Track Name: Empire
I wonder if the Romans saw their empire declining
were the ones that said it’s coming ridiculed accused of lying

called malcontents that only specialize in whining
losers who were mad at the citizens that were climbing

is this the way they rationalized a country that’s crumbling
with the flag waving nationalistic chest thumping and

did they throw parades to say that they were number one
instead of fighting the malaise that gave a hint that they were done

were they discussin’ corruption of people and authorities
pulled too thin to really cope with ever growing enemies

Unemployment rampant with a failing infrastructure
see I wonder if these things became the way that they went under

and it’s hard for me to see this shit and just ignore the parallels
while everybody parties hard and motto being what the hell

will others see the trend before it’s too late
or will the realization come with barbarians at the gate

Chorus

Don’t get mad at me cause I’m the one that’s yelling fire
denial is the gasoline that keeps the flames higher

ignore it if you wanna be a slave to your desire
but this is what it looks like at the death of empires

Three hundred million Americans are mostly seen as arrogant
the globe could be on fire and they would scarcely be aware of it

at least that’s the impression the rest of the world is given
but what’s truly nauseating is I can not argue with them

too many caught up in first world problems inside their first world bubble
their comfort level blinds their minds to the trouble

that their government will get into and do it in our names
cause nobody’s held responsible so they just took the reins

how could 90 percent of Americans want gun control
universal background check and they just say no

like fuck how you feel cause we don’t have to listen
but the NSA will monitor the emails you have written

to see crimes that you’re admitting//like confessions you’re submitting
and in the process of this fuckery the constitution ripping

oh by the way you’re paying us to disregard your problems
it’s ironic that problem's us so nobody will solve them

Chorus

Don’t get mad at me cause I’m the one that’s yelling fire
denial is the gasoline that keeps the flames higher

ignore it if you wanna be a slave to your desire
but this is what it looks like at the death of empires


nowadays these conspiracies are easy to believe
because the collective consciousness perceives the government deceives

and no matter how just ridiculous a lot of them will seem
the population will spread them around with statuses and memes

there’s a general disgust about the things that they don’t trust
when the media ain’t leading some topics they won’t touch

but our attention spans diverted we got A.D.D.
while those in power seek to redefine what liberty means

yo the people on the top give could a crap about the bottom
all the access, all the money, all the resources they got them

and you part your lips to talk about one man one vote
they laughing at you drinking champagne on their luxury boat

every empire ever existed has fallen to dust
and it’s kind of ludicrous to think that the exception is us

but laugh me off and watch us march down that exact same road
and years from now America will be another story told


Chorus

Don’t get mad at me cause I’m the one that’s yelling fire
denial is the gasoline that keeps the flames higher

ignore it if you wanna be a slave to your desire
but this is what it looks like at the death of empires
Track Name: Scorched Earth
it’s me against the world again
I guess that feelings permanent
a starving artist alone inside a room feel like a hermit when

I know it’s not my turn to win but fuck it I’m gon turn to pens
release the kraken when I’m rapping that’s really when my world begins

I’m not the rapper that you want I’m the one you deserve
not a rap god nor a trap fraud just a wizard of words

the shit I spit is hazmat toxic material that
goes over the heads of all the people I’m not aiming at

see I’m not here to hold your hands or even dumb down
I never assume you can’t understand me or really feel it now

the shit I do is for the few so please don’t misconstrue
the view is lovely over here but I can’t really speak for you

I’m only here for one purpose and that’s the boom bap
the type of music hip hoppers use that makes their head snap

if you can ride with that that means that we gonna ride together
middle fingers high for life and make this music last forever

Chorus

I recognize no bosses
I’m taking no more losses

if it don’t benefit me, don’t want to hear that nonsense

I put my family first// so come on bring your worse
before I leave this fucking planet I’m gonna scorch the Earth



I’ll never kiss the asses of the masses just to raise my status
and if that’s what it takes to make them happy you can fucking have it

never let a record label define the sound I make
or change the way I dress to fit some image I can only see as fake

I keep a tight circle cause knowing too many squares will hurt you
see they never with you and when it matters most ....they will desert you


these dudes superfluous..I don’t know what your purpose is
and you gonna miss the nice guy once that asshole surfaces

