about

This is a concept album titled Mythology, and it best represents the complex influences of our sound and delivery. The project chronicles a pseudo-allegorical tale of tyranny and revolution, independence and community, and the holistic advancement of the common person and the entire human race.

Track Name: 02 The Advent
Back ten millennia, before the fall of man
Before the hordes of the tyrant god advanced
Was a revolution, a mighty rebellion
Seeking evolution with the symbol of Triskelion

The system felt threatened; advancement's embedded
In our spirits, so their method - shred up our soul's essence,
Bound to a meteor, time and space ripped us apart
Til we were hardly more than beating hearts

Stuck in oblivion until we encounter the monks who represent
The Order of Vikaas -- progressive development
Lanterns flickered in the distance,
Hooded forms approach and provide assistance
To their cave to a crystal altar where they laid us
And they began to chant a mantra meditating
We are almost dead, hanging on by a thread of energy,
Until we hear the Om and feel a burst of heat
Oxygen returns I can finally breathe, relief
Blood pumps to each extremity
Now I'm in agony, I think they call it gravity.
Dimension so heavy, acclimation distressing
Monks cleanse our lenses, heal our bodies,
Tame our senses, train our psychic defenses
Adaptation complete, we have arrived
Consciousness returned, our spirits revived!


Our strength has returned, our rest was a blur
Vitality's rising it's time to emerge
From the cave to the light as in Plato's allegory,
A crowd has gathered round to listen to the story
They were downtrodden but hopeful yet
So we asked people what they had grown to expect
We were not the first of our kin to arrive,
More came before us, dark agenda in mind
On a mission to enslave the people of earth.
Like they have for ages through the deep multiverse
Strategically weakening bodies and minds
Tempering hearts, spirits of humankind
But the monks prophesied rebels from the skies
Would rally resistance bringin the underground to life
And the fact is we're gaining traction,
Empowering the masses to liberating actions
Track Name: 04 Reincarnation
At first I was a dragon as huge and bad as you can imagine
Breathin fire from the sky, my very existence proof of magic
A sneaky hunter invaded my cave while I was napping
Truly a savage, opened the armor guarding my heart, ran it through with a javelin

Began my journey on earth perched on a branch in the forest
Tweeting my song til I turned to bones and those
Became four paws on the ground, whiskers coalesced to a trunk
I trumpeted and I stomped my own path through the grass until my last

The hungry clumsy giant, inspired stories of Samson
Eatin honey outta carcasses fighting with a jawbone in my hand and
Then I was shaved and blinded, shackled in irons, enslaved and branded
Then I tripped and fell through their temple beams and on their heads it landed

Wife of an Iceni king, the Romans they took everything
When he died they raped our three daughters right in front of my eyes
But only after they beat me, left me bleeding
So I took my only recourse, and led the troops in revolt

It's time for you to awaken, sliding through time and space as we fly through imagination
It's the method of operation of life and death's yin and yang and they call it reincarnation
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning, keeps turning now

My music tamed the wildest beasts,
But I didn't do it for the fame, my wife was deceased
So I defied the gods and fought through Hades put that hell hound to sleep, brought her back with me
But when I turned around she was an apparition - simple deific trickery!

Mama cursed me, babies died, I'm certain If I sacrifice three other guys,
My favorite son's life will be spared; fortune teller, I shared visions of
Hope with sinful folk to gullible to know,
I'ma cook their fat into soap, and tea cakes is where the blood goes yeah

I'm Nat Turner - chains break; the slave's loose. We've paid dues
Hack the plantation owner's face through like a grapefruit that sprays juice
And hence forth, let's get more pitchforks
Lit torches and show em what we pissed for!

Writer, an author; I will Thoreau-ly Pond-er Walden
'n' all of nature beyond and document my responses.
Grandeur Expansive, I'm plantin' seeds and I watch 'em grow
ebb n flow; connected to the rhythm; civilly disobedient is how I'm livin

It's time for you to awaken, sliding through time and space as we fly through imagination
It's the method of operation of life and death's yin and yang and they call it reincarnation
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning, keeps turning now

Flying high as you can see - the mighty reptilian
But he's strong lazy and stingy and his pride ended up killin him

Primal instinct, all the knowledge I need I got in me
Access to a higher wisdom, networked to infinity

Passion fulfills, but unchecked lust savagely kills
When I won't listen to enough wisdom to outbalance my will

If I can't live free I'd rather die, right now
I will never cower to powers over me, I'll lead the mutiny!

