This is a song for the greatest land in the world Yeah this is a song for America This is a tune for the land I love Yeah this is a tune for America Sea to shining sea, a shining land for you and me Woah, you better believe it's America So if you do not like the words I'm singing right now You can suck my nuts Cause I live in America Yeow!!! We were born in the heartland baby, and you got reason to fear it Cause we know bullshit when we hear it A revolution of mind, and now is the time To take back our choices and our spirit So thought police beware You have no jurisdiction here Home of the free, land of the brave Place where I can say whatever I want to say You sing to the sheep, feed them lies to believe You ruin things beyond repair In your world wrong is right, up is down, black is white You have caused nothing but despair So thought police beware You have no jurisdiction here Home of the free, land of the brave Place where I can say whatever I want to say Anything at all... We have been occupied, the pied piper lied Their job is to divide... Their job is to divide And there are places still today Where you can not say what you want to say And there are tyrrants who oppress The truth which causes them distress But thought police beware You have no jurisdiction here Home of the free, land of the brave Place where I can say whatever I want to say

Rock n roll rebel you might be the devil and you must take a stand Rock n roll rebel you can't be defeated cause you're the frigging man Rock n roll rebel fights for a cause cause causes need fighting for You must come correct or the rock n roll rebel will show you the frigging door Born on the Bayou, raised by wolves, I'm a seventh son When I could talk my mamma done told me “Boy you're the chosen one” Before the Lord I testify, I was born to run Rock n roll rebel you might be the devil and you must take a stand Rock n roll rebel you can't be defeated cause you're the frigging man I hit the road on a motorbike, ride away my sins Risin' moon and the howlin' wind, I come around again Lawman lookin' out for me, Lord but he don't stand a chance Cause underneath a blood red sky, baby I was born to dance Rock n roll rebel you might be the devil and you must take a stand Rock n roll rebel you can't be defeated cause you're the frigging man Rock with might, rock so tight, rock it right, rock tonight... Rock n roll rebel will fight for a cause because causes need fighting for You must come correct or the rock n roll rebel shall show you the frigging door Rock n roll rebel you might be the devil and you must take a stand Rock n roll rebel you can't be defeated cause you're the frigging man

Here cometh the law man, you had best prepare Here cometh the law man, you had best beware Kickin' butt for a livin' the first or second on the scene And if you deal your drugs in the wrong neighborhood You'll see the man get mean Rock n Roll Sheriff, you shall stand your ground Vanquishing foes at lightening speed While barely movin' around With the tail o' pony proudly on his head Shall he make the blood of the unjust run red Rock n Roll Sheriff, you shall stand your ground Vanquishing foes at lightening speed While barely movin' around Sheriff startin' a brawl in an Indian shawl Sheriff throwin' a dude through the drywall You causin' trouble in this town boy? I know the man to put you down Karate chop to the throat In a leather overcoat 10-4 Roger from the squad car Sweetest licks emanating from his guitar And when the Sheriff has been displeased It's then that you shall receive The type of blow that will cleanse your soul That you may be redeemed Rock n Roll Sheriff, you shall stand your ground Vanquishing foes at lightening speed While barely movin' around

Ankle bands are in place, wrist bands are tight The crisp morning air reassures me that I'm doin' it right Exercise without breakin' a sweat And if I blow on by you don't get upset Headphones are on and then I'm jammin' to rhymes Keepin' ground shoe contact at all times Most doctors tend to agree speed walking is a great form of exercise In this way myriad health benefits are realized Be it indoor or outdoor, all I need is a floor If it's inclimate weather, I'm at the mall, blowin' past retail stores Exercise without breakin' a sweat And should I blaze on by you don't get upset Headphones are on and then I'm jammin' to rhymes Keepin' shoe ground contact at all times Most doctors tend to agree speed walking is a great form of exercise In this way myriad health benefits are realized Movin' along at a good pace, havin' fun I'm breathin' hard now, under the gun Just up ahead there will be A little break for granola bar and coffee go... Looks like Aunt Annie's Pretzels comin' up on the right A pair of sunglasses and a visor – my speed walkin' disguise! Most doctors tend to agree speed walking is a great form of exercise In this way myriad health benefits are realized

