Too expensive (Time is too expensive), (Time) Too expensive (Time is too expensive) (Time) (Time)Too expensive (Time is too expensive)

(Time) Whacha say, whacha say now?(Time)
You know what? Time is of the essence

My vast knowledge of rhyme is past college / Blast, demolish, polish off all enemies / I can't fall in this rap game / I got acrophobia / Plus half these rappers out here are fuckin dead like necrophilia / You know the thing, chocolate like Ovaltine / Comin down on the mic like eggs from ovaries / Monarchal metaphor, malevolent with settlements / Maniacal when Hiero flow, unstoppable and chock full / of funk the freak, so fuck the foreplay / Del has been ordained to terrorize your brain / The diagnosis, the show business bogus / My lyrics lash out, like I was throwin stones in a glass house / Rappers pass out, ass out / And anyone left on the scene who has doubts / Y'all fools ain't got no nuts I'm doin donuts / Slow up whoever show up, I'm too robust / So what? / I'm invincible invisible lyrics / Original origin unknown from here on in / Uncommon dominating hip hop / Permeating every portal with mortals / More flows Heaven scent, microphone etiquette / And lyrics up for your goblin and kill the novice / I write bad subjects like the Hobbit / And on to the next phase before you try to rob it / You know, D-E-L, yeah!

Chorus

Time is too expensive (Repeat 3x)
It’s too expensive (Time is too expensive), (Time) It’soo expensive (Time is too expensive) (Time) (Time)Too expensive (Time is too expensive)

(Time)Whacha say now?(Time) Whacha say, whacha say now?(Time)
(Time) Whacha say, whacha say now?(Time)
You know what? Time is of the essence

Supreme MC's reach out when I'm on top / Catch altitude sickness not to use fitness / In front of witnesses get with this fetch the funk / While I test the skunk, see I will caress the blunt / Come step through the flames of Hades or remain a lady / Rhymes infectious as rabies -- Deltron, hell on earth / Prevailing curtailing, you're shattered with data / Directed, my method, hectic, try and dissect it / Next shit, hydrauling we're calling you out / I rap with accuracy - I'm sick of fools actin like they blacker than me - y' know, usually bourgeoi' / We a new breed of MC remedy / For inner street jerks who wanna flirt with our sound / but ain't really down, silly clowns Barnum and Bailey rejects / Press eject on defects (yeah) / These threats delivered signed and sealed by the Delmeister / German for master, burnin the blasphemous / Whatever you ask of us gets fullfilled/ Non-linear, you couldn't find a flow friendlier / Or even similar with beats that knock / Those who cock block transport 'em to the chop shop / Operation X cause we often facin death / And fake ass players are lost and wastin breath

Chorus

Time is too expensive
It’s too expensive (Time is too expensive), (Time) It’s too expensive (Time is too expensive) (Time)Too expensive (Time is too expensive)
So expensive. Time is of the essence (Time is too expensive)

Lyrical master, turnin mic sessions to disaster areas / I'll wax your derriere / Disable MC's with fatal degrees and flows / Flamboyant flamin fools like mesquite, let's eat / These barbeques are for you / Were are the few the proud the Hieroglyphics / Microphone moguls with code words and hand signals / For negroes, spanish for black / I'll vanish your raps, at the borderline / Where you can order rhymes / Never monochromatic, y'all know the habits of Del / Talented, creating lyrical Gallaghers / Highest caliber, hip hop puritan / Throw my voice like Surrican, or ventriloquists / Until it sit in your cerebrum, I need them / Through the medium of music, too sick
The ratio is glacial, Gigantor / My flow is lighter fluid, you'll need a higher druid / Magicians and Mages, to curb my primal rages / My styles all over the place, disease contagious / And treacherous (what?) like Mussolini (uh-huh) / But cooler than Fonzarelli eating fussilli / With roots in hip-hop goin back to Whodini / Who see me, no eyes, your style is corny like bow ties / No fries, keep that shake for a keep sake / As well as patened Del hysteria / Malaria area, 88 bait for bitin MC's / They're bitin to see, see that's like a likin disease / My time is up, I take my mic and I leave

