Track Name: Intro
[PAVY'S GRANDMA SPEAKS]

[VERSE 1]
Look I was born in May 1991 Gemini
yeah my mom and daddy finally had a son, but paralyzed
how I momma starting all the drama
then my grandma chose to raise me off the convo that my momma
had the night before that's some Eire shit, she ain't feel legit
if I wasn't bought up like her daughter that's he daughters wish
then I started this crazy journey with schools
switched me every other year with hopes in one I'd be cool
and then I went to Luther south and became devout
to balling on these pussy niggas with the evil in they mouth
I used to sit up in the classroom spitting, wasn't telling no nigga my vision
except for Lotto and Ben because I couldn't began to give my motto the wind to feel they venom again
then it ended and I ventured on to college
and got kicked out before my fifth semester started
that's the knowledge a synopsis on the beginnings of me
and the rest of this is thoughts about who you currently see
(now hold on)
Track Name: Last Week
[VERSE 1]
Lacking motivation in my life
moving like its medication in the Sprite
moving like its no where to turn to
like what the hard work really earn you
couple blog post, couple retweets
same niggas clapping at ya shows every week
like I ain't really seen no progression
I done seen others get it now I'm stressing
now I'm fucking with some shit I shouldn't be
looking for a muse really draining all my energy
who I intend to be is not who I am
I wonder if it's meant for me to switch up the plan
like I was really tripping way back then
I to learn the difference between what's destined
and what you pick to be or what you hope it is
but a light shines bright though my hopelessness
I get to flowing and I'm known that it's really real
where I'm going ain't bestowing if you sit and chill
it's gon' be more bad days then good ones, somehow you gotta trust that's it's in his will
but that's a tall task when it's nothing coming, you ain't gotta a sign that it's getting better
but it's whatever cause I got it instilled
and really that's only thing that ever appealed, but

[HOOK]
last week I gave up like fo' times, til I woke up with a dope rhyme
last week I gave up like fo' times, last week I gave up like fo' times
last week I gave up like fo' times, til I woke up with a dope rhyme
last week I gave up like fo' times, last week I gave up like fo' times

[VERSE 2]
Last week feeling shit
I wasn't feeling rap, wasn't feeling life
wasn't feeling pain, wasn't feeling strife
and I ain't feel ashamed when I'm up at night
I was numb to it, tryna push through
while you still demanding that I please you
I understand you got needs to attend to
but I got some issues I could issues you could mend to
I guess I'm looking for some sympathy
trying to make my story worse then what's it's meant to be
I'm tryna seem like the only one
who got a couple disadvantages to overcome
but you ain't me and I ain't you so I conclude
no matter how I put you don't understand
fuck searching for a better plan
when you don't have enough belief that I could go expand
see though a disguise
caught up in personal apartheid
praying what I write could be Mandela
until I say it back and I despise
every bar that ever wrote
like was I really cold with the shit I spoke
or am only mediocre
last week I almost told myself it's over

[HOOK]
last week I gave up like fo' times, til I woke up with a dope rhyme
last week I gave up like fo' times, last week I gave up like fo' times
last week I gave up like fo' times, til I woke up with a dope rhyme
last week I gave up like fo' times, last week I gave up like fo' times
Track Name: With Me Tonight
Let put it to you blunt, let me put it to you real,
sometimes I don't wanna fuck sometimes I just wanna chill,
sometimes I wanna feel, wanna feel appreciated,
wanna feel as if I made it wanna feel like I'm the superstar I am,
but not right now I just wanna feel like I'm hot right now, like the 4 door was a drop right now,
like I'm sitting on the muthafuck'n top right now like I'm Pac right now,
like I'm not shot down, cause my plot not sound,
like the spot not crowned, or like I'm even know the location of the castle cause I'm bracing for the battle and a nigga really feeling that I could come through & cop that crown,
shawty fuck that shit I tweet,
the troubles that I'm facing are bigger then the Sphinx,
so ignore what you see on IG from California,
I would love that weather more if I had money to enjoy it,
and I don't need no advice just need someone to listen,
maybe comprehension equipped with I see yo vision,
and I don't need no advice just need someone to listen,
maybe comprehension equipped with I see yo vision

