1. About Time

Welcome To The DOPE Game
You know what I think,
I think it’s about time

Chorus
It’s about time
Welcome to the dope game
Don’t oppress the energy
Cuz’ in the end it’s all the same
It’s about time that my minds on my money
And my money’s on my mind it’s time to get it,
Yea it’s go time
It’s about time
Welcome to the dope game
Don’t oppress the energy
In the end it’s all the same
It’s about time that my minds on my money
And my money’s on my mind it’s time to get it,
Yea it’s go time

Verse 1
It’s about time
Got my mind on my money and my money on my mind
Nevermind
Yesterday I’m over wasting my time
On my grind like every day
Lookin forward to the day my dreams come true from a pay check
It makes sense
Lyrically and literal
I’m in the greatest mind of a spiritual
I put my heart and soul inside a musical
Like an epidemic
Gonna hit
Universal all around the world
And I put it on his name I’m never breakin’ the code, ah

Chorus
It’s about time
Welcome to the dope game
Don’t oppress the energy
Cuz’ in the end it’s all the same
It’s about time that my minds on my money
And my money’s on my mind it’s time to get it,
Yea it’s go time
It’s about time
Welcome to the dope game
Don’t oppress the energy
In the end it’s all the same
It’s about time that my minds on my money
And my money’s on my mind it’s time to get it,
Yea it’s go time

Verse 2
Every night I pray hard
I got it tattoed on my knuckles
But it’s like everywhere I go the people look then chuckle
Now here I go
Gonna make me blow before my third show
Why thank you hater
Imma thank you now cuz’ I don’t want you later
Smoke you up
Then separate you better than a percolator
It’s about time you get the name
It’s time to circulate it
Joseph AM
Better in the PM
Let me take you to my spot
Lets enjoy the weekend

Chorus
It’s about time
Welcome to the dope game
Don’t oppress the energy
Cuz’ in the end it’s all the same
It’s about time that my minds on my money
And my money’s on my mind it’s time to get it,
Yea it’s go time
It’s about time
Welcome to the dope game
Don’t oppress the energy
In the end it’s all the same
It’s about time that my minds on my money
And my money’s on my mind it’s time to get it,
Yea it’s go time

2. L.C.A

Intro
That’s right! (HA)
Keep Dreaming (UH HUH)
I said I’m goin in

Chorus
Lights camera action
Be the main attraction
If life is a movie
Imma be the only star in it, yea
Are you in your world? x2

Verse 1
Here I go, Here I go
Here I go I’m goin in
Lights camera action and I’m here to help you understand
Life is a movie up and down just like a roller coast
Fatal attractions,
Fixing damages am I Glenn Close
I’m getting close
Getting closer to my dreams with every syllable I spit
Writing everywhere I go hopin this one is gonna hit
Even if it don’t
I won’t take it as a joke
I see it motivation inspiration, people laughin at me
Why man, ah
They don’t understand (UH HUH)
I left all the things that distracted me from my fathers plan
The same party same bars the fake girls the fake friends (UH HUH)
If you want to stand out,
Just stand up, yell out truck the trend
Cuz trends only fade,
Imma do it my way (That’s right)
What most make in a year I wanna make in a day
It’s hard to call it work when I can do this ish all day
Probably why I never sleep
I found a reason to stay awake

Chorus
Lights camera action
Be the main attraction
If life is a movie
Imma be the only star in it, yea
Are you in your world? x2
No matter what they say
Imam do it my way
Whole world is a stage
I aint tryna be another extra
Are you in your world? x2

