Drapht Dancin’ John Doe

You can’t tell John Doe how to dance

See I can dance, I can dance

Like my name’s John Doe

No one knowin’ who I am

See I can dance, I can dance

Like my name’s John Doe

You can’t tell John Doe how to dance

Now he’s the chief

Dance to make it rain while the kids would drink

They’re like “damn, that kid is mean”

While the rest lookin’ like Mr. Bean

Or Pistol Pete, no, no, he don’t need

Nothin’ smokin’ hot hangin’ off his side

A little like Frankenstein

Cause the day that he died he came alive

John Doe’s like Sherlock Holmes

Knowin’ what’s on is elementary

He’s just like Michael Jordan

King by the time that he was twenty-three

So now you say

You can’t tell John Doe how to dance

See I can dance, I can dance

Like my name’s John Doe

No one knowin’ who I am

See I can dance, I can dance

Like my name’s John Doe

You can’t tell John Doe how to move

Blue moon

We watched him with his legs

Like his name’s John Snow

You cannot tell that man without a name how to move

And he was the man, imagine a man you can’t fight

Last man standin’, badness like bison

Phantom to dance like Michael

When he dance and smile, like Dick Van Dyke would

Psycho whenever the beat dropped

He had feet like Godzilla, the whole city would heat up

Soon as he would step to the floor

You know

You can’t tell John Doe how to dance

See I can dance, I can dance

Like my name’s John Doe

No one knowin’ who I am

See I can dance, I can dance

Like my name’s John Doe

You can’t tell John Doe how to move

No, no

You can’t tell John Doe how to move, no, no

John Doe just moved, moved like no-one’s home, he was

Animated but no cartoon, he was

More than human, just like you

But he knew just what to do

The man danced to a different drum

Rule of thumb not to succumb and run

Up in that place with the rest of the raps

Cause none of them tend to come back

John Doe’s like Sherlock Holmes

Knowin’ what’s on is elementary

He’s just like Michael Jordan

King by the time that he was twenty-three

So now you say

You can’t tell John Doe how to dance

See I can dance, I can dance

Like my name’s John Doe

No one knowin’ who I am

See I can dance, I can dance

Like my name’s John Doe

You can’t tell John Doe how to dance

See I can dance, I can dance

Like my name’s John Doe

No one knowin’ who I am

See I can dance, I can dance

Like my name’s John Doe

Drapht A Good Year

It’s too low.

Yeah, you know the style, D-Rapht on the mic,

yeah, kicking it wild like what.

Like, like, like what.

Check, huh.

I got a feeling now,

like I suddenly been touched by healing power.

Now I know who I wanna know.

Know this fear and loathing

is part of the show biz.

Won’t miss the train, remain namless.

Paint-stained hands and Air Max trainers.

AM campaign to paint us, knowing what pain is.

Ain’t down to entertain laymans. (Nah!)

I’m here with the caverlier man that we manifest

the best and standing under our banner.

Eric Banner, Goanna, Australian blooded.

From the motherland of the fucking Layland Brothers.

My sins are washing away this year,

but like Jason, addicted to the taste of fear.

My translation’s like watching a Mason handshake,

you only get it if you down with the fanbase.

A sad day in the scene we’re in.

My plan A was just to be down with the team I’m in,

but made mates, made many mistakes.

Made to play for pennies on slavery rates,

but that’s life.

All the nights I didn’t sleep because of this.

Felt ripped off by friends, stole the love of this

away from me,

but I had to let it go,

cos I now understand and I know that it’s gonna be

[Hook:]

a good year.

You gotta hear me now,

hear me loud and clear tear the ceiling down.

A good year.

Yeah, where we’re at,

all eyes on the grimm and we staring back up.

A good year.

You gotta hear me now,

hear me loud and clear tear the ceiling down.

A good year.

Yeah, where we’re at,

all eyes on the grimm and we staring back up.

Hey Trials, you know bro?

Yep, now my eyes wide open,

openly deep as the Indian Ocean,

openly free as an Indian smoking a potent opium potion.

The motion has changed this life.

