Track Name: Unyielding Conditioning
Unyielding Conditioning
Tune out from all that's happening
Nobody deserves empathy
Nobody feels for me
We've all been trained by our worlds

I cannot see no one but me
No one can feel my emptiness
Everybody must fend for themselves
We've all been claimed by our worlds

But I have heard of ways
That say there's light beyond the darkness
And everyone can keep their children warm
And togetherness will guide us safely
Through all Storms

Unyielding Conditioning
Remove all trace of memory
No one needs justice anymore
No voices raised in anger
We've all been tamed by our worlds

But I have heard of ways
Where people topple all injustice
No one lives their lives on bended knees
And all bigotry is like a disease
Drowned in the sea
And all can hold their head up high!
Track Name: The Suffering
I saw the stars in your eyes
And I knew it was puppy school love
The sky's the limit
You saw the twinkle in mine
Then we both knew it was time to hold our breath
And run and get committed

We got lost in a sea of love and lust
With a galaxy of trust
We were soon committed
To each other like a mussel in a clam
To the movies to the mall glued together hand in hand

And we walked and ran through love land
Everything was fine
Until my baby took me for my very last dime

Bang, bang, shoot me dead
Thought my baby loved me
But I'd been mislead

My, my she sucked me dry
Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

Once I was a King
Now I'm wrapped around her finger
Like a diamond ring

The engagement ring
The wedding ring
The church bells ring
And the suffering

Understand I'm a man
Who believes in the glory of love
You're a fool and a sucka
True love is the light shining bright
From the Heavens, The Heavens above
You poor motherfucker

I believe, I believe it is better to trust
Even when I'm wrong
Be careful you're my brother
Than to let my fear drive me
From the home where I have belonged


She was my Queen to protect and serve
Then she threw me a curve
Skam skimmin' gold diggin'
Kick me to the curb

Bang, bang, shoot me dead
Thought my baby loved me
But I'd been mislead

My, my she sucked me dry
Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

Once I was a King
Now I'm wrapped around her finger
Like a diamond ring

The engagement ring
The wedding ring
The church bells ring
And the suffering

I know what they say on the street
She's a cheat and a thief and a liar
And everybody knows it
But she's my light and my love and my hope
And my only desire
Your anger can't control it

She broke the bank, then she took my car
That chick stole my heart

Should have known from the start

Bang, bang, shoot me dead
Thought my baby loved me
But I'd been mislead

My, my she sucked me dry
Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

Once I was a King
Now I'm wrapped around her finger
Like a diamond ring

The engagement ring
The wedding ring
The church bells ring
And the suffering
Track Name: Behind Closed Doors
Forward,forward, back, back, back
I've fallen and I can't get up and I'm slipping through the cracks
I'm in a crisis and I can't afford the prices
No means to feed my family, never mind the nices
No escape, no pleasure
I really can't seem to get my shit together
Can't protect my children from the weather
Me and my baby skin grows the toughest leather

--CHORUS X2--
Where do they go?
When it rains
Where do they go?
When it snows
Where do they go?
When the cold winds blow
Where do they go?
When we are warm behind closed doors

The children cry themselves to sleep
Another night with no food to eat
Tear soaked pillow is a step of concrete
It's enough to drive me to rob steal kill or cheat
You may ask how can you live this rigid life
No means to feed or house your babies and your wife
As I will, I sunk to depths you can't fathom
My lifes a blunder, it's no wonder why you can't imagine

--CHORUS X2--

REGGAE BREAKDOWN

Dem a go back down, dem a go way out
Back to this real world we live in
Dem a too far down, dem a too far out
For the real concern we're givin'
Dem all rob and steal, shoot up and kill
Is the common misconception
We all justify, we all ease our minds
With these deceptions

Now if life was a thing that money coulda buy
Then the rich man would make war and the poor man would fight
The rich mother would pity while the poor mother would cry
While the rich make excuses and the poor people die

Type a thing make I wanna go run and hide
Back to me condo over off of Rodeo Dr.
Grab a beer, try to remember a verse from the Bible
Put on me Tivo and see who's off American Idol

--CHORUS X2--

Track Name: Sunless Saturday
I see the pestilence outside my window
I see the dung heaps piled at least a mile high
I see the shards of shattered dreams in the street
I face the morning with my customary sigh

