"E.Y.E brings a good times sound that can easily translate from a bouncing club to a beachside campfire. While checking out their new project Aint no Sunshine I proclaimed “that’s my favorite track” at least five times and was left with a get up and do some living feeling when it was over. This album...without the cliche quotes or any agenda besides go hard or go home." - Locash Magazine ... more

Ain't No Sunshine feat. Mauricio Whitford
Engineers in Your Ear
Copyright 2011, Engineers in Your Ear

Aint No Sunshine when she's gone
it's not warm when she's away
aint No Sunshine when she's gone
and she's always gone too long
anytime she goes away
I wonder this time where she's gone
I wonder this time if she's gonna stay
There aint no sunshine when she's gone
and this house just aint a home
when she's gone away

(Turn the headphones up)
I’m feelin some things that I haven’t felt in so long
The past five years I’ve been building on this wall
Why would I ever trust a girl again, all she’s ever gonna do me is wrong
I’ve made some bad decisions in my past days
But them same terrible moments made me who I am today
I finally got a chance to break down this wall
I met a girl who makes me happy and I’m gonna risk it all
I know it’s gonna be difficult, but the feeling is different
Cause she’s kind and considerate and she’s super intelligent
I know it’s irrelevant, but she’s beautiful as ever
Fell like I’ve know her forever, and forever is a long time
I wrote a long rhyme, there ain’t no sunshine
When shes gone and up taken off for the state line
I hope that I never have to feel that again
But I’m willing to risk it all for a single chance to live

And I know I outta leave a young thing alone
but aint no sunshine when she's gone
only darkness every day
aint no sunshine when she's gone
and this house just aint no home
anytime she goes away

I woke up today
I guess the fight we had last night pushed her away
I looked around & everything looked the same
except I saw a note that my focus was the fame
I guess I lost myself for a minute
thought that I was high and mighty and that everyone was with it
But that's when something happend, saw the spark leave her EYE
and I knew that we were finished and she didn't even cry
gotta get back with this, gotta get back with her, gotta prove that I'm not just in this to win this
but she can still feel the passion in my kiss
she was my bliss, she's still my everything, and I gotta fix this
but the only way that I can get her back
is to change myself like a heart attack
and feelin all the energy between us two
there's just nothin quite like it, and there's nothin to prove
when I'm with that girl were just on the move
but we gotta grow together that's the only way to groove
so now I roam the world just tryin to find
something like her but there's none of that design
she was so free yet so refined
and I'll be damned before i ever find another of her kind...

Oh she's gone
only darkness every day
Aint no sunshine when she's gone
and this house just aint a home anytime she goes away
Track Name: Front Row feat. Type
(Engineers in Your Ear... got the homie Type - Nothing like a lost take though....we'll get it....right here)

Idolizing all my biggest inspirations
Sittin back as a fan gotta have a little patience
So you ask a little bit of help from your favorite emcee
A couple years later, you'll be there...you'll see...

I remember it like it was yesterday
Dreaming and fascinating about rockin on the stage
and I - always knew that I would end up in the right place
Always knew that I would make the move someday
It's so hard to make the right decisions
So I sit back and listen to my favorite emcees
And I studied every move - headphones I'm listening
So I asked him for a favor, like can you help me
From this point on I knew this this was my destiny
but I gotta understand the microphone can get the best of me
So I'll live my life comin straight from my heart
and don't care what other people even think from the start
These are my flaws - this is my life -
A very clear future is what I see in my sights
I'm headed up to the stage right about now
To tell you bout the life that I recently found

(Pauly B) This is my life, the one I chose
Standing in the front row all the fans on their toes - yah
This is how we make a difference on the stage
This is how we're gonna make some change

(Kylo Rich)This is my life, the one I chose
Standing in the front row all the fans on their toes - yah
This is how we make a difference on the stage
This is how we're gonna make some change

Today I'm really happy even though nothing has changed
Still don't have no money but at least a brand new day
I got a girl that loves me, got people who'd feed me
And I had to sell my car but that's the lesson of a DUI (pronounced duey)
And tryin to be like Ghandi meanwhile drinkin beer and whiskey
And I think that I might get it, at least today I do
And my sister and me are back as friends again it's true
we had a little hiatus but there's nothin fam can't do
And I guess that it's the moment, the way I realize I don't own it
The way everything works out when my energy is flowin
And I had a dream last night that I'd escape but where was I goin
Clothes in my suitcase and my family with me rollin
But a strangers at the wheel, and I said he'd take the blame
If anyone came lookin cause we ditched out on the game
But I wake, there's no one else, deep down were all the same
And if I stop runnin can I really learn to live again?

