Track Name: Baptizin' The Masochist
I AM,
Baptizin’ the masochist,
Some thinkin’ it’s blasphemous,
Wearin’ sunglasses,
And smoking this grass again,
A puff puff pacifist,
Laughs at this,
ha ha ha,
I tickle with my forked tongue,
Man my ego’s well hung,
On this cross that I bare,
30 years in the desert and I can't help but notice,
How i'm seine the mirage everywhere, it’s everywhere,

Just a little twinkle,
On a shine,
On a ripple,
On the surface,
On the pond of eternity,
Or are you the wetness,
That is present as the essence,
Of the entire sea,

Man I represent the blessin’s,
Of the lessons,
Of discretion,
By profession,
As profession,
In this and every session,
Till we reach a new progression,
As I'm stressin’,
The importance,
Of accordance,
With connection to the entire ecosystem,
(Let me just interrupt you there)
Man you need to really listen, pay attention,
Before you're even really qualified to raise an objection,
You should probably start reflection,
Introspection and inspection,
Of your current value systems harmful cultural inflections,
Infections,
Mental illness runs deep,
Value means and archetypes plain out in the streets,
With clips and cleats,
Shots in the dark,
Glasses stomped under armies feet,
Yeah talk is cheep,
And so is meat,
Paradoxically conformists think that there so unique,
If you can hear what I speak,
With affection and feeling no rejection,
And you want to see the future go in a more positive direction,
Say words and get other people to think,

Imagine coming together,
Just think,
To create a better world,
Just think,
Yeah,
Just think,
Oh yeah,
Just think,
We can do it,
I’m thinking about it now,
Just think,
Track Name: Programs+Frisky Dirt
I’m coming back from the gates of hell,
Dark side, pride, rebel,
where most my friends dwell,
Ends swell,
All’s well that ends well,
He means well,
But do they justify the ends,
Making funny friends,
He begins to offend,
Baptizin' the bastards a little bit faster,
Updatin’ the slave to master,
Nows the times to start a new chapter,
After we mend our habits and trends,
Wake up tomorrow and do it again,
Craftin’ and draftin’ a world to live in,
So we are no longer living in sin,
From a thou, to an it, to a then,
Determined to be what we’ve always been,
The more we control,
The more that we hold,
The more that we tighten our grip,
The more that we slip,
The more that we slide back and trip,
Oh captain my captain, no caption is fit,
We’re all going’ down with this ship, oh shit,
Long after the factor,
Reductionist blabber,
And long after the last partial split,
Egads, no monads, so what then is wit,

Programs, Social construct,
(Life is just a process)

You know I didn’t choose my parents or my time and place of birth,
I’m just a a thrown object, shown objects, tryin’ to find their worth,
They call me frisky, Frisky Dirt,
I’m the power of the planet, god damn it I put in work,
This means,
Were biological machines,
Created by genes,
Minds programmed by memes,
This means,
You don’t have ideas, these ideas have you,
And your sick on the shit like a cognitive flu,
This means,
Thoughts manifest as actions,
And as they gain traction,
People split into fractions,
This mean,
Theres a war of ideas with followers and leaders,
Understanders and believers, It’s true,
And have you thought about it man,
Do you think you understand,
Why you think and act as you do,

(Life is just a process)
Programs, Social construct


Human beings are literally the universe,
After some 14 billion years of unbroken evolution,
Now becoming conscious of it’s self,
We didn’t come into the world we grew out of it,
In the same way that apples grow out of an apple tree,
We are organically related to the whole,
4 billion years ago the earth was molten rock and now it sings opera,
You take a grey cloud of hydrogen gas and you just leave it alone,
And it becomes rose bushes, giraffes, and human beings,
Human beings are literally the universe,
After some 14 billion years of unbroken evolution,
Now becoming conscious of it’s self,
(Michael Dowd quoting Brian Swimme)

Being this isness, existence,
This shiznits my business,
In tenses’s relentless,
My project, Projection,
Include some rejection,
I AM this movement,
This moments perfection.
In an absolute since,
But from a relative perspective there's plenty to fix,

Yes I move through matter, through songs and gun splatter,
Through digits and data, even daily charter,
Through widgets and habitats, telling kids you can’t have it back,
Just to see what they do,
I Try this, and test that,
And buy this, and stress that,
Rip this, and sell this,
And self is so selfish and held back,
So fuck that, I get this, I want that,
I see you, you see back,
I need you, you need back,
We be that, believe that,
Now lean back and chill,
Cause I’m about to spill,

I myself am a philosopher,
Now am I saying that a sizable minority of the worlds population has had their brain hijacked by parasitic ideas,
Oh it worse then that, most people have, their infectious, memes, memes are like viruses, it’s ideas that hijack our brains,
hosts work hard to spread these ideas to others, the idea of replicating ideas, ideas that spread b passing from brain to brain.
(Dan Dennett)
Track Name: The Sound of Silence
I AM THE UNIVERSE PROJECT PART 2:
Who is this I AM? The mind wants more.
I wanna grab people in the street and say:
HAVE YOU HEARD THIS?
(Megatron, Neil Degrasse Tyson, Carl Jung, Ken Wilber,
and some eastern Guru who I don't know about or want to endorse)

