Track Name: Give Me Tonight (ft. Hunter Slade)
(Verse 1)
[Hunter Slade] I can feel your energy
[Phrasure] At least I think I do
I've no clue how to react to you
It's sad but true
Huh
[HS] And I can't help but gravitate toward you
[pH] Cause I think that I'm feeling your vibe
I might not be right but I swear that I'm tryin'
[HS] Baby gimme something to hold onto
I like the thought of just surviving the night with you
[pH] But I'm not sure how to approach
Or what I wanna say
But I can't explain how you make me feel this way

(Chorus)
Won't you give me
Something that I-I-I can use up tonight?
I'm a fighter, but I get frightened too
Oh Lord, oh my
I'm alright; I'll be fine
If you give me tonight
I can find peace of mind

(Verse 2)
[pH] I love how you look at me
[HS] But baby I'm not sure of the things that you see
Do you want me or are you just caught up in the heat?
[pH] I can see it in your eyes
Can't you see you give me life?
[HS] But what if I give everything I have to you then some more?
If you don't warm up to me, baby, my blood will be running cold

(Chorus)
Won't you give me
Something that I-I-I can use up tonight?
I'm a fighter, but I get frightened too
Oh Lord, oh my
I'm alright; I'll be fine
If you give me tonight
I can find, find...
Won't you give me
Something that I-I-I can use up tonight?
I'm a fighter, but I get frightened too
Oh Lord, oh my
I'm alright; I'll be fine
If you give me tonight
I can find peace of mind

(Bridge)
[pH] Tell me you want me
Tell me you love me
Tell me that I'm cute and that you think something of me
Tell me that I'm prolly not your type
But you like it cause you think I'm exciting
And I'm so enticing, whoa

[HS] No, don't lie to me
I'm not the one that you're looking for
Tell me I'm not insecure
The things that you say
Burn in my mind 'til I crumble to ashes
But please, tell me more

(Chorus)
Won't you give me
Something that I-I-I can use up tonight?
I'm a fighter, but I get frightened too
Oh Lord, oh my
I'm alright; I'll be fine
If you give me tonight
I can find, find...
Won't you give me
Something that I-I-I can use up tonight?
I'm a fighter, but I get frightened too
Oh Lord, oh my
I'm alright; I'll be fine
If you give me tonight
I can find peace of mind
Track Name: World on Fire
[Verse 1]
Unordinary antics
Send me into a panic
Inordinate circumstances
My mind is going frantic
Sweat beads on my cheeks
I can't see from the steam
I'm gonna unleash when I seem to be free
Please believe that the temperature riding is deliberate
I can't be considerate when all I'm hearing is gibberish
Nothing but the Orbis is making any sense to me
With the legacy we're setting we're taking over indefinitely
Chemistry between us is boiling over the beakers
Spitting fire like dragon sneezes
Exploding through the speakers
I've seen it for myself
We are the burning beacon
If help is what they're seekin'
They'll need to take a seat and
See the Bad and the Evil when our Lighters are at the ceiling
We won't conceal our meaning once we get a proper greeting
I'm ready to burn these vermin who curse on sight of these persons
What is it worth unless we engulf the Earth?

We 'bout to set the world on fire [x2]

[Chorus]
(We're gonna set the world on fire)
Watch the cities go up in smoke
(We're gonna set the world on fire)
It's about that time we awoke
(We're gonna set the world on fire)
We'll be the ones that you wanna remember
(We're gonna set the world on fire)
Until the raging fires become dying embers

[Verse 2]
Big Sean said that he set the World Ablaze on Hall of Fame
But we can see that things have changed
It's a shame to say the least
We're The Arsonists in the streets
Cause Through the Fire and the Flames
We'll remain the ones that you can't hold a candle to our names
But Light 'em Up, Light 'em Up
They still won't be bright enough
Fall Out when the times are tough
Boy, you sure do have it rough
Don't get Caught in the Crossfire
Put your name in the Goblet
We started out with a Bonfire
Now it's Childish to try and stop it
On this Camp site, I'm befriending the Fireflies
Adding Fuel to the Flame, watching the Fire in the Sky
Throwing Matches from the rivers
Attempting to Burn the Bridges
An Inferno of this Caliber has been my Soul intention
We pride the Fire Emblem, assembling into our power
Now we Ask the Ashes of the Burnt Flowers
That Blossom and Burn for the sake of desire
If you had the option, would you still Play with Fire?

