Dark Days

It’s all the same… we’re livin’ in these dark days

I’ve encountered many women
No matter how much you respect them
They’ll flock to the dudes who throw the most money
Then they wonder why they’re left feelin’ empty

I feel like I’m in a library
Goin’ through books with different covers
Flippin’ the pages and the content is all the same to me
I’d expect more variety, but it seems hard to discover

Why do they consciously go after what they say they don’t like
Why do they give attention to the types they bad mouth constantly
It all really puzzles me, because it’s as if they’re all alike
No matter the background, upbringing, or country

It’s all the same… we’re livin’ in these dark days

You mean to tell me that objectivity trumps positivity
You mean to tell me that a gentleman gets overlooked for someone creepy
It’s all just silly that it happens over and over again
The nice guys finish last no matter the time… future, past, or present

Doesn’t even have to be for meaningful relationships
It’s even in the aspect of simple friendships
Crazy to think how this world has changed
People claim it’s greater, but it’s vastly deranged

I simply can’t understand the thoughts in their heads
I know it’s something that is best left unsaid
I’m just continuously disappointed in the discrepancy of the culture
I’ll never change, it isn’t in my nature

It’s all the same… we’re livin’ in these dark days

Unto Battle

Listen while you read here

Opening:
Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before.

1st Verse:
Like a thief in the night He is coming
No matter how fast or far you’re running
The war wages on in the depths of this planet
Until the time comes for the great judgment

You say you don’t have faith
When it is a built in human trait
Unfortunately your lack of belief
Won’t keep you from the consequences forming

These people are so unforgiving
Trying to pounce on you at all times
The separation of Church and state isn’t fine
Since within these borders both reside

Each time the arguments are used
It is to try to diminish and abuse
The one that holds the correct views
When does the government concede to you

Their service is suppose to be in our favor
When they don’t show any concern that’s proper
It’s getting ridiculous the audacity they show
Acting as if Christ is the one who should go

What do they know, they’re dead in sin
I don’t care where you think life begins
Without alterations life is created
The choice happens prior to conception

All these people blind to the facts
They all don’t want to think just react
We get told that sharing is caring
So I’ll share the biblical message that’s worth blaring

2nd Verse:
Guns blazin’ around every corner
No one is sure when they’ll need cover
The threats today are more unique than ever
Anywhere from kids to respected elders

The battles we face aren’t always seen
That is where people are the most lacking
They are susceptible to what they don’t expect
Which is why spirituality deserves your respect

How can you not witness the proof given
It really is the only reason you’re livin’
How could things formulate without creation
Give me all of your alternate suggestions

It doesn’t matter your explanation
I can guarantee it doesn’t meet expectation
There is always someone out there complainin’
Doesn’t matter the label of the nation

This world is majorly a large sea
The depths of which contain great mystery
Just because there isn’t understanding
Doesn’t mean that it isn’t existing

Much like the translations of history
How can one accept some and not all
Where do you draw the line at learning
Because the bible holds the greatest gift of all

3rd Verse:
It was recently said that love wins
That victory sadly has yet to begin
God is love and love isn’t homosexuality
I’d rather be happy eternally than temporarily

Life here is a mere shell of time
I don’t care your views, we all will die
Reproduce a meaningful legacy
Not one filled with human hypocrisy

The truth is we’re one race with ethnicities
So interracial and racist are used incorrectly
Whatever happened to living in harmony
It seems hatred is breeding over coexisting

I refuse to conform to an idiotic society
The true King will maintain my loyalty
Drugs and sex aren’t needed in my reality
I’ll leave that for those with misguided fantasies

My generation has fell into such tragedy
I feel out of place and from a different time
But that’s why I’m here to present a different gear
Regardless of the changes that we see from year to year

My Name Is

Listen while you read here

Opening:
There’s a lot in a name
So many meanings to proclaim
A simple form of identity
Something easy for recognizing
Then again it might just be me who feels it’s mesmerizing

Hook:
My name is Majestic
My name is Integrity
My name is Comforting
My name is Adoring
My name is Harmonious

