Track Name: Looking Back (Intro)
Looking Back

I reminisce on the past right here presently/
You try to present future mishaps evidently/
Somethings been missing this whole time/
You didn't try to understand how I live life through rhyme/
But honestly I'm careless and I could care less/
But if less is more then I care more then I did before/
About how life changes and how I change with it/
Evolve or die off same idish/
You act mad skid-dish, your mind frame isn't fitted/
Your claim to fame was lame like John McCain's/
Lasted for a few months then lain to shame/
Praying your attitude gets hit by a train/
Cuz' it's so the same, shook up like a can of soda spraying/
Sporadically sparing with Spartans/
Sick of hearing wackness coming from martians/
I'm on my Nilbog, chill dog your just not there/
On some Dortrog, leak Eggnog when you don't care/
The only thing I spare is bowling pins/
Nothing in the world could fill the whole in him/
That the spirit leaks out of/
I stay Meek no matter/
How many Millz I might see/
I got a rugged style that's not to be taken lightly/
R.A. like a Sun God in olden Egypt/
I release un-kept scriptures of secrets/
I walk on C(Sea) Steps like Poseidon and snoop/
I remember when C-Set was part of the group/
We're still all troops like armies of guerrillas/
Rebellious culturalist, no one's iller/
And no one will ever fill the void/
The realness for some will make them so annoyed/
Soulja boys and young cats need to be grown men/
Instead they stay like peter pan and the industry blows them/
So then don't look back on any BS/
Look back at the greater things, just being here I'm so blessed/
Never hopeless, I wrote this dopeness/
Straight outta the Ziploc, so fresh/
For you other writers to note this/
Take it down and make sure it's jotted/
Replay this joint if you forgot it/
never getting rotted, renewed and plotted/
Double check and make sure their head is nodded, looking back/
Track Name: Controlled By Your Love
Controlled By Your Love

You got me in a magnificent trance/
You are the most significant romance/
That one man could ask for/
A glance from you would take down the whole task force/
I'm a zombie to your command/
The Universal Love Control at hand/
Opposites attract no Common factor/
I wanna run in fields with you, no tractors/
You are the demanding impactor/
Are love can't be measured with protractors/
Be exact or lose what we have/
Trustworthy of me being on the path/
I'd do anything thing for you at the drop of a dime/
When we are together, we defy time/
Making it cease to exist with reality/
You bring me to a Dream World all imaginary/
The highest rank underneath you/
What we share is true, not see through/
Shard of glass can't break us up/
Tough love, A heart that Is hit by an uppercut/
I won't stop believing on this Journey/
I can't Bail on our Bond, tell thee attorney/
What concerns me, nothing but the past/
But I have faith In our future, I know this will last/

(Say Love x3)
Track Name: My Heaven (36 Steps Up)
My Heaven (36 Steps Up)

You always seem to be my Heaven, I forget the hell/
You put me through, I never run and tell/
You put me under that magical spell/
You were the one to lift me when I fell/
I see pearly gates in your eyes/
The kiss I received puts me on cloud nine/
My name the whole crowds crying/
But for you I put every last one of them aside/
The fact that your always down to ride/
Makes it 100 times better when you replied/
Your the only one for me, eternally/
I never expected this journey to be/
Everything that is was/
Maybe that's because/
When I'm with you, you create a paradise/
what we've been through, no one could compare the price/
Of all that we shared/
There is never a need for a mending or a repair/
Your always there and of course it's vice versa/
Might buy you a nice purse or uh/
Anything for the fact of the matter/
Because you truly are the only thing that matters/
I rise to the occasion like cake batter/
Never a sign of fakeness or plaster/
2 words explain you, sheer perfection/
You're the only one to change my direction/
Directed to the lights that shine above/
The long waits are anticipations of love/
I always daydream and never seem to be awoken/
Your the jackpot won on a slot machine from a single token/
This feelings true, no hearts broken/
Even a Jester can see seriousness, no joking/
Anticipation grows stronger when we're far/
I wish for embrace when I see a shooting star/
All that I receive is yours too/
Not bonded yet by marriage but I'll never divorce you/
(My True Virtue)
Track Name: Seems So Yesterday
Seems So Yesterday (What Happened?)

