Only See
Lyrics Written By: Jacob “ICEE JAKE” Bragg
Music Composed By: Sean Devine of NEXT LEVEL MUSIC PRODUCTIONS
Song and Artist are ASCAP Registered

It started out like any other day in my life in the morning stretchin and yawnin something aint feel right. These past couple months I been feeling a shame, feelin a change, alotta things running threw my brain, evil thoughts I cant explain maybe the devil made me do it, this alcoholic fluid in my body’s my influence. Now I’m all up on her, she all up on me, say’n her man don’t treat her right she wannabe free. All I’m askin is should I save her for real, cause she don’t really know me now, I’m thinkin that she chill.
She just wanna just to swim in the cesspool of this music, jump off the high dive into the hall of illusions.

(Chorus) You see the money
You see the glamour
You see the work
You see the canvas
You see the flashing lights not the camera
You only see what they want you to see (repeat twice)

I see em lookin at me, I know what they thinking, but its all good I give em patience,
I give you gratitude cuz everybody gotta issue, but not everybody got somebody that’ll listen. No matter the situation you facin you just gotta know that things aint always what they seem anymore. Everything is for show, just to cover up ya problems; they offer us liquor and drugs to try to solve em. Now it’s back to the same ole thing, don’t nobody wanna use their brains, too busy looking for fame and fortune missin the things that’s really important. You make’n me nauseous everything that you say, cuz everybody wanna party and not deal with the pain.
Now you looking for an escape another way to be free cuz everything aint as cool as it seems.

(Chorus) You see the money
You see the glamour
You see the work
You see the canvas
You see the flashing lights not the camera
You only see what they want you to see (repeat twice)

Hustle Up

Written By: Jacob “ICEE JAKE” Bragg

(Intro) I just wanta get away…get away…get away…

(Chorus) I just wanta get away I pray you understand, I gotta do what I gotta do to be a man.
I just wanta get away I pray you understand, I gotta do what I gotta do to be a man.

You don’t love me you just say’n that you do, all my nightmares comin all true.
All my dreams don’t make any sense, what you do, so I close my eyes and vent.
I’m a good person and I know it in my heart, but when people try to play me my soul turned dark. I’ve been hurt so many times I don’t know who I can trust, you can say I’m outta line but I’m never out of touch.
I’ve had enough with this world and the people that’s in it, when I say I keep it real you think its part of my image. I aint try’n to paint you a portrait you can see the picture, before you look at me take a glance in the mirror.
Don’t worry bout me you don’t care anyways, as long as you happy as long as you paid.
I’m just here when you need me but when I need you, you don’t wanna see me.

(Chorus) I just wanta get away I pray you understand, I gotta do what I gotta do to be a man.
Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up.
I just wanta get away I pray you understand, I gotta do what I gotta do to be a man.
Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up.

I wish I could fly, fly so far away way lord help me, I wish I could fly, fly so far away way lord help me.

Dear god can you hear me, I wonder why these frauds always near me. I wonder why I let these broads play games with my emotions, I’m losin hope in life so I’m hardly ever sober.
I call upon Jehovah, I know I need to get my life right before its over, cuz times getting colder. And people getting hungry doing whatever, so they can get a little money, I never been a dummy.
Real smart in the brain so I got the upper hand you will never understand the ways of man. Unless you walk in his shoes threw his land and made his moves. Until then you just confused lil homie, get ya hustle up pay ya dues lil homie.

Chorus) I just wanta get away I pray you understand, I gotta do what I gotta do to be a man.
Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up.
I just wanta get away I pray you understand, I gotta do what I gotta do to be a man.
Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up, Get ya Hustle up.

I wish I could fly, fly so far away way lord help me, I wish I could fly, fly so far away way lord help me. (Repeat and end with Chorus)

Open Ur Eyez

Written By: Jacob "ICEE JAKE" Bragg

I write what I believe on this loose leaf sheet,
then I speak it over beats so you can undastand me.
Everyday that I wake I thank the Lord that I’m here,
even though this past year I’ve been fight’n the idea
of life and what I want to do with mine,
I’m livin trife, I feel like I’m wasting time,
I can’t fight this feelin of being alone,
It aint right, no one to call my own,
But I’m cool, no need to stress myself,
if I’m real then I never can regret myself.
I’ve been holdin back this feelin for so long,
but when I reveal it for some reason I still feel wrong.
Its like a curse I let it flow out in a verse,
things been copasetic but I see’em getting worse.
Cause the weathers getting humid and the blocks is getting hotter,
and times are getting harder, so I’m lookin to the Father.

(chorus)
Dear Lord sitting up most high, can you help me open their eyez.
Everybody need help some time, {sometime} everybody need some piece of mind. {mind}{sometime}
(repeat chorus)

Nowadays I feel anxious it’s like I’m waitin,
for God to come down and take my mind away from Satan.
I’ve been praying and I thank’em everyday that I wake,
for keeping my heart beat’n through all my foolish mistakes.
I struggle with my emotions for the people I care for,
I just want you to be happy and know that I’m here for you.
To keep it all the way real I need ya’ll,
but times is complicated I don’t get to see ya’ll.
I just want to live right and have no regrets,
I just want to live life and see what’s next.
I feel hexed, cursed to be think’n the worst,
but death aint always with you in the back of a hearse.
Death can also mean you aint true to your word,
regret settles in and now you losin your nerve.
Dear Lord please settle my soul,
cause sometime I get cold I gotta break the Devils hold.

(chorus)
Dear Lord sitting up most high, can you help me open their eyez.
Everybody need help some time, {sometime} everybody need some piece of mind. {mind}{sometime}
(repeat chorus) Na-Na-Na [spoken word] [open up your eyez Na-Na-Na [open up your soul, let’em take control] Na-Na-Na (chorus) end

FAST LANE

Written By: Jacob “ICEE JAKE” Bragg

I feel something coming but it’s not quite clear, please lend me ya ear for a second my dear. Hopefully you can understand me, if not it’s cool just relax to this groove, let me talk to you. Take a walk threw my cerebellum on the outside I’m quiet but inside I’m yell’n. Feeling pathetic, I’m try’n not to sweat it, but pain can lead on more than let it. Years of denied love I can’t forget it, no matter what I do, I can’t deny the truth, cuz true love is a hard to thing come by. But when the other person don’t feel the same, some people cry and some people lie, just to get what they want, forget be’n honest they rather put on a front. People telling me I wear my heart on my sleeve, I let it bleed it over these beats, so maybe then you can see. Real speech, all I ever said from the get-go, liquor get em gassed up, call them hoes get-go. Ok no need for me to stray off topic, I aint droppin no knowledge I’m just clear’n my conscience, I got this.

(Chorus) My tank on low I don’t know where to go, I used to ride real slow but not no mo,
I gotta speed up, we in the fast lane, I gotta speed up, we in the fast lane.

Now that little something here and I don’t know what to do, I can’t believe its true,
it seems impossible as I face these obstacles trying get away, gotta keep a clear optical cuz things do change, very fast in these days and times, gotta speak slick quick cuz they try to play games with ya mind. I’m fine, that’s all I tell her, I shield her from the rain underneath my umbrella, jealousy woes, only time can tell her, friend or foe who knows,
no telling. All I know is I do care, the love is there, I pray that she knows that, something like Kodak, she the photo for my frame, hope she gets the picture before I’m in the fast lane.

(Chorus) My tank on low I don’t know where to go, I used to ride real slow but not no mo,
I gotta speed up, we in the fast lane, I gotta speed up, we in the fast lane.
