about

This album's premise was based around the idea of demolition -- making way for new growth by destroying waste. In life we all try to force our way through many things. Sometimes it takes a step back to move forward.

This is thePhantom*'s creative interpretation of the process of destroying and Rebuilding.

100% of album sales go towards advancing an independent artist. 0% of sales go to a monopolizing, life-sucking, creativity repressing major label.

Enjoy!

Track Name: Soar
Carryin' the weight of the world/
Can I see the gates made of pearl/

Heaven it awaits man I'm sick of the agony but I/
keep the faith/

but I gotta keep a face with a grin/
Never be embracin' the sin/

I don't wanna be here no more so I'm finna die! and just break/
all my skin/

slice horizontal and not gunna think/
twice til' i'm hollow and I'll be down with the mice/

At the bottom while I'm rot-tin' dry/
momma don't you cry/

But I cant die without the mission finished/
I have to replinish what fema just didn't so/

Pop it, never gone stop until I'm rockin'/
They will not drop until I'm knockin'/

the one on top, so far i'm not him
but I got him watchin' kem/

Pray, for me - every single day/
I bleed - so they cannot say

That I did I not roar/

--

Life is beautiful/
but I just don't know/

if I'm suitable/
I just want to go/
high and see earth no more/


--

Man I promise that i'm gunna blow/
no more sentimental for my soul/

somebody tell my family that I was a nobody and so
I'm on the road/

gone where the streets are made of gold/
always got peace and never cold/

I just want the beaches made of the crystal hit my feet and then it/
jubilate the flow/

depressed but - don't nobody know/
repressed yes I guess Imma gunna fold/

flesh on me you can see my bones/
I cannot take it there is no more phantom so/

I quit, stop this I don't want the/
rawkus, non-sense they be in my/

pocket makin' me a grench, so no I never ever have a single wish/

nothin is makin' me happy and it's tragic cuz I/
had motivation wit rappin/

I had the industry packin' and bendin' over/
papa stackin' but it never happened it's a dream/

I don't want admit that I'm a fiend/
so I had to get the triple beam/

put it in my arm in the release/
man I'm talkin' lyrics and beats/

I got too, get on my feet/
I'm not you, I'm just me so I/
--

I just wanna soar like an eagle/
holla at me lord cuz I need you/

don't nobody wanna see me so put me out of my misery
can I just below/

cuz I've been avoidin' the steeple/
I just been annoyin' the people/

kemet was a preacher boy but then he all of a sudden
he motivated the evil/

I'm the only one of my kind, and I be feelin'/
the only one on my mind/

never reveal the pysochological bind/
can you feel the etymological rhyme give me time/


I just wanna soar
lion without his roar/
fly to get off this floor/
take me away take me away/

So high,
I don't really care if I die/
nobody cares and gone cry/
the answer is suicide/
Track Name: Step Child
They don't see me as one of them
but I keep thinkin' they're my friends
should I keep peace and just give in
or transform into what I am

I been so god dang patient, patient for you to turn/
and stop the constant hatin', because you know that it burns/

me, I'm a humble poet, some say I do not earn/
the ranks among the coldest, that I just will not earn/

they don't wanna see me elevate the game/
I'm finna beat anybody who's spittin' on my name/

I don't wanna be negative but I'm going insane/
pergatory in the middle top of the flame/

I know I need help cuz I tortured myself/
the omega within' me said hit below belts/

put an ice cube on me I'm prolly gone melt/
another phoney then I'm prolly gone shout/

minimal enemies wanna get up in the center of/
thePhantom* but I kill 'em with the element to die/

lyrical venim I spit the infinite vinegar man/
I sit 'em in a minute so they never gone fly/

how could I cry? they treat me like I'm the/
step child, but soon they will bow/

the first shall be last and the last will first/
that is thephantom philosophy now/

hit 'em wit blow, they don't wanna go/
toe to toe wit' thePhantom* and they know it/

one of the coldest, choppa's outta kc/
independent spitta comin' outta the show-me/

where is the brotherhood like back in the day/
with mlk, malcolm and garvey/

but I'm comin' with the force of the US Army/
when I'm comin' you better be armed, G//

-

Step Child, what is wrong with being different
I'm not yo

Step child, so don't be callin' that, I be representin'/

Step child, born in raised in Kansas City why am I the/

Step child, they call me, step child but I'm not a/

(Repeat)

skip payin' dues you must think that I am a fool i done paid a million who is it goin' to, I aint one to be hatin' you but I'm killin' yo crew/

don't nobody flow wit' an open mind/
but I promise that i'm gunna blow when it's time/

and my emotion is takin' over this rhyme/
cuz this feelin' be hurtin' thePhantom* every single time/

ahh, exhale, I'm never gone fail/
I gotta be on top of the game or they will/

never stoppin' when they rockin' the mic, but it's a mockery/
so get at me I'm finna be sittin' divine with divinity/

stop, let me put it in thirds/
why do you want to kick me to the curb/

I never get love that I think I deserve/
even the wack atleast get a word/

before me, is it cause I'm a threat/
you don't wanna show me love cuz you know that I'm the best/

all while i'm takin' this punch to the chest/
guaranteed I will never be on so so def/

when I'm so so def, definitely head of my time/
don't step, ever to me bringin' the rhyme/

broseph, heaven ull be better than life/
hotep, but I'm gone stress/
