Track Name: The Horizon
The Horizon
I can sink my eyes in
I am rising
Got my whole life ahead of me
The Horizon
I can sink my eyes in
I am rising
The past is truly dead to me

Sitting on a mission that is bigger than my ass
No slacking, lackadaisical or harping on the past
Another chance will come even though my last one crashed
Learning all the time to embrace the shadow's facts
Elegance is beauty but my fun is truly crass
With this lifetime, give to my breath's last
Walking on the edge between what people never ask
Saying what I want just to see what even happens
Picking up transmissions from my radio head
I can tune into them and let circuitry spread
Antennae honesty with no pretense
Trusting these guidelines
I'm beautifully intense

The Horizon
I can sink my eyes in
I am rising
Got my whole life ahead of me
The Horizon
I can sink my eyes in
I am rising
The past is truly dead to me

Dodging left and right the sticky, icky low blows
I laugh and walk away and choose to take the high roads
The things that I could say would undo fates of my few foes
But instead I use these words to write within my gospels
Hopping on a train to cut distance right in half
I sing, whistle blow in harmony as I extract
The sting of loss of those I thought that actually had my back
Truth is that only really wanted what I have and
Picking up transmissions from my radio head
I can tune into them like a fair-weather friend
I give 'em no time when there's no respect
Let them fall to side lines- the past is dead

Hell no- with you I won't be breaking bread

Freudian slips on my full lips
Roll my eyes at your head trips
I fill up my cup and don't drip
I walk right past shady players with fake scripts
Nay-sayers, the matrix
I take my sword and I cut this
With reverence I crush this
Rising ripe in my own timing
Eyes on the horizon

The Horizon
I can sink my eyes in
I am rising
Got my whole life ahead of me
The Horizon
I can sink my eyes in
I am rising
The past is truly dead to me
Track Name: Thick in the Mix
The answers came at once in a tidal wave
Engage in the blocks that were made
To save your life- each layer
Of encrusted cement
We glazed over acting older
Thinking we could never lament sober
Cuz we were spent
A fake nice with a guarded spice
Just so we could melt the ice and get through the day
Of ego scab-picking play
No longer prey or predator
I choose to better her
Myself, My Queen
Reveal the unseen
I don't need to explain what I mean

Privy does and privy is
A gentle soul with a heavy sivv
Ready to let go of a dig
This world can be so shallow
Spirit lives!
I work to shine my halo in the mist
Thick in the mix of a deep soul
I give freely- then I let go

These secret stories of ancient sky
To vast to hold in my human eye
Watching life pass me by
Tired of wheels spinning
Everyone racing- no one winning
Quick! The light is dimming!

I write to live, paying a dollar, I gladly give
For lined freedom of black composition
Blank pages put between them
So held back by deep engagements
Found helpers, ancient sages
Captured by sabotage- bad seeds of mirage
So conceded, glad you made it
I receded, now I'm gaining
I'd rather bleed and be humbled
Like low-dry on tumble
That's the way the cookie crumbles
And when I stumbled
You're so viciously advantageous
No, you never hesitated

Privy does and privy is
A gentle soul with a heavy sivv
Ready to let go of a dig
This world can be so shallow
Spirit lives!
I work to shine my halo in the mist
Thick in the mix of a deep soul
I give freely- then I let go

These secret stories of ancient sky
To vast to hold in my human eye
Watching life pass me by
Tired of wheels spinning
Everyone racing- no one winning
Quick! The light is dimming!
Track Name: Whether or Not
Whether or not you feel that what I got is hot

Song one you can call the job done
I was about to go but no because the fun's just begun
You didn't know that I could spit a verse like this
Neither did I until I stopped trying and just did it

Whether or not you feel that what I got is hot
Or cold or bold or not
This flow you just can't stop
It's coming out my mouth and it's ringing in my ears
And I got the best of both worlds serving me like Belvedere
I got rhythm and I was born with it
I was dancing in my mamaz womb
Just ask her check my credit
I danced before I walked and I sang before I talked
And the gifts that have been brought to me
Are blessed and never stop
I use it for good to serve the less fortunate
Where I come from is not a palace
But that's where I'm headed
I feel fancy but I got no gold yet
I gamble with dry because I'm slippery when wet

Whether or not you feel that what I got is hot
Or cold or bold or not
This flow you just can't stop

Though I can pass as white bread, I'm Puerto-Rican
Irish, Peruvian, 5th generation Incan
I dress loud and I'm tweekin' on the weekend
And I own it and I know it
And I'm blessed to be a freak and
New York roots with a Nor-Cal nest
I'm here to build a world where I can feel tough in a dress
It's okay to make a mess if you just do your best
Track Name: Heart Open
Love is a funny thing
You never know when it's gonna sting

Don't give up girl! Keep your heart open, yea!
Don't give up girl! You've got to bring it, yea!

High times, write rhymes
I don't really know how to act sometimes
Cross lines, cause crimes
Think that it's better that we read signs
Make right, take time
I see in plain sight
Ready for the night
Ready for a shift
Calling in the highest level lift
I feel my Spirit gift

Calling in the highest love
One that I know that I'm worthy of

Keep your heart open!

Love is a funny thing
You never know when it's gonna sting

Don't give up girl! Keep your heart open, yea!
Don't give up girl! You've got to bring it, yea!

High times, write rhymes
I don't really know how to act sometimes
Cross lines, cause crimes
Think that it's better that we read signs
Make right, take time
I see in plain sight
Ready for the night
Ready for a shift
Calling in the highest level lift
I feel my Spirit gift

Calling in the highest love
One that I know that I'm worthy of
Taking chances with romance
When it's worthy of the risk, yea

Love is worthy of the risk
Yea yea yea yea yea yea

Keep your heart open!
