Track Name: Living
i’ve been living that breezy life
I’ve been living that tv life
I’ve been living that

turn the gain up, block the exits
watch your step, kid, best protect it
i’ve been zoned on these micro edits
weird flex but that’s my aesthetic
off the hinges, i’ve been reckless
off the fringes, got my nexus
fly like i got wings that span endless
every metropolis on checklist
65 floors high - sierra
rainbow room in the sky - tierra
tryna adjust to this clime - sahara
i get height to redefine my era
i’ve been living that late night, jet set
always feeling like it’s ready get set
i never stopped spitting fire
but i haven’t had a second here to catch my breath yet
Track Name: The Flame
hold on to the flame
that only you can hold
that keeps at bay the darkest cold
another light could never make you whole

softly but sure
the story that you weave
will be the gift that sets you free
the ashes of a tapestry

there will be times
that it seems your world and wants collide
but hold on for your heart to beat inside
to be your guide

hold on to the flame
that only you can touch
that lights the path it must
the journey is a game of trust

there will be times
that grow darker with the dusk
but light will still remain in us
the longest night is but a shadow’s blush

there will be times
that it seems your world and wants collide
but hold on for your heart to beat inside
to be your guide
Track Name: Basimilus
whatchu know about the future or the past
i’m stitching up the sutures so they last
put a morph on the kick drum, hit one
dialing in the mod, do the math
a monster, i launch from the swamp
wade in the water but was made for the top
all to the alter, i never fade, never falter
i push waves ’til their ear drums pop
with basimilus from the beginning
i’m skinning any kids in the vicinity
swinging for fences in nine innings
and spitting this litness litmus that liquifies fillings
‘cause i’m fit to be killing it solo, i never divide winnings
so many lights but no stars
cameras pointed at black tar
i opened up the game like a scar
and they’re still upstream, i’m too far
Track Name: Lucid
i’m lucid dreaming, never pinch me
get a beat rinsed, keep the freaks twingy
never shopping poppy gossip, that’s chintzy
too many puppies salivating at this bland mince meat
i splatter vivid color, kandinsky
alabaster salad how i sculpt it so princely
now were you tryna stunt, ‘cause i didn’t see
gonna take some real chops to convince me
making jaws drop with this molotov small talk
knocking shop walls down, tripping up a mall cop
appalled at this label art fed to herds
i'm tuned into a frequency you never heard

gonna get it in time
gonna keep on this climb
they’re gonna get it in time
Track Name: Blaze
got started with a dream and a love
world's unbalanced, i can see it from above
one talent come to even it up
let the beat bang, let the bass bleed from the sub
i'm deranged in these ways that when uncaged
cut straight through your veins, shaped like a blade
new page, 'cause i stray from the race of the mainstays
raising the stakes up to space
built from the ground up, purged in the flames
with the sound up, bursting your brains
won't stop even if i'm first in the game
so hooked, still thirst in the rain
i'm a demon at the booth or the stage
or maybe an angel, i couldn't ever gauge
but i got the reins, and i never restrain
sever the chains on this deafening craze
i'm here to blaze

i wanna see those hands up in the sky, ooh
you know that i can take you for a ride, ooh
‘cause, babe, i got all these trails to blaze, ah

vibing, turning up this music so loud
trying to make this magic like it's all i know how
every time i drop it kids a be like "oh wow"
sunday morning, feeling hella good, no doubt
'cause i blaze without blazing
get up and get revved
got seventy ways to make a set deaf
embracing these plays so amazing
and making a name, taking the game to the next lev
and i don't care what anybody says now
don't give any fucks, i'm fresh out
do it for the ones who came to get down
do it for the ones who came to get loud
and i'm doing it for real, if you can't tell
teaching you some real language - manuel
so if you're really with me in the bandshell
get your hands held up high, let the ground swell

i wanna see those hands up in the sky, ooh
you know that i can take you for a ride, ooh
‘cause, babe, i got all these trails to blaze, ah
Track Name: Never Back Down (feat. Jet Engine)
let go and come with me
you know i can set you free
doing this 'til we reach the top

and in the turning tide
we'll never break our stride
'cause you know we never stop

never back down

i'm kicking down these doors i'm taking everything
we're ready for a change and we want everything

we can get right
the moment each of these nights
when i'm in that zone
and reaching these heights
own it, i'm better than the rest of them
and unloading, keeping this tight
and you know when the music's up that loud
you can get closer than that now
i get down but i never back down
get down but i never back down

let go and come with me
you know i can set you free
doing this 'til we reach the top

and in the turning tide
we'll never break our stride
'cause you know we never stop

never back down

i'm kicking down these doors i'm taking everything
we're ready for a change and we want everything

this is my life
i can make it whatever i might like
i'm doing it quite right
i'm living these hype nights
i'm ripping this live mic
don't sit on the sidelines
if you dream, let's bring it to twilight
just dance if you wanna go that route
with these clothes and these lights all blacked out
i get down but i never back down
get down but i never back down

let go and come with me
you know i can set you free
doing this 'til we reach the top

and in the turning tide
we'll never break our stride
'cause you know we never stop

never back down
Track Name: Nomad
i’m a nomad, i’ve been roaming
i don’t know, man, when i go in
might never go back to the homeland
i’m afloat in an interplanetary ocean
setting sail with a full wind
out there where the stars shine bright
when i beam back beats with the insight
i could still incite riotous scenes back on earth
with a subwoofer clipping on 808 kick like
i’m a shark in a fistfight
i’m a martian at midnight
'bout to march in and hit
like i’m partial to spitting real art from a windpipe
i’m a nomad, i’ve been roaming
god of war, i’ve been roman
standing in the storms while they close in
blood red planet i’m roving

interplanetary
steady headed through the furnace
heaven burning with me
seven minutes to the surface
Track Name: Rhythm King
tango to fandango
slang got sugar like a mango
produced with an ear like van gogh
turn the gain up, turn the mains up
make it clip, you know i’m tryna mess some brains up
drum boss from the blocks to the taiko
ah, turn the lights low for the maestro
ah, amped on the drum machines i pillage
king through the cab, 66 was the vintage

chieftain with a tongue like an arrow
rhythm king, tempi emperor, swing pharaoh
overdrive, burning through the night, no bolero
rhythm king, tempi emperor, swing pharaoh

do the black mamba mambo in a rondo
ground shakes, level the hospitals and condos
i’m so lit up repping toronto
there’s no tomorrow, just get what you want go
i can put that swing on anything
noise that i bring, sounds that i wring like wrestling
tag teams vs my middle finger in the ring
watch them all fall to the beat
i’m the rhythm king

chieftain with a tongue like an arrow
rhythm king, tempi emperor, swing pharaoh
overdrive, burning through the night, no bolero
rhythm king, tempi emperor, swing pharaoh
Track Name: Grains of Sand
grains of sand
like stars of old
so far from land
and under this
they’re numberless
as grains of sand
