This record is the most unique in that it's the only beat that wasn't specifically made for this project. brandon* worked this super dope remix of Bibio's All the Flowers and I felt something special when I heard it.

When you feel it, you feel it, and can't deny it's truth.


Torture, related torture/I carried sorrow for days/what was the source of/my life's pain/it's centered within a skin tone/when life plays with knives you betta get grown/and my eyes have seen many punishment/given food for thought and couldn't stomach it/now I'm wise and grown/the wit lasted/another year you lit my party with matches/and the fire didn't care what it caught/tarnish the floor with a smile of mischievous thoughts/I don't miss it at all/made it missing it's parts/should have figured it odd/thinking this is my fault/in that cage of ecstasy I was closer to God/I was closer to God/tellin me what you thought/pad the walls with my mystery/maybe it made sense to me/stare into the heavens with my brethren while she visits me/

(Oh god!!!)
will you still love me after this?
(Oh god!!!)
will she still love me after this?
(Oh god!!!)
will he still love me after this?
Yall don't love me.

bodies on top of bodies/embrace the motherland/and grab another's hand/hold your children close and try to help them understand/the stage is set you should cross the land/across the burning sands/damn/dreams of social stability/sympathetic lack of real action is killing me/or maybe the will in me/I see the troubles of the world in real time/& lies/so when I say there's trouble/it's execution of real lives/tell me, maybe, what you mean to me/tell me anything and everything or maybe what you seem to be/tell me the truth so I can be the enemy/destroy my population/everything I hold dear to me/tell me now that you can hold me back/tell me now it was provoked attack/tell me how all of my people shape the world/set the tone/but now we're back in black/bullshit/now tell me how all my people lack

(they spread their lies in righteous laughter/we are the bodies that their after/can't keep the quiet cause we see you/it doesn't matter we will beat you)
