We took our time to make sure that we came with our best effort. We can't wait for you to hear it!"

Track Name: Narcolepsy (feat. Sheisty Khrist)
Verse: Sheisty Khrist
The Devil asked me what's my asking price,
Told me "after life there's no afterlife."
I laughed twice he laughed thrice,
One half of me the path of a geist, the other half ice.
You'd have to have a wife in Bath to math my half-life,
You'd have to fast and math the wrath to match my last life.
I ascertained it's like an acid in my brain,
like I'm sipping' a flask of acid rain mixed with aspartame.
My pain moves faster than Master Cane's master with a massive cane,
When mass is gained you amass again.
I mask my pain at mass where the pastors train,
A bastard praying so fast he could of passed a train.
The mind negates the nine gates, time waits for no man,
I'm listening to Tom Waits trying to make a snowman.
Don't want to go outside it's like I'm snowed in,
'Cause even with a winter coat the winter cold'll blow in.
Yeah! The winter cold'll blow wind,
The old men invented code that's "when it's cold you go in".
See what's a bold plan to an old man,
but a Old Gold can you can hold in both hands.
Sleeps the cousin, but deep guzzlin' keeps you buzzing,
Sheep run away when he sleeps so he keeps a dozen.
On the same nightstand where he keeps the 'Tussin,
He keeps tussling, weep in his sleep such a deep discussion.
The seasons don't die they merely change,
I'm clearly estranged from reality nearly deranged.
My prognosis is God coast the cosmoses,
When God's the closest God's ghost is God's gnosis.
See this is rain, snow, and hail,
I'ma reign so that Hell's soaked in rain, and snow, and hail.
The game's going frail,
In a Kangol and Shelltoes I came to tell you lames in the game to go hell.
(Wake up) And stop sleeping on me.
Track Name: Good Morning Mourning (Remix)
Verse 1: Cas Metah
We came in with gauntlets, made them into omelets
stained in my optics are the pains of progress.
I know it take losses to make profits
but when nations facing conquered they playing Contra.
If you play with contraband pray you ain't a pauper
population top guns got Wall Street stocked up.
Hovering like helicopters so they can watch us
long enough to come up with a plot to stop us.
Don't even get me started on these cops and all the drama
Oscar Grant to Eric Garner
Partner that pistols not a permanent marker
got my hands up but I can't breathe in this smog, ugh.
Frustrated for the folks falling victim
to a fallen system, this friction is flinching.
Tension is wrenching the heart of my mission
hearts and minds missing, good morning mourning.

Hook: Elias
Good morning mourning (good morning mourning)
My eyes are crying
Oh Lord, no, the horror
got to cry for your sons and daughters
I reach my hand in the muddy waters
Good morning mourning, yeah

Verse 2: MotionPlus
I dream big, wipe the cold out my eye
colder than this world that we live in, why?
Time slips by, why live with regrets?
I still fear death but deaths not denied by
no man, just a cross and a promise
but no man on this earth lives honest
Honestly I cry weekly for my grandmother
she been gone since '89, that's a long number
But the love I remembers unconditional
and more than one time I thought to let the pistol pull
Self inflict, get me there where the love is hidden
and suicidal tendencies are the ones forbidden
It's a bidding war, labels own my soul, no
it's a hidden war, stable and control, no
My emotions are at def-con warning
arise with the Son singing good morning mourning

Hook: Elias
Good morning mourning (good morning mourning)
My eyes are crying
Oh Lord, no, the horror
got to cry for your sons and daughters
I reach my hand in the muddy waters
Good morning mourning, yeah

Verse 3: JustMe
Morning mourning. I started yawning
and then performing my Daily Operation
The life of a grown-up. I think I'll have a Donut
and consider that my little escape from
responsibility. The cost of villainy.
Capital Punishment is what we all face son.
A mixture of scripture, but it's hard to see The Big Picture
through the Ill Communication
Written and broadcasted, posted bombastic
on every channel, station and website
But I still got an Urge For Conscious Words,
so Eazy-Duz-It I'll be searching the night
For a Life After Death. Take my massive breath.
All Eyez On Me when I'm grabbing a mic
Open every single lock trying to be the King Of Rock
end of the day that's a Rapper's Delight

Bridge: Elias
Mother Nature cries because of us
Father Creator cries for all of us
We don't own the truth at all
we just seek a higher call
Want a higher love
but we're living in the fall

Hook: Elias
Good morning mourning (good morning mourning)
My eyes are crying
Oh Lord, no, the horror
got to cry for your sons and daughters
I reach my hand in the muddy waters
Good morning mourning, yeah
Track Name: The Burning
Intro: Wonder Brown
The Guide that lights my way
starts in the dusk of day
and dreams when the rugged play
The guide that lights my way...

