about

Onyx, the album, is named after the stone, black onyx.
Inspired by a necklace 26 was gifted for its metaphysical properties:
A powerful protection stone, Black Onyx absorbs and transforms negative energy, and helps to prevent the drain of personal energy. Black Onyx aids the development of emotional and physical strength and stamina, especially when support is needed during times of stress, confusion or grief.
These properties align with the meaning of this album deeply & I hope you get to experience them by listening.

With much emotion pouring out of my heart to myself, Kremblems, Medium Zach, artists that inspire me, and everyone who has been there for me in the last 2 years; I thank you so deeply for your existence & present you with a 26 minute album.

Track Name: Rotten Bones
Below my heart lives a skull holding space for rotten bones

Flush out stagnant - potion for magic

I dont wanna be alone yeah x2
I dont wanna be alone no more
Track Name: Do What You Do
Magnetized hopeful dope
Turn the lights off, I glow
Aesthetic paint, purple eyelids winged so I can fly
Turn it right on its side
It looks better now that I'm hypnotized
Do what you need, you know best
I'm better off tranquilized

Do what you do x6
to me now

Memorized how you hope
With the lights off, you unfold
Static, glazed over eyes
Eclipse past darker tides
Burning bright, riverside
You're fading out my open mind
Dude, I don't need you
I'm left better with tranquil eyes

Do what you do x6
to me now

Ooooh pink cellophane
The space between still the same
Got narratives under eyelids sabotaging how I pray (prey)
x2

I like what ya doin to me doin to me doin to me

hey

Do what you do x6
to me now

oh whoa whoa

(EPIC TRUMPET RIFFS BY CHAVO)
Track Name: Call Me Daddy
Teleport me with those eyes, baby
I'm a sucker for surprise, maybe down I'll lie for you
Gentle force of locking eyes, baby
Watch the score and write the time
save me some breath and taste my meaning

move your hips slow
keep your voice low
my roommates are home
you make it hard not to moan

I love it when you call me daddy

ahh ooohh ahhh ohhh yeah yeahhh

Wet and swollen - wade my tide yay yee!
If I'm atlantis, you're poseidon.

Gentle force of locking eyes, baby
watch the score and write the time
save me some breath and taste my meaning

Whats the meaning or is it lost?
I've been skimming on your surface
*"I promised myself that I would never stop being a silly romantic and I have not"

I love it when you call me daddy
Track Name: Satin Blu
Satin blu encased the shade of the view above my face
Sat in you, I take the shape of the fluid in my veins
Slept in to half past 8 wipe my drool on pillowcase
Dragon fruit of sour taste drip the juice on vines untamed

I got I got I got nothing from you
I got I got I got nothing to do
I got I got I got nothing to lose
I got I got I got nothing to prove

Satin blu encased the shade of the view above my face
Dragged my thru cyberspace so I slew the pseudo-brave
see, I love you but I'm afraid you wont move past all that pain
All the doom that I can take is soaked in truth encrypted plain

I got I got I got nothing from you
I got I got I got nothing to do
I got I got I got nothing to lose
I got I got I got nothing to prove
Track Name: Trans
Oh lord, oh lord
I thought you'd never find me here this time of year
Washed up on shore
My conscience has been commandeered about fallen tears

Pour another cup, coffee kinda day
Ooh keep it black, I like the stronger taste
Track Name: IM OK
Didn't I part empires?
Brought rain to the drought
All my water to pour spillt on my double edged sword
Seas that swirl entire reefs cant pull me down
Play them soul chords
yeah, these spells mend torn

(chorus)
Love I normally give away imma show to myself today
I know
IM OK
x2
Cubic Zirconia
Cool Ammonia (Eudaimonia)

Didn't I start the fire?
Sparks fling to the ground
All my water to pour
Smoke steam cools my core uh
Breeze that swirl entire leaves the long way down
Pluck my soul cords
yeah, you make me warm
oh

(chorus)

OH HEY HEY HEYHEYHEY WOO YEAH HEY HEY HEY UH

All you said about the future didn't past forever is just one moment
all you said about the future didn't past forever is just one moment
all you said about forever didn't last forever is just one moment
all you said about the future didn't past forever is just one moment

4ever
its just one
its just love
its just forever
