KEYS TO THE KINGDOM


No control , no surprise

Tossed the keys to the kingdom

Down that hole in my eye

I’m my own casualty

I fuck up everything I see

Fighting in futility


We start the final war

Tell me what’s worth fighting for

When we know there’s nothing more

We take the hand or fist

Just to sell ourselves for this

The path we least resist


No control, no surprise

Tossed the keys to the kingdom

Down that hole in my eye

I’m my own casualty

I fuck up everything I see

Fighting in futility


I give you what you came for

This is not the same though

Got a different method

But I still can bring the pain so

Y’all stuck in that same flow

I got that insane flow

High as y’all can get

you’re never really in my range though

Yes I’m half anglo

Half fried panko

All prime-time rhymer

Let the bass bang low

All you fucking lames go

Aiming at my name, know

Careful what you shoot because

you might hit what you aim for


Careful what you shoot because

you might hit what you aim for



No control , no surprise

Tossed the keys to the kingdom

Down that hole in my eye

I’m my own casualty

I fuck up everything I see

Fighting in futility




No control, no surprise

Tossed the keys to the kingdom

Down that hole in my eye

I’m my own casualty

I’m my own casualty

ALL FOR NOTHING

So what you waiting for?

Anticipating more

Why you debate what it could take to instigate a war

Yeah I've been hating on the time I wasn't hated for

There's nothing they can fucking say they didn't say before


You could never see it, your battle's not mine

Wanna skate and play it safe but this is take a shot time

You're waiting for a purpose I already got mine

While you tell me step to it like one, two, three, four!


And if I do what you demand

(You say!)

You'll let me understand

(You say!)

You're gonna hold me to your word

And if I sell myself away

(You say!)

I'll have no debt to pay

(You say!)

I'm gonna get what I deserve

Your word

Obey

My debt

Repaid

Our trust

Betrayed

(Oh oh oh oh oh)

All for nothing

All for nothing


Kick back, there's no other way to say it

So let me break this fucker down for you

I really don't know you

You're talk but let me show you where to put your paranoia

You're joking I don't have a half a sucker bone to throw you

I'm disgusted wonder what's gonna make you you tuck your tail below you

And no I'm not your soldier

I'm not taking any orders

I'm a five-star general infantry controller

Need a lesson let me show you

Have you checking your composure

While I'm making you step to it like one, two, three, four!


And if I do what you demand

(You say!)

You'll let me understand

(You say!)

You're gonna hold me to your word

And if I sell myself away

(You say!)

I'll have no debt to pay

(You say!)

I'm gonna get what I deserve


And if I do what you demand

You'll let me understand


Your word

Obey

My debt

Repaid

Our trust

Betrayed

(Oh oh oh oh)

All for nothing

All for nothing

All for nothing

(Oh oh oh oh)


---------------------------------------------------------------------------


GUILTY ALL THE SAME

Tell us all again

What you think we should be

What the answers are

What it is we can't see

Tell us all again

How to do what you say

How to fall in line

How there's no other way

But oh / We all know


You're guilty all the same

Too sick to be ashemed

You want to point your finger

But there's no one else to blame

(x2)


You're guilty all the same


Show us all again

That our hands are unclean

That we're unprepared

That you have what we need

Show us all again

'Cause we cannot be saved

'Cause the end is near

Now there's no other way

And oh / You will know


You're guilty all the same

Too sick to be ashemed

You want to point your finger

But there's no one else to blame

(x2)


There's no one else to blame

Guilty all the same

Guilty all the same

You're guilty all the same


yeah

You're alreadyg know what it is


Can y'all explain

What kind of land is this

When a man has plans of being rich

But the bosses plans are wealthy

Dirty money scheme

A clean split is nonsense

It's insane

Even corporate hands is filthy

They talk team and take the paper route

All they think about is bank accounts

Assets and realty

At anybody’s expense

No shame with a clear conscience

No regrets and guilt free

They claim that ain't the way that they built me

The smoke screen before the flame

Knowin’ as soon as the dough or the deal peak

They say it's time for things to change

Rearrange like good product rebuilt cheap

Anything if it's more to gain

Drained, manipulated like artists, it's real deep

Until no more remains

But I'm still me

Like authentic hip-hop and rock

‘Til pop and radio and record companies killed me

Try to force me to stray and obey

And got the gall to say how real can real be

You feel me, we'll see

That green could be to blame

Or greedy for the fame

TV or a name

The media, the game

To me you're all the same

You're guilty


You're guilty all the same

Too sick to be ashemed

You want to point your finger

But there's no one else to blame

(x2)


There's no one else to blame

You're guilty all the same


---------------------------------------------------------------


WAR

One, two,

One, two, three, four!


