Track Name: Dog Day
Dog day standing in the sun
and the shadows are escaping my grasp
whichever way I turn
they slip away

sun is so hot, and the ground it burns my feet
wanna run and hide but I can't get no relief

sweat drops down my spine
saltwater hits the floor
I'm in for it this time
can't seem to find the door

bus stop standing in the rain
and not a roof in sight
water melts through cotton
onto skin

my mane is soaking and my shoes are feeling wet
wanna run and hide yeah, gettin a little upset

a drop falls down my spine
freshwater hits the floor
I'm in for it this time
can't seem to find the door

stare across the table, a girl is in my sight
golden locks falling cross shoulders so slight
she's not the one I love, but I can't let her know
how could I tell her when she's staring at me so

chills run down my spine
my foot taps on the floor
i'm in for it this time
can't seem to find the door
Track Name: Five Minutes Ago
Sitting in the kitchen
I was looking in your eyes
taste of coffee on your lips
our love is no surprise

Winter morning and we sit inside
letting go of our foolish pride
warming up to let our souls collide
there's nothing that we can hide

Just sitting in the kitchen
I was looking in your eyes
taste of coffee on your lips
our love is no surprise

Sun is shining in my window
and I can feel you on it's rays
the warm embrace will only grow
it's all bright and sunny days

Just thinking back five minutes ago
to the simple things I've come to know
why move fast if you can take it slow
just sit back and enjoy the show

Be my gentle breeze
the apple of my eye
sunshine on my face
my eternal starry sky
let me love you sweetly
love you so completely

Sitting in the kitchen
I was looking in your eyes
taste of coffee on your lips
our love is no surprise
Track Name: What You're Looking For
Sitting here wasting time in this reality
struggling with our impending mortality
drifting helplessly through this endless sea
asking for who you want to be

reaching higher and achieving new feats
one fell swoop and you're back on the streets
crashing, clashing, dodging the rocks
guarding an identity in your precious black box

you can't find what you're looking for
you can only live out your life
tearing yourself apart with effort
is hardly a solving strife
realization is admiration
for a man you undertand is real
caressing and impressing with his gift
other's can't steal or reveal

if you wanna know me, know you first
cuz we all well know that deception is worse
than the ones who loved you through the times that you lied
the ones who shared all the tears that you cried

it's a nameless pain out there on the streets
heartlessly staring down at your feet
cold and alone in a world so extreme
waiting on a love supreme
you can't find what you're looking for
you can only live out your life
tearing yourself apart with effort
is hardly a solving strife
realization is admiration
for a man you undertand is real
caressing and impressing with his gift
other's can't steal or reveal

In the endin end
you know we can be friends
if all is forgiven at hello
Track Name: Roses Lie
Roses Lie
shining like diamonds in the dirt
glorify themselves
hiding their ability to hurt

to see one
with petals full and a smell so sweet
but try to pluck it
and only thorns you will meet

draw your bleeding hands away
only to try again another day
to take the beauty into your grasp
knowing full well it won't last

roses lie
camouflaging all their faults
with the most enticing smells
to draw you to a halt

catching your eye
with morning drops of dew they sparkle and shine
with a splendor so untrue
Track Name: Everybody's Downstairs (feat. Abby Armstrong)
Bright white
a sunbeam gleams
across glass at last
enticing the ice

glitter and glow
heavenly arrow
float on by
in a frozen sky

the world can be old
the world can be cold
but in bright sunlight
frozen glass shines outright

a frosty enclosure
calls for extra composure
simple tricks
we're optimistic

remote we float
on freeze and seas
one with the sun
over snow below

stuck in reflections
engulfed in light
pure and clean
the surface is right

entrapped you hide
tethered and tied
steal the chance to glide
and above reside

pursue what's true
purity and virtue
in a whiter hue
is a fresher view

the lights are on everywhere
beneath the ice, you're stuck downstairs
Track Name: What's Real (feat. John Owen)
We've got bluer skies and we have greener grass
we're living on the other side,
it's all lilies and sassafras

I'm holding onto you, love, you're holding onto me
we're free from all the push and shove
drifting in an eternal sea

puppy eyes and little white lies
we sit beside the world and hide
longing laughs and photographs
a music staff for my better half
peace of mind is what we find
when what's defined is undermined
dancing shoes and last week's blues
simple things to choose to refuse

the sunshine is our ally and the rain just keeps us cool
simple bliss that money cant buy
looking out at the fools

shining smile and sparkling eyes, a hand to hold a hand
we're living with our bluer skies
the heart's sweet holy land

puppy eyes and little white lies
we sit beside the world and hide
longing laughs and photographs
a music staff for my better half
peace of mind is what we find
when what's defined is undermined
dancing shoes and last week's blues
simple things to choose to refuse

lifetime for lovers
freedom to feel
the touch of the tender
to realize what's real
Track Name: Fall Into A Dream
Take a break now from living
rest your weary eyes
put your mind to sleep now
cease your troubled cries

let go of your sorrows
abandon all of your fears
don't worry about tomorrow
just put an end to your tears

fall into a dream

let solemn sleep surround you
on reality's seam
only slumber's thoughts flow through

and in the glory of victory
you raised your glass
a toast, is what you say
to a troubled day passed

but now it's completed
the battle's over and won
let your wounds be treated
until the rise of a brand new sun

fall into a dream

let solemn sleep surround you
on reality's seam
only slumber's thoughts flow through

moonlight
midnight
a celestial flight
in my sight
a hand so slight
to a fist of might
oh the things the things the things
these dreams invite

fall into a dream
Track Name: Never Turning
You're always walkin across that golden bridge
and I know that I am too slow
my heart stirs, but my feet can't carry me any further

You're just ahead of me
but I'm a mile behind you

Your hair is tossin, blowin in the wind
catching rays of the sun's glow

it's a mystery to me
what's a dream or reality?