While I'm in the limelight,
I rhyme like,
You think I'm out of my mind,
Cause I'm way ahead of time,
And I'm still refining,
Reaching my prime,
Yeah I'm steady climbin',
While your gettin' left behind tike,
And it's so likely,
That you might find me,
Smokin' mad joints like Spike Lee,
Hitin' them trees, feelin' the breeze,
Chillin' taking deep breaths, feeling at ease.
They don't wanna battle me with philosophy,
They wanna fight me,
and turn around and bite me,
And try to write a rhyme just like me,
but just can't manage to get loose so tightly,
Not even slightly.
Man I Shine so brightly,
like the sun. My Apollo G's.
Out rhyme and out shine mediocrity,
Davidian integral pluralistic methodology,
I lead by example and you follow G,
What you call religion is mythology,
So closed minded and dishonestly,
You impose your ideas and it bothers me,
You obviously,
Can't get past your own hypocrisy,
You're Too slow to grow,
You'd never want to step to me toe to toe,
You'd rather talk this and that and so and so, and so it goes.
But there's a reason it's a mystery,
Cause no one knows,
And all throughout history,
It's rapped in prose,
You still wouldn't get it if I rapped real slow,
Still over your head even when you turn up your nose,
But my brother from another mother,
If you're feelin' these flows,
Say hey and say ho,
And if the beats still droppin',
Keep on rockin till they close the do(or)s,
And if it's the case G,
That in the place to be,
That everybody knows that everybody knows the Gnosis,
Everybody suppose that it's suppose to be,
Then chill for a minute let the silence speak.
Yo, this DJ can drop the beat.

And no one dared disturb the sound of silence...

Yo I Rip flows fantastically,
Kick mad verbal backflips gymnastically,
Homie I mastered the,
Art of attack of the track to get past the beat,
Just how it has to be, accuse me of blaspheme,
But I still got you shaken you head YES,
As I bless, cause you know I'm so so fresh,
Huh, I didn’t hear ya, cause I’m so so def,
Well who’s the next fool to step to get their rep ripped in half,
Remember Jesus cried but buddha laughed,
And krishna clapped with one hand tied behind his back,
(Impressive)
This is a fact,
Somewhere I got medusas severed head in a sack,
Sometimes I’m home alone,
And I need to get stoned,
To get my life (state) back on track,
Cause life's an act,
And I’m a method actor,
I'll be playin' my part,
Cause I shine so bright,
And the worlds so dark,
Sometimes I think I‘m the only man with a heart,
Or a brain,
Like the whole worlds totally lame and insane,
Goin' of the rails of the crazy train,
It’s only evolutions so theres no one to blame,
I’ll bless the mic and long as I remain,
I hit you with explicit truth never the tame,
Never the same,
You should never hesitate to get up, grow up, and change,
Cause you’re only stagnatin' if you’re set in your ways,
You only get one life, don’t live it stuck in a daze
Unconsciously playing plays,
Like your job, family, friends, life, and your name,
Your life is lame compared to what it could be should be,
Man it’s just a damn shame,
Every single day is the same,
You strive for the fame,
But your living your life just like another mother fucking pawn in the game,

And the vision that was planted in my brain,
Still remains, within the sound of silence,

You got the sorrowful symptoms,
Your a sucka for samsara,
So drunk on the dharma,
That it’s effecting you karma,
I’m standing naked before you while your covered in ya armor,
And yet I still manage to damage ya and disarm ya,
Even though it’s not really not even my goal to harm ya,
I unwind your mind like it was yarn ya,
Don’t even know what happened,
My rappin' took it to another word like it was Narnia,
Darn ya maybe shouldn’t even of tried it,
Man do you know King David even slays Goliath,
My life's a revolution, every songs a riot,
I’m spreadin' the good news,
Man i got the philosophical tools,
And I’m even teachin' fools to apply it,
Way past argument by Keynes and Hayek,
We should all know that this fuckin' systems violent,
Way too many brothers and sisters dyin’,
I even got your baby momma on a vegan diet,
And she told me that she really likes it
Maybe you should try it.
Track Name: Take Care
Keep it simple,
They keep tellin' me to keep it simple,

It's simple assemble a symbol out of these several similar similes,
New but familiar with filler resembling fabulous filagrees,
Mentally manifesting, and testing meaning, and seeing my will at ease,
Abidin' and sidin' with Heraclitus over Parmenides,
The universe in flux, that's just the real it seems,
And the relative nature of language is a major problem in philosophy,
Yeah go ahead Socrates,
You might try to think of a way that it might not be,
But you'll probably fail,
You said it's unfair and threw away the holy grail,
You're unwilling to walk down the trail, to see the truth unveiled,
(What goes on out there?)
These shit rolling scarabs transform into terrible seraphim,
They're tearing the veil, holly covenant bare from where within,
No robes, exposed, gold shows, this mastered leviathan,
3rd eye illuminate, the great I AM, born after you die again,
Holly resurrected,
Master of 2 worlds,
Invert the pyramid,
Take care of your mother,

Manifest Nirvana,
Take care,
Manifest Nirvana,
Yo, Take care of your mother,

Unto all my hermitive cave dwellers,
Metaphysical grave swellers,
Brave fellas and ladies,
Those few of you who knew,
That true school HIP HOP didn't stop in the 80's,
It's up to us now to carry the torch and,
To be the voice and,
To bring our people to a new land,
To make them understand,
Take care of your mother,

