Track Name: No Good For Me (Prod. Moderator)
Verse 1.
I was a young one dying to live.
Tried my hand at a life of sin.
Another night out roaming the roads.
Places where the wild ones go,
Caught my curiosity.
Now I'm losing sleep.
But then I faught against (staying the same.)
Finding different ways to play the game.
Turned to a lone wolf (lost in the crowd.)
Searching for my way back out.
Oh baby baby baby,
This life ain't no good for me.
Ain't no good for me.
But Still You Had me singing.

Verse 2.
She made me feel like I belonged.
Couldn't believe we, were still going strong.
As potent as the summer day is long.
I got higher as the night went on.
Look at what you've done to me.
Is this how it's gotta be?
I really wished it would stay the same.
Tried so hard to resist the change.
But after all this time flyin around.
I would soon find my way back down.
Oh darlin darlin darlin,
You ain't no good for me.
You're no good for me,
But Still you had me singing.
Track Name: Hard to Smile (Prod. Sevn Thomas & Jordan Evans
Hard to Smile

Verse 1.
I need somethin to believe in,
To keep me from feelin blue.
I got a list of my regrets,
And I'm wishin' their were few.
Now I'm staring out my window,
Memories I'm sifting through.
I hope and pray I see another day,
Cause there's so much that I wish I knew.


Chorus:
But today I can't smile.
Felt like this for some time.
Today I can't smile.
Felt like this for some time.
Today it's hard to smile.

Verse 2.
Avoided all the silence,
Since there was too much.
Returned to my comfort zone,
Because I had no one to trust.
Now I'm staring at the bottom,
I don't need a closer view.
I've grown so tired, so jaded, so cold,
I no longer know what else to do.

Chorus:
That's why I can't smile.
Felt like this for some time.
Today I can't smile.
Felt like this for some time.
Today it's hard to smile.


bridge:
So I'll take this moment,
Take this moment by myself.
Smoke all my reefer,
And forget this world.

Chorus:
Today I can't smile.
Felt like this for some time.
Today I can't smile.
Felt like this for some time.
Today it's hard to smile.
Track Name: Human Kind (Prod. DJ Charlie White)
Human Kind

Verse 1.
I rome this planet in search of what I can call my own.
With a name and a vision, but no where to go.
Did they give me advice? was it judgement? I wanna know.
Because I gave up on human kind oh so long ago.
A long time ago.


verse 2.
I rome the streets all alone,
Still I have a place to go.
avoiding all the busy people,
As they come and go.
Just leave me here with my thoughts,
I can't make time to say hello.
Cause I gave up on human kind oh so long ago.
A long time ago.


Verse 3.
Attempts of communication fall on deaf ears again.
Words that come from the voiceless echoing in the wind.
If I could wish for one thing, it would be,
You would believe me so, I
Regain faith I had in human kind oh so long ago.
A long time ago.

Where you goin' with all that money?

The truth is, I was born to roam.
Singing the same song with a lot of soul.
Left, right, never in the same spot though.
Remember where you are,
Gotta watch for the potholes.
Whoa. Take me by the lake,
At my grandmamma place,
Smoke a blunt up on the dock though.
Now, singing a brand new song.
Before you know it I'm gone.
And it go like...
You got your bags all packed,
Where you goin' with all that money?
Money (x7)

Track Name: Have a Nice Flight (Prod. Scotty Muzik)
Verse 1.
Take a look around you.
See the world from a birds eye view.
Never thought we'd be so high.
Keep the thought of falling far away from our minds.


Prechorus:
So far, so high, I can't explain.
For us, there's no need to be afraid.


Chorus:
We Keep Our heads above the clouds,
Just me, and you.
So we can stay above the clouds,
And dream, we're so free.


Bridge:
I heard 'em ask about my life, I say it's life like.
You gotta climb up, to know what new heights like.
Your on you're way up, it's been a long time right?
It's all good, I hope you have a nice flight.
(x2)
Track Name: Your Dreams (Prod. Oddisee)
Verse 1.
I spent so many days
Stuck in my mind.
Been searchin for something
I never thought I'd find.
I get the feeling
It's been here the entire time.
But still I have so far to go.
So I'll walk on down this path
Til I can't stand.
Run the roads in high hopes I don't see a dead end.
Is it really bravery when you've grown oh so tired
Of how life moves too slow? oh can't you see?



Chorus:
(So you gotta come on baby).
Work, grow, plot, scheme.
Follow, your dreams.
(So you gotta come on baby baby).
Work, grow, plot, scheme.
Follow, your dreams.


Verse 2.
A long while ago I was told to get used to being different.
No matter where I choose to go there's hope I make a difference.
And in every battle for what I stand forI dont regret a thing
Even if I hadn't won.
There will always be a crowd full of pretenders.
And who you find among those faces might surprise you.
It should be easy to, keep this advice close to you.
The cliche that says stay true.




