about

We Owe This To Ourselves is the debut album by rapper/producer Tom Fields, executively produced by Michael Tenzyk. The music in this album is as self-aware as can be, but not used as a crutch. It's used as a tool to be able to get others to relate and for them to know they are not alone. Musically the album is hiphop, but with splashes of indie rock all over featuring guitar riffs and atmospheric synths and drums. Lyrically it touches on subjects that others can relate to, such as personal relationships with others, inner-struggles, overcoming tragedy with triumph, amongst other things. This isn't just an album, it is a statement. To quote the final track "Oracle", this is for "everyone who ever felt like something was missing".

Track Name: We Owe This To Ourselves
I can't relate to anyone, i have my own methods
i hate to wait cause waiting sucks i'm always counting seconds
i am wrecking myself, star treking for wealth
worry so much at times that I vanish and go stealth but,
i wouldn't change myself for no one but i
so there's no team on my side, searching for a cleared up mind
i am scrutinized more than anyone i know
i mean maybe it's just me but at least i know i have a soul
you may not all agree with me, but that's not what i'm looking for
i'm proud of myself for dealing with all the previous pain i bore
i get down at times, but not quite nearly as bad as before
still sick of chores, trying to choose nice shoes from the store
down but never out, loud but not simply just part of the crowd
i've seen the rise and fall of kings fighting over the crown oh
how i'd love to have this kingdon as my own
but what would the journey be minus the battle for the throne

rise from the bottom whether you're summer or you're autumn
auto or manual come on you know that you wanna
we let opinion dominion and take control of us citizens
am i the only one that finds that shit so ridiculous?
we all gotta stop bitchin', start trying and truly living
i'm truly givin it my all, rise or fall, no stop or stall
if you wanna get candy pinatas are handy, dreams need to be pursued
someone's gotta break the mold, forget what they're told so why not you
and that girl over there are you aware she wants to tell you something
don't think about your awkward stance, you see her glance don't amount to nothing
i want it all, all for myself, vesuvius it's hot as hell
we're both impossibe souls, we owe this to ourselves.
Track Name: Eyes Wide
How did something get so far?
fireworks going off near the stars
skys so sublime will appear in due time,
tripped down the stairs and now you're scarred,
permanance follows you wherever you go,
at least you tried and now you know,
no time for slo-mo, no photo finish,
no time for loss it's time to win it and get with it,
these trees grew from seeds, so damn fast,
you look back and miss times when you were a little plant,
but the rain came down, loud thunder made a sound,
sprouted from the ground, bound to the soil now,
not as wise as oak yet, but wise enough to be a threat,
don't be a upset, no one knows what they're doing yet,
i like to act my age, youth still exists in my roots,
young and wild i do what i wanna do,
we knew what we got into when we took that risk,
we knew what we've been through when we needed that fix,
i have my whole life to worry about important things,
not planning anything over promise rings,
embrace the age but don't stay the same,
start up the console and just play the game,
you can't put me in a cage, machine against the rage,
i am here now and i'm ready to stay

i got something to say, so i think i'm moving on
but who are you to come through and tell me i'm doing wrong?
i don't, i don't need anything at all, except to hear all the names they call
speak up, i'm next, by the plate on deck,
step up, step up no time at all for rest

ayo, we don't you listen just sink to the bottom,
i have some lifejackets but you just don't want em,
don't say i never tried i held the rope,
cut ties you just wanna give them all a show
the curtain is up so yeah, give them your best
push us all away, yeah, you're dressed to impress
the most depressed can't get it through their heads
that they have the vest to beat the rest
respect's what they need so i'll just lay off
hop inside my spaceship and just take off, to where?
doesn't matter, climbing ladders to beyond
would he start buzzing and get himself to where he belongs?
it's cement to be, written in concrete
smitten with possibility hidden underneath
age is just a number, and i am going pie
and i will never stop like an eight on its side,
don't be a shy guy i gotta go mario in a warpipe, roll the dice
i will never bow, sir, i have my own flowers to attend to at this hour
it's sick how the clock ticks away all the minutes
time is money and this rolex is expensive
new watch alert, eyes on the prize
here i am no need for a diguise