Today's the only day that I ever need to live
And its true what they say all you need is what you give
Even if I don't have nothing I might like to make a bid
On all the love we show each other even when things end

(Kylo Rich)This is my life, the one I chose
Standing in the front row all the fans on their toes - yah
This is how we make a difference on the stage
This is how we're gonna make some change

(Pauly B) This is my life, the one I chose
Standing in the front row all the fans on their toes - yah
This is how we make a difference on the stage
This is how we're gonna make some change

[Type's Verse]
Track Name: Til The Clouds Run Dry feat. Mac Lethal (Pterodactyl Remix)
Alarm went off at six, woke up & took a sip
of some coffee got my things ready and checked them off my list.
Wait...I'm thinking something brash.
Was I blessed with all my Life just to revolve it all around cash?
And I might see, wait, do really I believe
that the World's tellin me if I try, I will succeed?
Are the naysayers sayin that I'm crazy just afraid
that it might really be possible and they can't break away?
Well, every hour, every minute, every second
that I'm livin I'll be lovin nothin better than to govern
my own wishes, my decisions.
Imagine that I'm dreamin of eliminatin fear from my sensation,
new perception, times are changin.
So I soar as the sun rise till my cloud run dries.
No limit with elevator eyes.
Earth & Heaven collide, quantum world inside.
In the end, I can say that I tried.

We can make it if we try and we don't ask why.
Keep our heads in the sky til the clouds run dry.
We can make it if we try.

You see...just the other day, I was thinkin to myself
I think I might be in a dream, like countin sheep up on the shelf
cause i'm walkin through this life without a worry on shoulder
and i'm so motivated the dedication just takes over
we'll make it if we try and always follow the signs
with these verses we supply, inspiration to your mind
til the day that I go blind, til the day that I lose my hearing
ima keep up with my rhymin and my finest engineering
it's a beautiful if you lookin at the right angle
we do this for you - imagination untangled
my heads in the clouds so my soul is at the sky
but my feet are on the ground cause i'm still learning to fly - high
Ah nah, ima never give up and you can keep on stressin about the things that you want...yah
I see a vision and it's right in front of my eyes so
ima keep on dreamin til the clouds run dry

We can make it if we try and we don't ask why.
Keep our heads in the sky til the clouds run dry.
We can make it if we try.

{Mac Lethal's Verse}
Track Name: Tryin To Do Somethin feat. Kublakai
Tryin To Do Somethin
Engineers in Your Ear
Copyright 2011, Engineers in Your Ear

I'm Tryin to make a move, tryin to get outta town
I'm tryin to sell my house but I'm upside down
I'm tryin to find a job but there's none to be found
I'm tryin to do somethin, tryin to do somethin

I be like checkin on my email while I'm still snug in bed
man did I get that gig I wanted cuz I'm tryin to make some bread
I'm bout to hit the store cuz I need some new threads
to sew some holes in my clothes cuz I'm sweatin hot lead
Doin any side job from sound effects to pop tunes
listen in my iPod and bump it in my living room
but it's been a minute since I had a second
To build a rhyme do it line by line in my mind then wreck it
If I get to take a lunch it's a good day
but I got no money so I never take one anyway
need quarters for my laundry, my girl is always on me
staring at a screen until I turn into a zombie
man if I get desperate it never transpired
catch me smashing pumpkins cuz this world is a vampire
its gettin gruesome, tryin to make a move from
standing up, standing out, and gonna do something

