I've got a father, a mother, a sister and a brother, a son, a daughter and we hate each other; seems to be a normal family with a house and a car, but nobody knows reality 'n how cruel we are; we like to place some traps, now watch us step into; if you ever wanna join us, could be nice for you. All you gotta do is to win this game; to wear the crown of the king of pain; don't you think it's funny to strangle my neck and to refuse to tear the daggers off my back; so you wanna be a killer? You wanna rule nuke the rest? You better listen to this, 'cos that's the best: we are TAB TWO. don't you know we love you?

Hip Jazz 03:53
We do the hip jazz to move your big ass; we do it here we do it there we do it everywhere; you can call it jazzhop, heavymetallbebop; you don't have to give it a name categories drive me insane; it's just a few notes on the right time with the right pitch and over a bass line; that goes boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, booom Here we go, here we go to the rhythm a strange time; the perfect goal is hard enough to define; let's talk about the many bottles on the table; are you hip enough to take a zzzipp if there's no label; just a few looks at the right time; can make your heart pump like a bass line; that goes boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, booom Let's call it hip jazz to move your big ass; we do it here we do it there we do it everywhere now who knows to give the rhythm who makes believe no if we're slaves there ain't no chief it's just a few notes on the right time with the right pitch over a bass line that goes boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, booom The way we love and hate and what it needs to be okay can't be taught in school cause it's written in our DNA one look at the right time can make your heart pump like ab bass line that goes that goes boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, booom …

Ged Rid 03:04
Again and again you wake me up, in the middle of the night; don't know how I'll ever find some sleep; I toss and turn and press a pillow on my head; but the sound is getting through to me; every beat on your drum feels like a bomb in my brain; I'd love to throw 'em right back to your door; but instead I dial your number and again and again and again I ring your bell; but tonight it's even louder than all the nights before. Get rid, get rid, get rid, get rid of your little drum kit. I better try to think big and I think I try to cool down as I'm searching for distraction and some patience; but I can't relax my muscles' cos I'm blinded by sweat; I start to understand the wars between the nations; so you don't hear what I'm saying, stop playing, start praying; I'm running out of the place I can't stand it no more; 'coz every beat on your drum is like a kick in my face; and all the neighbours are watching here outside of your door; Get rid, get rid, get rid, get rid of your little drum kit. Alright my friend, come on, enough is enough; we come to see you, eye to eye, will you still be tough? But as we enter the place, there's no one home; there's just a tiny little drumset, all alone; but still there's noise, there's a heavy boom, boom; we realize it's coming out of your sleeping room and as we turn on the light it's the end of the fight; 'coz it's the end of the night and we all sing: Get rid, get rid, get rid, get rid of your little drum kit.

No Question 04:47
No question, what direction Where to turn and where to go Stop following bad attractions Changing your mind before you know No question, what direction How to think and how to chew Just listen to your brain infection Changing your mind before you do.
