Untitled Life feat. Jubilation & The Mercy Project (words by John Public)


Chorus:
This untitled life (it’s everything I know) –
Our untitled life (it comes and it goes) –
Untitled life –
I’ll do what I can –
So untitled life: Here I am!


[first verse]:
Midnight on the avenue scheming –
Change in my pocket ain’t the kind I’m seein –
Move past faces blurred in action –
Memories in time, purpose and passion –
Layin groundwork, this life and times –
All I need is ya ear, a mic and this rhyme –
ATM dish out survival goodness –
Lose sleep and or my future, I’d die if I couldn’t –
Find the inside of the mood and let it breathe –
Real world bearin down, dirty heart on my sleeve –
Boat shoes scuffed, city grime gets ill –
Thrift shop tags, polyeruethane tales –
Pinstripes, papers, billboard books –
Words lost in space but no one wanna look –
We seek to find, but within it’s livin –
Reach out experience, base up, re-gift, get it?


Chorus:
This untitled life (it’s everything I know) –
Our untitled life (it comes and it goes) –
Untitled life –
I’ll do what I can –
So untitled life: Here I am!


[second verse]:
Feelin vintage, but so brand new –
Walk backwards forward, swing like Duke –
They bake tomorrow’s bread, man I ain’t with it –
Yesterday’s crumbs and some Jack and Ginger –
Frustrated but still in love with this music –
Drop lines, jump hoops kid skip thru it –
Socks pulled hella high get my Cali on –
Florida in my heart, N-Y grown –
Parked on the couch with my girl we dreamin –
Prayin to God for the world we believe in –
Friends in long-order, close circle bound –
Recallin laughter movin slow uptown –
Bills pilin up, tho, cash getting low
Grandpa getting sick wit no job to show –
America heavy maybe down in our spirits –
But this experience, me to you, regifted – we singin for


Chorus:
This untitled life (it’s everything I know) –
Our untitled life (it comes and it goes) –
Untitled life –
I’ll do what I can –
So untitled life: Here I am!


Bridge:
For all the people like you and I –
Thinkin today is do or die –
Take a breath, hold it deep inside –
Let it out and shake ya soul –
All the faces we might see –
All the places we might be –
Oh I’m sure these times is ours to hold


Chorus:
This untitled life (it’s everything I know) –
Our untitled life (it comes and it goes) –
Untitled life –
I’ll do what I can –
So untitled life: Here I am!
