about

I wrote this song after spending a magical week in the Kalalau Valley, a remote incredibly beautiful place on Kauai, Hawaii. The hook for the song was inspired by the movie, Brother Sun, Sister Moon a film that greatly impacted me as a kid. The experience in Kalalau felt like I was in a very ancient time and each action, word, deed had a major impact on the world around me... The reminder to slow down, take time, do what you do well and let your life grow purely... Enjoy!

lyrics

To all the lost souls and those in high roles
Beware when I come near for fear
Forms In the minds of the unclear
And those with lost cause
Like the wizard of Oz
Its all-mad front spark up the blunt and get faded
Driving in the pimp car intoxicated
Were all slated to be frustrated all eyes jaded
Worldwide demonstrated

The foggy mirror ain’t getting no clearer
What’s the cost for all the souls we’ve lost
It’s the price we’ve paid to be slaved and engraved
With subliminal messages of hate and rage
Sometimes I feel like the words on a page
Of a book that was never written

If you want to live life free
Take your time go slowly
Do few things, but do them well
Heart felt works grow purely

We’re doing to much, y’all we’re loosing touch

Free, free, free your mind
Untangle from the mass consumption twine
Shop tell you drop and the whole nine
Tommy hill figure and Calvin Klein
Just a few who dine on the youth in there prime
I’ve spent a lot cash on my design
For a little bit of face warn out with time
Time,time, check this rhyme...
Now why is it all about your image and how you look
Not about the visions and the path you took
Or your dreams and values lost in a book
Shook from a dream caught by Captain Hook
When will the shell crack when shell we break free
When will we melt the chins of this slavery?

If you want to live life free
Take your time go slowly
Do few things, but do them well
Heart felt works grow purely

If you want to live life free
Take your time go slowly
Say few things, but say them well
Heart felt words grow purely

One step at a time, one breath at a time
With you in my heart I know I will survive
One step at a time, one breath at a time
With you by my side I know I will survive
One step at a time, one breath at a time
With you as my guide I know I will survive

If you want to live life free…

To much ya’ll we’re loosing touch…
Loosing touch, ya’ll we’re losing touch
