    How We Roll is the official final track to the album. DDwili Style, Milky, OK, and Vanilla Dome are all songs that I wrote and recorded during the process of Brother, but felt they didn't necessarily match the album's theme.

Video games have always been a big part of my life growing up. I think I enjoy video game music over all other forms/genres. I sample from the games I enjoy, as well as the televisions shows I watch. I hope you enjoy the combination of beautiful video game music and my sing-song rapping style!

Track Name: Beyond The Darkness
(Hook)
When you walk through the darkness
It's not as bad as you imagine when you get there, you will see that
when you walk through the darkness
You're not alone you will find those that will be there when you need a light
Raw raw for my brothers (x3)

(Verse 1)
Stop (breathe), take a deep breath
and reflect on the pressures that are forming in your head
Check the stress and see if it's worth it
Abandon any damage that you deem as worthless

Harder done than said, The heart is hard to barter with
Harping that it is smart enough to start again A
bargain is tragic, lethargic's my action
Embarked with no traction in darkness I'm trapped in

Dwelling in the dark won't change much
You can find light if you let your eyes readjust
I know it's hard to find the will to carry on
When everything that happening in life seems very wrong

But remember this
Nostalgia plagues the mind whenever people tend to reminisce
Good times are relished as bad times are faded
That's why we develop darkness so I'm saying

(Hook)

(Verse 2)
Look, (pause), you're not on your own
You can check the vicinity or glance in your phone
Stone walling ain't healing, sealing
everything inside makes the ride hard to deal with

Find a mode of happiness to channel your chakra
Fight the foes and sap the stress that handles your mantra
Grind and grow with laughs and bless the people you love so you can
Light and glow when sadness makes a stand to your construct

Trust me when I say it gets better
The chest pains will go away and when your head hurts just
Vent if you need to, spend cents if you need to
Transcend to the end of the stress and just breathe

I know we're not accustomed to a
Death of a friend or loss of a loved one
But you're not outta options
If you need a brother well we got some so

(Hook)

(Outro)
Shoutout
Jayb, you my brother
Ice Berg, you my brother
Blue Squad, you my brothers
Cullen, you my brother for real

Yo Ethan, you my brother
Yo Didgeridoo, you my brother
Yo Mika, you my brother
Yo Nebula, you my brother (uh)

B.K., you my brother
Cliche, you my brother
Yo Sloppy, you my brother
Mike Wing, you my brother, homie
Track Name: Time Slips
(Hook)x2
Life is way too short
I just wish I had more time
(Time flows and it goes with the ticking clock)
(Time flows and it goes with the ticking clock)

Life is way too short
I'll just focus on my grind
(You start out low but you slowly make it to the top)
(You start out low but you slowly make it to the top)

(Verse 1)
Spending my hours at work as the dawn approaches the dusk
I'm freaking bout my free time and I wonder if I have enough
I need a change, another way to keep me sane
I have been trained to refrain from breaking my chains

Never, have I ever been lost in a smog
consisting of the time that I spent on the clock
and I... just want this to be done with (done with)
So I can go out and do somethin (somethin)

Be unshackled by all this dumb shit (dumb shit)
To be free of it is my one wish
I'm hoping that my hopes weren't in vein
Leaving me stranded without an ambition to gain any fame

But as long as I'm trapped in the penny game (penny game)
living by paycheck it will stay the same
But I, don't want this time go to waste
Or else it will all slip away

(Bridge)
Or else it will all slip away
Or else it will all sliip awaay
bye bye, bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
bye bye, time

(Verse 2)
Believe me when I tell you that I'm seeking
out an opportunity to find a way
out of this situation I'm facing
I stand adjacent when really I should be placing

A foot in a door but will it allure, me to the road of the riches galore
or will it be all for nought
Offer thoughts I need some support calling
My brothers I'm needing a shoulder because time is running short

I've had this fire in my chest man (chest man)
Ever since I was just a freshman (freshman)
Freestyling in Keene to impress fans (Impress fans)
Be wild and free is my testament

Now once I acquire the key to my locks
This fire will be free and they'll see what I got
But I, don't want this time to go to waste
Or else it will all slip away

(Bridge)
Or else it will all slip away
Or else it will all sliip awaay
bye bye, bye bye, bye bye, bye bye
bye bye, time

(Hook)
Track Name: Let Me Take It To The Road
(chorus)
Let me take it to the road
let me take it to the road
I can't stand it here, I wanna get out
I just wanna find something new so
Let me take it to the road
let me take you to the road
the demand is near, I can sense it clear
I just wanna find something new so

