about

"Mirror Music" is the next evolutionary step in my journey as a growth seeking being. I use music as a vehicle to express a message that is unique for each listener but universal in nature. I truly hope that the words used in conjunction with the music inspires thought, change, growth and most of all self examination. It is my deepest desire to make an impact on you the listener to become the best version of yourself for the benefit of the world around you. I ask that you listen responsibly, and thereafter act accountably.

Acknowledgements:

First and foremost I'd like to thank my phenomenal wife. She's endured many a night without me as I've worked to complete this vision. Her patience and understanding have been nothing short of inspirational. You've been the voice of reason in seemingly chaotic times and for that I thank you my love!

Thank you to my mother Robin Hurd-Graham and my Father John G. Graham Sr. for their unwavering support and guidance throughout my life but especially during the time of this project. Your wisdom and love are irreplaceable and I'm forever appreciative for having parents like you.

I have been fortunate enough to cross the paths of some of the most amazingly talented producers on the face of the planet and for that I offer extreme gratitude. I'd like to thank Kuddie Fresh for showing support to an unknown artist with a message. He's a rare species in an ego driven industry and I'm most appreciative of him recognizing the importance of what I'm aiming to do.
I'd like to thank Corey "StepChild" Smith who provided the first brick in the house that is "Mirror Music". I'm forever thankful to Ali for helping our paths connect man.

I want to thank Configa (www.Configa.com) for reaching out and connecting all the way from London. He's not only a phenomenal producer but he's a brilliant mind and great person to build with.

A warm shout goes to the young talent and beautiful spirit that is Shawn Kyle. He is the future of music and I'm fortunate to have had an opportunity to work with him professionally and to know him personally in the infant stages of his musical journey.

A huge thank you goes to David "Drumcrazie" Curby for extending his talents to the project. He's an amazing producer that creates with a passion that is evident in every song. I'm grateful to have the pleasure of working with you.

Last and furthest from least I'd like to thank Amir Swain. He's not only a phenom producer, he's an untouchable engineer. We've weathered the storm of deadlines and communication and as a result we've constructed a solid piece of music that I believe will stand the test of time. Without your talents the world would not have heard me clearly. Thank you.

A special thank you goes to my good friend and brother Andre Rodriguez. Without you bro, this really could not have been possible. Your friendship and unforgiving honesty has been integral to my successes and I appreciate you for being you throughout it all. Love goes to all of my Camorra family who have helped me to become the me that I am today. Can I get "C"?

A huge thank to Loi "Buffy" Laing for making a connection to the music that I make, but more importantly for being a beautiful spirit that I call a friend. Much love to you and the "Water Bearer."

A major thank you goes to Gary Chlapaty of Joeggernaut Design (Brilliantjojo@gmail.com) for producing such an amazing visual to capture the concept I had in my mind. The Album artwork speaks volumes my friend.

I'd like to thank "Q" from TheMadBloggers.com for being one of the first to believe in the music I've recorded enough to share it with the hip-hop. community at large. Thank you for listening honestly and intently and most of all thank you for your artistic contributions to "John Graham Presents: The Reflection Series".

I'd like to thank Alex at TheGoodLifeReviews.com for giving my work a ton of energy. His features and write-ups on the music have helped to introduce "Ego Free" hip-hop to a vast audience and for that I'm ever grateful.

Thank you to DJ Wayneski and Jessica at iHeartdilla.com for recognizing the power hip-hop in its purest forms and remaining faithful to the art that has inspired the world creatively. Most of all, thank you for playing my songs on the Independents Day Shows and for cutting Kanye West short to play my song "Extra-Terrestrial Thoughts." That was unreal!

A thank you to Bobby, Skylyn, DJ Nisa, and DSL Radio for their unwavering support of the music and for giving me a platform to share a message with the world.

A special thank you goes to another friend along the journey, Ali Myers at AliMyers.net for helping to spread the messages in my music to his network. Thank you for all the Youtube video endorsements and the attentive ear when I needed to vent my friend!

If I've left anyone out please know that it was unintentional and I thank you for your contributions, support, and energy! If I never record another song after this album, I can feel confident that I've touched lives through my talents, gifts, and abilities, and that to me is the true measure of success.

Love & Light to all,

John

Track Name: The Re-Awakening (Prod. By Kuddie Fresh)
Let’s begin with a stretch, open your eyes reach for the sky and draw forth the deepest of breathes.

