1. Public Enemy (3:37)
What do you see when you look at me? Am I the byproduct of tragedy? One of the many of a lost generation, born in the ruins of a broken nation. Politics are parlor tricks. Hate and fear sold in different languages. How long will it take for you to realize that we’ve had enough, and we’re over it

You can beat me, lie to me, disrespect me, see how long it’ll take me to break and fall apart, as if I ain’t got the heart to carry on this fight. We’ve seen the darkest nights. Damned me from the start when you label me public enemy number one. That’s alright, ‘cause I’ll take you all on
You can beat me, lie to me, disrespect me as far as you can see, you will never break me. Beat me, lie to me, disrespect me. Overseer, overseer, overseer. Am I not the future? Am I not the one to carry on the legacy? Why is the verdict out before you even heard me speak?

Well, I’m not torn. You’re torn. God tell me how long we can go on like this, so unfocused on the bigger picture. United we rise, divided we die, and you’re so obsessed with our demise. The epitome of tyranny, you turned your back against me. If this is war, you can’t win it. You will never break my spirit. You can beat up on my body, but you’ll never see me break and fall apart, as if I ain’t got the heart to carry on this fight. We’ve seen the darkest nights. Damned me from the start when you label me public enemy number one

Hey, hey, are you listening?

Hey, hey, can you hear me?

It goes on and on, it goes on and on. Survival of the fittest when the hate is so strong. Unity, rebellion is the armor that I don, to combat the agenda. Brick walls for the barrier, build fear and hysteria. Drop bombs in my area. The gun is superior. This is the revolt coming live through your speaker. Can’t stop, won’t stop. You will never see us break and fall apart, as if I ain’t got the heart to carry on this fight. We’ve seen the darkest nights. Damned me from the start, when you label me public enemy number one
2. End Transmission (3:39)
Where did we go? How could we stray so far away? Delusional, tell me that we’re not the ones to blame. I suggest you walk this lonely road to find redemption and become a hero. Resolution, don’t watch the eyes. Never mind the words

A million miles away, it seems that I don’t belong in this place. Is there another way? I find myself closer to a satellite
Begin drifting, mind body and soul become one. Defy the laws of gravity. Stare at the sun, challenging all reality. The glass door to my soul is shattering. The bridges to my past are collapsing. I feel new energy. This is my quickening. Transcending to a new dimension

A million miles away, it seems that I don’t belong in this place. Is there another way? I find myself closer to a satellite

Float away
3. Excuse Me (4:04)
[Verse 1]
Look what I've found, come get down
It's that revolution sound
Call it second emancipation, break these chains and let me out
It's not violence I'm on about, but riot boots still hit the ground
Lower the gun put down the whip
Take a step back hear me out
I am fanatic, employ guerrilla tactics
Open up this lyrical automatic and put holes in your rhetoric
It's archaic, kind of chaotic, almost barbaric
But yet you stand and you swear by it
And I've been readily, steadily waiting for a chance to resist
The devil is a liar, topple the empire
Blood sweat tears and desire
I put my heart into this
Never forget I'm a soldier
I will not be conquered

[Chorus]
I can't walk this road forever, and I can't forget the past
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me
It's destroying me within, my need for emancipation
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me
[Post-Chorus]
Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, equality and justice for all
Now you know you lying

[Verse 2]
You on that shotgun philosophy, celebrate the tragedy
Build an effigy high to the heavens to remind me and blind me
Turn the whole world into my enemy
Control my destiny and drain all my energy
It's insane to me
Got the whole nation sedated and medicated
A testimony to the violence
Yet you still give me that ghetto education
Basically priming me to feed me to the prison industry
I see all of the cowards, the greed, the need to hold control over me
Break these chains, end the power
I'd rather you give back what you stole from me

[Chorus]
I can't walk this road forever, and I can't forget the past
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me
It's destroying me within, my need for emancipation
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me

[Bridge]
Excuse me Mr. Officer, come out of my sector
No need to stress, no need for vex

[Verse 3]
Yo, excuse me your honor, fuck the drama
No apologies, I save that for my mama
Take my name off of the docket
Drop all these charges
All it took was a spark, all it took was a catalyst
Martin said it best, I live a life with no violence
So I speak up, no longer silent
I begin to see
My third eye is opening
My resolve is strengthening
I yearn to be free

[Chorus]
I can't walk this road forever, and I can't forget the past
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me
It's destroying me within, my need for emancipation
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me

[Bridge]
Excuse me Mr. Officer no need for war
Trying to drain my energy, but you can't keep me down

[Outro]
I can't walk this road forever, and I can't forget the past
My soul is under pressure, but it won't kill me
4. Composition (3:57)
I'm so sick of the program that says you live to feed the machine, and then you die. S tuck in a maze with no plan, searching for the answers to what, how, and why. I'm so sick of the bullshit. I've played myself too many times. Excuses, I'm done with them. The truth hits harder than a shotgun, then I knew I couldn't stay at the bottom where I'm from. I saw it in a vision, took a look at my position, made freedom my only mission. Execute with the true precision. A revolution of my mental got me thinking that I'm on the brink of scratching through the surface

