Track Name: Came Here 2 Rock
Well it seems like we've done this before
Come on party people I'm needing some more
Calling all dancers report to the floor
Shutting down shop never minding the store
Last act was starting to bore
I take the stage now their starting to roar
(Alias)
Their screaming encore
Encore I guess they want more
When it comes to my sales hope your not sore
Fresh off the stage so you know my breathes short
Securities something I can't afford not to have
When i'm leaving the port 1 to the 2, 3 to the 4
So many flows which I know you adore
When i'm on the mic keeping up is a chore
Anchors up were coming ashore cause
We Came Here 2 Rock

We came here 2
We came here 2
We came here 2
We came here 2 Rock

Came from the bottom rose up to the top
I've been known for making spots hot
I'm just getting started so why would I stop
Come to the spot blow up the whole block
Is it time to bounce let me check the wristwatch
Semi-Automatic it sounds like a glock
Blow-Blow
I'm moving the crowd
Yeah-Yeah
That's how I get down
Sub-woofer pumping keep moving them sounds
Crowd jumping we bumping around
Slumping and dumping we stomping the ground
Looking for something grab someone right now
Fist in the air pump while you pound
Once i'm here people surround
Even if deaf your still feeling the sound
Even if deaf your still feeling the sound
Track Name: I Don't Plan On Stopping
I've been sent by the Lord from up above
To come down to this earth burn up the whole club
Someone sound the alarm it's been mixed by Dub
Now everbody everybody showing me love
I've been sent to clean house and shake up the rug
Taking out trash and erasing mean mugs
If men are from Mars let me head to Venus
Etnie skate shoes when I walk on the carpet
Only heard a little bit so allow me to start this
Spark this party off ima leave it sparkling
Dancing all night I can barely walk when it's time to leave
Find me shadow boxing with a shadow of myself
On the floor beatboxing Yeah that's right
I'm precariously rocking
Said it before ima say it again
This is album number one I don't plan on stopping

I don't plan on stopping I don't plan on giving up
I don't ever plan on quitting
I have been blessed with too much see
I started at the bottom but now things is looking up
And i'm glad to see these footprints
When these times be getting tough

Walk up in the club like I own the place
All eye's on me when i'm taking the stage
I got a track so hot that you can't complain
Messing with fire c'mon fan the flame
Name brand Alias you could know him by name
Ima just throw it out there it's still the same
Only thing changed is I removed the fake
Fell off track now i'm back no mistakes
And I must admit yes it does feel great
Been a hot minute but it's worth the wait
Doctor, Doctor call a nurse
Emergency Room drop it hot till it hurts
Competition leaves with 3rd degree burns
Aloe Vera when you gonna learn
Listen up fella better wait your turn
No standing in line this my time for sure

I don't plan on stopping I don't plan on giving up
I don't ever plan on quitting
I have been blessed with too much see
I started at the bottom but now things is looking up
And i'm glad to see these footprints
When these times be getting tough

911 Better call in the fire
Alias is here other rappers retire
No need to bow don't you call me sire
I'm just sick of rap cats and they false satire
Drop another dance track to start the night up
I'm the firing squad and your in the lineup
So lineup boy cause your crossing that
And you better think twice before you cross that line
There's a balance so fine that you just might find
My equilibriums all off time
Sneak up from behind because im out my mind
Eating grapes dangling from a tuna fish vine
Try to make sense out the last dang line
I've tried and tried and tried just can't find it
Anyhow that's the way I designed it
And wrote it in a rhyme mixed with perfect timing

I don't plan on stopping I don't plan on giving up
I don't ever plan on quitting
I have been blessed with too much see
I started at the bottom but now things is looking up
And i'm glad to see these footprints
When these times be getting tough
Track Name: Higher
Been gone for a minute now i'm back on the map
I got my shoes laced tight plan on running this track
I had some things messed up from the crew that I ran with
And at the time I didn't know it but now I understand this
Theres demons in this world full of selfish schemes
And they filling up their pockets and belly's on peoples dreams Motivated only by the essence of money and greed
And they blend in oh so easily
I must admit I was stooped yeah fooled by the best
And I was starting to blend in and look just like the rest
of the world from which you called me to be set apart from
Lord im sorry right now feel like the prodigal son
Let me come home Daddy cause im missing Your arms
Need to feel Your touch right now could You clear up this storm Did things on my own for way to long And now it's all messed up could you hold me strong

