Verse 1
Toast The Moment,
Sometimes It's Here And Gone Before We Notice,
I'm Trying To Learn To Open Up And Hold It Let It Soak In,
Living Here And Now Ain't Got No Other Motives,
Might As Well Enjoy The Ride You're Just A Little Fish Up In This Ocean,(Whoa)

That's Something Most Of Us Can't Grasp,
So We Toast To What We Had,
Or We Hope For Months To Pass,
So Afraid To Face The Day So We Stay Roped Up In A Trap,
Either Dreaming Bout The Future Or We're Trying To Fix A Broken Past,
Bet I'm Devoted To My Path,
Dedicated To My Craft,
Navigate It Til I Crash,
Never Hated What I Made It Blessed To Stay With What I Have,
More Comes I'll Take It But I Ain't Complaining Ain't No Holding Back,
Look,
It's Been A Minute Since I've Felt Right,
Living In A Prison Made Of Self Hate And Failed Sight,
Struggle Got Me In That Vice Grip Held Tight,
But I'm A Live Life Now, Enjoy That I Can Still Fight,
Good Intentions Made A Lot Of Wrong Decisions,
To Those I Left Behind I Hope They Know I'll Always Miss Them,
Moving Forward Now I'm Trying To Close The Distance
Went From A Lost Cause To New Beginnings Now I'm Trying To Find That happy Ending,

Verse 2
And I'm Still Trying To Reach For Bigger Things,
The Homie Told Me I Could Reach The Sky If I'd Just Spread My Wings,
Spend A Lot Of Time Defending Dreams,
Watched It Fall Apart So Now I Spend It Trying To Mend The Seams,

Catch Me Faded At Your Local Bar,
Sipping Something Straight And Looking Focused Like I'm So Resolved,
Or Feeling Hopeless Like I Don't Belong,
Just Let It Go, Living For The Moment Like There's No Tomorrow,
I Stay Lost Up In The Melody
Like Legz Has Got The Remedy,
I Take The Stress And Set It Free,
Feeling Like I Got The Illest People Next To Me,
And Problems'll Be Problems But I Heard It's Best To Let It Be,

It's Dedicated To The Shit I Had To Get Through,
Embracing My Mistakes And Let Them Hate It's Not An Issue,
I Learned To Keep The Mind Loaded Up Like A Pistol
I'm Flying Like A feather But I'm Landing Like A Missle,
Good Intentions Made A Lot Of Wrong Decisions,
To Those I Left Behind I Hope They Know I'll Always Miss Them,
Moving Forward Now I'm Trying To Close The Distance
Went From A Lost Cause To New Beginnings Now I'm Trying To Find That happy Ending,

Mostafa's Verses
VERSE1
I Stay Connected To My Heritage,
The Illest Egyptian With The Narrative,
But Still Gotta Show Respect To Where I Live,
And There It Is, Upper Left Northwest The Best Kept Secret,
Full Of Dreamers Believers Under Achievements,
And The Best Is Yet To Seep In,
I'm Reaching Of Course,
Been Building Laid The Cement,
Foundation Full Of Force,
Cuz It's Made Up Of The Realest Fuck The Weather Stay On Course,
Still Dreaming, I Gotta Give The Credit To The Source,
My City,
The Hippies, The College Kids And The Gritty,
Know I Rock It With The Promise That I'll Always Keep You With Me,
The Three Sixty Where The Heart Stays,
Where Art's Made,
They Got Me On That Live Long, Build Strong It's Our Way,
And When The Fall Fades And Winter Hits The Road,
We Don't Stop We've Gotta Grow,
Catch Us Plowing Through The Fucking Snow,
Just To Let You Know There's Nowhere Else I'd Rather Be,
This Is Where I'll Build My Family,
They're Calling This The City Of Subdued Excitement,
But We're The Livest Far As I'm Concerned With Both Eyes Widened,
And Like An Island Cuz Outsiders Don't Understand This Enviroment,
I Came From Somewhere Else But Made It Mine And Now It's Got Me Smiling,
Hook
My City's Made Of Dreams,
All Ain't What It Seems,
Beneath The Subtle Surface Lies The Illest Scene,
You Feeling Me, Then Hands Up Now Ain't The Time To Keep Silent,
Bellingham, Stay Shining,(Repeat)


