Track Name: The First
Everyday
You draw your guns
And point away
If I draw mine
Are we big enough
To put them away

Who will be the first
To put down their arms
Are fear for love
We all know the world turns
But will ours fall
Before we learn

We made our beds
Then laid in it
And can't get up

Who will say
What needs be said
First

Who will be the first
To put down their arms
Are fear for love
We all know the world turns
But will ours fall
Before we learn

In our conscience
We can hear the subs knocking
Subconsciously can't fake it
All can see where our bass is
Till then loves left underground
Paranoid when we hear the sound of discontent
Shells spent
While we repent
And you relentless-lye
Miss me, Diss me
No one will retreat
Even if one wins
It's still sort of a defeat
From our head to our feet
Blinded by ology
These things follow me and you
We know what's left to do

Who will be the first
To put down their arms
Are fear for love
We all know the world turns
But will ours fall
Before we learn
Track Name: Supremacy
If you think for a moment
That it's black and white
Then you just ain't right
Man you just ain't right

If you think I could play pawn
In this chess game lie
Then you just ain't right
No, you just ain't right

Give me a mic I feel like singing a song
Cause Head to my feet I know the truth is in me
Reaching for Heights
Leaping for Heights
But when you leap there's something holding on tight
And for so long this wars been going on
We feel it's wrong, it’s wrong
They push supremacy
Making us enemies
But it won't work forever

Bank accounts, Melanin amounts
But who will account for the blood suckers at the top
Remind me of a count
Dracula, fuck what they selling now
I rather sense to me over sesame
The real big macs don’t come to the street
They always on the run
Capitalism got us all spun
Capitalizing sing the beginning
Similar to the first word of a sentence
What is guilty?
But we all in jeopardy
As long as we can't see
The people next to me
Are all in the same boat
Barely afloat
My skin can't account for other sins
Same goes for wins but
Every time the news spins
A politician grins
As we fight over who's light
As if it were synonymous with right
But I believe the future is bright
No contradiction
I believe the future is bright

Give me a mic I feel like singing a song
Cause Head to my feet I know the truth is in me
Reaching for heights
Leaping for Heights
But when you leap there's something holding on tight
And for so long this wars been going on
We feel it's wrong, it’s wrong
They push supremacy
Making us enemies
But it won't work forever

If you think for a second
That it's rich and poor
Then you're probably right
You just might be right

If we could stop for a moment
And see the real fight
Then we'll be alright
We'll be alright

Give me a mic I feel like singing a song
Cause Head to my feet I know the truth is in me
Reaching for Heights
Leaping for Heights
But when you leap there's something holding on tight
And for so long this wars been going on
We feel it's wrong, it’s wrong
They push supremacy
Making us enemies
But it won't work forever
Track Name: Bleach
I'll be riding for freedom
To them always a nigger
But there's worst Er’s
Like a cop with a trigger
Or the rich get richer
They say how do you figure
You can tell me what's right
When you ain’t making figures
Attitude of the trodden
Beat down or shot
And they got weapons for you
Just in case you forgotten
Slaving to a grind
Will have you losing your mind
No strength to fight for freedom
When you're barely breathing


We got something in our heads
That won't let us give in
We're still waiting for something
While they prepare for us
We got to eat there for
We'll go along with this today
It's so hard to turn away
From the truth and their lies
So we bleach our eyes

That's all they need
A nation with closed eyes
No means to fight
No need to cry

When your belly is empty
And you feel you can empty
Clips on all those pricks
That's taking the plenty
Tell me how is it one percent
Got all of the money spent
Fuck it I’m bent
But hell these are just facts
Some are quick to use
When you racist's are proving
All the failure of blacks
I rather take power back
For all the people, their lies
From the steeple they taught us
How to follow regardless
Of proof, thereof lack

We got something in our heads
That won't let us give in
We're still waiting for something
While they prepare for us
We got to eat there for
We'll go along with this today
It's so hard to turn away
From the truth and their lies
So we bleach our eyes

They say without there rules
There will be chaos
Well if this isn't it then what is
Well if this isn’t it then what is

We got something in our heads
That won't let us give in
We're still waiting for something
While they prepare for us
We got to eat there for
We'll go along with this today
It's so hard to turn away
From the truth and their lies
So we bleach our eyes
Track Name: Lost
Sometimes we all let ourselves go
Down the road of the past
And can't let go
I was right there
Fact I’m still here
Telling myself things
Man you don’t know
And it's easy
To get Lost
But I'll find my way back
At all cost