I let em know, Yo,
No restitution or institution can stop me,
No not me,
This shit is not my hobby,
This is full time I AM everyday,
My life is not my own man my life is God's play,
The infinite resurrected reflected introspected and reconnected,
Takin' new perspectives,
I'm fully integrated and deeply interconnected,
I hope that you respect it, and are positively affected,
I rep the holy trinity, the maiden mother and crone,
All cycles of the moon, waxin' wainin' and full blown,
You might find me in the tomb writin' sacred tombs,
or profane poems,
Sweet Sophia, Saraswati,
Illuminate my mind soul and body,
Possessed by Kali,
David Long lost to Sukhavati,

The burning ground,
Mass extinction,
Full colapse,
The end of days,
The untangling of the web of life,
So much work and pain for not,
These things too will come to pass,
Unless we can truly learn to love one another,
Holly resurrected,
Master of 2 worlds,
Invert the pyramid,
Take care of your mother,

Manifest Nirvana,
Take care,
Manifest Nirvana,
Yo, Take care of your mother,

Unto all my hermitive cave dwellers,
Metaphysical grave swellers,
Brave fellas and ladies,
Those few of you who knew,
That true school HIP HOP didn't stop in the 80's,
It's up to us now to carry the torch and,
To be the voice and,
To bring our people to a new land,
To make them understand,
Take care of your mother,
Track Name: Back That Claim Up ft. MavStar
Mav:
Old school talent,
Knock em off balance,
What it take to animate the statues on my palace,
Master of enchantment,
The rogue that run rampant,
Planted the trap at the enemy encampment,
just a bad habit,
Code whenI cracked it,
Now I laugh at the blue print when I draft it,
Who said that I was actin',
They probably been sleepin',
when the squad they used to run with and I are in agreement,

I AM:
With a chisel and hammer I wrote it in cement,
In secret, at the summit of the mountain I keep it,
When I descend with,
Old school penmanship,
Minds get spilt,
Time gets bent,
Wave functions collapse into mental concepts,
You react, make contact, resulting in physical consequence ,
Ambiance changes quick, when the shadows creep in,
You're pleadin', don't disturb my slumber man, I'm sleepin',

Mav:
Wait till I awaken,
Dreamt about a snake den,
Slither past statement,
Just beneath the basement,
Track need a facelift,
Maverick the ageless,
Subtracted the pages,
From bland and contagious,
Ran with the mages,
Cast among the cavalry,
Actually,
Happily,
Ran with the analogy,
Rapidly compatible with action and catastrophe,
Blasphemy,
What else could you really wanna ask of me,
Everybody grabbin' for a fragment of the majesty,
(Just a fragment please)

I AM:
There's no need for these apologies,
Get off your knees and into these philosophies,
Lobotomies,
We oughta see,
An end to this monopoly,
Theres gotta be,
A way that we can topple the,
Impossibly,
Antiquated out of date,
Suffocating substrate,
The state,
Never tell me that it's too late to try,
I would rather die than just stand by,
Sigh, stare at the sky, cry, and ask God why,
(FIGHT THE POWER)
I say YES to live, YES to strive,
YES to the adventure and, YES tonight,
We can do more what you waitin' for,
How can you ignore the war that's inside of the mind of the time,
Grab ahold of the ladder and climb,
Hypnotic suggestions designed,
To get you to shut down and sit back, recline,
You seek and you find,
Reconnect and remind,
The world of a mystery that can't be defined,

Mav:
Why you gotta ask to see the mask,
Half the assassins standin' back,
Right, you want a path,
Well do the math,
What you gon grab at the end of the fast,
run from the blast,
front of the class,
Dungeon was buzzin' with hundred of laughs,
Ain't nothin' bad,
Strange to be clad,
In rearrangements of the faces we had,
Who engages with the bass beneath the audible,
Couldn't trace it back to the attack, impossible,
Reminisce amid the bliss like it was tropical,
Shift into infinite drift, phenomenal


I AM:
Yo,
I'm not the quiver for your arrow,
Ergo,
Air flow,
Can't hit the target though,
Not even your strawman,
Aw damn,
Don't be such a clumsy little cupid stupid,
So dull,
You need to sharpen that point,
So called,
You talk a lot of shit but you only disappoint,

Man it sounds good,
You should back that claim up,
Yo you talk a big game,
You should back that claim up,
Who the fuck you think you're talkin' to,
Back that claim up,
Back that claim up,
Back that claim up,
Yo I don't think you can man,
Back that claim up,
Yo I don't think he's goin' to
Back that claim up,
Back that claim up,

I AM:
At the end of demonstrations,
Who's shown fake and,
Who's shown makin',
Minds come awake and,
People takin' up the lives and,
Creatin' times,
Not mistaken by,

Mav:
Sentinel grand analist,
man-handle this,
Beat, I'm cantankerous,
Walk the plank and hang with us,
What happens when the different candelabras that are candleless,
Scripted for an opera that was limitless and scandalous

