1.Choke Parade (修改)

[Verse I]
Barely noticed puberty as hair grew subtly onto my virgin flesh
Permanently burning away at my baby fat chest
'Ceschi the stretch marks from when you were 16 are still there to tell you that you're going nowhere'
Fast at least
No masterpiece will last a week
While giants and dragons jump onto the canvas sheet
How you gonna prove you're not another sucker with a dream
Living under your Grandpa's roof in a room with your brother
All of us want to be someone better
Until the moment when the ominous comes
And jumps stomps on our festival
It's a fucking rainy day
Plain and gray
In Connecticut waiting for a saving grace
To take us away
And it's just

One quick moment for the parade to arrive
In just one moment all the floats will choke the sky
One quick moment for the parade to arrive
In just one moment all the floats will choke the sky

[Verse II]
Helium filled monstrosities wave in the wind above a cheering crowd
That's tearing down our city
Simply with the blaring sound
Of 'Oohs' and 'Ahhs'
And huge applause
As people scurry to catch a glimpse of balloons in fog
Everybody in LA was looking for a lucky break
But all I really wanted was to get out of that fucking place
I never wanted to be that big blimp in a parade
That just sits in deep haze
Waiting for the day that it deflates

[Verse III]
Then we'll chuckle in sync
Like after Snarf jokes on Thundercats episodes
We'll reminisce about bullshit we walked through on this wretched road
It was a mess, I know
Tough to pass the test of growth
But we never let those foes
Question our endless sense of hope
This is a song for all my friends trying to live off music
A song for my people who are told every day that they'll never do it
Even though we'll all wind up in space under graves
At least we kept our legs strong moving along the whole way


2.One Hundred Dragonflies (修改)

Woke up to one hundred dragonflies circling our heads
The day after you left us so alone
Now all that I can see are bright lights in spaces where you were
You were always singing
You were always there

Woke up alone today
Again in the dark
And the storm outside couldn't hide my brother's cries
Violent moans like those of our father when dope left his system
We need you more than you know
We need you more than ever

History left your mark on my face with this nose and hair

That still grows wild as grape vines
Kissing my cheeks
I know you're here

So I'll hold my breath till I see shapes or see your face again
Whichever comes first
If that doesn't work, I'll summon heaven
To pour down onto us all
And leave us drenched wet in your scent

You are always listening
You are always here

3.Rowing In Circles (修改)

It seems hopeless floating on this winding river
It seems that I'll never get to where I'll lay
Oh so softly on a bed head on a pillow
Know the road can make a man forget his age
Touch me baby till I forget my own name
Touch me gently on the head or through the veins
I've been rowing 'round in circles 50 days
I've been rowing 'round in circles 50 days

[Verse I]
Forget about it
Money come, money go
Hustling hard trying to paint plastic gold
Happy in my Connecticut hole
Got that Hemingway shotgun to the head swagger though
Sometimes feel like a jaded mess
I'm the ashes of David Koresh or less
Tangled in webs
Even at my best there will never be an S emblazoned on my chest
So what's next?
So what's next?

It seems hopeless floating on this winding river
It seems that I'll never get to where I'll lay
Oh so softly on a bed, head on a pillow
Know the road can make a man forget his age
I've been rowing 'round in circles 50 days
I've been rowing 'round in circles 50 days

[Verse II]
Money come, money go
Many men make many mistakes over money though
That's the road
Always surrounded but still alone
Spent my last dime trying to live in a musical
Never lost sight of my goals, but it's so cold
With rats crawling into your home
That clichéd cloud over my head is so real
My Grandmother's death was so real
I'm so fake
Ten cop guns to my head were so fake
Can't feel a goddamn thing, but I'm awake
Will I ever learn from these stupid fucking mistakes?
Rowing in circles trying to turn ponds to lakes
I'm so me so bored of it
Bullet in my mouth spit out ornaments
Was I really born for this shit
Or will I be torn to bits
By a swarm of regrets
Is that it?

4.Kurzweil (Featuring David Ramos, iCON The Mic King, Shoshin (修改)

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall
Some will fight for survival
Very few will stand tall
Yeah yeah
Nothing lasts too long
I'm not advanced
I'm no Kurzweil
Just a man
And I'm flawed

[Verse I: David Ramos]
Let's play pretend
Move it on beyond your body transcend (yeah)
I am just a broken version of the perfect person searching for some type of affordable plastic surgeon to solder these wires properly
Honestly I bought 1 million vitamins in the hopes that they might end my endless flaws
Amino acid concoctions
That claimed that they would bring me calm
I wish I could've been a better person when it actually meant something
Not now
These retrospective reflections won't reverse my errors
Just an endless apology follows me stuck on repeat