I'm Tryin to make a move, tryin to get outta town
I'm tryin to sell my house but I'm upside down
I'm tryin to find a job but there's none to be found
I'm tryin to do somethin, tryin to do somethin

I'm bout a couple hundred thousand dollars in debt
but that don't mean that I don't got a reason to get outta bed
The housing markets got me flipped upside down
so I'm off to California to find me a new town
I hate to admit, I do this music on the side
I work a 9-5 to pay the bills on time
But I'm tryin to switch it up make this a full time job
so I'm back in college, get the degree and then I gotta mob
My Honda Accord got me rollin down the street
but the 400 dollar a month payment got me beat
All my neighbors movin in with half the payment as mine
any lesser of a man would be going out his mind
but not me, I'm happier than I've ever been
I'm learning everyday and now I'm flowin like the wind
and if you know me then you know I'm dedicated
and I'm tryin to do somethin theres no question I'm gonna make it

I'm standing up and standing out,
gonna do somethin
back to the wall, aint having enough
planning to fall but you have to get up
I'm standing up and standing out,
gonna do somethin
and there's no question I'm a make it

[Kublakai's verse]

I'm Tryin to make a move, tryin to get outta town
I'm tryin to sell my house but I'm upside down
I'm tryin to find a job but there's none to be found
I'm tryin to do somethin, tryin to do somethin

I'm standing up and standing out,
gonna do somethin
back to the wall, aint having enough
planning to fall but you have to get up
I'm standing up and standing out,
gonna do somethin
and there's no question I'm a make it
Track Name: 180 Degrees
I'll be the first one to tell you that i'm not a sane man
I may be crazy but that don't mean that I don't got a plan
I'm also lazy but with these lyrics you will be overran
Makin changes in this world with my thoughts and empty hands
It's my philosophy that the beat will set you free
to battle animosity, grab a pen and get lost with me
a poetic emcee, flowin light as the breeze
180 degrees - from anything you've ever seen

We aint goin nowhere so you better stand clear
E.Y.E. is Engineers in Your Ear
If the pen is mightier, artillery is plentiful
The rhythm of this banger's got your body feelin bendable

I'll be the second man to tell you that I'm crazy insane
born with the craziest brain
it's like it's always in flames
my folded hands are drippin with the blood of blue ink
my only hands are grippin on artillery of think
I got the illest smoothest weapon while I battle the recession
like some pen I got for free is mightier than Smith & Wesson
just poetic Emcee's, yeah 180 degrees
We're two engineers with rhymes and rhythms fresher than Fabreeze

We aint goin nowhere so you better stand clear
E.Y.E. is Engineers in Your Ear
If the pen is mightier, artillery is plentiful
The rhythm of this banger's got your body feelin bendable

Suspendable, like my soul leaped from my body
it's dependable, like this pens a mosberg shotty
it's a war I won't win, its a battle within
put the pen to the paper, now the battle begins

Always a battle again, it's predictable
steppin through the shadow within, it's like subliminal
every moment it's a minimal expansion of the principle
you feel a couple doctors that's been drafted up to generals?

Unsurrenderable, with a style that is unseen
unforgivable with the sounds that are so clean
lyrically, I'm a mess, my soul at unrest
it's probably from the stress, it's all one big test

of wits and dedication, good thing I'm made of patience
music is my meditation out of body separation
engineers bring it back as lyrical pioneers
manifest destiny and conquer any frontier

We aint goin nowhere so you better stand clear
E.Y.E. is Engineers in Your Ear
If the pen is mightier, artillery is plentiful
The rhythm of this banger's got your body feelin bendable
Track Name: Chillin All Night feat. Mauricio Whitford
Chillin All Night
Engineers in Your Ear featuring Mauricio Whitford
Copyright 2011, Engineers in Your Ear

Everyday that we be livin this life
we're tryin to do this up right
and we'll be workin all night
Someday we'll be living the life
we'll have no worries in sight
and we'll be chillin all night

Where do I start when I don’t know what to do?
You said you feel a lot of pain, well I’m feelin the pain too.
Sometimes I wonder if this struggles really worth it.
I’m so focused day to day, that it seems that I'm overworkin.
But I’m certain this decision is the best.
Dedication in the present, in the future we can rest.
Work a full time job today, full time college education.
Only part time I can play, ya’ll know my occupation.
So when I play you know I’m goin all out.
Headin into the city, grab a MIC and rock a crowd.
After putting in the work, you know that it is chillin time.
All my friends by my side and we be chillin….
And we’ll be chillin all night, all night….
The time we livin now will soon be a memory.
I will never be the one to let the rough times get the best of me.

