a whole town.

It's inevitable kid,
you can't stop the ascension.
Soon you'll see the true path,
and you'll know my intention.

Cause evil is a word,
just a meager point of view.
In time you will see,
it is the right thing to do.

Don't let the vulgar masses,
cloud up your judgement.
Lambs to the slaughter,
just need a little nudge kid.

I want none of this,
you're just a voice in my head.
You're the ghost of a monster,
that's long since been dead.

I refuse to believe,
that it's all in my nature.
I have grown to believe,
that I am more than my maker.

Every age needs a ruler,
the invisible hand.
I will bring about order,
to cleanse this whole land.

I'm the one true path,
the only mutant messiah.
First comes the fear,
then you'll be a pariah.

Well I guess I can admit,
that it doesn't seem fair.
That the cloth that we're cut from,
is starting to tear.

Man even Cyclops,
has been branded a terrorist.
If there's a mirror on the wall,
than ain't no one the fairest.

All I want is some peace.
Just a moment of solace.
If we don't get no mercy,
I wont show them the smallest.

I lost all my stock,
already cashed in my shares.
Here's my final two cents,
go call someone who cares.

(Chanting)
Track Name: Mutant Paradise
As I walk through the halls,
of this mutant academy,
I catch every kind of stare,
as if they're all mad at me.

Cause the human kind of hate,
no it wasn't enough.
We got muties hating muties.
Frontin, acting all tough.

What? You think I'll take this guff,
from a guy named Glob Herman?
Or the kid with pink hair,
dude looks like Pee-Wee Herman.

So what? Big deal.
So you're the Kid Omega?
I'm the O.G. alpha,
like Jules and Vincent Vega.

Bet you think it's a laugh,
to say I asked a Bamf to prom.
We'll just see who laughs last,
say hello to your mom.

What's that? I didn't hear you,
I was sipping on my Sprite.
And I got No Girl,
maybe Cyclops was right.

We've been spending most our lives,
following a guy with laser eyes.
We've been promised once or twice,
that we'll find the mutant paradise.
We've been spending most our lives
following the guy with laser eyes.
We've fighting most our lives
against a guy who's magnetized.

Forget the Danger Room,
this is the danger school.
Attack kids with great power,
must be some kind of fool.

Eye Boy will see you coming,
Shark Girl will send you running.
Eye beams will be blasting,
and for you we'll be gunning.

The Hellfire Club,
now it's an academy?
Well isn't that quaint,
sounds more like a fad to me.

All the money in the world,
and not a single lick of sense.
You better conjugate that verb,
cause you'll be past tense.

We got power in droves,
we got courage in spades,
we got the skills to pay the bills,
and we about to get paid.

So many have tried,
and not a single one succeeded.
Move over Avengers,
cause the X-Men are needed.

Tell me why are we,
surprised to see,
Nearly every team,
has Wolverine?

We've been spending most our lives,
following a guy with laser eyes.
We've been promised once or twice,
that we'll find the mutant paradise.
We've been spending most our lives
following the guy with laser eyes.
We've fighting most our lives
against a guy who's magnetized.

And I've come a long way,
since gluing jewels to an X
And I've never looked back
ain't been cashing hot checks.

And everyone's been asking:
"Yo Evan! What's next?"
All I know is the flow,
send Remender some texts.

Trade my suit and my tie,
for some old gold and blues.
Maybe black, maybe yellow.
Got so many to choose.

Looking fly,rocking leather,
from my head to my shoes
X-Man or X-Woman,
ain't got nothing to lose.

We've been spending most our lives,
following a guy with laser eyes.
We've been promised once or twice,
that we'll find the mutant paradise.
We've been spending most our lives
following the guy with laser eyes.
We've fighting most our lives
against a guy who's magnetized.

We've been spending most our lives,
following a guy with laser eyes.
We've been promised once or twice,
that we'll find the mutant paradise.
We've been spending most our lives
following the guy with laser eyes.
We've fighting most our lives
against a guy who's magnetized.