i got something to say, so i think i'm moving on
but who are you to come through and tell me i'm doing wrong?
i don't, i don't need anything at all, except to hear all the names they call
speak up, i'm next, by the plate on deck,
step up, step up no time at all for rest (x2)

trying to hold the base down, no john in this place now
no common names allowed because we are great now
no label on the soup, the minestrone is strong but don't place it in a group
we're thirsty down and dirty disgusting but fully worthy
every man for themselves dodgin steel in this destruction derby
no crash bandicoot cause we are surely swerving
learning from mistakes we made, played it off the keyboard way
it's raining dogs and cats, hail the size of baseball bats
walk back retrace your tracks, i'll race you all the way back
we got it locked, we're not lost, we survived
counting numbers over and over again to stay alive
i am living, i am breathing, look at me now yo looks are deceiving
no copy and paste but keep your eyes glued
mic check one two, stick check those blues
Track Name: Clouds
They tell you to walk the plank into the depths of something bigger than us
what's bigger than trust, there's nothing but dust, rustling around the bend
walking past the dead end road to something untold
with red eyes they hide behind diguises and they ride the success
until they catch their leg in a lie, screaming out now to the sky
thinking what they did was right when they deep down knew about their slight,
but who knows right from wrong, they whistle their song,
and keep in step, to keep in check, to cash their checks
banking out from their lack of substance
i mean, there's nothing wrong with that, but that's not the way i operate
out the gate i'm hunting these sheep, cause no one else is fucking with me
not hiding behind a curtain or sheet, at least i keep it realer than the bloodsuckers with teeth,
no love for the leech
so kick out the wizard of oz, shoot back at the outlaws
they can't cause us to get lost, so we're getting out of the garage
setting up on stage, look at the headlines,
we're all the rage so forget what they say
they hate cause they're waiting in line and that's the price to pay

i'm sorry, that i let you down,
and i'm sorry, that i let you down

soaring through the cloud nine, screaming for the overtime
praying that we spray em with repellant make them jealous that we're sky high,
why'd i, give into things which made me feel spite, can't i just give a blind eye?
i was picked up at the thrift, a gift when she was hurting
a good present but the past came back, delivering a burden
shoved aside for the other guy, that damn lie felt damn nice
our futures out the window kiddo, i brought my sword to a gunfight
she bluntly knifed me out the picture without looking back
questions unanswered, no romance and not even a second glance
but, the fires in my eyes despite losing the fight,
when the other guy tries to fly, i'll intercept his pass in the blink of an eye
you would think that i'd die, but this rover won't roll over
looking out my telescope to see the stars in motion,
emotions rise when i decide i'm headed for the black matter
chitter chatter gathers when i hop inside the orange channel,
thinking of something foreign, somewhere else where i can feel more important,
let's cross the ditch and find the potion, clench or fists and swim this ocean
so who cares now about my whereabouts until i kill the doubts
and shut it down

i'm sorry, that i let you down,
and i'm sorry, that i let you down
i'm sorry, that i let you down
and i'm sorry, that i let you down
Track Name: Eraser
I can't talk to girls without slipping up words
it's absurd how i sway and swerve
nervous like i'm carrying the weight of the world
seconds feel like minutes and i'm so unsure
heart is pounding, do i look nice?
freaking out about everything in sight
i see her smile and the room turns bright
gotta take a shot to see if this feels right
she might like my nervous ticking but i wouldn't know the difference
i might be fine but i don't give myself leverage it's upsetting
don't wanna be lonely, these thoughts they own me
don't wanna sound droning, feeling like explosions
fireworks inside when the chemicals ignite,
just give me some time i'll show you i'm worthy
staring out the window on this train
so many people sitting wishing to never feel the same
we want to change what feels missing cause we're sick of this vacancy
so many different faces in this shuttle but it feels like empty space to me
it's 2012 and i'm underwhelmed,
on board, trying to take the helm
in a different realm, inside of my cave,
where i think about you inside of my headspace,
it kills when i get the chills wanting something vivid,
on a mission to see my vision come true and witness us living together sippin,
anything we want cause it doesn't matter when you're in my prescence
your heart is a weapon shooting me dead, no dread met cuz i let you in
my soul and my body yearn for this,
and if it ends, let me reminicse
about the better things, instead of this,
regret that i get when i'm feeling sick
desiring a fire and flame, to never feel guilt or blame
just tired but never ashamed,
proud of myself, but this isn't what i intended for me
too much time on my own so cold, i know that this won't last forever
for better or worse rehearsing these words to get back to earth and change the endeavor