Everyday that we be livin this life
we're tryin to do this up right
and we'll be workin all night
Although we've seen better days
throughout the struggles and pain
we're gonna have to make a change
and now I'm leavin yesterday behind
I see the future in time
it seems so clear in my mind
and we'll be chillin all night
all night

Somedays it just seems like another struggle
get my self outta bed just to work a double
& I know, that tomorrow I'll be back in trouble
Pickin up any side job on the constant hustle (constant hustle)
But I got a plan for myself
an obsessed man, can't really do nothin else
got a grip on my goals but gravity is tryin to weigh in
It's looking like I'm flying but my feat are really hangin
if you don't, if you dont reach high
in the end, in the end you're only gonna get by
and that's why with a little inspiration
we can up on this music with some hip hop innovation
and imagination
expand my mind until my brain explodes
and my head goes through the atmosphere and galaxies are roads
and in the end, they can say I never did what I was told
That's just how my story, how my story goes

Everyday that we be livin this life
we're tryin to do this up right
and we'll be workin all night
Although we've seen better days
throughout the struggles and pain
we're gonna have to make a change
and now I'm leavin yesterday behind
I see the future in time
it seems so clear in my mind
and we'll be chillin all night
all night
Track Name: Flowin With The Wind feat. Shimon
Every now and then, I need to get a moment alone
So I'm rolling solo and you know that I got no phone on
I'm headed to a place so I can catch some peace
A mountain side, in the middle of the lake or a beach
It doesn't really matter where im goin
As long as the skys above me and the wind is blowin
With a breeze through the tips of the trees
It's things like these that will continually, keep me flowin with ease
(gotta be feelin me on this one - somethin like that)
I lost a really good friend the other night
He was my brother, my homie, so now my pen begins to cry
I only wish I had a chance to say goodbye
I only wish I had a chance to say goodbye
If I could then I would tell him that I miss him
That his Mom sends kisses, Dad, Brother, and his sister
All love him and they miss him and oh hey Christopher....
I forgot to tell you - the Packers won the Superbowl

I’m livin life, it’s a really good time
I’m livin life, through the freedom of my mind
I’m livin life the only way that I know
I’m livin life just goin with the flow
I’m livin life, it’s a really good time
I’m livin life, through the freedom of my mind
I’m livin life til the day that it ends
I’m livin life just flowin with the wind

I've been flowin with the wind
tryin to find some place I've been
thank god for GPS cause I'm lost in a rhyme again
so i gotta punch a couple letters in my phone
rearrange the alphabet to express where I've roamed
seen life turn to bones, impossible becomes known
to be proven wrong again but that was a stepping stone
In the river that's the the rythmn of life
I see right through it with the music in my mind as a light
on the mic on some night catch me flowin to a crowd
rowin some boat with some notes in the sky on a cloud...
In a dynamic spiral, but all in a vial
multi-universes like a cell going viral
and my soul isn't inside me, I've searched
I'm inside my soul, it's the whole universe
actually multiverse is what I really should say
all possibilities of time and place exist in which I play
And my awareness is growing in consciousness without knowing but i'm goin
and what is this but a moment of flowing
But what I really always try to know
is how to live with thanks, live with hope and make the best of where I flow, so

I’m livin life, it’s a really good time
I’m livin life, through the freedom of my mind
I’m livin life the only way that I know
I’m livin life just goin with the flow
I’m livin life, it’s a really good time
I’m livin life, through the freedom of my mind
I’m livin life til the day that it ends
I’m livin life just flowin with the wind
Track Name: Profession feat. Inseyet
"Your profession is not what brings home your paycheck
your profession is what you were put on earth to do
with passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling..." - Vincent van Gogh
...calling me

