Hurricane

Intro:
We’re all at war in some form
It’s hurricane season, I hope you’re prepared for the storm

Verse:
Look up and look down
You hear it from all the clowns
Your town verses my town
The idiocy doesn’t slowdown

Racking up enemies left and right
Doesn’t matter the level of fight
People just want to flex their might
But often times it’s all bark, no bite

Given all the violence that happens
It seems clear they serve a corrupt captain
Spiteful vitriol shooting out like cannons
This nonsense is all too rapid, nobody’s laughin’

From the outside looking in it’s so dumb
The brainwash is clearly working as they’re numb
So focused on being superior they’ve succumb
They’re now the bait for attention a bunch of chum

Distractions being created to distort the truth
People plugged in now early in their youth
Grab their psyche while it is still fresh to sooth
Keep their ideas locked up tight like a phone booth

Walking around we see all sorts of drones
And I’m not talking the flying type, but the ones with phones
So embedded into the tech they’ve lost their backbone
Crossing into the territory a rather dangerous zone

It’s all fun and games until death opens the eyes
Ignoring the signs is a hazardous way to live guys
Turning your back on others doesn’t win you a prize
So in rough times when you’re alone it shouldn’t be a surprise

Bridge:
Wake up before you get swarmed
You can’t say you haven’t been warned
That whirlwind in your life
Will cut right through you swift like a knife

Closing:
Buckle up if you’re on a wild ride
In order for the issues to subside
You need to face the problems inside
There’s no time to run off and hide

Do you have control of your choices
What’s in your head making the loudest noises
The advice you need comes from the calmest of voices
So be sure to ignore the poison and find the joyous

The emotional roller coaster doesn’t have to shake
Let the adventure learn from the mistakes
You can be free from that pain and ache
Then turn around and be someone else’s grace

Season

1st Verse:
Pickin’ and choosin’ many are losin’
These games that are played are a nuisance
Better be careful what you deem unworthy
If God introduced it then there’s no controversy

Many throw around labels for their masquerade
Tryin’ to disguise their morals that have decayed
Summertime dreamin’ wantin’ to have a fling
Not many left respectin’ the commitment of the ring

Waves crashin’ around in our mind constantly
Leavin’ a treacherous wake of doubts honestly
The more you know the more it all hurts
Exposed to the pains that these evils flirt

Walkin’ around with a smile on the face
As you try to pace yourself for a steady race
Rollercoaster like zigs and zags leavin’ you nauseous
Yet nobody wants to slow down and be cautious

2nd Verse:
Life can sometimes be like a harvest
We reaped what we sowed since it started
There’s limited time for us to experience this
The speed of it all is rather quite furious

Ripe for the pickin’ do you have discipline
Are you exercisin’ free will or playin’ the puppet
In order to mature you need to let yourself live
Not fall into the trap of your choices being a gift

Stand up for what it is you wish, show passion
Don’t be gutted like a fish, by taking no action
If you’ve been blessed with a voice use it
It’s the only way your personality can be legitimate

Use the expressions of your talents to give back
Learn to love the process so you don’t slack
A significant other is nice if you’re on equal ground
So don’t only march to the echoes of their sound

3rd Verse:
We all live in different seasons
We all live for different reasons
Don’t let yourself commit treason
Love yourself so you can be a person to believe in

Needs

Intro:
We all see the darkness looming
So what are we even doing
The false narrative driving this negativity
Isn’t even being challenged publicly
A sad sight to witness… surely

1st Verse:
They say that treasure is buried
Seems right since love hasn’t been carried
Everyone trying quickly to judge
For some reason always holding a grudge

Mistakes have been made it’s no secret
But why continue the trend with this weakness
Our lives are in need of greater achievement
So why limit our needs with the horrific treatment

Look out around you right now, everyone pleading
Instead of aid though ignorance keeps proceeding
Lack of integrity being shown all around
When will the truth once again become found

Hook:
We all need to eat, breathe, and sleep
So why does this hatred have to run so deep

Yeah, I know you heard me

We all need to eat, breathe, and sleep
So why does this hatred have to run so deep

Somebody please tell me, can anyone tell me

2nd Verse:
We all share the same needs
When we’re cut we all bleed
These fabricated differences they seek
Shouldn’t be leaving our society bleak

How can humanity be this weak
Color shouldn’t be a cause for critique
Don’t buy into what the mainstream feeds
They rather we fail instead of succeed

Strength comes in the form of unity
So end the hate at every opportunity
Change can happen if we plant the seed
We just have to acknowledge the belief

Look in the mirror tell me what you see
It should be a person, a human being
No need to mislabel the identity
We’re all unique equally

Hook:
We all need to eat, breathe, and sleep
So why does this hatred have to run so deep

Yeah, I know you heard me

We all need to eat, breathe, and sleep
So why does this hatred have to run so deep

Somebody please tell me, can anyone tell me

3rd Verse:
You can’t tell us we can’t get through
You don’t know what it is we can do
You need to learn and get a clue
We’re capable for whatever we want to pursue

All the doubters, all the naysayers
We’re not interested in being a betrayer
We no longer entertain your favor
You’ll however be in our prayers

Stand aside with the wild ride you bestow
We’d much rather move forward and grow
There’s plenty we can come to know
That won’t deny our lives the ability to flow

The enemy that lies within needs to leave
We need to shed the ability to deceive
We’re now ready to go out and achieve
We should now also always believe

Hook:
We all need to eat, breathe, and sleep
So why does this hatred have to run so deep

Yeah, I know you heard me

We all need to eat, breathe, and sleep
So why does this hatred have to run so deep

Somebody please tell me, can anyone tell me

Hurricane Season

The full project that came to fruition recently unexpectedly. Was fun to get back into this aspect of creativity. Thanks for your time in listening if you so choose, hope all is well! God Bless!

