Track Name: The Dawn [intro]
Welcome to The Dawn!
My name is Anthm
Out The Ashtray of LA!!

let's go let's go let's go

I felt awake til' I saw the severity
do I gotta rock you asleep and take you there with me?
underneath the depths of the waters my words are air to breathe
a light in the darkness that fights to provide clarity
I'm roaming the maze
pray to illuminate it
we've been trapped in a cage
spoon fed fule for hatred
going out of control and slipping past the apex
world's on a collision course "no one will save it!"
that's the most bullshit I've heard in my life
using the tip of my quill to scratch out signs of blight
no angel wings yet I still soar to bold heights
I'm that rising sun born
push back that cold night
so hold tight to whatever you hold dear
this is the land of confusion and no truth is told here
paths littered with barbed wire you'll make your soul tear
you walking with a true lion don't you fear come on
for those that sell death
for those that sell hate
for those that take that women image pillage and rape
Anthm I'm the sun this is dawn's early break
I open them up
in hopes that it change... damn
scribbling freedom on pages
trying to reach a common ground
I seek it through the sound this hand extended out
I will not let you drown
Feel lost? now you are found
positive vibes yea we need that around
it helps the soul rejuvenate
I put my heart in it so I hope you relate
lets plan our escape before our parts finished
and they chase our stars away
you're spirit is free they can't take what you never gave
it helps the soul rejuvenate
I pour my heart and I hope you relate
lets plan our escape before our parts finished
and they chase our stars away
you're spirit is free they can't take what you never gave!
wake up I PLEAD we need to see past the lies
Mis Ojos Cafes finally bathe in the light
they aiming at our minds just to break and divide
I see hope diminishing fast and pain is on the rise
a bullet with butterfly wings
no rats in this race
attention span shortens so they quicken up the pace
I need to be aggressive so I throw it in your face
yea I can feel your pain there's only so much I can take
so when will it break
the circle that we've become
when we fighting with each other til' we die beneath the sun
a giants got it's fist and we be trapped under it's thumb
we won't rise up until we rise up as one
in the home of the gun
and the land of the fraud
people be claiming the boss without knowing the cost
understand all the weight of the souls that been lost
let you right now know that this road is still ours
so come on!
Track Name: Rolling Through The Pain
For mi corazons, my beloveds
I know things are hard right now
but we can get through this
I promise...


He said "Fuck it"
he rolling through the pain
at least he ain't lift a spoon and light it with a flame
and yea he did a couple lanes
that only helped him get passed that last freeze frame
he said "Shit, we don't even see the same things"
pray for his sister hold his mother while she screams
and he would love to intervene
but when you living in nightmares it's hard to touch dreams
even worse
he can't aim to take it away
the best he could do is help lift shit day to day
and pray the sunshine
makes the paint fade
and she responds with more than "YEA! I'm okay"
damn
she could've took it right to her grave
instead she broke for shore now she's fighting the waves
he wants to pull her close but he see's that she's drained
so he whispers in her ear
"Let's roll through the pain, fuck it"

Yea we rollin' through the pain
interlocking our hands as we go through the maze
could you push your heart closer these days
cause that's the only way we ever gonna roll through this pain I said FUCK IT
we rollin' through the pain
interlocking our hands as we go through the maze
could you push your heart closer these days
cause that's the only way we ever gonna roll through this pain

I said fuck it
I'm rolling through the pain
scribbling lines I hope in time will ease my mind's strain
I can't say that I'm drained
so I close my eyes drink water at first signs of a migraine
queen running her finger tips through my mane
thinking like shit this doesn't define
mom hugging me tight
saving her mind space
she said "Mijo you're the only place I feel that I'm safe!"
broke my heart but didn't shed on tear
just kept rubbing her back like
it's okay mom I'm here
and man it's been a longer year
but no time to dwell so hell I keep it strong yea!
helping all of my beloveds maintain
clouds cover the sky but produce no rain
I'm here to help you lift those chains
so lean on me and we can get through this pain fuck it!

