Track Name: Free
I wanna tell every person I see how I feel today
I'm steppin out again for the first time
I feel my knees lift me on up, and outta dismay
I feel my tongue turn prose to rhyme

Locked away, ball and chain, by a man who looks the same
But it's me who came not him, he's gone away
What was once opaque is now illuminated, was adrift has now found shore
I've been livin in a prison that's been limitin my vision of myself, but not no more

Why can't we see
How easy
It is to be free

I've been missin’ what it is that gets us out of bed
I've been swimming circles in this swamp that occupy my head
You looked into my crying eyes, and a human you did see
Turns out what I was looking for the whole time was looking right at me

Why can't we see
How easy
It is to be free
Track Name: Love So Fierce
Head down and I'm runnin
Rat town where she told me not to go
Boy they can see you comin
When the street lights on, you best be back with your own
Bustin out across the pavement tonight I gotta
Sweat it out, run out the fight
I lock eyes with a young man
Lookin so hungry, suddenly right on me
I've never seen a gun up close
And now I'm staring at the trigger and the finger that holds
My life an inch away
Will I ever see another day

I gotta love so fierce I can penetrate the hate
Gotta love so fierce
Gotta love so fierce I can penetrate the hate
Cause I'm right here, no fear, surrounded by a world I can't fall out of.

Hard gravel, cutting my knees
As I kneel down, saying "Please, please, please"
My heart slows, my mind is clear
I feel the wind on my face, and I feel no fear
As our eyes embrace, I hear myself singing

I gotta love so fierce I can penetrate the hate
Gotta love so fierce
Gotta love so fierce I can penetrate the hate
Cause I'm right here, no fear, surrounded by a world I can't fall out of.

You know it may sound funny
But I can see the sky for the first time today
The air cools the sweat on my back
I hear the train coming, from so far away

Time can move so slow sometimes
Letting some light to shine on who we really are

Time can move so slow sometimes
Letting some light to shine on who we really are

I gotta love so fierce I can penetrate the hate
Gotta love so fierce
Gotta love so fierce I can penetrate the hate
Cause I'm right here, no fear, surrounded by a world I can't fall out of.
Track Name: Reservoir
Here I am, today feels the same as yesterday
I need to say, I feel an emptiness inside and it won’t go way
As I look into your eyes I hope you empathize what’s going on inside won’t leave me alone
You see I’ve grown and I’m so much deeper then I’ve ever known

I see you standing at my shore
Don’t know if I can wait much more
Let me open up and carry you
Into my reservoir

Here I am, follow me down, under the bridge of echoes
Please hold my hand, I swear I won’t let go
Take off your shoes, down by the river, an angel wading in the water
Is this some sign from my father?
'Cause you’re that angel I’ve been seeing, mama

I see you standing at my shore
Don’t know if I can wait much more
Let me open up and carry you
Into my reservoir

I’m holding you close, and I won’t let go
The devil inside he don’t want me to know that the
Falling is easy but landing it hurts and
Seeing you hate me would be hell at its worst

The air is saturated and my thoughts they all take flight
Electric hearts are everywhere reflecting back the light
I see myself more clearly than in the looking glass
The river runs through my reflection connected to the past
Connected to the ocean down to the darkest deeds I’ve done
Up to the waves that break and foam and glisten in the sun
I see you standing at my shore
Don’t know if I can wait much more
Let me open up and carry you
Into my reservoir
Track Name: Hard Times (all the rain)
Kids crowd around the radio
Snowflakes dance in the morning rays
Pray for no school so they can go and play

I stare at the kitchen table
Bills to pay
Pray I can get to work today

All the rain, and the sun don’t feel the same
Seems hope just ain’t a friend I can depend on these days
I wanna lose faith, but I know you feel the same
The pain binds us together, we won’t get through this weather alone

I don’t know how I got here
I don’t know when things got so wrong
I been under water for so long

Got $200 bucks for the ring babe
Who should we pay?
Whoever leans hardest on me today

All the rain, and the sun don’t feel the same
Seems hope just ain’t a friend I can depend on these days
I wanna lose faith, but I know you feel the same
The pain binds us together, we won’t get through this weather alone

All the rain

You got your flat screen plasma
Your 401 k
Don’t you come cryin to me today

I’ve been on hold for days now
The end of the line
These goddamn people, they just don’t get hard times

All the rain, and the sun don’t feel the same
Seems hope just ain’t a friend I can depend on these days
I wanna lose faith, but I know you feel the same
The pain binds us together, we won’t get through this weather alone

All the rain
Track Name: Fear Is the Weapon (fear them not) [feat J-O and Gab Guma of Grindcity]
Fear is the weapon
The only one they got
But that don't mean nothing
If we fear them not

She's always been known to speak up
Some say out of turn
She don't mind too much getting burned

He command his kingdom
As the masses sight their seats
She walk in, he feel his knees get weak

Fear is the weapon
The only one they got
But that don't mean nothing
If we fear them not

He unveils his plans
She say how can you dare
The masses turn their heads and stare

He say you should be more careful
Of what you say and do
Speak again, I will banish you

Fear is the weapon
The only one they got
But that don't mean nothing
If we fear them not

[J-O's verse]

Fear is the weapon, the one they got
That means nothing if we fear them not.

Long time ago history with Romans,
Jews, Muslims, Christians Unhappy
Politicians and Government Entropy
they say Thee people, Enslave We the people
lack of order decline dramatically,
deprive our youth and Women psychologically

from the root of a Tree, I'm just a falling leaf
Our World Branches is giving us mad grief
I bow out to Muscle hustle the truth
to speak only to you, I turned into a troop
AND
Same script you already know, They Convincing you
The same Route, the same go, Same M-O
Social Media World of fear Freak Show

Turning Cowards You Cowards out of my people
Hustle us Lethal, Hide and call it Legal
So turn from ya FEARS aim for the stars
Be brave and all to win them all

Fear is the weapon
The only one they got
But that don't mean nothing
If we fear them not