I AM:
I AM and MavStar comin' so bizarre, (How bizarre)
You can see us at the HUB where high-rollers are,
Near or far, no matter where you are,
You should bump this shit up in your car,
I know that you are,
We just raised the bar,
Smoke your whole crew blunt like a weed cigar,
Till you don't know who you are,
But I AM still passin' back and forth mad hits,
with my hommie Maverick AKA MavStar,
Track Name: Still Water
These still waters still running deep,
How deep,
(Take my hand)
Come with me, come along with me and see,
The old made new and freed,
Indeed,
1970 to 2015
Kick back relax and blaze the weed,

I save the baby from the dirty bathwater,
Got a diamond from a dung hill,
Good discriminations take patience and will,
Honor and I'm still,
Learnin' to take pictures cause they last longer,
Man you're so chill,
Your waters frozen over,
Is that why you're so cold,
Why your so thick,
I hope you can defrost and get that chip off your shoulder,
Before you grow old,
I hope it come quick,
With the twist of my wrist,
I taught Sisyphus a new trick,
To better roll the bolder,
Till he reaches the top and rolls it over,
Stone sober,
Finally the monotony has quit,
Someone better warn Homer,
I'm coming for every single archetype of the mind,
I'm helping them find,
a better translation in time,
Helping them climb,
Till they get high enough to see the sublime,
Every time, (yeah)

If you open your 3rd eye,
If you seek it you will find,
You will notice,
The lotus blooms under the moon light,

Oh yeah,
Thats nice,
feel it,
yeah,
ok,
(still water)

Can I change the tide,
I AM the motion of the ocean or along for the ride,
Oh oh, been feelin' so confused lately,
I collected my belongings and I hit the trail,
Had to go out where I could think a spell,
Had to think a while, Had to think a while,

Now I can tell that for that and this from this,
Truth from myth or hope or wish,
But when I sit back and I reminisce I picture this,
Humanity's overlooking the cliff to the abyss,
And holy shit, it seems like it's coming quick,
With such a big wealth gap between the poor and the rich,
We really need to switch soon,
To a new system,
Before we end up in that ditch human,
It's loomin',
Stop consumin',
The products and the propaganda,
That they hand ya,
There's more to life then just fun stupid,
You need more than pig pleasures to expand ya,
Take those Ayn Rand books and thrown em away,
Go read what Sam Harris has got to say,
Then check some Ken Wilber to be dismayed,
Joseph Campbell should be mandatory reading by at least the 10th grade,
Any Traditional conformist should be afraid,
Most progressive people are still waiting for you to take your stupid ideas with you to your grave,
Without that divisive shit we'd probably be ok,
As far as I'm concerned you can grow up or go away,
Or at least no one should listen to a single thing you say,
It's hard not to be condescending when you refuse to use your brain,
Those defensive ideas are just too deeply ingrained.
(still water)

If you open your 3rd eye,
If you seek it you will find,
You will notice,
The lotus blooms under the moon light,

Listen,
Humans are social animals,
We need each other to help handle,
Ideas that we need to dismantle,
Shine your light like a candle and guid the way,
For these lost sheep out there who've gone astray,
They might tell you that they don't like what you've got to say,
But you gotta keep it real yo it's the only way,
Bad Ideas have real life consequences everyday,
If you really care about people you will speak to where their values and passions lay,
Usually I try to say it in the nicest way,
I'm not mad at the person just the part they play,
I'm not mad cause you're wrong it's the closed minded way,
You use faith to numb your brain,
Ignoring loved ones, facts about reality, so insane,
Your mind can't learn so it stays the same,
And you flush your development right down the drain,

(Like you ain't up on things,
Still,
Still waters run deep)
Track Name: Oṃ Maṇi Padme Hūṃ
Oṃ Maṇi Padme Hūṃ
Oṃ Maṇi Padme Hūṃ

The question was asked:
When did you have your grand realization?
(yes tell us)

well,
I suppose I was,
Chillin' by a swam when i first noticed,
That the jewel is in the the lotus,
I spoke to monk and he showed us,
Up close this
The Gnosis,
Expose us,
And it blows us away,
Beyond what words can say,
And I can't convey,
The beauty that i saw with my eyes that day,
In a way I guess it be came apparent to me,
That life is just God's play,
Inter-objectively Interconnected Inherently,
Feelin' total solidarity, with everything i'm seein'
Supreme human-being, being being the Being of Being, seein' Being Become,
Maturing so where no so,
Dum ditty dum ditty ditty dum,
Ditty dum da dum da dum ditty ditty dum,

Makin' the best of it,
Feelin' so blessed by it,
This is my testament,
We can have sessions to settle the rest of it,
Elevate,
Relevant,
Element,
Celebrate,
Resonate,
Tell a friend,

Years went by,
Time to time,
people would come by,
and they would say

Ummmm,
Who's that monk over there?

