Track Name: For Her
You and I got the keys...to make this life work
You and I got relief...for when this life hurts
You and I got the keys...to living right girl
Let's you and I make a right world




Me and mine chilling on the couch
Making life work,
Held down not up,
Living right first
Work to quench her life's thirst
Make her brain pop make her sight burst
She smiles when my names dropped

(she knows)

Our rainy Sunday
Could counter any some day
Fantasy of one day
We could challenge thum days
We could put our talents
Into one babe
Soon to have a son,
To teach a thing or two
About the way that love tastes
I hope your smiles passed down
And your brain too
And the way you question
Anything the sane do
I know we'll always teach him
Never be the same dude
Seek to find a truth
To really make your name you
It's the real thing
The type you teach children
The type you try to build with
Not that run of mill wish
Nothing about this usual and
Nothing here to fill in
It's you, I and him

(chorus)
You and I, got the keys to make this life work
You and I, got relief for when this life hurts
You and I, got the keys to living right girl
Let's you and I make a right world

You got the realest sense life
Since I met you I ain't thinking twice
I just know I'm thinking clear
and thinking right
I'm thinking you and I
Don't think for two we think for thrice
I thought you once my love
I always think you now my wife
Our multiplicity could benefit
The world over
I mean that honestly
Our spawn could be a world molder
Me? I'm just thrilled to hold him
I'm just thrilled to trade these chips in
For family upon my shoulders
The chips had weighed a ton
And now I'm six feet off the ground
Moving lighter than the wind
Prepared to be your truest soldier
And in case I never told you
I didn't know what living was
before life had granted me the chance to hold ya
And now we graduated
You and I picked to grow a guy
I mean a man, I mean
The newest apple of your eye
And I can make a vow to hold my post
for the two I love the most
Forever being by your side

(chorus)
You and I, got the keys to make this life work
You and I, got relief for when this life hurts
You and I, got the keys to living right girl
Let's you and I make a right world

(repeat)
Track Name: Miles Davis
You gotta be you man
It's true man
Cause you're the best human
For you
Nobody else can fill your shoes
Nobody else can write your blueprint
If they try, they're a nusence
Get rid of em
Find new friends to choose
Keep those around that
Be down for common causes
That got flaws
And know what a real life law is
The type that know truth
Comes from life's rawness
That don't see categorized people
But see broadness
The wrong people shackle you
Of your promise
The wrong people drain you
Of your fondness
The wrong people are lame
That's honest
You should never be ashamed of a thing
That's their problem
You were made of things
Greater than most
Your Mom and I made you
As a toast
A toast to the
Life we live and proudly we boast
It ain't easy
It took efforts and copious notes, but yo
We had to filter through
The do's and the don'ts
Decide for us the
Yes, no's, maybe's and won'ts
You were a yes
From the moment we spoke
And everything after
Was simply out of passion and hope, but yo

(chorus)
They don't get you?
Then bump Miles Davis
They won't let you?
Then bump Miles Davis
They forget you?
Then bump Miles Davis
Days brought to you by Miles Davis


Thoughts about you
from those that aren't you are not true
Take em, crumble them up
And then "pooof"
Know that they for nothing of you
That the choose
They believe different than their just
Victims of their ruse
They got opinions here hidden as truths
And their opinions you be bidding ado
Show em the door with the heel of your shoe
Because they're wack and they got nothing to do (cool?)
Keep your focus on the things
That make your heart pulse
That make your eyes glow
And your mind artful
Cause outta all the things
I've learned this far
Far and away the most important is
Finding love through art
It was the key into your mother's heart
The key to what brought you to be
The love of ours
And what brought life to me
In all its parts
Gave me the right to breath
And haul this heart

(chorus)
They don't get you?
Then bump Miles Davis
They won't let you?
Then bump Miles Davis
They forget you?
Then bump Miles Davis
Days brought to you by Miles Davis

Don't do so cause they said so
Do so cause you know
That what you do
Is for you though
And honest to what you know
Of who you are
And will be
Cause who you are is
What thrills me
No substitutes no fillings
Just organically you
Keep your head
And your eyes peeled
Heart open through the minefield
Life's rigged to define feelings
That you determine for you
The unlucky live in lew
Cause comfort hides the truth
So live honestly and uncomfortably
As you
Track Name: Daddy Strength
You ain't a million miles away
You ain't alone upon in a plane
You ain't alone, not a minute,
Not an hour, not a day
Not if the sun's late rising
You're my son, you're my eyes
And you're a vision in a dream
Here, sent in my disguise
Not gonna lie
That's the coolest thing I ever wrote
Cause I ain't being clever
I'm just sayin, it's whatever though
Whatever life throws at you
I'll be down to roll, granted
I got you
Like no soul upon the planet does
Man, this love
You ain't gonna miss love
You ain't ever gotta want
With this love
You're platooned up
Your back is backed with backs
That could handle the duty
To Earth back on its axis
I promise
Ever bit here is a fact
Hence my impetus
To put it to wax
This is bigger than my vision can hack
So, figured
Why not we just live it on tracks, like this, it goes

(chorus)
I got your back now, you ain't gotta back down
Roam alone, be a clone, play the background
I got your back now, you ain't gotta back down
From the womb to the tomb, to the flat ground

