INTROSPECTION


[Intro]
Damez / Let's go

[Verse 1]
Tryna love myself in world that hates me / I'm just tryna find some freedom in this world that awaits me / Yo / It's the young Damez, know its been a long time / My life been kinda fucked up and lit at the same time / But all this shit sound the same / Just seconds into the track I'm like "nah, send it back" / It's like the game caught a flat / And I'm the fucking spare that you cautiously rode on / I'm hotter than that time yo dumbass left the stove on / I'm on a fucking roll, I still got pain in my soul / I'm bout to turn it up a notch, I think my watch got snowed on / I'm at the Coliseum blowing kush like it's legal / While this 808 pierce through your vein like a needle / I was sad at first but now I'm just lethal / Kill Bill, I'm the assassin and this is my sequel / My oldest brother free they finally let em out the pin / He back to doing things he said he'd never do again / His wife was messing 'round while he was locked with chains out / He called me strapped talking bout blowing her brains out / I mean how you gone explain it to my niece and nephew? / How you gone even look at em, I mean if they let you? / When them lights go out them dark thoughts can get you / Sometimes you need to find yourself when them drugs can't help you / The shit get real when them drugs can't help you (for real) / And when you're trying to find yourself chasing love won't let you

[Verse 2]
Yo, these haters make my head hurt / Man I think I need some Tylenol / Racist, homophobic, you should probably turn my album off / Intricate just like a sculpture, I'm a fucking vulture / I'm dressed in all black infatuated with my culture / Nigga I'm the fucking illest and I'm 'bout to prove it / Sanity done came up missing I guess life done removed it / Got this phoenix in my body I just hope I don't lose it / Got a Benz in the driveway so I might as well cruise it / This is the introspection

Like, how do I know what's... what's right and what's wrong?

[Bridge 1]
These niggas creeping like rapists / They hate me but they still gone play this / Young Damier still on yo playlist / All black on me but I ain't racist, unh

[Verse 3]

I'm infinitely great / The visions I create are sure to keep yo ass awake when it get dark and it get late / I'm moving like a freight / I'm dropping off the weight / I'm clearing up my fucking plate / 'Cause I got greatness in my fate / That's why I'm tattin' up my arm / I'm feinin' for expression I got so much built up it's like I'm reeking of depression / I'm counting up my blessings / Got trees in my possession / Smoking weed is my profession, give a fuck 'bout yo impression /I'm a real nigga, unh / I roll with trill niggas, unh

Money isn't everything but um... hmph / But you better get you some

[Verse 4]
I'm intricate just like a sculpture, I'm a fucking vulture / I'm dressed in all black infatuated with my culture / Man they hate us 'cause our joy is an act of resistance / I always been the shit and I ain't need no assistance / I'm just a real nigga / I'm still with trill niggas, nigga

(Oooooooooooh)

[Bridge 2]
These niggas don't know art, dog / They too busy worried 'bout the charts, dog / I'm 'bout the fuck shit so don't start, dog / Think twice, I'm precise like a dart, dog

Unh, I'm still searching for a clue / My calls still trying to get through / I got eye candy all in my view / But I can't help but think about you / And all of those nights that we used to get high / Talk about life as we look up at the sky / I know, I know I'm a flashy kinda guy / But I got a heart that cash can't buy / And I, I know that you wanna know why / Why I'm falling all of a sudden / When I got hoes all by the dozen / That'll pull up at the push of a button / But they don't mean nothing / And that's real though / I'm trying to see how you feel though / I'm trying to find if you down to ride / If you'd get behind my wheel though / But what if I'm wrong, and I'm not the one for you? / What if I'm in love with everything that you do? (What if?) / But time is a wastin', so I gotta shoot my shot / And I, I'ma give you all that I got / And this Hennessy got me all hot / But you in a different city and you in a different state / We can make moves, I can leave you feeling great / Always on time even when it's getting late / I'm falling so hard that I can't think straight, damn

NIGHTMARES


[Intro: Quin Price]
Nightmares / Nightmares like a motherfucker Why, Lord?

