Track Name: Middle Finger Machine Gun
Hey quit messing around
What’s the matter can’t you see
That I’m standing over her minding my own business
Then you come over and start talking trash
It makes me sick
You think you’re smart, you’ve got no idea
Who I am, Where I’m from, Where I’ve been, What I’ve done
So say hello to my
Middle Finger Machine Gun

Hey what’s the point of all this?
Understand that I’m a busy man, and I’ve got shit to do
Don’t have time to sit around and listen to your words of non-wisdom
You don’t like my style, my hair, my shoes
I don’t recall, asking you
So take a walk, take a hike, catch a bus, ride a bike
Wait, I’m not done
Middle Finger Machine Gun
Track Name: Victorious
I walk along a path of anti-violence so tell me
What do you want to start with me for?
I made a promise to be peaceful until the end so tell me
Why do you want to mess with me?

I warned you that we’re dangerous
And now we leave Victorious
Tried to kick us down in the dust
But instead we leave Victorious

I show you kindness and you show me treachery, tell me
What do you want to start with me for?
Reply with silence and you take another swing, tell me
Why do you want to mess with me?

Warned you that we’re dangerous
You cannot take control of us
Always Victorious, you cannot get the best of us
Track Name: Midnight Sunshine
With a blade to the night, and my back to the wind
Got to cut through the lies and find out where the truth begins
Because I know that I’m free, to be what I believe
And I’ll fight for the right to practice Funkeology

Everyone, everywhere
Take a stand, show your hands
Light your light, let it shine
Brighter than the Midnight Sunshine
Everyone, everywhere
Take a stand, show your hands
Light your light, let it shine
Brighter than the Midnight Sunshine

On the road up ahead, wolf cries at the moon
But I can’t slow down so I walk along in the misty gloom
Though the road may be dark, and the hills may be steep
I will never turn back, never give up on the truth I seek

Come together, Funk Nation
Kill the lies and find the revelation
Track Name: Wheel of Fortune
Back in the day, it was made known
Let he without sin be the one to cast the first stone
Now you can judge me based on what you see
It may make you feel better but it don’t make you better than me
The only way to achieve true wealth is through mental, physical and spiritual health
The only true way to love oneself is through mental, physical and spiritual health

Can’t spend our lives on a wheel of fortune
While it’s spinning all we see
Is a lonely dollar sign, hearts grow cold inside
There’s something better I believe

You can work hard, work you fingers to the bone
But what good is the money when there’s no one there to spend it on?
And you can push, be at the top of your game
But what good is the top when the loneliness is driving you insane?
Track Name: Leave Me Burning
On a random Saturday afternoon
Walking through and I
Didn’t know I’d never be the same
You were something new
I’m a fool

You just leave me burning
You can’t take me higher
I can’t stop from falling
It’s because of you

Behind his shades and his long hair
I can see, what’s behind and I
Have never felt more connected
Where I can’t breathe, God help me
Track Name: Funkeology
In a land of insanity
Little hope for humanity
Every war brings us no good
If we listen maybe we could
See that there’s just one way to save us

Not a trend or new religion
But an ancient tradition
Has the power to make good
If we listen maybe we could
See that there’s just one way to save us

Funkeology is what we need
Funkeology eternally
I’ve seen the future and it’s clear to me
If we want to survive we’ve got to learn to study

When every corner of every room
Is filled with anger and bad perfume
With vices plenty and dreams distraught
We all lie broken from the lies we bought
Our one salvation lies within
Where evil is forbidden and truth always wins
Track Name: Karma's Got a Gun
One, one, one, one
Run, run, run, run

Run baby run, Karma’s got a gun
And he’s searching after you
Well I hope you had fun
Run baby run, Karma’s got a gun
And he’s searching after you, you
Now your time is through
Run baby run, Karma’s got a gun
And he’s searching after you
Now you’re finally through

He never leaves home without wearing his mask
He finds fresh meat who have no clue about his past
He plays the part of all your wants and needs
While inside his head he’s dealing with the demon that he feeds

Run baby run, Karma’s got a gun
And he’s searching after you
Well I hope you had fun
There’s always two sides when the story arrives
You need to recognize you’re dealing with the Devil’s child
Nobody knows who’s the man behind the mask
But you’ll find him at the bar with his hand around his flask

He’ll use you up, for everything you’ve got
He’ll give you the gun, after he’s already shot
Mama ought to know, who her daughter’s bringing home
Do a search on his name, and don’t leave her alone

Run baby run, Karma’s got a gun
And he’s searching after you
Yeah I hope you had fun
Run baby run, Karma’s got a gun
And he’s searching after you, you, you
I hope you had fun
Run baby run baby run baby run
One, one, one, one
Run baby run baby run baby run
Track Name: Tomorrow World (feat. ill e. gal)
No prototype made, no travel through space
No inter-galaxy, no freedom from disease
No living on the moon, or bottom of the sea
No what could be, no if only

We’ve got to make the best of what we have
Who knows how long it’s gonna last
We’ve got to make the best of what we have
No one knows how long it’s gonna last

The future is right now
So don’t make no mistake
Don’t you know the future is right now
And there’s no time to waste
We live in a tomorrow world
We live here today
There is no tomorrow world
There’s only today

Live in the now, how? Time to make a vow
Be in the moment, own it, because it’s all we got
Live in the now, how? Time to shout it loud
Be in the moment, own it, because the time is now

No innovation, to cure starvation
It takes humanity, to feed a nation
The answer is not in technology
Not what could be, not if only

If you perception needs correction, let me give you some direction
Let go of the past, reflection, memories, complete perfection
Don’t get lost in your projection of tomorrow’s lesson
Standing in the intersection, know that it’s a blessing
Live in the now, how? Time to make a vow
Be in the moment, own it, cuz it’s all we got
Live in the now, how? Time to shout it loud
Be in the moment, own it, cuz the time is now
Tell me everybody are you giving in?
Because tomorrow’s the world we’re living in
Tell me anybody are you listening?
Because tomorrow’s the world we’re living in
Tell me everybody are you giving in?
Because tomorrow’s the world we’re living in
Tell me everybody are you listening?
Because tomorrow’s the world we’re living in
Track Name: Silhouette
All around there’s lots of people
But they stand so still their eyes I see right through
Smile beside these walls I tremble
As they’re digging down my back with rusted blades

Cut around until there’s nothing left
Bury the form of me, and trace my Silhouette
Cut around until there’s nothing left
Bury the form of me, and trace my Silhouette

Even now through crowds of people
I cringe inside with passing every face
Whispering with eyes of evil
And they’re crushing every moment I’m awake

Look around at all the people
Their mouths, their jaw, their eyes are clouds of gray
Every town and every steeple
And they’re calling, calling, calling from the grave
Track Name: Undertow
Here I stand at the end of the world
Head raised to the sky feet on the earth
Waves approach while above clouds converge
One by one faces races submerged
Will it get any better once tonight passes?
Will we get to be at peace and free from strife, after life?

Can’t stop the Undertow
Choices made we stand alone
Destiny is here now it’s time to go
Can’t stop the Undertow

Left to right prayers and desperate cries
Voices lifted to indifferent skies
If not righteous salvation denied
Your worst nightmare materialized
Will it get any better once tonight passes by?
Will we get to feel relief not sacrifice, after life?