Yea we rollin' through the pain
interlocking our hands as we go through the maze
could you bring your heart closer these days
cause that's the only way we ever gonna roll through this pain I said FUCK IT
we rollin' through the pain
interlocking our hands as we go through the maze
could you place your heart closer these days
cause that's the only way we ever gonna roll through this pain

roll through this pain
roll through the maze
push your heart closer these days...
Track Name: Trapped In a Box
I don't have to tell you things are bad
you know things are bad, this is a recession
look it people are afraid of losing their jobs some people don't have jobs
no money for the food
no money for the roof over our heads
people ask me
Anthm How did it get this way?
Why is it this way?
I got one word for you.... GREED

I'm watching the economy fall like I seen it coming
lemmings to the cliff tops full speed off and running
you wondering how we got where we at?
money rules the world and don't it all feel like a trap?!
think back
I don't know when you bit the line
only know mine started in 19-99
student credit card no co-sign
they were feeding off kids JC's a gold mine
it didn't hurt that most didn't know basic math
if you made it past algebra a raise of hands
yea add it up and see a simple plan
a customer that understands is a sale gone bad
the game is simply built off that
war on the masses financial combat
to show all the snakes you must first cut the grass
understand that before you sign a contract cause we...

trapped in a box
somethings'll never change
shackled in chains freedom never ever sang
going in circles everyday you feel the same
gasoline in my hand I hope they see the flames cause we
trapped in a box
and somethings'll never change
shackled in chains freedom never ever sang
going in circles everyday feels the same
gasoline in my hand I hope they see the flames

the unemployment rate match the early 80's
you know when crack was on the rise
and urban combat blew up daily?
then I was just a baby
a grown man now I keep my eyes open to the state of things lately
crazy a young father said can't make the bread to buy the bread
I'll have to go outside and rob instead
survival of the fittest out here at least his sons are fed
get it however he can probly end up dead
and I get that
make me have to sit back think about the set backs
yea I wanna click clack
hell yea I understand the thinking
like the sands in the hour glass our ass is quickly sinking
hey Mr.Governor and Mr.President
ain't it evident the pressures been destroying our residence?
even the homes on the hills have gone up in blaze
we all lost the game
why don't you show us who's to blame cause we...

trapped in a box
somethings'll never change
shackled in chains freedom never ever sang
going in circles everyday you feel the same
gasoline in my hand I hope they see the flames cause we
Track Name: So Strange ft. EQ
[EQ]
Sometimes I feel like I can't be placed
but the prospects of life keep my hands at length
and I know that every step is a chance at fate
but the second I deny it is a chance at stake
and I can't really afford to miss opportunities
even tho avoids the poor like you and me
and with the struggle comes brotherhood and unity
and I understand if you gotta pursue your dreams
so why be mad if mine comes next?
cause in the lines of checks is my success
even though as an artist we have a right to stress
cause our families gotta eat so why do mines get less?
so I sit and wonder what I gotta do for proper food
cause the Dollar Menus ain't healthy for the modern youth
even if they throw fits I ain't stopping through
cause my kids deserve better so I do what I gotta do

is our thinking so strange
look us in the eye and tells us you don't see the same things
is our thinking so strange
tell us we're the only ones in the world that wanna see change
is our thinking so strange
look us in the eye and tells us you don't see the same things
is our thinking so strange
tell us we're the only ones in the world that wanna see change

[Anthm]
so strange
how fast the world change
like the old timers say it didn't used to be this way
desensitized to it now
another youth slain another brother lost another soldier down
six feet above ground and shit gets deep
cost of living high wages low can't catch sleep
or a break for that matter
you know it's bad when shots are fired
people look away but don't scatter
test scores low
unemployments high
the country sold it's soul on a loan that's subprime
in due time we shall all see the light
but for now a brush fire will illuminate the night
and hopefully the day will bring the sun and the rain
and we can smile and pray cause it didn't used to be this way
hopefully the day will bring the sun and the rain
and we can smile and play cause it never used to be this way

is our thinking so strange
look us in the eye and tells us you don't see the same things
is our thinking so strange
tell us we're the only ones in the world that wanna see change
is our thinking so strange
look us in the eye and tells us you don't see the same things
is our thinking so strange
tell us we're the only ones in the world that wanna see change