I'll go ima give it all and I won't slow
Ima show the world what they don't know
Ima be the one ima be the one when im done
When I make it higher If I made it this far
I can make it anywhere

No wonder i'm having trouble No wonder it was a battle
I was shining as bright as I could and barely casting shadows Thinking I could still hustle nothing wrong with flexing muscle Whole time I didnt trust You and the words that I read That said you really cared Knew me to the core
Had my number down to the very hair But You were always there in the air I breathe Watching over me protecting me from these evil things Lesson learned
Some things You knew I needed to see in order to produce a change in me And finaly now im starting to see
Inadvertantly I thank you G I pray for you hope you pray for me Might never see a day in this life where we make things right between us But you best believe ima catch you on the other side in the midst of Jesus shrugging off these trivial reasons that brought us about these problems in the first place If saints can't even get along why would anybody want to jump on and ride this thing on out to the end you called me brother I called you friend even went as far as twin said you loved me I believed you then?

I'll go ima give it all and I won't slow
Ima show the world what they don't know
Ima be the one ima be the one when im done
When I make it higher If I made it this far
I can make it anywhere
Track Name: Highway 2 Life
Well I know iv'e done things that hurt you lord
I even spoke words against you Lord
And even though I turned my back you was with me Lord
I thank God for the gifts that You give me Lord
I serve one God He's a God thats alive
And I pray when people look at me they see You in my eyes
How many times have I failed fall flat upon my face
Tripping over my own shoestrings I never bothered to lace
Thats a metaphor I use to describe my wicked days
To busy with the world I was caught up in it's ways
Like i'm running in a race and i'm taking last place
To You Lord I swear I must be such a disgrace
But through the love of Your Son and His amazing grace
All my sins have been forgotten everyone has been erased
Now it's heaven I can taste I proclaim this is true
I'm an heir to The Kingdom and so are all of you


I can still remember a time God wasn't always on my mind
in fact I pushed Him back behind and I couldn't wait to cut in line
just to cut my own throat then I wish I could go back in time
cause thats when I was spiritually broke
Oh how I hope that ya'll hear this then recognize sincereness
Good bye to this world yep I tell it good riddance
Besides who wants rags when they could have riches
Lord this is my prayer it's a prayer of repentance
I'm sick of straddling both sides of the fences
And through my offenses I've been living deaths sentence
Could I ask ya'll to listen and please pay attention
Take a look at the world cause somethings been missing
Take a look at our children some still covered and dirty
and they'll continue hurting cause thy don't know Jesus
And thats just the way it's gone be unless we intercede
And by we I mean you and I and her and he

You reap what you sow I speak what I know
as for me and my family we keep the Lord close
See this body is the host I love the Holy Ghost
He the one inspired me to write the words I wrote
So if you were to die today where would you go
Is it a guess are you sure I mean do you really know
As for me I need certainty cause eternity is certainly
To long for me to keep on burning my soul
And if you feel the same well with both eyes closed
After a set I show you a prayer yeah I teach you how it goes
Then we'll say welcome to the family so glad to see you make it
Us in Christ we've been waiting here oh so patient
And were trying to reach a world that seems just beyond our nation
Through these trials and tribulations you got to stay faithful
Cause no matter what your facing see His word says this
Invite Christ in now the next lifes Bliss
Track Name: Gasoline
I noticed you noticing me
From across the room Could I be deceived
My heart skips a beat It's so hard to believe
If i'm on fire i'm on fire because your gasoline

Let me remind you that I don't mind if
You don't mind if we toss our cares aside
Let me remind you that I don't mind if
You don't mind if we toss our cares aside
Because I don't want to spend another night like this
Broken hearted full of emptiness
Can't you hear me crying through the night
Eyes open and i'm searching for your light

Wonder where you are
Wonder where you've been
Wonder what it is you hide behind those eyes
Everytime I feel like this again
I know I either need to check myself
Or Check my friends

Let me remind you that I don't mind if
You don't mind if we toss our cares aside
Let me remind you that I don't mind if
You don't mind if we toss our cares aside
Because I don't want to spend another night like this
Broken hearted full of emptiness
Can't you hear me crying through the night
Eyes open and i'm searching for your light
Track Name: Battle With The eNemy
I battle with the enemy and yes I bear scars
Yes yes I bear scars,yes yes I bear scars
Walk a narrow path and yes it has been hard
Yes yes it has been hard,Yes yes it has been hard

