Track Name: The Ascent
My hands have been trained battle
My fingers made for war
My heart filled with passion
For a beauty worth fighting for
My feet are sure and steady
My grip is tried and true
My protectors surround me closely
As enemies plot my doom
There’s a hunger deep inside
my soul says it’s dinner time
As I approach the path that's laid with both eyes on the finish line
There’s a moment I recline second guessing my gusto
But I can’t deny the forward voice Will I make it I must know
I refuse to live from a place of fear safety is not my home
And there’s a courage I don’t possess I know it’s not my own
Before I ascend I must go deep to release the promises buried
Resurrect the sacrifices of those who passed before me
Love compels to the lowest parts where the treasure to rise is found
For the depth and height are equally true
In glory extending from ground
Empower me with the grace I need
to finish strong and see this through
To not give up under the test of tension
The pain of pressing cause I know it's you
With me
I do not climb alone
I do not fight solo
I will defy gravity
And I will win
Track Name: Watch'em Do It
When they tell you that’s a pipe dream
Stick to your creed like Nicene
or Apollo
Like fighting Drago
And victory got flavors
You can taste when they go bravo
Sideline haters looking like Jafar and Yago
If they say you can’t do it
Then consider it done
If You can see it in your mind
You got the vision to run
Too much potential
In this temple
To simply settle for less
Everything you put your hands
Multiplies cause it’s blessed

Deep down do you know you got it
When the pressure on
4 seconds left
And everybody watching
When they pass the rock
And you release
But will it drop in
When the buzzer beats
Was the shot locked in
Or will you freeze
Ain’t nobody breathe
This your only option
Victory is yours
It’s just a moment away.
And We already won
We just a second delayed
If you only knew
You got everything you need
Take a long look in the mirror
And tell me that you believe
Track Name: Fake Money
You might have a lot of people fooled. But not me!
But not me. I see through it. Fake Money!

I know a man who never sinned. HUH?
He took my deeds and gave me His. HUH?
He told me never sin again. Like What?
Oooh we bout to start a trend. Come Up! Come Up!
Counterfeit currency certainly a murder scene
Tricky on the surface with purpose appearing perfectly
Take a peek to search and see and soon discern the perjury
Where curtains bleed with hidden schemes to burn you with the third degree
Shadrach in the furnace, Meshach popping kernels. Abednego said fire it up
Cause Jesus up in here turnin.
Nebuchadnezzar will never impress us with statues or weapons
we catching a blessing Skrrrrr
Heir to the king so my pockets is fleek and I am not flexing

They tried to tempt me with money
Almost got me with them honeys
Been trained up for the real deal
Yeah Papa ain't raise no dummy
Gotta good wife she rocked up
4 times done knocked up
Gotta dope team we flocked up
My shot clutch when the clocks up
That's fools gold you flashing
Fast talking with your hands up
But you and I know who my Dad is
Got Mansions for the fam tough
I'm so rich on this son ship
Him and I yeah we run this
That royal blood running my veins
Humble king serving up love yep

Fake Money
Fake money
Why you over here
tryna spend this fake money with me
Fake money
Fake money
Throw it in the air make it rain
and start running for the real
Track Name: Doorstep
I know you hear me at your doorstep
Why won't you let me in
I don't want to force my way in
but something's gotta give

I know you scared
It's hard for you to trust another
Burned too many times
By the words of those who supposed to love ya
Knock knock this is not a joke
You know my voice and tone
I even tried to ring your phone
I know

I know you hear me on the other side
Cause I hear you breathing
I promise this the real deal
You know that I ain't leaving
Turn a dark room Into a place of feasting
Take every heart wound and replace with freedom
This is healing season you know you know
Track Name: Introspective
Lot of us know a God who is more like Zeus
high on the throne with His book of rules
Looking through a lens of platonic view
Influence thought with distorted truth
If God is love then He can’t be solo
When love requires us someone to co know
...Repeat it in slow mo
When Love requires us someone to co know
Before creation this union existed
...designed in their image
Encrypted in code….written uniquely
Without expectation you gave us so freely
Knowing that some... would turn from the kindness
Still you pursue as we hold up our blinders.
...Still you remind us
That even your wrath is a siren of kindness
A siren of kindness
A passionate no to the things that will bind us

Religion demands that we love with perfection
When really you search for a heart of reception
Someone who lays on the altar of lovers
Glory consuming so awesome with wonder.
Remember that summer you called me beloved
You wrecked me forever now go back is never
Now go back is never
The God I made up in my mind has been severed
Reckless endeavors to stand at the entrance
And hope that you notice a wretch in your presence
A wretch in your presence
If really Im honest with current perceptions
If really I’m honest with my own reflection
I’m closer to death Than to your resurrection.