Yesterday my grandma hit me up so I pick up my phone,
and she told me that my auntie Gladys died thee other morn,
and it kinda fucked up cause it put it retrospect, don't know when her time is up,
don't know how much she got left, for all I know she might me next, Myrtle might be calling me,
or the other way around I really just want them to see,
I ain't spending on that money I'm receiving off my mother,
chasing child like fantasies created dream under-covers,
shit sorry if I'm getting to deep for ya,
nah I don't wanna get to deep for ya, I just really feel I could speak to ya,
we differ, but we still the same, cause I swear that I can feel ya pain,
your conceal ya shame, I can feel your change,
so I know you got some shit you could reveal the same,
and if you don't want advice then I'll be here to hearing to listen,
tell you fuck they vision only God can judge decisions
and if you don't want advice then I'll be here to hearing to listen,
tell you fuck they vision only God can judge decisions
Track Name: Untl The Morning
[VERSE 1]
It's been a long week
I been hanging low key
feeling like they'll never know me
feeling like I don't reached my peak
so fuck it all I'ma pull up with a vengeance
do it all when I pull up in the building
and all the money I was saving I'ma spend it
we can figure in the morning if I made a good decision

Track Name: Love, Life
[Verse 1]
Po it taste it, take it slower so you embrace it
bracing like I'm adjacent my bassist I only face it
til it get persuasive like the motion to be evasive
swaying like vertigo done in infested my demonstration
damn shit is crazy but I sit and accept
I ain't sure if this is poison or the reason breath
reason I kept pushing when see I'm inept
or impeding my proceeding like integral step
has gone missing I Iove feeling the She's given
in love with her buzz I promise seem smitten
or am I stricken no control of decisions
like its the POA and I'm left to deal with the symptoms
but I'm with it cause I love the feeling that's she's giving
in the with the love injected when we kissing
Til I wake up and it's over and I swear I'ma quit
next night in the spot tryna get it again

[VERSE 2]

Why you never trust why you with me to set me up
wishing to catch me slipping imprisoned is not enough
see you got me shackled people judging I leave em baffled
my only explanation is you don't know her like I do
but you live & learn, I feel at least you concerned
but you hold on to my past like it was in the urn
play with fire get burned, test my desire I turn
turn to Lundquist with the defending all these goals you adjourned
but still I yearn cause I love the feeling that she's given
in love with her love addicted it seems twisted
maybe I'm trippin, maybe I lack the nutrition
cause what you did for other niggas got feeling I'm different
like I don't get it so I love the feeling that I'm missing
in love with her love or better the vision
but let's keep it g girl I just want what I want
and I might have to come to grips with the fact that you don't
Track Name: The Walker
[VERSE 1]
I was thinking about love, and what the shit really mean, is it all just a myth, is it all just a gift as fall in fifth,
do you love her if you cheat, do I love or seek, attention I ain't getting in the streets,
Ion [I don't] feel it from the beats, Ion [I don't] feel it from the public, so, ion [I don't] ever feel complete,
ion [I don't] ever feel elite, so do I need it cause I suffer, if achieve it would I cuff her,
could that by why I keep it undercover, would I need it from another if proceeded by a mother,
do I need it for the comfort, or do I need it for the sex,
but is it egregious if it's stress, see to me that's the best,
it only means that you blessed with a person who protects if they invest

[HOOK]
(lord knows)
When I don't have thee answers I just pour me up some walker,
when I don't have thee answers I just put me up some walker,
when I don't understand it I just pour me up some walker,
when I don't understand it I just pour me up some walker

When I don't have thee answers I just pour me up some walker,
when I don't have thee answers I just put me up some walker,
when I don't understand it I just pour me up some walker,
when I don't understand it I just pour me up some walker


[VERSE 2]
I was thinking bout my niggas
I was thinking bout my brothers
I was thinking bout my sisters
I was thinking bout the culture and how we need to change it with a vigor
I was thinking bout the drama
I thinking bout Obama
I was thinking bout police
and could they ever get policed
and could really could really come together
I was thinking like I'm King
I was thinking bout his dream how it seems like a dream, least when the flesh intervenes,
when the flesh come between and rest never seen, nothing like oppression to address the obscene
I was thinking bout the man,
and how he never understand,
but I won't even blame it all on him
cause from brother to brother we persecute each other before he even get a chance to lift a hand

