Track Name: Shake
Thought, thought, thought, thought
Thought, thought, thought, thought
Calm the fuck down
You've got this now

The earth is swirling, my brain is bleeding
I watch myself become a demon
My eyes completely black
And I'm making a clean break
As I feel my body shake

Lost, lost, lost, lost
Lost, lost, lost, lost
Legs on phase lime
Can't keep track of time
Because the

Earth is swirling, my brain is bleeding
I watch myself become a demon
My eyes completely black
And the tears roll down my face
As I feel my body shake
Track Name: Price On Your Life
Fuck class, live fast
Ignore the price on your life
Fuck class
Make art, get high

Money, money, money
What this country's all about
The creative well is going
Through a drought
But lose that inhibition
Turn that perspective around
Inhale deep and make a sound

The class system kills creation
It's poverty or conformity
So ignore reality

Depression, cause your skill gives you no financial prospects
Purple Kush will put everything in context
Anxiety
Cause the power and the money's in the hands of the few
In this oligarchy
Track Name: Eat Your Leaders
Eat your leaders
Make them feeder, human feeder

Since the cows never invade
And the cows never enslave
I'll eat the humans
Eat the humans
Rip the tyrants from their homes
Gnaw the meat right off their bones
And eat the humans
Eat the humans

Eat humans, they're animals

Redistribute the wealthy
Split their limbs and then split their money

Since the cows never invade
And the cows never enslave
I'll eat the humans
Eat the humans
I'm the cannibal, smoking cannabis
And I've got the munchies for your dome
I'll eat the humans
Eat the humans


Marinate on that
Track Name: Living Wage
Full time job in the USA
Won't afford a place to stay
Living wage creates opportunity
Full time job in the USA
Won't afford a place to stay
Living on living wage means opportunity

No more mansions
Till we house the homeless
This wealth gap is atrocious

Ask for bread
If you're not fed
Take the bread

Record numbers
Live in New York shelters
Working jobs as bank tellers
