Track Name: Rh Xanders, RBTO - Blue Light
[Hook:RBTO]
Blue light, true might
Shine like a young star
Glow in the dark night
Guide those who've come far
Illuminate the faith it takes to make haste
While the soul rejuvenates

[Verse 1:RBTO]
Lemmie flow to the sea
To drift amongst ocean tides
Let the currents guide
As insurance I
Keep it bona-fide
While it coincides
With the rhymes that I profecie
Over this commotion my emotions
Open swollen eyes
Of the victimized
From the lies of this enterprise
Im heaven sent to die
My only prize is to live a life
So come what may
My loved ones say
Hold on, stay strong
You'll be done one day
But till then i've got a road to pave
I'll have fun, till thats done
Still got myself a world to save
I guess first, I gotta learn from my old mistakes
If you relate, i've got the nerve to pray
Check it
Dear god up in heaven lookin down from above
It's so true, I know you
Keep on showing me love
Pull thru with your best plan there ever was
Keep me safe and keep me off the drugs
Amen

[Hook:RBTO & Rh Xanders]
Blue light, true might
Shine like a young star
Glow in the dark night
Guide those who've come far
Illuminate the faith it takes
To make haste while the soul rejuvenates

[Verse 2:Rh Xanders]
Unconsciousness is the disease
I'm going crazy feeling like I'm the only one who see's what I see
Sometimes my sleeping friends become my worst enemies
Cause most of us are blind to our true entities
To tell you the truth, i've seen the messiah
Every time I try to tell people they label me a liar
Cause they only see the fraction, never the entire
Situation that is happening, blinded by the fire

He told me all we really need to do is reconnect
We are connected to everything but one part will not accept
The truth that we are one organism kept in check
By a creator of a higher intelligence, different depths
Everyone i've ever seen is just an external reflection of what's internal
We're in a cosmic intersection
The physical perception's not a miserable direction
Its a fragment of God's beautiful picture of perfection

[Hook:RBTO & Rh Xanders]
Blue light, true might
Shine like a young star
Glow in the dark night
Guide those who've come far
Illuminate the faith it takes
To make haste while the soul rejuvenates
Track Name: Rhythm Of Christ
[Verse 1: RBTO]
I get on my knees and repent
For every second that fled
For every sentence I said
That never went through my head
Instead it manifested itself
Through a reckless intent
'Til your reflection indents
To leave the microphone drenched
And when you peep what it meant
You realize he felt the world through a pen
And never lied about the work he put in
He couldn't, wouldn't
Bend to let it all dissolve into sin
Instead he gives it up along with the wind
This ain't a fad or a trend
Its navigation thru the pattern of men
To contemplate and find the truth in the end
Its how we celebrate the fruits of the day
And never let it to waste
Its how we slow it down to speed up the pace
Its in the look of the face
When you hear it hit the snare and the bass
And when you hear it spit the flare and the grace
Its in a mothers embrace
Its the faith of a will and a way
The way it shakes, makes you feel it in space
Everyday I say

[Hook:RBTO]
Life is
Livin' the light
Over the vices
I write this
Bit of advice
Hopin' it might get
You through the night
In the middle of crisis
And move to the rhythm of christ

[Verse 2:RBTO]
I often contemplate upon the long await
Beyond the date of which my thought would ever propagate
Until I learn the names of the stars
I've made it this far
To go beyond without a plane or a car
And im holdin' on to love cause im insane in the art
In and out until im bathin' in scars
I never hated my part
To be apprentice of a crazy wizard
Serenadin' till the maidens is ours!
And its hard
To trust the word of a man
But if you're a man of your word
You would be fit to withstand any battling nerd
And many chatter is heard
Instead of havin' to earn credit
They be takin' on debit till they ass is happily served
This sadly recurs, like a disease
That we actullay deserve
Its rather disturbed
But if your family prefers
You gotta listen up close and observe
The miracle works
If you believe that it could shatter the curse
(and)

[Hook:RBTO]
Life is
Livin' the light
Over the vices
I write this
Bit of advice
Hopin' it might get
You through the night
In the middle of crisis
And move to the rhythm of christ
Track Name: Bloom
[Verse 1:RBTO]
One, two
Im 'bout to kick it off like it's kung-fu
New art of war like I summoned it from Sun Tzu
Some dudes fall asleep when I come to
But it don't stop train of thought when it runs thru
My brain manages
The amethyst
Shade of cannabis
Stay animate and move like an abacus
The way I handle it eradicate contaminants
Smooth as the groove set the mood
For the analyst
Open panel it
I hope it's dope and adequate
Enough to satisfy your whole shenanigan
It's automatic and you know you don't gotta panic
Cause I man it like the pope does the vatican
Manic at the math again
Imagining
Paddling the waves time traveling
Mapping out the maze, rhyme babbling
While unraveling the day
Dibba dabble in the race
Floating on to outer space
Vanishing

