Track Name: Win When? (f. Professor Shyguy and brentalfloss)
Hello, my names Steffo, have we met? I think we have.
I’ve got a drummer, we make music
We stopped sucking, we stopped losing
We stopped thinking that we’re not as good
As other people rapping, you won’t like me
Now I’m angry you just woke a sleeping dragon
I’m not taking it lightly,won’t sit right with me
Picking a fight with me, cause we’ve been through
Hell and back,personal attacks,rumors,low blows and jabs
I know your block button’s wore out, but here’s
A secret,it’s a move we NEVER NEEDED!
We take a beating,get right back up
You think you’re stronger? We’re longer, I guarantee it!
So PLEASE keep on contemplating YOU are the BEST
‘Cause all the fans DEMAND the ATTITUDE and BIG HEAD
It’s hard to balance a horse on a pedestal that high up!
MY PARENTS FAVORITE - THE LIMIT BREAK’S BROKE
AND YOU CAN’T GRASP OR UNDERSTAND
THE WRATH THAT YOU INVOKED
MY PARENTS FAVORITE - GRAB YOUR CANDLES THIS IS DARK
YOU SAY “NO BARK, ALL BITE”
BUT YOU STEPPED INTO JURASSIC PARK
MY PARENTS FAVORITE MUSIC C-C-
COMBO BREAK YOUR DARTH VADER
LIGHT SABER LIKE OR HATE IT
IT’S THE LINE THAT YOU CREATED
GOT YOUR ATTENTION, YOU CONDESCENDING ATTITUDES
DON’T LIKE WHERE THIS IS HEADED? YEAH WELL
WELCOME TO LEVEL 2!
you cant take us on alone, we are everyone you know
every time you bitch and moan, we’re so happy to see you go
Here’s your I.R.L. check, YOU’RE NOT FAMOUS I’m glad
you’re too cool for school, otherwise it’s wasted education
Say what you want, about My Parents Favorite
We don’t ignore our fans, it’s a shared vacation!
You people are the reason rookies never get inspired
If you gave back an inch, they’d give a mile
Instead they just hate themselves and they’re
TIRED waiting for some reassurance they’re not getting,
‘Cause their idol’s too busy telling people how they’re “WINNING”
Track Name: Pangea
That was our motto, “don’t take it serious”
I guess you’re too good for songs like ‘Red Period’
I know they’re stupid, that’s the whole point
But you’ve gotta realize that you’ve got a choice
You never had to do this for anybody but yourself
But now it seems you’re needing everybody’s help
Caring about people that don’t care for you
And getting frikkin’ pissed when someone says “Steffen who?”
And what’s this ‘Steffo’ crap? It’s dumb, what happened to
‘Homeslice’, no lies, just having fun, ya know?
I don’t know what happened over time
In, fact I don’t wanna know, save your line of defense
You’ve lost it, thanks for giving me something
To look forward to, more talkin’. You know, say what you
Want about me, I’m not chasing ghosts, I’m actually free
ENTIRE OF ITSELF NO MAN IS AN ISLAND
MINE IS A PARADIGM OF TWO DIFFERENT MINDSETS
AND I DON’T MIND THE INTERNAL FIGHTING...
THE ALTERNATIVE’S BETTER THAN DENYING...
EVERY MAN IS A PART OF THE MAIN CONTINENT
BUT I’M LEFT ON THE DOCK THAT’S ABOUT TO DRIFT
I CAN SEE THE PANGEA FROM THE DISTANCE
BUT HALF OF ME WAITED AND MISSED IT
I’m numb, I’ve run out of steam, I get stuck
And all I’ve got to show for it’s a beer gut.
Look, I thought I had the solution, ideas, a purpose
A reason for thinking that my passion is working
I’m not trying to be serious, I just need the respect
I haven’t got much left but to be depressed
And saying I’ve lost it? Yeah, you never had it
So quit acting like your happiness is anything but magic
“So whaddya gonna do when you’re workin’ ONE job”
“And you can’t do a show cause it’s not your day off”
“Thinkin’ man I’m getting nowhere, wish I was fired”
“Can’t remember the last time that you were admired”
And hey swearing isn’t cool, it just shows a display
Of you being too dumb to think of anything else to say
I’m not saying that I have all the answers
But I’m telling ya, I’m getting them a little bit faster
You have to have the passion, the knowhow the money
(You have to have the passion, the drive, that’s all)
When the last CD dropped, it flopped, nobody cared
So what happens when the passion dissipates and you fall?
(You have to get up.) I DO (No, you don’t.)