My mind and soul balance and equalize in me. 'Cause let me tell you bruh, I've been through everything. I'm not going back. There's no room at the bottom where I'm from
I'm never going back ('cause there's no room at the bottom where I'm from). I'm never going back (brick by brick I laid my own foundation). I'm never going back ('cause there's no honor in giving up). I've felt weak and powerless (but the fire inside helped me get through)

Defy the program that says you live to feed the machine, and then you die. I hold my life in my own hands. I've found the answers to what, how, and why

I've seen it in a vision, brick by brick laid the foundation. There's no honor in giving up, so I just gotta keep it moving. That revolution happened deep inside, so I let the spirit guide. Now I'm strong where I was powerless

I'm never going back ('cause there's no room at the bottom where I'm from). I'm never going back (brick by brick I laid my own foundation). I'm never going back ('cause there's no honor in giving up). I've felt weak and powerless (but the fire inside helped me get through)

And I feel stronger now. I feel I could conquer the world now. If I get it, I get it by grinding, by the sweating of my brow. A bit wiser now, and the world is only getting colder. I evolve (progress) a little further, but still looking over my shoulder, and it ain't over. I assemble all my strength to move these boulders. I'm on the side of a mountain shouting. I'm getting louder. Fuck destiny. You'll never get the best of me. I'm gonna set the world on fire and unleash the beast in me

I'm never going back. ('cause there's no room at the bottom where I'm from). I'm never going back (brick by brick I laid my own foundation). I'm never going back (cause there's no honor in giving up). I've felt weak and powerless (but the fire inside helped me get through)
5. Evolve (3:31)
We've played this game before, but it never seems to change. We die, it still remains the same. A hidden hand in the dark, and no one seems to know how far down the rabbit hole goes

You don't ask any questions, you don't even care. You just fall in line, swallow the pill and follow
Are we all blind? Why can't we see? I can't believe we all just follow the leader. How can we evolve if we live in the shadow? I can't believe we all still follow the leader

We haven't learned a thing. We still play along. I fear the worst is yet to come, and it all falls apart right before our eyes. Too scared to read between the lines. Bury our heads in the sand. Turn our back on the inevitable end. We just fall in line, swallow the pill and follow

Are we all blind? Why can't we see? I can't believe we all just follow the leader. How can we evolve if we live in the shadow? I can't believe we all still follow the leader

Will you play the game, will you follow? Will you play the game, will you follow the leader? I'd rather be dead and buried than give in. I'd rather be dead and buried, than give up my soul. I'd rather be dead. I'd rather be and dead than give in

Are we all blind? Why can't we see? I can't believe we all just follow the leader. How can we evolve if we live in the shadow? I can't believe we all still follow the leader. Will you follow?
6. Pretenders (4:47)
It's time to go all out
Heed these words coming out my mouth
I've held back for too long
I've been feinin' to get this off my chest
And say this out loud
False messenger, false prophet
You never suffered a day in your life
You know you need to stop it
You look good as a clone, man
Live your own life and don't pretend
You don't know what it's like
To get beat down and shit on by life
I've seen it all before
Yes blood, I've been through war
Straight facts, no lies
The truth is in my hungry eyes

Let me tell you it's not easy
You better believe me
This is real
Well I know, well I know it's hard sometimes
You better believe me
Cause this is real
Now this one goes out to the people who struggle through
The ones that fight the odds and break the mold
And put it all on the line just for survival
Cause you know what it's like
You've been through the same fight
You know what it is to face the end
But for all of you that try to pretend
You don't know what it's like
To get beat down and shit on by life
I've seen it all before
Yes blood, I've been through war
Straight facts, no lies
The truth is in my hungry eyes
Let me tell you, it's not easy

You better believe me
This is real
Well I know, well I know it's hard sometimes
You better believe me
Cause this is real
Sing it with me if you know it's real
Sing it with me if you feel it too
You better believe me
Cause this is real

With our backs against the wall, we stand tall
With our backs against the wall, we stand tall
We will stand tall
With our backs against the wall, we stand tall
We will stand tall

Fucking hell, I've heard it over and over again
How you've been through the struggle
How you've been through the war
But we know that's a lie my friend
Fall back with the hate that you're spewing
Forgive him father, cause' he doesn't know what he's doing
Life's about survival, and we're survivors
So don't act like you're the only one

