about

I turned 21 years old the day this EP was released, and if there's one thing I've learned, it's that life is a roller coaster with many highs, as well as many lows, and when you're at those low points you just gotta take a second to put all your worries aside and be thankful you're still breathing because things could be worse. Positive thinking is key to being happy.

"Is the glass half full or half empty? It's based on your perspective, quite simply."
-Substantial - "Think Different"

Track Name: All the Same (Prod. by miska.)
I ain't got much/
All I gots a roof over my head/
and got myself a bed
that I lay on when I got lyrrics to write and then/
I go over to my corner where my laptops on my desk/
Open up my DAW so I can record/
Cuz this is more than a hobby or something to do when I'm bored/
I got love for this, love for the craft/
Choppin samples up I can never get enough of that Jazz/
This is all I really need/
Just gimme a pen and pad and a really nice beat/
and I'll be good for the day, or for the rest of the week/
I'm so glad I'm not deaf and I'm blessed that i can speak/ with the
ability to put my thoughts into rhymes/
I never knew how many people relate to what goes in my mind/
It just shows how we're the same/
Regardless of your age, class, gender or race/

We might be different but we are all the same/
We might be different but we are all the same/
We might be different but we are all the same/
At the end of the day we all want the same thing/
to be
happy (x3)
just wanna be
happy (x3)
just wanna be
happy (x3)
Just wanna be happy
just wanna be happy
just wanna be..
Track Name: The World Ain't That Bad (Prod. by miska.)
I've seen people make mistakes/
Shit I even make some myself/
But some people are stubborn and won't make that change/
But I've seen people learn and get that help/

I've seen people turn to violence/
Only cuz that's the only way to solve problems that they have/
I've seen people show kindness/
Even to the people who have harmed them or wronged them in that past/

I've known people that are greedy/
Only thinking about them selves cuz their selfish/
But I've known people who give out to the needy/
Dedicating their lives helping those that are helpless

See, it's the dynamics of this Earth/
That really make it turn, for better or for worse/
Some people start fires so they can watch us burn/
And some teach to help us learn/

That the world ain't that bad, depends on how you look at it/
That the world ain't that bad, depends on how you look at it/
No point on dwelling on what could have, would or should have been/
Just leave it all behind, and look for all the good it/

I've known people that are unfaithful/
Unable to keep a relationship stable/
I've known people that are so grateful/
For the people around them they stay together like a staple/

I've seen people who give in to addiction/
Giving up on life like their life's already over/
I've known people who have made the decision/
to better themselves by getting sober/

I've seen people burn bridges/
Loosing friends cuz they don't wanna swallow their pride/
I've also seen people who have asked for forgiveness/
Admitting their wrong and then come to a compromise/

See, it's the dynamics of this Earth/
That really make it turn, for better or for worse/
Some people start fires so they can watch us burn/
And some teach to help us learn/

That the world ain't that bad, depends on how you look at it/
That the world ain't that bad, depends on how you look at it/
No point on dwelling on what could have, would or should have been/
Just leave it all behind, and look for all the good it/
Track Name: The Journey (Prod. by miska.)
So where do I begin, man I don't know/
I've had ideas of where I wanna go/
Or where I wanna be by the end of this/
But it's still not clear like "damn is there an end to this?"
I've wasted too much time and I'm wasting too much time/
Just trying to find out what the ending is/
It's like watching a movie with a friend/
And the whole time they're guess what happens in the end/
It's like "Shut Up. Just watch what happens/
cuz every time you talk it's distracting."
Defeats the purpose of the story/
If you skip over the little things that lead up to the glory/
So what I'm getting at is the fact the I'm impatient/
And I wanna reach the top without waiting/
So i can make up for the time that I've wasted/
And I want it so bad I'll be crushed if I don't make it/
So all this anticipation/
Is making me nervous but I know the journey is worth it/
Is making me nervous but I know the journey is worth it/
Is making me nervous but I know the journey is worth it/

Track Name: Glass Half Full (Prod. by miska.)
Parents got divorced when I was young/
I hardly saw my dad. It made me kind of numb/
But if I would have stayed in the place where I'm from/
There's a good chance I'd have picked up a gun/
Now as a kid I would go to stores and I'd steal/
One day I got caught, and shit became real/
I was scared of cops, but more so my moms fist/
I never stole again. She made sure I never did/
Fast forward couple years to my first girlfriend/
She's the reason why I'm no longer a virgin/
But after 3 years we broke up and I was crushed/
But if I never met her I'd have never known love/
Back in high school I wanted to play ball/
I wasn't very big and of course I wasn't tall/
But I was pretty fast. Joined Track and ran for distance/
And on the team I made a friend who got me into spitting/
Makes me wonder where I'd be if none of this had happened/
Some shit was tragic but I'm glad where I'm at man/
And I've learned to get past all the bull/
and try to remember that the glass is half full/

(x2)
I try to remember that the glass is half full/
I try to remember that the glass is half full/
I try to remember that the glass is half full/
That the glass is half full/
Track Name: Peace of Mind (Prod. by miska.)
Am I supposed to listen to the voice in my head?/
I think he's trying to gas me up with that shit that has lead/
So I go to ask my gut so I can see what he says/
But it seems I'm out of luck because his phone lines dead/
And then my heart interrupts says that I should get rest/
Because my mind has had enough its bout to break from the stress/
There's no diamond in the rough. Maybe it's time I give this up/
If I can't even put trust into my own mind yet/
I got some people that tell me to keep on just moving/
It's gonna take time but you gonna get through it/
And everything's gonna be fine you'll be all right/
But idk what to do when there's/
So many things I gotta listen to/
Cannot tell what is and what fuckin isn't true/
Got me confused and nothing is working/
I feel like I'm drowning so I'm tryin to swim to the surface/
To gasp for air, just had a near death moment/
Almost drowned inside my thoughts under this sea of emotion/
But in that slice of time I felt good like I was free/
Because Nothing else mattered but this air that I breath/
Because nothing else matters but this love that I have/
So fuck all that extr shit that's been holding me back/
Keep it all cuz I'm ok with leaving it behind/
Cuz I (cuz I) ayo I found some peace of mind/

(x2)
I've found some peace of mind/
I've found some peace of mind/
I've found some peace of mind/
I've finally found some peace of mind it's a ll fine