There's no peace only war

Victory decides who's wrong or right

It will not cease only grow

You better be prepared to fight!

And it will not apologize

For laying down your life


War


There's no pain it will spare

Death has become your only right

And once you're lost in your despair

Forever black, eternal light

And it will not apologize

For laying down your life


War

Destroyer

War

Destroyer


It needs no side to justify

Laying down your life


War

Destroyer

War


---------------------------------------------------------------


WASTELANDS

This is war with no weapons

Marchin' with no steppin

Murder with no killin'

Illin' every direction

First, no sequel

Do the math, no equal

A John with no Yoko

More power, less people

And no I'm not afraid of that

Print it in your paperback

Every rap is made in fact

To act as a delayed attack

Every phrase a razorblade

That's saved until they play it back

Slay em leave em layin on the pavement

Bang

Fade to black


In the wastelands of today

When there's nothing left to lose

And and there's nothing more to take

But you force yourself to choose

In the wastelands of today

When tomorrow disappears

When the future slips away

And your hope turns into fear

In the wastelands of today


Roll credits, you get it

The show's done

They're talking for just talkin'

Meaning they got none

None of 'em come proper

They talk like a shotgun

But how many got bred with integrity

Not one

So no, I'm not afraid to see

These suckerss hold a blade to me

Ain't no way to shake the ground

I built before you came to be

Take it how you take it,

I'm the opposite of vacancy

And this not negotiation,

Y'all can hate

Wait and see...


In the wastelands of today

When there's nothing left to lose

And and there's nothing more to take

But you force yourself to choose

In the wastelands of today

When tomorrow disappears

When the future slips away

And your hope turns into fea

And your hope turns into fear

In the wastelands of today


In the wastelands of today

When there's nothing left to lose

And and there's nothing more to take

But you force yourself to choose

In the wastelands of today

When tomorrow disappears

When the future slips away

And your hope turns into fea

And your hope turns into fear

In the wastelands of today


In the wastelands of today

In the wastelands of today


------------------------------------------------------------------


UNTIL IT'S GONE

A fire needs a space to burn

A breath to build a glow

I’ve heard it said a thousand times

But now I know


That you don’t know what you've got

Oh you don't know what you've got

No you don't know what you've got

Until it's gone

Until it's gone

Until it's gone


I thought I kept you safe and sound

I thought I made you strong

But something made me realize

That I was wrong


'Cause finding what you got sometimes

Means finding it alone


And I can finally see your light

When I let go


'Cause you don't know what you've got

Until it's gone

’Til it's gone…

’Til it's gone…


Until it's gone


Until it's gone


Until it's gone


Until it's gone


Until it's gone


Until it's gone







'Cause you don't know what you've got

Oh you don't know what you've got

No you don't know what you've got

It's your battle to be fought

No you don't know what you've got

Until it's gone

'Til it's gone

'Til it's gone


------------------------------------------------------------------


REBELLION

I've seen the blood

I've seen the broken

The lost and the sights unseen

I want a flood

I want an ocean

To wash my confusion clean

I can't resolve this empty story

I can't repair the damage done


We are the fortunate ones

Who never faced oppression's gun

We are the fortunate ones

Imitations of rebellion!

Rebellion


We acted out

We wear the colors

Confined by the things we own

We're not without

We're like each other

Pretending we're here alone

And far away they burn their buildings

Right in the face of the damage done


We are the fortunate ones

Who never faced oppression's gun

We are the fortunate ones

Imitations of rebellion!


Rebellion

We lost before the start

Rebellion

One by one we fall apart

We fall apart

We fall apart


We are the fortunate ones

Who never faced oppression's gun

We are the fortunate ones

Imitations of

Imitations of


We are the fortunate ones

Who never faced oppression's gun

We are the fortunate ones

Imitations of rebellion!


Rebellion


Rebellion




--------------------------------------------------------------------


MARK THE GRAVES

There's a fragile game you play,

With the ghosts of yesterday,

If you can't let go, we'll never say goodbye,

No trace of what remains,

No stones to mark the graves,

Only memories we thought we could deny


There's so much more to lose,

Than the pain I put you through,

In my carelessness I left you in the dark,

And the blood may wash away,

The scars will never fade,

At least I know somehow I made a mark


In the dark, In the light

Nothing left, nothing right,

(x2)



In the dark, In the light

Nothing left, nothing right,

(x2)



Nothing right

(x2)