(You have to have fun.) I DO (No, you don’t)
(You have to quit comparing yourself, ‘cause there’s)
(Always someone better, just do what you want, and have HOPE)
I need to find the grey area (NO! Screw a balance!)
(Just tip the scale, you don’t have to have it)
No, not with them, but I do with you
And it’s not a grey area, it’s more like BLUE
I won’t forget you, but I’m sorry, I’m taking you apart
And I’m taking the pieces that I want, to heart
Old, New, Borrowed, Blue
x4 guys left, MPFM take two.
Track Name: Lavos (f. B-Type)
Rock the crowd like Lavos, so get out your wax statues
Switch ‘em out, gonna be intense so Phoenix Down in case you have to
Gonna be screamin’ at each other to see who might be the loudest
But in the end, we all win, how’d this happen? Circumstances sounded
RETIRED? NO! EXPIRED? NO! A FIGHTER? YEAH! ON FIRE? YEAH!!!!!
Staying turbo, rocking Donatello purple Njnja Turtle
Hopping hurdles, popping girl’s girdles, making them infertile
Run circles ‘round the competition, like tradition it’s in the blood
Cleaning up the mess like F.L.U.D.D.
like in Sunshine hosing down the mud
DONE? NO! OUT OF LUCK? NO!
HAVING FUN? YEAH! DRUNK? YEAH!!!!!
Unstoppable, untoppable, conventional? IMPOSSIBLE
Deplorable, Adorable, putting some bubbles in your bobble
Crayola Payola making green, make-believe the sound is seen
Got a challenge? You can name it. Hey, I put the “U” in favourite!
DELUDED? NO! CONVOLUTED? NO!
SUPER HOT? YEAH! ON TOP? YEAH!!!!!
Overdraft, I laugh, my past is kinda like the Buffy cast
Mostly forgotten, sing goodnight, more like Castaway, amirite?
Buckle under chuckles, flex like Knuckles, hatin’ as I’m trainin’ shuckle
What am I wearing? Ill report, Captain America boxer shorts
CAUGHT BUBONIC? NO! HOOKED ON PHONICS? NO!
ARE YOU ON IT? YEAH! SUPERSONIC? YEAH!!!!!
Track Name: Thousand Dreams (f. Action Adventure World)
I must have dreamed a thousand dreams,
Seen things that I prayed to god that I could unsee.
Been haunted by a million screams,
Piercing doesn't begin to describe the sound at the peak.
But I can hear the marching feet,
To me in unison sounds like one giant beast
They're moving into the street,
I think, should I join or evacuate, famine or feast?
Now did you hear the news today?
Probably not, you sought to avoid the plague.
They say the danger's gone away,
But inside you know better, red letters are right in your face.
But I can see the fire's still alight,
Why am I the only one to see, the only one to fight?
They're burning into the night,
Do one of two things, walk away, or say what's right!
That there are too many men, too many people,
That you know in your heart jumpstart the evil.
Making too many problems, too many thoughts,
That you know in the end that they won't get caught.
But not much love to go around and let it be,
So open your eyes up, can't you see.
This is the land of confusion, the lost and found,
Don't give 'em a chance, be the final sound.


THIS IS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN
AND WE’LL FIND THE HEROES NO MATTER HOW HIDDEN
AND THESE ARE THE HANDS WE’RE GIVEN
MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY RELIGION
USE THEM AND LET’S START TRYING
THE ONLY THING LEFT TO DO IS FLYING
TO MAKE IT A PLACE WORTH LIVING IN
DON’T STOP THE RACE, STOP GIVING IN
Superman where are you now,
We need a little help brother come on down.
When everything has gone wrong somehow,
Where are you at man, come on help me out!
These men of steel, these men of power,
Marching through the jungle, stepping on flowers.
And they're losing control by the hour,
And they're probably cowering.
I won't be coming home tonight,
Tell the children I said goodnight.
My generation will put it right,
We're going to stand up and fight!
We're not just making promises,
We'll be paying homages.
That you know we'll never keep.
'Cause you know we've got the knowledges.
This is the time, this is the place,
Everything around us from the ground through space.
Though we look to the future, and the future generations,
To change the world, build a brand new nation.
Not much love to go around now,
No love flowing through your ground somehow.
This is the land of confusion, wow,
Put your speakers on and jive to the sound.
Shallow, dark, deep, wet,
The worst memories you won't forget.
Take 'em and run with them, what have we got to lose,
Bring it back from a top-down view.
Land of confusion, world of pollution,
Come take my hand I've got a solution.
We can sit in wonder as the stars fall down,
As the city crumbles down to the ground.
The door won't open without the key,
But the key to the door isn't free.
So we take off the hinges and do what we can,
Carry the burden together by hand.
