Track Name: The Fog of San Francisco
Oh yeah
You know I got dumbfounded
And astounded by the karma
Makin moves in the city lights
It's like they out to get me
I'm in the shadows and everything don't seem so well
But I cannot forget that balance will prevail
Just gotta keep it movin on
So I'm here right on top of it
I got the battle-axe ready but i don't wanna take no heads
Truth be told life's bitter-sweet
You can walk around town with a face of defeat
Or walk in so called classes as shabby to elite
But it don't matter cause from danger we should all retreat
Cause when we meeting straight on
Energies collide
This world's a little jaded
So with our greens we abide
Put it up in the air
Like currency spent
Love Sco so bad heaven sent

(Hook)
This is what we see
This is what we know
We nestled deep up in the fog of San Francisco
x2

Say no more
Love could never be compromised
Don't believe me just look at my eyes
Justified these things I'm feeling
Ain't no stealing
Sexual healing
Ain't no problem when lovers moan
Walk Sally with her sea shells and her cell phone
Can't leave them at home cause our dogs need them walks
In certain cutty districts find bodies outlined in chalk
Seven by seven
Love is a weapon
And 49 times we be steppin
Just check what you're doin
This city could ruin
A sucker who roughshod persuin
The wrong kinda action
Drug satisfaction
Leave you're spirit caught for the harsh thrashin
Please make it out of this maze
In the cold city nights we still amaze

(Hook x4)
Track Name: DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD
(Hook)
A Yo
Love me for me or don't love me at all
I'd rather be a warm hearted fool to take a fall
Than a cold blooded stud who thinks he's standing straight
You get what you give
Hope love you emanate
But if that ain't the way your heart cooperate
Then you might get a chance for fate to dictate
A balance in your life like a double-edged sword
I hope our inner children reach an accord

I absorb the good and bad like any earthly creature
There's a battle for refinement everyday in the grind
Express from the soul
Modulating through the speaker
Transcending the currents is the key to the vibe
Behold I stand alone and I don't have no weapon
But still they think I'm dangerous
Can't leave my smirks at bay
The most guarded people are the highest to feel threatened
I'd rather be a wise-ass with nothin to say
Cause on the loneliest of nights is when they come a knockin
Rockin round the town now the money's all gone
Gotta eat to live live to eat commence licks with stockings
On heads of those tired of playing the game as pawn
But still all this deception don't really mean a thing
I'm sure we'd all love to survive by legal means
Every woman is queen and every man is king
We all little kids with our big dreams

(Hook)

I afford the criticism that they all speakin
Cause little did they know they all talking 'bout themselves
I explore the world as warrior on weekends
Free minded spirits can't be coerced into spells
But say you had a little insight to my life
I know you can't overstand how I make it on
All I want is star and moon yes my child and wife
I'm a sun to mother earth
Lonely travelling along
She told you love's an illusion
To me thats very sad
I'm sorry not everyone chooses the best mate
Living through your children is as equally bad
Your daughter loves me miss
Sorry you think it's a mistake
Yeah I got a lot of love that won't pay the bills
Would you rather have some money or a heart of gold
If I'm true to ones self then this one will feel fullfilled
All I gotta do is walk the path
The truth will unfold

(Hook)
Track Name: What it DO?
If love was a hustle yo I'd be a rich man
Straight slangin off the product as my heart expand
In this land it's all about supply and demand
Got me ballin with compassion feeling grand
Right on
I'm sorry haters but you best to ride on
Might have to deal with you later slide on
I'd rather be danger evading glide on
Get swept with a feeling
From multiple angles this steadily bombardment
Hits you so sincere
Can't be swept under the carpet
I'd rather have peace than have war as a target
And if I could make her honest then I'd rather love a harlott
Than a fake goody two shoes
Harborin the illest of thoughts
Pre programmed for boo boo
Had your children but still plots
And thats a damn shame for any spiritual gain
We gotta fight for our souls to maintain

(Hook)
I don't mean to beat you down
But yeah thats what it do
x3
Love TKO means you're through

Long live love in this world of sin
They try to break us down but they just can't win
Trekkin on this earth the truth is found
Children giving rise to freedom's sound
Right on
I'm sorry haters but you best to ride on
Might have to deal with you later slide on
I'd rather be danger evading glide on
Get swept with a feeling
Float like a butterfly sting like a bee
Shadowbox with the harmonies
Spiraling energies
Intertwined with the melodies
Shadow dancer's prance
Protect against a wrongful advance
If it's hostile this apostle strikes with agility
Defending the vessel with mind bending mobility
Calculated energy reaps the benefits of war
I fight for love within my hearts metaphors

