I've been thinking bout putting lyrics in the atmosphere
What's up nature, it's a pleasure that you have us here
It's no faking, I'm coming off an average year
Coulda thrown it all away and relaxed in fear
But I'm here, no way that I'll ever relent
I thank God everyday, for my sins I repent
Spiritual warfare, and I ain't on the fence
So think twice, before you try to aim at my head
You got life, so why you tryna play like you dead
Got so many lost souls goin regret they said
They fed into the news and the views of the day
Signed on the dotted line, got confused into stay
Now they on the other side and the mood done turned grey
I hope you follow what I'm saying, I'm refusing to say
It's a bad predicament when you stray from your essence
I sit back, peep game then I lay in my blessings
I stop stressing, knowing things that I can not change
Life's a sprained ankle man, you can not play
I resort to Paradise, like the Mandalay
So when push comes to shove, I'm above the fray

(CHORUS) 4X
I find beauty in the mind, so divine in its presence
We giving it away, wasting time in the present

Beauty In The Mind

I got too many questions, I'm asking God why
But I keep to myself, That's why I seem shy
To the naked eye it might come off as timid
But how can you judge my life if you haven't even lived it
The difference, before I speak my mind, I really listen
To crystallize my thoughts before I'm making my decisions
Precision what I use, constructing all of these views
Our life is all a canvas, the paintbrush is what we choose
Refuse to be another of these carbon copy dudes
Secure with myself, the confidence I exude
So though I'd rather win, I find comfort with when I lose
It's the lessons that you learn to help become a better you
I choose to be involved in things that will evolve
No matter big or small makes no difference at all
I'm really so appalled at things that's going on
So whenever God rings, I'm gonna Answer The Call...

Answer The Call

If you want the honest truth, I think this world anointed you
Cuz everything that move, probably was born in you
They ask me what is God & I'm goin always say it's you
Cuz you the type of blessing making all my dreams come true
Your divine inner essence always throws me for a loop
Just tryna figure out how you fine woman do
I'm inclined to recline and align with the truth
Ain't no time to deny all your shine, it's the proof
They say you're hard to get, but you're really hard to lose
If I had you in my circle, I would never get confused
You make a better man of me, acting like a muse
Got me jumping up on Oprah couch, like I'm Tom Cruise
Please don't get it twisted, don't you misconstrue the news
If you made it up to me & it wasn't up to you
The world as we know it, would obey your every move
There's something bout your aura, an exception to the rule

(CHORUS)
There's something bout your aura, an exception to the rule
Ain't messin with your essence
It's a blessing that your cool
The message that I'm stressin wasn't lessons in the school
So I'm hoping that this message serves as blessings for these fools

You get better like fine wine in divine time
The world would be yours, if I could rewind time
don't believe that story bout that Apple on the vine
Cuz everything in history that they told me was a lie
You should be exalted like a Goddess on a shrine
If they talkin bout an Apple, you the Apple of my eye
Got me waiting on your Glory, like the tear when Denzel cry
Help me Usher in my thoughts, like Confessions in disguise
All the lessons learned from you, adding up to make me wise
You goin get what you deserve, it's goin happen in due time
The world's a better place any time you do shine

Exception to the Rule

Exception to the Rule

(CHORUS)
I'm talking hard work, perseverance, being consistent
Anything you think about, just put in existence
The universe is real, this I say and I meant it
Free your mind, do your time, this is your life sentence

God got me, this I truly believe
Anything I want done, I just roll up my sleeves
Only one blocking my blessings, is the one that I see
In the morning, in the mirror, the reflection of me
I was destined to be, something special, believe
Ever since my conception, all the way from a seed
True indeed, study these lessons, everyday that I read
Tryna figure out the message Angels sending thru me
Working with doubt, is something that I'm just not about
Wash out my mouth with the drama, for I leave out my house
Out and about in a world tryna capture our soul
Fueled by the source, so I know to relinquish control

Into Existence

(CHORUS)
Everything we're seeing always happens for a reason
I believe it, you put your mind to it, you can achieve it
If you think it and you dream it, then just go ahead conceive it
Live it, breathe it, put it together, the final pieces

