Invincible - Ransom Note (feat. ANOMOLIES) lyrics

Lyrics by Invincible and ANOMOLIES

Invincible:
Storm up to the door thinking that we kicking down using a trojan horse
It won't open with force, our moment's short, so what's the last resort?
Picking the lock – plan B skeleton key sticking
Covered up in gloves and hats so they cant match our description

Helixx:
A.N.S. masked marauders
Hip hop's doctors without borders
Operation: No More Lies
Kidnaps the daughter of a media mogul
Who hijacked the hip hop game
We took her to close the gap
We demand a prisoner exchange

Pri:
Now, run in the back room. Don't nobody say shit
Helixx C grab that chick before she runs quick
Don't worry 'bout her man, he done made me mad
Fold that ni**a like a press shirt and fold him in a body bag

Big Tara:
In the hummer now we're off as I proudly thought my crew
Initiates the long awaited media coup
A car passes blastin' music from the bullshit charts
Ain't no turning back from here, ANOMOLIES is going hard

(There's been a big kidnapping... She screams when the men burst in and started beating her fiance. The young heiress was forced into the trunk of a white car...Police say the whole thing was carried out with commando-like precision...What we received in the mail today appears to be a seven page statement plus a tape recording...and according to the demands we will outline here it says all these things must be publicized in full...which is what we're doing now.)

Pri:
Now, listen up people: This is our communiqué
If you want your daughter, be wise and do just what we say

Invincible:
Tell the truth - you own both right wing AMs full of haters
And the FM's who cater to the lowest common denominator

Tara:
Tell the truth about payola-based quotas and your motives
To hold our attention so you sell it to the highest donor

Helixx:
Truth is, your companies wanting to stifle freedom of speech
Cuz without neutrality, the net will filter what you see

Invincible:
We resorted to these tactics cuz you know you can afford it
We demand our own stations so our voices ain't distorted

Tara:
We demand you break bread for the babies – they need educating
Updated books and computers for the future they're creating

Helixx:
We demand that you give us our wireless citywide
And make it free so we can truly end the digital divide

Pri:
We demand that you stop making hip hop commercialized
Before it meets its own demise by the devil in disguise.

(Dad, I'm ok, I just hope that you'll do what they say, dad, and do it quickly.... I just want you to know that I'm going to do everything I can to get you out of there. It's a little frightening because the initial demand is one that's impossible to meet. However in the next 24-48 hrs I'll be trying my best to come back with some kind of a counter offer that's acceptable.)

Invincible:
A station, they said you could have it right here, fill out this bureaucratic nightmare
They'll tell us if it's up to standard in 5 years.

Tara:
Gave excuses, no books or computers to the youth
Free stickers and hats to every single public school

Helixx:
They said they're giving us the wireless, it's trash
Taxing us with hidden fees, they profit while we crash.

Pri:
Just because you throw a bone, that don't make it grub
Rap stars and Nascar, that's not what we asked for

Invincible:
You want your daughter? come and get her

Tara:
But when he arrived, surprise! All that he found was a letter.

Invincible:
She said, "Pops i've known since i've been grown,
You hijacked the minds of the masses,
Gave 'em Stockholm syndrome
I helped ANOMOLIES plot all along
To take your monopoly spot,
And while you're reading this we're gone."

Helixx:
Creating our own outlets even if it ain't out yet
Seeing typical trends through a critical lens
Making media, music, so you have no influence

Invincible and Helixx:
Mobilizing a movement so your brainwashing is useless

(There's an opportunity for a new society to be built on people who are transforming themselves and who are not just opposing those who oppress them.)
