about

With this project I wanted give a little bit of my testimony in a musical way. Some of the feelings were felt fully while others expressed through this project are exaggerated for the safety and privacy of those involved with this time period of my life.

I would like to thank Miss Brittany Michelle for her love and support, Dallen "that D.O.P.E Kid" for all the countless hours of work and mental power he has put into this project out of love for me, and the art, and lastly I would like to thank all of the people of Lacey, Washington who made these experiences possible.

Above all else, I want to thank God for keeping me though I didn't want to be kept during that time and my parents for putting up with my hard-headed self.

Please enjoy and share with whomever your heart leads.

~Elijah Wiggins

Track Name: Lacey
[Verse 1]
A masterpiece the masters peace
I craft with ease
A lasting piece of magic themes
This Lacey talk like laser beams got lasting scars
I'm ripping words and tearing seems
The things I've seen they gotta be
Only in this rainy state
I don't wanna stay and wait
Depression from the gray sky's brings in sin or suicide
So it's do or die
Well at least that's how I see it
Because the sin how you treat it but my folks don't need to know that My girl way down in Texas so really she can't hold me back
This city's mine you just witness the take over
These girly's with make overs hardly will stay sober and I love it
It's evergreen and ever scene
Because every scene girl that I've seen loves the black in me
And I'm smoking niggas they call me black and mild
Or swisher sweet talker with how I speak young boys meek with a sleek tongue let me speak
Breath let me think let me sink
Let me sing
We need communication in this world love
I'm sorry that I'm caught up in this world love
But this world love fit on me like a glove
I've learned well from my exes and the heat in Texas yeah it's all swell love
I wanna thank you for the care love
Take care love
Mommie got me feeling like bino
I got cool probably Because the Internet
l started playing their games taking baby steps
*beep* asking why I ain't get you faded yet
Smooth them theater kids can get that good good
I was trying mess around and give that good wood
Talk dates with the girls that you dream of and turn and ask your new girl to the bleachers I'm just saying
This is what Lacey may have done to me
My life was harder than it had to be
And actually I'm falling victim of these consequences
Look at how my faith is missing all the folks I'm dissing
I'm feeling Diddy how I take that
I'm trying to figure how long this grace last
I feel the day crash
Put my band in a coup
Really trying to ball without a hoop
Trying to give them more of me like Jodice
But nobody wins
It's all right let this music take control of me
Talking no friends
No friends
I'm talking no ends oh man
Cobain if I stay in
But I wanna be famous
If I stay here mercy and grace say I'm blameless
Is this what my faith is
Man I'm so faithless
Track Name: Yelm Highway
[Verse 1]
I feel a lot of the heat
All this rain on my head man
I'm better off dead
Man better off with my thoughts and some headphones
Playing Andy Mineo bumpin' "Formally Known"
That's so proper
Pass a Chevron and stop to get a doctor
Keep me in a 'Zona
Few people that I know really wanna
Chill with the kid and get him high now
I'm just trying to get by now
This school life is a mess
Barely have the care to pass a test
The longer that I'm here I'm only giving less
Boy that's real
I ain't really have a teacher that I feel
Could teach me much
I knew a few girls on the bus that could teach me lust if I listen
And I'm trying to hustle with these beats and such
Me and my parents ain't really speaking much
So the music is how I keep in touch with my feelings
I just really hope I reach the millions
What I need this little schooling for
A lot of its bore
A lot is nothing more than a popularity contest
It's all non sense
The way these kids act like its
Life and death but neglect where there mind is
Astrology ain't a science
But we reading stars
Scared to face where we are
Treat this walk like a bar

[Hook]
She said she never wants me to leave
I told her that I ought to just go
She told me all I need was tree
Then I could feel her soul (light it up)

I told her that I need some peace
She told me that it's easy to find
Just follow me down to the gray
And baby I can ease your mind (let me ease your mind)

