I was wondering if anyone could share some artists who they know are awake by the lyrics in thier songs etc. I know of a few and i am trying to subject my self to better musical artists.  I will start and if you have any input it is greatly appreciated.

this is good stuff :)

My own musical taste is a little bit different then most. Here are some of the bands/artists wich I believe to be awake. First up is the Hardcore/Metal genre. The youth is more awake than 'they' know!


Seventh Star - Resistance to Resistance

You try to hold me down
You try to hold me back
You try to tempt me down the wide path
You try to hold me down
You try to hold me back
You try to stir doubt in my heart
But I'm breaking out
And I'm breaking free
From the chains that once imprisoned me
But I'm breaking out
And I'm breaking free
No power of death over me
For years - I feared, death and my destiny
Black cloud - of guilt, looming over me
Locked down - hell bound, from my birth
You fed - my head, with thoughts of no escape
I'm breaking out
The devil - he tempts me
The world - beckons me
The flesh - condemns me
They want to take me out
You try to hold us down
You try to hold us back
You try to tempt us down the wide path
You try to hold us down
You try to hold us back
You try to stir doubt in our heart
But we're breaking out
And we're breaking free
From the chains that once imprisoned us
But we're breaking out
And we're breaking free
No power of death over us


All Out War - Truth In The Age Of Lies

Searching, for the truth, dismissing, dismissing these lies of my youth. It's time, to get 'em back, this ways ain't working and that's a fact. This world, has lost its way, lost its mind- in disarray. I'm trapped in disbelief, of a modern world, in misery. Searching for the truth, in the age of lies. Searching for the truth, in the age of lies. Progression, regression, it's all the same, if our progress is done in vain. We're living and dying in an age of doubt, and there's not much time to figure it out. And we can't give in. Bow down- humanity. Gotta find a way, or face insanity. Searching for the t ruth, in the age of lies. Searching for the truth, in the age of lies. Searching, for the truth, dismissing, dismissing these lies of my youth. It's time, we get 'em back, this ways ain't working and that's a fact


Strife - Blistered

Blistered by a raging sun's flames
Mankind sealed its fate in its haste
Warning signs sent time after time
We just sit back in all this waste
All this waste
And I will not wait
I'll climb from this place
I'll climb to the truth
To the truth
Blackened skies poisoned ashes cried
Mankind sealed its fate in it's haste
Warning signs sent time after time
We just sit back ignore the waste
All the waste
An I cannot wait
I'll climb from this place
I'll climb to the truth
To the truth
To the truth
Looking to the skies I can see the ashes falling
Looking to the shy I can see it all coming down
I can never give up
I can never give up my fights right
I can never give out
I can never give out because mine is right
My fight is truth
My fight is tru


Sick Of It All - "Injustice System"

Freedom - A right I thought we had
One that no one could take away
But there are those who will try
To rule the lives that you and I choose to lead

We must fight - Injustice system
Have no rights - Injustice system
We must fight - Injustice system
Have no rights - Injustice system

There are those who change the laws
For gain and furthering their needs
A small group possesse the power
A minority dictating what's good for the majority
Money has the real influence
Without it what we say don't make a difference
I won't tell you to give in
But to me there's got to be a better way to fight for our rights
And to have our say
To choose for ourselves
And not be led around blindly on a short leash

We must fight - Injustice system
Have no rights - Injustice system
We must fight - Injustice system
Have no rights - Injustice system

Freedom - A right I'll always have
One that no one can take away
No matter what it is they try
Because the flame of freedom burns deep down inside of


Backfire - still dedicated

Still dedicated
We still believe in this thing we do
All through so much has changed
We've been through a lot over the years
Dedication is what it takes
So many friends who stood by our side
That means a lot to me
Even the guys who are no longer here
You are our family, you are our family
Still dedicated to my music and family
Still dedicated this is the
life i choose to lead
Still dedicated to my music and the Angelcrew
Still dedicated 'cause it means so much to me
We've been through good times,
through ups and through downs
but never been out if sight
it's you guys who made us believe in ourselves
to carry on the fight
dedicated...
dedicated...
dedicated...
backfire!
Still dedicated...