Verse 2
In any situation
Dubious from contemplation
Gather all my thoughts together
Figure out this situation
Man I’m tradin nights out for nights in
So my weekends never end
I wake up then I roll up
Make a hit then start over
Cuz day and night
What I’m like
Get my cheese then I shed it light
Then I say my grace
Let him know I’m good
Then I look ahead and its lookin good
Got my microphones on
Headphones on
Levels up
Paparazzi gone
What I picture as I sit here writing lyrics to this song
I think how many people will miss me when I’m gone
Then I think how many celebrities are singin the same song
You got em Drake
All real and I never flake
Get a man a deal for heavens sake
The choice is made there’s nothing left to contemplate
stay awake
Lights camera action
Gotta be the main attraction
30 min to sun down
Gotta keep them cameras rollin
My life, My world
About time that I play the roll
supercalifragilistic and you know I’m expiali-DOPE

Chorus
Lights camera action
Be the main attraction
If life is a movie
Imma be the only star in it, yea
Are you in your world? x2
No matter what they say
Imam do it my way
Whole world is a stage
I aint tryna be another extra
Are you in your world? x2

Outro
Are you in your world?
Are you in your world?
Are you in your world?

Track Name: Misguided
3. Misguided

Intro
Keep Dreaming
There’s too many misguided
Let’s stand up, Yea

Verse 1
The American dream isn’t always what it seems
Trained workers and slaves all for the opportunity
Lookin up to celebs
We treat em like some aliens
“oh look they shop and clean just like the rest of us” (wow)
Finding ways to stand out
I’m living on the edge
Chlostrophobic I can imagine when I’m living like them
Movie Wall-E shows the future of Americans
Nobody wants to get up and reach
They want it handed to them
Reading magazines because a hoe is on the cover
Seeing little girls wearing shorts shorter than their mothers
Everyone confused confusing me
They don’t know common sense
Forgetting higher ups are telling stars how to dress
Good monkey sees bad monkey do
Negative images on the news so negative you do
Elementary we’ve been taught how to work and think
History’s a mystery

Chorus
(Sample from Lincoln Park’s “Breaking The Habit”)
So I’m breaking the habit x 3
(Go Go Go Go Go Go Go Go!)
Tonight

Verse 2
Now I know who’s writing it
Everybody looks up to someone bigger than them
Everybody looks up to someone bigger than them
Why aren’t we promoting more good over drinks and fashion
Living vicariously
Through little girls used as sex symbols see
Once you’ve seen enough of something
You get used to it, it’s normal
Why these little kids are having little kids, abnormal
Blows my freakin mind like someone who really did it
Why don’t we start to question why things are the way they are
Even why they put perverted drawings on a kids wall
Monsters Inc.
Didn’t notice it you see
Either way it’s jacked up the message that they’re sending all out kin
Breakinng all the habits so the future shows a better end
When you hear an 8 yr old cussin up a storm
See why they’re misguided
Think it’s time to bring em home
Shouldn’t have been alone
I wanna see our youth grown

Chorus
(Sample from Lincoln Park’s “Breaking The Habit”)
So I’m breaking the habit x 3
(Go Go Go Go Go Go Go Go!)
Tonight

Outro
Sigh
Man…Keep Dreaming
Track Name: Fallin'
4. Fallin’

Intro
(Starts off with sample used from John Mayer’s “Free Fallin’”)

Verse 1
And I’m
Free fallin, callin, higher names
Wishin I was ballin I’m still thankful no blame
And with that mindset
It’s no wonder that I hardly get upset
Even free fallin
I feel like I’m risin
Wanna break free from the shackles I’m caught in
This isn’t what I planned or ever thought I could be
That’s the beauty of it cu we learn as we live see
Didn’t know my way until about 18
Which is kind of ironic to say
I was doin all the wrong things doin my best
It’s way, too, easy to get caught up living like the rest
But now I see the message was writtin in blessings
Angels from heaven
Lucky number 7
I captured this moment like there were no cameras
Showin telling nobody but me
And now I’m

Chorus
And I’m free
Free fallin, fallin x 2
(sample from John Mayer’s “Free Fallin’”)

