Track Name: Animal feat. Skillit
I'd rather do more walking on these beats than talking in these streets
That's more for the impeached
I transform to a beast in his prime time
I'm foul mouthed with it no cavities
Covered in dirt, so down to earth
But out to win awards based on performance like Gravity
So why they're tryna get a rise?
Probably cos I cause calamities without a cavalry just casualties
Been AWOL for a bit, you wanna know the latest
Still a dude of a nature to make the kinda statement
I'd jump inside the matrix
Eat the red and blue pill, just to see what the taste is
Then suggest some flavours, you will respect the status
Forget who you came with
And to the haters, when I've made it too late to catch the vapours
Change your lane in this game like Sega

(Chorus)
What you tell them now?
2nd time round for this animal
Call this the 'Battle of the Alamo'
What you tell them now?
Pardon my grammar though
Just tryna catch your ears from your gramophone
What you tell them now?
2nd time round for this animal
This the battle of the Alamo
What you tell them now?
Pardon my grammar though
Just tryna catch your ears from this gramophone
So what you tell them now?

Dolo I'm loco whole vision total in slo-mo
On the corner of lust and greed, looking for hope yo
Don't know, wonder why I'm oh so far from home though
And I won't know, I'm not solo,
But all I see is certain vocals getting promo
And it's so cold knowing the game is in a choke hold but I won't fold
If I focus walk the right path I'll make it through the swarm of locusts
Gonna start and end this jawn with the same train of thought on-the-low though
Roll in a Polo, with the dreams of a Honda Civic
Hoping one day the Merc’s waiting for me to jump up in it
Hungers infinite, want the funds but don't wanna pivot
I just hopped out the Lambo pardon if I'm cocky with it
But I don't own that whip, back to what I am rolling with
Reality's very clear 'bout what I can hold in both my wrists
Wanna play hard then-I-gotta work hard, or else know the risk
Toast the fifth, nah I chose to win

(Chorus)

//Pardon my grammar though
There's rules to this, I wrote my own manual so I could cope
The carbon copies on a downward slope amounts to average flows
Who we gonn' hold accountable?
I'll one trick 'em spit another BattleAxe!?
Just shock value? That ain't my habitat
Them gimmicks that image figures you been dead
More impressive than a speech from Nick Clegg
Beat made by my brother call this incest
Money to make with Loose Threads so I invest
Like Clint in them old movies, east meets west
This town ain't big enough for-the both of us want the world instead
I should be gassed, find me with my mama jama,
That's my present, god's gift like Dalai Lamas
To match it, I stay fresh, dipped in Mayamada
My niggy proposition? I got the answer

(Chorus)
Track Name: Writer's Block *
This writer’s block’s like the water's damned, flowing like a stream but the pipe is clogged
Cause more stress than a man's wife divorced
And she took the house, and the kids that your life has bought
That she never earned so this is robbery via the courts
Traffic jam all collision everything
Going nowhere at the speed of light except the wind
Maybe it will whisper something for me to pen
Bad predicament to explain, let me begin
It's like I’m going blind
Can’t see why I’m spending all this time, on a line, and I can't cross it
The strife's constant
Milllion thoughts on my mind, but it’s not helping what I am tryna accomplish
I can't piece 'em together, man this is puzzling
How can I look at the box when it comes from within
The director script writer, Brothers Grimm
Surely it can't be this hard to score another win
When Ghost spoke? Told me never force a flow
So if it's not on auto, then it borrows my control
Though the ball of the pen rolls, let it roll right out your soul
And when momentum takes its toll, I gotta break it down some more
Good advice Tone, but you know me
Closer to the end? Not even remotely!
And I'm a battery short for the Midas touch
Lego, Duplo, size of the writer's block

(Chorus)
Time has stopped, I can’t push the pen to write
Holding me to ransom man what a crime
More than money that’s on my mind
But I
I pray the words come to me, the words come to me
The words come to me this time
I pray the words come to me this time
It ain't just the rhymes, that define, all the lines, WRITER'S BLOCK

