1. Inner Vision (1:54)
An inner vision

Emancipate my soul
Through knowledge
A truth of one and all
The source of our vision
Can viscerate the lies that bind us
A mental prison
Manipulation

Emancipate my soul
A world on fire
Desire
We can't control the flame
Confusion
Illusion
We're trading on our hearts and souls
God help us all
As we watch it fucking fall

Inner vision is where I did see
The horrors of the world
They are meant to be
Inner vision is where I did find
The answers to our problems
Reside in the mind

The answers to our problems
Reside in our minds

Knowing yourself is
The way to break free

Go !

This world's on fire
Desire
Yeah we're the ones to blame
Our vison
The solace
That viscerates
The lies

Pushing and shoving
I'm tested again

Forever knowing that
We're in the end
2. That Crazy White Boy Shit (2:05)
Always grooved on that crazy white boy shit
Looking for who played it best
Got that cassette from a bud named Foil Shitz
That's when I learned how fucking crucial it could get

Earl brought the hectic chaos
Darryl the solid tone
The buzzsaw came from Dr. Know
HR untouchable

They wrote the book on that crazy white boy shit
No one could even come close
Then on one summer night at the Rock Hotel
We all prepared for crazy white boys to explode

Earl brought the rapid chaos
Darryl the crushing tone
The wall of noise from Dr. Know
HR flew all around

Then time and place were challenged
Some reggae was a great flavor
Some dub could strike a great nerve
But back to back it repeated
What we craved more and more was that
That crazy white boy
That crazy white boy shit!

Some reggae takes you to heaven
Some dub can put you in space
But back to back it repeated
We ached for more and more of that
That crazy white boy
That crazy white boy shit!
That crazy white boy
That crazy white boy shit!
3. The Snake (Break Free) (1:57)
Force it down, lock it in
Hide it away like original sin
The panic builds, you're holding on
You feel it slipping, don't let it win
Don't let it win

It's back once again, unwanted old friend
Who keeps sneaking in
Dragging you down, gets under your skin
You feel you can't win
So why even try?

A darkness inside, inside your mind
It's taken its hold
A tightening grip, and down you slip
You want to give in

You've got to break out
You've got to break free
Break free!

Breathe out, breathe in
Stay calm and find the strength within
You see the light, a way out
It pulls you back, don't let it win
Don't let it win

It's back once again, unwanted old friend
Who keeps sneaking in
Dragging you down, gets under your skin
You feel you can't win, so why even try

A darkness inside, inside your mind
It's taken its hold
A tightening grip, and down you slip
You want to give in

You've got to break out
You've got to break free
Break free!

Trapped inside, the darkened mind
Nowhere to hide, you've got to
Break free!

Don't feed the lies, I think you'll find
You're not alone, reach out, fight
Break free!
4. Bull's Anthem (2:02)
We don't like the matadors
We just wanna see them fall
We will cheer the bull's success
Nothing more, nothing less

In this ring the bulls are king
We'll be here through thick and thin
We will cheer the bull's success
Nothing more, nothing less

With underdogs we stand
As long as there's a chance
As long as we are still breathing

Enter with your pride and sin
Exit in humility
We will cheer the bull's success
Nothing more, nothing less

In this ring are ruthless horns
Mightier than any sword
We will cheer the bull's success
Nothing more, nothing less

If you want blood
Come get your fill
The matador's is sure to spill
As long as we are still breathing

With underdogs we stand
As long as there's a chance
As long as we are still breathing

With underdogs we stand
(If you want blood)
(Come get your fill)
As long as there's a chance
(The matador's is sure to spill)
As long as we are still breathing
5. Robert Moses Was a Racist (1:28)
Hero, or so you thought
Only to the well-off
So called public beach
Not for everybody, he'd keep it out of reach

Bobby, Bobby, Bobby
You sneak!
You keep it, keep it, keep it out of reach
Bobby, Bobby, Bobby
You cheat!
You keep it, keep it, keep it
Keep it out of reach

Cold, pools are freezing cold
A subtle way to know
That you don't belong
Chill them to the bone
Build those bridges low
Keep them in control
Skin ain't the right tone
Zip ain't the right code

No riches
Low, them bridges
No admission
No condition
No admission
No condition
Bobby Moses had a vision

Bobby, Bobby, Bobby
You sneak!
You and your motherfuckin' motherfuckin' public beach
Bobby, Bobby, Bobby
You cheat!
You keep it, keep it, keep it, keep it, keep it, keep It
Keep it out of reach
6. Self Important Shithead (0:58)
Oh say can you see?
Oh can you see, can you see me?
Yes, I'm so lucky
I'm so lucky, lucky to be me

Self-important
Self-important
Self-important
Asshole

Self-important
Self-important
Self-important
Fuck you

Oh yes, oh yes indeed
It's so great that you know me
I hope you like my new selfie
It's me kissing me