Sepultura - Refuse/Resist



Chaos A.D.
Tanks on the streets
Confronting police
Bleeding the plebs
Raging crowd
Burning cars
Bloodshed stars
Who'll be alive?!

Chaos A.D.
Army in siege
Total alarm
I'm sick of this
Inside the state
War is created
No man's land
What's this s***?!

Refuse/resist
Refuse

Chaos A.D.
Disorder unleashed
Starting to burn
Starting to lynch
Silence means death
Stand on your feet
Inner fear
Your worst enemy

ILL BILL ft. IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE & MAX CAVALERA - War Is My Destiny

[Verse 1: Ill Bill]

They killed my entire family
Murdered and tortured, raped and pillaged
I was only five and I was the only surviving witness
My entire village burnt to the ground
He wore a serpent in his crown
Unhappily committed murder with a frown
In an army of black-hooded fiery-skulled generals
And a sorcerer that could cast spells that’ll change your genitals
Held me in slavery till I turned eighteen
Killed my slave master, five years later became king
And I slain dragons and ate stakes during famine
Had the seeds of war planted in a dirty tavern
Had the seeds of presidents killed in a burst of anger
And had their parents bleed to death on the floor of a dirty bathroom
I watched their palaces burn, I seen the ashes of my comrades
Returned to their family in an urn
While a proud child remembers his father that died
The cycle continues with vengeance alive in his mind

[Chorus: Max Cavalera]

Refuse, resist, war is my destiny!
Desire unleashed, war is my destiny!
Chaos, A.D., war is my destiny!
Under a pale grey sky, war is my destiny!

[Verse 2: Immortal Technique]

Yeah, yeah, I was an angel before the thud of the stars fell
Cast with the sternum from Satan into the pit of hell
Our beloved leader forced to be a bottom-feeder
The great deceiver that promised victory over the monkey lovers
We took a vulturous structure and traitor, fell upon em
We ripped his skin off and crowned a new son in the morning
A new president to lead our corporation
The vengeance on God and Heaven’s domination
But I seduced the daughters of man and made the Nephilim
I demanded human sacrifice from the rest of them
I became the spirit that tortured and protected them
And I built them the tower of language that collected them
And then the Lord cried, water falling out from his eyes
And my children died drowning in the tears from the sky
And it was then that Satan crawled back to me with a plan
A design for the ultimate corruption of man
See back then we used to set the chosen ones on fire
You really think God only sent a single messiah?
And so we allowed the birth of many prophets on earth
And since the followers were human they were born with a curse
They began to claim superiority to their brothers
And for eighty-five thousand years conquered each other
And when they prayed before battle they were praying to me
Killing in God’s name cause war is my destiny!


Immortal Technique- Bin Laden

[Mos Def - talking]
Man, you hear this b******* they be talkin'
Every day, man
It's like these m************ is just like professional liars
YouknowwhatI'msayin? It's wild
Listen

[Hook - Mos Def]
Bin Laden didn't blow up the projects
It was you, nigga
Tell the truth, nigga
(Bush knocked down the towers)--[Jadakiss]
Tell the truth, nigga
(Bush knocked down the towers)--[Jadakiss]
Tell the truth, nigga

Bin Laden didn't blow up the projects
It was you, nigga
Tell the truth, nigga
(Bush knocked down the towers)--[Jadakiss]
Tell the truth, nigga
(Bush knocked down the towers)--[Jadakiss]

