Constantly Searching For... This album is based on a dream SS had about wolves chasing him in the Bronx. He analysed his dream, and through introspection and self-reflection he created. This is one of the things a true artist does, and Seven Star has created his magnum opus! Favorite track: La Nada Feat. Omniscient.

about

I started working on an album while I was on tour promoting my second album " Alternate Invention ". I named it " Wolves In The Bronx " inspired by a nightmare I had years ago where I was being chased by thousands of wolves down The Grand Concourse in The Bronx. I later looked up what that type of dream signified and it said that if the wolves fur was black or dark grey it meant problems, fears etc. I was running away from these wolves and analyzed it as I was running from my fears and problems. I wanted to confront them and did so in this album.

Track Name: Wolves In The Bronx
Verse 1:

Running scared. Unprepared for the worst. It's like one moment I'm blessed and the next moment I'm cursed. I can't seem to shake these demons of my back. I'm the bait. I'm the victim for these wolves I attract. I suffer alone cuz in my mind I'm the only one who can change. Ever since I found out that no one I blame can rearrange my circumstances I haven't been the same. I ran for so long when I was strong, but I can't any longer. Son I'm gone! I'm in the state of mind of dawn. Up and at it. Ready to take another stab at it, calm. I'm being hunted and they wont stop until my death and I wont lay down, I wont stay down. Inside my breath travels a courage that slept until now, wept until now. Check the new style. The stench of a million wolves in The Bronx I left in piles. I turned around and faced every single one of them for miles and all they could do is die from a smile.

Hook:

How to kill a wolf in the nick of time.
Face it straight on (2x)
Change your way of being. Reach a new prime.
Face it straight on (2x)
Step outside of yourself. Break it down in to lines.
Face it straight on (2x)
Make it happen. New reaction.
Face it straight on...

( Wolves In The Bronx After me, after me )

Verse 2:


I set them free. I let them loose. JTC gave them the juice. Weeds have sprouted from my roots. I should of seen them coming maybe now I wouldn't be running away. I should've been more cunning, but years of dumming created numbing today. I set the trap and I was surrounded like that. What a way to go out. No pats on the back. An outcome so wack, but self imposed as a matter of fact. My troubles, my inequities and insecurities festering like the wounds they are, but a new man arose with no name. I called him Star. He saw the truth. His eyes were open and so were mine. His view, his heart, his words, his rhymes. This new found strength adopted and refined tiime and time again. I turn around with fire in my eyes to face my friends, knowing I've created these killing trends, unwilling to be one of the many ravaged men never to comprehend his sins.

Verse 3:

Maybe the tables have turned. Maybe it's me who's after them. Maybe I've scared them off and they'll never come back again. Maybe just maybe I can keep working at it. My hunt has just begun. We are but works in progress. Words from Hezicus shine bright as the sun. I got the determination of Robin in What Dreams May Come. A million wolves couldn't hold me back son! I've already won. One by one they came to get finished, killed, to get done and it's done. My mentality like it's already there. All I have to do is care and like Masons everything will be squared away (away). My nightmares and misconceptions, they were never here to stay. To stay is to die as my creation of me. Wits and self determination is my only weaponry. I'm a make it happen. I'm a make it rapping or whatever my heart quests. With passion, yours truly, trying to be the best.

Track Name: Introspection
Verse 1:

I dream of control. I want a better me. A me who's more than an mc. Am I contributing enough? I mean I mean well when I huff and puff, but am I a man who acts or am I a man with useless facts. Are these facts being used? Am I paying enough dues. Am I trying to win or trying to lose. There's a sadness I hold like when I love are they sold. I'm getting old and more bold. I'm going on the road and it still feels cold. Maybe all I do is lie. Lie to myself, lie to my friends and my girl. Talking like an oyster with two pearls. These thoughts twirl, but in this song they'll unfurl. I need to get it off my chest because my heart can't bear another pound. No time to rest. I want to hold on to the visions of the west. I need to get on the ball, represent for my fam, do and not try to be my best. Manuvers I'm still on the same quest. Don't think for a sec this aint a test. Don't think for a sec I don't have respect. Let the world be infected when Miles starts to inject. Let the world bare witness to Gods intellect.


