City lights chips away at the facade and gets to a deeper place in terms of spirituality. This is an attempt to make sense of the chaotic world and my relationship with my creator.

lyrics

CITY LIGHTS

I feel alone in this universe
Like I’m posted on Mars as the world turns
Awestruck staring at the son while they star struck
Diamonds in the rough barely glimmer
But we pause them
Cause a spectacle
Front row or lawn seat
They come to witness how
A rose grow from concrete
Lost a couple Knights sacrificed
a Queen but victory is sweeter when
you’re winning with a pawn piece
Talk is cheap but this testimony cost me
More than I can mention
many lessons from a dark street
Girl of my dreams pulling on my heartstrings
It’s impossible; I barely hear my heart beat
Swear to God I lost it on
the one that had my offspring
Summer, Fall, Winter now I’m
Pulling on my drawstrings
Funny how seasons bring new
Elements and lost leaves
Forever green droppin
Needles on these hard beats

(CHORUS)
Only hope in the end that I did it right
Hard to be an angel when you’re
living in a sinner’s life
Cause the city looks so pretty when
you’re high above the city lights
Only hope in the end that I did it right
Hard to be an angel when you
live a big city life
Cause the city looks so pretty when
you’re high above the city lights
(Repeat)

Is it me or is life a dichotomy
Every situation either adds
or takes a part of me
black or white easy but
the grey makes it hard to read
Tide makes the line in the sand
rather hard to see
I would rather set course to a calm sea
But the current status quo
Got me compromising me
Deed for your soul doesn’t
always have a dotted line
Fine print and verbiage confusing
You could lose your life
When you’re heaven turns to hell
And you’re in the flame
This is braille for the blind
Feel what I’m saying
Or do ills in the vein got you slippin
on materialistic mirages out in the distance
Only hope in the end that I did it right
Show my son how to shine
Brighter than these city lights
According to the Bible, you don’t
get to live it twice
Last time I close my eyes I hope my spirit flies

(CHORUS REPEATS)
