Track Name: Better Miracle
Better Miracle


Today
My window
The sun
Came through

Today was a day I thought I'd look to
My window felt the pain that I knew
The sun heard about it when he came to
Came through, good lookin' out I needed you

Today was a day that didn't need rain
My window looked to me to make a change
The sun, risin' to the occasion
Came through, good lookin' out I needed you

I know within my self I'm gonna be o.k.
Remember back then I've come a long way
The dream may never ever be the same but
Came true, still here with you and that'll do

I know the road I'm on is not easy way
Remember that I will define the path I take
The dream, yeah I'm a dreamer what can I say
Came true, still here with you and that'll do

I feel, it's in my fingers
I know it's in my soul now
Don't need, I don't need a miracle
Just want to get a little better x2

I'm not asking for a miracle
Just want to get a little bit better x2

My life, so full of regret for lost time
Memories seem to forget never remind
The hope, the hope ain't enough but it's alive
And love, yeah love is the one to get me by

My life, it's never to late to get it right
Memories slip in my mind throughout the night
The hope, helps me cope with my life
And love, yeah love is the one to get me by

Today, today is here for me to redefine
Yesterday, stay in past I let it die
In time, I'll be doin' fine gettin' by
Cause now's the only moment mattering in life

Today, live for today only today
Yesterday is never the same, sever the pain
In time, love and learn and burn into the night
Cause now's the only moment mattering in life

I feel, it's in my fingers
I know it's in my soul now
Don't need, I don't need a miracle
Just want to get a little better x2

I'm not asking for a miracle
Just want to get a little bit better x2

Track Name: Lap Dog
Lap Dog



See I used to be, used to be
righteous and of use to people like this
like us, we stuck and I guess something interrupted
What the fuck's been conducted?
See it's only me being what I been all of my life
Of mice and men now the mic and pen been abducted,
Couldn't duck it, as luck would have it
I'm an old Boo Radley and I won't do badly when I move through the valley of the land where they put love in hands of the man who suffers


I ain't a leader
I'll follow wherever you go
I'm just a lap dog
Pat me on the head before you go...

Tell me that I'm good enough...
For another day, for another week, for another year
Cause it do appear, that I'm livin' like a slave in a permanent fear
And my 'Time's Up', Like O.C. say
Some real people but they mostly fake
Most these days in my low key ways
I'm an old lap dog slowly passin' away
I won't see fame, no I didn't seek that
In a dirty lame suit and an old cheap hat
With a weak rap, getting beat real bad
but could you stick around maybe pat me on the back?

I ain't a leader
I'll follow wherever you go
I'm just a lap dog
Pat me on the head before you go...


I gave you all my dreams, I gave you all my love, my pain, my soul, my goals, my name
And then you turned around and gave it all away
I'm an old lap dog in the moon Haooh
Singing you a song howlin' way outta tune
Show love when you see me come through
I ain't gonna bite Haooh Haooh
Sinner man, looking for a bit of god
In a band, or maybe in a synagogue
Or in a cinema shared with the wanderers
Please clasp hands, say a prayer for the underdog


I ain't a leader
I'll follow wherever you go
I'm just a lap dog
Pat me on the head before you go...

Track Name: High In Fidelity
High In Fidelity Ft The Chaperones



Take me away to the place I wanna be
Where I'm gone in the breeze and I'm feelin 17
C'mon, c'mon

Hey take me to the place I wanna stay
Where I'm King for a day and everything is cocaine
C'mon, c'mon


I wanna get high
C'mon, c'mon
You make me feel high
C'mon, c'mon

Get a little buzz when I get that love but I don't do drugs no mo no mo
Feel it in the mind, live it up alright and that's the way it go it go
Listen lyricists the sentences is sucka free
I got the higher learning bitch ya can't fuck with me

Take me away to the place I wanna be
Where my favourite memory got me feeling 17
(imagine me, leaving the scene
Green lamborgeen and my sneakers are clean)
Play me a beat, that'll take me away
Like my favourite DJ, dropped the needle in my vein
C'mon C'mon
(Hey DJ, play it again
I'm high on the music, take me away)

