 (by Jason Ankeny)

Neneh Cherry Blank Project is her first solo album in 16 years – a collaboration with RocketNumberNine, produced by Four Tet, and featuring a guest appearance by Robyn. The 10-track album, recorded and mixed over a 5-day period will be out February 25th, 2014 on Smalltown Supersound. It follows 2012's The Cherry Thing, a collaborative record with free jazz, noise collective The Thing, which featured new versions of songs by The Stooges, MF Doom, Ornette Coleman, amongst others.

While her energy and demeanor may not have changed since the days of Rip Rig + Panic, musically, Blank Project is a departure from anything Neneh has previously done, initially written as a means of working through personal tragedy. What stands out upon first listen is the album's sparseness: loose drums and a few synthesizers are the only accompaniment to Neneh's wildly poetic, sometimes-spoken, sometimes-screeching, soul-flooded and raw vocals. The space created by this minimal aesthetic leaves room for occasional pistes and flurries of rapid, yet throbbing and thunderous instrumentation.

Featuring combined elements of beat poetry, avant-electronica and beautiful vocal melodies, it's a record that uses simple ideas to create something entirely original. And despite the personal struggles, Neneh was working through in writing this new material, the songs are far from introverted.

As many are aware, the stories from Neneh's early years are astonishing. She spent her childhood living 50/50 between a loft in New York and in the South of Sweden with her mother and stepfather, the legendary jazz musician Don Cherry. She's been lifted onto Miles Davis' lap, Allen Ginsberg regularly passed through their home in an evening and as she got older, she could pop in on Arthur Russell, Talking Heads and The Modern Lovers who all lived in the same loft complex in Long Island City New York. At 14, she started taking trips to Harlem with Ari Up of the Slits at a time when few would venture so far uptown. Soon after, she left home and moved to London, and spent the next 20 years inside the crucial developments in British subculture.

As post-punk became the site of 80s Britain's artistic and political resistance, she helped form the anarchic multi-ethnic, multi-genre Rip, Rig + Panic, and she was one of the first to bring hip-hop culture to a British audience with “Buffalo Stance” and Raw Like Sushi. Although at points her career had brushes with the mainstream, Neneh remained staunchly counter-culture.

Through post-punk's adherence to mixed-race line-ups and antigovernment stance, to UK rap's refusal of the conventions of pop, triphop's connection with the politicized elements of rave culture and, through 1996's Man, where Neneh introduced elements of Senegalese language to mainstream audiences for the first time via the mammoth “7 Seconds” single featuring Senegalese singer Youssou N'Dour, and now, with Blank Project, Neneh continues to arrive at moments in musical history when there is an opportunity to subvert ideas of popular culture. She is subverting once again, only this time, although this record is musically bold, Neneh sees the stasis she's challenging isn't musical or societal, but her own.

Buffalo Stance

Who's that gigolo on the street
With his hands in his pockets and his crocodile feet
Hanging off the curb, looking all disturbed
At the boys from home, they all came running
They were making noise, manhandling toys
That's the girls on the block with the nasty curls
Wearing padded bras sucking beers through straws
Dropping down their drawers, where did you get yours?

Gigolo, huh, sukka?
Gigolo, gigolo, huh, sukka?

Who's looking good today?
Who's looking good in every way?
No style rookie
You better watch don't mess with me

No money man could win my love
It's sweetness that I'm thinking of
We always hang in a Buffalo Stance
We do the dive every time we dance
I'll give you love baby not romance
I'll make a move nothing left to chance
So don't you get fresh with me

Get funky
Yeah Timmy
Tell it like it is
Check out this DJ

So you say you wanted money but you know it's never funny
When your shows worn through and there's a rumble in your tummy
But you had to have style get a gold tooth smile
Put a girl on the corner so you can make a pile
Committed a crime and went inside
It was coming your way but you had to survive
When you lost your babe, you lost the race
Now you're looking at me to take her place

Who's looking good today?
Who's looking good in every way?
No style rookie
You better watch don't mess with me

Smokin'. Not cokin'. Get funky sax.
Looking good, hanging with the wild bunch.
Looking good in a Buffalo Stance.
Looking good when it comes to the crunch
Looking good's a state of mind
State of mind don't look behind you
State of mind or you'll be dead
State of mind may I remind you
Bomb the Bass...rock this place!
What is he like?
What's he like anyway?
Yo' man what do you expect the guy's a gigolo man
You know I mean?

No moneyman can win my love
It's sweetness that I'm thinking of.
We always hang in a Buffalo Stance
We do the dive every time we dance
I'll give you love baby not romance
I'll make a move nothing left to chance
So don't you get fresh with me

No moneyman can win my love
It's sweetness that I'm thinking of.
We always hang in a Buffalo Stance
We do the dive every time we dance
I'll give you love baby not romance
I'll make a move nothing left to chance
So don't you get fresh with me

Wind on my face, sound in my ears
Water from my eyes, and you on my mind
As I sink, diving down deep, deeper into your soul

No moneyman can win my love
It's sweetness that I'm thinking of.
We always hang in a Buffalo Stance
We do the dive every time we dance
I'll give you love baby not romance
I'll make a move nothing left to chance
So don't you get fresh with me

Manchild

OK, you're on your own, it's late
Your girlfriend is on another date with the hero in your dream
Turn around, ask yourself. So, you think you're gonna win this time Manchild?

Is it the pain of the drinking
Or the Sunday sinking feeling
The car never seems to work
When it's late your girlfriend's on a date
And the hero with her in your dream
In your sleep it seemed to like you
Turn around and ask yourself
Turn around ask yourself

Manchild, will you ever win
Manchild, look at the state you're in

Could you go undercover
And sell your brand new lover (could you)
Be someone else for a night
Maybe someone else will love you
You sell your soul for a tacky song
Like the one you hear on the radio
Turn around ask yourself
Turn around and ask yourself

Manchild, will you ever win
Manchild, look at the state you're in
Manchild, he will make you cry
Manchild, Manchild, Manchild

From Monday down to Friday
You're working on another man's car
Or is it in the factory?
It doesn't matter where you are

Just turn around and ask yourself is this communication
Accentuate the positive and give some illustration
See Manchild, you're no one, you turn the microphone on
Control communication when I'm kickin' it and so on
To the point that I need, the air that I breathe
Into an audience that's waiting and ecstatic to receive
For the meantime another mean rhyme, I keep on sayin' it
I know what the time is the crowd will keep playing it
Through the speaker boxes loud's my diagnosis
'Cause I believe in miracles and words in heavy doses.
Enough R-E-S-P-E and C-T
Respect yourself express no stress the mike is easy
Just believe that all you need is the air that you breathe.
Turn around ask yourself

Manchild, will you ever win
Manchild, look at the state you're in
Manchild, he will make you cry
Manchild, Manchild, Manchild
He's the apple of your eye

Once bitten twice shy, why don't you bite me again
Just take it in the right and go tell your friend
Are you ready for the words I turn the microphone on
A figure of speech to reach you at the back and so on
The style I'm stimulating dance floors
Raise your body temperature now and
This demands for power in the amp you know louds my diagnosis
'Cause I believe in miracles and words in heavy doses

Kisses On The Wind

Down this wild street walks
Walks a child with no trace
Of ever being as young as her sister is
A local neighborhood crush the boys would hide out and watch
Her hanging washing on the line all the time

More like a woman she talks like one
She was the first girl, she was the first girl
To turn the boys on
Boys boys
Wrapped around her finger
So young
Making love was only dreaming
This girl she's got another story
When they are gone she blows them kisses on the wind

At the corner shop half way down the block
All the radios pumping to the way she walks
Past the fly boy's art where her name's engraved
Sweet liberty is what it says

More like a woman she talks like one
She was the first girl, she was the first girl
To turn the boys on
Boys boys
Wrapped around her finger
So young
Making love was only dreaming
This girl she's got another story
When they are gone she blows them kisses on the wind

The price of puberty's got
A way of showing
It doesn't come in easy stages
Her mother's face in the pot
She won't ever leave it
She needs a bell to ring the changes

More like a woman she talks like one
She was the first girl, she was the first girl
To turn the boys on
Boys boys
Wrapped around her finger
So young
Making love was only dreaming
This girl she's got another story
When they are gone she blows them kisses on the wind

Inna City Mamma

New York
Just like I pictured it
Skyscrapers and everything
Inna city love, you crushed me into a pulp
I trusted you

When I loved you from a distance
And your skyline made me a promise
In my safe world to be somebody
In your city to own your streets
Where I'd strut covered in money
Shattered dreams. It ain't funny

Now I look at you with tears in my eyes
The good the bad the ugly
As I start to cry I search for the sky
Taste the breeze and watch a block of docking clouds
They're coming

Inna City Mamma
You bore another child to be victim of
Your cold blooded ways
Inna city love
From the gutter
So destructive when you sing your blues

I want to love you baby
I don't mean maybe baby, but I need everything you got
You can't break your promise

