lyrics

[Crescent Moon]
don't time fly like an aeroplane run like the dollars do
sink like bullshit that talk but never follow through
knock a few rhyme books out the attic
cause i'm sick of that radio static

crescent moon that's the name i was given
it came in a vision now it's stained in my pigment
blessed with a baby things changed in an instant
but it shouldn't take that to see the game that you're living

another day another record to play
and i done lifted every crate trying to measure the weight
if it's free they'll say it's better to pay
where will the sheep lead the shepherd today

met many people and seen many places
moved a few crowds that didn't even speak the language
travelled on a dime and some old suit cases
still saw the sun on my ancestors faces

[Chorus]
care at all care to speak
make the call every week
grab a ball make a beat
write it down it's therapy

[Brandon Allday]
say my name on a record
click a pixel with a line form an image with a vector
culture ever evolve and redefine
would not take a word for what i read between the lines

music is a monster like kody or codeine
widely used and acceptable
plus you highly susceptible
song du jour i'm an entrepreneur

wrote a lake city song many here many gone
interfere thankful we intersected inner thought
i'll stop burning flags when the cops quit harassing me
don't know when that'll be

i give it to 'em cause i knew 'em they support as well
i return home like dorothy gale
tell him when you see him that i love him cause he breathing
plus hug him cause he need it

[Chorus]
care at all care to speak
make the call every week
grab a ball make a beat
write it down it's therapy
care at all care to speak
make the call every week
willingness to listen
it's therapy
