Searching
2 am in my hostel bed, my eyes them red, my belly aint fed,
I got butter but I aint got bread and I’m smoking on my last cigarette.
I aint got creds I can’t make calls, got no papers I got no jewels.
Got debts up to my eyeballs who made these rules, it’s a catch 22.
Christmas soon come and I got no funds but what’s Christmas if you aint at mums.
What I’m spose to do sit here and wait for this little JSA. No blasted way,
I’m a call G and get a food on conceit or use my giro and by a 16th,
now that’s small time but I got to make p’s, I’m so hungry man I just gotta eat and 2 a certain degree,
I’m intrigued by these streets, they say misery loves company and I’m so comfy I could fall asleep but I can’t do that.
I’m surrounded by cats, filthy cats sitting in steps with cat size rats.
Yep it’s a fact I’m truly lost now, will I end up where I can’t be found.

When life hits you with issues, Makes you wanna cry and wet tissues,
Wondering who’s really with you, what you gonna do,
When it gets a dramatic, and its over the top like bad acting,
Sinking ship and you’re the captain, What you gonna do

All this abusing becoming amusing, the harsh reality becoming alluring,
The life I’m choosing won’t stop moving and I’m refusing any kind of curing.
Cause see right now this papers moving and to be honest this papers ruling.
If God say’s it’s the demon I believe him, cause what I’m doing for him you could call appalling.
But there no such things as half way crook, so I pay cash and got my seat book,
As i approach the peer i got no fear,
Men women and especially gays.
I’m getting more lost by the day, the deeper I go the harder to find my way,
I know the blair witch I seen her yesterday, she collapsed naked on the bed with a needle in her crotches
And the baby sniffles as he watches, but that aint nothing new.
He’s always sniffling, always got a cold, yea that’s what crack’l do,
Peek a boo, I seen you, doing what your people’s don’t know you do,
But neither does mind and right now I’m not sure I mind cause right now I don’t get my mind.

When life hits you with issues, makes you wanna cry and wet tissues,
Wondering who’s really with you, what you gonna do,
When it gets all dramatic, and its over the top like bad acting,
Sinking ship and you’re the captain, what you gonna do

What you gonna do when things,
Get on top just like a swing
And you tired of arguing, saying the same things
What you gonna do when things,
Get on top just like a swing
And you tired of arguing, saying the same things

The Key
OK, I can see you held it down and learnt patience,
Cause some reasons are without their explanations,
This is my song so let me explain the situation,
But wont air your business out girl, cause that’s a bait ting,
I seen you at the station like its work your going,
Money have fe mek so just keep doing what you’re doing,
It’s crazy cause together we could have made g’s,
Cause I did and truthfully you bright like me,
The only real difference is you slyer than me,
Your need for attention makes you attract the beef,
Ironically I use to say you were a bad cow,
You a funny little girl with a funny little style,
I know you heard the truth I know you read between the lines,
I might circle the truth but I will not tell a lie,
I remember the time I came your yard with a knife,
I don’t wanna tek life but I would of tek life,
But im bigger than that now I can walk from a row,
My days on road has shown me life is like gold,
And plus this world is big enough for us both,
I know you was down I also know that you coped,
I hope that mean you learnt to slow your roll,
And keep your mouth closed,
A proper attitude is better than fancy close,
So as the chapter close that’s how the story goes,
As I’ve grown I’ve learnt that friends turn to foes.

CHORUS
I heard you got your yard now
Fully grown now
It’s not an armshouse
Cause I ovastand
Ovastanding is the key key
Ovastanding is the key key
I heard you got your car now
I seen you round town
It’s not a armshouse
Cause I ovastand
Ovastanding is the key key,
Ovastanding is the key key

BRIDGE
I don’t really care what you feel like
I aint got no time to waste on you
I don’t really care what you wanna say
You can keep talking till your blue in the tooth

I’m getting older now starting to make sense of it,
Seeing the signs reading minds like hypnotist,
Understand the figures like arithmetics and my guess is,
People are bad mind,
Insecurity breads hate it’s a fact find,
In fact im sure it’s incurable,
Some people positive while some people are negative and totally oblivious to the harm they cause,
For every Malcom X there is a president bush,
For every ambitious soul, there’s a coach potato,
Real said turn off the arcade man the games over,
This is the takeover taking the haters over,
Maybe if they had something else to do they wouldn’t watch you,
Too busy with they bizz but now with kids having kids it’s gonna get worse than this,
Only just realising what mama said,
By the sweat of mans brow he shall eat bread,
Stay focused on your path like a vegan dread,
And remember they hate to see you smile,
Your unique style, your everything there not,
If you sitting in a room with darkness and the lights come on
You’d have to cover your eyes, overstand the lines,
Check the paragraphs speaking in parables,
Call this the manual for caging animals the haters.

Better Days
Im slowly billing up a savings every day
Although it’s hard to save when you getting low pay
I stop shotting so my days are kinda quite
I quite like it there less violent with less lyings
I put in extra effort change up the gear on em
I got the sails up and I’m steering em
Im staying clear of em you know who I’m talking bout
It’s unnecessary for their names to leave my mouth
Words are power so I manifest the thought
Everything I think is what I thought
Everything I thought is what I feel
Everything I feel is what I am
A woman with nuff tings brewing yea
I got a half cup of hope and im sippin slow
No more standing on the road cause that shit is old
I got no time for time wasting time is precious i only got time for studio session now.