Verse 1: Elias
Up in the morning before the sun rises
just one of my many sacrifices.
The freeway hums in the background
Two choices, stand up or back down
I got my cross in the corner
it's heavy and hard to shoulder
Like Sisyphus I feel like I'm pushing a boulder
And I get tired, my light gets dim
and it's more about me, and less about Him
And I'm trying to figure out how I can begin
'Cause I don't really see the start, I'm seeing the end.
I get lost in my dreams and plans for the future
so if you need me God, go ahead just use me
I'm up in the morning before the sun rises
just one of my many sacrifices
and the freeway hums in the background

Hook (x2): Mouf Warren & EF Cuttin
Wake up in the morning got the yearning for the burning
believe what you heard 'cause you know that I wrote this
for the hungry and under underprivileged
we just open our mouth and let these words paint the pictures

Verse 2: Wonder Brown
The battle lies within as I'm crying again
sign, sealed, delivered what's inside, what I send
Sin being the symptom of a sign to my end
bringing it back to reside in the wind
No I can't be phased or even fathom of a life that isn't action
packed when the fact remains that pain's a track record
still spinning in the back drop of my still frame
Thankful of the cold air that chills and until pain
constricts the lungs and equips what's stunned
to project the smoke that slopes from this wishful tongue
that spits the dew from those with a choice to choose and a voice to use
that submits to the noise of silence when it's poised to prove
that what's to come starts in the lungs
churned from the same vein that imparts what's been done
the power of Christ compels to move this man pouring this song
with the depths of my breath from the morning until dawn

Hook (x2): Mouf Warren & EF Cuttin
Wake up in the morning got the yearning for the burning
believe what you heard 'cause you know that I wrote this
for the hungry and under underprivileged
we just open our mouth and let these words paint the pictures

Verse 3: Cas Metah
For more than half of my life I've had this passion to write
raps the average cats didn't like
Kind of like The Passion of Christ, the vocab was foreign to them
or maybe their blood diamonds were more important to them
Either way I knew I'd need to escape
and seek a place where people relate to heathens with faith
'Cause my legs don't move with the body like the River Dance
I'm alone and misunderstood, I'm Edward Scissorhands
This is a man's world, this ain't a children's tale
that's why after one dark night a lot of Christian's bail
A lot of missions fail
But I don't let the thought process get me down I spit this hail
through the clouds every sunrise
I ride shotgun 'til sunset and run miles with one breath
Come test the one next to none
and while you doing what they done did, I'll do what ain't been done yet

Hook (x2): Mouf Warren & EF Cuttin
Wake up in the morning got the yearning for the burning
believe what you heard 'cause you know that I wrote this
for the hungry and under underprivileged
we just open our mouth and let these words paint the pictures

Outro (x2): Wonder Brown
The guide that lights my way
starts in the dusk of day
and dreams when the rugged play
Track Name: Hey U
Verse 1: Cas Metah
You're like a walker from The Walking Dead
I'm like Walker Texas Ranger with a gauge to your head
'cause I don't congregate with awkward weight
I save the rest of y'all a plate and I just play the chef
(yeah I just play the chef)
Not like Raekwon, more like Ray Charles
'cause I still can't see what's cooking in the graveyards
But I heard they cooking meth in they cars
We label it chaos, they call it a day job
These are the dog days, it's hard to praise God
it's dark in these hallways, no sight of The Day Star
No hope where they are, faith lay far away
not even angels hear the cries these walls make
Not even made to fear these ties these laws break
the governments a gimmick, need redemption like Shawshank
I play "Redemption" by Bob Marley
with one eye on the enemy always

Hook: Mouf Warren
Hey you, we're looking in your eyes
is anybody there, because to our surprise
No one's home the majority of the time
that's why so many of us don't understand you
Hey you, we're looking in your eyes
is anybody there, because to our surprise
No one's home the majority of the time
that's why I've asked God for the patience to understand you

Verse 2: Mouf Warren
A lot of people equals power
You get the population to believe a certain way but only the strong will survive the propaganda
And those few lonely souls are out numbered the moment they don’t want to dumb down and compromise what they feel in they heart is righteous
There's a conflict of interest, you're honestly tripping
if you thought the separation of church and state was the end of the friendship
In fact it got tighter like Peter Popoff's ear piece
We see them report the fake news and I'm not talking TMZ
It's all love when you living that life
in this American nightmare tucking a pistol under the pillow at night
just in case you need to defend
Fear itself will keep you from living free and expanding your awareness Do you take the time to read between the lines?
and see we've all been deceived and nobody can stop the crime
We got members of congress that are caught up in the hype
What am I feeling like?
It's the Night of the Living Life

