Gothenburg, Sweden is a hotbed of diverse and escalating musical talent. From the mighty Soundtrack of Our Lives to idiosyncratic songsmiths José González and Jens Lekman, through to the unpredictable pop styles from the likes of Love is All and Audrey, not to mention the infamous black metal scene, Gothenburg now boasts the dynamic, organically soulful pop sounds of Little Dragon.

Featuring radiant vocalist Yukimi Nagano and her close high school friends Erik Bodin (drums), Fredrick Källgren (bass) and Håkan Wirenstrand (keyboards), Little Dragon stepped into the spotlight with the release of their first double A-side single on Peacefrog (home to José and Findlay Brown), ‘Twice’/’Test’. A former Rough Trade ‘Single of the Week’ and “universally hailed as a masterpiece of free thinking soul”, according to One Week To Live.

Born and raised in Gothenburg to a Japanese father and American mother, Yukimi says, “I grew up listening to American folk because of my Mom, but I’ve always had an affinity for R’n’B.” Meanwhile, keyboardist Håkan spent his childhood in the deepest, darkest woods of Smaland before moving to Gothenburg, hearing a lot of Swedish folk music, later getting into electronic and synth music. Erik grew up hearing early hiphop and jazz. “From time to time we have had to get side jobs,” Yukimi sighs, “but we’d rather stay broke, so we can concentrate on the band.” Their true vocation can be in no doubt based on this divine debut offering.

Yukimi has sung with Sweden’s electronica-jazz outfit Koop, and both Yukimi and Erik play live with José González. Erik also drums with Peps Perrson, a legendary Swedish blues/reggae artist. “We had an admiration for each other musically, and way before we defined ourselves as a band we were making music and hanging out,” Yukimi explains. “It’s like a family, and the band is our big passion. Little Dragon reminds you that when you're really creating music, it's like building a ship that will travel in a direction previously inconceivable”.

However, what unites these disparate influences is an undeniable swing and lightness of touch, braced with bass heaviness, borne from the intuitive connection between the band members that epitomises Little Dragon’s music. Unwilling to stick to definitions or reasons for why Little Dragon is what it is, Yukimi offers effusive and illustrative impressions, which is as good a way as any to understand this very special band.

“Maybe Little Dragon is a city,” she muses. “Blue traffic-lights, fast food-signs, neon, love, loneliness, technology – a city reflected in the middle of a vast ocean. The music juxtaposes tradition and intense knowledge of musical tools, with destruction, invention... blazing a new trail. I like to think of our music as dreamy, but not always in a pleasant way. Some songs are emotional and some more free and naive.”

Little Dragon

*** Thanx a lot to Phil, Guy and Yukimi for sending me these lyrics ***

Twice

Twice I turn my back on you
I fell flat on my face but didn't loose
Tell me where would I go
Tell me what led you on I’d love to know

Was it the blue night
Gone fragile
Was it both men
In wonder steady gone under
Was it the light ways
So frightening
Was it two wills
One mirror holding us dearer now

Thought I had an answer once
But your random ways swept me along
Colossal signs so I got lost
With so many lovers singing soft

Was it the blue night
Gone fragile
Was it both men
In wonder steady gone under
Was it the light ways
So frightening
Was it two wills
One mirror holding us dearer now

Turn Left

Once I thought I knew where I came from
Now fogging up a blur I can’t recall
How many times have I been here before
Could this be my birth town

Now as I am searching for a soul
Crossing country looking for a real job
Nothing seems to suit me no
Guess i’ll keep doing what I did before

Walking down the stairs
Anonymous detached
On the corner
I turn, I turn left

Looking out at the waves
I could stand here for ten more days
Crushing stones with my toes
That woman looking at me
Could she be my relative, oh
Would she be my best friend, oh
Wonder if she’s seen me here before

Walking down the stairs
Anonymous detached
On the corner
I turn, I turn left

No Love

No sympathy really here
All the sweetness is left somewhere
On some street miles from where we seem to be
No love, no love

No compassion really here
Even the reason why we met
Has vanished in the air
You keep talking as I sit and glare
Just cant understand how it disappeared no

No love in this room
No love left in here
No love in my soul left for you

No love left in here
No love in this room
No love in my soul left for you

So I sit and wait till it appears
Hopefully someday soon
Hopefully before next year
I just sit and I glare
It’s a mystery how it vanished
How it left me here

Oh my heart so bare
Nothing left to share
Oh where did it go
Withered away
Give me love that will stay

No love in this room
No love left in here
No love in my soul left for you

No love left in here
No love in this room
No love in my soul left for you

No love left in here
No love in this room
No love in my soul left for you

No love in this room
No love left in here
No love in my soul left for you

Constant Surprises

I was walking home
Looking at the trees
Got the feeling that they
Were looking back at me

Thoughts that occurred to me
Where not of the usual kind
And I don’t take it granted no
I don’t call them mine
I don’t call them mine
‘Cause in my life things
Are built on

Constant surprises
Coming my way
Some call it coincidence
But I like to call it fate

Constant surprises
Coming my way
Some call it coincidence
But I like to call it fate

The higher forces want to connect
Last night in my dream I was talking to you
You know who you are
Were you dreaming too
‘Cause in my life
Things are built on
Are built on

Constant surprises
Coming my way
Some call it coincidence
But I like to call it fate

Then on my way home I met this guy
He was not so shy
You know not that kind
We spoke then suddenly I could read his mind
You think it’s mad
But I don’t fool myself
You think its odd
‘Cause in my life
In my life things are built on
They built on
They built on

Constant surprises
Coming my way
Some call it coincidence
But I like to call it fate

Constant surprises
Coming my way
Some call it coincidence
But I like to call it fate…

Forever

From the start love was swaying bouncing orchestra playing loud
Oh so enlightening but it also felt frightening when
A lasso in high speed make a perfect knot around my knees
I’m falling into worm embrace while secretly in chains

‘Cause I wanna call it forever call
This thing forever forever
I wanna call it forever call
This thing forever forever

These promises deform my spiritual stability
Dedication so newborn burning flavours inside of me
Oh from a vision I recall your presence in a zoom
Now loving words are faint ‘cause I’m to tight in your embrace, oh oh

Want to call it forever call
This thing forever forever
I wanna call it forever call
This thing forever forever

Big tears splash my eyes I keep my female personalities
Romance blooming smells so nice out plays any harmonies
Oh I’m floating up stream and my knees are shaking
So as we sway orchestra play oh I hope we make it

Wanna call it forever
This thing forever forever
Oh I wanna call it forever call
This thing forever forever…

After the Rain

After the rain the temperature dropt
And covered in ice was my window top
I say goodbye I wave my hand
As a thousand doves fly
Across the blackened night

After the rain we forget
We make sure we gain then we leave it
‘Cause were a nation of forgetters
Oh after the rain we pretend
It’s easier to begin without looking back

‘Cause all at once air so thin
And there’s nothing left to breath in

After the rain we forget
After the rain we forget

Behind a dream so rosy and red a pile of things to forget
A voice of the past tiptoes in a cracking ghost whispering

After the rain we forget
We make sure we gain then we leave it
‘Cause were a nation of forgetters

After the rain we forget
After the rain we forget

People where have you been
Have you been hiding
In you big houses
People after the rain
Will your life
Will it ever be the same
Oh people what will you do
When you luck
When it turns on you
Wow people after the rain
Will your life
Will it ever be the same

After the rain we forget
After the rain we forget
After the rain we forget…

Place to Belong

I’m running late again the booth is dim and it is cold and me i’ll miss this place
I’m in a sentimental state while running late trams forget to stop
And everything’s in boxes pact up stamp to go but who knows
So I’m running away running too late running to stay
Maybe i’ll stumble upon a magic wand a treasure a rocket a place to belong
A place to belong

