Casual

We peer out the window
See all the other traffic flow
Life flies by like, “where’d it go”
Once a child, now we’re full grown
Responsibilities stack up
How do you see the cup
Half full or half empty
So much to be distracting
Everyone vying for our thoughts
Questioning everything we bought
They call it research invading our privacy
Seems a little off logically
We watched movies about aliens invading
Never thought my life would be probed by agencies
So many thoughts, so little time
We all now walk a fine line
Nobody can make a gesture
Without feeling a ton of pressure
You see the conspiracy
Then everyone says you’re crazy
What if they just pay attention to the reality
A lot of what is considered real is fake
All for entertainment’s sake
When we witness a rift
We should see it as a gift
Because we need those that are different
The same ol’ same isn’t change
A continuous spiral of doing the wrong things
Gatekeepers trying to keep the truth out
People think it’s nonsense since it isn’t their doubt
Round and round we can go with discussion
The plot twists and ideas of separation
So many try to define differences that aren’t there
Making you numb to the feeling of wanting to care
Everyone wants their wealth to multiply
Yet their thoughts of others only want to divide
Command and conquer is one given tactic
It’s sad that many want to embrace that bracket
All these headlines are a miserable racket
Nothing we should hear if we want cheer
Just because we are in a different year
Doesn’t mean we should accept everything
There is still right and wrong in our living
Laws exist as does violence
So why does protection get met with resistance
Wrongful accusations are becoming persistent
Trying to create a dialogue that isn’t coherent
Yet still many believe everything they see
Instead of taking the time to learn correctly
There are many manipulative strategies in marketing
Hooking the minds of individuals unpleasantly
Think how it is you decide
Where have you gone on this ride
Are you comfortable enough not to hide
Can you allow yourself to express what’s on the inside
What is it that has dominated your focus
Are the proper things getting noticed

Sorrows

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

1st Verse:
All these people around the globe
Seeking recognition through likes and follows
What they fail to realize is even those with them
Still feel the sense of emptiness within

I see it all the time those receiving attention
Remaining in a state of indecision
Always craving more than what’s in store
Leaving themselves caught in an infinite chore

Many people there to build up their attitude
Yet they still feel depressed to a high magnitude
It’s all smiles, laughs, and gratitude in sight
But then they admit just how hard it is to fight

It takes a lot of courage to bare it all
And it takes even greater strength to stop the fall

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

2nd Verse:
There are many women victim to addictions
And it isn’t even their volition, but another’s perversion
A sad state of affairs that leaves many in despair
With many feeling too afraid no one cares

We see it all too often harassment and violence
These people don’t deserve to sit in silence
At the same time the root cause is slipping away
As we continue to allow morals to decay

Many think certain approaches are ok
When it really only attaches a bandaid
If you want the cure you need to hit the source
Which for some reason is debated away of course

Look at the masses of survivors reaching out
We need to realize the true evil that needs to be taken down

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

3rd Verse:
It seems there is truly an outbreak
Nobody forgiving themselves for past mistakes
Saturating their current mind state
With elements that they can’t change

What’s done is meant to be learned from
So why are so many limiting their options
Not giving themselves a chance to move forward
Instead deciding failure is what they’ll go toward

It’s heartbreaking knowing so many doubt
Constantly putting themselves down
I wish when I looked out and about
There weren’t so many excruciating frowns

The forecast seems to be cloudy with a chance of rain
As tears are falling while people bind themselves in chains

4th Verse:
People no longer approach marriage with full force
It’s like they find comfort in the notion of divorce
Many broken homes leaving kids stranded
Then they wonder why discipline never landed

Selfish reasons seem to be in every season
All year around there’s relational treason
Cheating has never been so rampant
I don’t know how people can stand it

Thinking they can get away with the act
Or just simply don’t contain any tact
It’s hazardous to the characteristic of trust
Which has always been somewhat of a must

All the dilemmas and problems circling around out there
Is it just me or does anyone else find it strenuous to prepare