Flooding all around me made my feet all wet,
But I've got my snorkel on, so really it's no sweat.
Who knew that the smog would wash the world away,
But I was probably going to destroy it tomorrow anyway.
'Cause I'm cool like that, like Apple Jacks,
I think I may have fallen off track. Oh, snap.
Track Name: Backtrek
Seriously, where is the energy? You guys gotta be
Kiddin' me, you're deader than Kenny G
Can it be that I'm just not rocking that hard?
Not rocking that far? Do I need guitars? NO!
Screw that noise, just turn around
Turn it to 12, you're gonna hear the sound
Just gimme my mic, you're gonna get it now
So put the amp to the ground!
Just split the crowd down the center like so
Un-shed some light, un-slide your iPhone
Do an anime dance to a melody of incredible speed
And do it to a Beatles theme
Eleanor Rigby, you say it's your b-day
I got you an octopuses' garden on eBay
I would've got a yellow sumbmarine
But they only had green
And the thing had a mail-in rebate
NOW THAT'S (NOW THAT’S) WHAT I CALL A SOUNDTRACK
A ROOM FULL OF FRIENDS AND A DRINK TO POUND BACK
SING WHAT YOU KNOW, IF YOU DON’T MAKE IT UP
(GUYS) GRAB YOUR BACKPACKS (LADIES) GRAB THESE CUPS
GRAB THE CEILING, SHAKE THE FLOOR
IF YOU RAN OUTTA NOISE, THEN MAKE SOME MORE
GIMME A CLAP, SOME RAP HANDS AND DANCE
BETTER GRAB YOUR BACKPACKS AND GRAB THESE CUPS
"PIP PIP! My name's the audience and I like team sports
I broke a nail mopping up the eastern seaboard."
You gotta try harder than that, you gotta go fast
What are you staring at me for???
Thor couldn't rock this lightning more than
Lightning could rock a fight-scene in XIII
But wait, sorry, I haven't played it yet
But I've just got a hunch that it's just not X
And speaking of role-play, pretend I'm your boss
This is your chance to scream your fill-in-the-
Blank off, Make off with a thousand decibels of voices
An eardrum of chemical poison
And I'll take it, snatch it up, throw it right back
Turn it into a melodic attack
You won't know what hitcha,But I'll fill ya in...
It's catchy...it's gold...it's ME!!
Well Jenga makes me nervous, so I'll rock some Postal Service
While I get my Etsy on,crafting Rainbow Bright curtains
Kicking kids and petting puppies,roller-blading in my Snuggie
Eating Pocky with Okami,while I travel cross-country
So grab your backpacks and grab these cups
You and I are gonna get tore up
You and I are gonna have the adventure of our lives
And forget what happened that night
Now we might've, I dunno, got a little bit bored
I'm pretty sure we stole a horse
Tattoo'd an ice-cream cone on it's butt
Made a My Little Pony so I wouldn't be lonely (awww)
Track Name: Pink Key
Well I’m back in the dark with another question mark
Somehow feels like the end, but seven steps behind the start
Now you’re off on your own, go outside and meet your goals
You don’t need a thing like me putting smudges on your soul
But then again I’ve never been about coincidences
Fate doesn’t have to MATE Mr. and Mrs.
Songs play for a reason as we go along
And we understand why we fought
I look at every red car that passes me by
I wish I hadn’t, but it catches my eye
I hope it passes in time, I don’t know what I’m expecting
But I guess it’s the next best thing, you’ll show ‘em
YOU’LL SHOW ‘EM. YOU’LL JUST HAVE TO FIND OUT
MAYBE YOU’LL GET IT RIGHT ON THE TENTH TIME AROUD
YOU’LL SHOW ‘EM. LET THE FEAR BE KING
LOOKING OUT FOR NUMBER ONE
LOOKING OUT FOR NUMBER ONE, YOU’LL SHOW ‘EM
If it helps, I’ll be fine. I’ll stop keeping you in mind
Stop this self-destruct the door shut, I’ll stop messing up in time
But as far as I knew, it was unconditional
But I think the thought gets lost with the unoriginal
Pulling back the curtain you saw the wizard
Just saw flaws, understandable with your back turned
Delivered the message “The Messinger Ended”
Never return to sender, lesson learned
Earned trust, but it didn’t mean much
When you hold your standards a little too high up
I can accept that I don’t make a dent on the world, but I’m content
I understand it’s scary, reality being real
And to a point I understand how you feel
But it’s not about what happens to to you, it’s what you do with it
And if you want perfection, I’ll ruin it
With what I was taught to be actual thought,
Now it’s all just covered in frost.
