Track Name: Path Less Traveled
Shy Kevin:
The path I travel is a path less taken
Arise with the sun
Im waking up to the day
Partaking in my daily duties
But loathing the situation
I'm sick of this feeling
This life ain't appealing
Walk in my shoes
And see the gloom revealing
Half the time I stare at the ceiling
With numbing euphoria
Mary Jane's healing
Moms don't like it kinda feel guilty
But I still repeat the stuff I do
Much different from you
I'm trying to find some meaning
Some meaning to be true
But I feel so low must be the proof
To why I roll solo
Taking life's blows
And making a picture to it
Through this rhymescapage
Flowing smooth as fluids
You can't escape it your attached You've been sucked through
To the path less taken
Unraveled it's been
And a mystery it stays from deep within
This be Nathanael Blaze and Kevin

Nathanael Blaze:
About seven years ago I started taking this lonely road
Stayed secluded, friends excluded, roaming an only soul
Tried to get a few kisses but they said I'm an ugly toad
Continually acting cocky now I hardly even boast
I love learning and that's what sets me apart
High IQ I'm sharp like a dart, at twelve I started making my art
Making a mark, truly a student to being hip hop and I won't ever stop
They want me to go to school and get an education,
I wanna leave home and follow my aspirations
Exasperated, aggravated, if my flow isn't activated
Taking my chances I have to make it
Spitting so much that it's salivation
Dwelling inside of the foulest nation
The way of the dollar just hollers temptation
Doing this music the path less taken
I've traveled and dabbled in rap
Now sticking to it like thumbtacks
Intelligence not what I lack
Racking the leaves from my path
Ripping up my shoe strings
Wandering aimlessly and never know what I will be doing

Chorus:
Developing, settling in my skin
Waiting on life to unravel
Already known since I was a kid
Id take the path less traveled
Track Name: Tainted
Chorus:
Broken written all over my heart, mosaic
Perfect isn't perfect but it's close, ain't it?
How can this canvas be fully painted?
When the water colors that I use are tainted

Nathanael Blaze:
They say patience is a virtue, I can't wait
I'll grab my horses and then let them out their reigns
Life is strange
Like a society based on being civilized when were all born deranged
Go as far as you please
Everything has polar opposites what matters isn't the range my main squeeze
Reality is the hardest tea to swallow
I read it under the cap of a Snapple bottle
Real shit though, I saw my mom cry over money I need to get dough
Known that from the get go, I could sell it to you like a Gecko
Wondering what's rent fo'
Why do we have to pay to live in a life so special
If it wasn't me then who's be doodling with this pencil
If it wasn't for drugs would I reach my full potential
Don't wanna end up like my cousin Kanyon
Take too much acid, Xanax, mushroom caps, the devils cabbage
Popping E till he can't manage he has asked to be in jail
I love my cousin to death but I saw it all unveil
Imagine being in a situation where someone is spacing so hard that they run around your yard chasing their imagination
Times are changing, I talked to my grandma to say that I would make it
I multiply negatives to make positives
The biggest secret is to stay positive

Chorus:
Broken written all over my heart, mosaic
Perfect isn't perfect but it's close, ain't it?
How can this canvas be fully painted?
When the water colors that I use are tainted


Shy Kevin:
Can I make it happen?
To make change and find peace everlasting
Through this cold world vice is distracting
Killing pain with a temporary satisfaction
And through the perils of destruction darkness falls
Meaning laughter no longer plays the ball
Alone in my mind I've reached my downfall
But gotta pick myself up and keep my head strong
And by the making of these songs
Is how I keeps from sweaty palms
I be the offspring of my spawn
But stay low key to what's really going on
Cause if moms knew the truth
Then it's really bringing on unnecessary worry
Cause she taught me right from wrong
But why is it that I still repeat what I saw?
As a young-in up late nights can never sleep
Odd as it may seem this is now normal to me
So tag along on this journey
Hang with me and see the flames of the fire burning
I'm yearning for some truth
Give me something real not absolute
Cause perfection is surreal
And you know this to be true
So what you wanna do
I let it go like this and I'm doing it
And multiply it by 3
We're coming on socialeyes divided by thee