CHORUS
Change in my mind move so consistently
Tend to find I spend my time much more productively
Use to try and exercise my immortality
Change contains to better days
But I forgot that my blood could clot my heart could stop

See, I been spending quite some time thinking bout life
And I been checking a couple things I need to get right
I been acting loose and not in every way
But in enough ways to put me in the wrong place
Or maybe the right place cause lessons learned in mistakes
And I been making some stupid decisions
Things were I was thinking man I wasn’t thinking
Wasn’t analysing checking the big picture yo
Same script but just a different cast but if I re-write the present thats the past
I’m dealing with the cards I’m dealt but im dealing with different cards
To be in a different place ain’t hard
Or at least not as hard seem anyway
So if you don’t see my face around the way just pray
Im doing better things and hopefully you can find them things inspiring seen

Im trying to hold down the smoke and the drink
And I’m trying to get in the gym amongst other things
When my phone rings I’m scared of answering
Cause the pull of the past is a proper hype ting
It’s so alluring but I’m maturing so when I travel in on the train I buy a ticket now
And when I’m ordering a drink I just sip it now
Im in no rush to go nowhere fast cause
Life seems when hell of a task so I better buckle up and sink the clutch on it fast quick

Spinnin
This is for the tat on my wrist this is for the black of my fist
This is for the s in my lisp this is for my beating heart in my chest on the life yes
Life aint for the swift but for those who can endure it so i hold it with two hands im moorish
And I answer every time it is calling and you can see it in my aura
You can tell I’m a soldier you can see the strength in my eyes and I hope
You can feel the strength in my vibe cause sometimes I get tired
Cause its hard out here yo,
See it all boils down to the have and the have not’s the things that you have or you aint got
Some people are overweight some people aint got no food on the plate
You can act like you don’t know or don’t wanna know what’s past Pluto
But if you heads in the pillow and your buts in the air, they gonna put it right there yo.

CHORUS
The world keeps spinning changing the lives or people in it
Nobody knows where it will take us
But if hope it gets better better better

Everyday read the metro soaring bills and high petrol
House prices and inflation and I’m not too sure what’s happening
Cause they say these are tough times and I say you aint gotta tell me
Cause I’m tired of opening the papers I don’t even watch the TV
But no matter what happens I’m still an artist
Attached so close mosses cant part this
Hercules aint got the strength to make me let go of these beats
Cause a long time now I been doing this
Writing songs since way back school kids
And the only thing that’s changed is the weather I’m still holding it together hey
You can act like you don’t know or you don’t wanna know what’s past Pluto
But if you heads in the pillow and you buts in the air they gonna put it right there yo

BRIDGE
One day I know that it
It will get better music is healing
I love the feeling
One day all people will be all equal
Until that day comes i’ll just be singing my song

Go Then, Bye
I watched you leave and it was hard to breath,
My chest got tight like I got asthma and I don’t even smoke like that
But how can I take you back when, we don’t even work like that
We can’t see eye to eye when your here and when you not here things are unclear
The hardest thing is to say goodbye and even harder than that is to not start crying
My strength has not become my weakness cause I wish the truth was a lie
My head says no but my heart says yes,
My head tells me we aint having this
I hate you and love you at the same time, I got pain and love in the same rhymes
But I’m not the one with the ex, that won’t stop ringing and sending txt
And you won’t even tell her to stop, rather save her feelings than make me vex
This is my fault shouldn’t known from the start, she wouldn’t stop opening her legs
But that’s what I get for going to good sex, good sex
Those pretty eyes tell such silly lies, you never say what you mean only what you want
And I hope for the best and end up looking dumb
This is so much harder than it needs to be, if I truly love you and you love me
Then that’s all that should matter, you know what, it doesn’t even matter cause

CHORUS
I don’t want this to break my stride
I don’t want this is to make me cry
Its best you leave now ok aright
Go then Go then Bye

I can’t see you face on facebook cause were not friends on facebook
But still I wanna know if your cool and what your status says you been up too
Cause I was the one that said it couldn’t carry on it was messing with my head
It was getting dread I was getting pains in my chest if you know what I mean say yes
And I really wish I never met you never wish I never caught feeling when I kiss you
16th floor of the Hilton singing just can’t get you out my mind
And know I got you out my life im looking around like yea he’s nice
Real nice but he isn’t you, you could take him back to school
You seem to know everything that I like, like your programmed to satisfy my every delights
And your mind was right the right mind set and that’s so hard to come by I wouldn’t let you
Into my life unless you came correct but you stole my heart like a thief
Emptied me out like drum but I’m not silly or dumb so take you Xbox and go long
Those pretty eyes tell such silly eyes you never say what you mean only what you want
And I hope for the best and end up looking dumb but if I hope for the worst I end up looking wrong
This is so much harder than it needs to be, if I truly love you and you love me
Then that’s all that should matter you know what it doesn’t even matter cause

Daddy's Little Girl
Daddy I think I love you cause I hate you so much that I must love you
I put mommy above you
cause she played her position and loved me unconditionally like you never have
I wasn’t that bad I wasn’t no Damien child the only way I could have been is cause you birth me
Hurt me scarred me so deeply I have trouble committing to any man cause I think he’s gonna leave me Like you left me and mommy every birthday to see you would make me so happy
One day in the year and you couldn’t come check me to busy to come check me
The way you affect me I’m constantly fighting to not affect me
I thought it was cool it didn’t bother me I only realise like last week
I was talking to Shorts about slush puppies he mentioned my father and were was he
Subconsciously my head tilted like a lover that’s been jilted
I speak painfully whenever I think of you my eyes start to squint whenever I vision you
Like the visions I see are visions of evil
But still I could be wrong in my visions of what your like
But I can’t really remember what you look like

Chorus
I am daddies little girl
That makes me tough
He never held my hand
I am daddies little girl
That makes me tough
I hope you can understand