I'm inna city hunger, you think you're tough I'm stronger
If you're weak I'll eat you up
I'm gonna touch you where you've never been touched before
And by your spine I'll bruise your veins and touch your very core
Let my concrete be your red carpet
My shooting galleries your personal starship
Give me all your dreams, this city loves you

Use my roots to deliver your body
Under my skies where you make your money
You rejected love, but this city loves you

Inna City Mamma
You bore another child to be victim of
Your cold blooded ways
Inna city love
From the gutter
So destructive when you sing your blues

Inna city love, inna city mamma, inna city love
You hurt me, real bad, inna city love
You meant to love me and you cut me up into too many little pieces
But I wanna love you
I trusted you and you crushed me into a pulp
Inna city mamma

Don't be messing with our future - black babies, white babies,
Quarter Puerto Ricans, two sixths Chinese,
any combination you could possibly imagine,
but this important as the ground We walk on, people are people you know what I mean,
Even the baby with a portaphone
attached to its' buggy Pushed by a clone
and the black market baby that unwanted baby.
For 50,000 it belonged to the rich
well he didn't like his face,
She said it didn't matter

Sometimes and mess on your clothes that you worry about
Whether it's really worth the sacrifices that we all have to make
no matter how rich or poor

Push push push, in the bush down on your knees with the birds and bees

no matter how rich or poor
Why yes they're the next generation honey
You know, you know you see some people look at them right,
Old people, guys on the corner holding on, girls right walking
Arm in arm, spittin' on the pavement or whatever
And you wonder right if they've forgotten or if they just
Can't remember that they ever were small one time
'Cause god knows we got to save the babies right
'Cause if we don't save the babies
We ain't Gonna have a world to live in right
And god knows we love this world right
Ain't that, right so right.
Right right right... right uh uh...

Love Ghetto

I'm in a home run, I'm in a home run
On the last stretch,on the last stretch
I'm in a home run, I'm in a home run
On the left foot, with the right foot

I'm in a home run, I'm in a home run
On the last stretch,on the last stretch
I'm in a home run, I'm in a home run
On the left foot, with the right foot

You could have reached for me
Saved me from lying and I wanted to touch you
But I was stuck on my island
With a puddle of misunderstanding like a sea between us
When we anchored our love in the harbour seems so long ago
When we anchored our love in the harbour seems so long ago

I'm in a home run, I'm in a home run
On the last stretch,on the last stretch
I'm in a home run, I'm in a home run
On the left foot, with the right foot

Come rain come shine I'm leaving this love ghetto
Come rain come shine I'm leaving this love ghetto

Chasing you is haunting me, but I know that girl is lying
You upset my chemistry
Baby I'm sick of crying
Forever is only like the sky and the sea between us
When we anchored our love in the harbour seems so long ago
When we anchored our love in the harbour seems so long ago

Come rain come shine I'm leaving this love ghetto.
Come rain come shine I'm leaving this love ghetto.

I can't see a way every day we are the same
Turning round and round I pick you up and then you let me down
Never will I blame, never will I hate
I'll just have to go saving you from saving me.

I'm in a home run, I'm in a home run,
On the last stretch,on the last stretch.
I'm in a home run, I'm in a home run,
On the left foot, with the right foot.

Come rain come shine I'm leaving this love ghetto.
Come rain come shine I'm leaving this love ghetto.

I'm in a home run, I'm in a home run,
On the last stretch,on the last stretch.
I'm in a home run, I'm in a home run,
On the right foot, with my left foot.
On my right foot.

What your eyes tell you, your ears can be deceived
And the poor teacher can always be relieved
In the love ghetto
In the love ghetto

What your eyes tell you, your ears can be deceived
And the poor teacher can always be relieved
In the love ghetto
In the love ghetto

What your eyes tell you, your ears can be deceived
And the poor teacher can always be relieved
In the love ghetto
In the love ghetto

Heart

Out of control
MMM- stick it where it hurts
Girl, I'll be peeling you off the ceiling. That's right Hee Hee
Ladies and gentlemen- Neneh Cherry

Well you laughed at me right in my face
At the wrong time and in the wrong place
You turned around and said "I'm all shook up"
Said to me "I'm your sweet buttercup You're lying, you're lying,
Begging him to stay and crying
You're lying, you're lying, you're never satisfied

Heart, heart you can't break my heart
Hard, hard you think you're so hard
If you meant what you did it wouldn't been half as bad
But you did it in spite and that just isn't right

You took my man and didn't mean it
But you did it to hurt my feelings
What I should do is slap you in your face
You left me here with a pain below my waste
You lose a guy you move into the larder
You got no style, why don't you try a little harder
Chocolates, bananas, doughnuts and salami
Ain't gonna fit coz you're full of boloni

Heart, heart you can't break my heart
Hard, hard you think you're so hard
If you meant what you did it wouldn't been half as bad
But you did it in spite and that just isn't right

Only back alley rats take other peoples cats
And then strike back, that isn't where I'm at

Anyway, it's gonna get you anyway
Anyday, I'm gonna get you, get you

Heart, heart you can't break my heart
Hard, hard you think you're so hard
If you meant what you did it wouldn't been half as bad
But you did it in spite and that just isn't right

I thought you were my friend
God, you're just so digital girl
You're like one of those cabbage patch creatures - DJ

You're burning the candle at both ends
You're gonna feel the heat
If everything you do comes back to you
By now you'd be dead meat
You took my man and took his body
Strapped him to your bed just to have his baby
Everybody knows you're a phoney
You just want his alimony

Heart, heart you can't break my heart
Hard, hard you think you're so hard
If you meant what you did it wouldn't been half as bad
But you did it in spite and that just isn't right

Phoney Ladies

If you're gonna play with my soul
Why don't you take a look at your own first
No pain is lean enough, it's always filled with hurt
And those feelings, you know I felt them first and it hurts

So why don't you stop phoney ladies
In my face to cramp my freedom
Phoney ladies that mess me up
Calling names to cramp my freedom
And you don't even wanna see them
Calling names to cramp my freedom
Phoney ladies that mess me up
Nobody's gonna grab my freedom
Nobody's gonna mess me up

You becoming a victim of the game
Don't you forget I'm your sister and your friend too
The way you treat me will put this house to shame
Your secret conversations put you in the frame
In the frame

So why don't you stop phoney ladies
In my face to cramp my freedom
Phoney ladies that mess me up
Calling names to cramp my freedom
And you don't even wanna see them
Calling names to cramp my freedom
Phoney ladies that mess me up
Nobody's gonna grab my freedom
Nobody's gonna mess me up

No money money money can buy what we've got
No money money money can buy what we've got
No money money money can buy what we've got
No money money money can buy what we've got

You're playing games
trying to make me jealous
It'll never save us now

So why don't you stop calling ladies
In my face to cramp my freedom
Phoney ladies that mess me up
Calling names to cramp my freedom
And you don't even wanna see them
Calling ladies to cramp my freedom
Phoney ladies that mess me up
Nobody's gonna grab my freedom
Nobody's gonna mess me up...

Outré Risqué Locomotive

When you dance all night giving it all you got,
And you cover me in your body sweat
Like liquid honey, your kiss is so sweet
You're my fantasy.
Oh won't you stay with me.

You're driving me wild.
You're driving me crazy
Baby,
You are outre risque locomotive, driving me crazy.
Baby baby,
You're a super static automative, crazy or lazy.

I know the flesh is weak,
I pray my soul to keep providing me with dignity.
My body's clean but my mind is so bad
If you want some of this
You've got to be my man, don't you see.

You're driving me wild.
You're driving me crazy (baby)
Baby,
You are outre risque locomotive, driving me crazy.
Baby, baby,

Hey boy your love is kicking

I got an obsession and you know that's you
Punping in my body, driving me crazy
Ina dry land you're like an oasis
Making me hot, making me lazy - you amaze me.

So you be the train and I'll be the track
You turn me into a mono maniac
There ain't no stopping me when I go off
I don't show off, I need to cool off
My body's pullin' me in each and everyday
Coca cola kool aid wet my whistle baby, baby, baby

Everyone's looking for a true love
Everyone's looking for a true love
For the true love

Baby,
You are outre risque locomotive, driving me crazy.
Baby, baby,
You're a super static automative, crazy or lazy.

I make sure to preserve what I have
My body's clean but my mind is bad
You know some girls and boys it's sad
Lost their love and all they had
Layin' layin' down all the time
Layin' layin' down on the ground
Being better known as a doormat
Hey what kinda life is that
So climb into my head
Let's do the dirty
You wanna go to bed
Don't get shirty
The answer is no, 'cause your love is dope
Can't you see it's not that I won't, just wait, just wait

Baby,
You are outre risque locomotive, driving me crazy.
Baby, baby,
You're a super static automative, crazy or lazy.

Baby,
You are outre risque locomotive, driving me crazy.
Baby, baby,
You're a super static automative, crazy or lazy...

