    I have got to stop the production
    Ceasefire to my love and devotion
    And begin an abrupt soul abortion
    For walking away is my resolution
    To this crazy devouring commotion

    I hate to cross the line in the sand
    But one of us has to rise up & stand
    Standing for right and not contraband
    Seeking more knowledge to understand
    Or else we'll all die in this barren wasteland

    For these Streets I have shed blood and tears
    But no more grinding out of crippling fears
    Fear that my cries would fall on closed ears
    Giving my all but entrapped here for years
    Well today the madness stops right here

    I will no longer allow the Streets to define me
    From here on out I shall determine who I'll be
    Walking into new terrority to see what I can see
    Aligning myself with my true creator, God Almighty
    No longer can I tarry here but I alway remember thee.

    cutting the ties that bind...

    farewell to the streets
    and the leaches that roam them
    can't swim
    treading water
    'til the product consumes them
    deep waters sucking them
    DOWN
    toilet shoots of....