Have you never considered your old age flipping through the papers for the racing page
Looking at pennies to put a bet up in the bookies
Looking at women but too old for the nookie
Can’t get a cookie out of any cookie jar your spars them pass on long time star
Wish you could spar with the spar them ca white rum by yourself it just cant get you charged
Looked upon by youths who pass you and barge like old man move these premonitions I give to you
Without any charge that’s free old boy like a hug from you old boy
Like a kiss any the cheek saying how was school old boy or happy birthday me old boy
But still you’re an old boy grey hair fill your head like an old man
When your hands them a shake who’s gonna hold your hand
I guess it will be one of my eight siblings yea eight six different mothers straight
I didn’t grow with them I hardly know them my flesh and my blood to me that’s heart breaking
I wanna link them I hope they patience and ovastanding
To know when I’m standing face to face with them I feel abandoned
I see my father in the eyes and I just can’t stand him

Bad Boy
You can catch him sittin knowing that he’s sinning
But knowing sinning gon give him what he’s always missing
He starts to bill a spliff and slowing taking out the seeds
Slowing calculating how to perculate them p’s
He’s made a couple g’s selling weed and selling e’s
And to get it selling these he certainly moves neat
He rides his moped round the whole ends from dusk till dawn
He’s got the weed head a pills heads lighting up his phone
He’s got a ratchet that he loves to flick open and close
Hoping one day that it’s gonna buss somebody clothes
Nobody really understands him nobody knows what’s in his heart cause it never shows yo
He’s got a dead beat dad, that beats his mum real bad
His mum sits home all day drinking and smoking fags
His mum said he aint shit probably do jail time and that’s if he makes it to 25

CHORUS
Bad boy he’s a bad boy

Catch him laying on his back getting head from cat listening to new rap like 50 and that
Word for word reciting like he’s the real writer
Or shadow boxing in the mirror like a real fighter
The reason he’s hurt is now lost like a lighter
The pain in his heart gets him drunk as mother yo
He gets another call then puts it in his balls
He passes the poster of 2pac on his bedroom wall
He don’t really stop and cotch with the man dem
He said them man are waste man them man are loose cannons cause
They got the rebors he’s got the real ting
He got the 38 with the grip and the case to put it in
He’d kill for his kicks or his whips or his friends
He’d kill for his dad even though he hates him
He’d kill for the reason of killing cause killings in
And he’d kill if opportunity rings

CHORUS

See his priorities are messed up, if he doesn’t realise that then his luck’ll be up
Cause he wants to be remembered like Tony Montana
But he’s forgetting that he’ll end up dead like Tony Montana
Life is a game and he’s playing to lose he aint knowing the rules thinking they don’t apply to him
But its love yea and it’s the love that will keep him
Keep him filled to the brim although he’s living in sin
His mind believes he’s a product of the things he’s sees
Nobody told him he’s a free as the air he breathes
As simply as it sounds this is history he aint the first and he won’t be the last
Cause I’ve seen a few going nowhere fast yea
I’ve seen a few going nowhere fast
A life upraised is a life unsure always looking for help but expecting closed doors that why he’s

CHORUS

Wheels in Motion
I walk the night street with lost souls
We converse in common codes
So unload our desires and wishes
Sparking spliffs is more than a stimulant its how assimilate
Like at the back of the class charge it’s only us
Teaches don’t like it but they don’t fight it instead they ignore it
We get no grades but don’t look fazed when the exams come
It’s like whatever act like it don’t matter only mummy’s face make you teeth chatter
And I remember when they told me I’ll never make it
Too smart for my own good I get rude when they use there authority to abuse
I’m born to prove that rules were made for the obedience of fools
And guidance was made for the wise so I get advice for those who live full and colourful lives
And think twice while watching what they tell I on they teli-vision yea
I see the way they pronounce the nouns
And listen to the way the vowels sound
Subliminal messages are allowed and executed by executives
Who throw pennies to beggars at London Bridge them is hypocrites

Those wheels are in motion
Those wheels keep on turning
Those wheels are in motion
Those wheels keep on turning

I walk the day streets in odd clothes with a cupboard full of new clothes that cost loads
But if you new the real me then you would no so
Old habits are now so so sales don’t excite me like the use to
I find myself excited by sunsets but don’t see them much
I’m use to cold months and its getting chilly now
I’m born and bred in south in a cook food house
My granny use to send a plate of food for the neighbour
But now I argue with neighbours for music played loud
And their kinky behaviour can be heard in my house
But build a house on a house you take the privacy out
Move the poor people in and then the rich move out
The working class keep the system moving but seem to be systematically loosing
Given no choices who can be choosing they saying use your vote
But I’ve checked out the parties and I’ve looked around
So if I vote for a choice then will my vote count
I am the silent vote so hear my voice now
Try and digest the truth but don’t choke now and with the truth I bless this food

I got the magic touch the magic potion
And nothing powerful like words spoken
All together now the wheels in motion
All together now the wheels in motion

Live & Learn
Life is learn live that’s all it is
I been from school to kicked out sixth form to kicked out
Mums to kicked out doors don’t open much
It’s more like a bum rush I’m quick to throw thumps
I’m tired of the kicking come and sweet this
I’m not crying but I’m afraid to show pain I let it rain and nourish the soil I’m growing everyday
I’m like genesis and it begin with this
From the womb to the tomb I’ll be writing in my room
Inspiration I’m looking but it will come soon
Cause I notice I’m affected at the site of full moons
As is above so is below as I get the call I’m ready to go I pick up the phone and
Let the lyrics be my speech therapy and let it all be married to the melody and let it carry me

I been working round about 3 months and
It don’t feel like I’ve achieve much its
Not that its wrong but it don’t feel right in front of my computer I’m ready to take flight
I know it’s not just me we all want more flooded with the daily task that we ignore
If I could I’d let the sea caress my shore I’d give praise to the wind and the sum I’d adore
Cause under the full moons blossom black orchids bloom
In the bottom of bare barrels were theres barely room
Cause in towns were shots like cartoons for everyone that’s dropped one will get through
It’s the balance of life the equilibrium
In this game of life I am just another one