[EQ]
and as a kid
I never thought that this was life
now I sit trying to reach some new heights
no bills no worries picture us
now that the games over we live it up
and as a kid
I never thought that this was life
now I sit trying to reach some new heights
no bills no worries picture us
now that the games over we live it up
Track Name: Lied to Me
oh its like that?

yea I fucked around but didn't you expect it?
the pain on my face I wear it like a necklace!
what has it been months since you and I connected?!?!
I look in the mirror and I feel disrespected
bailed on me one night and left me high and dry
she had the same problem with a dude and sympathized
loved the way I rocked the mic with passion in my eyes
she says "come over have a drink and we could improvise"
of fine we did it all night
that rhythm felt good and that pocket felt tight
"with me in your life you'll never loose a fight"
"just come over here silly boy hit the lights and let me bless the mic"
yea I found a hottie with a real nice body
a beautiful face and an ass that made me feel godly shit
when I was doing my thing
who would've thought she would've brought shit that you couldn't bring
who would've thought she would've coped shit that you couldn't sling
who would've thought she would've thought shit that you wouldn't think
hold on before you judge my song
you know the truth mother fucker you should sing along!

Cause you lied to me lied to me
told me you would ride with me
lied to me lied to me
put that on your life for me
so I'mma lie to you
but trust me I can while still telling the truth
Cause you lied to me lied to me
told me you would ride with me
lied to me lied to me
took the best side of me
so I'mma lie to you
but trust me I can while still telling the truth

Hitting the floor loving it more
rugged and raw
dropping the jaw when I pour passion
I remember being at your front door asking
"we started out so hot tell me what happend?!?"
tell me what you want
won't you tell me what you need
won't you tell me what I gotta do for you to want me
god dammit here we are fucking it up
gave you my word and my trust wasn't that shit enough
but nah you said you loved me
that was under your breathe
I gave you the best part of me there ain't none of it left
and I promised you I'd follow you until those last steps
but we detoured that road and we ain't make it there yet
oh fine
I understand some shits a safe bet
I'mma take mine
matter fact I'm gonna jet
oh shit
I was a waste of time?
well fine bitch after this I won't waste my breath

Cause you lied to me lied to me
told me you would ride with me
lied to me lied to me
put that on your life for me
so I'mma lie to you
but trust me I can while still telling the truth
Cause you lied to me lied to me
told me you would ride with me
lied to me lied to me
took the best side of me
so I'mma lie to you
but trust me I can while still telling the truth
Track Name: Sentido ft. Pawz One & Kapital J
[Pawz One]
pawz one speaks from the heart
this something that the streets started
aint for the meek
thats why the weak hearted
is still gettin fucked in the game
keep your cheeks parted
retarded, thinking a artist is making cash still
chips aint stackin your yappin on how you blast steal
rappin aint payin your rent homie, and thats real
the killing aint true and all the shootings a lie
came through to fuck your mood up and ruin your high
i know them dudes that really shoot and what they do to get by
your getting robbed by some dude whos in a suit and a tie
but not I, i aint taking any phonies along

so while your out there ating and talking and ripping stickers off

[Kapital J]
Relax your mind girl inhale the smoke

[Anthm]
I spit my shit just to let it be known
don't need your keys or your rings
or your seat at the throne
Track Name: Vice Grip
She can't wait put her hands on my waist
my palm on her throat my finger tips on her face
she likes the way we dip and loves the way I taste
I ask about her boyfriend she said
"that dude loves to hate"
that don't bother me none when I'm killing the cat
that's why I keep it real in the sack
bend her over lick her clit and I give it a smack
now she scratching on my skin like she peeling it back
oh mida ma bucks like a bronco
I'm puffing on the ganja while she sucking on my cock slow
my little freak tale nothings impossible
she asking me to rap while I bust on her tonsils
my little sex box games like a console
made her cum four times and she still want more
I tell her nah you should do it yourself she says
"papi ben aqui cause I'm needing your help"

