Track Name: Take Off (Intro)
Take Off (Intro)

Welcome to the wonderful world of
An album made with passion and pure love
Ain't no stopping our momentum it's fixed gear
We got no brakes on this ride so just stay clear
We skid through the Terminal with luggage in tow. See,
We bringing down the transit lounge like Viktor Navorski
People never believed but we ain't pay ‘em no mind
I ain’t saying no names ‘cause I ain't giving them shine
Call the doubters up and tell ‘em that we back on the grind
Shit, as soon as we arrive, bet they give us a dial
Hold my calls. Pack my drawls. I might be gone for a while
I'm like Mr. Ryan Bingham as i'm stacking the miles
The life of recycled air and security lines
Can only mean we pushing forward never life in rewind
Now boarding, is it morning or the evening? I'm high
Super Fly like Jimmy Snuka go as far as I like
Touchdown in due time got my seat in recline
Drinking complimentary wine as I'm passing the time
Lifeswell is worldwide! I know that y'all been waiting
We like Anthony Bourdain no need for reservations
In route to other nations whatever the destination
Business or for pleasure not taking on limitations
This is your invitation, come fly let's do this
Putting stamps on my passport all from making music. Come on!

We can take off today you know,
We can take off today and go
Just as far as you like
As far as you like, baby

We can take off today you know,
We can take off today and go
Just as far as you like
As far as you like, baby

From the start to the present Lifeswell how we living
Made our own lane trod the road what’s forbidden
If you sick of the drama and all the ill feelings,
It’s time to take flight (take flight take flight)
We slamming, jamming, keep it hot all time
Never running strutting with the status on climb
Spirit sober. Sometimes you’ll be walking on air
Contrabidas with the lasso up who that over there?
Yeah, uggh got nothing to lose
That bullshit that you kick better take that and cruise
Then, head to shore ‘cause the sharks are out
Atlantic back to pack off to different routes
Born raised in Manila checking prints deuce for real or
Go getter get cheddar respects and cinderellas
Lamping with the fellas team shit on lock
So keep your head to the sky and let the mother fucking beat rock!

We can take off today you know,
We can take off today and go
Just as far as you like
As far as you like, baby

We can take off today you know,
We can take off today and go
Just as far as you like
As far as you like, baby

Move feat. Farmer JohnEric

Lot’s of loving they come around my way
But some in disguise them leading me a stray
I see ya, another day a new chapter I say
But now listen to the fashion ahead of delay
Mash it up with time while the mannequin steppin'
Move gotta move nuh get stuck pon di lesson
If bad man Want test? I’m equipped for the session
Alpha and Omega peace to war last weapon
Expose my mind fi them set up the plans with them
Back in the day you know burn up the time with them
Today all envious. My name out the mouth of them
Stepped up the pace so now the dust all over them
Ah them don’t like me and me no like them
Big up the team you know your game proper them
Rhythm Natives them the Fighting Cocks and them
Pull up, from the session, it’s iGlen

Too many suckas not enough rhyme
Hit ‘em with the rhythm native people it's our time
MOVE! People let's go
No time to sit back, relax, or lay low

Too many suckas not enough rhymes
Hit em with the rhythm native people it's our time
MOVE! People let's go
No time to sit back, relax, or lay low

Boom! Do your thing, boy. Level with me now
As we're making moves that's when the people seem to come out
Like, "I've been down since day one" type spit
I don't give a shit for kids requesting part time bids
Look, you wasn't there when the weather was rough
Folded in the fourth quarter when the pressure was up
Now you’re blowing up my cell trying to butter me up
I'll tell you what, run and pick my dry clean up
Refill my Starbucks cup with that grande latte stuff
Water my fake plants. I got you on that intern love, bruh
So I'm the bad man cause truth done hurt
Hell if I make things worse, I'm out to get mines first
Hey everybody got ideas but nobody want to work
Want your hand up in the purse without the sweat on your shirt
I'm flipping birds within my words to show these jerks what they worth
I murder verses call the nurses for these nerds that I served. MOVE!