Finding your hairs on everything, bringing back memories,
Willingly, still killing me. You can’t take these memories away, but I wish you could.
It looks like you’ve got your priorities in order
You’re free, now go show ‘em that you’re strong
You looked fate in the eye, said it’s not for you
And I’m not afraid to say that you’re wrong
So one glorious day you’ll find a guy who treats you
The way you’d like to be treated
Just make sure when he beats you, you smile
‘Cause you were stubborn, but never defeated
The first buried me, the second dug me up
And to the third, the burn and the grave weren’t big enough
I wasn’t unreliable, I showed my skin
And I knew I was at risk of having you under it
You were afraid of life, so instead jumped ship
Made me want to die, instead of just live
And the funy thing is that I wish every one of you the best.
Now go show the rest.
Track Name: Run Left (f. Maros and Shammers)
Go outside without your shoes run barefoot
Don’t shave, go a day without a haircut
Pretend that you’re Captain America
And go around giving everybody big bear hugs
“Now there’s a guy who dances like Jamiroquai”
But when he tries the kids nearby, hearby
Give him the weird-eye (Kids, eat your Fruit Loops)
OBJECTION! HOLD IT! Random road trip
Toll bridge! But there are zombies behind us!
Find ‘em, blind ’em end up at the Yacht club with Katy Perry minus
Katy Perry, add a hairy man with a tan, her name was Steve
The Muppet Babies had it right,so make out with life or make-believe
So act a fool, drop bows like link,in the mountain fountain, you might think
That you don’t get anything back,be patient, be a man...
Be Mega Man, put your hand in your sleeve
Throw apples at people and tell them to leave
Believe in yourself, full health now open up the door...FREEZE JUMP
See I gotta go back cause you left my dog
Hog tied in a bog to a broken log
You're the clock, I'm a cog, here to make you work
Get down on your knees, please, praise dessert
Go ghostie, on a Segway,go to Burger King, have it their way
Start ballin like a baby on the subway
Throw up on your lover call it foreplay
Run in your local K-Mart like a man with squirts
THEN tell the cashier it hurts, then proceed on to flirtin'
Speed down the Rainbow Road, throw bananas at your foes
Burst into a church pretend you're Lurch bend down and touch your toes
Go Moonwalkin on Mars with an afro and a bag of Cheetos
Hum the Tetris theme and scream just like Mean Gene
Be obsecene and end scene and build bots and stack Mean Beans
And pocket these pamplets for free,who's gonna see?...LASIK
I'm collecting rings and coins, I'm gonna pierce them on my groin
Y'all can see where this is going, and I wanna know if you wanna join
I'mma kinda guy that'll rent a car Tokyo Drift when I parallel park
I'm not gonna stop til I find a star, zip your mouth this is WinRAR
Jump in a box like solid snake hang out in the park down by the lake
Wait for teen couple on a date, jump out screamin' "Her boobs are fake!"
I'll burn 18 DVD's, douse myself in PCP
Now they're swarmin' behind me, cuz I ran through a bee hive G
Game's messin up all the smart kids,tell me that the answer's obvious
Ask me why I don't blow in the cartridge?
I produce more wind (?) when I fart in it
Tell ya what we're gonna do,every single one of you
Better try my jungle juice,no one'll fun of you
Running left is game abuse,dats how in ts done in My Parents Favorite Music
Track Name: Callus (f. Levi Weaver)
A garage, it doesn’t seem like much to most
A pond in the back yard, an aging ghost
It lost the glow that it once had
Once loved tools retired, expired hands
Empty Coke cans lined with dust
Holes drilled underneath to keep ‘em from leaking
And rusting, these are the things that I’m trusting
I see every 6 to 7 months if my paycheck’s enough
Just for the gas to come up to see a basketball backboard
Rack with the memories attached, the deck in the back
The fence, the cracked cement
All built by a man with a plan in his head
I don’t know what it was, I was young, but I’m sure
It wasn’t this, the vines try to hide the past
And I still stand with a million questions to ask
But you can’t put a phone to a stone in the grass

I want to tell you about how I’m starting to know you
Take you to the bathroom mirror and show you
It’s Mom when I cough, it’s you when I sneeze
I want to tell you about my life when I dream
About all the bad things, and I’m stuck here
Wishing this was my last drink, give one cheers
Have another beer, I’m a cliche failure
The undertaker went and made you a savior
But I understand I wouldn’t make songs if you were here
And I wouldn’t have a story to tell on New Year’s
And I wouldn’t have the passion for rapping and lose fear
And when I think back, I wouldn’t have to choose tears
And it’s no news here, I’m happy when I’m sleeping
About all the times when I visit you dreaming
You say it’s not my time yet, it’s not that easy?
