Track Name: Major Taylor
It's mass hysteria what's become of our hero?
Fallen victim to a new kind of gravity
Backwards forwards and many degrees
The major's not around so the youth are
They polluted our airways
They diluted the rhythms and sounds
So the Major has gone underground

Look up in the sky it's a bullet it's a plane
It's our hero but he hangs his head in shame
Stand clear when the sound systems play
The Major confessed that he's not at his best
these days

There is no inspiration here, just a facade

Look up in the sky it's a bullet it's a plane
It's our hero but he hangs his head in shame
Stand clear when the sound systems play
The Major confessed that he's not at his best
these days

So who's gonna save you now?

Ring the alarm the Major's soul is dying
Track Name: Personal Emergencies
Every sunrise is a blessing for John Doe
Because there's so many ways to go
Hearing the car crash and the rumble of guns

Whose got your back when the city attacks
When you stare at the cracks
You're sick cause you got that
Get up and go I'm on the go

I've got your back when you've got no choice
I try to my keep face down I'm eluding the sunshine

I can't let my guard down
Everybody wants a piece of mine
Everybody needs a piece of the action
Everybody wants a bit of the skyline