Ha, Ha
Track Name: If You Must
It's important to practice good hygiene / At least if you wanna run with my team / I'm bout to get into some shit that I've seen / This fool's breath, I mean so bad it'll melt your ice cream / They say don't say nothing if you can't say nice things / Sittin too close to him it will like my eyes sting / I try to be subtle, hand him a stick of gum / I was a victim of breath on him / Running his yap about what sets he from / Gotta get some gum gotta get him some / He turned it down, his teeth was brown / Excruciating for him and it was a new sensation / I had to ask the dope to pass the soap / Cuz his toe had the sniff of crustaceans / Or bathrooms in a bus station / He had a can of Olde E and some raisins / Amazing, head to toe B.O. / He didn't know, used to the fragrance / Just as the days went without bathing / He felt manly and not like a maiden / He had one dread, and fungus / Said he worked on peoples' toilets with plungers / Girls not the guy you’d want to tongue ya / So guys take your cue from this number

Chorus (Repeat 2x)

You gotta wash your ass, if you must
You gotta wash your hair, if you must
You gotta brush your teeth, if you must
Or else you'll be funkayyy

Cuts

Now at class you need total concentration / But there's kids in the back holdin conversations / Crackin on each other, and neither were poster boys / Both of em smell like the type that soap avoids / Coast and Joy, they leave their absence / One's fool's feet smelled like it struck some matchsticks / Brimstone, girls would never bring him home / I was laughin, then his friend raised his tone / And said, "Bud you rolled all over yourself" "yeaaa" / I know some people your ass should be submerged / Like you need to deal with water cuz you smell like a turd / Wanna cap get some courage, your feet smell lurid / Well look it up / And while you're at it, get a cup / And squeeze the sweat out your sweatshirt and drink it or gargle / You get our vote for most stinkiest / That nigga started thinkin of shit, said I was frail / I said he was stale / Underarms is ripe / Undergarments tight, about to leap out your holey sweats / And we holdin bets, and after this I'm gonna collect / Nigga check, yourself / Respect yourself / And wash your mothafuckin body 'fore your sweatshirt melt / Like radioactive, no lady find you attractive / The funk got you captive / You don't need a map bitch

Cuts...

Chorus (Repeat 2x)

You gotta wash your ass, if you must
You gotta wash your hair, if you must
You gotta brush your teeth, if you must
Or else you'll be funkayyyy

Cuts until music fades...

Track Name: Offspring feat El-P
Del - Ay-yo whattup El-P?

El-P - Yo whattup Del-phonic?

Del- Nuthin man; I was on the bus the other day man, tryin to listen to my Walkman. This motherfucker all in my face, ryin to holla at me and shit, I'm like, man - dude you just a offspring

I'm very interplanetary and vary with various experiments / Gregarious with verbals for your merriment / What El-P tell me to use, the beat di-ffuse / You lose and get played like a mood / I'm rude revolting leave you molting / No thing - compares to my compadres / We'll take it to Broadway / It's beautiful the execution flawless / You all wet, soggy, groggy when you saw me / But I never tire whenever I adjust my thrust / Females blush / I bring the California gold rush / Your flow sucks, your stamina can't endure / I manicure your lavender amatuer landed words / You haven't heard? Cannabis analyst / Add a twist to my manuscripts
I'l have you sent to the showers / Me and El-P, is superpowers like the US and USSR / Blow you like the Deathstar / Leave your chest scarred like Sagat / My plot proliferates, hits you like barbituates in a twist of fate and splits your face / It's the great DelTron-Z, soundbombing / Run to mommy, I'm airin out your dirty laundry / I'm shooting then executing you're aiming from mainstream / Your brain tingles, strangles your lame jingles / Bingo I bring flows that attack like wild dingoes / Can't be pigeonholed, anything goes gringo

