lyrics

Say No More: 


(An agnostic gospel song dedicated to my dear friends Bobby & Pepe who are facing a difficult federal marijuana case right now. To all friends who have been imprisoned for risk-taking & to those we’ve lost along these alternate paths. This song was created from a cell phone voice memo of a guitar riff I wrote that Graham then “sampled” and fleshed out a song around.)


Found out today, another homie hit the hay.
Another one bought the farm.
But I'm still on my D game.
Haven't yet failed.
Came close, tasted deep betrayal.
But I'm still on this god damn trail even if I got Feds on my tail.

Oh lord 
Teach me differences between right and wrong 
Oh lord 
Show me that you exist at all 

Oh lord 
Teach me differences between right and wrong 
Oh lord
Teach me how to exist at all

Say no more
Devil he came and he went 
With stench of an opiate death 
on his breath
Some days only 
Want to run away 
But the chains won't let 

Not a god damn thing changed yet 

And I'm left with a mess on my hands 
I'm a wreck of a man 
Yolk everywhere 
nest egg cracked 
All over the body bag 

Half wanna take it back
Half only want more and more
and

Hope and a prayer 
Won't hold you tight 
When you're cold and aware that 
You're losing a fight for your life 
To the night 


darkness is a trick
And it bites like 

Pain, Money, Stress 
Hate, Wickedness 
Claimed many friends 
Ain't gonna pretend 
That AA
Or any religion saves
in the end 
when an 
AK's 
Aimed 
At your head.

Oh lord 
Teach me differences between right and wrong 
Oh lord 
Teach me how you exist at all 

Oh lord 
Teach me differences between right and wrong 
Oh lord 
Remind me how to believe at all.

about

Ceschi New Haven, Connecticut

Ceschi (pronounced chess-key) Ramos makes his own version of progressive hip hop spliced with elements of folk & indie rock. Although he has almost "mathy" technical rap abilities he's first and foremost a singer-songwriter at heart. Although one Ceschi song may consist of punk influenced machine gun fast raps, the next may be a quiet folk ballad played on acoustic guitar. ... more