Verse 2
I keep it inside like a virgin, woah
I let it go as I’m fallin
Like I’m in love for the first time and in this moment I’m
Finally feelin like
I stayed up all night cryin myself to sleep
Crazy to me
Want something this bad
More important than a want
Its something that I need bad
I’ll be living my dream even when I’m 60
Yea
See this music’ begun its own path to saving me
Only one mission, set my family free
Always been a free spirit do what I want
And if it doesn’t feel good than why do it all
If it’s such a small world than I’ll capture it all
Got the world in my hands, wanna share it with y’all
Been a real damn shame to miss a beautiful thing
Feels much better when you’re

Chorus
And I’m free
Free fallin, fallin x 2
(sample from John Mayer’s “Free Fallin’”)
Bridge
Don’t worry about what other people think,
Too afraid to swim, so in the end they sink
And I’m free
I’m..

Chorus
And I’m free
Free fallin, fallin x 2
(sample from John Mayer’s “Free Fallin’”)
Track Name: Feel
5. Feel

Intro
Feel

How you make me feel
Uh Huh

Verse 1
Pour up, Why
Cuz this the place to be
Slow down, uh
Too many sites to see
I’m in the land of the free because of the brave
So why can’t I learn to behave
I’m sippin the bottle like there aint tomorrow
I’m livin it up, really don’t give a truck
This is to all of the people the teachers that told me I need to go to college
Not that I’m sayin it won’t be a ride but I need a car with better mileage
Rear em
Some say I should quit
But most say I’m a hit
So don’t tell me sh, if you haven’t been through, sh, alright

Chorus
(sample for the chorus used from Aly & Aj’s “Chemicals React”)
You make me feel, out of my element
Like I’m walking on broken glass
Like my world’s spinnin in slow motion and you’re moving too fast…
You make me feel

Like it’s time to change
Foot off the break
I’m catching up I’m switching lanes
from here on out I won’t be the same
You make me feel

Like I’m back home I’m home grown
I’ll make it even if you’re not around
It’s thanks to you I found my way now

Verse 2
This to all you hatin people seeing writin in the cut right now
You say I change
I call that getting paid
Keep downin the drink while I get up right now
Been feeling lazy took a couple days off
That’s a couple days too much
feeling like a new song
But getting up is kinda rough
Like how I beat it up right in the morn
I’m feelin like I can’t give up
I’ve come way too far along
To let no matter what I figure out something I condone
I put my heart in everything and yea I know I still can’t sing
Lost is what most people think because we’re taught what not to think
So while I’m here I’ll figure out like how you spread across the bed
After a long a useless night out
What’s important we’re awake right now
Lets celebrate as we bake up right now
It’s a new day to come back alive
So in this moment I’m feeling like
Been crushed way too many times
It’s time to change, foot off the break
Gotta catch up before it’s way too late
Can’t let the prom date get away
Gotta make sure that I keep promise
Cuz no matter how you made me feel I’m gonna be this way ok


Chorus
(sample for the chorus used from Aly & Aj’s “Chemicals React”)
You make me feel, out of my element
Like I’m walking on broken glass
Like my world’s spinnin in slow motion and you’re moving too fast…
You make me feel

Like it’s time to change
Foot off the break
I’m catching up I’m switching lanes
from here on out I won’t be the same
You make me feel

Like I’m back home I’m home grown
I’ll make it even if you’re not around
It’s thanks to you I found my way now

Bridge
You make me feel, oh (repeat)

Verse 3
It’s bliss
If I can learn it
I retain it
I contain it
I maintain it
Never let go from the get go
Look at me now makin strangers proud
And now I bet all yall are shocked
And now all yall are blocked
And I’m stickin to myself whether you like it or not


Chorus
(sample for the chorus used from Aly & Aj’s “Chemicals React”)
You make me feel, out of my element
Like I’m walking on broken glass
Like my world’s spinnin in slow motion and you’re moving too fast…
You make me feel