Hear the echoes of my love when I make the music of the spheres
Defying judgment from above, cause it ain't no jury of my peers

Use my ax to chop them up, boiled fat, I drained blood
Cleaned it up all neat - and that soprano was so sweet!

My revolt will resurrect quickly and manifest differently
Next time I'm taking way more than 60 slave owners with me!

Expeditions to nearby regions; I witness legions of heathens
Passin' season of evenin's doin' hardly more than breathin'!

It's time for you to awaken, sliding through time and space as we fly through imagination
It's the method of operation of life and death's yin and yang and they call it reincarnation
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning, keeps turning now
Track Name: 05 Funkadelic
1-2-3-4...
Hat brim low yeah I know where I'm going now
Yeah life's a circus and I'm the best show in town
Ring master, mic blaster, no sign of slowing down
Cancelled shows, losing dough - at time's I's more like the clown
But that's a rap now, it's in the past now
Confusion and uncertainty, energy just not serving me
Assaulting people verbally - Tigress!
With the fire inside of nine lives, used five to find this
State of tranquility, lyrical ability
Physical agility and I just feel like killing beats
Deshaun mode, I'm unstoppable
Achieved goals, stole shows - got lots to go
Past is my ladder, climbed here to rap master
Adept emcee, songstress and stage smasher
Cage blaster, decipher lines, free your mind
Escape faster with this yoga rapster
I'm a commodity, ain't nobody hot as me
Just dollar signs to you fools, so you don't get no part of me
Pardon me, if it's hard to see
Why I won't let go of my artistry
I make music start to finish, no industry interventions
Mob orchestrates, grab my pen I get to diggin the rhythm
I can't hold still for a minute, reminds me why I got in it
To see my friends and fans grinnin - Love to see y'all grinnin man

Beat make me wanna dance and sing
Bob my head and tap my feet
Clap my hands and start to swing (hey)
Music is life so I dance to the melody

Kinda funny how in my last verse
I say "past is past", but yo the past hurts
Something tugging at my mind as I write these words
To convince myself I'll make it, at times I'm not sure
Live like The Fool - will I ever mature?
Some of it's still a blur, but I've learned - Strength, Endurance,
Open body and mind, let my soul shine
Realize that I've more power than delicate flowers: bloom and die
Fragile, and dependent elements are just right
Like the oak grove, I grow slow, stand tests of time.
Expanding only after roots are planted
No magic no gimmicks simply hard work learned from country livin
I'm in it to win it, plans got my head spinnin
Like Eps for Murs, on the business side of things
Words lash from my lips like whips they burn and sting.
I'm molting, evolving - whatever you wanna call it
KriStyle 2.0. Old soul;
Took the heat now I'm cold - I know that I'm coal
Refining real slow, Upward spiral flow
Look back blow kisses to the past then roll
Like no worries,
My biggest hurdle is me. Hop off stage like
Girls please - Step up your intellect
Rhyme and laugh, shake that ass til there's no more music left!

Beat make me wanna dance and sing
Bob my head and tap my feet
Clap my hands and start to swing
Music is life so I dance to the melody

Ready to burst
Kissing the edge
Bring on the challenges
I am the Architect
Track Name: 07 This Is The One
The time has come to seek a change within
The word is out - you'll sink if you don't swim
The truth is now - all other things are lies
You have the pow'r to bring the beast to life

And move - betta let me see ya move
betta let me see ya - betta let me see ya move...

I came here ready for war!
I came here ready for the vict'ry beyond
Show me a challenge that I cannot endure and I'ma laugh at ya
Any opponent I see better be raw
Ready to meddle with a hell of a god - I be the blast master
The battle combatant matter of fact, for that matter
I work harder, rap badder and scrap faster
I be the one, the beast who freely runs
To lead the hunt so we can feast til kingdom come
Wouldn't you like to know the hunger of a soul
That never rests til it meets its goal?
Your time is now; seize it somehow
Tighten your grip down - and don't let it go!