Hook: Mouf Warren
Hey U, we're looking in your eyes
is anybody there, because to our surprise
No one's home the majority of the time
that's why so many of us don't understand you
Hey U, we're looking in your eyes
is anybody there, because to our surprise
No one's home the majority of the time
that's why I've asked God for the patience to understand you

Verse 3: MotionPlus
I hear the death dealers knocking, quit sobbing wipe your tears up
if we ban together we can all make them fear us
Congress and the Senate and the flunkies in the White House
Illuminati puppet strings vanish with the white out
Witch craft dabblers, pentagram and power moves
Pentagon picture frames missing like the towers two
Nine-eleven, twelve years, three six five
sixty seconds in a minute, deep six lives
See them shootings in Aurora and the schoolhouse
you know the plot to keep it quiet like the school mouse
They want them tools out, so we can't protect our flesh
they'd rather have us mixed up like we're metro sex
But I'm intelligent, my feelings are irrelevant
the killings in Chicago get little press of telling it
Chiraq DrIllinois, living in a war zone
but every where's a battlefield when lies are poured on
Track Name: Distracted
Verse 1: JustMe
How does it happen? That we don't know how to hunt and gather
But I know every lyric uttered by Marshall Mathers
When was the last time that we discussed family matters
Instead of watching an episode of Family Matters?
We got a drunken uncle dressing in a high hat
Kicking us into snares while we stare at iPads
The war rages on and we don't bat an eyelash
Rachel Ray is on, and I think Ellen is on next
The zombie apocalypse ends with the dawning of consciousness
Look at the broken promises. I guess that's honest politics
We don't see what wrong with this. Watching something blonde with tits
We just want to rhyme and shit, rocking all the bombest fits
Are we not entertained? 'Cause we're not in tune with our neighbors pain
Are we not in the drain? Are we to busy going up in flames?
I can't tell any more. Maybe we're all insane
Are we in Hell anymore, or is it just a game?

Chorus: Wonder Brown
Distracted
I’m just a marionette on my cable
Distracted
If it’s for money, I’m willing and able
Distracted
Taking for granted I’m taken for granted
Distracted
If not distracted then I’m a distraction

Verse 2: Wonder Brown
It happens whenever I click and I drag
spit and I hack up everything that I’ve taken the time to listen for that
except I’d never envisioned I’d lack (Power)
the will to kill our time on something to fill our lives
Told to Apple-S on my mind, the man of Silicon on his grind
until I opened this Bible, concerned all this sermon’s revival
then reminded why it died condensing marathons to miles
Lord give me a passion to create that which can’t break if my bandwidth someday goes makeshift becoming tampered and tainted
Internet porn, babies for sale, political ads branded and bagged
giving me more that never fails to promise me something that I lack
Settle the score, save me from Sheol, escape to a fad that only distracts me from the man that I’m supposed to be
as if you’re not close to me
Who knew that when I was virgin she would take my soul?
Who knew that when I went to Church they lied to take control?
Who knew that when I had a child she’d take all that I have?
Who knew that I would point and click everything that I had?

Chorus: Wonder Brown
Distracted
I’m just a marionette on my cable
Distracted
If it’s for money, I’m willing and able
Distracted
Taking for granted I’m taken for granted
Distracted
If not distracted then I’m a distraction

Verse 3: Mouf Warren
It's like the money ain't enough and now people got to die
according to their evil deeds, slow or fast, you decide
So every dollar they dispense when one decides to buy something nice can't be weighed without the thought of getting high out they freaking mind
Addiction is a bitch son, see I should know that
Money holder, bill folder, no emotional greedy bastard
But if it feeds the mouths we got at home then so be it
All the while souls you poisoned are ODing where you don’t see them
How could I not be distracted? Look at what I attracted
Am I the same soul I was when I was a boy? God I'm asking
'Cause time is steady passing and I don’t think I've grasped yet
just how lost we are without you through all this madness
I got family strung out on Oxycontin and crack
but the fact that she's horny and wants me bad got me forgetting fast
It's like who was I supposed to call? What was I supposed to do again?
I was supposed to...wait a minute...wait...hold up...hold up...

