shane keaney Always impressive when artists make music with substance — into something cool and listenable. And that's what's accomplished here. The blend of TPA, Lif, and Ayla could seem hard to pull off, but it works! Lyrically every song is great, but "Complete" is the track I keep winding back. Favorite track: Complete.

Shine Bright 04:31
Verse 1 It's an adventure It's an occurrence With no deterrents Patience is the key, even though it feels urgent Do you have the strength to sit with each moment? Identify your place in the scheme And then own it? Zoom out and see the overall picture Take the thoughts with ya Use pen to draft scripture In the folds of time The annals remind Of the missteps that crumbled kingdoms, and we'll find Amidst the ruins strands of grass now grew in Displaying that the birth of an era had been looming The new information breathes some new energy A positive vibe that is available plentifully What will you do with it? Be a true cynic? Or will your legacy show that you grew with it? Take the path that leads to more light Don't miss out! This is your chance to shine bright! Verse 2 Where can we take you at this turn? On the surface of the sun, we may not get burned So celestial Extra terrestrial Music made with love, resurrecting you Up from the sludge Up from the grind Free from the shackles Free from the bind Sight for the blind With some 8D glasses Extra dimensions Best of intentions Best not to mention heights of ascension To those who would throw the wrench in Gut wrenching to think we don't all want to fly If you're staying in the former states of mind, goodbye I see new horizons Yes, the sun's rising So awe inspiring Watch us just dive in Thriving as we bask in the light Don't miss out This is your chance to shine bright END SONG

Intro (Ayla) Sail away — I have not called for nothin,’ I have not called for nothin’ this way — and from these bars I'm leadin', into the arms of freedom VERSE 1 Damn I need something break me out of this shell Damn I need an angel lift me outta my hell The world looks pale whenever I can't create It's romance... I dance with ideas that I take to the very edge of reason til they're left barely breathing Don't wanna fall across that line, but I'm leaning There's gotta be something more fulfilling There's gotta be a place that isn't based on being laced up with millions Feels like every single breath we're taking is commodified My mind is full of shit I seem to think I oughta buy... And these are just some words from a caged bird... whose wings remain strong My flight is my song I hope to bring you along to sift through clouds And hover bout a mile above a world gone wild And maybe not descend until we reach the earth's end If the harmony we seek ain't found We'll fly again CHORUS (Mr. Lif) Now I understand why the caged bird sings The melody can help em see the beauty in things Now I understand all the caged bird's thoughts The melody's essentially the key to the lock Now I understand why the caged bird sings The melody can help em see the beauty in things Now I understand all the caged bird's thoughts The melody's essentially the key to the lock Chorus (Ayla) Sail away — I have not called for nothin,’ I have not called for nothin’ this way — and from these bars I'm leadin', into the arms of freedom VERSE 2 Look man, I'm out here struggling Cause the pressures of the world are so troubling I take a look in the mirror and I see my harsh truths I try to put my finer qualities to good use I identify myself and try to live my own truth I know I'm on a path, but sometimes a need proof A sign or a hint Please throw me a bone... Words are my oasis Songs are my embraces These are the tender moments where hopes float across oceans Seas part and avenues open The tangled web... is curious with an angled head It speaks the various words that anger said My levelheadedness may be my greatest asset As I shuffle cards to wriggle from this widely cast net Are you hearing my song? See my wingspan widen? I'm tryin' A leap of faith to keep flying Verse (Ayla) Wings clipped, tied tip to toe, stalking, walking 'long the edges you were grown with Shown this, told the mold was a permanent form, but your heart wouldn't hold this Roll the dice, melt the ice - it is a furious thing when the illusion dies Eyes wide, open to be chosen by a life you will not choose to be caged by In the call, in the stalling feet dug deep, heels hold to the memory of what's Known, shown to be, and though it is comfort it is not home you see This dare is a deep one A step off the edge and just jump one A voice is a song if you use it The fall is a flight if you choose it Chorus (Mr. Lif) Now I understand why the caged bird sings The melody can help ‘em see the beauty in things Now I understand all the caged bird's thoughts The melody's essentially the key to the lock Now I understand why the caged bird sings The melody can help ‘em see the beauty in things Now I understand all the caged bird's thoughts The melody's essentially the key to the lock Chorus (Ayla) Sail away — I have not called for nothin,’ I have not called for nothin’ this way — and from these bars I'm leadin', into the arms of freedom END SONG

