sing to me my muses
lost in the hot cyclops anarchy
possession
invention
blood, blood
spirits, spirits
sprits, spirits
calling, calling
where will these visions lead?
how far dare i go?
where will this song take me?
into the deep unknown
yeah
spirits, spirits
come, come

hope the prophets and the gods came prepared for this
so we dine on divine of the mind impaired
preaching werewolf prayers on a nightly flight
it's taken all we ate in the pale moonlight
feel the urge of the power surge connect us all
bringing kingdoms under siege with the words that i control
gotta be nice you got your blind success
only love can set me free from this patriotic quest
test me once and i secretly die alone
while a toy in the face in the faces of the hawk
walk in the wilderness of the mind
so i decide to die and leave a friend of mine behind

possession, invention
invite discovery
surrender to pleasures
lost in ecstasy
survive
i lie you are my enemy
you die for lies, slave to misery

bring in the battleground
laying wasted the competition
of connected intellects and the say the soul systems
i decree mutiny
it's revolution us against the patriarchy
disassemble the soul, full of knowledge untold
while i spin the webs of wisdom prophecies unfold
into tech mode to decipher the code
a babylon drives all to have a memory load
mental states decide for all races
urgency of rage in these grimmy little places
prepare for warfare
nothing but the knowledge of america's nightmare
yeah

possession, invention
invite discovery
surrender to pleasures
lost in ecstasy
survive
i lie you are my enemy
you die for lies, slave to misery

sometimes i sit and ask myself what have i become?
what have i become?
what... have i become?
what... have i become?
what... have i become?
what have i become?
something's taking over me
something's taking over me
something's taking over me
something's taking over me

you paint your face with the blood of weed
self sacrifice everyone you meet
scream at demons in my face
theres voices of the dead left here in my head
i survive, i'm alive
i render fever to watch you burn
kill your leaders to help you learn

. . .



eternal salvation suffers from invasion

say what you need to, save your soul
but don't fuck with me,
i'm loosin' control
i'm so tired of this, so sick of you
my tongue is battered and bruised from all these attitudes

teach me the magic of your sacred poems
conjuring a voice of signs and omens
prophecies got debris
the syllables and symbols breath
and as we climb, divine
to sacrifice our wounded minds
this awkward chance to seek, insanity
i can't save you, cause i hate me

the lord is my weapon
and i see him shoot pawns
woman is the devil
your god is a fraud
everyone you knew
everything you've ever done
suffer for your freedom
die by the law

the lord is my weapon
and i see him shoot pawns
woman is the devil
your god is a fraud
everyone you knew
everything you've ever done
suffer for your freedom
die by the law

say what you need to save your soul
but leave your religion at the door
smokin all of chrismals weed
i'm sick of these weak anarchys
you see me as a place to make a bruise
but in my reality i'm a slate of the muse
fuck these hypocrites, and together will fight

tyrannist swears, as quick as your knife

the lord is my weapon
and i see him shoot pawns
woman is the devil
your god is a fraud
everyone you knew
everything you've ever done
suffer for your freedom
die by the law

all you sinners
blasphemers
burn in the pit
burn
burn
burn

the lord is my weapon
and i see him shoot pawns
woman is the devil
your god is a fraud
everyone you knew
everything you've ever done
suffer for your freedom
die by the law

save me
save me
save me
save me
save me
save me

. . .



