Track Name: for the children
For The Children
Every child should be brought up with an open mind, so that their lives aren’t governed by the same divides
that separate our lives, in the current times of childish adulthood
And we shouldn’t place any limits on their possibilities, when we are born, we ‘re in touch with infinity
but then social objectivity blockades the path, finding happiness and peace that will never last, And with this rap, I aim to put love back on the map
to attract I higher consciousness, escape the trap, of this profit scheming world that has attached a price to every drop of water from the tap
Cos when a child identifies with just a facade, without looking through the mirror at who they are
they become immersed in a reflection, attempting corrections
give some inspection and realise your own perfection

There’s nothing quite like, the taste
Of unconditional love’s embrace
Those moments when you’re face to face with grace

And every life is born with the divine right, to choose its own direction take its own flight, but the flight is grounded before its begun, by artificial boundaries, prohibiting fun
Innocence is tossed aside in this entertainment age as generations learn to behave like the latest craze
desensitised to violence sex and crimes
polluting the potential of a mind
And these days its sometimes too hard to find the warmth of human interaction, thrown aside for computer automation, Robotic A.I no traces of wisdom, Yet in moments of intuition
you can find bliss in every situation
let go of your ego, reconnect with the wisdom, the world is a playground made for the children

There’s nothing quite like, the taste
Of unconditional love’s embrace
Those moments when you’re face to face with grace
Track Name: bungalow or flat
Bungalow Or Flat

I’ve got audience forms for you to fill in
so you can express your views and give your opinions
would you give me a two or a nine out of ten
for this performance?

But please be constructive with your critique
do I sing and play the guitar with the right technique?
or did I reach my peak too early as always?

did you orgasm in your ears , or did I bring you tears?
Unless they were like the tears wept at a wedding
Maybe being a wedding singer would be the right profession for me

Well whatever life path I end up taking
this gig has been enjoyable so thanks for making it, I know that we all have busy schedules at present

This show has given me the chance to, express myself so thankyou, hope you have a safe journey home to, your bungalow or flat
This show has given me the chance to, express myself so thankyou, hope you have a safe journey home to, your bungalow or flat

Do I need to develop a new look
buy some bling, get me haircut
to be put on the front cover of magazine?

Would I make it through to the final heats of a
Xfactor? Any ladies who like me or men for that matter see me after.
In that dark corner over there

Are my lyrics too controversial
to be used in an TV commercial?
I hope you want to get to know me on a more personal level

Because my music is about uniting not about dividing,
not just about providing entertainment
with me as the star on stage
lets come to a more democratic arrangement.

This show has given me the chance to, express myself so thankyou, hope you have a safe journey home to, your bungalow or flat
This show has given me the chance to, express myself so thankyou, hope you have a safe journey home to, your bungalow or flat

But if you don’t live in a bungalow or flat
That is simply that
Cos your not part of my intended target audience
either way I hope you give some sort of response
Even if the response is nonchalant
I can change my lyrics I’m pretty pliant
And maybe next time I’ll give you exactly what you want.


This show has given me the chance to, express myself so thankyou, hope you have a safe journey home to, your bungalow or flat
This show has given me the chance to, express myself so thankyou, hope you have a safe journey home to,

your bungalow or flat
your bungalow or flat

your bungalow or flat, flat, flat, flat, flat, flat...
Track Name: coated in sugar
Coated in Sugar

Well I’m the right man if you play into my hands
don’t put on a front, and i despise the stunts
of the animalistic men on the hunt, you find dancing in the clubs
who measure a nights success on how many man points they get

I cant down pints, and I don’t carry a light,
I like to sleep at night, I cant pull in the clubs
because a lasting love can only be found
in the absence of sound.

but your hyperreal expectations
may get you a little frustrated
because you’ve anticipated the next chord in the song
before I’ve even played it

this is my life, coated in sugar
coated in sugar

dance like a bossanova
remove suspicions
gotta stop your loafing on your lazy sofa
gonna show ya, your identity ain’t nothing but an artificial construct

its evidential that I’ve got profit potential
convincing you to think the same way
by providing a blank canvas for you to paint your dreams

so buy my next three CDs
invest in a part of me
but if I give you them for free
how will fit into any marketing scheme?

this is my life, coated in sugar
coated in sugar
this is my life, coated in sugar
coated in sugar
