Preparing for Capture 2

by Illogic & Blockhead

Intro 01:34
Heartless 03:20
Verse 1 Everything is happening faster than reaction time. Concrete bipedal’s tried to run before their crawling fine. Change is what you make of it. The cusp is where that action grinds. Never be too arrogant to recognize the battles neigh. Concentrate the battle cry infiltrate the ladder climb. You always said that you were partisan, but tell me where your heart has been. Now you’re trying not to cry but cried wolf a thousand times. So you stand alone when the revolutions televised. Simpleton with Ritalin candy addiction glamorized. Failure is a virtue when it’s bottled up and advertised. More conformed with every lie more confused with every try, but you don’t want to start again so tell me where your heart has been. I am where the sky mates with the cityscape. Horizon is my resting place, scuba when the levies break. There’s nowhere to run when ego chooses to annihilate. Try to take a chance if you can stand where the piranha wait, where they congregate to feast and dominate. If the truth can make you cringe tell me where your heart has been. Sanity unstable as the shifting plates the Earth in cases. Hide vanity with grace to relish in the look on your face. Shattering the foundation placement of each mask you make. Laughing at the lack of competence in each step you take. There’s no hope for clean slate if the mirror intimidates. Love isn’t a part of him so tell me where your heat has been. Verse 2 Creeping up the mountain touting Lightning rod and tackle box Hope to hook a destiny to offset the after shock Vigilante movement master silence as the Vatican Humble with perfection here to crumble the establishment Cynicism Diligent you drip with empty promises Sun is on horizon though the path you made is Ominous Peace is in our hearts with every spark your spouting evil Attempt to build your Idles on the backs of people Monetary malfunction Melancholy Focused Force feeding fear till living legacy is hopeless Breathing is a burden herding laughter of the prominent Called to action Lungs filled with passion till were Dominant Vibrate the elders with vigor till they wake up Remove the mask you hide behind no time to fix your make up Whos going to save you when the sky falls It only takes an open heart a prayer and a phone call Verse 3 Systematic relevance of basking in the lime light Progression is a burning bush each consequence is finite Tomorrow is an open door protected by your hindsight Forge ahead with fore site just be conscious of the brake lights There’s no accident all that happening for you tonight You rocked you favorite Cardigan but tell me where ya heart has been Quality control awarded stamping of approval The Flight you boarded doesn’t have the comfort that you’re used to You feel so out of place you find a pace and hope is sooths you Quasi Queasy stomach easy turbulence so brutal Twists and turns abundant all the pendants hope they lose you And find someone your smarter than to tell me where your heart has been I am where the lightning flashes Speaking to the Masses What you see is what you get no rosy colored glasses Faith Full coverage Liable protect from ego crashes Signal flair alert the family structures burned to ashes Novice mastered round of applause from thunder clapping Trying to find that spark again but don’t know where your heart has been Came to earth to go about the business of my father Perfection is impossible forgiveness is the mantra Avoiding the divisive that try to divide and conquer By injecting the distractions of the all mighty dollar Can you be my brother no matter the color of my collar? Your talking the right talk let’s just hope you have a heart
Dreamin 03:15
Verse 1 Now lets attempt to keep the failure to a minimum Immersed within a revolution birth of the continuum I live to breath my dream will shed blood to keep a promise You can lead the flocks to harvest if you prove to be dishonest Gathered all my pennies to purchase a personal rainbow Just as a reminder that the storm will always pass But I think eventually I’ll lose my marbles If they don’t lower the price of living but they keep raising the price of gas Automated crooks personify our deep desires hardly shook but look they got us burning book in Kendal fire And ever so subtly diluting our freedoms subtleties Positioning undertow pitfalls hoping for no recovery “Let keep em walking in circles around the Ballot box Cause no matter the choice they make we puppeteer the aftershock And if they ever doubt that human rights have been depleting Just open your eyes we enjoy plain sight when feeding.” I rose to the occasion one pedal at a time Today my Journal entry’s titled Fight and that’s the best advise I’ve heard this week There’s no time for laughs comedies divine When you clock in be sure to bow to the shine oh my god I