    I've re-scanned the Rapology Thriteen CDs as these had fingerpints and even my cat's hair on it. The other scans look completely clean, but these two CDs look way better now:

    :rofl: 10/10

    Also love that Illmatic sample on Fiends

    Guys, I think Mark is on Fiends. I hear Mike say in the second verse, "Me and Mark transform.."

    The second voice of Fiends on the background at around minute 1 really remind me of one of the early xero demos where they did something really similar, so It might be him after all.

    I think Mike may have repurposed some lines from Fiends for It's Going Down but that's also brilliant!

    need some help with the drop lyrics. working on fiends now but it's such gibberish/weird phrases that it's tough.

    I think he says kazinsky from star trek, not kadinsky the russian artist.

    hi
    we're back
    kenji, artofficial
    rapology 13

    why do these people have to get in my way
    i'm losing more and more pity for idiots every day
    say what you want about my outlook, i'm pessimistic
    but you're the one who watches jerry springer _______ this shit
    just the other day I saw my neighbor on the show
    cause her cracksmoking kids were fucking a dog when she came home from work
    and it was her beastility videotapes and crack rock that gave them all the ideas in the first place
    not even worst case scenario, it's everywhere I turn
    rap records still coming out talking about how they got money to burn
    and joe can't get his turntables fixed
    and this hunchback repair man with a hairlip is a fucking lunatic
    when all we gotta do is fix the AC cord that blew out
    and this dude's charging us seventy two bucks to take the screws out (that's ridiculous)
    i'm fed up and i'm doing all i can do to move to a deserted island and make my own shit out of coconuts and bamboo

    the world's nothing but a can full of idiots
    the world's nothing but a basket full of stupids
    the world's nothing but a bucket full of morons
    i don't wanna talk to you so don't look at me
    the world's nothing but a can full of idiots
    the world's nothing but a basket full of stupids
    the world's nothing but a bucket full of morons
    i don't wanna talk to you so don't look at me

    now i'm starting to think that kazinsky (felt?) i had a good point
    my grandpa's popping valium and viagra, smoking joints
    cause the doctor said it would cure his anxiety attacks
    but the reason he's so anxious is he's doing all that smack
    and my cousin pete the phone sex freak went to vegas with one of the operators and she drove off in his mercedes
    and he went around town alone and he gambled all his cheddar
    now he and grandpa sit at home and shoot heroin together
    but that's what happens in a world of heathenists and heretics
    teachers get paid less than cops and psychotherapists
    cause it's pretty damn important to give you a ticket for a headlight so you can get home safe and visit charles manson's website
    or see the shrink to get your head right
    or get on the road and get hit by a slobbering drunk driver running a red light
    or get murdered by mr. green in the alley with a lead pipe
    or sing the chorus because it's alright

    the world's nothing but a can full of idiots
    the world's nothing but a basket full of stupids
    the world's nothing but a bucket full of morons
    i don't wanna talk to you so don't look at me
    the world's nothing but a can full of idiots
    the world's nothing but a basket full of stupids
    the world's nothing but a bucket full of morons
    i don't wanna talk to you so don't look at me

    Is it "heathenists" or "hedonists"?

    the last sentence looks correct to me, playing it at a slower speed makes it a bit more evident

    Okay, first it's Kaczynski, as in the Unabomber. Second, I think got most of the lyrics to "Fiends". Someone else transcribe the bridge because I'm lazy.

    I know right!?

    Mike's early style of rapping is the only thing I miss from the band's first few years.

    The "exhale the smoke from molotov cocktails" line in Fiends is sampled from Emcee 007's verse in Spies Like Us by Styles of Beyond, hence him also being credited on this song.
