about

This album was written back in August of 2009 during a particularly spiritually sensitive time for CAV3 immediately following the death of his father. The lyrics seemed to flow out effortlessly to the genius and futuristic cyber-beats courtesy of his long-time best friend Cygnus. Huge cups of morning coffee also seemed to contribute to the overall hyper-drive activity of the songs. The first two tracks "Skynet" and "Donorax" were recorded at Cygnus' Dallas, Texas home studio, and the rest were later recorded at CAV3's studios in Koreatown and Inglewood (Los Angeles) California. The title "Skynet" is only in-part inspired by the "Terminator" Hollywood movie and the modern-day internet. It is used here as a general term referring to an invisible, elusive network/dimension of metaphysical energy and information that is the source of all human inspiration, evolution, and salvation. What's the passcode? Listen to the album and find out...

Track Name: Skynet
Chorus:

WE'RE MELTING THE MAP
BACK TO THE PAST
LOOP UP THE FUTURE
BOOST UP THE MATH
GET THAT DEGREE
MINUS THE FEE
KNOWLEDGE IS FREE
FREE FREE

Verse 1:
what's the matta got your data on lock like the
phantom of the opera sat him on top of the
globe with a fish lens goin deep gettin
bends - when i ascend the bull pen will
explode - got the code to make em go berserk
kickin it sweet like desert got
dirt in bit map flip that like
tic tac toe go with the flow
x-that merck shit like metroid
breakin a kid's toy i'm a fat boy with a
jet-pack better get back we bout to
blast-off next level we takin the
mask off breakin the bank for kicks
babylon burn cause i ain't no bitch
bait no switch minus the sales pitch
flex neo geo in the matrix

Chorus

storm troopas on my back so i drop packs
duck into an alley detonate that
watch em fragment it's not a figment
of the imagination like skynet
you get plugged in, it's like drugs man
fly to outerspace and then back man
i'm like pack man i eat the whole ghost
make my body tingle like a mofo
they let phobos feast on the global
but there's a mogul of love so noble
He got Chronos in a choke hold
and he blast like a trumpet and a trombone
kick like a nuke snare like a fourfour
cygnus yo my dj so cold
call me CAV3 the vocal
the combination's oh so loco

Chorus

i step in the spot, check the picture
connect the dots then i spit my scripture
weave so tight yo like a zipper
robot wanna battle got to rip ya
non-conformist with enormous orbit
speakin prophecy like nastradomus
ridin comets like super lamas
astral projection that's tha karma
sutra vegetables and fruta
eat 'em and shit em out the pupa
like supermario to koopa
spit fire wake you from the stupor
it's a dream team of a light beam
on a stampeed never been seen swimmin upstream
in the night time move in the pipeline
infiltrate and burn in the mind's eye

Chorus
Track Name: Donorax
when i was a young boy played x-box
nowadays people get played by sex bots
purchased on the black market with net stocks
e-trade ebay slaves with neck locks
if you try to escape your phone get tapped
feds show up at your job you could bet that
your condo is a trap don't go back
only choice run underground with the pack
corporate police they run this place
rat racist habitat disgrace
famine and vagrancy is common place
wonder is there any hope for the human race
i see rebels in the alley they hold heat
switchblades grenades and boots on feet
24-7 man they ready all week
to set a fire level the city of concrete

chorus:
what's goin on
nowadays shit is so strange
every single day feel the same
i feel nothin even though i wanna feel somethin
pick up a mic and start dumpin

what's goin on
man i know shits gotta change
can't keep numbin the pain
with consumption soon we'll cease to function
unless we turn the tide and start somethin

put my hoodie on take a trip to the pier
look upon the ocean nobody here
silence is golden my phone interferes
call from a friend hadn't talked to in years
told me that the time i been waiting is near
inside information to my ear
said i should meet him at power plant
behind the hour glass under the stairs at the rear
hopped into a cab and i said go quick
when i arrived the rain poured so thick
seen my old friend in the place that he picked
surrounded by a mysterious click
he said this is it now no goin back
either roll with us or sleep with the rats
freedom or death man this a wolf pack
i said OK the code name was donorax

what's goin on
nowadays shit is so strange
every single day feel the same
i feel nothin even though i wanna feel somethin
pick up a mic and start dumpin