I wrote this with a knife,

engraved a paper and prayed to the sky.

I was angry at the world, at a girl, no language

could understand how I felt,

it was anguish timed by a thousand.

Wanted to vanquish the problem,

but couldn’t fnd the power in me.

Wasn’t enough hours in the day to follow indies.

Crusade and raid the Lost Ark.

Growing up, swinging like Costa.

My Mum thought she created a monster.

Contain Paul was like a monsoon rainfall.

Live a colourful life like I sprayed by paintball.

A chainsaw tongue cut you down,

lose my temper soon as I felt fucked around

and that was daily,

but I had to let it go,

cos I now understand and I know that it’s gonna be

[Hook:]

a good year.

You gotta hear me now,

hear me loud and clear tear the ceiling down.

A good year.

Yeah, where we’re at,

all eyes on the grimm and we staring back up.

A good year.

You gotta hear me now,

hear me loud and clear tear the ceiling down.

A good year.

Yeah, where we’re at,

all eyes on the grimm and we staring back up.

Drapht Abuse The World

Blindfolded, dodging cannon fire

Adrenaline higher than your reach

Take a seat, I can’t and I rock a set like concrete

This beat’s taken hostage by Drapht

when nightfall sets, best not cut through our parks

To embark on this quest

I push myself to extremes, abuse the rules of death

Refuse to leave a mess, get dragged to the dust

My mind frame, the nice pain and feeds off lust

Hard to trust with a head full of hate

Keep my enemies close by hanging with the snakes

High stakes when heavy material drops

Better watch out below, it destroys on the spot

Whether or not this shit gets you lifted

The pure dope, you don’t need a prescription

Fit a description of a figure in your nightmare

The dream-slayer, my complexion is quite fair

You dare face up, kid, that’s a fantasy

Time to wake up, it’s too heavy to handle me

Human weaponry, spit with no concern

and intense sixth sense to rip pens and burn

I abuse the world and take what’s mine

I refuse to dwell on the negative minds

Get brought down, man, that’s out of the question

Live my life day to day and learn from my lessons

I abuse the world gonna take what’s mine

I refuse to dwell on the negative minds

Get brought down, man, that’s out of the question

Live my life day to day and learn from my lessons

It’s just a matter of belief

I seek for the right degree of heat to shadow when I speak

Advance to a peak and never decline

so face the facts and when it stops, press rewind

It’s crunch-time, you swallow or you choke

Just a dysfunctional kid that appears from the smoke

The mental note that’s stuck in my head

“Fight to death, never come off second best”

None-the-less disaster calls of the tribes

As Drapht sees all with telescopical eyes

Live to survive, arise to rebel

Street-wise, so fuck size, I only hide from hell

Beware, I spell words like a warlock

You better run for cover when you hear the door knock

A raw lock with Syllabolikal power

Night-stalking prowler, we hunt then devour

I abuse the world and take what’s mine

I refuse to dwell on the negative minds

Get brought down, man, that’s out of the question

Live my life day to day and learn from my lessons

Abuse the world gonna take what’s mine

I refuse to dwell on the negative minds

Get brought down, man, that’s out of the question

Live my life day to day and learn from my lessons

As that begins, I’m trapped in a heatwave

Trek through sandstorms, my bare feet grazed

Discover ways to release all anger

Bloody revenge, it’s a graphic world of Manga

I transform, leave you no option

Release more hot shit than a police auction

Toxic toxins enter your blood-streams

Take your legs from under ya faster than gangrene

Ghost train screams killed by the elements

As I roam this quite a higher intelligence

No evidence could shut down this operation

Burning sensation, Syllabolik organisation

I abuse the world and take what’s mine

I refuse to dwell on the negative minds

Get brought down, man, that’s out of the question

Live my life day to day and learn from my lessons

Abuse the world gonna take what’s mine

I refuse to dwell on the negative minds

Get brought down, man, that’s out of the question

Live my life day to day and learn from my lessons

Drapht Can’t Escape

[Verse 1:]

