Track Name: Lo que soy
Meryem
heyyyaaaa
The sky knows how high my wings can fly
Gaia knows how deep roots run underground
Like a Phoenix rising back’ from my fire
Water my mind N grow it till it flowers

Shuttin’ down allyall opinions
vision trumps’ all ah’ your billions
Shinin’ like One n million
VVS Diamonds drippin’ from
My cranium
Busy gettin’ in allignement
Fuck your Temporary hyyype
Im trendin’ way beyond this life
Lightin’ it up with my Spiritual guides

CHORUS:


Lou Piensa
Voy con el tiempo que nadie espera /
Tu cherchais l'espace qu'il te fallait : il est là ! /
See that? Thats where all the roads will lead at /
Ask an old soul «where the beat at?» (Beat at !) /
Plug in the mics for some feedback! (feedback !)
All of us here, we agree that/ (we that!)
We got alot people breathing again when reaching the spots that meet at /
So letting the wind blow and letting the past go and fastfowarding to the now /
Settin the tone for the next generation, embracing a way to be proud /
Tactique de survie, technique et pratique, dis-moi, tu veux parler sur qui? /
On est dans la pure vie, viste'? Avispado como siempre, oiste'? /
Pa' tu que piensas que el tiempo es lento / Que te cuento? Saca tu cuenta
Espera tu momento, que cambie el viento, envuentalmente la vida paga de vuelta /

GUIDES
Woy!!!
You ready, you ready?
It’s comin’, it’s coming
Some Obia Spirit
You frontin, you frontin?
Cyan wait to believe it, cuz you goin’ believe it
It hit you, you feel it
Yuh dead pon di ground
We watchin yuh, watchin’ yuh
We watch fi yuh, watch fi yuh
They cross yuh, we block fi yuh
Now mash up di place!
Heh!
Tek weh yuh need
But nah eat too much
Say weh yuh see but nah preach too much
Yuh runnin’ to somethin’
No gunnin’ for not’in
Dem call yuh must answerin’
Til di line cut off!!!!

Waahli
Pas pouse'l kitel roule konsa
kote'm soti mon che ou pa ta kwè
yo mande'm si 'm songe mwen di'
lè timoun ou pat te vlé okupe’ m
kounya pi fokus passé yon toto
Mwen ta renmen pou'm ta tounen na tem
mai jodi’a waahli blye ca,
pa kite' bagay ca pren'n non k
li té met la, lit te lo bo'
bay li importance epis la kraze'
se pou positif, pou ka ret pi fo
m’pa pointe dwet mwen pas gen temp
moun ka palé mè sé ven yap baye
yo pa ka konnen soufrans nou passé
si cet temps li bezoin vague sou li
sak pa reglé ap toujou tounen/

CHORUS:
Track Name: Miwa
Chorus: Waahli
Sa nou we nan miwa____MIWA
Pa vin di’l li biza BIZA___BIZA
Yo pedi non Kulwa___KULWA
Pa mande’m pou kisa___KISA

WAAHLI
Inside the matrix, Outside its reach
Outside the pattern, Inside the breach
Nou rive devan deya, m’pa bezoin artifice
Ou met chache, ou vle jwem’m lap sou on affis
Yo rekrute’m indoctrine’m tan kou katechisme
Bouche sere, yo ame tan kou ve patis
Dedan deho devan deye nou gen pou’n pale
Says who? Said the media is gonna save the day
When they hardly want the truth to stay
Heroes behind screens need to be moderated
Cervo yo incarcerated( yo) e se pa blague
E pou sa nou bouje tan kou nap baye bourad
A pe pren san mande tan kou yon kwazad
Jody a yo pad rentre pou vin prend piyaye
E pa vin dim sa legal we are outside the norm
Maintain the calm, in the eye of the storm

TALI
Inside the matrix, outside it’s reach
Outside the pattern, inside the breach
Ayyyy!!
I’m a new houseneighba here to speak
Come to air out tings like Wikileaks
Get dem codes from dem ol’ heads
Get nuff people like nuff bread
Reroute the roads
And then we offload dem G-feds
Take ‘em straight to the homestead
Get ‘em all- YO!- some new hometraining
Eat dem leafy greens
Feel they insides changing
For that next generation
We Slayin’
Casing up dem joints where they be inside trading
And if they talk back, we fade ‘em
Replace them!
They can gwan like dem facety
Yo, we know ‘bout facety
This here’s a take space ting
That sounds illegal, we outside the norm
Maintain the calm in the eye of the storm

Chorus:
Sa nou we nan miwa____MIWA
Pa vin di’l li biza BIZA___BIZA
Yo pedi non Kulwa___KULWA
Pa mande’m pou kisa___KISA

