released 26 February 2013

Dark meets light. (period) I'd like to thank everyone that helped me make this album possible. To Frances, thank you so much for not being scared to record! You don't know how many people I tried to collaborate with that fell through. Thanks to Z, Jillian, Jen, Nick, Megan, John, Brad, Sarah and Alex for giving me feedback! It's amazing how much you can do in 2 weeks. Thanks Nick and Annalisa for the amazing video! Thanks Mom and Dad… that should go without saying… I wrote 2 songs for you guys! Thanks to my family both near and far! You are all in my thoughts. Jeannae! The song you did will come out soon! =] Thanks to Fosho and D. Mo for having me when they do they're stuff, and Phantom Leader for helping me do shows. To ASP, I would not be here had it not been for you guys. Thanks Kalleen for the album art help. To all my mentors growing up… Ron, Mr. D, Mrs. Vannest, Mrs. Schweers. Y'all were the inspiration for Antidote. Keep being great teachers. To everyone that supported me with Orfeo, thank you. Apojii would have given up had it not been for your encouragement. Fear nothing, and live your dreams.

Track Name: Beautiful Imperfection
They'll say you're worthless until you've made it
Hold you down til you're sedated
Fill your lungs til satiated
And watch all your dreams fade away

They'll tell you what you do, will never work
Go to school, get a job, make it work
Work hard so you don't have to work
And put off tomorrow what you can do today.

They'll form their own opinions
Hope they never lose context
Reach their own conclusions
No matter what comes next.

I was meant to live for so much more
But I lost myself

Though the road may be long
Persevere,
Prove them wrong
It's character through all that is imperfect

Beautiful Imperfection
Track Name: Drive
Drive

Just keep driving...
There's nothing behind you
Home is just a state of mind
one day it'll find you

Just keep driving

Give me the courage to yet live
My enemy's a state of mind
Courage to yet give
A piece of mine
bridge
The gap I've been putting yellow tape around
Funny how stars shine brightest when light ain't around
Darkness in my shadow
Darkness is my past
The demons in my mind
Are the wind beneath my mast
The glue beneath my cast
Im Feeling so alone
The world becomes my mask
And I become the clone
The thought of tears would be perfect
Just seeing a glimpse of emotion would be worth it
Instead of sitting in this room trying to conjure what I don't even care about
Care about
Roommates think I've overdosed
Asking me my where abouts
But I don't feel like talking
The fight is with my mind
My lips will hold the secrets
My eyes will tell the lies
My mind becomes distracted
My hands always misguide
Reading between the lines
Validation between your thighs
Who cares, like the bee-gees I'm just stayin alive
I could go home to the place where I used to reside
But now I'm sitting here thinking
Of doing nothing this weekend
Except being in solitude with flooded eyes
Man they think they know what I'm about
Im about
They dont really know what I'm about
I'm about
Love
I talk the same story
they ask me why
They don't get it
I could go home
But I think I'd rather drive.
Drive

Just keep driving...
There's nothing behind you
Home is just a state of mind
one day it'll find you

Just keep driving

Only people I call are
Jen and my mom
One breaks me outta my shell
And One rings the alarm
So independent
Constantly telling myself I need them
The load is heavy to not have
Somebody to lean on
Blindly fishing for attention
Only way I can get it
Is to be committed
To the music I reinvented
dreams seems so
Far away it's hard to stay committed
I bare it all in front of you
still scared of your opinion
Damn
The people I'm writting for don't even listen
like saying You have aids will make them judge you fore they ask how
pretty set in my ways
Traded Jesus for cash cows
Tried to slow down
But life is moving too fast now
I've always been a rebel
As soon as you gave me bass
I've always wanted treble
As soon as I knew
the box you put me in
I would advocate the devil
disputes were up for debate
Cause my opinion never settles
I see 50 shades of grey
Clouded by my vision
Pray my soul hell never take
Thoughts of driving off this bridge
Demons keep following me
Trying to find out where I live
I think in in the clear
(They keep drawing near)

Boosting my career
(They keep drawing near)

My Love
They talk the same story
Asked myself why
I don't get it
I could go home
But I think I'd rather drive.
Drive
Track Name: Jack of Hearts
Jack of hearts

I regret all the arguments we never had
I regret all the times that I made you sad
I loved all the moments when I made you mad
Cuz what we had
Looked even better with
Make up sex
And all the other things I can't forget
Still wondering what's next
sitting here waiting
anticipating to hear your list of regrets
Hoping one involves me
But Instead of looking weak
I boflexed

