Track Name: Like Weeds
It's just science
And I been fee fi fo fum-ing
They don't see me as a giant but can hear me coming
Keep the fire on the iron, I'm the means to function
Eat it up kids, I know it's on some ill production
It's just science
And I been fee fi fo fum-ing
They don't see me as a giant but can hear me coming
Keep the fire on the iron, I'm the means to function
Eat it up kids, I know

It's been a long while and I been a bit unreachable
Been working for the benefits to pedestal my people tho
Beat banging heavy, heady, headed up
On a deeper note, been diving toward Posiden
But remind myself that I need to float
I need an anecdote
I need to needle, pick, and poke
Indeed elite
I speak discreet sequences and in secret code
Seek the key but never find it
Man I need to know the reasons all behind it
Don't be blinded by the afterglow
Seed and sew
See the meaning change and grow
E-V-O-L-V-E
Everybody switching roles
Everybody shifting goals
And everybody tryina float
The loosest lips are sinking ships, shot safely from the coast
Couple close calls or you could switch it, call it near misses
Makes no difference when you talking about what something isn't
Isn't it funny the way that it all seems to work tho?
Why people always want to cut down what they can't grow?

Can't grow, can't grow, can't
Why people always want to cut down what they can't grow?
Can't grow, can't grow, can't
Why people always want to cut down what they can't grow?
Can't grow, can't grow, can't
Why people always want to cut down what they can't grow?
Can't grow, can't grow, can't
Why people always want to cut down what they can't grow?

It happens to the best of us tho
The answers stay fresh but the problem is old
It's all in the fold
DNA's all in the code
I'm all in, all wins, the lining is gold
Arrival unknown
More room for me to explode
More space to occupy
More places to go
It's all about a balance
And sometimes taking it slow is the one thing I need
But can't keep it controlled
No grip
Nah, I got no hold
But I still hang tight
Type to ride out the road
Get deep with the speech, teeth bite to the bone
Beat bringing benefits from the seeds that were sewn
Don't know no difference between branching and growing
It's a broke down system that we calling our home
It is what it is
Ain't what it ain't
And I been wishing for a minute we could get a little rain

Can't grow, can't grow, can't
Why people always want to cut down what they can't grow?
Can't grow, can't grow, can't
Why people always want to cut down what they can't grow?
Can't grow, can't grow, can't
Why people always want to cut down what they can't grow?
Can't grow, can't grow, can't
Why people always want to cut down what they can't grow?
Track Name: Get Up
Raising the bar
Catching a buzz
Taking the parts
That making it up
The tick and the tock of the clock has got a particular method for picking it up
The bigger the bump
The bigger the jump
The bigger the winnings, I'm building it up
Been in a slump? Yup
Well it's time to get up
So get up (get up)
Get up (get up)
Come on man, it's time to get up
Get up, get up
Yeah, get up
It's time to get up

I never knew that it could be like this
Thought that I'd be down at the bottom but the seesaw tipped
I'm feeling great now
With the birds eye view
Seeing a few more hues than I'm used to
Used to lead to big banging booms like a fuse do
Probably why they used to call me the confused youth
Bruised hoofs walking too much
Now talking too much
And if we getting down to sediment, am I rocking too much?
Don't answer
Why?
It don't matter
I'ma be climbing the ladder whether you're kind with the banter
Or they treat mine as cancer cuz I pay no mind to the latter
Ain't trying to catch that data
That's management added that I don't need
No
Don't want
No
But sometimes it's hard just to let it all go and not read into it
And wonder what the motivations was
Deep down I know I'm probably doing what they wish they was

Raising the bar
Catching a buzz
Taking the parts
That making it up
The tick and the tock of the clock has got a particular method for picking it up
The bigger the bump
The bigger the jump
The bigger the winnings, I'm building it up
Been in a slump? Yup
Well it's time to get up
So get up (get up)
Get up (get up)
Come on man, it's time to get up
Get up, get up
Yeah, get up
It's time to get up