Good Book

Intro:
Often times I get asked how can I not do this or that
Why did I choose to do this or that
How or why, why or how
Well here’s a little snippet

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

1st Verse:
Nurture over nature or nature over nurture
The evils are circling around us like vultures
Trying to slip in under the guise of cultures
Many of us don’t realize we’re in torture

All the depression they say that we’re sick
As if there is no other option
I’m sorry that isn’t how life goes
We’re all meant to have some hope

Can’t you see society is on a slippery slope
You offer a little faith and they say nope
Trying to manipulate what it is we feel
Look at the epidemic of sex appeal

It’s like the lottery, trying to find shine
Where has it all gone, this isn’t fine
There’s more questions than answers
But the answers reside in the good word

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

2nd Verse:
People want to be near me or fear me
I appreciate your perspective honestly
But I can’t even define myself accurately
There’s not one of us that lives perfectly

I always try to do what is right
That doesn’t mean that I’m free from blight
Mistakes have been made over the course of life
It’s just the process of learning what to be like

Despite having a rock solid blueprint
There are times when one falls to temptation
Every situation presents a radically different decision
But are we making the ones we can live with

Precision comes in our creation
Our free will is what brings affliction
The choices give us various directions
But real forgiveness comes from one foundation

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

3rd Verse:
They say the mirror holds the best reflection
Yet our thoughts possess the important projection
What it is we think effects our daily regimen
And how we feel determines our actions

If iron sharpens iron then why berate
Our tongue like a sword cuts deeply with hate
Edification and support bring forth fate
Positivity and kindness being spread is always great

Don’t get it twisted love remains
Despite humanity’s efforts to use it in vain
Love is something that can never be slain
So feel free to hop aboard the proper train

We’re destined to succeed because Christ made us free
God is real and still many refuse to believe
Sometimes you need to believe in order to see
There is proof out there for you to receive

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

Needs

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

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!

Slip Out the Back

Listen to Full song here:

Intro:
Yeah, some of you know me
I’m laid back, but take life seriously
Seems like an oxymoron I know
But life is short, so hard I go

Held captive in the eyes of society
Locked up within my diverse creativity
I’m stuck straddlin’ the fence
When will peace begin to commence

I’ve seen the rises and the falls
Equal circumstances for us all
When the tough times come its difficult
But somebody has to rise up and answer the call

So listen here…

1st Verse:
I’m no saint nor claim to be perfect
My heart and mind aim to disrupt the darkness
I try to give what I can in all situations
Stick with me if you need some comfort and protection

I occupy this life in which I was given
Inhalin’ the very same air that you are breathin’
Despite the similarities of bein’ human
We’re all unique and special specimens

This earth is temporary as is the entertainment
The drama isn’t worth your investment
Important aspects are what need your attention
The time we have is too short to go in the wrong direction

We get told lies in a false sense of projection
When we need truth to inspire accurate perceptions
Likewise when we look in the mirror what do we see
Someone upliftin’ or one that takes away with greed

2nd Verse:
I’m no hero, but will do what it takes
Even if you’re a stranger I’ll treat you the same
When bullets fly I’ll stand in the way
I’m not ashamed to be a gentleman these days

I’ve abstained in a world that’s fully engaged
The measurement of pleasure has many caged
Being released is easy just read the B-I-B-L-E
Perhaps conduct a few more acts of decency

Many these days are just too unwillin’ to progress
They’d rather stay piled up within the mess
Continuin’ to ask the right questions, but don’t like the answer
So they tend to fall back into what’s familiar

You’re far better than you give yourself credit for
Remember that anything is possible if you explore
I’m not the judge obviously, it’s your life to improve
I believe you can and will, you just have to choose to

I’m a Soloist

It isn’t the matter of the fact
That holds me back in this facet
More or less the feeling in my head
That will carry on with me until I’m dead
Everyone says there is “the one”
Well not for this man under this sun

