Once upon a grind I was working overtime With an open mind Trying to live In a crib that wasn't mine Splitting up my time With the children on the line Killing all the lies To make a living off of rhymes If you're missing all the signs Listen to my lines Help you find Your mission or decide What you're missing by design This is all just kind Of wishing on a prime Vision for mankind To enlist them all to shine Add in wisdom most divine Multiply that don't divide Against divisions from all sides We can win it all and tie Whether sporting suit and tie Or Mikey Soaring McFly Don't deny the homeless guy It could be an angel in disguise On the internet are spies All hoaxes aside The jail coach is their ride Until the poor folks rise (Chorus) Move fast Work on dreams and let some pass Make yourself something that nobody else has Make yourself make yourself Something that will last Make yourself something that nobody else has Make yourself some good work Let your hands speak volumes Still talking to myself As I'm addressing all you I'm no emcee I'm just a master of me Mocking mockeries at mach 13 With a formless poem Formula free Focused for a forum of peace Performed for them For them to see A focused ki Vocally feel the dopamine Provoking your broken dreams To reform to be spoken in deeds Loans and degrees Or "lb"s of trees Falling burning where nobody sees They take a fourth of the week From the meek's tock tick Talk rich to the weak And pay cheap to zip Plot is thick chip chop it down And build a house quick out of bricks And lock it down (Chorus) Move fast Work on dreams and let some pass Make yourself something that nobody else has Make yourself make yourself Something that will last Make yourself something that nobody else has The road to Hades is paved With gold stones laid By those that craved to get paid Off the bones of slaves I'm not naive If I'm not trying your trash Life's a pitch then you buy it So I'll be rich Even without cash While they buy out and get bailed out To their hideouts with no mail route What they lie about We complain about That's why I ain't about Just laying about What we pay for They steal back When it rains it pours Can't conceal that They drape the poor in their paper stacks Every major store breaks the labored back With a label stamp like a labor camp If we control what we spend Then their control would end Work well together Is all I recommend It'd be the wreck of men To just rely on the president Because on our day of reckoning What takes precedence Make your words relevant Display your intelligence (Chorus) Move fast Work on dreams and let some pass Make yourself something that nobody else has Make yourself make yourself Something that will last Make yourself something that nobody else has

Get Up There's still air to breathe To me you're already the one you swear to be And I'm so ready to live I'd tell you carefully There's no heaven too far To reach if you dare believe Get up its an awesome process To process prospects, conquests and nonsense We're paragons, aware of wrong the harshest catharsis Nobody leaves lossless No matter how cautious In our personal episodes within the clocks metronome Breathing while your hearts beating Never let it go I ain't the hero in this story The melodies the methadone Get up nothings set in stone Get up and leave the bed alone What would Jesus do, Is a better excuse than when in Rome The Lord is my witness and yours So We're never alone Tell me about how You're OK to drive While I take you home Get up over yourself And Get a hold of yourself And get up Get get get get get get get get get get get get get Get up Get get get get get get get get get get get get get Get up Don’t you see the finish line when it's nowhere in sight You can visualize Getting up even after life hits you right Between the eyes Get up one more time Get up Get up rise and shine Get up don't you see the finish line when it's nowhere in sight You can visualize Getting up even after life hits you right Between the eyes Get up one more time Get up Get up rise and shine Get Up There's still air to breathe To me you're already the one you swear to be And I'm so ready to live I'd kill what you're scared to see There's no heaven too high To reach if you dare believe I was told before The truth is a force field Words can deal deadly blows And music can heal Get up in your body and use it Lock out and block doubts And give your ego a bruising Get up because if you don't you're losing Something money can't buy And no one can gift Give yourself a lift Give yourself the assist Get get get get get a grip Get up With confidence In all you're about It's your voice in your head when you're Wearing no doubts when what you feel is what's said Straight from your mouth But It's best displayed in silence Let your confidence shout and get up get up you don't need a reward In fact I don't even think you've ever seen that before get up you don't need a reward In fact I don't even think you've ever seen that before get up you don't need a reward In fact I don't even think you've ever seen that before get up you don't need a reward In fact I don't even think you've ever seen that before get up I was told before The truth is a force field Words can deal deadly blows And music can heal Get up in your body and use it Lock out and block doubts And give your ego a bruising Get up because if you don't you're losing Something money can't buy And no one can gift Give yourself a lift Give yourself the assist Get a grip Get Up There's still air to breathe To me you're already the one you swear to be And I'm so ready to live You are too apparently There's no heaven too tall To reach if you dare believe Get up With confidence In all you're about It's your voice in your head when you're Wearing no doubts when what you feel is what's said Straight from your mouth But It's best displayed in silence Let your confidence shout and get up