Verse 3/Outro
I'm From The Home Of Rainy Days,
Where We Make That Green Grow In Many Ways,
A Penny Saved, A Twenty Blazed,
Summertime There's Plenty Shade,
And Everywhere You Go You're Bound To See A Friendly Face,
Everybody Out Here Down To Fill An Empty Space,
All The Memories Made Might Get A Little Fuzzy,
But One Thing Remains Clear, I Know My City Loves Me,
So Fuck The Bubbly Catch Me Sipping Boundary Bay,
Rep The Town, Getting Loud With The Sound And I'm Proud To Say,
My City's Made Of Dreams,
All Ain't What It Seems,
Beneath The Subtle Surface Lies The Illest Scene,
You Feeling Me, Hands Up Now Ain't The Time To Keep Silent,
Bellingham, Stay Shining,
My City's Made Of Dreams,
All Ain't What It Seems,
Beneath The Subtle Surface Lies The Illest Scene,
You Feeling Me, Then Hands Up Now Ain't The Time To Keep Silent,
Bellingham, Stay Shining,
Track Name: A Toast To The Moment
VERSE 1
Crack The Bottle Fuck Tomorrow This Is Right Now,
Let's Celebrate The Moment It's A Party up In My Town,
I'm Feeling Good Like They Could Never Get Me Down,
Plus I'm Surrounded By My People That Would Never Let Me Frown,
Now We're Chilling In The Club In Our B-Boy Stance,
Back Against The Wall Though Cuz We Can't Dance,
But Fuck It, I'm Feeling So Good I Just Might Front,
Kill The Ego Hit The Floor And I'ma Do The Humpty Hump,
Lift That Weight Off The Shoulders,
The Mask Off The Face,
Holding Tight To These Moments,
Feeling Like I Found My PLace,
I'm Great,
We Make, History On Legz Instrumentals,
Throwing Boulders Til They Notice While The Rest Throw Them Pebbles,
Feels Like I'll Never Get Control Of My Life,
But Tonight, I'm Just Living Man I'm Rolling The Dice,
If I Can Touch A Little Happy Then I'm Holding It Tight,
Feeling Like Everything'll Be Alright,
Hook
I'm Living Life And If I Can Man I'm A Live It Right,
Forget The Strife I'm Trying To See Some Smiles Out Tonight,
Right, Treat Everyday Like It's A Holiday,
Take In The Beauty, Let The Moments Take Your Breath Away,
I'm Living Life And If I Can Man I'm A Live It Right,
Forget The Strife I'm Trying To See Some Smiles Out Tonight,
Right, Treat Everyday Like It's A Holiday,
Let Your Inner Music Play,
And All My People Say,
Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey
We Toast The Moment Like,
Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey
And All My People Say,
Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey
We Toast The Moment Like,
Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey
VERSE 2
Crack The Bottle Man Forget About The Past,
Let's Celebrate The Moment While It Lasts,
Like It's All We Have,
I'm Feeling Like I've Got Forever In My Grasp,
So Forget About The Fact, That I've Been Stressing Over Cash,
Raise Your Glass, Here's To All My SIsters And My Brothers,
The Family That Would Feed Me If I Ever Caught Some Trouble,
I Love You All Now Lets Live Like This Is All We've Got,
Tonight It's Just Us Chilling Taking A Lot Shot's,
(One Shot Two Shots Three Shots)
The Homies Fought,
(Four Shots, Five Shots Six Shots)
The Homegirls Dropped,
They Passed Out Early The Fellas Still Chilling,
Bullshitting, Just Living,
Man I Love It And I'm Wishing,
That This Night Would Never End,
I'm Feeling Right With All My Friends,
Tomorrow It's Back To Struggling And Fighting Once Again,
Trying To Fly But Tied Down Like A Kite That's In The Wind,
But Tonight, It's All Grins,
Track Name: Vibrations (Interlude)
I Feel The Vibration Of The Bass And Let It Rattle Through The Veins Man,
Don't Really Feel Like Hip Hop Is An Art That We've Forsaken,
Catch Me Speaking Trying To Reach Them We've All Got A Part We're Playing,
If You Don't Know What You're Seeking Then Indeed Your Times Been Wasted,
It's Another Day In, Satans Paradise,
Thats Why We Stare At Skies,
And Dream Of Catching Flights,
But Stay So Faded We Can Barley Drive,
Man That Ain't Right, C'mon My People Persevere Survive,
Keep Reaching Towards The Light, Hope To See You On The Otherside,
It's Been A Fucking Ride, Been Through A Lot Of Ups And Downs,
Stayed Caught Up In The Vibe, Embraced The Movement, Learned To Trust The Sound,
Now I Feel Foolish Like A King That Wears A Busted Crown,
Another Lonely Child That Fell In Love With The Underground,
Just Trying To Keep My Head An Inch Above The Water,
With Every Passing Second Seems It Gets A Little Harder,
Another Day Another Dollar? Another Day A Dollar Lost,
Damn, I Thought It Only Cost To Be The Boss,
Track Name: Be Still
Verse 1
You've Been Caught Up In The Vice,
Tied Up In The Fight Of Your Life,
Guess It Was Something In The Dark That Made You Hide From The Light,
Or Was It Something In The Art That Had You Dying At Night,
Til That Strange Hits The Veins It just Don't Feel Right,
Paid The Price,
Now You're Trying To Pick Up Shattered Pieces,
And Regain What You Gave To That Addiction's Plastic Jesus,
It's Hard,
Cuz You Don't Even Know Who You Are,
Lost A Big Part Of Yourself Inside Of That War,
So Scarred,
Afraid To To Face The Stranger You've Become,
Instead Of Dealing With The Pain You'd Just Rather Keep It Numb,
Got A Lot To Say But The Words Don't Seem To Come,
And Now Every Single Day Is Like Another Loaded Gun,
Hold On,
I Know That You Been Dying To Change,
But See The Problem Is You're Dying Get Your Mind In The Game,
When You Start To Hit Them Road Blocks Just Find A New Lane,
These Devils Wanna See You Climb In Your Grave,