Chorus: Wonder Brown
Distracted
I’m just a marionette on my cable
Distracted
If it’s for money, I’m willing and able
Distracted
Taking for granted I’m taken for granted
Distracted
If not distracted then I’m a distraction

Outro: Wonder Brown
Everywhere else I’m severed from self
Kept on the shelf and tethered from hell
Weather the storm and left for dead
But I better forget if I’m led to forget my distraction
Track Name: Everything Is Wrong
Verse 1: Cas Metah
It's never good enough
just when I thought I hit a homerun you telling me "that's a rookie bunt"
And hun you should be blunt, but come on
just 'cause I'm made in God's image, doesn't mean I'm cookie cut
Understand I'm not a Wonder Man
I'm doing what I can to make this love enhance
breath by breath, brick by brick
step by step, inch by inch
I'm climbing, but it's a process surviving
the trials of the jungle among the tigers and lions
I don't need to be fighting with my rib too
or paying your bills when my rents due
I give you the benefit ten times out of ten
ain't never hit you, and I never will
All I'm asking is let's get past the fits
back to when my passion over ruled my accidents

Hook (x2):
Why are you right when I'm so wrong?
Everything you do is just alright

Verse 2: MotionPlus
There's nothing I can do to seem to ever measurement up
inch away from the goal but that ref measures us
Left to us, left us, right away the wrong direction
you treat me like diseases and we never use protection
I try really hard but that pump you got is rock
and that blood that flows through it got to be more then some clots
I love you very deep, twenty thousand leagues or knots
however you want to measure, I'm drowning until it stops
Every night we seem to fight and you hit me with the stunner
what a bummer, you're stone cold and it's still in the summer
I'm "Mister Lover Lover" but my Shaba never Ranks
I'm Mister Mother Sucker 'til that money's in the bank
Spend it 'til I'm spent, used up and out of luck
out of time, vision blurry like some purple in a cup
Lean against the wall reminisce about trust
we in the same room with no room between us, man

Hook (x2):
Why are you right when I'm so wrong?
Everything you do is just alright

Verse 3: JustMe
What happened to us?
I don't even know
All I know is
I can't seem to do anything right anymore...
To be right just once would be heavenly
I ask the wrong questions, losing at Jeopardy
Choosing that weaponry and using it against me
got me second guessing, confusing me, separately
I know that we are very happy, we rarely scrappy
but why do you prefer to cap me instead of dap me?
How many times I disappoint you in the last year?
I could never turn it right like nascar
Fighting past dark for the future so bright
when we had nothing left everything was alright
Praying all night and penning this song
but it's hard to even write when everything is so wrong

Hook (x2):
Why are you right when I'm so wrong?
Everything you do is just alright

Verse 4: Mouf Warren
Some days he feels like he shows and proves for nothing
Every time he does right she feels like he's trying to do something
'Cause every taken step is held suspect
when he uses his cell or logs into the internet
They say jealousy's an ugly trait
still he longs all day to see her pretty face
She always says "you have a way with words"
and every girl that answers his calls at work says his voice is superb Kind of gets on her nerves
but deep down inside she knows she gets what she deserves
Doing anything he can just so that she wont hurt
To no avail it seems, got's him feeling like a jerk
it's like love is not enough in this relationship
Love now feels like a curse when at first it was a gift
But with a love so strong whether wrong or right
both couldn’t walk away even if they tried

Hook (x2):
Why are you right when I'm so wrong?
Everything you do is just alright

And I can't walk away from you if I tried
Track Name: Crawling In The Cold
Verse 1: JustMe
God even as the cries crawl out my mouth
parts of my mind die and fill with doubt
I want to shout but I can't muster up the shriek
I know that you are real and listening, I mean I think
I been weak for weeks forget the by the by
dancing cheek to cheek but we can't see eye to eye
Both a freak and geek so I will try and try
but I'm not too meek to speak so when I spy a lie
I rhyme with the passion of the minor prophets
that saw the injustices and told Israel "stop it"
We have made a mess I think it's time to mop it
but when the album pressed man nobody'll cop it
Not to shop it, but I think we need a demo
so we can see beyond the walls to the peak and meadow
But what do I know? man I'm just a wetto
that can't get off his hands and knees to tell the Lord hello

Hook (x2): Elias
I crawled 'cause I couldn't walk today
everybody knows that you're supposed to pray
But I can't think of any words to say
when this cold going to melt away?

Verse 2: Mouf Warren
Must've been one of them days we woke up on the wrong side
or maybe it's 'cause I loath myself and won't die
God knows I've tried and also that I've lied
I've apologized so many times, in hindsight I cry
I place myself out in the open so I can't hide
wishing you didn’t notice these flaws in my life
The hate I harbor is hopeless by a land slide
and frozen over is my heart and dark inside
Was it nature or nurture that made me use curse words like a second language? I'm not certain
Frustrated with the way things have worked out
I feel burnt out and weak and so out of focus
Today I stopped myself to think about the last time I prayed to God
and made the call 'cause I had no problems at all
I couldn’t so I knelt bedside hands folded
I drew a blank and couldn’t muster up the words to even quote this

Hook (x2): Elias
I crawled 'cause I couldn't walk today
everybody knows that you're supposed to pray
But I can't think of any words to say
when this cold going to melt away?

