  • Deltron 3030 - "Things You Can Do" (5.00)
    Lyrics:

    Chorus: Things You Can Do
    Some Can't Be Done (7X)

    Things you can do...

    (DEL): "3030 way past the millennium, check it out"

    (Verse 1)
    Yo, Deltron thunderforce,
    Ain't no other source of sunlight, two ton mic
    Leave you toungue-tied
    Runnin' 'em up with technology with no apology
    Shoutin' out to my colony with 3rd EYE Physiology
    Millennium past apocalypse is all I spit
    Make you swallow it,
    Your weak style, I'll abolish it
    With nuclear rockets they glued to your optics with sci-fi
    Unsettlin' man & mettle blends
    Underground chillin' with the mole man
    And his whole fam
    Inhibit bacterial growth, material growth
    Impenetrable, incontestable
    Indigestible intelligence
    NEVER let a computer tell me SHIT
    It's rapid innovation, penetrating
    Artificial life forms, who bite songs
    I'm a ??
    Then I flip the bio-techs
    Right into the wireless
    Your 3rd EYE is hit with psoriasis
    The mightiest Deltron Zero trovers and pursed the travesties
    Attempts your ear holes
    The area of distribution lifts the clueless
    My flow is like, liquid oxygen
    Rip it off and with specific impulse
    increase the thrust
    Grease the cuts
    Unleash a cluster of thoughts I muster
    I talk to toucher
    And rush a commercial communications
    Convert solar-energy, inter imagery
    In the minds eye, blind side the contagious
    Where radioactive isotopes to the ??
    Atomic mass they small as fragments
    I magnetize the avant lies
    My radiation shields reflects, projects the septagons
    Who take the truth and stretch it long?
    While I bless a song

    Next level incredible metal melding
    Flex ability and my engine is never failing"

    (chorus)

    (verse 2)
    All your rhyme histories combined
    Couldn't violate the prime optimus operative
    Use my hydrometer to see how warm you are
    Watch me form a star
    Hydrogen turned to helium when I shine
    Riding 'em revealing 'em leading 'em to the vaccume
    Interact with tunes in my digital sinital critical pivital with the mental
    shit on you
    Spit infinity hitting energies to dope for our planet
    Star spanning slamming hymmes with, mechanical limbs
    Scanning your limbs with cosmic rays
    You'll all get played, your brain's inferior
    I hit the lateral and posterior
    My science is eerier
    Ionic bonding for your moronic pondering, meet the R marines
    My micro machines
    Might, throw your team into paralysis
    They not talented,
    Just a malady
    Worry 'bout a salary, creative casualty
    Couldn't defrag my power density intensity
    Nonequivalence, 900 neutrons
    Crush you like croutons
    You plus ??
    Hiero's like??
    Inside a silo
    Turbulence tinfole, never simple
    Defies excepted methods development most unique
    Paralyse central nerous when you close to me
    Interstellar void fills with color, appears to bubble
    And split into four like amoeba
    And have it in planets with ??
    Coast like silver surfer
    Feel the purplus
    High velosity verbal atrocities
    Fire resistance, better hire assistance
    My pistons glisten ultra high performance
    Inside your private porters
    Where I fry your components

    Deltron 3030 is the 2000 debut album by hip hop supergroup Deltron 3030. It is a rap opera concept album set in a dystopian year 3030.

    Album information[edit]
    The album's story casts Del in the role of Deltron Zero, a disillusioned mech soldier and interplanetary computer prodigy rebelling against a 31st-century New World Order. In a world where evil oligarchs suppress both human rights and hip-hop, Del fights rap battles against a series of foes, becoming Galactic Rhyme Federation Champion. To celebrate, Del takes a trip back to Earth for a vacation, but is ambushed by his enemies and has his memory wiped, plunging the world back into darkness.
    Del tha Funkee Homosapien's lyrics veer from serious social commentary to humor to epic sci-fi battles, while producer Dan the Automator creates an eerie and dense atmosphere.
    The song "3030" was used as the theme song on the short lived CBS series Robbery Homicide Division. The song "Positive Contact" was featured in the video games Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX (2001), Tony Hawk's Underground (2003), and College Hoops 2K8 (2007).
    The song "Time Keeps On Slipping", featuring Damon Albarn, is said to have been the influence on the creation of the musical project Gorillaz. This claim however, is unfounded. Gorillaz began recording their first album in 1998, a year before Deltron 3030 was formed to record their own. The similarities of both albums are likely the result of Daniel Nakamura's production.
    On the single "Time Keeps On Slipping", it states the version of "Turbulence" is the remix by Mark Bell, despite the fact the album version and the version featured on the single are completely different. The version on the single could possibly be the original version, as it features scratching possibly by Kid Koala, which is missing from the Mark Bell remix on the album.[citation needed]
    The album was reissued July 1, 2008 with 3 bonus remixes.
