Track Name: You've Gotta Be You!
Get your mind right. Start thinking for yourself.
You don't need to impress anybody else.
This is your life, live it.
It's a beautiful gift that you've been given.
Don't fall victim to the system.
Resist 'em and their authority.
It's not necessarily important to be part of the majority.
I just feel like there's more to me.
More than they're telling me. More than they're selling me.
I need to see for myself or I'll never be able to rest without knowing that I gave it my best to make a little sense out of this mess.

Don't ever let 'em tell you what to do!
You've gotta be you!
And don't believe everything they tell you.
It might not be true.
It's never to late to make that move.
You can always improve!
Just please, never let 'em tell you what to do
'cause, fool, you gotta be you!

I'm hecka fortunate to be who I am.
Idiosyncracies and imperfections.
Individual, I don't fit a mold.
I do what I want, not exactly what I'm told.
I could never understand following the plans of another man when I can stand on my own two.
Can't think for yourself? That's on you!
'Cause I could never live that way.
I've gotta be free to make my own mistakes.
Above the influence of all these snakes.
Whatever it takes to avoid the hate
and the negativity that this poison creates.
I think I need to escape. I mean I've gotta be me.
Life ain't worth living if you can't be free.
We all need a little room to breathe.
Ya feel me?

Don't ever let 'em tell you what to do!
You've gotta be you!
And don't believe everything they tell you.
It might not be true.
It's never to late to make that move.
You can always improve!
Just please, never let 'em tell you what to do
'cause, fool, you gotta be you!

Break those chains. Face that fear.
Respect who you see when you look i the mirror.
God made each and everyone of us unique.
Different ways to think. Different ways to speak.
Different ways to act and we all interact
for the good and the bad of it.
Ya gotta love it!
It's in every person on this earth
from our birth until we're back in the dirt.
Ya gotta put in work to figure out who you are and where you're going.
Sometimes it's hard.
I mean, I'm not even sure how I made it this far!
But, one thing's for certain...
I might not be perfect, but I'm doing my best to be an honest person.
Good people, bad habits and the world keeps turning.
And your boy keeps learning.
I'm trying to keep my soul from burning!

Don't ever let 'em tell you what to do!
You've gotta be you!
And don't believe everything they tell you.
It might not be true.
It's never to late to make that move.
You can always improve!
Just please, never let 'em tell you what to do
'cause, fool, you gotta be you!
Track Name: Simple Principles
Is that a mic? Let me get it!
A blunt? I won't hit it!
Yeah, I used to smoke crack.
But, now I ain't down with it.
Man enough to admit it.
I'm loving how I'm living.
Never listen to a critic 'cause I got my own vision.
I'm seeing things different then I maybe might've used to.
We all make mistakes, but only when we choose to.
Move through phases. Evolution is inevitable.
Progress a process. The outcome's incredible.
Suffering's a blessing. A lesson we must learn.
Necessary oppurtunities where growth is concerned.
If you don't go through it, how you gonna overcome it?!
It's only a waste of time if you fail to learn from it.
Stop running from your problems. Take the time to try and solve 'em.
It does no good to hide. If you're not climbing, you're falling.
It's really quite simple if you take a sec to think about it.
Live. Love. Life. I tell ya this because I care about ya!

We smooth it on out.
The principles are simple, yo.
We smooth it on out.
And clean it up. x4

When push comes to shove and you can't say love, need to take a look above and start asking what you're lacking.
Time for some action. Get up and uplift.
Rediscover who you are. Let your consciousness shift.
Get off the headtrips, the same for mindgames.
Faith beyond Heaven explained in my name.
It's the principles of giving and living without pain.
Free from all fears. No losses, all gain.
Getting out of self, but never too far.
'Cause everywhere you go, right there's where you are.
It's where you've always been.
Beigin to transcend beyond the physical.
Exist from within.
Perception of intention: a definition of sin.
Analyze your motivation before taking action.
Recognize the similarities, respect the differences.
Everything is everything.
Can't you see how simple this is?

We smooth it on out.
The principles are simple, yo.
We smooth it on out.
And clean it up. x4

Freedom ain't free. The fee's responsibility.
Only one authority applies to me. That's G-O-D!
Coming straight out the underground focused on ascension.
No stress, no tension. Love, not aggression.
I only hate hate and negative mindstates.
Pray and meditate before any move I make.
Eliminates the frequency in which I make mistakes.
It pays to contemplate, there's a lot at stake.
And there's a lot to fate that we have yet to understand.
So we've gotta think, have faith, and make a plan.
Overstand discipline. Delay gratification.
Project positive, witness manifestation.
Activated demonstration achieved through education and proper application of acquired information.
Despite the odds your facing, never more than you can bear.
Difficulty met with capablity. So well prepared!

