Get Through This

Her buried soul lies 6 feet down
Under my feet and below the ground
If only I'd been more aware
Now my goodbyes are nothing but a prayer
To agnostic gods

Oh, Thought you were leaving
But you're going back home
I'll give it a go
This life without you but you already know
I'll never get through this alone 

Maybe we'll meet again sometime
We'll be dancing and singing up there in the sky
Scattered Trees and cluttered stars
The recipe to forge my scars
Of losing you

Oh, Thought you were leaving
But you're going back home
I'll give it a go
This life without you but you already know
I'll never get through this alone (I cant take this)
I'll never get through this alone
And I said

Oh, Thought you were leaving
But you're going back home
I'll give it a go
This life without you but you already know
I'll never get through this alone


Disappear

Now I feel you
Under my skin

What would you do
If it your lake ran dry?
You've lost the confidence to speak
Your heart, it barely beats, you don't know why 

But this hell
You're in
Doesn't mean the end 
And I'll tell
You're friend
You're on your way to go 

So talk to me like it's your last night
And run to me like I'm all your life
But please
Don't disappear

What would you say
If it overflowed?
All your thoughts spill from the brim
And fall like poison on your skin
Your weakness shows 

But this hell
You're in
Doesn't mean the end 
But I'll tell
You're friend
You're on your way to go 

So talk to me like it's your last night
And run to me like I'm all your life
But please
Don't disappear 

Talk to me
Run to me

So talk to me like it's your last night
And run to me like I'm all your life
But please
Don't disappear


Beautiful Night (Ft. Damiano the Don)

Crack a bottle of wine
Maybe 8 or 9
We'll feel it this time
In the morning
Let me take some time
Swap stories all night
Share lyrics and rhymes
Till the daylight

The slow fire
Desire's creeping up on me
It's as if Moses proposes to open up the sea
We lost grief
Relief is walking through our door
Don't forgive me, keep giving me more
It's a beautiful night
With some beautiful people

Damiano The Don:
I come alive in the night-time
I'm a God when I write rhymes
I'm so fire, they trying to put me out
But I got big homies that be looking out
Ain't gon damage me if I got family
Channel the medic in me
Ain't with the mannequin speech
Tonight's the night for us to lose control
They got me taking more shots than the cops on patrol
Me and the crew and the clouds
Like precipitation, anticipation
Celebration, we gonna take this
World by storm like alien invasion
Rebuild the nation
Room smelling the dankest
I just wanna get high have fun
Spit a bunch of raps and after that get drunk
It's a beautiful night like Kilani in armor
Peace and power to the people no charger

It's a beautiful night
With some beautiful people
Tell me what this means to you
I'll tell you what it means to me
Tell me what this night is
Beautiful
And the temperature is rising
Past 98 degrees
Can you feel it?
It's a beautiful night
With some beautiful people

Lyrics

The Gate

I was caught off guard
I was unprepared
Memories in parts
Never to be shared 

I hope you found your peace
In all your happy lies
Cause all that's left of me has died 

Every day
I erase a little more of you
Rewrite, replace, recycling plastic blues 
I'm calling to the stars
To shine a bit more bright
Cause my mind is darker than the night

And all these parts of me
Are finding ways to other people's hearts
And all this love; it's so cliché
Enslaved, expired days take hold of us 

I'm at the corner of the gate
Of my past mistakes
I see you everyday
But still I run away, run away 

The clock strikes 10:00
About the thousandth time
How long
Have I hit play, press stop, rewind?
And I recall a time when I did not know love
If only that were now because

All these parts of me
Are finding ways to other people's hearts
And all this love; it's so cliché
Enslaved by expired that days take hold of us 

I'm at the corner of the gate
Of my past mistakes
I see you everyday
But still I run away, run away


Here & Now

It's a long trip to nowhere
This here and now
Just waiting to be found
It's harder than I thought just to get there
It's like a dream
Inside reality

Look on the other side of now
Travel through this wave of sound
Take a moment to be here
A silence heard so loud and clear 

It's such a strange disposition
The state we’re in
Of consciousness spread thin
And I can only trust intuition
Now that I've seen
The wonders that it brings

Look on the other side of now
Travel through this wave of sound
Take a moment to be here
A silence heard so loud and clear


False Alarm

I missed it all
To a warning call
A prisoner of charm
A false alarm

Fooled by ghosts
Angelic hosts
Danced around my head
But now I'm trapped instead

I'll choose to wait
Until break of day
But the sun never shows
In this shaded home

It's so wrong
To hold on
Don't last
Too long 

In this hollow dream
You are all I see
What a heavenly hell
If I'm lost don’t tell

