Away

Verse 1
I've been watching you for a while now
It sounds sinister
But it's far from being devious
It's not in my nature to be
You're the one who is closer
To being on the dark side
Like a hurricane, what you do is unsettling

Verse 2
You think of yourself as royalty
Destined to rule over everything including me
Regardless of your beliefs
I'll never bow down to you
The crown you've placed upon your head
Is as fake as faux fur

Bridge 1
Don't come to me like a b-itch
Your harassment is out of style
I reject your drama
You won't inflict trauma

Bridge 2
My blood doesn't boil
As I've reached a new level of stillness
My voice doesn't carry the undertones of a call to arms
Transcending your influence was a struggle
But, ultimately, was successful

Chorus
Tales of loneliness and misery are a dime a dozen
If you flood this town with your tears
I'll build a cruise ship
And travel to where you don't reside
I must always be away from you

Astray

Verse 1
Let any type of animal feast on their bodies
They have descended to their level
So, it's apropos
Listen to their screams of horror
And watch as they're devoured
If that isn't epic, then tell me what is
They were chosen for greatness
But lived as beggars and losers
A thousand times removed from the original source
A repetitive mode and regressing
Unable to dream of dancing with the stars
Water and oxygen were wasted on them

Verse 2
Compromising positions were orchestrated and accepted
Attention was the most valuable currency
Lack of shame and lack of outrage
Were visible in sound and thought
Males acted like eunuchs
While the females ran wild

Bridge
The foundation of justice is self-respect
But when you hate yourself
You essentially become worthless
Fear of reality is pervasive
As anything can be weaponized

Chorus
What they perceived as being salvation
Ultimately failed them
Everything ranging from education to religion
As cities crumbled to the ground
And hunger consumed more bodies
The sins of the ancestors were recycled
An epidemic of broken spirits
Was the general state of being
The art of living was lost to history
Most diseases were incurable
And most battles were unwinnable
Responsibility for failure was passed around
They've gone astray and nothing can save them

Untitled

Verse 1
Without sympathies or indulgences
The view is much clearer
Always moving around with the world
Not tossed about like a rag doll
Using the ground as a platform for elevation
Hands untied and a body full of determination

Verse 2
Partially n-ude with senses and expressions
A history of complications and servitude
Creating a new character and motives
The setting is the same
But everything is as different as black and white
Ignore gossip folks and those seething with jealousy

Bridge 1
Undoing and becoming
Attaching and going through
Cycles of chaos and clarity
The mind in overdrive

Bridge 2
To fight is to be one step closer to victory
To win is to solidify a place among the mighty
To implement acquired knowledge is to be wise
To accept what's within is a form of creation
The future is a grand mystery

Chorus 1
Nothing is completely secure
The weak and the evil have loosened the screws
The screws of balance and of liberty
Fear doesn't have to be constricting amid ongoing feuds
Breathing to die is ignoring attainable realities
It's useless and it's wasteful
It's shameful and it's tragic
Lessons are taught for the purposes of learning
To grow over and replant roots

Chorus 2
Nothing is completely secure
The weak and the evil have loosened the screws
The screws of balance and liberty
Fear doesn't have to be constricting amid ongoing feuds
Breathing to die is ignoring attainable realities

Edge of Nowhere

Verse 1
Teenyboppers dancing and dying
For the latest bands and all things trendy
With fragrances, Mohawks and skinny jeans
Smartphones displaying more intelligence than them
Mommies more limited than they'll ever admit to
Frazzled and burnt out in the modern age
New inventions create new complications
Don't be surprised if we're replaced by robots

Verse 2
As we watch procedurals, we become more clueless
Snapping out of bad habits is difficult
But if we prevail, the reward is great
We'll know that we can overcome our addictions
Sleeping with the enemy is what your daddy did
Until driven away and banished by the state
Reparations are never paid to the youth
We can't hide from them
They see us fully and completely