Like it’s time to change
Foot off the break
I’m catching up I’m switching lanes
from here on out I won’t be the same
You make me feel

Like I’m back home I’m home grown
I’ll make it even if you’re not around
It’s thanks to you I found my way now
Track Name: The Objective feat. Ad-Uhm
6. The Objective featuring Ad-Uhm

Intro
Whats my objective?…that’s simple
Look

Verse 1
Another new day to attract the good life
Aint not good in doing no good
I do life I live right
I do my my best I’m up all night I’m sittin here I think
A thinker with a dream that I’m attracting my way
Write it down and read it loud with each and every day
You don’t need to know how
But you should be specific
When you get it in your head its time you finally take action
Just do it like nike only it won’t cost 150, yup
Need to change the paradigms
Pennies nickels quarters gained by trading your time
Already in the third quarter
A reason for everything why I’m sittin here and asking for it
Aint the type to beg I’ll turn the other cheek and walk away
Pray someone will find me so I know they’ll come and find me
I stick to my purpose hense why these lyrics are written
I dare you try this is my opportunity
Never forget what the objective is, I’m always true to his, huh

Chorus
The Objective
What I’m gonna be
I hope you pray for me
Before it all goes down
I don’t mean that in a bad way
I’m just tryna say
That I can’t stop now x 2

Verse 2
I’m sick of the same faces at the same places wasted
Feeling like I’m waist deep in all of this time
At the same block same bar same flirts same dimes
Is it really a crime to wanna have a good time?
Even your closest friends will try to ruin you at your prime
Optimus rhymes never truant from my being
Gotta get it my time feeling higher than kings
Like the common cold no one suspects a thing
Better than a phoenix outta Arizona, blessings
They said that I should take the bar the biggest lie in lawyers
Said that dreams are only dreams they wouldn’t take me higher
That’s a lie
Look how far I come by keeping beating hearts a live
Cross my heart I will rise gotta keep the dream alive
Hard work and dedication workin as I’m workin
No time for free time
Settled in now with perfection as I rhyme and put my thoughts on screen better written

Chorus
The Objective
What I’m gonna be
I hope you pray for me
Before it all goes down
I don’t mean that in a bad way
I’m just tryna say
That I can’t stop now x 2

Verse 3 (Ad-Uhm)
Listen
If you want to start makin advances
Well then you must start taking some chances
One life to live
No time to waste
I wanna get this money you can see it in my face
You can see it in my eyes
That I’m not the type of guy to just sit around and try
I only got a minute
It’s not a lot of time but eternity is in it

Chorus
The Objective
What I’m gonna be
I hope you pray for me
Before it all goes down
I don’t mean that in a bad way
I’m just tryna say
That I can’t stop now x 2

That I can’t stop now (repeat)

Hold your breath and plug your nose

Everyone that knows me knows fantastic it's tragic
The loss of words of unreal magic, I

imma pass it to the homies cuz I always spread the love
It's summer time this summers mine
I'm lookin up I'm feeling fine
I do what I say
And I speak how I pray
Every night I'm pushin through the struggle
Take it away
With another hit of AK
4 to 7 usually I wanna get it in
Mary Jane now we're in heaven
I ain't got an infinite supply of ideas
I'm so ready for this summer ain't not way it's gonna be a bummer
I aint gotta ask for riches
Waitin for me in the summer 
Sandy beaches, what a scene
And the sunset looks just like my weed
Tangerine, yellow green red 
Even had the purple now relax with me

Chorus
Take me away
Yea I know it's gonna be a good summer
Take me away
take me away
I said take me away
Yea I know it's gonna be a good summer
Take me away
Take me away

Bridge
Let me see you blow this circle
Talking bout lets blow this circle
Got a lotta friends

Bring me to the majors and I swear they'll thank us man
Yea we'll celebrate 
Drink and smoke out of an elephant
Bring a couple friends along
Cuz when we kick it in the summer world will know this song
Learn the hook it won't take long
Packin her in mini bongs
All in black I'm ready to go
Letting go of gettin down cuz no one came to my show, ah