[Verse 2]
I've grown up
I've grown up with all this passion
Because no one is understanding
Live life for just the moment
These t-line kids know the saying
My class is so close knit
I don't know if I'll be in
And what's worst is if I give
All of me then I lose myself
To all these kids who just play with all their goals
The weed is just the devil who offered them a whole
New perspective on life all they have to do is sell their soul
And they don't get it
They swear they're living
But what's worst is I tend to agree
I mean I started talking like them intentionally
And interestingly enough I'm fallin' for some traps they set up
I guess I'll go big or go bust
I know the bible says my feelings I shouldn't trust
Because they might lead me astray
Well they're gonna lead me today
Why I got all these feelings man just leave me to play
Because computer screens really might be the death of me
And Kendrick got me tempted by the recipe
Really want the weather sex and the weed
Really wanna forget the world around me
All of these gray skies get to me
I don't want the sympathy
I just want to feel alive again
I'm tired of this playing this long game of pretend

[Hook]
I said i never want to leave
She told me that I never should go just go
She told me all I need was tree
Then I could feel her soul (light it up)

I told her that I need some peace
She told me that it's easy to find
Just follow me down to the gray
And baby I can ease your mind
Track Name: We Rapped Sometimes...(Feat. D.O.P.E; Joseph Ibarra; Walker1ofGod'sKids)
[Verse 1: D.O.P.E]
Cash in my hand taking bill selfies
March Madness balling like Bill Self's team
All these people tripping they like Grayson Allen
Ryan heard my verse and he said "grace em Dallen!"
They don't want us to win
Got the Snapchat key to success and I went in
I don't need a DJ to play my song, I got the King Khaled
And I'm talking Jesus, he's eternal, that's the meaning
And I'm fiending for the limelight to quench my thirst
But it taste like cocaina and will put you in the dirt
So I stick with the Weird Kids, like I'm a reject
But he's a jerk, so I just reject
New Boyz on the block, yea we hot
I spit fire like I'm spewing molten rock
I shake the Earth but I swear it's not my fault
Can't wait for y'all to feel the aftershock

[Verse 2: Walker1ofGod'sKids]
My life was an eight mile cipher in my tribe
With my dog the pied phipher like Mekhi
I always had the king the mufasa of my pride
He who helped me through the journey and the scars in my life
He taught me on the other side the grass is always greener
And your girl won't be fly until after you leave her
Only hindsight and TV shows is 20/20
When you stand in God we trust then you know you're on the money
Devil took me to the summit show me all his kingdoms
Try to get me trade my crown in for his fiefdom
Fall/ from this high place why when I levitate
Heaven's sake run it like a candidate
Everything you got and you plan to take I want it uh uh I want it all
Every little thing you ever stole
When He made my bro you know He broke the mold
Until we hear and do everything we're told

[Verse 3: Joseph Ibarra]
Now who gonna stop me when I free flow
You couldn't touch me like I'm shooting free throws
These boys are living foul and I'm on top of it
The culture needs a couch and I am Popavich
I'm too legit to quit this MC is a hammer
Couldn't handle grammar or stick with my stamina boys an animal
Gnaw like jaws and emcees are shark bait
And your going to see I'm about my business like Shark Tank
Better have your hopes float because if your heart sinks
You could drown up in these verses that I work with
You got caught up in the circus of a word smith
Clown around and i'll bring death to the flesh with my worship
I'm Stephen King with the ink pen to this genre
Playing IT the killer clown better yet I am a monster
Better yet I'm ogre in the army of Jehovah
Making footstools out the enemy of the cobra
Spirit led let me show you where I'm at fam
I'm consumed by the ghost like I'm Pac-Man
That's Game Over

[Verse 4: Elijah Wiggins]
Study my verses
Leave you in hearses
Rehearse this behind red curtains wrote it in cursive
We working | young word smith killing these birds with a smile
I guess I outta just quit before this gifted lyricist forgets he's on a mission
Forgive him for he know not what he do
They say it's cool to play the fool |
So I studied Heath Ledger Studying for no failure
But I ain't down with a broke back crew
Fam you go do you
Just leave me out of your mouth
I'm from south so you know we steady wrangle dude
Feels like I invented a culture
Childish Gambino in a casino where talents are a currency
And currently I don't see any dudes compared to me
I don't see anyone take the care as me
I do right and kill everything
And when I say everything I mean it for your clarity
Verily they act like I ain't scary please
I can sense the jealousy
That's blessings on my blessings on my blessing
My girl got a business and she walking in her blessings
And I kept saying that I wasn't going to bless them
But these fish really need to learn a lesson
This is my common excellence
Know enough to be reverend but don't worry bout it
This ain't important for this record
Maybe later we can chop it up
Milk to meat no ambassador
Nobody wreck a beat as bad as us
Me myself and I are just some regulars
Arkham Asylum really trying to mess us up
Stop before you mess it up
What you mean ain't nobody trying check for us
Check us up