El-P

Here we go - up jumps the outcast, sever the connection / My mostly overconfident acquaintances pull numbers to the anti-potients and fear that I drip sick in / And rise out of my shell to teach sick or bedridden emcees til they fear living / Blockin the cocks that bust shots, spittin smitten bitches til the day of the locust, kitchen cutlery cuts / DMX 16 crossfade with a strange lust / Dr. Strangelove, born in the back of the train, fameless shame shared with acne pick brain pit / Tried to capture the moment of subtle death / Destro magnet spit - action fit into capsules slipped in the dirty waterway speaker cabinets / Maximum b-boy axiom stabbin shit / Intellectual women find that my rhyme style relaxes them and wonder if I fuck to the same rhyme style pattern / It's autobahn pipe bomb glass fragment shatter / to break new jacks at after parties for actin actual / Factor X into your formula for fresh thoughts with a Megalon wingspan that bulge from the back of the text radical / Radio time tracks flatten your flattery / The tradition excuse used by biters; ambiguously homo / Knotted tights and colored underwear that's wrapped around the brittle legs of / things without weapons - I'm grief diseased brethren / Swim in a sea of shit and malt liquor, feed on Excedrin / Radiate through tenements; emcees bleed estrogen!

Chorus - Del and El-P

Watch insanity increase
Break it up piece by piece
Never weak in the least
Think you better see a priest
Mortality, don't battle me, it's costly
We the raw breed all of y'all is just the offspring

El-P - Yo Del kick that shit again

Tomahawking your Tom-Tom Club / You tried to holler at me at my show, lookin like you on drugs / You love the Del I'll thug you, bumpin Juvenile / Thinkin you in style, packin like you movin now / I move top speed, scott free with cock-D / Knock-kneed delivery that scorches you like Lockheed / Dr. Decibel, my deliverance is questionable but as far as this session goes I'm wreckin skulls / Better check your pulse, we visionaries with this / Scarin the shit outta record labels next to fatal / Right beside homocide bonafied bewilderment / Militant diligence like I'm buildin pyramids / Peel your cap reveal your lack of flavor / Track your pager plus your celly / Piss on your Pelle Pelle, catch you comin out of belly / Dumbin out daily, tell me, what was your rationale / Think of matchin Del I disconect your PacTel / My mobile code words, showboat with no hope for any rhyme you kick or any beat you load up / Leave you catatonic off a bag of chronic / Skanless with anthems / Stomp your little cadence out at random

El-P

Ran-random, ran-random / El and Del-aphonic known to go off on a tantrum
Now you know.. / For the backpackers, for the computer hackers / For the misplaced famous, for all the video gamers / For the derranged krylon stain makers / For the ungry hungry ass verbal brain rapists / That New York to the Bay shit!

We’re gonna need back up
Send in Del and the Hieroglyphics
10-4

I think it’s time to get the zap board / The rap lord has disembarked to restore the missing parts / For all ya’ll, stiffer than starch / You know the pictorial symbol / Portable nimble brain waves got my grimy chains jiggling / I’m burning at Higher Learning like Singleton / Single out simpletons with stylings such as intercon / It’s the bomb let’s get it on / Mr. Bombay to you / Slay a crew You never paid your dues / You’re testimony phony bologney / And boney with only a wooden leg to stand on / Like a pregnant panda in the wilderness and I’m the wildebeast / And I see you still a thief with my style in the grill of your teeth / Diligently apealing with speech with militant beats / in and of leaks to let my feet miss the freeze / Mysterious blistering like the gold on Mr T Handicap your voyeurism destroy your vision / Massive with gashes no defended forms step in the swarm of bees leave with hives / Rhymes conceive with knives of flesh / While your wild as exile / My text styles spookier than x-files / You fruity like a pedophile / After the battle cries thats when I metabolize / While you fantasize I antagonize like replacement killers ease your filler / Riduculous, meticulous / Fry you like a chicken breast / Fuck your smith n wesson / Pull you out of the oven get the dressing / With possession / Question all directions / While you still a suck petulence / Stuck dwelling in the past.

