Track Name: Some Kind Of Hero
Verse 1:
I was 12 years old when I decided to rock the nation //
I was sick of school, I was tired of indoctrination //
I needed somewhere to hide so I locked the basement //
and grabbed the microphone with a smile as I blocked the hatred //
from those who doubted me 'cause I could do without it, see //
I knew what I wanted to do, 'cause music is allowing me //
to be free now as I look out over the crowd I see //
these kids reminding me that dreams are never out of reach //
so I'll keep conquering from north, west, south to east //
'cause nowadays I've got more than one mouth to feed //
(you see) I went from gravel and pebbles to mountain peaks //
so look at me now mom and dad, aren't you/I bet you're proud of me?... //

Once again - here I go //
walking down that same old road //
I've been high, I've been low //
I've been lost but now I know //
it's my life - it's my pain //
I've seen sunshine, I've seen rain //
through the storm - look at me //
and you will see some kind of hero... //
Some kind of hero... //
Some kind of hero... //
Some kind of hero... //

Verse 2:
Watch me turn a simple song into a masterpiece //
right in front of everyone who's ever laughed at me //
stepped all over my dreams and had me doubting myself //
[ From: ]
'cause the first time they did I made a vow to myself //
to never set my dreams aside for anything //
that I wasn't going to hide, just write, but many things //
came in my direction that I couldn't quite understand //
couldn't comprehend, that's why I became a running man //
staying up late nights trying to cure my stagefright //
barely seeing daylight, living an insane life //
it was obvious that I was running out of fuel //
but I didn't give a damn that I was flunking out of school //
this dream was all that I had and I would die before I'd let 'em take it //
man, you must be blind if you can't see my dedication //
it's so much more than just ink on a paper //
so my spirit will live on through the tunes I've created... //

Verse 3:
Yeah, I admit it, there were times I was sick and tired //
they thought I was gone but this dragon's still spitting fire //
so focused, while these other cats sat back //
I just kept marching with the swagger of a badass //
I'm doing things that these legends have never done //
and you know the funny thing is; I'm only 21 //
but they keep denying there's a legend in the makings //
waiting for me to abdicate when this is just my coronation... //
Track Name: Homesick
Verse 1:
I keep thinking 'bout the dream I had last night //
can't remember how long it's been since the last time //
we sat down, had a proper conversation //
I know that the way I'm living is causing complications //
and it weakens me, it's overwhelming //
when I try to call you but ain't got no reception //
on my phone, I'm alone and it's crushing my hopes and //
aspirations, there's a sudden rush of emotions //
and sometimes when reality escapes //
my mind, I thank God that I'm man enough to say //
when I made a mistake and admit that I was wrong //
I just take my feelings, make 'em fit into the song //
and sing it to you, I just hope that you can hear me //
(hear me...) and see the real me 'cause I can see you clearly //
then I wake up, shaking and shivering, cold sweats //
all over my body, I'm feeling homesick... //

Here we go now, baby //
I've been on the move for so long //
the road is getting darker //
pray that you will lead me home //
and I don't know, girl, maybe //
I've run out of reasons to hold on //
but then I hear your voice and //
know that it will lead me home... //

Verse 2:
This is what I've been working for the past nine years //
baby, lift your chin, I know feels like we're light years //
apart but in a couple of days I'll be right there //
to hold you through the cold nights, lead you through the nightmares //
no more waking up crying in the middle of the night //
I'll be happy to see your face on the pillow next to mine //
feeling your wonderful scent as I'm kissing your face //
and you're giving me goose bumps when you whisper my name //
so we live and never regret, forgive but never forget //
I just want to treat you right and give you the respect //
that you need from a man, be the best I can be //
'cause when I feel you there resting on my chest, girl, I feel at home... //
Track Name: Living Free
Verse 1:
Good morning world - time to wake up //
to a brand new day, feeling great - yup! //
that's right, baby, show 'em what you're made of //
and I'm a do the same, put my feelings on the paper //
but before I transcend the limitations //
allow me to send an invitation //
to (all of) my enemies and friends who've been awaiting //
this moment, (I want to) thank you for your patience //
thank you for providing the energy //
that I need to survive in this industry //
forward with a smile 'cause I'm living free //
finally, now that I'm on a winning streak //
you better believe that I've paid my do's //
got caught (up) in the storm but I made it through //
then I came back in my favorite shoes //
now I'm a let 'em talk about it while I make my moves... (C'mon!!)//

This is where the journey starts //
keep on following your hearts //
maybe this is just a dream //
but it's my way of living free //
if this is where the story ends //
I have no regrets my friend //
maybe this is just a dream //
but it's my way of living free... //