I know that you're strong
I know you'll carry on
Even when you feel
A feeling that you're lost
A feeling that
A feeling that you're lost
So lost

Mindless, Spineless
Haters, defining just how much I'm grinding
Venting on these pains and trails
Only comes out when I’m rhyming
Don't be an eclipse
To a sun that is just barely shining
Like blacks in America
It all comes down to the timing
Self fulfilled prophecies
Obviously, It's the silver lining
I see you selling you just mad because ain’t no one buying
I’m on that road to Zion
While deep inside I'm crying
Although you see me smiling
That's just the pain I'm hiding
Slipping, Gripping on life’s last bar
Till I hit the last bar of this rhyme that I've intertwined
Words of pain
Not monetary gain
Just thought of the insane
Tryna make his own lane
Fighting battles in his brain
So remember my name
When it's all said and done
I'm done playing games and I had my fun
It's time to lift ourselves up and when we give up
Fight our battles head on and never run

I know that you're strong
I know you'll carry on
Even when you feel
A feeling that you're lost
A feeling that
A feeling that you're lost
So lost

Sometimes we all let ourselves go
Down the road of the past
And can't let go
I was right there
Fact I’m still here
Telling myself things
Man you don’t know
And it's easy
To get Lost
But I'll find my way back
At all cost

I know that you're strong
I know you'll carry on
Even when you feel
A feeling that you're lost
A feeling that
A feeling that you're lost
So lost
Track Name: Generational
They say life is what you make it
and the pain you gotta take it
how much longer can we fake it
that glass ceiling yeah we were meant to break it
I guess i see it cracking
from down here on the pavement
but I'm still making payments
on a half worthless education
ain't no persuading jobs
they can't hide the facts
yeah they say we on the right track
moving forward no looking back

We don't want it all
But who wants nothing
It's hard enough
Just getting something
This is my narration
Of our frustration
My generation
Running from stagnation

why we Still fighting the same wars
Still knocking on the same doors
still getting high to get by
tryna muster strength to just try
so baby don't cry I said keep your head up
even when you fed up
till we stop the fed but and still the feds
lock you up for some green
steady while they making cream
tryna put a hold on your dreams it seems

We don't want it all
But who wants nothing
It's hard enough
Just getting something
This is my narration
Of our frustration
My generation
Running from stagnation

We don't want it all
But who wants nothing

This is my narration
Of our frustration
My generation
Running from stagnation
Track Name: War
They used to call it war used to call it war
But now they call it freedom
They wanna put us in the mix put us in the mix
With the politics that lead them
So is it you
That they're fighting for
Your interest
Can't protect no more
And the stress of this post-traumatic mess
Ways on all their souls and not yours

It's war
It's war
How many more
Will we fight
It ain't right

You’re no catholic
You’re no Christian
War is their true religion
So tell me who’s to say
We are better than they
You crooked politician
So is it you
That want's me to bleed
You’re interest
Money feeds your greed
And the stress of this economic mess
Might have me in your cavalry
Protecting fallacies

It's war
It's war
How many more
Will we fight
It ain't right

So now they’re putting on their dog tags
But you look at them as just that
Fine
Cause you ruined their k-12
Now you wanna make them your K9
And when you ain't fortunate
Then they really want your Creedence
And don’t wanna listen to
Any of your grievance
And you know that they won't send their son or daughter
To fight with people who ain’t got clearwater
Just tryna take it by survival
Now they’re lying on the ground
Looking for revival
Get it CCR
I hope that don't go over your head
Like the bombs they send
Like Baghdad
Then you come back they treat you like an outcast

It's war
It's war
How many more
Will we fight
It ain't right

It's war
It's war
How many more
Will we fight
It ain't right
Track Name: Gallows
First, it started on this wood ship
Traveling I survived with a slight grip
Lost so many fellows on the long path
Felt so much pain to my smooth back
As I arrive on this strange land
Fully at the mercy of this pale hand
Haven't had a good meal in a couple years
Hydrated by the taste of my own tears
Getting accustomed to these strange ways
Tryna find strength in these pained days
Held helpless by this cruel gun
Looking forward to my new son
As my child enters this sick place
Before I leave I take one look at his face
Hope one day he'll be a strong man
But Maybe not much more
But nothing less than

