Track Name: Get Movin' (Feet Don't Fail Me Now)
I go back and forth, forced to go back,
Back to the place where the time is at.
Swinging my hips to the music that sounds worthy of an Ella scat.
If past is prologue, write it down and
Trespass on those vintage sounds.
The futures far don't take your bow,
Get moving feet don't fail me now

Don’t fail me now
Don’t fail me now
Don’t fail me now
Don’t fail me now. Don’t fail me now, don’t fail me now, get movin’ feet don’t fail me now
I said feet don’t fail me now!

I go back and forth, dance with a grin,
Take a look around and drink the energy in.
Say what you want don't mean a thing
Cos I'm just gonna sing sing sing.
The gentle crackle that you hear
When records spin in their first gear
Is from a language with no bounds
Get moving feet don't fail me now

Don’t fail me now
Don’t fail me now
Don’t fail me now
Don’t fail me now. Don’t fail me now, don’t fail me now, get movin’ feet don’t fail me now
I said feet don’t fail me now!

Check yo I need to focus
Desk job mediocre, poker face
Wearing a mask like the joker
The screen coma I’m overdosing on my smart phone
It’s another loner, the complex city roamer
Neanderthal
The random fool who kicks shots at the world and demands it all
I be that night owl
I’m walkin round with a white towel
Drinkin in the pubs till the alcohol’s wiped out

I go back and forth, dance with a grin,
Take a look around and drink the energy in.
Say what you want don't mean a thing
Cos I'm just gonna sing sing sing.
The gentle crackle that you hear
When records spin in their first gear
Is from a language with no bounds
Get moving feet don't fail me now

Don’t fail me now
Don’t fail me now
Don’t fail me now
Don’t fail me now. Don’t fail me now, don’t fail me now, get movin’ feet don’t fail me

Now!

Track Name: I Know
Time seems to be evolving here
My dreary days turn to playgrounds in oh so many ways
Right now I get to be my own boss
Work my own hours and I get to hang with this lot
Plenty of space to invigorate my soul and finally breathe

And I know and you know and he knows and she knows
That it doesn't just fall on your plate and
That to get what you want see it through it's your show
Go against the grain don't emulate
She knows and I know and you know and he knows
That it doesn't just fall on your plate and
That to get what you want see it through it's your show
Go against the grain don't emulate

I know I know I know
I know I know I know
Go against the grain don’t emulate

And I know and you know and he knows and she knows
That it doesn't just fall on your plate and
That to get what you want see it through it's your show
Go against the grain don't emulate
She knows and I know and you know and he knows
That it doesn't just fall on your plate and
That to get what you want see it through it's your show
Go against the grain don't emulate

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

I know, you know, he knows, she knows
That it doesn't just fall on your plate
To get what you want… it's your show
Go against the grain don't emulate
And I know and you know and he knows and she knows
That it doesn't just fall on your plate and
That to get what you want see it through it's your show
Go against the grain don't emulate

I know I know I know

Go against the grain don’t emulate
Track Name: El Viaje
El Viaje

Todo empezó, cuando era yo un chaval, un hijo del metal por los 90 descubriendo el rap,
si, haha, la música cuido de mi hoy sigo aquí con un boli y un papel escribiendo pa ti, Ya no hay estres que me pueda, nada me puede tumbar, metiendo triples con palabras, classy como Abdul Jabbar sigo en el juego, no estoy forrao, ni estuve en el talego, un galego en Bristol town, mezclando rimas con fuego. Son los Capers invadiendo tu salón, tu vigila el queso, el vino, somos 9 en formación que no se atranca, no debéis tirar de esta palanca pues alguno lo intentó y ganó la banca, les dió la blanca, pa arrancar el odio y el miedo, apaga la tele y abre un libro lo primero, sal siempre a la calle cuando el sol este en el cielo y disfruta de la vida como un niño un caramelo.

