J.I.D:

 

Look

I had a reoccurring dream really teasing my mind

A search for a better purpose to be perfectly in line

A serpent is walking a surface is swerving it's spewing lies

I find I'm watching my belt I'm wasting my time

I swung high off the sky from a tree to the vine

To land on my feet devious but dealing with pride

I need a

I need a breather to catch up on my second wind and speed up

Running from hell a speed demon

A cell a key jingling jingling jingling a gun bang bang

They bang you slain insane they playing they game

I've been praying for things money could never buy

Like live and die as a man a coward dies a thousand times

I'm outta sight and outta mind I'm outta mind but don't mind it

Salvaging the silence till the cavalries arriving

Balancing a climate moving forward looking up and then behind us

If you love me I can lead you where the light is

Say what you love it's alright

Don't be afraid to find your light

Embrace the day like night

We hear the fire

We all go wild again

 

And you have the name

Of someone I love

You said just keep it true

Lift up your name

Seasons change

You know it'll never be the same

We'll see the sun again

 

And before it fades

I just wanna say that I love you

 

Saba:

Pay the man pay the man

 

Run from my past like I run track it's traumatic

My palace is polamalu I'm grounded like

I race demons like nascar no assistance like nascar

One step forward two steps back watch when

And when it's raining

We're sailing

 

Oh yeah we're sailing

We're sailing

 

I'm off the leash

I go to war for peace

I sleep with an eye open like I'm an ocular

I'm the opposite of a carper with carpal tunnel

Ain't never took a handout no tunnel vision to it got my planned route

Like a cockroach in an ant farm I'mma stand out

Clock'll tick like a doggy dancing for foggy lantern

How I look for light when recording stanza you know the answers

Uncharted area the pressures no better

Yet here I am falling right where blind man let me

 

Say what you love it's alright

Don't be afraid to find your light

Embrace the day like night

We hear the fire

We all go wild again

 

And you have the name

Of someone I love

You said just keep it true

Lift up your name

Seasons change

You know it'll never be the same

We'll see the sun again

 

And before it fades

I just wanna say that I love you

 

Pay the man you got to pay the man

Pay the man you got to pay the man

Pay the man

Well I was laughing real hard until my teeth fell out

Laughing real hard until my teeth fell out

Was laughing real hard but my teeth fell out

Need a little something

Need a little something

A little something little something little something

 

You said just keep it true

Lift up your name

Seasons change

You know it'll never be the same

We'll see the sun again

 

Before it fades

I just wanna say that I love you

 

Can't you see

Can't see me

Can't see me

Can't see me

And can't see me

Can't see me

We all run when the light comes on

Am I wrong for wanting it all

 

But I warned you