Let me tell you it's not easy
You better believe me
This is real
Well I know, well I know it's hard sometimes
You better believe me
Cause this is real
Sing it with me if you know it's real
If you've been there, been through the pain
Been through the hell, you know it's real
Sing it with me if you feel it too
You better believe me cause this is real
7. Diversion (3:05)
Forward motion is the only option. I'm pushing hard, but the current is stronger. My heart has carried me as far I think I can go, and I could drown if I stop or I falter. The sea is full of sharks as far as the eye can see, and they can't wait for the chance to devour me. They smell the blood and they begin to circle. I gotta do my best to stay afloat. Life isn't easy like I thought it would be. I could tell you lies just to make it better

This is nothing like they show on TV, so if you want the truth just come with me. Forget everything, reject the lie you've been sold. Forget everything, reject the lie, reject the diversion
Donny told me I would make a million. I heard the force was strong with this one. I put my head down and drank the poison, but it turned out to be a pack of lies. They've always lied to me in front of my face. They told me I would make it. Join the rat race. Life isn't easy like I thought it would be. I could tell you lies just to make it better. This is nothing like they show on TV, so if you want the truth just come with me. Forget everything, reject the lie you've been sold. Forget everything, reject the lie, reject the diversion

I'm trying as hard as I can, and if I stop now I will end up a dead man. I'm trying as hard as I can, can't stop now, if I do I'm a dead man. I'm not used to that complacency like you are. That life you live, it ain't me we're not on par. No need to shine, I just grind, and I get mine
8. In Spite of Doubt (3:50)
How many shots can you take at me before I give you the reaction you're looking for? How many times do you think you can push and pull and put me through the back and forth? Glory hallelujah. I've finally seen the light. Oh thank the heavens. I'm making a mess of this. Glory hallelujah. What's the moral of the story? I'm losing balance. The ground is shaking

I've fallen. I've crossed the edge. I'm fading deeper and deeper, losing perception
In case you missed the point, or been left in doubt, allow me to reiterate what I'm about. The hard times have shaped and molded me, turned me inside out. No matter what, I'll survive with the strength of I and I

Who's next? I'm gonna step into the ring. Bad boy selector. I've come to compete. Don't get it twisted. From time to time we all fall, but never mistake that for weakness. Must refocus, find my motivation. A momentary lack of concentration. Sadly they underestimate. I sit back and wait, let my strength incubate

I've fallen. I've crossed the edge. I'm fading deeper and deeper, losing perception. Inside paralyzed, reaching for the outside. Inside I will find a way to carry on and survive

I know what it takes to be me. You might underestimate but you don't hold no weight

I've fallen. I've crossed the edge. Now I'm fading deeper and deeper, losing perception. Inside paralyzed, reaching for the outside. Inside I will find a way to carry on and survive
9. Lifeline (4:18)
Here comes doubt again saying I'm not good enough. Look at all the things that you've done wrong for so long. I built my own personal hell, searched the world for answers and found nothing. Oh well. It was on me to conquer the fear that was killing me and find the fighter inside

This is the only thing that keeps me breathing. I traded my pain and ignorance, when all hope is lost I live again
Have you seen the edge, have you ever walked the ledge? I have stared into the depths, there was nothing staring back at me but my body, lifeless. Caught somewhere between heaven and hell, of the stories I could tell, I'd rather not, but oh well here it is. Here's to me and the person I used to be. Now here comes my past again to devour me

You're not an individual, you're a mindless, selfish, indulgent animal. You're all alone, broken without a soul, left with nothing to call your own

This is the only thing that keeps me breathing. I traded my pain and ignorance, when all hope is lost I live again

I remember those days of pain when I was on my knees, pleading to the heavens for a god to come rescue me. Pray to thin air, it was just as I feared, my prayers fell on deaf ears. It took some time, but I woke up and found a lifeline screaming, "Wake up and open your eyes!" (bring me back to life)

This is the only thing that keeps me breathing. I traded my pain and ignorance, when all hope is lost I live again
10. Into the Blue (4:04)
I'm sick of lying and telling myself that it's all good, it's gonna work out. Living in doubt. Running away from the truth just to accommodate you. What can I do? Tell me why I should deny who I am, and wear a disguise
Unfortunately we built our house on sand, and the tide is coming in. This is the end

I might let go, I'm not feeling this anymore. Caught in the undertow, I can't take this anymore. I might move on, I might move on. Just let go. I'm not feeling this anymore

How many mistakes, how many days till we find out how much we can take? Again and again I play back what was said in the back of my head. But that's in the past, and like life gone, yeah you know it's dead. All of this effort for nothing just to hold tight on to something dying in my hands, reeling from losing again

Another wave crashes in. This is the end

I might let go, I'm not feeling this anymore. Caught in the undertow, I can't take this anymore. I might move on, I might move on. Just let go. I'm not feeling this anymore

Take a good look around, the walls are caving in. Take a good look around, we're drowning

I see the water rushing in. Wash me away

I might let go, I'm not feeling this anymore. Caught in the undertow, I can't take this anymore. I might move on, I might move on. Just let go. I'm not feeling this anymore