Hook:

Looking in like God would. Doing what I should to repair what I could.
I'm looking in cuz looking out leaves me with doubts (2x)

Verse 2:

Nightmares of stagnation, anxiety and cold sweats. Somebody says don't fret. I try, I cry, I fly off in the mind. Trying to get away with a lie like she don't know the time. Please forgive me someone for the bull I put you through. I promise if you promise to go back to school it'll be cool. Maybe I've wasted too much time trying to chill, trying to unwind. Maybe I should've started earlier. It's like all that's changed is the length of my hair. Maybe it got a little curlier. At times the voices of those who know me the best say I've gotten more mature. Maybe they're right, but I still feel unsure. I think original sin can't be cured and I will never be pure. I feel alone almost all the time. It's not that there's not love. It's just something I can't define, something preventing shine. I'm only trying to figure it out like the rest of you cats. No pride just patience waiting for the sun to be blocked out by my vampire bats. No pride just patience waiting for the sun to be blocked out by my vampire bats.

Track Name: Self Help
Verse 1:

An only child alone with out a father. Alone. A mother working late hours. He goes to Catholic school. Hyperactive class clown. Some think that he's cool some think he's a fool. They said he's got problems with focus. They give him medication cuz they're hopeless and lazy. Maybe it drove him a little crazy, but no one seemed to notice his suicidal thoughts written in his opus. What a sad child. Mom and dad cared more about their own personal beef, guile and ignorant life styles than what was better for the child. Me? I thought it was ok. Now I see those were the old day and now I'm free. No one can change me but me indeed. They misled, but now I lead. Now it's my tuen. My knowledge will plant the seed. Make them grow and give them what they need. A child of my own I plead!


Hook:

Looking for peace inside my heart.
Trying to forgive. Well that's a start.
I know me now. Once I was lost,
but now I'm found. Love is the cost
and it helps the self. (2x)


Verse 2:

A young man grows in defiance. A young man shows no alliance. Disturbed visions cross his mind on occasion. An anger embedded inside him cause him to start blazing. He needs an escape from what he thinks he can't take. He seems so irate so his melancholy inflates. Amazing how he could still hold a conversation. He starts looking outside. He starts looking at the nation and he begins pacing. A paranoia, all that time wasted. His fears increase as each year deceased called his name no peace. He tried New York, he tried Arizona. He dropped out so no diploma. Mom was never proud. At least that's the way he felt. Mom was in a coma. Mom wanted to be young with out a child, a loner. He learned loneliness from her, but what? She wasn't, isn't human? Maybe you were fuming before but it was all consuming. I wrote Alice when those thoughts floated like black birds. Now she and I speak like old friends with lovely words. I'm changing as a man, as a person. I got hope now. All she can say is my son I love you. You've changed so much. Wow.


Hook:

Verse 3:

Now an adult I speak clear. I look directly in their eyes with no fear. Once a shy and lost kid. Now an MC with a dream. Look what I did! I'm on tour in Europe and going to film my first vid. I never want to go back to that death. That ignorance, that childlessness. I'd rather breathe my last breath. I can't hate like that. Breaking mirrors with my fists. I bled for nothing. Just cuz I'm pissed isn't enough to risk these hands that can. The hands have a plan. Well actually the plan is for this man, me. S-E--V-E-N S-T-A-R now free by far. The Lamarckian Star. Yo dad you are loved. Yo mom I place no one above. I'm sending out a sign. I'm sending out a dove. For my arc is arched and resting. Saved by God it'self. For years this rhyme was nesting. Now the world is visible this year, this moment while I'm questing is the best thing. Today is my day. I say it loud. I'm confessing the rest of my life should be interesting.

