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

I Will

Opening:
Today it’s used as an insult
Everybody rushin’ to this new cult
People want to crucify religion
Tryin’ to make fun of us Virgins
It’s crazy, get use to it… we’re different

1st Verse:
Many people doubtin’
My integrity and its silly
I’m genuine, yes a virgin
Not interested in your mimicry

I’ve climbed the mountains to abstain
Runnin’ from the temptations each day
You ask how is it possible to do so
Well, it’s been a mindset from the get go

I’ve been straight forward from the start
A man of my word with Christ in my heart
I never allowed an opportunity to waver
No matter how many times I might’ve craved her

Many women with such beauty
I’ve remained true and I’m nearin’ thirty
I’ve never been one to cheat
So why would I slip up before obtainin’ a wifey

You and I are obviously different
I don’t demand respect I just get it
The women aren’t mine to objectify
There’s a far greater reason they’re alive

So to seek only one thing is despicable
I’m not exaggeratin’, I’m bein’ quite literal
The notion of seekin’ temporary pleasure
Isn’t the reason we’ve been given this life adventure

Now close your eyes and ask
Why you want acceptance but diminish another’s tracks

Chorus:
These days people are so concerned with the feels
Little do they know the reality of what’s real
I’ve been accepted and rejected, what’s the deal
I’m not concerned with their judgment, so no need to appeal (x2)

I don’t buy into the gossip
And I’d rather not deal with your problems

I will maintain my virgin status, I will… I will
I will do it for the only King reignin’ right now
I will, I will… I will

Yeah, I won’t give up on this commitment
Just to appease your addictions

I will maintain my virgin status for the true King reignin’
Yes I will, I will… I will

2nd Verse:
Now that I’m older people focused on marriage
As if they don’t have enough to fit on their carriage
I’m in no rush to delve into the mixed messages
I’ve made peace with the percentages

I’m set to ride out my life just fine
I don’t need sex to feel alive
So many differentiations you’ll see
But conformity to self just isn’t me

There’s always an attraction
It’s hard to avoid women when in motion
Even if your life is stagnant
It’s innate to have that passion

People look at my past puzzled
Goin’ through a big college, but kept it muzzled
It wasn’t easy as there were plenty
Of offers to go about fornicating

I may be stronger than the average
But not some super hero, just a simple advantage
I’ve been blessed to know value
To experience what love is from someone true

God doesn’t test me to fail, but failure is an option
Evil exists and many want to alter my situation
However I’m beyond their attempts to slay
That respect I hold for each and every lady

Chorus:
These days people are so concerned with the feels
Little do they know the reality of what’s real
I’ve been accepted and rejected, what’s the deal
I’m not concerned with their judgment, so no need to appeal (x2)

I don’t buy into the gossip
And I’d rather not deal with your problems

I will maintain my virgin status, I will… I will
I will do it for the only King reignin’ right now
I will, I will… I will

Yeah, I won’t give up on this commitment
Just to appease your addictions

I will maintain my virgin status for the true King reignin’
Yes I will, I will… I will

Interval:
If you’re a virgin… don’t be ashamed, be proud of what you are

Chorus:
These days people are so concerned with the feels
Little do they know the reality of what’s real
I’ve been accepted and rejected, what’s the deal
I’m not concerned with their judgment, so no need to appeal (x2)

I don’t buy into the gossip
And I’d rather not deal with your problems

I will maintain my virgin status, I will… I will
I will do it for the only King reignin’ right now
I will, I will… I will

Yeah, I won’t give up on this commitment
Just to appease your addictions

I will maintain my virgin status for the true King reignin’
Yes I will, I will… I will

Closing:
Be proud… don’t be ashamed, be proud
Don’t listen to all the negative hateful sounds
Stay true to you and that significant other you’ll commit to

Numb/Soar

Listen to Full song here:

Intro:
Ladies and Gentleman, I hope you’re doing good today
I’m aware there are many problems of differing varieties
It is my hopes that you aren’t letting them hold you back
But rather pressing forward with the correct attack

If you’re not…
Then what is it that you’re waiting for
We get this one life, so it’s your time to soar

1st Verse:
We lay in wait
Like a lion does for its prey
Expectations set high
As the bar lifts our effort runs dry

It’s a tragedy within a calamity
The next best thing is repelling
We climb, we work, we try
All for reasons some choose to deny

Closed up in the mission, left wishin’
That we had one last chance at ambition
It’s a dire situation in this life
Where hope and love need to arise

People beaten and enslaved
Not much different from yesterday
We thought it was gone, but to our dismay
It grew greater, under the radar of our play

Many trapped and embedded in disaster
It’s time to write a whole new chapter
Stand up and believe in better activity
Nobody can prevent you from achieving prosperity

Hook:
Believe it or not you’re still livin’
Look on high to become forgiven
Wash away the pain and mistakes
You’re too valuable for anyone to break

Don’t let anyone press you down anymore
You get this one life and it’s your time to soar (x2)

2nd Verse:
Some people want to
slay you, play you, and betray you
With that said some want to
Protect you, love you, and comfort you

All you need to do is choose
Who they are and if they lose
Because you should live to win
Don’t get held back by their sins

The burden is already great
Don’t adopt the influence of hate
That demeaning behavior is stale
It’ll never allow you to truly prevail

All it takes is one spark to begin the fire
The one that lights up your inner desire
So worried about what others think
It’s leavin’ you drained, spiralin’ down the sink

Get off the brink of negative situations
Don’t entertain suicide or slip into depression
Listen to the good word and His design
Allow Him to revive all your vital signs

Each day you awake begins anew
Sometimes it’s best to leave your crew
Evaluation of said steps is critical
As we just get one life to help create miracles

Closing (x2):
Don’t let anyone press you down anymore
You get this one life and it’s your time to soar