This writer’s block has gotta stop
Or I'll… I'll... Just... find something else to do
Procrastination waiting for me need a miracle
Watching American idol, recitals I can ridicule
Looking around the room, inspiration is minimal
My phone's on loud but no doubt, I'll search around
Clearly in denial like I might've just missed a call
How, mystical, now, here is a thought
Better now if I find something hard
And I don't start then I won't fail a fool's problem but
Between the great things we can't do and the little things we won't do
The danger is we'll do nothing
I never claimed my diction, slapstick but
Jokes on me my thinking, captive
I’ll flip a line from Summer High ain't catch the triple meaning
Say it another time bulimia is sublime
Green-eyed from my past life I remember the nights
Deprived, of time my imagination described
The kind, of adventure adolescents would hide
One’s mind, naivety and courage combined
That was then, this is now it's like my time is up
The pad is wondering why, I won't confide as much
‘Bout to put the pen down and wait - I forgot
To busy writing to note I broke through my writer's block

(Chorus)
Track Name: The Argument
I'm one day closer to the truth, running towards the answer
Word to Locky cos he ran farther
Closer to peace of mind that's what I'm after
But if you had a piece of my mind, you'd probably need the pie chart so
My hand hugs the pen like a martyr
I sketch the art, maybe one day I’ll draw a Gallardo
You hear the song though
It means I'm closer to Yoshida Minako
Closer to the man getting rid of me, sickening
It's strictly business never personal learnt that from E and P
Tryna stack the P the government is tryna take the P
Need therapy, slow they take dough away from OAPs
I'm, closer to, peering in the sky
Maybe I’ll ;ook, long enough, losing fear of light
Come in my window light my tomorrow bring a dearer wife
Closer to sharing if the pairing is right, I’m closer to…

(Chorus)
//Another dawn, another day, another night
I'm-one day closer
Another born, another reign, another life
I'm-one day closer-to…
Closer, I'm one day closer
I'm one day closer to everything

(Chorus)

Like conscious of mind
Knowledge desire of what
Tomorrow will hide, what will I'll find
More than nothing inside
My spirit's guide past the narcissistic vibes
A harsher divide
I’m crossing the Nile, to pastures divine
Uphill I climb
Yeah, closer to you
@AaronJaunty get closer to this dude
Lean over the balcony, get a closer view
Rewind the rhyme dissect, meaning number 2 I’m closer…
Leveraging blessings with weapons of words
Never forgetting the lessons I've learnt
Less the apprentice more legend
Happy endeavours for whatever it’s worth, I’m closer to
NO! I have a little more time left and I’m next
With a voice to get off of my chest, Poor Righteous
Call me Father Jaunty I digress Lord I guess
I can follow closer the right steps
Hoping one day I will hear angels sing
Through it all protected from devil’s kin
Brought from God, like the songs Dwele bring
One Day Closer to Everything…
Track Name: To Love Not feat. Coco **
And another one, coming to a close
Difficult fresh breeze ease dressed in different clothes
(It’s not you it’s me) case closed
Wish you were a little quicker to change hoes huh
If you knew, you’d run and hide your eyes
When autumn falls you know what’s up, the ending weren’t a nice surprise
Besides, how could you know; following the night
You’d see clear blue skies, filling you with new pride
Fed cooked breakfast with the good catch-up but now you’re
Fed up, what to do? Your feelings weren’t a small measure
Are you a man? Refuse to let her get you under the weather
Or do you, plummet can’t, stomach the pressure huh
She moved clouds around town with her poker face
But now permanence of this joker’s fate
(It’s over) you hear the echo, echo
Eh yo it’s over, it’s time to let go let go huh

(Chorus)
To have or to have not
Does he love you, does she love you not?
The flask was half empty, the glass is half full
Take the path gently, let the past past you
To have or to have not
Does he love you, does she love you not?
The flask was half empty, the glass is half full
Take the path gently, let the past past you

So you wake up from your dream but it wasn’t a dream
You remember everything in between
Sitting there with your ‘June 12th Beckham face’
Commence the scheming, for the thrill of the chase
You’re mingling wild, ‘cos you’re single and proud
The difference now, getting over your girl will take more kisses than smiles
You’re seeing an old world ain’t seen in a while
Witnessing the rebirth of a sinful child
Stuck in the game like a stud, to the mud
But you ain’t tryna find love, in the club huh-huh,
Just a skirt or two, up for some fun
Later for the, hugs now for the rub-a-dub
Easy as pie, nothing meaningful in the slice
But the sweets you are feening is nice
You hear your name, you’re getting wild for the night
You hear your name, just question if it’s time for a child