With You

1st Verse:
Shhhhhhh

I need it quiet as I lay myself to rest
This pain spreading in my body is it cancer or stress
Perhaps my soul’s sensitive to the world being a mess
Despite all these tests, I know that I’m blessed

Because there’s nothing to stop my progress
The author of it all already dictated my success
Whether I’m striving ahead or found dead
The work that has been done will continue to spread

As the days go by I sit back and witness
Many people out there losing their confidence
Actions being taken that have no common sense
Leaving a wake of mistakes that make life tense

A plethora of adventures leading to addictions
A myriad of problems producing failed relationships
A great gap of emptiness as they look deep in
None of them wanting to listen to the voice within

2nd Verse:
Shhhhhhh

Can’t you see all the people sleeping
Closed off to reality too busy dreaming
Caught up in the whirlwind of fantasy
What will it take for them to awake

For us to be living for moralities sake
So we don’t get swallowed up in the earthquake
The feelings we express are they genuine
Or are we conditioned to someone else’s regimen

What’s with the lack of security in our mentalities
Are we too afraid to share our own personalities
There’s all this nonsense regarding what’s fake
With the message being portrayed we should break

Why should we listen to those with no inner strength
Trying to lead us down the road where our lives tank
Breathe in and breath out, let go of all the doubts
We need one another for our purpose to come about
That’s why we should all shout…

3rd Verse:
Shhhhhhh

Walking aimlessly have we become zombies
Hungering after the flesh and the temporary
Things that don’t satisfy or create memories
Leading to further aches, pains, and tragedies

It seems we’re stuck in a haze of hate
One of the furthest things from being great
Saturated in separation I thought we left segregation
What’s with the direction of this nation and its education

Flanked by answers to millions of questions
Blindsided by the various given definitions
Love wins and love forgives so let God in
Christ didn’t make the sacrifice for you to forfeit

As we navigate life strangely like a contortionist
We need to abolish the acts of the abortionist
Several children gone now without a choice
So many lost without ever making a noise
Who will it be to relay this message of their voice

Ending

Click play to listen to the full track or read my lyrics below

1st Verse:
Some say that the end is near
How can that picture ever be clear
Today is the end for many lives
It’s also the time for many to rise

A battle in the forefront and background
We hear the call in almost every sound
An agenda is always presented with news
Or even in the trenches of your own crew

They’ve laid claim that it’s an effect of a butterfly
Rippling like water throughout your life, but why
The choices we make impact the breath we take
So don’t let these problems become an outbreak

Many wonder the source of discourse
Since there’s all this violence with no remorse
Trying to understand it all can be a drain
And it’s rather impossible to predict the end with our own brain

Hook:
There are many endings
With nothing being an absolute
There are many beginnings
With nothing guaranteed for revenue

There’s always an alternative to the outcome
Finding the correct path can be hard for some
Focusing on the death or finality
Isn’t wise for the sake of our vitality

Many struggle, many suffer
Time doesn’t wait for life to buffer
We’re constantly streaming with our heart beating
Our minds are meant for creating not destructing

2nd Verse:
Look at the rates of suicide
It’s quite literally hard to hide
People falling at an alarming rate
Doesn’t matter their lifestyle or age

All access means more to deal with
The social aspects of torment are no myth
24/7 people try to infiltrate using these connections
As a result people are giving in due to no protection

They feel as if their life is no longer worth it
Because they don’t believe in a sense of purpose
It’s hard to swallow and hard to take
The tragedies piling up with the heartbreak

People want to disregard the lifeguard
When He is clearly the only effective armor
Now isn’t the time to deflect, but collect
Accept the facts and show the respect

Hook:
There are many endings
With nothing being an absolute
There are many beginnings
With nothing guaranteed for revenue

There’s always an alternative to the outcome
Finding the correct path can be hard for some
Focusing on the death or finality
Isn’t wise for the sake of our vitality

Many struggle, many suffer
Time doesn’t wait for life to buffer
We’re constantly streaming with our heart beating
Our minds are meant for creating not destructing

3rd Verse:
What is the legacy you’re trying to build
Have you been someone who aims to fulfill
What about those you witness being grilled
Are you showing compassion or just allowing them to be killed

We’re all sharing this planet’s fresh air
Why can’t love now become declared
Separation leads us to being in ruins
While togetherness strengthens our foundations

Hook:
There are many endings
With nothing being an absolute
There are many beginnings
With nothing guaranteed for revenue