I’m not wit it... the ride is over...won’t get me twice
you really think I’ll let them shit all on my sacrifice

I swear I’ll kill those bastards first then plant a bomb inside their hearse
piss on their ashes and laugh while their remains disperse


whatever happens after I’m planted in the dirt and done
I’ll leave it all to my wife, my little girl and my son

cause in the end there happiness is all that’s paramount
that’s what I’m focused on that other shit don't even really count


Chorus

I recognize no bosses
I’m taking no more losses

if it don’t benefit me, don’t want to hear that nonsense

I put my family first// so come on bring your worse
before I leave this fucking planet I’m gonna scorch the Earth
Track Name: Manifesto
Should I really allow you// to live inside denial
and never criticize all of the bullshit inside the bible

or say that the Quran is not even special or vital
cause both of them are the same except for a different title

their legendary fables mixed with extraordinary myths
which I don’t have a problem with until you assert that they exist

see I question their veracity and point out their hypocrisy
I don’t like my intelligence insulted by people lying to me

I figured it was the same with you...but now I know that isn’t true
apparently us human takes pleasure in being lied to

and those few that value a truthful and honest view
get ostracized by the masses and told that it isn’t cool

so I probably will be infamous for even going into this
they’ll say I’m being impudent and angered by my insolence

how dare I ask for evidence// and expect to receive it
why can’t I be like all the rest...just shut up and believe it

yeah their arguments are specious the quiet atheist say
but don’t explore it just ignore it..why do you want to make waves

why would you want to name names//you’re going to hurt a lot of feelings
and start burning lots of bridges with all the stuff that you’re revealing

its reality concealing// and frankly I want no part of it
it’s obvious the reason you’re shook is you have no heart for it

and while you quiver in the corner condemned by all your silence
and science books get corrupted by political alliance

that wraps itself inside of a faith.. the source of it’s compliance
you can sit there being polite cause I’m being defiant

I'll Rail against stupidity instead of being all quiet
keep telling yourself the reason you don’t is cause you’re enlighten

stupid people say stupid things in a vacuum
until somebody comes along and has the nerve to challenge them

I tear down fences with facts I never straddle them
I learned to never fear what is proven to be exact in the end

and if you can’t relate it’s best you never come debate
go back and read some books on the subject and then extrapolate

the last thing that's needed is lies to be repeated
or the uninformed masses to find it somewhere and read it

emotions get attached and conversations get heated
cause people merge with the lies way deep inside and they repeat it

lies gets halfway around the world before the truth gets started
when you combat it you’re attacked by people who bought it

Those that know me know I give no inch to foolishness
cause once the fools see that you do then they start to using it

take and run with it and use it as an excuse for never proving shit
allowing it is the same as approving it

there is a method for dissecting claims so we don’t have to be restrained
when calling out assertions made that sound insane

I’m giving none the benefit of the doubt
and I’ll never be so open-minded that my brain will fall out

no evidence// well then it’s dogma than// I really have a problem when
I see them take a gap in our knowledge and try to fill it in

and by the way this don’t apply to just religion
I dissect all claims with the exact same precision

you too can use the same tools when making your decisions
when fuckers try to fool you, you school em and then dismiss em

it’s mental self defense you use when blocking all the damage
Take time to learn these steps and you’ll be ready for the challenge
Track Name: They Be Like
Keep your pseudo scientific quackery// that shit is wack to me
you manufacture that I close the factory

and actually you have to be// nuts to think that it’s factually
prudent you must be stupid don’t like it two words for you…..prove it

cause anything other than that could get you slapped
I snatch your ratchet box of snake oil and break that shit across you back

so let’s establish the explicit rules of conversation
do you solemnly swear to back up every single statement

with peer reviewed data that’s not misconstrued chatter
and fallacious argumentation that doesn’t even matter

not even talking about those bullshit links
from websites with webmasters that don’t critically think

back in the day they would have been labeled a bunch of village idiots
who gives a shit about the things they say they’re not legitimate

I see you parroting their every single word
and swallow every single turd of that shit that’s so
absurd