How you gonna move when you ridding that nice dick
god says no but the devil knows you like it
try to fight it or you invite it but either way
how you gonna move in that vice grip
What you gonna do when you ridding that nice dick
god says no but the devil knows you like it
try to fight it or you invite it but either way
how you gonna move in that vice grip

One line
two pills
three rolled blunts
she wanna have a good time so that ain't enough
four beers five shots
I feel it in my gut
but she's a party girl so she bout' to take a puff
blowing clouds in the sky and I had to ask her why
she told me it was "freedom" through her blood shot eyes
One day two days three days up
she ain't feel shit
"Am I that fucked up?"
but
One line
two pills
three rolled blunts
we wanna have a good time so that ain't enough
four beers five shots
I feel it in my gut
but we some party people so we bout' to take a puff
blowing clouds in the sky and I didn't know why
I thought it was "freedom" through my blood shot eyes
One day two days three days up

How you gonna move when you hitting that pipe quick
god says no but the devil knows you like it
try to fight it or you invite it but either way
how you gonna move in that vice grip?
What you gonna do when you hitting that pipe quick
god says know but the devil knows you like it
try to fight it or you invite it but either way

Track Name: Thorn in My Side
She said "I want you but not this and not now"
he just sat back and laughed
as his tears fell to the ground
"I'm okay" he claimed "just watch and you'll see..
a few years your mind will rewind have you back at me"
"actually there's somebody else"
her face carried a smirk
but her vocal tone sounded like fear and doubt
"fine I'll just get off this couch and head outside"
15 minutes man she made up her mind
she smoking on a cigarette sitting on the front steps
he's wondering why she stayed so long at this function
production was lacking and so was the acting
when the show ends why does he start relapsing
don't know
and being stoned doesn't bring the answers
so he takes another shot and he puffs away on cancer
clouds of smoke mixed with the smell of hopelessness
he can't stand it here
he doesn't even know who's home it is
hitting the ground was hard
and too violent for his own good
he wants to disappear
puts on his headphones and his hood
blending in with the color by numbers painting
tried to be the tower of strength
but his foundation is waining
tired of explaining
cause his patience gets shorter as life does
he walks around head in the cloud a slight buzz
from the dubs and 8tracks he puffs on a blunt
and he remembers when he used to save that
now it just goes fast
He wants to be sober but it's hard to hold back
kodak memories of laughter
quick time clips of smiles
tear drops streaming cause the gleam in her eyes
is just another picture on file
no GPS can ever point to where home is
only cause she rest her pretty head in someone else's warm bed
so he sits flipping through the old pics
insisting that his heart is dead the fact that he's breathing
must be a magic trick
stand sit then kneel like the catholic church
he didn't pray when it was good
he won't call when it hurts
but the pressure in his chest has the veins in his neck about to burst
and he wanted to move on first
but the thirst for the water proves he has something else to learn
he mistook dreams for life with no where else to turn
so he takes the batteries out of the fire alarm just to sleep while the house burns

you're a
thorn in my side the stars in my night
the absence of my heart beat
the twinkle in my eye
the reason to rise a reason to climb
the reason why I built these walls so high
you're a
thorn in my side the stars in my night
the absence of my heart beat
the twinkle in my eye
the reason to rise a reason to climb
the reason why I built these walls so high

still here no pen using the quill that's in my mind
can't put the ink to the page I'd lose it if I tried
some days I try to find a safe place to hide
and other times I'm laying on my back looking at the sky
where are you?
is someone loving you tonight?
my star you are the sunshine of my life
my head hurts and my chest gets tight
stomach flip heart thinking shit something just ain't right

you're a
thorn in my side the stars in my night
the absence of my heart beat
the twinkle in my eye
the reason to rise a reason to climb
the reason why I built these walls so high
you're a
thorn in my side the stars in my night
the absence of my heart beat
the twinkle in my eye
the reason to rise a reason to climb
the reason why I built these walls so high
Track Name: Higher Point of View ft. Oshun & Maka
I mean there's never enough money, there's never enough time
I don't really think I can do this by myself
I mean I live in real life
you gotta pursue life
you can't chase dreams right? what am I supposed to do?

