Track Name: Diamond Minds
1st VERSE

No letting go cause I made ya
I’ll keep you safe, let me cage ya
Setting goals going major
You’re only heading for eraser
So now you’re looking for the light?
You never know that height
I’m trying to help, alright?

You’ll be so lost if I leave ya
That’s why you should let me lead ya
Don’t let them see you naked
Cover up, keep it sacred
If you know what I’m like
I’m so (so) full of life
It doesn’t get much higher
It’s just an act, liar.

CHORUS

I may hurt your pride
Now you eat the pie
Found out you’re a lame
Can’t hide
And all of the time
That you heeded me
It was you who needed me

Don’t know half the pain
But I do need to try
And I’m moving much further
You can’t hold the fire
My truth is aflame
Now you need a plan.

2nd VERSE

This train of thoughts is the mistress
Express this distress
Keep following this step
This introspective, instead
Of acknowledging what’s been said
Predestined, inbred
No use following this thread,
It’s dead in this head.

A vagrant in vacuity
Sliding in the humidity
Stuck in the box of heredity
You say it’s for my security

The turbulent ship has run aground
And I gather the grey matter it’s so profound
Negative charges, positive barges compound
White noise in black holes to be found

Diamond mines in hybrid minds
I’ll be found, I’m inclined
And I’ll be fine, I’ll fight my mind.

MIDDLE PART

This high, won’t come
Won’t come, too heavy
Seems dreary
This rhythm
Must come together
Won’t wither

And I, I see it all
Can’t lie, I feel it
Diamond mines in hybrid minds

The truth this is mine
Track Name: Weaving
Must you really go alone?
Won't you stay with the
One who gets to give you all
Don't wanna do this my dear
I wanna keep this smile here

If you insist to go alone
Though we could stay together
Refuse these tears I'm shedding all
They're Better off wept in complete love
Oh it's a mess

Been doing this so long
Stringing years along
You know
Do I need to know
The only man I thought that I loved
My love,
was my loss

I don't know what you're hiding
And don't know where you go
Indeed i try
I'm stuck with the ghost
Of your thoughts

Do we stay allies
Or are we just a guilty lie
Stop making up reasons
Cos we've never had a passing glance at hope

We've flown so far and wide
We sailed the sands along the Nile
You still behold my heart
I held on to this bond we had that never really was
There's no nobody here,
No one can hear
No

2nd PART

You can't do much huh?
I'll only watch ya
You can't do much huh
Just break this structure

Im sold I know I can't beat ya
I know my love can't reach ya
I must believe I don't need ya
Life's gotta gimme more ya

I'm sold
Nope
You won't beat
This treat, here
that I need
To get rid of what you are in my head
Come on and let’s get into this trance
Track Name: The Edge
Aeons fly
takes time
Capture tides
To hold on
As mine
Just mine
Need it
See It

Ferrous
Bright
Seizures
Light
Without bound
But flows in line
I will reach the edge
It goes down to the edge
A million grounds
At the edge

Ferrous
Bright
Seizures
Light
Soar high
The view shows what’s mine
Just mine
Track Name: Heavy Dust I
Radiance
remnant
Beyond the surface
descendent
synthesis
Over the ground

Ash
Your heart
The Light
The End
All they have has time

extant lines melt into the eyes
de- ice
dutifully
infused in me
(scratch)
membranes and veins that map our be-ing
sowing the grain of life for a bigger purpose
decidedly unsung for nature’s service
disposed with silent meekness
and humility

Is it just (the) physicality?
There’s more no
before the end
defy my own propensity
go beyond my entity
just the physicality?
There’s more no
we know

So certainly certain these energies fervently
dwell in me
So certainly certain these energies fervently
excel in me
Track Name: Heavy Dust II
WHATEVER YOU TOUCH
LEAVES PRINTS
THE HEAVIEST DUST
WE SINK IN
WHATEVER YOU TOUCH
LEAVES PRINTS
THE HEAVIEST DUST
WE SINK IN

RAP VERSE

WHANNA NI NYAME?
MALLAMS AND SWAMIS
MAN IS SO MANIC
WOMAN IS MAGIC
UNDERSTANDING THIS PLANET
BEFORE THE COLLISION
THE BOARDERS OF FISSION
DISTORTED PRECISION
RHETORICAL PRESENCE
AND ALL THE POSITIONS
THE CORNERS AND PRISMS
BEYOND YOUR CONSCIOUS, EXISTENCE
RESPONDING TO VOICES IN DISTANCES
Track Name: Crushed
I have no more than I can see around just herein
Hear the empty burst permeate and grow

Time moves on
Lay the earth with care
Squeeze thru your remnant life
Submit your eyes to your ground
Be as coal
Just as light
