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

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)

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. Sponsored by Hitachi 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

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

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

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

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.
-26
