lyrics

Verse 1

No sorry please thank you apologies needed
Coz I’m here and I’m breathing till the moment that I’m leaving
No question, flow open in the session
Got the flood gates channelling an unknown expression

With permission to open up the doors of my vocal cords
Speak the sound out with focus when I know my course,
Only walk with my words on this path
When I’m dam sure they’re marching as a servant to the art,

Cracked lips still thirsting for my part
I’m linking footprints it’s hard work in this craft
Burning a path/ down through the surface with a spark
I hold it close as a flame while I journey in the dark,

Keep it shining bright/ I’ll be grinding
while I’m gripping the on iron of this 16 bar cage,
Sweat dripping on the words written on my last page
Bars break when I hear my heart say...

Chorus
I'm Here,
I am here,
Till the minute that I disappear
Listen to the truth through the middle of the noise let it whisper in my ear
I am Here
I am Here right here
I am here
Till the minute that I exit stage left take a breath in my chest and every day say yes I am here!

I am here

Verse 2


Now I'm thinking where I've been man
still I'm holding up this weight above any given place where my feet stand
I take this chance to express
as I'm dropping off another dam bag of regrets yep

I've seen best friends come and gone,
and where the love is lost
left with a hole in my life
try ta fill it while I'm holding the mic for another song

it's all equal and opposite
fuck oath I know the cost of it
it's written on the docket shit
I'm talking 29 rhymes book and 10 years
plus blood sweat and hell fucken yes tears

just to get here/ throw down my two cents
and bang it on the track with the truth till the loop ends
for what it's worth and shit, and is it worth this shit?,
ahh trust me I questioned that question just as far as the question goes,
then I took a step
and let it go, as I turned with a shoulder
that was colder than the metal on my 3rd eye telescope,
as I focus on the future called the never known
forever know I give it all I am or you'll never know

Chorus

I'm Here,
I am here,
Till the minute that I disappear
Listen to the truth through the middle of the noise let it whisper in my ear
I am Here
I am Here right here
I am here
Till the minute that I exit stage left take a breath in my chest and every day say yes I am here!

Verse 3

tense in my shoulders plus knots in my neck,
the future did warn me with the promise of regret
so I'm shaking on the hands of my fears with a firm grip
and now my words hit
with wisdom in the quotes that'll linger on my lips like the feeling of a first kiss …

I'm submerged in the search with
a glimmer of a hint where my soul lies
give my whole life
grinding down underneath the surface like a fault line

from the first statement, ta get the verse
earth quaking right through the surface of the culture when the tunes explode
light it up with blueish glow
so I can find a way ta follow where my music roams
ride through this globe

I hold a run way vision
of a one way ticket

and my chance to get my hand on mics
desperate for this life like a leper for the hand of christ so

Chorus
I'm Here!
I am here,
Till the minute that I disappear
Listen to the truth through the middle of the noise let it whisper in my ear
I am Here
I am Here right here
I am here
Till the minute that I exit stage left take a breath in my chest and every day say yes I am here!

I am here