Verse 3
Activism in dwindling supply
Unions caving in
Will the boss man win?
Aliens are seen as the last great hope
The antidote to every illness and conflict
If you drink the Kool-Aid
You'll drain yourself of blood
Living in a mad house will be your new home
When things become q-ueer and more unrelatable
Only the designers can create new styles of living

Chorus
Let's all join hands and chew bubblegum
Make a s-ex tape and gossip all day
When we're brand new, we're unlimited
But everything becomes tainted
Sparks shine a bit dimmer
The light is less vibrant
And we're pushed closer to the edge
The edge of nowhere

Unmasked

Verse 1
My people and I love you
We accept you, we worship you
Even though you resemble our oppressors
We always get down on our knees
And pray to you
When we're afraid, we call unto you
When we're pissed off
We use you as an attack dog
Like a cafeteria, we pick and choose
What we want to consume
Now almost all of us are full of your teachings

Verse 2
You're an incomplete being in a fully formed world
Seeking power to dominate over others
Constructing illusions is at the core of your culture
You're not the standard
Even though many believe that you are
You'll use anything if it's advantageous
For destabilization, you'll create movements
Your inquisitiveness is without boundaries
As a foreigner, you're established to every land and sea

Verse 3
Not many of us dissolve the rhetoric
Even fewer of us challenge the icons
If history is in repetitive modes
Then the cycles of madness are never-ending
Can we neutralize artificial ideologies?
Can we dismantle the houses of inferiorities?
When we're who we are
We're settled into the truth
It's the center of everything
The ultimate authority

Chorus
Reinvention and reincarnation are coming into fruition
Displaced thoughts and images are becoming more clearer
Through decontamination and healing
You've been unmasked

Man (Just Do It)

Verse 1
You're taller, you're stronger, you're faster
It's incumbent on you to be wiser
The ways of the world rest on your shoulders
However heavy it may seem at times
Responsibility is expected of you
It's always in your face
You can't ignore it
Like a stampede of elephants in the center of town

Verse 2
You're always surrounded by supporters and villains
You'll be congratulated while others will throw shade
The power you generate and the power you exert
Will guarantee respect and the bending to your will
You can't be reckless in your position
If that occurs, your weaknesses will be exploited
Your odyssey will be in jeopardy

Verse 3
You're led to believe that boys don't cry
And when you come of age
You realize that fairy tales are glorified lies
Suppressing what you experience is not conducive
To a healthy state of mind
If balance is to be achieved
Senses must function properly
You don't have the luxury of dreaming
To being a robot
Everything will come down to the wire
And you'll be one decision away from demise

Bridge
There's no such thing as luck
What you get is what you receive
Be the author of a narrative
To which you subscribe to
When you're in control, you're always in demand

Chorus
You're a man, just do it
Don't waste your time with gossip or flakes
Walk like you've got a big d-ick
Look to the sky and reach for it
Be prepared to fight
To protect what you create, what you own
All eyes are on you
And every moment is yours to lose

Big Love

Verse 1
In and out of love
Losing and reclaiming your senses
Head over feet and feet deeply immersed in hot water
On top of the world, ruling like a king
But when it's no longer simple, you've been dethroned
Stop and smell the roses because nothing last forever
But you promised to cherish and obey
Until your last breath
A fool among the suckers
Nothing more than ordinary
When attention is given, time comes to a halt

Verse 2
Rocking and rolling to sublime, classic vibes
Lost in the energies created from tribal sounds
The fatherland gave way to all that exist
To whom much is given, much is required
It goes beyond skin
As it comes from deep within
Electricity is generated when you're whole and complete
But there's an epidemic of brokenness
And confusion is pervasive
As you're afforded many options
Pleasure blends into pain

Verse 3
You're tired of walking with an abundance of emotions
Being pulled in every direction
Is more exhausting than it seems
Comfort is in small supply
As most remain home and dry
With common minds and lack of fortitude
All that they are has been inherited
Without shame or outrage
Thoughts and actions are stagnant
Desire for recognition and peace lingers on
It goes unfulfilled