I can’t waste no time, I still remain a mystery

Mister D-Rapht is re-writing history

Quick to be judged and rubbed up the wrong way

Far beyond strong but I flip after long days

Songs play over in my head

Haunted by Hip Hop, won’t let me rest till I’m dead

Lead by light but in sight of the darkness

I’m quick off the draw like graffers with markers

Regardless of all the mistakes I’ve made

An ongoing avalanche can’t stop my rage

But still struggle, I can’t reveal a weakness

Bounce back as an outlaw with ghost-like features

Best kept secrets are best kept left

Regrets are for the weak, I plan my next step

Best yet, let time take its path

All bets are set on Drapht’s task to have the last laugh

[Chorus: Porsah Lane]

Can’t stop the demons in my mind

Ohh, you can’t escape the power of the rhyme

Can’t stop the demons in my mind

Ohh, you can’t escape the power, you can’t escape the power

[Verse 2:]

My mind sits between two worlds of fact and fiction

Building barriers for pain infliction

Victim of perfection, thought of a thought to mention

Every word that I mention is never short of attention

I’m indeed up to my knees with mud

Won’t budge, slowly swallowed by the rising flood

Cold blood, more aggression than some

Cause I’m misunderstood like a man with no tongue

No fun, sunk as low as a shipwreck

Disrespect Paul more than whores wearing fishnets

I’m in sets like the surf

Just like an alcoholic, Drapht lives in the ‘burbs

Plus I confer to work for my earnings

Rely on number one till the world stops turning

Learned to hustle the streets

My only means to survive is to think like a thief

[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]

Tough time, got many techniques to uphold mine

Refuse to dry up and rust, confined

As a bandit, yeah it’s a hold up

Dirty style, more triple X files than Moulder

Told ya, new age Ned Kelly of the century

Highjack on horseback, every pocket end’s empty

It’s elementary, what’s done is simple

On topic, hypnotic, telepathical signals

Simpled slightly, aggressive I might be

But every word that I spit just wraps it up tightly

Reoccurs nightly, highly explosive

The sound of magic ransacks with no motive

I came to ride the high saddle avenger

Remember temper strike the spite of your gender

So surrender, no point in tryna fight

Code red overnight, dynamics of dynamite

[Chorus]