Intro (Ayla) What is it you need? (I am still, and I am quiet silence) Verse 1 (Mr. Lif) He grew up as a music fan The truest fan Catch him years later with a mic in his hand He's all over the world touring Exploring Familiar with some lands he once considered foreign Warring with some new instabilities So many places Many new proximities New faces that he couldn't compute So it's time now to focus on home and take root He worked real hard for years he saved up Found the right house, now his mind is made up Just a little slice of that American dream That can make you wanna vomit if there's too much cream He's got the house now He's got the car Consumerism says he hasn't gone too far He furnished the crib with only quality's peak Is this what it takes to make our lives complete? Chorus (Ayla) I am made of restless, turns me from this game I try to fill the questions, but they're coming just the same Into this lap of glory, into this endless feast I feel the taste of hunger, a mind still wondering For without starling swirls of thoughts Running through like forest fire I am still, and I am quiet silence… I am still, and I am quiet silence… I am still, and I am quiet silence… Verse 2 (Mr. Lif) Jane She felt her life was mundane Every day Same job Hopping on the train Sitting at a desk Where she couldn't care less about her work related strife, yet she felt stressed The emptiness The search for a higher meaning She lost hope and came close to not dreaming Vapid Feeling trapped without a key She'd come home from work and watch TV Search the internet for stuff that she could get Big heavy shit that made the post man sweat Open up the door and just let it all in A temporary high that would soon wear thin Her souls screaming Feeling trapped within She's in too deep to see what's happenin' Her house so cluttered with things that she'd seek Is this what it takes to make our lives complete? Chorus (Ayla) I am made of longing, a fierce and graceful shout And though I try to hold it in my arms fly wild about These things they try to chain me, but the key is in my hand The fear of letting go recede to seize a new command, that Without starling swirls of thoughts Running through like forest fire I am still, and I am quiet silence… I am still, and I am quiet silence… I am still, and I am quiet silence… Verse 3 (Mr. Lif) He's had enough She's had enough The bills piled up Seems having "stuff" doesn't make life plush He's thinking I need to get away She's thinking I need to get away By chance, they both stay at a little resort Dedicated to thought Where you silence the world And let your thoughts unfurl A vacation Based on meditation She bumped into him one day while he was pacin' She apologized He apologized They talked took a walk Immersed in deep thoughts Exploring the lows within the civilized highs Turns out they both want simplified lives Addition by subtraction That's the action They both went back to their cribs to start packin' Whatever's not essential, they delete Simplicity A way to make life more complete Chorus (Ayla) Without strings I’m boundless, without walls, released I have no more desire, but for the vow of peace Without holding tightly, without grasping reach These hands can open wider, to give out all we seek And without starling swirls of thoughts Running through like forest fire I am still, and I am quiet silence… I am still, and I am quiet silence… I am still, and I am quiet silence… Outra (Ayla) What is it you need? (I am still, and I am quiet silence) Only just to breathe... (I am still, and I am quiet silence)

Chorus (Ayla) Ricochet syllables, undefeatable Tongue like a wager, later is made but won't Grab this moment alive, lift, flee or fight This battle not made of fists but of Ricochet syllables, undefeatable Tongue like a wager, later is made but won't Grab this moment alive, lift, flee or fight This battle not made of fists but of… You gotta reach your name Listen as it falls around You - gotta call this game Take it and run on, til you… (run on, run on…) Verse 1 (Mr. Lif) Now lemme pitch bombs Switch forms Switch norms Perform in dorms Ring the alarm You late for class? Well then that's that ass But tell em you were listening to this and you'll pass I'm swiftly gifted (Now look what Lif did) The earth has shifted (He's magic Mystic) The weather changed Soon as he grew another brain I lock most in the cosmos and maintain You filing a complaint? Man, you wanna complain? I pull you in for a handshake, then I maim I change your structure Cause I'm the sculptor I checked your skull bruh It looks discolored So I splash paint so faint it ain't there The mural is perilous Portrait of nightmare Reoccurring I see you blurring You're physically fading I'm oscillating.... Chorus (Ayla) Ricochet syllables, undefeatable Tongue like a wager, later is made but won't Grab this moment alive, lift, flee or fight This battle not made of fists but of Ricochet syllables, undefeatable Tongue like a wager, later is made but won't Grab this moment alive, lift, flee or fight This battle not made of fists but of… You gotta reach your name Listen as it falls around You - gotta call this game Take it and run on, til you… (run