CANARY IN A COAL MINE

This EP takesHhip-Hop and combines it with a heavy pop and rock influence creating a unique sound and style all on its own. Each song promises a story for the listener to follow delivered alongside clever wordplay and a sense of humour. All songs are upbeat with the exception of “GetAway” a slower tune with a deep thought-provoking story. With concepts everyone can relate to, songs like “Weirdos Win” and “Higher” teach self-confidence while “Buried Alive” deals with matters of the heart. The name “Canary In A Coal Mine” is an old saying which today translates to “warning.”

By naming the EP “Canary In A Coal Mine” I am sending out a warning to Hip-Hop that I have come to change the way rap music is written, recorded, and heard!” – Goliath PAW

Lyrics

Higher
Chorusmusic stays on my mind

GetAway
ChorusSomebody save me from myself I got to getaway
I'm hearing voices in my head they driving me astray
no matter where I go they always there I cant escape
I finna crack today they driving me insaneVerse 1Now I know what don did it to was all that weed smoking
They say it open up a part of the brain and keep it open
I knew I should have stopped when I felt them signs but I kept on toking
1st year of college thats when I felt them poking
knock knock whose there? should I let them in
I didn't have a choice he broke the door and brought his friends
they stayed for a couple days made my brain their den
telling me their stories of why they came to live within
but then they all left
except the main one
he told me he was staying
and that I was his son
listen to me he said Ill teach you who you need to be
where to go what to do when to eat and sleep
and if you follow me we'll get along just fine
but if you disobey I promise you gon lose your mind
what could I do I had to listen to him man I was trapped
I tried praying to God but he wouldn't answer backChorusSomebody save me from myself I got to getaway
I'm hearing voices in my head they driving me astray
no matter where I go they always there I cant escape
I finna crack today they driving me insaneVerse 2At first everything was cool he didn't ask for much
he was just like a friend I even gained his trust
we would talk on the bus or when I got home
when I was in my class or when I was alone
he would always add his input when I thought of something
it kind of got annoying but I couldn't do nothing
he made sure I did my homework and I went to school
paid my bills on time if man dem test he kept me cool
he only asked one thing of me keep on smoking weed
little did I know he just got stronger with every toke I breathedat first it was just a bit but he demanded more
I tried to ignore but thats when shit hit the floor
I couldn't sleep at night he kept me up arguing
putting me down with every chance he got I couldn't win
we went from friends to enemies in a couple minutes
but he wasn't right when he said only he could end itChorusSomebody save me from myself I got to getaway
I'm hearing voices in my head they driving me astray
no matter where I go they always there I cant escape
I finna crack today they driving me insaneVerse 3Now I don got on my knees and prayed to the Lord
talking to God like damn boy why you pick me for
was I really that bad when I was growing up
please take the devil out my head because hes blowing up
and thats when the voice started to get serious
talking bout suicide like I'm delirious
we can finally meet PAW aren't you curious
boy why you talking to God man he ain't hearing us
now it took a long time to get rid of the voice
he still come around sometimes just to make some noise
trying to deploy a plan just to catch your boy
but its hard for him to get in cuz aye my heart is full of joy
but the days I'm feeling down he finna creep on in
trying to be my friend but no not that route again
but sometimes Ill chat back because I'm hard headed
he'll never leave my brain man he a part of it

bullied as a kid I never understood the reason
wished everyday was Friday waiting for the weekend
at night sometimes I'd wished I'd never wake up from my sleeping
because the next day that meant Id have to go to school
and put up with my classmates and ridicule
ok so I was smart I tucked in my shirt
I didn't talk to girls yea I was a nerd
never was myself copied everybody else
and still never was accepted boy I need help
what is it about me that they don't likecuz if they knew my personality Im sure they would right
but the best advice came from a random
he said just be yourself no need to act like the man dem
and from that day I made it my mantram
and ain't nobody held me back since I'm a championChorusHold your head up ignore what they say
Just remember in this day and age

sometimes her girlfriends visit I love when they make noise
I love how they so poised ya to start out

Buried Alive
Chorus X2To fall down and be buried alive
The walls are all coming to life
The fault was all mine
Was caught in a lie then buried aliveVerse 1So we started out kissing and hugging
touching and rubbing, which only led to one thing
then it got hot like an oven
me rounding off 3rd base with no clothes led to loving
was really supposed to be nothing just a fling
but then you changed to my main thing
i mean you quickly changed to my main thing
found myself at the store picking out a promise ring
other girls, cut them like string
aint no other girl made me feel like a king
aint no other girl made me feel like a winner
when i was in yours girl you were all mine
my main focus make you go every time
gripping your shoulders running my fingers down your spine
while you slowly wind back and forth like a chimetill you climband I'd say there you go
you know I like it nice and slow
i never thought I'd fall for my deciet
you were never the main dish just a little treat
but now this thing is more than beds and sheets
i tried to play the game but ended up getting beatChorus X2To fall down and be buried alive
The walls are all coming to life
The fault was all mine
Was caught in a lie then buried aliveVerse 21st you'd climax than I'd climax
watching you get off is like IMAX
so beautiful your sound and visual
like i can feel you soul so spiritualbut lets not forget the physical
your shape and curves irresistible
and if your body was a temple it would be outlandish
and I'd be in yours praying like a mantiseveryday and I'd be so faithful
to only you cuz your so greatful
after I make you go cuz than you make me go
wait baby nice and slow
I aint ready to blowI aint ready for dome
I aint ready for bedI aint ready to sleep
K now im ready for head
and as i release the flow...then you can say
there you go
you know I like it nice and slow
i never thought I'd fall for my deciet
you were never the main dish just a little treat
but now this thing is more than beds and sheets
i tried to play the game but ended up getting beatChorus X2To fall down and be buried alive
The walls are all coming to life
The fault was all mine
Was caught in a lie then buried aliveVerse 3I never knew you could be this perfect
and everyday to me you look better on the surface
and on the inside, all your pride, you set aside and it shows you're worth it
I still get real nervous, 143 ya you've heard this
but not from me, and I think that Im ready to stop all my jerkness
I want to tell you how Ive been feeling
I want this to be more then just dealings
I want you to be my girl all seasons
I want to make you go like you're leaving
all day all night dry heaving
I need CPR Im not breathing
when shes away I stay weaken
buried alive in my feelingsChorus X2To fall down and be buried alive
The walls are all coming to life
The fault was all mine
Was caught in a lie then buried alive