now i know, the way it goes
i never wanna go and take it slow
cock back and aim my bow
i'm weak at the knees,
fallin' from even the breeze,
stallin' when she's looking at me
she makes the sun look cold and the flowers look like weeds
when she looks at me, i forget how to breathe
so erase me from your notes
you'll be chasing after my ghost
cause i'm dead when she leaves

chasing the eraser, pacing to embrace her
waiting for the perfect time to say, how much that you truly mean to me
i hope that you're feeling the same, what does this mean for the scenery?
how do i deal with the pain? i know that i'm living cause it's just killing me
biting my tongue out of anxiety
my shotgun mouth is kept on safety, safely proctecting and neglecting,
misdirecting my intentions make it look like i'm ignoring you lately
my goddamn actions are consistently lacking traction
so i'm missing my taxi
the one that's supposed to bring me closer to you
and i don't know what to do
chasing complicated things make it interesting
no one's attracted when it's too easy
things can be backwards and afterwards it's all deceiving
we bleed our feelings on our sleeves
the way she's breathing is misleading, i don't know how to read it
why can't we see what's really right or wrong for us?
everyone's a suspect, no one goes above
everything's either tragic or magic inside this modern love
just let me have your affection, the kind to keep me fine for months

now i know, the way it goes
i never wanna go and take it slow
cock back and aim my bow
i'm weak at the knees,
fallin' from even the breeze,
stallin' when she's looking at me
she makes the sun look cold and the flowers look like weeds
when she looks at me, i forget how to breathe
so erase me from your notes
you'll be chasing after my ghost
cause i'm dead when she leaves (x2)
Track Name: These Notes
Been here for far too long, overstayed my living spree
cutting off my leash, a getaway is not too far from me
every time i'm out of sight, they try to drag me in
it's nesting a dragon's den, try to keep with thick skin
nineteen on the scene leaning on abilities
fidelity with melodies i scream at a jealous king
they can have anything while i'm out here suffering
in a web that is buffering, worldwide i am wondering
is this race really worth running out here aimless with no trainer?
then again forget alliances when you're hungry as a lion is
improvements so smooth, skating rails on some flyer shit
racking up some stats, take track like Elias is
is this worth the wait? we don't wanna make the same mistakes
is it as golden and great when on the other side of the gate?
their estates may look extravagant right next to a lake
but if you look beneath the surface, our issues are the same

driftin all the way back home,
seeing which way to go, these roads
who knows which direction
i just know that i can show you these notes (x2)

plain and simple, fires kindle out of desire
come on take me higher, come on take me higher
i won't fight it no more, i won't spite it for sure
what's past is behind us and i need it now more than ever before
so what's ever in store, endeavors with something better
let it rain, ignore the pain, embrace the weather
paradise when i close my eyes
head out the window when i take that ride
laid back in the driver seat
shes riding with me on the passengers side
so i clear my mind, open to find new ways to travel
judges with gavels, they try to make my bones rattle
but if you're sick of my ligaments, you will get over it
find yourself a new whip, get out of my dealership
currensy seems to be king but it doesn't mean a thing to me
it's nice and all to feel so tall but in the end who's gonna make me see?
that it's not so bad, this planet that we have
take me off this land and show me the unsettling sea

