Track Name: Fentanyl Crisis
WHOSE BLOOD? WHOSE HANDS??

/NO MATTER WHO I AM
WHAT I DO OR WHAT I SAY
AS LONG AS I CAN PAY
YOU CAN COUNT YOUR CASH & WALK AWAY
//YOUR CONSCIENCE IS CLEAR
BUT YOU CAN'T SEE THE VIEW FROM HERE
4 MORE PEOPLE DIED TODAY
& YOU JUST WANT TO WALK AWAY

(100'S DEAD ON THE DTES
FROM DR.DEATH'S LAST BATCH
SOME SAY LIVING WELL IS THE BEST REVENGE
BUT OBLIVION'S WORTH TAKING THE CHANCE)

///CORPSE IN YOUR ARMS
IT COULD BE ME
CARRY ME HOME
WITH YOUR PTSD
Track Name: Terminal Homebody (In Absentia)
FEELING LIKE I ALWAYS HIDE FEELING LIKE YOU NEVER SEEK
I'VE BEEN DEAD FOR WEEKS & I CAN'T GET NO SLEEP
WE NO LONGER SEEM TO CROSS PATHS
HAVEN'T SEEN YOU SINCE LAST FALL
BUT I SWEAR I HEARD YOU LAUGH
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WALL
.. OUT TO THE VOID I CALL

IT'S MEMORIES THAT THE SENSES DREAD
NO LONGER ABLE TO MAKE AMENDS
CHANCES TAXED AS EACH DAY ENDS
TALKING TO THE DEAD
I'M LOCKED UP IN MY HEAD
DROVE OUT ALL MY REAL FRIENDS

PLAGUING ME W/SHAME
TO PLAY THIS PETTY GAME
TRIED TO SHIFT THE BLAME
& I SPLIT APART MY BRAIN

BASKING IN THE PAIN
MASKING IT TO MAINTAIN
BROKE A MIRROR DOWN INTO SAND
MY 2ND FACE IS SIFTING THROUGH MY HANDS

YOUR FUCKED UP MUG SMACKS OF BAD VIBES
I'M NOT QUITE SURE WHAT TO DO W/YOU
IT'S ALL THESE DRUGS IN DESPERATE TIMES
I'D HIDE FOR WEEKS JUST TO SNUFF OUT THE TRUTH
THERE'S PARTS OF US NO ONE FORGETS
SECRETS, PROMISES, & DEBTS
I'LL TUNE INTO MY FAVORITE LIES
& CALL IT PARADISE
JUDGEMENT WILL COME SOON
GAGGED MOUTH
& GOUGED EYES
I'M SHROUDED IN WHITE LIGHT
ADORNED IN SEVERED TIES
Track Name: Rock, Powder, Down Syndrome
life is cold
the world is cold
ppl is cold
killin & stealin is cold
ppl's hearts minds souls & thoughts
are cold

I'LL CHEW THE CUD UNTIL MY TEETH FALL OUT
TAINT MY BLOOD W/THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT
BUT I KNOW I'M PLAYING RUSSIAN ROULETTE
OD'd LAST WEEK & IT'S TIME TO PLACE ONE MORE BET
NO FORGIVING THE THINGS I'VE DONE
LIVING W/A BAD CASE OF ROCK, POWDER, DOWN SYNDROME

THE LORD WON'T FORGIVE
THE LORD WON'T FORGIVE
THE LORD WON'T FORGIVE
WHAT A SYRINGE MIGHT

ESCAPED FROM THE PSYCH WARD
NOW I'M A CAPTIVE OF THE NIGHT
& I WON'T LIVE TO SEE DAYLIGHT

NEED CHEMICAL ENDURANCE
A LITTLE INSANITY INSURANCE
TO MAINTAIN MY ROCK, POWDER, SYNDROME
Track Name: s.k.i.d.
FORCED US FROM OUR HOMES
DROVE US FROM THE STREETS
& SHELTERS ALWAYS HAVE A SHORTAGE OF BEDS
FOR STREET KIDS IN DISTRESS