He is I AM
I AM him,
Slim with a tilted brim.
Skills wisdom passion and deep will within.
Quill and pen,
Goddess manifests the red pill through him,
Like he was born for this,
The page of time was torn for this,
Glorious Neo/Morpheus
Nobody's as notorious as I AM,
Penetrating space and time,
Through beats and rhyme,
Tryin' to awake your mind,
The stakes is high
I do it like everyday,
Through what I say,
Like makin' ripples in a pond,
We go above and beyond,
Also under stand below,
We see what is what
And what what's got to show.
Now stop,
You know, do what you got to do,
Spend a little time with you shadow won't you,
But also recognize that divine pride,
Eyes on the prize,
Keep the hope alive.
Now stop,
In case you didn't notice the jewels in the Lotus,
That means you can be in heaven if you,
Focus on the unity
Focus on community
Focus on the interconnection,
In reality,
Individual,
Is a more like a cancerous cognitive infection,
Humans are Holons,
We are social animals,
We are interdependent,
That's why we can't just act so independent.
And Fuck the first amendment,
If you think it's the end of history,
We have to really think bigger,
To end war and misery,
Worldcentric bodhisattva,
Manifest nirvana,
On earth as it is in heaven,
Give us this day our daily bread and help us transcend our ego's,
I AM,
The power and glory,
For ever and ever,
Amen

Oṃ Maṇi Padme Hūṃ
Oṃ Maṇi Padme Hūṃ
Track Name: Passion
Bequeathed into the scene,
Debriefed and in between,
The sheets oh what I've seen,
What I've seen,
17 or 58,
The time is what make,
The real or for the fake,
You're for the fake
Inflate but don't berate,
Hesitate and you'll be late,
You think your shit is great but ah,
It's not great,

Resolute rectify,
I'm the inspector,
In this very moment,
In every endeavor,
I witness at will,
The specter hangs over the hill with the cross,
The corporate boss,
Respect me, don't tell me to chill,
Homie, you know me, I'm ill,
I'm a be getting my fill,
That's just the deal,
Still,
Seein the world as the will to power,
Watch you devour every flower,
Till,
A billion a million is nil,
Rob and you rape and you kill,
You never go hungry,
But some be,
Just desperate for a meal,
Can anyone out there feel,
Or are we just cowards,
only concerned with that power,
that we call ours still,

And we're always just thinking,
What can little ol' me even do about it,

Theres a reason to speak,
We can find if we seek,
Realign and release,
We reorient, Peace,
A community leap,
into unity's peek,
At least,
i've drawn your attention to deep,
Demotions less bleak,
Thats one of my many techniques,
To tweak your mind and refine,
I'm leaven behind ideas that are weak,
I AM Authentic and Unique,

Yeah,
We're really capable of so much,
If we just set our mind to it,
I know for me ,I set my mind to something and I'm gunna do it,
If it can be done, I'm gunna do it,

Resolute rectify,
Really resilient,
My luminous laser beam FOCUS so brilliant,
Fulfillment through wisdom and action,
And then time for still satisfaction,
New desires lead to further action/reaction,
Refinement until then,
And still then,
With passion,
Instill them,
Compassion,
We’ll actively will them to happen,
In fact then,
Imagining what we could do if we weren’t so distracted,
The future forever impacted,
As the result of our every action,
reaction,
2015 and the world is in need of passion,
Track Name: Not Peace But A Sword
I AM,
This is my name forever,
I AM,
The name by which I AM to be remembered from generation to generation,
I AM,
I AM the light of the world, who ever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life,
I AM,
If you hold to my teaching, then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free,
I AM,

The teacher is here

Here is this man preforming many miraculous signs,
If we let him go on like this everyone will believe in him,

I AM the truth,
I got the proof,
You can believe it or not,

I AM

Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace,
I Did not come to bring peace but a sword.

And what is the sword for? It's to distinguish the merely temporal from the eternal (Joseph Campbell)

I can see through the sign,
See past the symbol and design,
The culture and the time,
In my mirror mind,
I see hidden meaning shine,
Intertwine,
Most the new wine is rotten dying on the vine,
when the knowledge of divine is for and from another time,
It gets forgotten,
and over time corrupted,
These Images are overused,
And politically abused,
Until there deconstructed,
Now misbegotten youth have no foundation to grow up in,
No nations stations roles or rules, and definitely no judgments,
Which ends discussions,
So how can we establish what is good or true,
and how can we live together if you think meanings up to you,
What should we do,
Can we come together and birth a new world view,
Can we see the universal through the cultural transcend and then include,
How much longer can we tolerate these ethnocentric views,
destroying our world with wars over oil, promised land, and family feuds,
We got 3 names,
For the same God,
And they’re all flawed,
We call fraud,
Man whats with these dudes,
DNA proves,
Evolution true,
Several other disciplines do too,
And now with the internet they’re no excuse,
If you don’t know by now you must be trying not to,
Fingers in your ears,
Your so closed minded,
Your denying, that your lying to yourself,
Blinded and I tried but it don’t help,
Cried but it don’t help,
Sighed and then I felt,
That only time and the use of mind can really help,

Real truth seekers are such a rare thing,
They crave deep substance over flare and bling,
A philosopher king or queen wants more than fame,
We want a better world minimizing pain,
Many people just want the past, or more the same,
But it’s time to change the game,
And the reasons you were born,
Is the reason that I came,
The voice of evolution,
Resolution,
Solution,
Or we start a revolution right now,
Come to the conclusion,
Separateness is an illusion,
Break hold of the delusion and never back down,
Act now,
Not IT but THOU,
A sacred process,
Christ conscious tao,
I’ll be keeping this holy vow,
Not a matter of if
But How
All within the limits of what time allows,
Holly cow,
Chalices of living water turned upside down,
And Infinitely pouring out,
Like an Aquarian temperance,
I couldn’t tell the difference,
Cause God’s androgynous,
And it was at a distance,
I put more emphasis on the flowing tempest.
I drank so deep.
There was no resistance,
And in an instant,
I was no longer asleep,
No longer independent,
No longer Free,
Connected fully and completely to everything I see,
Rhizomatic contagion engagin' and creating everything including me