Verse 3
Summer time this summers mine
Have nothin but good feelings looking clean and friendly ma
Like I created the scene
Stella Artois when I walk in
Everybodys looking my way
Forget the panama jacks
Santa Monica is waiting
Promised ill be comin back
Hit the river on the platt
Kick your feet up and relax
We still got all day
The only way to celebrate 

Chorus
Take me away
Yea I know it's gonna be a good summer
Take me away
take me away
I said take me away
Yea I know it's gonna be a good summer
Take me away

Track Name: Burn
8. Burn

Intro
Twist it up twist it up
Mix it up and turn it up
Listen what im sayin, this the place to be
Got the bass and the treble, like it loud in my ear piece 
Now I'm ready now I'm steady
Listen up cuz I'm about to burn it up

Chorus
I'm about to burn it up
Burn it up (repeat)

Verse 1
I'm about to burn it up, I'm talkin about the beat
They say get out the kitchen you can't handle the heat
Feelin like the only one who's got his head in this deep
Just wait until you hear what I got cooked up this week
I guarantee its strong enough to leave em weak at knees
Have them all stuttering like they're all Japanese
Got em jumpin higher like they're all on trampolines
Feelin higher than the whole population in the Philippines I burn it up

Chorus
I'm about to burn it up
Burn it up (repeat)

Verse 2
Shake it shake it
Gotta bake it bake have her repeatin first names like I'm Ricky bobby
Only got one name and that's how they know me
I ain't need a fake name like I got something to hide
Imma always be me even when the owl rises
And I swear that imma kill it
What the fuck is up with it
I worship my health and I worship his help
I bieve whatever comes your way the way you need to take up look
Listen to these artists just make sure you never follow em
The message is wrong 
They just hide it under wealth and women
What everybody needs 
fix the economy
Don't ask with a please 
The only way you'll ever get me down to my knees 
Are the days before you see me right before the autopsy
11:35 am I'm tipsy
A lot more left for me
I'm branchin out like trees cuz I burn it up

Chorus 
I'm about to burn it up
Burn it up (repeat)

Bridge
Burn burn burn burn

Verse 3 
There's a pun intended
When I say ill burn it
But to mean the same thing is when I say ill destroy it
Ill burn it with a passion and enjoy it
Sick of everything I hear and see subliminally 
It's no wonder why most people are controlled so easily
Because you make dreams seem all fantasy
And everybody wants to be apart of fantasies
Hard to tell what's real or fake through all the fuckin money, yea
You think that holograms are only seen in movies
You don't think the planes in 9/11 seemed funny
No offense I don't mean funny like a comedy
My mind is open with a sick trap in case they try to rob me
Prepared for anything
Even fake explosions
Hollywood is everywhere
I better know it well then
Ill be damned of what I say puts me in jail cuz ill burn it up

Chorus
I'm about to burn it up
Burn it up (repeat)
Yea I'm about to burn it up 
Track Name: Weaknesses and Strengths
9. Weaknesses and Strengths

Verse 1
My weaknesses and strengths simply go hand in hand
Through my weaknesses I learn how to be a better man
With my strengths already strong
I move up quicker than a pawn
Taking each experience as a learning lesson
The biggest blessing always came as something least expected like love
Or when you take a good look in the mirror
By taking opportunities the message now more clear
Inspire everyone you come across
The tune in their ear
Never showin weakness standin in from today my biggest fear I finally leap
Never know in exactly how deep
But
These the risks I take
Cuz I gave it all to fate
Dreams that I'm finally livin
And I still have weaknesses an strengths 
A weakness I'm so forgiving 
A strength it's hard to get through to me
All I have in this world are my balls and my word
I don't break em for nobody
Look who's finally a somebody
Joseph A.M.
Tell your lovers and friends
Getting back to the point
Like I'm dexter
Trying to impress my managers
The anger shows without ma
Ha
I control my mood sir
I just make you think that you're the fuckin boss

