CASE STUDY 01 Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

ENTROPY

I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita
Vishnu was trying to persuade the prince that, he should do his duty
And, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form, and says
"Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds"

Oh, how can this be? I finally found peace
Just how long 'til she strip for me?
So come on, baby, in time we'll all freeze
Ain't no stoppin' that entropy

Am I just a dog whose found me a bone
Or perhaps have I found a home?
Been sniffin' around all over the town
I just can't stop settlin' down

His eye's on the sparrow, eyes is on me
More eyes than the KGB
Sometimes I suffer, sometimes I bleed
Not all at once, time flows linearly
Only forwards, never backwards
Seek the darkness, seek the laughter
Raise my jersey to the rafters
Let moths consume me in the light

Oh, how can this be? I finally found peace
Just how long 'til she strip for me?
So come on, baby, in time we'll all freeze
Ain't no stoppin' that entropy

So maybe my ego's out of control
Can that be avoided? I don't know?
I hated myself when I was a boy
Now that I don't, they tryna take my joy

His eye's on the sparrow, eyes is on me (Eye's on the sparrow)
More eyes than the KGB (KGB)
Sometimes I suffer, sometimes I bleed (Sometimes)
Not all at once, time flows linearly (Flows)
Only forwards, never backwards (Backwards)
Seek the darkness, seek the laughter (Laughter)
Raise my jersey to the rafters
Let moths consume me in the light

Oh, how can this be? I finally found peace
Just how long 'til she strip for me?
So come on, baby, in time alone, freeze
Ain't no stoppin' that entropy

Drifting towards the deep freeze
Thermodynamics, there's no escape
The good Lord he gives, the Lord he takes
No life without energy
Drifting towards the deep freeze
Thermodynamics, there's no escape
The good Lord he gives, the Lord he takes
No life without energy
Drifting towards the deep freeze

CYANIDE

I love dominantly
You make me weak, make me thirsty for release
Wan', come compliment me
Then become my enemy
Cop a flight to Paris, low key
It's you baby girl I'm trying to breed, please
Baby, try to understand me
I'm not a monster, I'm just a man with needs
I take flights when I learn it's time to go
Tryna take time back crossing timing zones
Come press your lips 'pon me
LSD got me feelin' empathy
Wan fi' alter the mind chemically
'Cause we suffer endlessly
Could be Kamikaze, only time will tell
Even though I'm godly, might end up in Hell

Sweet melody, wind up yuh body pon mi
Yuh lovin' baby girl, you know mi need it, need it
Let me fight for it, mi achieve it, 'chieve it
Sweet melody, wind up yuh body pon mi
Yuh lovin' baby girl, you know mi need it, need it
Let me fight for it, mi achieve it, 'chieve it

Feel my love drip over your skin
Rich dark chocolate, sweet melanin
Forevermore you gon' be my kin
Whatever Jah has binded, let no man enter in

You give me your love, it's unrequited
The thought of you gets me excited
I guess I'll come to your crib, uninvited
A few of your favorite vices, girl I know you like it
Girl, you came through like (Lightning)
You light up my life, you're like (Lightning)
Danny be good? That's (Unlikely, likely)
But Jah be comin' down, yeah
He turned my life around, yeah

Sweet melody, wind up yuh body 'pon mi
Yuh lovin' baby girl, you know mi need it, need it
Let me fight for it, mi achieve it, 'chieve it
Sweet melody, wind up yuh body 'pon mi
Yuh lovin' baby girl, you know mi need it, need it
Let me fight for it, mi achieve it, 'chieve it

Feel my love drip over your skin
Rich dark chocolate, sweet melanin
Forevermore you gon' be my kin
Whatever Jah has binded, let no man enter in

LOVE AGAIN

I wake from my slumber
I wish I could call you up
Miss how you'd put your love on me
Boy, you've got my number
Wish I could feel your touch
Wish you could follow up on me

You never know when to chill
Always talk 'bout keep it real
Only til you've have your fill
Then you wanna cry ill will
Really thought you knew the deal, oh
Oh well, I guess that's what happens
When two fools be falling in love
Mixing some pain and some passion
Nothing is ever enough

If you can take my hand
I promise we'll find love again, love again, yeah, yeah
If you can take my hand
I promise we'll find love again, yeah, oh (I promise)
Ooh, yeah, ooh, yeah

You don't even say what's up
'Round your boys you act so tough
Like you've never been in love
If you don't quit acting up
Alone is where you're gon' end up, I promise
You may think that I'm crazy
You should ask around 'bout me
Put your trust in me, baby
Ay, yeah

I wake from my slumber
I wish I could call you up
Miss how you'd put your love on me (Hey)
Boy you've got my number
Wish I could feel your touch
Wish you could follow up on me

Hold on until the end
Hold on until you can't extend
I'll be clinging on to you
I'll be clinging on to you
And then we get again
All waiting around and then
Circle back around to you
Coming back around to you
I'm coming back around and
Even on your worst day
Love you in the worst way (Worst way)
Circling around for eternity
Going through the motions you're turning me, internally
Drifting on my own again
Reaching out to hold your hand
I want to be alone with you
Can I be alone with you? (Can I be alone with you?)
Can I be alone with you?

