Public Menace, Freak, Human Fly
I know a man-his face is like plastic
Stretch smile wide, it's elastic
I know a girl she can fill up a room
1200 pounds, footsteps of doom
I know a machine man he's x-51
Harder than steel-his fists they're
Like machine guns
I know a guy bend a fork with his mind
The three-eyed baby, she is not blind

From mud hut to skyscraper in the
Wink of an eye
Back again just as fast
Public menace, freak, human fly

I know the rat boy he does the rat dance
Born with a tail
He had to cut a hole in his pants
I know the slug of the slime of the
Slug of the worm man
Couldn't walk a step, but he
Dreamed that he ran
I know the skeleton girl she'll play
A song on her bones
Creak the high notes and rattle
Those low tones

From mud hut to skyscraper in the
Wink of an eye
Back again just as fast
Public menace, freak, human fly

Dollar a look
Dollar a look
Dollar a look
Dollar a lookback to top
Neckbone or backbone neckbone or back
You got no fiction if you've got no fact

Neckbone or backbone your choice for the breakin'
You're thinkin' for a minute your choice might be takin' mistaken
For some good or some bad
You see what you got

There ain't no difference in the left, right
There ain't no difference in the blind, sight
Now stop for a minute 'cause your head is gettin' spastic
Paper or plastic-paper or plastic

Situation no win is the sin
So you rush for a change but the change has just always been the same
Same fools still trippin' off some old ways
New fools just thinkin' about some better days

Transparent, apparently you let it all pass
A kick in the head a kick in the ass
It's all the same to me

Fire or freezin'
Dried up or bleeding
Just when it's over you get what you're needing too much or no time
Shut up it's all mine and I let it go like that

Neckbone or backbone neckbone or back
You got no fiction if you got no fact

Kobeyashi maru what you gonna do
Am I gettin' through
Am I gettin' through

Five triple zero
Yes you are no hero
You stop and wait, and why
Oh where, oh where, oh where can I be
You must understand that the world is crazy it's not for me

This is combat rock for the masses
But you know I fear the masses need to get their asses kicked, quick!
Step on up...back to top
Car Crash
Red, the color the lines the road 225 the fearless explode
Who burns rubber from coast to coast supernova gets burned like toast

Gasoline blood fire veins honk kong flu rides soul train
Concrete breakfast, star struck fame first place killer the man with no name,

Machine shop rodeo the scrap pile boss, you're the one who's gonna learn about loss
Eyes on the road souls in the gutter burn up the street just like the toe cutter

Don't be foolish don't go insane dead man's curve, ride the inside lane
Concrete breakfast, star struck fame first place killerback to top
Earth vs. Me
That's the way it's gotta be
The Earth vs. me
Tales of the ordinary madness
Who's to blame, I mean for all
The sadness could it be the
Enemy within or just them
I blame them who is the one
That's kickin' your ass
Who is the one that's on your
Back stabbin' the soul twister
Turn your miss into a mystery, I see
That's the way it's gotta be
The Earth vs. me
Well, I can dig it yeah I'll rise
Above it all
Never, never, never takin' the fall
Well the thoughts that I think
Are paranoid
The thoughts that I
Think I can't avoid
I swear they're out to get me
But get me not 'cause I'm ready
For the fight see
Trapped in a conscious state
Of mind of seperation
Stickin' to kickin' the facts
From the songs of alienation
Stickin' to kickin' the facts,
Stickin' to kickin' the facts
Stickin' to kickin' the facts
From the songs of alienation
Some people were meant to be
Left alone so step off
Step one - dehumanize
Step two - is when you realize
Step three - humiliate
Step four - recreateback to top
A Swim With the Sharks
You get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing
Well a swim with the sharks is like me

I'll find them for three and catch them and kill them for ten
When they smile just cut off your legs
You've got no time to think only to beg

Twenty no twenty five - three tons
The one in the front is the one on the run
Well it's blood red
Fair game for the eats 'cause this my home this is my street

Well is a swim with the sharks like weak is for strong
Nobody knows it yet not right from wrong
Deep is the dark from the depths of the dive
Am I okay, am I alive?
Well the hot house now seems like suckin' on some ice cream
Funny thing is it'll make a grown man scream
Want to stay afloat but don't forget it
All I've got to say you're gonna need a bigger boat

Well a swim with the sharks is like now
The darkness
The sun...forever...doneback to top
Tokyo Vigilante #1
Tokyo vigilante #1 kills with his
Mind not with a gun
The rumor 'round town, that he
Was all washed up,
But then he showed up
And then he cleaned up

Sharper than a sword
He don't run
You can't fuck with the number one son
He said now everybody needs
A little vengeance
And when you want some,
You call me
Yeah, everybody needs a little
I'll kill any man for a fee!...

