Track Name: Out Of Control
Never takin' the time to feel alive,
Cos' you're out on the run.
You couldn't make it alone even if you tried.
Two hearts are better than none.

So just lay you down.
Don't make a sound.
I'll ease your soul,
When all of life seems out of control.

Every day is a new one, baby,
Every smile on its way.
Feel the rockin' and rollin', lady,
And bring it on out to play.#

Let me see that way you shake.
Let me see you gettin' down on the floor.
I'm in a trace from the shapes that you make
And I can see you see me wanting some more.

So just lay you down.
Don't make a sound.
I'll ease your soul,
When all of life seems out of control.

So just lay you down.
Don't make a sound.
I'll ease your soul,
When all of life seems out of control.

So just lay you down.
Don't make a sound.
I'll ease your soul,
When all of life seems out of control.
Track Name: Fly High
Down on you luck?
You know all is acceptance;
You gotta change on the spot,
Be reborn; your renaissance.
Gotta lay it aside,
Get it all off your conscience.
Go forget all the "should"s
And go live how you want.

So fly high
With that look in your eye
That says "hi" to every soul
That's got love on the mind
And let go of the flow
That's been bringing you low;
All the egos, the shallow desires, the libidos.
Take your time
To describe how it feels
To imbibe all the deals and the bribes that you paid
For a dream that wasn't worth all the pain,
For the fortune and fame and the stain on your brain
From living in their game.

Break outta the mould,
Cos' you're a wave in the ocean.
You can do what you want.
Go roll with the motion.
You're glittering gold,
Reflecting the moon,
Putting shame to the night
And not a moment too soon,

So fly high
With that look in your eye
That says "hi" to every soul
That's got love on the mind
And let go of the flow
That's been bringing you low;
All the egos, the shallow desires, the libidos.
Take your time
To describe how it feels
To imbibe all the deals and the bribes that you paid
For a dream that wasn't worth all the pain,
For the fortune and fame and the stain on your brain
From living in their game.

So fly high
With that look in your eye
That says "hi" to every soul
That's got love on the mind
And let go of the flow
That's been bringing you low;
All the egos, the shallow desires, the libidos.
Take your time
To describe how it feels
To imbibe all the deals and the bribes that you paid
For a dream that wasn't worth all the pain,
For the fortune and fame and the stain on your brain
From living in their game.
Track Name: In My Dreams
Ten years down the line,
I still got my mind workin' in overtime
To reckon up why it all went to pieces
When she said I misread the signs that we were ceasin'.
And now I still can't figure it out,
This lingering doubt. I find myself
Chickening out a bit,
Yet I'm still right down in the thick of it
And sundown is only the start of it.

I still see you in my dreams.
I still see you in my dreams.
Like a ghost that follows me,
I still see you in my dreams.

I think I misunderstand Mr. Sandman,
Abandoning me out in this wasteland
Of second-hand visions of division and indecision.
Hearts get close; for the most part, there'll be collisions.
The American Dream is still a prevalent theme
In these incredible scenes, and thought it's not what it seems
What I mean to say is, it's routine for players,
But when love is involved you'll see how different our game is.

Hand in hand like old lovers.
Country lanes painted in a hundred colours.
Sultry days hazy in the heart of summer,
As my head hits the bed underneath the covers.

I still see you in my dreams.
I still see you in my dreams.
Like a ghost that follows me,
I still see you in my dreams.

I still see you in my dreams.
I still see you in my dreams.
Like a ghost that follows me,
I still see you in my dreams.
Track Name: Hard Times
Hey, allow me to introduce myself:
I got a sound reproduced by no one else.
On this ground's where I lay beats, eat, sleep, rap, repeat,
Taking inspiration from highways or backstreets.
I ain't tryin' to be the next Beethoven,
I told 'em then plugged in the subs just to show them
I'm colder than a Moscow winter; I'm frozen.
This show's on the road. It don't stop, it just goes on.