[Hook:RBTO]
One time for divine
Spirit intertwined
With the universe and mind
I search inverse and rhyme
In this space immersed in time
Meditate and elevate the soul vibration
Nationwide

[Verse 2:RBTO]
It's something like the
Balcony alchemy
Cavalry-vowed valkyrie
Allowed to be as loud as a live crowd is about to be
Undoubtedly appease the passing breeze
We easy packin' trees
Sparkin' up like stars and galaxies
I see the gravity beneath the cavity
The surface gettin' weak
And its sad to see the tragedy enact the scene
I mean I can't believe
With our capacity
It's sorta whack we lack the action not the strategy
To remedy the dire need
Of findin' higher creed
Instead of lying, buying mad supplies of irony
Standing idley kinda like a false idol
Lost title in the line of the vital deed
Its either we forget the rivalry
Annihilate entirely
Or violently stay in denial
Humanity's been awaiting the trial
Date set in the dial
Guess the destination is final

[Hook:RBTO]
One time for divine
Spirit intertwined
With the universe and mind
I search inverse and rhyme
In this space immersed in time
Meditate and elevate the soul vibration

Track Name: June Marieezy, RBTO - Sometimes (first take)
[Verse 3:RBTO]
I've been livin' in this head splittin' rhythm
Been misled, fed and sickened
With the meds and religion
Middle finger up fuck the system
Couldn't stomach their decision
Outta luck, stuck and wishin'
We landed on this earth for a mission
But we lurked in position
Gettin' worse in condition
Instead of makin' work
We've been pissin' on its worth
Gettin' lost in our perverse competition
But sometimes I find divine wisdom
Behind the blind instant
Defined in my intent
Im takin' my time to rhyme in sync to my sublime instinct to find the fine imprint
Be kind and rewind the mind engine
Untie the binds clenching your shine to high-tension
Relax and recline to my sentence
Apply the dimensions
To guide your direction
My written's refined in dissection
Provides a wide entrance to my supply segment
A simple design, where you and I intertwine, within a blink of an eye
Forever ours to reside
Track Name: Irrational Thought
[Verse 1:RBTO]
Im 'bout to write about this girl
Some of ya'll know her, Some of ya'll dont
Some of ya'll sober And some of ya'll smoke
Some of ya'll loners When summer's all over
All fun and all jokes Till one of ya'll chokes
Then, it's all broke
You summon all hope
While runnin' off roads
And swingin' on rope
Just to catch a glimpse of her eminent glow
As i've been ever since at your local rock show
Cause she can rock beats
And I can rock flows
While I would raise heat
She could make the rain pour
Now isint that sweet
More than I could ask for
I love her so deep
Couldn't see the end goal
That's seemingly bleak
But the feeling enfolds
While it affects me
With no reason enclosed
You probably don't believe
Like, I'm about to explode
Gettin' fully exposed
Yet I don't mean to impose

[Hook :RBTO]
And, so what, so what, so what
If we don't talk, so much, so much, so much
I just gotta show up
And we could chill out like a couple grown-ups
Love drunk and im 'bout to throw up
Haziness
And, so what, so what, so what
If she's a crazy bitch
I love her so much, so much
Im so afraid of it
Cause every little inch I take is dangerous
And ima take the risk
Cause she's my favorite

[Verse 2:RBTO]
State of bliss 'till im trippin'
Ain't hard to tell by the way it was written'
In the stars and the shells
To propel my description
Where the endlessness dwells in between her decisions
I didn't even ask for permission
I just felt compelled to expel inhibition
Driven by the livin' force of harmony and perfect rhythm
In tradition of my position of our grand solar system
And even as I drown in the drink
Every sound makes me think
She's around every other blink
I guess my mind's been playing tricks on me
I thought she tried to lay a kiss on me
You know the joke's on me
With these emotions she evokes on me
I write a note for you to quote for free
And just in case you tryin' to battle
I hope you know I spit from the heart
Even love couldn't tear me apart
Until it's over im like

