Track Name: The Spring Show
1. The Spring Show

It’s the Spring Show / the time is now everybody get free I’m a show you how/
So let the Breeze Blow / we can work it out live love cuz that’s really what this life is about/
And the Trees Grow / cuz the seeds we sow make a difference in the lives of the people we know/
And Watch this Emcee Glow / cuz I’m a rock for sho’ shine this light full of grace while I chase the globe/
Cuz Everybody knows / you got it deep in your soul we all search to find truth cuz we need it to grow/
There’s only one way to go / God’s will is the goal his son died innocent cuz we reap what we sow/
So stay up on your toes / sometimes we might fall down but can’t quit gotta get up gotta settle it now/
And keep your eyes to the road / don’t waste time looking around the here and now is where God will be found/
Don’t get distracted by the dough / yeah that money don’t glow can’t save you from a life full of highs and lows/
Or all the money that you owe / cuz debt is the code this world thrive off the interest from the money we owe/
Cuz even though you’re broke / you’re not the only one although life’s not easy on this lonely run/
Or have reasons to lay low / you can hide from none just keep your eyes on the rise of the guiding son/
You gotta just say no / can’t fall in the fold be unique do it different don’t follow the mold/
Ain’t gonna take it anymore / cuz this life is cold but don’t mean you gotta lay down and take it though/
Life has meaning and I’m sure / grab on and take hold just know your life’s worth more than silver and gold/
There’s many great things in store / and I’m a claim ‘em for sho’ and live this life full of faith while I chase the globe/

It’s the Spring Show/
Track Name: All My People
2. All My People

Things look good when I step in the place/ hear some dope instrumentals just about to be laced/
By some local emcees thirsty for a taste of that spotlight/ rock mics and hold the space/
Occupied by the illest emcees to try/ to move crowds like Dove and Plug Wonder Why/
Cuz I keep this tongue native when I’m touching the sky/ and I’m fly everyday like family stoning with Sly/
Too many people in this rap think it’s do or die/ I keep it light with a chuckle then proceed to sigh/
Sometimes when it’s bad I might even cry/ not afraid to show emotions or at least I try/
To keep it real no facades got that look in your eye/ like I’m a supper rap star steady passing you by/
But I came for one thing to catch this groove tonight/ while you’re standing over there trying to prove you’re shy/

So all my people in the back know you’re feeling this track so just/ move with it, groove with it/
And all my people in the front yeah yall know what you want so just/ move with it, groove with it/
And all my people on the left I see yall keeping it fresh yall just/ move with it, groove with it/
And all my people on the right steady shining that light yall just/ move with it groove with it/

Just lose your self in it get with it don’t be a cynic / life is too short to be a critic/
If that’s your attitude then forget it/ I don’t mess around cuz this sounds exquisite/
You can frown cuz I get it been down for a minute/ I’m a hit it round town wear this crown while I’m in it/
Clown if you feel it get down if you hear it/ love the Son of God give a pound for the spirit/
Guilty cuz I did it spirit-filled life is what I’m living/ second chance to help in this fight is what I’m given/
I’m a rock it loud for the crowd when I’m ripping/ cuz lies will make you think you stand proud when you’re slipping/
God wrote the script and It’s setting me free/ don’t agree with this plea thanks for letting me be/
Cuz I’m a hold it down and put some glue with it/ stick you to this sound so you can move/

So all my people in the back know you’re feeling this track so just/ move with it, groove with it/
And all my people in the front yeah yall know what you want so just/ move with it, groove with it/
And all my people on the left I see yall keeping it fresh yall just/ move with it, groove with it/
And all my people on the right steady shining that light yall just/ move with it groove with it/
Track Name: The Fall
3. The Fall

Just another day in the life of the S.I.V./ Keep my face to the light cuz yeah yall know me/
Never phony when I walk this world so lonely/ but when I need my crew for sure Deepspace hold me/
Always keep my eyes open cuz there’s more to see/ than all the people wearing blinders making more than me/
Got me driving 50 miles in my S.U.V./ every day to make a paycheck for my family/
But that’s cool I’m no fool and I possess the tools/ for success in the stress without bending the rules/
I went to school down in Florida beaches and pools/ but didn’t graduate from college though my knowledge is full/
And complete beat the concrete paving the streets/ for a job or a career in an industry/
That’s unique in a field that agrees with me/ but I fail to find anyone that believes in me/