I ain't predisposed to political insults.
My pencil's just intent on writing **** that's suspenseful.
End of. So don't call the lyrical cops,
Just keep yourself calm and wait for the drop.
And if you're thinking, "who's this Brit with an accent?",
Is it so bad if I can spit with a passion?
It ain't about fashion; no pics on the Cloud.
Ain't about my face, just droppin' the bass, loud.

Forget about the fortune.
Forget about the fame.
Forget about the hard times, baby,
But don't forget my name.

Listen up 'cos there's more on my mind.
Got more axes to grind than most organised crime
And my rhymes are so streamlined, Shakespeare and Drake combined.
Like Orinoco I make hits from the **** that I find.
And instead in case you're feelin' misled,
I got a head full of lyrics so fine that they're purebred.
Like Judge Dredd, ever wearing a mask, said,
Stick to the lyrical law or your *ss is dead.

Forget about the fortune.
Forget about the fame.
Forget about the hard times, baby,
But don't forget my name.

Forget about the fortune.
Forget about the fame.
Forget about the hard times, baby,
But don't forget my name.

Forget about the fortune.
Forget about the fame.
Forget about the hard times, baby,
But don't forget my name.
Track Name: Sun In Squares (Club Mix)
Tell me I got this feelin' right
That she's gone, she's left, she's fresh outta sight.
She was the ghost that shapes my days
As I escape this phase and rewind and erase
And get a brand new taste and a lovin' direction,
Try to abandon my predilection
For retrospection, self-lie detection,
But I'm still awaiting re-education.

Cos' you still got me reelin'
And I hope you know the feelin'

Of seein' the sun in squares,
Of feelin' the moonlight flare.
Find love out in the cold somewhere.
It ain't so rare,
But I just don't dare no more.

Now I'm back and I'm sensin' the hate,
All the new things I can't assimilate.
I'm lost on a date, cos' the passion's escaped.
My mind is a trap but my soul is the bait,
But it's not too late to be dealin' with it.
I'm a cynic but I'm in it for the truth I can get.
All the cool girls, cute girls I've ever met
Know just how it's done, straight up and legit.

But you still got me reelin'
And I hope you know the feelin'

Of seein' the sun in squares,
Of feelin' the moonlight flare.
Find love out in the cold somewhere.
It ain't so rare,
But I just don't dare no more.

Now you're gone and regret's biting me deep
And I'm yearning on a learning curve that's too steep.
I've got no sense of where I'm gonna go.
Too slow for the flow of life I used to know.
All the while the world still spins on its axis.
All along I want you right here on my mattress.
I feel like I'm past it; it was fun while it lasted,
And life like light's moving faster and faster.

But you still got me reelin'
And I hope you know the feelin'

Of seein' the sun in squares,
Of feelin' the moonlight flare.
Find love out in the cold somewhere.
It ain't so rare,
But I don't dare.
Seein' the sun in squares,
Of feelin' the moonlight flare.
Find love out in the cold somewhere.
It ain't so rare,
But I just don't dare no more.
Track Name: Between Sorrow & Reality
Why do I feel
Like a man who ain't real,
Like a ghost of a shell
Who first and foremost needs help?
Take a look at the time;
It's too late for my dreams
But too soon to be feelin'
What I've know all the while.

Who's really electric,
Cos' I'm feelin' didactic?
But when I think I've cracked it,
I find my gold's made of plastic.
Do you see where I come from?
Over yonder and then some
Like an alien life-form that takes fiction by storm.

Between sorrow and reality.
Between me and who I wanna be.
Between love and what you want from me.

Do you know what I'm sayin'
Bout these like situations?
Like the song that I'm playing
That's causing pupil dilation,
But I don't want to call it
'Cause I feel it's my calling
To bring joy to us all with
These simple enthralling
Beats that I repeat all the time.
What I seek is a rhyme;
Words to fit all of it
And a sense that it's mine.
So the tension is fine;
This expression's designed
For self-defence of the mind.