Grab your CD's and send them With tapes and eight tracks in heaven Wax values ascending In the melting pot Vinyl blends in The newer systems a juicer We think it's sweet While we're blending A human stew Of contending views In hospitable settings Of a world wide webbing Network event we're attending We're constitution defending The bill of rights when threatened With first amendments protection Which is a double edged weapon Without intending we're vending Resent when we're venting In recession prevention Against depression descending We need aggression intervention Which we're probably not getting Don't pretend we're not bending Backwards we need some resetting To peace not depending On bail out bills still pending Not to sound condescending But it's just follow the lemming When we fear our peers condemning More than God at our ending We exchange our concessions And embrace a resurrection As a healthy direction Towards our own self expression (Chorus) Never stop dreaming Even when you wake up When you start believing The end is made up When isn't the case it's the illusion of your state Our prison is delusion And the bed that we make A New Years resolution's Just a choice and a date Let's start a revolution from the poison of fate Corporate pollutions got you sleeping awake Hip Hop is evolution We're just keeping the Faith Let it out (keeping the faith) {repeat 3 times} Take your labels and shred them When turn tables replace bedlam In a graceful oppression Of limitations referendum Exchange places with brethren Face fabled race contention Like activists with legends Modernists against dissension And faceless injections Of tasteless misdirection When phrases are mentioned Leaving self control in question Know the greatest intentions Birth most heinous insurrection Without piece of mind The proper path remains unseen No peace to find in funhouse Of smoke and screen Love claims your broken dreams from those rank them no redeem And paints a plan for your planet And those that inhabit it Don't just take what your handed You must make your advantage Yes word is birth We are the earth Not for purchase Put the people first Word is born We are the world Let the children grow up Untorn (Chorus) Never stop dreaming Even when you wake up When you start believing The end is made up When isn't the case it's the illusion of your state Our prison is delusion And the bed that we make A New Years resolution's Just a choice and a date Let's start a revolution from the poison of fate Corporate pollution's got you sleeping awake Hip Hop is evolution We're just keeping the Faith Let it out (keeping the faith) {repeat 3 times} Give your body a breather Air your lungs out True believer Whether that be a scream or Meditations calm demeanor We must lobby our leaders Anti atrocity repeaters As war time beleaguers Monopolies deploy deceivers Please employ your receivers To receive much cleaner speakers As benevolent seekers Of the relevant in between your Beating heart and your fingers Intelligent love compassion lingers In the mind of all dreamers A tapestry and God's the weaver (Chorus) Never stop dreaming when you wake up When you start believing The end is made up When isn't the case it's the illusion of your state Our prison is delusion And the bed that we make A New Years resolution's Just a choice and a date Let's start a revolution from the poison of fate Corporate pollution's got you sleeping awake Hip Hop is evolution We're just keeping the Faith Never stop dreaming Even when you wake up When you start believing The end is made up When isn't the case it's the illusion of your state Our prison is delusion And the bed that we make A New Years resolution's Just a choice and a date Let's start a revolution from the poison of fate Corporate pollution's got you sleeping awake Hip Hop is evolution We're just keeping the Faith