(verse)
Imma pack my bags, Imma pack my things I wanna
travel all over the world
my car is my only friend
I need a lesson that I'll learn so it will earn me an end
burn me again, I tell you
scorn me my friend, you
Won't know what'll happen till it happens to you
But if I turn a blind side I won't be finding the truth
finding the truth, outside of the box I'm in
All the minutes I remain my life will stay the same
I need a needle, I got a compass in my veins
I'm running without no aim
My brains feeling plain but it steadily glows
with the traffic and I'm ready so

(verse2)
Fuck a flight I will roadtrip, on my longboard coastin
The only times I've moved were college and whenever folks did
Now I notice that I'm on my own shit
The heart is where the home is and that alone is my Focus

Yeah, I'm sure I'll make mistakes
Cheesing to be leaving well I hate this place
Driving to a point til a case gets made
Carving hills and coasting till a way is paved

I figure the bigger the goal the bigger I figure the outcome
I'll saddle to travel the road the homies are wondering how come
what could be driving you, what do you strive to do
Is there a reason for you leaving? Well I found one

(Heh) And it might sound dumb but
Are there people famous in Derry, well I count none
D-Town has showed me a drought so it's
Peace now my homies, I'm out
Track Name: Permabaked Interlude
My mind is here to stay
I'll make no attempt to stray away

Reality is not what it seems
I'll just keep on having these pleasant dreams
Track Name: Make Believe (Prod. by Jbad)
(Hook)
what if this is imaginination
What if this is all make believe
What if I'm just in a coma
what if this is all just a dream
Because I'm, not sure if living in the moment is
fine
Just unwind, into the fantasy that gives you good
vibes

(Verse)
every night my dreams are lucid
Sometimes they float away
other times when I'm wide awake
I feel like my vision degrades
living the same plain game while
my aim is missing
Running thru strange grainy plains like the
phase has shifted
They invade my system, the dreams I can't control
but when their haze is lifting, I see a twilit road
which makes me praise this gift that, grants me ethereal
thoughts that I brought as the sleep makes my Eyelids roll
but who knew that one day I'd become the man
who'd cruise on through this dream land
And the nightmares that are chasing me
Seem far more authentic than reality
so what is the reason I need to be sleeping
in order to bring out my mind?
I learn via a tesseract
causing a wrinkle in time
folding the fabric of space and life
All within my dreams
My consiousness erasing the lies
playing make believe
I'd like to pretend I'm someone else
created in a thought
But when my eyes open
my dream bubble pops
Real life feels so dull to my inner thoughts
It's without a doubt questions begin to drop like

(Hook)
Track Name: Shine (Idly Dream Yawn)
(Intro)
(Yawn) Woah
Oh wow, oh really wow
oh really woah

(Hook)
I got a Shine, Shine
An Idly Dream Yawn, Idly Dream Yawn (x2)

(Verse)
Yo my quest for the purp will leave my breath tubes hurt
Prepped with the best but prepared for the worst yall
I got a shine, and I'm doing fine
Trippy sensations go down my spine and it feels sublime
Woah, I'm yawning like crazy
Can't complete my sentences without...
ADHD kickin in while slippin in
and out so pardon me if I'm not listening

(Hook)

(Outro)
Wow
Such Shine
Many Idly Dream Yawns
So Trippy
Wow
Wow
Track Name: Revivification
(Intro)
Revive
Revive

(Verse 1)
We feel revived as we breathe in the morning light
ready to go despite all of the warning signs
We're doing fine, we don't need no shine
to figure all the secrets that we left behind

Out the alcove zipping into our coats
packing into the bandwagons that we all drove in
Suppose when opposing factors tend to just factor in
like part-time work and rent, but does that even matter then?
9
We've got to party and party and drink and drink
til we hit the brink and emerge from the haze
As the day breaks and we part our ways
The flames fade thus ends our party phase for now

The summer days are long the winter nights are longer
A couple flames ignite and cinders burn for hours
And hours and hours but when they gonna catch on me?
and burn me down

(Hook)
How do you party all day all night and you
still feel revived?
When all the demons have been flushed away do you
still feel revived?
How do you party all day all night and you
still feel revived?

(Bridge)
How you party all day all night and you(x3)
And you still feel revived?
How you party all day all night and you(x3)
And you still feel revived?

