Track Name: Session 02 - Lethal Lunacy [Prod. by Leyone Tracks]
[Verse]
Life as a star, drift from afar, we glistenin'
Reflections of the world, I'm steady rockin' and listenin'/
So what's the mission? Standing in the third eyes' lobby
Wonderin', when did freeing minds only become a hobby?/
Never weak. Breaking Adamantium with my own teeth.
Biting my style? Breath of Fire dragon baring the fangs/
I'm baring the flames of Iron Fist, preparing to slay,
Charlot harlots like Ogier the Dane/
Launch a lance a lot, Castle court of Camelot,
Round table Knight, I'm cited as Ocelot - I mean, Sir Lancelot/
Ricochet shots like Ocelot, foes drop when reciting my prose,
Inviting souls to the Slaughterhouse - how Crooked is your I (Eye): third/
A blind man feeling the texture of the world
through the rhythm located within the air/
Told'em in braille, stay dots: one, two, four, five
Music to a driveby. Instincts of Zatoichi/
Getting busy in the streets, sort of meek
But I seek that inner glow, I'm searching for that inner truth/
Got more wisdom than the tooth, pursuit of happiness.
Twelve jewels (Huh) I'm coppin' that Five Percenter/
Digable like the Planets, but I'm galaxy dancing
Bouncing off the baseline, reckin' the mind, tryin' to incline,
move with the stars/
Master of the Universe, reverse the reverb, spitting Kama Sutra's sensual to open up your Chakras/
Find me, rockin' with Lee, at the Eight Gates
Nimble on my Nimbus, Son Goku, I got you/
Reading between my lines, you say you saw me coming?
They must of told you braille.
Track Name: Session 03 - Godz Armor [Prod. by Shintendo64]
[Introduction]
Sharp Wind,
Swift Dagger,
God's Armor
Amen

[Verse 1]
Heat seeking, catching missiles with the palm of my hands
Be that kid, Vagabond, on the otherside of Shaolin
Fist, middle finger tatted with Wu Tang
Clan be the Fox Hound sound bound bouncing off that baseline
Line rhymes in hieroglyphics, rap these raps wrapped in war drums
Give me that war paint [Huh]
Rocking the rhythm up top of the Opalesce, shinin'
Super Sonic juking, from the precision of the lyrics
They glisten like holographics [Huh]
Hollow Bastion, blasting fire,
Flame char Charizard, scar adversaries
from afar, so far away from home
that it smell like Nebula
So I said to the sun,
Tunnel vision, my vision encapsulating your spirit
The spirit Urameshi getting messy
Over them break beats, I'm breaking an arm
Breaking them legs for the settlement
Black excellence, Godbody to the syntax
Go!

[Chorus]
You on point Vagabond?
All the time Domo
You on point Vagabond?
Word is bond Domo.
You on point Vagabond?
To the sky, Domo.
So on point, turn table needles are jealous

You on point Vagabond?
All the time Domo
You on point Vagabond?
Word is bond Domo.
You on point Vagabond?
To the sky, Domo.
Then grab the mic
and shed some of that insight

[Verse 2]
[Huh]
Did Heaven sign him or something?
The Devil grooving in the moonlight, trying to tease him like Gluttons
Nothing will satisfy the hunger emanating from the abyss
Come to exist, in the dissonance humbled in the distance
I want to breach the skyline, one more time
Bask in the spotlight, of the sunshine [Huh]
Standing up dry in the pouring rain
Graffe slain names, through the hieroglyphics in the night-time
Quoting the cosmic bonds, between the Earth and the Stars
From the Spirit to the Gods, rain fire from the chorus
Singing the Book of the Five Rings, co-sign our divine reign [Yo]
Meta-metaphors take flight like Meta-Knight
Words, sparking that insight
Swords, of spoken text, piggy-backed on Icarus we soaring
Through the cadence of the universe, when I flip the verse
Emcees disperse, with a So(ul) Amaziní blaze
So sip wisdom, get lifted, so we can
Dream!