It's taken course
An external source
Is playing it's part
To control my heart 

It's so wrong
To hold on
Don't last
Too long 

You had time
To rewind
But the film split
And sun-dried 

I missed it all
To a warning call
A prisoner of charm
A false alarm 

It's so wrong
To hold on
Don't last
Too long 

You had time
To rewind
But the film split
And sun-dried


Get This Far

I'm alive
At least I think so
Last time I checked 

I'm doing fine
But the doctor says
There's something that I missed

It's a lie
When they tell you
That there's something just not normal

Every time
They say there's no way
That you could be the way you are
To get this far

Get this far

It's getting old
All this talk that says
I'm bleeding from the core 

Check the pulse
This heart is beating
Like a bass drum hit the floor

It's about time
I self evaluate this world I live in
Up to the sky
Wherever I choose I will fly
To get this far 

Get this far

Don't even try to break
You don't intimidate me
And you know what best for you
Stop there have you forgotten
My skulls not stuffed with cotton
And I think it's time you move

 

Secrets

Back in high school
You and I were one in the same
Skipping class to
Hit the road and make an escape 

Swapping secrets by the side of the bay
Talking about all our most embarrassing days
I thought that with you that my words would be safe
But recently I knew that something had changed

You said
That you were
The only one that knew that
So give me
A reason
To give you any trust back

I was an island
I was bearing all the pain on my own
Your lifeboat provided
Me a way to make it to shore
Telling you was a weight off my chest
Maybe someday I'll live like the rest
I didn't realize
That by telling you I was taking a chance

You said
That you were
The only one that knew that
So give me
A reason
To give you any trust back 

Cause Secrets are the only thing I ever wanted
My Secret is the only thing I ever wanted back

You're the only the that I wanted (x2)
You're the only thing that I wanted back 

You said
That you were
The only one that knew that
So give me
A reason
To give you any trust back 

Cause Secrets are the only thing I ever wanted
My Secret is the only thing I ever wanted back


The Author

Timothy had everything that he'd need
A wife, a job, a home
He worked in a tower spending his hours
Calling and answering phones 

His words to a page
He screams and he shakes
To watch it go
His pen, as a knife
Carves their ink-bleeding lies
Into stone 

Starting bright and early
Out by 6:30
Walking into the fire

Returning back in ashes
Rusted steel he crashes
Back towards his desire

His hands grip the wheel of the poetry that heals
His endless grief
The more he drove away from all his convoluted ways
He finally breathed 

That's not the only way the story goes
Each word's a double-sided, coded note
And all she sees is apathy
As he's re-writing history
The Author's novel writes the Author home


Dawn

Falling leaves
Will take their time
Restless heads
Will sleep tonight
As flowers fade
They have to find
When winter comes
Spring's close behind

Beauty kills
And glistens white
And icy blanket
Eternal night
But frost can melt
From morning sun
I'll shed my skin
As daylight comes  

I'll run forever
If peace is what I'll find
We can go together
Our soul's will meet at the horizon line
I don't know if we'll make it
But at least we can say we tried
So don't surrender
Cause time is on our side
 
Within the mist
I still see
The colored pines
And evergreens
It's midnight's haze
That makes me clean
But high noon's sun
Is when I dream  

And I'll run forever
If peace is what I'll find
We can go together
Our souls will meet at the horizon line  

I don't know if we'll make it
But at least we can say we tried
So don't surrender
Cause time is on our side  

And the light shines down upon your face
In the Dawn I feel this warm embrace  

And I'll run forever
If peace is what I'll find
We can go together
Our souls will meet at the horizon line
I don't know if we'll make it
But at least we can say we tried
So don't surrender
Cause time is on our side

I don't know if we'll make it
But at least we can say we tried
So don't surrender
Cause time is on our side

Said So (Ft. Werdplay)

If you wanted me sooner than you shoulda said so
I used to want you but now I’m trying to let go
I tried so hard but now I’m letting you know

Werdplay:
Hey lil miss sexual,
I’d like to let you know
Even if you tried to cut off my hands I couldn’t let you go

You so essential to me I love just how that oil flow
You just so special I admire you from head to toe

But if u wanna leave, You ain’t gotta stay around me you could peace any minute 
Studying your actions, every piece of your physics
Cause your legs always do the peace sign when I’m in it

Shawty come n baseball slide then get dismissed
This trick could never be found with magicians
Depends, you be playing mind games too
But if u wasting time then u might as well leave boo

If you wanted me sooner than you shoulda said so
I used to want you but now I’m tryna let go
I tried so hard but now I’m letting you know

I wanted you but you didn’t know that
I gave you love but you didn’t throw back
I gave you time for committing your love crimes
But now the bright lights are turning black, yeah

It’s a lost cause
Now that you’ve turned around
And everyone’s waiting to know
How this’ll turn out, but
Now that my heart is broken
You want some of the pieces

If you wanted me sooner than you shoulda said so
I used to want you but now I’m tryna let go
I tried so hard but now I’m letting you know