Too many suckas not enough rhyme
Hit em with the rhythm native people it's our time
MOVE! People let's go
No time to sit back, relax, or lay low

Too many suckas not enough rhymes
Hit em with the rhythm native people it's our time
MOVE! People let's go
No time to sit back, relax, or lay low

We keep it moving keep it moving all over the land
From Manila to Hawaii to Jamaica Japan
We keep i moving keep it moving all over the land
From LA to the Bay to any spot on the map
We keep i moving keep it moving all over the land
Rhythm Natives John Eric Fighting Cocks is the band
We keep i moving keep it moving all over the land
We keep i moving keep it moving all over the land
Track Name: Miss Universe
Miss Universe

I fell in love this girl. yes, back in 92
A bizarre ride from the Pharcyde but I had no clue
It was love at first sound at the age of 10
infatuated. she could stimulate my mind within
All of these years I keep my emotions concealed
Decided to write a letter just to tell her how feel.
It said:

Dear Miss Thang,

Long time no see.
I left you messages but you ain't getting at me.
Honestly, I think that the last we spoke,
You was in the club. "Bottle full of what". Had to be a joke.
I think the money got you shaking it. You"re running in place.
I reminisce over you and play our old mixtapes.
I'm in a band now. I was hoping you'd get word.
Hoping you would join me and we conquer the world.
I long for old ways. That innocence you brought.
I love you, Hip Hop.

Your Boy,
Kreative Thought

Yo, I freak her like I ought to
These other cats can’t do her the way that I do
She give me the word then you know that it's bond
All night rock on ‘til the breakadawn

I’ve never been the same since ’88 I came
LAX a year later it was BUDDY on my brain
Money on my mind respect the integrity
Doing it for real. So man, what you telling me?
From jump, I knew she was no average girl
Baby liked it raw do my thang make her lip curl
Damn girl check the other referral
Thoughts he kreate on Rhythm band instrumentals. Word Up!
She let the “…Threshold of Negative Stress” loom
The only girl to bump Boogiemonsters in my bedroom
I call her “Ms. Jackson”, a slight Outkast
But Mos Def a “…Fat Booty” Queen down in Hollis Ave
Yeah, I'm a Geto Boy “…Playin Tricks On…” her brain
But still let me “Set It Off” like a Big Daddy Kane
Since “It Takes Two” to EZ Rock it fresh
Trust, “I Got It Made” no need for Special Ed

Yo, I freak her like I ought to
These other cats can’t do her the way that I do
She give me the word then you know that it's bond
All night rock on ‘til the breakadawn

First name Bini last name Rocha
Met her in the Philippines tint light mocha
Andrew E. told me about a rough tough wine
How she love to bounce back never get left behind
Bini-bini one time, how you like me now?
Just doing my thing still guided by the crown
In the states, Long Overdue testing shit out
Overseas love? What’s that all about?
On the route to find a way is the right one for me
But, in the end mixed up just like a mutt
Big ‘ole butts medium to the small
The type to hit you up late night with a call
I entertain refrain from kickin’ something lame
Bini has evolved and will never be the same
Summertime band camp she was the opposite of tame
She said, “fuck the props. Get the money and the fame”.

Yo, I freak her like I ought to
These other cats can’t do her the way that I do
She give me the word then you know that it's bond
All night rock on
Track Name: Make Up Your Mind
Make Up Your Mind

I know it's cliche but I saw you from a distance
Felt obliged to speak I approached you in an instant
I hope I didn't come off strong
You said "Nah, here's my number", I'll call you tomorrow
But I'm not what you expected you thought I was strange
You say I act childish I never act my age
Took my sentiments for granted you'll probably never change
Why am i to blame? Your accusations are vague
From day one I know I over welcomed my stay
I'd come to your crib asked you "how was your day?"
Nothing but one-word answers and little to say
Is it time to get away and let my feelings a stray?
'Cause you're so out of touch. We're no longer in love
The companionship is gone I ain't feeling you much
So I tell you from my gut that I'm upping my game
I'm sending you away fin to give you your space. PEACE!

