Track Name: Prison Practicality
I don't want to even try at all,
And it doesn't matter what you say.
Though I know it might be possible,
I know it won't happen anyway.

I'm having a dream. What does it mean, and why does it matter?
Does it help at all with the rise and fall of the visible matter?
I want to see what I want to be, but it won't happen with you and me.
So I'm gonna stay locked away in my Prison Practicality.

Why should I devote the energy?
Why do I even care?
Why start, even though my heart keeps telling me
That I don't have to fear?

I'm having a dream. What does it mean, and why does it matter?
Does it help at all with the rise and fall of the visible matter?
I want to see what I want to be, but it won't happen with you and me.
So I'm gonna stay locked away in my Prison Practicality.

How can I believe that I have everything that I need?

Stuck in a dream. What does it mean, and why does it matter?
Does it help at all with the rise and fall of the visible matter?
I want to see what I want to be, but it won't happen with you and me.
So I'm gonna stay locked away in my Prison Practicality.
Track Name: Something New
Where does my attention go when I arise?
And is it something that I can control?
If it is then which direction would I go?
Is there something here or am I going insane?

I think today I'll brush my teeth with my left hand,
And for a change I'll blast pop radio.
Maybe I remember how to climb a tree.
I cannot let that time I fell stand in my way.

Something New, than I knew, makes me Alive!
Track Name: Lights Out
Lights Out. Tell me what you feel.
Help me. Without light what is real?
Tell me what you feel.

Maybe if we turned off all the sound...
Silent, sanity is found.
Now take a look around.

What is the secret that I missed?
Could it be this is all there is?

I don't have the means
To save me for the end.

Know what you have.
Know what you do.
Know your own mind.
Know what you feel.
Know who you are.
I you will find.
Track Name: Always Creating
From the bottom to the top we never stop,
Cause we're always creating.

Habitat Southside urban
front steps Westbank birds chirping
8am practicing my wording on a rime
Hip Hop hustling my 9 to 5
emceeing all day ambition
my mission from the bottom we have risen
to top it off I put a cherry on my vision
I'm new school but I carry on tradition
Driving by women who smell like sunlight
on tour I got the Penny Lane love life
almost famous my favorite flick
broke rapper but the paper get
a bit better each year each year a bit better
More than lights on stage forever
not a lot of god giving talent
but I hustle hard when Hip Hop is the allowance.

From the bottom to the top we never stop,
Cause we're always creating.

I'm captain obvious, damn New can spit
Name drop accomplices, on it with Unicus
I hold an endless convo with Lucas Dix, But I never get higher than kicking it with Shoeless...kids
11:11 24/7 i.e. I feel the world is hearing my appeal
In the destructive wake blooms a win win deal
feel that?........
I've been cinched since birth with a target
creates a chance for one to work a pardon
you know, I know I gotta, work the hardship
a wise man told me scars are the signs of an artist watch people on the high road, looking for fool's gold stay happily trudging never lose hope
while disappointed Muggles chose woes
I stay grown, pulling weeds around the Root Note
Do what I can to separate from the horde
but elevate those who also want more
indescribable feeling joy explodes from the core
for every door shut in our face I spot another four.

From the bottom to the top we never stop,
Cause we're always creating.

Swapping tips with the freestyle lifers
Up the rope ladder to the treehouse cypher
Vibe to the thunderclaps, rain pools and the puddles splash
Got my needs in my gunny sack
Juxing fodder for thought out of the statements
Repping the ideas not prophets who claim them
Sanctum is a swimming hole, with a hook and line
Tied to my biggest toe, work it like a fishing pole
Yup yup, huckle-huckle berry finn finn
Tonguing cherry juice dripping off my chinny chin chin
Win-win sit(uation) as long as I do me
Younger than the sun, older than the cool breeze
(ok) I'ma build a bench to rest on
(all right) and string glass into a wind chime
(today) I'ma scribble out my next song
(tonight) we'll have a warm campfire to sing by.