I wanna get high
C'mon, c'mon
You make me feel high
C'mon, c'mon


King for a day, can I get an ole? as I make my way down to Mexico
Ole, to the panama bay let the animals play, say who's the next to dose?
Can't do minimum when I'm in the middle of em don't do moderation
Sweet like cinnamon and if I need a hit again soldier guard your station
Talk to the chief, but the boss is me, ain't got the money, but the cost is free
Rock to the beat, never stop your feet, if talk is cheap, what you talking to me for?
We low below the seafloor, where you never been before, we got a dream to show…


I wanna get high
C'mon, c'mon
You make me feel high
C'mon, c'mon
Track Name: Love You Too Much
LOVE YOU TOO MUCH

You do it me,
bringing out the worst do i to to myself I know it hurts
We grew up quick, a couple lunatics fooling with a love we never knew would stick
Who would think you and me, moving overseas, removed from the scene, we grew our family, and and now tearing at the seam, I'm staring at the ceiling wondering if it's a dream
Ya showing soon, ya mom will be over the moon, your pop over with brew, an opportune time to tell them what, we gonna do when, another comes baby comes, how do we pretend?
That we're even friends, when we're broke again, I guess we break before we bend, no this cannot end,
Save me from my self, you know me well enough to know, I'll never give it up, never let ya go…

I think I love you too much
I think I love you too much
I think I love you too much
I think I love you too much


The roller coasters broken without you


You got power in ya, a little foul in ya too
A lotta fire, a lot of fight that's true
Born cool, colder than a witches tit
Boss bitch still down with submissive shit
Hissy fit princess, don't exist with this
Lips that will lift infinite, kisses fix the kid
This explicitness IS what you think it is
Wishful of simpleness, crib full of little kids...
And they look like you, skin colour of their mother dipped like fondue
In chocolate, optimistic view, got me thinking Motown as I sing this tune like
"People say I'm the life the party cause I tell a joke or two" it ain't true
Cause we all know when you step in a room, that the the life of the party is you, yeah we do

I think I love you too much
I think I love you too much
I think I love you too much
I think I love you too much

My midnight bliss
I will survive with a love like this
I know how the song goes
Nananananaanana x2

I think I love you too much
I think I love you too much
I think I love you too much
I think I love you too much

Track Name: The Game Ft. Ryan Guldemond
The Game Ft Ryan Guldemond

My little star got some problems, they're bright enough to see
You said the light in your life now is dark because of me


Blamin' me ya didn't win again
Time is low, for you to shoot to fame
Did you think I would keep on playin'?


I'm out of the game
You, you're just doing the same


Rules don't change and it still the same
But I can't keep playing so I'm out of the game

You're sense of entitlement in my life was pretty senseless
How could I get so comfortable with this bullshit and never end it?

Blamin' me ya didn't win again
Time is low, for you to shoot to fame
Did you think I would keep on playin'?
No, no, no

I'm out of the game
You, you're just doing the same

If love is a game then it's Grand Theft or Call Of Duty
Love is a song then go ahead and auto tune me
If love a game? lemme declare you winner
Your love's a meal? then baby I'll be late for dinner
Everything I ever loved when I grew up well it blew up
If you need the proof then hit the street and scoop it up
Ain't rollin' over, holdin' on to my controller
Now you know ya lost it player wake up cause the game is over

I'm out of the game
You, you're just doing the same

Rules don't change and its still the same
But I can't keep playing so I'm out of the game.

Track Name: The Reason Why
The Reason Why


I bet my money on my only dream
But it broke my self esteem
And I don't know why

Ain't no control over the loneliness
Still I put my soul in it
And I don't know why
Everything I said I'd never do
Well I did it anyway
But I don't know why
Sickened by what I turned into
So I threw it all away
I'm a tell you why

In my life, in my life
I've been hurt, and burned burned inside
But in time yes over time
That has turned into the thing that gets me by
That's the reason why

I did some crime and took my punishment
I had my fun with it
I don't know why
I wasted time being something I wasn't
It just wasn't me
And I don't know why
Took so long to find myself again
And I threw my wealth away
But I don't know why
Lived my life and though I've made mistakes
I'd do it all again
And I'll tell you why…

In my life, in my life
I've been hurt, and burned burned inside
But in time yes over time
That has turned into the thing that gets me by
That's the reason why

