    • Lyrics for "Alright Now"

    [Javier Starks]
    Jegna still on a search to find me, but only G.O.D. can provide me with I.D... confined to the drama you find in the streets, the crime and the poverty combined equal grief... who am I to judge? "Yo" I'm a lion amongst sheep trying to remain aligned with the meek, who shall inherit the earth in time we will see, who'll be the bearers of truth or the sign of the beast... we were designed to be free from earth to the heavens ground to the sky sky to the sea the cycle's extreme kids play with chalk, but the police use chalk lines for deceased. I wonder if its how its supposed to be, God honest, I can't tell a con artist from a priest. signs of the times signs in the east they can't hold me back the blood of the king has signed my release, I'm trying to find inner peace

    I'm trying to find inner peace

    Cain slew Abel (shheessh) its crazy, strange how strangers can come of best friends (yessir) connivers think they set to win... I get my second win get right i make moves they getting left again. I appreciate it, God keep stepping in, I stumble in his footprints trying to set precedents swear I'm headed to heaven after the day of reckoning I've never been a pessimist but stressing if they'll let him in...

    I'm living life on the edge who said it was troublesome only a glutton for punishment would understand where I'm coming from. Realistically there's no tomorrow cause nothing's guaranteed striving for sanity through calamity know the horror. I know the odds of winning are slim but I pay'm no regard I'll win if it costs me everything I own I'll disown it all. everything has a purpose and everyday on the surface I carry the weight of the world and so my shoulders strong! They can't replace him on a song I claim my place among the stars my faith is awesome embracing greatness with Open arms

    I love every second, life is beautiful. Life is beautiful I owe you God

    Him being anybody who's living his messages... On earth I cherish life because they threaten it..

    [Bella]
    Grinding in the dust
    Survival is a must

    [Javier]
    The truth's found in places I've never been...
    And ignoring my ignorance is deadly as those seven sins

    [Bella]
    So
    Show me, teach me, make me, mold me
    Into an image brand new

    [Javier]
    The truth's found in places I've never been...
    And ignoring my ignorance is deadly as those seven sins

    [Bella]
    I think you better
    Show me, teach me, make me, mold me
    Into an image brand new

    [Javier]
    I lift my hands up high, I lift my hands up high

    [Bella]
    Looking to the sun I see
    A man who loves me openly
    Despite my flaws and imperfections, he loves me for me

    [Javier]
    I lift my hands up high and give praise, give thanks, I'm happy to be living another day...