Verse 3: Reflex
Standing here with a sheepish grin
Got an audience with God, but can't bring myself to speak to Him
And if I could speak to anyone, it should be God
I should be offering prayers like I'm Goodie Mob
Trying to touch what I never touched before
See what I never seen before, but I woke to see the clouds
And thought somebody rewrote the script
Supposed to see the sun, what type of a joke is this?
But maybe God's bored of waiting for me
To move past all my flaws and shady deceit
All my striving, trying hard to change my ways
So I can earn grace that I couldn't earn in the first place
But to overstretch the metaphor
I've been knocking on Heaven's door, till knuckles are red and raw
And my words dry up when I'm baring my soul
'cause I'm not sure if I'm still on hold...can you hear me Lord?

Hook (x2): Elias
I crawled 'cause I couldn't walk today
everybody knows that you're supposed to pray
But I can't think of any words to say
when this cold going to melt away?
Track Name: Enable Her
Verse 1: MotionPlus
She wasn't born with a silver spoon, but she made it work
million dollar smile, but two times the hurt
Double down on the love search, love hurt
had to search low to the ground in the mud first
She was so depressed, felt so alone
she had a man, had his heart, but her heart is cold
Hard to know if it was realer than the ones before
hard to see the path ahead when there's another door
Open and close, in and out, a lot of soul ties
a lot of passion and lies twisted like bowties
He would tell her you're the apple of my eye
she would tell him in a minute that an apple don't cry
And the tears are still streaming, dealing with these demons
dealing with abuse, boiling over still steaming
Holding on to hope, but never to its meaning
now she's giving up on this world and she's leaving

Chorus: Elias
She was the same old girl
that I always knew
So full of life and love
until she lost all of that too
He was the same old boy
didn’t know what to do
She was slipping away
and his dreams were far too few

Verse 2: Wonder Brown
He grew up on the unsuitable side of fitting the truest armor
”So what you guard your heart for?”
Some say it’s darkness
a godless plan for never paying the homage
so you could trust he’d never say it honest
The heart on his sleeve read “a tainted promise”
One-after-the-other victim in the grayest bondage
So you could say he painted in fifty shades
a beautiful deception hidden in uplifting ways
A bitter stain of a family curse
but it runs in his veins to put his vanity first
so in no time guess who’s sanity’s worst?
He’s got her looking everywhere for an answer reversed
and takes a deep breath, checks his reflection
then quickly turns his back to that scary direction
that same old story that never confesses
He buries her grin in the callous that cost her affections

Chorus: Elias
She was the same old girl
that I always knew
So full of life and love
until she lost all of that too
He was the same old boy
didn’t know what to do
She was slipping away
and his dreams were far too few

Verse 3: Elias
They found a body in the park about
1 am
And his mind went back to the first time he ever saw her
give him that cute grin.
They were 9 years old but the world grew cold
and their paths just grew apart.
But the thing that stuck with him most of all
was the grin that still had his heart.
She used to laugh and play
now she’s a runaway.
And Sally got a one track mind
Hitting the pipe most all of the time.
As she lay in the middle of the cold, dark park
He felt himself sink within.
But the thing that stuck with him most of all
was the grin that still had his heart

Chorus: Elias
She was the same old girl
that I always knew
So full of life and love
until she lost all of that too
He was the same old boy
didn’t know what to do
She was slipping away
and his dreams were far too few
Track Name: Bleeding Heartland
Verse 1: Ruffian
Dive off the face of earth and plunge into The Son
sleep on the moon and have a dream of where I'm from
Babies losing babies, leaders turning shady
life's a maybe, night cravings slowly changing men to animals
Lack of love got them transforming into cannibals
that's why they facial features crazy
I done seen the dead walk, ain't too much amaze me
God be the antidote but they would rather be sick
be rich, die trying to be what he is
dope flowing slowly through they veins into the fetus
Mama's at thirteen ain't even had a chance to be kids
Restless can't sleep 'cause they was laying where the beast lives
daddy drunk and high so we get beat for no reason
Faithless, scared to let their knees bend
What in hell do you believe in?
What's in Hell to believe in?

Hook (x2): Elias
What do you believe in?
I can feel you reaching
I can feel disease it's
moving like an ether
Inhale
open veins now I'm bleeding

Verse 2: Cas Metah
This is reality where I live, no word of it fiction
no chicken in the fridge but they got birds in the kitchen
Addicts itching for the fix 'cause the verdicts been rendered
serving a life sentence ever since the turn of this century
Hustlers turned to junkies
the ones that used to get bundles are struggling to re-up
'cause they get high on they rent money
I used to ride with a dime, yeah, a fine thick honey
now she always sick, can't keep nothing in her thin stomach
I can pray but I can't save them
it's a painful situation daily see your peoples digging they own graves
with one of the greatest killers since Hitler, and it ain't racist
but the streets named it "boy" 'cause it's a form of modern enslavement
Heroin, very few will escape it
many will snort, many will bang it
therefore there's many more that will lay dead
chest caved in and veins drained red
comatose from an overdose
on and on it goes, on and on it goes, on and on it goes

