Track Name: Introducing Running, The Mixtape
Verse 1
1, 2, 3, 4
I ain't never felt like this before
feeling like an earthquake
ground breaking
floor shaking
feeling fear no more
some people were trying to stop me
re route me, deprive me and tell me
girl you just ain't good enough
they be telling me I'm too fat, I'm too black
your hair's nappy
your style's crappy
you're never gone make it
true story
but I take them words
grind them down and eat them up
Ladies and gentlemen introducing
everything you been missing
I ain't tripping
I'm winning!

Hook
I'm just running, just running, just running
I'm just running, just running, just running
yea
Gotta keep on running now
(repeat)
Track Name: Broke (Radio Version)
Hook Tag
Da, dada, do di
Da, dada, do di
Da, dada, doom, yea

Verse 1
Bet your sitting there wondering how
how your gonna pay that stupid bill
or if you'll get another free meal
Well, me too
You got bad news yesterday
to top it off your car got booted
because you paid your parking tickets to late

B-Section
I can't catch a break
I'm tired of feeling this way
its like Andrew Jackson hates my guts
and me and Benjamin are enemies

Hook
I'm sick of being broke
one day I will see
just how cool it is to be
1 of the ones screaming
money ain't a thing
I'm sick of being broke
I wanna know what it feels like
to ride around in a benz all night
and everything is alright
I'm so sick of being broke

Hook Tag
Hey, Da, dada, do di
Da, dada, do di
Da, dada, doom, yea

Verse 2
I think I gotta call my momma again
because my gas tank is on E
and I got somewhere to be
why me?
So picked up the phone and dialed her number
to my surprise my phone's been cut off
this is crazy
you gotta be kidding me

B-Section
I can't catch a break
I'm tired of feeling this way
its like Andrew Jackson hates my guts
and me and Benjamin are enemies

Hook
I'm sick of being broke
one day I will see
just how cool it is to be
1 of the ones screaming
money ain't a thing
I'm sick of being broke
I wanna know what it feels like
to ride around in a benz all night
and everything is alright
I'm so sick of being broke

Bridge
I know there's somebody
who feels how I feel
but don't get me wrong
I know things will get better
in the end
if I keep my eyes on the light at the end of the tunnel
then every little thing that I've been through
will be worth it in the end

Hook
I'm sick of being broke
one day I will see
just how cool it is to be
1 of the ones screaming
money ain't a thing
I'm sick of being broke
I wanna know what it feels like
to ride around in a benz all night
and everything is alright
I'm so sick of being broke

Hook Tag
Hey, Da, dada, do di
Da, dada, do di
Da, dada, doom, yea
Track Name: Poison
Verse 1
Where was the Lord
not in my mind when I chose this place
Oh!
Shutting it out the sense it made
right in my face

B-Section
But your touch
the taste
so bitter yet
I couldn't put you away
and it led me to this fate

Hook
1 look in my eyes
sent you through my vains
with no pretense
my sacrifice
tore a heart from a chest
of a girl with no defense
I made this poison

Verse 2
Was at your feet
worshipping us
and what it meant to me
Oh!
Who would've thought a bite so sweet
could ever sting

B-Section 2
As the water peaked
the tide came in
and washed me into your deep
drifting miles away from me

Hook
1 look in my eyes
sent you through my vains
with no pretense
my sacrifice
tore a heart from a chest
of a girl with no defense
I made this poison

Hook tag
I made this poison, yea
I made this poison
yea, yea
I made this poison
yea, yea
I made this poison
Oh its like poison, yea

Bridge
I'm sitting in misery
blinded I'm thinking that its love
but this ain't love
its hell on earth
this ain't worth it
Gotta turn my back on lies
and run for my life
my life

Hook
Oh
sent you through my vains
with no pretense
my sacrifice
tore a heart from a chest
of a girl with no defense

Hook tag
I made this poison, yea
I made this poison
yea, yea
I made this poison
yea, yea
I made this poison
Oh I hate this poison, yea
I made this poison
Oh
I made this poison
Oh
I made this poison
Track Name: 1:17AM (Go Away)
Hook
I never thought this
day would ever
come again
I wanna say
that I just want this pain to go away
that I just want this pain to go away
that I just want this pain to go away
get up off me
I never wanna see your face again
perish, perish, perish

Verse 1
Laying in my bed asleep
and I get a call I'm wakened
your voice was unexpected
I thought that we were friends
we were friends
Oh
but you had other plans

B-Section
Your sweet words were doing things to me
brain washing me
making me believe this wasn't messed up
but in the back of my mind
I knew that your only goal was to trip me up
curiosity killed the cat
and just like that
I fell fast
I'm all emotional
I am!

