Track Name: ICU
Rubix Verse:

I.C.U in my rearview
Follow my voice, let me lead you
Blow the dirt off your shoulder, you a soldier
And the world’s getting colder
So, let me call you up and I’ll call you in
I won’t call you out, ‘cause it’s all within
When the power comes and the power leaves
I’ma be right here standin tall like trees
And you know you got a friend in me
When the times get tough, we can both break free like...


Chorus:

I see you, like a ray comin’ through
Seen sweeter days but you still stay true
I see you, level up and double up your skill
And, if you say so, then I know that you will
I see you, like a ray comin’ through
Seen sweeter days but you still stay true
I see you, level up and double up your skill
And, if you say so, then I know that you will!

Bridge:

Courageous, outrageous, you dare to be unique
Hate is contagious, we on a renegade frequency
Vibe with me, and let’s express
If I disagree I still give respect
When we blend our melodies
We’re living in harmony

Rebecca Verse:

Broken down / Burned out
Asking' how / hear me now
As I hit the ground I swear I heard you shout
Callin’ me up, not callin’ me out
In my heart I recognized what you were all about
All love, all peace, beauty and unity
All one, all free, escape the misery
When you saw me
It set my soul free
Ironically I see that I’m all that I need
Source: inside
I never realized
Until I saw myself reflected in your eyes

Chorus
Track Name: Alien
Rubix Verse:

Gotta face my fears
Gotta make it clear that I’m here
No applause, no hugs, no cheers
Eye to eye with my hopes and fears
Eye to eye with the future me
Can I be what I'm supposed to be
Only doin it socially
No I lie, cuz i feel it takin’ over me, so I cry
Cuz I promised myself I ain’t doin it again
Too tense, and the last time hurt
And I promised myself ain’t losin it again
Who plans to be capsized first?
Not me... not me.. not me (but WAIT)
Not me.. not me.. not me... (have FAITH)

I, keep my eye on the prize and I never lose focus
Is the mindset that I gotta grow with
Sew with, hold it like a beating drum,
So do I forget everything and run?
Or do I face everything and rise?
Do I take when you provide?
Gotta shake it off and just TRY
I’m stuck though
Kinda runnin outta luck though
Uh, this sucks yo
Dont mean I be givin up no
I’m on the scene, I be livin up sooo
Go back to my limits, if it holds me back
Then I’m off track, back feelin’ timid
And it feels like hell
Somebody break my outta this shell

Chorus (Rebe)

These lonely travels got me feeling like I’m an alien, an alien
These lonely travels got me feeling like I’m an alien, an alien

Rebecca Verse

I reach out to the vacuum of space
I freak out, do I got what it takes?
If I give you the things that I make
Will you see the truth or label it fake
Spinnin’ out I wanna hit the brakes
Or maybe I should just embrace
I got vertigo
And I just don’t know
Which direction is up
Cuz there’s no map for this stuff
got no navigation, though I try yo
Living in the city it’s survival
Will you be a friend or a rival?
Will you be my fan or my idol?
Maybe we could all be both
But I’m feeling like life is a joke
Building up and I’m the punchline
Everybody’s vibin’ in the sunshine
While I’m in the shadows on the sideline
Why? I cry, deny what I spy, no lies
Looking at my own reflection
Eye to eye no protection
Raw, under pressure
I’m not ready to surrender
So I battle the pretender
I am my toughest contender
But I want some
So I just run, into the sun
Upgrade my ambiance
I am the axiom
Take it to the maximum
Now I found the spirit of a champion, what?

Chorus

Rubix Verse
Track Name: Close The Curtains
I wanna hide
Don’t know if I’ll survive
If you see me this way
I might just die

VERSE 1 (Rubix)
I wanna hide, don’t know if ill survive
If you see me this way I might just die
I’d rather that than me face what I’ve been hiding from
I’d rather be ignorant to what is blindin’ them
The silver lining ummm.. has rusted and corroded
I can't trust those who put me on this road
It's been a minute since I came out from my reserve
U gotta be crazy and loud is what I heard
To be courageous, but that ain’t me so I’ma fade it
I used to be jaded
when I was bullied, re-located
Retreat inside my shell is where I dwell
Analysis paralysis is like a spell
So I, cast away my thoughts, it's crystal clear
That I gotta put my cloak back on and disappear
Livin’ with fear, you could say he's like my roommate
If I step out, it might be too late

