What Do You Want The sun is coming up and you wake up in the morning... And you start another day but the storm clouds are swirling. And you don't want to go out, don't want to deal with it. You think you got no choice it feels like your stuck in it. Blame the haters, players, cops, and teachers Blame the complainers - you won't stop preaching. There's no secret to life - you gotta want it If you don't decide then the world make you honest Are you living how you want? What do you want? Are you living where you want? What do you want? Do you live with who you want? What do you want? Will you live the way you want? What do you want? What do you want? It's a nightmare - a blessing - a curse and a lesson You realized your choice there's no point in confession. you stop pointing all the fingers you stop making accusations. cleaning up your own life and you see that is the mission. now you walk on head tall not afraid to face it all. your back against the wall and you know you'll never fall. it's all you wanted, life's your invention. and now you have it cause you answered simple questions.

Flashing lights they keep me up at night Yellow tape is everywhere No voice - no rights - No leaders are wise No child is safe - A country at waste More guns - more war For you to die for We got a system failure, what kind of system? We got a system failure, what kind of system? failure There's no chance to open up your eyes There's no chance to make it right We need a plague. Reset the stage No change without a loss of life. More guns - more war For which we die for. We got a system failure, what kind of system?

Breakdown 02:13
Breakdown Just a shell of himself inside a uniform shell shocked, half cocked, and war torn Breakdown Soldier through another breakdown PTSD and a purple heart Now he's a greeter at the gates of Wal-Mart. Breakdown Soldier through another breakdown

Verdicts 01:45
Verdicts No jury called - Behind the wall Decisions made - Master to slave No ballot cast - No show of hands No judge, sentence, or criminal defense. You are decided guilty, never innocent. No rights, appeals, no jury seals the deal. The passing of the verdict, like spinning of the wheel. Guilty.

World is blurred - all sight all sound. Lines are crossed - methods flawed No chance for clarity, hope, salvation� No one weeps for the free. We're living in a world of global distortion. Take a look outside and you'll see the blurry lines. It�s a catch 22 when you try to get your bearings. It�s a fruitless fight you choose. We're living in a world of global distortion. Take a look outside and you'll see the blurry lives. Feel like I'm going blind. Feel like the deaf are my kind. We're living in a world of global distortion.

Bombs for Children Today's weaponry breeds, tomorrow's children die. Building bombs for the children. Enough WMD to kill ten times our lives. Building bombs for the children. Megalomania Euthanize Building bombs for the children. As building blocks for the children, Building bombs so the children die.

No Peace 02:33
No Peace It's an endless cycle to nowhere, that no one's gonna survive. Living so oppressed, so lost, so lonely. Fear state of mind. No Peace comes without a cost. And for all our liberation I fear that hope might be lost. But I won't stop fighting. Incarcerate one third of your people, And half of them will never get out. A dozen oil wars since 1990. World full of doubt. No Peace comes without a cost. And for all our liberation I fear that hope might be lost. But I won't stop fighting.

Entitlement 03:51
Narcissistic flaw. You're a cannibal. You're what is wrong with the world. Life's a circumstance, A coincidence. Likely an accident� You're entitlement. You live your life stuck in fear Of a clock maker or a puppeteer. The truth's not shining from above. It's not a burning bush. It's not a show of love. You narcissistic flaw. You're a cannibal. You're what is wrong with the world. Life's a circumstance, A coincidence. Likely an accident� This is entitlement. Entitlement. And you don't wanna understand nothing, But you demand that the plan's gotta mean something. Life's a circumstance, A coincidence. Likely an accident� It's your entitlement. And it's not called kismet. Not serendipitous It's just an accident.. Turned to entitlement.

Accountability I'm wondering what's been going on? It does seem like I've been gone that long. You got two choices you can make� You can step it up, or be another fake. And we want accountability For all the shit you do and the shit you say. I can see through your lies. I'm not sure what is happening to you But I gotta be honest, your real color is showing through Because we want accountability. You got me closer to hostility. We will break down your walls. No one is gonna trust you once we're done. No one will believe that you weren't wrong. You spent your life building a house of lies, Sucking right from wrong. We will break down your walls. We want accountability Give me accountability.

Burn It Down 05:02
Burn it Down I got lost waiting on the future... The only day I'm living is now. Smash the kingdom with an iron fist We gotta make our swords from plows. Only live for today, not forever. And take all you can get. The rich are shitting on the working class. It's a cycle that never ends. We're standing up. And we'll burn it down. One for commons. Two for the saints. Three for the children, open eyes, lie awake. Four for the leaders. Five for the grunts. Six for the fallen. We will create, once we burn it down. The whole world is watching Let's burn it down.

No More 02:04
Too many years of my life have been given to another self. I'll take whats mine take my time my will back from you and leave this hell. No more. Day after day I gave you all, gave you everything... look where I stand. This is the line flag is raised make my boundary. I'll take command. No more.

Pacifist 02:38
No lives matter, so choose a cause You wait with patience & watch while time is lost Non violent protest is oxymoron we're passed the point of waiting for our goals you see me & you do nothing you do nothing you roll your eyes and you do nothing you do nothing you just sit back and do nothing you do nothing a pacifist in violent times has done nothing there's time and place for what you preach but let's rewind and watch the history repeat from our cradle, til were slaves i will fight while you are standing in your grave a pacifist in violent times you're a "do nothing"