[HOOK]
(lord knows)
When I don't have thee answers I just pour me up some walker,
when I don't have thee answers I just put me up some walker,
when I don't understand it I just pour me up some walker,
when I don't understand it I just pour me up some walker

When I don't have thee answers I just pour me up some walker,
when I don't have thee answers I just put me up some walker,
when I don't understand it I just pour me up some walker,
when I don't understand it I just pour me up some walker
Track Name: Drift
[VERSE 1]
Drinking on while I'm bent, looking like Clint, trust me I show true grit
fronting on troubles I'm sent, that's a sign my trust passing I'm on that fence
cause I don't really know about this, everything I spit coming way to blunt
nigga I don't know if I'm falling off or my life to real to be clever to stunt
so still I sip, just feel a bit, just so we'll forget
and feel equipped, but then I wake up (so fucked up) and I'm so hungover feel I should quit
back of the car with cuff on wrist, (back in the bars I'm bout to sit) thinking how I get myself into this/as profound it gets, so I drown in this to battle reminiscing, but still I drift

[HOOK]
Still I drift, still I, still I drift, still I, Still I drift,
Still I drift, still I, still I drift, still I, Still I drift,
Still I drift off in my conscious, I pour one up get non responsive
Still I drift off in my conscious, I pour one up get non responsive

[VERSE 2]
Hopping out the bed around 2, shit to do, spitting just to get me through
shit to lose, except for some time, money and some pride, and some risk to prove
physical-ly everything that make me, me and keep P
seeking for immunity from all my peaks, so my valley don't feel like a fall so steep
so still I sip just feel a bit, just so well forget
and feel equipped but then I wake up, so fucked up feel I should quit
trapped in the laws of the politics, feeling like I lost for I started this
when the thought exist, I fall in this to battle my depression but still I drift

[HOOK]
Still I drift, still I, still I drift, still I, Still I drift,
Still I drift, still I, still I drift, still I, Still I drift,
Still I drift off in my conscious, I pour one up get non responsive
Still I drift off in my conscious, I pour one up get non responsive
Track Name: What I Want (feat. C. Rich)
[VERSE 1]
Girls we to high for games, know you feeling the same
so don't fight what you feeling, don't let them feelings there change
I got you right in range, got you right where I want you
to make the moment sustain roll us some good marijuana
then we can pour us some vino, sip on some shit only we know
she know I'm finish out the city intrigued by all of my lingo
swear I ain't never no goofy
but I might let you use me
since no other can do me, quite the way that you do me
I want ya now, need ya now girl just do me this one favor
don't inquire bout ya questions we can talk about it later
I don't wanna talk I don't wanna think I don't want a speech
unless it's some lessons that ya body could teach

[HOOK]
I can tell you one thing, I gotta have it
girl soft skin with brown eyes and thick thighs I just gotta grab it
your what I want
your what I need
girl what I want
your what I need

[VERSE 2]
Look we sip when we finish pour up, get back to the business
and even though I'm a tenant, I own this shit when I'm in it
I'm vilified by so many, appreciated by few
and you inflate my significance when it's spoke by you
man that's so precious so needed, when glaze in ya soul I can see it
though I seek to oppose what you thinking that notions intriguing
lord knows I need it, I need it I'll believe if you speak it
and then we fuck like I love you, though no emotions impeding
I'll light some incense, some candles, you mentally on my mantel
til you proceed as if the submission was to much handle
I'm a pull up, hop out it, pull up
hop out it again,
when I pull up, I'm bout it
shawty you know what it is