(Verse 2)
The next day rolls around as my head pounds
Tar's clogging my throat the ick of liquor's in my mouth
Work's in a half an hour, hop in the bath and shower
Wash away memories long gone that the past devoured

As I fasten my belt adjust my neck tie (neck tie)
I'm wondering when there'll be a next time (next time)
Yeah, to kick it with my boys
And I'm digging up some coins so I can buy another pack and I

Hope it lasts the night brother cuz imma gonna go hard
My jobs until 11 so I'll have a slow start
But that's not stopping me, I'm sure I'll find a way
To down every last one of these IPAs

Tonight, tonight I'll have a fine time
But if I drink this glass of water I'll be fine, right?
The party is the focus found in my line of sight
And I'm like, now it's time to feel Revived

(Hook)
Track Name: Someday The Beat Will end
(Hook)
When I think about all my friends
I wonder when does the friendship end
Here's the message I'm trying to send
That someday the beat will end

All the bonds with the people I met
All the thoughts that reside in my head
As I live on when those are dead I know
That someday the beat will end

(Verse 1)
Bum a couple cigarettes from my homies
Got no problem sharing cuz they know me
Precious normal moments feel so OG
But if they left me then I'd feel real lonely

And as I'm ripping drags I reflect on kicking back
To times where the act was living lax
But then the beat changed mise en scene now I ask
Did we follow the right track on our different paths?

I mean, some got a job from college
Some became a dad or mom with callings
But me? I feel like I'm stalling
stuck in the past where we're all freefalling

They say they'll call often but I'm not so sure
Our beat has passed on like it was a brochure
And on it reads that it's time for the Second Act
But the first one felt too quick, it takes me back

To old relationships long since gone
Girlfriends and gentlemen long since gone
The world has settled and brought a new dawn and
It's time that I change and it's time I grew strong

(Hook)
When I think about all my friends
I wonder when does the friendship end
Here's the message I'm trying to send
That someday the beat will end

All the bonds with the people I met
All the thoughts that reside in my head
As I live on when those are dead I know
That someday the beat will end

(Verse 2)
my Life doesn't lack a lesson
But the Second act doesn't act my method
No amount of practice prepped my message
That when a beat plays everything is destined

To end, like your favorite novel
Or a glass of wine when you've saved the bottle
For that special night, uh, one ripe with lust
But eventually that moment too bites the dust

And I'm a fighter cause I wanna try to save days
But no one seems to wanna try to share my wavelengths
So they move on and I'm stuck in the same pain
Bargaining my mind with a buck for a game change

But this is my story, fantasy and dreams
Nothing will change the way that I'm handling the beat
Even when my memories are lost and dimley fleeting
I'm hoping for a present with my chimney sweeping

Where moments like these breed no darkness
Where the beats at ease and I'm free to start with
anything, and spit some words that
help a brother rest and get with the Third act

(Hook)
When I think about all my friends
I wonder when does the friendship end
Here's the message I'm trying to send
That someday the beat will end

All the bonds with the people I met
All the thoughts that reside in my head
As I live on when those are dead I know
That someday the beat will end

(Verse 3)

Glory to the challenge that I've seemed to fought
Up until this point my balance was not on spot I have an
aurora borealis stream of thoughts and
Rewarding my story with some beats is a dream I got

(yeah) Music is the brother with the most soul
Telling me it's fine to open up, don't close so I'll
Lay the track down so the world can watch it spit sound
I can't back out like the girl I've talked shit about

But even the bad ones can have a stage
I've a knack to sample tracks to replace a face
A couple cracked eggs nesting in a dozen
but none of my troubles fade unless I do justice

Some will perpetrate my conflicts
Some will stay and make my life the bomb shit
Some will stray away but let's be honest that
A lotta cats will blast off like Team Rocket (heh)

But I got a hang of the structure
Music's the place where I can say that I fucked her
Music's the place where I can fade all the others and
Music is the place where I place my brothers

(Hook)
When I think about all my friends
I wonder when does the friendship end
Here's the message I'm trying to send
That someday the beat will end

All the bonds with the people I met
All the thoughts that reside in my head
As I live on when those are dead I know
That someday the beat will end
Track Name: Brother
(Verse 1)
I'm scoping a proper way so I can channel my Animus
The music is dope but my chakra can't handle the Cannibus
I give it a chance to click digging down deep where my phantoms live
I'm needing a Lantern to read all the patterns decrypting whatever the answer is

And you know? Sometimes my intuition listens with the chest and not the vision
Even when potentially the mission insists that it's best to be quitting
If I don't I will be scarred, burning ambitions and leaving them charred
Dwelling on things that cannot be changed as I look for reasons and hope up at the stars

Why me? Is karma worthless? When I feel harm do I deserve it?
Is it because I have no purpose? Is there a way life can be perfect?
Is it the luck of the draw, destiny given by father and ma
As I falter and fall I wonder whether should I even bother at all

