welcome to the real world
the matrix is everywhere
it is all around us
even now you can see it when you look out you window
or when you turn on your television

you can feel it when you go to work,
when you go to church,
when you pay your taxes
it is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth

you take the blue pill
the story ends the
you wake up in your bed and belive whatever you want

you take the red pill
you stay in wonderland
and i show you how deep the rabbit hole goes


Fuckin up this track
With the layered technique
How long before you admit defeat?
Even though you've changed, you say the feelings the same
so whats it all about? and who yah gonna blame?
You're just reinventin theory when it's all said and done
Spittin out words like a machine gun, tommy gun
You're sendin mixed messages, no time to rewind
Be thankful of the gift to let your life unwind

I trip in my mind like I'm stuck in a dream,
then I loose my perception or so it seems
like a starlit night of poetry in motion
with the salt in the air rollin in from the ocean

When you're gettin tired of slippin so yah slack
And don't yah get tired of lookin over your back?
With a facade of confidence, strong and bold
But when the pressures on, do yah stand? Do yah fold?
If everythings the same, nuthins gonna change
And the real worlds outta range with no one to blame
Except you, your life and the way that you lead it
And a mind outta wack with the greed that yah feed it

Whats it gonna take?
(Its like you're twice removed from the real world)
Whats it gonna take to make you happy?
(Its like you're twice removed from the real world)
Whats it gonna take?
(Its like you're twice removed from the real world)
Whats it gonna take to make you happy?
(Whats it gonna take?)

Fuckin up this track

How long before you admit defeat?
Even though you've changed, you say the feelings the same

You're just reinventin theory when it's all said and done
Spittin out words like a machine gun, tommy gun
You're sendin mixed messages, no time to rewind
Be thankful of the gift to let your life unwind

Like a wolf in sheeps clothing, with some tricks up my sleeve,
I'm tired of pleasin y'all, ain't it all about me?
You're destroyin your world with empty space,
Did you mean what you said? Was it just to save face?

When you're gettin tired of slippin so yah slack
And don't yah get tired of lookin over your back?
With a facade of confidence, strong and bold
But when the pressures on, do yah stand? Do yah fold?
If everythings the same, nuthins gonna change
And the real worlds outta range with no one to blame
Except you, your life and the way that you lead it

Whats it gonna take to make you happy?
(Its like you're twice removed from the real world)
Whats it gonna take?
(Its like you're twice removed from the real world)
Whats it gonna take to make you happy?
(Whats it gonna take?)

i know your out there
i can feel you now
i know that your afraid
you're afraid of us
afraid of change
i don't know the future
i didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end
i came here to tell you how its going to begin


Whats it gonna take?
(Its like you're twice removed from the real world)
Whats it gonna take to make you happy?
(Its like you're twice removed from the real world)
Whats it gonna take?
(Its like you're twice removed from the real world)
Whats it gonna take to make you happy?
(Whats it gonna take?)

i'm going to hang up this phone
and then i'm gonna show these people what you dont want them to see
im going to show them a world with out you
a would with out rules and controls,
without borders of boundaries
a would where anything is possible