So Here I Come

I can see this picture of myself
In a green dress I felt lost
The first time I went to school
I was 4 feet 2, 6 feet scared and so distressed
This dress was green, I was the best dressed
I'd ever been, first day at school
I said teacher teacher I know my ABC's
I want to read and write, I want to understand
Why the sky never ends and why the sky is blue
And not white - right
But when I spoke my heart broke
'Cause it was plain to see that school
Would never be the picture for my fantasy

I know where I'm going and where I'm coming from
So here I come, so here I come
I know where I'm going and where I'm coming from
So here I come, so here I come

Slowly I came to discover
Time, heals, time feels so young
When you're having fun
At 13 my kiss was sweet and not deep
Covered in blush kiss 'n tell
My lips were deep red and shiny as hell
In my stairwell kiss "n" love discovered me
Undercover my fantasy my first kiss hit and miss
He wasn't impressed 'cause I wouldn't get undressed
Wrote my name on the wall - my hair was pressed
He had blue balls

If you want to rock you've got to roll it
If you gonna live you've got to show it
And if you're gonna do it, you got to do it right - don't you know it

I know where I'm going and where I'm coming from
So here I come, so here I come
I know where I'm going and where I'm coming from
So here I come, so here I come

On the rooftops I seen panties drop
And thru the windows behind the screens
In the red light after a fight love was made
Love was saved
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 in hell just to go straight to heaven
I might have been lost but now I'm found
I got my two feet on the ground

I know where I'm going and where I'm coming from
So here I come, so here I come
I know where I'm going and where I'm coming from
So here I come, so here I come

I know where I'm going and where I'm coming from
So here I come, so here I come
I know where I'm going and where I'm coming from
So here I come, so here I come...

My Bitch

When you turn around baby,
I'll be watching you,
I can see through you,
maybe then you'll see,
that I ain't playing.
I'm to be taken seriously.
you know what I'm saying?.
and so the story goes.

one night when I was shaking,
and I definately wasn't faking,
I was lost in a trance,
doing my own dance,
my girls on my side,
were concentrating on the music playing,
and the speakers vibrating,
I shut my eyes, and the next thing I knew,
all I could smell was leather and brute,
imposing on my groove, standing on my side,
and licking your lips, and rocking your thighs,
I wanted to die laughing, at your serious,
I've come to save you expression,
but I held my breath and said who are you?


Baby, my name is Drew,
I'm gonna make you my bitch,
maximum tender,
feminine gender,
come on baby it's time to surrender,
I'm Drew,

(So what you gonna go)


I just want to get into you,
hey bitch don't be so uptight,
we can make a date through tonight,
and then before hell breaks loose,
I'll just turn up the juice.


I say:
Hey all you people my name is mr smalls,
and some of the girls are saying I am the one with the greatest heart,
no matter where I go (gimme a break) no matter who i show
and I'm mr smalls


(Is that right, wait now),
I stomped this joint from top to toe,
I found nothing but half pint two bit guys,
acting out the parts, who might have been charming,
some are in a movie being batman and robin,
it's not the way you look, cause you ain't half bad,
it's the way you act that makes me sad,
you know you think you're finger licking and that's the problem,
looking rightin the mirror ain't gonna solve it,
thats something special deep inside,
called heart and soul might give you style,
all that time you sent looking at yourself,
you're so transparent,
it makes me sick

Baby you said I'm vain,
but i've got so much to gain,
for instance if i had you,
here's what i would do,
dine you by candlelight,
hold you baby all through the night,
and the love that i give to you
will be cooking like your mama's stew


I say:
Hey all you people,
(sorry?)
my name is mr. smalls
(I didn't hear that!)
and some of the girls are saying
I am the one with the greatest heart
(the greatest what?)
everywhere I go, no matter who show,
(don't try me)
I'm mr. smalls

Give me some more

I ain't impressed,
I ain't getting undressed just yet,
I'm saving my personal stash,
for a male who can handle me with care,
I don't beat around the bush,
cruise a little, wicked and slow,
I can't take none of that degenerate stuff,
a little discretion can melt me like butter,
and I'll give you sweet love,
'til you cry to your mother,
we can wear out the backbone in my couch,
you care where i am, what I'm about,
I'm not about to change, more or less,
I know what's morally right for me,
there are certain conditions you see


Hey all you people,
my name is mr. smalls,
and some of the girls are saying I'm the one with the greatest heart,
everywhere i go,
no matter who I show,
and I'm mr. smalls

Hey all you people,

(I've heard everything this is tops)

Hey Drew why is it you got to treat ladies like they were hanging off a meat hook, that's you problem man?
My problem, my problem is you got an attitude!
Yeah and you know what you leave us with...

...feminine itch
Ah that's cool! I can dig that, you're a bitch baby!
I ain't gonna be your bitch!

Ah come on baby...
Forget it you're tired!

That's cool, I'll pay the rent! Next week now baby, we can do this like, Brutis...
I'm going on my own, see you later honey, later, much much much much much much later.
??? (Well I might give you a ring)

Where you from Gilly G
Birmingham
Aaah! well that's all right then
Let's be friends, how many of us have them
Let's be friends

Homebrew

Sassy

So sassy, so sassy
So sassy, so sassy...

Fellas got to give me the most respect
‘Cause you know I don't like to waste my time
So don't give me that
I'm laying down I sizzle slow
I might be tripping but I do my thing
I play the games like monkey in the middle
Not piece by piece like a puzzle we come together
Guru

"You never seen a girl like this before
Because she's so sassy completely secure
Check out the way she walks and talks
She's got the force to knock it out the box
Now I know this lady for some time
Yes of course she's fine
The only one of her kind, buss it
The lady has so much pazzaz
If you step to her wrong you're getting played the jazz

Conversations
Don't say the most
Along the way
I've heard some boasting

I roll my dice and take what comes
Numbers, numbers, numbers
As I hang with my chums
I count my lucky days 'cause I know when they come
If you're looking for a ride boy watch me run
All the way to China
Or just between peace and man

Oh yes she's nifty-hefty
The beat plays on
She's about to rip the roof from
Dusk to dawn
So when you see lady for must give her props
And let the champagne flowing until the music stop
I'm a man of my time she's a woman of hers to
Old fashioned but still stashing a few
New styles for roughneck rude
So I'm gonna stuff it in your face like gourmet food

And hooked like a picture and look to the wall
And hanging like Picasso seems so tall
Voluptuous I had a choice to be monogamous
Me and my baby forgot to check what day it was
Under the covers kissing the way it was
Freshly squeezed so pure and natural
Unique in character and this is factual

So sassy, so sassy
So sassy, so sassy...

Money Love

With the power that some lovin' can bring
Makes the mountain high stacks of money and things
That I need change
And fade away sometimes

When I look in the mirror
I see a little clearer
I am what I am
And you are you too
Do you like what you see
Do you like yourself

Money love and gold payments
We spend our lives thinking they are saviors
Money talks but love is for real
And you know that

Then a picture comes into my mind
Everybody knows you need some money sometimes
Could it be that we need lovin' to survive

So look into my eyes
I won't tell you lies
Who do you see
Do you see yourself
Do you like what you see
Do you like yourself

Money love and gold payments
We spend our lives thinking they are saviors
Money talks but love is for real
And you know that

So how do we drink in a sinking ship
How do we float in a sinking boat
How do we rock when the rock is rollin'
Give me a float & keep the moolah rollin'

Talking about talking about talking about money
Nothing's for free in the land of milk'n honey
Got a foot on the bridge over troubled water
A credit cards cool but I'll settle for a quarter

Move With Me

Into a world I plunge thru my headphones, escape into the streetlight
I begin to believe in destiny when my surroundings in rhythm with me
I'm just a grain of sand walking in a sea of people
I look around me and my name is just someone
For a moment in time I belong
Where my heart beats the fear is gone like destiny

So move with me I'm strong enough to be weak in your arms
Move with me I'm strong enough to be real in your arms

Whispering as I was driving quietly the car was rolling like a bullet
I was feeling the speed moving me faster. Addicted to the rhythm on my ghetto blaster
That's me supposing that the clarity of thought
Is clear enough to think it's real enough to touch
The wind on me got me tripping can I keep you next to me
Till the end of the world

So move with me I'm strong enough to be weak in your arms
Move with me I'm strong enough to be real in your arms
So move with me I'm strong enough to be weak in your arms
Move with me I'm strong enough to be real in your arms

Like the joker on the pile never coming or going
The colour of my true cards was showing
Keeping in touch with an idea that I been growing
Trust trust I must trust with my head on my chest
I rest with the rest of the restless

So move with me I'm strong enough to be weak in your arms
Move with me I'm strong enough to be real in your arms

I Ain't Gone Under Yet

I'm just another voice from the street
And since it's my choice, I feel that I must speak
Now I know that you won't listen to little me
But I can't rest unless I get this off my chest
See
The city's my home the streets where I roam
But still I leave the drugs and violence alone

And so I try to stay in the right frame of mind
Although I know some people who might say that I'm
Crazy and lazy for not breakin' out
But the city has soul and that's what I'm about

I have an appetite that must be fed
No longer blind and being led
The of freedom that you can buy
My bank won't lend me yet
But still I can get by--and even smile
So don't judge me by the colour of my skin
My blood runs as deep as your runs red
Which takes me out of the rap

The choice is mine
With my joy and pain inside
And I ain't gone under yet!

