Track Name: Blinded
Blinded by the sun
You cannot see and so you stumble when you run
Blinded by the night
Your delusion and confusion keeps you fleeing from the light
Blinded by your greed
You crave possessions when true love is what you need
The writing's on the wall
You gotta read it and believe it or you'll fall

It's all about that clean mind state
You keep running further and further away
And you're still hungry after you eat
You're bringing about your own defeat
So when you need me you just call
I'll be there to catch you when you fall
You cannot nod off inside their lies
Together we'll open up our eyes
Don't be…

Blinded by the sun
You cannot see and so you stumble when you run
Blinded by the night
Your delusion and confusion keeps you fleeing from the light
Blinded by your greed
You crave possessions when true love is what you need
The writing's on the wall
You gotta read it and believe it or you'll fall

It's all about that conscious choice
Cause how can you scream without a voice
When the words that matter, they get denied
And strength comes only from deep inside
And when you need me I'll be there
To show you the way out when no one dares
To give you a light to find your way
And guide you with sight to a better day
Don't be…

Blinded by the sun
You cannot see and so you stumble when you run
Blinded by the night
Your delusion and confusion keeps you fleeing from the light
Blinded by your greed
You crave possessions when true love is what you need
The writing's on the wall
You gotta read it and believe it or you'll fall

This should be misery, literally this is their thesis
You can find positive vibes but through telekinesis
If you're righteous then you will find the rest of Earth lies in pieces
Making way in the world for the wicked through cries and appeasements

You will battle for happiness over and over again
Crawling uphill is a struggle for millions of men
But if you try then you’ll find you get closer and closer again
Then you can share wisdom with those who are willing to stand

Battle for happiness over and over again…
Track Name: Dancehall (feat. Mr. Williamz)
I've seen the sun slip behind the sea
The stars stretching out to eternity
But baby, they just can't compare
To what you mean- What you mean to me
So I'll wait- I'll wait for you
At the dancehall

Yes I’ll wait- You know I’ll wait for you
At the dancehall

Staring up at the palm leaves
Salt breeze blowin- never felt so free
Me and you- yeah we were the only two
Out on the beach, and out of reach

Remember when we heard our song
I swear I could have held you all night long
I thought loving you could never be wrong
But now you're gone
Now you're gone

And I'll wait- I'll wait for you
At the dancehall
Yes I’ll wait- You know I’ll wait for you
At the dancehall

I say now how can I stop when you keep on keepin me going
You just cut off the current when I need it to be flowing
With every part of me aching- my heart is taking me over
And my head- It keeps spinning like I could never be sober
Cause there's another side of you that I can never ignore
You say you're leaving me baby- I say I'm missing you more
And I would never hurt you, burn you, cut you down to the core
But you got one foot on my heart and got one foot out of the door
Still I'll wait- I'll wait for you
At the dancehall
Still I'll wait- you know I'll wait for you
At the dancehall
Track Name: Golden (feat. Elliot Martin)
Frost say nothing gold can stay
I guess you can't measure how much a soul can weigh
And I'll never let this love unfold and fray
So my heart will stay golden after I'm old and grey
Frost say Eden- ya know it sank to grief
Don't mean to offend you but it's not my belief
Wanna scream to the world- there's only hope and peace
When you have a gold heart and give away the gold leaf

Frost say nature's first green is gold
But depending on whether the prior scene is told, it's a cycle
Forever infinity remolds the heavens
Relax and let the dream unfold

And why is it so hard for us to see
I'm thinking maybe we’re all just in such a rush to be somebody
But first ya know we must be free
And in time you will say- first I must be me…

Frost say nothing gold can stay
I guess you can't measure how much a soul can weigh
And I'll never let this love unfold and fray
So my heart will stay golden after I'm old and grey
Frost say Eden- ya know it sank to grief
Don't mean to offend you but it's not my belief
Wanna scream to the world- there's only hope and peace
When you have a gold heart and give away the gold leaf

Blessed be the water
New wave we honor
Lessons we a keep know gratitude we shout out
Live for each day inside its golden hour
Can't hold it in just give it away

Why frightened men keep fighting always?
Big world asleep but it turning
But the love will increase it no worry
Anywhere we grow the gold seed it returning
Ours is a story that begins today
Who with the power don't forget the grace

Blessed be the water
New wave we honor
Lessons we a keep know gratitude we shout out
We'll be together then
We all recover
Can't keep it in just give it away