That's all I got

No Lyrics Available
Track Name: Red Curtians
[Verse 1: Elijah Wiggins]
If you're so in love with me then you should show it
I hear how you've been quoting all these poets
And I write songs to chill all this depression
I guess I'm too scared to learn my lessons
Skype dates don't really feel the same no more
I guess you don't feel the same no more
Feels like we don't talk everyday no more
That's why I'm just headed out the door

[Hook: Elijah Wiggins]
Red curtains in my room show off the passion
You've been the reason I write ballads
I hope that I don't fall all over you
I hope I don't cry out over you (x2)

[Verse 2: Elijah Wiggins]
If you're so in love with me then you should show it
Hard to believe that I could blow it
And truth be told it started out as fun
Why you lie and say that I'm the one
Skype dates don't really feel the same no more
I guess I became an older thought
I got close but didn't open doors
When I should've turned back to my God

[Hook: Elijah Wiggins]
Red curtains in my room show off the passion
You've been the reason I write ballads
I hope that I don't fall all over you
I hope I don't cry out over you (x2)

[Outro: Elijah Wiggins]
A wise man told me that some fish choose their nets
And to stress yourself out about a bass won't help your neck
Keep you head up because there's fish in the sea that see
The beauty that you can give them
Easier said then done
I'd rather run away
Than face the day that I say that I'm wrong
So until I have the guts to act out in songs
Because one day you're bound to listen to me
And truly I'll have a movie ending
We deserve that
Even if I don't believe it
I'm sorry if you've ever felt mistreated in the least bit
But that wasn't my intentions
And really there is no reason that I kept you out my mention
The Curtain fell too early
Or maybe at the right time
Because you didn't have the fight to keep the show going
And it didn't fall slowly
the curtains are soiled with the feelings of the actors
That once performed on the stage
Track Name: 6924 Inlay Street
[Verse 1]
I played love like a violin
The violence is when I take my pen
She fills it up trying to write no where to begin
We were just friends (tell me you love me)
She would tell me she wants me I would tell her she's lucky
I told that girl to trust me
Which was bad for her
Half of my past was hid behind my vernacular
It's lovely ain't it
Poetry made my language
Sound kinda Spanglish with some French added
Her lips were magic
Those hips had tragic
Stories added which made me active
Now baby has it Been forever since you've felt a kiss
I guess you trying to redefine the kid
Because my mind was defined by the stuff we did
In my bedroom I guess I'm tellin' on the kid
It's just easier to bid adieu if we just kickin'
None of my business
Just catch me sippin' some Lipton
That was back when I was trying marry London Tipton
And you was asking if I'd put the tip in

[Hook]
What's love
what's love gotta do with anything
Why you trying to wait for a diamond ring or designer things
What's love
what's love gotta do with anything
Because baby I'm right here baby I'm right here

[Verse 2]
Got me caught up in the drama
I'd never call her mamma but she called me daddy
Told myself to comma just to be happy
I end up replaying things that was said to me
But that's just spelling out disasters
Only way to block it is to shrug it off with laughter
All the things that we've captured make me shutter
I stutter to talk
To find the words to say the game was all done in the dark
I need it settled (you don't need to feel it right now)
But I'll kiss those lips until it's figured out
Say that we're in need of saving so I'm giving you that mouth to mouth
My whole being is saying I should change the route
Ms Scott said some words that got me in a zone
But then she called me back and said now she feels alone
It's kinda sad because now my heart is gone
Who knew our feelings would make a perfect song

[Hook]
What's love
what's love gotta do with anything
Why you trying to wait for a diamond ring or designer things
What's love
what's love gotta do with anything
Because baby I'm right here baby I'm right here

[Bridge]
Rock with me
Come on take your time with me
You don't need to make it deep
Come on lady rock with me

