Track Name: Chronic Intoxication
[Chorus]

Yo it’s a chronic intoxication

The rhythms of the mind got your heartbeat racing

Yo it’s a chronic intoxication

Free yourself of limits, never stop so place them

Yo it’s a chronic intoxication

The music of the mind got your heartbeat racing

Said that it’s a chronic intoxication

Free yourself of limits so you’ll never stop

[Verse 1]

This reminds me of old times,
the mind is a terrible thing

I never thought that I’d rise to be a lyrical king
But yo to everyone’s surprise I’m alive and kicking

Got a voyeuristic mind, I gotta watch what I’m thinking
My reflections are eternal, Kweli told me once in a song
It might as well have been a gift from the gods

There’s certain lessons that I’ve taken to the grave
Yo enough of it all, give me the ball,
let me take it to the paint

I don’t feel any pain, I won’t suffer defeat

The word is on the street that you worry bout Nieve

The world is at his feet,
that one two that you had to run through

Put you in a coma, you can’t come to

Look at what you done to me

Turned me from an everyday beauty
to a modern day beast.
Yo they call it a disease,
I say it’s from the earth
so I breathe, let me be
yo, you know what it be

[Chorus]

Yo it’s a chronic intoxication

The rhythms of the mind got your heartbeat racing

Yo it’s a chronic intoxication

Free yourself of limits, never stop so place them

Yo it’s a chronic intoxication

The music of the mind got your heartbeat racing

Said that it’s a chronic intoxication

Free yourself of limits so you’ll never stop

[Verse 2]

I’m living quicker than the grace note

Race through the wrinkles in time

My blurry vision keeps me blind from a beautiful mind
I can’t capture any words along my way throughout these chapters

I'm trapped behind the back page,
cascades of past ways
and young thoughts,
we used to have those big smiles

We were still so many miles from a broken heart

But nowadays we never think about the change

we only know who we’ve became
really ain’t the same.
I remember all those red brick buildings on the corner
Used to stop the traffic when we held the microphone up
, although it was a phony,
our cuffed hands and a tight fist

Made believed that a microphone exist

We would spit until the daylight dropped

Philosophize about our day,
contemplated on the way to the park
The wait of the dark is easy, homie, sit and relax

Finding light though is really the task, puff and pass.

[Chorus]

Yo it’s a chronic intoxication

The rhythms of the mind got your heartbeat racing

Yo it’s a chronic intoxication

Free yourself of limits, never stop so place them

Yo it’s a chronic intoxication

The music of the mind got your heartbeat racing

Said that it’s a chronic intoxication

Free yourself of limits so you’ll never stop

[Verse 3]

Yo I need a little bit more,
won’t get rid of it all

I need some so I can fly,
be so high I can soar

I do it while I record
To make magic out of nothing at all

There's eight matches until one of them fall
I shake the ashes from a cigarette off

And what’s inside it ain’t a secret
Come and take a look
you'll get excited when you see it
Yo I write it like a mean it cause I live what I say

One hit will get you lifted away,
let’s take a different way

From what the others in the world might choose

If we follow all their moves, then we all might lose
I’ll explore a different path in my all white shoes

And leave tracks for some alright grooves

I put myself out on all my tunes

and you can feel me if you listen

Flipping up my style, like Im changing my position
I'll continue on my mission till the list complete

Burn the bitterness of life through my Swisher Sweet.
Track Name: Midnight Baby
MIdnight Baby

Lyrics By Nieve, from the Album "Away With Words"

Hook:

Come on we going for a ride, don't be shy baby
You know I'll have you home on time, by midnight maybe
I put myself out on the line for the right lady
I want to know if you'll be mine, mine, mine. (X2)

Verse 1:

Excellence is all you ever sense from my wits and charm
I ain't one who ever slips or trips alarms
I just keeps my calm and exudes my cool
try to figure out the moves that get through to you

because I, see that you busy, your memory is fizzy
I ask you if you still remember me and if you miss me
and if not, why do you diss me
I mean the least that you could do is leave a clue, cuz

you in my hand is worth more then two in the bush
I got the girls who never call, and the ones who never look
thank God I never took my eye off you
matter of fact girl I heart you, I mean 'achoo'

I do, yo I really gotta run, I mean I knew that you knew,
but I sorta jumped the gun and now we through.
Leave all the presents in the chimney shoot
The only gift I really wanted was you.

