Track Name: Falling stars
V1

You mustn't know the battles i've fought before i made my way here
i'll make this clear, i never fear
i blow just like a cannon
I know it weak to loose control of all emotions
I'm overdosing, i'm over flowing on these systems shackles
i've had to tackle, battle demons in my mental state,
not disregarding people in my life who took my trust away
Yea life it fucks ya brain, specially when ya high of cane
drinking all ya sorrows tryna borrow pounds for food tomorrow
It wasn't always this was angel wit dirty face,
to say the least the beast has always got his filthy mitts on you
knowing that he's there and never scared is very beautiful
never loose my vision on a mission that is critical..yea
Older than Biblical my instincts let me know the way
Stronger than chemical this music my breathe away
hanging by a thread and almost dead but damn i gotta say
Music is my life, my life is music
I will never stray..

Chorus
If I should ever loose you
(oh no no)
The stars would fall from the sky
If i should ever loose you
The stars will surely fall from the sky

V2
I feel ya pain its got me thinking i can save you
cos from a very young age i had to be brave too
built up a barrier and never let nobody in
except for hustlers on road yea we were struggling
from broken homes all alone, but we had each other
committing crimes all the time, they were like my bothers
we would get high out our mind and talk that deep shit
so many scared life is hard when your a young kid
fun stealing cars, spitting bars, doing dumbness
have a laugh cussing mums on a bum tip
need to be part a suttn at home we felt like nuttn
i blame my parents for a while, i didn't want the violence
a child alone in silence, was scared to do shit
listening to the cries of my mother and feeling useless
i had to prove this, see i ain't useless
Music is my life support come on lets move this

Chorus

Who was there for me, music was there for me
who was there for me
music was there for me

V3
Nothing ever easy believe me, if its worth having
i search for anything real, its like my worst habit
i search for shit i can feel, without just straight grabbing
i got he gift i heal or i can bring damage
Incredible competitor i cherish the
fact that i compete with myself, theres no one similar
there is no jealousy, i envy no one
i must believe in what do, i can't fear no one
and i posse the mental strength to go against the grain
a brain capacity to think in many different ways
i cant be boxed in, shit who you watching
concentrate on learning from life
i got you sucked in

chorus
Track Name: I Feel ft Emcee Killa
v1

I walk amongst the dead as it seems,
cos half a you asleep
I'm busting at the seams
(I'm filled with life)
But you just bring me grief
Fallen angels sing hypnotic songs
(because they crave my soul)
enlightened like epiphany since birth
I'm child of indigo
A rarity for some to see such passion in a rapping chick
Most of you are hollow living shallow, cant imagine it
Imagine trenching through the depths of hell lost souls are calling you
crave to seek the energy you bring
(forever stalling you)
Dreams reflect the struggle and the leadership that i go through
Amy True, gotta make a difference shed some light on you
Starting in these darkest times, Spark the thought to start ya mind
The flame inside my body rise
Passionate, immaculate, spectacular and damaging
any walls that jeopardise
Natural life and natural laws
Fighting for that natural cause
Life was made for living yours
Full potential, hidden flaws
Genius that opens doors
A spartan chick with no remorse

(Killa)
#And you can tell by the hooks in my veins
Never been shook man, your looks a disgrace
So where's the book's i place?
You only read from the book's of the face
You heard our song for the People?
Living for the dream, so we long to be equal
So lets stand at the top of the steeple
hands in the air, not a bod that's beneath you

(Amy)
#See i been wasting away
Pressured by the lies and a head full a hate yea
(I Feel)
That i need to escape, mentally suppressed
I'm a open these now
(I Feel)
and i feel your not ready
i hope that your ready
I'm a keep bringing realness, I'm a keep bringing yea.. yea

V 2

I treat this all like a game a chess
one wrong move and i'm taking heads,
chalk line fade to death
lay to rest
this specimen of hatred ends
you've got fans cos their following the latest trends
I've no followers, just family you mans pretend
You from the block?
Nah ya hair just stands on end
I make the facts present, the main attraction is blocked by the caps on lenses
So we work with a faction thats global
fuck being local
Pussy's not a touch on my vocal
make those same jokes
take note bait flow
Shut ya cake whole 999 on ya way home
I'm well cultured a man of remorse
Had many dark times and i'm sure you've had yours
is life just a ride in the park of amusement
and cowards must die f they aren't to be human

(Killa)
#And you can tell by the hooks in my veins
Never been shook man, your looks a disgrace
So where's the book's i place?
You only read from the book's of the face
You heard our song for the People?
Living for the dream, so we long to be equal
So lets stand at the top of the steeple
hands in the air, not a bod that's beneath you

(Amy)
See i been wasting away
Pressured by the lies and a head full a hate yea
(I Feel)
That i need to escape, mentally suppressed
I'm a open these now
(I Feel)
and i feel your not ready
i hope that your ready
I'm a keep bringing realness, I'm a keep bringing yea.. yea
Track Name: Growing Up ft a Logic
V1

