2. Crooked Figurehead

You lied connived and pressed flesh till 1600 was
your address.
The chameleon at the podium whose words cause pandemonium.
A nation under stress, you must confess about an
executive mess.
You want me to believe; like Copperfield only tricks
up your sleeve!

Once a ho' always a ho', u keep wheeling and killing
at will.
Ever since you took oath you keep feeding the people
fake hope.
Your platform's weak, plus you're a thief, you need
to be impeached.
Mysterious deaths, illeagal funds, oh what a mighy
web you've spun!

Crooked Figurehead.
Who do you think you're fooling?
Crooked Figurehead.
Who do you think you're...
Crooked Figurehead.
Who do you think you're fooling?
Crooked Figurehead.

No screening for cabinet memebers, they just hire
family members,
suicide a tight white lie from the CIA to the FBI.
Janet Remo to the rescue, protected your boss with
a flaw in the law.
Chelsea's fled the nest,
Hillary's pissed, her daddy runs the biggest gang,
better resist.

Once a ho' always a ho', u keep wheeling and killing
at will.
Ever since you took oath you keep feeding the people
fake hope.
Your platform's weak, plus you're a thief, you need
to be impeached.
Mysterious deaths, illeagal funds, oh what a mighy
web you've spun!

Crooked Figurehead.
Who do you think you're fooling?
Crooked Figurehead.
Who do you think you're...
Crooked Figurehead.
Who do you think you're fooling?
Crooked Figurehead.

I heard 55.50 to ride Air Force One and have some
fun
Can I rent a room in the White House, invite all
my friends and party out?
You've given phat deals to Camp David, but you have
to be crime-related.
Diplomats get the welcome mats 'cause when you're
finished in office you're liven phatt!

Once a ho' always a ho', u keep wheeling and killing
at will.
Ever since you took oath you keep feeding the people
fake hope.
Your platform's weak, plus you're a thief, you need
to be impeached.
Mysterious deaths, illeagal funds, oh what a mighy
web you've spun!

Crooked Figurehead.
Who do you think you're fooling?
Crooked Figurehead.
Who do you think you're...
Crooked Figurehead.
Who do you think you're fooling?

Smart.
Move to the T-O-P.
Adopted Republicans Foreign Policy.
You make it look real bad for the Presidency!


3. Trick

So you're leaving me out of your reindeer games 'cause
don't have quite enough fame.
Lame your excuse, here take the noose, no use, no
spine,
Your trickin' everytime tipping around those thoughts
that are really on your mind,
But we got that cookie cutter going on.
Green machine stealing your dreams, selling yourself
short to grab the quick cream.

Rebelling and yelling but really who is the machine,
Not part of your scene or buying into your routine.

Trick!
I won't be tricked again.
Trick!
I won't be tricked again.
No.
Trick!
I won't be tricked again.
Trick!
I won't be tricked again!

Let me see.
Conspiracy you step to me then challenge I manage
to separate the facts from emotion,
I get the notion you got a dose of the potion.
In the backseat of the pimpmobile u adapted your
style for mass appeal,
Sign your name and let's close the deal.
Like Ned Flanders' running hell, excuse me while
I curse the fools you failed!

Rebelling and yelling but really who is the machine,
Not part of your scene or buying into your routine.

Trick!
I won't be tricked again.
Trick!
I won't be tricked again.
No.
Trick!
I won't be tricked again.
Trick!
I won't be tricked again!

Rebelling and yelling but really who is the machine,
Not part of your scene or buying into your routine.

Trick!
I won't be tricked again.
Trick!
I won't be tricked again.
No.
Trick!
I won't be tricked again.
Trick!
I won't be tricked again!


4. Assassination Of A Pop Star

Circling a face a favorite fanzine talking shit as
I load the magazines.
.30-.30 is oiled and ready blunted so you know the
nervers are steady.
Got a backstage pass all access packin' a gat where
it's strapped you can't guess.
Slippin' a mickey to the crew and security aiming
the red dot at the targets nine spot.

I got you in my cross hairs, the situation ain't
fair!
I sent you all warning notes, but to the press it
was a joke.
The situation ain't fair, I got you in my cross hairs!
You all make me sick, hold still while the gun goes
click.