I hear the sounds of children laughing aloud
A stumbling wino has attracted quite a crowd
My breakfast finished now I brave the outside
But clouds have hidden all the warmth inside

Chase these clouds away
I hate this sunless Saturday

Freedom come
For us now
Light our sky
Burn away these clouds

Perhaps the charcoal grey and brown around me
Is just the mirror image of tainted soul
I think the sun will never visit my sky
Until the truth is seen by each and every eye

I see the helpless and I see the insane
I see a pauper singing in the pouring rain
I see the means of help elude us again
I think the sun will never visit me again
Track Name: Date Rape (Sublime Cover)
Let me tell you about a girl I know
She had a drink about an hour ago.
Sitting in a corner by herself in a bar in downtown Hell.
She heard a noise and she looked through the door.
And saw a man she'd never seen before.
Light skin light blue eyes a double chin and a plastic smile.
Well her eyebrow raised as he walked through the door
And took an empty seat next to her at the bar.
"My brand new car is parked right outside. How'd ya like to go for a ride?"
And she said."Wait a minute I have to think."
He said, "That's fine. May I please buy you a drink"
One drink turned into 3 or 4 and they left and got into his car
and they drove away someplace real far.

Now babe the time has come.
How'd ya like to have a little fun?
And she said." If we could only please be on our way, I will not run."

That's when things got out of control.
She didn't want to, he had his way.
She said, "Let's Go"
He said, "No Way!"
Come on babe it's your lucky day.
Shut your mouth, were gonna do it my way.
Come on baby don't be afraid,
if it wasn't for date rape I'd never get laid.

He finished up and he started the car
He turned around and drove back to the bar.
He said."Now baby don't be sad, in my opinion you weren't half-bad."
She picked up a rock, threw it at the car, hit him in the head, now he's got a big scar.
Come on party people won't you listen to me.
Date Rape Stylie.

The next day she went to her drawer, looked up her local attorney at law,
went to the phone and filed the police report and then she took the guy's ass to court.
Well, the day he stood in front of the judge he screamed, " She lies that little slut!"
The judge knew that he was full of shit and he gave him 25 years
And now his heart is filled with tears.

That night in jail it was getting late.
He was butt-raped by a large inmate, and he screamed.
But the guards paid no attention to his cries.

That's when things got out of control.
The moral of the date rape story, it does not pay to be drunk and horny.
But that's the way it had to be.
They locked him up and threw away the key.
Well, I can't take pity on men of his kind,
even though he now takes it in the behind.

That's the way it had to be.
They locked him up and threw away the key.
Well, I can't take pity on men of his kind,
even though he now takes it in the behind.

DATE RAPE

She didn't want to TAKE IT!
Track Name: Ma & Pa
There once was a Ma that wanted her
There once was a Pa that wanted her
I know she's confused,
she's my blood sister
She told me the blues as she start to shiver
Only a child in the middle of a war
She's a problem child now because of a divorce

Hey Ma and Pa
What the hell is wrong with ya'll
Hey Ma and Pa
What the hell is wrong with ya'll

Well there's a lot of money
For all the attorneys
It's just not a fight for child custody.
'Cause Ma and Pa's revenge
Is making little sister bleed
Fussin' and fightin' through a family life
Make her wanna take drugs and be out of line

Hey Ma and Pa
What the hell is wrong with ya'll
Hey Ma and Pa
What the hell is wrong with ya'll

Fighting for love on an angel's feather
Why don't ya'll get your shit together
Well it's three the hard way
Doin' it the wrong way
Ma hates Pa, Pa hates Ma
Little sister say,
"What the hey!"
Well there's an evil streak there
With a righteous leak I fear
That's why a child goes stray
To live a life another day
Mom and Pop in a family fury
Brother tried to say
"Little sister, don't worry."

Hey Ma and Pa
What the hell's wrong with ya'll
Hey Ma and Pa
Why'd the family rise and fall
Why don't you get your shit together
Track Name: Hide Behind My Glasses
I like to hide behind my glasses
When I feel uptight
I like to hide behind my glasses
When I'm trippin' in the strobelight

Hide behind my glasses
So I can give you all dirty looks
Like I hate you

Incompetent... Moron... Son of a... Son of a... Son of jerk !