See i'm a threat to society
quietly i wont take this shit
secret society, silently on the devils tip
i bring variety, open mind no diet shit
i feed my brain with the truth
don't under mind clique
See i'm a Taurus, strong stubborn and loyal i.
hate being around the weak i go mad, my blood boils i,
don't like sheep, unique, im so royal i,
need a strong team that gleams
will have you shouting why,
why!
why's it gotta be like this
suppressed but still blessed,
but still blessed, no rest
i got a tortured soul,
Genius in my ways
smoke haze
i need to gain control
my path and destiny awaits
i'm on a fucking roll!
When i was young
act dumb, a criminal on road
and it was fun for funds, to steal a car or two
robbing drug dealers a bum's
i cuss ya down if you
gimme the look gimme the stare
gimme the glare, i dare you to
open ya mouth and be prepared
i'm from a violent home
Hate to have to take it there
but struggles in my marrow bones
I meditate to the beat
i've learnt a lot from life
and this is where my journey begins
i gotta grow up..Right

Chorus
I was wrong
like back in the day
i used play
led me astray
it was all fun
but i was so dumb
living it up ,not giving a fuck
yea, i was young
like back in the day
i used to play
acting the fool, ooh
i've grown up
See how i have changed,
remember my name for everything good
See i've grown up

V2 ( LOGIC )
I been thorough, i stay thorough
i'm thorough bred
meaning that i've been through the rough is what the word meant
See i'm a wordsmith, blessed with the gift to write verses
but back in the days ha no purpose
Fields affiliated, Man dem choose to hit cages
While i chose to hit the stages
and travel to different places
and now my face is known by different races
instead a catching cases, i'm building a fan bases
its what i gotta do,
see its a numbers game like when i was shott'n food
if i got a track its gotta move my mentality
in actuality it ain't changed, don't be mad at me!
Cos i wouldn't be who i be, if i didn't see
what i saw, when i was young, is what i came to be
everything that i am today
L to da O to da G..I to da C..A to da M to da Y

Chorus
Track Name: Get Out Ghetto ft Big Ben & Big Cakes
Chorus (Amy)

#Step up ya game
Step up ya flow
Stock up ya cash and be ready to go
It's time to leave it's bout to blow
This place is Doomed
Get Out Ghetto x2

V1 (Big Ben)

Ayo Amy,
i wont leave and can't nuttn save me
See izzy dats the borough that my mother raised me
Its mostly a little shit hole if i sum it plainly
But fuck it i gota love it like a ugly baby
If and but or maybe i make it like i lasted
a basket case bastard cradle to casket
Mastered the arts of z's, half's and getting plastered
If ya asking for escape the ghettos give us answers
Some rebel against the hell and end up catching charges
Some harness heavy highs to escape the harshness
Some attend all day classes and work the hardest
Other find it in the faith by paying mams and pastors
Bible quoted, the boat that rides ya soldiers
Others put it in their pipe and smoke it, tryna hold it
Daily quoters avoiding any type a sober
Cos if you ghetto in the ghetto well then you get out where you go to

Chorus (Amy)

#Step up ya game
Step up ya flow
Stock up ya cash and be ready to go
It's time to leave it's bout to blow
This place is Doomed
Get Out Ghetto x2

V2 (Big Cakes)

Chorus (Amy)

#Step up ya game
Step up ya flow
Stock up ya cash and be ready to go
It's time to leave it's bout to blow
This place is Doomed
Get Out Ghetto x2
Track Name: Out The Box ft Nate
V1 (Amy)

See they got us all in stereotypes
another way to segregate our wisdom
Human beings have intelligent minds
But most of us are trapped inside a mental prison
created by a media hype
Making things look cool and like a fool people follow it
Cant you see its dumbing us down
forgetting who we re to be these stars that their showing us, but
#Everyones different but you don't listen, no
You need to step out the box

Chorus
Knowledge is power, oh
knowledge is power, oh
knowledge is power, yea
You need to step out the box
Knowledge is power, oh
knowledge is power, 1,2
knowledge is power, yea
You need to turn off your box

V2
Trapped inside a box with no brain
we remain the same
your comfort zone brings pain, insane cos i really wanna grow
we make our elders ashamed, forgetting culture, the pain
when they lost their freedom got slay
no we wear financial shackles
pumped with this poison called food
controlled by logos with views, that it makes a better us, you
no longer human being
Now your a clone a drone
empty inside and alone
controlled by evil that grows
from a lack of education
#Everyones different but you don't listen, no
You need to step out the box

(Nate)