---------------------------------------------------------------


FINAL MASQUERADE

Tearing it apart with words you wouldn't say

And suddenly tommorrow's a moment washed away

'Cause I don't have a reason and you don't have the time

But we both keep on waiting for something we won't find


The light on the horizon, was brighter yesterday

With shadows floating over, the scars begin to fade

We said it was forever, but then it slipped away

Standing at the end of the final masquerade

The final masquerade


All I've ever wanted the secrets that you keep

All you've ever wanted the truth I couldn't speak

'Cause I can't see forgiveness and you can see the crime

And we both keep on waiting foo what we left behind



The light on the horizon, was brighter yesterday

With shadows floating over, the scars begin to fade

We said it was forever, but then it slipped away

Standing at the end of the final masquerade

The final masquerade


The final masquerade

The final masquerade

Standing at the end of the final masquerade



The light on the horizon, was brighter yesterday

With shadows floating over, the scars begin to fade

We said it was forever, but then it slipped away

Standing at the end of the final masquerade



Ooh Ooh Ooh

Standing at the end of the final masquerade

Ooh Ooh Ooh

Standing at the end of the final masquerade

The final masquerade

Ooh Ooh Ooh

A LINE IN THE SAND

Today, we stood on the wall,

We laughed at the sun,

We laughed at the guns,

We laughed at it all

And when they

They told us to go,

We paid them no mind,

Like every other time,

But little did we know...


Today, I look for a sign,

With flames in my hands,

A line in the sand,

Between yours and mine,

And it came, like fire from below,

Your greed led the call,

My flag had to fall,

But little did you know


Another day, your truth will come,

You're gonna pay for what you,

Pay for what you've done,

You'll get what's yours,

And face your fraud,

You're gonna give me back what's mine

Give me back what's mine!


I had never been a coward,

I had never seen blood,

You had sold me an ocean,

And I was lost in the flood,

We were counting on a leader,

We were driven by need,

But couldn't take temptation,

And we were blinded by greed,

You were steady as a sniper,

We were waiting on a wire,

So we never saw it coming,

When you ran from the fire,

You can try intimidation,

Or you can try to roar,

But when the time comes calling,

Yeah!

You are gonna get yours!


Another day, your truth will come,

You're gonna pay for what you,

Pay for what you've done,

You'll get what's yours,

And face your fraud,

You're gonna give me back what's mine

Give me back what's mine!


And so today, your truth has come,

You're gonna pay for what you,

Pay for what you've done,

You'll get what's yours,

You're out of time,

And you will give me back what's mine

Give me back what's mine!


Give me back

Give me back what's mine!

Give me back

Give me back what's mine!

What's mine!


Give me back

Give me back what's mine!


What's mine!


What's mine!

Give me back what's mine!



Today, we stood on the wall,

We laughed at the sun,

We laughed at the guns,

We laughed at it all

And when they

They told us to go

We paid them no mind

Like every other time

But little did we know

KEYS TO THE KINGDOM

 

No control / no surprise
Tossed the keys to the kingdom
Down that hole in my eye
I’m my own / casualty
I fuck up everything I see
Fighting in futility
We start the final war
Tell me what’s worth fighting for
When we know there’s nothing more
We take the hand or fist
Just to sell ourselves for this
The path we least resist
No control / no surprise
Tossed the keys to the kingdom
Down that hole in my eye
I’m my own / casualty
I fuck up everything I see
Fighting in futility
I give you what you came for / this is not the same though
Got a different method but I still can bring the pain so
Y’all stuck in that same flow / I got that insane flow
High as y’all can get you’re never really in my range though
Yes I’m half anglo / half fried panko

All you fucking lames go / aiming at my name, know
Careful what you shoot because you might hit what you aim for
No control / no surprise
Tossed the keys to the kingdom
Down that hole in my eye
I’m my own / casualty
I’m my own

Are all these lyrics the same ones that LP posted on their official site? It'd be nonsensical to have fan transcribed lyrics now since LP posted them officially.

I'm gonna check and post the official lyrics

 

EDIT: Update main post with the official lyircs

There's one discrepancy between the official lyrics and what's actually on the album - in Keys to the Kingdom, Mike says "Y'all locked in that same flow" instead of "Y'all stuck in that same flow."

End of Keys to the Kingdom:
Kid: I'M NOT ALLOWED TO SAY CERTAIN THINGS. AUGHHHHH!
(short studio clip of Rob playing drums)
Mike: Try and do...try and do the other thing, real quick.

End of All For Nothing:
(clip of instrumental music in the background)
Mike: Maybe we're too far?
Brad: I don't think we're too far.
Mike: Okay.
Brad: That's a good verse...put the heavy shit there.
Mike: The heavy shit right here?

End of The Summoning:
(sounds from a kid's baseball game)
Guy #1: Watch the ball...
(sound of the ball being hit)
Guy #1: NICE!
Guy #2: RUN! RUN! RUN! RUN!
Guy #1: Alright, yeah!

No idea what's at the end of War, but whatever it is, it's a short clip that loops over and over. Sounds almost like a small clip of an old-timey radio jingle or something.
