I can feel the tension, every time I give attention to the time line that downloads into my mind, all by design so divisive feeding in my vices, social media be streaming freely, but I wonder what the price is is this the way that life is, living in a society of sickness where you gotta be sick to fit in, oppressor or the victim where false idols shout loud and God whisper I’m learning how to filter and learning how to listen and what I choose to give attention to is my decision if I turn it off, and look inside, will I find the wisdom? beyond the definitions of division we been given another world is calling, tell me what’s your vision

(verse 1) coming up from the underground, seen the world turned upside down lightning crack thunder sound, the weight feel like 5 hundred pounds dark age of a thousand years, where the people still live in fear fuel the greed and desire, the white race misuse the fire first the spark, then the flame, then the atom bomb that rained from the sky on Japan, world domination, that plan been in the works, set up control, but truth is what the future holds no one knows, humanity at the crossroads better be watching our step, mother earth we making her sweat (hot) life’s goes on, but the virus must be cleansed, bet the so-called “civilized” ‘aint ready better recognize what’s petty and what matters that survival of my family can’t be hooked to the mental narcotic, fiber optic, feeding our energy attention, we are the product, of the realest hologram perception I been sent to tell you raise ya muthaf***** hands (Hook) and stand up for what you believe or be a slave in the mind in the land of the free just another day in babylon until it rains what is it going to take us to wake up, in times of change?

(hook) somewhere overseas, I fly alone all I got is dreams and a microphone living through the music gotta give my all  find my place in this world… I don’t belong (verse 1) I been longing for a queen wit me, on the throne  but for now I let my heart be my only home seeking healing and forgiveness and to right my wrongs feel my destiny is calling gotta write my song  let the journey unfold, stay in my zone stay patient, listen close to what I’ve always known to calm the inner conflict of longing for a love that’s sacred but stay moving with a hustler’s nature, trying to make it but the definition keep on changing aint got a label, it’s more than entertainment, I’m trail blazin this road with no vacation  no recognition I deserve but I stay patient with desires my ego an my spirit, I walk that fine line trying to make it so they both co-sign it or go loco to find it this world got my soul so divided  type of pressure that mold coal to diamond (hook) (verse 2) it’s been a long time coming from sleeping in my cutlass feeling like there’s no one I could trust in but give thanks that my skin got toughened so I can keep the hate out now I’m trying to let the love in and let the past be and decomposed put it all in these redemption songs we compose see Creator got the plan and it’s a need to know… basis I blaze mics to make your speakers blow studied game and learned the secret codes don’t just do this for the fame, but so the people know I see another world, people say I’m dreaming though I keep on going and speaking in these freedom tones translated from my heart to make a decent song everyday I’m working hard for all the seeds to grow so I package up my harvest, now it’s legal though and I’m hustling my product ’til it reach ya soul (hook) somewhere overseas, I fly alone all I got is dreams and a microphone living through the music gotta give my all  find my place in this world… I finally belong