These are the steps by which your achievements are met, follow my lead as we proceed to leave our regrets

The following composition is a manuscript, for you to master the self within the body you are captured in.

It’s not by accident, that you are hearing this in fact it’s quite intentional, my passion has attracted it.

This is for graduates of Ascension Methods, if you haven’t heard that album you may feel you’re being lapped a bit!

The reawakening, is where I am taking things, I’ll share examples of, what having patience brings.

How knowing truth produces, a deeper faith in dreams, it’s an emotion picture, try not to make a scene!

Don’t need your undivided; I need your multiplied, I need your open eyes, beholding light my soul provides.

Regardless of belief systems and controls devised, by those with silver spoons, to keep you gold deprived.

What you’re about to witness has never been revealed, the very nature of the words I speak could get me killed.

But I am not afraid, and you should not be either, this is the time to test the meddle of so called believers,

This albums child friendly, but it’s not Justin Bieber, there is no vanity or violence the discussion’s deeper.

I hope you trust the teacher, to lead you through the maze, remove the blindfolds witness the light of day!

This is a new beginning, just like the after life, we’re children of the sun, cause we have mastered night!
Track Name: Light's Revenge (Prod. By Kuddie Fresh)
Verse:

Arise, that is the treatment when I arrive, it’s as if I’m royalty lighting up all the sky

I am a modern marvel appearing before your eyes, the night could never overcome this energy of mine!

Saying that I am positive is simply stating the obvious your negativity happens to be my polar opposite.

Let this be a testament they read from the scroll, digesting the sentiments could make you bleed from your nose.

Trust me there is no time for your belief in a ghost, so consider this a sign and find relief in your souls.

You can call this the Gospel of John, It seems that no apostle’s could follow the thoughts in his mind.

I’ve even seen the colossal decline; I have witnessed all the rulers of the world become the paupers in mine.

I am the energy of eleven hundred and seventy; reincarnations embrace the very nature of everything.

I am the positive and negative, I’m the neutral in the balance of everything that has ever lived.

I have given all the problems to the mathematicians; I am speaking to the deaf and I command you to listen.

You are grasping for wisdom, from a master magician, I have set truth and ignorance on a path of collision.

The knowledge has been limited by words and a beat, delivered through another human version of me.

This is like a journal or a purge and release, so this is my return to an eternal belief.

You are more than welcomed now to journey with me, but you should not proceed if you think learning is free.

The cost is your heart and mind, a teacher isn’t hard to find, knock upon the door and they shall be revealed in proper time.

Your thoughts are the keepers of destiny; change your mind to change reality, the ingredients to the recipe.

You are the embodiments of a heavenly energy, sent to be the achievers of everything that is meant to be.

Now breathe, and take a moment to internalize, what you have witnessed was a vision of my eternal eye.

I am living decisions I made before the birth of I, bet it’s embedded deep enough to merge with your vertebry.

I mean vertebrae, what you had heard him say, doesn’t fit in with what the mosques, temples or churches say.

Now that is solid truth, we’re being separated even mis-educated, mentally you’re segregated.

You think the mountain is to high and you will never make it, if you decline to climb, then how will you get elevated.

You are not the cross, the star, the crescent; you are a reflection of the eternal omnipresent.

I love without religion, I’m divine in essence, light’s the only weapon that killed darkness in legend’s.

Really you don’t believe, uh uh you don’t believe, cause if you did then you wouldn’t judge me so comfortably.

What you’re discovering is that the words I’m uttering shouldn’t be confused with this that or the other things.

That I’ve stated plainly, this might just make you angry, you might look at me differently like I am not the same me.

I offer no rebuttal, indeed I won’t defend, the truth need’s no defense, so why should I pretend.

Concern is genuine, regardless of the various differences in your melanin; you’re made of elements.

Just let that settle in, it’s undeniable, that we are connected the other points irrelevant.

They think I’m being preachy, but I’m just being me, I’m being observant of every single thing I see.

That’s where this life begins, and the other one must end, darkness shall not prevail this is the lights revenge!
Track Name: It's That Serious (Prod. By Kuddie Fresh)
Verse 1:

When I indent the page, assemble all my thoughts and crack my knuckles, I deliver inner secrets of a sage.

This is so much deeper than a grave, more visions than a preacher in a cave, my words make speakers into slaves.

