about

This album is dedicated to the Struggle, the beauty of life in all its facets, the raw truth that lies in wait behind the veil of our constructs, the experience of Life that needs no correlations to religion, creed, caste, ology or ism, but the obligation of humanity as one...

This album is a declaration of war against oppression - whether it be physical or "spiritual," whether from friend or foe, unafraid to call out against the lies of ex-compatriots, unapologetically expressing what needs expressed, unafraid of what needs changed...

This album is an elegy of the past, a farewell to the future, and an embrace of the present - the redemptive quality of the now as a measure of faith, that who we are is more a representation of who we be, and not who we were or what will come to pass - that there is no greater moment than right now...

If I do nothing else with my life, let me speak of this world for what it is, and in so doing I will give you Just Another Wonderful Struggle

Track Name: For Whom The Bells Toll/Struggle Man
For Whom The Bells Toll

If you save your soul, you lose
See your faith is supposed to prove
But to give thanks and hope don’t mean that you choose
To give grace and know won’t mean that you do

Who will save us all is a problem they’ve solved
But who will take control doesn’t always call
When your days are old for whom the bell tolls
And your faith is gone, well that’s when it’s all been lost

If you save your soul, you lose
When your faith isn’t all a calling you choose
To give thanks and know is the only true proof
That to give grace and hope, well that is all you can do
To give grace and hope, that is all you can do…

Struggle Man

Struggle Man
Don’t get in my way
Understand
Ain’t no price that I won’t pay
Everyday
Every doggone day’s just another wonderful life

And I’m on my way
To knowing that this here’s a paradise
And now we’re on our way
When you’ve been asked to be the Bride

Struggle, man,
Is that you can’t be what you are not
Understand
That this struggle is all you’ve got.

J.A.W. of Life

Say goodbye,

It’s just another wonderful life that all started with no water left to harbor in/tears flowing freely all around, but I’m hollow in/side, in stride the fact I’m swallowing the pride/my love’s boxed in and I’m following the line/pall-bearing all the pain and sorrow in/no form of faith to place wasteful wallowing/the why’s and what for’s in form of sullen whim/the cries of anguish, language hollering/for my pain to subside, and sigh, saying I’m tired of trying to fight, praying for my calling/calling Him for a new start, startling how I/could just kill all this time bottled in/bottling my lies to save face, like Solomon/bottle in my cries straight faced and falling in/line, where real men mourn that God’ll end the fight/against his own heart and call within for signs/these desperate times are always gonna send the light/another buried, another modeling the Life/where death is as common as water/when the Life of one ends, another begins again/the Life, started with no water left to harbor in’s a sign/to let go the flow and start again…

She was just another wonderful Life that all started with no water left to harbor in/no father, a mother, two brothers, and something as sovereign/as a heart that robs her with feelings, still fostering/doubt, guilt, shame, pride that built up her posturing/wondered all these years what Life was like with fathering/but nevermind, there ain’t the time for wallowing/bothering a present with a past she had no problem in/cautioning herself that emotion wasn’t causing him/to hop on in and come back, run back a raucous in/how her mother kept him out the picture, now polishing/her cuffed up feet, now scuffed up, cobbled in/a shoe she ain’t choose, born to lose in his following/footsteps falling in, hoofs left hollowed in/the destiny of many of our youth left hobbling/proof probably pouring out of each pore, swore she had a reach towards water on a beach for swallowing/but all she felt was salt stored, hollow in a state left groveling/just another wonderful maroon ship harbored in martyrdom…

Theirs was just another wonderful Life that all started with no water left to harbor in/her water broke after when they met broke, swallowing/two bottles of Heineken/chasing the vodka in/seeing each other at alcoholic’s anonymous/hoping for some kind of fresh start in a lotto win/just met a couple of days ago and decided then/they were meant to be together, meant for something more/than hording a street corner/nearest the liquor store/more than coincidence, more than an incidence of chance and circumstance/planned in advance, with inference of a purpose/still nervous/still learning, and if God heard this in his service/with wheels turning/not even sure if it’s how He surfaced/they kneel first to be a sign to these street churches/the real worship is/not in the heart of the city, but heart of man/and there’s no fear in following what you don’t understand/this broke man standing with a babe in his hands, that could be taken away in the blink of a glance/cause you’re not sewn to the earth, you’re sewn to his plans/and you’re not broke cause you’re hurt, you’re broke cause you can/be fixed, sewn back and worth more than they understand/yeah, with no water left to harbor in, you’re stuck in the sand/but you’re not sewn to the earth, you’re sewn to His plans/and there’s no fear in following what you don’t understand/yo, you’re not sewn to the earth, you’re sewn to his plans, and there’s no fear in following what you don’t understand, my man…
Track Name: We Did Paradise Everyday
Chorus:
We won’t last forever, but we all gon’ try anyway
Cause no matter the weather, we always wait for rain
To wash away what we better let go down the drain
I wonder why we never did paradise everyday…

