VERSE 1

It's Janurary and my memory was hazy
Calling shots with my man jay
in February
My crates full of old demos
Instrumentals
09 from ideas in 08
And it was fate that I made it this far
So don't test me
that's my new motto //
firstborn Godson
new moniker like a son of Zebedee
with my brother
Atlas
It was October when we dropped the first ep /
underground kings
low key like Infinite
for me, I owe it to my family
To leave a legacy of artistry
I'm
Stuck // between a rock and hard place
Proverbially
pressure builds internally
tryna outshine 7 bill people
like a constellation
in the solar system
when i hit your radio station

CHORUS

verses bless the mind of a poet
speak the words that are rarely spoken of
the daily reminder
for a grinder
never goin under even when your knees buckle
and the levee breaks
sometimes it takes
some
time
to find your way
navigate through a hurricane
tell your story

(talk about) x4

VERSE 2

elsewhere / on this little planet
is a girl named Alice
only 19
and ran the gamut of /
experimentally damaging
habits when her so called friends left her stranded when they vanished she's cautious when /

people tell her "i love you"
she's nobody's fool
studies in school
harder than anyone
building her vocabulary
so she can be a poet /
or an emcee

detox with a bass line /
the guidelines of our lives are comprised of deadlines //
so analyze your surroundings
make the most of your time
till your presense is felt
astounding and they crown you
kings and queens of the establishment
fly higher than your environment
then come back and impart wisdom
like a, like a,
like a,
like a wiseman

CHORUS X2

verses bless the mind of a poet
speak the words that are rarely spoken of
the daily reminder
for a grinder
never goin under even when your knees buckle
and the levee breaks
sometimes it takes
some
time
to find your way
navigate through a hurricane
tell your story

(talk about)

OUTRO

this one goes out to the entrepreneurs of the future working a nine to five in the present time
to the brother studying in college practicing his cyphers alone while the rest were out partying
to the woman raising a family by herself

don't give up

keep singing
keep playing
keep writing

i call this song Higher