This is the one - the only one
This moment now is true!
The past is gone - tomorrow's sun
May never dawn for you!

Put the work in!
If you ain't willing then it really ain't worth it - go sit in the pew of a church and
Pray for a god who will do what you won't do for you
Just sit back and he'll make your life perfect - it ain't workin
No it ain't gonna be okay!
You gotta go through the heat of pain - then you ask for more
Ain't no shortcut to speed or strength
Blood sweat and tears will free your chains - and that's for sure!
I feel the vibe the pulse of life
The wave it rises and it falls
It goes so fast, it will not last
Don't let it pass - give it your all!

This is the one - the only one
This moment now is true!
The past is gone - tomorrow's sun
May never dawn for you!

Move - betta let me see ya move -
betta let me see ya - betta let me see ya move!

Awake with the rising sun, the rising sun
This moment, this is the one, the one
We mountains in this valley and we cower to none
Rivers race, crown to base, of adrenaline-laced blood
Foundation strong
Pacing for this marathon - when that moment comes
When the time is now, will I retreat, stand my ground?
Or attack with a bow? Facing my opponent gracefully!
Carpe Punctum! Seize the moment; now's the place to be
And in case of emergency
My first reaction's to lead, head of the class - all aspects
Starting five - I sport the Captain's badge
I'm calling the plays
I say it's time for a change
One that starts at the base
And then I'm trouble all the way
Yo, may seem I start slow
Backwards planning phase - I'll pick up pace
Laying low while I plot and scheme, dot I's and cross T's
So when the time comes to unleash
And I feel the endorphins morphin me
Into some sorta beast, and I'm sorta pleased
I hear these words, on repeat:
"FUCK FEAR OF DEFEAT! FUCK FEAR OF DEFEAT!"

This is the one - the only one
This moment now is true!
The past is gone - tomorrow's sun
May never dawn for you!
I feel the vibe the pulse of life
The wave it rises and it falls
It goes so fast, it will not last
Don't let it pass - give it your all!
Track Name: 09 Alice
I touch down, shaking my head around to clear it up
My wings broken, I no longer fly
Glancing around and I've found that I'm stuck
And I'm caught in a world that can't satisfy
It's tragically plastic; I'll wrap it and pack it up
Send it to the hell from whence it came
Cause it's my soul's hit man and assassinator
And so I'll bathe this world in flames

I'm desperately in need of the real
Sick of clouds I can't see through
Since I landed here I feel
I can't settle for your truth
Now I see this world revealed
Now my Third Eye's open wide
As I search for something real
Something real that lives inside

See there's a peculiar place and it's called the earth
It's the world we're all forced to live in
And to the grave all the way from birth
We are told that everything is genuine
A lie to make fools of you and take you
Eventually out
I don't buy into the lies, that's easy to see
But tell me - what is this life about?

I'm desperately in need of the real
Sick of clouds I can't see through
Since I landed here I feel
I can't settle for your truth
Now I see this world revealed
Now my Third Eye's open wide
As I search for something real
Something real that lives inside

This crazy world is full of crazy things
We can't help but come along for the ride
Alice, this rabbit hole just went too deep
I think it's time to open up our eyes
All of the things in this life you see
Are illusions that'll trick your mind
Nothing in this world is real except
For the things that live inside

Nothing's real but what's inside, I wanna bring it to life
Beyond duality is where I reside
Like you, I awoke choke and broken by lies
Feelin abandoned when I landed unaware of how I arrived
Or if I planned it. I can't stand it when conformity's demanded
Slow monotony of 3D is rotting me completely
Wings have turned to dust, predatory senses faded I must
Be a part of some nightmare
Wake me up shake me up
Strong and powerful like elephant
With mind control of elements, pure eloquence plus elegance
But don't know where the hell it went - energy is stifled here
I struggle to survive it here. Defiant, non-compliant
Self-reliant - been tryin to open up, give trust
Accept love, it's star dust in my blood
With the universe I'm one, one, one!
Don't walk with Alice down that rabbit hole I fucking run!