on, run on…) Verse 2 (Zumbi of Zion I) its the mythical master math general-science equation rock evolve decibels sit back relax its all bless-able- mic chrome my oms are conceptual- data bank think tank consensual- thoughts patterns emerge are mad flexible- verbs get served when i swerve- catalytic convert my nerves from the surge- electro magnetic- panoramic- run in panic the foot stomp gigantic- old school tim boot bullet proof coupe with a soul loop galvanize the whole troop- energetic calisthenic the neck snap whippin ya wig back so let it- flow cleaner radiant so I say medina- thru the gradient we maintain life's sweeter Chorus (Ayla) Ricochet syllables, undefeatable Tongue like a wager, later is made but won't Grab this moment alive, lift, flee or fight This battle not made of fists but of Ricochet syllables, undefeatable Tongue like a wager, later is made but won't Grab this moment alive, lift, flee or fight This battle not made of fists but of… You gotta reach your name Listen as it falls around You - gotta call this game Take it and run on, til you… (run on, run on…) Verse 3 (Mr. Lif) I'm at happy hour With Rutger Hauer The Hitcher The picture... Makes the colors seem richer The richter Splits in half from earth crush Then the fire from the fuse Refused to burn brush The earth has land but chose to pose water The sacrifice diced on a Liquid altar... Regenerated Emulated proof of life after Forensics point their pens at Spell caster At which point I slip through wormhole Set on turbo While hypothermal Cryogenic sleep keep my rap style fresh My form don.. titanium My new flesh Now which MC's flip galaxies with ease Besides me The human equinox With locks I rip bars And juggle stars Over spans of time To reach far Beyond man's design Chorus (Ayla) Ricochet syllables, undefeatable Tongue like a wager, later is made but won't Grab this moment alive, lift, flee or fight This battle not made of fists but of Ricochet syllables, undefeatable Tongue like a wager, later is made but won't Grab this moment alive, lift, flee or fight This battle not made of fists but of… You gotta reach your name Listen as it falls around You - gotta call this game Take it and run on, til you… (run on, run on…) END SONG

Intro (Mr. Lif) Now what's the other side look like but pure light? Sip from the glory immersed in your fight Rise from your plight Leap to new heights Your fire ignite til you illuminate night Verse 1 (Mr. Lif) I was getting the crowd just as hyped as they can be Now they wanna see if I can truly MC The Master of Ceremonies Soul controller Off hand Without a stand The mic holder That when I stepped back and busted a verse It was so damn raw, the crowd nearly dispersed They were ducking for safety and running for cover The mic glowed So I let it go, and it hovered The doors lock Now meet Lif, the Warlock "But he was such a nice guy" You're in shock The beast released and you can see it on stage A transformation Now warn the nation The sensation of intrigue fills your mind I take a glance See you're entranced Now you're mine And I won't let you go Til we reach the pinnacle A couple cats in the back Are y'all cynical? I reverse the venue So I can tell you to your face with a wave of bass Douse you in that DJ spin back Pause... Give em just a moment to react Now we're back with the hacksaw Jim Duggan You thought the show was over, well you were buggin' Now everybody STOP Now lemme hear you say GO! ("GO!!") Crowd Control Chorus (Ayla) Hear - while we spinning here Story wound as a spool of sound Weaving you Hear - while we spinning here Story wound as a spool of sound Weaving you Verse 2 (Mr. Lif) Now I've got sole control of this M.I.(C) That's in my.. Palm Some consider this a napalm.. bomb You're not right, but not wrong It unconfirmed, so just learn and sing along You get religious with this like a psalm Bottom line with rhyme you can't go wrong You heard this? The purpose to take you beyond So you can get past setbacks and stand strong The urge to listen To inhibitions Collides with desires to thrive and have visions The path is to see this clash and move through Observe Wait for my words And on 2.. We go We flowin' in our own direction With rare selections To clear the spectrum One Now the job is only half done Two As we agreed, you bust through Now what's the other side look like but pure light? Sip from the glory, immersed your fight Rise from your plight Leap to new heights Your fire ignite Til you illuminate night Now when I snap my fingers, everybody come to Remember these words I used And follow through Now everybody STOP!.. Now let me hear you say GO! (Go!!) Crowd Control Verse 3 (Ayla) They swarm like hornets, I was born to pour this Came from a flame that can't be extinguished Lifted to tip the scale to the witness Tongue takes a life of it's own, and I’m in this Mind to word, fear to verb, pin it Take an eruption of awe and just spin it Dancer of parable rain to the maker Awake to the sleepwalking walk like a seeker Chorus (Ayla) Hear - while we spinning here Story wound as a spool of sound Weaving you Outro (x2) Now what's the other side look like but pure light? Sip from the glory immersed in your fight Rise from your plight Leap to new heights Your fire ignite til you illuminate night END SONG

