Straight up funk in your ear
If you really want it
[Repeat: 2X]
It's over here

And yo it's mad funkiness and we be blowing up blough
Tell me what you want boo and I'm a do it now its my turn da
Boss, baby, time to set it off be all up in your action with passion of course
Level with your mental, funk I get into
All of the things that you need to get into
Rock the set, straight up the concept cause we be going down
Diggy diggy, down, diggy down check

[Chorus: ]
I know that you want something from me (yeah)
Well I've got something I know you need
From the east to the west everybody get up now
(Get on up, Get on up)
'Cause this here's a party and we gotta get on down
(Break it down, Break it down)

Ah yes you'll check me out rugged and raw
It's all I can stand and I can't stand no more
I'm bugging, renegade hooligan damn
5 bad boys got my back hear the plan
never have you ever seen or never will you chec
a fly human being I'm as funky as it gets
so step back relax the wax is boom diggy
watch the boys breaking it down city to city

[Chorus: ]

It's over just like a wack track you can't get with this
so you gotta get with that no doubt in my mind
the base so phatt baby let me bring it on wiggy wack

Dreamwalker
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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Blue
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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