If you can take my hand
I promise we'll find love again, love again, oh
If you can take my hand
I promise we'll find love again
Ever

FRONTAL LOBE MUZIK

Yeah

You know how I feel
I'm in love with you still, yeah
It helps, but it kills
Your lovin', your lovin'
It hurts, it heals
It breaks but it builds, ooh, yeah
Your power and your will
Your lovin', that's your lovin'

Wanna feel something I can feel
I know the things that I been feelin', they ain't real
Wanted to know what it felt like for them to like me
Now I know, I gotta say, it's mighty frightening
Wanna use it, use my frontal lobe
But these feelings took this shit around the globe
God, I'm sick and tired of always feelin' lonely
Got this Golden Child shit poppin' with my homies
It's a hell of a feeling, I put this thing on the map
Remember back in the day you talked a whole lot of smack
It was hard for the black kid, you used to get at my gap
Used to steal all my groceries and now I get to the racks
Used to be ugly, but now I hit from the back
The side, from the front, and I swear this pussy like crack
Nigga got rhythm, I like to hear that shit clap
I like to hear that shit back
I like to hear that shit

Further from home, the unknown, is all that I know
Couldn't atone on the phone
I wish that I would be on my own, all alone
I wish that I would quit bein' stoned, be a stone
I wish that I would-
I wish that I would just be a man when I can
I wish you had the vision to follow the plan
I wish I had a reason to see you again

You know how I feel
I'm in love with you still, yeah
It helps, but it kills
Your lovin', your lovin'
It hurts, it heals
It breaks but it builds, ooh, yeah
Your power and your will
Your lovin', that's your lovin'

Wanna feel it, something I can feel
I know the things that I been feelin', they ain't real
Look, my whole life they been beggin' me to chill
Got it weighin' on my conscience just a lil'
I wanna venture into the unknown
Never got shit poppin' layin' 'round at home
Never got no pussy actin like a pussy
Let my nuts hang, God damn, look where that shit took me

Never keep it inside
Never keep it inside (ay)
Let it out so everybody around you know what it feels like (yeah)
Never keep it inside
Never keep it inside (ay)
Let it out so everybody around you know what it feels like (Yeah)
Ooh
Ah, ah, ah, ah, eh, eh, eh

OPEN UP

It's been such a long time
Since I set foot in the club
I really hate this shit, don't I?
I hate feeling rushed, girl, can I just be honest?
I don't feel like talkin' unless it's 'bout me, or philosophy
Can we just get down to business?
And when we're both finished, then we'll have a reason to speak

Then you can open up to me, girl
Let me plant my seed, girl
Let me fill your needs, girl
Open up to me, open up to me

The piano that I f*ck you on
Same one that on which I write these songs for you
They're one in the same
That goes for us, too, I'd give you my name
The bed on which I lay to sleep
And lay with you and lay in deep
There ain't no difference, this case there isn't
That goes for us, too, I know you're listenin'
Sometimes it feels like I don't really care
One day you'll see, but in the meantime
Just trust that I'm there
Just trust that I love you
Just trust that I care
Trust that I need you to always be there
Trust that you know me well enough to know
I'm the high priest but you put on the show

Then you can open up to me, girl
Let me plant my seed, girl
Let me fill your needs, girl
Open up to me, open up to me

RESTORE THE FEELING

See, I can write down what I see
I'm hanging by the thread of my misery
Been feeling like there's nothing out there for me
Still waiting on a feeling got away from me

I'm trying to restore the feeling
God damn wouldn't it be nice?
You know that my mind is willing
Can't seem to get this right
I'm trying to restore the feeling
God damn wouldn't it be nice?
You know that my mind is willing
I just got to get my body right
Won't you sing it now?
Eh eh eh, eh, eh eh eh, eh

Right now I can't seem
To fight the feeling, demons here waiting on me
I'm hanging by my pride, my energy
Is draining slowly, please don't cry, shorty
Ay, miss me with that "How you been, how you doing?"
And parents talking fluent, like they know my influence
Took a lot of talent to make thousands out of toonies
But that's exactly what I'm doing
I got Danny Caesar calling
I'm peeling back Backwoods, I guess I'm back to work
Make a mill' off a classic verse
Will I make a mill' or a classic first?
(I'm feeling)

I'm trying to restore the feeling (Oh oh)
God damn, wouldn't it be nice? (Oh oh oh oh)
You know that my mind is willing (Oh oh)
Can't seem to get this right (Oh oh oh oh)
I'm trying to restore the feeling (Oh oh)
God damn, wouldn't it be nice? (Oh oh oh- h)
You know that my mind is willing (Oh oh)
I just got to get my body right (Oh oh oh oh)
Go restore that feeling

Restore, feel
Oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Mind is willing
Oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Go restore that feeling
Feeling, feel, I can't feel it
Oh oh, oh oh oh oh
Go restore that feeling

SUPERPOSITION

Isn't it an irony?
The things that inspire me
They make me bleed
So profusely
I got everything I need
Time and space to think and breathe
What does it mean
When cash grows on trees?