[Verse 1 - Immortal Technique]
I pledge no allegiance, nigga f*** the president's speeches
I'm baptized by America and covered in leeches
The dirty water that bleaches your soul and your facial features
Drownin' you in propaganda that they spit through the speakers
And if you speak about the evil that the government does
The Patriot Act'll track you to the type of your blood
They try to frame you, and say you was tryna sell drugs
And throw a federal indictment on niggaz to show you love
This s*** is run by fake Christians, fake politicians
Look at they mansions, then look at the conditions you live in
All they talk about is terrorism on television
They tell you to listen, but they don't really tell you they mission
They funded Al-Qaeda, and now they blame the Muslim religion
Even though Bin Laden, was a CIA tactician
They gave him billions of dollars, and they funded his purpose
Fahrenheit 9/11, that's just scratchin' the surface

[Hook - Mos Def]
Bin Laden didn't blow up the projects
It was you, nigga
Tell the truth, nigga
(Bush knocked down the towers)--[Jadakiss]

Bin Laden didn't blow up the projects
It was you, nigga
Tell the truth, nigga
(Bush knocked down the towers)--[Jadakiss]
Tell the truth, nigga
(Bush knocked down the towers)--[Jadakiss]

[Verse 2 - Immortal Technique]
They say the rebels in Iraq still fight for Saddam
But that's b*******, I'll show you why it's totally wrong
Cuz if another country invaded the hood tonight
It'd be warfare through Harlem, and Washington Heights
I wouldn't be fightin' for Bush or White America's dream
I'd be fightin' for my people's survival and self-esteem
I wouldn't fight for racist churches from the south, my nigga
I'd be fightin' to keep the occupation out, my nigga
You ever clock someone who talk s***, or look at you wrong?
Imagine if they shot at you, and was rapin' your moms
And of course Saddam Hussein had chemical weapons
We sold him that s***, after Ronald Reagan's election
Mercenary contractors fightin' a new era
Corporate military bankin' off the war on terror
They controllin' the ghetto, with the failed attack
Tryna distract the fact that they engineerin' the crack
So I'm strapped like Lee Malvo holdin' a sniper rifle
These bullets'll touch your kids, and I don't mean like Michael
Your body be sent to the morgue, stripped down and recycled
I fire on house niggaz that support you and like you
Cuz innocent people get murdered in the struggle daily
And poor people never get s*** and struggle daily
This ain't no alien conspiracy theory, this s*** is real
Written on the dollar underneath the Masonic seal

(I don't rap for dead presidents
I'd rather see the president dead
It's never been said but I set precedents)--[Eminem]

[Hook - Mos Def]
Bin Laden didn't blow up the projects
It was you, nigga
Tell the truth, nigga
(Bush knocked down the towers)--[Jadakiss]
Tell the truth, nigga
(Bush knocked down the towers)--[Jadakiss]
Tell the truth, nigga

Bin Laden didn't blow up the projects
It was you, nigga
Tell the truth, nigga

Some cowards f***** with the wrong building, they meant to hit ours)-- [Eminem]




Jedi Mind Tricks - The Worst

[Verse One: Vinnie Paz]
Don't be scared- Be prepared for the worst
Before I let a round of shots burst
You the opening act so rock first
Trust me, multiple shots from Glocks hurt
And I think there's been enough said
'Cause your body's gonna leak like a m********** dust-head
Burner love to see the blood red
And you p****-clout rappers can't sleep until a thug's dead
But I don't plan to die
Until it's my time
Soldiers keep playa hatin from the sideline
It's divine rhyme
Jedi Mind time
It's rap cyanide
Study the guidelines
Yeah on my last few twelve inches
Walk around with a long knife-twelve inches
That's real sharp for cutting ya skin
Tie you up make you watch while I'm f*****' ya kin

("Don't get scared, be prepared for the worst" *scratched 4X*)

[Verse Two]
Yeah
I have an iron force
Robbin' you on the iron horse
I'm a lion that's relyin' on the Mayan's thoughts
I'm spittin' iron darts
Until there's more dead
Then I'm seeing triple sixes on your forehead
I don't wanna die anymore
I don't wanna cry anymore
Lie anymore
I just want y'all to be dead
I just wanna get rid of all these sick thoughts in my head
I stay ready on the frontline ("Anybody wants mine, that's when it's lunchtime")
And I'm a threat to the whole land
Man fear God
But God fear no man
That's the m********** program
I could feel snakes just from handshakes from a cold hand
Time waits for no man
And that's word bond
Throw 'em in a ditch
Bury 'em the herb gone

