Track Name: Sanity
[Verse 1]

What is a bird? What is a bee?/
What is a flower, a tree?/
My body is made of atoms and elements makes me wonder
What then is me/
What is time, ticks of a clock?/
Where does it go? When does it stop?/
Time is eternal for stars in the sky
so then are we Gods, cuz people can die?

Why do we love the ones that we hate
and hate the ones that we love/
Why do I feel cool when I use Bodywash
but I feel cleaner when I wash with Dove
If I am already programmed to be racist//
and see black faces. Then what do I see?/
Manifestations of mind and body
or Infestations of hate within me

How can I really understand/
Owning people owning land/
Half of the problems are solved in the world
If nobody ever had hands/
I am aware of being alive/
Life is a question, am I the why?/
Maybe there's a scientific equation
explaining the reasons we cry/

Training the horses to fly/
War can be used for feigning a reason to die/
Squaring the roots of the pi's/
Choosing the lies/
Decimals passing me by/
Is there a line not to be crossed/
Cloned sheep wearing lip gloss/
Or am I a brontosaurus, and is this the land of the lost?/

[hook]

Sanity...sanity...
remember me

As I go...all alone
I am ready

[hook]

Why is it easy for me to be wild?/
Reckless and break things just like a child?/j
Nature of man is beast/
Man at the top, beast at the least/
Turn em into griddle grease/
Mass production feeding the masses the meats and the cheese/
I consume the product of the machines daily/
and never have time for please/
Bruce Lee said, be formless like water/
Water can crash, water can flow/
Water can ebb water can flood/
Drowning the places where flowers should grow/


Liquidly/ This symphony is evident in my life/
Water in shampoo bottles, cuz my currency aint right/
Silent streams of hidden schemes try to gently wash me out/
Fully enlightened the water's inviting I carry a triton/
I am posiedon/

Why do you smoke?/Why you get high?/
Why don't you care what I think?/
Daily we fill up on shit more dangerous
than any flower, than any drink/
Smell that stink/Mother Earth, I am a babe
Feed me milk/
Calming down softly as a breath wrapped in silk/
Heavens to megatroid/
Pop-u-lar O-pin-ions I-pre-fer to-a-void/
Things are not always what they seem/
Top then aint always the crops cream/
