I woke up to the smell of old OJ Mixed with morning breath Maggie Simpson sounds and Cold Play I can’t explain it A missed call from Chris, Martins on A light shined from the breaking of dawn I managed to yawn Then removed a head from my arm And hammer danced calm Through diapers, toys, pillows and clothes As not to expose A noise from the stubbing of toes In hopes that their sleep would still remain froze Like Kaepernick It the completion, but never the end Could snap a pic Not for the Gram tho Motivation for my inner AMO You are a new day like 12 O O A Rare Essence to behold You are so Go Go Cover with blood fill with spirit You be our Solo dolo oh oh oh oh Oh we made it past the, Man on the moon Without the help of Lunesta Grateful for another to rise and so I bless ya Ask you intentions on bringing me here from yester With hopes you will clear any residue that will fester Through Mon Tues Wed Thurs Fri Took time Sat with the Sun and seen that I Could finally surpass the week So I take it Day to day Follow his steps and make my path unique SO Hook Good morning Hey God how you doing I look forward to time spent with you when I wake up to a life filled with new wind And my sole purpose in it is to win (X2) I’m headed for a brighter day and so I pray That he will have the final say and come what may And even when the skies are gray I find a way To make it to the… blue (X2)

VRS 1 100 pennies 20 nickels It’s never been All about the Homer catch phrase In my sentiment Standing on the substance of my hope With no evidence When my funds is low I keep my pockets on heaven cent Cause dough go soon But was stays round is knocks on Room When Doc tells wife That she won’t have a child from womb Chance slim as black lives matter Support from Tune She looks at me And I can see the doubt consume Thoughts That she will never bear So my job as a husband Is to dead the fear So I looked her eyes and told he be aware That he took us from The Brook, to the Creek, now we Be Do you remember? With a nod she replied with yea And there’s no form of currency that could get us here But the inspiration we carried through the years We made it through the pain With faith and a little bit of change HOOK Said I don’t got a penny for your thoughts Or a nickel for your kiss What I carry is inspiration Hopefully it makes sense Change Make a change my brother Make a change Said I don’t got a penny for your thoughts Or a nickel for your kiss What I carry is inspiration Hopefully it makes sense Change Make a change my sister Make a change VRS 2 So whether its 4 quarters or 10 dimes The goal is always keep it a male Dear people This for the ones who’s feeling under The thunder and rain and wonder If happiness they can plunder See the rays of the summer While in the place of a plumber Draining Hilarious now ain’t it How often we complaining When what we want we can obtain If we stop under aiming Shooting for stars When there’s so much beyond But where you shoot When the lights are no longer on Cause I done seen friends turn associates Hope turn to hopelessness Apartments going up into flames I seen truth turn to lies and Joy turn to cries A father ‘n’ son who’s home ain’t the same So I could focus on the negative Really is it relative And all in all what would it gain Or I could focus on the hill from Where my help come And the inspiration will remain HOOK Said I don’t got a penny for your thoughts Or a nickel for your kiss What I carry is inspiration Hopefully it makes sense Change Make a change my brother Make a change Said I don’t got a penny for your thoughts Or a nickel for your kiss What I carry is inspiration Hopefully it makes sense Change Make a change my sister Make a change BRIDGE Penny, quarter, nickel, dime Half or a dollar What I got is divine (x4) Inspiration

VRS 1 Eulogies, wake viewings and last words Know I left behind Something that will outlast verbs Every vocal reveals sight for those blurred Lines fulfilled faith growth When they heard So when I leave Let you celebrate my voice Hopefully my lyrics Helped your spirit with a choice Peeled the Keys back And benefits was noice For the crown that we hoist Is a merit to rejoice Meaning ain’t no limits to the Dream Shake opposition New beginnings be Akeem Never focus on How they may judge in the ring If you boxed in the blood Then the love is Supreme HOOK Encore (x3) Moment of silence But all they say is they want more VRS 2 A Carolina kid with Panamanian blood Brooklyn in his vein Southern slang from his mug Pain from an uncle Who was slain from a slug He’d refrain from the banging Or slanging of Drug Ironic that on the block, the Rock Became his life savor Serving sweet dimes Would turn to rhymes later Perfect timing Kinda reminiscent of the title Of that sitcom from his childhood With Zack and Slater It’s alright, look how he turned 2 from 1 When the mic rose Talents he spewed sound from tongue In the ground goes nothing His souls cell was sprung Led a life so rare His return, Well done HOOK Encore (x3) Moment of silence But all they say is they want more BRIDGE When I’m dead and gone What more will they say Hopefully they speak of honor With respects that they pay And I’ll receive an Encore A round of applause An Encore For my life’s rewards (X2)
