Hailing from Columbia, South Carolina, the reggae-rock group The Movement was formed in 2004 by a trio of Sublime and Pixies fans.

BLINDED

 

Blinded by the sun

You cannot see and so you stumble when you run

Blinded by the night

Your delusion and confusion keeps you fleeing from the light

Blinded by your greed

You crave possessions when true love is what you need

The writing's on the wall

You gotta read it and believe it or you'll fall

 

It's all about that clean mind state

You keep running further and further away

And you're still hungry after you eat

You're bringing about your own defeat

So when you need me you just call

I'll be there to catch you when you fall

You cannot nod off inside their lies

Together we'll open up our eyes

Don't be…

 

Blinded by the sun

You cannot see and so you stumble when you run

Blinded by the night

Your delusion and confusion keeps you fleeing from the light

Blinded by your greed

You crave possessions when true love is what you need

The writing's on the wall

You gotta read it and believe it or you'll fall

 

It's all about that conscious choice

Cause how can you scream without a voice

When the words that matter, they get denied

And strength comes only from deep inside

And when you need me I'll be there

To show you the way out when no one dares

To give you a light to find your way

And guide you with sight to a better day

Don't be…

 

Blinded by the sun

You cannot see and so you stumble when you run

Blinded by the night

Your delusion and confusion keeps you fleeing from the light

Blinded by your greed

You crave possessions when true love is what you need

The writing's on the wall

You gotta read it and believe it or you'll fall

 

This should be misery, literally this is their thesis

You can find positive vibes but through telekinesis

If you're righteous then you will find the rest of Earth lies in pieces

Making way in the world for the wicked through cries and appeasements

You will battle for happiness over and over again

Crawling uphill is a struggle for millions of men

But if you try then you’ll find you get closer and closer again

Then you can share wisdom with those who are willing to stand

 

Battle for happiness over and over again…


DANCEHALL (feat. Mr. Williamz)

 

I've seen the sun slip behind the sea

The stars stretching out to eternity

But baby, they just can't compare

To what you mean- What you mean to me

So I'll wait- I'll wait for you

At the dancehall

 

Yes I’ll wait- You know I’ll wait for you

At the dancehall

 

Staring up at the palm leaves

Salt breeze blowin- never felt so free

Me and you- yeah we were the only two

Out on the beach, and out of reach

 

Remember when we heard our song

I swear I could have held you all night long

I thought loving you could never be wrong

But now you're gone
Now you're gone

 

And I'll wait- I'll wait for you

At the dancehall

Yes I’ll wait- You know I’ll wait for you

At the dancehall

 

I say now how can I stop when you keep on keepin me going

You just cut off the current when I need it to be flowing

With every part of me aching- my heart is taking me over

And my head- It keeps spinning like I could never be sober

Cause there's another side of you that I can never ignore

You say you're leaving me baby- I say I'm missing you more

And I would never hurt you, burn you, cut you down to the core

But you got one foot on my heart and got one foot out of the door

Still I'll wait- I'll wait for you

At the dancehall

Still I'll wait- you know I'll wait for you

At the dancehall


GOLDEN (feat. Elliot Martin)

 

Frost say nothing gold can stay

I guess you can't measure how much a soul can weigh

And I'll never let this love unfold and fray

So my heart will stay golden after I'm old and grey

Frost say Eden- ya know it sank to grief

Don't mean to offend you but it's not my belief

Wanna scream to the world- there's only hope and peace

When you have a gold heart and give away the gold leaf

 

Frost say nature's first green is gold

But depending on whether the prior scene is told, it's a cycle

Forever infinity remolds the heavens

Relax and let the dream unfold

 

And why is it so hard for us to see

I'm thinking maybe we’re all just in such a rush to be somebody

But first ya know we must be free

And in time you will say- first I must be me…

 

Frost say nothing gold can stay

I guess you can't measure how much a soul can weigh

And I'll never let this love unfold and fray

So my heart will stay golden after I'm old and grey

Frost say Eden- ya know it sank to grief

Don't mean to offend you but it's not my belief

Wanna scream to the world- there's only hope and peace

When you have a gold heart and give away the gold leaf

 

Blessed be the water

New wave we honor

Lessons we a keep know gratitude we shout out

Live for each day inside its golden hour

Can't hold it in just give it away

            

Why frightened men keep fighting always?

