about

This is an album I've been working on for the past year with the producer Baby Bean. The album is about all kinds of things really, but the main concept behind it and the name, comes from the fact that people usually say "I just like the beat, I don't listen to the lyrics". Your main conscience may be saying that, but the subconsciousness is soaking it all in, and its pretty obvious that people live out whats in the lyrics these days, especially in hip hop. A genre with an emphasis on poetry and lyrics, we better make sure the words are worth listening to. of course, the music goes hand in hand with the words, when a hip hop song marries the right melody and rhythm with the right words, its an incredibly powerful thing, and there is not enough of it in the genre. So the title is me, telling to do just that, listen to the words, hear me out. Some songs are fun, some are personal, some are political, but most of all, its whole purpose, my greatest purpose for rapping in the first place, is to bring you to the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that's why I do this, and hopefully, when you listen to the words on this album, its will lead you to listen to THE WORD

Track Name: What Heaven Will Bring
1 If nothing on this earth will fulfill me

1 and all ecstasy leaves me empty

2even down deep in my soul

2my desires and addictions just leave me cold

3then may I unfold, my conclusion

3one made by the late great C. S Lewis

4which is, I was made for another world

4we play in the mud but were made to be pearls

5 so all these girls selling their bodies

5 all the grown up boys living life as a hobby

6 all the decadence death decay and destruction

6 suffering, our inability to function

7 the something missing from our existence

7 you can get the answer from your local Christian

8 Its Jesus Christ, the way to heaven

8 and when I get there here's what I imagine



and the angels sing, just one thing that heaven will bring

so forget about material things, cuz they just wont match what heaven will bring

and the angels sing, just one of the things that heaven will bring

so forget about material things, cuz they just wont match



1 I can only imagine the imagery

1 as my imagination begins to see

2 beauty, tapestries of design

2 advertisement sines gone from your sight

3 the light as it shines bright even night

3 got the best fireworks taking flight

4 High def infinite resolution

4 with no time so there's no conclusion

5 to the colorful kaleidoscope

5 is beyond dope, cant describe the hope

6 everlasting laughing with fascinating

6 creative works of painting and shading,

7 all the art forms and every culture

7 perfected with Jehovah the sculptor

8 this a reminder cuz where near sighted

8 if ya no your going, come on get excited



and the angels sing, just one thing that heaven will bring

infinity chillin' in spring, paradise life giving water springs

the angels sing, just one thing that heaving will bring

infinity chillin' in spring, paradise life





1 So who you gonna bring? While ya on this earth

1 all persons have worth even after hearse

2 the worst case scenario is for those

2 who feel God's grace and still say no

3 and you cant change em, you can save em

3 Its the Spirits job, and sorry you ain't him

4 just love them no matter how they're lying

4 and just like God, respect their decision

5 imprisoned in a comfortable castle

5 a boat with no paddle, herded like cattle

6 ain't worth the hassle, life is too short

6 search for the truth and open the door

7 ya got more in store then whats on channel 4

7 The Bible's a book that’s worth it to explore

8 and the evil force that wants you in hell

8 tell the devil he was doomed the day that he fell



and the angels sing, just one thing that heaven will bring

you got golden rings? Up there, those are toys from bubble gum machines

and the angels sing, just one thing that heaving will bring

and hey, did ya hear those bells ring? that a boy clearance you got your wings

and the angels sing, just one thing that heaven will bring

to finally be with the trinity, living with God in Harmony

and the angels sing, just one thing that heaven will bring

eternally being loved by the king, and loving him back what a beautiful thing

7 God given He's making it better

8 by infusing our work with purpose

Track Name: The Need To Rhyme
1 I Just felt the need to sit down and rhyme

1 write my thoughts recite them in time

2these lines, just had to get out my head

2MCs ya'll feeling what I just said

3 the academics and uptight square cats

