I would like to animate these words in. "The" is synced with it's audio counterpart but how do i go before "the" to animate it in? When the keyhead is before "the" it's blank as you see there. thank you

Are those text layers? They look like they are graphics.

Either way, you can simply drag the end to trim the media to the playhead.

To animate the text, if it's a graphic your options are more limited. If it's a text layer, you can use text behaviors to animate it.

Trim it to where you want the animation to start, then apply the appropriate behavior.

So would that make the word animate in and be in place when the word is spoken. By that i mean the animation has finished and the word is sitting there right as the word is spoken

You determine timing of the animation by the duration of the behavior. I do recommend some training it would make your life much easier :-)
