2.
(KnowledgeBorn07) so many ups and downs like ocean waves living this life in the land of the free sometimes I feel like a modern day slave sometimes I feel like I gotta get paid stayin upon my hustle with a brand new day focused not to fumble when they try to tackle me pass it to my bredren get em on the same page connecting the dots so the future is paved meditate positive when inspiration fades try to cast out the demons inside of brain maybe we'll unite one day we will change no more poison inside the vampires fangs cause if it gets the best of you you will fade away like dust in the wind an epitaph above your grave please listen before you do it again bless up the youth the youth are your friend bless up the all mighty and blessed is H.I.M. I try to do my part right here in south bend and pay it forward to you like a hand to lend keep your head up high and away from sin your under my wing like you are my kin brothers and sister please stop fightin we can unite the fyah I'm lightin to purify you so stop the violence Chorus (Knowledgeborn07, Johnny Cosmic and Amie Catanzarite) We could win We could lose but If we don't try then we won't have a clue, no What a trip, what a trip baby What a trip life is Love's gonna set me free (Ras Zackary) this worlds movin a little too fast aint even got enough cash to save my ass nor can I afford to buy your korg still till this date zero records sold but it aint bout the money or the gold i'm doin this to satisfy my soul cause i'll grow old and it will be something for my kids to uphold and when i pass this will be the only thing left of me that will last and hopefully they will chant my words as if they were in mass and maybe get these kids outta bed and goin to class, to class you better take your ass back to class cause I never did too busy running with the neighborhood kids but it's not gonna be easy for them a pool of piranhas they'll be swimming in things can go from good to great and bad to worse just depends on which one is happening first Chorus We could win We could lose but If we don't try then we won't have a clue, no What a trip, what a trip baby What a trip life is Love's gonna set me free I'll be free love My baby love, I won't tell you lies
3.
27 miles in the devils shoes feel like I got nothing, nothing left to lose lost my smile my friend and I gained the blue came to the cross roads, which way do I choose Chorus The souls are worn out You can take them back The hearts been torn out And the sky is black But through the darkness I can see there is a ray of light Shining through us, it is the way of life Free from hate and free from war I'll just try to do my own damn thing that's why I'm in this booth that's why I try to sing and I will try to keep that positive path you can like me or you can turn your back Chorus I don't care what other people think I'm gonna try, I'll just try to sing And I'm gonna do it straight from my soul You know, yes yes you know Cause I love, oh yes I love keep your head up high reach for the sky every time (Johnny Cosmic) I saw the light from your eyes wish I could give it back my hearts been torn out and there aint no way to put it back cause love is everything

Chorus (P.Tugz and Johnny Cosmic) Not wasting time Can't spare a dime Trying to shake these dead willow blues The scene from my window Sorrow and sinful What is a man to do? Where do we go? We're gonna find the one Ask all the questions, demand the answers Run till our time has come (KnowledgeBorn07) the populations procrastinatin from tribulation to realization as fascination blinds this nation with visual sensations that act as sedation back to the plantation of the new world order space station for the future enslavement of all unified nations we're just like rats in these cages as they start the inflation on anybody that has no blood relation just ask a mason and a combination of political leaders who meet in private conversation notice I speak without hesitation cause if they come after me I'll dodge em like the matrix Chorus Not wasting time Can't spare a dime Trying to shake these dead willow blues The scene from my window Sorrow and sinful What is a man to do? Where do we go? We're gonna find someone Ask all the questions, demand the answers Run till our time has come (KnowledgeBorn07) how can I communicate relate with the abstract minded I leave you blinded by dimensions that I'm findin with no traces I lace these kids up like braces to walk how I strut and take what I created like the matrix I hold time in the palm of my hand and you take shots at me from hills of distant lands who's the man I want his head chopped and delivered for blasphemin against the most high I send shivers down the spines of these cartoon characters like blizzards to leave em frost bitten and lose their limbs like trees withered you wont see the sun until you stop whining I spent years buildin my castle to hang my art of rhyme in I'll put this flag on top of this mountain so start climbin cause honestly I won't be around for people to find it Chorus Not wasting time Can't spare a dime Trying to shake these dead willow blues The scene from my window Sorrow and sinful What is a man to do? Where do we go? We're gonna find someone Ask all the questions, demand the answers Run till our time has come (Johnny Cosmic) war is over, war is over, war is over that’s what I pray as I clutch this 4 leaved clover the writing on the wall, come closer we’ll tear it down crumble, crumble crash bulldozers hit so hard shake your skull and cross bone at the darkest hour you’ll feel so alone but what you couldn’t see will now be illuminated hope to live to see the day and I’ll use my last breath to say (wish I could say) the war for your mind is over (wish I could say) the war for your life is over (wish I could say) the war for your soul is over (wish I could tell you) (Popa Wu) It's all good though....
5.
(Popa Wu) it's all good though it's all good though it's all good though when you're feeling low when you're down and your out and you feel as though nobody wants you around Chorus (Knowledgeborn07 and Johnny Cosmic) Just know you got me You got me I'll be your shoulder to lean You got me tell me all your problems and ill figure em out please just have some patience before you run out of town Chorus And know you got me You got me I'll be your shoulder to lean You got me don't you ever feel ashamed when you cry cause that's just the bodies way to cleanse your mind Chorus And know you got me You got me I'll be your shoulder to lean You got me I'll be your shoulder to lean You got me