[Verse II: iCON The Mic King]
Made a life in places where dreams die
X marks where you'll see Y
I coordinate time in form of space
Defy what they've defined
Long as you can afford it fine
Order mine I'm in the claws of time
I'm sorta Jordan Belfortified
I mind the more til it's more than mine
Ain't so sure who I used to be
Even less of his use to me
Waiting on the singularity
To come and wipe my error clean
Don't need your memory truthfully
I'ma still ghost ride this griffin
But here's the silent difference
Even if my values are questionable
They know my value isn't


[Verse III: Shoshin]
Got drunk on true love
Then threw up
Lifting liquor to listless lips to liver
Deliver me from the stinking sick in which you sunk
Six years plus
Lost in the fog of lust
We fucked
Every caustic
Colossal sin ensconced in skin sings to be seen
Screams to the beat
Such awful haunting hymns
Tethering us taut blood loss to limbs
Engendering all squalls from frothing lips
Spitting venom in a hostile toxic fit
Our trespasses surpass us
All-encompassing shadows cast
Wrapping our limbs up as the rafters come crashing
Holding on until it falls apart
A holocaust of hearts


[Verse IV: Ceschi]
September 4th I was taken
By Connecticut state and
Placed into custody
Shackled roughly
And stripped naked
Hispanic 'H' on my I.D
Like many men in chains by me
All we ever really want to do is find peace
But spend lifetimes only fighting
I'm no enlightened being
Just been taught
By the things I've seen
Violently made mountains of mistakes
Got lost in my faults and greed
All these men live life like me
Gamblers who risked everything
To feed their seeds
Or breed their dreams
In the end got caught
Under lock and key


5.Elm City Ballads (修改)

4 AM
Driving through the streets of New Haven again
Baby faced crack corner kids
Working grave yard shifts
With the diner waitresses
Everybody trying to break bread
I'm every lung that's breathing in this filthy city waste
I'm trick turning street walker
Mary full of grace
Undocumented worker wage slave
I'm needle pierced vein
I am black rose on Grandmother's grave

We'll find our way the old men said in AA
They told us faith in God would take the pain away
But God is nowhere to be found in this place
We're only half awake
Waiting to be served slop and corn cake by inmates

Love me city, till I'm gray
Elm city love me safe
Love me city, till I'm gray
Love me till I am erased

6.Beyond The End (修改)

[Verse I]
Winter froze our crooked fingers into praying hands
At a January funeral for a sweet faced man
When we pulled black suits out of closets once again
And squeezed our fatter bodies into them
To carry a casket through a catholic parade
Full of tissues and condolences
Till a priest spoke your name
In a mundane way he prayed
Claiming you were in a better place
I'm not convinced but hope that it's the case
When springtime arrives and melts away the snow around your grave
I'll still remember you in 10th grade
With a teenage smirk
Disc-man works of Richard D. James
That image will stay burnt onto my brain
I'll miss you like our younger days
We'll miss you like our younger days
Before grays started showing our age
Attempting to love life as much as you did
Won't remember you painted in a box
Not a cliché at a wake
Not a tear drop

Not a cliché
Not a tear drop
Not a cliché
Not a tear drop
You are forever

[Verse II]
Mother's house is covered in your photographs
Every angle of your face
Every age
Every hair style phase
And we puffy eyed droogs
Huddle in her memorial gallery
For the first of our gang to pass beyond the galaxy
Tangled in uncomfortable laughs
Masking the cracks in speaking voices
Unable to come to terms with the fact that you won't be back
As much as we dream of reviving you
Right now we don't know how to react
Or where to find you
We'd fight for you
We'd break bones
Bite through stone
And punch holes directly into the depths of the unknown
Till our fists turned bloody red
But today we're sitting in silence
Without a life to defend
Lost without our friend
And I'm at a loss for words...
Searching for a thousand more ways to say that
'Life is cruel and absurd'
That 'it wasn't your turn'
But you're buried in dirt
While I'm still walking this earth
Disgusted by the fucking world
If this is how it works


[Verse III]
Battling with faith
And it's hard to say if I'll see you again
Not sure what I believe in the end
But I'm at least confident
That I'll catch glimpses of you in contours of your sister's face
Or your fiancées gaze upon any mention of your name
You visited during prison bunk visions
So lucid and vivid
That it almost convinced me
For minutes
That you were still living
But now I'm wide awake and a cynic
Chewing on birthday cake and been livid
Wishing that I could write a song to bring back the dead and fix all things wicked
But I better leave this selfishness and let you rest
See you again at the peak of Connecticut fall
When leaves turn red
Or within that San Francisco fog
So thick it can blanket the bridges
And cover our damages
I'll see you again
Within the serenity of
Atlanta magnolias
My friend
Though I dreamt of fixing all wrongs...
Unclogging lungs from blood clots...
Sometimes we're forced to stop
And appreciate moments we all got
So I'll shut my mouth at last
Surrender myself to the chaos
It'll all go by so fast
Beyond the end
Love you Rob


