Message Of The Bhagavat
Concealed revealed
A revolution a solution without bloodshed finally
Disciplic succession has placed in my possession
Complete so sweet a satisfying taste for an empty race
There's fire in the city a fool won't admit it
And only a fool will sit right in it
Truth has been spoken for all mankind
And if you search for peace then you can find
The blind will stay blind if they're inclined
But the wise will apply in this crucial time
In illusion in confusion
The world's greatest brains create more problems not solutions
Expand our bold stand there can be hope for modern man!
It's the messaege of the Bhagavat
History of the universe 18.000 verses for our edification
I sat like an ass in class for 14 years at last
I got some real education
Extinguishing the fire of your workday life
That burns and burns us until we break
Illuminating rejuvenating not degenerating
Giving shelter to the people who want truth
Truth has been spoken for all mankind
And it's sad mad world when you can find
Man confined to the grind and they don't even mind
To be working for some jerk and leave their life behind
In illusion in confusion
And don't think there won't be any retributions
Expand our bold stand there can be hope for modern man!back to top
Civilized Man
There's a war in the day no peace at night
There's blood on the hands of man yet we don't symathize
The meateater kills the cows they just depersonalize to justify
Their own lust as the helpless die
And it's ironic how we cry for world peace
But the violence won't decrease unless our murders cease
So understand in the slaughter-house who's the beast
And I demand that the innocent be released
Well I've tried the best I can
I've tried to understand
Civilized man so-called civilized man
Yes I've tried the best I can
But who can understand
Civilized man?
Guilt free so-called morality
Fallacy
The 4 foods group just western medicine quackery
(meat would be) $35 a pound but our taxes subsidize
As 35 million starve as we gormandize
The grains that could feed the world go to their industry
To fatten up the catle for death and I protest
Rain forests once here kiss goodbye the biosphere ozone nightmare
Just see the people don't even care!
Guilt free we overlooked the blood and brutality
And the TV propaganda covers heinous reality
A plea to the people of this land to do
What they can with hope for a civilized manback to top
Here We Go
Just he uses love for sex
And sure she uses sex for love
And they're both hoping for the best
I also have that dream you're thinking of
If we place a blindfold on our eyes
Iron and gold appear the same
It's intense hope that makes us try
So we go on and play the game
And once again we get attached
And think we've found the answer
Here we go again
Ran into many walls
But I know I'll get that answer
Here we go again
We loved not wisely but to well...
We're hoping (s)he will be the one
But we never learn from our mistakes
And bassed on beauty love soon dies
Then we make our move to separate
Yes iron and gold appear the same
But one is costly to obtain
And I'll be the only onle blame
If I resist I know I'll gainback to top
Appreciation
I have been born in the age of thoughtlessness
And I too commit the crime of living in this world
Considering all to be mine
The earth the air the sun the trees
Like a body all work in perfect harmony
Will we fit into the system or create the disease?
Our greatest wealth it has been lost
I'd like to get it back at any cost
We dare live in this world without appreciation
Appreciate it's getting late
We've sealed our fate with all the damage that has been done
So much destruction so a few can have some fun
I contemplate and I dedicate
To getting myself out of this pathetic state
Of living without giving in a world
Where we've forsed to become so numb
And despite all say I get carried away
I took for granted it's easier not to think than to appreciate
And my cultures disease has got the best of me
And now I pray that it's not too lateback to top
Empathy
In my world where I'm the king I can't tolerate anything
And because of this I'm suffering all along
In my universe I can't be wrong
All those opposed just move along
Cross my path and you'll be gone
C'mon
Empathy, empathy will I emphatize?
Emphatize can I look through your eyes
I'll find different paradigms
And different minds never two of kind
And it'll bring me back down to size again
I live in a world where I'm the center of it
And everyone else seem so small
That was the beginning of my downfall
I never seen through your lens friend
And I'm gonna break if I don't brend
Is it too late to make amends?
No!back to top
Not The Flesh
Based on pigment a war begins
We've got two souls wrapped in different skin
Won't take it back it's a fact
No one can win
C'mon you can see the shape the world is in
And what's the fate of our state
That never learns from past mistakes
Can you estimate?
You better pray everyday
The dam don't break
I say hey you better pray
It's not too late
And mention the tension isn't pretty,
You can feel it in the city
You've got to watch your back expect attack
I always feel like I'm ready for combat
Yes yes we're spirit souls within this world
And I know that I'm free,
And I know that we're ready for a modification
Yes yes I'm convinced we're not this flesh
Can you hear what I'm saying?
Yes yes I'm convinced I'm not this flesh
Can you hear me?