Chase your dreams and grip them tight,
in the midst of the night reach for the light,
feed into your appetite for rhymes and mics,
you're dynamite!
Blowing up the satellites,
evicting all the parasites,
aim your arrow line of sight
it's time to live a brighter life.
No divide, no black or white
no stress or fear, no guilt or strife.
Freedom is our human right,
release your mind and be the light.
Choose the road less traveled by,
elevate, it's time to rise,
open ears, wide open eyes,
I'm speaking clear,
You're hearing, right?

Live your dream, you are free,
no more lies,
you are the lion breaking out of the cage.
Victory is in your hand,
make a fist and take your stand,
live for today because the moment is all we have.

what can I do?
take a higher point of view
what should I do?
take a higher point of view
what must I do?
take a higher point of view
you've got the keys to your dreams please believe me when I tell you
what can I do?
take a higher point of view
what should I do?
take a higher point of view
what must I do?
take a higher point of view
you've got the keys to your dreams please believe me when I tell you

Isn't it ironic sitting round' smoking chronic
thinking I'm finding myself sipping on this gin and tonic
but all these in betweens keep us far from our dreams
when walking in and out of shadows tings ain't really what dem' seem
most circles we revolve dissolve and don't evolve
so nothing in my world gets solved at all
til' we fall short of our goals and aspirations
but have no fear it's not a final destination
you're more than enough
but only you can make it true
you're as limitless as the god that created you
when I am confused and I know not what to do
I turn my eyes to the sky and take a higher point of view

what can I do?
take a higher point of view
what should I do?
take a higher point of view
what must I do?
take a higher point of view
you've got the keys to your dreams please believe me when I tell youwhat can I do?
take a higher point of view
what should I do?
take a higher point of view
what must I do?
take a higher point of view
you've got the keys to your dreams please believe me when I tell you

open up my eyes seeming like the same day
but no reason for ever seeing it the same way
let go of my doubts destructive little nay says
take a leap of faith in myself and oh how things change
it's true some things don't really work the way you plan it
but destiny is taken rarely is it ever just granted
in the past I would ask now I demand it
had to live life first before I could start to understand it
choosing to grow beyond my minds confines
open to the world and let my little light shine bright
I owe it to myself to find a place where I'm right
I owe it to myself to find my place divine right
Track Name: Go Where You Wanna Go
It'll feel real good
You should
Come on let's go
Just gotta love yourself
you know? just gotta be who you're supposed to be
gotta be who you're supposed to be
let's go

Rain she never runs from
knows one day she's gonna see the sun
some things change but believes her mom said
"you ain't dead til' the breathings done" so yes
movements a must
loves herself and begins to trust
dreams have wings and she's on the cusp
she's gonna do what she wanna do and that's what's up
it's her own life
sometimes it's hard but it's still alright
she squeeze the night until it bleeds and it bursts sunlight
she sees those heights
and knows the roads gonna take some fight
she sets her sights
she spreads her wings it's time to take flight
let's go

Go where you wanna go (go go go gogo)
and do what you wanna do (do do do dodo)
Go where you wanna go (go go go gogo)
and do what you wanna do (do do do dodo)

We all may fall I pray you never stay down
This world is ours we should be aiming at the clouds
yea we all may fall I pray you never stay down
This world is ours we should be aiming at the clouds

Been a long year but your boy still strong
made a lot of rights but it still felt wrong
try not to look back on the path that I'm on
though the pain in the rap is a map for the songs
so yea
my dreams have worth
some things ain't what they seem at first
if you believe then you can be
but it's life not sprite that'll quench your thirst
time and light that'll heal the hurt
grab this mic and I make it work
hopes and dreams can change the earth
we gotta love ourselves we gotta get there first
so lets go

