Mister Kellog, Mister Root, may I purchase if you please<br> That crummy little town right beside the Euphrates<br> The people need our help there, 'cause they're trying to build bombs<br> Like the ones we built for Japan, and then for Viet-Nam !<br><p>

I'll tell my lies and the people will believe 'em<br> And even if they don't, they'll think I'm mighty brave<br> I'll print my lies in Arabic and Farsi and Russian<br> No one can read them anyway, and the Democrats will cave !<br><p>

Well we got to the town, and it looked pretty good,<br> Been a bomb where the statue of the Saddam once stood,<br> The little kids all smiled at us and gave us the thumbs-up<br> One of 'em had a machine gun, the sweet little pup !<br><p>

I'll tell my lies and the people will believe 'em<br> And even if they don't, they'll think I'm mighty brave<br> I'll print my lies in English and French and Italian<br> No one can read them anyway, and the Republicans will cave !<br><p>

We went to the next town, it looked about the same,<br> Hajji started shootin' at us, he didn't know the game<br> They blew up four of our tanks, but that didn't matter much<br> 'Cause all of the reporters were kept safely out of touch !<br><p>

I'll tell my lies and the people will believe 'em<br> And even if they don't, they'll think I'm mighty brave<br> I'll print my lies in German and Vietnamese and Gaelic<br> No one can read them anyway, and the tree-huggers will cave !<br><p>

It's been ten years, we knew how to stay the course,<br> Our mission is accomplished, but the U.N. won't endorse.<br> If they don't change their attitude, we've got another plan,<br> Just drop all our atom bombs on Korea and Iran !<br><p>

I'll tell my lies and the people will believe 'em<br> And even if they don't, they'll think I'm mighty brave<br> I'll print my lies in Portuguese and Japanese and Creole<br> No one can read them anyway, and the Americans will cave !<br><p>

Dystopian Lullaby - by BELT

Dark the hour of man, and still you smile, still you laugh away Empire rising high and still no care for the price we’ll pay People with no money do not matter any longer Not that we ever have, or ever will anytime soon

Some say elites are trying to wipe us out It wouldn’t be a big surprise amidst the cover of said lies “Feed the rich, decrease the poor” Whatdja think the war was for? And that’s why healthcare sucks - Cause they want you to die (die…)

You think I’m kidding
Still you go to work and do their bidding Turn the wheel, pay the bill So some rich fuck can meet his fill It’s time to tear it down and start again Take control away from all these wild and crazy white men

Hate and fear have made of you a slave to their capital If we broke it down and organized we could have it all There’s enough to share if people all pitched in Not that we ever have, or ever will any time soon

…Oo yeah…

"Empire State Of Mind" (feat. Alicia Keys)

Yeah

[Verse 1: Jay-Z] Yea I'm out that Brooklyn, now I'm down in TriBeCa right next to Deniro, but I'll be hood forever I'm the new Sinatra, and... since I made it here I can make it anywhere, yea, they love me everywhere I used to cop in Harlem, all of my Dominicano's right there up on Broadway, pull me back to that McDonald's Took it to my stashbox, 560 State St. catch me in the kitchen like a Simmons with them Pastry's Cruisin' down 8th St., off white Lexus drivin' so slow, but BK is from Texas Me, I'm out that Bed-Stuy, home of that boy Biggie now I live on Billboard and I brought my boys with me Say what's up to Ty-Ty, still sippin' mai tai's sittin' courtside, Knicks & Nets give me high five Nigga I be Spike'd out, I could trip a referee Tell by my attitude that I'm most definitely from....

[Chorus: Alicia Keys] New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of There's nothin' you can't do Now you're in New York These streets will make you feel brand new Big lights will inspire you Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York

[Verse 2: Jay-Z] Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game Shit, I made the Yankee hat more famous then a Yankee can You should know I bleed blue, but I ain't a Crip though but I got a gang of niggas walkin' with my clique though Welcome to the melting pot, corners where we sellin' rock Afrika Bambataa shit, home of the hip-hop Yellow cab, gypsy cab, dollar cab, holla back for foreigners it ain't for, they act like they forgot how to act 8 million stories, out there in it naked City, it's a pity, half of y'all won't make it Me, I got a plug, Special Ed "I Got It Made" If Jeezy's payin' LeBron, I'm payin' Dwyane Wade Three dice cee-lo, three Card Monty Labor Day Parade, rest in peace Bob Marley Statue of Liberty, long live the World Trade Long live the King yo, I'm from the Empire State that's

[Chorus:]

[Verse 3: Jay-Z] Lights is blinding, girls need blinders so they can step out of bounds quick, the sidelines is lined with casualties, who sip to life casually then gradually become worse, don't bite the apple eve Caught up in the in-crowd, now you're in style Anna Wintour gets cold, in Vogue with your skin out City of sin, it's a pity on the wind Good girls gone bad, the city's filled with them Mami took a bus trip, now she got her bust out Everybody ride her, just like a bus route Hail Mary to the city, you're a virgin And Jesus can't save you, life starts when the church end Came here for school, graduated to the high life Ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight MDMA got you feelin' like a champion The city never sleeps, better slip you an Ambien

[Chorus:]

[Bridge: Alicia Keys] One hand in the air for the big city Street lights, big dreams, all lookin' pretty No place in the world that could compare Put your lighters in the air Everybody say "yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"