[HOOK]
I can tell you one thing, I gotta have it
girl soft skin with brown eyes and thick thighs I just gotta grab it
your what I want
your what I need
girl what I want
your what I need
Track Name: Your Song (feat. C. Rich & Ivana of VanJess)
LYRICS:
[POEM READ BY IVANA OF VAN JESS]
["Fears of Man" Written by Daniel D]
Is it your pride? Or should I bury my feelings in fear you won't be accepting?
I can't blame you for feeling the way you feel but
I would hope the wall you've built won't block you from what's real
I still get butterflies when you touch me
Yet you pull away the moment We start to fall
Have I not proven you can count on me?
From the beginning you've had my heart
I want to crawl inside your head and rid you of any hurt
any pains that may stop me from being able to love you
not letting me in may or may not protect your heart
seeing that's what you're now use to
I'm positive that it will destroy mine, you're all I know
and I don't think going through this with anyone else is worth my time
I'll make the same mistakes with you over and over if that's cool
I see your potential I just want you to see it too

[PAVY VERSE 1]
We lit like Bobby and Whitney
I ain't gotta guest if you with me
you po' what I po' with me
you smoke what I smoke with me
somehow you take my feelings, and you make a difference
make me quit my pimping,
make me switch decisions,
cause every time you here with me it's so fulfilling
I never felt like this in my whole life
you gotta me feeling like I didn't know life
you got me feeling like I didn't know love
like every other woman showed no love
and when the pressures on
you don't skate alone you embrace ya thrown
you embrace ya home, it's like you made to clone
every thing I'm missing (since) Shari gone
lord knows I'm oh so grateful, lord knows I'm oh so thankful
lord knows you been through shit that seems like it's much to painful
lord knows I'm so imperfect, lord knows I'm just not worth it
lord knows I cry no tears but you'd still be here if them feelings surfaced
and I fuck with you for that, trust in your for that, trust its truth in that
it's like loves a proven fact, bruises brewed when trap, poof when you attack
and the best thing about is you make me feel appreciated
swear to God that I hope I don't another thing to make you deviate it
Track Name: Forgive & Forget (feat. VanJess & Thomas Mac)
[VERSE 1]
Trust was something I ain't get the concept of that
every time you left the house I damn near had a heart attack
I ain't know about forgiveness shit all I knew was spite
even still I didn't get it when the tables flipped to cite
me as the culprit, wasn't sensitive to hearts broken
pissed that ya in feelings never focusing, on the truths that in feeling that I've spoken
though I see, I see what the lies did to me, it deprives from the vibes I release
cause the pride that's inside is my peace
and love is chaotic, that's why needs some narcotics
to so some emotion and show some devotion in public I do in the private
I do it profit I do it in music cause music you digest
and I don't feel none of you care enough bout it to pick out the issues that's found in my logic
I'm either a prophet, or I'm fool, force me to chose
and I'd say the latter is such a more accurate view
and sometimes I feel like I've done everything I do
and sometimes I feel I shouldn't be nothing to you I'm fucking confused

[HOOK]

Cause I don't wanna live like this no more
gon pack all my shit & hit the door
I'm learning to forgive & to forget
so Lord won't you grant me this wish
help me to not be bitter
cause I don't wanna be that nigga
I don't wanna be angry I just wanna understand
over time the pain will lesson one day we can all be friends
I have not yet learned my lesson but it won't happen again
it won't happen again


[VERSE 2]
I wonder one day back in 01, maybe it was 02 I was so young
and my dad came to pick me up my grandma kicked him out and said around here you don't come
to keep it real it was funny in my mind it was funny at the time I ain't understand the situation
All I know is I was riding with my grandma basis cause I ain't like going to church every Sunday waking
up at 8am, getting there at 9 we ain't leaving until 3 o clock and by that time
most the football was off TV so I did mind thee new rules that was set line
but now I see that she was tripping though, but I don't ever wish I could've seen it different though
cause is what it is was it was plus it taught me that it's critical
to learn how to forgive forget and then move on
cause you make mistakes how grown
growing up was crazy but they did best
and no I ain't have everything but most around had less
dressing to impress only got me stress
I remember wishing I was poorer just to fit in with the rest
but in a way shit I feel I deserved what I receive
cause dealing with the struggles only got me what I need
(one mo' time)


[HOOK]

Cause I don't wanna live like this no more
gon pack all my shit & hit the door
I'm learning to forgive & to forget
so Lord won't you grant me this wish
help me to not be bitter
cause I don't wanna be that nigga
I don't wanna be angry I just wanna understand
over time the pain will lesson one day we can all be friends
I have not yet learned my lesson but it won't happen again
it won't happen again
