I'm Famous

image38

My mind is blown

I'm so far gone

Take me away

Sing me a song

I want to come down 

Get off this weed

Speak my mind

And let you see

Everything drugs

Did to me

The horrible greatness

I've come to be


Drugs control you 

But I couldn't see

I thought I was in control

Of my own destitny

Sub consciously

I wanted it to end

But I lost control

I could only pretend 

That all was fine

That I was okay

The drugs I love 

And I feel no shame


The harder it seems

Each and everyday

Even more for me to put away

And each time I trip

I see I feel

More love for drugs

This happiness is real


My mind is blown

I'm so far gone

My blood is cold

I've been dead all along

No more songs

No more fun

All I am

Is a dead son

but I was famous

I Think Too Much

image39

I guess I think too much

Because really this is just

Whatever

Because of what I've done

It's now over

And man

I wish I could just stop

To start over

Its always some how made

An impact on me

It gives an enlightened way of thinking

Gives me chemistry


I guess I think too much

Because really this is just

a waste of time

Because of what I've done

Thoughts are stuck on my mind

And man

I wish I could just stop to start over

I guess I somehow made

This life of mine for me

I've got some time

In thinking

Mistakes eternity


I guess I think too much

because really this is just

The End.

The Sower

image40

I told you good things

Tips to share and give

You take them for now

But lose them to your sins


I showed you good things

Like love and happiness

You take it for now

But when problems rise

You forfeit

Don't forfeit


Thanks to You

I am not afraid

I know 

My future brings me pain

But still I'm looking up to You

I know my Father is at home

He's waiting for me

He's waiting for you


I gave you good gifts

You took and you used them

But you wanted more

Unecessary things

You purchace your fix


I gave it all to you

You took what I gave 

and grew

Abundantly filled

You shared your love

You shined your light


-Ruben Martinez


The Way We Treat Each Other / The Earth

image41

Somedays I

Look back

On the times

We have had

And I dont know

How we let ourselves

Get so far down

This track


It hurts me to say

This truth

Shines down on me

And you

We are both guilty

Of being cruel

Your lies

And my talking down

To you

Again

We're breaking up

Again

But my love will never end

We are not back together again

Again


Take a look around

Tell me what you see

Do you like your surroundings

Or are you just stuck

Inside this penitentiary

With me

Inside my minds four walls

I see

I have to try harder everyday

To teach my kids

Everything

That they never

Taught me


It hurts me to say

This truth

Shines down on

Me and You

We were both guilty

of being cruel

All my trash

And your pollution too


-Ruben Martinez


Everything Must Go

image42

Ask yourself my friend

Ask yourself again

Is this what you really wanted?


Ask yourself my friend

Ask yourself again

Is this what you wanted

To be?


Everything must go

Everything must go now

Everything must go


Ask yourself my friend

Ask yourself again

Is this where you wanted to be?


In this modern day 

society

We are the people

We are free


-Ruben Martinez


These Things You Should See

image43

I am down to earth

I tell you what I think

The more times I feel

The more times I sink

I think all about

What it is I think

Sometimes I write things down

But I always need more ink


These pictures you should see

They are of my life

And life I bleed

These thoughts I beg you to read

They are of my heart

Soul and dreams


This is why

They love to make us die

We all have corruption in heart

We all live a lie

This life to me

I live unseen

So shine the light on yourself

To see your deepest dreams


-Ruben Martinez