Chorus
Tell me what you see is what you get
And I know you won't ever forget
Crazy bustin my ass for another piece of paper
I can tape together and still trade for somethin better
x2

Verse 2
Then I just laugh it off later
Call me a team player 
I just play too hard
Sometimes that was my downfall
You don't fail until you quit
Like most do right in front of it
Gotta keep pushin on and on and on and on
I won't stop writin till the break of dawn da dawn
When it comes to dedication 
Passions how you keep the love growin
I will always stay with music
Even if I get 100 no mans
Know my true potential
Think you'll fall in love forever
Cuz you know it's something real
I put my hear and soul in music
All He ever had planned for me
Took awhile but it's here
Never seen the world more clear
Used to want a perfect world but then what would we ever learn
In a perfect world I know everything 
Have everything
Nothing new and nothin risky
Rather take the risk and have all of the big wigs diss me ah

Chorus
Tell me what you see is what you get
And I know you won't ever forget
Crazy bustin my ass for another piece of paper
I can tape together and still trade for somethin better
x2

Verse 3
Man I don't give a truck
I stay chill like villains right before they make a killin and ill sneak up
Every time like a dark elf in skyrim
Always surprising them
Listenin to all but never followin
I'd rather be a leader than do what you say
No questions asked
And you shall receive
Has always been who I am and now came to be
What everybody's biggest strength is that we all have the same dreams

Chorus
Tell me what you see is what you get
And I know you won't ever forget
Crazy bustin my ass for another piece of paper
I can tape together and still trade for somethin better
x4
Track Name: Visions
10. Visions

Verse 1
Visions of a man crying in his hands
Visions of man wishin for a better end
Visions of a man tryin to put a stop to end
Cuz the feeling of accomplishment is overpowering 
Need to lead your own trail instead of always followin
Following the same path leads to trailing 
Building a new empire in place of what's fallin
Hard for them to understand I finally found my callin
On a power trip
Ain't on powder trips
On your coward shit
I'm on hyroglyphs
Ill be historic
Ain't no hidin it
And I wasn't put here just to wait on god to save me from it
I think that I'm put here not to understand but change what's goin on
Hear them all complaining but they're still so comfortable at home
There's so many distractions
I won't let em get in the way
Full of positive reactions 
I'm attractin good my way
My minds my weapon of choice they can take away arms
They won't take away my voice
In god we trust but in slave they trust
Choosing fast food over good food
Dumbin us up
Everything's a cover up
Even the clouds above us
Don't even sit there and tell me grids in skies are normal
I'm makin sure I'm off the radar
Cuz they hate what I know
Most people wouldn't think twice 
Cuz they see it on the news
What does it say about us
Need to think for you
Feelin sorry all our babies
Will always be in their view
We can show em light instead of passin it by
Computer chips in infants already on the rise
I see the truth in their lies
Pointless troops loosing lives
And I thank god everyday my brothers still alive

Bridge
And ill take you anywhere
Glad we finally had this time to speak
x2
Reach

Verse 2
Beginning or the end we're in the days of our lives
Livin in my own world the real worlds full of lies
Think you ever had a choice in who becomes the president
Already had it planned there's no more time left to be wasting it
What did you ever think would be expected of me
It's because you doubted me I have some places to be
Gonna take my riches with me like another dirty mummy
Lookin forward to a rapture 
Cuz I know they'll never capture me
Before the end comes even faster I will rescue thee
Anybody listening you found the answer key
Ill teach you how to make a path the only way you've yet to see 
Quit walkin in the same path
Like a fathers prodigy
Your dreams were bigger at some point so why'd you cover it like loins
Show the world and tell the world the visions that you now seek
Track Name: Keep It Steppin' feat. Turner Jackson
11. Keep It Steppin featuring Turner Jackson

