KYSHERA - PARADIGM KONIC RECORDS 2010

WORDS & MUSIC BY JAMES KENNEDY

1) IF
Who would you save first? x16

2) PARADIGM
If you want to understand
The real politics of man
From the Empire to the San
Humanity is ruled by gangs

How many differences
Can you see when you scratch the surface
In the rule of crime & the rule of law
Just see your rulers as a gang, nothing more

And pay your protection to Tax man in return
For token gestures that service the lie
Dont cause no tension or Police man footsoldier
Show who’s defence they really provide

And if you choose, its from the few trustable
To nurture the rule, from whom they’re corruptable

Every Military & institution
Industry & Corporation
Secret society & justice system
Is a self advancing organism

If you want to understand
The emancipation of man
Learn by your oppressors hand
That power lies with the strongest gang

Black market crackdown is market monopoly
Illegality serves its maker
Turf expansion in Foreign policy
There’s no question that violence cannot answer

Like Selfish genes, build a body
Bodies build Fraternities
And the maneouvers of entangled interests
Is how the world is run no less

Every society in every nation
Monarchy & Religion
Democracy & Revolution
Is a self advancing organism

3) WILLING PREY
He attracts with a serving hand
Then attacks his prey with no mercy
Emotionless, he’s armed & dangerous
And he’s on the loose in your neighbourhood

He’s a law unto his own
Leaves a trail of wreckage & bones

But masquerade as a tower of tinted windows
Abort his name for the shield of a noble logo
Outsource the blame to someone elses ideology
And we’re willing prey, we’re willing prey

He will stop, stop at nothing
When he’s bled you dry then he’s coming for your children

But masquerade as a tower of tinted windows
Abort his name for the shield of a noble logo
Outsource the blame to someone elses ideology
And we’re willing prey, we’re willing prey

One crime & you are dangerous
But a thousand & its only business

He’s stalking you all the time
He wants to get inside your mind

But masquerade as a tower of tinted windows
Abort his name for the shield of a noble logo
Outsource the blame to someone elses ideology
And we’re willing prey, we’re willing prey

4) LUST
Your world confined to your screens
In a techno-media Aviary
For distraction junkies
To play Celebrity
To be a sham is respectable
And Reason unfair
‘Cos there’s no time to think
When if you blink you’ll be left behind

Trust in the
Lust dealers
Choose your demise

You’re everything
You’re nothing
Generation of me

Your fickle worship of youth
And disposability
Keeps substance & truth
From killing the party
But as our plastic Mandala’s pile
Ever useless, ever higher
This self portrait is all we will leave behind

Trust in the
Lust dealers
Choose your demise

You’re everything
You’re nothing
Generation of me

5) ELEMENT
From the ashes it will rise
As it will do everytime
And as surely it will multiply
‘cos those that seek will always find

Not of body, not of mind
Trancending all space & time
It’s everywhere all the time
Like a virus to a lie

Has no agenda or beliefs
With no allegiances to keep
Has no feelings, has no needs
And can bring an empire to its knees

Can’t be killed or disappeared
Can’t be silenced out of fear
You can’t ignore it, cannot bribe
And it finds the guilty everytime

The most powerful weapon
Only costs a question
There’s nothing its enemies can do
To stop the power of The Truth

6) FICTION
Dark age in the endless strobing of fairy lights
Blind faith in the plastic spun idol of the self

Celebrate the mediocre
Survival of the best pretender
Freedom where there once was murder
You just change the words

Make up, fake tan, surgery
All the ways I value me
Steroids, liposuction we are free
Now absolution’s so easy

Faster, louder, younger, more
Cultural shock & awe

We live in the advert of reality
Where the truth has to accept what we believe
Sensory greed & mental poverty
And everyone’s a celebrity

Turn on the TV to look in the mirror
Swallow sugar cube propaganda
Lowest common denominator
With everyone equal

See what you wanna see, hear what you wanna hear
Fear what you wanna fear so…
You can feel what you wanna feel, be what you wanna be
You false little motherfu**er go

You change the packaging then you’ve changed what’s within
But there is nothing inside anything now
Our politics, our values & our sense of self
It’s all surface level marketing now

We live in a fiction, a fiction
We live in a fiction, a fiction

7) KILL THE MESSENGER
Information gives you power
So the messenger takes it away
“Every second of every hour,
Keeping the pawns in their place”

The editors of reality
Remote controlling humanity
The voice of wealth & power
And the product that they sell is access to you

The best propaganda
Always makes you think you’re free
The public’s biggest enemy
Purchased voluntarily

Don’t read the papers, turn off the Radio
The truth will come to those that seek
Without TV, you are unreachable
I think its time to kill the messenger

Igorance is relative
If you’re ignorant of a lie
Free your spirit & free your mind
Ignore them every single time

They’re the pushers of fear & hate
Of the monsters that they create
They give you glitter & they call it light
But the product that they sell is access to you

They can make you guilty
They can make you innocent
They can change history
‘Cos they write the present

Don’t read the papers, turn off the Radio
The truth will come to those that seek
Without TV, you are unreachable
I think its time to kill the messenger

8) MOMENTS SILENCE
In this moments silence
As the war is raging
Are we remembering
Or just forgetting something more

As the ones for whom they died
Follow in their footsteps
If they could have seen us now
Would they have turned their aims around instead

Paper flowers for sentiments, as feeble
Anthems short as our memory
Coffins buried with our broken promise
That the lives they gave us were not in vain
‘Cos never again…

In this moments silence
When we should be raging
How many times must we
See the drama before we see the truth

That the heroes for the flag
As martyrs for religion
Are just sacrificial lambs
For another mans prize

Paper flowers for sentiments, as feeble
Anthems short as our memory
Coffins buried with our broken promise
That the lives they gave us were not in vain
‘Cos never again…

9) THE SERVANT
You have entrusted me, to serve your family
I treat them as my own
I’ve hired helping hands, the best across the land
To protect your home

Sometimes cruel’s kind
But we know what’s really best, best for you

‘Cos we will take care of everything
While you are busy
If you give an inch away
Then we will take, take…

Now you all accuse me, of lies & robbery
But we caught your brother
If you dont like the way, I run this place today
Then you can find another

‘Cos we will take care of everything
While you are busy
If you give an inch away
Then we will take

You brought me here
And you never checked
And sometimes, cruel’s kind
We know whats really best

‘Cos we will take care of everything
While you are busy
If you give an inch away
Then we will take, take, take, take you.

12) COALITION

Welcome to history
Where judgements calling all of us
To see the world we accepted
And if we let the servants hijack the palace
Who can we really blame

Enter humanity
Endlessly exploitable
It’s written in our design
To be decent, to be naive & impressionable
So the broken few always win

Beware a leader, of any kind
We must do it ourselves

We the majority
Are the authority
In natures democracy
If we just set eachother free

Welcome to history
Where we will see the lies of now
But will we not see the patterns
Old enemies with ever changing faces still
Take us around again

We the majority
Are the authority
In natures democracy
If we just set eachother free

Yeah, we’ve got the numbers
Yeah, we’ve got the power
Yeah, we’ve got eachother
It’s only a choice

Not votes will save you, from the system
We must do it ourselves
