[Lyrics]

These four walls are not these four walls.
Freer than a bird, I walk through those walls.
Use my art to get through those walls.
That's my escape whenever I get dogged.

Give us do' wit no windows of opportunity
we still gone be trapped like Shaggy and Scooby Dooby be.

I'm tryna get your brain out that windowpane.
I'm tryna get your brain on that windowed plane.


(Chorus)
Visions getting through the walls
to the mind's eye so your eyes see through the walls. (x2)

Visions getting through the walls
to mind's eye so your eyes envision more. (x2)

(Verse)
These four walls are not these four walls.
I talk that truth and break the fourth wall.
You can too the truth is in ya'll,
But they know that too, watch out for trap doors.

I know how to get you outta where you are,
but the truth is it ain't behind closed doors,

I'm tryna get your brain out the higher plane.
I'm tryna get your brain on a HIGHER plane.


(Chorus)
Visions getting through the walls
to the mind's eye so your eyes see through the walls. (x2)

Visions getting through the walls
to mind's eye so your eyes envision more. (x2)


(Verse)
These four walls are not these four walls.
Once you know that, they got you enclosed,
They wanna make a deal, to keep you indoors.
They just want you stuck in Monty Halls.

I know how to get you outta where you are
but the truth is it ain't behind closed doors,

I'm tryna get your brain out the game it's playin.
Im tryna put your brain on game, to a different plane.


(Chorus)
Visions getting through the walls
to the mind's eye so your eyes see through the walls. (x2)

Visions getting through the walls
to mind's eye so your eyes envision more. (x2)


(Verse)
These four walls are not these four walls,
But only the gifted, get through those walls.
It'll be a phase to get through walls.
Take Pryde in yourself, to get through those walls.

I know how to get you outta where you are
but the truth is it ain't behind closed doors.

I'm tryna get your brain outta thinkin plain.
I'm tryna get your brain to see it very plain.


(Chorus)
Visions getting through the walls
to the mind's eye so your eyes see through the walls. (x2)

Visions getting through the walls
to mind's eye so your eyes envision more. (x2)


(Verse)
These four walls are not these four walls.
Ones like Platform Nine and Three Fourths.
I just hope I get through to ya'll,
'Fore my train of thought leaves, and I hit a brick wall.

I know how to get you outta where you are
but the truth is it ain't behind closed doors.

I'm tryna get your brain outta speaking plain.
I'm tryna get brain plainspoken once again.


(Chorus)
Visions getting through the walls
to the mind's eye so your eyes see through the walls. (x2)

Visions getting through the walls
to mind's eye so your eyes envision more. (x2)


(Verse)
These four walls are not these four walls.
Sometimes life can push you to a wall.
Once you hit a wall, keep goin' forward.
Truth be told there are no real walls.

These four walls are not these four walls.
Close my eyes. I don't see four walls.
All I see are ways to outwards.
All I see are views from outdoors.

His debut album, Circa ’16, emphasizes mindfulness and has even been deemed as "meditative rap" by some.
Whatever the label Ven is definitely a unique artist with unique sound.
