Track Name: Merely A Glimpse
Chorus
The Saints reign in the city of sin
Try and wash away the pain and let his grace fill it in
Street Gospel reacting to my residents
Jesus paid the price through death benefits

It’s the return of the wordsmith hip hop juggernaut
Leave you hanging on (my) every word like a slipknot
Who shot ya I miss the 90’s street songs
Back alley psyfers and dre before detox
Locked and loaded spitting heat from the inner soul
Rap intuition rose degrees melted winter poles
Holding down position in the army of the Lord
True to life (soldier) similes and metaphors
Swore by the sinner’s prayer to follow in his footprints
King of all the land just exalted him a wordsmith
Bound by blood rapping for a purpose
Deep within his verses to barely scratch the surface
I’m fired up this is praise on adrenaline
Rap is lacking heart like Dorothy with her metal man
Keep peddling your soul for them dollar bills
Devils dogs tell me how them collars feel

Chorus
The Saints reign in the city of sin
Try and wash away the pain and let his grace fill it in
Street Gospel reacting to my residents
Jesus paid the price through death benefits


Vocab heavyweight (shadow) boxing in the mirror
Thrilla ain’t manila color coordinates crystal clear
Love thy neighbor flavor flave no public enemies
Got a leg up on most rappers (yeah) like a cenepede
This ain’t a pipe dream it’s a God send
1 in 4 listeners will be ending up at odds end
Play it back rewind the punch line
My food for thought plots got mindsets on lunchtime
God inspired lyrics never used a rhyming dictionary
Pulled me from the fire to (re)create this music missionary
He’s the visionary I’m the instrument
The profound sound of his symphonies are infinite
Figurative imagery vivid in emotion
Line for line design causing bleeding heart corrosion
True devotion living for my witnessing
Purpose filled life eternalized my sentencing

Chorus
The Saints reign in the city of sin
Try and wash away the pain and let his grace fill it in
Street Gospel reacting to my residents
Jesus paid the price through death benefits
Track Name: King Above-feat: Doc Jones
Hands high (Throw em up)
Jesus Christ (He is love)
God on Earth (King Above)
Freedom from (Redeemers Blood)
Freedom from (Redeemers Blood)
God on Earth (King Above)
Jesus Christ (He is love)
Hands high (Throw em up)

Irregular the messenger speaking through the Holy Spirit
I foresee the prophecy trinity philosophy
Phenomenal anomalies revealed for all the non believers
The devil alienates your soul you Sigourney weavers
I’m in the good book study on steroids
Demons in my rear view had me parked on paranoid
Peddle to the metal headed to the local fellowship
Saint city 16’s devil in dismemberment
Lost his membership left it back in Calvary
Shadows of the cross have him hiding out in vanity
Praise to his majesty thrown at the right hand
Money off the pedestal snapped the rubber band man
Grands filled with fifties rap full of dollar bills
The devils lease on souls is paying out in some borrowed deals
Sleeping on tomorrow is waking up in never land
And life without Christ is running marathons in quicksand

Hands high (Throw em up)
Jesus Christ (He is love)
God on Earth (King Above)
Freedom from (Redeemers Blood)
Freedom from (Redeemers Blood)
God on Earth (King Above)
Jesus Christ (He is love)
Hands high (Throw em up)
Track Name: Witness
Child of the Lord on the search for knowledge
Wisdom is more than just what’s learned in College
Living in the city hidden in the sticks
Mission of the Gospel gone bananas where it splits
Preaching to kiddies in the streets and back alleys
Burbs to the country from New York to Cali
To the whole World Christ be the answer
Love from above can decimate the cancer
Devils dancers ringing round your ear drums
Killing off the flesh in reverse seeing red rum
Reaching bedlam on the road to Damascus
Self imposed depression seeing the world through foggy beer glasses
Ain’t it time to rewrite your history
Today’s tomorrow is the past without misery
See it vividly learn to live spiritually
A life filled with purpose is led by God’s imagery


Strike through the melody battered on the beat
Rising from the ashes then scattered in the streets
I’m having fun using my talents
Word play displays all praise to Gods balance
Fulcrum for living when you’re leveraged to the hill
Push and pull persistent mind spinning like a drill
A penny for your thoughts when money is the missioning
A Crash course collision for cut throat businessmen
Imprisoned in their need for greed
Slit wrist ventriwiquist bleeding green
Naw mean like dogs who haven’t eaten
And Christ returns to my field of dreams season
Heavy breathing in this mic booth confessional
Intercessional pen to page professional
3 dimensional prayer to the trinity
One that holds weight from the I4C ministry