City to city I'm stalking you but you think I'm following
the group.
I'm a groupie that you can trust as I mount C-4 under
the bus.
Cianide in your rider fruit snuck the blow gun darts
by the black suits.
Booby trapped the stage. The crowd will be
dazed when you go POP in a big ole blaze!

I got you in my cross hairs, the situation ain't
fair!
I sent you all warning notes, but to the press it
was a joke.
The situation ain't fair, I got you in my cross hairs!
You all make me sick, hold still while the gun goes
click.

Oh shit, I've been shot, I'm about to go into shock.
Yo, tell me what I am supposed to do,
When I sold my soul I thought I paid my dues.
Yo, listen, I don't want to die.
How much to live this time?
Out the barrel in my mouth, no I won't.
No.
No, Please Please Don't!!!!!!!

I got you in my cross hairs, the situation ain't
fair!
I sent you all warning notes, but to the press it
was a joke.
The situation ain't fair, I got you in my cross hairs!
You all make me sick, hold still while the gun goes
click.


5. Rising

Rising!

Rising!
Rising!
Rising--we're so bright we are blinding.
Rising--somehow we keep reminding.
Rising--grafted from a hybrid breed.
Survivalist unique and hard as concrete

I'm not going to let you let me die.
So damn easy when you're living a lie.

Haven't you heard cream rises to the top.
I hope you know we ain't never gonna stop.
Some cock blocking, others coping much love.
To the fans 'cause we're still rocking.

Breaking free up out of this cesspool.

I'm not going to let you let me die.
So damn easy when you're living a lie.

Haven't you heard cream rises to the top.
I hope you know we ain't never gonna stop.
Some cock blocking, others coping much love.
To the fans 'cause we're still rocking.

And I'm rising.
And I'm rising.
And I'm rising.


6. Southern Pride

South of the Mason-Dixon finger-lickin' good
Welcome to my neighborhood
Congeniality, hostpitality go hand in hand,
But don't dis a Southerner, we're quick to take a
stand.
The South will rise again already there Olympic City,
'96 was our year.
The weather's swell, on racism we won't dwell
'Cause everything north of us they won't tell.

I've got that Southern pride.
I've got that Southern pride.
Shine my Southern pride let it shine.
I've got that Southern pride.
I've got that Southern pride.
Shine my Southern pride let it shine.

We have an L.A. east of the Mississippi,
Lower Alabama, we're from Atlanta.
The Carolinas, there's a no coast finer than our
coast,
You know the South rocks the most.
We love wrestling and NASCAR, too.
People down here make mean barbecue.
From Freaknik to Bike Week my religion is unique,
My Southern belles like honeysuckle.

I've got that Southern pride.
I've got that Southern pride.
Shine my Southern pride let it shine.
I've got that Southern pride.
I've got that Southern pride.
Shine my Southern pride let it shine.


7. Enemy Territory

We're globetrotters only smoking guns are hotter
Stick in the Mojo you scream and holler
Better tap out before we break that collar
Rules out the window like N.W.O.
Imagine this Indian reservation
You trust total annihilation
Scalping that ass from head to toe
Hanging the carcass up after every show

All I see is red
A 90-minute homicidal rage
All I see is read
We enage in acts of rampage.
All I see is red
A 90-minute homicidal rage
All I see is read
We enage in acts of rampage.

Take my rage
Go and setup your head (?)
Take my rage
Go and setup your head (?)

You're my best friend before we enter the stage
Hear the first note note bust like a 12-gauge.
Yo listen we are on a different mission you think
we're in.
You think we're a standing competition
Mr. Estate is down with first circle
Break full time and ????????
Step on the ??? for the ???????
Break ya off somethin' like Evander Holyfield!

All I see is red
A 90-minute homicidal rage
All I see is read
When I enter the stage we enage in acts of rampage.
All I see is red
A 90-minute homicidal rage
All I see is read
We enage in acts of rampage.

Take my rage
Go and setup your head (?)
Take my rage
Go and setup your head (?)

All I see is red
When I enter the stage a 30-minute homicidal rage
All I see is read
When I enter the stage we enage in acts of rampage.
All I see is red
30-minute homicidal rage
All I see is read
We enage in acts of rampage.