Come one come all whether you’re short or tall/ step right up don’t stall/
Cuz whether you’re right or wrong or your fight is gone/ you gotta get back up when you fall/

Flat on my back alas my vitals intact/ haven’t registered what happened or how to react/
Should I try to stand up or should I sit back/ and ponder the real truth to understand this fact/
Cuz all I know is that I feel pain where my heart is at/ the hurt is mental not cardiac but still I rack/
My brain to maintain and I struggle and strain/ to figure thangs and the reason why I came up lame/
No one to blame but self when I’m freezing the frames/ of the events that occurred just to rid me of fame/
Only the name of the Most High cleanse me of shame/ and I’m a praise Him everyday if it’s all the same/
So I get back on my horse and hit the streets again/ no longer worry about fronting for approval of men/
With my eyes on the Most High keep His spirit with in/ let Him orchestrate my journey wrapped in folds of ten/

Come one come all whether you’re short or tall/ step right up don’t stall/
Cuz whether you’re right or wrong or your fight is gone/ you gotta get back up when you fall/

Last call cuz we all just be playing the wall/ and act like nothing’s going on underlining it all/
But it takes energy and motion if we’re moving a ball/ and sometimes we try to stand up though we’re learning to crawl/
Cuz that’s the short and the small of it take fruit from all of it/ life in abundance simple living keep it moderate/
That’s the big and tall of it make sure you’re all in it/ and give up your big britches theories on dominance/
It’s all providence that keeps me alive/ and justifies affiliation with Deepspace5/
I’m gonna love my nine brothers ‘til the day that I die/ for helping me push through when I struggle and strive/
Cuz survival is the key when circumstance is running it/ dumbing it down having trouble finding the fun in it/
The more you’re blessed the more often you’re on the hunting list/ the heavens are open Jehovah reign down some Son on it/

Come one come all whether you’re short or tall/ step right up don’t stall/
Cuz whether you’re right or wrong or your fight is gone/ you gotta get back up when you fall/
Track Name: Listen To This
4. Listen To This

Listen this is what I was born to do/ speak unique over beats son I’m warning you/
Street prophet on the block rock your corner crew/ comprehend one word or maybe more than two/
Listen this is what I was born to do/ speak unique over beats son I’m warning you/
Street prophet on the block rock your corner crew/ keep air beneath my wings so I can soar with you/

I get more in to this music I do/ can’t explain the way the groove make me feel brand new/
Familiar with a twist like some soul renewed/ I’m light stepping on the backs of my foes in two’s/
Know the chosen few so let me grow with you/ been doing this for a while so I know what’s due/
I encode the clues so that my soul accrue/ the interest of the most high molding you/
Just like my man Wu got the Golden Shu/ Lost Step gain respect like the oldest Crew/
Phat KATS sticking tracks like we holding glue/ but never heard like this thirst that I hold for true/
Music do this like some grown folks do/ it’s in my heart, bone, muscles, and my hormones too/
Spirit navigates everything I’ve told to you/ so open up this free gift and let it show for you, listen/

Listen this is what I was born to do/ speak unique over beats son I’m warning you/
Street prophet on the block rock your corner crew/ comprehend one word or maybe more than two/
A three four or five I keep the party live/ I’m sowing seeds with this music while yall shuck and jive/
Gonna shine on this mic so yall can open your eyes/ be sure to eat these raps up before you open your prize/
Won’t see Sivion rock a rap disguise / complete with ice, wads of cash, and a wealth of lies/
See ah I fit my britches not too big for you guys/ cuz I keep it down to earth learn and multiply/
Spread this wisdom out thin across the surface of the world/ cleaning up this rap music for the boys and girls/
See ah it’s up to you to make a change for the better/ I’m a spread this butter while yall chase after cheddar/

Listen, this is my life you can tell on sight/ I was built to juggle raps while I tame this mic/
My mother always knew I’d have my name in lights/ from the spirit of the Most High flaming bright/
I keep it “Out-a-Sight” when the day turns night/ though you try to do it wrong it just may turn right/
This is a celebration got an all invite/ trying to untangle this music like a fallen kite/
Trapped in the tree of life woven deep within the branches/ In debt to the Rolls Royce, Beamer and your Mansions/
Simplify your life can’t keep it so demanding/ give it all to God so you can reap from what you’re planning/
So best believe I won’t say it ’less I do it/ flow with energy from Jehovah like fluid/
Opportunity to stick love son I glue it/ sending out this butterfly kiss nothing to it/
Track Name: Going Through It
5. Going Through it. - Feat. Braille