Hook:

Come on we going for a ride, don't be shy baby
You know I'll have you home in time, by midnight maybe
I put myself out on the line for the right lady
I want to know if you'll be mine, mine, mine. (X2)

Verse 2:

Come on lets skip the chit chat, talkin bout this - that
all I see is you baby, break me off a kit-kat
Just keep your cool baby, mellow out and kick back
and pass the papers when you're through I'd like to hit that

The smoke signs speak the weight of my mind
I keep pressing on the lines of the great divine
trying to catch a glimpse of the great design
though I've seen it all before in your lips and thighs

Hypnotized you are hypnotized
take a look into my eyes and be mystified
we going to a ride where you wish to fly
and don't you worry about the waves, Im the 'prince of tides'

Aye-curumba! what was your number
it must've slipped my mind, so please pardon my slumber
and please forgive me, I ain't always this rude
its just whenever you're around it's like a moment of truth.
Track Name: Another Day Comes
"Another Day Comes"

[Intro]

Don't give up, don't give up
the sun is shining, keep on trying
Don't give up, don't give up
you will find your way as long as you don't give up (x2)

[Chorus]

Another day comes, yesterday’s gone 

We all gotta find our ways to stay strong 

Stay strong stay strong, together we’ll stay strong 

Let’s live let’s live before another day’s gone

Another day comes, yesterday’s gone 

We all gotta find our ways to stay strong 

Stay strong stay strong, together we’ll stay strong

Let’s live let’s live before another day’s gone

[Verse 1]

Another day has started coming 

And all the troubles in the world amount to nothing 

Past mistakes seem so close today

But life’s a stage and we part of the play

So pardon the ways that I always reminisce

From my last heart break to my very first kiss

It’s so very hard to distance myself from then

But, well my friends this time I begin 

Because a new day is coming, an old day is leaving 

I’m sick of being stuck in the past for no reason 

Wake up, spring into a new season

And let the summers fall like a winter’s ball

We all gotta rise up to the call

Life is a celebration, God like imagination

He also loves when you work for your own 

All of us are just notes in a beautiful song

[Chorus]

Another day comes, yesterday’s gone 

We all gotta find our ways to stay strong 

Stay strong stay strong, together we’ll stay strong 

Let’s live let’s live before another day’s gone

Another day comes, yesterday’s gone

We all gotta find our ways to stay strong 

Stay strong stay strong, together we’ll stay strong 

Let’s live let’s live before another day’s gone

[Verse 2]

The sun is shining so bright this morning 

Nothing’s going wrong, only right this morning 

This is for my friends, yo I write this for them 

They’re a part of me so I’d like to show them 

How much they mean in my life this moment 

They all play key vital component, and for

Whatever reason we don’t talk as often

Just know I never carry a grudge, it’s all love 

Cause a new day upon us, tomorrow’s never promised 
Yesterday’s a part of the past, don’t get caught up

Forget the worries that you thought up 

Leave all your troubles aside, they’re far behind 

Together we gonna take a ride on the present
moment, hold it, it’s such a blessing 

And don’t expect to answer all the questions 

Just keep an open mind and you'll always find

[Chorus]

Another day comes, yesterday’s gone 

We all gotta find our ways to stay strong

Stay strong stay strong, together we’ll stay strong

Let’s live let’s live before another day’s gone

Another day comes, yesterday’s gone 

We all gotta find our ways to stay strong 

Stay strong stay strong, together we’ll stay strong

Let’s live let’s live before another day’s gone

[Outro]

Im loving what my life has brought to me

I’m feeling like these song’s are a part of me

Something in the music’s calling me 

To play on, play on and on and on

Im loving what my life has brought to me 

I’m feeling like these song’s are a part of me 

Something in the music’s calling me 

To play on, play on and on and on.