Soon the street lights an orange glow the cab speeding
As I go so long a quick goodbye before I change my mind
So long a quick goodbye before I change my mind
So long goodbye, oh oh…

Stormy Weather

Imagining all the drama like a film
It runs in my mind all the hard times how it turns
Imagining you there thinking of your future
And of your past and new walls painted
Your eyes look low
And the ticking of the clocks too slow

Seasons stormy weather
When it ends
We will stay warm together

Seasons stormy weather
When it ends
We will stay warm together

No distance can separate
Imagine us combined light up the room electrify
Our love could be so divine
We’ll make rainbows at night
And when it’s dark we’ll be light
We’ll be light

Stormy weather
When it ends
We will stay warm together

Seasons stormy weather
When it ends
We will stay warm together
We will stay warm together
We will stay warm together

Test

A test, a test, a test, no rest
No rest, no rest
Just when you wanna exhale
Yoga down hill
He stands in the light kisses your ears
Just when you wanna relax
Wanna be alone
A crowd comes
Then a test, a test, a test, no rest
No rest, no rest

Just when you wanna give up
And everything’s flat
Emotions running back and forth
There’s no rest, no rest
Hurry to be on track
Don’t wanna walk back
Steady on the elevator lift to the top
Then a stop, a challenge
Confess confess

Up and down the hill
All around the carousel
A flowery smell
A dead end

A stop, a stop, a challenge
Confess, confess

The test, a test, a test no rest
No rest, no rest
Just when you think it’s the end
And everything’s black
Hiding in the dark there’s a sudden flash light
And your back
Back on the elevator lift to the top, another stop

Wink

Your head aches and you’ve had no rest
This days been one long test
Years pass too fast
Have to stop
Like an angel she appears
Created out of air
And all you troubles all your fears
Like blown away

‘Cause she winks at you
You feel your legs shake
You blow a kiss back
Then time stops until she turns her back

A swarm of heads turn around
And cross the street, oh
Waves of electricity
You feel the heat
You start walking fast
And blindly you’re like an ant in a stack
And years pass too fast
Yet in your dreams, you know
‘Cause she winks at you
You feel your legs shake
You blow a kiss back
Then time stops until she turns her back

Scribbled Paper

‘Cause I went looking for a trace of something that you left
And when I saw dried paint and your scribbled initials
I acted like I could care less while my thumb press to the paper
I wanted to find your portrait, wanted to have it

Recalling a piercing voice in old dreams
And ghostly images of black trains
Now seeing every page is turned away
I wanted to own your portrait
Wanted to have it

You and your scribbled paper makes me shiver so
You and your scribbled paper makes me shiver so…

 

Machine Dreams

*** Thanx a lot to Jelena for these lyrics ***

A new

Sworn to fast with all my might
The clay was soft the future bright
Old fashioned ways that won't erase
Out of control this building gate

Blinded like new
I’m feeling much stranger about you
Blinded like new
I’m feeling much stranger about you

Despite the shape
This twisted form
With open arms into the storm
Kept me kept and wanting more
I saw you peaking through the door

Blinded like new
I’m feeling much stranger about you
Blinded like new
I’m feeling much stranger about you

Looking glass

Spilled our hearts our souls until it forced us to swim
But all the water pass
Was sinking fast

Gave our all until the saw was digging in
I watch it bleed
I let it be

Made me have to throw the looking glass
You, you
Made it cold and made my summer pass
You, you

The moon the dust the dreams the rust are shattered now
I let them pass
I let them dance

Stolen time the crooked line is pointing up
Were stars away
Blazing

Made me have to throw the looking glass
You, you
Made it cold and made my summer pass
You, you

Made me have to throw the looking glass
You, you
Made it cold and made my summer pass
You, you

My step

Holding a net my arms came tied in string
Enter a world special made for kings
Deep in my heart
A simple love
Now that I’m caught
The distance of

My step slide
Lightning fight
Tropical times

There was a thrill
But peace came settling in
Into a world special made for them
Deep in my heart a simple love
Now that I’m caught the distance of

My step slide
Lightning fight
Tropical times

My step slide
Lightning fight
Tropical times

Feather

Rather be a bandit than a lover
Rather be a man with the other
To run the mountain down, run it down

Rather be a whisper in heaven
Then a daughter locked in your prison
So run the mountain down run it down

You are airborne
You've got silver rays
Will it ever float will it ever soar along

You are airborne
You've got silver rays
Will it ever float will it ever soar along

Grip the crown like winner
Pretending like a beginner
So run the mountain down, run it down

You are airborne
You got silver rays
Will it ever float will it ever soar along

You are airborne
You got silver rays
Will it ever float will it ever soar along

All for the feather
Did it all for your feathered hand
Will it ever float will it ever soar along

All for the feather
Did it all for your feathered hand
Will it ever float will it ever soar along

Thunder love

Then dawn came and I stayed and was laughing with you
The smoke love but I dove and was kissing with you
My past erase as we lay in a daze
Please say nothing of yesterdays

I’m gonna sleep
I’m gonna sleep under the stars until the end
Till your touch say time will it begin
I’m gonna love until the bitter end

Working days get in my way
As I’m thinking of you
Smoke love
Keep dreaming of when I was kissing with you
Please say nothing of yesterdays
My past erase as we lay in a daze

I’m gonna sleep
I’m gonna sleep under the stars until the end
Till your touch say time will it begin
I’m gonna love until the bitter end

I’m gonna sleep
I’m gonna sleep under the stars until the end
Till your touch say time will it begin
I’m gonna love until the bitter end

Never never

I could never have what you have
I could never have what you have

Something got me so tied
Frozen inside
Heart was pounding cause I knew that

I could never have what you have
I could never have what you have

I'll be the thief boy
Whisper to me please

I could never have what you have
I could never have what you have

Days been going so fast trying to keep up now
Tell me why you flying

I could never have what you have

I'll be the thief boy
Whisper to me now

I could never have what you have
I could never have what you have

Runabout

Rushing out the door at midnight
I found myself breathing fire
There is just one way to cure my heart from you
‘Cause I can’t let go
I’m still loving you so

Go run about the streets like it’s a race
Go run about
Run about
With the perfect plan you play with what you can and run about

You think you've got it all set up now
This fever caught me in a rush
There's just one way to cure my heart from you
Because I can let go
I'm still loving you so

Go run about the streets like it’s a race
Go run about
Run about
With a perfect plan you play with what you can
Run about

Go run about the streets like it’s a race
Go run about
Run about
With a perfect plan you play with what you can

Go run about the streets like it’s a race
Go run about
Run about
With a perfect plan you play with what you can
Run about
Run about

Go run about the streets like it’s a race
Go run about
Run about
With a perfect plan you play with what you can

Swimming

Used to know a boy
He was so shy
Never knew his thoughts
He never knew mine

My troubles disappeared
Whenever he came close
Was walking on air
My feelings exposed

Oh, oh, my life would be a different game
Oh, oh, lucky never we became
Oh, oh, and now so many years have past
Oh, oh, my memories as clear as glass

I used to be the girl
Who never had a plan
Was only daydreaming
Of only one man

Smoking in my room
Crying over you
Walking on air
Into the blue

Oh, oh, my life would be a different game
Oh, oh, lucky never we became
Oh, oh, and now so many years have past
Oh, oh, my memories as clear as glass

Blinking pigs

Phantom legs
And blinking pigs
Haunting me

My long lost love
And the memories of
You

These nights are haunting
I don’t wanna run, I don't wanna leave
Now that you’re standing closer
I don't wanna to run, don't wanna leave

Was a distant moan
And a smell of home
Haunting me

From the clouds above
Oh the memory of
You

Thou these nights are haunting me
I don’t wanna run, I don't wanna leave
Now that you’re standing closer
I don't wanna to run, don't wanna leave