We’re going through it, the hard times, good times, bad times/
Were going through it, the long days, good days, hard days/

Ever since the year of the one nine seventy two/ born with initials of G.W./
Not one but two so we’re double new/ got a twin so we share what we’re going through/
In this world full of strife while we’re paying dues/ all these forces out here making sure you lose/
But the Lord I choose not gonna snooze I’m getting up/ stay on the move nothing to prove not letting up/
No never gonna let go holding on to this old gold like some retro/
Try to hold me back all you get is a heck no / let go Lord fuel my soul like some petro/
Bet you’re cash can’t do it like my Father God can/ see beyond the surface like a modern art fan/
He’s trying to pull you out of your lonely hearts band/ cuz when you’re going through it yall it’s hard to understand/

We’re going through it, the hard times, good times, bad times/
Were going through it, the long days, good days, hard days/

So many obstacles stand in my way/ sit down or get knocked down/
Those are your options I can’t be afraid/ walk out or get knocked out/
The hot sound gets played on the radio/ hot girls do their dance in the video/
I try to hold my ground as an individual/ and not get boxed in by the stereo - types/
Late night at the studio/ lacing tracks is a daily scenario/
Perfecting the craft with few checks to cash/ pay all my bills and got less than half/
I’m not intimidated by the industry/ I do this for myself, the fans, and my family/
God is more than enough/ no matter what troubles may come/

We’re going through it, the hard times, good times, bad times/
Were going through it, the long days, good days, hard days/

This art form’s the best/ Sivion rep this love deep beyond flesh/
But Rap Music is a mess/ What once was greater has now become less/
Now the women must undress/ Think their only place of worth is laid up on the mattress/
I gotta daughter to bless/ We gotta take these wack images and put ‘em to rest/
Cuz they all cause stress/ Brothers out playing foul games over sex/
Like the menu’s Tex-Mex/ Which entrée will your crew choose for the next/
That’s right it’s time for chicken fest/ All you can eat chicken legs, thighs, and breasts/
Can’t yall see that’s hopeless/ Just a little love will bring this art form back to fresh/

Act like you might know/ Give it up for Dee-Jays cutting up the Live Show/
Open up your eyes so/ You can see this light blinding up the spot where mics glow/
And it’s B-Boy night bro/ See them battle break dancing make it like a fight show/
Blessed to work this mic yo/ Heads gas me up and tell me Sivion just might blow/
Won’t commercialize flow/ Rap circles around fake emcees like cyclones/
Shout it out like Why-O-O-OH/ Speak the word of God and leave their minds BLO-O-OWN/
Grace will break the cycle/ Pass it on to my son his middle name is Michael/
Right now this music’s ice cold/ I’m bold like Christ told love returns twice fold/

Make this love stick true/ So we can shine light and let this hate pass right through/

La la la la la la la la-ah…

Track Name: Today IS The Day
7. Today IS the Day

Eyelids open for daybreak mode/ deep breath chest full of oxygen hold/
Exhale carbon dioxide to circulate stimulate sly like a fox eye told/
Clean I commence to see this mission unfold/ unparalleled passage to my own pot of gold/
Though the road is hard because life is a journey not a destination I pray for strength to be bold/
And wisdom to go unravel all the codes/ take on your burdens and lighten up your load/
Cuz love covers a multitude of wrong and I’m on though life’s not easy on this road/
My path is unique cuz God broke the mold/ live cuz his grace was paid not sold/
Celebrate Christ cuz death has been conquered I no longer follow flesh from the days of old/

I know, I know I know, I know I know we gotta live for today/
I know, I know I know, I know I know man it’s all about today/

Now I walk in faith cuz my soul’s brand new/ my flesh tries to conjure up things to do/
I figure if I just stay busy doing deeds maybe God won’t realize that I don’t have a clue/
But God sees everything got a clear view/ atop the highest heavens share it all with you/
But only if you let go of self and submit to His will for your life then He’ll show you what’s due/
Cuz many men are selfish and love to see you lose/ and few have been chosen to help to see you through/
But God orchestrates your path through circumstance to make the choices clear so you can see your next move/
Doesn’t always make sense but the end is the root/ like the planting of the seed is justified by the fruit/
Cuz God’s ways are not that of man and our common sense logic won’t lead us to the truth/

