Track Name: Lift Me Up
Lift me up
I've been down
Sick of the same old feeling
Pick me up off the ground
I need some instant healing

Lift me up
I've been down
Sick of the same old feeling
Pick me up off the ground
I need some instant healing

I've been working
But it doesn't seem to pay
Spent all my money
on another rainy day
I'm still looking for a place to get away
Lose all my troubles in an instant holiday

Lift me up
I've been down
Sick of the same old feeling
Pick me up off the ground
I need some instant healing

Lift me up
I've been down
Sick of the same old feeling
Pick me up off the ground
I need some instant healing

It's getting harder by the day to rest my head
It's been a struggle just to make it outta bed
I've been thinking bout a way to get ahead
I lie awake and wonder where it went instead

Lift me up
I've been down
Sick of the same old feeling
Pick me up off the ground
I need some instant healing

Lift me up
I've been down
Sick of the same old feeling
Pick me up off the ground
I need some instant healing
Track Name: Angel
I'm waiting on a one-way getaway
fast lane freeways running like a hurricane
you're looking for another road to sanity
from insane can’t stay
better find a remedy
I'm telling you your luck won't fade
ace king hot hand, killing time, you can stay
You're telling me my luck won't fade
hot hand, black jack, just in time to break the bank

Hear a voice like an angel from across the sea
drift into sleep see her singing to me
never sounded so sweet, always gone after we meet
open my eyes to find reality
I'd have been better off inside my fantasy
as I open my eyes define reality
I'd have been better off inside my fantasy

I'm waiting for a one-way getaway
fast lane freeways running like a hurricane
you're looking for another road to sanity
insane can’t stay
better find a remedy
You’re telling me my luck won't fade
Hot hand, black jack, killing time, you can stay
I’m telling you you’re luck won’t fade
Hot hand, black jack, just in time to break the bank

Hear a voice like an angel from across the sea
drift into sleep see her singing to me
never sounded so sweet, always gone after we meet
open my eyes to find reality
I'd have been better off inside my fantasy
as I open my eyes define reality
I'd have been better off inside my fantasy

One more dance, one second chance
I'll make the move and you'll take my hand
I’ll seal the deal you'll make me proud
I'll tell the world when I take you out

Hear a voice like an angel from across the sea
drift into sleep see her singing to me
never sounded so sweet, always gone after we meet
open my eyes to find reality
I'd have been better off inside my fantasy
as I open my eyes define reality
I'd have been better off inside my fantasy
Track Name: Hoping To Believe (Ft. Jon Jinx)
Take these imperfections
And make me whole again
All my misconceptions
Used to be my only friend
Stop and count my blessings
Give me something I can feel
All I ever wanted
Was to know that love is real

I don’t claim to have the answers to
The reasons we deceive
Still I pose my questions
Hoping to believe

Why am I the only
One without a remedy
When everything is broken
Lies are free but don’t come cheap
As I ask forgiveness
Watch the night turn to the day
Wishing for a reason
Why my thoughts won’t fade away

I don’t claim to have the answers to
The reasons we deceive
Still I pose my questions
Hoping to believe

What’s your excuse for breathing?
I’m just dying to remain
After all my treasons
I know I shouldn’t complain

(Jinx)
I shouldn’t complain cuz I’m still tryin to get more
The world ahead makes me feel so dismal
I’m either sick or a scarred individual
The healing never stops cuz the pain is residual
I’m physically fine, mentally dying
I lyrically shine, permanently trying to define my
Reason for being, they want to deceive
I want to believe, but I don’t want to eat from that tree
No, I’m more like a warlock
Gore like a horror plot
Absorb your lies, no I can afford not
One thing is certain, death is a sure shot
Trying to shake the fakeness before the floor drops
Out from under me, that be lovely
Just to make it all stop when the blackness covers me
Why do everybody act like they can’t have love for me
But it end no coming back once the track is done for me
Cuz I’m just that way, I’m pissed ok
I don’t really wanna use my clip today
If I wish to stay I’d be ripped away
Don’t nobody care what I’ve got to say
But hopefully I can see
Something that’ll spark a change in me
Try to normalize the strange in me
I’m hoping to believe in me

I don’t claim to have the answers to
The reasons we deceive
Still I pose my questions
Hoping to believe

I don’t claim to have the answers to
The reasons we deceive
Still I pose my questions
Hoping to believe
Track Name: Pass On By
Don’t let them get the best of your love
Wait like the sun to rise high above
Trust in your faith to guide you on your way
Don’t ever let them all lead you astray

Slow down
The storms in your mind
Will leave you
Just give it some time
Be still now
This only lasts for a moment
Then it will pass on by
Then it will pass on by