Thou these nights are haunting me
I don’t wanna run, I don't wanna leave
Now that you’re standing closer
I don't wanna to run, don't wanna leave

Come home

Darling it’s about time to break free of
Hands and claws holding down the love
Take us to a safer place where we can break out of the daze
So weaved together say it’s forever

Come home soon
Shifting moods
Mysteries drive us all
Your poisonous loves our fall

Caught a ghost smile slipping out the door fast
There is no guarantee he said and the laughed
Never mind the history it slowly walks away you will see
So weaved together say it’s forever

Come home soon
Shifting moods
Mysteries drive us all
Your poisonous loves our fall

Fortune

Mountain of pearls to sooth the soul
Gold and silver and silk to cover the old
Clocks and rubies crushing these hard bones
I’m going blind from to many shiny stones

Fortune cast a curse
I knew it would
Fortune bury you
I knew it would

Sleep on ugly dreaming wave
Vivid life turn into grey
No friends want to stay around
So moving on to a different part of town

Fortune cast a curse
I knew it would
Fortune bury you
I knew it would

Ritual Union

Ritual Union

Ritual union has got me in trouble again
I was wondering of a white dress
And a mistress
And her spirit holding my hand

Love sinking in the sand
Petals falling on demand
My feet are running like the wind
I’m sorry, boy that we sinned

Love is not like they say
I lied, it’s hard to make it stay
I drown my feelings in the sea
Then dried out over on the beach

Ritual union has got me in trouble again
I was wondering of a white dress
And a mistress
And her spirit holding my hand

Mother, tell me how it is
I know you’ve been through all of this
You ran away so many times
Your kids, your heart, a couple of dimes

Love is not like they say
I lied, it’s hard to make it stay
I drown my feelings in the sea
I dried up over on the beach

Ritual union got me in trouble again
I was wondering of a white dress
And a mistress
And her spirit holding my hand

Ritual union got me in trouble again
I was wondering of a white dress
And a mistress
And her spirit holding my hand

Little Man

You grew high, taller than the middle class
Boy, cash run in your pockets
You skate high, gold on your fingertips
They try to make people nervous of

Something missing in your smile
Something missing in your soul
Are you suffering the blues
Tell me why, tell my when, tell me why, when, yeah

Green dollar bills slip your hand, Little Man
Anything you want come instantly
Boy, when a plan slip your hand, Little Man
Everything you want come instantly

Castle, house, cars and the latest blues
No doubt got you feeling empty
Man your banks packed to the edge and still you're sad

Something missing in your smile
Something missing in your soul
Are you suffering the blues
Tell me why, when, why, when

Green dollar bills slip your hand, Little Man
Anything you want come instantly
Boy, when a plan slip your hand, Little Man
Everything you want come instantly

Brush The Heat

In a stare
So in-between
I'm feeling bold
I'm in a dream
I have no mask
I have no guard
It's just the flesh there bare under the stars

And when the words
Get in the way
The ones that hurt
The ones that she said
So I give in to live the beat
I'm giving into the rhythm of my feet

Brush the heat, brush it
Brush the heat, brush it
Brush the heat, brush it
Brush the heat, brush it

Traffic slow
Lights in a haze
And all the smog
I'm in a daze
So I move down
Away from here
And if you smile then maybe I could feel

And all the words
Get in the way
The ones that hurt
The ones that she says
So I give in to live the beat
I'm giving into the rhythm of my feet

Brush the heat, brush it
Brush the heat, brush it
Brush the heat, brush it
Brush the heat, brush it

Brush it, brush it, brush it
Brush it, brush it, brush it
Brush it, brush it, brush it

Shuffle A Dream

You cruise around in a deluxe water craft
And play it big in designer shades, acting high class
And the girls that you know all admire that
They want your kids in a row
They’ll be lining up fast

To your door
So make a move
Castle in the sky
Pick and choose
If you want him
Would you share
'Cause that's the deal, girl

Trickling coins, making the noise
Follow it blind, follow the signs
Why would you want, someone so vain
Stealing your soul, making it rain

You act supreme as your fortune lit the sky
But it’s a shell with a crack and you’re just a plain guy
Play it big 'cause our world made it easy to
I see those shimmering rocks moving closer to you

To your door
So make a move
Castle in the sky
Pick and choose
If you want him girl
Could you share
'Cause that’s the deal now
If you dare, so

Trickling coins, making the noise
Follow it blind, follow the signs
Why would you want, someone so vain
Stealing your soul, making it rain

Trickling coins, making the noise
Follow it blind, follow the signs
Why would you want, someone so vain
Stealing your soul, making it rain

Trickling coins, making the noise
Follow it blind, follow the signs

Please Turn

With your clover, you're picking cherries
Taking pills, and running with the steam
Love’s so make believe

Swinging branches by your mansion
And by the Pool she's posing leopard skin
Got you dancing in

Please, pull the string now
Turn the winds all round and round
Oh, these diamonds don’t lift up
Oh, the color shift and cut

Staring down at the wondering faces
Who want your place
But on the papers you can shine and fly
Smiling in their eyes

Over land and over space
You take me to that unreal place
That I had never known
So don’t you cry

Please, pull the string now
Turn the winds all round and round
Oh, the diamonds don’t lift up
Oh, the color shift and cut

Please turn, oh
Please turn, oh, oh

Crystalfilm

Lost my grip and my vision gone dull
I swing my hip like a dancer gone numb
I saw your shadow, saw the skeleton run
Now something’s missing from my memory of you

You shake my world from my ground to my head
Distant noise that wake me out of bed
I listen as the walls cave in
I’m hanging on 'cause your memories spin on

I lost my grip, I balanced it on a piece of paper
True in one trip, it’s weaving in
And I wait for later
Who is leaning in on my yes to be
Who is sneaking in, is sneaking in on me, on me

I cut a house in half and turn a frown
Distant painted walls and letters upside down
I try to hold on, I try to hold on but you're gone
Then I try to let go but your memory’s still on

I lost my grip, I balanced it on a piece of paper
True in one trip, it’s weaving in
And I wait for later
Who is leaning in on my yes to be
Who is sneaking in, is sneaking in on me, on me

On me, on my...

Precious

Precious, you know I can't stay
I asked, you never told me
So soon, I take myself back again, again, again
I'm bitter sweet
You know that I can’t pretend

Precious, I cannot hold back
I asked, and you put me off track
So soon, I dream myself back again, again, again
I’m bitter sweet
You know that I can’t pretend

Precious, you know I can't stay
I asked, you never told me

NightLight

Open the door, there you’re standing in a row
Dancing in a twisted blue form of light, turning over
Making a sound, then you're braiding it around
Turning in a twisted blue form of light, moving your shoulders

One, two, you move, your feet, your shoes
Flying like an arrow in the room

Be my angel, love
Tell me everything I need from above
Be my heroin, tell them please what we need to never be sin
Be forever sun
Never, never, ever stop everyone
Be my shining light
Lady, I believe you transform the night

Open the door, there you’re standing in a row
Dancing in a twisted blue form of light, turning over
Making a sound, then you're braiding it around
Turning in a twisted blue form of light, moving your shoulders

One, two, you move, your feet, your shoes
Flying like an arrow in the room

Be my angel, love
Tell me everything I need from above
Be my heroin, tell them please what we need to never be sin
Be forever sun
Never, never, ever stop everyone
Be my shining light
Lady, I believe you tranform the night

You open my mind, got me floating out of time
Dancing in a twisted blue form of light
Drifting a sound, got me turning it around
Moving in a twisted blue form of life, moving your shoulders

One, two, you move, your feet, your shoes
Flying like an arrow in the room

Summertearz

The coldest wind hit me so hard
I raise my fist, I slip apart
Nothing compares, nothing at all
Just like my tears, I let them fall