See bodies with souls living in the street
No one wants to live with nothing to eat
But to climb over living people and fee that they brought in on themselves
'Cause they lazy or would rather steal is a mystery

So don't judge me by the colour of my skin
My blood runs as deep as your runs red
Which takes me out of the verse

The choice is mine
With my joy and pain inside
And I ain't gone under yet!

Your under is my over I've never seen your over yet
But don't forget
I ain't gone under yet! 4X

I don't steal I don't run tricks or scams
'Cause I'm a strong young woman yes I know who I am
But sometimes it's so hard to get by
Touch circumstances make me want to get high
But I don't go too far cause that ain't my style
So why don't you come live next to me for a while

Twisted

I think I could give myself up to you
Cause you pushed your way thru my attitude
But a taste of life on the tip of my tongue
Won't let me forget. It just reminds me
Of all the things I've been fed
And all the magazines that I've read
I'm suspicious of what you said

How long can we be this way
How long can we live this way
Will twisted tongues bring us down
Or the twisted world we're living in
Or am I the one that's twisted too
Thinking we'll make it thru

Lipstick smiles bring me worries
When I imagine you with somebody else
That's when I know you got me twisted baby
Oh these wicked jealousies could bring us down
Every woman to herself
Every man is his own
When I'm with you the feeling's stronger
I wonder

How Long can we be this way
How long can we live this way...

The thought of saying I'll give you everything I got
Seems so empty cause it's stereotype
To protect my sanity

How Long can we be this way
How long can we live this way...

Buddy X

Call yourself a family man
Talking 'bout the families plan
To bring the sweet talk deep and down
Works better than an average pick up line
You put your woman out to pasture
On the promises you gave her last year
Peace and love is on your head
And the grass is greener playing 'round
Your family seed is what you spread

Buddy my friend
Who you think you fooling
Buddy my friend
And what about your woman
Buddy my friend
Who you think you fooling
Buddy my friend

I don't care what you do
But there's a hypocrite that lives in you
Cause if your woman gave her love
In the same way that you do
You'd feel a-way
You know you would

Buddy my friend
Who you think you fooling
Buddy my friend
And what about your woman
Buddy my friend
Who you think you fooling
Buddy my friend

Buddy my friend
Treat her that way
And you'll be X-D soon
Buddy X-D soon

Somedays

Wake up without a blink
To an even pace where nothing moves
Except the pressure from a funky Saturday
Dropping like bricks on my head
Or over the milky way
Starlit electric beams had only just touched me
I must have dreamt myself astray
The only milky way I have is in the middle of the day

Somedays are better than somedays
Good Sundays are better than somedays
Today I'd even take a bad Monday
'Cause this Sunday's a pure pressure inside of me

Danced till my feet were blue
To erase the thoughts I just remember you
Tears lost in the turn of the years
Return on days like this
Kissing in the sunrays
I knew that it was Sunday
'Cause my memory's like blueprint in my head

Somedays are better than somedays
Good Sundays are better than somedays
Today I'd even take a bad Monday
'Cause this Sunday's a pure pressure inside of me

Give me grits and eggs give me ham and bacon
And a pancake with some maple syrup
'Cause it is Sunday

Trout

You can find some time to be someone
Like a valentine for a lonely soul
You can treat me like a fool
And hate

Some love brings me down
Some love turns me 'round and 'round
And 'round and 'round
And round and round and round and round and round

Is it something that I said
Is it something that I did
Is it something that I, that I got in my head
Laying in my bed is so real
'Cause I know what I feel
But together we stand and together we lay
(Hey listen to the voice of experience)
This is how I live tomorrow and today
(Listen to the voice of experience)
That's how I live
(Stop the beat. Listen to the melody)
Round and round and round and round
(Huh, yeah I know when I got the feeling)

A feeling of love knocking on my door
First there was fifty and then there was more
What a bore then there was none
Now there's one 'cause I'm a lucky one

Feelings of love I've got feelings of affection
Come on and give it to me give it with protection
There's no time we're out of luck
The law says we can't talk about A

'Round and 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round

But I need some S-E-X-E-D-U-C-A-T-I-O-N, yeah
Sex education
For the people y'all

Parents and teachers get together get cool
Children need to learn about sex in school
Children need to learn about sex in school
You think they don't do it?
Don't get fooled

Parents don't turn your back on the pack
Teachers want to teach but the law says whack
Don't let your kid get caught without a jimmy hat
And that's just the start
Take it to the heart of the matter
Talk about it, talk about it

Sister sister, kissing by the tree
Ripe right for picking something sweet
Brother brother what's it gonna be
K-I-S-S-I-N-G
Teacher, teacher, teacher teach us S-E-X
Teach it to us stupid without the FX
Teacher teach us with your ABCs
Rollin' on the alphabet I'm gonna
Get to Z.

'Round and 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round

Peace in mind

I've got a little piece of mind
From the comfort of a stranger
Like vulture love does
We took from each other
Justify desire with a verdict that comes empty
When we exist
In the air that we breathe in

Acoustic
Loneliness
Incidental
Relationships

Nothing in this time is done
With peace in mind
So I claim a piece of this world
To get peace in mind from
Memories I took to heart
That left me colour-blind
So I'm taking daily bread and wine
To keep me cool inside

I had a home
Inside of me

Acoustic
Acoustic loneliness

I knew a young girl by the name of Suzie
Now she sleeps with her arm on a uzi
Cause she sleeps giving up what she's got for free
Acoustically trained in love
She talks in mono monologues

Nothing in this time is done
With peace in mind
So I claim a piece of this world
To get peace in mind from
Memories I took to heart
That left me colour-blind
So I'm taking daily bread and wine
To keep me cool inside

Tomorrow's promises
They have all just past away
They slip through my fingers
Now their all
Just history

Nothing in this time is done
With peace in mind
So I claim a piece of this world
To get peace in mind from
Memories I took to heart
That left me colour-blind
So I'm taking daily bread and wine
To keep me cool inside

Nothing in this time is done
With peace in mind
So I claim a piece of this world
To get peace in mind from
Memories I took to heart
That left me colour-blind
So I'm taking daily bread and wine
To keep me cool inside

Keep me cool inside
Like the wind on me
My memories
Coming to me
Come on honey
Ah baby
Let's take it slow
Let's some bread
Let's take some wine
Let's spend some time

Red Paint

On a table lies the crust of what he
Had and just leaves behind
As I put bread down on the list of things
That I had to buy
By the store leaves your mountain bike
You on the floor still looking hard core
The colour is read under my show
And the friend is gone who put a hole
In you

Insensitivity took a hold of me
And I felt it colour me blue inside
And I left taking a part of you
Like red red paint on the sole
Of my shoe nothing to do with
Common sense or

Sensitivity
I'm feeling cold
Like concrete
Your dignity's reflecting
In the way I feel it

Open minded. The thoughts are clear
From feeling regardless. Heart beats
With pain
You were oh so happy just the other day
Now heartbeats with pain took it all away

The cradle did rock for you too
Looking out from the inside
While life turns to blue
Watching all the glass faces
Leave their red red footprints
On our

Sensitivity
I'm feeling cold
Like concrete
Your dignity's reflecting
In the way I feel it

By the store lays your mountain bike
You on the floor no more hard core
The colour was red under my shoe
And the friend has gone
Who put a whole in you

Guided by the blue light that
Takes you away I'm on my way home

Guided by the blue light

That takes you away
I'm on my way home

Guided by the blue light
I'm on my way home...

 

Man

Woman

You gotta be fortunate
You gotta be lucky now
I was just sitting here
Thinking good and bad
But I'm the kinda woman
That was built to last
They tried erasing me
But they couldn't wipe out my past
To save my child
I'd rather go hungry
I got all of Ethiopia
Inside of me
And my blood flows
Through every man
In this godless land
That delivered me
I've cried so many tears even the blind can see

This is a woman's world
This is my world
This is a woman's world
For this man's girl
There ain't a woman in this worl
Not a woman or a little girl
That can't deliver love
In a man's world

I've born and I've bread.
I've cleaned and I've fed.
And for my healing wits
I've been called a witch.
I've crackled in the fire
And been called a liar.
I've died so many times
I'm only just coming to life.

