Track Name: Mbeguel (Love) feat. Ngnima-Tie.flac
VERSE 1.

inhale with the sun and the stars
in concert with the universe hear the applause
and then I’m on to the next
my stress be his dream put it in context
it takes, all the love that I got in my soul
to keep my head on straight and release control
no hands time like grains of sand
trying to walk tall when I find it hard to stand
but stand up, I do it and it feel like magic
dealing with the dumb come automatic
catch it through the speaker losing to the lesser
running with the freakers boxing my oppressors
give some get some
finding my peace and release it over drums
they wanna ignore who I am where I’m from
but I cant stop wont stop from the lungs
I breathe love speak till it manifest
leave hate and the anger and stress
lived with the sickness hung with the jealousy
and my happiness felt like it was a felony
the whole world fell on me mama in heaven
my band on the outs on the outside yelling
let let me in round the world and back again
heartbeat beatbox any bpm
but with love, say it from the start
send it and I hope that you receive it in your heart
words that I manifest do it in the park
the roof on fire but it needed that spark
and that be love.

VERSE 2.

and I can feel it from the rooftop
overlook the whole city as the moon drop
chasing it don’t stop smiling faces
looking for the love in all the wrong places
I wonder where safe is never the regret
was trying to find love in the sweat of my ex
the next day clear as I open up my eyes
turn off the tellie why they televise lies
rise with the light gift from my ancestors
trying to feel love even when I feel pressure
whole world massive party in the street
one love one people one heartbeat
bodyrockin to the bass the kick made it spark
can we just be friends broke best friends heart
she say she ok my soul get a lift
magnified by the simplest of the gifts
give thanks for the love
easier to find the feeling divine got me on cloud 9
I went around the world on a quest for the shine
was with me all the time in my body and my mind
my soul in the heavens feet in the dirt
my heart on my sleeve trying to make life work
so hard to believe and leave what was
make a new play with the faith and the love
say it with me now
love

CHORUS

I got that love inside inside and I’ma keep on vibing
keep on right and the feeling is good
don’t stop put it out let it do what it should
one time for the love and let it run free
don’t stop get the love let it be what it be
feel it feel it like
feel it feel it like
feel it feel it like
feel it feel it right
feel it feel it love
Track Name: The Remedy feat. Chris Karns aka DJ Vajra.flac
VERSE 1.

Get the energy and start a new memory
time to leave yesterdays obscenities
been in the dark now I got the spark feel free
open heart with the art street ministry
and my identity is symmetry with nature
I want serenity peace a little paper
commercial and the tube be trying to mellow and sedate ya
all about the faker and the cops run up on us
and leave r.i.p. tagged on the street corners and it’s real
these herbs think freedom is a bill
for real the science of these cats unreal
when we start the revolution all they probably do is squeal
but chill and later alligator take steps
to find my inner peace and keep my nature in check
intellect and the street smarts walking with my beat box
getting open coastin’ in slow motion
toast the world traveller hittin every line
every stage every day could be my last time
no lanes opened up so I made my own
so funny how the love far away from home
zone out with the beats rooftops to the streets
with the hippies and the freaks from the valleys to the peaks
connected like the prisons and the classroom seats
the conspiracy to kill black males is deep
was asleep awakened by the greatest in my culture
hometown crews dilligaf 360
ciphers at the e-bar and pcc
that’s when I picked up the mic and got free
the remedy.

CHORUS
a yes, yes yall and ya don’t stop
a get fresh yall to the sure shot
a yes, yes yall and ya don’t quit
get live, get live it’s the ultimate

a yes ,yes yall and ya don’t stop
a get fresh yall to the sure shot
a yes, yes yall and ya don’t quit
get live, get live it’s the ultimate
VERSE 2.

And I still push peace all the problems that I got
hard times for the independent artist low guap
lotta quality honestly see me in the photos
around the world on the low though Raashan solo
total in the moment little chip on my shoulder

give love get hate get your heart a little colder
soda taste good little candy be a treat
but when you fast and eat right
it make the sugar hard to eat
you see me in the streets think I’m just a globetrotter
it’s nada compared to my life as a father
the laws of the nature take you where you supposed to lay
Trenton Altadena Bean Town to the Bay
big shout to the cities that raised me
people so good but the governments crazy
we not just hoods in gods eyes kissing the breeze
write my name on the wall rest in peace to Teaze
the remedy.