I know, I know I know, I know I know we gotta live for today/
I know, I know I know, I know I know man it’s all about today/

So I search for he tools and the things that I need/ to speak life fluid like the blood that I bleed/
Cuz now I know that I can’t do it by myself with out Christ giving life like the air that I breathe/
I dare to believe all that He promises/ rarely conceive the fruits of His prominence/
Omnipotent strength beyond all comprehension and His mission is to save me from consequence/
Get me off this fence beg for His providence/ take His right hand cuz I won’t take a loss in this/
Claim the victory though the outcome is unclear lost in the faith that I know who’s the boss in this/
Now the day has come listen to the calling wind/ harvest as one Holy Spirit calling men/
Follow the light like a lamb to the shepherd though I never knew I’d feel it now your love got me falling in/

I know, I know I know, I know I know we gotta live for today/
I know, I know I know, I know I know man it’s all about today/
Track Name: Let Go
8. Let Go - Feat. Othello

Everybody in the place to be/ Put your lighters in the air and let the Blaze be seen/
Be ever certain that your flame is clean/ Because impurities just defame the scene/
Never know who’s just out to blow steam/ Tough circumstance put you en route to blow C.R.E.A.M./
Like spending money is good therapy/ Because you’re scaring me the way you stare at We/
Standing there looking at me like I owe you/ So you couldn’t wave your hands and let the glow through/
I’m about to show you what really happens when Christ commits to know you/ Cuz even on the low you/
Gotta put ‘em up buddy tell me what’s up cut the junk/ Ohmega Watts funk/
You can dive head first if you want/ Make you groove like Thelonious Monk ‘til your body flesh done/
Everybody just move on the one we out to have fun/ Spirit light shine bright like the Sun/
Man I know it’s difficult to run when your heart weighs a ton/ And your soul feel heat like a Gun/
But maybe that gun’s set for stunning/ Mug shot fit the description of “Done In”/
Open up your heart let go and let the love in/ Open up your heart let go and let the love in, love in, love in/

What you gonna say, what you gonna do/ when the truth is revealed and it’s sealed in the proof/
What you gonna say, what you gonna do/ when the light shines brighter than you wanted it to/
What you gonna say, what you gonna do/ let go let go let go/
What you gonna say, what you gonna do/ Sivion and Othello bring it straight to you
Track Name: Who Am I
9. Who Am I - Feat. Freddie Bruno and Playdough

Who am I a man with a positive plan/ Who I am is a stand for the carpenter’s land/
I am who the same one that mingles with you/ I pray this song will be the one that lingers with you/
Cuz there’s more to this emcee than just hip hop/ there’s more to the streets than the cars that stop/
You gotta pull back the layers to reveal the plot/ you gotta look past the surface just to see what we got/

Maintain Freddie doing the dang thang/ insane rap’s Coltrane the heads bang what we sang/
Hard to move like a grape stain Sivion songbird here to shake your A-frame/
Who got lyrics to go like these?/ And who got lyrics to show MC’s/
How to saddle up ride a beat taking on your whole fleet/ start beef and we’ll serve it up on whole wheat/
No sleep for the weary fury Judah fist/ pugilist with the linguist of a novelist/
Obelisk 9 to 5 worker and a pacifist/ Even wavelab and sound forge couldn’t master this/
Here’s a piece of my heart MC’s got passion for the people like the minister grieves/
Divinity breathes through me like the wind on the leaves/ there’s more than meets the eye homie hope it’s what you receive/

Who am I a man with a positive plan/ Who I am is a stand for the carpenter’s land/
I am who the same one that mingles with you/ I pray this song will be the one that lingers with you/
Cuz there’s more to this emcee than just hip hop/ there’s more to the streets than the cars that stop/
You gotta pull back the layers to reveal the plot/ you gotta look past the surface just to see what we got/

So just stop, it’s my turn to rock the spot/ cuz Deepspace smuggle grace when we’re calling the shots/
Bring this bounty to your block though we’ve never been caught/ we figured out your whole steez like connecting the dots/
There’s so much more to this emcee than just hip hop/ it might shock the hard rocks just to know what we got/
You can drop it in a box it’ll increase your stock price/ got mics don’t forget to check your clock twice/
That’s right I’m so precise though this life I lead will decrease set me free to by Christ-like/
God’s light can illuminate the dark night/ love conquers all even after silly bar fights/
You claim this butterfly’s supposed to be a star right/ gotta make some cheddar ‘fore you ever keep your car tight/
Who am I and open canvas in God’s sight/ hand this vessel to Christ before I rock mics/