Phrasure

[Chorus]
(We're gonna set the world on fire)
Watch the cities go up in smoke
(We're gonna set the world on fire)
It's about that time we awoke
(We're gonna set the world on fire)
We'll be the ones that you wanna remember
(We're gonna set the world on fire)
Until the raging fires become dying embers

We're gonna set the world on
Fire
Track Name: Brainstormin' (ft. InkLine)
[Verse 1 - Phrasure]
pH
TO

You know I keep the fans' hands
Bouncin' like a tennis ball
Ridin' with no tints at all
Tempora Orbis army, I'm the sergeant and the general
pH spit acidic with the lyrics when he kill it
And I meant it when I said that I won't quit it 'til I'm finished
Came a long way with my sound and
Changed some of the people surrounding
Now I'm doin' better without 'em
Cause I've got a ton of this power
Kickin' down doors that are dead bolted
Comin' for rappers' heads, throats, and
Leavin' they bodies dead, roasted
You ain't never met a man so sick
Listening to Wonderlust confirms that this the renaissance
Shouts to TMR
We are all
In this gear so, nah
We ain't tryna shift and switch lanes on you lames
We the same since we came in the game
There's no change
Only thing that's different is I'm better than I was then
No discussion
I'm so disgustin'
Tell your cousin, auntie, uncle, sister, brother, father, wifey, husband
We lightyears ahead of the game the way we buzzin'

Phrasure

[Verse 2 - InkLine]
Pardon me...
Hey Phrasure, lemme talk to 'em for a minute, man
I feel like I need to explain something
NB

Yo
Pardon me I'm cold hearted, kinda hard to phase me
Part of me departed 'cause the system sorta raised me
They killed me in the pen but I've been resurrected lately
To redirect my anger, you're in danger, seeking safety
Shelter
Brainstormin' all over parades
While they watching from the sidelines wishing they could play
Dismally amazed by the visual display
In a rage, pitch grenades at the face of your charades
Flip a phrase, same phase, different page
Fixated on the ways it'll change if it pays
Watch 'em dissipate if I don't reciprocate
I'ma need to take 6 sick days diggin' graves
7th day I rested
Yeah I need my beauty sleep
Heaven manifested
Rejuvenated beautifully
Represent what's true to me
Righteously and fruitfully
And write a eulogy performing voodoo at the jubilee

Ink
Nerves Badd...
Track Name: Keep It Alive
[Verse]

I'm ready to emerge from the underground where I came
Jakob Frazier is the name, and nothing will be the same
It's insane to think that I can chase my dream
And change things when I hear my name ring
It pains me to say that I almost lost it for a minute
Once Wonderlust was finished, my passion was just diminished
A tad bit
I was feeling so average
And now I'ma spit so savage like I can't quit
It's madness in my mind
It takes to find the right rhymes so I can let my mic shine
I ain't come for comfort
I'm movin' upwards
I'm not one for slumber
Right now I'm under
I've been kicked and spit on, pushed around
But the plan is to run my town
I don't want no crown, but what I've found
Is these other guys need to tone it down
I don't want another sound from these carbon copies
I can get the next big hit from Kinkos, prolly
I just wanna be the one from the B
That you think of when I unleash these schemes
And I see that it seems that me and my team
Are on the brink of owning the scene, I believe
I EATsleepbreatheBLEED hip-hop
TO is headed to the tip-top
Of lists and articles and charts, ya know
And into homes all across the globe

[Hook]
But I ain't got time to waste
I ain't tryna play games
I ain't tryna stay safe
I'm just tryna pave a way
For the 205 to thrive
Help me keep it alive

It's Phrasure, Danger
Track Name: Copper Into Gold (ft. Bully Pop, ET The Renaissance Mann & Richard Daniel)
[Intro - Bully Pop (ET The Renaissance Mann)]
bustin' in doors cause the key is twisted bent
We're shining like copper from the 2016 mint
We're burning down bridges cause we're feeling like we're spent
Falling like pennies from the 2016 mint
(Yea yea yea yea
The pH levels are out the roof out here, boy
Yo, shout out that boy Phrasure
TO
Ricardeaux, I see you, boy
The Renaissance Mann...)

[Verse 1 - ET The Renaissance Mann]
I got the sack in my pocket, but I'm not the quarterback
I was in the middle of the cut in the cul-de-sac
Coppin' copper, coppin' gold, I didn't need a map
Opened up Pandora's Box, and I didn't close it back
The rest remains to be seen like that ancient artifact
Sittin' in the museum, don't have a heart attack
If you didn't follow that
He's a Gemini, as a matter fact
Been in the states since 9/11. lost my mind in '97
You gotta hand it to me, I work hard
Never need nothin' handed to me
We on the rise, y'all barely movin'
They couldn't find a better student
I learned from the best
I was dope before the dope
I was 8 in the 80's
I'm done patiently waiting, I said

[Chorus - Bully Pop (Richard Daniel)]
We're bustin' in doors cause the key is twisted bent
We're shining like copper from the 2016 mint
We're burning down bridges cause we're feeling like we're spent
Falling like pennies from the 2016 mint
You can change my mind but you can't change copper into gold
You can't change my mind, but it might be what I need, you know
(Yea yea
Uh, it's TO
Phrasure waddup
You know what is
Just be on the lookout, you know what I'm sayin'
We on the come up
Yea yea)

