Track Name: Rocherolle
I said "where you going boy?
with that gun in your hand.
Reach down in your pocket
and make your stand.

You've been here way too long
been roaming here and there
reaching for the stars too long
someday your luck will tear

See that girl sitting next to you?
With her hand in her hair?
She once was mine, you see
it's time to pay your share."

He pulled his pistol real quick
pointing his gun at me
but my finger's were speedy slick
and then that girl was free
Track Name: Corner Cure
A comet falling to the ground
just beyond my reach
tried to catch it in my hands
running down that beach

longing for the light in my grasp
a lantern to guide my way
but i was left in darkness
under stars outside at play

starlight doesn't understand
the darkness lying on the land
tiny pinpricks in the sky
let light shine through as days pass by
the sandy beach below my feet
is a sanctuary where waters meet
reflecting a calm ribbon of moonlight
glowing strong to guide my sight

moonshine steals away
as bright sun opens its eye
casting orange across the waves
the eternal heavens sigh

in the light of the sun
all shows so clear
thoughtful shadows of the night
disperse and disappear
starlight doesn't understand
the darkness lying on the land
tiny pinpricks in the sky
let light shine through as days pass by
the sandy beach below my feet
is a sanctuary where waters meet
reflecting a calm ribbon of moonlight
glowing strong to guide my sight
Track Name: On The Road
Long distance
around the bend
early morning sun
rising above my head
Frisco or dead
land without an end

grab the wheel
feel the breeze
words on fire
and they're about to freeze
turn the car
and head into the breeze

lost love
she's so far away
my mind is racing
over a million days
her picture tells a story in a thousand ways

trapped in time
nowhere to go
the car hits 90
before I know
with my past far behind
I'm on the road

I'm on the road
Track Name: Nothin' But Swiss (feat. Lil Mann)
I can't seem to help myself
what do a nigga do when he got so much wealth
I'm so thankful to be this rich
I got diamonds on my neck, got diamonds on my wrists
I'm ballin like nikes you hear nothin but swish
I'm all about my cheese i want that nothin but swiss
or cottage, girls give me brain like college
yeah this is knowledge, this rap I abolished

Well I spread nigga down
call her katrina
my lady seem wet like aquafina
I stayed on my toes like a ballerina
I keep that white girl I got jungle feva

and here I am
lost in your eyes again
and falling into this abyss that is you
trying to hold on by and through

step out the car
you know who I are
BBJR yeah I'm shining like a star
pick the logo, only wantin to be fed
I'm summonin to the dirt cuz i'm lookin for that bread
I'm lookin for that dome
I'm lookin for that head
either way I'm gonna get slopped like special ed
paint drippin red
bloody like jason
carson and off the air like mason

gettin money is what I do
gettin money is what I am
I don't reserve my money
I just blow it like a band
yeah, I'm the man
yeah, I'm the man
put on my heat
I might give you a ten

and here I am
lost in your eyes again
and falling into this abyss that is you
trying to hold on by and through
Track Name: New Dash
I was out walkin' one day
down the old sidewalk
strollin so thoughtlessly
nearly tripped over some chalk
it all flew by so fast that I could hardly know
why the sky had suddenly burst open with snow

lately I've been thinkin bout a story to tell
but the ideas weren't clear and the words unwell
I tried so hard just to figure it out, yeah
and this same sad story is what came about

suddenly it got so cold
didn't know what to do
but don't laugh at my sad tale
it well could happen to you
but I really had to get to the place I had to go
so my feet, they kept a movin in that frosty snow

lately I've been thinkin bout a story to tell
but the ideas weren't clear and the words unwell
I tried so hard just to figure it out, yeah
and this same sad story is what came about

where was I?
Yeahhhhhh

Kept on a runnin down that street
cool breeze in my hair
something crazy happened
saw myself there
so I yelled out to me a very estranged hey
but he only waved, then he ran away

lately I've been thinkin bout a story to tell
but the ideas weren't clear and the words unwell
I tried so hard just to figure it out, yeah
and this same sad story is what came about