Do you hear the things you're tryin to say
to yourself subconsciously every single day
is it quit your job and to find your passion
only one life to live and it's fast man
and don't take my word for it, listen to yourself
and if you like your job more power to wealth
there's plenty on this earth for everybody
everybody
You can mold it how you like it
some will say well i can't fight it
made a couple bad decisions
now I'm paying prices
yeah things aren't instantaneous
but make a plan, stick to it and think with your big cranious
when you get old you won't regret much you did
but you'll be thinkin hard about every moment you didn't live
to your full potential and i know that it's hard
there's been so many moments i wanted to give up and disregard
this calling for music i was born with so i listen
i'll never stop writing cuz it's calling me to give in
and I might be insane like van Gogh but that'll never stop me though
and you can call me crazy, but i will never know

Your profession is not what brings home your paycheck
your profession is what you were put on earth to do
with passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling......calling me

I don't even need to describe, the reason I was put on this earth
it's not for me to decide, I cant control all these words
that i'm feelin insidebut I know that I found a few that will make a few people inspired
Inspiration is the game that I play
I hear it, callin me from the booth out to the stage
I wanna decicate this to the people makin paint
makin clothes, makin custom photos, I dont know man
I dont really understand
dedication in my hand - in my heart I keep my fam
I do this for the fans truly though
it wasn't fair of me to hold all of this in before
but the real truth, I really didn't know
I didn't know the music was gonna open and flow
I didn't know I could change a life with a simple rhyme
connect my soul to the mic - it's a profession of mine

Your profession is not what brings home your paycheck
your profession is what you were put on earth to do
with passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling......calling me
Track Name: Mind Over Matter
Mind Over Matter (Beat by Han Solo)
Engineers in Your Ear and Han Solo
Copyright 2011, Engineers in Your Ear

Mind over matter is the matter on my mind
I brainstorm all day like my name was Einstein

I'm traveling through space-time, unravel alien minds
to learn about telepathy and channel only good vibes
and Han Solo got the beat on this track
and you can watch me no slow mo put the heat on my back
a jet pack as I skywalk up to the stars
doin battle with my demons left me covered in scars
The Syth lord of America goes by Rupert Murdock
Sly Fox, TV Box, dark side tricky talk.
but not me, I'm 100% human being
lookin in the mirror, see myself doing great things
i got the power to be i got the power to see
i got the power to be a revolutionary
Speak gravity greater than a black hole
blast my soul back into space now that's my new goal
holographic universe I'm really just invisible
I put my fingers out- and they touch what is residual

Mind over matter is the matter on my mind
I brainstorm all day like my name was Einstein

I’m walkin through the city with a smile on my face
I don’t believe in negativity, it’s just not my taste
So get it away from me, I keep a positive mind
I found the secret to life, so if I want it, it’s mine
I manifest a little dream in my head and I
Wake up the dream with my pad and my pen and I
Step in the booth with one thing on my mind
I gotta find a way to clear up all the things im hidin behind
The outside representation of my true insides
I’m letting you inside to a piece of my life
Yah - and it’s only getting better.
Engineers come to wreck it, Han Solo spins the record.
And don’t forget we got Bodi on this track
Independently rollin across the nation and back
We pack it up in the side of the van
Headin to another city with the hope to make some new fans
Track Name: Good Friends feat. Eclipse
It's all about the risk for the payout
I keep Good Friends around who don't need clout
It's not about the salary it's all about reality
It's all for one and one for all or stay out

They want to see a different side of me
then say somethin, anything, to anyone that rides with me
i got the love in my heart and what that means to me
is everything that's opposite i kill it with a savagery
i hope that gives some imagry to why
i run with packs like a wolf and like some eagles we fly
we're eager like the fabled rabbit to win any race
but patient like a tortoise we all pick our own pace
I'm sure you've heard that fable from the good homie Aesop
see when you're talking bout friends there's no such thing as time or space
and it's all for one and one embrace if we win or loose
I'd rather have my friends than 1st place if I had to choose
If you're rollin down the highway bumpin good friends than look my way
if you're in the club show me some love & lets get sideways
But I don't mean mug cuz a smile tastes great
I'm in control of my life, my day, this moment and my fate.