This is a woman's world
This is my world
This is a woman's world
For this man's girl
There ain't a woman in this worl
Not a woman or a little girl
That can't deliver love
In a man's world

My blood flows
Through every man and every child
In this godless land
That delivered me
I cried so many tears even the blind can see

This is a woman's world
This is my world
This is a woman's world
For this man's girl
There ain't a woman in this worl
Not a woman or a little girl
That can't deliver love
In a man's world

Feel it

Luck has been on your side boy,
And life is what you made it
As you've done what you can do
People say
People say that your the only one
Time keeps slipping thru the hour class
You're living in the future boy
But there something inside
Something to hide
In too much pride
Maybe you cried
Wondering why
You know you've got to feel it
Feel it over you, under you
Talking to your little sister now
Tell her how you turned to liquid love
Don't get beaten by the tide boy
You've got so much to give of yourself
Some of the things you said
Been living in your head you know
And what you feel
Are just trade marks of your suffering
But you're looking for a reason for everything
'Coz you know that there has to be something in
Every little thing that you're
Feeling feeling feeling feeling, over you
Voices on your shoulder
Pounding in your temple
Like a bullet in your head
Waiting for release
Your simplistic measures
Your holistic treasures
What you want and what you need
What you feel in your dreams
Been around and fought a lot of wars
Before you could walk
But then again you walked
A lot of miles before you could talk
And now you know that you feel it
What you gonna
Can you can you
Feel it, feel it, feel it
Over you,
Can you can you feel it
Feel it, feel it, over you
Can you can you feel it
Feel it ...

Hornbeam

Hard black soil called the chernozem
Driving uptown with some per diems
Won't somebody check the hem
Falling down this dress again
Sporting hot jeans on the butt again
Got to get home before the Mayhem
Won't somebody check the tide
Before we run and hide again
Got a hornbeam growing in the garden
Always climbing the tree is the morphine
Got a view of the love and I'm chillin'
Got a view of the hem of the horizon
Stole the wheel off a car called a Porsche
While I was chewing the fat that disturbs me
It's always there because
We play the game the way we are
I got a view on outer space paparrazi
It's always there cause I know that they watch me
I bathe away in darkness
All because I'm paranoid
Got a hornbeam growing in the garden
Always climbing the tree is the morphine
Got a view of the love and I'm chillin'
Got a view of the hem of the horizon
Won't you
Unbutton my stuff
Won't you
Come and zip me up
Won't you
Unbutton my stuff
Won't you
Come and zip me up
Chauvinistic femme come arousing
Got a groove in the hem of your hygiene
Won't somebody break my boundary
Or leave that femme for another day
I like a brain and I like my bimbo
I like 'em vain let 'em lick my limbo
The boldest kiss the mayhem
Slipping down the waterside
Mum & Dad are feeling kind of hurt
To get me back they got to get me first
Am I guilty quench my thirst
Spill my wine and french I quim
Got a hornbeam growing in the garden
Always climbing the tree is the morphine
Got a view of the love and I'm chillin'
Got a view of the hem of the horizon
Won't you
Unbutton my stuff
Won't you
Come and zip me up
Won't you
Unbutton my stuff
Won't you
Come and zip me up

Trouble man

I've come up hard baby
And now I'm cool
Didn't make it sugar
Playing by the rules
I've come up hard baby
But now I'm fine.
In checking trouble sugar
Moving down the line
I've come up hard baby
But that's ok
'Coz trouble man
Don't get in my way
I've come up hard baby
I've been for real
Gonna keep on moving
Gonna go to town

Come up and get down
There's only three things that's for sure
Taxes death and trouble
This I know baby
Oh I've come up hard baby
With a troubled mind
But then I've got my share
Of what's mine

They dig my directions,
What people say
That's ok
They don't bother me
I'm ready to make it
Don't care what the weather
Don't care about no trouble
Got myself together
Got the kind of protection
It's all around me
I've come up hard but now I'm cool
I didn't make it baby
Playing by the rules
Oh I've come up hard baby
But that's Ok
'Coz trouble man

Roughneck and rudeness,

For the sword and the stone
Bad to the bone

With your mouthful
The way you park on the sidewalk
The way you are in the car

As the morning drops
And the way you change from playing cup
When you force me to stop

Bang my feet chain my hands
And ignore my demands
Kiss my dirty feet

Laugh at my jokes ahah

Beastiality

A bit of friendly beastiality
With the stockings that I tied you up so easily
As the window breaks the window pain
Puts the hand in to the till to get some pretty change.
What love
What hate
Could reach the point of no return
What love
What hate
Could reach the point
Take you down into a dead end lane
Make me walk on broken glass
And let my liquid make petal coloured moves
Removes the lipstick stains that still remain
Am I still the same
What love
What hate
Could reach the point of no return
What love
What hate
Could reach the point
As I take you through the bedroom door
You can be my mother
You can be my whore
Take a lesson in geography
Wash me down in pepsi
Sweet obsess possess me
What love
What hate
Could reach the point of no return
What love
What hate
Could reach the point
What love
What hate
Could reach the point of no return
What love
What hate

Carry me

You fed the fire all my letters
Like you fed me french fries
And in my dead mouth
Lies the taste that's like the
Look in your dead eyes
Don't give me your expression
Don't even swim with me
I've got the nerve to tell you
You'll never live thru me
Carry me carry me carry me
I wanna go home
Carry me bury me
I wanna go home
Carry me carry me carry me
I wanna go home
Carry me bury me
I wanna go home
And like a witness that has
Come to be that's my expression
And though I live through your eyes
I've just lived in one dimension
You wanna let off a gun
Press one hard be hard on
I wonder is your wisdom
Telling you'll never get to you
Carry me carry me carry me
I wanna go home
Carry me bury me
I wanna go home
Carry me carry me carry me
I wanna go home
Carry me bury me
I wanna go home
I gave you satisfaction
It's murder here when I'm round
So keep my felt tip impressions and bury me
Never to be found
Carry me carry me carry me
I wanna go home
Carry me bury me
I wanna go home
Carry me bury me carry me
I wanna go home
Carry me bury me
I wanna go home
Carry me, bury me
I wanna go home now

Bury me yeah

Bury me carry me
Carry me bury me
I wanna go home

Together now

Into the morning
Got me through the night
I've seen the light
I see the light
I live of what I need
I've got greed
I've been a sinner for as long as I know
So help me understand
The little that I know
Shadow dancing with my spirit
Got to face your demon on your own
Take my body and put it through the dust
I've been buried in the crust
Together now
So help me understand
The little that I know
Together now, together now
It's us now, It's us now
And there's them, and there's them
And should we start again
Together now, together now
It's us now, it's us now...
The descendants of Christ
And it's you
Will you help me I'm confused
What you gonna do
With the little that I know
With the little that I got
We're together now, we're together
It's us now
And there's them, and there's them
And should we start again
Together now, together now
It's us now, it's us now...

Everything

Everything, anything I see
Anything, everything I feel
Everyday anytime I know
Anything everyone has to go
Champagne lingers in my glass
The party's over
I see my reflection, sipping
And it reminds me
I'd like to see you
Having more fun
If you can
I look at you
But it's me I see
It's everything I know ( it's me I see )
It's everything I feel ( it's me I see )
It's everything and everyone around me that I see
Everything is real
Everything I feel
In my mirror
I see myself
In that mirror
Inside myself
Sometimes I feel it coming to me
Thinking of you when I'm looking at my body
I can touch myself with my own understanding
My resolution to be broken
That I see now
And it's me I see
It's everything I know ( it's me I see )
It's everything I feel ( it's me I see )
And it's everything and everyone around me that I know
Everything is real
Everything I feel
No real solutions
In clipping from the past
I see my reflection at last
Books full of pictures
Remembering the blasts
Times consequences
Makes me go fast
And it's me I see
And It's everywhere I go
It's me I see
It's everything I see ( it's me I see )
And it's everywhere I go Yeah ( it's me I see )
It's everything I feel ( it's me I see )
And it's everywhere I go ( it's me I see )
It's everything I feel ( it's me I see )
And it's everything and everyone around me that I love
Everything is real
Everything I feel

Blank Project

Across the Water

To the fickle let it drop
We have the power to sustain
Like the motor needs the food
To bring more power to our brain

Now we bought it back
So let me make it plain
Since our mother's gone
It always seems to rain

And the booze, and the friends and the party never ends
No excuse for behavior than no one can defend
We reflect in the quiet
Times inside our heads
And give thanks from our children
Tucked up sweetly in their beds
Inside their heads
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
Trickling water dripping down
Slow like some rivers without a sound
Passed many times since you were at my side
I'm still here, but I keep you deep inside

With my hands across the water
With my two feet in the sea
My fear is for my daughters
But will God wash over me

Take our lambs off to the slaughter
Take their lives so perfectly
Like your bricks are filled with mortar
Cast your wisdom to the brede

Cracks and fault lines
New York City talks to me
Slow like some re-runs on our mother's tv
New York City, she speaks to me in tongues
Keeps me to her breast, pumps air into my lungs

