Lyrics

Eighty:
my first time online: 1995
my neighbor's new computer, we took it for a ride

addicted from the start and it wasn't ending soon
in jpeg rooms seeing women in the nude

but that's not my interest, time i could invest
deltrees and trojans - computers i could infect

(hold on, i'm getting ahead of myself) take a step back
started making fan sites of artists that could rap

pasted some code in an im to start up
aol choked, it was frozen on the markup

came across proggies and tools made by others
kicking people offline, the scene called them punters

had the best strings that would crash and hold the throne
so i couldn't give them out, had to code it on my own

vb3 download and feeling out of place
started out clueless, a genozide bas

sprinting for the lead, i couldn't stay behind
met CaFFeiNe learned the windows api

writing bigger apps growing day by day with it
subclass, trespass, evade rate limits

i'm a warez group mercenary, coding was my pitch
servers, mass mailers, anything for phish

tosers, scrollers, ascii art, journals
for masters and subs, overheads, internals

multithreaded brute force SecurID tokens
german, canadian, it's code that was spoken

a pinpoint in time, most will never know
i coded with the very best from all around the globe

bounced from private rooms, finding all the spots
bypassing blocks hide from CATWatch and TOS

wondered if accounts would even live until the morning
'cause all of this could terminate with on screen warnings

YTCracker:
this, digital gangster, he made a splash
in a couple private rooms in '98 if my math

is correct and got immediate respect in my past
with the phreakin', and the hackin', and the spammin' for cash

just ask astro, i was the fidel castro
dictator yeah'in while i'm scrolling a macro

page on 80p
free hosts for all the hackers and the ao-g's

this, digital gangster, he made a splash
page on the internet in any subclass

no sendkeys, so the proggies are fast
all the tosers, and the mailers, and the phishes were mass

this, digital gangster, he made a splash
intro art to his proggies and past

concert, to the kiddies and dash
then i spit some raps about it and i'm famous for that

Eighty:
now, let's continue that the intro's begun
did i mention? i was running windows 3.1

my 486dx was so potent
coupled with a 2400 baud modem

back to the task, this culture this class
these hackers, these teenagers growing up fast

with password stealers reversing was the issue
switch out the email, flip, and redistribute

i had LeGiON, HaVoK, rolling with a force
decompiled Fate and i marveled at the source

coldice, dive, int, and all the vb's
there was server with an 's', and cerver with a 'c'

i was phishing with aim, switching up the game
an app that would interface with aol and aim

clearing out the rooms eating customers alive
these chat sound strings had me spinning up your drives

for 5-minute code with the con\con stunts
one night run, over 20, 000 punts

spam became my thing, growing interest in my funds
checks from aff - keep 'em coming every month

regrets never once, always used caution
aol was all i had, there was no other option

vb3 got a bit stale and so we left
threw away my vbx, made an ocx

my bas 32-bit, the code was a rarity
custom controls, added gui transparency

thinking of protocols and keywords we broke
we had fdo scripts and MasterAOL invokes

getting out the scene, mailing, and serving
getting into other things like Rainman and Merlin

insideaol and then observers crew
lcases, certs, i remember all of you
