Some people have asked me what I'm thinking, or what I'm feeling at the moment. I tell them nothing because it isn't any of their business. But I can honestly say that I feel anger. Anger towards the people who I've met through trade, education, or street life that have held me back. Those who've buried me in the dirt when it was supposed to be my time to shine. Those "politicians" who fear what my ability to succeed where they cannot. But this is my time now. I'm taking matters into my own hands. I will repay the debt that I wrongfully owe, with revenge. It's my time to shine. I've been cast in the shadow too long.

Tell me what you think is acceptable

emendable

tell me what's respectable

And I'll show you what I feel is susceptible

'cause now you know

I'm not going to be impressionable

Tell me everything about the boss

his own sign of the cross

everything I've gained and lost

And I'll show you the true natures of attitude

a change in the mood

the perpetuance of being rude.

Damn politics have kept me down the same

forever, and telling me I've got noone to blame

but myself, trying to write me off in shame

Now I'm back to add a new chapter

degenerancy is the name.

For too long, I've been held back

set up for the attack

I've been kicked on and stomped on

and that's the way it had to start off

to keep you busy,

To keep you in charge of what should've been my city

but what a pity.

This is no game

don't come shaking my hand for a deal

this is real

this is everything I feel

The foundation's been layed

i am vengeance repayed

I will cut through the steel

with or without a brigade.

Call it what you want

call it whatever eases your mind

degenerancy isn't blind

Because of you

it was waiting and waiting

It was only a matter of time.
