Track Name: Over & Over
Verse 1 (5th & Wyatt)
HA HA I'm a riot right?/
The quiet type shining like in ultra violet light
Let the pilot light sorta like pyrotechnics/
A fire specialist when it comes to rhymin' sentences/
Adventurous, never thought I'd reach this high of heights/
Took a risk, never let a chance fly by/
Addictive, when I see the fans hands high/
Band in the backline causing all the dance vibes/
Right Right
I think I might fly/ we coming off the runway just the right size/
Surprise, you other suckas never thought I'd rise/
Tried holding me back, I severed all my ties/
Cry me a river is what they said/
Man, I could of stayed down but I got up instead/
Moving ahead full steam it seems I'll sleep when I'm dead/
Or until the whole world's love is evenly spread/
I keep trying

Chorus 1:
Over and Over x4
You gotta do what you gotta do/
When life tries to knock you down/
When life tries to knock you down/
When life tries to knock you down
Get up, they might try to knock you down/

Verse 2 (Wyatt)
On the up and up from the rock bottom/
Pardon me, as I rise from the rose garden/
Started as a seed then I parted from my peeps/
Kept following my heart but I found it hard to eat/
So I marched on my feet, how far can you reach?/
Yo, I guess I'll never know unless you spark up the beat/
I let me speak about this art that I'm preachin'/
The only form of freedom I can find like the weekend/
When the bills keep increasin' and the stress does too/
And kids keep seeing everything that I do/
And life keeps teachin' and I'm thinking about my moves/
It ain't about me no more, I gotta choose my path/
Do my math, add and subtract/
Yo, I gotta be the glue to keep the fam in tact/
See I could fuse my blues with new school rap/
But we won't do that, na we won't do that. We bounce back/


Chorus 2:
Over and Over x4
When life tries to knock you down, get up when life tries to knock you down/
When life tries to knock you down, get up when life tries to knock you down (you down)/
When life tries to knock you down, get up when life tries to knock you down/
When life tries to knock you down, get up they might try to knock you down/

Bridge:
You on point 5th, once again Wyatt/
You on point 5th, once again Wyatt/
You on point 5th, once again Wyatt/
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh S@#%/

Verse 3 (5th Sequence):
There were times I was strugglin' and knucklin' up/
I even gave my best effort, said enough is enough/
I put my life in my hands and leave nothin' to luck/
What I said when I spent my last couple of bucks/
I know I gotta be tough, they say the road is rough/
I need the people on my team to really know what's up/
Protect my head space, dead weight for sure gets cut/
Some days my parachute cord gets stuck/
That's Murphy's law brotha, of course it sucks/
True, I really could just alter my view/
But I still got this feeling in my heart, what to do/
Its up to YOU, to choose how you act and your mood/
I'm a do good candidate/
Action speaks louder than words, concerned advocate/
You are under brand new management/
And it gets better, it's no accident/
One of these puzzle pieces has to fit, I keep tryin'/

Chorus 3:
Over and Over x4
When life tries to knock you down, get up when life tries to knock you down/
When life tries to knock you down, get up when life tries to knock you down (you down)/
When life tries to knock you down, get up when life tries to knock you down/
When life tries to knock you down, get up they might try to knock you down/

Outro:
Over and Over x8

Randal - they might try to knock you down, they might try to knock you down (don't let em) - they might try to knock you down, for real, for real
Track Name: Why Oh Why
WHY OH WHY
I've been down, and been up
and still kept, my chin up/
when pinned up/
remained ninja /
even while injured /
I ventured /
outside of all approved paths/
/and grew past/
problems of the old world/
solved with-the-new-math /
addressing a few-bad, apples in the systems /
where victims of root causes get blamed for symptoms /
and people who comment, who don't know the difference /
distance themselves through their judgmental lenses /
ended some friendships /
met some new ones in the trenches /
with much more, compatible agendas /
she was sensing that my inner animal is centered /
thoughts for you, I paused ,a few, then sent em /
So what's your feelings on the cost of life? /
how you living when you're off the mic? /
the hero archetype/
with the heart to fight /
might not have the sharpest knife /
but my mom and pops taught me right /
so yo they got me like /
Why oh why oh why oh why

[Wyatt]
Does this life have to fly on by?

I swear, I was just a child/
unaware of trials/
I grew up, and grew thick skin/
they tried to file /
but I'm dialed in/ like sunshine, I know what time it is/
you can't blind a reflective mind, respect the grind I/
perfected the rhyme instead of electing crime/
cause they give corrective time instead of a second try/
so I /
believe in what you can't see with the naked eye/
to make it by/ otherwise I lay awake at night /
for the sake of mankind I can't just standby/
that's why/
me and 5th coordinate like hand eye/
and I been curbing my fears for nearly 30 years/
heated debates keepin the streets with burning ears yes!/
I express like 10 items or less/
I got a lot of questions on my quest/
I suggest heads stop dying from stress over who's rhyming the best/ and figure out who's designing this mess.
Ask yourself this!

Why oh why oh Why oh Why
Why oh why oh, why oh why oh,
Why oh why oh Why oh Why
Why oh why oh, why oh why oh
what why oh, why is it wild?
Why is it wild, why it is it wild?
Why is it wild, why it is it wild?

[bridge]
it's like we're all on trial /
gotta justify survival /
but still they look at me like I-owe them my soul / but I know /
that WECAN break the cycle/
take back our rightful titles/
so if you got that light inside you, don't be afraid to let it shine through / shine it through /