Sometime life moves slow like the hour hand
But the hour hand determines the time and I
Definitely determine my life small steps or big strides right
And I might be under pressure daily
Cause money keeps on hiding from me
It’s funny even though the jokes on my happiness is free check the irony
But things must get better after every storm comes good weather
After every tear drop comes a release that’s why I’m head over heel for these beats
I love these words rhythm and melody
Its heaven on earth forget what you heard its heaven on earth forget what you heard

Working Weak
The screams from my alarm scares the sleep from me
It’s my sleep thief it steals dreams from me
It’s an invention invented with the intention of compelling
The most innocent of women to start swearing
I got a word with four letters to describe all the bullshit I heard on these four days of work
Jackie from HR is soon to give birth so there backed up like brick wall or black boys on a curb
Or at least that’s why I heard anyway outside in the smokers haunt earlier today
Until light rain landing right on my b&h the water that wetted it made it hard to inhale
Four minutes more life is what a smoker would say like Jackie in admin who drinks 2 litres a day
I know this because a little game I like to play
I waste time and gaze at the water cooler but today is my bestest day of the week so far
It starts with f and ends with liquor
For tonight we laugh we joke and play hard

CHORUS
Every day it is the same show my boss is an a hole but I’m on the pay role so I guess I’ll just stay

Can I tell time is what he know wants to know
I’m suppose to start at nine but its nine two
But it’s not my fault it’s the fault of Blair cause I went to the bus stop and there weren’t no bus there
So I went to the train station and guess what I saw
People doing kung fu just to get through the doors
Started fighting cussing and pulling hair and you know that I’m farse so I was staying there
But now he’s looking at me like I’m a liar but if he calls me that then I will get fired
Cause even though it’s true I won’t except that no name calling that was in my contract
But I’m a good worker file all my files on time
Don’t get my files mixed up with files that’s not mine
Printed on both sides are the correct codes
And if he act like he don’t know the I’ll make him know
But today is my bestest day of the week by far
It starts with an f and ends with liquor for tonight we laugh we joke and play hard

Buddy Love
Your tender touch is a must you got me paralysed
All I can do is curve my back and close my eyes
If our love had a soundtrack it be made from sighs
Produce written and arrange on a sweet vibe
Complete my sentence like a set of twins our love evoke a message like the new testament
My love medicine and I aint trippin its pure love I’m giving
You aint just my lover but you my bredrin
You, your such a vivrant thing so full of life your like a vivrant thing
You bring me to life you got me doing mad things
You cloud my mind like I been smoking
Your the very reason that I believe in love if I believe enough than I can learn to trust
And on the way there I let you beat it up
Not speaking literally it’s just a matter of speech

CHORUS
You are my buddy, you my buddy
You are my buddy, you my buddy
And I think I’m falling for my buddy
I think I’m falling for my buddy
He is my buddy he my buddy
He is my buddy he my buddy
And I think I’m falling for my buddy
I think I’m falling for my buddy

Our current affairs are matters for the mind
When I’m with you I have no concept of time
I can speak my mind my chakras realign
You ignite the spark in the hottest part of me
You touch the realms of speech I speak in tongues
And when we ready to come we come one
I laugh a lot you bring me so much fun you tell me that you lucky but I’m the lucky one
Cause I’m a different type of chick a shift brick chick
And I’m used to rolling with brothers who cock sticks
Love for me is such an armshouse ting cause the outside forces means it stays a fling
But its happening and I feel so alive for the very first time you make me wanna swear
Make me wanna jump from the front to the rear
Pull up the hand brake and we can do it right here

CHORUS

My buddy, my buddy buddy look what we started, started started
I get the call and I’m living on the phone
Cause we be on the phone till six in the mourning
Talking all day and loving all night pure argument I’m a give and them argument me like
Cause I’m an mc and I appreciate lyrics and he appreciate the way I give it

Finish This Album
My quiet observations on the bus city people lost trust
Maudleys out patients are shouting with the pavements
They looking rough can’t get to grips so they end up looking worse than shit
Maybe if I can see who there talking too I might talk to them to so they can prove
The spirit never lies but before I get to try the clouds open up and let god cry
Why is this white lady nervous cause 3 black youths come on so she checking were her purse is
Make me feel nervous like they aint my country like they don’t really want me
But mummy always love me I never had a daddy it was me and my mummy
Mummy was my daddy I can either cry or see it as funny
How you can have a child and then just leave
Now I’m walking around with my heart on my sleeve cause I’m effected anytime anybody leave
You can see my scars and hear my silent screams
I been reading books to analyse my dreams and to me it seems
The only chance we get to make sense of it is when we put our heads down a little bit
That’s why I’m spittin it cause each one teach one and you can take it how you want don

CHORUS
Right now I got a lot of work to do
I gotta smooth out my edges
Eat more vedges
Listen to my elders
Vibe with my peers
Confront my fears and
Finish this album
Right now I got a lot of work to do
I gotta represent the youth
Speak more truth
Eat more fruit
Get wise with my years
Confront my fears and
Finish this album

But it seems I get side tracked it’s like a mind trap I get a call real late bout were the foods at
Cause certain man a certain place got certain food to taste so my Nikes are laced
And I was never really one to stay awake through a working day for them little bit pay yo
This nine to five is just killing me slowly but quitting is for quitters so I wait until they fire me
But now no one will hire me cause I got more lies in my CV than a pro’s had STD’s
When will they see I was born to reign entrapment is my pain I need to feel alive again
I need a man that compliments my stride ovastand I’m this way until I die
Has ambitions of his own so ovastand i don’t wanna be alone I just need a little time in my zone
This one goes out to my shotters in the alleys were all brothers and sisters were all family
All my sisters trying to raise there babies all the youth man with court cases crazy
It’s like the smarter you are the bigger your worries stupid people are lucky trust me
This one goes out to my people with ambition I’m still learning I’m still trying but for now

