A Line In the Sand Lyrics 06:35
No control / no surprise
Tossed the keys to the kingdom 
Down that hole in my eye
I’m my own / casualty
I fuck up everything I see
Fighting in futility
 
We start the final war
Tell me what’s worth fighting for
When we know there’s nothing more
We take the hand or fist
Just to sell ourselves for this
The path we least resist
 
No control / no surprise
Tossed the keys to the kingdom 
Down that hole in my eye
I’m my own / casualty
I fuck up everything I see
Fighting in futility
 
I give you what you came for / this is not the same though
Got a different method but I still can bring the pain so
Y’all stuck in that same flow / I got that insane flow
High as y’all can get you’re never really in my range though
Yes I’m half anglo / half fried panko
All prime-time rhymer / let the bass bang low
All you fucking lames go / aiming at my name, know
Careful what you shoot because you might hit what you aim for
 
No control / no surprise
Tossed the keys to the kingdom 
Down that hole in my eye
I’m my own / casualty
I’m my own
Casualty
So what ’cha waiting for
Anticipating more
While you debate what it could take to instigate a war
Yeah I been hated more than time I wasn’t hated for
There’s nothing they can fucking say they didn’t say before
But you could never see it
Your battle’s not mine
Wanna skate and play it safe but this is take a shot time
While you’re waiting for a purpose I already got mine
While you tell me step to it like 1, 2, 3, 4
 
And if I do what you demand
(You say) You’ll let me understand
(You say) You’re gonna hold me to your word
And if I sell myself away
(You say) I’ll have no debt to pay
(You say) I’m gonna get what I deserve
 
YOUR WORD / OBEYED
MY DEBT / REPAID
OUR TRUST / BETRAYED
ALL FOR NOTHING
ALL FOR NOTHING
 
Kick back there’s no other way to say it
So let me break this fucker down for ya
I really don’t know ya
You talk but let me show ya where to put your paranoia
You’re joking, I don’t have a half a sucker bone to throw ya
I’m disgusted, wonder what could’ve made ya tuck your tail below ya
And no I’m not your soldier I’m not taking any orders
I’m a five star general, infantry controller
Need a lesson?  Let me show ya
Have you checking your composure
While I make you step to it like 1, 2, 3, 4
Tell us all again
What you think we should be
What the answers are
What it is we can’t see
Tell us all again
How to do what you say
How to fall in line
How there’s no other way
But oh, we all know
 
You’re guilty all the same
Too sick to be ashamed
You want to point your finger
But there’s no one else to blame
 
Show us all again
That our hands are unclean
That we’re unprepared
That you have what we need
Show us all again
’Cause we cannot be saved
’Cause the end is near
Now there’s no other way
And oh, you will know
 
[Rakim]
Yeah, you already know what it is
Can y’all explain what kind of land is this
When a man has plans of being rich
But the bosses’ plans is wealthy?
Dirty money scheme, a clean split is nonsense
It’s insane
Even corporate hands is filthy
They talk team and take the paper route
All they think about is bank accounts, assets and realty
At anybody’s expense
No shame with a clear conscience
No regrets and guilt free
They claim that ain’t the way that they built me
The smoke screen before the flame
Knowing as soon as the dough or the deal peak
They say it’s time for things to change
Rearrange like good product rebuilt cheap
Anything if it’s more to gain
Drained, manipulated like artists, it’s real deep
Until no more remains
But I’m still me
Like authentic hip-hop and rock
’Til pop and radio and record companies killed me
Try to force me to stray and obey
And got the gall to say how real can real be
You feel me, we’ll see that green could be to blame
Or greedy for the fame
TV or a name
The media, the game
To me you’re all the same
You’re guilty
There’s no peace / only war
Victory decides who’s wrong or right
It will not cease / only grow
You better be prepared to fight
And it will not apologize
For laying down your life
 
War
 
There’s no pain / it will spare
Fear has become your only right
And once you’re lost / in your despair
Forever black eternal night
And it will not apologize
For laying down your life
 
War
Destroyer
War
Destroyer
 
It needs no side to justify
Laying down your life
 
War
Destroyer
War
This is war with no weapons
Marching with no stepping
Murder with no killing
Illin’ every direction
First / no sequel
Do the math / no equal
John with no Yoko:
More power less people 
And no I’m not afraid of that
Print it in your paperback
Every rap is made in fact to act as a delayed attack
Every phrase a razor blade that’s saved until they play it back
To slay and leave ’em laying on the pavement
Bang
Fade to black
 