IT JUST KICKED IN NOW
I KNOW I WILL NOT SURVIVE
SOULS BEEN STRIPPED BARE, & I SEE NOTHING THERE
SO WHAT IS IT THAT'S KEEPING ME ALIVE?
IN THE BACKROOMS OF SECRET SPACES
YOUR SHADOW ESCAPES YOU
THEIR EYES HAVE ERASED YOU
MORALLY BANKRUPTING YOUR CHARITY CASES

I'LL BE A SKELETON FOR YOU
SHED MY SKIN
DESTROY ALL I'VE BEEN
FOR YOU
CAUSE I KNOW THE WORLD SPINS FOR YOU
TO TAKE ME ON A RIDE

HUMAN TRAFFIC ENDLESSLY COLLIDING
& ALL WORTH DENIED
A COLD DEAD WORLD FOR EVIL TO CONFIDE IN

BLOOD ON ALL MY SLEEVES
I'M THE THINNING OUT AMONGST THIEVES
SOMETHING IN THE EYES THEY HIDE
THAT BRING BACK MEMORIES
MY MOTHERS FILTHY KNEES
MY OLD MANS DRUNKEN BREATH
A LOCKED ROOM TO CHOKE THE BREEZE
DESTROYED THE KEYS SO FALSE HOPES I DON'T GET

I CAN HANDLE THE PAIN
CAUSE IT AIN'T SO BAD
IF ONLY IT WAS ALL I EVER HAD

TO GET THROUGH
TO YOU

FORCED US FROM OUR HOMES
DROVE US FROM THE STREETS
HOW QUICKLY THIS CITY FORGETS
STREET KIDS IN DISTRESS
Track Name: I Function All The Time
I COME UNDONE JUST TO UNWIND
BUT I FUNCTION ALL THE TIME
ENOUGH STRESS TO MESS YOUR MINDBUT I FUNCTION ALLHETIME
MY MORTAL COIL FEELS LIKE A BIND
BUT
I
FUNKCHIN ALL DA TIME
Track Name: The Pining Lassitude Of My Palid Reflection
(YOUR LIFE IS YOUR LIFE...)

(WHAT MEMORIES OF ME HAVE YOU EVEN KEPT?
I'VE BEEN DEAD A WEEK
HAVEN'T EVEN SLEPT)

FOR 2 THIS CAGE WAS BUILT BUT THERE'S TRACES OF JUST 1
AT A RIPE AGE FOR GUILT I FACE THE THINGS I'VE DONE
VICTIM OF REALITY, CHILD OF THE MYTH
BARELY RECOGNIZE THE MEMORIES THAT I'M LEFT WITH
YOU WERE BORN & RAISED
I WAS TORN FROM & HAZED
MY MISTAKES WERE PRAISED IN HOPES THAT IT WAS JUST A PHASE
I'D SLAUGHTER ALL MY KIN
IF THEY WEREN'T BURIED SO DEEP
I'VE BEEN DEAD FOR WEEKS
& I CAN'T GET NO SLEEP

THINK OF ALL THE GOOD TIMES WE HAD
NAKED, PARANOID IN ALL THOSE DARK BASEMENTS
I BOUGHT DOPE OFF YOUR DAD
NOW HE'S MY ONLY FRIEND AS I DESCEND INTO TOTAL DEPRIVATION
& I GET STONED IN MY OLD MAN'S TOMB
NOSTALGIA HITS HARD AT NOON
FOR I WILL BE W/YOU
AGAIN SOON

SUDDENLY I WAKE UP ON THE ASS END OF ALL THESE YEARS
SICK OF BEING THE FRIEND THAT ALWAYS DISAPPEARS
CAUSE I NO LONGER LOOK BACK IN HORROR, BUT W/KEEN EYES
BUT I CAN'T MOVE FORWARD W/O SUPPORT FROM BOTH SIDES
Track Name: LynxRiverBoyz // Sister Simone
ALL THE WOOD I CUT I GIVE HER
SO SHE WON'T HVE TO CROSS THE RIVER
& LOSE HER CHILD TO THE BOOTLEGGERS WRATH

WHEN THEY START TO BUILD THE ROAD
& THE WHITE MAN STARTS TO UNLOAD
WILL WE LED AWAY FROM OUR TRUE PATH?