Chorus (Ayla) Tails flip, time slips, restoring the balance seems ya Bend the frame, see where your dreams wanna meet you Face to face into the give way into Time, slip, plans tip, reworking the shape of it seems ya Sew yourself in surrender, can you turn your Eye to eye whatcha see there? Verse 1 (Mr. Lif) This is not about the death of your physical form Nor is this just another spiritual song It's about being present without clinging to the now Accepting changes without clinging to the how Fluidity Rigidity on opposite poles Divided by the rat race and all of our goals The long quest for balance in a world that's off kilter Stress'll kill ya So it's best just to filter The madness out The quest for status out Silence your mind Try and take a look at your route How does that path look? Has it been true to your core? If not The other shoe drop It might get raw The quest for sanctuary often riddled with setbacks Close calls And moments that you'd like to get back But let the reins go Realize life flows If you're following your heart You're gonna like where you go Chorus (Ayla) Tails flip, time slips, restoring the balance seems ya Bend the frame, see where your dreams wanna meet you Face to face into the give way into Time, slip, plans tip, reworking the shape of it seems ya Sew yourself in surrender, can you turn your Eye to eye whatcha see there? Verse 2 (Chali 2na) Transform My plan of attach is hands on We adapt Never land on my back I'm in grand form We stand strong Pushing forth with this metamorphosis Pharaohs and sorcerers tortured us But couldn't force us to quit Enforcing the gift given Herbals help the sense Metaphor martial art Verbal self defense I'm Bruce Lee with the claw shaped scars And crews flee when my flow take charge We hate frauds... Telegraph Never humorous It's the paragraph pugilist they call Tuna Fish My accolades are numerous You and your crew are a consumer risk Kumite Tuna stay super Team up with Mr. Lif Not here to dispatch fists We match wits with verbal tactics that could crack bricks We back bitch Scratching your back itch with classics When rap switched to darkness We kept our match lit Chorus (Ayla) Tails flip, time slips, restoring the balance seems ya Bend the frame, see where your dreams wanna meet you Face to face into the give way into Time, slip, plans tip, reworking the shape of it seems ya Sew yourself in surrender, can you turn your Eye to eye whatcha see there? Verse 3 (Ayla) We're detached from the center from the moment we arrive, we Strive and strain steps to the desk to the drive and Told this is it, work hard, buy shit, it Holds us in, tight rope and tightening — yet, Truth - built into our bones, cells and souls, Not a far off thing but takes some Listening, let it go, choice and a dare To nod to the beauty of the duty you find there… Whatcha find there… Whatcha find there… Whatcha find, whatcha find... Bridge (Chali & Mr. Lif) You shouldn't really dwell on what we will or won't say You've entered the verbal Kumite Say Matae Surrender your shell Turn to spiritual form Nothing lasts forever man, we all transform Outro (Ayla) Truth - built into our bones, cells and souls, Not a far off thing but takes some Listening, let it go, choice and a dare To nod to the beauty of the duty you find there… END SONG

Chorus x2 (Mr. Lif) Yes my love, I was dreaming of banjos Don't mean to be aloof, I'm just searching for examples To explain how I adore you Ms. Explore your bliss Something that I'll never resist Yes my love, I was dreaming of banjos Don't mean to be aloof, I'm just searching for examples To explain how I adore you Ms. Explore your bliss We'll take it slow, just like this... Verse 1 (Mr. Lif) Lady, you it's you that I truly adore But I like to take my time and explore Build the type of rapport we both can rely on Settle misunderstandings so they soon will be bygones I'm on my own shit most of the time To open my mind when composing a rhyme... Space & exploration Unearth the sensations that bring poetry forth A turbulent course A source of inspiration A means to break through Is you You're there with me whenever I groove My muse And when we're in tune, we can't lose But when we're off course, we both suffer the loss The tension can sometimes climb beyond mention When we learn lessons They're applied to ascension Crisis averted deleting the stress... Plus you're looking so gorgeous in that dress... Chorus x2 (Ayla) Yes my love, I was dreaming of banjos Don't mean to be aloof, I'm just searching for examples To explain how I adore you Ms. Explore your bliss We'll take it slow, just like this... Verse 2 (Mr. Lif) Now let's break it down Let's escape the town And go embrace a place that's isn't currently renowned A hidden gem Maybe a jewel you'll cherish Where I will restore and adore til you're nourished We seem to flourish in these situations Our connection doesn't only come alive when on vacations The day to day Can make the world fade away After all the things that we've endured We're here to stay So let's remain present with our vision toward future And if you're feeling tapped