My energy is low from giving all my light away but the enlightened know, that it’s replenished right away.

I vacate to hideaways that don’t respect your right of way, duality of night and day,
You serious?

but I could spray and I could say and after that my mind fold and find a way, to face the man in the mirror like Michael say.

Murdering microwaves, ever so effortless, effectively transforming Decepticons like I’m Michael Bay.

Won’t you come right this way, follow behind and keep an open mind as I reveal more light than a disciples grace.
Welcome to church y’all. First sermon.

Verse 2:

I give you everything I have, my lyrics are extensions of my heart, which torn apart would equal half.

But I am an apprentice in the lab, eventually the energy will end between the spirit and the man.

But I get calls from family members telling me they can’t, seem to get there life together and need a helping hand.

But I have some demands, become accountable for that which wasn’t in your plans.

and know that you attract it please begin to understand
That there is nothing I can do but lead you to the banks of an oasis in the sand.

I’m past the point of praying, my wish for you and everyone who listens, just absorb the essence of the words I’m sayin'.

My logic isn’t workin’, expect the third verse is probably more direct than the intellect of a nerd flirtin’.

It’s that serious!

Verse 3:

This is not the norm, you’ve never heard a person talk about the inner workings of the spirit in the form.

This is just the calm before the storm; forget about a firearm, the five alarm, is coming you’ve been warned.

I overuse technology, spending all my time disseminating written prophecies.

Giving you the bizness shouts to Kuddie for the offering, conscious thoughts are wandering, to the hearts and minds of the listener who is pondering.

This verse deserves a category, let’s call it maturation music for all the growth that’s occurring as you’re clapping for me.

I never really thought that it would happen for me, turned my passion to profession, now I see what’s on the path before me.

I feel like Nas and Jay did before they captured glory, saw the ascension of I witness my after story!

That’s only half the story, just like that pastor’s story, deified than crucified just get a casket for me!

It's That Serious!
Track Name: Extra-Terrestrial Thoughts (Prod. By Kuddie Fresh)
VERSE 1:
Welcome visitor I know we haven’t formally, been introduced face to face but maybe formerly

Hope you understand the difference between war and peace, ignore the example of my species in the scorching heat

Of the warring east, It’s so unappealing to the eye of the beholder sort of like a forgery

Now I see that we can dialogue, here’s a cell phone to call home if you need to get your dial on.

I got air time and minutes are on roll over. Plus I noticed that your vehicle hasn’t flown over

That’s ok you’re amongst the understanding that this is not the first case of an accidental landing.

Since we’re expanding at accelerated rates may I ask a couple questions that could benefit the race?

Are there other planets out there with people 9 to 5iving, or killing other people cause they’re texting while they’re driving?

If there is then I guess you’ve seen it all, unless you’ve witnessed the consumerism at the local mall

Have you witnessed other beings at the precipice of change, who could rise to higher levels if they suddenly became

Aware of their power and were no longer afraid of everything received thru the antenna on their brain.

Was it you who built the pyramids I mean you're kinda small but I guess I shouldn’t judge solely by appearances (24)


Hook:
Hello. Tell me do you know, if our species can grow, beyond the status quo.

Yeah...

And although, you’re extra-terrestrial, we have much to show, and you’re so far from home.


VERSE 2:
Did you visit the Atlanteans and help them with the plans, to build the crystal cities before the water overran

Are there 24 hour news cycles that only show the negative, is there politics and prejudice?

Are there traumatized veterans, addicted to the sedatives, prescribed to make them forget what the primary directive is?

Is there religion or a spiritual perception amongst the people of your planet looking for connection?

Or looking for direction, either one I’m sure there someone in the power structure focused on deception.

Or diseases in the population, affecting kids who copulating,before they’re old enough to even hold an occupation?

Is there music that could sooth a savage soul? Are the women beautiful? Are there strippers on the pole?

Strike the last thought, you weren’t supposed to hear that, I fear that I’m asking all the questions it appears that

You haven’t said a word, I’m really not to sure if you understand my language as you quietly observe

Could you offer me a signal that would show you comprehend, if you don’t that’s ok there's no need to pretend

Then he spoke in a dialect that wasn’t of this planet, adjust a device than and I began to understand it

“You’re questions prove there is intelligence on earth, continue on your journey ‘til your energy’s dispersed.”

