Track Name: Human Beast
They're counting down
Hide and seek
But they will not catch us
they like us under the sheets

I pity the fool
Who dreams in green
'Cause the sooner you get there
The sooner they take your needs

I'm a cast away
Steadily taking my place
As the others look
For how much they can take
But you cannot blame a human beast 2x

You hear of signs
From everywhere
People are talking
and others can over hear

They say the skies
Has different strokes
That means something is coming
The skies cannot change on its own

I'm a cast away
Steadily taking my place
As the others look
For how much they can take
But you cannot blame a human beast 2x
Track Name: Speaking of the Beast
She doesn't dream
Says she's living reality
Her mother told her
That she shouldn't be
Well, dreams do fade
Once you learn
How to play victim

He's not a man
But he gets away with it
Women are out there
Just looking to babysit
Cleaning his bed
As a spills out from his head

I will not linger on like my mother did
Nor will I leave my people behind
Even if the cards tell me suffering
I refuse to die while I'm alive

Children are learning
That money's a godsend
People are pointing
But I just laugh at them
Isn't it obvious
We all play a part in this
Closer than we know

I will not linger on like my mother did
Nor will I leave my people behind
Even if the cards tell me suffering
I refuse to die while I'm alive

My my speaking of the beast
Tell me have you seen?
Crippled in her tiny cave
And I think its time to feed

Surprise, Surprise
From all this time
Got nothing nice to say
People getting angry
Especially when they're spade
Track Name: Bourgeois
Humble Beginnings
Check to Check
And to the tee
Isn't fitting
for the greatest people in history
Oh the blue collar
Working hard and underpaid

New money
Walking high on phony pride
Isn't funny
How much can change with dollar signs
A polished hustler
claims that they can make me

And the bourgeois
Said to me now
We will get all the riches for ya
And easily I would dance like a dog for meat
They were bothered
When they found out
That a dollar can't train me

Humble Beginnings
Taught me I don't need anyone
Humble Beginnings
Many men fall but many men won
Every warrior
We just have to have it made

And the bourgeois
Said to me now
We will get all the riches for ya
And easily I would sing like a parakeet
They were bothered
When they found out
That a dollar can't cage me

We don't jump for the bourgeois 6x

And the bourgeois
Said to me now
We will get all the riches for ya
And easily I would bathe in pools of green 3x
They were bothered
When they found out
That a dollar can't wash me
Track Name: Where is your home?
Where is your home?
Out of balance
From the power that comes from the North
There you will go
To see the damage
Of the people who's cash over souls

Where is your home?
In the village
Where the people are chased by the guns
There you will go
See the suits of
Of the men who forgot where they're from

But the times
They are changing
And our ways will not last for too long
In the times
We are learning
Just how little that we really own

So you get up and go!

They don't know what to do no more
So you get up and go!
Track Name: Ayibobo!
Oh I believe
In skies of grey
There still can be seen
Shades of blue
And when the sun leads to the moon
I start anew

I've lost my mind
Never tried to find it
'Cause what I discovered
It was keeping me down
But when eyes reawaken
I start anew

If skies that crumble
And brings tears
To your eyes
Can rise up in the morning
And bring hope through sunken eyes
Then the love that was lost
Can start anew

Give me the light

In my heart
Beats a drum
Louder than you and I
Louder than you and I

If skies that crumble
And brings tears
To your eyes
Can rise up in the morning
And bring hope through sunken eyes
Then the love that was lost
Can start anew
