Fearless (free) 03:38
What are you afraid of/ most are scared of change/ or scared to be themselves so they're all the same/ I'm scared too when you're near me/ I'm scared you'll be here but you won't hear me They ask why I never sleep/ cause I'm afraid too/ f I close my eyes I may not get up and save you It's not enough to keep hope alive/ if what they say is true/ the meek will survive/ each day we try/ to not cry as much/ someone still dies/ and eyes erupt/ in tears for fears/ like 80's pop/ is life just crazy/ maybe not/ I've seen otherwise/ guys with out pride/ that terrorize/ gays that have it/ in ways its tragic/ like graves and caskets/ you saw buried/ that we carry/ long as we breathe/ my heart on my sleeve/ pen in my fist/ watch on my wrist/ that broke last year/ I stand here/ try to stand clear/ of the drama/ the blocks a sauna/ unless your momma/ is Sarah Conner/ its gonna be hard work/ like construction/ or fire fighting/ dope production/ or lyric writing/ my spirits fighting/ with its dukes up/ without a doubt/ yours slugs it out/ like mike tyson/ and king hippo/ slit the jab/ keep it simple/ don't get hit/ that's essential/ to reach your potential/ you gotta be Kimbo/ slice of the good life/ all I ask for/ just a few bucks/ and a chance to rap more/ my health and my feet/ on solid ground/ along with my peeps that got babies now Everday I pray/ before sleeping/ that's weird to say/ I got my reasons/ my faith keeps beating/ in my chest/ don't think its leaving/ place your bets/ on your own/ like runaways/ I'm one that may/ sucumb to ways/ of the heart/ thats due in part/ to me being me/ hopeless romantic/ and dope emcee/ wrote this organic/ like green tea/ trimming the fat/ like rap should be/ this has to be/ hardest thing I've done/ like making ladies cum/ am I the crazy one/ the lately dumb/ cant see the forest/ for the oaks/ just like chuck norris/ they're a joke/ living in the past/ Given all I have/ to be myself/ don't think that's bad/ though someone else/ wont see it important/ like recycling/ I pay the price when/ dues are taken/ the more men know me/ the less they hating/ I guess be patient/ foes grow cold/ like frost giants/ some flip rhymes/ I toss science/ and fight the power/ like the rebel alliance
Which One 03:37

Verse 1 She asked me if I was happy/ told her actually/ if she has me/ and it's us too/ what we go through/ cannot break us/ now I hate us/ life is made up/ of ups and downs/ More downs then ups is love enough/ must be for some/ not us how come/ her touch is numb/ like Beth Gibbons/ I guess living/ together never/ the best endeavor/ coulda been better/ coulda been worse/ first time she said let's share a bed/ couch and futon I should've moved on/ now it's cupouns/ and grey poo pon/ I like ketchup damn I messed up/ took those chances/ but I can't leave under the circumstances Verse 2 Scared to be alone on my own again/ once you depend on another ya trapped/ discovering that/ was difficult/ and it's my fault/ Should fix the bolts/ on my life/ to many keys given to she/ getting to be/ the laundry/ and groceries/ forgot how to do/ sad cause it's true/ she does it all/ but what's it called/ if for her trouble/ I say I've struggled/ to share my heart/ there's a part/ of me that wishes/ she's my misses/ empty kisses/ and promises/ is all I give/ she's satisfied/ It's in her eyes/ I just wonder why/ she always tries/ to be by my side Verse 3 Two years have passed/ it feels like ten/ if you'd have asked/ me way back when/ I'd say no way/ now I'm like okay/ baby comes in may/ yeah you heard me/ it disturbed me/ when she told me/ she had to console me/ damn, if only/ I was smarter/ being a father/ seems much harder/ then I bothered/ to think it was/ but she's in love/ guess that's something/ that means nothing/ since I'm fronting/ and keep wanting/ her to say quits/ but she don't say shit/ I'm not a dick/ I just go with it/ like Anniston/ in a rom com/ not panicing/ I'm staying calm/ but whats happening/ should have a song
Wish 02:03
I wish you could see the world/ the way I do/ take a view or two/ out my eyes would you/ that lady from the news/ still bugging me/ killed out the blue/ it's real troubling/ we're just so fragile/ and life is too/ you gotta be agile and make your moves/ But so much risk just makes me wish/ we lived in a place/ that wasn't like this/ where loves unrequited/ thugs get excited/ by drugs and high kids/ I close my eyelids/ try to ignore it/ but I'm too nosy like Truman capote/ I suppose we/ try to find peace/ just a piece of it/ but that's undiscovered like Star Trek 6/ we find war more like Wrath of khan/ so I stay calm/ my version of it/ like persian's covered/ express my faith/ the best I make/ of my situations/ wish I was patient/ waitings my strong suit/ but it's not and I've got to consider/ the more I live here the more I'll turn bitter/ but I figure/ that's the price I pay/ for trying to stay here/ just one more day/ I wish we had longer/ I'm sad we don't/ Wish you'll remember me but fear you won't
Drum For Me 03:53
Hook Give it give it all I got/ live it like i'm gonna drop/ any minute any second/ but I refuse too/ I just keep on paying dues/ and do what I gotta do/ knowing I could never lose/ dven if I choose to Verse 1 language is dangerous I spit flames that'll burn my lips like candlesticks/ jack jumped over I act like Vodka spiritual dude fight imperial views while mokeries of democracy/ boil oil and soil it's under/ I wonder if Forbes explores how the rich/ use a war and the poor and exploit them quick/ i quit CNN cspan and fox/ never was a fan I'll be damned those cocks/ get my ratings when they hating/ didn't know better I swear they pagans/ always saying truth as they see it/ guess if you paying they'll believe it/ now liberal media's wikipedia/ and shows low value like expedia Verse 2 Create life when I write kill men too/ payed the price to be nice how bout you/ what u spending to keep on penning/ your peeps is winning/ don't seem much/ I've seen stuff from teens that buck to Feinds that trust they'll get their fix/ though they broke their home is too/ ain't got much I notice you/ in the same boat a similar yacht/ I maintain hope pretending I'm not/ in the same struggle/ overcame trouble/ Pain of the hustle/ and dames that'll drain ya brain and ya muscles/ I tussled with em'/ fell in love too what else is new/ been through enough just made me tough/ I swallow this stuff when life just sucks Verse 3 Don't trust words I trust actions/ words will betray you I've seen it happen/ actions lie too/ like sleeping mutts/ so speaking what I feels no big deal/ when everyone swears they're being honest/ even promise when pleading nonsense/ Constant reminder whatever I say/ won't be taken as truth today/ Maybe it's crazy for you to believe me/ Maybe its crazy to think it's easy/ when deceit creeps and is used to speak/ I lust for beats and ways to reach you/ You can see that in verses I rap/ It's me verses crap I think is wack/ and the black cloud that follows me and mine/ but then again that could all be in my mind
