Gloom

A distorted view of what’s new has gone through
What is it that we ever will do to save the crew
People manufacturing lies to cultivate a false truth
Hypnotizing the minds of those still in their youth

Rigorous changes seem to be in a constant swing
Navigating around common sense to persuade a different meaning
It’s unfortunate the circumstances we face
With the continued torture and farces all over the place

People being magnetized to the desperate definitions
Blindsided by the swell of information to blur the positions
Barriers no longer seem to hold up well
With wickedness continuing to break through from what I can tell

They don’t want you to believe you can overcome this pain
It would go against what it is they’re trying to explain
Steer clear of the darkness that is often spread
You want to be in the light when it is you’re dead

Suffering in silence

How we handle emotions differs
From one to the next we grow more flexible or stiffer
Some of us hold them in and others let them out
But we all share the same feelings of doubt

How we each grieve changes from one to the next
They say time heals all wounds, but it also continues to wreck
As we age more loss ensues all around to me and you
Many of us still trying to learn what exactly it is we should do

How to handle the situations and experiences each day
So that we can continue to excel in an efficient way
Progressing in our lives rather than remaining still
So that we can reflect a strong courageous will

Buried beneath the surface lies an echo of silence
We all suffer from something even if you may not see it
There’s no need to be ashamed since many others feel the same
After all this life we have isn’t a game

Variables

The winds shift as people argue over policies
Trying to persuade others to their senses personally
Talking about all sorts of different controversies
Gun laws and restrictions when it isn’t the material, but the person’s mentality

Time after time we’re witnessing multiple tragedies
Just lately many centered around one common city
Still people don’t see it, you’ve got to be kidding me
The hatred that spreads derives from our very own society

The messages that get taught and displayed
Recur constantly day after day, every single way
There is no end in sight when you tell people they are nothing
Trying to implant it into their heads that there’s no purpose residing

If that’s their outlook for themselves in their sight
Then how do you expect them to value someone else’s life
It doesn’t matter the background of the victims
When the perpetrator decides that their lives are also not worth it

Many of these shootings end in suicide
It’s because they feel it allows them to hide
Which is far from the truth since they essentially get glorified
Media giving fame to their name while the families of the lost are mortified

They don’t get away from the consequences
Yet many people want to feel that is the essence
However many of us know of a further judgment
That doesn’t get discussed since the media embellishes a different predicament

So what’s to stop many others from replication
If they feel they can get notoriety from and escape the situation
People are being driven into these false perceptions
Creating further conflict between citizens of every nation

Especially when you try to segregate humans
By painting the picture of something minor equating a huge difference
When the reality is we’re all the same race
Each uniquely made being identifiable through our face

Many variations can support that fact
The population count is one simplistic way to react
If people don’t appreciate themselves
How can we expect love for others not to remain rotting on the shelf

There is change that needs to occur for sure
Just the reality is nobody wants to acknowledge the proper
Faith and belief have almost became taboo
While violence and hatred have seemed to fill their shoes

Sad days with sad times
The gateway deciding not to shift the line
Light does still exist
Just this world seems to prefer the darkness

Knelt

Eyes closed, mind open
I fall to my knees with my heart broken
The images of a battered public
Violence and hatred continuin’ to make me sick

Can’t hesitate to settle down and pray
Since we need divine intervention on this day
Yes we’re all human, but all I see are monsters
We should be lovin’, but instead are torturers

Pick up the pace on this change they say
When in reality it’s more destructive than foul play
There are all these hesitations for the conclave
With far too many people enterin’ an early grave

What’s the case, why the tragedies
Within every place, you see countless felonies
I suppose evil has started the race quickly
So there’s no time for too good to go slow and steady

Don’t focus on the popularity
Do what’s actually right through morality
Each time I blink another soul is lost
Is this world really worth the cost

I almost can’t stand to see all that’s empty
The hearts of those who impose all the fallacy
Livin’ in these times it’s a harsh reality
Being as we just can’t move past our fantasy

