Death Wish Trolling for bikers Looking for a ride She needed a thrill She had to feel alive Going down the five At a high rate of speed Luckily she's still here She really felt free She had a death wish, death wish She had a death wish, death wish She had a death wish, death wish I wonder why She had a death Wish, death wish She had a death wish, death wish She had a death wish, death wish Hitting the corners Inches from the ground What was she thinking, it wasn't sound She didn't care, just wanted a thrill Speed was it, even if it killed
Who Are You Who are you to tell me what to do Get out of my car, get out of my house Get out of my life, gimme liberty now You can't legislate, against stupidity Who are you to tell me what to do Get out of my head, get out of my mind Get out of my job, ya make life a crime You can't legislate, against others hate Who are you to tell me what to do
Chuck and Nancy It's the same old story Here we go again It's Chuck and Nancy All they do is tax and spend Chuck and Nancy Chuck and Nancy Chuck and Nancy (1,3,5)Epitome of idiocy (2,4,5)They want to take your liberty They claim they do it for you Boy do they have you fooled They claim they know how to spend Your money better than you do Can't you see they're dangerous For the life of you and me They just want to change us So we forget we're that born to be free Among the richest Members in Congress They've taken money From you and me Same old shit all over again Why can't they let us be Can't you see they're on the Poster for leftist idiocy They've been in congress Way too long And don't live in reality They wield way too much power That they've taken from you and me They want us all to be socialist Which means we won't be free They tell you that they'll tax the rich They lie they lie c'mon don't believe
Tyranny of the Few A small but loud group With no brains The thought police Don't let you do anything Some nut from the EPA Biased and unelected Will make us pay Tyranny of the Few They're so bored with nothing to do They're empty inside And have no clue And they'll lie to you Some nut from the FDA Unelected, telling me the drugs That I can take They think they protect me From myself I don’t need your so called help Some nut up in the sky With a bomb because He wants us to die Now the airport has long lines We are paying For someone else's crime If 1 percent are gluten free Why does that mean we all have to be Even less have a peanut allergy Forcing compassion only kills society 10% have control of your life That's just not right We've got to begin to fight Telling the rest of us what to do The loud and unelected Wanna control the few One judge that has no clue Suspends the rights of me and you One nut ruins everything Breaks in and steals a precious thing I wake up to the FBI Pointing guns at me I'm asking why An unknown law is to blame Watch out it could be you someday
What is Truth? What is truth is the question of the day You say it's yes and they say it's nay If ya can't tell right from wrong Maybe that's been your problem all along Pontius Pilate is asking you Is Rome still here? What is True? Why are we living in the past Falling like Rome way too fast So much propaganda on all sides Can’t tell what’s the truth And what is a lie They say truth will set you free Who's truth will you believe? Hollywood propaganda Brainwashing you Everything they tell you isn't true They lie with the ease That you breathe Find the truth and you'll be free Believe with your eyes Not what experts say Believe the science Not what activists claim They've cried wolf too many times Find the truth And don't believe their lies What is True, I'm asking you To find out, And wade through All the lies they're telling you What is True? I'm asking you
Uno Momento Por Favor
Phd 02:09
Phd Your Phd means nothing to me A waste of time, a waste of money You can't tell - you're being lied to You think that - you're learning the truth Self-evident common sense Turned on its head Agenda trumps the truth Freedom of thought is dead Irrational, prejudiced and intolerant Forgive them For they've gone to college. Where you get indoctrination Instead of an education Power's hijacked truth Making you blind Professors controlling your mind Truth is not whatever you feel That's a fact, believe in something real A Phd means nothing to me It's a degree in fantasy A Phd means nothing to me You have no life, don’t know reality Everything ya learn - is only theory From a book - man that's scary You can speak - when you agree Open your mind - it will set you free You think you know better than me Because you got a Phd You're blind and cannot see Your academic idiocy A Master Degree In Stupidity Has made you blind so you cannot see Your Phd means nothing to me You wasted your time, wasted money
I Have a Plan I have a plan I’m a politician And I want to control you Not only that, I want your money too I know I’m smarter I know how to spend it better than you I’ll tell you things aren’t fair I'll tax the rich, but I’ll really tax you My plan is to micro manage Every aspect of your life I am going to tell you what you can do And what you can't You really don't know what you want But I do I can get all your needs fulfilled You don't need anyone else I have a plan I just want to be left alone!