driftin all the way back home,
seeing which way to go, these roads
who knows which direction
i just know that i can show you these notes (x2)
Track Name: Glass Ceiling Feat. Michael Tenzyk and Christopher Paul
(Tom Fields):
Crash landed, hand stampin'
walkin in the venue to see who's standing
i counteract their play like granite
cool as day, when i grab the magnet
attracted when i see it, a body of a golden goddess
honest to god i lost it when she had it locked inside the pocket
no control i overdose, it's overdone and i'm going numb
fleeting eyes but she's cheating whe she pulls me out from down below
drippin' in my veins, is the feeling of an IV
a potion and a poison, it controls me quite nicely
too groggy and i'm sloppy confused by the lghting
not the ceelo roll i needed so i'm feeling quite dicey
a hospital bed, she said that i need my rest
fell off the stage when i saw her face and hit my head, that's so intense
it takes time to heal, but i don't wanna stand still
that would destroy until it kills, i'm scared as hell
but the story is untold, against the trade winds i sail
off into the breeze i wanna see this world now

(Christopher Paul):
glass ceiling, price ceiling
your ceiling, time ceiling
nine ceiling, five ceiling
your ceiling, my ceiling
and i, and i see right through it
imma break, imma break that plaster
break my fist right through it (x2)

(Michael Tenzyk):
Everyday we're half awake, we hit the brakes on what's at stake
the give and take of everyday is leading to a slow decay
i'm checking out, givin up, unless you finally let me in
i'm waiting on your doorstep, yes i'm waiting on your doorstep
and the world is spinning, but it doesn't spin as fast as me
don't ever fake a feeling, i think everyone is acting pleased
the reasons that they gave us, were all trite and soaked in apathy
the seasons left us fiending for anything that would help us breathe
and don't think too much, don't even try and understand
cause all that contemplation is enough, enough to break a man
and all this aching aching won't be cured just from a helping hand
i make mistakes but it's okay, cause i accept what is my fate
and i have no right to complain, but it's so hard not to
i have no right to place blame, but it's a simple excuse
contentment can be won, and i am losing the game
if it's darkest before the sun rises then i'll take the light in vein

(Christopher Paul):
glass ceiling, price ceiling
your ceiling, time ceiling
nine ceiling, five ceiling
your ceiling, my ceiling
and i, and i see right through it
imma break, imma break that plaster
break my fist right through it (x2)

(Christopher Paul):
You know i heard you've been on the strip talkin' shit
don't know what to think,
but i've been thinking regardless and it's getting to be the hardest, hailing cabs to get from a to b from seeing you sail out to sea from me
yes, in hopes to wipe the slate clean
from these light beams, shooting me out into the future
looser stars break free, yes, i'm bursting in seams from earth
to the galaxy, imagine a birth of a universe with the sun replaced by high beams,
shooting from skylights in your dining room
choose to try putting it behind and see what you'll find
aligned from c to d which brings us back to a and b
short for you and me, airplanes and barebones
start a new life, flinestones, stick and bricks
while we build new homes, maybe start things off better than we have been lately,
that is until technology catches up with us then comes distrust
so then we'll shoot out again to start life on another star
Track Name: Can't Break You In Feat. Mike Dautner
(Tom Fields)
Indecisive between being a saint or a crisis
i got these vices, it's all poisoned like the ricin
when the nicest go numb, it's a hard tally to sum
you either go and run, or you look for some guidance
the light from above is so snug when it hugs
but it sucks when you're stuck from under the rug
the comfort zone is nice at first, it feels alright it's well rehearsed
but in the end it only hurts, stuck in your old luck
i try to break free from routine when thoughts get mean
no cautious feet, not checking both sides of the street
i spit my fucking heart out, seen it from the shark's mouth
the jaws of life opened up so please let me breathe
i bleed what i fight for, pride on my sleeve
all their eyes are green, goblins on the scene
i'm searching for the goblet, i'm being honest when i say i'm gone
into the city with colors so pretty and streets so gritty, no sleeping at all
and buildings so tall, they build you up to see you fall
i'm not having that attack, so fall back i'm building up my walls
at night i'm afraid to swim, but i'm feeling different than usual
previously i was drowning but found myself in waves i listened to