MERYEM
Inside the matrix, outside its reach /
Outisde the pattern, inside the breach /
Reconnect the disconnected
hackin’ on all the Elite /
Like Neo on the beat
decolonize’ mentalities/
Shit if I only knew the price to pay to live out all my dreams /
Id sleep less, love less and just be chasing bags of beans /
Nah X all this stress i rather seek out inner peace /
Get me Out of this mess n Kanye out his bitter tweets /
Tagged along in the battle zone with some methadone
throw a little bone to help out M. Jonez Uh’
Unadjusted to this insanity
we call society Then wonder why everybody actin’’ fuckin’ crazy
Gliding in these streets Sippin yamazaki
Comme une vrai Yamakasi
straight out the Yakuza Army
kamikaze
That sounds illegal we outside the norm/
maintain the calm in the eye of the storm /

LOU PIENSA
Inside the matrix, yet outside it's reach/Outside the pattern yet inside the breach/Insights we mange to outwrite their speech/
Inside we challenge what outside they teach/
Dentro del fuego que por dentro te quema/
dentro del tema del gran amor suprema/
fuera de la via que por dentro te mata en el centro de la vida de qual misma se trata/
dedans est la vérite/dehors c'est moins vérifié/
ce dont on a hérité/dehors les rend terrifiés/dedans c'est si evident/
dehors on est dissidants/dedans les habilités/
dehors la facilité/dehors lobotomisés/
dedans décolonisons/dehors nous atomisons ce qui reduit nos horizons/
thats illegal, yo that's outside the norm/
maintain the calm in the eye of the storm

Chorus:
Sa nou we nan miwa____MIWA
Pa vin di’l li biza BIZA___BIZA
Yo pedi non Kulwa___KULWA
Pa mande’m pou kisa___KISA
Track Name: Tie dem laces
Lou Piensa
T to R to the U to TH /
Seeking more clarity as we grow and we age /
Cleaning up my garden, I'm starting with you /
The friend with whom my trust got used and abused /
They congradulate, tap you on the back, they adulate /
Charm & deception is the coktail that they agitate /
You came late to my party, I dont accomodate /
That'll be between you and your conscience, so you moderate /
I dont tolerate you fetishing the negative /
Using it as a seditive, It aint cool until I said it is
From now on, enter my crib with your mask off /
Your mediocre approach/ecroaches on my blast off /
I got projects to export and planets to explore /
What would I let myself fall in your hexe for /
Plus I roll with spirits you dont know about /
Path here's illuminated, you still dont know the route /

CHORUS
Tali
Mek dem gwan gwan gwan wit dem ways
An’ mek dem move move move how dem move
Cuz we nah come ‘round here ‘bout fi play
We standing here just waitin’ fi truth (x2)

Cuz we nah watch no face
Tiyad how yuh fake, baby
We nah come fi race
Tiyad wit dem games, baby
We buil’ing up di case
Min’ all wat yuh say, baby
When yuh speak speak di truth!


Waahli
J’anticipe le jeu/ Comme le faisais si bien Lemieux /
J’ai tellement de rimes, I dont think i’m too sane /
La vie est parallèle à l’enfer / Donc je dois maintain /
J’pousse, pousse mon pouce vert comme la peau d’un plantain /
Hey yO! Ce temps d’office/ cloué au beat comme ça/
C’est pareil au riz colle/ Vin’ poun pluger kon ça/
Mes triples sillonnent sous l’eau en tout temps / So I don’t need no holiday
Comme l’Afrique sous sanction, changement de tension /
Bouche bée, j’suis pas isolé, mon passe temps la chanson /
C’est à deux mains que demain le monde juste vaincra sa faim /
L’humain est irresponsable ça reste une histoire sans fin /
Comme de fait, les fausses têtes s’enfoncent comme deux fossettes
après un sick set, mon front ne reste pas sec
Car je me laisse précipiter, automatique, obtenir les dernières informations


CHORUS
Tali:
Mek dem gwan gwan gwan wit dem ways

We nah come fi race
Tiyad wit dem games, baby

Min’ all wat yuh say, baby

Féfé
Sileeeeeeeeennce

LOU PIENSA
Fillin the quota with the saddest quotes/refresh their status with the status quo/rethink your syntax, our reflexions are lawless/politically incorrect, yet grammatically flawless/adjust to circumstance, dancing with the devil/flattening the pyramid, welcome the next level/Sin ayuda daquel hombre que cargo la cruz/la fuerza es silenciosa, de la sombra sale la luz/esta lucha no se escucha se siente en el aire/en estos tiempos que corren, intenso es el baile/move in silence, groove defiant, anti compliant/we the lions lyin in the shade, visualising triumph/ on sollicite une vision hollistique/portée par ceux dont la vocation dépasse les cocktails et les jolis speechs/trop s'y perdent mais l'espoir pousse comme des connifères/prolifèrent tant de mystères sur cette hemisphère

Féfé & Patrice
Chorus
Bad boys move in silence(you know)
Bad girls move in silence
We go Oy Qy ooy

TALI
Speak truth, my yut
Ah nah nuttin, still

Long time fi dem time to kill
Dem runnin drills, yo

Wan’ fo frighten fi wi children?
Stay badminded, come fi frighten

Is money ting we settling
Nah come to meek no fren an’ ting!
Dem comin’ through wit dem Robo-cop
Bout snipers pin di block, gun and cock
Call it traffic stop?
Di ‘hole wurl ah watch
So mek di wurl jump off
Cuz we nah bizness wit yuh blah blah, wishy washy tawk!!!

