Hold steady, the pain won't stop
We, hold steady and head for the top yeah
Hold steady, hold steady, hold steady
It gets heavy, the game won't stop
Hold steady and face all the monsters
Hold steady, get ready, hold steady

Yeah we need to get a grip and hold on
Brick by brick to build it, years developing a prologue that no longer exists
Let the soap opera commence
Within a second separated from the pop and the hiss, the old comfortable feeling I'd been taking for granted
George Orwellian view, reports of missing in action
Pissed away the opportunities to conquer the caption
Couldn't clear the air without losing heir to the castle
So its, zipped lips that'll follow up the swallowed words
Choking on the rhetoric, the end of rope or end of nerves?
I seen it burn and never thought to stop the growth, feel the flames engulf my feet right before I reach the goal so...
End of road? No.
The enemy so close
And it could be anything, anywhere, anyone, many become ghosts
Appendages numb and cold, the feelings phantom
It's hard to hold on without attachment

With my back against the wall
a sword against my throat
I wont ever let you down
can you catch this through the smoke
allow my words to drift and float across your lobes and hemispheres
being caught in your subconscious reverberate inside your ears
a constant state of dread and fear
every tear will set the tone, and come to rest under my eyes, these bags can be their home
My skin aint made of stone but i can break the chains that bind me
my principles are fucked up, i wont let mistakes define me
matter of fact ive been divining
separate myself from negatives i see the silver lining
you see im never smiling im proud of that
the ruins of a child's ancient artifacts
ive been on altered paths, and like an alto sax, i take the high road on a high note eyes is made of solid glass
get down to brass tax and peel away the skin and tissue
expose the bones and nerves, the pain wont be an issue

THEHAZE Los Angeles, California

Emcees Besatree and Kid Presentable!!! (CLDMKRS, Los Angeles, CA) and Haunted days and Witches Teat (Rennes, France) are a collective of artists making music on its own terms. Their self titled ep, is a paranoia laced opus, backed by a cinematic soundscape of ghostly pianos and synths. Walking a thin line between surreal and boombap, #thehaze is underground noir for a new generation. ... more