LYNXRIVERBOYZ

HAVEN'T BEEN BACK SINCE THEY CAME FOR ME
I NO LONGER RECOGNIZE MY FAMILY
BUT I WILL STILL ALWAYS BE
ONE OF THOSE LYNXRIVERBOYZ
Track Name: Pleasin' Jesus
THEY SNATCHED MY MOM AT BIRTH
DETACHED HER FROM THE EARTH
SHE LEARNED WHAT IT WAS WORTH
& TRIED TO FILL THE HOLE INSIDE W/DIRT
I LOOK BACK IN DISBELIEF
THAT I WAS BORN, & TOOK ON ALL THAT GRIEF
OUR TIME TOGETHER WAS BRIEF
BUT I LOST MY YOUTH,
INHERITED THE TRUTH,
& NOW THERE'S NO RELIEF
I NEED A PUZZLE TO THIS PIECE
BUT MY FAMILIES DECEASED
& THE TRAUMA JUST WON'T CEASE
MAYBE THERE'S NOTHING LEFT BUT PLEASIN' JESUS
.. I KNOW THERE'S NOTHING LEFT BUT PLEASIN' JESUS
SO PRAISE HIM

WHAT DROVE HER MIND
TO SUICIDE?
ALL THOSE NIGHTS SHE CRIED
WHAT DID SHE HIDE INSIDE?

I JUST WISH THAT SHE COULD KNOW THAT I FORGIVE HER
FOR ALL THE BAD TIMES I DENIED
FOR SO LONG
Track Name: Haunted (Hereditary Hell)
I FEEL HAUNTED ALL THE TIME
BY SOMEONE I THOUGHT I HAD FORGOT
DON'T COME AROUND WHERE YOU'RE NOT WANTED
& LEAVE THE WAY YOU CAME

10 SPEED FOR 10 MILES I WAS SENT TO PICK UP BREAD
DRYHEAVING IN THE AISLES BEEN 2 DAYS SINCE I'VE BEEN FED
CASHIER NEVER SMILES SHE SEES THE BRUISES ON MY HEAD
I GOT NO PB&J FOR MY TOAST
CRACKSMOKE ON THE BREEZE I CUT THE TENSION W/A JOKE
I'M RUNNING FOR THE TREES WHERE I BURIED MOMS OLD COAT
I CRY TIL' I CAN'T BREATHE MY TINY HEART IS BROKE
I HEAD BACK HOME TO TUSSLE W/A GHOST

I STILL HAVE TROUBLE ADMITTING THAT YOUR DEAD
DOUBTS THAT CROWD THE HEAD
I SIT UP W/YOUR MEMORY
THAT MORNING CAME & FILLED ME UP W/DREAD
CAUSE I STAYED IN BED
THE DAY THEY SPREAD
YOUR ASHES OUT AT SEA

HEAD BACK HOME TO TUSSLE W/A GHOST
NOW IT'S THOSE CHROMOSOMES I HUSTLE FOR THE MOST
A HEREDITARY HELL THAT'S GONE UN DIAGNOSED
SELF MEDICATE & JUST LIKE MOM
I OVERDOSED