My name is Miraculous
My name is Awesome
My name is Sensational
My name is Original
My name is Normal

1st Verse:
This life is full of stress
We’re constantly out there getting pressed
Trying to live up to the name we get tested
If we claim faith we now get oppressed

It doesn’t make much sense
That love is taking a backseat
Because so many want to be redefining
Power is held within one true King

Everybody is caught up in their own fling
All the nonsense out there negating the rings
I remember a time when it was joy that would sing
Instead of these activities that breed treachery

If you uphold a sense of morality
You get looked at ever so differently
There is no longer much formal respect
Everyone is too busy ignoring discipline

So many feel entitled for reasons unknown
Their faces too busy buried in their phones
Which text message was it that gave you life
Which selfie provided shelter for you and your wife

All the distractions denying you the name
All the factors that bring upon further shame
We still haven’t figured out life isn’t a game
Now we just need to take hold of some responsibility

Hook:
My name is Majestic
My name is Integrity
My name is Comforting
My name is Adoring
My name is Harmonious

My name is Miraculous
My name is Awesome
My name is Sensational
My name is Original
My name is Normal

2nd Verse:
Everyone strives to be the best
When the best they can be is second
There will always be someone greater
It’s a fool’s errand to chase after

We have the power to heal
We can also move mountains
But we’re stuck in a raw deal
Trying to exercise deadly sins

Stepping away from the shade of yesterday
Can be tricky if done incorrectly
The past formulates the present
And the future is a plan of the present

If you want to stay relevant
Then by all means get cognitive
Start by making some well thought out decisions
Since there are indeed consequences

Everyone else’s actions don’t need to be duplicated
There is only one you who needs rejuvenation
Time will tell if all will be well
In the meantime though it’s time to break out of the shell

Dig deep to find the definition
Because intelligence is ideal for progression
Wisdom comes from that of Heaven
So let the name of Jesus be reflected

Hook:
My name is Majestic
My name is Integrity
My name is Comforting
My name is Adoring
My name is Harmonious

My name is Miraculous
My name is Awesome
My name is Sensational
My name is Original
My name is Normal

Closing:
So what’s under the surface of your name?

Chivalrous

Listen while you read here

Opening:
A wonderful woman by the name of Cinthya after listenin’ to one of my tracks told me she wanted to hear more rage and passion within my voice so this one’s for her…

1st Verse:
I’m a lover not a fighter, but have a temper
Toward anyone who disrespects her
And by her I mean all women of humanity
There isn’t a reason to be demeaning

Thou shall not kill is what it says in the commandments
But I could just break the necks of all the men
Who think they can rape, molest, and enslave
You shouldn’t hurt the gift that was made from our rib and some dirt

There’s too much value in women to see this happenin’
Why must it be this way to see further lack of equality
You want to step to me for being a gentleman
Then just know I’ll fight to the death for them

I’m not scared to throw hands if you force the issue
These women deserve a better class of man
Someone who will love and protect
Instead of disrespect and harass

I hear a round of applause off in the distance
Messages like this take persistence
Since so many these days lack the intelligence
To witness what love truly is

I can’t believe what it is I’m seeing on the daily
Hard enough to swallow the dosage the media prescribes
Causing further doubt in each of their minds
Why must it be this way, why can’t we all choose change

Hook:
They call me the charm alarm
Due to encouraging without harm
I inspire those who wish to prosper
The ones thinking they’re not too proper

Sometimes all it takes is one
Someone to nudge you in the right direction
I hate to see my gender fallin’ flat
When will we see real men come back

It’s a shame that romance has lost it’s name
So many games these days nothin’ is the same
Instead of holdin’ hands we see other charades
When was it simplicity officially got locked up in chains

Talking point:
You might say “Pure what if I get laughed at for waiting till I’m married, do you admit your virginity publicly?”
or “What if they make fun of me for not watching pornography?”