On the gallows I hear a voice from among the fray
Am I losing the fight or is the fight losing me yeah
On the gallows I hear a voice from among the fray
Am I losing the fight or is the fight losing me yeah

Don’t know much behind what I see
But grandmas of the old Coromantee
There's only one book I'm allowed to read
Writing of my dreams of being freed
Had a vision as I ran away
Only to return was the only way
Take some with me before I go
And spread this truth that I love and know
One night a new message came to me
With their own sins I shall slay my enemies
My people will strike at first sign
August 21st victory will be mine
Hopefully it'll go
To all those low
And free all them
From the ties that bind
Straight from God to my lips
Given to me by the solar eclipse

On the gallows I hear a voice from among the fray
Am I losing the fight or is the fight losing me yeah
On the gallows I hear a voice from among the fray
Am I losing the fight or is the fight losing me yeah


As we traveled from house to house
Me and my seventy
The more we began to rouse
Through my violent purgatory
As I end quartered and flayed
Who will pay with my descent
No ones coming to my aid
This is where I end my legacy

On the gallows I hear a voice from among the fray
Am I losing the fight or is the fight losing me yeah
On the gallows I hear a voice from among the fray
Am I losing the fight or is the fight losing me yeah
Track Name: Sense
So much trite in our sight
So much more to the globe
if we don't see it we'll never know
Looking for the right tune
where I can feel the flow
if we don't hear it we'll never know
If we don't hear it we'll never know

I'll fly sometime
can't sleep lately and i think i know why
I’ve been giving in settling my mind but
then it reminds everything ain’t fine
I'm tryna see the world
would i even know if i meet the girl
that'll leave me breathless
fuck the consensus
i rather trust my senses

I wish I could grow wings
And fly away to the many things
I wanna see before I die
Feel before I die
Hear before I die

Searching for the right love
where heart and mind can grow
if we don't feel it we'll never know
Some sweet Some bitter
but even though
if we don't taste it we'll never know
if we don't taste it we'll never know


these days i wait
for the chance to break
from these chains
my life
I'll strive despite
all strife loaded gun and knife
and these are the things that keep me up at night
and days go by I haven’t joined the fight
and just for spite I suit up this time
and overthrow the ego inside my mind

I wish I could grow wings
And fly away to the many things
I wanna see before I die
Feel before I die
Hear before I die

I wish I could grow wings
And fly away to the many things
I wanna see before I die
Feel before I die
Hear before I die
Track Name: It's Great
Was just a shot in the dark
A momentary spark I see
You opened up your heart
To risk it on a guy like me

Beautiful sadness
I admit I was scared of the madness
Infatuation, admiration
No more A.I.
Or talking bout practice
Though I thought it never mattered
I staggered and shattered
The dreams I had of finding another
Hearts amazed and dazed, lost, confused
And last time it broke in a blunder

There's nothing I can do to replace this
Space you got in my mind
Crazy cause I think of you daily
Just one chance and I'll be fine
And it's great
You elate
Not ashamed to feel something again
And It's Great
You elate
Not ashamed to feel something

I'm just animal on this arc
Looking for the match for me
Then I opened up my heart
Such a risk for a guy like me

No sleep
Must be really good at counting sheep
How many have you lined up and slaughtered
Is that the future or fate for me
Thought it never changed
Not the same since exchanged and slightly deranged
Puppet on a string Our fling
I cling from the sting you bring

There's nothing I can do to replace this
Space you got in my mind
It's crazy cuz I think of you daily
Just one chance and I'll be fine
And it's great
You elate
Not ashamed to feel something again
And It's Great
You elate
Not ashamed to feel something

There's nothing I can do to replace this
Space you got in my mind
It's crazy cuz I think of you daily
Just one chance and I'll be fine
And it's great
You elate
Not ashamed to feel something again
And It's Great
You elate
Not ashamed to feel something
Track Name: Lies
[Your beauty]
it hits me like a train
[and I'm sappy again]

[I wish I could hear]
you always say my name
[one day when I'm in pain]

[Love yourself]
cause you deserve the best
[of anything and everything]

I need someone to put me to the test
[I would try to give it all to you]

OOOOHHHHHHHH

ITS A LIE
DONT LET THEM DIVIDE YOU
FROM WHO
YOU TRULY ARE
YOU TRULY ARE
YOU TRULY ARE

[Your empathy]
could end the wars of man
[and make us all regret]

