Track Name: Stay Consistent
Stay Consistent

D.i.Y or die
been on this
for a long time
did i mention
choose your own adventure
never play the game by the rules
our bets in
don't tell us what to do
not just anthem of the youth
first lesson
kept in
spent a lot of time by myself
choking on a sentence
reflection
best in
analyzing to death
and we been
fighting frequencys
trying to find our space

Chorus:
Fuck the fame
and the marketing
we never gave a fuck
y'all stand up
DD.M coming thru
P.O.V point of view
Stay Consistent

If you don't know you
then you probably fall for that
If you don't know true
then you probably stay fronting
If you don't love you
then u can't feel nothing
If you don't know you
then you probably swallow that
DDM stay nice
like a fresh pack
going places we never seen
we like in between
this ain't something you find on a map
this is something gotta know where its at
bring it on back
word of mouth
gotta seek it out
what I'm talking about
its like that boom boom pow

Chorus

Love in the cooking
that make it taste so good
look in your eye that make
me think we could
it was raw and with beauty
like when you made mix tape
for a friend that you love truly
did it for the heart of it
art of it
come close
you can feel the scars of it
been screaming class war all day
something to say
practically speaking
always been seeking
your type of free
Sass and substance
confidence and self doubt
journey into bass
friendly
slow it on down
can you tell me
feeling that connection
when we in your town
experience we made

Chorus
Track Name: Manufacture Consent
Manufacture Consent


Chorus:

Say it like that
I'm not a number
I'm a name (x 4)
say it like that I'm not a number

We've been treated like numbers
and manipulated
played like puppets
you feeling sedated
dehumanized
and we overmedicated
look into them eyes
and see what they created
fall into darkness
and it wouldn't take much
turn into something
not so easy to touch
push pull
take the hands
off the clutch
quick words turn to dust
i was trying to trust

In the name of - say it
don't speak for us
in the name of - say it
don't speak for us
In the name of the people
but we have a name
don't speak for us
it never sound the same
feel it in the gut
know from where you came
say it like that
I'm not a number
I'm a name

Life comes with strings attached
and i know that
can have you making sucker moves
staring at your cereal
eyes glazed over
tv coma
have you hating on a stranger
that you never meet
strings all over
manufacture our consent
cut them strings
yo, atleast we tried
but when you look down
them hands are tied
you feeling done by
chicken fried
caged and battered
all them tears
you cried
that was you, me
and everyone we know
not trusting who's in control
but pulled along
again for a ride
in the power structure
don't believe the hype
these old myths
kept us in line
what it like
their authorities bold
thèse hierarchies sold
out humanity cold
and we paying with our life

In the name of - say it
don't speak for us
in the name of - say it
don't speak for us
In the name of the people
but we have a name
don't speak for us
it never sound the same
feel it in the gut
know from where you came
say it like that
I'm not a number
I'm a name

Chorus

when the bottom get busy
then the top get nervous
you can tell them this number
no longer in service
cutting them strings
here's a knife
these puppet masters keep us
L for life
create the disease
create the cure
keep us conditioned
they always want more
looking for submission
we looking for a door
thats a way out
to escape an old
tired maze now

In the name of - say it
don't speak for us
in the name of - say it
don't speak for us
In the name of the people
but we have a name
don't speak for us
it never sound the same
feel it in the gut
know from where you came
say it like that
I'm not a number
I'm a name
Track Name: Free Thought
Free Thought

Chorus:

Free thought boy
you can take it
if you wanna
shy girl
but I say what i gotta
sick of eating each other
out here like piranha
waiting on your bail money
hanging on your mama


I might be cynical
but i got a swirl of optimism
I'm not so typical
but not a fuck is given
always been talking critical
about the complicated
world we living
and questioning their power
could get you
slapped down quick
unsustainable grip
our lives gonna slip
teach us
just enough to work
not enough to know our worth
meek shall inherit the earth
but we stay digging wells
we can't even drink from
like we been doing math
without the sum

Chorus

1+1= 3
do you agree?
free thought
free speech
till power say its not
and your words breach
their authority
freedom over everything
the sound of discontent
you can hear it
what we bring
is why they fear it
self disciplined
and we playing
that chess board
asking ourselves
what is the stress for?
If rent is theft and
money is a lie
we still feel all this
hunger inside
we kept our head
above the water
but below the grass.

Chorus

Our broken down empathy
got us in a rut
the system got us
not giving a fuck
about another
chained together
connected
swim together
drown each other
feeling disrespected
I ain't trusting
the powers that be
the powers that been
free thought
we can be better than
change or culture
cause it aint built to last
in the name of security
they kill your ass
where there is love
there is life
and that is worth
fighting for
some say
something like
amore

Chorus
Track Name: Flesh & Nostalgia
Flesh & Nostalgia

CHORUS:

Flesh and Nostalgia
memories will find ya
in the end
who are we
bags of skin
and memories
flesh flesh press press
creating meaning
pressed for time
the days no longer had a name
they had lost what they became


You came in with a bit of urgency
saying time is no longer a friend to me
words were heavy spoken
and i knew she was serious
every word had a purpose
and i was curious
stay pressed stay pressed
finding our way no compass
instinct and reason
kept my progress
trying to use all my time
shit burn on my mind
like tick tock
don't stop
365 finding ways to say the same
cause great ideas never die

stay pressed

Chorus

You said if theres no time
only clocks
culture shocks
controlled by and we running
your nights are never long enough
days are so short
prepare to stare
in the face of the time keeper
the clock bites
nips away your life
like your preacher
haunted with hesitation
to keep keeping on
stay strong
muscle and the flesh
when the beat hit the best
that you ever felt
ill put it out
measuring the days
in the face
and the bones say
it's been awhile

stay pressed

Chorus

Waking up
with the determination of forever
falling asleep
with the damp reality of the end
soon we'll just be memories
don't forget don't regret
i wanna believe in
beautiful lies
denial
blanket in the wintertime
kept covered
best behind
facing my mortality
vulnerbility exposed
time goes
that's it
had some good moments
can't quit
swimming towards it
moon and the night
river and the fight
upstream
stay clean
on the journey
walk with me

stay pressed

Chorus

Surronded by my own insignificance
Relishing in my own relevance
ego dies with you
or does it stay behind
i could sleep a thousand years
still wake up in time
carrying around my mind
we stay pressed
we all connect
thats a net we can not see
danced with the moon
never came back
i saw all the stars
put them on my back
that star stuff
a piece of we
held together
peacefully