the enemy of the world,
our greatest defeat,
slave warfare,
our wings are almost dry and free,
absorbing violence [pain],
punishing pain,
poetry is the perfume of the soul [no fear, no god, alternate staces take me
places, the world, enemy],
nightmare babies, fire gods,
speaking of dream time serpants,
and walking with the elder dead,
fear me mortal [fear me],
fear me,
feed my disease,
feed my disease [the taste of fear in the seventh phase of the disease],
and in tiny little houses,
on tiny little streets [everythings normal, everythings not ok, it's normal],
voices raise and[as long as you're under my roof you will respect me],
fear is alive [as long as you're under my roof you will respect me],
and laughter,
he's knows tolerance [don't forget me],
she only knows lonliness [not you, not you, not you],
and in my blackness of sleep,
savages dance and scream,
but only truth is suffering,
bleeding like embryos [but only truth is suffering],
starving with dreams [life, blood],
you, single cell are commerse,
whoa, what happened to you last night?
you've given up without a fight,
and learned the words thay say receit,
you killed the flower that blossoms in the night,
smothered and crushed,
rage gives way to a little giggle and sudden blush,
and in my molecules, the vast eternity of invention [can you smell my fever
mama? can you smell my poor veins?],
infected with the good disease,
intellect, rebellion,
finding the need in every single one,
...of you,
what's a matter you don't like it when i touch you?
come here,
don't run, don't run,
hand me babies and nightmare gods,
i will shed my skin [but i can't get his sins off of me],
he prefers pain to pretty,
death to daughter,
to the shivering creature that lay beneath him,
i will not be want you want me to be,
i will not be want you want me to be [nothings changed, go away, go away],
people are evil and girls hate each other,
oh great devour of the dead,
i will know my demons names,
i will conquer them,
i will rise [rise],
i will...fight,
why?
coming...
salvation...
this is my holy war,
we come to you like desert warriors,
fresh from the cool dew of night,
in a sea of odour,
in a tapestry of pain,
absorbing violence,
feasting on hopelessness,
expand your mind,
expand your mind,
this is our time to shine [our time to shine, our time for justice],
and out of the ashes,
only the holy will rise,
sweet paper messiah [die],
sweet paper messiah,
how i sacrifice you, i sacrifice you [save me, save me],
dear, sweet paper messiah [save me, save me, save me, save me],
my offering,
my suffering [i speak to you on behalf of all of mankind],
whatever you need,
what...ever you need,
whatever you...
whatever you need,
unite,
messiah,

. . .



lying naked alone
on the bathroom floor
i keep waiting?
pain, fear
no more

and i can't get his sins off me

she wants to be a messiah
without the crucifixion
she wants to fuck delilah
without samson's intervention
she wants to be a deity and rule us everyday
and punish the wars of your rich gods and the martyrs that they slay
she wants to see galaxies
all the planets and the stars
she wants to be a fallen angel without the swollen scars

unclean
unclean
fillthee
and i can't get his sins off me
unclean
unclean
fillthee
and i can't get his sins off me

she wants to free the kingdom
be worshipped by the earth
she wants to be the prophet
for ten times what shes worth
she wants to break free from eve
and leave them all behind
to be born again in the thrill of sin
and revive her dying mind
she wants to stand
raid the king
slaughter the guards and kill everything
burn the world and let her soul be free
light the noble of eternity

unclean
unclean
fillthee
and i can't get his sins off me
unclean
unclean
fillthee
and i can't get his sins off me

don't touch me there
oh, i know you're scared
kill the need in me
and i remain

unclean
unclean
fillthee
and i can't get his sins off me
unclean
unclean
fillthee
and i can't get his sins off me

why should i be afraid?
it's not the first time i've tasted pain
why should I be afraid?
it's not the first time i've tasted pain

To all u weak mcs.... all u hardcore wannabe'z
if u step into the ring be prepared to swing!! ...(WHUT??)

me be the best to impress with dictation?
too far fetched? beyond your imagination?
i'll rise to the occasion launching an invasion
-- enterin your mental like a viral infestation
wurdz be abrasive -- joints eye be lacin
sacrificin mics to ignite the celebration
its just amazing, poetically we blazing
xen & otep -- a volatile combination
(time to) -- DESTROY LIKE REVELATIONS!
styles be liquid and flow like irrigation
-- so make the preparation.........
defeat is bittersweet, its all u'll be tastin
sounding battle stations - my war face in place
total annihilation - your existence has been erased
its the renaissance - time to switch up and change
the path the paragraphs infiltrate your brain

[chorus]
T.R.I.C.

risin from the ashes to lead the wretched masses
back to the sufi shack - defyin all the fascists
wurdz burn with passion -- mentally enhancin
i'm david to goliath or delilah to your samson
kickin ass like cassius -- spreadin rhymes like rashes
the satellites in flight - how long before it crashes
falling like avalanches - crumbled and crushed
my wild womyn get to sinning -- know the power of us
i'm callin your bluff -- is it freedom or death?
we're gettin it on in Babylon - chokin on gods breath
the infinite connects true soldiers alive
the tribe will survive when armageddon arrives

[chorus]

the revolution is coming
TAKE NO PRISONERS
the revolution is coming
COWARDS BEWARE.............FUCK!

-- my war serpents rattle when its time to battle (mental midgets)
eye got a fist full of shit for u flies to feast
u lost control of your soul cuz your minds deceased
unfulfilled satisfactions & chemical reactions
my fate there's no escape -- life itself is the assassin
eye'm blastin -- the worlds in ashes -- from the invasion
--- EVERY WORD'S ANNIHILATION!!

COME ON!!

[chorus]
