DamNation Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level
1. Bloast (2:44)
I see the world through the bent
Plastic of my helmet each day
That explains why I see everything
In such a warped way
Oh say can you fly?
By the dawn's early light
Or the cold moonshine?
Pray that you don't die
If you bloast you'll be toast
If you let your focus coast
I've sharpened up those skills but
Still I gotta count on some luck
Eyes in back of my head
Screaming, in a full tuck
Oh say can you fly?
With a twist of the wrist
Punching forward like a fist
Pray that you don't die
If you bloast you'll be toast
If you let your focus coast
It's urban warfare of a
Multi vehicular degree
That's the price you gotta pay to
Feel like you're free
Oh say can you fly?
As you dice with the mice
In the race of your lives
Pray that you don't die
If you bloast you'll be toast
If you let your focus coast
solo-Ed
Bloast past the problematic situations
Found on your way
Click down two gears and it's C-Ya
Have a nice day
Pray that you don't die
If you bloast you'll be toast
If you let your focus coast
2. Out the Window (3:48)
Going into transition
Upheaval by the ton is going on
Part of life's composition
I'm scared, I'm psyched
I'm bound for abandon
Turn the corners of life
Dive headfirst just to find
Reasonable thought flies
Out The Window
Yeah, there's no easy answers
To dealing with a major change in life
But some solutions
Reveal themselves
Across the course of time
We all go through it
Sooner or later matters not
But constant calm is
Sure to end at some point, it's our lot
Turn the corners of life
Dive headfirst just to find
Reasonable thought flies
Out The Window
solo-Ed
Wish you knew the future?
The good, the bad, the ugly
Do you dare?
Despite what you think
You never could properly prepare
Cause once it gets here
Shock takes hold and spins you like a top
You cannot see straight
Until your whirling world decides to stop
Turn the corners of life
Dive headfirst just to find
Reasonable thought flies
Out The Window
3. DamNation (3:16)
They're gonna win most popular forever
Vote or award does it even matter?
The politician or actress
Such a mess
Who is who?
Cause I can't tell the difference
So what's the poor boy to do?
Except be sick of you
In total obfuscation, this damn nation
Starstruck, stripped of our stripes
In total obfuscation, this damn nation
Dumbstruck guttersnipes
The camera loves their every grin
Such a sin
Beat the drums till
The whole country wakes up
That'd be a wonderous, thunderous day
Dream away
We're enraptured
Captured by the linelight
So what's the poor boy to do?
Except be sick of you
In total obfuscation, this damn nation
Starstruck, stripped of our stripes
In total obfuscation, this damn nation
Dumbstruck guttersnipes
solo-Ed
They get away with murdering
In vain I sing
With stupid smiles
We'll grant THEM all a pardon
So what's the poor boy to do?
Except be sick of you
In total obfuscation, this damn nation
Starstruck, stripped of our stripes
In total obfuscation, this damn nation
Dumbstruck guttersnipes
4. Absorbed (3:54)
We're all in this fight together
So small are the minds
That try to keep us far apart
Still individuals
Divided we shall fall
Not out to destroy uniqueness
Of race or religion
Or your own completeness
Common denominators
Multi racial and multi cultural
It's gone on for too long
Racism's sacred song
Absorbed, part of the sum
And sum of the parts
Beats the sum of none
We tolerate it
They cash the checks
But the day that we get together
They fear from one to the next
solo-Ed
Oh God, shine a revelation
Grant us a unified civilization
I just wish that all of us could
Wake up to the lies we just accept
As truths each day
It's gone on for too long
Racism's sacred song
Absorbed, part of the sum
And sum of the parts
Beats the sum of none
5. Force Quit (3:20)
You'll get over it
That's bullshit
Seen it for myself
It wears you down and won't quit
Forging straight ahead
Stopped dead
Like a deer caught in the headlights
Enough said
Shift command
Escape the program, restore
Functionality
Recover once more
Watched it turn a man
By his own hand
Into someone I can
Barely understand
Zapped his will to be
Lost his partner, now he's half
Of what he used to be
Confront the things unimagined
And prepare, but it's impossible
I just hope you can
Land on your feet
When death come calling
On the ones you love
He's gotta fill the void
Paranoid
To live alone
A fate he surely cannot avoid
Time is running out
Without a doubt
Wish I knew a way to figure it all out
Shift command
Escape the program, restore
Functionality, recover once more
6. Stressfest (3:32)
Sometimes the conflict's enough to break us
Make us all throw the towel in
But at the end of the day it empowers
And shows the strength within
Low in this labor of love lurks heartache
Despite the best laid plans
It'd end up being a useless mistake
To turn our backs on this band
Stressfest, heading in headlong
I'm right, you're wrong
But still we get along
Rest stop, everybody out
The bouts, the doubts
We just can't live without
In the stressfest
Yeah, I could find better thing to do with
Such short spare time
But there's a ghost and he'd
Hang there haunting
He'd wear me down over time
But in the pit of my very being
To old ways I'd revert
Because the beauty is in the seeing
The big picture's worth
Stressfest, heading in headlong
I'm right, headstrong
But still we get along
Stressfest, heading in headlong
I'm right, you're wrong
But still we get along
Rest stop, everybody out
The bouts, the doubts
We just can't live without
7. Biocaust (2:42)
Twelve years ago in 2023
Overpopulation, Warring nations
Devastation brought upon ourselves
Chemically
Total human extinction-Infectious cloud of doom
Nullification of creation
This is no hallucination
Earth: Android's heirloom
The Biocaust: Humanity's lost
Into the damned inferno we are all tossed
Android sentience-Computing logically
Clone the DNA before decay
Does take away
The chance to save mankind
Some disagree
A.I. in conflict, Robo-debate ensues
Why reanimate that which creates
Yet decimates itself with hate?