7.Beauty For Bosses (修改)

Today I learned
That I wasn't built for the game
That I'd rather play floor gigs for 40 kids
Than any fucking festival stage
I'm a martyr at most
I'm a failure at least
In the eyes of history I'll be no more than a leaf on a tree
3000 years of work surrounding me
By forgotten anonymous artists
Beauty for bosses
Before fame was even a concept

Some of them were stoned to death
For the way that they expressed
Today we're only stoned by debt and dope
And twitter feeds of jokes

Hand me that Obama phone
Text me love notes
Lay my head to rest on a museum bench
And hope that they properly mummify me one day
So generations can learn from my broken bones
Dug from under man made mountains of ATMs and motherboards

I am alone
Self aware
Getting old

Capitalism is violence
They say it's all we know

I read about a time before prisons existed
Heard of an era before banks
Before civilians were born victims
Dreamt of a place with no cops
Where skin color was insignificant
Where you could love whoever you wanted
Because it's nobody's business

Fuck a world
Where justice is impossible
Where governments call cynics hostile
And equality is a Utopian concept

Fuck a world
That forces me to suckle its teat
Pay to breath
And charges legal fees for a chance to be free

If this is free
Somebody please beat the life out of me
(Just kidding….but seriously)

I will die an artist, an artifact, a bad joke
From a naive time when human beings still had hope

This will sound better when I'm dead (x3)
Everything sounds better when you're dead

8.Bite Through Stone (修改)

For every bicycle in China there's a
Cryogenically frozen embryo
That will
Wake up in a cold sweat
Run around the veteran's hospital
Wondering what gave birth to it

Then we'll sing the national anthem
While the government rounds up zygotes
In the latest titanium nets
So they will keep their baby mouths shut
And suck down freedom with the other runts

But I'm an impostor here
I feel it in my bones
And in the way that I have never cared
About American hope
Yes, you're an anomaly just like me
So let's fuck in the street
To show them what it's like to be free

You'll give birth on a highway
With fifty frozen babies on all sides

Curled up in their ice cube wombs
Sweet, closed eyed
We'll come up with their names one by one
Till every letter's used
And they've thawed out in the sun

Then we can sharpen swords in sync with local textile workers
And sew together sinew for our injured ally warriors
Building in solidarity beneath coniferous giants
Planning to shove spikes into the backs of sleeping tyrants
The subtleties of war are loud and so obnoxious
That they can shake stem cells out of test tubes and leave the deaf unconscious
Nobody ever taught us the most valuable lesson
Now there's a tragic lack of expression on the faces that we've dissected

We're impostors here
I know it in my soul
I also know that we can rip through the skin of monster's throat
I know that all our knuckles combined can break a mammoth's bones
And all these tiny teeth together can bite through stone

9.This Won't Last Forever (修改)

Every single breath that I've taken has created me
Endless thank you's to the women who raised me
Try to keep my head cool though life keeps burning me
Sorry that I never learned how to respect authority, forgive me
Mother I swear that I'm a grown man
You taught me how to walk holding my pinky in your hand
30 years later, bearded, ready for whatever
They can hold me down for now but this won't last forever
Promise I'll be back and better
Fallen 40 stories only bled
Been trampled down and beaten, left for dead
Gambled and I lost
Gambled and I won
Don't think that i would ever take those bets back, none
From the bottom of my heart I believe in what we're doing
And don't care if it's unattainable I'll still pursue it
Oh my God I'm sorry for the sins that I was born with
But a life without a single sin is simply boring
Forgive me

Any minute now all could be gone
But I know together we're strong
Any minute now all could be gone
Stay strong
Stay strong

Adolescent rage still swimming through my veins
Knew this world was unfair at an early age
Mother, I know they never paid you a proper wage
So thank you doubly for every sacrifice you made

If we reach the end of days or i ever lose my way
I'll follow crumbs back to you and will never stray

Loved ones found

Loved ones lost
Just know that I will never forget any of them, none

They can lock me up for now but the seeds were still sown
And when i make it out I know that they'll be fully grown

Never gave a shit about a boss or president
If we want some real change we need to make it with our friends

Back when I was 10, sang 'Fuck the Police'
20 years later - know exactly what that means

They made it a sin to believe in equality
Called it criminal to fight in solidarity
To stop me they're gonna have to bury me

Any minute now all could be gone
But I know together we're strong
Any minute now all could be gone
But together we'll still be strong

Barely fucking breathing I'ma keep fists swinging
Thank you Mother for teaching us to embrace our differences
Taught me to believe that everyone is worth the same
'They'll never take us out!'
I'll scream it till I hit the grave
I could give a fuck about another ephemeral trend
I'll never waste a single word trying to please them
One minute we're here
Next minute we're dead
It's all about how we will be remembered in the end
The end