Now who amongst you is
Gonna stand up
Now who among you is gonna fall
Now who's got the brains to see
What's going on
And who amongst you is gonna

Well it's all for one
But they say it isn't so
Blood in the streets
Of downtown tokyo
But the prayers of the weak get
Answered like a shot
Quick, fast style
Yeah, check it out pressure drop


Eventually time it grinds
Down to a halt
The ultimate battle
The slug and the salt
The sun rises in the east
But sets in the west
Tokyo vigilante he never rests

Test of the body,
Test of the mind
The future's on time
And the future's unkind
Explain the thought process
Of the insane
Not like the movies,
But it's just the sameback to top
Like a kung fu maniac drunk on the blood of a thousand victims
My case in point is I don't have a system
No need to knock them down
What's that sound or uplift them, yeah
Well maybe in space no one can hear you scream
Now is it yourself or is it a team
Think fast 'cause you might get caught while you're asleep
The forces of evil run deep, they're so deep

Gettin' organizized
Gettin' organizized
Get get get-in' organizized
Gettin' organizized
Gettin' organizized
Get get get-in' organizized

Confusion is the heart of stability
Stability is the heart and soul of insanity
It's going, it's going what's going's got you gone
There ain't nothing' here so move along
When it rains it pours it pours, it rains insanely
Logic is the strength of the truth but the pain sees it all
I'd tell you why but I cannot recall

Gettin' organizized
Gettin' organizized
Get get get-in' organizized
Gettin' organizized
Gettin' organizized
Get get get-in' organizized

Possessions possess they kill you distress
I know what's here and that is a mess
When you recreate the fact, you recreate the factual
What was never here becomes the actual
Seven thousand words scripted out in rhyme
And I've got some too but in the meantime I'll step from the flow 'cause that is my way
I know what's when hey what can I sayback to top
Insturmentalback to top
Standing 8
Out on your feet standing 8, standing, 8
You can't look to me when you sealed your own fate
It's one to four and you're half way there
I can tell from your face your and blank stare
That there ain't nothin' going on upstairs
And the state that you're in is despair
It ain't rare that your eyes are seeing double
It's par time for the course 'cause you know you're in some trouble

One - check the eyes for some vision
Two - I seem to sense indecision
Three - you're getting weak in the knees
Four - crying please baby please
Five - begins the loss of the brain cells
Six, six, six - and you go to hell
Seven - you ain't looking so right
Eight - it's too late that's the end of the fight
Out on your feet standing 8,
Standing 8 out on your feet standing 8

So what went wrong, you were so strong where's
The flow in your show
Must been something, but I don't know
You fly like an eagle, but you die like a dove
It seems to me that your name is mud

Blood on the canvas painting a portrait
A slice of life and the fact that you're unfit
But you kept steppin' and gettin' your wreckin'
It seems like awhile but it only took a second

Was that right? was that the left? was it the jab?
Or was it this hook?

It's undisputed, but who did the damage
Do you think you can manage
Are you in or are you out?
Now there was a time when your mind was you mind
It's a desperate state I find when you're holding up
The peace sign your name to the contract to get
Yourself some combat but won't that start bringing
About decision
You've got a choice, much due respect or beat into
Submission...back to top
Even Superman Shot Himself
Goddamn, even superman shot himself
Blew his mind couldn't save the wealth
Maybe he read the sunday paper
Murder front page death and rape

I can't see through the haze of the hazy
It's the little things that drive a man crazy

You know what I mean I know why he did it
Too slow to outwit it, get it
His cape was red, but so was his blood
Man of steel fell with a thud

Taken out by a villain who's willin' to stand in line
And do the time you hated 'cause life brings death that life has created

And do you understand when I say it's the little things that break the man
By the way are you feeling it bit by bit
Piece by piece they're stealing it
Bite the dust hit the deck they're dealing it
You've got to give it up

Sometimes I feel so stupid
Sometimes I feel so low
Sometimes I think of all the things that I'll never know
Sometimes I don't know what to do
But most motherfuckers don't have a clue

Open your eyes see out the inside the point of the point of the point you can't hide from the shit that's all around funky ghetto of the mind that brings you down
Can't shake it 'til you give it up, sell your soul, or don't give a fuck

Takin' you out superhero style your finger's on the trigger
Wishing you were bigger all the while you've got the soul with rigor mortis
Like travis bickle said, suck on this
You've got the soul with rigor mortis
Suck on this
The grip on the neck and the snake bite kissback to top