With my hands across the water
With my two feet in the sea
My fear is for my daughters
But will God wash over me

Take our lambs off to the slaughter
Take their lives so perfectly
Like your bricks are filled with mortar
Cast your wisdom to debris

With my hands across the water
With my two feet in the sea
My fear is for my daughters
But will God wash over me

Take our lambs off to the slaughter
Take their lives so perfectly
Like your bricks are filled with mortar
Cast your wisdom to debris

Blank Project

I got a man, I love him so much
Sometimes I hate it, just can't let go
Together we stand, divided we fall
Driving me crazy, I need it all

On my 28th day, he is my victim
He is my saviour, he breaks my fall
The things that we say, all stacked in one pile
Stay fresh and good while upright I call

Too many times you come crawling, say sorry too late
Paper cup regrets will not stick, better change
Too many times you come crawling, say sorry too late
Papercup regrets will not stick, better change

Need to be right, right to be wrong
Sometimes a loser, lost down the hall
Leave me alone, but don't leave me lonely
And please don't look now, can you see this
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
Does my ass look big in these new trousers
My ego won't let me, I forget
I feel so small, I hate you, I hate you
I love you, I love you, I love it all
I love it, I love it all

Too many times you come crawling, say sorry too late
Papercup regrets will not stick, better change
Too many times you come crawling, say sorry too late
Papercup regrets will not stick, better change

Oh I hate you
I hate you

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Husband and wife, leaking perfection
All kinds of fun, oceans of pride
We're super, why
We got protection
We got protection

Too many times you come crawling, say sorry too late
Papercup regrets will not stick, better change
Too many times you come crawling, say sorry too late
Papercup regrets will not stick, better change

Naked

Strip me naked and put me outside
Strip me naked and put me out to pasture
Multitasker keep your head above the water
Smell of any money keeps the wolves from the door

And there's the many with my taxes
It's the kinkiest of pricks now
Run a little faster
Make it go a little further

Maybe I can go far
Maybe I can catch you
Maybe I can make good
For the love of so many

Can we catch our own shadow
And if we can
Could we then
Go another twelve in the ring

Strip me naked and never tell me why
Strips me naked, my wings made of plaster
Life is going faster, like a bus it runs me over
No kind of beat can fill me up and make me whole now
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
I could run a little faster
Maybe I can catch God
Run a little further
Life could run me over

No sign of any money
But maybe I could make good
Maybe I can go far
For the love of so many

Can we catch our own shadow
And if we can
Could we then
Go another twelve in the ring

So there's the many with my taxes
They can be such pricks now
They're a little better
And go without this further

Maybe I can go far
Maybe I can catch you
I'm like a go-kart
Full of love for so many

Can we catch our own shadow
And if we can
Could we then
Go another twelve in the ring

Can we catch our own shadow
And if we can
Could we then
Go another twelve in the ring

I wanna know now, baby
Can we, baby
Another twelve
Rounds in the ring

Spit Three Times

I thought you were gone, out of my life
I'm not surprised, clever disguise
But you're like a demon, want to feed
Into satisfy real lies

Monkeys on my back
Holding me down
Black dogs in the corner
Looking up at me

I'm superstitious
Spit three times over my shoulder
I hit the ground hard
It's you
I got the fever in me

Sneak in the dark, snuck to my bed
Crawling my spine, time has gone by
Know how you hide, clever disguise
Little time flies, it's how I get by
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
But you're like an old friend or an enemy
Holding me down
Black dogs in the corner
Looking up at me

I'm superstitious
Spit three times over my shoulder
I hit the ground hard
It's you
I'm addicted to you

You're the fever, baby
I got the fever in me
You're addicted to me

How is it gonna go
Baby you know
You're the fever that's me

I'm superstitious
Spit three times over my shoulder
I hit the ground hard
It's you
I got the fever in me
It's you
Hit the ground hard
It's you
I'm addicted to you

You're the fever, baby
I got the fever in me
You're the fever that's me

How is it gonna go
Leave me alone
You're addicted to me

Leave me alone
Leave me alone
I'm addicted to you

Weightless

This mind is weak, my pulse is strong
Pushing weights, I must be doing it wrong
Getting paid I can't keep a penny long
My bank won't give me another loan
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
Moving in circles but I'm wasting away
Chasing my text still cast the late (?)

So I'm pulling at the purse strings
Spending money like it's going out of fashion
Keeps on dancing but I can't find my right moves
Still I'm weightless

Busy shrugging off the first thing
Dripping honey like a fool without a passion
Keep on dancing but I don't fit the right shoes
Am I weightless

Oh, out of my seat

Mind is weak, heart is strong
Take ?? but it takes too long
See my voice on the dictaphone
Service myself when I'm all alone

Give me a room and a personal key, girl (?)
When I hope you go to where the grass is greener

So I'm pulling at the purse strings
Spending money like it's going out of fashion
Keeps on dancing but I can't find my right moves
Still I'm weightless

Busy shrugging off the first thing
Dripping honey like a fool without a passion
Keep on dancing but I don't fit the right shoes
Am I weightless

Hold your breath, watch your step
Watch your step, hold your breath
'Cause it ain't over
Til the fat lady sings

Hold your breath, watch your step
Watch your step, hold your breath
'Cause it ain't all over
Til the fat lady sings

Weightless
Weightless
Still I'm weightless
Still I'm weightless

Cynical

Pulling all the weight to trick a path
Moves are some impervious at last
Good things comes to those who wait
I saw you when you were born here

I was in your love for so very long
And I can't save you
If I had to bring you back I think
By no means I could save you

Don't think I'm so cynical now
I've found my ground
We will prevent your system
Put it around
Don't think I'm so cynical now
I've found my sound
We will prevent your system

Pick up everything, recycle trash
Then minimize all my carbon ash
Footprint fingered on my ???
Instant strobe when we may own the night
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
I was in your love for so very long
And I can't save you
If I had to bring you back I think
By no means I could save you

Don't think I'm so cynical now
I've found my ground
We will prevent your ??, now
Put it around
Don't think I'm so cynical now
I've found my sound
We will prevent your system

I, I know what the art to go on is
Hard hard hard dry paints put on the canvass
Why are you waiting over there on the phone
Who you think is gonna call you
It's a mountain of relief up above you
Someone's gotta love you
Phone's gotta sing, pictures of indictments
Suck it up to ???
Just grease for your heart and food for your thoughts
And someone to uphold you
It's grab what you need or the living makes you bleed
I'm keeping it in order

Don't think I'm so cynical now
I've found my ground
We will prevent your system
Put it around
Don't think I'm so cynical now
I've found my sound
We will prevent your system

Don't think I'm so cynical now
I've found my ground
We will prevent your system

442

I was feeling younger
As the days were passing me by
All the feelings are all on the radar
When you're really wrong

You won't find a snitch where you go
'Cause the snakes will grow
And the colder the shoulders will show
Change your skin like clothes

When the doubt has finally spread
The will is getting off my hands (?)
When they have taken all they can
Then this will be the end of man

And we never close
Of the curl up your toes
All the bullshit that gets up your nose
And we never choose
Of the curl up your toes
All the horseshit is getting too close
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
Like birds of prey
We shed our feathers
Every single day
In every kind of weather

If we believe the rain
Has come to set you aside
Then we can take the pain
Of this there is no doubt

'Cause that is just the type of fear
That we are fed all through the years
??? appears
You try the blanket from our ears

And we never close
Of the curl up your toes
All the bullshit that gets up your nose
And we never chooseOf the curl up your toes
All the horseshit is getting too close

And we never close
Of the curl up your toes
All the bullshit that gets up your nose
And we never choose
Of the curl up your toes
All the horseshit is getting too close

Like birds of prey
Every single day
I was feeling younger
As the days
Passed me by
All the feelings are all on the radar
You won't find a snitch where you go
'Cause the snakes will grow

Out Of The Black

( ft. Robyn )

I'm skipping down the street
Just trying to mind my business
I've got my blinkers on
So bad stuff I can witness

I see the wolf packs congregating on the corners
Hiding their cutbacks while attend into the mourners

Tie our hands
Behind our backs
Wash your mouth
Face the pack
Out of the black
Out of the blue
I just want you to want it too

I'm Neneh, I'm complete
When all my kids are happy
I fear what's gone before
Will come right back and slap me
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
I'm Robyn on the microphone into the speaker
You know I'm not sick like that but I've got a fever

On our toes
To the black
From the red
We'll be back
Out of the black
Out of the blue
I just want you to want it too
These are the facts
And here is the news
We just want you to want it too

Spread my wings and take small sips river deepsin' planet
Spread my wings planet below life's got it roll on me

On our toes
To the black
From the red
We'll be back
Out of the black
Out of the blue
I just want you to want it too
These are the facts
And here is the news
We just want you to want it too

We just want you
To want it too
I want you
I want too
I want you
To want it too
To want it too
I want you want it too

