Track Name: Simple Like Sonar
I call your name and there you are
Simple like sonar

Echolocation in the dark

Simple like sonar

Along the way I found the light,

the light that was always inside of me

Echoing out beyond the endless stars.



I went to the forest and bowed to the medicine man

he said "you already got the remedy for it

your wish is your own command."



It's that sonic supersoul from the get-go

big bang boomerang, "hello,

operator is anyone out there?"

yo but for real tho

I know love is supposed to be all around

Why do I feel so low down?

It's an addiction

It's a vicious cyclical condition.

the light that was always inside of me

Echoing out beyond the endless stars.



Truth be told the supersoul to move the whole globe

Is born in every child but people just don't know

The power they could let flow which is why cowards are in control

and towers of Babylon grow

for hours I could babble on but no I won't

that's not the reason why I wrote this

I just wanted y'all to focus both ears

so I could let you know this,

just in case you haven't noticed

the message is so clear.

Simple like sonar, but where do we go from here?

You took your time didn't you yeah

You took your time didn't you yeah

You took your time didn't you yeah

You took your time

And I've been waiting for you for so long

waiting for you for so long

waiting for you

waiting for you

Track Name: Borderline
whoaaaa
i'm not tryina be rude but I think I know what's good for you



step over the borderline

step over the borderline

step over the borderline

a haaaaa



my world is divided

everyone is one-sided

everyone think they got the sight while the rest of them blinded

it's not hard to define it

it's how the war lords design it

yeah -- a haaaa



whoaaaa It won't be too long

before everybody's come along



stepped over the borderline

step over the borderline

step over the borderline

a haaaaa



we are creators

and every single passing moment

is golden

an opportunity to take control

just stop rewinding

the past is final

the future is yours to mold

a haaaaa



whoaaaa We are so afraid

and that's okay we're stronger every day



stepped over the borderline

step over the borderline

step over the borderline

a haaaaa



when I step over the borderline

i set my sights more than high

got this feeling that there's more to life

and my vision is more defined

i'm Neo to the Matrix I transform at night

the formula is no fear so I'm never mortified

but here's a metaphor of mine:

everything I do I treat it sorta like

it was a bowl into which I pour my mind,

heart, body and soul

i make Olympic-level art I'm

takin the gold and when you

came to our show we had you

shakin that ass til it was

scrapin the floor

homie I'm killin this shit

just like a horror movie classic

friday the 13th I'm Jason on the flow

it's drastic

put on my mask and that's it

chasin my goals I'm spittin flames

doin mad sprints so call me a

dashing dragon cuz I got a habit

of goin 100%

never puttin half in



whoaaa it won't be too long before everybody's come along



stepped over the borderline

step over the borderline

step over the borderline

a haaaaaa



step over the borderline

step over the borderline

every day I'm spittin nouns

comin straight for your town

beyond a shadow of a doubt I've been a rabbit in a field and a sparrow in the clouds

Hourglass flow is so narrow then it's out of time

this is not your only chance at life

so if you don't give a fuck put your hands up high!

and do your best to minimize your damage -- why?

cuz you might come back as a parasite

this is not your only pair of eyes

errybody carries a high potential

word from the wise: no matter what you've been through

whether or not you're uptight or you get loose

lifetimes pass by like a swift Coupe

so vibe high cuz your soul's on infinite loop



I've been around for a long time

Track Name: Harmony
yo it's fifth nation

came with the great riffs

to make hits now it's the sound

it's the elevation of your town

but never with hesitation

we never had a doubt

they say "never say never" but man

once in a while i think it's clever

if love was the Nile i'd swim forever

at least a few miles, cuz yo I've never

been the type of of dude to be wilin'

and just be down with whatever

I'm like a machine man I'm full of gears and levers

this harmony and peace got me feelin better

than bein a rat in the street tryina make a meal outta chedder instead I

make a fat beat and try to heal our brethren

I believe lyin, cheatin and stealin

that's a dead end

so I choose to be free instead of chillin up in a cell as a felon

positivity's the feelin i'm dealin

cuz that real revolution's in the hands of the children



i stick around with the cold wind

suckin in the origins

high tide in the red sea, come around

come right back to me

whoaaa

you take care of your machinery

an incredible world's

suckin in the origins

high tide in the red sea, come around

come right back to me

my love it's okay full-moon day break

oh mysteries are clear and fill my lungs

nothing is far and nothing near, nothing begun

tattered hoping speechless the runaway is fed

oh subtleties are clear when i'm turned on

when i'm tuned in when i'm aware that nothing's gone

aeroplane was in the sky, my town is gone

but all that history survives and change is gonna come



ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh



first they tell you a vision then sell you prescriptions

pills slow down your brain til snails move quicker

they say i'm insane cuz i fail to consume liquor

and i can't sit still in one place watchin the tube flicker

i wear a mask, man, so the laws can't see me

they be like "who did this?"

wondering like Stevie cuz we be

makin mad moves

head held high with a rad attitude

every story got sides I stand with the truth

cuz I can't stand watchin the man on the news

CNN, Fox, it really don't matter

either way Murdoch pockets get fatter

the world is a canvas so i'ma take this hammer

smash the TV, watch the paint drop splatter



won't you tell me bout your sorrow

won't you tell me bout your hard road

i am listening because i am attempting to understand

the vision in your mind

Chicago is a model of a pill that's hard to swallow

fake ass politicians should change they name to Rollo Goodlove

why couldn't love just be the motto?