Chorus (Knowledgeborn07 and Johnny Cosmic) Blessed love Blessed is creation Blessed is the most high unto every nation Blessed is every color we must be patient We are just patients in this blessed world we use as a station (Knowledgeborn07) to channel our love you know the one Im speaking of I mean the one known as the unconditional basic nature of this earth ever since the ancients left us passages to guide us on our maps like spaceships nowadays you get confused by dominions and systems sending mixed signals outward like were preachin through a prism not knowing that this is the worst kind of prison settling on our differences the walking dead were not livin everyone seems to cling to destruction promoting violence steadily on the gun clutching like a modern day virus at the same time we seem to be the modern day pirates stealing from the ones we love and not respecting the highest supreme human being the one that is considered divine its like trickery and we ate the apple smiling but what gets to me is that were all from different climates professing the same thing with different names I pray for silence and peace on these streets not little babies cryin or youths trading blood for money like they got a license to kill its not a movie its real life and its tiring i see the fire blazing so much they pray for hydrants to put the fire out but not until the purifyin is over you'll know by the sound of the king lion when the trumpets sound like sirens titans can't fight em cause were all image and likeness no matter what they thought each and every creed defyin Chorus Blessed love Blessed is creation Blessed is the most high unto every nation Blessed is every color we must be patient We are just patients in this blessed world we use as a station (Prince Po) manifestin lessons celestial connections peer pressure bring questions that's answered by the blessings back against the wall haters hoping you fall trying to shit where i eat first we chokin' em all but I rose above the madness acquired knowledge of self shook the ways of a savage now I'm flyin' like a stealth some said I couldn't do it now I'm raps michael phelps in the image of God repeating the cycle with finesse it's the little things that paint a bigger picture I've seen the world and I'm from Queens and that's considered wishin' I've touched many through my words and pain and now the millions chop my words into herbs and grain weathered some severe storms escaped sticky bushes got a lot of nice things yo Po keeps it pushin' thankful for it all cause it didn't have to be lettin' Knowledge be Born Prince Po the emcee Chorus Blessed love Blessed is creation Blessed is the most high unto every nation Blessed is every color we must be patient We are just patients in this blessed world we use as a station (Johnny Cosmic) lifes not always worth warring or just fighting its an up hill battle and yes we gotta get to hiking the way I always pray is to the lord through this writing and maybe just one day we'll realize without the sirens stop the violence

I Know 02:36
I never thought that this life could be so hard but as I look back now I think, oh my god without a college education and a credit card I really can't believe that I've made it this far it always seems that authority stacks their cards against the common man to make it extra hard and in the back of my mind love is so bizarre it doesn’t seem worth the fight once it falls apart Chorus (KnowledgeBorn07 and Johnny Cosmic) And I know Some things are true And that’s pain is real And nothings for sure dude Even the calmest man can lose his cool And it could be me and it could be you And I know some things for sure Some of the wisest people are the poor Some of the dumbest ones are the rich And it’s apparent when you see their lifestyle switch I always fought against authority gave back to poverty stood for equality that’s the way that I gotta be I outta be runnin’ for the president cause it’s so funny to see how their moneys spent and it’s a rat race out to get the cheese no matter how many kids they’re killin’ over seas when did this world lose their feet I wanna see the return of the family Chorus Cause I know Some things are true And that war is real And nothings for sure dude Even the sharpest man can lose his tools And it could be me but it’s probably you And I know Some things for sure Some of the wisest people are the poor Some of the dumbest ones are the rich And it’s apparent when you see their lifestyle switch