Hey, let me take you through the creative process
Unlimited access just pop in my cassette
Duel-Deck player, original rhymesayer
Circa '89 in my room you will find
Bits and pieces of lyrics eventually
You will hear them in a song or two
Imitating the hottest crews.
Trying to find my own sound for people to get down
Headphones blastin', vibes everlasting
Forever innovating, relentlessly creating
Patterns like fashion helping to refuel my passion
I do this on the daily, ain't no sign of me stoppin
Kids is at the shows and their heads are steady bobbin'
To the sound that be coming out the speakers when reach ya
Stimulate my mental, check my words on instrumentals
Bodies motivated by the sound that we created
It's a Shoeless Revolution, it can never be faded

From the bottom to the top we never stop,
Cause we're always creating.
Track Name: Inside Out
To find the right way to say it all
Is always wanting more.
To try to make them understand
Will end up as before.

But if you want to try, I ask why?

I cannot wait for them to make
Make me feel like it is here.
Though they try to make me doubt,
I'm living from the inside out.

With everything surrounding me
intention gently leads.
And in the day, rediscovering
the end within the means.

It seems to shape what I see so effortlessly.

I cannot wait for them to make
Make me feel like it is here.
Though they try to make me doubt,
I'm living from the inside out.

There is no identity in what I see.

I cannot wait for them to make
Make me feel like it is here.
Though they try to make me doubt,
I'm living from the inside out.
Track Name: On the Run
I sit and watch three hands move.
They take me far away from here,
To a place that is not new,
Living on a subtle fear.

Could I ever try to take my time...
Take one step right now instead of five?

Here it is once again
With my shadow in control.
With heavy eyes I see it all
And what's to come is what I'll never know.

It happens all around me
Everyday I see it everywhere.
It's only A to B
what happens in between I'm not aware.

If I take a step back
I can relax into my own.
Then I look up,
out of luck, and all alone.

I'm on the run, I've never won.
That's the way it is and it can't be undone.

Here it is once again
With my shadow in control.
With heavy eyes I see it all
And what's to come is what I'll never know.

Oh it always seems
that there is something else I need to do,
something else I need to see.
Will I ever find the place where I've arrived?
The place where I can Be?

Oh it's just the same, as every day
Though I know there has to be another way

Here it is once again
With my shadow in control.
With heavy eyes I see it all
And what's to come is what I'll never know.
Track Name: Searchin'
I've been on a journey just like everyone I know
To find all the answers; discover the ways to grow.
Will I ever find them in something outside of me?
Perhaps the connection is holding the only key.

I've been searchin for something.
I've been searchin for something else.
I've been searchin for something.
I think I'm searching to...

I ask myself questions. The answers, I know they'll come
If I will allow them, and follow the only one.
It isn't religion, it isn't society.
Implied with division...where is the unity?

I've been searchin for something.
I've been searchin for something else.
I've been searchin for something.
I think I'm searching to find myself.
I've been searchin for something.
I've been searchin for something else.
I've been searchin for something.
I think I'm searching to find myself.

I never take the time to listen to my mind,
But when I do I find that it's not really who I am.

I never take the time to listen to my mind,
But when I do I find that it's alright to be right here.
Track Name: Mr. Superstellar
Don't you know my name?
I am Mr. Superstellar from space.
The sun can't feel the rain
So I bring her water everyday.

Cause she's burning burning burning burning away
While the planets spin around her out in outer space.
She never gets to play 'cause she works all day
I like to go and visit 'cause I feel her pain.

Burning burning burning away
While the planets spin around her out in outer space
She's always stuck at work and never gets a break.
That's why I go and visit every single day.

I am Mr. Superstellar from space.
The sun can't feel the rain
So I bring her water everyday.

Cause she's burning burning burning burning away
While the planets spin around her out in outer space.
She never gets to play 'cause she works all day
I like to go and visit 'cause I feel her pain.

Burning burning burning away
While the planets spin around her out in outer space
She says our little visits are what keep her sane,
And she'll never have her freedom from the ball and chain.

Don't you know my name?
I am Mr. Superstellar from space.
Don't you know my name?
I am Mr. Superstellar from space.
Don't you know my name?
I am Mr. Superstellar from space.
Don't you know my name?
I am Mr. Superstellar from space.
