Track Name: Ascending
As the light dawns upon the sahara
And the lions and cheetas, they all rejoice
It’s only natural, on discovery
We wanna tell you the story, now follow me

And the light of the sun will soon shine down,
It’s only just a matter of time
From Cape-town crossing all borders
We’re gonna make it, just fine

As the sun in the middle of the sky
Embraces the plains in its glow
We walk further down to the sea
Wondering if we can have a shot at the ocean

And the sand between our toes getting hotter
And we need water, cool water
No boats to take us where we wanna go
But we can swim, as long as we look for…
Track Name: Midnight Sun
All right, what is it so far?
So far we have been dropping multiple bars
We might make it to mars
Just keep life on the down low

Roads already set out of maternity wards
Three forces united in a master sword
We just have to find the soul
And you know just what light it takes

Live at night like it’s the day
A few cool ones and I will stay
Bare feet, I don’t mind the rain
All your problems flushed away
By the midnight sun

We might sleep, but there’s no time for rest
You got to keep your cool, on the path of succes
That means you and me, we will be the best
Don’t care for no other man

It’s just that, clouds start to form and the sun gets muddy
Can’t even hardly see or spot, all the people who love me
Like us, They will never forget where they’re coming from
Homes, houses, kids or spouses
Lie about your wheres and look up to the sky
Spot your own miracles with your own eyes

Live at night like it’s the day
A few cool ones and I will stay
Bare feet, I don’t mind the rain
All your problems flushed away
By the midnight sun
Track Name: Act II: No Brothers
No sisters, no brothers
No mothers, no lovers
Mama used to say that the only way
Was to love in the night and day

Yes, the light might cover your face,
But darkness shines in deeper water
Even with your face down

Now that you’re all grown up
Big money, empty bottles and a full cup
I might even join the club
But only to write your wrongs

I’ll write, seventy novels on your life as it is
Heartache, neglection and it’s hard to break
I can hardly state the things that I still like about you

And off of that, I try to jump
We try to give you that bump
But you kept jumping on the crossbars
While we spent paper on a life made up

We don’t need no people to tell us what to think
know, wish, do, we can build our own empire
We don’t need no people to tell us what to think
know, wish, do, real family will takes us higher

No-one seems to bother, as I slide through caves of eternal sorrow
I can’t summon the spirit of my significant other
I have no brothers

The madhouse that we call home is populated by the so-called
warriors of innocent minds and one day we will find that those
who faught for glory will be the death of our own human kind
No-one is kind

How do we teach our kids if all we know is being tought?
Being tought by the hands of our parents and creators
Being tought by those who claim not to be the purpetrators
Stay inside, where you’ll hide the fact that art is not your best wife
While we’re watching stars you’re looking straight into the sun, son

We don’t need no people to tell us what to think
Know, wish, do, we can build our own empire
We don’t need no people to tell us what to think
Know, wish, do, real family will takes us higher
Track Name: Shatter
Stuck on this road, no warning signs
Same melody that’s in our minds
What if we all just held the same hands?
When we all sing different songs
Close your eyes and hope it gets better
But when you crash just let the glass shatter

In life it’s just a matter of waking up
Cutting class got high once and now it’s all shaken up
Born amongst the highest of classes
They got several passes, fuck several asses

Staring at these bars, I just wanna be free
And we just wanna sing what if we sing out of key?
Stevie Wonder told us, Sir Duke most of all
As I wish upon another star, tell me who we are

It’s that same shit that got us through, the same difference
It’s the same person, just a different appearance
Let us all enjoy that we can see a thing
Light a car on fire, watch it burn while you sing

Stuck on this road, no warining signs
Same melody that’s in our minds
What if we all just held the same hands?
When we all sing different songs
Close your eyes and hope it gets better
But when you crash just let the glass shatter
Track Name: Peace + Rest
Life
No rest
Peace
No peace, no death

If life has no rest, there’s no peace in death

No death
Track Name: Act III: Sleep
We have said it more than once
Start it from the top and you can see how we run
Circles, lines, girls so fine
We will never be done, so listen up

Spend these days on em, when i lay on em
Spending days on me, so dont sleep on me
All these days for em, what we lay for em
Days ahead for us, so dont sleep on us

Spend these days on em, when i lay on em
Spending days on me, so dont sleep on me
All these days for em,what we lay for em
All these bae’s for us, they’ll sleep on us
So dont sleep on us

Work around the clock, we rock
Plenty of parties but no place to be …
No bars, we will never be stopped
Fly away like the free birds we are
We go off to unknown lands
Keep an eye on us as we go by cause we

Spend these days on em, when i lay on em
Spending days on me, so dont sleep on me
All these days for em, what we lay for em
Days ahead for us, so dont sleep on us

Spend these days on em, when i lay on em
Spending days on me, so dont sleep on me
All these days for em,what we lay for em
All these bae’s for us, they’ll sleep on us
So dont sleep on us
Track Name: FOTTVS
She said: I got a peach, but where did my mango?
Hard to bury the stones, if all these melons show
Would you let me rock you like a chili pepper?
Strawberry swinging you
Wouldn’t it be better?

Pumpkin I don’t need to pay dimes
Don’t you worry, I’ll be sweet like limes, so

Just fucking in love
Tomato, tomato, girl you know my motto
If you’re fine as wine I’ll be eating grapes above your blueberry
eyes And if the apple’s still close to the tree
It’ll be a fruit festivity

I know that I might be hard to cope
But as long as you’re here I am willing
To turn on the radio
I just like to watch, and catch this feeling I got
I don’t like cold over hot but I like you
So let me turn on you and the radio
Yerah

See thanks to the banana we be shaking on the right, (right?) the hi-hats on the left, (to the left) the kick in the middle, so can you kick (Yes, you can!) with a clap and a beat, I mean a clap and a kickdrum, um, so yeah

Yerah I’m just channeling these fruits on the TV-screen, but the colour ain’t orange
It’s pink, out there to be seen, but why tell me why it’s just nature, or nurture

I guess it’s just a wierd human kind of love, only we can understand but we’re in need of love, maybe form above? Wait…break it down

I think we should stop dis-gussing and just stay good friends
I know it seems bad, it actually is kinda wonderfull
It’s kinda wonderfull

But you have all of these people just thinking that the slick with the wax on
I’m talking ‘bout the dudes that walk around with the hats off
I’m trying to show off, turn all of the lights off, we should turn them back on
But don’t you dare to turn your back on her, ‘cause she’s still humaine
With a mind you can get inside of, like Pharrell though, still a G I R L who
Can decide what ever she wanna do, ‘till the day that you start to fade away
Body’s as deep as an 808, along with a snare too tight wanna get it in your nose
But it ain’t too clear till overdose, like crystal, just do the meth hand you’ll crack the code
But the wrong way, ‘cause you’re doing it white, so the right way will be doing it black, all right STOP OBJECTION. Let’s not race fast to conclusions
Cool…
Track Name: Sky Hi
Places where you stay
Make me feel
What you see
And if I could choose in any way
It would be you and me
It’s just you and me

Sitting in a tree
Dreaming of Florida
You ordered the
Early bird
You make me fly

Sky Hi

Baby can’t you see
I ask you, gracefully
If you’d be my double harmony
I will pay for drinks today
‘cause it’s you and me

Sitting in a tree
Dreaming of Florida
You ordered the
Early bird
You make me fly

Sky Hi

You recall holidays
Miles above me is the girl I see
She loves me, ain’t that the world to me
We’ll conquer it together, forever
There ain’t no better
Let us fly so high in this blue blue sky
And this is how we say bye bye

Sky Hi