Who am I a man with a positive stand/ Who I am is a stand for the carpenter’s land/
I am who the same one that mingles with you/ I pray this song will be the one that lingers with you/
Cuz there’s more to this emcee than just hip hop/ there’s more to the streets than the cars that stop/
You gotta pull back the layers to reveal the plot/ you gotta look past the surface just to see what we got/

Much More, than Grammy’s and cameos with A-Listers I stand below to sit up/
And pay some attention to mention/ spirit gotta grow mine’s inching/
Shine intervention see past the wrong words/ it’s Deepspace singing soul with the songbirds/
Springtime in the meantime see mine fertile while I feed mine hurdles to the seed I circle/
With a blessing and a prayer cuz the testing/ probably come quicker than I’m guessing/
And this is just music begging that we use it right/ so night life see the light when they choose to fight/
Cuz rap words backwards are not the cure/ but black birds sing freedom with the dawn for sure/
So I use a microphone to microscope and tied this rope together as I fly this hope so who am I/

Track Name: Walk With Me
11. Walk With Me

Hey Love, how was your day? Did they treat you right or the wrong way?
I ask this question serious, not trying to play/ Cuz I really want to hear what you have to say/
Man I bet you’d tell Dani when she’s calling you Shay/ Or Kenneth on the air when he’s balling with K/
Or your sister every day, but daily I pray/ That maybe today will be the day that I may/
Break through the shell of this Jar of Clay/ Releasing every drop of Love that should be on display/
Give you all that I’m worth, which no man could pay/ Put your life first, such a precious thang/
Your love is such a precious thang/ Even the stars in the sky all agree the same/
Yo your love is such a precious thang/ I thank God everyday that you took my last name/

Baby don’t you know that I thank God for you/
Even though we fight I’m still in love with you/

Hey there, how do you do, I see the long face, yeah I’m feeling it too/
If I’m supposed to share in this life with you/ Then indulge me in thought for a minute or two/
Cuz it’s been a long time since we talked for a few/ About us and the troubles that are starting to brew/
But this life comes in cycles, ain’t nothing new/ Let me be that warm hug when you’re feeling blue cuz/
I don’t want to lose you and you feel the same too/ So just take my hand and walk with me forever, “I Do”/
Don’t worry about all the struggles and doubts/ Cuz together we can do it let me prove it prove it/

Baby don’t you know that I thank God for you/
Even though we fight I’m still in love with you/

I don’t want to lose you and you feel the same too/
So just take my hand and walk with me forever, “I Do”/
Don’t worry about all the struggles and doubts/
Cuz together we can do it let me prove it, I Will/
Don’t worry about the struggles and doubts/
Together we can do it let me show you just how/
Cuz I’ll be around no matter how far we’re down/
Together we can do it let me prove it prove it/

Baby don’t you know that I thank God for you/
Even though we fight I’m still in love with you/


**Thirst Quencher (Hidden Bonus Track)

Walking on this earth flesh stays in felony space/ ready for grace ready to face this life Hell and erase/
This bad taste won’t see me waste time in petty debates/ though the Son of God lift me up it’s like I fell on my face/
Refuse to sit back complain and let my pity disgrace/ lacking record sales cuz I won’t spit it like 50 and Mase/
Who keep it locked the girls jock cuz they got plenty of bass/ I’m Sivion so bring it on cuz I got plenty of Grace/
So you can find me Iceberg because I chill and behave/ not one of these new Ice Nerds I keep it real in these caves/
Yall paper sack on these tracks like it’s your will to be slaves/ that type of logic’s nonsense like popping pills at these raves/
Disassociate with chafe Christ keeping me safe/ this beat laid by Taro but yall I’m speaking with Dave/
I keep the faith yall my ace be this meekness He gave/ in every case take this grace ‘til I’m leaving this place/

