All is forgiven All is forgiven All is forgiven

All is forgiven Sometimes I think about things before they happen

Floating around in my head for a while

All of a sudden it’s grown too big to handle

Changed its clothes and grown a mind of its own

Too loud to listen, too proud to put paper to the pen

Clean up this place from the vacuum of my head

Too many times zones 2000 planes

Take on the distance it only brings me back again

These books are overdue and there’s a tenderness inside

The depth of the liner watch the characters comes alive

Dip into the system feel the volume fill the space

Bending horizons fall into place All is forgiven

All is forgiven All is forgiven time will clean us Absolute

Absolution All is forgiven time is a genius Absolute Absolution All is forgiven All is forgiven

Why don’t we shift these shapes make the landscape disappear

Tectonic plates serving powers to your fears Sometimes I hear that voice when words were never spoken

Proceed with caution before glass is ever broken

Quantise the grove while it’s dancing in your head

Control emotions find them drifting instead

Too way feel better about it, go and knit some sweaters about it

Two stone statues trying hard not to laugh

Maybe there’s something in the movement, or the stillness of the air

Put that good stuff on ice and keep that elephant over there

Let’s shift through modern times, I hold the future past

None existing obstacles squarely in our path All is forgiven time will clean us

Absolute Absolution All is forgiven time is a genius Absolute Absolution All is forgiven time will clean us Absolute Absolution All is forgiven Absolute Absolution

Alekesam “Black Cowboy” LYRICS:

i turn show ponies into wild horses
i’m a black cowboy riding a dolphin
when you swim with me you can breathe the sea
see the breeze, be…
profiling, scuba dive, you feel me, i feel you
get up on me, canopy
enjoy the beast, like you was climbing trees

where you at
i’m trying to find you
it’s a long way to go
circle back
i’m trying to define you
it’s the wrong way to know

looking good, at the skyline
windblown, all shown
satellites, postcards
spun around, but i get there
riding well, we pace ourselves
shake those shells
rock the bells
you come to me from the future
how you do them things you do

where you at
i’m trying to find you
it’s a long way to go
circle back
i’m trying to define you
it’s the wrong way to know

morning eyes hi tide
uga booga valentine
ju ju clean craze
new sensual
