Jubilee | Lyrics

It’s that special time of year

We should gather with each other despite our fears

We’ll break bread and dine with wine

And discover there’s no trouble and we’re just fine

We are all of the same blood

So it’s silly to throw punches instead of hugs

Peace is not (just) for the naive

We should be wearing our compassion upon our sleeves

So let’s celebrate today

And be grateful that we all have a voice to say

That we’re thankful for our lives

And we’re laughing, dancing, singing and giving high fives

Menace | Lyrics

So many voices

In my head

Got me tightly wound

I’m the villain

In your nightmares

I will take you down


What if I can get to you

What if I could just kill you

What if I can get to you

What if I could just kill you


I should take my meds

But I don’t won’t to

See this gun I’ve found

I’m the menace

To your society

I will break this town


What if I can get to you

What if I could just kill you

What if I can get to you

What if I could just kill you


It’s good to see you

It’s nice to meet you

But I will cheat you

And I’ll defeat you

They won’t find out

Cuz I will hide out

There’s no penance

Cuz I’m a menace


Written in the summer of 2015 for performance as Neglect the Alarm.

The Mission | Lyrics

Calm the savage beast with my music so smooth

I initiate the groove to make your body move

You can feel it all inside you as it reaches your core

Get up off your back and put your feet to the floor

Like a moth to a flame, you can feel the burn

The rhythm will confront you at your every turn


Like a beacon in the dark to lead you through the night

You can swim these tranquil waters ‘cause you know it’s all right

We’re one nation under a groove, these are times to heal

You know my word is bond ‘cause my name is For Real

Life is not as bad or as good as it seems

But we should never give up on our positive dreams


I’m not comin’ at’chu with elaborate schemes

I just wanna rock your body ‘til it’s ripping the seams

We’ve got no precious time for ridiculous schisms

We’re people on a mission for the ill-est of rhythms

Don’t take this all lightly ‘cause the message is serious

I don’t suffer fools ‘cause they get me all furious


You know you can’t stop the sensation

It’s time to unite this lost nation

There’s only one simple thing we can do


Don’t think I’m naïve ‘cause my mission is lofty

I be makin’ music like others be makin’ coffee

But I try not to scrap ‘cause I’m a wannabe pacifist

Don’t come at me with that noise ‘cause I’m just not havin’ it

I bring you this message only ‘cause it’s so real

Think about it deep and know my name is For Real


Written between 4/28/09 – 5/7/09. Released sometime in 2009.

Building Burning Bridges | Lyrics

We never thought that things could breakdown this way

We never knew that we could be led astray

Back then we could not see all the ties that bind

But now we know that we must cherish our time

TOGETHER

TOGETHER


The bitterness can cause a rift

As time goes on we start to drift

We think we’re free to break away

But memories don’t always fade

We were destined to be friends

This bond is strong it never ends


In building bridges that we’ll burn

It seems to be we’ll never learn

To treasure the friendships that we’ve earned

Yet we walk away with no concerns

We were destined to be friends

This bond is strong it never ends


We’re building burning bridges

Bridges falling down

Our burning bridge is falling

Falling but we’re bound

We’re building burning bridges

Bridges falling down

We’re burning bridges we built

But we can reconcile


Sometimes it takes a while to find

The truth in life, so we rewind

To see where we had made mistakes

Where things went wrong and changed our fate

But we were destined to be friends

This bond is strong it never ends
