    As I put together this album, there were pieces of paper I used to sketch ideas, determine track names, etc. There are three such pages and thus there are three such CDs. If you'd like me to autograph said page, let me know on the purchase notes.

about

When the man I am tries to forget the lies told me as a child.

lyrics

Raise your voice, they’ll amplify it if it suits their needs
Hatred poised, damned with silence in a gruesome breeze
Traced with droids every movement tracked and closely measured
Too busy drowning to speak indeed they hope we never
Head of the trophy severed placed upon the mantel well
Give the guise of guidance justify the chance to sell
We must abide, supplying Ls in the form of payments
…Automated clientele installment fortune cadence
Cookie cutters stay sharp with the filth provided
Bravehearts emasculated for the silver lining
A hill divided, I still will climb it until I’m tired
People making faces just to get their grills admired
Gift horses with a stilted neigh parade for photo ops
The older cough above a platter stacked with stroganoff
No bogota but still the flow is potent, dope and raw
The Kofa law triplicate ripping it so the folks applaud

The contrarian, turn an open mic into a closed casket
fighting with the night, I’ll never go passive
so graphic the language that’s is frying your cards
1000 words per syllable Orion to Mars

Downtime is just a chance for me rebuild
Strategize on this and that with rap and seek chill
Getting away is easier said than done with
Empty moment, I’ve got to fill it with the drum’s kick
Serpents travel forked roads with their tongues split
Gulping every opportunity, not one sip
And once it comes,well, I’m running it dry
But it never stops refilling with abundant supplies
my cloud storage contains nothing but brainstorms.
so clowns forfeit before their faces can take form
It sounds morbid but I warn, the craft is serious.
Half Siberian cafeteria slapped imperious.
I pass the period with two dots so here he is.
Life sentences immortalized despite my weariness.
Or gear that he appears within in the pyramids cheering him.
…spearing half the theories unraveling then the tears begin

Dollars Reign Supreme Over Nearly Every Lobby
Got a dollop of that CREAM for the molotov and coffee
Hauling off to hockey punch the clock until it never ticks again
Kick the habit nun in soccer practice back to rip the blend
Sick defense, up the anti bodies, got me dipping friend
My drip is zen, need no components zone to this and bend
Hit the pen, without a state of mind behind the bars to grip
My parliament without a parlor trick, provide it marvelous
Why the garbage is regarded as the heart of this
The vibes that martyrs miss, find my frame of mind is darkening
Embark on trips, evasive replacement tasting the sample given
Forget the guardedness, I try to take the plan and live it
Won’t violate the ways that I was raised upon with rap
Kool G Rap the family tree roots that made the almanac
Bomb the track, megatron Obama slapping trauma stats
Just my dope friends and me, no entourage with pomp it’s wack
