Track Name: Danger City
In the radiation zone selfishness is prone
If you don't got money then you don't got a home
Your freedoms a deception, its been dismissed
Smile it off yet ya clench your fist
Is drugs just a faze? Kids caught in school daze
Its parenting without the chloroform
The ordeal is real critical situation
Robbers pose as cops in Ajax home invasion

Zombies walk like sheep on Wall Street
Huddled by the fire is where the people go to meet
Before they loose it all can't pay the rent
Before they loose it all and get Dead Bent
All day everyday he wags his finger
But I doubt he can pull that trigger
Cause business man can't run the streets at night
Not when he's at bed at home sleeping nice and tight

Welcome to the danger city
Front row seat to history
Welcome to the danger city

Its the hipsters haven and its going under
Its the hipsters haven, welcome to the danger city
All of humanity is rotten to the core
Its such a bore, welcome to the danger city
Complaining Graffitis displeasing
Yet its just an art form, welcome to the danger city
Fuck the TTC I don't give no pity
And fuck rob ford, welcome to the danger city

Watch out for the police
Watch out for the thieves
You best carry a knife
You best get off the streets
Cause nobody cares nobody has no pity
Not when you're left in history,
Welcome to the danger city

Track Name: Natty Treble
Soul rebel a wanna be natty rebel
Turn up the bass and turn up the treble (HEY)

Too many acts of introspection
Ands its setting course on his depression.
From a bad bruk to a bruk out
He'll find his way out, I have no doubt.
Hardships that mold his mind
Cause he's the tormented kind.
But he's just a kid, learning from his mistakes
And I think he's got what it takes.

Slipping in and its hard to see he light,
No matter how hard he tries, or how hard he fights.
Its getting tighter around his neck like a noose.
Its getting tighter, and he cant shake it loose.
He's getting delt a shitty hand,
But in his life he's got to play the game.
As long as he avoids the third rail,
Im confident he will not fail.

Sky father shakes his dandruff on me
Its getting thick its getting hard to see
Slippin in, lack of vitamin D
Is this reality? It can not be
Tombstones are rotting no memory
Of the way they use to be
People speculating, people saying why me?
Self induced pain and self induced shame
Is this reality, it can not be.

-Ian Robertson
Track Name: Walls
Graffiti On The Walls On The Window Pain Says Im Not Alone Says... Im Not Insane.

- Ian Robertson
Track Name: Nobody Knows
I live in a busy community where people loose humanity
And they loose their selflessness and all thats left is selfishness
Something I gotta share a man named Joe once said with care
"Greed aint goin anywhere""that should be a billboard across Times Square"

Something Id like to see before I die
Is this quote across the sky
People need to start to care
Greed wont get you anywhere

Take whats convenient without good intent
That's society's undercover announcement
But I look around and what do we see
People with feelings like you and me
A rare breed is some one sincere
Seems we all got somethin' to fear
Must fit in, and be part of the crowd
Must be hard being that tied down

Rudy come (from) Jamaica, Rudy cannot fail
Nobody knows what the rude boy what that rude boy rude boy knows
London Calling, nobody knows what the rude boy knows
Death Or Glory, nobody knows what the rude boy knows

Rudy come (from) Jamaica, yah he's rough he's tough
Nobody knows what the rude boy what that rude boy rude boy knows

Nobody knows, what the rude boy knows

- Ian Robertson
Track Name: Long Run
Pondering, in a way I'm on the dole
Melingering, I don't wanna work at all
Learning, or is it all control?
Keep the young locked up until they get old
They threaten me and cause a fetter
Because I'm young and they know better
I'm calling em sir they're calling me sonny
They're snarky and they're not funny

I'm not thinkin about the long run
I'm living for today but tomorrow will come
I'll take my fortune as its coming
And when that fortune comes I'll hit the ground running

I look out the window and the birds mock me
Cause Im caught up in the system and theyre flying fancy free
I don't wanna work and I don't wanna study
I'll grow up and Ill have no money
Well Im wasting my time wasting my youth
I really dont understand, what's the use?
They say I'm a cat wasting my potential
If I'm doing nothing why am I going mental

I was up and couldn't sleep late one night
I was thinking about the world thinkin about my life
I was thinking so much that I may go mad
One day I feel so happy next day I feel so sad
No dice no go no more normal
Thumb down thumb down I'm (you're) informal
Guilt trip guilt trip society`s rejection
Like a feral squirrel no fur just pink skin

- Ian Robertson
Track Name: Day In The Life
In life, I don't know whats bound
Were kids fresh out of the lost and found
Told every choice we've made has been wrong
But we can't help it live fast die young
Foot slammin' with my guitar in my hand
Ruthless lyrics that you'll never understand

Loaded dice underneath the streetlight
Ruthless Ones prepared for a fight
Straight up drapes on a renegade
Robbin' and stealin' cause we cant get paid
Not thinkin' about the future not lookin' back
Talkin' what we want like your dad's Cadillac

Its just a day in the life
Livin' fast and quick like a switchblade knife
All we've ever done all we've ever known
Punk rock ways with the two tone

Deuces wild Im a ruthless child
Delinquent style with a switchblade smile
Crazy mixed up kid with an 8 ball in a sock
So you better watch out when I come walkin' up
Im goin' down town to steal some hub caps
I got no time to waste cause Im one hep cat

- Ian Robertson
Track Name: Big Eye
(Its typical its despicable big brother is here)