So now I give you space
It's something I must face
You got me running, heart is broken
Boy make up your mind
You know I'm always here
But things are not so clear
So now it's time to grow and find out
Who we are this time


Look here, baby. Things are kinda weird
It happened before then again I kinda steered
On the same road outside with no code
To get in so where you been, I saw you last night
We was alright with the promises looked into my eyes
Talkin' 'bout I'm your king, yeah you the queen
But today I'm on a lean bent on this brown liquor
Tryin' to figure this coaster route if it's about
All the rude girl lovin' got me acting funny
Do your thing Mami, but hold it down for me
See, more time is needed to fortify the castle and
Land on the good side then keep it up
This guy, got you on his mind
So why you acting blind, baby?
Why you hazy? Should've known from the jump
Third parties interrupt

So now I give you space
It's something I must face
You got me running, heart is broken
Boy make up your mind
You know I'm always here
But things are not so clear
So now it's time to grow and find out
Who we are this time

So now I give you space
It's something I must face
You got me running, heart is broken
Girl make up your mind
You know I'm always here
But things are not so clear
So now it's time to grow and find out
Who we are this time
Track Name: Holding It Down feat. Miss Jenn K
Holding It Down feat. Miss Jenn K

It’s been a long time but we don’t stop
We keep on putting it down
Can’t hold us back now we’re on top
And y’all better watch out now
‘Cause we’re holding it down
‘Cause we’re holding it down
‘Cause we’re holding it down¬
‘Cause we’re holding it down

Yo, I'm here to cash in so up goes your limbs
New year, new money do the math
Get the dollar, get the pound, get the yen, get paid
Stretch it worldwide got connects to be made
Yes ya'll indeed windows they still bleed
Yo, I'm still writing rhymes and crates I still feed
Peace to those like-minded on the same plain
A finger to those who blame others ‘cause they can't gain
Haters ain't ready for this shit we cooking up
Metal chef be the status challengers get eaten up
Chomp-chomp like Pac-Man, big up Manny Pac-Man
Pinoy to the bone got corned beef in a can
Understand the plan: execute expand
Rec. that distribute all across the land
A Manila soul season just put us on
Style forward on the map switch up like vagabonds

It’s been a long time but we don’t stop
We keep on putting it down
Can’t hold us back now we’re on top
And y’all better watch out now
‘Cause we’re holding it down
‘Cause we’re holding it down
‘Cause we’re holding it down¬
‘Cause we’re holding it down

They say good things come to those who wait
But I've been waiting and haven't seen “good” on my plate
Short term goals and step one of the plan
Is advice from your peers have them give you hand
Bambu said, “It's about early mornings, late nights,
And a drive to get this cake.” Right?
That's difference between success and underachievement
Taking what's mine. Fuck that go with the breeze spit
Slowly but surely the target is still the same
Was never good with navigating so I'm changing my aim
I'm all about the now to map what happens later
Was a paper chaser now a paper taker
Flip and get filthy be a better saver
Money makes it easy to purchase land by the acres
Let the dough rise get the bread I’m the baker
Cooking up success the best revenge for you haters

It’s been a long time but we don’t stop
We keep on putting it down
Can’t hold us back now we’re on top
And y’all better watch out now
‘Cause we’re holding it down
‘Cause we’re holding it down
‘Cause we’re holding it down¬
‘Cause we’re holding it down

(Bridge)

It’s been a long time but we don’t stop
We keep on putting it down
Can’t hold us back now we’re on top
And y’all better watch out now
‘Cause we’re holding it down
‘Cause we’re holding it down
‘Cause we’re holding it down¬
‘Cause we’re holding it down
Track Name: Trust Me
Trust Me

You probably think that I'm out acting foolish
Being young dumb and just plain stupid
Useless, good for nothing. Girl, but just trust me
My crew making moves within this industry
Intresting lies I find disgusting
Snakes in the biz need major adjusting
Trust me they aint fuckin with me usually
Give it to em straight they better get use to me
Do it now. So no regrets later on
Let’s make the memories before the chance is gone
Do what you gotta, if the feelings are real
Straight up, no side-stepping let me know the deal
Love to spend money but rather spend time
King-size trampoline, baby. Check the sign
Chill with the virgo hop on my line
Just ride with the kid you won’t get left behind