Honesty is courage and since I got the heart of a lion then there’s no sense in lying
I portray my life over violins no matter what it brings least I’m being real
When I look at my future I fear failure I fear the fact that you might not like me
I know I’m skilled but just maybe slightly what if my light don’t shine so brightly
I’m scared of that I’m telling you the truth I’m scared of that
What if the doctor said you couldn’t have children
What if the system they tried to topple what I’m billing better living for all my ghetto children
And I don’t mean were you live I mean your state of mind
Cause ghettos not just a place ghetto is a vibe
And I don’t need no boastie words or complicated flows
If I know what I gotta do then I flow
But sometimes I get tired sometimes I lose faith I guess that’s the reason that we got to church
Cause when you at the bottom of the barrel it hurts need something to believe in and God works You think spiritual is just hocus pocus what you really saying is you have not noticed
Inside us all is a silent protest you can acknowledge or ignore but me

Speech Therapy
I made some mistakes in my life that I’m not proud of see
And I hope that doesn’t mean now I’m trying it will be harder for me
I been hurt and its not an excuse but it’s a reason
It’s like some things happen in life for a lifetime or a season
And I’m just now learning how this world really works
There’s a law that says you get back what you put forth
All this running around doing nothing aint good for me man
Its stupidity so this mirrors up and it’s looking at me
I’m sorry mum for all the times that I made you cry
And its been said before in songs but you are my life
So if you really wanna move away and not work so hard
How can I tell you know this is my blessings mum
And you don’t have to worry about me I’m doing music now
It’s the truth it’s from my heart I hope it makes you proud
I haven’t made you proud in such a long long time
That’s why I’m gonna stand by gran as long as I’m alive
Nobody’s gonna hurt her even though there trying
And nobody’s gonna hurt you ever as long as this sun shines
And hell would have to freeze over before I take that back
This is my speech therapy, this isn’t rap

I’m not there yet I’m still trying to fix my faults
Trying to pick sense from nonsense that’s what I was taught
So many roads I’ve walked I’ve learnt so much so many thoughts
Bout who I really wanna be I guess it’s now I’m sure
I just wanna be love it takes a lot to say that
Cause I don’t wanna be judged please don’t judge me wrong
Even though I judge my father through a whole song
He’s just a man I need to be mature and understand
Frenchie stay on this earth longer please
I can’t believe your dying I can keep from crying
You mean a lot to me I owe you this whole album
I owe so many this album I owe the world man
I use to think the world owed me that’s why I gained nothing
Use to feel sorry for myself man I tell you something
The day I changed my life is the day I learned pain is love
What I went through is my strength and that’s what keeps me up
So I’ll keep this fire burning lighting up my life
And to everyone who believes in me I’ll do you right
Starting here today with these words on this paper back
I understand this is my speech therapy this aint rap

Live for the Message
Live for the message, no gain without pain
It’s all about wisdom more precise with the aim
Finger on the trigger, the metaphor is strength
I keep a watchful eye like cameras on the ends
But my hands are tied my job is entertainment
I won’t promote the things I wouldn’t put my name with
Honesty is proud so we fly it like the sparrows
I’m trying to get the knowledge luminated like the pharaohs
And I promise that I’d say it all on the right track
But you pushed back when the know you on that
But no one I love is a liar cut from the same yard of cloth as my mother
Cut from the same scars we get from one another
I always been a lover I always been a fighter
I always been one step ahead of the others
I always had the courage to do what I want.

I and I live for message
I and l know it only helps
I and I live for the message
Spiritual wealth

Live for the message hold a medi just to cope
we reason with the fam while we holding onto hope
Letting go of hype unless it’s a certain night
‘cause a little fun is fair when you live a full life
we all want the belly leave nothing but the carcass
Spartans the man them what I spar wid
smarter the chicks I’m around
‘cause you can waste time putting energy in clowns
See we don’t really care what them gyal a wear
or the way they do their hair that thinking is small
I prefer to think big my sight line is tall
when I got off my knees I was 20 feet tall
these basics are the logistics to not become a victim of the things that aint realistic
The pressure is more powerful than peer pressure it’s ridiculous
I mean that shit is…fucking ridiculous.

I and I live for message
I and l know it only helps
I and I live for the message
Spiritual wealth

I live for the message I live for the rhymes
watch where I’m living for the sign of the times.
Hard to tell the difference between truth and lies
it seems common sense is less common than it likes
I keep asking questions won’t be satisfied
until they taking away innocence lives
War is money yes money is nice but money is worth less than a productive life The body aint build for the worthless life
so I’m in the gym trying to get mines right
‘cause I have been foolish, I have abused, I often still do it but I’m only human
certain things are slave food for the mind, pig’s tail
Not good for the body, chemtrail
I decided I’d rap without fear and if that fails
I guess I’m get push to the back, ponytail

I and I live for message
I and l know it only helps
I and I live for the message
Spiritual wealth

Shawshank Redemption
You notice, you so focused on the things they don’t do or don’t do for you
You said they have not grown, not like you
but forgetting that you still got growing to do too
And simple fact, is you suppose have a future together so you work with that
I said you wasn’t focused, but now look at you so focused
Somebody else seeing progress, ‘cause they had patience
And I was tired of waiting, but you weren’t tired of waiting
‘Cause you put with me I should of put with you too
Now Im sitting here saying how much care for
sitting here sipping on something saying I’m missing you
And all the while you was you waiting full of frustration
Holding you at arms length for ages
I’m kind ashamed to say it, I gotta live with as payment

I never called
And you were my only
Wounds are raw
Now I’m lonely
I gave up sure for unsure