Going to the club, looking very sweet On the prowl tonight for a buttery treat I will tell her 'bout my riches and my job She will be impressed and be about my knob Hey, it's me, sayin' the coolest shit you ever heard I like jet air planes, I been all over the world See this wad? It contains mass dollars You see this shirt? It contains a popped collar Girls will recognize we are socially able And then we will invite them to sit at the table We will laugh and engage in mild high jinx The girls will be amazed by the action and the drinks (models and bottles) I think it's about time (models and bottles) that I got mine (models and bottles) I hope you'll agree (models and bottles) that's the way it should be Over here, hey, it's me Are you prepared for some prime douche baggery? I'm a big deal and yeah I know it But that's cool, because I own it We will be funny and tell great lies We'll touch them subtly on the face and the thighs Two bottles of Kettle and one champaign Cause bein' cool is the name of the game (models and bottles) I think it's about time (models and bottles) that I got mine (models and bottles) I hope you'll agree (models and bottles) that's the way it should be Let me be clear tonight That I enjoy the finer things in life Oh you got a Bentley? I just bought a Rolls' yeah, oh you got a Ferarri? I just got a boat You got one too? Yeah but I got a real one Don't you know I'm in AI startups son? You got an island? Yeah, I just bought three Two for the weekend, one just for me Plus I look better in just a cotton T (models and bottles) I think it's about time (models and bottles) that I got mine (models and bottles) I hope you'll agree (models and bottles) that's the way it should be (models and bottles) livin' that suite life (models and bottles) droppin' that sweet dime (models and bottles) and who knew? (models and bottles) that's the thing to do

Bankster 06:20
Let's go... If somethin' smells fishy, you understand it wrong Cause I make the very best rules up as we go along It's a difficult job to milk society dry If you wanna keep the faith you gotta change up the lie I sell you hope, cause I know you can't see That all the actual hope is reserved for me, cause... What I do is I wear a suit and I say the things that prove I'm smarter than you Don't worry you could never understand cause you're not a Bankster and I am I sell hope in a future that probably doesn't exist You say you don't need the money, take it I insist I give you a rate and I say jump The tax payers can work three jobs if we hit a slump Who says a banknote is slavery? If you don't like it you can live in the street for free, cause... What I do is I wear a suit and I say the things that prove I'm smarter than you Don't worry you could never understand cause you're not a Bankster and I am I make inflation, fiscal castration I turn your labor into a favor I keep the treadmill set on fast I steal the wealth you have amassed I turn intelligence into a joke I turn your value into smoke I take a fee on the rest of your life and spend it on dinner strip clubs tonight We came up with a new multiplication trick to help your pension funds suck our d*** Cause what I do is I wear a suit, and say all the things that prove I'm smarter than you So don't worry you'll never understand cause you're not a Bankster and I am

One day I see this funny lookin' dude I say who the f*** are you? He says, who the f*** are you? I'm the maestro motherf**** You guys been runnin' around like a bunch of buttheads Tearin' the world apart Thinkin' you're gonna somehow slip by the Lord of Death With your rotten heart And the joker and the theif are still confused as they ever been Still can't get no relief And the princes are still circlin' your marketplace They stealin' everything, but you know, You can keep me waiting here All alone for a thousand years Burn out my ears and eyes But the maestro still abides So I say maestro, that sounds like some deep s*** But I don't know what you're talkin' about And he says yeah, you don't know much It's cause you runnin' around singing for these ass**** for your supper and your lunch When you gonna wake up and take your life back from this stupid **** Ain't nobody gonna just hand it back to you If you can't grab it You can keep me waiting here All alone for a thousand years Burn out my ears and eyes But the maestro still abides Man you guys, don't you realize, the maestro still abides? Burn out my ears and eyes, drown out their wretched cries Replace the whole world with lies but the maestro still abides

Pen Man 04:29
Why is this useless stick in the drawer? I will not stand for this anymore Did it work when you put it back? Did you leave it here just to get a laugh? Why would they sell this thing to you With such a little tiny bit of ink in the tube? Someone needs to take the time To make these things right Pen Man, can't you make these things right? Fill them up high Pen Man, oh I beg you rethink The correct amount of ink I'm only halfway down the page When I'm left stranded in a rage The bag contained ten or twenty They could have filled just one for the money Pen Man, can't you make these things right? Fill them to a reasonable height Pen Man, oh I beg you rethink The right amount of ink Oh Yeah! Please don't get me started on printer cartridges If I ever meet that mother*** he gonna need stitches In a world where the greed has become so drastic It seems we're in a race to waste all the plastic Pen Man, can't you make these things right? Fill them to a reasonable height Pen Man, oh I beg you rethink The right amount of ink
