With eyes wide Everybody stop don't move It's a homicide And it's come for you There's a war outside And I can't get you used to it There's blood over my hands tonight A ghouls calling Out to my piece of mind And I can't help myself And I can't get you used to it Blood spilling out the casket, the demons in me need feed And they running out of rations Soul tired, feet dragging Wove fabric from God ain't doing what I ask it Smile cracked cause I mask it Though my sadness doing somersaults and gymnastics No glory there to bask in The madness might just bring my body up to NASA I'm a product of failed marriage and bad karma Deep trauma and no will, chipping the armor False starters, no role models, it's all opera Cause we phantoms reanimated like my name is Madra A nobody, a hollow shell, an empty husk Organizing my thirteens 'for the day has won Most of us ain't make it to see 21 I'll be surprised if I'm alive before my 20's done It don't matter cause they ain't listening (Nope) And by that time I'll be way into oblivion (Yup) Tell Zay to pick a suit they can dress me in And tell the drama that caused it don't need the sentiment Peace y'all (I love you Duty) There's a war inside I can't break from But the war inside I might break from All this war inside I need a break from Matter fact, let me hit you with the break Why? Please hold me responsible No, I I don't like the monster I've become No, why? Product of the constantly abused Abused With eyes wide (With eyes wide) Everybody stop don't move It's a homicide (It's a homicide) And it's come for you There's a war outside (There's a war outside) And I can't get you used to it (Oo-we-oo, Oo-ooo) There's blood over (Blood over) my hands tonight (On my hands) A ghouls calling (Ghouls calling) Out to my piece of mind And I can't help myself (No I can't help myself) And I can't get you used to it If I control my own head I'm going for broke No more going slow We bout to go from dope to dope head You was one of the goats, you spun to a ghost You turned to a dummy, you dumbin the most You stunted your growth You wanted to go republican You wasn't one of em could have kept it a hundred You ain't let none of em know How you plummet to one of them lows No covering But you don't run from what comes with it tho That's cause it comes with a glow That kind of pain turns to power Then runs through your soul If you allow it you can roll up blunts full of gold, smoke em Now you make an arm and legs outta toe Learn how to control it, you ain't gonna know how to function When your son don't want you to go but you gotta You going to war with his momma You want him to know his fathers a rider You never forget em you gotta remind em You needed to help to beat those demons, you conquered em dolo Mission accomplished Almost I do gotta know what schools he enrolled Never thought we stoop to this low Even when doc gave you the truest results we knew it We tried to scoop him, its slow You keeping him close, you keep him exposed What good you doing him? You barely keeping a pulse Now the evil is shown, you seeing your whole family croak You reaching for dough, am I even human? I know I'm lighting the fuse but Shouts to Medusa for producing this flow I ain't using it though Why? Please hold me responsible No, I I don't like the monster I've become No, why? And I can't get you used to it

GENTLE MIND 04:42
I'd break the rules for you I'd tell the truth for you Without no hesitation Cause you're the one I belong with Under the fallen stars Without no reservations It can't get no better, yeah Won't you come and let us in? I've been thinking of you all this time (And I can't get no sleep) The right dose of medicine If you come and let it in Something for your gentle I'm coming out for what it owe me Sick of all the lies that you sold me Who said you get it by your lonesome? Won't do you good in the long run Not much to trust about em these days So I'm out here on the freeway Yelling nah-nah-nah-nah (There's a heathen in this house and it's trying to get up out) Broken sense of self, religion dwelled into madness Slipped me a spell, had an imposter in my absence My laugh wouldn't sing the same way This Oz ain't a wizard Lotta time to reflect, not enough to come fix it This city swallow the ones who don't move fast enough And I can hear them coming after us The long arm of the law came to cause war and jaw you up But dont get far when we harvest love cause I'd break the rules for you (I'd break the rules) I'd tell the truth for you (Oh I'd tell the truth for you) Without no hesitation (Without no, without no, without oh-oh-oh) Cause you're the one I belong with Under the fallen stars Without no reservations It can't get no better, yeah Won't you come and let us in? I've been thinking of you all this time (And I can't get no sleep) The right dose of medicine If you come and let it in Something for your gentle mind, mind, mind, mind I'd break the rules for you I'd tell the truth for you Without no hesitation Cause you're the one I belong with Under the fallen stars Without no reservations It can't get no better, yeah Won't you come and let us in? I've been thinking of you all this time (And I can't get no sleep) The right dose of medicine If you come and let us in Something for your gentle mind The hounds out for blood, karma coming for us fast Got a couple good friends, but they all going bad So tonight I'm Running on fumes Hitters at my heels and they just might shoot So I don't give a fuck bout what you expect I could care less bout what you say I said I'm coming out for what they owe me And you gonna have to kill me if I'm prey Perpetuating culture of ownership to the masses At 16 I went six speed on a jet ski Coast flows, made the beats and coached those Who ain't know you could be more what the hope holds of those Who don't bare witness to the aire spitting Splitting image of god Just the fact that you create with ya mind Puts your placement at large Simply place and a time when the fates will collide So I'ma keep crate digging or ridging the system until they all set aside The lies and give us ours, the pride, a young lion Like I'm tied to the bloodlines of a young Simba All this scar tissue could of lead me down a villainous arc But I smartened up, the devil's at large And when I find it I'ma probably catch a charge off of weapons assault Putting paws on you pussies once my dogs whistle I sneeze at you so you know that God blessed you Be wise

