about

This album has been LONG in the making. It was recorded over the course of a month or so in 2012, was mixed and mastered by the end of the year...then it just sat there. I had to put music on the backburner for a while to deal with some personal issues. Now I am refocusing on music and working on my follow up album. Thank you all for your support...gotta keep the movement moving.

Cause I care/even with the Sun in my eyes my vision is clear, lies, religion & fear/the truth is stranger than fiction, so I hit the booth amid clear and present danger on mission this year..oh yeah..

I see them fighting for freedom even in Iran, shining beacons got me believing I can take control of my life and shape it/won't have ta face it alone I fight alongside my compatriots/every song I write helps break me away from it, vacate this cell, escape from hell, y'all know the Matrix well/bar codes & surveillance tapes they sell the fake revolution but who cares?

It's like a ball & chain, an anchor that's got us all estranged and in danger/you can call it deranged like 3 buildings falling cause of 2 planes..word..I feel like Heinlein's stranger, Valentine Smith just trying ta find some balance and remain timeless while paradigms shift alongside the battle lines in this paradise adrift where time & space blur


[Verse Two]
They say peace on Earth can never be achieved so it's relegated to being a dream deferred but I don't believe they words and celebrate living free as a bird/I elevate without strings above the scene & observe the way they tell ya ta pray but it doesn't seem ta work/people scream & curse, scheme in church then careen headfirst but things only seem ta get worse it's obscene with all the killing and blood spilling that occurs, no peace on Earth/but I find serenity in rhyme, it's a remedy of mine, I'm extra sensory inclined, living existentially in these times that seem berserk/everybody chasing the cream only seems ta bring out the worst in us/the value of life seems worthless but I guess it varies from person ta person, despite love some just wanna fight it's in their blood/some live their entire lives never giving up, others give in to the pressure, livin' with depression, turnin' ta drugs & sex like a form of therapy session, no sense of clarity with so much despair it seems incessant/we living in these last days, at least that's what the pastors say trying ta lead the sheep towards greener pastures some stray from the path towards disaster, some pray for guidance/in the midst of war & violence music's a form of asylum from the storms and high winds, leaving souls well worn, still we surviving/really I'm striving to live my life according to the golden rule, knowing I'm the only one I'm beholden to, so I treasure every moment cause you never really know how many more moments you've got left/the prospect of death is macabre, yes, but you can't let it stop your progress/learn from the past & grow, never let anyone discourage you from the path you chose, appreciate what you have though cause this life passes in a flash, it's fragile/I am still waiting for the day we can all say free at last like King in the Capital




[Verse Three]
I'm just trying ta find some peace of mind, I'm just trying to find some peace in my lifetime/I write rhymes for like minds and even those at the opposite end of the spectrum/people need something ta believe in, dreams and hopes, some sense of accomplishment & direction/the confidence ta take that next step when all sorts of nonsense has been embedded in their sub-conscious like "Inception"/in debt from cradle to sarcophagus/working like slaves through this manifestation of that Fritz Lang film "Metropolis" but never question the reasons why/instead we stress ends on an endless quest for a piece of the pie/livin in distress, content ta believe any lie, when they speak you comply/I'm guessin that's why so few reach for the sky and so many sold their souls for gold & jewels, just ta be in full view of the public eye/hearts grown cold and dark as coal soot but fuck it I'm bioluminescent/I've been here for a while though I'm still trying ta define my true essence/nevertheless it's music with a message, we use it like a weapon/it's the truest form of expression as well as a tool in the war against oppression/it's got me soothed & implored, opening new doors/I broke the mold now I'm hoping to move forward, progress is synonymous with peace/I woulda thought that was obvious yet so many live on the edge without a shred of consciousness, let alone some common sense, it's deep/our problems never get resolved instead they simply evolve with technology/do the knowledge you'll see the root cause it be greed producing poverty/intrusive policies reducing colonies to ruins/history has proven this to be true it's not mythology or philosophy I'm spewing/on an odyssey pursuing peace, it's so elusive to keep/you can't do it using troops, a crucifix or police



[Verse Four]
I told Cheebo this was his opus then I wrote this for me though this is also for all my peoples focused on peace I know it's a struggle that sometimes seems hopeless/when the young die from bullets and improvised explosives, sent ta die for bullshit, we've been desensitized and know it but won't admit it/sex & violence on the television at every minute yet we livin' in a bubble/obsessing over death and religion within this debtors prison until all that's left are victims digging through the rubble/where did the love go? No trust or hope, plus no justice means there can't be peace/I guess it must just be the nature of man ta be a beast, we kill each other over faith, over land or for greed/, when we're really brothers no matter your faith, homeland or your creed/if only we would build together, imagine the world we could achieve...maybe I'm just a dreamer..
Track Name: Do Music
[Verse One]
Yo I'd rather do music, ya'll got it ass backwards, you're clueless/you're far from masters, if you're not dropping knowledge and jewels..QUIT..Who's this conscious student, constant with the movement? Made my way to Wisconsin and now I'm a monster looming on the horizon/check the mercury in your thermometers..rising/respect the words, I bring death to herbs who scheme and plot on her demise in an era of material wackness, smoke and mirrors, spirits still lacking but I go hard out your stereo tax it like Weez One/memories in a mausoleum, remember when emcees were raw and the beats stunned your nervous system? Now see what she's become? A murder victim/You heard the description of the perps if you listen, offenders spitting verses with no purpose, convict 'em/it's us versus the system, so we bubbling beneath the surface uplifting, shifting tectonic plates causing quakes/on mission with no time to waste cause there are lives at stake, can't let them divide with hate

[Verse Two]
So chill the fuck out maybe fill a dug out/ain't no reason to kill or bug out, we need to build then bust out/our enemies will steal the rug out from under us, emcees ain't real cause they thugged out with guns to bust, dumb motherfuckers..WHAT?!..I'd rather do music/ionize matter, spend my days as a lion, survive through this music, it's therapeutic, it's there so we use it/kicks, drums and snares, lyrics that flood your ears, fluid like the blood pumping through my veins/I don't write to get the clubs jumping, screw the fame, use your brain, confusion's the game/Hollywood's all an illusion, there's no excuse for the lames, the people deserve better/get your hands up like the steeple or some cheeba that burns better, I blow out your speaker just ta reach ya with words never preach cause that's for the birds instead I encourage research and revolution/let's have peace on Earth instead of shooting

[Verse Three]
So this the reload, Stream & Cheebo, the illest team since Rage Against The Machine, this evil empire is bound ta fall/freedom fighters tear down these walls that surround us all, can't let them clown us, nah/truly, I'm not trying to be rude see but you just don't move me, I couldn't give 2 fucks about your jewelry or your jacuzzi/it's a New World Order they're using you to achieve, the youth glued to the screen, consumers consuming like sheep but all that shit is wack and will soon be deceased/I spit on the track like an uzi, till it collapses like Iraq did barely 2 weeks into the 'shock and awe' campaign/invasion, dropping jaws, on a rampage, hijacking stations/live, captivating, mind activating, rhyme Captain blazing, fascinating/assassinating the fascists in a nation where past generations staged mass demonstrations, now it's all about the cash, guns and the ratings