what's goin on
man i know shits gotta change
can't keep numbin the pain
with consumption soon we'll cease to function
unless we turn the tide and start somethin

they took me to a safe house in the projects
where they broke down the mission to launch offense
my position was to infiltrate convents
with a flame thrower to torch and burn nonsense
i was like whoah they was like yeah
this about to be the best shit of the year
we sendin you straight to dragon's lair
so charge up your spirit and have no fear
i asked 'em how i could survive the journey
without prior experience and learning
they said they knew that by the oracle i had the
art of war to keep the fire burning
and now i'm in your headspace via headphone
ghost in the shell homie let it be known
the throne of my soul aint the flesh and bones
if it's freedom you want you won't wait long

what's goin on
nowadays shit is so strange
every single day feel the same
i feel nothin even though i wanna feel somethin
pick up a mic and start dumpin

what's goin on
man i know shits gotta change
can't keep numbin the pain
with consumption soon we'll cease to function
unless we turn the tide and start somethin
Track Name: Index
can i get an index to
guide me sometimes i cant find me lookin inside me
where to go next i need some guidance
fear try to eat me delete me defeat me
discretely i need some silence
Good Lord i know no man's an island
flyin without the Navigator? lookin to get
julianed and fried like a potato
cave and cygnus downloadin' data
put it to the hard drive push that fader
pull that trigger, your vision gets bigger
open up hearts and minds to deliver
the package that i'm packin minus subtraction
that's addition without superstition
i keep prayin for a better life, a better
day, better world, better believe a high tech
metaphor, cause anxiety's obsolete,
so cut copy and paste and get on your feet
ask the Lord to help you to build your castle
and the many challenges to tackle
and quit chasin cash that's a hassle
whoever told you to do it's an asshole
but don't hate 'em, let the Love fade 'em
that's the plan that we all scan verbatim
so just line 'em up vaccinate em
we got the cure for sure activate em

chorus:
activate index captivate
sit alone and contemplate
to find out that im never alone
something is
watchin me every day so properly
now there ain't no stoppin me
cause sleepwalkin is not for me not for me no
x2

like an opera, i project and keep poppin up
lookin for wifey knock her up
the right lady to pop babies out
the word is out,
i got the bounty bigger than mountains
my soul speaks and my tongue's a fountain
i keep bouncin more to the ounce and
i zapp a hater, the watermelon masticator
my enemy's a masturbator,
wastin my seed, yo no such thing
still gotta conserve to float those wings
hold that love so close and let it go
over the textured landscape let it flow
like a snowmelt river, pull the arrow from the quiver
shoot to kill jigga
civilization built to idols, that's suicidal, read your bible
like al quaida, multiply ya, need a hand out? yo that's mesiah
the God is back, to start that cardiac, the glow in the dark insomniac
with no sleep for the one, who hold hands with the Son,
steady workin the angles to get it done
no shame in the game, carry the torch in the rain
whether or not the fame
cause it aint what you talk about
it's how you feel when walk it out
knock em out yo

chorus

used to play nintendo burn the endo
now i ride and look out the window
scenery passin peddle to the gas and
freedom's what we seek with a passion
what's the formula see it in my cornea
i gotta give a testimonial
city of angels california
the battlefield and we some warriors
swingin a sword that weigh so heavy
the flood waters done broke that levy
given a chance to live an advanced way of life
still so many choose to kill eachother
so my brothers put they hands up with their arms out
the alarms on ringin out stanzas
like bonanza the wild west
gun smoke is a cancer a fire dancer
so i roll with the chancellor to get on track like a
choo choo train got a coo coo clock in my main frame
maintain balance always gotta use your talents
never bury those, flow low gravity so arial
illusive material
cloudy and nebulous the envious
energy wanna seem friendliest
and no matter what land we on
we must know we some champions
to go beyond

chorus
Track Name: Forest
you could find me in a tree top holdin onto a
seed pod let it drop grow a new plot
it's the new rock and roll the new knock
so electrical yeah the new pop
give it up so we never have to close shop
and illustrate truth to those that know not
i see kings how they fight for the pole position
steady forgetting about the new edition
gotta be careful bout what we wishin
thoughts words and actions manifest our vision
still it seems we can't avoid division
wanna ask myself man who you kiddin
please Jesus forgive this lie i'm livin
need a handfull of seed you givin
still i'm one with the forest, and you can never
ignore us let the whole world sing the chorus

chorus:
Walk with us talk with us
comfort us time to put the trumpet up and blast it
pull us out the caskets hands
up to the sky stretch like elastic