It's a brainwave, something like telekinesis
How I move mountains, out my way, soon as I see them
Hard to maintain, on this plane, with many scheming
Too much game playing, so insane, make you believe it
It's the same thang, everyday, morning to evening
In the broad day, children slain and mothers grieving
And it's always, bringing change, just for the season
So I choose to, bring some new fresh air to breathe in
It's a hard pill, when you not promised tomorrow
To swallow, knowing that time living is borrowed
The sorrow, we drown ourselves in, add the sin
Got us really believing that we always have to win
So the end, is something we all gotta pretend
Ain't pushing up on us like a small gust of wind
It musta been, a message straight from the deceased
The only way to heaven is to find eternal peace...

Final Peace

(CHORUS)
The game is upside down, I think it's time for a recess
We gotta make the most with every single chance that we get
Cuz we hope, and we stress, and we mope and regret, let's deep breath
I think it's time for a RESET

For the times that I said that I'm neva eva, eva goin make it
To the times that I felt all alone in a spot by myself feeling naked
All the time that I wasted, tryna figure out this Matrix
Back and forth pacing, thoughts on my mind and my heart beat racing
Couldn't be complacent, gotta roll with the times and grow with the times
All the pain is adjacent, I never look back, naw, never goin face it
Coulda kept me caged in, falling in line, I was destined to shine
All the hatred's blatant, everyday dealing with racist faces
Played the cards that they gave him
On the way to a King, gotta deal away your aces
Never goin cave in, Mastermind, ain't never goin slave him
At the top and I'm waving, so called crown is here for the taking
I mean how could I say this, believe in God in God that we blessed
I need to sit back cuz I think it's time for a RESET...

RESET

The timing is perfect, better now, instead of never
Never been a slave, always been a go-getter
Whether thru the pain or the change in the weather
We forever will remain what remains of our treasure
Together we can claim back the things we remember
I celebrate as King every change in September
Re-energize my dreams evert change in December
So my light shines bright, for it fade like an ember
Remember how we came, it's a strange lane we entered
Some still remain, insane, crazed, demented
But who are we to blame in the game they invented
A shame..that we ain't gaining momentum
The name means, Peace Reigns Supreme
Tryna figure how I can link with my Queen
Gotta hurry, for they relinquish the dream
The trip, is long, so the ship needing some stream

Divine

The timing is so good, my rhyming is so perfect
Doka is too cold, he rhyming in first person
Away for like too long, is it even worth working
Shopping with GroupOn, savings like church persons
I know when I do wrong, I don't wanna hurt persons
Thinking that you won, like when you watch Verzuz
Life is more nuanced, like when I write verses
It could get dark, opposite of a white person
So where do I start? Lemme give you the right version
It's straight from the heart, like the vein or the Atrium
This is a start, thanking God what he gave to him
I mastered the art, so the beat is a slave to him
They scratching their heads, when it really just came to him
I heard what he said, but it still sound insane to him
This Matrix a game, and they do anything to win
I know it's a joke...so I stay woke
Words cast spells, so I save quotes
I did a backstroke off the slave boat
You'd be hard-pressed tryna save hope
They know, but they'll never give you answers
All they do is, feed you lies and propaganda
And get mad, when you really just try to stand up
......One day you'll understand usss
Need to iron out the small wrinkles
See them try to click up with you, b4 they link you
If they ever get the inkling, or even think you
Understand what's goin on, that's when they ink you
No tattoo...I'm sorry, what I'm saying, is it taboo?
My bad, I'm just playing, like Scrabble
Putting words on the board, really...is that a bad move?
Don't be confused with life
You get out what you put in, if you do it right
What's done in the dark is soon goin see the light
Too caught in your feelings, I rather catch a flight
My appetite, for things I never had
Got me thinking bout, new additions for different pads
Been with many women, need to settle and be a dad
Don't know what I'm doin, being bad has been a fad
I know....So I'm showing growth
Wrote Samsung Notes how the story goes
Gotta go thru a maze b4 it's glory road
Then you come thru amazed once the story's told...
