Track Name: Images(feat. Kawehi)
as I lay here all alone

My heart melts from icy stone

I recall my days of youth

filled with love and light and truth



you don't get it

no you just don't get it

sometimes things just come and go

You don't get it

no you just don't get it

These images are mine to own



holding on to heavy things

makes it harder to begin

letting go is always best

things feel lighter in my chest

And these images

I hold onto yet



The rain when it falls

the train when it stops

A girl with a smile

the sound of a doorknock

the tick of the clock

the touch of your skin

the feel of a win

A moon when it rises

sun when it sets

the look in your eyes

when I kiss your neck

the wind when it blows

freckles on your nose

the taste of red wine

the way you always blow my mind



As I lay here all alone

All these memories I have owned

Make me love, lighter and truth

is i'd never change my youth



you don't get it

no you just don't get it

sometimes things just come and go

You don't get it

no you just don't get it

These images are mine to own



The rain when it falls

the train when it stops

A girl with a smile

the sound of a doorknock

the tick of the clock

the touch of your skin

the feel of a win

A moon when it rises

sun when it sets

the look in your eyes

when I kiss your neck

the love in your voice

is my sound of choice

the best day of my life

was when you called wife

and

These Images

I hold on to yet
Track Name: Quick to Move Fast(feat. Sara P.)
I've got your number
I've got your home address
I've got a feeling
that you like this dress
let's have a dance
I smell the scotch on your breath
the same stench that you left when you left me in death
this is surreal
too candid to be real
you comitted the crime
i was awake the whole time
left in the past
you were quick to move fast
I feel no guilt your next move is your last
brutality
that is your name
your past and your future are far from humane
if only you could see me now
back then
pray you never ever see me again
there are no eyes from the satellites to pierce these walls
we've got about four hours til we see the dawn
another 24 before they know you're gone
you thought you were rid of me
but I guess you were wrong
wrong I guess you were wrong
you were wrong
underestimating
wrong and there's no debating
no debating
and i'm back to reality
wait
i've got the motivation
now
i feel your exhalation
how
my dear so easily i draw the fear in you that you gave to me
Track Name: Solace(feat. Kawehi)
When the world rests on a decision
and the home you've built looks just like a prison
start stripping away cement
I said what I meant

and there's no way around but through
the broken hearts i went through
and there's no way out but through
through you

I am without solace
stuck with an impossible dream
but i continue to live it
i'm not who i seem

and there's no way around but through
the broken hearts i went through
and there's no way out but through
through you

I love you like a flame loves gasoline, gasoline.
I love you like a flame loves gasoline, gasoline

and there's no way around but through
the broken hearts i went through
and there's no way out but through
through you
Track Name: Chaos Has Come Again(feat. Sara P.)
When you came here
it wasn't what was said
that wraps around me
and fear surrounds me
chaos has come again
my worth is taken
and leaves me
stripped
and gives you nothing
what can i say where's satisfaction
where ignorance made drunk
heaven is my judge
you shouldn't have to see this
foolish honesty and love
lets be wise
lets see nothing done
i should be wise
for honesty is a fool
and loses what it works for
ill set down the pegs
that make
this music
I'll seize the glory
in a world so gory
Track Name: House of Glass(feat. Kawehi)
slow down

feel it from the inside out

always know the pain and doubt

never hear what's good

never feel what's right



I am falling fast

in my house of glass

I am crashing quick

I'm so tired of your tricks

I am falling fast

in this house of glass

I am searching for a better way to be free

searching for a better way to be me

searching for a better way to be free

searching for a better way to be me



slow down

see the sun, the starts, the moon

shining oh so bright above you

always see what's real

always even in the night
Track Name: Smooth(feat. Kawehi)
In record time

the words were mine

Put ink to the page

gave the story a stage



And now it's your turn

to make me learn

your show to make

My words to take

you make it shine so bright



I only feel it in my bones when it feels right

ooh when it feel so right

I only feel it when it's smooth, quick and quiet like

ooh and it feels so right



ooh

on the inside

ooh

yeah it feels so right

ooh

and even if I could decide

ooh

I'd still say it feels so right



Look for the shapes and angles

your words are your key

some fit close together

quite perfectly



And now it's my turn

to tell you to see

the ways of your words

make me weak in my knees

and you make you make me shine so bright
Track Name: The Girl Who Called You Out(feat. Kawehi)
You make everything elusive
You make money out of stone
You teach a man to be symbol
Put him up on a wooden throne

You make bread out of body
You make me feel so naughty
You teach a girl to be an angel
Only to bring her to mercy
You could be the one who hates me
Cut me up in parts of nine
You could be the one who bates me
Blood is good, blood is wine

I could be everything that you wanted
some say I should
Instead I'm the girl who called you out
Just to show you that I could

you could be the one to holds me
in palms of your two hands
you could be the one who makes me
makes me hurt, kill, take, steal and

you can be so hypnotizing
you can be ever so loud
through the shouting and the raging
I still hold my head up proud

you do everything in the name
of someone else so high above
You say things that are meant to shame me
when all I do is done with love

I could be the girl
I could be your world
I could be the girl who calls you out
I could be the girl
To show you what you've got
I could be the girl who calls you out
Track Name: 3(feat. Kawehi)
there's no three in you and me

there's no love in this I see

only pain and aching limbs

steady hands hold heavy sins



I am dreaming, wide awake

left to walk in a shaky state

Packed my bags and hit the road

looking for a home to know



And so it goes

My life in throws

And so it goes

in your company

And so I go

Left you for the show

Took my three to the marquee



There is nothing for me here

no talisman to hold me near

empty shell held up in ties

you were born from a lie
Track Name: The Harbor(feat. Kawehi)
She said
these falling tears
will dry
and go
like the tide i fall back
and wait
until it is time
baby you still see me
slinking back on the sand
baby you still see me
slinking back on the sand

put me to the test
I'll swim the water
weigh me down
but I'll swim the water
i see the light from the shore
I won't see it in the morning.

I see a dozen lights up in the air
they move back and forth so slow
i see a dozen lights
they all have names
Someone's coming to see them
Track Name: Leaving(feat. Step Chylde and Ophleia Harper)
I find myself just staring out the window
waiting for a knocking at the door
She said lover take your time but hurry up
cause I'm sort of in a rush
did i spit this story before
much more than a crush
said she wasnt bout the lust
but her heart had some rust and
if i help her dust it off she'll be someone that i could trust
i said loyalty's a must
honesty's a plus
it takes more than your butter skin soft to the touch
I checked her out for baggage
she didn't have much
wasn't quite what i was used to but I'm sure I could adjust
both curious enough
we sat down to discuss
just who i am
future plans and such
she asked a few questions
i said excuse me for a minute
but my destiny is calling and I gotta go get it
tell me
whats your name
so I can tell my friends of the good man and why he came
I can't lie
at first you all look the same
but you're not like all the others
just here for fortune and fame
girl I'm leavin on the next plane
I don't know when I'll be back again.
but I'll be waiting for you.
