To those vultures that resolve to take your life away You'd better watch what they do because its not what they say Sporting new suits and ties to help deliver their lies But they've got no brains and no vertebrae With their hands in your pockets from cradle to grave They're robbing the futures of all they enslave They're mocking our rights, right in the home of the brave The pressures building up into a giant shock wave Ignoring moral and logical proven economical agendas of things to be done But if united we stand No longer under command Though the battle has not yet begun We just won Assaults on our freedoms, a barrage on our rights They're out-manned and they know it They do not want this fight They must think that we believe that we don't have a choice Every one that they silence thousands more raise their voice Thousands More! In this oppression of hope Data designed to confuse History is our witness We cannot lose Its our time, this is our time Its now!

Sick of living but unwilling to die I cant see his face but I can see through his eyes I'm mapping his marks and reading his lies Reliving the killings but no reasons why My hand keeps on writing like it knows it all The letters keep coming more bodies will fall Im trying to fathom the depths of his rage Until I decode this California's a cage Her life draining to an uncertain death Blood spurting and spilling all over her dress Someone will find her she wont die this time But I'll leave this message so they know that she's mine The puzzles the cyphers just fall into place I can see through his eyes but I cant see his face He left us these letters he enjoys the chase Faced with the clues he erased such a waste No quench for his thirst, our throats both run dry Your tears of hatred roll down from our eyes The feel of his pain, it runs through my soul There is no escape, hes lost all control Slashes and screams and bullets and blades Collecting my slaves for my kingdom of graves His hood done in black with a target in white Taking delight from their fear in the night So run if you must right into my trap All hope is crushed there's no turning back Dealing my pain its too much to bear Cant carry this burden and therefore I share Now I know. I am who you are I may go away but I'll never be far Because my fires not out its just burning low and where I'll strike next only I know I almost cant wait until my next attack I took 37 but they wont be the last I'll see you in Hell, and its been a blast So until next time, Signed...

Are you scared? Do you want to go home? ... or maybe play it off and just use the phone? Well, you made a decision, its too late to eject Now here it comes, what the f**k did you expect? I just cant be free until you get the f**k away from me and you are scared and cold just thinking what this night could hold and I have visited the land of pixies and the living dead and you just don't have a clue about what is in store for you Now either calm down or you can get the f**k out because I told you you had no idea what this was about and now your eyes start to widen and your ears start to ring so follow me and we'll go do our thing its just a ticket to open a door there is nothing logical here anymore I see what you see and I saw what you saw Nothing ever quite looked just like this before Are you scared? You'd best be.

There's only some days that my brain obeys it opens up and words tumble onto the page you cant force it out, my mind is like a maze it tries to engage in 15 different ways then after countless synaptic delays it retreats and it creeps back into its cage brain, obey! get back on track, and pick up some speed inhale some O2, because that's all it should need Its calls the shots and I just follow its lead Its ultimate goal I think is just to be freed. Brain, obey me! Try to control my mind, no matter what the cost but I fear what I'll find, I think it might be lost I struggle for control while all my thoughts explode The master of my mind, counter strike the overload I wont be left behind, defend my thoughts and pray My enemies are blind and I will seize the day This war cannot be lost, I will fight 'till I'm whole My hand will not be forced, (may) these actions be extolled.

What's wrong with these people today The shootings and stabbings and lootings they're grabbing more headlines everyday Just last night I watched I riot I seen the cops out on the street With their batons and shooting folks methodical and neat Decades of corpses in the gutters These towns are filled with Death How many years can this go on Until nobody's left Children born in smoke and fire broken glass and more barbed wire Ancient fights forged in their minds killing over holy shrines Stories worsen as they're told Lifeless shells of 5 year olds ...and they say that peace is so close but both sides don't know when They're gonna break the calm with another pipe bomb and start it all again When a punch in the face won't cut it then something's not quite right There's some serious s**t going on downtown when the fires start to light All full of hate and anger but cant remember why When hearts and minds are out for blood then someone's gonna die A woman begs for mercy it echos in the night Their eyes are stone, their hearts are cold They're out for blood tonight What's wrong with these people today The shootings and stabbings and lootings they're grabbing more headlines everyday Just last night I watched I riot I seen the crowd swarming the street Throwing rocks and shooting folks methodical and neat When a punch in the face won't cut it then something's not quite right There's some serious s**t going on downtown when the fires start to light All full of hate and anger but cant remember why When hearts and minds are out for blood then someone's gonna die A woman begs for mercy it echos in the night Their eyes are stone, their hearts are cold They're out for blood tonight

Regulate, enforce and implement my struggle Minority, priority, majority, it has to be me If Earth is our Hell, then our Heaven is Death No fight, no life Slapped for taking a breath Nothing. No thing. A thing is anything. Void is a thing, it has a word, a name A name is a word and a word describes either a thing or a concept A concept is also a thing because it has just been described But nothing, no thing, is absolutely no thing. No concept that can be described in any way words, sound, art Darkness is a thing, space is a thing, vacuum is a thing The absence of thing, truly no thing. The reason chi or true understanding of the world, the universe and oneself cannot be found is because its found in nothing. Nothing cannot be changed, explained, shaped or manipulated It can only be understood and only the individuals interpretation of or in the understanding of nothing will determine which path this understanding will take the individual. Let everything stop and this moment continue to exist Be careful, lest they cast out the Devil - they cast the best thing out of you Slapped for taking a breath Slapped for being Slapped for taking a breath

Its time to paint my portrait of madness use the human mind as my canvas I use mixed emotions as my paint Swirling red, love fear and hate I can now see what sanity was A spot forever fading with each stroke of my brush The human mind is endless but it cannot hold much I'm drawing madness, you must think I'm nuts Its time to paint my portrait of madness use the human mind as my canvas I use mixed emotions as my paint With this swirling red, love fear and hate My mouth dries out as I stare at the painting that I just put there Its so defined, every color's unique My eyes turn inside and my will becomes weak I cant understand my thoughts as I look The portrait grips my mind like a meat hook The world fades as the picture grows bright It smiles at me from some inner light Its time to paint my portrait of madness use the human mind as my canvas I use mixed emotions as my paint With this swirling red, love fear and hate Something clicks, now I cant wait For the end of that love, that fear, that hate.
