Track Name: Skyscraping
Some say faerie tale love is dangerous.
The same thing that I once believed of course,
But now intellect is a dreamy dove
and how you take me past the horizon love.

You sure got me up so high.
You sure got me up so high.
You sure got me up so high.
I can’t keep from falling
down so deep in love with you now
the ground is so far from me.

I’d say, fairy tales are for make believe
from the way, a hardened world can collapse a dream.
But why choose the glass with the challenged height?
My mind is infinite when it comes to flight.

You sure got me up so high.
You sure got me up so high.
You sure got me up so high.
I can’t keep from falling
You sure got me up so high.
You sure got me up so high.
You sure got me up so high.
I can’t keep from falling
down so deep in love with you now
the ground is so far from me.

Let’s say, you see in love what the blind man can,
those things beyond what’s firm and within our grasp.
Like sand shifting with whatever wind that passes,
so does, all you know and you think you have.

Hello love I don’t think we’ve met before,
how are you?
I’m surprised by how much they say you’ve hurt,
is this true?
Track Name: Melody in Me
I’m a key and you’re my melody
Without you my song’s incomplete

Flipped in time my best line came when you almost left me behind
A dissonant key I may be but your write the melody line in me
If this makes sense please don’t quit I just got hip to flowin’ like this
I know I was wrong but please keep me on and
Let me explain, logic insane runs like a virus straight through my brain
I know I was wrong but my love is so strong

I’m a key and you’re my melody
Without you my song’s incomplete

Things I say may sound cliché’ but honestly I’ve been so afraid
You’re so great but I can’t shake these paranoid schizoid thoughts I make.
That one day you’ll say ‘hey, it’s been nice but I can’t stay’
So long…long…long you’ll be gone
I guess that’s why I slip and slide preemptive minds don’t realize
When love is strong it lasts long so long so…

Even when I’m gone your melody in me
Keeps running on your song is sure to
Keep me safe and warm when I’m scared and
Weak it keeps me strong and on…and on and

I’m a key and you’re my melody
Don’t leave without you I can’t sing
You write the melody in me
Without you my song’s incomplete
Track Name: Soundtrack
Come on you hurry up let’s go!
Don’t be shy now swag your soul.
Hip hop junkies ya’ll rock and roll kids,
Afropunk what you know about this?

I like Streisand and Broadway esk.
Strange for some but yo, that’s my chest.
Odd time sigs metal intellect flare,
cause I’m a dreadlock rock star dying my hair.

This is the soundtrack to my stride and flow.
This is that good ish I’ve got to know.

Now who said right like Mike was it?
I fly high doing my shhhh…
I be quantum wormhole mad.
So what’s your ish yo what’s your swag?

Aint nobody else like your own.
Cause you got the stride and you got the flow.
Can’t nobody else rock your show.
Cause we got the stride and we got the flow.
Yeah you got the stride and you got the flow.
You got the stride and you got the flow.

This is the soundtrack to my stride and flow.
This is that good ish I’ve got to know.
Track Name: Lady Gives The Blues
If only love was enough
maybe it could rescue all of us.
But you and me we missed our chance in time
and only love can’t take it back…
Track Name: Black Lotus
Inertia
a splendor
a splinter caught in the spine.

When momentum
meets resistance
sends a shock through time.

But you can’t stop the motion now.
No you can’t try and slow it down.
No you can’t stop the turning ‘round.
Now it’s your time permutate.

Open your mouth and take
the deepest of breaths you can make.
Go on embrace the change.
Black lotus blooming.

Stretch up and stretch out wide.
Open and greet the skies.
Strong from your core inside.
Black Lotus blooming.

Something’s
got you under
muddy waters won’t let go.

But what’s under
is another
version of you that roots your soul.

So stretch up and stretch out wide.
Open your closed third eye.
Breathe in the breath of life.
Black Lotus blooming.

Take all your painful past
churn it to sweet molasses,
the nectar to your next joy crash.
Black Lotus blooming.
Black Lotus blooming.
Track Name: 225 Earth Days
Like Anias Nin,
stealth you lure me
in like your little bird.
I’m feeding on every word.
Opiate dream keeps me wanting.