8. Back In The Saddle

No trust, love sux, hard work, false words,
Hard crushed, boo hoo, who jerked who?
Broke my heart, fell apart, but like Steve Austin,
Bigger and better now.
No longer a fool, don't think that it's cool,
Fucking with jezebels, naw wedding bells.
I tell the trooper don't let her scoop ya, she's
bound to dupe ya
Then I got my teflon vest on baby.
No more trick ass ho's driving me crazy.
I cleared my vision,
I'm focoused and locked
get off my jock
you used to clown
you knocked me down but I'm...

Back in the saddle.
You knocked me down but I'm...
Back in the saddle.
You knocked me down but I'm...
Back in the saddle.
You knocked me down but I'm...
Back in the saddle.

Lonley woman, seeking passion,
Sex over, psycho drama,
Hard crushed, boo hoo, who jerked who?
Like wild men I'm gonna rebound and I'm clowning
you stupid wench,
Making me sick, you're in my mix, you need to fix
your whole personality casualties,
Causing fatalities, the rate gets high.
I pull the switch on your silly sadilly ass and all
you players taking notes,
We're teaching class.
Used and abused, hope you don't lose,
Emotionally clowned, you knocked me down but I'm...

Back in the saddle.
You knocked me down but I'm...
Back in the saddle.
You knocked me down but I'm...
Back in the saddle.
You knocked me down but I'm...
Back in the saddle.

Here stand alone, don't need another clone,
Check out the aftermath of my broken path.
Still you do not see how fragile I may be,
Instead you want to play games and get into my head
Here stand alone, don't need another clone,
Check out the aftermath of my broken path.
Still you do not see how fragile I may be,
Instead you want to play games and get into my head

You knocked me down but I'm...
Back in the saddle.
You knocked me down but I'm...
Back in the saddle.
You knocked me down but I'm...
Back in the saddle.
You knocked me down but I'm...
Back in the saddle.


9. Dry

I am the rock star, I am the icon, long-haired, tattoo,
freak of the weak.
I am the rock star, I am the icon, long-haired, tattoo,
freak of the weak.
Tell me what I am supposed to do?
Keep believing while you're underachieving!
Busting my cookies, treating me like a rookie
I'll be damned if I don't take a stand.

You can't hear what I hear,
Those distant boos and faint cheers.
You can't see what I see,
So tell me why do you decieve?

Keep my head dry.
I'm gonna keep my head dry.
When the blood begins to rise,
I'm gonna keep my head dry.

Rah rah sis boom bah
Green eggs and ham, blah blah blah.
You're mouth can't run with a broken jaw.
Rah rah sis boom bah
You got me caught up in the name game.
Why?
Cause the competition is lame.
Liar, liar, pants on fire, creating schemes
to destroy my team.

You can't hear what I hear,
Those distant boos and faint cheers.
You can't see what I see,
So tell me why do you decieve?

Keep my head dry.
I'm gonna keep my head dry.
When the blood begins to rise,
I'm gonna keep my head dry.

I feel like the number one draft pick
In the league of silver tounge tactics.
The wet willy all in my ear,
We keep sandbagging trying to stay clear.
Been sentenced to do it yourself,
Working hard to keep the product on the self,
But you wanna flood my brain cells with bad news,
Who's who and what you think is cool.

Keep my head dry.
I'm gonna keep my head dry.
When the blood begins to rise,
I'm gonna keep my head dry.
When the blood begins to rise,
I'm gonna keep my head dry.


10. Throw The Switch

Repeat offender, burn that ass to a cinder.
You molester, striking fear and drawing tears.
Scars are deep the innocent you had to cheat.
Capital Punishment should be your favorite treat.

Dead Man Walking Shaved Head Last Prayer No Remorse
4... 3... 2... 1... Throw the Switch!

The grim reaper is gonna be your cheerleader.
You're on the list of the top ten rapists.
Home invasion you need no persuasion.
Doing the crime, to hell with the time.

Dead Man Walking Shaved Head Last Prayer No Remorse
4... 3... 2... 1... Throw the Switch!

Dead Man Walking Shaved Head Last Prayer No Remorse
4... 3... 2... 1... Throw the Switch!


11. Hang'em High (Loser's Theme)

About 5 years been hanging with this fool
The vibe was down everything was cool.
420 buddy most our times were nutty
I guess over time our friends get funny
Money feeds needs, needs feed greed
PH trees he had to puff see.
Flipped on me into a backstabbing breed
Transformed my man into a wannabe!!!!!!!!

