emancipate your primal hate
give in to love and make a break
flash your eyes and bare your teeth
monster beats are sheathed beneath
polluted skies and broken streets

juxtapose this fantasy
with creeping pop reality
raise a flag and take the streets
remind yourself of power unleashed
but keep it real and get some sleep

again we walk through tragedy
and laugh to ward off pain so deep
killing the mind putting hope to sleep
mud wrestling in the dragon’s keep

emancipation liberation
freedom songs and rich libations
pave the way for spirit’s rise
through the skies like boys gone wild
gritted teeth and open eyes
armed and wired to organize