[Hook]
What's love
what's love gotta do with anything
Why you trying to wait for a diamond ring or designer things
What's love
what's love gotta do with anything
Because baby I'm right here baby I'm right here

[Verse 3]
And I fall down on my pillow don't want my love to be waste
Don't want my trust to be false that's what I cannot replace
That's not the way we should play
Maybe I play way to much
I know you're trying to be cool
But if you're really in love
You should accept me for me
I notice that that's hard for you
Mommy's little did some things I'll never tell on you
All the secrets that we had I swore I'd keep
Even after you showed that you stopped loving me
Or lusting me whatever
I'm cheddar it's better late than never
Whether or not the weather effected us
Really has me waking up
I'm not made of
Forget my ranting and raving
All the time that I'm saving
All these things that I'm learning
Can't make our future seem possible
If a future seemed plausible well you could've fooled me
I guess you choose the wrong tree but whatever
If I catch you at one my shows
Just know you're not the reason that the king got cold
Because the Kings been bold let me not go down road
With my lack of albums sold but when I get those downloads
I'm gonna flaunt it in your face
I'm the last man that you should've thought to replace ma
And that's real
If you think I'm in my feelings now
Just wait til I'm really back in town
Track Name: Dallen's House (Feat. D.O.P.E)
[Hook: Elijah Wiggins]
Momma Imma be at Dallen's House
Yo I'm trying to be a rapper now
Things been weighing heavy my conscious
I'm sorry momma they ain't leave the boy no options

[Post Hook: D.O.P.E]
Momma in the kitchen baking cookies everyday
We just chilling making music trying to get that bank
Momma in the kitchen baking cookies everyday
We ain't stopping till we popping trying to win the game

[Verse 1 D.O.P.E]
Met this black kid in my choir class no we just running the school
I'm wearing this sash on my shoulder you better not run in this school
Your girl saw me in the musical now she thinks I look cool
A mighty king like I am Jesus believe can run on this pool
Blasphemous come at me never take me as a pacifist
Because I'll pass a dis and I'll pass the test
And you're passing out when I pass a fist
Haters be tripping
Killing underclassmen like a dead fish
That I grilled up with a little lemon and a side of rice that's delicious
AriZona Tea in my hand always going ham
That is in the plan
Whipping in a civic treat it like a Lambo
Colder than Brett Favre veins at Lambo
Yeah I go Rambo like (bluh bluh bluh)
My girl hears your raps shes like (bleh bleh bleh)
Because don't wanna hear no (blah blah blah)
You're a sheep not a leader just (bye bye bye)
(Yeah I just ball) I am the leader
You've been defeated the world is my theater
I ball like Serena
Or like Derek Jeter somebody call Peta
I roar like a lion
Got like legs like a cheetah I cook them like frita
Ole la cocina hola mamcita (ah)

[Hook: Elijah Wiggins]
Momma Imma be at Dallen's House

[Verse 2: Elijah Wiggins]
White boy's making white noise
Making Altoid's wanna sue because
I Keep the breath fresh
They call me "Rye-Guy" Because I bake bread
They don't wanna see me when my CD drop I'm going to be the one on their list
You feel it
I'm Going to be the dude when the dudes in the school want to rock the building
Calling up Mr. Shaw
Tell him I'll ball for the talent show
Talking like I'll never drop the ball
It's almost like I'm reading minds though
These kids start feel like my groupies
They want to battle at bus stops
I had to tell them all just stop
I had to tell them all just stop
I'm the best in the Northwest Central
Keep The Spin turnt with the stuff I been through
It's funny how emotions give you thoughts so sinful
I'm trying to let it go but it's hard my kinfolk |
So let me pass all of the time with these verses
I don't have the time to rehearse this
I'm like wow when the beats start working
My diary is what will surface
Well C'est la vie
I don't need
Any of
Your pity
Got ten views man I'm feeling myself
Look momma I ain't trying for wealth
Look momma I will triumph in the jail
Look momma this is the way that I feel
Way that I feel
Out of the matrix I took the red pill

[Hook: Elijah Wiggins]

