Lyrics

All the Way Down

Written By: Verge Of Umbra

ALL THE WAY DOWN
Intro
Here I sit with mad eyes and a sad soul
It’s you devotion, I wish I had more
Cause every time I try to grab hold
Plenum slips and slides out of control

Chorus

Steps I take to bring me close to peace, pushes me all the way to the edge; pushes me all the way down.
Steps I take to bring you back to me, pushes you all the way to the edge; pushes you all the way down.

Verse 1
My relationship with God at best, is distant
I’ve been in pain, he never came to my assistance
Agnostic now, though I was raised Christian
Genocide and poverty made me question his existence
For me to be on this track is hypocritical
But on the flipside I do feel spiritual
Way beyond religion, far past the church
I give praise and respect for the creation of earth
With very little knowledge of the maker or keeper
I pray to get me close, meditate to get me deeper
Investigate to find we’re vibrations in the ether
Taking a leap of faith trying to reach a…
Better sense of self but it ends being exhausted
No feeling after this besides being in a coffin
Even believing the talking of Stephen Hawking
Big bang with no God for me to see beyond it

Chorus

Verse 2
Rally round the other side; transform to a whole new demon, a whole new parasite. A shoulda follow my mind but I got blind side by the thought that I could do right; and jump off to a new life. But in hind sight, it was a mess from the day that you said I was bordering the edge of a new fight. It seems clear nowadays I’m peaceful. My wusas' coming hand over feet do. My peers tell me i'm rugged and i'm a beast too. Is there any other way that I can please you. Leave a message in the message box please do. I keep thinking I could make it all better yo. But some days things tough without the cheddar yo. Phenomenal rhyme skills make me better though. I'm being pushed to the edge and a neva know.

Chorus

In another nother life time, I wanna be the lone bass line fi blow yo blow yo damn mind. Thats right. Thats right. Thats right

Judgement City

Written By: Verge Of Umbra

Verse 1
I just arrived when the sun come down to perform at a function in judgment town
Picked up in a ride weh mi comfort down, taken to the north side concert grounds
Push out a vibes weh di people mi love, peace and love, being as one
Completely emerged in the beat and the sound, rock through the night till we bring in the sun
When the sun came a change had occurred, a revelation with the day had emerged
A realization they had to return to a lower vibration of pain and hurt
Rich in appearance but poor inside, they keep the façade up for tourist’s eyes
Judgment city, I adore the design but the architecture at the core is a lie

Chorus
Judgment City is almost painted, newly constructed to be destructive
The frills and the frauds are all in place, the only thing left fi we go do dah get up and face it

They spend their lives, maintaining this paradigm

Verse 2
All I can say when we left that place, we gave them a taste of a freedom
No matter how deep in material realm, we are never too far to achieve it
Close your eyes, deep, slow, start with your breathing
Pessimistic views that we’ve been keeping that leech us, we can delete them
See things as they are, not how we’ve been taught to perceive them
The ego falls with this treatment, the heart takes the lead
And a peace is received we cannot achieve through material beliefs
Gluttony, anger, envy and greed, it’s a pity
Trailing the vain and the pretty
Anesthetizing the eyes of the many still hypnotized by the lights of the city

Chorus
Judgment City is almost painted, newly constructed to be destructive
The frills and the frauds are all in place, the only thing left fi we go do dah get up and face it

Chaos Sequence

Written By: Verge Of Umbra

Chaos Sequence
chorus
Wish I could find peace of mind and freeze time in this chaotic life
Verse 1
Entropy was here in essence and it brought discord and trouble
In less than a fraction of a second everything that was built was brought to a ruble
And everybody round coulda neva bring it back to the order it was before
Untamed, unchained, unpredictable, under mercy of the world

There's hope and comfort knowing that it’s for a purpose. Eliminating all the doubt that has unearth us. The grand finale no time fi dilly dally. The fact that yo da mi bally a wa politely tell yo sorry. The grand scheme the bigger picture life awaits. The sequences eena the numbers clearly calculates predestined premonitions, free will the choice fi change. No need to live the ills of being shackled by the chains.

Chorus
Verse 2
Thoughts of a new life burnt to crisp cause the whole a man kind caught in the abyss. Wi got serial killers in the school with the kids, psychopaths chilling in the room with your friends. Not too far from Dooms day. But a bullet and a gun is the fool’s way. When the evil tek ova the people a feel the darkness ova like blue grey.

New wave movement saving a thousand youth lives
Would not have done so if she wasn’t used as a child
So I am careful how I analyze the damage already done
It’s the chaos at the quantum level that brings the order above
I am greatfull for the comprehension my mind can afford
Decay and reconstruction for my eyes to adore
I hope to never forget the completeness I will feel
When the sacred sequence of patterns reveal

Bridge x2
I try to see the beauty in the destruction of society…
Reality so hard, I hope it’s just a bad dream
Desire kick started, I wonder weh dis all mean
Confusing puzzle parts are all I can see
But my heart tells me that there is a grand scheme

Chorus