The luster is drifting away, My palette needs color when living is gray
I'm desperate for a respite or chance cannot be the middle bit of my name
(My name) Dylan Chance Dwyer, the only thing defining me when life expires
Brother I desire more

(Hook)
There will come times where we follow roads
Find the right signs to our hollowed souls
And we'll find(And we'll find) That we'll fall (That we'll fall)
And in time (and in time) we'll find what we're meant to do (who we are)

The highroad never seems to end
But, brother tells me that it's fine to fail,
lesson learned but only time will tell

(Verse 2)
I find my self, needing premonition to define myself reading definitions
every time that tells me how to be how to seek a path to find a bell
That rings that chimes, so everythings coming together
to spread my wings, until I run out of feathers

to sing a song, to bring what's lost
to the table so I'm able to fabricate a fable's cost
but the price is high in my eyes I feel like I'm in a ditch
I try to climb and grind this line which doesn't like to give me zip

Sure I'd like to be rich, boy that'd be fortunate
But life is a bitch and I won't split from what I said on Origins
That's just an estimate of how I see dilemna
But I'll make the best of it making music in this rain with a steel umbrella

So it's time that I smell the coffee, step into the track when my soul is off beat
Be the top dawg that can sell the hot beats, I'm the only person that is able to stop me
So when I dread during these dire nights
I sit down and watch all the pyreflies (pyreflies)

(Hook)
There will come times where we follow roads
Find the right signs to our hollowed souls
And we'll find(And we'll find) That we'll fall (That we'll fall)
And in time (and in time) we'll find what we're meant to do (who we are)

The highroad never seems to end
But, brother tells me that it's fine to fail,
lesson learned but only time will tell
Track Name: How We Roll
(Verse 1)
Suns coming down but I'm wide awake
Nearly night time but it's fine to skate
In the moonlight vibing crusin slow but
That's just how we roll

Longboarding up and down carving hills
Gone with the wind don't give a damn, still
I'm not wanting this road to end cuz
That's just how we roll

Pair a headphones and I'm set to go
Puff a cigarette with a chest of smoke
Things are getting better with no plans in mind but
That's just how we roll

Fueled up on the high of life
Future's looking kinda bright
Stuck in the moment but I think it's aight
to roll roll along until I see the break of light

(Bridge)
All I really want is just to rollx3
Longboard ready time to go, uh
All I really want is just to rollx2
Maybe you don't understand but
That's just how we roll

(Verse 2)
Cracked are the roads I breeze through derry to
keep the ride smooth I need new bearings
but the money adds up too much so
That's just how we roll

Wheels and the trucks need tighten up
See a long hill as I size it up
I wonder if I hit it will it be my last but
That's just how we roll

Rolling along someday I might learn
Life can be tougher to pull than these tight turns
But I wanna just go with the flow cuz
That's just we roll

Coming to terms with the fact that I
pump to the metal but I lack the drive
to bring my pace down to a stop cuz


(Bridge)
All I really want is just to rollx3
Longboard ready time to go
All I really want is just to rollx2
And you know why, cuz
That's just how we roll

(Outro hook)
How we roll
That's how we roll
That's how we roll... That's just we roll
How we roll... that's just we roll
how we roll
That's how we roll
That's how we roll... That's just we roll
How we roll
Track Name: Milky
(Intro)
Just some silly DDwili bars for yall
And I mean it
There's a reason why there's no ladies in Blue Squad
They just too hot

(Hook)
I am looking for the one to take me (down)
One that knows exactly what will make me (go)
Milky skin, the breasts of a goddess
Milky skin, oh bae she's the hottest
Milky skin, the breasts of a goddess
Milky skin, oh she's all I wanted

(Verse 1)
Damn what's cooking good looking how you doin?
You looking fine and sweet I feel my dinner's ruined
When you walked in, I felt I oughta be standing up
I figured you could be the saga to my candy crush

But if that ain't enough, baby can I have this dance
We can cha cha real smooth and move on to us holding hands
I feel I'm lucky how I got caught in this happenstance
you got me lusting now I'm crushing like a soda can

Will you give me a chance, well with you I know I can
I see you in my life like I picture you in yoga pants
Skin so soft like the middle of a Milky Way
There's still today I can make you my bae cuz

(Hook)
I am looking for the one to take me (down)
One that knows exactly what will make me (go)
Milky skin, the breasts of a goddess
Milky skin, oh bae she's the hottest
Milky skin, the breasts of a goddess
Milky skin, oh she's all I wanted

