Track Name: Before The Law
fuck livin' a nostalgia trip.
perpetual presentness
makes it tough , sometimes, to get a grip
but ya fuckin' gotta .

the door's open but yr waitin';
ya gotta walk right through it !
yr always makin' so much noise, man,
but ya never fuckin' do it !

who's the one that stands Before the Law?
what the fuck , man ? there's no one guardin' the door at all
except a "self" that's immaterial .

remain balanced on tha dizzying crest; fucking focus .
Track Name: Juice
It's not all about tha Juice.
Refuse to fall for that ruse.
And while I do, of course, understand
the need to cut loose
(and despite catharsis in one's "I" or one's "You"),
there aint no 1 man above tha crew.

Tupac was just playin' a part,
fetishizing a life that's hard.
Fuck clout. Omar figured it out.
Who's got tha Juice now ?
Track Name: Media Stomp
media limits me
via technologic passivity
and cultural conditioning.
but, fuck! Media Crap is all i see
and none of it means shit to me .

i keep seeing the same fucking thing:
every one is always looking down
at a fucking screen
and i'm like "what the fuck is happening?"

i exist in a mediated society
within which the mediums are killin' me ;
so i'm checkin' out .
Track Name: Angelus Novus
the Angel of History
turned her back to me
and said:
"This is how it's always gotta be:
every day
there will be nothing
but Shit in the way
and you'll call it 'Progress'."

so now everything
i ever see
is always-already
behind me .

thus if I'm kicking up dust
blame it on Angelus Novus.

it's just that Benjaminian History:
obsessed with one's mortality .
Track Name: Set It Off
Death is Certain,
Life is not .
Track Name: Eternal Recurrence
eternally recurring,
the negative feedback .
i've gotta think twice about it
or not think at all .

so much anxiety
and bullshit insecurity;
ya wna push that shit on me ?
that 's fuckin' insanity.

fuck yr apathy.

everyone's gotta stop
bangin' their heads against walls.

(as if it's up to me
[who else could it be?]?)
Track Name: Elephant Man
now that tha lights on me
i gotta wonder: who's tha freak?

machines: we develop, we employ.
human beings: we enslave, we exploit .


NOTHING WILL DIE
said Lord Tennyson.

NOTHING WILL DIE
cuz nothing's permanent.

NOTHING WILL DIE
"all things will change."

NOTHING WILL DIE
except The Elephant Man.

who is tha freak ?
Track Name: Tunnel Vision
have you ever considered
that the light at the end of the tunnel
is just another tunnel ?
or is that too tough to swallow ?

take control and things will follow.

but even if ya don't -

are you concerned with bein' cool?
or are you Cold like me?

can't you see i'm at tha end of my rope?

livin' life
without hope .
