Keys To The Kingdom

[Chester:]
No Control! No Surprise!
throw the Keys To The Kingdom down that hole in my eye
I'm my own casualty! I f*ck up everything I see, fighting in futility!

[Mike:]
It's our Final War
Tell me what's worth fighting for
When we know there's nothing more
Take the hand or fist
just to sell ourselves for this
The path we least resist

[Chester Screams]

[Chester:]
No Control! No Surprise!
throw the Keys To The Kingdom down that hole in my eye
I'm my own casualty! I f*ck up everything I see, fighting in futility!

[Mike:]
Uh, I give you what you came for
This is not the same though
Got a different method
But I still can bring the pain so
Not all give the same flow
I got daddy's saying low
I ain't shock and get you
Never really in my range, though
Somehow they ain't grow
High five, bango
All primetime
Mama let the bass bang low
All you f*cking lames go
naming out my name though
Careful what you shoot for, cause you might hit what you aim for
(Careful what you shoot for, cause you might hit what you aim for)

[Chester:]
No control! No surprise!
throw the Keys To The Kingdom down the hole in my eye
I'm my own casualty! I f*ck up everything I see, fighting in futility

[Instrumental Break]

[Chester:]
No control! No surprise!
throw the Keys To The Kingdom down the hole in my eye
I'm my own casualty! I f*ck up everything I see, fighting in futility
[x2]

[Kid:]
I'm not allowed to say certain things Aahhhh!!

[Mike:]
Try and do....try and do the other thing

All For Nothing

Yeah
Uh
So whatcha waiting for?
Anticipating more
Why you debate what it can take to instigate a war?
Yeah I've been hating on the time I wasn't hated for
There's nothing they can f*cking say they didn't say before
But you could never see it, your battle's not mine
Wanna skate and play it safe but this is take a shot time
You're waiting for a purpose, I already got mine
While you tell me step to it like 1,2,3,4!

And if I do what you demand.
You say
You'll let me understand.
You say
You're gonna hold me to your word
And if I sell myself away.
You say
I"ll have no debt to pay.
You say
I'm gonna get what I deserve
Woah

You word
Obey
My debt
Repaid
Our trust
Betrayed
All for nothing
All for nothing

Came back, there's no other way to say it
So let me break this f*cker down for ya
I really don't know ya
You're talk, but let me show you where to put your paranoia
Your're joking I don't have a half a sucker bone to throw yah
I'm disgusted wonder what's gonna make you tuck your tail below ya
And no I'm not your soldier, I'm not taking any orders
I'm a five star general infantry controller, need a lesson, let me show you.
Have you checking your composure while I make you step to it like 1,2,3,4!

And if I do what you demand.
You say
You'll let me understand.
You say
You're gonna hold me to your word
And if I sell myself away.
You say
I"ll have no debt to pay.
You say
I'm gonna get what I deserve
Woah

And if I do what you demand.
You'll let me understand.

You word
Obey
My debt
Repaid
Our trust
Betrayed
All for nothing
All for nothing

All for nothing
All for nothing
Oh oh oh oh

Guilty All The Same

Tell us all again
What you think we should be
What the answers are
What it is we can't see
Tell us all again
How to do what you say
How to fall in line
How there's no other way
But oh, we all know

You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame

You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame

You're guilty all the same

Show us all again
That our hands are unclean
That we're unprepared
That you have what we need
Show us all again
'Cause we cannot be saved
'Cause the end is near
Now there's no other way
And oh, you will know

You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame

You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame

There's no one else to blame
Guilty all the same

Guilty all the same
You're guilty all the same

[Rakim]
Yeah, you already know what it is
Can y'all explain what kind of land is this when a man has plans of being rich
But the bosses plans is wealthy?
Dirty money scheme, a clean split is nonsense
It's insane
Even corporate hands is filthy
They talk team and take the paper route
All they think about is bank accounts, assets and realty
At anybody's expense,
No shame with a clear conscience
No regrets and guilt free,
They claim that ain't the way that they built me
The smoke screen before the flame
Knowing as soon as the dough or the deal peak
They say it's time for things to change
Re-arrange like good product re-built cheap
Anything if it's more to gain
Drained, manipulated like artists, it's real deep
Until no more remains, but I'm still me
Like authentic hip-hop and rock,
'Til pop and radio and record companies killed me
Try to force me to stray and obey
And got the gall to say how real can real be
You feel me, we'll see that green could be to blame
Or greedy for the fame,
TV or a name
The media, the game,
To me you're all the same
You're guilty

You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame

You're guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there's no one else to blame
There's no one else to blame

Guilty all the same
Guilty all the same
Guilty all the same

War

One, two, one, two, three, four!

There's no peace
Only war
Victory decides who's wrong or right
It will not cease
Only grow
You better be prepared to fight!

And it will not apologize
For laying down your life

War

There's no pain
It will spare
Death has become your only right
And once you're lost
In your despair
Forever black, eternal light

And it will not apologize
For laying down your life

War
Destroyer

War
Destroyer

It needs no side to justify
Laying down your life

War
Destroyer

War

Wastelands

This is war with no weapons,
Marching with no stepping,
Murder with no killing,
illing every direction.
First, no sequel, do the math
No equal
A John with no Yoko
More power, less people
And yeah I'm not afraid of that
Print in your paperback
Every rap is made in fact
To act as a delayed attack
Every phrase a razor blade
And save it till they play it back
Slay 'em leave 'em laying on the pavement
Bang
Fade to black

In the wastelands of today,
When there's nothing left to lose,
And and there's nothing more to take,
But you force yourself to choose,
In the wastelands of today,
When tomorrow disappears
When the future slips away,
And your hope turns into fear,
In the wastelands of today

Roll credits, forget it,
The show's done,
They're talking for just talking,
Meaning they got none,
None of you come proper,
They talk like a shotgun,
But how many of you got bred with integrity,
Not one
So no, I'm not afraid to see you suckers hold a blade to me,
Ain't no way to shake the ground I built before you came to be,
Take it how you take it, I'm the opposite of vacancy,
And this not negotiation, I can hear you,
Wait and see...