Trust me, it’s more a love than a lust thing
You mention and question my intentions on how I do things
I’m off to work for the evening
Tomorrow we can change and rearrange on how we do things
Trust me, it’s more a love than a lust thing
You mention and question my intentions on how I do things
It's all work minus the antics
Just taking full advantage for the lack of second chances

Interference got us all grounded
Pushing us off from the spot we were mounted
So just trust me, baby. Three parts to everything
My word, your side, how we do our thing
So trust me. Yeah, we still in a twist
When sunny days haunt let’s rise from the abyss
Cause it goes like this, “are you down with the king?”
Living in the jungle don’t mean I gotta swing
So trust me. And it goes for me too
An open mind counts. So, who’s down with you boo?
Loosen up a little maybe a whole lot
Gotta connect dots before the love rots
If you trust me, then we bound for the kush
Nice up the loving now and after the push
And keep pushing insecurities away
Last night we had a talk. Spilled what she had to say

Trust me, it’s more a love than a lust thing
You mention and question my intentions on how I do things
I’m off to work for the evening
Tomorrow we can change and rearrange on how we do things
Trust me, it’s more a love than a lust thing
You mention and question my intentions on how I do things
It's all work minus the antics
Just taking full advantage for the lack of second chances

Relationships are kind of hard when I'm in school full time
I've got a government job and a passion for rhyme
In due time, we'll adjust and the stars will align
To our favor, of course, 'cause that's the plan designed
You gotta trust me baby your boy ain't lazy
I'm just weighin' out my options getting money like, "pay me"
But maybe, forget Ana or Stacy
The band got them crazy straight attracting the ladies
They're infatuated silly with whatever I say. See,
The perception is that I'm nice cause I'm calling them "Baby"
To be honest, my focus is somewhat hazy
But it's all about you, none of them faze me
Trust me, you're nothing short of amazing
‘Cause it's you and me ‘til we pushing up daisies
I said, you're nothing short of amazing
‘Cause it's you and me ‘til we pushing up daisies

Trust me, it’s more a love than a lust thing
You mention and question my intentions on how I do things
I’m off to work for the evening
Tomorrow we can change and rearrange on how we do things
Trust me, it’s more a love than a lust thing
You mention and question my intentions on how I do things
It's all work minus the antics
Just taking full advantage for the lack of second chances

(SOLOS)

Trust Me its more love than lust thing
You mention and question my intentions on how I do things
Im off to work for the evening
Tomorrow we can change and rearrange on how we do things
Trust Me its more love than lust thing
You mention and question my intentions on how I do things
It's all work minus the antics
Just taking full advantage for the lack of second chances
Track Name: Mess With feat. Kronic Plague
Mess With feat. Kronic Plague

I met this cat in the latter stage of high school
Loved the simple beauty of women as much as i do
He had his own woman but admired mine too
Mind you, he had intentions of being unfaithful
I'm a brother that is not an easy guy to anger
Fuck around with mine, one time, now you're in danger
Seen him on Reseda, with his chick, in his whip
With fear in his eyes, green light, decided to dip
‘Cause he got a BMW now he think he big shit
Catch him on my street now he working out his stick shift
Check this, hopped onto the freeway with a quickness
The way he changing lanes looking he scared shitless
A shook one, though we went our own way
If I catch his slipping this is what I'm gonna say
“Mess with mine, boy? Shit, I don't play”
Bitch moves plus snake fools equals bala with your name (BLAAAH)

