Rule

Today with all these new “rules”, I’d rather be the exception
There is no reason to cultivate to this nonsense, no exemption
I want to move forward in life to be one of God’s extensions
So that I can further experience his blessings

Many people conform to what it is they think is the new norm
Each time experiencing a form of storm
These waves of emotion tackling their mind
Bruising their personalities each and every time

Depression has run rampant over the public
Everybody seems at a loss to what is causing it
Categorizing it as an illness
Little do they know their ignorance

We can’t solve problems when we ignore the variables
Each algorithm has a set of steps in order for a solution to be capable
Eliminating the centerpiece to the core of our understanding
Will continue to bury all the normalcy and comfort we wish to be feeling

Necessity

Being alone brings a great peace
Something that is so elegant, a great release
When one is alone physically
You can be comforted greater spiritually
Many people view certain lifestyles as lonely
When you’re never truly singular if you’ve come to know the Heavenly

This life can present quite the masquerade
People wearing many different masks each day
Hiding their true selves to one person or the next
Presenting a falsification of what is really going on in their head
Many seek after what it is they wish to find
Rather than the gifts they should desire from the Divine

Hope hasn’t died, just many people have given up
They’ve turned away from the truth and relied on what they can pour into a cup
Enough is enough, but only they can decide to change
There are those of us who provide the tools to present grace
Just many ignore the need for something greater
Because they get tied up in the fact that everyone has errors
Which should indicate to them the reason we all need a Savior

Pulse

A thread is all you need to make a pattern
So when times are tough stick with those who matter
Don’t try to go outside the lines
Keep holding tight to what’s right on the inside

There is always hope in tomorrow
For it begins a new day to move away from your sorrow
Letting go sometimes is the hardest thing
Especially if the one who hurts you the most is wearing a ring

Struggle is part of any process
The mountains and valleys help create progress
Without a test you never have a chance to build
So stick with this life and exercise your will

There’s always a chance

That you’ll learn something
That it means nothing
That it could possibly change everything

Let the heavens sing
Let the phones ring
Let the changes of love begin happening

Open your eyes to what the day brings
Have the purpose of life flow like a spring
Never forget that kindness is always worth practicing

Endure

Trying to hide
The fallen pride
Identity subsides
Anger collides
Then depression divides
Love can provide
An outlet to guide
So never give in to suicide

Barrier

Two spirits separated by geography
One is earthly, the other now heavenly
One can see the other, while one just remembers
Two seconds is far different for each member

What was once a flash is now a light
What was once darkness is now bright
The drastic changes from one to the next
Something to ponder, so complex

An instant is all it seems when it’s done
While living, it may seem like a lengthy run
Years are a measurement of time
But nothing can express the gap between these two sides

“Eternal”

This song was created for entry into a celebration contest hosted by the producer Dansonn who reached the 100K subscriber milestone on his Youtube channel. This track will also be part of a later album project. We had to enter via Youtube, so I figured I’d post that form of media for those of you who may want something visual to see while you listen. Thanks for your time!

Eternal

Listen while you read here

1st Verse:
Forever, Forever we’ve always been told never say never
Few things actually do last forever
But not many believe in those endeavors

It isn’t simple to navigate life’s adventure
Constantly living under pressure
So, many fall in line with certain pleasures

The definitions get skewed as many don’t know what to do

Love and marriage, commitments fallen through
Humanity and race, both of which fit the same shoe
However, nobody pays attention to what they once knew
As hatred and disdain seem to continue

You may ask yourself what exactly is it I should do
Not I as in me, but I as in you

The views of today haven’t been forever
They also don’t belong to the one most clever
For them to last or even become has been a tragedy
One that deserves to see its ending

You can’t ignore it, you seek a love that never ceases
Despite relationships having left you in pieces
The simplest answer to it all though is Jesus

2nd Verse:
Forever, Forever we’ve always been told never say never
Few things actually do last forever
But not many believe in those endeavors

Open your eyes, good and evil have been around
Doesn’t peace seem like a pleasant sound
Seek grace before you enter the ground
You only live once, has your life been found

The risks we take, the lives we make
Nothing ever goes as planned and isn’t the same
We try to create and formulate
All of standards around us that advance our state

I’m talkin’ mental and physical, not geographical
We’re so focused on ourselves instead of the critical
The information we consume needs to be biblical

We can’t make the same mistakes as yesterday
It’s important to learn consistency in this day and age
So many exclaim they want to see change
Then they need to step up and help turn the page

No excuses, don’t hide away or be shy
Christ didn’t sacrifice and rise again to watch us stand by

Closing:
You want love, forever
You want life, forever
You know the answer

This track was created
This community was created
Creation has been around forever

God Bless

Signify

There are times when you have plans
Wondering if what you’re thinking can be executed by your hands
Those thoughts of doubt and excitement sway this way and that
Then comes along a sign that signifies you need to step up to bat

When life throws you curves you need to remain on a straight pathway
Distraction looms off in the peripherals with the doubts of yesterday
Time only moves in one direction, so should your progress as it gets tested
Having lofty goals or high expectations of yourself isn’t necessarily negative

You just have to know how to handle the disappointments
Failure is bound to happen at a given interval, but that’s relevance
All aspects of the journey are of utmost importance
You just have to be willing to make the adjustments

Don’t hesitate to turn what’s sad to glad
Being able to always decipher the good from the bad
Because that which makes you mad isn’t viable
And not everyone close to you is someone reliable

Those closest can tend to be the biggest deterrents
And you don’t ever want to truly be selfish
But sometimes you need some alone time to improve your methods
When that time comes execute at every given second

Analyze all of the relationships
All of the hypocrites
All of the intelligence
And all of the significance

Which is greater your fun or passion
Your greed or compassion
Your pleasure or progress
Your money or success

Whatever you think should come next
Don’t hesitate to put your efforts to the test
Allow yourself a chance to fulfill the plan
Because if not for you it may never have the legs to stand

Significant

Grace fills the room each time you walk in
There isn’t another place I think I would’ve rather been
Each time I lay my eyes on you, time seems to rest
The moments and memories with you represent the best

I’ve been tested and tried, but each time you’re the one that shines
It wasn’t always easy to turn away from the ideas that were mine
However, with you… there is never a regret that enters my mind
You deserve the best from me at all times

You’ve made me a better man
You’ve saved me from the quicksand
When I’m lost, you’re always there to be found
With you, I’m never imprisoned by doubts

Our relationship isn’t something that is new
And even though times change, I’ll always love you