Have I been blind?
For the first time in my life I feel I've opened up my eyes

Tried to define love, it's
Really hard without you hun
Love at first sight, had to be true huh
Like frank ticheli
so many shades of blue huh
Damn
I gotta let go of you
still searching but until
I let go of this choke hold
For certain, I won't know
Until we unveil the curtain
If its broken
My hearts hurting
It's been shot a couple times but its still working
A faint past is still lurking
Haunting me when I'm flirting
I can not move on
Wanting you back
Analyzing where you could be on a map
I even wrote a couple times
But you moved on
I wish I could walk and talk with you
Brain tells me what not to do
Heart saying you've got to!
Don't know who to follow
So confused and hollow

The one girl I fell in love with
How could something right be so wrong.
They all wanted to be you huh

Was it love?
Why do I still dream of a perfect world with you?

Got me wondering lately
Do you think about the same things
Like could I still be your prom king
Like could I ever be your prom king

And when you're feeling troubled
I hope you look up above you
And know that somebody loved you
And I don't wanna cause you no trouble
But these four eyes and drinks got me seeing way more than double

What kind of world
Would this be without you?
Stop!
Found out

Pain was too heavy.
So i Bowed Out.
Track Name: Never Fail
Never fail

They must want me to fail
By not paying attention
I gave'em all my demo
But only few would listen
Man I'm fraking tired of these
Snowflake jiggas
That say that you're hot
But don't wanna see you make 6 figures
Man I must be crazy
Daily, 9-5 daily
On my grind daily
No sleep, and I don't eat
Still rap's vigilante
Dropped unception unfortunately that uped the ante
Now Is that orfeo?
No it can't be
Apojii's
Got a tear drop tat
For those who can't see
The cheddar comes slowly
From those who don't know me
So explore the flow
So you can hear my story
Cuz I want the fame and glory
Glory Hallelujah!
Finally something
Different
Ima bring it to ya
Students got dumbed down
Ima have ta school ya
2 years of dues
Man, This Ain't nothing new bro

(But you haven't made it yet?)

I'm just sayin i still my favorite
Like kanye I got class
Musical Baccalaureate
Opportunity comes
Own it
On my way to the top and didn't need a nigga moment
Go figure.

I'm a sonic marauder
I gotta work harder
Who's that in your ear?
Taking over air waves
So fly and you aint got no kryptonite
So I can never fail here

I'm a sonic marauder
I gotta work harder
Who's that in your ear?
Taking over air waves
So fly and you ain't got no kryptonite
So I can never fail here

I haven't heard from you in a while!
Sorry was too busy making a name
For myself
To call thee
Up all night taking flight
Like mike with a spalding
Man I am so appalling
But my music's Enthralling
Threw my cards at the sky
Said I'm all in
Flow so smooth operators
call in
Fear Embalming
I walked in a church and exclaimed
It's king James over all things! Damn
Weeping angels
Don't ever blink your eyes
Cuz the Kodak's in the moment
And nothing is a surprise
I dream big
It was all a dream kid
So BIG
Didn't know if I was dead or alive
I am not alone like the "i" in my iPhone
I write on
til I flipped sides like a cylon
I'm head strong
Can't let bygones be bygones
Gladiator to these haters
ready to get my fight on
Looking great for ladies
Moving weight with tony Horton
Confidence skyrocketing
branchin out like abortion
i can't tell what's worse
Two girls with no cups or one cup
And if they talk sh**
It's just stuck up


I'm a sonic marauder
I gotta work harder
Who's that in your ear?
Taking over air waves
So fly and you aint got no kryptonite
So I can never fail here
Track Name: Eternal
Eternal

Eternal flame
Take it back to how it used to be
When it was just you and me
Truthfully didn't think we need a 3rd
Degree
Til I noticed you were burning me
Flames always been between her and me
We're a pretty tough crew
Truth
And I know she loves you
Truth
Now im sitting behind enemy lines
Wanting freedom
From You
I kept teasin them
How they Eating all the garbage that they feedin them
Road less traveled deceiving them
guided but the heathens that were heedin them
Damn
for a second
Can i see your fire
Or Should I wait to find it
Been in the dark for so long
I don't think I'd even know light if I stood behind it
25 years sweat and tears
A whole generation and she survived it
Never was one for wiling
But the plight kept the flight on autopilot
She gets so excited
Knowing that her boy
Returns when he runs his mileage
Troubles dont last always
You try to remind us
It's not over til we close our eyelids
So I keep them open
Hoping one day
Our love will keep your doors from closing
For a while I been out of order
The world gets colder
As I get older
And if I go
Please provide a holder
For her
A masseuse to rub out
The hurt
And I pray one day when were dead and gone away we can say it
worked
If I'm on a rise then I'm taking her with me
Don't attempt me
And with that
I'm No longer blinded
Found the light was always
Within me
Right now it's dim
I just have to figure out how it works again
Then to let it shine
And I won't give up without trying


