Track Name: Handcuffed In An Armless War
Handcuffed In An Armless War

Them says we're living in Hell
so I'm praising my God
as I inhale
The same species
that created church, created jail
so I cross my fingers
and hope good hearts prevail
The root of all evil
is in some dead man's skeleton
A path cast with
guns and drugs and fake heroines
A mask passed from
nuns to thugs
and passed 'round again
Jah, protect me
Give me strength
'cause I'm
Handcuffed in an armless war
Them says the heart in art is dead
Well, me no rest 'til
the murderer's dead
We hungry, you ate
Take the food right off your plate
Away
See, we are all prisoners
We gotta be free
A mask passed from
foes to friends
and passed 'round again
Jah, protect me
Give me strength
'cause I'm
Handcuffed in an armless war
Track Name: Growers
Growers

There's something stapled to my chest
It's on the tip of my...
The tip of the iceberg
Off the summit,
I plummet
And let go
And all we had to do was let it...
Bloom
C'mon, child, give it room to breathe
Just like you said to me before,
You're so good at saying nothing
It's funny how things go
It's crazy how things grow
And take on a life of their own
And all we had to do was let it...
Bloom
C'mon, child, give it room to breathe
So let's grow
C'mon, world take it slow on me
I either say too much or not enough
Eye either see too much or not enough
And all we had to do was let it...
Track Name: No Brainer (ft. Ari Chi)
No Brainer (featuring Ari Chi)

I think I may have won the lottery
A million bucks walked in the set
I lost it, yeah you can bet
No regard for consequence
The way your curves lay in that dress
It must be summertime or Sunday
Oh, gotta keep my cool
So pardon my Chinese
But we're supposed to come in twos
You can bring me to my knees
You're no God but I believe
So wouldn't you wanna be there for someone who wants you?
Wouldn't you wanna take care of someone in need?
Wouldn't you wanna lay down with someone who fiends you?
Seems like a no brainer to me...
Ah man, this room must've jumped a few degrees
No one here would disagree
From this angle, you're a cute
Girl, this isn't breaking news
You know you got it
Just confess
Rolling those hips with
Such finesse
Oh, gotta keep my cool
So pardon my Chinese
But we're supposed to come in twos
You can bring me to my knees
You're no God but I believe
So wouldn't you wanna be there for someone who wants you?
...You know that I do
You're singing the truth
Man, we're so in tune
and I'll be there soon
to prove it you...
Wouldn't you wanna take care of someone in need?
...I will be there for you
I will take care of you
Just prove to me
that the reasons I'm necessary
aren't temporary...
Wouldn't you wanna lay down with someone who fiends you?
...The drug we've concocted
no one can stop it
I fiend for you too...
Seems like a no brainer to me
Oh, seems like a no brainer to me
Track Name: Things
Things

Reverse hysteria
in Area 813
Old news
New day, same excrement
Circling around your neighborhood,
waiting for you to come outside
Hands up where I can see them
I need you to feel the things I know
I need you to see the things
that I'm showing you
You're heaven sent
And I'm hellbent on getting out
before I lose the pieces of me
or find the things
I need to leave behind
Pushing away from the center
Just to gravitate back
Born a natural sinner
Watch me get it right back
Lost in the land we lost our innocence
New views
Same box they try to fit us in
Circling around the sky with your eyes,
waiting for you to look inside
Hands up where I can see them
I need you to feel the things I know
I need you to see the things
that I'm showing you
You're heaven sent
And I'm hellbent on getting out
before I lose the pieces of me
or find the things
I need to leave behind
Pushing away from the center
Just to gravitate back
Born a natural sinner
Watch me get it right back
Track Name: Feast of Flowers
Feast Of Flowers

Now don't go getting
All sentimental
Just tryna plant these flowers
All on your mental
Now don't go getting
All indecisive on me
Plucking out your pedals
One by one
In the midst of crisis
I know it like the back of my hand
Like commute home from work
I know it like the Florida sand
Like the tax paid at church
Like the dirt in my fingernails
My heart when it hurts
And whatever it's worth,
I know
I'm better for it
'Cause it's all good now
It's out of my hands now
It's out of my hands now
Get out of my head now, please
It's out of my hands now
Baptized in the fire we created
Removed from the situation,
I can see our conversations
Like they were written in the air
I know it like the shape of your smile
I picked that up through the years
Like the crack in your voice
When you're holding back tears
Like the blood on my fingertips
My very worst fears
So whomever can hear...
It's out of my hands now
It's out of my hands now
Get out of my head now, please
It's out of my hands now
Now don't go getting
All sentimental
Just tryna plant these flowers
All on your mental
Now don't go getting
All indecisive on me
Plucking out your pedals
One by one
'Cause, baby, it's all good now
Track Name: Comfortable
Comfortable