Lines in the road are the lines that I write with
travelled in time by the minds of the righteous
Young man socialist, old man republican
Youth wanna grow and the old be young again
On the other end always seem brighter than
Time will trick you, quicker than a slight of hand
Clock's a round guillotine chopping time
Til you made your ten cents then it stops on a dime
The inner eye minimized over time
Symbolized by the light identified by the blind
No regrets I'm a keep mine
Mistakes made the man that I am that's the reason why

In my life, in my life
I've been hurt, and burned burned inside
But in time yes over time
That has turned into the thing that gets me by
That's the reason why

Track Name: Wake Up Ft. D-Sisive
Wake Up ft D-Sisive

When I woke up today, when I woke up today, when I woke up today, when I woke up today
Give myself another chance, give myself another chance, give myself another chance, give myself another chance


(D-Sisive)
Nowadays I sleep with the lights on, Left Eye Lopez open
Eye patch over my right one, staring at the light bulb
Scared of every outside noise til the dark shadows on my white walls
Intravenous in my right arm, but I ain't tryin' to dirt nap like Michael
Conrad Murray in a hurry but my life's too blurry
So I worry til I hand shake the right palm
But the right palm might mean the right palm's
Gripping a butter knife aiming for your spine chord
So I say beware of who's behind yours
And you say what's the point of living life for
If you're spending every second, second guessing everybody
You're better off hiding behind doors
But I'm curious to know what's behind yours
Just promise me you won't turn the lights off, off


When I woke up today, when I woke up today, when I woke up today, when I woke up today
Give myself another chance, give myself another chance, give myself another chance, give myself another chance

See I thought about not not getting up today
Even if I do, odds will be the same
Audible out of the probable shame
Lookin' for an answer out the bottle again
Questions remain, added blame to the pain
And the name stays the same, ain't a damn thing money
Change, plenty of it not a damn thing sunny
As I sing for the city where the rain drops on me
Not a one man army
Gotta family that's demanding, getting sick of understanding what I do and that's alarming
Fuck everyone you with, ain't I charming?
But you're beautiful baby, you're beautiful
Therapeutic do I til I die until the music's throughgh
And when the music's over?
I'm a wake up and play it again the same soldier
Track Name: Bus Pass Ca$h
BUS PASS CA$H Ft Moka Only and Lil Bit

I did for the lovin' and some bus pass cash,
My father, and my mother said it just can't last
But Baby it's a struggle can I get past that?
Maybe I will, maybe I will


(kyprios)
Maybe I will, proceed with bus pass ca$h, and the back pack raps with the snap back hats and that Fat raps is back, where the ladies at? Where the fellas jealous,
Aw yeeyah I'm the son of a catfish baptist minister, tap dance into ya
Laugh when I crash into cash as I finish up
Voice for the radio face for the cinema
Bit of a ego
Me and Moke close like Woodstock and Snoopy the Beagle, where did he go?
I'm in it for the love man I never made a c-note
Eating seaweed with the Kiwi's in New Zealie speaking Maori, now we feel the good vibrations, the good vibrations? so many females, so much inspiration


I did for the lovin' and some bus pass cash,
My father, and my mother said it just can't last
But baby it's a struggle can I get past that?
Maybe I will, maybe I will


(Moka)
Holla for the hoopla, and the oom pa pa
With a song and a dance like an oompa loompa
Get the people sayin' "ooh my my"
Like the days gone by I'm a Super Trooper (golden)
We gotta do it again, we in a time when the people are holding in
We're not folded in, Moke is Swole again
And Kyprios on the road with friends and that's love
Not a social media buzz, in fact that's crack and it's beating us up
Gotta stand apart, I'm here to command your heart
Live from the mountaintop let the train depart
All aboard I'm conducting things like Wes Williams fresh with the brilliance
Do it from the Dogwood to the Trillium, really I'm alive and it's vital that you're feeling em'

I did for the lovin' and some bus pass cash,
My father, and my mother said it just can't last
But baby it's a struggle can I get past that?
Maybe I will, maybe I will
Track Name: Killing The Dream ft Warren Flandez
Killing The Dream Ft Warren Flandez

