Track Name: Hi, This Is New
Check,
I was walking along, headphones on,
Instrumental playing, thinking of new songs,
I could dae, but as it played,
I question my motive,
And what I've been saying on tracks I didn't notice,
It might been perceived that I'd hope to achieve,
Something else or myself was lying to me,
Thought I moved in stealth,
But said shhh to many,
Well, at least it's freedom of speech
And if I proved nothing I proved I could do that
So I didn't write a track as I walked on that path,
A pressed pause...
And I question that, question rap,
Question; questions, and more came back,
And back at the lab where I mastered speech,
With padded walls took the pad and wrote what's me,
Thought what I want to be, Or rather just see me,
That walk I forgot, but here's where you join me.
(And I'm Free).

Check (SOS),
Not one for the heads, not one for the rap fans,
This ones, for ones, that wonder when at one with oneself,
Hell, that’s my metal medication
To stop myself dwelling on every situation, I was placed in,
Instead of pacing thinking of frustration,
I'll start thinking it's amazing adding that to the equation,
Heaven, ain’t a place on earth,
It’s a place in your mind I explore through verse,
Sick of seeing underachieving I’m believing in more,
And that’s the reason that I sit and writing along to these chords,
Switching off the TV cause who gets applause,
Is only those that are blinding and trapped in its jaws,
Lost cause and because you watch they make billions,
An unknown example we set for our children,
So, no aggression of jokes,
And this ain’t rap, this is something I wrote,
(With a little hope).
Track Name: All You Need Is
The journey starts off when you open your third eye,
Human form came when came out my dad's one,
Life is a wonder, I wonder if we had none,
Would we ever die or exist everlasting?
Have we? Can we? Something I can't say,
But can question thoughts, astronauts in our own way,
Own days, visualize forth, come on mate,
Being negative only plays with the morns fate,
(Ha), Yeah, hold that thought,
Maybe looking for a better tomorrow is all I got,
See, what I've got and not what I want,
Top of the brain no clue but the subconscious thought,
Knows more than I do, so I don't have to,
If you follow heart see it won't go past you,
I'm glad to admit sometimes times are ****
But I learned what I needed to know, so that's it

All you need is love,
Sometimes that seems kind of awkward,
But who am I to judge,
I guess I just look to the future [X2]

Yo, I live my life like everyone else,
A lot of the time I just go and do what I'm telt,
I work well, pay tax, buy brands they sell,
But I least I notice this is probably hell,
Well, it wasn't, but what it became,
Blame profit driven people never wanting the change,
Everyday stays the same and we stay in our place,
I guess they came first in the human race,
But wait, It's all an illusion,
The more we think of them, the more we be losing,
That gives them power, the power we have you can,
Feed an devour or fight and make a movement,
Occupy, your own space and time,
They want you to hurt, and lack all pride,
Because all that's inside and all you confide,
Is all that we see on the outside; life

All you need is love,
Sometimes that seems kind of awkward,
But who am I to judge,
I guess I just look to the future [X2]

Yo, hail Satan, no wait - Saturn,
Planets burn bright until they fall into atoms,
And you might neglect, call it Pluto effect,
And we'll all forget, all the things that we've said,
But if not, then I'll talk and get in your heads,
And let my view clear out all the darkness and depths,
The conversation goes grows know when to accept,
That really I'm you, what you think is you get,
Truman show, but this is your life,
And this is mine, I hide behind mics,
What I do (what?), Is something I like,
But it’s not about me (yeah for once in my life),
It's about moving forward, since tape recorders,
Net crosses borders, we share thoughts,
Ideas, no genre,
Stop drawing lines, I've said mine, I'm honoured

All you need is love,
Sometimes that seems kind of awkward,
But who am I to judge,
I guess I just look to the future [X2]
Track Name: Just a Theory
The Earth is 4 & a half billion years old,
Yeah, if you believe in time...
Today I'm 26/5, so that's the length of mine,
This noise you hear in the form of a sound wave,
Is some thoughts a find, it's in my mind, with rhymes,
Please step inside [x2]

Hey, how are you? I made an EP,
It's got raps from me, plus Sea Bass beats
It's, a little different see I hope to achieve
And believe a little more in myself, Please,
Take the time to unwind with rhymes
And maybe find peace of mind with a little of mine
Piece together some peace, Hotep to the blind,
Open up Horus eye, Bindi, and find,
Energy from the chakras relaxes catches
Spreads good vibes, outside to masses,
No, no masses, no church slash classes,
Only Educate - in its place - inner faith
Haste, is not what is needed,
Take a little time to sit back and see it,
Scholars teach this, teach that, read back,
But make up your own mind, there's no facts.