I was a fool for loosing you slowly
Letting you walk away from me
I gave up sure for unsure

Something had to give to you had to live
So you letting go was really the best thing
You did it for yourself I can see that yes
Thinking bout my own selfishness less
Would have been better for us, I brought nothing but fuss
We debated about were we taking this life
I lied to you now I cry for you
Cause my pride told me that I wanted more than you
But wanty wanty can’t get and get and getty getty nah want it
Foundation wasn’t strong that’s I fell of it
The promise I made to you wasn’t honest
Too smart for myself so I lost the profits of you
Things that I do make me question my sanity
Chasing the one that will never be right for me
I’m kinda of ashamed to say it
I gotta live with that as pain meant

I never called
And you were my only
Wounds are raw
Now I’m lonely
I gave up sure for unsure

I was a fool for loosing you slowly
Letting you walk away from me
I gave up sure for unsure

My ego’s amazing
Always gets in situations
Like this cause I am fly
So I just let you walk by

Wasn’t keen on staying
Now I ended with Nathan
And Nathan gives nothing
I get nothing from Nathan

Studio Backpack Rap
Wanna hear him rap, he do it drop of a hat
It’s all in his bag, studio back pack rap
They, they call it, studio back pack rap
They, they call it, studio back pack
She can hear the beat from the sound of her feet
When she reach of the street
She plug it into it
they call it, they call it studio back pack rap
They, they, they call it, studio back pack rap

He rocking with the laptop, Macbook Pro
Cracked version of Logic but he soon Pro Tools
True, Cubase kinda old school
Although he got the kicks that are old school
I can see him, as he gaze at the ceiling
He got that sneaky feeling he’s gone give it to the nation
His biggest inspiration is his own imagination
‘Cause when it comes to rules, he don’t have the patience
So he got the USB keyboard that’s fresh a bigger man woulda say
“hot of a de press”
He be bless, he does with finesse
he damn near molests, he should arrested
He rocking hard neck breaking to the beat
Head phones head down like a lesbian
He’s on his wa wa ones having so much fun
He’s a new age thespian

Wanna hear him rap, he do it drop of a hat
It’s all in his bag, studio back pack rap
They, they call it, studio back pack rap
They, they call it, studio back pack
She can hear the beat from the sound of her feet
When she reach of the street
She plug it into it
they call it, they call it studio back pack rap
They, they, they call it, studio back pack rap

Internal mixing desk, external hard drive, eternal concept she bad
She got the bright colour high tops with the long bob
She got the future of the world on her iPod
Her plug-ins are good loving
That’s why she got a banging ass beat in the oven, turn it up
Can’t get enough, cant, can’t get enough
She knows the words to the world’s best lyrics
“It was all a dream”
She used to read Smash Hits Magazine
But now she smashes crashes on the keys
Kicks on quantize just like woola
And mix that one time she is a star yea
She rocking hard neck breaking to the beat
headphones head down like a lesbian
She’s on his wa wa ones, having so much fun she’s a new age thespian

Wanna hear him rap, he do it drop of a hat
It’s all in his bag, studio back pack rap
They, they call it, studio back pack rap
They, they call it, studio back pack
She can hear the beat from the sound of her feet

Sun Dog
There’s work to be done, daydreams mean I sleep less easy
Restfulness makes eyes more dreary
The voice on my shoulder says sleep when you’re dead get out the bed
2am, Mac Pro typing again freestlying again
until I get flow that swoops like strings
and the chord change moves me and soothes me
this aint for the soulless only the soulful souls can really feel this
The cloth that I’m cut with, those I that I grow wid steam fish eat wid it
I see visions in the ceiling, lying on my back on bed I’m reeling in my sanity
‘cause I break down the barriers they put on me
More and more when it come to achievement so many more yes I can feel it
Sometime I hate this these creative rapist test my patience
talk beyond they stations and they say that its the truth
but all know I cant see no proof
So now my life is yours I’m becoming a caricature
‘cause the aim is to get it like pop but the company you keeps is important
So I prefer to be in the company of su’tin much realer
I used to roll with shottas and peelers so what I look like hitch up with them
I read books on the secrets, I study the world
I know what they putting in the water
Telling the truth gets harder the higher I climb
the closer to the top the more they lie
I’m too sensitive ey

What am I running from where am I running too
I can’t see its too bright
The message is getting through I’m hearing it calling me
I been waiting up all night
I see it in my visions I got it in my sights
The more I chase the more I come alive
I’m a sun dog, I’m a sun dog, I’m a sun dog, I’m a sun dog

Every goal reached is another one set I never take check there’s seeds to sow yet
I wont live down to expectations set we carry torch a bun a fire pon dem
I live for cause not because it’s in passion rules style I bring
With paper and pen I’ll pull ‘em in, and no parliament can change this percent
so it puts me in a pensive mood
when I purposely choose to pursue my own rules.
I’m a problem it’s probably true but what should I do red pill or blue pill
How can I live if I don’t do what I feel, it fall through if the foundation aint real
That’s one on the 80’s they was on the kill bill, riots
It’s still like that in Myatt’s Field, tired
our desires wont lie dormant forever but they think they are so clever
‘Cause all we do is watch the box, watching the box watch us
Rewired to ignore injustices that happen to just just-us
They marvel in marvelousness of their greediness
We tired of this so if it’s on us then we be ready to buss
I’m locked and aimed and its all the same if you rocking wid us
Cause if we aint free then its war mind state rapers
Them imaginary bars cant hold my heart there’s no replace off, hey