Hook:
Hello. Tell me do you know, if our species can grow, beyond the status quo.

And although, you’re extra-terrestrial, we have much to show, and you’re so far from home.

(Repeat)
Track Name: Illumination (Prod. By StepChild)
It’s gonna be a whole lot of nervousness, word to the impervious verbally I’m worthy here’s my lyrics at your services.

I’m trying to get you off the streets like a journalist, a self proclaimed forever optimistic nerd eternalist.

This version’s for the murderers of dreamers like the ones that Lennon sung about before the nerve of someone merciless.

Pulled the trigger you should get set go, to the exit if you expect doe, its probably best you know

That revenue's forever new, reserved for those who know one knows they say it’s only meant for a selected few.

That’s a subjective view, of things that we could never prove without the info we receive while we’re connected to.

I suggest that you understand it’s called the net cause they can catch you with a lie when you expect the truth.

I expect this booth to be surrounded by collective forces of nature that’s greater than a vest that’s proof.

Bullet, that’s backwards and means that my attackers would have to use something massive kill a master.

Facing a journey of immeasurable odds, rejecting religions with several different devils and gods.

How could we reach perfection? When in the reverends garage is a vehicle that cost more than several jobs

Could pay for at the level of a high school diploma not knockin’ what you do but please awaken from the coma

That you’re living in we live again and after that it’s possible that anything you didn’t learn from you’ll be revisiting.

Make your revisions man, fix the past mistakes you simply make because of a serious lack of discipline.

This is my wish again in this condition we would rather build than destroy in this physical existence when

The lights are flickerin, while I’m back and forthin’ with a brotha talkin’ bout if Love can save the kids within

His community, If you and me should question if it’s love, I don’t know what could save em’ accept immunity

From the epidemic flu disease that was manufactured by the by-products coming from the food we eat.

If it isn’t love, than you can’t stand the rain, this is a new edition of my expanded flame.

I only accept authentic, you should demand the same, I hope it isn’t rented just to give a your brand a name.

This is my opus of visionary focus, the hope that Jesse fought to keep alive before they put his indiscretions in the open.

Assassination doesn’t always happen through a scope if you provoke em’

I am the superhero meant to protect and serve the balance of the universe by using a protected word.

A dialect that a guy would get at the ground floor of the temple looking up at seven winding steps.

Rick & Jay can make a song called Free Mason, but please don’t be the victim of the idle speculation.

Without due trial or a strict examination then you’ll never know until you meet them on the open face of

A square but who cares, cause it’s only drawing numbers up. The craft carries heavy wood, don’t get your lumber cut.

Now aren’t you interested in something consistently talked about by witnesses but none who've ever been within

They say the one who says is the one who doesn’t know, they say one who knows would never say or never show

You get the point I’m trying to make so as the legend goes that he who passes by the Sphinx must do so while he stands alone.
Track Name: I Want You (Prod. By Configa)
Verse 1
I want this to be clear; I want the world to listen close like I’m whispering here.

Come close come close won’t you pull up a chair? Better yet take a stand let me know if you there.

I want you to feel the heat from the energy, the pressure and the pain, the truth in the memory I struggle to retain.

I try to refrain, but denying acclaim is like, separating particles of fire from a flame.

My desire and aim to inspire a change, supercedes any needs of arriving at fame.

But I’m trying to remain, ‘cause discipline is easy to achieve though it seems it is hard to maintain.

I’ve lost and regained, the cost that I’m paying, is more than I can afford to offer again!

I know that everybody has a cross to bear so it’s hard complain guess I’m talking in vain,

Chorus:

I want you
to wake up,
I want you,
But it’s something you just won’t do.
Something you just won’t do,
If I can so can you.

(Repeat)

Verse 2:
I’m addicted to the pull and the push; they say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

I want you to reflect, think beyond reality for a sec and just be without an underlying need to project.

I want you to forget, whatever you would regret, because you never make mistakes if you learn to accept.

That right or wrong is a concept that’s totally subjective, either one is subject to a persons perspective.

The positive and negative, don’t require proof, they apply to everything, that is universal truth.

I want you to be an agent of change, and not actively participate in staying the same.

Recognize that television only wants you to buy, turn it off and suddenly impulsive urges will die!

I just want you to consider my plea, and come out of autopilot if you’re flying asleep.

