Out of the Dark
Death is trapped in my head, in a prisoner's bed
I've become a victim of dread until I'm clinically dead
Fearing the day that I die and embracing the times
Heaven's a haven in the skies to escape from our lives
I'm living the dream cuz of the nightmare of reality
That practically every day passes me, is this my last to breathe?
It's not the thought of being dead, it's heading into the light
And out of the dark is the unknown, I'm so consumed with fright
Every time I wake up I speak praise for each day
But the truth is I don't appreciate, it's cliche
Sometimes I catch myself too often watchin' the second hand
Cuz life's a scary roller coaster like ridin' at Neverland
It seems insae to complain about my achin' and pains
While the day remains when my remains will be wasting away
There's no need to live in fear, I know the end is near
I just hate that I have no idea when the hell it's here
And if I live my life I have so much less to fear
Everything's in focus, it's become forever clear


Descriptive misdirection, industry saturated
Whatever niggas buildin' I'm leaving dilapidated
Sacred meaning the bars, swinging a sword at stars
I'm walking with battle scars from battling with my scars
Hard as you've ever seen, but seeing me is a chore
Forgive me for my yawning but rappers today are bores
And I'm walking through closed doors, mind's a skeleton key
My brain is a broken prism, more colorful when I free
Should I, flinch at the facts of niggas is throwin disses?
No I laugh at their subliminals, really they're blowin kisses
You can miss me with that wack shit, keep it strictly with rhymes
Cuz I'll dead you in the streets, you'll figure me out in time
Lines like coke abusers and pipes like Roto Rooters
Hard bodied and I'm smart, you need soldiers and tutors
Really I'm like the Sooners, graphic as Dexter murders
I knock my conscience unconscious to take it a little further
Kansas City got a king, consider S.H.A.D.O.W. the President
A Spartan like I'm Darwin, I'm never out of my element


(Keith Terry)
So many questions seeping all over the surface
Am I worth it? Determines the verse that I'm immersed in
And throughout all the struggles, the songs that hit the hardest
Are the ones where I'm the artist making sure my name is never tarnished
I let out more emotion than the pad and pen can handle
You can't teach my passion to anyone with any manuel
But every single time, that I try and go for mine
I'm told to back down my emotions because "rappers don't cry"
I'm not a rapper then I craft with proper precision
A laser equipped Bic pen, and a sonar guided mission
I've seen family members squander musical vision
With cubicle livin and, never will I be there with em
I work too hard, and still I'm underrated
My elation hasn't faded, I won't quit til I'm the greatest
If my tears rule me out for a record label deal
Then I'll accept that fact, but I'll never keep my heart concealed
It'll never be concealed
