Track Name: Shadows
[Verse 1: Silas]

Shadow play, I can see the writing on the wall
Tragic heroes - destined for downfall
Our civilization, oh so uncivilized
Properly improper, another beast in disguise
Everywhere we look, everywhere we go
All shady everything, like a crow - Jon Snow
Back as kids this world used to seem so bright
Couple years later - it all shines in a different light
Betrayal, backstabbing, treachery
Call it what you want I think it's still a tragedy
Or am I just too blue-eyed, too naive?
I know it sounds crazy, deep down I still believe
In the good in people - it's buried somewhere in there
But no one seems to care, yup
Shadow play, can you see the writing on the wall?
Yeah, it's coming closer, soon we'll see it all.

[Verse 2: B.g. Bene]

Shadow’s on the go, yeah that’s shadow’s on the fall
I’ll be shadowboxing till I’ma just bask in the glow
Why don’t you ask the whole globe
They’re in the realm of the shades and it’s all grey, all shady
That’s bad kinky, I’m talking about normality of unnormal parallels that exist
In your penchant for paranoia
But that was just the world talking in my stead, shit
Why don’t you start ti-tidying your head, bitch?
A travesty in a everyday life, we switch roles,
We switch lives and then we twist lies, we disguise
Our imaginations, we keep em in the dark
They ain’t gonna come out of there,
So we on a path to nowhere,
But fuck it - I’m still rapping like that’s still somewhere
But can you see the shadow play,
Can you see the writing on the wall
Soon we’ll see it all…
Track Name: Corners
[Verse 1: Silas]

Sitting on the corner watching life pass me by
See the people that I love right before my inner eye
Some gone but still there telling me they did care
Same for those that’s still here? Well that’s up in the air
You tell me, cause sometimes I feel left alone
I don’t know where I’m headed - my destiny is unknown
It feels like no one really knows me anymore
But then again, maybe they never knew me before
Never knew who I am and who I really wanna be
Superficial entities, only got love for “me”
That’s you. So that’s that - fuck it, we’re through
And I ask myself what am I supposed to do?
Heart stuck in the past, mind looking ahead
Where will it take me? I just don’t know yet.
So for now I’m sitting right here
Watching life pass me by as I shed a tear..

[Verse 2: B.g. Bene]


Walking around the corner, watching life pass me by
I just try to tolerate what I see through my inner eye
Influences - that just cut right through my weak spots
Sometimes I ask myself:
Where did these people come from?
Dark places? Spreading evil?
Pretending that they knew me when for a fact
Only the devil tried to woo me so it’s friends with made up
Identities? I guess that’s just the vanity of feeling some kind of sanity?
But hey, reality check.
Corners lurking we could be friends with benefits, but
Man, I’m still hurting
Satisfaction when I close all those curtains
That’s a new chapter - I don’t know but is it worth it?
Honestly, I would be lying if I knew
I just hope around the corner,
I can start something new
I just hope around the corner I can start something new….
Track Name: Here With Me (prod. by Silas)
[Verse 1: B.g. Bene]

Nothing lasts forever, and when it rains it pours
Just know that when I knock on heaven’s doors
It’ll be forever - what am I writing you these letters for?
They only color my pain, while my gain is just blank
A sheet of paper - what do you see in people’s eyes?
When I see that they ain’t really got no true, true disguise
They keep holding the world accountable for their own failures
But there’s a lesson that I learned when you can’t cope with the mirror
Am I just speaking to myself?
Am I just a shell of my former self?
The way I see it, we don’t see eye to eye
On the brink of losing hope - naw homie, this ain’t no joke
‘till it’s too late - yeah, you just sealed your fate
Dark clouds keep on turning up, overshadow your path
The longer the lines, the stronger the deprivation
Naw homie, this ain’t no invocation

[Verse 2: Silas]
Nothing lasts forever and when it rains it pours
Just know that when I knock, on heavens doors
It’ll be forever, what am I writing you these letters for
They only show you my soul but you don’t even care, huh
I can see it in your eyes, I can see right through your lies
I can see that your whole identity’s just a disguise
I can tell even though you never really thought I could
And you done stopped caring even though I never thought you would
So I keep, keep going ‘till my legs give in
And you keep, keep, keep showing who you’ve really been
All this time, never saw it coming never thought that it would happen
Otherwise I’d sent you packing, now I’m trapped in
This maze I built myself, insecure and helpless
With no way out, no escape plan, dark clouds mark the days end
All the voices in my head - today I think they win
Always here with me, so I guess I’ll have to be patient
Track Name: Broken Again
[Verse 1: Silas]

I got visions for the future, got a lot of shit on my bucket list and I ain’t tryna quit
Naw never man, forget about it, this is through
Got goals and a lot of things I gotta do
So I never saw it coming, it came out of the blue
Hadn’t thought about it in a while but it came true
Now the past is catching up, tryna pull me back in, yup
and remind me of my sins
Vision becoming blurry, can’t see or think straight
Can feel or relate but is it real or fake, huh?
Fuck it, in the end it doesn’t matter cause I know it’s for the better
But will it ever let it up? i don’t think so, so i gotta look ahead
Even though i know i’ll never really truly forget
But that’s just how it’s s’posed to be - that’s the moral of the story
On my road to glory - please pray for me

Cause i could’ve never come this far and i have you to thank for where we are… (2x)

[Verse 2: B.g. Bene]

You see, I was meditating
Sometimes the only thing that keeps me going is agitation
Though when I look back, this ain’t how it supposed to be
The reflexion of my soul shall echo my goals
I stray from it though, cause my heart is hardened
I got a burden that I carry deep down till my obituary
Worries? Yeah, but I’ma deal with em
You can tell a man what he’s worth - never take his freedom
But I know the hits finna keep on coming
I just stay sharp ‘cause my mind is a weapon
Do you think that shit is bait, huh?
I ain’t gonna retaliate or lose faith, huh?