I wish my vocabulary
Extended a bit deeper
To better express the depth
For why I'm breathing
To better express
The wreck that they'll be seeing
(A thousand hairs to your one)
That's breaking 'em off even
Any afternoon, day break
or evening
I'll carry the weight
The tourniquet to your bleeding
The brick wall
That's surrounding your compound
I'll be all I can be for the two
You and you're mom now
You ain't ever by yourself
You ain't ever on your own
Even when you're grown
I'm in toe, picking any bones
I ain't ever losing sight
So you ain't ever losing pride
Together we're two dudes
With one life In stride
Just two dudes
Both humble and wise
Don't fret a mistake
You're my guy
Doesn't matter what the crisis
Or run in
Just flash that signal
You can trust that I'm coming

(chorus)
I got your back now, you ain't gotta back down
Roam alone, be a clone, play the background
I got your back now, you ain't gotta back down
From the womb to the tomb, to the flat ground
Track Name: Upon A Star
I wish you wins and loses
Joy amid the process
I wish you sight to see
The light through dim objects
I hope you find your own emotion
I hope you stay off from the fray
To find the message from commotion
It ain't always your first notion
I wish you the ability to stay
Omnisciently noting
Cause man,
people say the darnedest things
And if you take em at their word
You'll find your banished from hoping for dreams
It's never really
Quite what it seems
I wish energy to find
Where it connects at the seams
Cause the fabric sets
The tone for the beings
And understanding that's
The knowledge most spiritually freeing
(And may the looooord help em)
But leave him the ability to find
His own ethics and meanings
otherwise
what's the purpose of breeding
I wish you the ability to
Understanding what you're reading
I mean really, I hope there's
nothing impeding
That all wires lead to the top
To give life through their feeding
(Truth is)
If it pumps you're succeeding
Cause we're sweating and bleeding
For wishes that we believe in

(chorus)
I use to wish upon a star what I wish upon you now
More than ever I just wish it'd come true now
I'll leave this wish here in a booth
I hope to prove what good wishing can do

I wish you nothing but
Them baby blue skies, and cool nights
Where things don't go as planned
But they go right
I wish you a partner in crime
And the low light
I wish you infinite time
To get to know life
I wish you strength
And instincts to guide yo might
And that your spirit, mind, soul
All grow right
I wish you evenings that dawn
With peace
Mornings that rise with a vigor
Of desire to love and seek
I wish you vision from
Valleys to peaks
There's no tally to keep
But always rally in heat
Cause the world can't
Keep you down
That's why you're crowned
As the best damn thing that
I could ever have found
I ain't nervous, Ii don't sweat it
I'm just honored and proud
Any forum, any stage
And I'ma say it out loud
Your feet won't fail you now
I wish you strength as you stand tall
Never try to follow the crowd
Never stop to bother with cowards
Keep your mind on being you
And you'll find infinite power
Keep your mind on being you
And silence all of the doubt
I dish is out
Just so you know what I'm wishing about

(chorus)
I use to wish upon a star what I wish upon you now
More than ever I just wish it'd come true now
I'll leave this wish here in a booth
I hope to prove what good wishing can do

This is what I wish
This what I wanna see
This is where the fine line
Mixes with the minds tea
If you disagree cool
Please don't mind me
I'm just wishing you a journey
That was wished upon me
Not a journey that's
completely grind free
But a journey of the mind
unconditionally
Like a traditional G
Three piece class with a crease
Soul right living
Extra strength to the knees
Track Name: In Closing
I'm sorry it ain't perfect
Or far from
To be honest the fear
Often trumps over the fun
The lumps leave most cut up
Sputtered and undone
But I vow I will teach you how
And how come
Don't let life just step
To your one
You battle and fight by what's right
And what's love
That's your battle flag, fatigues,
And your guns
It's your belief, your tatted sleeves
And your blood
And homie, you don't shed nothing
For none
They come looking, you meet em
You leave em set to the sun
With regrets, like years of cigarettes
To the lungs
You got the song in your soul
This world is needing it sung
It ain't far fetched
It's far-flung
Not far from God's ears
But far from their tongue
They ain't bringing it fair
Brining what they've brung
And they ain't ringing no bells
That you ain't letting be rung
So son
Don't follow no crew and get strung
Be proof, be power, be present
Be young, that's love


You gotta keep your wits about ya
These kids'll out ya
They'll call you things that you believe
That they shouldn't even think about ya
and how comes
The next question
Settle for less stress
And abort any illness of intention
Two faced crooks
Of your time and your tension
Known only as
Those aforementioned
They get no name
A name's earned
It's established through actions and verbs
You got a right to be heard
But fear is a particular word
With stock based in your internal concern
So grip that
Cause it fades when you reemerge
And realize that you ain't dead
And no, that shit ain't hurt
Shoulders back, head high
Ain't living just to get by
Perusing the alley for a gally
You can get by
True best buy
The one you thrive make smile
And die a little anytime
That you neglect and let cry
The one blowin' on the dice
That you bet by
So stay focused on the force
Young Jedi
Sleep is optional
Life's a red eye
Stay loyal to your head
And kind to those for which its fed by