Right now you can see just how it’s cool to be foul/ you say you’re mad check this lesson cuz I’m schooling these cows/
You cried wolf like a sheep pulling wool and we found/ your incomplete not unique like Jesus ruling these crowns/
That’s cool play the fool then maybe you can beat this exit/ use your own tools complete the task then you can heed this lesson/
Figure it all out no need for God so there’s no need to bless it/ just grab your little bag of peace and get ready for the next hit/
That’s cool play the fool cuz maybe you can change this game up/ still floss but with a different way to throw your pinky rings up./
You know you and me weren’t all that different before we came up/ but we both made a different choice when approached with this fame lust/

If sin quenches your thirst then there’s no need to beg for water/ blinded by your own ignorance like some sheep led out to slaughter/
If only the truth can set you free why should I bother/ why should I bother/

While you speak death on tracks I gotta look out for my daughter/ little angel-wrapped special gift of God is what I call her/
And my son little one I hope he grows up to be taller/ and turns away from this carnal urge to be a Baller/
I’ll share these words because the seeds come from a father/ concerned that the flames of this trap only will get hotter/
I’ll teach them faith to let got and cast their cares upon the altar/ become strength in Christ just so that their faith will not falter/
Track Name: Live It Up
12. Live It Up - Feat. Theory Hazit

If your rap falls off the track then just pick it up/ beat sounds incomplete then just fix it up/
The crowd yells out for more then just rip it up/ only in this game for cash then just give it up/

Got a little something to say so yall listen up/ I know yall want to sit down but yall getting up/
Like this beat from Dert watch me flip it up/ this music comes from the south but I’m a ship it up/
Northwest Pacific, PDX to list it/ Hip Hop IS Music get a clue before you miss it/
You gotta hear this label roster full of gifted men/ my team shine with energy that’s unlimited/
Your heart is narrow, but we can try to fit this in/ a pre-composed revolution is what you’re witnessing/
Cuz Sivion will never ask you to follow whims/ let the blind lead the blind and I’ll just call my friends/
At 5 o’clock on the dot so I can talk with them/ Sintax, Fred B, Billy Blanc and them/
See them on the stage with mics I know you’re watching them/ K IV make sure to mix this right so we can lock it in/

If your rap falls off the track then just pick it up/ beat sounds incomplete then just fix it up/
If the crowd yells out for more then just rip it up/ only in this game for cash then just give it up/
If your rap falls off the track then just pick it up/ beat sounds incomplete then just fix it up/
If the crowd yells out for more then just rip it up/ Love what this life can give then just live it up/

Real gangstas don't rap/ya just another fan wit' too much time on ya hands/
I cock back and aim at the lame, prayin' they change/ aint a thing been done under the sun the same/
Shame on a knocka/ I used to love her 'til these shot clockaz came in the game wit' all these colorful names/
I'm so and so, I'm this I'm that/ I'm 'bout dope as Pookie smokin' on crack-lookin'/
You'll lose respect quicker than Barry Bonds/ if you're the bomb, I'm the one who set you off in Vietnam/
So homie, keep calm stay local, practice ya rhymes/you act as if rap is your life, I laugh 'cuz you lack the Divine/
Ayo Chuck, man, they blind to the facts/ lyin' on wax, take a deep breath try to relax/
Cuz most of yall ain't ever experience pain/ the internet make yall feel like yall can spit anything but naw/

If your rap falls off the track then just pick it up/ beat sounds incomplete then just fix it up/
If the crowd yells out for more then just rip it up/ only in this game for cash then just give it up/
If your rap falls off the track then just pick it up/ beat sounds incomplete then just fix it up/

Give it your all and never fall for deception/ look both ways before you cross the intersection/
Listen up cuz you’re the perfect student for this lesson/ watch me conduct a hip hop music resurrection/
Revive the funk and put the soul back in the trunk/ you can share your thoughts but I’m not hearing what you thunk/
If you claim to be a Baller you should stick to slam dunks/ I heard you do your little rap songs, man they stunk/
You desecrate the stage while you try to get crunk/ so much filth in your set man that’s why your ship sunk/
Can’t handle the weight of your garbage and ice junk/ yeah you look nice but stink like a high price skunk/
You think you’re real sexy like a hip hop hunk/ but your music’s real empty so you flip flop flunk/
When it comes to giving people what they need before their wants/ I commit to serving emcees their whole lunch/

If your rap falls off the track then just pick it up/ beat sounds incomplete then just fix it up/
If the crowd yells out for more then just rip it up/ only in this game for cash then just give it up/
If your rap falls off the track then just pick it up/ beat sounds incomplete then just fix it up/
If the crowd yells out for more then just rip it up/ Love what this life can give then just live it up/
Track Name: Caterpillar Dream
13. Caterpillar Dream

