Jensen Reed

Verse 1

Hold the cameras with the flash bulbs
What are you gonna do when the cash comes?
Flip it up and down with a quicker style
You know I’m loaded, catch some
In the net with the second set
When the ball’s in you court time to place a bet
Odds on favorite in the Vegas eyes
Tar Heel flavor with the baby blue skies
Paparazzi in the front row
No go with the low dough from the back door
When the flow shows
Broke those old clothes with the elbows
And a fine glass of merlot
Use the brush like Van Gogh
Stay cool like an Eskimo
Hot like Acapulco, Mexico
Go loco when I’m toe to toe
Stick ‘em up put your hand in the sky
Peace surrendering on the fly
Beats are rendering, clouds are lingering
Oh my God, get a glimpse of that guy
Prepared to pay for the patience
Heaven sakes great race relations
Brace the nation for a situation
That begs for help then bleeds sensation
It could take a long time
But the years keep flyin by and I’m tryin to find
The road less traveled gotta get in the saddle
Giddy up Fitzwell let’s go
Hurry up don’t move so slow
Bout to make a move real clean
Then change the scene
Brand new music, start a revolution
With the words out my mouth
Never doubt your team

Chorus

Now it’s on and it’s on because I say it’s on
Right or wrong I belong where the playas gone
Sing this song when the light goes down
And the night get’s old
I’m outta sight when I’m leavin this town

Verse 2

Outta sight outta mind
Too much later outta time
That’s the way I feel
But can’t help to keep pushin on my grind
By design I molded myself with no one’s help
To all the Aristocrat rappers
We on the top shelf
And just as soon as they caught on
We brought the heavy hitters
US legal tender fool, no couterfitters
Roger Clemens throwin gas pitching no hitters
Vital to the youth cause I’m truth
Like Urban Outfitters
What I need are the palm trees in Hollywood
Been thinking bout my future
Longer than I probably should
I’m hittin the gym, it was written for them
Sittin flippin through the channels
Rippin sick from within
Break through the chains of lifetimes never forgotten
And tell me how could you believe the hype
Or feel you should stop it?
No answer from the prophet
He’s never impressed
You use the same amount of caution
Like you wearing a vest
And it’s on…
Track Name: Dust of Mars
“Dust Of Mars”

Jensen Reed

Verse 1

As I start my next rhyme
Put the pen to the paper’
No tellin what comes next
Through the hazy vapor
Thinking back on my education
With a nation of depressed youngsters
Mental migration
I want to weave the words that move the masses
And speak from the heart with a sharp tongue
I came apart once but I decided to pass this
Along to the people so the know what first class is
From the top to the bottom
Hot like the asphalt kickin in the sun
Now you know I got em
Cool breeze everybody smile, say cheese
Shutter speeds, half the time it’s hard to breathe
Now my heart rate’s rising
Pupils dilated, butterflies in my stomach
Yup, I made it
The same person that you thought was your friend
Might leave you high and dry
When it matters most at the end

Chorus

Now I wanderin through the dust of mars
Clouded by the pain of my old scars
I hear em say every where I go
There’s no place for you to shine your light so low
Now I wanderin through the dust of mars
Clouded by the pain of my old scars
I hear em say every where I go
There’s no place for you in this town

Verse 2

Flipped out, slipped out the back
Before I lost my wits
Aw man I’m back
This is the dream of every son
Hoping to shine, to rise, to find
That I’m the one that gets it done
The stage is set, sorta like the dinner table
I’m trying to find a way to win Kentucky Derby stables
Packin heat jackin beats with the fresh flavor
Haters heavy on my mind
But the love overpowers
Devours, the saga of the century
Must have been the fact that I got game like Lebron James
Versatile vision, envision how you living
And tell me was it really worth it?
Was it what you missin?
I’m sleeping most nights beside myself
God, tell me what it takes
To get a little help?
I bleed, I cry, I try so hard
But when it’s all said and done
Will I be lost on mars?
I don’t know…

Chorus
Track Name: Waiting In Line (feat. Lindsey & Melinda Whittington)
“Waiting In Line feat. Lindsey & Melinda Whittington”

Jensen Reed

Intro

Not long til I’m outta here
Baby hope to find out what I’m looking for
Pay to hear the rhythm
Hold on to the window
When it’s windy what you got inside?
When it’s time to ride
You better open up your wings and fly

Verse 1

Hot times in the summer time
Get it fresh, got it right, better hold on tight
You know them dudes that be hollering every day
You know they lose
Cause they got nothing important to say
Let me lay it down for you
Like a towel on the beach
Sit down at your desk
You’re here to learn, I’m here to teach
Open books to page seventy-three
Let me tell you a little story about my history
Had it great growin up dog I ain’t gonna lie
By the time I was twelve
I’d been to California five times
Fell in love twice at the age of sixteen
Blond hair, green eyes and my band was mean
Killing show after show, I tasted the bubble
Never could I go back
It brought a whole lot of trouble
Fast-forward two years and I’m all alone
By myself meetings daily
Just to get in my dome

Chorus

Waiting in line, just taking my time
Any day now baby yeah we gonna shine
In the pouring rain, things stay the same
You’re pissed but you know you gotta play the game



