LYRICS:

[Hazey]
so much to see and there's so little time
the diversity of earth it be so perfectly divine
in my mind I got a list of places that I wanna visit
if it's filled with different faces different flavas then I dig it,
Auckland Melbourne a trip to the South Pacific
Bali to Maui to Cali it sounds terrific
now it's scripted like some hieroglyphics on the walls in Egypt
hit up the Bahamas then Bermuda, to find its secrets
east to Japan to Mongolia and Taiwan
peace to Sudan and Estonia we fly on,
gotta make a stop at both Fiji and Galapagos
ampersand Amsterdam nothing seems impossible,
peep the homie White Rain when I drop in Seoul Korea
no idea flip a penny then we off to Costa Rica
hope to see ya, when I touch down in Argentina
margins need adjusting clutching earth and all it's furthest reaches

hook

[Keen]
I was born in eighty three, in Valporaiso Indiana,
When I became a toddler, my family had a plan to,
Move across the country, and settle down in DE,
With tax-free shopping and beaches that were cleanly,
Kept, my feet were swept right out from underneath me,
My home until I'd grown and learned to roam indiscreetly,
Then I learned about the globe and all the different regions,
Miami had Heat, while the Eskimos were freezing,
In Alaska, chilling in their igloos,
New York created rap, the land where they spit true,
In Asia cats are working harder than the next man,
it's foolish to think that you live in the best land,
No matter where you're at, Taiwan to Australia,
The history of every country has got failure,
It's real, ask the Japanese and the Germans,
Facts unravel, anytime you travel you'll be learning

hook

[Hazey]
drive a car take a bus, you need to fly a plane
use a boat or a bike you can even ride a train
find the range and make it happen just to travel cross the alas
try to practice you can grasp it take the earth right off it's axis
like a magnet, both negative and postitive
different kinds of people here but I prefer the optimist
I'm competent, exploring like a colonist
translating dialects and languages like java script

[Keen]
I've got to get to Cali to peep the homie Tigga,
And skate the skittle ledges in the middle of December,
Avoiding winter cold when you chilling in a freezer,
I freestyle with Tron in Bali Indonesia,
my master plan's to vacay in Amsterdam,
n Travel every area Ukraine to Bulgaria,
Everywhere I landed, my map was expanded,
Won't stop til I've ventured every acre of the planet
Track Name: "Pencil" feat. Numatik (prod. by DJ Xross & Elyon)
[Hook x2]
Pushing craft, past trying to make it last
Task-driven, every breath, I exist to—
Open up your mind with a pencil
(You know it) it started with a pencil…

[Verse 1: Hazey]
He was a teacher, the best; he was different than the rest
The type to play chess instead of handing you a test
Who'd a guessed, the first adult to treat me as an equal
I'm a kid though I know that people can be deceitful
Good and evil sometimes it's hard to tell but he was different
An orphan since an infant he was always self-sufficient
Now his mission’s helping others, prepare for their lives
And develop their potential, from where it derives
At the time (yeah) I was just young naive and innocent
Unaware he cared and that this is significant
As a kid I was always met with indifference
Others never helping me to pursue my interests
Just ignorance, but this was a turning point
It opened up my eyes to more that just earning coin
I'm older now in hindsight I see it with clarity
The cycle of life, I push my pencil for posterity

[Verse 2: Numatik]
If I—take a look at, peeking as a Rugrat
Got to go back to hide ‘n seek, that I was new at
Too bad, that I had to see to believe to do that!
New class, give me a minute I want to move back…
Ain’t got no friends…
I mean I had one, but I told him ‘bout the promises of heaven
It’s a delicate—situation, let me level with
You, if I celebrate you, would you tell me it’s cool
Pointing fingers, as we wrestle with whom
Brought truth, it’s apparent that we started with burying two
Desolate and despairing, hoping time would repair it
I approve of the message, maybe not the method…

[Bridge x3: Numatik]
If I could’ve gone back…would I take it all back?

[Verse 3: Keen]
Drowning in thought, I can feel my mind racing
Takes everything I got to try and find patience
And turn the high maintenance into more simplistic
Structure, now I lust for the conviction
To look for the light when night seems the darkest
Wondering how could life be so heartless
The homeless are starving, the crime rates alarming
It's not a screenplay for an actor to star in
It's hard when you can't see a light at the end
Of the tunnel, heal scars when I write with my pen
Now I'll fight ‘til the end in spite of my wins
And losses, I try to make right of my sins
I write my wrongs in songs and deep poems
As a friendly reminder to always keep going
And appreciate my lawn when it doesn't seem as green
From a distance it's difficult to perceive the scene
Track Name: "Something to Remember" (prod. by Grover)
LYRICS:

Verse 1 - Hazey

droppin it live, rock for my tribe, I'm pullin the moon and stoppin the tide
I'm plottin to thrive, forgotten the times, teach em to grow cuz they rotten inside
a lot of em try but they spittin it wack, for riches and cash, don't listen to that
I stick to my craft, diggin and scratch, a mission I'm driven equipped with the facts

far from mediocre we got Grover on Production
gets the weight up off ya shoulders, a break from the disruption
in the front like a chauffeur smokers odor from the blunts and
it ain't over til it's over so we never stop for nothing

excessive I write, blessin the mic, in essence the lessons expressing my life
less than the hype, I question the price, the stress and oppression addressing the rights
a message for night, we bringing the sun, beginning with one ya finished ya done
a system of puns, I've written for fun, dismissing the critics ya gimmicks are dumb

we strive to make things better January to December
cuz we in it for the love they plan to marry for the cheddar
need a mentor look no further hit the target in the center
I'm an author and a lender here with something to remember

Hook - Guru Sample


Verse 2- Keen

Write what I feel, highlighting the skill, providing the real, inside of my will,
Powered by love, Rhymes tower above, cowards will run, from outbursts of puns,
Flow's never ending, there's no pretending, show what I'm inventing, there goes the in thing, Crew spittin tight, we bruising the mic, clueless at night, til you choosing the light,

We doing it right WonderFlow on a Grover beat,
Fast or slow yo either way you know it's sweet,
You thugs got guns but in my blood is no retreat,
Rockin hand warmers is the only time I'm holding heat,

Step up ya game I'm reppin the name, the mic I'm possessins the weapon I claim,
life is a mess I'm fighting the stress, write when I'm vexed to enlighten the best,
lending a hand to friends in demand, proventin the man from extending the plan,
to throw us away controlling the fray, I'm showing the way to make most of the day,

living in the moment every second is an omen,
only the strong survive so I'm protecting what I'm holding,
no one can prevent the flow compete as a contender,
even cats with dementia know I'm something to remember

Hook - Guru Sample
Track Name: "Don't Hold Ya Breath" [Hazey82 Remix]
LYRICS:

Verse 1 (Keen)

Show what the art is just by writing tight,
providing sight thru the darkness I'll be your guiding light,
shining bright, keeping the path illuminated,
won't give up the fight, I'm rappin thru the hatred,
to overcome the plight, the craft is just too sacred,
they told ya what to like, you don't have to choose the basic,
don't lose the faith kid, they're bluffing in the lab,
my raps'll prove the fake shit is nothing but a fad,
in love with my pad, I got next, patience,
is a virtue, so I don't hold my breath waiting,
rhyme til I turn blue, & bless the rotation,
with realness, I never mess with speculation,
honesty of good men, it's truth I've been providing,
I ate the pudding, cuz the proof is in the writing,
confiding in the music, now my heart is free,
i can clearly see, the artistry of Marcus D

Hook:

"and i can see clearly now" (Guru sample)
my goal is to make others near me proud,
vision twenty twenty no clouds in sight,
everything is everthing I'm living my life"

"and i can see clearly now" (Guru sample)
speak the truth so i hope that you hear me loud,
life is a lesson from ya birth to ya death,
want my crew to stop well don't hold ya breath"

Verse 2 (Hazey)

They try to cloud my vision making clones they wanna duplicate
so now I'm spitting wisdom listen closely to elucidate
ya intellect an introspect my goal is to rejuvenate
the stepping is progression but we take it back to truer days
you can wait, but the earth keeps spinning
so I strategize to maximize my worth each mission
true treasure don't glisten gotta look beneath the surface
so I unsheath my urges, I've come to teach the circus
cuz the world is full of fake clowns traitors and haters
think they greater wantin paper for no labor while I pray for,
acres with no neighbors can I be alone with nature
maybe later now its flavor that I'm servin like a waiter
hope you savor it appreciate life and take a step back
inhale take it all in, and respect that
you only hear the realness from this unsigned kid,
I'm pullin back the curtains let the sunshine in

Hook:

"and i can see clearly now" (Guru sample)
my goal is to make others near me proud,
vision twenty twenty no clouds in sight,
everything is everthing I'm living my life"

"and i can see clearly now" (Guru sample)
speak the truth so i hope that you hear me loud,
life is a lesson from ya birth to ya death,
want my crew to stop well don't hold ya breath"
Track Name: "Masks" (prod. by Elyon & Grover)
hazey verse:

never get it twisted not a clone ya know we different
stripping wisdom is their mission anytime you look or listen
since an infant brainwashing just to make your brain rotten
try to make you fall back like it's autumn change clocks in
November, remember we all individuals
maintain your principles is how your reach the pinnacle
from typical to specialty it's difficult but heavenly,
break thru the cracks never mask your identity
a better breed of people always see thru a deception
not the eyes use the mind, a legendary weapon
true expression of yourself not influenced by the masses,
television shows are a joke but I'm not laughing
make it happen on your own terms you decide the deal
with the passion and exposure see the man behind the wheel
is yourself with the facts, make your own path
kinda like a superhero but just never wear a mask