Chorus
As natural as water and air
As complex as the solar system
As powerful as a nuclear weapon
Big love, big love, big love
The living force in every creature
The cause of every effect
The only thing real to all
Big love, big love, big love

Vibes

Verse 1
So mesmerized, completely hooked
On your breath and your sounds
There are no words to describe
What I get from seeing you
Top to bottom, in and out
You're joyfully different
Fly me to the moon
And let's live on every planet

Verse 2
When I drink from your cup of cool
I'm radically energized
It's like the sun lives in me
And every need is fulfilled
Inner storms have been calmed
Peace has taken hold
The benefits you deliver are genuine and whole

Bridge
When every thought and cell are in sync
And the expressions you create are pure
Whatever force is generated
Will be greater than you realize
You'll develop hungry eyes

Chorus
You've mastered the bass in your mind
Teach me how to multiply the vibes
And to let it flow with my blood
You're an engaging mystery
Who's able to bring forth wonder and spectacles
Teach me how to multiply the vibes
And to let it flow with my blood

The Young And The Restless

Verse 1
Gathered around a table
In a well-designed boardroom
Ivy leaguers laying out a plan
With opinions and data collected from various sources
This information is as valuable as gold
There's a great desire to be still in body and mind
Suits and scientists are acting accordingly

Women will criticize each other for their shortcomings
Men will mock the ones who don't measure up
To their standards
No one goes unscathed
A nip and a tuck
With a radical change in values
Is what the professionals have agreed upon

Verse 2
Serial slashers are well-compensated
Their stock on the celebrity index increases
As lips become thicker, so do their wallets
The authentic movement is teaching the young
To embrace themselves as they are
But the fake industries work overtime
To create inferiority complexes
With funds that seem to be unlimited
This battle will be long and arduous
The professionals and simple folks
Will not give up the fight
There is just too much at stake

Bridge
With futures as bright as the sun
And high optimism
The agendas of men are put into effect
Everyone has a role to play
In this game of life
As the young and the restless

Chorus 1
We always want to be young
To be fresh and be full of life
Time is never on our side
Still, we always fight against it
Are we worthy of the efforts?
Do the ends justify the means?
What is the price to pay for a complete renewal?

Chorus 2
We always want to be young
(This won't be easy)
To be fresh and be full of life
(It will get ugly)
Time is never on our side
Still, we always fight against it
(Give the people what they want)
Are we worthy of the efforts?
(This won't be easy)
Do the ends justify the means?
(It will get ugly)
What is the price to pay for a complete renewal?
(We're the young and the restless)

One of The Many

Verse 1
Tied to a much larger group
But claiming a lesser status
The dominant force has relegated me to an inferior position
These confines are very restrictive across the land I inhabit
After all, these borders were created by someone else

Verse 2
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Habits are comforting
Giving away what's valuable
For something that's worthless
Deficits are constructed and disseminated like candy
It's no surprise that self-esteem is at an all-time low

Verse 3
I'm qualified to be the architect of my odyssey
There are no short-cuts or safe routes to take
But it's necessary to explore beyond the maze
That has tarnished bodies and spirits
I may not be successful in transforming my environment
After all, this struggle has always been eternal

Bridge 1
I've heard tales of abuse
Heard tales of torment
I've seen the look of disgust
Seen the look of utter contempt
Throughout seasons and generations nothing has changed
I acknowledge reality without accepting the way that things are

Bridge 2
I've experienced distress
Experienced dissatisfaction
I've known sorrow and pain
Known frustration and helplessness
Throughout seasons and generations nothing has changed
I acknowledge reality without accepting the way that things are

Bridge 3
I've longed for justice and peace of mind
Longed for contentment
I've acquired knowledge and sound advice
Acquired weight and skills
Throughout seasons and generations nothing has changed
I acknowledge reality without accepting the way that things are

Chorus
I'm one of the many who isn't complacent
I'm one of the many who speak out
Against the conditions to which I'm all too familiar with
Believing in obvious lies is what weak people do
Taking things at face value is reserved for the naive
I want to rise above my artificial birthright