CHORUS
a yes, yes yall and ya don’t stop
a get fresh yall to the sure shot
a yes, yes yall and ya don’t quit
get live, get live it’s the ultimate

a yes, yes yall and ya don’t stop
a get fresh yall to the sure shot
a yes yes yall and ya don’t quit
get live, get live it’s the ultimate

Track Name: Easy On Back feat. Sean LaMarr & Helen Kaiser.flac
CHORUS
we do that, that,, that
do that, that, that
do that, that
and then we ease on back

sunrays

ease on back
ease on back
ease on back
ease on back

(repeat)

VERSE 1.

start first with the nature and the sunrise
and the sun burst from the dirt to the blue skies
son flirt with the hurt open eyes wide
young cursed from the birth with the earth lies
seem love get clouded trying to find the rays
stay fresh to def but still give praise
keep my head above the water
when the life is outta order
and everything around me is ruled by the cash, cream
best friends mom was a fiend
he on a high road now living his dreams
lean head out the window let the wind touch it
why giving up the only thing coming up
when times is hard know that it aint true
I told em giving up so hard to do
that’s word to Donny Hathaway keep on track
just do that, that, that, and ease on back


CHORUS

we do that, that, that
do that, that, that
do that, that
and then we ease on back

sunrays

ease on back

sunrays

(repeat)

VERSE 2.

wake up and give thanks every morning
before the emails and the calls come in
before the missed payments and the bank statements
got me asking if I made it or is it all pretend
the journeys real as the support is
but its money over some that’s the motto for these poor kids
I gotta say that chasing it is a blessing
especially doing something you love and your invested
seen too many heights watched so many fall
wanted to change the globe but you know how that goes
dropped off at the club and started chasing girls
now we gotta feed our sons they the reason for our worlds
or at least that’s how I hope it went
cuz they here now who else supposed to show them shit
got us searching for the latest job openings
just to get over it


CHORUS

we do that that that
do that that that
do that that
and then we ease on back

sunrays

ease on back
ease on back
ease on back
ease on back

sunrays

Track Name: Music feat. Ty & Sarsha Simone.flac
VERSE 1.

I came in the form of the rays of the sun
rise of the moon sound of the drum
all in the tune no words to speak
kiss of the soul smile on your cheek
rocking the beat and I cant even choose
finding the good and the joy in the blues
digging you girl can you be my muse
travel the world see my shoes
dancing feet party and play it’s a passionate week
taking the beat from the sacrifice
chop and loop make a passionate life
with the music sick to my soul
living in love and its out of control
feel like a drug I’m addicted to flow
rush of the track high of the show
the feeling come on and the higher we go
feeling come on and the higher we go
shockin and clockin and droppin the toxin
the whole world is watching
music

CHORUS

VERSE 2.

e.t. bmx new handlebars
travel light hope you can handle ours
new music air drum cinema
take a seat grab a drink and a candy bar
it travels far like Zanzibar
I keep it close like a heartbeat
when you feel lost in the matrix
strap yourself into the car seat
something for the most low most high
doesn’t really matter let your soul fly
soul glow oh my
help me deal with life as it goes by
fame is but the be all end all
drag it down take notes transcendor
other mediums cover bpm’s
late night drum machines yeah we be them
with those tasty ingredients
kicks and snares must be obedient
I feel a rush it’s immediate
with out this I could’ve been an idiot


CHORUS
Track Name: Freak feat. Heather Vaughan.flac
VERSE 1.


early morning late night butterfly kisses
marvin on the radio and living out our wishes
skin against skin mangoes close touch
honeysuckle harmony and never too much
undo the clutch real recognize really
passion at play and it all so silly
the dealy when you laugh how it tickle my bones
and your eyes smile love never leave me alone
on the phone all hours I devour the feel
body and brains both make your whole appeal
want your extra feel and some extra time
big sky whole world and you next to mine
and your necks divine and your lips is plush
and your eyes my god did I make you blush
no rush all day we can walk the streets
watch the world watch us wishing they could freak


CHORUS

freak, freak ya’ll

want you

VERSE 2.

natures course is the remedy
for the long stress
eye contact relax let is rest so fresh
unwind let the undefined
lead to cosmic cool and the most divine
and the sonics move through space and time
so we conversate no wasted lines
just backs on the grass eyes on the clouds
breeze on the body dance when you smile
your style is a song I’ma move to the beat
turn it up loud watch the way that I freak