I'm desperately in need of the real
Sick of clouds I can't see through
Since I landed here I feel
I can't settle for your truth
Now I see this world revealed
Now my Third Eye's open wide
As I search for something real
Something real that lives inside

This crazy world full of crazy things
We can't help but come along for the ride
Alice, this rabbit hole just went too deep
I think it's time to open up our eyes
All of the things in this life you see
Are just illusions that'll trick your mind
Nothing in this world is real except
For the things that live inside
This crazy world is full of crazy things
We can't help but come along for the ride
Alice, this rabbit hole just went too deep
I think it's time to open up our eyes
IT'S TIME TO OPEN UP OUR EYES!!!
Track Name: 10 Slowdown
Some say that I ain't got a slow jam up on my list
They wantin to hear me spit a little R&B
Others say that a nigga really gotta be hard every time he spit
With the guns and diamond rings, no time for softer things
But I call myself a connoisseur of true music
And so sometimes I think a brother really gotta sing
So I do what I do and you fuckin haters can't say shit
Cause you can't do it like me, I make it beautiful and free
Sometimes these things I'm trying to say
Are to real, hard vibes get in the way...

So I gotta make it slow down I'ma make my music throw down
Y'all sit back and wait and see
Listen as I slow down I'ma get you dancin slow now
Grab your partner follow me
Slow it down...

I think it's crazy how this game can make you trip
One second you alright, the next you wanna fight
Emcees promoters self entitled talkin shit
Your breathin gets all tight, you wanna end their goddamn lives
Ain't tryin to start a problem, that's just how you really feel
Ain't tryin to get all buck, that's just the way you see it
Tryin to keep your mouth shut when you know they ain't for real
Cause that fakeness ain't enough - you wanna throttle them and repeat it!
Just breathe. Just be. Just meditate.
Those things don't matter anyway...

So I gotta make it slow down I'ma make my music throw down
Y'all sit back and wait and see
Listen as I slow down I'ma get you dancin slow now
Grab your partner follow me

You thinkin I'ma bringin it hard. But right in the middle of it I switch it, change it
Every way I'm rippin it is raw. I can sing it and you still would know a nigga's dangerous
It's amazing what a tune can do, it'll get you feelin high until you can't move
Until your eyes lookin like Fu Manchu, until even a hard nigga can be smooth and cool
If you're single and you're feeling lonely; if you in love and you dancing closely
Everyone knows that even if it's only once in a while, you gotta bring it slowly
Sometimes that's hard to do. But instead of going round
With a hopeless frown, just smoke a pound and slow it down, down, down...

So I gotta make it slow down I'ma make my music throw down
Y'all sit back and wait and see
Listen as I slow down I'ma get you dancin slow now
Grab your partner follow me
Watch me as I, I slow down I'ma make my music throw down
Y'all sit back and wait and see
Listen as I slow down I'ma get you dancin slow now
Grab your partner follow me
Slow it down...
Track Name: 11 All I Know
I don't know much about the future or past
You'd think I do but alas, history's written by bigoted hands
Don't really know if what I do's good or bad
Or really who should I ask, so I'm just living the best that I can
And that's the thing about believing in free choice
You realize control over your life's where it really belongs
But it's so easy just to make up a Deep Voice,
And say It calls the shots and now all my responsibility's gone.
But the truth is that my fate is my own, I'm taking control
I ain't no baby make it be known
I gotta build my life to reach my potential, plain and simple
Ain't no victim in my mental no matter the things I been through
Spiritual music for this revolution
A miracle movement, your life you can choose it
They may say we're crazy but they don't know do they?
We're here and that's all we know baby

All I know is that nothing is for sure
I won't stop and I won't drop - I'ma make it to the top
And I don't know why, I don't know how
All I know is I'm here now, and can't nothing bring me down
That's all I know