[Chorus]
You on point Vagabond?
All the time Domo
You on point Vagabond?
Word is bond Domo.
You on point Vagabond?
To the sky, Domo.
So on point, turn table needles are jealous

You on point Vagabond?
All the time Domo
You on point Vagabond?
Word is bond Domo.
You on point Vagabond?
To the sky, Domo.
Then grab the mic
and shed some of that insight

[Outro]
Cuz I'm cool like dat [huh]
I'm chill like dat [huh]
I'm peace like dat [huh]
I'm black like dat [huh]
I'm funk like dat [huh]
I'm jazz like dat [Huh]
I love like dat [huh]

I'm ghost
Track Name: Session 04 - KIMCHI (Pt 2) / The Morning Star [Prod. by Dante Starkiller]
[Verse I]
Funky Buddha on the canvas
Carving enlightenment into the third eye (I'm)
Striving through close calls and reaching the skyline
Lines uglier than cursive chicken scratch
or at least Craig Mac(k)
This is the return of the [Huh]
Jedi juking javelins, pivot when I kick it
Bruce Lee when I spit it
Shadow stance, shadow box, boxed in the Shadow of Colossi
Sighs seized in wicked dreams weaved vivid
Vagabond's on the horizon, can you see it?
Terra five on the uprise fo(u)r, metaphor for
Clear Souls sieging castles - we,
Limits, Infinite, Game Genie Novelists
So carve my sins in hieroglyphics [huh]
Jazz be that heartbeat, so baptize me in break beats [Huh]
anonymous, counting stars on the Opalesce
Opposite glide when I cruise through the city with
Sapphire rapid fire eyes. Blazing through the soul
Afro Blue hues, misery in my whisky - set 'em up jack
Jackal jacking cards from beneath your sleeve
this be that: [Huh]
Huey Newton blazing knowledge in that ink pen
Fela Kuti getting groovy in an Afrobeat Kingdom / or,
Vietnam spitting purple psalm to Boogie-Pop Phantoms

[Chorus x2]
'Cause I'm the Emcee
Eating up all of the Kimchi
Washing it down with some Green Tea
It’s a beautiful thing.Tea Leaf green hue
Sky side, Sky time, Hero of the Sky Loft
Rocking it when I be in your vicinity

(Cause I'm)
Drifting with the night-time dawn
Shining brighter than the rising sun
The morning star

[Verse II]
Say how you doing world?
I'm on the scene, dropped the name "Flash Fiction"
Now I'm "Vagabond" moving along with the Morning Star
Line rhymes, from the design, incredible mind - smooth style
Bout to be grooving in the rifts of one of these jazz tunes
Consume the radiance. Second bloom of Seba Jun(e)
Phoenix resurrected, so why would you second guess us now?
A League of Gentle, Dudley rose throwing boxers
I'm keeping it classy like a glass of Moscato
Living my life's destiny, like a distant memory
Clever styled poetry, annotated by the quotes of scholars
Time ain't waiting for your two cents, twin sense
Duo text held like twin swords, sparking that insight
Like Miyamoto Musashi, they got me
Spitting Sun Tzu tactics to make your back flip
Heads or tails? Harvey Dent
I'm cutting these threads like the Sisters of Fate
'Cause I'm

[Reverse Chorus]
Track Name: Session 05 - Kame Sennin / Peace Gangster Stardust [Prod. by Cosmo]
[Verse I]
Speaker spell, boom box
rocking the riddle of rhythms
We dancing on the shoulders of Atlas when he shrugged
Follow stutter-steps in Jazz rifts and boom gap
Slow clap in the club, where souls are cleansed
in the lens of ascending steps [Huh]
Knuckle up, double dutch tempo'd piston stitched punch
Jackie-Chan stunt, high dive from the skyline
Fist of burgundy, urgently uncap the lock of my inner ki
Whisper Sonic Boom sutras for the frequency
Frequently, break beats, freak features in the rapture
Capture crooks in they castles, complex conquest
like Griffith and the Band of the Hawk (last light)
Berserker in the armor slaying karma with a bastard sword
Ante up my valor, adrift to Valhalla
Power to your hustle, you're moving with blind intentions
Intent is to shit out Picasso(s) with each ascension
Did I mention the cosmos? (No)
Well here's a dose of that / Jupiter Jazz magic love
infatuated with the blues, a sucka in sync with the groove
(Of, of) That Jupiter Jazz magic love, infatuated with the blues
a sucka in sync with the groove, of baseline rift - slipped,
busted my big ass lips in the shift of the universe
The tides are turning, so, come with me

[Chorus]
So we can dream

[Verse II]
Blue wonder, asunder the crew
under the thunder and breathe,
wonder and plunder emcees,
Kaldur’ahm to the cauldron
Gohan to a Shogun
“Nimble on my nimbus
Son Goku, we got you”
Smoking on the inner state,
In an inner state of, searching
for a fractured atlas
Fuck a co-sign,
I’m ghost writing for God
and the universe, quote a verse
while crate digging in the stars
(Huh)
Dusty five precent(er) when my interlude is glowing
Taimak to the syntax, Sensei blending that insight
The last Dragonite in sight,
(Huh)
So who's the master?
Sho’nuff, I’m showing up with
(Huh)
Magic in my marker, Karma kamikaze spirit bomb,
training in the hyperbolic rhyme,
Chambers like Trigun, or Gundam
Outlaw to the Star / line,
Galactic to the Leyline
Lay lines when I gotta
Dream

