I peer through the Smokescreen, looking at reality
My mind wide open coz man I can feel the gravity
Insanity, that is driven by the vanity
Of a lasting legacy left by humanity.
Lessons of the past not applied to the future,
The infection began deep within the suture.
The wound hasn't healed, watch the sickness spread
As the rivers dry up and run thick with red.
The vision of cataclysm, held tight within 'em
The vision takes shape but breaks from the schism.
Lost is assured when the might is aligned,
They don't occupy a place they occupy you're fucking mind.
We need changes, coz our phrases are frameless,
Some can't face this: Power is faceless.
So more than ever, we need to cure this disease
And change the way we view our own species.
We need more than TVs to see we can't spread like lice.
Enjoy the sea-breeze coz the air we breathe well it soon won't taste very nice.
We need direct action, we're way passed the crunch-time,
The joke is on us but we're still waiting for the punchline
It's lunchtime, but there's nothing to eat
Enjoy the heat, as you struggle to sleep.

Riddim's coming hard! This one’s stinking!
System got us locked down, many men sinking
Watch them run around, unaware, blinking
Open up your mind time to start thinking!

You're lost, you're dreaming and scheming but not believing
That even the smallest actions matter to them seeking higher meaning
Greedy men seemingly fuel the fiending that streaming til the breathing of the heathen's is heavin' and uneven.
Even when the chip are down, sound advice gets flipped around
High hope crash then burn as they hit the ground
Our place on this Earth, it can't go in reverse
It's always less for better, it's always more for worse.
We rode for free with the air of entitlement
Soberly we overly boast of enlightenment
The bright light hits blurring the acknowledgement
And leaving us wondering where the fuck all of the knowledge went.
Time waits for no one to to rise to the occasion,
Surrender is not part of the equation
So many of us need to act with distinction or march down the path to our own extinction.