All I know changes on a daily basis, what more can I say?
It's like my brain's panning for gold in this information age
Cause I'm a student of life - most of what I learned as a child
I discovered as I grew was a lie
Finally opened my eyes, read, heard, observed, and realized
I don't wanna disguise my true Identity, pretend to be
Polished when I'm raw, or comfortable when I'm not
I'm like arachnid - always spinnin webs with effervescent thoughts
Whether accepted or not, that web connects us, threads surround and embed us
More I struggle against, the more tangled I get in it
So one love is the message as I weave I'm extended
To all my diamonds in the rough, multifaceted and flawed
Heard you were searching for God - well you can stop
It was with you all along, Consciousness or Soul, that Voice they call
Holy Spirit actually is intuition, don't pretend that
You can't hear it, pay attention, you're creating what you envision

All I know is that nothing is for sure
I won't stop and I won't drop - I'ma make it to the top
And I don't know why, I don't know how
All I know is I'm here now, and can't nothing bring me down
That's all I know
Track Name: 13 Eager To Live
I never been the one to have a leaky eye
You're never going to see me cry or let a little weakness fly
Indeed not I - unemotional, invulnerable
I never I never thought I'd bleed or die
But in recent times my keenest mind
Has begun to realize feelings rising
Deep inside a leech is hiding
With the speech of a singing rhyme

I've always been a part of you but the darker view
Was easier to embrace, easier to replace
Feeling helpless with anger,
Close the doors and stand guard.

But I was comfortable with a broken soul
Then you had to go make me functional
Sociable - never wanted to give a shit
Now my heart's so big my torso explodes
It was safer when I hated everyone in humanity
I was shielded, never yielded, and nobody could damage me
Now I'm broken open and emotional, with no control
Enough to drive a man to insanity

Finally decide to recognize, don't try to hide
My incessant beating is keeping you alive !
You locked me inside, think you're protecting me?
You're wrecking me !
Just set me free and let me be

What's going on? Where did this heart come from?
I didn't know I could be so eager to live!

No Age of Innocence do I remember
Always suspecting myself in danger
Sleuthing for clues Nancy Drew at all times
Suspicious, someone's out to get me.
Why am I always ready for a fight?
Scarred dark heart with no love inside
Every white lie stokes my fire.
Never trust again - knew I was right

Never wanted to soften, too often opted to stifle me
But even the hardest tree can topple in the wild breeze
In a storm so terrible being flexible is a mighty thing
When you don't know, I believe

I believe I only get what I give
Hated so much everything so much it made me sick
My relationships: bursting apart
at the seams. A machine, I need that
Organry from which love springs to start
morphing me. Calm the mind's stormy seas
An abortion please, of thoughts contortin me
I'll turn my sordid dreams into a sort of peace

Apathy atrophies faculties that you need each day
I'm your friend and not your enemy don't push me away
Stop running from your pain; its energy can be your strength
Trust me; I'll show you the way

What's going on? Where did this heart come from?
I didn't know I could be so eager to live!
What's going on? Where did this heart come from?
I didn't know I could be so eager to live!

I am the dream of awakening.

I am the returning of the light.

I am the tough green shoot pushing up through the paved stones.

I am the first kiss of sunlight on the unfurling petals of the snowdrop.

I am the wind which whispers the gentle pull of home to the migratory bird.

I am the drop of ice melting on the mountainside with its great dream of the ocean.

I am the sap rising in the blossom tree just before it reveals its sticky buds to the sky;

I am the riotous celebration humming away beneath the earth’s mantle of frozen sleep.

I am the rousing of the bee from its winter slumber, and the soft pad of the mother-wolf’s paw on the snow as she prepares to birth her pups.

I am hope, potential, rebirth and promise. I am the kindling breath which transforms the flicker of inspiration in your creative core into a blazing torch.

Give me the silent crescent moon rising over the sea, and I will build you a bridge of silver light so you can walk up and lie in it.

Give me the frost-hardened wilderness, and I will breathe radiant green life over it.

Give me the healer, the writer, the crafts person and the storyteller, and I will replenish her essence and make her new again.

I am Brigid, Bast, Inanna and Hestia. I am the fierce protectress of the sacred fire.

Tonight I bestow my gifts of power and courage at the hearth of your soul:

Power to step out of the shadows of self-doubt and negativity which have held you in darkness for too long,

Power to shed all that which no longer serves you, and courage to clear your heart and mind for the dawn that awaits you.