If darkness ever falls on me
Light the way so that we can see
Share eternity together

If darkness ever falls on me
Light the way so that we can see
Share eternity together
Let her know we gon' change
but we'll always remain eternal


Eternal flame
Can you at least light my fire
I see the light ahead but the dark divides us
I always wanted to be wiser
Defeating giants like Goliath
I see the walls you put up inside her
A building to scrape the sky with
Appealing to the life that resides behind hers
Theyre too close so we barbed the wires
Neuroscience, now it's you and me.
And these other man made appliance
They supply us, with everything we need
Except all that's inside us.
Accept all that's inside us
Sometime we need small reminders
Lost in the dark makes us feel blind cuz no sad songs can spark the lighters.
If they're trying,
They can't find us.
Shoot we can't find us!
Admitting to ourselves exactly what's behind us
pile of bones, ashes to fine dust
Reach out my hands, and that suffices
Excuse the pews are filled with vices
I try hard to hidem where the light ends
But you keep fightin to enlighten
Man It's frightening cuz the sky is falling
I hear you calling, as it caves in
Who need Savin?
It's a boulder dash, and im ballin
Drop everything that you haulin
Cuz you can't fold once youre allin
No love in a game when you Fallin
Push you forward, I'm the pawlin
Don't look back
There's nothing there
Paranormal
Living dead
The light is only a few steps ahead
Waive the bed
Revere the grave
Eternal flame
Light the way
don't let me be the last thing that you save
Sacrifice, look what I gave
for the life we made
So we'd be ok

If darkness ever falls on me
Light the way so that we can see
Share eternity together

If darkness ever falls on me
Light the way so that we can see
Share eternity together
Let her know we gon' change
but we'll always remain eternal
Track Name: Solar
Solar

My thoughts are getting flooded
They say we're at the top and
Only heavens right above us
But what of those below us
They can not control us
And if they try, I'll have to send them my condolence.
Solace
For all the money that they could've made...
For the hours that they've been enslaved
For the people writing books about it
For the connections that were never made
Do it
They say were only 25 once
Why am I living like Im only
gonna die once
Screw it
I want to live the American dream
I got pennies for my thoughts
Thoughts busting at the seams
Filling up my vaults
And slowly I see the cost
I want nickels for my thoughts
You could call it the Pentecost
Til it's over
Only one mower
And only one lawn
Pop my collared greens
To get this cash flow mow on
Only one life?
dream on
Like Aerosmith
We on
Some other worldness
woke up
To be reborn
So I passed away
It's sad to say
But now I'm Effin living
Finley got the message from the sender
That was sendin it
Gettin it
They tell you how to do it
, but they've never done it
Blowing hundreds in the wind and gettin nothin from it
And then you feel the plummet
While im still reaching for the stars!
You trying to find the summit while I'm resting here on mars

Revealing all these scars
Ain't no point in hiding them
(Aint no point in hiding man)
Cuz I'm on my solar
I'm on my solar
Cuz I'm so loved so loved
so loved so loved
so loved so loved

Perspiration from this brain storm
Drowned it out
Wishing on a star to see the stars when the fames gone
If the skys the limit
youre not seeing far enough
Head is in the clouds
Above them They see the sun and the rains gone for now
When it comes back? What about that?
fade back to a black reality
Acting like its their reality
Honestly they don't know how to be
Sorry if you doubted me
Like they killing mes
With little stings like killer bees
Waiting for the moment
To spread my wings
My Truth will open mouths
Like Chick fil a did in the south
Just sayin
I heard it in the news
That it's ok to hate if you disagree with a personal view
Discover your truth
But Old news is old news
I am making that new new
Like your parents do in a bedroom
Man it's comedy how
Many zombies can surround you
But you can't see the fact that it's a dead room
Cuz you are dead too
I feel so alive
Lost my identity
got nothing to hide
I am everyone and still me
Experience instilled me
Cuz I'm on my solar
And that's all I need to be
Til its Over.