Hook (x2): Elias
What do you believe in?
I can feel you reaching
I can feel disease it's
moving like an ether
Inhale
open veins now I'm bleeding
Track Name: Dog Days
Verse 1: Cas Metah
We all walking by grace, right?
So why you up in my face like you ain't seen grey skies?
What? It's always sunny? Always lovely?
Where you living at buddy? In what country?
'Cause where I'm from is dumb humid in the summer
seasons change and they ain't like when you were younger
Global warming made this skin a little tougher
a little hungry, 'cause all I had was peanut butter
Brother I don't think you know what it means to feel the struggle
just got to call your mama for money when you in trouble
But I'm not from the 'burbs, I'm from the gutter
where the silver spoon's rusted, so it's a must to hustle
No I'm not done yet, yet it is finished
Heaven conquered Hell, so I'm pale with no blemish
To some it isn't enough, that have to have limits
they have to add gimmicks to act Christian
Then ask if I'm walking close to the fire
I been close to the fire most of my life
Born 8-1, born again 9-5 'til I die
living in these dog days and times

Chorus: Wonder Brown
Take a step and make it known
Just know (just know)
What you perceive isn’t always how it plays out
Take a breath, but take your own
Oh no (oh no)
If we live amongst the beast, then these are the dog days now

Verse 2: JustMe
News flash homie! I don't know it all
But if our crews clash crony, you're the one to fall
'Cause I ain't never been big on quittin'
I believe in fighting, writing, scratching, spittin'
Whatever it takes to reveal the hidden
A lot of mistakes made, we'll admit them
Claiming G.O.A.T.? Man, you must be kiddin'
We K-9s obey lines like "speak" and "sit-in"
But never roll over or play dead to make bread
We've been called "Rover" but pray heads will stay fed
When it's all over we pained, bled, and gained friends
From Cliffs of Dover to Bankhead
We keep ranting and raving over the breaks
Panting and paving, knowing the stakes
Having the heart to see what we say
'Til God gets his way and every dog has it's day

Chorus: Wonder Brown
Take a step and make it known
Just know (just know)
What you perceive isn’t always how it plays out
Take a breath, but take your own
Oh no (oh no)
If we live amongst the beast, then these are the dog days now

Verse 3: Reflex
Stand by for tips from bystanders
Who stand biased if we don't buy their standards
Won't stand by us 'cause they don't like our chances
Yet from sidelines, they're firing right answers
Oh, I shouldn't be so prideful?
You've got a better grasp on my dreams than I do?
Well let go, Gepetto, you're grasping too hard
You're cue-card flashing when I'm reading off a different script
Full of pain and plot twists
But if I stay in my lane I've got this
When armchair critics giving taxi guidance
Jesus, take the wheel, rescue me from backseat drivers, good Lord!

Chorus: Wonder Brown
Take a step and make it known
Just know (just know)
What you perceive isn’t always how it plays out
Take a breath, but take your own
Oh no (oh no)
If we live amongst the beast, then these are the dog days now
Track Name: Complete (feat. Griffin)
Chorus: Ruffian
As The Predator deceives them
The Editor with better words feeds them
Left for dead bleeding
We devour the remains
This is a battle of complete men
We are complete, we are completement

Verse 1: Ruffian
How come it take energy to hate the bait
and a dinner on a plate of enemies we break
legs of social tape
just to add some common sense but
in the end it's total fate
cold and blank
drew a conscious frozen lake until it cracked
then we reach for faith
trying to sell and fleece the state
above the net but then it seem to fade with no respect
I call them slaves, they fit the trend
I'm complete and can't contend
When can we escape this road to fame and sin

Verse 2: Mouf Warren
I don’t know if an end exists man
even long after we pass 'cause after all your soul
enters into a different dimension when you decided to take this path that’s all
So here we are in heavenly realms
in a plush studio up in Beverly Hills
surrounded by white money like Tony Montana
except everything around me is more realer that real
And I know I'm never going to fade
guaranteed to be back another day
Look death in his eyes and fight
Why?
'Cause no one else out in this world is going to come rescue and save me
Grown man on my own two, doing my own thing I thought I told you
It’s a rare thing to know me, I complete the cypher
now let we remind you