I say we hang 'em high!
Used to be the man, now you're just a backstabber
My sense of trust knocked down to a lower level.
Digging a hole, you probably stole the damn shovel.

You used to be my friend, but now you're just a backstabber.
My sense of trust knocked down to a lower level.
Digging a hole, you probably stole the damn shovel.
You wanna be the man on top, but you got no skills.
You wanna be the man on top, you need a miracle pill.
Even new friends I back to the end reached out through
words.
They had the nerve called off the dogs,
Didn't want to be involved.
But saving the friend's life still got cut by the
knife
Spineless swine to had to turn over much too soon
for things to blow over.
Wishing so hard to be down with a scene transformed
my man into a wannabe!!!

I say we hang 'em high!
Used to be the man, now you're just a backstabber
My sense of trust knocked down to a lower level.
Digging a hole, you probably stole the damn shovel.
You used to be my friend, but now you're just a backstabber.
Used to be the man, now you're just a backstabber
My sense of trust knocked down to a lower level.
Digging a hole, you probably stole the damn shovel.
You used to be my friend, but now you're just a backstabber.

You wanna be the man on top, but you got no skills.
You wanna be the man on top, you need a miracle pill.

You wanna be the man on top, but you got no skills.
You wanna be the man on top, you need a miracle pill.

Used to be the man, now you're just a backstabber
My sense of trust knocked down to a lower level.
Digging a hole, you probably stole the damn shovel.
You used to be my friend, but now...


12. Tears

All that money there shouldn't be no tears, dry your
eyes sfter so many tries.
Celebrity status you're the saddest, wasn't that
O.J. case one of the maddest?!
Fallen stars disregard, some lead by example, others
go too far.
Until behind bars was in the realm of untouchables
but you got touched now shut up!

There's only so many, there's only so many, there's
only so many tears that you can cry.

Bang bang biggie Tupac the bully master scheme
Design buy a higher being cry and whine, but nobody's
dropping.
Dime feel no sorrow cause they knew they weren't
promised tomorrow
Propaganda wrecking you like Panzers
But like the desert fox you can be destroyed.
Sneaking up on you like the Trojans did Troy.
We couldn't trust Marv like the barber named Floyed?!

There's only so many, there's only so many, there's
only so many tears that you can cry.
Cry baby cry, dry your lying eyes
Cry baby cry, with every tear I fear
Cry baby cry, what a nice try
Cry baby cry, what's that in your eye?
A lie formulating, you've been busted this time!

There's only so many, there's only so many, there's
only so many tears that you can cry.


13. Pipebomb

I'm another coward on a pointless mission hometown
militia.
The silent majority just got louder
No good with words just a fuse and powder.
Justified homicide in my eyes human cost gets my
point across.
Few as we are numbers increasing cleaning the streets
vigilants policing!

I'm misguided and weak-minded,
I've got a timer and a pound of C-4.
I sentence you to death, eventhough we never met
I got the Ryder truck loaded.
In the name of liberty there's always casualties
...loading, exploding,
I'm a coward with a pipebomb

Coward!! Coward!! Hey!! Hey!!
Coward!! Coward!! Hey!! Hey!!

Fear breeds ignorance and then hate
I feel I'm god so I decide your fate.
168 1st degree of murder not one scream I heard of.
Atlanta my test site city, I turn to the 12-man comittee.
What's the proper punishment for me suffering or
the death penalty!!

I'm misguided and weak-minded,
I've got a timer and a pound of C-4.
I sentence you to death, eventhough we never met
I got the Ryder truck loaded.
In the name of liberty there's always casualties
...loading, exploding,
I'm a coward with a pipebomb

Coward!! Coward!! Hey!! Hey!!
Coward!! Coward!! Hey!! Hey!!

I've already seen it,
I've seen myself dying.
I damn all the innocent 'cause I've already killed
them

I'm misguided and weak-minded,
I've got a timer and a pound of C-4.
I sentence you to death, eventhough we never met
I got the Ryder truck loaded.
In the name of liberty there's always casualties
...loading, exploding,
I'm a coward with a pipebomb

Coward!! Coward!! Hey!! Hey!!
Coward!! Coward!! Hey!! Hey!!