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

Busted

Listen Here:

Lyrics:
They sit back and relax
Countin their drugs and cash
Holdin their guns and bottlecaps
Vicious decisions to protect the stash

What has this world come to
Hidden messages in each music crew
Symbolism, words, and the mental craft
I’ve found you I see your life raft

Symbiotic and parasitic leeches
Goin’ against the good word and what it teaches
Providin’ the outlet to go after what pleases
Rather than moral conduct that appeases

I can’t shake your hand with that fire
Burnin’ through your fans eardrums
Tryin’ to control their inner desires
With nonsensical fallacies and conundrums

How dare you step up to the plate
Cuttin’ corners with lies and red tape
Thinkin you’re an overlord or bossman
With your fans abiding as your minions

Nah, that’s now how it works
Brainwashin’ isn’t the new way to clean
Wake up to the realities of what it is I mean
Pierce this torment that lies beneath

You can’t think that this is healthy
The escape that they try to parlay
Isn’t the purpose you’re meant for
Break the chains so you can be restored

It’s never too late, nah… it’s never too late

Busted you are in this act
You simply can’t hide the facts
Very little time left to even react
The battle is real you’re the impact

How do I know you ask
Because it is your life in the balance
Step by step, day by day I pray
That you won’t be lost in the grey

It’s clear cut, the clock is tickin’
What kind of life are you leadin’
Ceremonious tides are risin for the wrong reasons
Pleased to meet you Mr. and Mrs. Treason

Don’t fool yourselves in the pressure
The world around you is in torture
A fix is necessary for your own survival
Choose the light or dark, no more denial

In life you’re the catalyst
Nobody else can deal with your experience
How you see and believe is up to you
What kind of influence gives you the clues

These artists could care less
They want your money in their pockets
Doin’ what they want to persuade
Blurrin’ the lines of what is deemed ok

Callin’ woman certain names
It’s almost as if it is hide and seek
Except you won’t find me in their game
I’m ashamed to know dudes can be that weak

They feel as if it gives them a gain
Chasin’ after stardom, a boost to fame
Pitiful if you ask me, but it seems to work
Ladies by their side, as their takin’ cash like clerks

It’s madness that it has gone this far
All in the public eye to see, so much heresy
Long established now in our country
This isn’t your kingdom, but it’s mainstream

What will it take to break this chain
It’s common knowledge it produces mass amounts of pain
There’s nothin’ worth this degradation of the kind
So will you help bust this trend or continue actin’ blind

Hate me now

Listen Here:

Core Verse:
They keep trying to pin me in
Locked up and engaged in their own sins
I’m free man, I don’t need a muzzle
You’re the one fadin’ quick toiled in trouble

The wicked has a hold on your views
Caught up in the public’s eye actin’ a fool
Headlock, head knod, Mr. yes man
No thanks bro that’s not a part of my plans

Tryin to keep my spirituality at bay
Is a losin battle that will never give you victory
I’m frozen in place held within God’s grace
You feel fantasy, I feel the ecstasy of His Holy place

One day I’ll have jewels in my crown
Overcome the pains of today that you provide
I’ll paint my own picture and revive the towns
Yeah, you know who it is pure times to rise by your side

I can’t believe you still resist belief
When all that’s left is His creative feats
I’m stunned you go by His measure of time
Yet want to recite every hateful line

You’re crazy and if you didn’t like me before, that’s fine

In the Rain

Listen Here:

1st Verse:
I live a simple life in a complex time
I’m both happy and sad, I don’t know why
Each day I roll over and open my eyes
Put one foot down after the other it’s all so dry

I think about all the people in hard times
All the worthless reasons they’re committin’ crimes
The single Moms dabbin’ their children’s eyes
Prostitutes always askin’ themselves why

I’m confused each day I walk my life
Never knowin’ what the next step will provide
I try my best to look through other’s eyes
‘Cause I know pain is great during these times

I question my participation as the world spins
There’s nothin’ I’d like more than to see some grins
Time flies and we all have a unique purpose
As I rhyme the clock ticks and I acquire a new wish

Many yell go fish, well that’s what I’m doin’
Lookin’ to provide a smidge of inspiration
By deliverin’ a message in a positive direction
But I’m just one man on a common mission

Dear God give me my wings so I can fly
Put your words in my voice to soar these skies
Let me feel your touch in mine
Let my heart beat love all the time

Chorus:
Lord let your blessings fall

To rid this world of all the pain, pain, pain, pain

God please have your light shine through it all

After all we’re all the same, same, same, same… in the rain

Bridge:
Open your minds and hearts
Nobody will treat you any better
Look deep within for the answers
His DNA etched in your beings every letter
This I know is what it’ll take for you to grow
Gettin’ past these stresses to finally let His grace flow

2nd Verse:
It’s not hard for me to sympathize
When out look out into this abyss of lies
The thing to do is push forward till I die
I never plan on givin’ up on my drive

I’m saturated in the breadth of life
Protected by the Lord when I’m facin’ strife
I pray every day and every night
His time to come back is in sight

As they all seem to fall, I start to rise
‘Cause if not for people like me
The darkness would keep growing
It just can’t keep on happening

So at this point in time let’s evaluate
What is it that you want in life
Does it involve somethin’ great
Or is it self absorbed filled with hate

‘Cause I know despite ethnicity
We are all the same race of humanity
Enough of this divide in society
Let’s beat the odds of the negativity

Erase the pains of violent tendencies
Start off tomorrow with a new strategy
We gotta get better than this I believe
Please Lord let your grace be seen

Chorus x2:
Lord let your blessings fall

To rid this world of all the pain, pain, pain, pain

God please have your light shine through it all

After all we’re all the same, same, same, same… in the rain