Verse 3: Wonder Brown
Let me lace up my Adidas
God help this odd walk, wobbling, lost
coddling the cost of what this would cause
as the clock ticks down my abysmal pause
What am I waiting for?
Two steps forward is how I should paint the floor
instead I taint my tour to make sure I get a grip on a faith secure
to plot my steps how I got my breath
take it in to give it back, all that I have left
taking what was given as an opposite tempo to the time I’ve wasted trying to watch my step
So I got them asking how I’ll improve
devour the flower you push up to prove
Who’s out with the old and in with the new
choosing to keep it moving as the only true move that I’m doing

Verse 4: MotionPlus
Yo, True to that, I'm 7-3-0 without the uz or macs
with the crews intact, you could lose a back, those fools, no rules, they choose attacks
I'm ready to get it my heart is on fire, the flame is still burning the burning desire
we live and we learn and we learn to admire, the wisdom we share is the church of Messiah
Ahh, take a breath, my souls on the map when I'm taking steps
what I'm taking next, when I'm raising techs, the faith about the size of a raisinet
Amazing yet, it's hard to do, past in the past but it harbors you
ship in the sea, past the harbor too,we need to cut it off like a barber do, my my

Cuts: EF Cuttin
Going in your third eye for the styles you hear

Verse 5: Theory Hazit
It's like we clinging on to this world so tight
should have been called Klingons
we over look the enterprise trying to get our thing on
Value jobs over love and security
careers in jeopardy, we neglect honesty
Panic like it's frantic and we don't want to lose
but it paralyzes us from walking in them shoes
We put up walls and save and keep God
but that shit remind us how safe we really are
We really are insecure looking for love
in the wrong places, the world is screwed up
like a Texas mixtape, we worry and fixate
trying to fix things, making all kind of mistakes
Take a risk, at this rate we lie and dictate
and feel like why we got to find out this way, huh?
Christ lost everything that we scared to lose
just so He could be close to you now we complete

Verse 6: JustMe
It just wouldn't be complete without JustMe getting on breathing heat
you want beef then I can keep feeding meat
but you looking like you sucking on a heathen tit
Please believe me that as a collector
I got to have it all, bring it back selector
You want to have a ball, still be effective
shed light on a wall, over head projector
Truth written on it, dudes hitting on it
proof coming out the booth and spitting on it
Moving is moving so no sitting on it
cruising for bruising without getting on it
Join the gang, enjoy the pain
it ain't no point to avoid the rain
You can hide your coin where it spoils in vein
or invest in the best, go against the grain

Verse 7: Griffin
Hello Griff again, finna bend, rules with a list of friends
I'm like Scarface up in a war, cause I be dumping them off
you tripping if you thinking it's pretend
Say hello to my little friend, Christ died now he live again
Hung through it 'til the bitter end and still it be the message even if it isn't making any dividends, we forgiven and
moving on to a higher place, us folk call it Christ-side
tougher than Lugz, I'm covered in Blood, and you be stuck in a rut, you better chillin up on my side
Now that's truth for the youth, and it's a dues for the team
too cruel for the scene, how it is when the melody hit
got any credit to give, don't even pay it to me cause it's due to the King

Verse 8: Cas Metah
Soon you will see just how gruesomely this crew can feast/
It's kind of like the Hunger Games how I'm hunting kids down to drown my hunger pains/
Wells of living water nourish the thirst, so I hang above the rain/
when I sense a drought, I hit the ground and pinch a cloud
'til the pitcher's mound encouraged to curse/
Now that's what I call a spit ball/
when God completes the jig saw/
that's when the puzzle gets solved/
Got to get the map back 'cause we been lost/
Been off track but going to get back on, stand tall with our back strong/
even if we may get black balled, in the dog days expect cat calls/

Verse 9: Elias
Cat calls
Clap when the gat call
Pitfalls
Yelling at the pit boss
come back for the rent loss
One time coming in for the hip toss
Slap that, block that, slipped off
You really going to be the one ripped off
Thinking that the system going to be the lift off
Hands up now! Get pissed off!

We we we living in Babylon
and our Lord is gone and justice is gone
(come Zion) 2x

Verse 10: Reflex
Well if it's gone, then what do we have left
And what do we wait for, what do we grab next
To fill this void, and live on past death
Or feel real joy in every aspect?
Whenever we ask that, how fast does it turn awkward?
Forced to divorce thought to move forward
So we do it for the income...sweet
But how come the income is imcomplete?
We need more to pay for the mask
Cover up scars with a cape to the back
Insane how we're still chained to the past
But then hide the chains and claim we're the Master
Have to break the spell
Take off the mask and cape as well
You compete with complete? You take the L
So think you better go brace yourself...Ruff tell 'em

Chorus: Ruffian
As The Predator deceives them
The Editor with better words feeds them
Left for dead bleeding
We devour the remains
This is a battle of complete men
We are complete, we are completement
Track Name: Alone (feat. Jordan Santana)
Verse 1: Elias
Oh Lord
What am I?
What am I supposed to do?
Why do I always feel like I have to prove?
Well, I grew up in the gutter,
both feet in the mud and grime.
Stank of the sewer and the failure that followed me all the time.
Well, my daddy walked the wrong path, and I knew I had to choose.
Momma overwhelmed with all these things she had to do.
Oh Lord you know it’s hard
when your childhoods not spent on you.
And you trying to being a man
before you even understand.

