If you scared, say that you’re scared
if the air that you breathe isn’t shared
if the terror you see isn’t rare
fear isn’t fair
it’s realism, yeah
If you scared, say that you’re scared
if the air that you breathe isn’t shared
if the terror you see isn’t rare
it isn’t there?

Rome is on fire
Friars turned fighters their fibers expire
Piles of pyre stack higher and higher
Both sires and squires perspire and tire
I’m playin the lyre
Y’all playin the fiddle
Watchin the city burn stay in the middle
Caught in the linear
Saying some shit’ll do little I’m stayin fit prayin for dribble
rain is too fickle
the maidens they panic
pointing at pagans they say it’s satanic
naked and fainting get taken advantage
they prefer that over taken for granted
slain on the granite
the planet is pure
there’s no way to plan it we cannot be sure
is fire the sickness or is it the cure?
keep it outside there’s no way it endures
They’re stayin indoors

Are you on the mark are you on the Marxist?
Part of the mob or part of the monsters
Part of the job of a person is progress
Would you rather light candles or curse in the darkness?
Pardon my French
I’m startin to harden in part of my chest
The heart of an artist is hardly at rest
My eyes are a marksman the target’s a quest
Charred is my flesh
It’s been burnin for centuries mention me questioning destiny’s resting place entropy’s testing me
Who ordered disorder?
How’s your rapport with reporters?
You seem sorta borderline bored are you trying to slaughter everything you worked hard for
I’m so sorry you think it’s a job for me to be standin this booth
Choppin down trees grabbin fruit then I hand it to you

A lie is self abdication
Giving your reality away
Even worse is to sell fabrication
Can't settle for morality leeway
To lie to the world is to become a slave to the world
Truth is the sovereign message
Religion is self-realization
The essence of religion is ethics
If you're gonna be friends with god you gotta make the whole world your friend, or just stay alone
The more I reflect & look back on the past, the more I learn what I owe
What do I know? No. Nothing.