Chorus:

I want you
to wake up,
I want you,
But it’s something you just won’t do.
Something you just won’t do,
If I can so can you.

Verse 3:
The truth in the music is designed to bend hearts; I’m giving you the memoirs that powerful men guard.

What would happen if you opted not to vote, unblocked your throat and softly spoke, you’d rock the boat!

Division & religion is a popular theme, come together now and this is how to stop the machine.

I want you to remember your voice; you’ve got air and opportunity and power of choice.

I want you to maximize every chance you get, set sail and command the ship, demand more and advance the script,

Or be silent if you can’t commit, expand the grip eventually the hand will slip.

Use the wisdom that was given to us, embrace the opposition and then come from a position of love.

The truth is eclipsing the vision above, listen to what the wise ones are whispering of.

Chorus:

I want you
to wake up,
I want you,
But it’s something you just won’t do.
Something you just won’t do,
If I can so can you.
(Repeat)
Track Name: Life Love & The Pursuit (Prod. By Shawn Kyle)
I live my life with no regrets; I’d give my life to not forget
The beauty that love has shown to me, the person that I have grown to be

There is no time to look behind, the clock does not move in rewind
Open your heart and tune to mine; I’ll lead you to a love sublime

We’ll take a trip around the stars, just past the moon and after Mars
Beyond the sight of modern man, we will if only you think we can

There you will have no use for words, no limits on light nothing’s absurd
Picture you and me in the shine, of radiant beauty that is divine,

We’ve made our mark on the planet earth, let’s start all over as we re-birth
Return from whence we all have came, then dance around the astral plane

Hook:

We just want to live, love and fly, fulfilling all the dreams in our minds
We are meant to grow and be free, if you want to go, come with me.


Verse 2

This is the vision of every revolutionary, growth and expansion is simply evolutionary

Timing is everything but I don’t believe in a watch, my body knows the time so I haven’t needed a clock.

There is no wrong or right there’s only resistance to growth, this is Egyptian wisdom learned from a vision Thoth

I don’t expect you all to follow my every word, but those who listen with their spirit undoubtedly heard

Scientists overuse the physical faculties why, because they don’t belief there’s anything after you die

Energy never ceases, it only changes in form, most would agree we had a spirit before we were born

So if that’s true then the logic should lead you to find, that we have been existing even preceding this time

Living is loving and loving provides you the key, to open up the door to where you can truly be free.

Hook:

We just want to live, love and fly, fulfilling all the dreams in our minds
We are meant to grow and be free, if you want to go, come with me.


Verse 3

You are the key to all the mysteries within your self
Live consciously, begin to see that you are living wealth

We all will die some day but only in the physical
There is more magic in your mind than any digital

Take pictures with a memory in this experience
Meet other people, laugh and sing, don’t be so serious

Have faith like all the children do before conditioning
Open your eyes and close your mouth and begin listening

Travel the world and see the sights that bring you happiness
Extend your hand unto a stranger, become passionate

About the precious gifts that only we can truly know
When we appreciate and begin to embrace the flow


Hook:

We just want to live, love and fly, fulfilling all the dreams in our minds
We are meant to grow and be free, if you want to go, come with me.

We just want to live, love and fly, fulfilling all the dreams in our minds
We are meant to grow and be free, if you want to go, come with me.

Track Name: The Heart Of The Beholder (Prod. By Kuddie Fresh)
Intro:

They say that, to find love from without, you must first find love from within.

So here’s a little story about a her and a him who were looking for love, but couldn’t find it until they stopped looking externally.

Verse 1:

She works a 9-9, she never finds the time, to attract a man to take her out and wine and dine.

She’s college educated, she uses her degree, her mind is elevated, but her nights are usually.

Spent in front of a computer screen, watching romantic movie scenes of people finding fairytale love, like you do in dreams.

She doesn’t understand it, she thought she’d find the one by now, this isn’t how she planned it, her search is now expanding.

She goes to yoga classes, and learns of meditation, focused breathing techniques, rethinks her motivation.

She calls her life coach and right after the conversation, she finally sees that she’s been looking in the wrong location.

Calls in a reservation at her favorite restaurant, lays out a classy dress, something to feature flaunt.

She doesn’t have a date, but has a focused thought, that she’ll attract the one, then her attentions caught!

Chorus:

If true love is what you want, then start by loving yourself at once.