Verse 2:
True story - You see, I went from the stoop to the stage //
stepped up, grabbed the mike and it blew 'em away //
[ From : ]
exceeded every expectation that they had //
prejudiced fools with their heads in the sand //
were forced to wake up to a new beginning //
of unchained melodies, moving rhythms //
and a star shining to fill the vacancy //
in the hearts of the people, it's plain to see //
that I've got my own plans and ambitions //
not sure what they are, but a man on a mission //
nontheless, always handling my business //
never going to quit... Now can I get a witness? //
nowadays I just lock and load //
and I'm a chase that bread 'til my pocket's full //
they told me everything I wanted was impossible //
but I just kept dreaming of rock'n'roll. Let's go!... //


I'ma do my thang thang - I'ma do my thang... //

Verse 3:
Just when you got sick at the thought of rap //
I came back with something sick and I brought it back //
in the days, took you back to the days of cooking rap //
stumble down a crooked path, forward without looking back //
please support an endangered species //
of hungry artists and play the CD //
take it all in, sit back, let it marinate //
beautiful fairytale told from the barricades //
beautiful fairytale told from the barricades... //
Track Name: Feel The Vibe (feat. Jonathan Ojeda)
Verse 1:
Hi there girl, how you doing? Now forget about your hardships //
for a minute, let us sit down at the bardisk //
I usually prefer working over parties //
but tonight I'm a rockstar, not an artist //
(so) don't pretend, baby, you know who to go to //
for that old school vibe, mixed up with that soulful //
funkyness, oh so fresh - it's Stonerude //
so cool, well, all right... Now let me show you //
how we can go from partying our asses off //
to eating burgers on the floor like David Hasselhoff //
before the night ends and if you're bringing the right friends //
the sky's the limit. You ready? Well, let's ride then... //

Chorus: (x2)
Feel the vibe, feel the vibe //
all my party people get down //
Feel the vibe, feel the vibe //
if you came here to have a good time... //

Verse 2:
they know that it's JaeWon //
rocking fresh shoes, step into the room with my shades on //
Say, who? You know the dude who will make songs //
with a chemical effect similar to an A-bomb //
Boom! As the night goes on, just let that song play //
see you sitting in the corner, homie, why the long face? //
I've been working all day too, so I'm sorry //
but that's a lame excuse when you came here to party //
I've got to admit it I'm easily inebriated //
on the dancefloor, feeling the heat when DJ's playing //
that hot shit. Well, I don't mean to keep you waiting //
so keep it shaking on the floor and I'll see you later... //

Chorus. (x2)

Verse 3:
All right people, that's the last call, so clear out the dancefloor //
everybody's stampeding out, shaking the asphalt //
now it's 3 o'clock and we're dancing on the rooftops //
to that 70's funk that's banging out the boombox //
doing everything from the running man to the moonwalk //
we rock on from Stockholm to New York //
can't waste time, I say life is too short //
to worry at all - let us all take our shoes off... //
Chorus. (x2)
Track Name: Bogus Bounce
Verse 1:
I heard... I, I, I heard...
the early bird is the one that gets the worm, I'm //
fresh out the nest, already taking it worldwide //
(you poor thang!) people compared you to Mr. Curbside //
and threw your demo out the window as soon as they heard mine //
those executives and A&R's want that hotness //
ain't got the key to success so they're calling on the locksmith //
JaeWon is a monster, kind of like the lochness //
used to fly with the luggage, but now I sit in the cockpit //
and I'm about to have some fun with it - run with it //
hun-gry like a beast. You want it? Then come get it //
Oh, he done did it again now, thinking he's all that //
you should either get with it or forget it and fall back... //

Bogus bounce, bogus bounce //
everybody's talking gangsta but they ain't really down //

Verse 2:
From Australia to Asia, Eurrrope to the US //
I step into the ring leaving competition toothless //
too fresh, others rappers feeling useless //
walking 'round the house all day in a robe like they're Hugh Hef //
I know you've heard I murder tracks like it's nuthin' bro //
now c'mon, let's put the funk back in dysfunctional // (Aoooow!!!)
I'm a keep going, keep moving like a rebel //
I'm a keep talking trash over groovy instrumentals //
I'm a hell of an eloquent, diligent fella //
with a lyrical sentiment, not necessarily intelligent //
killing the melody, feeling adrenaline filling me //
doing it for the hell of it, giving this business some elegance //
now I'm a take you back to the basics //
since 1999 I've been working the graveshift //
now watch me turn my biggest interest into a paycheck //
it's my first release and I just gave this industry a facelift... //

It's ok... Good times... //
It's ok... Some fun... //

It's ok to have a good time every now and then... //
It's ok to have a little fun from time to time... //
Hahaha... //