L.A.’s Burning Everything is burning Down the 405 Fire on the freeway On the morning drive From the Valley to Ventura Everything's up in smoke The fire keeps raging Burning a thousand homes LA's burning, LA's on fire Smoke and ash all around The situation is dire LA's burning, LA's on fire It's out of control, hundreds will die Staying inside as the fire rages on Looking at the rubble Of million dollar homes Watching non-stop coverage on my TV Hurricane force winds Making fire burn everything LA's burning, LA's on fire LA's burning, the situation is dire LA's burning, LA's on fire LA's burning, LA's on fire
Don't take Everything so seriously Chill out, relax
Sick and Tired You project what you do I am no tool to use You're doing what you claim I do You claim to build me up But you only tear me down You think you’re a king without a crown Sick and tired of being sick and tired Of having to choose Between what’s bad and what’s worse My choices are few Like Sheep without a shepherd They don't know what to do They’re lost & they blindly follow you You reward the guilty And punish the innocent Sick and tired of it Being at my expense Deconstruction; De-evolution; Demoralisation; the damage is done. Denunciation; Desensitisation; Dissipation; the damage is done. Sick and tired of being SICK AND TIRED!
Offended Offended by your offense of me Offended by your insanity Offended by your offense of everything Offended by your idiocy Offended immediately Offended that you're ruining society Offended, you have no reason to be Offended, it's just stupidity Offended, you're showing your ignorancy Offended, get a life stop being offended Offended cause your black or white Offended every day and night Offended by offending everyone in sight Offended with all your might Offended you don't get a life Offended you'll have to pay a price Offended ya think lies are true Offended ya think red is blue Offended cause you always misconstrue Offended cause you're being rude Offended because you delude Offended cause you have nothing else to do Offended, you have no reason to be Offended, it's just stupidity Offended, you're showing your ignorancy Offended, just stop being offended
Don’t Be Scared Don't let fear control your life They just want to polarize Like New Age inquisitors Oppress, divide and blur Irrational fear has got a hold of you A dose of reality will get you through Nothing to fear but fear itself Don’t waste your fear on anything else Don't be scared, it's all you gotta do Don't be scared, it's what will get you through Don't be scared, don't let them get to you Don't be scared, why not try something new Don't be weak anymore Gotta be strong to win the war The fight is within, that's for sure You gotta be bold to change your mold And look at your own sin Live your life don't be afraid Live the truth no matter what they say The right kind of fear will protect The wrong kind will destroy it Look forward don't look behind You won't need a trigger warning And hear the truth with no restraint Then you can deal with anything
Do Something Disease Disease, Disease The Do Something Disease When you think that something’s wrong You think you know better And we’ll just go along You think you can do it Because you’re strong You think a law will fix it But you’d be wrong Elite, elite, you think you’re so elite You have to control me all the time You wanna make everything a crime You want to make me Spend every dime You don’t care how you do it You’ll always lie Greed, greed, it's all about your greed Money and power Just makes you insane You don’t care how you do it You’ll do it with disdain You’ll get you want No matter who you cause pain You won’t listen to anyone When they complain
Orange is Blue When truth isn't on your side You change the word's meaning Which makes it a lie You redefine words so you feel good You try to make me think Like you think I should You try to tell me orange is blue Telling me lies and not truth Deluding yourself isn’t good Truth doesn’t matter like it should You try to change reality By changing what words mean You try to change what I think And manipulate me You try tell me Left is Right Up is Down, Black is White You try to tell me Hot is Cold Day is Night, Young is Old Deluding yourself Thinking you're always right You think it’s true, but it's all lies You can’t see, cause you’re blind Orange is Blue, you’re outta your mind Left is Right, Up is Down Orange is Blue, Black is White Hot is Cold, Day is Night Orange is Blue, Black is White Lying to yourself, not living in reality Changing rhetoric, causing insanity Denying the truth, giving in to fantasy You decide to spew Extra strength stupidity
Police State USA Who do they think they are They think they can tell me what to do Biased and unelected Power hungry through and through Police State USA There's way too many rules They've taken away our rights They take our freedoms too Police State USA They won't change, it's no use The only chance we have is Electing people that aren't obtuse Unelected people In positions of authority Making government agency rules So they can take our liberty Get rid of the FDA IRS EPA Get rid of the DOE USDA Get rid of the ED OSHA Get rid of FEMA & the DEA Who do they think they are These crazy people Don't let em take our freedom Don't let em be so lethal
Devils May Pass I've got your number I know what you're trying to do You are tempting me Why don't you stop so I can be free Devils may pass, I don't need you Devils may pass, I don't need you Devils may pass Tempting me, through and through Devils May Pass, just let me be Devils May Pass, just let me be Devils May Pass Don't bother tempting me Please just leave Just go on by Get out of my head And leave me alone Instant gratification It’s what you do Happiness takes time A fact that is so sublime Tempting me with evil That looks so beautiful You want my soul With you for eternity