X Marks the Spot
We had so many conversations
About your ex it’s amazing
I know must know more about that girl
than her next-door neighbor
You only stop when I rolled my eyes
Looking at me like you can’t see why
Come on babes you must be blind, it’s clearer than cling flim
From her sing sing that you ain’t over that ting
They must be acting you must want an Oscar
Are you imposter ‘cause obviously you still love her
And probably you still want her but I won’t stop ya
This is like the army be the best you can be
Spread your wings and fly, go ahead and live your life
I wont stop you that’s no lie

Am I being silly am I imagining it, I can’t TELL
Su’utin aint right and I’m not feeling it, can’t you tell
Lets put it on the table, let’s be honest with it, Can you tell
I think we’re over and I think you’re asking for it, Can you tell

We can never be
You can never
It’s plain to see
That your not over your x x x x x
Your still in love with your x x x x x
That’s why you’re my x

certain situation are making me wonder,
If you getting it in I mean undercover
I’m too fly to be your lover
If and your x aint quite over
Maybe we over ‘cause I don’t want more
Cause maybe im just feeling like I want another
Maybe pushing you away like covers
You making hot man, gimmie some space
Look in my face, do I look like I type to be playing the game
I was’nt born big, I know all the tricks from Brixton to Kingston
Make your link son, it’s on
There is the exit, be quick son
There are too many that wants some
Message me on facebook, random
Maybe I should get some

Angel Wings
Supa dupa high I’m the lord of flies
The bridge that holds the spec in front of my eyes
These words are mine you can try not pay it no mind
but if you paying forward protect with your life
I’m breaking the barriers not here to wasting time
I’m setting the trends its long for waiting in line
Still got my half cup
I been fed up
But now I feed my truths nourish the young cubs
I stay tuned like Korg progressing to a major chord
Depression was the main course stress was the starter
I used to be so angry and hurt with my father
But when my granny died I cried for him and cried for me
And when I hugged he felt human not like a monster
So when I think of him I’m calmer and much maturer
And when I see my brothers and sister I feel like we’re soldiers
Were on the same team we fight the same wars
Got the same scars gotta climb the same walls
Mirror image of me I know my people love me
I feel a tap on my shoulder sometime I know it’s Frenchie
I know these writers and bloggers wanna hate me
Cause I said that I would win they called me arrogant
But missed the fact that I laid out my destiny
So matter what I do in my future cant take away from me
I’m still learning I’m still trying I got my angel wings I aint afraid of flying

I aint afraid of flying
I aint afraid if falling

I keep having recurring dreams it’s the same theme
Always the same cast it’s just a different scene
I’m in elevator keep up but going too fast
Or in a car with some obstacles I can’t get past
I don’t need a doctor to tell me the reason for it
The answer are always stitched in like the seams on it
And so we dream of so I guess we’re living our dreams
So I guess that means our dreams are our reality
But bloggers keep pushing my buttons for controversy
Acting like I’m not human like I aint got feelings
But where I come from we react we don’t run
So anyone who thinks I take that is so wrong
Know my battles aint with myself they with everyone else
We are soldiers the wars never cease
It’s just now always got fresh kicks in feet
And money in the bank
God knows I deserve it
I put my heart in this and shared it with the public
Never told you no lies never acted like I was perfect
I will not live a hermit
And we afraid of no journalist
We are og’s we aint afraid of no police
Used to put in work pumping Tupac Makaveli
Now I fine dine 5 course and I fill my belly
I sip on Sancerre and look at what I done already
I’m so proud I’ll climb a mountain and shout
And I’ll never throw in the towel I’ll never throw in the towel, yo
I’m still learning I’m still trying I got my angel wings I aint afraid of flying

Blaze up a Fire
Some of us seeing what we know to become clear
How many predictions come to pass this year
Did they know that North Africa would erupt
But what we know they don’t know that’s how they keep it from us
So I burn a fire from the courts to the cops
Spiritual wealth is what fills my cups
I use this hip hop to profess my love
I am not a pop star I’m a mother fucking thug
I’m a fiend for the truth, drugs
Getting lean off of liberty, pub
You see me
They let the wrong one in when they let me in
You understand what I’m saying are you hearing me
I hear what they saying with the undertones
They telling me they went to Iraq to help them grow
They’re so arrogant and so obvious
They truth pours from the ground in Fallujah
You see me

Sometimes you need to blaze up a fire
Let it be known for the record, your honor
Sometimes you need to blaze up a fire
Before the case gets settled, your honor

Let the fire blaze in various ways
be it the road, be it the stage let the flames stay high
Demystify the myths they fly
Tell lies pon an I with their Tel lie Vision
subliminal programmes for old mans in prison
hold hands with the -ism that truly ain't him
paint him taint him decimate him  
reduce to a fraction of flesh and skin 
we sing riddim for the culture sculpt precisely
devilish encryption could never subscribe we
word power and sound moving the molecule
Burn a fool run a fool with many degrees
peppered decree
heat the reasons
heat the heathens
pagously 
these streets are paved with thievery
false prophets false hopes false believery

Chorus x2

so lets form the battalion and stop battling for love of medallions
covered blood laid up in a ambulance
can't you see we're just africans with new garms on 
but no hearts mannequins
while freemasons dance with the Vatican
Speech i'm so tired of imagining
so ready for riots to start happening
ye and obama i'm not backing him 
sickening they drop bombs then sing hymns in church
like gods gone and these devils really think they're gonna win
but they're wrong, cos I stand strong on every song and 
pardon moi if you don't know I am 
the unknown man with unknown plans 
writing my future with no hands
unplug your mind from the enemies programmes live life with benignity
famalam stop the killing spree do you want to make money or history
cos honestly hand on my heart no man in power's every done a thing for me
its not a mystery its liberties blaze up a fire to the victory

Go tell the judge and the jury
They don’t know the half of the story
So if I break it down slowly
They can really see where I’m coming from
I had the spark when boy dem come
Live it down, I never done
When they showed up I never run
Stood firm for the conundrum

Eagle Eye
Can you hear what I say am I talking to myself shall I say it again
People want more, lies getting old they been told before
Try someone new, try something fresh re-write the rules
Keep your daily mail cause daily my male friend’s lose
Trying to feed their kids, their dreams get bruised
Don’t know these politicians are preaching too
Must be blind, as they usually do
But I’m 20/20 I’m so old school
I woke up lean, swagger of rasta, don’t smoke green, but I rap the track up
puff puff past the pagans we have to
let’s just get it done why wait for the rapture.