CHORUS

Track Name: Out Of Bounds.flac
VERSE 1.

my little son started home school
sometimes you gotta break the rules
cuz the goal and the finish it’s the journey in between
take the less road traveled make your own trail seen
and I never served fiends and never shot guns
with a negative approach you shooting arrows at the sun
lungs full of fresh oxygen prayers for the dead
who fought the good fight but caught a bullet so sad
when you fall aint important as when you standing up
sunset south shore in a pick up truck
what up Charity track take me to that place
shout to the H.I. the whole 808
with the fear and the hate you need to clear your plate
breathe deep meditate into a higher state
eat to live, live to give, give thanks for the flow
cause from the pain came the joy you might never know

CHORUS
I go out of bounds
out of bounds
and leave everything I know to go
out of bounds
and push way out the limits of what I know
and then I come back home with a brand new flow

I go out of bounds
out of bounds
and leave everything I know and go
out of bounds
and push way out the limits of what I know
and then I come back home with a brand new flow

I’m leavin
on the next train
don’t know when ill be back again…






VERSE 2.

I heard the morning call for prayer when the sun rose
the most beautifullest sound the first time exposed
in Algeria tradition getting passed down ya’ll
getting knowledge from an elder chillin in Krakow
late nights in the streets dancing in Marseille
Flagstaff to Albuquerque where them stars play
the connection that I’m seeing Africans to Europeans
Japanese to Australians North and South Americans
bear the same burdens celebrate the same joys
a universal sound when I’m saying make noise
and the music take over overtaking your mind
your best love gone job gone still you shine
day trip up to Tilden and look over the city
a little bit of distance makes the gritty look pretty
so gimme with the good and leave me with the lessor
the science of your breathing alleviate the pressure

CHORUS
go out of bounds out of bounds
and leave everything I know to go
out of bounds
and push way out the limits of what you know
and then go back home with a brand new flow

I go out of bounds
out of bounds
and leave everything I know to go
out of bounds
and push way out the limits of what you know
and then go back home with a brand new flow

I’m leavin
on the next train
don’t know when ill be back again…

the exodus effortless sisters and my brothers
stand up one foot right in front the other.
Track Name: Get Hi.flac
VERSE

and the people running away
the city full of the slave
and everyday is grey
the people gonna get it
and the cop is killing again
a brother father and friend
nobody care in the end
the people gonna get it
get it up in the morning
like the bombs and the shooting
they killing babies the babies
the blood is just the pollution
institution they getting
the money money from prison
can make a living we living
below the poverty listen
how we can get high
like airplanes in the clouds
sometimes I feel like a loser
how can my mama be proud
a step away from the hopeless
a check away from the homeless
I did a show for the troops
b-boyed with the soldiers
we getting high off the culture
dodge and weave from the shock
the system running I’m running
and trying to keep with the clock
trying to keep with the block
more sheep in the flock
is it power in numbers
or easy picking for cops
don’t worry bout nothin nothin
have a coke and a smile
they kill on camera now
most of them never see trial
if you rich then you win
if you poor then you lose
its easy peasy so sleezy
its my get high blues
I wanna get high
high above the clouds high above the hate
cynicism my own mind create get high
red white yellow black brown
body mind soul smell touch sound
come on get on its on
blood for chevron exxon example
poison the body like foods from monsanto
thin line between showbiz and a sambo
is it just the rich pulling strings like a banjo
I wanna get get high, come on and
we gotta get get high, come on and
I said get high, get high
come on and
get high
come on and
get high
Track Name: Mama Nature.flac
VERSE 1.
cloud to wind and wind to rain
sun to sky ain’t nothing tame
stars to moon black in between
trees to branches lake to stream
add the seeds plus water be
mama nature prophesy
lost and free on a mountain top
where the green reach out for the love drop
rain and the ocean touch the sand
breeze go by make love to skin
send it on it’s the mama nature
high on life and one creator
inner light shine nothing greater
polluters don’t care why we hate ya
stop the clear cut let the earth grow
we need clean air for the kids yo