Inside is where the search begins, to find it in the world it must reside within.

It doesn’t matter what you’ve been told, inner beauty is truly worth more than gold.

Love attracts love you can see this too, but that depends on the lens that you’re seeing through.

It’s the heart of the beholder,
Love is in the heart of the beholder
It’s in the heart of the beholder
Love is in the heart of the beholder

Verse 2:

A perfect gentleman, he stays away from scandal, he’s got a son to raise and wants to set a good example.

Being a single father hasn’t been the easiest; he doesn’t make the kind of money a degree would get.

So he goes to night school just to get the paperwork; he has no time for distraction, he’s got to make it work.

Psalm 37:7 is his favorite verse, one day at church he wrote it down and put the paper in his favorite shirt.

He often prayed and asked God to send a good woman, intelligent and kind hearted, maybe good looking?

He missed companionship; deep down he longed to feel the warmth of a lovers touch at dinner with the candles lit.

Since his wife passed, he hadn’t dated much, it took a little time but now his heart is waking up.

He calls a sitter, after that puts on his favorite tux, goes to his favorite restaurant, to meet with lady luck.

Chorus:

If true love is what you want, then start by loving yourself at once.

Inside is where the search begins, to find it in the world it must reside within.

It doesn’t matter what you’ve been told, inner beauty is truly worth more than gold.

Love attracts love you can see this too, but that depends on the lens that you’re seeing through.

It’s the heart of the beholder,
Love is in the heart of the beholder
It’s in the heart of the beholder
Love is in the heart of the beholder

Verse 3:

She’s sitting patiently, her heart begins to race, she checks her make up in the mirror just to play it safe.

She sees a gentleman across from her who’s nicely dressed, he doesn’t seem to have a date from what she could assess.

He see’s the woman looking at him as he waits for service, he responds with a smile, although he’s feeling nervous.

The dress she’s wearing lets him know that she is fully-grown. She doesn’t have a wedding ring could she be here alone.

He takes a chance and offers her a subtle compliment, his nerves had settled now he felt a sudden confidence.

She asked him over, he accepted and they talked a bit, chatted for hours never feeling any awkwardness.

Restaurant’s closing down he asked her if she’d walk with him, the night is young and so are they her hand is what she offered him.

Under the night sky, they began to slow dance. This is their new beginning, welcome to romance.

Chorus:
If true love is what you want, then start by loving yourself at once.

Inside is where the search begins, to find it in the world it must reside within.

It doesn’t matter what you’ve been told, inner beauty is truly worth more than gold.

Love attracts love you can see this too, but that depends on the lens that you’re seeing through.

It’s the heart of the beholder,
Love is in the heart of the beholder
It’s in the heart of the beholder
Love is in the heart of the beholder
Track Name: Travelers Story (Prod. By Amir Swain)
Verse 1
They say you never know your greatness until your faced with a situation that requires higher elevation.

I’m patient, I’ve waited, I’ve sat up in my bedroom after concentrated contemplation.

I’ve seen it come to pass, when the things that you ask for show up clear as ever in your path.

I’ve laughed at the idea of being in the industry that’s interesting cause I’m getting offers rather relentlessly.

I only seek to spread a message; the fact is my actions are aligned with the purest of intentions.

I’m an educator, not an entertainer or an edu-tainer, I need no containers, can’t say it any plainer.

I live outside the box, but they call me crazy cause my style is so unorthodox.

I know my inner being; the flow of energy is so electric at this very moment as I’m presently.

Hook:

I travel down the path, living a life of balance, learn to subdue my passions, honor the code of silence,

My mind has been enlightened; won’t struggle to embrace it, I'm obligated to spread light to those in dark places.

Verse 2:

Modern day Martin Luther, King of the visionaries, bringin’ the wisdom buried with Egyptian missionaries.

Enter on perfect points, I’ve lead a certain few, to the promised land to find their hidden inner truth.

But I am just a man; living deliberately, master my lower self, embracing inner peace.

I only offer balance, which is the mystery; cause positive and negative have battled throughout history.

Doesn’t make sense to me, how people with the gift of life take it for granted by wasting precious energy.

Fame and riches chasing, names with different faces, the same will need replacements when the master’s seat is vacant.

Now I’m achieving greatness every time I read the statements of those affected by the music that I’ making.

I feel like Cassius Clay did when he changed his name and represented all the hopes and dreams of people in the nation.