(Chorus)

All of these ladies sure enough come and go
Until you find the one that you’ve been waiting for
No more of that “What’s your name, what’s your size?”
You’re looking at her like she’s the babe of your future life
Causing pain when not at your side
Full ones old Cadbury’s logo
Back off, like she’s accustomed to hold poles
But she’s not a hoe though, we taank God!
I swear, I’m caught up in the rapture again
I mean, how could YOU ever let it happen again
I mean, who am I fooling
if this song weren’t about me, only then is it ‘bout you
If you know the feeling, well, then you’re about truth
Seek your friends around you if you’re about proof
It’s wifey time and you’re allowed too
You need her, like nothing else in this life
Nah you want her to be your future wife

(Chorus)

Does he love you, does she love you not?
It’s a tale, way too familiar tale
Does she love you, does he love you not?
Heart breaks, heart mends, heart then prevails
Does he love you, does she love you not?
It’s a tale, way too familiar tale
Does she love you, does he love you not?
Heart breaks, heart mends, heart then prevails
Track Name: Closer feat. K.I.N.E.T.I.K.
I'm one day closer to the truth, running towards the answer
Word to Locky cos he ran faster
Closer to peace of mind that's what I'm after
But if you had a piece of my mind you'd probably need the pie chart
So my hand hugs the pen like a martyr
I sketch the art, maybe one day I’ll draw a Gallardo

Closer to the man getting rid of me, sickening
It's strictly business never personal learnt that from E and P
Tryna stack the P, the government is tryna take the P

Maybe I’ll look, long enough, losing fear of light
Come in my window light my tomorrow bring a dearer wife
Closer to sharing if the pairing is right, I’m closer to…

(Chorus)
Another dawn another day another night
I'm one day closer
Another born another reign another life
I'm one day closer to...
Closer, I'm one day closer
I'm one day closer to everything

(K.I.N.E.T.I.K.)
Yeah, I'm getting closer to having all of my questions answered
Closer to a place where there's no stress or dramas
Closer to Jehova, no more scratching my head
'Cos then I would have found out what really happens when we're dead
Whether I see a postponed or early fate
Whether I walk through or have to pick the locks at the pearly gates
I'm close to seeing my loved ones that passed away
And this is hard to say, but rest in peace to Pastor Ray
It's nearly been a week since you took your last breath
I never thought I'd talk about you in the past tense
There's no shortcuts
So everyday, trying to find my way from what I want to what the Lord does
Closer to a state of acceptance
Closer to the end of me living my days reckless
And knowing what's invested in me
I'm closer to becoming that man that I was destined to be, closer..

(Chorus)

Like conscious of mind, knowledge, desire of what
Tomorrow will hide, what will I'll find
More than nothing inside
My spirit's guide past the narcissistic vibes
A harsher divide
I’m crossing the Nile, to pastures divine
Uphill I climb
Yeah ,closer to you
@Aaron Jaunty get closer to this dude
Lean over the balcony, get a closer view
Rewind the rhyme dissect, meaning number 2 I’m closer…
Leveraging blessings with weapons of words
Never forgetting the lessons I've learnt
Less the apprentice more legend
Happy endeavours for whatever it’s worth, I’m closer to...
NO! I have a little more time left and I’m next

One Day Closer to Everything…
Track Name: The Anthem feat. K-Nite 13 & Skillit
I snuck up with my brother from another mother
This I time I got another brother from another mother
"I Think You Get the Point!" and some
Robbing your, ears with this Anthem, stick your hands up, make some noise
Gotta be deaf and numb, only way you're not feeling it
My instinct, with my ink stick, that’s my instrument
And I’m flicking it, kaisho, strokes different
Calligraphy, epiphany telling me scripture’s sick
You hear the flow, from depths within, the penmanship
Jury acquitting kids, like Zimmerman, ridiculous
Tell 'em from your lungs that you had enough
They say there's no justice there's just us
They don't want me to put these black gloves on
Black panther not murderer in case you judged wrong
Mark Dugan, like it's nothing
We riot in your name, light a flame this is The Anthem