Between sorrow and reality.
Between me and who I wanna be.
Between love and what you want from me.
Track Name: Red & Golden Fire
The open fire dances red and gold.
The rain pours fresh and rich and cold.
A sparkling laugh and a shining smile
Echo in my mind all the while.

Lift up your head and feel that sun
And taste the youth that seemed long gone,
As God gives back all we desire
As dancing,
Dancing red and golden fire.

Distant fields roll on and on
Like days that pass and still to come.
Green and cool, they beckon me in,
Refresh my soul beneath my skin.

Lift up your head and feel that sun
And taste the youth that seemed long gone,
As God gives back all we desire
As dancing,
Dancing red and golden fire.

Lift up your head and feel that sun
And taste the youth that seemed long gone,
As God gives back all we desire
As dancing,
Dancing red and golden fire.

Lift up your head and feel that sun
And taste the youth that seemed long gone,
As God gives back all we desire
As dancing,
Dancing red and golden fire.
Track Name: Lie, Dreamers, Lie
Tell me, do you ever sleep with lights on,
Long gone, dreaming by the rivers of Babylon?
The season's blue skies drawn in crayon,
You play as the day dawns on the horizon.

Lie, dreamers, lie.
Lie, dreamers, lie,
By day or by night.

Tell me, do you fly high on the sea breeze
With pure ease, sail over mountains as you please?
Pastel skies break fast into rough seas.
The sunbeam's line casts down as the light flees.

Tell me, do you see visions of time flown,
Loves lost, old boss, sorrows and chances blown?
Cold moss grows thick on a rolling stone.
Highs fall quick as the fickle dice are thrown.

Lie, dreamers, lie.
Lie, dreamers, lie,
By day or by night.

Lie, dreamers, lie.
Lie, dreamers, lie,
By day or by night.
Track Name: Before I've Said Hello
Hey, I just wanted to say
How cute you look
Sippin' from your cup
Readin' a good book.
Friday night
I got a reservation at a table.
Think I might
Enjoy your conversation
If you think you're able.

Move in?
You might be jumpin' the gun
But my heart's won.
I can't imagine bein' with anyone
Else. Marry me.
Why not?
I'm matching up to you
And in the meantime girl
We got a lot of catchin' up to do.

Still this conversation gets me down,
Cos' my imagination's running round
In circles thinking how it might all go.
I've loved and lost before I've said hello,
Before I've said hello.

Yeah, I agree.
This isn't working out for me
Or you. A review of us
Is now well overdue.
It's been fun,
However we're not the one
For each other and maybe
We should never have ever got together.
Now it's been six months
Since we parted
And I'm sat in the small town cafe
Back where this all started.
I see a girl sat across the room
Meets my eyes, but I'm wiser
Than before. Or am I?

Still this conversation gets me down,
Cos' my imagination's running round
In circles thinking how it might all go.
I've loved and lost before I've said hello,
Before I've said hello.

Still this conversation gets me down,
Cos' my imagination's running round
In circles thinking how it might all go.
I've loved and lost before I've said hello,
Before I've said hello.
Track Name: Let The Music Set You Free
Feel the funk, feel the beat in your mind.
See the old folks dance to hip-hop of the old kind.
I don't mind if it's hard to unwind;
It's all fine, 'cause I got this rhythm to get by.
So follow me down this yellow brick road
And carry your load to the end of the rainbow and its pot of gold.
We gotta roll. We can't stop or the rot takes hold.
It takes a lotta cojones to make your goal.

So let the music set you free.
Let the music set you free.
Leave it all and follow me.
Let the music set you free.

Tell me, girl, are feelin' me know
That you know how I flow with rhythm? Are you gettin' down?
How low can I go to? Hear the bass, it'll show ya,
And on that note, I'll show you my boat maybe you can float her.
So bring it all onto the dance floor.
We can soar with the four on the floor that you've been looking for.
Rich or poor; it don't matter with this groove in store
So I'll prove we can move until the last encore.

So let the music set you free.
Let the music set you free.
Leave it all and follow me.
Let the music set you free.