It seems like it was yesterday when we met/
How time passes is so hard to accept/
Since everything happened I can't forget/
The happiest times to the times when we wept/
The late nights of insomnia, never slept/
Off of my feet you most frequently swept/
Look now where we are standing/
The standards we have seem so demanding/
Back then there was so much innocence/
You were a Queen and I was a prince/
Now I'm the king and your the princess/
Dukes and serfs worked there way up to impress/
So many double standards pass us by/
I can't help to ask myself why?/
The worst part is finding the answer/
Stupidity attaches to arguments like cancer/

(Hook 2x)
Constantly reminiscent on memories/
You set my pains at ease/
Thoughts drift off into the breeze/
My soul descends like Autumn leaves/

You sprang into my life around winter/
You stuck with me like a splinter/
I never decided to pull you out/
In the beginning there were simple doubts/
Now I have way better acknowledgements/
Heart evolved into stone and cement/
So hard to break but still possible/
Your my sunshine and I got pockets full/
Yesterday is here but a year away/
October fourth 2010 feels so today/
You reincarnated feelings from back then/
I remember subtle 12th fairway memories back when/
We used to ride the bus with Katherine/
To think now you make my heart backspin/
No break dancing or broken hearts/
Just a throwback mind that brings me to our start/

(Hook 2x)
Constantly reminiscent on memories/
You set my pains at ease/
Thoughts drift off into the breeze/
My soul descends like Autumn leaves/
Track Name: Hold On (R.I.P. Wayne Ferris)
Hold On (Dedication To Wayne Ferris)

Looking back at the past ones who passed/
How intricate life can be but it won't last/
One second they're here, the next they're gone/
The one's that you used to rely upon/
All I got is me and a couple of my brothers/
My lover, and the rest are all some st st stuttering/
Lying fakers with their minds trapped/
Looking back to see how I got where I'm at/
Clocks don't exist where my time's at/
Rewind the message to try to find that/
Reasoning why most of what happened did/
I think I finally grew up from a kid/
I still miss the the few that I cherished/
I don't understand why some perish/
I'm embarrassed, when I can't seem to hold on/
I appreciate everyone who made me strong/

(Hook 2x)
We need to be faithful and true/
Were would I be without all of you?/
The friends, fam, and the music/
If no one was here, It would be useless/

R.I.P. to my man Tommy Abreu/
We know your in Heaven but we miss you/
And to the homie of mine Kamar/
You're shining bright now like the sun and the stars/
And to my friend Will Da Real/
Your jokes stuck in my head and I'm laughing still/
To Brad's mom, Judy May Boone/
Your presence made the whole Earth bloom/
Abuelito, Abuelita, Grammy, HeyPop/
Your memory never makes my day stop/
To anyone who lost their Dad/
Or blamed God because they were mad/
It's difficult but you must learn to accept/
It's through you that they resurrect/
So have courage and live in the present tense/
That's the only way Life can make sense/

(Hook 4x)
Track Name: Life Is Looking Better (Thank You Hip-Hop)
Life Is Looking Better (Thank You Hip-Hop)

I think it was third or fourth grade/
Nearing the end of the 90's is when you played/
Poetry was already part of my vocabulary/
Never saw you at a live show but you widened my capillaries/
As well as my mind, body, and soul/
There seemed to be an almost magnetic pull/
Losing control on some mainstream songs/
Cd player playing till the double A's were gone/
I hated when the track came and you skipped/
I was writing lyrics, flipping the scripts/
But sticking to em' like glue sticks/
My Mom heard the cursing and started to lose it/
Ripped up the first sheet of raps and threw it/
When I realized your importance, I came back to it/
I was Terrible in middle school, better in high school/
College got better, Now It's just delightful/

(Break)

I just want to thank all the supporters/
The fore fathers, Hip Hop sites and reporters/
The DJ's, Emcee's, B-Boys, and graffiti artists/
The one's who struggled but pushed this the hardest/
The ones who stay true to themselves/
Who won't change for anyone else/
The founders of the real, rugged, and raw/
You helped me see life overall/
Track Name: Dreams Are Presently Here
Dreams Are Presently Here

Wondrous ponderings of thoughtlessness/
Can't remember what thought mess was next/
All the irritations and funky frustrations/
Disappear in air with dumb patience/
Understanding wisdom in a narrow window of time/
Complex with a simplest mind/
Configured the most significant design/
Deliver it so intricate with mines/
Destroy and rebuild in dreams surreal/
Wake up early with an emotional feel/
I realize life is more than what you ask for/
I'm thankful for everyone, you did more/
For me then ever expected, so generously/
Just some attentiveness, effortlessly/
Double adjective homicidal verbage/
Dispersed words urged splurges/

Hook:
Dreams at night...
This is life... (x4)

Don't even know how to attempt this 2nd 16/
Clouds softer than cream infiltrate my dream/
Of being higher than most above every coast/
Life is what you make it and I always overdose/
On love which is found deeper within/
It overcame trust and depleted the sin/
It's as if I pledged allegiance to him/
Hell ends here, where Heaven begins/
Trial and error until you finish the project/
Admiration of determination, not found yet/
By those who object to this/
Find greatness when you connect to it/
From the outer city limits to the depths of nature/
All praises due to the Architect Creator/
I dose off into a subconscious language/
All difficult feats have now been vanquished/

Hook:
Dreams at night...
This is life... (x4)