10.Forever 33 (修改)

On the road again
Here's an obligatory reference to Kerouac
He was eating apple pie in a diner
I'm sneezing, sleeping on a rug with cats
Still trying to convince myself that exposure will fend away life long allergies
While waking puffy eyed as a boxer every other day of the week
These songs are spare change signs
Under rain
Dripping and smudged
Near the freeway entrance
New Haven Connecticut I - 91
I've gone on a mission
From a vicious dickhead God
Who loves to torture for fun
And I'll die trying to please him
This tour will never be done

I've gone from point A to point Z
From salt lake to Dead Sea
And I've lost faith in humanity
Though I badly want to believe
While conscious rappers sample 'I have a dream'
I'll discuss life with Latin Kings
Wondering what freedom means

In a cell with junkies detoxing

I could really give a shit about a critical opinion
If a CEO can make billions
Then the world we know is filth ridden
Some of us rock shows to make a living
Some of us rock coke to feed our children
Some of us flat broke
And we all know that the fast food dough won't cover 4 kids' clothes

Back on the road
Parole let me leave for a week
Out of prison but I still can't believe that they locked me for weed
Kingpin to the CTPD
Cause a rat told them that it was all meant for me

If Factor can finish this beat
Then the album is close to complete
Forever 33
Christ-nice like Ornery
Fake Four Till I stop breathing

11.Say Something (修改)

'Say something meaningful please'
It's been 3 years of stagnation, court dates, and fees
Wondering if I will go free

Nothing will satisfy me
Even if I burn this whole planet down it seems
Won't learn a thing
I'll die from risking

I've got friends who would rather end society
Because there's no way of fixing these flaws
And that's starting to make far more sense to me now
Cause we're lazy and used to what's wrong
It's been embedded inside us since our first breaths
We're destroying the world where we live
But I'm sitting here watching a T.V. in bed
Wondering why I lack happiness

Oh disappointing mouth
Say something more than
Another word about
How's your life's difficult

La la la la la la (x2)

更多更详尽歌词 在 ※ 魔镜歌词网
Life is all monotony
Sprinkled with some moments of unforeseen extremes
In between more sleeping

How will the prison showers be?
Will I have to punch somebody just to get clean?
Will there be something for me to eat?

All of us are just frightened roosters in a ring
Ready to pounce and fight anything
Though none of us will ever know what freedom is
We have certainly felt lack of it

Proverbs and clichés remind me that
I should learn to appreciate what I can get
But they're forcing us to live within our own shit
And I wasn't born to be a pig

Oh disappointing mouth
Hold your tongue
So the cops don't come and beat the words from you
Sing in tune now!

La la la la la la (x4)

12.Barely Alive (Featuring Sage Francis) (修改)

[Verse I:Ceschi]
Another year gone
Stomach fatter, beard fully grown
Waiting for the nothing and I'm awfully alone
Sunday went and visited your grave
Put a wild rose on the Virgin Mary engraved
Mother sang her song
Brother kneeled
And I just kept on wishing that the last year wasn't real
Teeth have sunk into my neck
Teeth have sunk into my neck
Build us a holiday out of stones and holograms
Holy relics and hummingbirds
All to fill this hollow man
I'm alright
I'm alright
But don't fuck with me tonight
These fists are clenched and I will fight
For every breath left in this life
All the mosquitoes in Saskatoon couldn't quite suck the tough out of me yet
Although I know I'm a three legged dog hopping and begging like Vietnam vets
These years were only appetizers swallowed quick and wet
But I will not forget the remnants that were left
Build us a holiday out of straw and out of sticks
Out of claws and out of bricks
Out of gauze and spit
We're alive, barely alive, but we're alive!

We're alive, barely alive, but we're alive!

[Verse II: Sage Francis]
I make a fist
Stare at it and think
'This is how big my heart is and I'm scared of it.'
'Til they use scissors to open my shirt
I go to work overworked
In the business of holding a smirk
Private jokes telepathically shared
From the present me to the past me
When I had more hair
The tub remains clogged
Sloshed through the memories of hooking up friends in need of jobs
Didn't stop them from requesting loans
It started with them calling me 'Boss' in a condescending tone
Put an indefinite extension on the zero interest
Better business bureau better be damn well prepared to be impressed
We're reporting back to duty, heavily wounded
Steadily losing our gains
The enemy moves in
Gotta choose your weapons wisely
When I bust open my rib cage and I unleash the fist that's beating inside me
It'll punch more than clocks
Check your peephole, cause there might not be more opportunity that knocks
Door to door I'm selling artificial tears for your eyes
Using a stethoscope just to hear your cries
We're alive, barely alive, but we're alive...