All I can say is that having honor and integrity
Outweigh anything that you can gain from the pressures of humanity
Being someone unique utilizing morality is much more impressive
Just because others want you to submit doesn’t mean you should
Whoever the woman is you owe her a full commitment before pleasure
Learning everything about her in the process to show her actual respect
Simple as that, case closed

Hook:
They call me the charm alarm
Due to encouraging without harm
I inspire those who wish to prosper
The ones thinking they’re not too proper

Sometimes all it takes is one
Someone to nudge you in the right direction
I hate to see my gender fallin’ flat
When will we see real men come back

It’s a shame that romance has lost it’s name
So many games these days nothin’ is the same
Instead of holdin’ hands we see other charades
When was it simplicity officially got locked up in chains

Bridge:
They say chivalry is dead
Well I’m a man raised to revive it
Courtship is a lost art
Though it’s never too late to start

Show women that you have a heart
Never depart if you haven’t complimented her

Each day that passes by
All the women are asking many questions of why
How about we finally give them some answers
Show them that we can be legit men instead of a typical guy

3rd Verse:
Break down the door of mediocrity
Push away the problems of yesterday
Wake up to the mistakes that you’ve made
And become a better version of yourself today

The interactions that you meet going forward
Should indicate that you are done with torture
The words that you say and actions that you take
Need to be meaningful and not in vain

Beauty is held within all aspects of a woman
So you should recognize that again and again
Don’t hesitate any longer let the transition begin
There is never a downfall to being a gentleman

Help them all to reach their dreams
Never try to lower their self esteem

Free Your Mind

Listen while you read here

Intro/1st Verse:
Where has the time gone
The clock seems to fly
It has become a blur behind the eyes

My good friend and I always talked about it
Couldn’t help but constantly notice it
We had similar mind sets
But the facts remained time wasn’t an asset

We could acknowledge it
We could predict it
We just never could stop it
The enemy of us all doesn’t quit

Only one speed that it sees
You move with it or you get left reeling
I know you know the feeling
There’s just not enough hours in a day
And life just goes by too quick they say

Take a deep breath and wake up yet again
How will we overcome this elevation
Step away from the technology
Which seems to have become the new reality

All it produces is a mind full of fantasy
The lack of independence is killing me
We need a better development for our society
To latch on to something we actual integrity

You know I’m not kidding
I’m speaking with pinpoint accuracy
Time is of the essence for any kind of success
Leave the mess of the stress to let your mind find progress

Bridge/2nd Verse:
Some people think you need drugs or alcohol
The fact is you just need yourself to free your mind
Insead of being locked up in problematic thoughts
Open the door to solutions so you’re not left distraught
Be remembered as someone who fought

Don’t lie still and let go of your free will
The lives we lead are meant for adventuring
It isn’t about the end result, but the journey
We all have an end, but different methods of going

Never quit, never give in to distraction
Focus on the triumph over the addictions
It is possible and feels incredible
The freedom that you seek is beautiful

So many these days are skeptical
Clinging to their ideals they think are normal
I am here to formally dismiss the claims
Anything that brings you pain should be met with disdain

For you are meant to bring hope and prosper
Ignore those that try to impede or hinder
Each day that you see is meant to be lived
So please oh please never forfeit

Never forget the purpose you maintain
Life isn’t to be treated as a game
Mind over matter is often said
But only God Himself can bring forth the greatest benefits

3rd Verse:
Don’t get tied up in this prison
Step up to proceed on the right mission
You don’t want to be left wishin’
That you had done somethin’ different

Time flies, it never slows
So act now before it is time to go
The seconds are precious so show benevolence
Treat others how you want to be treated

Our culture might be split
But we’re united as humans
We all have something in common
So let’s focus on the positives

With each interaction let’s try to edify
Stop asking the question of why
Instead shine bright like the sky
Providing answers like Christ up high

Too Much

Listen while you read here

1st Verse:
It’s been a long time since I’ve been happy
I’ve been through dark times with no rhymes
Easily the most treacherous line of thoughts for my mind
Expression without bein’ sappy

I’ve said it once I’ll say it again
I’m the last standing virgin
Head held high avoiding the temptations
Walking the narrow path that leads to life everlastin’

