Crank City Lyrics – Caught in the Gears

You robots  suffer silently but me, I start complainin

My zeal for life, clogged with strife, is ever steadily wanin

Now I would turn on my TV set, but its so un-entertainin

Like Pourin piss up on my head, yeah and then they tell me that its rainin

So I left, all bereft,  hollow hole in my chest

broken and a  beaten just wishing I was deaf

Cuz my radio gone and done me wrong

every station round playing the same damn song

 

listen up kid, let’s all sing along

Step it up kid, cuz it’s comin on strong…

 

“COCA COLA, MOTOROLA, IBM and MAC,

PEPSI, NIKE, SONY, DISNEY, WALMART and the GAP” repeat

(They want us to saddle up and swallow all their crap.) said under second time

 

Shaddup shaddup just shut it shut it.

We get it. We got it. We bought it. You flaunt it.

Sure as shit jus let it rest wit knowing that we want it.

Singin Blood from a stone, leave me the fuck alone,

You kin take what you want cuz there is nothing that I own.

 

hey kids! in your crackerjack cul-de-sac

rollin

in your compact hatchback, soul patch, green yellow rrrred colored hackysack

 

(I) see you buyin records wit mama’s money at the mall

I don feel hate, nor pity you, I feel for you that’s all

Cuz we all heed the call when it come from below

….To rebuild what you got you gotta trash all that you know

oh oh oh

 

PAUSE

 

Well rah rah sis boom ba

Everybody talkin bout a coup d-etat

Better Pick a side quick, whether poor or bourgeois

Just a little stooge, or the whole mafia

But I will never call a truce, I will never call a draw

I attack with sound like they did inPanama

Ha ha.

 

Come on

Only little bit of time

Sing it for me all sweetlike.

 

“COCA COLA, MOTOROLA, IBM and MAC,

PEPSI, NIKE, SONY, DISNEY, WALMART and the GAP” repeat

(They want us to saddle up and swallow all their crap.) said under second time

 

Lily: storytime, told in rhyme

Hocus Pocus, how the locust, turned the earth to dust..

 

biological imperative, or maybe clever narrative to breed and feed until we need bigger badder planet just to live,

flying fill the sky, goodbye, bickabittuhbupsigh eat and eat,  shop and drop,

Buy or sell until we die

 

I’m all for copulatin’, hell.

But the population swell,

is choking out the our sinking hope and sealed our ticket straight to hell

a chrysalis, you on the precipice,

something bigger waitin now in spite of this?

 

one grasshopper told another grasshopper,

see that horny bitch there, ain’t nothing gonna stop her,

breeding and feeding babies, til the ground is dust

giant-sized babies we call the locust

now listen up,, I am all for copulatin

but the population swell,

sealed our ticket straight to hell

 

Music changes here: beatles….

YOU SAY YOU WANT A REVOLUTION, WELL, YOU KNOW

it don’t come cheap, one a you pussies pay the toll

better getta bigger loan, cuz the price is  steep

what you sow you’ve gotta reap. Right,

all the while  you sleep, tight

(here come the) army creep in the night

set site on the prize

they calculate your every need,

pre-formulate your every greed,

now baby you fulfilled?

poor bastards they been killed

but sugar  don’t you cry tonight.

shit we got a cause to fight

mm-hhmm here it come

mm.mm.mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

 

to keep you loaded up,

on  fancy cars and frappucino,

Livin large and hard, like your name is Al Pacino

.. Laughin our way to the poorhouse baby…aw, aw, aw fuck

Or truckin down toDisneylandto crash Mickey Mouse and Daisy Duck, whut?(wuhwuh)

 

Cuz where we gonna go when everywhere already owned,

The money all been loaned, the first born he been poned.

All roads lead to heaven when we got the worst intentions

Wit no Necessities we rest at ease upon our old inventions

Well rah rah sis boom ba

Everybody talkin bout a coup d-etat

Better Pick a side quick, whether poor or bourgeois

Just a little tiny stooge, or the whole mafia

But I will never call a truce, I will never call a draw

I attack with sound like they did in Panama
