Track Name: Perfect Match feat. Mankwe Ndosi
[Medium Zach]
no luck in serena's fourth title
luck of the draw luck in the lotto
every organ in our body not vital
mine need company for the ride though
vision impaired didn't see clear
cute couple wife and i wear a similar pair yeah
teaming up like arnold and devito
cube and tucker french fries and a gyro
gas passing feeling burned
natural cure salt is an antacid
waking up can't find my fat glasses
frame fitting for my size randy jacksons
line up til i see symmetry
trim the tree finicky with my imagery
set it on a coaster limo and a chauffeur
reflection pets dressed like their owners
bored with an easy win might be funny
still i take a challenge like free money
hungry for whatever's on the dish
all created equal please consider when you tip

[Chorus]

the perfect match
burns bright at first
I learn to make it last
make it last


[Brandon Allday]
i'd like to send a shout out to jesus
and all the death his name has inspired
how could i differentiate the true to life
without the clergy stamped and certified liars
cold earth put a fleece on
out for a deal and put the groupon
measure my pride by the decibel
gun powder in the sky over occupied mexico
not family oriented hour
jumpoline castle bouncer little mermaid on the towel
stress eating at his stomach lining
colonized mind keep eating at his conscience
roadkill cooking clean it add ramen
struggle til death death only promise
W-B-E-Z don't tell me
feed him til he sleeping leave him laying on his belly
i don't bluff on the cross or the cuffs
carlos held him outside the red dragon
saw his eyes open as he bled to his passing
all for the colors but their colors were matching imagine

[Chorus]

the perfect match
burns bright at first
I learn to make it last
make it last
Track Name: Pure
[Brandon Allday]
this not work i watch daytime telly
maury it's not my child she's just jealous

eyelids tugging toward the floor
keep cupping my one hundred percent pure
support my brother i'm sure yeah i'm sure
we're coming in the fall
party like a young commie end up in the stall

push'em out the front door said come back tomorrow
hit the gatorade and the nasal spray
what are friends for if not a good laugh
don't look back raise a fist for the cause

understand my origin i come from a small town
called can't trust none of them not one of them
i put my name on a wall and federal containers
put it in a song sing it with me like vegas

master of the business no mba
keep opening doors no entryway
eyelids tugging toward the floor
keep cupping my one hundred percent pure

[Chorus]
come see the supplier x4

[Brandon Allday]
i came to earth my mothers first my fathers third
my brothers keeper skipping church
a bird in the palm is worth two in the bush
the other could be acquired come see the supplier

can i be frank i don't snort crank
i keep my mother's maiden name safe and out the tank
short of what i feel when i put it on a stage
everything i know i learned from a candle flame

it might sound curt i've been called worse
same name since birth
my understanding of the human condition
truth in the eye show recognition of

the brand names they love
make 'em buy a new top, do hair, make up
eyelids tugging toward the floor
keep cupping my one hundred percent pure

[Chorus]
come see the supplier x4
Track Name: C'mon
[Brandon Allday]
live out the midwest
where i came to earth and the place i rest
in love with a sorceress
she understand my lingo

brought her a bouquet fresh from the farmers market
she walk the skyway dress business attire
i pull up in the jetta at the time she expecting
still wearing the clothes i slept in

lifestyle of the creative hustler
author and publisher for the love of rap
my names brandon allday
thats my little brother medium

keep my window fan on indian land
great mississippi introduce a westside
chicano to a westbank hippie
big quarters since birth been lippy

just my line of thinking
thought it then ink it if they love it uplink it
he like big baby on the boards
check my birth name in the credits on the score

[Chorus]
c'mon c'mon x4

[Brandon Allday]
i got something cooking round tummy showing
party like a young commie i think the time approaching
hopped out saint joes in the 50s
now her sons known for flipping records and getting busy

tied up like akeelah and the beat losing
eating sweat marthas and the heat looming
i catch wreck when the stylus catching
m-44-7s popping like pete grooving

decor in my home look latin
style authentic dont come out the package
avoid the drink keep the smoke out the lung
he grown man now he do both of them

civilian garments 7 inches out the bargain
since an infant ive been out the margin
yeah gift for the host
unsigned undiagnosed heres a toast

[Chorus]
c'mon c'mon x4
Track Name: Savings Bonds
[Medium Zach]
Brandon liked sports games, I liked fantasy lands
we agreed on NBA Jam, not MVP
4th Quarter, my dad benching me
but became his star player, eventually

as a coach, he taught me put my mitt on the ground
eye on the ball, let it roll in
follow through, whether I throw or swing
make it connect to set in motion

Brandon was picky, and I ate it all
we agreed on pizza and burgers from the bar
mom cooked whole wheat pastas & spinach cheese omelettes
oatmeal each day, please stop it

no sugar and no salt
she wanted me healthy to help me grow strong
live long, I wanted her to care less
and my friends wanted parents involved

[Chorus]
know what you have
before it go
know what you have
x4
before it goes away

[Medium Zach]
Brandon remained sober and I'm the opposite
these differences, we rarely talk of them
parents out of town, party at the house
sound asleep, chris poured beer in his mouth

woke him up, broke his trust
to this day he thought it was both us
I didn't know till after the fact
another reason why this friend was left in my past

Brandon liked sports, and I liked art
we agreed on music and making our mark
we could only learn from each other
I tried to impress him, because he's my big brother

he was good at not gassing me up
nod his head and say cool, I knew that's not enough
my toughest critic, probably tell me to make a revision of this song
no one can break a bond this strong

[Chorus]
know what you have
before it go
know what you have
x4
before it goes away
Track Name: Never Leave A Crumb
[Brandon Allday]
i'm not a comedian but hang around long enough
and funny shit will happen, this party cracking

before rand mcnally, my family walked the land midwest to cali
big quarters, now we
destined for success or failure
either way, we getting what's coming good sailor

don't put me in the earth, no
put me in the sky if the demand don't meet with the supply
flip my id at the door i'm a donor
yellow tag special this vessel is a loaner

in the pocket, don't wait up
a couple new bills this week
pay what i owe 2 cent not missing
denny hecker's court records bad business

beware of the man with a dollar and a plan
get out the way or follow his command
yeah, i don't slur or stammer
if i took the train, i'd let her get my transfer

[Chorus]
miss daisy driven by ambition
value of a dollar blue yellow ribbons
heart shaped gift hard to make a living
do me this small favor

to forgive is divine
but to live is undefined
death is a shutter click glimpse away
for a moment then it rinse away

[Brandon Allday]
pass me the keys, i'll be the pilot thread it through the eyelet
paint another panel, print another strip
spray it til it shine, let the sun red drip
old betsy waving like she know me

let it burn, runners on first and second
by the time he hit third, coach send him
it not a hard sell
buy it, break it and put it on a yard sale

faith is undermined and overrated
television lie made the proud one sacred
made him love lucy made her love raymond
we boycotted grapes and california raisins

snacking fruit pies and a soda
go run the motor 'fore the slithering cobra
a rich man cheats his own son, feast on the young
a wise man never leave a crumb

[Chorus]
miss daisy driven by ambition
value of a dollar blue yellow ribbons
heart shaped gift hard to make a living
do me this small favor

to forgive is divine
but to live is undefined
death is a shutter click glimpse away
for a moment then it rinse away