Track Name: Balustrade Boulevard
[Verse 1: Elijah Wiggins]
Honda Civic
Roll with my dudes in that family whip
Dallen said we gotta get it
Trying to get T-Line high without taken a hit
Maybe you'd like my life
My skeletons showing it's out of the closets
Patting my wallet it's empty I need change
AriZonas having been helping me think man
No license it's insane
My time here is ticking
I feel like I'm slipping
My girlfriend is wishing
She'd leave me for new man
So while I am snoozing
My mind is just cruising til ghost
I swear I'm doing the most
That's how it goes
You go play your roles
I'm out with my weirdos
Facing my fears close we talk like we heroes
We zeros

I know I can do way better
It's hard out here when the weather change
I know I can do way better
Yeah, Here I Go

[Chorus: D.O.P.E]
As I'm rolling down balustrade ( Oh No No No)

[Verse 2: Elijah Wiggins]
I asked Jack if I could slip by
She don't get high and I like that
Her ex girl does but I don't mind that friendship
So when I'm all alone I'll call them ladies up
Trying to fill the void that I got
Like it's not in God I trust
That's a minor crutch
A minor lust
A minor pain I'm getting paid for showing up
Waiting till the moments up
Feeling my momentum crush
Between the weight of the world
Whirling thoughts got me feeling some type of way
Walking home in the dark my parents sleep and I got school in the morning
Only time I prayed was when I was walking alone and
That's when I'm zoning I'm caught up in the moments
In my mind
Talk about the future and the time
I hope that I could live before I die
Talk to the man in the sky
Like how I'm supposed to live a decent life
When I'm scared to be alone
Fine I'll trust as best I can its lip service I know you see the cross of my hand
It's hard to be this Godly man
Even though my whole life was part of the program
But I slow dance with devil
Holds hands with his demons
Sinking to a new level
I wish my head to be leveled before a coffin and shovel as I am

[Chorus: D.O.P.E]
As I'm rolling down balustrade ( Oh No No No)
Track Name: Honey (Anna's House)
[Intro]
My sugar honey I think it's not good for you here
No I'm not good for you here
No I'm not good for you here

[Verse 1]
Baby you look so good tonight
You see all of those lights aren't they flashing so bright
Girl maybe you deserve so much more
Than what I got in store
You should run for the door

[Hook]
My sugar honey I think it's not good for you here
No I'm not good for you here
No I'm not good for you here
My sugar honey I think it's not good for you here
So just runaway please do not stay
Cause I'm going to use you up

[Bridge]
When I get lost, feel I've been crossed
She will be my salvation
When I feel low, I've nowhere to go
She'll be my inspiration

[Verse 2]
I'm so overwhelmed with all your patience
I'm just glad you let me cross your mind
I wish I would've let my God heal me
Instead going to waste all of your time

I'm not the best and I hurt you I know
I'd say I'm sorry but that's not what you want
maybe in the future it'd be alright
I just keep on praying that you will have life

And all of it will be better
Track Name: San Antonio (Feat. Edward Wiggins)
[Verse 1: Elijah Wiggins]
I need that peace love
Peace love I just need some time and space
I just need a little grace
I just need like all my thoughts tuck away
That's why I pray
My father please look down on your son tonight
I don't do it all right
I've been up like all night
I just need you despite
No I can't rewind the time but my eyes are getting hazy
This world is still amazing
For Pete's sake
My keepsakes are mistakes I replay
And these days
No different from the last ones
Moved back to the south to see my past ones
They all swear they found a man showing passion
Didn't realize it's synonymous with Latin
It's my fault because mistakes I make
I'm surprised my wrist have never met a razor blade
But I'll always show you love I guess that's my saving grace
While the curtains close I pour my heart out on the center stage
Then you say

[Chorus: Edward Wiggins]
Just come in close
You know that I never want to let you go
You just need to know that I love you, I love you, I love you (x2)

[Verse 2: Elijah Wiggins]
Dreaming like I never dreamed before
Plotting scheming how to know you more
I'll hold the door
I give you more
I give you more
The pastor saying that enough
Is never quite enough I'm just trying to call the bluff
But I'm failing
I'm pushing up against the ceiling
And it's breaking easily
Unconditionally is how you love me
How you love me I guess I'll never know
The kind love that always brings the faith and hope
I'm just trying to cope
With the fact I left the fold
The fact I didn't hold
My head under the water
Trying to figure how you still could be my father
Because sir I've done dirt
But you knew that I would
Arms still open like you said that you would
Go for the one
And I am one and you showed that your good
I guess now it's understood
That's why you sent a savior
That's why you've shown me favor
You sent your word in flesh and paper
Flesh and blood is how you change us
Conversion not just make up