Track Name: Vampire
Vampire

Make a heartbeat for breakfast
Mama says that I'm reckless
Working these late hours
Knowing i wont regret this
Living a double life
Tipping toeing around the edges
Wonder when I'll have to
take a bullet to the head Man
First off, ima go an eat cha brain
Give you a little hope
Then I'll devour yours dreams
Man Im an FN animal
Eat you out like a cannibal
Hail from San Antonio
Remember I'm the Alamo
I'm the cherry on top
A la maude
She thought I was so sweet
her little tootsie roll
She fell in love, I broke her heart
Geronimo
I played the whole field
like that bunny from the Warner bros
I don't make looney tunes
Looking for that real love
All about my realness
no synthetic true blood
Man I'm so hungry
Fame is like a new drug
Flow so hard
Man ima need a new plug
Man I spit hot fire like spyro
Spreading the gospel
While you making them zygotes
But What the hell do I know
Leavem on a high note
Got Sailermoon on a hook
Like em did with dido
Why should I cry though
Highest point in an orbit
Apojii got that new sound
And You can not ignore it
I want the whole truth
nothing but it
Cool James, ladies love it
Im the underground
I Glisten when I'm above it

Cuz ima vampire

I'm a mess
But you are to
D 2
And I'm too legit to quit you
the only drug i'm addicted to
But I can not control you
Eases the pain to watch you hanging
With them gross dudes
Metamorph
call me bat mayne
Listen to the growth
No rogaine
Got with the phantom menace
Leader of a new age
Swag out the ass
Splitting legs
Like Johnny cage
We don't lose
Unless we give In
Moneys for the getting
Nonviolently getting mine
Like sit ins
Wont be caught dead
with my hand out
Ill let you see the green cuz im leaving
All my bread out
Damn
I could end up dead alone
Immortal combat
You should leave the bed at home
Tonight's no new moon
shes Seated right in front of me
Star and yellow bone
You can down my sunny d
Show them what I'm gonna be
Black man in the future ish
Call me billy D
feeling like a refugee
thinking outside the box
focused on the inner me
Caught me red handed like shaggy
but It wasn't me

It was the vampire

I've already died twice
If i Make it to the afterlife
Then I just might
Never have to die again
Life's a game
Saving 1 ups for my friends
play the game
manipulate the way it ends
No YOLO
Trapped inside my mind though
Like unicorn in a rhino
I'm fine though
Just a Moniker change
Still them same
But I'm takin over everything
Like mj's vitiligo whoa
Track Name: Lifesaver
Lifesaver

Graduated college
Working in a 9-5
On the side getting knowledge
Trying ya keep the dream alive
The poor dream to swim and not take a dive
If a Black Olympian can swim
then I will survive
You can call me lion king
I got so much pride
For my city its a pity
I ain't even tryin
Want to see the world
didn't have a dime
So I found a girl
Now I ain't got the time
Expensive
To chill with
Friends it's
So sad I gotta pick which
Bills get
Paid first so the biscuits
Bisquick
Man, Im So sick cuz
No meals get eatin
Til we get to party on the weekend
Matter fact I'm bout to set it off
Beacon
Peeking
At the crowd just to insure us
The mood is set and the temp is tempura
Haters keep hating
Thinking ima screw up
Super sayin on the mic
Cuz I flow coola
No ice unlike freeza
And slick Rick the ruler
Boss of my business
I be on that Koopa

On in a minute
Til we all in the gettin
And you better pay attention
Cuttin cheddar is the mission
Got a family I'm missin
And reality is kickin when I'm down
But I flow another round til I'm finished

Lifes a shot in the dark
Live in the night and
Hide from the lark
Better study for that paper
Cuz you gon need a lifesaver
You gonna need a lifesaver
If you gon build a skyscraper
You gonna need a lifesaver
Ayo pimpin get your paper