("Don't get scared, be prepared for the worst" *scratched 4X*)

[Verse Three: Vinnie Paz]
This is war rap similar to Jacob's ladder
Walk around like Thor with a sacred hammer
Yeah you don't really want the guns out
We some vampire mo'fuckas
Burn when the sun's out
Y'all are traveling the bum route
Talkin bout whips standin on the strip with your thumbs out
But that ain't me
I don't care about a whip
Y'all are fake money just another counterfeit
While y'all are on the block thinkin bout your pipe dreams
I'm Slick Rick style thinkin how my ice gleams
Thinkin how I'm gonna make this money
Take a visit to the Bing and embrace my dunny
I guess this is just God's plan
Beware of the beast undercover in the marked van
If you a smart man
Use your voice to sing
Cause that's the only f****** way to avoid the Bing!

("Don't get scared, be prepared for the worst" *scratched 4X*)

Def P. - Annunaki



Sinds duizenden jaren de mens hier op aarde probeert te verklaren:
Waar waren de eerste levensvormen, normen, waarden?
Ze willen de oorsprong met voorsprong, de hele intentie en de bron
waar intelligentie eerst begon Waarom is de derde dimensie zo dom?
Hoe evolueerde de eerste mens, die kennis is binnen de wens
Vermeden verleden bestreden het heden, zo inmens intens
Oftewel, je staat versteld van dit vertelsel van een ander stelsel
Let wel, ik stel wel: Ik kom van een ander sterrenstelsel
Dus vandaar vraag ik vandaag eens graag attentie voor mijn dimensie
Ontelbare lichtjaren van de aarde en verder ontwikkeld dan al die mensies
Mijn planeet is wreed Ik zeg het je leg het je uit in mijne eed
Onze beschaving is verder ontwikkeld maar denk maar niet dat dat er wat toe deed
Want we maakten perfecte steden met gangen beneden waar treinen door reden
Alle bewoners die waren tevreden totdat er een crisis moest worden bestreden
"Nieuwsflits: Onze planeet slibt dicht, de maatschappij die wordt ontwricht
en er ontstaat nu een nieuwe subcultuur die de crisis kritisch belicht!"
De jongeren kwamen in opstand door middel van rijmende klaagpartijen
en spoten hun kritische leuzen op treinen die overal rond moesten rijden
Ik werd al snel een bekende gast door het zingen voor lastige opstandelingen
en verraste m'n volgelingen door nieuwe ideeën en handige dingen
Want de planeet werd veels te klein en het volk dat schreeuwde om uitbreiding
Dus de regering die kwam met een plan voor een grootscheepse volksbevrijding:
Een enorme vloot van ruimteschepen gestuurd op een expeditie
De revolutionairen als eersten besloot een regeringscoalitie
Vloten van mijn planeetgenoten werden de ruimte in geschoten
Moten van lichtjaren verschoten en veel barriêres die werden doorstoten
Onze missie was simpel, we zochten een voor ons leefbare planeet
en jullie aardbol was een van de weinigen die aan de strenge eisen voldeed
We landden ons moederschip op een eiland door jullie geregistreerd als 'Tahiti'
en maakten wat jullie nu 'graancirkels' noemen, maar 't was onze markeringsgraffiti
Met behulp van vliegende schotels moesten we aardoppervlaktes verkennen
en zo met een levensgolf-antenne de levensvatbaarheid gaan scannen
We kregen contact met aardse mensen en wij vervulden hun logische wensen
want ze zagen ons als hun goden vanwege hun technologische grenzen
Ze gaven ons zeer gastvrije momenten in hun verschillende woongebieden
dus wij beloonden ze met monumenten en hier en daar ook een piramide
De aarde leek ons wel comfortabel, dus wij verzonden de volgende zinnen:
"Missie geslaagd- Planeet is gevonden- Wij wachten op vloot met volgelingen-
