Written by: T. Hardson/Angel C. (Emi Blackwood Music Inc./Bridges In Babylon Music (BMI), Supa Crucial Music (BMI)) Coming from a place of peace Gotta keep it all together (Together) Change your heart and shape the weather Change your mind and make it what? See, I’m coming from a place of peace I gotta keep it all together Change your heart and shape the what? I guess I've let the world effect me and people correct me For the wrongs that could have been right half the night I stayed up screamin' when I could have been dreamin' Spilling all of these who's and what's like a night owl Moonlight beaming on the walls casting shadows on the wall Like ping pongs with spike paddles See the players never cared about the rules of the game Modified all the books and now all the tools changed Even cool individuals start to act strange And nowadays I keep 'em all at close range Come to find out you see this whole game Has nothing to do with the passion of our whole aim So I was like what the ****? Who the ****? Where the **** do we all begin? I can't run the same laps around the same bend Without changing the patterns of the man within I’m like what the ****? (Say what?) Who the ****?

Change your mind and make it betta Can’t be dealing with it Way I’m feeling it I'll be damned if I work another nine to five Just trying to barely stay alive in this rat race Wake up every morning with a wack face ‘Cause the boss (Hey, how’s it going?) on the job really lacks taste and compassion I feel like shssh, thanks for askin' As I turn my clown mask in Punch the clock out, let the jazz rock out Before I lose my cool and get your uh-huh knocked out Or locked up it ain't worth all the bucks If it don't don’t make you feel love struck True hearts are never stuck it's the grace of the true self That, that woke me up I’m like like what the ****? Who the ****? Where the **** do we all begin? I can't run the same laps around the same bend Without changing the patterns of the man within I’m like what the ****? (Say what?) Who the ****?

See a little seagull On a marble stand Trying to find the ocean Lookin' everywhere Hard times in the city In a hard town by the sea Ain't nowhere to run to There ain't nothin' here for free Copper on the corner Waiting for a train Drunk lyin' on the sidewalk Sleeping in the rain Good people hide their faces And they hide their eyes ‘Cause the city's dying And they don't know why Baltimore Ain't it hard just to live Baltimore Ain't it hard just to live, just to live Get my sister Sandy and my little brother Ray Buy a big old wagon to haul us all away Live out in the country Where the mountain's high Never comin' back here 'til the day I die Baltimore Ain't it hard just to live Baltimore Ain't it hard just to live, just to live Just to live Hard just to live Hard just to live Hard just to live Hard just to live Hard just to live Hard just to live Baltimore Baltimore Live

Written By: M. Ludlum / Angel C. (Rude Gal Music ASCAP / Supa Crucial Music BMI) My way of loving you Is like bullets in the rain Ain't a single place to hide I'll always see you again You should really stop Denyin' yourself Of the sweeter things in life That can't be bought with wealth Cuz we're a priceless gift Undefined by reason You should know Uncontrolled by seasons I'd bleed myself Into a eastern ocean Turn the world red To express my devotion Cuz loving you is like Everyday sacred If only you could see that Maybe we could make it I feel like I'm hanging in the coldest breeze At the whim of your emotion I'm apt to freeze Become the queen of pain With an ice dusted throne To freeze the sting Of the passion I own 365 We equal 360 I hope you know Cuz cuz 'Cause you and me were meant to be, destiny Truth complete, you and me, destiny Wanting you is like the Sun behind the clouds Endlessly burning Silent and proud Perhaps me, I'm just Deceiving myself I should be running away To try to save myself Cuz the world is crazy It's a dangerous place To love these days And keep the faith The taste of my desire Is truly bittersweet Having no satisfaction But with no defeat Wanting you is like Half of completion Knowing what I need But it's out of my reach 'n' I'm constantly breathin' With a pain in my chest Like I'm condemned to roam, in a zone With no rest I confess I'm strung out Addicted to believin' That you might one day Kiss my tears because you've seen That I love you You're necessary as breath You should know Cuz, cuz, cuz 'Cause you and me were meant to be, destiny Truth complete, you and me, destiny Needing you is like Hunger with no name Endlessly aching with No words to explain Suffering, simply It's become a meditation That exists solely to soothe And inspire my patience Some days I awaken Thinking To love you like I do In some way I've been forsaken I dutifully pray Never missing a word To my Milagras and candles Hoping I'm heard Cuz I can't see Leaving this earth Without some kind of relief How long can it hurt? I send out this message A prayer in song form That you will one day Love me back to being warm You just need to understand Some things are in stone And in God's eyes I'm sure we belong Together That's not in the control of us That you should know Cuz, cuz, cuz 'Cause you and me were meant to be, destiny Truth complete, you and me, destiny