It's all about the risk for the payout
I keep Good Friends around who don't need clout
It's not about the salary it's all about reality
It's all for one and one for all or stay out

I got a couple of good friends and my family
and I would never trust another living soul outside my family tree
the industry is shady and it's never really honest
so i'll spread a little truth, i'm just trying to pay my homage
and I promise, I will never back up off it
and i'll never sacrifice my word just to turn a profit
I might have to lost my job, end up with an empty wallet
but pursing a dream and I finally found my calling
I take a risk in the morning but i'll deal with it later
but it might come back to get me
and it might come back this evening
but least I got my good friends with me
so i'm not rollin solo
we got no time to waste - tryin to get around the whole globe
HA - we takin over this place
Team Shells, Engineers, and Eclipse all on one page
I have to say that i'm feelin good today
that i'm livin a reality not based on pay
Track Name: Writers On The Storm
Fire to Paper and Rain with Pens
The writers on the storm are back at it again
again back at it is the storm to the writer
the Pen to the Paper and the Rain is on Fire

Till my cloud doesn’t cry, and the sun has a scorn
Till the Day I die, from the day I was born
Documentin images like nothin bring em into form
That’s my name next to author- I’m a writer on the storm
Get my beat poet on with my Beethoven with some Jim Morrison
and some double entan, I write far out lyrics like my pen was given birth on the planet Krypton
Do ya, do ya, what do ya paint pictures with, do you write stories, do you play instruments, draw with a fury or do you take photographs, or when someone smiles at you do you smile back?
My imagination has a plan of attack, I got 26 weapons 32 bars of facts
Let’s see, 3 DSP's gives me 96 tracks, through the doors of perception and I’m never lookin’ back
This is how I convey through what I say how I see other ways takin forays
As I write a story a rarity apparently at war with these words terribly I got a passion for inherently
And can you write through a storm, do you dive in your art to escape the norm, and self inform
- And for a second can you love what you hate
and can you mash it together and make us see something great?
(breathe) Have you ever felt something was unheard
So you flipped the inspiration as you wrote another word
& It not about who’s better like a file in a folder
This is art seen through the eye of the beholder
(quick breathe) All the creativity we’re generating in so many formulations
We’re the underground persuasion we keep writing these equations
on occasions to these pages its cremation but the ashes live for many generations

Fire to Paper and Rain with Pens
The writers on the storm are back at it again
again back at it is the storm to the writer
the Pen to the Paper and the Rain is on Fire

I was sittin in my bedroom writin up a storm
writin up a storm, I was writing up a storm
now i'm sittin in the studio cookin up them beats
cookin up them beats, I was cookin up them beats
now I roll through the drum like this
so listen to the rhythm of the bass as it hits
and I never really thought I could flow like this
when the hi hats, drums, and snares together coexist
rollin with a little bit of sentimental rhythm
ima give you real the story with no lies in em
that's the truth when i'm up in the booth
I made a promise to you - keepin it fresh and new
now i'm runnin up the side of the wall
and the storms comin in, so the rain will fall
the thunder and the lightening light up the sky
on a night like this - it's time to ride!
so I roll downstairs to grab a pair of shoes
cause I ain't seen a storm like this since 92
and I don' really want to get stranded outside
so i'm wearin my night vision as I step into the night Ha -
ah yah, it's a beautiful evening
but everybody's hidin behind the walls and ceilings
that's right - there in their house
while the writers on the storm are out rollin around
listen to the sound as the storm hits the ground
the bass will pound and then the rhythm is found
this right here is a typical day
for your boy Kylo Rich and the homie Play---
back to the matter at hand
you gotta understand how we build this brand
we start with the truth, then we think about you
tell me what would you do if you were in our shoes?
Track Name: It Was Worth It feat. Mauricio Whitford
Lookin at my life and I wasn't perfect
but through it all I can say it was worth it
I gotta say it's worth it, I gotta say it's worth it
I gotta say it's worth it........