It's the scream of an angel thats piercing through my dreams
Probably the reason that I keep on sweating up my sheets
And this is what they telling me Alias stay focused
Go ahead and copy cat yeah I really hope you quote this
This world will chew you up spit you out until your
Choked Broke and Hopeless
Well Lord i'm finally broken and i'm hoping that i'm open
So in this battle of principalities I struggle for control
Every time I think I have it grab it slips and then lets go
So i'm writing this song to the lover of my soul
How long until your coming cause i'm really missing home
Been stripped of my family two beautiful babies and a wonderful lady
And i'm feeling so alone that it's driving me crazy
Allow me to illustrate how I spend my days lately
Frustrated with my face on the floor
Praying Lord take this pain
Because I can take no more


I battle with the enemy and yes I bear scars
Yes yes I bear scars,yes yes I bear scars
Walk a narrow path and yes it has been hard
Yes yes it has been hard,Yes yes it has been hard


Abara cadabara but this is not no magic
No tricks no gimmicks no flowers no rabbits
Just a addict with a habit it's Your word I gotta have it
So I snatch it then I grab it and if it's not your word
Then I crumble it and trash it and if You will it someday
This right here might just become a classic
But i'm not greedy so I pass it
But before I do I'd like to share with you
This light inside of me thats so evident
In fact my friends I think thats why they call it evidence
To me it's something Heaven sent
So tell me have you ever been
In a battle with the enemy in which you bear scars
Have you walked a narrow path tell me has it been hard
Would you place on your armor and march into war
Could you sustain these injuries and still ask for more
These are all things you need to ask yourself
Before you open the door
Because I've battled with the enemy and yes I bear scars
See I've walked a narrow path and yes it has been hard
And ain't nothing in this world that compares to serving God
Thats why i'm out here in these streets battling demons with my squad


I battle with the enemy and yes I bear scars
Yes yes I bear scars,yes yes I bear scars
Walk a narrow path and yes it has been hard
Yes yes it has been hard,Yes yes it has been hard
Track Name: Lets Go
Came here to praise so lets get started
If you got eternal life shout I got it
You got it thats good thats what I want to hear
Now lets praise God since were all here
No place for drama No time for fear
Cheer up your life wipe away your tears

Do the best I can till your path is clear
Besides I dont mind helping you out

Giving you love to replace all your doubt

But hold on hold on God will show the way how

Halleleuijah x4

Party jumped off and were feeling real good
Christian techno do you think I should
Alias killed it like you knew he would
Could somebody anybody snatch this mic
Iv'e been known to get rowdy and make crowds hype
Doesn't really matter if it's day or night
Long as theres energy know it's alright
See God made stars and stars make light
So even through the darkness you can still find light
And if that dont leave you feeling good well that aint right
Who said you couldnt have fun in church look at him now
Just eating those words give me a beat
I provide the nouns and verbs I use music as a way to serve
So with your hands to the sky raise your voice high

3rd verse Feat. ICRIS

It goes left foot right foot hold up lets do work
And make your body twerk
Cast your cares and drop your hurts
As I disperse this verse at a 1000 mhtz
Let my network make your necks jerk
When you pump this in your whip you cant help help it
As ICRIS spit sick with flows that flip scripts and lift your spirits
As your body takes a trip as I slip words thru my lips
That make you move your hips how about this
Every 16 is produced by Rich gets ripped
Iv'e been dipped in living water by the father
By our Father to further with a fervor a fever
That makes every track we drop hot
Like when you wear wool socks on your block
And it's a 100 degrees out

Halleleuijah x4
It goes left foot right foot get up out your stand
And lets go lets go rock it for the Lamb
With your hands to the sky raise your voice high
Tonight were praising him the God most high

It goes left foot right foot get up out your stand
And lets go lets go rock it for the Lamb
With your hands to the sky raise your voice high
Tonight were praising him the God most high

It goes left foot right foot get up out your stand
And lets go lets go rock it for the Lamb
With your hands to the sky raise your voice high
Tonight were praising him the God most high

left foot right foot lets go left foot right foot lets go
LETS GO LETS GO LETS GO