And still you pursue me in my imperfections.

So often I made you a notch and a checklist
A dance and a song and I hope you accept it
When really you love me and never expect it
But you never reject it
You sit and you clap
As you smile as you listen to my little gestures
Who made this illusion with all of its pressure

You tell me practice and keep getting better
though I perform with the heart of a jester
Help me to see me as more than a step son
Repeated attempts to measure up nexta

All of these efforts you really detest em
A standard perfection you never requested
You never requested
A thing but my heart in response to your blessing.
Just Honest connection
The way lovers dance at a wedding reception
And all the guests watch as the two move in step with
...The rhythms of grace… glasses all raised
toast to the bride and the groom face to face
Eyes intertwined in the deepest of ways
In to me you see the shame
quick to pull a blade project my inner pain
made a God in my image so quick at throwing shade.
Quick at throwing shade
No match for your face that radiates grace
shadows do a dash like they running a race
Yeah They running for safe
masterpiece me God chisel away.
Track Name: My King
What kind of king wears a crown of thorns
He lays his life down for the ones he loves
What kind of king comes down from his throne
To make a way for a man like me
That's my King the righteous ruler
He gave it all for me
That's my King my redeemer
if anybody asks you tell em that's my King

If you don’t know who I’m talking about
that’s the king of kings not to laugh about
The bread of life passing rations out
Supply never dry get your basket out
I bet you never thought I’d take the Pastor route
Made more disciples got a mass amount
River with flow how we flash a drought
Liquid in the house got cash accounts
Wait for the return the way Elastic bounce
Devil done lost shooting Plastic rounds
As we count cost laying Passions down
Make way for the King palm branches out
If We don’t shout then the rocks are loud
Bigger than Coachella how He flocking crowds
Bet ya next year they be jocking sounds
I Do it for the King Hashtag I’m out
Track Name: Highly Grounded
Why am I so high yet my feet are on the ground
I must be in heaven far above the clouds
Lifted in your love with my feet planted firm
Tethered to the truth that I find in your words

I am just like you
I am just like you
In every single way
I am just like you

They say I’m crazy thinking I could be like God
You told me we are one I read it there in John
I heard it from your voice your Spirit spoke it to my heart
We are one, you are my son. Now go and play your part.
Its hypostatic by the union we exist
I am a vessel of His glory as He gives
I think it’s time we lift the veil and take the ownership
Temple of His Spirit manifest instead of quoting scripts
They searched the word for life and couldn’t recognize
Son of man came in flesh and stood in plain sight
Rejected revelation Holy Spirit testifies.
Blind brood of vipers dare to question who am I

They say I’m looney thinking i could heal the blind
He told me that we could right there Luke 10 and 9
Some think it’s blasphemy to walk just like my Father
Listen this is all I know How could I do it any other
Sinner saved by grace who I was I am no longer
Stronger in the faith and He will finish what He authored
As long I abide I will produce these fresh creations
And duplicate His love across the globe to many nations
If only you could see yourself from Papa God’s perspective
Then you would see that you and him are really quite reflective
He made you in His image that is not just a cute scripture
That’s realer than the ceiling that you standing on He lift ya”

Ya see you can only be like Jesus
to the measure of faith that you already are.
I cannot be more or less like Jesus than I already am today.
Tomorrow will not change that. You see we forget that identity is not determined by behavior but Identity proceeds behavior. You wanna be more like Jesus we’ll wake up and realize that He has already given you His Spirit, His glory, His likeness And everything you will ever need to be.
Track Name: Teach Me How To Love
If He calls us sons and daughters
How He longs for you to come
How much more will the Father
Give us the Spirit if we ask

Write Your word upon the tablet
Of my heart I won’t forget
Oh my soul thirsts for You Lord
Just how deep calls to deep

Teach me how to love Like the Father
Teach me how to love Like the Son
Teach me how to love Like your Spirit
Teach me how to love Like You Do

Teach us Teach us
How to love like You

Your love is jealous for me always
Furiously in pursuit
If a man could ever purchase
He’d sell everything he owned