Chorus (Repeat 2x)

Pull over, get out of the car (You’re under arrest)
Slowly put your hands behind your head legs crossed(You’re under arrest)

I do it till I feel fine / Real rhyme / Still time / Stop frame / Drop change / Rock brain / Stock exchange / Mock my name / There’s not a lot to gain from that / When I’m up to bat its like you trying to duck a gat / You commonplace / I shift time and space / Leave your mind erased like the year 2000 and data replaces the faces / Cause there is no oasis / I wield your locations / A military pack of black tornadoes / I Fernando Slam ya on a amble / Scrape you with a breakthrough / Lacerate your plastic face acquired though plastic surgery / I leave your flow burgundy and crimson limbs and arteries / Down in the chart MC’s / As I’m sipping margaritas its a part of the feature from the particle preacher / Universal ubiquity when you sit with me and chat / You will get to see a fat flow that fried your brain cells like formaldehyde or alkaline / Check the words now combined / Leave you with powder burns / Deltron Z has now returned / My dogmatic songs average rap artists / I’m an author who augments my solstice to the tip with my groove essentials / I’m coming in a hydrofoil spreading hydroponics / While you chasing the dragon / Like your facing a magnet / My brain is digital playing with analog controllers / Force movement in increments with instruments

Chorus (Repeat 2x)

Pull over, get out of the car (You’re under arrest)
Slowly put your hands behind your head fingers crossed(You’re under arrest)

I think we got’em, Uh I think we got’em. Lock’em up and throw away the key
Hieroglyphics is in the house. Yeah, yeah.

You know I gotta handly my sponsitility / Along with pillaging on a crusade of the real mc’s / A million reas / Like zip lock I seal and freeze / Better than stealing keys or killing sprees / You ain’t worth a hill of beans ratio / To the text I target and tilt / Best use is bottling milk / The model of filth / Who’s the nastiest / Who would ask me this? / You better acquiesce before you take a half a step / Eager like a bachelorette with a lack of respect / Like a youth clacking a tec / The whole attraction is death / Plethora’s electra to beasto / Come to my creepshow to logic is lethal / I repo your flow / Resuscitate, reanimate / So now its the candidate most likely to luminate / In other words who wanna get reversed / I hand a place of heaping helping / You’ll be belching /Go and sale it / While your choking / Your eyes are open / Acupuncture a private poking and I ain’t joking / Why this evening, I feel like crying Freeman / With the rhyme and reason mixed with violent feelings / Anything that I can squeeze in to make you decent / At a rate that is sure to agitate like you bought bag of shake / My minds data place plus a batter’s box / That’ll regulate your rowdy boos like Im Donahue / I’m omni calmly bombing your brownstone / Till the cow’s home / Well and dial tones / Crash through the embassy disrupt the assembly / Dislocate your whole fake industry, horrendously

Ok, let’s start / Child birth the rhyme and leave stretch marks / Etch art with text darts / They cardiac arrest hearts / Next stop is where i shop at the Fresh Mart / Sale on Ale and all the bomb you want / The best no counterpart / I take my rhyme around the park and piss on you like a hound of art / Down to spark leaves and all unbelievable / I see through walls when evil calls I feed’em balls / Agent of derangement / Entertainment tainted when insane it’s flagrant / File frag your famous cadence / You’ll never make it to day break same face / You’re just a grey space / I lay waste with written fragrance rancid / I can’t miss enhancements allow me to advance quick / With antics of terror with your trustees / I bust these as rapidly as slush freeze You must need parental guidance / Your mental is out of alignment / My mind set is the finest The pen of you jack off all to often / While you sleeping she contaminate your sperm and offspring / I offset any threat to my nature / Face you with 8 flares and a sabre / Pave ya till i hit pay dirt / While you blaze dirt / I flame the greenest bomb (I got 5 on it) / For what better never see your palm / You peeping Tom / I’ma need the whole force of my crew to keep me calm / I sneak bomb to your mesa / Disgrace to waste ya / Leave a stain the size of Asia / Imperial premier poet / My perch can never be usurp by mere syllable surfs / Take for gospel like you here it in church (well)