Who's that? (Who’s that?)
Watch out! (Watch out!)
Mess With Mine?
Oh my god

Who's that? (Who’s that?)
Watch out! (Watch out!)
Mess With Mine?
Oh-my-god

Yo, you gotta get on this like it’s your only whip
Take it way past the blunt wraps and the Henny sips
Information from one, pass it down becomes a gun
Aim for the head. Pull the trigger living life you having fun?
Punk motherfucker, you think I won’t catch you?
Sneaking like a ninja. Dollar signs up in you?
Eyes see the lies. Use dealership swagger
The fuck you waiting for? Gun claps to warn you
No time for bullshitting. Save it for a kitten
Better make sure she’s not the honey that I’m dippin’
Status rearrange it’s changed not good for you
Your world already fucking them kids that want to spoil you
“I told you”. Man, you’re just a sidekick like Manolo
Boy wonder character fronting hard is a no-no
You don’t know who it is? Stop making false assumptions
Glen Exaktoh (Moving on you’re weak production)
32 got you dropping underground Eagle Rock
And dirty perving bridging grounds bless ‘em up inject the sounds
At the function, chilling lamping with The Proof
‘Tang ina, mess with mine? Feel the heat like the roof

Who's that? (Who’s that?)
Watch out! (Watch out!)
Mess With Mine?
Oh my god

Who's that? (Who’s that?)
Watch out! (Watch out!)
Mess With Mine?
Oh-my-god

Oh my god, let’s alleviate the drama
Messin’ with my money is like messin’ with my momma
I don’t even wanna tell ya, how that really make me wanna
Well imagine you a ant & my foot is steppin’ on ya
Payback is a bitch & when that bitch want you call her
You better apologize & show her all the shit you bought her
Find ya self in a bad spot messin’ with mine
Like tryin’ to buy toilet paper and the debit decline
I know this fooligan, robbed some dudes that I introduced to him
And even made it seem like I had some shit to do with it
So now I can’t wait til’ I see him in the street
It’s going down like James Brown unless he see me & retreat
Maybe it’s just the way I was raised by momma
But I don’t mess around, homie. I believe in karma
So, just know, it’s a lesson in life
Any & every time that you messin’ with mine, homie

Who's that? (Who’s that?)
Watch out! (Watch out!)
Mess With Mine?
Oh my god

Who's that? (Who’s that?)
Watch out! (Watch out!)
Mess With Mine?
Oh-my-god
Track Name: Lost Angels
Lost Angels

Her name is Marie. Filipina, brown eyes
Moved to LA so she could better her life
Left the Philippines to find her husband to be
And a college education to support family
She's beautiful intelligent every man's dream
She's a full time student attending at USC
She graduates with honors get's that business degree
And buys a two story home over looking the sea
Loves that big city life so she all about the C.R.E.A.M.
American dream club scene know what I mean
Men come and go cause she's always at the office
She's workaholic just focused on her profits
Yes, Marie has got her taste of success
But what's success with nobody to share it with
What she don't know is that she's living a lie
‘Cause this city has a thing for misinterpreting life

The city, at times, can leave you dream, hoping
Leaving you to pick up the pieces that it has broken
An unforgiving town hitting from all angles
Giving no pity the city of lost angels

Living in the heart of it in out of it
Beef with roadblocks replies to who positioned it
Act like you want it take a stab at it
Son we roll deep popusaos understand it
More than just a passion when words front actions
Their premium too high (the rest keep crashin)
The city's open space too loose for you
‘Cause the pressure hard to measure on top of you
(You) Starting to have regrets cause you ain't getting respect?
Complaining of long nights and your lacking of rest
Truth is, hard work shouldn't settle for less
This city could give fuck if you ain't giving your best
Gotta be from another planet this city could barely manage
Go ‘head, let them have it going against the granite
Not a knack of raw talent with practice becomes habit
The exception not the rule that's working to your advantage

The city at times can leave you dream, hoping
Leaving you to pick up the pieces that it has broken
An unforgiving town hitting from all angles
Giving no pity the city of lost angels

Them they make it happen. Inspiration for some
What’s the angle of those posted up til comes?
Shoebox, banks, airports, bus terminals
The big city magnet attracting all the generals
Stars, they’re working hard tonight
Here’s tip let it reach those jerked out of sight
Your future looks bright don’t forget your power bills
With life, you get chills warm it up with strong will
Keep the fire burning. Everyday steady learning
Getting taxed the main concern off the books that we be earning
Remain scuba opposite of Ferris Bueller
Work hard for cheese or Monterey jack for gouda
Do what you must. Make sure it don’t reflect mine
Manila to L.A. I’m surrounded by sunshine
Hip to the rules coming in from other places
A Los Angeleno Pumas with fat laces