Go where you wanna go (go go go gogo)
and do what you wanna do (do do do dodo)
Go where you wanna go (go go go gogo)
and do what you wanna do (do do do dodo)

We all may fall I pray you never stay down
Yup this world is ours we should be aiming at the clouds
cause we all may fall I pray you never stay down
This world is ours we should be aiming at the clouds
yea we all my fall
I pray you never stay down
I said we all may fall
I pray you never stay
down
Track Name: I Know
I love you
Dear mama I'm sorry for the pain that I cause
Wish I could bend down pull the plug and drain it all
I know
I know

Let me start by saying that you never were a bad mama
we just went through all that god damn dad drama
life lit a match and poured a gas can on us
now wear the scares on our heart like a badge of honor
you're the part of my drive that strives to push me farther
the warmth of my soul came from you not my father
but at times we walk away and let it go like why bother
hurting on both ends why do we make this life harder?
you're the reason my corazon is beating
the reason I look in the mirror keep on believing
and I'm sorry I don't make time to see you on the weekends
and I know you can't swim yet I move into the deep end
I'm sorry for the push aways and closing you outs
I'm sorry for the words we say in the form of shouts
I'm sorry for the things that I've done but I know now
the type of man that I am
but I love you no doubt

Dear mama I'm sorry for the pain that I've caused
wish I could bend down pull the plug and drain it all
I know it shows up when we fight
and I know how it hurts you inside
Dear mama I'm sorry for the pain that I've caused
wish I could bend down pull the plug and drain it all
I know it shows up when we fight
and I know how it hurts you inside

A lots been said and done damn we can't take it back
a lot of paths that we walked we can't change the past
I grew up in a house of pain yes we faced the facts
but I remained a beautiful soul and you helped shape that
I'm irresponsible but trying to change
I intend to do good but seem falter in my ways
I know the path that I walk sometimes it doesn't pay
that's no reflection of you and all the things you gave
dear mama I'm sorry for our painfullest fights
how I speak to my siblings with disregard and spite
the choices that I made even tho they wasn't right
and all the times you were worried I didn't come home at night
dear mama I'm sorry for the things that I've done
what can I say I'm a man and merely my father's son
I'mma take this path in life as far as it'll let me run
I'll let you know now you're my image of love

Dear mama I'm sorry for the pain that I've caused
wish I could bend down pull the plug and drain it all
I know it shows up when we fight
and I know how it hurts you inside
Dear mama I'm sorry for the pain that I've caused

Track Name: Welcome to the Sunshine
Good Morning
I'm stretching my arms yawning
finding that there's so many things thats more important
looking at my 99 problems and start sorting
see I gotta stop flirting with like and start courting
I stay committed to this life
yes I'm with it when the night starts it's hitting
and the loneliness is kicking
I sit back and look upon my mission
and find I will never make it there if I stay in this position
I'm meant to shine amongst the stars
that ain't me being big headed ma' I know who I are
I need your motivation cause I gotta go far
and if we can't stay here then it's best to move on
I'm just a lion in the clouds
and a hungry voice is one that never spoke loud
we can be everything I'm speaking of now
and we can take this negative to a positive like wow

but oh
check out the sunshine ain't it beautiful?
and when your heart beats like that it's a musical
but don't let the bad things get you down like usual
and hey "welcome to the sunshine" this ain't new to you
but yea
check out the sunshine ain't it beautiful?
and when your heart beats like that it's a musical
but don't let the bad things get you down like usual
and hey "welcome to the sunshine"

yes of course it's so beautiful you can see
and we would be a force if only you would just believe it
I put it through this course cause I can see the real reason
and I listen to my heart while I'm just following my dreams in
truth be told you should be doing the same
let this lyrical Van Gogh show you love isn't a game
the warmth and hope with every image that I paint
like you be sombrero I'll be your pancho when it rains
shit I'll be your sancho and your main
you can be starry night beautiful brown eyed sweet thing
that's music to the art
fuel for the heart
it must be the passion that's the spark
so yes of course I need you in my
like yes of course I put it through this fight
like yes of course we do it in the night
but understand in the sun is where it really feels right