WAAHLI
Valis nou fe distans/ pren nan deliverance
E quand j’y pense/ se pa chanse
Nou soti kon lance / ak soufrance
Sak we violence/ e li pa di an ien
Li son komplis/ ki ap pren parti pri
Tan kou yon pantin/ malandrin
Silence lan pi fo’ pase on revolver
Me so te kwe/ ou pa vle we
Se met ko ki veye ko____djole
A le kile nou kon gade deye
Manyen ret chita ouve zoreille ou
Pou ka tande/ z’yeu pou ka we
Le’m te timoun lekol blanc te kon fe frekent
Mwen pat manke goumen/ poutan yo te kouzin’m
Voyem’non koin, non piket pou’m pense
E sa’m realize, se nou viv non kultu silence
Nou prefere pa pale nou toujou nap gade
ret tet beze pendant yap profite
Me blye sa, jodi mon che nou pap fe sa
E sa yO pa konnen mon che nou toujou laaaaaa

Waahli Chant__Outro :
Sak ki pale fo ap tombe de O
Yo toujou ap kwe vi sason rodeO
Yo te met ranse, m’pa occupe YO
Se sa ki fe nap toujou bouje pi O

Féfé & Patrice
Chorus
Bad boys move in silence(you know)
Bad girls move in silence
We go Oy Qy ooy
We go Oy Qy ooy x2

BUTTA
Some say,
the Future looking bleak
Shhh
ten cuidado
un Movimiento en silencio
Un Dedo al labio
Manage the manner in which we speak
Shout em out
Twisted like twin peak’s
Plug a channel Off the handle Teach
To reach an ocean view and the beach
Head Rest on a Guyanese peach
Fingers running through my fuzzy cheeks
Soñando under sheets
Or dream awake
And watch me reach
En un mundo de empresarios
Talking shit while they preach
And
Uptown the barrio
Diablos y angelitos
Un Hijo Prodigio
With that vocab
Prolijito
Cambio d'escenario
Cruzando continentes
Demuestra de un pibe
Que siempre pintan delincuente
Sin duda papi
We Hustle hard
The eternal motto
Roll with the punches
and count up your scars
Youngins talk cash
too loud
baja el sonido
Put my money where my mouth is
to uplift my people


MERYEM
One time for dem
Undercover rockstars
Two times for dem Unsung Mozart's
Incognito superheros
behind the scene bravehearts
Moving tectonic plates way under the radar
Cuz Dem light workers - Make Moves - in the shadows
Cuttin' thru the darkness
Shooting Golden arrows
Unseen, so clean with a gangsta lean
Real recognize Real Uncorrupted - pure beams -
Grassroot-front-liners grow flowers out the concrete
Jedi minds plant seeds
While the devil bun' trees
My day my day u do not know me very well no
One day I pray we see more heaven then hell

Oweyoooo
Ill Shine dat light for ya

Oweyooo
Let that light come through

Féfé & Patrice
Chorus
Bad boys move in silence(you know)
Bad girls move in silence
We go Oy Qy ooy
We go Oy Qy ooy x2
Track Name: Let it in
Tali
I feel like such a hypocrite
Resilient, still , I’m settling like everyday to keep my dreams
Deferred
Like: wait for another day,
another way, another’s say,
some real good pay
Some real more pay
Conditioned to be fierce, conditioned to please
Conditioned to face fears
And never reveal the shake in the knees
Yo, the scatter of the mind
The quick sand sense, I’m running out of time
Witnessing others who just don’t give a fuck
Still feeling like yo!
why the hell i still stuck
But somehow I’m moving fingers and wiggling toes to loosen up this weight of a thousand constructs
Still not enough
So I’m spiralling, unravelling
Moving with regrets got me time travelling
Til I hear my granny tell my granny
“Lillie gyal run!”
I keep that slavegirl mantra til I get it done!

CHORUS
Meryem
What are you really looking for?
if it’s.peace why u keep on feeding war
if it straight came Knockin at yo door
tell me Will you let it innn

Meryem:
I been waiting for a sign
ouh nah wait rewind
Did I miss it in denial
You know how we often let life passes us by
fulfillment or success?
Mama said That i deserve the best
but dollars won’t buy me peace of mind
If I invest in stress theres no peace to find
Overlooking the blind spots
Twistin’ some tight knots
Stuck in a time box
Waiiit oh
20/20 vision with my eyes shut
lookin’ for the right god

CHORUS
