Bustin out the scene that you all know
Found Gasoline alley all thanks to Lox
Here's to hip hop Getting lost in the flow
Head out the 76 off to York for the show
The Alton St. posse, Red lion Crew were there.
The Alton St. Posse, Red Lion Crew were there.
Gimmie the beat
Gimmie the bass
Gimmie the guitar as sweet

In time Lord I have figured out,
that it take more than a hook or riff 2 pop
But in that beat that makes you lose
With all the open mic night's that's I've heard
and all the cadence thrown back to the curb.
The echo of the hard one drop scarred my soul.

It's time for a sahs ide invasion
from Oakland to the west End
burn the city to the ground
back to the pad, had elevated educated
The Natural Selection brings that One drop Sound
In the morning time, whoah, it's the best Sound
In the evening time, whoah, It is the style.
and that's why, oh why, I still come around.

Spark it yo! we need to get faded
it's well past time
that I've lost this mind of mine,
and I don't mind my soul is elevated,
I got no...and I'm so far behind
In the morning time, whoah, it's the best time
In the evening time, whoah, It is the best time
and I'm High, so High
down for another round.



Jeremy, josh dan the married man
and livy's Living good
M.C. Yates, Uncle Tom, and Chris
and who could forget Stu
Mr. Brian Tiel's a surgeon
on this hopped up 8 track scene
We'll give back what we've taken we'll play until we bleed!

    General CommentMc yates wrote this tune, It's about his past experince while playing music with his former band.

    there is a few references to bands he looked up to in there as well

    for Example the Line"found Gasoline Alley, and it's all thanx to LoX."

    Lox was a friend of yates when he was in school who introduced Yates to Reggae and hip hop. Also upon one of his trips to Philly to See a band Lox helped him locate the TLA to see the show when Yates got lost.

    The Names at the end of the song in the outro are some of the people who Yates hung with when his old band used to practice at a house on Alton St in Pittsburgh.
