Track Name: Optimystic
Some fly high off that marijuana stench
Some dig deeper than the Mariana trench
Some find god in the televisionsnow
We all keep it in but its best to let it go
and BREATHE, your alive
Equalize both horizons of your mind
You’re here, your alive
Equalize both horizons of your mind

Value wisdom over knowledge
Books over looks, love over power
I’m a million years of ancient soul
Singing songs of sacred poems
and lessons shared through fables told, listen..
I knew a young prodigy, creatively inventive
Rediscovered free-energy fully independent of the grid
Just a kid who would change the world forever
Investor’s offered millions for his brilliant endeavors
Enchanted by the government, lured into their possession
Seized by the military, used as a weapon
he tried to fight against it but he signed the dotted line
Now he’s on the run, hiding trying not to lose his mind..

The system's got him stressin,
forgettin all his dreams, losin his attention
focus on redemption, instead of pointless pretensions
move in all directions, shift between dimensions

History is written by the victors
Truth isn’t proof if it’s hidden in a picture
Everyone’s a winner when nobody’s competing
Free to Live your life, write something worth reading
History is written by the victors
Truth isn’t Proof if it’s hidden in a picture
Everyone’s a winner when nobody’s competing
Free to Live your life, Write a LiFE worth Leading.

A greedy suit in a high position of power
ruining lives and making millions by the hour
let the Corporation control his only soul
selfish pig feeding on that space cadet glow.
Watched his colleague make headlining news
who confessed to the corruption their company abused
A whistle blower on the run, heading towards the sun
overwhelmed with the dread he fearfully grabbed his gun
Thought about the poor families he destroyed
All the children they either killed or employed
All the television drugs and alcohol to numb the guilt
His soul broke free from the pressure that he built
He ran to the top floor, heart pounding in his chest
Wide awake knowing now he could never rest
Prayed for forgiveness screaming up at the sky
looking down upon the city believing he can fly

Some fly high off that marijuana stench
Some dig deeper than the Mariana trench
Some find god in the televisionsnow
We all keep it in but its best to let it go
AND BREATHE, your alive
Equalize both horizons of your mind
You’re here, your alive
Equalize both horizons of your mind
Track Name: Hollow Earth ft. Jessica Johnson
catch you later calculator I am a man of nature,
star navigator along the path of flavor,
satchel full of paper, analog tapes, no pager
cloak of alligator skin, master negotiator
born out of a qwazaar, you were born in an incubator,
haters of my nature fall incinerator
you can always call me your friendly, wise neighbor
wand made of holly, ancient light sabor
wrapped in annunaki heart string,
master of all "ologys" calling me your holy Star King
staff made of coral reef from Atlantis
I energize by the moon and dragon meat sandwhiches
disguised as the homeless vagabond you pass by
in the back alleys observing you w/ my black eyes
the only way you'll find me is to follow maggots
vanish deep beneath the core into the hollow planet

time does not exist
guiding us since our birth
into a hollow earth

Don't call me your lil bro, ill punch your nose
and stuff your throat w/ an open artichoke,
sacrificing rappers at a Quest Haven gathering
it wreaked of faygo and the laughter was maddening
mad-hatter cavalry storm into my fort
I burn sage for protection and rock jewels of quartz.
I ring the sirens, this is not a fire drill
bring the violence and mayhem, Silent Hill
bring the science w/ a mystic minded vibrant skill
while your stuck in black n white kinda miming still
your systems full of parasites feenin for attention
eatin all your terabytes, and cheatin on your lessons
did I mention? if you cant break the connection
your gettin detention w/ the kids in the 5th dimension
pass the crystal bong of space herbs to Merlin
turnin my trip from observant to disturbin
I was worshiped by Aliester Crowley
to master the craft of wizardry listen slowly
lumos imperio bombarda crucio
patronus of a phantom head of fire, Rufio
puncturing your sphere of influence by the day
bitch smacked Anton Lavey and made him dig his own grave
Track Name: Less Mouth, More Ear (prod. by Go Yama)
I travel space in a cutlass supreme
got the chicken pox in the Philippines
then again when I was 16?
Living in a fever dream that never ends
What is real when most pretend?
Wrote a list of things to do, start a large fire
Next, put out a large fire
Get the front page of national enquirer
Bungee jump, retire.
So many days to acquire/ so many trees to admire
too many grays in the wire/ too many people to inspire me
I'm an advocate for positive energy
Nostalgic remedies, prank call your enemies
Laughter is a habit of the healthy
Capture the magic of the rapture in a selfie?
I failed a personality test
No patience for the dumb on this reality quest
w/out reinforcement you rapidly unwind
build words with everlasting design
w/out balance your empire will crumble
w/out experience you’re a child in a bubble
everyone talks but nobodies listening
everyone talks but whose listening?

too many mouths and not enough ears
disappear for a year, reappear w/a beard
don’t blame it on the cocaine, blame it on the Coltrane
still rocked my uniform when there was no game
riding on spaceship earth on a soul-train
re-calibrate my robo-brain
celebrate this experience called life
don’t sleep, we create all night
shy kid, young, cool, laid back
vivid ideas, let me create that
i'm living in a lucid world
but treat her right or your gonna lose that girl
got bored w/ school so I took a vacation
got bored w/ that so I went back To school,
felt outta place when people where changing
..Some kids can be so cruel
Fashionably ugly, a calculated decorum
RIP, cause of death was boredom
Life is a movie, you’re the director
Behind your eyelids, mind the projector