Hook:

I travel down the path, living a life of balance, learn to subdue my passions, honor the code of silence,

My mind has been enlightened; won’t struggle to embrace it, I'm obligated to spread light to those in dark places.

Verse 3:

Sailing the 7 seas, crossing the burning sands, using the heart, which is the balance between head and hands.

Some say the heart is wicked, I say the heart is true, it sends the signals of emotion to another part of you.

Which is the intellect, that’s where the wisdom gets to process what is taking place while acting as the final check.

Before a step is taken, you have an opportunity to think about the implications of the choice you’re making.

I live beyond the limits, it is to be expected, that in the face of truth, gimmicks are re-directed.

I want the world to get it, but who am I to want for someone else when they don’t want for self I’m learning to accept it.

Learned to subdue your passions in hopes to gain control, of the things that could potentially control a sacred soul.

I know I’m getting close, but I’m unsure of where, following my inner guidance system until I am there!

Hook:
I travel down the path, living a life of balance, learn to subdue my passions, honor the code of silence,

My mind has been enlightened; won’t struggle to embrace it, I'm obligated to spread light to those in dark places.

Verse: 1
Stop and listen, look and learn! Ask a question, wait your turn.

Mind is frozen, eyes will burn
Mine is open, time will turn.

Words are weapons, speak and live
Silence or freedom, eat and give.

Debate and rhetoric, vote for thought
Ballot irrelevant, hopes are bought.

Candy for babies, poison the growing,
Educated ignorance, lies to the knowing.

Hideous beauty, exterior enhanced
Intellect exquisite, designed to entrance.

Chorus:

Words and music, words and music.
Captivated audience, by words and music.

Blind observance, Deserved illusion
Invisible and obvious words & Music.

Words & Music, words and music.
Truthful deception, words and music.

Trapped in public, Hearing is muted
Words and music, words & music.

Verse 2:

Early adopters, deferred investors.
Cancer from doctors, prescription injectors.

Food in excess, nutrition is scarce,
Schools or prison’s, who’s funding is fare?

Healthy or happy, balance is missing
Aware or awakened, concept is clicking.

Connection is constant, media social
Programmer or programmed, information mogul.

Domestic approaches, foreigners and locals
I’m opening the vocal and now I want to know who noticed where I drove you?

Did you realize that I have led you down a path that should subtly provoke you?

Chorus:

Words and music, words and music.
Captivated audience, by words and music.

Blind observance, deserved illusion
Invisible obvious words & Music.

Words & Music, words and music.
Truthful deception, words and music.

Trapped in public, Hearing is muted
Words and music, words & music.

Verse 3:

No need to fight, decide to improve.
Action or rhetoric, decline or choose?

Power’s within, claim it or serve,
Change will occur, hearts will observe.

I am a nerd, trying to preserve.
Artistic expression of rhyming the words.

The music is mirror, reflect or refract
Add to the culture, supply or retract.

Learning is sacred, truth is a constant.
Change is a given, growth is an option.

Mind over matter, thoughts are keys.
Doors will open, unlocked with ease.

Verse:

Thank you for tuning in, I do appreciate it. You’ve helped me conquer hate, no better yet eliminate it.

Maybe that’s far fetched we won’t eliminate it, but we have shown the world, that we’re not intimidated.

We’ve gone through ups and downs, we’ve seen the best and worst. We’ve proved if nothing else that music with a message works.

Now you’re accountable for what you all have heard, go forth into the world, and leave no stone unturned.

Continue on your path, endeavor now to be, the example of the change in others that you wish to see.

That is the 3rd Degree, I hope you’ve all enjoyed, the fruits of all my labors, that my love employs.

I love without condition, I trust you’ll do the same, you might be apprehensive, in time your minds will change.

Don’t need a follower, I need an advocate, not crazy like a fan could get, but every bit as passionate.

See what I’m asking is, go tell your inner circle, won’t tell you what to say, cause that would need rehearsal.

But tell them honestly, that this was so refreshing, it’s unlike anything you’ve heard before without a question.

Tell them your favorite song, give them a couple bars, thell them it’s heaven sent, then point them to the stars.

This is mature music, turn it up when in your cars, this music isn’t mine, I’d like to call it ours.

Thank you for listening and giving me your energy. Next time you think of light, hope you remember me!