(Hook x3)
Track Name: Do What U Want
You know I love you baby
could you please stop acting so shady?
you know ur driving me crazy_what is ur deal?
we know this world it ain't perfect
could you help me change up my circuitry
so we could see life's true beauty...?
i know sometimes I'm mad ugly
smelling like a fish u can't love me
too selfish in my frenzy for u to reel
but I'm crawling out of my shell
true love will always prevail
in the end of time so let's go sail away
i got ur back and u know this
drift through emotions like a lotus
take a deep breath cuz u know
we're flowing surreal


[HOOK]
Do what u want because u know know how I feel
I'm looking for that kind of true love which can heal
say what u say because u know who I am
I'm saying that I am ur man and that's for real

[VERSE REPEATS]

Track Name: HOW THE WEST WAS WON
NO GUNS I'M HERE I'M JUST CHILLING
SPITTING OFF EMOTIONS ONLY THING I'M KILLING
WILLING TO CHANGE MY INNER VIEWS FOR BETTER FEELINGS
AIN'T KICKING IT NO MORE WITH BANSHEES WHO BE DEALING
REELING IN LOVE LIKE I'M ROLLING INDO
BUT THE STRUGGLE'S MAD HARD SO MY GAME MOVES SLOW
I'M A FOE WHEN IT COMES TO BEATING SHIT IN FRENZIES
YES I ADMIT SOMETIMES I AIN'T FRIENDLY
BUT YOU AIN'T MY DRIVER SO HOW COULD YOU SEND ME?
IF YOU WERE STRONGER THAN I IT WOULD BE LOVE THAT YOU LEND ME
BUT YOU'RE CAUGHT IN A TRANCE NEW SETTLER ON PRAIRE
LOOKING AT THIS NATIVE AND THINKING HE MAD SCAREY
YOU BROUGHT FROM LANDS FOREIGN YOUR SCAMS AND DECEIT
NO MORE TRAILS MADE OF DIRT ONLY DIRTY CONCRETE
AS I TREK ON THE STREETS WITH MY TOMAHAWK BEATS
CHOOSE TO SCALP WITH MY TONGUE INSTEAD OF SCALPING HEAD MEAT

[HOOK]
YOU DON'T KNOW THE DEPTH OF DESPAIR I HOLD
IN MY HEART FOR EVERYTHING WRONG I'VE DONE
I CAN'T MOVE ON WITHOUT FORGIVENESS
BUT THAT AIN'T HOW THE WEST WAS WON

STICKS AND STONES BLADES AND BRICKS WAS DEPICTED
WHERE'S MY MUSKET I CAN'T TRUST IT COMBUSTED
THE MOTIVE ULTERIOR INFERIOR ELEMENTS EMPLOYED
NOW WHERE THE HELL'S MY DECOY?
FOR THIS INFRINGEMENT ON DATA I'D RATHER GATHER MY NOW AND LATHER LET THIS SNITCH JABBER
ABRACADABRA NOW I'M UP IN COUNTY
ANOTHER RESTRAINING ORDER HOW THIS SUCKER FIND ME?
FOR THIS IS A DIFFERENT THING-BUT WHEN YOU LOVED YOU TRULEY HATED
SELF-EXPRESSION IS A MUST EVEN WHEN IT IS DEBATED
REGULATED ON SIDELINES WITH SNITCHES AND THEY TEXTS
IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE AN ARTIST GET BRUTALLY VEXED
CHECK MYSELF WITHIN THE REALMS OF MOTHER NATURE
NURTURE AND DISCOVER WAYS NOT TO HATE YA
FOR THERE'S A HIGHER PRICE AND A HIGHER PENALTY
LET ME STAB YOU SIXTEEN TIMES MENTALLY

[HOOK]

TOLD MYSELF IT'S ABOUT THE LOVE THE PAIN THE STRENGTH TO MOVE ON
IN THE FACE OF DEFEAT EMERSE ONESELF IN A SONG AND DANCE
ENHANCE RITUALISTIC STYLES FROM THE MYSTICS
NOCTURNAL STLYE MISFITS
GET THIS IN CATACOMBS AND CANYONS
BATTLE WAGONS BE SWAGGING SO LOVELY IN STEREO
BUMPIN BOMBARDMENT IS ESSENTIALLY THE BASICS
LIKE BREATHING IN AIR FLOW IN THIS BOUNTIFUL OASIS
TASTE THIS HONEY DEW LIKE BUTTERSCOTCH
AND GRAB FOR YOUR LOVER'S HAND AND HAVE A HOOTINANNY
CUZ NONE OF YALL CAN SCAM BE OR DAMN ME WE ALL FAMILY
UNDER ONE SUN SO YO MOM'S MOM'S MY GRANNY
WE ALL BLOOD RELATED SO WHAT'S FAIR IS FAIR
I DON'T MIND TO STAND UP ON YOUR MUSICAL CHAIRS
OR PIN THE TAIL ON THE DONKEY
MY GRANDPAPPIE'S A HONKEY FROM TEXAS
SO RACISM'S SENSELESS

[HOOK]