Catch fever from the devilish deceiver
You fetch dollars like a golden retrievers
Rappers make it rain I ain’t talking cenos
Their watered down flows are overpriced like Pellegrino’s
Bottled up and slapped with a label
Some HD screens buts sounds like faulty cables
I’m back to the roots like New York hip hop
Artistic imprints being chiseled on the city block
Rocking Vegas where sin is the regular
But where sin abounds grace is the leading competitor
Shredding the head of the malevolent stronghold(s)
Never again to embellish the wrong road(s)
Come on yall lets make a change
We saint city soldiers are home on the range
Standing on the front lines speaking to people
There’s a battle in the streets from the war of good and evil
Track Name: Jesus Rose
Chorus:
Fear not it’s already written
Grace abounds for all God’s children
Stop concealing start revealing
True belief is more than just a feeling

Verse 1:
Jesus rose and 3000 baptized
The church grows with our father in the afterlife
Persecuted apostles traveling the globe
Preaching Jesus’ teachings so the world is exposed
Roman officials imposing genocide
Christians killed in abundance exterminate with homicide
Murderous murmurs spread throughout the land
All living believers will be dead (right) where they stand
Can’t stop won’t stop apostle( have) to keep it moving
The word flows through the hearts of many souls
Paul was told to reach out to the gentiles
To every living soul not just the Jewish percentile
Were all equals in the eyes of the Lord
We died to our sins but through Christ were reborn
Reformed molded in his image
Every moment breathing is a gift not a privilege

Chorus:
Fear not its already written
Grace abounds for all God’s children
Stop concealing start revealing
True belief is more than just a feeling

Verse 2:
Epic the dawn on the day that he returns
A lake of fire arises and hell forever burns
We have to learn how to reach out to the masses
Before the four horsemen turn the world to ashes
Sound the trumpets reveal the 7 seals
Apocalyptic scriptures so the word is fulfilled
The beast from the east rising from sea
The rider on the white horse has come to set you free
tree of life growing fruit for the harvest
To save the chosen from the 7 plagues of carnage
Fear the one who brings the second death
Not of the flesh but the spirit of malevolence
Different levels of punishment in judgment
No presence of God for the fiery republic
Turn from torment towards the New Jerusalem
Heaven meets earth Christ reunited with the church


Chorus:
Fear not its already written
Grace abounds for all God’s children
Stop concealing start revealing
True belief is more than just a feeling
Track Name: Daddies Dreams
General son born into his lifestyle
Family bleeds army green new age dream child
Bred for war by a decorated soldier
Military prepatory fathers on his shoulders
Break him down to rebuild a strong hold
But his spirits disappeared on the long road
Feelings of hate entered for the first time
Daily beating were rehearsed on the front lines
Basic training by a battle hardened war vet
His greatest fear is shedding tears over blood and sweat
Wants respect but he can’t quite communicate
Son stopped listening went awol and left the states
Shattered dreams for a father in the deep end
Drowning in pride propaganda and his regrets
Never told his son how much he loved him
Not once did he ever come and hug him

Daddies dreams aren’t always what they seem
A fathers joy can turn to loud screams
Daddy said win by any means
But his rock a by baby is quitting from the team

Front row father he needs his face time
Little league game and he’s yelling down the base line
Run It out a he’s a dug out deviate
Downsizing sonny cause he’s under achieving it
What is IT it’s the goals that he never reached
Win by any means never fail what he preached
Projected failures weathered by his young son
Dream boats sinking deep into a chasm
He can’t fathom playing another game
But he’s terrified of bringing shame to his father’s name
Tears of pain when he sees himself in the mirror
Wants to end his life not play another year
Opens up the cabinet grabs a full prescription bottle
Blacks out and is taken to the hospital
Daddies crying begging for another chance
The note that he wrote said sorry bout his batting stance

Daddies dreams aren’t always what they seem
A fathers joy can turn to loud screams
Daddy said win by any means
But his rock a by baby is quitting from the team

Wake up daddies it’s all about relationship
A son needs a father not a broken dream membership
Wrap your around him and hold tight
Cause you never know you might not get another night
Only a father can teach his son to be a man
Stop breaking family ties weave em into thicker strands
Grab his hand and lead him through the darkness
And if baby boy falls be his harness
Pick him up and let him know it will be okay
If at first you don’t succeed there will be another day
Pay attention to the things that they say
So your innocent child doesn’t turn into a runaway
Absent fathers are still living with their family
But their focus is gone there avoiding reality
Reclaim responsibility be an example
Leader of the house hold has hollow hearts to handle