Frost say nothing gold can stay
I guess you can't measure how much a soul can weigh
And I'll never let this love unfold and fray
So my heart will stay golden after I'm old and grey
Frost say Eden- ya know it sank to grief
Don't mean to offend you but it's not my belief
Wanna scream to the world- there's only hope and peace
When you have a gold heart and give away the gold leaf
Track Name: Fair Warning
Why do they try to put their reasoning aside
I look, they're teetering on pride- they get the heater and they hide
They sneak a little piece of life then hole up, obey, and abide
When all the Universe, it tries to get you reeling- get you right

Some people- they act like they don't know
Ignorant man backlines the whole show
Always looking for snack time, you won't grow
Never loosen the slack, I grab hold

This life and this music is just a part of me
We don't try to refuse it- it is not hard to see
Never gonna abuse it- I got a fair warning
So now I live my life to spread love

This life and this music is just a part of me
We don't try to refuse it- it is not hard to see
Never gonna abuse it- I got a fair warning
So now I live my life to spread love

I see the sun as always burning, always one
It never lets me down- it teaches me where to reach and where to run
So when life gets you down and people start to preach- the weight's a ton
Well girl now you know just where you can come for fun

We see the light as it is piercing through this dark and evil cloud
We hear the screaming of the system so we keep the music loud
We look for truth and beauty rising from the crowd
Father you must be proud
Mother you held it down

This life and this music is just a part of me
We don't try to refuse it- it is not hard to see
Never gonna abuse it- I got a fair warning
So now I live my life to spread love

This life and this music is just a part of me
We don't try to refuse it- it is not hard to see
Never gonna abuse it- I got a fair warning
So now I live my life to spread love

Why do they try to put their reasoning aside
I look, they're teetering on pride- they get the heater and they hide
They sneak a little piece of life then hole up, obey, and abide
When all the Universe, it tries to get you reeling- get you right

Some people- they act like they don't know
Ignorant man backlines the whole show
Always looking for snack time, you won't grow
Never loosen the slack, I grab hold

This life and this music is just a part of me
We don't try to refuse it- it is not hard to see
Never gonna abuse it- I got a fair warning
So now I live my life to spread love
Track Name: Smoke
She likes to smoke, she loves to burn
Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns
She likes the weed, she loves the herb
And ya know I need her more with every word

She likes to smoke, she loves to burn
Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns
She likes the weed, she loves the herb
And ya know I need her more with every word

My first words were you're gorgeous
You caught my eye- I think you did it on purpose
I'd never give you lip service
I'd speak the truth even if you never heard this

Cause when I look at you I see the sun shining so bright
I wanna be with you the morning through and every night

She likes to smoke, she loves to burn
Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns
She likes the weed, she loves the herb
And ya know I need her more with every word

She likes to smoke, she loves to burn
Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns
She likes the weed, she loves the herb
And ya know I need her more with every word

She sends me pictures in the bathtub smokin
I wanna jump right in- the thought is so provoking
She's on the beach surfin and tokin
I think she loves the trees more than she loves the ocean

She'd put aside all the other little boys for me
But when it comes to the ganja I just can't compete

She likes to smoke, she loves to burn
Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns
She likes the weed, she loves the herb
And ya know I need her more with every word

She likes to smoke, she loves to burn
Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns
She likes the weed, she loves the herb
And ya know I need her more with every word
Track Name: Rescue
I was looking for a way to spread my wings
I was looking to lift my soul
I was looking for a way to escape material things
I was looking to lose control

And music, it was there for me
My brothers, they were there for me
And this is what they said

Well ya gotta move fast, make the moment last
Always keep it humble even when the feelin passes
When you hear the thunder rumble and your foot is on the gas
Take a second to be grateful, look up in the sky and ask
For a lesson yeah this life is such a blessing
If you're guessing, look around and know you are blessed too
We've come together to see light in any weather
We're forever
We have come to your rescue

I was looking for a way to conquer dreams
I was looking for one a day
I was looking for a way to sew up those open seams
I was looking to run away

And my family, they were there for me
My friends, they were all there for me
And this is what they said

Well ya gotta move fast, make the moment last
Always keep it humble even when the feelin passes
When you hear the thunder rumble and your foot is on the gas
Take a second to be grateful, look up in the sky and ask
For a lesson yeah this life is such a blessing
If you're guessing, look around and know you are blessed too
We've come together to see light in any weather
We're forever
We have come to your rescue