out Then, lemme renew you And I will need to lean on you too This world is brutal With proper support, I see the fruitful... light in this journey and grasp the optimism All of this is possible If we adopt the proper rhythm Proper living We're deleting the stress Plus, you're looking so gorgeous I feel blessed Chorus (Ayla) Yes my love, I was dreaming of banjos Don't mean to be aloof, I'm just searching for examples To explain how I adore you Ms. Explore your bliss We'll take it slow, just like this... Verse 3 (Ayla) There was a time when the mind spoke above the heart And every choice was to prove our rightness, had to fight this, Fight for the win, win for the proving of circular thought Lost the soul of the way we began this, just for the love — how could we abandon? Then one day I woke from the storm, walked away and met you in the Form of a love fed up with the same kind of fakeness, Looking for honesty, baring the weakness, Rage and the sadness, brave as you gave this, Mirrored my own and it makes this safe A base to build upon, story to yield to the real of the choice To keep on givin' like the sun gives light Giving like the dark gives night You gotta breathe me inside... Chorus x2 (Mr. Lif) Yes my love, I was dreaming of banjos Don't mean to be aloof, I'm just searching for examples To explain how I adore you Ms. Explore your bliss Something that I'll never resist Yes my love, I was dreaming of banjos Don't mean to be aloof, I'm just searching for examples To explain how I adore you Ms. Explore your bliss We'll take it slow, just like this... Chorus x2 (Ayla) Yes my love, I was dreaming of banjos Don't mean to be aloof, I'm just searching for examples To explain how I adore you Ms. Explore your bliss We'll take it slow, just like this...

Verse 1 (Mr. Lif) Yes! Let us start this quest Let me say first of all that I feel blessed Just waking up every day is a prize Feeling all the love before I open my eyes It wasn't always like this Strife is... A conduit to make us feel lifeless.. So lost in the adds, fads, drags us down To a lower level where we can't be found But in this underground we forge our own paths The sun still shines And yes we do laugh Yes we do have the things you wanna sell us Fulfilled from within despite what you tell us Rebellious is the spirit that flies.. So ethereal that earth becomes skies... I've gotta say with no further ado We're happy to be here with you Chorus (Ayla) So you can hold all of the folds of all these parts that become soul When waves crash shorelines to this heart, and beat by beat taken apart… So you can hold all of the folds of all these parts that become soul When waves crash shorelines to this heart, and beat by beat taken apart… So you can hold all of the folds of all these parts that become soul When waves crash shorelines to this heart, and beat by beat taken apart… Verse 2 (Mr. Lif) It's just another harsh case of cannibalism Oops, I really meant to say capitalism... After the rhythm dies down... Will it revitalize your soul when you remember the sound? If not, you're listening to audio garbage Shitty as can be R.I.P. No homage We hit the lab, and we're hoping to accomplish Jams that'll lead you to the land that's promised Honest Raw sentiments project You see us at the set And we instantly connect Cause we've been thinking bout y'all for days So here's a little something for us modern day slaves... No companies, no filters, no residue Just the impact of this vibe we're sending you I've gotta say with no further ado We're happy to be here with you Chorus (Ayla) So you can hold all of the folds of all these parts that become soul When waves crash shorelines to this heart, and beat by beat taken apart… So you can hold all of the folds of all these parts that become soul When waves crash shorelines to this heart, and beat by beat taken apart… So you can hold all of the folds of all these parts that become soul When waves crash shorelines to this heart, and beat by beat taken apart… Verse 3 (Mr. Lif) "Why" A usual way we start questions "How" we advance through life & learn lessons Suggestions are made and then explored I'm positive Whatever's negative gets ignored We're on a mission Can you see that? I float a theory through the air, now can you breathe that? If you inhale Then you embark on a tale Don't grieve over things you leave Just set sail There's no fail There is only success If you learn from mistakes you made, and progress Maybe it's best that we halt this discussion Sit back and just bathe in percussion Let the rhythm just carry us away As we twirl through the atmosphere And just sway I've gotta say with no further ado We're happy to be here with you Chorus (Ayla) So you can hold all of the folds of all these parts that become soul When waves crash shorelines to this heart, and beat by beat taken apart… So you can hold all of the folds of all these parts that become soul When waves crash shorelines to this heart, and beat by beat taken apart… So you can hold all of the folds of all these parts that become soul When waves crash shorelines to this heart, and beat by beat taken apart… END SONG

Lost & Found 06:17
