Track Name: Question
living to die
dying to live
the oldest cliches in the book that i know we'll never outlive
no i'll never out give the life that grandma gave
i know she's resting in glory
i know my mind has been made
i'm going for gold
going till broke
going a thousand days
i really hope all the stragglers float
and to all those that we left behind
well we left behind a note and it reads:
"swallow regret and choke"
may all your pain be rain
and all your names changed
to match the look on your faces
au revoir till we meet again
do you believe in heaven?
can't you feel the hell?
they'll gun me down in the streets
'fore i step in a cell
'fore i leave from this earth
i'll leave you with this question:
would you give up your comfort for insurmountable pressure?
if you knew that you had
the power to change it all
would you give up your life?
would you answer the call?
Track Name: 1000 Words
they say a picture's worth a thousand words
my life's worth a thousand days
if you find that perfect girl show her love a thousand ways
I've told you a thousand times that I am merely a man
You're never ready for the real world even with a thousand days to plan
man and so now I'm praying for my enemies
Who pack a thousand bullets may they shoot but never enter me
Enter me via all the words that I have written down
my ex is still texting me I swear she's still tripping out
I swear I've walked a thousand miles
met a thousand people too
none of them compare and most definitely can't equal to
You
You've put a thousand smiles on my face
and you've never held me back
you know I got dreams to chase
I got a thousand places
that I need to be
I got a thousand text messages I need to read
I got a thousand sunsets that I've yet to see
I'm a sinner a thousand deaths were meant for me

but I've been told a thousand lies
I'd be a failure if it wasnt for that thousandth try
And for every time i've made you smile
There's a trail of my mistakes spanning a thousand miles
oh yes pictures worth a thousand words
grinding for a thousand days
you don't work you don't eat
Sitting on the couch don't pay
I am on my thousandth stage
this might be my thousandth song
for every time I got it right
There's a thousand times I got it wrong

Wrong are the ones that thought I'd finish last
or never finish I'm finished with dwelling on past
Now let us see what the future holds
I'm trying to see a thousand cities
And cross a thousand roads
Trying to make a thousand friends
But I'll keep my circle tight knit
Intricately woven and chosen they've been hand picked
and they soldiers they
Fought a thousand wars with me
seen a thousand casualties
stop and mourn with me
But rarely do I shed a tear
Live for something die for something
may I live a thousand years
through the legacy I leave behind
there's a thousand stars in my city that need to shine
There's a thousand mouths to feed maybe I'll reach a few
These preachers screaming out they lungs but barely reach a pew
and I'm barely waking up
My moment of clarity
I need a prayer
I got a thousand people there for me

but I've been told a thousand lies
I'd be a failure if it wasnt for that thousandth try
And for every time i've made you smile
There's a trail of my mistakes spanning a thousand miles
oh yes pictures worth a thousand words
grinding for a thousand days
you don't work you don't eat
Sitting on the couch don't pay
I am on my thousandth stage
this might be my thousandth song
for every time I got it right
There's a thousand times I got it wrong
Track Name: Nobody Is Coming Up
I see things differently
this is how its meant to be
they shooting slugs and i hope that every bullet is meant for me
gifted since the age of three
mom could see it in my eyes
she told me i could be anything that i wanted no disguise
no never compromise or settle for nothing lesser
got Texas with me and 25 lighters on my dresser
yessir
there's a thousand ways to lose your life
your direction and your soul can vanish in a single night

but i will never lose the war
fight for my family and my city what's the final score?
we on top again
more pressure no oxygen
more bodies to count
stack em up
targets lock em in

let them fall
let them die
let them rest in shallow graves
lustful hearts
gluttons eye
burning in a jealous rage

let them fall
let them die
let them sleep in pools of blood
nobody is coming up
nobody that you can trust

trust
that's a word i seldom trust
life
well see my days are far too rushed
and her love for me is much
and her skin so smooth when touched
and the air is getting colder i can't layer up enough
ski mask and a blazer with a hoodie underneath it all
january winds had hit my face i couldn't speak at all
no i couldn't sleep at all
5am turned into 8
i'll probably die when i'm thirty-three living at this rate
like Jesus did
trying to live like Jesus die
haven't healed the sick or the blind or strengthened your weaknesses
maybe i'll be betrayed
maybe i'll die for that
embrace the love
ignore the hate
don't pay no mind to that