Drapht Another Juliet

Yo, yo, yo

That’s annoying

As I listen to Bob Dylan’s vision of Johanna

Got shivers as he sung her name

No Orlando, no Miranda

No piggy in the middle like James

Randy Newman sung Louisiana

They’re gonna wash us away

Yo, I can suddenly feel his pain

Felt like he was speaking to me

Cause I’m stuck in the middle of a little bit of a problem

Got a girl playing a piece of my heart like she was Janis Joplin

I was Austin Powers: Man of Mystery

Was Gotham’s Batman, hidden a little bit of me

So she could be safe, cause her friends misunderstood

Like I was the joker, just no good

‘Cause I’m a ghost, no Rogue, no Patrick Swayze

‘Cause I rap, now I’m bad like dad like Damien

Alienated and painted me as evil

Cause I’m eating my quinoa listening to The Beatles

Refused to go to war for love

No clandestine lust, no Paolo and Francesca

It ain’t messed up, you restless

It’s messed up your best friends judge you but then you let them

I haven’t met them and they hate me

Is that me or the manic depression medicine you taking

She said we should

Only be together for six months

Cause then she had to go away and grow up

You see her daddy didn’t understand

She said we should

Maybe keep this love to us

Cause her friends rolling up those cigarettes

They’ll never understand

But I ain’t looking for another fuckin’ Juliet

And this is unapologetically who I am

I am, I am

I ain’t looking for another fuckin’ Juliet

Juliet

I was minding my own business, busy running my business

Way before that I even knew you existed

From a distance sailed in like Columbus’s ship

Changing my world, put a new spin on my existence

Should’a listened to my inner-self

‘Stead of the temptations singing me my girl

My Belle, Michelle, my Cherie Amour

I can’t help myself she got me good but I

Ain’t looking for a Juliet

I don’t need another Juliet

This is unapologetically who I am

And I ain’t looking for a Juliet

Juliet

As I listen to Bob Dylan’s vision of Johanna

Got shivers as he sung her name

No Orlando, no Miranda

No piggy in the middle like James

Randy Newman sung Louisiana

They’re gonna wash us away

Yo, I can suddenly feel his pain

Felt like he was speaking to me, me, me

She said we should

Only be together for six months

Cause then she had to go away and grow up

You see her daddy didn’t understand

She said we should

Maybe keep this love to us

Cause her friends rolling up those cigarettes

They’ll never understand

Girl you ain’t no Juliet

And this is unapologetically who I am

I am, I am

I ain’t looking for another fuckin’ Juliet

Juliet

Ain’t looking for a Juliet

I don’t need another Juliet

This is unapologetically who I am

I ain’t looking for a Juliet

Juliet

Drapht Don Quixote

I’m a little bit mad!

I’m a little crazy!

I’ll kill you!

They call me Mr De-De-De-Delusional

Institutional type, beautiful

Unconstitutional juvenile

Can’t be pinned down like voodoo dolls

I’m all romance, I won’t slow dance with puppets

Dusting off knuckle-dusters for justice

What the fuck is this world we livin’ in?

Seven billion idiots stuck in Darwinian

Acting like cavemen, we don’t play!

Chased them back in the cave yelling Don Quixote

Yo Don Quixote, Don Quixote

Cause I’m kind of sick of the real world the most days

Hey no, it’s not okay, no way José

This world broke me

Now I’m crazy like a coked out dope fiend

Wanna fight any type acting like Joffrey

Yo P Della spot me (What up, P?)

“Sup De-Rapht yo man we thought we lost you?” (What?!)

How you lose a man on the dance floor dressed in a Ned Stark costume?

Don Quixote, yo

Don Quixote, way-oh

Don Quixote, way-oh-oh-oh

See I’ve been tilting that windmill since I was born

The wind hits my sail and I’m gone

Don Quixote

[Suffa:]

I’m losing my sanity girl

I’ve been creating an imaginary world

Like I was on peyote, living in a fantasy world

I’m a bandit that’s abandoned the self

Not Bon Jovi, but I’m wanted dead or alive

In my head I might not ever survive

As I run from coyotes, shouting

“Are you men or you mice?”

Wielding my pen like a knife

Now, now, now hopefully

You don’t see this as a sickness

I ain’t lost the plot, I lost interest

In the everyday and I mean every day

On safari, in my head it’s like a getaway

And it’s never a dull moment

Living in my skull where anything can happen

From one moment

To the next adventure

Till I’m bankrupt, hand-cuffed, or a wretch in dentures

Don Quixote, yo

Don Quixote, way-oh

Don Quixote, way-oh-oh-oh

See I’ve been tilting that windmill since I was born

The wind hits my sail and I’m gone

[Pressure:]

Monday’s a bitch at the factory, me and the drones

Someday I’ll switch the gravity, keeping me prone

And escape is a nice thought, but dangerous type talk

When your manager may be a cyborg (there he is!)

I stay calm and acted alright (he touched my shoulder!)

He may plant a tracking device (oh shit!)

He now knows the card in which I’m playing

There he goes again downloading data from my brain

Suddenly there’s a blackout, time to act and leave

Through the back unseen, avoid tractor beam

Don’t wanna make trouble so if I pace subtle

I can make an escape to my space shuttle

Through a dark alley where gases are gathering

Avoiding the assassins of the Labyrinth

They say under these grounds there a grave in every paver

Sneak past the mounted surveillance with the lasers

To my time machine to a time already been

When my life was like a dream and I smiled at everything

Brushed a tracer off my back, accelerator flat

Man I’m gone, no way I’m going back!

[Drapht & Suffa:]

I’m the D—O—N, see?

I live life like you D—O—N—T

And that’s why they’re filling with E—N—V—Y

Cause my life is the B—O—M—B

One more time, I’m the D—O—N, see?

I live life like you D—O—N—T

And that’s why they’re filling with E—N—V—Y

Cause my life is the B—O—M—B

It’s a Don!

