Lyrics
“And then there was him.
Without words, he told me I was all needed.
He transformed my entire outlook on life.
He made me believe again.
And just like that… I was whole.”

“I was on to something.
I knew there was more.
Before there was nothing.
With him I had all.”

THE BULLITTS:
Monogram hologram,
Seeming realistic in a dream,
My phonogram,
Analogue emotions in a stream,
Wave radio,
Beautiful fire gasoline my love,

Running like railroad train
Whistle like wind in rain
Bitter moon and sun exchange a glance,
Turn away…

Close your eyes.
Radio lies.
Here’s dynamite sonic in real-time.
This is your life.
Cradle and knife.
Everything grow until die.

Here we go, stereo
Turning volume down again
My merry go,
Mystical reflections call a pen,
Write heat explode,
Falling nearer to the end my love,

Running like railroad train
Whistle like wind in rain
Bitter moon and sun exchange a glance,
Turn away…

Close your eyes.
Radio lies.
Here’s dynamite sonic in real-time.
This is your life.
Cradle and knife.
Everything grow until die.

Jay Electronica:
Have you ever had that feeling like you been falling for weeks in a well?

I was on the verge of dying like E.T. in the bald spot in the forest, right next to the speak and spell…
Tryna phone home but the signal wouldn’t reach the cell…
Tryna hold on a little longer teeth and nail
without a hand to wipe the tears away from my cheek when they fell.
When I couldn’t get peace from a pipe or chiefing an L,
I thought of the words of pastor Dunn when he said;

“Son, at first they screamed hosanna on the highest then turned around and crucified the christ after a week in jail”

Stick to the script like paper clips and coffee stains,
Never let a seed of doubt deter you from your lofty aims,
The will us much stronger than the flesh,
And it only grows stronger when you’re going through duress,
Imagination is the factory that makes legends…
Close Your Eyes and dream B.I.G like Faith Evans.
