Track Name: Grime
how many takes how many takes does it take
to get to the center of a good rhyme
how many americans can you see that are blind
don't know what i'm talking about take a look around
maybe you're one of them
you'll listen to my sound say im a sean daley
or eminem wanna be
go ahead
everyone is entitled to their own opinion
just because you say something is
doesn't mean it isn't
just because you i something isn't doesn't
mean is it
and just because you have an opinion
doesn't meat i want to hear it

so save it shove it or shut it
i don't give a shit whether you hate this or you love it
i could give a fuckless about what you call success
you think i do this for your amusement
you must be clueless
wait i know, why don't i dye my hair blond
repeat the chorus twenty times in the same song
do dance routines in outfits that gleam
half naked, for your entertainment
sing about played out topics like love, rollin on dubs,
bottles full of bubs in da club
doing lotsa drugs
and my lumps my lovely lady lumps
yeah right i rather make out with a knife
stab my eyes until im blind and then use it to end my life
so before you yap your trap you better think twice
or the outcome of this situation wont be nice

please allow me to clarify i'm not a singer or an emcee
not an artist, im not the illest or the smartest
i don't want to top your charts
or capture your fucking filthy hearts
i don't give a shit if you think i'm the sickest or i make you sick
if i make your millions or die in a puddle of piss
you worship false gods and diamonds
saturated with violence
what kind of world it this?
i think there are more important issues to be analyzing
than the marriage of brad pitt and anglelina jolie
or who brittany or lindsey are now fucking
i mean is it just me
how can an entire society lose it's grip on insanity
how could we have acquired such a cultivation of greed
such a ruthless thirst for money
to buy BULLSHIT we don't need

i don't understand people priorities

so save it shove it or shut it
i don't give a shit whether you hate this or you love it
i could give a fuckless about what you call success
you think i do this for your amusement
you're abusive and fucking clueless
who in the world invented private property
to begin with
you're a guest on this planet
here for a short while
yet we consume and compile
more compost heap
in twenty minutes than they did for whole centuries
i don't understand why we keep repeating history
it's a mystery and i'm just a messenger
i'm not trying to make a living off my hobby
i'm not trying to win a grammy
i'm trying to build an army that uses its brains instead of bombs
and all i got are these songs
all i got are these songs
all i got are these songs
all i got are these songs
Track Name: Bad Chemicals
the lunatic is in my head
and he's saying im better off dead
got a million missions
but i think i'll stay in bed
let me guess it's one of those days
too much stress nothings going your way
and even though you know
it could be worse
you let them take control
then crave a herse
those bad chemicals
in your brain
those ugly feelings you cant contain
when all you can do is complain
and they say you're the one to blame
but they don't know
about those bad chemicals
in your brain
no they don't know
what it feels like to wanna be maimed

just when you think you got your shit together
just when you think you're oh so clever
just when you think you're done with your endeavors
something snaps you wish your head was severed
just when you think you got your shit together

theres a traffic jam and you're late for work
you spilled coffee on your favorite shirt
your first world problems are so fucked im sure
no one knows no one knows
the troubles you endure
you stubbed your toe
you've got bad mojo
oh no your favorite show got cancelled
you've had it up to here
and you're ready to blow
no one knows
no one knows

just when you think you got your shit together
just when you think you're oh so clever
just when you think you're done with your endeavors
something snaps you wish your head was severed
just when you think you got your shit together
something snaps
you wish your head was severed
you wish you could remember
what it feels like to be happy
don't you wonder
what spell you're under
Track Name: Free For All
When life is dull
don't you fret
take two of these
and you'll forget
you'll be pleased
place your bets
on your knees
no regret
sunrise, sunset
confess, repent
get spent, get bent
till your hearts content
ready set
you haven't seen nothing yet

big & small
short or tall
it's a wall to wall
free for all
no need for rules no need for laws
feel free to brawl
don't you stall come one come all
drown yourself in alcohol
after all
it's a free for all

