Track Name: Fast Times At Mid Low High
“Fast Times At Low-Mid High”

(Verse 1)
Grasp the pen and push it past the mind
To unleash this rhyme out of the dirty kind
Not to be unkind but to uncreate crime
To shine in my time and illuminate the sign
So I scheme to dominate all my duty
Make it action packed like a Bruce Willis movie
Where the whole cast blasts phat gats
But not for me cause I need some naps
Nothings more aggravating than not getting your way
If not getting your way was a job I’d be paid
But it’s not so I just remain poor
And I go door to door and of course remain ignored
And I’m only soar when I’m thrown off property
Or I’m soar after they beat me properly
Probably something I wouldn’t put pride in
So I try my best to glide out while pushing tin
But sin constantly settles in the passenger seat
Sick and tired cause I continue to fight the beast
Yes I do I did and I will
And my will gets me by close enough to thrill

(Hook)
Fast times, fast times, fast times, fa-fast times
Fast times, fast times, fast times, fa-fast times
Fast times, fast times, fast times, fa-fast times
Fast times, fast times, fast times


(Verse 2)
Drill down deep and reap the benefits
Until it rips and slips right out of my grip
Up up and away past the blackest day
Say everything alright for the freshest array
Right this moment a monumental occasion
It’s okay to spend a lifetime seeking the son
That’s a quest for a reason since he freed us
So clean the dirt off your shell-toed addidas
Create a ruckus and ro-rock rock on
Till everything flies by and all else is gone
So I get it off my chest to put an end to the buck
Writing raps to get past a string of bad luck
Chuck the fuss like a hundred mile an hour heater
Whipping the rhythm like a hundred egg mix beater
Childlike to mature young to old
Time flies by to quick to capture and hold
So I put my voice on tracks remembered forever
With legends line by line letter by letter
All I need are some tasty waves a cool buzz and I’m fine
And if I’m here and you’re here isn’t it out time

(Hook)
Fast times, fast times, fast times, fa-fast times
Fast times, fast times, fast times, fa-fast times
Fast times, fast times, fast times, fa-fast times
Fast times, fast times, fast times
Track Name: Dead Man Talking
“Dead Man Talking”

(Verse 1)
Cells locked up chains bound up
Everything was wrong starting from the ground up
Turn the volume to the silence of the sound up
Reattaching cut strings becoming all wound up
I wont let those words pass my lips
That will admit to something that I possibly never did
But I rid the allegations of the highest bid
I can’t go back to before I stopped being a kid
So I search beyond a reasonable doubt
Why I’m here and can’t find my own way out
The night is dark I can’t break the lock
I can say a lot but nobody can hear my talk
Walking down a path leaves my words at a loss
Walking down a path unsure I’ll make it across
Walking down a path leaving my life lost
Walking down a path leading to the cross

(Hook) X2
I’m a dead man talking
I’m a dead man talking
I’m a dead man talking
I’m a dead man talking

(Verse 2)
I’m walking down a path I never thought I’d be lead
Trailed by a path of my blood poured red
And I dread the fact that its got me trembling
As I’m watching life’s puzzle disassembling
I’m speaking a message for anybody willing to hear
Talking a mile a minute I’ve spoken globally for year
The only one waiting is death I’ve got nothing to fear
My heart poured out I’ve got no fluid left for a tear
So you wont find me crying because of my position
Except when on the edge I implore you to listen
All I need is one person to sit by my bed
And hear the words I have left to be said
So here I am left with nothing to loose
But to accept my destiny the only choice but to choose
I admit the sentence and the pass of judgment
But I don’t look at execution as a form of punishment
As I listen to myself I realize my faults
That hiding from truth was a personal assault
Reality is something I can no longer deny
Heaven suffers violence and so do I
In order to live I have to die
In order to live I have to die
In order to live I have to die
I have to die

(Hook) X2
I’m a dead man talking
I’m a dead man talking
I’m a dead man talking
I’m a dead man talking

(Bridge)
I’m a dead man
I’m a dead man
I’m a dead man
I’m a dead man
Track Name: The Thin Blood Line
“The Blood Red Line”

