Blueprint 01:50
No Mercy 03:28
Piece of flesh Drop of blood Pound for pound I will cut you down You've had your chance You know where I stand There will be no mercy When you think you've escaped from me (you won't) The moment you don't fear and pray I'll shatter the fantasy you've gotten away Weak motherfucker it's the price you'll pay A head for an eye A stab for a cut Ignorance is bliss till you're begging to die Now you're afraid of the consequence for the choices you've made Self-realization: I exist to hurt A murderous secret I hide in my chest A pact of violence that I've suppressed I've planned your death and I'm fuckin obsessed I touched darkness and let out a smile Degrade myself just to feel a while Disgusting and perverse, condemn my soul I thrive in agony it makes me whole No mercy for myself No mercy for anyone else
Sacrifice 02:36
Sacrifice myself Cauterize the wounds in acceptance Sacrifice myself Momentary aches stop the bleeding of innocents Self-induced illusions to hide the truth Sacrifice myself Denial, my delusions, paranoia grew Sacrifice myself Poison eases, so I abstain Searching for salvation and uncovering pain Worth is relative, I'm worthless Useless A layer of hell all to myself I've thrown it away and I'll do it again This time with purpose, not like back then Sacrifice myself Sacrifice knowing there was never anything Sacrifice knowing I will always be nothing The crying face of my mother, gotta make this right For you I'd die, make this my last night No light Sacrifice myself Sacrifice no light
245A 03:30
The process begins With the reduction of a soul to a color Stripping traditions, suppressing identity Bleaching our minds, the only remedy Justice is nowhere The innocents left in anguish Self-hatred instilled Systematic oppression Correlation of color and suspicion Scales imbalanced, only money connects Impoverished grieve, true evil collects A place where race threatens security Born charged with the crime of impurity Guns to my face Cuffs on my wrist Knees to my back Treat me like a savage And I'll become the animal you want me to be A jaundice complexion Provoking true disgust Black eyes, no expression The essence of distrust Reduce me Condition me Incarcerate me I will never be free
Ethnic Decay 02:06
Buildings are crumbling The earth is shaking My patience collapsing The pain forsaking I'm watching my country burn to the ground Follow the smoke and don't make a sound The American Dream isn't what it seems It's an enticing cover filled with lies on the pages in between Laying your train tracks Cutting your grass Racially profiled Police attacks Your sense of pride It's polished trash Don't forget Who created this divide The peace was never there A sleeping beast roused by genocide Only a matter of time Till our worlds collide Purification of the human race Violation of our God given rights Masturbation of your rotting minds Devastation of your perfect world
W.M.D. 03:17
I am the man I never wanted to be Living with the guilt for those I've hurt Light casts the shadow of an addict A lingering reminder of my failures Treading in a lake of sin Bricks of my past crammed within Righteousness pulling at my skin Darkness envelops all Standing in the distance a menacing blur A haze of confusion, in the shape of fear By the time you hear You're already dead Courage, circumstantial and temporary Moments of strength dictate your destiny Nothing is forever Love exists only through hatred My endless pride Smug and horrified Controlled by greed Watching others bleed Insatiable lust Violating trust Divine wrath My blood stained path True fear, embraced by those who survive Every breath I take fills my lungs With envy for the happiness deprived Cleanse the earth and say goodbye If seeing is believing, I've watched myself die
