The Life 05:04
THE LIFE If I never make it to heaven. I’ll ask the devil what’s in store for me I hope my time on earth has paid its price It’s hot down here Say I want to go home I want to leave this place These walls are talking to me These scars are healing from you I’ve climbed the mountain just to fall down I’ve sailed the seven seas just to turn back around When the sun sets across the sand. The stars come out at night My thoughts of you take flight across the sky As it withers into the wind as it blows Take me away from this hellhole. Let me fly like an eagle 2x Wash my hands, wash my hands of sin Death came to me in my dreams. Days were long, hours go as time passes by Let’s talk about love Mama Let’s talk about drugs Mama Let’s talk about pain Mama Let’s talk about our strain Mama These marks on my arm Were then not now For I have found what I was looking for 2x
The Chase 06:50
THE CHASE Sometimes I feel Like the world is on my shoulders Sometimes I wonder If I’ll ever get out of this hole I know you love me But sometimes I just don’t know I’m trying to find peace within I’m running out of time 4x My grandmother told me the moon Turned blood orange The day I was born A rose Rose up out the concrete in Baltimore Bright lights in a big city Will drive your mind crazy Doubt in my mind when I roll into town Trying to break even I’m trying to find peace within I’m running out of time 4x Sometimes I feel Like the world is on my shoulders Sometimes I wonder If I’ll ever get out of this hole I know you love me But sometimes I just don’t know I’m trying to find peace within
ROUND ABOUT MIDNIGHT Early Saturday morning I’d rise like bread Visions of my dream Still dancing in my head The fall and the rise From day to the night In her eyes I saw the light Like a train 2x I say round about midnight Caught me by surprise On an empty road Guitar on my back I was coming home I say round about midnight Like a train 2x I say round about midnight She said honey I know You like to roam She said honey I know You like to roam But I’m glad your home You came back home to mama Like a train 2x I say round about midnight
NO ORDINARY LOVE Her river runs deep. So she sleeps on the streets Fulfills men’s fantasies Home of the brave. A country that’s free Feeds her insecurities She says I have nothing of my own but men who have their hold on me She says I have nothing to give but a love that is no longer my own This is no ordinary love 4x Young man Heart full of gold Wanders aimlessly around in the dark Brotherhood of the traveling pants That’s he’s worn since June He cries at night Praying to the Lord above To have mercy on him He wipes his face Goes on his way to find A place to stay This is no ordinary love 4x They cross paths and talk of each other’s lives He finds comfort in her eyes These are the tales of those who tales have not been told 2x This is no ordinary love 4x
Same O’l 2 Step It seemed like a good idea at the time, as I walked her to the floor She was the vision of a beauty queen with a figure so hard to ignore But the strangest thing unfolded in front of my eyes as we got into the groove She looked at me wrong every time I tried to lead Stepping on my toes with every move My better judgment failed me. I didn’t get out of her way Instead I leaned a little closer asked was everything ok Her head just hit my shoulder, I heard her start to cry Didn’t have to say a word, before she told my why She said "pain from my past have put doubts of my future with wounds too deep for doctors to suture. Making her a bad partner for this tour” My look in surprise saw the tears that fell from her eyes and knew she wasn't talking about the two-step no more You never know where your lessons come from So when get it, take that chance The pain could be the blessing in disguise But the hardest thing to learn is when to just say thank you for the dance Simple thoughts ran through his head at a pace too fast to understand The nurse told him "try not to move" as his friend squeezed the other hand The doctor's news had hit him hard like a brick upside the head. Cuz he knew that night he was lucky not to have ended up dead And all he could think was "How did it get to this? Lord, I'm gonna need a lot more time Cuz I know I’ve got many more songs to sing, and I wanna write the perfect line" You never know from where the next lesson’s coming from So when you get it, take that chance The pain maybe the blessing in disguise The hardest thing you learn is when to just say Thank you for the dance
Who Are You 03:56
WHO ARE YOU Jahiti He walked into the place she knew exactly what he wanted Jamaican white rum in a short glass On the rocks he always ordered His normal smile is gone and face is long He got pains on his heart You can read it on his face then the drinking starts Who are you(3) Najah It'd be easy just to leave him in his thoughts and with his drink But then again he needs a friend I've got an ear an open mind Empty bar nothing but time. Got my own special glass of wine and ask what's on his mind Ask what's on his mind Who are you (3x) What troubles you? Quinton “Q” Randall He walks the street to find food. Bare feet broken sandals Heart on his sleeve in the palm of his hand is his bible That he reads Shaken and disturbed, bruises on his eye Nightmare he left behind. Who are you (3x) Love The Poet I see you watchin' waitin...wonderin Who's this woman just walked in Saw you tap the table drinkin. Tonight I am your sin No tequila needed you taste me like I'm gin The bathroom stalls are crawling With creatures of the night I won't be yours tonight Who are you (3x)


The Cleanse describes my growth as an artist during the time I've been a musician. It talks about the trials and tribulations that I went through to get to my clean slate.