I STILL HAVE TROUBLE ADMITTING THAT YOUR DEAD
DOUBTS THAT CROWD THE HEAD
I SIT UP W/YOUR MEMORY
THAT MORNING CAME & FILLED ME UP W/DREAD
CAUSE I STAYED IN BED
THE DAY THEY SPREAD
YOUR ASHES OUT AT SEA
Track Name: Repeat Offender Blues ft. Fake DMX
I'M IN & OUT X2
OF ALL THESE GHETTO CLINICS
I'M IN & OUT X2
OF ALL THESE CHURCH BASEMENTS

I'M DONE PROWLING FOR STRANGE
NOW I'M HOWLING FROM MY CAGE
AFRAID I'LL NEVER CHANGE

GO THRU THE MOTIONS ONCE MORE
STUCK IN A CYCLE

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOULL HAVE ME IN UR HOME
AFTER ALL WE'VE BEEN THRU THIS YR
OUR LIVES ARE LIVED IN FITS OF DESPERATION
& I'M SO SORRY NOT MUCH ELSE SEEMS TO HAPPEN HERE
Track Name: Gateway Drug (Wack Like Daddy)
A GROWING BOY NEEDS VITAMINS
SO DON'T SLAP ME AROUND FOR CRYING OVER SPILT MILK
CAUSE I GOT A KNOWING GNAWING IN MY BONES
& MELTING SNOWCONES WON'T ALLEVIATE A YOUTH THAT'S QUICKLY WILTING

THE SHELVES DAD BUILT BEFORE HE DIED ARE TILTING
TIME TAKES ITS COURSE & SO DO I
WITH OR WITHOUT THE DAMAGE DEPOSIT
I NO LONGER WANT TO BE THE GHOST HAUNTING THIS BUILDING
SO I TOOK THE PORTAL IN MY DEAD DADS CLOSET

& I WOKE UP ON THE ASS END OF ADOLESCENCE
& I POKE UP ENOUGH TO SEND ME BACK TO THE ESSENCE
MY DEADBEAT DADDY SURE MADE AN IMPRESSION
CHILD INSIDE CRIES OUT FOR MY DAILY REGRESSION

MAYBE IT'S TIME TO GRADUATE FROM MY GATEWAY DRUG

CAST OFF THE CRUTCH
I'M GODLY ON A BINGE HIGH
YOU'RE COLD TO THE TOUCH
I NOD INTO THE 1/2 LIGHT
IT NEVER MEANT THAT MUCH
I NEVER EVEN SAID GOODBYE
AN EYE FOR AN EYE
I STARE FROM A STRANGE SIDE

THERE'S STILL TIME TO GRADUATE FROM MY GATEWAY DRUG
Track Name: Sentient Shitstain
CAN'T HOLD DOWN MY MEALS CAN'T HOLD DOWN A JOB
SO I HOLD THE HANDS OF THOSE I ROB
BUT COPS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO KNOW MY REAL NAME
I HIDE MY FEELINGS IN A STALL
INSIDE I'M STILL REELING FROM MY MOMS CALL
& I FEEL MYSELF PEELING FROM THE FRAME

I'M STILL HERE AFTER ALL I'VE BEEN THOUGH
& I STILL RESENT THE WORLD THAT I WAS BORN INTO
I'VE GOT NOWHERE TO MAKE MY WAY BACK TO
& I'VE LONG FORGOTTEN THOSE THAT I ONCE KNEW
SO WHERE AM I TO SEEK THE TRUTH?

WHO TURNED ON MY BRAIN?
HAVE I LEARNED TO HARNESS THE PAIN?
DO I DESERVE TO REMAIN?
CONSCIOUSNESS SO INHUMANE
I'M A SENTIENT SHITSTAIN..

I ONCE HAD MANY DOUBTS
ABOUT THE TRIALS OF PAST LIFETIMES
BUT NOW I AM DEVOUT
& I MUST PAY FOR THESE CRIMES

NO COMMON MAN CAN JUDGE
GO ON SIFTING THROUGH THE SLUDGE
TO SURVIVE IS TO HOLD ONTO A GRUDGE

.. HOW LONG MUST I HOLD ON?
& FACE THE NIGHT ALONE

HOW LONG?