Chorus:
(So you gotta come on baby).
Work, grow, plot, scheme.
Follow, your dreams.
(So you gotta come on baby baby).
Work, grow, plot, scheme.
Follow, your dreams.

Track Name: Spark My Soul (Prod. Kris Fame)
verse 1.
Took a trip to the city.
Places and faces passing through my memory.
And I'll get lost in the crowd again.
But it doesn't matter, I stand out in this moment.

Prechorus:
Paranoid from all the cars passing.
Everybody's watching, I swear I'm alright.
I'm jaded cause the boredem I've been used to for so long.
In my own world until I wander into...


Chorus:
Someone that could spark my soul, ahh baby.
Someone there to remind me that we,
Should let Things go, ahh baby.
Before we know it, the grey skies are turning
Into sunshine.
Into Sunshine.

verse 2.
She's the perfect distraction,
From all the crazies and their antics and their chaotic ways.
1 excuse or a reason,
To step away from the crowd with her...


Prechorus:
If all those eyes we pass by are judging,
Everybody's watching but we'll be alright.
Wish I can keep cool, cause I'm not used to this at all.
We'll take on this world, just us 2.

Chorus:
Someone that could spark my soul, ahh baby.
Someone there to remind me that we,
Should let Things go, ahh baby.
Before we know it, the grey skies are turning
Into sunshine.
Into Sunshine.

Bridge:
We'll Be Fine.
I'm just trying to take my time.

Chorus:
Someone that could spark my soul, ahh baby.
Someone there to remind me that we,
Should let Things go, ahh baby.
Before we know it, the grey skies are turning
Into sunshine.
Into Sunshine.

Silver Lining


Verse 1.
Now take a look at this crazy life we're living.
Who woulda known it would be like this.
I Got a Story For ya everytime we kick it.
Who wouldn't wish for a life like this baby?
Escape, from the boredum.
Just trying to live a little.
Cause we are only getting older.
So can you do this with me? Can you do this with me?

Now things are good, so it's a go,
Got no point in movin slow,
Their lips ain't closed but they can't sink this boat.
We stay afloat.


Chorus:
It's all about the life that I'm livin'.
I'm only tryin' to beat the time limit.
I start to see the silver lining in it.
I found a while ago it's my decision.
Now everything's OK.
Yeah I get it.
I know I'm running outta time.
Get up and out because I gotta get it.
It only matters if your mind's in it.


verse 2.
Now take a look at this crazy life we're living.
Only for a while, it's been like this.
(just livin', livin.')
And I try to pack as light as I can,
Because a lot of times I wind up trippin, yeah.
Well I try not to beat myself up over every single mistake that I make.

Now things are good, so it's a go,
Got no point in movin slow,
Their lips ain't closed but they can't sink this boat.
We stay afloat.

Get up and out because I gotta get it.

Bridge (Dennis R. Sumlin)
I had to respect myself, love myself, and direct myself
Before I was ever able to love anybody else.
That was a long road, but now that I'm on top,
All my dreams are a go.
I'm bubbling with talent,
And oozing with charisma.
And I would recommend to you, to use this formula.
More self confidence, less dysphoria.
I'm on top now and there's nobody better.
I tried to tell ya.
The silver lining is eternal and forever.


Chorus:
It's all about the life that I'm livin'.
I'm only tryin' to beat the time limit.
I start to see the silver lining in it.
I found a while ago it's my decision.
Now everything's OK.
Yeah I get it.
I know I'm running outta time.
Get up and out because I gotta get it.
It only matters if your mind's in it.
Track Name: The Chase (Prod. Oddisee)
Verse 1.
You went so fast down the path,
Of the ones that are,
Watchin, watchin those circuses
With 3 rings
I had a laugh but its actually tragic,

Lookin back at all, the myths we still believed.

Let's take a leap into the future.
The time ain't near, and here is not the place.
Let's leave this life that we're so used to,
I change my mind in 3, 2...


Chorus:
What are you chasing, chasing, chasing love?
Now tell me,
What are you runnin, runnin, runnin from.


verse 1.
Another trip down the rabbit hole and,
I saw a place that looked familiar to me.
You used to run from the ones in the shadows.
Looked in the mirror at someone you thought you've seen.
The word is out, I guess we couldn't keep a secret.
So was the moon, we were dancing with our inner demons.
I'm goin crazy thinking I deserve to be here.
I change my mind again in 3, 2...


Chorus:
What are you chasing, chasing, chasing love?
Now tell me,
What are you runnin, runnin, runnin from.


Bridge:
I went so fast down the path,
Of the ones that are,
Watchin, watchin those circuses
With 3 rings
You had a laugh but its actually tragic,
Thinking back at all, the myths we still believed.
I'm looking back from the present.
The time ain't near, and here is not the place.
Let's keep this life that we're new to,
I make my mind up in 3, 2...


Chorus:
What are you chasing, chasing, chasing love?
Now tell me,
What are you runnin, runnin, runnin from.