The Big Bang (Is just a theory)
Evolution (Is just a theory)
Cosmic Expansion (just a theory)
Newton's Law (Is just a theory)
Planetary Motion (Just a theory)
Heisenberg's Principle (Just a theory)
Collective consciousness (Just a theory)
All that we're told (Is just a theory)

The Earth ain’t flat, it's not round also
Its egg shaded in fact, and possibly hollow,
You might think that, that my brain is gone though
And my own view isn't one to follow,
And that's why, you should make up your own mind
Life's make up is mostly made up,
Companies make stuff, that’s enslaving our own kind
A child made your shoes, and just added a brand sign,
No pride, and they've none of their own,
Owned in slave labour, on the factory floor,
Saw a girl in labour on the factory floor,
Years later - kid walks in factory door,
Sore, hands, legs and feet,
Swore a won’t complain cause a don't have these
And even if my limbs felt used and weak,
I still won’t complain (cause some don't have these)

The Big Bang (Is just a theory)
Evolution (Is just a theory)
Cosmic Expansion (just a theory)
Newton's Law (Is just a theory)
Planetary Motion (Just a theory)
Heisenberg's Principle (Just a theory)
Collective consciousness (Just a theory)
All that we're told (Is just a theory)

I'm not saying I don't believe them
(That would be stupid)

I'm just saying, I don't fully accept it
(Why, why should I?)

That that's it
(There's much more to life than that, and that's fact)
Track Name: Let's Funk This
Now what you hear is not a test,
I'm rapping to the beat not to impress,
I try to express and invest in text,
And perplex those minds I find with stress,
Woooosaaaa people hair, like Medusa,
Slither all up in your face but won’t move you,
Stone man, last long like a stone stand,
Got to aim high, even Jesus was stoned man,
'Yeshua ben Yosef',
His real name, in case you didn't notice,
Religion should teach like love and hope it's,
Kind of changed now we think of explosives,
(Boom) A suicide bomber, extremist, follower,
Coming up in coroners, no heaven for the mortar'ers
Just hell in the corridors,
Of White House, parliament, ideals thrown onto us,

Set your alarm it's time to wake up,
We're stuck in the middle of drivel and all judge,
Truth is a riddle but simple it shows up,
We all just look, listen, learn, touch,
Hurt, shows we fail so much,
Since birth, manipulated on earth,
We, lost, touch

I want change, I'm not talking pennies,
Raised in a system that made us all enemies,
Placed in a group to divide I'm telling you,
Together we'd be strong (stronger than this anyway),
If you’re different, like for instance,
Every fingerprint in entire existence,
Why do we choose to feel blue and distant?
When really I'm you, you’re me, no difference,
Imprint, made in the path of life,
Is like, leaving your mark on the page you write,
You’re right to do that, and express your plight,
Or fight for a life you like it's in sight,
(Hold tight) like the hug from a loved one,
Light shines bright, darkness is a punk son,
Chuck them ones saying tons of bad stuff,
It's our turn, us humans, we had enough
(It's our turn, us people, we had enough)

Set your alarm it's time to wake up,
We're stuck in the middle of drivel and all judge,
Truth is a riddle but simple it shows up,
We all just look, listen, learn, touch,
Hurt, shows we fail so much,
Since birth, manipulated on earth,
We, lost, touch

In the thirtieth year, fifth day, fourth month,
On the Khabur River Ezekiel's looks up,
What can't be described, brushed aside, is thus:
Whirlwind portal opens broken sky in the North,
And what descends, isn't men but shaped in the like,
On a craft, from a path, of the heavens at night,
But what he writes from his sight, ain't God it might,
Better help describe; meeting Alien life,
The Bible is science,
It's all metaphor and a mix of lying,
It's also based on many books before it,
Tarot cards, hieroglyphics, mixed up and broken,
Choking on lies and deceitful cancer,
Misinformation from the slave race masters,
Temple of Abydos, is one with answers,
Helicopter carved in spaceship; Futurama,

Set your alarm it's time to wake up,
We're stuck in the middle of drivel and all judge,
Truth is a riddle but simple it shows up,
We all just look, listen, learn, touch,
Hurt, shows we fail so much,
Since birth, manipulated on earth,
We, lost, touch
Track Name: City of Stone
Check, Auld Reekie...

