Track Name: Verde - Thousands More (Live @ Ollies Point)
To those vultures that resolve to take your life away
You'd better watch what they do because its not what they say
Sporting new suits and ties to help deliver their lies
But they've got no brains and no vertebrae
With their hands in your pockets from cradle to grave
They're robbing the futures of all they enslave
They're mocking our rights, right in the home of the brave
The pressures building up into a giant shock wave

Ignoring moral and logical
proven economical
agendas of things to be done
But if united we stand
No longer under command
Though the battle has not yet begun
We just won

Assaults on our freedoms, a barrage on our rights
They're out-manned and they know it
They do not want this fight
They must think that we believe that we don't have a choice
Every one that they silence thousands more raise their voice
Thousands More!

In this oppression of hope
Data designed to confuse
History is our witness
We cannot lose
Its our time, this is our time
Its now!
Track Name: Verde - Ominous1 (Live @ Ollies Point)
Sick of living but unwilling to die
I cant see his face but I can see through his eyes
I'm mapping his marks and reading his lies
Reliving the killings but no reasons why

My hand keeps on writing like it knows it all
The letters keep coming more bodies will fall
Im trying to fathom the depths of his rage
Until I decode this California's a cage

Her life draining to an uncertain death
Blood spurting and spilling all over her dress
Someone will find her she wont die this time
But I'll leave this message so they know that she's mine

The puzzles the cyphers just fall into place
I can see through his eyes but I cant see his face
He left us these letters he enjoys the chase
Faced with the clues he erased such a waste

No quench for his thirst, our throats both run dry
Your tears of hatred roll down from our eyes
The feel of his pain, it runs through my soul
There is no escape, hes lost all control

Slashes and screams and bullets and blades
Collecting my slaves for my kingdom of graves
His hood done in black with a target in white
Taking delight from their fear in the night
So run if you must right into my trap
All hope is crushed there's no turning back
Dealing my pain its too much to bear
Cant carry this burden and therefore I share

Now I know. I am who you are
I may go away but I'll never be far
Because my fires not out its just burning low
and where I'll strike next only I know

I almost cant wait until my next attack
I took 37 but they wont be the last
I'll see you in Hell, and its been a blast
So until next time, Signed...
Track Name: Verde - Scared (Live @ Ollies Point)
Are you scared? Do you want to go home?
... or maybe play it off and just use the phone?
Well, you made a decision, its too late to eject
Now here it comes, what the f**k did you expect?
I just cant be free until you get the f**k away from me
and you are scared and cold just thinking what this night could hold
and I have visited the land of pixies and the living dead
and you just don't have a clue about what is in store for you

Now either calm down or you can get the f**k out
because I told you you had no idea what this was about
and now your eyes start to widen and your ears start to ring
so follow me and we'll go do our thing
its just a ticket to open a door
there is nothing logical here anymore
I see what you see and I saw what you saw
Nothing ever quite looked just like this before
Are you scared?
You'd best be.
Track Name: Verde - Brain Obey (Live @ Ollies Point)
There's only some days that my brain obeys
it opens up and words tumble onto the page
you cant force it out, my mind is like a maze
it tries to engage in 15 different ways
then after countless synaptic delays
it retreats and it creeps back into its cage
brain, obey!

get back on track, and pick up some speed
inhale some O2, because that's all it should need
Its calls the shots and I just follow its lead
Its ultimate goal I think is just to be freed.
Brain, obey me!

Try to control my mind, no matter what the cost
but I fear what I'll find, I think it might be lost
I struggle for control while all my thoughts explode
The master of my mind, counter strike the overload
I wont be left behind, defend my thoughts and pray
My enemies are blind and I will seize the day
This war cannot be lost, I will fight 'till I'm whole
My hand will not be forced, (may) these actions be extolled.
Track Name: Verde - My Land (Live @ Ollies Point)
What's wrong with these people today
The shootings and stabbings and lootings they're grabbing more headlines everyday
Just last night I watched I riot I seen the cops out on the street
With their batons and shooting folks methodical and neat

Decades of corpses in the gutters
These towns are filled with Death
How many years can this go on
Until nobody's left
Children born in smoke and fire
broken glass and more barbed wire
Ancient fights forged in their minds
killing over holy shrines
Stories worsen as they're told
Lifeless shells of 5 year olds
...and they say that peace is so close
but both sides don't know when
They're gonna break the calm
with another pipe bomb
and start it all again

When a punch in the face won't cut it
then something's not quite right
There's some serious s**t going on downtown when the fires start to light
All full of hate and anger
but cant remember why
When hearts and minds are out for blood then someone's gonna die

A woman begs for mercy it echos in the night
Their eyes are stone, their hearts are cold
They're out for blood tonight

What's wrong with these people today
The shootings and stabbings and lootings they're grabbing more headlines everyday
Just last night I watched I riot I seen the crowd swarming the street
Throwing rocks and shooting folks methodical and neat

When a punch in the face won't cut it
then something's not quite right
There's some serious s**t going on downtown when the fires start to light
All full of hate and anger
but cant remember why
When hearts and minds are out for blood then someone's gonna die

A woman begs for mercy it echos in the night
Their eyes are stone, their hearts are cold
They're out for blood tonight
Track Name: Verde - STAB (Live @ Ollies Point)
Regulate, enforce and implement my struggle
Minority, priority, majority, it has to be me
If Earth is our Hell, then our Heaven is Death
No fight, no life
Slapped for taking a breath

Nothing. No thing. A thing is anything.
Void is a thing, it has a word, a name
A name is a word and a word describes either a thing or a concept
A concept is also a thing because it has just been described
But nothing, no thing, is absolutely no thing.
No concept that can be described in any way
words, sound, art
Darkness is a thing, space is a thing, vacuum is a thing
The absence of thing, truly no thing.

The reason chi or true understanding of the world, the universe and oneself cannot be found is because its found in nothing.
Nothing cannot be changed, explained, shaped or manipulated
It can only be understood
and only the individuals interpretation of or in the understanding of nothing will determine which path this understanding will take the individual.

Let everything stop and this moment continue to exist

Be careful, lest they cast out the Devil - they cast the best thing out of you

Slapped for taking a breath
Slapped for being
Slapped for taking a breath
Track Name: Verde - Portrait of Madness (Live @ Ollies Point)
Its time to paint my portrait of madness
use the human mind as my canvas
I use mixed emotions as my paint
Swirling red, love fear and hate
I can now see what sanity was
A spot forever fading with each stroke of my brush
The human mind is endless but it cannot hold much
I'm drawing madness, you must think I'm nuts

Its time to paint my portrait of madness
use the human mind as my canvas
I use mixed emotions as my paint
With this swirling red, love fear and hate

My mouth dries out as I stare
at the painting that I just put there
Its so defined, every color's unique
My eyes turn inside and my will becomes weak
I cant understand my thoughts as I look
The portrait grips my mind like a meat hook
The world fades as the picture grows bright
It smiles at me from some inner light

Its time to paint my portrait of madness
use the human mind as my canvas
I use mixed emotions as my paint
With this swirling red, love fear and hate
Something clicks, now I cant wait
For the end of that love, that fear, that hate.