when good brothers die every day

and children follow the example

I lay awake just thinkin "why though?"

wishin I had the answer but man, I don't

good music could save! so damn

go on, put your hands up

we need an anthem for peace

to get you dancin with your rivals

to make them frequencies elevate like when singers hit them high notes

and i aint even from in them streets

but man i won't

pretend like i'm feelin that heat

but hey, i know

when we cause the fire to cease

we turn the tides yo

instead of squeezin triggers we each could take the high road

and when your heart starts to increase

that's when you ride slow

make some art, get you a beat and bust a nice flow

instead of prison yards you be free to be a hero



another young boy loses life tonight -- why?

i beg and i pray and i set my sights high:

oh lord, all my people in the world to be free

hey, oh, la la la la la la, oh yeah



they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire

they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire

they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire

they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire



negativity dissolves like debris

in the burn of my atmosphere

no matter how quick through space it flies

it falls apart when it comes near



see my mission's so huge it got its own moon

circlin around the sky

ooh gravity pulls and i don't know how

but all that really matters is why



they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire

they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire

they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire

they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire

they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire

they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire

they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire

they call it Chiraq - we callin cease fire
Track Name: Secret Garden

feel so open and so alive

reach out for heaven and i realize



it's right here, i don't doubt it

it's right here, secret garden

it's right here, i don't doubt it

Track Name: I'm In Love
I'll never leave your side
I want you for my life

You are the father for my future son

I'll never hide the truth

I am open to you

I speak even if it is painful, painful



And all my animal desires

They only add a flame to the fire

Even if somebody else sparks a mood

Nothing compares to the light I make with you



Oh, oh, oh, oh I'm In Love

Oh, oh, oh, oh I'm In Love



Darling I kiss your tears

You're soaking wet with fear

I suck the sadness out of every corner



And all my animal desires

They only add a flame to the fire

Even if somebody else sparks a mood

Nothing compares to the light I make with you



Oh, oh, oh, oh I'm In Love

Oh, oh, oh, oh I'm In Love
Track Name: She's So Beautiful
lyin to myself again

if i'm gonna be strong or weak when you get home

and tell me what you did with her

tell me what you did



you were never mine to let go

i never owned you

but even though i said it was all cool

it still hurts, it still hurts



she's so beautiful, she's so beautiful

she's so beautiful, she's so beautiful

she's so beautiful, she's so beautiful

cuz i just wanna be there

instead of sittin alone tonight

tryin to be strong, tryina be strong

strong



girl i know that we've been down since the beginning

every time i feel a frown you're the one that's got me grinning

but there's a new girl in town

and she got my mind spinning

she's makin my chest pound

got me thinkin bout sinning

hearing champion sounds

i'm feelin like i'm winning

then i drop my head down and i

question my decisions

maybe we could work this out

my hat's off and i bow cuz you been so forgiving

you understand i'm a man and i'm not down with traditions

and i know that this hurts you

now i feel like i been trippin

slippin away from that place where we started

hopin i didn't extinguish the flame with this spark

i got this pain in my brain

this ache in my heart

tryin not to sway and stay true

but it's hard

i guess i'll have to stay cool and leave fate to the stars

i promise that i'll be honest just hope it don't break us apart



whatever form our love takes

whatever color or shape

it's still sacred and deeply appreciated



whatever form our love takes

it's gonna be what it's got to be

thank you for your honesty baby, baby



she's so beautiful, she's so beautiful

she's so beautiful, she's so beautiful

she's so beautiful, she's so beautiful

Track Name: Looking Glass
Cheshire cat stretchin out in the sun
Up on the windowsill of perception

I am diving into another dimension

I'm forever young



Cheshire cat stretchin out in the sun

Up on the windowsill of perception

I am diving into another dimension

I'm forever young



Ayo the spirit of hip hop

electro soul funk

inhabits your speakers

and then rattles your trunk

A magic elixir to get you so drunk

beamed down from the nebulas

of stardust plus

whenever we level this up

we be gettin you higher than them blunts

cuz Fifth Nation ain't never on the walk

we always on the run

Got a map to the galaxies printed upon our thumbs

and with these rhythms and these rhymes you can travel through time, son!



Raise your hands in elevation

inevitable elevation

I am a creature beyond dimension

I'm forever young



Cheshire cat stretchin out in the sun



Interdimensional energies

readily available

you better be cleverly able

to change your whole being

to the right frequencies

to let the light speak through thee

try deeply reading between these lines and seeing

that time travel's more than a probability

Let your mind unravel for a minute

Feel the beat

Perception is an illusion

With our senses we can't really see

what the message is so the truth is convoluted

but we're clearly free

Now everybody blast off into infinity



We need y'all to reach for the sun

This that Fifth muhfuckin Nation

We is some creatures beyond dimension

I'm forever young



Blast off faster and faster

Straight through the mind of the master

Cast off masses of past thoughts

I'm a straight shooter with a clear shot



I'm a straight shooter with a clear shot

I'm a straight shooter with a clear shot

I'm a straight shooter with a clear shot

I'm a straight shooter with a clear shot
