Track Name: It's The Chemicals (feat. Scarub)
Scarub:
There's a universe inside us, all made of liquid.
It's a case of inner space, chemically dependent.
Through the veins to the brain, a whole solar system,
And I'm a jet-setting space cadet experimenting.
Yep, I vow to this, I'm an alchemist.
I mix emotion up with thoughts and the outcome's bliss.
Inhibition ain’t my boss, without a doubt take risks.
The price of progress with that cost? I'll dish out them chips
And chip at it like a sculptor carve out a wish.
I'm on a chemical romance and life is a trip
A slow dance with destiny, and her hands I grip.
She quick, but I chase; freeze, tag, I'm it.
I keep running like a fountain, so deep as a crater is wide, high as a mountain goat.
And I'm immune to this altitude, got a high tolerance for substance. How bout you?
They say its abuse; I call it a skill rapid a river run through me like a chemical spill, no harm.
When I'm induced I live at will, whoa, the mind-marsh mellows like some lucky charms.
Blast off from an armchair into space.
So fast, so high got a sprinter's face.
So vast, vanilla skies, I can smell and taste the chemicals in them depending on the prescription.
Self-medicated chemists mixing up some inventions,
Experimenting and tripping,
Entering new dimensions.
With my eyes wide shut, intuition and vision,
Side effects make you feel like you're flying and swimming all at the same time, man
I ain't lying, no fibbing.
Throughout all found a wisdom broken down like a prism.
I think I'm neighbors with the man on the moon.
Chemistry's like music and I am in tune.

Come and lay, I'll kiss you on the eyelids,
then we'll sleep and dream good things.
Don't you know it is just the chemicals
in our brain that cause us pain?
Track Name: It Always Takes
Barely upright...
weighted down with stones
night after night.
To find your way back home

it's gonna take a little time.
It always takes a lot of trying.
It takes, takes, takes a state of mind,
and always takes a little time.

Keep your head up,
drown your days with dreams
of where you're going
and who you want to be.

It's gonna take a little time.
It always takes a lot of trying.
It takes, takes, takes a state of mind,
and always takes a little time.

Just do what you gotta do.
If it's good for me it's good for you.
Do what you gotta do,
do what you gotta do.

Face the great fears,
throw them to the birds.
Your expression
screams a thousand words.

It's gonna take a little time.
It always takes a lot of trying.
It takes, takes, takes a state of mind,
and always takes a little time.
Track Name: Pull, Push, Let Go (feat Eligh)
Call several times
to show you care, but you never come by.
If you did you would see
broken lights, but that's how it's gotta be.

We tried...
Pull, push, let go.
Timing is everything,
you said so.

How does it taste?
Does it burn and crinkle your face?
Do you see what I see?
Is it clear that we're where we ought to be?

We tried...
Pull, push, let go.
Timing is everything,
you said so.

Eligh:
Pushed you away, then I tried to pull back with a puppy and a promise of a cul-de-sac. A picket fence, paint it black cause you never came back, and the weather never got better, a veteran of misery. Complicated cadence kick around a can inside my head, I never say the words I wanna write. My demeanor cleaner, stronger, better yet to later hate the fader being only on the rocking chair at night. Television gleaming off my bod, for is what a sad sight. Had nothing closer to a fight for my life. Double-edged knife slice, heart slice and my part described in time inside. Screams like a newborn, and says I'm a winner and I made it through the winter, but the sun is getting hotter. Bought a ring and now it's in a pawn shop, I still think about you non-stop. The game, now I'm on top. I will not play victim. no longer the sick one with god as my witness. I'm in fitness mode, no longer pulling wool over my eyes. I'm an improviser, and the sky's core is on the rise. Hypnotizer, sympathizer, empathizer, because I give a shit my battery is energizer. Analyze a person under pressure cause you put me in a place of protection all from affection, infection is dangerous, feel like a stranger in love all because I pushed you out of my life, but now I let it go, hands are calloused and cold.
Track Name: I Won't Let You Down
You say I hold my drink with a nervous hand.
You say I do it all the time.
You say you're scared to be with a nervous man.
I think I'm scared that you won't try
...because I...
I won't let you down, so come on.
I won't let you down, so come on.
I won't let you down, so come on.
We can leave this town, so come on, yeah.
I won't let you down, so come on.
I won't let you down, so come on, yeah.
I won't let you down, so come on.
Our feet touch the ground, so come on,
so come on, yeah.
So come on, so come on...

Was I wrong to think that we had a plan
under a devil's throat full-moon?
So you want to be in a distant land
when all I want is to be with you?
Just know that...
I won't let you down, so come on.
I won't let you down, so come on.
I won't let you down, so come on.
We can leave this town, so come on, yeah.
I won't let you down, so come on.
I won't let you down, so come on, yeah.
I won't let you down, so come on.
Our feet touch the ground, so come on,
so come on, yeah.
So come on, so come on...
Track Name: Wishy Washy
Yeah...
Track Name: Jackie's Song
Here's to the sunny days that never stop.
Bad thoughts that go away, don't leave a drop.
Work hard and harder pray, don't give it up now.
Can't fake the love so we hip to the hop.
Here's to the light parades on all the blocks.
New shoes be struggling with dirty socks.
Stay close to family, don't give it up now.
Can't fake the love so we hip to the hop.
The song goes on and on, that's why we turn it up now.
The dark will turn to dawn, gonna live it up now.
From my head down to my heels we're gonna burn it up now.
Birds know how I feel, gonna bring the love now.
Bring it now...
Track Name: Before I'm Done (feat. Rugged Monk)
Life in the shade
is getting cold, and it rains.
I need the sun to shine on
my darkest place.
Nights. I catch stars
with a net made of broken hearts.
Tired of hearing, "so what?"
Things gonna change before I'm done
and out of here...
Before I'm done and out of here...
Before I'm done and out of here...