There’s always an alternative to the outcome
Finding the correct path can be hard for some
Focusing on the death or finality
Isn’t wise for the sake of our vitality

Many struggle, many suffer
Time doesn’t wait for life to buffer
We’re constantly streaming with our heart beating
Our minds are meant for creating not destructing

Lyrics:
I can see the pain drip from your lips
Each time you breathe and speak
All these dudes creepin’ on you like it’s Halloween
Or some scary horror movie, scene after scene

Going from one relationship to the next
Maybe you shouldn’t be so eager to text
Calling the last one that ended a mistake
Then the next one shows up and you’re quick to partake

Hurting on the inside it’s effecting your demeanor
As you promise that you’ve learned from past behavior
I see all the warning signs all around the globe
Avoidance doesn’t seem to be an option, they say nope

Coloring between the lines with each stroke
But everything is blurry now as the confidence broke
Trying to defend the actions of each situation
When someone points out your former proclamation

Ignoring the advice to keep you straight
You veer off the path to once again experience self hate
What’s the reason for the treason
Why allow for something to break your vow

Rewind it back play it again
These pitfalls in your life constantly happenin’
There seems to be a trend to these problems
So why not analyze the causes

Flip flops, high tops, bikinis, or sweats with long sleeves
What you wear shouldn’t be your hopes to achieve
Allow yourself a moment to grieve
So that your personality can restore the belief

Many others are stranded in situations more dire
Finding someone shouldn’t be your only desire
Tough times have stricken all of the population
You’re not alone, pardon the regurgitation

Are your eyes wide open or shut
The momentum of your life shouldn’t be lust
You’ve seen it too many times to know it’s a bust
It’s time to find somewhere else to put your trust

I know you know it’s time to move
I can see it in your eyes that you want to
So why get stuck in another charade
Get out of this hold before it’s too late

Don’t let the pain make you insane
Repeating this process of stressful mess
There shouldn’t even be a debate
It’s time to advance to a better mental state

Nobody seems to be happy with the cards they’ve been given
Trying to fold before their life really begins
Some just foolishly gamble beyond reproach
Leaving what they’ve built to go up in smoke

I see you clearly each of you listening
You’re just like me dealing with an issue of struggling
As you sit back and chill for a few minutes
The clock keeps tickin’ it knows no limits

Rather than diminish what it is we have left
Why not introduce more meaningful concepts
Adapt to the correct views of caring since we’re all alive
That way our society can possibly be revived

Feel your heartbeat it’s telling you to forgive
Don’t drown in the past actions that you’re sad with
Flip the switch to brighten the days ahead
What you see in the mirror shouldn’t be dread

Wake up to the hope that’s threaded inside
You’ve been built to withstand the rough tide
All the storms circling in your mind
Can be calmed by the one who resides up high

Deep Waters

1st Verse:
Far from perfect has it all been worth it
Giving me plenty of reasons not to quit
All the faces in this world filled with emotion
Regardless of what is fueling the notion

Each one has a lifetime experience that’s unsaid
Since not all of them are ones that I’ve met
I’m just an individual, one particular instrument
A tool created for a greater mission

Lot’s of words get shared, but does anyone truly care
There’s plenty of people seeking certain affairs
Wanting to be loved in a way that’s unconditional
But ignore the proper answer because it’s too traditional

I don’t want to be held captive in the moment
A prisoner to my own distraction left broken
Revive the passion inside that makes me unique
So that my motivation can once again peak

I realize that we’re all here for a reason
So if I’m someone meant to help them see it
Use my words and aid my faith to push forward
So it is you Lord that they’ll look toward

2nd Verse:
Each day that it is we awake
Should be seen as an opportunity to make change
Guide us to consistently do it in the right way
For without you God there’s no hope to display

Give us the courage and the strength
To listen, learn, and obey

Help us to become more aware
To pursue you and connect through prayer
So we can always be prepared
To overcome all forms of despair

You’ve lit the path for us all to tread
Now may that light of yours continuously spread

Embrace

Complexion and perception are unusual characteristics
Thoughts that drive the emotions of differing logistics
No matter how hard you may try you feel inept inside
Struggling with how you view the image you portray on the outside

Some of us don’t cut ourselves any slack
Expecting perfection when nobody else even has that
Utilizing every chance to enhance certain aspects
Rather than giving ourselves an ounce of self respect

Fighting with our own views
In such ways that others have no clue
None of this should come as news
Since we’ve all suffered a pinch of the blues

For some reason many times compliments fall to the wayside
Due to the sheer amount of disbelief someone holds in tough times
We’re all in some way shape or form tied together with experiences
Since everyone has encountered judgments that were serious

What we see in the mirror is made up of more than just that image
There are far greater explanations and sensations that produce the vision
Everyone reacts differently to what it is they see
Considering we all think and operate uniquely

How it is we react and contemplate
Will determine what kind of life we create
Each moment introduces a new opportunity
With the future waiting patiently

What will we do differently
Does change even need to happen, not necessarily
The context with which you view is up to you
Just don’t hesitate to be something great by missing the lessons of what you’ve gone through
