about

Versa Nova Houston, Texas

We come from the land of the crack rock.

Twin chemical smoke stacks are the backdrop

We go to war, spit blood on the blacktop

We're kings of the kingdom of shit, and home is where the beat drops.

Track Name: 99%
*agent smith w/ the introduction*

it's all an elaborate game
funneling info to make you feel a certain way
and if you rub against the grain
in the name of treason they'll lock you away
the proprietors of evil
bend and twist to make you feel equal
while using murder and racism to divide the people
i am the alarm clock- wake up sheeple.

participation seems pointless
when your votes are pre-decided
how did it get so bad so fast?
we are the wall that divided
we just sat back and stayed voiceless

well i won't get back in line- this life is mine

we are the 99 (go and tell it on the mountaintop)
we are the 99 (we're just waiting for the ball to drop)
we are the 99 (now let the banners be unfurled)
we are the 99 (we're the cream of the sharecrop)
we are the 99 (but we're pumping gas and pushing mops)
we are the 99 (scream hallelujah- unfuck the world)

where's the line between conspiracy and tyranny?
its becoming clear to see- that our society
is getting weak at the knees as paranoia turns into reality
embrace the endless tragedy
twenty two prisons for every school built
enslaving the people without any guilt
they offer security- but not solutions
and its growing everyday with your silent contribution

we have the numbers to make this right
the time is now doesn't matter if youre brown black or white

i won't get back in line- this life is mine
we're getting out of this place tonight
even if it costs us our lives

we are the 99 (go and tell it on the mountaintop)
we are the 99 (we're just waiting for the ball to drop)
we are the 99 (now let the banners be unfurled)
we are the 99 (we're the cream of the sharecrop)
we are the 99 (but we're pumping gas and pushing mops)
we are the 99 (scream hallelujah- unfuck the world)

*solo*

*bushbreakdown*

our generation doesn't know piss
all of your opinions form- scrolling- down your newsfeeds
they don't want us to unite
lets take our freedom back tonight
things won't be right until we
un.fuck.tha.world.
Track Name: Veal
at times- we all feel like we are just fools and slaves
what is a live in a dark room and being chained to a crate?
our lives are just bi-products used for economic gain
i'll never breathe fresh air again- and you're the one to blame

there's- no- sunshine- for me today
there's- no- sunshine
there's- no- sunshine- for me today
there's- no- sunshine

someone ask me what my life is really worth
it's a shame we were never truly- members of the earth
stunned to the back of the head- skinned alive and deprived
we never had feelings because we were- never truly alive

there's- no- sunshine- for me today
there's- no- sunshine
there's- no- sunshine- for me today
there's- no- sunshine

no one will save us from ourselves
how far will we go to obtain the wealth?
no one will save us from ourselves
how far will we go to obtain the wealth?

i.
i had to burn.
i had to burn what i saw.
one.
one thing i know.
one thing i know this is all wrong.
i.
i had to burn.
i had to burn what i saw.
one.
one thing i know.
one thing i know this is all wrong.
Track Name: Sweet Chariot
it's been heading here a lifetime- better to burn out than fade- away
old enough to know better to young to care- ready to leave behind- this

life of a ghost
a ghost in a shell
a shell in a hole
a hole in myself
feet underground
head in the clouds
lost in the sound
barbed wire crown

willing to- be the last- hand

life's a nightmare come true.
but with all the bad there's some good things too
the things i do just- for you
the stress of the world can surely wait
i'm already sad enough today
remember the words yeah, remember the phrase
thinking about you, i'm happy to say

willing to- be the last- hand
to cast the first- stone
to cast the first stone
to cast the first stone
tonight- tonight
to cast the first fucking stone

no love lost no need to complicate
i'll be sincere if you make this go away
i don't wanna talk about what's wrong with me today
i don't want all of this effort to have been in vain this time
this time.

oh, not again. not again.
oh here we go
just go- the fuck away
please go- the fuck away from me tonight.

go away
go away
go away
go away

leave this place- turn away
there's nothing here- left to save
Track Name: Dying Light (The Good Die Young)
either way
and we all live on while the good die young

there's no tomorrow guaranteed today- we're all gonna die anyway
roll the dice, you don't get to live twice
it's like smoking cigarettes and holding sticks of dynamite

round and around we go (spiraling towards the earth)
and nothin matters maybe don't you know? (i can't tell which is worse)

(either way) this life exhausts everyone
(either way) the light dies like a setting sun
(either way) until walking dead- we have become
(either way) and we all live on while the good die young

the time we borrow- is just wasting away
while false idols remain on display (FUCK KANYE)
genuine people are a dying light
if real recognize real, i must be losing sight.

the frustration's building up in me (can't you see?)
i'm not alone but it's all i can see (grab your kerosene)

(either way) this life exhausts everyone
(either way) the light dies like a setting sun
(either way) until walking dead- we have become
(either way) and we all live on while the good die young

it's hard to be a burning joint, in a world so cold
we are screaming for connection, but you're stuck on your phones
and if you haven't noticed, something's terribly wrong
we all wanna save the world but- we wanna be left alone

(either way) this life exhausts everyone
(either way) the light dies like a setting sun
(either way) until walking dead- we have become
(either way) and we all live on while the good die young

the good die young
the good die youngggg
the good die youngggg

rage. rage. rage.
they'll take and take and take and take
everything you have, everything you love, everything you are
till all you have is nothing left
nothing left to say, nothing left to do, nothing left to hide
but now there's nothing left to lose
let your light shine, let your light shine, let your light
Track Name: Kingslayer
dominion- over your fellow man
is false. is false. is false.
what gives you the right to live above the law?
your time is drawing to an end- your reign will fall like frightened sheep
your house will weep- tears of fucking blood
if mud is all we are- what gives you the right to control- our lives
take it to the streets
ninety nine percent of the worlds feet pounding concrete
can you feel the beat? (can you feel the beat)
that's the sound of victory- this land belongs to you and me
its time- its time-we

kill the king
liberate yourselves- from the yoke of tyranny
kill the king
take up arms with us- until royal blood- flows forth like a fucking sea
to save our family trees from the drought
we're gonna show the king what fucking freedom's all about.

patriotic peasants- blue collars painted red
high time the hierarchy- was placed upon its head
all your beasts of burden- have broken down their pens
they'd rather go down fighting- than be locked up again

this is the day- the sheep kill the shepherd
cause and effect- of things not getting better
will you be there- when it all turns back around
i was there the day- we burned the farmhouse down
paying attention means reading every letter
we can't complain about rain when we made the weather
theres- no need to hide our faces now
i was there the day- we burned the farmhouse down

kill the king
and now the bloods on my hands
and running down both sides of the street
kill the king
i guess your castle's only made of sand
the stones turned to dust- underneath our feet
and we're gonna turn it under and plant new seeds
exterminate this tyranny
cause and effect and effect it travels on
over and over again until we're gone

and then we tear the fucking statues down.