Verse 1:
Let me that cold play in my chest/deep breath, blowing smoke with no regrets/pair of dice on the rearview rolled double six/trouble t. rubble when I take time to reminisce/ashes to ashes, this dust is what numbness gets – out there is a hustle/with no time for where the Hubble sits, I’m faced with blatant struggle/this day-to-day dance with hate in hopes love’ll/help me turn over the ignition/left hand at ten, and the other grappling the suspension/sad day in hell when I master this addiction/to hold on close, falling faster in this condition/it’s a cruel, cruel passion/that let’s me pry my parachutes mechanism in this chasm/right before my lesson lastens/as if I woke from this dream with no recollection it happened/who could say what paradise is/when the only next is a pair of lifeless eyes?/similar to the scare when night hits/and the moon and stars are as bright as light implies/lightyears away today, as distant as the God that I fear might sway/the unknown taking hold of my so-called soul/so, so deaf to the sounds of a heartbeat’s pulse/when I only imagine what’s make-believe/like the future and past outside its vagueries, and wonder why/I’m always begging please, and not to die/still blessed to breathing when I dot this i/what’s left only gives reason not to try/adhd’s and ocd’s distraction lies in a begging man’s passion for prize/wondering if Heaven’s got its asking price…

Chorus:
We won’t last forever, but we all gon’ try anyway
Cause no matter the weather, we always wait for rain
To wash away what we better let go down the drain
I wonder why we never did paradise everyday…

Verse 2:
The only Heaven that I know is better role/step inside these Adidas and find a severed soul/worn down by the woos of a lesser foe/wool covered several times before I’d get the memo/wake up from the nightmarish life where this/idea of evil could only be seen by who fights fairest/demons in every scene, and I’d perish/before I find the true terrorism is my wherewithal/open my eyes, and find the careless fall/mistaking my kindness for non-confrontational/watch friends victimized by oppression’s all/and realize my calling’s to love more intentional/that’s why I gladly seek the Passion’s physique/and withstand the pain that happily lashes at me/risen from ashes that flagrantly speak/out of hatred for the way we were meant to be free/still, the days never cease/with or without the evils that men do dangerously/Please, take them from me/cause nevermind what we do, I hate what I see/wanna be an agent of Peace/so in the past, I’ve laid at His feet/and now it’s time to receive the paradise I see, and everyday patiently be Me…

Bridge:
When I was alone in the face of death, and I was saving every breath for something worth me/eternity was the place I slept, all along my feet just crept naturally/and I never wanted to die, cause nothing ever felt right inside nor gave me no peace/until I saw the look in your eye, I never knew that Paradise was You and Me…
Track Name: Sunny Babe
Sunny Babe

Verse 1:
From your hoops to Hulu hips
With two dips of coconut, you strut like “who knew this?”
Your Zulu kiss, your kufi coolness
The screws that I miss are the holes that you fix
In the ways you confess your savoir sex-appeal
I die to my pride when I’m eyeing your “dress
To kill” Any notion of past
The ocean that’s vast is the water I tread for a treasure that lasts
Amidst all that I couldn’t compare
The way that everything you are is more than the average man could bare
Steady grinning, {you} found me in the back ready to listen
Peaking out of the shadows cast heavy on how I’m living
“Hello,” you said in a vocal tone similar to Nina Simone
Your poems sound as sweet as her songs
And the heat rose from your toes peaking
In hopes of a glance at the passion our eyes meeting would know.

Refrain:
So glad I think I found the Truth in You
I’m glad I think I found the Truth in You
{This is love and Your love is the best}

Verse 2:
Exchanged the ten digits
And tamed within the limits
The game that what makes this strange fruit get finished
To the core, push the limits
For some more of what’s endless
Do that once or twice to the reggae in the distance
Suddenly, you can’t quite figure how you got to this point
With a knot in your throat, singing up in this joint
Time to go and though you barely even held her hand
You can still taste her thoughts, touched by her plans
She’s on your mind ‘til that new day arise
She’s on your mind ‘til that new day arise
{She’s on your mind}
You’re on your grind with your “eyes on the prize”
Moving on with the routine of your life,
To your surprise you get that text
And your mind worries a little less
Cause that’s a sign that what you felt wasn’t ridiculous
On your “grown man” with a schoolboy crush
Trying to be true to the soul like Trugoy does.