Watch out, Big Brothers watching me and you.
Whats the common man supposed to do?
Is our destiny never to know what's true?
We're part of the mass, slaving for the few
Cause the few got the money
and the few got the power
Can you smell it? I think the milks gone sour
Don't mess with it, just run away and coeur
Or maybe its time we "let fury have the hour"

I can see the fools gold
Get rich to live happy is what Im told
Im not too blind to see, thats not the life for me

Part of the few that wants to get ahead
We stomp on the week until they are dead
Cause we gotta get that money and we gotta get rich
If you're gonna buy your daughter
Abercrombie & Fitch
But Id rather be a hobo in a dirty ditch
Saving for value village.
Thats right, I wouldn't mind
Cause irie is what Im trying to find

Put up your hands, give in to the big eye
He's greedy for the money and he's trying to be sly
The chickens are rollin' on the assembly line
But eat the meat I hear it taste just fine
As the concrete rises, so does their wallet sizes
Toxins in the waters, Million animals slaughtered
Nobody gives a fuck,
Do anything just to make that buck.
-Ian Robertson
Track Name: New Life Perception
Im walking down the same old streets
You know the ones you use to walk with me
Hendrix, me and you always a crew
Sad but true with the angels you flew
My moral support and the one who stayed close
With everyone Ive met I think Ive loved you the most
Together again? My friend, I sure hope so
But there's something final about your tombstone

All I want is one more day
To say the things I need to say
How can I go on without you my friend
My new life perception

The sun never rises on a day like this
You'll always be loved you will always be missed
And when you look down I hope your happy to see
We're keeping it together cause forever DB
And I can not believe you'll never go home
My love goes out to your mother the most
Story gone untold cut too small
Now words of tribute are painted on the wall

Who would've thought 2010 would be the end
But we'll be together again my friend
August 20th, a day I've grown to hate
We think about your death every single day
Our memories I will always keep
Because you mean so much to me
I cant believe Im saying rest in peace
I'll always love you Alex G.

Raise your 40s and poor some for your homies
Cause their not gone, its just distance

- Ian Robertson
Track Name: Take Mi Away (Feat. Kid Tyles)
The Few, The Power: This sense of government
Try to explain reasons why they're bannin' it
It puts you under a spell, makes you rebel
Rebel against who? Rebel against the few!
My hearts beaten wont stop, got me goin' manic
My hearts beaten wont stop, got me goin' frantic
I calm myself down but only for a minute
I realize I remember Im a schizophrenic

The mans gonna come and take mi away (Hey hey hey)
For saying the things that I gotta say (Hey hey hey)
The mans gonna come and take mi away
Aint gonna see another break of day (Hey)

The only solution to end war is wealth
But were desperate for money so we kill ourselves
To buy those things that we don't need
While another man struggles to feed
His kids and his wife in his stressful life
So he goes to the corner store with his knife
Robs the cash and tries to run fast
But the big mans coming so he aint gonna last
Kid Tyles
Further more as you've heard before
I go door to door
You know the rich adore to ignore the poor,
So what you fighting for?
On a day to day its a way to pay
By the way I slave
You know my TVs on repeat,
Theres nothing you can teach me so feed me
Food for thought its not
What you own its not what you got
Its not what you stole its not
What you bought for hip hop and punk rock
Two timing Tyler and Ruthless
Religion is useless
Without music on this humanity movement
- Ian Robertson & Tyler Sewell
Track Name: Emmortal
Coming from the edge of the golden horseshoe,
Don't fuck with me if you don't like the Dark Bros Crew.
Im trying my best to not think about stress,
But in my life Im gettin every single test.
Im getting bored, I cause shit, I cant stop,
Cause idle hands is the devil's workshop.
Bustin rhymes is our collective action.
We analyze each rhyme to get some satisfaction.

The beats are immortal we pass a torch through the portal.
These and more tracks that'll make you go mental.
This is just a taste of the Ruthless Ones.
Waitin until we go off like a bomb.

A bomb going out to the whole human race,
Except for the ones that I just disgrace.
Living in the city but it aint sunny.
Im a low down and greasy, dont got no money.
But I wont stop, i shouldn't stop I cant stop,
Until I reach the highest, Im on the top.
Im condition to my addiction of the blood that poors brown
I cant get paid Im too afraid the kings not getting crowned.

Oh, I cant take it anymore so I take the 64,
I go up to Main Station to release my frustration.
I don't know where to go
Yo Elliot Bring the motha fuckin ruckus

Ruthless Ones Aint nothin to fuck with
Ruthless Ones Aint nothin to fuck with
Ruthless Ones Aint nothin to fuck with
Ruthless Ones Aint nothin to fuck with

Yo my name is Elliot, you may have seen me around
In scarborough, the beaches or maybe uptown.
Blastin in my speakers that rock steady sound.
Smoke a pound and say something profound.
Like: What's on my mind is whats in my head.
Too much crime and i'll end up dead.
I got no money that I can spend.
'Cause it ain't always sunny in the east end.

Alex G
Rest In Peace
Oh Shit...

Coming back from that attack
Aint shitty how we act.
Ruthless One's are coming through
Step aside don't spill your brew.
You're my boy and that is that.
Brotherhood is how we act.
Punch for punch, grin for grin
Explosive shit we pull the pin .
Sitting back drinking beer.
Not a thing for us to fear.
Starting shit at the door,
You'll find yourself laid on he floor.
Smoking blunts untill the top.
We aint' eva' gonna stop.
Keep it simple, always know
RUTHLESS is the way to go.