It can't deserve to rule
The Biocaust: Humanity's lost
Into the damned inferno we are all tossed
The Biocaust: Humanity's loss
Into the damned inferno-Nailed to our cross
Covert resurrection experiments ensue
Giving man a helping hand
A risky plan full of demands
Evade the scans and see it through
From a chain into humans
One of each gender turns
Now to educate, repopulate
And illustrate the deadly fate
And hope the new breed learns
The Biocaust: Humanity's lost
Into the damned inferno we are all tossed
The Biocaust: Humanity's loss
Given a second chance
Was it worth the cost?
8. This I Know (4:05)
All that I can say is, "Just find a way to
Grasp the rungs and climb on board"
The train is pulling out and
There is no doubt that
Waiting you cannot afford
This I know
That yesterday the future seemed far away
But now it's my face, in the flesh today
Take a look around you
Don't it astound you?
Short term thinking minds galore
Sure ya gotta earn it
Before you burn it
But work a dead end job what for?
This I know
Cause I was on that treadmill and man it sucks
A chase after my tail in the guise of bucks
Grind away, every day like a slave
Same old same, work your way to the grave
It's a miracle that you can even
Save it for a bright day
They all rain you say
Try to objectively
The cycle just continues
Have, have not issues
Fuel negativity
This I know
A sink or swim solution I call my job
It keeps me on my toes, not a worthless slob
Grind away, every day like a slave
Same old same, work your way to the grave
And besides it's so much fun to complain
Working straight commission
I'm a mission
Never any guarantees
Scratch out an existence, rugged resistance
To mindless mass mentalities
This I know
9. Momentary Clarity (2:45)
He's fooled himself for now
Momentary clarity clown
I'm the one
Who went and
Got his life on track
Chosen one
Time to kick back
And take it easy
One step up, two back down
Momentary clarity clown
I'm the one
The fool who hides
From his own self
Overrun by the fear of
Looking in the mirror
He's deaf to sensible sound
Momentary clarity clown
For a second he knows
That he has to let it go
Logic dictates the lows
That he's soon certain to know
I'm the one
Who went and
Got his life derailed
Chosen one
For a self medicating lifestyle
I've worn that jester's crown
Momentary clarity clown
10. California Song (4:38)
The sunshine has a special glow
In California
One you have to see to truly know
In California
There's transplant from across the fruited plain
Soul searchers, They alone know their way
They're gonna race around and chase 'em down
The dreams they've always had
Without a boast they'd raise a toast
To all the "friends" who thought them mad
It's gonna reach out and pull you in
Take you places you've not been
So if you head out, just take along
This California Song
You gotta concentrate and strangulate
Outside forces' goal
A change of pace, a change of face
Start playing your own role
It's gonna reach out and pull you in
Take you places you've not been
So if you head out, just take along
This California Song
To each his own is how it's gotta be
Through your own eyes
Is the only way to see
It's gonna reach out and pull you in
Take you places you've not been
So if you head out, just take along
This California Song
It's not that you can't build a future
Where you already live
But when you move away, I gotta say
It gives you perspective
It's gonna reach out and pull you in
Take you places you've not been
So if you head out, just take along
Your California Song
11. Stop and Go (4:23)
Well I've been up, I've been down
Treading water I'm now found
Keeping my head just above
The antithesis of love
Yes, I've been lost now I find
It's a struggle to be kind
We would without what lies within
Twist and break
At the whim of the wind
And we're not getting any younger
That's why I stop, gotta go
Hit the road, I'm out the door
Cause life's just wasting away
Chasing time day after day
So live it up while it lasts
Hurry up it's moving fast
Should really get hip to this
Sometimes ignorance
Is light years from bliss
Life is stop and go
Traffic, stop and go
Life is stop and go
The more I learn the less
I know how to stop
Ride the brake right to the top
It's all about patience
And of thinking first for once
Still some finagle their way
How they do it I can't say
Against all odds they prevail
Should be capsizing
But they're setting sail
12. Bad Vibrations (4:21)
They're everywhere
Do beware
Your dreamlike state
Soon crumbles
Into nightmare
To Bad Vibrations
You've got to tune in
And keep a safe distance
Or fall in
The signs are there to see but
Most choose see what they want
All those Bad Vibrations
They're seeking you out
They're destined to learn
Your whereabouts
We blind ourselves
With our desires
Can't tell the trustworthy
From liars
And wander down
The path to ruin
Can only blame yourself
You fool
So keep an ear
Tight to the ground
They proliferate all around
Invite them in
They'll drag you down
So know their face
And turn around
The Bad Vibrations
Should clue you in
To the potential problems
Lying within