Bridge:
I’m ready for a romance
I’m ready to do it all the way
I’m hungry, said my grace
Deep in love, that’s what it’s gotta be
If I said I didn’t live for it
Then I would be lying to you

Verse 3:
Now, see, I’d call you a queen to my kingdom
But that would only be magic cause the passion would have tragical meaning
I’d call you a moon to my earth
But then the light from your eyes would soon fade and truly never be yours
I’d call you the stars beyond Mars
But why would I ever let another outshine spiritual guidance inside
I’d call you my heart from the start to the finish
But then part of that story was the ending.

Lil’ Shugah

Yeah, I’ve been with Miss Brown, but your Miss Brown Wonder/this town ain’t big enough to hold me down/so you know on this ground/it’s only right I found love when I had enough/ready to get down, and gone for the last round/perpetually packed for the background/pushed you away just in case the day came to cast out/a higher calling on my back sounded right at the time/but I was blind to the fact, how/I was down-for-the-count cause you were down despite my flaws/and waited around when the night’s crowd applause/left you in awe, then left me alone/but simple and plain you were next to the throne/at the right hand of God’s, when I was down on all fours/applause or none at all, you were right for the cause/opened my eyes to see the steps at the doors/came to me a package deceptively large

You’re my Lil’ Shugah
To have and to hold

Track Name: Clicka Klackah
Intro:
Keep Shining
Clicka Klackah
Grab a spray can and smack a wack rapper

Hook:
Like a gun to a bullet
Better think twice now before you step to it
Run-DMC to Rick Rubin
That’ll rock your socks off when you get to groovin’
Off with your Adidas and your Pumas
Take a deep plunge and feel your lungs fill with sewage
Hip Hop’s been losing
Before it’s too late, grab your spray can and spew it

Verse 1:
Like a clack to a klickah, boom-ping-pang-pow after cocking back quicker/blast off that rap-cat stigma/then realize later I’m just a laughed at ginger/that got a soul and voice to behold/and got ’em scared dancing when there’s a choice on their own to go/see, the choices are yo’s but only when you fit the bill of the boys in the royal blue and gold/no, I ain’t talking ‘bout the cops when they’re all just some pawns/like Lee Harvey Oswald/yeah, their full nelson got y’all fighting in the fox hole/to make sure we got oil/put on your boots and fatigues/and see just what I mean when they’re scooping your spleen/off the sidewalk/still using white chalk/to brainwash your minds and ultimately watch your grind halt/sorry Chuck, but the real Public Enemy/still wears a suit and tie and puppets what’s a friend to me/the real N.egroes W.ith A.ttitude/never had to hold a gun to watch us bleed for acting fool/yeah, the Black Star keeps shining/but only cause the garbage beyond us keeps dying/it ain’t just hip-hop that’s almost dead/it’s every single one of us who’s neck deep and still in bed…

Verse 2:
Economy down, crack sales went up/we front as heroes, but Heaven knows the hell in us/just like Johnny Appleseed, a dough boy that chiefs reefer/smokes with Joe Blow on the low Sharon Peters/not your average Tom, Dick, or Harry either/Johnny boy got money, boy, but John Doe to your Derek Jeter/and Mary Jane got his brain on lock/Johnny blaze, he’s insane with the pot/merely in spots of suburbia, so hurry up, the hustle game is really mean/stay away from Mikey, cause Mikey’ll eat anything/ratted everybody out, even fell for Billy Jean/boo-boo, the fool drools, chasing the silly dream/Johnny got a one track mind like Suzy Q/Sally Sally, mo Mally, banana-fana, hooty-hoo/who knew that John-john slept with Plain Jane/Joe Blow’s main/found his niche, but wasn’t able to slain Cane/cause he snitched on his main man…

Hook 2:
Don’t wanna believe in the stories
That they tell you on the block’s corner
So you keep living your life like
There ain’t nothing wrong with the news they report ya
Until one day when you’re forced
To Wonder just how their Theory Hazit
And that’s when you hear the chamber
Now you’re in danger of facing
Clicka Klackah…

