Track Name: 11:11PM Night Spells
So, so I felt it when it came upon me, I knew the moment that it held
I felt the wizard when he cast upon it, I knew the moments that it grew
Li-li-li-light it up, wa-wa-wa-water me too
I knew what it felt like, I knew how it could be true
Had to pull it over his eyes, so that he couldn’t see inside
Lu-la-la-lay-lay-lay, Lu-la-la-lay-lay-lay, Lu-la-la-lay-lay-lay, Lu-la-la-lay-lay-lay eh, eh

Came through on you, to comfort you, all around you
Take it alive, take it in stride, all around you
I walk alone, I know no one
Who doesn’t see, who doesn’t feel me, who doesn’t know this
Who can’t keep from this

Take it, take up it’s coming on you
Take it, take it, it can’t be you

Na-na-ni-nigh-ni-ni-nigh-nigh-ni-ni-nigh-nigh-nigh-nigh na-na-na-na-na-na-ni-nigh-nigh-na-na-nigh-nigh

Track Name: 11:47 PM Reminisce ft. Sophia Eris
(Ha)

I be reminiscing about you, no one drive you crazy like I do
I be reminiscing about you (Yeah, uh, uh-uh, uh-uh, Yeah, what up Keezy)
you been running circles (Keezy in the building Mike the Martyr, uh)

You like this top on me, I’ve been on top of you
You know the things we do, be out of middle school
and ever since you moved
I be like what to do?
I’m like in and out and in and out I’m on the run

[I-----] I be reminiscing about you [I be reminiscing about you]
Hope you ain’t running circles

I recall your name, I speak your frame
Come to me, come to me, came back to me {come...}
I be reminiscing about you
Going in circles thinking about you
Saying the things that I know about you
Baby, looking at the way you move
[I’ve been reminiscing ‘bout you]
And I remember the ways you always held my gaze
[the ways you always held my gaze]
Tease me [please me]

(uh-huh, uh-huh, yeah, yeah, ha)
And I know you ain’t forget me, walking ‘round town Iooking proud in Giuseppe's
Knowing I’m the one that put you on, shit prolly why we didn’t last that long
Cause I be frontin’ sometimes, acting like I be too fine to really need you at night,
but secretly I’d wish you’d hold me, tell me “baby be mine” [like the way you spend the night]
I like the way you spend the night, what what wha-wha-what?
But see I’ll never be the perfect one
I be what I be and on the run [like the way you spend the time…]
Do you and I do me, we having fun [I’ll never be]
No need for the needy [come back, come back]
Buuut I can never reach you when I’m lonely
Now I could never need you even if I wanted
I’m on the come up with the sun up, sippin’ ‘rita’s bitch [aaaayy ayy]
Don’t even know why I was trippin’ on some libra shit [aaaayy ayy]
We graduated to cool, but they be still something ‘bout you

I be reminiscing about you, going round in circles
[oooooooo, yeeeee, yeeeee, yeeeee]
Track Name: 12:12 PM Hold Up
Hold up, hold up, hold, up, hold up
I’m tryna tell you something, in so many ways
You keep talking, you can’t listen to what I say
Why you gotta- hold up, hold up, hold up, hold up
You don’t listen very well, do you?
Talking through, talking through my space

You like, you like you and the words that are you
Framed in your reality when you see no clarity
When you see no

Pull up, pull up, pull up, pull up, pull up, pull up
You don’t listen very well, do you?
Track Name: 12:59 AM No Words ft. Franz Diego
There was nothing you could tell me that would work
So you left with nothing, so you left no words on the table
What a way to go, what a way to go
With no words
What a way to go, what a way to go
With no words
What a way to go, with no words, no words
No words

You don’t gotta say nothing for me to know
You don’t have to say nothing [say nothing] for me to know
And even if you take nothing
I see your soul, [I see it, I see it, I see it] with no words
With no words

[I see it, I see it, I see it]

Why we listening to Mase you kiss me on my face
Why they screw they face, when we turn up in the place
My weight is on your hips I thank you for supporting me
Your my priority most importantly
We held hands in alleys and BLM rallies
Me and Mike off Oliver and Golden Valley
On our own accord it go accordingly
You put a spell on me like it was some sorcery
I’m just tryna love like Courtney,
Off University like Porky’s
Coming through your screens like a porch breeze
We dripping off top like some 40’s
Ay bro, we do it for the shorties
Style priceless so you can’t afford these
Take you to school montessori
Tryna find a wave, like Dori

So you left with nothing, so you left no words on the table
What a way to go, what a way to go
With no words
What a way to go, what a way to go
With no words
Even if you take, even if you take nothing, I see you
No words, no words, no words, no words [I see you]
I see you, I see you, yeaaah I see you

I see you

I draw once, I draw twice, I draw seven times
Folding on cosmic lines
Taking it all into, I’ll take it all into a place of wonder
so that you can see where we began it [‘gan it]
This could be your lifetime
Everything that you’ve been waiting for
Now you’ll see in your lifetime


Today I fought a lion
he was the big he was strong
Thought he was supplying
the fear in me
I just drowned him in the hennessy, oohwee
On the coast with orion, staying true with the crew
Real with the zion, always on the come-up
I got the mountain in me, I’ma come-up


Could be in your lifetime, right where we began it
Ooooooo, your lifetime
