    Lyrics

    Here's a vision
    Imagine a whole globe made with precision
    Continents of brown soil with green grass
    That compliments deep seas and trees with multi-colored leaves
    Mountain ranges that survive through the ages
    Plus show expressions of time on rock faces
    Now gaze up towards the glorious sky
    Only appreciated by a powerful eye
    As I understand, man is to cherish the land
    As we coexist hand in hand
    But as time has past
    Man has created a vast

    Mass of trash that has the capability to smash
    Your natural desire to explore your state of being and
    Discover you fire
    For instance when a child is born
    It possesses no intelligence of hate or scorn
    But as it learns of hard ways
    It becomes tuned from its original nature
    As we destroy nature in the name of cash
    All justified by laws made by the legislature
    You never say 'cause that claim they aims to
    Seek justice but ain't it a shame
    That that isn't the case yo we all are so tame
    That we're all fair game
    That's why they got our name
    Address social security number
    Even though where you bought your last rest
    Or mattress have you saying
    "Oh that's just the way things are"

    Then I explain that you're so far from your core
    You need to explore
    I wake up in the morning in war and saw
    And go look for more
    Weapons being prepared for nuclear war
    And then when I found some no this is to god, hit
    The ground son
    With strong winds to make the clouds run
    Step up in the laboratory
    Keep it mandatory
    Their response: Inflammatory
    Now their dome's all puffed up
    'Cause they fucked up
    Give me the data chips
    I'll reverse gravity
    So mad they'll flip

    Show these fuckers the light
    The adequate side of the scene, natty dips
    Mankind should feel the effects
    As he rips through the environment
    Mash up the Earth's power as if
    It were required
    The whole things blowin' a cold heart
    Stand as he asks where the fire went
    Trapped in an Ice age and while you're defrostin'
    I kick open the door and let some Holocaust in
    Then I remain sober in the galaxy
    Take the form of the sun
    So I can shine emphatically
    Then I shed light on the tragedy

    Step aside just to make way for remorse and apathy
    Then I perform something you can all see
    As I change the climate from cold to balmy
    As temperatures rise
    I squeeze acid water out of the skies
    To burn out your eyes
    Cause you could never see what I devise
    And get your five lives and nine tries
    But usually nobody survives cause I
    Elevated far above and beyond
    So you could be bombed, crushed to dust
    You can be harmed
    You can be armed with shanks and tanks
    Bayonets, missile threats
    Yet I still launch lyrical text

    That gets so intense
    It could disassemble all of those other meds
    So you should fear what the god invents
    Since I was sent under the name of Lif
    Which means to uplift
    It's my never ending duty to attempt to shift your mind
    From one train of thought to a more positive state
    So then in turn you can create
    Control your own fate
    Rather than having those with wealth dominate and complicate
    Living to the point where we're all imprisoned
    People we should all pick our minds it's time!

    Look at how the world is designed
    It's major
    We should all walk out of our manger
    And start to educate the nearest stranger
    Ignorance has no remainder
    I manifest, prophesier visions of danger
    With seven lines I show you seven signs
    Time's of the essence
    Choose before you lose your physical presence
    Perpetuate wickedness or walk along the path of god
    The force from which we were all created
    Stand amongst prosperity
    Or fall devastated

    Another victim of hatred
    In a land where nothing is sacred
    Except for these thoughts that I share
    With no fear to make you all aware of the nightmare
    I see you puttin' in a little work but we're not quite there
    Climb out of your darkness, the light is quite clear
    We're still to concerned with jewels and hype gear
    But I'ma drop my thoughts until you open your eyes, arise
    It doesn't matter what your color creed race or size, arise