Who doesn't want a dream Sunday I'd split cream with you Sunday through Monday Forget useless nonsense Dance away your fun days Off into the sunset Meltdown when the sun fades Summon sunshine like you have only this one time Before your brains freeze fresh Chilling deaf like young minds I was told its cold If I'm adrift then the faults mines It shocks your talk box And rocks your temples like fault line Cool In the literal sense A touch of cryo to your bio subliminal Hence its cool if you're making it last Because the sweetest parts of life get taken to fast Who doesn't want a dream Sunday I'd split cream with you Sunday through Monday Forget useless nonsense Dance away your fun days Off into the sunset Meltdown when the sun fades Summon sunshine like you have only this one time Before your brains freeze fresh Chilling deaf like young minds I was told its cold If I'm adrift then the faults mines It shocks your talk box And rocks your temples like fault lines Cool In the literal sense A touch of cryo to your bio subliminal Hence its cool if you're making it last Because the sweetest parts of life get taken to fast Who doesn't want a dream Sunday I'd split cream with you Sunday through Monday Forget useless nonsense Dance away your fun days Off into the sunset Meltdown when the sun fades Summon sunshine like you have only this one time Before your brains freeze fresh Chilling deaf like young minds I was told its cold If I'm adrift then the faults mines It shocks your talk box And rocks your temples like fault lines Cool It shocks your talk box and rocks your temples like fault lines Who doesn't want a dream Sunday I'd split cream with you Sunday through Monday Forget useless nonsense Dance away your fun days Off into the sunset Meltdown when the sun fades Summon sunshine like you have only this one time Before your brains freeze fresh Chilling deaf like young minds I was told its cold If I'm adrift then the faults mines It shocks your talk box And rocks your temples like fault lines Cool Cool Cool

Are you ready for the final weekend Beats hit tissue and your pulses weakened Living like tomorrow's a mirage or a beacon Pound another breath of fresh air if you're decent We're trying to enjoy this while it lasts Before somebody has to spoil the bash with a blast I'm gonna percolate like I've worked too late Take a moisture break and let it circulate And get proper as war time etiquette Music colors sentences like subject and precicate Waves moving through the oxygen so delicate Through two senses Feeling like you're healing relevance through the censors Subconscious aims over logical fences Nocturnal games live optical lessons Interpreting things with new lenses If emotionally detached Connection recommences In evening sentiments the empathic living glow Shows impactful evidence graphic as a star of snow Any year could be the one we fear but know It ain't here until it is we're still on the globe Mind where you tread as the Earth feels your soles Nobody knows the steps to this dance or their roles Because any second we can die from our weapons Any minute we can meet the infinite Any hour we could greet higher power Any day now any day now any day now any day Are you ready for the final weekend Beats hit tissue and your pulses weakened Living like tomorrow's a mirage or a beacon Pound another breath of fresh air if you're decent Its kind of tragic sometimes it makes me manic So I fight against the panic to do damage and I mange With funk so sane the smell stains your brain cells When front row steps on stage and play themselves Fill your hourglass cameos to the last granule Life has no manual autopilot off manual Seems to be the paradigm unaware of where am I Sound crests to mirror tides reflecting in the moonshine Heaven knows we'll miss this instant in due time Push that rhythm passed the next threshold and lets go Under nights parasol until we drop like set Sol Peddling decibels you can audit with retinals Straight body talk edit all the conventional On the social sidelines B-Girls B-Boys Be ground breakers of the globe Can't avoid the void so fill it With fulfillment foothold on the voyage Enjoy final trip out Until your vital blips go straight And you're packaged like a gift to the place beyond the gates Any second we can die from our weapons Any minute we can meet the infinite so Are you ready for the final weekend Beats hit tissue and your pulses weakened Living like tomorrow's a mirage or a beacon Pound another breath of fresh air if you're decent

Hush don't tell me This is the best song Skip to tangent thought Lived foreshadowing next wrong From self determined angles Born from double helix tango Even spider legs get tangled Back to neural center pain goes And comes again Without my permission Information storms out And I'm chasing apparitions The climate of my environment Is unchanged by brain emissions If I'm violent on the inside Am I pained by this admission Hush don't tell me I don't want to find out The answers to everything don't rain on my drought Divine clout is all I'm seeing That'll sway my route Talking about unseen hands Drawing unseen doubts Building in the background of an undreamed house I've got room for improvement But I'm rarely ever there When I underestimate myself And over prepare No quarters spared our world is all that we've share We each have a piece of peace And life's a circle so we're squared Hush don't tell me How crazy am I Rhetorical inquisition with the gallows reply Interrogation tortures shallow Versus deep dives Digging at the skies Hoping I can swim for sure Floating upon ideas Closely lying on the shores Of an infinite coast Where the oceans served As land and man's host When the lamb and lion come to Zion for the last roast I'll be drowning in salvation Pouring wine for the toast Hoping all of God's creations saw the flood And built their boats Hush don't tell me I haven't built mine yet I was busy warning others And got lost in their mindsets

