about

This album is a compilation of the music I have recorded over the course of 4 years. I am a writer who has merely written lyrics and recorded over some of my favorite Productions. These songs were intended to be on different albums, but due to many circumstances, these full-length studio albums have never surfaced. The Jeph Barthold Demo follows no concept. It is a mixtape that is continuously expanding. In many songs, I am heard calling myself, "Proverb" which is no longer my stage name. It is now simply Jeph Barthold. I hope you can come to appreciate the content within these songs.

Track Name: Come Home
[Verse 1]

Gotta go and get my stuff together
I'm off to better both our lives
Please be strong, dress appropriate for the weather
And try not to keep track of time
Though I'm gone you will see
The blessings before you are products of me
And my return is merely
A completion of our destiny, but 'til then

[Chorus]

Will you
wait for me?
I'm leaving
It's been too long
I'm on my way home

I'd seek
Every means
Drive over
The limits of speed
To reach you back home

[Verse 2]

In my mind are remnants of beauty
Your face engulfs my memories
The hardest part of facing these obligations
Is knowing it's not up to me
I'd walk through all treacherous paths
For our future and hope that they'd take pride in their past
It's been awhile since I've been gone
I know I've been away too long (too long)
But tell me, tell me, tell me baby

[Chorus]

Will you
wait for me?
I'm leaving
It's been too long
I'm on my way home

I'd seek
Every means
Drive over
The limits of speed
To reach you back home

[Collision]

Please,
(Will you)
Oh baby would you wait?
(For me)
I'm 'bout to leave this place?
(Leaving)
It's been way too long
(Too long)
I'm on my way home

(I'd seek)
Ooh girl by any means
('vry means)
I will drive over
(Over)
The limits of speed just to see you once again

[Bridge]

Nothing can
Come between
You and me
Eternally

Love is all
That we know
Count on me
To be home

I'm gonna come home
Track Name: Body of Water
[Verse 1]

Calamity, calamity
Hit so hard
And the affects brought by such magnitude
'caused some scars
"We had a good run, we had a good run"
What constitutes far?
"We know where we are, we know where we are"
I know who you are

[Chorus 2X]

Stuck in this body of water and your face is land
I see you comin', don't know if I can
Keep on, keep on pushin' these waves
(Before I push you away)

Stuck in this body of water [2X]

[Verse 2]

You are the breath that brings me back to life
You are the sand I hit beneath the tide
When I'm washed up and oh so cold
You were the one I can hold
The fear I have I simply can't help
Is losing you to someone else
My love for you runs too deep

[Chorus 4X]

Stuck in this body of water and your face is land
I see you comin', don't know if I can
Keep on, keep on pushin' these waves
(Before I push you away)

[Outro]

Before I push you away [9X]

[Chorus 2X overlapping with Outro]

Stuck in this body of water and your face is land
I see you comin', don't know if I can
Keep on, keep on pushin' these waves
(Before I push you away)

Stuck In this body of water
Track Name: Pseudo
Who am I?
A compilation of lies
It's funny how truth can make you fuckin' reach your demise
A pseudo conception is what I presented to friends of mine
Let's play a game of, "What part of Jeph Barthold did you find?"
Nothin'. I told you that nigga be frontin'
Talkin' 'bout how he stuntin' when he don't amount to nothin'
Self-Attention was somethin' I couldn't prevent, so I went
to Gap outlets and spent every last cent
Drivin' home thinkin' how I'm gonna pay the rent
Man, God damn this fuckin' cycle I'm in
But boy, all this spinnin' is really feelin' fun
And if I keep my lies together I won't come out lookin' dumb
But eventually from my past I will run
Sooner or later they'll add things up and find the sum
How do I look now?
Do you like what you've befriended
The moment I said hi, is when it shoulda ended
All the fictional girls that I told you I sexed
Is that not why we talked? Don't it make you feel vexed?
Uh, I intended for you to feel pity
For a guy, that wanted nothin' but a peek of your titty
And you ain't hesitate for a second, that's what breaks my heart
You fell in love with an impostor from the start
I want all who I've met to be a pawn of my limbo
But fibs aren't things easily thrown out the window
That permanence is in the firmament of my dreams
And I'm afraid so I seek isolation by any means
I don't wanna straighten these seams with their condemning iron
To be honest I just want to be flyin' and kiss the stars of Orion.

Announcement to Audience Interlude:

ATTENTION! ATTENTION! UH HA!
UH, JEPH BARTHOLD, YES, JEPH BARTHOLD,
THE GREAT MAN YOU ONCE KNEW AND LOVED, HA!
HE'S A HOAX, HE'S A HOAX GUYS!
HE'S A FUCKING HOAX!
JEPH BARTHOLD IS NOTHING BUT A PSEUDO CHARACTER.