K.ill O.’Reilly

Verse 1:
Used to let ‘em know with the hooty-hoo/packed a fruity loop in a pez dispenser of Scooby Doo/ask the Idiots who used to skip to the lew/tossing Third Bass when I’m off my rooty-poo/told y’all put ‘em high like a doobie do, Brother/shady enough that I might truly do ____/time for me to go ahead and get on my go-round/checkered past square-dancing at the ho-down/pitched a perfect game and they still don’t know how/that there was a day that the brother carried the four-pound/never did, only divied out the product/dipped in the freshest, and shimmied round your daughter/hung with sets that had no patience for who’s harder/where Lil’ Wayne’s got duked adjacent to June Carter/to prove who Cash rules in American History X/dreams that legends couldn’t conceive who the misery hexed/generational curses that epiphany blessed/perversions of the truest form, where humanity’s best/couldn’t compare to the revelation of God/where the closet came clean to believe/in a redeeming quality/yeah, I once hollered show me the Hollywood/’til Jesus let me get a taste for what the salty should…

I’ll write it and we’ll do it LIVE…

Chorus 1:
Now who’s a Humble Beast, trying to Reach the people
Coming up short when I brandish the weapon that’s lethal
Your Lampmode’s like no match to the light
When the King’s Kulture can’t keep it real long enough to be right
Don’t even get me started on who’s Flame retardant
Crossing-over for the mass appeal of a market
Mixing business with art can’t be found in your parchment
This here’s the Inside Edition,
It’s time to K.ill O.’Reilly

Verse 2:
Dance in the devil’s shoes/mic check who you stepping to/wrong side of the track, black side of the crescent moon/coast to coast repping homicide/I don’t kill rapper’s hope, that’s something death will do/check your calendar/death devours and speed-powers over these manatee sea cow-ards/cute/now leap out your boat slowly/oh you know Jesus? We’ll see when you don’t eat/days and nights to 3 am/munition flow the 4zero cal. and/shhh, listen, BANG/that’s the sound of the police’s peace/shooting down a downtown sixteen year young’s dream/his mother’s forever wondering/what he could’ve done with that scholarship money/redefining “peace out” when I see you last/your teeth gnash but Adam Lanza ain’t even gasp/so kiss a saint, diss a rapper/make him dissipate, or evaporate/like a midget bladder pissing paint/what’s a matter with your FACE!?!?/I know how you feel/passing them faces, no one’s real/dragging your weightless feet to lunch meal/by yourself in the back/trapped and tempted to buy yourself a new black/and mild/bittersweet child/you’re not alone in your depression/you’re surrounded by the demented/Walking Dead is filmed on your campus/in your corporate cubicle and church-sides mansion/no wonder how the pastor’s Charles Manson/Wonder Brown has y’all dancing scared/Know the Truth and die for it if you dare…

Verse 3:
Dissonant for all you hypocrite/I’ll use theo-logical as a synonym when/you’re out of touch like Hall and Oates, riddling/20-something A.D. but still HD illiterate/you think the devil inside you has given in/well you’re in for one helluva ride still living in/the form of Casper that can’t master what’s simpleton/after what you can’t touch as if still listening/to the allegories of Thor/or Zeus in Athena that you ain’t even think to explore for/your proof that you and your troop troubadour/pseudonym for your lust to control who speaks on the floor/let’s just call it like it is/you’re a political profiteer, not a prophet in this biz/well this here’s a coffin to you kids/that need to dead that noise before you lost what ain’t been fixed…

Chorus 2:
I’m just a Humble Beast, trying to Reach the people
Coming up short when I brandish the weapon that’s lethal
My Lampmode’s like no match to the light
When the King’s Kulture can’t keep it real long enough to be right
Don’t even get me started on who’s Flame retardant
Crossing-over for the mass appeal of a market
Mixing business with art can’t be found in your parchment
Their truth is Fox News to me
It’s time to K.ill O.’Reilly…
Track Name: Coffin Grin
Coffin Grin

Verse 1:
Lost in the shuffle of your Broadway rebuttal/selling yourself out to the posh life, and puzzled/how it all falls fast when you cautionly cuddled/up to nobody special, while everybody’s struggle/crawled into your Yoohoo/who you know wasn’t the apple of your Juice Crew/coo-coo-cachooed ‘til that caboose went choo, choo, choo/chugga cause you thought you were too fool proof/for Cocoa Puffs, next time a Fruity Loop/ask God what happened to the Jujy-Fruit/Jesus, thought you knew/guess it was worse that that trap was also boobied too/threw you for the loopty loop/skipped to the lump in your throat when you stooped for few/and fell short/next time you reach out to touch someone, Son/ know what the hell for…

Chorus 1:
Father, where your daughter been?
Step away from the altar ‘fo you give a false offering
Looking back at the past got you salty
Just imagine the cost flossing your Coffin Grin…