You need to get up so you're ready for the get down
How you gonna make a difference if you always sitting down?
Ain't doing none of that pound for pound rap
I'm out here trying to make enough bread for my fam with daps on the side
Like the large?
What was that?
Would you like to go large?
Yeah, supersize that absolutely
Switching up the routine
The same scene gets boring quick when the flick keeps looping
Trying to keep it moving
Even the nine to fivers
Yo I know it stays grueling when demand outweighs supplies
I've been there, done that
Still there, no cash
Pockets stay empty
While the bills stay stacked
If ya get it, throw your hands up like Ipecac
Let me see them palms like I'm maxing in a desert flat
Never that, more a bivouac type cat
Not typecast, cast tight
Keep it ironclad

Raising the bar

So get up (get up)
Get up (get up)
Come on man, it's time to get up
Get up, get up
Yeah, get up
It's time to get up
Track Name: Always
I been always, always, always, always
Trying to get away, get away, get away, get away
I been always, always, always, always
Trying to get away, get away, get away, get away

But now I'm not moving
Yeah, I stopped running
Top down improvements
And propped up the front end
I'm not locked to nothing
Nah, I'm free and I love it
I been walking figure eights
While trying to figure the numbers
Been in a bit of slumber but now my eyes are opened up
Been a bit of a puzzle but now the holes are closing up
Close enough
Ain't gonna cut it this round
Because the ammunition's limited
And taking us down is gonna take it all
Take everything we've got
Take aim and wait for the moment
But don't let the proponent lock you in one spot
One frame of mind
We not obligated to follow one train of thought
Opted out so long ago don't think I remember the way back
Fought to feed the mouths no thought of the apex
Lost but feeling found
Property of patience
A lot to leave now cuz it's been bringing my faith back

I been always, always, always, always
Trying to get away, get away, get away, get away
I been always, always, always, always
Trying to get away, get away, get away, get away
Track Name: Held Back
We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Need a little bit of space so we can figure where to go
We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Never thought I'd hit a point I wanted time to move slow
We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Need to get rid of the clock cuz those hands, they hold
We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Trying to get, get going but they wont let go

We all need a little time and space
A little pocket to call our own and start making some change
Not making it rain unless you see me dancing on stage
Those the moments time stops
Freezing the frame
Easy to blame
A game we all fall prey to
You can't be a new you without talking the prelude
Option to make moves
Time changes everything
One day I'll be cool
Till then obscurity
Assuredly so, at least in currency notes
Cuz the majority of folks want it simple and slow
I say so (so) long (long)
And maybe see em down the road
And move (move) on (on)
Not sure how much time I hold
But I go (go) long (long)
Trying to catch that pass
Wanna hit that zone
Gotta jump that gap
Gotta skip that zone
Gotta break that path
Gonna pick that bone
And it's been known, it's been wrote
We need time, but time is a joke

We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Need a little bit of space so we can figure where to go
We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Never thought I'd hit a point I wanted time to move slow
We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Need to get rid of the clock cuz those hands, they hold
We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Trying to get, get going but they wont let go

I wont let go either
And I suggest you do it to death till death come reap ya
This old household creature
With a case of the cold face features
Whole procedure doesn't seem it should be boiled down to a single cut
But guess what?
What?
Best of luck against that Mac truck
I ain't lacklust or backing up
I just back it up
Cracking up while I write it down
Left packing stuff
Track it bumps
Gotta pack a punch
Lot of absent lunch
Wobble with a light head
Headed to the ambulance
Damage is done
The damage is done
And I can see it panoramic, camera candid and blunt
Abandoning fun ain't how advantage is won
Never know when it's your time so get down till it's up
I said abandoning fun ain't how advantage is won
Never know when it's your time so get down till it's up
Till it's up
Till it's up

We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Need a little bit of space so we can figure where to go
We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Never thought I'd hit a point I wanted time to move slow
We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Need to get rid of the clock cuz those hands, they hold
We need time to grow
Need time to grow
Trying to get, get going but they wont let go

Let go
Let go
Let go
Let go
Track Name: Can't Stop
Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Every time I try man, I just get lost
Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Started at the bottom but ain't worried bout the top
Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Try to take a break but end in deep thought
Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Creating while I'm kicking
Yeah, it's everything I ever fought for