In the wastelands of today,
When there's nothing left to lose,
And and there's nothing more to take,
But you force yourself to choose,
In the wastelands of today,
When tomorrow disappears
When the future slips away,
And your hope turns into fear,
And your hope turns into fear,

In the wastelands of today!

In the wastelands of today,
When there's nothing left to lose,
And and there's nothing more to take,
But you force yourself to choose,
In the wastelands of today,
When tomorrow disappears
When the future slips away,
And your hope turns into fear,
And your hope turns into fear,
In the wastelands of today!

In the wastelands of today!
In the wastelands of today!

Until It's Gone

A fire needs a space to burn
A breath to build a glow
I've heard it said a thousand times
But now I know

That you don't know what you've got
Oh you don't know what you've got
No you don't know what you've got
Until it's gone
Until it's gone
Until it's gone

I thought I kept you safe and sound
I thought I made you strong
But something made me realize
That I was wrong

'Cause finding what you got sometimes
Means finding it alone
And I can finally see your light
When I let go

'Cause you don't know what you've got
Until it's gone
Until it's gone
Until it's gone

Until it's gone
Until it's gone
Until it's gone
Until it's gone
Until it's gone

'Cause you don't know what you've got
Oh you don't know what you've got
No you don't know what you've got
It's your battle to be fought
No you don't know what you've got
'Til it's gone
'Til it's gone
'Til it's gone

Rebellion

I've seen the blood
I've seen the broken
The lost and the sights unseen
I want a flood
I want an ocean
To wash my confusion clean

I can't resolve this empty story
I can't repair the damage done

We are the fortunate ones
Who've never faced oppression's gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of rebellion

We act it out
We wear the colors
Confined by the things we own
We're not without
We're like each other
Pretending we're here alone

And far away, they burn their buildings
Right in the face of the damage done

We are the fortunate ones
Who've never faced oppression's gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of rebellion

Rebellion, rebellion
We lost before the start
Rebellion, rebellion
One by one we fall apart

We are the fortunate ones
Who've never faced oppression's gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of imitations of...
We are the fortunate ones
Who've never faced oppression's gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of rebellion

Mark The Graves

There's a fragile game we play
With the ghosts of yesterday
If we can't let go, we'll never say goodbye

No trace of what remains
No stones to mark the graves
Only memories we thought we could deny

There was so much more to lose
Than the pain I put you through
In my carelessness I left you in the dark

And the blood may wash away
But the scars will never fade
At least I know somehow I made a mark

In the dark
In the light
Nothing left
Nothing right

In the dark
In the light
Nothing left
Nothing right

In the dark
In the light
Nothing left
Nothing right

In the dark
In the light
Nothing left
Nothing right

Final Masquerade

Tearing me apart with words you wouldn't say,
Suddenly tomorrow's a moment washed away.
'Cause I don't have a reason, and you don't have the time,
We both keep on waiting for something we won't find.

Light on the horizon was brighter yesterday,
Shadows floating over, scars began to fade.
We said it was forever but then it slipped away,
Standing at the end of the final masquerade.

Final masquerade!

All I ever wanted, the secrets that you keep,
All you've ever wanted, the truth I couldn't speak.
'Cause I can't see forgiveness, and you can't see the crime,
And we both keep on waiting for what we left behind.

Light on the horizon was brighter yesterday,
Shadows floating over, scars began to fade.
We said it was forever but then it slipped away,
Standing at the end of the final masquerade.

Final masquerade!
Final masquerade!
Standing at the end of the final masquerade!

The light on the horizon was brighter yesterday,
Shadows floating over, scars begin to fade.
We said it was forever but then it slipped away,
Standing at the end of the final masquerade.

Standing at the end of the final masquerade!
Standing at the end of the final masquerade!
Final masquerade!

A Line In The Sand

Today, we stood on the wall,
We laughed at the sun, we laughed at the guns,
We laughed at it all
And when they, they told us to go,
We paid them no mind, like every other time,
But little did we know...

Today, I look for a sign,
With flames in my hands,
A line in the sand,
Between yours and mine,
And it came, like fire from below,
Your greed led the call,
My flag had to fall,
But little did you know

Another day, your truth will come,
You're gonna pay for what you,
Pay for what you've done,
You'll get what's yours,
And face your fraud,
You're gonna give me back what's mine
Give me back what's mine!

I ain't never been a coward,
I ain't never seen blood,
You had sold me an ocean,
And I was lost in the flood,
We were counting on a leader,
We were driven by need,
Couldn't take temptation,
And we were blinded by greed,
You were steady as a sniper,
We were waiting on a wire,
So we never saw it coming,
When you ran from the fire,
You can try intimidation,
Or you can try to ignore,
But when the time comes calling,
Yeah! You are gonna get yours!

Another day, your truth will come,
You're gonna pay for what you,
Pay for what you've done,
You'll get what's yours,
And face your fraud,
You're gonna give me back what's mine
Give me back what's mine!

And so today, your truth has come,
You're gonna pay for what you,
Pay for what you've done,
You'll get what's yours,
You're out of time,
And you will give me back what's mine
Give me, give me back what's mine!

Give me, give me back what's mine!
What's mine, give me, give me back what's mine!
What's mine!
What's mine!
Give me back what's mine!

Today, we stood on the wall,
We laughed at the sun, we laughed at the guns,
We laughed at it all
And when they, they told us to go,
We paid them no mind, like every other time,
But little did we know...
