Magellan lyrics - Impending Ascension

Waterfront Weirdos

Original and similar lyrics
We are the misfits with a broken horizon Like Keats or Hemingway, survive with poets defiance Christmas at the Martinique grieving for a home Three generations tough it out on the big street all alone... Rank of the privileged on the evening commute Don't want to be bothered, don't want to be used booming in suburbia, shuttle's on the way A beggar asks for money. It's a dollar you don't want to pay- To the Waterfront Weirdos For the Waterfront Weirdos Who are the Waterfront Weirdos? Many live on the edge, keep them out of sight out of mind In our midst a disgrace-answers are elusive yet we find It's so damn hard to conceive 'till it looks you straight in the eye Just take a walk on West 32nd Street or pick up a New York Times and believe it... Up in an ivory tower it's hard to see, hard to feel, hard to be homeless and one of the outcast-Waterfront Weirdos. Who are the Waterfront Weirdos? Many live on the edge, keep them out of sight out of mind In our midst a disgrace-answers are elusive then we find Powerless is a child in the wake of hunger at night Giving up-giving in Can't we hear their screaming from within...? My life spent standing here in the back of a line I'm living for the moment-yes, I'm living by the hour in a game of survival In a mood of resignation I'm not the man I am- meal ticket, waiting for a handout Things will change and somehow I'll get out I keep telling myself it won't last forever Adversity closing in, my sanity lapses, I'll rise again Resisting the end Only 22 as my apprehension seques into an IMPENDING ASCENSION I could not fake this for long How long am I supposed to take it lying down? I will not take this lying down! Many live on the edge Keep them out of sight out of mind In the end it is us picking up the pieces that we find On the path of least resistance evidence is loud and clear When will we wake up? Failures are mounting as the underclass grows every year and believe that- Up in an ivory tower it's hard to see, hard to feel, hard to be homeless and one of the Waterfront Weirdos It's so damn hard to believe 'till it looks you straight in the eye Shake the hands of losers lost on Broadway who remember a nostalgic time and believe that- Up in an ivory tower it's hard to see, hard to feel, hard to be homeless and one of the outcast-Waterfront Weirdos.

JEDI MIND TRICKS "The Psycho-Social, Chemical, Biological, And Electro-Magnetic Manipulation ..."
[Chorus x2: sample] "One two three Let me you, if you ready for me, lord" [Verse 1] It's the infinite connect Respect what you see as if you praise Donald Chief And understand my plan is to prosper till deceased And let my bank account increase until it over flows In pathfinder jeeps, organized and blunt patrol And never indulge in petty shit that's irrelevant Thousand dollar shopping sprees just for the hell of it Drinkin' daquiri's in the back of caravans And finally got the chance to live my lifestyle advanced And keep my mind clear of poisonous stunts and beams Be deep meditations, now I see where pagans dream And do time, around and get mine So I relax while you stress, try to follow the rest Never the less, I finesse, teach moves like it's my last speech My thoughts on the future, cause it don't equal the past Niggaz steady plotin', your every move we be watching There's no room for error, once you slip, your forgotten A never hasbeen, in a world of frame and fronters Who had to learn the hard way, how disease can take you under [Chorus] [Verse 2] Mall master be coming at you, that nigga that curse alot Shit, I even reverse a rock, I be feedin' ya purse with glocks Rushin' against your garment, daily Hailey Comet, a bomber Punk, you wanna fuck wit funk, have you breathing out ya armpit My guns that weighs the joint, don't even hand a malla' nina Have niggaz tits and too-toos, and on point like ballerinas You can bring ya best to west, found dressed in some rugged shit You blind, ridin' on my dick, don't know who you fuckin' with (From Crooklyn to west side Phil, we keep it real) So if you squeal on the reasons, for these heavens squeezin', the steel Slow subliminal criminals strangle triggers that's identical Mangle bitches that's fly, die with my dick inside ya genitals (Sendin' you through shit you never thought of The don who bust the sawed off So recogize, I squeeze and then ya life lost) [Chorus] [Verse 3] My raw essence is forever present But my team be chasing dreams of cream and digits in the seven The heavens, see my body is soul and ever presence My verbal tecture will bless you with scientific lessons On another plane, it's hard to maintain Cuz my membrane, causes strain within my inner frame The pain, from my people that be involuntary You in this game for this love, dunn, or monetary Forever keepin' the spirit, so like Elijah My verbal fire, will resurrect you like the great Messiah Desire, is like the law of the siren song Arm Leg Leg Arm, my word is bond, so I move on And stay strong like Egyptian Kings Rockin' diamond rings and things that it bring I spread the science, to all the planets, I'm hard as granite You need the knowledge of God, dunn, to understand it [Chorus]

Same Cry

JIN "The Rest Is History"
We May Look Different But We See The Same Sky We may see different But we cry the same cry To wake up daily, And sleep better nights, Thats what we all wish for to seek a better life, right? It's unfortunate, when tragedys strike, But the truth is reality bites, June 4th 89, a day residents fear Now known as The Massacre At Tiananmen Square The day I turned seven they were mourning and grieving Thousands of innocents die for what they believed in Come with nothing but heart and a point to prove Stood infront of tanks and refused to move What Would You Do? Run or stand still whens your lifes on the line To test a mans will Seeking change and they found but in death Strangers yet they were my blood and flesh This happened in China, But you ain't gotta be asian to relate To the struggle, pain and hard aches [Chorus:] You'll never know, You'll never get it, There is no choice, We can't forget it We look up We see the same sky We look up We cry the very same cry See, I'm a grown man It hurts when I turn on the news And see thats going on in my homeland This SARS epidemic, could've been lives Could've stand for Should Asians Really Survive They'll try anything to break your family apart Politics could break down the manliest heart Can the child within my heart rise above If theres a billion of us I shouldn't have to look for love Overpopulation, but damn just to meet the needs Its illegal to have more than one seed How can you dictate birth regardless the women And the parents they make the hardest decisions Sons keep their family names so thats not an option Imagine having to put your daughter up for adoption And even though its beyond your control Keep your head up heres a sond for your soul [Chorus] If you don't know where you came from You can't get the way your trying to go Theres ain't denying so, its true I got some big shoes to fill But If I don't lead the movement, then who will Stuck between a rock and a hard place Thinking about the refugees that went to see god's place 16,000 miles across the ocean tides Some died, some got lucky and survived I wouldn't call it luck, they reached their destination Modern day slavery without the plantation Them sneakers on your feet cost $100 a pop My peoples making 15 cents a day in sweatshops To make them kicks, so you can look good. Think we open restaurants cause we cook good? Hell No, we ain't got no choice I gotta speak up, without me my people have no voice [Chorus x2]

Anticipate

ANI DIFRANCO "Not So Soft"
You are subtle as a window pane Standing in my view But I will wait for it to rain So that I can see you You call me up at night When there's no light passing through And you think that I don't understand But I do We don't say everything that we could So that we can say later Oh, you misunderstood I hold my cards up Close to my chest I say what I have to And I hold back the rest 'Cause someone you don't know Is someone you don't know Get a firm grip, girl Before you let go For every hand extended Another lies in wait Keep your eye on that one Anticipate Dress down get out there Pick a fight with the police We will get it all on film For the new release Seems like everyone's an actor Or they're an actor's best friend I wonder what was wrong to begin with That they should all have to pretend We lost sight of everything When we have to keep checking our backs I think we should all just smile Come clean and relax If there's anything I've learned All these years on my own It's how to find my own way there And how to find my own way back home
