Track Name: Control
Life is daunting, Yes I know
The running round till you can’t run round no more
The hustle and bustle bringing you to the floor
They shine up their diamonds
You’re getting ready for war
If I were in control
what side would I choose what would be my goal.
Would I drop to the beat of the poor
as the rich scramble round trying to score
Or would I ride to the rhythm of the rich
they got me so up tight that I got a nervous twitch
how about death caused by disease and all the bombs exploding over seas.

Ohhh ohh oh I don’t even know
Ohhh oh oh Im losing control
Tell me please, what should I do? I’m losing my mind I got some loose screws.
Tell me please, what should I do? What should I do?

I don’t want to control, all the guns that you got and the money you throw
I don’t want to control, all the killing and spilling the blood to the floor
Pick yourself up of the floor
Stress dragging you down you cant take it no more
Love and life hit you to your core
feeling like your never gonna win this war
Work all day to bring home jack
Sleep a few hours just to go right back
Whip crack your Whack pick up the slack
Keep your head straight don’t swerve off track
Is this the life you want to lead
a world smothered in frustration and greed
So I keep toking up on this weed
Oh I keep toking up on this weed.

I don’t want to control, all the guns that you got and the money you throw
I don’t want to control, all the killing and spilling the blood to the floor
Anymore anymore oh no no no
Track Name: Last Drag
I sit and I think
Pull once and its on
I know
Know what
A few more and its gone
All white red tip
Why is this taking so long?
What are we doing?
What are we really doing?


I sink as I think something is going so wrong
I'm lost and I’m gone there's no place I belong
This world a strange place whats really going on?
Take one last drag as I sing this song


Take one last drag and its dragging me down
The world keeps spinning me round and round
Everybodys looking at me.


I sit n I think
I get lost in my thoughts
This world keeps spinning I'm jus stuck and I rot
I rot into this mother we call earth
I lie in the same place this bud did birth

I drink as I think something is going so wrong
I'm lost and I’m gone there's no place I belong
This world a strange place whats really going on?
I drop my thoughts as I sing this song

Take one last drag and its dragging me down
The world keeps spinning me round and round
Everybodys looking at me.
Track Name: Woman
You make it hard to trust a woman
Your mind always on the go
Always with the back and fourth
Just got’ah take it slow
Slow down and you might
find something that you like
be it out of sight
be it lost and in fright
Im lost to my self
Everything seems attached to wealth
Luck f*** how to compete
Walking past the kids on the street
No shoes on their feet
Being treated like pieces of meat
What happened to the love for one another
What happened to the love for each other


It’s the coming of the end
And you're alone here my friend
It’s the glory of the fall
As the stories told from one to all
It’s the end in sight
As you're trying with all your might
To suffocate the bad and bring back the
Love you and me had



I struggle with frustrations and reasons
Cant let them go
What’s with these changing seasons
I'm freezing lets go
Go out and party all night
Till you see that red light
Boy yeah I said it that's right
Boy you better stand up and fight
Fight for what you got not what you lost and forgot
Fight for the good and not the bad
Think of all the chance that you had
Coming at you each and everyday
Coming at you in each and every way
What happened to the love for one another
What happened to the love for each other


It’s the coming of the end
And you're alone here my friend
It’s the glory of the fall
As the stories told from one to all
It’s the end in sight
As you're trying with all your might
To suffocate the bad and bring back the
Love you and me had
Track Name: Freedom Reggae
As I sit thinking
This room it gets colder
Just thinking ‘bout the future
Every second jus getting older
They shake their fingers at me
But they don’t see the darkness oh that I see
They try to take away everything
But they cant take away my freedom from me

So I say freedom reggae
Freedom reggae
Try to take me reggae save me freedom reggae

So why? hold on to your money
That aint the reason that she love me,
So up to the stars above we,
We look up and wonder how we went under
Oh soar soar can anybody hear me
Oh more more in comes that old feeling
I'm still lost in the dork alone looking for that spark
And so soon it starts and so soon it starts


Freedom reggae
Freedom reggae
Oh and I say my freedom cant be bought or sold
Freedom reggae

Soar soar can anybody hear me
Oh more more in comes that old feeling
I'm still lost in the dork alone looking for that spark
And so soon it starts and so soon it starts
Track Name: Falcon (ft. Mista D)
If you need some help, just be nice
You'll be amazed how far that'll go in your life
(Hear what I'm saying)
And to be yourself is good advice
That's when you know that you've got it right
(yeah, you've got it right)
Mista D be rocking on down

Be tweetin your friends 'bout the jams

Where echoed sounds can rebound
by the pound off the ground
Yeah we get down in your town
when we found and around
Got give some back to the people
For the people, yeah
So come on now - break it down
