Track Name: On It
and am on it like white on rice
like you this kid his flow is nice
eye on the prize through the lows and highs
point to the cross and all that implies
never satisfied always reaching to the sky
and when everything is done you gonna see me shine
shine through the dark when the time has come
i got full access i approach the throne
and am on it like LeSean hand on the ball
feet on the ground pounding on the line
cause am never gonna fumble never ever let it go
gunning for the end this is my super bowl
and am on it on it just ask me why
and am on it on it pointing to my God
and am on it on it live it till i die
and am on it on it shine real bright


and am on it like fresh black ink
so fresh it smears when you hear what i think
flip thorough the pages and know my heart
check the highlights cause that's my whole life
on it like Howard playing on the paint
like magic to the touch I got that range
so when you ask why I tell you that am on it
like 50 on the mic always talking about money

and am on it like a tattoo inked on the flesh
like that crease on your shirt permanent press
free to express in other words confess
never bite my tongue got the freedom of the press
on it like i need to hit the bench press
carry all this stress so i need a bigger chest
am on it like i can't live with out it
talking about God and the way that he got me
Track Name: aDios
Good bye to religion I stand by faith
pass the valley of decision to the life that he gave
set free by the blood no marker for the grave
a slave to the cause but renege from the laws
when the whip hit the back he bore them stripes
broke the curtain down and read me my rights
or rather took my wrongs and all that I had done
now this little light of mine is my new theme song
never one to prolong or stretch out the point
let's get to the meat and be done with the bones
it was flesh for flesh and pain for pain
he paid the cost but it wont be vain
30 silver coins, lots for his clothes
and every single strike plus the blood that he lost
it will never be forgotten like my second born day
when I began to live through the life that He gave

aDios hermano Adios amigo
say goodbye yo me despido
lo dejo todo y yo le sigo
and wave my hand and say bye bye

I gotta go now I see you later
nos vemos pronto I say bye bye

Me despido de este mundo aunque el cuepo este presente
lo dejo todo atras estoy conciente
del regalo que yo tengo el sacrificio que fue hecho
el valor de las acciones y el precio que pago
la sangre que fluyo cubre mi pasado
mi presente aclaro mi futuro aseguro
vivo para el porque sin el no tengo vida
el mundo lo que ofrece es una vida sufrida
aDios a este mundo pues hay uno mejor
donde el temor no existe y nunca hay dolor
aDios al pensamiento que es muy tarde para mi
mientras tenga yo aliento al cielo puedo ir
no es por lo que hago esto no es ganado
si eso fuera haci nunca podria pagarlo
es basado en amor, fe y el perdon
que Dios me dio a mi y lo tiene para ti
Track Name: The Call
Yes God, I heard your call
Here I am I left it all
took that step of faith free fall
stretch out your arms catch me here I come

Yes God, I heard your call
Here I am, I left it all
took that step of faith - free fall
stretch out your arms catch me here I come

Lord I heard your voice come through without noise
i pick it like a call answered it hello?
you said to follow you let everything else go
trust in what I say cause you heard my prayer
so I wanna do your will follow you till the end
you gave purpose to life here on this earth
you got a perfect plan you got me in your hand
know me better than myself like the lines of your palm
so I let go let loose stepped back
so you can take hold hold tight give sight
left it all behind no more 9-5
nail it to the cross cause I got a higher cause
and I look to your word the promise of your grace
to fulfill my needs day after day
cause in God I trust I feel the cost
I know is not in vain the feeling of this pain

So I opened up my hand and let it all go
gave him all my life and there was no remorse
I knew the storm was coming I thought I was prepare
It was so Phil collins I could feel it in the air
but is more than what I bargain more than i can bear
my shoulders sagging down am hanging by a thread
my debts keep pilling up smaller credit line
check bounce so hard i live on borrow time
i try to keep smiling while i breaking inside
all I see is clouds and no bright light
no money for the rent the food is almost gone
If i buy some milk guess I'll have to walk home
so i give it to the Lord and walk the fine line
between me and the flesh Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
I feel like am walking in my own little desert
and every step I take is met with resistance
Never did I think I would end up in this place
God how long will you hide your face?

Yes God, I heard your call
Here I am, I left it all
took that step of faith - free fall
stretch out your arms catch me here I come

it seems so long since i seen the sun
since I felt the warmth the embrace of the one
this journey is long got more to go
got more to grow so I gotta let it go
though the pain is strong and I feel alone
I take this road cause it will lead me home
though i lose control lose sight of the goal
I play my role cause I refuse to lose my soul
I know He is faithful and will hear my cry
will return all the Joy and dry my eye
He will bless all I do and see the sacrifice
no matter how it ends He is always by my side
though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear not evil I am save by grace
to live to love to step out in faith
if I had to do it over i would do it the same
Track Name: All I Want
and all i want is to do something that really matters
but all the things I touch seem to always shatter
and I feel like the black sheep of the family
my Winslow call me eddie
and all i wanna do is try to play my part
but the more I say the lines the more it falls apart
my reality show with a two bit actor
it's been canceled maybe fear was a factor
and I've read seek the kingdom first
and everything else will fall into place
i taught i did that when i stepped off that cliff
falling to your hands but it feels like i missed
things don't always seem like the way they should be
and this first step might be misstep
am adding up all my steps - coming up with less
multiply my thoughts - am such a mess

and all I wanna do is follow your steps
but all i tend to do is live with regrets
and all I wanna do is look at your face
but all i tend to do is fall on my face
and all I wanna do be filled with your grace
but all I tend to do is act with some hate
and all I wanna do is finish this race
but all i tend to do is fall out of place

