    Hmmm, no profanity whatsoever in this album...

    That's nice for a change

    I agree. While I don't mind profanity, I tend to prefer clean LP. Aside from Hands Held High, I've never really thought their profanity helped the song.

    "I can't C-Flat, it ain't my tone." I love that. Mike isn't one for pure rap-style wordplay and I like when he sprinkles in these kind of things with his more metaphorical style.

    CORRECTIONS:

    UNTIL IT BREAKS

    It goes a one, two, three....

    (I was born with) the hunger of a lion, the strength of a sun.
    I don't need to sweat it when the competition come
    Original style like an 808 drum, so I don't run the track.
    No, I make the track run.
    My mama taught me words, my dad, he built rockets.
    I put 'em both together now, tell me what I got.
    It's a pretty smart weapon:
    I can shoot it, I can drop it.
    (But) learn to respect it cause you clearly can't stop it like that.

    Yea it aint over, cause the sharks on the left side, the snakes on the right.
    And anything you do, they wanna get a little bite.
    It really doesn't matter if you're wrong or if you're right.
    Cause once you get the teeth in, nothing really fights.

    Except for me, I do it like I got nothing to lose
    and you can run your mouth like you could try to fill my shoes.
    But steady little soldier, I ain't standing next to you.
    I'd be laying on the ground before you're even in my view.
    Like that.

    Give me the strength of the rising sun.
    Give me the truth of the words unsung.
    And when the large bells ring, the poor men sing
    "Bring me to kingdom come"

    This is something for your people on the block to/black out and rock to,
    Give you whatcha need like Papa/Who shot ya
    Separate the weak from the obselete, you're meek, I creep hard on imposters
    And switch styles on the dime/Quick witted ya'll/Quit tripping
    I don't have time for your crying
    I grind tough, sucka, make your mind up,
    Are you in the firing squad or are you in the line-up?
    Bang bang/Little monkey man playing
    With the big guns will only get you slayed and I ain't playing
    I'm just saying / You ain't gotta sliver of a chance
    I get iller, I deliver/While you quiver in your pants,
    So shake shake down/Money, here's the break down
    You can play the bank/I'ma play the bank take down
    And no mistakes now/I'm coming to getcha
    I'm a Banksy/You're a Brainwash, get the picture?/
    It's like that..

    We swim against the rising waves and crash against the shore
    The body bends until it breaks, the early morning sings no more.
    So rest your head, it's time to sleep and dream of what's in store.
    The body bends until it breaks, then sings again no more.
    Cause time has torn the flesh away, the early morning sings no more...

    ===
    Also corrected the LITE, and Castle Of Glass lyrics in the first post. Too tired to do the others right now.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. I remember back during the nu metal days they said that swearing was a lazy form of expression, so it's nice they've gone back to that belief.

    I think it would be more accurate to change "Papa/Who shot ya" with "Poppa/Who Shot Ya", since I think it's a Biggie reference. And also it's "I'm just a Banksy".

    Lyrics are looking much better, good job!
    Though, I still think the second verse of I'll Be Gone starts out with "This air between us is getting thinner now", rather than "The sand".

    I would vote for: Poppa/"Who Shot Ya" since B.I.G. did the song with the name Who Shot Ya.

    Sample lyrics:
    Who shot ya?
    Separate the weak from the ob-so
    -lete, Hard to creep them Brooklyn streets
    It's on nigga, fuck all that bickering beef
    I can hear sweat trickling down your cheek
    Your heartbeat soun' like Sasquatch feet
    Thundering, shaking the concrete
    Finish it, stop, when I foil the plot
    Neighbors call the cops said they heard mad shots

    You have in LITE that mike says

    So you can let it be known, I don't hold back, I hold my own.
    I can't be matched, I can't be cloned./I can't C-Flat, it ain't my tone.

    I'm pretty sure he says mapped, not matched.

    I originally thought "there's no way, that doesn't make more sense than matched". But I think you're right. Kind of like mapping DNA.

    Keep all the revisions coming, guys! We want to be as accurate as possible.