But when I touch earth
And see what my faulty character's worth
Was my happiness at the expense of others' hurt?
I can't simply digress when there's much to suppress
And I guess, there's no other way to rid of my stress
But to come clean and let 'em see who's behind the mask
Spent years tryin' to master MF DOOM's craft
But I can't grasp somethin' I'm not...
I can't grasp somethin' I'm not

Outro: 8X

Acceptance the greatest substance of your being
Reflect on yourself and ask, "Who are you being?"

Who are you being? 2X
Track Name: Inquisitional Treatment
Yo, Yo listen!
I'm like a slugger when I put my mug up on the mic
There ain't no questionin' whether or not I'm gonna strike
That be a definite, deem me the precedent
Take a standard and settin' it, please don't fail to mention it
Don't even put a sentence in, I got you in a nutshell
Your girl punked you out and said you couldn't nut well
Try to conceal your shame with pretentious claims
But the fact remains, your name's in the same vain as lame
And that blame stems from you and whoever assembled your crew
If that doesn't render your view, you're probably due for a clue
See what I'm doin' is true. You're a mere fabrication
A compilation of degradation in consolidation
So call it hatin'. Nigga I'm a muhfuckin' statement
I made gold with a tape deck and a basement
To all you spoon-fed rappers being praised in the game
What's the point of "goin' in" if you gon' come out the same my nigga?

Chorus:
NO THEY CAN'T DO
No no they can't do
WHAT I CAN DO
Wh-what I can do
NO THEY CAN'T DO
They can't stand in my shoes
WHAT I CAN DO
They ain't got the right tools
NO THEY CAN'T DO
Belligerent fools
WHAT I CAN DO
They can't do what I do
NO THEY CAN'T DO
they can't do what I do
WHAT I CAN DO
uh yeah!

(continued)
NO THEY CAN'T DO
A yay yay yay yay yeah!
WHAT I CAN DO
A yay yay yay yay yeah!
NO THEY CAN'T DO
They can't do what I do
WHAT I CAN DO
They can't do what I do
NO THEY CAN'T DO
They can't stand in my shoes
WHAT I CAN DO
They ain't got the right tools
NO THEY CAN'T DO
No no no no
WHAT I CAN DO
Yeah, uh, woo

Trying to stump me, is like stabbin' a knife into concrete
That jab will vibrate and make ya hands-a-shake
Whan't that subtle? That's a metaphor for rebuttal
You niggas would have to huddle for a third of my brain muscle
Compared to my seas of thoughts, ya'll just swimmin' in a puddle
I can tell there ain't no room for intellect in your bubble
Pop! I fuckin' hate it, the culture is overrated
Full of imitators with sounds that are reiterated
But me, a coy boy with the pen as my toy
The kid at the lunch table that you try to avoid
'Cause he'll take a challenge and size it down to a false alarm
You ain't doin' him harm, just ignitin' the bomb
You punks need to reconsider
Either that or redeliver more correctly next time you step G
Inquisitive minds long to dwell in my psyche
I made this song so you can get a chance to sight see
Don't like it than bite me, at least you can try
But from the length of my eyes, your a faulty disguise
So I don't pay 'em no mind, nor give 'em the time
Poor excuses for rhymes, I need nooses to bind
Why bother to be consistent if your catalogue's weak
I swear people are just itchin' for a reason to speak
But at the end of the day, they just stuck in repeat
I'm calculated, but when I make it, you know that its heat, YEAH!

Chorus:
NO THEY CAN'T DO
No no they can't do
WHAT I CAN DO
Wh-what I can do
NO THEY CAN'T DO
They can't stand in my shoes
WHAT I CAN DO
They ain't got the right tools
NO THEY CAN'T DO
Belligerent fools
WHAT I CAN DO
They can't do what I do
NO THEY CAN'T DO
No no no no
WHAT I CAN DO
No no no no!


(continued)
NO THEY CAN'T DO
They can't do what I do
WHAT I CAN DO
They can't stand in my shoes
NO THEY CAN'T DO
They can't do what I do
WHAT I CAN DO
They can't do what I do
NO THEY CAN'T DO
They can't do what I do
WHAT I CAN DO
They can't stand in my shoes
NO THEY CAN'T DO
They can't do what I do
WHAT I CAN DO
No no no no

Ha! no no no no
Ha! they can't do what I do
Yo, they can't do it
Uh, c'mon!

Outro:
Yeah!
They can't do what I do (5x)
