Track Name: Break The Sky
Looking out the window, thinkin' bout the possibilities,....
taking shit for granted, they demand I'm taken literally....
(So) every single word I utter is really just a preview....
cause it's hard when there's nobody around that'll believe you.....
And everyone be famous, but the fame comes with a price;....
maybe leave you hanging shameful, and nameless, without a life.......
I just take a deep breath, inhale inner reality,....
show it on the outside, make my family proud of me.....
Surrounded by the egos of the people all around us,....
it seems like the evil won't finish until it's found us.....
They ought to crown us, for never takin' 5;....
Make our lives dedicated to tryin to break the sky....
I'll keep trying till I die; my heart's wide open....
the clouds are torn apart cause I left the sky broken....
The explanation for me ignoring your expectations ....
is I'm tryna break the sky, and exceed your limitations.....
.. ..
I’m tryina break the sky....
Reasons why....
Life that I’m living is living I cant deny....
I’m tryina break the sky....
Caught up in a lie....
With this life that I’m livin’....
.. ..
Dive into the ocean the water reflects the sky....
The reply is a splash determination in his eye....
Does he cry? [NO]The need to fly so if he dies....
His body withers away as if his life were a lie ....
The sigh of relief is a cry of a thief....
Heat in my head so I need to rhyme to a beat....
Time is to speak as a break makes me weak....
I need to find a way to the end of the street....
Please understand the cause of 16 bars....
So hard to in script so I rip this clause....
With claws that have ripped to instill this cause....
Causing me to break the sky as I fall ....
The ground is getting closer I need to break it to....
I need to break the mirror see it clearer in my view....
I needa break the school I needa find the crack....
I need to break the lock that keeps holding me back....
Im back on the track, but the track has me pinned on my back....
I need to make a full front attack im on the map....
3 million miles in the air crashing down at light speed....
Im just trying to break the sky like thunder and lightning ....
.. ..
CHORUS....
.. ..
I’m walkin down this hall....
And I think im walking tall....
So I reach up to the sky and I X2....
Ba-begin to fall....
Track Name: Hard Fix
When you don't know what you thoughts not true
you've lost all control, words crashed down on you
tell them what to say, they won't believe you
anyway, they'll just stay the same (x4)

I need a way to fix this problem (fix this problem)
I'm in a ditch with no ladder out (no ladder out)
So I build the strength to climb out
and make my song play (x2)

I'm stuck between to lies but the middle is jaded
the truth has been lost and the signs are faded
we sent troops to iraq, but we getting them back
cuz the fact says we lost three thousand across the map
sitting at a poker table, gotta two-six straight
do I go all in, or do I sit back and wait
money's not a problem, but I'm messing with my future
if my grades are lacking, why the fuck am I not tutored,
i love rapping rock, do i shift to a side,
why can't I take both genres and make them collide
Combined in it collibime, happing in my school, would i be the one to stand up, and die like a fool
if i don't wear the right clothes, popularity suffers
so why do i take my time, and get ready to fuck 'em
and not be what you want cuz im stuck in the mix
when your life looks like this, your live in a hard fix