The wise old owl sat on an oak
The more he saw the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard
Why aren’t we more like the bird?
Track Name: Market Of The Beast ft. Emphasize
I pray you awaken and your smarts will increase
so you can see the truth about the market of the beast
open your ears to these bars as we speak
so you can see the truth about the market of the beast

Generik:
your a target of the beast, so watch what you think
be mindful of your moves when your marchin in the streets
what you choose to reveal on your own social media
is an arsenal of weapons to the global militia
systematically dumbing down, conditioning the children
to forget how to listen and obey the prison
be mindful of where you decide to put your dollar
are you a zombie shopper? or a thoughtful scholar?
addicted to material and simulate the enemy
I know its easy to get lost and lose identity
and yes, history is written by the victors
so keep it alive in the minds of the listeners
survive and thrive, we can free all the prisoners
of the illusion we choose to be ruled by sinister
sociopaths, self-proclaimed gods
alternative living is how we break the facade

I pray you awaken and your smarts will increase
so you can see the truth about the market of the beast
open your ears to these bars as we speak
so you can see the truth about the market of the beast
Track Name: Contact (prod. by DJ Inform)
at first we found nothing but space
there is nothing more abundant than nothing
nothing more silent than the silence of the ether
floating weightless like an upper sea creature
and im releaved to finally get away from it all
i find peace of mind alone without having to fall
back to recluse, a hermit on a mission to find gems
then I got to mars and was greeting by them

"..flying saucers intend to come to earth and.."

beam you up, show us what we're doin wrong,
show us where we belong,
show us how to live,
expose us to the corruption on earth
told us how they were here first
and how we're spiritual beings trapped in a physical realm
imprisoned in our skulls under invisible spells
controlled by the few, a war for your mind
if your gonna fight for truth, now is the time

they told us how the moon is space ship
created by an ancient race who did nothing but great shit
they consider it a sattelite,
watching and revolving round the earth along a path of light
told us of the pyramids on mars
and every other inhabited planet under the stars
and how life is abundant,
throughout the multiverse so why on earth do we do dumb shit?
humankind is still primitive
trapped by religions which plague our infinite
potential, these words are monumental to the folk
and instrumental to your growth
detrimental like a spoke to a wheel spinning on its axis
we can evolve concsciously w/ practice
go and Dora explore it
rediscover the knowledge and absorb it

its what they told me
its what they showed me

politiced w/ the hollow earth wizards.
peacefull people who are at war with the lizards
Track Name: Prisoner, King, Saint, Loser
look ma' so samples
all original compositions written in blood
for witches and bugs who give every individual love
with a cynical lust for risidual trust with fellow man
a bond beyond a simple shake of hand
a bloodline that traces back to the ancient land
timeless folklores that have survived the test of time
if you show me yours I'll show you the best of mine
a prisoner in a labrynth of torture
a hollow-shelled sorcerer w/ elaborate disorders
a king amonst theives, living in luxury
glory power and over abundancy
a saint, sharing his soul w/ the poor
doesn't take much but always gives more
a loser hiding from the past
never leaves the house w/out a mask or a flask
Track Name: Psilo.Silence (prod. by Audible Junkie)
On my way to the door I was stopped by the eyes of a faceless breathing.
I couldn't tell what I was seeing, I only noticed it was being.
I stepped outside and listened to the silence
caught my breath in the icicle air
overwhelmed by the star glow vibrant
realized I wasn't the only person there
I heard a familiar voice, like the path we've taken was by similar choice
a haunting yet comforting sound, whispered through the trees, lifted by the clouds
sinking under the weight of heavy thoughts, palms sweaty
eyes blurred by the blizzard of confetti
like a child lost in the television snow
asleep w/ eyes open, gazing at the glow
let your business go and let your system slow
let the stillness grow and let the wisdom flow
spoke to me like an old song
Ive had hidden in my mind for so long
Ive certainly been here before
constellations on the floor I continue to explore
Ive certainly been here before
constellations on the floor I continue to explore

All I hear is my heartbeat,
an owl in the distance,
the stillness of existence
your pulse radiating star heat,
from nothing comes everything,
let the silence speak
All I hear is my heartbeat,
an owl in the distance,
the stillness of existence
your pulse radiating star heat,
from nothing comes everything,
let the silence speak

All I hear is the scratching of my pencil
the whisper of a gentle clock ticking instrumental
time is precious, precious is time
cherish yours and I wont waste minds
how deep does it get? curiosity insatiable
body is temporary, soul aint replaceable
I close my eyes and all I see is light
I listen to my gut and all I hear is right
these are the feelings you cant deny
you can only move with it. You must comply
dance w/ the winds, enchanted within
no measuring when it pushes out or pulls in
it will lead you where you need to be
mentally, spiritually come be a seed w/ me
cultivate what needs to be done
lets grow together and reach for the sun