Self-important
Self-important
Self-important
Asshole

Self-important
Self-important
Self-important
Hashtag

Self-important
Self-important
Self-important
Shithead

Self-important
Self-important
Self-important
Fuck off and die
7. To the Wolves (1:39)
They threw me to the wolves!
But I came back, leading the pack
The weight of the world
Pushing me down, but I'll push back
Fight to survive
Fought tooth and nail for every scrap
Whatever it takes
So dig down deep for motivation

You never get a second chance
'Less you get a second try
They can't see!
They can't stop me
Can't they see?
They can't keep me down, down

You never get a second chance
'Less you get a second try
They can't see me!
They can't stop me
Can't they see?
They can't keep me down, down

I will rise up!
Escape from the ash, the rat in the race
Weight of the world
Shrug off the pressures, push through the pain
Fight to survive
The long twisting road, that's leading our life
Whatever it takes
You dig down deep for motivation

Hard times! Heartbreaks! Hardships!
Can't let it stop you
Setback! Sold out! Stepped on!
You got to push through it

Hard times! Heartbreaks! Hardships!
Don't let it get to you
Setback! Sold out! Stepped on!
The power is inside of you
8. Always with Us (2:26)
Hey fellas remember when
We got that awful call?
My heart had sank down deep
For you we sing this song

I felt angry and alone
When I heard the news
My friends had gone away
In our hearts they live today

We carry you in our souls
Memories of it all
All the fun and drunken times
St. Feulliien will remind

Walk with me!
You walk with me!

You're in our hearts, you're in our souls
Now we'll never walk alone

A vision of you my friends
Makes me think of when
Carl Calandro got to you
I smile from ear to ear

Great times we had back then
In my mind they'll never end
We sing this song for you
So loud that you can hear

Walk with me!
You walk with me!

You're in our thoughts, you're in our minds
All the fun and good times

Today we remember them
Our pals, our brothers, our friends
You left us way too soon
So we sing this song for you!
9. Wake the Sleeping Dragon (2:02)
Nazis!
That shape our policy
And take our liberty
Dominated and controlled
Live free!
En masse through unity
Reclaim our sovereignty
Break the legs of the state

Can you hear me?
Help me? Free me?
Recognize the fact
That none of us are safe
Can you hear me?
Help me? Free me?
Decimate the masses
The means of this corrupt state

Nazis!
That shape our policy
And take our liberty
Dominated and controlled
Live free!
En masse through unity
Reclaim our sovereignty
Dominated and controlled
While led to slaughter
And you can smell the fear

Live free!
It's time to rise up
And turn away from fear
We are the government
Know that you're not
Helpless (Resist!)
Stand up (Persist!)
We're the ones in power if we're organized
Fight back (Resist!)
Stand up (Persist!)
Wake the sleeping dragon
In the middle of the night

Live free!
En masse through unity
Reclaim our sovereignty
It's time to fight!
10. 2+2 (1:49)
Life in transit!
Empty space, it fills my head
I pick my spots don't get me started
Life in transit!
Flights and trains, the mental games
Can't get no rest, it's always something

Bust it most every night
Get up early catch a flight
Ain't got no time for yourself
I'm running to the stage

Bust it most every night
Got no time to eat tonight
No complaints, we got it good
Was born to stalk the stage

Life in transit!
Break a leg, yeah I just might
The moment nears, I feel alright, yeah
Life in transit!
Understand we share this space
The greater cause to help each other

Bust it most every night
Get up early catch a flight
Ain't got no time for yourself
I'm running to the stage

Bust it most every night
Got no place to sleep tonight
No complaints, we got it good
Was born to stalk the stage

Here to play for you tonight
It's your turn now to make things right

Let's set this motherfucker off
And I be drinkin' cold broth
Let's get it straight!
2 plus 2 makes 100 strong
And we're up in this place just a-singing this song
Like the crow flies, we gonna get it done
You're my brothers, my sisters, and it's about love

Let's get it straight!
2 plus 2 makes 100 strong
11. Beef Between Vegans (2:12)
The road we're all sharing now is a sure way down
Armageddon's calling, it's a dreadful sound
We're sleeping through it well, even though it's Hell
That we're creating, we'll wake up, all burning there
And we'll be overwhelmed, we did this to ourselves
No way around it, our lavish excess, and
Reproduction will remove resources and
We'll lose our rule of the roost

Rescinded! Rejected! Revoked!

There will be tanks on Thanksgiving while we're flipping the bird
There will be conflict!
There will be beef between vegans like a spongiform herd
There will be conflict!
That's when you know that we're fucked and not meant to succeed
We'll be united in our states of hostility

Greed and deadly viral ways
Keep forcing nature's hand
What can She do but destroy and lay us to waste
Human's countless flaws will kick off many wars
The snowballing has been started
It's rolling, it's growing and growing

It will take us down, together
It will take us down! Together!
We would all be damned for our failure!

How can we quench our endless thirst? And
How can we put this in reverse? We've
Got the engine gunned and tanks are empty
No reserves, no concept of our frailty

We would all be damned for our failure
12. Hardcore Horseshoe (1:52)
So it's been a while
And what has changed?
Hair is thin and waist is fat
So what!
The music's slammin'
Like you did back in the day
It's not about standing still
Or losing will, or making way
It's time!
To take it back
And lose that hardcore horseshoe
Fill it in!