I AM THAT I AM,
Vishnu, Baphomet, Jehovah,
I AM THAT I AM,
Zeus, Osiris,
I AM THAT I AM,
Holly Spirit, Super Nova,

Krishna, Jesus, and Baphomet,
They ain't got shit on me,
None of them fools had the internet,
This is 2015,
I’m not preaching an eye for an eye or turn the other check,
My philosophy has nuance, it’s not simple or extreme,
King Solomon, The Buddha, and Socrates,
They ain't got shit on me,
None of them fools had the internet,
This is 2015,
I'm not sayin' life's good or bad, enjoy it or retreat,
My philosophy has nuance, it’s not simple or extreme,
Track Name: More Than Just A Human
Aye Yo,
It was a clear black night,
A clear white full moon,
A starry night with a funky tune,
In the month of June,
A night much like this,
A shooting star,
A girl, a kiss,
In the back of my car, parked way out far,
With the top down, and i’m seen now this not just a fling,
I'm chilling with my lady man, we do our thing,
We blow smoke rings while cicadas sing
,
Theres a universal templet and a universal law,
It’s like there seems to be a pattern underneath it all,
And we're subject to it just to be at all,
Wise man, a fool, if you walk or crawl,
If raise 2 fingers like peace to y’all,
If you get involved,
Or if you get real angry,
Like you jaw is clenched and fist is balled,
If you act a fool,
If you get in brawls,
Cause and effect it connects us all,
It effects us all,
Thats why I might sometimes expect to fall,
But this time I didn’t see it comin',

This girl has seen me in my element,
She knows my habitat,
She's been down to my stomping ground,
It was electric,
I know she felt it,

The symmetry,
The chemistry,
The goddess had you sent to me
You understand whats movin' me,
So you influence me
So fluently,
Towards fluency,
Reminding me of unity,
As it should be,
It reminds me of you and me,
If only it could be,
We're not just dissolvin',
Were both still evolvin' as you can see,
We find clarity,
Resides on the other side of false pride,
And implied extreme ambiguity,
Now that I’ve got the opportunity,
It only seems right,
With the light of moon as my guid,
And my lady by my side,
To live life with my eyes wide open to eternity,
and THAT is the lesson she keeps learnin' me,
She keeps learnin' me,

More than just a human,
I'm so much more,
Track Name: No Shelter/Bad Weather
This is for the true blue,
The one who loves you for you,
Givin' real support no matter what your hearts tellin' you to do,
My boo,
I respect you body and mind,
And I love how you still make time,
Even though you got you projects you still help me with mine,
Your so beautiful and kind,
You inspire me to be a better man,
And I know that I can be with a woman like you by my side,
And we build each other up,
(Opposites attract and it's like that)
We don't put each other down,
Yo, we build each other up,
(We got the bet of both worlds)
We never let each other down,

I see my self in your eyes and,
We're focused on a shared horizon,
It lies in the middle of terrifying storm,
I'll meet you in the middle close our eyes and transform,


No Shelter,
We still still thrive,
Bad weather,
Couldn't take me,
Take me by surprise,
No Shelter,
We can't deny,
(We can't deny)
Bad weather,
Fill me up,
And teach me to thrive,

I feel calm in the eye of the storm,
I feel so lucky to be the man who's keepin' you safe and warm,
When I gaze into your eyes I see divinity in form,
You challenge me to be my best, I try to preform,

And there's somthin' about you that makes me feel,
So Joyful you are my girl.
You are my girl,
Even when the world goes crazy you are my girl,

Momentarily a beam of sunlight breaks through grey clouds,
But this storm is far from over,

No Shelter,
We still still thrive,
Bad weather,
Couldn't take me,
Take me by surprise,
No Shelter,
We can't deny,
(We can't deny)
Bad weather,
Fill me up,
And teach me to thrive,
Track Name: Shit Talk About Freedom
Yo,
No,
I don’t fear the reaper,
I can go deeper than any ocean river or pond,
I AM staying higher than any pinnacle you’ve ever been on,
Bringing light to the world like it’s shining at dawn,
It’s so much more complex than just rights and wrongs,
Still weighing these pros and cons,
I pivot on axioms till facts become clear,
I still persevere through the calm and severe,
I’m rippin this,
While I’m kickin this,
Brand new flava in ya ear,
Some brand new falva in ya ear,

Yes,
But how can I tell you, in a way, that you’ll listen, for a minute,
You defend and justify, but you know that I care so I try, none the less,

2015,
Post-modernist uprising,
You know what time it is,
New ager be all… WOO HAA,
Like Busta Rhymes and shit,
Humanity is still in it’s adolescence,
We are still so slowly learning these lessons,
But it seems like so much selfishness and spiritual bypassing
Just leads to narcissistic regression,
Hey,
Thats the american way,
We got people wantin' freedom without responsibility,
They only care about the price that they pay stupidity,
Nay say ability,
So hypocritically,
Judging people for judging people,
Admittedly,
We all want some amount of human dignity,
Personal freedom and liberty,
But where is the line between you and me,
When we have to share a reality day to day!

