lyrics

Nobull
Its ominous days we’re lost in this modernist maze
Casino capitalists play for monopoly stakes
Real life pain to them it’s a property game
Whilst the bottom play the lottery or solemnly pray
The media’s got the populace properly trained
To turn our hate inwards in a labatomous state
Divide by our sex, class and often our race
But me I fight racism and misogyny mate
It’s not for debate non-white women face greater burdens
2 dollars a day the kinda pay that they’re earning
Sexploitation at a rate that’s disturbing
When girls as young as six watch their weight its concerning
We’re bringing home the bacon for these pigs that lie to me
Cameron’s a little man we’re the BIG SOCIETY
He’s just a front not the one who gives the demands
The real puppet master is the invisible hand

Chorus
Mass Production, Mass Consumption
Its critical mass in this mass dysfunction
Mass confusion, Mass corruption
Our class has suffer for this crap to function
Mass Production, Mass Consumption
The Mass media’s a weapon of mass destruction
Need a mass movement against this mass corruption
So Prose and VT got the masses bumping

Efeks
I feel the pressure of the world on these shoulders
As a poor family mourns another street soldier
The heat smoulders hell fire and brimstone
Slowly dying from the bacon I bring home
The chickens have been cloned sick with a syndrome
Another white rapper’s get rich with a ring tone
My phone is cancerous killing my sanity
Images on the idiot box that never challenge me
I never dumb down I ain’t for the salary
I’m living for the music and the love from my family
I’m doing this with diligence others will haphazardly
Put together bars and hooks that lack clarity
Tragedy brings pain witness a heretic
I’m seeing new faces hearing the same rhetoric
Prose and Verbal Terrorists connect for your benefit
Rhyming for a reason we ain’t here for the hell of it (fuck ya deficit!)

Chorus

Nobull
It’s a board-game CEOs play musical chairs
And who really cares so long as they’re not losing your shares
Watch for political snakes and corporate career ladders
Fuck a war on terror don’t let the fear grab us
From the telly that distorts and distracts the youth
To the bombs that we drop on Gadaffi’s troops
And when we hit civilians, the body bags we use
Are mass produced for a profit and that’s the truth
A major label’s marketing the latest rhymer
Whilst my Ecko hoody label says “made in China”
Racked with guilt but hey I gotta stay designer
Fuck that pick a side time to make your mind up
There’s blood sweat and tears sat in your sock draw
They don’t want us linking sweatshop to shop floor
They want us fighting over less jobs while stocks soar
A rebel without much but this isn’t a lost cause

Chorus (x2 )