Walk with us talk with us
comfort us volcanoes eruptin us
so we emerge as somethin else
and never settle for nothin else

we so afraid to die so afraid to fly
so afraid to live so afraid to cry
so sick of bein afraid i can't stand
on my own two legs man in quicksand
sinkin what am i thinkin linkin
concepts involved with drinkin and blankin out
not a surprise when shots ring out
in warzones where they fallin out and droppin out
floppin out like fish outa water
lotta sons and daughters without fathers
four corners of Earth many borders
drawn in dirt when He cross be alert
my breath is inert till i burn it
light up furnace service is how i earn it
and resurrect like a pheonix,
live from apocalypse it's that genius

chorus

Satellites and cameras
lookin in my heart where the contraband is
shit's bananas many things to manage
data overload got me weak and famished
hungry for somethin much greater
bigger than life bigger than earth bigger than my physical birth
i can't stand what i don't know still i surf on the
wave, search in the maze like a dojo
put a rap to a beat that's a cold flow
ctrl alt delete create a no show
yin yang day and the night the combo
man woman and child that's the bomb yo
beyond nuclear high vibrations like a nokia
no fear
rich like montequilla
livin more rogue than north korea A Dios

chorus
Track Name: Eclipse
on the 33rd floor of a skyscraper
mind stuck to his money like flypaper
buildin his empire but it's all vapor
cause you can't keep nothin it's a law of nature
as he overlooks the city and plots moves
thinkin of a master plan to lock loot
gotta control the globe he cannot loose
doesn't know he's a pawn he cannot choose
he's an elitist, slave to the biggest wages
every day puttin men in the cages when the
nightime come man he hold razors cuttin up
grams of coke to blow nasal
his friends are his enemies, enemies his friends
can't trust nobody not even his kin
and if he was to pass on with his mask on
would he loop back and latch on to live again?

chorus:
eclipse - something is blockin the light
could it be the angle i chose ain't right
is it you is it me is it my perception?
the future is bright yo light's my weapon
eclipse - play with the shadow graze with the
cattle - it's a fine day for a battle
so let's lock and load it's crunchtime
better be hungry son it's lunchtime

check it out yo
deep underground in a tenement basement
no windows but his face lit
by many screens what a scene his machinery glows
with a deep green hue like his petty scheme
he's a hacker infiltrater trackin data
wearin all black darth vader
seekin out a passcode to a motherlode
bigger than his last target so much greater
no contact with the outside world
chillin chat rooms with his shanghai girl
never seein human faces
only myspaces and facebooks twitter arrangements
never loggin off he stays in his cockpit
stays in control sleeps open optics
and when the daylight break he don't even know
cause he never see the sun or the moon glow

chorus:
eclipse - something is blockin the light
could it be the angle i chose ain't right
is it you is it me is it my perception?
the future is bright yo light's my weapon
eclipse - play with the shadow graze with the
cattle - it's a fine day for a battle
so let's lock and load it's crunchtime
better be hungry son it's lunchtime

in daze he wakes up another phase
words come from heaven breakin him outa cage
librations matured another age
no lookin back got ta turn the page
if he miss this one then he miss facts
no time for practice it's click clack
hit the target one chance to touch that
touch down and if not then fall back
stakes are high so brace your mind
push forward you can't push rewind
gotta go hard or you miss the shine
glory of the Father he mystifies
now is the time i show up with a code in the rhyme
read it and weep swimin the deep
ocean divine highway with many posts
that lead folks to the sign of the times

chorus:
eclipse - something is blockin the light
could it be the angle i chose ain't right
is it you is it me is it my perception?
the future is bright yo light's my weapon
eclipse - play with the shadow graze with the
cattle - it's a fine day for a battle
so let's lock and load it's crunchtime
better be hungry son it's lunchtime