Worry bout ME, ME, ME, ME,
I’ma worry bout me give a fuck about you.

And I’m hear to let you know that Knowledge Reigns Supreme,
Over Nearly Everyone enabling awakenings,

Metasapien 2015,
And as long as I still have the energy to walk and the breath to talk,
I’ll still be making these much needed ripples in eternity,
I’m sacredly,
Shaken the,
Evolutionary tree,
Turnin' the wheel,
Cause I study the good and the real,
(and it’s beautiful)
That’s my spiel,
How i feel,
Yo you know the deal,

I think it’s time to quit with that shallow bass,
disposable empty pig pleasure bullshit!

Track Name: Hurry Up/Slow Down ft. Candy Lee
Aye Yo,
Do you ever feel like,
Like you wanna slow down,
Like there's so much to learn and so little time,
But you need to hurry up cause your so far behind,
And the pressure keeps building from so many sides ,
That you feel like your just gonna to burst,
You wanna quit but you can't,
You wanna sit but you stand,
You wanna trow a fit,
Rip shit,
Scream God damn,
Fuck this shit ,
Give me the quick fix,
Put it in my hand,
The world's spinnin' out of control,
And I'm just one man,
With a plan,
Who can barely understand,
How to save his own soul,
Let alone thought patrol,
But if were gonna live together,
Then we need to learn self control,

If your heads in the sky and your building upwards
And your wonderin' why you're wobblin',
Their hackin' away at your foundation,
(Your Foundation)
and soon enough,
You will be tumblin',
Tumblin' down,

Back to the path with a pad and a pen,
I really want to give up, but I do it again,
I need to hurry up cause the time is flyin',
But I also need to slow it down, so i'm tryin',
Man they weren't bluffin',
They don't call it a rat race for nothin',
They got me huffin' n buffin' looking for the cheese,
Yeah,
They know I'm lactose intolerant,
I gotta quit,
Be innocent of all of it,
Theres gotta be a good solution,
A market place revolution,
A redistribution,
A new institution to further evolution,
Nothings going to stand in my way,
We can star a new day today,
So get me out of this cage,
Out of this maze.
Off of this stage,
I wanna be the sage of a new age,

Candy Lee:
The world it moves so fast, (So fast)
I Just can't get a grasp,
How theres never enough time within a day,
My progress moves so slow, (So slow)
How long I just don't know,
If all my hard work will pay off in a change,
But I push, (I push)
And I fight, (I fight)
And I try to be patient, (Try to be patient)
Cause I know, (know)
That if I don't try, (I don't try)
Nothing will ever,
No nothing will ever happen,


Times goes by so fast,
At long last,
I’m finally getting past my problems,
Whoa, whats that,
Same shit,
Oh no,
I guess I’m finding out that I really still got em,
I'm finding out theres a New rock bottom,
A new dark night,
New search for the light at the end of that struggle,
Feeling like life just a bunch of trouble,
Maybe more then its worth,
Got me feeling like a jerk,
Need to get back to working those doubles,
I’m seeing dreams that seemed so set in stone just crumble,
Making me humble,
Making me wonder,
What does it take,
To high to get over, yeah yeah, (Michael Jackson)
To really get into, what you really get into,
(You're stuck in the middle)
What I feel that I really need to get into,
Too Low to get under, yeah yeah, (Michael Jackson)
What i really get into,

I've Been so down low,
But your highness is still chillin' up in palaces,
Raisin' deep chalices,
Caught in mirror mind trans and analysis paralysis,
Help man somebody get me outa this,
I’m suppose to bring this power to the people,
End the class war, and tear down the steeple,
End the drug war and make marry jane legal,
Only got one life and there will be no sequel,
Their will be no equal,
There will be no redo,
We will be remembered by what we say and what we do,
Use your heart and your mind, let the spirit lead you,
You might think you don’t want to but yo you need to,
You need the world man, the world doesn’t need you,
To breath through,
But I guess we can make do,
Till we have a break through,
I know it seems way overdue,
And I hope it’s not too late,
With so much on our plate,
And still we have so much to do,
I know we seem small and it seems great,
And so much is at stake,
Your wondering what you can do,
Start with your own life,
Start with your own time,
Lead by example and follow through,
Be true to your self and your habitat,
develop you skills and give them back,