It was all a nightmare
I used to read Word Up magazine until the pages tear
Hanging lyrics on my wall
De La Soul, Rakim, Beastie Boys I memorized em all
I let my tape rock til making tapes stopped
Outsider like Pony Boy, and Soda Pop
Way back, when I had the lead in that pencil pack, putting raps to tracks
Remember Rappin Duke, I don't, I didn't
ever think I'd see Hip Hop so far from its beginnings
Now Rappers in the lime light don't rhyme tight
Tryin' to get paid, blowin up the world star page
Born sinner, opulence for the winner
Now I'm pushing 30 eating mac and cheese for dinner
Fuck my ex girl, fuck you Sony
Plus Revenue Canada who took it all from me
I'm falling down like you thought you'd see
Call the number disconnected aww gee, living the dream

And if you don't know, ya never knew kypper

Just like being in the dream, as I rode across the sky
So lonely I'm the only one
I wish that you could see what I see,
When I'm alone, living the dream


Martin had dream, of letting freedom ring
And Kyp he had a dream, and hoped that he would sing
But Martin was assassinated by people infatuated with hatred
invaded all that he considered sacred
And until Memphis they were watching him
That wasn't the dream he dreamt about in Washington
Non violent but gunned down
Like a new day dawning but the suns down
They killed the fucking dream of 63
And I am killing my dream because my dream is killing me
Call it cowardice or call it realness
I lost the permission slip for my field trip
It don't feel as if the embers lit
Or I'm waking from the dream and I don't remember shit
Martin Luther is a King, died living his dream
But I couldn't find the courage in my midnight sun beams.

Just like being in the dream, as I rode across the sky
So lonely I'm the only one
I wish that you could see what I see,
When I'm alone, living the dream

Dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream
Track Name: Why Y.E.S.?
WHY Y.E.S.? Ft The Chaperones


Bad broad with the face to match
5'5 with the body stacked
Stick and move put me on the mat
Oh girl why you do me like that
Had love lemme take that back
Perfect picture now I paint that black
Only pointing out the things I lack
Really think you could do me like that?

Noooo



I, I will be the same
Every single day
Still I will remain unchanged
You can have the blame
You could have walked away
So why'd you even stay?


Listen up ya wanna know the facts?
You know me not so the stop the act
Found another then you lost my back
What's his name, tell me where he at?
I ain't gonna hurt em but I think about a murder when I learned about the way that my heart got jacked
Snap back, man I know it's never worth it, though she prolly would deserve to get got right back
Clack clack but I'm not that wow
Mike Jack tell me who's bad now
Gotta tat on ya back of my autograph sorta make me laugh baby how's that sound
Ha ha kinda happy you sad
Ten years now ya leave for a fad
Lookin back on the love that we had
Did you really have to go and do me like that?

I, I will be the same
Every single day
Still I will remain unchanged
You can have the blame
You could have walked away
So why'd you even stay?


Where's my little princess
You think I'm missing you
What happened to your pussy
Who'd you give it to?
I heard your little love song
I didn't feel it though, no
Now u wanna get together?

I, I will be the same
Every single day
Still I will remain unchanged
You can have the blame
You could have walked away
So why'd you even stay?
Track Name: Waiting 4 The World 2 End
Waiting For The World To End

I said goodbye to my best friend
I grabbed my bottle and my pen
I wrote the letter I'm a send
But I'm not sorry for my sins
I bought my ticket for the train
Until next time we meet again
I got my Bible and my gin
That's my prescription medicine
I'm waiting for the world to end


I'm waiting for the world to end
So I can be beside my friends
I've seen it all and can't pretend
There's something in me to defend
I'm waiting for the world to end

We promised never to say never "never, never"
It never did no good my friend
And every time you'd say forever "ever, ever"
I'd only fuck it up again and again cause forever never ends and

I'm waiting for the world to end
So I can be beside my friends
I've seen it all and can't pretend
There's something in me to defend
I'm waiting for the world to end

I got no money left to spend "spent everything"
Ain't got no change for rainy days "it rains on me"
Got nothing left me for to say "don't say anything"
All I'd do is probably just complain "plain, so plain"
Don't own my soul cause I won't pay "no won't pay"
The landlord wants me blown away "blown away"
I know tomorrow can't replace my yesterday's
I guess today's just not my day

I'm waiting for the world to end
So I can be beside my friends
I've seen it all and can't pretend
There's something in me to defend
I'm waiting for the world to end

Tryin' to find the man in me is intimate insanity
And puzzling cause I don't see the reason why they need to see me
Get myself together, Get myself together
To fall apart's a part of me so pardon me but I believe
Autonomy is all I need and all I got is honesty
To get myself together, I got myself together