Big world asleep but it turning

But the love will increase it no worry

Anywhere we grow the gold seed it returning

Ours is a story that begins today

Who with the power don't forget the grace

 

Blessed be the water

New wave we honor

Lessons we a keep know gratitude we shout out

We'll be together then

We all recover

Can't keep it in just give it away

 

Frost say nothing gold can stay

I guess you can't measure how much a soul can weigh

And I'll never let this love unfold and fray

So my heart will stay golden after I'm old and grey

Frost say Eden- ya know it sank to grief

Don't mean to offend you but it's not my belief

Wanna scream to the world- there's only hope and peace

When you have a gold heart and give away the gold leaf


FAIR WARNING

 

Why do they try to put their reasoning aside

I look, they're teetering on pride- they get the heater and they hide

They sneak a little piece of life then hole up, obey, and abide

When all the Universe, it tries to get you reeling- get you right

 

Some people- they act like they don't know

Ignorant man backlines the whole show

Always looking for snack time, you won't grow

Never loosen the slack, I grab hold

 

This life and this music is just a part of me

We don't try to refuse it- it is not hard to see

Never gonna abuse it- I got a fair warning

So now I live my life to spread love

 

This life and this music is just a part of me

We don't try to refuse it- it is not hard to see

Never gonna abuse it- I got a fair warning

So now I live my life to spread love

 

I see the sun as always burning, always one

It never lets me down- it teaches me where to reach and where to run

So when life gets you down and people start to preach- the weight's a ton

Well girl now you know just where you can come for fun

 

We see the light as it is piercing through this dark and evil cloud

We hear the screaming of the system so we keep the music loud

We look for truth and beauty rising from the crowd

Father you must be proud

Mother you held it down

 

This life and this music is just a part of me

We don't try to refuse it- it is not hard to see

Never gonna abuse it- I got a fair warning

So now I live my life to spread love

SMOKE

 

She likes to smoke, she loves to burn

Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns

She likes the weed, she loves the herb

And ya know I need her more with every word

 

She likes to smoke, she loves to burn

Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns

She likes the weed, she loves the herb

And ya know I need her more with every word

 

My first words were you're gorgeous

You caught my eye- I think you did it on purpose

I'd never give you lip service

I'd speak the truth even if you never heard this

Cause when I look at you I see the sun shining so bright

I wanna be with you the morning through and every night

 

She likes to smoke, she loves to burn

Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns

She likes the weed, she loves the herb

And ya know I need her more with every word

She likes to smoke, she loves to burn

 

Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns

She likes the weed, she loves the herb

And ya know I need her more with every word

 

She sends me pictures in the bathtub smokin

I wanna jump right in- the thought is so provoking

She's on the beach surfin and tokin

I think she loves the trees more than she loves the ocean

She'd put aside all the other little boys for me

But when it comes to the ganja I just can't compete

 

She likes to smoke, she loves to burn

Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns

She likes the weed, she loves the herb

And ya know I need her more with every word

 

She likes to smoke, she loves to burn

Ya know she has to get it everywhere she turns

She likes the weed, she loves the herb

And ya know I need her more with every word


RESCUE

 

I was looking for a way to spread my wings

I was looking to lift my soul

I was looking for a way to escape material things

I was looking to lose control

 

And music, it was there for me

My brothers, they were there for me

And this is what they said

 

Well ya gotta move fast, make the moment last

Always keep it humble even when the feelin passes

When you hear the thunder rumble and your foot is on the gas

Take a second to be grateful, look up in the sky and ask

For a lesson yeah this life is such a blessing

If you're guessing, look around and know you are blessed too

We've come together to see light in any weather

We're forever

We have come to your rescue

 

I was looking for a way to conquer dreams

I was looking for one a day

I was looking for a way to sew up those open seams

I was looking to run away

 

And my family, they were there for me

My friends, they were all there for me

And this is what they said

 

Well ya gotta move fast, make the moment last

Always keep it humble even when the feelin passes

When you hear the thunder rumble and your foot is on the gas

Take a second to be grateful, look up in the sky and ask

For a lesson yeah this life is such a blessing

If you're guessing, look around and know you are blessed too

We've come together to see light in any weather

We're forever

We have come to your rescue

 

I was looking for a way to release my pain

I was looking for some company

I was looking for someone to scream my name

I was looking for someone to be

 

And music, it was there for me

My brothers, they were there for me

And this is what they said

 

Well ya gotta move fast, make the moment last

Always keep it humble even when the feelin passes

When you hear the thunder rumble and your foot is on the gas

Take a second to be grateful, look up in the sky and ask

If you're guessing, look around and know you are blessed too

We've come together to see light in any weather

We're forever

We have come to your rescue


ON TOP (feat. Leilani Wolfgramm)