I was raised in a city made of stone,
Castle stands tall over all that we know,
But flying on top, ain't the flag of our home,
Red & blue shows that we're owned by the Throne,
I wanna shout out Declaration of Arbroath,
Stand on my sovereign, raise a glass toast,
Fill up a drab, brag, and I boast,
Proud to be a Scot in this land of our own,
Bone, to pick with government henchmen,
Waiting on the day that we hold referendum,
Maybe then ken, we could all stop pretending,
That we're all drunks getting high on the heroin,
We don't need a hero or heroine,
Just need a vote, to make things better then,
Next step pride, feel no remorse,
Glasgow to Edinburgh, Athens of the North

Tourists walk around our town looking up,
Admiring the architecture we don't notice much,
We keep our head down but soon it won’t hurt,
To try and make a change stop gazing at the dirt,
It's tough, but it could be worse,
We stay in a tolerant place with much love,
Amazed at the way it's portrayed and that sucks,
When the media's feeding you a bunch of words,
That's false talk, don't get caught,
Ironically the net giving freedom of thought,
So cast out, man it feels good,
To see so many people feeling like you,
Bran new, and the night is young,
As is dawns on the daughters and belligerent sons,
Of Scotland, SOS, save our souls, your soul is blessed

I'm so lucky to be born here,
What a city...
Track Name: Then There's This..
I saw the Ica Stones, The Baghdad Battery,
The Coso Artifact, I back tracked gradually,
Antikythera Mechanism, nope, no fantasy,
And all these things made me question my sanity,
The Klerksdorp Spheres, the Voynich Manuscript,
The Dropas, Bayan-Kara and some Russian scientists,
Stuff I thought I knew, started to slide..
Like the Pyramid of Gaza really has 8 sides?
Damn, history is useless, or looping,
Does that explain the Fisher Canyon shoe print?
I'm looking for truth and, common sense a nuisance,
Can't make up my mind so inside it's confusion,
But, that's a good thing really,
Admitting I know nothing is probably a smart thing,
Admission on the subject,
Or to dodge it all on purpose,
Would put me in a box and that's not how I live,
(Yeah)

So I don't care if you hate (nah),
That's not a thing that I'm going dae (no way),
And I don't care what they say (hell no),
Long as I act me I'm OK (that's right),
And I don't think there's a fate (nah),
So I'll just go and find my way (I will),
And all I care is I take (that's right),
Attention, do what my heart says...

Check,
These four flusher mother-truckers,
Shipping ships to one n other,
Business gifts and giving brothers,
Of their secret hidden culture,
Better deals than average punters,
With handshakes to take you further,
In a game of conquer plunder, in a market we're all under,
I see us suffer, they count money in their bunker,
It don't matter to elite when they shielded from the hunger,
A 5 star meal when they selling you McD's
Sponsor sport events like athletes eat grease,
Please, I'm sick of adverts and gimmicks,
But I'll get to that in like roughly a minute,
Strip it, I'm taking the paper off the walls,
The fake facade they placed to place you in a place y'all,
An accent, race, sex or age,
Sexual preference, belief, the wage they pay,
A class, I'll pass, to be free mate,
I'll look at everyone all the same...
(Yeah)

So I don't care if you hate (nah),
That's not a thing that I'm going dae (no way),
And I don't care what they say (hell no),
Long as I act me I'm OK (that's right),
And I don't think there's a fate (nah),
So I'll just go and find my way (I will),
And all I care is I take (that's right),
Attention, do what my heart says...

Third verse, what's left?
Man I don't even want to rhyme,
This ain't an advert for me,
Speaking of adverts...
Join the Army, and be the best,
Or come home in a box, or with no legs,
L'Oréal, because your worth it,
Point out flaws, make you feel worthless,
So what's NEXT? Mind the GAP,
They missed the fact, a little kid made that,
Designer wear, I just don't care...
I really don't,
Currency value low, gold price rising,
So promoting cash for gold is hardly surprising,
A payday loan, Wonga's no logic,
They give you cash but you’re in their pocket
(Yeah)

So I don't care if you hate (nah),
That's not a thing that I'm going dae (no way),
And I don't care what they say (hell no),
Long as I act me I'm OK (that's right),
And I don't think there's a fate (nah),
So I'll just go and find my way (I will),
And all I care is I take (that's right),
Attention, do what my heart says
Track Name: Brain & Audio Waves
If we didn't have emotion, then I'd be glad,
If 'glad' can be felt without emotion to have.
I'm always feeling sad or snap and go raj,
I'd be a better person if it's left in the past.
If I was made of stone then the stones they throw,
Would just bounce off me and they'd make no holes.
In my glass home, in-which I feel alone,
Is where I make music, in hope that I grow,
But, it's not as easy as that,
And I feel my emotions are a balancing act
Tiresome chat, falling back, just telling the facts,
Misinterpreted, hated, for faking this part,
Try to make you happy, but causing you pain
Try and stay out your way, but its doing the same
Try as I might, the mic to this day,
Has been an outlet, a catalyst for change

