Track Name: Welcome To Proelium
Intro:
Welcome to Proelium (4x)
So, I just want to get some things off my chest. That, this is for real of me. Feel it.

First verse:
Back when I was younger, didn't think much of myself.
to go to college, become successful, not a thought that I had.
I was an outcast, man, it was so sad.
Constantly rejected by others, it made me so mad.
Got to a point of major depression, i almost committed suicide.
Thinking whether not if anyone would miss me if i died.
Besides the jokes in this EP, I just want to share my life.
Through pain, sorrow (please keep hope!) lord knows I tried.
Been cheated on, I also cheated, oh God I cried.
More for the people i hurt, basing relations with lies.
I begged forgiveness, the though still makes me tear up.
The demons coming back, man they never gonna give up.
to break me down, teary sounds, in a corner trapped in a shell,
no one else hear to tell, prayed to God to get me help.
No strength to move on, my room feels like my shell,
The Proelium, a story of my own hell.

Chorus:
In this life we keep on pushing
Through rain and conflict
Wondering whats its all for
Will we reach that peaceful shore
Will we ever reach the sun
Serenity

Second verse:
I mean, this is just me, for real.
It was a struggle, I'm not lying, hear it
All i know is real, I don't know what it's like to be fake
These stories of my life are true, its not a mistake
Kinda happy was the first song I wrote
Followed by keep hope, dealing with a breakup
So i wrote depression
With So Bad, happy that I graduated, but the problems laid out made it harder than anticipated.
Through it all was the cornerstone of my fall, with a motto saying that we will all ball
For thats loud, admittingly supposed to be a joke,
but the underlying meaning of it meant that I had no hope.
So gather round, gather round, I got a story to tell.
Welcome to Proelium, a story of my own hell

Chorus:
In this life we keep on pushing
Through rain and conflict
Wondering whats its all for
Will we reach that peaceful shore
Will we ever reach the sun
Serenity

Outro:
Alright, now lets get to it
Track Name: Through it All
Hook: (3X)
Through it all,
We will not fall
Through it all,
We will all ball,
(Yo, this beat pretty nice, let me spit some stuff on it real quick)

Verse 1:
Let me get a chance, in a way, by today.
At the end, I will know, you’ll be bumping to this beat (Right, right)
With a backpack, with rat tracks, gonna even sell it on the street.
Independent brotha with a past so fast,
You’ll hardly be able to stay in yo seat
Yo, gotta let them know, that this flow didn’t come so easily,
Hit em with a gat now, never gonna back down
You homies better get down, never gonna let down,
Coming of a beast now, I shock little kids who go running to their mamas who are dressed in a night gown
Yea, then they fall to the ground, cuz they heard that the blaze is coming to their towns,
gonna burn it through sounds, he’s gonna burn it to the ground, he’s gonna burn it all down,
he’s gonna burn it to the ground.

Inter hook:
I try to hustle money, no cautions
I try to keep my focus with little or no options
I ball (ball) but fall down harder than most others
We working through the day and the night just like most others

Verse 1 continued:
Why do I risk it, but I gotta risk it
Trying to make it work with nothing (Yea 3x) I guess its none or something
But we tell our stories on one way or another
Tell our stories on one way or another
A sorry to my mother and a sorry to my father
Gonna give it all, gonna build empires (yea)

Inter Section:
(Hallelujah 2x) (And I’m just getting started man, haha, lets get back to it)

Hook: (3X)
Through it all,
We will not fall
Through it all,
We will all ball,

Verse 2:
Now bounce (bounce) bounce yo whip from the ground to the air, and then back to the floor
Wow (wow) trying to find a bumoing party, don’t know where to go
See us parked outside, with a flag,
Spelling out yolo, at the door, with my bros
Neighbors screaming out OH NO
Homies better back up, better stack up,
Man Im tipsy, you really better back up, Imma throw up,
Tripping and falling, I think Im gonna be balling even though imma throw up.
Oh man, ughhh
Life right here can be so tough, why so rough, can I even keep a job I had enough.

Inter hook:
I try to hustle money, no cautions
I try to keep my focus with little or no options
I ball (ball) but fall down harder than most others
We working through the day and the night just like most others

Verse 2 (continued):
At its best, this life is stressed
Cant handle the mess
Can barely handle the pain,
I guess I really must confess
But screw it, I just keep
Bumping and bumping
We all be stomping and stomping
My heart is thumping and thumpin
Cuz through it all:



Inter Section:
(were still here 2x) (I told you I was gonna do it man, hehe. Lets get it, lets go)

Hook (3x)
Through it all,
We will not fall
Through it all,
We will all ball,

Track Name: Intro to That's Loud
Ehhh
I'm never gonna get any studying done,
there's just so much
Like what the heck is a null hypothesis
I promise I didn't learn any of this growth or fixed mindset in class man
And i'm supposed to graduate this friday, but this final is gonna kill me
I need a gril to calm my nerves, yea that'll do it.
Just thinking of Cindy in her rosy pink...
Nah nah nah nah I gotta focus, I gotta focus
I really hope my upstairs neighbors doesnt make any noise again
Ever since i moved here, they been partying like all the damn time,
I cant face it, wait what...
(sex noises)
Track Name: That's Loud
Intro:
What in the world is that noise. Im trying to study here, i got a final tomorrow. Ughhh, i can't focus at all. What is going on here? ahhh, what in the world man, come on