 

Steamin down the highway I'm a calm meditator

Lyric is my weapon I'm the bomb educator

I divvy up ideas- I'm a spark delegator

Droppin jaws to the floor like a shark elevator

 

While ya swimmin in another's sea I'm currently me

Ya payin for yesterday- I say weren't we free

I got nothin but love for a sweet reverie

That's why I gather my party up in a neat repartee

 

Did ya think I fell off- Nah

I been at the finish line waitin for y'all to catch up

I said I'm on top but still I don't stop

I said I already won but still I'm not done

 

Nibblin on aural nipples to titillate all the masses

Watchin women in painted jeans shake masterpiece asses

She needin to study and so she stays up and passes

If you see that I'm a spectacle then raise up ya glasses

 

Profligate professor- no waste for my successor

Success- tip of my tongue- a taste for every pleasure

No bath in my buillons but I baste in buried treasure

I lace my lap of leisure with haste in every measure

 

Pickin up pieces pardon the prime alliteration

Apparently people notice and perk with participation

But life is a puzzle- put it together with pride

And you'll probably find purpose if you put your ego aside

 

I move around a lot- I stop to spit a little

The middle is an enigma- I shop to get a riddle

Not privy to wiggle- baby I sing maybe to get all

Excited from aural pleasure like hearing a baby giggle

 

Did ya think I fell off- Nah

I been at the finish line waitin for y'all to catch up

I said I'm on top but still I don't stop

I said I already won but still I'm not done

 

I hate to see my people like a flower with the root gone

Drenched like they took a shower with their suit on

Benched- sit or you sleep- life ain't a futon

Time to strap ya boots on

Hike a million miles a week to get ya move on

Party like it won't ever peak to get ya groove on

Wig out with ya locks or be sleek and rock a buffon

Doesn't really matter- just be- and get ya truth on

Dready speak the truth mon

 

Did ya think I fell off- Nah

I been at the finish line waitin for y'all to catch up

I said I'm on top but still I don't stop

I said I already won but still I'm not done


HOME

 

I want my baby to come home

I want my baby to come home

She knows she'll never be alone

She's never gonna be alone

 

She gives me lovin in the daytime

She gives me lovin in the night time too

She gives me lovin in the mornin

She gives me lovin in the evening time too

 

She tells me everything is just right

She tells me everything is gonna be just fine

She whispers nothing will come between us

She says she'll love me till the end of time

 

I want my baby to come home

I want to bring my baby home

She knows she'll never be alone

She's never gonna be alone


THROUGH THE HEART

 

Pick up the pen like I'm pickin up the world

When I put it to the paper you can see the colors swirlin

I got an army- alphabet of fire burnin

Lyric of liquid nickel- keep this world turnin

 

I see the Earth as part of me, so to be this free and easy

The Movement plants a tree- sows the seed just where the seed need be

The Universe is callin sayin that it needs me

You get hungry- I just let this music feed me

 

So I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon

So many times I wanna stay but I gotta travel on
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon

 

Side by side we unite so we see the masses move men

Been a million miles- you can see just where this truth's been

You start a riot when you see The Movement provin

To the people that we are the heavy- see the roof bend

See another side of life- try my strife but release the knife

Constantly pressured to be the best- Joshua please be my light

Baby I'm tryin, if only you could just see my plight

Then we would never have had to try to survive this fight

 

So I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon

So many times I wanna stay but I gotta travel on
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon

So many times I wanna stay but I gotta travel on
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon

 

So I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon

So many times I wanna stay but I gotta travel on
I take my pen and stab it thru the heart of Babylon

 


RETRIEVER

 

Spit out my drink on the shelf

Think to myself

What is left

Is there anything else

Hang up my belt

How I felt doesn't matter

I melt

I'm wet batter

I'm sweltering hot

But I'm not what I thought

The plot thickens then rots

Not the pick of the lot

Flick at my watch

Ticking them off like seconds

And then I cough

The trough of liquor down in my belly

Smelly with sauce

I'm jealous with thoughts

Awkward, I tell us aloft

Baby I'm trying to be good

Maybe I'm tying my hood tighter

A fighter flicking my lighter at petrified wood

Maybe I'm misunderstood

Burning and pissing in soot

Lazy but kicking my foot

Skating on thin ice and mud

Debating to weather the flood

Hating

No better than God wasting a litter of dogs

I bite them then spit and applaud

Writing a letter of fraud

To my mom, my sister then long gone

I'm wrong

I don't belong to this planet I'm on

 

