In 3 2 1 we'll have some fun Find a place, move your space Come on, hurry up the pace The game has already begun So make your move without rebuke Take aim, make a claim I can see it on your face You're struggling not to lose But in this monarchy there can be only one king It's such a tragedy, but you're completely lacking Someone like you is just not fit to rule But fortunate for us, I was always meant to be Royalty You're down and out, so make this count You can stay with your fate Come to peace with what remains Or keep chasing after my crown We'll make this court to a chess board Take your time, strategize I can see it in your eyes You're not holding back anymore But in this monarchy there can be only one king It's such a tragedy, but you're completely lacking Someone like you is just not fit to rule But fortunate for us, I was always meant to be Meant to be royalty It was meant to be always meant to be, always meant to be me It was meant to be always meant to be, always meant to be me And in this monarchy there can be only one king But fortunate for us, I was always meant to be

evening comes and you pull out your hidden razor you’re engulfed and lose your vision in the haze of dopamine, you look at me and see a face of somebody, another somebody you look afraid have your barricades really decayed? you’re running lemonade at thirty-six degrees centigrade inside your lemon veins and your heart’s a lemon grenade you think i’m playing charades, masquerade but this machine just needs an upgrade in your dreams you see yourself forever weaving holy webs, you wake up looking at the ceiling dopamine is coursing through your head and leaving emptiness, it’s leaving emptiness you feel betrayed oh i hate to rain on your parade but as you know disasters often come in great cavalcades your mind begins to fade thought that you were made in the shade? neither a serenade, nor a tirade - a melody of your cascade have your barricades really decayed? you’re running lemonade at thirty-six degrees centigrade inside your lemon veins and your heart’s a lemon grenade you think i’m playing charades, masquerade but this machine just needs an upgrade oh this isn’t the end hold my hand there is no need to play these games and pretend all is lost take it from me - this voice in your head - nurture that monster under your bed and feel the taste of lead again, my friend

To the promised land Marching along to meet the light ahead With the people’s cheers bright in the air And hopes and wishes spread We embarked onto a journey of fate For all the people we knew To wherever we believed we were to go So we proved our strength, filling our hearts With courage bottled and stored And we bravely fought, not for ourselves But the oaths that we had sworn Yet for reasons that in spite of it all We couldn’t understand Tore the answer that we sought out of our hands As the tears dry And heather, ensanguined, still smolders Only birds of prey Know the tale of this battlefield This forlorn sky Unbearable weight on my shoulders (This forlorn sky, clouded) As you fly away Unseen, unburdened like smoke tossed to the wind (You fly away into the wind) We pushed on and on into the fog Believing there was a way Yet the promises we couldn’t keep Grew bigger every day And the truth of all the limits we held (Despair, let down, angered) Invited everyone’s scorn As the earth beneath us crumbled, withered and torn (Worthless to all) The remembrance So quiet and empty and broken (Remembered you, fleeting) All my memories Slipping out through my fingers (Your face and voice, with hatred) And the feelings Left vacant and always unspoken (We tried, we strove, always) And we wondered then What meaning all of this burden was for (What did we ever fight for?) In my hometown The wind only ever gets colder Of the places there —we must go to that place again As the tears dry And heather, ensanguined, still smolders (The tears are always falling) Only birds of prey Know the tale of this battlefield (The birds of prey are feeding) This forlorn sky Unbearable weight on my shoulders (This forlorn sky, clouded) As you fly away Unseen, unburdened like smoke tossed to the wind (You fly away into the wind)

Has the world gone astray Are we gonna be okay We’re forgetting how to love If you take my hand Drag me ‘cross this land You’ll see my heart break in two Reading all the news I can’t shy away from all that i can’t try I can’t help and make those problems resolve What is there that I can do Donate here and there just to Line the pockets and Hope relief comes Escape this truth Oh, what am I to do? Naught but fantasy soothes my soul, Oh I gotta smile just at least, Care for those who are in need Make the world a better place Down and down the spiral goes Where it stops nobody knows What this race to the bottom Tells us ‘bout our world How we see and stare I just don’t quite know What's all really there I can tell you now I just see this way If you want to know I can’t tell you why I just want to be Someone that’s happy But you know that it’s Not that way forever Knowing that I feel all alone Folding faster than all I’ve known Sometimes it’s like there’s no chance to rest I can’t let this get to me Even though it has already This condition stays with us all Escape this truth Oh What am I to do? Naught but fantasy soothes my soul, Oh I gotta smile just at least, Care for those who are in need Make the world a better place Take this from me I just really wanna see A world where peace has won out But until we come to that day We must find our own new ways To make the world a better place