Can't fight the feeling, gotta get up on the MIC
gonna start the healing, tell you little bout my life
born a cold night in October, 1983
I'm talkin bout Houston, Texas - that's the 713
but my heart resides right here in Arizona
cause I learned to fly right here in Arizona
gonna tap deep back into my memory banks
and to all my close friends, ima give my thanks
if it wasn't for all of you comin through with the follow through
I probably wouldn't be ballin and now the shots I be callin
see, when I was younger, I shared a room with Sean, my little brother
yah i've felt the hunger but it only made me stronger
but it's memories like this that help me keep persistin
and i'll always be resistin all the negative intentions
and i'' never be forgettin all the times cause I have written
and in-scripted every though and every feeling right here right now

Lookin at my life and I wasn't perfect
but through it all I can say it was worth it
I gotta say it's worth it, I gotta say it's worth it
I gotta say it's worth it........

In 1993 I got a microphone
I plugged it in an old guitar amp in my parents home
I ran it through my Dad's computer with Sound Blaster Pro
and made tapes in the basement with that underground flow.
I went back and forth with EQ's and compression,
doing music theory with a scientific obsession
the world went from boom to recession.
I went from bedrooms to booths and pro sessions.
Meanwhile, I went a different direction,
went from passion for the music to purpose and connection.
It's a cut throat business I've learned so many lessons...
Instead of PR tricks we're making independent hits a multi-instrumentalist.
By no means am I perfect but what's driving me is purpose.
Making movements underground and causing earthquakes on the surface.
Yeah, and I can say that it was worth it.

Lookin at my life and I wasn't perfect
but through it all I can say it was worth it
I gotta say it's worth it
Track Name: Chillin All Night feat. Mauricio Whitford (Acoustic)
Chillin All Night (Acoustic)
Engineers in Your Ear featuring Mauricio Whitford
Copyright 2011, Engineers in Your Ear

Everyday that we be livin this life
we're tryin to do this up right
and we'll be workin all night
Someday we'll be living the life
we'll have no worries in sight
and we'll be chillin all night

Where do I start when I don’t know what to do?
You said you feel a lot of pain, well I’m feelin the pain too.
Sometimes I wonder if this struggles really worth it.
I’m so focused day to day, that it seems that I'm overworkin.
But I’m certain this decision is the best.
Dedication in the present, in the future we can rest.
Work a full time job today, full time college education.
Only part time I can play, ya’ll know my occupation.
So when I play you know I’m goin all out.
Headin into the city, grab a MIC and rock a crowd.
After putting in the work, you know that it is chillin time.
All my friends by my side and we be chillin….
And we’ll be chillin all night, all night….
The time we livin now will soon be a memory.
I will never be the one to let the rough times get the best of me.

Everyday that we be livin this life
we're tryin to do this up right
and we'll be workin all night
Although we've seen better days
throughout the struggles and pain
we're gonna have to make a change
and now I'm leavin yesterday behind
I see the future in time
it seems so clear in my mind
and we'll be chillin all night
all night

Somedays it just seems like another struggle
get my self outta bed just to work a double
& I know, that tomorrow I'll be back in trouble
Pickin up any side job on the constant hustle (constant hustle)
But I got a plan for myself
an obsessed man, can't really do nothin else
got a grip on my goals but gravity is tryin to weigh in
It's looking like I'm flying but my feat are really hangin
if you don't, if you dont reach high
in the end, in the end you're only gonna get by
and that's why with a little inspiration
we can up on this music with some hip hop innovation
and imagination
expand my mind until my brain explodes
and my head goes through the atmosphere and galaxies are roads
and in the end, they can say I never did what I was told
That's just how my story, how my story goes

Everyday that we be livin this life
we're tryin to do this up right
and we'll be workin all night
Although we've seen better days
throughout the struggles and pain
we're gonna have to make a change
and now I'm leavin yesterday behind
I see the future in time
it seems so clear in my mind
and we'll be chillin all night
all night