    This might just be me, but in VICTIMIZED, it sounds like Mike is saying

    "I ain't scared of your teeth / I admire what's in em."

    But I could be wrong.

    First verse of LITE:

    "There and back, yet my soul aint sell." = "There and back, yet my sold ain't sailed."?

    Pretty sure on In My Remains the chorus is "set the silence free" not "so let the silence ring"

    There's still some minor errors and I've just gone through everything adding the revisions people have made and making sure the grammar is correct etc. and I think these are the right lyrics...

    LOST IN THE ECHO

    Yeah!
    Yo/You were that/Foundation/Never gonna be another one, no
    I followed/So taken/So conditioned I could never let go
    Then sorrow/Then sickness/Then the shock when you flip it on me
    So hollow/So vicious/So afraid I couldn't let myself see
    That I could never be held/Back or up/No/I hold myself
    Check the rep/Yep/You know mine well/Forget the rest/Let them know my hell
    There and back yet/My soul ain't sell/Kept respect of the best/They fell
    Let the rest be the tale they tell/And I was there saying:

    "In these promises broken/Deep below
    Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie I can see through
    This time I finally let you go"

    Test my will/Test my heart
    Let me tell you how the odds gonna stack up
    Y'all go hard?/I go smart
    How's that working out for y'all in the back, huh?
    I've seen that/Frustration/Big cross/Aloft/I don't know
    And I've come back/Unshaken/Let down and live and let go
    So you can let it be known/I don't hold back/I hold my own
    I can't be mapped/I can't be cloned/I can't #C-Flat/It ain't my tone
    I can't fall back/I came too far/Hold myself up and earned my scars
    Let the bells ring where ever they are/'Cause I was there saying:

    "In these promises broken/Deep below
    Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie I can see through
    This time I finally let you go"

    No/You can tell 'em all now
    I don't back up/I don't back down
    I don't fold up and I don't bow
    I don't roll over/Don't know how
    I don't care where/The enemies are
    Can't be stopped/All I know/Go hard
    Won't forget how/I got this far
    And every time saying:

    In these promises broken/Deep below
    Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie I can see through
    This time I finally let you go

    IN MY REMAINS

    Separate, sifting through the wreckage, I can't concentrate
    Searching for a message in the fear and pain
    Broken down and waiting for the chance, to feel alive...

    Now in my remains, our promises, they never came
    So let this silence free, to wash away the worst of me

    Come apart, falling in the cracks of every broken heart
    Digging through the wreckage of your disregard
    Sinking down and waiting for the chance, to feel alive...

    Now in my remains, our promises, they never came
    So let this silence free, to wash away the worst of me

    Like an army, falling, one by one by one.
    Like an army, falling, one by one by one.

    Like an army, falling, one by one by one.
    Like an army, falling, one by one by one.
    Like an army, falling, one by one by one.

    Now in my remains, our promises, they never came
    So let this silence free, to wash away the worst of me

    (One by one, one by one by one)

    Like an army falling, one by one by one.
    Like an army falling, one by one by one.

    BURN IT DOWN

    The cycle repeated
    As explosions broke in the sky
    All that I needed
    Was the one thing I couldn't find
    And you were there at the turn
    Waiting to let me know

    We're building it up
    To break it back down
    We're building it up
    To burn it down
    We can't wait
    To burn it to the ground

    The colors conflicted
    As the flames, climbed into the clouds
    I wanted to fix this
    But couldn't stop from tearing it down
    And you were there at the turn
    Caught in the burning glow
    And I was there at the turn
    Waiting to let you know

    We're building it up
    To break it back down
    We're building it up
    To burn it down
    We can't wait
    To burn it to the ground

    You told me yes
    You held me high
    And I believed when you told that lie
    I played soldier, you played king
    And struck me down, when I kissed that ring
    You lost that right, to hold that crown
    I built you up, but you let me down
    So when you fall, I'll take my turn
    And fan the flames
    As your blazes burn

    And you were there at the turn
    Waiting to let me know

    We're building it up
    To break it back down
    We're building it up
    To burn it down
    We can't wait
    To burn it to the ground

    When you fall, I'll take my turn
    And fan the flames
    As your blazes burn

    We can't wait
    To burn it to the ground

    When you fall, I'll take my turn
    And fan the flames
    As your blazes burn

    We can't wait
    To burn it to the ground

    LIES GREED MISERY

    I'ma be that nail in your coffin. Sayin' that I soften?
    I was duckin' down to reload, so you can save your petty explanations.
    I don't have the patience. Before you even say it, I know.
    You won't let your pride or your ego talk slick to me, no.
    That is not the way I get down and look at how you lose your composure
    Now let me show you exactly how the breaking point sounds.