Don Quixote, yo

Don Quixote, way-oh

Don Quixote, way-oh-oh-oh

See I’ve been tilting that windmill since I was born

The wind hits my sail and I’m gone

Don Quixote, yo

Don Quixote, way-oh

Don Quixote, way-oh-oh-oh

Drapht Bad

[Drapht:]

See, I never really had that type of that father figure when I was a kid

Tellin’ me I could be bigger than BIG, bigger than Iggy, bigger than KISS

See I never needed a next of kin, no need for a Kim

No need for a Kanye’s girl, no stars on my side, no ninja’s belt

Hell, I ain’t no man no more, move the animals: Noah’s Arc

Rembrandt type of art but mixed with a little bit of Genghis Khan

Cause I’m mad (mad, mad,) they’re like damn that kids dope

Smoke don’t stop the flow like Willy Nelson up on that banjo

Young John McEnroe cause I’m mad, but never out of line

Cause I’m—I’m bad with my stance like a Chinese man in front of that tank

I’m back, back from the dead but I’m pure consciousness

I feel more alive than I have in years, I’m feeling kind of bad

[Nat Dunn (Drapht):]

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

(I’m feeling bad) Bad, bad, bad

Feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

(I’m feeling bad) I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

[Drapht:]

See I’m feeling like R. Kelly, I’m pissed at these kids

I’m fucking dirty if they thinking that they bigger than this

Hey yo, how are they thinkin’ they bigger than us, they lost

We walk around knocking down doors for a little bit of change like Red Cross

Won’t stop, I’m bad to the bone, I come from a long line

Of blood that’s bad to the bone like frostbite, will not be confined

A little Nina Simone, mixed with a little bit of Thich Nhat Hahn

Hit home runs, we all bout love, what my people want

They want the truth

[Nat Dunn:]

Truth, we don’t comprehend what them saying

Go and wave that flag

I’ll be the last damn one to cave in

I might be wrong but it just feels right

Is making my heart race how I like

You want the truth, I refuse to let them escape me

[Nat Dunn (Drapht):]

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

(I’m feeling bad) Bad, bad, bad

Feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

(I’m feeling bad) I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

[Drapht:]

Yo I got something on my mind, can I tell you what to do girl

Ain’t no lullaby got you dancing on the moon

Ain’t no come down, keep it up

I’m saying ain’t no come down, keep it up hey

Yo I got something on my mind, can I tell you what to do girl

Ain’t no lullaby got you dancing on the moon

Ain’t no come down, there ain’t no come down

There ain’t no come down, keep it up hey

[Nat Dunn (Drapht):]

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

(I’m feeling bad) Bad, bad, bad

Feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

(I’m feeling bad) I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

[Drapht (Nat Dunn):]

The darker the night, the brighter we glow, 60’s psychedelic

Sacrifice to that moon and you can’t fight the fact

That we back to back like high noon, it’s no joke, man we kill

Man, we fight to do what we do when we move

You know we feelin’ bad (bad, bad, bad)

(Feeling kind of bad, bad)

(I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad)

(Feeling kind of bad, feeling kind of bad)

I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad

(Bad, bad, bad)

(I’m feeling kind of bad, bad, bad)

Drapht Boom Boom Boom

Boom Boom Boom [x4]

My first drink I will sink quicker than the titanic

With titanium livers and no time management

Drapht Bali Party

[Drapht:]

We party, party, party, we party Bali style

With girls that shake their body, like we in Carnival

We party, party, party

Another hot night

In another world, with another girl who takes it off like

What up, what up, just jumped off a plane to a place

So hot, but can watch the rain washing away the weight

It’s sort of like watching the way Heather Graham skates

If you’re saving yourself for the marriage, not a good idea, don’t come here

A day in the sun and one beer

Girls running around in their underwear

Wear what you want to, whenever

Never a bouncer to tell you to wear that collar, or leather shoes

And I never, do and never will I ever

Be changing my get up for you, or you, or you

Won’t change just to wait up in a long ass line

You, you, I ain’t changing for you

Let me try one more time

Where the fuck you at?