When I walk I don’t feel alone
When I sit and watch TV by myself
There isn’t a moment that passes when I say
Where is the woman that I should be with today

Me, myself, and I isn’t what it is about
The one who made me still is there to carry
Every emotion and thought that passes throughout
Allowing me to continue doing what I do

Many questions continue to dwell within
About why I am not one who is chosen
To experience a lovely life with a wife
The moments of making love and having kids
But in all honesty those ideas aren’t really relevant
In my day to day thinking I usually imagine
What it is I can do to improve upon who I currently am
For the sake of others who have yet to think what I have

I am uplifted and supported by the highest power
My Lord and Savior is my strong tower
While I love kids and encounter prospects
I know it isn’t what is envisioned for my happiness
Because it isn’t about what I would want
But rather my path and purpose from God

So to see my friends and family get married
It’s a happy time for me, but when I am asked
About my relationship status
I like to make it clear that I am indeed “solo”
Yet I am not by any means alone
Because the one who is with me is always loving
Will never let me down, the true face of trustworthy

I am a unique individual as are the rest
I am not pleased by many things like other humans
I am not driven to pursue the things many others do
I look to one book and not the popular view of each outlook
I can do without a lot of what this world has to offer
Which is what repeats every time I talk with the Father

These thoughts and feelings that I have aren’t understood
By those who surround me, that is how I know it is Heavenly
Even though I am solo through your eyes
I have all I need within me sent from the skies

Clock Out

Pacing the internal avenue
Striving through different methods
I’ve met with the man who doesn’t know what to do
His situation just can’t get out of his head

Asking the Lord for advice at a rapid pace
This man has the look of exhaustion on his face
He has expressed his mess
And looks to succeed and be blessed

Just time after time the blockade hits
Preventing his progress
So depression and doubt continue to loop through
Because there is still the wonder of what to do

Continuing to see the branched pathways
It is getting to be enough
There seems only to be one way
That makes everything else less tough

He has told me that he just wants to clock out
There has been too much stress throughout this test
Hates having the overwhelming feeling of doubt
Always surrounding him in a frantic mess

So I sit back and ponder his outlook
I have no idea what to say other than it will be ok
There isn’t any easy way to live outside of the book
That the Lord has wrote to guide your stay

The confusion continues and questions always arise
The man still has the doubts behind his eyes
I continue to try and uplift his situation
Because deep down I know destruction is not an option

For if this man were to fall
Instead of figuring out his call
We both would die
Because I am him and he is I

Borrowed Time

Time ticks and passes by
Each day becomes more and more streamline
Repetitive actions taken to live
Yet I know there is more to give

Truthful linings in my brain
Telling me to do more and not complain
To answer the call that requires effort
Not to quit the journey that will help convert
Those who need that gap filled
To press on and encourage the strong willed

Sometimes it feels that life is just going by
No time to waste because it seems to fly
Quicker and quicker each time you stand still
Which is probably why these actions need to be fulfilled

And still the moment comes where I don’t know why
But it feels like I’m livin on borrowed time
And still the moment comes where I don’t know why
But it feels like I’m livin on borrowed time
And still the moment comes where I don’t know why
But it feels like I’m livin on borrowed time

Cataclysmic emotions running through this earth
Trying to build my efforts, yet not knowing much of their worth
Still trying to make that difference you seek
In order to help strengthen those who are weak

Inspiring those who have one last wish
To be all they can be without any hindrance
Making them optimistic toward their goals
So they don’t regret the percentage they put in
Trying to maximize their potential ten fold

Continuing on not knowing how to feel
Wondering if everything around us is the real deal
Asking questions to only get further confused
Is something I have in common with all of you
Yet there is a comfort that gets me through

And still the moment comes where I don’t know why
But it feels like I’m livin on borrowed time
And still the moment comes where I don’t know why
But it feels like I’m livin on borrowed time
And still the moment comes where I don’t know why
But it feels like I’m livin on borrowed time
