Resonate XV- If You Fear Dying

So much of our problems lie in our fear. 

Fear is control.

Control is slavery.

We control our fear and hold the keys to our freedom.

One Day As a Lion- If You Fear Dying Lyrics

the bastard son i spit non fiction
in exile for a while now with raw friction
never be a pawn the boomerang be upon you
i’m like Fela with my heart in Venezuela
its a world favela so fuck the novela
i’m out of the cellar with a blade and some cheddar
for the whole new world order you to bow down
to the now sound of slavery the era be
terrible terror filled terrified
why would we ever let a few white christian fiction’s
shape our tomorrow followers them
cause tomorrow got a gun to its head
(chorus)
the time is coming
rising like the dawn of a red sun
if you fear dying then you’re already dead

i’m in with the spirit of Ali Touré
as I target more heads than a priest on ash wednesday
paid and hanging you pigs on gold ropes
have the mic or the heater but you can’t hold both
you could snatch one and catch the blast of the other
i’m Chicano soprano high off my pitch ammo
i’m a put a crack in your diamond pimp cup
so vest up i’m your cross turned right side up
i’m the press leak that downed you aide
i’m the orange jump suit thats taylor made
i’m the crescent, the sickle, so sharp the blade
i’m the flick of the shank that opened your veins
i’m the dusk, i’m the frightening calm
i’m a hole in the pipeline i’m a road side bomb

Bonus-  One Day As A Lion: Wild International

Wild International

They Say That In War
That Truth
Be The First Casualty
So I Dig In Selector
I The Resurrector
Fly My Shit
Sever Your Neck
Wider Than Ever
With My Tongue
Dipped In Funk Arsenic
Burn This Illusion
This Lie
This Straight Arson Shit
Your Arsenal Stripped
Power Ain’t Full Jackets
And Clips
It’s My Ability
To Define Phenomenon
Raw Crenshaw ’84
Boogie Down Before
L.A.
When The War Break Off
Where You Be Take Off
Stand In Full Face Off
With The M1 Millimeter
Let The Rhythm
Of The Chamber Hit ’em
Let The Rich Play
Catch With ’em
Better Yet Make ’em Eat
‘Em And Shit ’em
Till They
So Full Of Holes
That They Drown
In Their Own
I’m Like A Nail Stuck
In The Wrist
Of They Christmas
Don’t Need Radio
To Leave Their Family
A Witness

Muhammad
And Christ Would Like
Would Lay
Your Body Down
To A Tune
So Wild International
In The Desert
Full Of Bullets
Let Your Body Rot
With My Chrome
With My Verse
With My Body Rock

In This Era
Where DJs Behave
Be Paid To Be Slaves
We Raid Airwaves
To Be Sane
And What’s Raining
From The Station
Cash Fascination
Like Living Dead
Fed Agents
Distract Us Fast
From A Disaster’s
Wrath For Sure
Air War Was Flooded
Like The 9th Ward
On The AM, On The AM
Turn And Face Them
Hatred And Mayhem
Slay Them, Dangerous
I Take Razor Steps
It’s The Swing
From The Bling
To The Bang On The Left
It’s The Murderous Return
Boom Back Full Strap
Your Six
That Got Clipped
You Can’t Clap Back
With Minimal Lift
And Criminal Flow
I’m Killing Them Soft
And Billing Them For
Everything Stole
And Once Again
I’m That Nail
In The Wrist
Of They Christmas
Watch Me
Make Their Family
A Witness

Muhammad
And Christ Would Like
Would Lay
Your Body Down
To A Tune
So Wild International
In The Desert
Full Of Bullets
Let Your Body Rot
With My Chrome
With My Verse
With My Body Rock

Muhammad
And Christ Would Life
Would Lay
Your Body Down
To A Tune
So Wild International
In The Desert
Full Of Bullets
Let Your Body Rot
With My Chrome
With My Verse
With My Body Rock

 Bonus 2- One Day As A Lion

Blood soaked earth that you call home
Close your eyes but don’t sleep
We comin’ like peoples army
For the people who can’t eat
Who work with no sleep
For the child
With no shoes on their feet
A generation who flash heat
Who role up on the banks
For their cash see
You’re the criminal?
You got the nerve to ask me
Tear mics till my voice get raspy
Faced flame for five centuries
And if LA were Baghdad we’d be Iraqi
With our straps in the backseat
Next to a general tied up
With shit in his khakis
Best leave my mic alone I’m full grown
And I’m off to the green zone
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/o/one_day_as_a_lion/one_day_as_a_lion.html ]
After dark my city’s a fuse
After dark my city’s a fuse
One day I say today we live as a lion

Blood soaked earth that you call home

I heard this cat got life in the pen
Crossing sand in the back of a truck bed
Twelve deep heard sirens and lights red
Was smacked on his dome with the club of
A white fed
No food no water no rights read
He came north to keep his seeds
And his wife fed
In the middle of the darkest night bled
Stepped to the law and said
You a minuteman wait a minute man
Talk like that might limit your life span

After dark my city’s a fuse
One day I say today we live as a lion
And when our cubs grow
We’ll show you what war is good for
