    In this prison,
    all the pretense of unity,
    who are they?
    Shades of insanity,
    listen as they destroy self.

    No humanity, Insanity slips,
    into the, Oh say can you see.
    Give me liberty, are give me death.
    Can you hear, the bellowing of sin?
    Calamity that no longer,
    embrace truth.

    As the Oh say Can You See.
    Cries with the torch, darkness,
    Why have thou forsaken me.
    Can you hear the fading, celestial strings,
    every man for self, don't blink,
    I want your bank account, Quiet as I speak,
    There is no justice, when it refuses to link,
    my account number, where I bank.


    Crying out to the ever-lasing one,
    in the hopes of vocal response.
    Pressures, placed upon the Universe,
    Killing one's on self, feed the people, Reverse psychology,
    Satan's plot.

    Society, program, infirmity, extermination, life, Mama the
    man in the mask, is trying to kill me.
    Paradise my prison, Capitalistic dysfunctions, Psychological
    lynching, of all colors, take a deep breath, Beware of where
    you exhale, it can be hazardous to your health.

    Self defeating, emotional extremist, dare savor momentary,
    Mental Genocide, exhale, you are breathing toxins, death by
    one's on hand, give me liberty are give me death.

    Instrument of carnal freedom.
    Instant death, cloning the sip of death,
    confusions, who am I that lives? Blindness to who I am. Oh
    say can you see, see and self-deceptions.

    Call of the spirits, crossing the bars, absent from soul,
    Praying on children, in God's arms, Servants to the serpents,
    Who swear's by oath, sophisticated, death by one's on hand.

    God gives, and it shall be taken away, be careful what you
    eat. Contouring the links, capacities of the man that
    sleeps, decay pervades, Oh say can you see, see and self
    deceptions, enemy that lives, among the living dead,

    Oh say can you see, by the dawn's early? See a self
    deceptions. No justice no peace, cry for the world, don't
    cry for me. Thieves that steal life, Oh say can you see,
    darkness the killer of all men.
    We the me, don't get a chance choose, never put power, in an
    ignorant man's hand, it might be your own death, blinded the
    oh say can you see, I the power of this earth, Let truth be
    swept under the rugs, a thief has no loyalty, only to self.