No one’s perfect, not one country
Not one group, not the one you’re electing
I hold compassion and great sympathy
However the terrible nature continues with the clock ticking

Silent Traffic

Each day if you listen close you can hear voices
Those in the distance that don’t have much choice
They are living in a hidden hell
That is surrounded by our own little world, so we can’t tell

Many held against their will
Taken before they can really grow
Their lives being held still
All this happening and not many know

Many faces taken away on this day
Transported to the depths of this forceful array
It’s not ok, things need to change
However it’s so widespread, in so many ways

I can’t fathom the lives affected
They need to be saved and protected
They could be nearby and I’m unaware
While they’re stuck thinking no one cares

These hidden faces all over the place
Need to be discovered at a rapid pace
This trend needs to get shut down
It can no longer remain underground

It needs to be brought to the forefront
So that it can be ended before more has begun
Because this problem has persisted and grown
All across our lands as if it wasn’t known

Speak up and look for this tragedy
It can be hidden in plain sight
Don’t wait until it hits you randomly
Step out in faith to make things right

This explicit act needs to be cracked
These people deserve to get their lives back

To Say Goodbye

(Listen to the full track here) “To Say Goodbye” (Feat. Chris Ray)

1st Verse:
Please, please don’t leave me
I need you and so does our baby
Atleast wake up so he can look into your eyes
I’ll admit I’m a little selfish I want to see your smile one last time

I can’t believe what I thought would be routine
Turns out to be taking the life of my wifey
Why is this happening I can’t bear this loss
What did I do to deserve this, is it my fault?

We need you in our lives to make us both better
How can this family function without us together
I want my son to grow along with his Mother
Don’t go just yet, please find a way to be ok

Can you hear him crying, I’m trying to keep calm
Not sure how I can cope seeing the life leave your palms
I know you’re off to a better place, this is just a surprise
You are my everything, you weren’t suppose to die

2nd Verse:
I’m sorry that I couln’t be at your bedside
I’m left here at my house thinkin of all the memories
As each one passes by a tear drops from my eyes
I knew this day was coming with your disease

I just had hoped it still wouldn’t become a reality
You were always so kind and taught me a lot
You’re in my heart always, you won’t be forgotten
I wish I had one more moment with you than I got

Your life was a beautiful thing, you created a legacy
It was hard for me to let you go especially
I see you every time our family gets together
And it is a pleasure to always think back and remember

As each of us continues our lives
You live on within each of us, we show it with pride
It isn’t something any one of us would hide
Hard to believe it’s been over two years now though since you’ve died

3rd Verse:
I just received a phone call could it really be
We are suppose to gather the rest of the family
To say goodbye to a loved one that provided many good stories
This can’t be, I know life ends but why the one who calls me daddy

I don’t know if I can handle this as a part of me goes
There was so much I was looking forward to the Lord knows
If I could I would take your place
I can’t stand to see anything other than a smile on your face

I’m sorry my little baby, I can’t imagine your pain
I’d take it all away if I could, this is driving me insane
I want you to know that I love you so much
I’ll never forget your soft little touch

I wish you would come back to me
Cause the rest of my life I’ll be suffering
I know where you’re headed though will make you happy
But just know I’m looking forward to that day I see you again in glory

Tragedy

We see it on the TV
We see it on the big screen
When will people end tragedy
I’m sure that’s something we simply won’t see

We have shootings and stabbings
Countless rapings and bombings
All across the world, it is quite haunting

Today is a new day with yet more violence
Unexpected occurrences happening to innocents
Just when you think peace becomes relevant
Someone comes along to end the pleasure of it

Unnecessary actions coming from the blackness
Reaching out from the depths of the abyss
Our world is mistaken on how to counter this
So sometime soon we’ll suffer another experience

Where there is evil, there is also good
We just have to get that across and understood
Rise up and take the proper action to decrease
This senseless nonsense that keeps happening

Pray for yourselves as well as the victims
Because though you might be good others are sufferin
Lend a helping hand so they can again stand
We’re all here for each other to allow strength to expand