Verse 2

Now it’s on to Chapel Hill
Yeah the king of the South
Rollin real hard, real good
We knockin em out
Some frat didn’t want to pay us
Through a brick at their house
Turned the whole situation
Back to our favor now
It’s tough when you know you gotta trust
But you’ll never leave
Final destination, always knew what I could be
Graduated first in my class in diversity
Two degrees from a top ten university
Leaving school with big dreams
And even bigger plans
On my mind I had to shine when I had the chance
Perfect the stage game, now my skills real tight
Recording on a four track every day and night
I got the bubble back
Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
When you know the feeling
How much longer will it take ya?
I got some time on my side
I’m only twenty-two and I just started this ride

Chorus

Verse 3

The shows kept comin cause we booked them ourselves
Smackin crowds, Plan B I got a lot to say
Take it night to day, pray it’s safe that way
That all your blood, sweat, and tears
Would really pay one day
Not a chance they will tell you
With a glance under certain circumstance
What you doing with your time?
And what you got for plans?
Probably take a few trips
And fly across the country
Sippin champagne, first class kinda comfy
I never doubted that it happened for a certain reason
Just thought I had it planned out
Got a piece of the pie
Reaching high with my arms to the sky
While the world tries to tell me
That we living a lie
I don’t even know why I let it go to my cabeza
Hate to say goodbye
But the time has come to hit the road
Open air feeling like a breath from the soul
Riding down 40 West til I hit the coast

Chorus
Track Name: Four Corners
“Four Corners”

Jensen Reed

Verse 1

I’m staring at the candlelight
I’m looking at the walls
Corners moving in
But I ain’t got no time to pause
Rain keeps falling
My mind keeps stalling
The voices in my head
Them motherfuckers keep calling
They tell me I’m a slave to the ways of the planet
That get rich quick shit
Damn I can’t stand it
Gotta make the ends meet
Shake them tricks up out their shoestrings
It’s the real thing
Coming at you live with some spread wings
I’d like to think that when my time comes
I’ll be holding my breath with nothing left
Now my mind’s numb
Heavy on my heart, ready from the start
Rip the fucking stage apart
From the cities to the trailer parks
That’s the way we do it
Spit rhymes are fluid
Might’ve had some doubts
Underestimated but they knew
Now tell me can ya’ll hang we me?
Did you really think that ya’ll would ever hang with me?
Nah

Chorus

This is the time of our life
Gotta make the right moves
Never can you sacrifice enough
To prove you got what it takes
You feel it deep in your soul
And that’s what it takes





Verse 2

The truth is back, who is that?
Hit you with a sneak attack
Play the track
This the shit they wanna hear
I want them headphones blasting
When they’re up in your ear
Want your brains shook
From left to right, ignite fights
From the depths of the highway
Living like it’s my way
Cruise control set at 85
On a holiday
I’m alive and breathing
With a season if it don’t change
But don’t be broken hearted
Bout your broken, fucking dreams
How the seem? A little green?
To big for their britches
Bitches listening and whispering
I got the message
Making music that refuses to be faded
So while you people watch
And stand and stare
I probably made it
Go ahead and try to rate it
And put us in a category
Knowing it won’t do nothing
But liven up the newest story
On a path of glory
Focused on the task at hand
Feel like I’m in purgatory
‘Til we reach the promised land

Chorus
Track Name: The Last Overlook
“The Last Overlook”

Jensen Reed

Chorus

Too blind for myself, now the vision of wealth is on my mind
It reminds of the time before,
Behind everything was how I wanted it to be
And I’ll be damned if I let another survive the days
Left town with my music in my hands
I’ve earned this trip as long as I can
Waiting for the time when I can barely breathe

Verse 1

So check the words from my mouth
We was young but we had heart
And every now and then
I’m moving in and out to depart
Make a difference to the people
Got a brand new start
Heaven sent me to the planet
With a hole in my heart
How times change
Everything is going okay
Then the next day
Your dreams start blowing away
Then the following week
You try to holler and speak
But no one gives a damn
About what you’re going to say
I put my life in the song for the customers
The haters back stage
Knowing they can’t f*** with us
Kids riding in their cars
Spittin my lyrics bar for bar
Telling me I’ll be a star
How many times do I have to say?
How many rhymes do I have to kick
Before they play it?
I got love for the family on the side of the road
Cause ain’t no telling what will happen
When we all get home

Chorus


Verse 2

Stepped out for the first time into the dark
I’m wearing glasses that are blacker
Then the evening starts
Last overlook, read the book, past overdue
It seems we always happen
To be helpless to the truth
So we take and break honesty and fate
Just to feel something that’s real
A little bit longer, a whole lot stronger
Growing up with a purpose
Can never ever be nervous
My eyes are burning in the sun
While the team searches
Through my verses and the purses
Got to find that little something
That just makes it worth it
Cause I deserve it, I paid my dues
Been on the Apollo stage man
Hearing nothing but boos
And that’s the truth
Watered down for nobody
On a constant pursuit
The game’s hot, but they’re all ready
Heavy with the pen, mighty as the sword
While I’m breaking down
All your barriers and doors

Chorus
