lyrics

The past is over the future is now
Make it your own create it with style and
No no man is an island
No more playing no violence
We are steadily rising
Through the plans we're devising
Making it breaking it down
The past is over the future is now

I Write and make it
Exciting just take it
To heightened new places
I'm frightened of faces
I beat up the beat
and just worked on the basics
My album's complete
And I'm pullin up aces
I don't play poker
but I know a joker
Like Steve Miller Band
Goddamn I just quote ya
Five albums deep
So by now I done told ya
Steady Improvement
As I become older
Refining my craft
I'm like vintage wine aging
Defining my past
By the way that I say things
The present, the hear and now
Is what I'm savoring
Standards are high
Commitment's unwavering
The future is blazing
a hole in the sky
It looks so amazing
I'm traveling by
Unravelling my chronology, all of me
Gift of Gab let's collab! Come follow me!

The past is over the future is now
Make it your own create it with style and
No no man is an island
No more playing no violence
We are steadily rising
Through the plans we're devising
Making it breaking it down
The past is over the future is now

Listen the mission I'm on
As a lyricist/songwriter/emcee is far
Way bigger than I am applaud
The credit is not mine at all
I'm merely a vessel that's lost
In rhythm the infinite force
Is giving me this to deliver across to ya
It was all a dream and a calling
Battling in my high school as a sophomore
Who would've thought that rapper would later be
Traveling nations and having a tour
Been through some lows got battered and scarred
So many places and tarots and bars
Future is all about tapping a source
And pushing my goals like a javelin forth
I'm average or the madness of it is
Happiness love we at destiny's door

The past is over the future is now
Make it your own create it with style and
No no man is an island
No more playing no violence
We are steadily rising
Through the plans we're devising
Making it breaking it down
The past is over the future is now!