Verse 1 (Mr. Lif) She loves travel Her heart flows where she chose With a routine Quickly pack the bags, and let's go In and out of hotels Travel light and propel From one spot to next spot She did so well.... Never really got attached to any one place More about the quantity Addicted to the pace Til one day... An unexpected stay In a place she kept secret So I'd rather not say Just know a feeling resonated in her chest so strong that she didn't feel like she could move on But still, the plane ticket had a time on it She was used to only doing what her mind wanted Though her spirit started to speak She wouldn't let it peak To the point where it would shuffle her agenda for the week But sitting on the plane to leave simply felt wrong Looking out the window with her face forlorn.... Chorus (Ayla) Long, long, long, long, long long, long way to go… Long, long, long, long, long long, long way to go… …… Taken to the edge, don’t hold back, just jump ahead Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not Gotta go every moment Long, long way to go, got a long, long way to go Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not Gotta go every moment …… Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go… Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go… Taken to the edge, don't hold back, just jump ahead Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not Gotta go every moment Verse 2 (Mr. Lif) Liftoff Takeoff Always on schedule Disregard silly words your gut keeps telling you Inner dialogue As she rides through the fog Up and through the clouds Then descent Touch down Now on the ground speeding to a meeting To tell you all the truth, She's aloof in the proceedings Couldn't shake the feeling that she didn't belong Now the music getting louder Heart singing that song Longing for this place she barely knew Life offers so many paths For you to choose Sometimes though, we're not meant to know But she listened to her inner voice It's telling her "go" She rose from the table Thanked the whole staff Chuckled under her breath to stop a full laugh Thank you all for coming out, but I've gotta go Please direct all your requests to so & so Same bags, same tags, same short notice She left to embark on a quest with one focus To unearth... This possible rebirth The fulfillment of understanding her purpose on earth No time to waste She's hopping on a flight The only way to make her and her fate unite She's living through passion Life on a whim Ascending through the night Now the journey begins Chorus (Ayla) Long, long, long, long, long long, long way to go… Long, long, long, long, long long, long way to go… …… Taken to the edge, don’t hold back, just jump ahead Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not Gotta go every moment Long, long way to go, got a long, long way to go Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not Gotta go every moment …… Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go… Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go… Taken to the edge, don't hold back, just jump ahead Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not Gotta go every moment Verse 3 (Mr. Lif) Finally she lands in this brand new land Luggage in tow With her heart in her hand She walk upon foreign soil once again But this time with every intent of staying Made calls to family Called some friends They didn't understand No, they couldn't comprehend A couple people even told her that she's crazy Thinking to herself on the low, "Well maybe..." Nevertheless, the quest must go on Doubts in her mind, she refused to prolong Never known to be thin skinned She looked within And let her exploration begin Discovery of many semi unturned stones From times she had visions of life with lush tones Envisioned herself before the pressures of the world And had a convo with that little bright eyed girl Those old ambitions Were so enriching They gave a new purpose to life A new rhythm She walked with a bop As she went to see spots That moved her with pure beauty She channelled more thoughts Her heart flourished and art nourished her soul Her creations shed a light upon the people she showed The love radiated Satiating the community Causing this to circulate a bliss quite beautifully Suitably spawned by feelings of calm That were anchored by an overwhelming sense she belonged All along she thought she simply had a flair For venturing around the globe until she came here Now she realizes that the furious pace Was her spirit seeking a feeling An energy A place A hundred thousand miles just to reach one zone Her luggage is unpacked She's finally at home Chorus (Ayla) Long, long, long, long, long long, long way to go… Long, long, long, long, long long, long way to go… …… Taken to the edge, don’t hold back, just jump ahead Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not Gotta go every moment Long, long way to go, got a long, long way to go Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not Gotta go every moment …… Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go… Long, long, long, long, long, long way to go… Taken to the edge, don't hold back, just jump ahead Choosing her name, naming herself, whether she knows or not Gotta go every moment END SONG