[Chorus]
Track Name: Session 06 - Escaping the Astral Plane [Prod. by Leyone Tracks]
[Verse I]
Break bars, vernacular on the rise
Skyline is clear, vision of Nasir
Written on the tombstone, sling stones like Rock(et)
Raccoon, weaponry from the moon / [Huh]
Orbiting the satellites, Metaknight sparking beam swords
Ignited dual wield, syntax when I collapse
Vocal cords, absorbed like Parasite and Superman
Bring your mans to witness the downfall of your crew
Trinity beam, Tri force be my power
Tien Shinhan when I switch hands and strike like /
Ganondorf adorned in my enemy's jewelry /
Affinity for, the Infinity Gauntlet, I got this
Bumping music scales on stardust, my star must /
Dance on the Milky Way, skate on God's tongue
Godson in the ring, boxing in God's absence
Catharsis by sunset, when the East is burning red (Look!)

[Chorus]
This for my mellow my man
It’s like that, for my mellow my man
My mellow my man, my mellow my man
This for my mellow, my man
Bringing that boom bap, straight back to that Jazz
For my mellow my man

[Verse II]
Curve cursive penmanship, hold the pen like a swordsmen
A wordsmith from the cosmos, harness comets when I spit
Dialects off the Rictor, earthquakes from the tips of my fingers
Toppling Ba Sing Se, so long live the Queen
We shattering hierarchies in each pen stroke / Deathstroke,
Wielding katana tongue blades, that's Uzumaki
Rocking spiraling swords, drawn like,
Deadpool breaking the fourth wall
Crews crumble like Maria, I see ya, cower in my premises
Dismember your sentences like,
the Black Dahlia Dagger juggling jugulars
Juggernaut, treading through a field of minds
Isolated Psychonaut knocking knuckles on nebula
Crew catch galactic fades, that's / Hokuto Shinken
Fists of the North Star, predecessor 64 /
Shintendo with the end game
After I come to slay ya like…

[Chorus]
This for my mellow my man
It’s like that, for my mellow my man
My mellow my man, my mellow my man
This for my mellow, my man
Bringing that boom bap, straight back to that Jazz
For my mellow my man
Track Name: Session 07 - 独眼竜 / Dokuganryū (One-Eyed Dragon) [Prod. by Leyone Tracks]
[Verse I: Vagabond Maurice]
Oroku Saki to the Disc Jockey,
Master Onion Chop Chop to the vinyl
Cutting’em from the spinal – Tap,
to the matt, suplex from the turn buckle
(So on point, turntable needles are jealous)
Chopping up syllables like switch blades to cocaine
80s, babies be the relic, I wasn’t emphatic enough
So I headed to the Hyperbolic Rhyme Chamber
Revolver loaded the text, enhanced by the truth
I be that Humanoid Typhoon Tri-beam Mecca
Vash Stampede, I’m bleeding for that groove
Manifest your destiny, executing them vocal chords
Spoke prose sonnet, netting asteroids and comets
Belt of Orion discipline, skill of my rhyme
Evident in our age gap, Golden Age rap,
sacrifices suckas in the Eclipse – (Huh)
Leave them adrift, within the abyss of fallen souls
An Alchemist getting more, technical with the parables
Variables, I “x” them out, like Zero did to X’s clone
Welcome to the Terra Dome, cadence lifting the speakers
Beat knocking like a tech-throw from Dhalsim
Immortal Tech of Yoga Flame, spit fire like Avatar Roku
Beneath Sozan’s comet, engaging in Mortal Kombat
with an arsenal of Haiku. Got me, then I got you
Double Dragon partnership, stance, check’em in Fool’s Mate
This is the martial state where heroes are made by Saiyan fibers
Optics like Cyclops, foresights like Sherlock
Word to your mother The Ronin’s are making the moves
not found in the gamer’s – (Huh)
Optics like Cyclops, foresights like Sherlock
Word to your mother, the Ronin’s making the moves
not found in the Gamer’s Manual / and that’s

[Bridge]
One time for your mind, one time
(Yo, whatever!)
One time for your mind, one time
(Yo, whatever)

[Chorus]
ONSOL, I plan to save your fucking frequency (x2)
ONSOL, I plan to save your frequency,
From the micro transmitters they injected
In ya’ll energy
