Sculptors 05:07
-Sculptors They carved images; reflections, corrupted for us to ingest. They killed in his name, slaying opposition, expanding their reign. They had permission from him, the most holy, for all their crusades. Power through faith; greed laced. Blood bathed, gold craved paid by fools. Greed laced faith; christened deaths. Sheep will pray ‘till this day.
-Thieving Swine So cynic, taking advantage of us. Admit it, don’t try to justify it. How you managed to bend the law? Hypocrite, you said you’d take care of us. Here I stand witnessing your evil plot. You know me. I am weak. Show that grin. Got no backbone. Lack word, spit oaths. It’s my fault you’re crooked; I’ve done it myself. Indulging in mischief we both get our ways.
Atlas 04:05
-Atlas Jawline broken, sweating, gasping for air, losing focus, throwing fists to nowhere. Judge has spoken. No use fighting here. Cannot withhold another fall in me. Cannot give in. Pride has spoken again. Restrained my limbs, take breath brake the chain. Lift this curse, fade away. Will bring hell, no delay. Sorrow filled, burst in hate. Overcome, change your fate.
Backfire 03:55
-Backfire Show some conscious thinking. Breathe some guilt free phrasing. Feel absolved from race blame. Live your bullshit trend reign. Blindfold worn tight. Halo worn bright.
-Sledgehammers I made a deal. I sold my bones. Held to the terms, got slaved in turn. Why won’t you please me? You’re so deceiving. Make my life right through broken back. Make the sun black, our futures bright. Why can’t I leave you? Promise I see in you. Bathe in money, bathe in gold. Promising that you’re right, you give me pace of mind.
Dopamine 04:52
-Dopamine Whisper my name, my thoughts you’ll claim. Logic refrained, my spine ripped, slain. Withdrawal I chose, this searing pain. Bending, almost fall back again.