I'm passed ecstatic Yes and everyday is magic Happening before it vanishes More beautiful than tragic Some paths had me damaged From those missteps I've managed To see that laughs have an advantage Over sadness on an average The brain's a boxer It'll fasten up your casket Or unlatch your straight jacket If you fashion what you imagine Into something tangible Instead of trying to mask it Radical or status quo I don't abandon hope I stay upon no battered roads On every line I've wrote I'm abnormally absorbing my own normalcy Openly penning poems To inspire generations of more poetry Spoken free and emotionally Hopefully together OMG And its stellar Each story a never ender Even though its only clever Until somebody says it better The void I found I felt Meant I couldn't recognize what helped Always picked on myself Just to get stoked and meld Might as well burn away the daze Until those burdens melt From that ignition point its swell Like fresh air to blood cells Proximity catalysts But fire doesn't fuel itself Neither do battles we fight Boiling down to what to weld The higher the flames height The brighter the light Broadcast across the sky When darkness strikes Hold your torches high right I feel like having a leash on life is tight So what I type say and write Is overthought and under hyped Quite often without oversight I override the urge to earn your pride Like its a prize because its not why I recite these prototypes My minds on overdrive Linking lines but won't rely upon One simile like I'm actualized inside Memory banks behind my eyes Immortalized once captured A level up from the spine Obviously honest records to process Objects get broken down Into efforts and concepts To redefine the best investments Into each project As sure as oxygen within our sighs are complex Through our bloodlines Impacting synaptic actions For a good mind soma soul interaction While the tolls stacking nobody's asking Before their taxing Cash in on reactions Mixed and matching moshing atoms smashing Let the bass shake you Out the shackles you create Vibrate to a higher state And shed a little hate Lighten up a lot Its great Slim chances fit or fate Float like a butterfly With a hurricane wake

You clear my mind The greatest killer ever is time Hour hand to minute hand Don't pay too much attention between the lines You stain thoughts like school chalk No ones ever too kind Can I reach you with this short speech of mine? You teach me not to think I'm on the brink Ever deeper I sink No warning signs Til we see the morning skies Please help me clear my mind You clear my mind You help me clear my mind You clear my mind You help me clear my mind You clear my mind A day with you is never spent time Recline Close your eyes Relax And enjoy the ride I confide to you These words are confined In peaceful fair shares My heads clear as air Transparent as the wind I exhale all my cares Fresh as leaf breathes As blue drips down the vine Drop what your doing And help me clear my mind You clear my mind You help me clear my mind You clear my mind You help me clear my mind My mind is clear every fear just disappeared Stumble through your ears Like the first song you hear Truth talks And proof walks When the voice is sincere Do you suffer from burdens on your brain Sluggish cerebellum From the worries contained Like a packed hard drive You wipe clean And tumble dry Come clear my troubled mind You clear my mind You help me clear my mind You clear my mind You help me clear my mind No escaping when my minds erasing Star gazing and I'm out here spacing No escaping when my minds erasing Star gazing and I'm out here spacing out No escaping when my minds erasing Star gazing and I'm out here spacing No escaping when my minds erasing Star gazing and I'm out here spacing out You clear my mind You help me clear my mind You clear my mind You help me clear my mind