This is me
Building boundaries
Around what used to be my heart
Love, success, and happiness
Lord knows,
I can't tell those things apart
so if you'd be so kind
as to lead the blind
into the night that awaits us
I could make a case
Naw, better yet,
A casket
and throw in my old whereabouts
and has-beens
because now
I'm comfortable
Track Name: LG
LG

It's not the science of rockets
It's not hieroglyphics
This is the basement of the botany lab
It's Popeye's spinach
It's not the scenic route
You've read about
No cigar and brandy
This is the Eightfold Path
Blindfolded, violent, and hungry
And to think you thought
You had me figured out
I flipped the scripture
Little God
You don't need me
You know it all
So write a letter to whomever
Sold you your crystal ball
We can shake hands
But that won't change a thing,
We're watching you,
Little God
It's not a piece to your puzzle
It's not your garden variety
This is the backroom stash
The cream of necessity
it goes on and on and on
And to think you thought
You had us locked in
We broke out
And it goes on and on and on
Little God
You don't need me
You know it all
So write a letter to whomever
Sold you your crystal ball
We can shake hands
But that won't change a thing
We're watching you,
Little God
(And on and on and on...)
Nothing feels the way it used to
I don't care half as much
Nothing feels the way it used to
Little God
You don't need me
You know it all
So write a letter to whomever
Sold you your crystal ball
We can shake hands
But that won't change a thing
We're watching you,
Little God
Track Name: Somewhere Around Yesterday
Somewhere Around Yesterday

Somewhere around yesterday
I knew I'd feel this way today
Slow down
It hasn't even happened yet
Stirring up the formula
To perpetuate a moment
Euphoria, slowed down
It hasn't even happened yet
Why complicate it?
This fear of hesitation
A careful misplacement
Of the footsteps
To lead us back home
Tell my love that I've found
a place somewhere around yesterday
We're almost there
No need to slow down
Around this time, last week
I knew I'd make a strong attempt
to slow down
and it hasn't even happened yet
A million miles an hour
Mirages blurred on either side
Gotta slow down
But it hasn't even happened yet
So why complicate it?
This fear of hesitation
A careful misplacement
Of the footsteps
To lead us back home
Tell my love that I've found
a place somewhere around yesterday
We're almost there
No need to slow down
No need to slow down
I'm in control
No need to slow down
I'm in control
Track Name: The Real You
The Real You

Please hold my hand
Hold it real tight
I'll be right here
When day turns to night
Keep you real close
Nothing to fear
Everything's sunshine
Whenever you're near
Give me the real you
I want to know that it's true
Give me the real thing
I'm so addicted to
your passion
your flaws
Everything you're not
I want it all
Give me the real you
Please ease my mind
Keep heart in chest
Wearing your absence
Like a bulletproof vest
Keep you real close
Nothing to fear
Whenever it's raining,
I pretend that you're near
Give me the real you
I want to know that it's true
Give me the real thing
I'm so addicted to
Your passion
Your flaws
Everything you're not
I want it all
Give me the real you
Give me the real you
Track Name: Harmony and Disconnect
Harmony And Disconnect

No faith in me
No strength in me
I'm often thinking that my past life didn't turn out half right
I don't cry about it
We were in our early 2000's
and trippin' into trouble was the neighborhood's pastime
Right or wrong
You and I
We mimicked what the crowd did
'Cause all I wanted was some friends
All I wanted was a good time
All I wanted was some ends
To meet up in due time
All I wanted was some space
All I wanted was a sanctuary
To call my own
Perhaps, meet someone to confide in?
For a couple of seconds,
I thought it was real
Stretch the harmony
Mute the disconnect
Accept the mess we made
Yeah, you and me
I'm often thinking that my past life
Didn't turn out half right
So send me to Hell
I'll come back with the devil's head
Pick up some wine
and break some bread
'Cause all I wanted was some love
All I wanted was some genuine peace
All I wanted was some trust
Not the kind the bank could lend me
All that I've been told
I'm finding out that it all makes sense
All that I've been sold
I figured out that I paid too much
Took a deep breathe
Took a deep look
At the madness that's around me
All the madness that surrounds me
For a couple of seconds,
I thought it was real
Stretch the harmony
Mute the disconnect
Accept the debt we owe
as human beings
Pour some Jack in my poison
The hair of the dog
Wait 'til Heaven's gates open
Smoke out on the lawn
Have faith in me
Find strength in me