I feel that shiver, knowing you're nearby
and my tongue it just won't untie
you smile
I stand there wishing you'd stay a while

you say hello to me
wishing I could say I love you

You walk, never turning
I am hopeless, distant yearning
and I think that, I am learning
fight the feeling that keeps burning
keeps on burning

some liquid courage, I call you up one day
just to see what I can say
I hear, not a single ounce of fear
coming through the wire

it's coming through today
I'm ready to find you

You walk, never turning
I am hopeless, distant yearning
and I think that, I am learning
fight the feeling that keeps burning
keeps on burning
Track Name: Another Day
Another day flies by
another day you're shy
but time is my ally

another day we'll see
if it's just a friend you'll be
or if there's more to you and me

never really knew
if this young love is true
in the big, deep, blue
ocean that I see in you

now I can only try
as the summer days do fly
to catch your looking eye
and then never say goodbye

will you ever see
that you matter so to me?
that my love will never flee
if you'd only just agree

I could find peace of mind

One and one is two
all it takes is me and you
with a new point of view
we can make it pull through

when I look up at the sky
the stars would not deny
the knot that we could tie
the earth we could defy

it's my one last plea
just to hear you guarantee
that most wonderful decree
that you want to be with me

I could find peace of mind
Track Name: Sweet Goodbye
It's complicated
was all the rain could say
in it's sweet, coded rhythms tapped on the roof

his head turned out the window
witnessing the soggy scene soak up dryland

and he know's that he can't fly

She didn't know how much he loved her
she never took the time to care
he was lost in the bright white light
when she caught him unaware

just thinking he might die

under it all
we're subject to the rise and fall
and when the earth sinks below the storm
we'll find our own way too keep warm

Vision gets obscured by the settling smoke
that sleeps softly on jagged black rocks

and ears can't hear through the chilling hiss of the tainted rain
that feeds off the life of the flame

his eyes turned to the sky

it's complicated
said the ground as it swelled up
with the polluted drink

life in puddles lept out of the earth
to finish the frenzied flame

and he can only cry
Track Name: Stop Me (feat. Lil Mann & Element)
Like getting change for a dollar bill
this is gonna make sense
legally I can drink
as soon as that ace hit
if you can’t hide from the truth
you might as well face it
if it’s bright as a bracelet
then you can’t face it

my rhyme’s so amazing
I forgot to grace it
and I’m eating this fame up
yeah I can taste it
You haters keep trippin
like untied laces
cuz my flow is feelin tight
like I just got braces

nouveau riche
yeah that’s what I make it
cuz I’m on top right now
and I’m hot as Satan
money, money, money
yeah I just keep makin
with my pockets so full
and yours so vacant

I feel it flowin
fame it aint slowin
and Imma keep on goin
and no one’s gonna stop me now

yeah I’m goin in like it’s my first strike
and the only thing on my mind
is get my swagger right
shorty do what I like
shorty do what I want
lil mama goin down like she can’t float

I never been a thug
but I always been a prep
and I never short some cash
but I always write a check
all this ice up on my chest
has got me sicker than a
colder than the Antarctic
money never counterfeit

I feel it flowin
fame it aint slowin
and Imma keep on going
and no one’s gonna stop me now

comin fresh into the game
tryin to flash on all you lames
and I aim
to take over, yeah

Element’s the name
and I’m on the track with Fforte and Lil Mann
spittin fire yeah we had to bring the flame
and we goin up sorta like propane

Fforte second album funna drop
and we rock out shows
funna make it to the top
and we won’t stop
cuz this is what we do

my flow is so ill any way you wanna say it
Fforte, Lil Mann, and Element we’re so crazy

I feel it flowin
fame it aint slowin
and Imma keep on goin
and no one’s gonna stop me now
Track Name: The City Below
Lamplight brings a gentle glow
to the quiet city below
where occasional headlights flash like eyes
or tiny, flickering fireflies

people drift by like schools of fish
companionship a worn out wish
left behind in old park benches
carvings buried in love's lost trenches

storelights shut down
life comes to close in a quiet town
and we pack our things and go

and the only way to grow
is when you come to know
that somebody somewhere is waiting for you to care

and if you want to fly
don't ever lose the sky
don't let a cold stare catch you unaware

under bridges are spraypaint tributes
where rocks crumble under society's roots
and in the slums a church's steeple
is a beacon of hope for god's lost people

a serene park is natures answer
to filthy streets and drunken dancers
a place where we can run and hide
from the subway rails that we would ride

and the only way to grow
is when you come to know
that somebody somewhere is waiting for you to care

and if you want to fly
don't ever lose the sky
don't let a cold stare catch you unaware
Track Name: Fifteen (feat. Sarah Lauer)
The angel holds her hand
lifts her off the ground
her body lays
where it will stay

her legs begin to sway
she opens her arms
and learns to fly
as the ambulance arrives

“It’s a long way up to heaven”
that’s what the angel said
through the clouds
sunlight lays a path to take them home

floating in the sky
they drift along
not too far from
another passerby

but what about my family?
and what about my friends?
I’ll see them again
at the end of the end

Peter nods his head
she gets to the gates
as her mother waits
to hold her in her arms
