One time, the ICP with this shit for you and your boys to say "fuck yeah" to! Yo, J, kick some of that shit about the wizard and all that. Drop a psycho beat and go on and rap, bald-headed fuck...
Aw shit, homeboy, you shoulda seen me
I was flipped at the party, drinkin' fifth of MD
Straight passed out on his mother's bed
Seven cans of brew going through my head
Dreaming I was sipping on Faygo
In my dope house and here comes a tornado
I can't run nowhere
Cause the whole damn house was spinning through the air
And don't laugh just yet
Yeah, it's flatter than motherfucking eyes, bet!
And here comes a three and a half foot pimp
With a blue zoot-suit and a mack daddy limp
Yo, I got a grip on my weapon
Cuz this midget motherfucker and his boys are stepping
"Oh my, look at the witch
You crushed and killed that wicked old bitch"
And they saying that I'm doomed
Cuz I killed some ho that rides on a broom?
Fuck this, I'm going back to where I stay
And I walking down the yellow brick alleyway

You're off to see the wizard!
Say no more, say no more
You're off to see the wizard!
Droppin' mothafuckas all the way to Del-Rey
Droppin' mothafuckas all the way to Del-Rey

Well, go on motherfucker!
Now I'm roaming just like basehead
Everybody know just where the alley led
And don't say you don't know
Which way to go
Yo, there go the scarecrow
I ain't playing this bullshit no more
So I whip out the nickel plated double-four
"Best tell my ass how to get back
Or I'll blow the straw out your fucking head"
"You wanna see the wizard?"
"Fuck yeah, I do."
"Get me off this pole and I'll come with you."
"You know the wiz?"
Yeah, I used to roll for him.
Then he gave me out to G, I got a bullet for him."
So me and the Crow was walking on bricks
Spitting and cussing and holding our dicks
Thinking, "Damn, this ain't how the movie go."
I ain't seen one motherfucking rainbow
Ain't a fresh pair of kicks in the land
Just what you thought, there go the Tin Man
"How to get to the wizard?"
"What the fuck? I ain't saying shit until you oil me up."
"I don't see any motherfucking oil, bro."
"Oil me up with a forty of Red Bull."
Just like the book said
Tin Man was stumbling like a crackhead
Old-ass rusted out metal
But we was on our way to see the wizard of the ghetto

"Somewhere over the rainbow"
(Shut the) fuck up, bitch
Damn, this ain't Kansas, ho!! This is the Southwest motherfucking ghetto zone, bitch. So pick your skank ass up and you and Toto get the fuck on!!"

Yeah, we've come a long way
Droppin' motherfuckers all the way to Del Rey
And I'm a wonderland storybook tourist
Gripping that .44, we coming up to the forest
Anything could be out there
Lions, tigers, maybe a bear
Hoods and hoodlums and theives, oh my!
Hoods and hoodlums and theives, oh my!
Hoods and hoodlums and theives, oh my!
I'ma kick somebody in they fuckin' eye
Don't fuck with me at a time like this
I'll send out a bullet, guarantee won't miss
So I just move and the hooks are flying
"Then come and buck with the fucking Lion
I want rings, chains, any kind of gold!"
"Or what?"
"Or I'm a let this nine unfold."
Man, fuck this, come back to Del Rey
There you can rob motherfuckers any day
Crackheads, hoes, whatever you can name
Catch all the rich ones coming out the ball game
So finally, we was at the castle
And with the guards, we got no hassle
They all just got the fuck out our way
I guess even in Oz they know I'm Violent J

You're off to see the wizard!
Say no more, say no more
You're off to see the wizard!
Droppin' mothafuckas all the way to Del-Rey
(Fuck a wizard)
Droppin' mothafuckas all the way to Del-Rey

"Yo, where's the motherfucking wizard stay?"
"Who wants to know?"
I wanna word with him at gunpoint
Cuz there's no place like Detroit

Welcome to the wizard's kingdom
The Wizard of the Ghetto as its said
Welcome to the wizard's kingdom
Sorry, motherfucker, this is where you'll stay
Scarecrow, you ain't shit to me
And the Lion ain't shit but a snack for three
Tin Man, don't take me for a sucker
I'll chew your ass up and spit bullets out, motherfucker


We let it rain,
Seventy-nine slugs to his motherfucking brain
Then I stepped back cool and calm
Because the Tin Man was dropping cluster bombs
Everybody know about car jacking
So me and the fellas went home macking
Jumped in a smooth-ass ride
Drop top Geo says "Wiz" on the side
Gripped it back to the hood where we came from
And that shit was fun
Next thing I knew, I was back at the party
Got up and was fidna to tell everybody
But I just let it pass
Cuz I know they'll laugh at my drunk ass
Droppin' mothafuckas all the way to Del-Rey

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.

Trouble Breathing
Alkaline Trio
While the obvious connections with suicide or alcoholism could be drawn easily, more subtly this song could be about someone who views the world through a negative lens constantly and how as much as the writer tries to show the beauty in the world, this person refuses to see it. It's one or another between the rope and the bottle. There is no good option for this person. They can't see it. Skiba sings it in a kind of exasperated way like He's tired of hearing this negative view constantly and just allowing that person to continue feeling the way they feel knowing he can't do anything about it. You can hear it when he says maybe you're a vampire.