CHORUS

mama nature

VERSE 2.
new day come old day falling
Japan Haiti New Orleans
real though who in control
respect the mother nature Monsanto
that’s that flow that suicide
genetic altered modified
pesticides poison the poor
eat to live cost so much more
good food good life so true
healthy eats dollar menu
can I get that way to step
sky divine smog sunset
L.A. style California dreaming
hard to inhale watch the chem trail
lungs so frail rich is scheming
cancer asthma got no stamina

CHORUS
mama nature
Track Name: Guns.flac
VERSE 1.

guns in your section guns in your scene
guns in the air get the loot take the cream
Pakistan Africa Chi-town Oakland
guns by the cop make a mama dream broken
blood on the dance floor drama at the school
shots from the glock show a crack in the cool
everybody drop everbody drop
and nobody safe suburbs to the block
you hear the gun cock click call it bloody murder
chalk’s on the street from the beef no burgers
words so dead up the gun clappin
back in the day used to settle with the scrappin
John Wayne Rambo gangland hooligans
presidential military war Afghanistan
blood for the power gun protect scene
bullets from the barrel for a barrel gasoline
we fiend for the glock semi auto double gauge
gun death no breath gone from grenades
gun for revenge body full of malice
daddy got a gun gotta protect the palace
junior got the strap guess who got the juice now
used to be a herb now words got a new style
crazy conflict licking off shots
couple in the air you can scare the whole block
guns

CHORUS

dirt on his heels wind on his back
laughter silenced from the police strap it went
buck buck buck buck
booyaka shot
buck buck buck buck
booyaka shot

dirt on her heels wind on her back
laughter silenced by the drone attack it went
buck buck buck buck
booyaka shot
buck buck buck buck
booyaka shot

VERSE 2.

playing with her dolls her brother laying on the ground
laughter the only sound until they heard the sirens
the scream from her mama people lost up in the panic
playing coming to an end and somehow its systematic
a tragic way to end the day she turned up on her heels
she stopped to see her brother finding cover in the hills
she looked up in the sky and seeing what’s about to happen
her innocence immediately lost she seen the passion
her papa on her knees what she saw
he said he said protect my family inshallah
and then the first bomb second bomb third bomb hit
her father gone mama gone brother gone sits
in the rubble of her home dolls in her hand
drone flew away alone with no fam
victim of the politics and victim of the media
and military mix up to bomb the wrong area

CHORUS

dirt on his heels wind on his back
laughter silenced from the police strap it went
buck buck buck buck
booyaka shot
buck buck buck buck
booyaka shot

dirt on her heels wind on her back
laughter silenced by the drone attack it went
buck buck buck buck
booyaka shot
buck buck buck buck

Track Name: Hold On feat. Christina Tamayo.flac
Far beyond this day
and the words help to explain
where a little faith
goes a long way

there’s a little space
and a calming place
where that push and pull fades away

there’s a beauty in the way
that life tends to arrange
so remind me once again
to hold on my friend
to hold on my friend

VERSE

hold on to the song hold on to the sun
hold on to yourself and the time gon come
like change and the rain soon fall
but hold on to faith and then stand up tall
hold on to your love hold on to the joy
hold on to the truth no doubt will destroy
so crazy the noise so hard the belief
so easy to hate so hard for the peace
but hold strong sister hold strong brother
hold strong daddy hold strong mother
the world gone mad the people seem crazy
right seem wrong tragedy don’t faze me
but hold to belief believe in humanity
when even that seem and sound like insanity
let go of vanity hold on to passion
hold intuition hold on to laughing
even a fraction hold on your soul
hold on to god let loose your control
hold on to nature watch it just grow
let it just be and it’s so beautiful
hold on

look up and smile for me
hold on you helped me see
for nights and days to come
I feel what you perceive

reborn in the morning sun
and another day has begun
a chance for a different take

the light the tears the warmth the love
the memories and hope
to remind me once again
to hold on my friend
Track Name: Mariposita feat. Rico Pabon.flac
VERSE 1.
eye contact both feeling the spark
the way that we connecting it don’t happen a lot
I’m loving how you moving got my head going wow
afrodesiac you know I’m digging your style
and how we vibrating ain’t no splitting involved
I love it when you pop how you drop and pause
the laws of nature got my body standing salute
you smiling cuz you know it shaking feminine fruit
call it feminine fat now we back at her flat
short days long night market laundromat
make regular plans have regular ways
walk and hold hands said I love you just days
after meeting the feeling feeling so good ya’ll
then she left heartless without a word or a call
what a mighty way to fall I thought I was fly
so there ain’t no good in our goodbye