Verse 2
Keep Trying To Get A Grip,
Sometimes It's Impossible Not To Slip,
I've Watched You OverCome These Obstacles Then fall And Call It Quits,
I've Witnessed What Them Monsters Do They're Shredding you To Bits,
C'mon Get It Together Man You're Better Than this Shit,
The Clock Won't Tock Tick, No Going back Just Moving Forward,
Forget About The Past Now The Futures Looking Gorgeous,
I'm With You Fam Let's Ride It Out Until The Storm Ends,
We Were Born to Fly, Spread The Wings And Get To Soaring,
Not One To Judge, This Is Love, Got Some Vices Of My Own,
Shattered Pieces Of Another Broken Home,
But I Believe That I Can Catch Whatever's Thrown,
One Thing I've Learned When Life Throws Punches You'd Better Roll, (Roll With It)
And You Got Talent By The Boat load,
Together We Can Do This Fam, Just Get up Out That Choke Hold,
Keep The Head Up And Don't Ever Let That Hope Go,
I Hold It Tight Enough To Hit The Track And Let The Soul Flow,
Couldn't Do It Without Legz Instrumentals Homie,
I Know It's Hard But believe That It Gets Better Homie,
One Step Is All It Takes To Start Another Journey,
It's On You, Tell Me How You Wanna End Your Story,
(Repeat 1x)