and all i want to do is live to the fullest
my moves your will the perfect motives
that's so far from were I am now
frustrated wit it all wish it end it now
I feel lost feel tired feel miserable
feeling like cain wishing i was able
mayday my plane is going down
highjacked by my thoughts the way i feel now
calling out your name, can hear you now
scream a little louder to get through the clouds
it's lynsanity the way it played out
began full of life but ended in doubt

and all I wanna do is follow your steps
but all i tend to do is live with regrets
and all I wanna do is look at your face
but all i tend to do is fall on my face
and all I wanna do be filled with your grace
but all I tend to do is act with some hate
and all I wanna do is finish this race
but all i tend to do is fall out of place

all I want to do is be the light in the dark
the flame in the night that came out from your spark
but what's left is a puff of smoke
burn through my life till ashes come out
i max payne through these doubts in my head
leave it for dead full of mental lead
all I want is to do is something that has meaning
defines what i do and goes beyond feelings
my heart deceives what I can't see
I need to murder it and hope to be free
I need to follow and just believe
nancy kerrigan on my knees

and all I wanna do is follow your steps
but all i tend to do is live with regrets
and all I wanna do is look at your face
but all i tend to do is fall on my face
and all I wanna do be filled with your grace
but all I tend to do is act with some hate
and all I wanna do is finish this race
but all i tend to do is fall out of place

and all I wanna do is something that really matters
make a change be different than i was
all I wanna do is play my part
learn His lines and hit my mark
and all I wanna do is live to the fullest
do your will regardless of the rest
and all I wanna do is be the light in the dark
let it shine through my heart - tony spark
all i wanna do is something that has meaning
beyond these words put em into action
all I wanna do is answer your call
fight through the doubt know you'l work it out
Track Name: Out of Time
Some days am gonna win some days am gonna lose
some days am hanging on there's nothing more to do
Some days am riding high some days am on the floor
some days i just don't care I wanna let it go
Some days I got my swag Some days am getting bagged
Some days ain't meant to be i wish it just a dream
Some days I hit the mark Some days I gonna miss
Some days I just hurt but i still need to live
cause the sun is gonna shine real bright in the sky
open up my eyes is gonna be alright
I feel the pain that you feel I feel the hurt that you feel
I know what's the deal it feels so real
eye water coming out like the pipe busted out
damn is overflowing with not sign of a drought
seems like everybody listens but still can't hear
surrounded by your people but you still disappear


my time is running out
am running out of time
am pouring out my heart
is all in the line
am running out of time
my time is running out
am pouring out my heart
can you hear it now?

Now life it ain't easy there's always something crazy
hope I pass the test cause problems always test me
the voice in my head is telling me let go
but my heart is in the struggle though is hanging by a thread
and i can't help but wonder what if I let go
just take my last breath sing my last song
the feeling is so strong the urge got me thinking
this is real talk i wonder who will miss me
I need I want and I cut I bleed
scream out loud but still can't feel
I hurt and cry and feel alone
no one knows what going on
somedays I wanna live some days I wanna die
someday I got peace it's all I got
someday I feel crazy just like the hood
somedays is just that i feel mis understood
but i know it's all lies is the devil in disguised
Just need to kneel down and talk to Jesus Christ

Am just looking for some peace i need to release
looking for the answer so I am on my knees
the load is kinda heavy it got really me worry
of stepping out of bounds cause line is blurry
and so i feel so lost and so out of place
i try to step it up but am falling out of pace
stressing much more living much less
i need to feel God and know that I am bless

my time is running out
am running out of time
am pouring out my heart
is all in the line
am running out of time
my time is running out
am pouring out my heart
can you hear it now?
Track Name: Break Me
break my heart break my mold
break my life break it all
take it in your hands do what you want with it
to shape and form in which ever way you want
i'll follow every word and your commands
put your will in my plans not I but you in me
break my life off into hundred million pieces
it's not about me - no more excuses
is all about you what you want how you wanted
no matter how I feel I'll obey that's for real
so break my will make it yours every day
and keep it on a loop - let's see the replay

is God above all otherwise is nothing
is like aiming for the stands but got no swing
Is God above all otherwise is nothing
like the Roc without jay has no bling
Is God above all otherwise is nothing
float like butterfly but a bee with no sting
Is God above all otherwise is nothing
an upside down kingdom and God is still king
Track Name: Use Me
the streets are full of folks who walk without hope
hungry for the money like they fiending for the dope
hustle for a living while living for the hustle
slanging in the block fingering on the glock
shovel some dirt aka doing work
packaging the rock and avoid getting merk
but they feel something missing
like a gun without the bullet
a rapper with no spit a goon without a hit
looking for the thrill the meaning of life
confused by the lies and all them bright lights
can't see through the smoke vision is blur
so eyes stay closed tripping everywhere
the lure of the streets got head swolled up
the fall comes quick here's the wake up call
reality hits hard humph big stick
God was never in the frame but should of been in the pic

The streets are full of folks who's at the end of the road
God please use my walk to show them there's hope
that you're still in the frame so let them get the picture
all you want for them is for them to have a future
where the sun still rises the past still fades
clipping off mistakes you cover them with grace
more than just in passing let'em see your face
cause you are not a phase - myspace
God used my voice to let'em know they have a choice
between life and death and end with no remorse
God use me to bring light bring your word into sight
never let my flame dim but flicker in the dark
bring flavor to this world let them savor every word
open every ear so they get this message loud and clear
Use me to connect and no be put on hold
my voice can be the ringtone i pray they take the call
