lyrics

When life in the fast lane drives you insane,
When your under the strain and drink away the pain,
Get your head in the game or hang it in shame,
In the eye of the universe we're all the same!

You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain,
But remember that fame is rented space in the brain,
The yin and the yang, the whole shebang,
In the eye of the universe we're all the same!

[Verse 1: C-Doc]
I'd put the TV on on Sunday but the Patriots cheat,
and Colin Kaepernick can't play because the words that he speaks,
Are considered too dangerous by the rich and elite,
If you bite the hand that feeds you you get nothing to eat,
I guess I'd rather starve in the street,
But my kids are gettin hungry so I gotta pay the piper for a seat,
At the table for some 'taters and meat,
They can keep their appraisal because their lowlife labels are kinda weak,
If they tell you that your future is bright well then it's bleak,
Used to visit in the dead of the night under a sheet,
Now they say it's about white rights they want to keep,
I guess too many of us are still asleep,
And so I'm rockin head-cracking Headsnack beats,
Cause I can't start it over like control-alt-delete,
And Trump told the Nazis they were very fine peeps,
After they ran that woman down in the street.

[Chorus]
When life in the fast lane drives you insane,
When your under the strain and drink away the pain,
Get your head in the game or hang it in shame,
In the eye of the universe we're all the same!

You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain,
But remember that fame is rented space in the brain,
The yin and the yang, the whole shebang,
In the eye of the universe we're all the same!

[Verse 2: Headsnack]:
This is my autobiography discography,
Spin it like poetry pottery on an impossible odyssey,
From the bottom to the top of me
I'm popping a lobotomy,
Dropping bodily flows in the throws of technology,
Like congress's lack of progress making a mockery
of the sovereignty, a puzzle of ideology and politics like Socrates,
Making a divine comedy of our sick bureaucracy,
a self-fulfilling prophecy, not passing the policies,
Committing highway robbery of scarce commodities,
This flow is possibly a novelty,
Musicology bringing camaraderie to all the colonies,
I shred heads like broccoli on focaccia,
Ferkakteh rock lobster rhyme kickboxing prodigy
call me the helicopter, hella beat chopper,
knockin’ you outta your posture with my philosophies.

[Chorus]
When life in the fast lane drives you insane,
When your under the strain and drink away the pain,
Get your head in the game or hang it in shame,
In the eye of the universe we're all the same!

You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain,
But remember that fame is rented space in the brain,
The yin and the yang, the whole shebang,
In the eye of the universe we're all the same!

{verse 3: Bona Fide}
Backstory surprised how similar
Slaying getting crushed till that one come deliver ya
Find a nine to five grind for the corporation
Current situation requires annihilation
See their perspiration somebody shook
True and living lead not inanimate book
Politicains switching to the beat of greed
Sins of the fathers self destruct seed
Parent replacing love with material
War least of our worries that’s what we fearing tho
17 years we been killing in the sand
I’m just catching up on Scandal screen in my hand
Culture Alboatross belly plastic
Flesh three times a day, mad sick
You would think this would cause mad pain
But in the center of the cyclone we all the same

[Chorus]
When life in the fast lane drives you insane,
When your under the strain and drink away the pain,
Get your head in the game or hang it in shame,
In the eye of the universe we're all the same!

You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain,
But remember that fame is rented space in the brain,
The yin and the yang, the whole shebang,
In the eye of the universe we're all the same!