(K-Nite 13)
Don't let the baby face fool you, I've got a screw loose
You make the kinda music I snooze to
You get a couple digits on YouTube and get gassed
But never touch the bitches you move to or get smashed
Close to the end like a shift on a Thursday
Still draw your chick on my worst day
Couldn't own a bit of my wordplay, your style is too basic
Face it, you make tracks for the A-list but don't playlist
Fake shit, make shift, bait chicks
Thinking you're a phoenix, can never keep that flame lit
Hit 'em with the penis and now she's going ape shit
Nigga I'm a genius, and different from these bait pricks
You're an epic fail, fuck a record sale
Your chicks on her knees, my dick's raised like it's read in braille
Your set is stale, oh f'ing hell
I hope you get f'd in jail, nigga

(Skillit)
I gotta go battle, 'cos I couldn't think of a concept
Go raggo like, fuck the nonsense
Beyond strength, Aretha Franklin, kill them softly
BattleAxe, get them stabbed in half like King Joffrey
Can't stop this, like Rain when it's after dark
With your wife, she's topless like she Ned Stark
When we did the damn thing, I don't even know her name
Jane Doe got the crows, flocking to bone like Jon Snow
But this ain't the Game of Thrones
You dun know, different show, music reflect different colours like kaleidoscopes
A wiley folk, the flow I got, it got me cruising
Try to stop the wave, you're gonna see that you're fishing for a bruising
Chumps step up to get beat down
It's all loss, get ta' petrified, you'd better recognise, I'm D-Lo Brown
Your Drozdov, 2 bars and you're dead, remain calm or you're dead
Put these rappers to sleep like there's two arms on your head, Skillit
Track Name: For the Stars ***
I'm chillin’ rekindling my kinship with Mars
The moon’s jealous wondering why I’m grilling the stars
The stars think, I’m unwilling to finish my tasks
When it’s planets I can’t even get my ambitions past
The feeling if it’s lasts, and more importantly what I’m envisioning to grasp
By rhyming hymns and psalms
Clean my craft, the themes unlike parks
More like late teens park themed dark paths
Until my dying day, tryna stay humble
Making this music for the zoos and the jungles
Rather be on a stage near you than C-list starve
Celebs in abundance
Get me outta there so I can be my opening act
Rather be that than a closer in fact
Let me share with you the way to keep the loving intact
Relax you wanna be a sheep? Just don’t be the wolf in the pack

(Chorus)
This one’s for the stars
The stars, for the stars
The stars, for the stars
For the stars, yeah, this one’s for you
This one’s for the stars
The stars, for the stars
The stars, for the stars
For the stars, yeah, this one’s for you

Set your sights high, you wanna be the king in the pack?
Better make sure the queen’s got your back
A sad death is what you die, head facing the sky
'Cos the clothes never fit the guy like Macbeth
This ones’s for the stars! Yeh, you, you and you
And after all of the nagging is through
Finish school, then let your parents miss you
Head for the stars like a space missile
They said that you would never make it
Like you didn’t equip the dough to bake with
This game ain’t like a toy waiting-to-play with
When there are serious stakes in all the favourites
How you viewing your future?
I’m doing me, yes, but what about you bruh?
You stuck in your past, or, you trying to move on
Forever a student, then maybe a tutor but never a loser

(Chorus)

Return to the very definition of it
Couldn’t leave me further from the fame
Even if everybody had to know my name
The legacy would be protected by the sane
They thump chests outta respect, they claim me to be
A master of ceremony, believe
How could I not wanna be seen in a three piece on TV
With awards at the ceremonies, for real
Metal mentalities coupled with fantasies
Got me flying galaxies free-fall
The champions want the queens cream in medals
Swam with the rest now imma leave-her-pool
I am the Gerrard of the team was the Torres of your dreams
The Carragher for you fiends
Everything in between, the spirit from the fans of the league
The fam understands what this means

(Chorus)