Rugged Monk:
The stolen legacy of Black Knights who live on. Even if I pass on my words will live on. Got a legendary mind, got a legendary soul; footprints made of gold, my words are etched in stone. I'm royalty, just like a prince, intelligent. Gotta watch the moves I make and my rhyming cause they crafty. Everyday the devil try to get you so you gotta be quick or you will become a victim. Change for the better, don't worry about Jezebel cause in the end the weight don't add up on the scale. When the lights start to flash and you really ain't prepared don't be scared, fumble up and you act unaware. Hold them bricks, play the cards that you're dealt before the books start to fall and they fall off the shelf, one by one. Start looking for help and you're staring in the mirror just looking at yourself.
Track Name: Piece Of Mind Through The Hardest Truths
Stepping backwards, gonna start this over
without the cold words that burn the eyes.
Letting go is hard, but my heart speaks.
Probably won't tell how I stumbled fast and fell.
You show the outside, but I can feel
someone else crept under the surface.

Find answers to what we go through.
Find peace of mind through the hardest truths.

Don't wanna make time for the final, fast hike.
I wanna slow down, feel the knife.
Never say I love, but get cold feet.
Seven acres in the heart of nowhere
can fix a broke mind, but can it steal
thunder from the shrug that made me

find answers to what we go through?
Find peace of mind through the hardest truths?

Answers to what we go through...
Peace of mind through the hardest truths...

Stepping backwards, gonna start this over
without the harsh words that burn the eyes.
Letting go is hard, but the heart speaks.
Track Name: An Ocean Of Great Whites (feat. Eligh)
We see paper as power,
as sex and greed.
Pretending it's envy
that turns us green.

It's an ocean of great whites
with no notion of what's right.

We love it, we covet
hordes and hordes.
But it's not enough...
Give us more and more...

It's an ocean of great whites
with no notion of what's right.

Eligh:
The ocean is so vast, the ship I man is ancient. I'm a fisherman from the past and the fog bank is my blanket. Seven seas I crossed and crashed, and thrashed to gain some cash. Remain at mast until I see my freedom pass. Well, free to blast enemies, you know we need our gas. American dream, cars, and speed, we need it fast. Too fat to run, obese pockets compared to most. Exercising greed, funding war with mouths to feed. Peace don't make money like bullets killing kids on the streets. Police take the shape of the beast to get their piece. American pie, dry, sour, and poisoned foul. But who am I to criticize? I love my lifestyle. While they die of AIDS, death brigades run a shade. We toss food while they starve and waste away. But I've got my nicotine, caffeine, and satellite TV; pacified, satisfied, who am I to change the scene? I'd rather change the channel to a plot to make some dough. We fiend the green, compete and lean the boundaries too and fro. Right and wrong, which way is best? I must confess, economic future dismal so I've got to fail the test. An ocean full of great whites circling, taking bites. Murder, money, and greed we hurdle like days and nights. Single parents do what they must as well as those on the streets. All around the earth all gain, no peace.
Track Name: Eight Words
Turning pages against my will
through chapters that aim to kill.
Broken bones don't take as long to heal
as a heart pulled out and peeled.
Will the blame fall light as snow?
Or crash like hailing stones,
tearing holes right through the atmosphere?
Eight words stuck like a spear:

"I don't want to be with you anymore."
She said, "I don't want to be with you anymore."

Burning bright and turning red
from replays in my head.
Angry eyes won't stop the smoking gun
by staring at the sun.
Do I fight after the fall with ghosts roaming the halls,
blurring the lines from ugly to beautiful?
Eight words to end it all:

"I don't want to be with you anymore."
She said, "I don't want to be with you anymore."

Somehow, someday
this pill's gonna go down.
Somehow, surely
the sun will pierce the dark clouds.
Somehow, someday
this pill's gonna go down, and I know
somehow, surely
the sun will kill the sound of,

"I don't want to be with you anymore."
She said, "I don't want to be with you anymore."
Track Name: We All Want To Fly (feat. Inspectah Deck)
We all want to fly.
We all want to fly.

Staring up at the blue sky,
you believe that you're gonna fly.
Leave the troubles you go through
below you...
just let them go.

We all want to fly.
We all want to fly.

There you are with your closed eyes.
Yeah, I believe that you're gonna fly.
So keep them shut tight and let go,
you're so close...
hanging on until it's done.

We all want to fly...

Inspectah Deck:
Want to fly so high, trying to escape this land. I reach a new height so when I look down everything looks like a grain of sand. My wings expand, my vision's grand. It feels so good, never give it up, gonna live it up till I meet the maker-man. Leave my troubles home and go where the buffalo roam. Don't rain on my parade, just let a brother zone. I believe I can fly, not physically, but all in the mind. I can circle the planets back to Earth, and it's all in the blink of an eye. Like, oh what a view. New faces, new places, just don't know what to do. The time is yours so climb aboard and you better grab a tight hold, too. So far away no one can say this ain't the place to be. Lets find a way, just fly away. Take my hand, you're safe with me. And it's safe to say that I'm straight today cause I'm high above. Feel how I love, this is where the angels play among the stars where I roam with God. See you around every now and then cause my feet will never touch the ground again.

There you are with your closed eyes.
Yeah, I believe that you're gonna fly.
So keep them shut tight and let go,
you're so close...
hanging on until it's done.

We all want to fly...