God it's just so easy to point my finger and leave

But don't let this place get the best of me

Cause it's just

I've got one thing I need to retrieve

Don't let this place get the best of me

 

Now I'm in a spot I've never known

I thought I was grown

Thought I just guessed I could hold my own

So I left me alone

Started to sleep on my throne

Home is a drink and a cone

Can't even think and atone

Won't even blink at the phone

Sorry I have to be here

Couldn't just pass up the fear

Willing to give it my all to fall and laugh at the tears

Years just passing me by

Bye to my life and my pride

Why do I try

I'll just get high and stifle the fight

If I could take back what drove me mad

I wouldn't take back the bad

The greatest times that I had went with them

And even that alone is enough

Stuff the shit up inside

Puff then poof

It goes away like vision at night

Pardon me I'd give my right nut

To cut some of these scenes from this bloody debut

Strut then run at my dreams

Seems my dreams are all I need

 

God it's just so easy to point my finger and leave

But don't let this place get the best of me

Cause it's just

I've got one thing I need to retrieve

Don't let this place get the best of me

 

God it's just so easy to point my finger and leave

But don't let this place get the best of me

Cause it's just

I've got one thing I need to retrieve

Don't let this place get the best of me


HABIT 2016 (feat. Collie Buddz & Bobby Hustle)

 

You know I got a habit

It ain't gonna lead nowhere

Except to the many legions of the people with a problem

But nobody cares

Cause all I do is

Sit and dream about drinking and women and music

It's just gonna

Give me another reason to use and abuse it

But still I gotta

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn down

And so I light it up

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn

And so I light it up

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn down

And so I light it up

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn
 

(Collie Buddz verse)

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn down

And so I light it up

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn

And so I light it up

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn down

And so I light it up

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn

 

I smoked a zip in an afternoon

It’s 5 o’clock I’m tryna smoke all evening too

So weh you wan do, do you have a next link

Cuz I got a habit and it need addressing

You know I wanna hold it

Break it up and roll it

Twist it up and fold it any kinda way

I’m an addict like the ceiling

In need of that healing

If I can’t have it Ima feel some type of way

Cuz when we start smoke we nuh stop smoke

I’m from the west coast riding with the best smoke

You know seh it’s The Movement Collie and the Hustle

In the streets dem see me moving ganja man a hustle

Still you know I got a way of vanishing like the smoke in the sky

I gotta have it to manage the pain like smoke in my eye

Sometimes I light it up just to smoke and get high

Ya I gotta habit man I smoke to get by

 

You know I got a habit and I know I don't have it to give away

If I see it I'm gonna grab it

My mind is a mess and I'm always stressing

And maybe I'll never need this drink atop a tablet

Because I think my eyes are playing tricks on me

I think it's easy to see but I can't believe me

Cause every time she brings a bottle of wine I'm fine

Pass the chalice I know that you'll never leave me

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn down

And so I light it up

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn

And so I light it up

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn down

And so I light it up

 

I live and I learn

All I wanna do is burn


WILD TIME

 

To all my friends up in Philly

And to my family down in Charleston too

For all my faults please forgive me

Didn't mean to be so rude

 

I miss my sister out in Rainbow City

I miss my mom and dad out in Columbia too

I only pray that you believe me

God only knows my words are true

 

My eyes water as I scan the night sky

And I dream of everything that we might do

I fall asleep praying please just let me wake up

I need another day to make it come true

It's been a wild time loving you

 

Hop on a plane out to the west coast

To San Diego to record some tunes

Spend some time out in the salt and the sand

Watch the waves by the light of the moon

 

I thought of you staring at the Grand Canyon

And in the bitter cold out in Niagara Falls too

I only pray that you believe me

God only knows my words are true

 

My eyes water as I scan the night sky

And I dream of everything that we might do

I fall asleep praying please just let me wake up

I need another day to make it come true

It's been a wild time loving you

 

I miss my friends up in Philly

I miss my family down in Charleston too

 

ECHO

 

We walk this ground till the leaves turn brown

And the springtime calls us again

We wobble as the world spins around and around

It reminds us of the spaces we've been

 

We see the new day bring the sun and the moon

And whisper our secrets to the dead

Our voices echo in triumph and doom

Only the spirits will remember what we said

 

And they say "nothing's gonna be the same

Everything is gonna have to change"

But we keep on pushin like a steaming train

Hoping that the fire will remain

 