but oh
check out the sunshine ain't it beautiful?
and when your heart beats like that it's a musical
but don't let the bad things get you down like usual
and hey "welcome to the sunshine" this ain't new to you
but yea
check out the sunshine ain't it beautiful?
and when your heart beats like that it's a musical
but don't let the bad things get you down like usual
and hey "welcome to the sunshine"
Track Name: New Day
I'm loving this life
sleep with my pen and put a bun in my mic
nine months give birth to a light
rehearse and give my soul to the night
make people smile now adays so I know that it's right
gather my composure
hug my mama tight around her shoulder
tell her I'm no soldier but I'mma fight until this strife is over
might get colder
but that's what the sun is for
you can't put a price on your time it's worth much more
no road is straight that takes you where you need to go
and life holds things untold
you don't need to know
just take it for what it's worth I suppose
use my soul to plant the seed and now I pray that it grows
wear my heart on my sleeve so easily seen
make every song cry
make every line breathe
mi corazons need the hope
so while they spit the poison
I concoct the next antidote and here it goes...

and that new days coming soon
the new days coming soon it will find you
and that new days coming soon
you're still breathing you're alive I remind you
and that new days coming soon
the new days coming soon it will find you
and that new days coming soon
you're not dead you're alive I remind you

dying is certain truly living is not
it's your choice
you'll make it up over time or right on the spot
the difference between soaring high or sinking like rocks
sometimes these fleeting moments all we've got
either way you've gotta work with what we're giving
when we're grief stricken do we want salvation or simply easy living?
I know the roles I've been in
I keep my light bending
I hope you ride the waves I am sending cause I'm
scribbling freedom on pages
trying to reach a common ground
I seek it through the sound
hand extended out, I will not let you drown
feel lost? now you are found
positive vibes yea we need that around
it helps the soul rejuvenate
I put my heart in it so I hope you relate
lets plan our escape before our parts finished
and they chase our stars away
your spirit is free they can't take what you never gave

and that new days coming soon
the new days coming soon it will find you
and that new days coming soon
you're still breathing you're alive I remind you
and that new days coming soon
the new days coming soon it will find you
and that new days coming soon
you're not dead you're alive I remind you

the new days coming soon it will find you
you're not alone in this world I remind you
the new days coming soon it will find you
you're not alone in this world I remind you
Track Name: I AM ANTHM [outro]
One for the money yup
two for the soul
three to get ready and four to let you go

You want that passion then throw your fucking hands up!
What? I am Anthm
Who? I am Anthm
You want a leader then throw your fucking hands up!
What? I am Anthm
Who? I am Anthm
You want that music then throw your fucking hands up!
What? I am Anthm
Who? I am Anthm
uh you want a leader what you want that passion what
you want it you want it you want it

here to cure hip hop atrocities
music turned mockery spit hotter than hell
no devil stopping me
to strong for yall need to start chop blocking me
hit your leader in the mouth like "Bitch who on top of me?"
no one shogun I'm moving like a samurai
roll one smoke some thinking god damn am I
gonna have to body them one at a time
or is it enough to just keep the punks inline
oh fine
you don't have to like my rhymes
nah really my hommie you can pay me no mind
blueprints a full clip plus a better design
you see my downfall please show me the signs
cause they not there
not fair
wack mc's can't even conceivably dream how I got here
telling me that I can't like they think I care
my waters run deep a fleet'll sink out here
light speed don't blink you can't think out there
plastic saran rappers just shrink out here
raw uncut hip hop fends out there what?
an Anthem is what it needs and an Anthm is right here
so for those that sell death
for those that sell hate
for those that take that women image pillage and rape
Anthm I'm the sun this is dawns early break
I open them up
in hopes that it change
damn
