READY, GO! Do you hear that silence in the room That’s the calm before the storm The cause of the hair standing up on the back of your neck Finding the reason you were born It’s your reason to simply breath The point of life is what you make it No regrets or missed opportunities Can you feel the unrest The anger tightens in your chest Can’t just sit here silent Ready to unleash justice Don’t be the one who fuckin’ fakes it One second to the next and then you’re gone Actions speak louder than words Make them the ones you live your life on Stand up for what you believe You only live once and then you’re gone Make the life you live the one that you deserve Can you feel the unrest The anger tightens in your chest Can’t just sit here silent Ready to unleash justice Wear your scars, wear your scars with pride The excuses stacking up like bricks to build a wall Blocking out what’s out of the norm or so its fuckin’ called To be original and deep, compassionate and free Sounds like a fuckin’ person that I want to be But I strive to survive, to flourish and to thrive To work so damn hard and be proud of the life I’ve lived You only get this one chance so make the best of it The life you’ve lived, the impact you’ve made Live loud, and never fuckin’ quit!

STOOD UP FOR BRUNCH pt.2 You lied! You lied! You lied! You lied! You lied! You lied again…again The trust! The trust! The trust we had The trust never again….never again You steal You crush your own soul Traded in for drugs no future to behold The ones who love you they fade in the distance The fog of your next hit The haze of your matrix This world and lifestyle you’ve created for yourself Its all about you and nobody else It’s all about what others can do for you The damage you’ve caused or how you’ve squandered your youth But someday you’ll wake up only to realize you’ve got no life to live and no will to survive No one who’s got your back or pushing you forward in life No reason to go on or reason to love life..no reason to go on reason to love life Your soul is fading, your existence to be lost You’ve already lost everything and I’m fucking next You lie, you cheat, you steal from those you love You’ve whored yourself for drugs you don’t know the meaning of love You’ve burnt every bridge too bad to be rebuilt not that you ever cared but it’s me you truly hurt You’ve burnt every bridge too bad to be rebuilt not that you ever cared but it’s me you truly hurt But someday you’ll wake up only to realize you’ve got no life to live and no will to survive No one who’s got your back or pushing you forward in life No reason to go on or reason to love life..no reason to go on reason to love life You lied! You lied! You lied! You lied! You lied! You lied again…again The trust! The trust! The trust we had The trust never again….never again I’ve heard it once you’ve said it twice You lied to my face, I’ve been denied I’ve been abused by you before but now I’m much wiser than I was before again..

HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE Mirror mirror on the wall tell me all of my defaults Everyday you look in the mirror vision keeps on getting clearer Facelift, botox is that what you need to look like these models in these magazines Hair just right, clothes are in fashion, all you do is just imagine Perfect image of a lying mirage Scam of the century Aimed at insecurity You know you shouldn’t care what they think about your looks but everywhere you go its sight before mind in this Hollywood homicide Hollywood homicide Hollywood homicide Hollywood homicide As a women you’re expected to be sweet Nails done, hair curled, light on your feet Well I’m a woman too and hear me fucking roar I won’t let your idea of beauty define me anymore Perfect image of a lying mirage Scam of the century Aimed at insecurity You know you shouldn’t care what they think about your looks but everywhere you go its sight before mind in this Hollywood homicide Hollywood homicide Hollywood homicide Hollywood homicide This isn’t what I asked for I know were here for so much more It’s taken me stepping away from things to realize I want nothing changed I want to be the woman like never before seen I want to live my life with no boundaries To scream every word like it hurts to be weak The energy that flows through me will power the minds of thousands to think free!

WE ALL BLEED RED No matter what the color No matter what the sex We all bleed red We all bleed red No room in this world For prejudice We all bleed red We all bleed red Since the dawn of time we’ve been plagued with a disease One that keeps us crippled, the demise of humanity Racism, sexism its fascism all the same When will we clear this hurdle and finally end it’s reign (chorus is in Hindi) Koi bhi boli ho Kasa bhi rung Sabka khoon laal hai Sabka khoon laal hai Hum sub ek sai Jaisa bhi dhung Sabka khoon laal hai Sabka khoon laal hai When will these isms end the answer may be never But as long as we give a fuck it’s not such an endeavor One day, one world, harmony might be a dream But today, tonight, it’s enough to make me scream! Burn down the borders in your mind Because there’s only one race in all humankind Any excuse of ancestors beliefs handed down Of sticking to your own race for reproduction seem so profound Prick your finger, slit your wrist, you’ll bleed the same red just as us Change your future change your mind, tonight it’s us, all humankind Prick your finger, slit your wrist, you’ll bleed the same red just as us Change your future change your mind, tonight it’s us, all humankind No matter what the color No matter what the sex We all bleed red We all bleed red No room in this world For prejudice We all bleed red We all bleed red Throughout the ages it’s happened again and again The more we are different, the more we are the same We’ve come such a long way but still so far to go Brothers, sisters, join me and we’ll make tomorrow ours! Look at our history all the lives that have been lost because of this

CRUTCH Bitching on a microphone, telling others how to live their lives What to do when faced with opposition It’s so damn pathetic, another epidemic Crossing through the front lines of your fucking institution Are you fully prepared to put your faith in me I’ll be everything you need I’m your fuckin’ Jesus Christ Corporate media makes me sick Corporate media you fuckin’ dick Corporate media makes me blind Corporate media a waste of my time Are you fully prepared to put your faith in me I’m the excuse you’re looking for I’m your fuckin Muhammad Crosses on your fuckin’ eyes stiches on your fuckin’ mouth The poison deep inside that’s what it’s all about now Are you fully prepared to put your faith in me I’ll be everything you need I’m your fuckin jesus Christ Are you fully prepared to put your faith in me I’m the excuse you’re looking for I’m your fuckin Muhammad The pressures getting too deep now you can’t control the outcome Are you prepared to die in this fight you call your life Swine bird or all your fears combined It’s a way to keep your ass in line