I’ve been attacked from front to back
Tryin’ to mold myself after the only one who has my back
I don’t aim to please or aim to teach
But to get each and every one of you thinking

This journey takes patience and time
Resulting in the fact that it is temporary
It isn’t meant to be scary
The life we live should reflect joy

It isn’t about the cash or toys
But the elements of interaction
Don’t get too tired chasing satisfaction
There is more to do in order to progress

Don’t leave your life in a mess
It’s a waste of time to stress
I’ve seen death and am not afraid
If you choose to lean on Him though, it’ll all be ok

2nd Verse:
Each time there’s a new sign
I ponder the meaning of the divine
I signed up for this
A soldier to help bring light through the darkness

I’m not sold on all this newness
The sins of many who proclaim bliss
I’ve been through many experiences
I don’t need to add to my problems

Advancement is the only option
Enough of the regression
No other human is someone’s possession
Regrets aren’t meant to keep you stagnant

Don’t think you’re worthless
Everyone has hope to access
Your one of a kind unique prowess
Is just what this world needs to learn about forgiveness

I’ve been set free through repentance
The aroma of this Earth now has a new fragrance
The flesh will fade, but never the spirit
Eternity is a real thing, so quit denying

Faith in humanity will leave you empty
The temporary can’t keep you happy
There’s greater emotion beyond understanding
These feelings are there to witness for everybody

Without Wings

Listen while you read here

Hook:
We have all needed comforting
We have all needed a calming
We have all needed guarding
We have all needed problem solving

The angels up above look down with love
And those that are with us who deliver hugs
You know exactly what it is I’m saying
You might think they’re missing but there’s some without wings

We walk amongst the precious
Kindness for all of us to witness
Let the stories be known
That grace can indeed be shown

1st Verse:
Though we’ve never had the pleasure
I know that you’re one of my treasures
I’ve never gotten to look you in the eyes
All that time ago now, it escapes my mind

There once was a time we grew together
I’ve never had a chance to hear your laughter
I wasn’t able to ever say a proper thank you
Not many know about us, but I sure do

You carried me through a pregnancy
All those months prior to my infancy
You allowed me to grow unharmed
And I’m not sure I’ve ever felt the warmth of your arms

They say that angels roam amongst the stars
But then there are those on this Earth much like you are
Even though I may not know how you look
The beauty of your choice is enough in my book

I imagine there are times you’re left wondering
What it is that may have happened to me
God has blessed me with a great family
So there isn’t a need for you to worry

You gave me the opportunity to breathe
Now I’m able to write these words for many
Wherever you are I hope that you’re great
And I hope to meet you again someday, I can hardly wait

Hook:
We have all needed comforting
We have all needed a calming
We have all needed guarding
We have all needed problem solving

The angels up above look down with love
And those that are with us who deliver hugs
You know exactly what it is I’m saying
You might think they’re missing but there’s some without wings

We walk amongst the precious
Kindness for all of us to witness
Let the stories be known
That grace can indeed be shown

2nd Verse:
They call them my guardians
I call them my parents, my loved ones
The ones who raised me as a gentleman
The ones who cared enough to make the investment

It isn’t hard to identify who impacts your life
Those who love you unconditionally through the strife
I’ve been blessed, I’ll say it again and again
It never gets old because God’s not dead

They’ve been there to instill principles
They taught me valuing a woman wasn’t miniscule
The sacrifices they’ve made have paved the way
I’m forever grateful that they chose me that day

Way back when I was a hemisphere away
There wasn’t any fear for them that day
They flew the entirety to come and get me
A baby they wanted from another country

It’s been a great journey in my opinion
Because they’ve lived out what they said
It wasn’t hard to see God through their actions
Always there to give me their attention

I couldn’t have done better if I had picked
That is why I’m glad that God did it
No doubt in my mind that my parents are mine
In this life we live now and on into the divine

Hook:
We have all needed comforting
We have all needed a calming
We have all needed guarding
We have all needed problem solving

The angels up above look down with love
And those that are with us who deliver hugs
You know exactly what it is I’m saying
You might think they’re missing but there’s some without wings

