here are some leftovers, some experiments... silly things.

sometimes when ur walking into the unknown, u somehow feel like ur going back home...even though physically, u r not... and vice versa.
new eyes, keener perception...

so here's to the thought that even when we r in our own little backyard, it can feel like a jungle.

Track Name: Master Fu's Sarong Swagger
why do i always run away,
from my mistakes?
r they even mistakes in the first place?
i don't know...
i can feel them pulling at my toes.

see i got these legs to run,
but i still crawl out from the cave.
silver linings hard to see,
but its suspended in a sun beam.

i got my swagger back...
yes i got my swagger back

keep watch u never know,
when ur gonna behold His face,
search even in the dust,
every high and low place...

don't fear to start,
i must begin,
to tread the path i'm walking in,
ever so slow,
a cautious tale,
when the wind blows,
open the sail.
it seems like a miracle,
a new day unthinkable,
i feel all, all hope again.
so come along, along my friend.
Track Name: Kidnapped Via Time Travel
kidnapped via time travel
to yesterday
i expect that retrospect has
taken me away
wanna swim with the current
but the past is pulling faster than
blurred words, gestures flowin out my hands

wanna mend that rip in the fabric of time
stitch it up,
overlock that
busted seam line.
such a bag lady,
i did hurt my back
wat badu
said was true
i need to
forgive u.

if i want i can change,
if i want i can stay the same, the same, the same.
choose wisely.

who said this would be easy?
no one ever.

entrapped like an animal looking for escape,
i detect that disrespect has taken my liberties away,
wanna fly cuz our design is to spread our wings,
upon the wind.
denied, each time - so i sing,
wanna record symphonies that spring from our lungs.
now chin up, raise your cup,
for all the sorrow that is sung.
i got life,
my boobies and my back.
now ms simone, used her bones,
to amplify beautiful tones.
Track Name: Separate
i cant separate myself from u,
i try to disconnect,
but cha calls keep coming thru.
u lie to me, when u say,
ur gonna be alright.
u lie to me, when u say,
ur gonna be alright.
Track Name: Wary
they should be wary of u,
u don't give them what they're due.
severely undervalued.

what gems u have in your possession,
if only u had eyes to see them.
Track Name: Inner Gaze
set example - hard to do - when it comes to me and you.
everyone is nobility - try to see in u and me.
we can all try our best - even in the hardest test.
simple words - but hard to do - when it comes to me and you.

pull up to the station, breath out.
silhouettes on the horizon,
the floating world is hard to find,
behind the chaos fill.
now there is probably orderly ways of going about it.

i don't really wanna go,
do u hear me.
i don't really wanna leave,
u here.
something compels me to run,
though i don't want to leave.
see i really don't want to go,
u hear me?

Track Name: The Hero with a Thousand Faces
“Furthermore, we have not even to risk the adventure alone; for the heroes of all time have one before us, the labyrinth is fully known; we have only to follow the thread of the hero-path. And where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence; where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.”
― Joseph Campbell, The Hero with a Thousand Faces

he's the hero
with a thousand faces
in all dimensions
traveling thru spaces

said we're the heros
billions of faces
journey to space!
