Track Name: fille noire (intro)
Some times I feel ambivalent
Other days indifferent
Just trying to see the bigger picture and
Talk instead of listening
I've got the best intentions though
Not twitter mentions no
My opinion never lacks proper diction
So Imma sip a lil tea when I smoke that smoke
And see the universe and the art it wrote
My heart it spoke the love I know
Calmer times take note
Momma taught not to tell bad jokes
And this far I've managed to see both coasts
And still
Some times I feel ambivalent
Other days indifferent
Just trying to see the bigger picture and
Talk instead of listening
And this energy hums
Like a beating drum
Know who you are, fille noire
Track Name: chemistry ft the melman
Your eyes entwined with the skies
Reveling nights and this dangerous bind I'm in
Your heart as you are in mine
Not meager in size nor eager with pride
Cause darling

I see a turnaround
And you fill my head with doubts
Oh but this energy between you and me
And the beauty it speaks is chemistry
So don't let me down no darling don't let me down
I won't let you down darling

Your smile like a shadowy crook
Quick to get off the hook with all the lives that you took
I'm dying
To see what lies underneath all this age old debris
The view's gotten hazy for me cause darling

I see a turnaround
And you fill my head with doubts
Oh but this energy between you and me
And the beauty it speaks is chemistry
So don't let me down no darling don't let me down
I won't let you down darling

The Melman:
Your mind like a garden in spring
Full of colourful things
Soothe my eyes scratch my limbs
If I go somewhere
Where the trail disappears
And I’m standing in a field
But I’m underneath your shield
Cause darling

I feel a turnaround
Now you are somebody I can’t do without
oh and this energy between you and me
and the beauty it speaks is chemistry
I won’t let you down
no I won't let you down
Coz you won’t let me down darling
Track Name: out of sight, out of mind
What if you're truly meant to dream?
live and breathe these things you've been given.
What if your plans are so naive
you misconceive this life and its intentions?

You stay awake to sleep
Cause they say that's your reality
You make no time for things
that don't make up a grander scheme
or chasing after things
that don't make up the life you need
you're bursting at the seam
cause you're already gone lost in your wrongs

you don't want to hurt nobody
you just want to love yourself better
what you search for you just might find
or simply learn from all this bad weather
and those thoughts of wasted time
seem farfetched when things start to get better
oh oh oh cause it's out of sight, out of mind

What if what you create and believe
this constant poetry is a symptom of cognition?
What if this life ain’t all it seems?
Our beliefs are just a part of this prison, we live in.

You stay awake to sleep
Cause they say that's your reality
You make no time for things
that don't make up a grander scheme
or chasing after things
that don't make up the life you need
you're bursting at the seam
cause you're already gone lost in your wrongs

you don't want to hurt nobody
you just want to love yourself better
what you search for you just might find
or simply learn from all this bad weather
and those thoughts of wasted time
seem farfetched when things start to get better
oh oh oh it's out of sight, out of mind

and this rhyme is for those less fortunate
who had a dream but never got to feel the force of it
through the course of it is ups and downs
what's important is
you love yourself and everyone else
and this wealth,
comes with the pride of good health
despite the hand you've been dealt
times you felt like giving up on yourself
just watch and bear witness
to the items on your wish list
spoken into existence
by a singer with the sickest flow
but you should already know
out of sight, out of mind
shouldn't matter no more
like the pieces to the puzzle
start to change on their own
it's kinda crazy I know
don't believe me I'll show you

you don't want to hurt nobody
you just want to love yourself better
what you search for you just might find
or simply learn from all this bad weather
and those thoughts of wasted time
seem farfetched when things start to get better
oh oh oh cause it's out of sight, out of mind

I don't want to hurt nobody
I just want to love myself better
what I've searched for all my life
appeared after all this bad weather
and those thoughts of wasted time
are long gone and now I feel better
oh oh oh cause it's out of sight, out of mind
Track Name: tiny ships
Sunny days drift away
It’s been so long since I’ve seen one
And I dream when I’m awake
to keep track of my day
to keep track of the days you’ve been away

And I been dreamin tonight
Wishing that I could breath you in
Touch your skin
And I been dreamin cause I’ve
Been hoping that I will see you again
When your ship gets in
When your ship gets in

I watched you float away
With my heart attached to a string
Like a kite it sailed behind you
And at the end of the day
when the sun met the sea
all I saw were tiny ships in the horizon

And I’ll be dreamin tonight
Wishing that I could breath you in
Touch your skin
And I’ll be dreamin cause I’m
still hoping that I will see you again
When your ship gets in
When your ship gets in