It’s in my blood, this dizzy vein
It never cared of all my pain
So lead me on, into your web
It’s just a ride that's in my head

Kind of driven and kind of triggered on
I watch the woods, trying to find those inner gods
Hold it back to try to hold it in
Just like the devil that stayed ready to win

No competition, still I’m acting on a race
Watching angels dancing in the slow of ways
Got to let it go, but I can’t
Got to let it go, but I

When I Go Out

When I go out
I let my armour fall
And when they shout
I walk through the door

The sea’s blooming
I need to be gone
Through the tunnel
Kids are grown
Hair's not long

Who took the heat
Took the light
From me and my shadow

Seconds

Ten times more than the sweetest sound
Wouldn’t want to change if it brings me down
Every seven years it's on expire
Driven by a fear and a sweep of fire

Higher than the heavens
So tempted by your hands and letting go
Every now and then to fall behind
Leaning on a stranger, turning time

'Cause all I want, a second or two
And all we got are seconds to lose
And all I am is tempted by you

Because all I want, a second or two
And all we got are seconds to lose
And all I am is tempted by you

Ten times more than the sweetest sound
I wouldn’t change if it brings you down
And every seven years it's on expire
Driven by a fear and a sweep of fire

'Cause all I want, a second or two
And all we got are seconds to lose
And all I am is tempted by you

Because all I want, a second or two
And all we got are seconds to lose
And all I am is tempted by you

Mirror

You know you're making me mad
The way you look at me so
Kind of making me scared
Throwing me those eyes of Scarlet
Though when I pass by
You got nothing to say
Not even a
Oh, and it breaks my heart
Like friends in a picture glass
We capture some moments
Now I don’t recognise you
Did you lose your playful mood
This bad attitude
Too bad, it’s too bad, it’s too bad

See how you're making me blue
You know you're better than that
Staring at me, playing the fool
You must have lost your mind
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
See when you pass me by
You ain't got nothing to say
How can you forget to smile
It breaks my heart

I’mma climb up these clouds
And see things clear
You’re gonna make me put my fist through this mirror
I’m so sick and tired of looking in this mirror
See how you're making me blue

Klapp Klapp

Corridor lines with the river run watery eyes
I stand there waiting for my turn determined to rise
The spirits blew around like a hurricane whip
Girls who melt like my ice-cream drip

Someone from his head said
You can turn off and feel better
When everything's clear like cold weather
Go feel better, feel better

Somebody from my heart said
I could turn off and never wake up
When everything's clear, my breath made
Like steam fade, feel better
Falling apart, apart, apart, apart, apart

Finally they called my name
The ghost inside come wake us to life
Making my chair do flips
Yet giving in to this will be saving me time
Falling through the floor on my broken butterfly wing
Give me one more, the girl from the corridor sing, she sing

I hear you want it, don't you
I know you want it, don't you, don't you
I see you want it, don't you
I know you want it, don't you, don't you
Falling apart, apart, apart, apart, apart
Falling apart, apart, apart, apart, apart
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Someone from his head said
You can turn off and feel better
When everything's clear like cold weather
Go feel better, feel better

Somebody from my heart said
I could turn off and never wake up
When everything's clear, my breath made
Like steam fade, feel better

Do you want it
Do you want it
Do you want it
Do you want it
Do you
Do you (she sing)
Do you
Do you

Do you want it
Do you want it
Do you want it
Do you want it
Do you
Do you
Do you (she sing)

Falling apart, apart, apart, apart, apart
Falling apart, apart, apart, apart, apart

Pretty Girls

The green mermaid and the wavy mane
The California dream
Riding a unicorn through your Dalí
A free fantasy

That carefree that beginner's love
The sugar don’t live up
Sailing on a banana peel
Your trophy star
Chewing a protein bar

You magnify the universe
Grab your purse
Grab your love
Pretty girl, don’t get stuck
You’re aiming for the royal scene
The fast luck, TV dreams
Pretty girl, don’t get struck
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
So, Bubble Hills, don’t you ever burst
Never let her down
Passing our time on the trailed out crumbs
The birds ate their round
Hawaiian drinks and a famous face
You're posing innocent
Those new lashes don’t go to waste
But it could pay your rent

You magnify the universe
Grab your purse
Grab your love
Pretty girl, don’t get stuck
You’re aiming for the royal team
The fast luck, TV dreams
Pretty girl, don’t get struck

Pretty girl, don’t get stuck
Pretty girl, don’t get struck
Pretty girl, don’t get stuck

Underbart

Blow up the bridge and into the moment
Out the house and into the blue
Up to the ending
You left me here soaring
For a few seconds
To be someone new
Blow up the bridge and into the morning
Morning, morning, morning, morning, morning
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Alarm clock ring
Was it your daily routine
Your coffee’s cold by now
Her face stuck in a magazine
His white shirts
Still hanging in rows on the closet door
She still hurts
Fragments of you live on
Why do you stay home

No ordinary day
He’s leaving for good
We’re moving away
Blow up the bridge and into the morning
Morning, morning, morning, morning, morning

It’s your dance
Out in the garden when it’s late
Cut in half
Plus lost your job now you're losing face
You drove out
Before the city woke up so still
Humid air
And stories of you live on
Why do you drive home

No ordinary day
He’s leaving for good
We’re moving away
Blow up the bridge and into the morning
Morning, morning, morning, morning, morning

Out the house and into the blue
And to the ending
You left me here soaring
For a few seconds
To be someone new
Blow up the bridge and into the morning
Morning, morning, morning, morning, morning

Cat Rider

Two months ago now
Since she came around this house
Her answer machine's full
He thinks listening could give her doubts
But when this girl's made up her mind
She's made up her mind, made up her mind
Looking out to the horizon
No turning back
No wasting time

Smooth cat rider
Stop bragging 'cause she broke your facade
Don't we all want to be stars and all
Stop playing with the one that you love

Smooth cat rider
Stop bragging cause it's gone to your head
So smooth wish you were smart instead
Stop playing with the one that you love
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
A fountain in the hall
Big old portraits of himself on the wall
A diamond sculpture face
This peacock is flying all over the place
The tiger's extra cars
No she's not impressed
Your laughs and stupid jokes
The only thing she missed
Now you can't stop looking back
Leaving messages

Smooth cat rider
Stop bragging 'cause she broke your facade
Don't we all want to be stars and all
Stop playing with the one that you love

Smooth cat rider
Stop playing 'cause it's gone to your head
So smooth wish you were smart instead
Stop playing with the one that you love

Empty bottles, where to go next
Knowing what you truly missed
It's too late, can't rewind it
Can't get out your king-size bed

Now you're left with names to forget
Trying to heal from the pain
If only you could rewind it
Would not have acted the same

Smooth cat rider
She broke your facade
Smooth cat rider

Paris

Oh my God, it's green the fire, go!

