Track Name: Weapons
Story told once, twice
modified once, twice
sweetened peppered salt spice
weakened, watered down,
and nice

tell the story biased
disinformation is a menace
propaganda's at it's finest
fully methodized madness

lying by omission
fool my intuition
pave the road to my perdition
self-consumed man on a mission

Am I even worth the mention
When the world needs reinvention
If I speak up I know
I can face detention

They'll convince you that you're pitchin
against the whole nation
if not they'll convince the whole nation
Streets raging they got planes & tanks for that
so many weapons that dreams of peace have fallen flat

Tanked economy, unneeded misery
21st century controlled by PMC
it's hard to take it to the streets
hide messages in the beats
i'm glad i'm not alone
to be more than the eye meets
but this ain't an elite
there's plenty of seats
I don't claim excellence
But i'll see that no one cheats
I want a life of peace
lest it means my life cease
I find absurdity
In gold, chrome, silk and fleece

never take the mountain pass
Only climb the peaks
May the first become last
but never show the other cheek
Fight he who lets none speak
Our future is NOT bleak
Let all be cleansed from the corruption of which they reek

Keep in mind a strong one, may become a strong few
apply reasoning and a few can become a throng too
Powers that be spit words that are untrue
Surround themselves with tons of uniformed goons

Any who resist they will try to run through
Creating martyrs and legends that we can sing a song to
Give away counterfeit dreams to any willing young fool
Greed's effects are chlorinating the gene pool

Chlorinating your genes
Indoctrinating your kids
reducing your means
turning you into machines

No medals and heroes, but fear is a go
All morals out the window, the wars are just a show
down the abyss in that sense
justice defined in its absence
i've been mad since
Those squares took over
Politics a dozer
that's no brainer
scientists are fodder for
Corporate endeavors
All objectives in order
Strive to blur the border
Man and mangy dog,
they own the water
Track Name: Le peuple des insincères
Le peuple des insincères
Vit dans l’abstinence
Du goût, de l’éloquence
Des espoirs des rêves amiraux

En quête d’adversaires
Assure sa soutenance
Et nourrit une colère
Qui nous ramène tous à zéro

Ni plus ni moins qu’habile
Dans l’art de surprendre
Une jouvence fébrile
Esquive ce mal de vivre mondain

Et sert aux insincères
Certes turbulence
Mais aussi l’essentiel they need
To tear the world apart

It’s time to feel the filth
To tear it all apart
To tear it all to pieces
And shout it out loud

It’s time to set them free
To break it all apart
To tear it all to pieces
And turn it upside down

Le téléphone sonne et chigne
On s’indigne
Ceci est-il signe d’un regain

Les insincères ont-ils renoncé à rendre l’âme
Ou embrassent-ils en vain leur nature de requins
Track Name: The Baddest Cats
trust alotta people but youre being naive though
thinking modern man can be trusted, no
turn your back on one
and watch your dreams blow

to pieces
cause in every single mind evil reaches
the sign, shaped like an S
and it burns even the best

im singed I confess
but ill never join the rest
my true pot of gold
is remaining honest
id rather put out with
rhymes and finesse

meanwhile, most people regress
without even realizing that theyre loving less
and never wisen or find happiness
their eyes just widen when they finally meet with death

see her coming up, black boots black dress, snatching hearts right out of their chests
she's fashionably ruling, rationally fooling,
manages to put the baddest cats to rest

takes alotta right to right a wrong
but you better
if your conscience can't keep you in line
then you better
Watch yourself
takes alotta right to right a wrong
you better check the weather
for shit storms
if you think yourself a winner
Watch yourself

you think youre gold
got it all planned out
but youre first to stumble around
when shit dont pan out

can't improvise you just bail out
don't worry man people like we got you smelled out

boy who cry wolf this the last time you cry out
keep fronting lies, you're a splinter
you'll get pried out

Find out
lie-spinner your web
get washed out
What now
Cover's blown
now watch the fallout

takes alotta right to right a wrong
but you better
if your conscience can't keep you in line
then you better
Watch yourself
takes alotta right to right a wrong
you better check the weather
for shit storms
if you think yourself a winner
Watch yourself

takes alotta right to right a wrong
but you better
if your conscience can't keep you in line
then you better
Watch yourself
takes alotta right to right a wrong
alot to write a song
Or to get up and get along
Watch yourself
If you take alotta time and time it wrong
What you prize is gone
And then you're left alone
then watch yourself
Take your time but go and right your wrongs
Get up and get along
Get up and get it right c'mon
