As Far As I Can See feat. OJ

from by Allen Mask



As Far As I Can See is an old joint we brought back to life for this record. I did this song on tour with Oranjesta and MC Status a few years ago and felt like remixing it for the L.P.

The song is about music as an escape. Special thanks to Dave, Alex and my Cali crew for helping me get this done.


Verse 1:

Once upon a time
Far away beyond the never lands
I’m...mentally convoluted
I’ve never been a Socrates but these new philosophies
Say that my...batteries not included
If I could make a wish I'd wish away my expectations
For everything in...excess of mindlessness
In hopes to minimize what I would call a haunting aftertaste
For reasons your finding this


I know that I wont...
Put myself together if the pieces never fit well in the first place
And I know that I don’t...
Really understand that what I’m feeling is so far from being worst case
And I know that I won't...
Be strong enough to stabilize when I just can't control the other side of me
I know that I don’t…

Ever really want to leave…as far as I can see


My life is almost over
But I still feel alright
Cuz the music gives me closure
And lets me see the light
My life is almost over
But I still feel alright
Cuz the music gives me closure
And lets me see the light

Verse 2:

Once upon a time far away from all utopia
I’m...morally melancholy
This pride and prejudice give way to any evidence that me myself and I
Are more than...anybody
This is a scheduled disappointment
If I a vent I’d love your ears for just another minute
I'd love to go it all alone but all I’ve learned is
Solitude wants you smothered in it