(Bridge) X2
Cross the line
Cross the line
Cross the line
Cross the line

(Verse 1)
It’s a fine line between life and death
With blood spilled right and left
Mixed in all the sweat and tears
All held together the cries and fears
Men and women lashing out
Back and forth bout to bout
One person is wounded so they wound another
Victim to victim or lover to lover
So many people living in pain
They bring others down so they feel a gain
Every little bit evil cuts down in fractions
No more can I allow any distraction
My chance to speak out I wont be silent
All the wrong has awoken this sleeping giant
I’ll battle for the good with an unbridled passion
With justice in my hands I’m gonna take action

(Hook) X2
A thin line painted in blood
Dark skies have blurred the eyes
No distinction between hate and love
Call the sign cross the line

(Bridge)
Cross the line
Cross the line
Cross the line
Cross the line

(Verse 2)
It’s sad to see so many acts of violence
This world of fear set to silence
Speaking up still remains quiet
It’s normal they say so they buy it
People come home to slap around their kids
Blame them for something they never did
Kids forced to grow up in a world of mistrust
Broken down before they have a chance to grow up
There is even unborn life quick to be cut
The door to our future being slammed shut
I just want a chance for these seeds to flower
So with that I will offer over my power
The wickedness of this world I’m gonna wrestle
Fight for the most high as a righteous vessel
In the name of justice to wage war on evil
For all the defenseless to protect my people

(Hook)
A thin line painted in blood
Dark skies have blurred the eyes
No distinction between hate and love
Call the sign cross the line

(Bridge)
Cross the line
Cross the line
Cross the line
Cross the line
Track Name: MixBreak Part 1
“MixBreak Pt. 1”

The sky cracks open from shots I bust
Give me somebody to trust we both turn to dust
But trust I reverse like first eat the crust
She was the crown while I was found on the cusp
So let’s toast cups as we gather to feast
For Him who’s least but a might beast
Searching lurking hungry to eat
Dot end page now turn the sheet
Count up down side to side
However you total it there’s only one reply to ride
So step aside there’s no chance to hide
They’ll ensure you died when you tried to defy
Masculine ruth or feminine groups
Humanity’s let loose on absolute truth
Absolute vodka that party girl’s gotcha
Bought’cha brought’cha to this launch of a monsta
Renegade hitting these shots with a fade
Tossing grenades then I’ll pass out first aid
Deuces two fingers up out this peace
Free with a five-finger discount at least
Catch me if you can Tom Hanks
Snitches get stitches toothbrush shanks
Twenty-five to life with one shot at parole
This sniper’s locked on target one chance to go
Now I don’t got the cash flow to make it rain
But I’ll make it hale on ‘um coin star change
Heads up luck penny Abe Lincoln
Hey Blinkin Robin Hood Men In Tights trickin
All shouting “Leave us alone Mel Brooks”
Why don’t you go on home read some books
Here’s one Rapping For Idiots
Case Study I’ll show you how it really gets
Track Name: I Am Sean
“I Am Sean”

(Verse 1)
Five eight one hundred thirty pounds
Small frame with a big sound
Of Irish and Italian decent
Catholic Christian with sins to repent
Sean Edward Menegatti at birth
Named after my grandfathers from first
William John Kathleen Anne
Their third child became the plan
But every part of this basic process
Comes along with its share of crosses
Given a cross I alone can clutch
When we touch I remember it’s my crutch
This curse I bare a burden on my back
So many more colors than white and black
I have everything not aware of my needs
Possessions fill nothing cause my heart still bleeds
Spending so many hours off in my dreams
But the truth is different never as that seems
In a shimmer of light I see a glimmer of night
But as much as I try I just can’t escape
The screams of my heart never reach my lips
So I move into action but seldom see benefits
Seeking on my knees as my soul erupts
So I pray to God keep me up

(Verse 2)
The vale of nighttime descends to cover the sky
The realness of life is something I cannot deny
My words said are good but what lies in the unspoken
I hold them back cause I fear the results if I were open
Many times in my past there was a future I had to desert
And every time I look back the memories still hurt
But I tore apart my past to start brand new
With nothing built I don’t know what to do
There is a future so I should start to plan
But what happens when it comes down to I did what I can
As I stand there are things that still remain undone
Should I get up and run chasing down the sun
I don’t know I don’t know what it is
I sit around and imagine a world of bliss
I look in the eyes of fate yet see no reflection
With no ideas I’m left alone in my detection