[Chorus: Edward Wiggins]
Just come in close
You know that I never want to let you go
You just need to know that I love you, I love you, I love you (x2)
Track Name: 1928 Basse Road
[Verse 1: Elijah Wiggins]
I thought my testimony was less than holy
Thought that I was less blessed than my homies just confessing only
Before I left the city I was pretty church involved
But then I met a girl who really kept me off of God
So every turned made was harder than the next
But I knew a little bit but I should've kept myself in check
What I kinda think the problem was falling into lust and such
Problematic poetry was written out of love
Like out of love
Meaning that I really lost my whole connection
I'm thinking if I told a reverend we could've worked it out
It's funny because I was basing most my religion off of word of mouth
That's why it headed south
And that's why I'm headed south
Trying reconnect
So I don't need a check
I just want y'alls ears
Trying save y'all from some real tears
So let me make this clear

[Chorus: Elijah Wiggins]
Aye what it do
Come and take a walk inside my shoes
Come and see the things I've seen
Hear the the things that heard and why I ran back to word
To make it all alright

[Verse 2: Elijah Wiggins]
I thought my testimony was less than holy
I thought that I was less blessed than my homies just confessing only
When I left the city I got pretty prideful
Now that I'm looking back I wish I stayed mindful of
Subtly all these serpents in my tree
Should've never dealt with eve
Should've never felt her leaves
Should've thought enough to leave
I'm feeling like if I was as smart as I'd like to believe I would've
Saw this all coming
Instead now I'm steady running home
Or away I don't know which one honestly
All I know is that mistakes always follow me
Guilty pleasure make my brain spin
The same kid who taught kids how to live
Needs a savior so with this pen and paper
I'm writing out
What I need
Cutting down my trees
Until the fall and all non sense leaves

[Chorus: Elijah Wiggins]
Aye what it do |
come and take a walk inside my shoes |
come and see the things I've seen |
hear the the things that heard and why I ran back to word
to make it all alright |
Track Name: The Spin
[Intro:]
I've been up and down but I ain't never seen the spin | x4

[Verse 1: Elijah Wiggins]
Honda Civic whipping if I'm with my n-word Dallen (Yup)
Working these late nights somebody call up Jimmy Fallon
Making all these hits but really I ain't even counting
Ones about to blow I'm bout to hire an accountant
Midnight Tribe and WeirdKids that's the team don't you forget it
You can blame my God for the talent we've been given
Only signing deals if I don't lose my religion
Because I'm Christian
Boy you knew it
I'm not one to rock with gimmicks
I've been in The Spin downtown Oly be the resting spot
Girly blowing green like she don't have a second thought
Man that's so depressing because it's that or it's sui-watch
And bloody wrist ain't cute but I know some girls that can show it off
Eli be the name since the start don't forget that
I've been on the up and up and you really shouldn't miss that
If I was taking bets put it on me boy I'm winning
I'm trying to see the world with some endless pics of grinning

[Hook: Elijah Wiggins]
I've been up and down but I ain't never seen the spin | x8

[Verse 2: Elijah Wiggins]
T-line be the spot that had me growing in the worst way
Taught me how to lay a girl but never go on first dates
Probably why it's hard for me to even want to settle down
But I'm working past that young boy trying to settle now
Sippin' AriZona like I'm tribal in a zone right now
Reminiscing on the little leeches trying to hold me down
Only people outside the fam that I've been feeling |
Got some names I'm not revealing
But it's funny how things shifted
All my Gs in high school got me feel like I'm worst case
May have started last but I'm gonna end in first place
Trying to spread a mission why rap first place
And If I only reach one that's the worst and best case
Worst because I want more
Best because that's one more
Worst because there's much more
Best because I started
Catch me in a rocket
I'm just trying to blast off
Three hundred and sixty people present like a roll call

[Hook: Elijah Wiggins]