Ignorance of identity we've created enmity
Denigration of a civilization
And that's our explanation
When it all falls down
Our bloods both red when blood is shed
I've heard the news there's one more dead
Just see the way that we've been bred
We've lost ourselves
And we've lost lost our identification
And it's evil the people live in fear
You can feel it in the air
It begins thinking
We're skin which overlooks what we're within
So why disgress?
This simple point will cause so much distress
Don't rate me hate me deprecate me
Or be ready for the ramifications
Watch the city crumble humbled
They don't even know
What slapped them in the face
We've got to instigate
And educate a spiritual solution
And we won't sit we won't conceal
Beacuse many feel the way I feel any
Many want this earth to heal
I've got a voice of an entire generationback to top
Chance
I've always wanted more
I couldn't settle for second best in life
And end up like the rest
I know out of thousands
Only one will come forward
A narrow gate that I'm gonna go for
I'll try but I may not succeed
But if I know I took that chance
Well that's all I need
I'll let the world disagree
But I'm gonna take that chance
The hour glass drops sand
As we waste our time
We stay on standby
As time destroys all in it's way
Wasting days
Be we've got to move
Success and failurein this world
All the same mere games that won't remain
So what's getting ahead unless we transcend?
For that I'm gonna try and try againback to top
Mantra
Earth can be a lonely place
Blank stares on the people's face
I contemplate their pointless chase
That traps me and my friends
Is this the place where I belong?
Where did we go wrong?
Will it last real long?
Are you too singing this song?
Sometimes I feel it
Sometimes I feel all so alone
And yes yes I must confess
I feel so far from home
Mantra take me home I trust you
Mantra take me home
Take me to the place where I belong
Life's a puzzle the thoughtful solve
But most choose not to get involved
Because of this we don't envolve
Just look around my friend
And life's meaning can be hard to grasp
All that's certain is it won't last
We're all spirits looking for transcendence
Oh mantra grant me tha independenceback to top
Surrender To Your TV
Promises of paradise, to you I sacrifice my life
I'll take you with me to my after-life if I could
Yeah just have faith it will begin,
Filling that void that lies within;
Turn off your brain and tune on in,
You know you should
You're in the center of our family
Lord of our home;
You're the one we turn to when we're alone
I've got faith in your words I live what you say;
Oh yes I accept will you show me the way?
And you know you better pray!
Everyday!
You better pray... to your Television
Gather 'round and come to mass,
Religiously drag your lazy ass
We just listen we don't ask ain't that the truth?
Our morning meditation, our daily routine
Prime time communion keeps the consciousness clean
The prophets are the stars worshiped on our screen
Proselytized, hypnotized by a machine!
Opiate of the masses have you bowed down yet?
Looking for reality but static's all I get
So many problems in life
But now they're easy to forget
How can I repay the debt to my T.V. Set?!back to top
Letter To A Friend
We were friends since school
The punks were never cool
But we didn't care anyway
And even in the scene
When it was cool to be mean
We walked the other way
Rebels from birth this world had no worth
But then you went astray one day
And I don't think it's right
That you gave up the fight
And walked away; you ran away
We could of made that change,
We could of set this world,
This world on fire
What happened to your desire
How did you think that I would feel?
Didn't you think I was for real?
I know it's been so long since then
But It's time I sent this letter to my friend
We had dreams and schemes
That they laughed about
But we didn't care anyway
I feel hurt and confused
When I think of you
Where do you stand my friend is it too late?
We stayed up all night and talked about life
We seemed so sober those days
We stood side by side
And I don't know why you threw it away
What can you say?
Well I'm gonna make that change
I'm gonna set this world
This world on fire
Whou cares about your pretty desiresback to top
Metamorphosis
Born selfish and ignorant
Abd my school gave me knowledge
But never any wisdom
And in addition the television programmed my brain
Through it's constant repetition
Misdirected infected with mundane roles and goals and heroes
And althought life really has purpose
I wasted my youth in a social circus
Told what is best for me
But I've seen their destiny
Our leaders ignominy
Reconfirm my concern to rearrange and change my life
I'll vow
I'll vow right here
And now no more time wasting just edification purification
We can direct our future
This life, this life has no meaning
Unless we grow
I know there's no use for all this screaming
Unless we grow
Born foolish dull and shelf absorbed
But my life's dedicated to reformation and education
In a nation that thinks great pleasure is a Disney vacation
I never fit in to their system
I couldn't understand people
Wasting their time with so called love
And ddrugs and occupations
While outside the window is a crumbling nation
So I searched for sincerity and lost popularity
Well what do they want from me?
If I lost friends they never were my friends at all!
To find the real me through introspection
And austerity is my life's mission my ambition
I've got a vision to change my destiny
Things don't change - we must changeback to top