The city at times can leave you dream, hoping
Leaving you to pick up the pieces that it has broken
An unforgiving town hitting from all angles
Giving no pity the city of lost angels
Track Name: So Fire
So Fire

It was one of those nights. Do I need to mention?
Cool chillin' at the bar payin' no attention
Just being myself never one for pimpin’
$15 drinks got me babysittin'
Then, she takes the seat next to me
So we confidently conversate casually
As I sit tight, all night shorty spittin' game like,
“You’re such a nice guy”. I'm just being polite
Well, you know, I'm too busy for relations
Coincidence we people with similar situations
Compliments was her plan of attack
Her hand now caressing my lap
Whoa! Full court trap cause she feeling me bad
Did I lead her to believe that I was her man?
She gazed into my eyes while she lickin' her lips
Proceeded to speak her mind and it went like this

I just want to get with you
Let me know, maybe. If we,
Can flex it mentally?
Get down
‘Cause I just want to take it past
The first page make it last
Keep it going. Time is golden
Get down.

Girl, your whole vibe is fresh
You think I'm Mr. Right cause I treat you with respect?
You say that I'm your match?
Don't rush your crush. Keep your feelings intact
So, you want to know what L.A.'s like?
You loving life cause you found the "gentleman" type
You need to find a man that'll make you his wife
I'm just a quick-strike stop believing the hype

Now just ‘cause I rock microphones
Put me in that Twilight Zone
Singles direction, good intentions
Caught up in a mess that I wasn't expecting
Skeptic, She invites me in
Patron in her hand with that devilish grin
Just to feel safe had to phone a friend,
Four shots to the dome as the clock strikes ten
Two-step dub club for five minutes
Now she feeling
The need to be home, oh no
My friend knew the deal so he left us alone.
Right then and there was the moment of truth
Palms started to sweat. She got on the bed
She whispered into my ear and caressed my chest
The temperature rose and then she said

I just want to get with you
Let me know, maybe. If we,
Can flex it mentally?
Get down
‘Cause I just want to take it past
The first page make it last
Keep it going. Time is golden
Get down.

Whoa, Do you think it's possible?
We look past these obstacles?
‘Cause, I see I know what you want. But,
I'm not trying to be no pawn. So,
You and I don't have to play games
Straight up, don't say no names
I see the way you dig my act,
It's best to keep your feelings in check.

Soda pop. Figure eight. Like that?
Damn, fashionista glam
Baby, got that potion magnetizing
Heat radiate that thang she packing (Uuuhhh)
Let me know what’s good
I don’t want to be misunderstood
Undercover type like, “No I’m not.”
Yes, you is Miss Cherry knot
Can’t pop Patron shots with the Hennessey
Caught her side ways eyeballing me
So I unlock the zoom
She got branded worked the room
I just landed (Uuuhhh)
What the talk about?
Stars come out tonight. Different routes
Yo, I get biz sparked the convo. Then it went like this

I just want to get with you
Let me know, maybe. If we,
Can flex it mentally?
Get down
‘Cause I just want to take it past
The first page make it last
Keep it going. Time is golden
Get down.

I see you doing your thang
But I had to spit the slang
Eye contact you inviting
Body language no denying
Look Ma, let’s keep it real simple
I’m lamping with my people
Then again, they know waddup
It’s on you now. So wassup?
Track Name: Like This feat. Bambu
Like This feat. Bambu

This is a tap on the back
It's the truth when I say we coming for what you have
Its not a threat, its what I'm promising
It's so astonishing I'm never lacking the confidence
Positive, despite negative comments kid
I hear you hollering, you hate it or you loving it
People tell me you're mocking it, you just jockin it
Smoke blowing compliments, there's nothing you're accomplishing
Nothing more than a complement opposite of the dominant
Your future never prominent here or any continent
Shots I'm sending men with no hesitance
Watch me as i get it in guarantee you'll remember it
Kreative Thought, synonymous to intelligent
Ladies and gentlemen, I recommend you tell a friend,
Sister or brethren. Twitter or text messaging
Mention it ‘til it's evident recognize who you’re messing with