MUST I HOLD ON?
Track Name: Survival // Wrath Of Progress
YOU TURN A WARRIOR ON HIMSELF
& THERE'S NO CHANCE OF SURVIVAL
HE COMES TO YOU WHEN HE NEEDS HELP
& YOU STRIKE HIM DOWN W/YOUR BIBLE

MY ROOTS ARE ALL PULLED UP
MY HERITAGE WILL DIE W/ME
ON THIS LAND THAT ONCE WAS OURS
WE'LL TAKE IT BACK

I WAS FORCED FROM PLACE TO PLACE
THEN FROM STREET TO STREET
ALWAYS FACE TO FACE
W/CLEAN FREAKS KEEPING THINGS NEAT
I'VE GOT NO TIME TO LEAVE A TRACE
I GOT MAKERS TO MEET
DEATH MERCHANT MUMBLES
THE EARTH BENEATH ME CRUMBLES
& I FEEL MYSELF START TO SINK INTO THE SCENERY
I HEAR ALL THAT'S DECEIVING YOU
I FEAR IT AS I'M WEAVING THROUGH
THE RUINS OF OUR HOMES
TRANSFORMED BY COLONIALIST MACHINERY
//
I AM WARNING YOU
I'VE SKIPPED OUT ON A LIFETIMES WORTH
OF LEARNING FROM MY MISTAKES
W/E IT TAKES TO FREE MY MIND
OF THE PLATITUDES & ATTITUDES OF THOSE THAT GAVE ME LIFE
PROUD SPIRIT RAPED
TAPED THE BIRTH OF TRAGEDY
SLAVE BABIES TEETHE
RAISED BY BLARING TV'S
THEY TOOK IT ALL AWAY
& THEY CAN'T GIVE IT BACK NOW
CAUSE IT'S ALL LOST
THEY PAVED OVER MY ANCESTORS GRAVES
SO THEY COULD HAVE A PARKING LOT
SO ALL COULD COME & SEE
THE WRATH OF PROGRESS
UPON

YOU & ME
Track Name: Lower Class Anomaly
BUD OSBORN:
YOU CAN CRIMINALIZE OUR PAIN
PULVERIZE OUR HUMAN RIGHTS
DEHUMANIZE US W/CHARITY
BUT WE ARE SOMEBODY

YOU WON'T BELIEVE YOU CAN FIT YOUR WHOLE LIFE
INTO A SHOPPING CART
NOT UNTIL YOU HAVE TO
I'VE LOST MUCH
I CANFIT IT ALL IN JUST A BROKEN HEART
BUT I CAN'T FIT IN W/YOU

DISASSOCIATION FROM BOTH SIDES

SPECTRAL KIN DRAW ME TOWARDS THE BLURRY YONDER
THAT'S WHERE I WANDER
WHAT YOU SEE IS A PARASITE
SO UNGRATEFUL FOR THE SCRAPS THAT PEOPLE OFFER
BUT YOU COULDN'T POSSIBLY FATHOM
THE SHEER WILL IT TAKES FOR ME TO LIVE
BECAUSE YOU'RE PUSHING YOUR OWN NARRATIVE
FROM YOUR SIDE

DISASSOCIATION FROM BOTH SIDES

A DYING LANGUAGE SCREAMING FROM A GALLERY WALL
BOUNTY OF ROBBED GRAVES ARE ON DISPLAY
YOU'RE A CONNOISSEUR OF EVERYBODY ELSES CULTURE
BUT YOU don't know WHAT IT'S LIKE TO HAVE IT TAKEN AWAY
TAKE IT AWAY

DISASSOCIATION FROM BOTH SIDES

MEET ME HALF WAY 'CROSS THE GREAT DIVIDE
SLOWLY APPROACHING FROM BOTH SIDES