But I say everyone will know our name

Spoken by the people or the page

And maybe we'll live on in the wind and the rain

To see our children do the same

 

 

 

FREE LAND feat. RAFA

 

When you're runnin round sinking your hole in the ground

Thinkin the role that you found is merely a mole in the mound

Just your little place in the loud empty of space

You're not proud to be the face in the crowd

Lonely, you're making me now

So if you want to be free

You gotta follow the sea

You gotta swallow the me

Swallow the I in the team

You got a right to be mean,

Not so much so that you seem

To be the devil it's green

On the other side so just be

 

Blazin it up

We're burning it down

Bust open me up

You're never turning me down

 

Smokin it up like it's the

Finest chronic on the tree

Make every word that you speak

Make it be heard by the people

So absurd that you think

You cannot live without drinking

And you sit and you scream

Thinkin you're shittin on dreams

But in the reality, you are just cuttin the c.r.a.p

Wipin it clean, kickin and fighting the man

Flying with holes in your hands

Crying "no one understands"

Eyeing the bottles and cans

Trying to bottle the fans,

Music and passion and dance

Up inside you but you can't

Take a break, rave and you rant

Sit in your cave, you're an ant

Know you're a brave elephant

And you can behave when you can

Be not a slave or the man

Will whip you on the way to free land

 

 

 

SIDE BY SIDE

 

The morning always seems like a dream when I wanna wake up

The mist on the river Styx tellin me I gotta pay up

I sell my soul when I sleep man the reaper's really gonna rake up

Cause I'm pushin down the daisies how much time is it gonna take up

 

The day breaks late in the haze still under the moon

Faraway stars callin me to come back to my tomb

Gotta get my mind right set the station to the track of my tune

Bassline thunder in your ceiling now were wreckin your room

 

And now we're side by side preachin the power of sound

And when your mind's ready and right

Just lift your feet off the ground go smoke a blunt in the clouds

 

And now we're side by side preachin the power of sound

And when your mind's ready and right

Just lift your feet off the ground go smoke a blunt in the crowd

 

My life always seems like a dream when I'm sippin my cup

Got my band behind me and you know that we been livin it up

I got my girl behind me and you know I'm always feelin her love

Clouds on the horizon you know I'm lookin down from above

 

 

SWEET LIFE

 

I was just a bad boy

You were just a young good looking girl

I took you to a party

And we listened for a while

Music it was in our hearts

Melody was in our heads

We sank into the ocean

And it made us both smile

 

But we had to grow up, yeah you know we

Put the shore behind us and we

Put the earth between us

And we lived our lives apart

But now that your hand's in mine

The smell of salt is stronger

And the waves they crash louder

Now that I have you in my heart

 

But I don't wanna be loved

If I'm livin this life without you

I would wanna give up

Cause I wouldn't know what to do

And I will never ask much

Cause my wish has already come true

Babe you are the one

The sweet life is coming soon

 

 

 

POPUL VUH

 

Won't be tricked no matter what the popul vuh says

Wont be sick eating magic in the Apache rez

Not no stickman, don't draw me no princess

Keep my eye on another sky

Keep my eye on my brother's life

 

Won't be stunned by the bible recreation

Won't be shunned by no ignorant religion

Won't be won over by written contradiction

Keep my eye on another sky

Keep my eye on my sisters life

 

Reality is too cool, too cool for you

Too cool for school, the books they can't be true

If you like to drool over deities too

I am hunbatz with a tail in Tulum

 

Are you a sesspool for the dripdown from tools

Used to be players in a triptown for fools

Tefuse to be used by your idols and ghouls or

I am hunbatz with a tail in Tulum

 

 

MOONSHINE

 

I got nothing but love for Chully's bassline

I got nothing but love for my herbs

Just give me something that I can believe in

Just give me something to justify my words

 

Just let me have something I can feel and I can see

Wanna hear the music from the mountain and the beach

Keep it goin forever as long as we can reach

The sun and moonshine

Side by side together we be vile but we breathe

Through the chalice and the smile you will see we'll never leave

Cause the peace is in the ganja just as long as we can drink

The sun and moonshine

 

I got nothin but love for Gary's snare drum

I got nothin but love in my cup

Just give me something that I can believe in

Just give me something to justify my love

 

Lovin Cali livin on sun and moonshine

 

I got nothing but love for my gifts from god

I got nothing but love for my band

We know that we've got something to believe in

We got something that we can understand

 

 

 

GIFT

 

I wake up in a beautiful apartment

I got my dog at the foot of my bed

I got no enemies, ain't got no target

This is the fruit of life, the reason to be

And I'm waiting to see how my book is read

 

Turn the page and...