I was looking for a way to release my pain
I was looking for some company
I was looking for someone to scream my name
I was looking for someone to be

And music, it was there for me
My brothers, they were there for me
And this is what they said

Well ya gotta move fast, make the moment last
Always keep it humble even when the feelin passes
When you hear the thunder rumble and your foot is on the gas
Take a second to be grateful, look up in the sky and ask
For a lesson yeah this life is such a blessing
If you're guessing, look around and know you are blessed too
We've come together to see light in any weather
We're forever
We have come to your rescue
Track Name: On Top (feat. Leilani Wolfgramm)
Steamin down the highway I'm a calm meditator
Lyric is my weapon I'm the bomb educator
I divvy up ideas- I'm a spark delegator
Droppin jaws to the floor like a shark elevator

While ya swimmin in another's sea I'm currently me
Ya payin for yesterday- I say weren't we free
I got nothin but love for a sweet reverie
That's why I gather my party up in a neat repartee

Did ya think I fell off- Nah
I been at the finish line waitin for y'all to catch up
I said I'm on top but still I don't stop
I said I already won but still I'm not done

Nibblin on aural nipples to titillate all the masses
Watchin women in painted jeans shake masterpiece asses
She needin to study and so she stays up and passes
If you see that I'm a spectacle then raise up ya glasses

Profligate professor- no waste for my successor
Success- tip of my tongue- a taste for every pleasure
No bath in my buillons but I baste in buried treasure
I lace my lap of leisure with haste in every measure

Pickin up pieces pardon the prime alliteration
Apparently people notice and perk with participation
But life is a puzzle- put it together with pride
And you'll probably find purpose if you put your ego aside

I move around a lot- I stop to spit a little
The middle is an enigma- I shop to get a riddle
Not privy to wiggle- baby I sing maybe to get all
Excited from aural pleasure like hearing a baby giggle

Did ya think I fell off- Nah
I been at the finish line waitin for y'all to catch up
I said I'm on top but still I don't stop
I said I already won but still I'm not done

I hate to see my people like a flower with the root gone
Drenched like they took a shower with their suit on
Benched- sit or you sleep- life ain't a futon
Time to strap ya boots on
Hike a million miles a week to get ya move on
Party like it won't ever peak to get ya groove on
Wig out with ya locks or be sleek and rock a buffon
Doesn't really matter- just be- and get ya truth on
Dready speak the truth mon

Did ya think I fell off- Nah
I been at the finish line waitin for y'all to catch up
I said I'm on top but still I don't stop
I said I already won but still I'm not done
Track Name: Home
I want my baby to come home
I want my baby to come home
She knows she'll never be alone
She's never gonna be alone

She gives me lovin in the daytime
She gives me lovin in the night time too
She gives me lovin in the mornin
She gives me lovin in the evening time too

She tells me everything is just right
She tells me everything is gonna be just fine
She whispers nothing will come between us
She says she'll love me till the end of time

I want my baby to come home
I want to bring my baby home
She knows she'll never be alone
She's never gonna be alone
Track Name: Through The Heart
Pick up the pen like I'm pickin up the world
When I put it to the paper you can see the colors swirlin
I got an army- alphabet of fire burnin
Lyric of liquid nickel- keep this world turnin

I see the Earth as part of me, so to be this free and easy
The Movement plants a tree- sows the seed just where the seed need be
The Universe is callin sayin that it needs me
You get hungry- I just let this music feed me

So I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
So many times I wanna stay but I gotta travel on
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon

Side by side we unite so we see the masses move men
Been a million miles- you can see just where this truth's been
You start a riot when you see The Movement provin
To the people that we are the heavy- see the roof bend

See another side of life- try my strife but release the knife
Constantly pressured to be the best- Joshua please be my light
Baby I'm tryin, if only you could just see my plight
Then we would never have had to try to survive this fight

So I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
So many times I wanna stay but I gotta travel on
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon

I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
So many times I wanna stay but I gotta travel on
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon

