I remember climbing those stairs at 16
Came from LI with my crew and some big dreams
406 was a place we called HQ
Met 'round the world on the daily and they knew
Feeling like we lost our home
Now our days are either in the lab or on the road
Everything changed
They saw the heart like an x-ray
Used to sleep in the DJ booth if I had to open next day
A place where in stores felt like an oven
And if you didn't know the words to the song playin, you were nothin'
Was almost too nervous to walk in for my interview
Come on son you'll murder this, what's gotten into you?

Soul Khan:

So even though I was a latecomer, I had the same hunger
And still looked at those days with such a great wonder
At the days that we're eventually become brothers
Connected by the records and the way they changed others
I miss all the customers, the sidewalk hustlers
And chilling with the fellas at the deli that was under us
The second home feeling when I walked in the door
Shit, sometimes I even miss mopping the floor

Out my window, the seasons shift
Like the breeze blows the seeds adrift
Though you're gone now, I won't forget
All I learned from, the 406, the 406


You ever have to say goodbye to your dearest friend
Remembering the day he died wishing he was here again
And closed doors those floors learned to walk & listen
In 2000whatever you're burned cause more are missing
Stop supporting when it's too late and the draw's done
Treat it like the first day you ever met your born son
Not like they never warned us just couldn't tell a secret
But really what it comes to just didn't want to believe it
Story after story and record after record
Been boxed up locked what wasn't meant to have an ending
So what you can conclude this is what it's come too
Our children won't get to see and touch what we once knew
It still feels weird when I walk down 8th street/ they've peeled down walls now that walk feels empty
And don't say that you miss it if your presence was missing
I was there since its beginning and there when it finished

Audible Doctor:

I remember being back in Wisconsin checking the back of the wax like these are the cats that really made this shit
Fast forward to '04 when I'm out the door made my pilgrimage feeling sick about to start my first shift
Shout out to Monster for hooking it up
Amore joking that she can't hire me cuz my kick game's fucked
shout out to eclipse for telling me my music sucked
it made me work harder he's a bit part of why it stuck
I sat upon a perch and watched the New York scene
I attended all the shows as a V.I.P.
I spoke with the fans and artists bout our hopes and dreams
Never really thinking that this moment would leave
I met a lot of my idols and most the cats I work with
I've seen the sales decline first hand it made me sick
All of these things are reasons why I sound like this
So if you're a fan of my music thank the 406, the 406