(Bridge)
I’m just a man
I’m just Sean
Just spirit and flesh
What do I have left

(Verse 3) X2
It’s not it’s not it’s something else
It’s got to be the fear found in myself
Scared to be hurt scared to be hugged
Scared to be pushed away scared to be loved

Bridge)
I’m just a man
I’m just Sean
Just spirit and flesh
What do I have left
Track Name: Mystic Ocean
“Mystic Ocean”

(Verse 1)
The waves come crashing onto the shore
Beating the earth but what is it for
It’s not like this planet has done anything evil
Unlike the sins committed by all of her people
Or at least this man’s echoing mistakes
I should be gone going at this rate
And that’s all that I can think about
Watching the tide come in and out
The ocean is such a temperamental fiend
High and low ebb and flow ever-changing being
A rhythm that makes it understandable
But unpredictable to be treacherous and unmanable
So similar to the nature of me
The nature of man everything that I see
Freedom and slavery joy and tragedy
Often insignificant is all I can be

(Hook) X2
One drop of water in the entire ocean
One grain of sand across the shore
One shinning star up in the sky
One single person in all mankind

(Bridge)
One
One
One
One

(Verse 2)
He’s got the whole world in his hands
But not like those kid’s song man
Those childhood days are far long gone
What’s going on right now that’s what I’m on
Strife and suffering burning fire hot
Drop after drop of love it wont stop
But it’s not enough all that we got
Cause sometimes it feels like we didn’t do squat
Pain burning in to anger and hate
Spreading to destroy, not to create
Two steps forward and one step back
Sometimes even the opposite of that
Before things get better we’re making it worse
In need we have no choice but to converse
To plead to cry God save us
Drop into the ocean of mercy with trust

(Hook) X2
One drop of water in the entire ocean
One grain of sand across the shore
One shinning star up in the sky
One single person in all mankind

(Bridge)
One
One
One
One
Track Name: The Tree
“The Tree”

(Verse 1)
I knew a certain tree as I was growing up
Always easy to find when I was showing up
The tree stood tall during every single season
And I love that tree for way to many reasons
I would climb on the tree swing on it’s branches
It gave shade to keep cool and apples for lunches
Every single day the tree had something to offer
So I said give me give me as time passed longer
Soon I said tree give me all your wood
I’m gonna take it and use it good
So continues my life living away from the tree
Now a stump I lived off its blessings to me
And it took way to long to see its sacrifice
I was so blessed because the tree gave its life
Now I sit at the stump to reflect and rest
To become a blessing and give what I’ve been blest

(Hook)
Come to the tree relax and sit
Come to the water breath and sip
Garner grow gain the glow
At the tree of life
Come to the tree turn and give
Come to the sacrifice love and live
Renew refresh receive the bless
At the tree of life

(Bridge 1)
Come to the tree
Come to the tree
Come to the tree
Come and be free
Come to the tree
Come to the tree
Come to the tree
Come and be free

(Verse 2)
Come to the tree come look and see
I’m not perfect but that’s where you’ll find me
Old and young everybody come
Daughters and sons every single one
The tree is here for me and it’s here for you
To help us pull on through
Why not come by and receive
Don’t worry even if you don’t believe
At the tree of life all are embraced
The tree gives offering as a foretaste
I was blest so now I pay it forward
To speak a message that’s often unheard
Poorly spoken but mostly forgotten
So I’ll tell you now the gift that I’ve gotten
God loves me and God loves you
All he wants is to be with you
God loves you yes God loves you
All he wants is to be with you
God loves you God loves you
All he wants is you

(Hook)
Come to the tree relax and sit
Come to the water breath and sip
Garner grow gain the glow
At the tree of life
Come to the tree turn and give
Come to the sacrifice love and live
Renew refresh receive the bless
At the tree of life

(Bridge 2)
Come to the tree
Come to the tree
Come to the tree
Come and be free
Come to the tree
Come to the tree
Come to the tree
Come and be free
Come to the tree
Come to the tree
Come to the tree
Come and be free
Come to the tree
Come to the tree
Come to Jesus
Come he frees us