Verse 1:

My genetic material is changing. Transforming right before your eyes. It's amazing. They said it wasn't possible, but my faith's the size of an avocado pit or largest breed of seed. I can feel it with every line I jot. I'm flesh and blood. Not like the rest of these robots. My atoms are the atoms of the cosmos. We share so therefore we bare and share core. I mean on Earth as in Heaven. I'm Earth. Call me Seven. If I see Germany I'll appear in Dresden. If I see Amparo then she will give me blessings. This is evolution of the body and spirit of the mind. All thought. The gift of human kind! Welcome to a power that can either shower with change or devour and derange. It makes kings. It makes cowards the same. Currently working on changing my physical structure to grow wings on my frame. Wings on my frame. I said wings on my frame!


Hook:

D for domination. N for neutral. A for atomic control.
D for direction. N for non stop atomic evolution of the soul! (2x)


Verse 2:

My genetic ethereal connection. Astro-projecting imagination, perception. Everything that we think of will and has existed. Time is a void that we filled cuz we persisted. We demanded rain and we got it or we gave it to ourselves. Creators of the universal spectrum. Non believers and the faithless we inject them. Slipping in to darkness. Rising in the sunshine. Man blind will someday find a middle ground, a balance, a prime. The technological age is all techno and no logic. Morphing, evolving spherical objects. Nothing to call us but gods, but god constantly at odds. Simultaneous opposition seen in our head nods. One forward, one backwards towards extinction. God is god. There's no distinction.


Hook:

D for domination. N for neutral. A for atomic control.

Track Name: The Stream
Verse 1:

I can't be convinced. I get lost in the pages and for a moment I kiss a star without igniting. There's nothing better or more exciting especially when it pours out of me in a flash of light. It burns atop the lines of conditioning engraving the colors of my mind. The translation of chemical signals resting atop the spine. Rap the dive, open a mind and hit the road to find another. On a mission to explore and discover a new path. This style is free, this style is me. This style's a journey to the sea to wash myself of all conformity. All I know how to do is cope with the facts. I search the surface for answers. I can't relax. Everyone's god is alive. Everyone's god is inside. Let me write one and take you for a ride. The old me has died and the new and improved me has arrived. Believe it or not you decide.


Hook:

Me? I am what I am.
A man with a plan
in search for the life
made for me especially.
This life (8x)

Me? I am what I am.
A man with a plan
in search for the life

This life (8x)


Verse 2:

Doesn't it feel like something's missing? I can't quite put my finger on it. I can hear it if I listen. I tend to believe there's something bigger than the me. Something conscious of itself. Something free connected to me universally. I mean like I'm a part of it all. Like I hear my name being called. Like in my dream I free fall almost hitting ground, but death stalls. When I can't get through it breaks walls. I'm living one second at a time, but never count. Sometimes I want to call it off when problems start to mount. Sometimes I want to give in when it shouts there's alternate routes. A new day is only hours away melting my doubts. This is inspiration, this is revelation! No more hesitation, no more aggravation. This is when I make friends with them through the connection of the paper with this pen. C'mon ya'll let's make it blend.

Verse 3:

I am a pacifist, but you should fear my wrath. My pencil cuts through monotony to form a path. Writing out of history the devils laugh. Never having to look back once. When I was young I wore the cap of a dunce. Now the spirit of a soul genius runs through my blood. I have not lost but gained an inspiration, gained an invitation to drink from the water hole. Sharing with the rest of the cosmos and universe as a whole and from there I draw a message on the wall. Something that says something to us all. Something never planned. Something came about when we jammed. It was inconceivable and unmanned. Like vesstles we transported the goods. NO SCAM!. The gospel aint the bible. It's getting through to your rivals and now we're building. Now we're persuing it more. We know where it's stored. Never again will it be ignored. Never again!

Track Name: Death
Verse 1:

I think of the day of my death. I am sure that when my flesh deteriorates there'd still be something left. 21 grams to be exact. A spirit, a soul, an energy intact. The God in me in fact. No fear of what's to come. No fear of never seeing the sun cuz when it's done it's done. I can embrace having no mouth, no body, no face. I can embrace belonging to no race. The universe will be my final resting place. Will it be rest? Will it be in peace? Quiet the mind before I cease and my mastery of the netherworld will increase. I don't ignore what's in store. I face the rain as it pours. Let my body be for 3 even if on the filthy floor see!? What do we know about how it goes? What knowledge do we have on what happens when the blood stops flow? Maybe none yo. None yo.


