Bloodsport I 01:16
Is pigment a permit? Am I vermin? That blood I bleed, those breaths I take – are they worthless? Is DNA my destiny? An enemy what you see? A fight or flight adrenaline beckons me Your teeth flash white but so do your knuckles Who bleeds more in this constant struggle? Bloodsport Pleasantries or infantries? Justice or a hung jury? History repeats itself in cyclical redundancies Crosshairs as we cross the tracks Targets on their battered backs The silence as you witnessed that - deafening Your teeth flash white but so do your knuckles Who bleeds more in this constant struggle? Bloodsport Win or lose we bleed the same In this game we play It’s a bloodsport

Always under preying eyes Praying for a sign to strike Watching as I walk on knives You're poised to strike without an ounce of doubt Out for justice Out for blood Armed for battle Out to hunt Nirvana just a blink away A trophy for your display Am I human? Am I game? The end result is just the same A pardon from your paranoia paradise would be so nice Your happiness is a warm gun - it's a bloodsport Clutch your pistol Clutch your pearls Be the ruler of your world A one man army For peace and harmony A rifle remedy A shotgun serenity Bloodsport

Change moves so slow at the minimum pace But where is the place for me and my rage? A hunger consumes and diplomacy fades Now vengeance is what puts a smile on my face I’ll trade famine for feast Because starving for peace Has whittled me down to a paltry physique So why crave for peace And live life unfed When equality could be getting even instead? Change moves so slow at the minimum pace But where is the place for me and my rage? A hunger consumes and diplomacy fades Now vengeance is what puts a smile on my face Change at these speeds Is life on my knees Picking the scraps off the plates of elites So why crave for peace And live life unfed When equality could be getting even instead? A glutton for punishment An appetite for violence Watching you struggle. It’s my pleasure. A hedonistic conquest comes unto its end A satisfying supper

Find the vein Give me strength I've all to gain From bodies slain A cultural IV A skewered morality Always them - not me My favorite enemies A patriot's blood runs through my veins It may be vain But this green beret Suits me great and Seals their fates A cultural IV A twisted mentality Always them - not me My favorite industry Valor and Vanity and Greed - the war machine Round and round and round we go Get your tickets for the show Come and get your front row seat To witness the war machine The war machine brings us peace Freedom isn't free But life sure is cheap And liberty and justice turn a blind eye to the meek Turn magazines to limousines And human lives to wall street highs A heinous form of alchemy Our excess at their expense Mere happenstance, or consequence? Valor, Violence, Victory a soldier's fortune manifests Live to make a killing Kill to make a living Isn't the democracy we live in so fulfilling?

Divinity 04:16
DNA is my destiny Meritocracy is mythology DNA is my destiny and adversity is my currency DNA is my destiny Evolution ordained entropy DNA is my destiny There's no place for me From sea to shining sea I will bleed Blood red, skin black Bruised and battered from the whips they crack and lily white lies Blind us from the chalk lines Manifest Destiny Humanized equity Follow the lines On my palm You'll find a psalm that's solemn The stars align They're so divine Yet they define My confines I drew the blood That sliced the deck That chopped my neck and hung me dead I won't tempt fate.. They've found a place Just for me.. From sea to shining sea I will bleed Blood red, skin black Bruised and battered from the whips they crack and lily white lies blind us from the chalk lines Manifest Destiny Humanized equity Serendipity sowed this seed for me A petri dish determinance Robs me of my relevance It's my destiny I'll take control of my destiny Beat my chest Grab a gun Hurt somebody just for fun Smoke some dope and kill some time All on Uncle Sammy’s dime You'll say it's in my DNA You'll say that it's my destiny It's in this country's DNA The truth is you invented me.