[Verse 2 - Richard Daniel]
I'm in my zone or something
Phrasure I think that we onto something
I remember when they told me "Get along"
Nah, they wouldn't even throw the dog a bone
You know what it feel like to feel alone
I use that feeling when I kill a song
I lean back, chillin' when I hear it come on
Like ain't nobody else on the level I'm on
The upper echelon is impeccable, and I'm on the throne
I left all the competitors home
I been had the block, didn't pass the rock
Cause when you make every shot, you don't pass a lot
And that's cool
I'll just take "w"
Double trouble, these double entendres
Shootin' for bills, I'm like a duck hunter
All on Duck Dynasty, it's the prodigy
If you competin' with me, then you prolly not
I'm just nice enough to let you remain there inside your spot
I never had to front, the people enjoy my real life
Maybe you should live yours just to see what it feels like
Daniel

[Chorus]
We're bustin' in doors cause the key is twisted bent
We're shining like copper from the 2016 mint
We're burning down bridges cause we're feeling like we're spent
Falling like pennies from the 2016 mint
You can change my mind but you can't change copper into gold
You can't change my mind, but it might be what I need, you know

[Verse 3 - Phrasure]
I was feelin' rusted a couple of months ago
So I stepped out of my comfort zone
I dropped Wonderlust and put on some shows
Now I'm feeling like one big chunk of gold
I can't wait 'til lists and blogs and articles all just
Praise us
I'm no Travi$ Scott but I feel our hits are goin'
Straight up
La Flame
That's what I'm spittin'
I'm committed to meeting the opposition with resistance
The intention is to finish the competition
That's how we livin'
I'm livid cause they're hopin' that I'll quit it
But I ain't stoppin' until I shine bright
'Til Phrasure is in that limelight
And Tempora Orbis is full in orbit
Everybody just get your mind right
I ain't stoppin' until I shine bright
'Til Phrasure is in that limelight
And Tempora Orbis is full in orbit
Everybody just get your mind right

[Chorus]
We're bustin' in doors cause the key is twisted bent
We're shining like copper from the 2016 mint
We're burning down bridges cause we're feeling like we're spent
Falling like pennies from the 2016 mint
You can change my mind but you can't change copper into gold
You can't change my mind, but it might be what I need, you know
Track Name: Scared Outta My Mind
[Verse 1]
Let me start off by saying
I'm so grateful to see the day
Where I can look into my brand new baby's crying and smiling face
And think to myself how this is about to change my world
Nevertheless, I'm excited to meet this boy or this girl
We didn't expect it, but we were so naive
Cause after all of those negative tests, we just couldn't believe it
Huh, looks like Dear You is coming into life
With all this love for my wife, I feel nothing could be so nice
But
Don't get me wrong
I still have all of those same fears that I mentioned in that song
And I try night after night to iron 'em out
And even still when I end up with all of that doubt
I smile to myself, cause at the end of the day
I know everything we do will end up okay
We're gonna make mistakes
That's just the nature
But he or she will be perfect as the brand new baby Frazier

[Chorus]
I'm headed on this brand new journey
Where all day, all I'll do is worry
I'm scared out of my mind
I'm scared out of my mind
I can't even think straight
Waiting for the due date
I'm scared out of my mind
I'm scared out of my mind, hey

[Verse 2]
What are we gonna do?
Money doesn't grow on trees
I've got a brand new mouth to feed
We have a certain amount of needs to be met
I've gotta make ends me
And I'm stressed to my wit's end
But I won't let myself fall into debt
Still I'm gonna spoil my wife and my kid
Cause I just wouldn't feel right if I didn't
I place happiness over money, put that on my tomb
I'd do most anything for the Elephant in the Womb
I
Turn on that Macklemore, listen to Ed Sheeran
Play that Dizzy Wright, and I love what I'm hearin'
They're going through the same things
Be it fictional or real
I appreciate the ways they're able to help me deal
But still I smile to myself, cause at the end of the day
I know everything we do will end up okay
We're gonna make mistakes
That's just the nature
But he or she will be perfect as the brand new baby Frazier

[Chorus]
I'm headed on this brand new journey
Where all day, all I'll do is worry
I'm scared out of my mind
I'm scared out of my mind
I can't even think straight
Waiting for the due date
I'm scared out of my mind
I'm scared out of my mind, hey

I'm headed on this brand new journey
Where all day, all I'll do is worry
I'm scared out of my mind
I'm scared out of my mind
I can't even think straight
I'm waiting for the due date
I'm scared out of my mind
I'm scared out of my mind