Hook:

Yesterday | is all we think about.
The future is an imaginary place where dying is where it ends.
This simply can't be the last of our travels.
Ask your self logically my friends. Today is the same as | yesterday (2x)


Verse 2:

People pass everyday. Family, friends and enemies the same way. I like that word pass as if to say gaining entry to a new place with just little to pay. The body is a vessel like a bubble containing air. Most say the opposite, but I think life is fair. The balance must be upheld. Our burden to comprehend, to bare. Like the space between the kick and the snare. So fragile, so momentary. Some of them may not care only cuz they're scared. Talk about it they wouldn't dare. Not me. I except it totally, wholeheartedly. There's so much suffering being alive is all anyone is discussing. It's no wonder why everybody's rushing. The end is never near. Infinity in eternity we steer. Open your third and pier. You'll hear these words so clear, death is something to be endeared, revered.

Verse 3:

Letting go is a philosophy. It aint pretentious or overcomplicated. I've noticed Christians lack the most faith when it comes to after life they don't even debate it. Heaven and hell? Well, it makes egos swell. Rules to follow so hollow like empty conch shells and in the end all you hear is the vastness of the ocean. Religious fanatics think they're coasting. Jesus dead on their necks bragging and boasting. Heaven aint real, hell isn't real. Eternity and the perpetual recycling of God is real and now you know the deal. This life is just one layer to peel, one layer to reveal and I'm a crack the seal. Tell you exactly how I feel. Your fortune teller on this wheel going round and round, round and round, round and round, round and round, round and round, round and round....

Track Name: La Nada Feat. Omniscient
Verse 1:

The sun has never set. It simply disappeared behind the earth as it revolved. The end is a fiction of imaginations unresolved. Don't ever say the worlds end is at hand. It simply isn't true. Sinking somewhere different like quicksand out of the blue. Where you fall isn't up to you. It's up to us. We are the grains of sand themselves. We must comprehend these life trends for these trends transcend space and time keeping us blind women and men. I have no interest in bathing in ignorance for a lifetime. That's why I might rhyme of these things. Recycling is the concept that brings life. Life sings and death is the chorus before the second verse in an endless melody. I know what I feel. I have faith in this one. No one can tell me. I foresee a future of constant change. Nothing to stop it. Apocalypse cometh and goeth. Drop it!


Hook:

Move forth in to the nothing.
Show the rest of these cowards we aint bluffing.
When the time comes to embrace end
will you relate friend or
will you hate them?
Following snake men. (2x)


Verse 2 ( Omniscient ):

I will not die. It will not end. In another life maybe, speaking in a past tense. Apocalypse in so when embedded, fear in our hearts. Showing up without notice like a thief in the dark. I know it's prophecy, but sometimes I feel they mocking me. Most times it be exact. My philosophy packaged differently. Eye of a silver dome. Timeless symphony, the hoods my corner stone and it'll be there way after my thought is gone. My soul's in a marathon chased by babylon. Hopefully it finds peace. My heart carries on. Hope I transcend messages they can sing along. Songs of freedom tested through ages. Battles written on pages that made changes. I guess the thing to me that's strange is the way we comply to stories with out investigating all arrangements.


Hook:

Move forth in to the nothing.
Show the rest of these cowards we aint bluffing.

Verse 3:

As it comes close I feel free. More freedom any man can handle. My whole desire is to reach it. My whole purpose is to teach it. No fear of the darkness. No need to bleach it. Nowhere to go but up or down for neither exist. In space you'll hear the sounds of my prayers I insist. Only if I persist. El final, un beso, a kiss. Goodnight at it's simplest. Join in the celebration. Call us pagans cuz of our similar vibrations. Humanity, I'm bigger than one nation under God. I'm a star from afar awaiting super nova status. This body of mine is a stage, an apparatus. Technology of the highest, but techno non non the less. If you apply infinity in to your equation you'll be blessed. The whole thing is an endless quest. Not to be the greatest or the best, but to ultimately fix this mess.