Big Al Get up, we movin' this floor now Take it, ya body just know how Listen, ya boy get rich when I don' try it Everything I touch turn gold like Midas I'm rich and fly, no lyin' People check me out like spyin' But I can't blame them for tryin' I know I'm electrifyin' I got the golden flows And everybody knows I'm the whole show Put me on stage and watch it glow See, I'm the kinda guy That's got nobility I be lendin' out my voice Write it off as charity Forget ya G's I'm countin' karats Ya got that run-down beat I will repair it See, my skills deserve some merit I'm a gift that keeps on givin' With the hits you'll keep relivin' Yo I make the song complete 'Cause y'all know I am The Elite My name's on that marquee For everyone to see Those other artists can't front with me Those lights are flashin' B-I-G Call me Lord Call me King Call me Your Majesty But at the end of the day I'm just a good ol' G Your song has got that shine My voice on every line That flow is so divine But the pleasure's all mine I got them gold stars And gold bars Gold cars That go far Can't touch, you know what these rings are My 24-K voice Is the one and only choice So put me on that stage And let my people rejoice! And when the beats are rough Just trust my Midas touch 'Cause all the notes are bling Every time I sing (x4) Everyone calls me the gilded Adonis Everything I touch turn gold like Midas

The taste of nitrous bit my tongue as your lips corroded into mine The reverberations took their time and I passed away under your warmth Time is sacred to me now cause it's limited when you're around If I could take your hand and go away we'd be gone until we're both decayed Take me away from here I hold your weight so dear Take me away from here I'll take you away from here on out Spin it how you want it Teach me better, how you want it Lay me out to the curb and touch me how you wanna be me Break it out, keep breathing /redacted/ in Blue balloons took us away then Lay me out to the curb and kill me Set me free from this mirage The place we did that comes to mind when I taste the liquor on your breath My inclinations took a ride and I passed away behind the door Time is sacred to me now cause it's infinite but will run out

Breathe the embers in And heed their warning on your skin Watch as dawn decays A herald for the end of days Hear the anguished calls As darkness breaks through iron walls Soon the bells will chime Toll out for vengeance one last time One by one each spirit fails With havoc cutting winding trails Beneath the moonlight bleeding pale But over hills of cobblestone Where winds of reckoning are blown A single soldier stands alone My people bow your heads Our city burns, our king is dead And dust is all that in their stead remains But raise the banners high Take arms and scream your battle cry The monarch comes to claim this throne again March towards the fray Courage to keep the beast at bay Soon their backs will bend To the dominion we defend One by one as spirits fail With chaos cutting crimson trails Beneath the moonlight gleaming pale Just over hills of cobblestone Where seeds of destiny are sown A single soldier stands alone And as blazes are trampled Under our feet The horns that played their advances Sound their retreat Then rising up from the ashes To honor we run Banded together as one My people lift your heads Though city burns, and king is dead We fight for all that in their stead remains So, wave the banners high Take arms and scream your battle cry Your monarch comes to claim his throne again