Chorus 2x: Elias and Jordan Santana
Oooh child.
You don’t walk alone (you don't walk alone)
Just give him your burden
he gonna carry that heavy load (carry that heavy load)

Verse 2: Cas Metah
You've had a lot of weight on your plate
growing up in the slums, the village of snakes
makes it easy to see the reason you stayed away
from the streets and the games that the players play
You felt the pain and the bruise on your mothers eye
felt the sting of the needle when your brother died
Ain't no wonder why you feel like God is just another lie
when you lost everything you've ever loved in life
You're not alone though
You got to hold on and roll with the stones throw
Hold on bro
We all been there, we all bear losses
but only one was ever born to bear crosses
He is The Father to the fatherless
inviting you to walk in the land of His promises
and all you got to do is walk with Him
not run, not crawl, just walk with Him (walk with Him)

Chorus 2x: Elias and Jordan Santana
Oooh child.
You don’t walk alone (you don't walk alone)
Just give him your burden
he gonna carry that heavy load (Carry that heavy load)

Verse 3: Jordan Santana
Nobody carried my burden before and I don't know
just how I'm supposed to not feel alone
I been walking this road all on my own
So tell me, why am I so special
that The Sculptor would care for such a vessel?
Broken, but maybe that's what leaves me open
for somebody to pour a little hope in

Chorus 2x: Elias and Jordan Santana
Oooh child.
You don’t walk alone (you don't walk alone)
Just give him your burden
he gonna carry that heavy load (Carry that heavy load)
Track Name: Good Morning Mourning
Verse 1: Cas Metah
We came in with gauntlets, made them into omelets
stained in my optics are the pains of progress.
I know it take losses to make profits
but when nations facing conquered they playing Contra.
If you play with contraband pray you ain't a pauper
population top guns got Wall Street stocked up.
Hovering like helicopters so they can watch us
long enough to come up with a plot to stop us.
Don't even get me started on these cops and all the drama
Oscar Grant to Eric Garner
Partner that pistols not a permanent marker
got my hands up but I can't breathe in this smog, ugh.
Frustrated for the folks falling victim
to a fallen system, this friction is flinching.
Tension is wrenching the heart of my mission
hearts and minds missing, good morning mourning.

Hook: Elias
Good morning mourning (good morning mourning)
My eyes are crying
Oh Lord, no, the horror
got to cry for your sons and daughters
I reach my hand in the muddy waters
Good morning mourning, yeah

Verse 2: MotionPlus
I dream big, wipe the cold out my eye
colder than this world that we live in, why?
Time slips by, why live with regrets?
I still fear death but deaths not denied by
no man, just a cross and a promise
but no man on this earth lives honest
Honestly I cry weekly for my grandmother
she been gone since '89, that's a long number
But the love I remembers unconditional
and more than one time I thought to let the pistol pull
Self inflict, get me there where the love is hidden
and suicidal tendencies are the ones forbidden
It's a bidding war, labels own my soul, no
it's a hidden war, stable and control, no
My emotions are at def-con warning
arise with the Son singing good morning mourning

Hook: Elias
Good morning mourning (good morning mourning)
My eyes are crying
Oh Lord, no, the horror
got to cry for your sons and daughters
I reach my hand in the muddy waters
Good morning mourning, yeah

Verse 3: JustMe
Morning mourning. I started yawning
and then performing my Daily Operation
The life of a grown-up. I think I'll have a Donut
and consider that my little escape from
responsibility. The cost of villainy.
Capital Punishment is what we all face son.
A mixture of scripture, but it's hard to see The Big Picture
through the Ill Communication
Written and broadcasted, posted bombastic
on every channel, station and website
But I still got an Urge For Conscious Words,
so Eazy-Duz-It I'll be searching the night
For a Life After Death. Take my massive breath.
All Eyez On Me when I'm grabbing a mic
Open every single lock trying to be the King Of Rock
end of the day that's a Rapper's Delight

Bridge: Elias
Mother Nature cries because of us
Father Creator cries for all of us
We don't own the truth at all
we just seek a higher call
Want a higher love
but we're living in the fall

Hook: Elias
Good morning mourning (good morning mourning)
My eyes are crying
Oh Lord, no, the horror
got to cry for your sons and daughters
I reach my hand in the muddy waters
Good morning mourning, yeah