whats that you say
it's of no concern
come this way
how absurd
haven't you heard
its a free for all
act out, repress
dress to impress
eat more, eat less
carefree, careless
you bet
you haven't seen anything yet

big & small
short or tall
it's a wall to wall
free for all
don't you stall
come one come all
after all
it's a free for all
Track Name: Breathing Down My Neck
im not gonna rap fast
i want you to understand what im saying
in fact i'm going to go real slow
you know so you can follow

bred to be slaves
everyday is engraved
every step you take
on the roads they paved
upon the land they stole
back in the day
everything you touch and taste is fake
i feel displaced
much to my dismay

i've developed a hyper sensitivity to everything
i hear and see too much anxiety
i want to blast off into another fucking galaxy
we're not humans
a genetic mutation
full of excuses
it's pointless its useless

when you sleep at night
if you feel safe
then they've fooled you twice
into feeling sane
cos' this shit aint right
we live in a system
in which you are not truly free
every system glitches eventually

it's only a matter of time
fuck wall street occupy your god damn mind
you've got no right
to be enraged
when you're the one that pays to be in this cage
you like to be punished and misbehave
you enjoy these chains
its the only way i can explain
humans love misery
what else could it possibly be
why else would we allow such ridiculously
it's a puzzle to me
and everyday i lose another fucking piece

i gotta get out get out get out get out
i'm in the belly of the beast
get out get out get out get out
you're in the belly of the beast
get out get out get out get out
we're in the belly of the beast
we're in the belly of the beast
we're in the belly of the beast

your fears are genetically amplified
soon your tears will be genetically modified
your ass is genetically sodomized
where your life goes
where does your life go
Track Name: Flash Forward
the knowledge you seek is inside you
it's like you're chasing your tail when its right behind you
dragging yourself through the mud like tyler durden would do
acting like you've got a fucking clue
unaware the only one you're hurting is you
ooh child if you only knew and
thats what i would tell my younger self
if i could go back and replay
the cards that were dealt
but im here now and i really shouldn't dwell
oh well

still clueless roaming the streets aimless
like a zombie i rage shameless
still clueless roaming the streets aimless
like a zombie i rage shameless
so shameleeeess

now i'm almost thirty
and i almost know how to act
when drinking i cut back on jim and jack
now that im older
hang overs really kick my ass
and being sober doesn't seem so wack
priorities change its not so fast track
in fact everything more relaxed
who knew it's harder to fuck up
when you think through what you do
just think about that
just think about that

still clueless roaming the streets aimless
like a zombie i rage shameless
so shameless
still clueless roaming the streets aimless
like a zombie i rage shameless
so shameless
still clueless roaming the streets aimless
like zombies we rage shameleeeeeeess
Track Name: Consequences
It was a regular day
just like another day
she got up
went about her business
just like yesterday

but little did she know
the consequences she faced
would never let go

she drank
she drank with friends
she drank until she couldn't see straight
they laughed
they had a blast
it was the best time of their lives

but little did they know
it'd be the last time
they'd have the best time of their lives

cos sometimes
the shit you decide
takes other peoples lives

she was driving
they were laughing
she took the red light
BOOM
big-fucking-bada boom
she took the red light

little did they know
it'd be the last time
they'd have the best time of their lives

when she got up this morning
i doubt she knew
she'd take out her whole crew
and a family of three
with a baby to be
what a tragedy

little did they know
it'd be the last time
they'd have the best time of their lives
but she survived
yes she stayed alive
caught in a landslide
caught in a landslide

now she sits
she just sits in a jail cell
just thinking about that last time
she had the best time of her life

so the next time you want to drink and drive
remember its not just your life on the line
everything you do effects everyone around you
Track Name: Four Notes (Ripped From The Appendix)
this is for all the houses foreclosed
for all the families kicked out of their homes
this is for the fortune the less fortunate will never know
for every coke sold cos waters unaffordable
for the working class who everyday bust their ass
so the wealthy can get more cash
you don't have to be good at math
to see the sum of this equation
doesn't add up
it doesn't add up