We smooth it on out.
The principles are simple, yo.
We smooth it on out.
And clean it up. x4
Track Name: Crimson Ca$h Flow
Everse:
In pursuit of a blood stained dream that no suds could ever remove the stains from, we never hear the screams.
Tortured sounds drowned by the mechanical whir of machines.
So many frowns seen painted upon the faces of the beat down
who havin trouble livin within they means. All traces of humanity wiped clean to fuel their vanity.
Blind eyes don't recognize. Never seeing that they're supreme beings
without a single material thing that glitters.
A taste so bitter left in my mouth when I consider what a waste of time
that paper chase gets to be.
Soul withers and decays as we burn in material daze. Days turn to weeks, blurred.
I wonder if they understand how we...

Chorus:
Sponsor carnage with every penny spent. 8.25%
Crim$on Ca$h Flow
Surface polished to a sheem, still feel so unclean.
We've all been chasing that green. We're stumbling.
Crim$on Ca$h Flow
We think you ought to know this.
The paper trail is blood soaked and if you fail to notice...
We ain't envious of your ignorant bliss
'cause ignorance 'bout to be the stop of this cycle of malignance.

Isaac Nolte:
Where the money went? Huh?
How's it getting spent?
I can barely pay my rent after Uncle Scam gets
25% of everything I make.
They take and take and take and take. But wait...
I can understand paving roads and paying those
who educate our children. But, I can't support building
the military industrial complex.
Fat cats, banking cartels lining their pockets.
This is nonsense.
Taxation without adequate representation.
Presidential administrations invading nations
without hesitation or provocation or probable cause.
The system is flawed. I'm exposing the fraud.

Chorus:
Sponsor carnage with every penny spent. 8.25%
Crim$on Ca$h Flow
Surface polished to a sheem, still feel so unclean.
We've all been chasing that green. We're stumbling.
Crim$on Ca$h Flow
We think you ought to know this.
The paper trail is blood soaked and if you fail to notice...
We ain't envious of your ignorant bliss
'cause ignorance 'bout to be the stop of this cycle of malignance.


Everse:
The way the system's bent, eventually every cent seems to return to the same 13 pockets.
They let the world burn just to watch it, oblivious to the obviously insidious effects.
Hexed by the object of your desire. Simply fuel for the fire.
The beast is alive and well, thrivin off of your hell.
He divide and conquer your realm so keep a watchful eye
Senseless defense expenditures don't provide no lullaby.
Enemy within's tenure extends and the end times won't cease to begin
until you find the strength to bend those bars.
Mend those scars, we've been hit so hard.
Conceive a method of reckoning through a beckoning call perceived from afar.

Chorus:
Sponsor carnage with every penny spent. 8.25%
Crim$on Ca$h Flow

We ain't envious of your ignorant bliss
'cause ignorance 'bout to be the stop of this cycle of malignance.


Isaac Nolte:
You know what? You can have the money.
'Cause what's really worth something, you can never take from me.
It ain't nothing but paper, anyway. Go on and chase it.
I don't really need it, never did. Know what I'm saying?
I make money. Money don't make me.
My needs are met. That's my only concern. Feel me?
Filthy rich? No, I ain't the one.
There's a lot more to life. I'm thinking fun, not funds.
Repay to Caeser what belongs to Caeser
and to God what belongs to God. It's quite obvious.
There ain't a thing you can bring along with you.
Detach from the material world and all it's issues.

Track Name: Yeah, Man feat. Everse and Worm Wrok
Everse:
You could be surprised at the type of chain reaction that a grin can light.
Lend some thought to how mighty every action might be.
Sight me inciting a cycle inside the circles I contact,
igniting a drive to the right things. Might bring
some insight to why you're alive.
I try and reside in a proper headspace with an overactive mind that's dead weight.
Ride out the tough times, ain't takin guff from these swine.
What can I call mine? Enough to keep me lovin that sunshine
approachin' from the east. Got a home and food to eat.
As do you, appreciate man. Keep the peace.

So you're saying we should all get along?
Yeah, man.
You feel better doing right than wrong?
Yeah, man.
That's the reason why you're writing these songs?
Yeah, man.
I get it.
Yeah, man.
Are you with it?
Yeah, man.
Alright.

Isaac Nolte:
If it ain't from the heart then it ain't worth much.
Needs to be something I can feel, reach out and touch.
C'mon, tell me something good. I'm tired of the bad news.
What about you? And what about you?
That's why I choose to view everyday as a lovely day just as long as I wake up.
There's so many blessings that I can think of.
Peace to the homies. That's why I never gave up.
Love to my family for the way I was raised up.
Everybody's different, but we go through the same stuff.
Stuck in the same rut just trying to make it.
So quit being judgemental. Chill with the hatred.
'Cause I'm thinking it might be easier if we at least gave it a try to get along with one another.
I mean, it couldn't hurt. Right?
Seems obvious to me. But, maybe that's just me.
Common sense if you agree that's the way things ought to be.

So you're saying we should all get along?
Yeah, man.
You feel better doing right than wrong?
Yeah, man.
That's the reason why you're writing these songs?
Yeah, man.
I get it.
Yeah, man.
Are you with it?
Yeah, man.
Alright.