(Mike Dautner)
I've lost count of the times i've tried
these voices they get so loud in my mind
i've done everything i've possibly can
but i can't break you in
i can't break you in

(Tom Fields)
I'm concerned about these third degree burns
but if you never touch the stove, how you ever gonna learn?
keeping fickle through the ferns, swingin down them vines
blueprint in my sleeve ready for design
passions in my heart, but the money's on my mind
or my lack of the paper but i'm still giving fives
the money tree's the notebooks where i write my lines
kindly step aside sir, my words need time to shine
never alone in the ocean together we swim
i'd give my left limb for anything involving you
so what to do, what to see, perfect score, three hundred please
from bowling alleys to grammy's and designer suits
pressure's building on the dam, no one knows who i am
lectures all the time, i'm just ready to start new again
renewing plans, i knew it man, chances are brewing damn
piano keys, this is grand, by the beach no head in sand
yellow stop lights serve no purpose, so worthless
cause i'm flirting with danger, no stranger to this rush
not always perfect but so worth it, you're never worthless
that's for certain, undetermined like such and such
i know what you're feeling i've felt it before
hidden away, under the floor
settle the issue and even the score
fuck what they think, it's all yours
it's all yours, let it be, from coast to coast, sea to sea
never alone, you and me
me and you, plural we

(Mike Dautner)
I've lost count of the times i've tried
these voices they get so loud in my mind
i've done everything i've possibly can
but i can't break you in
i can't break you in
Track Name: Kenshin Feat. Sho'nuff
(Tom Fields)
Fighting with trampolines, writing with kerosene
thinkin bout how i'm livin while searching for different scenes
so what's it gonna be, looking down, looking out this view
who knew what we'd get ourselves into
never done, never gone
never out, never lost
and i am never lost
never

I got that double edged blade, it's either save yourself or join us
vice grip ready, hold steady, and point it to the sky
it smells of bloodshed tonight, spiteful enemies gather
rather not resort to violence but they won't let me by
so only one can rise, to the matter and survive
shatter doubt from the inside, i bid you a goodbye
starting off with a lofty mentality the battling begins
rattling the wind, tension so thick i cut it like a limb
they said my chances were slim, they looked at me grim
but my skull reaped benefits from elements within
grinning at their remarks, silly rabbit i'm an elephant so big
didn't begin with elegance or relevance, still searching thick and thin
never standing still, wandering from place to place
chasing my own shadow and those of the greats
these are the moments where i find the components of my journey
where i have to own it, and show them that i'm worthy

(Tom Fields)
Fighting with trampolines, writing with kerosene
thinkin bout how i'm livin while searching for different scenes
so what's it gonna be, looking down, looking out this view
who knew what we'd get ourselves into
never done, never gone
never out, never lost
and i am never lost
never

(Sho'nuff)
Yeah i'm Sho'nuff, most people say i'm crazy
well i've got adhd, that could be it maybe
before i get into it, i got something i should say
since haters gonna hate, my swagger's "have a good day"
and i be on that other shit, so i don't care what they say
never die, multiply, like this kid belongs to bay bay
if you got a nerdy girl, well you should watch your chick
i rescue her down under, she's fiending for disney dick
they call me mr. rude, mr inconsiderate
well, i don't give a shit, you niggas made me this
i'm coming out my shell like a ninja turtles skinny dip
they call me raphael cause i'm liable to flip
so while i'm on this track, i'm just being mii
and all these different voices, they're just different mii's
well i've got mini-mii's, i see you hating see
cause you know that i'm more me then you could ever be
AH

