lyrics

COOLZEY

Gather round closely folks
What you’re about to see
Is just about enough to get you
Questioning reality
Minds blown - Obviously
Yes that’s what I’m talking about
Check out my rhetorical skills
I spin you round about
Until you can’t tell
Which way is which
Which is what will loosen
Up the time stitch
so i can slip in
Then you’re mine bitch
Lines that intersect is where
I find my opportunity to misdirect
Now pull a card out of this deck
Inspect it carefully
I want you to be satisfied
Show it to your friend
While I turn my back
Atta guy
Here take this Sharpie
and mark it up uniquely
Tear it half but please don’t show it to me
Now put in the pocket of your coat
And gimme a glass of water
I got something in my throat
Hold up a minute
Is this your card?
Is it?
What about your pocket
Take a look
There’s nothing in it!

CHORUS

You know I got tricks
To put on a show
With the sleight of hand
and a solid flow
In the place tonight
With imagery that’s tight
and a countenance that’s grand
Yes I’m a humble man
But still I got tricks
To engage your mind
With the sleight of hand
I think that you will find
That when you let go
The things that you will see
Will help you to believe the magic
That you have hidden just up your sleeve

SOCE THE ELEMENTAL WIZARD

It's raining outside, yet this uncovered painting is dry.
I'm the master of elements, and I say it's no lie.
I freeze enemies in their tracks. Their faces go cry
Icicles with blades like a knife to make them comply.
Have a seat. The lights went out? It's all in the plans.
I keep the entire stage brighter with my fireball hands.
My secrets are safe. I would never uncover the code.
You might not survive, but that's part of the fun of the show.
Relax. They always say in life, "Get your mind right."
It's the same people who claim lightning never strikes twice.
I'll move tectonic plates if it gets me a good review.
Feeling the earth quake for a second is super cool.
I keep my satchel packed with the neatest of tricks.
Like the great Keizer Soze, I don't even exist.
My hip hop instrumentals deliver a hype crowd.
Surprise! You're listening to one of my beats right now.

CHORUS

You know I got tricks
To put on a show
With the sleight of hand
and a solid flow
In the place tonight
With imagery that’s tight
and a countenance that’s grand
Yes I’m a humble man
But still I got tricks
To engage your mind
With the sleight of hand
I think that you will find
That when you let go
The things that you will see
Will help you to believe the magic
That you have hidden just up your sleeve

SCHAFFER THE DARKLORD

Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to be astounded
Mesmerized, mystified and all around confounded
Dumbfounded, I will make magic
Nothing's as it seems, including this fake accent

Wait, take a back step, I'll clear up all confusion
Call me Doug Henning 'cause I call it all illusion
Yeah, I can make a hanky vanish, I can make a ball appear
Or I break your freaking brain, but I'ma need a volunteer

Hop up here, inspect this box, ensure there's nothing funny at it
While you're at it, I'll produce a couple dozen bunny rabbits
From my hat, it's magic, man, it's madness, lie inside it, love
I lock it, saw it in half - TA-DA! - Look, it's a bunch of doves

Never tip gaffs to rubes or their sons or daughters
Even when shackled in tubes, inverted underwater
I open with the Indian rope trick, I’m so sick
Tell me that I’m dope, I’m like “no shit.”

CHORUS

You know I got tricks
To put on a show
With the sleight of hand
and a solid flow
In the place tonight
With imagery that’s tight
and a countenance that’s grand
Yes I’m a humble man
But still I got tricks
To engage your mind
With the sleight of hand
I think that you will find
That when you let go
The things that you will see
Will help you to believe the magic
That you have hidden just up your sleeve

about

Coolzey Los Angeles, California

Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt are the foundation. Growth tempered by alternative era rock influence. This along with a love for the juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world allow for a wide, unpredictable arsenal ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop. ... more