Intro (Turner Jackson)
Ey babay 
I don't care what you say
Cuz I'm fly as fuck and you know it
Don't hate on me 
Just throw it I'm flowin

Verse 1 (Turner Jackson)
These stresses and headaches
make my head shake
in a very disapproving nature
and I'm steadily on a mission to make things better later
but right now a n***a got nothin
Not enough to pay attention
so who's gonna listen to my statements when they focused on my status
my current position that I'm put ins got me pissed like a bladder.
In front of my pants wet where my appearance matters
It appears theres a disaster cause I
can't get it together man im living in broken space
use to be Pangea
consequences of the continents
the boys got you moving I'm a regular Magellan.
Go discover some new shit.
Uncover what the truth is
you take your mask off and your man look like Judas.
The killer of the king like James earl ray
cuz they've been desperate for my throne sittin like all day
but my word is loyal life line in the phase

Chorus
Tomorrow is a blessing
Today is a present
Yesterday's forgotten so I'm gonna keep it Steppin, alright, alright
(Turner Jackson)
Tomorrow is a blessing
Today is a present
Yesterday's full of lessons so I gotta keep Steppin alright, alright

Verse 2 (A.M.)
I stay true for the true love of hip hop the drive in me is so strong I'm never coming to a stop 
something more important than a dream come true 
people need to realize nothing is more important than you 
how's it going to happen that day when I'm finally signing 
all my dreams finally unraveling like I'm pulling on the loose thread. 
Figuratively 
figure this most rappers nowadays are spitting out irrelevance 
reality in front of it 
I see that mine is definite permanetly true as you unique in it 
so beautiful don't need to worry about botique'n it.
Just feel the vibe from every tribe
Joseph A.M. Has arrived
A new view for everybody blinded by the eye
Open up open up and look past the obvious 
Mischievous behavior covered up with lights and glitter
Go figure
I ain't talkin maniquin, keep your mind focused lookin at the bigger picture

Chorus
(Turner Jackson)
Tomorrow is a blessing
Today is a present
Yesterday's full of lessons so I gotta keep Steppin alright, alright
(A.M.) Tomorrow is a blessing
Today is a present
Yesterday's forgotten so I'm gonna keep it Steppin, alright, alright
Track Name: Dream Alive
12. Dream Alive

Intro
62 to 125
125 to a 250
Turn that into a half a mil,
Ain't nothin nobody can do with me
Heh, got em Jay

Verse 1
I don't ever mean to spit some moral caffeine 
I don't ever mean to rhyme a psychiatric codeine 
I'm here to open up your mind 
state all the facts 
state all the truth through my raps what can be better than that 
I'm looking ahead and theyre looking right back. 
Crazy when you think about the time how quick things change 
right before your eyes in no time 
So in these rhymes express my life through the song use my rights 
freedom of speech 
will power on the streets instead of selling on those streets. 
I'm trying to sell my life story 
its hitting me.

Chorus
Said that dreams are only dreams they wouldn't take me higher 
that's a lie cuz every night the dream shows like a flyer 
look how far I come by keeping beating hearts alive 
cross my heart and hope to rise 
I gotta keep the dream alive

Verse 2
I won't get into much its a tragedy 
the feeling when your missing someone gone you try to catch some Z's 
at 3 a.m. Going crazy staying up all night while thinking 
what went wrong 
the second oldest of a fam of 7 strong it would have been 8 
I know she's watching from heaven 
it's no coincidence I always check the time 11:11. 
So make a wish before I go 
cuz once I'm there I'm all alone 
at least that's what I imagine, yo.

Chorus
Said that dreams are only dreams they wouldn't take me higher 
that's a lie cuz every night the dream shows like a flyer 
look how far I come by keeping beating hearts alive 
cross my heart and hope to rise 
I gotta keep the dream alive