(Tom Fields)
Fighting with trampolines, writing with kerosene

so what's it gonna be, looking down, looking out this view
who knew what we'd get ourselves into
never done, never gone
never out, never lost
and i am never lost
never

Unusual and beautiful the world can be
it is yours of course, doors closing and opening
focusing on means to succeed, clearing out the smokescreens
wishing on ambition, throwing out notions of "woe is me"
poetry, free as anyone could be
lucky as hell that equipment is recording me
things are not always what they seem
but i'm good, so i'm fine right? just gotta believe
hard times arise, it's tragic, but don't be ashamed to cry
everyone is victim, you're lying if you think otherwise
so it's not surprise while crafting out your storyline
if you miss the bus or you miss the signs
you're not finished this time

Never done, never gone
never out, never lost
i am never lost
never
Track Name: Phantom Hands
Strange that, there's that chance we don't survive
i'm not colorblind, you know it happens all the time
life can change in the blink of an eye
so i'll keep my eyes open to avoid it this time
life can chance in the blink of an eye
so i'll keep my eyes open to avoid it this time

Set off the flare, despair is apparent
they all like to stare, others affairs are their talents
you think it's rosy till they smell your scent
big noses going for your broken fence
through the forcefield we feel the wind chill
and it's cold as cement, we don't wanna deal with this
social acceptance is a weapon if you don't get it
so when i said it, there's no room to edit
which means i meant it,
and it's a menance when you don't who your friends is
cavities dug without a dentist and it's wrecked and finished
burning donuts on the freeway
what we say has weight and it's going through the windshield fucked over in each way,
when i hear you speak, the cymbals smash
documenting how we coped with the crash
how i coped with the path i chose and now i know to never get my hopes up, so here we go

Strange that, there's that chance we don't survive
i'm not colorblind, you know it happens all the time
life can change in the blink of an eye
so i'll keep my eyes open to avoid it this time
life can chance in the blink of an eye
so i'll keep my eyes open to avoid it this time

Look at what you made me do
i saw it through with a wrecking crew
i would never go disrespecting you
but why would i try when you wouldn't try too?
and i know you cry with eyes so blue
what am i gonna do that it's different now?
what's different is everything that i've written down
i'm going through the motions of the ocean all it does is spit me out
time wasted, basket casing
put you on a pedastal wasn't cool to watch you fall from grace and
embrace the crash, with the aftermath, leaving back an avalanche
standing in a panic, i can't stand it
i do love you so, but i have to let you go
i'm damaged and it left me baggage but i know
life can change in the blink of an eye
so i'll keep my eyes open to avoid it this time

Strange that, there's that chance we don't survive
i'm not colorblind, you know it happens all the time
life can change in the blink of an eye
so i'll keep my eyes open to avoid it this time
life can chance in the blink of an eye
so i'll keep my eyes open to avoid it this time


Life can change in the blink of an eye
so i'll keep my eyes open to avoid it this time
life can change in the blink of an eye
so i'll keep my eyes open to avoid it this time
Track Name: We're Not Going To Vegas
i'll make it worth your while
your head will be spinning soon
zero gravity, sitting alone in a filled in room
no need to be ashamed of me
i'm only here to provide tranquility
so please let me help you
i hate it when you say, "this stress is killing me"
let's get together, it goes without saying
you need me, and i'd love to help
so together let us ease the pain


Standing at the ledge, the image is in your head again
a nosedive to the ground, that pick me up is not your friend
but it clears your conscience, and no one is watching
blurred vision, swerve living, it's lust driven and it's far from quiet
speakers boomin loud, bass powering the sound
you feel it in your chest, plus she's feeling you know
novacaine to the bullshit she's waiting for a crown
cause she's going for the king, and he's ready to get down
the party keeps going, her clothes are melting off
alone in that private loft no one can tell right from wrong
no emotion just physical contact, no personal contract just in it for that combat,
nowhere else to belong, nowhere else to belong
a whole generation covered in a cloud of smoke
natives to the party scene ready to let go
drowning out their problems with some liquor and they row
going down the river with nowhere else to go


