about

This album never came together as I intended. I started working on it back in 2011, while I was still living in the States, and tried to finish it while I was here in Thailand. But it wasn't cohesive, because I was in two different frames of mind, and it's obvious when you listen to the tracks on the "album." This ended up being more a collection of songs than a real album, so I decided to just put it out as The Lost Files (my version of a Lost Tapes album). This would technically be my fourth album, between "...of Life" and "Mystical Psychosis." Also, this is the last album that I made my own beats.

Hopudoshi Columbus, Ohio

Hopudoshi, Hopanova, and Hop-Leo all represent different sides of my personality. Sometimes they are in harmony and sometimes they are in conflict. The differences between them are the reason for some of my ambivalent feelings towards certain issues.

VERSE 1: I’m back from the future, almost ran out of gas there // DeLorean was flying real fast there // came to find that there isn’t any trash there // no distinction between the rich and the mass there // no classes to clash over cash // capitalism is a thing of the past // Marx knew that it just couldn’t last // it’s broken now like an arm in a cast // and I stared, amazed at the people // living in peace, free and equal // now I’m back in the hereafter’s prequel // came to make sure that we have a good sequel // and I’m lethal with words and rhymes // here to kill bills (Bills) // I don’t mean the Bride’s // I’m talking about Senate Bill 5 // and others like it, we’ll bring their demise // proletariats stand and rise // I was sent to take the wool from your eyes // give you truth to replace the lies // working class heroes, husbands, wives // join the fight // unify unite // we’ll Occupy Wall Street day and night // thought they had us beaten but not quite // Revolutionary Doves // Love is might // BRIDGE: we won’t be beat // no // we won’t except defeat // no // we can’t be beat // no // we won’t except defeat // no // CHORUS 1: women and blacks // and the poor, middle class // and the gays and the straights // and the able and the lame // Christians and Jews // Muslim, Buddhists, Hindus // all of the above // Revolutionary Doves! // CHORUS 2: 99 unified // oh what a sight // left with no other options, gotta rise and fight (repeat) // SPOKEN: it’s time // the revolution is here // united we can conquer any foe // let’s go // let’s go // BRIDGE // VERSE 2: now I’m not telling you how to think // just to think // for yourselves and break the links // of the chains on your brain // when you free your mind you’ll see we’re all the same // and we were lulled to sleep // by the American Dream, counting sheep // while the bourgeoisie fed its gluttony // exploiting you and me // and I awoke to see the nightmare known as Reality // won’t be a casualty // of the one percent’s fallacies // cause we’re the other 99 // find the strength to unify // and through this cause we will conquer our divides // fortify our ties // stand firm, don’t fall for lies // recognize // that CEOs are slave masters in disguise // join the fight // unify unite // we’ll Occupy High Street day and night // thought they had us beaten but not quite // Revolutionary Doves // Love is might // BRIDGE // CHORUS 1 // CHORUS 2 // SPOKEN: if you’re one of the 99% // sing with me now // let me hear you // CHORUS 2

Track Name: Ode to Emptiness (Interlude)
The emptiness I didn’t know
Existed there since I was young;
My hollow soul produced echo
Till soft words spoken from Your tongue.

They fill my world with joy and hope
Despite the troubles all around.
How did I live or even cope
Before I heard that lovely sound?

But this I’ve learned: there is a price!
With bliss comes both pain and sorrow.
Today my home is paradise,
Though could be destroyed tomorrow.

I’m so high now, immersed in Love
And basking in the Light of day.
No more the heavens up above.
That night shan’t come, is what I pray.

Though once only empty, now should I fall
I would cease to be, or exist at all
Track Name: I. N.ever F.ind P.erfection
CHORUS: when I sleep // I fly high above the trees // in my Dreams // then I Wake // I come crashing down // back to the Ground // at times it’s hard to cope // ohh // I’m still hopeful // BRIDGE: never do I find it: // Perfection // are you there somewhere? // never do I find it: // Perfection // never do I find it: // Perfection // are you anywhere // never do I find it: // Perfection // VERSE 1: yo // I gotta be the only dude on the planet // who prefers Nightmares, here try to understand it // good Dreams are like a carrot on a string // mocking me each night like a parrot when he sings // it seems my goals are just outta reach // Reality must have a good keeper on its team // and my eternal opponent is disappointment // wishing at the moment they made lost hope ointment // anything to mend these shattered Dreams // sooth my miseries // think you’re getting what I mean // at least after Waking from a Nightmare // Life seems good when you contrast and compare // used to be like young Alice chasing down hares // eyes so wide with her head in the atmosphere // now I’m back on Earth // crashed in the dirt // won’t be the last or first // that this Reality hurts // so I close my eyes // lay me down to Sleep // pray to the Skies // I have terrible Dreams // BRIDGE // VERSE 2: put my hand in my pocket // felt a hole where my Dreams were // clutched her locket // hoped my Soul would redeem her // but since I never find Perfection // here’s a lesson // in Conception and Deception // when I cleansed my Perception // she came to me like a Fantasy // deep and intelligent, the opposite of vanity // she had to be the girl of my Dreams // but I learned the hard way things are not what they seem // first couple of months // things are looking up // it’s like Heaven’s open 24/7 // I develop // a sense of worship // she’s on a pedestal, while I’m looking like a fool // it was a stormy Night in January // walked in on her and my best friend Barry // all I could do is stand there and stare // wishing I was Sleep but it’s a Waking Nightmare // BRIDGE // CHORUS // BRIDGE // VERSE 3: still Lost // don’t know if I’ll ever be Found // negative thoughts // won’t let them hold me down // but when it starts // I begin to hear the Sound // and then my Heart // it seeps in the Darkness bound // demons within me // claiming to be friendly // where will they send me // not to Heaven’s entry // I’ve Dreamed a Dream but now it’s gone from me // the seeking of Perfection seems to be my Enemy // …Time heals all wounds though // on the Darkest Night I’ll be praying to the Moon yo // the Goddess inside us // Sparks us like lighters // burn Brightest // we’ll be Darkness fighters // and when I finally Wake from the Dream of Reality // please don’t consider me a casualty // find Peace, sailing on that Light Beam // but for now I’ll continue to Dream // BRIDGE 2x

The victory is easy. We have the numbers. It’s simply a matter of standing together as one. The difficulty lies in what to do after that victory. All I know is: Equality and Mercy for all. // CHORUS
