Lyrics:

tell them keep the change, thank you for the service
their eyes spell lies, i can see beneath the surface
my freedom is for purchase, another way of saying
that i ain’t worth shit, chained to corporations
my body a commodity
prices jumping like balls for the lottery
getting molded by the environment like pottery
i’m a mudville prodigy
R-Raised by the breaks, m-made my mistakes
St-stayed on the chase, got played by the fakes
I savor the taste, even if it’s bad
Cuz i remember when thats all i had
now i meditate everyday
write like hemingway
like i’m in the psych ward everyday
everybody crazy some are just better at hiding it
disorder showed me order when i cornered all the vices in
Ask me what my prices is and i’ll tell ya
free.99 for a piece of mind i’ll sell ya
focus on your failure
recognize the purpose
peace ain’t for purchase
It’s a long road ahead of me
lot of folks thats dead to me
only wish em the best
to focus on a better me
i had to let em go
Water my own plants
I have to let em grow
My garden being tended
while these habits being mended
i never get offended only reminded of truths
i ain't confused that things become smooth
& my favorite dreams be blue
you should see the crazy things that we do
just to pay these bills, and pay these dues
& my favorite dreams be blue
you should see the crazy things that we do
just to pay these bills, and pay these dues
i ain’t never had the time
relationships come and go like my prime
I’ve been staring at death in the eye
for a little bit longer than i'd liked to have tried
all the fakes that have lied to my face get described as a break in the vibe yet the vibe still remains
as it drives thru my veins, and i’m like the eye (I) of the storm in my brain
& whether the weather gets better or not
is irrelevant to the plot
i’m propelling to stop
i’m developing not
You can question
There are no answers
there is no heaven
there is no peasant
there is no king
there is no prophet
only a scene
interpreted by beings
that think that they know what they’ve seen
that think they know but they dreams
turn to nightmares when they blink
& my favorite dreams be blue
you should see the crazy things that we do
just to pay these bills, and pay these dues

step into the scene let the beauty intervene
allow the sun to shine, allow the birds to sing
color your imagination with hope
tie a rope round your waist & climb mountains
your youth, it fades, there’s no fountains
death at the door an he’s counting
down & down & down & i’m doubting
you got a way out in your plans

So what are your plans?
What are your dreams?
What are your goals?
What are these things?
Thoughts in the mind
Actions that bring
substance to life
it happens to be
not Talking to you
i’m talking to me
there’s no in between
just conscious to beat
emotions dripping
like wax from a candle
feel like i’ve taken
all i can handle
things re-arranged, but i keep the change
keep the change, cuz i see the chains
in the corner of the room where i hang
there’s freedom in death, let ego be slain
there’s freedom in death, let ego be slain
there’s freedom in death, let ego be slain
let ego be slain