In another world behind the shaded lens
Doctor Jekyll, Mr Hyde, Link-A-Side
In another world behind the shaded lens
Doctor Jekyll, Mr Hyde, Link-A-Side

I like to hide behind my glasses
So I can disappear to run and hide
I like to hide behind my glasses
So in myself I can confide
I like to hide behind my glasses
So I can make the boss the little man

I'll take my underdog supersauce pill
To beat the bullies and save the land
To beat the bullies and save the land
And sa-ave, sa-ave, sa-ave, save the land !

But when I take off my glasses
I shrink down again
They interrupt my psychedelic kingdom and
They think they can whip me
With my silver pen

So don't ask me why I put on my glasses again !
Don't ask me why I put on my glasses again !
I must repeat myself because I have to win !
So don't ask me why I put on my glasses again !

I like to hide behind my glasses (repeat)
When I'm trippin' in the strobelight (repeat)
Track Name: Give It Up
Are you getting tired of all the ravages of war?
Aren't you even sure what the hell you're fighting for?
All the broken dreams of men just break me down to pray --
For peace and understanding
We just can't go on this way

ALL-TOGETHER-FREE
ALL-TOGETHER-FREE-UNITED
ALL-HUMANITY
ALL-TOGETHER-FREE-UNITED

GIVE IT UP!!
GIVE IT UP!!
GIVE IT UP!!
GIVE IT UP!!

All the lies are broken all the truth is still the same
All the love and hatred in a world that lives in pain
Will we see the Winds of Time erode this curse away
We just got to stop this madness
We just can't go on this way

(Repeat chorus)

We live for Mother Country
We live for Mother Need
We're looking for the other side
But we're here to burn and bleed
We all know the Righteous --
The truth shall lead the way
But we all know the Darkness
So believe me when I say...

(Repeat chorus)
Track Name: Party At Ground Zero
Party at ground zero
A "B" movie starring you
And the world will turn to glowing
Pink vapor stew

Johnny, go get your gun,
for the commies are in our hemisphere today
Ivan, go fly your MIG,
for the Yankee imperialists have come to play
Johnny goes to Sally's house to kiss her goodbye
But Daddy says to spend the night
They make love 'till the early morning light
For tomorrow Johnny goes to fight
Johnny, Ivan, Ian,
everybody come along
for our nations need new heroes
Time to sing a new war song

CHORUS

Please do not fear
'cause Fishbone is here to say
(say what?)
Just have a good time
the stop sign is far away
The toilet has flushed
and green lights are a ghost
And drop drills will be extinct
Speedracer cloud has come
They know not what they've done
Sin has just won
The planet is a crumb

CHORUS
Track Name: Freddie's Dead
Hey, yeah, hey, hey
Love, love, love, love, love
Yeah, yeah !

Say Freddie's dead, huh !
That's what I said

Let the ??? said he'd send him home
But his hope was a rope but he should have known

It's hard to understand
There was love in this man
I'm sure all would agree
That his misery was his woman and things

Freddie's dead, huh !
That's what I said

Everybody's misused him
Ripped him off and abused him
Another junkie plan
Pushing dope for the man
A terrible blow but that's how it goes
Freddie's on the corner now

And if you want to be a junkie, wow !
Just remember
Freddie's dead

We're all built up with progress
But sometimes I must confess
You can deal with rockets and dreams
But reality, what does it mean ?

Ain't no damned thing said
'Cause Freddie's dead

Hey, yeah, hey, hey
Love, love, love, love, love
Yeah, yeah !

Hey, yeah, hey, hey
Love, love, love, love, love
Yeah, yeah !

All I want is some peace of mind
With a little love I'm tryin' to find
This could be such a beautiful world
With a wonderful girl
I need a woman, child

Why can't we brothers protect one another ?
No one's serious and it make furious

Freddie's dead
Don't be misled, just think of Fred
Don't be misled, just think of Fred

Everybody's misused him
Ripped him off and abused him
Another junkie plan
Pushing dope for the man

Freddie's on the corner now
And if you want to be a junkie, wow !

Freddie's dead
Freddy, Freddy, Freddy, Freddy !
Freddie's dead, huh !
