Track Name: Aquatrium feat. Shing02 (Extended Version)
5am, pavement a hint of blue
opposite of mayhem
look for clues
no visible signs of tires,
lazy signals
way home from a long night out and about
faint sounds of paper routes
I can send shouts cross-town
check the time
the second hand pegged at first glance
starts to move in a quantum chance

with help from back of the eye lids
soles peel off the concrete
feel free to complete
unfinished poetry in a black book
with a hook to boot
staircase of air
past the mezzanine
eye level wit multiple tiers
while stories ascend
vacant offices signs for rent
sailing around the bend x3

upward stream will take you there
bizarre affair
balloon mind state
hovering straits
dock to ships, piers for windows
appear to kindle
giant murals painted by rays
chisels produce all shades of gray
sun dial towers over parks
light devours remnants of dark

diodes slowly fade to rest
material properties made to test
unprimed canvas staff of cables
early birds sound off in triplets

silhouette on billboard
getting up in the frame
without leaving a single trace
underneath, leaves waver like seaweed
train cars sleep in beds for eels
miniature models, life-size goals
am I flying? more like swimming in a

metropolitan aquarium
let go of equilibrium
million-volt phosphorescence
oscillating reflections

bit by bit
increase resolution
bit by bit
gain perspective
as I come down
rubber kiss the asphalt
eerie stillness,
teary yawn
hour glass smashed by
tide of dawn
Track Name: Sunbaked feat. Shing02
blazing sun can make you crazy
sauna streets can make you lazy
no ac
hit the fans, summertime in nyc

the bare skins can drive you crazy
what have I done for me lately
oh lady
gimme a chance, summertime in nyc

sweltering clothing, sugar rays, welterweight
asphalt humidity arrives in alternate waves
water hydrant sprays in the ways of children
hop puddles on pavement reflect the cadence
black and white and gray, love and hate
so classic like radio raheem
sounds careen off the walls and echo in halls
a short story long, twenty-four like jack b
nimble on the tracks of all trades
beats for cheese, eyes like knives, fixed on tease
a smile and a chat open doors like keys
so what am I supposed to do on trysts like these
the twists that follow got you weak in the knees
but the week is never-ending and the legs begging please
take me to a place where we can chill nomadic
and the hot spells take a back seat to the magic

flirting with the triple digit heat
prospects on the mound I'm a scout sweat dripping on the seats
you jealous 'cause they get butts in the stands
fans get rowdy at the players with their heads in the sand
the beach bodies and the hotties got the party jumping
but I'm on the boardwalk snapping instagrams
sipping iced blue bottle with the crew getting tanned
all the while my mind is a wandering…
a plan is a plan so you must overstand
that it's never set in stone unless you get a grand
on a ticket better brand that, patent that move or a pattern like a panda
independent plan that next step then you fill a gap like a tooth fairy
gotta be a busy bee if you want the queen
trust me, you don't want a brat oh it's tragic
you know comedy? shoot numbers automatic