Chorus:
I just, i just feel, feel so trapped
I just, i just need, some help please
I guess, I guess i, just cant deal
i need, I need to, just get out
I just, cant go on, hearing some noise like that and I just need some peace, Im going crazy
Need to, need to get out, i just need to, I need, i need some peace please, some peace please

Verse 1:
Chilling in room on the bed? (In a chair)
Reading books? (playing games)
Study notes? (hecks no)
But I did hear a voice saying something in the lines of drop it down low girl.
Oh my, whats going on here
It sounds like my neighbors are having fun up there
i remember a time, I had a couple of girls
Bring them back to the crib and have a little funfair
Sitting on my bed, looking at the dang floor
Reminiscing of a time, when they walked right up out the door
So instead of making noise, I'm now hearing it,
This is just crazy man, I guess it's payback for sure

Inter Skit:
Knocks 3x
Uh sir, you're getting your freak on a little too loud (oh my bad)
Can you please keep it down (oh i will)
Im trying to study and i got a couple finals and I'm trying to graduate (my bad homie)
thank you very much

Ah no problem homie, sometimes i just get a little lonely
I look at my phone, and I call a couple of honeys and they be down and i'm like (oh shit thats loud)
Did't mean to make it loud though, but i will, I will try to keep it quiet though.

No problem sir, just letting you know
You have a great day and keep doing your thing. LOL

Chorus:
I just, i just feel, feel so trapped
I just, i just need, some help please
I guess, I guess i, just cant deal
i need, I need to, just get out
I just, cant go on, hearing some noise like that and I just need some peace, Im going crazy
Need to, need to get out, i just need to, I need, i need some peace please, some peace please

Second verse:
To the left (girl moans)
to the right (more moans)
All night, (more girl moans)
They been going all night till the sun is so bright
Please, please, please bring that base down girl;
Man, this really aint no joke, they gonna get there face broke,
But I guess I cant be mad, I used to be the same til the girl left me for another
So now i sit here (wait!)
On that night, the very same night
They decide to throw a party, with the music going hardy, in my apartment
They were smoking something a little tarty, smelling like a smarty, with a hint of calamari, al li carte, got me feeling artsy.

So now I cant focus, Yea, so now I cant focus
Had a test to study for (for real)
Yea man, but now i cant focus
Man, its just too loud
ay, its just too loud
my mind in a cloud, I cannot concentrate right now
Taking time off though (Yep)
I need a break from it yo (yep)
And maybe, just maybe, I can get some payback over and over to them later though.

Inter Skit 2:
Knock 3x
Um sir, you were still pretty noisy last night (So)
And you were smoking something filthy were you (heck yea I was)
Youre gonna get everyone in this apartment complex in trouble (Man I dont care)
But Its ok though, Im gonna find me a bad girl and get some payback (right)
And then ill be the one who's gonna be like (oh shit thats loud)
And im gonna get so big and so wealthy that I'll be the one on top haha (nice)
Just you wait sir, just you wait (Alright)

Just you wait (3x)
Track Name: Kinda Happy
Scrolling at the the photos on my phone
Saw a photo of you that reminded im alone
We were on vacation
Exploring out the nation
Stuck together and now im thinking of you on occasion
building a formation
Love is on probation
We talk about how we're gonna make a generation,
new nation, cant take it
All that time was wasted
You got a new man, and I guess it really phased me.
i just dont know, on where I should go
Every time I see you on the book, you smile though
A pain in my chest, atleast you're happy though,
but i'm not happy yo, we both were something yo,
oh i cant just
take my mind off of you girl
If I could, I would give you all of the world
But that time has passed though
Which also makes me sad bro
Hated that you left me
No girl but you though

Chorus:
Sad that you let me go
Not too many girls in the world like you though
I hope you can see
Come back to me (please)
Had alot of fights but you made me kinda happy
I know its kinda crazy
Used to be my lady
Thinking of a time that we almost had a baby
Oh baby, amazed me
This is so true
Could say that I love you, but will say that
I miss you, baby

Second Verse:
Yea 3x
Yea, hope I get to radio
Will you hear this, maybe so
Will it help or hurt the situation
Man I don't know
Cant stand the sight of couples
Used to be a double
used to be together, now that thought is trouble
Used to text me up, i need to break this pain though
gonna go for hours, to try and kill this pain yo,
Been with other girls, but haven't moved on
I see you moved on, I admit that I was wrong
Fell in love, said goodbye, and now I write a song
Just need to drop it, stop it, need to move along
But i cant just
take my mind off of you girl
If I could, I would give you all of the world
But that time has passed though
Which also makes me sad bro
Hated that you left me
No girl but you though

Chorus:
Sad that you let me go
Not too many girls in the world like you though
I hope you can see
Come back to me (please)
Had alot of fights but you made me kinda happy
I know its kinda crazy
Used to be my lady
Thinking of a time that we almost had a baby
Oh baby, amazed me
This is so true
Could say that I love you, but will say that
I miss you, baby