Delta of Venus,
shimmering you slip
in under the pink
you can’t help but sink.
Cant pull out now, head deep in.

Now I’m under your control
My mind body you control
Venus Burns beyond the mercury
Murmurs turn to booming symphonies

You said cover me with your mouth, velvet and open.
Let me see how deep down your words are spoken.
Hold me from the cold,
hold me till I know,
how the words go speak them slow.

Now I’m under your control
My mind body you control
Venus burns beyond the mercury
Murmurs turn to booming symphonies

Just from one caress,
Takes my best to
hold on don’t let go,
hold on for more and more,
two hundred twenty five days…

Now I’m under your control
My mind body you control
Venus Burns beyond the mercury
Murmurs turn to booming symphonies

Now I’m under your control…
Now I’m under your control…
Venus burns…
Murmurs turn…
Track Name: Intervention
The dream of thousand dreams
These nights enlighten me
Straight haze are these crazy days…these days.
Souls war torn we need an intervention.

Raise your hands up high
If you don’t want it anymore
Let your voice out loud as you can

Our footprints weights of shame
This gravity is insane man
All the world cannot sustain much more taking
No

Raise your hands up high
If you don’t want it anymore
Let your voice out loud as you can

All these people cowering
Makes me wanna scream out loud
You plus me makes millions
We can turn this world around
See that violent storm approaching
We’ve got to move back from the sea
Paint the skyline with some good old fashion peace

Raise your hands up high
If you don’t want it anymore
Let your voice out loud as you can
Track Name: Lucidity
Come follow me to lucidity waking dreams are magical
A carpet ride where secrets hide the questions to unsolvables

A dream within a dream
This ever-waking scene
A grime reality of being stuck

Steadily swallowing your disappearing feet
The ground you grip to keep you head
Above the sky sighs out a love come
Breathe in from above the sky sighs out a love

Come follow me to lucidity waking dreams are magical
A carpet ride where secrets hide the questions to unsolvables

Clouds scream in streams
These thunderous symphonies
Are dripping life to meaning of things like

Pain transitioning
Nothing’s what it seems
Catastrophe gives reason to new
Love the sky sighs out above come
Breathe in all this love the sky sighs out above

Come follow me to lucidity waking dreams are magical
A carpet ride where secrets hide the questions to unsolvables

I found out the other day
You and me are not the same
Making war won’t change a thing
Except who lives and who ends

We’ll find out another day
None of us are all the same
Making war won’t change a thing
Except who lives and who ends
Track Name: One Second Pause
Woke up early morning to the perfect day
Woke up to the moment and my fears went gray
All the air electric from the here today
No worries for tomorrow or of yesterday

Oohh its so right
Mmmhmm just right
Oohh it’s so right
Just right so right

Oohh its so right
Mmmhmm just right
So right, right right
Oohhoo it’s so right

Think I’ll take a walk down to the new café’
Been meaning to stop by before life got in the way
Convo at the corner with the man who’s name
I forget when time moves quick but not today

Now I’ll take a bike ride across the city line
Let the money pass on by in four-wheel drive
Lend my hands to someone else so they can dine
Always thinking always meaning now’s the time

Oohh its so right
Mmmhmm just right
Oohh it’s so right
Just right so right

Oohh its so right
Mmmhmm just right
So right, right right
Oohhoo it’s so right
Track Name: Stars Hide Fire
So we’re not the same,
so you walk away.
But maybe you just haven’t heard
half the words I say.

Maybe I’m afraid
to let you in all the way
and understand, understand who I am.

Stars hide fire sometimes from the night sky
Gamma rays ablaze in your blind eye
Radiation haze you could be my halo

Rebel in the night harboring your secret light,
can you really find joy in denying?
Fear covered skin layer so deep that you’re locked in
What if you chose love instead though?

Star light, star bright radiate from me tonight.
Halo ghost ring now transforming.
Cosmic shift a bliss the gravity in me moves quick.
New volition. Solar mission

Dark star in the night…
Can I see your light…?
Rebel in the sky…