It’s that time to transform
To come around, I’m changing
Oh there’s an angel knocking on my window
Trying to tell me where to go next
This small town without you
It feels cold, it’s creeping
Moving on, I'll look ahead instead

Spirit divide, drift alone
I waved her goodbye, I carried on
Trams pass my black dress
Folded on a big mess
I’m changing my next flight to Paris

The hour glass, it tick tock too fast for our destiny
I’ve got a full drawer of letters
Remember it was Paris you said we were gonna meet
Why your answer machine’s still on
It’s the oddest feeling since you’re gone
A part of me drift away with you
And will never return
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Spirit divide, drift alone
I waved her goodbye, I carried on
Dream fast, a black dress
Folded on a big mess
I’m changing my next flight to Paris

Spirit divide, drift along
I waved her goodbye, I carried on
Trams pass my black dress
Folded on a big mess
I’m changing my next flight to Paris

Spirit divide
I waved her goodbye
Trams pass my black dress
Folded on a big mess
I’m changing my next flight

La Suède est où je vis
Mais c’est à Paris que je me sens en vie
Je sens que je pourrais m’y poser
Des vacances
Et ne jamais rentrer

Lurad

The last bird smash into a skyscraper
Under the Hong-Kong lights
It fell pale like a saint
Landed on the night train
Feathers blown right

While underground
The tunnel reveal
Voiceless men
The heartache they feel
For being born
At the wrong place
At the wrong time
With a wrong faith

Rockets fire out
Razor cut a sky now
Don’t forget icing on the sides
Because you can
Blinded by the rubber-bands
Blinded by the rubber-bands
Blinded by the...
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Cigar smoke stretching over borders
Creeping like a silent thief
The birds dead
Sleeping like a icon
Make it fly
Go rest in peace
A tailored in
Suit and lie
Can’t think out loud
Cause now’s the time
Don’t loose your job
Stare in and smile
Camera left

Rockets fire out
Razor cut a sky now
Don’t forget icing on the sides
Because you can
Blinded by the rubber-bands
Blinded by the rubber-bands
Blinded by the...

Rockets fire out

Only One

Oh, oh, oh, it was spring
That look, the look you gave
Oh, oh, oh, ripping us far
Won’t you let him slumber
Or whisper the name
Sunrise gone
If there’s no tomorrow
Just wait all the same
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Oh, oh, oh, you’ve been gone
Then locked up
She wrote you long
Pitch black before they ask you for your last words
Softly spoken lines
You’re mumbling and maybe she heard
Say it one more time
Not even a river on her cheek
She sat across the bar for weeks
Getting sober

Oh, oh, oh, the world is numb
Oh, oh, oh, and cruel for some
Oh, the bar swing
As she breaks, the only one in her heart

Your girl, she jumped from the rooftop
But never landed because you woke from your sleep
I know you had no wings to be out soaring
Another lullaby to sing now
There’s a place far away that’s better
You said, “I want us to go there”
She said, “I’ll go as long as we'll stay together
‘Cause you’re the only one”

Only one that’s in my heart, only one that’s in my heart
Only one that’s in my heart, only one that’s in my heart
Only one that’s in my heart, only one that’s in my heart
Only one that’s in my heart, only one that’s in my heart

Only one that’s in my heart, only one that’s in my heart
Only one that’s in my heart, only one that’s in my heart
Only one that’s in my heart, only one that’s in my heart
Only one that’s in my heart, only one that’s in my heart

Heart, heart, heart, heart, heart
Heart, heart, heart, heart, heart
Heart, heart, heart, heart...

Killing Me

Mood swing
Have another drink
What’s that you said
I see inside you
Pass the eyes and through

Sticks and stones
Lucky clover
This carousel’s taking me home
Back of a taxi used
Ten more blocks to cruise, yeah, yeah

Now that I’m home
Outside’s in here
No longer aware of you
You created a space
I’ll take my rocket ship
And get the hell out of this
Nothing that I could miss
You’re killing me
You’re killing me
You’re killing me
You’re killing me

Time, hurry
Heal my every wound
Don’t burden me
Lead me to symphonies
I’m like a masterpiece
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Gold beam
Dazzle every step
Time will bring
Sweet offering
Brand new
Nothing there to lose
Yeah, yeah

Now that I’m home
Outside’s in here
No longer aware of you
You created a space
I’ll take my rocket ship
And get the hell out of this
Nothing that I could miss
But you’re killing me
You’re killing me
You’re killing me

You’re killing me

Now that I’m home
Outside’s in here
No longer aware of you
You created a space
I’ll take my rocket ship
I'll get the hell out of this
I'm making it in spite of how
Much you're killing me

Pink Cloud

Racing day by day
Post the work you share
Drowning in a lifetime
Watching the silver blowing hair
Watching the cats lined in her room
Catching eyes in full set zoom
Electric clouds of information tumble down
Too fast
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
My world spin faster
Your world spin faster
My world spin
Your world spin
Our world spin faster

Blind, I’m blind, I’m blind
I couldn’t follow rules if I tried
Now we're all in search of speed
Leave mankind for machine
Leaving souls stare at screens
So caught up with the things I don’t need
So fast

The world spin fast
My world spin faster
Your world spin
Our world spin
The world spin faster

Faster

Let Go

You disappeared all of a sudden
But where
I’ve forgotten to check
To follow the hum and the rain
To follow the drummer
We lie
So in love
But this love is not for everyone
And I’m just dragging along
Don’t want it ever to stop

Daylight spring 'em up along
I did and my work began to go, oh
And if I ever did you wrong
It’s rain on

Let go of everything I know
I know you’re catching up soon
Sweet nights, sweet June
Let go so the rain may yawn
We’re spoiled and break down here, on here
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Do you feel so immortal
So real
Pushing under the rain
Feeling thunder and pain

Oh, I’ve forgotten to follow the drum
I’m laying here falling in love
Dragging along
Don’t want it ever to stop

Daylight spring 'em up along
I did and my work began to go, oh
And if I ever did you wrong
It’s rain on

Let go of everything I know
I know you’re catching up soon
Sweet nights, sweet June
Let go so the rain may yawn
We’re spoiled and break down here, on here

On here, on here
On here, on here

Let go of everything I know
I know you’re catching up soon
Sweet nights, sweet June
Let go so the rain may yawn
We’re spoiled and break down here, on here

Season High

Celebrate

All you ever dream of is right here, baby
Racing endlessly, well, you lost gear
All you truly wanted has come true, baby
Don't let little worries make you blue
Oh well you copy you paste you're a stupid robot
Don't escape, love, celebrate
Fading every fear into rainbow tear
For tonight, don't be uptight
Hundred red balloons in your honour, dear
It's your birthday

Let love drip
Loose your grip
Let love drip
Let love drip

Riding through the storm, well, you lost steer, baby
Chasing every first prize can cost years
All you truly wanted is right here, baby
Shadows try to rob you of your thrills

Don't escape, it must be fate
Better now than late so go dance divine
Your cheeks blush, don't you miss this rush
Feel it in your blood, now, is your time

Let love drip
Lose your grip
Let love drip
Let love drip

Let love drip
Lose your grip
Let love drip
Let love

High

I guess we'll never get started
Let's lay in silence all night
No need for talking about it
Sometimes, the quiet feels so right

High
Over the north star
Sleepless, so far
Together, we are
High
Trapped in a holiday affair
A new silence fill the air
Oh well you copy you paste you're a stupid robot
I rest my head on your shoulder
There's nowhere else I'd rather be
Right there, a little bit slower
Feel free to roll another one for me
Roll another one for me

High
Over the north star
Sleepless, so far
Together, we are
High
Trapped in a holiday affair
A new silence fill the air

Milky way, we sway, we slide, oh
One flight to space, soothing you
It's too good to be true, half moon and rooftop view
Milky way, we sway, we slide, oh

High
Over the north star
Sleepless, so far
Together, we are
High
Trapped in a holiday affair
A new silence fill the air

High
High
High
High

The Pop Life

Was that age of the stranded pop life
Just sit still in your chair, why'd you fight
Is it true that the spirit's long gone
But can we bring it back from the dead

You say the free really don't care
We're paralized, broken out here
Raising our flags
Popping our tags
Work it full staff

You say the free really don't care
We're paralized, broken out here
Got our new bags
Popping the tags
All I see is dollar signs
Oh well you copy you paste you're a stupid robot
There are no fists in the air, not this time
When you're desparate you care, we unwind
Watch the fall of our empire on the big screen
The dark side been so mean

If you want it, then you buy it
Or make it with a big old dream
stay silent, yeah yoo take it
'Cause you wanna be seen
Quick road to fame or sit back in your chair
Don't dispair, nobody cares
It's a free country here