Daddies dreams aren’t always what they seem
A fathers joy can turn to loud screams
Daddy said win by any means
But his rock a by baby is quitting from the team
Track Name: Without A Care
Without a care I’m shining through the Christ light
Masters apprentice riding hits like excite bike
Strike through the melody like sharks in a feeding frenzy
Blood in the water finally finish time to free the many
I like to flow frequent for delinquents
Misery sequence like Steven King achievements
Start believing through him you can overcome
Christ crushed the serpent by(from) the healing of his wisdom
Where’s the mix up devil claiming victory
Not in this lifetime of seeking God vigently
On the search I ain’t talking bobby fisher
Fisherman of men for revival of the sinister
Pulled from the morgue dead on a cold slab
from the coke lab walking with a toe tag
Removed addiction daily dose conditions
The devil hides his lies in prescriptions
I’m on a mission to reach out to the hopeless
The hope in your dope is a bunch of hocus pocus
Your losing focus come back to reality
Only God’s love can refill your pain cavities
Turn tragedy into an opportunity
No adversity no healing in community
Speaking fluently from wounds of infliction
Only God’s grace closes roads to Perdition

No problems no potential
Life(’s ) struggles are the most influential
Faith embraces certain uncertainties
To face adversity is spiritual maturity


Battling cats is a babbling act
I keep rapping on tracks for producing the facts
Sign sealed delivery stamped with God’s imagery
My ministry has an apocalyptic symmetry
Parables of terrible hertz in my make up
Land of the fallen came calling for a wake up
Two friends down but forever in my memory
Synergy for life Dead Sea scroll remedies
Friends and enemies seen on the same plane
I keep praying for the lost in the Lord’s name
He was a self-made slave and all powerful
God of all subjected to a death for the dishonorable
Hung on a cross humiliated publicly
Paid for our sins like he was nailed to money tree
Given free grace is a gift of love
Agape sacrifices from the king above

No problems no potential
Life’s struggles are the most influential
Faith embraces certain uncertainties
To face adversity is spiritual maturity
Track Name: Death by Meth
Its Daddies little girl only 17
Straight A student reputable beauty queen
Seen as a clean cut popular girl
Hiding real pain from the rest of the world
Broken home living with a secret
Father missing no visits on the weekend
Doesn’t need em left when she was young
Chasing a glass dream strung out on the run
Ice phone trapped by his addiction
Hasn’t seen his daughter since they sent him off to prison
15 years staring at a jail cell
Caged up for the killing of a little girl
Mother daughter walking home from school
Shot em both for 20 dollars and some jewels
Tweaking fool being ruled by the devil drug
Chasing death by meth on some necro love

Chorus:
Flesh of his flesh blood of his blood
Death by meth overcome by love
One from above one from within
One on a cross to save us from sin


Let it burn let it burn till you finally learn
Surrender enters then the tide begins to turn
Screaming help in middle of the cold night
Crying on his knees to a God he don’t know like
If you’re out there send me a sign
Save me from myself and this rotten life of mine
Silence in his mind listening for help
Doesn’t hear an answer places God back on the shelf
He decides to do it on his own
Do it all alone on the road to back home
Failed in his cell a personal hell
Till a guard walked up with a story to tell
Said addiction made him suicidal
Before he found Christ in the scriptures of the Bible
Handed him the good book marked in the Gospels
Said to read the writings of apostles

Chorus:
Flesh of his flesh blood of his blood
Death by meth overcome by love
One from above one from within
One on a cross to save us from sin

Verse 3:
Daddies been reading for 6 years straight
For every chapter wrote a letter to the state
Prayed to the father for delivery from misery
God answered gave him a Spirit of divinity
Hope building finally called his little girl
Said he’d sow all the sea just to find his little pearl
But she ain’t little she’s already 23
In the final weeks of her bachelor’s degree
Let me be let me be is what she’s telling dad
But he ain’t hearing it doesn’t make him mad
It only makes him focus (harder)on his hearing
Parole board meeting decides his release
Back to the streets free walking new man
Decides to show up at his daughters graduation
Fear in his stomach but Christ in his heart
Overcomes anxiety and makes it by the start
Doesn’t recognize her but see her when her names called
Walks over and hugs his little angel

Chorus
Flesh of his flesh blood of his blood
Death by meth overcome by love
One from above one from within
One on a cross to save us from sin