Bridge:
Seems like a Sunday morning, overcast and hanging low
Another Passover portion, the kinda cold that stole your soul
Still wonder where your joy been, ain’t been seen since she had to pass go
A Coffin Grin won’t tell her story, while we’re baptized and laying low…

Verse 2:
Hanging at the cross, like some brothers on the corner/is a common misconception of a common disorder/common sense tells that two intersect/to border four parts of your “neck”/but fall short for the fifth part/the common ground you bought on borrowed time/similar but the not the same to your bottom line/something called collateral created to call yours mine/mine like numb to collective common eye/crossed from too many calling themselves “common-like” one minute/the next they’re screaming “God’s divine”/elect, scheduled as special from God’s design/appointed to reveal what’s been allotted time/Good God, that’s a sign/that there’s certainly not much common between your god and I…

Chorus 2:
Father, where your Son been
Step away from the altar ‘fo you leave your wunderkind
Got your reflection often wondering
If Heaven comes knocking on your Coffin Grin…

Bridge repeats
Track Name: Apocalips Now
Apocalips Now

Verse 1:
You see they labeled this young boy a drowning man/swimming in something you can’t see from the ground you stand/heard their screams when I reached a rousing hand/empty dreams when they preached how to be a man/with one hand in the cookie jar/make sure you give it all/while they take for the sake of looking hard/at the cold hard facts that I should be more/than meets the eye, transformed from a heathen’s scar/blood of lamb in this beating heart/son of man standing for something that can’t redeem in part/covered hand dampened by the bleeding, marred/forsaken, forgotten, and fiending for a preemie’s start/what’s the worth of a premature, new beginning/see, it’s either-or in your neither-nor need for sinning/point the finger and I’m preaching your dreams of ending/as if Saul hadn’t blinked for one more need to be repenting/follow me now/cause where we’re going the rabbit hole’s a little bit bigger, so your mouth can swallow your crown/wisdom long in the tooth of those martyring clowns/vision gone without proof of a heart to be found/not even a trick up the sleeve/sickness found in the slight of hand that a man’s fingers slipped in between/the busy-ness of greed, silliness in me/for wanting to place the blame on what’s killing me in deed/indeed.

Chorus:
Apocalips
Now
Bleeding from your
Apocalips
Now
Preaching with your
Apocalips

Verse 2:
As time goes/dealing with the highs, low/while I refine the ingredients of my prose/oz.’s and pints, gallons and kilos/last meals before the Gallows call fiends home/until then I’ma snap necks/who preach aspirations of life after death as assets/no need for your archaic religions/theologies imposed as a prison/Jesus came to dead that vision/but if you ain’t willing to hang it up, you ain’t willing to listen/the church ain’t no better than the heathens they’re screaming at/check your bibles if you ain’t into believing that/Lord, wanna call out the hypocrite/Lord, wanna fall out like Benny Henn did, flipping it/preachers stealing money from the people/with a gift of gab no more prophetic than evil/Catholic and Protestant fronting as if God’s in it/only to build up its conglomerate/6 billion people outside of the steeple/with their own mouths to feed, while the meek inherit the feeble/yeah, I’m just preaching…

Chorus 2:
Apocalips
Now
Bleeding from your
Apocalips
Now
Preaching with your
Apocalips Now

Bridge:
The devil lies within you
To do like Leviathan do
And that’s why you need to save your soul
Oh, the devil lies within you
To do like Leviathan do
And that’s why you need to save your soul
Or so that’s what they say
Preaching with your Apocalips Now…

Darke Bros.

Verse 1:
This a Darke Bros. revival/this Arkham Asylum/the dark knight’s nightmare/don’t play with the child/I don’t tell dark wing duck tales, I tell tales of Darke trials/spark fires in the forest if you forfeit/send your S.O.S. smoke signals/I’ll send your warship solar/heat-seeking sonar missiles/aiming at your bones fin’ to poll our digits/now that what I call a freeze frame/and that’s called a double entendre for you pee-brains/let me open up your mind, I’m a doctor/with this dark audio I do hip hop proper/my clockwork morbid, sort of savage/good for laughs of lashings of the old ultra Alex/you don’t wanna battle these mad men/ladies and gents, the Darke Bros. will turn you to past tense…

Chorus:
When the Sun goes down, Son goes down
I ride for my kin, and die for my crown
When the Sun goes down, Son goes down
Brother for life, no death in the darkeness
When the Sun goes down, Son goes down
I ride for my kin, and die for my crown
When the Sun goes down, Son goes down