Yeah it’s just me/ out here doing my thing trying hard to let it be/
Yearning for the freedom in this future I see/ a pair of wings help me journey to the top of these trees/
But for now I’m on the ground getting down with these fleas/ trying to help these ants fight the grasshoppers and bees/
We know mosquitoes be spreading disease/ breathe slow cuz these folks be making you sneeze/
Please I’m trying to embrace the fall breeze/ flirt with these blades of grass to help ease/
My mind check for signs and wait for my time/ miss my date for change that would surely be a crime/
Stay on the grind I do the wave when I climb/ head full of faith I was made for the divine/
Try to keep my priorities in line/ cuz when I’m finished with it, you’ll see this inch-worm shine/

You’re just a caterpillar dream / I’m doing butterfly things/
I’m just trying to get some wings/ you can find me doing butterfly things/

It’s just a butterfly thing/ I’m just trying to get some wings/
It’s just a butterfly thing/ things ain’t always what they seem/
It’s just a butterfly thing/ I’m just trying to get some wings/
It’s just a butterfly thing/ man I can’t wait for the spring/

Yeah cuz I’m just trying to keep it clean/ even though life ain’t always what it seems/
In the winter time still find sun beams/ melting the snow cuz the cold’s still seasonal/
Got some lofty goals still feasible/ trying to touch this world but still regional/
Need a cocoon to get these wings you know/ in this situation gotta leave to grow/
Say good bye to this life as I know it/put my faith in action step out so I can show it/
God will complete this transformation why blow it/ when He’s done everyone will know that I glow with/
The brilliance of the Most High in every single color/ embroidered on my wings unique like no other/
Skip through the sky like a sunshine stutter/ pulling all my earth-bound brothers out the gutter/

You’re just a caterpillar dream / I’m doing butterfly things/
I’m just trying to get some wings/ you can find me doing butterfly things/

It’s just a butterfly thing/ I’m just trying to get some wings/
It’s just a butterfly thing/ things ain’t always what they seem/
It’s just a butterfly thing/ I’m just trying to get some wings/
It’s just a butterfly thing/ man I can’t wait for the spring/
Track Name: Songbird Saturday
14. Songbird Saturday

Wake up early cuz it’s Saturday/ got a lot of rest so I’m “A - OK”/
My son’s bugging me cuz he wants to play/ five more minutes that’s what I say/
So he pokes on my head to get me out of bed/ wake up daddy no more sleepy head/
Let’s play tag team rap instead/ then later you can take me to Uncle Fred’s/
OK let’s get cleaned up and fresh/ brush your teeth quick shower then dress/
In the best thrift shirts prefer nothing less/ put on our Chuck Taylor’s so we pass the test/
Proceed to the kitchen so we can get fed/ a little scrambled eggs and some toasted bread/
Put your plate in the sink son you heard what I said/ we’re on a rap mission like Special Ed/

It’s just another Saturday/

Try to wake Shannan by nudging her/ she sleeps like a rock ain’t no budging her/
We even tried pushing and shoving her/ it’s OK she’s mom we’re still loving her/
Now we’re on our way down to Ashtyn’s room/ figure that she’s probably gonna wake up soon/
We peek through the door to catch a quick view/ she’s standing at the foot of the crib holding a shoe/
Take her for a ride on the potty train/ clap her hands silly when we play a game/
She gets a little giggle when I call her name/ then takes off just as fast as she came/
That little bitty bugger’s got some wheels no doubt/ run around in circles like she’s chasing a mouse/
Then tries to climb up on top of the couch/ gobble, gobble, gobble coming out of her mouth/
Yeah I’m real proud of this itty bitty girl/ she’s a really big part of my itty bitty world/
Her mother does her hair in some itty bitty curls/ you can see my daughter dance with an itty bitty twirl/
Never really know what she’s gonna say next/ likes to draw circles over any stray text/
Everyday I pray that my God will stretch/ the path of my fatherhood and call it blessed/

