Good evening, This is Los Angelos

A lonely teenage daydream
Of things I just might be
A surreal kind of thinking
Keeps on drifting in on me
My twisted body is lifeless
Not so their twisted minds
Peace through power their motto
Power through peace their crime

Product of our environment (x8)

Maybe one day they will legalize weed
In the year TWO "G" the planet could be deceased
We plead to the fleece while we're beggin' on our knees
In our hometown Cali with bears and green trees
Birds and the bees, hot sand on the beach
Shells in the sea and I'm living in peace
Like a dog on a leash locked up with no key
I gotta smoke under cover, Motherfuck the police

Yeah, see the matching hand and they're robbing from the hat
The laws an illusion to symbolize that
Putting us in jail for the with us living tax tax
I can see the wires in the levitating act
I can hear the lies and they're calling them facts
I can see the bars and they're lookin all cracked
I read between the lines but the lines are all crap
I can feel the knife turning in my back

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed
See, it's hell
Living in a cell
Legalize the plant only time will tell

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed
See, it's hell
Living in a cell
Legalize the plant only time will tell

You are a sacred being of light
Projected into reality for a purpose
Demand the right to your moment
In this holographic gift with no rules, no borders
Except for those who you choose to accept and live by

Abolish government is nothing to me
Forget about god, he's not here to see
We live by a system, a perfect mold
People perfect people who are poor and old
Lies were spent on a sad defense
They said we're lookin for a method in this world ???
Presidents are named
Presidents are labeled highest man on the government table

America, land of the free
Free to the power of the people in uniform (x2)

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed
See, it's hell
Living in a cell
Legalize the plant only time will tell

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed
See, it's hell
Living in a cell
Legalize the plant only time will tell

Society, fuck it!
I've had enough!
The system's full of crooks, straight up corrupt
You look like a decoy bobbing like a duck
And your money keeps em smokin on a BC Bluff
You're caught up in the headlights of my V-Dub bus
TSOL and the Kings about to even things up
Your birds will take all the air out the sky
Bring em down to our level
You can work, can't hide

Product of our environment (x8)

A lonely teenage daydream
Of things I just might be
A surreal kind of thinking
Keeps on drifting in on me
My twisted body is lifeless
Not so their twisted minds
Peace through power their motto
Power through peace their crime

The government keeps our control over the population
While the schools teach the kids restricted education
Murder, Rape, Sex, and Underage prostitution
They got the war on pot, they got the wrong solution

I wake and I bake, nowhere to escape
Livin' life in a tank they invade my space
Betrayed full of hate while they're shootin all blanks
Society's lost in a paranoid state

It's the illusion of ownership, It's take what you can get
The banks are the loan sharks and everyone's in debt
And if you get ahead how quickly you forget
You're hanging from a burning rope without a safety net
They tax you when you sell
They tax you when you buy
They take half when you live
Then they take half when you die
These are the lies that they are stating as facts
I can see the wires of the levitating act

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed
See, it's hell
Living in a cell
Legalize the plant only time will tell

How would life be if the world smoked weed?
Guaranteed there'd be peace not greed
See, it's hell
Living in a cell
Legalize the plant only time will tell

I'm glad that I can read
I'm glad that I can write
I read their fuckin bullshit
Every single night
When off in my head went a little fuckin light
It told me what was wrong it told me what was right
World bank-Power and control
Issuing the money and they're dollin' out the roles
Charging what they want to with the money, the control
Living in their nightmare, giving them your soul!

    kottonmouth kings arent horror-core rap they are all about weed and other various drugs but mostly weed. granted they have done stuff in the past with horrorcore groups like icp and stuff like that but they themselves are all about making good music to toke to.

    corporate avenger and tsol were a great addition to this song. kmk are fun to listen to, but the avenger and tsol give the song some credibility.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
Album art
Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