Exist in superposition
Life's all about contradiction
Yin and yang
Fluidity and things
I'm me, I'm God
I'm everything
I'm my own reason why I sing
And so are you, are you understanding?

Whoa

I know you think this shit is easy
For you, but not so much for me
But I'll still ride, that's just the risk I'll take
I know you see me actin' sleazy
I'm working on it, take it easy
I'll figure it all out before I break
If I should die before I wake
Oh, please, do not resuscitate
I know I didn't live my life in vain
This music shit's a piece of cake
The rest of my life's in a state of chaos
But I know I'll be okay

Exist in superposition
Life's all about contradiction
Yin and yang
Fluidity, and things
I'm me, I'm God
I'm everything
I'm my own reason why I sing
And so are you, are you understanding?

TOO DEEP TO TURN BACK

Ooh, ooh
Hey, hey

So what's the price?
We're like mosquitoes to light, in a sense
I feed off bio luminescence
Love and intent
So it's a quick fix
What else does life have to give but the pain
Generated inside our own brains?
It's a sick game, yeah

Submit to me, come get down on one knee
I'm your savior and I'll give you everything that you need
(That you need)
Submit to me, come get down on one knee
I'm your savior and I'll give you everything that you need

Blaspheming the spirit
I just don't want to hear it, too deep
What I've sown I'll continue to reap
I'll earn my keep
It was all good intentions
Did I forget to mention? My God
Just tryna get money with my dogs
Is that so wrong?

Submit to me, come get down on one knee
I'm your savior and I'll give you everything that you need
(That you need)
Submit to me, come get down on one knee
I'm your savior and I'll give you everything that you need

Lately you been on a wave
Seen you lit up in the place
Sometimes you're sad, I see it on your face
I can tell you're not okay
I know you're only seeking out the beauty
In fulfilling your duty
The answers it seems
Are inside your own dreams

Good God, Jehovah, what's this I see?
My mortality's staring back at me
Niggas think I'm scared
Niggas think I'm a bitch
But I ain't come prepared and I ain't know what this is
I've slept like Jacob, a rock for a pillow
Run swift like Elijah, away from the middle
Seen the world, overindulged maybe a little
But now your boy's up, and I'm fit as a fiddle
Oh Lord, Jehovah, what's this I see?
Bourgeoisie tryna silence me
They don't know what I've been through
Don't know what I pree'd
Seeing shit that you see up in your TV screen
Follow me to salvation
Your mind still 'pon plantations
The shepherd, holds information
It gives it out as its taken
Yeah, yeah

COMPLEXITIES

Now that I know, what I know
There's nothing new under the moon
Spent many nights on you
Oh I, oh I

I don't give a damn 'cause it don't make a difference
I can't get mad 'cause I know I went missin'
Cupid takes aim and put holes in ambition
Can't go back home 'til I finish the mission

Now that I know (now, now), what I know (What I)
There's nothing new (nothing), under the moon (oh, no)
Spent many nights (many), on you (on you)
Oh I (oh, oh), oh I (oh, oh)

Complexities, come get with me
In spite of these complexities
Complexities, come get with me
In spite of these complexities

ARE YOU OK?

Are you okay?
Been starin' at your face
From across the room now
You seem out of place

It's a new day
The people know your name
They smile when they see you
So why the long face?
Oh, oh

Back on my shit, my bullshit that is
It feels so good to hold you in my arms
We both know it's wrong
(You want me in your arms)
I sing these songs, it's therapy
You need me to see right through you
Like you see through me

Me and my niggas gettin' paper
Highly blessed and highly favored
We ain't askin' for no favors
We in Cali smokin' hella flavors
Me and my niggas gettin' paper
Highly blessed and highly favored
We ain't askin' for no favors
We in Cali smokin' hella flavors

Chef boy, y'all see
So cookin' up trouble like, "Woe is me"
This shit ain't easy
I know I piss my girl off but, oh, Heavens, why'd she leave me? Why'd she leave me?
Chef boy, y'all see
So cookin' up trouble like, "Woe is me"
This shit ain't easy
I know I piss my girl off but, oh, Heavens, why'd she leave me?

I watch the snow melt slowly day-by-day
Three nights passed it all melted away
I know it will return and while things may have changed
It's essence stays the same, all things always

Can't believe, please don't be my enemy
You were such a friend to me
I'm sorry for my energy
I'm sorry for my rest assured
Today I won't be insecure
You deserve the world and more
Next time I knock at your door
Next time I knock