Chorus

So close the curtains cuz for certain that I’m hurtin’
And I don’t want y’all to see me
Close the curtains for certain I’m hurtin’
And I don’t want y’all to feel me
So close the curtains cuz for certain that I’m hurtin’
And I don’t want y’all to judge me
Close the curtains for certain I’m hurtin’

Verse 2 (Rebecca)
Only wanna roam free, nobody owns me
They see me everyday but these people don’t know me
Anxiety is trying these new situations
How can I escape if the case is self-hatred?
I can never get away / Take a breath and contemplate
Lotta prana on my plate / Take a bite and hesitate
Nourishing the soul-state can feel so difficult
Pull down the shades, hide away, so typical
Isolated on an island, but it’s no vacation
Disconnection from myself, affecting all relations
New sensations are a point of growth
Yet any ultimatum is a slippery slope
Change from within is bound to provoke
A chain reaction for what we promote

Chorus
Track Name: How I Do
Embrace the day I bring my best intentions
The tapestry, we weaving new connections
I treat the whole world like my own crew
Cuz how I do one thing, well that’s just how I do

Verse 1:

Intentionally interstellar, drawing constellations
Gratitude and empathy infused in our creations
Human understanding from the cellar to the bright light
Character revealed when we brace for the strike
Life is immortal, love cannot be severed
So step in through the portal cuz your spirit reigns forever
Compare ourselves to others and we’re gettin’ off the topic
You’re designed for greatness, for your purpose you are flawless

(Chorus)

Verse 2:

When the system’s dismissin’ my mission and my vision
Frustration, division, like nuclear fission
When it, gets too heavy then we got to split
Release the binding energy & then we get lit
Seek the higher level / that’s less negative
Balance, recalibration, I can generate lift
Power to the purpose / Now the current’s flowing
Direct the effect of where my life is going

(Chorus)

Verse 3:

Every single second is a precious gift
So I stop and ask myself
How do I want to live?
How much can I give, what will I sacrifice?
Can I be a benefit to other human life?
Can we make things right?
Insight will bring the light
Tonight it’s on, to the Dawn of a new era
Attempt to be present in every interaction
Manifesting fractals, uniting every faction

(Chorus)
Track Name: WildFire
I emerge from the fire found in my double helix
My jeans ain’t grey but you can call me phoenix
The fear is intravenous, outside i handle it
Manage with volcanic fires to dismantle it
I want that candle lit, no need for planning it
You jump and feel the faith, no understanding it
You, could, fly, if you spread your wings
Fear can always rise, even to a king
Uh, I carry the torch and its burden
We carry it forth cuz the fire is important
It may seem heavy but
You gotta be ready to
STRIKE!
When the ciphers hype, let the fuel ignite
It might spread cuz courage is contagious
Whether you in your early in your ages
Barely making papers
It's all the same for the entire world
Inspire others every time you let that fire burn

Chorus

Courage can spread like wildfire
I fan the flames let the smoke carry me to my desires
and if my passion burns fiercely
Then let the flames of courage scorch my chains to release me
x2

Courage can spread like wildfire
x2

Verse 2

I’m out the frying pan into the oven
I been through a dozen
of sinful discussions
I know you my cousin
But I ain’t crackin from the pressure given by my peers
Oh you ain’t cool with me doin’ me, then disappear!
It's crystal clear, in my hand I hold a fireball
I aint swiggin it, I’m castin fire to all of yall
Who crave luminescence in these dark days
Help me carry out the torch thru this dark cave
Help me light up the earth, no ring of fire
Courage required if you wanna take your life higher
Go and spark it from the struggles that you livin' in
Hidden embers, given when your in friction and
Resistance combined with persistence
I speak in a tone of flame you, I hope you listen
Your fears on this world appear strong
Rn reality they really fearin’ your fire like Shere Khan
Shear strength in yourself builds fortitude
When you brave you realize there’s more to you
Than what they say, think, hear like a spewing curse
So I blaze smoke signals to the universe
Supreme valor, my team holla
And spread flames thru your chakras
Into domains of the darkness
We topple fear, the aim of a tyrant
Courage protects like the mane of a lion

Chorus

Courage can spread like wildfire
I fan the flames let the smoke carry me to my desires
and if my passion burns fiercely
Then let the flames of courage scorch my chains to release me
x2

Courage can spread like wildfire
x2