Push all the worrying aside
just a few more and i'll be fine
blank conversations fill the empty spaces
won't stop til i feel faceless
here's to those nights i couldn't sleep
here's to those things i'll never be
for all the love i couldn't see
won't let my mind take over me


Decisions made and promises broken, here's a token of my patience
they'yre dedicated to a joke, and laugh when they take the medication
medicated and underappreciated, jaded so they burn it slow
hating others paintings so they make their own
the everyday chains bring you everyday pain so they nurse it with that drank,
no one else will call
to the occassion to make us stop bracing for that anxious feeling
throwing out the hand that it constantly tries to deal us
everyone's addicted, i said everyone's addicted
misfits, but gifted, who the hell in 2012's gonna listen?
so go alarm the town it's missing
what's missing? a mission. what's missing? affection, directions, and visions,
let the music take over your soul, it controls us all
put you in a zone and trance where you feel so tall
everyone's on drugs, whether it's a substance or feeling
it's just a matter of who actually gets past the glass ceiling
Track Name: Mountains
so much trouble, can't shake that spirit
fear steps in and quakes what's missing
i'd listen but i can't quite always hear myself
tick tick tick the clock won't stop
the flame wasn't told to quit
now i cannot drop drop drop
i roll outta bed, check my phone to no messages
no bottle sent to shore so i explore everywhere and anything looking for an x on the map,
treasure in the sediment, give me the gold so it's known that i did good on this experiment,
gimme something nice and delicate

I've been afraid for far too long
with no idea what i've been running from

Shut your mouth
look at your anthill and then stomp it out
stop making mountains out of something small
we want it all so let's go get it now, let's get it now
like, goddamn, he never knows what flows in front of him
on a whim, he's out of it,
drowning in his sorrow like there's no tomorrow
the bottle of jack will set you back
too many shots from the cannon make you hollow
swallow your pride, open your eyes wide, follow your stride
why do we miss what was never ours?
spending hours wondering how we'd ever get our time restored, bored with chores,
fist through the wall with your face on the floor
imaginary stumbles buckle us into struggles
hit the reject, take the eject, no more sweat over the false pretenses
us humans are beautifully flawed, but easily awed
the conventional laws lets break them that keep us trapped inside of them cages,
within our minds next time we'll give them a battle for the ages
taking out the spaceship, to make the history pages
Track Name: Oracle
The years go by, we try and we try to not fall of the ledge and wreck our necks,
respect comes and goes with different antics
hidden feelings in the attic. we're spilling out this mess
wrapped in ideas of us, and how we must see this all through
she told me she does believe in rooms that let us breathe and not be setback by their news,
who knew we'd make it this far, a bit jaded and jarred
but still shading the stars, still sleeping in cars
finding where to land, consequences are make and break and give and take,
it's danger or staying at the start
i think i'd rather play with fuses than remain losing out on something large

I don't want to paint inside the lines
i don't wanna worry about the wasting of time
i don't wanna stay inside man made confines
let's forget what they taught us and create our tribe
all they wanted was a bribe, to take what was rightfully yours
to hold the lock and key to restrain you from the doors
the ones which led to bliss admist the reality we exist in
i'm breaking the walls in
they can't break my thick skin
dodgin shots at the dome with james kennedy i roam
no grassy knoll, we don't slow our roll, we patrol these grounds and aim for thrones,
and maim our foes, these lames are slow
bringing down the house and we break their flows
earthquake the globe, osmosis jones cause i know what it means to be so hot and cold,
we can never let them mistake our goals, we break the mold
and slave for shows, and paint the sky to make us glow
i'm at my best when it's not rehearsed, not thinking about those cursive words,
i curse those verbs that make us hurt
it's not always about who gets it first, we sic the birds on the early worm
it could be worse, i hope all my friends remain safe
they help me get right through the day
my parents too along with my siblings, i'm building something better with each letter and the passing minutes,
this is for everyone who ever felt like something was missing.
