Track Name: History
I wish I could find the words to say,
to make this right and the Pain go away.
hope is the only reason I lay awake.
and I keep wearing this smile though my intentions are fake.
and I'm ashamed!
that abandoned you
which sparked the flame
an Idea so abrupt and unjust!
god swept you away from us.
am I too blame!
such a power thought that lingers in mind,
confined to world that will never be define.
accepting this,
the fact that you're gone from my life.
Fright sets in,
and from within
I begin to begin
myself.
Track Name: The Value of a Dollar
Its Make or Break! Ill Give this all I've got,
Ill sacrifice Everything, To ensure my Place,
A future so bright, A story of Gold,
and full of closure!
Ive never Felt Like this!
Time is slipping by! Right Through my fingers,
its time to decide
What makes you Happy!
Ive never Felt Like this!
I won't fail at this. I won't fail at this,
A life of hoping, Waiting and Searching
I won't fail!
Your Words cut deep. My wounds will heal,
Equip my heart and Mind, I have My shield.
I never thought my mind would be,
As clear, as it is today
we've always had that get-away. We've always had Fairway.
Ive never felt like this! A miracle at best,
and with hard work an sweat. I won't Fail at this.
Track Name: Obey None, Defy All
Dragged,
Ive been dragged to the bottom.
I hit the Ground Head First,
and I learned was, and all I've learned.
In all Life's disasters,
Defy all odds, you'll come out a Champion.
Climb the mountains in your head, Instead.
Of holding on to the things that bring regret.
I've seen the way and I've made mistakes
but I'm learning to change my fate
I'm not a shamed
no I'm not ashamed I'm learning day by day.
Cause when life seems perfect,
Everything can End, In an instant.
Prepare yourself For The Worst!
sometimes we find ourselves,
Heading in the direction towards what we think is best, instead.
of heading towards what we know is true
to the beating hearts in our chest,
what if's, we'll never ask this
because we know,
theres no wrong decisions made,
just different paths that we take.
The past doesn't equal our future,
some wise words to live by.
DONT LET UP!
Obey None, Defy ALL
In all Life's disasters,
Defy all odds, you'll come out a Champion.
Climb the mountains in your head, Instead.
Of holding on to the things that bring regret.
I've seen the way and I've made mistakes
but I'm learning to change my fate
I'm not a shamed
no I'm not ashamed I'm learning day by day.
OBEY NONE, DEFY ALL!
Track Name: Negativity Won't Destroy Me
I am an Outsider
Banished, Left to Parish.
Doomed to Rot,
Hopeless Ill be left
and Forgotten
Buried amongst the waste, Humanity the Disgraced.
A pain you can't relate, surrounded in a shade of grey.
How could you Relate, you made the same Mistakes,
Theres Subtext in the way, Negativity gets the best of me!
But I will Change, I will Rid my Hate, I will Rid this hate!
Greed, Has poisoned our souls
It has barricaded, Our minds
Our Knowledge as left us cynical and our cleverness,
our cleverness unkind.
Even if I could start over again, Well i do it the same
There was a story to be told, That I fucking wrote.
I fucking Wrote!
Theres strength hidden in fear, It reflects what keeps me here,
Trying my best to think clear and let the truth ring in the air!
If Im only being honest, Im afraid of change.
Im Afraid of change.
Track Name: IAMMYOWNCHI
"I'm only being honest, I'm afraid of change.
The constant fear of letting go of everything,
and even though the summer brings a sense of reminder.
To pack my bags and leave this place.
Well i never knew the simple things in life were so hard to find,
But i won't let the negativity destroy
me cause I AM MY OWN CHI,
Your hate will fuel what i create,
and what i create will fix my mental state.
Today we write history, and that history is tomorrows Blasphemy!
Becase the World is an evil and Dark place,
Theres light even in the darkest places,
I found the light Even in the darkest places!
I'm only being honest, I'm afraid of change.
The constant fear of letting go of everything,
and even though the summer brings a sense of reminder.
To pack my bags and leave this place,
cause I AM MY OWN CHI.
Its just the people here, and the past few years.
They've gotten the best of me, and I can't sleep, and too those who didn't believe in me! You never know if you don't try!
Well i never knew the simple things in life were so hard to find,
but i won't let the negativity destroy me
Cause I AM MY OWN CHI."
Track Name: Souvenir
I wouldn't say I'm in a perfect Place,
But a state of in-between,
With the world and what i see,
I WILL NOT BREAK!
Or be pushed by my mistakes,
I will keep my head straight,
and learn from what has..
Pushed me to be the man I am today,
I don't know why i did what i did,
Its neither here nor there,
I refuse to make the same mistakes
you're missing the point,
such few can fucking hold the weight!
Such Few can hold the Weight.
Ive been to Hell and Back
and brought you back a souvenir!