In the wastelands of today
Where there’s nothing left to lose
And there’s nothing more to take
But you force yourself to choose
In the wastelands of today
Where tomorrow disappears
While the future slips away
And your hope turns into fear
In the wastelands of today
 
Roll credits you get it the show’s done
They’re talking for just talking but meaning, they got none
None of ’em come proper they talk like a shotgun but
How many got bred with integrity / not one / so no
I’m not afraid to see you suckers hold a blade to me
Ain’t a way to shake the ground I built before you came to be
Take it how you take it / I’m the opposite of vacancy
And this is not negotiation ya’ll can hate and wait and see
A fire needs a space to burn
A breath to build a glow
I’ve heard it said a thousand times
But now I know
 
That you don’t know what you’ve got
Oh you don’t know what you’ve got
No you don’t know what you’ve got
Until it’s gone
 
I thought I kept you safe and sound
I thought I made you strong
But something made me realize
That I was wrong
 
’Cause finding what you got sometimes
Is finding it alone
And I can finally see your light
When I let go
 
’Cause you don’t know what you’ve got
Until it’s gone
’Til it’s gone…
 
’Cause you don’t know what you’ve got
Oh you don’t know what you’ve got
No you don’t know what you’ve got
It’s your battle to be fought
No you don’t know what you’ve got
’Til it’s gone
I’ve seen the blood
I’ve seen the broken
The lost and the sights unseen
I want a flood
I want an ocean
To wash my confusion clean
 
I can’t resolve this empty story
I can’t repair the damage done
 
We are the fortunate ones
Who’ve never faced oppression’s gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of rebellion
 
We act it out
We wear the colors
Confined by the things we own
We’re not without
We’re like each other
Pretending we’re here alone
 
And far away, they burn their buildings
Right in the face of the damage done
 
We are the fortunate ones
Who’ve never faced oppression’s gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of rebellion
 
REBELLION, REBELLION
WE LOST BEFORE THE START
REBELLION, REBELLION
ONE BY ONE WE FALL APART
 
We are the fortunate ones
Who’ve never faced oppression’s gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of imitations of…
We are the fortunate ones
Who’ve never faced oppression’s gun
We are the fortunate ones
Imitations of rebellion
There’s a fragile game we play
With the ghosts of yesterday
If we can’t let go we’ll never say goodbye
No trace of what remains
No stones to mark the graves
Only memories we thought we could deny
 
There was so much more to lose
Than the pain I put you through
In my carelessness I left you in the dark
And the blood may wash away
But the scars will never fade
At least I know somehow I made a mark
 
In the dark
In the light
Nothing left
Nothing right
Tearing me apart with / the words you wouldn’t say
And suddenly tomorrow’s / a moment washed away
’Cause I don’t have a reason, and you don’t have the time
But we both keep on waiting for something we won’t find
 
The light on the horizon
Was brighter yesterday
With shadows floating over
The scars begin to fade
We said it was forever
But then it slipped away
Standing at the end of
The final masquerade
 
All I ever wanted / the secrets that you keep
All you ever wanted / the truth I couldn’t speak
’Cause I can’t see forgiveness, and you can’t see the crime
But we both keep on waiting for what we left behind
Today
We stood on the wall
We laughed at the sun
We laughed at the guns
We laughed at it all
And when they
They told us to go
We paid them no mind
Like every other time
But little did we know
 
Today
I looked for a sign
With flames in my hands
A line in the sand
Between yours and mine
And it came
Like fire from below
Your greed led the call
My flag had to fall
But little did you know
 
Another day / your truth will come
You’re gonna pay for what you’ve done
You’ll get what’s yours / and face your crime
You’ll tell them give me back what’s mine
Give me back what’s mine
 
I had never been a coward
I had never seen blood
You had sold me an ocean
And I was lost in the flood
We were counting on a leader
We were driven by need
But couldn’t take temptation
And we were blinded by greed
You were steady as a sniper
We were waiting on a wire
So we never saw it coming
When you ran from the fire
You can try intimidation
And you can try to ignore
But when the time comes calling, yeah
You are gonna get yours
 
And so today / your truth has come
You’re gonna pay for what you’ve done
You’ll get what’s yours / you’re out of time
And you will give me back what’s mine
Give me back what’s mine