Teach us teach us
To love or else they won't believe us
Are we deceived to
Think that we could just release it
Without receiving
Like skipping steps and procedures
Banned from the garden but never taken from Eden
Can't escape the tent of meetings
So I stay seated
He commanded me to be loved
And so I heed it.
The branches abide by high design in the vine
So we recline sipping fine wine sign of the times
Supply never depleted.
Hoorah never defeated
Advance the kingdom led by Jesus
The only who could teach us
To love so they believe us
Do you believe us
Teacher teach us
Spirit leads us
Father free us
Track Name: Illuminate
From sunrise to sunset
I haven’t seen one yet
Identical to the one next
Set in motion by one yes
Light sparked as you spoke
Hexicolors with blue notes
Brighter than art by gusto
A world marked by true hope

When I see you
I will be like you
Face to face
I was made to be like you
Made to Shine like you
Illuminate like you

When you see me
Looking just like you
Same fire
Burning bright like you
Made shine like you
illuminate like you

Flood this house with your light
Radiate you fill the sky
Your love is strong to purify

You illuminate this place
Your goodness shines on me
And these shadows have to leave
Your face shines on me
You illuminate this place

When they see me
Do they see you
Filled with your light
I was made to be like you
Illuminate just like you
I Was made to be like you
You lift us up
you set us high
A city in a hill built in plain sight
They come from miles captivated by the shine

His Luminescence
Remove depression
Here’s a room to rest in
That’s true repentance
70 x 7 to
Resume the blessing
It’s overwhelming
In your presence When you loose the tension
I’m content at the entrance
Yet you share the kingdom
From the tomb you descended
To the lowest parts with a torch like
And You knew how to get home
Cause papa left on the porch light
Then 10 days went by in the upper room made the core shine
Tongues of fire fell and rested on the team a for sure sign
Track Name: The One You Love
I’m living proof that love is real
Watch my life you might catch a feel
lifetime movie with mass appeal
How love transforms

You see I can try to leave but could never escape
And love would chase me down when I ran away
Remind me who I am when we face to face
Your love transforms

Fear has to leave when I am lost in your love.
I am over my head in grace.
And all my doubt disappears when I am covered in truth
why would I move from this place.

I’m the one You love I am Your favorite one
Your goodness keeps me close
I’m the one You love I am Your favorite one
You never let me go

If I’m being honest
I am scared of love
Cause love is light
and reveals it all
What else can I lose
but everything I am
Show me whats real

But you see through it all
Past the flesh and bones
Right into my heart
Piercing to my soul
You call me up
Yes love calls me higher

What if I should fall
You already on the ground
Ima risk it all
surrender here and now
Covered in the truth
Love makes me brand new
Track Name: Daily ID
I went from who am I to who I am
An orphan mind to a mighty Lion
Habitual liar to glory reciter
Ooh I’m excited to tell you bout my archetype.
You see Adam was just the proto
And sold his ID for some fruit of the looms
Then Israel traded God’s plan for a Drake song on repeat for 40 years
Till Jesus sold himself for 30 pieces and a hilltop view
So I could sit beside Him with this 20/20 vision
So we could rule the Kingdom with a heavenly perspective
You revealed your name to Moses as the only name I could use to make a personal declaration.
My ID is duplicated but never replicated
Genetic code rewritten creation stands in awe.
I am something they never seen before.
This is my Daily ID every morning got a new song on repeat
40 years in the making to complete the repertoire
Then one day my memory lapsed.
A momentary delusion of confusion
So I ran laps around my memories singing
I am who He says I am. I am who He says I am
You try it.
I am who he says I am. I am who he says I am.
And you don’t get to tell me different.
Now every lie that used to boast in accusations
crumbles under the glow of my Holy Ghost.
You see they tried to tell me that my ID expired last December
They told me I couldn’t travel without a passport
They told me I couldn’t serve God with my track record.
So I ran laps around that track singing
Who the Sons sets free is free indeed.
Who the son sets free is free indeed
Who the son sets free is free indeed
Then my memory lapsed on all the times they used to disqualify my name. indeed
Who You say I am is all I ever need to be. indeed
You call me son, beloved, Your favorite. Indeed
My ID runs deep. Ingrained in my DNA indeed.
Scribed on the heart that pumps Grace In my veins indeed.
In Your name indeed. By Your word indeed. My ID runs deep.
Say something!
Go ahead and tell me who you think I AM
And I will run a memory lapse around you till every thought
Is shackled and taken captive to my salvation.
Don’t play with my ID.