We walk amongst the precious
Kindness for all of us to witness
Let the stories be known
That grace can indeed be shown

Closing:
Who is it that has impacted you the most
Have you told them you loved them today
I suggest you get on that if you haven’t

Don’t be afraid to be that impact on someone else’s life
Be for others what your loved ones were for you
There are angels all around, God Bless

Hook:
We have all needed comforting
We have all needed a calming
We have all needed guarding
We have all needed problem solving

The angels up above look down with love
And those that are with us who deliver hugs
You know exactly what it is I’m saying
You might think they’re missing but there’s some without wings

We walk amongst the precious
Kindness for all of us to witness
Let the stories be known
That grace can indeed be shown

If I Could

Listen while you read here

1st Verse:
I always thought I had the answers
But found there is wisdom in having many advisors
Finding the right people is the key
God has placed them right in front of me

Each one has been a true blessing
Being aware at all times helps the learning
The ability to listen is often ignored
Analyzing the surroundings can be a chore

However, dreams can’t come true
If you aren’t capable of pushing through
Getting through all the experiences you face
With or without the ability to keep up with their pace

Life isn’t always about the race
Which is why I’ve chosen grace
I needed forgiveness for the times I’ve slacked
The times I’ve held regret looking back

Keeping myself hesitant rather than ready
Wasn’t in the best interest for anybody
Waking up to the ring and answering the call
Are two different things, but important to avoid the fall

I haven’t always said the right things
I haven’t always been encouraging
I’ve failed at times through various mistakes
Which is why I need Christ to walk with me each day

In order to get through the pains
In order to get through the heartache
There is only one source for the correct course
Which is why I’ll stay silent so I can hear from the Lord

Bridge:
It’s not always easy to make the right choice
To echo the correct sentiments with your voice
The task at hand is great to endure
So with our efforts we need to be pure

2nd Verse:
Sometimes when I pray I don’t know what to say
Due to there being so much in this world that isn’t ok
A lot of people out there that just act without facts
They choose to do evil and have no tact

So many activities leaving me in uncertainty
Not for the faith that I uphold, but for humanity
Where has it all gone wrong over the years
Will there ever be a time when we’re in the clear here

I think that the most drastic event will take place
Before we once again experience a true form of grace
There is always hope for change to happen each day
But the way we’re operating seems it will be in dismay

I’m not one to predict the future
I just know all the wrong that is within our culture
It never ceases to amaze me the hate that is out there
When will the world choose to leave behind despair

Everybody seems to be seeking answers
But the sources they are choosing leave them in a blur
They refuse to listen to reason and truth
Leaving behind the lessons of their youth

Outro:
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

You too can be saved
Everyone who seeks shall find
His love surpasses all understanding
I guarantee it will be the best choice you’ve ever made

Collateral

Kids against cops and cops against kids
Media propaganda trying to brainwash our judgment
When will it all end
The influence of hatred on the matter behind our eyelids

We get “pro” tips, but are left with tricks
Each piece of advice leading to nothing nice
False bravado to antagonize a desired outcome
Leading us slowly down the road to a wretched kingdom

Tainted dark nights around the clock
The fountain overflows with the weight of each rock
All the hearts stop because the brain is washed
Too many focused on the wrongs to avoid responsibilities at all costs

So many souls lost for the dream of fame
Fifteen minutes and it’s all defamed
Slanderous cancer eating away at the hopes and dreams of each person
Getting the negative criticisms to make our moods worsen

With the mountains that we’re forced to climb
We should know there is far better out there worth our time
I’ve found it and I hope you can to
Before time runs out under the sky so blue

Sweetheart

When she smiles my heart melts
Her voice exemplifies how relaxation is felt
Smooth tones and soft spoken, truly unique
Each time she’s around it’s always entertaining

Life of the party always creating memories
It’s hard to put it into words the essence of this woman’s glory
A true treasure almost imaginary
A personality that resounds courtesy

Someone with confidence and dignity
Successful in more ways than just the monetary
Respect and kindness are a few of her specialties
Anyone who has met her considers it a blessing
