Sink 03:25
I'll sink before you do Just enough to push me over but not enough to drown I figured all my hesitation would someday let you down So lukewarm with my intentions Sometimes I pray you spit me out I wish that I could love you Lord But I'm afraid I wear the crown And I'll sink before you do I'm heavy in the water It seems I'm constantly askew But dethrone me again And I will follow you I'll sink before you do

Will we ever cross that line? Will we ever make it to the other side? Shit I don’t know but I hope I hope you driving while you rollin’ the dope I hope the traffic ain’t bad and you make it just in time for the smoke I hope your mama ain’t trippin’ by the time you get home I hope I cross into the superstar status that I wanted I hope it ain’t annoying. I do this for enjoyment I hope you know I coined the phrase “tick tick tick” ‘Cause time movin too quick and I been on my shit I’m 21 going on 36. i’m still running ‘round smokin in some dirty kicks I was young when I first seen that dirty mix Just trying to spit like Doom and be cool like kids Other kids didn’t get it, and they still don’t. On a plane cross the globe with my phone finna roam Pay the fee, cross the line my whole life is a toll Get a job, never did. Get some friends, get a goal. Will we ever cross that line? Will we ever make it to the other side? The ref throw his hands up and we did it And now it’s time to pay Disney a visit Remember back when I would watch Cow and Chicken I always had adults around me but no one ever mentioned This life nuts and if you give up then life sucks Just get hella bucks with your friends, you type won Half hard work and half is light luck Don’t do nothin stupid, that path is striped up Lost some friends and my pops for a second but he back Now he sip henn with me, might hop on the track Down Dudley get a sub, get a bus, get a cab Give a fiend a couple bills to get some food but it’s for crack Shit whatever, it’s never-ending, but it’ll get better My mom had it way worse, times cold as December Take the Advil for the pain and the weed for the stress On the edge of the earth, this the line, take a step Will we ever cross that line? Will we ever make it to the other side? Will we ever cross that line? Will we ever make it to the other side?

They say “In Heaven, everything is fine.” But I’ve sang Hallelujah, and it never worked out right. There’s no place for me. Why am I so death obsessed if I’m afraid of nothingness? Everything’s fine all the time, I just like to complain. There’s no place for me

Skydiver 03:41
Dressed to kill on Lavender Hill You said I’d be the one you’re with. You said you had always wanted someone to be your Patti Smith You really took me too high You really put me on a pedestal I told you I can't fly I'm survivor, a skydiver. I looked you in the eye, I looked you in the eye. Here’s to gravity…do you remember me? It could have been anyone flying too close to the sun. I explained to my body today That we would be moving though I get everything that you've done My Momma she beat me too. You really took me too high You really put me on a pedestal I told you I can't fly I'm survivor, a skydiver. I looked you in the eye, I looked you in the eye. Now looking back I'm happy that It could have been anyone Flying too close to the sun. You really took me too high You really put me on a pedestal I told you I can't fly It could have been anyone Flying too close to the sun

Good 03:08
Razor blades in lip, 9 mili in the whip Money, power, respect — I been told this is as good as gets Gold is how we measure success Pops left, mama wept, friends died Our destruction is our genocide This is for my people still alive, my block is big is enterprise Convicts must not apply to that job…they’re surprised that I rob. Treat me like animal, I refuse to pray to their God I come from a king and queen but they treat me like I do not Guns go pop pop pop, pharmacy is in my pocket They ain't leaving me many options, call each other n___z often One American pie…I'm just arguing the portions and of course who the source is of all the lies If we teach our young hatred vaporize and in their eyes we will shine, like kings of old The crown will glow. Everything remains gold. We all good. (Long as the drugs keep coming) (Long as the money keep coming) (Long as the guns keep coming) Kilograms change hands on my corner Ladies on my controlla, pockets that's full of boulders The soldiers were sipping saki, numb do to exposure Gun holders a chip heavy on my shoulder These shackles how the hold us back and while hell’s upon us Our family member goners, locked up behind the bars Others are in a box putting me and mine in mourning Our fathers don't even want ‘em, mom is more like a warden The dollars are more important, according to sources we failed. We got kids in jail, we did not excel, she did not get bail Weight is on the scale gotta make a sale Gotta feed my babies teach them to prevail Smoke my pain, inhale… Then it’s razor blades in lip, 9 mili in the whip Money, power, respect — I been told this is as good as gets Gold is how we measure success Pops left, mama wept, friends died We all good. (Long as the drugs keep coming) (Long as the money keep coming) (Long as the guns keep coming)

Casablanca 03:29
Lost my heart Can we stop on the way? Any one will do As long as I won’t feel the same. So what’s the cost of feeling closed off? Now I’ll see Oh no, I’m too late It’s way past seven or eight I guess that’s too long to wait Lost in thoughts That twist and rot When I hear your name If that’s the cost of feeling closed off I have myself to blame So now I’ll see what happens to me If you let me be. Oh no, I’m too late It’s way past seven or eight. Is it too long to wait? I know it’s too long to wait. I know it’s too long to wait.

