First single off the album "Burn It Out" (08/30/2012). Video coming soon...

lyrics

Ran outta gas & was forced to a crash landing -
Stretched as far as a Kardashian hamstring -
I'm a spectacular man-thing - the last thing standing,
in effect, on the move, & past planning -
Past redemption, as God asked me to mention -
Believe in the Joker. I'm one of his wackest henchmen -
Hit you in the guts with a blast of dramatic tension - I
Mean the whole tract: gullet-to-ass-wrenching -
Make straight my way - a first-class ascension -
Make safe the streets. It's past prevention -
Hit you like a bulldozer & mass detention -
From the first Anglophone down to the last Frenchman -
Either you man up & unmask your tension -
Or disappear into mental apprehension -
Recede; fall back in the second dimension -
Read it and weep, in animated suspension...

I have risen to die
To spy what misses the eye
They warned me not to try to kiss the sky
But I was born to fly this high...

An alien walks beside you -
Sapient, but he's kinda new -
Now you can see what you've been blind to -
an electrified flying object, rising in the side-view -
A cybernetic leviathan, and it flies too -
On Soviet Earth, traffic is gonna ride you -
Throwing the switch is tantamount to homicide two -
Never mind SkyNet. Come on and meet SkyYou -
It's a cyborg Earth, livin inside you -
And if this some kinda curse, you been lied to -
The skin of the sky cracks, and you can dive through -
Who wants to be the universe? I do...
My only obstacle is my own prejudice -
And wearing that dead weight like a necklace -
It's gonna look like I've lost it & gone reckless -
But it's the only way to get on with the rest of this...

I have risen to die
To spy what misses the eye
They warned me not to try to kiss the sky
But I was born to fly this high...

Sekhmet and Ammit never take a day off -
And they can throw Amun and Hathor way off -
Agents of chaos - mages playin with kleos -
And every day is the final game of the playoffs -
Cities arise in the desert & get blown down -
Music is born in a forest making its own sound -
Compassion reacts when martyrs throw their bones down -
Their children come together & rebuild Jonestown -
We got love like Superman got kryptonite -
The poetry is felt, but it's not written right -
From sun-up until you hit the light,
life's intermittent like frames of winter light, tempered with delight -
So much for not putting old feet in new kicks -
Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? -
Ain't no such thing as new, I think you knew this -
What's new to you, I knew before you kids...

I have risen to die
To spy what misses the eye
They warned me not to try to kiss the sky
But I was born to fly this high...