3think all rap is all a bunch of Horse crap

4sorry man, I guess you lose

4some of us are like modern day Langston Hughes

5inner city blues evolution of poetry

5 voice as a drum pad kinda like a 1 2 3

6 this grew on me, saw the possibilities

6english endless uses infinity

7incredibly radio plays the bad rap

7giving hip hop in general, a bad rap

8thats sad man, wasn't a rap fan

8till I diged the planets mixing it with Jazz and

9 found Christians with similar quality

9inspired me and the bars flew out of me

10now a part of me, nothing fake

10got a rap name but that’s just for the stage

11what I say is what I'm really thinking

11free from weed, Prozac or drinking

12reeping what I sow in the spirit

12when God speaks write down what I'm hearing

13no universal man up stairs

13Jehova-Jireh Jesus, the gift of air

14and that’s who I rep, and if ya hate that aspect

14sorry kid, I couldn't care less

15I'll take the stress of being seen

15as a religious corny Jesus MC

16no strings attached, Christ set me free

16but I see the majority in slavery

17fake reality, never saw the sun

17just sitting in the cave calling shadows fun

18munching blue pills, emotion and thrills

18the illusion of up but its really down hill

19ill in the sick sense, not in the cool

19unkowingly under the devil's rule

20got you fooled, soul prostitution

20when ya try to get em out, prosecution

21 my conviction is overwhelming

21 cant be nothing but truth I'm telling

22 selling out never gonna be an option

22 you don’t hear rhymers like this very often

23 and that’s a bad thing, I ain't bragging

23 we need more humble beasts out there rapping

24 that be a shout out, to a tight crew

24 creative hip hop to bob your head to

25 us your mind to, light shine through

25 help you see all the lies you were blind to

26 what I do, few will be feeling

26 when I talk about Christ and how he brings healing

27 but when I'm in the rhythm hands to the ceiling

27 and the music playing gives a good feeling

28 well that’s healing, on a bad day

28 but know that’s God healing you indirectly

29 cuz hey, he made rhythm and notes

29and the mouth to make sounds, the hands that wrote

30this verse, these words language I speak it in

30 and no it all didn't evolve by accident

31 its happening cuz he made it exist

31 and the dimension of time that I said this all in

32 spiritual medicine, I give the proscription

32 in a form most aren't use to hearing

33 should be ending, went a little too long

33 to hear straight bars no break in the song

34 but I wanna keep going, I wanna keep flowing

34 if this were a boat I would keeping rowing

35 hoping I didn't over stay my welcome

35 yo bean cut me out before I get second helpings
Track Name: Burnt Out Blues Interlude
1 Man I'm just so burnt out

1 I'm at a loss as to what to write about

2 I shout bout injustice, and the world's problems

2 but I have no idea how to solve em

3 its like all I can do is scream

3 and the only response is “shut up please

4 we live in fantasy, its how we get by

4 cuz if your right, we'll just want to cry”

5 well I feel you, but eventually

5 reality will force you to see

6 the obvious consequences

6 of ya'll spectating on the fences

7 sitting benches in the revolution

7 the restoration of the Constitution

8 oh you didn't hear? The slate is clear?

8 The bill of rights is no longer hear

9 neither is your dollar, so there you are slaving

9 but the government ain't gonna be paying

10 you back in fact they want all you have

10 gathered in mass, kill you in a FEMA camp

11 that’s real rap, give it to you straight

11 I'm done with lies and pointless debates

12 defending the wars and left right hate

12 and Obama, no president more fake

13 yeah I'll name names, I don’t really care

13 wont sell out to be a big millionaire

14 so Tony Blair, Dave Rockefeller

14The Rothchilds and Bilderburg members

15 Bernanke, Hillary, Bush and Chaney

15 congress, YOU are the ones who are crazy

16 but it don’t faze me, if you call me that

16 friends and fam already think I'm whack

17 so at a certain point, all I eats the red pill

17 but like Lauren Hill, call me mentally ill

18 instilled in my mind, is the will to survive

18 through this rap I translate my war cry

19 through Wi Fi transmissions

19 the internet is sharing my vision

20 these lyrics you shouldn't be missing

20 so listen to the words, Listen to the words

listen to the words, actually listen to the words

Listen to the words, its like.....

(guitar by Blake Rapoza)
