Track Name: Rockupy The World
rockupy the world
by trance blackman

the time has come to turn the page
to rock and roll the silent rage
the fight is old
they're buying gold
and everybody's broke...

the steel and borders are a game
the monkey man is who to blame
the stage is set
they're taking bets
that "occupy" will choke...

.chorus
so here's a cup of courage
for every guy and girl
we're putting on our walking boots
to rockupy the world!

so here's the new reality
for every guy and girl
we're putting on our walking boots
to rockupy the world!
rockupy the world!
rockupy the world!

the war machine is obsolete
your policies are incomplete
the suits and ties
are spitting out lies
and we have had enough!

the drones can try to blow apart
the power built inside the heart
the debts are paid
the choice is made
the prigs are in a huff!

.chorus

Track Name: Situation
"situation"
by trance blackman

so you have a puzzle in your head
never get to sleep when you're in bed

something in the story doesn't go
placing all the evidence for show

when you know the situation
seen it with your eyes
when you know the situation
words do not apply

playing out the struggle in your mind
now you see the truth where you were blind

something on the record isn't right
they made up all the reasons for the fight

when you know the situation
seen it with your eyes
when you know the situation
words do not apply

when you know the situation
seen it with your eyes
when you know the situation
words do not apply

when you know the situation
you've seen it with your eyes
when you know the situation
words do not apply

Track Name: Shut It Down (Turn It Off)
"shut it down (turn it off)"
by trance blackman

big man on the hill
doesn't know that he's a shill
pretending to be leadership
offending all the readership

big trouble on the sand
blackened "home and native land"
pretending to be all the hype
but nothing good is in the pipe

if you believe the medium
and all the bullshit tedium
close your eyes and stay asleep
the rest of us will wake the sheep

shut it down, turn it off
shut it down, turn it off

shut it down, turn it off
shut it down, turn it off

shut it down, turn it off
shut it down, turn it off

shut it down, turn it off
shut it down, turn it off

Track Name: Shake It Up
"shake it up"
trance blackman

.chorus/intro
we're gonna shake shake shake it up
break break break it up
shake shake shake it up
break break break it up

all those words
and all those stories
keep telling them that
it's for death or glory

start your fights
ignite your battles
do everything you can
to keep 'em rattled

.chorus

all those rules
and all those conditions
you've rigged up everything
with politicians

toe the line and
stop your thinkin'
oh did you notice that
the ship was sinkin'?

.chorus (2x)

we're gonna break break break it up
we're gonna break break break it up
we're gonna break break break break
break it up


(c)2013 nothing so right music
Track Name: Disclosure
"disclosure"
trance blackman

you keep your secrets
with all of mine
if these are secrets
then why the line?

forever baseless
your hidden crime
a method faceless
like doing time

you had your congress
alike in mind
forsaking progress
with ties that bind

in every corner
just out of sight
there sits a mourner
gave up the fight

with real disclosure
there's no enemy i can find
with real disclosure
there's a revolution to unwind

with real disclosure
there's no enemy i can find
with real disclosure
there's a revolution to unwind

Track Name: Take It Back
"take it back"
trance blackman

because the sovereign soul
is a certainty
all of your plagiarized principles
are moot to me

there've been assaults on the fabric
of reality
a sensitivity is forcing me
through make believe

you have a clever cloaked endeavour
that is clear to me
and with the hammer of the gods
we break the secrecy

divisive lines on the paper of
a fallen tree
it's out of date, all of those states are
part of you and me

we're gonna take it back
take it away
the greater story's here
here to stay

we're gonna take it back
take it away
the greater story's here
here to stay

what's done is done
you've had your fun
we're here to take it back
take it back
take it back

Track Name: Marionette
"marionette"
trance blackman

you feel like you're someone important
but you're swimming in the rules that you didn't write
you believe that you're gonna make a difference
but you're motivations demonstrate another sight

CHORUS
marionette
do - do - what you're always told to do
marionette
da - da - da - darkness in place of truth
marionette
i - i - i wish that you could see
marionette
what kind of fool (that) you've really been

you know that you were born a leader
but your dealer is keeping aces out of sight
you believe that the people better listen
but the people see the lies and they will own the fight

CHORUS

you are a marionette...

CHORUS

Track Name: Betrayed
"betrayed"
trance blackman

the voice of reason
gets arrested for treason
when the puppets
and the muppets
carry on with their game

the sound of violence
cutting through the silence
when the army
goes on harming
in democracy's name

BRIDGE
maybe it's time to be crazy
pull your head out from the hazy
tear up all the contracts
and demand what is right!

CHORUS
yes, we've been betrayed
the truth is not what is displayed
you know, you know we've been betrayed
but it's okay to have been played
because the revolution
breaks illusion
no confusion
will remain...

the love of money
makes the mind all funny
when the bankers
prove they're wankers
and incestual pests

there's no mistaking
that the world's awaking
turning sheeple
back to people
summoning all the best

BRIDGE
CHORUS

Track Name: Blagger
"blagger" 09/13
by trance blackman

now your games are so plain
with your weapons of mass disruption
corruption

all the faces of shame
with your methods of blunt distortion
extortion

/bridge/
blagger has his strings
and he doesn't know a thing
only yes sir
yes sir
as you're told!

/chorus/
one, two, three, four
i declare a thumb war
setting fire to your fires
tripping feet and hanging wires
one, two, three, four
i declare a thumb war
nobody believes it anymore
no more war!

now your ways are so clear
with your focus on grand illusion
delusion

all the pictures you frame
with your palette of black deception
inception

/bridge
/chorus

Track Name: A Casualty And A Warzone
"A Casualty And A Warzone"
by trance blackman

never never gonna get a break
never never gonna get to wake

never never know the birds and bees
never never know the ocean breeze

never never gonna get to climb
never never gonna get the time

never never know the city lights
never never know the starry nights

/chorus
all he ever wanted
he'll never ever know
all she ever dreamed of
she'll never ever see
just another chapter
from the book of the bones
a casualty and a warzone

never never gonna get to fight
never never gonna get the right

never never know the only one
never never know the morning sun

never never gonna get to swear
never never gonna get nowhere

never never know the city lights
never never know the starry nights

/chorus
/break
/chorus (2x)
a casualty and a warzone
a casualty in the warzone...

Track Name: Enough
"Enough"
trance blackman
10/13

something funny in the sky
caught the corner of my eye
you try to say that it's good for me

something funny in the seed
comes with everything you need
you try to say that it's good for me

stay calm stay calm and carry on (2x)

something funny in the air
heavy metal everywhere
you try to say that it's good for me

something funny in the brain
more synthetics down the drain
you try to say that it's good for me

stay calm stay calm and carry on (2x)

/chorus
hey oh!
here we go again
hey oh!
and we've had enough (had enough)
we've had enough (had enough)
we've had enough (had enough)
we're not playing anymore!

something funny with your jets
pointing fingers taking bets
you try to say that it's good for me

something funny with your rocket
close the file make sure you lock it
you try to say that it's good for me

stay calm stay calm and carry on (2x)

/chorus (2x)
