Just In Case

By L. Scatterbrain and Regeye

I want peace, I’m preparing for war
I got a piece for the beast plus the ammo and more
fortitude, fortuitous that settling scores
is my specialty especially when metal’s involved
The unjust is one bust from returning to dust
Ashes to ashes, time passes and my gun rusts
Can’t live by the heater like some fucking gun nut
Life has no editing live and uncut
I’d like to put down the weaponry but it’s getting’ me
And mine like a landmine or like leprosy
Things fall apart, breakin’ bonds or uprootin’ it
What’s the use of a gun if you ain’t shootin’ it
What’s the value of sanity if you’re losin’ it
And what is the meaning of life if you ain’t choosing it
If power makes us cower when they’re abusing it
The power of the projectile is what we’re using

Just in case. Suckers feel a need to come out their face
Just in case Baby hitlers’ need to be put in their place
Just in case. No harmony exists in the race
Of humanity. Insanity is an uncomfortable place
Just in case. They want a military base to replace
Just in case. All the people are displaced and encased
Just in case. In a box of poverty and erased
From memory remember what oppression creates

(Reg) You can’t begin to fathom like phantom punch KO
Ransom note to Saddam, forged the A Salaam
Two mega ton aces up the sleeve armed
Similar those eses’ with shanks palmed
Radio co-ordinates equip the napalm
On merchant ships and seize their oil drums
Shady individuals frontin’ the light sun
Saying they’re for the people and taking the lump sum
Camouflaged with my degree, conceal my firearm
Rat race to reach position to fire from
Because my alter ego bring heat light like firestorm
But everyday, mild mannered remain calm
And you all know that's what happens before the storm
To rain on your parade of double speak double tongue
I (w)rap like a boa constrictor 10 miles long
And cut heads of state like Lapu Lapu's balisong.

Just in case. Suckers feel a need to come out their face
Just in case Baby hitlers’ need to be put in their place
Just in case. No harmony exists in the race
Of humanity. Insanity is an uncomfortable place
Just in case. They want a military base to replace
Just in case. All the people are displaced and encased
Just in case. In a box of poverty and erased
From memory remember what oppression creates

My uzi weighs a megaton
WMD the empty run has just begun
You can’t plant nuclear plants like you would dump a gun
Or a crack vial, there’s packed files of them pumpin’ some
misinformation from bush’s administration
On a monthly schedule, blood flows like menstruation
And mimic making a difference for peoples’ sake and
Got a hand up the rear of the puppets that run the nations

(Reg) Hence…we lock it down like constipation
constant elevation all across the boards
One accord, one sword, we captivate the masses
We provide the glasses to government molasses
Inebriated with lies, Democratic asses
And to provide a disguise, lowering the taxes
Oh what a surprise, winning over upper classes
So I’m here to provide truth, I’m here to provide…

Just in case. Suckers feel a need to come out their face
Just in case Baby hitlers’ need to be put in their place
Just in case. No harmony exists in the race
Of humanity. Insanity is an uncomfortable place
Just in case. They want a military base to replace
Just in case. All the people are displaced and encased
Just in case. In a box of poverty and erased
From memory remember what oppression creates