It’s just another Saturday/

Mama’s awake what a great concept/ hope she feels good from a great night’s rest/
She can watch Ashtyn so we can jet/ don’t worry cuz she’s already been changed and fed/
She has my heart and she knows this/ I married her so we could grow this/
Have love for her in big doses/ with a smile and a hug we rub noses/
So close this door me and my son hit the road once more/ stepping real cool with our Chuck Taylor’s/
Walking down Songbird Drive for sure/ Forney, Texas see Fred at his door/
We’re like a rap duo that went on tour/ like to write raps that get down to the core/
My 7 year-old’s been free-styling since four/ already released let’s record one more….more…more/

It’s just another Saturday/
Track Name: So Perfect
15. So Perfect

Yeah you think you’re so special/ you’re so complete now/
Nah listen I got seven ways to love you/

You can find me on a park bench cooling while I spark this/ pulling from the heart shining art on this darkness/
Never can depart this feeling from the farthest/ regions of my being blast off like a starship/
Take over this market stained on the carpet/ media and radio is locked on the target/
It’s like we gave up before we started/
Farming out the best of this art from the rest/ of the part time fakers that are beating it to death/
With this pop culture mess they’re claiming to invest/ in the best interest of this music it’s a test/
That we all fail too many brothers in jail/ living a lifestyle that won’t even cover the bail/
How many times must I hear this tale/
I wanna sail on the open sea search cuz I’m hoping we/ find a better option so I’m hoping for it openly/
Look at what you’re showing me knowing me/ I would rather feed off the music when it’s free enough to glow in me/
Low and behold let these fruits unfold/ and look back to the seeds that perfect the mold/
Yeah you could have been so special/

You’re so perfect/ you’re so complete now/
Yeah you think you’re so perfect/ you’re so complete now/
Yeah you say you’re so perfect/ you’re so complete now/
Nah listen I got seven ways to love you/

You need to think about what you say before you spit your raps out/ fighting with the track like blacks picking their naps out/
Living big on someone else’s trash like a fat mouse/ knocking the wrong door like selling brownies at a crack house/
At first you got into it for the art but then you backed out/ tip-toed around it indecisive like you had doubts/
As if not making money make you pass out/
There’s something wrong with this just let me tell you that now/ there’s more to this life than how your paper stacks out/
This journey is a free gift if you act now/ take a little love and respect then give it back now/
You gotta break loose from the shackles of this cash cow/ turn to the light of His grace don’t be the last out/
Just embrace the Son of God man that’s how/
So many things to talk about with this art now/ like sunshine on the moon when it’s dark out/
The vastness of outer space because it’s far out/ it’s like diamonds in the sky when the stars out/
Like a healthy rain forest in the far south/ we can save this rap music if we start now/
Get approved get the keys drive the car out/
Now that your in the driver’s seat look around you/ the blue sky and the trees that surround you/
Let the cool summer breeze blow about you/ and let the wonders of this life flow throughout you/
To put you in your proper place like a noun do/ yeah it’s been a long search glad I found you/
Yeah you could have been so special/

You’re so perfect/ you’re so complete now/
Yeah you think you’re so perfect/ you’re so complete now/
Yeah you say you’re so perfect/ you’re so complete now/
Nah listen I got seven ways to love you/
Track Name: Hip Hop IS Music
16. Hip Hop IS Music

Life is a drag without art or some music/ store it in my heart cuz I know I won’t lose it/
You gotta make a choice before you choose it/ you gotta make some noise before you use it/
That’s how you see me get right down to it/ come to the barrier and bust right through it/
See me blow bubbles in this rap like fluid/ any dope beat I give daps then pursue it/
I don’t hesitate I just do it/ don’t discriminate whether vet or a new kid/
Any dope beat I’m gonna bless with a blue chip/ performance while I’m warming up the corner where your crew sit/
Swearing that they do this music some justice/ give them benefit in a doubt I don’t rush this I love this/
It takes a little time to craft your art/ you gotta open up your mind to tap your heart/

If you’re walking down the street and you’re not complete grab your headphones and feel this beat stomp your feet and say/
Hip Hop IS Music/ Hip Hop IS Music
If you’re sitting on a bus and everybody’s a fuss/ grab your headphones and let this beat shake the dust and say/
Hip Hop IS Music/ Hip Hop IS Music
If you’re flying in a plane and you’re feeling mundane/ grab your headphones and let this beat heal your brain and say/
Hip Hop IS Music/ Hip Hop IS Music
If you’re steady at work and your boss is a jerk/ grab your headphones and let this beat rock the earth and say/
Hip Hop IS Music/ Hip Hop IS Music