I was dreaming I was flying this morning
When I woke up I had soaked up the feeling
So I’m a telling ‘em
You can’t clip these wings, you can’t clip them listen
Any styles that you bring I dismiss them

Don’t let catch a fire these words will make granny clutch her pearls
Heaven is here, I aint waiting for death I’m getting mines here on earth
This revolution seems to be being played out on our T.V. screens
Listen closely you can hear the president running away screaming
People getting free, is a must bound to happen eventually
Oppression makes anger, anger is heat
Burning up inside your belly
Heavy to deal with cant hold it steady let it go
It’s hardly a surprise really they should know
People they want justice, and it shows
Is the only way to go the way it is going

I was dreaming I was flying this morning
When I woke up I had soaked up the feeling
So I’m a telling ‘em
You can’t clip these wings, you can’t clip them listen
Any styles that you bring I dismiss them

Elephant in the Living Room
The lies weren’t created to hurt you
I should have known the only way out was through
Should have rolled up my sleeves
And started moving this elephant out the living room
A lick of paint ‘cause the walls felt clinical
The couch became my own hot seat this is my life
But aint no Aspel it’s just us two
I needed more the bedroom was a chore
Hiding from my own thoughts a prisoner of love
‘Cause I knew that you needed me I thought was enough
Over time I just became stuck.
And it weren’t that you weren’t special to me, yes
I can read that expression clearly
You got a look like I’m trying to patronise you
But I’m telling you the truth I’m tired of hiding from you.
I’m looking in zoom, but it’s not tunnel vision
‘Cause spread the pieces like a puzzle and put it back together listen listen.v
I can’t do this any longer
I’m tired
And if I stay her any liar
A liar, a liar, a liar
I’ll be a liar
A liar, a liar, a liar
You’ll call me a liar

I know you’re not weak but you’re human
and I been hurt before so it kills me to do
I feel like I’m the one to destroy it I should have never allowed us to pursue
Now I feel so stupid
The moment that I had second thoughts
I shouldn’t push it the back of my mind like it’s a chore
I guess that’s reason this elephant is now in the middle of our living room floor feeding of my own fears that leaving you will leave me lonely.
I love how much you love me, I love how much you show me,
I love the way you want to let go when you hold me
I guess I’m in love with my own selfishness
and I’m sittin’ here acting like its selflessness
You deserve more than this.
This is crowding us and is the reason its
looking like I’m the egotist, yeah insecurity is the same as this

I can’t do this any longer
I’m tired
And if I stay her any liar
A liar, a liar, a liar
I’ll be a liar
A liar, a liar, a liar
You’ll call me a liar

I cant do this anymore
I cant do this anymore
I cant do this anymore
I cant do this anymore

Her Name was Jade
Young girl born into a broken home
Her home was broken because her father left them alone
And her mother was never a picture of a perfection
But she gave birth to her so she was therefore elected to
Protect her no matter what but easier said than done
It’s easier to run than face your own fears
So she found comfort in men that was less than upstanding
In certain one’s opinion
Maybe not the best start in life constant coughing from the passive smoking
She was so open to her surroundings she soaked them in
Stronger than poisoning
It’s probably then she began
To conjure up dreams of living like the lucky in the movies
One brother a dog a mummy and a daddy or any other type of reality that was Less like hers, lessons learnt through local lads who’ll lash your purse
And little girls who scrape, their curls and fashion is their main concern.
v Seasons change, autumn, winter, spring to summer
Life’s a game but the winning is in playing my friend
When you see her don’t just see her faults and failures
‘Cause she’s winner, she made her story last forever

School was so so kinda felt aimless
Teachers aint paid well so they aint focus
But can you really blame them they never had a bonus
Teach in monotone put you in a coma
But she had better teachers on road
Learnt about stocks and shares and how they grow
Learnt about commodities and probably the
reason she don’t want no GCSEs
‘cause shotta aint got them but they still pushing whips
sovereign rings one ten kicks
Things don’t click the message aint clear
talking about things that don’t resonate here
‘Cause what’s exam when you’re sitting here broke
Dad’s in jail mums on coke
and she keep taking all the money out your coat
and lorry’s outside screaming gimmie what your owe
so she turns on the telly but still hears his voice
it’s just a reminder she aint here by choice

I'm With It
Yes love may I respond, to the train that you came on
I know I said some things but I was wrong
Laying in bed thinking about it
I never knew you’d get a hold of my soul
Maybe we were lovers in a different life
I’m sure we were loving in a different time
I can hear the message I can see the sign
Must be brail I read it in your touch
The God of lust had a laugh on us
We tried but couldn’t get enough
Sitting here pressing rewind, hitting replay, the way we laid
Over and over and over again
Over and over and over again
Over and over and over again

I’m with it babe, baby x2
I’m with it babe
I’m with it baby
I’m with it baby

Cupid got me shot me with the 45v
Big insurgent anytime we inside
Soon come lover and know a no dat me no lie
Check the time, gym status
I think I like what we creating
Monet would say, ey ok.
Mummy would say go baby
I know why Cee Lo crazy
Sitting here pressing rewind, hitting replay, the way we laid
Over and over and over again
Over and over and over again
Over and over and over again

I’m with it babe, baby x2
I’m with it babe
I’m with it baby
I’m with it baby