I slang terminology using multiple genres logically When your worlds upside down whats up now My recreated visuals mimic your daily rituals Intellectual criminals just boosted my residuals Lifting pitiful spirits flipping instrumentals lyrical Because life is a miracle with evidence empirical Faith is invincible even when it is invisible Find comfort in the spiritual loving individuals Both introspective and inflammable we're implosive Impulse to combust like live ammo explosively Discovering harmony is arming me with ideals Banding fields as instruments Of all we choose to influence Where being world renowned Doesn't mean your words resound To reach substantial peaks destination higher ground I'm rolling stoned when inclined Lit like Bics flicked to wicks in the late night Stateside it ain't fine Staying on grinds to stay alive the state of mind I'm the cat that saves my nine For a rainy day even then I might decline Getting paid for hate and lies Pays up to pain later on unless you change sides Here's the news this is dateline Rather than rank whats live Why not have a great time On a late drive by the lakeside Isn't it sublime to find love through the grapevine Pay it forward on the dime sense Sharing in kind because we all got a shine And if you ain't seen the signs Seek deep inside because faith can change lives I'm still framing memories appraising my phases I'm still slanging phrases meant to comfort the aimless Kept my day occupation while we occupy nations Shed my preoccupation with predestination Enraged as toxic persuasions corrupted tops of foundations Been down on life's sensations on some occasions libations Until peaceful relations replace pandemic mass fixations It's just good conversations maintaining aspirations This is my demonstration of focused concentrations of love Etched in the basement pavement of our brain stems Until days end mushroom clouds loom like vegetation We're wasting future generations to fast consumption And nuclear radiation, devastation to fruits of labors ancient I'm over mass destruction make lasting creations With dedication to everlasting education In collaborations don't forgo the recreation I'm slanging verbal medication for deaths awaiting patience Making arrangements making arrangements Making arrangements Bag man bag man You gone hurt your back Walking round with those problems around in that sack Keep them heads hijacked and watch where you step Because if you're packing that fire burned is what you get Burned is what you get Burned is what you get Fresh baked we get cake and never stay bored Amazing Kanye 808's cruise with Lupe on his skateboard Common sensibilities built up higher ranked scores Twist a tale or blunt with Twista bet you he'll say more Than me in sixty seconds with a rapid paced flow But I don't race no I play my ace low I never chase dough or display my bankroll They call me JAV1 I should have came days ago Ok okay ok I don't even get paid for Inconvenient truth like Mr. A. Gore. I'm rolling stoned when inclined Lit like Bics flicked to wicks in the late night Stateside it ain't fine Staying on grinds to stay alive the state of mind I'm the cat that saves my nine For a rainy day even then I might decline Getting paid for hate and lies Pays up to pain later on unless you change sides Here's the news this is dateline Rather than rank whats live Why not have a great time On a late drive by the lakeside Isn't it sublime to find love through the grapevine Pay it forward on the dime sense Sharing in kind because we all got a shine And if you ain't seen the signs Seek deep inside because faith can change lives Seek deep inside because faith can change live Seek deep inside because faith can change lives

Simply complex Describes my life’s quest best I don’t believe in fate But in my faith I must confess When I make this date With destiny questioning What comes next for me As a human being Not an empty entity These plans of man Are footprints in the sand bar Just trying to stay dry When the tide returns To land hard Don’t forget the steps That led you to your current version Treat every moment sacred In experience like a virgin And you know it's true Man is sand is desert dust Just floating through An hourglass and the past That you grasp to Is just a ghost of all the things you were going through I just grew Like plants and trees I’m branching too Like buds and seeds I was born to bloom Like a cool summer breeze Just flowing through Birds and bees wings It’s the roots Of the trees That grow deep So we can climb And find truth which we need To sow our youth A new design For love and what it means To share hope inclined Through growth Planting seasons dreams To spring or fall Or the both When you share your art You tear your heart apart And give it out And dare to care In spite of doubts That someone digs What you’re about Be bigger than doubt And figure it out Whatever my last words were The ones you heard were From the heart I just grew Like plants and trees I’m branching too Like buds and seeds I was born to bloom Like a cool summer breeze Just flowing through Birds and bees wings And you know it's true Man is sand is desert dust Just floating through An hourglass and the past That you grasp to Is just a ghost of all the things you were going through I just tried To help you shed the past But you must look inside If all you see in house of glass Is what you’re trying to hide Know that happiness won’t last If to yourself you’ve lied Who am I Ask yourself everyday And get a different reply I'm just trying to change your mind If you want eye for an eye Before the day that we find The whole worlds gone blind Who are you Great question Best answered through the things you do Like the last autumn leaf Clings to life's big tree See yourself holding on Until you cease to be Mistakes can make for a Most prosperous harvest Missteps build momentum If properly harnessed Thoughts swirl around The ends and means Lost in the process We’re crop circles in a field of dreams And natural causes I just grew Like plants and trees I’m branching too Like buds and seeds I was born to bloom Like a cool summer breeze Just flowing through Birds and bees wings And you know it's true Man is sand is desert dust Just floating through An hourglass and the past That you grasp to Is just a ghost of all the things you were going through
