"Shake the Dice" as written by and Elliot Samuel Martin....
Said we gonna send fire to teach you - shake the dice
We might take all that you own
So when you say another word we will see through games and lies
So don’t you dare make a sound
Oooh you tumble down - you’re breaking your bones
The steeper the road you go
Yet we all keep fighting just to play
Said I can’t pretend the disease don’t show - now you’re addicted and broke
Betting you can float, but in this slippery town
Just take a step and you’ll drown
Oooh Same time while you’re belly’s full we can’t get food enough
So shake in your boots we shout - we figure it out
We breaking you down

So are you strong enough - not to call or bluff
Strong enough to be free from games we play?

Shake up the dice and throw
Play your hand or you fold
Shake up the dice and throw
Decide are you gonna fight or make peace with me?
Shake up the dice and throw
Hypnotized we stumble
Shake up the dice and throw
Decide are you gonna fight or make peace with me?

Our politician’s hands are greased
They sold out to the beast
Represents the great seal watch as they compromise ideals
Why it’s a law, Fam
Witnessed and saw, man
They put the guns in the hands of the youth that lost all hope
Set up as the scapegoat so people won’t know the true
Nature of the beast
Now watch here is the key
With just a slight of the hand the crowd it goes wild
They tighten down our shackles and all we seein’ is smiles
They shaking the dice it’s just an ego device
Got addicted to games and now they’re playing with life
I’m on a world tour with Elras my man
With a Mic in our hands, revealing terrorist plans

So are you strong enough - not to call or bluff
Strong enough to be free from games we play?

Shake up the dice and throw
Play your hand or you fold
Shake up the dice and throw
Decide are you gonna fight or make peace with me?
Shake up the dice and throw
Hypnotized we stumble
Shake up the dice and throw
Decide are you gonna fight or make peace with me?

Said you play me too far, now we coming to your own home
To make you give what you owe
You can’t help the way you shudder and shake
You’re thinking too slow
You better wait ‘til you’re grown
You can’t play your card deceiving the crowd, so keep on watching your mouth
Or maybe truth will come out
Don’t break your neck just to steal the prize
Play for something real so

Shake up the dice and throw
Play your hand or you fold
Shake up the dice and throw
Decide are you gonna fight or make peace with me?
Shake up the dice and throw
Hypnotized we stumble
Shake up the dice and throw
Decide are you gonna fight or make peace with me?

Decide are you gonna fight or make peace with me?