Dossier

She was standing at the tail when he came up and gave her his number
That's not the start of the story 'cause it took him an age to do that
When she noticed this guy it kinda took her out of her slumber
He came in and turned round, went out, then he came back

Then he left, the moment passed, she soon forgot
The weeks went by, she didn't give him another thought
Until one day she reached a hand inside her coat
And found the number he had written on that note

All the way, dossier, offer is on the ceiling
(let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go)
Clap your hands, nod your head, got to love it with lovely day
(let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go)

See your head ???, like a thread out of it
(Slow down, reach down low, get low, get dark, baby drag your booty on the floor)
Making whips, fashion dreads, ???
(Slow down, reach down low, get low, get dark, baby drag your booty on the floor)
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
He stepped up to her and gave her a slip with his number
All humble and shy, this ??? guy went to speak
He asked her if she had a man in her life to encumber
A date with himself if she didn't think him a freak

What did she do
What did she think
What did she choose
She called him up
And arranged to meet
Wore her nice new shoes

All the way, dossier, offer is on the ceiling
(let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go)
Clap your hands, nod your head, got to love it with lovely day
(let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go)
See your head ???, like a thread out of it
(let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go)
Making whips, fashion dreads, ???
(Slow down, reach down low, get low, get dark, baby drag your booty on the floor)Like a knife, cut your life, throw the ???
(Slow down, reach down low, get low, get dark, baby drag your booty on the floor)

And now they meet every night beside their beds
And clean their teeth before they climb into their heads

All the way, dossier, offer is on the ceiling
(let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go)
Clap your hands, nod your head, got to love with a lovely day
(let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go)
See your head ???, like a thread out of it
(let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go)
Making whips, fashion dreads, ???
Like a knife, cut your life, throw the ???

Everything

Talk to me, talk to me...
Everything

I feel good but I feel a way
Walking down the street, lost my way
It's my reflection but what's my name
Every thought I had just runs away

Don't get hungry makes me angry
Agitated hungry, frustrated angry
Wet ugly paper sticking to my shoe
And then a crack smoking hussy getting in my way too

Got my fingers in my ears I can't hear you
What I don't hear, can't upset me
What I don't know I can't fear, can't upset me
Don't touch me, don't stress me
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
Everything is everything
Good things come to those who wait, they say
If everything is everything
Good things come to those who wait, they say

I can't hear with my right ear
I can't see shit with the left eye
Wracking out money, can't eat, can't rest
Doctor been telling me I got the stress

Got me in a room to get undressed
I got the right tools listen to my chest
Now I'm looking good I passed the test
Life is cool, life gives me stress

Got my fingers in my ears I can't hear you
What I don't hear, can't upset me
What I don't know I can't fear, can't upset me
Don't touch me, don't stress me

Everything is everything
Good things come to those who wait, they say
If everything is everything
Good things come to those who wait, they say

If everything is everything
Good things come to those who wait, they say
If everything is everything
Good things come to those who wait, they say

Shallow water Midget Mountain high
Beat me up, trust me I'll hold you down
In your filthy way singing me your victim's song
Dysfunctional deleted it long ago

Everything is everything
One tip, one tip
Good things come to those who wait
If everything is everything
I need it, I need it
Good things come to those who wait
Time is morphine and I'm bleeding
Always make me little
Lead me to shallow water, midget, mountain high
Beat me up, trust me, I'll hold you down
You filthy ways appeal to me
Dysfunctional
I don't want to know
I want it now, I want it now
I climb to the top
Dysfunctioning in life
I know here we go
Victimized
I can't hear you when you sing the victim's song
With the chorus I've deleted it long ago
Slippery slope
Everything
Everything is everything
One tip, one tip
Good things come to those who wait
If everything is everything
I need it, I need it
Good things come to those who wait
I want it, I want it
Good things come to those who wait
I need it, I need it
I need it, I need it
I need it, I need it
Yeah yeah...
Alright, yeah yeah..

Everything is everything
One tip, one tip
Good things come to those who wait
If everything is everything
I need it, I need it
Good things come to those who wait
Time is morphine

Bestiality

A bit of friendly bestiality
With the stockings that I tied you up so easily
As the window breaks the window pain
Puts the hand in to the till to get some pretty change.
What love
What hate
Could reach the point of no return
What love
What hate
Could reach the point
Take you down into a dead end lane
Make me walk on broken glass
And let my liquid make petal coloured moves
Removes the lipstick stains that still remain
Am I still the same
What love
What hate
Could reach the point of no return
What love
What hate
Could reach the point
As I take you through the bedroom door
You can be my mother
You can be my whore
Take a lesson in geography
Wash me down in Pepsi
Sweet obsess possess me
What love
What hate
Could reach the point of no return
What love
What hate
Could reach the point
What love
What hate
Could reach the point of no return
What love
What hate
Could reach the point

Devotion

( With Tricky )

I know what you see X5
Wanted with me
Suffocate me with a notion
Deserve me with devotion
Wanted with me X2
Why are we not talkin'
Why are we not speakin'
No words can describe
Inside, inside, I know what we need
I wish life was as simple as 1-2-3, as you and me
So long since I surrender
So long you I remember
It's your turn to fight the things they say
Even though we stay underneath different roofs
Today today today
I know what you see
Wanted with me
Strangle me with the notion
Twisted in my devotion
Wanted with me X2
(While your sleeping bag)??
Bare-faced like a bear
No words can describe
So why, so why, why does it feel
I wish life was as simple as 1-2-3, as you and me
So long since I surrender
So long you I remember
It's your turn to fight the things they say
Even though we stay underneath different roofs
Wanted with me X2
Suffocate me with emotion
Deserve me with devotion
Wanted with me X2
Why are we not talkin'
Why are we not speakin'
So long since I surrender
So long you I remember
It's your turn to fight the things they say
Even though we stay underneath different roofs
Are there no words to describe
Inside, inside, I know...
Wanted with me
Why won't you listen to me
Suffocate me with emotion
Deserve me with devotion
So long since I surrender
So long you I remember
It's your turn to fight the things they say
Even though we stay underneath different roofs
So long since I...
So long...
I can't find the words

Eyes On The Prize

Run run, run run, run run yeah here come
Run run, run run, run run yeah here come here come.

In the agony of the feet and the thrills of victory
(come on, come on)
You know I won't stop trying
Got my eyes on the prize
And I'm coming ready to compete
(come on, come on)
You know you need to bring it on

In the agony of the feet and the thrills of victory
(come on, come on)
You know I won't stop trying
Got my eyes on the prize
And I'm coming ready to compete

I know you can do it
With your heart into it
If you wanna break great hearts
You've got to move it
No time to fall back (fall back)
When you're on the right track (on the track)
Want you to keep on pushing
Got no time to relax

Put the word out tell the streets
I'm determined with self-belief
Delving deep inside my core
Steel my toes no time to pause
I am the prize getting my rewards
I'm representing a higher cause
Move on up we ain't going back
Keep on pushing don't relax
Achieving goals ain't easy though
I share the load with a team of pros
You can do it putting crazy work
It's like the race that we came in first

You can do it keep on moving
You can do it keep improving
You can do it you won't stop
You can do it reach the top

I know you can do it
With your heart into it
If you wanna break great hearts
You've got to move it
No time to fall back (fall back)
When you're on the right track (on the track)
Want you to keep on pushing
Got no time to relax

So I ain't gonna waste no time (waste no time)
Opportunity comes once in a while (once in a while)

No rest for the wicked if you wanna be a winner
And if you're gonna run around
Don't lose cause that's dry
A habit you can't kick it
And everyone's a sinner
And if you're gonna run around
We'll lose and I'll cry

Had you in me

( With Tricky )

Note: it begins with Tricky speaking in the background to someone in the studio.
( I shoulda been a women. I don't understand why I'm a man )

Tricky & Neneh Cherry :
Had you in me, had you in me
Had you in me, had you in me
In me, in me

Sick of what I feel, sick of being real
Better stay clear or I might hijack a plane
I'm getting sick of what I feel, sick of being real
You better stay clear ‘cause I'm about to blow the fuck up

Neneh Cherry :
Soap on my body's gonna make me clean
Giving birth makes me scream
See my light (life?) pass before me as i drown in the shadow under my
Bubble bath
A forced laugh a forged autograph
First my body
Now my corpse
I exercise daily...love my sports
I need when I conceive
I sow seed, I can see no remorse

Tricky & Neneh Cherry : X2

I had you in me
Had you in me
You in me
In me
Me
Sick of what i feel
Sick of being real
Better stay clear or I might hijack a plane
I'm getting sick of what I feel
Sick of being real
You better stay clear ‘cause I'm about to blow the fuck up

Tricky :
I'm liquid

Neneh Cherry :
Serving speed, self deceit,
I teased you now you're tame,
Put treacle on your tummy to keep you sticky when i steal,
I take from you I hate for you
You fools who feel free (?)
You look like a little somebody looking for something