Hook
I never thought this
day would ever
come again
I wanna say
that I just want this pain to go away
that I just want this pain to go away
that I just want this pain to go away
get up off me
I never wanna see your face again
perish, perish, perish

Verse 2
Its like you knew the very things inside my heart
to make me go there
so slick got under my skin
so sickening I gave in
once again
Oh
but now I see the plan

B-Section 2
Your sweet words were stealing all of me
killed morality
making me believe this wasn't messed up
but in the back of my mind
I knew that your only goal was to trip me up
curiosity killed the cat
and 9 lives up
can't bounce back
how did I get this far
How?

Hook
I never thought this
day would ever
come again
I wanna say
that I just want this pain to go away
that I just want this pain to go away
that I just want this pain to go away
get up off me
I never wanna see your face again
perish, perish, perish

Bridge
And if I didn't fall in
would I still be cleansed
or is it fate for me to live dirty
dying in a bed that sin made me
Oh it isn't so
No it isn't so
Let me tell you why it isn't so

Special
In the winter
in the fall
in the spring
you got me wrapped
and he's a winner so its not in vain
I got a thorn
so I got a little pain
my umbrella so bring on the rain
sun through the shade
not deep so I wade
wash me over with your water
and I'm saved
and the one who destroys
gon be here til my grave
but on my knees
I pray

Hook (out)
I never thought this
day would ever
come again
I wanna say
that I just want this pain to go away
that I just want this pain to go away

Letting the past move in
And I'm feeling myself thinking
About all of the times
I forgot You
And everytime
I neglected you

Forgetting all about You
Reckless was my middle name
But You still loved me just the same

And I know
I won't be the same
How could I say that I don't know You

All this love
Coming straight from You

You said I could call Your name
And every time You'd show Your face
Even though I'm a disgrace
You still love me just the same

I'll never
I'll never forget

Verse 1
In the subway
and the train speeds off
see the streaked up painting of the platform art
with young folks kissing
and old folks staring
business men

see the streaked up painting of the platform art
oh mom and baby
barely 18
wondering how she's gonna feed him tonight

Oh life
Like a smeared up painting
of the people zooming by
and I cry
I cry
cuz the smeared up painting
is the portrait framing of I

Verse 2
In the subway
and the train speeds off
see the streaked up painting of the platform art
with one man laughing
and one man crying
neither one knows
what he's missing
in the subway
as the train speeds off
see the streaked up painting of the platform art
the children pointing
at the old vet begging
wall street gent
impatiently waiting

Hook
And that's life
Oh life

Track Name: Best Friend
Verse 1
16 years old on Curtis street
them flowers got some dirt on me
you saw it from the back seat
Oh
Embarrassed but I managed hi
I could've crawled away and died
but you called me that night

B-Section
Eventually
baby
we fell in love
then out of love
and then back in love
so young and dumb

Hook
And now we're best friends
I don't care what people say
all I think about everyday
is spending my whole life with you boy
and through every moment
you can trust me with your life
and I'm gone trust you with mine
as long as we're here
I will always be your best friend

Verse 2
11 years have skated by
to many memories for these lines
we've had a trillion happy times
Oh
You made me feel so beautiful
and I've held your hand on every road
this is beautiful

B-Section 2
We've had our fun
baby
when in love
and then we grew up
and realized our hearts were telling us

Hook
To be best friends
I don't care what people say
all I think about everyday
is spending my whole life with you boy
and through every moment
you can trust me with your life
and I'm gone trust you with mine
as long as we're here
I will always be your best friend

Bridge
Some may not understand
its not for their interpretation
all these feelings that we share
our love
doesn't have a name
but it shares a common place
your heart and mind
my best friend

Hook
I don't care what people say
all I think about everyday
is spending my whole life with you boy
and through every moment
you can trust me with your life
and I'm gone trust you with mine
as long as we're here
I will always be your best friend

(repeat out)
