Track Name: Diamonds
You got diamonds on the soles of your shoes
Don't be walking up and down
These avenues without a clue
And doubt the truth

You should know that there are stars in your hair
Hoping that you realise
We need your smile
And your style
In bold italic and underlined

Ooo why
would you walk around
With your head hung low
Readjust your paradigm
And imagine
You were not so afraid
Of the words they say
Such a beautiful state of mind

Don't you know you're supafly
There's no one like you
You're a one of a kind

You got diamonds on the soles of your shoes
Don't be walking up and down
These avenues without a clue
And doubt the truth

You should know that there are stars in your hair
Hoping that you realise
We need your smile
And your style
In bold italic and underlined

Oh if Oh if
Not now then when
And if not you
Then who
Will do the do only you can do

Wish you could see
Who you really are
Them fingerprints in your palm
Were meant so you can leave your mark

Don't you know you're supafly
There's no one like you
You're a one of a kind

You got diamonds on the soles of your shoes
Don't be walking up and down
These avenues without a clue
And doubt the truth

You should know that there are stars in your hair
Hoping that you realise
We need your smile
And your style
In bold italic and underlined!
Track Name: World War Free
Politicians are too concerned with winners ain't they supposed to be referees
We know the doctors make a profit when they keep us from our coffins but don't cure disease
They're drug dealers with a license society's finest and what we want our kids to be
Our childrens schools spoon feed them but don't teach them how to make their own recipes

Now the sheriff's telling me to pull over pull over pull over
He suspect I'm smugglin common sense
Pull over pull over pull over
But that's a crime I'd happily commit

Got my foot on the accelerator revving the revolution
Yes we are rebels cause we won't revel in this illusion
Driving straight towards World War Free Free Freedom
Driving straight towards World War Free Free Freedom

We know recession ain't nothin more than fancy talk to describe a robbery
And in addition they're trying to manipulate us in the name of democracy
They've got the crew in their pocket and that's the news that we're watching so religiously
So when we lose which we do they can tranquilize you and me effectively

Now the sheriff's telling me to pull over pull over pull over
He suspect I'm smugglin common sense
Pull over pull over pull over
But that's a crime I'd happily commit

Got my foot on the accelerator revving the revolution
Yes we are rebels cause we won't revel in this illusion
Driving straight towards World War Free Free Freedom
Driving straight towards World War Free Free Freedom

Oh we are the one we've been waiting for
Oh we are the one we've been waiting for
Who will fight for us?
WE WILL WE WILL
Who will fight for us?
WE WILL WE WILL
Who will fight for us?
WE WILL WE WILL
Who will fight for us?
WE WILL WE WILL

Who will?
Track Name: Yayaya
They say unity is just another fairy tale
A word that describes something you and I cannot attain
They say to try is just a waste of our time
But from today we will pay them no mind

Remember when we were children
Before we knew there was a system
When we didn't want to listen
We put our hands on our ears
And with our mouths we would cry

Yayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayaya...

Apparently we can never have peace
'Realistically' it's impossible to achieve
They ignore us when we tell them that we believe
And accuse us of being too damn naive

Remember when we were children
Before we knew there was a system
When we didn't want to listen
We put our hands on our ears
And with our mouths we would cry

Yayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayaya...

What is livin for if harmony
Is a luxury we can't afford
See we can't afford to live in fear
In a hundred years we won't be hear

Yayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayaya...
Track Name: Bend & Break em
Got a dream that really don't let me sleep at all
Well I see myself doing things I ain't seen done before
When I try to tell people about it they look at me like I'm absurd
So quick to tell me why they think what I'm saying just won't work

Bend and break em
Pay no attention to all their rules
Bend and break em
Cause those who made em are people just like you
Bend and break em
Pay no attention to all their rules
Unless you bend and break em then you ain't making nothin new

For so long I tried to play it by the book
When should have relied on instincts and principles
So no more no more will I pledge allegiance to the status quo
From today on I'm taking up a brand new oath

Bend and break em
Pay no attention to all their rules
Bend and break em
Cause those who made em are people just like you
Bend and break em
Pay no attention to all their rules
Unless you bend and break em then you ain't making nothin new

Spoken:

Bend em break em
Push em together then pull them apart
Aplly pressure to em
Just see how they respond
Take a pin and prick em
see if they got nerve ending to em
Set fire to em
As a matter of fact strap em to some rockets
And launch them into outer space
And see how they behave when there is nothin to determine how much they weigh
Then bring back down and smash them in the ground
Into little pieces you can kick around
Pour blood sweat and tears on em
And see that they are made of nothing
Other than the illusion that they have authority
You are all you need
Cause you are oh so unique
So bend em break em
Don't be afraid of those who make em
BLESSINGS
