lyrics

V1: Spittin the rhyme but not the venom/
while I talk at the hookers in cheap boots and denim
Standing on a corner, not knowing what they sellin
hot pink not scared to be seen with a villain
while her pimp rolls around in a rented escalade/
I see you troll life thinkin you got it made
but flipping the verb in life made me a renegade/
no question of what to do if it fades away
Dreaming and scheming, these demons are screamin/
holy hell to bring fat assholes to reason
drink the fountain of youth you see in your scope/
like a shaky reality that you hold up with hope
so we send it to the ether and figure its dope/
will I fall out and back down now? Fucking nope.
Dreaming of a better life like a ring you can't find/
cause I'm sick of sharing what goes on in my mind
Too many try to think but just don't know/
where my life is going and how it'll flow
Its like a backwards process to keep you on you toes/
oppressed and recessed too much my life is in tow
Behind them, like that baggage they carry
like a man in a fight just trying to be daring
he'll stand up and put his name on a dotted line
knowing damn well that its not alright
that sick and empty feeling he gives into at night
drinking himself to death over the bill of rights
he gave up his freedoms to reach for something greater
rather than be a victim of a system sequestered
they fight like rocky but never hit leather
/only to be found dead, in the nether

:Chorus:I'm not a prophet, im not a hero
Just trying to bring my life back to zero
and can I say just what might change your mind
like an Anti-evangelist on a daily grind

v2: Evangelism is like cannibalism/ when you force your beliefs and choke hold the provisions
cutting off a way of life for so many/ just so you can feel like they owe you plenty?
well I see a route of a different kind/ if your truth is evident then why you so fucking blind?
There's another way and it dont involve force/
you ignore their suffering your life is scorched earth
now, what should you say when the world keeps you down?
And everything you do be aggravating them clowns?
Thats why they fill the bandwagon every time/
with holy books not bombs to destroy your mind
and i've looked hard in this life for a rhyme and a reason/
found mental nirvana and to me thats pleasin
but these fuckers are brain-dead in all four seasons/
not ever having a clue, yet still thinkin

Chorus:
I'm not a prophet, im not a hero
Just trying to bring my life back to zero
and can I say just what might change your mind
like an Anti-evangelist on a daily grind

Solo
V3: Lonely's just a word but it holds a special meaning
if you walk the streets alone cause they walked upon you dreamin
I guess the world is on my head
a fit of dirty schemes plus all the pain and longing puts you out on the street
now I ain't got a past, but ain't got a friend/
I killed em off sometime ago inside my crazy head
when I snapped their fucking neck/
it wasn't a just cause, and I thought they all deserved it
and i know that makes you pause
don't wanna be attached to something I never had/
cause in my family fathers day was just a fucking fad
mother was a preacher, step-father was an ass, and i'm stuck as the bad guy a simple outcast
sick and unbelievable was my diagnosis/
Quarantined like the plague they avoid me like tuberculosis
fuck them, I dont need their help
I find a soul like mine everyday all by myself
sometimes I find a cancer to society ingrained
inside anomalies; a parody of life's sick parade
I wish it all would end in a fiery disgrace
but even inside a mushroom cloud I still find my place
here's a man breakin it down for your entertainment
Break the chain n burn it down, just try to contain it
cause I feel something creeping up, raising on my neck
maybe the guilt from living life on the corner of the edge
but life would have a meaning If I said just what I felt
but I guess thats why Im lonely here, hanging from this belt

Chorus:
I'm not a prophet, im not a hero
Just trying to bring my life back to zero
and can I say just what will change your mind
like an Anti-evangelist on a daily grind

Im not a prophet, Im not a hero
Just trying to get my life back to zero
so watch me say something to change your mind like
an Anti-evangelist on a daily grind