Track Name: The Transformation
You know my Goddess is damaged,
People famished,
All over the planet,
sick and tired,
or broke and fired,
or working hard to try to manage,
I can't stand it,
And people ask me not to feel,
How long will,
We have to kill,
Or fight or steal,
Or sell our skill to get a meal,
Man I ‘d be workin' all day like an ant hills,
I’d carry a shovel or a shield,
If I get my desert and I don’t feel,
Under the heal like a jerk or a slave working the field,
Getting raw deals, with nothin' to show
And how can I ever do any better if they never,
Give us the room to grow,
Hmmmm... I don’t know,
We treat this planet like an over glorified gas station man,
A plantation man,
An economic cash system,
Cast system,
Classism,
That’s why I’m hear to let you know,
(Metasapien)
Together we grow the spiral,
Renew, refresh, revival,
We new, we fresh, we vital,
The title, you know its Integral,
Synthesis,
The best of both themes,
Corrects the problems in those memes,
RBE (Recourse Based Economy), meritocracy,
Unity, and those things,
Liberty, community,
Responsibility, opportunity ,
We got to move fast the transformation has already begun,
No matter what our current wasteful way of life is soon to be done,
Massive climate changin' trappin' radiatin' rays of the sun,
Economic systems collapsin',
Like no one thought that this could happen,
Now were in a world wide depression,
Can we press on,
Yes we press on,
We already have the better methods,
Green energy, abundant food, and worldcentric ethics,
Developmental lessons applied to every human practice,
You’re Encouraged to be engaged, and not distracted,
It’s time to get up
It’s time to get movin',
It’s time to get active,
It’s time to find brothers and sisters of like mind,
Organize, and gain traction,
Were growing the movement,
I know we can do it,
I fact I’m,
Fully expecting that things can all change in a glorious chain reaction,
Track Name: Let It Go
Philosopher King

I AM

Spiral Mechanic

These simples got the symptom,
I got that mind map,
Upgrade it,
Re-send the symbol its psychoactive,
idea it activated,
Out dated,
Antiquated,
Old testament, Vedic,
The Gita,
Witch/Pagan,
Christians, Muslims, and Buddhists,
Republicans who like Regain(666),
Denying evolution,
That the climate is changin',
Act like it’s just all good,
When you should be ragin'
Make your life a masterpiece,
In the inevitable center of your labyrinth,
You must face your inner beast,
Look it deep in the eye,
And please don’t retreat,
The cave you fear to enter,
Holds the treasure that you seek,

Well I know,
You know,
I know,
But instead of beggin' me to let you know,
You're beggin' me to let it go, let it go,


Some of these people are worth the time,
And some of these steeple just drain you,
It’s not a matter of what they know,
but if they're not open and honest that's lame dude,
I can’t blame you,
If you just let it go,
So much better the castin' your seed upon that infertile soil,
Displaying your beautiful pearls for some swine,
I think I got better things to do with my time,
Like what,
Like just about anything,

Well I know,
You know,
I know,
But instead of beggin' me to let you know,
You're beggin' me to let it go, let it go,


Impermanence,
Getting to the point where I’m not so concerned with shit,
If you wanna burn go ahead and fuckin' burn a bit,
If you wanna learn go ahead man learn some shit,
Then come back lets burn a bit,
I’m down with the real truth seekers, found truth,
And now they're true leaders, reconstructionists,
Revolutionary activists,
Matter fact i’m pissed,
But I’m too busy building these new worlds to be fighting the past,
I know they won’t last once we finish our task,
Our new methods making old ways obsolete and at last,
Development will grow healthy, unobstructed, and fast,
If your ignorant,
And proud of it,
I'll probably put you on blast,
Give you just enough rope to hang yourself,
And revile you're an ass,
Shit talker makin' assumptions,
Sittin' there grindin' that axe,
If you where humble, you wouldn’t act a fool,
If you where smart, you would ask

Well I know,
You know,
I know,
But instead of beggin' me to let you know,
You're beggin' me to let it go, let it go,

Ignorance,
It runs so deep,
And I know sheep,
Even when I give em' my flow sweet,
They don’t see,
Cause their mental powers are so week,
Minds made up are so steeped,
In the bullshit that these shepherds feed,
Sincerely or by lies and greed,
Blind lead the blind to believe the creed,
And thats DEEP sleep,
Got me explaining in circles like repeat,
Then delete,
Then Repeat,
I’m not just trying to sound elite,
Talkin' bout personal defeat,
I do care,
Together were one, were complete,
This one's for all of my people who can't sleep.

Well I know,
You know,
I know,
But instead of beggin' me to let you know,
You're beggin' me to let it go, let it go,
Track Name: Fall Into Forever
We fall into forever,
All the time,
We crawl out together,
We will find,

We can make tonight,
The greatest night,
Of our lives alright,
Come on and lets do it,
Lets do it tonight alright,

It's got everything to do with how you see,
Cause effected naturally,
When you turn your back on greed,
And you finally step out of the factory,
Dramatically,
Unattached you see,
Infiltrate humanity,
Illuminate illmaculately,
That's my simple strategy,
You say you wanna fight,
You can rep the dark,
But I'll bring the light,
And I shine so magnificent,
You'll swear that I was heaven sent,
Maybe even benevolent,
If your ego can be hesitant,
Get it past the reptilian brain to get the lesson in,
Philosopher King, I'm still repin' it,
Classes in session, on the truth, I'm professin' it,
The sword of truth is my weapon,
And I'm cutting through the bullshit and the Irrelevant,
The cup of life is nourishin' and blessin' this,
Takin' precedence, in resonance,
In the present precipice
Of my majestic elegance,
Philosophizing with a hammer,
False God damner,
Yes it is,
Maybe just a little bit negative,
And messy kid,
But you too can shine so bright,
Without the filters of your id,
Outside of the confines of your mind,
And the values where you live,

Fall into forever,
All the time,
We crawl out together,
We will find,