but i will never lose the war
fight for my family and my city what's the final score?
we on top again
more pressure no oxygen
more bodies to count
stack em up
targets lock em in

let them fall
let them die
let them rest in shallow graves
lustful hearts
gluttons eye
burning in a jealous rage

let them fall
let them die
let them sleep in pools of blood
nobody is coming up
nobody that you can trust
Track Name: Grey Skies Of Dallas
i've been hanging on by a prayer
hanging on by a thread
hanging on by a dream
dangling off the
and if i lose my grip
watch me slip
let me fall
i will still reach the finish line if i crawl
i'm hoping you think about me
hope you wish me the best
i'm hoping i find the words i need to get off my chest
aim for my head or chest
if you're wishing me death
wish no evil upon me
just empty that clip instead
i'm a step away from a failure
day away from success
i've been learning to bite the bullet
thrive when i'm under stress
never suffered a loss
that i couldn't have learned from
you win some you lose some you spend some you earn some
this passion that i burn from
watch it all consume me
see me up on t.v.
tell em all that you knew me
Lord promise to use me
or render me useless
i'm hanging on for life
point me to where the truth is

and the truth is
i never thought i had it in me to do this
i want the grey skies of dallas illuminated
the grey skies of dallas illuminated
yeah yeah now see the truth is
i got this feeling i can't afford to lose it
i want the grey skies of dallas illuminated
the grey skies of dallas illuminated

if you're hanging on by a prayer
or hanging on by a thread
the difficulty's determined by how you angle your head
keep your head to the stars i know you'll make it alive
plus what's the worst that could happen?
you lose it all then you die?
laugh in the face of danger
laugh in the face of death
laugh at all of your burdens
and laugh when you see your ex
laugh at her new man
laugh at his new girl
this morning i saw the city i swear its a new world
my kicks are brand new
my tank is in the middle
when i look at my life
my problems become little
ha...and when my money's so big
i'll buy my girl a ring and my parents a new crib
yeah...that all my people can live in
i don't know how to cook but i know i can make a living
yeah...i mean we all gotta dream right?
things go wrong so long nothing else seems right

and the truth is
i never thought i had it in me to do this
i want the grey skies of dallas illuminated
the grey skies of dallas illuminated
yeah yeah now see the truth is
i got this feeling i can't afford to lose it
i want the grey skies of dallas illuminated
the grey skies of dallas illuminated

yeah...i mean we all gotta dream right?
things go wrong so long nothing else seems right
Track Name: Monsters Inside Your Head
don't let me down
don't let me sink
don't let me drown
don't let me blink
now let me think
but not too much
if i told you that i see you in my dreams
would you blush?
if i told you that i loved you
would you say you feel the same?
i just wanna take your picture
and hang it in a frame
i just wanna take a break
take a breather
take a seat
i've been laying in the sun
bu i can't feel any heat

all those monsters below your bed
are monsters inside your head
you fight and struggle with life
you seek the comfort of death
praying for inner peace
praying yourself to sleep
i'm standing inside the fire
but i can feel no heat

its a cold world
cold world
way down to the core of it
don't you go giving your heart away to anyone
unless you're sure of it
don't you go living a lie living a lie
you can't escape
cause i know i'm willing to die
give up my life
that's what it takes

its a cold world
cold world
way down to the core of it
don't you go giving your heart away to anyone
unless you're sure of it
don't you go living a lie living a lie
you can't escape
cause i know i'm willing to die
give up my life
that's what it takes

don't let me down
don't let me sink
don't let me drown
don't let me blink
now let me think
but not too much
i've been seeing better days but i still ain't seen enough
yeah the winter's almost over
let me sleep until its gone
close the curtains
close my brain
play the music
play the song
i just wanna waste away
i just wanna bundle up
i was born to take the lead
but i'm stuck as runner up

all those monsters below your bed
are monsters inside your head
you fight and struggle with life
you seek the comfort of death
praying for inner peace
praying yourself to sleep
i'm standing inside the fire
but i can feel no heat

its a cold world
cold world
way down to the core of it
don't you go giving your heart away to anyone
unless you're sure of it
don't you go living a lie living a lie
you can't escape
cause i know i'm willing to die
give up my life
that's what it takes

its a cold world
cold world
way down to the core of it
don't you go giving your heart away to anyone
unless you're sure of it
don't you go living a lie living a lie
you can't escape