So I gotta keep on going cause once you stand still - yeah, that’s your weakest moment (2x)
Track Name: My Shot (prod. by Silas)
[Intro & Verse 1: B.g. Bene]

You know, it’s just what I’ve been
saying, like
there’s just some people in this world
trying to take their shot
but they keep telling themselves
that they’re gone miss it, you know?
But this time it ain’t gone be me, though….

Paint a picture youngin’ - let em see this for real though
I used to aim to shoot, now I’m shooting for aim
‘Cause all that’s left in this life I lead -
Missing more shots - Yeah, I’m shooting more jumpers
I’m on the lookout, evading my own fears
And it feels kind of joyless but the opportunities were here
To miss or to make em
So what you’re really going up against this whole time
Just an outline of pessimism
But I only got so many shots,
So I just rushed or dumped em all
I always was that quiet brother lingering in my dorm
Just wait until I get out of that dorm..
I’m on the hunt for regaining some of my fucking conscience
That I took away myself - to learn for the future
F-society - am I on my own?
Please tell me I’m reaching for something more like, ey

[Hook]

Who are you to tell me what it’s all about?
Not alone just the only one to figure out
What’s real and what’s not - one life, one shot
Don’t tell me that you’ve heard it all before
Even if so, let me tell you once more
I’m here to stay and I won’t budge
This is my life and this is my shot

[Verse 2: Silas]

And I’ma take it, I’ma I’ma I’ma take it
And I’ma make it, ah hell yeah i’ll make it
I don’t care what you tell me cause this is me
And I’ma do what i think best ‘cause I am free
Free of all the pettiness and the nonsense
Free of all your silly games and free of the past tense
Because today is a present, it’s a gift
I know who I am and that’s just pure bliss
Self-defined, me and him till the end of time
Only God can judge - me and my rhymes
So I pick up the pen, even though I can’t write my sins away
I know they’re not here to stay, huh
But i’m going places if you’re taking me
I can do all things cause you strengthen me
So I could care less what the people say
‘Cause like Mr. West - I got it all day

[Hook]

Who are you to tell me what it’s all about?
Not alone just the only one to figure out
What’s real and what’s not - one life, one shot
Don’t tell me that you’ve heard it all before
Even if so, let me tell you once more
I’m here to stay and I won’t budge
This is my life and this is my shot
Track Name: One Day
[Intro (from “The Wire”)]

-What about the fence? -Fuck the fence.
-What about the dog? -Fuck the dog.
All that time I was resting yo, it got me thinking.
It got good to me, too.
-Copper house.
Gracious.
I gotta go, can you cash me out?
-If you ain't got dreams, Bubs, what the fuck you got?

[Verse 1: Silas]

Now let me tell you what I dream about
What I pray for, what I live for and what I’m all about
‘Cause if you ain’t got dreams it feel like you ain’t got shit
Without hope and without love, life feel like it ain’t worth shit
So I try to make sure that’ll never be the case
Even though the world outside can make you feel so afraid
You really care about my color or my creed?
Don’t even mention all the money and the greed
What’s so different about you and me?
Blood running through our veins man, it’s a fucking shame
Seems like we can never let it be
We should though
And every single day I really wish we would, yo
So I’ll never lose my faith
And when I look closer often find myself amazed
By the people out there and the ones close to me
So I sing this song and hope you’ll sing along with me

[Hook: Silas]

Maybe one day we gon wake up and we gon make up
Maybe one day we gon get it straight and we gon face off
With our biggest fears, get rid off all the tears
We’d much rather smile, let’s go the extra mile
Maybe I’m just a dreamer - I’d say I’m a believer
Maybe one day

[Verse 2 - B.g. Bene]

Now let me tell you what I scheme about
What I stay up for - I got to
Keep my head above the water
Cause in this life we lead,
we’d rather feel the need to oppress than digest
We try to make the pain go away, by hiding it inside
Tell ourselves some fucking lies
Then go to bed, wake up in sweat
Rise again, like ain’t shit changed
We want change, without change
I think I’ll put the pen to the side…
So wake me up when the world is sleeping
I think I try too hard, but I kind of lust in
Feel the blood rushing through my veins
Part of these growing pains, growing pains
But maybe one day, we’re on this island together
Telling love stories, never minding the matter
And all this fucking cheddar
I feel it melting away, ey
One day I’ma live to see another day

[Hook: Silas]

Maybe one day we gon wake up and we gon make up
Maybe one day we gon get it straight and we gon face off
With our biggest fears, get rid off all the tears
We’d much rather smile, let’s go the extra mile
Maybe I’m just a dreamer - I’d say I’m a believer
Maybe one day

[Verse 3: B.g. Bene & Silas]

Maybe one day, we can settle this mess
For what is love if you receive but give nothing back
Only pilling up those dollars,
It’s about time for an intervention.
Something that ain’t conventional
Not to live up to the hype, rather to your own potential
Excel in the mental
Now go ahead and build on those fundamentals

Maybe one day we gon live in peace
No more blood in the streets, no more RIPs
Maybe we gon finally see
Love and equality, not police brutality
Now this might be Utopia
But I don’t care who you are
This is reaching for the stars
And I’m not settling for less
In my most vivid dreams, this world isn’t such a mess.

[Hook: Silas]

Maybe one day we gon wake up and we gon make up
Maybe one day we gon get it straight and we gon face off
With our biggest fears, get rid off all the tears
We’d much rather smile, let’s go the extra mile
Maybe I’m just a dreamer - I’d say I’m a believer
Maybe one day