(Verse 2)
I feel my options here are coming down to case closed
There's other ladies here ah but dat face doe
I swear I almost hear the wedding bells ring when they toll
She's got them cinnabuns so how the hell could I say no

She blows the horns off my head like a didgeridoo
You so adorable just come on and come wiggle it boo
Come shake a little bit of booty while the song is fresh
I'm honest when I say that you da bomb and I'm impressed

That dress drives me up the wall when it should be on the floor
We'll pick it up after when I do the morning chores
Resting together after a night of some touching toes
Blinds closed hoping that's how our story goes cuz

(Hook)
I am looking for the one to take me (down)
One that knows exactly what will make me (go)
Milky skin, the breasts of a goddess
Milky skin, oh bae she's the hottest
Milky skin, the breasts of a goddess
Milky skin, oh she's all I wanted

(Outro)
Ah, you looking fine girl
Ah, just give it some time girl
Track Name: OK feat. Joe Dionne
(Hook)
You probably all wonder why
I'm looking for my sun-shine
been looking for all my life
and I know that it's allright

(verse 1)
So girl spit it up, what's your name
I've been walking up the block and you're not the same
I mean god damn, you're so gorgeous
And I'm not sure that I can even afford this
because you're rich and I am poor but
you're the one that I adore
something tells me I want a little more
You make me melt like a cracker with smores
(Ha ha ha), but jokes aside
You should take a little peak into my life
Girl I know you're holding a prize
I'm looking for the one who can open my eyes

(verse 2)
Now here's the type of lady I'm walking with
Non immature girl no awkwardness
In fact I wouldn't have the opposite
I want a sexy little woman who's confident
Come here, don't be shy
Old wives tale, I won't bite
I have a feeling we'll have fun tonight
so come on, take my hand and we can give it try
Party no Party we'll pass the time
Chat a little bit wit a glass of wine Damn
Why is your face so cute
You giggle I laugh as I come to embrace you
I see your face is a breath away
I ask for a kiss and you said ok
taste of the lips I'll double dip
in the sunshine that you're givin me
Track Name: Vanilla Dome
(Chorus)
When your chick mistakes your dick for a cone
get vanilla dome, get vanilla dome
she says she wants a treat that's frozen but your meats the things she's chosen
get vanilla dome, get vanilla dome
when my cock's the talk she walks the rocky road
down to vanilla dome yeah I get vanilla dome


(Verse 1)
The sweet shit I keep it, locked up and hidden
save up on all your phlegm cause im sick of you spittin
pulling tricks I'm gettin chicks It's a thing I do daily
And all my lines keep flowin cause my rhymes don't fail me
(Gasp) pretty please with a cherry
on top let me carry this drop

Girl you like it soft serve or you like it hard?
We could make a masterpiece call it a work of art
Flip and tip a cone full of vanilla on the scene
And make a mess of cream which seems to be dripping all on my jeans
damn son, taking a picture with a sam sung
Or a video (yo)

Take me to the court, and watch me drain these
balls into your mouth with ice call it a brain freeze
I make it a sport
and this girls mouth is a fan that supports
gimme the jimmies she said with a twinkle in her eye
I gave some sprinkles to that girl

(Chorus)
When your chick mistakes your dick for a cone
get vanilla dome, get vanilla dome
she says she wants a treat that's frozen but your meats the things she's chosen
get vanilla dome, get vanilla dome
when my cock's the talk she walks the rocky road
down to vanilla dome yeah I get vanilla dome


(Verse 2)
It's all in her mouth shamalonging a dingdong
balls in her cups like I'm playing some ping pong
Down for the bone like a doggy delight
Getting a bit heated cuz this body this tight
Aw damn, love the foreplay
Sucking on my cone until I get sore, bae

Feeling groovy dude the mojo
Her mouth is moving to and fro yo
In slowmo, loco, this dick is so cold
Brrr but her lips feel so pro
Up in the clouds while she's slurping on my dream bar
Ice cream you scream and I scream hard

Making me go nuts as she Nestles my Drumstick
She wanna lick so she addresses me with some tongue clicks
(Click click) Morse code for the dome
(click click) One more for the road
Vanilla Dome is the fetish best wit the
women chest big like nesquik

(Chorus)
When your chick mistakes your dick for a cone
get vanilla dome, get vanilla dome
she says she wants a treat that's frozen but your meats the things she's chosen
get vanilla dome, get vanilla dome
when my cock's the talk she walks the rocky road
down to vanilla dome yeah I get vanilla dome