CHORUS
aint no good in our goodbye
(repeat)

so long so long no reason that she left
not even a word I could still taste her breath
left in the cold with a heart that don’t heal
I’m feeling all these women but never really feel
friends like chill find love settle down
my heart in my throat from the day she left town
sound of the voice something that I gotta chase
message on the voice mail something that I can’t erase
my heart won’t heal and brain won’t stop
your face in my mind your waist on top
it’s you day and night no matter time zone
a room full of women but feeling so alone
cuz a bone ain’t nothing it’s the heart that ladder
real pain not frontin it’s lost no matter
telling lies to myself and drink away the pain
only leading to the truth that I’m alone once again

CHORUS
aint no good in our goodbye
(repeat)
Track Name: Ital feat. Soia.flac
CHORUS
observe yourself to see if its them or you
enjoy yourself like that one day

observe yourself to see if its them or you
enjoy yourself like that one day

VERSE 1.
peace peace love be exactly where I’m at
lean back let the track blow race of the rats
what it be bob marley said word to the dread
what it’s all about high speed on the wrong route
life on the daily party with the homies
is shots and the weed best way to feed lonely
nights in the heaven days living hell
mama said keep faith no bail in jail
with my orange jump suit and my tough guy step
told my celly I’m from dena start asking bout sets
you a block crip Denver lane nah I don’t bang dude
always been a b-boy stayed away from gang feuds
and now I’m writing in the clouds
far away from home so alone in the crowds
rocking to the bass lines live without caution
remind me of them dance days back in mark’s Datsun
cars beat but the car got bang
big homies on the scene said do your thang
so I’m still on my cool Californian edition
where the cops kill kids and the daddy’s gone missing
and everywhere I go be exactly where I’m at
so no matter I go I’ma still feel that like this

CHORUS
observe yourself to see if its them or you
enjoy yourself like that one day

observe yourself to see if its them or you
enjoy yourself like that one day

can you imagine what this feel like reading with my son
far away from the ghetto and the guns
the sun shine through the field
gotta yield feel so divine
but the most beautiful be the mind
so what a crime what a loss
how the school make workers
story be the new tear jerkers
how to find purpose with the so called pimps and the police pushing
gotta find a way keep booking
nah not looking for the heaven search for the dollar
one day soda next day odwalla
who we gonna follow people lost hope
and everyone a prophet every time they post
high dose high times mind natural in the heavens
bodies in this hell till you master god lessons
god essence see the verse seem scattered
at night with the starts screaming money don’t matter
and it seems dreams ain’t so far the dark meet night
we gotta find a new way right
eyesight on my son bike wheeling through the park
reminiscing on my pop in his buick skylark
like this listening to the music like this

CHORUS
observe yourself to see if its them or you
enjoy yourself like that one day

observe yourself to see if its them or you
enjoy yourself like that one day
Track Name: How Long feat. Geoffrey Oryema.flac
VERSE 1.
yesterday I heard all the hope was gone
more liquor for the dead singing more sad songs
gone to the heavens too soon
flowers never had a chance to bloom
power make doom cop killers take away lives
we drop like flies never see the new dawn
word to Oscar Grant, word to Trayvon
slap on the wrist and they just move on
and the pistols drawn in another war torn country
to become another image on the T.V.
changing the channel can’t watch slaughter
no blood for oil, no child soldiers
hidden racism talking about borders
sex slave trade that be taking the daughters
how many laws to pass till we free from the pain
how many die till we really see change
how long

CHORUS
how long will it take

VERSE 2.
yesterday I heard all the hope was here
and the problems of the world so crystal clear
if we just come together would they disappear
love over hate every time walk with faith
seen the poorest on the planet with a smile on face
and the richest on the planet say we need more space
rat race with no just cause
say we naïve when we say stop wars
I just wanna breathe but the toxins more than the fresh air
stopping is easy if greedy would just care
but we here the people hold power
long as we standing its hope for the flowers
good earth too under Babylons’ towers
let seeds grow and the new days ours
in the meantime hope the spirit wont break
til change come how long will it take

CHORUS
how long will it take
Track Name: Who's God feat. Rita J.flac
VERSE 1.