So what was so speical that YOU had to leave ME?
You make me feel like life is pointless
You get to a point where people are noises
You either go deaf or scream along in the mess
And I can’t figure out which evil is less
I know I’m not the only one feeling this
But this is my own way of dealing with this
We’re all mad, I’ll say it so the rest never have to
I’m supposed to learn from this
How can I when I’m mad at you?
And YOU had it easy, took it all for granted
Please believe me, I know you didn’t plan this
Didn’t plan a lot of things, and look what happened
Had to be proud, now you can’t see your grandkids
And I can’t get passed this, looking at my hands
Just WET from the tears, just SOFT from the years
Just January 20th, NOTHING is having me
Work for a family, work for a callus.
Track Name: Hyper Beams Forever
Mad, sad, last song, take it in the back and last long
Rap strong, do it right, stick to the fact that you can’t get it wrong
Bad, had, last chance, put down your flag at half mast
Rap race, do it, fight, look back, they’ve only got half that
There’s a moment when the portion doesn’t fit in the gridlock
The block’s a different shape, but it’s made from the same stock
Cut by the same rock, the outcome is different
So grab that same rock and break through to win it
Now you can sit back for a moment watch the colors
For a second, but the colors just fade to grey
So just picture in your mind’s eye the picture
That I paint,every time I fade away!
You see like me, the only differences are slightly
Skewed, the view you might see are likely hues of ivory
You lied to me, take it back, see a red door, paint it black
paint the world a canvas color, any color LOVE ATTACK
If you never push the world, don’t expect it pushing back
All you really need to do is push it forward one track
One lap, and the rest of the race doesn’t matter
And the time and Lady Luck are on your side so have at ‘er.
GIVE A HUG (GIVE A HUG)
LIVE IT UP (LIVE IT UP)
THIS IS LOVE (THIS IS LOVE)
CHARGE UP YOUR HYPER BEAMS!
ENERGY (ENERGY)
<3 (<3)
TOGETHER WE (TOGETHER WE)
WILL SHOOT IT LIKE WE’VE GOT NOTHING TO LOSE!
(CHARGING UP)
Do you ever sit and stare at the walls inside your room
And think “I need to do something to make a difference, too.”
And you shoot yourself down every idea that you get
Well, grab your Hyper Beam and change your mind-set...
All you have to do is open up the chest inside you
Nevermind you have some doubt, turn it around, now’s the time to
Bring every factor of the negative that you had ever got
Make a balled up Hyper Beam, release, and take a shot.
Track Name: Lost Woods
NIGHTS LIKE THESE, ARE THEY RIGHT FOR DREAMS
PUT THEM ON REPEAT IN MY MIND
MOON SO BRIGHT SHINING THROUGH CLOSED EYES
MEMORIES HELD ‘TIL THE END OF TIME
I remember taking a walk in the moonlight
The blue light eveloping, telling us where to hitchhike
You knew right then that anything out of our mouth
Was the perfect thing to say regardless of how it sounds
But you couldn’t put the feeling that you had into words
So you grabbed the first thing that you see that worked
Sharp rock to a bottlecap, poke a little slit
Missing a shoe-lace - can’t believe it fit.
And the lights got dim, the stars were invisible
The moon still blue,but out of courtesy ahead of you.
Better too, I remember you having a look
At me that was met with a tear of relief
So, nights like these, are they real or dreams?
Neither, to me they’re melodies or memories
Holding on to them forever, ‘til we meet again
The end of time, you know where, you know when.
SPARKLERS SPARKLERS everywhere
And the smell of cotton candy in the air
I remember every step that we took that night was slower
And it felt like the moon was lower, closer
Overheard good conversation, no good stories wasted
Nothing but the best food was tasted
I tried to win you a Bomberman doll, all and all
20 balls, gave the plush to a child
And I thought you’d be mad
Instead looked back and you just smiled
“This is wild” I thought, this memory’s never lost
Because when she walked away with her friends...
I never saw her again...
Fast-forward to about (x) years later
To a concert with My Parents Favorite
Played their set in the middle of the Lost Woods
Phones don’t work out here so do me a favor
Turn your stuff off, and light a lantern
Hang it up high, ‘cause tonight we’re campin’
Taking chances, it has to happen
Under the moonlight we’re dancin’
Fireflies, shooing stars, last kisses, smooth guitars
Bonfires, amusement parks, Hyper Beams, these nights are OURS
Times like these only come one time
So please join us in this final rhyme.
‘Til Level 3, we’ll miss you guys
Seriously, we love you guys.

xoxo MC & Steffo