[Hook :RBTO]
And, so what, so what, so what
If we don't talk, so much, so much, so much
I just gotta show up
And we could chill out like a couple grown-ups
Love drunk and im 'bout to throw up
Haziness
And, so what, so what, so what
If she's a crazy bitch
I love her so much, so much
Im so afraid of it
Cause every little inch I take is dangerous
And ima take the risk
Cause she's my favorite
Track Name: Multiply Motivation
[Verse 1:RBTO]
So I stepped into the room and saw a dim lamp light
Can't seem to focus my eyes on the surroundings
Cluttered, they all seem to have something to say
But on the same wall all I see is clutter
Now the laundry stays in the way unless you move it
Cups and plates stay in the tray unless you use it
Bathroom won't clean itself
Shit stacked around the corners
Cause' I dont own a shelf
I could pour you a glass and you could give me a smile
But I gotta take the trash out every once in a while
Im the only moving object in this on-going-offset
Kept in this concrete complex
Its midnight, writin' insight, hopin it might
Make you think of how you living your life
In the rights I ignite to excite
Enlight and invite
Ya'll to sit tight as I recite
The thoughts that got me lost in the moment
Carefully woven, then thrown in the open
Hopin' to be layin' in the sea of your conciouncicus
Serves as a scarf
Not as a compass

[Hook:RBTO]
And I keep on sweeping this house alone
No sidetracks im on my own
Time keeps going with the metronome
As each flow goes thru the microphone
And each piece speaks of a story
Revealin' itself to whom it looks for
Came with an aim to tame the lame copy
Remainin' the same throughout the rain pour

[Verse 2:RBTO]
Sometimes the clouds come to cast a grey sky
Sometimes the clouds go to let the rays shine
Sometimes the roads clog with smog
And sometimes its filled up with nothing at all
And even in the silence
You can hear the tension
Twisting its grip around its invention
Tied to fear, controlled by imaginary puppeteers
How you gonna let em' steer and hope to get outta here?
I remain captain of this vessel
Came to fertilize every shore that I settle
Made to verbalize, recognize its a germicide
In this enterprise, I decide to revitalize
Cause I reside in unrevised analogy
Neither side alive to subsidize our reality
So when im done happily, fillin' up this cavity
Then i'll prolly roll out casually

[Bridge:RBTO]
To each his own
To find his own way home
To each his own
To find his own way home

[Outro:RBTO]
Lemmie burn this inferno
Internally hurdle
Eternally fertile for serve to be worth, your concerns to be heard
Let every single crayon color up the earth to the moon
And every single prayer pavin' up the universe too
Time to realize the grater size that lies before your very eyes
Justify! testify!
Time to realize the greater size that lies before your very eyes
Multiply, multiply, MULTIPLY!
Track Name: August Wahh, RBTO - Hermano
[Verse 1: Abs]
Brother killing brother
Takes a toll on one another
Cause we blinded the lies
And the promise to be richer

Fighting over money. It’s sad really
Forgetting all those days
When we were kids and bein’ silly
We were once family

Don’t you miss those yesteryears
When we swore to one another
That we would look out for each other

Hanging on a thread. (It’s mayhem. It’s stupid.)
To wish a brother dead
(Just cos greed consumed the spirit)

[Hook: Abs]
Brother, brother, brother…. brother

[Verse 2:RBTO]
Brother man, brother man
Doing all you can
Just to free the seven seas and the foreign lands
In a place they separated due to race and mutual hatred
Now you livin' in a space they call a state to make a statement
Ain't it blatant how they’re rearranging history books
Small tales, big lies
Left our chemistry shook
It’s a damn big sign that we’re livin with crooks
And you’ve signed the dotted line if you took a good look
Yeah, we’re probably whopped
By the loops and the hooks
Who knows who cares? It’s the effort it took
Right?
So lemmie' get it straight till everything looks nice
It’s the trip not the destination
Go live a good life
Man, are you kidding me
Stop spittin' stupidity
Ya wack soliloquy
Ain't no sign of virtuosity
At best, your probability
At possible delivery
Is still a mystery
And yes- you’re still a bum officially
So talk about my drive and don’t gas me up
If I jot between the lines and I filled your cup
It’s a walk between the minds
And a stop between the finds
And it ought to undermine such a complicated crime
My

[Hook: Abs]
(brother, brother, brother…. brother)
It shouldn’t be this way between, brothers
(brother, brother, brother….brother)
Were not suppose to hate our own brother
(brother, brother, brother….brother)
We’re thicker than water brother
(brother, brother, brother….brother)
Wouldn’t want you buried under, brother
Track Name: JedLi, Raw MF, RBTO - Galactica
[Hook: RBTO]
Just cruise
Leaving on the streets only memories of truth
Kinesthetically infused with the energies of youth
You can feel it in a beat when it settles in the groove
Keep it tight or let it loose
Doesn't matter if you cruise