Keen verse 2

You gotta learn from the lessons life's shown you,
be a man, plan to stand on ya own two,
Sometimes it never seems as Tough as now,
But you gotta push through life's ups and downs,
it can overload ya like the top roller coaster,
still no need to rock a mask yo it's not October,
they control the way you think, now you're all fast to choose,
against your natural instincts, push em out mass produced,
it's pitiful they're critical of a little ridicule,
it'd be perfect if being typical was difficult,
and they stopped pretending but the show's never ending,
now society's defending these condescending lemmings,
preventing growth from in between, while blocking individuals dreams,
a cynical team with schemes to develop that residual cream,
a critical stream of consciousness is needed for survival,
when independent thought is lost upon arrival.
Track Name: "Stay on my Mind" feat. J Universal (prod. by Larkz)
Verse 1: Hazey

I try to live my life but they just stay on my mind
when I'm walking down the street when I'm standing in line
like I'm stranded in time, it's so demanding I find
I can't help myself I'm just a man on the grind
every glance is a dime, or at least an eight
i'm looking for them all like a kid for easter eggs
with every feature legs brain and all that's in between
gotta find the perfect one I'm only falling for a queen
just calling what I see, and what I see is good
here in my neck of the woods and in every other hood
often travel on foot just to get a better view
gotta find the treasure who's the love I never knew
it's so hard to choose, to make a decision,
all the different options are just clouding up my vision
but I risen to the challenge, steady on a mission
to find the perfect balance one with talents and with wisdom

[HOOK]

Verse 2: J Universal

Yo this girls got my mind half steppin my beats and rhymes
so divine when she speaks i cease to notice time
shes so beautiful and elogant evident of her way
settin precedents with decadence left me in disarray
cause the fact that remains im stuck in a state of play
instead of goin for the action im kinda backin away
her confidence is shining and sort of intimdating
invading my brains spaces on every single occasion - breathe
im dazed and amazed at the way that shes got me feelin
got me lifted to the ceilin im reelin with no appealin
mendin all my broken poems im showin infatuation
for the capitvatin ways of an angel that's on vacation
lemme share your halo, love, we can ease the pain
from the vivid memories of both our hearts takin strain
the darkness you be the flame my art is the key to mine
id probably die happy if you never left my mind

[HOOK]

Verse 3: Keen

This girl from my past has me shook like a snow globe,
my world in a glass, now it's looking like no hope,
in my mind she stays like a song that's stuck in,
my head for days, now it's hard to function,
consuming my thoughts, and disrupting concentration,
often waiting in vain, but she's lost in translation,
now I'm pacing away, just awaiting the day,
to reunite but it feels like I'm wasting away,
I could lay in bed all day n play love songs,
or fight for love, I'm bout to put gloves on,
Even when it hurt she still seemed right to me,
Her love floats like a butterfly n stings like a bee,
When I try to think you quickly complicate my chemistry,
your voice in my head strictly dominates my memory,
Let's conjugate our symmetry, & end the separation,
Or isolate my mind til time ends in desolation
Track Name: "For My Fam" [Original Mix] (prod. by Kkaytoh)
Keen verse 1

This is dedicated to all the people that guided,
Me, down the right path when the road was divided,
Three, minutes ain't enough to say what's inside of,
Thee, heart you've all touched but still I'ma try it,
See, I'm a people person, I always yearned to be,
Free, society's structure ain't concerning me,
Friends, can become your family eventually,
Then, your family can turn into an enemy,
The energy of sympathy and empathy my friends devote,
Is an entity that endlessly keeps my pen provoked,
Sending hope, through hugs love and even fist dap,
Keeping me in line anytime I start to misstep,
I appreciate you all, don't hesitate to call,
If you start to slip I'll be quick to break your fall,
You did the same for me, in turn my life is greater,
To the best of my ability I'll return the favor.


hazey verse 2

whether healthy or I'm hurt up you would help me from my birth up
teaching me the how to's all my values and the worth of,
hard work and modesty reminded me constantly
I treasure that honestly, you kept me out of poverty
was molded like pottery a product of environment
influenced by my friends, and all the girls we tried to get
life is like a prize or gift an essence that you can't measure
peace to all my homies my descendents and my ancestors
you keep me on the path to my goals moving straight forward
never taking orders but agree see you make warmer
of the cold weather or the rain when the days shorter
shout out my Shaolin brothers and my skateboarders
DJ's B-boys, emcees in the thick
and anyone else who plays a musical instrument,
and does it from the heart for the art to be true
everybody in my life, this one goes out to you
Track Name: "All We Got Is Us" [Hazey82 Remix]
Lyrics:

Verse 1:
(Hazey)

"It's inside of me a fire that breaths life it's the light
when I'm blind ta see vibrantly especially in time a peace
we fight amongst each other when there's so much to discover,
no need to act tougher when in fact many suffer
I'm a lover of the nice days fresh air and sunshine
a hammock in the shade on the beach just to unwind
sometimes, I wonder what motivates
the evil in some people was it born or did they grow ta hate
I hold my fate in my own hands with a firm grip
life is a lesson and its one ya better learn quick
heard this before, from my fam and ancestors
it's a sign of peace like a two fingered hand gesture"

hook:

All we got is us, through the rain and the lightning,
the pain can be frightening, crazy this life seems,
To always leave me crushed, put trust in my friends,
cuz all we got is us, through the thick and the thin

repeat

verse 2:
(Keen)

think about the positives more, and the troubles least,
i'm one for peace, every country is a puzzle piece,
made from the same material, in actuality,
we fit together perfectly, every nationality,
is detailed uniquely, and when we're united,
the picture's too beautiful, for words to describe it,
write it cuz I feel it, and I know a change is needed,
our foundation's strong, but the frame is depleted,
your brain i'm bout to feed it, this is food for thought,
believe it that i'm the clarity when the truth's forgot,
undo the noose's knot, drop and take a clean breath,
when your dream's vexed, just follow Keen's steps

hook

verse 3:

mind to the pen to the paper it's the art
when I open up my lips, I open up my heart
though the dark I illuminate to drown the negativity
no evil to my peoples lost ya know I pray ya live through me

Re-writing history, instantly my pen will be,
vividly scripting fresh paths towards victory,
filling in the incomplete, concepts humanity,
keeps overshadowed, it's time to break the canopy

cuz all we got is us when we down and outa luck
we pull thru as a crew we the diamonds in the rough
when we pick up the pieces when we blow away the dust
it our fam its our friends its the love its the trust
Track Name: "Stargazin" feat. J Universal (prod. by Larkz)
Keen verse 1

If life is a race then show me where the start is,
if home is where the heart is are homeless people heartless,
hard times only make you learn a lesson quicker,
then you realize everyone's perceptions differ,
it's time to come together one love one dream,
different color skin but we share the same bloodstream,
money makes the world go round but I don't love cream,
wash the dirt away with sounds until I come clean,
people are deranged focusing on dumb things,
so to make a change I write until my thumb stings,
I won't put the pen down unless I run outta ink,
US to Australia we're teaching you how to link,
humanity ain't dead so don't pour out a drink,
vanity is blinding we need to be proud to think,
practice moderation nowadays the weed is potent,
I stray from the hatred I won't even feed the notion.

J Universal - Verse 2

hazey - verse 3

there's a thin line, between confidence and arrogance
learned the worlds ways from my parents my inheritance
they gave me nutrients that are essential like asparagus
i swear to this it's got me this far the road is perilous
a star like a sheriff gets, above the atmosphere
using words for guidance to survive this when the paths unclear
my actions steer my vessel several levels past my last I'm near
my goals because I practice years, I used to only rap for peers
impacting ears, and minds that be between em
writing rhymes on ancient tablets that you find in a museum,
we be a sign of freedom and life, like a heart beat
J Universal Keen and haze on a Larkz beat
the art speaks to me since an infant I invent
brand new beginnings like sentences I indent
with intense focus overcoming my trials,
and effort on the daily at the very least to smile

hazey verse 1


WonderFlow reppin and Hazey be the name
always do it for the love never see me chasing fame
hate the game make me aim I got an arsenal of rhyme styles
designed to warp your mind change the particles inside while

I represent it properly, never been a novelty
true art is self expression and it's no one else's property
but everyone enjoys it so it makes the world better,
a price you can't measure bringing like minds together

never fresher, effort goes a long way
working with a purpose til all my hair has gone grey
I draw prey into my trap with a decoy
to destroy fakes watch em break like a b-boy

I deploy, thoughts in the form of rhyme
to get into your mind make ya think spark a storm inside
reminiscing back gives me strength to endure the climb
so I conversate with myself from a former time





hazey verse 2


this is the life that I live and I take it in stride
hardly cocky but I'm far from vacant of pride
know a poor man's ideas could be changing the times
others waist high in money high and wasting their lives

show patience of mind, cool and collected
only fools disrespect it they get schooled on some lessons,
the microphone is like a home a tool it's a weapon
but it's peace that I seek speak the truth in it's essence

it's my message, no matter who hears it
whether one or a million myself it's my spirit
in the lyrics if you listen then I'm living in the sound waves
sixteen bars not ounces like a pound weighs

you found Haze, with A June and J Beat
we infused with music and we use it every day week
month year chumps fear enough with making bucks here's
some pure hip hop run it back if you unclear