[Verse 1: Quin Price]
I seen it with my own eyes (own eyes) / While his mama cried, that was her only son / And she called to God (she called to God) / Why'd you take him from me? / Why'd you take him from me? I ain't surprised / Another black man killed by a black man with another gun but / I guess sums up every homicide / Every drive-by, every bullet fired, everybody dies / I don't know if you'll realize when you symbolize whether you GD or blood or cuz / But because, they don't give a fuck 'bout me / They don't give a fuck 'bout you / They don't give a fuck 'bout love / They don't give a fuck 'bout we / They don't give a fuck 'bout us / They don't give a fuck 'bout none of that shit / Just to run in yo shit and they'll rewind and do it again / Because niggas don't have no conscious and / I promise tomorrow ain't promised and / You don't really want no problems when / He riding downtown with his patnas and / A chopper on the backseat, got damn / Make me think why all they mind boxed in / Make me wanna think 'bout Martin / And mark my words like Mountain Luther King had a dream I'll move mountains / And I pray to God that my people don't try to take my life / But if you want all my shine I promise I'll give you the light / I'll give you the light

[Chorus]
Tell me why it hurts so bad / I'm trying to save myself from me / Tomorrow it could be my last / It's keeping me up in my sleep / Tell me why it hurts so bad (so bad) / I'm trying to save myself from me (from me) / Tomorrow it could be my last (my last) / It's keeping me up in my sleep

[Verse 2: Damez (Quin Price)]
I heard it with my own ears / Your brother got shot and my whole world stopped / It was the only fear / That my mama had when she was so glad / Just to send her son off to college / A black man trying to seek knowledge / A black man trying to make a profit / A black man trying to be something other than / Just another nigga standing on the block / Hustling with his homies and they working 'round the clock / Pantry getting empty and the trap getting hot / Hit you for yo last just so they can restock / Murk you with the Glock, murder for a rock / Look you in yo eyes right before he cock / Back the 17, all this for a cop / Niggas go to school and they still get shot, fuck it / (I guess you're a product of your environment) / (I guess shit round here violent) / I guess when you hear that chopper singing / Yo mama screaming, play the violin / But they just want us to be silent / Being black is just too vibrant / (Black on black crime put us back nine-) / (Years of full of sweat and blood and tears) / (So can you please just remind me?)

[Chorus] (x2)
Tell me why it hurts so bad / I'm trying to save myself from me / Tomorrow it could be my last / It's keeping me up in my sleep / Tell me why it hurts so bad (so bad) / I'm trying to save myself from me (from me) / Tomorrow it could be my last (my last) / It's keeping me up in my sleep

[Outro]
Rest in peace to Ryan and all the other fallen soldiers out there / We love you and we miss you / Fly high, Nick

Man, why you always on the move now? / I mean, what you really trying to prove now? / What, you telling me you 'bout to move now? / You gone drop everything including school now? / Yeah, that's what they asked me / But I don't never let shit pass me / So I just go where the chrome is / 'Cause I don’t really know what home is / But I know what alone is / Yeah I know what alone is / I know what sitting in the dark with a Glock pressed to yo dome is / The old Damien was a happy nigga / Big-headed ass lil sappy nigga / Shit got real, turned into a snappy nigga / Heart stomped on by a bunch of crappy niggas / Mama moved out when i was sixteen / Never seen shit get so real / And now Damez just another cold dude / Young flesh with the soul of a old dude / I like soul food and I'm so rude / I got problems, but that's old news / They hate you for being black / They hate you for who you love, too

[Bridge]
You just think it's all a facade / While playing God / Worried 'bout the things, the things that don’t concern you (concern you) / And they get kicked right out of they house / Now living without / Drugs and clubs the only things we have to turn to (to turn to)

[Hook]
Pick a struggle / Pick a struggle / Yall don't know / About my struggles / Pick a struggle / Pick a struggle / Yall don't know / About my struggles

