Track Name: Complicated
Afraid to speak
My soul is weak
Can’t say how I feel
Cause everything's a mistake
Don’t lean on me
Cause I just might fall down
Where did we go wrong?
You didn’t like my song?
Tried the best I could
I guess I did it all wrong
And all I can say
Is that I'm sorry
Tried the best I could
And I fucked it up anyway

Chorus
Don’t act like u don’t care
Cause I know u do
You can't erase the years
Even if you wanted to
Bittersweet memories
Make my heart pound

Afraid to speak
In need of some space
Never got the chance
To plead my case
And everyday (u know me)
No matter what I say
Always gonna be the bad guy anyway

Chorus
Don’t act like u don’t care
Cause I know u do
You can't erase the years
Even if you wanted to
Bittersweet memories
Make my heart pound
Track Name: Johnny B. Bad
Johnny was a good boy who always did bad
He never realized all the things that he had
Come out of the bar every night
He never took a cab
Got behind the wheel and drove home
The boy was bad
He stole from all of the family that he had
When he didn’t get his way, ooo
The boy was mad
Sold dro on the side, and always shorted your bag
I told Johnny one day, he's gonna wear a toe tag

His mama tried to reason with him everyday
But he never wants to hear a single word she say
Always gives her grief
He never goes to school
And she cries and she cries
Swearing he used to be good
So he screams at the top of his lungs
That he's gotta impress all of the neighborhood
Mama said don’t mind what people think
But then he left the house to go out and drink

Chorus
Johnny b bad, he got his mind off track, right
And he’s gonna start a fight, and you know he’s gonna

Later on that night Johnny was picked up by the cops
On the corner downtown, slangin' some rocks
And the judge didn’t like it
Didn’t give him the time of day
Didn’t even want to hear a single word he say
But his mama got up, she got up and screamed
Judge have mercy, he's my baby
And the judge found him guilty on the count of 3
And now he's spending a year in the penitentiary

Chorus
Johnny b bad, he got his mind off track, right
Johnny B. Bad
Track Name: Love In Analog
Every star has it’s time to shine
But now your time is soon to come
And as I sing this lonely tune
One second closer to the end my love

Pre-Chorus
The writing on the wall, it bears your name
A reflection of the past, it’s such a shame
What should I expect from this new age?
Your heart is no longer needed
They’ve got copy and paste

What do these vampires want from me?
They want my soul, ain’t never gonna set me free
Their excuses make it so easy
But that’s only what they want you to believe

Pre-Chorus
The writing on the wall, it bears your name
A reflection of the past, I’m such a shame
I tried, but I never found a solution
We survived the battles, but the war was never won

Chorus
Look inside and see
Do you really believe?
A constant occupation of corporate observation
Turn your soul into an equation
They think it works
I don’t think it does (2nd Time Around – “I don’t think its right”)
Artificial duplication of real inspiration
Give respect to what is true

Pre-Chorus

Chorus
Track Name: Wash Away
I can’t pay attention long enough to make you stay
I forgot to mention again I’m sorry
But you knock me down, pick me up
Use and abuse me please
I don’t care, no I don’t care
That’s part of my problem lately

Chorus
I’ve been bitter
But I’ll try to find my way
To better days and let these feelings wash away

I care what you say
Maybe a little too much these days
My fault anyway but still I complain
Lock me up, kick me down
See me on the ground
I don’t know what to do with myself
She says that I need some help
I know

Chorus
I’ve been bitter
But I’ll try to find my way
To better days cause you’re better off this way

Chorus
I’ve been bitter
But I’ll try to find my way
To better days
I’ve been bitter
But I’ll try to find my way
To sunshine and let these feelings wash away
Track Name: Hear It
I hope that these grey skies
Clear up someday
But for now I’ll sing
I’ll sing my blues away
And I don’t care if nobody hears me
I’d scream it to the world if I had to
Just to prove how much I need you

Chorus
Baby baby where are you?
when are u coming home?
My song don’t mean nothing if u ain’t there to hear it
It don’t mean nothing if u ain’t there to hear it

Bridge
Sitting by the seaside, waiting for the surf to come
Track Name: Pathway
It’s a beautiful day outside
Not a cloud in the sky except one that looks like an angel
Warm summer breeze
Mild, let it be
Almost to good to be true

Chorus
Take a path to somewhere

Well I sometimes think well into the night
Under a moon lit sky and candlelight
Navigate the stars with your mind
Warm summer breeze
Mild, let it be
Almost to good to be true

Chorus
Take a path to somewhere
Track Name: Come Back Ditka
COME BACK DITKA!!!

Nothing more to say
Track Name: Smooth Jazz Wonder (ft. Hubblequest)
Rappin’ so nice put your head in a cloud
Bumpin’ that shit so loud now blow your speakers out
Let the bass pound, dig into the sound
That’s true love, this fluid mind sound
I’ll never let u know what time it is
Convince you my rhyme can fizz
I’m sick of the biz
And I ain’t even close yet
Soon to wind up dead, got a price on my head
Oh lord save me from what’s already been said
No need to hide what I feel
Like a book I’ve got u read
I look into your eyes and peek into your head
You think I'm insane, messed up in the brain
Blind in the mind by design
A de-functional mess that’s been unblessed
I know what I’ve seen, and you'd believe me if u were me
So sit back, relax, I’m under control
Christians' got the rhythm
Franks' got the soul
I set the controls for the heart of the sun
Sit back relax
The party has now begun
And we got so much in store
You’d think I was a whore
Rhymes delivered so freely
Always substance at the core
See I don’t really rap the way other cats do
My music is a contraceptive for the disease
Of the bullshit tunes
And if u got the blues
Cause there’s no refuge for u if u want to hear something new
Look at the pompous musicians of our time
How many have been corrupted by money
They’re snorting lines, drinkin' as much as they please
With women all over the place
Then they go on the TV and rub it in your face
That has no place in me
I only seek god's tranquility
We all need peace in this wicked fuckin' place that we call home built on blood and stone
Always treading the unknown
I always watch behind my back

(It’s the Hubble Quest and the Fluid Minds)
It’s the professionals rehearsing
While the amateurs practice
And the naturals stand around
And think the fastest
