Track Name: Dotted Lines feat. stoop lee, Ashten Kale
Ya see I got a lot of things
That I really wanna say
And that I really need you to know
We live a life full of hesitation
Maybe it's time that we get up and go
And I wanna let you know

That if you find your dreams come true
Maybe it's not so bad
But we don't talk too much these days

You and me don't get along anymore
And there's no way to fake it
You and me can't get along anymore
But nothing's forever

You
You said that we were wrong
You said that we belong
I know, I know, I know
And you know, and you know, and you know

You and me don't get along anymore
And there's no way to fake it
You and me can't get along anymore
But it won't last forever

(Stoop lee)

Shoulda warned me in advance
Same thing that put me in a trance
Watch me rewind, relapse
Remind me that's inside me past what's passed
Prolly get high off contact
Contact me through the chest
Contact you while you rest
I don't even lie, I confess
I ain't even try
My intent - we gon' fly
A ribbon in the sky so immense
You feel it right? No sixth sense
You got your hard of hearts, but my sixteens dent
Yeah my sixteen's dense
Fade to black and back to master plan - save the town.
Never seen a dark knight shine to now, huh
Come through, everybody slow down
Turn the lights off
Slow down, slow mo
I'm your new slow bro
Come through, everybody know, got a new flow
I got a nappy little fro but you love it
We going so high, rise about it like

You and me don't get along anymore
And there's no way to fake it
You and me can't get along anymore
But it won't last forever

(group chant)
You and me don't get along anymore
And there's no way to fake it
You and me can't get along anymore
But it won't last forever

***ORIGINAL POETRY BY ASHTEN KALE

Savannah, remember when you called me
When I was walking down the street
And the wind was blowing, it was too dark to see
And you said, "Somehow in my grand imagination
You will remember me poppy-lipped;
My bare skin covered with what you've done;
Hiroshima kisses and nuclear bomb words"
And then you told me you loved me

Her little wings tapped against the golden plastic blinds
"Is this infinite enough for you?" she asked
I was so dazed, I forgot to smile
And then my senses told me to, and I said "Yes,
Plenty infinite."

She jumped down from the platform and penetrated the floorboards;
I broke the glass and sunk into the basement
Singing in spirals, I caught her on the way to the bottom
As we dropped gently onto the plush concrete;
Cushioning kisses and killer passionate blisses
Until sleepy morning dismisses

Do you remember when I picked you up and put you in the air?
You started biting on my body, and I start grabbing your hair
I don't miss those days, no, I don't really miss em
I try to tell myself that I don't miss em, can't dismiss em,
They be running through my mind all day

There's nothing I can do
And I miss you
Track Name: Feeling It Now feat. Dan Sagher
Words, they don't mean nothing
They don't mean nothing when you tell me
That they're anything more than words
Cos you've been at the forefront of my mind
Reducing me to nothing every time

Every time

You can't understand
Anything I tell ya
You're saying I'm your man
Then you find another
I ain't got a plan
I think I'm going under
But what I said before

I'm feeling it now
(Feeling it, I'm feeling it, I'm feeling it now)

I can be your only one
And you can always ask it all to me
And parachutes will catch the fall in love
Just make sure to tell me dear
Tell me when the coast is clear
I am always waiting here for you

I'm feeling it now
(Feeling it, I'm feeling it, I'm feeling it now)
Track Name: Detours
Taking lots of detours
Straying off the route that you told me to take
I didn't take it
I tried my own thing this time

I'm hoping that it rains soon
I need some time to clear my mind from all this heat, my girl
From all this heat

I still seem to be
Going down the route you told me
And now you're the one who's taking the detour
I still seem to be
Going down the route you told me
And now you're the one, and now you're the one

Dwelling in the basement
Haven't seen no daylight for days
Somebody take my place

I never hear my phone ring
Let's argue bout some new things for once
Oh, for once

Don't let me fall into the depths of your love
Depths of your love

I still seem to be
Going down the route you told me
And now you're the one who's taking the detour
I still seem to be
Going down the route you told me
And now you're the one
And now you're the one

Oh I see the truth
I'm taking the path I know that leads to you
Track Name: Phillip's Bicycle feat. DJ Shafer
I can't believe I'm better than I ever was
I can't believe I'm better

On my bicycle I go too fast
The little shops that I ride past
The people's faces, they make me laugh
I approach the curve and stop to see
A hill of true adversity
I think to myself, can anybody see me?

