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!

Another week begins yet another weekend fades So much work to do, gotta battle through Deadlines looming Just trying to play my part, the modern masquerade Be the admin queen that I need to be Til it's time for Kitchen discos Eatin Al fresco Gin and tonic yeah let's go Wait just a minute now Dance just a minute now Don't stop just turn around Time is a runnin out Wait just a minute now Dance just a minute now Don't stop just turn around Time is a runnin out Yeah yeah you can’t phase me I’ll be smilin’ til I’m 80 We’re all a little bit crazy so Wait just a minute now Dance just a minute now Don't stop just turn around Time is a’ runnin out Wait just a minute now Dance just a minute now Time is a’ runnin out Don't stop just turn around Wait just a minute now Dance just a minute now Don't stop just turn around Time is a runnin out Wait just a minute now Dance just a minute now Don't stop just turn around Time is a runnin out

I Know 03:47
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 I know I know I know Go against the grain don’t emulate

El Viaje 04:27
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.

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