Chorus
Knowledge is power, oh
knowledge is power, oh
knowledge is power, yea
You need to step out the box
Knowledge is power, oh
knowledge is power, 1,2
knowledge is power, yea
You need to turn off your box
Track Name: For The People ft Emcee Killa
V1
Even though i messing up, i'm still on my grind
i got mad visions in my head that circles round in my mind
relax recline and think about how im gone do it in time
ya know the house the car the kids and hopes a doing alright
awake at night cos its the time for deep reflection in sight
i see the life that could be possible if i just use all my might
this life's a fight but like a contender im here to win it
made mistakes but picked it up, thats why im always grinning
Because..i see the light, like women on her death bed
gasping for some air tryna pull myself through this mess
messy life and bare stress, people talking names shit
what they gonna do for you when government got bare heads
watching you and clocking you just waiting for the right time
always use my right mind, so conscious good at night time
its all designed to incline, the rich stay rich while poor fight
fighting just to live, fighting still just for a fair life

Chorus
In every country theres people
millions of people, the government survives through tax from the people
i only wanna live my life for the people, wanna bring smiles
sing songs for the people
Cos that is all we have left, that is all we have left, that is all we have left..

Every time i use my mind, Life is what i'm exploring
Things will come together in time
if i just use my brain and think!
i would give anything, if you could only understand me
i don't give a damn about nothing else
Progression is all i see

V2 ( EMCEE KILLA)

I sing a song for the colony,
sorrow self pity, good and bad thoughts will follow me
the scares run deep cant get enough sleep
authority will judge a man when he just speaks
when i appear i sketch out all ya smear attempts
never fear my friend i got your back until where near he end
and thats what love can do
it gives ya something new
full use of the heart when you hunt for truth
short fuse, tryna laugh cry like onions
to real to be addressed by assumption
so what you wanna do! ah
i just wanna sit in this town called malice
and turn every mans house into every mans palace
this planets and atrocity
plagued by monopoly
in my world id stamp don white collar robbery
and fight for the proper peace seeking believers
astrology remains the same in each sequence

Chorus
Track Name: Radio ft Jamie Tamil
V1
Gimme a nice delightful, handful a heads who really been through suttn
who fought their way through hell and come back
and really wants to manage, establish fuck practice
only using manners to open the garden gates
that keep us all from living lavish
see im famished like i been malnourished from what the truth is
and listening to this radio has got me in the booth kid
i'm on another frequency from what their tryna tell
most Dj's spinning tracks on the devil
its so controlled and ruthless
creating characters, puppets and products
desires and fears a little catchy hook so ya hooked
tell ya how to think and feel
i'll give you an artistic form of auditory communication incorporating vocal tones, in a structured skill and continuous manner
cos my grammar dont stamma
i magically have an inner light, ready to fight to see a brighter day,
i fight for revolution and evolutions humanitary consciousness.

V2 (JAMIE TAMIL)
I've seen Hel!!l
you wouldn't know what that is
with no arms and legs tied to a petrol stain soaked mattress and a lit match
spine split in half like a KitKat
in pitch black, repeatedly having to hear ya family being tortured and raped
and ready for execution with no solution
knowing that you'll never ever stand the chance of retribution
now thats hell, like life in a cell for suttn you didn't do
death threats witcha mail ya
where hell is
the day yo fell out ya mums cunt
barley a foetus, speaking to satan backwards
about dominating every country on the atlas
You couldn't fathom these thoughts i have em
in sick spasms
and a twisted personality
i'm brutal
So think twice before you call me usual
cos the next time i leave you face down
retarded and paralysed from fucking waste down the waist down
Track Name: You Might Need
V1

You might need a little pick me up
outta luck down and out
some people talking rubbish like its knowledge swings and rounds abouts
college or a life lesson
education elevate, recreate your destiny decided by some demon snakes
my own fate is in my hands
anyway i choose to live!
anyway i choose to give my heart and soul to music, kids!
life is in your hands the futures coming quick, recognise the light you have and use it for that suttn
sicK
Change your minds, change your moods
Change the way you step and move
Always keep it flowing, steady growing
Aint got shit to prove
Never loose.
Only gaining knowledge from experience
reflections from another side, dimensions of this time and space
Reactions of the traumatised tryna live a normal life
Normal like a single mum who sniffs and fucks a million guys
Normal like my house mate smoking crack and sets his room on fire
Never been a liar my desire set our sites higher

chorus
Its a Madness
(you might need)
A little change, yea ee
(you might need)
To stop complaining just re-arrange
(you might need)
A little love for yourself check yourself and your surroundings

V2

I was smoking maybe too much weed
Eating maybe too much meat
Drastically I cut it out but still there was a beast in me
Fire burns my belly churns for anyone controlling me
Expectations high to save the world my guilt was owning me
Living on this privileged land
family in the 3rd world
Parents never silver spooned your looking at a strong girl
Know just what I like and if i like i'll make enough mistakes
If i cannot be me then what indeed im just a damn slave
Raved and misbehaved enjoyed myself friends were family
Always i respect and kept it real i felt their tragedy
Cooking up a healthy meal i know about the alkaline
My trainers made by Nazis but i cant change a lifetime
Theres worse crimes than what i choose to wear im very conscious mate!
Its all about expressing you
Suppressing you
By always feeling angry at anothers view..
Sparking up a joint and eating chicken cos i choose to!

Chorus