[Policeman] 2043, December 28. The crimescene up in the mansion, where the android sat Being taken to custody he gazed at his hands, whispering about some faeries and a child's land In the seat where he's caged, you'll have to sit with him alone, he's no use to us, but I'll put him on the phone [Al] My name is Al, I am not man You hate me now but can't you see I did this all for their sake It's all for their sake It's all for their sake It's over, I will not run when the lights go- [Chorus] (Al Al, what's your alibi) I'm a slave to the man I hate the most (Al Al, why are you trying to hide) There is no justice for what he has done (Al Al, it's no use to lie) Even all of the boys are just through with him (Al Al, what's your alibi) You'll never hear what I have to say [Detective] Listen closely here, Al, to what I'm gonna say There's been rumors 'bout this man they say that you have slain I cannot save you if you lie, you're no use to the case I need some info on this man, and the boys he erased [Al] Through choking him, I sold my life Dark halls lonely walls were all I saw So turn me off, I will not fight Even your god cannot save me now He won't save me now He won't save me now So be it, I'll die by hands that created me [Chorus] (Al Al, what's your alibi) I'm a slave to the man I hate the most (Al Al, why are you trying to hide) There is no justice for what he has done (Al Al, it's no use to lie) Even all of the boys are just through with him (Al Al, what's your alibi) You'll never hear what I have to say [Al] Scars on my hands depict the truth I am but a flaw in the programming Caught in the act, all that I had The little boys that all ran away They all ran away They all ran away So be it, I'll die protecting who I loved [Detective] They didn't love you, Al, they used you like a pawn Ballistics positive he struggled and scratched up their arms We know the kids have run, they're never coming back Your master's gone and now you've got one task left to attack You say you choked him right? You say that this was your fault You smeared your hands on his neck, erased the fingerprints But we have seen the truth, the tissues underneath his nails The thing with Androids is that, they don't have DNA. [Chorus] I'm part of a family who I love There is no justice for what he has done Even the family cannot take his rage You'll never feel what I have to take [Al] My name is Al, I am not man You hate me now but can't you see I did this all for their sake It's all for their sake It's all for their sake It's over, I will not run when-

It's been a week Since the last time I called Over a month Since the last time we talked You went out of my life And into another You felt it was right No need to go further You don't have to answer But just hear me out I may never understand But I won't shout I just want to know the truth about you So call me back, just call me back, call me back Another day One more message to send What will I say I won't try to defend The way I was then The way that I am now If I try again Can we just talk this out Call me back (x8) Can you call me back?

The curtains draw Now take a bow Your reign of terror is over now Absorbing crime And you are mine You've pulled the trigger for the last time. I will witness your fall from grace Trial and error, I like the chase Gotta go, no time to waste Drive by Cyanide, I've cracked the case [Cyva] You think you're clever But I'll endeavour To show you who i really am I'm just for hire The biggest buyer Cash speaks louder and that's my plan -Drive by Cyanide- x5 You think you've won I've just begun To pull in closer, your spree is done I'm on the beat And in the street Your days numbered, please take a seat =) I will witness your fall from grace Trial and error, I like the chase Gotta go, no time to waste Drive by Cyanide, I've cracked the case And when your brought in for questioning Your lies will unravel just like a string The scale of justice's time to swing Hold your hands up, I've got everything! x2

[Big Al] I've been thinking 'bout the times we shared Dancing in my room without a care My hearts been beating faster, more than I can bear And I know it's not rhythm in the air, no It's in the way you move, like you're burning bright Brighter than the sun, how you keep me up at night Everything you do, I feel the fire within Dunno what I think, but what a fool I've been I know when we're this close I just wanna be with you And boy, I know, with just a dose Oh, you're gonna feel this, too And I can taste your cologne Or is it cheap perfume? But boy, I know when we're this close I just wanna be, I just wanna be with you [Dex] I'm getting closer but you're still not here I'm like a record, pleasant on the ears I'll let you play my keys, so baby take the lead I'll be quiet or as violent as you please Oh, catch me like a wave at its breaking point Your eyes, your smile, hope you stay a while with me All the in-between, should it fade away I've got just the place for you and me, cause babe I know when we're this close I just wanna be with you And boy, I know, with just a dose Oh, you're gonna feel this, too And I can taste your cologne Or is it cheap perfume? But boy, I know when we're this close I just wanna be, I just wanna be with you There we go around again When will this end? I can't pretend, I've Caught myself while daydreamin' How close we've been We're more than friends, so When you gonna pull me in Skin to skin, commit the sin Waking up the morning after it And leave me with a kiss To come back in the evening Just to lose it to the feeling And we'll do it all again We'll do it all again Oh I know when we're this close I just wanna be with you And boy, I know, with just a dose Oh, you're gonna feel this, too And I can taste your cologne Or is it cheap perfume? But boy, I know when we're this close I just wanna be, I just wanna be with you