on my knees as a seedling mastering my breathing
praying to Allah faith comes never leaving
no pork on my fork strictly fish on my dish
on Farrakans lap as a child reminisce
that was my granddad grandma would see this
tell me the stories and glory of jesus
he is the truth and the proof is the bible
road map to life and the key to survival
confusion moves in my direction
trying to figure my path to perfection
Buddhist bahai hindu maybe rasta
all with great teachings to master my chakras
lots of time and energy searching
books and conversation to lift up the curtain
I feel gods love but which gang is he a part of
the one who hang blacks in his name or made martyrs
killing daughters and sons for his glory
I know its extreme and not the whole story
many categories and ways of thought
till I looked one day and found god through art
heart racing I’m chasing love has begun
with my feet in the earth and my face in the sun
that’s god but can it be all so simple
no preacher no church no mosque no temple
but now everywhere that I go
I feel most high give a personal show
ecstatic and faithful thankful and humble
love to the front hate to the back crumble
and if that ain’t god I don’t know
what is you live gotta find your own flow
but yo gotta move through the fascade
and find a answer to the question who’s god

CHORUS

VERSE 2.
who’s god not an ipod I choose squads
ancestors lightworkers who illuminate my path
walking over rainbows
a little gold brass on my staff
supreme math god bodies in the bath
what you done overpower brass
destroy cash dusty flower lands
came from them sands particles in the band
I’m feeling grand man take the time to understand
the proof is in the tawny tan glow melanated flow
universal truth the great black mother oh
going off survival based on instincts
nurture my sphinx pose place prose
poetry in u-n-I versal language
not bound in fear mental anguish spiritual language
creates the need of a mystery god odd
misuse of power king james todd
smith feel good with the gift
that’s stronger lift your vibration
resist the temptation knowledge born got me open
mind meditation induce your elevation
reflect the light of the elohs
same shape as them zeroes
in my cycle circle again simply
take a look at yourself presence goose pimply
pinch me if you will I’m alive
my soul is the spirit you can hear it
through my lyrics proofs the mirror image
but just a mere appendage of something that’s greater
most high the creator goes by many names
different but the same the one covers all
makes the final call so who’s god ya’ll

CHORUS
Track Name: Fly feat. Crown City Rockers.flac
VERSE 1.

rise and shine the glory mine
lotta energy I’m feeling fine just watch
no clock just the beat in my body
running with the life on deck in effect mode
got my shorts mind is loose
sneakers on my feet pineapple juice
kinder in my pocket I’m kickin back
pull off my shirt pull down my hat
push up the volume and vibe the sound
with the sunlight crashing down
it’s the sensation that keeps me sane
mind on track stay on that train
got the feeling the feeling the good vibe feel
one in a million chance that I would exist at this time
these legs arms and mind
to open up my eyes and realize I’m divine
ain’t even talking money stop
it’s bigger than them stacks bigger than hip hop
or who got who or lost to
on my back in the sky with a rumi haiku
illuminate views whole world shining now
gear straight out of style
piles of loot low but I’m still fresh to death
as long as my lungs take a breath


CHORUS
can we fly
to the top of the sun now
can we fly
hang out in a cloud
can we fly
we talking elevation
can we fly
sing it on out loud
can we fly
when the new moon rises
can we fly
take it up get high
can we fly


I’ma feel the elation
and inner light shine till you see it outside
little money in the pocket but it really don’t matter
rock on till you feel the whole vibe
and it feel like magic
went so long not feeling what I feel right now
feel right now
and nobody ever stopping my shine again
friend or foe the flow so happening
can I fly

VERSE 2.

can I fly up in the morning
taking my time this life is so boring
boring this life be that’s just sometimes and
sometimes it’s just life that’s just what they say
no fake play play in the wind
alchemist watch me transcend and then
blend with the all that is was and will be
get with the passionate and then live free
everyone got the word that you’ll be
il’l take the criticism you’ll see
systematic like pass the peas and
gotta give a shout to my Japanese fam
held me down during the tsunami
came back home thugs think they grimey
guys show guns girls show punani
show it so much now it ain’t precious
shout if you paid ain’t on the guest list
everyone under the sun come on lets get
high to the top apex and peak
to my brothers sisters fam and freaks
lets fly

CHORUS
can we fly
to the top of the sun now
can we fly
hang out in a cloud
can we fly
we talking elevation
can we fly
sing it on out loud
can we fly
when the new moon rises
can we fly
take it up get high
can we fly