[Post-Hook]
Lord if I could just be free / Maybe I can blur the margins / But I just wanna be me / Yeah I don't wanna start no problems / Yeah I don't wanna start no problems / Yall don't know / About my struggles

[Verse 2]
Man, why you always staying prayed up? / I mean, what you really afraid of? / I know failure's a consequence / But what happened to all yo confidence, huh? / Yeah, that's what I ask me / 'Cause lately I been letting shit past me / And I just been avoiding my reflection / Just tryna embrace imperfection / I'm just tryna cross intersections / I'm just tryna cross intersections / Just looking both ways on all of my days / I'm just tryna cross intersections / Just tryna cross intersections / I'm just tryna cross intersections

[Bridge]
And you just think it's all a facade / While playing God / Worried 'bout the things, the things that don’t concern you / (They don't mind they business, they don't mind they business) / Concern you (They don't mind they business) / Like everyday I'm catching hell, for being myself / I'm lonely, left or right I don't know where to turn to / (They don't mind they business, they don't mind they business) /To turn to

[Hook] (x2)
Pick a struggle (pick a struggle) Pick a struggle (pick a struggle) / Yall don't know (yall don't know) / About my struggles (about my struggles) / Pick a struggle (pick a struggle) / Pick a struggle (pick a struggle) / Yall don't know (yall don't know) / About my struggles (about my struggles)

[Post Hook]
Lord if I could just be free / Maybe I can blur the margins / But I just wanna be me / Yeah I don't wanna start no problems / Yeah I don't wanna start no problems / Yall don't know / About my struggles

[Outro]
I'm just tryna cross intersections / I'm just tryna cross intersections / Just looking both ways on all of my days / I'm just tryna cross intersections / Just tryna cross intersections / I'm just tryna cross intersections / Just looking both ways on all of my days / I'm just tryna cross intersections /Just looking both ways on all of my days / I'm just tryna cross intersections

[Monologue: Staceyann Chin]
Apparently, if the tragedy does not immediately impact you, you don't give a fuck... / True love is never affected by color. I curb the flashes of me crashing across the table to knock his blonde skin from Manhattan to Montego Bay to bear witness to the bloody beatings of brown boys accused of the homosexual crime of buggery... the men who believed being vulnerable could only make them stronger... / Amidst the new fangled fads and fallacies, the New Age claims that sexual, racial and economic freedom has finally come for all... / For all the landmarks we celebrate, we are still niggers, and faggots, and minstrel references for jokes created on the funny pages of a white, heterosexual world

[Hook] (x2)

[Bridge]
Man, what in the hell we gone do in this crisis? / I'm fearing 12 more than I fear ISIS /They'll shoot you down just for you being you /Who do you call when they'll kill you too? / Man, when they gone take these chains off me? / When they gone take this shame off me? / When they gone take this blame off me? / When they gone take this frame off me?

[Verse 3]

Midnight on Cloud Nine Lyrics:

ON THE EAST


Hello? / 808 / Bring the kick in / Midnight on Cloud Nine

[Verse 1]
Damez he was six / Movd to Atlanta / Born in Mississippi / Crossed over Alabama / He was on a roll / Always honor roll / Started smoking weed, teaching niggas how to roll / Grew up in the 6 / Niggas hittin' licks / Never hit a lick / But got caught up in the mix / Product of society / Gained notoriety / And it wasn't long 'fore he lost his sobriety / Shit went left (oh shit) / Parents got divorced / Guess they couldn't take it / Guess their marriage ran its course / Mama moved out, mama moved to the north / I was going through it and I know they was the source / Stayed on the east / I became a beast / And what these niggas thought man I worried bout the least / Put to the test / I was different from the rest / Still flexing hard even though I was depressed

[Hook]
And I'm high on a cloud / And I'm gone off the loud / And ima be up here for as long as I'm allowed
I got money on my mind / Money on my mind (x2)
I got