Chorus:
Broken written all over my heart, mosaic
Perfect isn't perfect but it's close, ain't it?
How can this canvas be fully painted?
When the water colors that I use are tainted
Track Name: Middle Class Tragedy
Shy Kevin:
it's the middle class tragedy bourgeois
can't make a withdraw
never gettin any bounty
collecting low income salary
working two jobs so demanding
hold on prepare for the landing
brace for impact as the mans distracting
acting like he doesn't know
extracting the globe with bullshit through they're lobes
hittin on them slopes
caught around the neck its a rope
but that's a no no this ain't back in the days this is present
and now they're laughing at my people like its some kind of joke
knock knock who's there? it's the flow tryin to downsize who they chose cause them guys unfold with control
putting limitations on everything little thing I don't understand
is it just me?
well here's a little demonstration
when in use of intimidation
it only makes it worse
my proposition is this
write a verse if I could do this then id quit work
cause all this pressure be making me a jerk
I wanna make a difference like Simon Birch
like a bird perched I'm doing my research on my next destination
no explanation no expiration
I'm good forever
learning my style attempt to be clever
through earths bad weather I fly away with the help of my feathers

Chorus:
(Fuck) Its the middle class tragedy
(Livin') In the middle class tragedy
(Stuck) Its the middle class tragedy
(Chillin') In the middle class tragedy

Nathanael Blaze:
I'm trynna stay level headed in an earth that always spins
Bourgeoise odds against us were ruled by the one percent
Have us all in cubicles only eating sugar cubes
Social security numbered what is a peasant to do
In the ghetto yo they'll have us all in concentration camps
Fake lottery winnings so we always take a chance
They want us to be educated but not bright
They tell you you got freedom but they got you locked tight
The middle class tragedy is actually happening
Still nobodies panicking they're walking on passively
Born inside the system this is not where I asked to be
Rather be stranded on an island living happily
Endless police brutality, once lost hope in humanity
Slaving and breaking our backs and they get paid handsomely?
What the fuck is that the calamity of the fact
Were chilling in bugs life letting grasshoppers bully us ants
Give me a chance, listen to my words and we can advance
War on drugs? HA! More like war on us
Marijuanas a flower that'll get you locked up
Big brothers giving me a scowl
Hitting me behind these lines like it was a foul
I'll put my life in these bars before I live my life behind bars
Damn the man is reigning like a tropical storm

Chorus:
(Fuck) Its the middle class tragedy
(Livin') In the middle class tragedy
(Stuck) Its the middle class tragedy
(Chillin') In the middle class tragedy
Track Name: Cosmic
Nathanael Blaze:
As I'm staring at the sky I begin to realize
That minuscule, intervals, change the course of life
Vision is simulated data made up to blind
My mission is to climb the mind and sit with Einstein
Rhythmic to the divine, significant design
And in time I'll find the signs to finally unwind
Wanna reach the peak at least within a week
Think so much on my poetic touch in speech
I listen to this beat with a stethoscope
Sending you this message in an envelope
No copy and paste waste my breath on every note
Im trynna see my life through a telescope
Connecting to you like a telephone
Can hear me now? I'm hella dope
Strumming the strings of puppets so they feel my vibrations
The struggle of being an artist is there is no vacations
Chances are a chance is what I'm taking
Things will only happen if you make them

Hook:
A different day a different topic
Body feelin' cosmic
Socialeyes through your optics

Shy Kevin:
I'm stuck in this land of sheep ruled by machines
everyday's a new scene
flashy cloths tight jeans
medical vaccines and 3D screens
surround sound all schemes
livin in democracy run by top dog regimes
I deem this a situation unseen
by the ones all about the Benjamin's
cash money green
you know that cream
half of you Livin upstream
but me I got a dream
two on my team
running past between
present and future a keen sense of purpose
senseless and worthless
calm one my surface
but inside I'm nervous
mute when I make a purchase
antisocial curses
you only really hear me on my verses
working civil service
I drowned but never surfaced
strictly underground
pound for pound
it runs in my circuits
words for you to interpret
no microchip inserted
averted from the dumb
feelings coming from my heart but my bodies numb

Hook:
A different day a different topic
Body feelin' cosmic
Socialeyes through your optics