So I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
So many times I wanna stay but I gotta travel on
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
Track Name: Retriever
Spit out my drink on the shelf
Think to myself
What is left
Is there anything else
Hang up my belt
How I felt doesn't matter
I melt
I'm wet batter
I'm sweltering hot
But I'm not what I thought
The plot thickens then rots
Not the pick of the lot
Flick at my watch
Ticking them off like seconds
And then I cough
The trough of liquor down in my belly
Smelly with sauce
I'm jealous with thoughts
Awkward, I tell us aloft
Baby I'm trying to be good
Maybe I'm tying my hood tighter
A fighter flicking my lighter at petrified wood
Maybe I'm misunderstood
Burning and pissing in soot
Lazy but kicking my foot
Skating on thin ice and mud
Debating to weather the flood
Hating
No better than God wasting a litter of dogs
I bite them then spit and applaud
Writing a letter of fraud
To my mom, my sister then long gone
I'm wrong
I don't belong to this planet I'm on

God it's just so easy to point my finger and leave
But don't let this place get the best of me
Cause it's just
I've got one thing I need to retrieve
Don't let this place get the best of me

Now I'm in a spot I've never known
I thought I was grown
Thought I just guessed I could hold my own
So I left me alone
Started to sleep on my throne
Home is a drink and a cone
Can't even think and atone
Won't even blink at the phone
Sorry I have to be here
Couldn't just pass up the fear
Willing to give it my all to fall and laugh at the tears
Years just passing me by
Bye to my life and my pride
Why do I try
I'll just get high and stifle the fight
If I could take back what drove me mad
I wouldn't take back the bad
The greatest times that I had went with them
And even that alone is enough
Stuff the shit up inside
Puff then poof
It goes away like vision at night
Pardon me I'd give my right nut
To cut some of these scenes from this bloody debut
Strut then run at my dreams
Seems my dreams are all I need

God it's just so easy to point my finger and leave
But don't let this place get the best of me
Cause it's just
I've got one thing I need to retrieve
Don't let this place get the best of me

God it's just so easy to point my finger and leave
But don't let this place get the best of me
Cause it's just
I've got one thing I need to retrieve
Don't let this place get the best of me
Track Name: Habit 2016 (feat. Collie Buddz & Bobby Hustle)
You know I got a habit
It ain't gonna lead nowhere
Except to the many legions of the people with a problem
But nobody cares
Cause all I do is
Sit and dream about drinking and women and music
It's just gonna
Give me another reason to use and abuse it
But still I gotta

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn down
And so I light it up

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn
And so I light it up

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn down
And so I light it up

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn


(Collie Buddz verse)

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn down
And so I light it up

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn
And so I light it up

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn down
And so I light it up

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn

I smoked a zip in an afternoon
It’s 5 o’clock I’m tryna smoke all evening too
So weh you wan do, do you have a next link
Cuz I got a habit and it need addressing
You know I wanna hold it
Break it up and roll it
Twist it up and fold it any kinda way
I’m an addict like the ceiling
In need of that healing
If I can’t have it Ima feel some type of way
Cuz when we start smoke we nuh stop smoke
I’m from the west coast riding with the best smoke
You know seh it’s The Movement Collie and the Hustle
In the streets dem see me moving ganja man a hustle
Still you know I got a way of vanishing like the smoke in the sky
I gotta have it to manage the pain like smoke in my eye
Sometimes I light it up just to smoke and get high
Ya I gotta habit man I smoke to get by

You know I got a habit and I know I don't have it to give away
If I see it I'm gonna grab it
My mind is a mess and I'm always stressing
And maybe I'll never need this drink atop a tablet
Because I think my eyes are playing tricks on me
I think it's easy to see but I can't believe me
Cause every time she brings a bottle of wine I'm fine
Pass the chalice I know that you'll never leave me

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn down
And so I light it up

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn
And so I light it up

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn down
And so I light it up

I live and I learn
All I wanna do is burn
Track Name: Wild Time
To all my friends up in Philly
And to my family down in Charleston too
For all my faults please forgive me
Didn't mean to be so rude

I miss my sister out in Rainbow City
I miss my mom and dad out in Columbia too
I only pray that you believe me
God only knows my words are true

My eyes water as I scan the night sky
And I dream of everything that we might do
I fall asleep praying please just let me wake up
I need another day to make it come true
It's been a wild time loving you

Hop on a plane out to the west coast
To San Diego to record some tunes
Spend some time out in the salt and the sand
Watch the waves by the light of the moon

I thought of you staring at the Grand Canyon
And in the bitter cold out in Niagara Falls too
I only pray that you believe me
God only knows my words are true

My eyes water as I scan the night sky
And I dream of everything that we might do
I fall asleep praying please just let me wake up
I need another day to make it come true
It's been a wild time loving you

I miss my friends up in Philly
I miss my family down in Charleston too
