Track Name: I'm Still Here (Intro)
My artistic output thus far when I'm really fucking honest with myself
Has been fucking fraudulent
And now for the first time I'm doing something that is
Whether you like it or not
It really represents me

And maybe that's fucking stupid to want to be represented to care
I don't care, it's not that
but, I don't want to be..
You know think what you want about me
Hate me or like me
Just don't misunderstand me
That's it.

You know all you can do is do something for yourself
Believe in it, love it, and then put it out there in the world
And hope that people like it, love it
Track Name: Who Am I (In The Mirror) (feat. Numerous and Stacey Dee)
V1:
Does it all work out or fade away and dissipate
I don’t ever question fate but I wont sit and wait
Gotta take which is mine like a course served prime
And If I don’t deserve it I will walk another line

If I’m misunderstood it’s fine I keep on livin'
Every truth that I’m givin is enough for convincing
Standin strong by my convictions until my plot thickens
It is what is only I only hope that they listen

CH:
Who am I in the mirror
Pieces of the past make the image clearer
I really wonder who am I in the mirror
My present makes my past seem a little weirder

Who am I in the mirror
I stand strong softly I hear her
I really wonder who am I in the mirror
I was so damn confused until fate made it clearer


V2:
Slowly my pace pleadin my case wishin the past you could erase
Look at my face and how it relates to currently placed eriosions of fate
I’m hopin the late emotions make people’s brains open to change
Switchin the lanes droppin the games reversin effects of all the pain

Light projection fight misdirection gotta be testin true to the lesson
Questions I’m askin lyrics I’m blastin uncover the faces walls are maskin
Open my soul directions I flow those who don’t try they might never know
Reject me once I try again reject me twice I’m just a man


Perfectness don’t exist it really aint my business
To shelter my existence from the human condition
got some holes in my soul the demons like steal it
But when the goddess comes I’ll along be ready to refill it


I am who I am and I was who I was
And I changed my reflection and I did it just because
It was either fight or flight eiher liberty or death
So my evolution continues til my days last breath

my evolution continues til my days last breath (x4)

CH:
Who am I in the mirror
Pieces of the past make the image clearer
I really wonder who am I in the mirror
My present makes my past seem a little weirder

Who am I in the mirror
I stand strong softly I hear her
I really wonder who am I in the mirror
I was so damn confused until fate made it clearer (x2)

Outro:
Myself I’ve forgiven
I do what I can
Track Name: My Darling (feat. Complex and Kobrah)
V1:
Too many problems to understand
Equal to apologies, she counted on one hand
Love lost never found, buried in the ground
Shackled to attachment, chains to which I'm bound
It's like a nightmare, Night terror Waking up in a sweat
Dreaming that you're next to me I wake up and I check
Nope

Just another hopeful delusion my mind's always playing tricks with such a perfect execution
But one of these walls has to give
I can't live my life in a box forever rid of my longterm long lost love I once had
A bushel of good apples and one had to turn bad like shit
Man I think this plane is going down
I'm no pro in aviation but the pilot ain't around and defiance is the sound
Ringing so clear
Swear to god the audio is flossing through both ears

Now these times are dark out in the cold counting souls simply searching for a spark
Hand me that little lighter ignite up a broken heart
Sitting here thinking we shoulda done it from the start


CH:
Lyrical translation:
Gesi bağlarında dolanıyorum
> i'm wandering in Gesi Vineyards,
Yitirdim yarimi
> I've lost my lover,
Aman aranıyorum
> Oh i seek.

V2:

Thinkin you won't go was a poor premise
Now I'm seeking what long ago has been forfeited
Used to give me your heart with bows with a corsette twist
Now all I get is a harsh hello and hordes tension
But you won't take my apology if the Lord said it
Truth I can't remember how long ago that remorse was pitted
It's only fightin' of what's s'posed to be cordial visits
Yet I'm in here yelling "Geronimo" as I forward flip in

And still you find a hole in all my defense
She was capitalizing on my one moment of weakness
We fight, exchange words you started goin on B fits While I'm sittin thinkin' you'll come home and we'll tweak this
Three years...it's like all the goodness came and it just went
If I got it all back then I wouldn't trade it for nothin'
I'll never get to show love that I could have blanketed us in
Damn...I shoulda been more of the things I wasn't

CH:
(repeat)
Track Name: MapQuest
V1:
What is death?
Nothing more than our perception of reality just coming down to an end
Which brings forth
A brand new meaning
A brand new beginning
No more dread, no more sinning

No more getting wasted, no more charlie sheen "winning"
Just livin' in a different state
Cause we're all energy at end of the day
And most people can't believe that

CH:
Now best believe,
We're supposed to fly
Now fly to heavens
Supposed to fly to the heavens
We're supposed to fly to heavens
Now best believe,
We're supposed to fly
Now fly to heavens (x3)

V2:
You do not have to believe in a higher power
It shapes your reality regardless of how you feel
Now life is an extreme and everyday we bring forth new ways of trying to survive
The human experience is a conscious one
Seems like we're losing our way down the road
Freedom is not free
Now we're being taken for granted and this life is being taken for granted

CH:
(repeat)
Track Name: Sitting, Waiting, Wishing (Remix)
V1:
Sitting here waiting for the world to change
Understand I've never been limp in the brain
Well aware in a great mind state
I hope you feel the truth and see the signs

CH:
Now I was sitting waiting wishing
That you believed in superstitions
Then maybe you'd see the signs (the signs)
But Lord knows that this world is cruel
And I ain't the Lord, no I'm just a fool
Learn to love someone, don't make them love you

Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?

V2:
I was waiting on you to see me
What I have to bring
I believe in one thing
Change minds and lets do it together
Hand in hand
Just relax and follow me

All I want is the take you out
Show you the world in a different light
A different type of cool
The other side of the pillow swag

Clean from the hat to the tippy toes
I don't know much but this is what I do know
I know when I see somethin I want , Imma go for it

And bring folks with me
Change it slow but get to few and plenty
Let em rise and tell em to get ready to rock the world
MJ told me so
Black or white
Let's write

CH:
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?
Must I always be playing playing your fool?


V2:
Now I see them for what they truly can be
Some downright thieves
You can do it to if you just believe
I seek knowledge and knowledge is keep
Wait Hold up
Do you hear that?
That's the voice of reason peeking through
Telling you whats logical
Keep it clean

Merlin and his magic couldn't have this on a habit
Bring it back like rewind on the track list
Spoken true poetry
This is nothing new to me
I know what I believe and G.O.D is what we all need
And that's the truth
And that's the truth
Yeah

CH:
I was sitting waiting wishing
That you believed in superstitions
Then maybe you'd see the signs (x2)

Wait a minute
Sitting waiting