this is for every person born
a human being and made a machine
for people of power for the elite
for your doomed plutocracy
this is for every mistaken war lord
uh uh

this is for peace not war
this is for peace not war
this is for peace not war

for no one suffering anymore
cos life's for loving
cos life's for loving

why all the
why all the
why all the hate
why all the
why all the
why all the hate
why all the
why all the
why all the hate

cos sticks and stones
can break your bones
but who knew words can kill you
and its a shame when some bully is to blame

cos sticks and stones
can break your bones
but who knew words can kill you
and its a shame when some bully is to blame


life is for loving
life is for loving
this is for peace not war
for no one suffering anymore
life is for loving
why all the hate
life is for loving
this is for peace not war
for no one suffering anymore
Track Name: Durante La Siesta Del Gallo
doesn't matter the race
doesn't matter the sexuality
at the end of the day
we're human
so why the inhumanity
i dream of a world in perfect harmony
i know its a possibility

it really sickens me
how hateful humans can be
why anyone would choose hate over love
is beyond me
why cant we leave the savagery
with our ancestry
learn from their mistakes
how many more centuries
must it take
no matter how hopeless it seems
i'll never lose faith
never lose faith

cos we will rise up in harmony
we will reclaim victory
one day humans will regain their humanity
humanity

repeat after me
violence is not a necessity
money can not buy everything
we're all leaves falling from the same tree
at war with ourselves since the beginning
i guess you really are your own worst enemy

oh humanity
you really are your own worst enemy
you really are your own worst enemy
you really are your own worst enemy
you really are your own worst enemy
oh humanity
why cant you see the irony
in being your own worst enemy
Track Name: Natural Disaster
what will you do
when the trees are truly few
what will you do
will we just find another land to ravage through
what will you do
what will you do
will we build city on top of cities
till we reach the moon
what will we do
what will we doooooo

no time to ask questions or wonder why
gotta keep it on the fly
gotta speed through it until all my time has passed me by
no time to ask questions or wonder why
gotta keep it on the fly
gotta speed through it until all my time has passed me by
no time to ask questions or wonder why
gotta keep it on the fly
gotta speed through it until all my time can pass me by

goodbye, i could cry and rhyme and spit that shit all day
but nothings ever going to change if we the people don't find a way
don't rely on your government or what they say don't wait for judgement day
i find it bizarre everyones so busy with their credit cards to charge while others starve

peace isn't hard to find its waiting inside
so realize you're the key to save humanity
and maybe we'll have a chance at peace
please stop waiting
for someone else to save us
lets save ourselves
don't allow them to enslave us
lets break free from this war based economy
that raised us

others living off of just rice
luxury sedans must be nice
when the sun melts all the ice
will it help

others living off of just rice
luxury sedans must be nice
when the sun melts all the ice
will it help

others living off of just rice
luxury sedans must be nice
when the sun melts all the ice
it'll never help escape

THE RISING TIDES

they will rise
higher than any sky scrapeeer
that we can ever build
yes they will
rise and destroy
rise and destroy
just like we do
if you don't take care of nature
do you expect her to take care of you
Track Name: Melancholy's Dramas
did you know with drones
now we can fight these wars
from the comfort of our own home

they target teens make it like a video game
only the killing is not fake
soldiers don't even have to be
on site to take out the enemy
they can go home to their family every night
isn't that something
isn't that something

all this protection isn't from enemies
in other countries i guarantee
its from us for when we finally bring the uprising
for when we finally
bring the uprising
bring the uprising

cos some of us just don't learn
until we get burned
until we've sealed our fate
until its too late

some of us just don't learn
until we get burned
until its too late
until we've sealed our fate


but it doesn't have to be that way and i don't care if this sounds lame
just open your eyes we're living a lie they've rendered us blind
and i know it seems like the end is near all the time
and bps greed and stupidity has ruined the sea
and i know it seems like we're always on the brink
of nuclear tragedy but in times like these
in times like these
just open your eyes come together and realize
we're the own creators of our demise
just open your eyes
open your eyes