 

I take a sip of the breeze through the screen door

Cigarette smoke, artwork in the air

If you take a moment, just look, it will mean more

This is the fruit of life, the reason to be

And I'm waiting to see if you even care

 

Cause you know that you...

 

You are a gift to the planet

How will you live if you don't even understand it

You are a gift to the world

Be thankful, what you have is just enough

Be thankful for what you have and rise above

 

 

 

 

BE EASY

 

Brian told me sometime long ago that it fades

When you're doing the same thing, pursuing the same dreams

I gotta tell him, yeah I know sometimes this life stings

Too loud your ears ring, too proud these girls scheme

But he knows that, we ain't no bricks in the wall

Shit, we can't laugh no more without the alchohol

 

And then I see my baby with a smile so bright

I can't live this world without her beautiful light

I can't live this world without fightin my fight

But I can't stop my plight so I just dream every night

 

Athena asks me to please pass the rum

I know the future's callin, best is yet to come

My baby asks me to please pass the rum

I know the best is yet to come

 

So please please don't you die on me

The trees these they got roots underneath

Time for everybody to make their own peace

You reap what you sow, so on my knees I'm just like

Ease ease, god be easy today

Got so much more that I've been wantin to say

You knew we'd miss our brothers but you took them away

So I only got time to play, if I only had more time to pray

 

Remember that night on a sacred grave when we played

I've never been the same way, I think my life changed

Then he told me, "give me something I wanna hear,

Make my problems disappear, no fear but a cold beer yo"

I feel ya brian we ain't no bricks in the wall

Shit we can't laugh no more without the alchohol

 

 

ATLAS

 

I got a tripod to hold up my atlas

Got many missions with a map on my door

If you could find a way to pick a path you'd be at this

You'd never need me to search anymore

 

I got a reason to hold up my fists

I got a planet on the top of my shoulders

Always a season for taking a risk

Don't let your world get too much colder

 

When we were young, time stood still

Upon its hill

Play as they may, angels lay and still they will

Getting their fill

 

Will we be the same again

When this all ends

Can you take a step back

And see when time begins

 

 

 

MILE HIGH

 

It's the first day of summer in the mile high

Sun shinin memories they file by

I got my whiskey on my mind, weed pile high

I leave the past behind and then I smile wide

 

I was thinkin bout blinkin for a second I reckon

I was a mess and I was checkin out of my head, 

Learned my lesson

Went to prison on a mission

To stop my people from listenin

To end my job or my life,

I wonder which one was missin

 

I got kicked out of my old house

Spit out of the cold house

Found out that I will kill

Any intruder with a bold mouth

And now I'm sittin chillin with a silent mind

Lookin towards the future, put my troubles behind

 

I was drinkin everyday, that probably made me be crazy

Maybe it gave me all my game but nobody could save me

And still I had to do my job, play a show on the daily

Maybe they hate me cause I left but I'm back now

yeah baby

 

 

 

ANOTHER WOMAN

 

Hey little angel you're my girl

The reason that I'm here baby you're my world

Never gonna be another woman like you

 

You're my little princess you're my queen

I couldn't live without you where would I be

Never gonna be another woman like you

 

The sparkle in your eyes

Men gotta stare get hypnotized

Always gonna be a good man to you

You teach me wrong from right

Love your gorgeous smile love your light

Always gonna be a good man to you

 

When she walks, other men they follow

When she talks, it makes it hard to swallow

 

You tell me that you're mine

When you talk like that it really blows my mind

Always gonna be a good man to you

I love you all the time

Your touch gives me chills straight down my spine

Always gonna be a good man to you

 

My best friend, with benefits you know that never end

You know I always come back

 

 

 

GALAXY

 

I watched you run away and close your eyes like you were just sleeping

And maybe it's true that you dream better when the road's behind you

But I saw you pick apart all them daily truths that could always get to you

I know that you were watching me watching you

 

I heard you shake the dice and bow out like a criminal pissed at the rain

And maybe it's true that you feel better when you can kiss that pain

But I saw in you a galaxy of unspoken things when you looked in the mirror

And I knew that we were looking at the same damn thing

 

So I say

Let me be your guardian light when you walk the night

Let me show you everything I learned when your back was turned

Let me be the tree you lean upon when your feet grow weary

Let us live life everywhere we turn

Cause we say
