Biography

The MC - 

Mikael has always had a profound interest in sound. At an early age the young villain began experimenting with different techniques of creating music that later developed into the noise you hear now. The ever so effortless delivery, combined with a powerful voice projecting an even stronger message is part of what makes Mikavillain a villain on the microphone. Conceptual quality reigns supreme to commercial appeal real emotions are evoked as opposed to promoting their will.

Lyrics

Survive

Written By: Noelle Tannen and Mikavillain

I try to be cold
close my doors on the world
pretend things are okay
the way I live my life
but if I go on this way
shut my mouth not complain
who else's life do I shame
we all know there's enough
to keep the suffering down
so no ones hungry enslaved
or locked away for the days
for trying to stand up and fight
or maybe just to survive
who holds the power and why...

Villain

Simulation
Intimdation
Infaltration of a timid nation
limitating
Our every move
What are we to do when they wont let us loose
Tell the truth the youth need to hear
Cuz its clear to me they dont heed the news
forget the views
The tv holds hella lies
The revolution aint televised
Be advised
Read the lines
Keep in mind
knowledge is the power over dollar signs
Gotta find a better way
They wanna Keep us blind lock us up and throw the key away
But dont ever be afraid to lead the way and seize the day
I shine my light in hope to bright yours up
The heart of peace has been soad shut
Closed up for what so much
Time wasted hatin for more stuff
Big brother
With Much to offer
But Undercover
Loves the suffer
Of others
If life is a trip Whats the cost to love her
St st stutter hear the stomach growl of hunger
Contemplate an escape save your prayrs for the summer
Loves the dominant hue in the swirl of colors
This world is ours who holds the power
not us do not trust thy brother with a crooked eye you an I are not just another
Pawn in the wicked game in today
When will we stop pretening its okay
In a way were still enslaved
Clean cut Well behaved The cycle still remains but will it change?
Will we refrain ? Are we insane? Its Inhumane a civil way to build a change
Away from Feeling pain still in veins From needle sting
Kill the name System crash
Stil the same different act
Everyday im living life like i aint looking in the past
The future is my moment so i know my vision is my path
Society is eyeying me thats why one eye is peepin back

Noelle
Chorus

I try to be cold
shut my light to the world
pretend things are okay
the way I live my life
but if I go on this way
shut my mouth not complain
who else's life do I shame
we all know there's enough
to keep the suffering down
so no ones hungry enslaved
or locked away for the days
for trying to stand up and fight
or maybe just to survive
who holds the power and why...

Villain

Foolish guys spewing lies
Crooked smile with a suit and tie
View inside to see the evil eye looking by as i making my move to the side
Lucrative ties taking my groove through the roof
While im planning a route to the sky
Livin in rhythm as means to get high
Follow the crumbs to my piece of the pie
Art is the meaning part of the why
Expression for mika is needed to vibe
pain is the medium leaving the mind
We all have a reason to be in denial
Livin to decently breath in a peaceful and beautiful elegant time
Pleasure defined hidden kor Kept in a rhyme
Soon to be Sellin like dimes
Better design
Hidden agndas and vicious vendettas missin the message inside
Lifting a finger beginners arise alligning the self with a mission to find
The Guiding of light to harness your shine
Pardon the climb but the peak inclines
A beast intwined within our lives
We seek to reach a deeper sign

Noelle

Still i am finding excuses that keep em on the roll
While the pleasure that haunt us only make me lonely makes us cold
Though it seems easy to blame the master with the key
While he keeps on turning
Cant you see your on your knees
Waiting for the lord to strike
As shrieking masses take their plight
Boo doo dah doo pum pah doahhhh

Chorus X2

I try to be cold
shut my light to the world
pretend things are okay
the way I live my life
but if I go on this way
shut my mouth not complain
who else's life do I shame
we all know there's enough
to keep the suffering down
so no ones hungry enslaved
or locked away for the days
for trying to stand up and fight
or maybe just to survive
who holds the power and why
do you think that
This world belongs to you,
this world does not belong to you,
this world belongs to you,
this world does not belong to you,
this world belongs to you,
this world does not belong to you,
this world belongs to you,
this world does not belong to you,
this world belongs to you,
this world does not belong to you,
this world belongs to you,
this world does not belong to you...

Against these Odds

Written By: Mikavillain

Chorus

Who put out the fire
I lit it up for a reason
Set flame to these cowards
In the name of treason
In the name of being
Im doin it for you
Im doin it for me
Fuck the industry
Fuck is you tellin me

Verse

Symbols symbols with no meaing
Tell me how am i to ignore these daeomons
Its a twisted view
So tell me how are you suppose to help me even
Against these odds
Please help me god
Never been one to Seek him
So how am i to reach him
Preacher preacher nice to meet ya
Tell me how it is you became a teacher
Was it godsent
are you a prophet i dont think its neither
Wether synagog
Or in allah
a fasaud Out a speaker
Fuck you swallow this ether
And im about my people
In the making of an army that will rise to beat you
This time i need you
If we dont improvise our kind is feeble they try to lead you
Dont bite what theyfeed you
Like what they give
Or write to be peaceful
right to be lethal
Find what is equal
Substance missing i hope this will reach you

This Social institution
Source of the confusion
Forced in an illusion
Of a Globalizing movement
Fueling nonsene
All of us are just objects
All of this is a contest
To see who of us can accomplish
Which ones among can profit conqour astonish
Go beyond the limits what were living isnt honest
Emphasize the empathy
Enemies or enemies
In disguise full of lies on the rise and its killing me
The tv wont say shit
The news cast can eat a dick
Cnn can film my asshole as i squat totake a shit
Take a hint i will always pleade the fifth
But a four before the 5 is guarnteed to seal ur lips im feel in sick

Angelina

A Man is asked to do more than he understands, in order to understand more than he does...

Chorus

Who put out the fire
I lit it up for a reason
Set flame to these cowards
In the name of treason
In the name of being
Im doin it for you
Im doin it for me
Fuck the industry
Fuck is you telling me
Who put out the fire
I lit it up for a reason
Set flame to these cowards
In the name of treason
In the name of being
Im doin it for you
Im doin it for me
Im doin it for me
Im doin it for me...