I am the time to honor your unique gifts for their true worth and to protect and nurture your creative self as you would a child.

I am the deep longing of the spirit which refuses to be consumed by a narrative of fear and chooses instead to place itself vivaciously on the side of love.

I am the stirring in your belly which knows exactly what you are capable of — and that it’s time the world found out.

I am the fire within which will not be contained any longer.

I am the quickening; the serpent uncoiling; Imbolc.

I am the dream of awakening.
Track Name: 14 This Road
Used to believe in my freedom of choice, even when noise
from the chaos around me seems to compete with my voice
But now decisions, decisions feel like they're clouding my vision
No longer feeling like freedom, they just distract from the prison
Leavin me wishin I was missing, no longer part of the system
But the songs don't make dinner, call it the starvin artist syndrome
So do I just keep pretending that a mind unique can fit in
To a nine-to-fiver life, or keep dreaming with no pot to eat or piss in?

Yo, before I wrote one single song, I was just along for the ride, needed Mob by my side.
Anything I could provide, I'd do it, so he could make his music.
Any opportunity I had, I ran into it, sorta stupid.
Jay Alphonso taught me how to lose two thousand dollars,
Dreams of rockin' shows in Rocawear, crowds screamin', "Holla! Holla!"
Only useful I'm naked, that's the only way I'll make it:
"Take my clothes off, touch my skin it's so soft"...I'm so lost.

And I don't know what to choose with all the paths I see before me.
Desperate and confused, an orphan lost and far from home.
Thought I didn't have much to lose except this heart that beats within me.
Should I rip it from my chest just to keep walkin' down this road?
Let me hear ya now
Hey, hey, hey
Let me hear ya now
Hey, hey, hey
Let me hear ya now
Hey, hey, hey ..yeeeah

Finally got a little crew together, after struggling through the weather
And we raw as hell and I'm convinced no crew can do it better
Sick with the music, we don't know jack about business
Still we convinced we can do it, this is our craft so we live it
Then Sony comes knocking offering for all of our problems
And complications of the past to just dissolve into profit
Just gotta sign on this paper to make it, all that you trading
Is the free thought you created inside your heart; just erase it

Perspectives flawed as I consolidate thoughts on this topic
To be honest at some points I checked out, didn't stay on topic
Jay jaded me, faded trust in humanity, damaged me
Led to understanding, no big breaks unless I'm imagining
Tried to build a team, but we ain't ready
I can't hold my crew down if I can't hold myself steady
And too many other rappers are so busy being petty it's upsetting
In this recipe for success, ingredients I keep forgetting

And I don't know what to choose with all the paths I see before me.
Desperate and confused, an orphan lost and far from home.
Thought I didn't have much to lose except this heart that beats within me.
Should I rip it from my chest just to keep walkin' down this road?
Let me hear ya now
Hey, hey, hey
Let me hear ya now
Hey, hey, hey
Let me hear ya now
Hey, hey, hey ..yeeeah

Just did our 20th show in a row at the same bar
Maybe it don't look like much, but it feels like we came far
Now we opening for bigger names, spitting flames
Getting the same or better crowd response as when the main act hits the stage
Promoters showing love I know that hated before
Booked us for our biggest gig, messed up and canceled the show
But no matter, my will can see the golden path that I'm after
Going for broke and I'm hoping it don't end as a disaster

I think in bars and stanzas, iambic pentameter
I'm a rider, no amateur; but hip hop business is a different beast -
More like selling drugs than anything
Seen all types of fiends,
Life as an artist has been famine or feast
Hope, time, and finances tied up in my dreams
Will it amount to anything? Or is it all False Hope
Like the track by Unseen on repeat?
Shit I just wanna raise my daughter and eat
Build something beautiful to outlast me!

