Michael Cabuco added lyrics to my song, "We'll Make It Together".
Instrumental: http://www.newgrounds.com /audio/listen/66062

Haven't been making music lately. Life is pretty busy nowadays but hopefully I can still submit one track a year for a certain somebody. ;) Enjoy.

verse 1
do you know how it feels to be crushed everyday
feeling like you can never rise from all this dismay
to be cut up chewed out spit on and kicked out
of every gig you always thought you were cut out for
never knew you had to go through the blood sweat and tears
and conquer your fears pressure by peers they always were near
shouting in your ears that you could never rise up
the competition was a bit too tough
and a novice like me well couldn't handle enough
they said I'd slip and fall choke on my rhymes
and my lyrics were straight up nonsense and I was out of my mind
but mark my words I channeled them out of my mind
cleared the negativity erased it all from my mind
took a deep breath started to write the first line
which said, "Be your best cause it's your time to shine."

don't ever let them get you down
keep your chin up kid cause our time is now (our time is now)
to make them see how bright you are
I can see from afar you are a rising star

verse 2
and the beat goes on amidst the critics as they trash my songs
ridicule my lyrics telling me I'm wrong
something about me being off-beat being off-track
being real something they'll never be
So now I'm locked and loaded with a paper and pen
Ready to write to the world where should I begin?
About all my struggles to make it to this very end
Where I rose to the challenge striving for the top 10
to make it to the top to make this track rock
blasting through your speakers let those kick drums knock
down the doors knock down walls that has suppressed the inner feelings
held in us all
and I want to thank the ones who stood with me
held me up high when I was so close to falling
this is my dedication to you my friend
a tribute to those who stuck with me till the end

Yes, "Drop the beat AznPB"

OH boy, it's been a while since i last last visited. Gonna keep it simple, good stuff! Some deep lyrics u got there, this'll help you rise up from any hell. The instrumental has its own emotions, i can feel it. Quite diff from ur usual techno, but still, i could use something like this in my mp3 =). i've indeed enjoyed this track.


don't stop making music bro!
i can see from afar you are a rising star, I'll stick wit u till the end ;)


AznPB responds:

Whoa. That's awesome, man. Thanks for the words of inspirtation! :D But drawing is coming back into my life. But I do miss making some music. I'll come back to it some day. I always do. And maybe you will, too! ;)