Soopa Feen Banter

He got his Garfield and Otey beach towel for his cape / And safety pin he use to clean the screen / Now he’s a vigilante on Delancey then ran to Chancellor looking for his counselor(his trusty sidekick Faultor) for an ounce or a sack at least / Well actually he got the master keys / More practices in the crack game where they got a factory / Soopa Feen is skinny can slide through small areas for quick getaways / While Faultor pull the Derringer / That’s his ace / Shiesty as fuck / His specialty is gafflin niggas, extorting their bucks / His best power, the invisible gank / If in your wallet there isn’t no bank / He contacts Soopa Feen with telepathy Saying you need crack man, I need amphetamines / He’s faster than a speed trip / Stronger than a nigga on ‘ron / He think he a superhero / He just gone

Chorus - Del and KU

Let me tell you about the Proto Culture
If you don't know the culture, here's the whole structure
We've had enough of the lackluster-trust us
We get the kind of games you can't rent at Blockbuster

KU

Game related, raise it bit by bit
Yo D, link up the cable we'll go hit for hit
Phantasma plasma particle beam means I have ya
on the run-the rendered effects hot like magnas

Del

I play games by Capcom with a power glove strapped on On any platform
I don't spend my dough on Phat Farm
Video games, I got many to play
Before my life expires; fufill my desires

KU

Mastering your hardest boss
Shattering all stars across
Ain't hard to cross the finish line
Floatin' on Daytona
Wex, Gex or Kloana, we get ‘em all at cost
RPG, Platform we transform like Macross

Del

Rival schools, Batsu
Purchase you ought to
It came with one free CD, it's like I bought two
I hope they make part II for Dreamcast
‘Cause games I've seen in mags, you won't believe they have!

KU

Getting callouses turning over asteroids
Graviton bombs destroyed
Getting moms annoyed
Now I'm hacking Nightmare Creatures
Their features splattered across the screen
It gets more clean each year

Del

I remember my homie Ed Coats had the most
A Colecovision-every week I'd visit
Playing Donkey Kong Jr., Venture, Rock and Rope
Games I thought was dope
While my moms was watching soaps

KU

I'm on the next level
I got a double barrel shotgun in the Doomworld
Waiting on the next devil
Armor's low-check the arsenal
Rupture the main conductor playin Disruptor

Del

I remember Ninja Gaiden
Finished finally
With Ramone wouldn't answer the phone
This was before getting blown
I own the first Nintendo Power
With the maps of Zelda Help me conquer in an hour

Del

Hey KU you know my SEGA collection is massive
Got all the past hits and classics
Herzog Zwei now Panzer Zwei
Originality that made me a fan today

KU

It's Pandemonium-it's like Toys R Us
Flippin the next Saturn game brings out the boys in us
It's poisonous
Taking out the boys in blue in Grand Theft Auto,
Snatch a Rolls Royce to use

Del

Yeah, I'll admit Playstation improved
Come visit Feudal Japan with me and Tenchu
Bushido Blade 2 with sword play so accurate
Mega Man Legends but I had to buy a map for it.