And I don't know what to choose with all the paths I see before me.
Desperate and confused, an orphan lost and far from home.
Thought I didn't have much to lose except this heart that beats within me.
Should I rip it from my chest just to keep walkin' down this road?
Let me hear ya now
Hey, hey, hey
Let me hear ya now
Hey, hey, hey
Let me hear ya now
Hey, hey, hey ..yeeeah
Track Name: 15 Carry Me Home
You drive me crazy and you keep me sane
No playin, I'm saying I'm staying right here by your side
For this life of imagination, so endless and amazing
Your reality taps into the source of potentiality
Bring it up for me to taste, I take a drink
And it's so sweet - playing bass while you make beats
I'm escaping to another dimension and I'm letting go
Penning slow, trying to capture one of many flows
Tom beats transporting me - or maybe it's the tea
But the rain and fire seem the perfect simile
For you - you and me

I've been hoping my whole life to find someone who complements me
Completely love being on your team. I'm home more than whole with you by my side

And when we kissed that night, I envisioned it like
If lava and ice decided to collide
Edges met and lines blurred, ice melted to lava and vice versa
The palette was beautiful
Red and orange hues took full control of me
We were one, I was he, and he was me -- completely
Forged your impervious heart with the heat of mine
Waxing and waning at times, but our love never dies

I've been hoping my whole life to find someone who complements me
Completely love being on your team. I'm home more than whole with you by my side...
Carry me home! Home is when I'm with you...
Can you carry me home! Home is when I'm with you...

You drive me crazy and you keep me sane
No playin, I'm saying I'm staying right here by your side
For this life of imagination, so endless and amazing
Your reality taps into the source of potentiality
Bring it up for me to taste, I take a drink
And it's so sweet - playing bass while you make beats
I'm escaping to another dimension and I'm letting go
Penning slow, trying to capture one of many flows
Tom beats transporting me - or maybe it's the tea
But the rain and fire seem the perfect simile
For you - you and me

I've been hoping my whole life to find someone who complements me
Completely love being on your team. I'm home more than whole with you by my side

And when we kissed that night, I envisioned it like
If lava and ice decided to collide
Edges met and lines blurred, ice melted to lava and vice versa
The palette was beautiful
Red and orange hues took full control of me
We were one, I was he, and he was me -- completely
Forged your impervious heart with the heat of mine
Waxing and waning at times, but our love never dies

I've been hoping my whole life to find someone who complements me
Completely love being on your team. I'm home more than whole with you by my side...
Carry me home! Home is when I'm with you...
Can you carry me home! Home is when I'm with you...
Track Name: 18 Rise Up
It was all a lie, mixed with truth - that's the hist'ry they tell.
Tryin to lullaby our spirits with a sinister spell.
But no - I will never be still! Givin em hell!
Innocent screams swell from the so-called liberty bell.
Meanwhile we live in a state of pretendin it's okay,
runnin the rat race for barely a livable wage.
Bury your head in the sand - bend over, willingly raped.
Our native spirits replaced with the religion of slaves!
Subserviently turnin the cheek for the oppressor;
sacrificing life's quality for heavenly treasure.
Try the peaceful approach, against a tyrant with weapons?
They'll take your rights at gunpoint; you wave your sign as you let em!
You ain't threat'nin singing for peace, while they drummin for war.
You brought a pen to a sword fight - now your guts on the floor!
Don't you get it? They know what they're doing is not to our liking.
So what you think we gonna accomplish by asking politely?
LETS RISE UP!

I came to preach the truth, I came to be the proof, I came to bring the beast to its knees!
I came to bring the pain, I came to make it rain fire from the sky all in the name of...
Freedom! Freedom!
Freedom! Freedom!

I'm experiencing cognitive dissonance -
cause we allow a system that schools kids to pass some standardized tests.
And if they don't comply, we medicate the threat.
And if your meds don't mess you up enough to skip your free lunch -
Oh yum!
Cause Michelle Obama got you some toxic sludge,
to help the next generation trudge on pace
to their place in the rat race where we
make and make - just to throw it all away, away!>>>
So don't think, create, or have a single idea;
those are programmed for you by mainstream media, nightmare to me
So-called American dream where profits over people is the motto of economy.
A country where we still celebrate Columbus Day -
so we wanna emulate pillaging and child rape!

