Lyrics

Mary Jane

Written By: Reginald T. Saffold

Ooooh Aaaahhh
Cause on a good day
Everything goes your way
And on a better day
You don't even have to try

And on a bad day
You feel like your being used
And on a bad day
You feel like you're playing the fool
But not today
I'm gonna leave all problems and fly away
To a better place
Way up in the sky

We can run away
We can leave today
Wouldn't we all just like to get away
We can fly away
We can leave today
Wouldn't we all just like to get away

We can run away, we can run away
You and me up and leave together baby
We can fly away

It's a new day
Not thinking bout the price I paid
To look the other way
While my worries passed me by

AfterGlow

Written By: Reginald T. Saffold

(Verse I)
Found you once again down on your knees
Bent in your sanctified pose
Sun beats down upon your face
And blinds you to the life that you’ve known

(Pre-Chorus)
By shedding blood outside of grace, am I just wasting time
The chosen one’s are few and hard to find
Disciples sharing the same face-afraid of growing old
Could it be the street aint paved with gold
Do you really know

(Chorus)
What’s underneath the afterglow
Underneath the afterglow
Just before I shed my soul
Will I stay or will I go

(Verse II)
Born out of a sin not quite my own
Yet still I must be redeemed
Mourn the loss of innocence
When preacher man is no longer clean

(Pre-Chorus)
So did you suffer for your gain, or was it all divine
Now tell it to the one’s you’ve gentrified
We only care about our pain, forget the sacrifice
You weren’t the only one left crucified
Do you really know

Card Trick

Written By: Reginald T. Saffold

Card Trick

Call a spade a spade while it’s showing
Or bluff your way to deceit
Kings and Queens are high on the ladder
Shuffle around in your sleep

Aint gonna show their hand
Not what the plan is
Constantly dealing in
We think we’re winning
Most of us choose a side
And join the rollin
Not really knowing where were going

House fall down
Not much to make your house of cards fall down

Keep your eyes on the one in the middle
It’s the ace you believe
While they poison your mind through conviction
Can’t see what’s under their sleeves

A favorite common man
No heavy thinker
Edit down his brand
Mentally weaker
Fighting the same ol’ lies
Round’s never over
Can’t decide which card was mine

House fall down
Not much to make your house of cards fall down