I can't believe I'm better than I ever was
I can't believe I'm better

I am taken to a forest path
Where I trample autumn leaves and grass
Sipping root beer from my backpack
My shoes are worn, my helmet's loose
I packed a sandwich and some juice
The wind and I have made a little truce

Doo doo, doo doo doo doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo doo, doo doo doo doo-doo-doo-doo
Track Name: What Am I 2 U feat. Austen
Dancing on my own, it make me feel good
No I never had a problem doing that
Girl I'm gonna check up on my phone, it make me feel good
I'm leaving and I'm never coming back

Cos I've been trying to explain that it's been difficult
For me to understand just what you want
Girl there's just so many things I been tripping on,
I've been tripping on,
And one of them is your heart

I know you've made yourself a name
You're at the shows playing your game
It's been so long since I've come round
Your voice became my favorite sound

Your voice became my favorite sound

This this that
It's always something new
And all of the games that we play, girl
I'm always gonna lose
This this that
You check it off your list
But you never think twice
Cos it comes down to this

I know you've made yourself a name
You're at the shows playing your game
It's been so long since I've come round
Your voice became my favorite sound

Your voice became my favorite sound

(Austen)
I know my left and right brain
And my heart have been arguing
About these so-called meetings
To break up my heart again
Taking place and love centers
I'd like to recollect
And offer up my respect
Those guys are smart
A sure select

Kind of their kind
And proper subversive
But clearly aggressive
And super coercive
I'm trying my best at just being assertive
And aiming up laterally in my verses
I'm aiming up there
Right at your face
So I can tell you
It's pretty great

I know you've made yourself a name
You're at the shows playing your game
It's been so long since I've come round
Your voice became my favorite sound

Your voice became my favorite sound

Ooh, I'm complaining
Feelings I've been feigning
Say just what I feel?
Man I'm scared of what you'll make it
Cos I tell the truth,
I might not believe in myself
I'm nothing to you
But just a dusty record on the shelf

You're my lady
Said we need to take our own time?
You're my baby
Does this mean you're leaving me behind?
She said lately,
Vision's so hazy
What am I to you to me,
I'm caught up on the maybe

AH!
Track Name: Sidewalk Junkie (with Ashten Kale)
There she goes, there she goes, there she goes, there she
There she goes, there she goes, there she goes, she's a
Sidewalk junkie
She's a sidewalk junkie

There she goes, walking a touch those hips
There she's walking makes my mind
(With those hips)
Sidewalk junkie
Sidewalk junkie

She looks around with something to say
That's a sign to stay away
You cannot get your heart back
You cannot get your head back
You cannot get your mind back
You cannot get your friends back now
Ooh, she'll take it away
Whatever you want man, she'll take it away

Sidewalk junkie
Sidewalk junkie
Sidewalk junkie
Sidewalk junkie

She has a knife in the corner of her heel
She's walkin round with thoughts made of steel
You, y-you can find you walk the streets
She'll blow your mind
She'll take your mind and steal your time
Never get it back, never get it back
There is no rewind

Sidewalk junkie
Sidewalk junkie

She thinks she got you in the palm of her hand
Well there is something that she just don't understand

Cos I'm a sidewalk junkie
Sidewalk junkie
Track Name: Hollow
Feeling out a way to let it off,
You said you'd never go too far
I'm feeling out a way to let it off,
You said you'd never go too far
I'm waiting for the solace in my mind,
It's hollow and my eyes feel blind
I just need the solace in my mind,
It's hollow and my eyes feel blind

Follow me down to a river that's running as cold as your heart
You take all my love for granted, I'm ready to see what we are\
Follow me down to a river that's running as cold as your heart
You take all my love for granted, I'm ready to see what we are

Hollow, don't you follow
I'm hollow, don't you follow the rules of love?
Follow the rules of love

No love, no life, no love, no
No love, no life, no love, no
No love, no life, no love, no
But my heart stays
Tripping in the fast lane

No love, no life, no love, no
No love, no life, no love, no
No love, no life, no love, no
But my heart stays
But my heart stays

Follow me down to a river that's running as cold as your heart
You take all my love for granted, I'm ready to see what we are
Follow me down to a river that's running as cold as your heart
You take all my love for granted, I'm ready to see what we are
Track Name: Formula
I followed you
Girl you know I followed you
But you're saying something and you're doing something else
I followed you
Cos you know my heart is true
I keep second guessing all the things you ever said to me

You said to me I'm not your man anymore
So what am I to do now that you're gone?

(And we're in the night)
Girl I want you
(By the candlelight)
And I love you
But I don't wanna find what I can't realize
(And we're in the night)
Girl I need you
(By the candlelight)
Do you need me
Just tell me your formula

(Pius)

So lemme flip the script
Cos I got a lot of problems I'm tryna circumvent
Going in circles leading to nowhere
Same place we at, well we been here
Saying I love you but do I mean it
Or is it just a particular feeling
That I been feeling
It's hard to tell
I just know I been fighting off all these demons
They taking me places when I'm alone
I tried to tell you, you couldn't even conceive it
Thinking back to what you asked that one night
I wanna be together and you still want it, right?
Well lemme think about it
And I'll have an answer for you in the next twenty-four hours
But instead I probably took about twenty four hundred showers
Tryna wash the guilt off
Cos this shit costs
Said she tryna get knocked up
I mean knocked off
But I said no, I mean I said yes
But I must digress cos

(And we're in the night)
Girl I want you
(By the candlelight)
And I love you
But I don't wanna find what I can't realize
(And we're in the night)
Girl I need you
(By the candlelight)
Do you need me
Just tell me your formula