But what you even know about me?
I be the _____
Fill in the blank, ad libbing at ease
And at least try and remember that it's only a lease
And even once the beast is off of the leash
I'm gritting teeth
Throwing heat
Speaking Greek
Leave em tweaked like a rooted phone
Confusing everyone around me and end up alone
Use the microphone to magnify voice
But use the magnifying glass to pass one option as choice..What?!
Huh uh
We gotta back up, zoom out
Undo, new round
Come to, two down
Two feet, new ground
The concrete cools down
But it's our fault the asphalt leads to nowhere town (damn)
So don't get it confused
But if you get it, let me know
It's not a popular view
Gained a few new haters through the course of this song
But I ain't mad or even angry, I'm just plugging along

I Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Every time I try man, I just get lost
Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Started at the bottom but ain't worried bout the top
Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Try to take a break but end in deep thought
Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Creating while I'm kicking
Yeah, it's everything I ever fought for

And even if I wanted to, I couldn't
Embedded is my pull to you, the reason that I'm pushing
Easing into multi-tasking
Writing while it's in production
Gotta have the object before assigning functions
Get it?
Cuz if not you're gonna have to go
We keep it fresh up on the surface with the cleanest code
Can call me CEO
And call me anytime
Can't guarantee that I can answer with this many lines ringing off the hook
Plays ain't by the book, you knew tho
Story line is flimsy, barely sketching out a doodle
It's cruel yo, the way that I be working fingers to the bone
It's more than elbow grease, my shoulder slick and wrist is soaked
They say it's braggadoc
Can call it what they want
They talk about a lot but never do their fucking job
I been out grinding trying to make some use of overtime
But over time I've realized, to grind it out's to be alive

Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Every time I try man, I just get lost
Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Started at the bottom but ain't worried bout the top
Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Try to take a break but end in deep thought
Can't stop
And I just can't stop
Creating while I'm kicking
Yeah, it's everything I ever fought for
Track Name: Go For That (ft. Thesis, Kid Presentable!!!, Kserious)
Lemme start it with a quick breath, inlet
Ingest before I let it exit and exist
Let this get you on a pretzel neck twist
Wreck shit
Secondary soldiers of the sickness
So cough cough
Cuz we half way in
Stay focused on the motives till the physical end
The miserable trend
The typical blend
The cynical bends
It's all Bezier everyday, no defense
Makes no sense
Breaks bones best, and that's life
Postpone picking up the pace and lose twice
It's too nice
Two dice, throw em
Eat ya pie slice
Keep on growing
Going knowing that the lifeline stops
Line tied in knots in the meantime
Seems to be the sequel but the sequence it out of line
Time and time again climbing out the grime, fresh
Making the most of every minute and moment I get

You wanna get that?
You gotta go for it
Don't wanna get stuck in the past?
Then move forward
Move towards it
Break out of the orbit
The same circles got you cycling to forfeit
You wanna get that?
You gotta go for it
Don't wanna get stuck in the past?
Then move forward
Move towards it
Break out of the orbit
The same circles got you cycling to forfeit

Till we flux with the next one
We gotta flux with the next one
Till we flux with the next one
We gotta flux

You wanna get that?
You gotta go for it
Don't wanna get stuck in the past?
Then move forward
Move towards it
Break out of the orbit
The same circles got you cycling to forfeit
You wanna get that?
You gotta go for it
Don't wanna get stuck in the past?
Then move forward
Move towards it
Break out of the orbit
The same circles got you cycling to forfeit
You wanna get that?
You gotta go for it
Don't wanna get stuck in the past?
Then move forward
Move towards it
Break out of the orbit
The same circles got you cycling to forfeit
You wanna get that?
You gotta go for it
Don't wanna get stuck in the past?
Then move forward
Move towards it
Break out of the orbit
The same circles got you cycling to forfeit
You wanna get that?
You gotta go for it
Don't wanna get stuck in the past?
Then move forward
Move towards it
Break out of the orbit
The same circles got you cycling to forfeit
You wanna get that?
You gotta go for it
Don't wanna get stuck in the past?
Then move forward
Move towards it
Break out of the orbit
The same circles got you cycling to forfeit
