This track came about during a time of broken friendships and an overall struggle of self.

I was at home one night strumming these chords really reflecting on my past. 27 miles signifies my 27 years of life. Growing up influenced heavily by the hip hop culture since age nine and remembering some of my older favorite group such as public enemy, x-clan, run dmc, beastie boys...etc... one common thread that I always found in older hip hop was that it was always speaking up for rights of the oppressed and also very pro black.

To me color has been the biggest struggle of my life. Why people treat each other differently because of race color and creed kills me. I feel like having the skin tone I do is like walking in the Devils shoes because of the "White Devil" term.

One thing that I have come to learn is that devils come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and so do Angels so be careful before judging based on race, color or creed.

The souls are worn out signifies the soles of shoes but also the soul here on earth

The basis of the song is just me dealing with myself as a being of the human family who need to not worry about the struggles of these physical forms because I know that there is TRUTH and that TRUTH exists on a plane that physical eye cannot see. The truth that I speak of is that every living thing on this earth is one and has a purpose and without love we will self destruct.


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


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


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
