See the way the wind blows
Lives are intertwined
Watch the way the world goes
The man deals out our plight

Jester in the corner
Laughs without a sound
Jester in the corner
Malady abounds
In our souls

See the way the sun sets
Twilight of this life
The man is making little bets
Playing with our lives

All that I believe now
Anything is possible
A simple explanation
For the evil in this world
And in our souls
In our souls

Come down to sorry and sable
It's always the man
Always keeping you down

Bow down cause I see it before me
Shadow and light
That always keeps you running

Shut up you talk too much
Pay the man
Shut up you talk too much

Look at you and your struggle for freedom
But you ain't nothing
We all pay the man for living

Wouldn't it be nice for a change now
To be unchained
My life is for me now
But this is life
Pay the man

Shut up you talk too much
Pay the man
Shut up you talk too much
Pay the man

Falling, I'm falling

Have you ever walked through a room
But it was more like the room passed around you
Like there was a leash around your neck that pulled you through

Have you ever been at someplace
Recognizing everybody's face
Until you realized that there was no one there you knew
Well I know

Some days, my soul's confined and out of mind
Sleep forever
Some days, I'm so outshined and out of time
Have you ever

Falling, I'm falling

Have you ever buried your face in your hands
Cause no one around you understands
Or has the slightest idea what it is that makes you be

Have you ever felt like there was more
Like...

How does it feel?
When you have it all?
How can you live?
With nothing at all?

Where do you run?
Where do you go?
When the holes in your truth
Are starting to show?

And the rain comes
And the world is on my head
Crave the sun
But I can't get out of bed

How can you take?
Without giving back?
How does it work?
When it's really cracked?

How does it feel...
And no wonder
Hearts and minds have been won
How does it feel...
And I wonder
How it's all come undone

And the rain comes
And the world is on my head
Crave the sun
But I can't get out of bed

Want it You got it You're sorry You bought it You're sliding
Want it You got it You're sorry You bought it Can't hide it
Tell me who do you see
Cause you look a lot like me

How can you take?
Without giving back?
Who do you see?
Cause you look a lot like me

Try to remember, the echoes and embers
Are heavy on my mind
The pictures are broken, the front door is open
The scars are left behind
Tables turn you once they burning
Leaving me undone
A vision shaking till I break I
Swear to god more words can you just hear me
Just really hear me

I've been drowning in the sea
Of tryna to pleasing you
It's all I ever been, it's all I ever know
I try to be me, but I'm turning into you

... is hurting, the drugs aren't working
The wall come crushing down
A never attraction, my insurrection
It's crawling back somehow
Tables turn these words they burn I
Never should have come
A vision...

Show me how to lie
You're getting better all the time
And turning all against the one
Is an art that's hard to teach
Another clever word
Sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back into line
A mob jumps to their feet

Now dance, fucker, dance
Man, he never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you steal away
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far, kid

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit 'em right between the eyes
Hit 'em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See 'em running for their lives

Slowly out...

Never knew where to go
Never used to go to at night
Thinking but I didn't know
Never could seem to get it right
But I've made up my mind
Yeah I've made up my mind

I wanna feel important
I wanna feel alive
Don't talk to me
Don't talk to you
You know I'm lying
You know the truth

Yeah, I'm on a Mission From God
It sounds kinda crazy but I like it a lot
I'm an answer to the man up above
It's me he's speaking of
Yeah, so I'm just a fortunate son?
Everybody wants to be the chosen one
I'm on a mission
I'm on a mission from God

I went to Pensacola just to get an opinion
A perfect California get it straight in my mind
Take...

When cops are taking care of business I can understand
But the L.A. story's gone way out of hand
Their acts of aggression, they say they're justified
But it seems an obsession has started from the inside
They're shooting anyone who even tries to run
They're shooting little kids with toy guns
Take it to a jury but they don't give a damn
Because the one who tells the truth is always the
policeman

Beat all the niggers
Beat whoever you see
Don't need a reason
(We're) L.A.P.D.

The city of L.A. feels like a prison
With helicopters overhead and bullets whizzing by
Martial law ain't no solution
Police brutality's...

In a world without leaders
Who'd start all the wars?
The world that you're saving
Will always be yours

Kill the President
Listen to the voice of reason
Unify with that single line
Stop the man with the power
Of the government
A leader's not the center
Of democracy

In a world without leaders
Who'd make people starve?
The world that we're saving
Will always be ours

Everyone says
Well maybe I'll make a difference
Thinking they've got plenty of time
But you're squeezed
A little tighter everyday
Punished before you can commit a crime

In a world without leaders
Who'd start all the wars?
The world that you're saving
Will...

Look at me I'm falling off
Of a cliff now
I can still hear my mama yelling no no no
But the words mean nothing
Can't catch up to me now
And the view is so beautiful
All the way down
When I was a little boy
Sucking juice from a bottle
Believing my perceptions were oh so real
But I didn't know nothing
Still know nothing
Was just enough for me to know the way I feel

This is life
What a fucked up thing we do
What a nightmare come true
Or a playground if we choose
And I choose

Look at me I'm swollen
Like a bananafish now
I'm never gonna make it out of my hole
But I keep on laughing
Doesn't really matter
There's dozens...

Hitting walls for a feet
With our friends and we hear this free
All the dogs, dropping bombs
He see

Huck it
You don't have the ties
You won't have the eyes
Huck it
Cause you realize
You don't need to justify
That cable show is not the lives we know

Drop a bomb in the publics eye
Fuck the Spartans they always lie
You are pointing to go fast and GO
Broken bombs and baking skin
Notify your next of kin
You'll know you'll come alive some day

Huck it
Now you feel alive,
stinks like shit all the time
Huck it
Its like you gotta try
risky shit, by the time
You can not practice lay it on the line
Huck it
Now you're down in luck...

One is for envy and one just for spite
The cuts in my heart, they show in your eyes
Don't make it better
The twisting knife turns a blind self onto someone else

By self-liberation we'll leave this behind
Beyond swings and errors they ain't on our mind
To make it better, shake it off
It never mattered anyway

If we don't make it alive
Well, it's a hell of a good day to die
All our light that shines strong
Only last for so long
And it's ashes to ashes again
Should we even try to pretend?
All our light that shines strong
Only last for so long

The banner you're waving is burning in red
It's blocking the sunlight...
