Intro:

The television screen is the retina of the mind's eye.
Therefore, the television screen is part of the physical structure of the brain. Therefore, whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore, television is reality, and reality is less than television.

I understood writing could be dangerous.
I didn’t realize the danger came from the machinery...
What are you talking about?
I show you...

Verse: One -- D-tech --

My pen is a weapon; my mind is a shield
The hour's eleven; and seven's the seal
I'm changing the deal; the devils are broken
I'm killing them all; I'm lost in the moment
I'm feeling so lost; this mic that I touch
Will combust; and burst open the lies that you trust
I'm seeing the heart; I'm feeling the brain
Illogical patterns; I switch and arrange
I'm seeing some change; in the eyes of the strange
We rise to despise; erasing the pain
Never the same; we're putting the blame
In the core of our strength; as we strengthen our game
We're breaking the chain; as we shatter the frame
All over the place; as the essence remains
Time to pursue; the bricks that we layed
On the path that we set; with the peace that we made
Never a slave; the road that they pave
Is bound for destruction; in less then a day
They're bound to seduce; but I'll give you the truth
Independency's king; and we are the proof

Hook: 2x -- D-tech --

If you settle for lies; it's your demise
If you battle your mind; it's not your life
Yank on the chain; and just pull it apart
Kickstart your brain; and pump up your heart

Interlude:

I understood writing could be dangerous.
I didn’t realize the danger came from the machinery...
What are you talking about?
I show you...

Verse: Two -- Kawil --

What if the true is outnumbered; would the majority be frauds?
...Is a secret still a secret; if it can be bought?
When it comes to knowledge of self, they’re...dropping the ball
What is a cause without effect; if it’s affecting us all?
See...these demons crawl; into ya ear like these hihats
Come against me; and you’ll see 'em crawling-right-back
Back to where it all began; claiming that they're keeping it real
Matter of fact; they're 'two-faced' like 'Harvey Dent'
Ain’t no 'Man of Steel'; just a manufactured appeal
If you go to school; than you already know-the-deal
Scratch off the seal of concepts; that be accepted
Generally accepted; doesn't mean you have to adapt-it
I reject-it...but still...they got my 'Soul On Ice'
Time to break free; label me... LONE GUNNER for life
So F what all you so-called...know-it-alls think of me
...I drop heat; knowing God is...within me

Hook: 2x -- D-tech --