Let 'em breathe

[Verse 2]
And I'm high on a cloud / And I'm gone off the loud / And ima be up here for as long as I'm allowed / This is the intro / Yeah I'm bout to take off / But first let me pick up where the story left off / Damez he was 20 / Had a lot of rage / Full of resentment / He was trapped in a cage / Misunderstood / Gave up on his dreams / Once he got older shit wasn't what it seeemed / Got his heart broken / Became an assassin / Made a hit list and started taking action / Words was his gift and music was his passion / Purchased some equipment and a nigga started rapping / How the fuck you do it? / Niggas asking bout me / Niggas wanting features same niggas used to doubt me / Started with a Honda / Ended with a Benz / Now niggas tryna copy like a motherfucking trend / Still on the east / Still a fucking beast / And what these niggas think / Man I worry bout the least / Getting to the money / Car look like a rental / Smoking on that pressure / Got this money on my mental

[Hook]

I got money on my mind / Money on my mind (x2)
I got

Getting to the money / Car look like a rental / Smoking on that pressure / Got this money on my mental

THE QUEST


[Intro]
Look / I never been the type to take love / And never ever will I fake love / But maybe we can make love, yeah / I kinda like those things you do / You know I still got that thing for you / And maybe I can teach you a thing or two / And maybe we can touch a cloud / We might not make our parents proud / But, fuck it / Cause I be on some cool shit / But I ain't tryna prove shit / If you ain't tryna be down / Then we can just be cool, shit / *laugh* / Forreal though / Like, we should leave it to the birds to hide / We might not make it to the other side / But tell me is you down to ride? / Cause they'll miss us / Before we miss them / And they'll diss us / No matter what we give them / So like, fuck it / You down? / Or nah? / This is the quest

You are now on cloud number nine

[Verse 1]
Sometimes, I sit and wonder if it is what you say / You see, I know I got you feeling some kinda way / I'm trying to feel at home at that place that you stay / Or we, can get it poppin in some shit far away / I still, feel like I'm on a quest for you / Getting dressed feeling like I'm getting dressed for you / Opinionated but you make me digress for you / And I know you gotta do what's best for you / So I'm

[Pre-Chorus]
On cloud nine / Up past my bedtime / No rest at the kingdom / I'm up in my zone / But I'm not alone / All that I can think of is / We should get higher / We can get higher

[Chorus]
Let's start rollin' up on this and let's get higher / Let's get higher / Let's get higher / Let's get higher (x2)

[Verse 2]
You see / I think it's dope that we got two different minds / We got two different paths / And we on two different grinds / We got two different styles / And stand on two different ceilings / But damn, some kinda way we got identical feelings / It's like, I been through hell to get right where I am / And, you been through hell to get right where you are / I think, it's meant to be that we're right where we are / So if, you ever wander just don't wander too far / I'm still

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

But you wasn't really real / You ain't even really fuck with me / All this time passed and the shit still fucks with me / Got me thinking if the shit is what it's supposed to be / You said it was good but the shit just sucked to me / And you was just bad luck to me / Coulda been the one but you was just bad luck to me

[Verse 3]
Ayo / I'm the guy, that's always tryna get high / And sometimes, I like to leave and be at one with the sky / And that's when / I get to thinking, damn another lonely night / Seem like love not for me so I'm just loving my mic / I been through hell and back tryna fill this hole in my heart / And it fails, it just fails / And I'm just back at the start / My sanity then departs / And revenge is what I'm craving / Bodies dropping, steady plotting, thinking bout assassination / As my guard gets stronger / Hit-list gets longer / Am I forever alone / This the shit that I ponder / Are you out there in the world / Or did you already leave it? / If this is what love is / Then shit I don't really need it / So it's just back to the mic / And it's just back to the grind / No more opening up / No more wasting my time

[Outro]
Ima, Ima be up here on a cloud / Til I think it's time to re-up on the loud / Midnight on Cloud Nine