must be dreamin Hook: Wake up Snooze is not an option There waiting for you to give up and toss the towel in But if we stand up rasie a fist and say no more One day we’ll live it up along the sea shore…(Repeat) Verse 2 I’m conscious of the findings persevered the path to porridge Halt the laugh observing fear a constant refrain of the chorus these days Their love is wrapped inside a lovely box of bankrupt And I’ll continue painting poems perfectly while handcuffed I’m mesmerized by all the merciless delusional Standards Of morality the creep into your purchases Unusual patterns of our cultural Iconic figure heads That hardly make it to old age it so Ironic Look, I’ll extend my vocal just so you can save your voice No I don’t know but I’ll sacrifice my life to save your choice They Can Never say illogic sold his soul to save face But when I sell my car I’ll save my License plate just in case “Well burn em at the stake and name him heretic He now investing hope where discouraged and disparaged live We’ve buried sunshine 6 feet beneath the soil sealed tomb He now arrived with picks and shovels to exhume” We’re placing sunshine in a stormy sky Today my Journal entry’s titled Live and that’s the bet advice I’ve heard in weeks Forgive me if I smile my happiness is laminated After this we hunt then execute the wrath of hatred
Precautionary Measures Birth a failure to communicate Hatred is a dish best served on a platinum plate Hes here to smile and wave to the ocean paparazzi flash crops reality's emotion Head for the hills though we walk through the valley For the shadow of deaths all around so don't crowd me I'm Claustrophobic need room to breath They act as if they want the role but scared to take the lead Masterpiece theater Feature presentation Glitz and glamor show a panoramic view of desperation Replicate the "Training Day" Give statuettes for evil Pedestals for villains heroes flop in the sequels I'm Only built for cult classics Half baked on a full stomach bleeding out of habit Believe in your circles but break from you boxes Cause they can only hurt you when you limiting your options Shoot for the stars till they fall from the sky That impact makes the eye of Jupiter cry Every point is scary cause life is but a dream So every meal prepared isn't exactly what it seems Try to check the serving size When they commence for feeding you don't act surprised There's no surprise when they regurgitate Because precautionary measures birth a failure to communicate.
Don’t even talk to me if you ain’t trying to change I’m looking to evolve you content to stay the same I couldn’t picture my master pieces in a frame Cause I think outside the box cut the lox because it was time Weightless here to stay like Diabetes Searched the planets and universes can’t find a liver species Never been a mac but never pc Politically incorrect when I project whatever’s on my mind Beautiful wife and kids no more to ask for Lookin to travel the globe and collect some stamps on my passport Buildin for my future past yours You careers my last resort after I resort to violence So keep your eyes open theses no Zolpidem allowed I’ve magnified my focus on the goals that I’ve compiled Stolen moments of common sense I extend beyond the crowd Pause for amazement They can only resort to silence Tried to get a head and disregarded every body Had to choose either uncharted path or carbon copy Standing stern on a promise Medusa couldn't rock me You built your house on sand and can't understand why your sinkin Martyrdom Hardly comes to a peasant Only the gifted in attendance raise your hand if your present I'm a student of life and while class is in session I absorb the message from every lesson given while day dreamin
Wing Span 02:47
I promise to only recall the smiles you offer in dreams To Never again allow Doubt to weigh down my wings Make sure to spread full span and glide into destiny The dog days will never get the best of me Lets commit to living a life and not just being alive 3.7 degree of difficulty swan dive no splash If ever you cry I’ll bottle your tears Just to swallow your pain in the blink on an eye I’ll lasso the stars just hold out your hands I’ll gift-wrap your dreams if given a chance I’ll deliver the sun just open the door The Oceans yours if you want just guide me to shore I’ll paint you a legacy just hold my hand I’ll write you a universe if given a chance Don’t miss this opportunity to open the door The My love is yours if you want it guide me to shore I promise to recall the laughter you offer in dreams To be your crutch when ever needed by any means Lets magnify the success in learning from failure Then happiness gets more familiar Lets commit to living a life and not just being alive Enjoy the fruits of our labor and not just survive If ever you cry I’ll bottle your tears Just to swallow your pain in the blink on an eye