    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    What is it you want me to tell ya?
    I am not the failure
    I would rather live and let be
    But you came with the right kinda threat to
    Push me to let you know you can't intimidate me
    You disrespect me so clearly/Now you better hear me
    That is not the way it goes down
    You did it to yourself and it's over
    Now let me show ya/Exactly how the breaking point sound

    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery (x2)

    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    You did it to yourself
    (x4)

    You did it to yourself!
    (x4)

    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery
    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    I'LL BE GONE

    Like shining oil, this night is dripping down
    Stars are slipping down, glistening
    And I'm trying not to think what I'm leaving now
    And no deceiving now. It's time you let me know.
    Let me know...

    When the lights go out and we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence, I'll be gone
    I'll be gone...
    Let the sun fade out and another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow, I'll be gone
    I'll be gone...

    This air between us is getting thinner now
    Into winter now, bittersweet.
    And 'cross that horizon, this sun is setting down
    And you're forgetting now, it's time you let me go
    Let me go...

    When the lights go out and we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence, I'll be gone
    I'll be gone...
    Let the sun fade out and another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow, I'll be gone
    I'll be gone...

    And tell the lie, I couldn't help myself
    And tell them I was alone
    Oh tell me I am the only one
    and there's nothing left to stop me.

    When the lights go out and we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence, I'll be gone
    I'll be gone...
    Let the sun fade out and another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow, I'll be gone
    I'll be gone...

    I'll be gone...

    CASTLE OF GLASS

    Take me down to the river-bend
    Take me down to the fighting end
    Wash the poison from off my skin
    Show me how to be whole again

    Fly me up on a silver wing
    Past the black where the sirens sing
    Warm me up in the nova's glow
    And drop me down to the drink below

    Cause I'm only a crack, in this castle of glass
    Hardly anything left, for you to see
    For you to see...

    Bring me home in a blinding dream
    Through the secrets that I have seen
    Wash the sorrow from off my skin
    And show me how to be whole again

    Cause I'm only a crack, in this castle of glass
    Hardly anything left, for you to see
    For you to see...

    Cause I'm only a crack, in this castle of glass
    Hardly anything else, for me to be...

    Cause I'm only a crack, in this castle of glass
    Hardly anything left, for you to see
    For you to see...

    VICTIMIZED

    No regrets for the confidence betrayed, no more hiding in shadow
    'Cause I won't wait for the debt to be repaid
    The time has come for you...

    Victimized, victimized, never again, victimized
    Victimized, victimized, never again, victimized

    They're acting like they want a riot/It's a riot I'll give 'em
    As the siren climbs higher on this violent rhythm
    These snake in the grass/Supplying the venom
    I ain't scared of your teeth/I admire what's in 'em
    You'll be waiting in the shadows there/Thinking you're hidden
    But the truth is you don't have the stomach to get 'em.
    Lauren already hit 'em, yeah you got to be kidd'n.
    Wanna talk about a victim? Imma put you there with 'em.

    Victimized, victimized, never again, victimized
    Victimized, victimized, never again, victimized

    ROADS UNTRAVELED

    Weep not for roads untraveled...
    Weep not for paths alone...
    'Cause beyond every bend, is a long blinding end
    It's the worse kind of pain, I've known...

    Give up your heart left broken...
    And let that mistake pass on
    'Cause the love, that you lost, wasn't worth, what it cost
    and in time you'll be glad it's gone...

    Woah. Oh.
    Woah. Oh.
    Woah. Oh.

    Woah. Oh.
    Woah. Oh.
    Woah. Oh.

