ON MY TRAVELS

Intro
yo, this is for every person
walking this earth, with a burden
on your back
you feel that it's strapped
and your knee caps might collapse
and when you look back
on the path of your past
all you see is a-a
shattered broken glass
sitting there, and you wonder
what will you do
how you gonna make it through
all this pain and this pressure
but you've got nothing to loose
so you walk on this journey
struggling surviving
today, we're with you
we're right by your side
speaking through the speaker
freeing you to fully thrive


Hook #1
I'm on my travels
and on my way
I'm on my journey
like every day
I can't sleep at night
cause I'm wide awake
and I'm trying to find my way
trying to find my way out


Verse 1
see I've got an artist's mind
so I see it in the skies
the rise of your cries
from atrocities and crimes
and I wonder why
do we suffer do we die
a sign of the times
or a symptom of our minds
that a third world loss
is just a business enterprise
sometimes
man I wish that I could fly
and glide
to a peaceful place to lie
recline
and watch the clouds in the sky


Verse 2
wether a system of hate
that you wish to escape
or the loss of a loved one
that made your heart break
walls are closing in
and there's too much at stake
well I'm here with you now
I'm sorry if I'm late
life is going fast
can't go back to erase
but my craft of the raps
on the tracks bring change
you laugh and you clap
to this jam in the rain
feeling bad? Well then dance
nothing stands in the way
though your feet and your ankles
feel tied, tight, and tangled
your purpose and potential
feel slow, stuck, strangled
your vision and perspective
should align at other angles
I speak it to the microphone
I know that you are able
ON MY TRAVELS (cont.)

Hook #2
I will walk on
and won't be stopped
I will climb up
and reach the top
I will walk on
and won't be stopped
I will climb up
and reach the top


Verse3
this track is for
the plight of all people
every single one
pushing back against the evil
up against the odds
like a haystack and a needle
and for those whose oppression
is considered legal
you cry out for help
but their assistance is feeble
charity's a loss
they want those profits looking regal
in my humble opinion
their business matters are fecal
they can keep their cursed ring
and live their life like Smeagol


Hook #2
I will walk on
and won't be stopped
I will climb up
and reach the top
I will walk on
and won't be stopped
I will climb up
and reach the top


Hook #1
I'm on my travels
and on my way
I'm on my journey
like every day
I can't sleep at night
cause I'm wide awake
and I'm trying to find my way
trying to find my way out