Keep the last light on Maybe he'll come home soon He had such bravado Now he's sustained by a tube Such a masculine model One for God to rip through Mourning the loss of someone who's still there Or that's what you want to know: If he's just changed shapes or lives in the air And if he's okay It's a tough act to follow Trying to gracefully lose Mourning the loss of someone who's still there Or that's what you want to know: If he's just changed shapes or lives in the air And if he's okay Keep the last light on

Sugary 02:35
I wait for the movies to come to me on DVD So I can watch ‘em at home on my couch Zoning out on something else Cause you made me feel wonderful You made me feel wonderful Now there’s not much left at all Can’t wait for the day to come When you get numb from all your fun And I will be at home on my couch Making out with someone else Cause you made me feel sugary You made me feel sugary Now there’s nothing left to see I wait for the movies to come to me on DVD I wait for the movies to come to me Mastered by Jonathan Wyner at M-Works, Cambridge, MA

A whitewashed perspective A spike in their brain The thought of acceptance Drives them insane The silent majority They’re tried and they’re true In the dark they will beat you Red white and blue Repeating history Second the guess To deny science is to Welcome our deaths Mosquitoes persistence Towards assembling a choir To sing about dangers And topics so dire

I've been waiting around Hoping things might have changed Since our last time around But now it's getting late. It's always somethin' with you You show up late, I miss you I'm tired of fighting with you I know I gotta quit you I'm 'bout to lose my mind I've called a thousand times I always wonder why I've got to hurry up and wait for you. It's always somethin' with you You show up late, I miss you I hate to break it to you Honey, you just lost your chance I'm 'bout to lose my mind I've called a thousand times I always wonder why I've got to hurry up and wait for you Call you up and no one's home I'm just sittin' by the telephone Come on honey, let it ring It's the last time you're gonna hear me sing I'm 'bout to lose my mind I've called a thousand times I always wonder why I've got to hurry up and wait for you.

Alone Time 03:36
Recorded by Alex Allinson at The Record Company Mixed by Alex Allinson at The Bridge Sound & Stage I know how it feels to lose a pocket full of dough On a truck part ya never thought you'd need But i don't know how it feels to have a mouth to feed While going to work and wanting time alone Cause when I get home, I get high as I can Pray to god I don’t wake up for work again There’s nothing quite like being alone After a long day when you get home A long day don't end right without some time alone After work went an sucked the soul right out of me Trouble is we all gotta spend some time together Ya can’t get time off by going alone Problem is we need to get together organized If we want FREE TIME to have alone I’m doing alright now, but should I ​have a child Daycare and pampers would wipe me out I got enough for now, but should I cradle a babe How could i afford some time alone? Without placing all that burden on my partner Without working so many hours I lose all hope Without loosing so much sleep I start seeing things Without turning into a fiend for booze and dope There’s nothing quite like being alone After a long day when you get home Trouble is we need to spend some time together If we want some free time to have alone Problem is we need to get together and fight If we going to FIGHT BACK for time alone I know how it feels to lose a pocket full of dough On a operation ya never thought you'd need But I don't know how it feels to have a mouth to feed While going to work… Gimme one godamm minute to myself. Cause when I get home, I get high as I can I pray to god I don’t wake up for work again.

These Hands 05:50
I see a man in the alley Hood hiding heaps of grief These supple hands are trembling Coat tails pass in the breeze I smell the fear in the alley Hood hiding heirlooms of class These tired hands are steady My fate is tied to the mast Every time I see you I am not myself I am acting, smiling I'm not one of them Will I teach my children how horrendous it feels To draw the line between skins I hear my name in the alley Shouts flicker morse with the lights Shots fire for no reason Ghosts with their palms open wide Every time I see you I am not myself I am acting, smiling I'm not one of them Will I teach my children how horrendous it feels To draw the line between skins I drop a dime in the alley Glimmers to bring him the news These steady hands are trying Though they've done nothing for you