[N’fa:]

Man I don’t know where I’m at

Them girls ran off with my sombrero hat

And I don’t care about that, she be bringing it back

I’m No Fixed Abode all across the map

Go with the flow like soda splashing

Full moon high, we get to dancing

Make virgins fly like Mr. Branson

Party on the beach, soiree in a mansion

[Hook:]

We party, party, party, we party Bali style

With girls that shake their body, like we in Carnival

We party, party, party

Another hot night

In another world, with another girl who takes it off like

[Drapht:]

What up, what up, clap to the beat

And the girls gotta move them feet

What up, what up, clap to the beat

And the guys you can grab your drink I ain’t gon’ get mad

[N’fa:]

Yeah come on move it around

If you like that clap right now

Yeah I said move it around

And if you like that clap right now, break it down

See I don’t sip draught

But me and Drapht be chilling at the bar

With a senorita with the fattest ass

[Drapht:]

Yeah I’d like to sink my set of Dracula’s into that

Coming out swinging, but I gotta bring a little bit of Jimmy back

Cause she ain’t gonna give me a chance

When my best move on the D-floor is the sprinkler dance

It was summer alive

[Hook:]

We party, party, party, we party Bali style

With girls that shake their body, like we in Carnival

We party, party, party

Another hot night

In another world, with another girl who takes it off like

We party, party, party, we party Bali style

With girls that shake their body, like we in Carnival

We party, party, party

Another hot night

In another world, with another girl who takes it off like

Drapht All Love

When I go out I go out with bang, gassed up like the Hindenburg

Full house, one King, four Queens, and a whole lotta bad influence

Some don’t wanna learn and some nights that someone might be me

Don’t have work tomorrow, oh my god that’s when I see

I see this cutest little blonde thing shaking her round thing

Gets club of Johns, home to your man

She got fuckers that will rock like block, she made me think like A$AP Rock

Wanna be with ya, my heart would stop like oh my god

Little love is all I’ve got, watch you all night long like Lionel Richie

Didn’t need a girl like Madonna or Britney

We can recreate the Sistine Chapel, naked on the roof, no judgement

Sorta see the world like customs, only get them to strip with substance

Love them, hate them, fuck them, date them part of the breakup like Jason Bateman, yo

This how things will come, world stops just to watch you dance

It’s all love

All love

It’s all love

Shake it girl, shake it girl, shake it girl

It’s all love

It’s all about love

I just wanna watch you dance, and watch you dance till the sun comes up

Shake it girl, shake it girl, shake it girl

Yo, it’s all love

From a land where the heart is king, she knows how to pull the strings

And she looks like the mother of dragons, made her Queen and the magic happened

Dancing Michael Jackson, dancing Clapton, didn’t matter what she putting it back

She the baddest, Hammer couldn’t touch her

My little vanilla bean custard, watch her thrust her hips on lust

Or feeling like Jim Morrison on magic mushrooms

I love you, won’t you dance on me baby, baby hello

I love you when you’re driving me crazy yo, and you won’t

I love you without knowing your name, heyo hello

Hello, hello, hello

It’s all about love

It’s all love

I just wanna watch you dance, and watch you dance till the sun comes up

Shake it girl, shake it girl, shake it girl

All love

It’s all love

I just wanna watch you dance, and watch you dance till the sun comes up

Shake it girl, shake it girl, shake it girl

All love

I watch her dance around the piano lookin’ like Miranda

Blocking the stalkers out as she walks with her hand up, sorta like BJORN with a camera

Damn Yolanda be cool, ain’t that bull in a China shop

Ain’t the guy that wound you found you out, ain’t try chase you ’round and tie you up

‘Less you want, a Hindu monk told me we all the same

And it’s all love

It’s all about love

I just wanna watch you dance, and watch you dance till the sun comes up

Shake it girl, shake it girl, shake it girl

Yo, it’s all love

It’s all about love

I just wanna watch you dance, and watch you dance till the sun comes up

Shake it girl, shake it girl, shake it girl

It’s all love

It’s all about love

It’s all love

It’s all love