Man look at all the shit that I'm dealing with / This E&J, I'm feelin' it / Let's begin / I'm three shots in / Got another one that I still ain't lit / Got charges that I'm really still paying on / But look at all the money that I done spent / Zone 6 turned to a war zone / And Buckhead tryna go up on rent / My mama tryna sell her condo / Shit done got a little crazy ever since some nigga came and totaled my Hondo / Now I'm riding round in a Benz and I'm with my friends and we all just flexing / You know we not playing and mama keep saying boy you gotta stop driving and texting / But I'm tryna make these moves mama / Gotta keep my mind off of all this bullshit / Cuz shit done got a little iffy / If I don't stay busy nigga might just lose it / Said shit done got a little iffy / If I don't stay busy nigga might just lose it / But I'm just to cool for that / You better prepare cause I'm creepin' and if you was sleepin' then you was a fool for that / I'm bucking on my probation / Tryna stay on top of school so I really don't got no time to be wasting / And I be tryna mind my business but I got these fuck niggas they still hating / But they don't even know what I been through / Need to stop worrying bout me and worry bout yo bitch asking what my Benz do

[Verse 2]
Man look at all the shit that's happening / All this shit still kinda baffling / I remember thinking bout suicide when life was getting too hassling / Actually a nigga really tried it / But it didn't really work out for me / I guess I was a little misguided / I guess God had another route for me / I guess I should light this last one / I'm trying to adjust but who can I trust / Got my own niggas tyna pull a fast one / And I got some niggas doing time in the chain gang / Man they need to free my nigga Evan (Free Blackboy) / Man I miss my nigga Ryan / I swear this shit get so depressing / Wishing they had visitation in heaven / I guess it all made me fearless / Cause none of these niggas are a threat to me / I can't wait til my ex hear this / Just know you'll always be a regret to me / I'm bucking on my probation / I probably smell like a pound / My heart is so cold and so heavy / My head so heavy from the crown / I'm feeling like I'm the grreatest / Cause I been down but came back on my throne / Fuck it I feel like the bravest / Better know I'm doing this on my own / Better know I'm doing this for my niggas / All of my niggas stayed down from the jump / I'm coming for seven figures / I only take premium gas on my pump

[Hook]

Damn I'm fucked up / I'm just / I'm just / I'm tryna hold it together

[Verse 3]
I'm feeling so fucking faded / I think I need to slow down a bit / But I can't slow down til after I make it / You thinking everything's peachy / Like I got it easy like its an elective / That hating shit so ineffective / I know that its all subjective / I'm tryna give you a different perspective / I'm tryna give you a look at my life / I been to jail but I'm not going back / My daddy said always stay humble / Stay outta trouble and try not to slack / Cause its all about the progression / So ima keep counting my blessings / And I'm still learning my lessons / A nigga get so fucking tired of these questions / Like what is yo orientation? / And when the fuck did you start rapping? / How did you get a Mercedes? / Boy yo folks must have been trapping / I'm bout to let niggas have it / But I'm just too paid for that / Yall can keep judging while I'm busy cutting the check / You know I got the spade for that

THE PALISADES


[Part 1: Bang Bang]
I was five and he was six / We always had the freshest kicks / He wore red and I wore blue / Know many but trust a few / Bang bang / He shot him down / Bang bang / He hit the ground / Bang bang / That awful sound / Bang bang / My brother was shot down...

[Part 2: The Palisades]

[Verse 1]

Wondering why I'm breathing / Don't really have much to believe in / Damn / Gotta stop talking crazy / What's gotten in to me lately / Wondering where I'll be / I looked in the mirror don't quite know what I see / Now I wake up with hesitation / Still wishing heaven had a visitation

[Pre-Chorus]
Gotta get away turn off my phone / Maybe I was meant to be alone / Take another shot of the Patron / And I'm gone, gone

[Chorus]
I can hear the gunshot in my head / I sleep with the darkness in my bed / I'm not the same / And I'll never be, no / I can see the light shine from the moon / But I still feel the darkness in my room / I'm not the same / And I'll never be, no

