Track Name: Heart Drops
I see you our eyes meet and my heart stops
I see you our eyes meet and my belly flops
I see you our eyes meet and my heart just drops

I see you our eyes meet and my heart stops
I see you our eyes meet and my belly flops
I see you our eyes meet and my heart just drops

I see you our eyes meet and my heart stops
I see you our eyes meet and my belly flops
I see you our eyes meet and my heart just drops
Track Name: Trepedacious Questions
You, yes you, make me question
You, yes you, make me realise
You, yes you, see me with different eyes

I can rewrite an ending
and with dulcet tones
I can make you fall in love with a fictional heroine
But I can’t –
No I can’t –
make you fall in love
No I can’t –
No I can’t –
make you fall in love
No I can’t –
No I can’t –
seem to find
seem to find
Anything remotely resembling love with you

You, yes you, make me question
You, yes you, make me realise
You, yes you, see me with different eyes

I can rewrite an ending
and with dulcet tones
And with florid melodies, rich harmonies, I can make you fall
I can make you fall in love with a fictional heroine
But I can’t make you fall
But I can’t make you fall
But I can’t seem to find
But I can’t seem to find
Anything
Anything remotely resembling love
Track Name: The Fall
(love is not an emotion, it is a pure and ever-growing state of the soul, transcending the human condition)

and I am woken by my own prayers
and I am woken by lingerings of your voice, of your words
shaken by an overwhelming sense, an urge, a thirst, an urge
to combine these two lights
set ablaze, you amaze, set ablaze
set ablaze

and I only met you the once
and we only spoke the thrice
what I'm being told
what I'm being told
don't fall, don't fall, don't falter
my heart, my heart
my heart

a wise man's words once moved me
he wrote, he spoke, he said, he wrote, he spoke
"and when love beckons to you, answer him
though his ways are steep and stiff
his ways are steep and stiff
you'll learn, you'll grow
you'll learn, you'll grow"

and I only met you the once
and we only spoke the thrice
what I'm being told
what I'm being told
don't fall, don't fall, don't falter
my heart, my heart
my heart

an African proverb, once passed down to me
it says, it says, it says
"you will always know, who you love
but you'll never truly know,
no, you'll never truly know who loves you"

tell me what you're thinking
I'll tell you what I'm feeling
it's the fall, the fall, the falter of my heart
my heart, my heart
Track Name: Leo's Song
Hear the madness begin to evolve
See the planets commence to revolve
How the eons meet in vortex
How centuries dissolve

Hear the madness begin to evolve
See the planets commence to revolve
How the eons meet in vortex
How centuries dissolve
Track Name: 147 Times
“Am I attractive? Well, that partly depends on your race — or so says an analysis of the preferences of users logged into a popular Facebook dating, which allows clients to click “yes” if they find a person attractive or takethe option of skipping to the next profile page.””Spoiler alert: the 21st Century is not even close to resembling a post-racial society.”
Hey you, did you know you broke my heart
147 times
I tried to make you mine
I was witty
I was charming
I was smart
I was giving
But I was black, not pretty

Never feeling quite human
Never feeling quite the same
Always expecting rejection
And that label
That dreaded label
“Just a black sistah, bent on revenge”

Hey you, did you know you broke my heart
147 times
I tried to make you mine
I was witty
I was charming
I was smart
I was giving
But I was black, not pretty

Never feeling quite human
Never feeling quite the same
Always expecting rejection
And that label
That dreaded label

Hey you, did you know you broke my heart
147 times
I tried to make you mine
I was witty
I was charming
I was smart
I was giving
But I was black, not pretty

“Is a strong same-race preference something one ought to be ashamed of? Or is it enough to say that the heart wants what it wants and to leave it at that? This is a more important question than you might think.”

“By stating that you wouldn’t date a certain group, you are essentially claiming that their superficial qualities would make it impossible for you to form an emotional connection – which is, let’s face it, prejudice.”

Hey you, did you know you broke my heart
147 times
I tried to make you mine
I was witty
I was charming
I was smart
I was giving
But I was black, not pretty
Track Name: A Match Made In Sodom and Gomorrah
He has no honour
She has a wire loose and sparking
They both take what they want
And do as they please
No regard
No regard for others
No regard
No regard for others

A despotic amoral match
A despotic amoral match made in Sodom and Gomorrah
Made in Sodom and Gomorrah

Pseudo-intellectual posers
Spewing out
Spewing out
Supposed counterculture propaganda
Supposed counterculture propaganda
Homogenized propaganda
Homogenized…

A pompous arrogant match
Made in Sodom and Gomorrah
Pompous arrogant match
Made in Sodom and Gomorrah

A cur and a cad
Dishonest with no conscience
Both tell massive lies without thinking twice
Both tell massive lies

A lecherous depraved
Match made in Sodom and Gomorrah
Match made in Sodom and Gomorrah
A lecherous
A lecherous
Depraved match
Made in Sodom
Made in Sodom and Gomorrah
Made in Sodom
Made in Sodom and Gomorrah
Made in Sodom
Made in Sodom and Gomorrah
Track Name: Soft Light
energy waves
dancing between us
astral waves
draw us closer together

in my dreams
in my dreams
reality is all it should be

in my dreams
in my dreams
I erase all the pain of your waking world
in my dreams
you're at peace
you're at peace, my love
my love

in the soft light...

in the soft light
I knew
I knew
in the soft light
I knew
I knew
in the soft light of clear dark night
I knew
I knew

energy waves dancing between us
in the soft light of a warm dark night
I knew
I knew
it was you
it was you
