about

Based on the true story of a night in which I was nearly robbed and/or killed at gunpoint while walking home from work. Life is such a precious thing to be so easily taken away it would serve us best to respect and honor the blessing by finding our purpose and actualizing it. If we fail to honor our blessings they become curses. Like the counter rhythm on the chorus we have to constantly navigate distractions to achieve our highest potential.

lyrics

Chorus
All that I’ve seen
All that I know
All that I have to do
Is give it my all
Verse 1
There ain’t no time to think when a guns in ya face
Breath hot Mohave mouth Death Valley taste
Too close to lay chase too far to move on
Instinctual muscle memory or I’d be gone 4
I screamed be gone! At the top of my lungs
You can’t have my life! You ain’t taking my songs!
He was contemplating shooting I stood firmly looking
Right then my angel appeared the demon in him shook 8
We’re all spiritual where you lie on the spectrum?
Atheist or believer? That’s the question
There’s a lot of agnostics doing no self diagnostic
That’s self reflection fools caught up in life’s mosh pit 12
If they was honest with it like how I just did it
They would lay their guns down and justly confess with it
Or pick em up and go at the oppressor’s chest with it
While the righteous walk the earth and teach to those that’s in it 16
Chorus 1x
All that I’ve seen
All that I know
All that I have to do
Is give it my all
Counter Chorus 3x
Mics, rhymes, trips, models
Ice, dimes, whips, bottles
Mics, rhymes, trips, models
Ice, dimes, whips, bottles
Verse 2
It’s the end of another long week Friday night
You in the club with ya homies everything is tight
Some clown scuff ya kicks you lay him out with a right
Did you mean to take that man out his son’s life? 4
Boy grows up fatherless sees men mistreating his mom
Lacks the self confidence to stand up against wrong
Pretends to be a badass prevention from getting picked on
Eventually blows up his old school with a bomb 8
Now his mom has got to deal with all this media hype
Newspaper headlines what was the family life like?!
She was a widow labeled whore in boldface type
Out the window after chugging Tylenol to end her life 12
And where does she land from twelve stories up?
On the very same shoes that her dead clown scuffed
We are ripples in the water on the lives we touch
Don’t get stranded on the beach thinking you’re too much 16
Chorus 1x
All that I’ve seen
All that I know
All that I have to do
Is give it my all
Counter chorus 3x
Mics, rhymes, trips, models
Ice, dimes, whips, bottles
Mics, rhymes, trips, models
Ice, dimes, whips, bottles
Verse 3
I’m an all in type of cat ain’t one for fronting
If I feel you I got you if I don’t you’re nothing
We ain’t parker brothers and I don’t shoot dice
That’s no time for games I don’t gamble with life 4
Time is of the essence the essence is the blessing
The blessing is the gift and the gift is the lesson
The lesson is the reason and the reason is your purpose
Your purpose is your cause without which you’re worthless 8
Another hollow shell just taking up space
The walking dead flee when I step in the place
Cuz I know why I’m here, you see it in my face
I used to wander like you, was nearly erased 12
The experience of grace made me recognize my greatness
Real recognize real, you can’t replace this
Life lesson with imagery of God on the playlist
I know I am that I am he that man in the mist 16
Chorus 2x
All that I’ve seen
All that I know
All that I have to do
Is give it my all
Counter chorus 2x
Mics, rhymes, trips, models
Ice, dimes, whips, bottles
Mics, rhymes, trips, models
Ice, dimes, whips, bottles