    Weep not for roads untraveled...
    Weep not for sights unseen...
    May your love, never end, and if you, need a friend
    There's a seat here, along side me...

    Woah. Oh.
    Woah. Oh.
    Woah. Oh.

    Woah. Oh.
    Woah. Oh.
    Woah. Oh.

    SKIN TO BONE

    Skin to bone, steel to rust. Ash to ashes, dust to dust.
    Let tomorrow have its way, with the promises we made.
    Skin to bone, steel to rust...

    Ash to ashes, dust to dust. Your deception, my disgust.
    When your name has finally drawn, I'll be happy that you're gone.
    Ash to ashes, dust to dust...

    Ahhhh, ash to ashes, dust to dust.
    Ahhhh, skin to bone and steel to rust.

    Right to left, left to right. Night to day and day to night.
    As the starlight fades to grey, I'll be marching far away.
    Right to left and left to right...

    Ahhhh, ash to ashes, dust to dust.
    Ahhhh, skin to bone and steel to rust.

    Let tomorrow have its way, with the promises betrayed
    Skin to bone and steel to rust...

    Skin to bone and steel to rust...
    Skin to bone and steel to rust.

    UNTIL IT BREAKS

    It goes a one, two, three....

    I was born with the hunger of a lion/The strength of a sun
    I don't need to sweat it when the competition come
    Original style like an 808 drum/So I don't run the track
    No, I make the track run.
    My mama taught me words/My daddy built rockets
    I hold 'em both together now/Tell me what I got
    It's/A pretty small weapon:
    I can shoot it/I can drop it
    But/Learn to respect it 'cause you clearly can't stop it like that

    Yeah it aint over/'Cause the sharks on the left side/The snakes on the right
    And anything you do/They wanna get a little bite
    It really doesn't matter if you're wrong/Or if you're right
    'Cause/Once you get the teeth in/Nothing really fights

    Except for me/I do it like I got nothing to lose
    And you can run your mouth like you could try to fill my shoes
    But steady little soldier/I ain't standing next to you
    I can lay it on the ground before you're even in my view
    Like that.

    Give me the strength of the rising sun
    Give me the truth of the words unsung
    And when the last bells ring, the poor men sing:
    "Bring me to kingdom come"

    This is something for your people on the block to/black out and rock to,
    Give you whatcha need like Poppa/"Who shot ya?"
    Separate the weak from the obselete/You're meek/I creep hard on imposters
    And switch styles on the dime/Quick-witted ya'll/Quit tripping
    I don't have time for your crying
    I grind tough/Sucka, make your mind up,
    Are you in the firing squad or are you in the line-up?
    Bang bang/Little monkey-man playing
    With the big guns only get you slain/And I ain't playing
    I'm just saying/You ain't gotta sliver of a chance
    I get iller, I deliver/While you quiver in your pants,
    So shake, shake-down/Money, here's the break down
    You can play the bank/I'ma play the bank take down
    And no mistakes now/I'm coming to getcha
    I'm just a Banksy/You're a Brainwash/Get the picture?
    It's like that..

    We swim against the rising waves and crash against the shore
    The body bends until it breaks, the early morning sings no more...
    So rest your head, it's time to sleep, and dream of what's in store
    The body bends until it breaks, then sings again no more...
    'Cause time has torn the flesh away, the early morning sings no more...

    POWERLESS

    You hid your skeletons, when I had shown you mine
    You woke the devil that, I thought you'd left behind
    I saw the evidence, the crimson soaking through
    Ten thousand promises, ten thousand ways to lose

    And you held it all, but you were careless to let it fall
    You held it all, and I was by your side, powerless...

    I watched you fall apart and chased you to the end
    I'm left with emptiness that words cannot defend
    You'll never know what I, became because of you
    Ten thousand promises, ten thousand ways to lose

    And you held it all, but you were careless to let it fall
    You held it all, and I was by your side, powerless...

    Ohhhh.

    And you held it all, but you were careless to let it fall
    You held it all, and I was by your side, powerless...

    Ohhhh.

    Powerless...
    Powerless...