Check (SOS),
I'm an emotional guy, my emotions run high,
I get stressed, get vexed, and I shout to the sky,
I get pissed, get stoned, else I'd probably cry,
Cause I don't know what to do with this time before I die,
I, need positive thinking,
And people round me to be supportive by listening,
I don't need money, fame or superstition,
I don't need worries and name-calling persistent,
Wishing on a star, no replay,
Its light-years away, so it's already died,
But I won't inside, I will find pride,
I will find a reason to believe in the rise,
Of people, us, without the control,
Without being persuaded that I'm always below,
I will stand up, my story needs told,
But this is chapter one, there's a lot to go

Rising from horizon, new sun with no disguise,
One turned from the angry and burn he held inside,
He yearned to be heard deserved a little pride,
But focused on the negative so got it in reply,
I was that son that fell but no demise,
Clipped my own wings to aim for better skies,
Reborn in joint ashes and empty drink glasses,
And as it all passes, now I'm ready to fly (high),
Not aiming for a star, a see the shooting ones,
Rather hear it in their bars,
Claiming what they are, say it then believe it,
Becomes a part of them now it's taken all their freedom,
Trapped in brain cells or physical jails,
Buying physical things in a virtual hell,
No Call of Duty, kids will shoot you,
With guns government's sells,
And sheep-le join the army, thinking it helps

And I'm not blaming X-Box,
But those games got a rating,
Not trying to preach, I'm not your parent,
But when you play PlayStation,
Remember it's not training,
GTA, COD, what's your children playing?
Just saying
Track Name: Chin Up, Be Proud
You're amazing,
Yo it's funny, how you hanging your head,
Walking streets like a zombie, kind of half dead
When the time is here, for you to be heard,
You work you put in, work in out, no stress,
I appreciate your finding times tough, but hold up,
Whole damn world is feeling all the same bruv,
Best luck to you if you feel a little blue but,
I'm proud of you, and what you've been through,
Never give up, single mums on the doe,
Still putting kids first, real love on show
Visiting your Grandma before she goes,
Little things like that make a brighter soul,
You know, it's told, that you are your own God,
And life is what you make it so face it it's your job
To stand up, hold your head high, and know what,
I'm proud what you made for yourself, good work

You got to start like thinking more positive,
Honest it's, hard seeing you falling in bits,
Come on get over it,
Pick yourself up and get on with it,
Your better than this, and I know, you know that kid
Never quit, quitting on that means yourself,
Forget wealth, hell, that's the devil on shelves,
The barcode code bro is like 666,
So when you're buying some gifts, please think of this:
A hug might be, what they seek and need,
I hi how are you? Instead of that greed,
I gesture of good will, a helping hand,
A pat on the back, a hey, 'you the man',
Can, you understand, ban, the hating man
I'm, a basic man, but I, can face it and,
I, will try my best, since I've nothing left,
Except, every opportunity

(Keep your chin up)
(That's right)

If I have regrets it will be what I did,
Never what I left,
What you don't do can haunt you,
Common sense, so next step take a guess,
And go with your heart, hell, your head's a mess,
So take a chance, the joker out the pack,
Could be anything else depending on that game that's
Played today, so take at face value risk,
Missing the suttle knowledge when played with real wit,
So, shuffle the deck, get set, its marked go,
So-so hands can't stand with those in control,
But maybe the illusion, is there to be broken,
And one way to do that is to be outspoken,
And if you're wrong, be corrected,
But it's only up to you to truly accept it,
If you feel strong, then go on relentless,
The universe is small, don't feel neglected
Track Name: We Can Move On
Uh, Yeah,
Auld Reekie mucka,

(Forgive, forget, it won't happen)
I think too much, listen to this stuff...

Forgive, forget, it won't happen,
So just accept - Things can change,
So let's not dwell on mistakes [x2]

Yo, I'm one for over-thinking,
Then over-drinking,
And on top of that, I smoke far too much,
It's not a good balance,
When you’re down on your luck,
So I put on this mask,
So the people won’t judge,
And cover up most of the things that I want to say,
In other words, I took, expression way,
And that at the end of the day,
Is just rap, and not a song mate,

So, maybe I should call my friends,
(Maybe that would help me),
And maybe, that's all that I need

Forgive, forget, it won't happen,
So just accept - Things can change,
So let's not dwell on mistakes [x2]

Experience is a word for mistakes we've made,
A way to explain previous pain or rage,
That all seems silly when you look back today,
But don't laugh at the past,
Embrace the change that some make,
That there is no fate,
Imagination creates shapes reality breaks,
When emotion takes over in the form of a wave,
Not visual or viable in various place,
We vacate the vicinity of violence and greed,
Stop greeting over vast and unaccountable sheep,
And corporate slaughter is in order,
Every border is weak,
Only weak being weak let's other achieve,

But that's not you, no,
And that's not we,
I know you agree,
You know that we're free,
And that's all that we seek...

And all that holds me back is me,

Peace