Deze planeet is reeds bevolkt maar geen obstakel voor onze komst-
De mens lijkt uiterlijk op ons volk, maar onderontwikkeld en veruit het domst"
Nadat toen enige weken verstreken werd door ons thuisfront terug gezonden:
"Verlaat de aarde- Het tweede team heeft al beter geschikte planeten gevonden"
We kregen de coördinaten door en moesten daar wachten op nieuwe instructies
Ik moest toen al onze schepen verzamelen wat op het laatste moment nog mislukt is
Want ik vloog net over Egypte en seinde daar door dat mijn schip in nood was
Ik stortte daar neer en ik flipte want iedereen dacht toen dat ik dood was
Dus mijn vloot was toen maar vertrokken, de missie werd gewoon afgehandeld
Ik ben naar een mensendorp gewandeld en werd door het volk als koning behandeld
Ze noemden mij 'Toetan Chamon' en zo begon toen mijn aardse leven
Ik ben daar enige jaren gebleven en heb ze mijn kennis in ruil gegeven
Maar binnen deze aardse dampkring bleek ik onsterfelijk te zijn
Toch kon ik maar niet wennen als koning want dat bleek ergerlijk te zijn
Dus ik zette mijn eigen dood in scene, het was eigen-lijk morbide
Ik liet een gebalsemd lijk begraven in één van mijn eigen piramides
Ik vluchtte vervolgens naar Europa waar mensen nog leefden als barbaren
en paste mij daar jaren aan met vellen van bont en lange haren
Ik heb de hele evolutie meegemaakt van jullie simpele mensenwezens
Van wat grommen naar het echt praten en van het praten naar leestekens
Ik heb eeuwen mijn best gedaan om zo min mogelijk op te vallen
Onder mijn schuilnaam L. da Vincie leek ik het nog bijna te verknallen
Maar nou in deze eeuw spontaan een hip-hopscene is opgestaan
begint de historie van mijn planeet weer ongedaan van voor af aan
Ik kon het niet laten om weer te gaan rappen en hier mijn kennis te verspreiden
Ookal hebben de rappende mensen dan door mijn niveauverschil wat te lijden
Maar omdat ooit hier ver vandaan soortgelijk eens een revolutie ontstond
noem ik mezelf nou 'Def P en zo is de cirkel toch weer rond...
(hed) pe rap/rock group that formed in 1994 and has a few albums out, they have one called New World Orphans.... in it has songs such as:
Planet X:
[MAN:]
Honey, I'm home!
Would you come here and look at this?
There's something funny up in the sky!
Is it a bird? Is it a plane?
Honey, look it's your doom!

The Sky is falling [x4]

Here comes Planet X!

The Mayan and the Hopi
Foretold it would come
The axis shift revealing
The Second Sun
It's time to face yourself
And all that you've done
And not done
Nibiru's on it's way
There's nowhere to run

The Sky is falling [x4]

Flyby, shift,
The earth and many were lost
The powers of the world
Would just wanna last goodbye
The Family did survive
And took its first breath
Building our new world
We start once again

The Sky is falling [x4]

[WOMAN:]
Planet X is the force, needed to finally break the absolute control, that this hidden, reptilian race, has had over Earth since they won a battle in space, thousands of years ago.

Gaia was dying
But now she can
Show us her face
Darkness has left
Information
Will reign in its place
The gods hidden help
That the children
Could play on the beach
Five thousand, one hundred
Twenty five more years
To teach, and learn

[MAN:]
Honey, I'm home!
Come out here and take a look at this thing.
There's something funny up in the sky.

The Sky is falling [x4]

[WOMAN:]
Planet X is incoming, and we're gonna have a global panic, but I and, others who have been understanding what I've been learning, are gonna jump for joy. I am going to be so happy, to see that planet. Does that sound crazy?
