3. The vagrant
4. Reach
5. Close minded
6. Vision







1. In time

The phone rings and I donít answer
Good news always waits
And I scream into the pillow
But I never shed a tear
So I tear away the blankets
My heart beats bleeding knuckles
In your eyes I feel the magnet
Falling to the floor I melt
I am higher than the mountains
I am lower than the dirt
All alone I sit and wonder if time will take away the hurt

For years I walked in circles
For a time I stayed within
In time I learned my lesson
Everyday my world still spins

Iím the man around the corner
Bottle in a bag
Numbing pain inside me inside
I step up into the sky
Thereís no room for the dreamer
The world has shut its eyes
Scratching icy fingers dig deep into my spine
Your train has come and left you and thereís no other on the way
Three days before the end of the month and I got no place to stay

For years I walked in circles
For A time I stayed within
In time I learned my lesson
Everyday my world still spins

Now Iím looking out my new window, cigarette in hand
See the empty faces scattered like the sand
Not ashamed of the way I feel
I know my world is real
But time and time again I run away
Not ashamed of the way I feel
I know my world is real
But time and time again I run away

For years I walked in circles
For a time I stayed within
In time I learned my lesson
Everyday my world still spins




2. Wast county hospital

ĎCause with society I never related
I was locked away, tied up and sedated
And there were others like me
Locked up by their families
When will they ever learn we canít live in their realities
But down deep inside I knew Iíd rise above
I knew Iíd be worth something
Someday if only just to love
They try to make you afraid
Structure the way you behave
Take all your dignity
Turned into a mindless slave
Look out from inside
Under fluorescent light
Ritalin and Thorazine had kind of dulled my will to fight

Cling to information
Not knowing if itís true
A quick evaluation
Experiment on you
Cling to information
Not knowing if itís true
A quick evaluation
Experiment on you

Cause with society I never related
I was locked away, tied up and sedated
And there were others like me
Locked up by their families
When will they ever learn we canít live in their realities
They try to make you afraid
Structure the way you behave
Take all your dignity
Turned into a mindless slave

Cling to information
Not knowing if itís true
A quick evaluation
Experiment on you
Cling to information
Not knowing if itís true
A quick evaluation
Experiment on you

Cause with society I never related
I was locked away, tied up and sedated

Cling to information
Not knowing if itís true
A quick evaluation
Experiment on you
Cling to information
Not knowing if itís true
A quick evaluation
Experiment on you




3. The vagrant

You have to help me with this theory of a nation
Iíd stand to greet you but Iíve sores upon my feet
I think Iíd rather stay sublime
You have the money to keep me alive for a day now
I hear the jingle and smell the ripple so sweet
I just donít care if Iím on time
You said youíd help me but you tell me youíre late for your train

Can you tell me why?
Iím left with no means to survive

My child looks at you and turns away from your stare now
Itís ok, heís just ashamed of the hunger in his eyes
I know the nights no friend of mine
Now Iím sifting through the garbage for my next meal

Can you tell me why?
Iím left with no means to survive

Will work for food you read so clear
The sign in front of me was my inspiration for the year

Can you tell me why?
Iím left with no means to survive




4. Reach

Plutoís third eyeís rising in Neptuneís cycle
Iíve searched the earth a thousand lives
No ones disciple
The sun is my right eye and the moon is my left
Thunder rides across the sky to the west

We dream the vast horizon
Underneath a desert sky
We reach into another world
And our souls will never die

I stride purified over miles of fire
Hypnotize my minds eye out of body fly
To the wind and sky dancing ghosts blow vision smoke
Blind lead blind to find the silent word I spoke

We dream the vast horizon
Underneath a desert sky
We reach into another world
And our souls will never die

Night sun can dawn helps you find the way
The fabric of a dream weaved into the veil

We dream the vast horizon
Underneath a desert sky
We reach into another world
And our souls will never die




5. Close minded

Day after Day the same old shit that people ask me
Doiní the style I do, no itís not an easy task for me
People ask, ďYo black, whats up with that rockín roll style with hip-hop buckwild?Ē
Sweatiní me Ďcause Iím doiní that material
I tell them itís hittiní, they donít listen, they donít hear me though
I ask them, ďCanít you find an open mind to relate to somethiní kind of different, or are you just afraid to?Ē

Youíre close minded
Youíre close minded
In other words youíre blinded
Let me take you on a trip and when your donethrough rewind it
Yeah Iím workiní hard, I donít mean in the back yard
But searchiní and striviní to find an open mind, enough to leave your brain scarred
Look at the horizon isnít it surprising to see your lifestyle expand right before your eyes and
Take a little chance on a change
And open your mind and come closer to the front of the stage

Youíre close minded
Youíre close minded

Youíre close minded
They deny it but donít listen
Try it donít fight it see what youíre missiní
Takiní a little hard rock crunch
Addiní some hip-hop, some funky bass and now you got a buckshot
Different style, versatile so much to get into
After a while a big smile, an open mind will bring you
Thinkiní about the I.N.P.U.T.
You know itís got to be the M.O.R.D.R.E.D.
But youíre close minded
In other words youíre blinded
Let me take you on a trip and when your done through rewind it
Yeah Iím workiní hard, I donít mean in the back yard
But searchiní and striviní to find an open mind, enough to leave your brain scarred

Youíre close minded
Youíre close minded
Youíre close minded




6. Vision

Walk within the region of confusion
Enter the corridors of illusion
Within the complex mind lurk memories
Events that shape our life
Their imagery

My vision is a part of me
My mind interprets all I see
A perception of reality
Create a world in which I see

Locked in side a private room, we are at home
So lost within ourselves
Existing alone
Beliefs we hold within us
Our conception
A private tunnel view of perception
We choose to Shape our own reality
Specific point of view no one can see

My vision is a part of me
My mind interprets all I see
A perception of reality
My thoughts distorting what I see

Sometimes purpose is lost
Weíre in the dark
Left with nothing to say
Nowhere to start
Try to reach an answer
We hope to find
Some small understanding of our time

My vision is a part of me
My mind interprets all I see
A perception of reality
Create a world in which I see