They'll tell you how to do it
They never did
Tell you to pursue it
But they don't believe in it
Man, if you can dance
Here's your chance
Even without a degree
Dead presidents
Necromancy
But wait wait
I'm supposed to graduate in debt
Leave school
For a job that i cant even get
Now that don't even make sense
So we'll pray to be saved by the government
Damn
Or we can marry rich
But theres only 1%
So how am I supposed to make rent
I'm occupying wall street
Pitching a tent
Bitching at the man
But he wont even give me a cent.
Damn,
I just wanna go HOV and
show everybody how to move in a room fulla vultures
And never be consumed when they try to control ya
Money talks volumes
But ima sound soldier
Keepin it 1 hundred
Fear,
Ain't scare of it
My motus oporandi
Is to men's betterment
So if they try to pull the floor
From up under me
They'll find a firmly planted foundation in the sediment

On in a minute
Til we all in the gettin
And you better pay attention
Cuttin cheddar is the mission
Got a family I'm missin
And reality is kickin when I'm down
But I flow another round til I'm finished

Lifes a shot in the dark
Live in the night and
Hide from the lark
Better study and get that paper
Cuz you gon need a lifesaver
You gonna need a lifesaver
If you gon build a skyscraper
You gonna need a lifesaver
Ayo pimpin get your paper

A-P
O-J-I-I
Guess I stay so fly
Now look into my eyes and
Tell me where the disguise is

Why would I try to hide?

I've got nothing.
Track Name: Future
Future

He's never been in this predicament
Feels his soul exposed and some are sick of it
As his Clock keeps ticking and
His heart beats quickening
Moved to a new city
Used to be gelatin, but now his skin keeps thickening
Gets angry
But He's the bigger man
Reminiscent bout visions
Vocal cord collisions
Doing karaoke when
More adults than kids would listen
Now he's doing it big in his fathers image
A father in his life only a slight
Percentage
A father who was there from the
Beginning
He Never considered himself a bastard
Built up his endurance
More hp than Hewlett Packard
Wasn't his fathers fault he was around a lot
But he didn't spin off like family matters
Damn don't think its Hard to be him
At least his father that would come and see him
Every other weekend
Said keep your nose to the grind stone
And like a museum always keeping his eyes on

the future
They asked me why i did it and i said its for the future.
Stay commited man I did it for the future

Every other weekend
He was seeking his fathers approval
His father was proud that his mother was fruitful
All around the world in the cities his father flew to
he called his son in the voice Disney characters until he knew who
Was calling
I remember bawling in the back of the car
Listening to a mixtape he probably sent from Germany
Being all that he could be
Reunited
We were divided for so long
but didn't seem to be
i loved it when he phoned home
I was 2 when they divorced
Turned 8, when he moved to San Antone
They asked him
What you packing so fast for
He said, all I could ask for
Before he finished
He knew he had to get back for

the future
They asked him why he did it and he said its for the future.
Stay commited man I did it for the future

Damn I could talk about the lives that made mine.
But is it your business when Im crossing those state lines
You followed your path
I'm trying to create mine
If immigrants the verse then these bars are what I'm behind.
trapped in a maze
Mint conditioning these raps again
Practicing
Turning into A pathogen
My dad knew it wasn't a phase
I just want to be viral
Infectious with a flow
From the tap like spinal
Wont stop til I go ghost
And I know he'll be in front of me
Til the dum dums don't summon me
When I break the chains
You'll see the beast
My fathers will will be unleash
Sampson Killed it, crowd decease
But if we build, they'll come to see

The future
Track Name: Candy (Terms and Conditions)
Candy (Terms and Conditions)

I Wanna rap about the life I never had
Insecure. Intertwine good and the bad
I'm a mess didnt do my chores mom and dad
But my life is a lists of terms and conditions
my life is a lists of terms and conditions
my life is a lists of terms and conditions
It doesn't have to make sense
Just agree
So we can move on.

Human
Homo sapien
cent ipad
I'm not bad like the marriage your parents first had
Even though mine are
Separate
Ima Spit flames
Like a sweet chariot
Kid games
Man you know I ain't scared of them
And all the other competition
I'm better than
Went from demos to EP to mixtape to lp
They Can't tell me this won't get me the letterman
I'm a pimp
other rappers f you
To pay me
Yellow brick grind
Now I get Dorothy's daily
Long loneliness
I used looked like porkys baby
Moved weight with tony Horton
Now the porkys pay me

You've heard of two somes
And three somes
Now I get it when they call me handsome
They all call me handsome
My mom calls me handsome
And when they switch genders
Like Marylyn Manson
Of they wanna skat like
Sing alongs a with Hanson
I wanna hold them all for ransom
And maybe have a baby on the floor
While I'm dancing
And make it through a hard time
Like i had cancer
And act like
I got all the answers
But I don't got them
I just want some
Although some nights
I just want fun.
While they're
Acting like their life's condition
Change it,switch it, reinvent it
Acting like your life's condition
Change it,switch it, reinvent it

You won't hear me complaining
This is the life
Love me like Raymond
Live for the nights
Of no stress or payments
Man on fire
like Usher Raymond
Let it burn.


