[Sadat X]

Yeah, check it out, I'ma flow on this one

Yeah I'ma run with this for the ninety-two season

Yo check it out

I'ma give you somethin cat, this is what you need

You need a coach and I'm a damn good coach

Got the right approach, plus my pop had wins

Seed trickled down, six two and brown

When _Slow Down_ came out, at first it was MILD hit

A minute or two later, brothers on some WILD shit

Listen up, capture how I spree

Is it you, or is it me?

Made a mad verse, from first, stole second

Took the third and home it was out

That's what I'm about, that Nubian swing

Familiar ring, cash register ring

Pay the brothers, Jack the Ripper work hard

Then I'll be out, check it out, yo Peace God

Brand Nubian rock the set! (8X)

[Lord Jamar]


Fuck it up

Nineteen-ninety-two, uh!

Like this y'all

Well now this is for your clubs and your old school pubs

where niggaz get drunk and give in to the funk

Speakin of funk, this here be stink

The brothers up North can smell it in the clink

Well put down the Right Guard cause you got the right God

Matter of fact, we're comin right and exact

We got the brainiac style like Miles Davis

Save us, in the files of the shit that hit

It's time to make a run at five hundred yard dash

Five hundred G's sold and the shit went gold

Now was that bold, to predict while I kick it?

Brand Nubian fights, against the weak and the wicked

I got the baldhead dread Sadat and Sincere

Oh yes, the God is in here

_To the Rear_ makin shit sound clear

Plus collect the dough at the end of the show

Everybody know Brand Nubian kick that shit on stage

Cause it fits in a rage

Lord Jamar turn the page cause this rhyme is overflowin

And bring in the funky horn

Brand Nubian rock the set! (8X)

[Sadat X]

To really know this flavor you must understand the method

I might come up with a style, throw it down and say it's tired

Write a next one, smokin a blunt on the rooftop

And runnin with the sneakers or aiyyo hightops

Thanks to the dread for the roots green

Whole body is amped I must contain or appear

I might throw the peace at kids, go to rest and wake up goin

For days I get set off, I ain't got NO way of knowin

How could you fool a ruler? You still smokin wooler?

The first round pick, why'd The Knicks trade Rod Strick?

That man is nice!

You make acts to make tracks, I'm tired of frontin to em

Gonna step to em, cause they whole shit is dead

I'd rather tell em now, instead of fuckin with they head

Tired of frontin, it's like that huh

[Lord Jamar]

True indeed God why'knahmsayin, ain't no use frontin

Word to mother

Well don't look at things from the surface

A book without understanding is worthless

120 gave me plenty to chew on

Planted a seed and it grew (now that's true)

On to the road where we got shit sewed

when crackin shells, and gettin to the ?

I rest in the Rule but don't take it for a joke

I got an automatic tool.. don't make it have to smoke

Cause yo I'll bust off, In God We Trust, I'm not soft

When I'm droppin it, I'm just the opposite

Now that's hard..

Study lesson about Farad and Elijah

Won't surprise you to chill with God..

of the Universe, so when U.N.I.Verse

we gain a better understanding

Which is supreme, risin to the top like my Nubian team

and we don't stop!

Brand Nubian rock the set! (repeat to before fade)

[ad libs to outro]

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