When the keys go and the drums go
And the strings go and the bass go
Hit the lights and get ‘em hype. The Natives gone get it right
Play something that’s guaranteed they gone sing it the whole night
Like this
Awe yeah awe yeah
Like this
Awe yeah awe yeah
Like this
Awe yeah awe yeah
Like this
Awe yeah awe yeah

Do what you feel if it’s real, for real
Yo, dead all the bull subtract it from the whole
Yo, bust up the dance. Yo Asi, hit record
Easily bored plus time I can’t afford
Runners up front with no batons to pass
Expecting co-signs. But, how ling will they last?
The lease don’t run out. We shoving out the mail
Spin with cinderellas then I pin the tails
What the big boss chat that you’re talking about?
Barely steal not full. High jacking you’re route
We hopping off the cloud. Taking your crowd
Tell Simon Garfunk that my band gets loud
Can’t cool it down. Still getting hot this year
Rap with other artists. Spit no fear
Tables turning on you that hoe Suzy is thick
Tighten up your strings ‘cause we rocking our kicks

When the keys go and the drums go
And the strings go and the bass go
Hit the lights and get ‘em hype. The Natives gone get it right
Play something that’s guaranteed they gonna sing it the whole night
Like this
Awe yeah awe yeah
Like this
Awe yeah awe yeah
Like this
Awe yeah awe yeah
Like this
Awe yeah awe yeah

My mic stand starts swaying as the band kept playing
And my head gyrating crowd digging what I’m saying
Unanimously making blatant statements over the bass
And the kick start shaking women in the place,
With little grins on they faces. Feeling the way I lay it
Over any kind of Rhythm Native break
Weather you shaving your head or keep a fade, Slave to little waves,
Ten-thousand dollar dangling chain. Asi wait
‘Til the message is apparent to the parents and the children
That the president with melanin should not get you to chillin’
And pissing that money away that could have went to a school
Get funneled to keep a silver spoon far from Yooooooooooou
But tonight it’s a jam. Grab an instrument, or fuck it, clap a hand
Please stand for the boom-boom clack and the keys and guitar
Follow these dudes hard. Close your tab at the bar. And BOUNCE
Track Name: Take Off (Outro)
Take Off (Outro)

We can take off today you know,
We can take off today and go
Just as far as you like
As far as you like, baby

Down to earth but can’t wait to catch the next flight
The Funky brown pirate posted on the blind sight
Waited for a blink for this here to pop
It takes time, x amount of work a lot
But today is a new day like Fridays gettin new pay
Bullshtting making music sun rays what my crew say
When I find my way back then Manila I be at
Balikbayans in the zones got clones of feminine fats
My visa from Brasil gonna bust in two years
Tokyo with huns but are your pto’s cleared?
‘Cause the limit after this is limitless
Bogart whale casino type so forward to this.
From start to the present lifeswell how we living
Made our own lane trod the road What's forbidden
If you sick of the drama plus all the ill feelings
Its time to take flight.. take flight.. take flight

We can take off today you know,
We can take off today and go
Just as far as you like
As far as you like, baby

We hit the ground running and never looked back
Visions of success had our eyes on the tarmac
Peep the work ethic from Monday to Sunday
Some say this music was bound to happen someday
Today's that one day, Clear out the runway
The San Fernando Valley boys are coming to your country
Yo, it's Van Nuys to L-A-X
Grab my boarding pass & breeze through the security check
On a 747 or a private jet
Who got next? Rhythm Natives! Who want test?
Off to other nations Europe, Africa or Asia
South America, Australia, Canada or Jamaica
Really though, It don't matter the destination
Business or for pleasure not taking on limitations
This is your invitation come fly let's do this
Putting stamps on my passport all from making music. Come on!

We can take off today you know,
We can take off today and go
Just as far as you like
As far as you like, baby (Won’t you fly with me)

We can take off today you know,
We can take off today and go
Just as far as you like
As far as you like, baby (Won’t you fly with me)