You say the free really don't care
We're paralized, broken out here
Raising the flags
Popping the tags
Work it full staff

You say the free really don't care
We're paralized, broken out here
Got our new bags
Popping the tags
All I see is dollar signs

Living full blast
All I see is dollar signs

Sweet

Sweet, that feeling when you know you're hooked and you can't get enough
Sweet, that feeling when you're skating down the avenue in love
Sweet, always checking on your phone because this sweetness is a drug
Sweet, can't get enough, not giving up

Sweet, that feeling when you know your numb but you can't fight the rush
Sweet, that feeling when you fooled so good but won't admit the bluff
Sweet, always checking on your back because this candy gives me luck
Sweet, can't get enough

Candy overflowing
My love sugarcoated
Can't resist this high taste
Can't resist his sweet praise no, no

Wrapped up in a sugar rush, sugar rush
Wrapped up in a sugar rush, sugar rush
Oh well you copy you paste you're a stupid robot
The more the mystery, the more I get compelled
Sweet, the taste of victory so sweet, oh I can't help it
Always checking on my back because this candy gives me luck
Sweet, can't get enough, not giving up

Sweet, that feeling when you know you're hooked and you can't get enough
Sweet, that feeling when you're faded down the avenue in love
Sweet, always checking on my pulse because the body is trust
Sweet, can't get enough

Candy overflowing
My love sugarcoated
Can't resist this high taste
Can't resist his sweet praise no, no

Caramelted like (Caramelised, I can't deny your love)
Make my body fly (Sugarcoated, can't deny it)
I'm a junkie for you (Caramelised, I can't deny your love)
Skating down the avenue, avenue

Wrapped up in a sugar rush, sugar rush

Sweet
Sweet

Butterflies

Sang a lullaby to a butterfly
Child's wide brown eyes, secrets inside
She said, "When I die, become a butterfly
You came fluttering coloring meadows and hills
Beauty gave me the chills
Flying on your own, then a thousand mourn
Thousand souls swarming, thousands were performing"

Bright white, emerald green
Silk blue, satin seas
Amber spotted wing
Go, go blow in the wind
Oh well you copy you paste you're a stupid robot
Bright white, emerald green
Silk blue, satin seas
Amber spotted wing
Go, go blow in the wind
Go, go, go, go blow in the wind

In her old house, from a lover's mouth
He kept visiting behind the bamboo screen
She said, "When he die, became a butterfly
He was fluttering, coloring meadows and hills
Beauty gave us the chills
Flying on your own, then a thousand mourn
Thousand souls swarming, thousands were performing
Thousand souls swarming, thousands were performing"

Bright white, emerald green
Silk blue, sailing seas
Amber spotted wing
Go, go blow in the wind

Bright white, emerald green
Silk blown, sailing seas
Amber spotted wing
Go, go blow in the wind
Go, go

Should I

How many weeks since you were mine
I stayed over all the time
If I was invited, I'd be there
But you're acting busy, why should I care

Should I care
Should I care
Should I

Blow, blowing cave, I want your magic
People afraid of feeling tragic
If I was invited, I'd be yours
But you're high headed with all your chores
Oh well you copy you paste you're a stupid robot
Should I care
Should I care
Should I

Judge me, judge me, I don't mind my
Glasses are dirty and I find
Your friends looking blurry over there
There laughing, why do they, do they care

Wanna be your lover
Wanna be your friend
Invite me in, invite me in

How many times I slip and bruise
I'm out of band-aids because of you
Just one crazy love affair
Now that you're gone, why do I care

Do I care
Do I care
Do I
Should I

Should I care
Should I care
Should I care

Don't Cry

Even if I never told the truth
When I said I always knew
Even when I felt confused
I always had sides to choose

Even when I suddenly lost my track
I managed to find my way back
And fight for you

Little darling, don't cry
You can see rainbows in the night
Little one, uncover your eyes
We can rewrite these naked lies
Oh well you copy you paste you're a stupid robot
We'll be alright now, we'll be alright now
My love feels like a real obsession
The way I dream of you in your peace
Flew closer with the wings of doves
Don't weep, don't weep no more
Keep singing, you'll discover
The reason why we loved eachother

Little darling, don't cry
We can paint rainbows through the night
Little one, uncover your eyes
We can rewrite these awful lies

Even if we slip a million times
Even if you feel you were disguised
Even in a world of black and white
Still trying to reach the highest highs
Even when I lost my tracks
I managed to jump right, jump right back
And fight for you

Little darling, don't cry
We can paint rainbows through the night
Little one, uncover your eyes
We can rewrite these awful lies

Strobe Light

Lost, where you been
Glow drip down your skin
Dizzy, spinning
Glow drip down your skin

What's it like from those heights
Angels steer you in
Just a taste, taste it
Soon reborn again

Strobe light
Ultra violet blue
Eyes and teeth
Ultra violet hue

Staring, she's staring
Through a crowded room
Coming closer, you're sweating
Inhales a piece of you
Oh well you copy you paste you're a stupid robot
You're smiling, teeth glowing
The angels steer you in
Have a taste, taste it
Soon reborn again

Glowing in the park
Pearly whites in the dark
Don't venture too far
Got to find your way back

Glowing in the park
Pearly whites in the dark
Don't venture too far
Got to find your way back

Strobe light
Ultra violet blue
Eyes and teeth
Ultra violet hue

Morning sun don't interrupt
A mad man's plea to be
In between space and time
There's invisibility, oh

Strobe light
Ultra violet blue
Eyes and teeth
Ultra violet hue
(Ultraviolet blue)
Eyes and teeth

Gravity

If you let me show you
We could visit planets in the middle of the night
Be mine, love
You could be my man on the moon singing out of tune
You still would sound alright, love
If I get to know you
I could leave a copy of the key under the mat, love
Let you unlock the door to all of me
Can you image that, love

My love
Gravity won't stop us from taking off
And if we get lost
Galaxies apart
Gravity won't stop us from taking off
And if we get caught
Trapped inside the dark
Oh well you copy you paste you're a stupid robot
If you can't imagine
I can be the escort that brings you to the light, love
Let's be old fashioned on rotery telephones
Will you call me tonight, boy
If you wanna find me
Find me on a walk this evening in the park, boy
Come and unlock the door to all of me
Set fire to the spark, boy
Don't be an alien to my love

Gravity won't stop us from taking off
And if we get lost
Galaxies apart

Gravity won't stop us from taking off
And if we get caught
Trapped inside the dark

Gravity won't stop us from taking off
And if we get lost
Trapped inside the dark

Gravity won't stop us from taking off
And if we get caught
Galaxies apart

Galaxies apart
Gala, galaxies apart
Gala, galaxies apart
Galaxies apart

Bullets

(Kaytranada feat. Little Dragon / 99.9% LP)

I feel raindrops falling washing off my tears
I've been walking through a daydream all my years
Oh I do believe in world peace, my dear
I do

Wise women will call your name
If you believe in impossible things
If you believe if it grows from seeds to a beautiful tree

What you want, what you want, you want...