I Wanna rap about the life I never had
Insecure. Intertwine good and the bad
I'm a mess didnt do my chores mom and dad
But my life is a lists of terms and conditions
my life is a lists of terms and conditions
my life is a lists of terms and conditions
It doesn't have to make since
Just agree
So we can move on.


Someone tell the dj turn it up
It's a stick up
Someone tell her she's getting too nuts
Bout to shoot some hot scotch
While i go Double Dutch in
The back seat and
shotguns for my little cousins
Lettm see the world a little so they know I love them
You can have your whole cake
i made a bakers dozen
+1 get it?
You can't touch this
im Hot like a fraking oven
I don't really go out clubbing
All I wanna do is make music
Im Nike I just doos it
Finish entertaining them and watch them lose it
When I'm done they can cut the swoosh and
100 years ago it would've been a nuis.. sance
Since it isn't
Count my blessings
All the while Getting spinach
And America
puts me in an
Image

I'm a suburban kid
North west side of San Antonio
They used to call me Oreo
You know how the racial story goes
Man it's so dumb
I'm done


but not really when they,
Acting like your life's condition
Change it,switch it, reinvent it
Acting like your life's condition
I Changed it, i switched it, and reinvented it

They must think I'm crazy
Intellectual property and stocks
Don't phase me
Died a while back
Now I'm pushing daisys
Still being who I am
And not what the make me
Track Name: Antidote
Antidote

Its been a long time coming
But you know I've made it now
And I will sojourn the truth
railroad of the underground
Back in '93
It was Mom and me
A trinity
Missin one
but we found a separate peace
2 was all we needed
Man I felt completed
If We had each others backs
We'd never feel defeated
Immovable force
She never let me self degrade
Whoop my behind
Just to remind me
That we came from slaves
I was bullied a little bit
never an invalid
Grew up And faught the battles
for those other kids
I could never be broke
Behind the mic like Tito
Loving all the people
Cuz She told me we were equal
Sandra was the prequel
To show me some wouldnt think so
I didn't believe it
Until that night,
Instant replay: TiVo
She occupies a soft spot in my heart
But Her father didn't want
His grand kids to look like
Negros
She watched tv shows but
This was murder he wrote
I learn from Heros
To feel like I needed zero
World lays in my hands
Maybe I can fritos
Other kids
who got judged and prayed for life repos
But the past is
What we can't get back now
She found another man
Her father didn't need to pat down
Im Written my own path
Keeping my frequency fly
labeled myself an outcast
My Castles in the sky

Hook:
Even with a Heart of Gold
Some dont want to let it show
I wont forget it
I won't forget it
I wont forget it, No
We all know that the world is cold
but you were the antidote
you were the antidote
I won't forget it, No


Back in middle school
Mrs. Van Nest
Always wanted to contest
policy was honest
I was living thoughtless
She saw I was flawed
Thought that I could flaw less
Tried to see the God in me like
Lucy lawless
But it didn't work did it
She asked me if I read that book for class
said I did it.
I was just kidding
But that was not the point
She saw a need for precision
I was hitting and missing
Man She Wouldnt let me rest or settle for nothing
If I wanted something
Found my lyrics on the floor
And I wished for that second coming
She Told me a cussing was lazy
I couldn't think of nothin else
Not a valedictorian
But im Top shelf
give it away
Give it away
Give it away now
She gave me a way out.
And nothing was on my mind
Except that grind to stay out
I hope that one day she get to see this bouquet now
Nothing but respect for her
And her position
she said All you gotta do is listen
And comprehend
There is nothing you can't do
I'm am your teacher
Win or lose
My mission is to advance you

Hook

It's crazy how it goes
It's crazy no one knows
what we'll become
until we get there
and we'll get there

Bridge: My Inner Jii
My inner me
My lonely thoughts
My inner Peace
Orfeo got put to sleep
so you can call me Apojii
I will not Forget it, no
I won't forget it, no
debted to whom the credit goes
I won't forget those
sacrifices of men and mice
it's amazing tomorrow we'll
shed the vices
I will not forget it, no

Hook out