[the way you turn seeds]
into little children
[it baffles me unravels me]

[don’t hate yourself]
you really shouldn’t fret
[they’ll need you anyway]

[don’t be afraid]
Stand up and let them know
[you can go wherever they can go]

I don’t believe in Eve
nor Moses could part a sea
but what I see
is a whole word tryna' contain you
and your beauty
don’t give up fighting
till they all struck down
you’ve got lightning just
don’t run now
It's so frightening what you go through
I really don’t know what I would do

IT'S A LIE
DONT LET THEM DIVIDE YOU
FROM WHO
you truly are
you truly are
you truly are
you truly are
you truly
Track Name: World
No peace in our mind
Here's a piece of my time
Like the middle east it don't cease
Mad as a villain whenever I feel doom
And life’s been a MF for NS
I'm waiting for the ad-lib soon
Here
To watch her shed a tear
Just the thought of the sound
Would incite fear
So I fantasize a fight with the world changing
Even if we had freedom
Could we even embrace it

I'd love to change the world
For a moment
Just save one dance for me
Like we were free

They obstruct the way we breath
Through the darkness and the haze
And all the pain we see
I'd dare to take away
I'd love to change the world
For a moment
Just save one dance for me
Like we were free

I'm no slave to the beat
Too inclined to feel beat
PTSD stemming from emotional defeat
But the way she moves
I see no worry
I'm in no hurry
Like time stand still
Elevating pessimism
That I can't kill on my own
So much doubt when I'm in the zone
And all I hear is Malcolm
Hoping that I found him in me
Can I be a factor
In the world I wanna see

I'd love to change the world
For a moment
Just save one dance for me
Like we were free

They obstruct the way we breath
Through the darkness and the haze
And all the pain we see
I'd dare to take away
I'd love to change the world
For a moment
Just save one dance for me
Like we were free
Track Name: PRND21
I need time to clear my mind
I gotta to drive away
Peace of mind
Is hard to find
And I always give mine away

Drive
Try not to get blinded by the light
Blinded by the lights

When light turns night
I feel alright
I find my space again

When you said you rather dead
I gotta take the pain

Drive
Try not to get blinded by the light
Blinded by the lights

Take me away
Take me, Take me far away
Were the wheels hit road
And I really don’t wanna get where I got go
Once I sit the speed I get
Then I dream I'm riding in kitt
Roll down the window
And let the wind blow
Light from the dash
As I make my dash
Forget about pain
And forget about cash
But it won't go away
No need to be so heavy on the feet
When I look sideways
I imagine she's still sitting there in the passenger seat
Man I'm beat
But I pushed her away
Just like them all
Maybe I'll make just one last call
But I auto-forget it
Though I'm destine to sweat it
Take one more hit from the smoke I’ve lit
Then split

Drive
Try not to get blinded by the light
Blinded by the lights
Drive
Try not to get blinded by the light
Blinded by the lights
Track Name: Traveling
I used to dream while still awake
but it's been a while
I need the distance to it
I’ll travel for miles

I've been
Traveling, Traveling, Traveling
On this road call life
There's no destination
I just ride and I ride

Ohhh, ohhh
ohhh, ohhh
ohhh, ohhh
ohhh, ohhh

It's easier to think than do
It's hard to make change when it starts with you
coming straight from the jay like blue
no these thoughts ain’t new got me scratching my head like
Ivy
the mental poison lifts when the outside hue shifts
I drift towards noise and
I create scenes of beautiful things
and I start with her eyes
cause they tell sweet lies

I used to think I sealed my fate
but that was a lie
I need to get there sometime
before I die

I've been
Traveling, Traveling, Traveling
On this road call life
There's no destination
I just ride and I ride

Ohhh, ohhh
ohhh, ohhh
ohhh, ohhh
ohhh, ohhh

Seems like every time I blink
someone's getting closer to what I think
is meant for me like destiny
am I wrong for wanting superficial things
Yeah I try to be above it
But I’m just a puppet
It's a bloody valentine cause I'm still here loveless
And I start with my eyes
cause I know they can't tell lies
just like how the crow flys

I've been
Traveling, Traveling, Traveling
On this road call life
There's no destination
I just ride and I ride

Ohhh, ohhh
ohhh, ohhh
ohhh, ohhh
ohhh, ohhh
