Casey, and the hiphop collective, Manifest life third eye perspective, Man, I bless Mics, drop down direction,  Bam, I ride nikes ‘lot in my collection. Excite ignite the light on bike day, Get outta my way, Ayye, Hoffman wit’ the mic lay, Mic spray all day, Tommy Blaze sun rays. Nuttin’ changed but the frames on the sunshades, ayye! Quest for harmony, Soul is music, Lyrics apart of me, Theres light, Might be hard to see, My artistry, James Harden three: That’s wet! It’s a bet. Pull up, On the set, Funk! Flex! Round 2 mound crew round noon, This how The Boro smell as a tune. In with the vapors, Out skyscrapers, Strapped with the raps and a flask full of makers. Trapped in the Apps and the full pursuit of paper, Create cultivate and release to my neighbors, Shaquille know the deal, Alley - oop, it’s a favor! N.G.F.S - much love to my Quakers! Been makin’ raps since bad behavior, Shaq blowin’ horns since he was born! Needle to the groove, wax get torn; Sworn and tossed into oblivion! It’s the mad villain! Assemble the swordsman! Jive in my mental, Live at the temple, Kidz These Daze, Yeah, its official! Comrades, BamBam - drop the mental! (Tommy Blaze336)

Fall 07:49
Fall What once was green, from red to brown… All things from up above lain on the ground. As sun sets, making way for for night, Darkness replaces light… Everything’s defined by time, And a careless loss is a careful find. Before you gain the strength to stand, You must first survive the FALL… You say your way of seeing things is holier than mine; I seek the reality of what we leave behind; And what’s so bad 'bout dying (if what you say is true): That it’s only in this falling that we make room for new… Before you gain the strength to stand, You must first survive the FALL… (Bill & Becca Stevens)

Thanks 2 U 07:24
Thanks 2 U Every day’s a maze made of distraction, And every night's a fight to get some sleep. Every time I finally find some traction, The wind blows and knocks me off my feet! When I get lost you always find me; I forget and you remind me; (I’ve never been equipped with what I need) The treasures in my chest, you gave me; I know nobody else can save me; The moment that we met my soul was free! Thanks 2U! I’ve fallen without falling, Punch drunk without a fight, I’m breathless, yet still breathing… Head over heels, yet I’m still walking; Speechless, though you’ve got me talking to you; Over the moon while I’m still standing… I guess it’s true I can’t explain it, don’t make no sense, but I feel it: I’m in LOVE with the things you do! In the dark I scramble for the light switch, And I turn to shed some light on what was wrong. I came to find the way to get there fastest, Was to lay back down and let the light burn on… When you got lost you rambled deeper, Settled in an fell asleep, Disappeared, and chose not to be found. I searched with fire to split the darkness, I gave my heart ’til I got heartless, And now I know the one thing that’s true: Thanks 2U! I’ve fallen without falling, Punch drunk without a fight, I’m breathless, yet still breathing… Head over heels, yet I’m still walking; Speechless, though you’ve got me talking to you; Over the moon while I’m still standing… This vibe is so brand new! I can’t explain it, don’t make no sense, but I feel it: I’m in LOVE with the things you do! (Bill Stevens & Ben Vinograd)

Mix, Visual physical harmony, With Bazarov indifference, Kicks of Baryshnikov, Thumpin' kalashnikov arteries, which... Pardon my Russian, I’m rushin' a bit, Thru this Sisyphus Ian trip. The gist of it’s basically this: Isn’t it funny the feeling of funk, In the pit of the spine, When the mind is adrift? Like, where does it go? How did it get? Out of the body and into your head, So you can be bumpin' and grindin' at 9:59, And then blind in the alley at 10:00. Like, Allakazam! Man, I was supposed to be something, But suddenly am nothing, But running for cover from nothing, But nothing is coming as fast as it can, Bam! Misery loving the company, Giddy with sending the senses to Coventry, bloke. Give me a sip of oblivion, So I can live in the now, it’s a brilliant joke! I’m comedian, Karma chameleon, Corny as ever, But coming and goin, Is a form of Nirvana, I wanna be... Oh well, whatever, now never, You know what the difference is, Between the moment an infiniteness? Sorry, no punch line to this: Kidz These Daze, There’s only a fist! Guess those are similes, Interesting if there’s a symmetry between the infinite bliss, And nothing but running for cover from nothing, But nothing is coming as fast as it is, Yes! I am not an animal, I just feed like one, Need like one. I am not a capitalist I just exist in some system. Don’t blame the drum for the beat. Don’t blame the sun for the heat. Don’t make me stop litigating myself I might see... My self. Sailing my ownership, Impaled on the mast like Odysseus, With the onerous calls of sirens on full blast. Like: “Stop! We accidentally chained ourselves to the past!” With nothing but running for cover from nothing, But nothing is coming so fast. (Ian Merrigan)

Walk 06:07
Walk I go on a walk, Don’t go to far they say, But the swamp and the trails are calling, Don’t get lost out on the way… …to the sunrise, or the sunset that you seek, If nature is showing, You better take a peek! Much of nature is friendly, And some is a dread. The trails that we tread upon, May be full of the dead, But don’t be afraid! You know that nature is calling. The best thing to do, Is to keep going without falling. This walk is the way, To let go of the fear. Fear that encompasses brings me to tears, So keep going on, It’s the best thing you can do, ‘Cause Nature is calling, calling on you… Much of nature is friendly, And some is a dread. The trails that we tread upon, May be full of the dead, But don’t be afraid! You know that nature is calling. The best thing to do, Is to keep going without falling. (Casey Cranford)