I came to preach the truth, I came to be the proof, I came to bring the beast to its knees!
I came to bring the pain, I came to make it rain fire from the sky all in the name of...
Freedom! Freedom!
Freedom! Freedom!



It's time to take a stand; Syria killin each other with guns, we don't give a damn,
But do it with chemicals, we invade your land.
See a tyrant's only mighty as the sword he commands -
So we police them, take their weapons, putting pow'r in our hands.
Meanwhile, the electoral college undermines the people;
we can vote but our voice is quite a bit shy from equal.
Our minds are weaker; can't even know what's best for ourselves.
Left to our own intellect I guess we would never excel!
'N' lobbyists give CEOs an extra vote through legal
bribes, cash flows - and the same assholes
Charge indigenous tribes for water from their own skies
Murder those who protest! Make sweatshops of the rest!

Now Lady Liberty's screamin, because her children are weaklings.
We left her broken and bleeding, but now it's time to redeem us,
by sacrificing what's needed for unequivocal freedom.
It's the American Spirit - the definition of treason!
LET'S RISE UP!

I came to preach the truth, I came to be the proof, I came to bring the beast to its knees!
I came to bring the pain, I came to make it rain fire from the sky all in the name of...
Freedom! Freedom!
Freedom! Freedom!
Track Name: 19 Shut It Down
MobStyle shut it down...
Live and underground...

Inventive instrumentals with the skill to tell a story
Keep it simple, mostly real with a bit of an allegory
When it began, we were banished to the dimension of man
Saw its inhabitants oppressed and so we gave em a hand

Two obedient kids, raised country and religious
Yo we played along, observed the human way
We learned your dance and song

Persevering through indoctrination, religion, education
System benefiting mostly corporations

So we infiltrated, set up a base camp, and laid plans
To spark minds through entertainment
Over a hundred degrees - and I'm the kerosene

Now we some hip hop superheroes, empowering the people
To stand up to the oppressor from the street into the steeple
Leaping buildings in a single bound, battle villains and we
Bring em down - through the whole village the name will be renowned

Keep it comin now - we keep it evil, keep it genius, never dumb it down
We got that new sound from the underground - and all my people guaranteed they bout to bump it loud singin
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground - grooving as we pass the mic
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground...

Imbued with the qualities of sages,
Wisdom beyond your age and never complacent
Consistent demonstration, gladiator nation
Convinced that we will make it - and that's Mob

She got the glory of the moon in the pitch black night
She that bright, riding through life like it's a half pipe
Don't ask why she that fly, rippin through bad guys
With surgical tactical black knives - and that's Style

Modern day warrior - he'll Shaka you up
And then he'll Zulu you down. As it tears through the air
Staff makes a whistling sound. Pierce through fears
With his spear, embraced the rage - no he ain't playin around - and that's Mob

Mix in precognition with a little hyper-vigilance
Slippin from the grip of thinkin ignorance is bliss
To save the victims of the fall and all its obvious effects
But too raw to be depressed; a goddess in the flesh - and that's Style

Keep it comin now - we keep it evil, keep it genius, never dumb it down
We got that new sound from the underground - and all my people guaranteed they bout to bump it loud singin
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground - grooving as we pass the mic
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground...

Living on the crest of the wave, yes I'm afraid
But I do it anyway, daily steppin up my game
Free spirit, tomboy - I don't care much for fame
And yo KriStyle is the name. Remember back in the day
I was in the back of the stage
But for the last three years I been all in your face

Ay the largest of brains up in the
Smallest of frames, teaming with the clumsy giant
But I won't fall on my face, just gotta
Master my method so I can harness the strength

Of the ethereal material'll
Steer you to a marvelous place
Cause we were made to create, and not be turned into slaves
Oh no that can't be our fate -

MobStyle, we the vessels of change

We got the rebel mind and an anarchist heart
And revolutionary spirit, let the party start
We never stop. Whoever said that we would probably flop
Ought to be karate chopped - y'all shouldn't naughtily talk

Keep it comin now - we keep it evil, keep it genius, never dumb it down
We got that new sound from the underground - and all my people guaranteed they bout to bump it loud singin
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground - grooving as we pass the mic
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground - grooving as we pass the mic