[Verse 2]
Wondering where the time went / Now I'm wondering where my mind went / I swear yesterday I was on ten / And now I'm wondering where my nine went

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Gotta get away turn off my phone / He was left bleeding all alone / Had to tell my parents on my own / On my own, own

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]

Woken up out of my sleep / Another faded night at the spot / Had a bunch of missed calls and some msised texts / Saying yo brother was shot / I'm like tell me that he's still breathing / You don't know nobody that stayed? / He like everybody took off running / And all I know is that it happened at The Palisades / And I heard it was the football team / It was gunshots and blood shed / JSU never called my parents / To tell em that their son was dead / Man I fought for you like crazy / But I screamed when your casket went down the grave / And they say that life goes on but / Fuck that, I'll never flip the page / And I swear I'll never forget you / Man I just wanna be with you / And why couldn't they take me and not you / I wish God would tell me he meant to / He was gone too soon / Why they stop his shine / Why they stop his shine / They say time heals pain / Guess I need more time / Guess I need more time / Man them bitch niggas jumped my brother / And I still remember they names / And I got plans of fucking revenge / Shit I might be fucking insane / Man I just miss my brother / You don't even know the half of what I been through / What's the phone number to heaven? / I swear I'd pay my last to get through

[Outro]
Wondering where the time went / Now I'm wondering where my mind went / I swear yesterday I was on ten / And now I'm wondering where my nine went


SINNER


[Verse 1]
You got one life to live / Gone head and be you / Gone head and be free / They gone love it when you do / But wait, hold up / Cause that ain't really true / They don't really like it when you really being you / They don't wanna know about the shit you really do / About the sins you commit by the people that you screw / About the shit you really do / About the sins you commit by the people that you screw

[Hook]
If it all goes well then I will / Please Lord just forgive me for my sins / Please Lord just forgive me for my sins / But what if I don't? / Just forgive me for my sins / Please Lord just forgive me for my sins / And I just be minding my business / It's no secret, its just none of your business / I'll be right where I was before

[Verse 2]


TAKE THE WORLD


[Verse 1]
I wish I could be high forever / I wish my parents would have stayed together / I really hope I'm not wasting my time / Or my nickels and dimes / Tryna spit these rhymes / And I really hope you're content and shit / I mean, really I just wanna vent and shit / I remember, holding you until the time ran out then I would hold on to your words and your scent and shit / But, we don't even really talk no more / And, I guess it kinda still fucks with me / Cuz, I couldn't guess where you are right now / And, you were sorta like a must for me / But, I couldn't be who you wanted me to / It was, always a lack of trust from me

[Pre-Chorus]
But I know / But I know / How It be / How it go / Oh / And I, wanna give up but they say / It'll be okay / It'll be all just fine

[Bridge]
I wanna believe 'em but it's strenuous / I don't even know what's right no more / This loss of hope is continuous / I don't even have it in me to fight no more

[Chorus]
But I / If I give up it will be the death of me / I know I can take over the world
But I / I can't give up it won't get the best of me / I know I can take the world

[Verse 2]
I wish that you had a different perception / I wish I didn't try to chase perfection / I really just wanna face the world and chase my dreams without the fear of rejection so / I'm really tryna be brave right now / But I'm really losing all my faith right now / Because I'm looking a you / And you looking at me / But none of us really know what to say right now / And I really can't change the situation / If I could you know I would with no hesitation / You know this world is a crazy place / I kinda wish we coulda changed the pace / I can't be who you want me to so / I think its best that we keep the space

[Pre-Chorus]

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]

I'm still wishing you would call my phone / Maybe you will once you hear my song / The heart gets heavy and the road gets long / Nightmares of growing old and being all alone / I'm really tryna chase my dreams doe / Can't let love and these mothafuckas stop me / Sometimes we take advantage of the days too much / And these nights I don't even like to say too much cause I

[Pre-Chorus]

[Bridge]
I don't even have it in me to fight no more

[Chorus]

I can't give up, it won't get the best of me / I know I can take the world / I know I can take the world