Give it some Minoxidil
Shake those inhibitions

Lose your mind, don't lose your temper
No one's splitting hairs
No one said to hurt each other
Break the pattern forming here

Let's be real, let's take our hats off
To the fun and proud
Come on up and be the hairpiece
Fix the bald spot in the crowd

Don't give up!
Restore that self-esteem

Don't give up!
And cut a rug right here

Don't give up!
Don't let that front recede

Move up!
And start wiggin' out

Lose your mind don't lose your temper
Or there'll be Hell toupee
Come on up and join the party
Break the pattern in this place

Let's be real, let's take our hats off
To the fun and proud
Come on up and join the party
Fix the bald spot in the crowd
13. Mental Furlough (2:16)
Sometimes I think
Why do I bother?
Why do I try so hard?
There are no thanks
No recognition
Or even a pat on the back

The pressure builds
And overloads
My circuits are going haywire
What I need most
A mental furlough
A limbo, or I'll blow my stack

No one makes sense and I cannot relate!

These fuckin' people
Their fuckin' minds
It's like a different language
A different wavelength
Another world
I'm fucked, and I don't belong in this mess

I don't belong
Furlough!

It's time to set things back to where they were before
Restore my sense of pride at my very core
Compromised, compromised
Gave it all away
Drained and exhausted
There's nothing left to give anymore

And like a storm, it rises
This existential crisis

Shattered! I'm shattered!
I can't stop fading away
Broken! I'm broken!
I back off more every day

Man, I'm suffering
The more it closes in
It's forcing me to disengage
I'm shattered! So shattered!
Losing my grip, and I'm losing my way
14. Deep State (1:53)
Misinformation
Is flooding down the stream
Opinion skews the facts
This isn't what It seems

Headlines with no content
Clickbait to distract
Unrest and paranoia
Fearful to react

Social commentary
Switch the outrage, change the news
Media corporations
Spin the coverage, write the views
Each side is reciting
"I AM RIGHT AND YOU ARE WRONG!"
Sowing more division was intent all along

History disguised in cover-ups and lies
Angry dissertations from conspiracy sites
Propaganda platforms feed unrest online
Identity politics made them all follow blind

Deep state, false flags!
They'll wave them for you high
Deep state, false flags!
Half mast for those who died

Deep state, false flags!
Salute them, not the truth
Deep state, false flags!
Make sure they're headline news

False. Flags
False flags!
False. Flags
False flags!

Social commentary
Switch the outrage, change the news
Media corporations
Spin the coverage, write the views
Each side is reciting
"I AM RIGHT AND YOU ARE WRONG!"
Sowing more division was intent all along
15. Bad Hombres (2:01)
We don't want your poor
Or your huddled masses
They're not part of our scheme
The new American Dream!

Land of the free but not today
They took those streets of gold
These dreams are gone unless you can pay
All our rights have been bought and sold

We're gonna build a wall
To take care of you all
From the dangers unseen
Whatever the fuck that means

You'll be liberty free
The new American Dream!

Land of the free but not today
They took those streets of gold
Those dreams are gone unless you can pay
All our rights have been bought and sold
Bought and sold

False pride will build that wall
Some day it's gonna fall
Ignorance will build that wall
Some day it's gonna fall
Fall, some day you're gonna fall
16. Work the System (1:46)
Work the system!
As a poor man
Without options, what's your choice?
No connections in this country
You're facing some tough odds

Work the system!
Get a handout
Catch a break when things get rough
No foundation or safety net means
You could fall right through the cracks and
Crash like penny stocks
What it takes to feed a family
Ain't asking a lot

Work the system!
As a rich man
Risk it all for all of us
CEO's with a lack of scruples
Still get bonused up

Work the system!
Get a bailout
Catch a break when you fuck up
Corporations write the rules and
Keep financial criminals from facing prison time
Do the wrong thing, get rewarded
It's what causes struggle and strife
Everyone's life hanging by a thread

Just one drop!
From that bucket would suffice
Just one drop!
Would improve so many lives
Just one drop!
From that fucking one percent
Just one zero!
Off their crazy dividends
Just one change!
In how the wealth is spread
Just one little drop!
Could put this to an end
17. The New Slavery (2:38)
Something works against us
Something we don't know
Something that is faceless
Somehow in control
Secret from the public
Pulling all the strings
Rolling in their money
The bloodiest of things

Enemies! Enemies!
Hidden in the dark
Fallacies! Fallacies!
Tearing us apart

Fuck the media
I'm not crazy
I'm not falling for their lies

Fuck the Government!
They're just pawns
They serve the same as you and I

Do you feel its pressure?
Do you feel its hand?
Cutting down ambition
Our spirit and our drive

Powerless! Powerless!
There's no freedom yet
It's the new slavery, in eternal debt

Fuck the media
I'm not crazy
I'm not falling for their lies

Fuck the Government!
I'm not buying what their power signifies
It's all corporate by design
Now our country's lost control
To the demons of the world
How can I be proud of this?
This is my home!
This is my home!