SKYLINE 04:04
Falling from the skyline Where it drops me off I might find Danger Goosebumps from the highrise I catch a buzz, think I might fly To Danger I might live forever if I die tonight It's my pride I can't put aside So I'm the sacrificial lamb Are we living if we don't cross the line? It suicide but the slaughter quiet What's good about that? What's good about that? Road to salvation We all make mistakes we can't take back If no God's waiting And no one will save me I can stand Lone in this path Falling from the skyline Where it drops me off I might find Danger (Woo) Goosebumps from the highrise (Goosebumps from the high) I catch a buzz, think I might fly To Danger Ayo, no need to wake me, I've done the education So this conversation is based in the facts, yeah Here's your invitation, to the liberation The status in place is puppeteering the masses No safety when we crash it, better stick the landing The forecast is disastrous and everlasting Plastered above the rafters The whoremasters speak accents and reek of fallace The fucking bastards Exiled, a pariah, a thought, a desire Defiled and divided of an iron will Apply your chill to the swell of hell where your devil dwells Excel in settling or exhale medley, I'm out peddling Are you straight? They stripped naked and lace double agents With fear, a fragrance, to think you wasting up space in this race To clear the sidelines, what an odd science Find your kind side, a benign bias From my wide eyes, flying while I'm Falling from the skyline Where it drops me off I might find Danger Goosebumps from the highrise I catch a buzz, think I might fly To Danger I might live forever if I die tonight Its my pride I can't put aside So I'm the sacrificial lamb (Yeah yeah, brrr, yeah yeah, woo, uh) Are we living if we don't cross the line? It suicide but the slaughter quiet What's good about that? What's good about that? (Brrr) Road to salvation We all make mistakes we can't take back If no God's waiting And no one will save me I can stand Lone in this path Falling from the skyline Where it drops me off I might find Danger Goosebumps from the highrise I catch a buzz, think I might fly To Danger I might live forever if I die tonight

TWILIGHT 03:20
It's twilight in these streets There's been a bloody murder And I'm not sorry I just put a man to sleep The old me's gone So call somebody But don't tell them all my secrets It's the fear of this That keeps me running Were we chosen? Are we rejects? Will they understand? The question leaves me wondering Neck peeking out the suicide doors Doing donuts in a noose, yeah (Yeah) Blood covered, blade runner, spray something Pistol popping the head off the roof, yeah (Yeah) I took the top off the Maybach now I got the summer blues I'm not amused by the modesty, turning ya trauma to dollars The honesty measured in views Cause this is malevolent cinema, my sentences, sentences Comprehension at minimum Brush the curriculum, I can deliver ya literature From my heart like Melissa, look There's terrorist on American soil Hilarity is just hysterics that's foiled by clarity And I laugh at the lack of the morals, cause where are we going? I'm hoping Euphoria Yeah Just trying to reach that special place ya know Most my nights are spent working hours on end For a record you're only gonna hear three minutes of, but uh Nonetheless I'm bout to put you onto the alchemy It's another saga of the Oscar award winning sword swinging Variety, Arsenic, the way I act up Snactch up the beat like vandal Hold up Handle like it's in the hands of Christ While they chained by their masters I peel it back like a tassel The bag bloom like vacuum While I mack like a bite out the apple All the years I let fear compromise the alignment of self And let money define what is wealth But that old me dead, bleed out (Yeah) I put to rest all the wretched old tactics And these are not a brag these are facts Twenty something albums in three years, who did it? Bodied everybody on the bill, who winning? You need the hype to prevail and I get it I need my mind and I'm chillin' Shit, but that ain't nothing new I been behind the designing, producing The masterminding Turning cold demos into diamonds It's all in the technique Night after night and I will not be silenced The midnight messiah Riding into twilight with the sight of the sun right behind him Rejected more times than I care to admit now it's hand over fist I'ma stand as a man where I am cause I am who I is I used to sneak in the closet Lock up the door, go to sleep on the floor, where I bawled Thinking I don't deserve to live As a punishment, and told none of friends I ain't love who I was I was sick and depressed Fucked up in the head Almost hung by my neck in the same room I wrote this in I don't boost this in no particular way I'm just baring my soul without regret and the shame All the say if my heart stopped pumping today I've been blessed that I made it this far And I did everything that I could to put a smile on ya face By the grace of my god Moving Dancing in the night off to the music My skeletons are with me necromancing Hands out the heavens someone soothe me I don't know what's grabbing at my ankle So please don't get involved with me It's dangerous If you still don't get it I can't make you How can you expect it to be painless When paranoia's at you from all angles

(I've been lost up in my) When you've fallin This will be the melody I'll sing for you Hear it calling Deep within, the echos from our years of youth You take me higher than I've ever been in my whole life (I've been waiting way too long) The only heaven in this devil filled depression, I find Sick of your spells and your ideations, you Don't love me well, you don't love me bravely You're petrified Look who's terrified You'd give me hell 'fore you give me safety Could never keep me still In your traveling distant memories I'm smoke Something I've noticed When you're moving too fast Cause you think that every next day here just might be your last But before you go waging a war that you can't fight by your lonesome I wrote some notes to soldier you on Here's your song for When you've fallin This will be the melody I'll sing for you (I've been lost up in) Hear it calling Deep within, the echos from our years of youth (It's been several months since I) You take me higher than I've ever been in my whole life (I've been waiting way too long) The only heaven in this devil filled depression, I find (Felt the same since I saw the) Road to salvation I've made some mistakes I can't take back (I've been lost up in my, I've been lost up in my mind) There's no God waiting No one to save me, so I stand Lone on this path Falling from the skyline With this blood all on my hands Murder in the twilight And my gentle mind is spent The ones with most to lose Must dodge all the illusions They prey on your confusion And your paranoia, paranoia
