Islands Feat. Sam Ock

Verse 1

This island is cold – I tried to decide or to fight it
the parts i confided are cyphers that finally cited
a bunch of mirrors that show you youre more than worth it
and tourists are told to twerk and these verses are all deserted
its like a chase and I constantly try to see it
by the time I try to leave i done breathed and i’m all conceited
And so i tell myself excuses laid in apathy
like it’s not me its just their view and it’s sad to me
that they can’t tell that this real song is upon them
whats wrong – is that words are now more used as a coffin
instead of a vessel that could take time that’ll test you
and teach what it means to be headstrong when it’s stressful
yeah, I guess it’s old school that I think that
to see life as music when i press play i could breathe wax
And so I inhale it inside of my lungs now
throw both of my hands up while I’m raising the whole crowd

Hook
I am lightning
can you see me flash down can you hear my thunder sound
lighting up a black cloud
Lightning
I will not be stopped now I’m gonna light it up for all to see
I light up the world for all to see

Verse 2
It’s like I been here before, It’s not my first time
why did I drive along the side of my whole mind
when I wasn’t even ready well, I don’t know why
The only thing that I know is that my whole life wasn’t all mine
and now it’s back I feel the sunlight on my face
on this island, by myself – and i flashback to the place
that I used to know back when it was 94’ rap
trapped inside my system – i would seek ears just to listen
now i got some but the problem is gotham
I would fly high with my cape cold make em see fall like im autumn
and then I pull off to the side just to remind
all myself that this whole life is a ride journey
i see sand dunes all around me to count all would be craziness
but each spec is a story
and so i listen with my ears glued to the tube
while the waves circle around me there’s no sound but it’s coo

Hook
I am lightning
can you see me flash down can you hear my thunder sound
lighting up a black cloud
Lightning
I will not be stopped now I’m gonna light it up for all to see
I light up the world for all to see

Verse 3
we all start off with a vision for our lives and
then we slowly let it die – is it pressure? is it lies?
is it my ride – that i don’t fit the conventional nine to five?
that i don’t care bout big rocks that’ll shine bright in the sky?
when then? did i give you a high five when you decided to
arrive into this new world like a Myan? huh?
you said you’d change this – had enough!
hold it but my peers they make like 50k plus
and I can’t stand how I’m looked at If I dont match
where they’re headed dread it i get it come kill all my credits
I might as well just surrender got my head down im infested
and i don’t know why i do this and second guess all my weapons
I know I’m gifted – I know i made it here
i know the easy route looked nice but i took the stairs
and now I’m climbing and I’m holding onto the truth
and I’m holding onto the cycle that is leading back to a ‘you’

Hook
I am lightning
can you see me flash down can you hear my thunder sound
lighting up a black cloud
Lightning
I will not be stopped now I’m gonna light it up for all to see
I light up the world for all to see