Chorus
Todo aquel que siente que no puede ganar lúchelo
y no se queden esperando
y se que es complicado pero siempre hay solución, si que hay, ay ay ay
Con la cabeza bien alta, hagan frente hasta el final, lúchenlo
vayan y retomen el mando,
y se que es complicado pero siempre hay una opción, si que hay, ay ay ay

La vida enseña solo al prestar atención, fanático del arte del error/repetición bien advenido, no importa si he ganado o perdido si es que el busto al vencedor es el disgusto del vencido y otra mañana voy tirando pal curro, la vida sigue y el futuro es oscuro, es que ando siempre sonriendo y sin un duro, poco falta pa que mande todo a tomar por ....! Ya no hay estres que me pueda, nada me puede tumbar, vivo la vida en cerveza, bebo la vida en el bar, este desorden verbal implica una habilidad, sumada a un conocimiento luego actitud multiplicó el total, Espero a nada y nada no me espera, impera la atención por el detalle entre calles va mi vereda, en la escuela del lápiz y el papel, ritmos y espuelas, acepté la realidad y escribo pa evitar secuelas,

Chorus:
Todo aquel que siente que no puede ganar lúchelo
y no se queden esperando
y se que es complicado pero siempre hay solución, si que hay, ay ay ay
Con la cabeza bien alta, hazles frente hasta el final, lúchenlo
vayan y retomen el mando,
y se que es complicado pero siempre hay una opción, si que hay, ay ay ay

Déjate llevar por nuestra música.
Que la vida no es para llorar.
Oportunidades todas únicas
Esta en ti el dejarlas escapar.
Track Name: Let's Start Again
Want what I want and I want it right now
Pour me another Zinfandel
Foxtrot, don’t you stop I’m mesmerised by you
Come hop aboard my carousel

So shake me up don’t break me down
I’m on my way we’re on our own
Shake me up don’t break me down
I’m on my way, let’s start again

Shake me up now
Shake, shake me up now

You take me in, free spin me round and
Electric energy ascends
Big swing, do your thing, encapsulate our mood
Let’s break the rules and skip the trends

So shake me up don’t break me down
I’m on my way we’re on our own
Shake me up don’t break me down
I’m on my way, let’s start again

Shake me up now
Shake, shake me up now

Shake me up don’t break me down
On my way we’re on our own
Shake me up don’t break me down
I’m on my way…
Hey
Hey
Let’s start again

Shake me up now
Shake shake me up now

So shake me up don’t break me down
I’m on my way we’re on our own
Shake me up don’t break me down
I’m on my way, let’s start again

Shake shake me up now!
Shake shake me up now!
Shake shake me up now!
Shake shake me up now!
Track Name: Feet Off The Ground
Secret summer escapades
From dusk to dawn unplanned
Nighttime lovers serenade
Each other on the Grand
I can feel it in the air
Magical and sweet
Drinks will flow, no one knows
Who they'll meet

I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Believing there's more to astound
I'm stealing the sights and the sounds
Yeah

Twisting through the cobbled streets
Where old and new collide
Bridges arch the waterways
That run and intertwine
Sun illuminates the scene
People smile and grin
Tipsy nights, heat ignites
The wild within

I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Believing there's more to astound
I'm stealing the sights and the sounds
Yeah

I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Believing there's more to astound
I'm stealing the sights and the sounds
Yeah
I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Believing there's more to astound
I'm stealing the sights and the sounds
Yeah

You know I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Believing there's more to astound
I'm keeping my feet off the ground
Yeah

Do do do, do do do
Do do do, do do do
Do do do, do do do
Do do do, do do do
Track Name: One More Drink
Just one drink
Just one drink

Just one drink
One more drink
One more drink
Just one more drink

La la lalalala la la lalalala la la lalalala la
La la lalalala la la lalalala la la lalalala la

I just went for a cheeky pint
But ones all I need to work up an appetite
Before you know it's half nine
And we're dancing on the tables
Who got the shots in singing la la lalalala
Losing the plot like la la lalalala
Fun while it lasts but now I'm in mourning
Money's all gone and the hangovers calling

Just one drink (and all I wanted was a quiet pint)
One more drink (yeah I'm on the search for a quiet life)
One more drink (check yo that's how it started but now I'm at party in a stranger's apartment)
Just one more drink (and all I wanted was a quiet pint)
One more drink (I'm in the search for a quiet life)
One more drink (check yo I need to slow down)
Just one more…
Just one more…
Just one more drink
One more drink

La la lalalala la la lalalala la la lalalala la
La la lalalala la la lalalala la la lalalala la

One more drink
One more drink
One more drink