Don’t let them take ahold of your pride
Wait for the moment when you will shine
Trust in yourself and never be afraid
Don’t ever let their words leave you at bay

Slow down
The storms in your mind
Will leave you
Just give it some time
Be still now
This only lasts for a moment
Then it will pass on by
Then it will pass on by
Track Name: Constellation
My love is brighter than the sun
She knows there’s nowhere left to run
I don’t expect to make her change
I hope she finds a reason to stay
Cuz we’re one and the same

What are you waiting for?
Don’t you know there’s a whole world to explore?
Why go back to before?
When you could have all you ask for and more

My heart is bigger than the sea
I tried to sweep her off of her feet
She swam away eventually
I hope her faith will set her free
Cuz it’s not up to me

What are you waiting for?
Don’t you know there’s a whole world to explore?
Why go back to before?
When you could have all you ask for and more

I can’t deny that she’s my higher elevation
If she were in the sky she’d be my own constellation
I can’t deny that she’s my higher elevation
If she were in the sky she’d be my own constellation

What are you waiting for?
Don’t you know there’s a whole world to explore?
Why go back to before?
When you could have all you ask for and more
Track Name: Peace of Mind
I’ve been waiting for sunshine to follow me
Out of the darkness where I always seem to be
Isolated with comfort in misery
I just don’t understand what it’s like to believe
I have always been caught in the in between
Sometimes it takes all my strength just to stop and breath

I’m alright with walking blind
Just give it some more time
All I want from this life
All the money can’t buy peace of mind

I’ve been looking for answers in symmetry
Just to find more than what lies in your sympathy
All I know is this world is a mystery
Why do I feel so alive when I fall and bleed
I have learned to pick myself up by my feet
Just to find love was there all along on my knees

I’m alright with walking blind
Just give it some more time
All I want from this life
All the money can’t buy peace of mind
Track Name: Break Me Down
I don’t believe you know what you desire
You need to hold the flame that sparks the fire
I don’t intend to be your remedy
I hope you find the one who holds the key

Break me down
Spin me round
Take me out
Tell me what it’s all about

I never meant to be your everything
You seem to keep me reeling by a string
I don’t intend to make you whole again
Nobody told me how the story ends

Break me down
Spin me round
Take me out
Tell me what it’s all about

Letting go
I’m losing control
You should know how it feels to be
Letting go
I’m losing control
You should know how it feels to be alone

Break me down
Spin me round
Take me out
Tell me what it’s all about
Track Name: Crossing (Ft. Jon Jinx)
I know what it’s like to be low
You don’t have to feel so alone
I know what it’s like to be down
You know how to bring me to the ground

And I have the best of intentions
Your desperation doesn’t pay
I know that you’ll still be lonely
After all the compliments fade

(Jinx)
You out there in the streets
Trying to compete with the sleuthers
Clubbing every night getting loose girl you’re ruthless
You’re probably gonna do it till you’re old ugly toothless
But I ain’t gonna hate on your ways cuz the truth is
I keep coming back cuz your head game’s ferocious
But you dangerous as dynamite you’re explosive
I’m on my grown man girl I’m doing what I’m supposed to
Messing with you is like riding a rollercoaster
Up and down, high and low, and hot n cold
N you refuse to let anybody stop the show
So I know you aint gonna listen
But I’ve got the best of intentions
The best is what you’re missing
Cuz you only want me when I’m moving the crowd
You’re so desperately thirsty, I’m proving it now

And I have the best of intentions
Your desperation doesn’t pay
I know that you’ll still be lonely
After all the compliments fade

You don’t se me
You don’t seem to even care
You don’t need me
You just need to know I’m there
You don’t se me
You don’t seem to even care
You don’t need me
You just need to know I’m there

I am not a part of your pyramid scheme
Cuz I don’t support causes with fucked up beliefs
You’re speaking to me, but it makes no sense
I’m just trying to tell you something to annihilate your ignorance

(Jinx)
I’m usually belligerent so I don’t care
About what the hell you’re doing when you’re way over there
But since you up in my face, I gotta put you in your place
If your life’s going to waste, you still lost in that maze

And I have the best of intentions
Your desperation doesn’t pay
I know that you’ll still be lonely
After all the compliments fade
Track Name: Out Of Sight
Swimming in a crowded mind
Tell me what you hope to find
Making plans to lead the blind
Time is never on your side

What do you have to say
When the day turns to night?
Where you gonna stay?
Somewhere outta sight

Living in an endless race
There’s no way of saving grace
We are not a hopeless case
We refuse to fade away

What do have to say
When the day turns to night?
Where you gonna stay?
Somewhere outta sight