Track Name: New Dawn
Verse 1:

I never feared much. Well what I mean is with experience I've learned and evolved and what I once worried over I'm quick to resolve. My midlife has come early so to speak. I don't expect anyone to understand my intentions. From My Mother And Father Were Astronauts to Alternate Invention I was trying to stabilize comprehension. No longer stagnated in a pause. Constantly progressing with my flaws. I mean I'm changing. I suppose I'll write an album for guidance. Something that I can hear in the darkness above the violence. My mind has reached has reached a silence. A state of absolute introspection. The strength in me detection.


Hook:

It's a new dawn.
It's a new day.
It's a new life for me.
Yeah, it's a new dawn, it's a new day. (2x)


Verse 2:

It's a new dawn, new day, new life for me. It's the first time, first look, first time I see. I've been blessed with the worst and best. Seeing that it's all lessons. It's all tests. Can it be that I get it? Could it be I got nothing to regret kid? My vision improved. Over the years I've learned the rules. Which ones to break, which ones to remake remarkably all for Gods sake. Well maybe not all of it so clearly or obvious. It's just I know now. I walk the line in a sense. i freed my mind from it's tense pretense and accumulated knowledge. Mentored by women, no college.


Hook:

It's a new dawn.
It's a new day.
It's a new life for me.
Yeah, it's a new dawn, it's a new day. (2x)


Verse 3:

I'm a new man, new mind, new seed living. I'm a flip it, I'm a change it, I'm a supersede what you've been missing. I got the rest of my life and I've gained control. A new cat, a new soul to behold. A new project placed in the sun from the void, from the cold. Smiles and contemplation, Miles for the population, files on these connotations and locations in this nation. It matters not. Freedom is what I got. Your boy Seven Star in spot! Never flinching as the time bomb drops. The fearlessness never stops. Maybe this could be the new move, the new groove, the new Pop. I can see I can grow a new crop.

Track Name: All I Need
Verse 1:

Ayo Chavo I got this. One listen and it clicked. I played this shit as soon as it was ripped and burned it on to disk. This beat is perfect for my lyric bisque. In other words I'm cooking up some shit. In other words Que tio sta frio! Inspira tiro! Cuidao que me meto en un lio! Vibrations across nations build foundations to crush yours. Face it it's our time now. A new music styled after the greats you haven't heard in a while. This beat speaks volumes I consume all alone in my living room. New music is like new perfume, one whiff aint enough! You got to follow her down the street until you get her to speak. Until all of your words seep in her soul. I write despite the pressures of my life take a toll. I pay and I'm on my way yo! Open ears lead to longer years. Even with all the trees and the beers I'll survive. Even with all the blood, sweat and tears I'll survive. Observe moi. Sept Etoile drive. The extinction agenda has arrived. I'll open it up when I decide, be a guide and take all of you mother fuckers for a ride!


Hook:

All I need is music therapy to make me free so I can

Verse 2:

You ever feel like what you're working on can change the world? You got so much pride. Conscious of every little thing you glide across the floor. You can't hide the power absorbed by the ride. You roar like a lion when you're finished. Not even your haters can diminish the glow. Like I'm on the verge of something spectacular you know?! Every time I put a pen and pad together it changes weather. Rain to sunshine, snow to spring time. Even when I got the blues writing changes hues to bright lime. Matter of fact now is the right time to write rhymes and I'm at it again in this infinite trend. It never ends! Be happy you contributed something. Even if it was only that one thing. When inspiration hits you don't ignore it. You explore it, you adore it cuz there's only so few in this human pay per view. If your vision is clear and theirs is skewed then obviously it's up to you to help them see it anew. Cada vez que escribo I leave clues. I'm on my P's and Q's. My 1's and 2's. Controlled cruise towards horizon I flew. The poet is dormant in who ever closes their eyes bidding adieu to anything foreign or new. You never knew!