Tricky :
And I'm still myself (to fade)

I've Got You Under My Skin

Spreading faster than an eye can blink
So I had to sit down and take time to think
Of how to spread the word to people all across the land
To make sure they putting out a helping hand

Neneh Cherry know the story so it must be told
About a group of people left in the cold
Caught by a plague slowly they fade
From an immune deficiency you see called "AIDS"

No knowledge of the facts, kept in the dark
Scolds my soul and it hurts my heart
The young and elderly just running blind
Hurts so bad they denied their own kind

Papa turned around and said that ain't mine
It just made it hard for life on the line
And it's a shame to see a little child mature
Growing up knowing that there ain't no cure

I've got you under my skin
I've got you under my skin
Pure pain they give me

I had a friend once by the name of Mary Jane
Out with the guys and getting high was her only game
And now the tears in her eyes, there she lies
It drove her crazy, all the boys say that's it

I told you so but you reached the point of no return
Instead of pride you take the hardest way you had to learn
Oh mommy dearest, don't you know that I miss her so
That's why I sing this song, just to let her know

I've got you under my skin
I've got you under my skin
I've got you deep in the heart of me
Down so deep in any part of me
I've got you, got you, got you under my skin
I've got you deep in the heart of me
Down so deep in any part of me
I've got you, got you, got you under my skin
Use your mentality, wake up to reality
I'be got you deep in the heart of me
Share your love, don't share the needle

Love Can Build A Bridge

I'd gladly walk across the desert with no shoes upon my feet
To share with you the last bite of bread I had to eat
I would swim out to save you in your sea of broken dreams
When all your hopes are sinking
Let me show you what love means

Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time
Don't you think it's time

I would whisper love so loudly every heart could understand
That love and only love can join the tribes of man
I would give my heart's desire so that you might see
The first step is to realise that it all begins with you and me

Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time
Don't you think it's time

When we stand together it's our finest hour
We can do anything
Anything
Anything
Anything
If we're believing in the power of love

Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time
Don't you think it's time

Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time
Don't you think it's time
Don't you think it's time

Think Twice

(Groove Armada feat. Neneh Cherry / Lovebox LP)

Close your eyes and lose the feeling that's been sinking
Close your eyes and count to three
Close your eyes, rewind, I know just what you're thinking
Close your eyes and think of me

Larger than life, niceties
Bigger than you, more than me
I got the monday morning blues
And, oh my God, I've got the home for you

And give the everyday morning you use
There's things right here we can't afford to choose

Close your eyes and lose the feeling that's been sinking
Close your eyes and count to three
Close your eyes, rewind, I know just what you're thinking
Close your eyes and think of me

Sincere, caramel, champagne, down drain, tell him, no gain
And so damn physical it will sustain
And too damn Technicolor to refrain
And much too taxing for my little brain

Why do we never know enough of happy ends
Why do they never show
All the times that we have been so good and caring
How many times, we'll never know

Close your eyes and lose the feeling that's been sinking
Close your eyes and count to three
Close your eyes, rewind, I know what you've been thinking
Close your eyes and think of me

Close your eyes and lose the feeling that's been sinking
Close your eyes and count to three

Close your eyes, rewind, I know just what you're thinking
Close your eyes and think of me

Packed it like a punch out to lunch
I got a little hunch that stood out from the bunch
As if that's not enough, I even knew the reason why

That goddamn bitch of life, she made me cry
So I'd like to poke her squarely in the eye
And it hurts so much, I feel like I could die
Yeah

Turn My Back

Posted, stamped and tasted
Letter from me to me
My direct plea
Fruitless and out of season
Came back to me, unopened
Untasted, untried and not tested
I began to see
Fulfil needs silently
Inside we bleed

Right, write right to the country
And tell them I'm sorry I left
My man and 48 kids on the bridge of starvation
Without any gingerbread
Right, I write right to the country
And tell them I'm sorry I left
My man and 48 kids on the bridge of starvation
Without any gingerbread

Give me little leave for the things I need
Give me little love
Give me little peace
Give me this and that

Like freaks we come together after midnight
Abstract in our love
Abstinent and out of reach
I plead for release
Kiss me please, kiss me please
Reality like letting my head go
Like bullet rains in the desert dry
No high, won't change
How low you go, how low you go

Turn my back, turn around again
There it is, there it is again

Bad taste, privet to my tongue
Visions that I have
Become memories like echoes
And that is real at least to me
I got to find a leave for my tape machine
Give me little leave for the things I need
Messenger, metaphors
Abstinent I reform
My Pumas go like machine guns
When I gotta go, gotta go

Give me little leave for the things I need
Give me little love
Give me little peace
Give me this and that
Turn my back, turn around again
There it is, there it is again

Left, right, my left, my left, my right
Left, I left, with my right I step
With my left I left

Twisted Mess

The first kiss you planted to my face.
The second twist tonight, a fate.
And somehow the taste of fear
took up all the space in here.

(more or less)
I pick a way out in the twisted mess. (more or less)
Disintegrated, strategically impressed. (more or less)
No longer residents at the new address. (more or less)
Scratch me like a perfume ad,
recycle all the plans we had. (more or less)

Whenever I fake, (more or less)
whoever I take, (more or less)
however it breaks, (more or less)
someone's gonna fall.
I sense a grain of stress (more or less)
hurting you more or less. (more or less)
I pick up this twisted mess. (more or less)

Like sinking ships dragged into abyss,
just slamming in simpleness.
Wherever I take the night,
keeping it eye to eye,
just slammin with tastiness. (more or less)

I pick a way out in the twisted mess, (more or less)
Disintegrated, strategically digress. (more or less)
No longer residents at your own address. (more or less)
Watch me like a prison guard,
swipe me like a credit card. (more or less)

Whenever I fake, (more or less)
whoever I take, (more or less)
however it breaks, (more or less)
someone's gonna fall. (more or less)
I sense a grain of stress (more or less)
hurting you more or less. (more or less)
I pick up this twisted mess. (more or less)
(more or less)
(more or less)

Take me, shake me, knock me with
a million ways that we relate.
We both come to suffocate
to make it through the night today. (more or less)
Count the days strategically (more or less)
creeping to believe in me. (more or less)
Who to blame and who will be, (more or less)
make it through an irony. (more or less)

Whenever I fake, (more or less)
whoever I take, (more or less)
however it breaks, (more or less)
someone's gonna fall. (more or less)
I sense a grain of stress (more or less)
hurting you more or less. (more or less)
I pick up this twisted mess. (more or less)
(more or less)

Those that think and those that do. (Whenever I fake, (more or less))
Am I up or am I blue? (whoever I take, (more or less))
Take up all the space in here (however it breaks, (more or less))
as we try to hide our fear. (someone's gonna fall. (more or less))
When we try the simple sense, (I sense a grain of stress, (more or less))
faded out the sun will cleanse (?) (hurting you more or less. (more or
less))
Now I start to reminisce, (I pick up this twisted mess. (more or less))
moving on to picture this. (more or less)
Take me, shake me, knock me with (Whenever I fake, (more or less))
a million ways that we relate. (whoever I take, (more or less))
We both come to suffocate (however it breaks, (more or less))
to make it through the night today. (someone's gonna fall. (more or less))
Count the days strategically, (I sense a grain of stress, (more or less))
creeping to believe in me. (hurting you more or less. (more or less))
Who to blame and who will be, (I pick up this twisted mess. (more or less))
make it through an irony. (more or less)
Now that's tasting on my lips (Whenever I fake, (more or less))
fear that's always sour bliss. (whoever I take, (more or less))
Now I start to reminisce, (however it breaks, (more or less))
moving on to picture this. (someone's gonna fall. (more or less))
Is this terror, is this bliss (I sense a grain of stress, (more or less))
sinking down deep to abyss? (hurting you more or less. (more or less))
Drinking up and making kisses (I pick up this twisted mess. (more or less))
searching for the surfaces. (more or less)
Those that think and those that do
Am I up or am I blue?
Take up all the space in here
As we try to hide our fear.
When we try to save ourselves...

Walk Into This Room

Don't let 'em get to your heart
Don't lose your diamonds swimmin' in a lake when it's only God
The whole wide world feels like a shrine built to the worker bees
Who stole it from God anyhow

Lay it down child Lay it down child And walk into this room

Don't let 'em get to your spark
That little light in the back of everything that says this
Isn't for madder love
The whole wide world feels like a clan
of mad scientists removing the juice
So they can freeze-dry you and put you in a box

Lay it down child
Lay it down child
And walk into this room all made with love for you
Lay it down child
You can
You can
Lay it down child
And walk into this room

A hundred candles to make the walls come alive
A little frank incense to sweeten the air just right
Now take my hand

And open the door
And open the door

Lay it down child
You can
You can
Lay it down child
And walk into this room
Walk into this room
Lay it down child
Just lay it down, lay it down
Lay it down
Lay it down, lay it down
Into this room