(Chorus)
I need a way to fix this problem (fix this problem)
I'm in a ditch with no ladder out (no ladder out)
So I build the strength to climb out
and make my song play (x2)
Track Name: Down Under
When the going get's tough, and tough becomes hardest.......
It gets cold, and light becomes darkness....
cause the goddess has departed, leaving his heart starving;....
his soul so low and lethargic.....
Nostalgia and reminiscing of kissing your lips and feeling your fingertips got him wanting even more, ....
The demons can see you and him ain't even on even terms, and it's leavin' him burned, didn't know this was in store.......
this love is now a war, this buzz is now a bore.....
I think about you leaving and I want you even more....
The day turns to dusk, and dusk turns to dawn,....
it's true that you don't know what you got till it's gone.....
He'd move on, but it's wrong to forget, cause you and him both know you regret that you've left.....
(I) can't believe she'd get even by leavin'....
...but I guess it all happens for a reason.....
.. ..
Just close your eyes what do you see....
Do you see us or just you and me?....
Close your eyes cause I cant believe....
We’re so far under I can barely breathe…....
.. ..
Its time to reminisce about the past ....
The weather aint nice but the time goes fast....
A girl leaves you lonely the seconds turn to hours....
you’ve lost everything your will and your power....
So I hop in the shower wash off my sins....
I Clear my mind with some tonic and gin....
And If I feel special ill mix in a breeze....
Or one last hope that time could freeze....
And I could go back change an action....
Get me away closer to my satisfaction ....
This is so far from rapping not even a game....
Im on the same train that will bring me to the same plane....
Lost hope with no wings big engine but cant fly....
So if he can write but cant speak he might as well die....
So I might as well stop ....
My hands are hot but my heart just dropped....
.. ..
Juust close your eyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees....
Cause I cant believe....
So far under I can barely breathe....
.. ..
CHORUS....
Track Name: Never Too Many
Get rid of all the amps and the rigs and the mic I just want a pen and a pad some music to write life is never ending it's forever making a light you focus on turning a left I'm trying to make it all right
the same situation discussing the same choice my voice is a whisper in a screaming room of noise had me with my band to plan to make dreams and it seems I won't stop my life's forever green
it's been deemed by the gods and the moguls I spread the message forever stay vocal releasing my mind never have too many thoughts cause freedom of expression can never be bought
I've been taught and distraught by the meaning one day they negate me the next day I'm beaming clearly spit for one reason to inform the masses I have to keep rapping music's an asset
Never gonna stop, till the day I drop, so just get used to hearing my songs x4
sitting in the chair looking at the clock minute hand just ticks second hand tocks time goes by but I do not stop
I am not gonna drop if they hate alot this amazing spot upon which I stand holding and a mic in my hand so grand so perfect these verses are my purpose
no purses in my way I won't be hurt by what they say for what it's worth I've learned today the work you put in is the price you pay everyday I become more ready way more focused practice plenty soul feels bold and my heart feels heavy cause you know what they say its never too many
Chorus
Track Name: GTFO (Explicit)
Looks like ....
Im stuck in this place where all we do is get plastered....
Clearly what happens before and after....
The time moves faster my heart beats harder....
A game to the world to the game im a martyr....
And that entails parts of the charter....
That chart out what outgha be the things that we thought of ....
You know why ive since parted ....
[Well] im rhyming for the art of it I push farther....
And beg to be a part of it pardon this my hardest shit....
Is found in the darkest pit....
So as I start to spit I can only take one route....
It’s a one way road and ima get the fuck out....

Gotta get out....
Gotta get out....
(say what)....
gotta get out....
gotta get out....
(say what)....
gotta get out....
gotta get out....
....
I know, I know I gotta get out....
Gotta leave this place....
Find me an escape....
I know, I know I gotta get out....
Gotta leave this place....
Yeah, yeah....
.. ..
This whole damn place is just made of these fakes....
who take every move that i make as a mistake....
My heart's filled with hate whenever I awake....
I wanna curl up a fist and just hit you in the face....
Cause I'm enabling the fables, it's amazing, cause of lately,....
they've been taking all my patience, and I'm startin' to go crazy.....
Guys and Ladies, Ladies and Guys....
Look into my eyes, just hate and despise....
I pray to the skies, and try not to lose it;....
to keep a calm head, and just stick to my music....
they act so stupid, really it's useless....
So all I can do is just give 'em all bruises, I'm movin out, gotta get out....

Gotta get out....
Gotta get out....
(say what)....
gotta get out....
gotta get out....
(say what)....
gotta get out....
gotta get out....
.. ..

CHORUS....

Gotta get out....
Gotta get out....
(say what)....
gotta get out....
gotta get out....
(say what)....

Track Name: Glory Road
(verse)

At the start of glory road your the furthest from the glory,
so here we go
this is the message of my story
a little white boy comes from the burbs
his hearts hurt cuz no one takes in a line of his words
No matter whats had to happen
they taken a blinds
rich kids spoiled with crack, thinking they sick with their lines
intertwined in the melody
underlies, the truth gets crazy when he spits his words to the mic in the booth
keep it loose, never gets his feelings uptight
keeps upright when dawn kicks in after the night
nothing to change his mind or alter his perception
his recollection of the world is stuck in the damn section
of the music that is useless, he'll never get to use it
he could transform it into hits, that would never be confused with, no don't lose it man you better not lose it
but he's taking his songs right back so he can abuse it

(chorus)
he said we don't know how to move it
cuz i'm a black kid and i'm trying to make music
hip hops dead, but we gotta keep it moving
cuz we sick, we going show you how we do it
he said we don't know how to move it
cuz i'm a white kid and i'm stuck in the movement
hip hops dead, but we gotta keep it moving
cuz we sick and we going show you how we do it

(Verse)
we get five years back
with his wack rap
and his backpack
pickin up slack
trying to make cash
you all put him down, told him he wouldn't make it
but now he's walking on glory road and he's descended for greatness
pain requires patients, so i'm taking over places
everybody see my face
its a risk that im a take
can't afford to make mistakes
their's nothing to take back
so I look him in the eyes
LED give him your rap

Cat fat bat we going split crack rap chat while sipping on yat turn around thats his first rap, started with nursery rhymes, and then learned to control them grasped closely and don't show them
glory this is my story
we're from the streets of cali to the burbs
which is boring and now i'm touring
we're in superstartem
down to the low rider
eclypse entertainment was on the newsider

(chorus)