KU

I fence Hyo to get a Neo-Geo
For Samurai 64 in full rendered splendor
Rival counter and enter my sword in his innards
My joint was being Leonardo wuppin' on Splinter

Del

I gotta get Xenogears-that's the type of game that relieves my fears
Get it from overseas to here
I gotta get Psychic Force
Authentic arcade that I can endorse
They got me liking imports

KU

I'll need to be at the next E3,
What's the next CD I need to see
Me and D signing checks
Let's float overseas, mingle with game companies
Giving tips to Capcom and Sega-you can't front on these

Del

To anyone who knew me better
Know I chose Saturn first Cause it's 2-D heaven
Bernie Stolar dropped the ball with the RAM cartridge
X-men Vs. Streetfighter could've expanded the market

KU

Marvel Vs. Capcom-beyond fathom
Tell the truth, Playstation ain't ready to have ‘em
Come on I'll bring the onslaught
Alpha and Omega
Khaos Unique brought to you by SEGA.

Check it out / It's a revolution in you head I'm boostin' / Like I read the future / My execution / Used as a stimulate to get you into it / Show you my sentiments / Mental leasing the flicks / Don't hate, Facilitate / Whenever you get the break / It's always a risk you take / Doin' a different take / Big mistake rappers make / The cake / They want it now / So they copy whose the hottest now they soundin' funny style / I know you hungry pal, me too / I need food / But I don't redo what he do / I'm lethal / Like ginseng root / Go ahead, attempt to shoot / Invincible / It's flawless like a dentist' tooth / Oblivious to all this ignorance / They need to get a grip / Don't be an idiot / In a high state, I transmigrate / To a fly tate / Make you wanna get cha life straight / I'ma introduce the places that I ventured to / I get cha proof of a Hip Hop institute / It's the truth / I'm just being hospitable / Sittin' bull / The chief I seek the hidden jewels / Some just complain about the status of rap / They say it's average in fact / They wish the 80’s was back / I say everything's everything / Nothin' stay the same / And yet, it is the same just given a different name / Money's all that matter to you, you sniffin' 'cane / You need to uplift you brain, forget the fame / You say you get power, if you get money / How you get those if you just a dummy

Chorus

Just stay on your toes man
In this world that's just how it goes man
In Oak-land, gotta get with the program
With flows I wanna control the whole land
You just gotta stay on your toes man
In this world that's just how it goes man
In Oak-land, gotta get with the program
With flows I wanna control the whole land
And keep growin'

A-Plus

Nowadays I hear the same crap / Complain rap is trendy not to give anybody with a name dap / When did that start / It sound childish / You went to college, but I think you need some extra mileage / Underground cats disrespect who that don't listen to (Yeah!) / If you looked at my CD rack they'd (you'll) probably diss me to / That's so weak / Don't speak when a niggarole creep / Or I'm finna go deep / I heard a MC in a cipher straight lyin' / Damn near cryin', talkin' bout real Hip-Hop's dyin' / That's some dumb shit / That's what I was thinkin' (Uh-huh) / But I didn't say nothin' to him cause I knew that I been drinkin' / He must be blind as hell / Hip-Hop is alive and well / He ain't got the mind to tell / I rhyme with Del / Drink Guiness combined with Ale / Never been inclined to fail, applyin' the skill / I be tryin' to build with the close-minded / But they so blinded I get upset and they get clothes-lined / Don't hate on nobody / Stay on your toes / Even if he got platinum or gold on him / Stay on your toes / Underground to commercial cat / Stay on your toes / I know them or I ain't heard of that / Stay on your toes / From backpacks and licorice sticks / To black macs with ammunition and clips / Man I can get with this shit / Yeah, it's all the same / Some of y'all call it game / Say it's either for the props or the fame and all the change (What!) / Use what you call your brain (Ha!) / The whole aim / Home on the range / Just stay out my lane

Chorus

Just stay on your toes man
In this world that's just how it goes man

With flows I wanna control the whole land
You just gotta stay on your toes man
In this world that's just how it goes man
In Oak-land, gotta get with the program
With flows I wanna control the whole land
And keep growin'
