1. POLICE STATE

New York police state

Living in a police state
You know we hate you

New York police state
New York police state
New York police state
Living in a police state
You know we hate you
You know we hate you ahhh
Gulliani Gulliani Gulliani fuck you
Gulliani Gulliani Gulliani fuck you.........die!




2. I HAD ENOUGH

I see right through your games
I know what´s going on
You need a desperate change
You think you´re the only one.

You got no sanctuary - as far as i can see
You´ve got no power over me i disagree.

Set things straight - i´m gonna set things straight
I´ve had enough
You and me are gonna set things straight
I´ve had enough

I´ve got no time for this
My life is passing by
There´s nothing that i´ll miss
It´s time to say goodbye.

I´ve had enough
´Cause you´re too much
I´ve had enough
you´re just too much.




3. RIOT, RIOT UPSTART

Say you got two friends so tight with them
See them all running
They all want revenge
See them on the street
See them all around
Upset the system
Gonna burn it down

Riot! riot! riot! riot!

Take a swing, fight back
Chances that you take
Knock down, drag out
Stories all the same.
Street fight tonight
What you gonna do?
Someone's always running up behind you...

See them on the run with bullets in their head
See them all fighting
They all want revenge
You want a riot -
You want a fight - New York city is ours tonight

You better get ready - no time to mess around
You better get ready - cause there's no backing down




4. SIT AND WATCH

I sit and watch as time goes by
My ambitions are obsolete
what ever happened to the way things were!
The way things used to be.

Broken glass from a stolen car
drug dealers surround me
What ever happened to the way
things used to be?

I sit and watch you from my window
My rent check two weeks late
What ever happened to the working man!
He just does not get paid.

Integrity - my hopes, my dreams
I try to do what´s right, what´s right for me
Integrity - thoughts inside my head.
It seems i´m getting fucked
Until the day i´m dead.




5. BLOOD, DEATH AND TAXES

So close so far away
suspected so you say
They´ve got a place for me
I´m a displaced society.

I´m not looking for compensation
I want some justice
Tell you what they want from me
Blood, death and taxes.

Fed up - my hands are tied
Frustrated - down the line
Busted and out of time.
How could i have been so blind.

They won´t fuckin´ rest until i´m dead.




6. FRUSTRATION

What i don´t want to ever
Have to think about again
What i don´t want to ever
Have to think about again.
Well i don´t want you tell me
About what i know i gotta do
Well i don´t want you tell me
About what i know i gotta do.

Well i´m frustrated walking down the street
You don´t know what i´m thinking in my head
When i´m frustrated walking down the street
You don´t know what i really understand.

Is it something that you gotta say
Is it something that you gotta do
Is it something that you want from me.
Something for you.




7. SICKNESS

Well i'm feeling real sick - who's got the remedy ?
My life - under your authority
Can't see straight - no visibility
Break it down - to the first degree

God damn think i lost my head again
Can't stop this way of thinking
God damn think i'm over the edge again
Gotta figure out how to bring myself back
from insane

well you're getting me sick - who's got the remedy ?
My life's - no authority
I can't see straight - the dim reality
Break it down to the first degree.




8. SHADOWS

Civilized society they don´t know
What´s right or wrong
A generation out of touch
Can´t seem to get along.

My anger´s magnified
frustrations multiplied
I know what you won´t find - inside of me
Shadows of society - can´t be disguised
Shadows of society - all i despise.

Regulated thoughts
They move freely through your brain
You´ve got no alibis, time to plead insane.

Never claimed to be a prophet
Outspoken for our times
No money, more problems
Just sit and watch the world go by.




9. NOWHERE TO GO

Abandoned - nowhere can i turn
Fallen - a lesson to be learned

You hand me the blame, all this never ends
It´s always the same, i´ll get this never ends
All i know - got nowhere to go
Nothing to show - got nowhere to go.

Illusion - things they should be clear
Delusion - no doubt was ever there.

Whoah oh! - got nowhere to go
Left alone with nothing to show.
In the streets we´ve made a home
Our friends are all those we know.

Not guilty, i plead the fifth
Faced the consequences for the crimes i did.
People keep tryin´ to put me down
I´m right here i´m still around.




10. TRUST

Deceived by your control
Innocence betrayed as your mind has been
Forced to evolve in order to
Hide behind your pain.

Protect yourself from harm
When authority´s ignored and you
Have found that trust is lost
And gone and who will be
The strength we´re looking for.

Can´t trust them it´s all lies
How they dehumanize.

Throw your rules in my face
No one respects your ways
Ignorance is no excuse
As it all comes back to you
Too much too little too late
Some things remain the same.




11. MY LIFE

It's my life 1234
Everybody's got a price to pay
It's my life
Gonna do things my own way
It's my life
Get what's mine - take what's left
It's my life
Live my life with no regrets
It's my life

Everybody's got a right today
It's my life
Do what i do anyway
It's my life
At night i walk the streets alone
It's my life
And i might not feel like going home
It's my life

Everybody's got a price to pay
It's my life
Gonna do things my own way
It's my life
Get what's mine - take what's left
It's my life
Live my life with no regrets
It's my life.




12. IT'S TIME

Time has come now, can do anything
Gonna show you how i really am
Time has come now, ian say anything
gonna show you what i´m gonna plan.

In the end when it´s all said and done
I´ll be around, probably the only one
In the end when it´s said and done
Gonna have my time.

Time has time now - can try anything
Gonna show you how i really am
Time has come now - can be anything
Gonna show you what i´m gonna plan.

It´s time
My time
Our time
For everyone to know.




13. ROCK STAR

You choose the path you take
Yours was a big mistake
You put yourself at stake
´Cause you just try too hard to be real.

Used to be so hard
Wanna be rock star
Now i think it´s time to get back to.
What was once ideal.

´Cause you run your mouth
Always talk about
How you hang around
Who cares anyhow!
Always being down
When you come around
Who cares anyhow!

Whatever it takes to make
Whatever it takes to make you...
Feel this way - go on and dig your grave
Because you want things your way.
We don´t respect you anyway.




14. NOTHING'S FREE

There´s a price to pay, for what your wanna say
Another revolution, there´s no solution
In the summertime, in the streets of crime
Want a situation, one of desperation.

I´ve got, you´ve got
Who´s got the right to say - what´s for me
I´ve got, you´ve got - we´ve got an enemy.

There´s no sympathy, a world of apathy
In the name of peace, there´s no relief
Where did time go, on death row.




15. PRICE YOU PAY

Gettin´ sick of everyone around here
I don´t think you know or understand
All these people think they fuckin´ know me
Circulate the rumors again.

Think you want something
Don´t you know the price you pay
Don´t you know nothing´s ever gonna go your way.

Gettin´ sick of everybody´s breakdown
I don´t think they know or understand
All these fucking people try to play me
Now i´ve got to beat them at their games.




16. JAILBREAK

People out looking for another way
To fulfill their dreams
Never mattered much to me anyway
That´s what i believe.

I don´t care anymore
Just like i never did before

Find myself staring at the walls
Like a psychopathic man
Thinking about nothing at all
You´d never understand.




17. BULLET ON MOTT ST.

I know he had a lot on his mind
I know he put a bullet in his brain
Too many times i´ve tried to realize
He had a lot held a lot of pain.

I´ve seen a lot of fighting seen a lot of pain
Seen a lot of fucked up days
Seen a lot of fighting seen a lot of pain
Seen them all throw it all away.

Never knew i never seen the signs
Now i know i´ve got to take the blame
Too many times i tried to realize
You know he was a victim in pain.

A bullet on mott st.
Richie backfire lay slain.