Sun don't shine
And we all know why
Bullets keep flying
So many shooting
In the darkest times
Through the darkest night
What you want, what you want

Sun don't shine
And we all know why
Bullets keep flying
So many crying
In the darkest night
Through the darkest times
What you want, what you want

I can feel it in the air it just grew thin
Then the numbers, they'd be counting coming in
Do you believe in world peace, my friend
Do you

Sun don't shine
And we all know why
Bullets keep flying
So many shooting
In the darkest times
Through the darkest night
What you want, what you want

Sun don't shine
And we all know why
Bullets keep flying
So many crying
In the darkest night
Through the darkest times
What you want, what you want

Sun don't shine
And we all know why
Bullets keep flying
So many shooting
In the darkest night
Through the darkest times
What you want, what you want
What you want, what you want

Descending

(Big Boi feat. Little Dragon / Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors LP)

Little Dragon:
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
You will never know
If you don't
If you don't

Big Boi:
When I think back, I'm glad I lived it all
The pain when I'm thinkin' 'bout it, Dad
I will not fall
Even tired and all
Grandmamas
Great grandmama they gone
My daddy's gone

Little Dragon:
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
You will never know
If you don't
If you don't

Yeah

Hey, even with a storm to face
I still stand tall
I take beyond
The city I was born and raised
Lights
Lights turn off
Running along my own way
My body lift up
Even when I go stray
By now you should know us
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now

If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
You will never know
If you don't
If you don't

Big Boi:
From the bottom of my chest to my stomach
God damn it, my daddy is gone
My daddy's gone

Little Dragon:
A fallen envy on my heart
From the waves that rock, I listen for you
I'm listening through

If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
You will never know
If you don't
If you don't

If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now
If you don't know me by now

If you don't love me by now
You ain't never gonna love me

Drawn

(De La Soul feat. Little Dragon / And the Anonymous Nobody... LP)

Shadow, you're drawn
Why don't you go
In the corner, babe
Watching the snow

Moving afar
Rolling away
In the corner, believe
Why won't you stay
Won't you stay, babe
Won't you stay babe

Oh I never know what come around
I never looked ahead
I'm wrecking rules and it's pulling us down
The words I wished I'd said
Shadow, you're drawn and you got your ways
Shadow, you're painted red, red

Moving afar
Rolling away
In the corner, believe
Why won't you stay
Won't you stay, babe
Won't you stay babe

It's drawn, it's drawn
It's drawn, it's drawn
It's drawn, it's drawn
It's drawn, it's drawn

One, two
Yo, I'm with the paper plate, hold
Too many dreams, a paperweight took a toll
Food on the floor, not on the wasted or knew
Or what's being pasted and know that it's not a copy
I own a prize instead of gas price
Lyrically wonder why I travel past the nicest
Born in a generation that don't generate patience
I travel too fast for you to clock me (time)
Not always a good thing
You can lose the love of your life to a lifetime of love on tour
I didn't mean to be a whore, but my hormones
Had me like a fiend screaming "What you got for me?"
Two words (I'm mortal)
But the fans lift 'em both together and remove the apostrophe
Hip hop's lords, maybe, but my ways needs laundering
Time's a-ticking, stop squandering

Higher Res

(Big Boi feat. Jai Paul & Little Dragon / Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors Dexule Edition LP)

Jai Paul:
I wanna get in higher res
I wanna see it on the sick screen
I wanna get it now anytime, anywhere
I wanna put it on the five point one
I just want to get it on
I wanna get it now anytime, anywhere
I wanna get it higher res

I wanna see it on the sick screen
I wanna get it now anytime, anywhere
I wanna put it on the five point one
Get it on
I wanna get it now anytime, anywhere
I wanna get it higher res

Big Boi:
1080p
Now what can be clearer when you're vision is blurry
Well, I say wipin' away the steam up off the mirror
And bathin' in the fog, dog
She about this lumberjack so she gonna get this log
'Cause I'm a get that thundercat when I get up under that thang
Her natural habitat is a bang, bang
Surrounded by the jungle
The sea
The tundra
B I G stay cooler than the pussy on a penguin in the summer
Niggas in slumber but we been runnin' this bitch and never fumbled, fumbled
Fumble!
Hot tomato wake up

Jai Paul:
I wanna get in higher res
I wanna see it on the sick screen
I wanna get it now anytime, anywhere
I wanna put it on the five point one
I just want to get it on
I wanna get it now anytime, anywhere
I wanna get it higher res

Little Dragon:
Turn on
Burn out
It's all about
How you wanna give it to me
I'm up
Online
Press send
Don't rush
I know you wanna get it in

Jai Paul & Little Dragon:
I wanna get in higher res
I wanna see it on the sick screen
I wanna get it now anytime, anywhere
I wanna put it on the five point one
I just want to get it on
I wanna get it now anytime, anywhere
I wanna get it higher res

I wanna see it on the sick screen
I wanna get it now anytime, anywhere
I wanna put it on the five point one
I just want to get it on

Light

(ODESZA feat. Little Dragon / In Return Deluxe Edition LP)

I gave my cards away
Would lose the game for you
Each second slipped away
Did not know what to do

Was always drawing secrets on your wall
My clothes were always falling on your floor
A reckless heart could never be much more

I always snuck in late
Running through the front gate

Light
Floating on a feather
Light
Landing on forever

Our trip surreal, so high
We flew right through the roof
Those nights you never came home
I stayed up needing you

Was always writing poems in math books
My idols were the clever fast crooks
This reckless heart could never be much more

I always snuck in late
Rushing through the front gate

Light
Floating on a feather
Light
Landing on forever

Float on a feather, land on forever
Float on a feather, land on forever

Mama Told Me

(Big Boi feat. Little Dragon / Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors LP)

Big Boi:
As the world shakes unharmed
Twan, calm in the middle of the storm bomb
Flow tsunami, ring the alarm
Big Boi for dummies come and get some
Uhh, wisdom, like yo back teeth
Or get the fuck on, like some bad chi
Negative energy not tolerated
You all about a dollar and I'm exonerated
Freefalling, Tom Petty heartbreaker
Living legend, rap scholar, art major
'Cause I make major art
Like Beethoven, Van Gogh, or Mozart so don't start
Around these parts we reign supreme
And stay Krispy Kreme clean
Blue jeans, Jordans
Number 3's, that's important

Little Dragon:
Be careful how you play your cards
Be true to self and you'll go far
Try not to break too many hearts
I always knew I'd be a star
That's what mama told me

Big Boi:
Mama used to say take your time
Well I’m a pickpocket when I design rhymes
Every little step I take like Bob Brown
It's so profound that when I throw those nouns
We gon' get low low down until we get back up
Everything gravy, taters mashed up
You know I keep a full plate
And a full thing of hot ones, throw away 38's
But everything's straight, bleed, shit
I got everything I can need
Me, boy, I'm everything you can't see
Like three blind mice, on the chase of some great cheese
And Cheddar Man say he got some great trees
Say he serve me and my nigga Three G
Butt tees, Jordans, number 5, you niggas boring

Little Dragon:
Be careful how you play your cards
Be true to self and you'll go far
Try not to break too many hearts
I always knew I'd be a star
That's what mama told me

Cause I travel like a rocket, I do
Mind riddle every socket for you
I sway on the edge of the lightning
Magnetic, can't stop
Just floating won't drop
I slip (I slip), I slide (I slide)
Back up the ride
I skippin' every mountaintop
I'm reachin' for the highest high

Be careful how you play your cards
Be true to self and you'll go far
Try not to break too many hearts
I always knew I'd be a star
That's what mama told me

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

That's what mama told me
That's what mama told me
That's what mama told me
That's what mama told me
That's what mama told me
That's what mama told me
That's what mama told me

Millionaire

(Kelis cover / Triple J's Like a Version)

Mama, I'm a millionaire
But I feel like a bum
Mama, I'm a millionaire
But I feel like the only one

I, I, I, I woke up early this morning
I don't think y'all heard me
I woke up early this morning
I don't think y'all heard me
I woke up early this morning
I don't think y'all heard me
I woke up early this morning
But I still can't see the sun
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Papa, I'm a millionaire
But Saks Fifth Ave. don't sell affection
Saks Fifth Ave. don't sell affection
Papa, I'm a millionaire
But I can't move in the right direction
Something ain't right, I know