[Verse 1:RBTO]
It's been a long road traveling
To reach the microphone
In the zone, flow lavishing
My dome is prone to capturing tones
Handling shows, mangling foes
Managing hoes and damaging clones
I'm manning the post and scanning the cost
Blowing a drag full of vanishing smoke at panicking folk
Cause I ain't' trying to evoke manic revolt
Im trying to be hired to inspire results
And when I retire
I plan to speak fire in church and greet choirs
Without fantasies hidden inert within my desires
I seek to peak higher
And lead the meek via
A transition discreet until I sleep tired
Deep beneath within the keep in where my dreams breed
Conceived to provide the vision that my peeps need
Believe, I only spit it true
You what it do im commin' thru with the Vito Crew
So we can cruise

[Hook: RBTO & JedLi]
Just cruise
Leaving on the streets only memories of truth
Kinesthetically infused with the energies of youth
You can feel it in a beat when it settles in the groove
Keep it tight or let it loose
Doesn't matter if you cruise
Track Name: Twilight On The Sea
[Hook:RBTO]
And when the moon shines
She cries 'till the tides swell high
Screamin' for the sky
Cursed under my spell
As I fell, flyin' thru a blind hell
Lyin' juvenile stealth of a wild child
Ruined my health
For a tinge of twilight
In the finite of my life
Reflection refracts in my eyesight
As I write
Despite the fear of disappearing
Beyond the night
Forever wandering, conquering

Verse:
Calm as the eye of the storm as she approaches
Hostess of baffling form provoked psychosis
I know this, i've had it before, im no novice
The whole globe was slo-mo, bro
Before you noticed
The sky ripped open a hole that spoke hopeless
The lightning and thundering strokes emote solace
The wind howls and I yell back
Stay focused
Its no joke
Im tied to these ropes
No protest
She pierced like a thorn of a rose
The rain battering
Shattering every bone
As I slipped off ship
Slid a slippery slope
Lord hearin me, nope
Pass to heaven revoked
Lost but really im home
Driftin' off on her waves
Brought to life in the glow
Soft as light in her gaze
Sharp as scythe in the soul
Dark as night in a maze
Hard as ice in the cold
Farthest ive ever made
Story ive never told

[Hook:RBTO]
And when the moon shines
She cries 'till the tides swell high
Screamin' for the sky
Cursed under my spell
As I fell, flyin' thru a blind hell
Lyin' juvenile stealth of a wild child
Ruined my health
For a tinge of twilight
In the finite of my life
Reflection refracts in my eyesight
As I write
Despite the fear of disappearing
Beyond the night
Forever wandering, conquering
Track Name: RBTO, Carlo Bernardino, HiraBeat - Move On
[Verse 1:RBTO]
I jot down a line
To redesign
The feeble minds
That waste their time
And redefine
Vocation rhymes
They patronize
Through all the lies
You’ll be surprised
To realize
That it’s an evil crime
To make you believe you’re fine
And make you forget that
You wanted to live a life
Now you’re a sacrifice
Livin’ the world’s device
Sittin' like merchandise
Now is it worth the price?
Lemmie get a move on
Cause this road ain't movin' itself
They say that walkin’s good for your health
So ima take my steady steps
Until I reach the final stretch
And never give you any less than I possess

[Hook:RBTO]
Now lemmie get a move on

[Verse 2:RBTO]
This chick that leaves me breathless
I know I wanna breathe
But I couldn’t find the exit
This highway’s goin' haywire
And this busted tire’s tryin’ to prove that there will be no second hand buyers
I ain't a liar
I be chasin’ my desire
And I feel hella tired but I guess im also inspired
In my attire ima drive till I perspire
Cause im harnessing the fire to further this little empire
Time to gas up at the Pitstop
They had ten kegs of fuel and was listening to HipHop
My wrist watch whispered time was an illusion
So I got to the conclusion like a student

[Hook 2:RBTO]
We gotta get a move on!
Cause these dreams don’t weave themselves
It's do or die and ima pry apart this sordid shell
Expose the hell that they camouflage with all their spells
So ya’ll could tell the time like
We gotta get a move on!

[Verse 3:RBTO]
Change the world with a vacuum
And if you need proof try to clean up your bathroom
It only takes you a little motivation
Plus some concentration
For this consecration that im demonstrating
I hope in penetrating everything you’re emulating
I hope im elevating everything you’re celebrating
While im regenerating
Inspiration
Innovating
Entertaining ways to renovate your whole perception in it
And im the best releavin’ stress while im progressin’ with it
So more or less I pass the test if im presented with it/
And if I don’t I'd rather choke
And go for broke
If it’s the only way to let these people know

[Hook 3:RBTO]
That’s how you get a move on!
I said it
You get it
Heavy poetic aesthetics
Embedded so epic
You never expected
To be affected
So check the credits
It’s all in the edit
As long as you ment it
You’ll never regret it
Now you gotta move on