Chorus
They be like
I can’t believe you don’t believe with we believe
you must really think you smarter us but man please

we don’t care what you think... you’re not smart because you read
and you research everything...there’s some things you can conceive

there’s some things that only god knows... what about conspiracies
when the Illuminati comes for you..I hope they make you bleed

I saw this all on YouTube...why can’t you just accept it
you really make me angry that’s why I don’t like you skeptics


what did you think about before you shared that meme
did you research all of it’s claims to see exactly what it means

or did you rely on your bias and your feelings of defiance
and if you saw that it was false would you admit it or deny it

see that’s the very reason I keep hitting on this topic
if I get just one of you to ponder this maybe you’ll stop it

and start to really think about the damage that you do
when you assist these stupid dudes into spreading what isn’t true

To be perfectly honest I’m losing faith in hairless apes
perhaps all the time I spend on this is really a mistake

there’s a lot of other subject matter out there I could make
how about I rhyme about my shoes cause hey nike’s really great

never mind that shit is fake… and that’s why I dismiss it
my attitude alone will have me labeled as a misfit

I’m carving my own path with my message to the masses
it’s not about who’s fastest...it’s the one that really lasted


Chorus


chorus: They be like
I can’t believe you don’t believe with we believe
you must really think you smarter us but man please

we don’t care what you think... you’re not smart because you read
and you research everything...there’s some things you can conceive

there’s some things that only god knows... what about conspiracies
when the Illuminati comes for you..I hope they make you bleed

I saw this all on YouTube...why can’t you just accept it
you really make me angry that’s why I don’t like you skeptics


If you ain't fighting ignorance you're helping spread that shit
If what I say applies to you you need to dead that quick

And if you're doing it on purpose I would say thats sick
now you're the problem and its obvious you're wrong you prick

I kind of feel like its my duty expose you
And put you out in public so that everybody knows you

alerting as many people as possible
to let them know that the things that you say are just not logical

people are so comfortable with lies I guess they just feel better
their confirmation bias compliant to every letter

so when someone disputes it their ego just gets the best of them
instead of looking up what he said they try suppressing him

I’ll be that one that’s standing up against the dumb
and the pseudo-science army of zombies as they come

filled with all the soldiers, and Ray Comfort and Oprah
Ms silvia Browne and that clown Deepak Chopra
Track Name: All Things Must Pass
it’s been about 13 billion years or so and I wonder where the years have flown
and I’ve been a part of it all and even witnessed the expansion grow

I’ve seen the laws of physics sort out themselves
I’ve seen stars and planets form from out of gravity wells

even galaxies colliding with others in cataclysmic wonder
I caused destruction on levels to high to have a number

part of reality’s fabric// attached to it like a magnet
I’m not a villain there’s no reason to panic

but see I’m not hero either//I’m both but still neither
transcending all your names Anubis to the grim reaper

you little hairless apes can barely comprehend the scope of this
your life spans so short I can hardly say that you exist

you really amuse me the ways you try to lose me
you can’t cheat me or beat me no matter what you learned movies

beneath my notice I don’t see you when I reap you
I’ve ended entire whole worlds why would I care about people


Chorus
Ashes to ashes// dust to dust I know
Everything falls apart// its part of life's flow

And in time everything you ever knew will go away


You should be happy that you got the chance to share a little slice of sentience
no matter how short or how small and insignificant

so when the day comes that I put an end to it
reflect upon your life in the last minutes that you spend with it

just think about the people that you have touch and ones that you loved so much
accomplishments and failures fun times and all the such

or not….cause you can choose to go into the darkness screaming
disturbing all your people but to me it has no meaning

if it’s any consolation just know that all of them that mourn you
in a relatively short time will follow you and join you

everyone including the ones of them that’s just born too
exactly like the others before them when their time came due

the universe itself will get the gift ’m giving to them
The balance…..with the thermodynamic equilibrium

then I can finally rest and look upon the work I’ve done
until the quantum forces start to spark another one




Chorus
Ashes to ashes// dust to dust I know
Everything falls apart// its part of life's flow

And in time everything you ever knew will go away