I am rich, he is rich, she is rich, we is rich
I am rich, he is rich, she is rich, we is rich
I am rich, he is rich, she is rich, we is rich
I am rich, he is rich, she is rich, we is rich

Where there is cheese there are rats
Where ever there are rats there are cats
Where ever there are cats there are dogs
If you got the dogs, you got bitches
Bitches always out to put their paws on your riches
If you got riches, you got glitches
If you got glitches in your life computer, turn it off
And then reboot it, now you back on
Can't just put the cap on the old bottle once you pop it
That'll spoil it, go on and drink it and enjoy it

What's a girl to do when she has dimes no time just play
What's a girl to do instead of me it's you'll be true
What's a girl to do in a world of greed but kneel and pray
What's a girl to do when she's lost her long time friends that's lie

Scale It Back

( With DJ Shadow )

I swear I saw blue light
My feet followed it outside
And I thought I heard someone say
Fly far away
And when you reach up the sky is there

This clueless weather know
We swing the waves, and let it go
Until I heard someone say
Over the rise and beyond
Oh, where you’re reach and knocked over stars

Like light I came from pocket finesse
Every moment I see with eye closed
Take me to places where we can start
Like light I came from pocket finesse, every

Nothing can steal this treasure from us, babe
I’m still in luck– now
Fighting the sounds

Take chances and come closer to me babe
I’m fallin’ out – now

Sunshine

You were my sunbeam
When skies are dark
You got me flying
Way beyond
'Cause I've been wandering
And feeling lost
Now, like whirlwind
You put a spell on me

Have been dragging my feet along sleepless everday
I couldn’t figure out a thing
Until your lightbeam came crashing in
Waited five seconds, soaked in some magic, shoot across
To transform my every loss
But then you came storming

You were my sunbeam
When skies are dark
You got me flying
Way beyond
'Cause I've been wandering
And feeling lost
Now, like whirlwind
You put a spell on me

Your electric ways had me right then
Me and my ghost of the past, get him tied down
Waited five seconds, soaked in some magic, come across
To transform my every loss
But then you came storming in

You were my sunbeam
When skies are dark
You got me flying
Way beyond (way beyond)
'Cause I've been wandering
And feeling lost
Now, like whirlwind (like whirlwind)
You put a spell on me

The Festival

(Mac Miller feat. Little Dragon / GO:OD AM LP)

Mac Miller:
Yeah, yeah
Let me get a little bit more beat
Yeah

Ask God if she believe in me and will she accept me as a deity
And tell me the secrecy won't keep you free
I'm sleeping, won't dream until the demons leave
I took a nap, I need a tree in the shade
Feel the sharpness of the swords and blades of grass
Picturing the images that make you laugh
I left you out to die, but will you take me back (back)

Somewhere in between the crazy and the conscious (conscious)
She's naked underneath them shadows
Let the sunlight undress her slow (slow)
I don't know who I am (am)
I'm so good at doing impressions though
I'm going to the festival (the festival)
The festival need to let me go

I wake up (I wake up)
Pop a couple Benadryls (Benadryls)
Go back to sleep
It's all made up (made up)
Everything they said was real (real)
It has to be
'Cause actually the master fast asleep
And the castles back-back in his private quarters
That's a master for you, this a revolution
We don't have no order (no, no, no)

All this torture, thought I had to warn you
Leave it all behind and go to California (go, go, go)
I'm past the signs, it's the real thing
Try analyzing this feeling
You can't fathom (you can't, can't, can't, can't, can't)

Little Dragon:
The festival
The festival
The festival
The festival

My hands come up behind the clouds
I'm the clap-clap thunder looking down
While you're running around
I lift you up when you drown

Unlock the nation
Planet in rotation
Full speed chasing
And you're always running ahead
You're always running ahead

You've got second chances
Happy birthday, sweet romances
And you battle like a champion
Why do you wanna go, do you wanna go
Do you wanna go to the festival

You've got angels
We can see them dripping from the sky
You watch 'em with your third eye
So, so, so do you wanna go, do you wanna go
Do you wanna go to the festival
To the festival
To the festival
The festival
The festival

Hola, Malcolm.
Hey man, it's-it's Luis, man.
I'm calling, man, to tell you about the album.
I listened, it's good.
I need to tell you, man.
I tell everyone to-to listen to the music and it sound like they like it, man.
It sound like they're good.
I tell my wife, "I'm-I'm so proud of him."
I tell my girlfriend, "I'm so proud of him."
And the album is good.
It's so good.
I cannot believe it.
Anyone can't beat you.
No one can't beat you.

Killer Mike:

Wanderer

(The Alchemist & Oh No feat. Little Dragon / Welcome To Los Santos LP)

You keep an eye upon my back
Rock me out of a trance
Rocking my balance

I had a taste and it was sweet
Almost knocked me dead
In my dreams, I'm wet

Won't you help me now
'Cause my night is over
And I'm running out
I feel it taking over
Won't you help me now
'Cause my night is over
And I'm running out

I'm losing, I'm losing
I'm losing my mind
I'm moving, I'm moving
I'm moving in time
I'm losing, I'm losing
I'm losing my mind

I give it all for the high
Wake me every time
?

And if the devil would go by
Play me ?
Knock me off my feet

Won't you help me now
'Cause the night is over
And I'm running out
I feel it taking over
Won't you help me now
'Cause my night is over
And I'm running out

I'm losing, I'm losing
I'm losing my mind
I'm moving, I'm moving
I'm moving in time
I'm losing, I'm losing
I'm losing my mind

? with you
Wanna get in trouble with you
And I don't want it to be over
No, I don't want it to be over

Dancing with the devil, us two
Wanna lose my mind forever with you
And I never want it to be over
No, I never want it to be over

? with you
Wanna get in trouble with you
And I don't want it to be over
No, I don't want it to be over

Dancing with the devil, us two
Wanna lose my mind forever with you
And I never want it to be over
No, I never want it to be over

Wildfire

( SBTRKT Feat. Yukimi )

I could bet all of the riches that I ever had
Rushing the night like a shockwave wouldn’t be bad
If I had to second heart, cause of the thrills that run up my back
You’re my star, nothing else can lead me off track

Like a wildfire, you’ve got me rising high
Your innocence, who’s brave
Drowning in, would you save me
It’s a crime if you don’t
You’ll expire by the throat

I could bet all of the riches that I ever had
Rushing the night like a shockwave wouldn’t be bad

Like a wildfire, you’ve got me rising high
Your innocence, who’s brave
Drowning in, would you save me
It’s a crime if you don’t
You’ll expire by the throat

Your innocence, who’s brave
Drowning in, would you save me
It’s a crime if you don’t
You’ll expire by the throat

Winners

( Klapp Klapp EP )

Don’t we all want to be the stars of the show
Red carpets ready to roll
Cameras flash wheever we go
I used to daydream of winning the tournament
Shaking hands with the President
I’d be so bold
Again now

In my vision we were winners
But we’re only just beginning
And I guess it’s alright
May the road be long
Let something drag on
‘Cause it’s feeling so nice
In my vision we were kings
But we own nothing
And I guess it’s alright
May the road be long
Let something drag on

I’ve always been the queen
Don’t be surprised
Used to dress up all the time
World stopped blind
And my thighs
And they fall flat
We built the kingdom
Of a visible fuse
Only one thing stand true
I’ll the richest, the richest
As long as I have you

In my vision we were winners
But we’re only just beginning
And I guess it’s alright
May the road be long
Let something drag on
‘Cause it’s feeling so nice
In my vision we were kings
But we own nothing
And I guess it’s alright
And the rope ain’t long
Unless something drags on

In my vision we were winners
But we’re only just beginning
In my vision we were kings
But we own nothing
May the road be long
Let something drag on
In my vision we were kings
But we own nothing
May the road be long
Let something drag on
