Track Name: Failure
Starting in the background
Moving to the forefront
Kind of want the spotlight
My life cant wait, cant wait

Met with competition
Vying for the same role
But they don’t know the roads
Ive had to break and change

Waiting in the shadows
Until you hear the hook hit
Now you got some changes
All you want is your way

Im so sick of all these unnecessary rivals
Hollering the roles out
My catalog is all my own

I know Failure is all that you see
But I'm no Failure, You just don't get me
and I write alone to make my art, so play your part or stop
Don't try to right me.


Passing on the whole thing ?
Now I can hear the bell ring
You don’t need to stick around
Holding ropes around my head

All the implications
Are Frying out my brain cells
Lose the attitude or carry on alone

I know Failure is all that you see
But I'm no Failure, You just don't get me
and I write alone to make my art, so play your part or stop
Don't try to spite me.

Ah, Need I say more?
Ah, Need I say more to you?


I know Failure is all that you see
But I'm no Failure, You just don't get me
and I write alone to make my art, it comes straight from soul and heart
so play your part or stop
Don't try to fight me.
Track Name: Ready Ain't Ready
Its Funny how the road is calling me now
Not to go far, but to aim for the south
Get my ass up
Shake off the haze
Cross out my woes
And back out my driveway

So I got myself together and I got off the couch
No more Tv Shows cause im all re-run out
Give my eyes something that they haven’t seen
The world is not amazing, if you keep on watching through the screen

I don’t want steady
I wanna move around
But ready aint ready if you’re always lying down
I don’t want steady, so im getting ready to go

Cases in the back
As I make up the course
they said it can’t be done
“Code” for no more remorse

Now You Can’t think of life without a cell phone
But we were not meant to live in just one time zone

So, define your mind by the songs you’ve heard
Prepare yourself for your final words
The rest of your life
Is out of your hands
But before you die
Go ahead and be “The Living Man”

I don’t want steady
I wanna move around
But ready aint ready if youre always lying down
I don’t want steady, so im getting ready to go
Track Name: The Brighter Days
You wish to be someone who lives a life in love
Not dwell on things your not, and accept the things you got
Ive seen a lot of days
Ive seen a lot of days

Im now wise to waves
They build then start to cave
But don’t be on the fence, you’ll find light in patience

Ive seen the brighter days
Ive seen the brighter days
But ive seen them fly away
To get light; you let go and wait

You want to be someone who conquers what they hunt
Who lets their actions speak, and who gets what all they seek
Ive seen a lot of days
Ive seen a lot of days

Ive held the face of fear
It stood in my own mirror
But when I saw the spark, I got out the dark

Ive seen the brighter days
Ive seen the brighter days
But ive seen them fly away
To get light; you step up and take

Wasting all this time to chose a side
When both seem so damn sure that they are right
Can balance be the way, I’ll find the brighter days
Then Ill decide to take and to wait.


Ive seen the brighter days
Ive seen the brighter days
But ive seen them fly away
To get light; you let go but take
Track Name: It Don't Matter
Starring at the same old picture
A younger boy now older, and I still wonder who I am
Reading words from my old scripture
Takes me back to when I felt a hunger to be a man

It don’t Matter where I go
It don’t matter who I know
Ive been thinking im too damn old
Im looking over my time, im going out of my mind and it shows
It don’t Matter where I go
It don’t matter who I know
They all say that I am Still young
You can do what you love, and be proud of what you’ve done

I got one side that feels determination
The world is mine and I will show everyone who I can be
But that other side concedes to termination
I got no time and I have not seized one opportunity

It don’t Matter where I go
It don’t matter who I know
Ive been thinking im too damn old
Im looking over my time, im going out of my mind and it shows
It don’t Matter where I go
It don’t matter who I know
They all say that I am Still young
You can do what you love, and be proud of what you’ve done

All this time don’t teach the man to understand the man from who I am, and what ive become
So the act and tact of getting back on track or giving up on every dream I had, and all that I’ve done

It don’t Matter where I go
It don’t matter who I know
Ive been thinking im too damn old
Im looking over my time, im going out of my mind and it shows
It don’t Matter where I go
It don’t matter who I know
They all say that I am Still young
You can do what you love, and be proud of what you’ve done
Track Name: Want It
She comes alive at the end of the night
Two bottles down, of her favorite red wine
She’ll come over, start knocking down my door
Said “boy, you better let me in, cause tonight im gonna start a war”

She want it in the morning
Right when youre barely awake
She want it in the evening
Just before you go off to sleep
She want it in the morning
Just before you go to brush your teeth
She want it in the evening
Right before the sun rises and starts the day

She’ll wake me up riding on top of my world
Handcuffs and likes it rough, and says shes been a dirty girl
You can hear her scream when the sun rises at six
Its resonating through all the walls and she wont stop until she gets her fix

She want it in the morning
Right when youre barely awake
She want it in the evening
Just before you go off to sleep
She want it in the morning
Just before you go to brush your teeth
She want it in the evening
Right before the sun rises and starts the day

She takes a knee and says “how bout a little more?”
I look her down and say “I don’t have much more then four”
She says “Watch me try cause I’ll make you feel alive”
So I took a pill, and started working on number five

She want it in the morning
Right when youre barely awake
She want it in the evening
Just before you go off to sleep
She want it in the morning
Just before you go to brush your teeth
She want it in the evening
Right before the sun rises and starts the day
